After some comments that appeared on the blog earlier today, making insinuations of malpractice at Anglian in the period before its sale to Go-Ahead and personal remarks dorected at Andrew Pursey I feel it is important to clarify a few facts so individuals can decide if it's really worth carrying on this vendetta, which could lead to some potentially damaging legal situations if not stopped.
When Anglian was sold to Go-Ahead, after the compulsory due diligence procedures had been satisfactorily completed, the company was not owned by Andrew Pursey but his parents. They had built the company up over many years and had reached the time to retire, indeed Mr Pursey Snr was in ill health and sadly did not live long enough to enjoy the fruits of his labours. Andrew Pursey stayed on as operations manager but did not enjoy working for a big company and decided to leave, forming Borderbus from scratch in the time to come.
Andrew's parents sold Anglian to give their family financial security for generations to come - and I defy anyone to say they wouldn't do the same given the opportunity.
So I would advise those people making false accusations and insinuations against Andrew Pursey and his family to think very carefully before carrying on with it. Andrew Pursey has never owned Anglian Buses. I would also add that I have not written this on the request of Andrew Pursey, indeed I have not been in touch with him since the comments were posted.
