The adventures of Tory boy




What’s Tony doing now?


As you have probably guessed, I like to keep up to date with this fellow. A couple of weeks ago Tory, sorry- Tony was supposedly being head-hunted by the richest man in France.
Well, his latest money-making venture is to be a speaker for hedge fund deals at Lansdowne Partners in London.
He is rumoured to be expecting £180k for 90 minutes of his time.
This may upset Gordon and Alistair who are trying to be seen as doing something to claw back money from grasping bankers and the ‘people’ who play global roulette with our hard-earned cash.
Lansdowne Partners made money by betting on the fall of Barclays and Northern Rock shares during the credit crunch, and made £100m from the demise of Northern Rock.

But then the hedge funds bought up larger and larger offices in London putting money back into the economy...so it's not all bad news. For all their gains, they have their losses too.
