As a follow-up to yesterday's Blog, I want to briefly address a core excuse invented by the trolls to explain their own childlike behavior. The trolls claim that one member of 'The Trio' is too abrasive, and that he is not operating in a spirit of friendly banter shared by the cult of "Loving Awareness" who cooperate with each other.
The library of misinformation about Radio Caroline now in circulation feeds these trolls just as stale bread feeds ducks, but let us look as their complaint in detail which begins with the debunking of the lies invented by Ronan O'Rahilly. Not all of the people who have published information about Radio Caroline to date have bought into the lies and deceit spun by Ronan O'Rahilly, but most have.
So when our 'abrasive' investigator began ripping their tales to shreds, the cult of 'loving awareness' became very upset and full of hate for our 'abrasive' investigator.
However, some people are sitting on the fence watching and waiting as our investigation unfolds, and we have quietly received core information from them. Some of that core information is key to understanding the approach we are taking, because it contradicts the mythology spun by Ronan O'Rahilly.
But, without dotting every 'i' and crossing every 't' to fill in all of the gaps in the actual story, it allows wiggle room for the cultists. Our cooperating fence sitters are thus left in a very awkward situation in which they dare not share information about their cooperation with us, which then implies that a tiny group of just 3 people aided by me and making 4, are the cause of all the disruption in the camp of "loving awareness".
Without receiving help from several different quarters, this investigation could not have proceeded the way it has, and that help has been informational, and not financial.
Right now we are piecing together the life and times of Arthur Carrington who was hailed as being the engineer who created the original Radio Caroline on board the mv Fredericia.
We discovered that this claim is a total lie, but because we only had skeletal knowledge of Arthur Carrington, at first we thought that he was a totally invented character who did not exist in the flesh. We then stumbled upon an authentic reference to this man, albeit totally unrelated to Radio Caroline.
Arthur Carrington was a Marconi employee who was a technical salesman promoting their television cameras which had originating links to RCA licenced research.
Arthur Carrington was not a radio transmitter engineer .
Arthur Carrington did not become a radio transmitter engineer.
Arthur Carrington did not put Radio Caroline on the air from the former mv Fredericia.
So who did, and who was Arthur Carrington?
That is one part of the investigation that we are still working on and documenting.
We soon came to learn more about Arthur Carrington and his camera sales work for Marconi.
In the year 1955 he was publicly named Head of Engineering for ABC-TV - that is the ITA programming contractor for two of the ITA franchised areas.
ITA WAS THE TELEVISION STATION!
Since ITA owned and controlled all of the television transmitters which then leased their programming output to the ITV network of franchised contractors, there was absolutely no transmitter engineering that Arthur Carrington could have been engaged in.
The franchised program contractors were not broadcasting station owners and operators, they were little more than the buyers of time on the ITA stations which then televised their sponsored programming.
This is very confusing British play with words!
Because the program contractors merely leased time on the ITA owned transmitters, they were in fact the British version of long-form sponsored programmers. Whereas in the USA the television stations mostly sold their time in blocks of one hour; half an hour or quarter of an hour - as well as 'spot' commercials, the British version was selling days at a time!
These programmers merely leased time on the ITA owned television transmitters.
The broadcasting organisation was the Independent Television Authority.
What is overlooked completely is the fact that ITA was a transmitting organization that leased all of its air time to these franchises. There were in fact just two broadcasting operations in the UK: the BBC and the ITA.
ITA was the broadcaster over a hodge-podge ITV collection of transmitters: Originally, ITV was not a broadcasting network.
However, some of the franchised contractors networked their programs to each other.
What a fraud!
In other words, what the government of Winston Churchill (who was half-American), did, was to take the American system of sponsored broadcasting which the Labour Party said was repugnant, and to which half of the Tory Party agreed - but for different reasons, and sell time not in hour long blocs, or half-hour blocs, or quarter-hour blocks, but entire days of the week!
Then, the gall of it all, the Churchill government created a monopoly commercial television operation - run by the government. Its name was ITA. What hypocrisy!
The idea behind Radio Caroline was to aim at the 6 AM to 6 PM locked-inside-their-home housewives who existed back in 1964, and get them to listen to commercial radio and like it and demand it. Then the almost 200 companies waiting in the wings could clamor for licences to operate on land.
So who was behind Radio Caroline?
Well it wasn't an IRA terrorist sympathizer named Ronan O'Rahilly - he was the 'decoy duck' of the giant corporate entities who had pressured Winston Churchill to combat the BBC back in the 50s with what one television program monopoly holder called "a licence to print money". No competition!
Who were these people? They were the big entertainment giants in theater ownership in partnership with the newspaper barons!
Why did Churchill go along with this?
Because in the days of Neville Chamberlain when John Reith controlled the BBC, Reith had kept Churchill off the domestic British airwaves. So Churchill used the American shortwave commercial stations to beam his voice back into Britain, and he also used at least one of Captain Plugge's commercial continental radio stations to do the same thing before World War II.
But to understand any of this you have to understand this:
Once you know where Jocelyn Stevens fits in with his political views, then you understand where Jocelyn Stevens fits in with the drive for commercial television and radio broadcasting and why Princess Margaret, the "rebel Royal" became its figurehead. They were not 'anti-Establishment', they were 'The Establishment', only they were not that faction of it that held the power!
To understand Jocelyn Stevens and his pals you have to understand what he thought about Suez. One thing that Jocelyn Stevens was not was an IRA terrorist sympathizer, but he used Ronan O'Rahilly like a "useful fool".
Once the 'game' ended in 1967, Jocelyn Stevens moved on and Ronan O'Rahilly was revealed for what he was: a leach and a bag of wind. His followers did all the work and paid for it with their money, if the funds could not be stolen from elsewhere.
But let's go back to the story of ITA, because that is where we will discover the true life story of Arthur Carrington.
Complicating this understanding is that between the creation of the ITA transmitting operation in 1955 when its first franchised program contractors began putting their programs on the air over the ITA transmitters, and the publication of the Pilkington Committee Report, the ITV programs broadcast as an alternative to BBC-TV programs, were not the same as the operations of ITA-ITV network which then followed. Not only that, but the system then changed again and again.
Now add to that the very murky beginnings of the first franchised program contractors, one of which never got on the air, but whose principals were later named in an official government related report as being part of the founding group behind both Radio Atlanta and Radio Caroline.
If you want to know about Arthur Carrington, you have to know about Marconi television camera development and sales, and you have to know about the events that shaped ITA from 1955 to 1964 when Radio Caroline came on the air.
You also have to know the history of the Pye Group of companies, because the fake CV created for Arthur Carrington by the writers of the fake histories of Radio Caroline, plagiarized the actual qualifications of a number of people working for or with the Pye Group of companies!
Arthur Carrington could have been useful in equipping a Caroline Television studio with cameras - had it come on the air in 1964, but it did not. Before you wonder if the later mention of Caroline Television was connected to Arthur Carrington, it was not, because Caroline Television was another invented myth spun by Ronan O'Rahilly - it was a hoax wrapped around a theft for which one of the criminals was convicted in a London court room!
Our focus is upon Arthur Carrington as a Marconi trained technical salesman for Marconi television cameras. That was his expertise which involved him in demonstrations for South African; Canadian and Irish authorities who were contemplating purchase of Marconi television cameras.
Now look at all the magazine articles and books out there making claims about Arthur Carrington: they are all fake, and therein begins the angst of the trolls of "loving awareness". Because when the dominoes begin to fall with the destruction of the Carrington hoax, they also sweep away the myths of Ronan O'Rahilly who the cultists have turned into their own 'god'.
There is no kind way to say it, other than to name it as an investigative act of journalism: those writers about Radio Caroline have perpetrated a fraud about their own work and the story of Radio Caroline. This factor creates a "them" and a "us" - but not forgetting the silent few who are the fence-sitters and without their cooperation we could never have made the breakthroughs that we have made, and are still making.
We will present what we now know about the life and times of Arthur Carrington as a part of our BioFrag series, very soon.
Now back to the title of today's Blog. I will parody our response to its dichotomy:
Dear Little Trolls,
Don't you cry;
You'll be full common-sensical
Bye and bye.
[On second thought, maybe that is asking too much.]
