Thread: Collapse of Thomas Cook

I was thinking about a comment made on the thread with regard to the PM. In this case I get the impression it is an allegation that some one he knew obtained business from knowing him. I then thought is that different or worse to a party funder wanting laws changing and dictating some aspects of a political party, in or out of government.

Perhaps more importantly most governments or that is the civil service will have some behind the scene influence in supporting businesses and industries where there is a significant public interest. If they helped or how they could help indirectly in a discrete manner in this instance is unknown to me.

Yet the more I read about recent company history, if the management had pulled of a turn around, a few million in salary and bonuses would with retrospect seem very good value. As it is they were vastly overpaid.

Particularly disturbing, the shear numbers of people who have lost there jobs is, well, alarming. Given the state of the UK travel industry and the world, or is that the European economy, I cannot see any business rushing in to fill the void left by the collapsed businesses. This indicates that many will not easily find a similar job.

I also suspect that there will be a knock on affect in areas I did not immediately think about From airport baggage handlers, ground staff. Will the situation lead to cancellation of new aircraft, or a surplus of second hand aircraft. That is if people reduce the number of holidays they take in the short term.

I really hope I am wrong on the ramifications with respect to the obvious and wider issues that this collapse could lead to.

No allegation made by me Erf, The Sunday Times ? ran the story, said individual has no comment it seems.

I would have thought that a high rate of roll could produce a not insignificant centrifugal force on the wings.

A high roll rate will also create a significant frictional load between the wing tube and it's mating tubes in the wings thus reducing any tendency for the wings to depart

I'll up my roll rates, safety first eh. face 1

No fan of our comic book prime minister eh John?

Not a fan of any individual behaving like this, and not being held to account for it, regardless of which party.

how have some of these people avoided jail ?

Probably all the money they have. Or is that a little cynical?

Not cynical enough I reckon, if they open that door, be some money to be made building more jails.

Look at the wages the higher ups paid themselves, one received £2.9m bonus from a failing company ? No need for him to sign on then.

Its always the way though isnt it. All these massive companies go bust and yet the big boys at the top always seem to leave with a bonus of millions of pounds. I wish i could get a million pound bonus for being totally incompetent.

Yep just form another company, or get their snout in the trough elsewhere, the "little people" will have to make do and mend, how have some of these people avoided jail ?

23/09/2019 12:58:04

Yep, takes some skill to pocket a big bonus, leading a company to fail, hadn't noticed the lack of talent around though, seems to be a common event.
