I’m Shocked…

Boris Johnson, who is leading the fight against a European crackdown on City financiers, faced accusations of being “bought off” today, when it emerged that more than half the money donated to his mayoral campaign came from the financial sector including hedge funds and private equity.

Johnson has criticised the EU’s so-called “hedge fund directive,” draft rules published in the spring which would limit debt levels for alternative investment managers, such as hedge funds, and force them to be more transparent.

    He reminds me of the corrupt politicians here in the US who are bought off by the banksters. I guess we don’t have a monopoly on that kind of filth.

    The City installing their guy was probably one of the main themes of the election, we live in the best democracy money can buy!

    When will people start to get off the backs of, and stop mocking, these Old Etonians and ex-Bullingdon Club members. These upper class white boys are a minority group, too, yer know!

    Class envy has ruined this once great country of ours. And I’ll have no part of it.

    Yes truly I must fight this terrible prejudice of mine and learn to love these selfless prophets sent to save us! And soon Britannia shall again rule the waves and we shall know our proper place!
