Nell Diamond had some choice words for British Chancellor George Osborne and Labour Party leader Ed Milliband today after her father Bob resigned as Barclays chief executive officer following charges that the firm manipulated interbank lending rates:
Minutes later the tweet was deleted. In its place a message appeared: “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.”
Miss Diamond’s Twitter feed makes clear her affection for her father. One recent photograph shows Mr Diamond holding the FA cup with Chelsea captain John Terry.
She wrote: “I send my dad a picture of my chelsea celebration, he counters with this. You got this one, B.”
In another entry she wrote: “Begged my dad to take off his animal-print tie at Soho House. Now he’s talking bean soup with a man in a feathered fedora. Whatta town!”
Soho House is a private members’ club with branches in New York and London.
In another photograph she is photographed with her father in a box at what appears to be a Jay-Z concert. They are holding their hands in a ‘diamond’ shape, a gesture popularised by the rapper.
Ms. Diamond graduated from Princeton last year, lives in Manhattan and works for Deutsche Bank. Sadly, her Tweet has been deleted; happily, it lives on.
