I had a look at the link to the rangefinder forum. Based on what is being said there, has anyone had the heart to tell Simon Galley about the inevitable fate that shortly awaits Ilford as well? It seems that the worst case scenario( total failure ) is in fact the only case scenario but no-one at Ilford has spotted this yet.

Simon Galley may think he is helping to run a viable business but is actually arranging the deckchairs on the Titanic

On the other hand it might just be that the Ilford board knows a bit more about the future of their business than we as outsiders do.
