Searchable threads in one long post:
Suzanne Martin makes false claims about Andrews, this time falsely citing police action. Police don't ever update the public about ongoing cases, which proves clearly it's nothing more than Suzanne Martin once more trying to smear Paul Andrews.
Suzanne Martin also avoids questions from lawyers Michelmores about progress of the Vega+ and also lies about the product being ready in a couple of weeks.
This leak also shows that some RCL updates are not tied to negative media coverage as many people suspected, but were made to convince their solicitors they were about to deliver the devices to backers. This goes some way to explain the eerie silence when a delivery date is missed - the update has served it's purpose as RCL have bought more time from a substantial creditor.
The Indiegogo update immediately following this email claimed that RCL were chasing a few stragglers for the roll of honour but the buttons were now perfect:

Following this update was 3 months of silence until February 5th, 2018!

We are expecting product at the end of next week – beginning of the next. We are issuing an update today.
Also I was advised by Luton Police that Andrews’ computers have been seized – not sure when but I think that is progress.

See the attached. Not sure if this relates to something specifically, or whether it is a general indication of Patrick Smith coming back of the scene for another round.
How are things? How close are you now in getting the Vega + out the door to backers?

The drama continues as season 2 begins with the dramatic installation of two new directors. Rumours persist that the drama may be renewed for season 3.
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.
