Tags: Barclays, Ben Bernanke, Bob Diamond, kind of thinking SMD would've been more appropriate in this context but that's neither here nor there, Nell Diamond, Twitter
While most offspring are typically not available for comment following the resignations, voluntary or otherwise, of their banker dads (lookin’ at you, Jimmy Cayne, Jr.), earlier today prolific Tweeter Nell Diamond had this to say to the Brits who have been cheering her father’s departure: “George Osborne and Ed Miliband you can go ahead and #HMD.”
Unfortunately the note has since been deleted (and replaced with “No one in the world I admire more than my dad. 16yrs building Barclays. Shame to see the mistakes of few tarnish the hard work of so many”) but the vigorous defense was appreciated nonetheless.
Previously Nell, a 2011 Princeton graduate who works for Deutsche Bank selling interest rate swaps, has had words for people who drink water out of “non-water receptacles” (“people who drink water out of non-water receptacles (eg. used lemon snapple bottles) are ANIMALS”)*, the slag heaps at Coachella (“every girl at coachella looks like pocahontas went to burning man. ugh. you probably can’t even pronounce rodarte”), the amateur hour fucks who think her name is Neil (“number of people who have called me neil today: 4 via email, 1 via phone. number of people to add to my billy madison lipstick kill list: 5.”), and Ben Bernanke (“you know what bernanke? maybe tomorrow I will make lots of “projections” and YOU will miss the dumpling truck. how ya like them apples B?”).
