City Slickers: Boardroom Tales.

MICHAEL Hardern, the former butler who led the campaign to de-mutualise Britain's building societies, has now turned his attention to the Internet.

He's launching, a service provider which, he claims, will give away free shares.

According to Hardern, will hand them out to registered users. The company will then be floated and the shares, which will be worth up to pounds 1,500, can then be traded publicly.

"Just log on with us and make money. It's a doddle," says Hardern, who wants to launch the project at the end of October and give out the first shares in December.

Hardern says boldly: "My aim is to put Freeserve out of business."

NO LUCK for our counterparts on The Independent. Yesterday they advised their ever- dwindling readership that shares in Orange were a good buy at 1091p a go. By the end of trading, the shares were even cheaper, having dived 10p.

Orange is a good buy - today.
