The Lying Laverty’s Aren’t The First And They Won’t Be The Last

Published on 8th November 2017 by Stickboy BKK

The story of the Brit who was “mugged at gunpoint” and left with multiple leg fractures as he stood waiting for his missus while she used the toilet in a Patong bar had bullshit written all over it when it surfaced a couple of days ago.

I recieved dozens of messages and emails from readers and followers tipping me off thinking I’d missed it but I hadn’t – I simply chose to sit back and wait to see what new information came to light as the initial reports of the incident were full of holes and lacking critical details to give the story credibility.

Remember, a foreigner had been robbed at gunpoint and physically attacked stood close to a bar in a busy tourist area – dozens of eyewitnesses, right?

Wrong. When new details emerged it was soon clear that Michael Laverty and his wife Denise were a pair of liars who came up with the elaborate tale in the hope foolish friends and sympathetic strangers would donate a bit of something to their £10,000 online fundraiser to “get them home”.

Get them home my arse.

No, the cash wasn’t to get them home or pay for medical bills. It was to allow them do a runner from Thailand and away from a great big mess of their own making.

There was no mugging and the leg injuries Michael Laverty sustained came from jumping over a balcony in a resort he wasn’t even staying at.

Just what he was doing trying room doors before he jumped only he knows and I doubt he will ever tell the truth. But then again, he might sell his story to a UK red top and spew out another tall tale of how his drink had been spiked and he didn’t know what he was doing.

Why not? The man is a liar.

The Lying Lavertys

In the past I have run dozens of stories of tourists in apparent trouble including muggings, robberies and rapes, plus a kidnapping or two (remember this one Abducted American Adds A New Chapter To The Tale) pointing out the holes in their stories which mostly ends with the keyboard warriors going off on one.

The normal assumption by the majority is I have no sympathy for those who have found themselves in trouble in a far away place and I’m just slagging victims off for clicks which is never the case.

As you all know, i’m no reporter or journalist, just a guy who shares the odd bit of news I think is of interest but I’m wise enough to know a story without times and places, details and descriptions together with photos and facts needs looking at more closely before jumping in with both feet.

More so when it involves crimes against foreigners as there are just too many idiots, liars and con artists like the lying Laverty’s who find themselves neck deep in the smelly stuff and come up with some big story their family and friends back home will believe because lots of bad things happen in Thailand that they seen on the Hangover movie and that reality show with all the scammers and scumbags.

The other mistake many make when visiting Thailand is thinking everyone here, including the police, are idiots. I’m not saying all cops are perfect but they aren’t the dumbasses many make them out to be especially when tourists are telling stories worthy of a cinema screening in a desperate attempt to get out of whatever hole they’ve gone and dug for them self.

Before Xmas we will have at least two or three more fabricated fantasies that will be exposed within a day or two of the sensational headlines that are taken as gospel.

As the title states: The Lying Laverty’s Aren’t The First And They Won’t Be The Last
