Blown out of all proportion

The things poor lawyers have to deal with. At the P&O shareholder meeting to discuss the takeover by DP World, one irate chap stood up to make the well-observed and entirely rational point that, because the ports operator is based in Dubai, it therefore almost certainly has links to Al-Quaeda and therefore will almost certainly look to bomb the Channel Tunnel in order to increase the ferry company’s profits.

Tulkinghorn’s mole at the meeting reports that despite this outburst, it was still tamer than the Man Utd-Glazer equivalent.
