Time to Hug a Banker? Definitely Not

I really not happy with Robert Peston today, first it's the rather ambiguous comment that the Tories were first to warn of excess in the city. There may be a grain of truth in this, but I wonder exactly where and when they did this and exactly how much of a fuss they made about it.

Second is this blog post elaborating on his earlier Today programme appearance, where he briefly talked about he talked about Britain's comparative advantage in banking. Problem is that it's really hard to see how you can have an advantage in an industry that creates something that exists on no more than a whim. I suppose I could look to religon for answers.
