We’re selling the Uk to Qatar

Posted on

The FT's noted this morning:

Qatar has begun talks with the UK government to invest up to £10bn from the gas-rich Middle Eastern state into key infrastructure projects in Britain.

Three thoughts. First, how come Qatar can do this and we can't do the same? Our contribution to a state funded bank for this work is pathetic.

Second, why don't we use QE for this instead?

Third, is this actually part of the deliberate plan to sell the state?
