    Quite a few people notified the Met about a scientology search for a PR company to act for them, including Edinburgh Police.

    No doubt the reason why so many peeps supplied copies of this to the Met was the focus on Interpol as the scientology target.

    Note also the sig by Sheila Gaiman.

    This one is a little intriguing, as it's an Interpol telegram (also drawing attention to the cult's hunt for a PR firm) and the sender is redacted. Sounds much more personal that other Interpol telegrams. So who is the mystery sender? Clearly not an ordinary UK police officer. Could it be a head honcho at Interpol? Or a minister?

    Why thank you.
    That looks like a black lab retriever.

    It does read very much like a flustered minister trying to give a heads up doesn't it.

    I particularly like the "this is difficult to say".
