Barclays shares down 25 per cent

I have been a bit spaced out this week, and not really following the financial news too closely. I get like that sometimes. I have cosmic problems, things on my mind, that go way beyond mere money worries. Having said that, it has just been brought to my attention that shares in Barclays fell 25 per cent this afternoon. What the hell is going on?

I don't want to see Barclays end up in the shit - mainly because of my close friendship with Bob Diamond. I haven't got much time for John Varley, but Bob is a man of the future. He is a visionary - very much like myself.

Well, I will be speaking to Bob. And I am willing to help him. In the meantime, I suggest we all pray for Barclays.
