yep, it's me again, with another news trivia item showcasing such colossal human wretchedness that it can't go unreported. A Leicestershire Star Trek fan who got into debt making his home look like the Starship Enterprise has gone bankrupt. Tony Alleyne, 52 ... remember as you digest the remainder of this article that Tony Alleyne is aged FIFTY FUCKING TWO OF YOUR EARTH-YEARS, folks. ... spent nine years and £30,000 transforming his flat and used another £100,000 to launch a company which offered similar makeovers. appalling enough, i think you'll agree. however, what makes it especially offensive is the fact that ... the schemes were funded by loans and credit cards and he has filed for bankruptcy with debts of £166,000. "I set up a business, it did not work and I tried to finance it with credit cards, which was daft really." no shit. one begins to imagine that Mr Alleyne, instead of trying to recreate fictional worlds in his own home, might want to take a educational trip to the real fucking world. Mr Alleyne, who is separated from his wife ... SURPRISE ... said he recently filed for bankruptcy at Coventry County Court. When Mr Alleyne failed to sell the original version of his Starship Enterprise home for £700,000, 18 months ago, he gutted it. He is now refitting the flat as the spaceship from the later Star Trek series, Voyager, using income support payments. um. it seems somebody isn't getting the message. so let's review: millions of people are freezing to death in cardboard boxes out on the streets, dying of nosocomial superbugs in squalid public hospitals, and working 70-hour weeks just to put their kids through school. and Tony Alleyne TAKES MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT and uses it to TURN HIS HOME INTO A SPACESHIP. and then you guys wonder why i'd like to exterminate your species.
