Does William Hague’s wife work for Robert Mugabe’s ‘favourite’ bank? Bob Diamond’s Barclays

I may have my facts all mixed up, so apologies in advance if I have. However, it is my understanding that Foreign Secretary William Hague’s wife earns a goodly amount of money working for Bob Diamond’s Barclays Bank. It is also my understanding that Barclays Bank has made an awful lot of money helping Zimbabwe’s kleptocratic, deluded, mass-murdering dictator Robert Mugabe and several of his close associates with their financial affairs. That might even have involved shifting their stolen billions to more favourable climes. When confronted with allegations that it has been helping Mugabe and his cronies, Barclays apparently said, “Barclays has been in Zimbabwe since 1912 and is deeply committed to supporting its 150,000 customers in the country in what is clearly a difficult operating environment. Our 1,000 Zimbabwean employees are providing an excellent service and, as a major employer, we are fully committed to their welfare.”

I don’t know about you, but this all smells a bit nasty to me.
