The journal was written by James Maybrick and he was Jack the Ripper.

I see Simon Wood has posted after yours (haven't read it yet). He recently published his theory that there was in fact no Jack the Ripper at all. I await your incredulous post to that.

Though I shan't wait long, of course ...

Observer (I love the irony!), you do realise that you are conversing with the very person who first noticed the letters on Kelly's wall, yes - you know, the ones which don't exist?

I'm loving your love-in together. It must be very reassuring for you all to be so self-congratulatingly right.

It's hot tonight, mind. Bet you all wish you'd been sheared this morning?

They were reluctant to give their names or their names were simply not given by The Times?

Goodness, you really do want to have it all ways. Still - that's your right, wouldn't suggest you shouldn't!

Hi Iconoclast,

You'd do well to stop running with the fox and hunting with the hounds.

Regards,

Simon

We're not discussing Simon Woods theories here, we're discussing the numerous incontrovertible, undeniable facts which refute the Diary

Quite. Do let us all know when you find one. (Has to follow Tom Mitchell's original criteria mind - you can't just chuck in, "Erm, like the writing doesn't match the known formal handwriting of James Maybrick even though it wasn't written for an audience", etc.)

Good luck with that. You'll be a while.

Have a quick re-read of the original post, though, before launching in with stuff that isn't incontrovertible. One of the things you won't be launching in with will be "Ah, the hoaxer got it completely wrong, Maybrick's brother only wrote music". That one was offered up many a time before it was nailed by research.

Here's an idea - mention 'Poste House', or 'tin matchbox, empty', or the Crawshaw poem being found by Barrett, or Barrett's brilliantly asinine confession (and his next one and the one after that all interspersed with retractions), et cetera.

Not an incontrovertible fact amongst them.

As I say, you'll be a while ...

You'd do better to show a little love for those men in the white coats, when they finally come knocking on your door ! Best to stay on the right side of them. Yes I do realise that Simon was the man in question, I read that some time back. Most of us took that as tongue in cheek though, however,you should be eternally grateful.

Absolutely, very reassuring, there's not much going on around here of late.

I do realise that the above is your attempt at some form of jollity, but, as ever not very sound reasoning, it's bleedin freezing where I am at the moment, I need all the wool I can muster.

A hypothesis I am beginning to share.
