Subject: RE: BS: If you see Sid tell him . . .
We have just seen (or not as the case may be) the sale of "Norweb" to two banks(USA and Australian). United Utillities have sucked the bones and spat what was left out! They now have a contract to "run" the electric in the norweb area for 6 years and own none of it!
Norweb shares were £7 at the time of sale. UU shares are now £7! (they started off at £4 ...... but they paid a dividend of nearly 10%!
Anybody else have a problem with that?
as to Maggies state funeral ....... can we do it this week?
