As this thread heads inexorably towards 5000 views it would seem that someone has tipped off the old fraud that he needs to keep his own blog Britannia Rules - http://www.ashleymote.co.uk/ - up near the top of the ratings lest this thread and the other one here - http://www.democracyforum.co.uk/brit...her-loser.html end up overtaking him. Indeed as of today the other thread has made it to the front page of my Google search for Ashley Mote (no additional words like hypocrite, thief, fraudster, charlatan etc).
Ashley's solution is to post rubbish on his blog, thereby attracting visitors.
On the 3rd July Ashley apologises for the fact that his blog was riddled with viruses etc and posts a list of his most recent letters to the press. He doesn't state whether they were published or not, but I think I'm inclined to believe that less are published than he would hope. He adds footnotes to letters to newspapers - these won't have been published. His long diatribe pointing to a question he asked some years back will not have been published. His letter of 4th July is signed off as author of a little known and little read work, OverCrowded Britain (sic).
On the 12th July Ashley posts a headline that is probably more appropriate to him than anyone else, 'He Must be Desperate'. It's a pretty desperate post by Ashley if you ask me.
On the 13th July he is honest and heads his post, Letter to the Times (Unpublished). There is a reason. It is Ashley promoting himself as a fighter against fraud. The response to Ashley would have to be tu quoque. I still have the original bundles somewhere since I prepared the box files he refers to (I think he means ring binders). They're not based on original work by AM and he has no proprietary right in them, but I bet he'd love a copy.
This flurry of activity on Ashley's blog has helped him get more entries on the first page of any Google search for him. No worry. The 2 threads on the forum are maintaining their own.
What I don't understand is why he hasn't pointed out that his support for an independent Forwick remains a lost cause and that he remains linked, in perpetuity, to one of England's barmier sons. I don't suppose he knows or cares.
