The Chinese have let it be known that they are unimpressed with Danny Alexander being the British nomination for their Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, a post-Bretton Woods multilateral agency that is another sign that the global economy is shifting East. The FT reports that the AIIB advertised for vice-president rank positions requiring candidates have a

 “minimum 20-25 years in a leadership function and position of influence in multilateral development bank(s) or equivalent”.

Danny of course was Chief Secretary to the Treasury for 5 years, a politician for a decade and prior to that a press officer for the Cairngorms National Park Authority.
