TPV: We’re transparent! (yes indeed you are!)

THE MAN WHO HATES THE SYSTEM THEN PROMOTES THE SYSTEM AS HIS ASSURANCE TO HIS AUDIENCE THAT HE WILL BE TRANSPARENT. YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS SHIT UP AND GET AWAY WITH IT – UNLESS YOU’RE DAVID ICKE!

TPV have just issued a statement on transparency and this is it:

When we decided upon a legal structure through which to operate TPV we had to balance the need for transparency against cost and regulation. (No mention of this at all until they came under intense scrutiny. Further – and this is a very important point – re the regulation: David Icke and team stated that they chose the Private Limited Company vehicle because, to go down the road of a charity or foundation, they say they were advised that this would not allow them to criticise the state or government. So, there you have outright admission that TPV’s intention is to do that AND, therefore, TPV is POLITICAL. Now, consider the stance of OFCOM and the fact that no politically based organisation is allowed a licence. You CANNOT be non political for one purpose of regulation and then political on the other hand. So, once more – sorry David and sorry OFCOM – but you are red handed and checkmated regarding this fundamental question. Lastly, TPV could have been set up as a Private Limited Company by guarantee. It wasn’t. It was set up by shares. We’ll touch on this point later.)

After taking advice we decided to incorporate Peoples Voice Broadcasting Limited as a private limited company. Principally because we did not wish to burden TPV with the increased regulatory cost and operational restrictions that apply to Charities and Community Interest Companies (CIC). (Again, the operational restrictions are those of being political and Icke has already stated this is why he chose the Private Limited Company vehicle. Again, therefore, this clashes 180 degrees with OFCOM’s rules yet OFCOM are determined to ignore every evidence of TPV’s political nature and Icke’s involvement)

However, transparency is important to us and we are happy to give the following undertakings: (It never was before so why now? People asking for transparency all through late last year were thrown off the David Icke forum, called a whole number of cheap names by TPV staff and crew including Icke and family and were determined by the TPV team as “trouble-makers. I guess now that TPV have decided to acquiesce – they have no choice if they wish to keep and build any sort of following – these people who were vilified, are now vindicated?)

1) That no shareholder of TPV will ever take a dividend from the company.

The Two Ways You Make Money holding shares

  1. An increase in share price. Over the long-term, this is the result of the market valuing the increased profits as a result of expansion in the business or share repurchases, which make each share represent greater ownership in the business as a percentage of total equity. In other words, if a business with a £10 share price grew 20% for 10 years through a combination of expansion and share repurchases, it should be nearly £620 per share within a decade as a result of these forces assuming the market maintains the same price-to-earning ratio. What you also have to bear in mind re TPV is that

a) Re the balance sheet – It will, in time (if all goes to Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee’s plan) have a very strong asset to debt ratio simply because it will have no debt except short term (running costs). Its asset side is wonderful because it bought all its assets without any debt whatsoever – from YOUR money (this is what I have meant by “money out of nothing” and Icke has his own central bank and “quantitative easing” – you can’t lose when you work with other people’s money. It’s exactly what our government does!). It has ZERO long term debt! No bank loans or any loans!

b) P&L (Profit & Loss statement) – Again, wonderful. TPV gets its income for nothing, gets its content free AND, regarding the online shop, think about it: YOU are funding the marketing to you of the t-shirts and the caps etc. These will then be sold to you and you will pay even more. So, the reality is that you may have donated say £50 and then bought a t-shirt for £15 (funding the station once more to the extent of the profit in that £15). Altogether then, you have spent £65 for a t-shirt worth, perhaps, a tenner. So the profits in the station are going to be significant when there are, again very little costs except overhead (and volunteers are cheap as was the equipment). Where are the losses to be made? Effectively nowhere (unless these people are seriously incompetent).

TPV’s Price to earning ratio with a balance sheet and P&L like that can only be good and increase exponentially over the years. And THAT is where the value to Icke and Tabatabai lies. Not in dividends!! Icke saying that a shareholder (of which there are only one or two and by what OFCOM says it can only be one) will not take dividends is PURE RED HERRING! 

I’ve got news for you: BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY DOES NOT PROVIDE ITS SHAREHOLDERS WITH DIVIDENDS! Who’s Berkshire Hathaway? Warren Buffet! 

2. Dividends. When earnings are paid out to you, these funds are now your property in that you can either use them to buy more stock or go to Vegas and receive a few blow jobs while finding Jesus and Elvis at the Golden Nugget!

Occasionally, during market bubbles, you may have the opportunity to make a profit by selling to someone for more than the company is worth. In the long-run, however, the investor’s returns are inextricably bound to the underlying profits generated by the operations of the businesses which he or she owns.

2) We will voluntarily (not voluntary at all. You screamed like a castrated cat before acquiescence) publish quarterly management accounts on our website, these will be reviewed by our external Chartered Accountants. Our next quarter-end will be 31st January and we aim to publish figures within two months of each quarter end. (Would those be the same accountants for David Icke Books Ltd and Lion’s Epoch Limited? While are these management accounts going to be of the quality and quantity of the little spreadsheet table you launched at us a few weeks ago which meant absolutely diddly squat to anyone while your audience showed its ignorance once again saying “That should shut people up!”. It shows you the level of intelligence a lot of your audience has David. Sad but true.)

3) As a small company we are only required to file abbreviated accounts at Companies House, however we voluntarily file full statutory accounts. (No biggie David. Every corrupt company on the planet files full statutory accounts and gets away with it. You’re swimming in the same sea Dave. You’re just trying to say you’re a dolphin rather than a shark!)

4) As a small company we are not required by law to have our accounts audited and this is helpful because it reduces our costs, an annual audit would cost in the region of £12,000 plus VAT. However, our statutory accounts will be prepared by our external Chartered Accountants and as such will carry an Accountant’s report in the standard ICAEW format. (No audit eh? Well, you see, it’s like this Dave. You could do whatever you wished and no-one would bat an eyelid at it IF you and your little chum Combataboy had dug into your own pockets with your total of £260K cash at the bank. But you didn’t. Suggesting accountant’s reports are your way of proving your “all above board” is like saying you come with a government guarantee (which, in fact, you do now I come to think about it). It’s like Richie saying no-one in the BBC or MTV would stoop to any malfeasance AND, considering what you yourself preach about the system in its entirety, you’re then using “Accountants” to suggest you’re all pukka? Geez a pie David! No, not P.I.E., just a mince pie will do!)

5) Our first statutory period-end is 31st October 2014 and then annually thereafter. We will publish our full statutory accounts on our website by 31st January each year, just four months after each year-end. This is much sooner than the statutory filing requirement of nine months following each year-end. (Whoopee bloody doo!)

6) We will voluntarily hold an annual “stakeholders” meeting, in London, within five months of our statutory period end, where we will be happy to answer questions from our sponsors, employees, volunteers and donors. We will ask a representative from our external Chartered Accountants to attend that meeting. We envisage that attendance at the meeting will be via a pre-booked ticket, sold at a small charge to cover costs, such as room hire. The precise format of the meeting will depend upon the number wanting to attend. (Note to volunteers and employees: Don’t even THINK of being a whistleblower! lol Have you noticed the sheer scale of people being banned from the David Icke Forum and anywhere else run by him and the “mob”?)

7) Our statutory accounts will voluntarily disclose details of any remuneration paid to any shareholder or director, or to any family member of a shareholder or director. (But you’re not a shareholder according to OFCOM David. Only Combataboy! Does he have a family? While, if there will ever only be ONE shareholder, i.e. him then why not just state “remuneration paid to Sean ADL Tabatabai as sole shareholder and Director”? or are there quiet interests for the moment Dave?)

8) Our statutory accounts will voluntarily include a note showing the number of employees and sub-contractors paid in £10,000 (annualised) bands. We will not be disclosing individual names as we consider that would be an invasion of personal privacy. (Agreed. It would be.)

 

Finally. Anyone notice anything? TPV and Icke are screaming from the rooftops that, if they don’t hit the £400K donations they need, TPV is going to go off air. Yet, here they are telling you that this is how they are going to proceed going forward. It fits with Richie Allen saying he didn’t believe they would go off air and die. Funny how on one hand you get told one thing and on another it’s all business as usual isn’t it? 😉

    TPV is bollocks David Icke talks bollocks Ritchie Allen just plays along with Ickie for the money.Icke just wants
    everybody’s money so he can swan around the world and enjoy celebrity status.Name just one thing that Icke
    has changed on this planet from his efforts the only thing that has changed is the size of his bank account.I think showing Sean’s allotment just summed up the shite this so called TV station can come up with.TPV is going nowhere but that is where Icke is going with his crackpot theories and sad life.He just made the mistake
    of trying to fool too many people and will pay the price no doubt,,let’s hope..the deception dies along with the lies..

    Just now:

    £88,758GBP

    Raised of £400,000 Goal

    6 days left

    It will be very interestng to see if large chunks of money come in soon, perhaps from our corrupt government to aid and abet this stinking heap of trash of a so called TV station set up with OUR money.

    It was a huge con job from the start, but well played I have to say. Unfortunately for the Reverend Icky and his cult we are not zombies. The fall out rate is growing by the day as people realise how fooled they were.

    I don’t know what is going on and how high up it is going, but my senses tell me something is very wrong and corrupt here.

    Keep the peasants happy before they revolt and storm the palace gates, I mean you can’t throw thousands of people in the Tower of London can you?

      Hi Babs, I enjoy your posts here and until today on the Sanctum Zone. You come across as rational and adult.
      Could you find out for me why that Gilly woman has suddenly without warning banned me from Sanctum. My name there is Scarp. My avatar was the lovely chap on the beach in pink. I was rather enjoying checking out the comments on Icke there every day. Now I have only Earthblog to rely on to come up with the dope and he certainly does that. Mark knows me well enough.
      Costas the Greek!

      • Babs said, on January 29, 2014 at 12:15 pm

        I have PM’d her.

      • Babs said, on January 30, 2014 at 9:56 am

        She said she didn’t do anything and doesn’t have that authority. A little birdie told me they don’t like the colour of your sock Mike. :O Is this some kind of secret code?

        • Costas said, on January 30, 2014 at 6:57 pm

          I did ask someone on there what a “sock” was! They seem as paranoid as the David Icke Forum bunch.
          The sneer at DIF and Sean banning everybody then they ban me for some unknown reason. I don’t think they liked the fact that I didn’t really want to be part of their little gang. I was just interested in the various topics and what was going on at the People’s Voice. After my first post I was called a mouthy c**t. Not very welcoming and a bit crude coming from a woman, I thought. I have been on the Icke forums for nearly ten years without any real problems. All a bit childish and pathetic.

          • earthlinggb said, on January 30, 2014 at 7:08 pm

            Come on “Costas” give us a Costas moment on TPV and Icke. By the way, I don’t know if you ever listened to “I’m so sorry” (one of my songs) but it was you who inspired the greek segment to an extent. lol

  3. John said, on January 28, 2014 at 10:14 am

    The astonishing thing is the ignorance shown by Icke to any criticism “Forgive them for they know not what
    they have done” he remarked twice on dot connector plagiarising the bible.Uncovering the news the mainstream won’t entertain for fear of cries of “Bullshit”, providing a voice for the people providing they
    don’t appear in Lizard form.What planet is this guy on it’s not the moon that’s hollow it’s his words.He very early on TPV remarked to Ritchie that the station wasn’t a platform for him and his theories and views asking Ritchie “Do I have my own show on TPV?,no Ritchie replied but then ..in a flash Dot Connector appeared a program joining dots that don’t connect except in Ickes sick brain.

    To throw another turd into the fan he is breaking the Advertising Standards Authority regulations by advertising his own books on the channel and also a fund raising effort is an advert so shouldn’t have anyone who normally presents news or affairs for the channel on it .Probably a lot more laws he is breaking but if nobody complains nothing happens .John

    • earthlinggb said, on January 28, 2014 at 12:51 pm

      John, as you can see from my communications with OFCOM, even if you do point it all out, nothing happens! Strange isn’t it?

  4. cheryl Monti said, on January 28, 2014 at 3:49 pm

    Just watched a bit of the interview with Mr Icke after reading John’s comment. I listened for a while and he just sounded like our local pastor who is involved in some financial shinanikins as well and has lost half his flock. There is a hidden hand at work and I think the protocols of the elders of zion explain that very well. The hidden hand has complete control over all organized christianity, everywhere and anywhere, it’s well talked about on youtube. So, does it not make sense that they have control over the information that we are being given and that’s why we are not sure what to do because the information leads nowhere towards a logical conclusion in order for action to begin and that’s why we are hoodwinked into frustration and then become angry. They are leading us into a trap. A trap in the mind. That’s as far as I’ve got up to now as I know the trap is there but I can’t see it clearly yet. Anyway to me that’s a bit of a breakthrough for my thinking as I was begining to feel helpless and I really hate that one. Please forgive any spelling mistakes. Just an after thought, are we already in the trap?

    • mimi said, on January 28, 2014 at 11:19 pm

      Thankfully the hidden hand has no control over Christ Himself.

      • cheryl Monti said, on January 30, 2014 at 12:06 pm

        Your right mimi and thank you for your comment.

        • earthlinggb said, on January 30, 2014 at 12:30 pm

          We’re all welcome to our beliefs but I’m afraid I don’t/can’t share this one (or any such deity). A loving/caring god would/could not allow what is happening on this earth and has happened over the millennia.

          • cheryl Monti said, on January 30, 2014 at 3:00 pm

            That’s exactly what I started to think and voice about God, a few years ago now and that’s when I left the church because of the treatment I recieved from so called christian friends, just for asking questions. Then I stumbled across Mr Ick and he can’t be questioned either so to my mind they are similar. Think what I think or your out the door. That’s why I’m so disappointed, it seems that all some people want is for me to shut up and put up and I can’t do that anymore so I decided to take control of my own life and think what I want to think. I don’t have the answer to all the problems we face but I do know that I just can’t stand what is going on anymore and sites like this give me courage to carry on thinking past all the crap and not believe all the lies.

  5. cheryl Monti said, on January 28, 2014 at 4:01 pm

    Forgot to say that perhaps that’s why nothing happened with OFCOM as the hidden hand does strange things and as we are finding out, nothing is what it say’s it is, it’s something else. Social Services comes to my mind and the education system. Why not OFCOM too. Just something to ponder over.

  6. Ali said, on January 29, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    I have also along with another commenter watched the ‘dot connector’ video where me icke talks for 60 minutes? About how much he doesn’t care what people think of him. I’m not a psychiatrist but I think that says a lot. It’s frustrating dealing with anyone who is in the habit of creating a narrative in their mind for any criticism i.e “you’re obsessed with me!” “You’re taking on a distorted energy form that’s making you say this and I feel sorry for you” “you’re operating under the law of inversion and attacking what you should be supporting” etc etc constantly responding to any kind of critical thinking or challange by telling people what’s wrong with them psychologically to make them behave that way…how can anyone appear to be so much ‘for the people’ and ‘human race get off your knees’ etc then say “I don’t give a damn what anyone thinks about me” what if an aspect or expression of me as a human ‘getting off my knees’ is questioning his work? “Forgive them they know not what they do?”
    Why not take your own advice? Step out of the stadium, do the no comply dance, become the change etc Mr Icke does all these things he condemns. Bitchy rebuttals, grudges hidden behind new age “I feel sorry for you” fakery. Endless reproduction of he said she said conversations. He does all of this! He’s just done it with Russell Brand! It’s all too self congratulatory. I think there was a time for his particular kind of madness I do! Early 2001 even 2005/6 but people have grown, all the information is out there for free and people know there is something strange about being asked for money by someone who told them money doesn’t exist. Yes yes, I know “we need to use this necessary evil and dip into its frequency to use it for good and spreading information bla bla” why not use this necessary evil to buy a bit of and grow some vegetables and work towards not needing the system? Towards opting out for real? Show instead of tell? ‘Waking people up’ is such an incredibly arrogant stance to take, as arrogant and insulting as the ‘common man, I’m a bit thick’ voice he puts on when he’s being Ethel Jones and Charlie Smith. The stupid game show watching masses. That is probably me being distorted by the tornados bad energy and focussing on minutia. Perhaps like Mr Icke posting another link to a pop video suggesting the performer is a satanic mind controlled witch because yet another unimaginative art director used a black and white floor and a mirror. Full of speculations and focussing on tiny details which may or may not be relevant. He allows himself to be petty, to make insinuations, to use any tiny details to paint a picture of a persons flaws like posting that article about Sonia Poultons ex. What was the point? I think because he understand how to do this, attack someone psychologically that he’s so able to pinpoint all these negative traits when he accuses others of being all those things. I think it may be a case of projection?

    I apologise that my comment isn’t particularly related to this piece. I got carried away and am not a regular poster or blog reader. Thank you.

    • earthlinggb said, on January 29, 2014 at 5:56 pm

      You’re very welcome Ali and you’re free to post however you wish to. I enjoyed that read and can only agree with it.

        Thank you earthling.

    • cheryl Monti said, on January 30, 2014 at 3:28 pm

      Ali, that’s a really good idea about growing our own fruit and veg to get out the system. I got myself an allotment a few years ago for the same reason and got rid of all those direct debits in the bank. Your thoughts about Mr Icke rang so true to my ears and I thank you for posting them.

      • Ali said, on January 31, 2014 at 12:11 am

        Well done for doing that Cheryl! That’s fantastic. I see it as the next logical step. I think largely due to the internet and obvious speeding up of information sharing (this is a perfect example) we’ve had years now of knowing that something smells rotten. Every day people post on twitter & stuff derogatory jokes and jibes at politicians and monarchy, there are ‘satirical’ comedians who poke holes in the pomposity and mock celebrity culture (just like jesters in medieval times!) I see it as biting the teat that’s feeding them! We need them because we’re reliant on societies structure – which was built on the strong pushing around the weak. We need it because we can’t trust each other to be kind and not attack and rob each other without the police, armies, cameras etc. I wonder which came first! If our inherent stupidity or greed or tribalism made us easy to rule or if we were beaten into conforming and evolved into this!
        The opt out alternative has always looked like a cultish commune Amish type of trade off, back to the land! Sacrifice a fast pace and possible stimulation and learning and experiences to be self sufficient. Until now! I like to imagine a possible alternative where not needing any rulers is combined with still being up to date and high tech if you like! I imagine a huge green house with wifi!
        Anyway, sounds like you’re already miles ahead of me! I once tried to grow beetroot but it just died.
        Thanks for your reply, I’m terrible at this stuff and always read back what I’ve said and think “oh no you dickhead!”

        • earthlinggb said, on January 31, 2014 at 12:28 am

          Guys/girls, just keep communicating. It’s great to read the comments even though I may not reply to them. And generally speaking, they’re all very positive. I’ve been criticised (particularly by people close to me) for always posting negatives, concentrating on what’s bad, but there’s method behind the madness and, ultimately, I am positive minded. I just learned a very long time ago that if you deal with the negatives (in business for example) the positives take care of themselves. It’s good to read your positivity though. It tells me there are intelligent, concerned but positive, collaborative minds out there who recognise shit but want better.

        • cheryl Monti said, on February 1, 2014 at 5:15 pm

          Ali, when I first started to grow fruit and veg I had many that died and even now 3years later some still die. It’s nature but the more I did it the better I got. Mind you, I was a bit thick to begin with, I thought beetroot grew on bushes and came already soft, didn’t realize they had to be cooked and peeled and then put in jars. Your no dickhead, your thoughts are like good music to my ears as so many people talk about nothing these days and it’s really good to hear from a thinker. You made me laugh about the greenhouse with wifi, have no idea how that would pan out. The way the world is going I think we need something to fall back on, just in case.

    i must say that David’s commentary on TPV is so uninsightful. Does he not offer anything we haven’t heard before and that we already know? His news headline reading with RIchie is so amaturish, especially with thier happy talk exchanges which seems so insincere. He interprets the news as if what he were imparting was new information when any one of us among the public could read the news and report it in the same way. What value is he providing? Seems like this whole TPV venture was a vanity showcase for himself.

    Mother Damnable providing a link at the end of her blog on Chris Spivy in which shows how in 2005, David was desperate for money and angry that he was putting forth all of this valuable information for nothing and wanted people to contribute instead of visiting his site for free. Hello! You offered it as free content! Seems like he got his money through TPV. It’s still just about David stating the obvious and offering nothing new. What a waste.

      It seems that Ken O’Keefe has also been accused of a ‘lack of transparency’ in the past when it comes to donated money to some of his various causes and where it has gone to. Here are various portions of comment concerning Ken’s troubles.

      quote:

      The “kidnapping” took place in Libya, while RTH’s convoy was there. A ship was required for the transportation of the convoy’s vehicles to Egypt. The charterer of the vessel had to pay a freight. RTH asked for people to donate money in order for the freight of the vessel to be paid. The money was gathered. According to RTH and Ken, who was the convoy’s leader, the freight was paid to the ship owner.

      The exact amount of freight paid still remains a mystery though, since according to Ken’s writings one time it was $55,000, the other $75,000 and the third $82,500. Whatever the exact amount they allegedly paid (and this is where the term “allegedly” needs to be used since the burden of proof, i.e. the payment or wire receipt of the money paid to the ship owning company still lies with RTH & Ken up to this date), we are still talking about a 5-digit number, which was raised from DONATIONS.

      At some point RTH & Ken said that the money was safely recovered….whatever that means.

      Enter TRANSPARENCY!

      First, what is the exact amount of money recovered? Second, what happened to the money?
      RTH & Ken wrote and promised that RTH would go through an internal review with regards to this whole incident. The outcome of the review remains unknown, as of this writing, and a considerable number of donors is still not informed as to whatever happened to the money they donated for a humanitarian cause.
      It still remains a mystery to what happened to a 5-digit amount of dollars.

      Let’s call a spade a spade. Everyone on this planet is judged for their actions. Everyone. Why not activists as well? People who want to be called activists and advocates of truth, justice & peace should not have the audacity to demand their actions not be criticized. Especially, when their actions depended on other people’s money.

      When either an individual or an organization ask for donations, automatically they are bound to be transparent, accountable and truthful to everyone. Let alone that being transparent is an ethical obligation. Suspicions are raised when someone constantly denies to give answers. It’s not humiliating to give answers. Not to mention that if one has nothing to hide, when providing answers, he will gain more support and respect.

      Unless of course the ultimate purpose of an activist is not to offer his services for a humanitarian cause but to just create an image about himself, create a persona and remain in the limelight. One marketing strategy is creating negative publicity. It might be negative, but it’s still publicity. If these are the ultimate goals of someone, who wants to call himself an “activist”, then so be it. But then, he will have to deal with the consequences as well.

      I’m in sincere hope that your article on Ken’s taking things to the media will come out soon, as he surely needs advice to take things to ADR with regards to the latest saga of Trade-Not-Aid & Samouni Project.

      It does sounds rather familiar.
