Don't you just hate it when you try to give a nice Party and all the guests start to drop out?

When they drop out because they've lost their job it's so sad...

Poor, poor Mitt, he just can't catch a break...

Bob Diamond, chief executive of Barclays, has pulled out of hosting a London fundraiser for Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, as the bank faces growing pressure over its role in the price-fixing of lending rates.
Mr. Diamond had been one of 18 co-hosts for a dinner in London later this month in which guests are being asked to pay between $25,000- $75,000 to raise money for Mr. Romney, who will be in town for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.
Never mind, there are plenty where Mr. Diamond came from... although maybe Mittens should grab their cash quick, they seem to be dropping like flies...

Barclays executive Jerry del Missier quits over 'Libor lies'

It is understood that Mr del Missier was the senior manager who misinterpreted the comments of chief executive Bob Diamond after he came off a call in October 2008 with Paul Tucker, Deputy Governor of the Bank of England.

Due to that misinterpretation, Me del Missier told staff that they had been instructed by the Bank to deliberately lie about their Libor submissions.

The FSA said: “As the substance of the telephone conversation was relayed down the chain of command at Barclays, a misunderstanding or miscommunication occurred.
So, nothing to see here, move along, it was all a big misunderstanding.

Bubbanomics ... get your HAHAHAHAHA! on.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
