That is what that thread was REALLY about, lets me honest.
daniel kelly syndrome
is this gonna be like when a really huge but shit band splits up and we all rejoice only to discover that every member of the band, even the shitting drummer, is going to release a solo record? Will mini-Foxtons start popping up?
and maybe sack some dicks / close a few branches. Maybe they will meaner about who gets to drive the twatmobile to save on the petrol money.
Foxtonites will infiltrate everywhere. At least they were all in one place before. TRUST NO-ONE.
As far as I can tell from that article Foxtons will still exist, it's just who owns it that has changed. Doesn't even seem like there's any redundancies so I don't know what the hahaing is about
which is fair enough
plus i suspect there will be further restructuring to come from their new financial sector overlords, and in a way its a pretty damning inditement of the culture of excess and bravado they represent. they built this huge new HQ on Parkway and it opened about three months before the markets crashed. because its built in a nasty STEEL 'N' GLASS style you can see that it has space for about a hundred staff. usually it only has about twenty present, and they all look verrrrrrrrrry bored indeed.
drinking in an estate agents? in the middle of a recession? THE JAPES!
but the banks decided to write it all off.
I'm not rejoicing until I get clarification about this aspect.
