MP slams Farepak boss

MP Jack Straw has slammed shamed Farepak owner Sir Clive Thompson after he blamed the Christmas hamper firm’s failure on HBOS. Sir Clive was quoted as saying that the bank was “hanging the firm out to dry”. However, Straw deemed this comment to be “shameless”, as Farepak was well aware of its financial difficulties even though it continued to advertise its product.
