    The electrical firm I worked for done all the electrics on a massive refurb in Camden about 3 years back. Would have cost a tune.

    I wonder what that tells us about the economy?

    And what we have to look forward to!

    OK let's get this right. A loan shark company are going out of business along with a pound store.

    Yet we have record employment levels

    And your saying we are scrapping the barrel..

    Are you suggesting Poundland went bust because they are too expensive ??

    They went bust because the government clamped down on this kind of stupid interest rate loan, and I think they had to pay people compensation....

    No loss imo. Preying on the poorest people and getting them further into debt.

    Yes, when you consider that 99p stores were adjacent to many. I bought some batteries at poundland, for £1 surprisingly, but when I saw the same ones in the 99p store, I took them back for a price match.

    When companies go bust and they owe you money, often it's a case of 'tough luck'. I really hope that those people who owe Wonga dosh don't have to pay them back :)

    Of course they will. Yet if Wonga owe contractors moneys for work done, I'm sure they will have to spin.
