I am not going to comment on anything specific in relation to this gentleman’s predicament for obvious reasons.
What I will say though is that neither a silver spoon nor an expensive education are a guarantor of being in possession of common sense.
As I know all too well, you can’t choose your enemies, they are thrust upon you and you have to deal with them as and when.
You can however choose your friends and you have to choose wisely, especially if you are in a position of Authority. I mean come on, what was the guys name again?
