You can't teach an old dog new tricks. Once a liar always a liar. It's only a matter of time before he meets someone new and he'll be back behind bars again .

It's not the dating that's dangerous, but the men that we date. Unfortunately Mr Laidlers sole intention was not to form a lasting loving relationship with anyone, but to forge a relationship with a woman who would provide him with the means to carry on his pathetic fantasy life. One day he will wake up and maybe realise that if he had concentrated more on the relationship rather than the spending and frivolous lifestyle he would have found the happiness that he was looking for right under his nose.

We know what happened to lee and what im sure will happen again to him in the future. He thinks he's very clever, wrong! There are people very close to him that he's hoping he can trust enough not to tell what he still doing. Just imagine what will happen to poor lee if he betrays their trust and one of them decides to report him. It's only a matter of time!

''I was in education with Lee, so have known him since 14 years old if not earlier and I got to know him well, what he is about, what he stands for, he is a lovable character and we got on well. We went our seperate ways but we have always been in touch, even though we have rarely seen each other,he has been a mate to me,he has a lot to offer, even if money has been the downfall. This is the first I have found all the gruesome details out, not from Lee, but, I do still class him as a friend, even though I have read all the logs of severe distress, emotional upheaval, carnage and destruction which has effected so many. The details are shocking from various persons, im shocked, dismayed, confused. But he is still my mate, he has done the time, wish the money and more could be returned to those effected. If the same thing happens again, in any form what so ever, then the friendship goes. If anyone knows any reason for any possible re offending, then some friendly fire is required across Lees bows, and I say that as a friend. I will copy this and send it to Lee and maybe I can help him, as he has helped me. He does have a heart of gold I guarantee that, he wants to help and wants to be respected, i cant explain the rest and im not going to. I know things are covered up, i know I am not being told the whole truth. He is still my mate. If Lee does not take my words seriously, as a mate, a long standing mate, then I cannot help, but he does deserve to put things right, but im not going to do it for him. It has to come from Lee''.

to 'his friend' then if he has a heart of gold you can ask him to repay the money !! so many of us have been left in debt never mind the money he actually stole,......... and the emotional harm he has done to the kids he pulled into his games is unforgiveable,

ive been reading this since the start,it seems that really there is nothing more to say,mr laidler has done or is doing a prison term,and im assuming there was no proceeds of crime at the court on the day of judgement?

so really you have had your justice,so you really have no right to still be making comments like the one above do you?

you had well over 2 and a half years to bring forward cases and your opinions,nearly 3 years down the line you really have no right to,and you speak of emotional harm concerning children,you could explain yourself a bit clearer instead of just stating that he' kids he pulled into his games' at least if you are stating something then do it with a full explanation instead of a random comment,do these 'kids' sit in the corner of a room crying? are them in need of therapy? the likely answer is no,they will have long forgotten about this whole affair,unless you choose to remind them of it as often as you can..... as children we often find ourselves in situations during our childhood that dont scar us but leave us with unpleasent thoughts,but as we grow older we learn to 'file' it away so it doesnt bother us.....it seems to me that you are now asking fr the money to be repaid,quite frankly you had your choice and you chose the justice system to deal with it,and they did and they sentanced mr laidler to two and a half years custody,so in my eyes thats it,you chose to take that,now you cant come back and start asking for more,now im on the fence,im neither in support for mr laidler or against him,im merely offering an opinion which on a public forum i am entitled to do

its really of no point now whats done is done if mr laidler has served his sentance and is continuing with his life in an orderly fashion,then let him do so,over time all our wounds heal,children have so many things to contend with.....get on with your lives and leave this episode behind........bitterness is a horrible master.......

to anon...i only know the case went to court, I do not know details of the primary or secondary victims and without knowing the details from both camps, what can I say, but i do have genuine complete empathy towards those involved. If there was anything to decide in terms of financial repayments, penalties, then surely the courts would have imposed this??!! Lee has and is doing his time according to the judgement of the law.

i know of lee via a pal of mine and i have heard that he owes a couple of his mates money,suprise,suprise!....one of whom which you would not want to owe to !!!! apparently he was "looking after lee" before he was sentenced.

i wouldnt like to be in lees shoes if he gets agitated because he has a nasty proven history.

oh dear,like the song says,there may be trouble ahead.
