Top bankers want a Cameron victory

Remember those bankers who took us into the worst worldwide recession in decades by putting their own desire to make pots of cash over the need for financial stability? Well, they’re keen on David Cameron’s Conservatives winning the election. Wonder why?

    In my opinion though, all MPs, including from the Liberals are hangstrung attacking “greedy” bankers because of the expenses scandal. Most people regard all MPs from all parties are sinners here. That includes the Lib Dems and people view one lot of people worse than Bankers – MPs. This video of Lib Dem Bob Russell is becoming quite a cult now and it’s about his expenses which many view as a worse betrayal than greedy bankers (because let’s face it. to be a banker you really have to be greedy in the first place, but not so with MPs). Enjoy the video

  • Latest drivel from Cameron. He says savings can be made by not filling posts that fall vacant in the public sector. What always happens when public sector bodies take that route is they end up hiring agency and contract staff at much greater cost. Is there anything Cameron won’t say to get votes?

    So wealthy bankers and businessmen are saying they support the Tories. Is there a phrase to describe this? Something means approximately the opposite of ‘turkeys voting for Christmas’

  • Painfully Liberal – its best to paraphrase Mandy Rice Davies: “They would do that, wouldn’t they?”

    Or there’s always the old line about “Dog bites man” not being news.
