Goodbye Call Centres .....

HSBC are moving 4,000 jobs to the Far East. Service jobs seem to be chasing manufacturing offshore. Losing your job ? Turn misfortune to good account and join a booming industry - counselling. You can start with your (ex)colleagues.

It does make one wonder where it will all end. David Farrar wonders too - pointing out that of the 25 top earners in Scotland, 11 are footballers or managers. Where have all the entrepreneurs gone ?

And Camilla Cavendish wonders aloud in the Times "How many bureaucrats do you need to start an enterprise revolution?", following the news that the government now employs 354,000 more people than it did five years ago.
