This is a story of unprecedented greed and incompetence. It shows that the insolvency practitioners are answerable to no one. The regulatory system excels in buck-passing and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is busy immitating the three unwise monkeys. The result is loss of jobs, wealth creation, anxiety and homelessness for innocent people. In the real world, the J.S. Bass story is being repeated many times.

Everything mentioned on this page is backed by extensive documentation. AABA can put serious researchers and journalists in touch with Barry Chapman, former director of the Bass Group of Companies.
