It's finance and people have lost their pensions, so no one will be interested. Pension theft seems to be a great way to con the public and to get away with.

6 Aston Martins, 3 Range Rovers and an F Type jag owned by a company without a penny to produce bikes for customers who had already paid for them.

He was due at the offices of the Pensions Regulator today to answer questions on where, why and how the pensioners money had been used.

ITV news are on his tail and attempted to ask him questions on what he had been doing when he left some offices earlier in the week. there is a video of it on their twitter news page.

There have also been three new Norton companies set up last week with offshore connections.

I sincerely hope they don’t think that the company can continue with him having any involvement at all.

I would think there is a large group of bikers and employees interested to know where he is.

I hope SOCA and the group set up to investigate what happens to the proceeds of crime are taking an interest in this.

Fascinating. I knew he'd been involved with Spondon, but never realised what he had done to them :^

He has probably singlehandedly finished the Norton name for good.

I’ll chip in, who’s with me?

We have engineers, lawyers, accountants, IT and photographers amongst us, pretty much everyone we need, plenty of bike knowledge and passion.

We couldn’t do a worse job that he did (lol)

Who would trust the Norton name again unless it was owned by a massive company?
