As Whitehead was a Liberal, a Radical and a philanthropist he probably mentioned the contrast between the way Mary and her fellow tenants lived and the costly show of the Lord Mayor's Show when he spoke to the Press. He did participate in that show, mind you, but he cut down on a lot of its sideshow atmosphere.

No. What did he say.

No, the sitting Lord Mayor was De Keyser.

One month before the murderer of Kelly there was an interview with De Keyser in the press, where he stated that the assasin was "undoubtedly mad" and that it "would not be surprising if he should soon commit suicide".

(See for instance The Freeman´s Journal, October 9, 1888, p. 5)

Hello Karl. Perhaps those dots are merely fly defecations?

Cheers.

That at least would be giving substance to one of Pierre's threads.

The man said Jack was mad, no wonder Jack got angry.

The killer could have gotten angry at a lot of other people stating in the press that he was mad.

But he wasn´t.

He was angry at the Lord Mayor.
