Venture Capitalists say the funniest things

It's not often I pick up the Financial Times, read a headline and burst out laughing. But thanks to my venture capital friends I had a good belly-laugh this morning.

Get this. Apparently UK venture capitalists are lobbying the government to throw them a lifeline by bailing them out with £1 Billion!!


No, seriously. Their pitch is that if the Government doesn't give the venture capitalists £1 Billion to play with, then hundreds of technology start ups will go to the wall. They are doing it for us. Not for themselves. For me! The VCs are lobbying the Government for £1 Billion for ME!


Oh, darn it. I've gone and cracked a rib, laughing.
