Mr Bates vs The Post Office
9th Jan 2024
The ITV drama has captured the interest of the British public in the past week and it seems that it’s not about to stop here! With petitions and rallies of support for those effected going viral on the internet this topic is a hot one!
Nick Wallis, journalist and author of The Post Office Scandal will be making his way to Burnham-on-Sea in the spring to tell the real stories of the people at the heart of the scandal.
Nick (also a consultant on the ITV Drama) expertly chronicles the twists and turns of the scandal, taking in the shambolic commissioning of the disastrous Post Office Horizon IT system and examining the punitive methods employed by the Post Office – bypassing the police and the Crown Prosecution Service – to create the most widespread miscarriage of justice in UK legal history. Nick then narrows in on the subsequent cover-up, and the staggering legal battles fought and won by campaigning Subpostmasters, against all the odds. As the public inquiry into the scandal reveals yet more horrors, Nick will be able to explain the very latest developments and their significance.
