They say that one needs a good memory if one wants to successfully sustain a lie. I'll get straight to business guys - here's what Cherie told Louis when she met him. She's just told him that he'd been 'gullible' in 2000, he'd been duped by the older, 'celebrity'. Then, the once gullible, film maker gets this old crap
I was at school doing my A levels. All hell broke loose I found out I was pregnant. I had it on January 18th and they didn't know * I just wanted to go home and there was this huge electric fire - 2 bar fire behind the door and I fell on it.
I got to the hospital ... I couldn't use my hands and I was sitting on the edge of my bed, and I was just looking out of the window as I am now, and I saw somebody just running. But, as they were running, they looked at me .. they changed course and their eye fixed on me and they started running directly towards me, and the next minute the person tried to climb in the window ... he was climbing in, and by the time he got down, jumped down .. smiling, came straight at me, went to kiss me and his tongue went straight down my throat. And then he started jabbering ... you've been a naughty girl with your boyfriend.
Wow, did Louis really believe this ? Better still, did he even bother to compare this to the story she gave the dame ? You see, in Louis's version, she's on her own when running man comes bounding through her window - he'd spoken to the head surgeon 'or someone had told him that I was on my own in there'
She says she rebukes herself for not telling anyone at the time
'Why didn't I go up to someone and complain and make a thing of it ? But, you were scared to ...
In the dame's version
Consider the physical impossibilities of her tale ! When was the last time you were inside a room looking out a window and able to lock eyes with someone who's so far away he has to run to get to you ? Now, remember this is 1973, she'd been admitted after an accident, presumably to the burns unit. I doubt it would have been the spinal injuries unit huts whose windows looked like this
In 1973 Jimmy filmed inside the spinal injuries unit for an episode of Clunk Click. Here he is cheering up two young patients, the 'gangsters' as he affectinately refers to them as
Did I give you tee-shirts ? He jokingly berates the boy
Jimmy's pulled out a picture the lad has drawn of him
Making the boy blush about his girlfriend
Note the windows, the curtains that create a bed-space and some privacy on wards. OK, Cherie may not have been on one of these wards, but I ask you, would Jimmy have been able to get into ANY window on any ward ? Remember, she said he JUMPED DOWN from the window, meaning he'd have had to climb up the bloody thing. NO, this story is either an exaggeration of something harmless that may have happened, or, a complete fabrication ! Either way, Cheirie doesn't sound all there does she ? Sorry
Here's Jimmy inside the ward during the campaign to rebuild the spinal injuries unit circa 1980
The least thing either Louis or the dame could have done was ask her which ward she was on ? You see Stoke Mandeville Hospital is a very big place. Next time, I'll be considering what Jimmy's friend Sylvia Nichol has to say about Jimmy and Stoke Mandeville hospital. At least she knows when he first visited the place, the actual date that is. I leave you with an image I swiped from one of the Exposure films
