On second thought, I'll get back to you later.

But let's fantasise for a moment and assume that Mike knew that Eddie had found the diary in Battlecrease. I'm really not sure why it's more obvious that he would refuse Paul Dodd's offer than accept it. If he knew the diary came from Battlecrease he might have been worried that Paul Dodd would take ownership and block publication of the book so accepting the offer would have negated that problem.
That. Exactly.

I guess we're just supposed to accept that because of abstract hypothetical convolutions he was "in no position" to do any such deal. I don't buy it.

You mean from notes taken by Harrison? I doubt the conversation was recorded on tape. The same with most of the other conversations. All we have are the participants' memories of what was said.

Ah, so you didn't stay long. Understood.

I probably wasn't on the list because I bought my ticket on the day and went with David Upton, a man I believe you have met before.
If I have, I'm sorry but I don't remember the name.

Tell Keith, if he wants a straightener or something then he's free to PM me
Even better than that, mate. Keith intends to come on board! In his own words: "So that people can voice their criticisms of my research methodology and findings together with their suspicions about my motives for remaining involved with this subject over the past 25 years - directly to me."

Love,

Caz

Not with you, mate. What hard to swallow coincidences are involved with a hoax created, say, prior to 1970, which is what the Rendell team concluded?
How would that affect which post house the hoaxer meant, assuming they were thinking of a specific watering hole?

Love,

Caz

I gave you his full name, Mike. Go check all the posts. I'm not running around after you, I'm a busy woman.

Love,

No need to be facetious, mate. Keith was thinking you might want to introduce yourself to him, so you could put to him all the questions you have raised here, only to treat the responses you get here with contempt and mockery - that's when you bother to read them.

Keith could only enquire if a Mike J. G. was on their list, as that was all the info he had about you.

Like I said to Kaz, the questions I wanted to ask were already being discussed, wasn't David's article passed on to Keith?
I have no idea. I wasn't there. What article?

Thanks, Henry.

It is indeed futile to discuss anything with people who invent absurd scenarios just so they can knock them down, such as the floorboards coming up 'about 50 seconds' before Mike phoned London. I thought you were better than that, Henry. Seems I was mistaken. Why would anyone do this, unless what has been suggested is not nearly absurd enough for comfort? If the floorboards need to be up first thing that morning, say by 8.30, before the wiring job can even begin, and Mike could be calling London when he gets home after collecting his daughter from primary school, which would be around 3.30, there would be seven hours between the two events. You can bet your arse that your 50 second scenario is 'not only unconvincing but actually counterproductive'. It's also unworthy of a gentleman and pretty unscholarly.

Question for the weekend:

How many electricians does it take to lift a floorboard? One? Two?

Presumably the same as the number of hoaxers it would take.

Love,

Caz
