This us about people losing their jobs and mismanagement and you're waffling on about the country being doomed. Their situation has nothing to do with brexit......So Go then, no-one here is stopping you or weeping
Lady Greed, sorry, Lady Green could invest some of the £1 billion should took out in profits a few years ago, or has she spent it all? Removed

Green is a hard worker and a self made man like myself. I wouldn’t sacrifice my hard earned money to save a business that’s been affected by this pandemic which is the fault of no one. Blame the government for these ridiculous lockdowns that were not needed
He's a crook and a thief byany accounts and mismanaged the companies even before covid, and who knows what's happened up his workers' pensions (many of whom by the way work hard on low pay and who find themselves in a worse position). No sympathy for him but do the thousands out of jobs. As for lockdown not needed. Let's hope you and yours don't get covid when it's open season for everyone. Removed

If it's not a viable business, why bother? You don't stay a billionaire by throwing good money after bad.
Yet you borrow other peoples money for the same purpose?! Wow are you insane?! Removed

“Sir Philip had been in talks with potential lenders about borrowing £30m to help the business through Christmas.”

Anything to avoid selling that £100m superyacht of his then, coupled with avoiding tax by being based in Monaco.

The (high-street) king is dead... long live the king, AMAZON and the humble courier driver.

RIP shops, shopkeepers and hoards of vile shoppers and frankly, good riddance.
RIP thousands of jobs. RIP the economy.

Are you a moron?

But Green will be OK, won't he. Or does he face the appalling prospect of having to sell a yacht?

*The pub was called the Cock Inn

I await some typical tory replies telling my this is completely acceptable but inevitably they will just say something about jeremy corbyns socks or nicola sturgeon.

Awful man. Got what he deserved.

Shame for the employees, shameful for Green. Perhaps he will just fade away now. His employees are better off in the long run without scum like Green. Removed

Sleaford Mods sum it up nicely: https://bit.ly/3q7K8fZ
All of the money ('Sir') Philip Greed siphoned off to his wife in Monaco, as 'dividends' for tax (evasion) purposes, sure could come in handy right now!
This man is one of the (alas many!) unacceptable faces of modern capitalism...
Unfortunately, over the past 40 years this sort of selfish and greedy behaviour has become the acceptable norm.

Well, Sir Philip. Your net worth 2020 according to Wikipedia is $2.2 Bn. Show a little compassion and humility and use £30 m of your own money to keep YOUR business going. Who the hell needs 2.2 billion anyway? You are 68, and assuming another 20 years of active life thats £110 million a year of spending, or $2m a week. Really? Come On, STEP UP MAN, You are a Knight of the Realm "Knoblesse Oblige"

Agenda is: Herd Immunity: Brexit means Brexit, Europe will cave in get a deal, Take back Control, Oven Ready Deals, breaking international treaties, , Kent in Tier 3 and turned into a lorry park. Trump robbed. Removed
