    The selling of Ideal Shopping Direct was a time limited offer and Aurelius were therefore advised to "Just buy it!". I believe it was a leveraged buyout financed on flexi-pay. Peter Simon is expected to be appointed as head of corporate ethics.

    I bet Aurelius paid less for Ideal World than they charge for an iPad 3

    To be fair to them they do have a standard rate tel no published on their website, although not the most prominently displayed.I missed it first time myself and used the 13p per min etc

    With my past experience of buying from IW, and the current batch of goon presenters, I would be more than happy to see it disappear.

    Well at least if they don't like it they can send it back to their local ASDA for a full refund

    Will Aurelius change Ideal World into Bid tv of old or do you think they will carry on with the channel in the current format?
