Reply Link Anonymous 29 September 2008 at 12:02 Krays how were they scum?? Reply Link Frankie 29 September 2008 at 12:05 Krays The Kray twins might have been murderers and extortionists responsible for a litany of horrifying acts of violence, but they were also quite nice to their mum and were friends with Barbara Windsor, so it’s swing and roundabouts, really. Reply Link Criminal mastermind 29 September 2008 at 12:07 Answer I think it was because they killed people, and beat people up and took people’s stuff. Things like that. Reply Link Frank the hat 29 September 2008 at 12:10 Gawd bless em They luvved their muvva. Reply Link Phil the Foot 29 September 2008 at 13:03 no one’s questioned me since 1960 You could leave your doors unlo… etc etc etc Reply Link Ray Twinns 29 September 2008 at 13:21 Greatest heroes If I were in Addleshaws management, I’d keep an eye on that employee who described the Kray twins as his ‘greatest heroes’. Definitely wouldn’t let him administer the petty cash. Probably worth double-checking his expenses, too. Reply Link B. Windsor 29 September 2008 at 13:37 They was heroes The Kray twins was ‘eroes. They was better than Mother Theresa. They should be knighted, and canonized, and a massive wreath with the words ‘Ronnie’ and ‘Reggie’ written in flowers should be paraded around London on a double decker bus pulled by harnessed members of the editorial teams of Nuts, Loaded and FHM magazines. Gawd bless em. Reply Link Anonymous 29 September 2008 at 13:40 Krays I could never tell which one was Grant and which one was Phil. Reply Link Anonymous 29 September 2008 at 13:51 Jokes Most of these comments did make me laugh, but in seriousness, the fact that the Krays were nasty criminals and shouldn’t be celebrated should have been pointed out earlier. Good on whoever at the firm complained. Reply Link J. "The Hat" McVitie 29 September 2008 at 13:53 Smashing blokes They was smashing blokes, the Krays, working class heroes. Even when they stabbed me in the eye. Reply Link 'er inside. 29 September 2008 at 17:19 Mick Jagger??? Didn’t he get done for drugs at some point? Not exactly an upstanding member of the community!!! Reply Link McVicar 29 September 2008 at 17:23 You’ve got bigger problems I think Addleshaw have got bigger things to worry about than a poxy picture of the Krays on there wall… Like the fact that they seem to be offing staff every other day of the week.. I’m just gutted I didnt get the nod for a homage on the Addleshaw wall… Reply Link The Ghost of Ronnie Kray 29 September 2008 at 17:30 Let sleeping dogs lye… I done the crime and I did the time (As my rusty sheriffs badge will confirm). This Addleshaw mob went downhill when they let all there good credit controllers leave the firm.. Reply Link Rex 30 September 2008 at 18:56 Mission accomplished Art isn’t about right or wrong, its about provoking a reaction (something the legal profession understands poorly due to its adherence to rule books) – looks like mission acomplished then! My only complaint is that it’s the poor clients who are paying for AG’s indulgences. Reply Link Steve 1 October 2008 at 11:53 Could have been much worse….. Just imagine if they would have opted for pictures of the Board of Lehmans, Northern Rock or even the B&B……. Reply Link Anonymous 26 November 2008 at 15:15 protectors I’ve known loads of people who were friends with the Krayz and no one has ever had something bed to say about them. After they were arested the police campaigned to let them out again coz crime levels had risen!!! Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
