(Haziq is the kid who was filmed being helped up after a beating, and then robbed by his helpers) R Grey August 11, 2011 at 11:19 am Cranmer’s blog is also running a collection. ukliberty August 11, 2011 at 12:02 pm Summat went wrong with your link, John. http://twitter.com/#!/jamiecowen john b August 11, 2011 at 1:44 pm I wrote “twiter” instead of “twitter”, for I am an oaf. Matthew August 11, 2011 at 1:45 pm But at least not a twit. Piers W August 11, 2011 at 3:22 pm Good for them! 🙂 Andrew Duffin August 11, 2011 at 3:22 pm Looks like a bandwagon. I hope it’s real. I think it is, and have plonked a bit in His Grace’s collection plate; I trust him (Cranmer), but I hope this isn’t another Craig Shergold in the making. (Anyone else around here old enough to remember that one?) john b August 11, 2011 at 3:49 pm Andrew: yup, f’sure. Cowen and BBH are both people or organisations, known under their real names, doing media interviews under their real names, who’ll really go to real jail if this is a fraud. I’ve no idea whether Cranmer’s identifiable as a real-life person or not, as I can’t stand him and avoid reading him unless his pieces are being discussed elsewhere, but it’d be a ridiculously bizarre and long-game fraud if he were to steal the money now and disappear. Scepticism is good; cynicism is excessive. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
