Quotes

In a statement, Carpetright said: "The UK business saw small but steady improvements in sales growth during May and June, with this trend accelerating significantly during July, assisted by weak comparatives in 2013 when sales were impacted by a prolonged period of hot weather."
Higginson commented that "whilst there are undoubted challenges in the industry at the moment this is a fine business and I am looking forward to working without he great team at Morrisons who work hard every day to serve customers."
Sir Ian said: "Andy Higginson has a tremendous reputation and a distinguished career at the forefront of retailing in the UK and I am sure he will be a huge asset to Morrisons. I am very pleased to welcome him to the board as deputy chairman and look forward to working with him to ensure a smooth transition to the chairman role."
'When I left work and started working as a hobby, I chose to raise cattle,' said Sir Ken. "I have something like 1,000 bullocks and, having listened to your presentation, Dalton, you've got a lot more bullshit than me." Ouch. Presumably Philips is hoping Higginson will have the know-how to prevent similar outbursts in the future
