That's an interesting approach. Experience points to a standard response
of companies in recession... shed staff.

Most of them put on some kind of short-term blinkers and run to the
balance sheets.

'Hmmm. Marketing. Sounds great in principle but they can't prove it.
Besides which they're all arrogant and dress funny'.

'...and what the Hell is this 'New Media Dept'? They're costing us a
quarter of a million in salaries alone and we're trying to justify it as
an investment in our future. Fuck that. Run out the P45s'.

You can share my cardboard box on the Strand, Ray.
