I sometimes wonder whether radio anoraks actually deserve the world as it is, at present. A world gone madder than my wildest imagination could ever, er well imagine. Four year olds can choose which toilets to use according to there perceived gender. Transgender men demanding to be able to use women's toilets (what could possibly go wrong). The government's not so subtle attack on the traditional family unit ramps up a gear as you will see in the first video. The leader of the supposedly free world (it isn't) has clear cognitive issues (so who really is pulling the strings)? The Taliban inheriting billions of pounds worth of modern weapons including Blackhawk helicopters.
And all the anoraks can do is sit with their rose tinted glasses on reliving their imaginary past. When three people try to research their real history it clearly unsettles these aging dreamers. To think that Ronan was not really the main man behind Radio Caroline, well that's heresy of the worst type.
If the reality of the past is something quite different to what anoraks believe and the result of suggesting this sends some of them over the edge, then no wonder they remain in denial of the world around them today. On the GS forum, anything that's not about the past as seen through idiot books like the Caroline Bible is now forbidden. There are other places to discuss the world as it is they tell Geoff Hutton. Perhaps GS should rename his board The Free From Reality Forum.
It's no different on Dave Martin's Caroline Worshipers Forum. Bob Meade & his happy gang of wanderers repeating over and over the same old dross about the tribute station calling itself Radio Caroline. Onwards and upwards he declares, whilst the world around him tailspins into deeper and more desperate madness. The comments left hear reinforce my thinking that some of these anoraks are clearly somewhere on the spectrum. I delete more than ever appear here. Everyday someone desperate to vent their frustration on Mervyn leaves some idiotic ramble expecting it to be published. Meanwhile back in the real world.....
