Been tweeted by @lorddeben account that he's died. But is the account even real (Lord Deben is John Gummer )?

If this is true ... well...

well will it be such a great loss...

It's true - BBC have reported it.

Wonder what this will mean next - and whether the missing dossiers will turn up afterall.

It's on Sky News online.

ooh maybe now the truth will out.

Yep - maybe. A quick google search will show what he was being accused of. Grim reading indeed.

Hmm. Haven't read the links but if you were conspiracy minded..,

Oh, cancer, probably not then.

Did he have family?

Ehric people on twitter are saying the CSA delays were because they knew the end was close for LB.

"ooh maybe now the truth will out."

Good grief, the mans not cold yet.

He had a wife and skids. I will reserve what I wanted to say.

The awful outcomes are a man was plagued by online rumours which turn out to be untrue or he can't defend himself as dead. Or they are proven to be true and justice has been denied.
