How’s this for the Curajus State:
A former investment banker is considering a bid to lead the Treasury select committee, promising to end “banker-bashing” and to protect indebted households as the economy recovers.
Mark Garnier, a former associate director at Bear Stearns and then a hedge fund manager, is testing whether he has enough support to run against Andrew Tyrie, who has led the cross-party committee for the past five years. He will formally announce his candidature if enough MPs back him.
You couldn’t make its brazenness up.
I guess that and the sheer effrontery of Garnier’s belief that this might be acceptable is what makes this so repugnant.
So, people who actually win election aren’t allowed to take part in governance then? If they don’t have the right views that is…..
