After disgust was registered at the depths to which the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog would sink, following their attempt to use the experience of an epilepsy sufferer to kick the Labour Party, news arrived on Zelo Street that The Great Guido’s trainee sandwich monitor - oops, sorry, “chief reporter” - Ross Kempsell may be experiencing one of those Little Local Difficulties.
Useless, and not just at smearing
Kempsell, it seems, owns a limited company called Hekatos Intelligence Limited (company number 10657326), which was incorporated in March 2017. This does not pre-date his taking the Fawkes dollar, which happened after the 2016 Labour Party conference, when he eavesdropped on Paul Mason talking about Jeremy Corbyn with a Spanish MP in a Liverpool restaurant. The story later appeared in the Murdoch Sun.
The previous employer of Kempsell’s dubious skill set had been Fame Flynet, the agency that just happened to turn up to “exclusively” snap former Labour MP Simon Danczuk and his second ex-wife Karen, then flog the result to whichever paper was gullible enough to open their corporate wallet before they saw them coming. Danczuk was another in the shamefully long list of Fawkes informants from The Red Team.
So as Kempsell was already working chez Fawkes when this company was set up, what is it for? Is Kempsell using it to make himself more “tax efficient”? Or just a little more “intelligent”? Either way, unless he gets his act together pronto, Hekatos Intelligence Limited may not be in business much longer.
That is because the company’s first confirmation statement was due in March this year, but has not yet materialised. As a result, Companies House has written to the company’s directors (Kempsell being the sole director) telling “The registrar of companies gives notice that, unless cause is shown to the contrary, at the expiration of two months from the above date the name of HEKATOS INTELLIGENCE LTD will be struck off the register and the company will be dissolved”. And there is more.
“Upon dissolution all property and rights vested in, or held in trust for, the company are deemed to be bona vacantia, and accordingly will belong to the crown”. Sounds a bit Julian and Sandy (ask an older relative). But having a company struck off is a serious business, and may impinge on Kempsell’s ability to secure a company ownership, or even a directorship, in the future. It won’t reflect well on the Fawkes blog either.
After all, if the Fawkes rabble can’t even manage the basics of starting up and maintaining a limited company, who should anyone trust their alleged “Journalism”? Why should anyone listen to their claims of improper behaviour made against New Left Media, if the creep who twisted the story of an epilepsy sufferer in order to have a cheap snark at the Rotten Lefties (tm) gets himself struck off by Companies House?
But it will make a matching pair of Gazette entries. Paul Staines is already there, preserved for posterity, after he declared himself bankrupt some years back.
Another good reason not to trust The Great Guido. Another fine mess, once again.
