Recent commentary on an Oscilnut parodic lyrical misadventure on the subject of Dinglegate ran thus:
Anonymous Very good lyrics, although I believe that you haven't quite captured the full evilness of the guy. I am acquainted with the whole story as I am close friend of the lady who had the courage to "out" Mr. Dingle. He has ruined her life for 4 years, and since the article, many other have come out of the woodwork. He is about to be declared bankrupt, and seemed to be living 10 lives, not a "double life". Some of his lies have been despicable and low (his step-mother dying, his involvement in the Tavistock Square bombing and others). The guy is a sociopath, and it's a miracle that he has held such a responsible position. Hopefully, thanks to this article, people who have been affected by him can start to move on, but don't underestimate the effect his lying has had on people around him.
Oh yes, I forgot to say, the article is completely true, but there is more. Let's hope it all comes out.
Oscilnut His involvement with the July 7 bombings???
Did he claim to single-handedly evacuate everyone off the wrecked bus or similar?
I think we ought to be told.
Also, not meaning to be unfriendly, but could you drop a name (not necessarily a real one) with you next post?
Anonymous Apparently he told another woman that he was involved in the bus bombing, probably as an excuse for being absent for a few days. He claimed that a colleague of his died and he was treated in hospital but was released the same day.
This is not the behaviour of a normal human being, but of a complete freak.
Would be good to know if you guys have any gossip on him? Did his crazy behaviour spill over into his job?
By the way, if anyone had a grass tins that were confiscated, we could probably return them!
Oh, and the thing with the dress photo....he asked if he could wear it, and also quite liked it if female acquaintances could wear school uniform. If it wasn't so sinister, it could almost be amusing.
I can drop a name...I am The Gate.
Well, The Gate, your input is greatly appreciated by all here at The Rhexis. We encourage you to add as much as you feel able to share on the subject of Dinglegate. In answer to your question, whilst the man was an intolerable, smarmy, moralising, two-faced, shallow, mildly bigoted wanker, and rumours and near-truths abounded, he never seemed insane as such. It seems you may well be right to use the word "sociopath" to describe him. More, please.
The following was found as a late addition to Commentary on Talyn's original Dinglegate article:
Anonymous The story in the Mail is absolutely true. I know the girl in the story and indeed met 'James' many times. I also understand that Royal Grammar School grass is top quality.
Veins So it would seem!
Talyn, Withiel, Oscilnut, Thaddeus, and myself are all ex-students. (As is ~x~, but his entire contribution to The Rhexis was to crash it in 2004 by trying to upload a picture of his dog, and promising (and then failing) to run our 2005 election coverage.)
However, we would be fascinated, and more than happy to publish (or not) any further information you could provide on this subject. Presumably you are "The Gate"? If not, could you drop us a name (false if you prefer)?
If anybody has anything they can share on the Dingle fiasco, feel free to let us know. Comment on this article, or e-mail email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to get in more discreet contact with Withiel or myself.
