Inspired by recent news, and reminiscent of Gerald Ratner standing up at his family quoted company AGM in the 1990s and announcing that his best selling jewellery products were equal in value to an M&S Prawn Sandwich selling at £2.49 (which destroyed the company in one week), who would you vote as of equal 'twuntness' for potential destruction of all they have earned at this point in time;

a) The Lion Killing Dentist of Minnesota - for being simply out of touch. And a lion killer.

b) British Telecom - the leading communication organisation in the UK that just increasingly fails to communicate with its customers. And doesn't have ears so it cant listen.

c) Seth Blatter and Lord Sewel. For mistakenly thinking they were special and above the law. You are not on either counts.

My vote is on b). British Telecom are in irreversible decline on customer service [and are run by people with the same qualities as a) and b) ]

A for me.

I've been very happy with my BT service during my 5 years of being a customer, plus I couldn't care less what Lord Sewel gets up to in the privacy and comfort of his own brothel room.

I like lions tho.

A. Did he hell think it was a legal hunt. He surely knew it had been lured out of the reservation. If he was close enough to wound it with a crossbow, he would, or should, have seen the tracking collar round it's neck. He's been caught out & he knows it.

C) I can't always condemn killing animals for sport, which leaves wiggle room for whether big game shooting might be okay in some circumstances.

But Sewell... come on. The guy's job was to monitor & uphold high moral standards in public life! What a numpty.
