John Steinbeck – “Power does not corrupt. Fear corrupts…perhaps the fear of a loss of power.”
Welcome to the BaldPolitiKs, where we look at the world of politics from an other angle and give a voice to the unheard. This is the 23 August 2017 where the world focus is on the UK & in particular the 1987 murder of private investigator Daniel Morgan.
The phone hacking scandal that closed News of the World was big, but just the tip of the iceberg. At the bottom of the iceberg of ‘dark arts’ – hacking, burglary, bugging, & bribing bent cops – is the body of Daniel Morgan. It’s been described by an Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police as “one of the most disgraceful episodes in the entire history of the Metropolitan Police Service.” Over the 3 decades since Daniel was killed, 5 failed police investigations & an ongoing panel inquiry; his has become the most investigated murder in British history. Author & Journalist Peter Jukes, from untoldmurder.com joins us to tell more about this brutal & fascinating murder. But before we get to that let’s have a look at some significant happenings on this day the 23 August.
