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 #150: Englishness, X-men and Equality

The New Statesman podcast.

This week, Helen and Stephen try their best not to talk about the EU. Instead they turn to Boris Johnson’s media strategy, MP’s expenses, and Labour and the idea of Englishness. They go down-the-line to the Lobby with George Eaton. Then Henry Zeffman joins to discuss the politics of the new X-men movie. You also ask us: what does the future hold for the Women’s Equality Party? (Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush, George Eaton, Henry Zeffman)
