The headless turkey runs around the farmyard, making lots of noise, except...

"SARGENT: ...I suggested to him he should try 25 Menlove Avenue."

which is what he was squawking about in the first place, before he was so inconveniently decapitated...

But as the sneak-thief idea is childish drivel there was no need for a ‘ruse.’

If only I listened to more dyslexic nonentities on the internet, my life would be so much better, I'm sure of it...

Poor me.

“What did he ask you ? — He said, “ Do you know, or can
you tell me, of Menlove Gardens East ? ” I said, “ There
is no Menlove Gardens East
; there is a Menlove Gardens
North, South, and West.” He said, “ I have been to
Menlove Gardens West, No. 25. The person I am looking
for does not live there, and the numbers are all even,” and
I suggested to him he should try 25 Menlove Avenue.”

Stop wriggling Rod.

No Menlove Gardens East.

Categorically, as I said.

He suggested that he should try a completetely different and useless address.

I didn’t really expect an apology but I didn’t expect Rod to scarper so quickly.

To recap.

I said that a policeman had categorically told Wallace that there was no MGE.

Then Rod ‘integrity’ Crosby posts from the trial transcript but conveniently misses out the part where the Constable did indeed tell him categorically that there was no MGE.

Then the Constable says that he could try Menlove Avenue. And that he could find a directory at the Police Station. Which smacks of the Constable thinking “well if you don’t believe me try a directory.” Probably feeling slightly irked at Wallace suggesting that he didn’t know the area of his beat.

Let’s remember that Beattie had written down the message at the club. They had discussed it at some length. Wallace knew categorically that the address he wanted was Menlove Gardens East and not Menlove Avenue. The advice to try Menlove Avenue would have been completely useless to Wallace. A man without an ulterior motive would categorically have ignored it and gone straight home.

So......I was categorically right and Rod was categorically wrong.

Not for the first time

I’ve just read this in the trial transcript. It’s from William Henry Roberts:

“There were four £i notes ? — ^Yes.

Did you find any blood upon them ? — I found blood on
the one which is right in the middle of the bundle.

Was there any blood on the outer one ? — No blood on
any of the others.”


If Qualtrough/Mr X took the notes from the vase and decided that they were useless how could he have transferred blood onto one note in the middle of the bundle (which obviously means that the blood was wet) and not transfer blood onto the outer notes?

It seems impossible to me?

It is rare I see someone get owned and destroyed on the internet as bad as Rod is getting embarrassed here. I mean, wow
