More on Wesley Hall’s links with Hacker House

Last week we broke news of an apparent link between Boris Johnson’s friend Jennifer Arcuri, her controversial Hacker House enterprise, and Lancashire-based convicted criminal and Hampstead hoax pusher Wesley Hall.

BoJo, Arcuri, and…Wesley Hall?

While we’re just as interested in politics as anyone, we must confess that we hadn’t been paying much attention to the Boris Johnson/Jennifer Arcuri story until quite recently.

According to a Facebook video released yesterday by Neelu Berry, John Paterson’s contempt of court hearing ended in a guilty judgment, and resulted in a 21-day prison sentence, suspended for one year, as well as a £19,000 fine. Paterson appeared surprisingly jaunty, given this outcome. He was apparently so relieved not to have been immediately…
