Well, we've had our money laundering audit and the dreaded letter arrived a couple of weeks ago . I suppose it is a bit like a health inspector in a restaurant , they'll always find something that is not quite to their satisfaction.
An accountant in business
I've been blogging on my website www.formationsdirect.com for some time with my non-PC view of the world of economics,business and other stuff. If you like to read the views of somebody who doesn't "toe the party line" you've come to the right place. Government cock-ups, financial turmoil , business scandals and people's behaviour - I've got something to say about it , whether you like it or not.
Once again I listened to a radio program about rising energy costs.
It's impossible to escape reports of wasted food , every few months . When I was a wee boy in the 1970s there was no such thing, because our parents and grandparents came from a generation that knew about shortages , hunger and the value of last week's bread.
Last week I turned up at home with a Bentley Arnage Red Label . After many weeks of painstaking research and testdrives across the country I finally purchased a car that I think is an absolute beauty, inside and out.
Ah , here we go again . If you price it to high demand will drop and they'll tell us "we told you there is no appetite in the investing community" . Price it to be attractive and it's being given away.
Why can politicians never say "well done " to their oponents ?
This blog is being written at 1.15am because I am waiting up to collect my mother from the airport on a very delayed flight . Last time on this flight we got home at 6am ! This time the airport indicates a 2.25am arrival but Easyjet states it landed at 1.05am .
Back to the old chestnut . Do blatant electioneering policy statements win votes or do the punters get turned off at the thought of being bribed ? Worse still, is it illegal under the Bribery Act ? Would you advise a client to vote Labour in order to reduce their business rates ?
Well then, a deal done late at night , and the first 6% is out of the door . Some people are grumbling about the paltry return but the remit was to save the economy and get back the initial outlay to the taxpayer . Make no mistake, the collapse of Lloyds would have screwed things up royally .
I have been looking closely at my post , both at home and work over recent months .
Like many visitors to AWeb I am trying my utmost to avoid falling victim to the dreaded middle age spread . I am not exactly sure why this is such an obsession , but that's the way it is with 40 somethings.
