Is Gordo welcome in the City?

luder_1549964c

Where does one start on  the refusal of the government to give Ian Luder a knighthood ?  The first reaction is yes, well done Gordo – you nailed the greedy swine – but the more considered reaction is that it was Gordo who did it and Gordo is the arch-hypocrite.  Naturally, he denies he had anything to do with the honours list:

The Cabinet Office would not comment on whether Mr Luder will be knighted in the New Year Honours list but stressed that “neither the Prime Minister nor his office has interfered with the list recommended by the independent nominations committee”. The City of London declined to comment.

The lying *@&%$£*.  Yep, just as Nixon denied any knowledge of Watergate.  Lies in bed with the bankers and then deserts the City as he scampers to exonerate himself.  Hope the UK is watching this.

    There can be no whitewash at the Brown House.

    “Regulation with a light touch” meant, I believe, the end of the rule of law in financial services. This is scapegoating big-style and the lowest yet by Mister Brown.

    No peerage for Gordo, then?

    The bit at the bottom of the newspaper article says it all really.
