If indeed Howe obtained a barrister's opinion, and the above was that
opinion, how can he possibly construe that ' the Barrister fully
supported the legal rights of HM King David I.' All Counsel said was
that it was lawful for him to a) *claim* he was King of Mann and b) to
*pursue* his claim by lawful means.
How stupid does Howe think people are?
Next time I have a lawsuit, remind me to go to a barrister, the
"highest legal authority", instead of just mucking about with petty
things like the Court of Appeal, House of Lords etc.
Given the drivel on his series of websites about the paramountcy of
Manx law to his "case", it is typically hypocritical of David "Drew"

HM has been so busy that the press release hasn't yet hit the streets,

purchaser signifies that it may well be time indeed for a new web
page ... Andrew!
My apologies to Michael Andrews-Reading -- Michael, not Andrew!
Foolish of me!
Oh, I've been called far worse than that!

Stupidity is largely dependent on willpower. Anybody who really wants
to believe something usually succeeds, no matter ho absurd the belief
As of 16 July 2007, the announcement has not appeared. Furthermore,
the announcement of the pending announcement has disappeared. Perhaps
the would-be lord was embarrassed that his name would be made public
and that it would be known that he spent at least GBP 50,000 for a
dubious honour. See: http://www.nobility.co.uk/nobility.htm for the

Oh!? I hope it wasn't as a result of something we said?
We can be a rude, crude bunch! lol
