A diamond geezer spills the beans.
I have no idea what Bob Diamond is going to come out with when he appears before the Treasury Select Committee today but the pundits are talking about this being the possible beginning of the end for London as a major financial market. Back in the late eighties, when financial services was seen as the golden future for this country, I was apt to point out that a nations wealth was it's agriculture, industry, fishing, and such like. We turned our backs on such real endeavours at our peril. What did a thick ex-bargeman like me know? Chickens coming home to roost babe. Chickens coming home to roost.
