who will be next World Bank President What will they do


The boys from Brazil. Rumours are coming in thick and fast that staff in the Bank's Brazil office won't be welcoming back one Wolfowitz clone any time soon. It seems there is a seamy and steamy story here waiting to be told.

If you have any further information drop us a line at contact@worldbankpresident.org . Remember to send from your webmail account*. Actually, remember to send from your webmail account from a computer not inside the Bank.

Update 1. Alex Wilks, 23 April, 14.36 EST
Several World Bank staff members have contacted us since Jeff's post, saying they have insights into this rumour and giving further details.

As Jeff also reported, several top Washington lawyers are now involved in this issue, so we are treading carefully. Should any journalist or World Bank board staff member like us to inform you about the allegations we will be happy to speak to you by phone. See our contact details here.

* A beady eyed writer has just informed us (thanks) that "Hotmail is the ONLY one of the 4 major email services (Gmail, aim, yahoo) that by default, include the IP address of the sender in the email sent. While all the other services log the IP address, it takes a bit more work to track down the offender".
