Congress nutters risk global finance: UK minister | Reuters
Saw it on TV yesterday and I swear I could hear David Cameron head explode. While Vince Cable is 100% correct and Cameron knows it, the timing of the comment is not the best to say the least...Right-wing "nutters" in the United States Congress holding up a deal to prevent a catastrophic debt default are a greater risk to the global financial system than problems in the euro zone, a British minister said Sunday.
On top of that he downplayed the UK economy.... I suspect he will be out of a job soonish unless Nick Clegg protects him... after all Cable was the minister who said "he was at war with Murdoch" over the BSkyB purchase by Newscorp and after the Newscorp scandal his "star" has been rising considerably.
