Up the Injunction
Thompson & Venables, cont.More musings and monitorings of the Thompson sightings saga.
No surprises: folks are waking to the possibility of Denise Fergus' inspired sleuthing inspiring others to posse up while Thompson's scent is still warm and the press hounds in full grubby-mac'd cry.
The 'Herald' captures the mood - and I like Denise's chilling reference to "podgy face and evil eyes". I know a number of bounders who fit that description; I trust we're not in for a witch-hunt of Billy Bunters.
SACROSANCT: dead on cue, the original 'Tec reminds us of "that" injunction. It's there to protect the killers' identity, and it's still very much in place.
The Good, The Bad, and the Kitsch: I'm asked why I don't also catalog the superest of the soppy sites on the late Bulger?
Well, it would be patronising and in questionable taste ... besides, who am I to pronounce when my own writings plumb new depths of verbal kitsch with every entry?
But the honest query did set me thinking of a site I came across yonks back whose sincerity blazed brighter than the others.
The emotional force behind it is a young lady called Jessica - no longer so young, I dare say - and it included two time-saving links:
- Information on the guilty duo.
- Miscellaneous handy links
- Dept of Duhh ~ and what about *this* for plain missing the whole point? Bulger père thinks there's no threat from his son's killers.
Of course there isn't, you ninny ... the lads have grown up and seen the error of their ways and are probably terrified out of their minds at what Fleet Street and assorted loony vigilantes might have planned for them. The ones to fear are the murderous *adults* who don't give a hoot about the facts of the case or any injunction. All they know is that a chance might be coming up to act on their most despicable instincts under the all-excusable banner of righteous indignation. Very English, that. We're good on righteous indignation.
