Today is the 28th anniversary of the death of the brother of my daughter’s
partner of nearly as many years, Alastair Morgan. You may have heard him on Radio
4’s Today programme this morning.
He recorded a long interview last night but the BBC’s lawyers pulled the plug because they were concerned about contempt of court. I believe some journalists who may have been involved in that murder, or at least came to know the murderers later, are currently in the dock.
The BBC’s broadcast was as big a sham as any Bexley council meeting is. Everything you may have heard today was extracted from the BBC archives (although some was recent but not brand new) and filled five minutes largely with stale air.
After wasting more than a year because what I would call deliberate police obfuscation verging on the corrupt, the second Home Office panel chairman, Baroness Nuala O’Loan appears to be making more progress than the last one, about whom the least said in public the better.
It is my job to keep Alastair Morgan’s website alive on the rare occasions he decides to update it. Most of the developments are too sensitive to go on line, but today he has issued a new press release and handed a letter into the offices of the Murdoch press. I am afraid these mucky phone hackers have been involved with people with an even murkier past.
