And-- despite the rumoured impending liquidation of PAFC-- Brent will still take time (and risk the future of PAFC) trying to screw a better deal out of the creditors, rather than match BIL and get the deal done.
Which is exactly what I thought.
The only thing that puzzles me is why everyone seems to think Heaney is the Devil incarnate and Brent is our saviour.
They are both the same-businessmen trying to make a profit.
As such, they, and their deals, should both be treated the same.
You really are a piece of work Grovehill, that stance is the worst kind of head burying.
Brent didn't see why certain creditors hands should be greased over all the others, I too find that odd, especially when those hands are the very people who helped contribute to this mess. So yes, Heaney offered more to creditors, but that doesn't make him the best deal for creditors if as Ian says the due dilligence on GUILFOYLE's part was so lacking in not researching thet Heaney couldn't do the deal he was offering.
Screw a better deal?, get to f**k, he wants the same deal he put on the table in March. Why should he pay more for the poor 'choices' Guilfoyle made (still feel it was a pre-pack - see the greasing of palms above) and the manner in which he has continued to flog this dead horse bid ever since. Between them the three amigos have added £2,000,000 to the overall debts since gaining PB status, why should anyone but they be liable for that, least of all the fella who made what was without doubt the most credible (if not the most financially lucrative for 'certain' creditors) bid on the table in the first place.
Had JB been given PB status, it'd all be sorted months ago and those costs would have been actively reduced, JB was unable to do that because of Guilfoyle's actions, that should come from Guilfoyles fee...........but no, for the priviledge of screwing him out of millions Guilfoyle wants a six figure fee. Presumably you see that as fair Grovehill?.
They are not the same, i'll give you some words and you pin them on one or other of James Brent or Kevin Heaney...........
JB City 5 v 0 Heaney Village.
Heaney is portrayed as the devil incarnate because he is, Brent is portrayed as the saviour because that is what he'll be..............if only Guilfoyle would give him the chance.
