HSBC just announced (internally) a 10% blanket redundancy round in the London Office. If the yanks don't pull their finger out soon there will be nothing left to consult on....

bigfourbanker to Anon (#1)

that's a share price impacting number, and so a pretty serious assertion - are you sure of your source?

So it looks like your sources were right. Quite a big chunk out of the London office.

Taxman to anon (#5)

Dear grad, if your in India then dont worry. If your in the uk then the following has happened:

1. Automobiles - Cheaper abroad

2. Science - Let the french do it

3. Technology - Thats Indian

4. Banking - oo we will keep that

5. What can we do? sell houses to each other?

6. Oh boollcks no good jobs left

7. No need for consultants here

8. Go learn a science

9. Now consulting moves into new fuels etc

10. No your qualifications mean nothing

11. Yes India/France have qualified consultants

12. Who will buy your house?

Its happened/been happening since the late 1980's. we all knew it would lead to this.

Cynic to Taxman (#6)

I'm quite pleased that it's happened. Obviously it's terrible for those who have lost their jobs etc but frankly it's about time this country focused on creating stuff of value rather than basically suckering us all into an over-hyped Ponzi scheme.
