This is a story of a barefoot peasant boy from the mountains who took a dislike to corruption in the Greek financial system. His brother was a petty thief, and they did crime together. His brother was caught, so he broke into the jail. He stole a tank and drove it through the wall. This little caper earned him an all-expenses-paid holiday which he spent learning new skills.
He began robbing banks, an activity he turned out to have something of a flair for. Unusually for a bank robber, he did not spend the money on casinos and fast cars – he gave it away to the needy. One of his robberies netted a huge sum, but the police were onto him and chased him through the streets of the city. He created a smokescreen. Not exactly smoke – he thew clouds of money out of the car, caused pandemonium, and got away.
He was compared with Ned Kelly, Billy the Kid and Robin Hood. He never shot anyone, nor did he shoot at anyone. Eventually he was captured and jailed. He escaped by helicopter.
Credit cards had seen the amount of cash in banks dwindle, so he took to asking nice men with better than average nest eggs and a few modest castles for money, fairly large chunks of it. Some called this kidnapping for ransom. He was captured again. Chopper story part 2, even more exciting than part 1. He retired to a monastery. Or Cannes. Depends who you ask.
If this sounds like a better than average Hollywood script, that’s most likely because it’s true.
Another example of Scrollamation may be found at the ABC, where they write of Kerrie Packer, one of Australia’s press barons.
“He was a very big man,” recalls his former lawyer – now Federal Communications Minister – Malcolm Turnbull.
“And there was always a slight undertone of menace – sometimes genial, sometimes a sort of mocking menace – but there was a something unsettling about his presence.”
Packer’s temper was legendary but those who knew him talk of a complicated, contradictory character.
“There is a tendency to see Kerry as a mono-dimensional raging tyrant, the great Citizen Kane type of press baron, always pounding the desk and hurling abuse at minions,” Turnbull says.
“It was a much more complex picture than that.”
