Jim Perrin is on Facebook, part 3

Jim Perrin says on Facebook: ‘I don’t take the Guardian’. That may be, but he reads it, and regularly, and has done so for decades although perhaps it is not ‘delivered’. He was lying directly or Being Economical With the Truth…  Certainly, in the time that our sister was involved with him he read it daily. The greater part of his Facebook entries are based on articles published there, and in many cases he lifts entire portions of text to elaborate upon; pontificating to his heart’s content.

Jim Perrin is on Facebook…

As ‘James’ Perrin he informs his readers that he ‘studied at the Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre.’ We contacted them and asked if it was true. They said it was not and that they had absolutely no record of him being there in any capacity at all.
