Q. I had nearly £22,000 in an ISA, paying 3 per cent with the Halifax. This came to the end of its one-year fixed term in June and reverted to 0.5 per cent. I opened a new ISA with the Halifax, with an interest rate of 2.6 per cent. I sent a transfer request to put the original ISA into the new ISA Direct Reward. After a month, the money was still in the old ISA, running at 0.5 per cent, so I went into a branch and transferred it. I was assured that this had happened. But when I checked my ISA online six weeks later, I found the money had been transferred instead into a Liquid Gold account paying a paltry 0.05 per cent. How can they change my ISA into a tax-paying account anyhow? I have complained, but heard nothing. PE, Suffolk

During my two weeks' absence – attending a granddaughter's wedding in Hungary – hopes have mounted that at least some of the old takeover momentum is returning. But with share turnover remaining in the doldrums, there has been little evidence of increased investor excitement. Still, it's been a fairly busy time for five constituents (and a former member) of the no pain, no gain portfolio. Pride of place must go to Mears, the support services group, which justified its comments that it had not experienced the difficulties that have so severely damaged its arch rival, Connaught.

CNBC, the American business channel, seems to have a rather antiquated view of the way we British folk speak to each other. It ran a poll of viewers over the weekend, asking whether they thought the increasingly angry backlash from certain parts of this country over the White House's treatment of BP was wrong. The options were "Yes, stiff upper lip, chaps," or "No, right to be miffed". Even when BP was still trading as British Petroleum, we didn't talk like that.
