Deutsche Bank has been heavily in the headlines in the past 24 hours or so as many figures in the City and far beyond are worried about its financial health. Some say the bank will have to call on German State-aid. Some say they will have to have a fire sale of assets. Deutsche as I have found myself have had some weird ways of doing things and some in the know, that I know say they still do. The way they get rid of people for example is the stuff of folklore and legend, especially, so they tell me in the London offices. However it is this one headline that caught my eye especially. “You Can’t Compare Deutsche Bank To Lehman” Actually, you can and you cannot. This worse than Lehman, far worse baecuse it means that if Deutsche goes down then the very big lessons from Lehman have not been learned by anyone. Remember Lehman were too big to fail. The position as Deutsche bank looks terrible, I think it is. Some commentators say they can pull out if it. I think its passed that point now and we shall have to see what happens. It is sad that yet another large prganisation and its people have taken the “we are too big to fail approach”. This is sad, becuase it means no one has learnt ffrom the last financial crisis. This is the most worrying point here. Individuals have not learned the lessons and broought those into the corporate culture. Whatever happens the run up to christmas will be a very intersting one for thoose who are observing Deutsche Bank. I do wonder how long it will take though for their intternal marketing spin doctors to blame this on ubiquitous “Brexit”!

The Doctor Who Gave Up Drugs is a documentary series on the BBC in England. In the programme a doctor Called Chris Van Tulleken takes over a part of a doctors surgery in Chingford, North East London and offers drug free medical treatment. I found him and his first episode a little scary. In this episode he prescribed a James Bond DVD instead of antibiotics! for the love of Mary! I am disabled I suffer from severe osteo arthritis, menieres disease and a few other things, his methods will never work for me and thats a fact! I tuned in to the second episode with an open mind. I was shocked by the way the goaded a young woman with depression on a Skype chat with psycho clap trap. This got me angry. The way he then attempted to counsel a woman who suffers from chronic pain and his quite frankly belittling and patronising attitude in both episodes finally got my rage. He in my opinion wasn’t bordering on dangerous he was openly dangerous. Chris Van Tulleken says he is a doctor and a scientist. Who ever employs Chris should really consider Chris’ P45. I would also consider sending the chaps in white coats round to visit him. Mr Chris Van tulleken you are dangerous individual. Let us now move onto the doctors surgery in Chingford. Let us be clear here. Allowing Chris into your surgery with his dangerous ideas were neither your best decision nor your finest hour. I hope that in time that you rebuild the patient trust that you must have lost by agreeing to invite Chris into your professional environment. Let us lastly turn to the BBC. You can the most popular car show by over castigating a presenter who punched someone. You then show this dangerous clap trap, you clearly only want to annoy TV licence payers. On that note can you refund me my licence fee please as you have clearly shown me that you cannot be trusted to spend my hard earned money responsibly by broadcasting bollocks like this.
I am going to experiment with weekly blog updates for a few weeks.
Many of you will know I was at Autumn Fair at the other week and I thought that it was a more subdued event than usual, certainly I shall expect a more concerted buzz at Spring Fair 2017. I hhad to cut short a visit to Ireland following the fair on health grounds which is a pity, this however will be rescheduled. I released the October edition of The P2 List yesterday. I have taken on some new deals here and have just been instructed on a budget hotel for sale. I have also been approached by a pub company to work with them on freehold and leasehold sites. Lastly on work news I have had a very interestiing conversation with an Austrailian food franchise that is considering the UK. I will start work on the Christmas and New Year edition of The P2 List shortly.
On personal notes, I am getting really sick of The hype surrounding The Great Britsh Bake Off and I am hating my new medication 🙁 A brief podcast recorded by me earlier today is attached to this post.
