This remainer is happy to see how good things are going at the moment. But we are not out of the EU yet, I can but live in hope the good times for the economy stay with us.

The saddest thing about the Carillion thing is not the shareholders who have lost money they can afford to gamble with but the fact that the company sub contracts all its work out. If these sub contractors do not get paid then an awful lot of people are going to lose money for work they have done. And that means people who cannot afford those losses.

No new news there though, This has been an ongoing saga now for a couple of months. I am just surprised at how incompetent all the parties to this company have been. It can only be its size that has kept it going up until now. Any ordinary company in a similar state would have been put into liquidation a month or more ago.

As it stands now Carillion is a long play for us.
For clarification that means decades.
I think you are both wrong I think we will be out of this investment this month after it has gone bust.

Lots of wise heads here after the fact. Not so many in the thread where we actually double dipped!

I think they're toast now, sadly. It's got the smell of "Monarch Airlines" about it in that the planning is all going on this weekend and they will actually roll over Monday morning, first thing.

I think this is more about not selling when the shares still had a little value left and moving on rather than hoping for the best without a real plan.

All the facts were there when the majority voted not to sell the shares.
