ED FRINGE REVIEW Ricky Tomlinson, Guilty My Arse

★★★★★

Ricky Tomlinson, star of BBC sitcom The Royle Family talks openly about how him and his building work mates were stitched up by the establishment, charged with conspiracy and sentenced to three years imprisonment.


The trial in 1973 lasted 55 days and in today’s money cost around £10 million. Now he’s asking why the government won’t release the papers after 42 years, and why Kenneth Clarke MP does not want the files reviewed until 2021.
