Yes I think that is what he is implying.

The seller, Clapp, would have noticed the missing labels when he was shown the trousers and waistcoat in court.

Here. On this forum? she certainly is the one on trial! As far as I'm concerned. She sent an innocent man to meet his maker,
Two so called witnesses, of 'Hanratty turning into a Redbridge street,' were rubbished by their workmates. Storie sent Hanratty to his death on a Whim!
Her ID drawing looked nothing like him. Her first choice pick out, Mike Clark, looked nothing like him, His east end London accent sounded similar to about 1,000,000 other London adult males.
Moral case? of course its a moral case,
My opinion is that Storie was heavily influenced by Acott. There was no reason why she couldn't simply continue with her belief that the memory of the perpetrator, was vague, and that she was unlikely to pick him out.
The police would have been back to square one, and that was very much not in their interest!
I have much sympathy for anyone who suffers her kind of injuries, and I'm sure coping for the rest of her life as she evidently did, speaks volumes for her grit and determination,
but I didn't believe her when she said, 'of course Hanratty was guilty, I was there'. So no, As far as the A6 murder is concerned, I don't have anything nice to say about her, and I wont be taking your advice of saying nothing at all.
