He's sitting next to his PR bod, who looks like he wants to crawl under the table.

He's coming off like a surly schoolboy. Massive Bastard.

I always feel for the staff in that shop, in the one near me they have a supervisor who shouts at them, and I think great and earning a pittance too

Yes I am. He's coming across as incompetent to me. Apparently has no clue about his own business . Poor little Mike.

The company culture seems ghastly. Ashley stammered his way through questions about company culture and admitted he doesn't have a handle on things. His CEO isn't getting his £4m bonus. He should pay it to the poor souls stiffed by their appalling working practices.

Cross posted KenDodd!

Is the worm finally turning on these shitty employment practises? I really hope so.

Rainbowzippy Tue 07-Jun-16 12:06:26

That's not the impression I got.

Rainbowzippy Tue 07-Jun-16 12:07:50

Can't find any coverage now! Parliament channel is treasury questions. Zzzzz

Rainbowzippy Tue 07-Jun-16 12:10:06

Oh oh oh found it again on BBC news.

He doesn't want people to be calling ambulances "willy nilly"!

Rainbowzippy Tue 07-Jun-16 12:10:34

Christ, he just said "I'm making this up now."

Oh, oh! <rushes to put telly on>

Rainbowzippy Tue 07-Jun-16 12:13:03

200 BBC news on my telly

gaggiagirl Tue 07-Jun-16 12:13:44

<joins in> no one likes Mike. Tosser.

Rainbowzippy Tue 07-Jun-16 12:15:47

The woman behind him has popped a button on her blouse. <irrelevant>

gingerboy1912 Tue 07-Jun-16 12:15:49

Yep I'm watching what a stroppy git

gingerboy1912 Tue 07-Jun-16 12:16:15

Looks for woman with button issuegrin

DaveCamoron Tue 07-Jun-16 12:16:19

He's an absolute scumbag.

gingerboy1912 Tue 07-Jun-16 12:16:51

God he's a condescending twat

Rainbowzippy Tue 07-Jun-16 12:17:51

Prize fool. And out of his depth.

gingerboy1912 Tue 07-Jun-16 12:17:56

So basically he doesn't have a fucking clue what's going on in his business does he.

Rainbowzippy Tue 07-Jun-16 12:19:10

Nope. And hasn't read his briefs either. He's like a study of how not to handle media. His PR bloke must be sweating bricks.

Citizensmith1 Tue 07-Jun-16 12:19:44

just saw the last bit when i saw your post.
cringe cringe.
on a similar vein, anyone else think Philip Green should be strung up by his knackers & made to give his yacht back??

gingerboy1912 Tue 07-Jun-16 12:19:46

The whole culture in SD seems to be built on fear and intimidation.

FancyPuffin Tue 07-Jun-16 12:20:24

He looks exactly like a fat David Cameron angrybird

What is the name of the programme and which BBC channel is it please? I'll watch it on catch up later, at work right now.
