  • “It wasn’t us,” was their refrain.
    The regulators are to blame.
    They failed to prick our growing bubble.
    They are the cause of all this trouble!
    And China too, and central bankers,
    Who failed to give us decent anchors.

    Yep. A bit like a repeat rapist blaming the police for not stopping him.
