The Morning Rant

07/10/11 -- Moody's have cottoned onto what we already knew and downgraded a dozen different UK financial firms including Lloyds TSB, RBS and Nationwide this morning.

Meanwhile shares in troubled French/Belgian bank Dexia fell 17% before trading in them was suspended yesterday.

Sales of shoe boxes however have rocketed as investors look for a safe place to keep their money.

In America (where else?) one of the two blokes accused of driving around with their dead pal on the back seat of their car taking him to various bars and a strip club says that he thought that the guy had simply passed out.

It's an easy mistake to make. It was about a month before I realised that MrsN#1 had died in her sleep. That's right, you've heard it already, the sex was the same as normal but the washing & ironing was starting to mount up.

On a brighter note, I'm looking forward to cashing in on what I am reliably informed is a certainty when Wayne Rooney gets sent off for headbutting the ref in the 64th minute of tonight's game against Montenegro.
