C4 Thurs 9pm : Me on tele . Swearing and being trucleant to my boss.
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.

If they show the ” I was listening so hard , I didnt hear what he said ” part, and me shouting and deliberatly stuttering my way through a utterly ridiculous meeting with ” Vertically integrated management structure” ( we employ 5 members of staff .- integrate that Miss Management ) Where ‘Brain’ Mad Malcolms partner tells us all off for not workig, when in fact we did more work , and all of her points of arguement I had raised with malcolm on numerous occaisions.Posted 8 years ago
Will probably get slated on the ‘do more with less’ Savage chickens cartoon, which is still our motto at work.Lanesra

In house training – role playing
Well the guy clearly needs to brush up (or rather get some) his sales skills. ‘Yes there is a small charge to taste the beer we would like you to sell for us’ – yeh right.
This ere Rob fella from on here, he’s what’s known as a ‘blocker’.Posted 8 years agoIvanDobskiMember
Potential customer (pub owner type) – “Can I come and have a taste of the beers on offer before I commit to buying them in?
Salesman – “Yeah, there’s a minimal charge and we have a shop – just give us a couple of weeks notice…”
Having seen the results of Ramseys Kitchen Nightmares up close I’m very conscious that what actually happens and what’s shown to have happened can often be 2 very different things. However despite the fact that we’re only in the first adverts I already know where my money would go!Posted 8 years agoLanesra

So, the brewery is now well off – but if that was filmed back in April (or whenever) what is the situation now? IS IVB making money?
Bearing in mind I did a tour there a month or so ago and they’re into Weatherspoons and a shed load (or what appeared to be) of london pubs, is it all roses, dinner and candlelight?
c’mon stm, has it made a (positive) difference?Posted 8 years ago
