This loosely cobbled together group of alter-ego blogs was doomed to failure as a coalition (or confederation as he put it and we all know what happened to the Confederacy).
Richard made quite a few classical management and marketing errors in forming the Bass Bagging Hexagram not the least being the confusing logo employed which he is now desperately trying to sell. Good luck with that I say.

RIP The Bass Bagging Hexagram. It was always an awkward balancing act.
In typical CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ fashion of immediate response and follow up we called a meeting with one of The Bass Bagging Hexagram members to provide an update of the happening.
Welcome to Bin Hire
who, for privacy reasons for this interview we will call Dumpster and his image will be disguised:
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Welcome Bi ....Dumpster. Thanks for coming in again
DUMPSTER: Thanks TC and thanks for keeping my identity secret. That Richard can be an unforgiving so and so.
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Er ... that's OK, glad to help. Is that tarpaulin comfortable?
DUMPSTER: Yes, ta, I like green.
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Well let's get into it then. Why did The Bass Bagging Hexagram fold?
DUMPSTER: It was always going to TC, you know that. What with that naff logo that Richard chose and the fact that he's such an egoist he didn't let anyone else have any input
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Is that right? I thought that he promoted you to communications director or something.
DUMPSTER: Ha. That's a laugh.
DUMPSTER: That sound you make in the back of your throat when you think something's funny.
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Ha ha. You got me there. That's from The Young One's isn't it.
DUMPSTER: Yep. That's why I like talking to you TC - you have a great knowledge of British comedy unlike Richard. The Prowses are Germans you know and of course Germans have no sense of humour.
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: So, Bi ...Dumpster, the communications director position didn't work out. What did he make you do?
DUMPSTER: He made me clean his bloody toilet and make the coffee - hee hee, little does he know it but I wiped out his coffee cup with the same cloth AFTER I cleaned the toilet.
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: OK, I see. Did he favour anyone else on The Bass Bagging Hexagram?
DUMPSTER: Well, Angry Jesus of course as he's scared of him and he kind of gave a lot of help to his namesakes Richard's Bass Bag 2 and Richard's Bass Bag 3.
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Yeah those losers need all the help they can get. Anyone else?
DUMPSTER: He's pretty tolerant of his brother Robert and his useless and disappearing blogs he ....
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Blood is thicker than water.
DUMPSTER: Blood is blacker than water.
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Blacker? Are you sure? I thought ....
DUMPSTER: I saw Richard cut his tongue once - a paper cut only but he still awarded himself a bravery medal for it. His blood was black.
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Black?
DUMPSTER: Yes, black. Like a spiders. I took a photo of it .....
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Ew. I think we'll leave that thought.
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: Look Bi ..... Dumpster. That's all we've got time for. Thanks for coming in. You can keep the tarpaulin just in case Richard or one of his remaining cronies are about.
DUMPSTER: Great thanks
CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ: And Dumpster, do you mind taking away some of this garden rubbish I have here?
DUMPSTER: My pleasure TC. See you next time.
