Gatecrasher ‘Dr Nastro’ admits defeat and announces he’ll be retiring from the ligging circuit; perhaps Denis Doble, Eva Harold, David Pun and Sandra Shevey ought to follow his lead

 

On Wednesday, we received a message from a known member of London’s ligging community of aging oddballs using the pseudonym ‘Dr Nastro’.

 

In an email to our main editorial email address and sent from a Yahoo account, this gatecrasher accused Matthew Steeples of effectively being responsible for his being “banned from venues” and suggested that one of the worst of his very own number, the grabbing granny with Donald Trump-like hair named Eva Harold, “had me thrown out of a place. She is bad news” also. He added a link to an article on a website named ‘Stop Wine Liggers’ and rather pathetically concluded: “I will not be going to events any more.”

 

By return, Matthew Steeples responded:

 

“I have nothing to do with the website you have linked to – I am busy enough with my own work – but have responded to the comments there. If they decide to publish, you will see my thoughts.”

 

“I do believe the behaviour of the ligging community is unacceptable. You and your friends do not add to events, they subtract and they are a nuisance to organisers. Some of your number are thieves and others are just racist bigots. Plainly, you have offended the person behind the site you mention but what I cannot understand is why you are surprised.”

 

“As for giving up going, it is probably the wisest decision you’ve made given the chaos you’ve caused previously. Enjoy your retirement.”

 

In reply, ‘Dr Nastro’ immediately answered: “I just did it for fun the rest are not [sic].”

  1. For once you lot Steeple Times are righty o’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who’d want this collection of jerks at their event?????????????? Ban the lot of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Melania Rochester one looks like a dragooned rat and Gordon Owen definitely needs a new tie!!!!!!!!!!!! Lock ’em up!!!!!!!!!! Lock ’em up!!!!!!!!!!!! Cowabunga kicks required to rid the world of all of them!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. We’ve had dealings with the Rochester harridan before, a most unsavory character. She came to our product launch claiming to work with ultra high net worth clients, but the people she was with were decidedly lowbrow. After several glasses of champagne, she picked a fight with another guest. She and her companions were promptly shown the exit thereafter. More of a shew than a rat, but a horrible woman nonetheless.

  2. They actually think Matthew Steeples writes those blogs? Anyone can see the Liggers of London has an entirely different written syntax and is nothing like The Steeple Times. Anyone can also see that Sandra Shevey has something wrong with her – her Twitter account is utterly the most amusing thing I’ve ever read yet she takes her conspiracies seriously. Nuts!

  3. Fantastic, though I’ll believe it when I no longer see him and his kind at private events. Even David Pun sightings have been thin of late, so perhaps the liggers are dying a slow death, one by one, being dragged away from the buffet, kicking and screaming.
