Partner fired after ‘Scouse scum’ rant goes viral

first_imgA London partner at a US law firm who branded Liverpool FC supporters ‘Scouse scum’ in a filmed interview has had his partnership terminated by the firm.In a message posted on YouTube, Goldberg Segalla managing partner Rick Cohen said Chelsea fan Clive O’Connell’s comments were ‘entirely inconsistent’ with the firm’s ethos.O’Connell was interviewed by a sports website following a match last month which Chelsea lost 3-1. During the interview, which was posted online, O’Connell (pictured right) called Liverpool fans ‘Scouse scum’.O’Connell has since apologised, but the firm acted this morning by removing him and confirming its actions through a statement posted on YouTube.Cohen said: ‘His conduct doesn’t rise to the standards to which we hold ourselves and for these reasons we have terminated our partnership with Mr O’Connell, effective immediately.‘We are extremely proud of the respectful and giving culture that we worked hard to build and we’re committed to maintaining it for ourselves, for our clients and for our communities of which we’re part.’Cohen said he personally recruits every lawyer in every office of the firm and tells each new recruit they must be ‘better human beings’ than they are lawyers.He added: ‘Our core values require that anyone affiliated with this firm demonstrates respect for their clients, the courts, colleagues and our communities.‘Respect, tolerance, kindness, diversity, charity; they aren’t mere words or amorphous concepts to us.’Before his termination, Goldberg Segalla’s website had hailed O’Connell as ‘one of the world’s leading insurance and reinsurance legal professionals’.O’Connell had apologised for his comments after the game and said he had supported Chelsea since he was a child and felt ‘passionately about the team’.He told the London Evening Standard: ‘I was very disappointed in the aftermath of Saturday’s game.‘I let my emotions get the better of me. I clearly regret this and any offence that I may have caused by my hot-headed and regrettable reaction, which was inappropriate whether or not caught on camera.’last_img read more

Baltic privatisation in turmoil

first_imgJUST WHEN it appeared that privatisation of Estonia’s modest rail network was going smoothly (RG 1.01 p6), the whole process seems to be back in the melting pot. On January 17 a court in Tallinn ordered that the sale of the dominant freight operation to preferred bidder Rail Estonia must be halted while an action brought by rival bidder RER was considered. As a decision by this court can be appealed to a higher court, the matter may not resolved for several months. Spice was added when Guido Sammelselg, Chairman of the third bidder Baltic Rail Services, rejected last month an alleged offer of Rail Estonia’s entire shareholding for 200m kroons as ’pitiable and unethical’. The shares had previously been offered to RER, backed by SJ in Sweden, for 250m kroons.Meanwhile, inter-city passenger services will be withdrawn from March 3 because parliament has refused to pay Edelaraudtee, bought by GB Railways last year, more than 60m kroons in annual subsidy (RG 2.01 p84). A compromise reached last month will see replacement buses operating ’as a temporary measure’, whilst ways of reinstating the trains are examined.last_img read more

The Folio Society’s limited edition Bram Stoker’s Dracula has illustrations by Angela Barrett

first_imgCredit: The Folio SocietyDracula is one of the most influential books in English Literature, and it has spawned numerous big screen adaptations. Bram Stoker’s Gothic horror tale introduced vampirism to Victorian readers from 1897 and has thrilled generations of readers ever since. Tourists still flock to the Yorkshire town of Whitby to visit the ruins of the Abbey and the harbour where, in the form of a dog, Dracula first set foot in England…Dracula was Stoker’s fifth novel, but by far his best-known and remembered. It was to have an impact and an immortality its author could never have foreseen. Like the Count, Dracula is deathless and ever-changing, reinvigorating the genre of horror literature from the early pages detailing Jonathan Harker’s diary entries as he records his time in the sinister castle in Transylvania whilst his fiancé Mina waits at home. The text of the first edition, scrupulously reproduced here, remains powerful, haunting, and deliciously ambiguous. Moments such as Dracula climbing out of the window and scuttling down the vertical walls of the castle by his finger tips send thrills and chills through every reader.Illustration ©2019 Angela Barrett from The Folio Society limited edition of Dracula.Handpicked for her ethereal interpretations of the darker fairy tales as the perfect artist to illustrate Dracula, Angela Barrett’s remarkable work is intertwined throughout this lavish limited edition. From the delicate webbing of a bat’s wing to the arresting portrait of the Count that forms the frontispiece, every detail invites the reader to look deeper. She has produced 15 intensely atmospheric colour plates, a set of elaborate hand-drawn borders, nine black-and-white tailpieces, and a pair of striking designs on the venous red leather binding and black cloth-covered slipcase.Illustration ©2019 Angela Barrett from The Folio Society limited edition of Dracula.Each of the 750 hand-numbered copies has been signed by the artist.The Folio Society limited edition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, introduced by John Banville and illustrated by Angela Barrett is available exclusively from The Folio Society.last_img read more
