Recent news of author Jim Perrin

Here is irony:

We have heard today that Jim Perrin has — in his own words (16/11/16) — ‘started studying at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre.’ Doubtless in that environment there may well be many trusting and impressionable people, both students and tutors or course leaders, whom in his own inimitable style, he will be able to influence.

The Quaker philosophy — ‘a faith of simplicity, justice and peace’ — could not be further from that which Jim Perrin has consistently espoused in his own adult life. Indeed his ‘history’, made public on this site (and the details we have posted are truthful and verifiable), might seem to make his presence there rather a mystery. We have every reason to believe, and have said before, that in our opinion Jim Perrin is ‘a wolf in sheep’s clothing’ and his known and documented conduct over the last decades should, we feel, be taken as warning regarding his future behaviour.

Notes for newcomers

There have been many new visitors to our site this year and it appears they are reading of Jim Perrin’s history — one which shows an altogether darker side to the author and of which it is unlikely his ‘public’ is aware. Apart from those who know him of old and have told us of the traumas of their time with him there is a group of loyal, if complaisant, followers who even after hearing of his past continue not only to support him but actively to promote him.
