    That is classic. Personally I’m into purgatory myself

    I laughed when I saw this.

    Hotchin and Watson will forever be stained.

    Bit of a shame really because they are clearly very competent businessmen. They appear to have got a bit carried away with, um, greed. After all their business model said;

    1. Borrow money from the investing public at a rate.
    2. On-lend that money to businesses etc at a slightly higher rate.
    3. Then on repayment from the businesses repay the money to the investing public.
    4. Keep the difference as profit.

    Problem is of course blindingly obvious – they took the final step 4 and slotted it in between steps 2 and 3 (and sometimes between steps 1 and 2).

    For that there will be no forgiveness. And they do not seem to realise. Maybe they are not such good businessfolk after all.

      They’re the type of people that shouldn’t be let anywhere near a business but they get there due to the underlying capitalist culture that worships these types of people.

    So a multi-million dollar business can personally harrass a private citizen? Hell make their money on trampling all over decency and fairness – not in any clever way (political satire, comedy) but just to make money. Of course, Hotchin is getting ‘what he deserves’ in some people’s minds – but getting it from Hell? Irony.

    Hell pizzas just reflect and represent the thinking of a significant number of NZs, particularly men, and young
    women. They follow an unprincipled, me-first, sensation-oriented, cynical view that parasitises on the society that tries to hold to values of respect for others and responsibility as citizens. They don’t give a f**k.

    Heh, Tigger its been suggested that Hotchin take Hells to court, where he could explain how he is not in fact greedy.

    I hope he does. Hell would win.
