The spivs are running the asylum

The BBC reports that the markets and pound are jittery on the news that there might be a hung Parliament after the General Election.

Leaving aside my thoughts on whether 'market confidence' is more important than democracy (and a weaker pound helps UK manufacturing), surely the BBC report is just plain wrong. For the last two weeks we have had polls which showed that a hung Parliament is likely, but the markets didn't wobble significantly.

But as soon as a poll showed that Brown could still be PM after the election....

Panic on the streets of London!
