a lot of business chat on here about companies going bust.

Every small business owner is interested in bankrupcy etc. Having been one many moons ago, It's the paranoia that has you waking up in cold sweat convinced you'll arrived at your shop the next day to find your furniture and stock being burned in a pyre and a smoothie shop or some crap has moved in.

Nothing unusual going on. But if Leslie starts wearing a fake moustache and glasses let me know.
