” no evidence was led to the Commission by Harper McLeod, and no statement was made, on the competitive advantage Rangers Oldco enjoyed which effectively ruled LNS from considering it.” Ralph Topping,Chairman of SPFL. on LNS
Neil Doncaster to Grant Russell of STV on question as to whether the Wee Tax Case was covered by LNS stuttered:
“The nuts and bolts of it were covered by Rod McKenzie earlier. I don’t want to go into that. It’s boring and dry. It’s covered. The three players that were covered by that The Wee Tax Case were ultimately dealt with in Lord Nimmo Smith’s decision.”
So forgive me Mr. Doncaster when I incontrovertibly assert that you are a barefaced liar. It’s unfortunate for you that I had exclusive access to the minutes and correspondence from an SPL interim meeting to discuss whether to appeal the disproportionate fine handed down by LNS.
Topping’s e-mail was marked “Private & Confidential.” This e-mail was sent to Mr. Doncaster. Topping clearly states that Rod McLenzie did not lead any evidence to LNS on the competive advantage enjoyed by Rangers.
Of even more import in the LNS whitewash fiasco was the decision by Neil Doncaster to change the timeline and scope of the commission to exclude the unlawful DOS/VSS scheme from consideration.
So where is it covered Mr. Doncaster? How about some nuts and bolts from a QC that you prepared earlier?
This individual, the CEO of the SPFL, is prepared to lie to defend the discredited LNS commission. Doncaster must be taken to task.
One won’t be sitting down for a cosy chat to discuss ‘our misconception’ Mr. Doncaster. We will have you in the witness box and invite you to repeat your lies under oath.
The corruption is never far from the surface when Doncaster makes any statement,
