12:32pm | Stephen Hester, the chief executive of Britain's state-rescued Royal Bank of Scotland, will not take his hotly-disputed bonus of shares.
One good banker gives the other 99% a bad name.
I am living in a strangely silent world. A drink bottle leaked on my phone during our trip and it made a funny noise and died when I tried to recharge it. Although my daughter gave me one of hers, it unfortunately takes a ridiculous ten days to unlock it. It would have been simpler to buy a new one, but my old sim card has all my phone numbers on it so I really wanted to keep it. That really sucked when I was stuck at the airport for two and a half hours because I hadn't confirmed that I was coming in the morning, not at 8 p.m. and had neither my son's number nor anyone else's I might have called. Makes you wish for the good old days before we had all those conveniences. Back then I might still have carried change for the phonebox if there was one, I may have have even had an address book or at least remembered one or two numbers off the top of my head. grumble! Grumble!
