If you examine previous editions of this Blog, you will discover that we have previously reported a lot more about Charles Edward Ross and his youngest son Ian. But on today's Blog we will explode the mythological storyline (as repeatedly told), that puts Ian Cowper Ross together with Christopher Moore and Ronan O'Rahilly in the home of Charles and Phyllis at Hindhead. That is when and where they supposedly asked for money to start 'Radio Caroline'. But as we have also repeatedly shown, that just did not happen.
Since the latest dumping of nonsense on the public took place at the hands Paul Alexander Rusling (who did so to dupe his gullible audience into buying his vanity publication), we will use it as the example here. It is not as if Paul Alexander Rusling did not know better: he did.
In fact Paul Alexander Rusling paid two personal visits to our satellite library base in Falkirk, Scotland in order to discuss the history of 'Radio Caroline' - without explaining his ulterior motives in doing so. In protest, after being exposed, he sent us a string of emails in which he attempted to justify his actions.
Well now his escapade is blowing up in his face, because we will explain in detail that what Paul Alexander Rusling wrote, is sheer rubbish. We conclude from his own words to us, that he published his rubbish to swindle his gullible audience, and those buyers should now be demanding a refund having been sold a book under false pretenses!
In the Index to 'The Radio Caroline Bible', Rusling has listed two pages relating to "Ross, Charles", and this is what Paul Alexander Rusling has written:
On page 51 in his second paragraph Rusling states that Charles Edward Ross: "had done well in the City of London; while never wearing the traditional bowler hat, nor being a member of the Establishment, he did mix with lots of stockbrokers and money people." But the facts show that Charles Edward Ross was not a stockbroker - but a car salesman for the Birmingham-based Jensen car company!
In his fourth paragraph on this same page, Rusling states that: "While Ross senior's Christian name was Charles, many of his close friends and colleagues knew him simply as 'Jimmy'." That sentence is just plain silly on several counts:
1) There is nothing that we know of that defines the religion of Charles Edward Ross. In the USA first names are referred to as 'first names'!
2) Rusling wrote that his first name "WAS" Charles. Is Rusling implying that Charles changed his first name? We know of nothing to support such an idea!
3) Rusling claims that for some hitherto inexplicable reason, a person named Charles is not called Charlie, but Jimmy by his friends!
However, we know and you also now know why it was necessary to invent a story about 'Jimmy': It was to redirect attention away from Jimmy Deterding, the grandson of the founder of Royal Dutch Shell and on the board of directors of Project Atlanta Limited.
Project Atlanta Limited was the company behind the creation of 'Radio Caroline', and Jimmy Deterding was on its board of directors in order to protect other financial interests that he had. They were connected to contemporary developments at Bacton, which at the time was located just down the coast from Jimmy Deterding's palatial Norfolk estate near Holt.
There was only one primary operating company behind 'Radio Caroline' and that company was Project Atlanta Limited!
Rusling, on his page 51 continues in paragraph five with more nonsense: "The near rabid enthusiasm of Ian and Ronan encouraged Ross Senior to make a few phone calls that night. One was to his pal Jocelyn Stevens, the founder of Queen magazine, who was a wealthy and well-connected media baron."
While Ronan O'Rahilly could be equated with a rabid dog, there is nothing to suggest that car salesman Charles Edward Ross even knew Jocelyn Stevens.
Furthermore, Jocelyn Stevens was not "the founder of Queen magazine"!
Rusling tosses out words without giving thought to their definitive meanings.
Stevens bought 'Queen' magazine from a previous publisher, but the magazine itself began publication back in 1861 during the reign of Queen Victoria. Jocelyn Stevens was born in the year 1932, and by then, 'Queen' magazine had already published in many editions.
While Jocelyn Stevens did own a small group of publications, he was not a "media baron" which is defined as being a person of the caliber of a Hearst; Beaverbrook or Murdoch. Jocelyn Stevens had assembled a trade newspaper and a few specialty magazines under his control. His company did not even have the capacity to print what he was publishing!
This mythology, or cocoon of interlocking lies spun by Rusling, does not stop on his page 51, they continue in the same vein through to the end of his Chapter 4 on page 57, which brings in a variety of individuals, and they also need to be untangled from his garbled mess.
Tomorrow we will continue these revelations by exposing the insanity of the Caroline cult that has been fostered by Rusling's 'bible'.
