While others suffer, this friend of Boris Johnson has made a fortune from the coronavirus

Crispin Odey: This supporter of Boris Johnson bet that coronavirus would crash the stock markets – he is profiting from your misery.

Hedge fund tycoon Crispin Odey has made £115 million from betting on a stock market crash due to the coronavirus.

He told the Mail on Sunday he predicted a crash, and has spent the last three weeks cashing in on it.

What a charmer.

He’s the Brexit supporter who reportedly wagered £300 million on a post-Brexit crash.

Some have said that he lost out because the markets hardly blinked when the UK Brexited at the end of January.

But the real hit is yet to come and we won’t know whether he was right until the transition period closes at the end of 2020.

How do you feel about the fact that this tycoon is picking up a pretty penny because of others’ misfortune?

    I get a sense Mr Odey has some insider knowledge of Disaster capitalism….given he’s already made a bundle from Britain leaving the eu – couldn’t something be done into shaming him into not profiteering from a Pandemic ? #Justathought

      I don’t think he’s made anything from Brexit – yet. My impression is he’s just an opportunist who understands how the system works and has the cash to make it work for him. It’s shady morality which is why I criticise it.
