I am so sorry readers, there has just been electronic interference with my post ‘The Joys Of Propaganda’, as I was finishing it off. I can’t amend it in any way, it is frozen/jammed. Most of what I wanted is now there though; obviously I was hoping to fill in more background info re the names of banks, businesses and politicians that I introduced in that post, but the rest was just going to be tidying up and referring readers to info which is in previous posts…

Can I ask interested readers to follow up anything themselves if they’ve seen a name that they have wondered about because I just don’t have the capacity to do everything that I’d like…

I know what I want to follow up in future posts and although I’ve had huge problems with ‘The Joys Of Propaganda’ what with huge chunks of text disappearing into thin air and now everything frozen, I’ve got a feel of the landscape for future research and there’ll be a follow up post going up soon with the info that disappeared from ‘The Joys Of Propaganda’ yesterday.

I presume that the comments column after ‘The Joys Of Propaganda’ is frozen now as well, so if anyone leave a comment I may not be able to post it up.

This man is long dead – he was a retired psychiatrist from the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, T. Gwynne Williams, who was working shifts in the student health centre at University College of North Wales (now Bangor University). We discovered years later that this ‘successful man’ was notorious – he had been an enthusiastic lobotomist…
