  1. I can’t help notice David, many of the surnames behind these companies seem unsurprising. I mean really, Warburg? I watched an interesting interview on Reuters where the suggestion was following the NOTW revelations that there may have been an ever so slight hardening of the Gonads of various politicians and prime ministers. It makes one wonder what level of office one needs to have reasonably hard Gonads – I would of though Gordon Brown was in a position to put a bit of stick about the City. But apparently not.
