Gen Sir Michael Wilcocks
I see it, in the eyes of the PCC all content still live on the www originally
published by the Guardian and which has been copied by others is 'accurate'
not 'misleading' or 'distorted'. When Jon Robins discussed his comments
with Desmond Hudson both were in no doubt, it would appear, the website
being discussed was my .com website so I will shortly be writing
to Desmond Hudson for his comments on his false allegations voiced to
Jon Robins against me. Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, has been very
vocal of the PCC of late I will also be sending him the contents of
this letter for his comments and remind him of Desmond Hudson's other
comment "fair criticism" is "entirely
valid" and that the need for clients to be able to give feedback
is "extremely important" also let
me quote Mark Manley, Deputy District Judge "...the intention
- a consumer-based website to enable members of the public to make legitimate
statements about service - is good" (Jon
My little story of the "Red-light Jumper" funny you jumped straight to "...the Commission and editors are linked in any "lodge-like" fashion". If like me you are a sports fan mostly the Spanish La-Liga and the English Premier League you would have noticed recent media headlines "Wayne Rooney's father and uncle arrested over game fixing scam". However I suppose like myself in the 60's as a young man you liked the 'Pop' scene I'm sure you would remember Sandy Shaw's 1967 Eurovision song winning entry.
These days I have more of a 'Country' leaning towards Kenny Rogers type music, like 'Coward of the County' as the story goes "sometimes you got to fight when you're a man". . I wonder what Kenny Rogers song would be in your 'Must have List' Odds-on it would be the 'Gambler'.
Who do you see when you look in the mirror is it a 'man' or some 'big' girls blouse? With a CV like yours you start to believe you are always right and all 'subordinates' are wrong and have no right to complain of their treatment, probably a legacy from your army career. "He's efficient, he's a straight guy, he's got a sense of humour," said a Labour life peer.
As your original letter dated 10 August was lost in the post and never found, also ten of my emails were not apparently received despite the 'automated' replies I was sent, I will send this letter by recorded delivery.
