8 Hilarious Resignation Fails (and Wins) of 2013
Huffington Post - about 3 years
1. Hilary Clinton, former Secretary of State In February 2013, Hillary Clinton sent to President Obama her resignation letter as Secretary of State, dutifully thanking him for his friendship and the opportunity to serve in his Cabinet. Slate's Byron Boneparth called the letter "a bit wordy," but zeroed in on the "most noteworthy element: the odd choice of typeface." The font was promptly crowdsourced to be "Poor Richard," which Boneparth termed not just "ugly" but "obscure ugly." "Will Hillary Clinton's Terrible Taste in Typefaces Sink Her Presidential Chances?" Slate asked. "If Clinton does decide to run for the highest office in the land," Boneparth opined, "she might want to avoid awkward fonts with tall capitals, short lowercases, and a general impression of fustiness." 2. Andrew Mason, Founder and former CEO of Groupon In March, Andrew Mason, the founder and CEO of Groupon, resigned. "After four-and-a-half intense and wonderful years as CEO of Groupon," he wrot ...

House of Lords swells with addition of would-be-mayors and party donors
Guardian (UK) - over 3 years
Thirty new peerages announced as upper house grows to unmanageable 785, with Tories overtaking Labour A billionaire industrialist, a nightclub owner and the former boss of ITV were among 30 peerages announced in a working peers list that was dominated by donors to all parties. Fourteen Tory peers were announced, 10 Liberal Democrats, five Labour and one Green, taking the size of the Lords to an unmanageable 785, making it one of the largest legislatures in the world. The Liberal Democrat peer Lord Oakeshott said the list included some good individuals but was contaminating parliament because of the number of big donors who had apparently been rewarded with peerages. "Cash for peerages pollutes parliament and the political parties that collude in this corruption," he said. Efforts had to be redoubled to reform the second chamber and take big money out of politics. The two big Tory donors appointed are Sir Anthony Bamford, chairman of JCB, the yellow mechanical digger manufacturer, ...

NatWest hit by system failure less than a year after last outage
Guardian (UK) - almost 4 years
Bank says that online and telephone banking, cash withdrawals and payments have been affected for majority of UK customers Millions of Natwest customers were left unable to withdraw cash or make transactions on Wednesday, less than a year after IT problems left many unable to move money or pay bills for days. The bank said that online and telephone banking, cash withdrawals and payments had been affected. It said it understood that a majority of UK customers had been affected. But no reason was given for the problems. NatWest also confirmed the problem on its customer services Twitter account: "We are aware of the problems our customers are having and apologise, we will provide more information as soon as we have it." But the apology was met with scorn by hundreds of its customers, with many angry that the bank had suffered yet another system failure. Chris Holmes, from Lancashire, tweeted: "@NatWest_Help is there a problem again?!!! Suddenly can't use my debit card and all of yo ...
