See this article in the Guardian which opens with a report that the four big carriers in the UK didn’t like us playing them off each other:
Many mobile phone company executives are unimpressed with the way the Californian computer group has conducted businesses this side of the Atlantic, although similar tactics were used in the US.
A charge that I addressed this way:
“We took the approach of wanting to get to know the different partners and the different possibilities and to see where there was the best fit. Partnerships take a lot of work – you want to go out on a few dates before you get married. Yes, we dated a few people but didn’t get married… and so there were a few unhappy girlfriends out there.”
Boo friggin hoo, you big British pussies. Get your panties out of your crack.
