Mortonjag’s regular readers understand why no Greenock Morton Trust A.G.M. took place in 2015. When Jim Gallacher mentioned that omission at the 2016 meeting, it was quickly brushed aside by Chairman Robinson. Apparently they ‘Never seemed to get around to it.’
When is suits Mr. Robinson’s ends to do everything ‘by the book’, everyone gets a sanctimonious lecture about it. When it doesn’t, he transmutes to a vastly experienced liar!
The missing 2015 A.G.M. leaves unanswered questions about the legitimacy of proceedings since 2014, but possession is ‘nine tenths of the law’, and so, from the Spring of 2016, certain Trust members attempted to ensure that there would be no repeat of the previous year’s fiasco.
One member – a respected local professional, was pressurising the Chairman on those missing 2014 accounts, a concerned ‘ex-pat’ who hoped to attend the A.G.M. while ‘home’, was pressing the Secretary for a date, Jim Gallacher was pushing for the Small Claims action to be put on the agenda, and Mortonjag wished his membership re-instated.
The 2014 accounts and ‘hidden’ directors’ report containing Robinson’s ‘highly unlikely’ comment had surfaced, and rumour was that the Trustee had kicked out his dodgy claim. The Fuhrer and his underlings were coming under pressure!
Mortonjag continues to dispute his unconstitutional expulsion from Trust membership in 2011, and had asked the Secretary for the matter to be placed on the agenda. When later informed that it would be ‘dealt with’ under ‘A.O.B.’, his solicitor advised that he should be permitted to attend as an ‘interested party’.
BUSINESS FOR GENERAL MEETINGS MUST BE LISTED ON THE AGENDA TO ALLOW MEMBERS PRIOR CONSIDERATION. THAT IS CLEARLY SPELLED OUT IN THE TRUST CONSTITUTION, BUT,
Herr Fuhrer Robinson had dictated that both G.M.S.T. v Gallacher and Mortonjag’s membership were to be ‘discussed’ under ‘A.O.B.’. and so Mortonjag wrote to the secretary:
FUHRER ROBINSON WAS NOT ‘COPIED IN’, BUT FUHRER ROBINSON REPLIED.
Presumably all incoming email is vetted firstly by the Fuhrer as is only right and proper in any well organised autocracy.
Mortonjag already knew about the Toadmeister’s latest scam, and insisted that he planned to attend.
Suddenly Nasty Nick was once again into PRIVATE correspondence between Mortonjag and the Trust Secretary.
HIS EMAIL WAS FOR THE BENEFIT OF COPIED-IN COMMITTEE MEMBERS, RATHER THAN MORTONJAG, AND WAS ‘A PACK OF LIES’.
THE MORTON DIRECTOR DID NOT PASS COPIES OF THE ‘OFFENDING’ LETTER TO EITHER THE A.I.B. OR CARRINGTON DEAN, NOR DID HE ‘ASK FOR THEIR COMMENTS’.
When Mortonjag cited the substantial evidence which is already published on this blog, the lying toad moved into top gear.
He was correct on one point. Mortonjag could not see non-existent correspondence – and he wasn’t finished yet –
For the benefit of ‘copied in’ committee members, a repetition of Nick Robinson’s blatant lies. One solitary letter eventually found its way to ‘Dear Iain’, but this time Piniccio didn’t quite get the expected response from his fellow bean counter. That’s for another time.
STILL – he banged on!
As Mortonjag would NOT be permitted entry to the meeting because he knew far too much, and might expose the lying toad, he spent his £30 ‘petrol money’ on the Monkey and Fing’s Halloween outfits. Said toad’s ‘explanation’ for taking over the secretary’s role was further evidence that said toad had completely lost sight of reality.
For over five years Nick Robinson had repeatedly claimed that Mortonjag was mentally ill, talking nonsense, and publishing inaccurate legal advice.
He had sent the local police on a wasted journey to Mortonjag’s home after being exposed as a LIAR on this blog, had pompously attempted to undermine Mortonjag’s credibility with two firms of solicitors, and in his capacity as Trust Chairman, had regularly defamed Mortonjag on the Trust forum.
BUT, when arrogant bully boy’s big chance came to confront his madman nemesis on his own patch, backed up by Plonker Feeney and the rest of his henchmen, he ‘shat it’. That sanctimonious indignation at Mortonjag’s legitimate concerns just doesn’t wash.
When the big day arrived, six committee members and five minions appeared. That did not constitute the requisite quorum, but at Toad Central they make it up as they go along. 27 ANONYMOUS proxy votes indeed!!! Just in case they had to outvote the members!
HERE ARE THE MINUTES WITH SOME COMMENTARY BY MORTONJAG!
GMST AGM Meeting Tuesday 6th September 2016 @ 7.00pm
Attendees: Nick Robinson, Mary Sellar, Allan Feeney, Claire Melville, Laura Woghlemuth, Chris McEleny, Jim Gallaher, Eric Marshall, Hamish MacLeod, Stuart Duncan, Ian Miller
Proxy Votes: 27 Apologies: Ryan Deegan, Andrew Ward
NR welcomed everyone to the meeting.
Minutes from last meeting on 28th July 2014 were approved by all trustees. Allan proposed the minutes and this was seconded by Ian Miller
NO MENTION WHATSOEVER OF THE MISSING 2015 A.G.M.
NO MENTION WHATSOEVER OF THE MISSING 2014 ACCOUNTS!
These were handed out to members to read at the meeting. These accounts are currently at the auditors to be reviewed. There is a further £5k in the bank than last year, even after contribution to youth development. We also did receive £5k from an old Morton fan who left this to us in his will.
Election/Re-Election Of Trustees NR will be standing down as Chairman of the Trust due to other work commitments. Nick would continue to be a member of the board until after the court case has been decided and then he will stand down. He will however, continue to complete the accounts for the Trust. Allan Feeney was elected by the board as the new Chairman. SD thanked NR for all of his efforts over the years.
ALLAN FEENEY WAS ELECTED BY THE BOARD AS THE NEW CHAIRMAN BUT ALMOST FOUR MONTHS LATER THE TRUST SOLICITOR WAS STILL TAKING INSTRUCTIONS FROM ‘CHAIRMAN’ ROBINSON AND HADN’T A CLUE WHO FEENEY WAS!
There are a number of members up for the re-election which included, Claire Melville, Laura Woghlemuth and Nick Robinson. SD proposed their re-election and this was seconded by Hamish McLeod.
AOB There are a number of issue that need to be addressed, which is as follows:-
ISSUES WHICH ‘NEEDED TO BE ADDRESSED’ SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THE AGENDA FOR DISCUSSION. THAT WAS A CONSTITUTIONAL FARCE!
The trust identified a short fall in money after the Stars of 79 event and decided to take proceedings again the person involved.
THE TRUST DID NOT TAKE PROCEEDINGS AGAINST ‘THE PERSON INVOLVED’. SEAN DONNELLY WAS NEVER PURSUED FOR HIS MISSING TICKET INCOME.
However, this person was involved in a Trust Deed and it was felt that this would be pointless as we could not recover the monies owing. This action has now come back and is ongoing. The trust offered to walk away with each party to pay their own costs, however, this has not been accepted by the other party as they are wishing to recover their costs. A date in November has been set for court with one day currently being set aside by the judge. The position of the Trust is that if we accept offer to settle we will need to pay substantial costs.
A circular will be sent to the members to outline the options for the Trust and Jim Gallaher was asked the question, what does substantial mean?
Chris McEleny raised the point that it was unfair for Jim Gallaher to be present since we are discussing an active court case in which he is involved. Chris felt that it was academic since if there was a large claim awarded then the Trust would just be wound up and is only liable for the amount that the Trust has available.
SD raised the point the monies owed by Jim for the legal fees for Dr Newell should infact be written off and Jim Gallaher is under no obligation to pay any monies to Dr Newell.
S.D. HADN’T A CLUE! HE CAN’T EVEN TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIVE AND TEN POUND NOTES!
It was suggested that we have an EGM and it was asked if Jim Gallaher was willing to be excluded due to the conflict of interests. This was proposed by SD and this was seconded by Eric Marshall. Jim Gallaher was in agreement not to attend the meeting.
THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED BEFORE THE ACTION WAS EVER RAISED. PROGRESS AT LAST – OR SO IT SEEMED!
Dr Newell was expelled from the trust after an EGM in June 2011 due to his behaviour. Dr Newell now states that his expulsion was unconstitutional and he would like to rejoin as a trust member.
DR NEWALL WAS UNCONSTITUTIONALLY EXPELLED FOR QUESTIONING TRUST COMMITTEE BULLY BOYS. NOTHING HAD CHANGED!
SD asked what the rules state regarding inclusion. The Chairman advised that DR Newell would need to get the backing of 50 members to have an EGM. At this EGM he could then put his case forward and would then need the backing of 2/3 of the members present in order to re-join the Trust. This option is still open to Dr Newell and it agreed by all at the meeting that this would stand these as these are the rules of the Trust.
MORTONJAG WAS UNWELCOME.
Meeting closed 20.03.
NEXT TIME – THAT E.G.M. IS VETOED ON MYSTERIOUS. ‘LEGAL ADVICE’
