Those enjoying a relaxing Sunday afternoon in Brick Lane today had their slumber interrupted by a sales pairing from London's 'truth' movement.
The purpose of this leaflet was to promote the July 7th (nudge, nudge) Exploring Evidence summit to be held at Logan Hall, WC1H. In fact the term summit appears a little over the top for what simply appears to be two speakers hawking their wares, with the usual Q & A session. That's nothing however compared to the over the top pricing for the event.
Long gone it seems are the days of Belinda McKenzie's capacious handbag sponsoring everything from the living expenses of MI5 officers cum truth activists to visiting speakers from the Icelandic 'truth' movement. In these days of harsh economic realities, to hear Prof Niels Harrit and Dr Kevin Barrett speak will cost you a whopping £15 according to the promotional leaflet I received today, whilst the Exploring Evidence website has the tickets priced at a wallet busting £20.
The truth may be out there, but it sure ain't cheap.....
