I see there is  continuing pressure to strip Green of his knighthood, this only  illustrates  what a corrupt system it is,  for this dollop of s**t and many like him to have received one in the first place.

I hope the slimey sod tries his luck with the courts again and gets his fingers badly burned. His destruction of the BHS pension scheme and business was unforgivable let alone his apparently boorish behaviour.

It's not only him. There but for the grace of God go many others of his ilk rich enough to buy themselves out of trouble. Until they're not..

There is no God,  only people who associate money with corruption.  A touch of sour grapes perhaps?

No sour grapes here Traveller. Rude of you to suggest it. He has nothing that I covet.

Corruption is the norm in big business, I've lost contracts because I refused to send the contracts director, of a large national house builder, & his family to the Maldives for a three week holiday.

In the iconic scene where Darth Vader says to Luke "we can rule the galaxy together as father and son" my response would have been that I dont want the responsibility. Just give me the basic cash.

"A bit" I can agree with but anything more than a bit invites people to want to take it off you. At his level of wealth I imagine there are many skeletons in cupboards that were also immured long ago...but sh*t happens, even to the wealthy.
