    What the hell do I pay my taxes for?

    If he is not wearing a tie, then the fuzz at the door should shoot him for impertinence to his betters .

    Bloody colonialists....

    E.S. is rarely to be seen in public without a suit and tie, as a quick Google search would have revealed.

      We (the British) are the colonialists.

    Schmidt: Worth every cent!

    Seeing how Google has progressed under Schmidt's guidance, along with it's share appreciation, $100-million is a bargain.

    ""wear a tie” asked Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt"

    I guess when you are worth billions, you no longer have to worry about conforming to other peoples dress code demands, as no one is really your boss. (Plus I couldn't even tell you who does and doesn't wear ties, as its not something I notice or care about, but clearly Mr Jeremy Hunt does). So after a snide "wear a tie” comment like that, I wouldn't wear a tie, just to piss off Mr Jeremy Hunt. :)

    By the way, "Mr Jeremy Hunt" sounds like Rhyming Slang for how he behaves. ;)

    Schmidt is leaving. Nothing else needs saying.

    Careless Twitter

    Pretty careless of Jeremy Hunt to spell Schmidt's name incorrectly. I mean, how would he like it if someone got his name wrong. Oh wait...

    Eric, remember me?

    We shared a peddle boat in Amsterdam in July 1987 as part of Sun Microsystems' european kick off. Remember getting all those kites entangled in the yatch masts? I think some of the owners would be thrilled to meet you.

    Can you spare $1m?
