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.

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.

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 ?
