Quote of the Day

HSBC lines up deal to sell Docklands headquarters 
(Independent)

Why is this headline the Quote of the Day?  Because I accidentally tweeted that HSBC was relocating their HQ to HK last week when they announced that Michael Geoghegan, their CEO, was moving office from London to Hong Kong.  With this additional news, don't be surprised if they do relocate some time in the future.  After all, they have said as much a year ago, just before the crisis hit.
