Why the Tories want less regulation in the City ...?

Today's Sunday Times reveals that city 'short sellers' bankroll David Cameron's Conservative Party.

Same old Tories, eh?

UPDATE: True to form, Boris Johnson today attacked Labour's sensible plans to regulate the greedy city slickers who have caused so much misery with their disgraceful practices.

Boris called on the Government to 'go easy' on those he described as 'the Masters of the Universe'.

He says his actions as Mayor of London show what would happen if the Tories were to win the next General Election.

Quite so.

The Liberal Democrats and SNP, as I understand, also get cash from short sellers of bank stocks. In fact the only major party in the UK not funded in part by the proceeds of this misery is the Labour Party. Funny that.

Why have you not commented on your own conference?

I saw you on the plot with Mr Hoon!

not plotting, but still recovering from an exhausting but excellent week in Manchester.

the late nights and early mornings at Conference seem to take me longer to recover from than they did just a few years ago.
