I guess he's in it, neck deep. Let's see if he really is made of Teflon.

Hopefully the beginning of the end. As much as Bernie would love to push the concept, no-one's indispensible.
He'll find a way out. Perhaps move to Venezuela and move in with Hugo Chavez, no one will be able to touch him then.

Bernie said that he had been worried that if he hadn't paid the money, then Gribkowsky would have alerted the UK tax authorities to "things" that might have led to a tax inquiry.
"The only alternative was that the British tax authorities followed a case that would have been very expensive for me," he had said.
"The tax risk would have exceeded £2bn...I paid him [£28 million] to keep calm and not to do silly things."

... leaving two other teams running around Fred Flintstone style
