    Default Standard & Poors in a Bad Mood

    Thought this one was priceless

    Will it start a "Ratings War"

    Moody's Investors Service has downgraded one of its biggest rivals McGraw Hill, which owns the world's largest rating agency Standard & Poor's, after the US government filed a lawsuit that seeks as much as $5bn (£3.2bn) in damages.

    * By that I mean most of the serious stuff and ya I know it still goes on.

    As I have the 'distinction' of having a thread which was not Zoo'd with only one reply. I'll give you a dig-out.
    I see Black Lion get there before me. I wonder was the photographer p-ssed when he took that photo? It's a bit lopsided.
