Simply staggering to read the front page of the Daily Express yesterday (over someone's shoulder in Gare du Nord, Paris) saying that it was time to stop spivs in the City speculating. As they put it, it is this action, based solely on stupidity and greed that's bringing the economy to the brink of collapse.
For once I agree with the Express.
I also believe we can stop it.
But the solution is more radical than the Express might think.
But have no doubt: unless we do stop this greed driven speculation by those who think themselves beyond accountability our situation will just get worse.
The power of the City and of finance has to be stopped, forever.
