Psico killers

«The Tories are under fire after it emerged they have been bankrolled by City 'wolves' who have made a killing from the financial crash.
The party has received hundreds of thousands of pounds from hedge fund managers who raked in vast sums by short-selling shares in British banks.
Among the businessmen who donated more than £50,000 to talk privately with him are Paul Ruddock of Lansdowne Partners and Michael Hintze of CQS.
Both their firms made fortunes from betting that the price of Bradford & Bingley and HBOS shares would fall.
Mr Hintze has donated more than £650,000 to the Tories since Mr Cameron became leader and Mr Ruddock has donated £259,500.
Another fund which has admitted short-selling in Bradford & Bingley, GLG Partners, is managed by Pierre Lagrange. His wife Catherine has given £50,000 to the Tories.
The Tories hit back by claiming that one of Gordon Brown's closest political allies, Paul Myners, was a director of GLG Partners. They also said Labour's £1million donor Jon Aisbitt, non-executive chairman of Man Group, one of the world's largest hedge fund managers, had 'profited handsomely' from short-selling.
