Dear Bank Manager ...

As someone struggling with reduced capacity to repay my commitments in my own little micro-economy, might I suggest that we try to formulate a rescue plan for me, based on the proposals to save the euro. It seems that if you lend me even MORE, I can leverage the debt by selling it on nearly tenfold and make enough to trade my way out of my indebtedness to you. Maybe Tony Blair can broker the deal - I think he's still got at least one golden finger to stick in a pie somewhere.
Deal or No Deal?

I Should Cocoa

And so back to greed and its consequences (see previous post), the ruse of shrinking product size as an alternative to increasing prices continues unabated. Cadbury have now 'pruned their Roses', having already lopped a few squares off your favourite choccie bars. Are they damaging their reputation by trying to pull the wool over our eyes like this? - vote with your wallets, folks.
