Jon Austin wrote this interesting piece.
As with “Crategate” and Det Ch Supt Fiona MacCormack allowing thirty crates of evidence crucial to acquitting Jonathan Rees to “disappear” we now see the Metropolitan Police overusing cunctatory tactics again. Glenn Vian died before he could see justice. Baroness Nuala O’Loan faces a bleak future – throw high profile plod, such as John Yates, Chris Jarratt, ex Det Ch Supt Dave Cook and minions, under the wheels, or else lose all public trust (she is almost there, anyway).
The Channel 4 and “Indefinite films” programme was a double edged sword, it did indeed “trigger” an avalanche of curiosity, but also ended the occlusion of who actually murdered Morgan. As said previously, the “Aussie Paul” jealous husband, in addition to the Maltese drugs syndicate theories are now abandonned – it was a murder committed by one of the Metropolitan Police themselves, then subsequently Jonathan Rees, the Vian Brothers and Sid Fillery were framed. Protecting the guilty is a New Scotland Yard hallmark, the killer of Blair Peach fled to Corfu to run a bar.
One must not be surprised that the panel are kicking the ball into the long grass, Old Bill did this with my case when I defeated the UK at the ECHR. Jon Austin is good on Essex topics (murder of Lee Balkwell) but could have acknowledged that Goggzilla put the unredacted “Operation Tiberius” in the public domain.
