Hi Eadwig & Soi,

Thanks Soi re comment at 17.26! At least there's some light relief with this Comp compared to some very trying times recently with leveraged trading! I couldn't emphasise that enough.

Eadwig,

Mine in my previous post certainly doesn't work. The common understanding is of course, "it ain't over until the large (fat) lady sings"... whereas I posted as if it's not over whilst she sings. Doh! To me in my own little world it makes more sense for things NOT to be over whilst she still sings. But where I got that false idea from, I haven't a clue.

Anyway, all the best to both & all, including in Comp! (wink wink )

swizzpaul, "So I surmise your happy for heroin and other illegal substances to be freely available. "

Yes please.

"What has ten legs and two teeth? A methadone queue!"

Seems to be some odd mix up here between meth amphetamine users, who for some reason tend to lose their teeth, and methadone, which is a heroin substitute, the users of which don't generally lose their teeth faster than anyone else.

So the joke just doesn't work, on many levels. Its as bad as "What sort of pet has four wheels and is covered in fluff?"

"Have you never heard of drug dealers laundering their profits"

I shall endeavour to leave the belittling to you however, I can't seem to recall any direct connection to the drug trade either. Of course many criminals have their fingers in a variety of pies, however the other reports of criminality refer to 'cyber crime' only. No direct mentions of drugs or terrorism. As such and accordingly, is your suggestion accurate or something you just made up? For some reason.

That'll do here. UT 191.55. - Well done to MetalMuppet for 2nd within a whisker & Callun for close 3rd. (clapping )

As an aside, back in the real world, naturally would’ve preferred a much higher finish due to 4 longs here. But still hopeful for a decent Q3 next month. Whilst my other longs also struggling, at least most of my huge LLOY’s hold in profit. So things could be worse (could be better).

Looking ahead, whilst the large lady with a healthy appetite still sings loudly, I imagine Eadwig prowling about backstage aiming to blow up her PA system fairly soon. (wink wink )

With only 3 weeks left, not a lot to deny Eadwig as long as he keeps picking up points, unless one of the chasing few can string together an excellent late run. That most probably rules me out. (sad )

Death on the streets? From my understanding these guys are just a bunch of common criminals and I don't seem to recall a terrorism angle to this story reported anywhere. Is your suggestion accurate or something you just made up? For some reason.

Cmon wakey wakey fly boy. Have you never heard of drug dealers laundering their profits - or do you think they was putting it into an ISA .
So I surmise your happy for heroin and other illegal substances to be freely available.


Here's one for your. What has ten legs and two teeth?


A methadone queue!

loan interest by mmb123

  Thu, 21 Sep 2017 10:41:00 GMT
I have an interest in Barc but little knowledge. I had the feeling that back about 2008 Barc had to take a loan on which they had to pay 10-12% interest for 10 years. at the time I reckoned the interest would cost £600 M each your. Does that ring a bell with anyone? If so can we expect this cost to reduce soon???

Time for value creating deals by stutes

  Thu, 21 Sep 2017 09:09:00 GMT
Today's announcement of a possible deal between Commerzbank and Unicredit or BNP Paribas shows the Eirope is moving on from Brexit.

I think Barclays should look at deals so as to release shareholder value. The bank has calculated a value of 290p+ but we trade around 191p. Time for action on the share price

As in any place of work there are always some who look to get round the internal systems that are in place. Indeed, at my time working for Barclays we had a member of staff who, along with two others worked out that they could 'sign off' loans to their friends and each other, have them 'double checked, by each other and verified. Thus did each person walk away with thousands of of pounds of 'free' money! Until they got caught .... removed from their post, no pension, no profit sharing, no ceaper loans or mortgages, and, much difficulty in getting a new job due to lack of references!

I feel the action of individuals in branches is no relection on the people at the very top, there are always those looking for an easy way to get their hands on money or goos to sell, inn every organisation. Even if its the 'odd pen', photocopy paper etc etc
