Interest rates tumbling - 3 month interbank falls from 13% last Monday to 123/8 today

Saw Michael Beesley - who tells me that economists were very pleased with my rubbishing of the Telecom Cttee Paper but critical issue is multiple use of BT network

Terry [Terry Burns] + Ferdy [Ferdinand Mount] - talked about control of public spending

Talked to U. of Southern Mississippi Students
