I have never understood the wish to count dollars before bodies. The Australian fires is a good example of this.
With a horrific death toll from hellish fires, the story is awful. I for one will not be worrying about the insurance costs of the fires for the time being. There will be plenty of time to talk about who will foot the bill. Today is not that day.
On the business front , the news is all about Barclays results and the profits announced. Honestly? I don't undertstand them.
I heard on the radio this morning that the devil was in the detail, but never quite realized the devil had such big horns... the top man at Barclays keeps saying 'no' to doing an interview with me. I wonder what he thinks I might ask ?
