Lets treat this as a diplomatic move on your part, Sluffy, but there are connections between BWFC and tax avoidance through former players, three former managers and the present Assistant Manager.@Sluffy wrote:@MartinBWFC wrote:Fuck off with your non BWFC football shit 10 bob, custard or any other names you go by. there's other places to post your absolute shite.
No need for the abuse Martin.
Just for you I've moved the thread to where Bob (and anyone else) are allowed to post about whatever he/they want.
If you don't like Bob or what he posts then don't read it.
Simple as that really.
The film schemes involved are generally regarded as being at the more aggressive end of the tax avoidance spectrum and some of those who chose to go down this road got their fingers well and truly burned. Gary Megson, Owen Coyle and Phil Parkinson may all have had their detractors but they, at least, were not amongst those intent on personal gain at the expense of the Exchequer and therefore health, education and security.
Dale Vince's avoidance takes a different path but the sums involved are very substantial. This, of course, is the man who threatened to liquidate BWFC and played a big part in what many described as 'dragging the club's name through the mud'. Some may think that unimportant, I don't.
You may remember, Sluffy, me suggesting that you took a look at the balance sheet of the Ecotricity Group. If you had done so, you might have noticed that its reported reserves consisted almost entirely of an upward revaluation of assets in 2013 when the group was reporting profits.
But for the last three years its reported nothing but losses and big ones at that whilst DV appears to have continued his previous practice of drawing out millions in interest free loans whilst others are tasked with signing off the balance sheets.
Dale Vince is, of course, known as a big donor to the Labour Party and therefore unlikely to get much sympathy from the present government. But I think its almost certainly the reason that he does not get the criticism he deserves on here and on WW and the reason for the mindless comments of nitwits.
