Pizza Hardman Darren Atwater responded to a piece of spam email and ordered a ticket legitimately to attend Jim Mellon's minor trade show in islington today. The show claimed that 10,000 tickets had been booked although capacity in the rooms booked is sub 3,000. Whatever. Atwater attended this morning and saw plenty of empty space. He estimates that, including suits manning stands, there were perhaps 2,000 in the hall. Again, whatever.
Before we hear counter claims about electronic checking of attendees, the system in Islington clocks anyone entering the hall every time they enter so, for instance, a 20 a day smoker popping out for constant fixes might count as 21 attendees!
For what it is worth someone who was NOT evicted has sent us these photos - can you see the 10,000 folks inside the 3,000 person room? Or is it easier counting empty seats?
Mr Atwater spent a modest amount of time in the hall checking out the empty spaces, before being approached by burly security guards and two Mellon employees who claimed that he worked for an organisation that had written libelous pieces about the show. Really? we will run a front page correction if one innaccurate article about this event is evidenced. Natch we will have no corrections to run.
We know that Mellon gophers such as Richard "Gollum" Gill attend UK Investor Show. We do not escort them out in a fsacistic and humiliating manner if they have legitimately ordered tickets. We have nothing to hide. And we believe in showing common decency to ones fellow man. Even if that man is Gollum.
I am sure that Jim, being a good man, would wish to distance himself publicly from the actions of his employees in using the heavies to evict poor Darren in such a humiliating fashion ona bogus pretext.
We look forward to him forcing his goons to apologise in public for their shocking and fascistic behaviour and doing so soon.
