The pension thing really made me angry. Thought that was sorted after the Maxwell scandal. Seems not..

Well exactly. Repugnant horrible little man whose actions have sunk several large companies.  Odious person.  Not a pretty picture either.

An Ex partner was a retail designer/buyer she turned down a job offer with the group after a mate told her about his record of bullying and sexual harassment . Nasty piece of work.

Close shave.

Back in the late '70's, an ex-girlfriend followed me south when I left the RAF and having been PA to Colin Chapman back in Norfolk, she was looking for something equally, how shall we say, out of the ordinary.

She popped along to a local big house in the country for an interview for a job as a nanny-cum-PA. (Quite how that would have worked was anyone's guess, but that was what 'madam and sir' wanted.)

'Madam' turned out to be Soraya, husband to Adnan. Despite the billions and the lack of a commute, she managed to turn down the offer from the Khashoggis. Often wonder what might have been...

Said it before I'll say it again you should write a book of all these little stories you have. An autobrianography as it were
