Shorting and Mary Poppins

As you will see above, we've dedicated today's issue to our own news of the launch of TechMarketView LLP. Normal service will be resumed shortly!

However, I couldn't resist this message from Jon Cross at Anite in response to the Shorting article last week.


Reading your blog on Shorting - an entertaining observation was made to me yesterday highlighting the salutary song from Mary Poppins. I am sure you recall that in the film the father was a director of a bank, and at one point bursts into song to declaim the virtues of sound banking - something along the lines of:

A British bank is run with precision
A British bank demands nothing less
Tradition, discipline, and rules must be the tools
Without them - disorder, chaos, moral disintegration
In short, we have a ghastly mess!

Sums current events up quite nicely I think. Maybe Mary Poppins has something to teach the financial industry !
