    Hi,

    Thanks for starting this interesting poll. Being the first one to post kind of gives away who I voted for.

    Your friend, Brad

      Meaningless

      But this is a Labour party type of poll. One with no real choices. "Who do you think made the greatest Prime Minister Tony Blair or Gordon Brown?"

      You should have included a real choice such as "Unknown" and "Fictional character" to be meaningful.

        This is very interesting..

        I agree that you really need an option for GH to have invented Mr A. I haven't voted as I think that may be so. Tumblety's an interesting theory though. Jane x

          Hi.
          As far as i am concerned there are two possibilties, when it comes to Hutchinsons statement.
          1] It was given in good faith, and to the best of his ability.
          2] A statement was given , but fabricated by the police to some extent,in order not to prevent capture.
          I have no doubt, at least in my mind, that it was the first of those options, and GH did infact see someone of that description accost Mary Kelly.
          I can well understand that members of Casebook have reason to doubt such a detailed story, but we do have Regs character reference of his father, describing him as ' A man of detail, and 'If he said he saw that, he saw it', so that would explain such a detailed description, or at least add credence to it.
          So out of the list avaliable , i would have to side with The Duke of Clarence, or one not mentioned Lord R, Churchill, but i should add not literally, just resembling, as of course Topping was saying.
          Something like Mrs Coxs neice was allegedly told by her aunt ie, 'A real toff, he was, a fine gentleman'
          So what happened to Blotchy?
          That is another mystery, on another thread mayby?
          Regards Richard.

            Hi Roy

            I think Janes correct, one thing is crystal crystal clear to me, GH invented Mr A, or at least he invented the apparel he wore, I'd vote for an unknown local individual seen with Mary Kelly who was dressed more in line with the local working class population.

            all the best

              A man of detail, and 'If he said he saw that, he saw it',
              He also said that he acquired those skills on the job in the plumbing trade, but the "witness" from 1888 was a "groom by trade, now working as a labourer". I'm afraid that character reference is worthless for that reason, and others.

                You forgot to add Lord Randolph Churchill. Just kidding!

                  I'd have voted for him!

                    Quite so, Bob. Then I would have voted 'Unknown (local)' or preferably 'Local nondescript'.

                      ... where does that leave "he saw nobody", or - my favoured option - "he wasn't even there"?

                        I think Hutch saw Mary with Packer.

                          Well, as you'll expect, they aren't my favoured options, Gareth, but I don't know where they are left. (Unjustly) swept under the carpet perhaps?...

                            Hi Bob,

                            Labour party? Over here the gals call that a baby shower.
                            Mr. Unknown has won all the polls on the site. Giving some of the others a chance. Now fictional character, that's a different egg, and may require another vote.
