An update from Robert via his Facebook page.

morning, Wednesday 22nd. July, 2016, immediately, gently, peacefully.
T carried Wilf down to his prepared space in the garden by the rose
arbour, and laid him to rest. A beautiful creature, and a joyful

Endless Grief: an Age Of Greed characterized by the Abuse Of Trust.
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Jun 21, 2016
From Robert Fripp’s Facebook page today:
Endless Grief undermined my confidence in the process of law, the public-school educated, the English Gentleman, chartered accountants and the professions, players within public life and charities: pretty much all those institutions that were an end-result of a long process of developing-standards in public and national life throughout C19-20th. Britain. In the postwar Dorset of my youth, I was brought up to have confidence in these institutions. In attempting to understand the mechanics of Endless Grief, I am also attempting to understand the present era: an Age Of Greed characterized by the Abuse Of Trust.
How to see all of this? The universe in a grain of sand, the Human Condition in one sorry management firm?
Robert’s diary: 12th March 2012
Development firm loses another appeal.
The EG Way continues?
DQ’s Tara Cubbon acted for Lloyds Bank
International Limited (the “Bank”) in successfully striking out the
claim by The Slegaby Estate Limited (“TSEL”) and Samuel George Alder
(“Mr Alder”) against the Bank pursuant to the doctrine of res judicata
and as an abuse of process...
His Worship further held that TSEL and
Mr Alder had failed to treat the First Proceedings as they should have
done. They had no excuse for not pursuing matters fully and adopting an
“unduly casual attitude” in their response. This was contrary to the
onus in the 2009 Rules on the expedition of litigation and the avoidance
of multiplicity of proceedings and in His Worship’s view was an attempt
to have “a second bite of the cherry” following the dismissal of their
appeal in the First Proceedings.
Court confirms law on res judicata and abuse of process.
