    In, other words Ken the "writ" would land on your doormat. :shock:

    As, David says it is always best to "err on the side of caution" unless you have large pockets. :)

    To suggest that anyone least of all the BHA investigate Barneys phone records is like putting their hand into the honey comb. You must buy the honey,but first Barney must be willing to sell.Same applies to all jockeys.

    "Sorry, y’er Honour, but I can’t afford to pay these damages and costs ‘cos I lost all me dosh backing the non-triers from those illustrious gents across the Court."

    "Well, in that case, Mr. Ken, you’ve afforded me no option but to send you to the debtors prison alongside the likes of all those other TRF’ers. Let that be a lesson to you."

    As far as censoring my posts Corm and Matron. Whilst I may have subsequently re-phrased my original post because I couldn’t remember exactly what I’d written, I stand by exactly what I wrote and it’s a matter of opinion as to whether it could be described as defamatory. I think not.

    I always take care in my postings to avoid libelling anyone even though I’m still waiting to hear from Nathan Hughes’ solicitors since I revealed the dark goings-on in his Escort Agency. It’s not my fault if he took it the wrong way…how was I to know he didn’t have a fleet of Ford motors.

    If anyone wants to make defamatory comments it’s quite simple to avoid them being open to charges of libel or slander: don’t aim them at a named individual but make them ambiguous generalisations aimed at no one in particular

    So while ‘trainer x is crooked’ may well be construed as libellous ‘there are several trainers I believe are crooked’ can’t be

    Personally I stand four-square behind Cormack and Co in this matter; the owners of a public message board should not be held accountable for what that public write.

    Too many on t’net think they have free rein to defame whoever they want and whatsmore seem to believe cyberworld provides immunity from the law

    It doesn’t, nor should it

    Didn’t see your post Ken, so that’s not aimed at you

    Delighted for him. Disgraceful that the person the government sold the Tote to held off paying for so long.

    Three cheers for Barney. Anybody who makes a mockery of the system like Barney, Ferdy and co do is fantastic for racing in my book.

    What a tiresome self-publicist.

    I’ll leave you to decide which one (or more) of that trio I mean.

    Barney is alright, but he’s also a hypocrite. I don’t mind him sticking the fingers up at the bookies, but he should be the last person to call anyone a ‘take out merchant’, as he has been a take out merchant from racing since he’s been involved in the sport. I will harbour a guess – and it is a guess – that he has taken millions more from racing than he’s contributed. One banana, two banana, i think Curley can probably afford to buy his own Island full of banana trees. I will need to get his book, as he is someone i do respect a bit.

    As I understand it all the proceeds of his coup will be going to the longstanding charitable project he established many years ago in Africa

    I was aware of his charitable organisation. However i’d imagine many of his earlier coups funded his own lifestyle. He was in this game for himself first and foremost. Donating money doesn’t make him any less of a take out merchant. He has made a comfortable living out of racing, and now he is having an exciting and fufilling retirement by his coups. I believe he and others help charities because it helps them first and foremost, although it’s still commedable. Yes i do think working with youngsters and the poor in Africa would be better than sitting in Ireland in the last years of your life.

    So you’re saying he’s a selfish person who donates tens, maybe hundreds, of thousands of pounds to charity.

    I understand exactly what you mean.

    (I don’t)
