Tories! Tories! Tories!

Nadine Dorries misleads Parliament about her relationship with Andy Rayment

Short and sweet, folks. This is the tangled web one weaves…

Nadine Dorries in a statement to the Parliamentary Standards Committee on 15 October 2013:

“My business partners, who have nothing to do with me personally-he is just a business partner, with his wife-were very clear that, in going into business, they did not want to be brought into the public domain via my political position.”

Nadine Dorries in a statement to the Sunday Mirror on 17 November 2013:

“Andy and Ann Rayment are two of my closest friends.”

Ouch. Dorries has form for showing contempt to Parliament, but this example’s so clear, it’s going to sting like a paper-cut between the fingers.

Changes

Hi everyone. I am sorry about the extended absences before and after Christmas.

I’d like to begin today with a belated review of this very important book by Bob & Sue Firth:

I Made My Excuses and Stayed (buy here) – In rural Dorset Bob and Sue Firth were running a successful Bed and Breakfast establishment with a twist. It was a naturist establishment. The couple were also professional masseurs offering therapeutic massage to non-residents as well as guests. All was going smoothly until they accepted a booking from a man calling himself ‘Neville’. Naively, the couple were taken in by this character who, using subterfuge, bribed them into making love in his presence. Unfortunately, ‘Neville’ turned out to be an undercover reporter, Neville Thurlbeck, for the News of the World! Believing he was about to uncover a juicy story, but finding that no such story existed, he set about fabricating a two page spread from his own imagination for the Sunday tabloid. But what ‘Neville’ didn’t realise was that the couple, suspicious of his intentions, had captured his escapades on a hidden video camera. The extraordinary story documents Bob and Sue’s rollercoaster of emotions and their adventures against overwhelming odds to set the record straight.

If I have a criticism of the book, it is that frequently we are asked to depart from the core narrative so we might get to know more about Bob & Sue. This is to be expected; they have just been through a brutally dehumanising process that few of us would be able to cope with at all, and I get the sense that this is one of their coping mechanisms (i.e. in that they would like the reader to recognise that they are not the monsters they have made out to be, even though this should be immediately obvious to any reasonable person).

That said, the book contains so much of value to anyone with any interest in the current debate about media standards that I say without hesitation it is required reading (for Leveson junkies especially so).

First, the book lays bare the lie that one can simply take civil action to correct matters if they are monstered by a certain tabloid newspaper or any other publisher of a similar size/standard. When they seek to resist the introduction of anything approaching accountability, unscrupulous publishers will claim that celebrities, politicians and even the great unwashed can simply sue if the newspaper ‘gets things wrong’, but this is so far from the truth it is laughable. Bob & Sue Firth had Neville Thurlbeck bang to rights, and yet still his newspaper sided with him and managed to successfully avoid any repercussions themselves.

Further, the book repeatedly documents/reveals the mechanics of a core technique used by tabloid ‘journalists’ that has since been adopted and evolved by an increasing number of imitators.

Here’s the passage that I found most enlightening, especially given my own experiences. It relates the moment when the Firths get in contact with another victim of tabloid fabrication, so I got to enjoy my revelation while reading about Sue and Bob experiencing a similar revelation for themselves:

“Well, what did she say?

“Well, it’s amazing… the similarities to the way we were set up… the ‘inaudible’ tapes supplied to the police. Thurlbeck pushing for a police investigation. The grain of truth to the story and the fabrication of the bulk of the story…”

I am here to tell you that, typically, police will play along with this game even to the extent that they will refuse to investigate evidence that has been falsified specifically for their benefit (i.e. where you or I might expect to see some concern about a potential conspiracy to pervert the course of justice). They either remain happily in bed with specific titles/publishers/individuals or are so concerned about a perceived ability to interfere with operational capacity that they will allow false/falsified statements made on behalf of police to stand uncorrected/unaddressed, as they see it as the lesser of two evils.

(I was even informed by one senior police officer – I won’t say which force – who said that they would not be pursuing certain parties for wasting police time, because those parties had not wasted enough police time for it to be worth their time to pursue it. Nice.)

It is this technique of lying on behalf of police that causes me the most concern, not least because I have been attacked with this exact same technique on multiple occasions since 2006, and in an uninterrupted/overlapping sequence since 2009, pretty much from the moment when they convinced a man to smear me as a convicted child rapist (over 100 times), then watched him get away with it.

I am repeatedly assured by police that it is not a criminal/prosecutable act, but no police force that I have asked (so far) will go on the record about that.

Perhaps they are concerned about what might happen if too many people knew that they could tell an outright lie of behalf of a police officer, a police department or a police force without fear of legal consequence… but we are already at a point where this is causing considerable and growing harm to the public and corruption of their authority.

Allow me to show you how/why…

Witness in this example how NOTW used the arrest of a disturbed woman to pretend that it verified a crucial claim they made about an event that never took place (background: this was during their disgraceful handling of the Milly Dowler kidnap and murder). Deceits like this become commonplace once a publisher/editor learns that they can lie on behalf of police without fear of consequence (i.e. in much the same way as when learn they can lie to the PCC without fear of consequence).

Worse, tabloids have for years sought to manipulate police into investigating, arresting or prosecuting ideological opponents, and most have discovered over time that they can say pretty much anything they like about their target once they are prosecuted; this trigger nearly always brings the PCC onside, and the target is more often than not occupied with the matter of prosecution and in no position to take on the weight of an added civil action against a newspaper, even if they have the means.

Others in the world of tabloid standards have discovered that you don’t even need to have anyone prosecuted; you can simply lie outright about police investigations and actions that never took place, and (depending on who you are, I suspect) police won’t say or do a damn thing about it.

Here’s a classic technique: the ‘journalist’ calls the police and alleges their target is guilty of a crime. An investigation will usually begin – even though the target is not yet a suspect and probably never will be – but from this point on, all the ‘journalist’ has to do to elongate the period of time which they can safely claim their target is under investigation by police is dodge a few phone calls and/or pretend to be away.

The latter half of this technique appears to have become less common over time as participating parties have discovered that you can also lie about the outcome of an investigation with little fear of consequence.

In my experience it is this technique that has been observed and adopted most frequently by outsiders who seek the favour/influence of these tabloids and other fringe elements (including has-beens and wannabes). Most often it is fronted by an anonymous account, but some people have invested so deeply in it as to do it in their own name (not that this stops them from engaging in further/worse acts anonymously).

There’s a kind of logic to this that’s apparent once you consider the type of person who is doing it; an accusation on behalf of police carries its own authority and credibility, and the people who rely on them to attack their political enemies invariably lack both.

Of course, one of the reasons these lies carry so much authority and credibility is that most people assume that you can’t make claims like this on behalf of police without consequence… but you can.

I have determined that an attempt to investigate and correct this state of affairs is the best use of my time in terms of political campaigning; it has been used to undermine anything of consequence I may have attempted before (I have as a result been accused of everything from hacking computers to stalking women to raping children).

All other content on Bloggerheads will be the fun/educational material that has been held over while I wasted time placing faith in the criminal justice system as it stands.

The way I see it, the worst that can happen is that even if police/others resist change, the public will be informed of the problem to the extent that accusations like this will carry less weight, leading to an improved situation for all present/future victims of this behaviour.

Something has to change; some of the most corrupt people in our society are appropriating and undermining the authority of police in an attempt to damage political/ideological targets, and many of them go to such an extent that they seek to use such lies to stir up mobs and trigger vigilante behaviour. Lies of this type have even been used to influence the Prime Minister.

On the basis of claims made specially on behalf of three police forces, I have been subjected to multiple threats of violence, and many, many recent threats to visit my home or workplace (and if police ever said anything to any of these people about that, antagonists quickly adapted by offering to share my itinerary with “victims” who asked for it).

Speaking for myself, I am concerned enough about recent claims that I run a child sex ring from my home to do something about this, even in the face of extraordinary harassment.

Not all of us have the resources/connections of Lord McAlpine, but I see the most constructive path to be a campaign for awareness, then (potentially) a change in the law. If I fail at the latter, I will at least have achieved the former to some extent.

Grant Shapps is invited to explain recently-deleted text by ‘Sebastian Fox’ of HowToCorp

We begin today with a hat-tip to data spotter @jolyonjenkins. I urge you to listen to his highly relevant report for BBC Radio 4; Jolyon has been looking into exactly the kind of ‘get rich quick’ spivvery that HowToCorp has been engaging in, and he recently brought to my attention the presence/activities of ‘Sebastian Fox’ in an internet marketing forum hosted at warriorforum.com

Putting aside for a moment those serious unanswered questions about how this product is/was sold (as ‘Michael Green’, Shapps describes something called ‘Joint Level Partners’ in a manner suggesting that his is some form of ‘multi level marketing’ scheme, more commonly known as a ‘pyramid scheme’), here/today I want to focus on the legitimacy of the lead product itself.

The following are two different captures of the same discussion thread at warriorforum.com;

BEFORE: HowToCorp discuss ‘TrafficPaymaster’ at WarriorForum – Thread #1 (Sep 2012 version)

AFTER: HowToCorp discuss ‘TrafficPaymaster’ at WarriorForum – Thread #1 (Oct 2012 version)

What you will notice first is that all mention of detail of the product has been removed on the pretence that the product is now “only available to existing clients”.

There has been a pattern of this kind of behaviour from HowToCorp in response to scrutiny. As Grant Shapps has been assuring the public that everything is above board at HowToCorp, someone has been cleansing the web of visible traces of what he/HowToCorp have been up to; this has included changing the settings/preferences of several domains in order to remove any trace of them from the Web Archive.

There is a lot more detail in the 28 September version to be noted and discussed (as with my earlier/initial post about Wikipedia edits, it is a treasure trove of delights for other bloggers/journalists) but a key point I wish to highlight is ‘Sebastian Fox’ (Grant’s wife) openly bragging about how the product is designed to outwit Google rather than actually meet its content requirements, even after a now-famous update specifically designed to address the problem of junk and/or misappropriated content:

People who say that “Google is catching up with spun articles” simply don’t understand how search engines operate.

Take these two sentences for example:

1. She walked along the road and before long she reached the corner.
2. Strolling along the street she quickly reached the street corner.

Question…

Which of the two sentences above is the original unspun version?

Answer…

Neither. They’re both spun!

The point is that a search engine has absolutely no way of knowing whether a piece of content is “original” or not.

We use TheBestSpinner as our API in TrafficPaymaster. It’s as good as article spinning gets. And it’s way better than is required for a search engine ranking.

TrafficPaymaster | Where Will You Send Your Web Traffic Roadblock?

The patronising lecture about search engines is 100% horse hockey, by the way, but what really matters here is that something that is normally very difficult to prove – intent – is very clear.

For all their talk about this product being an alternative to cheating, it is clearly designed to cheat Google and by extension their users, and hard working creators of original content (the system appropriates content written by other people and falsely presents it as original copy).

I would very much like to hear the Tory party chairman Grant Shapps and/or his wife resolve their demonstrable intent with issues such as copyright infringement especially, but – happily – HowToCorp’s position on cheating Google is already crystal clear; it doesn’t count if you don’t get caught!

Here’s another cleansed thread including incriminating data that HowToCorp have tried to erase, and an extract from same. Check out the text I have highlighted in bold:

Re: TrafficPaymaster can send you NEW traffic in 2 hours!

Hi Sandy,

Google may or may not like a particular approach, but the real question is whether there are any signs about how a page has been created. If the answer is no, well then it doesn’t much matter what Google officially thinks.

And that’s where pages produced by TrafficPaymaster are completely different from other WordPress auto-blogging packages. TPM doesn’t produce blog pages at all. In fact these are regular HTML pages which aren’t based on other blog software.

So there’s nothing that distinguishes pages produced by TrafficPaymaster from pages produced by you.

And that’s really the key to the success of TrafficPaymaster | Where Will You Send Your Web Traffic Roadblock?

Check out the TrafficPaymaster blog for loads more detail, feedback and success stories… TrafficPaymaster | Where Will You Send Your Web Traffic Roadblock?

Seb.

Summary: It doesn’t matter what Google thinks; if we can fool it into thinking the content is legitimate, we will have met their requirements for legitimate content. Genius!

What is most incredible about this attitude is how liberating it is. It doesn’t matter how fast you drive; so long as traffic cops/cameras don’t clock you doing it, you’re OK. Further, while police and people generally often frown on burglary officially, so long as no-one catches you coming, going or taking, no offence has been committed. Brilliant, eh? One wonders how much Mr & Mrs Shapps use this thinking outside of their business interests.

HowToCorp’s Michael Green & The 20/20 Challenge

I’ve just watched Michael Green Sebastian Fox Grant Shapps on #BBCQT and I find myself awe-struck by his chutzpa. I mean, I knew he’d have no choice but to lie to some extent, but to pretend that some irrelevant edits on his Wikipedia page undermine anything published recently about his business interests is extraordinary!

Anyway, I wasn’t going to stand by and allow Grant to hide crucial data from the public while pretending everything’s above board and ship shape and tickety-boo and cleared by the ASA and what have you, so here for your reading pleasure is the full front-page pitch for Michael Green’s 20/20 Challenge; a sales vehicle for his TrafficPaymaster product. To be clear, this is the ‘$20K in 20 days or your money back’ offer that Grant would have you think was being described inaccurately in some quarters. I thought it would be for the best if we could all read the actual text as published and decide for ourselves.

On the subject of that product or any other HowToCorp product that deals/dealt with success in/via search engines, I happen to be a position where I know that Grant Shapps recognises my expertise in this field, so I will ask here, ever so politely in front of all of you nice people, if he might allow me to review his TrafficPaymaster product and/or any of his products that deal/dealt with SEO.

In the meantime, while we wait for Grant’s reply, here’s what he was promising back before Michael Green became his wife. Enjoy.

At last! A simple… no fuss and proven approach to making money online…

Dear Friend,

Let me ask you something…

What would you do with $20,000 in your bank account in just 20 Days time?

Obviously it’s entirely up to you, but I’ve been surfing the net and here are a few ideas…

You could buy this brand new fuel efficient, environment friendly hybrid Toyota Prius for just $20,419 [okay, you'll have to find the extra $419 -- hint: run this program I'm about to tell you about for an extra day or two].
At 60 miles per gallon and a range of 714 miles on a full tank, it’s no wonder people rave about this remarkable vehicle. So imagine having the money in your bank account to buy one of these money saving gems in just 20 Days time!

Price $20,419

Or maybe you’d prefer to go on a luxury vacation? Hmm, now let’s see for $20k you could go somewhere pretty damn exotic. And obviously you’ll want to do your own research, but how about these lavish surroundings that you could enjoy without stress next month with $20,000 tucked away in your bank account.

Price $20,000/week

This is just one real-life example of what you could do.
Stay in an exquisitely furnished, sophisticated five-bedroom colonial home in Edgartown village with heated luxury pool. Spacious bedrooms, gourmet kitchen, gracious living areas and central air conditioning to cater for your comfort.

At $20,000 for just one week’s rental, it’s not the sort of thing you’d do at a drop of a hat, but if you could earn $20,000 in just 20 Days — well then why wouldn’t you take a well-earned break and relax in these comfortable surroundings?

But Is Earning $20,000 In 20 Days Actually Realistic?

You bet… and in a moment I’m going to show you how almost anyone can do this. And best of all, you don’t even need to have your own product (as of this very moment). Oh, plus you’ll only need to do this very much part-time over a 20 day period (or you can take longer to complete it if you prefer — I provide the timetable, but you can extend it out as you like).

Better still… this is a completely tried and tested system. And in a moment I’ll even show you the evidence!

But first, let’s just check what else you could do with your $20,000? Back to vacations and I’ve found a luxury cruise that might just take your fancy.

Now you may have been cruising before, but this is something completely different. Every room on this 700 guest ship has a balcony and dining is by the famed Le Cordon Bleu® of Paris.
In fact, this is one of the most spacious cruise ships afloat with her staff to guest ratio of 1 to 1.6 providing the highest level of personal service in the six-star tradition of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. For $20,000, it’s a special vacation that you’ll never forget!

Price? Well you’ll have no trouble spending your
$20,000 on this six-star cruise liner

Or perhaps you’d like to pursue your own sport or hobby, using your $20,000 towards whatever takes your fancy. Again, I’ve lined up some suggestions, but you’ll know best…

$20,000 can buy you a pre-owned Cessna 150 aircraft.

$20,000 can buy a sports boat to enjoy life.

$20,000 could help you own and keep a horse.

$20,000 could pay for a memorable ski vacation.

$20,000 down payment towards a house or car.

Spend Your $20,000 As You Like
Because The Choice Is Completely Yours…

By now you’ve probably got the idea. You can use your $20,000 for whatever you like. Buy yourself (or the kids) an education, put $20,000 down towards a House or Car. Donate some or all of your newly earned wealth to your favorite charity. Just fill in your own dream below:

Type in your own $20k dream in the box below as a reminder about how you’ll spend the money!

I’ve got to tell you that one of the great secrets to making money online is to actually know what you’ll do with it once it has been earned. By filling out the box above, you’ll help to define your own dreams and goals and in the process you’ll dramatically increase your chance of success with The 20/20 Challenge toolkit.

Once you’ve completed the box above, please carry on reading below…

Who Else Wants To Put $20k
In Their Bank Account In The Next 20 Days?

The problem with most internet marketing programs is that it’s very hard to know whether they actually follow the right money-making strategy. This 20/20 Challenge is completely different.

Why?

Because it actually works. And I can prove it!

You see most internet marketing products revolve around some sort of “get-rich-quick” scheme. Often as not, they’re based around ill-thought-through concepts which have been stolen from other marketers.

This program is completely different. Introducing The 20/20 Challenge Toolkit:

“This Extraordinary New Toolkit From Michael Green
Will Earn You $20,000
Within The Next 20 Days.”

…Or You Can Get Your Money Back!

Now before you dismiss this as sounding “too good to be true”, check out the detail below to get your head around how The 20/20 Challenge will benefit you:

It’s absolutely true. You could realistically haul in $20,000 within just 20 Days!

You’ll be using a tried and tested approach which actually works. I’ll even provide a glimpse of the day by day program at the heart of this system.

The system works from a standing start. No existing product, qualifications or specific skills required. Note: You will want to be computer literate enough to use a computer, create a webpage and understand how to FTP files to commercial server space. In other words, have the first clue about using the internet.

Crazy! Launch your own quality product (without ever having to write or program a single word). Yep, it’s absolutely true and I’ll show you how inside.

This is a self-contained toolkit. It includes absolutely everything you’ll need to succeed. With the only exception being a float of around ten bucks and a domain and webserver space.

Be admired as an expert or “guru” for your work. Sshhh. No need to mention that you didn’t create the product you’re about to sell to great popular acclaim J

Works in just 20 Days even if you only work on it part-time. Plus it’s completely flexible and you can pick and choose when you work on the system.

You can take longer than 20 Days if you prefer and either way you can slot The 20/20 Challenge project around the rest of your life — so there’s no need to feel rushed about achieving your own personal objectives, once you own this toolkit.

Ongoing earnings! Although the system is designed to net you $20,000 within 20 Days (assuming you follow it), there’s nothing which stops the set up from continuing to generate revenue for evermore. Imagine this. An ongoing passive form of income for years to come!

Spend the money as you like! That’s right. I can tell you how to earn the cash. I can even drum up some ideas above about how you might like to spend it. But ultimately the choice about how you spend the money is entirely yours.

Actually earn any amount of money. Yep, that’s right. The 20/20 Challenge targets $20k in 20 Days, but in reality there’s nothing to stop you from earning two or three times that amount using the exact same formula. I have and I’ll show you how to make it happen for you!
Stop Press! Having used the toolkit once to earn your targeted $20k, you can simply use it again to earn another $20k from scratch. Oh, and then you can use it again… and again… and again… and…

Example Of Your Day-By-Day
Cash-Generating Schedule…

Unlike other internet marketing packages which make some vague promises about how you might make some money through your online activities, my 20/20 Challenge toolkit actually gives you a day-by-day program to follow.

Click here to review the full 20 Days schedule.

And while nobody can say precisely where you’ll be on any given day during the program, the table on the left gives a reasonable overview of what you might reasonably expect.

So as you can see, The 20/20 Challenge includes a complete schedule of where you might expect to be with your money-making venture on each on the 20 Days during the program. But what this table doesn’t reveal is that the income generation doesn’t stop at day 20. It just keeps going on and on…

But It Doesn’t Stop At Day 20 -
…Because Your Income Will Continue To Grow!

Just because you’ve reached Day 20 and your $20,000 earnings target, that doesn’t mean that the tap suddenly turns off. Far from it in fact! Perhaps I should explain…

What The 20/20 Challenge does for you is to provide a straightforward approach designed to rake in $20k within 20 Days, but that’s not the end of the story.

Having successfully completed the program everything remains in place and there’s no reason why the sales won’t just keep on coming. In fact my last product called Traffic Czar used The 20/20 Challenge approach and despite the 20 day promotion now being over, I still make ongoing sales. So what you have is an ongoing passive form of income that simply doesn’t stop just because you’ve reached your $20,000 goal.

Actually this couldn’t be easier, but before you go thinking that it’s just too good to be true, check out my real-life example which easily eclipsed the $20k+ target.

And Here’s Yet More Evidence That This Approach
Really Does Work And That You Too Can Bust
Through The $20,000 Target…

In April 2007 I added a new product to my popular ‘How To’ range and called it Traffic Czar.

The product was produced to categorically prove that The 20/20 Challenge system really does work like clockwork. And here are the results…

On the left is a product that I developed and marketed using The 20/20 Challenge system.

That’s right… in just 20 Days, Traffic Czar generated $24,823.00 in pure profit. But then by simply leaving the website up and running that profit-figure continued to grow.

… By Day 37 the toolkit had generated $30,930.00 profit!

And just in case you’re still even just a tiny bit sceptical, I’ve included the full sales data below:

Still want to see even more proof? No problem. You can download my full Excel Sales Spreadsheet here.

“But Won’t I Need My Own Product
To Succeed Online?”

You’re right that virtually every successful online entrepreneur has his or her own product to sell. And The 20/20 Challenge is actually no different.

BUT…

Unlike every other ‘How To’ program, The 20/20 Challenge doesn’t actually require you to personally create your own product. How come?

Well there are literally thousands of sources out there for products which are already complete and just looking for someone to market them. Get this right and you can make money by applying simple marketing techniques.

But before you go imagining that this is therefore some kind of affiliate marketing opportunity… stop right there!

It’s not…

With this toolkit you will own and promote your very OWN product, because that’s the only way to make real money online. It’s just that you won’t have to create it yourself!

I’ll Show You Where To Get Your Own
Products, Without Ever Having To Write A Word
Or Learn A Single Line Of Programming Code!

That’s right… someone else will actually do the work for you. In fact incredibly they’ve already done that work in advance and the package that’s going to earn you $20k in 20 Days is already sitting waiting for you!

So now all you need to do is turn up, choose which product you’d like to market, make it your own by branding it as yours (don’t worry, I provide full detailed instructions about how to do this) and then market your own product to a ready-and-waiting marketplace!

It really couldn’t be easier.

But before you go imagining that this is all too good to be true, just remember that this is precisely the route that I’ve already taken and proven with my own Traffic Czar toolkit. The bottom line is that this approach works as the evidence above proves.

So how is it done?

Well nowadays there’s an abundance of bright and intelligent writers and programmers out there who spend all their time generating impressive scripts, source code, software and books.

Typically these clever people might be in Eastern Europe and beyond.

They spend their time developing these first-class resources, but typically then never actually get around to marketing the products. Instead they allow their work to be rebranded via what’s known as Private Label Rights and generally that’s the last anyone sees or hears of their truly excellent work.

Now since they’ve lost interest in the project, you have the opportunity to pick up where they left off. By using Private Label Rights (or PLR) resources and combining them with a rebranding approach that I’ve devised, plus some great marketing that I’ll show you, you can take what might otherwise be mistaken as apparently worthless products and turn them into huge money-spinners. And I mean really BIG!

The result… you can earn $20,000 (or more) in as little as 20 Days!

“But Won’t Buying The Full Rights
Cost Me An Absolute Fortune?”

No. Far from it when you know where to look. In fact it’s likely to cost you as little as $1.99 and almost never more than 5 bucks or so to own the kind of high-quality products you need in order to earn over $20,000 in just 20 Days. Now how about that for ROI?

And remember. You’re not going to have to write a word or program a single line of code for yourself, but you will need to take the raw product and have it branded as yours.

If you’re fairly computer literate then you might choose to carry out the rebrand yourself. If not (and this is the option that I prefer and use), then you’ll have someone else rebrand the product for you. But don’t worry about that because I’ll provide you with the full detailed instructions and show you precisely how to go about making a 2 buck purchase into a $20,000 mini-fortune!

The 20/20 Challenge Contains A Simple
Day-By-Day Approach To Making Money

Because you’ll want to make your $20,000 by the end of the 20 day program, I’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure your personal success and detailed the entire program.

On the left you can see a copy of The 20/20 Challenge program which comes with this toolkit and details precisely what should be happening on a day-to-day basis (by the way — the right hand column keeps your running accumulative total).

But perhaps the most exciting thing about this program is that it is a part-time program, designed to fit around your busy lifestyle. If you want to take longer than 20 Days to complete the program then that’s fine. But even if you work to just 20 Days, most of the time it still isn’t full time work (not even close in fact). So this will fit around your existing work and life.

Here’s What You’ll Get With
The 20/20 Challenge Toolkit System

The chances are that by now you’d like to know exactly what to expect from this unique toolkit, so here’s where I’m going to let you get a glimpse of the inside track.

The most important thing to know is that with The 20/20 Challenge you won’t be expected to make large additional investments or purchases after you’ve got your hands on this toolkit. In other words, this is not a ‘sellathon’ for other products that you’ll require to succeed. There’s no big so called ‘back-end’ sale. I’m including everything you need in the toolkit itself.

In fact I’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure that you’ll get everything you need to succeed with this package. However, you should be aware that you’ll need a couple of inexpensive additions including a domain name, some commercial webspace and a few dollars in change to buy some carefully chosen Private Label Rights (PLR) products — I’ll show you where to find them for as little as 2 bucks! — and possibly some money to spend with a service like Elance or similar (don’t worry I explain this in great detail and you might actually handle this part yourself). If you do go down the Elance route (which is what I did), then you could expect an additional cost of around $30 to $50 probably for a number of products rebranded ($50 bought me 5 excellent rebrands done for example).

I hope that you’ll agree with me that none of these investments is out of kilter with earning $20,000+ online within just 20 Days. But if you’d prefer not to invest anything at all in your future, then click away right now!

Ah, you’re still here, so let’s take a look at what I’ll be showing you inside The 20/20 Challenge Toolkit.

Now you’ve learned the ropes, making your first $20,000 in 20 Days, just repeat as frequently as you like.

So What Have You Got To Lose?

Let’s face it. An opportunity to earn $20,000 in 20 Days doesn’t come along very often (perhaps never again in your lifetime) and as you sit there reading this you have two options:

1
Ignore this by clicking away to the next website. Result? You definitely won’t make $20,000 through this program in the 20 Days after you get your hands on the toolkit.

2
Take positive action and find out whether you’re still in time to own a copy of this strictly limited availability 20/20 Challenge package.

And the crazy reality of the situation is that as of this moment, you have absolutely nothing to lose by giving this a go!

That’s because the system is 100% guaranteed and if you decide that it doesn’t work for you, well then that’s your decision and judgement, not mine. I won’t be asking you for evidence or proof as to what really happened. In fact I’m prepared to make this straightforward pledge and put it here in black and white for you:

But This Sounds So Simple That There’s
Got To Be A Catch — Will I Be Able To Afford
The 20/20 Challenge Toolkit?

First of all you need to understand that just like anything else in life, this program isn’t going to work for you if you simply pick up a copy and then leave it lying there. Ownership alone isn’t going to make you money!

But what makes The 20/20 Challenge such a remarkable package is that if you’re successful in getting hold of a copy and you simply follow the day-by-day instructions, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to replicate the success that others are having and make at least $20,000 in 20 Days.

So how much should a package like this cost?

Well we know the potential income is $20,000, but that’s only over 20 Days and there are two other factors we need to bear in mind.

1
As you’ve seen from my actual profit example above, this approach will continue to earn you money after 20 Days (it earned me $30,930 in 37 Days for example) and so the value of the toolkit is obviously greater than $20k.

2
Having earned your first $20k, there’s absolutely nothing to stop you from using The 20/20 Challenge toolkit again… and again… In fact you can keep rolling this program out each month, making the total potential income $20,000 x 12 months or $240,000 from this incredible program!

So here it is…

If you put this toolkit to work then you could repeat the system every month for the next year and potentially net nearly $1/4 million.
Now this isn’t an earnings guarantee and you should read the earnings disclaimer. But that said, we know that this system works because I’ve posted the evidence above. I include day-by-day instructions about every step that you need to take to make the program work for you and on the basis that it could net you a vast fortune this is one set of instructions that must be worth a fair amount.

So what’s a fair price tag for The 20/20 Challenge? Well it’s tempting to sell the system for around $10,000.

That way your Return On Investment would be doubled when you successfully complete the first month of this program and earn $20,000. And in many ways that sounds fair enough.

However, I know that there are some folks out there who simply won’t be able to stump up $10,000 in one go, even though they might be prepared to take the risk. So I’ve contemplated a lower price break…

How about if I cut the purchase price in half and offer this incredible, money-spinning, package for just $5,000? I know that this would mean that many more people would enjoy the benefits of The 20/20 Challenge. And so for a while I’d fixed the price at $5,000. After all, when you set that aside my profit from using the system over just 37 Days, then you’ll see that $5,000 would be great value for money!
My mind was nearly made up with regard to the price point, yet something still continued to play on my mind.

While I know that at $5,000, this toolkit would be worth every penny, I was also pretty certain that this figure would put off some of the very people who I’m most keen to help. So I went back to the drawing board and tried to imagine a price that would allow more people to participate.

How about I charge just 10% of the true $5,000 worth of this toolkit?

That means that you could pick it up for only $500, rather than $5,000. Whoa, now that seems more than fair! Okay, I’ll be giving away a lot of value at a deeply discounted price, but I also understand that some folks won’t be in a position to take the $5k plunge right now, whereas $500 would be plausible.

And that’s it, this toolkit will sell for $497 after the launch offer. That’s a real bargain because as you know the anticipated first 20 Day income is $20,000 and you’ll immediately appreciate the incredible ROI with this toolkit.

So for those who act right this minute (and I mean today Wednesday September 12, 2012Monday September 10, 2012 ), I have an extra-special treat in store.

If you go ahead and order your own copy right this minute, then I’m going to let you have the entire 20/20 Challenge toolkit at half price!

Yes that’s right, rather than paying $497, you’ll pay just $247. But you’ll still receive everything that you’ve just been reading about, plus an incredible extra bonus below, as a reward for acting during this post-launch period.

How come I’m making this one-off offer to you?

Simple. You’ll notice that although I’ve posted my own compelling proof of success on this website (see right hand graphic), but what I want is a few individuals to provide me with their own testimonials once they’ve put this toolkit to good use. So what I’m prepared to do during this post-launch period is let a small number of people get hold of a copy at half-price in return for a testimonial once you’ve encountered the success I’ve been telling you all about.
Here’s my actual Excel Spreadsheet with all the details.

Although I’d appreciate a testimonial, there’s no absolute requirement to provide one. That’s because I want it to come from your heart and as a launch owner you’ll still enjoy all the benefits of the toolkit, plus this very special bonus which won’t automatically be available to full-price purchasers later on.

Act Today Wednesday September 12, 2012Monday September 10, 2012 And I’ll Throw In 10 Products
That You Can Rebrand And Sell Immediately!

That’s right. In addition to getting your hands on this groundbreaking toolkit at 50% discount (only during this post-launch period), I’ll also throw in 10 products that you can immediately take, rebrand and sell as your very own!

Yes, it really is that simple because with the The 20/20 Challenge toolkit, I’ll show you how to earn $20,000 in just 20 Days by taking ownership of a single product, branding it as your own and marketing it. So now imagine what you could do if you actually owned 10 products to use right off the bat!

Remember the system I’m about to teach you enables you to go out and find literally thousands of potential products to take, rebrand and sell. But what I’m about to do here is take away the work and provide you with 10 suitable products, ready to use to make you rich.
But remember, this is a bonus that I’m providing during this launch period and in addition to the 50% discount. It represents an astonishing deal that will be gone if you walk away now. So pick up your copy right away.

Let’s Quickly Recap On Exactly
What’s Included In This Incredible Package

You’ll get everything that you’ll need to succeed with your 20/20 Challenge!

That’s right. You’ll receive The 20/20 Challenge toolkit which includes the valuable owner’s manual, packed with all the detail you need including every single step that you must take to ensure that you achieve your money-making $20k target.

You’ll receive access to The 20/20 Challenge Client Only Forum where help, support and comradeship; even split down into assistance on a day-by-day basis will be available. And you’ll get your own 20 day marketing challenge schedule to keep on your desk or pin on your wall to help you follow the straightforward step-by-step guidance.

Then as a special bonus you’ll also receive 10 ready-to-be-rebranded products, each of which are individually capable of earning you your $20,000 target!

And as a special thank you for acting right away, I’m throwing in yet another secret bonus, which you’ll find out about once you’ve completed your purchase.

Don’t Miss The Boat –
Book Your Copy Right This Minute!

The sad fact is that, much as I’d like to, I can’t allow everyone who would like a copy to get their hands on the remarkable 20/20 Challenge toolkit.

You see, I don’t believe in spreading my secrets too widely and when a program works as effectively as this one and could genuinely sell for $5,000 to $10,000 a time, I’m simply not prepared to let it get out there at this ultra-low launch price for long.

UPDATE – Almost forgot this special treat; a sneak peek behind the scenes of the 20/20 challenge, with all content officially approved by Michael ‘power of veto’ Green:

Behind the scenes of Michael Green’s 20 Day Challenge

-

UPDATE – Via @AnyaPalmer, a part-archive of ‘Michael Green’ products, and an illuminating audio interview!

UPDATE (12pm, 12 Oct) – More illuminating data for you, folks. Let’s start with this quote from Grant Shapps:

Before I was in politics, I used to write business publications under the pen name Michael Green” – Grant Shapps

That’s what Grant Shapps said on BBC Question Time last night when confronted with text describing his now-infamous ’20/20 challenge’.

This is not the first time that Grant has claimed or implied that certain HowToCorp products pre-date his activity as an MP, and I have no regrets blowing this outright lie out of the water.

The entire site for the ’20/20 challenge’ only came into being in August 2007, two years after Shapps became an MP, and that is evidenced by the original registration date of the relevant domain name; the2020challenge.com

Further, when confronted with evidence like this, what Grant likes to do is pretend that his wife has been Michael Green (and/or perhaps ‘Sebastian Fox’) and handling all of the business since 2005.

That’s even easier to refute; here is the unmistakeable voice of Grant Shapps posing as Michael Green in an extended audio interview promoting that same ’20/20 challenge’ that he now pretends was conceived/produced before 2005 (untrue) and/or without his involvement (equally untrue).

Grant Shapps is lying. Grant Shapps is lying shamelessly, and he just did so on national television on a crucial question about his business interests.

Kelvin MacKenzie and the 1988 ‘Brighton: Town of Shame’ editorial

There is a major discussion pending about collusion between police/authorities and the tabloid element that brazenly exploits and corrupts them. I speak not just of Hillsborough but a variety of instances in recent times (example). However, today you will have to settle for some mere fact-checking from this little black duck.

Last night, hundreds of people were on Twitter discussing the merits (or otherwise) of Kelvin MacKenzie, and this graphic turned up of an editorial allegedly penned by MacKenzie in his capacity as editor of The Sun in 1988*:

scan of alleged Kelvin MacKenzie editorial

I used TinEye to locate this instance of the same graphic/editorial, and it cites a local source (Peter Crisp) who would be entirely likely to keep and distribute material like this.

One might simply ask Kelvin MacKenzie and/or someone at The Sun but I expect they’re all very busy hiding under the bed at the moment, so please drop me a line (email), tweet at me (@bloggerheads) or comment (below/reddit) if you think you can help me to determine the authenticity of this editorial.

(Also, drop me a line if you’ve any word on the alleged second coming of Jesus of Nazareth, especially if you know the venue, as I want to book early for a good seat. If I’m going to heckle, I want to do it from the front row.)

-

[*In October 1984 the IRA bombed the Grand Hotel in Brighton during the Tory conference with the intention of assassinating then-PM Margaret Thatcher and/or members of her cabinet. The Tory conference returned to Brighton in 1988.]

[Psst! If you're not in a position to help today, you can still do something nifty on Twitter. Drop @kelvinmackenzie a friendly word; the poor chap's been widely mistaken for a former editor of a certain barrel-scraping tabloid.]

Grant Shapps is still a sock-puppeting loser

I blogged about Grant Shapps a few years ago. Back then, he sought to silence some serious questions about sock puppetry by claiming his YouTube account was hacked, and his final line in the sand was a claim that the alleged hacking incident was being investigated by YouTube/Google. I asked Grant Shapps about that last night. Here is the question he chose not to answer:

You claimed that Google/YouTube launched an investigation into what you alleged to be the hacking of your YouTube account. Nothing ever came of that. Would you care to explain why, and if you ever reported the matter to police?

During that incident I became aware of Grant Shapp’s wider use of alter egos, including ‘Michael Green’ of howtocorp.com (and howtobouncebackfromrecession.com, howtostartaforum.com, howtomarketwithtwitter.com, etc.) but today I’d really like to know more about his relationship with ‘Chuck Champion’ of howtopickupwomennow.com:

howtopickupwomennow.com

Perhaps Grant Shapps will inform us that the connection is ‘merely’ that howtopickupwomennow.com was one of the advertisers on the site savemysurgery.com, but the design, code and marketing and copy styles are identical to his* other ‘get results quickly without really trying’ scams, and his past behaviour (re: sock-puppetry denials) will count against him.

(*Yes, yes, yes. The paperwork shows the business is now in his wife’s name. But the advertising sales copy still live on many sites declares products to be the work of ‘Michael Green’, a “Member of Parliament”.)

Further, even if Grant Shapps can put a convincing amount of distance between himself and ‘Chuck Champion’, he has some serious questions to answer about site reputations he builds as an MP and then goes on to ‘cash in’ so it can be used as a patch on a two-bit ‘content’ farm where keyword-weighted links are sold for money. Shapps cannot pretend not to know what an online reputation is worth; too many of his products rely on teaching people how to falsify one.

I asked Grant Shapps about that last night. Here is the question he chose not to answer:

Where precisely do you declare the earnings from the keyword-weighted promotional links hosted on savemysurgery.com, and would you care to name any other party-political/campaign websites that you were involved in that went on to be exploited commercially in a similar fashion?

If I weren’t so preoccupied with other matters right now, I’d have a slew of other questions for Grant Shapps to read and ignore, but for now I leave you with this trail of scrummy crumbs in the form of yet another question:

Do you deny authorship of any of the following edits to Wikipedia? (note: each page contains a list)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Historyset
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Hackneymarsh
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/217.155.38.72

(Psst! Over to you, Grant. Or Michael. Or Sebastian. Or Chuck. Or whatever your name is today. I’d like us all to be very clear on your view on the use of false identities for commercial and political purposes, just on the off-chance that you’re put in a position where you’re the main point of contact for complaints about sock puppetry from Conservative MPs, fundraisers, activists and what have you. Because I have just such a complaint, and it’s a whopper.)

-

UPDATE (12 Sep) – A considerable amount of time has passed since I put these questions to Grant Shapps, and the lack of any denial (while he was quick to produce a receipt proving he had worn a £4 tie) has cost him dearly. I have been very clear about what is indicitive and what is conclusive, but of course when valid questions are dodged, you will find conclusions being drawn regardless. Hell, I’m one of the people who drew my own conclusions after a few days. However, I should point out that Grant Shapps has now very clearly denied any level of involvement in howtopickupwomennow.com and I’m not only willing to accept this, I am also personally satisfied that there is no significance to the delay in his issuing this denial. I am at present seeking further information about savemysurgery.com, and how/why it was turned into a patch on someone’s content farm carrying an keyword-weighted link to ‘Chuck Champion’ and others, so that question stands, but in my view we are no longer in a place when one can fairly ask Shapps if he is/was ‘Chuck Champion’ of howtopickupwomennow.com and/or carry on as if that question stands unanswered. Cheers all.

Barely-literate passive-aggressive bigot WLTM xenophobic mob. Object: acrimony

I found this letter (embedded below) pinned to the wall of a bus stop shelter in Shalford (Surrey, UK). Further examples have been posted to local community messageboards that are unmarked, suggesting that the ‘pikey’ changes are by someone who agrees with the sentiment, but thinks ‘pikey’ to be a more apt term than ‘gypsy’.

(That said, the repeated/matching error in apostrophe deployment hints at the exciting possibility that this could be the nearest one might hope to get to a signature by the original artist, which would make my sample a collector’s item.)

The myths, distortions and prejudice apparent in this letter from an unknown member of the public remind me of certain campaigning materials local Conservatives have yet to explain (more), and I would dare to suggest the kind of unhealthy outburst apparent in this letter is encouraged by the kind of bigotry and dishonesty that Guildford Conservatives continue to pretend never happens/happened on their watch.

Indeed, some of the serving councillors this open letter targets will know the people/attitudes I speak of and how little they have done to discourage this kind of behaviour and worse from their fellow Conservatives, but I doubt any of them will admit it, even when dealing with the entirely predictable consequences of it.

UPDATE – The incident has now been reported to Surrey Police, who kindly confirmed the appearance of similar notices in other villages, and advised me that Waverley Borough Council were aware.

To: Detective Chief Inspector Steve Vesztrocy, Bedfordshire Police

The following is the full and unedited text of an email sent to the named officer and the media department for Bedfordshire Police in response to their repeated failure/refusal to take action against false allegations made by the Conservative MP Nadine Dorries (and others) against me (and others).

Sir,

I have on multiple occasions requested from Bedfordshire Police the detail of several false, damaging and often downright dangerous allegations made against me, the majority of which have since been proven to be innacurate accounts and gross distortions where they have not been suspected lies if not demonstrable lies. You have shown no interest in any of these findings, despite multiple indicators that you have been lied to by a Member of Parliament who you know damn well has repeatedly gone on to completely misrepresent the outcome of an investigation by your officers for entirely political purposes.

(You even appear unwilling to ask a single question of a third party that would quickly establish that this MP definitely lied to you. An initial failure to ask this question might indicate incompetence; a refusal to ask it stinks of corruption.)

Among the false allegations passed to Bedfordshire Police; fabricated evidence with the obvious intention of give people the false idea that I am clinically psychotic, and a danger to others.

After failing to disclose an instance of this being passed directly to your investigating officer(s) during an investigation, Bedfordshire Police then failed to disclose it again in response to a legitimate subject access request after that investigation, and you now claim that you cannot disclose any detail about its source because of a further investigation.

If this fabricated evidence has any bearing on your current investigation, then why are you not investigating its origins?

If it it not relevant to your current investigation, then on what grounds do you refuse disclosure today?

I believe this evidence has a direct bearing on a current investigation by Surrey Police; it forms part of my complaint, and I would like to know on what grounds you refuse me the data I require to make them fully aware of its significance. This point is epecially important given that Terry Davis appears to have passed it to Surrey Police minus any real context (after making no sincere attempt to determine its origins), and they failed to investigate it as a result.

Like you, Surrey Police also refused to disclose this fabricated evidence to me in response to a subject access request under the Data Protection Act, and had I not pressed the matter, I would never have discovered that Bedfordshire Police were aware of three items of evidence where previously I was only aware of one.

When Terry Davis passed this data to Surrey Police, he said that it was passed to him at the tail end of his investigation; he did not appear to disclose the context in which it was sent, or give any indication about who might have sent it to him. If he did, then Surrey Police have some serious questions to answer about their failure to investigate, but of course I cannot call them on that while you continue to obfuscate.

You should already know the answers to the relevant questions I asked you about this fabricated evidence; I asked them weeks ago. You had no answer then, and today you sound disturbingly like a panicked MP at a certain hustings event.

On that note, I will close by also asking an additional question:

I presented to Terry Davis audio evidence that I specifically advised the Chair of the relevant Flitwick hustings about the broadcast she claimed to have no knowledge of. Can you explain to me why there is no mention of this in the resulting report?

Please be advised that I plan to publish this letter in full at 4pm today if I do not receive a reply that I believe to be earnest and adequate.

Tim Ireland

And so here we are. I got a (one-line) reply, but I do not believe it to be earnest or adequate.

Plus, there’s a bonus punchline; Bedfordshire Police today announced that someone else who made false allegations has been charged with wasting police time and given a fixed penalty notice… but local MP Nadine Dorries has so far got off scot-free. See if you can guess why.

Sir Douglas Morpeth & the corruption of Shamley Green Conservatives

In late 2006, two Conservative activists including an executive with a local fundraising group Guildford Conservatives sought to anonymously smear an opponent as a paedophile, and me as an unfit parent and an undesirable alien with commercial interests in pornography. Their names: Mike Chambers and Dennis Paul.

I complained to Conservative HQ and David Cameron’s office at the time, but – quite incredibly – the matter was referred back to the same body (Guildford Conservatives) for action. Unsurprisingly, the local MP Anne Milton and then-Chairman Jonathan Lord took no action. When confronted about this, Jonathan Lord initially claimed nothing was done because I didn’t put my complaint in writing (!) and later said that the whole matter was addressed to some extent, but only ‘informally’ and ‘off the books’… but he also admitted that essentially nothing was really done about it because local elections were in progress by the time my complaints reached him (in early 2007).

Ultimately, the whole thing was swept under the carpet. Crucially, no signal was sent out to local activists that this kind of conduct would not be tolerated. Worse, Dennis Paul sought to explain the evidence against him with false accusations of criminal behaviour that Mike Chambers has since testified were widely accepted as true in that local circle of Conservative fundraisers.

So it should come as no surprise to you to find that in 2009, two years after what can only be described as a cover-up, almost exactly the same thing happened again, again with me as a target, again involving a fundraising group connected to Anne Milton, and tellingly involving specific/unique claims of criminality put about by Dennis Paul.

Dominic Wightman Dominic Wightman (pictured right), who I have since discovered was then a member of the Conservative Party and an executive member of Shamley Green Conservatives, sought to smear me as a paedophile and then a stalker of women.

I later found out that privately he claimed he acted against me in this way because “Tim Ireland lives 3 villages from me and my local supporters (including the MP [Anne Milton]) want Ireland downed.”

When initially contacted about this, The Conservative Party would not even confirm or deny if Wightman was a member of their party.

Douglas Morpeth similarly refuses to confirm or deny if Wightman was an executive on the Shamley Green Conservatives fundraising committee. Douglas Morpeth further refuses to confirm or deny if he is/was the President/Chairman of the Shamley Green Conservatives fundraising committee, and while he helpfully implies the claims about two heart attacks in 2009 are untrue (see below), he is very vague about this and uses it as an excuse to refuse contact (i.e. as if it is me creating/broadcasting such inaccuracies, and not Mr Wightman).

Some of this reticence is likely something to do with Douglas Morpeth being a retired accountant and knowing exactly how bad it looks when a man serves as an executive on his fundraising committee while being an undischarged bankrupt.

Whether Dominic Wightman ever declared his 2009-2010 bankruptcy to Douglas Morpeth or anyone else on the committee is unknown at this stage, but Morpeth knows now that Wightman was bankrupt back then, and would probably really, really like to avoid talking about it in the future.

Dominic Wightman has since quietly resigned from Shamley Green Conservatives and even let his Conservative membership lapse; he has also stated quite bluntly that he has done the latter so he is better able to attack me and other ‘enemies of Conservatism’. He has since continued his smear campaign, sometimes under his own name, and sometimes through the use of false identities, and sometimes a mix of the two (such as the time he posed as a large black female nurse from Bedford and interviewed himself).

To give you a better idea of the truly insidious nature of Wightman’s accusations, after he was caught smearing me secretly/anonymously, he sent me dozens of emails, repeatedly pressing for a face-to-face meeting so he might explain himself in person, and when I refused and instead pressed him for details by email, he put a letter through my door late one night demanding that I cease contact with him.

That’s where he left his explanation for his previously smearing me as a dangerous paedophile; any attempt by me to ask him about it would result in him instead portraying me as a dangerous stalker. Clever, huh? As with Iain Dale, who sought to gain politically from this same smear, Wightman will sometimes deny his involvement from a safe distance, but he will not dare to discuss any specific evidence and/or answer for his conduct in any detail, and he (like others) has found the accusation of stalking to be very effective on this front.

In fact, his conduct has had a demonstrable influence on the Conservative MP Nadine Dorries, who has not only linked to this man’s website (despite being advised that it included directions to my house), but incorporated many of his smears into her own narrative.

Dorries has since gone on to personally invest so heavily in the ‘stalker’ lie herself that she even incorporated false claims originating from Dominic Wightman in a complaint to Bedfordshire Police. (Both parties have since gone on to make misleading statements about the outcome of that complaint to the extent of pretending that it resulted in a caution, which is entirely untrue.)

Back in 2009, when the evidence first started to emerge that Dominic Wightman was the primary source of multiple smears against me, Wightman simultaneously accused me of harassing him while anonymously attacking me online and repeatedly engineering the repeated publication of my home address (often alongside the false claim that I stalk women). I was kind of alarmed by all this at the time, and I must admit to missing a crucial scrap of evidence:

Douglas Morpeth was, previous to September 2009, listed as a patron of Dominic Wightman’s website, ‘Westminster Journal’, and this reference was quickly removed soon after Wightman knew he had been found out… but what really should have tipped me off was the claim by Wightman that I should not dare contact this man for fear of giving him a fatal heart attack:

“Regards the chap who I appointed Patron of Westminster Journal, Sir Douglas Morpeth, I have mentioned to his family that you are counting down to an attack – this is a particularly pertinent point because, expecting this and come-back from the LTTE for an article due out this next 10 days, I got his family to get him to sign a resignation letter back in April when his health (90′s) started failing. If you want a copy I’ll send it to you. He had a massive coronary in July and had another attack a couple of weeks ago…..I have no doubt there will be massive legal repercussions if he gets mentioned in light of him being on his deathbed.” – Dominic Wightman (Sep 9, 2009)

A witness confirms that Wightman requested the removal of Morpeth’s name from his site, and the reason given was “Morpeth was dying, and his family did not want the name there”… but this request was not sent in April of that year, it happened 3 days before the above email was sent!

It is clear from the timeline and the relevant correspondence that Dominic Wightman urgently sought to remove any reference to Douglas Morpeth as patron from his site before he used that site to launch an extended smear campaign designed to cover up the original smear campaign that he conducted when he thought himself safely anonymous.

It is unknown at this stage if this was a spontaneous attempt to protect Morpeth and/or a wider circle of Conservatives, or if it was something that happened as a result of Morpeth’s direct request because he knew exactly what Wightman was up to.

Years later I was reading through the old correspondence and it finally occurred to me to contact Douglas Morpeth by email and ask him a few questions.

Morpeth wasn’t dying, or dead, by the way… but it would be hard to tell from his initial response to my email. Morpeth initially took no action and offered no reply, but saw fit to forward our private correspondence to others, including Wightman. When pressed for a reply after a month of silence, he was exasperatingly evasive.

Not long after this (the weekend before the CPS inexplicably dropped their case against Wightman after his threats or violence against me), Wightman sought to intimidate me via an anonymous email that implied I would be up on a manslaughter charge should Douglas Morpeth suddenly drop dead as a result of my daring to ask him any further questions.

However, it is with complete confidence and an entirely clear conscience that I publicly accuse Douglas Morpeth of contributing to the corruption of the Shamley Green Conservatives fundraising committee and the subsequent cover-up.

I also challenge Douglas Morpeth to explain his position on entrusting an undischarged bankrupt with cash-handling and other fundraising tasks under his watch.

I further challenge the Conservative minister Anne Milton and the Conservative MP Jonathan Lord to finally take a public stance against the use of dangerous and damaging smears as a political weapon. They do themselves and the public no favours by continuing to allow and exploit multiple instances of false claims of criminality up to and including child rape.

-

PS – Douglas Morpeth lives directly opposite Dominic Wightman’s family home. I’d show you the relevant evidence, but I’m not inclined to publish any details that might be falsely portrayed as my behaving in the same manner as Mr Wightman, who previously broadcast my ex-directory home address and even published specific directions to my house in an effort to intimidate me.

UPDATE – Barthsnotes – May 2011: A Threat From Dominic Wightman

-

UPDATE (11 April) – On 8 April I tracked Douglas Morpeth’s receipt of my email making him aware of this article. He made no effort to communicate any response to me, but less than 24 hours later, I was smeared as a paedophile again (i.e. in the first attack of its kind since the 2009 event). This time the author decided to incorporate my volunteering with local children into this damaging and dangerous lie. Conservative MPs Anne Milton and Jonathan Lord still refuse to attempt to draw this matter to a close by taking a public stand against this kind of conduct. Jeremy Hunt, my local MP, and also a Conservative, refuses to even discuss the possibility of conducting any diplomacy or casework that might draw this matter to a close. I used to wonder why people used the word ‘scum’ next to ‘Tory’ so readily. Those days are long behind me.

-

UPDATE (16 April) – Douglas Morpeth’s only response to all of the above? A vague denial about being in touch with Dominic Wightman recently. Everything else stands unchallenged. Meanwhile, Dominic Wightman has published a series of false claims and implications (while pretending to be someone other than himself, naturally), including the entirely false suggestion that the email I quote above has been fabricated or falsified in some way. In response, I publish the entire email below, including the part where he bragged (not for the first or last time) that he was able to libel me/others without consequence, due to his being an undischarged bankrupt at the time. Further, given that I have never targeted anyone’s family in the way he implies and he later saw fit to broadcast and publish details of my home address alongside entirely false allegations of stalking and extremism, the threat to my family (and that of Richard Bartholomew’s) is quite stark.

Subject: Your lack of writing

Did that two days ago.
While you’re there, we’ll keep family out of this – I have no interest in making yours or Richard’s, or others, feel uncomfortable where they live and I’m sure you don’t mine. This point is particularly pertinent related to 2 untimely deaths regarding Vigil funding (July05 and Nov06) – mentioning either of these blood relatives, either obliquely, will be tantamount to mentioning family and I will respond in kind. “Blood relatives” will do for comment. Mentioning Tom Mills’ ugly sister etc …. totally pointless but others won’t hesitate if you or the lefties mention my family.
Regards the chap who I appointed Patron of Westminster Journal, Sir Douglas Morpeth, I have mentioned to his family that you are counting down to an attack – this is a particularly pertinent point because, expecting this and come-back from the LTTE for an article due out this next 10 days, I got his family to get him to sign a resignation letter back in April when his health (90′s) started failing. If you want a copy I’ll send it to you. He had a massive coronary in July and had another attack a couple of weeks ago…..I have no doubt there will be massive legal repercussions if he gets mentioned in light of him being on his deathbed.
Finally, for all of you, and Murray, I’ll only play the Schillings card and release the Uzbek files if, like Spinbotch and suggestion of financial malpractice, testimony of flawed witnesses is mentioned to insinuate points against me, if unproven emails are aired or if anyone is blatantly libellous. That’s the great thing about Surrey – from one village to the next when you’ve lived here long enough there is always someone willing to help stick the knife in. Remember I’m placed to lose nothing financially.
First statements coming out on Friday.
Have a super day.
Best,
Dom

“Testimony of flawed witnesses” and “unproven emails” refers to Glen Jenvey telling police that he had an accomplice in his attempt to smear me as a convicted paedophile (that he refused to name at the time, but later revealed to be Dominic Wightman), and the evidence that Wightman sent Glen Jenvey my ex-directory home address via email while simultaneously posing as an ally and feeding me damaging material about that same person (some of it genuine, some of it distorted if not falsified). Wightman later based his denial of involvement in the 2009 paedo-smear on a claim he knew to be a lie (that lie being that police had always thought Jenvey acted alone; Wightman not only knew otherwise, he tried to convince me that another of his perceived enemies was responsible).

If Dominic Wightman is genuinely concerned about any contact/mention re: his family, it is most likely rooted in his fear that his mother might find out what he’s been up to. For the record, I have so far resisted the temptation to simply pop round and tell on him.

UPDATE (14 Aug 2012) – In recent correspondence, another serving executive was given no choice but to confirm that Douglas Morpeth was and is President of the Shamley Green Conservatives fundraising committee. It has taken OVER A YEAR to have this simple fact confirmed by any executive on that committee, including the President himself. Shortly after, Douglas Morpeth finally confirmed that Dominic Wightman stood as an executive on his fundraising committee. He declined to confirm the specific dates of 2005-2010, most likely because of the combined embarrassments of this issue and the bankruptcy issue.

Ed Miliband, Nadine Dorries, and office burglary etiquette

There’s been rather a lot of fuss in recent days about an apparent break-in at Ed Miliband’s Commons offices. Police are investigating and speculation is rife.

Personally, I think everybody should calm down and take a leaf out of the Holy Book of Dorries.

Nadine Dorries claims that almost exactly the same thing happened at her constituency residence in 2010; she says she returned to her constituency home to discover that the front door had been removed from its hinges. She further claimed that nothing was actually missing from the house and the only thing the intruder(s) appeared to be interested in were her office filing cabinets, which had all been opened and rifled through.

This was in early 2010, just prior to a general election, and it took place at a time when Nadine Dorries’ paperwork was of particular interest to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards… but did Dorries make a fuss and call the police? No, she did not. She did take the time to report several critics and a political opponent of ‘stalking’ her, but obviously that was/is a far greater and more legitimate concern than any piddling paperwork that might have been viewed or stolen by unknown burglars (even if Dorries’ incursion does sound far more professional than Miliband’s ‘forced door’ incident.).

I’m equally confident that if Dorries ever mentioned it to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, it was only in passing; perhaps as a possible explanation for her inability to produce paperwork supporting her expenses claims.

Because, as we all know, Nadine Dorries is not one to make a fuss unnecessarily.
