Zurich smoked out - part 2

Bryce Elder's comments about Zurich's takeover of RSA aired on FT Alphaville's markets live this morning made me chuckle - he really is a witty writer (well, much more amusing than me, at least).

One thing, though, Bryce hasn't touched upon, yet, is Dunbar and whether the RSA board has taken a hard look at Zurich's former banking arm in the UK.

James Hurley, a former colleague from time at The Daily Telegraph, dug up some interesting angles on Zurich's Dunbar earlier this year, revealing in the The Times "Zurich is battling claims that one of its subsidiaries (Dunbar) unfairly forced small businesses and property developers into bankruptcy".

Here is a link to the The Times article: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/business/industries/banking/article4396515.ece      

Food for thought for the RSA board, I guess, ahead of recommending a formal £5.6 billion takeover offer from Zurich?

Or, perhaps the hard-nosed capitalists running the insurer just don't care about Zurich's past activities in the UK property lending market...

  2. My heart is filled with love and happiness because my husband is back to me after a divorce with the help of a genieun spell caster .My name is Becky Miller , I live in California,USA. I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven 9 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://lovespelldrbrave.weebly.com/. } if you have any problem contact Dr Brave ,{ bravespellcaster@gmail.com }, thanks you Dr Brave, i will always be testifying about your good work, and for any questions call me on +1(575) 779-6197.
