Graham Boustred, a former deputy chairman of the mining group Anglo American, startled readers of the South African newspaper Business Day with his loathing for the company's chief executive Cynthia Carroll, saying: "This woman's hopeless. There's no morale." Unfortunately, that was just for hors d'oeuvres. "Do you know why it's difficult to find a female CEO?" the enlightened 84-year-old continued. "It's because most women are sexually frustrated. Men are not, because they can fall back on call girls, go to erectile dysfunction clinics. If you have a CEO who's sexually frustrated she can't act properly."

Q. I recently purchased foreign currency at a Post Office branch, using a Barclays Connect card. I bought €220 across the counter at my local Post Office, which cost me £203.44. When I received my bank statement, the amount debited was £207.50. Barclays told me that the additional amount was a 2 per cent commission charge for foreign currency purchase. It seems that I should have withdrawn cash from my Barclays account in the Post Office using my Connect card – for which no commission is charged – and then hand the cash back across the counter to purchase my foreign currency. CP, by email.
