Matthew Steeples thanks Tamara Ecclestone for giving him so much attention (at a time when her dear little daddy is trying to bury his bad news of having to pay £1 billion in back taxes he owed to the British public)
In her own words: “I’m like an old lady with a cup of tea” Tamara Ecclestone Rutland – a larger than life oddity with a tattoo on her ankle that includes the caption “sometimes good things fall apart” – has morphed into the modern day Leona Helmsley.
With her diminutive dwarf of a father, Bernie (AKA ‘The Grinch’ and ‘The Coffin Dodger’), finally following the ‘Queen of Mean’ hotelier turned tax evader’s mantra of “only the little people pay taxes” (and stumping up the £1 billion in back taxes he’d disgracefully owed to the British public for the last twenty years), we recently reported on how Mr. Ecclestone had spent the days since “burying bad news Jo Moore style” in the time since.
A daily drip of trivialities about the former Formula One Group chief’s precocious daughters has followed in the pages of the Mail and The Sun – the Ecclestones’ only real allies in the media – and with them has come an outpouring of gibberish and nonsense. There have been stories how this “anything but normal” family has suffered “heartbreaking abuse” (from amongst other The Steeple Times’ Matthew Steeples) and totally irrelevant snippets about how the 35-year old titty feeding advocate had dressed up as a witch and hung out in a cryotherapy chamber.
Aside from the fact that serious titles such as the Financial Times, the Daily Telegraph and The Guardian decided to ignore a financial story with the feel of John Maynard Keynes’ “owe your banker £1,000 and you are at his mercy; owe him £1 million and the position is reversed,” that the Ecclestones have been given a free ride to use the ‘distraction technique’ to have a go at others including James Stunt is indicative only of their desperation to hide their nefarious ways.
Once branded as someone “who lives in a different world” by the equally unctuous bully Coleen Nolan – to which this publicity obsessive arrogantly answered: “What people say about me, it goes in one ear and out the other” – Tamara Ecclestone’s decision to share photographs of me with her 433,000 followers on Instagram was, I must say, quite charming. Today, I simply respond by saying: “Thank you, Tamara.”
On ITV1’s tawdry chat show Loose Women in 2016, the wife of he who likes to go around “teaching manners” Jay Rutland oddly remarked: “I can see things from different sides.” Perhaps, soon, she and her family might start realising the shoe’s about to be on the other foot as 2020 will most likely be going down as the Ecclestone clan’s annus horribilis.
