We see that on Jim (James) Perrin’s Facebook he has chosen to post a photograph of himself almost saint-like, and appropriately encircled with stars… (which he has borrowed from the EU flag). The gentle, benevolent smile belies the truth. We noted how in an earlier Country Diary entry: ref. Jim Perrin sends his blessings, he sent ‘his blessings’ to his readers at Christmas.
In our opinion Jim Perrin is heartless, manipulative and a narcissistic personality and in posts on our site we have presented dozens of evidences of the real character of this man. Continue reading
We have recently learned of another instance of the heartless treatment by Jim Perrin of the many women who have become enamoured of him over the years, and whom he has cajoled and cozened into sharing their lives and their assets. Financial gain and the acquisition of property were his main considerations, as one after the other the poor duped women would discover. We have been told by some of them how much they had lost, and how their lives have been ruined by their association with him.
Sadly, our sister Jac was also deceived by him and we have posted evidence of his mental cruelty towards her and of his violent assault on one of her sons.

(As we explained in a previous post our nephew declined any further action, although advised he had just cause, because although our sister was entirely supportive of him she was already in the later stages of her cancer and he had no wish to add further complications to the family dynamic or give her any additional anxiety.)

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. Very often his messages which are Guardian-based are written with much political opinion and hyperbole, yet ironically he is unable to vote, despite his endless and vociferous dialogues with his Facebook ‘friend’s, because he chooses not to register with the electoral roll (to avoid the CMS). However, he wrote:
‘The only two political parties to which I’ve ever belonged are the Communist Party of Great Britain and Plaid Cymru. The latter will get my vote next time.’ Except, it is known, he could not have voted… Continue reading
