You can't say they lacked focus.

Gutted that nothing developed for them, especially after the flash of hope when they did their debt-equity swap.

After all these years they'll be closing the shutters for the final time.

It's a developing story. I don't think they'll be able to put a gloss on it.

I'm somewhat surprised, and aren't at the same time.

I see that they've rehashed a lot of their shops, well one out of two in my area into more of printing frames and stuff like that.

Then again what can possibly compete with bigger stores that sell electrical stuff

You're all being very negative.

zugzwang (n.) a situation where every possible move or decision is a bad one, or one that will result in damage or loss.

 

It's not a recovery, it's a relapse.

I wonder what the exposure is on this one?
Face the facts. Then act on them.

It's the only mantra I know, the only doctrine I have to offer you, and it's harder than you think, because I swear humans seem hardwired to do anything but.

Face the facts. Don't pray, don't wish, don't buy into centuries old dogma and dead rhetoric. Don't give in to your conditioning or your visions or your ******ed up sense of... whatever.

FACE THE FACTS. THEN ACT.

f****** stop this now.

Look out Dave, you will soon be handing the keys back mate.

The knimbies who say "No" demand..... a sacrifice!
Arthur: Knimbies of No, we are but simple hardworking families who seek affordable housing on the scrubland beyond these woods.
Knimbies of No: No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No!
Bedevere: Please stop opposing our reasonable demands!
Knimby of No: We shall say "No" to you... if you do not appease us.
Arthur: Well what is it you want?
Knimby of No: We will allow you to build your precious high density shoeboxes, so long as you do not move so much as....

It was a mistake to focus on just one thing.

The more houses cost, the more hours you have to work to buy one. The more hours you work, the more taxes you have to pay the Governbankment. The more debt you take on, the more interest you have to pay bankers, so the more hours you work for them. 

 

If it is asserted that civilization is a real advance in the condition of man -- and I think that it is, though only the wise improve their advantages -- it must be shown that it has produced better dwellings without making them more costly; and the cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
http://classiclit.ab...en-Part-2_4.htm

 

Governbankment
A "Governbankment" is a Government that has no line between itself and banks. It diverts public money (our taxes) to private companies (banks). George Osborne's Help to Buy Bail Banks, will see our taxes go to bankers to cover their losses on mortgages that default. 

 

Democorruptcy
If you say "Democorruptcy" quickly, it sounds a bit like "Democracy". In a "Democracy" people vote for politicians who represent their interests. In the UK's "Democorruptcy" people can only vote for expense fiddling thieving MPs who are in the hip pocket of big business and the finance sector.
