Quoted from marinerdazza


Yes, not something one of his mates could do. And even if he wins he would realistically only claim back 60% of his costs.


It’s a tall order proving defamation if you’ve already traduced your own character by forming a redevelopment business partnership with a known fraudster, then introducing him to the council where you were a senior member of cabinet responsible for redevelopment, then considered accepting the same fraudster’s money at a company that you controlled. You’d think that you wouldn’t want to highlight cases where you might have broken conflict of interest principles. Much less give someone the opportunity in a public forum like a court to answer accusations that you had breached public safety regulations by inviting a member of the public to an event from which members of the public were banned.

Only an idiot would want to draw that to the attention of the courts and have your actions scrutinised again.

Of course it might not be ‘Honest’ John bringing a case of defamation. Imagine if you were a person who’d spent his whole career in the legal profession, and were now the director of a high profile local public company, trying to prove defamation when you’d defended doing business with a convicted fraudster on the basis that ‘no individuals were victims only banks or building societies’. Imagine what a laughing stock you’d make of yourself in court.

Imagine what an idiot either of those people would be to try this.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Very good. They never, ever think things through, do they?

Again certain people show their true colours by attacking the voice of the fans over and over. Tell us which parts were not facts John, what has anybody said here that isn't true, and if so show us why you go out your way to bully the fans into keeping quiet? No amount of shutting down websites and dragging fans into your office for a "chat" will save you. Not this time.

These are not the actions of somebody dealing with false rumours about them, this is somebody with skeletons in the closet that have been exposed and now they are getting desperate. Let us remember that John Lydon was once censored for defamation when exposing Jimmy Saville on the BBC decades before his career was tarnished. Demonising the whistle blowers is not a good look when the truth comes out and some people are left with egg on their face.

A few people have written personal insults which is uncalled for, less just move forward now.

I personally wouldn't be against anyone getting banned who's deemed to be sending personal insults on here. The fishy is a well known, active forum in England let alone Grimsby. Let's not ruin that please.

This thread needs to be removed.

IT IS NO LONGER RELEVANT 😄😄👍👍⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️😄😄😄 UTM


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'
