    Woooooowzers. £500m ?
    I'm going to guess that includes cash in bank, assets and all the mountain of Titanium Dioxide they've squirreled away.

    I'd off offered £500, a roll of half used sticky tape, a few paper clips and what ever else is in my man draw.

    I wonder what the US consumers will make of it. For them it was always about boasting and provenance, as in, "Farrah and Bahhl, Oh don't you know it's English paint made in England, as in England France".

    Hey, if anyone from Hempel is reading this, you've bought a BRILLIANT brand but most of the products are plop. :tongue:

    Yay, it will be like it was 1000 years ago when their forefathers, the Vikings, came and pillaged our hard earned money. Hopefully none of the raping this time though (it does feel a bit like you're getting bent over and rodgered though when buying their tat).
