Gerald 6th Duke of Westminster, is not only drunken old fucking lecher, but he is unbelievably thick and stupid - ideal guy for the Army Top Brass
It was not Lord Patel' s intention to mislead readers but due to a failure of the research staff we omitted vital details of the career of the drunken, whoring, raddled Gerald, 6th Duke of Westminster.
The Duke is evidently an Old Harrovian where he joined the top ranks of academic scholarship by gaining 1 "O" Level (subject unknown) and also failed to obtain entrance to Sandhurst - which even Prince Harry managed. Evidently ideal qualifications for Assistant Chief of Defence Staff (Reserves and Cadets) he did however get pretty snappy promotion- see London Gazette.
After the exposure of his multicultural (and early morning****) whoring the Duke resigned as Chairman of Grosevnor estates and very, very, very, very quietly the MOD replaced him as Assistant Chief of Defence Staff (Reserves and Cadets) with Major General (Rtd.,) Simon Lalor, Honourable Artillery Company- who is also Commercial Director, Britam Defence Ltd, 3rd Floor Marvic House, Bishop's Road, London ,SW6 7AD
Curiously enough this company hove into sight in a very recent posting Saturday, January 05, 2008.... "Chairman of Britam Ltd., Sir Michael Wilkes KCB, CBE who served in the British Army for 35 years reaching the rank of a 4 star General - including Director of Special Forces. On leaving the Army in 1995, he was appointed Governor and Commander in Chief of the Island of Jersey where he served until 2000. (and would of course have a great deal to do with Bailiff of Jersey , SIR PHILIP MARTIN BAILHACHE , QC who was elected to the post in 1989.) Since that time he has become Deputy Chairman and Senior Independent Non-Executive Director of C. I. Traders Limited, a broadly based property and retail company which is the largest employer in the Channel Islands. He takes an interest in the finance industry and is Chairman of Chiltern Holdings (Jersey) Ltd. He maintains his interest in Middle Eastern affairs through his Chairmanship of Britam Defence Ltd. "..a special force in the oil and gas industry." To those who are interested in this sort of thing this website is the sort of website they will find..er..interesting.
Odd how Jersey and it's many magnificent offices keep cropping up in polite conversation - people who love dressing up in mediaeval costumes ......
**** Old adage of the landed classes - "Never roger the wife first thing in the morning - somethin' better's bound to crop up durin' the day"
**** Apologies again for the shortage of facts - corrective punishment will be applied to the staff, proportionate, rigorous and discreet.
Of course if anyone out there knows more about C.I. Traders the biggest employers in the CI , who must necessarily liase closely with providers of care for children to help establish them in a working life...... children who must be very grateful.
Fascinating little biography of Gerald in the Manchester Evening News 27/ 5/2005
"When you are born with a silver spoon in your mouth, it's good to take it out every so often," explains Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the sixth Duke of Westminster and the wealthiest individual in the M.E.N. Rich List (Now was he just talking about his spoon ?) . Apparently he"earned" £240 a day as head of TA and his godchildren Princes Harry and Edward were ushers at the wedding of his daughter , Lady Tamara, which their father was kept away from.
