Ed, Peston and the Iranians

As he calls the nations’ media to Reuters, Canary Wharf for a briefing tomorrow morning about his future business plans, Ed’s attacks on capitalism are gaining traction around the world. He’s becoming a serious player:

The head of Iran’s judiciary announced on Wednesday that the courts will readily “issue death penalties” to the “disruptors” of the country’s foreign currency market. ISNA reports that Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani emphasized that the judiciary will deal with those who have been “identified as economic disruptors” just as it would with “smugglers, bandits and drug traffickers.”

While we are on the subject of banker bashing, some strong words from Peston in an interview with Standard:

“He ums and ahs for a moment and then, with a rare edge of crossness, eschewing his usual idiosyncratic syntax, gives a startlingly clear reply: “Look, I do think it’s completely inappropriate for bankers to be earning these colossal sums. Completely inappropriate.

There are certain people who I regard as being just evil but I don’t regard people who make a lot of money and don’t do anything useful with it as evil.” He stops and thinks for a second. “Just misguided and bonkers.””

Are these comments really appropriate from the neutral Business Editor of our state broadcaster?
