Several of them have increased......not just one. Is there a feeling they are acting in cahoots and they know sthng PIs dont. Like size of FCA fine or similar?

It's odd shorters haven't been closing. But as Mark1973 said " bit in that article I don’t like is the “ fca are concerned about metros declining financial position “ That sounds like a lower than we would like offer would be seen as acceptable".
Odey and co aren't stupid. If they thought a bid was happening from a position of strength they would be closing in droves. Maybe the feeling among shorters is that nobody will move until after FCA investigation is completed?
If this had legs, the Sunday papers would've been all over it. Not a peep. I do expect T/O interest but not for a few months, not least due to FCA fine/ investigation outcome needed + T/O rules being prohibitive to any new entrant until the year's high has passed.

no comment bout this in weekend press? I've come across a few rumours in city wine bars in my years in this planet.the question is what agenda did the merlot drinker have.....long or short. I don't know the answer, but I pose the question!
