Cyril Smith's coded message?

Whilst leaving his minions to defend his honour, Cyril Smith writes in this weekend's Rochdale Observer on another subject -the death of former Rochdale Tory Councillor Pamela Hawton.

Spanker Smith is also quoted in a Rochdale Observer article about the former Tory councillor who at times in the 1970's and 80's had responsibilities for Education, Health and Social Services in Cyril's Borough.

"‘good friend right up until her death’.

He added: "She was a very straight person who said what she thought and her word could be trusted. If she gave you her word she would stick by it."

Cyril pays tribute with very odd phrases in his letter:

"We shared many confidences".

"Her word was always her bond".

Have Cyril's comments given himself away? Here is a comment on the Rochdale Observer website:

"Pam was a lovely lady and extremely hard working on health, education and social service roles for Rochdale Borough.

People may be perplexed with Sir Cyril Smith describing her as a ‘good friend right up until her death' and that 'her word could be trusted. If she gave you her word she would stick by it.'

This man is unbelievable. I know what he is talking about and so do many others. Why does he have to talk in enigmatic code?"
