Was this a pattern?

Stuff reported at the weekend:

Sir ’s plans to build a world-class film museum in Shelly Bay were scuppered when Sir ’s partner sought $750,000 in consultancy fees to help secure the land.

I suggest people read the full article, which is potentially quite disturbing. I make no comment on the legality of what happened, recognising that there is an SFO investigation.

What I wonder about is whether this was a one off, or a regular thing. How many great projects may not have occurred because of such greedy demands?

Shelly Bay would be a wonderful location for a film museum. Hopefully the proposal can still happen one day.
