We were told by a well-wisher, on 16/11/2016, that Jim Perrin claimed he had ‘Started studying at the Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre’.* Actually he ‘studied’ at Bangor university according to his own biographical notes, achieving a 2:1 in English; and which we wrote about in January 2013: ‘Does Guardian Country Diarist, Jim Perrin, have a phantom PhD?’ (ref. the titles shown below). And because, as so many of our previous posts reveal, we have found him to be a man who lies with consummate ease — some lies being of exceptional wickedness, and not just ‘little white lies’ — we thought we would ask them…
The office personnel as well as the heads of department were, in the true Quaker spirit, generously and openly responsive to our enquiry; there was none of the stifling ‘political correctness’ which these days so often can obstruct attempts to determine the truth. (And by which those who have reasons to wish to remain hidden can ‘play the system’ to their undoubted advantage!)
They informed us that there is no documentation of Jim Perrin ever having attended; neither very recently — as he would have us believe — nor at any time previously. They were able to state this with authority as they have kept a meticulous record, and have updated their database within the last eighteen months. No name was removed from the earlier version and all names were included — up to the present, and going back some fifteen years — and they ‘had even checked the post-graduate names, just in case, although [they] had doubted it… it is a full database.’ Continue reading
One of our many correspondents (and an acquaintance of Jim Perrin) has sent us details of an article they had seen on 09/05/2018, in which, comenting on the government, the author had written these words: ‘…our children are deprived of all but the skeleton of a state education system…’
In fact we know that Jim Perrin has taken no interest at all in some of his own children’s education: and that he should have written this Cri de Coeur is frankly risible. Instead, the author is brazen to write in this way — he who has always unrelentingly refused to pay any maintenance whatsoever. Indeed he makes no financial arrangements of any kind, neither to the lives nor to the education of his under-age children; children for whom to this day he is legally liable. ‘Depriving’ them of funding or support he has continually taken the steps necessary to outwit the authorities who would otherwise enforce payment in such a case as his. Another well-wisher has pointed out the irony that Jim Perrin (despite his vituperation and the near-hysterical outpourings in his political attacks online… ) is not even legally able to vote. In his on-going evasion of the Child Maintenance Service he remains ‘of no fixed abode’ and is unable therefore to divulge his whereabouts; information which is a prerequisite for inclusion on the electoral register.
It is true there are a few exceptions to this rule but none that Jim Perrin could claim — as he will undoubtedly be aware — without being linked to, or accessed by, the Child Maintenance Service. He has successfully evaded them for virtually two decades: he is hardly likely now to register to vote; not withstanding the ranting impression he gives online as to his political allegiance.
