Maybe Paul Robinson’s recent prison sentence in Neighbours is comeuppance for one of soaps all-time biggest baddies! Let’s not forget all the scandals and crimes that dastardly Mr Robinson has been mixed up with over the years. Here’s a reminder of the top 10…
1. Paul got brother-in-law Philip Martin involved in a fraudulent scheme and had to flee to Brazil to escape jail, while Philip took the rap.
2. He almost manipulated the residents of Ramsay Street into selling their properties to private enterprise Affirmacon so that they can build a shopping complex on the site of the cul-de-sac.
3. He polluted the local Wetlands with toxic chemicals in order to get the land cheaply, to further build his empire.
4. In 2004, Paul returned to Erinsborough and sets fire to Lassiters, killing Gus Cleary when Gus caught him in the act of Arson.
5. Paul, together with deranged lover Izzy Hoyland, planted explosives in a fruit van almost killing Carmella and Oliver.
6. Paul bought the Erinsborough News and turned it into a sleazy tabloid paper that reported on scandal after scandal of the local residents. He eventually had to step down as Editor when it was discovered he was falsifying stories.
7. During the Erinsborough bushfires, Paul left Kirsten for dead after taking her 4×4 to escape the blaze.
8. Paul got revenge on teenager Josh Willis for sleeping with his ex, Naomi Canning, by planting drugs in his sports bag.
9. In 2015, Paul planned to close Erinsborough High so that he could sell the land and push through a luxury housing development.
10. Earlier this year, Paul swapped Steph Scully’s medication for psychotropic drugs in order to get her re-sectioned and away from Ramsay Street.
And let’s not forget…
Paul Robinson, serial womanizer, fathered psychopath Robert, who sought to kill him for abandoning him and his siblings Cameron and Elle as children. Robert’s actions caused chaos and destruction on Ramsay Street, kidnapping his father, bombing a plane that caused the deaths of Harold Bishop’s family, and ultimately ended in the death of his twin Cameron!
