I was tipped-off this morning by a friend in Jersey that a new BBC radio program, ‘Taking a Stand’, was featuring Lenny Harper as a guest. According to the BBC site, “Fergal Keane talks to people who have taken risks and made sacrifices to stand up for what they believe in.”
The 28-minute interview can be listened to here.
I was not surprised, but still taken aback that the host apparently has bought into the crap that Walker, Lewis, Warcup and Gradwell have spewed about the investigation – the bones are too old, the shackles were gutter ties, the “skull” fragment was coconut, the milk teeth - WITH ROOTS ATTACHED - could have been tooth extractions that occurred at the former children's home.
Lenny faired well during the interview and brought out some interesting points – none of which were very complimentary to the government.
Harper is to give evidence to the High Court in the UK next month regarding the obstruction and interference in the investigation by Jersey politicians.
Thanks Mark for the heads-up!
