The truth is out there! As mentioned in this article, this guy does have several books published on the subject. I looked 'em up on Amazon.com. I could've bought a used copy of one for one cent plus four dollars shipping. Dabbled with the notion, but decided it wasn't worth it!

It sells papers, that is their main aim and what makes their owners rich!

Well, it's certainly a topic that's guaranteed to elicit polarised points of view, often expressed with language to match Smile

Needless to say tonight's BBC R4 interview with the guy was somewhat more toned down and rational than the stance taken by the paper - which has its own agenda (as mentioned by DaveW)

It would be extremely useful to all interested parties attempting to gain a better understanding of this subject if every scrap of info about it was in the public domain, without the usual range of caveats being applied to such material - as is currently the case with even the bits we are allowed to see.

Hi there,

Nick Pope is an #####---e. I don't know how anyone could describe him as an MOD Chief. He was a junior civil sevant given the job of reviewing reports on "Sightings" that had be made known to the MOD.

He has since made a living blowing his own trumpet and trying to make out he is the British Mulder from X-Files.

Nobody should take any notice of anything this guy writes.
