The Maxwell’s & the Met……

In a declassified document which came to light yesterday, it appears that the cosy relationship between the Maxwell media empire & the Metropolitan Police goes back at least 40 years……

1970……

Just one year after the Great Train Robbery when Ronnie Biggs was the most wanted man in Britain, whilst hiding out in Australia, a solicitor offered to sell his story to then recently acquired Maxwell newspaper, the Sun.  The documentation on offer was signed by Biggs & had a fingerprint along side.  To authenticate the documents the Sun approached the Met to have the fingerprint compared to the police records.  The request was embraced by the Met who obligingly confirmed that the fingerprint was indeed that of Ronnie Biggs.  The Sun then paid the solicitor the fee & the scoop was theirs.  They ran the story in the Sun in the UK & in the Australian Daily Mail, also owned by the Maxwells……

The Australian Police were horrified by the affair & despite their best efforts, Biggs duly escaped to South America where he continued to live as a free man, something which was denied to the murdered Guard from the train……

A Double Disgrace……

Not only were the actions of the Met questionable & quite probably illegal but the monies received by Biggs for the journalistic scoop facilitated his escape from Australia & helped him to live freely in considerable luxury……

One does have to question why this information was ‘classified’ in the first place and why no criminal prosecutions have arisen as a result.  As the CEO of the company & therefore, being ultimately responsible for it’s actions, Robert Maxwell played an active part in assisted an offender to evade prosecution.  As far as am aware there is no statute of limitations precluding the police charging Robert Maxwell now.  Something tells me that this is very unlikely to happen……

Maxwell clearly demonstrated to the Select Committee that his grasp on the actions of the senior management within his companies was removed from reality & rather than appearing apologetic, he banged is fist on the table in defiance……

The police investigation into the phone hacking affair is projected to take five years.  The public enquire will not start until that process is complete, by which time the aging Robert Maxwell will probably be dead.  GOOD……  I only hope his slimy offspring will face prosecution along with Rebekah Brooks (who conveniently only seems to remember her own name & very little else).  I’m sure the whole lot of them have blood on their hands and will walk away without facing any prosecutions and we, the British tax payers will foot the bill whilst the usual suspect will go on to a comfortable retirement……

FUCKED OVER AGAIN……
