I first wrote to JB early 2012 so about 5 years ago. At this point in time he had been in prison some 26 years so I thought it pointless asking about any details that relied upon memory. There were long gaps in my replies eg many months. However after an exchange of a couple of letters it became apparent to me that he had a poor understanding of what I consider to be the important aspects of his case. Instead he would focus on what I consider seemingly trivial aspects: two silencers, info held under pii and of course an imminent release!
I asked for his help in making available soc photos for casings in the main bedroom and landing. His response was that NB wasn't shot upstairs and the police made it all up. I also put something to him about the blood flake which was dismissed out of hand. At this point I knew that I was wasting my time.
Imo his mind has been truly scrambled not only by his long incarceration but by listening to the likes of Mike and the CT. When JB has an opportunity to communicate with the outside world eg DM and Guardian interviews he waffles on about aspects of his case that are at best weak and imo have no substance to them eg a call from NB to the police or police communicating with someone inside the farmhouse. He really is his own worst enemy. His blogs etc are imo completely inappropriate, irrelevant and a total embarrassment. If he had a consistent spokesperson throughout eg a solicitor or the like I don't believe he would be in the position he is in today.
My communication is now limited to greeting cards wishing him well. I doubt very much if he considers me a 'supporter' as he knows that I don't support many aspects of the case he holds dear. I did send him a little pic of myself and I wouldn't be surprised to find it on the prison dartboard
