Where does the money go?
It would not be so bad if these billions were invested in new tech start ups, or, invested in promising research.
But I think it will mostly go to lining the pockets of M&A advisors and fund managers.
The U.K. is one of the hardest places to get startup funding. The US has risk taking fund managers the Europeans generous government subsidies. The U.K. has a financial services sector dedicated to paying itself large bonuses and a tight fisted government.
