Richie Allen: You just couldn’t make this shit up!
Richie Allen of TPV (You couldn’t make this up if you wanted to):
“The idea that former (and current) BBC, ITV and MTV staff would be party to any impropriety is frankly ludicrous.”
You have GOT to be joking Richie?
While your “houseguest” preaches to the world about how the mainstream media is “programming” them, how they’re owned and controlled by the establishment (as now you are through OFCOM) etc etc.
And yet YOU Richie, come out with a statement like that? I am seriously pissing myself, I don’t know about anyone else mate. That was either seriously dumb, seriously naive or, most likely, both! Sorry mate but you said it! lol
Statement from Richie Allen …
“I’ve been producing and presenting radio/television programmes for over 15 years. I’ve been in London for nearly four months now. I arrived in late September and rented an apartment in North Wembley. David Icke arrived the day after me and moved into our spare room. Caroline (my partner) arrived a week later. The rent is £1200 per calendar month. David pays £250 per month for his room. It’s a bit of a madhouse, with Jazz (our dog) running around looking for attention. But we have a lot of fun. Caroline is crazy about David and mothers him, even though he is at least one hundred years older than us!
I am paid to present and produce a show for TPV. I pay my rent from that. Full stop. The station pays its senior presenters and producers and depends on the support of dozens of volunteers, many of whom have jobs and come in in their spare time. Many do not have a job and come in anyway. It’s remarkable. I’ve never seen such commitment to an idea. Whatever comes of it, I will always remember those who come in, research, edit or perform various administrative tasks and ask for nothing in return. To a man and woman, the folks I am working with, who right now are running around and multitasking and working like crazy to get us on air, are absolutely disgusted that someone who left the project, rather than face the music and explain her intolerable abusive behaviour, has cried foul and made baseless allegations about the appropriation of funds at TPV.
The idea that former (and current) BBC, ITV and MTV staff would be party to any impropriety is frankly ludicrous. I am staggered at what we achieved in seven months with ONLY £300,000. To turn a massive empty floor into a state of the art broadcasting facility, pay senior staff and pay the exorbitant taxes and business rates and STILL be on the air is miraculous. The guys who dreamed it all up (David Icke and Sean Adl-Tabatabai haven’t taken a penny. In fact David is forever putting his hand in his pocket and spending money to plug gaps, as is Sean. In fact Sean has had to take a mainstream production job in the spring to make ends meet. They have taken NOTHING The oversight is first class.
What annoys me most about the half baked autodidact who made these allegations is the abject cowardice she has shown in making them. You abuse your producers until they leave (4 of them), no volunteer wants to work with you. You regularly threaten to leave if you don’t get your way and when you are asked to explain yourself, you run away and cry foul. What happened to taking responsibility for your actions and saying; “it’s a fair cop guv” and taking your medicine.
I said it before and I’ll say it again, I am 39 years old (shit) and I will never be involved with anything more important than this as long as I live. May the good Lord bless the good ship TPV and all who sail in her!”
I have to go now. The insanity of this circus has me in between stitches laughing and, as Icke just stated on his explanatory video with a handheld camera, close in shaky shots and his mouth dry with a mixture of nerves, anxiety and deep deep anger, “I despair at the sheer stupidity of the human race”.
