The views expressed after Mike Garde was blocked were inappropriate and I can confirm that he is a genuine campaigner against Scientology. He has a long history and good character for fighting cultism.
My reply published this evening:
Mike Garde Pete thanks for posting this. As you now know I did not know you had published this apology till I was able to reconnect to the group. You know also that I do not intend commenting here other than to check if further abuse has come my way. I should point out though as one of the managers of the site that you still have a responsibility to address further abuse. I bring to your attention the fact that only 2 minutes after you published this apology John McGhee left this comment: “what is the basket-case doing this time?” Then on the same day a week ago he seemed to suggest you were not sincere in this apology? “The title of the post, about Mike being a genuine campaigner, was a wee in-house joke. It was originally in quotations. The man is a nut job and he bombarding members here with his insane ramblings.” As you know I was not able to comment here till now. I would be grateful if you could address this abuse asap.
It was clear that though Pete Griffith is facing major legal threats due to the bizarre policy of engaging Scientologists in public. He when it came down to it was not sincere about upholding my good name. I have been personally and professionally attacked on Facebook. It is the position of DI that we will publish some of that information here as any reasonable attempt to raise this isue is not moderated. Pete Griffith has such a need for celebrity he has totally bowed to the mob rather than protect a campaigner against Scientology. Also it is clear that John and himself are joined at the hip so he is not able to moderate or act independently.

Mike Garde This what Pete published this morning very early just in time for your west coast coolers. . ” (People on th eWest Coast of the USA.)
Pete Griffiths 24 February 06:27 “I’m trying to smooth ruffled feathers. He has threatened me and John with legal action over the posts made here.”
I was asking him to to stop the abuse but he did not have the guts to tell people to stop, so joined the crucify him brigade. Here is our final correspondence. “What can I do,” was the refrain, doing a Pontius Pilate and washing his hands knowing full well that all of the comments were malicious. His behaviour is just like the Scientologists he despises.

“The truth? If you can’t handle a group dynamic (i.e. people disagreeing with you) then leave the group and everyone in peace, including me.”
He had published an apology and then let John McGhee go a head and immediately contradict what he had said. I only found this post a week later. He has been willing to have filth and bile and innuendo to be released and refused to act. Then he made it appear it was my problem that I could not handle all the rough and tumble. He is allowing me to be defamed and there are now over 200 comments in a thread which was about my being a real campaigner against Scientology. It is clearly an orchestrated campaign of vilification
So I wrote, “The truth is you are a coward and when asked to define your position by someone you are so pathetic you ask what book are you reading? (That was his next post.) It appears you have no respect for anything other than your own celebrity. I thought you were a serious campaigner but when given the chance to answer the questions you allowed me to be further ridiculed and taunted.
Let me outline your future.
1. Like a lemming you are attached to John. He is drawing you into a dead end.
2. You are currently in the circuit court but the Scientologists want you in the High Court.
Unless you detach from John you are going to find your bank balance likely very low and it is going to go deeply into minus.
On that note I will give you time to reflect before ending any contact with you.
Enough is Enough.

“Yes Mike, you run along now like a good lad and cry to anyone who’ll listen. Everybody is bored of you now. However, get this clear, Pete is not a lemming to me, I do my own thing, Pete does his. I do things he’d never do, and he does things in turn which I would not. Yes it’s true Pete needs to be more honest with regard to how he feels about you, he likes to play the politician, but let me give you a hint as to how he feels; it’s much the same as me. Now go away you pathetic fool.”

“John you are deeply disturbed and up till now you have bulldozed your way through life. All I have done is burst your bubble. The bubble of abusive campaigning. I wish you well and hope you find a way to find healing for all the damage in your life. Thank you for assisting DI in regard to our work with Tony Quinn. I will not defend myself in regard to your incendiary and vicious innuendos on Facebook.* You know my record but because of the fact I named your inappropriate form of protest you wish to destroy me no less than Scientologists wish to do with their enemies. You decided to make me your enemy, but you will remain a friend till you catch up with me. I assume as Pete has sent this onto you that his period of reflection will be short lived. So it is time to conclude contact with you both.”
* John McGhee placed a highly offensive image on Facebook suggesting I would not comment at all on Facebook whereas what I meant was I would not be commenting in response to John’s abusive statements until the end of the Court process. I will be exercising my right to respond to an orchestrated campaign by those brought onto defame and attack me, when the intention of the post was to vindicate me.
