Does Jim Perrin, ‘Guardian’ Country Diarist, really have cancer?

As of today Jim Perrin has not died of his ‘Terminal Lung Cancer’ — the diagnosis he claimed to have been given by the medical profession — and for which, he was at pains to explain, he had specifically elected to receive no treatment of any kind; neither surgical nor palliative: no intervention whatsoever. He made a great point of this. It seems that it needed to be said, otherwise how could he have justified his decision not to accept the cancer treatment (which would almost certainly be the course of action for anyone genuinely diagnosed) without giving the lie to his elaborate subterfuge:  his ‘explanation’ was to pre-empt suspicion.

In West, published in July 2010, he wrote in detail and at length about his ‘illness’, and in an article in the Times, 13/07/2010, he added: ‘Post-script: My cancer — not worth mentioning in my view  [yet here, clearly, he is doing just that] — carries a one chance in ten of survival beyond five years. In November I’ll be three years in.’ So stoic; so very brave… Continue reading

Jac believed what Jim Perrin told her… she was not aware of the truth — Part 2

Considering all we have discovered about Jim Perrin’s past relationships, it is interesting to note, after our sister died of cancer within nine months of her diagnosis, how quickly he was able to gain the support and loving sympathy of at least six other partners — up to the present — two within the year of Jac’s death. He claimed that he was himself now dying of the disease: they could hardly have missed this tragic coincidence…  His account of the illness, ref. Jim Perrin diagnosed with Terminal Lung Cancer? and his patient suffering and acceptance as he dealt so bravely with his failing health! — together with his ‘history’ of past distress, the ‘lack of any real love or understanding’ — was to make him the irresistible subject for the ministrations of the sensitive women he seems to have opportunistically targeted (they were never without property or means) and with whom, in succession, he began A New Life.

Jim Perrin moves on again?

How quickly word seems to get out!  We received a message only today, 08/10/2014, to tell us that Jim Perrin is moving and that, as an excuse, his story is that ‘he is so ill he has got to leave Snowdonia in the next few weeks. He says the climate is very bad for him.’ (And, they continued, ‘He must think we are all idiots.’)

It appears therefore that the information we recently posted about his address in Harlech, Gwynedd, is now out of date, as we have been told that the house has already been sold. (Except: revision.) We have just, 09/10/2014, double-checked with the estate agent and they confirmed that a cash offer had been accepted with a completion date of 07/11/2014. However the buyers withdrew their offer, and the house is now back on the market. It would seem that, after all, Jim Perrin may not be able to move on quite as quickly as (for the state of his ‘health’) clearly he needed to do: unless, that is, he asks of any most nearly concerned — as he did of our own family in what we believe may be similar circumstances — ‘the funds to move on with, it is only fair.’..  See Overheard at the funeral by Melangell (JP?)
