For a long time I wondered where this story came from. And then I got the answer from David Jordan in the Pollard report
Back to the who's who in the 'victim' 'witness' because, whoever was 'fed up' with Mei appears to have gotten a tad mixed up. Understandable in the circumstances, because the second person willing to go on camera as far as I've been able to establish is Rochelle Shepherd (R3).
Let's look at the wording of fed up shall we ?
Because, whoever fed up was, he/she apparently only learned of Ms 2nd 'interview' only very recently !
Let's look again at these 'rough' scripts shall we ? Because, I for one want to know whether Rippon really had seen a video that contained this mysterious second interviewee. She (R3) whom the Mail have identified as Rochelle Shepherd, is certainly mentioned in Liz MacKean's evidence.
On 28th Nov 2012, she sent HER envisaged 'script' to Meirion Jones that includes what R3 will say
The 28th November is a Monday and that must be when they'd filmed the 'second VICTIM' according to the email Jones sent to Rippon on the 25th (Friday)
The problem for Jones being that NO SECOND 'victim' was filmed. This from Liz MacKean's evidence
To which Rippon replied
It's patently obvious that Mitchell has at this point no idea that the headmistress is Jones' aunt. Pollard questioned him about these emails
Mitchell was not sent any of the 'scripts' made by Jones or MacKean
And, the last one that appeared to be seen by Peter Rippon was on 29th November. It does NOT include any testimony from any second 'victim' or witness for that matter. But of course, she has NOT been interviewed on camera yet
The point is, did Rippon ever see the finished video ? Did anyone ? Where is it ? Why didn't Jones advise 'senior managers' about his unhappiness about Rippon's decision to pull transmission ?
To be continued ! BUT guys and gals, let me leave you with another gem that I picked up in my burrowing. Meirion, you really are an idiot aren't you !
I don't suppose he has a new job yet does he ?
