    Although incorrectly spelt "It strikes me" is something of an east-end expression in this context, and I wonder if that's where, despite the Scottish sounding name, Gordon originated?

    All the best

    Philip Sugden in his book The Complete History of Jack the Ripper contended that Matt Packer was a highly imaginative and dishonest character, and that his witness statement was on the whole, unreliable.

    However I believe that the police at the times knew of his dishonesty and wanted to protect him from public anger if they ever found out about his dishonesty.
