The Norfolk Constabulary report a “sophisticated and carefully orchestrated attack on the CRU’s data files, carried out remotely via the internet”.
CA sources have learned that UK police believe that the plan was carried out by a “mindermast”. The insidious methods of a mindermast are revealed in the interview below. here
The Norfolk Police reported:
The nature and sophistication of the attack does not suggest that it was anyone at the UEA.
Apparently, one of the steps in the “attack” involved calculating a trend in Excel. The police, quite reasonably in the opinion of many observers, accordingly excluded anyone at UEA.
The vocabulary of the Norfolk briefing is pleasingly similar to Peter Cook’s
plod. Cook’s police inspector solemnly pronounced the great train robbery to be the work of thieves:
Q: who perpetrated this awful crime?
A (deadpan): we believe this to be the work of thieves. ANd I’ll tell you why. The whole pattern is reminiscent of past robberies where we have found thieves to be involved: the telltale loss of property, the snatching away of money. It all points to thieves
Life surely imitates art in the pronouncement of the Norfolk Constabulary that they believed the release of emails to be the work of criminals, criminals so competent that no one at the University of East Anglia could be suspected. In the words of Peter Cook, by a mindermast.
