We\’ll have all sorts coming out of the woodwork claiming that this shows what is wrong with contemporary society etc. And they may well be right.

Continuously lose money and not have a sugar daddy to cover the losses? Go bust.
This isn\’t therefore evidence of how the system is screwed up. This is evidence of the system dealing with screw ups.
