    Imagine if Reynard had been a Tory, the extremist left wing media like the BBC and its print arm the guardian, the independent(we arent are you?), the observer and its 137 readers would have been up in arms and outraged. Of course this left wing axis has been silent, the story does not really interest them, nothing to see here. The self proclaimed defenders of womens rights and equality shown up for who and what they really are. The BBC that jumped at the chance to smear a Tory without even bothering to get the witness to identify the person first had the story months ago and chose to ignore it, funny that.

    Sterling fell during trading in Asia as financial markets reacted to the loss of Britain’s top AAA credit rating.

    The pound fell to a 31-month low against the dollar and a 16-month low against the euro.

    Further falls are expected when markets open in Europe amid concerns that the credit downgrade points to further problems for UK economic recovery.

    Ratings agency Moody’s made the downgrade on Friday evening, the first cut since the 1970s.

    The value of sterling has been edging down for several weeks amid speculation that the AAA rating was under threat.

    In trade in Asia on Monday, it fell to $1.5073, while against the euro it was 1.145 euros. A euro is now worth 87.3p.

    There is no reason for the Conservative led coalition to change course on the economy.We have no Plan B, and frankly,we don’t need one.

      Well Vincent for your information Moodys posted last December that there was a one in three chance that sterling would be downgraded within the next three years.

      Well the grading survived two months !

      Your Government is now redoubling its efforts according to that Mr Osborne!

      It seems to me you are all well behind the curve .

      I would offer to meet with you to discuss the matter in greater depth but frankly from everything I have heard no one has even bothered to get a firm grasp of what Moodys is saying .

      It is commendable that you have kept and reread your A Level textbooks but frankly this is not nearly enough!

    George Osborne’s attitude to the charge of ignoring the standard he set for himself makes stronger a belief that trust, integrity and accountability is lacking in this government.
    Those three qualities are also lacking across much of the infrastructure that holds the UK together, banks, the NHS and the food industry.
    Most of the powerful individuals involved are probably Tory supporting, Tory voters or Tory donors. There does seem to be a culture within Tory ideology that puts self-interest and greed first and foremost and where integrity, trust and accountability are put to one side to further those aims. That is alongside the fact that there are good and trustworthy people who support the Tory party and who vote Tory.
