Bad sport

Daily Mail - - Freeview Primetime Planner -

I HOPE Mike Ash­ley fails in his at­tempt for more con­trol of Deben­hams.

After his takeover of House of Fraser, all the branches within 50 miles of my home have been listed for clo­sure.

Shop­ping on­line is use­less be­cause the de­liv­ery charge has been in­creased and most of the fash­ion brands have been re­placed by sports­wear. There are so few de­part­ment stores left, so don’t let Deben­hams be­come an­other Sports Di­rect.

B. SIMP­SON, Pre­ston, Lancs. THOUGH Richard Lit­tle­john’s col­umn was tongue in cheek, his sug­ges­tion that we should send in Philip Green and Mike Ash­ley to ne­go­ti­ate on our be­half with the EU is not a bad idea.

What has been a dis­as­ter for this coun­try is leav­ing mat­ters in the hands of pro-Re­main civil ser­vants and gorm­less, self-serv­ing MPs.

We should leave with­out a deal, and then get a group of ex­pe­ri­enced busi­ness lead­ers to strike trade deals di­rectly with EU busi­nesses, cir­cum­vent­ing politi­cians.
