Re: A gut feeling

Tony, again you refer to "my book", as you did on 31, January, based on that writing I posed a simple question as to where I could obtain the book, or what to give the IWM to get the manuscript you provided and was accepted, you advising that it was now in the archives and could be located there.

I read your original post again, you use terms of my book, edited, researched,printed. These terms raise in me the picture of a book, not a DVD, not a file of sheets of paper, but a book like one would find in a book shop or a library. I have to suspect now that there is not, never has been and probably never will be a book. So be it.

I guess I am open with these comments to accusations of a witch hunt, causing you to be humiliated, and whatever else, again so be it.

I can see no great loss in my life of Pete Bradley, who I am not sure exists in fact, writing very similar to another poster on here, Ray M and I are not what one would class as comrades, but I sincerely regret the loss of Charles Lewis, and probably the total demise of the forum, but what the hell, it was dying anyway.

Re: A gut feeling


My penultimate sentence was poorly worded, It should have read - “That said, I take no pleasure in Tony’s current absence if it is due to illness”.

I tried to edit the post soon after I’d placed it, but the forum program wouldn’t allow me. I believed Tony might really be ill, and despite the bile I have experienced from him and his cronies over the years, took no pleasure in the thought.

Had I known he'd merely gone to ground, I'd have kept my mouth shut, and my foot out of it.

Re: A gut feeling

I am just reading over some of the posts again, I am having some difficulty because of my strange sense of humour, but reading one snippet, absolutely the irony of which completely feeds my humour is the statement, "the truth will always out".

Re: A gut feeling

But where?

As I read Charles Lewis, he was saying that Tony could put all this to bed with a straight answer, i.e. the IWM reference. Instead he chooses to tap-dance around, which merely adds to the suspicion.

Re: A gut feeling

Good Morning Bob and John!

I must have overlooked the 'snippet' you mentiond Bob. Can you point me to it please..?


Re: A gut feeling

It is not anything momentous BB just my warped sense of humor, and belief in irony. It was five words out of a fairly lengthy post on 16 February . I don't weant to be charged with bear baiting, criminal offence here.
