  • Labouchere On The 1894 Sun Articles

    Pardon me if we already have this story in another article ...but I don't remember it.

    For those unfamiliar with Mr. Labouchere :

    "That man was employed in the neighbourhood of Whitechapel, and resided within a short walk from it."

    I've never understood that part in the Sun articles about Tom Cutbush.
    It's a fifty minute walk from Albert Street, Newington to Gardiners Corner, Whitechapel.

    When I think of a short walk from Whitechapel I picture Finsbury Square. Or Bethnal Green. But perhaps Newington to Whitechapel was considered a short walk then.

      If my recollection is correct, I believe he stabbed the women in the buttocks. I like the "Don't trust your own witnesses" statement... Good legal advice... even if it was in the Star. LOL

          Thanks for the punch up, A.P.
          "Tay Pay" was a nickname for T.P. O'Connor, MP and guiding light of the London Star

          I haven't read the article in Truth about the Spanish sailor.

            It sounds a bit like the iffy promotion of suspects in our own day that makes whomever it is the perfect guy to do the crimes because they could so easily do them.

              Chris, it might help, if you were aware that Thomas Cutbush owned properties in the Whitechapel Road and Fieldgate Street in 1888.

                Quote from the Sun newspaper on the case of Thomas Cutbush:
                'I read through attentively all the proofs and suggestions of the Sun, for they interest me. The conclusion that I arrived at was that the Sun had made out a fair case for public investigation.'
                The quote is from MP Henry Labouchere.
                This is not the first time he has forced the Yard's arm in this case.
                And what he is basically saying is that he doesn't trust the police and he wants the judiciary to investigate the matter.

                And please note that the MP had been given the proofs of the Sun articles before publication. This is vital. He wanted a fight about it.

                  trivia

                  Hello All. Trivia. What was the relationship of Labouchere to Piggott and the Parnell Commission?

                  Cheers.
