No bread? Let them eat cake, then! (source)
The inflation in Slovenia shows no inclination of returning to normal levels and it would take a super-human effort to bring it down rapidly. So our wise leadership had (once again) devised a cunning plan on how to bring down spending.
According to the minister of economy the nation “not be picky and shouldn’t complain about eating a day-old bread”. Now, a day old bread can be a really wonderful thing, I just sort of hate it when a minister with a government car, a driver, a government credit card and meals paid by the taxpayers, tells me what to eat and when to eat it. Call me marxist, but I see a slight credibility issue here.
But it turns out that this is nothing compared with the fact that PM Janez Janša has seen loafs of bread in the dustbin somewhere in this country and that prompted the following rhetorical idiotism: “As long as I see loafs of bread in the dustbins, things are not all that dramatic”.
Sounds much like Marie- Antoniette, no? And she was decapitated for it…
