    Well, that's nice. Neg Rep with the reason '.' for my earlier post. Odd. At least give a reason why, I'm always happy to discuss these things!

    I can understand them not wanting to spook people, but the thing is, unless they actually say 'we're closing' then people can't simply demand things from them anyway. Contracts don't suddenly become null and void because of a change a business announces.

    If Comet owe me something, and they say 'we're going to be shutting down in 12 months', I can't turn up on their doorstep and say 'i want what i'm owed now!'...

    If you read all of the small print it looks like KESA want to keep control of the Pensions,whilst giving the new owners a 50m Dowery, probably because its the pension fund that hold the title to the land and the buildings that Comet Rent for 90 Million a year.

    You can be pretty sure that the usual loosers will be the shareholders, staff and the Taxman. Kesa whom I think are French owned will be laughing all the way to the bank.
