We are British after all !!
Wow.. I was the only one standing up for him for a long time (and I'm an American!! go figure) But I agree... you are a good guy!!

Pffft. Put away the kid gloves. If he wants to tarnish a great artist's legacy with this cockamamie drivel, he has to be prepared for the consequences.

It reflects to your credit Jon that you show concern for someone who is coming under heavy criticism but....I have to agree with Harry. Dale has come on the forum with the attitude that he’s solved the case. He’s avoided any proper debate and come up with the old ‘you so called experts are stuck with your old ideas that you can’t accept my original thinking etc.’ I think that Dale is being less than honest. I accept though that simply ‘piling on’ serves no purpose so I won’t comment again unless Dale suddenly decides that he really does need to show how Van Gogh committed the Whitechapel Murders from Arles

It's interesting that Vincent Van Gogh was in Arles during November 1888, in the company of Paul Gaugin. However, the two painters might have been giving each other alibis, and Gaugin was in fact George Hutchinson, on the look-out whilst Vinnie was doing the business in Room 13. He legs it back to Arles whilst Gaugin stalls for time and gives the gullible Abberline a load of malarkey about a blinged Jew [whoops, sorry, a man of foreign appearance]. His job done, Gaugin returns to the Yellow House in Arles, where Van Gogh paints Falling Autumn Leaves, an obvious reference to the string of bodies he's left behind in Whitechapel.

I have a vision of Vincent standing before the celestial judge.

When the heavenly voice booms out " Who is Jack the Ripper?"

Vincent steps forward and says "I am Jack the Ripper".

A slight pause, and then Kosminski steps forward and says " No, I am Jack the Ripper".

Fruity steps forward and says, "I am Jack the Ripper".

Blotchy steps forward and says " I am Jack the Ripper".

And on, and on, and on.........

I wish that we could blame the murders on the person who invented predictive bloody text!
