    My name is Little Tommy Sossige and I am here today to invite you to invest in a garanteed earner.
    I need £50K investment to fund the growth of my Sossige empire.
    The money will go to the refurbishment and development of a vacant business unit into an industrial scale food processing unit in record breaking time to meet a teeny-weeny little order for my balls order that is bound to massive extra orders and a guaranteed return of zillions of per cent on your investment.
    I won't need any more help form you because I know it all already and this time next year I will be ousting one of you and sitting where you are.
    I am offering 1% equity in return for £50K.

    Snork!

    And he certainly made Brenda see how much her opinion meant to him - in effect "I know you have doubts but Im going to ignore them and go ahead anyway so go back to sewing your samplers dere"

    Good morning Braccers,
    I just listened to last nights' nonsense, but was a little bleary eyed when I wrote the above so sorry about the typo's.
    He really is truly horrible and deserves to fall flat on his sossiges.
    Having steered close to the wind and been bailed out twice before, I hope it is third time lucky for all of us who are urging a visit by any passing failure fairy.

    And as you can hear Dragons, I have done my homework and know all the hackneyed jargon . I can match your blue sky thinking with mine out of the box.

    If businesses are built on talking in cliches and linguistically tortured phrases even when at home with your girlfriend, then rest assured, my product placement will never let you down.

    He is delusional. He has learned nothing from his past mistakes.

    The SLT being run over is an outcome to be fervently desired. But, only after his financial ruin when, after over extending himself again and running up huge debts, his wealthy grandmother refuses to bail him out and asks for her original investment back again.

    I see my post has been removed.

    I have no idea why - so I will try again

    Now you know that is wrong on so many levels Dr Wonder Leg.

    He has this freewheeling arrangement with mummies bank. Wot no business plan, never mind the pollytunnel loan, or the mortgage holiday, or the cashflow crisis, nor other creditors - so £ 70K. - No probs obviously.

    Negotiate the lease and legals completed on that unit next door .- same day obviously.

    Prepared the building internally to hygine safety and handling stadards. - Specialist consultants with no work ready to go.,

    Specify, order and install all that processing/cooking /refrigeration equipment, - Local provider of such equipment has just had a cancelled order exactly what you need and can deliver on Friday

    Recruit staff (you just know it will be the Tea Girl + Ed/Emmurr - but never mind) Train and get certificated.

    Source sufficient inredients - readily availabel in two weeks

    Now that large order can be ready on time - in time.and within buget


    Perhaps the last two words caused a problem previously? I equated this to a castrated male member of the bovine family. and used the correct word for that.

    Still that'sthe younger generation for you!
