You haven't missed much, it's a sad and confusing tale, presented in a baffling ramble to camera. Mr Quaile appears to be ill-equipped to deal with civilian life. Upon retiring from the armed forces he came up with some grand idea of starting a charity for veterans (as if there wasn't ample provision from established national charities). This doesn't seem to have gone beyond registering the domain operationrecovery.co.uk.
As far as I can tell Quail & his meek missus obtained a tenancy for a dilapidated farmhouse, which they intended to refurbish as their family home and headquarters. I assume they didn't take professional advice, because they were later surprised to discover that this was a dodgy sub-letting arrangement and they didn't actually have any rights of occupancy. The land and buildings were already owned by a group of property developers (mentioned by footloose in the post above) who had substantial plans for the site (http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/l ... w-11651151
Quaile and his partner wanted the property developers to recognise them as legitimate tenants and carry out extensive refurbishments to the farmhouse so they could continue to live there. The property developers initially entertained this possibility, but negotiations ran onto the rocks. Quaile wanted the developers to recognise and honour various promises which he believed he had been given by others during the dodgy sub-letting period. Unfortunately he overplayed his hand, and the developers decided it was more trouble than it was worth.
And so we arrive in the courts. Quaile believed that along the way he had established some kind of enforceable tenancy which the developers were obliged to recognise. The developers believed he had no such thing, and could therefore be turfed off the site. Quaile abandoned professional representation and pursued a template FMOTL approach, with predictable results.
It's a sad situation. Quaile doesn't seem to be a dishonest sort of chap, just not very bright. The third youtube video descends into a baffling ramble about promises which were supposedly made and broken by a confusing swarm of lawyers and agents, accusations of corruption and freemasonry, shadowy censorship of local media, fraud and broken cookers. The local MP is bent because he won't help, the judge is bent because he ruled against them, etc.
Quaile can't get his head round the possibility that he has sunk his family's life savings into a wild goose chase. He is in frantic denial, and his mousy missus is loyally trotting alongside. It is painful to watch him blundering around, failing to understand his situation. The third youtube video includes a 20 minute complaint because he wasn't allowed to claim against the developer's insurance. He seems to believe that if he makes a list of grievances and losses, they should just send him a cheque.
I'm going to have to stop, it's going on for hours without any coherent narrative or structure.
