  1. Let’s see how those working conditions improve now.

    The Guardian – power without responsibility, plus added cuntishness.

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    Yeah. I can see the headline in the Guardian now – These people are out of work but you can’t make an omelette ….

  3. Is there much of an overlap between Guardian ‘reach’ and the group of people likely to affect Sports Direct’s share price? Id be surprised…

    The story was followed up pretty heavily on the BBC.

    The people who buy their stuff? I don’t know. But the wives of the people who lend money and buy shares are quite likely to read the Guardian.

  6. @Interested, SMFS, I was thinking about both consumers and shareholders, sure. And fair comment, I really must remember it’s not just artisanal-everything nutritionists reading that stuff. 🙂

  7. Think it had rather more to do with the profit warning than the Guardian, that and the story revelaed in the Telegraph that Mike Ashley’s daughter’s boyfriend has been cut a cozy little deal on the property side which could net him millions. Corporate governance for investors cares more about that than minimum wage stuff….
