It says just what the reality is. For some people it may result hard to digest as the drama and the crimes that BM is accused of, by many, are a fantasy or very diminished.
I think Mr Wilkinson has behaved like a gentleman by not even mentioning certain personal attacks that have recently taken place here and there. Mostly here.
His goal is clear. And also the hurdles to overcome, which are different now as compared to ten years ago. The task is not easy but the will is there. And that is good start.
Today an article by Mr Coyte appeared on the Guardian, which I believe is the most ridiculous thing a national paper could do. How it can happen that a trader has the opportunity to freely write against a London institution without the reply of the latter... Good publicity for the Guardian for sure. The saver of the people. Yeah of course..
Probably it is time to reconsider all things in a different format. More balanced and rational. The reality is there to be seen, is the King naked?
More stories will come out for sure, from traders still at BM, from Trustees and from normal people like us and those who have spoken far too long will regret it. Or not because the King is not naked as long as the children are asleep..
