Wall Street Journal's World Watch doesn't see so well

Mohamed Al-Fayed, the owner of Harrods, the London department store, appeared to be behind a bizarre April Fool hoax suggesting he was about to “float” Harrods on the stock market.

An item in yesterday’s World Watch column reported that Harrods had said it would do so on April 1. On April 1 the company said that statement was an April Fool’s joke.”
