James Stunt

His international man of mystery act is all well and good, but a fluctuating weight and preference for shiny suits combine, at times, to give him the air of a David Brent rather than a James Bond.

I think we can take it that the Mail doesn’t like him.

  1. Bernie certainly did a bang up job raising his daughters for them to be attracted to such obvious shits.

  2. What I don’t get is that this very showy act he puts on requires levels of conspicuous consumption that surely have to be backed by something fairly substantial (can’t just borrow the requisite cash pile from the bank), but what on earth is it? If he did get rich quick it surely can’t have been in gold or art. Is it all just a giant inheritance?

  3. Ah, I was under the (quite possibly completely false) impression that his flash bastardry preceded the relationship. If it didn’t I’m even more perplexed why she would have seen him as a catch… I mean it’s a daft thing to be attracted to, but plenty of women are, and if you take that one major defining characteristic away from him, what else is left as a focus of attraction?

  4. MyBurningEars, he’s a shit, that’s enough for many women. The flash is just there to get the initial attention.

  5. He was a bit flash before marrying her. But only in the way that hiring a nice car for the weekend and spending a bit too much on nightclubs is a bit flash, there wasn’t much evidence of much more that I’ve seen. So do-able if you’ve made a bit of cash and not interested in saving.

    To be fair, he wasn’t quite as David Brent-ish early on as he is now. Though that’s a relative statement!

    Makes sense, thanks. Apparently there’s a healthy rental market in fancy sports cars for weekend hire, wonder what percentage of it is for showing off to girls.

  7. “MBE, about 98 per cent, I should imagine.” Aha, so you put the homosexualite part of the population at 2%, do you?

  8. imho James Stunt looks like a spiv in an episode of Minder who Tel would give a slap before Chisholm nicks dodgy geezer Stunt.

  9. I always assumed his name was rhyming slang.

    There’s a sort of gleefulness to his spivving that almost (almost) arouses a tinge of admiration. A bit like that Shkreli bloke.

    If it got him married to the Ecclestone millions, the occasional sorts car hire was a damned good investment on his part.
