After market FTSE 100 futures fell another 250 pts after the vote.

That would make a total fall over 10% for the futures today.

If this carries on wait for the Pharmas to hit several year lows and pile in before all the clever money does. IMHO of course

Thanks. So, then, a combination of pique and (literally) unbelievable stupidity? Do they have a secret Earth-like planet they're going to escape to?

Although I am overall long equities I have a grudging admiration for our American friends. To me it is democracy in action. Perhaps the mistake was Paulson shouting panic in a crowded room with no exit?

Can't be bothered to scan above to see if someone mentioned it already but the

is good on this today.

I am amazed how high the FTSE is this morning, sure I read last week it would lose a quarter of its value if the bail out failed.

Tom Logan, an engineer from Leeds, said: "I suppose I always knew America would eventually break the planet, like some ghastly, hyperactive toddler that gets hold of a mobile phone and then smashes it repeatedly against the edge of a table, but I never really thought it would affect me.

"But now, thanks to a combination of psychotic greed, political expediency and the sort of jaw dropping stupidity that makes you wonder if they actually know how to breathe in and out, I can look forward to a future of dysentry, burnt-out vans and an exciting range of low-fat meals, all of which - in some way or another - involve rodents."
