      Do I take it that "leveraging synergies across business units to be more than the sum of our parts" has gone the way of the dodo?

        Yes, the new wank word bingo phrases are "strengthen [...] services and products" and "sharpen our focus on customer service". It sounds better than "sell stuff our customers want to buy" and "have less shit customer service", although it is maybe a little less honest.

    Whenever presented with an embarrassment of untold riches, and BT as UKGBNI default telecoms infrastructure conduit has such an embarrassment of third party riches to phish at will in top secret .... in protection and search of vital national security matters ..... does one need an Exceptional Prime Master Plan to ensure future media narratives are much more acceptable and enjoyable to the masses than those carried and broadbandcast of late.

    Maybe that will be the new battlegroup flagship enterprise for Servicing Global Enterprises with Novel News of Immaculate Tales to Follow and Threads to Sow for Spectacular Growth and Absolutely Fabulous Harvesting?

    That is if BT are into Remotely Creating the Future Virtually Anonymously and Practically Autonomously.

    If they aren't, to whom and/or what do they abdicate that responsibility/liability and why? Do they have no fabulous ideas of their own to float for markets to quote upon and deliver capital resources?

      You may have come far, but you'll also go far.

        AmanFromMars always seems to make more sense than the actual Press Release from BT the past few years.
