After a member of the London Magpie Group confronted Mike Ashley on Monday, the NUFC owner is believed to have ignored his questions, simply saying “don’t bother me no more!”.
It’s no more than we’d expect from Ashley – a man whose inability to communicate has been shown up over the last 10 years – although we don’t know how we was approached by this member of the London-based protest group.
It’s also believed that he completely ignored the fan when asked if he’d be backing Benitez in January – also refusing to comment on questions about the sale of the club. It’s worth noting this happened BEFORE his intriguing takeover interview with Sky on Tuesday night.
Here’s what’s been said on social media since their altercation today:
The @LondonMagpies caught up with Mr Ashley at Parliament today hoping for a polite conversation.

After Saturday’s 11-minute walk in flopped quite badly, with ‘under 1,000 people’ believed to have been involved, it’s good to see some fans are taking matters into their own hands to put pressure on Ashley.
Will it work? Who knows, but this combined with his recent comments on Sky suggest he may not be in charge of our club for too much longer.
