Commons leader Jack Straw has slammed shamed Farepak owner Sir Clive Thompson after he blamed the fall of the Christmas hamper firm on HBOS.
Sir Clive was quoted to have said that HBOS were hanging the firm out to dry. Straw deemed this comment shameless as Farepak were well aware of their financial difficulties even though they continued to advertise their product.
Jim Devine, MP, says Sir Clive is the unacceptable face of capitalism. Sir Clive is currently laying low in Buenos Aires.
