Well this was unexpected.

Clerical child abuse, medical serial killing and Wikipedia coverups. Who'd have thought it.

While the seeds of every fortune cast a criminal shadow, this smacks of fake news.

At first I read he was born at 61. What a pregnancy!

I dunno, Jack. It doesn't sound credible to me.

The vanishing Wikipedia page is the easily verifiable part, and it makes me take the rest a lot more seriously.

Wikipedia part just seems to be because was not notable enough to arrant is own article. The relevant discussion can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Hubert_Brasier on the Wikipedia site. The article prior to a merger with the article on Theresa May can be found on Wikepedia's site at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Hubert_Brasier&oldid=785292662. I don't need te wayback machine for this..

I don't know the reputation or reliability of either site or author but it may be worth a look at http://barthsnotes.com/2017/06/05/conspiracy-theorist-goes-after-theresa-mays-late-father/ before reaching conclusions based on Jack's link to the Swamp.

In Jack's article, the word 'traveller' years ago didn't have the same meaning as it does nowadays. Then, it denoted a man (no women had this job) who travelled about the country as a representative of a business, carrying samples and so on. A 'business rep' I suppose.

Travellers who had no fixed abode and moved about with their families in a caravan were only ever called gypsies (I remember when they were all horse-drawn!).

The word 'pikey' existed then, but it denoted itinerant, homeless men and occasionally women who trudged from one turnpike to another and consequently from one 'Ward' to another, to qualify for 'Relief' or a handout from public funds. They had to keep moving or they'd have been arrested for vagrancy.

I am not at all sure whether this is a good idea regardless of the veracity. To bring someone's relatives, particularly dead ones who cannot defend themselves, into disrepute is an act we should not condone. The Daily Heil did it with Ed Milliband's father. It was wrong then and it is now. Hopefully this will fade into obscurity as quickly as that did. I shall do no more to propagate it and urge others to do the same.

The article had all the hallmarks of that other concept that goes "damning with faint praise".

I see nothing wrong in learning about the family background of any politician or anyone it could partly explain why they are the way they are.
foe example, Peter Bellamys bckground and his fathers political views would have had an affect on him.
The background of a persons parent should not be used to condemn the son or daughter, but more, to understand why possibly they are the way they are.
Thersa May, imo seems to be insecure and vacillating, could that partly be a result of her family background?

Sandman, I think this article in the Guardian makes more sense if you want to follow those lines.

The Guardian piece says something about her motivations, and makes sense as far as it goes. But there does seem to be a prima facie case that Theresa's dad was, at least, extraordinarily unwilling to notice evils that were taking place immediately around him.

Yep, the misinterpretation of "traveller" was silly.

Here they were called drummers, no? Does that make this a music thread?

There may be something in this , but it looks to me like an attempt to sully the PM by virtue of unproven insinuations .   This sort of mudslinging comes from left and right , and is deplorable. I recently saw a Facebook post alleging that May was urging child abusers be permitted to adopt or foster. But on examining the link, there was no substance in that either. Disdaining a politician and their policies is one thing, speculative character assassination is quite another

Pete - in May's case this mudslinging may be coming from the far right of her own party....???
