Political bullies come in all shapes and sizes and often the more ill-mannered ones are the easiest to discredit. Let’s take a look at this issue in a little more detail.

I was rather fascinated (and quite amused) at this somewhat rambling tirade on the OTS News site that was ‘allegedly’ written by one ‘ex-Conservative’ parliamentary hopeful , Mr Brian Duckett.

I gather that this was an emotional dummy-spitting response to an article on the verifiable dangers of unchecked ‘Street Nationalism’, which I had written in good faith before.

This was the UFO digest article in question...


It also appeared within the influential pages of this SAFF link...


I later addressed it here....



BD/TrueBlue (love that name) appears to be quite good at telling us all what we should do and what we must accept, or even ‘believe’, but he’s not really very good at taking a little well-meant analysis on the chin himself.

So it would seem that this self-promoting Tory politician (who is largely an unknown entity within the town) considers my family to be both “Peculiar” and also “Unhinged”.  He also it seems tried to wind up his readers, via asking if my family are  "travellers", knowing that this remark may generate street bias into his tirade due to the unpopularity of that particular minority. Tut tut, somewhat below the belt tactics here I felt!  

That was  not really very nice behaviour was it for 'gentlemen' previously wanted our essential votes to become our Southport MP? 

Silly name calling is also so extremely unprofessional I feel for one who wishes to advance himself so rapidly within Southport’s ‘respectable’ (no don’t laugh) political circles.

He then continues to insult me as a UFO researcher/author obviously in order to cultivate (he thinks) any customary prejudicial support for his blatantly limited position against others who merely seek greater answers in our universe and beyond. How mature is that?

Such negative bias is of course nothing original. I have a plethora of examples wherein UFO critics, with far greater intellectual aptitude than him, from all walks of life have suddenly changed opinion after seeing something strange that they could ‘not’ explain away in logical terms.

In fact if Mr Duckett/BD/TrueBlue had bothered to examine the issue a little more carefully he would see that my extensive international research has always be fair-handed and that I have discredited countless so-called UFO sighting that were nothing of the sort. How clever he must feel to possess all the answers, it must be lovely to be so self-assured!

The “grasp of reality”, that he so haughtily mentions to readers, is nothing more than evidence of his restricted and woefully out of touch world view. Is this the same “grasp of reality” that showed us all how much he was going to do for the town and then failed to carry his one-man crusade through to ultimate conclusion? Perhaps if he hangs about smiling profusely enough at Tory fund-raising events, one of his political superiors will throw him a bone or two by way of a possibility to stand in a local ward – who knows?

He also apparently seeks sympathy for other local Tory politicians (presumably Cllr Terry Jones who threatened my family via email and Cllr Ted Hartill the director of the ludicrous WWP fiasco) who I have been most privileged to report on.


Naturally, when ‘push comes to shove’ the lads do like to promptly close ranks and stick together. Could we ever expect anything more?

It’s ‘Party before Residents’ every time, to some!

This blind political allegiance, come what may, is comically reminiscent of the Three Musketeers.

‘One for all, All for one’, so no big surprise there then!

It therefore seems that divulging the truth behind some political type’s results in nothing greater than personal abuse against the writer’s family and lifestyle for having the audacity to highlight the issues at hand, including absolute deficiency towards local residents, wherever it may be found.  

 I shall not labour the fact that when one asks Cllr Ted Jones for assistance his customary response eventually appears to lead to childish legal threats against one’s family. All exceptionally peculiar stuff indeed from the indisputably mixed up, ‘Boys in Blue’ here...

Of course in political terms many would now say Mr Duckett is a ‘nonentity’ today.

Nevertheless, I wanted to simply highlight one or two issues above as I believe the Southport public do have a right to know what is behind the political situation today.

Bullies of all kinds must be challenged - for if they are not we may as well go back to the days of the Jack Boot!

To be quite honest, Mr Duckett’s pompous advice about me playing with my “fishing tackle” is perhaps the only constructive part of his crude post. This gives us more insight into how such politicians think and how they continue to treat residents who fail to tow their line.  

And the lesson in all this is? 

Disagree with highly opinionated politicians like the above and your family will soon be targeted with personal abuse and threats.

Today’s Southport political fiasco  ... can democracy ever get any ‘worse’?

Brook eyesore boarded up


11 August 2014: Update on Brook situation

Only hours after residents brought in Cllr Haydn Preece to see the destruction at the Brook pub site in Woodvale the place is secured once again.

Yesterday, we alerted Cllr Preece to the dangers of potential fire risk and increased vandalism, via having this facility wide open. 

See this link for details... 

Cllr Preece immediately  got in touch with the relevant authorities and very soon work started to secure the derelict site. 

Therefore today, 11 August 2014, the place is boarded up. 

Residents and politicians working together equal real 'People Power'...

There is still  plenty of work in this area  to be done but at least the 'will' to actually get it done remains strong. 

NB. Cllr Preece also advises that additional fencing repairs are on One Vision's list.

Woodvale's Area of Shame

 More rural and urban vandalism and neglect thanks to Council  apathy 

August 2014 update 

Some of us residents took a stroll around the Sandbrook Way and woodland area today and soon discovered that the issue of vandalism/neglect is now MUCH worse than before.

Doors at the old Sandbrook Way, Brook pub, eyesore have been kicked open. This derelict pub is now wide open and the danger of more vandalism, or potentially even  fire-starting, is ever present. 

With residential properties, holding families, attached this is NO joke! 

Brickwork and plaster have been ripped off the Brook building and pose a tripping hazard to residents. 

Residents immediately alerted Ainsdale's Cllr Haydn Preece to the problems. Haydn, as always, was quick off the mark to support residents. He instantly contacted police and authorities and is pushing for urgent action.

Action for elderly residents stonewalled by Tory Councillors - 'again'! 

Cllr Preece is also pushing for additional fence improvements, after already securing some good work on Sandbrook way. 

However, his ongoing calls to place 'precinct-enhancing' planters on the area for the benefit of elderly residents have once again been BLOCKED by Ainsdale's unhelpful Conservative councillors, Ted Hartill and Terry Jones. The Tories won't commit until decisions are made on the Brook and flats area. That leaves existing residents without an improved environment now, which is wrong as the planters could be moved at a later date.

It seems that if any good idea is not 'their' idea then they immediately stonewall it and to hell with what local residents desire! How childish is that? 

More woodwork is falling every day from the rundown Brook. How long before someone is injured here? 

More action needed! Fly tipping is an ongoing problem by the derelict flats in Sandbrook Way 

We believe with evidence at hand that a lot of this appalling decay is due to current Council apathy. 

Meanwhile, in the nearby wood, chairs that appear to have been stolen may have been taken from the broken into Brook pub. 

The woods used to be a safe area when the WWP team were regularly operational in here making improvements. 

That was 'before' the Council bosses made their mega-clanger to BAN local WWP volunteers from keeping the place in good condition. 

Regardless of amazing media/political apathy and deafening silence towards this appalling Woodvale black-spot, residents who sincerely 'care' about the area continue to highlight the worsening problems of social decay and political intransigence.  


Cllr Preece has just advised that the Brook should be boarded up today, 10 August 2014.

Peter Swift and the Secret of Genounia: The Return to Bremetennacum

By Pat Regan

My time travel ghost story, Peter Swift and the Secret of Genounia, was largely based around the ancient Roman settlement in Northern Britain at Ribchester. In those far off days this horse fort was known by the legions as Bremetennacum.

The young hero of this mysterious ghost tale is called ‘Peter Swift’ and since I wrote the novel my youngest son, Jason, has to us affectionately become the figure in this book. He also featured on the front cover of the novel. More here:

Peter Swift and the Secret of Genounia 

US Version:

UK version:

Recently I took Jason to visit the actual Roman settlement in Lancashire at Bremetennacum.

One gets the feeling that little has changed since those days of bloody encounter between the Roman invader and Celtic natives. This then for him and me was like a psychic home-coming experience.

Around AD154 the emperor Antoninus Pius had confiscated land around the Fylde region close to modern Ribchester from the Brigantes. The reason given for this provocative action was that the Celtic Brigantes tribe had embarked upon armed incursions into the land of Genounia, which was under Roman rule.

This naturally led to much tribal resentment amongst the Celts although admittedly some tribal members had gone over to the enemy and become auxilia, attracted by the promise of Roman citizenship after service with all the perks that entailed. However, more patriotic Celts stayed true to their name, regarded these fellow tribesmen as devious collaborators and shunned Roman promises preferring instead to fight the Latin invader at every opportunity. The land confiscated, their land, was granted to Roman veterans who had happily settled in Bremetennacum.

Rome did what it had to do efficiently, ruthlessly, professionally and without so much as a complaint but never liked to push limits that may well stretch its restricted resources too far.

Bremetennacum was in fact a substantial horse fort with supply stations and granaries etc. In the concluding days of the conquest Latin resources were getting thin on the ground with all manner of pressing military and political commitments being placed on weary combat units to fight off the wild barbarous tribes such as the Brigantians and Ordovices that urgently wanted to see an end to Roman dominance in Britain. Besides, significant struggles in Mother Rome meant that the departure of essential defensive troops from the hard-pressed legions further weakened the conquerors’ stranglehold over the Celtic land. 

Jason’s (Peter’s) return to this ancient place on the banks of the River Ribble felt to us to hold an imperceptible, yet very real, significance that we as yet do not quite understand.

Some things presently unknown can only be experienced on a supernatural level and not explained away in logical, everyday terms.

Southport Conservative Party continue with disgraceful attacks against local residents, following the Regan article on street nationalism


Pat Regan

As a published writer who can wax controversial at times I like to get at the truth that many others sources often fail to address. For my previous troubles to highlight the truth I have already been threatened by Southport Tory Chief, Cllr Terry Jones.

Much of this fiasco followed the recent woodland fallout issue involving volunteer whistle blowers against ‘another’ Southport Tory, Cllr Ted Hartill.

Nevertheless, more recently I wrote a revealing article on street nationalism, which highlighted inconsiderate and opinionated politicians like Brian Duckett. This missive addressed how they can directly threaten the fragile social structure that we all hold so dearly.

This was the article heading, with link, which appeared on several sites.

Here Today – Gone Tomorrow! ‘Southport’s Tory hopeful ‘stands down’

Beneath this OTS story an exceptionally infuriated poster attacked my whole family and other groups.

This highlighted post below claims to show self-promoting ex-Tory candidate for the Southport MP’s role, Mr Brian Duckett, (allegedly) on the OTS NEWS site posting here as ‘TrueBlue’ and attacking the entire Regan family, travellers and anyone who just happens to hold any interest in UFOs.

No attempt is made by the distasteful poster to explain away the convincing claims that I made in the original article at all; claims in fact that have more recently resulted in other organisations requesting my permission to utilise my article, with one generously calling it "ground  breaking." 

This is the link and quite childish post in question that responds to my original article...

TrueBlue July 30, 2014

I don’t normally comment on such puerile “news” stories, but as I am the (ex) Conservative candidate referred to, I thought I should say a few words.

For some reason, this peculiar family from Woodvale (are they ‘travellers’?), whom I have never met, spoken to or had any dealings with whatsoever, seem to have it in for me. I have read on here (in fact we’re all tired of reading on here, ad nauseum) about their rather unhinged rants against certain other Conservatives, but why they should bother with me is anyone’s guess.

But wait a minute – just look at that bizarre story on a UFO website and all becomes clear. Yes, you read that right – UFOs. I’m not one to suggest that anyone is ‘a few sandwiches short of a picnic’, but perhaps we need to look no further for an explanation.

I suggest, Mr Regan, that you stick with playing with your tackle (fishing tackle, of course) and leave politics to those who have at least some grasp of reality. Most of us are on planet earth – feel free to join us.

Over and out.



This is a snipped image of his remarks... 


Now if this poster ‘TrueBlue’ is indeed Mr Duckett (as claimed) I would ask the following about his rather rambling post.

Does his somewhat disturbing post reflect his private (or Southport Tory) opinions concerning:

  •  The entire Regan family?
  • Anyone who ‘he’ believes has mental issues?
  • Anyone who holds a serious interest in extraterrestrial life/UFOs (including many respected writers, academics and scientists)?
  •  Does his tirade reflect his own personal prejudice (or Conservative policy) against anyone with an unorthodox life style, yes including travelling folk?

His post also shows his clear support for “other Conservatives” and disdain for my innocent family as above, via his offensive comment...  

“their rather unhinged rants against certain other Conservatives, but why they should bother with me is anyone’s guess.”

Does Mr Duckett refer to ‘all’ residents who merely raise concerns against his divisive policies as unhinged” or is this just dangerously selective bias against  just 'one' specific family?

We already ‘know’ that Mr Duckett divisively demands that the rest of us accept his and David Cameron’s pious decree that we all live in a “Christian” country

If all this is true then perhaps Mr Duckett’s overly emotional approach to the complex social/political structure of the UK simply failed to impress his more level-headed Tory mandarins in London, hence his recent political failure? 

Our pluralistic society requires adult-minded politicians today who at least hold a sense of social equality, respect and balance and ‘not’ the type that I highlighted within the original article like that certain little dictator in Germany.

Internet shouting matches, under weird pseudonyms, may impress some small minds but they mean very little to me.

I may add here that I have no animosity towards Mr Duckett and my previous comments were logical observations (shared by many others) that I made in response to his seriously out of touch political views and nothing more.

Nevertheless, he is clearly unable to tolerate fair criticism and this remains his problem alone! 

I write and speak as I find under my ‘real’ name and currently the compelling evidence at hand tells me that the Southport Conservative Party has become a lost ship without a rudder on incredibly stormy seas!

Are any of us really ‘that’ surprised?

Here Today - Gone Tomorrow! 

Southport's Tory hopeful  'stands down' a few weeks after this following article (below) went international on the famous UFO DIGEST website...coincidence or the final straw?

I make 'no' specific claims, yet soon after this article was uploaded onto the UFO Digest website Southport Tory, Brian Duckett, stated the following on his Facebook page..


After much deliberation, I have removed myself from the 'List' will will not be standing as a candidate in 2015. I believe that Conservative HQ has badly mis-managed the selection process and I understand that Southport will not have a candidate in place until at least October. Whilst this may be fine for a safe seat, the very short 'run up' period of 7 months is wholly inadequate to be able to run a meaningful campaign. It's a shame - Southport was a winnable seat and I cannot understand HQ's rationale in delaying selection when at least one suitable and willing candidate was waiting in the wings and raring to go. 

This was the UFO Digest article in question...


By Pat Regan 

The latest rise of street nationalism and the dangers of subliminal religious conformity. I smell serious jeopardy today in the rise of numerous xenophobic groups that are allegedly formed to defend our homelands against foreign inroads. 

Many of these one-sided groups are quietly egged on by egocentric politicians who care very little for the damage to social harmony that their jingoistic propaganda creates. 
Admittedly, it is not hard to understand why some communities feel threatened by foreign invasion. This is an age old problem for any community. It is also one that lethargic politicians who preach political correctness should address properly. We elect the fools to properly govern us but they let us down, time after time. They rely on ancient stereotypes and communal fear of change to keep us under control (obedient to ‘their’ preordained agenda) and we let them get away with it. 
Our Land and our religion – oh, is it really? 
Some perceptive religious activists shrewdly drift into the ranks of the anxious natives then sooner or later start to call the shots, via grabbing the moral high ground. 

I have seen through this facade recently in my home town with one Tory hopeful candidate, Brian Duckett, arrogantly telling the rest of us...

“We need to accept that Britain is a Christian nation and we must stop pandering to politically correct intolerance of those from other religions.”

This type of selectively offensive mind-spin, that equates nationalism with the Church, is not only outrageously flawed but also highly dangerous. Duckett’s quasi-patriotic, bible-banging, spiel is of course nothing new and the Tory Leader David Cameron tried a comparable self-promotional line, to grab supplementary Christian right wing votes, quite recently.

Mr Cameron and Duckett are playing the same game to ingratiate themselves, as the ‘Good-guys’, with the trusting masses in a very similar fashion to Germany’s leader some years ago.
Eager to win Christian hearts Hitler previously stated...

“The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life….”

Adolf Hitler, Berlin, February 1, 1933

Many more examples exist.

NB. Of course, inflammatory and callous leaflets like Mr Duckett's are now often produced at Tory HQ to the equivalent dictums ready for the next election in order to outflank UKIP. Like all career politicians Duckett will say and do anything his Tory overseers tell him to do to acquire influence. Such is the shallow nature of politics. The latest appeal to Christians is to try to undo the widespread damage done by the Tories to their voting base over same-sex marriage, which lost them a lot of voters!

The almost identical way in which the above politicians all link Nationalism to the Church is astounding. The comparisons are authentic and they are extremely alarming. More disturbing still is the credulous way in which the controlled masses persistently fall for the subterfuge, without as much as a question.
The politicians’ well-worn words, us, we and ours are bandied about in an attempt to create a misleading visage of a body of opinion supportive of the one selected principle. This in fact is an exceptionally basic yet most ‘successful’ method of mind control that relies on sightless conformity (herd instinct) to ensure compliance toward a given creed, etc. 

The swing to the right in the European elections and the prominence of Christian democracy parties is ongoing. The SAFF in fact predicted this accurately when commenting on the ‘Breivik’ situation.

Christian fanatics such as this exist at the opposite end of the scale to militant Islamic ones. Essentially they are two sides of the same coin and hate begets more hate!
Before you know it the mass of supporters are indoctrinated into fighting an ‘us against them’ war of attrition that is based ‘not’ on noble patriotism but on blind conformity to a fantasy belief system (Holy War) such as the one dished out by the sanctimonious Church.  


Many vigilantes- type groups like to grab the Christian banner and stand behind it as some sort of indisputable ‘proof’ that they are the ‘Good guys’.  I am not just alluding to King Richard’s chums at the Crusades, the Nazis in WW2 or the somewhat intolerant KKK lads in white hoods. 
Over the centuries well-meaning but ridiculously naive populations in the West have permitted the powers of fundamentalism to hoodwink them into believing that Christianity was ‘their’ religious foundation stone. As with the early Nazis, today’s jingoistic zealots also seek to tell us that this alien faith from the East is somehow OUR religion. What utter poppycock. 
Britain for instance had a thriving spiritual ethos in Celtic dwellings long before the first intolerant, ‘one-god’ missionaries set foot on our green isles. In fact we had a successful and balanced earth-based spirituality long before the Roman legions arrived. 
Thus, the smug ones who now try to delude us into believing that the western lands are ‘Christian only’in heritage must be challenged at source! 
Such misleading religious propaganda simply will not do! It is an ethos based on blind ignorant conformity to religious dogma and has no basis in historical legitimacy! Moreover, self-satisfied assertions that the UK is a Christian land have been challenged by many scholars as bogus spin.
Calling Britain a "Christian country" sows seeds of dangerous division, a coalition of 50 leading scientists, writers and academics has said, criticising David Cameron for his spoken desire to infuse Christian values into society.

‘Gott mit uns’ (meaning God with us) was a common belt buckle feature of the ‘Christian’ soldiers of the Third Reich. 
History undoubtedly repeats itself because consecutive generations fail to learn from the mistakes of the past. Today therefore we have a situation in which religious fanatics in vigilante apparel and smug vote-seeking politicians are seeking to equate national pride with the Church. The collective dangers associated with such a defective form of political elitism remain as strong as ever! 
So yes, be proud of your country if you must but DO NOT let religious or political activists, with hidden agendas, delude you!

If you do then l sooner or later we all end up with an extreme situation, like Nazi Germany did in the 1930s-40s. 

NB. Regardless of the 'real' reason behind this impromptu stand down, Mr Duckett may have had second thoughts regarding his newly proposed political role. After all, would any sensible person ever contemplate working side by side with blundering political representatives (especially a local Tory party leader) who treat residents with such contempt and utter disrespect, as highlighted on this revealing following link?

The leading Southport news site, OTS NEWS, also highlighted Duckett's sudden stand down. In this link he was described as... 

'Hampshire Yacht salesman and London photographer Brian Duckett, self-appointed Tory-UKIP-Tory candidate for Southport'

The political and media spin we are carefully spoon-fed and the 'real' facts frequently remain poles apart.. 


Thanks also to SAFF for kindly running up my article on their hard-hitting site...
