I'm in the wrong game

Blimes. Just got some paperwork through from a liquidator who was tying up loose ends for one of the many companies to go belly up in the last few years (although this one was because of a dodgy principal rather than a tricksy market). Guess what the hourly rate is for a liquidator? Nope, wrong. *500*. Mind you, the job must be rubbish. Anyway, I got a cheque for 96 which is better than nothing I suppose, although it comes in at 0.02% of what we were owed. Hey nonny. ////Update//// Phew, thank goodness for Ol' Beady Rob who spotted that the 0.02% I stated above would mean we were owed about half a million quid. My language would have been stronger if that had been the case. The liquidator's letter was wrong: creditors didn't get 0.0218%, they got 2.18%. The total owed to the creditors was 306,422 but in total they received 6706. //////////////


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
