The funds and their advisers learned nothing from 2008 and went to the Casino again – this time with £trillions. Kwarteng should have seen the express train coming down the track towards him. Did he?

Remember those words which everyone (outside the financial markets) learned for the first time in 2008 – Swaps, Credit Default Swaps, Derivatives, Leveraging, Hedging, Repos, Collateralised Debt Obligations, Margin Calls? Most of us have probably forgotten what they were. Probably Kwasi Kwarteng had, too. Because they took him out.
