Big questions for Unilever board after GSK pursuit ends
Delivering a minor heart attack to the share price, however temporarily, is not a good lookIt was fun while it lasted. Unilever says it won’t bump up its £50bn offer for GlaxoSmithKline’s consumer products division, so one has to assume that’s the end of the saga. GSK’s board, after all, can’t credibly have second thoughts about entering a negotiation: it had rejected £50bn as a “fundamental undervaluation”.Yet two big questions remain for Unilever’s board. First, why wasn’t the refusal to improve the offer made on Monday this week? On that day, remember, chief executive Alan Jope emphasised exactly the same commitment to “strict financial discipline” but also declined to rule out a higher bid. Continue reading...

Big Dog’s contempt comes back to bite him | John Crace
At PMQs Boris Johnson tried to bluff through a defection, Keir Starmer’s ridicule and David Davis’s Cromwellian condemnationWhat a difference a day makes. On Tuesday Big Dog had been Hang Dog. Not remorseful exactly, as that would require a level of empathy and self-knowledge that is well beyond him. But certainly abject. Sorry for finding himself in such a mess, if not for causing it. Sorry that he had reached the end of the road.Come prime minister’s questions, the trademark defences were back in place. The desperation of a leader, already on borrowed time, who is having to beg for yet another last chance. It’s a sight with which countless betrayed wives and girlfriends are all too familiar. First there was the surefire tell that Boris Johnson is about to start lying: the smirk (though these days it’s rarer to find a time when he’s telling the truth). Continue reading...
