three scallywag monkeys

Left to Right: Mr Alan Bartram | Mr Bob Leiper | Mr Rex Gibbons

A couple of months ago I was driving through the back roads of Broadbridge Heath. I saw Mr Bob Leiper walking along very briskly. I knew he did not live in Broadbridge Heath, and I was concerned that he might have a problem. Possibly a car breakdown? Maybe he would benefit from a lift somewhere?
I wasn't in a rush, so I stopped, to check that he was alright.

Mr Leiper practically jumped out of his skin, and immediately looked very sheepish and defensive. His body language suggested that I might infect him with Ebola.

He declined my kind offer of a lift, and then became impudent and had the temerity and audacity to berate me for what he described as my 'terrible' treatment of Mr Gibbons? 'Really'?


The last time I was in the Anchor Tap, Mr Bartram was there.
He saw me, looked daggers at me and he looked like a man who was chewing on a wasp? 'Really'?

Do Messrs Bartram and Leiper think that their childish behaviour will be allowed to pass without comment?

Do Messrs Bartram and Leiper think that their somewhat childish behaviour will, on balance:

A. Benefit Mr Gibbons in any way at all?
B. Be neutral for Mr Gibbons?
C. Make things significantly worse for Mr Gibbons?

Mr Gibbons deceived, tricked and duped me into setting up this major (£38K) project by his oft repeated assurances that he would be a willing, capable, comptent, reliable and trustworthy project partner. Mr Gibbons was the exact opposite.

To remain with this project all Mr Gibbons had to do was:

  • Perform satisfactorily, (and do his fair share of the work).
    (An eleven year old child could cope with what I gave to Mr Gibbons to do).
  • Behave
  • Be sensible
  • Do exactly as he was told to do by a very experienced web developer

Mr Gibbons failed on all fronts, and he didn't even turn up to work. I have never tried to work with anyone who has made me quite as angry, because he is completely witless, clueless, useless, stupid and incompetent.

If sensible, Mr Gibbons had a great opportunity to work with a real web developer, would have had great fun, learned a great deal, and made some welcome money.

Unfortunately, Mr Gibbons repeatedly managed to screw up. He managed to 'Gibbons' everything. Mr Gibbons' contribution to this project is as great as his contribution to putting Man on the Moon!

Can I point out to scallywag monkeys that:

  • Mr Gibbons asked me if I could work out a way to do this project
    I could, I did, and I have.
  • Mr Gibbons asked me for help. I provided that help in spades. I am a very helpful guy. I have helped all three scallywag monkeys in the past.
  • I have acted in good faith
  • I have built and developed this project
  • I have paid for everything
  • I have done my half of this project, and I have done 45% of what Mr Gibbons promised he would do, but never did.
  • I have done WAY MORE than I agreed to do. I have had to.
  • Mr Gibbons has done NOTHING of what he promised he would do.

Patiently, for the seven months November, 2015 to June, 2015, I 'poked up' with Mr Gibbons and his foolish nonsense. That is until I could not stand any more of his incompetence, excuses, delays, broken promises, procratination, prevarication, obfuscation, deceit, dishonesty and lies.

I told Mr Gibbons that his performance over the seven month period (Dec, 14 - June, 15), had been woeful, pitiful, pathetic, incapable incompetent and inept. Help like his this project and I needed like a hole in the head. I could do much, MUCH better on my own, and I would be taking MY WORK with me.

I needed a real project partner (not a pretend project partner). Someone who would do their fair share of the work, and DO the work that they were given efficiently and effectively.

Mr Gibbons responded predictably, that is in foolishly and in anger, by hatching a plan to steal the project, which he put into effect on 7th July, 2015. This included locking me out of the website. (Mr Gibbons is as bad at trying to steal a website as he is at building one. I was expecting this at some point from Mr Gibbons, so when it happened, I was fully prepared).

At 08.47 on the 7th of July 2015 Heart Internet contacted me via their support ticket system.

"Hi Robin,

We have been contacted by a Rex Gibbons with regards to this domain and associated hosting package. They have requested to gain control over it, so that it may be hosted within another Heart account. Are there any reasons why this transfer should not be actioned? Please respond to this ticket with any pertinent information".

This NOT the behaviour of a willing, capable, comptetent and reliable and TRUSTWORTHY project partner. These are the criminal acts of a highly motivated, angry, vengeful man who covets this project so much, that he was desperate to get his hands on it. He SO wanted to make 'this' (£38K) project (exclusively) 'his' project. He also wanted to get even with me, and punish me, by depriving me of this project and to show me just how clever he really is. Then, with everything under his control he could continue with the pretence that my work is 'really' his work.

That was his plan. With me locked out of the website, Mr Gibbons thought he was home and dry.  Mr Gibbons was quite wrong. It was Mr Gibbons who found himself without website access. Mr Gibbons was sacked (again).  Fool!

Since 7th July, 2015,  Mr Gibbons creeps from pub to pub to try and pretend to anyone daft enough to pay him the slightest attention that he has been unfairly, unreasonably and cruelly dealt with by me, and that my work is 'really' his work, and that it is 'really' me that has stolen this project from Mr Gibbons. (He goes about his trolling activities whilst adopting the demeanour of a beaten and abused labrador dog).

Mr Gibbons 'really' wants the people of Horsham to believe that:

  • A retired police officer who has devoted 30 years of exemplary service to the Sussex Police to keep people like him safe. Fool!
  • A respected web developer who has recently built a Clinical Trials Recruitment Portal for the Biomedical Research Centre at King's College. Fool!
  • Has recently made Horsham District 'Dementia Friendly'. Fool!

Has suddenly turned thief? Of course, this is nothing, but yet more of Mr Gibbons' lies, deceit and complete dishonesty. Mr Gibbons is a scallywag monkey, and his one and only mission is to make a monkey out of you. Fool!

  • Mr Gibbons tricked and deceived into building this £38K pubs website project. Fool!
  • Mr Gibbons asked me for help, and I provided my help in spades. (This project is now 95% complete. Sadly, my help went sailing way over his foolish head). Fool!
  • I have built this project.
  • I have paid for this project
  • I have spent 2,000 hours working on this project.
  • Mr Gibbons failed to show up for work. Fool!

I would NEVER have attempted such a challenging and sizeable project on my own without having a reliable and trustworthy project partner. That was what Mr Gibbons promised, but he did not deliver. Fool!

'Scallywag Monkey' does seem an overly polite description of a man who 'really' is quite the most ghastly, loathsome, dishonest, despicable, detestable, preposterous, deluded fantasist, website project wannabe, passenger, lead weight, freeloader, parasite, charlatan, fraud, inveterate liar and would be thief. By the way, I forgot to add 'arsewipe',  'oxygen thief' and Fool!

Mr Gibbons and his very silly scallywag monkey friends should understand that Mr Gibbons enjoys his ability, (and his liberty), to walk into pubs and draw the breath he needs to peddle his odious, monsterous, contemptable and preposterous lies entirely to me. Fool!

We are talking of major fraud, deception and attempted theft (£38K). Quite a piece of work is Mr Gibbons, my 'really' willing, capable, competent, reliable and TRUSTWORTHY project partner.  I can call 'time' on the assinine Mr Gibbons at any time. Fool!

Scallywag Monkeys cannot begin to imagine what I would like to do to Mr Gibbons. Fool!
