The whole Comet situation was dodgy from the start.
The Op capita takeover complete with Â£46.8m "dowry" raised many an eyebrow in the trade.
If Kessa with all its backing could not make it work how could they.
At a time when Currys were investing heavily and Best Buy were a real threat Comet were doing nothing.
Interestingly Op capita were top of the list of creditors and rumours were at the time they still made a massive profit despite failing to turn them round.
And now despite not following the rules the government (us) have to pay out redundancy.
Leaves a very nasty taste in the mouth.
