  1. Slightly less unbelievable if the actual rapist was a relative of Lord McAlpine, as has been implied, and there was a strong family resemblance. Not good at all, but not completely incredible.

    Also, this was Wales in the 1980s: everyone hates the Tories with a reflexive passionate loathing. It’s something they learn at their mothers’s breasts. In fact this is very much still the case (along with hating not just Conservatives but also the English, anyone from Eastern Europe, and anyone who isn’t white). Lord McAlpine may have been fingered precisely because of who he was. Something similar also explains the BBC’s eagerness to pursue the story as unthinkingly as they did.

  2. I spent two years living in Cymru and Welsh people do not, in fact, hate the English uniformly, let alone anyone who isn’t white.

    Your attempt to smear an entire nation as racists is, in fact, racist.

    • So very True Hugh – and as usual a far more critical analysis of errors is still not in the public domain. What A Surprise (Irony). P^/

      Only 2 years? I have been dealing with the Issues in and around Wales for over 40 years – and I find the false racism caused by negligent ignorance more than racist – it’s crass racism caused by less than ignorance.
