    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.

    Ike
    Not in so many words, Ike. My BRiAn hurts.

    But I would say this: with Mike being a full-time househusband, local loco Coco, semi-literate scally, walking whisky distillery and purveyor of the tallest tales known to mankind, Anne would have had to be clinically insane to ever think of embarking on such an enterprise with him, unless one of her multiple personalities had the balls of Eddie the Eagle Edwards.

    For me, it's Shoeburyness all day long.

    Way beyond Barking.

    Love,

    Caz

    Just wanted to add. If your sole ambition when going to a solicitor, and submitting a legal oath of an affidavit, is designed to make a statement of truth, then why has none of the elements within the statement ever been backed up with hard evidence? Confess properly - give us the actual source materials for how each page was constructed and what measures you took to jump over many, many lasers - we are intrigued. Show us the receipts of the books, pens, inks and materials. Show us the magic dear wizard. Surely that’s its purpose, but yet we are and where we have always been, bereft of hard evidence.
    In that same sworn affidavit, erobitha, Mike claimed he had wanted to expose the diary as a fraud as early as December 1993. He failed miserably to achieve this six months later in June 1994, so then came the affidavit seven months later in January 1995. He then had another 21 years to prove his affidavit had been truthful. So who was preventing him from ever doing so? If he didn't want to prove it for fear of getting nicked for fraud, who was forcing him to swear that affidavit in the first place? Who was forcing him to say anything at all, when he went to Harold Brough with his 'hold the front page' story in June 1994?

    I wonder what was happening in December 1993, that made Mike want to expose his own hoaxed diary as a fraud? This was just two months after co-authoring the first diary book with Shirley Harrison, when it was in The Times best seller list.

    Make any sense to you?

    No, nor me.

    But here in DAiry World, even the most arrant nonsense can appear to make sense to the Bongo Believers if they shut their eyes and ears and just believe hard enough.

    Love,

    Caz

    Oh, and we may need a bit of humble pie - just in case.
    Now that's my kind of church!

    As far as the celebration kit goes, Ven, I strongly suspect Lord Orsam will be coming in his birthday suit. More than once.

    And I will be staying attractively in a darkened room in case I frighten the Observers.

    I wouldn't mind Observer's funny little barb, but it's not as if I'm here to enter a beauty contest. This is a public place where we communicate our thoughts, opinions and arguments in writing, with the subject matter being a 63-page piece of handwritten work by an as yet unidentified individual. If that person had been identified, none of us would be insane enough to remain here.

    And yet we get posters here like Observer, who can't even see the irony of their own pseudonym, but gaily carry on seeing but not observing.

    Horses for courses.

    But Lord O's Big Sexy Truest Ever Reveal is fine for starters.

    By the way, I very nearly was single again just now, Ven. The master of Brown Towers has a new job working from home and took a power nap during his lunch break, asking me to wake him at 2pm. I was just in the nick of time.

    Love,

    Hilarious, Gary. I'll get the sprouts on now, so they will be boiled to buggery like the LOBSTER come Saturday.

    So are you suggesting that a forger was incapable of randomly guessing more or less precisely the Maybrick signature found in his marriage certificate, Caz?
    Not at all, Ike. If Lord Orsam and his Siamese twin the Baron can argue with straight faces and twirling moustaches that Anne Graham could have multiple personality disorder, to explain why the diary handwriting looks no more like hers than it does JM's, then I think I'm entitled to argue that Robbie Johnson may have had the gift of 'tuning in' to the deceased, to discern how Jim formed his signature on the marriage licence - also known as a marriage allegation I believe, for those who needed to get hitched in a hurry and avoid all the faff. Didn't young Bobo arrive eight months later? The certificate would presumably have come after the ceremony, when the newlyweds were about to tuck into their wedding breakies of LOBSTER and bubbly. I can hear Robbie now, with his Cherry Ripe from Night of the Demon, as he prepares to let Sir Jim take over control of his etching tool.

    The irony is never far from the surface, is it? Everyone [including me] pooh-poohed Anna Koren's analysis that the diary author had the same mulitiple personality disorder which Anne Graham is now alleged to suffer from.

    Is it a mere coincidence that the same people who have fallen hook, line and sinker for Bongo Barrett's nonsense are also likely to fall hook, line and sinker for LOBSTER?

    And yet it's what Mr Murphy is down on the record as saying.

    What's pointless is you trying to erase that record without so much as a smidgen of jeweller's rouge. But do keep trying anyway.
