Some great new tributes today from:
David Rodigan and Dennis Bovell (Guardian)
And a bit more information about Smiley’s last hours.
The Sun has conjured up an anonymous “source” who stated:
“While the Old Bill were sitting waiting for their cuppa he took a carving knife and stabbed himself right in the heart with it.”
This raises many more questions than it answers. I’m not a fan of Lee Jasper, by any means – but he was asking some of the right questions on his blog this morning.
A press conference has been arranged for tomorrow to highlight some of the concerns about Smiley’s death.
In the meantime I’m going to try and upload some old articles about him so we can remember the man in his prime.
