“Er…I actually didn’t buy anything.”

    Umunna’s response neatly sums up HMV’s whole problem. Too many people went to their stores and didn’t actually buy anything. Or went back home and bought it online.

    In my start-up agency we had a policy of ‘in the room’ claims when padding out CVs and experience to impress clients.

    Basically you could project physical presence at the time to infer perhaps more in credit than warranted.

    It can of course work the other way if poorly deployed.

    Ugh, it was even worse: he started the interview by saying that he bought vinyl in HMV but that he also supported independent record shops. Yeah, right!
