He sneaked into Scotland for three gigs and found his behavior as a plagiarist had followed him, so he was not seen as musician on stage but a rip off merchant, so we hope he doesn’t come back, he’s had enough money for nothing. And his crocodile tears about hiding the fact he had cancer and looking for sympathy, the guy never even asked me how I was keeping when I had traveled to London to speak to him, in my book this guys character is so low, you’d have to be a bug to see eye level with him. Its nearly 2018 so lets see how he behaves in the New Year, however if cancer didn’t get him to see his faults, perhaps there wont be much change, what on earth did the Knopflers see in him.

Well he’s started 2018 with a bang, ‘I received a phone call from a friend of mine congratulating me,’ not Mark Knopfler that in 2018 Dire Straits would be going into the Rock Hall of Fame, and I Robert Marshal got a phone call from a friend of mine that he John Illsley was going to come clean about my part in Dire Straits, I thought the guy had a few loose nuts when I met him, now I know its not dementia or delusional hysteria he’s suffering from, its just that the old queen is a born liar and is needing another visit to his shrink, who if his treatment was based on his part in Dire Straits would have had to tell the doctor about me, so before you spin anymore stories Illsley remember a secret is only a secret if you keep it to yourself, and I never told a soul is just another crock of lies.

I’ve just read a news article in the Scottish Sun newspaper written before his failed attempt to be recognized as the founder of Dire Straits to the Scottish D.S. fans where he’s grovelling about Mark Knopfler being his friend, for if he wasn’t standing in front of the guy with his begging bowl with his Never Told a Soul bollocks honestly Mark. Not just the truth about me would come out but the reason for the brothers break up that obviously has the Illsley seedy characteristics about it, something I witnessed twice when I was in Deptford, that riled me to the point of decking the big queen stopped only by Mark telling me he had the situation with Illsley under control, or in his own words, ‘I know how to handle him,’ no you don’t pal you lost your brother because of him, and now your allowing him to lie while using your name to support him.
And in the article he claimed that Pick Withers came up with the name of the band, again making another person out to be a liar, and with the amount of artists that have come and gone during the time he’s been with Knopfler, its obvious his scheming and dishonesty has worked on them to, so its time for Knopfler to stop taking his forgetful medication and clean up his act and get the liar sorted out before the shite hits the fan and hits him on the face because of his former boyfriends hold over him, you might not be able to polish crap Mark but you can flush it down the toilet.

In fact if his head was not so empty he would have realized when I was writing the lyrics that not only the house in Deptfords surrounds were giving me the pictures in my mind, like Water of Love that I wrote from the gloomy hostility of the area surrounding the house, and after his second hostile attempt to threaten me about his sole claim on Mark Knopflers affections I wrote “Setting Me Up” and if you visualize the scenario of having been threatened by a six foot four nutter for showing to much attention, in a house somewhere in Deptford with two people you have only recently met, and your thinking to yourself, how the hell will I get out of here without using violence, well you say.

They say I’m the greatest bound for glory, well the word is that I’ve learned, I got the last part of your story, so I’m pulling out before you get burned, Well your hands are squeezing me down to the bone, but I’ve never saw you breaking no law, Stands to reason I got to leave you alone, What you taking me for, Are you setting me up to put me down, Your making me out to be a clown, You better give it up, Quit your messing around, You think I care for your reaction, you think I don’t understand, All you wanted was a piece of the action, Now you talk about another man. Robert Marshal

And that’s how setting me up became a lyric for the Dire Straits when you read the story behind Money for Nothing keep Setting Me Up in mind for in those lyrics that are about Knopfler and Illsley, see those yo yo’s was my way of responding to the way I’d been treated and believe me happy to vacate the premises, even with Illsley’s offer of introducing me to the younger Knopfler who had yet not returned to this house of intrigue and jealousy. This is why I know Illsley was playing the third party between the brothers, and though I’ve explained to David that with this conspiracy of him not being told about me should change his and Marks thinking about what went before, he continues to see Illsley as a friend and not the snake in the grass. And believe me I would love to see the brothers united, as I feel I’m partly to blame for whatever caused the split up between them, so come on guys read the lyrics.
