    It's nothing to do with Brexit - you need to get with the program. It's Corbyn's fault. Nothing can be blamed on Boris and Brexit, it must all be blamed on Corbyn.

    Actually, it's probably more to do with the supermarkets. You get everything you need from a large Tesco or Asda for a fraction of the prices Mothercare are charging. They used to have a monopoly, and now they really don't.

    The overseas arm of Mothercare is profitable and will not be affected so why is it always the UK sections of retail businesses that seem to go titsup?

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Possibly one of the worst retailers in the UK over the last 15-20 years. It's had so many mishaps and unsuccessful turnarounds. If it was a dog it would have been put down years ago to save it from further suffering.

    There will be many more retailers go out of business in the next 3-5 years.
