Mike Ashley Pulls Out Wad of £50 Notes in Front of Factory Workers

Under-fire billionaire Mike Ashley pulled out a wad of £50 notes on a recent trip to a Sports Direct factory which have been likened to Victorian workhouses.

The Newcastle United and Sports Direct owner was leading journalists on a tour of the company’s headquaters amidst a barrage of criticism over poor working conditions and low pay.

But when he had to empy his pockets for security, he produced a fat wad of £50 notes.

Asked why he had so much cash on him, Ashley joked “I’ve been to the Casino”.

Adding: “No, don’t please write that.”
