I think they did

Ive always been a bit confused by HMV they seem to be fighting against themselves by offering cheaper product online (with free delivery) than you can buy in the store

Demand has been sucked out of the economy by all the cuts. There was just no resilience left to face-off the other challenges. Pot hole-Charity shop Britain.

I used to hate Oxford street then I kind of discovered it not re-dis. Now there's probably gonna be no reason to go there. I loved going down to the jazz section with the added bonus of annoying my daughter.

Do you talk out of your arse in your life offline?

Cuts have nothing to do wih the demise of HMV... online purchasing, digital downloads and competition from the likes of supermarkets has destroyed their customer base.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Well if you want to believe it's nothing to do with the slump in demand caused by cuts then you carry on - it doesn't however make it true.
Clearly the only blimp upwards was caused by the huge public investment for the Olympics.
Osborne's efforts to sustain negative growth seem to be succeeding.

Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...
