First, in the context of Vulgate recensions, let us note that referencing Alcuin without referencing the Cassiodorus efforts and heavenly witness reference, and the Theodulf recension (at least this was mentioned by Brooke) and the question of the Bede manuscript is a bit of rather blatant-cherry-picking and not real scholarship.
More significantly, how could a scholar talk about the Vulgate manuscript line and "forget" to tell his reader that about 95% of 1000s of hand-written Vulgate manuscripts have the verse ? Unless they put agenda before scholarship.<<Have you never heard that manuscripts are to be weighed and not counted? Produce 10,000 copies, and it would still make no difference.george
