Some of the SSSD know the background to this , but i shall briefly outline the story.
Around march of this year we were in the death throes at work. The idiot owner had run out of cash, and his rather annoying partner had got a little tired of paying our wages . As a last hurrah Mad Malcolm responded to an advert to be filmed for a Channel 4 docu - drama with Sir Gerry Robinson MP ( He tried to sort the NHS, ran Granada Hotels , did a series called "I'll show them who's boss!") Basically remaking the old Sir John Harvey Jones series "Troubleshooter", with a touch of Dragons den as he would be lending firms money ( or his TV appearence fee ) to help them survive.
They filmed for about 10 days on site, and generally stirred things up to create more drama. It wasn't much fun as we had no work to do as we had more or less run out of stock,and funds to play with.
The annoying thing is it was mostly avoidable , and all down to mad Malcolm who runs the business.
Anyhoo. I , up till 9.45 on Thursday , still have a job and still get paid each week. So I put myself forward for much drubbing and taking of the mick as the STW massive can deliver. I haven't seen any of it yet . It might be a load of codswollop, but it got a highly recommended in the Independant on saturday.
