David Montgomery - the Mecom finally zap him out into space

Was it only three years ago that Madame Arcati - your free online seer - foresaw with excruciating exactitude the manner of the decline and fall of David Montgomery? This lunatic Scorpio has been in effect booted out of his alien-sounding Mecom media group: read here how I forecast his route map to the exit door at the hands of disconcerted colleagues. Even I shiver at my staggering psychic powers.

In all my years in the wretched trade called journalism I have never met a more miserable, mean and ghastly person than Mr Montgomery. I recall his second wife Heidi Kingstone lunching him and me at the Howard Hotel near the Temple tube many years ago, and all I can recall is his boast that he could calculate in an instant the required wordage for a given space in a newspaper layout.

I felt he'd missed his vocation as a Star Trek holographic interface in the form of a human male onboard the lost USS Voyager.

Isn't Fair Haven the daftest sub plot ever? Prepare to curse a certain Northern university if they do not give me a Ph.D place!

I feel I want to call you doctor already.

MA, I am curious what your views are regarding the new Astrological calendar. I am aghast and sure that they will remove me from my Scorpio sign ...this moves me to tears. Your predictions are always frighteningly accurate.

It's all a lot of nonsense. There are two astrological systems, sidereal and tropical; and Western stargazers tend to use the tropical. The two systems are out by 23 degrees as a result - in other words, both systems are still valid but quite different. Indian Vedic astrologers tend to use the sidereal system.

You are still a Scorpio my darling Steph and I a Gem.x

As a former Mirror reporter I recall Monty staying at the 5 star Howard during the early days of his time at Mirror Group. While slashing costs and making hundreds unemployed he hogged it at company expense. A total cunting bastard.

What Mecom publish? Anything we'd want to read? Never heard of them - or him.

Would you like me to wipe your botty, too? Mecom publish loads of European regional newspapers in languages Mr Montgomery could not read: a biopic would require subtitles.
