Dear Dr. McCorkindale,
Mortonjag has it on good authority that when Piniccio Robinson’s shameful ‘technicality’ wheeze goes ‘tits up’ (as now appears inevitable), the Trust committee intends to ‘plead poverty’ in an attempt to have it’s very own court action dismissed without costs.
Dr. McCorkindale, will you kindly answer this question honestly for the first time.
WHAT IS THE POTENTIAL TOTAL OUTLAY BY THE TRUST SHOULD THE ‘STARS OF ’79’ ACTION RUN ITS FULL COURSE AND THE DEFENDER WIN,…. AND…..
….. if that has changed significantly since 26th April, please explain how and why.
TRUST MEMBERS AND LOAN NOTE HOLDERS DESERVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH, DR. MCCORKINDALE. They should not have to join a moribund Trust forum, or surf the internet for updates about THEIR society!
They have had absolutely NO SAY in the ’79’ action, and consequently the committee (past and present), holds full responsibility for the farcical situation which now prevails.
Noting today’s report in the Greenock Telegraph regarding a ‘three way court battle’ following the Stars of ’79 Night – as well as Dr Ernie Newall’s misleading blog regarding the upcoming and related court hearing on May 9th – it is perhaps important to make our position clear.
As is known, GMST is currently pursuing its member and former director, Mr. James Gallacher as a result of a perceived shortfall in monies following the night in question. Contrary to claims made on Dr Newall’s blog this action has not been hidden from the GMST membership, deliberately or otherwise, having been publicised in our newsletter and on our website. More importantly, Dr Newall’s estimate of the costs incurred in pursuing this action is nowhere near accurate, and indeed represents a tiny fraction of the amount which he suggests. Whilst the case is on going, the board members of GMST will make no further comment, and will leave the business of judgment to the court. We will, however, update the membership on the progress and expense of those proceedings at the upcoming AGM. Any action likely to incur significant expenditure will ONLY proceed with the approval of the Trust members.
