JUICY

Where are you hearing Sugar? Hearsay and rumours? Bigly if verified.
This use of NDA is shocking though. If I were the Telegraph I’d be peppering that story with clues for the cryptic crossword fans to puzzle over and get the info out that way...

Kid works in London. Just rumor but the Sug has made some dodgy comments before. It shows how the legal system favors the rich.......and gypos.

NDAs shouldn't be used or even be legally viable when it comes to the potential of laws being broken. Not even sure of the legalities of a NDA in that regard.

That being said, accusations played through the media can be devastating to the wrongly accused. We got some awesome newspapers in the UK. Hell even the BBC's fell into this category in the past, they're usually on point with libel.

With all that being said, media plays a strong role in highlighting such issues, when it comes to laws and potentially informing others of the wrong un's in society I dare say they almost have a duty to print.

It's a person trying to stop salacious reporting of an allegation. Many allegations are false and vexatious, but once that is revealed the damage to the accused has been done.

So in the land of Savile, they want to block these people from being named in public? If there is enough evidence to prove that this "Businessman" is as they say, then they should release the name and state the evidence. Though in the land of Savile where certain unelectable "political figures" could be named as well, the members of parliament will surely fight tooth and nail to not allow for that nonsense. "For Queen and Country" they shout while trying to cover up the filth that they have. just sad.

I don’t know about Britain, but in the US all convictions are public record (I think unless they’ve been expunged, I’m not sure how that works). I’m pretty sure arrests are public record, too.

NDAs are used when someone pays a settlement in a civil suit, not a criminal case. The matter is settled out of court and the person who signs the NDA is basically saying “I’m taking this extra large sum of money and agreeing it covers all the damage and I will never speak of this again.” Not all settlements have NDAs, it depends on how the settlement is negotiated. A settlement is also not an admission of guilt, though it is paying for a problem to go away, so it usually still looks pretty suspicious.

Thats what I thought too. Either way someone is obviously guilty because they paid people off.
We shall see....hopefully. there was that Cliff Richard episode though.

What has this got to do with Saville? Saville was a child abusing criminal. This is a businessman who has apparently obtained an injunction to enforce NDA's in relation to civil claims, not criminal. Get real.

Meanwhile all the nonces in the long standing Westminster paedophile ring are free to continue their vile practices with impunity.

More deflection?

True, but this story does not seem to be about nonces? Apparently, the "Businessman" might be named in PMQ's (ie privileged).

Of course you're right.

Any speculation on the person's identity is exactly that; unfounded speculation.

If his identity is going to come out into the public domain I can't imagine for one minute that he'll be a major Tory supporter or donor to the party coffers.

Philip Green has already been pretty much discredited and disowned so it would come as no surprise if he was offered up as the sacrificial lamb.

How about it being James Dyson, not exactly beloved of The Establishment and no doubt The Remainers would be overjoyed?

Peeps are being a bit hard on Dyson today. The dude did double the amount of engineeers in the UK.

I don't think that this has anything to do with politics. It's about an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment/racial abuse by the Telegraph where the alleged victims have been paid off/silenced by signing NDA's.

I don't think the Govt is in control of this unless folk will say that the judiciary is the Govt etc, which is far from the case despite what some of our American friends think.

So, to speculation. Green - yes please! Revolting individual. Hope it's him. Dyson? Crossed my mind too. The beardy herbert with the pointy finger? Does not sound like his style. Who knows, though?

To be fair he hasn't helped himself at times but since he came out as openly pro-Brexit The Remainers have done everything possible to discredit him.

For that one fact alone I hope its not him.

Ha ha.
You should know my friend that EVERYTHING has something to do with politics and pushing a political agenda.

With you on this....a truly horrible human being.

I hope its not him....but he's certainly no friend of The Establishment.

If this is deflection, which it could be (could also be media grabbing hold of a story released by accident or whatever) then I don't think they would send Sugar to the slaughter house. He's a Lord after all.

Oh hang on - I just typed that then something in my head is telling me he is a labour doner, or at least was. Maybe the Tories would slaughter the Sugar.
