Gordon 2.0

Fraser Nelson in the Speccie has a 2,400 word piece on the new team around Gordon, some of whom have private-sector experience of successfully running more than a whelk stall, which is not something that can be said for the Alexanders, Milibands and Balls’.

Stephen Carter from Brunswick and Jeremy Heywood from Morgan Stanley are the new dynamic duo in downing Street according to Fraser. Jennifer Moses, an ex-Goldman Sachs managing director has come in to the big tent via the LibDem friendly think-tank CentreForum.

The Jonah effect was immediately felt. Ms Moses’ husband’s hedge fund (Peleton) won an industry award in January, she announced she was going to work for Gordon in February. Her husband loses a billion or so that month and his hedge fund is now being wound up. Hope he wasn’t listening to pillow talk giving an inside track on Gordon’s musings on mortgage backed securities…

UPDATE : As pointed out in the comments, according to yesterday’s Daily Mail

Jennifer Moses had been due begin work in her new Downing Street office in the next few days to “spice up” policies ahead of the next election. But she has pulled out over what No. 10 was today describing as a “domestic situation”.
