Snoop's informers have spied the boys behind Anglo - the saviours of SDL - traipsing around Leisuresoft to see if it's worth adding to their growing distribution empire. Stuart Tidy and National Car Parks heir David Gosling have already expressed an interest in Centresoft but now reckon that might be a bit of a closed shop with the Centresoft management on the inside track with its MBO. Tidy said that if Anglo got Centresoft it would become a slimmed down operation. SDL certainly got lean with its jog round from Sidcup to new premises in Woking losing 40 staff in the process. Current employees of Leisuresoft could look forward to a two hour each way commute if things go the Anglo way.
