Tom Watson's Zopa blog

Posted on 24 Aug 2009 by Giles Andrews

I met Tom Watson when he was a Cabinet Minister, as part of our lobbying efforts on the tax treatment of lenders’ losses and Zopa’s eligibility as an asset class for ISAs. He was an enthusiastic supporter and it’s great to see he still is in his blog on Friday. Tom is widely regarded as the most ‘digital’ of all MPs so his views are highly credible.

Alistair Darling has said some encouraging things recently about wanting to see more competition for banks, not least on the Today programme (skip to 1hr 32 mins) which prompted our invitation to the programme on Saturday (1hr 46 mins), so the campaign goes on!
