This probably deserves it`s own thread?

I don`t think the tears fooled anyone? It`s amazing how her memory has failed.

If, at the end of all of this shameful episode, she and some of her cohorts don`t get sent down, will be akin to pouring a mountain of salt into a chronic wound, for those vilified sub-postmasters and their families

If you were to believe the evidence given to this enquiry by top executives it seems that they didn`t actually know what was happening in the organisation they were supposed to be leading. So, if they were telling the truth, they weren`t up to the job but, if they were lying, they were party to the cover-up.

It makes you wonder how they managed to secure these top jobs in the first place. What are the attributes recruiters look for in candidates for these posts - relevant expertise, integrity, accountability, attention to detail, etc? No; it seems a brass neck is the main requirement.

Inquiry will follow same path as others, nobody in jail, no Executive bonuses paid back, a whitewash!

It's great that they can show screen shots of mobile messages yet the highest government intelligence services couldn't retrieve Johnsons nor Sunaks.

"I don't recall" is the trending reply, yet again.

7 years since Grenfell and still nothing, justice only applies to poor people!🤬

GCHQ will NEVER publicly reveal what they can and can`t intercept/recover, and rightly so.

Personally, I think they probably could have recovered the missing WhatsApps - but proving that capability to aid the Covid enquiry would probably compromise every single other intelligence operation they are running. That trade off isn`t worth it.

Sunak and Johnson knew this when the decide to claim that the WhatsApps were lost.

You have to commend the sub-postmasters that are present in the room. I`m certain I wouldn`t have been able to control my emotions.

"I don`t recall"
"Not to my knowledge"
"That was my understanding"
"I wasn`t involved in that decision"

I wonder how many times these four phrases will be used?

It was also telling how often she agreed with the interpretation Jason Beer KC was putting on her messages but claimed that wasn`t the impression she meant to give at the time. That`s a stunning admission of an inability to express oneself clearly from somebody in such a key position where good communication skills would be essential.

Yeah, but Viceroy Jack didn`t even comply!

Covid enquiry news has gone strangely quiet, especially now when the top civil servant is giving evidence.

The guy that pulled a sicky on the first hearing!

"I wanted Vennells to be dragged away in handcuffs like I was. She should be in handcuffs. Then she will have only an inkling of what I and so many have been through. We will be affected for the rest of our lives - she and the others should also have the same sentence. They are the real criminals - She is the real criminal."


Campaigner and former subpostmistress Seema Misra, 48, has been fighting for justice alongside Alan Bates.

Seema became a sub-postmistress in West Byfleet in Surrey in June 2005 and was suspended in January 2008 after an audit found a discrepancy of £74,000 in her accounts. She endured a two-year-long investigation that included having her house searched. She was eight weeks pregnant with her second child when she was handed a 15-month sentence in 2010 for six counts of false accounting and one of theft. The 48-year-old mother-of-two even had to give birth wearing a tag.
