I'm with the Ed on this one. This article shows just how easy it is to manipulate the system to your own advantage. A bank is involved and besides, a bit of nooky thrown in never hurt anyone.

I know Paul Warner, ex Hunt Lascaris. He couldn't give a toss. He speaks his mind, does his own thing. In some ways I admire that trait, but there is a time and a place for it.

I think Noseweek have done a good job of exposing the deceipt -- but you know it really isn't such a big story - a story like this is small fry - concentrate on the big stuff -- this is actually quite boring - move on Noseweek, let this one go!

Editor's Note
Jeff, you know others may not agree with you... didn't you read it to the end!
