The news yesterday was that my friend will have to face the courts over his financial misdoings. Ironically he and two others have got legal aid! This is so obviously not right that the papers went to town on it but the bottom line was that if found guilty he could face up seven years in prison.
This was not the end to his career that any of us could see. It is just as well that his mother died before knowing of it. Another thing to bear in mind is that he always had two houses one in lancashire and another in France. His mother left him her house and he also had another one in London. He is not hard up! How on earth can he qualify for legal aid.
