Hathorn's revenge- they don't like it upp'em

I asked Willy Hathorne on Wednesday (at Westminster) if he could name a trustee of the depot who hadn't received the kibosh, to which he answered 'the late Caleb Furse' (the said Cornishman incidentally was a known abuser and molester).

William jointly with henchmen Hales, McNaughton and Christie as a 'tit for tat' sanctions a brutish salvo aimed squarely at www.wikipeebia.com. (See copy below).

PBCC / HEB muscle flexing is by no means a new phenomenon, it is best viewed as puerile and of absolutely no consequence whatsoever.

Richard J Gardner's book 'righteous release' was written as a result of the Author being employed by WHG Hathorn for quite some time; http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/1849630798

  1. Could you please explain the connection? I'm not getting it.

  2. Furse's eldest son died after an epileptic fit brought on by his alcoholism and his younger son suffers with obsessive compulsive disorder. His youngest daughter also died. His family is a very sad story.

    Did William not mention Gordon Pollard?

  3. If it is the same family, the Furse were fisher folk based at Mevagissey, Cornwall and were well known to brethren holiday makes in the summer (during the days when things were relatively "normal"). I remember them, from childhood, and have or two harbour photos from the mid 20th c., including Caleb. Sorry to hear that their lives became so blighted under the Exclusives, even in their far off outpost.

  4. I'm sure if I were in the PBCC I'd want that ridiculous tosh moved from the public domain as soon as possible to save further embarrassment and humiliation. Very fitting that they can then achieve their own ends by blaming someone else for it!!

  5. It would be interesting to know why the PBCC want their documents removed from the mirror site. After all, they are already on public view at the PBCC site. Presumably they don’t want them in a place where there is freedom of speech.

    The Brethren might learn a thing or two from other failed attempts to suppress the spread of information on the Internet. The Church of Scientology and the Watchtower Society have made the same mistake, provoking much more criticism than they were trying to suppress.

    The most recent example is the attempt by the Turkish Prime Minister to block access to Twitter in Turkey. This arose because evidence of his corrupt dealing was circulating on Twitter. But his move against Twitter has been a major blunder. It has backfired very badly. Few people outside Turkey had ever heard of the allegations against him; now the whole world knows. Few people cared much about whether he was corrupt or not, but they are incensed by his attack on freedom of speech. In international eyes that is much worse than the alleged corruption.

    I think the PBCC’s copyright has indeed been infringed, but they will damage their own reputation even further if they try to do anything about it.

  6. Is the chap in the blue cap, trying to look like that little bloke John Hales from Sydney?
    May be more brownie points
