Can’t read the full article, but this sort of revelation normally happens a bit further down the road. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

I can’t read the article.

But thank god he didn’t succeed; judging by the current fortunes of both banks, it’s clear the banker knows how to run the more successful bank.

I remember in the early days Tom saying he’d signed and NDA and not able to talk about it all, I hope Anne speaking out voids it and he can share his thoughts if indeed he wants to.

Success would have spoken both more quietly and more loudly

Im considering taking a trial if it’s interesting.

Ah I see curtains twitching and the neighbors starting to gossip, personally not that interested in either side of the story.

It’s in The Times.

Eek, i meant Times the whole time, still behind a paywall. I think it’s time for me to go to sleep :stuck_out_tongue:

Any interesting highlights? TL;DR?

Blomfield is a shit dinner party host and is socially awkward. He tried to boot Boden out of her own company but wouldn’t accept her resignation unless she took the debt with her. So he left instead. A chicken won’t feed ten people.

I know that lots of folk want to read it, but please refrain from pasting the whole thing here. Summaries and quotes are fine, but the whole thing isn’t, I’m afraid :pensive:
