I think that the business Antdad refers to in this thread is Kirby Beard Razor Co, which I don't think was owned by Simpson.

He's just saying that he thinks if he were to make a documentary about it it would be as interesting as Gary's which may be tactless but is not a comment about your business.

I'm not defending his attitude towards your lad, but best to make your points valid if you wish to make them.

I think the association he is alluding to is very obvious

Nah...it'll be about as interesting as Gary Young's..

Company made stuff, some of it good, wasn't run very well, went bust. Fine.

As for the "made in France" bit, I haven't found any evidence to suggest they had a workshop or factory but the dates of manufacture and advertising may suggest any french facility may have been used for the war effort or lack of.

As the last family MD of Simpson I would love you to add some depth to your comments regarding how we ran the Simpson business? 80 years in business and you say it wasn't run very well?
You seem to have a very high regard of yourself and your knowledge of running MY business! I think you need to consider how anal your comments are before making personal comments towards my family. Perhaps 'Sir Antdad' is more appropriate for you than my son

I´m sorry to write this, but it seems like you´re on a mission here. If you´re Garys father I can understand and appriciate your efforts and where you come from, but Antdad never actually said anything about your former business, only how interesting he thought a documentary about Gary would be. He prob doesn´t like your son and I´m pretty sure the feeling is mutal, what I don´t understand is why a grown man must be defended by his dad, at an internet forum.

I am defending a business that I ran for many years. I am on no mission here.

Its very clear to me what is being said but its not what you are reading.

Also I don't think that its specifically been "Simpson" I think that its that Gary came across to some as a little high and mighty in his attitudes and some people reacted to that. When they did Gary immediately hit back rather then sitting back and thinking whether he could have come across better.

This kind of thing happens all the time on internet forums and often its because the written word is easily taken the wrong way, whatever the reason this kind of tit for tat behaviour won't solve anything.
