Am I surprised, no. Am I disgusted, yes. Yet another appalling indictment of Phoney Tony Bliar's government. British, U.S. kids worst off in industrial world, UN says http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20070214.wunkids0214/BNStory/International/home The article then goes on to say that the Dutch are the best off, followed by the Swedish. The criteria compared are, amongst others, happiness, promiscuity, substance abuse, ecucation, literacy. The British government immediately criticized the report, saying it used data that were out of date. there's a surprise. They've never done anything wrong. Good for Holland.
So, McLaren was fined. But 100 Million?? Does that sound excessive to you?! Not to mention being out of this season's competition. Just for using confidential information on their competitor? I think this fine is completely out of proportion. People do the most terrible things and get a slap on the hand. BA and Virgin rip us off with "fuel charges" one tells on the other and BA got fined, Virgin got off (also not the fairest thing ever, but never mind). In the case of McLaren vs Ferrari, no consumers were involved or ripped off and to me this fine is just too much! Any other opinions out there?
