Formerly of Credit Suisse, Olivier Desbarres was the head of Barclays FX strategy in Asia before he was sacked for trespassing into the Wimborne Road construction site on 20 October and hurling racist laden taunts at labourers for starting work 15 minutes earlier than the 9 a.m. timing he had demanded. For good measure he also hurled a zinc sheet at at the hapless Unison Construction staff.
The non-destructive tirade as transcribed by The Times:
“I’m gonna go after you. I’m gonna burn your f**cking house down,” he shouts in the video. “You have no respect. You know what? You’re f**cking animals. Chinese f**cking animals... I have a life. I have a family. You break that, I will find your f**cking family. I can find it very easily — I’m a man with resources.”
The encore from the French frog after sighting the video recording equipment:
“You’re filming me? You think that’s good? Put your phone down so I can f**cking wait for you to come out of it take that phone and f**cking shove it up your ass..”
Since construction site hires are dominated by Indian nationals, mostly from Bangladeshi labour pool and the like, it was curious that "Chinese f**cking animals" were targeted in the verbal volley. The Straits Times (ST) report provided some clues. The Incredible Hulk wannabe had been rattling the iron gate of a 60 year old neighbour because his dog barked. Another neighbor actually made two police reports against the foreign talent for threatening her family over, again, barking dogs. The Paris I visited was very nice to dogs, they even had "poo patrols" to clean up after the four legged animals. ST didn't enlighten on the anti-canine behavior, neither did they make mention of the rabid racism. Maybe they have to have a police report filed before calling in the race card. Viewed in the context of the special kid gloves treatment meted out to the perverse Asean scholar, one can only conclude that the pro-alien policies are still very much alive.
