Our post on this subject is in two parts but, as we work on it, immediate access to the relevant twitter thread of Yasmin Begum can be found by checking out ‘Taffistan Am Byth — Jim Perrin’, which outlines her response to Jim Perrin’s review of Eric Ngalle’s biography.
None of the contents of his review will be surprising to those who have encountered him but it is interesting to see how his attitudes have become even more publicly extreme when unchecked.

(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.)
