Jim Perrin: More practice needed to deceive?

We began this post when we noticed changes on Jim Perrin’s Wikipedia page, the 7th., 8th., and 9th. of November last year in which it was stated: ‘…of Huguenot descent, he was born James Earnest Perrin in Manchester, England. Since 2007 he has lived in the Midi-Pyrenees department of Ariège.’ In the past we have drawn attention to anomalies on his Wikipedia page but this post relates to changes which were made from November, last year. (Readers may see them for themselves by googling the Wikipedia page and going to ‘View history’.) There were A). a name change, B). the removal of details of his children, C). a claim of Huguenot descent and D). information that he had not lived in the UK since 2007. (On 8/11/16 details of eight extra obituaries written by Jim Perrin were given — a phenomenal example of retrospective name-dropping…)

Jim Perrin sends his blessings

In his latest Country Diary, see The Guardian, 31/12/16, Jim Perrin ended with a personal message of ‘my blessings’ to Brendon Cox, bereaved husband of Jo—the young politician most viciously murdered—and to their children. But: really is the Country Diary an appropriate stage for Jim Perrin to be giving out ‘[his] blessings’? And was he taking too much upon himself to have written in that way and in a ‘diary’ which by definition is devoted to ‘countryside’ matters?

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. As they do now have his current address he is already making plans to leave and we think, that based on his previous propensity for avoiding them, this will not be unconnected. Continue reading
