Mario Draghi, austerity lover

Do you know who this man is? 

If you live in Europe you should have. He is Mario Draghi, the unelected Italian head of the European Central Bank and one of the key players of the neoliberal "austerity lovers" movement, that have handed out over €1 trillion in ultra-low interst loans since November 2011 in order to save European private banks from the consequences of their own reckless gambling, whilst insisting that the ordinary working people of Europe pay for these handouts through harsh socially and economically destructive "austerity measures".
