Jonah's Fraternal Curse

EDF Energy has been fined €1.5m for hiring someone to hack into a computer belonging to Greenpeace and spy on the swampies. Cheeky.

Not a referendum or election in sight…

Luckily for the UK our cost of borrowing has dropped to a record low. Ten-year gilt yields fell to 2.106% yesterday. If however the UK was in the €urozone and things took a turn for the worse about now the European establishment elite would be forcing Peter Mandelson on us as PM. Or Clegg…
