In The Perfect Day the deal with Borret has been agreed but Edward is still convinced it is not all it seems and doesn’t want to make such a big investment believing that if you tie yourself up to just one company then there is much further to fall and it looks like some serious trouble is on the way with a major strike at the docks which could spell disaster for Hammond Transport as a quarter of their work load goes through the docks.
Edward wants to take a tough stand with both Borret and the strike situation but for once it is out of his hands and it is David, thanks to his flirty ways with Borret’s PA Sally, who is able to have the biggest opportunity to shine.
“Listen you three voted for that Borret contract, now you better be prepared to pay for it!”
