That question was posed in response to our previous post:
".... as the blog says lots of lies become truth but when does the truth become fact!."
The answer is that truth is fact when the facts are true. But that question was followed by another question, possibly by another person using another phony identity, but on the same Blog, and that person preceded their question with this statement:
".... you're on a hiding to nothing with this Managing Director business. Of course you won't find a legitimate company."
Then came the question that was more in the form of a statement that the writer wanted us to endorse:
"Ask yourself this: If you were setting up or running an illegal or semi- illegal enterprise, would you leave a creditable paper trail for someone to find, or come clean at a later date? Of course you wouldn't. You would leave smokescreen after smokescreen and that's exactly what they did. It is no great shock horror scandal that you cannot put all the pieces together. It is something that everyone knew all along."
This is a typical anorak response because we have found more than one legitimate company with regards to the Radio Caroline (1964-1967) operation, and they were not illegal or semi-illegal enterprises!
It is very difficult to not leave behind a paper trail for someone to find, if you are running a legitimate enterprise, and the various companies were legitimate.
Now where the smokescreen comes into play is with two people: Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross. We debunked the claims of Ronan O'Rahilly by investigating his claims about Greenore and his father. Ronan O'Rahilly made stuff up about both topics and then other people simply quoted Ronan O'Rahilly!
When it came to Ian Cowper Ross and his 'Jimmy' story, well it was necessary to discover everything there was to know about Ian Cowper Ross and especially his father. We investigated his entire family genealogy back to New Zealand. So we know who Ian's father, mother and grandfather are, and, if we wanted to spend more time and money, we could know everything about his great-grandfather, and so on.
We also know all about his father's two marriages; his step-brother (and everything about him); Ian's court appearances for dangerous driving and causing an accident; where he went to school; his various family addresses in England, and of course the big one: what his father did for a living. He was, as we have stated before, in the dry-cleaning business. Therefore, we have of course investigated everything about that business and we even bought an old letterhead with his father listed as one of the directors. We think we know what happened to his father, meaning where and when he died.
Having dispensed with the lies we are digging deeper and deeper into the background of the companies we mentioned, and anoraks, because they are very stupid people who swallow lies and nonsense, have no idea of what we now know - apart from the snippets we have revealed.
One big snippet that we have not revealed is who was Caroline, and why was that name chosen for a radio station. We now know the answer, but we are not as yet prepared to reveal the answer.
