Kervet : First class post. As an investor in CNA I thank you for your apposite reminders. Interims should provide a clearer picture. Still see the share price as near to the 90 to 100p rang by financial year end ...particularly if further disposals come to fruition and the company continues to diversify into forward looking opportunities.

Oh I know the likes of me are bottom if the food chain, but I think this was a pragmatic and realistic statement of events that shows a real world view so I see this a a postive. I know I am bias because I am invested but I generally keep my political views to myself and try and take a level non emotion view of an investment. My issue is when posters who are negative, and one wonders if they are invested, repost negative media stories that only focus on part of the story. As we know bad news sells and the Guardian, which is now so left its own readers read the morning star to get a more balanced view, posts negtive news about capital and companies. If they understood how a free market society works and the rights of the individual they may change their attitude but I think the lessons of Animal Farm or The Road to Serfdom haven't filtered down yet.

Not blaming the Guardian for how a company was managed, have issues with the focus on the bad news of companies that used to be state run and the constant left wing views. Will they run the fiasco of the reshuffle? Will they ask the hard questions of why the party that was created to support the unions and labour is shunned by the working class. Or will it be more of Boris the spiders carpets and wallpapers or how great the snp is?

The continued focus on the negative. The biased reporting. The Marxist slant on businesses. Need I go on.

THE GUARDIAN British Gas owner Centrica warns financial outlook is uncertain Energy supplier’s parent company tells investors it has faced difficult start to the year amid pandemic Jillian Ambrose Mon 10 May 2021 11.40 BST Last modified on Mon 10 May 2021 11.50 BST The owner of British Gas has warned investors it has faced a difficult start to the year, weeks after sacking hundreds of its engineers through a controversial fire and rehire scheme to help turn the business around. Centrica told its shareholders its financial outlook for the year was uncertain after the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic continued to drag on the business, which has struggled in recent years due to rising competition in the energy market. In the first quarter of this year, demand for electricity was 15% lower than the year before among the company’s business customers, the company said in a trading update ahead of its annual shareholder meeting. Home boiler repairs and installations were 11% lower than the same time last year because non-essential home service visits were postponed to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. The slump in home energy services was also due to a long-running series of strikes by thousands of its engineers in response to the company’s plan to toughen its employment contracts in an effort to boost productivity and become more competitive. Under the fire and rehire plans, most of Centrica’s 20,000 staff were told to accept the new conditions, which would increase working hours for its engineers, or lose their jobs. The company confirmed that 460 engineers were dismissed last month, as a result of what the GMB trade union has called “a dirty, bullying tactic”. A survey by the union found that more than three-quarters of the public believe that fire and rehire schemes should be made illegal. Business email signup Chris O’Shea, who became Centrica chief executive last year, said his plans to modernise the company remained on track and “the difficult, but necessary process to move colleagues on to new terms and conditions is now complete”. “We are pleased that 98% of UK colleagues have accepted the new contracts which will enable us to better serve the needs of our customers. Although the external environment remains uncertain, our tight focus on cash and on fixing the basics across the group leaves us well placed as we continue the turnaround of our company,” O’Shea said. O’Shea hopes to save £100m in operational costs this year as part of a plan to stem the steady decline of the FTSE 250 energy company in recent years. British Gas has lost about 3 million household energy customers in the last decade following an influx of successful new energy startups. Centrica crashed out of the FTSE 100 after losing more than 70% of its market value in the last five years.

Upgrades, I think not, but more news on corporate re-structuring maybe at the AGM, I want to hear about intentions for Spirit, it is possible they have already received unsolicited offers.

I think O’Shea is downplaying the facts, we have just had a near four month lockdown, and it has been tough with the disputes, etc over contracts. However this is work in progress, the company is far stronger with an improved balance sheet, smaller but financially stronger. Could it even be a takeover target at this point!

Great update onwards and upwards. I was hoping for the Divi re-instated ah well.
