Labour systems have stood fast against ' a serous cyber attack. Apparently the mode of attacks was to overload the traffic on their systems to slow them down significantly enough to render them useless....... I had to laugh, no change there then.
Sounds more like desperation than anything. Just take a step back, what exactly can BEM do? In the grand scheme of things absolutely nothing, in short they have submitted their application and are awaiting a reply. You've got to be proactive but are restricted at every level. The government wants no more dialogue on the application so you have to be seen to be actually doing something. This latest effort is just one of many such actions, giving the illusion that Beowulf Mining are in control of the situation. Save the legal stuff until the government makes a decision and it's the wrong one.
They might be squeezing out their smaller rivals from the mortgage market but Lloyds main competition will be coming from one of the big four...... perhaps. HSBC has drawn up plans to double the size of its British bank in an audacious bid to close the gap on the country's biggest lender Lloyds.
I'm beginning to think they hand out licence's as a way of a free geological survey to find out exactly what the obscure regions of Sweden are actually sitting on.
As a point of interest how did Vardar Minerals Limited arrive at a figure of over 7 million pound valuation? (I think that figure is correct, just got in from the pub). Vardars presentations of its Balkan projects don't reveal much just the usual illustrated upbeat report of potential mineralisation. To be honest I can't be rsed to do any homework on all this diversification for me its Kallak or nothing, and at this moment in time its nothing.
I know it makes sense to diversify but can any investor here shed any light on throwing money at Vardar Minerals?
Nothing of interest here regarding Lloyds, but we have an election going on, the result of which could have a detrimental effect on the Lloyds Banking Group. It appears admin in their wisdom have taken on the mantle of defending the party that will have the most negative effect on all who are invested here. Get your act together lse, can't you see what you're doing, alienating the posters who have supported you during the lean 'years.' Either let it go or be neutral.
If there's to be any legal challenges this would suspend all decisions concerning a Kallak license. Dangerous course to take imo, as it could be tied up in the courts longer than we have already waited. There would be no government action whilst any legal challenges are made. No change really, but they will have a readymade excuse.
The importance of the Eurozone is slowly diminishing. LONDON (Reuters) - The United States has pushed past Germany and France as the most common trading partner for British businesses, and looks set to keep this position after Britain leaves the European Union, according to an annual survey by HSBC.
Just looked at my previous trades and it was back in May when I sold @ 256p taking the loss as it was in 'free fall.' Happy to say that I have recouped those losses, it's taken longer than I envisaged, but tbf haven't spent as much time following markets as I should have lately. If I've learnt one thing over the years you have to devote the time and effort to get the returns.
Newboy make yer mind up, first you say peeps didn't know what they voted for, then you say give em another go. You say "Is it Boris's Deal, Corbyn's deal or Farage's no deal" Choices, choices! What was so difficult about a simple leave or remain. Half of your lot don't know the difference between a courgette and a marrow. FFS, get real mate.
Has anyone noticed that the flags on college green outside HOC have all but changed from some dismal blue ones with a few star's on to a plethora of glorious union jacks. Funny that.......... Common sense will prevail in the end.
Wonder what the Q3 statement brings tomorrow. One thing for sure is it won't be so dire as good ol' Deutsche Bank who have just announced another loss. 832 million euro ($924.35 million) loss in the third quarter, that's a lot of restructuring. Didn't they blame restructuring on the last quarter loss?
