Dear friend,

Check out the Ironshore - Heritage bid situation. Actually I say 'bid', but there is no bid yet.

What a cracking story:

Leave a company just before its IPO, go to Bermuda, raise $1bn and shake the market up with your blinding aggression, make loads of money and then try and buy your old shop!

Bang - what a bolt of lightning! It's Les Rock through and through - bold, audacious and breathtaking.

It's just like the old Victor Kiam Remington microscreen shaver adverts

"I was so impressed I bought my old company!"

I hope they bought Les a nice leaving gift when he went, because if it wasn't up to scratch it may soon be payback time!
