Two different folk said this was the case, one in a phone call on Monday the other a truck driver I was with last night.
Lad last night even told me where the last remaining transport manager was on Monday and who's trucks were in on a job covering.
The jungle drums are a powerful force

I just hope that they don't ruin anybody else's life on the way out.

As an aside it has also been said to me several times when they have come up in conversation over the past couple of years reference work on the M25 and other places I may have been interested in if not tide up on this job...........Don't !

Many folk reckon they were not the company they were built up to be when Mr Mc sold it.
Run by accountants with no understanding of how to control or treat men or machines.
Some real horror stories of way machines were treated.

Unfortunately I have further bad news. Mercia holdings had also bought out McKenna plant from Oxford. They have ruined a good company and that came from the plant managers mouth to me today, very sadly the founder Mick McKenna whom I also knew died last week. I won't go into any I told you so talk but i did say to my service lads that many things are wrong and I could well see this happening. I have worked for McArdle in the past and with Jim at the helm it was a sucessful profitable company. I could give you many reasons for this disaster from an outsiders point of view but there are two sides to every story so I will refrain.

We got a couple of ex McKenna men driving for us. They left when it was sold off, as did a few others.
