Another classic ‘Britain not open for business’ attempt from the Barclay Brothers in today’s Telegraph.

Invesco Perpetual fund manager and rentagob Neil Woodford has said the criticism directed by MPs at G4S CEO Nick Buckles over Olympics security was like a “medieval persecution’.

You see Neil, the thing with witch hunts is, you need them when catching witches.

Woodford said Parliament’s grilling of Buckles last month could make companies reconsider business ties with the UK. The government was forced to draft in members of the armed forces to help with Olympic security last month after G4S said it would not be able to provide the 10,400 members of staff to which it had committed. But the appalling appalled Woodford said the home affairs select committee’s actions were “terribly damaging for the economy and this country…If this is the way Parliament wants to treat business, please Parliament, don’t be surprised when businesses decide this isn’t the country for them,” he whined pointlessly.

So tell me Neil Woodford, what was it that first decided you on the route of defending huge Invesco portfolio member G4S?

Move over David Buik, there’s a new kid on the block.
