Notes from Underground: Um, go Quindell?

By Bearded Marxist Darren Atwater | Sunday 18 June 2017


Ha ha. We've been waiting for this for weeks, but now Slater & Gordon (who were given all the relevent ShareProphets articles when there was still time to back out) has actually filed suit against Watchstone, nee Quindell, claiming breach of warranty and/or fraudulent misrepresentation for a total amount of up to £637 million plus interest. It almost makes one want to root for Quindell this time.

The Germans are always so good at encapsulating whole concepts into single words. I wonder if they have one for the feeling of enjoyment that comes from seeing or hearing about the troubles of other people.
