Barclays make a move - undercover operation exposed

Senior Barclays bank officials will not be at Chester this afternoon as Barclays Wealth have (rather huffily) withdrawn their branding from the British Masters showjumping competition after pictures were published by the British Show Jumping Association to re-vamp the stiffy old Raymond Brooks-Ward image of the sport.

No doubt they were back at the office penning their signatures to the fascinating declaration that has just appeared on the Bradford and Bungle website -

Notification of Major Interests in Shares

We were notified on 29 July that Barclays PLC have a notifiable interest in 5.00% of the total voting rights in Bradford & Bingley plc (30,880,308 shares) following transactions undertaken on 28 July 2008. The full names of the shareholders are:-

Barclays Bank Trust Company Ltd , Barclays Global Investors Ltd . Barclays Life Assurance Co Ltd , Barclays Private Bank Ltd , Barclays Private Bank and Trust Ltd , Barclays Stockbrokers Ltd , Gerrard Investment Management Ltd , Walbrook Trustees (Jersey) Ltd

So if Mr Tesco wants to buy them up, they had better move quickly.
