2020-03-30 11:34:03

As I write shares in Restaurant Group (RTN) have plunged by 18%. There is a false market here. Some folks know the reason, others do not as boss Andy Hornby has told regulators to feck themselves by NOT issuing a statement about price sensitive information. What a complete banker.
