“My business has been completely taken away from me, out of my control and I’m devastated. But, I’ve got to move on. I’m not the first this has happened to, and I certainly won’t be the last. And this is why I am trying to get the message across, because there will be more, there will be more knocks on doors, whether it’s in Cornwall or London or wherever. They’re watching and they know what we’re doing and unfortunately we have been misled and we have been told a pack of lies, and now we are in a situation and it’s not the fat cats at the top that are worried about this, it’s the girls that have been working their arses off, like me.”
