Northern Rock crisis needs careful handling to avert slowdown - M&S CEO UPDATE

(Updating with further comment from Rose)

LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Marks & Spencer CEO Stuart Rose urged

authorities to tread carefully in handling the Northern Rock "crisis" to avert a

possible downturn in consumer confidence, which would be "bad" in the run-up to

Christmas.

He has got is **** about face here. All the NR customers are taking their money out to spend it rather than have it evaporate in another bank. It's a new miracle, the ex-savers coming out to save the economy.

Hoo-ray boulger it's all turning out nice again

Which true meaning? The guy born of a virgin in December, son of god, died to save us, came back to life and went to heaven, or Jesus?

Yes, we must all celebrate the birth of Jesus in the proper fashion. Spending a fortune on imported tat and drinking oneself into oblivion in a sucession of parties - all on the credit card of course :angry:

You know what, I think this year I may change the habit of a lifetime and spend some quality time with my family and attend church - is that not what Cristmas is all about rather than spending as much money as possible? :unsure:

I would be careful about that. IIRC that is the time of greatest family breakdown and strife.

Best thing is to sit in a bolthole with a bottle of Southern Comfort and watch reruns of Only Fools on UK Gold for around ooh 72 hours? Better make that a bottle of SC and a small sherry.

I will let you go to church though. ;)

No no

In New Labour's secular utopia, we must remove the Christmas story out of schools in case it offends the pagans or those with false creeds. And encourage people to go out and borrow and spend as much as possible so that our fat cats can get their Christmas bonuses. And hope the whole nation gets itself incredibly drunk so our wonderful government gets lots of tax in to spend on watching us even more, for our own good, of course.

Or we could sit around pretending to pray to an adult version of the tooth fairy?

Happy to get rid of the Christian twaddle and take it back to

more pagan type routes as a mid winter celebration TBO.

.

No telepathic sky fairy required at my house. ;)

.

It would be nice if we could get rid of the gross consumersim and

take it back to being a bit more about being with your family but

actualy i'll take consumerism over irationalism anyday.

oh it's anything goes these days

found a new moral basis yet?

Yes, it is based on society and it's expectations. Always has been.

Of course if you want to use a book that says disobedient children should be killed, and rape victims can be bought, go ahead. Your positon with regards to slavery is already quite clear.

True meaning of Christmas = pagan festival to celebrate the shortest day.

Most Brits do celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. Most of the Christmas customs that we are used to are pagan in origin.

Ok, this is serious. If the chairman of M&S is worried about where his Christmas bonus is going to come from, it's time for action.

I'm on the phone right now to my old mate Bob "I smell a bit" Geldof to get a few hasbeen rockers together to make a charidee record for Marks and 'Spensive.

The scares about people not spending enough at Christmas get earlier every year!

What puzzles me is why Easter hasn't been commercialised to the same extent. If enough advertisers and marketing people pushed the message that you must buy people presents at Easter, for the sake of the kiddies, etc etc, surely the sheeple would fall for it and the buying bonanza could happen twice a year - or are people still paying off the Christmas bills at Easter?

Yes it would. See area's of Papua New Guinea where cannibalism was practised until very recently.

If morals are absolute, why do they change?

(I have deliberately phrased it so obvious, that even you should be able to grasp the problem here).

so your moral basis allows you to be as depraved as others in your community might be, ok
