seen a few real tough times Rory - '80s, '90s, noughties, but that one wasn't so bad ... we do not need yet another bugger ....

what is needed is a government, who's members don't have their fingers in so many pies, that they actually reform company law in the UK, to weed out the tw*ts with no working capital and who survive purely on other people's

another interesting story to 'watch'

"Kier refused to co-operate with the inquiry. Council leader Elaine Murray has handed the report to the police."

very interesting page I tripped over, looking for a different name .....

https://www.creditman.co.uk/news/win...17th-may-2018/

" Winding Up Petitions (Companies) Notices – 17th May 2018

The following companies have had Winding Up Petitions issued against them which have been advertised in “The London Gazette”
"

the name Carillion seems to feature highly in the list of 'wind ups'.

haven't seen this reported elsewhere


Lots on the Gov inquiry though .... interesting reading

" Interserve investigated by Financial Conduct Authority "

https://www.theconstructionindex.co....duct-authority

" In a statement, Interserve disclosed that it had received a formal notice of referral to the enforcement division of the Financial Conduct Authority for investigation and said that it would “co-operate fully with the investigation and update the market on the outcome in due course”. "
