Vampire Hunter Drama Part 3 is part two, and there's a link in there to part one.

Anyway, the arch rival of Sean Manchester, the guy who has been annoying me since I was a teenager and the subject of the last two posts on the subject has emailed me as of last night. This guy has a criminal record a mile long, from digging up corpses and violating them on down.

But at least he's more eloquent in his madness than Machester. here's David Farrant's email to me.

Dear Alex Lucard
I was most intrigued by all your comments here about the so-called Highgate Vampire; not least about myself being a 'vampire hunter'! It would appear that you arrive at most of your conclusions about the Highgate Case and myself from sensational accounts you have gleaned from the internet the problem is however that almost invariably, most of this inaccurate sensationalism as been posted up by Mr Sean Manchester himself (Please note he is NOT a genuing bishop) and if you check back on these accounts you will see that I have only been forced to correct unfounded public allegations made by Mr Manchester himself - albeit frequently hiding behind his usual aliases.

It is not my intention to argue against all the points you have recently made on the insidepulse website, as I appreciate you, like anybody else are entitled to personal opinions (however wrong or misguided these have proved to be in your particular case).

I will just say one thing however, to set the record straight for you - ... I am NOT a 'vampire hunter', in reality I am just a psychic investigator and I do not even accept the existence of 'blood sucking vampires'. Mr Manchester apparently does (as he has publically stated in his self-published book The Highgate Vampire), but that is really his problem! In passing, I can conclude by saying that my non-acceptance of Mr Manchester's ridiculous public claims he makes about 'vampires', has been the main reason for his campaign of hatred against members of The British Psychic and Occult Society and myself.

Yours Sincerely
David Farrant
President BPOS.

NB: In the event that you might be interested my main website can be found at also could I refer you to Occult Forums International Vampire Thread, Off Topic Occult. The link is from which Mr Manchester has just been publically banned (within the last 3 or 4 days or so.

SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP! Sigh. My email to him

Ummm...Dave? That column you read of mine was me printing the whack job hilarious emails Manchester sent me. Re-read the column. Those are his words, not mine with me making fun of him at the end.

It was in reference to the column I wrote back in Jan '05 ( where I recanted the entire Highgate vampire saga.

I know Manchester very well. And by that I mean, I know him by reputation very well, as he's been the butt of American folklorists and parapsychologists for as long as I can remember. Norrine Dresser, Paul barber, Carol Page. All of us snicker quite profusely at the whole "Highgate Vampire" incident.

I'll tell you what I told Manchester: Stop acting like children. Both of you. This happened 30 years ago. My god, both of you are old enough to be at retirement age soon and you're carrying on like schoolchildren about an event maybe 5% of the world remembers and only a fraction thereof even cares that it occured.

All your sniping between the two of you does makes you both look foolish and foppish. Like attention whores deserpately clinging to some sort of public limelight when one of you just needs to start completely ignoring the other. I don't care if he starts it, or is just really good at getting your goat, because the end result is STILL the two of you bickering of the world wide web. Please stop.

Farrant's Weird Wicca Workers Party and Nazi Connections
2006-06-01 05:59 pm UTC (from (link) DeleteFreezeScreen
David Farrant prepared to stand as a candidate in the forthcoming British General Election soon after the Sunday People "spoiler." He launched what was described as the “Wicca Workers Party” to the cry of “Wiccans Awake!”

Journalist Peter Hounam wrote a front page story for the Hornsey Journal, 30 June 1978, that thundered;

“A new peril for candidates fighting the marginal Hornsey constituency emerged this week with news that some of their supporters who indulge in witchcraft may switch their votes to the ‘Wicca Workers Party’ in the General Election. … Mr Farrant, who lives in Muswell Hill Road, is fighting under the slogan ‘Wiccans Awake’.”

Farrant became more confident and published a letter in the Hornsey Journal, 21 July 1978, which stated;

“It is not my intention to use your letter columns to promulgate the views of the Wicca Workers Party or to become involved in futile argument with any of your readers, but having seen the opinions expressed in the letter columns of the Journal, I feel that I should set the record straight. In fact, the WWP is a serious political party and has growing support from people all over the country; including other political groups with whom we are now amalgamated.”

Having only ever met Bishop Manchester on one occasion, briefly on 5 October 1977, Frank Thorne was to provide further misrepresentation for a scandalous French magazine called Entervue in 1994. From the safety of another country, he described the bishop, who he had not spoken to for seventeen years, as “mentally very disturbed.” Thorne, on the other hand, had himself described as “a famous journalist.”

Nowadays Thorne is unemployed and resides in Sydney, Australia.

Interviewed by Entervue, a notorious French publication that even major celebrities did not stoop to sue for defamation, Thorne falsely claimed that the bishop was “an adept of a satanic cult [who] even gave courses in magic … a Nazi … a sorcerer … and director of a funeral company.” This absurd and libellous nonsense is, of course, without any foundation. Entervue did not seek any balancing comment from Bishop Manchester who remained oblivious to their article’s existence until the close of the century when it was reproduced in a self-published pamphlet by Farrant, by which time Entervue had folded.

John Pope continued with his Neo-Nazi involvements and more recently published a piece in the journal of the south-western branch of the National Front.

David Farrant has a history of association with people who hold Neo-Nazi views. He connects, for example, to names such as Philippe Welte and Jean-Paul Bourre, two Frenchman who greatly admired Adolf Hitler when Farrant was in collaboration with them in the 1980s. There are others. Farrant's friend and associate for many years, Kenneth Frewen, was a National Front supporter.
