Here it is, with my comments below. And here it is in pdf format. It’s a truly bizarre letter.
Paragraph 1: “Please note we have today notified the police and all the authorities inc our solicitors of your racist, threatening and slanderous lies . . . “.
I doubt very much if he has gone to the police.
What does “All the authorities” mean? Has he gone to the fire brigade, and the council; the sewage board and the education authority?
“Racist”! What is he talking about? He’s obviously trying to play on the fact that he’s English and I’m a Welsh nationalist. Desperate stuff.
Paragraph 2: The letter he refers to came from a Chester solicitor asking that I take down everything I’d written about Paul and Rowena Williams, no mention of Cunliffe. Which always seemed odd because Chester’s a bit off their patch.
I wondered at the time if it had been organised by Cunliffe to protect himself, seeing as it was written soon after he was first mentioned in the Weep for Wales saga. Did he get involved with Paul and Rowena Williams without realising how famous they were?
Paragraph 4: “Racist”, again.
And it’s alleged I’m threatening ” . . . not just people’s livelihoods but people’s safety and well-being”. I have issued no threats whatsoever.
Paragraph 5: “Cyber bullies like you are the filth in our society and believe me when I say I will eradicate you and your blog”.
Interesting. Wanting to ‘eradicate’ my blog, I can understand. ‘Eradicating’ me can only be a threat to kill.
Paragraph 6: “I will take your assets as compensation including your home and see you in the bankruptcy courts, demanding that you and anyone in your family pay me and my companies’ compensation. I say your family because you have involved mine. Aiding and abetting is a serious crime”.
I have never mentioned his ‘family’ other than to wonder if another Cunliffe, living in Spain, might be his brother. ‘Aiding and abetting’? Does he think my computer illiterate wife helps me with the blog?
Paragraph 7: “I see you’ve blocked your address out on the previous letter (see Weep for Wales: a statement) unfortunately our new blog will be giving everyone the chance to see the facts about the vile and vindictive person you really are”.
In para 5 he was calling me a ‘cyberbully’ – now he’s going to be one himself by giving out my home address on his new blog.
P.S. Someone has pointed out on Twitter that the letter is unsigned. Making it even more bizarre.
What I find really strange is that I haven’t written that much about Cunliffe, certainly not compared to what I’ve written about the Williams gang. He was mentioned in updates to Weep for Wales 11. Then he was mentioned in Weep for Wales 11a.
Even so, I’m a reasonable man. And though there’s nothing incorrect or libellous in Weep for Wales 12 I suppose someone could misinterpret what I’ve written. So I have taken down Weep for Wales 12. It will be back after I have revised it to remove any possibility of misunderstanding.
Myles Andrew Cunliffe may not have gone to the police, But I certainly have. To pass on his letter containing the threats to publish my personal details online, to pursue a vendetta against my blameless family, and of course – to ‘eradicate’ me.
UPDATE: Here’s an e-mail from North Wales Police acknowledging receipt of my online complaint.
UPDATE 04.09.2019: Written confirmation that my complaint to North Wales Police regarding the threat to my life has been recorded as a crime. (I have redacted the police officer’s name.)
