Bank reform 'needs to be radical' according to a treasury minister in a news. Great! What do we have to look forward to? Free money? Paying all our bills for us? Are they come round at the weekend to wash our cars? What about me, I don't have a car. Will they polish my shoes instead? But 'radical' isn't necessarily 'good'. Perhaps they're going to knock down all the banks and replace them with banks made of jelly. I don't think that would be good at all, it would be a stupid waste of money, it wouldn't work, even if they did it with free money it would be a waste of time and space. Funnily enough the actual news doesn't mention anything very radical at all, just a few things that aren't that radical. One of them appears to be an otherwise pointless attempt at crowd-pleasing, and you can't get less radical than that nowadays.
There's a very interesting piece in The Guardian on the Conservative Party's recent shameful behaviour in Europe, by Edward McMillan-Scott, who was punished by David Cameron's smiley huggy new Tories for making a stand against fascists.

Maybe they should imprison David Cameron in a bank made of jelly, and give all his money away. Is that radical enough? If Lord Myners is serious he should comment on this post and tell us. Incidentally, the news I talked about first has a picture of him, captioned Lord Myners is described as a "poacher turned gamekeeper". Of course, the obvious question is 'described by who?' Does the news tell us? Surprisingly, yes it does. About halfway down it says Lord Myners is a classic poacher turned gamekeeper, says our business editor... How did this come to be in a news? Are the BBC's business journalists in the habit of interviewing their boss for every story? Or was it like "ha ha, I loved that thing you said in the pub, can I quote you on it in a news?" Perhaps Lord Myners could share his thoughts on this matter with us too. If he's not too busy with his games.
that's all from me for now
see you around
