It’s horrible that these women were deceived, but one of them became pregnant AFTER learning he wasn’t who he claimed to be. She’s an idiot.

Episode 2 of season 2 is also ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ . I remember reading about this at the time, during the first years of my teaching career. Working in a school with a residential boarding facility. However I didn't realise how early in the 1980s, knowledge about infected blood became known. This is truly shocking. A superb piece of investigate journalism.

Having listened to this first episode of season 2 of Bed of Lies, I am extremely impressed with the quality of the reporting. I will certainly be following the series. This is a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ quality, though extremely disturbing piece of journalism.

FFS this is disgusting behaviour by the MET, every new revelation is worse than the last!! I cannot believe that this is all true and that it happened to so many women over so many years. It would be very very hard to ever trust another person. I hope all these women are able to find some peace, they deserve it.

4 episodes in and I have found this to be a fascinating podcast. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Given some of the things that have been happening during 2020, in terms of the way 'The State' behaves towards us, perhaps I'm not quite as surprised as I should be 😒
