The almost unbelievable saga of Paul Nuttall’s self-inflicted Hillsborough woes has taken an even more incredible turn – as this morning, Nuttall announced that he had yesterday ‘spent more than 3 hours’ giving a witness statement to Operation Resolve.
If Mr Nuttall has told the truth to the panel – and given his record so far and the gaping inconsistencies in his statements it’s a huge ‘if’ – then the question has to be asked:
WHY HAS IT TAKEN YOU ALMOST 30 YEARS when you knew police and the inquiry have been seeking witness statements?
The even more serious question, though – given that he will have been giving evidence under oath – is this:
If – as many people have now concluded – Mr Nuttall has been piggybacking on the tragedy of Hillsborough to try to increase his appeal and facing complete political oblivion and ridicule, has Mr Nuttall just perjured himself in a desperate attempt to escape the consequences of being found out?
His track record – and the complete absence of anyone apart from 2 family members and an employee who say he was there – means the police should be examining his statement with a microscope.
And prosecuting him to the full extent of the law should he be found to have lied under oath.
Whatever the eventual outcome of this, at best Mr Nuttall has done too little, too late – and at worst, he could face a lengthy spell behind bars.
