Dave Confirms Osborne Will Not Be Moved

In an interview with Kay Burley the PM has just confirmed that Osborne is not going to be reshuffled. Apparently he’s “not going anywhere”. Shocker…

As for Hunt, it was more measured. His lack of clear answer would point to a move for Hunt. Dave was very evasive and pointedly refused to back the Culture Secretary. His whole department could be scrapped…

Turns out George isn’t heading for a fall, yet…

ECB President Draghi Goes Comical Ali

Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank, told a press conference following the meeting of the ECB Governing Council in Frankfurt this afternoon that “the euro is irreversible”. Asked by the media what he meant by that he exclaimed to much laughter “It stays, it stays, it stays. It’s pointless to bet against the euro, it’s pointless to go short on the euro.” From the beginning of the press conference to the end the € fell 200 pips against the $, so he was proved factually incorrect before he even finished speaking.

At the end of the press conference Spanish yields were back over 7%, capital flowed into German bunds as a safe haven, trading in Italian bank stocks was halted, the euro had pointedly rewarded those who were short and bet against it, costing the ECB a lot of credibility. Spain has now been told it will, like Greece, have to formally ask for a bailout on austere German terms. The can has been kicked down the road again, the end of the road however is in sight…

Mirror Slump Eases As Sly Slinks Off

Sly Bailey might have only been shown the door by Trinity Mirror two weeks ago but there is already reason to celebrate as the newspaper group reported a rise in profits this morning. The Mirror‘s parent company made a pre-tax profit of £35 million in the last six months, up 21% year-on-year. The improvement has been attributed to a wave of cost-cutting measures implemented by Trinity Mirror bosses over the last few months.

No longer having to pay Sly’s huge pay packet might also have something to do with it…
