I hear regular reports that Our Hero is fastidious, clever, experienced and has expert legal advice on company rescue matters. But I read (on Random Thoughts’ blog) that he doesn’t always take great care when filling out forms or doing paperwork.
Now he has a formidable foe on his case. Alastair Johnston, the non-exec who may have been asleep at the wheel when Rangers FC PLC (in administration) were industriously working on schemes to avoid taxation, has written to the Crown Office asking them to investigate the acquisition of Rangers by Craig Whyte. No Surrender Johnston, as he is knows in some parts, a sleeping giant of the sports industry, is awake and he’s darn irritated!
I love good irony. Can you believe, he wrote to the CROWN Office! Forces of the Crown are all over this situation already. You have to wonder how deeply Her Majesty’s officers will delve now they’re on the case.
As anyone who has followed recent perjury trials in Scotland will know, not all alleged crimes are investigated, on occasion, action needs to be in the public interest, but you have to think that if our hero has failed to cross a t or dot an i, No Surrender Johnston will pursue Our Hero like the well-pensioned accountant he is. If his suspicions are correct, I’m sure he will not rest until it’s Gaol for the Rangers miscreants.
