I suggest you look at sample 6 first. All of these emails came about as a the result of a very nasty pre-pack administration where I lost shares worth £5m, and also lost my reputation because of voluminous scurrilous behaviour. The one about Dursley is because I come from Dursley. There were obviously many, many more, but these are the only ones I got my hands on.
I have a hunch we may uncover some more unusual, innovative -& perhaps undisclosed-financial arrangements as we now progress eg we aren't sure who the beneficiaries are from some rental payments on the freehold at OP!?!
We will now get on at pace unfettered by this & sort the company out. You should keep a wary eye; any such discoveries may colour the final settlement with AS.
Below is as towering an exhibit of self-delusion & mangled truth as ever you are likely to see. I confess to laughing.
I don't intend dignifying this pile of piffle with a response.
Peter, welcome to our club. You took your time being admitted by the way.
Unfortunately we aren't a particularly exclusive organisation, containing as we do, almost everyone who has had the truly unique & unforgettable experience of working with Alan.

Don't forget Bill has said "now that ###t has gone I'm more than happy to do anything you want me to to help".
Whether he has the ability to help the business review on various items I don't know. Also he may be part of the stable you need to clear out.

I've no idea what Alan's on but it must be pretty good stuff. Would that he'd share it around.

Just to be clear, unless anyone can prove to me otherwise, I'm almost positive that we acquired History Press at completion of the original transaction in January for a price of $334k. There may have been some funnies around that (surprise, surprise) in that I think Alan did some negotiations around property with Kirsty and her husband however the crux of it is, despite what I think a number of us believed, we did pay for the business at completion.

I concur 100 % with Peter.
We have a new verb " to dursley". We were all "Dursleyed".

Good progress me hearties - we are making strong progress towards our prize. There may be one or two white knuckle moments before we get there but we will get there.
So, chins up, don't waste time with AJS who is a one of life's energy sappers. I'm convinced he is so in love with himself he drinks his bathwater.
As the Arabs say "it is written". & as I say "if you can't smile then bloody well grimace".
Available anytime if you want to chat.
All the best, Andy
