A reader has alerted me to a potential lead in who Richard Murphy, the popular satirical spoof of myself, might be.
During Wednesday’s triumph at the House of Lords, a loyal friend of mine alerted me to the fact that Richard Murphy’s twitter account was strangely silent during the session, though full of activity before and after.
This leads me to the conclusion that Richard Murphy was unable to tweet during that time.
Consequently, I have managed to deduce that Richard Murphy is a pseudonym of either Belinda Dodwell or Patricia Stevens. Everybody else had the opportunity to tweet whereas those two didn’t due to leaving their smartphones in their handbags under the desk.
Whoever you are, know this, I am closing in on you.
