"You can ‘steal’ a fact. The courts have never upheld that even a theory isn’t intellectual property unless it’s published.
At the end of the day only “those who were on the payroll and did the deed” really know. Some of them told me lies and the tales invariably matched up when drunk on Yorkshire ale, I simply copied, edited, rewrote history in a chronologically stupid non proof read manner and sorted out the rose tinted memories from the emerging facts that I didn't understand, the dreams from the actuality and ignored all forms of reality. The research was farcical and copied and pasted from many sources, acknowledged in the book, and my own library of 1100 Janet and John books. They were criss-cross-referenced with contemporaneous notes going back to 1776 when I first became interested, not to mention all manner of ‘comics’ which many know I have hoarded.
Trying to re-invent the wheel is just trampling on the reputation of a conman who made the British Offshore radio phenomenon happen and prolonged it, no matter who paid for it. When you dig a kind of crook, you don’t dig around for who paid for it. Many musicians resorted to dubious dealings to get their drugs - or even stole them. No anorak troll really cares. Many on here like cocaine and speed but would find it utterly ridiculous fir anyone to want to expose the pioneers and founders as drug dealers who used illegal ways of raising finance or getting the necessary bills thru back handers.
Just what is this obsession with the unlikely and unproven claims of a bitter old Yorkshire-man who cross-dresses and has zero credibility or friends in the business? The Caroline call-sign is an enduring fart that many love and want to feel part of. Over a thousand have proven their interest by buying the bible (actually the real one is Billions but that's a new crock for you), a collection of stories, fables, fantasies by those who RAN an illegal slush fund for an ex Parrot, who know the true story and wanted me to make money. It has been, without facts, plenty of wild speculation and puerile nastiness and venom. (I vented a touch of that on free radio’s true enemies- O'Rahilly, Wilson, Short, Stonehouse and Gay Boy Thorpe)".
Like I said, the original version of this post is utter rubbish. Prove me wrong with documented facts, real knowledge, based on verifiable records. Or just carry on taking other folks intellectual reserch. DEFEND THAT in a court in the USA, or just learn that defending a turd book is harder than blagging. Three weeks on the Mi Amigo, chucked out of the Lazy project, and a failed IOM project. Wow what a guy!
