Well, you’ve got to hand it to Martin Walkerdine. In his pursuit of the truth it appears he’ll go to any lengths.
I’ll just note that this reply from Colin Peters corroborates the information I already had regarding the long suggested idea that Colin Peters had visited Elm Guest House.
Hello Martin Walkerdine
(Whoever you may be)
I am aware of a report that appeared in The Independent on Sunday in the early part of last year and I DENY CATEGORICALLY that I have ever been to the guest house to which you refer or had any knowledge about the activities reported in the newspaper.
At my own request I approached the Operation Fernbridge team shortly after the story appeared and had an hour long discussion with two officers at my flat and they made it clear that in their view the Independent story connecting me with the Barnes affair was without foundation and that I was not a suspect in their enquiry.
Indeed, do you not think I would have been arrested and charged if the police considered that I was involved in the affair?
