One of the partners that TE likely referred to was, during the AC33 decisions, with a firm that represented EB when it got to the sharp end.
Could well be seed money from one source and second round funding from another. The law firm is the most obvious indication.
^^ If TE knows, he certainly hasn't told me.
^ Good point on 'different leagues' - would help greatly to explain why the original application was weak.
If LE even suspects that EB has anything to do with it, we might as well expect to see another drawn out case if it even gets remanded, and with another ass-kicking as the result.
There was an interview in a German paper (der Spiegel ?) a week or so back; he suggested that because of the money OR was unbeatable; and he is now into golf instead. Other recent articles and interviews with Kirsty B suggest she is trying to get her singing career back on track, she says flying economy class because Ernesto is not willing to help fund her campaign; suggesting to me that his marriage may be on the rocks, even if his AC and UBS and maybe other financial aspirations weren't already on the rocks too.
Hard to believe since they just launched a massive super-yacht, and KB is flying coach ? Not sure I believe that.
I would believe EB is into golf though, it's easier to cheat if no one is looking. I'd bet he shoots in the low 70's most every game
Just ask Tiger.
