Under the title 'Bob Diamond's resignation is the latest vivid sign that the old order is crumbling. Change is in the air. Labour understands this, Tories don't' Steve Richards suggests the Coalition represents the past.
This scandal into the fixing of Libor by 19 banks over the period 2004 - 2009 is yet another deeply damaging episode that along with the MPs expenses scandal, the phone hacking scandal and the banking crash of 2007 - 2008 all happened under the last Labour government.
Mr Richards, the Coalition is still clearing up the mess left by the old order.
