Alistair Darling Apologises For His Bad And Fraudulent Investments

by | 17th, November 2008

ALISTAIR Darling writers a letter embargoed until June 2010:

Dear Northern Rock, Royal Bank of Scotland, HBOS and Lloyds TSB investor,

“The investments that you made in good faith never existed. The money was used in a futile attempt to recover losses incurred by me in the hope that I could repay everyone who invested.”

“I acted on my own in this deception. My wife and family were entirely unaware of my actions.

“My actions have been totally unforgivable and to any normal person unfathomable. I will remain eternally sorry for the pain and distress I have caused to each and every one of you.”

Ooops! The words are in fact those of one David Atkinson, although they may appear again at a later date

Mr Atkinson is being investigated by police over claims he conned dozens of people.

Police believe up to £3m could have disappeared – with some families losing life savings. The alarm was raised after monthly payments stopped.

So keep a close on your dividends from the aforesaid banks, and let us know when the dry up…

Spotter: AGW
