The Phoenix Four they need to find Mr.Wick
The former directors of MG Rover – John Towers, Peter Beale, Nick Stephenson and John Edwards, known as the Phoenix Four have reacted with fury.
They need a John Wick, the former SAS officer and the whistleblower in the MP's expenses scandal to try and find a mole to get this report out in the public arena as soon as possible.
With a criminal investigation by the SFO now a possibility, the release of the report into the failings at MG Rover, including possible mistakes by the Government, will be delayed.
In a statement made on Monday, Lord Meddlesome announced that the findings cannot yet be made public for legal reasons. In other words a cover up for good old Liebore.
The dossier has taken four years to compile and to release information about what is written in this report as expected to be published this month. This report which has cost the tax payer 16 million pounds and has taken 4 years to compile will now add yet another year or two of more cost to the tax payer and more aggravation for the Phoenix Four.
The inquiry by BDO Stoy Hayward partner Gervase MacGregor has run for more than four years and has been delayed once already. Last year the Phoenix Four protested that the inquiry had not focused enough on the role played by Government ministers in the collapse of MG Rover. The complaint led to another round of interviews and delayed the report for almost a year.
This report, which is expected to show how Labour wasted £6m propping up the car company for a few extra days in the run-up to the 2005 general election, could (will) be delayed until after the next general election.
