Maybe there is no casino because , in spite of Sonas getting planning permission, FF lost the election, so a change in The gambling Act was no longer on the cards.
Maybe Michael Wall brought the $45K over on Dec 5th 94 in the suitcase. Larkin refused to say what currency it was. She never even looked in the bag when lodging it the next Monday morning.
Mr. Wall's buddy is Norman Turner, the same guy who tried to bribe Tom Morrissey around the same time, over the same project, with roughly the same amount of money, £30,000
Norman Turners buddy in Sonas was Mr. White, an old school friend of Aherns. What an incredible coincidence.
Across the big sea is Ogden Corporation, once voted Americas worst board of directors in Fortune magazine. They like to build Casinos, and dams in places like India and such like. Probably not short of a few dollars either.
Forget about OO'C and Quarryvale for a few minutes.
