This is woeful, even by Jake Arnott and Byline’s standards.
The opening part on “Southern Investigations” is ripped off from Gillard’s “The Untouchables”. However, on the topic of “Alan Taffy Holmes” Arnott omits that ex Det Con Derek G Haslam was also a member of “Manor of Bensham” and expelled after the suicide of Holmes. The “Judas Rat” note was written by Haslam himself as was the “brake lining being cut” incident.
There was no “£100 million” landing of drugs, Holmes barely knew Daniel Morgan. Holmes was indeed betrayed by Haslam.
Kevin Lennon was facing a jail term and “verballed up” Jonathan Rees. Mention of Alex Marunchak puts a nasty focus on Ian Hurst/Martin Ingram, (a serial fantasist linked to half Jamaican, ex psychiatric patient Haslam). We await the publishing of the Daniel Morgan Independent Panel inquiry this afternoon.
