Anyone who was a pistol shooter at the time of Dunblane will remember the bitter, outrageous rantings and posturings of David Mellor MP, calling us maniacs, perverts and more besides. This loathsome individual went the well-trodden MP's route of sordid sex scandal, lost seat and well deserved political obscurity. He turned up as a presenter on Classic FM, and also had a directorship in a property company, Wharf Land Investments. After a protracted court case, Wharf Land has been placed in administration, and the cause of it, a deal near Reading involving Russian entrepreneur Pavel Lisitsin, has been described in a Court of Appeal ruling as "dishonest".
That's pretty diplomatic, the published details suggest that it was a real wide-boy effort:
Mr Lisitsin has been awarded £1.4 million, hopefully Mr Mellor will end up living in a cardboard box under a railway arch as a result. He is probably lucky, there is ample anecdotal evidence to suggest that Russian business deals that go pear shaped end with a vist from a hitman.
Serves you right, you ugly *******.
