    Britons (one, at least) evidently knew what was going on before the first diary was posted.

    He (Brit friend) manages the UK office of the social enterprise we run in UK and Ukraine.  We were (and are) concerned about this:
    http://www.trafigurafoundation.com/...

    That's why he was so concerned about and already tracking the Guardian story.  Trafigura is preparing to move into the social enterprise sphere, God forbid.

    SE is an alternate economics system, still based on capitalism but with financial, social, and environmental bottom lines -- not just financial, since anything goes with just that one bottom line (see: US health "care" for current example.)  People like that moving in?  Sounds like a good way to sabotage SE by undermining the effort and turning it into a joke.

    Anyway, fine effort by the blogosphere in pulling Trafigura's britches plumb down around their ankles ;)  Possibly it will undermine their own efforts to get into social enterprise where they absolutely positively do not belong.

    Peace. It's cheaper, and more fun. We've already tried everything else.
