Well no sooner had yesterday's Blog appeared on line, when hack writer Paul Rusling snapped back with his answer to our editorial, and here is what he wrote:
"Posted by Paul Rusling on July 4, 2022, 12:49 pm
"Those who aren't sure of their own sexuality or identity are bound to get their knickers in a twist sometimes, especially over timelines.
Nothing specific about the topic, or the actual subject matter to begin with, just another childish comment attacking the messenger and not responding to the message.
"I've been in and around a fair few projects and one thing I do know is that the over-riding concern is to get the project operational, the funds in, the team looked after and a hundred and one other essentials. Few will worry about getting the paperwork correct, fewer still will make reporting the finer details to the authorities a priority. And especially when it concerns an offshore radio station and even more so if it was the first off the UK."
Rusling began a general response about his own general experiences, which the record shows has resulted in a lot of wasted money, time and effort from those who had the misfortune to engage the services of Paul Rusling. But even so, he wants everyone to know this ....
"The use of the 'branch of foreign company' loophole used by Caroline was an excellent choice - they didn't need to impress prospective shareholders, as these had all been recruited in Autumn 63 and Caroline had plenty of dosh in the tank - certainly enough to bale out the limping Radio Atlanta in June 64.
Notice that Rusling begins writing about a "the use of the branch of a foreign company loophole used by Caroline ...." but, as we have previously pointed out, 'Radio Caroline' did not exist as a company, and if it did not exist as a company, then it could hardly exploit "the branch of foreign company loophole"! For that matter 'it' could not "bale" out anything?
An educational note for Rusling: "Bale is a large bound stack of material, such as hay or leather; Bail is the security deposit that's paid if someone who's been temporarily released from jail pending a trial doesn't appear in court."
If 'Radio Caroline' did not exist as a company, it did not exist as a "branch" of what Rusling calls a "foreign company loophole." Note: It didn't "bail out" 'Radio Atlanta'.
Rusling has sold his misinformation to idiotic anoraks in order to put cash in his own pocket. Rusling has no scruples, he is a literary thief, a hack writer and a peddler of absolute rubbish! But, he goes on ....
"The timeline of Radio Caroline has been known about for some years and is chronicled in the Radio Caroline Bible (and elsewhere). Oonagh was queen of the admin and ensured the legals were observed. Caroline's selling agents (Planet Productions of Dublin) were hosted at Chesterfield Gardens by UK company Rosewood, who had leased the property from its owner.
Rusling begins by shamelessly pushing his absurd book 'The Radio Caroline Bible', and relating it to unnamed sources that supposedly support his sales pitch for his own rubbish. He refers to a "queen of admin". Now the logical question to ask is this: What exactly is this "queen of admin" supposed to be administering? If there is no company, how can this phantom that does not exist have an administrator? Rusling also says that this "queen of admin" was a person qualified to ensure that the law of the land was observed. Well, that was not hard to do, was it? If there was no company to administer, then the non-existent company could not violate the law, any law, could it?
Now this is where Rusling engages in bait and switch. One minute he is talking about a non-existent company and the next minute he is referring by name to a company in Ireland. It is called 'Planet Productions', he says, and it is "Caroline's selling agents". Now this is where Rusling strips himself bare of any pretense that he has the slightest, the vaguest idea of what he is talking about! He says that this company called 'Planet Productions of Dublin' were "Caroline's selling agents". But, no, they were not!
Clearly, Rusling has never read the documents created and filed by that real company. We have. In fact they are sitting right here as this is being typed! First of all that company was not created as "Caroline's selling agents". In fact, and it is a fact, there is nothing, absolutely nothing in that file relating to that company which even mentions 'Caroline' - with one exception. That exception has to do with the later addition of Phillip Solomon and another company that he had formed, and that information appears after Solomon's name to explain what Solomon did for a living! But it was totally unrelated to the company in question. But the company called 'Planet Productions' were not "Caroline's selling agents". In fact, that Dublin company was not allowed to legally trade in the United Kingdom because it was not registered in the United Kingdom, and neither was any offshoot.
Next, 'Planet Productions' were not "hosted at Chesterfield Gardens by UK company Rosewood, who had leased the property from its owner." Again, Rusling, the totally ignorant con-man who wants to sell his lack of knowledge to unfortunate anoraks, seems to be oblivious to the fact that whatever 'Rosewood' was, it was not the lessee of Chesterfield Gardens! Rusling makes 'stuff' up. Rusling is a fraudster in print for money. He is a con-man. But here is Rusling's response:
"Critics should note that "If a company's registered office is also the home of one director, it is not required to display its name at the address." Dormand companies need not display 'brass plates' either.
That statement is such rubbish in this context that clearly Rusling has not read the legal inspection documents relating to the use of Chesterfield Gardens, or what Ronan O'Rahilly said to UK government officials when confronted with the facts: the occupants of Chesterfield Gardens who were passing themselves of as having a relationship to 'Radio Caroline', were breaking the laws of the United Kingdom!
What Rusling has written and even misspelt, is total and utter rubbish which demonstrates that he knows nothing about the story behind 'Radio Caroline', and he knows nothing about the laws that apply to British business! Rusling is a fake legal expert because Rusling lacks any qualifications to render legal explanations of this type. Consequently his advice is totally in error and therefore worthless! But typical of Rusling, he then blames his wife for his own lack of knowledge!:
"My wife (who trained as a charted Company Secretary) informs me that the rules have change nine times in her time doing this - the 2008 law has most to say about it as it now allows rotating multiple companiy names to be shown on a screen. inside a building. The notion of 'brass plate on an outside wall' companies went out many decades ago.
Spike Milligan in his book 'Silly Verse for Kids', once wrote: "String is strong but rope is thicker. Therefore the higher the fewer." Spike makes more sense than Rusling's analogy. His wife and his wife's comments are totally unrelated to this topic. Rusling might just well explain why today, coal mines are a booming business in Asia, and they are! But that information is unrelated to anything being discussed here.
Now Rusling switches gears again and wants to talk about the BBC, but unfortunately Rusling does not understand the history of the BBC either! It would appear that Paul Rusling does not even know how to spell the abbreviation for a person hailing from north of the country border of England!
"The first broadcasting transgressor was the BBC, which began broadcasting in November 1922 (almost 100 years ago) but didn't get a licence until January - 2 months later. The dour Scott (Reith) and his 3 henchmen had far too much on their hands, setting up radio stations and recruiting staff to bother about filing the paperwork with the correct Executive Agency of the Government."
How anyone can treat this fool like an educated man and be so foolish as to buy any sort of a published work from him is just beyond intelligent belief.
Unfortunately there are several unintelligent people out there who are buying Rusling's unintelligent publications, and no doubt, they are getting hurt as a result.
