The Lord Agnew “Kraken” Files

You will of course all know Lord Agnew, he was the chap tasked with being the Minister of State at the Cabinet Office and HM Treasury which included Counter Fraud, during the time the Bounce Back Loan scheme was live.

How can we forget the time he had the mother of all hissy fits in the Chamber of the House of Lords and blamed everyone else for the failings of that scheme, banged his papers on the desk, threw his resignation letter at a colleague, and minced out of the Chamber to rapturous applause and cheers.

I have it on very good authority some of the applause and cheers were from Members who were glad to see the back of him.

Spend a few minutes reliving that moment, as its a beautiful work of art…..

He has of course, since he legged it, gone on to all manner of new business ventures and jobs, whilst of course remaining as a Member of the House of Lords.

One of those new jobs is the face of a Bounce Back Loan Bounty Hunting firm, who, in layman’s terms, buys up the rights to chase people found to have misused Barclays BBL funds, buying up those rights for as little as £1 and in return if they manage to get anything they get a huge chunk of the money recovered.

Here are a just a couple of the many news updates I have compiled about that role

Barclays Given Approval By The British Business Bank to Extend Their Pilot to Utilize the Bounce Back Loan “Bounty Hunters” That Lord Agnew is the Face Of to Go After BBL Blagging Company Directors – Also, Another Well Known BBL Lender is Now Also Part of That Pilot

Lord Agnew’s Bounce Back Loan Bounty Hunters Pay £1 to Liquidators to Take On a Case (They Will Get a Share of Money Recovered From) to Recover Funds From a Director Who is Today Starting a 12 Year Ban for Blagging Two BBLs After Barclays Got His Company Wound Up in the High Court

Anyway, what you may not know is that Lord Agnew is the Director of Match the Cash Limited trading as Guarantor My Loan, they offer loans at interest rates that would cause you to fall off your chair at.

He was Appointed Director of that Company from 29 August 2013 then Resigned on 24 October 2017, then not long after he resigned and put on one of the best, what can I call it, “acts” in the House of Lords Chamber seen for quite some time, and worthy of an Oscar, he became Director again on 1 June 2022.

The interest charged on those loans really would make your hair curl, such as for example here are two loans that a young lady, sadly deep in the grip of a gambling problem that Match the Cash Limited had documents showing she was, got from his firm during his first stint as Director, during 2016.

I still shudder to think, who on God’s Green Earth thought the man offering loans like that to vulnerable people would be a spiffing choice in the Conservative Government and gave him the job as Minister of State at HM Treasury back on the 14th of February 2020. Oh, Boris was Prime Minister at that time, and Rishi Sunak the Chancellor, enough said.

Anyway, I can reveal that Match the Cash Limited trading as Guarantor My Loan have had their hands, legs and backsides slapped multiple times for some of the most heinous actions a very high interest rate loan provider could commit, a selection of the documents surrounding those cases and the outcomes I have loaded up below.

Before I do, here is Lord Agnew diverting attention away from himself, by laying into and accusing Starling Bank and in turn the much loved and respected CEO of Starling Bank at the time, Anne Elizabeth Boden MBE, of all manner of skulduggery.
