As we head towards the weekend and then a new week - which will include the cutoff date (Monday) for the remaining director of RCL to confirm when the next shareholder vote will be - the second one which I have called for, which is a vote to remove David Levy as a director and replace him with a new director who can assess the current and past state of the company, since we departed in April 2016.

Also next Wednesday in the courts in London, as most of you know already, will be the next hearing in the matter of the costs owed to us (from the case we won in Feb 2017 with regards to the ‘as ruled by the high court judge’ unlawful attempt by RCL and its directors, to remove my shares in the company and by default give them a potential 75% majority, this case in which costs were awarded in our favour but still not as yet settled by the four defendants to myself and Chris Smith), those costs awarded in our favour being jointly against RCL, David Levy, Suzanne Martin, JMF. We will let you know what we can in this matter. It is no secret now as per the past case that David Levy is now representing himself and RCL, as well as JMF, and Suzanne Martin representing herself in this matter. For clarity for those not up to speed this hearing is not to decide if we won, we did, it is for the court to decide the final amount owed to us, and the defendants to once more try to reduce the amount they owe us, it is not about winning, that was decided in Feb 2017.

As ever, within reason and the bounds of what we can, in our attempt to tell all backers the truth and inform you all as best we can, I can also confirm I sent the following email to David Levy yesterday. At time of writing he has not replied to this email. It was sent to him and the other shareholders/representatives of shareholders in RCL.


Mr Levy

I would like to remind you, that you must respond with an appropriate date and venue for this shareholder meeting within the 21 day period.

When responding you could also confirm to the shareholders your intentions with the various court issued CCJs we are aware are now issued against the company.

You could also confirm when the remaining 99.5% of the backer paid for Vega Plus consoles will be delivered to them, and confirm the funds are still in place within the company for this to happen.

You could also confirm on the state of the £433k claimed assets of the company in the last submitted accounts.

Please confirm by return that the company is NOT trading insolvent.

I look forward to your prompt response.

Just to keep everyone updated as best we can as promised -

This week on Wednesday in the London high courts (costings chambers) it will be the costings oral hearing (in the matter we have already won in terms of judgement of course) of myself and Chris vs RCL/DL/LM/JMF all jointly.

On the 25th of September in the small claims court in Luton its Chris vs RCL in a claim for owed money.

Levy responded 21 days (today) after the call for a shareholders by myself to call it the maximum 28 days after the 21 days the law allows to have that next meeting by shareholders to remove Levy as a director on the 8th October.

Indiegogo backer david posts a message stating that David Levy is now showing as the campaign owner. The remaining information is all incorrect, as the website is not the latest iteration, the facebook page is not available, and the twitter account has been disabled!

Chris Smith posts that the small claims case has been delayed:

Tomorrow was supposed to be Smith vs RCL - small claims.

...and at the very last minute, 24 hrs before the court date, the court cancelled due to an overwhelming number of cases and "lack of staff". So the case will not be heard tomorrow. Meh.

I've not had a new hearing date yet, and no idea when that will be. Probably ages!

Thought you'd all like to know, s'all....

More terrible press for the much maligned console and to make matters worse, Sky have now insisted that the company no longer use the Sinclair name and its related trademarks.

A tiny amount of the promised 400 have been spotted in the wild and there's not a single positive review.
