Tiscali to shut second UK office. Or not

Shurely shome mishtake?

Here's a strange one. Last week we ran a story how ISP Tiscali UK is to close its centre in Northwich, near Chester, and relocate most the staff to offices in nearby Chelford.

Which all makes sense, especially if Tiscali UK wants to reduce its property bill.

But then we get word that Tiscali has also got plans to shut its office in Chelford and relocate people down to Milton Keynes.

Curiously, this info was backed by some companies in the region, who say they've seen the number of CVs from Tiscali workers pile up on their desks.

Why? Cos they say the Chelford site is due to shut in September.

How odd. How very, very odd. Especially since Tiscali UK says there are no plans to shut its centre in Chelford. ®
