‘The Steeple Times’ exposes the truth about the shameless drag queen-esque peddler of junk Ian Towning
“Permatanned queen of the antiques trade” Ian Towning is best known for selling cheap tat on a market stall in an arcade off Chelsea’s Kings Road and appearing on a downbeat programme named Posh Pawn.
Featured in the Daily Telegraph and The Steeple Times in 2013 after he allegedly broke a statue, effeminate Towning featured in a preposterous Mail on Sunday story at the weekend where he was falsely lauded as an “art expert.”
Reacting to this comedic piece of “news,” a reader who wished not to be named, commented:
“I trusted Mr. Towning to sell an item of mine and then when I went to look at it in his so-called showroom, I discovered it was badly damaged.”
“His response to my horror was absolutely shocking. This shameless man has a vile and bitchy tongue and I can now attest he knows absolutely nothing about art also.”
“When I saw the Mail’s story, I laughed because this unpleasant specimen sells trinkets and gold chains for £100, but knows nothing about £5 million Monet paintings. If the Mail paid this lowbrow gossip for his non-story, they’ve been duped and should ask for a refund. For the first time ever, I’ve been left feeling terribly sorry for Viscount Rothermere.”
