Diamond's daughter kicks back with Twitter abuse
Former Barclays chief executive Bob Diamond may meet MPs today to explain himself but some politicians may be equally keen to have a word with his daughter Nellie after she took to Twitter to post her views on senior members of the two main parties.
Ms Diamond, who works for Deutsche Bank, wrote: "George Osborne and Ed Miliband can go ahead and #hmd," which – in some circles – stands for 'hold my dick'. The tweet was then deleted and replaced by another which read: "No one in the world I admire more than my dad. 16 yrs building Barclays. Shame to see the mistakes of few tarnish the hard work of so many."
She has previously made light of the situation her father has found himself in and made equally clear her affection for him. Ms Diamond recently posted a photograph of them striking matching poses, in which they make what appears to be a diamond shape with their hands and she also posted a photograph of her father with John Terry and the FA Cup.
