Many are overlooking the connection between Ian Hurst (erstwhile favourite of Fleet Street until his credibility was questioned) and Hurst (or Martin Ingram as he was also known in Ireland, north and south) and his phone calls to Bryan Madagan, a bailiff of south London.
The cockney dulcet tones of Madagan are similar to those of increasingly desperate Norfolk resident ex Det Con Derek G Haslam, whose Southery residence was taken off the market (unsold?) a few days ago.
Ian Hurst claimed to know all about “Stakeknife” – Freddie Scappaticci – yet never worked on the Belfast desk whilst a Lance Corporal with the Intelligence Corps (not a commissioned officer, please note).
Peter Jukes latest article alludes to masonic lodges. “Manor Of Bensham 7114” was top heavy with police but unlike “Manor Of St James” is not an affinity lodge, nor is “Blackheath 1320” which Haslam, Holmes and others frequented.
Alan “Taffy” Holmes suicide is central to the Daniel Morgan murder cover up and can explain why Haslam (who killed a man whist drink driving in a stolen car and only received a £60 fine) was able to leave The Met in October 1989 feigning illness “playing the mental card”.
Operation Kalmyk may resurface soon.
