What if they're still there?
Two letters from you to Scott.
Turns out they've been locked away since 1962...
But these are just copies.
Norman Scott has demanded the originals back,
and I've got no power to stop him.
I'm afraid to say, I think Scott will publish.
Oh, Christ, not this one.
But evidence goes missing all the time. Policemen lie.
Why can't this stuff just disappear?
Why is everyone suddenly so bloody honest?
I'd advise that we find a safe newspaper
and publish the letters ourselves,
accompanied by an interview entirely in your favour.
I can't let people see these.
I can't deny there will be consequences,
but if you don't publish the letters, Scott will.
It could be your version of events, or his.
-那我们得剪掉那个 -不 不行
- Well, then, we have to cut that bit. - No, we can't.
- We have to cut that word. - Which word?
- That one there. - What one?
That one! Bunnies!
鲁伯特 亲爱的 我想让你拿上那片烤面包
Rupert, darling, I want you to take that piece of toast
and eat it in your room, hmm?
-好的 爸爸 -好孩子
- Yes, Papa. - There's a good boy.
"Bunnies can and will go to France.
你最亲爱的 杰里米 另 我想你"
Yours, affectionately, Jeremy. PS, I miss you."
所以 你是小兔兔们 是吗 诺曼
So...you're Bunnies, are you, Norman?
It was my nickname.
I liked it.
Technically he was Bunny, singular.
Then why did you say "Bunnies"?
Were there two of you? Are you a Bunny?
Am I married to a Bunny?
No, I was using a generic noun in an imperative clause.
Well, thank God it's grammatically correct,
because the whole country's reading this! Bunnies!
Well, I saw David Steel, handed him my letter.
I have resigned as leader of the Liberal Party.
One bloody word brought me down.
No, it wasn't Bunnies.
It's because you lied.
You told the party you hardly knew Norman Scott,
then the Bunnies letter caught you out.
From that moment on, your position was untenable.
Now, Rupert's with Alison and James.
I've packed that little case of his.
They said he could stay the night
so that you and I can talk about everything.
I've made cod in parsley sauce.
Before I met you,
before I met Caroline...
I had moments, I...
Certain nights, unfortunate nights,
With no women in the vicinity, I...
I would dabble, to relieve myself...
And that's all.
So, this thing with Norman Scott,
it wasn't a relationship?
-怎么可能是 -杰里米 我不傻
- How could it be? - Jeremy, I'm not a fool.
I practically grew up with Benjamin Britten.
I've seen something of the world.
I fled from Hitler, for God's sake.
My own son married a hippie in a yurt,
and I've toured with orchestras.
I couldn't begin to tell you the things I've seen,
so there's no need to protect me.
I made mistakes, and I've stopped.
And I swear I had nothing to do with that gun and the dog and...
-你当然没有 杰里米 -绝对和我没关系
- Of course you didn't. Jeremy! - Absolutely nothing to do with me.
I'm not even asking.
I won't dignify it with discussion,
- and there's an end to it. - Thank you.
For what it's worth,
I think people are focused on the word "Bunnies"...
..But the last thing you wrote in that letter was, "I miss you".
I think that's a wonderful thing for a man to say to his friend.
Are you all right?
Very nice dinner.
I think this is a new start, isn't it?
I'm still a Member of Parliament, there's work to be done.
The party could do with a change in leadership,
新血液不断加入 比如 克莱门特·弗洛伊德
and all that new blood coming in - Clement Freud,
Cyril Smith, exciting times.
And what about Norman Scott?
- Are we finished with him? - Absolutely, Absolutely.
Damn him, but there's nothing more he can do.
Stewart Cutley, Evening News.
We meet at last.
The longest 12 months of my life. Hey, I'm warning you,
I want 75 grand for my side of the story.
I'm bloody Watergate, I am.
I can give you 3,000 tops.
- Deal? - Deal.
Andrew Newton can name the men who paid him
but he's never met you in his life.
The police don't have any actual proof, none whatsoever -
and who can they summon as a witness? No-one.
Jeremy Thorpe, the dirty sod!
We should take this to the papers.
Mr Peter Bessell. Who's he, then?
I need to ask you, Mr Bessell,
would you cooperate in bringing a case against Jeremy Thorpe?
Specifically, would you appear in court as a witness?
You mean, as a prosecution witness?
- Yes. - You'll be fully aware that
Jeremy Thorpe is my best friend.
I'm sorry. I've been unwell.
Of course, sir -
and I respect your position,
but we have a letter here
concerning the relationship between Mr Scott and Mr Thorpe.
Oh, you mean the Bunnies one? It's nothing.
Bunnies, you people don't realise,
public schools are run on nicknames.
Everyone I know it is a Bunny or a Beano or a Biffo.
I don't mean Bunnies.
I mean this.
A letter from Norman Scott to Jeremy Thorpe's mother, 17 pages,
describing his explicit relationship with her son...
