  1. have you read his bio on wiki:- In January 2009, he was asked by the Labour Government to undertake a review of commercial radio in the UK, which was published in April 2009.[9] In order to stop a high percentage of commercial radio stations losing money, Myers recommended that regulators could remove the imperative for local radio to be produced from within a geographic boundary; tailored news feeds alluding to a geographic area could be produced from one big building.[10] A number of his recommendations were taken up within the Digital Britain report and the Digital Economy Act. The changes lead to Smooth Radio merging its five England stations into one quasi-national station, with local news feeds produced from GMG Radio's headquarters in Salford Quays, and Global Radio halving the number of its Heart stations through co-local content.[11]
  2. but did he really sell the shares?? in the newspaper it says:- Mr Quinn confirmed he had held 1.4 million shares in the company but on learning of his appointment as acting AG he had disposed of the majority of his shares 'to avoid any suggestions it was in my interest to seek to influence any decision making in government concerning Sefton" On the last AR it shows as joint shareholders ML & Mrs HJ Quinn = 1.403,656 shares look at the choice of words in the newspaper article and why held and not owned? disposed of and not sold what in number terms does majority refer to? and besides my what about his wife's interest? you might also wonder:- to whom? and if an outright disposal, or not, i.e. held on trust and if so by who for whom ? and at what price (if any)? In the interests of openness and transparency surely the information should be made public. What do you think? you might also chew over and consider that, per the last published accounts to 31 Dec 2011, John Quinn acting AG had a loan due to him by the Sefton Group of £220,833 ( he had previously lent the company £250,000 at rate of 8% (presumably per annum?) as working capital). wonders if any of the previous Government £450,000 loan last year or the more recent loan has been used to repay the acting AG's loan? answers or comments please. thank you.

  3. on MR it reports:_ Pinewood investment still safe: Minister Published online at 16/05/2013 12:33:00 Treasury Minister Eddie Teare says the Island’s investment in Pinewood has been vindicated by a rising share price – despite ambitious expansion plans being turned down. Yesterday, South Buckinghamshire Council told the film studio behind James Bond blockbuster Skyfall was told it couldn’t go ahead with a £200 million expansion plan. The Manx government holds a ten per cent stake in the firm, and Mr Teare says the planning application will now go to UK Communities Minister Eric Pickles. Mr Teare says the setback didn’t affect the value of the government’s investment: http://www.lse.co.uk/ShareChart.asp?sharechart=PWS eh??
  4. since the end of Feb 2013 through to Wednesday 17 April the mid-market share price was pretty much flat at 274p - then by Tuesday 23 April it had risen to 280p the following Monday 29th April there was a Stock Exchange announcement http://www.lse.co.uk/share-regulatory-news.asp?shareprice=PWS&ArticleCode=sz1bciiu&ArticleHeadline=US_Joint_Venture_Agreement_and_Trading_Update the price has since come off and is now 277.5 why would it have risen like that just before an announcement and since then fallen back?
  5. do you think by any chance some Govt mis-information in that Twickenham Limited should read perhaps as either BALLAPADDAG FARM PRODUCE LIMITED formerly Twickenham Properties Limited or Twickenham Investments Limited, formerly Robinsons Developments Limited and bear in mind allegedly "Twickenham Limited" owns the former Yates' Wine Lodge building where as Anglo Irish Trust that used to be E&Y used to operate from and where Peter Horsthius used to be a director...maybe just co-incidental - what do you think?? which reminds me that I thought I heard or saw on here that Ropbinsons are allegedly owed / were owed a big slab by the Sefton Group.. wonder if the outstanding account has been paid from the Govt loan...
  6. I wonder how much time he now spends in the UK fulfilling his duties as an executive director.

  8. btw just heard the current MR advert looking for an in-house "intern" as from September. but thinks the current intern is the 3rd in the series (?) what is the point of having an intern trained that then isn't offered a full time job, or finds one elsewhere? deja vu, somebody / organisation / Govt (?) "helps out" paying for the intern's "training" (?)
