Tobes showing off to his dad. Reminds me of Toms empire.
I suppose we don't know how shakey the gin business is. We know the
pig one is pretty sound as Neil ran it and is supervising and we know
Rex is a steady worker, whereas Toby is not. He seems able to work
hard but not reliably. He does sound very like his dad. Bigs it up
and no substance. I am expecting dad's wine business to turn out iffy.
What will it be? Almost broke and needs sales? Rubbish wine? Dodgey?
Doesn't deliver after being paid?
I like AH so wanted him to be likeable :(
Sorry about that. He’s playing a mustachio-twirling villain under a thin

"business" to bear any resemblance to normal business practice, nothing
in Ambridge does.
I do sometimes wonder how far the influence of soaps is responsible for
the high failure of new small businesses. The actual running of such a
business is never portrayed unless for dramatic effect (see Elizabeth's
sudden problem at Lower Loxley). No one ever consults an accountant,
keeps books or pays tax, as far as we know, and businesses are set up at
the drop of a hat by people with no prior experience who seem to manage
them alone. Anyone listening to TA or watching TV soaps could easily be
misled into thinking it's all a doddle if you have a bit of cash to get
