Dear Ed,
MURRAY P. will be now have mailed to you a $2,000 cheque.[...].

2. We are therefore now in a position for your Melbourne associates to proceed to issue the Writ alleging Libel against John Howard for saying in the Melbourne radio broadcast, with intent that it should be repeated nation- and worldwide in the media, that I have criminal convictions in Britain, Canada, and Germany. We have seen his lawyers' unconvincing response. ó The ultimate objects of our action are (a) embarrass Howard; (b) obtain leverage over your government; (c) perhaps even obtain fresh grounds for entry (to fight the action); (d) to win (tho' I accept your opinion this is improbable).

3. To establish beyond doubt my lack of any criminal conviction in this country, I applied under Britain's Data Protection Act 1984 to Scotland Yard for a copy of any criminal records relating to me. There was a form that had to be filled out, and a fee paid; today I received the result ó they drew a blank on every possible front. I attach their reply.

Yours sincerely,

David Irving
