Vampire Hunter Drama Part 3
http://www.livejournal.com/users/alexlucard/840004.html#cutid1 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 http://www.dfarrant.co.uk also could I refer you to Occult Forums International Vampire Thread, Off Topic Occult. The link is http://www.occultforums.com 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 (http://www.insidepulse.com/article.php?contentid=31102) 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.

-Lucard

Actually I don't agree. Why do you find it necessary to make fun of people? Especially when their personal details are being paraded about on 'your blog'. Just because you are a so-called professional and enjoy having your personal details paraded about the internet does not mean that the rest of us enjoy it. If you were in the UK this blog would have been deleted immediately.

Actually David Farrant and co are not Nutters. They are quite sane people. How can you say such things about people who you do not know. The reason why I wish to stay anonymous is because I can't be bothered joining up yet another inane blog.

You are not acting your age. You are behaving just as childish as the other 'anonymous' on this blog.

Ha, call yourself a researcher, I don't think so.

Actually, considering I lived in Surrey for quite some time, it wouldn't be. I know British law better than most.

Anyone who runs around hunting monsters, demons, ghosts, and vampires are not sane. Especially at the level in which the people in question have been caught doing it. Are they serial killing lunatics? No. But they are definitely fucked up people with some major issues they need to work out.

If you do something gobsmackingly stupid, you get called on it. Generally for a long time, and when it gets to the level of national of international blundering, you never live it down.

It would be helpful to know what a"PROFESSIONAL" vampire hunter does. Professional means you do it for your living, so how can you be a professional vampire hunter? Where do you get trained, who pays your wages and on what basis and proof IS REQUIRED of vampires slain. The vampire hunter in question has never written up any other cases other than Highgate and Kirklees and both of these were flops if not outright hoaxes. So I ask, how can you be a professional in thiS field. Also, what is the need for a "handbook" on the subject--surely this is dangerous humbug which could have, in the wrong hands, serious consequences-such as interfering with the bereaved's resting places, distressing relatives and possibly staking a body which was not a vampire!

I completely agree. It's an insane claim to make. Anyone with a spade and a stake can claim to hunt corpses.

It is reasonable to attribute amateur status to someone who proclaims they have "no knowledge in this field," who clearly ignores all known procedures, who invites the press along to accompany ill-advised nocturnal forays where a home-made stake and cross appear clasped in either hand for photographs that find their way into the next day's newspapers, and who conveniently declares soon afterwards that he "does not believe in vampires."

A professional would be someone who has studied, researched and investigated at a recognisably serious level, published his findings and had them accredited by sholcars and academics, lectured to informed audiences and contributed to serious documentary films.

You are deliberately missing the point again.

Regardless of how amateurish David was in his exploits, the fact remains that Manchester was also an amateur.

You can score only so many points by bitching with your opponent, to gain proper credibility you also have to have something worthwhile to say for yourself. Stop slagging off David and show us the Vampires!

I suppose that is why universities, research institutes, scholastic bodies, publishing houses, acclaimed authors, documentary production companies, television and radio companies, colleges and church organisations etc, regularly consult and commission Bishop Sean Manchester for his knowledge and expertise, and have done so for probably longer than you have drawn breath!

So what does Georgie Pin do apart from spread his sour grapes across boards and blogs ranging from Fortean Times online to Alex Lucard's out-of-date and long since abandoned threads?

For heaven's sake man, get a life!

A amateur is someone who doesn't get paid for their services whilst a Professional does! So Mr. Manchester are you now saying that you get paid for 'Vampire Hunting'!!!!! And if so then I'm sure the tax man would love to find out, especially seeing as you are claiming to be a 'bishop'.
