The Great Depression MkII

MervynKing

Mervyn King – At last an honest banker?

When BSD first began posting comments and news on the gathering global economic storm, the established wisdom amongst bankers and politicians was “Crisis – What Crisis?” Bankers continued to demonstrate unbridled greed and politicians stuck their heads firmly in the sand and hoped the problems would just blow away. The result of that persistent refusal to take necessary decisions has delayed the onset of a widespread depression but made the eventual depression that much more serious.

Louise Mensch to quit as an MP, triggering Corby by-election

LouiseMensch

Conservative politician and novelist Louise Mensch is to stand down as an MP, the party has announced.

The MP for Corby is moving to New York with her three children to be with her husband of a year, Peter Mensch, who is manager of rock band Metallica.

Could this be an opportunity for the UK Independence Party to win its first Westminster seat? There are some indications that Tory voters are planning to register a protest at the LibDem management of the Coalition by lending their votes to the UK Independence Party.

Latest Update Improves Smartphone Access

Improving Global Service

When the FIRE Project began in 1995, we had to consider that many visitors would access our first portals using very low speed modems and character-based client systems. Since that time, very slow speed access has reduced dramatically and today is almost entirely confined to those visitors who access our portals via radio modems from very remote areas and from boats at sea. Even here, access equipment has been increasingly replaced by satphones and windowing client software. As these forms of access become less common, visitors are accessing our portals from much smaller, faster, more portable smart phones but the most common access is by broadband and WiFi connected windowing client systems. Since 1995 we have attempted to maintain service for the older and less capable client systems, while improving access for the latest, fastest and most mobile client systems.

Closing in, on the end of the 2011-12 Season
By AY MultiMedia

Goto Skipper of the Year pointscore25 April 2012: With only two pointscoring regatta’s to go, Top of the Gulf (May 4-8) & Samui Regatta (May 29 – June 3) an interesting scenario has developed and after the Rolex China Sea Race and the Commodore’s Cup have been run and done, a couple of new possibilities come into the equation. This now makes it 234 skippers and 221 yachts that have scored points after ten events have been completed. Although Neil Pryde has contested all but one of the regattas held this season and Hi Fi has contested eight events, only the best six results count towards the prestigious AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year awards, so their increment has been reduced to bettering earlier regatta scores. Two good results for the Fred Kinmonth/Nick Burns EFG Bank Mandrake brings their regatta tally to six and close in to only eleven points behind Pryde. They are entering the Samui Regatta in the hotly contested 40 foot class and exceptional results will be their last chance to topple Pryde at the final event.
