McGeever story does not shock me one bit

I'M not surprised by the Kevin McGeever story.

A debt-ridden property developer creates the illusion that he had been kidnapped to avoid his creditors.

What's all the fuss about? What about that other great illusion we were sold? The story that we could all become rich by buying properties, with money we didn't have and could never pay back.

Mr McGeever is to be pitied. He is no worse or better than the many others who have fled this country in more subtle ways to avoid their debts.
