Default Message From Mr Icke


You may have noticed that is not available at the
moment. This is due to an attack on the site that could only be stopped
by taking it down and moving to alternative technology. This will be
done, at still more cost, by tonight or tomorrow and the site will be
accessible again.

It is just the latest in an endless stream of challenges, financial
and otherwise, that have to be met to keep the site available for
people - for free - and keep the information flowing as an alternative
to the mainstream propaganda.

But, you know, I do wonder sometimes, no, increasingly often, why I
bother. Every day I am faced with hours of unpaid work and a stream of
emails asking me for help. I always try to do what I can, given that
there is only one of me. But when I ask for help? Forget it.

The subscription take-up for a paid-for newsletter - I say 'paid for'
I mean the price of a single beer a month - has been, how shall I put
it?, virtually non-existent. When it was free, wow, yes please. Now
it's the price of a pint of beer a month for four newsletters, no

So if that's what they are considered to be worth - nothing - then why
should I spend my time producing them while wondering if my basic bills
will be covered at the end of the month and whether can
continue to exist in anything like its present form?

The response has made me reassess all that I have done and am doing
because I am up to here with giving out with so little in return.
People say they support me? Okay, where is it? I put out an appeal for
help with the website and every single response - bar one - was looking
to make serious money out of doing it.

How much is it worth not to be microchipped? How much is it worth not
to have a uniformed thug knock on the door? How much is it worth to be

The next newsletter will go out on Saturday/Sunday and if the take-up
is not vastly increased, it will be the last one. And I am certainly
not, given this wake-up call, going to spend my hours every day on the
website any more if this is how much the information is valued. Why
should I? I have a family to look after.

Thanks so much to those few who have responded, it is so much
appreciated. But after nearly 20 years of giving out with so little
return, enough is enough.

Anyone who wishes to subscribe to the newsletter can do so once the
site is back up later today or tomorrow at the latest. Here is the link
you will need when it's back up and running:

Sorry if I sound pissed off, but then I am.

best wishes,
