    LONDON (Reuters) - Right-wing "nutters" in the United States Congress holding up a deal to prevent a catastrophic debt default are a greater risk to the global financial system than problems in the euro zone, a British minister said Sunday.

    Business Secretary Vince Cable said "irresponsible" people who had been gleefully anticipating the collapse of the euro currency had been confounded after European leaders agreed a second rescue package for debt-stricken Greece last week.

    "The irony of the situation at the moment, with markets opening tomorrow morning, is that the biggest threat to the world financial system comes from a few right-wing nutters in the American congress rather than the euro zone," he told BBC television.

    Cable, a former economist known for speaking his mind, has previously denounced bankers as "spivs and gamblers."

    Again after we win it all back in 2012, right wing nutter will pull Europe's chestnuts out of the fire.

    Did he mention that Obama is a Failed Leader?

    The debt ceiling and the budget are two different things.

    This isn't about the budget.

    Maybe you need to read a little more about the subject.

    A socialist English economist has issues with the US government. Meanwhile the British government has problems with a US media mogul. Oh noes!

    I hate to tell you, but the conservatives are in power in Britain.

    That's how kooky the Tea Party is.

    The conservatives in Britain think they are nuts.
