Left because of the level of partnership offer received from them and differences in vision, plus the Bartfields opportunity being too good to turn down in light of the above offer.
    Ahhh, but that's exactly what Darren Upton would say, isn't it?

    Could you also send copies of your last 50 yeara bank statements just to make sure it's not a 'holiday' at Her Majesties pleasure.

    To be honest, if I were Darren Roberts I would simply do a blog post on his company website, complete with picture, clearing up the misunderstanding

    I know this is an extremely long shot but theoretically Darren Upton could have changed his name to Darren Roberts and then asked a colleague to pretend to be him if clients come calling/public situations.

    Like I say, an incredible long shot.

And he’s not defended himself or scotched any of the rumours really. Could be entirely innocent but it does begin to smell a bit.

    Who told you that? On the basis of what evidence?

    I was told that Theresa May knew what she was doing, but that doesn't make it true.

    And again - I would be wary of making these kind of statements without facts to back them up beyond your hearsay. We live in litigious times.

    I'd be wary of making that accusation in public. Either share the facts or stop.

    Not sure it's possible to close my account but I wish to do this due to dulluded kittens sarcastic uncalled for posts.




    I don't want to be part of a forum where this is allowed. feedback and different opinions is great but don't feel dulled kittens posts should be on here. it's like he/she is actively looking to cause a fight/argument.

    If not, I'll spell it out for you: you are excluding a good accountant on the basis that he shares the same first name with someone else who is an accountant who you wouldn't want to use. .
    How are you sure he's such a good accountant, are you saying you followed him from the previous company to where he is now.
