The insurance will, one hopes, pay for the replacements yet again, but it never replaces the lost hours of production or the general stress factor. Both ourselves and the local coppers – who I feel are as bored with it as we are – are in continual dispute with our landlords who fail to take any responsibility whatsoever. Needless to say, the steel doors were put in at our expense. New alarm systems will now have to be added at our expense. All we’re asking them to do is put up security cameras, which they just happen to make. However, they do not feel any obligation to help in anyway. Our ten-year lease is up next year. Strangely, I will have little qualms about not renewing. Loyalty in customers – which is what we are – is not bought by complete disinterest. I can only hope that as tends to happen within this industrial town, his units stay empty after we depart for a very long time indeed.
