    That isn't what I was referring to.

    ...namely that this match is just another hurdle, another slightly preposterous leap that has to be negotiated by 'Druittists' in order to keep their theory active. And when you have to cross multiple high fences, to mix metaphors, you come to one which is a bridge too far.
    Which is undoubtedly why Jonothan Hainsworth neglected to share (in a very shadey manner) his claimed early discovery of this match and why he withdrew, hurt, from his proxy involvement in this discussion... points I raised early in this thread and which were picked up on by Ally Rider.
    I think you will find that on this thread my view is the same as on the Podcast.

    Druitts participation in the Blandford match, does not make it impossible for him to be in Whitechapel between 3-4 Am 31st August.
    It's does however make the argument for him harder for those arguing it.

    So that´s where they were! I was looking for them only yesterday, I feel so utterly lost without them.

    Of course you agree. You have the Lechmere goggles permanently in place. It’s only unlikely if you make it sound unlikely. There’s nothing unlikely about it at all.

    Mr Banks
    You assume wrong!

    Sorry I see Christer has provided chapter and verse.

    You assume, and you are wrong. Jon Menges did reach out to me, and I declared that I would want to do a podcast involving both me and Edward, since I think that would involve a much broader collected insight. Mr Menges did not accept that suggestion, though, as was his right. After all, it is his podcast and he makes the calls.

    With any luck, some sort of agreement may perhaps be reached in the future, but a podcast on Lechmere really should involve the person who is the top authority on the carman, and that is not me.

    Anyway, you have it wrong, making the wrong assumption.

    Personally, I found her contribution rather irritating. Perhaps you can explain why you believe otherwise, Simon. What did she add to the debate?

    A serious discussion would be good. But who would be able to present the alternative view?

    Ally Ryder?

    And then other naysayers will invariably chip in and say 'why can't you stop going on about Lechmere in an off topic manner?'
    Oh and yes, I did notice Lechmere also being referenced in the Druitt podcast, which is amusing as if one thing in 'Ripperology' is certain, Lechmere will never be separately discussed on that podcast channel.

    It seems there are two ways of doing ripperology. One is to discuss the various facts of the case, straight and honest, and the other one is to misrepresent the facts in a way that suits your own arguments.

    .
    Like stating in a book and in a documentary that Lechmere left home at 3.30 when he’d said ‘about 3.30,’ a point where a very few minutes can make the vital difference between ‘no missing minutes’ = everything in line with Lech finding the body, or ‘missing minutes’ - Lech lies about how long he was with the body.
    This point simply cannot be expressed too many times.
