Ummm .. excuse me, but ..

.. who exactly was footing the bill for this extravagant feast at the G20 Summit?

I understand that it's important to use the good china when entertaining dignitaries, but when the reason for the dinner is the financiapocalypse, it might be a good idea to scale back a little. Something tells me that dishes like fruitwood-smoked quail with quince gastrique, quinoa risotto, thyme-roasted rack of lamb don't come cheap. As my dad would say, "the optics are bad" on that one.

They are indeed. Obviously the diners are not feeling the pain!
