I found this when looking for the Ratners reference in post below. It’s a captivating account of his final months at the helm of Ratners by Gerald Ratner.

It goes to show you that context is king over content – never, ever say anything without regard to the context. Gerald’s jokes were funny before the recession, but they cost him everything after it. Alas, comedy really is in the timing.

I defy you not to feel a pang of pity for the man (he subsequently launched an online jewellers – I wish you every success Gerald!).
