A bio of O’Neill is interesting: he is both an Osborne man, Goldman Sachs and pro-BRICS- in fact, he coined the phrase. He is the classic representative of the pro-China, pro-EU faction which I assumed would win the referendum, but lost.

Treasury minister Jim O’Neill is said to be considering his future in the Government in light of Theresa May’s decision to review the new nuclear plant at Hinkley Point.
According to the Financial Times, Lord O’Neill believes the pause reflected a shift in the new administration’s attitude towards China, which is set to finance £6bn of the Hinkley Point deal.
