Stephanie Flanders is off. She leaves the BBC in November to work for….J.P Morgan Asset Management…..toxic bankers.
Ed Miliband is already reaching for his Socialist’s Play Kit, digging out the airbrush so that apostate Flanders can be airbrushed from his history and from those photos of past indiscretions as any good Socialist would do…Ed Balls will no doubt be lugging his photo album over to Ed’s £1.5 million mansion for the same treatment.
What was rather worrying was that Flanders, working for the BBC with all the time in the world and huge resources behind her said this:
She said her new job, as chief market strategist for the UK and Europe, would afford her more time for research and developing a deeper understanding of the markets.
Hmmm….wasn’t that her job anyway at the BBC?
But then again Gordon Brown, economic genius and guru admitted he hadn’t understood just how complicated the world is….which is why……we are where we are.
