É por causa destas e doutras que eu gosto dos ingleses. Isto é o primeiro parágrafo de uma peça sobre a Vodafone na edição desta semana da Economist:
"Annual shareholders' meetings in Britain are meant to follow a comforting, if sometimes fractious, routine. Individual investors take the microphone year after year to heap scorn on the managers of their companies. Often there is name-calling. More often there are complaints about the sandwiches being served. Sometimes there are grumbles about the previous' years sandwiches. This is usually followed by a mad rush for tea, biscuits and the much-maligned sandwiches in an adjoining room."
