Alfred, Terry, EBK and Listers

Here is a take on the post I recieved from a UK ufologist.

-----

..... "an article from today's Observer about the demise
of UFO Magazine.

Note the sneering, sententious tone. And note who is called upon
to speak on behalf of 'ufology'. Not the Chairman of BUFORA, nor
any member of BUFORA.

Not even Nick Pope or Tim Good.

Not a bit of it.

Instead, we are offered the jaundiced opinions of proven liar,
self-confessed hoaxer, professional-wrecker and muckraker, Mr
Andy Roberts.

And see how he never wastes an opportunity to spread his
denialist message.

In matters relating to PSI, one is driven to question The
Observer's commitment to serious news-reporting.


With best wishes,"
