Some pundits have accused the national press of ignoring the Sally Murrer case, but she has praised Private Eye for its support. In a letter published in the latest issue of the magazine, she writes: "I wish to say a huge thank you to Private Eye for the unflagging support it has shown during the past 19 months of the attempted prosecution against me by Thames Valley Police...Your articles gave me hope and made me smile during a horrible time."
The letter is signed "Many Thanks, Sally Murrer (Somewhat battered Milton Keynes journalist)." Private Eye could not resist headlining the letter: "Murrer the Merrier".
