Security firm G4S has vehemently denied that Theresa May’s husband has any involvement with it, following claims on this blog and many, many others.
As you can see from the image above, the company tried to contact This Writer via Twitter in order to discuss the Vox Political article. I don’t give out any personal telephone numbers on public media like Twitter but I did get back in touch to suggest the company should make a statement regarding the situation, its origins, and why it has been allowed to roll on for more than three years.
The first article This Writer could discover linking G4S with Mr May was in July 2012. It has since been removed and in the absence of any solid evidence, VP‘s article has also been taken down.
However, it should be noted that G4S has made no official statement – beyond the tweets – and did not get back to me.
It seems clear that the allegation cannot be supported at this time. It may have been a mistake; it may have been a practical joke. If so, it has worked extremely well, because not only has This Writer been taken in by it but many more, across the social media, over that more-than-three-year period.
This Blog regrets the error and apologises for any inconvenience – but notes that the misapprehension under which so many of us have been labouring could have been avoided if the company had taken appropriate steps to clarify the situation back in 2012.
