Why is Stephen Green a baron & trade minister? Diamond resigned.

Why was the man who presided over a bank accused of so much wrongdoing, elevated to a peerage by Cameron’s government and made a trade minister? Is this the sort of behaviour Cameron/Osborne consider to be good for trade or do they simply not care?

Stephen Keith Green, Baron Green of Hurstpierpoint (born 7 November 1948) is a British Conservative politician, the current Minister of State for Trade and Investment, and former Group Chairman of HSBC Holdings plc. His reputation was damaged by revelations of his bank’s role in the credit crisis, breaking US sanctions against Iran and laundering money for Columbian and Mexican drug cartels.

The wrongdoing exposed on my website is yet to see the light of day.
