Take a look at today's addition to our companion blog.
Philip Birch is dead.
Just like the nonsense spewed out about Ronan O'Rahilly, a whitewash is now being put into place regarding the life of Philip Birch and his connection to Don Pierson and the 'Radio KLIF Project'. To learn more about how the dots all connect in a story that anoraks don't know and which anorak publications won't tell you, go to our companion blog for today. Use the link above.
Here is Part One of what was to have been a three-part published interview, but the publication died with the publication of Part Two. There was no Part Three. Commentary will follow this text.
So according to Ronan O'Rahilly the ship must have been named after a dance .... cha, cha, cha .... before it was renamed Caroline, and a lot of silly stuff about a broke idiot who swindles his friends in Ireland, arrives in London, gets a down and out flat and suddenly has enough cash to start a radio station. But the best bit is this: "Jimmy" is not even mentioned and neither is Jocelyn Stevens because Ronan hates aristocrats. Since 'Reveille' plugged Radio Atlanta, O'Rahilly should have kissed-up to 'Tit-Bits' which was hardly an aristocratic publication like 'Queen'. If you believe O'Rahilly and any of his silly story you deserve to be a victim of his abuse of the word truth.
You will soon be able to read for yourself what Ronan O'Rahilly is alleged to have said, and what the real truth was behind his lies, right here, beginning in our next edition ....
On November 13, 2014 at BBC Radio Kent, Dave Cash said to Tony Benn sitting opposite him in the studio, that he had read a document by Professor Eric Gilder about Garner Ted Armstrong. Tony Benn said about that nothing would surprise him concerning its veracity. That was quite an admission. You can hear the recording for yourself in our post of yesterday.
"Our post", what is this "our" business?
Anoraks continually attack one person and it isn't Professor Dr Habil Eric Gilder.
Not surprising really, because the anoraks have probably not read the article that Dave Cash referred to, even though it has been online for years, and what is more, it can be read free of charge.
Until the year 1990, there were comparatively few books dealing with the origins of Radio Caroline in 1964, and most of those were of an amateur nature focusing upon Tony Benn as some sort of political spoil-sport. Prime Minister Harold Wilson hid behind Benn while Benn took the brunt of abuse and ridicule.
At one point in the proceedings, Benn even remarked that Wilson was listening to one of the offshore stations, and Benn confirmed that the sound of offshore radio was to be heard in his own home. Politicians in all of the main parties, some more than others, kept raising the issue about passing a law to "suppress" these stations, but Tony Benn refused to attach his name to any Parliamentary Bill with that word in its title.
Just before the 1967 Marine Offences Act was presented to Parliament in its final form, Benn was promoted to a higher job that embraced his previous authority, but which gave him a wider responsibility than his job as Postmaster General. By the time all the shouting was over and the Bill had become the Law, the nation did not engage in civil war, and neither did the Labour Party immediately lose office. That change came about due to the financial mismanagement of the British economy and a disaster in the making that involved international loans resulting in a revolt over unemployment by British trade unions.
Because Tony Benn was a maverick within his own political party, and because Tony Benn had surrendered a title which had previously placed him briefly in the House of Lords, and because he had married an American wife with the eponymous first name of Caroline, he was a fringe player, but a man who was constantly interested in his own continuing education about the past. However, he was not a total team player when it came to going along with party politics or even national identity as created by the British Establishment.
So Tony Benn took a lot of abuse from everyone, and now, in the light of new information it does indeed seem that Tony Benn could have adopted these lyrics for his own anthem:
"I've been cheated, been mistreated ....
I've been put down, I've been pushed 'round ...."
Some years ago on BBC Radio Kent, ex-offshore Radio London dj Dave Cash asked Tony Benn a question about our work, and Tony Benn was quite open and honest in his response ....
This article was written around the time that Nicholas Stanley's book 'Radio Man' first came to our attention, and then we began a joint investigation with Chris Edwards of OEM in order to uncover the story behind the mysterious paragraph on its page 276. This is the reference that attributed the beginnings of Radio Caroline to Charles Orr Stanley and his son John who both managed the Pye Group of companies.
Chris Edwards was not the first person to request that his name be removed from our list of contributors due to the highly controversial area into which we began to delve. However, after agreeing to abide by his request, Chris then began making comments on other forums that implied that what we are engaging in is something that he disapproves of. It is true that this investigation is rapidly pulling the rug from underneath the anorak belief system, and unless this contradiction is addressed in OEM, it is likely that upon our own publication in book format of this information, a question of credibility will soon confront Offshore Echos Magazine.
However, what is now becoming very obvious is that Tony Benn has been libeled and slandered and that Ronan O'Rahilly has been exalted to a level of admiration that he does not deserve. What allowed the libel and slander to take place was the hidden story of Radio Caroline, which to this day has never been told, except by us!
We will be explaining more about the real problem facing Tony Benn and the real reason for the passage into law of the Marine Broadcasting Act of 1967, and its updated by incorporation version into the 1990 Broadcasting Act, within this continuing series of Blog posts.
Anoraks are among the most stupid people walking this Planet.
We mean, that group who hide behind fictitious identities and parrot what they were told to parrot by a generation of radio broadcasting anoraks before them. Their great evil seems to be Tony Benn - who they appear to believe was the equivalent of the entity described in a Christian Bible as 'Satan'. Maybe for some anoraks that also includes Prime Minister Harold Wilson and their "abomination of desolation" was that law known as the 1967 Marine Offences Act. For the anoraks that law seems to be the beginning of the worst evil to ever strike the United Kingdom.
But why Tony Benn?
Because Tony Benn said that the offshore stations of the Sixties were 'pirates' and no nation could allow such disregard for its laws. But what laws were being challenged, and why was Tony Benn so adamant that the offshore stations of the 'SIxties had to be shut down? Tony Benn said that the lack of law enforcement was causing laws to be ignored with impunity.
Again, what laws were being ignored before the enactment of the 1967 Marine Offences Act?
Therein is the foundational root disease suffered by these radio anoraks: they don't know, they don't care and instead, the flap their gums and now tweeting fingers in the name of 'free radio'. But what freedoms are being discussed, and what freedoms do the anoraks believe that Tony Benn was denying to ordinary people?
Was it freedom of political speech? Hardly a cause reflected by the broadcasts of the offshore stations. In fact, in the beginning they were on official record as having told the Liberal Party to take a hike. There would be no political advertising on the original Radio Caroline.
Was it freedom of religion? Well the offshore stations sold time to religious broadcasters, but not one of the major programs carried the accent of someone from England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland - north or south. Not one of them was an advocate speaking on behalf of the Vatican (Roman Catholicism), nor a Buddhist, nor a Muslim promoting any version of Islam. No, for the most part they were American voices and with the exception of the Lutherans, they were American fringe groups outside the structure of mainstream American religion. Some, like Billy Graham spoke from a Baptist viewpoint, but Billy Graham was the darling of Queen Elizabeth II and he could be heard (and seen) on transmissions by the British Broadcasting Corporation. He could be seen and heard everywhere.
Was it recorded music? Even the often told lie about the shunning of Georgie Fame falls flat when his LP that was released by EMI before the first peep from Radio Caroline is considered. How about Joe Meek and his minor label? He was able to buy time on Radio Luxembourg, years before Radio Caroline first came on the air.
So what this clamour for 'free radio' all about? It had a run of several years in several versions to prove its point, but it failed. When the crunch came the British people asked for the Party of Tony Benn to legislate the laws of the United Kingdom. They won by a slim majority, so there was another election and they won that election as well by a nice majority. Then came the Marine Offences Act and Tony Benn was given even more power and authority to enforce that legislation.
After 1967 the days of the legitimate offshore radio campaign were over, and a bunch of thieves and crooks moved in. In the Eighties when Americans on Madison Avenue were conned (once again) into believing a ridiculous message about 'Pan-European Advertising', the UK government of that day also took action. Now it was law enforcement reflected in the legislative action of both the Conservative and Labour Parties.
So again we ask, why the libel and slander of Tony Benn - especially when it came to 'that' general audience motion picture?
We don't know the answer, except that those who libeled and slandered Tony Benn could "get away with it", because he was a political figure.
We confess to having held similar views, until we started to dig deep into British history. But what we learned does not support the Anorak libel and slander, it goes to something much more basic and the Anoraks don't want to know.
So we continue to research this subject from an academic and forensic standpoint, only to find ourselves at 'war' with the loony Anoraks. They just don't want to know but they can't explain why they don't want to know.
Do you know?
If its because we make it plain that Ronan O'Rahilly and his ilk were people who used and abused the dumb Anoraks for personal and financial gain, their reaction merely reflects how much of a degenerate mind-set these Anorak cultists have become.
Or is it because even their most "sacred cow" is exposed as merely an invented myth, namely that the act of broadcasting from a marine base is something which is almost 'holy' to "their cause" that the BBC could never understand. Except for the fact that back in 1927 the BBC was the first entity to transmit original studio broadcasts to the entire United Kingdom from a vessel.
Isn't it funny that the Anoraks 'overlooked' that fact, and they have focused instead upon a publicity stunt that took place later, and it didn't broadcast anything. It merely blasted music over loudspeakers to the shore. Even John Reith noted the aversion by the press in telling the truth about this original BBC claim to fame.
It was the press, not the record industry that had most to fear from the beginnings of BBC broadcasting in the United Kingdom. Anoraks have the wrong target because they lack a true foundation in the history of broadcasting, and because they are ignorant, they self-publish idiotic books that glorify events that never happened, and a steady stream of fraudsters who never achieved anything.
So we ask you: why the libel and slander of Tony Benn?
This is a reproduction of the information required on a section of the official paperwork for Planet Productions Limited, that was submitted in 1965 by Barry Ainley to the Irish government in Dublin.
So where does it say "Place Bros", and where is the connection to John Sheffield?
It doesn't say "Place Bros" and neither does it mention Close Bros who had connections to the dry-cleaning business that Ian Cowper Ross' father worked for. His name was not "Jimmy Shaw" or "Jimmy Ross", because neither person existed.
Did "Place Bros" exist? Even if it did, that is not what Barry Ainley submitted on this company document.
We are referring to the nonsense that OEM is continuing to remain uncorrected when its editors know about the Caroline fraud.
We know because Chris Edwards was our great co-partner in uncovering the rubbish spun by Ronan O'Rahilly by investigating the origins of the claims made by Nicholas Stanley in his book called 'Radio Man'. Just look what both Jocelyn Stevens AND Barry Ainley were doing in 1965. There was NO NEED for a "Jimmy Ross" .....
