Unbelievable News…

When Lionel e-mailed me last week, I replied asking him to try and check out whether the hunt for me in the UK is officially over. I figured that, being in Canada, he could “play the daft laddie”, as they call “being disingenuous” in Glasgow, and pretend he knew I’d been connected with this computer crime and was trying to contact me. He e-mailed a colleague at London University, who spoke to another colleague who has a PhD mature student who once was a policeman and still has contacts in Scotland Yard. As Lionel says:

The upshot of it, old friend, is that 
they have not only lost interest in you,
they have lost interest in the case 
altogether, and no-one is being sought 
in connection with it. Hercule Poirot, 
Lord Peter Whimsey, and Sherlock 
Holmes have been reassigned to more
important work, searching for the brains 
behind X-Factor, if any.

What a relief. I can’t tell you. I was forthwith encouraged to apply for a replacement passport. Though I had doubted whether they would have actually connected me with their missing witness, I now feel safe. Strangely, though, having been pining for England when I couldn’t go there, now it’s October, I think I’ll stick around here for a while.

Oh, and if you’re listening, fauxhunter, I’m not going to spoil your fun by revealing my whereabouts in this blog! Keep guessing, turkey!
