I'm keeping these posts clear of the weather topic, for easier admin tasks, but please feel free to post your thoughts on this awful catastrophe. A brief weather respite today & tomorrow, but very wet weather forecast from Sunday onwards. The current forecast data makes very grim reading. When are they going to get back home? The reservoir is not for drinking. It's a canal system top-up. It was pencilled in to be used as a north to south drought water feed, where the canal system could be used as an emergency water supply to London & the Home Counties.

Morning all (too early) Thomas Cook demise. Very sad. It's early days too for an inquest, but some of the writing was on already on the wall. Too many cooks for one thing. They acquired the former Co-op Travel shops, so increasing their ground crew in many localities, at a time when other competitors were shutting High Street shops. Their High Street presence was welcomed, but not in such an expensive way. The slight downturn in business is all that was needed to cut their margins. Many reasons are being sited, political & so on, but by far the biggest wave into package travel is online. Any business that that can be done over the phone or online is vulnerable. At present, no technology exists where a pair of scissors can come out of the screen & cut my hair, but if all I want is a razor, that can arrive in a day if needed. That's the dilemma that every business person has to face. If a business is supplying only (nouns) it better watch out. If a business is supplying a service (verbs) the internet has limited intrusion at present. ps. It wouldn't surprise me to find a consortium of thieves in the boardroom, as has been the case in so many iconic catastrophic business failures. I wonder if, or what, holidays the auditors were promised!
