So private equity has made a successful takeover bid for the whole of London.

Private equity buys London

Well, with the price of many public companies relatively high and debt-finance still too tight to mention, we shouldn't be surprised that one of the star operational managers of the buyout sector has opted to run our capital as Boris Johnson's de facto chief executive. It's the best mega deal around - and the only mega deal.

  • Yes, old news.

    And conspiracy theories aside it’s still my 2nd worst nightmare actually playing out in reality.

    My worst nightmare is of Bill Gates buying the UK, making himself King, installing Steve Ballmer as PM and Alan Sugar as home secretary.

    Then forcing us to adhere to a constitution full of Microsoft style management initiatives…

    *shiver*

    That would be a living hell…. the UK would receive security threats on a daily basis, towns would be wiped out by viruses and the transportation of the whole country would simply crash.
