Mike Ashley says he won’t be ‘saving’ anybody else from now on

12 months ago

Mike Ashley has called a halt to his generosity.

The retailer saying he won’t be riding to the rescue of any other failing businesses.

This is part of an ongoing process as Mike Ashley blames everybody but himself, especially politicians, for a series of disastrous business decisions.

Decisions which have cost both Ashley himself and Sports Direct, absolute fortunes.

The likes of House of Fraser, Goals and Debenhams all proving to be very bad deals.

His real life game of Monopoly brought to an end, at least temporarily, trying to take advantage of those other businesses in distress.

As Newcastle United fans well know though, you take everything Mike Ashley says with a pinch of salt.

Ashley is just playing politics and trying to deflect blame from his own poor decisions.

He will very quickly be back and looking to prey on the weak for good deals to further expand his business empire.

For Newcastle fans, we just hope that sometime soon he will for the first time be genuinely trying to sell Newcastle United, in order to help fund his business expansion elsewhere.

We will all be eternally grateful for how he ‘saved’ our football club in 2007 but we have now had more than enough of this ‘saving’ to last a lifetime.

Mike Ashley putting this out statement via a Sports Direct spokesperson:

“While there continue to be retailers in distress, with the latest example being Mothercare.

“Sports Direct currently has no intention of looking at saving any of these retailers whilst there is a lack of protection for shareholders or owners, because unscrupulous politicians are more interested in their own PR than doing what is right.”
