Newly appointed "out of left field" Deputy Chair of the Threadbone Corporation, Mr Royston "Roy" Binstock has hardly had time to get his feet under the corporate table than the Great Heaving conglomerate has announced sweeping changes to its board and management structure.

It's a tightrope and Mr Binstock needs to tread carefully". Mr Binstock is understood to be on a two week rolling contract.

Commentators are finding it hard to"read" the potential shifts in power it may represent. A spokesperson for Mrs Threadbone said yesterday: "People should study the diagram with care. Things are not always as they seem and I am not ready to throw in the towel just yet!"
