Ah, I had forgotten about your other playground whispers, i.e.
the implication that I suffer from Asperger's syndrome. See:


I am blinded by your scientific knowledge, you must have a GCSE
in psychology!

So I have Aspergers which is why you don't respond to me? I must
have caught it at the annual debunkers convention around 1997. I
say that because all of the attendees seem to receive the same
treatment from you (feigned ignorance), and all have expressed
similar misgivings or enquired about your actual role at the
MoD. Present at the convention were:

Dave Clarke
Andy Roberts
Jenny Randles
Kevin McClure
John Harney
Peter Brookesmith
John Rimmer
James Easton
Matthew Williams
David Kingston
Tim Matthews

though I'm not aware that the condition is contagious. Many of
the same individuals have asked you about the Tollbooth case and
not received a sensible response.

I suppose the 1997 head of your section at Sec(AS)2 must also
have been dishonest, along with Kerry Phillpot and Linda Unwin
when they played down your role. If playing down your role is
dishonest, then you are also labelling yourself as dishonest
according to your own comments reproduced at:


The bottom line is that these suggestions of anti-semitism and
Aspergers are nothing more than an attempt to deflect attention
from the awkward questions and the comments which you would also
rather ignore.

As your MoD chum said in relation to your supposed abduction
experience, "I'm not surprised that they didn't want to keep
him". It seems that there are still people within ufology who do
want to keep you. Once again, Ufology gets what it deserves.
