The Iliad at Ibrox

The empty-headed hubris at Ibrox is a site to behold. It is truly epic and if we were to accept the narrative of a career criminal who lies for a living we could be transported back to Ancient Greece and Homer’s ‘The Iliad‘.

Mike Ashley is cast as Agamemnon, who has captured the intellectual property (Chryseis) and is loath to return ‘her’ to her Trojan Father Chryses and threatens to impose a ransom demand for ‘her’ return.

Agamemnon eventually relents and allows her to rejoin her father, but in a move that serial adulterer Mountie Murray would approve of, he takes in her stead Briseis, Achilles’ favourite war-prize concubine.

Those thinking that Mike Ashley has given away Chryseis for no return should think again. He had his boot on King’s scrawny neck and could have snapped it in two. The Court Case would have been a slam dunk for Ashley. King and Murray clearly abnegated on their fiduciary responsibilities at Rangers Retail by unilaterally withdrawing the use of the intellectual property. Even the disgraced Masonic wannabe Peter Smith could not have helped King and Murray as he has been suspended from the bench for being a self-serving prick ( not to put too fine a point on it).

However King is not the man of letters of world renown. He is more akin to Homer Simpson. He really is that thick:

This inordinately embarrassing surrender by King is being spun as a victory. Traynor is pedalling so furiously at Auchenhowie that his spandex cycling shorts might combust. The image of a Bactrian camel on a unicycle comes to mind.

Ashley had King bang to rights. A £5m hit would have put an end to Charles Green’s basket of assets. So King climbed down and engaged in a deal with his sworn enemy that he could not refuse.

If Lite don’t shift last year’s stock, they have to make reparation to Sports Direct by paying the full retail price for each unit. As the gullibillies rejoice they don’t realise that they are buying old rope from a dodgy salty sea dog.

When the devil in the detail eventually comes to light it will be revealed that King is bent over a barrel and is being caned for being a stupid spiv.

There will be only one winner in the Greek tragedy at Ibrox and it won’t be Homer King.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Craig Whyte’s Belt & Braces

I have been engaged in showcasing some of the articles that are indicative of my work. I’m also engaged in open consultation with my readers on the best way to fund our site going forward. My detractors refer to me as ‘bheggar’ but this is inaccurate on several levels. I provide a service and seek a modicum of recompense so that one can continue to provide this service from a foreign shore. I am in exile as a consequence of credible death threats. This site, our site, stopped being a hobby some time ago.

As I solicited input on a paywall and price points, a thought occurred to me on a ‘lurker’ amnesty. If only 10% of everyone who read and value this site were to contribute £5 as a one-off subscription per annum one could kick the paywall into the long grass. This quantum would not last long but as it would be supplemented by our site’s more generous sponsors it might just be tenable. I open this offer to all readers. The future of our site is in your hands. Please mark your contribution as JJ amnesty on PayPal so that I can distinguish any take up from other donations of a similar quantum. Two groups of readers will emerge:

1. Readers who value the service and wish to fund its continuation.

2. Readers such as Salted Popcorn (who is no longer welcome on our site) who contend that the many hours I spend approving their comments should be provided free.

If the latter group wins the day and the take up is disappointing then a paywall on the first of July is inevitable.

I digress. Today’s blog is fresh off the press as it were and bang up to date. Craig Whyte’s acquittal was a real slap in the face to Police Scotland, COPFS, the SFA and the Establishment. One prominent member of the latter group, Sir Bribe & Lie Murray, was exposed as a mendacious charlatan who will lie under oath with impunity. However his bribes and lies are no impediment to his eligibility to attend  Bute house for a Tartan hoe-down. As I wish to avoid any discussion of the SNP I will leave it to others to decide whether SBL is the kind of entrepreneur that should be encouraged in an independent Scotland. SBL has already bet one bank and lost, so why not go for the double with The Independent Bank of Scotland? Why not just make him the chairman of IBOS to allow him unfettered access? How about a large swathe of George Street and Charlotte Square at his disposal when the inevitable fire sale ensues?

However pause for one moment to consider what would have played out had a jury of Whyte’s peers found him guilty? What would have happened had Dave King’s Charlotte Fakeovers narrative of criminal collusion held true? Charles Green’s acquisition of a basket of assets would be considered the proceeds of a criminal conspiracy and would revert to BDO. Allow me to throw an exclusive into the mix. The joint liquidators have no interest in the assets. They made this clear to the serial adulterer while guests at Ibrox.

Someone who has an interest in these assets is none other than Craig Whyte. Whyte is an experienced asset-stripper. He would not have put his neck on the block without a back up plan to his ‘shit or bust’ strategy. Step forward ‘the floating charge.’

One can understand why readers cannot get their heads around this construct which is both an asset and a financial instrument. Kevin Bridges has quipped that Celtic fans following the Ibrox meltdown have effectively engaged in an ONC in business studies. The floating charge is from the HND syllabus.

The Bank of Scotland, which regularly oversaw Rangers running up annual losses of £35m – £65m, secured their burgeoning debt mountain  in 1999 by means of a floating charge on all assets classes. The stadium, the legendary car park, Murray Park, the double-dealing contracted players and all income were all within the purview of the Bank of Scotland.

Sir Bribe & Lie had hawked the season ticket income to the bank that liked to say Yes to Rangers. Gavin Masterton received a new hand-made suit as a payment in kind for the bank’s largesse. The corruption was hard-wired.

Donald Muir, the Red Adair of the world of finance, was employed by SBL to get the Rangers Dodo off his back. He managed to reduce the debt to £18m and change. However the floating charge remained. The floating charge gave BOS what is known as paramountcy. They would be first in the queue of creditors after the fire.

It’s significant at this juncture to stress that Whyte has been suspended from exercising executive authority in any UK plc for the maximum term of 15 years. However one of his final acts as a director was to arrange a £25m security over the assets of Rangers Football Club plc, which was renamed as RFC 2012 prior to liquidation. Whyte was also assigned the Bank of Scotland’s floating charge on all assets and as this includes income it encompasses earnings from sales and disposals at any future date.

Whyte’s iron-clad hold on the assets has a belt and braces.

BDO are caught between a rock and a hard place. HMRC are poised to claim £84m yet after Law Financial Ltd has taken its pound of flesh there may be nothing let. Law Financial Ltd co-opted one of Whyte’s companies, including his belt and braces, onto their corporate board

HMRC and the creditors may be in a conflict akin to bald men fighting over a comb. At which point it gets interestng. With nothing but a pot to piss in BDO might be compelled by the disgruntled creditors to pursue a claim to set aside the sale of assets to Green with a view to selling these assets by way of recompense.

Stewart Robertson might well assert that things are looking brighter at Ibrox now that the SFA have ridden a horse and coaches through UEFA FFP regulations, but should a complaint be lodged by the defeated Luxembourg minnows Lite will be out of Europe faster than a verse of the proscribed ‘Billy Boys.’ Anti-Irish invective is fine by the brown brogues at Hampden, but not at Nyon. One anticipates a lengthy suspension and a punitive fine. The blue massif just cannot help themselves. They are hard-wired recidivists.

How bright will the future be if BDO go after the assets Mr.Robertson? Will the future be the bright image of a Tesco Hypermarket?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The JJ Files: Volume III – The Bellshill Bounder

The article that I have chosen to showcase was first published on 22nd September 2015 which was a mere three days after the inception of our site. It is particularly prescient apropos Craig Whyte’s pursuit of a considerable quantum from the joint liquidators at BDO. It is also apposite in regard to nailing the mendacious Continuation Myth which is expounded by Neil Doncaster in his naked attempt to hawk four ‘Old Firm’ games to broadcasters. As all clubs benefit from these four games the chairmen have kept their mouths firmly shut as any iteration of  “The Punch & Judy Show” is good for business.

 

In my preceding three articles I have provided some background on Dave King, whom, in my considered opinion, is a white-collar career criminal. I also have misgivings about Paul Murray, whose naked ambition to rejoin the board led to him liaising with this criminal. I don’t see the point of John Gilligan, other than to make up the numbers in the unlikely event that Sports Direct Retail plc choose to make good on their appointment of two directors as per the loan agreement. According to a recent statement all directors are working pro bono, which I do not accept. King flies BA First from Johannesburg to London, and in business class from London to Glasgow, which is circa £10,500. This is paid for by the club. Murray & Gilligan have generous expense accounts that will lead to ‘benefit in kind’ taxes. These individuals are not running Rangers as a hobby. There will be bonuses for promotion, which is a shoe-in this year. Some might speculate as to why one has any need of an absent chairman who resides in South Africa, and who then flies in to make contradictory statements to the media. Everything King does is self-serving. Those who think he he is a man of wealth who will make an appreciable difference to Rangers, should acquaint themselves with my well-researched articles. Those who believe he is a rain-maker who will garner investment from elsewhere, should realize that he is still a pariah in business circles in South Africa for perpetrating numerous frauds.

King’s defence of these frauds is ingenious, as one would expect from any long-term confidence trickster. King does everything as part of a trust and then claims that he does not have executive power in this trust. Of course, to make it even more difficult to secure a conviction he uses what is known as The Russian Doll Model, where each trust is a subsidiary of another company in another locus. He then engages in The Revolving Door Model where the parent of these trusts changes by moving capital between them so as to not only evade tax and launder money with impunity, but to confer temporary nominal control. So if you wanted to challenge King on his fraudulent sale of software (to choose one from many examples), you would have to hire forensic accountants to discern which trust benefited from the fraud, and then attempt to link King to this trust, and then prove that he had executive control. One would then have to go to court in The British Virgin Islands/Guernsey/The Sunshine Islands and South Africa.

However King’s latest statement on Oldco, Rangers (1L), has led to some concern among informed Rangers fans. King stated that the current club is not the Traditional Rangers and that he and his board are looking at transferring the assets of RIFC to Rangers (1L) and then removing the latter from liquidation. He then disingenuously claimed, in an obvious pitch to the supporters, that his motivation was to silence detractors who claim that Rangers Lite are a new club with no claim on any history.

King is lying here on so many levels. The first lie in his statement is that he and his shyster board owns and controls the assets.  King has recently been subjected to the corporate equivalent of a warrant sale. It would be against his long-held traditions of parsimony to offer even 1p in the pound to creditors, which is about as much as he could afford. Then there is the complex legal argument of arranging to sist Oldco from liquidation. This is rarely possible, but would have little chance of success unless the creditors were paid in full. At this point HMRC are owed £14m and change, but if the BDO appeal to The Supreme Court in London is unsuccessful then another £70m would be outstanding.

Mr Whyte and his associates have been inordinately busy of late. Law Financial Plc has recently appointed Liberty Corporate Ltd, a British company whose only director is Whyte’s father, to its corporate board. Craig Whyte has stepped down as a director from the board of Law Financial Plc as he has been disqualified as a director for 15 years by Justice Tyre. This is highly significant.

There has also been activity in regard to The Rangers FC Group Ltd, which was formerly known as Wavetower, where four years of backdated accounts have now been posted which suggests that this formerly dormant company is now active.

A Companies House document, MG01 re Liberty Corporate, discloses that the Rangers FC Group Ltd granted a security in the form of a debenture over all of its assets, present and future. The main assets of Rangers FC Group Ltd were an 85% shareholding in Rangers Football Club Plc and rights under a floating charge over said club’s assets in security for whatever debt is owed to the RFC Group Ltd.

In summary, Law Financial Ltd own the debenture floating charge. This is being challenged in The Court of Session by BDO.

Whyte’s security on the assets is believed to be water-tight. The financial instrument was specifically designed to survive any liquidation event.

Whyte’s objective was to sideline the debt and subsequently float Rangers on the stock-market, thus profiting significantly.

If this was not enough for Rangers supporters to endure, they are now in the hands of someone much more dangerous than Whyte. Whyte has been indicted and charged in regard to an alleged premeditated crime. Mr King was also charged with racketeering in South Africa. It was alleged that Mr King had liaised with an underworld figure, via a go-between. The fact that only five witnesses were prepared to testify against King and Morris was dismissed by King as a coincidence. Mr Whyte has much to learn in regard to how real criminals play the game.

I have kept the last part of this imbroglio to the end as it is a complex affair. Liberty Corporate Ltd was a wholly owned subsidiary of Liberty Capital Ltd, which was a Craig Whyte’s British Virgin Islands (BVI) holding company.

Ticketus, who successfully won a court order against Whyte in London to the value of £17.1m, then proceeded to pursue the liquidation of Liberty Capital Ltd by order of The Eastern Caribbean Court. However the value of Liberty Corporate Ltd, which is now assigned to Law Financial, is currently unaffected by these liquidation proceedings.

Have the Rangers supporters not had enough of asset-strippers on the make and people like King impersonating Real Rangers Men? Apparently not. They are hard-wired to accept any Sugar Daddy on Edmiston Drive. All their team’s success was predicated on loans, tax-evasion and dual contract cheating. Criminals with a quantum burning a hole in their pocket are most welcome in the Blue Room.

The JJ Files: Volume II – Imagine There’s No Rangers

The JJ Files represent an opportunity to revisit some of the pieces which sparked robust debate in the Sitonfence Speakeasy. It is a showcase of my work. Should any lurkers wish to contribute having revisited my work, they can add their names to the forty-two who rallied to support our site. Forty-two from a regular daily audience of 8,000 to 10,000, whom revisit our site on three or four occasions to read the insightful comments. They could also be perceived as the precursor to the paywall that I’m considering. A paywall where each article costs 65p to access, which is the cover price of a Daily Rectum. To my business-trained mind the sports hacks are completely out of their depth when it comes to court cases and the corruption at Rangers, Rangers Lite, the SFA & the SPFL. This site can pierce the corporate veil.

Other than their award-winning Sports journalist, Keith Jackson, who writes a column once per week, they are not worth the candle. I have been quick to criticise  Mr Jackson for the shocking lie that all Lite players were assaulted by the marauding Hibs fans in the aftermath of a Scottish Cup Final. This was a blatatant reproduction of James Traynor’s poisoned rhetoric at its worse. When left to his own devices he can be entertaining if light fare is your bag.

The showcase of articles will be free at the point of delivery. During this consultation period I will solicit the views of my readers apropos the 65p access charge. I have pegged the price to appeal to the unwaged. I may reintroduce the Sunday Supplement, on demand, so that the unwaged can keep apprised of developments for 65p per week.

The following article was published as: Imagine There’s No Rangers.

 

 

During what became know as ‘The Journey’ did anyone other than those who attend Ibrox via muscle-memory actually miss Rangers?

1. Did one miss the mass unfettered anti-Irish racism?

2. Did one miss the veneration of a Ku Klux Klan leader who successfully pursued an agenda of slashing and maiming Irish émigrés?

3. Did one miss those who mock a potato famine and invite the Pope to have sexual congress with himself?

4. Did one miss the naked apartheid that is Monkey Mimicry?

5. Did one miss the challenge of Scott Brown on the field of play by an individual who exposed himself to an eleven years old girl as she walked down the street with her mother?

6. Did one miss the anti-Irish festival that is Forces Day?

7. Did one miss the lie that a renascent club can claim the titles won by a club that no longer exists.

8. Did one miss how a club in clear breach of FFP regulations is given a green light to participate in UEFA tournaments by a corrupt SFA?

Point 8 is a reprise of the corruption which occurred with the former club which played at Ibrox in 2011. Are the aforementioned points the symptoms of a deep-rooted Sectarian malaise at the former club that now find an outlet for their recidivism in Charles Green’s basket of assets, Rangers Lite?

Could one change the song from :

‘No-one likes us, we don’t care’ to:

‘No-one cares about us as we are largely irrelevant and beneath their contempt?’

Should we be rallying round the new club and hugging ‘bears’ in the street? Forgive me if I for one demur, although many of my best friends and family members are Rangers fans whom I would not hesitate to hug. The perceived wisdom is that the majority of Rangers fans are decent God-fearing family men, but if that is the case why do they transform into what Donald Findlay referred to as ’90 minute bigots’.

Mr. Findlay is now engaging in lifting the rocks on the Ibrox cesspool. One now finds that The Rangers Juggernaut that cut a swathe through Scottish Football was actually a debt-addled junkie on skid row. The methadone was supplied by an odious cabal of Masons at The Bank of Scotland. If anyone has any savings in this Rangers-facing casino, in all its guises, I suggest they withdraw them immediately. Starve the bastards who provided the armaments to assassinate fair play in Scottish Football.

The debt-addled junkie may have visited the Salvation Army and be born again, but I’m not anticipating any Christian fellowship any time soon.

Is Rangers Lite a club run by pariahs for pariahs?

There are those who excuse the systemic criminal behaviour by stating that Rangers Lite merely reflects the social mores of the community it represents. I disagree. Rangers Lite fans the flames and reinforces the recidivist attitudes.

I note that Alex Thomson of Channel Four has been tipped off that the SFA won’t act to strip titles should The Supreme Court uphold the Inner Houses’ ruling that EBT were instruments of tax evasion. If that is the case a root and branch clear out of the SFA is required. At the very least starve the SFA of funds by not supporting the fiasco that is our National team. Let the mendacious piece of shit that is Stewart Regan and Continuation Doncaster know that their days are numbered at The Scottish Cup Final.

I am a late convert to the case for title-stripping. I took the view that Rangers had gone to the wall and that there was no point in flogging a dead horse. However I did not figure on the lie of Continuation having traction and SMSM critical mass. The Continuation Lie underpins the ‘We are The People Supremacy’ at Ibrox.

This supremacy is however built on the sand of tax evasion and a myth that has been exposed time and time again in the highest courts in Scotland. Rangers Lite are not the club formed in 1872 which was incorporated in 1899. If Third Lanark was rejuvenated and chose to play at Ibrox in light blue, could they make a cogent claim for the history of Rangers?

The idea is preposterous. Scottish Football was fine when the new club was in the wilderness. There was a better distribution of titles and higher attendances. The insidious influence of the gaming industry was not a factor in what many will look back upon as The Halcyon Days of Scottish Football.

During ‘The Journey’ we were led to believe that the new club would make friends along the way. All they did was appal a new audience. If the PFA Scotland Awards are indicative, Rangers Lite are largely irrelevant.

The Secret Diary of Pedro Caixinha

I’m up with the larks for the 6 a.m. mass at Bearsden convent. The kids are literally climbing the walls of our suite at The Premier Inn. José is trying to fit his twin brother Mosè into the trouser press. They are driving me potty; which reminds me to check on Doo Doo at training after I rinse their pink receptacles in the toilet. The baby, Henrik, whom I called after my hoops hero, has not stopped crying since his baptism. I realise that The Lisbon Lions Mobiles are becoming a bit stale but chin up young prince called after the King of Kings.

Henrik Larsson, Henrik Larsson, Henrik Larsson is the King of Kings.”

As I am dressing in the dark I mistakenly pull on my Celtic replica shirt. I don’t realise it until I turn up at training. Shop steward Lee Wallace is the first to clear his throat. I check to see if my Spanish Fly is undone. All present and correct, or as my English tutor has suggested: spectacles, testicles, wallet. The club are desperate for me to stop blessing myself and would prefer that I revert to this aide-memoire.

I thought of sending one of the kids, young Billy Gimour, round to the Glasgow Airport Shop to pick up a 32 Teds shirt, but I was told that it had closed down as  Dave King was pilfering stock left, right, and centre. Young Billy has apparently been sold but if truth be told I cannot tell one Billy from the next. Is everyone in Glasgow called Billy? Where is their sense of imagination? Their running with the bulls spirit? Which reminds me that I must get my haemorrhoids attended to after a touching cloth incident at Pamplona.

Training is becoming a bilingual nightmare. The Scottish lads are having difficulty mastering:

Arrumar o fuckwit do parque” which translates to hoof it up the park fuckwit. And here was me naively trying to introduce a passing game. John Brown came by to wish us good luck. With his thinning red hair and buffed brown brogues he reminded of the time young José discovered the Swan Vestas and presented young Mosè with a potty of poo with a match stuck firmly in the mire.

As he caught site of my Celtic top I could hear him mutter ‘fucking taig’ under his breath which I am assured is effectively a term of affection compared to some of the more robust rhetoric in the Brown lexicon. I must remember not to bless myself when Brown is galvanising the troops: Spectacles, testicles, wallet

I must admit my surprise that Campbell Ogilvie did not manage to squeeze out a few more UEFA coefficient points to spare our blushes. The People, as in WATP, (Nós somos as pessoas) will not be pleased to discover that UEFA consider us to be a new club formed from a confection of assets. There goes our history of bribes, blackmail, tax evasion, dual contracts and unparalleled domestic success. I have a mind to call the ASA for a continuation fix.

After a hard day at Auchenhowie and an evening Novena at St. Aloysius, I used my Iphone app to summon a black cab, which promptly arrived emblazoned with ‘Uber Hail Hail’ livery. It must be a Glasgow thing. The Spanish Butcher was rocking. I ordered a Cervejas and quickly chased it down with a Super Bock.  I noticed that The Bellshill Bounder, Craig Whyte, was holding court with some suits. I overheard talk of a floating charge being given paramountcy. If I were not mistaken he sounded as if he knew what he was talking about. Could another Exocet be heading to Ibrox?

Note to self. Cancel the call to the ASA. Being a new club has its privileges. Time to get back to The Trouble & Strife for some I should Coco. I’m really getting the hang of the lingo. If only my wife knew a different way of dancing when we are getting jiggy jiggy. I’m pretty sure the Samba was not what the Catholic Chutch had in mind when they introduced the rhythm method. If we have any more kids we might have to live in a shoe, preferably a brown brogue.

Nós somos as pessoas!

The JJ Files: Volume I

On 29 September 2015 I published the piece that follows this introduction. Note how I was ahead of the curve in identifying that the Coup d’état at Rangers Lite was executed by a cabal of carpetbaggers acting in concert. The Takeover Panel of Mergers & Acquisitions will not rest until career criminal King makes an offer for the shares that are not within his gift, or he is suspended from holding any executive office in the U.K. for the maximum period of 15 years.

 

As much as I welcomed Mr Winnifrith’s podcast, I must take issue with any suggestion that Dave King has received any approval or endorsement from The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The facts of the matter are that a series of complaints on King’s manipulation of the share price of RIFC, that were submitted in October 2014, were not upheld for further review. However there are other complaints made in January to the FCA. These complaints were made when the share price was at an all time low of 18p on 31/12/14 which led to their acquisition by King’s concert party soon after.

There are therefore two complaints that have yet to be determined by the FCA:

1.Did King and his concert party breach the 30% ownership threshold?

2. Did King manipulate the share price prior to their acquisition?

I have personally written to the FCA urging them to take another look at King’s share manipulion

King has ‘previous’ in share manipulation and in surreptitiously breaching the 30% threshold so as to renege on his obligations to make an offer for all remaining shares, as per the regulations of The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (and The London Stock Exchange Alternative Investment Market). Shares held in his daughter’s name suddenly breached the 30% threshold and proceeded to a 76% holding as a consequence of an acquisition on her behalf  by an ‘anonymous’ third party. Everyone knew that this was the handiwork of Dave King. Ian Gregory Morris, in his capacity as MMI chairman, failed to answer questions on this obvious breach of the JSE rules and regulations. Morris bluffed and blustered on King’s artifice, then quickly reverted to type with a slew of fanciful bullet points about growth and profits, accompanied by a one line statement that no dividends would be paid.

Those who have paid attention to Paul Murray’s statements would have noted his intention to raise capital via ISDX. I agree with Winnifrith’s analysis that a figure north of £15m was the target. I also concur that there is no possibility of any listing when the ownership of assets is in dispute.

I disagree with Winnifrith’s assertion that ownership issues will be resolved by the end of 2016. I have no problem with his assertion that the assets could revert to BDO.

Which leads me to the obvious question. What is the Plan B of the shyster board? Winnifrith calculated that they would require at least £15m to balance the books, maintain Ibrox and provide £1m for players for next season in the Scottish Premiership. King has referred to soft loans, but no-one in his concert party has access to this kind of funding.

Mr Winnifrith reviewed austerity measures such as selling players and closing down the training facilities/academy at Auchenhowie.

The former would be a problem as 10 members in the squad can agree a pre-contract with other clubs in January, with no fee. As for the £665,000 in four acquisitions, only Tavernier and possibly Waghorn would have resale value, but not enough to make any appreciable difference. In my opinion Mr Warburton would vigorously oppose any attempt to sell either player in January or the 2016 close season.

The latter makes fiscal sense. With the ownership of this prized asset in dispute would it not be better to use it now as one may not be able to do so in the future?

In a matter of months the ramifications of King’s lies will hit home. A decision will have to be made on the £4.5m in loans that are due in December. There is no possibility of repaying them. The improved match-day income, ST and ticket sales should sustain operations until January. Getting by from one match day to the next in 2016 will not be tenable.

The AGM in December should be instructive. King will fly in at great expense to candy-coat the austerity.

Meanwhile Level 5 will issue positive spin to soften the media impact.

Paul Murray had a seven year plan of organic growth and CL participation by 2022. Will he now review his plan and increase the timeline to a minimum of a decade?

Terminate With Extreme Prejudice

For those of my readers that are unfamiliar with my circumstances this piece should be instructive. A police source has informed me that at least three UDA members are party to a plot to assassinate your humble correspondent with prejudice.  Apparently this involves all three discharging all six bullets from their revolvers. Alternatively should I appear on a flight manifest on an incoming flight to Glasgow I will be identified by staff and shot dead as I exit the airport.

Should I ever return to my home town the crew from Ayrshire will be informed and mobilised. If I were attending a funeral I would still be fair game.

When one of my children went online to source material for a Father’s Day e-card she was redirected to a site where what is purported to being her father is wearing a gimp mask. She is only eight years old. I have been informed that she is a whore who deserves to die of cervical cancer.

Trust me. You have no idea what I have to deal with!
