U S Banksters Fail To Show Up For Brown's Meeting

Gordon Brown unable to attract leading bankers to meeting in New York

Gordon Brown appeared to have failed in his attempt to gauge Wall Street's feelings on the thorny issue of bonuses and capital levels ahead of the G20 after he was unable to attract any heavyweight bankers to a specially convened meeting in New York.

Although invitations to a number of Wall Street's biggest banks are known to have been sent, only one senior US banker, 52-year Citigroup veteran Bill Rhodes – who stepped down as chairman of Citigroup North America in July but remains on its board – attended yesterday's economic roundtable. That compares poorly to the two previous such meetings the Prime Minister has hosted in the city during the credit crisis, when big names including star hedge fund manager George Soros and JP Morgan Chase chairman Jamie Dimon showed up.

Pride has brought humiliation. The Saviour of the World's partners in the decade of imprudence are desserting him in droves. I very much doubt he will be allowed to see out his term.

You're reading too much into this.

Maybe the The Simpsons clashed with the Gordon Brown meeting.
