Laurie Flynn opens the latest addition to Peter Jukes podcast, he is joined by Alastair Morgan. I formerly disliked Mr Jukes, now I merely feel pity for him. His “new evidence” hinges on David Bray’s magnus opus which has been reviewed (Goggzilla 26 Dec 2017).
Jukes attempts to debunk the main plausible theories on Daniel Morgan’s murder, cuckoldry and Maltese drugs connections. Poor Jukes then uses the testimony of Derek G Haslam, now hiding in Downham Market, to prop up a new idea, that Daniel Morgan was murdered due to a massive story he was going to sell to the erstwhile Fleet Street (overtime at Catford police station was mentioned in 1987, not reason enough for murder nor £40,000 from the red tops). I urge readers to look up my post on the “Poulton debrief” 27 April 2017, in which Haslam first promulgates a wild tale of PIRA, Miami and a “Mr Kranski” who wanted to land millions of pounds worth of hard drugs on the Norfolk coast. Jukes makes much of Haslam’s testimony on Morgan and Holmes. Holmes is dead, Morgan is dead, not much corroboration is there?
How reliable is Haslam? His lack of veracity is well known, a paid perjurer, who sabotaged SHAC (Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty) in addition to derailing ex miner’s compensation in Thurnscoe, and perjuring in the John “Reg” Elliott case, the Eamonn Harris case and many others.
8.00 in to the podcast…
No mention that Haslam and Holmes were in 7114 Manor of Bensham lodge, or that after Holmes suicide Haslam was told (ordered, asked) to leave the lodge. Haslam’s nickname was not “Serpico” but “Judas rat” (that is one of the more printable ones). Haslam put pressure on Holmes over an internal police investigation, hence the suicide. Soon after Haslam was forced to quit The Met claiming mental illness. Haslam and his son, P.C James A Haslam are now in the same lodge as Chief Constable of Norfolk and ACPO lead on child porn, Simon Bailey. Sarah Hamlin recently left her post as Asst Ch Constable.
12.30. Ray Adams and Derek G Haslam, the reason for Haslam wanting to discredit Adams is due to Haslam taking (without consent) Adams car and whilst drunk killing a pedestrian (Poulton debrief).
Sid Fillery was fully exonerated by Mitting and Jonathan Rees and the Vian Brothers were both fully exonerated by the Court of Appeal (LLJ Coulson, King, McCombe). No mention is made of Daniel Morgan’s affairs, the Malta drugs connection is glossed over, and Jukes does not state that Daniel was a frequent visitor to the “Golden Lion” to buy drugs for Alastair (that is in Bray’s book).
22.30 how reliable is Bray? Not very. The Daniel Morgan Independent Panel is to report next year but Jukes again does not state that Baroness O’Loan has dodgy links to the police.
What, then, is the new evidence? That Holmes and Morgan knew each other? This is not in dispute. Jukes tries to pull Haslam out of the hat, like a magicians white rabbit. Tellingly, Haslam lies about his Father’s colour, his past, his present and his future. Can be found on Twitter as @Rochf0rd and @suzydent5.
Where is the new evidence? None can be found. Jukes is now into potboiler territory. Rake the shekels in.
