Angry message from Javid's childhood street: ‘Wake up, we've moved on'

And as for turning his back on a life of crime to become a member of a Tory cabinet...
That is actually credible. He undoubtedly discovered that the Conservative Party afforded him a greater opportunity than did a life of crime to exercise his nasty sociopathic tendencies.

At least Mr Javid is seen as a pair of safe hands.
Credit derivatives: Squeeze is over for EM CDOs
Sudip Roy, July 27, 2006

The recent correction in the bond markets could prove to be a boon for emerging market CDOs, according to bankers. A few synthetic deals are in the pipeline, including one being arranged by Goldman Sachs that would be the first single-tranche local-currency CDO in the emerging markets.

Sajid Javid, global head of emerging markets structuring at Deutsche Bank, agrees that the [recent] correction acted as a positive for emerging market CDO products. “It was not big enough to put off current investors but sufficient enough to attract new ones.” Javid reckons that the credit environment is now conducive to more emerging market CDO structures. “You want an environment where the underlying fundamentals are strong but where there is sufficient value vis-à vis other asset classes.”

'I think that is incredibly rude. I wonder if people like Hugh Grant think they are part of the elite and they look down on working class people no matter what station they reach in life.'

The awkward encounter came at the London premiere of Martin Scorsese's new film, The Irishman.

That’s not even a good try. How is Hugh Grant (but not press barons) part of the elite?

I suppose the film industry likes to grab the chancellor’s ear. I doubt the premiere invite was a personally freebie from Marty.

I wonder how long it took Javid to convince himself Grant had something against him because of his alleged social class.

Surely as the long evenings draw in, even the Saj must look out upon the blackness and think "Maybe I'm just a fucking git".

He'd need self-awareness to do that.
