Live evidence in the trial of the century has concluded. As Peter Jukes always says “in a WORLD EXCLUSIVE” Goggzilla can state that – Justice Mitting (Plebgate) will receive submissions up to an including Friday 10th February 2017, and then consider the verdict.
Michael Gillard managed to nail all pertinent points when he alluded to the satirical magazine “Private Eye” and how the Metropolitan Police are implicated in the Daniel Morgan murder cover up. “Zelo Street” got everything wrong, with Fenton’s take on the trial (he was no less accurate concerning Rod Liddle). The evidence of DCI Noel Beswick verged on the farcical throughout the trial – noticeable that he had to take culpability, given the absence of his boss, Mr Jacqui Hames (DSC Dave Cook) who is still skulking, unarrested, in Kirkcaldy, Fife.
It will be difficult to see how Judge Mitting can exonerate plod, Asst Commissioner John Yates has a less than glorious part in using discreditted witnesses such as Gary Eaton and James Ward, or paid informers such as Derek Gordon Haslam, now in Cambridgeshire.
