As the nephew quoted I must distance myself from my cantankerous uncle Cal who obviously hankers badly for the good old days when a spade was called a spade and a trust a trust.
Get with the groove uncle Cal, we live in an age of deception and to expect to trust a trust is as silly as thinking you can bank on a bank or expect good health after visiting a doctor.
Yes, it may not be good governance or good for consumers but its hardly a monopoly…the market is well shared by many other international gold diggers like Babcock Power…dam I forgot to offload those shares…and looking at the graph on my computer im not sure whether Bab Power is long for the world…thats a big hole you dug for yourself but you did make my clients some tidy sums so thanks for that.
Oh the ETSA enquiry…hmmm…New Horizon Power looks to be the best bet to take place of Babcock and if they’re coal scrubbing technology is as good as it looks on paper worth a chat to your stockbroker or local MP or just drop me a line and we can snort some coke and cut a deal before lunch!
Uncle Cal, sorry but your super fund was 90% loaded with B&B shares which I forgot (ha ha) to sell so you might consider not going to Europe this summer..whoops!!

geez, glad I don’t have a nephew like that!!!
it does seem like the old uncle whose knee one sat on in the past, and expected a couple of shillings to go buy something in the shops, is gone…or is it?
Rumour has it that in a certain mining town the workers get paid very well, pay minimal rent, then get it back as rent assistance, nor do they pay for water. Wonder how long that will last with uncle Babcock, and aunty etsa being paid in yuan instead of dollars and the worker conditions change to home country ones.
