Would it not be better for them to have some negative feed back because sure as eggs he will be canvassing favourable responses from his cronies etc?

Enough negative responses and it'll never see the light of day, it will just get buried, but at least it won't achieve what he wants it to achieve.

Just keep an eye on the multiple choice questions, they are set up to give the answer he wants, normally this is fairly subtle, but then normally it's se up by people that are cleverer than the bloke that set it up, trust me you'll spot it!

To be fair I think I have boiled vegetables that could have made their leading questions less transparent than that.

We'll see what happens on that other un named forum, as one of the moderators is involved in this project.
Oh I wonder who that could be, well I only know of one dodgy one there! :thumbdown:

Well you only have to Google his name and IoD, first result is a rather enlightening read. It does bring into question the other forums stance on this matter! :shock:

Cool, maybe your opinion didn't fit with their controlled discussions? :rollinglaughing:

Well ladies and gents isn’t it a lovely evening? It appears the leaves are sprouting on the trees and offering great cover from the prying eyes of our neighbours. Isn’t spring a marvellous thing?

Edit: oh for gawd sake, are you back? Nice to know we’re so interesting. It’s good here isn’t it? Yes we know :D

Maybe they're just looking to see if anyone has mentioned Liam's involvement with Keith Westcott and IoD? :wink:

It'll be a little tricky to ignore now I would think, here's the list of people from the board that I downloaded from the article.


There's a couple of surprising companies on there, some have already started damage limitation statements on social media.

They'll need to do more than post on Facebook before they get any money out of me again.

Regardless of all the questions over the IoD and its intent, I'm having trouble getting my head round the fact that Mr Westcott appears to have been paid a large sum of money by HE to produce a document detailing why that same HE should give him £50k to paddle about with.

Or is it just me? I have to have got something wrong, surely? :Thinking:

Nope, you haven't got it wrong, that's how taxpayers money gets spent.

In the private sector if you want cash you have to pitch, in the public sector they pay you to pitch, then give you the grant, decent scam really, I might apply for some funding to facilitate restocking our population of woolly mammoths.

When so much was suspected and talked about regarding this organisation over a year ago, when it was perfectly clear that it's purely a commercial operation in a (very thin) disguise, it's surprising that it's taken an e-mag article to get many more people's backs up. Anyway, it's good to see the backlash and see some of the "ambassadors" (the Searcher, the Metal Detectives, LP to name three) are scuttling away and distancing themselves from the IoD.

Be very interesting to see who else finally sees sense, or scurries away due to a heightened sense of self-preservation.
