Yet another recording of Nadine being a complete and utter idiot. "Let him stay!" say the people of Mid Bedfordshire. "What's she hiding?" and so on. Very astute banter from audience members. You'll need to turn your monitor or your head or your mobile device on its side.
UPDATE: 10:16 Oh, alright then:
There will be other videos emerging no doubt and people will add links into the comments here. The GlaxoBabies story is very interesting. This was the contract, worth about a third of a million pounds for a year I understand that levered in a couple of other contracts and created the value in the Nadine and Paul company that allowed them to be sold to BUPA.
These were I understand three ONE YEAR contracts. Someone will work out or tell me perhaps how long they had to run when the sale to BUPA was completed. The price of that was rumoured to be £3 million. I have my doubts, (<- important comma) if BUPA knew contracts were so short. But again perhaps someone can work out the sale value, subtract any related borrowings and calculate or estimate what Nadine and Paul actually made.
Anyways, back to the story. Several sources tell me that prior to securing the Glaxo Babies contract our heroes were on their fat arses financially. Really desperate to win some business. Bigging themselves up no end. I'd be willing to wager my last shirt that rather like the CV provided to the Tories in 1999 for the 2001 campaign - risibly inaccurate (LOLs passim) - their pitch and company CV were flexed.
Among the flexes I'm told was a London Headquarters, near Victoria, shiny, impressive, reassuringly expensive. At around the time the Glaxo childcare contract was going through - possibly after heads of terms agreed, or even contract or heads of agreement memo inked - Glaxo suits asked to visit London office.
Oh dear! So what happened? According to sources Nadine and Paul parachuted a small staff and computer team in from their real office to a relatively shiny office nr Victoria, apparently instructed them to look busy - in a room with someone else's workers and PCs and phones and all that jazz - and greeted about four Glaxo suits on site. With the (real) Nads team told to make like busy busy busy.
Once the suits were gone the hustling bustling Nadine and Paul team dismantled their stuff and never again darkened the doors of said office. If this is true - and Nadine or Paul may like to make a statement - then it seems a pretty serious manipulation of the actualité.
Although Nadine and Paul seem to have blued away whatever they did receive with an extravagant lifestyle, a failed 2001 bid for parliament, school fees, frankly ridiculous GUCCI tat shop Gorgeous, and horribly bad large-scale property development disasters, the Glaxo contract and the BUPA sale were it seems the basis of their short-lived fortune, her parliamentary career, and aspects of the old CV e.g. "BUPA Director" (not quite correct) and "successful businesswoman" (ditto) and hence PPC and MP.
So Room 101 Question for Nadine and Paul:
Is it true that your childcare business - the only one of your businesses EVER to file accounts or returns - in the process of contracting to work for Glaxo and later to be sold to BUPA - piggy backed a London Office of third party or parties to impress Glaxo suits? And then The Real Hustle style dismantled the same and sodded off back to humble, real office?
