    Was there an issue about insider trading and dishonesty involving a higher up at Forbes and the evidence given by him. Is he a fit and proper person. Could he stand up and declare he is untarnished.

    New brooms sweep well, he has a lot of clearing to do of the old accumulated putrefaction and the eradication through legal means as promised has fallen on deaf years with the abdication of duties. This may be the only market in the world that has given refuge to the crooks. The current market although encouraging, is only devolving on a few selected stocks, and to see it continue on a good streak, the air has to be cleared of the pollutants.
