Ray Gosling Wasted Police Time With BBC Tale Of ‘Murdering’ His Lover

by | 14th, September 2010

RAY Gosling, 70, arrived at Nottingham Magistrates Court, where he is accused of wasting police time over claims that he killed a former lover dying of Aids. He pleads guilty. Gosling went on the telly to ‘confess’ to smothering a lover to death. He was pretty to the point on a news programme:

I killed someone once. He was a young chap, he’d been my lover and he got Aids. I said to the doctor: ‘Leave me… just for a bit,’ and he went away. I picked up the pillow and smothered him until he was dead.”

He repeated the claim on the BBC Breakfast show. He was arrested on suspicion of murder.

And at the apogee of his fame Gosling said it was not so. News is not news at all. It’s just a chat between pals. As Gosling said:

“It was a small item on a regional TV programme Inside Out, in my country (sic) the East Midlands, to my people, with whom I have had an intimate relationship.”

Gosling added:

I know what some people say, that I said what I did for publicity to promote a book I’m writing. That is absolutely not true, I haven’t finished the book yet.”

Well, that book’s got a new anecdote. It might nto be as captivating as assisted suicide or murder but a bruish with the law makes for good copy.

And as for the alleged crime? Well, denim with denim and a carrier bag was never good look. Send the man down!

And if the police can get him on camera ‘confessing’ to taking Our Maddie, hiding Lord Lucan, killing Shergar and burying Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, then so much the more entertaining…
