Investment banks such as Goldman Sachs are giving money to the Remain campaign in the EU referendum

It was an astonishing sight: George Osborne, Vince Cable and Ed Balls, sharing the same platform, all fighting for Remain, the old ideological divisions seemingly long forgotten.
In Germany, they would call this Left-Right alliance a “Grand Coalition”: others might see it as an undemocratic stitch-up whereby winners and losers gang up and seek to deprive the electorate of any real choice.
Cable and Balls were spectacularly ousted by the Tories and their relatively pro-enterprise election manifesto, of course; the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties and candidates they vanquished supported a 50p tax rate, a mansion tax and a bevy of other Left-wing policies that would have badly damaged the City and those who work for it.
