This seems to refer to a blog Icke pub'd in 2007 referring to something he had said about Heath in the 1990s about the latter's conduct in the 1950s.

Heath has been dead for 9 years! Icke "combines discussion about the universe and consciousness with conspiracy theories about public figures being satanic paedophiles, and how apparently unconnected events are really attempts to control humanity. He argued in The Biggest Secret that human beings originated in a breeding program run by a race of reptilians called Anunnaki from the Draco constellation, and that what we call reality is just a holographic experience; the only reality is the realm of the Absolute. He believes in a collective consciousness that has intentionality, in reincarnation, in other possible worlds that exist alongside ours on other frequencies, and in acquired characteristics, arguing that our experiences change our DNA by downloading new information and overwriting the software. We are also able to attract experiences to ourselves by means of good and bad thoughts" [wikipedia]

So he has much form in his accusations about Heath [see my underline above], & is generally regarded as a bit of a 'case'(despite his being an ex-goalkeeper like so many distinguished people from Arthur Conan Doyle to Che Guevara to, er, MtheGM!)

So, out of interest, Dick ~~ Why on earth are you bringing all this up at this time of day?

Regards
~Michael~

Nevertheless, as my quote from Wikipedia above shows, Icke has long form for making such accusations, which nobody ever seems to have taken too seriously. Not that that, esp in the Savile context, need be definitive; but he does appear somewhat reminiscent of the boy who cried "wolf"; and to be something of a sensationalist attention-seeker, and more than somewhat of a fantasist.

Celebrity Net Worth
Does The Royal Family Take Advantage Of UK Taxpayers?
Random Celebrity Article By Brian Warner on July 19, 2013

Being born into royalty might be the greatest stroke of luck anyone on the planet could have. No matter how modern or advanced our society has become, many of today's Kings and Queens are some of the richest people on the planet. And all they had to do was be born. The King of Thailand, Bhumibol Adulyadej, has a personal net worth of $30 billion! By comparison, Queen Elizabeth of England is a mere pauper with a net worth of $450 million. On the other hand, Queen Elizabeth and her entire family are some of the most famous and powerful people in the world. But have you ever wondered how the British royal family makes money? Are they a big group of inbred moochers who take advantage of the UK taxpayer? You be the judge…
Queen Elizabeth and Guards

How Does the Royal Family Make Money?

Queen Elizabeth II is considered a "constitutional monarch" which essentially means that she acts as head of state within the boundaries of a constitution. She is not an absolute monarch like for example King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia who has zero regulations or restrictions on how he chooses to rule. Today, Queen Elizabeth's role in British politics is largely symbolic. Her role has been described as a "focus of national unity", or in other words "a tourist attraction". On the other hand, all British public servants (police, military, postal carriers etc) are required to swear an oath of loyalty to her Majesty. Furthermore, technically speaking British people are not "citizens" they are the Queen's subjects. And if that wasn't bad enough, the taxpayers of Great Britain do indeed subsidize the Queen and her extended Family's lavish lifestyles.

Whoever is the reigning King or Queen of England is is the benefactor of "The Crown Estate". The Crown Estate is a $13 billion real estate portfolio that has been passed down by generations of British royals dating as far back as the 11th century. The portfolio includes nearly $10 billion worth of urban property and $3 billion worth of rural land. The Crown Estate owns golf clubs, parks, apartment buildings, retail space, mineral rights and much more. It even technically owns the marine life reaching 12 nautical miles off the coast of England. In 2012, profits from The Crown Estate were nearly $400 million!

Does all that money go directly to the Queen's bank account? Not since 1760. After running up an embarrassing amount of public debt in the early 1700s, King George III was forced to surrender his family's hereditary rights to The Crown Estate in exchange for an annual allowance of $1.3 million. That $1.3 million allowance, which is the equivalent to $190 million in modern dollars, was to pay for the King's household expenses and royal obligations. The annual allowance was adjusted periodically but stayed relatively unchanged for more than two hundred years. In April 2012, Parliament passed the "Sovereign Grant" which entitles the sitting monarch to the rough equivalent of 15% of revenues from The Crown Estate. The remaining money goes directly to the Treasury. The Queen does not actually profit off The Crown Estate, she is just entitled to services equivalent to the predetermined amount. Services like travel, security and maintenance at the "Occupied Royal Palaces". Typically, Queen Elizabeth uses between $40 and $60 million worth of public services each year. In 2012 The British government spent a grand total of $52 million on property upkeep, communication, security and travel expenses for The Queen. Perhaps most importantly, The Queen saves countless millions every year by not having to pay any rent, mortgages or property tax on her various castles. But wait… there's more!
Royal Family Portrait

The Royal Family

What might really make your blood boil is that The Queen does not pay any taxes on these state provided benefits. However, since 1992 she has voluntarily agreed to pay personal and capital gains tax on her other sources of private income, like any other taxpayer. The Queen's private income, also known as the Privy Purse, is mainly derived from her ownership of The Duchy of Lancaster, a 46,000 acre territory that has been passed down to the sitting monarch since 1399. The Queen earns around $25 million per year off The Duchy of Lancaster and she uses this money to fund expenses incurred by the extended Royal Family. There is only one other Duchy in England, The Duchy of Cornwall.

The Duchy of Cornwall was established in 1337 and is passed to the eldest living heir of the reigning British monarch. Up until April 2013, The Duchy of Cornwall could only be passed to a male heir and the monarch did not have a son, the estate was held by the Crown for the next generation. Prince Charles is the current Duke of Cornwall and when he becomes King, the Duchy passes to Prince William and in turn to William's eldest child when William is king. Thanks to April's "Succession of the Crown Act", if Kate Middleton has a girl, when William becomes king that child will be the first woman in history to inherit the Duchy. The Duchy is roughly the size of the city of Chicago and produces income mainly from apartment rentals, agriculture sales and natural resources. In 2012, the Duchy of Cornwall produced an income of $31.77 million for Charles. After $15.22 million worth of costs were removed Prince Charles was left with $16.55 million. He voluntarily pays a 40% tax rate on that income which equaled roughly $6.71 million last year. The total estimated value of the Duchy of Cornwall is $1.3 billion. Interestingly, though Charles volunteers to pay taxes, the Duchy itself does not. Think of the Duchy of Cornwall like a corporation that does not have to pay any taxes. For example, the Duchy owns the land that houses Dartmoor prison. Dartmoor pays $2 million in rent to the Duchy for the use of that land. No tax is paid on that $2 million. Many royal critics cry foul at this arrangement and would love to see the Duchy pay capital gains and corporate taxes like any other major business operation.

As a helicopter search and rescue pilot for the Royal Air Force Prince William earned $70,000 a year and his brother Prince Harry currently makes $60,000 as a Captain in the British Army. William and Harry also inherited a $10 million trust fund established by their late mother, Princess Di. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh is entitled to an annual salary of $580,000 for his duties as the Queen's spouse. Additional annuities in the $200-$400,000 range exist for The Duke of York, The Earl of Wessex, The Duke of Gloucester and various other Princesses and Duchesses. Every year, Queen Elizabeth reimburses the state for these annuities from her own bank accounts.

Dick, I don't think anyone is going to disagree that the Royal Family is extremely wealthy, but that seems to be getting away from what you first asked, which (if I understand correctly) is whether Edward Heath was a paedophile rapist and mass-murderer. The idea is preposterous, as are all of Icke's ludicrous fantasies.

Some years ago I read a great sci-fi short story. Following a TV hypnotist programme in which everyone watching is hypnotised, the hypnotist orders everyone to "wake up". One person watching wakes up completely, and immediately discovers the world is being run by a bunch of loathsome lizards from another galaxy who have hypnotised humans into perceiving them as fellow humans. It's obviously where Icke got his hilarious theory from, but as my reading the story pre-dates it by many years I have no details of author or date of publication. Can anyone help with that?

Yes I think David Icke was correct in his outing of Heath. In the same book he also outed Jimmy Saville.
The link below is a short interview also outing Heath.

I have read lots of info that David has written and he always provides back up for his theories.

Taking people out of their comfort zones is a difficult thing, most people don't want to there, easier to do no research and make fun of the subject and the person posting it.

Still, I have no doubt that Heath & the Queen managed it all by the simple expedient of riding thru hyperspace to Planet Zog and getting up to all this nefariousness in its notoriously fœtid atmosphere.

I'm all for wind up, but just in case our cousins are reading this thread, (one at least will be moderating it) Will those defending Icke please make your dry sense of humour known? Jokes tend to be more literal over the pond, (though no less funny to be fair.)

Although there is nothing funny in calling a person who spent his adult life trying to do something for his country a paedophile. I may not have agreed with his politics in most matters, but without evidence, it's neither nice nor clever to perpetuate such fantasy is it?   he isn't here to defend himself. If he were, Icke wouldn't have dared print it. It's one thing to say someone is an alien lizard, it's another to accuse them of something that could feasibly happen.

Not that he would have to.

Neither would the special branch team looking after him from the minute he became PM to the day he died.

Patrish, I'm sorry to say you let me down. The link you provided did not provide any back-up. In fact I can't recall Icke providing any back-up for any of his "theories" - theories which I am sure any psychiatrist would recognise as fairly common paranoid delusions. All that is different about Icke is that he probably has more than most, and has made a lot of money from them.

But you seem to know more about him than me. Perhaps you can explain all his ideas and what sort of proof he has. I believe the latest one is that the moon is really an artificial satellite which beams hypnotising telepathic radio waves which enslave humans so we can't see the evil lizards controlling us, but if I'm a little behind I would be fascinated to know what the most recent developments on Planet Icke are.

And while you're at it, can you explain as well why the lizard-men haven't rubbed David out yet. He must have irritated them a lot over the years, and as they control absolutely everything the elimination of just one uppity little human can't be too much of a problem.

Musk: Re Bob Bolder. You miss the point of my collection; which is of distinguished people in other fields than football who have incidentally also been goalkeepers at some period in their lives. Some others I would name are all 3 of The Three Tenors: Carreras actually signed amateur papers for Barça. Mr Bolder was just one of a pretty fair number who have been professional goalkeepers but is noted for no other attribute at all. I could "mention" heaven knows how many of them!

Snail - Thank you; but both Bohr brothers are already well established on my list.

As folk people, did you all know that Noel Murphy was goalkeeper for several seasons for Ireland Schoolboys. I remember a scratch kickabout game at one Norwich Folk festival in which he kept goal for one team and I for the other.

Jesus and Mohammed seem to be sharing the honours at present. But Icke does come a close third.

I would say fourth after the Flying Spaghetti Monster but pastafarianism seems quite logical at times.....

I do have problems with these threads. If we are all trying to find witty piss taking then fine. But all it takes is one poor sod who is gullible to pop up and the rest of us are mocking the afflicted.

That said, lizards are fair game. Accusing real people of murder and paedophilia is a but distasteful, especially when the author is wallowing in fantasy. A bit like those nutters who shamefully can't accept that Princess Di had a car crash. Sick buggers have to look for conspiracy and, like Icke, pick on a family not in a position to fight back.

Either that or I take my hat off to Icke for being the best wind up merchant since those who wrote the gospels.

Ah, Musket, you were being funny. Sorry; but as I had never heard of Mr Bolder or his nefarious doings, I fear the joke fell flat for my part; tho no doubt there were 3, or maybe even 4, readers of the thread that got it.

We have been into Diana Spencer's death many times before. I will just say, yet again, that she was being driven by an experienced professional driver, & experienced professional drivers who wish to continue professionally experiencing driving, for the purpose of the necessary maintenance of themselves and their dependents, do NOT get pissed while on the job & proceed to kill their passengers 'by accident'. You explain how M Paul came to be in that state other than by some form of fixing or sabotage, and I will believe that her (astonishingly convenient to all sorts of important people) death was not a case of murder in some form. Till then, I frankly believe it is you who are being disingenuous.

Conspiracies do exist but are almost invariably unmasked. Conspiracy theories, which are by all rational measures unsustainable, persist because people delude themselves into only accepting evidence for the conspiracy and conveniently ignoring the evidence against.
The principle of Occam's razor suggests that the simplest hypothesis is usually the correct one — or as the character Gil Grissom in "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" succinctly puts it, if you hear hoofbeats, "think horses, not zebras."

As a regulator in healthcare, I referred a consultant colo rectal surgeon to The GMC when he was arrested after stuffing his car one hour after leaving theatre and he was automatically breathalysed by attending officers.

When looking at risk management I found that this was not a one off. Many people in high stress jobs can go to pot. My own liver had some hammer when I was feeding the beast for that matter. Mrs Musket never drinks for at least 24 hours after a theatre list even though she is not on call for complications. It is rare but not unknown.

One of Prince Charles's special branch lads was kicked out after a random breath test they are liable to immediately after driving with HRH in the back.

How many drink drivers need their licence for their work ? Back to doctors, enough lose their licence yet just about every one did their stint in A&E clearing up the human carnage of drink drivers and their results.

Guest Squeezer: Some years ago I read a great sci-fi short story. Following a TV hypnotist programme in which everyone watching is hypnotised, the hypnotist orders everyone to "wake up". One person watching wakes up completely, and immediately discovers the world is being run by a bunch of loathsome lizards from another galaxy who have hypnotised humans into perceiving them as fellow humans. It's obviously where Icke got his hilarious theory from, but as my reading the story pre-dates it by many years I have no details of author or date of publication. Can anyone help with that?


The short story was "Eight O'Clock in the Morning" by Ray Nelson, published in, I think, "Astounding" in around 1962-63 and featured in a couple of 60s sci-fi anthologies of short stories. I believe John Carpenter made a film based on the story in the mid 80s, called something like "They Live", but you're correct, it was definitely originally a Ray Nelson story. I have about 3 copies of it in various anthologies (bit of a sci-fi nut, me) and always think when I re-read it that it MUST have been where Icke got his ideas from.

Hi,

The link below takes you to David's latest book "The Perception Deception" If you scroll down you can read some of the reviews.

This is for the person that wanted to know what David was doing now. He has also started a TV station called The Peoples Voice.

I think it should be made clear that David outed both Heath and Saville in 1999 in his book "The Biggest Secret" when both were still alive.(Heath died in 2005 and Saville in 2011)

As for all the money he has made - he lives in a one bedroom flat on the Isle of Wight and drives an old Mondeo - not really the trappings of wealth.

I saw him at Wembley Arena in 2012 and was very impressed. It was a 9 hour presentation - I have added a link to this below. In his presentations and books he provides many links so that you can check out the source documents yourself. He also reminds his readers and/or audience to do their own research. Not bad advice.

Rob Naylor - Thanks very much indeed for that. I've just tracked down the story on s6.zetaboards.com and it's the one I had in mind.

Patrish - First of all I have to make an admission - I haven't read any of Icke's books, and certainly don't have the mental stamina to sit through 9 hrs of him, so you could fairly say that I'm not in a position to argue against him in detail, only by criticising what I've actually heard him say on video, or read on the web.

A year or two ago I was curious enough about his beliefs to look at his website and do a little internet research about him. I suppose you could say I am partly amused and partly exasperated by what he says, and also fascinated and puzzled by why his ideas have such a hold on some people. I wonder if those people all have something in common, and if so what. I suspect it doesn't have much to do with intelligence or education, simply because I knew a man who had plenty of both who accepted without question every crack-pot conspiracy theory he came across. (One day, when he was happily married, he just stopped believing it all). As far as that goes, you don't seem stupid or uneducated either. But then intelligence or education have nothing to do with delusions, and some delusions (as Tunesmith has noted above) are even approved by the dominant culture of a society. (By "delusion" I mean a logical system of thought and belief which is based on an untruth. When the delusion has a threatening nature it is a paranoid delusion.)

There are many intelligent people who sincerely believe, for instance, that the universe is governed by invisible spirits, that their thoughts are controlled by radio waves, that the lady next door kidnaps and eats little children. Some of these people are looked after in hospital institutions, some work for religious institutions, some live lives that are otherwise quite normal and productive.

Perhaps it's mainly Icke's personality which is more convincing than what he says. It's certainly not any proof for belief which convinces, because of proof he hasn't a shred. I mean, proof of a sort that would be acceptable to a scientist or detective. He boldly states a bizarre opinion (the moon is an alien spaceship, the world is run by shape-shifting lizards, governments deliberately weaken children's immune systems by vaccinations) with no pretence at independent verification, other than, for instance, a claim that ancient Hebrews believed this and it's in the Bible, or the same symbol appears here and here so the has to be an underlying conspiracy, or this word resembles that word so there must be connection.

I'm not saying that there aren't conspiracies or secret government programmes going on, or that the rich and power do not have, well …. wealth and power. Nor that intelligent people can't believe in David Icke. I will say that it's possible to be intelligent and foolish at the same time.

It is of course a feature of a delusion that that rational proof makes no impact at all on it. I remember a psychiatric worker once telling me about a man who believed he had two hearts. In an attempt to defeat his delusion they showed him an x-ray of his chest, but he just said it was someone else's. The delusion was too important to him to be affected by proof of the opposite.

If there's one thing David Icke has it's personality. When he's in good form he is a fluent and persuasive speaker – conversational but very much in charge, with energy and flashes of humour, and a good command of his points of argument (what in other circumstances might be called "facts"). Once his points are taken as facts, and a kind of logic applied to develop them into a systematic belief, and the logic slanted to appear threatening, then you have a sort of religion based on what is usually called conspiracy theory – the belief that ordinary people are puppets made to move at the command of other humans, or of aliens from outer space, and that nothing in books, newspapers, the internet, TV, or radio, is true. Once you accept that nothing you are told is true, you have sealed yourself into a tiny enclosed space where the same stale air is continually circulated and the outside atmosphere is poison.

Squeezer, I liked your reply apart from the last bit. Far from being in a sealed room, I feel if thats where I have escaped from.

I don't think it is healthy to blindly follow anyone or anything. David Icke makes you think, makes you ask questions. He beleives that we are all one and that we all have infinite possibilites and that love is a huge power.

Your Psychiatric friend reminds me of aquote from Franz Fanon "Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect that core belief, they will rationalise, ignore and even deny anything that does not fit with the core belief"

This is often the case with some of the conspiracy theories that came true

Another way of describing cognitive dissonance is called "The elephant in the room" We can all see it but it takes too much from the comfort zone, so it's ignored.

I could go on with various examples, but this thread is about Icke and Heath. Why didn't Heath or Saville sue Icke for liable? Saville in particular was very quick to threaten journalists if they suggested he liked them young.

I think its a good thing to question what the Main Stream Media tell us, it would be naive to believe it all.

Cheers for now,

Patrish x

Well, there is something we can agree on – I don't believe everything in main stream media either. But the things I disbelieve are mainly the things everyone else disbelieves too, such as how the welfare of ordinary people is important to David Cameron. Some things I might be dubious about, but I don't automatically disbelieve everything on principle as, it seems to me, a lot of conspiracy theorists do.

And we can agree that there are conspiracies around, and that governments and multinationals have secret plans and operations of one sort or another. Not all of these are malign. Actually, I'm quite glad that the UK government has an anti-terrorist department which has had some success, and I would be surprised if multinational drug companies are not working hard on producing drugs to combat or even cure some of the diseases which destroy the lives and happiness of so many people. Your clicky link didn't work for me so I can't comment on conspiracies or secret operations which have been proved to exist; I'll just say that it's naïve to expect governments to admit to projects of this kind just because a journalist asks them. For instance, for years the Pentagon denied that there was anything resembling stealth aircraft in the planning. Quite correctly, they lied in order to keep security.

I agree entirely with your comment on cognitive dissonance and the elephant in the room scenario, (though I don't think they are quite the same thing) but what is troubling about most conspiracy theorists is the absence of rational analysis, or the consideration of reasonable alternatives, or the application of known facts; and the tendency instead to prefer instead the most fanciful and extreme of interpretations. I suppose a lot of them are young teenagers who subscribe to the idea that if you believe anything with enough sincerity it becomes true, and who have no interest in finding out, for instance, how the physical world really works. And so they believe in vampires and shape-shifting monsters and everything Hollywood sci-fi can produce, and because everyone they know believes in the Illuminati then that just has to be true too. They are unaware that the existence of a Nazi Zionist organisation is as impossible as time-travel. But then, many conspiracy theorists are not ignorant teenagers, but apparently just as impressionable.

I can't answer your questions about Heath and Saville. I don't know, and unlike conspiracy theorists I won't present an opinion as a fact. It seems that Saville's activities were well known about in media circles, and presumably David Icke picked up a tip from an insider. Although Saville was never questioned, the weight of consistent allegations seems overwhelming. Presumably he decided that it wasn't a good idea to invite any sort of investigation and hoped Icke would be ignored. Heath might have decided to not sue for libel for a couple of reasons; we will never know for sure. But Icke hasn't "outed" Heath, in the sense that he has revealed him to be a paedophile. He has merely made an allegation. And if you accept that the allegation is true without considering any reasons why it might be completely wrong then you are doing precisely what you say you want to avoid – i.e. becoming the sort of person who accepts uncritically everything you are told. The last thing David Icke wants you to do is to ask reasonable questions about his many fantastic theories, or to keep a reasonably open mind. Remember, if you open your mind too much, your brain falls out.

So Patrish, can reveal just how much an Icke disciple you are? Do you believe humanity is enslaved by a race of shape-shifting telepathic lizards from "the constellation of Draco" (whatever that means.) That alternatively (or additionally) humanity is enslaved by a trans-national organisation of Nazi Zionists, the so-called Illuminati? That the moon is a giant artificial satellite built by the lizard-men to beam hypnotic radio waves at us? That vaccination against disease is an evil plan by the government to weaken the immune systems of young children? That the DVLA is a front for a sinister organisation which keeps hundreds of young children in disused Welsh coalmines for use in satanic rites? (I made one of those up by the way.)

Musket, if it involves lots of singing, swearing, and drinking, sign me up. may as well get in at the start. That is how the money is made.

I thought I'd try to make it look different to Christian services myself, but if you think borrowing their clothes might make us more dosh?

Rational analysis - there is loads of it, but people don't want to know it - comfort zone or cognitive dissonance. take 9/11 for an example, architect and engineers for 9/11 truth - if you google that you will get loads of rational analysis

Am I a David Icke disciple - no

How far down the rabbit hole have I gone? I don't know, but I know there is no getting out.
Vaccination - follow the money

"architect and engineers for 9/11 truth" is an organisation set up by an architect, Richard Gage, who appears to have lost his way, and spends his time touring the world preaching a conspiracy theory which if you look elsewhere appears to have been well and truly debunked by real scientists.
If you are really doubting the efficacy of vaccination, I suspect you are already so far down the rabbit hole that any attempt to involve you in a reasoned debate is doomed to failure.

No problem Patrish. One of the small things you have to put up with though is the pisstaking that rational bastards like me come out with.

The internet isn't a good place to entertain fantasy. You tend to he taken at face value and that will never do eh?

Hope you are still there Patrish. Been unwell for a few days.

You suggest that vaccination is a racket just to make money. Sure, vaccinations make money for drug companies, like any products do for their manufacturers. It's the way human economic systems are set up, for better or worse depending on the product. The point about vaccinations is that they work, and so prevent a lot of misery, disability, and unnecessary death. Smallpox used to a killer – it's now been eradicated. Sixty years ago kids were paralysed or dead from polio – it doesn't happen in the West now. And a few years ago many people refused to have their children vaccinated against measles – so there was a measles epidemic last year in Swansea in which thousands were ill and, I believe, one died.

Sorry, but I couldn't follow what you said about rational analysis. It seems to me that the problem is there isn't enough.

You don't sound very happy just now, in fact I get the impression you feel somehow trapped in a particular mindset. That rabbit hole might be leading you to a fantasy world in which nothing is as it seems and logic is upside down. While you still have some insight, keep in mind that sometimes (perhaps a lot more often than you might think) things really are as they seem, and a little common sense will take you a long way.

Just don't keep a disturbed irrational mind though.

Not nice when people laugh in your face and suggest B&B at the funny farm.

They love eggs by the way. Flies are fine but eggs are better.

Actually, the rational analysis has been done by the engineers who've debunked this conspiracy theory thoroughly and effectively, to the same level that the "moon landings were faked" conspiracy has been debunked.
