“I’m not ignoring you… I’m practicing selective hearing” is description used of individuals when they selectively choose to ignore anything they don’t want to actually hear. Clearly, at Westminster Magistrates’ Court yesterday, 91-year-old Bernie Ecclestone clearly practiced just such.
Speaking on behalf of this notorious skinflint and one of the few remaining friends of the non-sweating Duke of York during the short 5-minute hearing, Ecclestone’s barrister, Clare Montgomery QC, told chief magistrate Paul Goldspring that her client “was having problems hearing the proceedings.” He was thus allowed not to have sit in the dock. How terribly swell.
Responding on Twitter of a tone deaf, dwarf-like man his own daughters allegedly call ‘The Grinch,’ Matthew Steeples of The Steeple Times yesterday remarked:
“Bernie Ecclestone claimed he couldn’t hear when he appeared in court on a £400 million ($470 million, €474 million or درهم1.7 billion) fraud charge this morning. Strangely he hears whatever Putin and Prince Andrew have to say to him, yet he can’t hear prosecutors and a judge. Who on earth does this coffin dodger think he is?”
In spite of his ability to jet off anywhere on his private plane, Ecclestone was surprisingly granted unconditional bail by the judge before the next hearing at Southwark Crown Court on 19th September.
Meanwhile, elsewhere, in Leeds the trial of his ex-son-in-law James Stunt and 12 other defendants, relating to an alleged £266 million ($313 million, €315 million or درهم1.1 billion) money laundering and forgery ‘scam,’ has been ongoing since April. God only knows how much that has cost the nigh-on-empty public purse.
Both Stunt and Ecclestone deny the clearly very serious charges against them, but one thing’s for clear in all of this – millions in money has brought no kind of joy to either of these individuals.
