P&O disposal plan to raise pounds 2bn

P&O YESTERDAY surprised the City with plans to raise over pounds 2bn from the disposal of its construction, property, exhibitions and containers divisions in order to focus on its cruises, ferries and ports businesses.

Outlook: P&O clear-out

THREE YEARS ago that old sea-dog Lord Sterling looked to be dead in the water. P&O was a ragbag of lumpy, underperforming businesses that seemed destined either for an ignominious Hanson-style break-up or oblivion at the hands of a bigger, stronger suitor.

I studied viola at music college and went on to work with the City of London Festival as PA to the Classical Music Director, but left when another director went to run the Poetry Society and asked me if I would come with him.

It's a well-known factoid (looks like a fact, smells like a fact, isn't true) that people are resistant to change - a line wheeled out regularly by the BBC when announcing schedule changes. Of course, if resistance to change were so firmly rooted in human nature, then we'd still be hanging around the Olduvai Gorge sneering at this trendy stone-tool rubbish and pining for the good old days, when people lived in trees and kids showed some respect.

What did you think of chapter 3?
