Mike Ashley makes astonishing new claims in message to Boris Johnson – Absolutely disgusting

Just when you think Mike Ashley couldn’t get much worse, he’s only gone and shown himself up during the coronavirus crisis.

Last night, the Newcastle United owner claimed he should be keeping his Sports Direct stores open, shamelessly suggesting his staff should be classed as ‘key workers’ and come into work as normal after the Prime Minister advised the country to continue exercising after lockdown was all but confirmed.

A new low for the Sports Direct owner, who’s shown his true colours here, proving he puts money and profits over peoples lives and the safety of his own staff:

His greed knows now bounds. Even by Mike Ashley’s extremely low standards, this is pretty astonishing and an absolute disgrace.

If fans of other clubs or the general public didn’t realise what a colossal moron this man really is, they will now – and they should stop buying from his shops as a result.

Hopefully people now know what a horrible bloke he is and that it wasn’t just Newcastle United fans whinging after all.

  1. Disgusting man, everything he does is to line his own pocket.
    At least the government have told him that’s he’s out of order and it’s not happening.

  2. Slightly inaccurate in so much as while it was Sports Direct and Evans Cycles, Ashley didn’t say or do any of those things, it was Chris Wootton, CFO Fraser Group.

  4. If I can just say, he ain’t the only one and I think we’ve all shown in recent days that we are endangering ourselves with the inability to apply social distancing and using the current so called lockdown as a national holiday, grow up

  5. Typical of the fat controller
    He’s not bothered about people’s safety, his money is his GOD and his mind set would be GREED only. I’m ashamed to admit that I come from Newcastle only coz of his selfishness….

  6. I’m usually the first to jump on the MA hate bandwagon but he’s not the only one, Most sports and fitness shops have stayed open not just dw. So if his competitors are staying open you can’t expect him not to.
