But you are a trained, legitimate complimentary therapist acting within professional parameters and regulation, same as say a cognitive behavioural therapist. There are people who are not trained, are not professional but claim to offer products, diet plans or services which can cure illnesses.

Same with handbags; where there is a market for a genuine product or service, opportunists will try to find a way to take a little cut of that market.

A handbag :lol: The Nhs has fake docotrs according to the news this week and a Consultant Psychiatrist for 20 years !!! Mediums are different, a lot of us are constantly doing courses to enhance our abilities.. Some of them I have attended are run by the SNU Spiritualist National Union, other course are by other bodies like the ISM Of which I am a member that is the Institute of Spiritualist Mediums.. Then the is the TSU The spiritualits Union.. All are well known and respected bodies..

There will always be people out to fake stuff there will always be robbers, con men abd scammers etc in all walks of life.. Yet non of these aresubject to that 'Cowboy Act that smacks of the Witch Finder General days..
Some of our Chiefs believe the land belongs to them...
But that is not what The Great Spirit told me... He said No one owns the land, that the land belongs to him. We are just keepers of the land, for our children and for their childrens childen.

Yep, they basically technically ditched the fake medium Act in favour of using the same law as they use for fake handbags. The Fraudulent Mediums Act was rarely used, but the literal interpretation basically admits 'real' mediumship and only sought to catch those planning to deceive (regardless of profiting from deception).

But I still don't think a TV show fits the brief to get caught under those current regulations that repealed the old Act. Just as well, imagine people being irate when the weather forecast was wrong and they all tried to sue Michael Fish because he didn't predict rain and they relied on his prediction so they wore their best suede shoes.....they were misled and unduly influenced by his statement and his Hawaiian shirt and shorts combo....

The UK weather....predicted for entertainment purposes.

While religion is the cause of most wars, with a few notable exceptions, Like WW1, WW2, the Korean War, the Vietnam war, the Falklands war, the Gulf war and going back a bit the Boer war, the Napoleonic wars, the 100 years war, the American war of independence, the American civil war, the War of the roses, the war of the Spanish succession, the Seven years war and all those other wars which were mainly between us The British :) and them the French :( or the Germans :eek: (the European Union as we call them now-a-days.)
Apart from those, I am sure you are right. :)
Aside from the fact that apart from the News, Religious and Political programming and documentaries, all T.V. is for Entertainment purposes only, why should ghost hunting programmes be singled out? you do not put 'For entertainment purposes only' at the end of Eastenders or The X-Factor (although the word entertainment and X-Factor may not be mutually inclusive... Torture porn maybe.)

Oh Bluey, you are funny :) WWII was about nationalism, the Iraq war was about tribalism, the Boer war was about the Great British Empire vs. nasty Dutch fascists, the 100 years war was about the magnificent British vs. the brutish French and the 6 days war was about land rights.
But (present company excluded,) I do love to sit back and roll around laughing at the idiotic humans who try to blame their willy waggling on religion, politics and the weather, rather than their innate ability to hate everything different :rofl:

Well I had a little look at the Ofcom complaints and the Ofcom rules and I think that Most Haunted chose to use that disclaimer because it benefits them financially.

I didn't know that with that disclaimer your show can be on before the watershed, but without it it can't and has to have a balance in critical
analysis. So, despite Ofcom deciding in 2005 that it clearly was 'for entertainment purposes' they could have made efforts to make it more effective as an investigation, but why would you do that if it would mean that your show could only be on after 9pm.

They would be missing out on payments for all those day time re-runs. So it suits them.

So you do not see WW!! as anything to do with religoon, ever heard of the Holocast... Many things are do in the name of religopn and every damn one seems to think that theirs is the one true God, when in fact there aint one at all :lol:

Iraqa Tribalism as you call it was a difference of 2 factions of muslims The Shiites and The Sunnis...
Thisis also the samething about ISIS who wanna kill everyone who isn't one of them.

You left out the Crusades when having a pop at my reasonings Oh Wait was,t it called The Holy War... No trligom involve there either... :lol: It seems the world will use any excuse to kill.. And The Papalcy will allow their priests skilled in Paedophilia to hide behind the skirts of the Papa; robes.. Yet if ya skip confession the Nuns say 'You'll all go to hell' Whereyou can no doubt me Fred Batts mates :D
