Nobody else here admits to knowing him.

Let us know of any other/better questions you have in mind.thanksJennifer Wed 30 Apr 2008 13:47:22 GMT+1 Fearless Fred http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/04/mapping_the_credit_crunch.shtml?page=69#comment9 Al (8) You don't need to enter your answer every time. If you go to the iPM blog entry, about half way through Jennifer's text, (just after a line of text in BOLD) there are two links. The first takes you to the page where you can register your answer. The second takes you direct to the map, thereby avoiding the issue you raise about skewing the results...FFred Wed 30 Apr 2008 09:23:46 GMT+1 needsanewnickname http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/04/mapping_the_credit_crunch.shtml?page=61#comment8 Good point, al.And does 'fuel' mean petrol/diesel for cars or public transport, or heating fuel?I have to confess to not feeling horribly sorry for people who won't be able to have such a pricey holiday this year, but that could just be sour grapes.(They're sour because the ripe ones in the supermarket are too expensive) ;o) Tue 29 Apr 2008 22:47:41 GMT+1 al_opecia http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/04/mapping_the_credit_crunch.shtml?page=53#comment7 DO I really have to vote every time I would like to view the map? I suspect that this might skew the results a tad.

As it is, maybe the reason there isn't much activity on it (ystavani @5) is that other people too find it a bit difficult to get to.

The gummit doesn't want people passing out from sniffing petrol fumes.

I can hardly wait for the other shoe - or rather pump - to drop. Tue 29 Apr 2008 16:51:31 GMT+1 IlLupo22 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/04/mapping_the_credit_crunch.shtml?page=23#comment3 Your map options miss out a very significant one - employment (or unemployment) - already know of people being made redundant (and I don't mean city bankers). Its starting to affect other industries and markets.

The banks claim it's those at 10 dunces street, those at 10 dunces street claim it is a global problem. No it isn't. Isn't it a bunch of vastly overpaid investment bankers who have spun the wheel and lost?Shouldn't they just get the sack?Surely shouldn't the market just be left 'to adjust' without BoE intervention?

Pitching a new defence for what is going wrong with us the Radio 4 listeners? Madness isn't it? How many excuses now allowed - no sign of it ebbing?How about some action instead of reasons why or why not?Crunchie anyone? Tue 29 Apr 2008 15:37:38 GMT+1
