James Daunt should be ashamed of himself

21 May 2012

James Daunt of Waterstones should be ashamed of himself this morning having announced his chain's digital deal with Amazon. After all it was only five months ago, in December 2011, that Daunt was quoted in the Independent as saying about  Amazon 'They're a ruthless, money-making devil.'? Now I know journalists get quotes wrong but no one could get a quote that wrong.
