“Charlotte Fakes” – Red Herrings for Rangers or Smoking Guns for Green and Whyte?

Over recent days various documents have appeared online under the name “Charlotte Fakes” seeming to refer to the dealings involving Craig Whyte, Charles Green and Rangers.

I have not commented on them in detail so far for various reasons.

First of all, I have been very busy and it would take time, from what I have seen of them, for proper analysis of the documents.

Secondly, until things are made clear, the veracity of the documents is uncertain. That is not to say that they are fakes, or doctored, or as in the case of invoices involving Rangers and Ticketus, created using clip-art!

At first look they seem to have the appearance of being genuine, but until confirmed either way that can only be guesswork. If however the documents have been created to mislead, then that is a lot of effort, for uncertain effect.

Thirdly, the source of the documents themselves, if genuine, is important. Are they being leaked by a party or someone close to the issue? Were they found by legitimate investigation or discovered abandoned in a bin? Has someone hacked a computer, or broken in to a filing cabinet?

I have no idea and therefore, until the provenance is established, I won’t devote the time to detailed analysis, simply to avoid wasting my efforts should the documents turn out to be as genuine as the Zinoviev Letter or the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

But I must say that the alleged Minutes of a Sevco 5088 Ltd Board Meeting held in May 2012 which have now been posted by “Charlotte Fakes” mentions some familiar names and a couple of new factors.

The minute alleges a meeting between Aidan Earley, Craig Whyte and Charles Green where it was agreed to appoint Messrs Whyte and Earley as directors in place of Mr Green. It was also agreed to allot shares in Sevco 5088 Ltd to two companies.

The first of these is Willow International Ltd. That company has been mentioned on this blog before.

In September 2011 Merchant House Group PLC issued a Stock Exchange statement which included the following:-

MHG, the financial services group, is pleased to announce that it has issued 400,843,744 new ordinary shares of 0.01 pence per share in the Company (“New Ordinary Shares”) pursuant to the following:

–      208,500,000 New Ordinary Shares to Willow International Limited (“Willow”) (held by Pershing Nominees Limited)`at a price of 0.05 pence per share pursuant to conversion of £104,250 of the New Convertible Loan Notes* (“NCLNs”) issued by the Company to Liberty Capital Limited, which subsequently transferred £104,250 of loan principal to Willow, a company domiciled in the Seychelles (“Conversion Issue”).

Following the Conversion Issue, there are now £171,750 of NCLNs in issue, all of which are held by Liberty Capital Limited;

Following the issue, allotment and admission of the New Ordinary Shares, the following shareholders will, where known, be interested in three per cent or more of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company as follows:

Liberty Capital Limited (held by Prism Nominees Ltd) 18.23%

Willow International Limited (held by Pershing Nominees Ltd) 7.62%

(I have omitted the rest of the list).

Regular readers will know that Merchant House Group is closely connected to Mr Whyte.

Liberty Capital Ltd is the BVI based company which Ticketus is seeking to wind up shortly. It is owned by Mr Whyte.

Willow International Limited is a company based in the Seychelles. According to the alleged Board Minute it was to be a major shareholder in Sevco 5088 Ltd as nominee for Liberty Capital Markets Ltd.

Liberty Capital Markets Ltd has also been mentioned here before. There was a company of that name dissolved in 2010. Its sole director was Mr Wulstan Earley, brother of Aidan Earley.

A new company of the same name came into being after the dissolution of the original Liberty Capital Markets Ltd – its sole director is Wulstan Earley.

Liberty Capital Markets Ltd should not be confused with the multi-billion dollar company “Liberty Capital Markets” and it would be unfair I am sure to suggest that there was any intention to create any such confusion.

As for “Korissa Capital Inc.” which was to be allotted 5 million shares in Sevco 5088 Ltd, I suspect we will find that was incorporated in some exotic corner of the world. One can only wonder to whom it was closely connected…

———————————————-

Who Benefits from these Documents Being Publicised Now?

They appear to show how closely Mr Whyte was connected to Mr Green. Bearing in mind that Mr Green has been evicted from Ibrox as a result of this being rumoured, and that these connections are all still being investigated as I write, it could be thought that their effect might be as follows (and I do appreciate that is a few caveats!):-

1                     They are being used by opponents of Mr Green to ensure that his involvement with Rangers is at an end;

2                     They are being used by Mr Whyte to provide him with leverage for the claims which are to be progressed by Worthington Group PLC against The Rangers Football Club Ltd (formerly Sevco Scotland Ltd);

3                     They are being used to embarrass the Pinsent Masons investigation into Green/Whyte, if it was on the point of clearing the former CEO;

4                     They are fakes which, when that fact is revealed, will catapult Mr Green back, with his name cleared, into Ibrox;

5                     They are being leaked in an effort to force the Scottish football authorities to take action against Rangers for breaching undertakings it is understood to have given to obtain an SFA membership last year;

6                     Or a combination of all of the above.

Even if not genuine, the documents shed some light on how certain sectors of the business world operate – the effort and energy goes into shifting bits of paper representing debts and shares around from company to company, till no one is quite sure who owns what.

It would be wrong to suggest that this effort goes into creating financial circumstances designed to confuse and to extract money from unsophisticated investors. Instead it is a means for clever trading to increase wealth by entirely legitimate and fair means.

The problem with the Rangers takeovers, by Whyte and Green, is that these have been done in the full glare of scrutiny, and scrutiny which can be shared easily with many people. I suspect that deals to squeeze money out of distressed companies, to move assets into new companies, leaving debts in old, to swopping shares for bonds of varying value and substance, happen day in and day out – often done by the equivalent of Del Boy Trotter, but with more expensive suits and less moral fibre.

But that is for another day.

Instead we wait to see what more “Charlotte” has to say and, once any of the mainstream media raise the issue and provoke denials or acceptance of the documents as genuine, detailed scrutiny of what they refer to.

    I have carried this from previous post as it is too important to ignore.

    Niall Walker
    May 18, 2013 at 4:43 pm
    Marty,
    P.G.Wodehouse, who had his stint in a Nazi concentration camp, was asked if he hated the Nazis. Wodehouse’s answer, was: I don’t hate in the plural.

    @Niall Walker from Ecojon

    Obviously my definition of a concentration camp differs from yours.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2011/aug/26/pg-wodehouse-denied-collaborator

    PG Wodehouse was questioned by MI5 as a suspected collaborator for broadcasting from Berlin during the second world war. The creator of Jeeves protested that he was shocked and dismayed at the criticism his broadcasts had provoked in Britain.

    How the cosy world of Bertie Wooster collided with harsh reality is revealed in MI5 files released today at the National Archives. “I thought that people, hearing the talks, would admire me for having kept cheerful under difficult conditions,” he said in a statement for MI5 in 1944.

    Wodehouse was living in France when war broke out. He was taken prisoner when Germany invaded and sent to an internment camp in the German town of Tost, Upper Silesia. He described how, “as he was playing in a cricket match” on 21 June 1941, he was told to pack his bags and was put on a train to Berlin.

    He was put up at the city’s Adlon hotel, and was paid to make a series of broadcasts, mainly for American listeners, describing his life as an internee. He claimed he was motivated by gratitude over letters sent by fans from the US.

    The Wodehouse files are among a number released at the National Archives on people regarded by MI5 as potential “British renegades”, including collaborators, stool pigeons and possible subversives.

    After the Berlin broadcasts Wodehouse and his wife, Ethel, moved to Paris, where they stayed at German expense at the Bristol hotel. It was there that he was interrogated after the liberation of Paris.

    • ecojon

      In fact looking at the Wodehouse reply it reeks of deflection – no lies but just isn’t the truth and hides the enormity of the actual true storyand the cowardice and self-interest that lies at the heart of it.

      Just exactly what is happening with RFC at the moment and their apologists.

      • Niall Walker

        He was knighted in 1975, and if you had ever listened to his broadcasts you would realize the accusations of collaboration were nonsense.

        Do you think it is acceptable to hate people you have never met and to assume every individual within a group is the same ?

        I hope not.

        • ecojon

          @ Niall Walker

          You just don’t get it do you or is it your usual deflection carried to a sickening level this time – you said he did a stint in a concentration camp. It appears according to MI5 he was well looked after in hotels by his Nazi paymasters,

          You’re like quite a few trolls that we see on here – you just don’t know when to stop digging. Perhaps it’s got something to do with bonus payments.

          • Niall Walker

            ecojon,

            He spent one year in an internment camp, do a bit more research and curb the offense it is nauseating.

            He and his wife were living semi-permanently at Le Touquet, in France. The town was captured by the Germans on May 22, 1940, and on July 21, he, with the other male aliens in Le Touquet, were sent off to internment-centers, first at Huy in Belgium and then at Tost in Upper Silesia. His internment lasted until June 21, 1941, on which date he was released (solely because he was almost sixty) and was sent to Berlin, where he was joined by his wife (who had been detained in France).

            http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v07/v07p345_Hall.html

            • ecojon

              @Niall Walker

              You truly have lost your trolley on this one – suddenly he wasn’t in a concentration camp and you now admit as I pointed out that he was only in an internment camp. Most people in a concentration camp would have given their eye teeth to be in an internment camp.

              They didn’t get that opportunity and so most ended up losing their life. You are using an apologist article from some American Historical Review publication dated 1987 which certainly doesn’t surprise me in your case.

              I see you totally ignore the fact that after he had done his paid broadcasts and being kept in one of Berlin’s best hotels his Nazi paymasters moved him to Paris and paid for him to stay, with his wife, for the rest of the war. That’s the kind of thing they usually did with foreign nationals – I don’t think.

              I’ll stick with the grilling he got from MI5 at the end of the war as the factual one and add a bit more from my original quoted Guardian source which makes the position clear beyond doubt as to the ‘rigours’ of his internment camp and what his position was with regard to possible prosecution for treason.

              ‘Wodehouse said that, while interned at Tost, he completed his novel Joy in the Morning, and wrote Full Moon, Spring Fever, and Uncle Dynamite. {I suppose I should concede that could be compared to the forced labour of the Death Camps}

              ‘The writer told MI5: “I would like to conclude by saying that I never had any intention of assisting the enemy and that I have suffered a great deal of mental pain as the result of my action.”

              ‘MI5 decided that the broadcasts were not pro-German and had been unlikely to assist the enemy, and decided against prosecution.

              ‘However, a memo of a 1946 meeting between an M15 officer and the then director of public prosecutions, Sir Theobald Mathew, reveals that his case was re-evaluated after the war. “The director said that he now takes the view that, if Wodehouse ever comes to this country, he should be prosecuted,” the officer recorded.

              ‘Wodehouse moved to the US in 1945 and lived there until his death in 1975, aged 93.’

              I notice that you state that he was released from the internment camp because he was nearing 60. Actually in the concentrations camps they released them from 1 week old to 100+ by gassing them. Isn’t he really lucky he wasn’t sent there as you originally stated to reinforce some piece of deflection you were intent on.

        • ecojon

          @Niall Walker

          Yes they all seem to get knighted – does the name Blunt mean anything to you?

          • Niall Walker

            To compare Blunt with PG is laughable, one was a spy and the other was not, talk about deflection, maybe you hate ALL who get a Knighthood.

            • ecojon

              @ Niall Walker

              Just your usual deflection and I’m afraid ignorance. Read what the Director of Public Prosecutions advised MI5 in 1946 and you’ll see that if he came back to Britain from the US he should be prosecuted for his collaboration.

            • Ian403

              Niall,
              Blunt was a relation of the Queen Mother.
              Blunt was honoured AFTER they knew he was a spy…Probably as early 1948 within Royal circles, & certainly long before it became public.He was only stripped of his Knighthood AFTER it became Public Knowledge.

              It is another area which is murky, he was MI5 & was tied into the Duke of Windsor pro Nazi scandal, going to retrieve suspect documents. concerning the Duke.

              The British Government kept his confession SECRET for FIFTEEN YEARS, it came out through an American source.

              It would seem it was a combination of who he was related to, as well as what & who he knew.

            • coatbrigbhoy

              do you mean people like SIR jim’il’fix it ?
              Half the bankers that ran the country into the ground will be knighted before they die,the others will just have to settle for lordships

        • Niall a Knighthood is not a guarantee of good character.
          Sir Minty ??????

          • Niall Walker

            Mac,

            He was knighted supposedly 30 years after MI5 considered him a collaborator, not before.

            It kinda blows the whole myth out of the water, but he was not in a concentration camp, only an internment camp.

            However an internment camp is effectively a concentration camp in my eyes.

            • ecojon

              @Niall

              Are you actually for real? An internment camp is the same as a concentration camp in Nazi Germany in your eyes.

              I think it’s time you had a reality check and discover what planet you’re living on because its sounds like Uranus to me.

              While millions were exterminated in Nazi concentrations camps the biggest danger faced by Wodehouse was sharpening his pencil to write all the stuff that he was freely allowed to write in his internment camp which he was released from under the Geneva Convention rules.

              Fyi the Geneva Convention was not applied in concentration camps – I’m beginning to wonder just how much of an apologist you actually are.

            • Ian403

              Niall,
              It does not turn Fact into Myth.
              He like the others, was socially acceptable, that’s all.
              Whitewash is a Brilliant thing, it is applied in many areas to cover up scandal.
              There was no appitite to prosecute, that does not make for innocence..

            • gortnamona

              Niall
              ” However an internment camp is effectively a concentration camp in my eyes.”

              As far as N. Ireland goes I couldn’t agree with you more.

              Long Kesh Concentration Camp commemorated in song by
              The Wolfe Tones

            • There was definitely a difference in the way figures of the British Establishment were treated. I don’t know much about interment camps in Nazi occupied Europe, but Colditz Castle was not as the Establishment would like us to believe a POW camp for prisoners who kept trying to escape. These were shot while trying to escape. It was to contain POW’s who had some clout in the British Establishment, the privileged many, if you take into account the amount of blackguards of the aristocracy who had Nazi connections and inclinations. Unless Wodehouse was working for British Intelligence or under gunpoint, then he should have been aware of the consequences of his broadcasts for the Nazis in a propaganda sense. Although from the same class I don’t think he was as stupid as Bertie Wooster. Or maybe he had a ‘Jeeves’ that ‘saved his bacon’ and stopped him paying the full price for what was in fact collaboration, if not outright treachery, with the enemy.
              The real fact is, no matter what we are spoon fed from the ‘history writing class’, is that he was a patrician and was treated in a manner that was common for his class and his innocence or guilt is a side matter in this bigger question of class conflict. I wonder what the Soviets thought of his kindness to the Nazi propaganda machine.
              I’ve just had a thought, could it be the schools they go to?
              What ho!
              ( I mean this in a Bertie Wooster way, not gangsta rap)

            • “…an internment camp is effectively a concentration camp in my eyes.”

              What a total arse you are. People in internment camps were fed & watered and even (in Wodehouse’s case) allowed to carry on as before, albeit it within enclosed surroundings, not starved to death, shot or made to build the very chambers in which they were gassed in their millions.

              There was me thinking that your “A club isn’t a club unless it’s a member of a club” comment & your woeful ignorance of the duties of company directors were a low water mark, then you come out with that crap?

              Have a word with yourself.

      • Niall Walker

        Where did you get your evidence, because I have evidence that contradicts yours.

        • ecojon

          @Niall Walker

          More deflection 🙂

          My evidence is bigger than your’s small boy because I actually quote the source in my post which is the professional way to do it when not attempting to deflect and employ smoke and mirrors.

          Reminds me of the time Adam got himself into a terrible fankle quoting from an official report which he used to attack Celtic. I immediately challenged him on it and asked for his source and he couldn’t remember it just a short time later.

          So what’s your source then?

          • Niall Walker

            I posted it, and the Government did not give him a Knighthood in 1975 knowing he was a collaborator, my evidence adds up, yours makes no sense.

            • ecojon

              @ Niall Walker

              Oh what a defector you are – let’s not lose sight of how this started. You said he was in a concentration camp to prove some point with Marty.

              I pointed out that he hadn’t been and was only ever interned – for a short period. He went on to have a lovely war paid for by the Nazis to make broadcasts and then he was retired to a Paris hotel with his wife – again paid by the Nazis – until he was liberated from that hellhole by the Allies. He must have been sh*tting bricks wondering if he was going to be put up against a wall and summarily shot.

              You evidence adds up to someone with a closed mind but that’s your problem not mine. I’ll stick with the truth 🙂

            • Niall Walker

              ecojon,

              I posted a comment by PG, the comment was the topic, you then took a hissy fit and started spouting about PG being a collaborator, at this point in time I began to lose the will to live, and am now kicking away the chair.

              Its a difference of opinion, one that will be shown on TV soon in a new drama, I accept the difference between an internment and concentration camp, but I do not accept he was a collaborator, and neither did the government who knighted him.

              He was a literary genius.

            • What kind of crimes does being a literary genius give you a dispensation for? For a chap who earned his living by using his imagination, his lack of thought is beyond belief. If making intercontinental radio broadcasts for the enemy is not collaboration then I don’t know what is. Ecojon may take exception to the difference over internment and concentration camps, but I cannot see, just because he was given a knighthood several years later, Wodehouse that is, not ecojon, how you can say he is not to be regarded as at least a collaborator. MI 5 knew about Blunt, but he was allowed to work as janitor or is that caretaker of the Queens paintings for years after he was caught out,look it up on wiki. And when you do, I am sure you will realise how weak your point that he received a knighthood and therefore he didn’t collaborate is.

          • Niall Walker

            Your source is not evidence, your source is your source, do you do much debating ?

            • ecojon

              @ Niall Walker

              Not usually with idiots and as usual, when I do, I realise what a waste of time it is.

              My source if you had bothered to read it cites where the evidence comes from. As you obviously haven’t bothered to read the article the evidence comes from MI5 files released by the National Archives in 2011 and part of that evidence was based on MI5’s interview of Wodehouse towards the end of the war in 1944.

              The Wodehouse file was one of those kept on people regarded by MI5 as potential “British renegades”, including collaborators, stool pigeons and possible subversives.

              Your source looks like a whacky American apologist magazine 🙂

            • ecojon

              @Niall

        • david

          Hawkeye, read Colditz by Henry Chancellor.
          I dont know where you got the impression that it imprisoned Special Category ( ie Elite ) prisoners.
          There were other nationalities there, including many French and Poles who, along with their British comrades,displayed great bravery and ingenuity in their escapes, including the building of a glider which was never used. Airey Neave escaped, only to be murdered by the INLA years later.
          No time for PG Wodehouse though because of one of his best-known quotes. I am sure the Nazis felt he was of some value.

    • Kenny

      I recall that William Joyce, Lord Haw Haw, willingly broadcast to Britain and it’s dominions on behalf of the Nazis and when he was captured he was hung for treason despite being an Irish national.
      I don’t thing PG Wodehouse broadcasted propaganda but there was clearly value in it for the Nazis. Didn’t he live most of his life in Florida after the war?

      • Wasn’t he pro partition? ie British

        • ecojon

          @MacTomas

          Just had a look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Joyce

          He was hanged for treason by the British as a result of his wartime activities, being believed to owe allegiance to the UK by his possession of a British passport, a document to which, ironically, he was not entitled. The Court of Appeal and the House of Lords upheld his conviction on one count of high treason.

          Unusual for Irish Roman Catholics, both Joyce and his father were strongly Unionist. Joyce later said that he had aided the Black and Tans during the Irish War for Independence and had become a target of the Irish Republican Army,

          The Wiki piece explains a bit about the legal complications surrounding his nationality given that he was born in New York and possibly relied on US Citizenship to save his neck although I could see possible flaws in that argument if he had been deported to the US. However he is of no interest to me but thought I would post the info as the issue was raised.

        • david

          He was pro partition but most definitely Irish.

        Prove he was what you claim, you don’t own the truth.

        • ecojon

          @ Niall Walker

          I’m seriously beginning to doubt that you can actually read – check firstly the article I originally cited and also the quote I used above but will repeat: ‘A memo of a 1946 meeting between an M15 officer and the then director of public prosecutions, Sir Theobald Mathew, reveals that his case was re-evaluated after the war. “The director said that he now takes the view that, if Wodehouse ever comes to this country, he should be prosecuted,” the officer recorded.

          Wodehouse never returned to Britain from America – I wonder why that was?

          • Niall Walker

            So they gave him a knighthood in 1975 because he was a proven collaborator, that really makes sense.

            • ecojon

              @ Niall

              They gave a knighthood to Fred the Shred and DM – I think for both it must have been for their services to banking 🙂

              I have no say in making awards and in general don’t agree with the lack of transparency in the process nor the amount awarded to time-serving civil servants for doing their cushy jobs and being paid very well in the process with gold-plated pensions at the end-up.

              Plenty of others more deserving IMO for awards.

            • Felpen

              I do not recall mi5 giving any one a knighthood!

            • ecojon

              @Niall

              He had close links with the Royal Family so who knows how his name came up and was proposed and that has always been part of the problem with honours – a lack of transparency in the case of many recipients.

              It may also have been something to do with the fact that he died 10/11 days after the award – it’s the Establishment way of rewarding one of its own and don’t ever make the mistake of not recognising the strong thread running through the Establishment that favoured or was sympathetic to Hitler and fascism although many used the threat of Boshevism as the excuse.

              The other thing is that the MI5 files weren’t released by the time of the award so the detail wasn’t known and 30 years after the end of WWII the country faced fresh problems and a new age so he was looked-after especially as his end was nigh. Worth remembering that Callaghan refused a knighthood for him in 1967 because of the Nazi links but, of course, Callaghan would have access to the security service files unlike 99.99% of Britons.

            • coatbrigbhoy

              Maybe the Queen felt obliged to knight him to keep the German (majority) branch of the British Monarchy happy,

          • Niall Walker

            I will say it one last time, the evidence is the words he uttered, stop quoting MI5 as if they were some unbiased judge, study the EVIDENCE.

            • Hold on Nigel…. you cited his 1975 Knighthood as evidence to his faithfulness to the British state………..can’t have it both ways.

            • Niall Walker

              Mac,

              I have stated right from the get go the only real evidence is his own words, and the Knighthood is evidence that HM govt like me considered him not guilty of collaboration.. MI5 in 1946 considered him to be a collaborator and they had the same evidence, its all a matter of interpretation.

              The consideration of such an important person as yourself Niall, must come as a great comfort to PG’s family.

              First the knighthood from HM government and then the clincher of your endorsement.

              Niall,
              “Stop quoting MI5 as Evidence because HE said no”
              WHAT? The Security Forces decided there was a case to answer.
              Now is this Factual.. Or Not?
              Please supply the EVIDENCE to support Innocence.

              Before you try the innocent until proven onus switch, that does not apply in debate.

              YOU have made a statement,, now advance proof, if no proof exists, advance an argument based on your Judgement or knowledge of pertinent facts to support your position.

        • ecojon

          @ Niall

          I’ll stick with the judgement of the Director of Public Prosecutions that if he returned from America he should be prosecuted for his activities on behalf of his Nazi paymasters..

          • Niall Walker

            ecojon,

            If you are unable to distinguish between emotive judgements made in 1946 by a jingoistic arm of govt and objective reflection some 30 years later, then that is not my problem. The plain fact is there was no evidence to suggest PG was a collaborator, and you keep maintaining your source is evidence, it is not.
            The evidence is available, just read it or listen to it and make your own judgement, anyone with a functioning brain can see he was not collaborating with the Nazis.

            If there had been anyone real evidence then the Crown would have been informed and he would not have been given a knighthood.

            End of spurious debate.

            • JimBhoy

              East Fife fans must be loving you fella…..

            • “…you keep maintaining your source is evidence, it is not.”

              You keep maintaining that because Wodehouse said he wasn’t a collaborator that is evidence of his innocence, and that he was given a Knighthood is more proof.

              Then again, a few posts back you maintained that you had provided “evidence” that BDO wouldn’t pursue a Gratuitous Alienation, when in fact it was only your opinion.

        • Ian403

          Niall,
          Nor do you own the truth.

          As a reader of both, I think the onus is on You now.

          The guy was a traitor with Talent & Connections. Ecojon has posted factual evidence of this.

          as a lover of debate you should now counter with Evidence to support your standpoint…”Prove he was what you claim, you don’t own the truth” seems petulant to me.

          • Niall Walker

            Ian,

            Ecojon has posted no factual evidence that proves he was a collaborator, he has provided evidence that MI5 in 1946 considered him a collaborator, and others disagreed. Now do you think this disagreement is factual evidence for my case or not ?

            If not, then you are mistaken, and since I never made the claim, the onus is on you to prove he was a collaborator, and not up to me to prove his innocence.

            • Ian403

              Niall.
              That is not so.
              I entered the debate at a later stage.
              I read what was available, applied my knowledge of Post war History to the discussion, decided you were in the wrong, & asked for an explaination of Your position.
              Your answer is a deflection.
              Please answer ME, not Ecojon.

              This is not Debate any more, you seem upset & have taken it into your personal realm which is a strange development.

              I will debate history & innocents prosecuted , unfairly, while the government deflects or ignores knowledge of other guilty parties who were allowed to live in a protected state despite their guilt.
              I was actually looking forward to it.
              The era involved allowed Nazis & Collaborators to be ignored or reformed, as were Scientists & Doctors, all Nazi Party Members, but went on to serve the West against Communism..The American Space Programme is based on V Bomb scientists as an example.

              Japan was a war criminal state but needs must & they were treated gently & rehabilitated as a bastion against the eastern threat, as was Western Germany.
              Your author’s importance diminishes in the face of the Reality at that time.
              A less famous person would have felt the full force of the Law.

    I commented on him in a previous post.

    • Ed Paisley

      @marty
      I’m sure you are right Marty, but as Stephen Fry said about his love of the music of Richard Wagner, we must separate the man from the art.

        • ecojon

          @Ed Paisley

          I would have had no problem in separating the ‘art and head from his body.

          • Ed Paisley

            I agree!
            Just finished reading a book by Anthony Faramus (Journey into Darkness), who was an 18 year old Jerseyman deported to France for stealing money from the occupying Nazis. He was reported to the Nazis by Jersey policemen and delivered to the Nazis by Jersey officials. He ended up in Buchenwald and the horrors he describes are just beyond normal human comprehension.
            When he finally returned to Jersey, he expected to see the Jersey civilian authorities jailed as collaborators. Instead they were given the highest civilian awards and accolades and we’re often still in the same position of authority. The British government had plenty of evidence to support prosecution of these people but they decided that it would be bad form to reveal the extent of that collaboration in the only part of the UK that was occupied. In disgust, Faramus moved to the US for many years and never returned to live in Jersey.
            I think the same approach was taken with the quintessential Englishman Wodehouse.

    • ecojon

      @marty

      I saw that but when I saw Niall’s response I saw red for a minute. One of my first bosses on leaving school was an army captain who was in one of the first units into one of the concentration camps.

      He ended up with a lung disease thought to have been contracted there and always had a problem with it until he died when his lung condition played a large part in his death. He said almost nothing about his time in the army but at his funeral I got chatting to one of his relatives who told me a little more and explained that he came back haunted and totally changed by the experience.

      He knew what a concentration camp was and tried to save people in one and paid for it with his life eventually – he wasn’t, like Wodehouse, living rent-free in a Parisian hotel paid for by the Nazis – some concentration camp.

      • Wodehouse was a collaborator in my honest opinion.

        He also did a monumental disrespecting of all the poor wretched souls who ever had the misfortune to end up in a concentration camp.

        His flippant comments about his comparative captivity were truly sickening.

        Horrible arse of a man.

        Maybe Niall respects his type?

        • Niall Walker

          marty,

          Your honest opinion like your opinions of ALL Rangers fans is devoid of substance or evidence, its called bigotry.

            Not long now

        • Marty,

          I am very much in the pro-Wodehouse camp. He might have been naive (he undoubtedly was) but a collaborator? No way. You can’t read his description of Roderick Spode and the Black Shorts and think he had any feelings for the Nazis.

          And part of the problem in looking at his situation is that people often do so with hindsight – knowing what we know about the Nazis, how could he “help” them?

          The various folk who, even during the war, compared him to Lord Haw Haw were, in my view, totally off the mark.

          One for a blogpost perhaps?

          I do think that he is one of the funniest writers in the English language.

            • Niall When you make statements like that you are effectively marching yourself onto the public stocks & inviting people to chuck rotten fruit at you.
              Personally my attitude towards Wodehouse is ambivilent, I don’t think he can be categorised as a collaborator, but perhaps falls into the chancer bracket. I can’t condemn him for easing out of the front line during the war, but there is no doubt that he was disingenuous about his position. Pretty unforgivable really when you think of the sacrifices & sufferings of others in securing a Fascist free Europe.
              It also raises the question are gifted people, which he undoubtedly was, given wider moral wriggle room than us mere mortals?

          • ecojon

            @Witers like actors can be great concealers.

            He certainly put self-preservation high on his agenda. But you shouldn’t forget how this started and that with Niall making a debating point against Marty by falsely claiming Wodehouse had been in a concentration camp but didn’t hate Nazis in the plural.

            We then have this amazing series of posts from Niall where instead of just accepting that he made a mistake – shades of Adam here – he tries to justify his position.

            Considering what a cushy war Wodehouse ended up having – never in a concentration camp btw – I would have thought he was very friendly with a lot of the Nazis – but only the nice well-educated ones who would join his salon.

            I’m afraid I regard Wodehouse as another traitor who should have been shot – he was there to put the human face on a Nazi regime as part of a wider initiative to keep America out of the war through his broadcasts to the American people.

            Do you actually think he didn’t know exactly what he was being used for. As to his humour there were few joke books in the camps and the only smiles were from the guards and equally professional doctors who swabbed skin to prevent infection before giving a lethal injection.

            But its nice to know that Wodehouse was able to be so productive in the internment camp that fills me with a sense of relief.

            • Niall Walker

              I am defending him against your claims of being a collaborator, and you are losing, so lets get back to the concentration camp red herring.

            • Niall Walker

              ” but didn’t hate Nazis in the plural.”

              ecojon, his comment referred to the behavior of the NAZIS and their hatred in the plural, I gathered you had missed his point, he was exceptionally clever.

      • Niall Walker

        ecojon,

        He spent a year in an internment camp prior to being moved to the hotel when he was 60, his comment related to what he witnessed when humans are ready to mass-hatred.

        • ecojon

          Yea the Nazis moved every foreigner to a luxury Paris hotel when they approached 60. Unless they were a gypsy, a jew, a trade unionist, a Catholic, a homosexual and anyone too old or to young to work or who had ever opposed the brutal regime.

      Well at least Richard Wilson of the Herald is tweeting her asking if she’ll do a dump so the whole thing can be evaluated in context. So I suppose that’s progress of a sort.

      There is a little difficulty in how to handle it from a MSM point of view but it really easy to get round but again we have the bug problem with the Rangers story from Day 1.

      It’s basically being handled by sports journos and 99% of them don’t have the ability to handle this kind of story – it is way out of their competence league. It needs investigative reporting techniques which are slightly more onerous than supping succulent lamb with your elders and betters 🙂

      • ecojon

        Freudian slip

        ‘bug’ problem should be ‘big’ problem but maybe not – I suppose it really is a ‘bug’ problem after all.

      • @eco Keevins’s mantra “I signed up for football” is the shield most of the MSM hid behind. It’s now legal pitfalls that are cited as reasons not to pursue “The Biggest” story in Scottish sporting history & probably the major issue touching on Scottish culture & lets be honest politics.
        The real reason they are all shuffling around the issue is fear. Fear of being exposed as lacking the basic investigative tools for “basic journalism, & the most obvious fear of alienating the Beloved Bloo noses & losing their custom.

Sorry guys I’m just not buying into the Charlotte fake scenario.Only because the name itself is derived from the excellent fake documents coming from china to Charlotte in America,kids have been running about with fake documents which are supposed to be top quality you can’t tell the difference. Until the source is known I would be carefull not to get carried away.

  10. ecojon

    @ Jimmy bee

    I think a few people might be getting carried away for a wee hurrell before we see the end of this 🙂

    We don’t know the source so all we have is the ability to try and look at the documents against what we know are facts in the background or strongly suspected to be facts.

    There is then the question of the legal opinion which underpins a lot of the stuff in the docs – so what do you make of the legal opinion? Are 2 QCs going to put their name and professional reputation on the line if they aren’t satisfied with the provenance of the documents they have been shown.

    I said after the first Charlotte tweet that even if only 10% was true then it was dynamite and nothing has altered my opinion since. In fact I am becoming more and more convinced that the % of truth is a lot higher than 10% at this stage.

    You also appear to be forgetting the audios and how they dovetail into the documents – do you think these are fake as well and I don’t just refer to the Charlotte audios but to all the others ones as well.

    But I’m all ears – give me an idea what you think is dodgy – I have bits where I have reservations but that is mainly where I think the lily has been gilded a bit after the date in question but that kind of cosmetic treatment is what you would expect from a female after all 🙂 Only kidding Maggie 🙂 and Charlotte 🙂

    These documents are so utterly convincing. Who amongst this cast of players, would have the intelligence and the skills to pull off this level of fraudulent document production.
    I accept that there might be some selectivity going on, and some of the simpler documents could be fabricated but I think the bulk of the documents are bona. I can’t wait for the next release.

    I echo JohnBhoy’s thanks to Eco for his indispensable analysis. Cheers Eco.

        It could be that someone different has written them – but that resolution must exist within the company records in some shape or form. But why would the three of them meet in London just for that – I would think possibly something else was going on that day – perhaps another meeting with Ticketus or whoever.

        When Charlotte first came to TSFM I was unsure of it all but I’m probably over the line now if accepting the biggest proportion of material is probably close to being accurate or at least a fair reflection of things.

        • Adam

          Really not sure. As i say, i think they are real, or have been passed on as real but as you say, the minutes were utter nonsense and its highly unlikely a meeting took place for that.

          Also the lack of a signature stinks as well on that front.

        The big question the Rangers supporters have coing up is the issue of STs – To buy or not to buy? That isn’t just a question but it could mean life or death for the club or equally life or death for the spivs.

    • mick

      Thanks for your non blinkered view Adam it seems it’s 30 mil to get rid of whyte and buy assets

      • Adam

        No chance. Admittedly its a legal minefield but everything we know about Craig Whyte points to a result against him. The guy is clueless and has lost every court decision we know of.

        Where this all leaves us, i simply dont know. Its a total circus.

        • ecojon

          @Adam

          Don’t forget that Whyte isn’t going to be a party in this one in terms of litigation – it’s Earley and the company.

        • den

          Clueless !

          He bought Rangers and is still in there.

          Loses every court decision, pays bloody little.

          Came in with at least the contingency of Administration, got de-railed..

          Don’t underestimate him, he may still own Ibrox.

    • @Adam
      Assuming that he is behind it, then it smacks of desperation …….
      Seperately, have a listen to audio CG3 ……….
      What is your take ?
      I have a few thoughts that might be wortwhile sharing …….

      • Adam

        He has previous for taping stuff as well, which tells you everything you need to know about the guy. He defo is desperate so cant say I wouldnt be surprised.

        Listening to that CG3, it appears to me they are talking about a successful CVA and as soon as they get to the CVA not happening the tape cuts out, which to me , stinks to high heaven.

        • Yes, pre CVA so prior to 14th June.
          Re CVA, they are discussing release of assets for the benefit of ‘Sevco’ …
          CG attempts to deflect …. interjecting …. “You are Sevco” ….
          CG introduces …. Patrick (assume FFW ?) ….. preparing docs

          CW and AE appear surprised …. or at least unaware ….. these were prep’d by Patrick ….

          CG (nervously) reminds CG that debentures are still important even on CVA failure …… listen again !

          Important point ……. CG states need for Scottish Comp ……. hence using Patrick to sort ……..

          First …. Now we know that CW and AE are now aware of what is happening ……. that is new ! ….. and it was new to them !

          Second ……. The docs so far show CW and his advisors, legals etc in control ………..

          Third ….. CG has grasped the nettle and is taking the lead ………. This is important ……… it’s the moment that CG controls were this is going … !

          The ‘sting’ was on …. !

          Notice also CG tones ….. refer to STV interview when challanged about Whyte …. it is very telling ….. you can detect when he is comfortable …. and same when he is lying ……..

          Now listen again to the audio …… see if you can detect …… !!!

          Whats your take on that ….. ?

          • sorry read CW (nervously) for CG (nervously) above ………….

            • Adam

              Listened again and on two occasions Green and AN other state its subject to the CVA.

              Im not up to speed with who the 3rd guy is, but he appears to be on Whytes side and was working an angle but clearly stated that the deal with SEVCO was “subject to a CVA”

              Later on in the call, Green reiterates:

              “Even SEVCO cant use them until the receiver has signed the deal, gone exclusive and delivered the CVA”

              He then went on to say

              “And if the CVA failed, it wouldn’t matter as they(CW shares/deed/guarantees) would be worthless”

              At this point Whyte asks “but the debentures wouldn’t be worthless” to which Green initially says “no” then stammers as if he is about to say something else and it gets cut off.

              The suspicious person in me thinks it gets cut off for a reason at that point and that the rest of the tape will never be heard anywhere because it will be deleted.

              I really, really, really hope somebody does serious time for this.

            • Other guy was Aiden Early ….

              remember also STV interview …. CG stated that CW was essential as he controlled debentures …….. he also admitted lying to CW …. will say whatever ….. to get control …. etc

              CW …. the debentures are not worthless …
              How about …. No .. in the afirmative …… agree …

              gotta shoot out ….speak later ….

            • Adam

              If it truly was “no in the affirmative” then why cut the tape off and hang it out there ? Surely it would have been more certain if the tape rolled on to hear the end of the convo.

              Just my opinion mind you as its looking more and more like Pinnochio 1 and 2 with them.

          • ecojon

            @newtz

            Yea – you can actually feel the gear change taking place – but that STV interview was when the wheels came off the chuck wagon. He lost the plot at that point and just couldn’t recover it. Anyone I have spoken to who watched it all say he was obviously spouting porkies big style.

            I actually thought he would have had more steel in him than that but, in the end, looks as though it was all just stealing the limelight and nothing else.

          • @newtz
            Remember IA saying CG was shitting it to take the role. CW had to hand him the reins at some stage. Poss this was it… Patrick……CW OK with that, and false animosity line…. no eyebrows raised so pre planned. CW senior@this stage. CG service provider

            • @Adam …. agree …. why cut tape off there …. it does raise suspicion … !
              I am in agree also ….. I believe that CW is pulling the strings …..
              Does NOT mean CtH is colluding ………. just being used ….. !
              Time will tell ….

              This audio is key ……. when set alongside LBC and QC’d LBC …..
              The Switheroo …. as we all figured out ….. is central ….. how was it novated …. what was purpose of Res11 …. The document I previously mentioned (earlier posts) is ‘possibly’ the document(s) described in this audio ……
              If ………. IF ……. CW signed without legal scrutiny (or a duff legal) …. then he is …… Shagged big time (IMO) …… we need to see the ‘Patrick Documents’ ………… I have a request and some questions along these lines to CtH ….. so far she has delivered ……. let’s see what she is made of …. ! …………

            • Adam

              Perhaps you could ask Charlotte if she(and how do we know its a she by the way) has heard the tape, past the bit where CG stammers before its cut off or if that was exactly how it was passed on ?

          Yep, CVA only, no need for CW in asset sale.

      We’ve been punished enough.

      NOT LONG NOW

    • den

      Of course I can be wrong but the Charlotte stuff looks quite genuine.

      it is biased in that nothing emanates from Craig Whyte, other people incriminate themselves and our man stays above it.

      Biased perhaps, but drawing out a response, some facts and motivations will emerge.

      Hindsight and a lot of detective work will give us something like the truth.

      I am enjoying this as I have always felt that that the Whyte era was the most interesting part of the whole saga.

          • Niall Walker

            carntyne,

            You think they may go down and I disagree, anymore nonsense and Iwill put you ignore, you are dangerous.

    • den

      Rangers were sold for £5.5m. 1.5 molehills.

      Niall, you are not consistent, are you.

      When gratuitous alienation wa mentioned withregard to £5.5m purchase you said the value was what someone would pay and £5.5m was all the market would pay.

      Recent posts from you say that Rangeers are worth £37m.

      i am losing respect for your posts.

      I would be happy with a £3.7m molehill, but thats just me perhaps.

      • Niall Walker

        den,

        Rangers is worth on paper 37 million, and this is one year after the sale for 5.5 million, in between there has been 20 million poured into it .How you can use its paper value as evidence of GA, it lost 7 million in the first 7 months and if the fans desert the club in any decent numbers it will require more funding and its value will drop.

        • Budweiser

          Niall.

          It will require more funding.

          Where does the funding come from though ?Given the present circus another share issue is not on the cards. there is no credit available from banks. Maybe a sugar daddy ?

        • den

          Worth on paper £37M (assuming the paper is sterling pounds. One yesr after it’s sale for £5.5m (same currency presumably). £20m
          ( sterling ?) poured in. Thought it was more than that. Anyway, a lot less than £37M (Sterling).

          But numbers don’t add up

          £7m ioss in 7 months suggests a bad return. Your £20M is worth less than before.£5.5m + less than £20M is ess than £37M.

          Can you explain the £37M. Bear in mind your previous responses on the differing Ibrox valuations that the value is what someone is willling to pay.

  18. You need not have any reservations about the authenticity of the documents, or the reasons why they have been disclosed Paul, Hoopy will tell us, not through education on the subject, not because it may prove Rangers have been purchased twice now through fraud but, through their hatred of my club

      ================================================

      If you substitute the words abhorrence, detestation, loathing or revulsion for the word hate, I think most people would agree with you.

  19. SairFecht

    One has to admit, it’s a highly entertaining twist to a plot that knows no bounds. Survive or not, the name of Rangers has been dragged into a mire of disreputable proportions that will take generations to erode. The ‘establishment club’, the ‘queens xi’ – the very mention of these will arouse nothing but hilarity for years to come.

    • It [s stated in one of the emails that Donald Muir “Lloyds” would push the right people to make sure the deal goes through, if authentic it agrees with my thoughts that the bank sold to Whyte, not SDM, and if the rest of the documentation is the same it may mean that Rangers have been the subject and victim of being gained through fraud. Why, can you explain when so many good people through the years have worked for the club, and may lose their jobs can i ask you will find it hilarious, is it through hatred, bigotry, jealousy or all three ?

      • Unfortunately there will be collateral damage. Rangers – Sevco’s fault no one else’s.
        It really beggars belief that a Rangers – Sevco fan is handing out lectures on bigotry!!!!!!!

      • mark

        Glesga, afraid it’s chickens coming home to roost. If Rangers then subsequently Sevco supporters had ever shown the slightest amount of humility instead of subjecting the country to their ridiculous and puzzling superiority complex they’d maybe get more sympathy.

        Add to that the cranking up of arrogance by Sevco fans since liquidation (which even includes some of them refusing to accept that it actually happened) and its no wonder the rest of the country are laughing at the zombies.

        People losing their jobs is always unfortunate but I wouldn’t put too much emphasis on that. Football clubs generally don’t employ a lot of people with their spending focused on the team. The impact of another liquidation wouldn’t be as great on the area as for example, Asda at Helen Street closing its doors would be.

        So I say it’s a wee bit of karma, you probably read it as ‘it’s all about the rangers’

        • Adam

          You are basing this of course on the Rangers fans you know and idiots off Rangers Minded and Follow Follow.

          I should add that there are thousands of Rangers fans embarrassed with what happened and would gladly pay back as much as possible. It has even been suggested that the money raised and sitting in the RFFF account will be split amongst all the small creditors if the club is stabilised and the money not needed.

          What should never be overlooked though is the result of the Police enquiry into the sale of the club and what subsequently happened. The fans could do very little about that and are essentially the victims of serious mis-management and potential fraud.

          • mark

            Hi Adam,

            I do feel sorry the genuine fans among my friends and in general but their voices are being drowned out by the noisy supremacist mob. Anybody that puts their head above the parapet is quick to blame everybody else and take no responsibility for what’s happened. I do think this is partly down to Charlie’s sabre rattling of the last year but who’s fault is it for buying his smash hook, line and sinker?

            I also disagree that the fans couldn’t do anything. You may not like to hear it but Celts for Change showed the way forward 20 years ago.

            It’s not too late to take your club back incidentally – you could sort this out very quickly by not giving the spivs your dough.

            • Adam

              The comparison to Celts for change is nothing like apples with apples though.

              The costs nowadays for sorting this mess out and keeping the club afloat are nothing like it was back then.

              I could let you all into a secret about Celts for change that would surprise the life out of each and every one of you 🙂 (not a bad thing by the way so dont think im trying to paint what happened as being wrong or anything) just something more personal. 🙂

            Much of the comment on here has been based on the outpouring of the idiots of “Rangers minded and Follow Follow”.

            Not yourself obviously. You never tried to deflect.

            You became poster boy for the Rangers trolls purely by chance and tried to shrug off the mantle to no avail as Cam in particular got behind you at every chance..

            Police enquiry was so recent that it was news to you. Split what is left in RFFF, so noble !.

I find that working class Scottish people fawning to an aristocratic monarchy and claiming superiority over their fellow humans – only for the whole facade come crashing down in a mire of cheating and criminality – is very funny indeed. What’s wrong with that?

          That is the protestant work ethic that powered the industrial revolution. They let the mercantile aristocracy shovel them with shit and they tug their forelocks and say “more please sir”. They (the bluenoses) have to understand how they are empowered to end this nonsense. Adam says it can’t happen these days the way Celts For Change did it back in 93. Why not? No season book money would be calamitous for the crooks and they would be forced into transparency. Jeez.

        Lloyds ended up with the Rangers debt through negligence and patronage by the Bank of Scotland allowing Rangers MIH to run up huge and unsustainable debt. Bof S then surrendered the best brand in Scotland to the Halifax Building Society through sheer ineptitude combined with the aforementioned nepotism/ old boy network.

        Halifax inherited the ineptitude of B of S with the brand name and compounded the idiocy with its in house short termism (fashionable at the time, still inexcusable)

        in the crisis Lloyds were one of two UK Banks who claimed to be viable and were not demonstrably dead. The Government agreed to go along with the fiction that they were viable if they took on HBOS in return for hidden support.

        Lloyds were presented with the proposition that SDM wanted to borrow more money. And for what – his football club.

        The answer was ……….?

        Hatred

        Bigotry

        Jelousy

    Er, hello! If Wee Craigie ‘wins his case’ Rangers lose their license and, even worse, the IPO is null and void. They will find themselves in the mother of alls shit storms. Talk about being in denial!!!!!

              With respect I think your attitude to Mick is plain snobbery because he doesn’t meet your exacting standards in spelling and grammar. He continually hits the mark with his views and predictions. Today, to paraphrase Mick, he said Niall has SQA smarts but his insight into the Rangers situation is clouded by his obvious bias. Again, I think Mick has made a very fair appraisal.

            • Adam

              Its nothing to do with his spelling and grammar. It has everything to do with telling me F off a few times, calling me a liar, accusing me of being in jail, calling me a pr*ck, his constant use of hun/currant and the ooh ah references which we all know what they refer to.

      dan,

      Have a wee think about the consequences of reversing the sale on the value of the club, and what this would do to any monies due to CW.

      It will never happen, everyone would lose.

      • mark

        Niall, think there’s a possibility that Craig is leaking all this cos he knows the jigs up, he realises that he’s been bumped out his dough so he wants to bring the lot down with him?

        • Niall Walker

          mark,

          The murky world of asset stripping ( management) is filled with sociopaths who have one motivation, MONEY.
          CW and CG are both financial predators, and predators rarely fight each other to the death, they threaten to achieve an outcome.

          CW is probably releasing all this guff to enrage the Rangers support and affect season ticket sales, its a further threat, he is ratcheting up the pressure on CG to make a deal. He is letting CG know that his shares will be worthless by December if he does not do a deal.

          And I think it will work, this is why I am interested in how much he will get.

      • @Niall
        If the sale is proved illegal and reversed, everybody should lose! CW yes, because he was trying a phoenix, CG&IA, yes, because they were aiding and abetting b4 trying to shaft him. Same goes for D&P and anybody involved.
        Then the club/company/assets can be legally and morally liquidated to the benefit of the creditors. Simples!
        It is clear why I am not a qualified judge. I would jail the lot of them and bulldoze the place. I couldn’t be bothered listening to their rabbitting and finger pointing.
        I may not be a qualified judge, but I have judgement. The place is a hive of corruption and morally bankrupt behaviour.
        It was before the arrival of CG&CW, and if allowed to continue unfettered, will be again when they depart..
        Oh. And while I had my black cap on I would change corporate law. It sucks!

        • Niall Walker

          barca,

          I am not suggesting this is pretty but they will never reverse the sale nor will any of this see a court, they are pragmatists, there is no point in self destruction, for them its not a moral issue of right or wrong, its who profits.

          • @Niall.
            You have hit on the head why you get under people’s skin. You seem out of touch with the average Scottish fan.
            It is NOT about profits or Sevco sailing on or any other matter.
            It is about these spivs, who think they can invade OUR game, and fleece OUR money.
            It is about the cheating, and corruption they have brought to the game with their shitty practises and corporate chicanery.
            It is about the blind eye turned by our governers, it is about bias and level playing fields.
            There may be folk with other reasons, and aye, bigotry may be one, But for the best part, it is for the type of reasons stated.
            These grey suited pirates are doing more damage to the game than our refs could ever dream of.
            Sevco HAVE been afforded preferential treatment, when the truth is, it is they who are the bad guys
            The fawning and lying, and yes, corruption of the rules done on their behalf is truely sickening to most folk. Anger on an unprecedented level Haas been introduced into the game, to fascilitate future wealth for these spivs, and for why? So there will still be a team called Rangers! ! !
            It is not on! And they got it wrong. They are Sevco, Super Sevco, no one likes them…..but not for the reasons they think.! They have cheated the whole nation, and nobody gives a flying feck what corporate law says. Nobody cares for what they stand for, But everybody cares about what they &ave, and continue to do.
            They are unworthy of defence.

    A collaborator is someone who works for the enemy. Wodehouse was paid for his 5 broadcasts on nazi radio. At one level that makes him a collaborator. The broadcasts themselves are a cheerful and funny account of his internment. Wodehouse’s broadcasts sent the message to the US that life under nazi Germany wasn’t really that bad after all. Tell that to the 6 million Jews they gassed.

    Wodehouse was befriended by Planck, a member of the Paris embassy’s press department, whose job it was to recruit prison camp detainees to broadcast propaganda to the US and Bitain. Wodehouse denied knowing Planck, but a file in an MI5 file revealed a letter wherein Wodehouse refers to Planck as “my Hollywood friend” – before the war Planck had been a Hollywood extra. Planck also transferred 560,000F into Wodehouse’s wife’s Swiss account in late 1944.

    He was extremely reluctant to condemn nazis, even when pressed. Hence his pathetic “I don’t hate in the plural”. It would have been so much easier for him to say “Nazi Germany was an abomination and most nazis should rot in hell”. He was no Lord Haw Haw, but he did collaborate with nazi Germany. Call it naivety if it makes you feel better.

    • Ed Paisley

      Thanks for the post JB. More a “useful idiot” rather than a collaborator. That sounds about right.

      • JohnBhoy

        Ed, he was well rewarded for his “stupidity” and, rather conveniently, every decision he made in nazi Germany after his internment was to his personal benefit. Not that stupid.

    At the EGM( or before) the vast majority of shareholders will want CG and his cohorts gone, they are now the biggest threat to their investment. They will also want CW paid off out of the original directors percentage, and to be honest Rangers are better off rid of them both.

    The only person who can make money out of this mischief is CW, and its probably only half true but that doesn’t matter to the fans, they are not as discerning nor as forgiving as I.

    Who is being fed this information, the Rangers fans.

    • ecojon

      @Niall

      Just checked the link you used for Wodehouse and lo and behold – Guess What your Institute for Historical Review is described in numerous websites as:

      This one is from the Princeton, edu site but there are probably hundreds to choose from:

      ‘The Institute for Historical Review (IHR), founded in 1978, is an American organization that describes itself as a “public-interest educational, research and publishing center dedicated to promoting greater public awareness of history.”

      ‘Critics have accused it of being an antisemitic “pseudo-scholarly body” with links to neo-Nazi organizations, and assert that its primary purpose is to disseminate views denying key facts of Nazism and the genocide of Jews and others.

      ‘It has been described as the “world’s leading Holocaust denial organization’.

      Now why does none of that surprise me about the kind of site you are happy to base your argument on.

        Please study the evidence of his own words and make up your own mind, it is truly unkind to link PG with anti-semitism, and he was not awarded a knighthood for being an anti-semitic collaborator. I don’t believe you have read his works or else we would not be having this discussion.

        We can dig out every source we can find but the evidence is his own words, watch the film coming out and then get back to me. Here is a right wing source giving the details of the drama.

            Johnboy,

            Did I miss a meeting, when did you whip my ass in this debate, and I will repeat it one more time, there is no evidence he was a collaborator, its simple, innocence until proven guilty, your opinion and mine is irrelevant.

            I never said the tv drama was evidence, his words are evidence, winners in a debate do not have to invent positions to attack.

          • Niall Walker

            John,

            Read his words.

            ” In fact, nobody who reads the text of those broadcasts today can fail to see that they are no more than light-hearted accounts of Wodehouse’s capture and internment by the Nazis. They contain not one single word of pro-Nazi, or anti-British, sentiment. Indeed, they poked fun at the Germans, and made clear that morale among British internees was high.”

          Deflection again of the highest order by blaming me for your original error and trying to brow-beat me into submission 🙂

          All you had to say was you got it wrong by stating he was in a concentration camp when it was actually just an internment camp. But you felt unable to admit your error of fact which actually reveals quite a lot about you.

          But what reveals more about you is that you have stated ‘in your eyes’ that there is no difference between a concentration camp and an internment camp in Nazi Germany. It would appear to me you have been spending far too long on Holocaust denial sites.

          Still you’ll be happy to hear you’ve made my ignore list and I have to say you well deserve it and I will be happy to be able to ignore your deflection in future as you are the type of person I have no wish to converse with as tonight you have revealed not only what a closed mind you have but also what a dangerous one as well.

          • Niall Walker

            ecojon,

            The debate was about PG being a collaborator, I accepted the difference between the two camps and you condemn one of my sources but not its content.

            The bottom line is you cannot prove he was a collaborator, MI5 had an opinion and it was rejected by the Govt, now you may speculate all you want, he is innocent of collaboration because he was never tried and convicted of collaboration.

            Read his words for goodness sake, you know nothing about his views.

          @JohnBhoy

          I really don’t give a sh*t about the beauty or humour in what anyone writes if beneath it all they are a rotten human being. And Wodehouse used his skills after the war to viciously lampoon his critics who attacked his Nazi collaboration.

          What matters – even with great writers – is how they actually live their lives and the courage they show in adversity. That shows what’s truly in their hearts.

          This privileged fop just wanted as comfortable a life as possible under the Nazis while millions were exterminated.

          • Niall Walker

            Wodehouse, along with the local English bartender and English garage owner, was taken to an internment camp in Upper Silesia in present-day Poland, while Ethel was put under house arrest.The German Foreign Ministry got to hear that Wodehouse had been interned, but he was due to be released in months as internees over 60 were no longer counted as combatants.So they approached his camp commandant, Buchelt, who persuaded the old boy to agree – on his release – to make some broadcasts on Nazi Radio directly to the Americans, who were not at this time at war with Germany, to reassure his readers in the US that he had survived and been treated well. He seems to have had no idea he was being used as propaganda.The broadcasts were perfectly innocent comic accounts of life in the camp, but they were picked up by the BBC monitoring service.The Minister of Information in England was keen to get America into the war and to suggest that all Germans were torturers. He got a journalist to make a BBC broadcast calling Wodehouse a traitor and falsely accusing him of buying his freedom.

            Two sides to every story.

  33. charliedon

    I still see a significant number of voices on Rangers forums supporting the “return” of Charles Green (although he’s never actually been away). I also do not see a lot of obvious support for Malcolm Murray. To me this is astonishing. It appears to me that Murray is a legitimate businessman with a reputation to uphold and is genuinely wanting to see Rangers return to a healthy state. He also seems to be showing admirable strength of character holding firm in the face of the onslaught of the Green faction’s ongoing attempts to remove him.
    I think the fans are hopelessly misguided and simply don’t want to believe Green is only going to fleece them then scarper. The wealth of evidence now available that Green is a greedy, devious operator is just ignored. His bruising style appeals to the WATP mentality and herein lies the problem. Malcolm Murray’s approach to the task of rebuilding Rangers would probably be a steady and sensible one. The fans are just not interested in this. They want only to get back as quickly as possible to lording it over everyone else and trampling opposition underfoot. Green tells them what they want to hear.
    If Malcolm Murray is ousted then I just cannot see a good outcome for them. It’s clear Green’s mob have no affinity for the club and simply want to make off with as much money as they can. He more or less admiited this at the outset when he said he didn’t see himself being there for a year. It’s just taken longer than he initially thought because the assurances he seems to have received about retaining SPL status fell apart. The timescale may have changed but the ultimate goal certainly hasn’t.
    I genuinely feel sorry for the decent section of the Rangers support but I fear the WATP element will always hold sway. And that’s why most Scottish football fans don’t want them back. Not unless they start again completely afresh at the very bottom as a new club and learn some humility and respect on the way back up.

    • ecojon

      @charliedon

      Couldn’t agree more – but Malcolm Murray has been the target for a determined and vicious whispering campaign since Green failed to force him out. A lot of the Rangers sites are riddled with obvious dodgy posters and Murray has been continually villified.

      Another amazing phenomenon is this recurring theme that Green saved the club by putting money in when we all know that he hasn’t parted with a penny – well maybe a quid but he would have reclaimed that back in expenses.

      It’s a real time warp mentality and fascinating to observe especially the way they take some facts and discard everything that doesn’t suit and get left with only what backs-up their argument.

      We can all fall into that trap but usually fellow posters will crash whatever ivory tower we have built with facts and bring us back to reality with a bang. Doesn’t seem to work on rangers sites.

      And the longer I observe them the more I see what a deeply divided support they actually are and riven by factionalism with really vicious personal attacks employed against their own.

      I keep thinking that probably the bulk of the 9,000 who didn’t renew their STs last year were the fans who aren’t interested in militant loyalism and who don’t go the Supremacy angle with any conviction but just move their lips to make it look as though they do.

      If I’m right that truly is a bad sign for the club – in some ways I think they are in a more dangerous place than they were a year ago and it really has the potential for a messy collapse. And the talk of all the new players is either pure moonbeams or if even only half true will turn into financial madness.

      I truly thought almost a year ago that starting in the third was the best way for them to go, not as a punishment so much, as a means of giving ordinary Bears a chance to determine the future direction of the club. For a wide variety of reasons it just hasn’t happened and so far I don’t see any sign of changes in culture.

      But anything could happen and that;s the real scary bit because it has the potential to seriously impact on Scottish Football.

      • charliedon

        @ecojon
        Spot on Eco. I meant to mention the recurring myth that Green put money in but the thought got lost along the way. The likes of Malcolm Murray and Walter Smith were only required to be on board in the early stages until Green & co got their feet under the table and got the share issue underway. Now they are completely surplus to the Green consortium’s reuirements and are just a barrier to their plan. The consortium no longer needs to keep up appearances and if they succeed in removing Murray I reckon the plan will be executed swiftly, the remaining money will disappear, quickly followed by the members of the consortium.
        There won’t be many pieces left for any “Rangers men” to pick up.

          What I also remember him saying when he arrived was that he wouldn’l be putting a penny into Rangers and wouldn’t have any shares. Then when he got his 5 million shares for hee-haw he said he was leaving them to his grandchildren.

          I wonder if there is some family connection linking his grandchildren to the Easdale family – I mean chico is a plain talking Yorkshireman who tells it like it is, isn’t he 🙂

            Correct – I remember him saying he would never hold shares. It’s just one of the many falsehoods Green has thrown about. But his acolytes seem to have this amazing ability to just filter out and forget any uncomfortable facts that don’t fit in with their mindset.

  35. Raymilland

    @Niall Walker

    The bone of contention has always been the Ticketus deal which was used to pay off Lloyds. As a major creditor; Ticketus have fought back and are on course to recover their investment in RFC from Craig Whyte.

    The predatory nature of the players involved is plain to see.

    Craig Whyte is under threat from Ticketus. He is now placed in the frontline to champion appropriate reparation to satisfy the original deal made with Ticketus, which can only be achieved if the sale to Sevco Scotland is made void by BDO.

    His only defence to validate his involvement with Sevco 5088, as already suggest, was to restore his reputation.

    Ticketus were keen to remain involved subsequent to RFC entering administration. If that Mr. Whyte can demonstrate that his main concern was always to establish a fresh link with Ticketus and newco; he may be able to satisfy BDO that it is in the creditors’ interest to make Green’s alleged illegal purchase of the assets void.

    If the sale was indeed illegal and in breach of trust; BDO would have a duty to review the situation; especially if that a better deal can be concluded for the creditors.

    Whatever the outcome (due to the SFA ban) Whyte can not legitimately have any connection to the day to day running of TRFC. As things stand; Sevco 5088 has made no contribution in that regard. I would suggest that if the sale is made void; Craig Whyte could make a clean break from his association with RFC and also leave the club in a better position than when he first arrived (albeit playing football in an inferior division).

    As has been suggest; that TRFC is on the brink of admin 2; it would save face (of sorts) if that the original sale was made void and the bidding process is invited once again (perhaps Bill Miller could re-enter the fray).

    • Niall Walker

      Ray,

      I see where you are coming from up to Sevco5088, but then you lost me, if the deal goes back to Sevco5088 then why should it go back any further ? What are thr grounds for dismissing the original deal with Sevco5088 ?

      Are you suggesting everything starts again because CW got defrauded of a share of Sevco 5088, I just cannot see it.

      • Raymilland

        @Niall Walker

        If we accept that Craig Whyte is party to Sevco 5088; and that Charles Green reneged on his agreement with Earley and Whyte (that Green was acting as a front); the sale must be considered to be deceptive if not fraudulent on many levels.

        Most crucially; Whyte is in breach of insolvency rules by being party to the purchasing consortium led by Green.
        The subsequent breach of trust by Green compounds the already compromised transaction.

        If the above scenario is substantiated; BDO would have no option other that to make the entire sale void.

        If that no criminality is involved; Craig Whyte would retain his initial holding over the assets, therefore, we would be back to square one.

        Whether there has been any crime or not; there would be financial liability in particular to the share holders.

        • Niall Walker

          ” Most crucially; Whyte is in breach of insolvency rules by being party to the purchasing consortium led by Green.”

          Ray, It is too late to check but I am positive no such restriction exists, I know of many previous owners who have bought back the assets from the liquidator. If such a restriction did exist then CW does not have any claim on the assets in Sevco 5088, don’t you agree ?

          • Raymilland

            @Niall Walker

            The secretive nature of the deal between the parties involved in Sevco would include barring SFA knowledge of Whyte’s involvement.

            Once Whyte realised he was being shafted he had nothing to lose by exposing the nefarious dealing that would otherwise have been kept secret.

            Whyte has scuppered the entire transaction.

            • Niall Walker

              Ray,

              I do not believe the original sale will be reversed because of the SFA or Whyte’s involvement.

            • Raymilland

              @Niall Walker

              The SFA has no bearing on the legitimacy of the sale.

              If it can be proven that Whyte was party to Sevco 5088; and that Green transferred the assets without any consideration to other share holders; Green will have hell to pay.

              BDO would be obliged to consider every option, including the reversal of the sale. As things stand; I would suggest that that would be the best possible outcome for Craig Whyte and TRFC.

              The SFA is likely to downplay any involvement of Craig Whyte and Sevco 5088.

    • Ticketus are on the way to recovering their money from Whyte ? They accepted Whyte’s coporate guarentee,s, which they are now in the process of liquidating as their will be nothing except more debt in their. Hopefully though this is when Whyte is caught for fraud as he never had the security he said he had

      • martin c

        The suggestion from charlotte the harlot appears to be that the deal from selling Rangers to CW was a deal to rid Rangers of its liabilities and then for a blue knight (even a previous owner is a possibility) to ride to the rescue but is has been been somewhat screwed up(greed) along the way. Spivco has become not a phoenix but an albatross to Scottish Football (legal definition of phoenix may vary from mine).

        and yes ownership may revert back if it is all a fraud? We await validation of the documents- red herrings, smoking guns, pocket aces and loaded dice- bring them on.

        • Raymilland

          @Niall Walker

          If that Ticketus can get back in the loop at Ibrox; Whyte would most probably be off the hook as far as liability to them is concerned. The only way Ticketus could recover contracts at Ibrox is for BDO to deem the sale to Green to be void; and negotiations of a sale to reopen.

          Whyte will be put away long before he gets to the chance to take Green to court, he will also be penniless by then, and wont be able to afford to raise an action

  36. Niall walker. You have squirmed and wriggled all night but its over.
    Give us the French hello and put yer hands up.
    PG obviously did and didn’t give a hoot so long as his bath was warm and his wine was chilled.
    Great fun guys.
    Terrific debating

    Interesting tweet from Charlotte re today’s Tom English story which might, of course, be all smoke and mirrors but nonetheless of interest. The smoke and mirrors refers to Charlotte – TE’s story is just poor in certain regards but I will say this for him he often is the first of the MSM pack to put his helmet above the parapet.

    But it’s usually on the end of a long stick and his head is kept safely low waiting for reaction.

    Dear @TomEnglishSport Report is so far wide of the mark. Don’t you think CW has a legal team battling me right now? http://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/sfl-division-three/tom-english-green-whyte-team-would-break-all-rules-1-2936494

    Richard Wilson’s take on current situation at Ibrox and it’s interesting that he seems to have softened his line somewhat on Murray by suggesting that he could step-down as chair but remain as director and generally he recognises Murray’s strong points rather than just repeat the personal smears used to attack Murray by his enemies and possibly manufactured by them as well.

    Still he points to Dave King as the ‘salvation’ man of Rangers and that might be the case at least in the eyes of supporters but at the end of the day King is a ruthless businessman when required and might want his £20 million back. I also wonder whether he is fully au fait with the current financial situation at Rangers and short to medium term prospects.

    Having said that Wilson does raise the elephant in the room re King and that’s the SFA’s fit and proper test, Disappointingly he says that King’s lawyers have explored this matter with the SFA but doesn’t give any indication as to the outcome of that process nor is their any quote from King.

    Indeed I can’t see one single quote in Wilson’s piece from any of the multitude of Ibrox characters that he mentions. The story is basically a stodgy repetition of the story and it hasn’t been moved on an inch which is disappointing because Wilson has the ability and contacts to do much better. Perhaps all will be revealed on Monday in The Herald.

    And of course there is no mention of Charlotte which is possibly one of the few newsworthy items in recent days in the Rangers saga. No sticking the helmet above the parapet here a la TE.

    Now that is surprising considering Richard’s public twitter exchange yesterday with said lady, or at least a spandex-clad Craigie, when Richard begged her to stop the striptease, drop the veils and reveal all. I know how you feel mate 🙂

    However, unlike the MSM, I want to see the docs to analyse them and try to discern where the truth, if any, might lie. I have the distinct feeling that the MSM now only see the story as revealing Charlotte’s identity. Par for the course on this one as the taste of succulent lamb takes a long time to dissipate and the thought of another invite to the banqueting table even longer.

      Staring at documents and hoping they are true is hardly Bispectral Analysis, and the crux of the matter is the identity behind the source material, historical analysis 101. Without this there can be no story.

      Who is Charlotte?what is she,
      That all our swains commend her?
      Holy,fair and wise is she,
      The heavens such grace did lend her,
      that she might admired be.

    Excellent debating gentlemen. Personally, I couldn’t give a flying f@@k about Wodehouse and whether he was a nazi or not. The higher echelons of the English establishment were as, if not more, crooked as the spivs we are witnessing now. Close ranks to the undesirables. “I’ll have a word with so and so and we’ll sort out this sorry mess in the morning” (said in the only voice they know, annoying plummy whine)

    Now if these clowns in the SFA will grow a pair and suspend the toxics clubs license, then we may begin to see an end to this charade. Close the door before they gallop away and pass on info to the police. The Masonic element could play but what else is there. BDO seem to have fallen asleep. The judge comes to a decision that no sane man can comprehend and the spivs have led them all a merry dance.

    Charlotte will now do the job for these idiots in the SFA. We wanted transparency and they gave us the 5 way agreement ffs. Without the Internet bam pots, these bast@rds would be getting away without question. Shut the place down, suspend the license and swarm the place with a clean, incorruptible force of honest law abiding officers.

  41. Charlotte claims this piece by Tom English is wide of the mark.

    Then goes on to say “Don’t you think CW has a legal team battling me right now?”

    I see that Tom English is having a pop at Celtic supporters for dissecting the online Charlotte documents. Tom doesn’t like bloggers doing the job that he should be doing but won’t do. Rather than attempting to ascertain the veracity of the documents and discuss the content in detail, he prefers instead to mock social media in general and Celtic posters in particular. Then again, his record on proper analysis is pretty poor. Here’s a wee taster on his sycophantic and hopelessly misplaced thoughts on Craig Whyte, way back in 2011 (http://www.scotsman.com/sport/tom-english-craig-whyte-s-rangers-takeover-bid-has-been-a-tortuous-process-1-1595764), including his intentionally insulting but comically prescient conclusion:

    “[It] is an indisputable fact that he has proven he has the funds to buy Murray’s shares and pay-off the debt owing to Lloyds Banking Group. As far as bona fides go, that’s not a bad start. Whyte has deposited 28m as proof of his financial clout. He has spent a large six-figure sum on lawyers and accountants and due diligence stretching back six months [lol JohnBhoy]. He has said publicly, more than once, that he is committed to investing 25m over five years on new players. He has stayed in the game and has worked out a “mechanism” to deal with whatever HMRC may through at the club. [ha ha how did that mechanism turn out Tom?]. He has stayed in the deal, also, despite the nasty little surprise of a 2.8m unpaid tax bill was discovered. He has hung around and inched things forward despite all of that and regardless of the two UEFA charges of sectarian chanting that are hanging over the club at present.”

    Then he criticises Alastair Johnson for trying to warn the Rangers fans that Whyte is a conman:

    “What is Johnston thinking? That Whyte will take control of the club and then go, “HaHa! Fooled ye all! I don’t have another bob to my name! We’re all going down in flames!”

    Tom, stick to writing the funnies on a Sunday.

      I had forgotten that one – a good laughing start to the day 🙂

      @JohnBhoy
      That’s an epic fail by TE to rival even Traynor’s “billionaire with wealth off the radar” gaffe.

    • Niall Walker

      Morning JohnBhoy,

      Bloggers cannot ascertain the veracity of the documents by discussing it amongst themselves, there is only one way this can be done and you can’t verify the author or the documents sitting at a laptop.
