Maybe it wasn't a good time to break more bad news. Another story which appeared in a scottish newspaper last week and has failed to make the headlines is that of the beleagured HBOS.

100 staff and their partners on an all expenses paid 4 day jolly to New York, spending money included, apparently as a reward for exceptional performance during the year. Maybe having a kneesup with Lehman brothers, Freddie mac& may.

The od boss of HBOS re-employed by the group merger for 60,000 . No, not annually, but monthly. I can't remember, dollars euros or pounds , not much difference now.
