From what I've gathered from this piece so far, I believe that is a correct assumption. He seems to be particularly confused about how Monro's role has been depicted by other policemen such as Thompson--inferring that Warren had basically been removed from the equation. And he makes a big deal about every other policeman but Warren opining on who the murderer was. Actually, Warren did at the time of the murders in the official files. As an aside, I don't recall Monro ever doing so.

The only inference we have about Monro is that he left some papers with his eldest son Charles which characterized the identity of Jack the Ripper as "a very hot potato".

I don't think it was really.

Warrens reason for the writing removal are valid from a policing aspect, no reason to push for his resignation on that point.

Yep, Robinsons reasoning doesn't weigh up, and smacks of either shoddy research or plain a-speculatin'.

Probably I should have said that Ed's is at least an arguable position, which I don't think Robinson's is.

Robinson has a slight point in highlighting that Warren had made other press comments and the Murray article was advertised well in advance. I think the Murray article was an excuse to get rid of him. The straw that broke the camels back.
As in all his theorising, Robinson then draws ludicrous conclusions.

Bump Up

Was the resignation one part Whitechapel Murder failure to-a- solution & one part Murray's Magazine article and any/all other newspaper reports emanating from Warren ?

Your thoughts..........
