BBC presenters aghast as trader pours scorn on efforts to save the red squirrel

For the second day running, an outspoken City trader left interviewers open-mouthed as he admitted that traders ‘don’t really care that much’ about the prospect of red squirrel extinction in the UK either, and that rescue packages being put together to bail it out were ‘doomed’.

Alessio Rastani astonished BBC viewers yet again today by describing his hopes of profiting from the decline of the red squirrel.

The self-styled ‘independent trader’ claimed that as well as his recession dream, he had ‘also been dreaming of [red squirrels dying out] for three years’, as efforts to provide a sustainable habitat for the UK’s native squirrel on Brownsea Island in Poole harbour continued to stall.

Mr Rastani predicted, ‘The red squirrel is toast’, and would be wiped out in 12 months but insisted that ‘anybody’ can profit from dying wildlife with the right ‘hedging strategies’.
