But no one in management gets on with him for long.' Business colleague 'M&S have yet to meet their judgement day.' Philip Green, on withdrawing his second bid to take over Marks and Spencer 'I just thought you should know that I tore your f**king article out and put it under the cat's arse where it belongs.' Philip Green to a journalist"
