Let's Pretend ...
Let's pretend that Timothy Evans, hanged in 1950 for the murder of his wife and child, was actually innocent.
(Now, I know that this is asking a great deal considering what facts we now know about the case; the dishonesty of the abolitionists; the lies of Eddowes - exposed by his son in The Two Killers of Rillington Place; the mendacity of Ludovic Kennedy etc, etc.)
Now that was all 67 years ago and constantly dragged up by the do-gooders and the left and the abolitionists as 'something truly terrible and which must be regarded with absolute horror'. But, what if these people had actually been right, for once? - Then, so what?
What about the hundreds and possibly thousands of people who have died as a result of violent criminals being on the streets because of silly sentencing?
Why is it that each of those is not mourned to the same extent? - Surely, it could not be because it would undermine the beliefs of the liberal left and display their rank double standards to the whole world - could it?
