Pair Of Fly Guns

5.0 out of 5 stars SHARP SHOOTERS, 30 Aug 2014
This review is from: Pair Of Fly Guns (Misc.)
Appealed to the baser hunting instincts of 7, grandchildren aged 6 to 15 during a week long self catering holiday in France. Flies were in abundance initially until the youngster waged a sustained campaign against them with the fly guns and as the week went on their numbers (flies that is) were much reduced. Not too many shots were made at the adults.....mercifully.

A great amount of fun was had by our seven grandchildren during our week long sojourn at a French Holiday Home with a delightful swimming pool with these relatively low cost water guns which were very reliable, and efficient but not too powerful. A good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S ALL THERE, 30 Aug 2014

No option but to give top marks for this Michelin National Map of Northern France. It is well produced, and as I do not have the knowledge, time, or slightest desire to become a Cartographer, I must accept that the representations on the map are accurate. Used it recently for a trip in Northern France and everything appeared to be located where the map showed. Isn't this all that is required?

Good for a laugh which why as a staid grey man of nearing 72, I got one of these faux tattoos, and wore it at a family get together. Produced a suitably "what the devil have you got on now Father?" response and much comment. Never going to fool the world but nevertheless good for a giggle.

5.0 out of 5 stars DELIGHTFUL, 29 Aug 2014
Absolutely delightful fragrance with as you would expect but do not always get, that unique and erotic smell of a fresh wild rose at a price that puts most other over mixed and blended perfumes to shame.


Bad Banks: Greed, Incompetence and the Next Global Crisis
Bad Banks: Greed, Incompetence and the Next Global Crisis
by Alex Brummer
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A LESSON NEVER LEARNED, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How many times have we heard or read a Banker, Politician or Regulator spouting forth the hackneyed utterance “ We have learned a lesson” in connection with the meltdown in the World’s Banking System following the 2008 Credit Crunch?

Well has the lesson been assimilated, understood, and acted upon ensuring a non-repetition of the disastrously inept management of the banking system that came within a hair’s breadth of bringing the Global Monetary Structure crashing down causing unimaginable economic hardship across the spectrum?

Alex Brummer’s excellent, well researched and succinctly argued book “Bad Banks” deals initially with the causes, and various fire fighting responses by the USA, UK, and Europe to the crisis. However, he goes on to detail areas where it is quite clear that the Banks had not ‘learned the lesson’ and were continuing to manipulate and/or milk the system with an ever increasing voraciousness.

In depth analysis and commentary is given on the scandalous and perhaps criminal Libor and Interest Rate Rigging, the ever increasing use of casino type derivative trading, the widespread participation by major banks in Money Laundering, the willful mass mis-selling of Personal Protection Insurance, the pressure selling to small and medium sized businesses of complex Interest Rate Hedging products, and other scandals. This together with many examples of incompetence, unwillingness to accept that the level of banker’s overall remuneration is obscene particularly bearing in mind that it is other people’s money they are using to ‘play’ with not their own, and dogged reluctance to voluntarily embrace increased capital requirements and regulatory measures, demonstrates loud and clear that all is not well and there is a serious ongoing undermining of our future economic security.

A very good but extremely worrying book.
