An interim statement from Patrick Mercer, who is today looking at evidence:

“I disassociate myself from anything that Glen Jenvey may have claimed about Mr Tim Ireland and will be looking carefully into my other dealings with Mr Jenvey.” – Patrick Mercer (Con.) MP

Smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em, troops. But stay alert.

UPDATE (3:50pm) – I’ve spoken to Patrick Mercer again. He was helpful, communicative and cooperative, and we agree that his interim statement will do just fine for now.

There’s a lot of cleaning up to do, but this is a load off my mind.

For those who came in late:

See this summary of events to date from Richard Bartholomew, and the moment when Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles put his relationship with Mr Jenvey in the past.

Any time mainstream folks want to jump on board, feel free.

The ‘terror expert’ Glen Jenvey is clearly a fantasist who is interfering in matters of national/global security and peddling his evidence to the press and public after it has been turned down by police. He admits to engaging in a form of freelance espionage while posing as a reporter, and he has been using a barely-legal mix of entrapment and incitement in order to stir up trouble in (virtual) Muslim communities and provoke the kind of response that will generate a story and the profits that follow. There is also at least one provable and fully documented occurrence of Glen Jenvey falsifying evidence of online extremism for a story, but (having seen some missed nuggets this very morning) I can guarantee you that more is waiting to be discovered. Some of it on the pages of your own newspap*….

(ahem)

Erm, yes, as I was saying; any time mainstream media folks want to jump on board, feel free. Or, me and a few bloggers, we’ll just continue handling this your problem ourselves. No biggie.

PS – Oh, and pay this a bit of attention, too, please.
