Well Matt Y, that has to be the best reply to an idiotic comment that I have read. Fantastic 10/10.
Why do these people comment on things they know nothing of?

Fletchers obviously need the money, to prop up there failing investments; especially the recent large purchase in Australia.

CEO Ling looks like a fair weather sailor to me. Ask yourself why you would buy (paying double)at the top of a business cycle? Not too mention, the sad state of Placemakers!!

I'd be surprised if Ling survived winter.
