Update on the PatVal disaster.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... lapse.html

The company had two 'secret' overdrafts with HSBC and Barclays totalling £9.7m . Of course, for every credit there is a debit, so there must be £9.7m's worth of 'secret' expenses as well. Whether the FD was using this to hide some costs, or spent it on a Caribbean island, I do not know.

In all fairness, I don't think we need to worry too much about Norfolk. It's a thing of the past (in the future at least!)
If anyone can suggest what we'll miss when Norfolk is under water (apart from Alan Partridge) please do say...

A Hampshire Hog who lives in Suffolk.

But to go back to gherton

Norwich is in the top 10 of shopping places UK
Those of the Broads which are in Norfolk
North Norfolk Coast
Too many sites of national importance hisstorically and in terms of wildllife to mention.
Sportwise: Norwich City FC
University of East Anglia, one of the better Uni's in the country and home to the world famous Sainsbury Centre
etc etc etc

Great Yarmouth (many would not miss that including me, not been there for years. Unless you count the hospital which is in Gorleston, orginally part of Suffolk until 19century boundary changes. Oddly they are a town apart from Yarmouth but do not have a Town Council and are just part of Great Yarmouth Council. Only been to the hospital taking others there not for myself thankfully.)

...which i now know is the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, based around a collection from Mr & Mrs Sainsbury.

and going back to some of my previous comments, AMZN have taken a pasting, along with the rest of the Nasdaq in the past few days. fwiw if i didn't have the shares i have i'd be looking to buy.

(As if you needed proof) The great changes on the high street (or in the Mall) are not just happening "this side of the pond": https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/news/us ... spartanntp :crazy:

More expected than news I think but Debenhams is to close 50 stores resulting in a couple of thousand job losses...!
