Russell Ambrose meets Mr Ab's: Transcript of recording
Russell Ambrose: Myra Pridham, that poor poor lady, and you probably already know a lot about Myra Pridham.
She fought through lawyers for seven years to get £200,000... when she got it, 40 to 50 grand was deducted by the benefits people... so OK, seven years and 150 grand she ended up with, and the lawyers got 250,000 - I don’t know that to be an exact…
Sasha Rodoy: 185,000
Russell Ambrose: I don’t know that to be an exact number. And she got no closure on it, I spoke to her. Sasha asked me to give her a ring, she wanted me to speak to her - no closure at all!
She said, "Well I am still no better off than I was seven years ago and the money doesn’t mean anything to me, and I am still hurt and disappointed and angry..."
And so Sasha said it would mean a lot, I mean, I forgotten about her already!
Seven years later you don’t remember these things do you? (only blinded, why would he remember)
So, just seven years as I say... I wasn’t actually sued in that case (HE WAS) the blame is always on the doctor, and Optimax was basically out of it... And I got a letter about six months before the case saying Myra Pridham has raised her ugly head (nervous laugh) - well the case has raised her ugly head not Myra!
Sasha Rodoy: Careful!
Russell Ambrose: "Careful"? Are you recording?
Sasha Rodoy: No...
Russell Ambrose: I don’t mind if you're recording!
Sasha Rodoy: No I am not - there we go (places mobile phone on table)
Russell Ambrose: Are you recording? (to Mr Ab’s who shakes his head no)
Fine! If you're recording I will be less guarded in what I say, less open...
Sasha Rodoy: You know I'm not!
Russell Ambrose: MORE guarded - right!
If you're not recording I'll say things about various doctors openly…
