I can't help wondering what the critical mass of stupid is, that could prove dangerous. Also, don't they have to report borders, even freeloaders if they are in a council flat?

I'm picturing the two barons looking down from the upstairs window of a townhouse, yelling at a group of bailiffs that they can't come in because they've sovereignly declared that the drawbridge is up. Meanwhile, they've got a pot of mazola heating on the stove.

Maybe they get peerage recognition if they declare their council flat the Barony of the Lost Cause.

Can someone please just give a summary of his reason for eviction?
From what I can see is it: Has Interest only mortgage, with endowment policy. Splits with wife. Wife wants her half. Mortgage term ends, endowment is short, wife wants to sell to meet shortfall and split the rest, Baron Von Trampbeard refuses to leave/sell, court orders sale/him to leave, he stalls end up evicted losing a lot of the cash he would have ended up with if he just acted sensibly in the first place.

Pretty much, but I don't think we know what the ex-wife originally wanted. By the time we join the story, David has refused to follow any orders, or even participate in any proceedings, forcing the court to order the house sold. We can't rule out that the ex-wife may have wanted to buy out David, or tried to negotiate some other outcome.

The endowment shortfall was only about 7,000 GBP. Not sure if that was the entire shortfall or just David's share of it, but a manageable amount either way. David even gets a check for his share of the endowment (it's in one of his massive packets). David continued to assert that the endowment covered the mortgage shortfall, and there was no more mortgage to collect on. The banks, court, and lawyers told him otherwise; he went deeper and deeper into crazy town.

But you're right that he hurt himself by being a prat. Such a small amount owed suggests there was a good amount of value in the home that he could have shared in the sale of. After fines, penalties, legal fees (which I hope she's billing him for), and everything else he'll have nothing left.

Good Lord, that is an awful resume. He hasn't been employed since 2007; all his skills are laughably out of date; and it's full of irrelevant things (welding, music, lists of unremarkable college courses taken in 1993). His listed address of James Lee House, Brick Street, Warrington is a homeless shelter. And his claimed "ability to communicate at all levels" needs no further comment.

Also notice his security clearance that he claims to still have ran out in 2010 according to his CV.

I checked James Lee House on Street View. Seems like a pretty decent place. Hopefully Ward has more sense than Dean Kory, a Canadian I write about, who just got kicked out of a Salvation Army hostel in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Getting evicted from the Sally Anne takes some work but Dean was up to the task and did a repeat performance a few nights later at another hostel.

I wonder if I'll ever bump into the famous Baron when I attend the Wolves games. That would be interesting- maybe I could leave him a tip- pay your mortgage!

Yes, it's a bit pathetic. And so is his blather on FB, where he's still trying to make this into a sacrificial triumph against the system - "the only guy in 800 years to win this in court" etc.

But... Credit where it's due, if he's going to get off his arse and resume useful employment then this could be the beginning of recovery. The CV is badly out-of-date, but there was a time in BvT's life where he held moderately responsible jobs within the corporate bureaucracy. He had real respect and credibility, earned by his competence. He had money in his pocket, maybe a company car and pension scheme etc. Some of the scroungers on his side of the fence would sneer and call it selling-out, but if BvT can take the first steps towards recovering some of that productive status then I'll be the first to shake his hand (virtually).

If he's reading this, I would suggest looking for work experience with a charity first. Rebuilding old corporate desktops for giveaway internet terminals, for example. Someone with an entrepreneurial bent could create that project with a room, a couple of workbenches, a basic toolbox and occasional use of a small van. Voluntary work will also refresh his timekeeping and earn a current reference.

I had the same thought. In fact, I put together some free resume advice for Mr Ward:

1. Update your skills. If you had all those skills and certifications, it shouldn't be too hard to get re-certified on the current equivalents. At least begin working on this, to show prospective employers you are serious about getting back into the field.

2. Try to explain what you've been doing the last 10 years. Any side projects? Take time off to raise family? Take classes? Anything positive you can put here would help. (Needless to say, "fighting an 8 year war because using force in a civil matter is terrorism" is not correct.) And, given the nature of modern background checks and social media, your little house spat is probably going to turn up. You'd better think about how you're going to explain that to anyone who asks about it.

3. Shorten your resume by half. You don't need your complete university curriculum from 1993. Just put the diplomas/certs earned, maybe 1-2 special topics if applicable to the job you seek. Put your building and music hobbies in a very brief "interests" section, if you must list them at all.

4. Remove everything that is expired. (The expired security clearance might be worth keeping, as this implies you could get one again if necessary.) Use vague, non-technology-specific descriptors, e.g. "TCP/IP & Networking Certified" vs. "WindowsNT/2000/2003." Try to couch the fact that your Windows skills are out of date.

5. Your descriptions of past jobs are pretty solid. Tighten those up a little, and make your work experience the focus of your resume.

6. Remove personal comments about what you enjoyed, the details of getting your security clearance, etc. That's for the interview, not the resume.

7. Take a people skills class. You can't call people idiots and terrorists, even if you're right, which you are not. Even in a skill-heavy industry like IT, companies are more interested in "right fit" personalities than hard skill sets. Skill deficiencies can be overcome; being a jerk can't. Avail yourself of any getting-a-job type classes you can find, and take their advice to heart. A little humility would go a long way.

While the suggestions are all well and good, and I honestly think they are a good idea, I am of the opinion, that it is Baron Boring's ever so charming personality and winning ways and general people skills that are, and have been, his chief detriment, and, I also think, more than likely the fount of most all of his problems.

If his latest tech accomplishment was installing XP, then his skills are woefully out of date, and he doesn't strike me as the type who takes learning from someone else lightly, or at all.

I've known some techs who despite their quite honestly awesome skills, were such incredibly unsocial and unpleasant people that they couldn't stay hired anywhere and eventually couldn't get hired because of their track record. I don't think the awesome part is included in his skill set, but I do think the incredibly unsocial and unpleasant is.

Yes, his character is naturally the first concern. Will he cope with working at entry-level and taking direction from a pimply graduate, will he cope with all the petty compliance and process of a modern workplace? Easy to imagine this failing very badly. But he worked his way up once before, and the CV suggests he was once adequately capable with human interaction. If he has sufficient discipline and motivation, he can do this again.

I suspect his best chance is to start in an informal voluntary role where he can gain strong appreciation and some level of autonomy, easing the ego shock etc. Be the Mr Fixit for a number of small charities, maintaining their decrepit IT systems. This will give him time to research and learn new skills (eg IPv6) at a gradual and practical pace, and each time he completes a job he can bask in "thank you David, you're wonderful".

I realise now that I am writing this for BvT's personal attention, despite all the mockery I really want him to get back on his feet. My sentimentality has always been a barrier to success in Mr Soros's organisation.
