My father used to be loving, certainly when my mother was alive, but he never showed any emotion, except anger and displeasure.
If you ever meet my father, he will put on an act; he has always done that to protect himself from people knowing the real truth about him.
He will come across as very polite and “helpful” but what he is doing is to con whomever he is speaking to. He will lie through his teeth to hide the truth, exactly what he has been up to.
People who talk to him or interview him will come away with the thought “this man is fine and is talking the truth. He is no criminal and a “loving” father and widower; he has nothing to hide”.
But when everyone has gone, he schemes again and, if he thinks that I have put the “visitors” up to it and he will try and hurt me some more; he will hurt me financially using his associates at Berwin Leighton Paisner and Paicolex Trust Management AG. Or he will hurt me another way by asking Verity and/or her mother to allege more falsehoods and to get me arrested, as he knows that I cannot deal with stress and the resultant actions by the police will hurt me emotionally, mentally and physically.
This is the measure of my REAL father. He is vindictive and scheming and will do whatever it takes to hurt his second son, the unfavoured one and, of course, to protect the real truth of all his actions from being exposed.
