Oh my, what a surprise. Not.

I had a conversation with a former (fairly senior) Pipex colleague four
weeks ago who told me that my reasoning that bits or all of the company
would be for sale after relocation of the Nottingham operation to London
was, in so many words, complete bunk. My initial observation was that
the hosting division would get sold off, which this announcement
obviously shatters; however I still wouldn't be at all surprised to see
each bit sold off separately.

Pity the few who relocated, that's all I can say. Uncertain future to
uncertain future, what a nice way to treat them.
