Goodwin (again)

The attention on Goodwin is obvious naked (and rather unattractive) politics and spin by the Government, to deflect attention from the wider financial crisis, and I can't believe how the mid-market Tory leaning papers, such as the Express and Mail, have fallen for it. Frankly, I don't really care about this one, rather greedy man - in fact, I have a sneaking admiration for his sticking to his guns in the face of massive public opprobrium. (Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his reputation for his pension...) The sums involved are tiny, absolutely tiny, compared to the vast, unquantified liabilities faced by the state under its insurance scheme for toxic loans. Brown and Darling should be in the firing line, not Goodwin.
