Business quote of the day: "What went wrong?"

“Every day I look in the mirror and ask: what did I do wrong?” 

Peter Cummings , the former chief executive of HBOS corporate, accused the Financial Services Authority of “sinister” and “outrageous” behaviour by singling him out for punishment. Cummings, interviewed at home in Scotland due to a serious illness, was fined £500,000 by the FSA in September and banned for life for his role in the HBOS collapse.

The NS Podcast #204: Carswell and Collapse

The New Statesman podcast.

Helen and Stephen are joined by Jonn Elledge to lament our exit from the EU, discuss what they feel about the EEA, and decide who they loathe more: Douglas Carswell or Daniel Hannan. Jason Cowley and George Eaton then introduce our special-issue on Labour's collapse. And you ask us: what do we think of the Labour Leave MPs?
