Interesting story though.

To have all that money swimming around such that you don't miss the odd million here or there!

he must have noticed something. at least the jury reckoned he must have

I do think working as a secretaty in a place like Goldman Sachs must be a bit surreal.

There you are on what £25-30k a year adn the guys you are working for are earning £millions just in bonuses alone.

Not an excuse for her, but I suppose she just thought she deserved some of the big bucks too!

can't imagine she was on pennies tho. i mean she probably DID have quite a decent salary compared to most of us

the poor little boy - both parents in prison
Also, do you think it was right to do a docu-drama about the whole thing when the child is presumably highly identifiable at school etc/it's very exposing for him.
S'pose it's a chance to see Meera Syal on TV, it's such a rare treat after all...

And when GS did some major deal or merger or something a few years ago, they shared the profits across the whole workforce, whatever their status within the hierarchy.

it is really dreadful for the poor son.Also feel sorry for the PG freind who presumably had to repay the £40K Joyti 'gave' her.

Cod - I agree with you - but don't think thats how she would have seen it!

banshee Wed 08-Jun-05 22:46:05

Common form of neglect amongst the children of WAFH mothers, Cod, Fringe Excess.
