In the end, the 24-member bank board, in a statement that all but exonerated wolfie said: "He assured us that he acted ethically & in good faith in what he believed were the best interests of the institution & we accept that. We also accept that others involved acted ethically & in good faith."

‘Don't be deceived when they tell you things are better now.

Even if there's no poverty to be seen because the poverty's been hidden.

Even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new & useless goods that industries foist on you & even if it seems to you that you never had so much, that is only the slogan of those who still have much more than you.

'I do not regret close relationship with Bush'

"BUSH'S IQ IS ACTUALLY 86, NOT 85... BUT I WAS THAT CLOSE..."

· I would take the same position again I WOULD LIE, TELL PORKIES, BULLY, AND GET MY BELLY SCRATCHED IN THE SAME MANNER AGAIN

· There is still work to do for the common good AS LONG AS THERE IS OIL IN IT.

‘BP executives working for Lord Browne spent millions of pounds on champagne-fuelled sex parties to help secure lucrative international oil contracts.

The company also worked with MI6 to help bring about changes in foreign governments, according to an astonishing account of life inside the oil giant.

Abracadabra.. Halliburton's Vanishing Act

The Howard Cabinet's disappearing trick with the WorkChoices name is nothing compared with Halliburton's handling of KBR. After years of accusations of international political interference, bribery and overcharging, Cheney's Crew have finally moved the "iffy stuff" into one basket and gotten rid of it. Now they're talking up how well the scam worked.

Overcharging in the Balkans, political kickbacks in South Australia, ripping off defence forces in Iraq and all suchlike are now regarded as Not Halliburton's Problem. "It wasn't us, it was them!" cry Hal chiefs as they refuse to discuss KBR business.

In Australia, by the way, the name change went from Kinhill Australia to Halliburton Australia to Halliburton/KBR Australia to KBR Australia. See how different they are? Don't forget we're dealing with a wholly US owned subsidiary here... the Australia bit is just more window dressing.

‘Prince Harry will not be sent to Iraq as previously planned, with Britain's army chief insisting concerns for his safety had forced the decision.

The 22-year-old prince, third-in-line to the throne, was "very disappointed" by the announcement, a royal spokesman said, but he added that he would not quit the army.

General Sir Richard Dannatt acknowledged that Prince Harry would not be pleased with the decision, but said the risk that he and fellow troops would be targeted was too great.

JOE HOCKEY: No, of course not. Of course I couldn't say that. But you know what, you can't go into a contract, a perfectly valid contract, which two people entered into without duress, by agreement and say we are going to have this new government test apply and if there is anything wrong, we're going to have back pay. Now that is - that is probably unlawful, but obviously the logistics of that are phenomenal. Now, you have to take it at face value.
