Previous post: Mitt Romney London fundraiser was to be hosted by Barclay CEO who was fined $453 million for manipulating interest rates

Of course, the host resigned a short time later.

Now Buzzfeed is reporting that Barclay executives are being called on by members of Parliament, by way of a resolution, to stop fundraising for Willard M. Romney and “concentrate entirely on repairing confidence and trust in the banking system instead.”

This excerpt was interesting:

Barclays "most senior bankers based in the US have donated the maximum allowable individual donation per election to the Romney campaign..."

Team Willard is even having issues overseas. He's outsourcing scandals now. Maybe he can retroactively withdraw invitations to the Big Dinner.

Follow the Buzzfeed link to read the entire screen grab. It's loverly, mates.

    So we are told we need a photo ID to vote. But foreign companies, foreign nationals and convicted felons who are not even allowed to vote are allowed to buy the government.
    There is something rotten in that equation.
