Honkers Bonkers TaxAvonkers - word from the dark side aka Running Fat Cats Anon is that there'll be the usual token suspects rolled out to feed the maw but the inner sancti will live to squirrel again 'JacoSkates' Cater skims on. thin ice intact but creaking. but only thanks to certain property 'pung-yao' having less betty-confetti to sprinkle around and there being a certain tit-4-tat deal coming up that the policiers plan to use as a deal-sweetener. All wayy above my head and certainly my PayGrade.

Honkers&Shankers wheeze ~ good heavens, i thought this was just some prankster rumourer. Lawks-a-daisy, maman had dozens of pals using HSBC wiles and here correspondence bag bulges with connivings and boastings of coups graced. My in-box even more, come to think of it ~ le tout vieille 'Ong-kong. All the old robber barons and China Hands swapped their 'clever little men' and passed them around their mates, parrticularly 'distressed gentlefolk widows' such as mother. How terribly funny - not that it helped mum but Aileen Scott was always urging maman to let her 'refer' her and Jack Carter was ever the pal on tricks and bells round the pension mulberry bush. There are even some business cards from Green with names and squiggles. I know - the Sorby file; that's where mum filed the juicy tips.
