Look, the first part of my title complies exactly with the thoughts of that mega-swot, the late (although he might be alive for all I know!) Herr Erwin Schrödinger and it is in line with the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics - got that?!
Now, the second half of my title complies with an even more hideously difficult subject, one that is so complex, so filled with paradox that mere mortals will never understand it. I refer, of course, to French law - yeeeeeees, quite!
So today in Paris, the Court of Justice of the Republic – a special tribunal for ministers, although one wonders why they should be given a special court - has found 'Mde. Permatan', aka: Mde. Christine Lagarde, both guilty and not guilty of abusing her power as the then French Minister of Finance when she allowed a €404 million (£340 million) bung award to be paid to a 'right dodgy dealer' called Bernard Tapie. Somehow, in some mysterious way, well this is French law, part of the, er, equation was in the form of that Hungarian dwarf, Sarkozy, who, through the blind stupidity of the French public, was actually and incredibly the President!
Anyway, if found guilty, 'Mde. Permatan' faced a one-year term and a €15,000 (£13,000) fine. Well, she was found guilty but the court imposed no penalty! Look, if your head is aching as you try to understand this might I suggest you return to a study of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, you will find it so much easier!
