JOHN WALKER GETS THE BRUSH-OFF
But he gave it one last chance - and wrote to Danczuk asking if the MP would make a donation to the educational charity he and his wife run in the Gambia. It has to be stressed that at no time did Walker ask for a payment to be made to himself. The letter makes some most interesting points - none of which have been disputed by Danczuk.
“In the 48 hours between your excitement at the meeting with the agents and my visit to Rochdale, you had gone extremely cold on the whole proposal and did not really wish to discuss it … Matthew Baker sought every opportunity to change the subject … and you began to talk about wishing to turn the story into a TV docudrama”.
Walker then suggests that Danczuk make a donation to his educational charity - after all, other publications that he had assisted had done so. His letter was dated 17 April 2014.
