What connects Mazher Mahmood to “Southern Investigation” and the Daniel Morgan murder? Not much, if anything at all. The “Fake Sheikh” was known for being in the employ of Rupert Murdoch, as thousands of others were. Mahmood stung celebrities, such as John Alford, who would not have served a day in jail if he had not boasted of obtaining hard drugs.
Hint – an Arab Sheikh would cannot speak Arabic is usually fake. Perhaps Peter “the Armenian Shakespeare” Jukes would confirm this? Apart from Alford a hypnotist, Jonathan Royle blames Mahmood for destroying his life. No, Royle, your greed did that as it did with Alford.
If one wants to make a programme, a good topic would be why Jonathan Rees, former boss of “Southern” has not received adequate compensation from the Metropolitan Police for their fitting up of an innocent man. I asked this question to the fragrant Penny Mordaunt plus the other four Tory candidates, all are schtumm thus far. Or could naughty boy Gurpreet Rai give a reply?
