"Our aim was quite simple....Who encouraged the bombers? Who supported them? Who helped them?"he went on to explain that their investigations involved some 19,000 leads and more than 15,000 statements being taken.
Which is curious, as letters addressed to
Peter Clarke CVO QPM LL.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner
New Scotland Yard
There is not a shred of evidence that the Met have made the slightest attempt to interview or seek the assistance of any of the industrious, 7/7 researchers, who have assembled a large body of knowledge about the event.
With no thanks or even reference to the work and doggedness of Bridget Dunne John Reid did finally acept that the Police accounts that the bombers left Luton on a train that didn't exist were wrong (Full details here at J7 Truth website). Which were explained by the Police that the information that was used in the "Timeline" came from ...The Home Office, which when last checked the Met were still part of. (Although that is due for a change).
John Reids acceptance of the revised (7.25 not 7.40 ) departure time(BBC story**) is however no explanation how the famous picture of the 4 "bombers" entering Luton Station, three minutes earlier , bought their tickets and caught the train, nor how they arrrived in London too late to catch the trains that were bombed.
Plod needs help. Please write to him.
** According to the BBC story "Mr Reid said the discrepancy came to light at the end of last week, when police pointed out the inaccuracy." although of course the blogosphere had been full of the detailed information derived from public sources.
**** Dear old Peter did once show us his lunch bucket however - presumably to show his mum he had gobbled it all up. Love his range of ties... and that knot !
