So who do you think has NDAs in their DNA?

So who do you think it is?

No need to elaborate as to what the poll is about here in order to avoid problems for JQW.

Anyone in the UK who needs to know more will find it all over this morning's papers.

Anyone who lives outside the UK will be able to read the name freely in theirs.

My bet would be Green

Wouldn't know but checked the frontpages to see what this is about.

But, what about the tv presenter that hunts sheep and goats in Scotland then?

Must be Branson. You don't choose to style yourself on Noel Edmonds and not have issues.

A twitter search for "Branson #NDA" returns no results. I'm taking that as confirmation.

Twiiter appear to be blocking searching for things related to this, though. Searches for #metoo and Daily Telegraph returned nothing at all for yesterday, when you'd expect there to be thousands of hits.

It's a cover up! Branson gets away again.

Perhaps Beardy Branson could take him up into outer space on that imminent Virgin Space Shuttle flight he's been
promising for the last twenty years and leave him there.

A person doesn't need Twitter, they just need to know someone who works in The Temple.

Retail billionaire Sir Philip Green has been named in Parliament as the businessman accused by a newspaper of sexual harassment.

Peter Hain, who identified him in the Lords, said it was his duty to name him, given the "serious and repeated" nature of the allegations.

On Tuesday, the Telegraph ran an article accusing an unnamed businessman of racial and sexual abuse of staff.

A legal injunction prevented the Telegraph from publishing his identity.

The Court of Appeal's ruling on Tuesday, blocking publication of Sir Philip's name, remains in place, but Lord Hain's statement, made under Parliamentary privilege, has been widely reported in the UK media.

Lord Hain said publication of the story was "clearly in the public interest".

The Daily Telegraph said it had spent eight months investigating allegations of bullying, intimidation and sexual harassment made against the man in question.

Interviews with five members of staff had revealed that victims had been paid "substantial sums" in return for legal commitments not to discuss their experiences, the Telegraph reported.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is a bit knife in the back stuff. Green has always been disliked by certain sections of the establishment for being a bit vulgar and ostentatious.

Not to mention the fact he misappropriated all that money from the BHS pension fund

Wikipedia wrote:On 20 October 2016, the House of Commons approved a motion to ask for the Honours Forfeiture Committee to recommend Green's knighthood be "cancelled and annulled". 100 MPs voted in favour of the motion, the first time MPs have proposed someone be stripped of a knighthood.The vote was not binding on the government. Following his paying £363m into the BHS pension scheme in 2017, and a decision in March 2018 not to ban him from being a company director, it appeared that he would not be stripped of his knighthood on this occasion.


Will he get away with it this time, though?

:lol: Exactly. There's a bit more to it than simply snobbery towards the nouveau riche!

By the look of it, fully deserved too.
