The World According To Julia

Recommended Posts

Julia Caeser has just been talking about the gas price rises on BBC News 24. She says the gas price rises might push up inflation (well done Julia), this will mean that IR's won't rise (eh?) which is good news for home owners but savers will suffer.

Now I am confused!

Not about how inflation affects IR's but how someone with so little understanding of finance is able to hold down such a job??!?!?

Then again maybe I've got it all wrong and she's a financial genius.

Indeed, strange statement to say that the rising Gas prices could cause any side affect that would be good for home owners. I bet I can't find many home owners who will be happy after the Gas prices rises. :huh:

What worries me most is that people such as my Dad, who (like Julia) isn't as financially savvy as he believes, will see this and actually believe it.

Did anyone else see it? It was on BBC News 24 so it will probably be on every hour or so)

I watched it with Mr Goat and we were both quite shocked (we knew she was bad but not that bad).

I think this gaff beats the one where she said that the average house price was £200,000, rather than the average 'asking' price (I actually think she might not know the difference).

Who are you all talking about?

Julia Caeser, she is the business presenter for BBC news.

As far as screen presence is concerned, she's not bad, she's clear and easy to understand (which kind of makes things worse). However, she's living proof that 'any old fool will do' seems to be the attitude to recruiting at the Beeb.

Her lack of understanding of how the business and financial worlds work is astonishing considering how much influence she has.

Today she proved that she has no understanding of the MPC's purpose, to keep inflation under control, or infact how inflation is kept under control.

EDIT: Sorry Juliaesk mistake!

Look folks, understanding the Beeb finance ladies is a case of simple mathematics.

You take three ladies:

Karen Bowman

Jenny Scott

Julia Caesar

And three brains:

Brain1

Brain2

Brain3

With me so far? Okay.

Karen Bowman has one brain. That leaves two brains.

Jenny Scott has two brains. That leaves no brains.

And then you've got Julia.

Julia also announced that Shell was making £1.6 million pure profit every hour. Interviewing some pundit who said in the short term that was good but in the medium term it was not good as future oil extraction was going to cost more.

He must mean all that I believe they call the Canadian tar oil. I stand to be corrected. :unsure:

BTW with Julia you can forget the Viagra. :D

I love Julia Caeser. She combines a comedy name with 'not-very-bright-work-experience-girl-with-parents-who-fiddled-her into-the-local-grammar-school' sexiness.

Sorry I don't watch much TV...(although I did enjoy 'Tribe' the other night) Don't know what she looks like. BUT is Julia Caeser her real name?......Or is that her 'stage' name?...Is she , like, a tribute act to the great man many centuries ago? Pray tell me, who is this lady?

this is nothing new. I wrote the following a while back:

... far more interesting is that dosy moron you refer to, Julia Caesar. I recall the heavy fall day. What a performance. First she said it "wasn't all bad news" to which the anchor replied, "what do you mean, -150 points - that a rubbish day." Ten minutes later, and you would have thought ten minutes more informed (okay, you probably did think better made-up), she returned to tell us that miners had had a good day. She the pointed to her prices board and read out an 111 point fall in Xtrata, "The miner". Not even a glimmer of recognition for the contradictory clap-trap she was spouting. Lights on, nobody home. I wrote a letter to the Beeb editor and told then to sack her. They didn't, clearly. .

You bunch of wallies, can't spell Caesar!

No wonder I couldn't trace her at all.

Now at last I've sussed it despite you lot, I can't say I can remember ever seeing her anywhere.

You're right, what a nonentity.

Maybe she meant that the contribution to inflation by gas price rises won't be enough to cause a 0.25% increase in interest rates.

(I didn't see the program, so I'm just trying to look for the 'bleedin obvious' interpretation of what was alledgedly said)

How can the Beeb be full of such morons??

How do these people get employed by the Beeb when they are clearly so useless?

She is a muppet, and I think she's picked up a Labour fag-end and misunderstood. What some politicians and other 'experts' are saying is that because of higher gas prices (which don't show in the CPI) and higher taxes etc rates will not need to go up as they will dampen any consumer spending, i.e. having a similar effect as a rate rise. THis is advanced muppetry on a national scale as it fails to recognise the feed through effect on prices of goods that rely on the use of energy for production and transportion...i.e. everything. This notion, which I think is influencing the BOE will result in a massive jump in inflation later, and a corresponding panic by policy makers and a potential 0.5% hike, followed by another within a month or two. If they just bite the bullet now, they might be OK with 2 0.25% hikes before year-end, but I don't believe they've got the balls.

More classic Julia Caesar (news 24 markets correspondent (yeah, right)) on a day when the market rebounded nearly one whole percentage point (+51 points) :

Anchor : "So not a good day on the markets?" ( SH : more fool him for believing her off camera briefing)

Julia : "No I'm afraid not. A few nerves out there and a lot of read arrows." (SH-> :blink: )

Julia cntd. : "Investors were nervous about interest rates here and in the US so we saw shares being marked down." (SH -> :blink::blink: )

Julia cntd. : "People extremely interested to see what will happen tomorrow with the latest interest rate decision and a bigger than ever number predicting a quarter point rise ... (gets up) okay, so let's take a look at the board." (SH -- (thinks: this is gonna be really amusing)--> :D )

Julia cntd. : "So here's the figures. The ftse actually finishing up 51 points on the day (Julia note to self: must talk more to Alex about the market while he's shagging me during the lunch hour - PS to self: less doggy style), with the 250 also up... " ( SH -> :lol::lol::lol: )

Julia Caesar at it again:

"Very tough day on the markets, with the market ending heavily down [checks screen - J thinks, "hang on, it's nearly unchanged - could have sworn things looked worse from the hotel TV, then again Julian's six-pack was eclipsing my view most of the time: trah-la-la, the things a girl has to do to get hot tips from those city boys: ooooh... where was I...."] ... for most of the day [ SH : :blink: ] [J thinks : "nice work my girl, thinking on the old feet, haven't lost the knack yet - bet nobody noticed"], and there it is down 12."

So how the hell can something finish for most of the day??????

Apart from that and claiming the story was "all down to oil", pretty much an average clueless Julia performance.

Did her parents think it would be funny if her name sounded as much like Julius Caesar as possible for a female ? :blink:
