About one mile two pence

  1. Picked this up about Maplin Electronics and how another credit insurer has 'abandoned' the company. https://www.theregister.co.uk/AMP/2017/12/18/maplin_credit_insurance_cut_to_zero_by_euler_hermes/ "Sources close to the credit insurers told us high street retailers with a "high cost base and low margin" business were viewed as high-risk bets that are under constant threat from online rivals including Amazon...The removal of credit insurance was the straw that broke Comet's back in 2012, and suppliers are drawing parallels with Maplin too, rightly or wrongly." Thanks again for the thread DB and all contributers. Been lurking since the start and learned/learning so much.
  2. Public sector job cuts to add to the pile - 240 in Department for Business, Innovation and Skills in Sheffield announced earlier and 650 in Department of Health announced yesterday. http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jan/28/government-business-department-shuts-only-non-london-office http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/feb/04/department-of-health-emergency-cash-injection-nhs-jeremy-hunt
  3. Bland Insight - thank you for putting in all that time and effort to create your Shoblerant. Read it once through and now looking forward to a click through to all the articles and videos linked to in the back. And then I might have another read of the book. I've been coming here most days since 2005 but always lurked, because I've always been here to learn. I'm delurking momentarily to pass on my appreciation for a great job well done.
