    We'll never know I guess. Just like I assume the majority of Dynamo / FB clients will probably never know who Darren really was.

    FYI Hentons have deleted the tweet which pictured Darren.

    As to the second, if they made a mistake and have thoroughly reviewed to make sure there's been no fraud, and taken steps to make sure it never happened again, I'd probably be fine with that, too. Again, second chance, this time for them.

    That's not what happened, though.
    I think most folks would take the pragmatic, rather charitable view too. But I think one of the quite telling things that seems to be emerging is that, just like a leopard can't change it's spots, Upton/Roberts can't change his demeanour. I rather think that given the choice of telling the truth and being humble or taking a chance and hoping to get away with it - I think every single time, Upton/Roberts will take the second choice. I really suspect he just can't help himself.

Left because of the level of partnership offer received from them and differences in vision, plus the Bartfields opportunity being too good to turn down in light of the above offer.
    Does this mean Dynamo knew of his history if he knew the tax partner for 25 years?

    With thanks to my mate "IHaveAnIphoneX-YouHaveASamsung-ImSorryToHearThat" for pointing this out to me. And he is still wondering what other Dynamo clients will do.....

    I reckon that's BS.

    Hentons (who own Dynamo) look like a decent outfit. Darren was helpful, friendly and had something about him here. I reckon they probably saw that in the interview and because of this they weren't as diligent checking his work history as they should have been. That being said it could be true as it seems strange they would launch Dynamo without already having a head of department in place.

    Given the work history on his LinkedIn Fox Bartfield absolutely know who he was. Adam Barton has some big questions to answer.

    That I didn't know. Nothing would surprise me when it comes to this.

    Well, considering the source you'd have to think that's a possibility. But....

    So they made him head of a department, not knowing where he'd been anytime in the last five years or confirming any of his work history? Without any evidence that he'd not been an involuntary guest of Her Majesty? 'Nice to meet you, we haven't confirmed your credentials or history, we hope you know your stuff and you seem nice, here's the key to our new division, go for it.'

    IMO DJU was speaking truth on that. MS' Tait Walker discovery fits it. At the very least, someone they knew convinced them he was good enough to do the job (they were right). Someone at Henton's knew.

    Questions he will only answer for the authorities, if forced to, and not to anyone else. That's dead certain.
