Cullen piece was galling to read

Madam – As the director of a modest family-run SME, I read with interest the piece by Liam Collins on Bill Cullen (Sunday Independent, March 3, 2013) and I was astonished at the overall tone of the article, as well as that of Mr Cullen.

Ask anyone in business and they will tell you that there is nothing worse then hearing that a client who owes you money has gone into liquidation. Thankfully this has not happened to us too often, but when it has happened it has, of course, affected our business. It is very hard to watch your work and effort get shaken by the actions of others, and all the while knowing there is nothing you can do to stop it.

It is rather galling to read an article where the person responsible for directly affecting the stability of other businesses, and whose business ultimately failed to meet its obligations, is given a platform from which to address people on what is truly important in such a blithe manner.
