Got this from Evertonians4Change:
Rumour from the followtonians podcast www.followtonians.com from an "independent source". Property developer George Downing is rumoured to be trying to get a consortium together.
According to the ever reliable Wikipedia he is worth £500million. He was also the guy who was chucked out of the posh box at the City Of Manchester Stadium last season for taking the piss out of Garry Cook and Co cos we were winning 2-0.
But NSNO says: George Downing's people about takeover rumours, their comment?
"George has said there is no truth in this whatsoever"
More bullshit from the board?

This is where it should stop. There was never interest in buying the club. Point me in the directon of a super-wealthy businessman/women with a degree of sense that will let Kenwright and his bufoons control the club whilst they pour money into it. We as a collective are in dreamland, the fans, the board, the club as a whole are not anywhere nearer a solution. Deal with it folks, I am afraid.

Terry Leahy must also be very wealthy following his association with Tesco and Lord Granchester of the Moores empire is an Evertonian.
It would be interesting to read who else is worth a bob or two who have an affinity with Everton, the guy from Matalan, John Hargreaves, also seems to ring a bell. Surely there must be a consortium out there that can be formed to rid us of this shambles.

Obviously I know nothing about who they are in talks with, but what have QPR got that Everton haven't? I can only see one thing going for them and that is the London factor!

This is an old trick by the pricks that "run" our club so I hope no-one falls for this load of shite.

Craig the one thing that QPR have got that Everton have not has nothing to do with London. It is MONEY

Graham, granted they perhaps do not have the debt of us which is a fair point. So long as ecclestone etc do not call in any loans they have given the club!
My point is that it is all proof that people do want to buy football clubs at the moment. So people who support BK about the economy etc being a problem and all his other lies should seriously take a look at how BK is killing us.
