Bloom with a view

I see that UKIP MEP and former City fund manager, Godfrey Bloom, has caused a bit of a fuss by heckling Financial Services Authority chairman, Lord Turner, at Mansion House.
This is not the first time that Bloom has managed to attract controversy. Five years ago he mused : "No self-respecting small businessman with a brain in the right place would ever employ a lady of child-bearing age" - a controversial view expressed with impeccable timing.
The former Mercury Asset Management fund manager made the comments on his first day in the Strasbourg parliament - where he'd just been given a seat on the, er, European Parliament's women's rights committee.
