At the risk of becoming a TV review blog, here goes. I missed “Line of duty” as it was dire last week, apparently many viewers are getting hot and bothered that the Daniel Morgan murder and “Untold” podcast were name checked. Here goes.
Morgan was murdered by one of the Metropolitan police. The subsequent investigations owed much to lazy policing. Innocent men, connected to “Southern Investigations” were fitted up in the name of expediency. “Untold” is nothing more than Jukes parroting New Scotland Yard spooge, using a sole source even plod dubbed “unreliable and untrustworthy”.
My guess is that Zinzan, one of the “Untouchables” was brought in by Mercurio and paid a few quid to add some flavour. The Keystone Kops section of Avon and Somers*t Old Bill even went so far as to try and frame Morgan’s business partner, Jonathan Rees, in the “Bulmer’s art heist”.
Main suspect in Morgan’s murder? Fintan Creaven. Other strong candidates – Barry Wilmot and Tony McClean.
Motives? Either cuckoldry or the Maltese drugs cartel Morgan was loosely associated with. As to Jukes and “Untold” one of his backers is Max Mosley. It’s spankingly interesting.
