DELETED: this limerick and prose on the Scotch mist of Slovenian regulatory systems had to go...


Ouroboros of boss who paid multure:
Go to jail for Slovenian culture!
Advantage expected
If you want it erected -
Bad bank swoops, as if avenging vulture.

I think these sentences are a shame, and go against everything that is normal in Slovenia.

These construction firm directors did not wake up one day and decide to bribe some government drone to build an airport control tower.  And this Žibert character can't even afford a decent hat:

By way of economic analogy with Slovenia, let's look at Scottish feudal domains of the Middle Ages.

"Thirlage was the law in regard of the milling of grain for personal or other uses. Vassals in a feudal barony were thirled to their local mill owned by the feudal superior. People so thirled were called suckeners and were obliged to pay for use of the mill and help maintain it."

In this agro-economy payment could either take the form of corvée (free labour) or multure (payment in goods, a share of your grain for the miller). This was known as a bannock - also the name for a kind of unleavened Scottish pitta bread resembling rock.

On with the analogy.  A Big Baron [Government] owned the farmland [Slovenia] and its grain mill [airport].  The suckeners [Kontrola zračnega prometa Slovenije d.o.o. -] were bound by tenure to the feudal lord [employed by the government] of the territory and forced [needed to earn pay to survive] to toil in the field [field of transport sector construction tender assessment] somewhat for the communal benefit but mostly for the benefit of the establishment.

The lowly producer [Dušan Črnigoj] probably saw the miller himself as a jumped-up, parasitical sort of character.  And both had to play according to the rules of a powerful monopoly with control over a finite contractual world of food supply [major public infrastructure projects] as they would have perceived it.

The idea of thirlage originated so that these poor suckeners had to pay somehow for the construction of this vitally important, capital-intensive centralised food [tourist] processing facility - the flour mill [control tower].
Outsucken multures, i.e. use of mills to which you were not thirled or bound by tenure or, worse yet, just going off and grinding away by yourself in secrecy were big no-nos.  

Down would come the law, in the form of a fine or some other punishment, with the miller legally entitled to smash his rival's doubt that gave the village [readers of Slovenske Novice] a cheap thirl.

Of course in this case, the miller's grassum [business licence] made him, too, a prisoner of the system - and you can imagine the frustration of an always hungry fat miller [Tomaž Žibert] having to watch sack after sack of food heading out of the door [being paid less than euromillions] to oversee the proper product of the euromillions of others.  

Observing the squandering of grain [overblown tenders] who would not be tempted to have a quick feel around the crevices of his machine and pop a few extra bannocks into his mill-bitch?

Overcontrolling primitive society fun slavery facts:

Ireland's bad bank was also born amid the prosecution of property tycoons but it turned out it was just being run for the gain of other property tycoons.

Tomaž Žibert successfully claimed 9500 euros for unfair dismissal in 2009.

Multure is pronounced "mooter" - accordingly the rhymes above must be: cooter, vooter.

Thirlage was only abolished in Scotland in 2004.
