Blog: Briefcases at dawn

Catherine Sleep | 7 June 2004

It’s always good to get back from holiday and find a really juicy food industry news story in full swing, and thanks to Marks & Spencer that’s exactly what we have. Personally I reckon either one of Stuart Rose or Philip Green could make a good fist of what has to be one of the toughest jobs in retailing today and I’m really curious to see what happens.

Talking of fists, media reports claim the pair almost did come to fisticuffs when they met outside M&S headquarters on Friday. Sounds to me more like a laddish show of machismo than anything serious.
