Wrong Taurus - move along, nothing to see here

Apparently the Economist (the original source) has it's geography slightly wrong. Taurus Group, domiciled in Christchurch, were not the company mentioned in the Volker Report. It was a Swiss oil trading company of a similar name. Very sincere apologies for any heart flutters in Christchurch.

Good Lord and we trust the Economist.
It's not as if it's Granny Herald or the Sunday Star-Times!
I have altered the Chch Press about this.

Just one other thing.
Would this be a case where bloggers act as a factchecker for the MSM?

You should delete the guts of the original post adolf and put the explanation there as well. Dont delete the post altogether, though, that is something Russel Brown would do.

I thought the names didn't match with the report I'd read but I asumed you'd done your homework.

Is there NO ONE I can trust to do my research for me left?????
