AND this was original and edited versions of my letter to, and published by, Private Eye following a further false article about me. (Note: three articles, three failures to seek comment in advance.) Anyone might think that Private Eye has an agenda. 3/3

Private Eye also failed to publish a letter from me correcting its first article with false claims about me, having failed to seek comment. I have re-produced letter below. Part of it concerned ‘Nick’, which I have redacted because of risk of prejudicing forthcoming trial: 2/3

I am told that Private Eye has failed to publish my letter despite its being fundamentally wrong in its article about me in the previous issue, and having failed even to ask me for a response before running it. My letter is in tweet below: 1/3

PIE Wanted Acceptance: The Elite Still Use Euphemisms On Child Abuse For The Same Reason Language is powerful. It changes minds. Child abuse is never consensual. It often combines physical, emotional and psychological abuse. It is never 'plain vanilla' or some 'malarkey'

Only just heard dreadful news that Lyra McKee was shot dead in Derry on Thurs while covering riots. Appalling crime. Her final tweet that day had pic of armoured police vehicles near scene, captioned simply: “Derry tonight. Absolute madness.”

I did think that the wording in the IOPC update to betrayed something very wrong at that organisation. I quoted it, but felt very queasy about it. And yet, it is so telling. IOPC just does not get it, does it...

A very predictable establishment distraction technique. Surely it cannot be allowed to be successful.... There is so much more to this.

Good morning all, we are already aware of the stalker's release on licence and of the new posts republishing those same lies about us. Whoever's doing that, now faces criminal/legal action. Ends 🎗️

So, Brian, what was wrong with Ian Hislop's reply to you? It looks reasonable on its face.

Meanwhile, IOPC has opened NEW investigative strand after it appeared that a serving police officer had doctored Leicestershire Police documents re Lord Janner, which would be a criminal offence. Or as IOPC puts it: “Police documents may have been inappropriately modified.”

IOPC “concerned” that police failed to investigate allegs in 1990-1 that Greville Janner MP had “sexual relationship” with a child, and later claims by ex-residents of children’s homes. Its probe continues. So has delayed prelim hearing re Lord Janner to Sept 24.

In the circumstances, Mike, I think that it is quite proper for to delay the prelim hearing to await the outcome of the IOPC investigation re the late Greville Janner MP.
