Yes! Now, you have a ten o'clock meeting

with the new owners.

- Yeah.

- Any idea who they are?


Young is all I know, Doreen.

I took your advice

on their pension share offer.

- I took them up on it.

- What? The whole lot?

Yes, lots of us did.

Janice in Accounts, Marcus in Payroll.

Well, it's a solid offer.

Now, you have a prostate check

at 2:
15 today.

I'm gonna miss these little chats, Doreen.

I thought my leaving party

was on Friday.

I don't think this is a party, Mr Jones.

- It's all gone, Richard. The lot!

- What?

Morning, everyone.

Richard, what's going on?

I don't know, Janice.

I have no idea.

- Did you know about this?

- No, of course not, Marcus.

- Is this legal? Can they just do this?

- Yes, of course they can.

Now, wait a minute.

We don't know that.

Just... just give me

some time here, please.

- Will we get paid this month?

- Yes, of course you will.

- Did you know this was coming?

- Of course he didn't!

Someone said the shares are worthless.

Is that true?

- No.

- Yes.


I suppose they'll let us in at some point.

To collect our things, I mean.

Doreen, I promise you,

I will sort this out.

Everyone, listen up! I promise you

I'll get to the bottom of this.

I will find out what's going on

but I just need some time, OK?

What are we supposed to do now?

- How?

- But, Richard, what can you do?

I... I don't know, but I promise you,

I will make sure that every one of you

gets what they're due.

I will not, will not, let you down.

OK, Jean-Baptiste, here I come.

I am interested in the, er...

...the arts and culture.

I love travel and adventure

and generally being...



Oh, God!

'Finally, after heavy bidding,

a diamond has been sold today at Sotheby's
