Business Diary: A knighthood in the pipeline?
An early bid has been made for some sort of honour from the Coalition Government.
Charlie Mullins, the chap behind Pimlico Plumbers, the posh tradesmen, has this to say about the efforts so far of Messrs Cameron and Osborne: "After years of rescuing botched jobs by cowboy plumbers, I've got a rough idea how the Coalition must feel after 100 days in power, trying to turn around Labour's disastrous mismanagement of the country.
"I may be dealing in millions rather than billions but the frustrations are the same."
What a brown-noser.
