    Maybe Darren was @ Dynamo to pay back the courts.

    Pretty certain Darren was struck off. That bloke says he's ICAEW registered. It would be an offence to tell lies about that. At least I think so anyway. Mind you we all know the porkies the real DU told.

    Well, considering the source you'd have to think that's a possibility. But....

    So they made him head of a department, not knowing where he'd been anytime in the last five years or confirming any of his work history? Without any evidence that he'd not been an involuntary guest of Her Majesty? 'Nice to meet you, we haven't confirmed your credentials or history, we hope you know your stuff and you seem nice, here's the key to our new division, go for it.'

    IMO DJU was speaking truth on that. MS' Tait Walker discovery fits it. At the very least, someone they knew convinced them he was good enough to do the job (they were right). Someone at Henton's knew.

    Questions he will only answer for the authorities, if forced to, and not to anyone else. That's dead certain.

    That I didn't know. Nothing would surprise me when it comes to this.

    Hentons (who own Dynamo) look like a decent outfit. Darren was helpful, friendly and had something about him here. I reckon they probably saw that in the interview and because of this they weren't as diligent checking his work history as they should have been. That being said it could be true as it seems strange they would launch Dynamo without already having a head of department in place.

    With thanks to my mate "IHaveAnIphoneX-YouHaveASamsung-ImSorryToHearThat" for pointing this out to me. And he is still wondering what other Dynamo clients will do.....
