    mmmm now watch all his fellow MPs come out out and say oh how wrong the press are lol,very old saying “No smoke without fire”

  4. Of course Harvey Proctor’s home being searched means very little, much in the same way it did for Sir Cliff, not enough evidence for an arrest for either. Expect these news stories to die away very quickly.

    iirc at least one investor stated he never expected the shop to thrive or that he would get his cash back.
