A real top ALLEGED performance. But, remember partner-crime fans, the swag grabbing season has only just begun – who knows who will score the greatest haul by the end of the year? Personally, I’m betting we’ll see a £5m+ grab by an English partner before 2011 is out. Reply Link Bored 27 May 2011 at 13:46 Oh do please give it a rest. This isn’t news. Reply Link Anonymous 27 May 2011 at 13:53 Bored @1:46 Erm, a partner being investigated for a £3m theft, how can you not think that is a story? You should get back to reading about Cheryl and the X Factor….

Reply Link Anonymous 27 May 2011 at 16:21 I know Andrew well and he is a good chap who went to a decent school. I can’t imagine he would have done this deliberately and if he did, he probably had perfectly justifiable reasons. No need for the police to get involved, shouldn’t they be focussing on real crime instead of paltry amounts of money like this etc. Reply Link Anonymous 27 May 2011 at 16:45 Theft is a crime regardless of his intention (deliberate or otherwise). Of course the Police should be informed: “nice chaps” are not above the law. Reply Link Anonymous 27 May 2011 at 16:50 I too knew Andrew from the Club and know that he attended a very sensible boys school indeed. This must all be some sort of mistake.

Greetings, A! Remember me from alma mater? Yes, he was a jolly nice chap and this really is a ridiculous invasion of his privacy. When one distributes any alleged loss among everyone who has to obtain PI, D&O or other insurance, it really is only one penny on their premium, so I really don’t know what all the fuss is about. Innit? Reply Link City Gent 27 May 2011 at 16:56 This is just typical victimisation of a chap who probably made a simple error. Who amongst us can say that after a rather good lunch one hasn’t accidentally keyed in the wrong account number? It seems to me that the Plod has got it in for what they absurdly see as `fat cats’. Why don’t they concentrate on the real villains, those oiks who drive cheap and nasty cars with unpleasantly loud radios but without tax discs? No, just concentrate on persecuting the decent, tax-paying middle classes, it’s much less trouble! I’m sure once a proper policeman gets involved it’ll all be sorted out over a nice cup of tea and a couple of HobNobs.

Reply Link Anonymous 28 May 2011 at 11:20 Some schools just produce good chaps therefore there must be a presumption in favor of the innocence of such fine fellows. An immediate investigation should be conducted into whether he was wearing the school tie at the point of arrest … if no then clearly a case of mistaken identity. Reply Link Anonymous 29 May 2011 at 07:25 Greedy English lawyers excusing others… Reply Link Anonymous 29 May 2011 at 10:31 Bless the poor old bean. I have known him since school. We rode together. This is just an illustration of today’s police force. No longer understand the class system and the immunity that it brings. Scotland Yard do want to be careful about a rebellion. We do clay pigeon shoot you know. Reply Link Anonymous 29 May 2011 at 18:52 A jolly nice chap too, apparently. Might I also suggest that the scale of the thefts / misappropriatoins be scaled back a little ….. I mean, £1M from one, £3M alleged for another…. If true and proven, off to the Scrubs with him. Reply Link Anonymous 30 May 2011 at 07:26 Andy, Can I please have that 5 quid back now? Reply Link Anonymous 31 May 2011 at 13:12 I actually do know this guy and used to work with him at Ince. He was a pretty colourful fellow, quite literally sometimes when he arrived for work with his TV make-up still on having been on GMTV that morning with his latest showbiz girlfriend and all that. People really should presume him innocent until proven guilty and even then the SDT & Met Police are not exactly paragons of justice are they, so good luck to him and don’t stint on the defence fees I say. Reply Link Anonymous 2 June 2011 at 22:54 I also knew Andrew, and I can vouch for him. He is a decent, honest, hardworking chap who has done nothing wrong. There must be some terrible terrible mistake. I hope it all gets resolved pretty soon. Reply Link Anonymous 3 June 2011 at 15:27 What a coincidence! As I read this article Ince’s ad. for energy lawyers flashes up. “Global Opportunities”, it says. They should know.
