Meanwhile… over to Vince Cable for an update on SPIVS!…..
Cable attacks City ‘spivs and gamblers’
Independent: Business Secretary Vince Cable launched a searing attack today on the City “spivs and gamblers” who crippled the British economy.
In a rousing speech to round off the first Liberal Democrat conference since they entered coalition, Mr Cable condemned the “outrageous” scale of bank bonuses after the credit crunch.
But he also attempted to calm business concerns over his damning critique of capitalist excess and threats to legislate against big payouts, insisting he was not seeking “retribution”.
Nice to see a bit of completely meaningless bollocks at the Lib-Dem conference… just like old times.
With regret… I have had to pull out of The Commonwealth Games in India – a bar I was going to spend my time at for the duration of the games has just collapsed…..
