      Its a case of there's loads of money slushing about - just the numbers on the accounts are fecked.

      Used to work for their now completely fecked computer division.

      Somewhat the times and hubris caused that, but it seems incumbent in the whole company - total whirlpool of insular thinking,

      The number of times they were 6 months behind the curve and then gave up - well I'd have about £6.50.

      But the number of times they were ahead but didn't recognise it, gave up then went back and built something worse - that's probably another fiver.
