i think mani's post basically shows he doesn't have reni's back at all. ian's outburst and mani's post show that reni was right to be paranoid, no? essentially they were all faking it for the dough. the hugs at the end of each gig always seemed a bit phony, a bit showbiz. at the glasgow gig, mani was even laughing with his roadie at ian trying to sabotage reni's intro to resurrection.
but all this brings into question - when the roses originally split, why was ian seemingly keen to big up his friendship with reni and lay all the blame at squire's door? weird shit.
