I thought we had one of those : I hate using browser bookmarks now so :

nice evocative article for 70's era kids

How the power of witchcraft gripped 70s Britain

Unearthed documentaries show us the changing face of the modern witch, and how the neo-pagan became a viable alternative for the era’s disillusioned youth

also Fortean Times # 354 June-2017 has a pretty good article on 70's hauntology ( Scarfolk etc ) that I grokked - alongside some other snippets - the bizarre gnostic-style church at Rennes Le Chateu had some carvings vandalised by an Islamist nutter supposedly - sad

Have you ever met a witch, semper? I've met one, but didn't realise until some time afterwards that she was thus. They have a tell. They must inform you that they are a witch - be it in deadly earnest, frivilously, or somewhere in between - before they can wield power over you.
They are born and not made.

No I don't believe so. I mean I met Francis King & his wife bitd when I was a kid interested in this stuff. He used to be a tax inspector & had been taken as a POW in Korea & been subject to the Chinese "brain-washing" or re-education that they did on the POW's. And Christina 0akley H@rrington who runs Tre@dwells bookshop is a practicing witch. Be fascinated to know more.

Reading the book Chameleo I came across this in the footnotes...
Not to drag the quality of articles posted in here down or anything... I just thought this was of note:

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/underco ... 66814.html
A London police force is being sued over claims that it used two undercover dwarfs to carry out an anti-terror search.

A Russian doctor is claiming £55,000 saying City of London Police officers also sexually assaulted him and took his DNA to carry out "covert biological experiments".

Dr Alexander Sobko, of South Kensington, claims the "smiling" dwarfs approached him at a bus stop and searched him under the Terrorism Act. The case will be considered by a High Court judge and the City force has engaged lawyers at taxpayers' expense to defend the action.

A City police spokesman said: "We have instructed lawyers to contest the allegations."

The following day the Evening Standard reported a story about undercover cops busting a crack-dealing dwarf... keyword hijacking is that what they call it?

Has 60s' serial killer 'Jack the Stripper' finally been unmasked? Boxing champ Freddie Mills 'told Scotland Yard detective who headed investigation that he murdered six women'

Six women were found strangled and naked in west London during 1964-5
First victim, Hannah Tailford, had her underwear wedged down her throat
Book claims boxer-turned-actor Mills admitted to 'Hammersmith Nude Murders'
A Freemason, he confessed to fellow mason Chief Superintendent John du Rose
Mills 'arranged his own death by getting Krays to have hitman assassinate him'
Boxer was found dead in his car with a rifle between his knees in July 1965


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... Mills.html

The murders of six young women, whose strangled, naked bodies were dumped on wasteground in west London, horrified 1960s Britain.

The serial killer, dubbed Jack the Stripper, was never found, but now a journalist claims he has compelling evidence it was British world champion boxer-turned-actor Freddie Mills, who was a Freemason.
He believes that Mills admitted his guilt to the Scotland Yard detective - and fellow Freemason - in charge of the investigation.

Former Sun crime reporter Michael Litchfield advances his theory in a compelling new book. Below is a preview of The Secret Life Of Freddie Mills.


**********************

one of the bodies was found down by Chiswick Bridge at a spot whose former local nickname - Gobbler's Gulch - gives some idea of its reputation at the time. Its been gentrified since & I sometimes visit the golf driving range there. One of the victims had some sort of acquaintance with Steven Ward of the Profumo Affair.

Taleb has a wonderous insight and biting wit, especially when dealing with sensitive issues that interest me. Thoroughly enjoyed that. He manages to explain his thoughts in great detail using as little langauge as possible. Thanks for posting.
