Dominic Chappell, the former owner of BHS, has launched a blistering attack on the retailer’s chief executive, accusing Darren Topp of “haemorrhaging” money from the company.

Mr Chappell, who called Mr Topp a “jumped up store manager”, said that the BHS boss had “failed on every point of the business plan he presented”.

So, err, why didn’t you fire him and get a new one in? That is actually your function….

  1. To be honest, since when has the inability to do one’s job been a sacking matter? Down at the hourly paid manual worker level, maybe. For the rest, it would seem incompetence attracts a healthy compensation package from the employer.

  2. “The money doesn’t just keep rolling in?”

    Except of course the strong suggestion is it did for Mr Chappell… and was always going to.
