somehow I don't think (and its clearly the case) that Sportotal will be doing any work for any one else. They are shockingly bad at their job.
I suppose they could go into contract negotiation consultancy specialising in 'screwing over Delivery Drivers and Decorators'

Starts 7 weeks on Friday and not a single ticket sold.

As a reminder as of the morning of the first session:

2017 (Welsh cinema) - 301 tickets sold across 4 sessions, sales started 6 weeks before the event
2018 (Guild Hall) - 237 tickets sold across 7 sessions, sales started 8 weeks before the event

How many we going for this time? :IIII:

Think it went 4 weeks before but it was only announced back end of December anyway, so was never in the calendar for long. Think it was back end of January for a back end of February start.

So why can’t they be binned, surely they are not doing what the contract specified, get rid.

If you are inept at a job and completely out of your depth it is never a good idea to get rid of your scapegoat to then put yourself into the direct line of sight

In that case why hasn’t Des announced anything? If it is their fault then he would shout from the rooftops, if it is not their fault the why are they quiet?

How easy that is depends on the contract.
