Thorpe. Liberal Party. What’s your name? Norman, sir. Jeremy Thorpe is elected
leader of the Liberal Party. He was – heaven. You’re the youngest man
to lead a British political party in more than a century. Careful now. I’m not sure any boy is
worth ending up in prison for. I was a victim… My little bunny. …of his lust. He will destroy me, and the party,
and my marriage. Mrs. Thorpe?
And who are you? So? What would you
like me to do? Jeremy Thorpe is a
highly respected man. It is alleged that Thorpe and
Mr. Scott began a homosexual affair… That’s me – on the telly. I can’t believe they
can say this on the BBC. This is story of a liar
meeting a fantasist. And I am not sure
which one’s which. This is bonkers, isn’t it.
It’s bloody nuts. I’m arresting you for
conspiracy to murder. He’s perfected the art
of hiding in plain sight. Jeremy Thorpe did this.
It was Jeremy Thorpe! There is only one way
for us to survive. I will talk. I will be heard.
And I will be seen! You were amazing! I was rude. I was vile.
I was queer. I was myself. A Very English Scandal
