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?
