Leeds United Message Board
Bates may not be as clever as he thinks. This article, circa 2007, from chartered accountants Mercer & Hole (http://www.mercerhole.co.uk/blog/article/phoenix-companies-leeds-united-did-ken-bates-break-the-law) identifies a specific crime that Bates may be guilty of.
It is unlikely that the teams of accountants and lawyer that conducted ‘due diligence’ on Leeds United would not have spotted this potential crime also – along with all the other anomalies about Bates and mates’ ‘ownership’ of the club that that have been commented on in the media.
It is a fair guess that Bates is stalling on selling LUFC because he doesn’t want to go to jail.
Time will tell mate, the one thing that always stands in my mind is Bates saved us twice his OWN WORDS, how was that possible when supposedly he just recently bought the club? Where was his due diligence recently as well? SO KEN HOW DID YOU SAVE US TWICE? PLEASE EXPLAIN!

Bates is like an old time dictator, believing that if he controls the media he can control the hearts and minds of the people. However, like dictators in these day of uncontrollable social media his messages are seen for what they are: propaganda and lies.
