In A Hole & Still Digging

Can it be much longer before our credit ratings are downgraded? That’s when a drama really does become a crisis. George Osborne has just issued a statement which ends: “Gordon Brown’s denial of the truth about the debt crisis and the need to cut spending whoever wins the election is doing serious economic damage to Britain’s recovery.”

So, Who Is A Consumer, If Not Me?

“Banning advertising of speeds would not be in consumers’ interests,” claims Peter Phillips, a partner in strategy and market development at Ofcom. “It’s critical at the point of purchase that consumers are being advised about what they can reasonably expect.”

When asked why ISPs were being allowed to “lie” to consumers about broadband speeds, Phillips said: “People are not lying to consumers. If you live close to the [telephone] exchange, you can get very close to the speed in the headline.”

With Hope In Our Hearts…

    Woah! Kuyt was impressive – the more it becomes second nature for him to pass when there’s anything else on, the more valuable his strengths. The defence seemed more in control than in the last match – it gave the impression that they didn’t have much to do, but it was because they were working so much better that they could give that impression. Until Alonso’s arrival, it seemed at times as if we were working around our own midfield, so that situation is still causing concern. Nemeth deserved a shout out as well.
