ThisIsMoney.com: Special report: King at Cairn: It’s the tale of David and Goliath, the fleet-footed, smart Cairn against the lumbering, floundering Shell…”: “…he has to say only one word to his critics who want him to play this more cautious, stay-at-home, game. The word is Shell.”

HERE’S a point in the life of any stock market star when they leave the City and enter the pub or golf club bar. It’s when they cease to be a hot topic for a select few in the Square Mile and start to attract wider interest.

Take the recent case of Sir Philip B. Watts, the former chairman of Shell Oil, which is based in London. He became known to many as Sir Philip the Finagler after it was discovered in an internal investigation that, on his watch, Shell had been cooking its books Enron-style, claiming to own way more oil reserves than it actually has. Thanks to this illegal accounting, the company now faces several investigations, major fines, and class-action lawsuits. read more
