      Almost everything I would have thought.

    ‘Bankrolled by the banks’ He’s hardly a born rhetorician, is he?

    Martin Day says:

    Ed Miliband has just finished off David Cameron’s stint as Prime Minister.

    Never have I seen such a hoon as Cameron

      You cannot be serious. Miliband and his cronies have much to hide, hence why they want a long drawn out inquiry.

        Impartial Observer says:

        Exactly. An inquiry is just a way of kicking a problem into the long grass.
        Mind you the Tories were always calling for fewer and ‘lighter touch’ regulations.
        They’re all the same.

          AC1 says:

          There was a VAST amount of regulation (mainly designed to make it harder for competitors to emerge).

          Gordo’s Government wanted as much Debt (to tax) as possible, he made it happen. That’s basically post classical Neo-Endogenous growth theory (falsified).

        pissed off voter says:

        hate to agree with Milliband but even broken clocks are right sometimes; parliamentary inquiry followed by public judicial inquiry were my thoughts too.

        Not so much as trying to kick this into the long grass .
        More the jungle in the land that time forgot .

      I had that knob Martin Day in my cab the other day. He is a cnut.

      Joss Taskin says:

      Haven’t you ever seen Gordon Brown, Ed Balls, Ed Miliband, Neil Kinnockio, Calamity Clegg and Lard Pressclott then ?

      Get Real...Labour is up to their necks in this says:

      Totally out of touch…like Miliband…..Labour is shitting themselves…Diamond has them by the shorts and they know it…..this goes to the very heart of the previous Labour Government.

      • 34
        Chingrinner Memorial Committee says:

        miliband today in the house just a pathetic figure squirming to avoid a parliamentary enquiry. Chingriner and Ed Balls will doubtless be looking
        forward to appearing.

        I hope Bob Diamond doesn’t hold back in what he reveals this afternoon…
        just like ‘hacking’ you can be sure the practices were widespread.

      In your dreams Mart, Milliband and co are in it up to their necks i cant wait for it to hit the fan (oo Mrs ! )

    Ed MealyBland says:

    I think Gordon Brown should be dragged into this House and publicly flogged for causing me all this trouble!

  7. 14
    Lord Ashcroft says:

    Leave me out of this.

    As a precaution I will apply for a super injunction later this afternoon.

    Pound weakening.

    More QE on the way.

  9. 18
    Lord Scalded Bollock says:

    Personally I favour an inquiry let by G*ido Fa*kes and Har*y Co*e.

    This dynamic duo will sort out the banks

    For fucks sake says:

    Ask Gordon

    • 39
      Gillian Beastley says:

      Yes- please do!

      Whilst the sh*t once again hits the fan in relation to banking, it only means the inevitable scandal with regard to local government will be postponed for a while longer.

      That suits me, of course. By the time that particularly huge turd lands I will be living somehwere ‘offshore’ without any kind of extradition agreement with the UK.

      Nice!

  11. 21
    David Wisteria says:

    Well I thought that went pretty well.

    I sent Milliband packing about judicial inquiries.

    Come Thursday he will have to support me. A nice parliamentary inquiry with some fatuous questioning , a few slaps on wrists, and everything will be fine.

    Owain Glyndwr says:

    Just don’t get it, call me dave had the chance to have balls and the millitwat squealing like stuck pigs, but no he just stood and posed, for phuck sake he really is a limp dick

    Breaking news says:

    Disgraceful…..

    Former minister Denis MacShane will face no further action from police over allegations that he abused Commons expenses, it has been revealed.

  14. 35
    Denis MacShameless says:

    Now I shall be even more obnoxious than ever before. Didn’t think that was possinle, did you ?

    Anon Person says:

    When was the last time Bob D was seen alive ??

    tory boys never grow up says:

    Diamond’s position that the whole thing never went above the level of Desk Supervisoris just not consistent with the FSA’a Final Notice – Section E makes t clear that a senior manager flagged the potential conflict of interest to Compliance in September 2007 – unfortunately Compliance concluded that information barriers were not neessary even tough there was a potential conflict of interest between the Submiters and the Derivative Traders. Isn’t there an MP who can nail him on this?

    • 43
      tory boys never grow up says:

      Some one please ask why Diamond did ask why he didn’t ask Compliance were looking into in 2007 given his stated concern about staff behaving properly

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”

It’s money innit.
