Well Hercule, if they do, it looks like it may have to be a clandestine one given the alleged shenanigans around the talk.

There has to be at least one honest person attending the conference who suspected that this kind of censorship would be happening and would take appropriate measures to bring it out in public afterwards with the help of a digital recorder.

I've checked on the other Whitechapel Society Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/White...71?sk=timeline) and there's been nothing going on for at least a year!!!

Russell Edwards doesn't have to answer questions if he doesn't want to but, if he chooses not to do so, there will inevitably be speculation as to why.

I can understand that having worked many years with Political leaders as a communication strategist (spin doctor); but when you expect the worst, a politician will never go public or face an audience with the source of controversy. He'll have a well prepared press release he'll read having given an advance notice he will not answer questions and wait to see if a tsunami reaction would arise.

But this is a bit different. Many have participated to his presentation (and paid for it) expecting him or Jari to come and clarify the situation by giving details they didn't think the average reader or experts would hope to get or challenge and were omitted in the book.

They both just lost all the little bit of credibility they may still have had.

Edwards has spent the evening busily deleting posts from his Facebook page. I know of several who have posted and they have all been deleted.

You mean this one with two of the most recent photographs being RE with Mr Paul Begg?

If so, note the first picture he posted, RE and two other gentlemen , one with a goatee beard, and a rather sad looking Mr Begg.

I spent a minute scrolling down the timeline and found this post:

Funeral Pictures

Which has this description/text:

Quote:
First picture was just before we went to Ronnie Bigg's funeral, God rest his soul. The other pictures are best friend and business colleague Darren with close friend Dave Courtney Obe and Chris Lambrianou. We had a great night that night.
The gentleman with the goatee beard seems to be his "business colleague" Darren.

Two of the pictures have Darren with Dave Courtney Obe - who seems likely to be this man
- self-proclaimed former gangster and author

And one with Chris Lambrianou who maybe maybe one of the men found guilty of murdering Jack "The Hat" McVite.

As you can see one of the pictures seems to have Courtney and Darren with sawn-off shotguns (they legal in the UK?).

A "business colleague" indeed ?

RE's world is very bizarre.

cheers, gryff

By refusing to clarify obscure issues in a conference opened to the public (including actual and potential readers) after a rather obvious counter-evidence has been brought out in the interest of the consumer, I'm no legal expert but lawyers in Canada would call this 'intellectual fraud' and strongly recommend a class action against the author, his 'associate' Jari and the publisher. The WhiteChapel Society could possibly be considered as an accomplice for having knowingly participated in this masquerade.

Just watched it the other day. One of the worst interviews I've seen. I can see how Mr. Edwards theory appeals to those not in the know. I was really hoping for one of the commentators to question mitochondrial dna vs nuclear dna, but no luck.
