Barclays and Mugabe

The Telegraph reports that:

The Liberal Democrats said yesterday that the alleged support was against the spirit of European Union sanctions, which specifically target prominent members of the Zimbabwe government.

The controversy has echoes of the 1980s when Barclays was boycotted by anti-apartheid activists and students for its links with South Africa.

I remember it well. It's probably hard being in banking and having to work out what is or isn't ethical in the pursuit of profit.
