Going into receivership is a sad business. Reading about it, one feels guilty over the least chuckle - even when it concerns the downfall of companies with fate-tempting names such as Secure for Life Limited or Business as Usual Limited.

Take the case of Leonard Curtis, the UK's largest independent firm of chartered accountants and insolvency experts, with offices in London, Brighton, Liverpool and Manchester. A recent press release issued on their behalf heralded their participation as joint administrators/receivers for Milroy's, wine and spirit merchants of Soho. And the heading? 'Milroy's whisky club - time called'. Ouch.
