Guardian Country Diarist Jim Perrin avoids paying maintenance for his children

In our opinion Jim Perrin is adept at evasion and it is to this end that he changes his residences so frequently.

When we posted Jim Perrin moves on again? 9/10/14, we knew he had been living in Harlech for about a year, (although moving back and forth from his ‘bolt-hole’ in Ariège—perhaps he means to retire there?), and so unpopular had he become that a rock was thrown through the car windscreen: He said he had to leave Harlech for the sake of his health…

There were at least two further moves—to rental accommodation—before he settled, for the time being, in the village of Drefach Felindre in Carmarthenshire. Still he succeeds in evading the clutches of the Child Maintenance Service (formerly the CSA) by the simple expedient, we may assume, of ignoring them.

Jac believed what Jim Perrin told her… she was not aware of the truth — Part 2

Considering all we have discovered about Jim Perrin’s past relationships, it is interesting to note that after our sister died of her cancer he managed to gain the support and loving sympathy of at least six other partners—up to the present—(two within the year of Jac’s death) with the claim that he was himself now dying of the disease: they could hardly have missed this tragic coincidence…

His account of the illness, see: ‘Jim Perrin diagnosed with Terminal Lung Cancer?‘, and his patient suffering and acceptance as he dealt so bravely with his failing health; together with his ‘history’ of past distress—the ‘lack of any real love or understanding’—was to make him the irresistible subject for the ministrations of the sensitive women he seems to have targeted (they were never without property or means) and with whom, successively, he began A New Life.
