According to FBI and local police officials, his Uncle Raymond — to whom young Bill turns for wisdom and support — is a colorful car dealer, slot machine owner and gambling operator, who thrives except when his house is firebombed on the fault line of criminality. You lived a lie because you knew that all of these activities were illegal. I mean, as soon as you got old enough to be able to read a newspaper, you knew that gambling in Arkansas was illegal, prostitution was illegal. And so you lived this lie, so you have to find some way to justify that to yourself and, you know, you justify it by saying, “Well,” you know, “it’s okay here. We had wide-open gambling, for one thing, and it was so wide open that it never occurred to me that it was illegal – it really didn’t – until it came to a vote about whether we were going to legalize gambling or not.

Bell thought it might be possible to generate undulating electrical currents that corresponded to sound waves. But he had no working model to demonstrate the feasibility of these ideas.

Antonio Meucci sent a telephone model and technical details to the Western Union telegraph company but failed to win a meeting with executives. When he asked for his materials to be returned, in , he was told they had been lost. Two years later Bell, who shared a laboratory with Meucci, filed a patent for a telephone, became a celebrity and made a lucrative deal with Western Union.

Meucci sued and was nearing victory – the supreme court agreed to hear the case and fraud charges were initiated against Bell – when the Florentine died in The legal action died with him. Henry replied that Bell had “the germ of a great invention”.

Share this article Share Up against popular Blairite grandee Tessa Jowell for the Labour Party nomination, he had always been considered something of a political B-lister. However, those who have watched him closely in the South London borough of Tooting — where he grew up in a council house and now lives with his solicitor wife Saadiya and their two teenage daughters — are less surprised by his dramatic ascent.

What they have observed over the years is a hugely energetic and calculating political operator with an iron grip on his constituency. Though he has skilfully focused public attention on his colourful back story — he grew up on a tough estate and shared a bedroom with his two brothers until he left home at 24 to get married — and his life outside politics, he has in truth been a highly driven career politician almost his entire adult life.

Khan has come under heavy fire for repeatedly sharing platforms with Islamic fundamentalists and hate preachers when he was a Labour minister. His aides counter he is despised by such characters because he is so moderate — he had death threats for supporting gay marriage.
