Deathwatch - Adams goes bust, bright 2009 for administrators
As dull as it invariably is, it seems the only secure job in the next 12 months will be that of an administrator. Unfortunately, once every business in Britain has gone bust, they'll go into administration themselves. We're not sure what happens after that.
Still, hypothetical hyperbole aside, the list of high street chains going to the dogs is growing longer than Ron Jeremy's trouser elastic, as the BBC reports that kiddie's clothing retailer and manufacturers Adams has applied to go into administration. 2,000 jobs are on the line, as well as 260 stores across the UK and another 166 abroad.
