There is no evidence, whatsoever, that Thompson was in the East End in 1888. This is the kind of thing we should be kicking into touch.

Thompson was certainly a weird bloke. He had a crush on one of his sister's dolls and wrote some rather disturbing poems. I suspect all was not right upstairs.

I've pre-ordered Richard's book and hope to find some real evidence that Thompson was in the PR Refuge in Nov., 1888.

Richard Patterson is a top bloke - but that won't save him from me (and others such as you no doubt Gary) ripping into him and finding errors in his theory.

Oh - unless he is admitted into the inner sanctum and given exemption from criticism.

Or the inner scrotum, as Count Arthur is wont to say.

There is no direct evidence that Thompson was in the East End. We only have what Thompson said to go on and he said he was. He said he used to walk Mile End and that he stayed at the Providence Row night refugee in Spitalsfield. Now, he either was in the East End or telling fibs. I do not know which is better when it comes to him being a suspect. An ex-medical student, who was deceptive or one who wasn't.

I think Gary was focusing on 1888 rather than the East End.

Gird your loins Richard, for a rough ride. I hope you are a bit Crocodile Dundee.

Hi Richard,

Well, if he was a liar, and had never been in the East End, he couldn't possibly have been the Ripper, so I suppose the other option is marginally better.

I'm sure there will be a lot of discussion about your book in the coming weeks/months. And I hope it will be conducted in a calm and rational way. I know you and I will do so, but there are a few hotheads out there ;-).

One thing Richard's book has in its favour is that it was published on the Isle of Dogs.
