Extra interest charged by Moron Stanley (now Coldfish or whoever owns them today)
As you know Moron Stanley were sold to Coldfish last year. We’ve had an unhappy relationship with Coldfish before so took steps to clear the account. Last month we moved the outstanding balance to another provider and this months statement shows that. However, this months statement also shows almost £40 interest (on zero balance?).

Moron Stanley
A Morgan Stanley analyst just appeared on CNBC touting shares of Tesla Motors, symbol TSLA, causing about a 5% spike in the share price.  Seems he said that the cars being made by Tesla are currently playthings of the rich but could become more popular if gas prices continue to increase.
