For British readers in particular - but for everyone really

 Listen to this please: James O'Brien Full Disclosure: Nick Wallis  

If the link doesn't work for you (it's Apple because we are Mac users here in this house), then look on your podcasts app and find James O'Brien Full Disclosure: Nick Wallis; Exposing the Post Office scandal. It's the latest interview on Full Disclosure.

And if you haven't already watched it, get on to ITVx and watch the 4 part drama series about it.

Marilyn we have been following it, absolutely scandelous and ruined many peoples lives and businesses. I don't think there is a way of ever putting all the wrong doings right. It's a great shame that many folks who are in charge think nothing of lying these days!

Hi Ann,
It is scandalous indeed.

It is shocking but not surprising, unfortunately, that people in positions of power are more prepared to lie than accept responsibility for their actions - and think nothing of the people whose lives they are ruining.

As the saying goes "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." That certainly was/is the case for the Post Office senior executives, the PO prosecution structure and Fujitsu's management.

These kinds of abuses of power are why I am such a cynic about politicians...

Marilyn, you might like Nick's Radio 4 series (the first ones were in 2020, which shows you how long he's been on this story) which is on BBC Sounds:

There was also a Panorama about it several years ago which has recently been reshown, and is on iPlayer, if you're able to get that down there.

Thanks, Adam,

I will hunt them down. In the FD interview, he and James O'B talked about the Panorama programme.

It is truly dreadful - in the actual meaning of that word. It must have the British public wondering which institutions can be trusted.
