David Cameron Is Not Short On City Friends

by | 2nd, October 2008

DAVID Cameron says “You can bank on me”, at least this is the message the Independent relates to its readers from the Tory Party conference.

And it’s a good job that the Bank of Cameron is open, but not all that good, maybe, if Lady Louise Patten, wife of Tory education minister John, is running things.

Until recently she was a non-executive director of Bradford & Bingley, aka Bring & Buy, aka Boom & Bust etc.

And there is Christopher Gent, director of Lehman Brothers, who has given tens of thousands of pounds to the Tories.

As Cameron said at the conference:

What you won’t hear from me this week is the sort of easy cheap lines beating up on the market system, bashing financiers.”

Indeed not…
