    Oh for pitys sake how many more times are new people going to be appointed by companies in trouble, costing them MORE.. and whats the usual result?
    WHY has everything changed since the age of the accountant.. HOW did we survive before it. Modern business techniques seem to be the reason for all the disasters of the last few years.

CHIEFS are selling out..
