Is Guinness Good for You?: Bid for Distillers – The Inside Story

Author peter Pugh
Condition Very Good
Cover Type Hardback

What you are about to read is true. None of the names have been changed to protect the innocent. This is a story of the lust for power and the love of money. It includes intrigue, chicanery, skullduggery, tragedy and farce. The vaulting ambition will remind you of Macbeth. The contempt for rules will remind you of Watergate. The duping of intelligent and honourable men will frighten you. The scale of transaction will daunt you. The Guinness affair poses many questions: Who if anyone was guilty of a criminal offence? How many knew but turned a blind eye? How responsible is the so-called responsible press ? Did the government change sides? Does self-regulation work? Would a strict legal framework for takeovers work better? Is a promise made in a takeover document sacrosanct? Is someone going to gaol? Judge for yourself if Guinness is good for you.
