Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

If they really want to see K7 in their museum, they need to start making an effort and communicate. This stalemate will simply continue indefinitely if they don't. If the Ruskin did try to take this to court, their non-communication would in, my estimation, work against them. I always like this one...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

It doesn't take much to organise a Zoom meeting. I've taken part in a few recently at short notice. You simply punt the participants a message telling them the time, and the login code. Everyone logs on, you have the discussion, make a decision which suits everyone, then contact the other party with...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

It only seems to be the preview on the main page. If you click on the preview for the full sized view, it loads the right way up. Rather strange... :shock:

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

I'd love to log on one day to read on the BBP's Twitter feed that a group of Ruskin Trustees are heading up to North Shields to have a look at K7 and talk to the team. If that would happen, it would make a lot of old fart‘s eyes wet... I don't know about people tearing up and getting a lump in thei...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

but will he ride off into the sunset or regenerate into another identity like an idiotic Doctor Who? If he rides off into the sunset someone might be able to verify this one way or the other. Just been sent this. Does it really say 'Starship Bluebird' at the bottom of that plate or has some joker b...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

She also seems quite happy allowing her current partner to run amok on the internet denigrating the BBP at every opportunity, and also speaking as though he's a trustee of the Ruskin Museum. Then again, perhaps she doesn't know what he's up to. It's not a good look at all for Gina; The Campbell Fam...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

My understanding of the situation is that has been tried already. That mediator was supposed to be Gina Campbell. Guess that didn't work too well. Which isn't a big surprise as she is way too much involved in the story, so far from beeing neutral. I don't think it's so much that, it's a case of Gin...

Thanks for the clarification, Bill. I retract my earlier statement.

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

That is the most important thing. To do so would require as little outside interference/influence as possible. Agreed. I just had the impression as if the process had come to a standstill. I don't know if it has - hopefully not though. I think Bill has said it best about drawing a line in the sand....

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Will understanding why Ms. Campbell did a 180 really matter? I think it does matter. Maybe not from a legal point of view, but - first - understanding this might give everyone else a clue what's the real problem of the Ruskin side is and - second - I doubt any operation of K7 makes sense without th...
