    The - I'm a Dope Defense

    Its looking like the question is - did his accountant know about the Monaco account and how much was in it? and if so then they should have made sure any tax owing on that amount was paid and if they didn't do that it was their fault.

    If they didn't know about it then how could they account for it?

    According to Arry they did know about it but strange we have not heard that confirmed by the accountant yet. Also, Arry is using the old "its such a small amount why would I bother" ruse and that may have some weight. He is rich enough to not worry about 30 grand but then again if we had the chance to not pay £10 VAT on a bill would we take that chance?? Yes of course we would.

    If he can prove the accountant knew about the money in Monaco and that they mucked up he stands a chance of getting away with it. Even if they find him guilty he can sue the accountant for being incompetent.

    The fact still remains he went out of his way to fly out to Monaco and set up an account in a made up name. Why would he do that unless he had some sort of intention to use it for stashing some money he wanted to keep out of view? Not that thick is he????

      Indeed.

    • ps
      Rambro - having worked in the recruitment industry for the last 23 years I can confirm I regularly see Graduates here that cannot spell even simple words let alone construct sensible sentences.

      School leavers often claim to have several GSCE's, including English, but then send in CV's that are written in text speak - I kid ye not!!! I had one that was two pages long and did not contain one vowel or punctuation mark!

      Unyet Schools and the last Labour Govt. (this one has started to be honest about the problem at least) continue to claim that the system has not been dumbed down in order to prove that we have an ever better education system - the facts speak for themselves. I have started to notice more and more reports in the national press of large employers reporting that they cannot find school leavers that can spell so hopefully the truth is starting to come out but what have we done to our kids in the name of socialism????

      • I think the 'dumbing down' of our education system started under the prior Conservative government myself, but there you go.

        They really are all as bad as each other IMO.

      • Sfer,
        I thought the dumbing down started with Thatcher (and I'm a loose 'conservative' although I don't really have a fixed political view). I seriously though that they had seen the world trends and were trying to create a cheap labour force (with a highly educated middle/upper class) to attract business back to the UK.
        But it looks as though the dumbing down just gained a momentum of its own - with the poor sods revelling in the mind numbing crap that's thrown at them as either 'must haves' or entertainment.
