Cameron spectacularly loses FTSE support

David Cameron is attempting to make a lot of political capital out of the fact that CEOs of 36 FTSE 100 companies, including Burberry, BAE Systems and EasyJet, have signed a letter backing the campaign to stay in the EU.

But the really telling fact is that 64 of the UK’s largest publicly listed businesses – nearly two-thirds of them, including RBS and Barclays – did NOT sign.

And it’s particularly telling because, before he secured his EU reform “deal”, Downing Street had confidently suggested that 80 of them would sign the letter.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
