Looks about 13. Not being funny but, what the hell would he know about anything much? The world is in financial turmoil and the BBC go down to the city and hold an interview with the office boy:roll: The daft thing is that nobody seems to get the real cause of all this. Its all about oil. Its running out and this much vaunted recovery is impossible to achieve without increasing quantities of it. Instead we have DECREASING quantities of it. Why are the middle East countries suddenly interested in Football, the Olympics, Tourism, Man Built Islands etc, when they were anonymous during their true boom times in the 70's and 80's? The simple answer is that they know they are running out (despite what they tell OPEC about their reserves to keep their influence). They are desperate not to return to what they were before the oil, i.e nomadic camel herders. The world oil price has been rising at a time of stagnation. Why? Stop and think what will happen if we actually recover and demand for oil picks up? Its a no brainer. Massively rising oil costs will strangle any recovery at birth. It was predicted many years ago and is coming home to roost big time. We should have been planning for this 40 years ago and we failed. This is not and never really was a credit crunch. Its a fuel crisis and its terminal.
