Am I a Bank Robber?
Well hello. I am very new to blogging. I've played around on three earlier blog sites, making many mistakes and hopefully learning the nuts and bolts. Time will tell whether this brand new site is any better!!! I am a tourist group leader, fairly advanced years
but at this exact moment I am out of work, hence the time to start blogging. But, you will say, what about your title? Well, I am sure you would not be reading this if I had entitled it "Needatourmanager." I know, because I had a website and blogs with that name, hits ----- nil. But, everything I put on this and future blogs is 100% true. I may not give the whole truth, but it is nothing but the truth. And, to give the title some sense, some fourty years ago the most senior detective in Flintshire Police force said to me "We are convinced that if you did'nt do it, you know who did do it." That was fourty years ago. So as any readers can put it in present day perspective, I have multiplied all sums of money mentioned now and in the future by ten. This means that I am writing in terms of what the money would be worth today, after inflation. So, what was he talking about? The fact that well over a quarter of a million pounds had gone missing from Barclays Bank in Rhyl, North Wales, where I happened to work at that time. This money has never been seen to this day. It was, in my opinion a victimless crime. No individual lost any money, apart, possibly, shareholders of Barclays loosing about a half pence off their dividend. I might add, the Police did not see eye to eye with me on that point. I wonder if I have got you interested. In any event, more will be revealed!!! Mike Owen
