Could it be mocking Abberline because he had been out looking for a Lipski character and while they found a few they eventually concluded it was a racial slur?

Hi Batman

I don’t read the racial slur aspect in this particular comment.

I guess what I am saying is, if there was a joke about the search for Lipski, which wasn't a person, is being brought up here as a person. He calls Abberline, the romancer. So it seems to have some funny undertones.

I am just looking for alternative explanations to someone on the force being called Lipski, which would be astounding if true.

Maybe it was the nickname of the officer in charge of the Lipski investigation?

Abberline the romancer would be Abberline nickname?

Possibly an insult to Abberline, rather than his nickname. The second definition of romancer in the OED is "One who deals in extravagant fictions; an inventor of false history; a fantastic liar". Just the sort of insult a criminal might throw at a detective responsible for assembling a case against him.

The headline in the paper stated A Romance of Crime. I believe Selwen may be referrng to himself as the romancer.

I read it as "Regards to Lipski... and Abberline, the romancer."

It would be a nice surprise if Dorset St., PC, mysterious L.64 turned out to be PC LIPSKI 64

Anyway, I heard someone solved that mystery?

Simon Wood has 200 of them here.

In America, "chippy" is a slang term for a prostitute.

I never did get a response to "Lipski" being used as a verb as in I'll come over there and Lipski your ass. Maybe I just imagined that I read that somewhere..
