Well, you know what they say? "There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact!"

I'm starting to think that Lord Orsam is even more perspicacious than first suspected.

10,400 views since we hit the million the other day. Most threads would die for that alone over their lifetime and still get nowhere near!

And they say it isn't The Greatest Thread of All!

I say nay, sir - 'tis indeed the very cheeky wee dab!

You've got a bit of a way to go before you overtake the A6 Thread at something over 1,180,000 views. But of course we on the A6 deal with facts, not common or garden speculation.............................

Will they ever learn the error of their ways?

I'm sure Mitchel and Soothsayer are/were the same person....He got reprimanded and accused of being a sock puppet by admin if my memory serves me well.

Hope he is well.

Hi all,
Been away from here for a while, but still kept an eye on things.
I'm still not convinced Maybrick was JTR, however I still have not seen or heard anything to prove he wasn't.

A few years back, a prominent JTR historian and author categorically stated he knew that the diary was a forgery, and exactly who was behind it.
In fact he was very angry about it because he felt it held back and hindered real research on the subject.
Well in that case he could of ended this debate there and then.....still waiting!

regards.

Excellent - the Battle of the Threads!

On the facts vs common or garden speculation issue I do think it is relevant that we aren't actually talking about the same case here.

The A6 case vs, say, the death of Diana would undoubtedly give the latter a good run for its money on speculation but could not possibly compete on fact.

I think you should compare apples with apples, young man, or at least acknowledge that we inevitably know more about your apples than we do about my pears.

And tell your mates to get rid of those banners whilst you're at it ...

I imagine he is still at the very top of his game, SpyG.

I wouldn't set your watch by the accuracy of such routine claims from the naysaying classes, SpyG. The journal is the real deal. I think a quarter of a century chimes quite nicely as we reflect back with a cup of tea and a biscuit on the knowledge that James Maybrick rather obviously was Jack the Spratt McVitie.
