"Hello from Wonder Media Network. I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia Monica. Today's activist was a major proponent of prison reform in Britain. She's known as the Angel of prisons. Let's talk about Elizabeth Fry. Elizabeth Gurney was born in Norwich Norfolk in seventeen eighty to a wealthy quaker family. Her Father John was a successful banker and her mother Catherine was a member of the family that founded Barclays Bank which still operates is one of the largest banks in the world. Elizabeth was the odd one out amongst her siblings. She experienced mood swings and had difficulty learning which biographers attribute to her dyslexia. Elizabeth once said I was thought and called very stupid and obstinate I certainly did not like learning nor did I believe attend my lessons when Elizabeth was twelve years old her mother passed away and Elizabeth was left to care for her younger sisters and brothers. Eighteen hundred at the age of twenty. Elizabeth Mary Joseph Fry London banker and quaker together. They had many children most sources say eleven, five sons and six daughters though some sources suggest that had even more kids. Elizabeth was an observant quaker and frequently worshipped at the Friends Meeting House. It was there the she heard Williams savory preach about the importance of altruism and philanthropy. His words inspired Elizabeth to help those in need. In eighteen thirteen elizabeth visited newgate prison, which was notorious for its filthy state and its dismal treatment of its prisoners. Elizabeth was appalled to see such harsh conditions. Women and children were tightly packed in small spaces with little room to wash themselves or cleaned their clothes, and while many of the newgate prisoners had committed severe crimes, some of them had not. And others hadn't even received a trial. Elizabeth was determined to act the next day she returned to the prison with fresh loaves of bread and clean clothes, but she had sewn herself. She distributed them to the prisoners and encourage them to keep their cells clean and find ways to be hygienic in the oppressive environment. Elizabeth didn't come back to newgate until eighteen sixteen due to financial difficulties within her family. But upon her return, she dove back into the Work Elizabeth educated the children of Newgate who were imprisoned with their parents teaching them practical skills like reading and selling. In eighteen seventeen, Elizabeth founded the Association for the improvement of female prisoners along with twelve other women she worked to advance prison reform and to provide female prisoners with education and tools for employment Elizabeth fought for the idea that prison should be based round rehabilitation rather than punishment she wrote it must indeed be acknowledged that many of our own penal provisions as they produced no effect appear to have no other end the punishment of the guilty. Eighteen nineteen Elizabeth wrote prisons and Scotland in the north of England and encouraged her society friends to visit newgate themselves. At. That time Britain was in the practice of sending prisoners to penal colonies in. North. America Australia and India. At newgate. Prisoners en route to be transferred to convict ships, rebound by chains and unable to move around and tiny carts people in the streets pelted them with garbage. Elizabeth convinced the governor of new gate to carry the women enclosed carriages rather than open ones and to ensure that all the women and children had enough food to eat on their voyage. Elizabeth also gave the prisoner sewing tools, bibles and other necessities to accompany them on their long journeys. With the help of her efforts, the act of transporting criminals so far away lands was prohibited in eighteen, thirty seven. Prior to that change in policy Elizabeth visited every convict ship bound for Australia for more than twenty five years. Throughout the eighteen twenties, Elizabeth inspected prison conditions and continued to advocate for the rights of prisoners. She presented her findings to the House of Commons committee in doing. So she became the first woman to present evidence to parliament. Elizabeth's ideas influenced the eighteen twenty three jails act which introduced a series of prison

Makeover: Oil Giant BP Promises to Cut Oil Production, Invest in Renewables
"Somebody had to go I. It's no surprise that Covid Nineteen Delta Draconian blow to the oil and gas industry stay at home orders and line shutdowns of dramatically reduced the need for oil and gas prices and earnings plunged well. Now at least one giant oil company says demand for fossil fuels will never be the same again and it's taking steps not just to pivot, but to make itself over entirely. That business is BP the london-based behemoth last week, the one, hundred, ten year, old company announced a seventeen billion dollar quarterly loss and multibillion dollar writedown of its assets. But what generated headlines was its announcement that over the next decade, it intends to discard its identity as a fossil fuel business. Instead, it'll invest heavily in a wide variety of renewable energy technologies on its way to achieving net zero emissions by twenty fifty. Specifically bb says it will cut oil and gas production by forty percent over the next decade. At the same time, it plans to put ten times as much money into renewable energy investments as it currently does with a goal of investing five billion dollars a year by twenty thirty bio-energy hydrogen, carbon, capture and storage investments in electric vehicle charging stations are all said to be on the menu as our wind and solar. From. A business perspective the move does make some sense BP expects demand for oil to fall between fifty and seventy five percent over the next thirty years as the world attempts to slow global warming. In June BP officials acknowledged that the pain caused to the oil business by the pandemic isn't temporary. It's permanent. They say in a statement, they said covid nineteen would accelerate an existing transition to a lower carbon economy as country seek to quote, build back better meaning in ways less harmful to the environment. The shift is taking a toll on BP's employees. The company announced in June that it plans to lay off ten thousand people. BP's dismal second quarter didn't seem to faze investors instead they embrace the company's new renewable energy shift its share price leapt seven percent on the news stuart joyner an analyst at the market research firm redburn remarked that the move was major positive, thoughtful, and largely unexpected the New York Times reported. Unexpected too many perhaps, but close observers of the company may not have been that surprised. BP has spent the last decade clawing back from its disastrous deepwater horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. For obvious reasons, the company hasn't exactly been a darling of environmentalists, but quickly after becoming CEO in February Bernard Looney made a pledge for BP to achieve net zero emissions by twenty fifty it was the first of giant global oil companies to do so. At the time both socially conscious and traditional investors applauded BP's pledge Andrew Logan and oil and gas director at series a climate change advocacy organization said EP was setting a new standard for leadership in the oil industry CNN reported and Barclays analysts called the plan both fundamental and radical. Last week. Looney. said in a statement quote. This coming decade is critical for the world in the fight against climate change and to drive the necessary change in global energy systems will require action from everyone but so far oil giants. Exxon and Chevron have not followed suit indeed mobile continues to expand oil exploration and production around the world despite its own sharp drop in earnings. The Washington Post reported BP has attempted and failed at other eco, friendly initiatives over the years and BP will continue to invest in and make most of its money from fossil fuels for at least another five years. Still observers agree that this is the company's most transformative move yet, and the realities of business may give BP's ecoconscious strategy more momentum than has existed in the past. As reporter Steven muffs wrote in. The Washington Post for. BP. Is trying to get ahead of what climate change might forced the industry to do. Anyway.

It's still kind of fight for Barclay There aren't a lot of trainers at You know is one three legs of the triple crown in recent years. Yeah and you know you guys together. Seventeen years apart, and with New York breads and I know that's the. The mantra over attack a Toga. You guys support that program as well as anyone. Well I was pretty fascinated to learn that it was one hundred thirty eight years since the new. York breaded, won the. Belmont stakes now I know a lot of people are going to say well, then really count you know at you know. It wasn't a mile and a half and Yada, Yada but. In my mind, anybody who watched that race, who questions who would have won that race? It has been a mile and a half. I think the outcome would have been exactly the same as it was at amendment eight. And, Barkley had gone on record is before the race saying you know I would have liked a mile and a half of the source, and he's a horse again. New York Brad and that's what you guys do, you? You've been high on this horse from day one. Well. I watched them train at Saratoga. I mean you're up there and I'd go over at six o'clock in the morning 'cause. That was a time of day that Berkeley landed of track. It was almost darker. She got near the end of the need of what's dark. And not only did he. You know have a good works, and you know work quickly, not crazy fast, but you know good works. But the way he galloped out, I mean they couldn't pull him up. He goes around the second turn. After you know going, pass the finish line and writers just added tremendously difficult time pulling them up junior. Alvarado was riding. Mine is is raised back then, and when I saw that we went into a first range of six and a half furlong maiden mates for New York. Badge I really had a lot of confidence and He's lived up to it so one little bump in a road when he got stuck down inside and the worst part of the race track and Kentucky Jockey Club At. The end of November other than that He really has been flawless. Yeah. That's lobby. Track back in November. He's just been He's been impeccable. The rest of the way the covid nineteen outbreak of course forced post moment of the Kentucky Derby the preakness to. The. Bom obviously the biggest change with the Belmont was not only the two weeks, but the distance. You've mentioned the ASTERISK. We'll get to that in a minute You guys pretty much. And gals I don't want to offend anybody in Saratoga those thirty-five parts of this. Is that accurate? Seven and funny is that I was that six or seventy? You guys and funny side. We had ten ten. Okay, okay only. The same folks lieutenant. And I the only holdovers class. You guys Gus Williams. He passed away several years ago as dead one of our other great partners Dave Man but Ruined I gave remaining to. Stay with it and never in the world expecting that we would get the kind of horse that we've gotten here with the law. And this was an important race for you to win Jack Not that you don't want to win. The Derby again or the preakness again, but the Belmont stakes with your dedication to new. York, Brad's and New York, and let's face it. you know in a game where horses changed hands an awful lot. You and Barclay have been together two decades at this point. This was a very important race for you guys to to tick the box on. It was, and now he's got one more coming up in my hometown Saratoga Springs I've lived thirty five years I know Barkley wants to win it badly as do I and. Really if we can you know, check this box. would include the champagne, which is the the most important two year old race. The Belmont stakes obviously being biggest Belmont. Race and We get the travers at Saratoga. That's quite a triple. And that's pretty remarkable. When you consider you know you started this twenty years ago. As pretty much. Just some friends getting together and buying some horses. We had six guys and Sackett Cyber. I find the eastern end of Lake Ontario I went to high school. We were having our usual. Memorial Day weekend, bearing barbecue, and my wife and I would go up there and visit and I had been in the harness. Business Standard Bread business I guess for about a dozen years and got out. In in ninety four. And somebody up there said well. Why don't we buy a thoroughbred and I said you know figuring I've never gonNA hear anything about it again. I said okay. I said you know, let's each put in five thousand dollars. I knew Tim Kelly at that point who's a trainer and works at is never now. so I got a hold of me and he found this a New York Brad for twenty two thousand dollars. We named him the second sex after the six of us. From Sackett Cyber and came up with the name sack Toga stable after sack I Saratoga and made ourselves Maroon and gray, which are high school college. So. That's how it all started.
Airline Cash Flow
"All right our first story comes in from our Listener Linda. This is from one mile at a time surprising statistics about mileage, plus about united, mileage plus. In, we see that united has announced financing in the amount of five billion dollars secured through the airlines loyalty program. This is part of their to have seventeen billion dollars in liquidity by the end of September. Separately CNN reports that that's three times the cash. They normally have on hint. Of course all the airlines are. Struggling essentially with their cash flow situations and they they need to have. Cash on hand united is amongst them of course and It's it's an interesting strategy to take their mileage plus program and leverage off some financing based on that and the findings. He's GonNa come through Goldman Sachs Barclays. And Morgan Stanley and united will have seven years to repay that. These affinity programs like mileage plus our big business for the airlines united estimates that the value of their mileage plus program. If it was a standalone business, would be twenty billion dollars, so there's a lot of. A lot of revenue that changes hands here. We need Dan back as guest to explain all this 'cause. I tried to read how they mortgaged their frequent flyer program to raise five billion in my head started to hurt. Well I'm just thinking I I'm GonNa. Leave the show early right now because I'm GonNa, go start the airplane, Geeks, mileage plus program. I mean there's this is a twenty billion dollar business. We're wasting our time here, guys. I know it's It's pretty amazing so. The, the partners United Partners Pay United to award miles to their own customers, so says things like credit, cards and hotels when you earn united miles or mileage plus miles by reserving at a hotel or using a credit card. United gets a piece of that action and it adds up to quite a lot. So that large part of it comes from selling miles to other airline programs. I didn't see them call out specifically income from credit cards for example card I use most often still is the united mileage plus a credit card. I would imagine they must be earning. Some money from chaser manages that card. Even My my Hilton Program have the option the option of taking my awards, my my points, basically that I earned from staying at Hilton, properties and I, either get Hilton points which I can redeem for rooms, or I can get united, miles well Hilton. Kick something that United Four that for Hilton. There's value because it's you know. It's a service can offer its customers. If you look at the one mile at a time website. It gets down to break some of the stuff down. Like seventy one percent of the cat is offer twenty, one, thousand, nine hundred. Seventy one percent of the cash flow is from sales miles purchased by third party partners. But then when you look at how it was redeemed, ninety seven percent is redeemed by. using it on united. Right for travel, in yeah, only three percent of those milder redeemed for non travel rewards, it does make you start to wonder if the the planes are just kind of you know aside business. Instead they're making money off of mileage plus baggage fees. You wonder at some point Could this be one of these businesses where you know you give away the the razors for free, and you're making it all on selling razor blades. Absolutely I am particularly these days, but even you know even without the huge drop in air traffic is the result of the pandemic. Even before that the aircraft, just the promotional item Eb. Senses Yeah and in some in some way, so it's it's a really interesting business. It's not always what you What you think we also see here that you united his made an SEC filing an aide filing in in that filing. We learn a little bit more about the program. that united mileage. Plus program has over a hundred million members. And that fifty percent of United's flight revenue comes from mileage plus members. Which is that's? That's pretty high. Also the mileage plus program generated five point three billion in cash flow from sales in two thousand nineteen, and that's roughly twelve percent of United's overall revenue. So, Oh, another interesting The number here is it. The mileage plus program generated one point eight billion dollars in Eba, DA, which represents about twenty six percent of their total adjusted ebitda. That's. earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization. So that's that's sort of a A. Year of earnings from an operating standpoint, twenty six percent of united's basically operating earnings from this mileage plus

"barclays" Discussed on FT Banking Weekly
"Take a shot data themself. That's fine with us. Anything would say is the ending given a chance to do that. We're expecting to see results some of the numbers that we see not encouraging. And so we'll give it a quarter or two and see what happens we have a really wanted to make a point. But while this has been going on stocks down from two six two one six and the investment Bank might be part of it. But the only thing we're interested in is finally getting the value that's in Barclays beliefs. And the current strategy hasn't done it strategies the chain and the investment banks probably part of that. What do you say to those provided enough of a detailed of stress? If we were on the board of directors. We give them as much information as they need. I don't think that a public is place to talk about de sales strategy, but we talked to participate and they've got an opportunity to go fix it. So I think. So where does that leave everything David is Barclays off the hook or only a short short-lived reprieve for Nigel Higgins and just daily the chief executive, well, it's kind of hard to overstate the feeling of triumph inside Barclays at the moment. They really are incredibly confident he won fewer votes than even the most pessimistic predictions. However, Mr. Bramson thinks that this is sort of temporary problem for him. And it all centers on the fact that Nigel Higgins made a personal plea to other shareholders, the went down very, well, which was basically give me a shot to fix it. I Mr. Bramson very negative on Mr. Higgins's chances of managing to fix it. And so thinks a couple of quarters let it die down that needs to Higgins fail. If you like and then he'll be back with a vengeance. And I guess a share price move up all down will be a pretty strong. Oxy for who's winning on this? We'll keep it closely under review. Thanks very much at David. But I'm going to stay with you for our second topic. I look at Goldman Sachs where we carried a story on Monday up fat, the banks Marcus online savings Bank product in the UK. Obviously also exists in the US as well. And there have been delays to the rollout plan of Marcus in Europe. Yes. So the F T understood that Marcus would be launching in Germany this year and not has been delayed where told there are two primary reasons the first is the delay to Brexit. So Goldman is setting up a new entity in Germany, so that it can continue to service clients in euro-zone off the Brexit, and it had planned to take deposits through its Marcus brand in Germany in part to fund that entity..

"But I think in this instance, Barclay's is of the opinion that the more pressing concern is the activist investor that is calling for the investment Bank to improve its returns or scale back, and it can't just keep on going quarters quarter with a stubbornly high cost to income ratio and pay is the main factor in that high cost income ratio. Who knows it just might trigger a revolution in investment banker pay we'll keep tabs on that. Thanks, david. Let's move on to a second topic of the day. And I'm delighted say Leo Lewis is joining us from Tokyo mirror. The giant Japanese. Brokerage has been losing business home because of. A stagnant economy and also on the world stage as the investment banking market goes into retrenchment, cookie. Nagai the chief executive has spoken to Leo Lewis. The FTC Tokyo correspondent and line baba the F FT's editor who was that on the trip. So Lear thanks very much for joining us. Let's first of all here. A couple of key things that Mr. Nagai had to say to us, and I think the questions in this case posed by Lionel baba, the first clip is what he said in response to questions about Brexit. How does it take me numerals? Immaterial huge bucked. Tell me. Allegiance, plough more our latest numbers formulated based upon various assumptions, including young certainty around rate, which bucket this. Of course, it is not the single factor. But as liaison is with our we have placed the global wholesale have in your, but will have to make fundamental change through that structure a He little. had a little toys aside from the timing of Briggs. And whether it's going to be heartbreak to the Greg's it the rations around the wholesale business remained. We and other same time seems possible that it's going to take long for that station to normalize. So this time we see no reason for us to keep that kind of significant presence over there. Next mystic Nagai talked about the job cuts. The would inevitably come. I'm gonna hit the go directly focus on the hit countless duck Shen. But as a result of initiatives will result without sense of headcount city such though that's not our immediate directing tension. No, of course. But will you relocate some of these? Issue. What is? Heart of the pace network rose will be relocated. Because we have made assumption that we will not be able to keep using the single passed on to gain access to the continental Europe. But assumption is we will be able to use that passport any longer. So we have set up a holding company in Europe specifically in Frankfurt, and we are in the process of moving coast Branford base entity. So that we'll be able to avoid the disruptive in even in the case of other Brexit, so Leo how negative is the vibe at Nemea. This all sounds pretty bleak stuff it does. And I think deliberately so now guy sign is city. What thousands? I think he's using it there in Japanese sense of a very large number there about two thousand people in London, the cut will be pretty severe. But the number that we're hearing on background from sources at number of both in London and Tokyo. Oh is around three hundred fifty in. What will be the first of a number of phases of cut? So they all getting quite serious about this numeric is in a lot of trouble as a number of its rivals across the industry. But numerous big problem relates a lot to the Japanese management system, and Mr. Nagai himself admitted that and I think the what he's trying to do is to make sure that everyone knows internally that this is a crisis and that if it doesn't act now and slaves some sacred cows that need to be in a permanent spiral downwards. And that's why you get these big numbers with the suggested cuts of billion dollars of cost savings that he's recently proposed. And that's the theme that he was sending in this interview. He was really trying to I think share the sense that they recognized that they are in serious trouble. And of course, the context here is not only the woes as you said that plenty of other banks around the world facing in terms of the investment Bank..

"Japanese financial correspondent, and our guest clip. This week comes from an interview with Koji Nagai who is the chief executive of Japan the mirror. I today we'll be looking at Barclays Bank as it cuts bonuses for staff. Secondly, look at that NoMura story and the plans that Amir has to slash its representation in London and finally revelead. Is it coming of age David I of that barky story, which you in our colleague, Steven Morris broke this morning. A big cuts to Barclays bankers bonuses. Yes. So a double digit cut too. The rate of Krivel in the first quarter. Now, what does that mean? Well, bonuses are paid annually to investment bankers, but they accrue throughout the year and Barclays has had policies 2016 that has allowed it to instantly pull the lever if revenues fall investment banks that bonuses should fall by roughly the same amount as revenues falling. But that hasn't happened. Traditionally, and it certainly didn't happen under the previous head of the investment Bank. Tim throws be who successfully resisted attempts to pull that costly ver he's gone ousted recently and replaced in fact by the group chief executive Jeff Staley, and what we're hearing is the Bank is going to be much more disciplined about pulling that lever. And indeed it has to be because it has at Bramson. The activist investor breathing down its neck calling for it to scale the investment Bank down and amid an environment of falling revenues across the industry. The. Anything that has to do is to cut costs now investment bankers. Bonuses are pretty anachronistic in the current age outlay, given how much prophets of full in in investment banking to keep those levels of pay so high as Oviously been ripe for reform, but a lot of banks of held off from doing that fearful that they would lose their best staff two rivals. What do you think is gonna happen? As a result of this wise Bach is confident it not release as best staff, I suppose, it depends. Who you believe this is always the argument that has been posited, which is cut people's pay than they can go out where the question, I suppose one my ask is where are they going to go is not a huge amount of joy happening in investment banking in Europe at the moment sock. Journeys cutting jobs deutscher is very sick. Indeed. So where do these people go, and I suppose Barclays is taking the risk that people will stick with it. I suppose what stuff might say as well Americans. Doing pretty well, they might be hiring. And of course, the sectors outside of banking in the finance industry. Hedge fund and private equity sectors, which are still thriving. Yeah. I mean, I think you know, you can go to private equity you can go to the shadow banking world. If you like you can go and work for an American rival..

"And yes, the the FTC is reporting this, and it's it's notable for a number of reasons one as you pointed out, this is tiger global. This is a multibillion dollar New York. Hedge fund. It is a so-called tiger cub. It's a spin off of the fame Julian Robertson, Julian Robertson tiger fund, which is very well known very high profile, and these these smaller hedge funds have similar investment strategy and considered very noteworthy. And yes, they've they've sold their entire stake. They began last year they finished selling their stake. They had. Been top ten investor in in Barclays, and they were a supporter of Barclays CEO Jeff Staley. And so the backdrop here is that Barclay's stock prices just simply been in the gutter its share price was close to two hundred forty Pence in two thousand seventeen and now it's more like more like one sixty Staley the CEO Barclays had been focusing on its UK retail operation and its US led investment Bank. But obviously this hasn't this hasn't been a winning strategy in the stock market has this anything to do with bricks. The F T article didn't get into that you, you know, it's hard to separate out. You can't ignore Brexit. Obviously in this underscores a couple of things one European banks are still struggling to compete with their with large American rivals. Barclays should have been in a position to benefit from US tax cuts because it still has the the American investment Bank. That's clearly done little for its share price and to your point about Brexit. I mean, Bank share prices tend to reflect the economic environment where they where they operate. And so it's you just can't you can't disentangle the Barclay share price from from the broader economic stance in the UK, and what people are expecting what investors are expecting in the coming years one person quote in the T said, this shouldn't be construed as a loss of confidence in Staley. Your may have just found better opportunities. Elsewhere. But to me that's kind of like saying, well they lost faith in Staley because they found opportunities. Elsewhere. Interesting. And of course, Brexit must impact on the next story. We're gonna look at which is British businesses suffering from recruitment. If of course, if we have people from the EU that is going to be a major issue. Yes..

"And then after that, obviously wants the persecution cases finished the defense case will begin and again that could last some time so he could be six months with his trial. Just one final thing than Jane us. He as I said you covering the banks at the time, the Qatari investors that came in with their multibillion, bailout full Barclays, what was in it for them really setting aside, the alleged payments of inducements, why did they invest in Barclays? And of course, they invested in quite a few banks right across Europe at the time. Yeah. I mean, I think the trials hood some evidence that Barclays was an attractive proposition for the Qataris. But obviously, the Qataris are not part of the case nobody from the kettle investments investment thority is giving evidence in the trial. And you've got to basically remember that the Qataris with the purchases here, they didn't have the disclosure abbreviations that Barclays had dinner they're not on trial here. But obviously, they saw the Bank has a attractive proposition in this. Two thousand and eight banking crisis. And I think it is to be remembered the at she sunny. This was true just before the trial started when I checked it costs remain. Barclays lotta shareholder. They've been through ups and downs of a sin. Suddenly just like that positions in other banks in Europe, not least torture Bank. But. That is another story has we have reports many times people on thank you both very much.

"But also is pretty clear that certainly front of mind for many of those involved was the fact that they probably wouldn't be able to get that multi-million-pound bonuses. I mean for this fundraising alone. Russia Jenkins was paid to twenty five million pound bonus. And indeed the jury's heart a memo demanding payments to that effect. I mean, I think one of the things that this case has done is really lift the lid on the frenetic deal making that happened and just the down to the minute negotiations that had to happen in order for Barclays to get this away and stay out of the hands of UK government control. Of course at the time. It was Hales is a great success. When robot Scotland walls being bailed out in an emergency rescue by the British government, h boss was falling over Lloyds, very soon. After as Jane, you covered at the time as banking correspondent was bailed out as. Well, and of course, Barclays looked like he's got the capital at that it needed without any downside, albeit a rather expensive but have capital, but it's rather coming home to roost now. Absolutely enemy today. We heard the prosecution alleged the, you know, the prospect of UK government bailout was very unattractive ball lease. Because it would mean it limited the flexibility of the Bank. But it also meant some of the people talk about because would have to leave, you know, some of the top executives would have to leave as a result of taking tax payer money and also levels of remuneration would be attacked at Barclays, and as I say, we've heard this kind of memo today from Roger Jenkins who was basically sort of saying that he ought to be paid a bonus as a result of his attracting Qatari capital and ensuring that Baucus didn't have to take tax payer money. I mean, he sought said, you know, he basically saved the Bank, and he deserves the money to save our asses and jobs, eloquent, Carolina, explained one thing. Why is it these four individuals and not any others on indeed, not the Bank itself that is on trial you, yes. We obviously have to be a little bit careful in what we say. Well, they're alive proceedings. But one thing we are positively allowed to report is that previous SFO charges against Barclays the corporate with scrubbed late last year in quite a blow to the case. And particularly the Bank could been charged with as well as frauds the same as the human defendants as we call them also in relation to a three billion dollar loan that it gave to Qatar just as the second fundraising was closing. So those parts of the surveys case are no longer part of the trial. So Jane, where does it go from here as I said, I think the jury has been told to expect this to run to six months where clearly only in the first few days. What are we going to hear next, and what are you braced for basically the opening is light to finish this week sometime? And then I think we getting into witnesses. So we haven't got to witness list yet or an order of witnesses. But we know certain individuals are going to give evidence including Marcus ages who is chairman of Barclays at the time. So what he says? Well, obviously be very interesting..
