I wonder if any glimmering of reflection has yet touched TC's mind, as he sees nostalgic pictures of the home and life he once had? Does he remember posing for this photo, in happier times? Back when he owned a small but homely bungalow with a bit of garden and a garage, and he owed the bank a mere £40,000?

Image

Does he perhaps regret not reaching a sensible settlement with B&B? Accepting a charge against the eventual value of the house, or selling his £140,000 house and buying a £100,000 home outright? Inviting his wealthy internet tycoon son to purchase a half-share of the property, as a tax-free investment? So many ways this could have been resolved.

Or, does he sit now with quiet pride, remembering the lengthy court battles and legal bills, how scores of bailiffs had to make repeat visits to evict him, and especially that the cost of all this was recovered from the sale of his home? Does it please him to have burned £100,000 in a Götterdämmerung of petulance, winning his place in the pantheon of stupid old men?

You are forgetting 'money' is a tool of the oppressive.

So I'm sure when Craig (and co) has no equity in a few years time (not that I wish Tom Ill will) he will soon find that he was completely wrong, and that the average worker does get a bit of reward later in life, he will repent.

Didn't he also turn down the offer of crowdfunding from his supporters? At the peak of his popularity, before the facts became known, he may well have raised the £40k, or at least a hefty chunk of it.

No. he's far too dim even to remember he stopped paying the mortgage and that he received the "Unicorn" !!!1!!!!.

I don't wish Tom ill will either, but it's obvious that this battle has taken its toll. He looks much younger and healthier in that picture than he does now. I remember so many Amanda posts to the effect of "dad's really been researching his case hard, and is going to stick it to them in court tomorrow," only to be summarily swatted away time after time. I can't help but picture ol' Tom late at night by candlelight, poring through legal concepts he doesn't understand, and wouldn't matter to his case even if he did.

And some people are just too stupid to understand concepts like lost equity. At no point did anyone in the family demonstrate any understanding of what was at risk. Craig and Amanda seem to have inherited their father's ignorant, short-sighted, pig-headed personality. I doubt it will ever dawn on them what this misadventure cost them.

I agree, I think it's a figure someone plucked out of the air that's now being parroted as gospel. To pay three times the capital in 25 years would mean an average interest rate of 12%.


I was practicing law, in the early 80s, when an interest rate of 12% would have seemed cheap. I remember going over settlement sheets for real estate closings with clients; and they would often ask why their interest payments, over the term of the mortgage, were many times the principal amount being borrowed. I would explain that those interest payments added up; and were they not paying almost all interest, in their earliest mortgage payments, that figure would be even higher.


I think I'm in the unfortunate position of being able to "boast" of paying the highest interest rate of all of you. When my mortgage was renewed in the early 80's I was quoted a 21% interest rate. I actually made an arrangement with the creditor to have a series of one-month mortgages for the next six months. Every month I'd pay a fee for a new mortgage and it would be set at the then-current rate. I did this because I couldn't see interest rates getting any higher, the economy would collapse. If rates didn't drop nobody would be able to pay their debts. So I didn't want to lock in at rates I didn't think would be sustained. In six months they were well down and I went back to a regular mortgage.

Ol' grandad is attending the 50th anniversary of his high school graduation next week. There's been some attrition since the 25th, including the girl I took to grad.

Have I ever told you about how, way back, tomatoes tasted like tomatoes and strawberries tasted like strwberries?

It's been two weeks since the trial of Andy pears for his actions during the Crawford eviction, but he is being very quite about it. Has any news emerged yet
