today : A wizard deal for Osborne's chums
So, using my magical mystical (even wizard-like) powers, I managed to predict what would happen with 'Project Merlin'
If the Daily Mail says stuff like this about a Tory government, then maybe there's a problem Independent You kind of expect the Indie to be unbiased towards the Tories
But the FT tends to just tell it like it is. "The accord effectively saw Mr Osborne give a green light to banks to pay multibillion-pound bonuses in exchange for a promise to increase lending to small companies by 15 per cent from £66bn to £76bn.
Reuters summed it up for the rest of the world to report
The Guardian well, they would say that wouldn't they?
Wall Street Journal "But the truce—the product of more than two months of negotiations between government and industry leaders amid heated debate over the role of banks in society—doesn't require the banks to do much beyond what they're already doing."
FT again on Cameron's multiculturalism stance.
Is David Cameron not a PR specialist?
