Evil Short Sellers Part III Gordon Brown’s Millions from Hedge Fund Shorters

Paul Myners is a director of the hedge fund manager GLG, which with $25 billion under management is one of europe’s biggest hedge fund managers. It was until recently 10% owned by Lehmans. Paul Myners gave money to Gordon Brown’s leadership campaign and he also gave money to Gordon Brown’s think-tank the Smith Institute.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
