Did BoJob friend who bet on firms crashing after Brexit know about ‘Operation Kingfisher’?

Crispin Odey: This man supports the Conservatives in the belief that they’ll crash the economy. He bet on 16 companies crashing after the Tories compiled a list of firms likely to do so. And the Tories are still saying they’re the party of financial responsibility!

Days after we discovered that Crispin Odey, the pro-Brexit, pro-Boris Johnson, Tory donor, had wagered £300 million on 16 UK firms’ share prices plummeting after Brexit, we learn that the Tory government has compiled a list of firms that are expected to collapse.

Am I the only one who sees a possibility for corruption in a person who gave a large amount of money to support Mr Johnson’s leadership campaign betting a large amount of money on several firms heading for the wall after Mr Johnson compiled a list of such businesses?

The Tories have admitted compiling a list of businesses they expect to collapse because of a no-deal Brexit. Comments by front-bencher Michael Gove in Belfast indicated that the Tories’ planned ‘Operation Kingfisher’ said that it was intended to support ‘fundamentally viable businesses’.

    Peoples’ livelihoods are at stake and the Tories treat it like an office sweepstake on the Grand National, except the runners are doped and the odds are fixed.

      Absolutely Trevor – yet there are still many working class people who vote for them. Unbelievable.

    Without doubt the nasty Tory Party is dominated by a bunch of thoroughly corrupt criminals – they really are nothing less. They have to be removed from office as soon as possible before they do any more criminal damage to the country.

    It’s not often I am lost for words – especially since June 2016 – but I am really struggling today to find words to adequately express my utter disgust at this latest scam by what is laughingly called a government and the Odious Odey.

    Many carpetbaggers are having their knives sharpened, ready to make a killing – get set for some serious inflation, beyond that which we endured for twelve years following entry into the EU. Consider this, though, did a load of Tories vote Boris in, so that he could bomb, and disappear, forever, up his own illustrious backside?
