The trouble with “Byline” is that they expect to be taken seriously yet rely on poor sources. Take, for instance, John Ford.
A known liar and open joke among journalists, Ford is cited as “credible and true”. Also, Jacqui Hames, a pal of Dando. Hames’ spouse ex Det Ch Supt Dave Cook needs no introduction here as he was found guilty of trying to frame and fit up Jonathan Rees and others. His minion, half Jamaican ex psychiatric patient, Derek G Haslam, was paid to plant a bug inside “Southern Investigations”. Haslam makes a lucrative living by perjuring yet Peter Jukes expects us to believe him, with all sorts of bizarre “Rees implicated in Serbian assassination” tosh.
I met Barry George and his sister earlier this year, it was obvious that the Metropolitan Police were, again, merely being lazy, with New Scotland yard co-ersing a confession from George. As with Rees, in the Daniel Morgan murder, any suspect would do.
Finally to Nish Bruce and is there a connection to “Operation Kenova” and the Kesh ambush? Bruce was ex 2nd Battalion Parachute Regt and SAS. Time to find out.
