Re: UCAS applications

1. It is a con. 2. Many of them don't get employed. 3. Some of them do become maths and science teachers, i.e. the ones who weren't good enough to do a 'real' engineering degree get to teach the next generation. 4. The university and all the lecturers laugh all the way to the bank. They didn't have ...

Re: Switch from Interactive Investor

Overall I think that ii are either the lowest cost broker, or equal lowest, or the ones that are currently (occasionally) lower will be forced to raise their prices to stay viable.

Basically I don't think it is worth you moving.

just my 2c

Re: BAT & other tobacco companies - Daily Telegraoh

With this particular tier 1 supplier I would estimate that there is a parity of power between them and the tobacco OEMs. They are in themselves a very significant business. If they were in the UK they'd probably be a FTSE 100 business themselves. This particular supplier has been in the tobacco fiel...

One of my key suppliers in my dayjob had a business that a few years ago was 95% exposed to tobacco. They were a tier 1 supplier to the big tobacco companies. Over the last 5-years they have aggressively restructured their business to reduce their tobacco exposure to 50%, whilst remaining a tier 1 s...

Re: PATISSERIE HOLDINGS (CAKE)

I too suspect this has been going on a long time, and snowballed out of hand. If it started pre-IPO then a class action will take aim at one group of people/organisations. If post-IPO then another. However, as to catching it via external audits, surely it doesn't take that much of an audit to check ...
