    I get it now. You’re the surly, angry character on the boards. Well I would be very interested to know the suspected forger you think is responsible since the man who confessed isn’t on your list.

    So why ask?

    Two things:

    1) Bizarre coincidence. Your cat is called Monty. My car is called Monty (no word of a lie).
    2) Do you think James Maybrick would have passed the Premier League's Fit and Proper Person's Test to own Newcastle United? I only ask because I'm starting to give up hope on the Saudi prince thing and sort of casting around for other potential owners. I'd rather have a dead serial killer than My Cashley.

    Cheers,

    Ike
    Ah, but does your Monty talk to you in your dreams, or just go honk, vroom?

    My Monty regularly talks to me in my dreams and is a natural comedian. I wake up laughing every time at what he comes out with.

    We returned from holiday in one dream, and Monty said in a Welsh accent: "Ah, so you're back then, are you?"

    Another time I tried to stop him jumping from a high window, but he took no notice and went for it. Fearing the worst, I looked down and he was picking himself up, saying: "Phew, that was a close one!"

    More recently someone wanted to know if Monty could type, and he piped up: "Yes, I can type."

    [This is all to distract Ike from my total inability to answer his question related to the Toon Army. Don't tell Ike.]

    Love,

    Caz

    You would actually lock someone up and throw away the key on Bongo's say-so - Bongo the Biggest Liar in the World - presumably because you don't care who actually wrote it?

    The real Columbo would be scratching his head in despair.

    Or EARLY 1888?

    Just putting it out there. I still have three days left of doing so ...

    You asked who I thought wrote the diary, Harry D.

    The above is not even a question.

    But if you're now asking me when I think the diary was written, I'll give you the answer I've given many, many, many, many times before.

    I DON'T KNOW WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN.

    NOBODY KNOWS. SOME ONLY THINK THEY KNOW.


    I DON'T ACCEPT THE LUDICROUS ARGUMENT THAT IT WAS WRITTEN AS LATE AS APRIL 1992.

    FOR ALL I KNOW, GIVEN THE UNIDENTIFIED HANDWRITING AND THE INCONSISTENT AND INCONCLUSIVE SCIENTIFIC RESULTS, PEN COULD HAVE BEEN PUT TO PAPER AT ANY TIME BETWEEN LATE 1889 AND 8TH MARCH 1992, THE DAY BEFORE I BELIEVE BONGO SAW IT FOR THE FIRST TIME.

    I DON'T KNOW WHO WROTE IT.

    NOBODY KNOWS.

    IF THEY DID WE WOULDN'T STILL BE HERE - NOW WOULD WE?


    Good grief, how hard can this be, people???

    If The Baron has cracked it and will be identifying the diary's handwriting in three days from now, I will be full of admiration and looking forward to reading more of those unread books on the shelf, finally sort out the mess of old family photos and what have you currently under the bed, and even start a new hobby. Lobster extraction is looking like a definite possibility.

    Love,

    Very good, Caz (I wondered where you were going with that one until I realised that you were going 'Way beyond Barking')!

    Now, the challenge is to make 'Way beyond Barking' a euphemism for something ...

    Hmmm.

    PS I do hope you don't mind my asking you all of these questions but you are - it seems to me - seen by many (e.g., Observer) on this site as some kind of Maybrick apologist/aficionado, and I always thought that was just me (historically) and now me, erobitha, and Aussie Ven. Did you not once write an entire book lauding Maybrick to the high heavens more or less saying "He's your man, Iconoclast was right all along, praise the Lord, pass the lobster, it's game over for the Ripperologists?". Well, I'm sorry to tell you but apparently it was all some kind of hoax thing created by any simian other than the one that was once James Maybrick, possibly a Scouser, possibly dripping piss from his trouser legs, probably saying "... and what have you and what have you, no-one understand me, I wrote the diary, of course I didn't write the diary, this is how I wrote it, it was Anne what wrote it, in Tony D's handwriting, why's the money dried up all of a sudden and what have you and I emphasise that ...". It seems that confirmation of all this is coming our way this Saturday, served up on a plate for us all by some character called Lord Boresome and what have you. Just letting you know in case the loss of Maybrick as a candidate for Jack really will bother you that much. Listen, try to bear it. You can always shift your allegiance to Robert Louis Stevenson who I definitely think was the killer because he was alive in 1888.
    Morning Mr I,

    I feel like Piggy in the middle [something for Observer to sink his teeth into there, although my crackling is tough as old boots these days].

    You feel Sir Jim makes the best ripper suspect.

    Keith feels Monty makes the best ripper suspect. [Just as ridiculous. Monty is my cat and swears he isn't old enough. I believe him.]

    I feel all ripper suspects lack the proper substance.

    When Mike's DAiry goes to its final resting place on LOBSTER Day, I'll raise a glass or three of fizz to it, for all the wonderful friendships I've made because of it, and best of all, for the love of my life, working diligently in his home office down the hall as I type, who came to his first meeting of the Whitechapel Society in August 2010 and swept me clean off my feet. My only quibble is that he is currently beating me at Scrabble. Unlike Bongo Barrett, who was the guest interviewee at my first meeting in April 1999, and did a star turn at living down to my expectations.

    Love,

    Caz

    How is Caz supposed to know the answer to that?

    How are any of us supposed to know the answer to that (if it wasn't James Maybrick)?

    It is not for Caz or anyone else to answer that question for you.

    If she ventured something more than simply opinion, I for one would be demanding to know how on earth she could have known it.

    In the post-lobster new normal here on the Casebook, the debate will grow ever more intense. Without Maybrick as possible author, and the sane amongst us knowing that it wasn't Bongo or any of his intimates, the struggle to understand who created this mesmerising document will fill many a screen for many a year.

    Or else, of course, we'll all just off and do something more valuable and productive with our lives ...

    Words fail me - almost.
