Apparently Cyril Smith has just received an unexpected brown envelope.
As befits shy and coy 'Brand Smith', Cyril gets diddy Dave Hennigan to issue a press release and a photo with brother gormless Norm (MBE).
The bogus letter said that Cyril had won the lottery - 915,510 Euro.
In a turn of phrase, probably once used to defend his nightime visits to Cambridge House boys' hostel in the 1960's- Cyril is quoted as saying:
"I have never heard or entered such a thing".
915,510 Euro. Not the lottery?
Cash offers from strangers?
Not Paul Rowen's Council of Europe jamboree expenses?
Not old asbestos company share dividends?
Cyril Smith, the old conviction politican, 'pleads' with old folk not to be fooled with false promises and lies.
“This letter is obviously a con and I hope that no one falls for it. Nobody gets free money...".
Wise words Cyril - "Nobody gets free money" from letters.
Perhaps Cyril could properly explain his own 1982 letter when he asked T&N to write a speech for him on asbestos?
Paul Rowen has been silent on Cyril Smith MP's 1982 work in Parliament for Turner Brothers Asbestos.
However he is now gushing with concern about Cyril's bogus lottery win:
"I have forwarded this letter to the police for investigation".
