Can’t help feeling that the Torygraph’s leader writer needs head-hunting by a political party:
(They’d probably prefer a right-of-centre one, but any party that needs some good-quality rabble-rousing speeches should do.)
Alas, this blogger has been too busy writing and painting to read up much on the Highly Suspect British Company (formerly the Midland Bank). This could constitute as slacking for someone who once wrote a dissertation on reforming banking law (and noted that HSBC didn’t think much of the idea of reforms, having glided through the banking crisis without needing to be nationalised). Still, the Guardian explains the problems here – with a certain lack of observation as to whether they’re particularly recent. And it does seem to have raised something with a (former) leading Torygraph columnist.
