Liam Thorp is the ECHO's award-winning political editor and according to him works awfully close with Joe Anderson?

However now {Mr. Anderson is on sick home leave} Liam Thorp it seems is now working with Cllr {Richard Kemp}?
One needs to know {Liam Thorp's} past a few years ago with a plan to mislead The Paul Foot award.

‘The Paul Foot Award is an award given for investigative or campaigning journalism, set up by The Guardian and Private Eye’

Liam Thorp had tried to invent a fake award 2 years ago to try to win the Paul Foot award he also wanted to put up Alister Houghton another Liverpool Echo reporter along with a 3rd reporter who backed out.

This was all exposed by - Peter Kilfoyle, members of the public and researchers, all the information was then made public and the reporters in the Liverpool Echo all backed down in disgrace.

Question: how can this reporter be believed and hold a position as the Liverpool City Council Mayors top political editor when setting up fake awards and trying to mislead the Paul Foot Award?
1) Now in the past 72 hours Liam Thorp has been calling several other parties and members of the public in Liverpool telling them and other councilors that-
‘Cllr Barry Kushner and his wife’ were locked up a week ago and a home was searched by the police, was this information passed from the L.C.C. to Liam Thorp?

2) 2) Why is Liam Thorp doing this, as the Police so far have no record of this, do the council have any other information on this matter?

Yours faithfully,

Mr. . Pickford

Dear Mr…Pickford…


Please see attached our response to your information request.


In relation to the comments and speculation you make relating to
individuals -


Warning - Submission of Information Requests with potentially Defamatory


It is our assessment that the content of a number of the statements within
your request are in whole or part potentially defamatory in nature, that
these identify or refer to individuals and are being published by yourself
through the use of a public website forum to third parties.


We would further advise you that the defamatory statements made by
yourself either directly or through recognised aliases and contained
within the information requests referenced above fall within the meaning
of Article 14(1)(a) of the E-Commerce Directive (2000/31/EC). Under the
law of England and Wales, a defamatory statement is one which tends to
lower the claimant in the estimation of right thinking members of society
generally (Sim v Stretch [1936] 2 All ER 1237).


We would further advise that a defamatory statement is published at the
place where it is read, heard or seen, and is not where the material was
first placed on the internet. In internet cases, therefore, provided a
small number of people have access to the material on the internet in
England, the English courts will have jurisdiction to hear the claim
against a foreign defendant (Spiliada Maritime Corp v Cansulex Ltd [1987]
A.C. 460).


We would therefore advise that you take prompt action to remove or
disabled access to the Offending Webpages.


In the event that this confirmation is not received, the individuals named
directly or by implication within the above referenced information
requests and publicly displayed on the Offending Websites shall reserve
the right to issue proceedings against you seeking relief for defamation.


The remedies that may be available to the these individuals include an
injunction restraining further publication of the Offending Statement
[pending trial], damages, legal costs and interest.
