Re: Hostage Faye Turney hasn't given share of cash to crewma
FAYE! If you kiss and tell darling, then you kiss and tell!! No doubt there will be a 'Sun' newspaper heading in the distant future saying 'I never meant to hurt anybody' & 'ITV edited what I said' & 'I am having Simon Cowell's love child...'. Good luck to you. Take said money and immigrate!! Please just not to Oz or Nz OK?
Oh FFS! Whilst I was a vociferous opponent of you lot picking on Faye because of what she looked like and what size she was, do you really think she was going to give a decent proportion of the monies away? Good grief no, perhaps a small amount to the ship's fund and the rest to the Faye Fund.
It's her money and nobody else's business what she does with it - she'll probably never see a cheque that big again in the whole of her life.
People vastly senior to her who should have shown better judgment handed her this jackpot and they are the ones to be criticised. I would criticise an officer who had not the good sense to say (after negotiating the highest sum imaginable) 'now write the cheque to RBL/KGV etc' but not a junior rating.
What a miserable bitching shower you lot are!
Give the girl a chance. None of us would have liked to be in her situation.
None of us would really know how we would have reacted.
Having survived that situation and being presented with the opportunity to make a few quid beyond your pay scale by some fuckwit with a yard of gold braid, and a few "weekend warriors" in Whitehall, who amongst you would not have been tempted.
Re-read Hig's post, and Seaweed's.
I am still angry that they were allowed to sell their stories. The whole episode has to be the single most embarrassing episode that I have witnessed during my years of service ... but I don't blame the crew. They received advice during de-briefing and some of them acted upon it. It is as if selling their stories suited the Govt at that time because it deflected some of the crap that was going their way â€¦ for a time at least.
Now we find that she hasn't given her "shipmates" any dosh. Big deal; after all the crap that has been thrown at her she deserves a break and if matlots are true to form, her "shipmates" have probably given her tons of grief, I mean banter. It would seem that she is showing some strength of character by trying to get on with her career and not sticking her notice in and suing the MOD for constructive dismissal.
