IMO that telegraph article shows how bad and desperate the media is to find anything bad on MTRO. 30K, not sure hill will notice that after what has happened this year, but the media just want to portray him as greedy.
You cannot compare a global company versus a small time banking player like Metro. Someone like google/Apple can afford to have an army to oversee the red tape when trying to do business in places like india, Mtro can't afford to run their UK business (based on their current expense ratio) what makes you think they can suddenly expand into India of all places.
I am just a negative glass half full type of person. I hope there are no surprises on the 23rd. Everything which could have gone wrong has gone wrong this year. I am not sure why Craig is still in his position, after the sp declines.
