Again, too narrow a view. If you walk into Canary Wharf for example, you will see security guards, cleaners, caterers, retail outlets etc all proving jobs for honest hardworking people.

You mean like these services Dave?

Oh perhaps that doesn't matter as it affects clever people from London in the main



Had a quick look at those links Veronica and I didn't see any mention of " clever people " leaving London.

Seemed to me it was all about bankers.

Perhaps you have forgotten about the worlds latest financial crash of 10 years ago already ?




I don’t believe all the employees of the banks were responsible for the crash Malc. Wasn't it deregulation that started the rot?



" Deregulation " no doubt contributed but is no excuse for anything.

(That was used at the time as a "political" excuse - )

If our speed limits in built-up areas were deregulated it wouldn't be a good idea to speed through housing estates at 100 mph. " Clever " people wouldn't do it.

I seem to recall the crisis started with sub-prime mortgages in the USA - that was an idea dreamt up by bankers, who were certainly NOT clever.

We should never confuse ' highly paid ' with 'clever '

True Malc but I was referring to employees not their paymasters.

We obviously have very different opinions about how clever bankers are Veronica - although I think of them simply as money lenders.

They just lend other peoples money to people who have the skills to do something useful with it - ( and charge them a lot for doing so ).

Perhaps I too have a narrow view based on my knowledge of the recruitment of high achieving graduates in the banking sector Malc. Clever is not always wise - my OH worked in the industry and he would agree. I was just poking fun at one of Dave’s known prejudices.
