    He won't be worried. Fluffy press release citing "more time to spend with his family" and a phone number "Golden Goodbye" incoming.

    Very much a Green casualty...

    He announced that he was going to 'green' the company and provide thousands of new jobs in that 'hugely successful' sector.

    Amongst other green moves, he announced that Siemens would quit the nuclear industry in 2011...

    Just goes to show that hard-headed businessmen can be taken in by a scam, same as the rest of us...

    Er, Siemens - don't forget.... chuck out their entire division of IT outsourcing idiots and their PC & laptop designers. Never seen so much JUNK!

    It was not that long ago that I was reading articles about Loscher, and how he took the reins of a scandal-riddled bribery-corrupted Siemens corporation and was looking to turn things around in a positive way.

When they go bad - it's the bus wheels for you, my boy.
