Mart247 - You must be a fan of these new boring tracks (like Bahrain and Valencia) which force the traditional tracks out. Personally I miss the San Marino GP, French GP, US GP, along with the numerous others that have been lost do to Bernie's demands.

Well lets see this supposedly "concrete evidence" then. So far it sounds like empty claims and the startings of a blackmail case by this disgruntled banker, who is quite possibly trying to take as many people down with him as possible.

Sadly no one will believe this theory as everyone thinks MrE is the devil incarnite so no chance of a balanced discussion on this one then. The villagers will be out with flaming torches and pitchforks tonight trying to storm MrE's mansion.

i've heard of doubting thomas, now we have doubting andrew!

andrew, you are usually castigating bernie from a height. what has made you turn into a fan of his? i prefer to believe the lawyers.

Not casting doubt but looking at his sensibly. There are always 2 sides to evry story and so far we have only heard one from a disgruntled banker.

As for MrE, I neither like him or hate him but do have a huge amount of respect of what he has achieved and have time for what he says. I don't however, have time for media hacks and lawyers who are out to make a name for themselves by making various claims yet offer nothing to back up thier claims.

Basically, it's a case of crap or get off the pot for this banker with his claims.

BBC news Friday 22 September 2000, in March 2 1998 BE cashes the £1m cheque that labour returned to him, if it had not been cashed by May labour says it would have given the money to charity.
And 24 September 2000, Tony Blair, we made it clear we couldn't accept any further donations, it wasn't a question of deciding to do it because the journalists had inquired.
