Holland and Barrett: A Company in a Zillionth

Disappointed that the operating arm of the Beaker Folk, "Mrs Whimsey's Doilies" plc, was outbid by a Russian billionaire in buying Holland and Barrett, the sellers of vitamin pills and homoeopathic remedies.

I feel let down, really. I offered the holding company a very reasonable sum. To wit, my empty purse which used to have some money in it.

But in the end they accepted an offer of real money - not just its diluted memory.

It's almost like they don't believe in their own products.

  1. The FT has a way of telling you who they're talking about: "Holland & Barrett, whose products include Milk Thistle Effervescent Tablets and Dr Organic’s Snail Gel..." Are you sure H&B isn't a figment of Archdruidical shamanistic imagination?
