convenient not mentioning the ruling party morelike - isn't far from the mark imho.

If they're not careful we might yet get to rake up some of the crass idiocy of the times. My own take is that Broon's insistence / bribery in the HBOS malarkey was conspiracy to defraud (me a Lloyds customer / shareholder)


Oh yes - and that "joke" about there being "no money left"


I note the BBC are featuring this video - where I'm surprised they didn't invite Gordon to display his skills with some gold.

Sorry to be a broken record about the BBC - I do appreciate it's tiresome. But can anyone offer an explanation as to why the BBC are running with the story that they have a scandal about the LIBOR-fixing activity, which implicates the Bank of England, but nowhere in their news coverage do they mention that it also apparently includes the (then) UK Government?

The recording, which was played (and admittedly not censored) on this evening's 6pm news on BBC Radio 4 (and which can be listened to here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-39548313) clearly mentions pressure being brought to bear by the UK Government and by the Bank of England. So why single out the BoE and not mention the government, when running with the story?

OVO eh? - that's interesting - in the sense that my pal is effusive about the service he's had....

My own prejudice with mobile phone electricity billing is that they are guilty until proved innocent. Back in the 1990s some telecom companies were (in my direct personal experience) truly exploring the outer bounds of what they could get away with on the billing front.

The Wikipedia entry about the breakup of AT&T in the 1980s is extremely coy about the actual reason for the breakup of the company - which was as I understand it centred around Federal Government billing fraud and egregious monopolistic antics. The billing fraud was absolutely epic I was told by one grizzled veteran in the late 80s - AT&T were literally just dialing in a fat profit.

Hmm Why's no one mentioned this fault before?

Because no one noticed any difference in the performance of solar panels before?

Money spent on fixing solar panels is not sufficiently subsidy efficient, to make it worthwhile for those that farm the subsidies?

No one wants to know if the fall in prices of solar panels equates to a fall in quality when used outdoors, rather than in Computer Modelled conditions?

tomo, apologies, I may have mixed up UN planned economic disastrous failure policies with EU planned economic disastrous failure directives. Figureres and Hildegaard are easily confused, but their objectives seldom differ.
