Know wonder Mervyn Davies, the former Chairman of Standard Chartered Bank, is smiling....he's just been given a Labour Peerage and is joining the Government as a Trade Minister!!!!!!!
HANG ON ONE FUCKING MINUTE.........Banker Peerage Trade Minister......Surely something wrong there.....Weren't the bankers the main part of the reason why there is a recession.....Isn't this like putting a fox in charge of guarding the hen-house?????
Evidently Davis was one of the main people that helped Brown to sort out the package to give to the Banks........and we all fucking know what a great difference that made!!!!!!!......but of coarse evidently Standard Charter weren't "touched" by the credit crunch because they were more involved in "developing markets".....In other words they missed the boat and the trough was already full!!!!!
This is another example of the British Government, and Brown in particular, inviting all their friends to take up ministerial posts.....Soon there will be no point in having elected members at all.....Just have the country run by failed politicians and friends of the PM........Time for a very stiff one.......
