I just hope all the UB40 lawyers are taking copies of these web pages. and all the posters 2 and adverts. It surely all goes into the pot for the claims about misrepresentation and damages, making false use of the name.

This singular fan of said person, is soooo wrong!!! My significant other and I attended a UB40 concert, late summer, and they were GREAT!!! I kept telling my partner that Duncan and Robin were so classy, UB40 has a presence on stage that is uncomparable.
It is so SAD that their brother and his company have to be so low and attack the individuals that catapulted him to his stardom, and if he continues he will never reach the stardom he once had.

If he continues in the way he has been lately Lilia, he'll have trouble reaching the dizzy heights of the gutter. He's never going to scrape back even a quarter of the stardom he once had, let alone the audience that was available to him, via fronting UB40. Its obvious that "the management team" realise that else they wouldn't be using UB40 to advertise everywhere.

I think had he left amicably, he would have kept his original fan-base. I was ready to support both UB40 and Ali and wish them both luck in their seperate careers and listen to both of their music. However, I think his choices have cut ties not only from UB40 completely but from the true UB40 fan-base. So instead of keeping his original fans, he had to start his own new seperate fan-base.

His stunts have been a slap in the face not only to his friends and family, but to the fans who followed him at any point in his 30 year career.
