    FOI? yes, especially when you are 'invited' to apply for an FOI for something, a regular occurance, I'm informed. Never underestimate the cute hoorism
    The query is because of the weirdness.

    Anyone had a go at guessing the redactions ?

    So, what is in it for our 'friends' in the States??? Because it is the bottom line.
    Is it possible that it is the Americans who have a vast share as senior bondholders.

    Has that point been mooted before?

    If so it would go some way to explaining alot.

    The Americans are not worried about our economy per se.

    They are worried about the effects of a default on the American businesses funnelling funds through our tax system.
