Re the tycoon case, was the accuser married and has she given any reason for not returning the money?

NDA moaners like the cash they get for shutting up about their usually unprovable and often utterly false allegations. But keeping them in line afterwards needs firm action.

Yeah, that’s totally why they get given NDA cash – because they make ‘false’ and ‘unproveable’ allegations.

I’m not going to bother with work today. I’m going to seek free cash and an NDA from Prince Charles for organising my recent alien abduction.

Suck it losers!

That would have been more believable than a lot of allegations which are made in the hope of receiving a payout!
