  1. Good morning Peter. this is disgraceful. I just found this FB coversation around the same date

    Two quotes below that are below the belt

    “Chris Bovey I am 100% sure there is nobody on the NORML UK Board or Exec who would work with Reynolds and I for one would resign my membership immediately if they did.

    “Billy Gartside Reynolds is about as relevant as tits on a donkey.Between the fraud and the domestic violence supporting his candidature is out of the question.We need to get women,ethnic minorities and the LGBT community on our side and that isn’t possible with a misogynistic homophobic wifebeating racist.He’a also upset the people of Bovingdon but that’s somewhat less important.

  2. U R gonna love me for this one Peter. Bovey has the audacity to claim you are an anti-semite. However, I just found this for you quote below

    “‘Dr Hemp’: Anti-Semite

    One of the moderators on the David Icke forum is an individual who calls himself Dr Hemp. His real name is Chris Bovey.

    You may have spotted Dr Hemp’s advertisements for a range of legal highs in alternative publications, most notably Fortean Times. He also trades as Pot Seeds.

    As well as a commitment to 9/11 truth and getting stoned, one of the good Doctors core beliefs is racism, demonstrated in the particular form of anti-semitism. One wonders how many of those he does business with, including the publications he advertises in, are aware of this. Take for example Dr Hemp’s comments on this thread about the notorious anti-semitic forgery The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
    On 25 March at 12:35, to Dr Hemp we should not be concerned about whether the Protocols are fake, but are they accurate? He quickly answers his own question, stating that whoever wrote them had a good insight into the future. Yes folks, in this analysis the Jews run the world, and everything is their fault. I think we all know where this type of politics ends up…………

    It was perhaps no surprise that Dr Hemp’s good friend David Shayler began jew-baiting not long after arriving in the world of 9/11 ‘truth’. Shayler has carried on going down hill since then, but for the sake of others in Dr Hemp’s orbit, be it in Devon or elsewhere, we need to be clear just how despicable his brand of politics is. When I made the point on the Icke forum that Dr Hemp and Shayler appear to be a pair of anti-semites, Dr Hemp responded in the way that truth activists so often do when challenged (cf Tony Gosling on his 9/11 ‘truth’ forum) – he deleted my post! And these people complain about censorship from the Neocons and New Labour. Physician heal thyself!

    I urge all those with principles to boycott Pot Seeds and Dr Hemp’s various business interests. “

  3. Interesting website currently advertising magic mushrooms for sale, and silly me thinking they were made illegal years ago

    and look who it is registered to

    • Also ‘bath salts and ‘research chemicals’. All those nasty substances linked to seizures, kidney failure and severe psychotic attacks. Bovey has been selling them to kids all over the UK for many years.

  6. What has happened to you peter, and the other members of clear, is sick. For me the faith you placed in the legal system was misguided, I could have predicted no good would have come from legal challenges. I have enough experience of the law to know it would come to nothing and cost you more than them. Judge me as you like but if what they did to you had happened to me or anyone close to me the law would not have been involved and it would have been dealt with swiftly and quietly.
    I feel incredibly sorry for what happened to david shayler and annie machon but he had a complete mental breakdown. there is a book by john ronson, the name of which escapes me, that explains the descent of his mental health. If anyone is close to him I would wonder about their mental health as well. Unfortunately these characters are the poster boys for the anti cannabis brigade, even I wonder if cannabis has had an affect on their behaviour.

    “Are mental health problems sometimes linked to drug use? David Shayler and Chris Bovey disagree! ”

    and here Baby Face Bovey has a go at David Shayler.

    “Dave Shayler is as mad as a bag of badgers.

  8. Hi Peter I am not sure if you will notice this comment, its the best part of half a decade after the other.

    Ive been looking into your affairs, that of clear, the trade association, bovey, greg etc. I am new to the activism scene, and I am thinking of setting up a CBD business. So all this research is because of that, I want to know who’s who and what they do. This is because in the coming weeks I am likely to have some interaction with the cannabis clubs movement and Greg. In addition I will be posting my activism/business related activities on my blog(under my real name), in the coming weeks. This will no doubt mean mentioning my interactions with some major players in the industry/activism scene.

    I thought this conflict was nothing but petty at first, but it seems to be a whole lot more than that. That has got me a little worried because whoever I end up working with, and mentioning in my blog, it will no doubt draw attention from the enemies of whoever. I really do not want a smear campaign or a court case, but if somehow in the years to come I am prominent on the cannabis scene, it seems like it would be inevitable.

    I am shocked, that as a newcomer there is so much devision within the cannabis community. I have therefore decided that in the short term, I will minimise my involvement with greg, and avoid all formal dealings with him. This goes for yourself and clear UK as well. As for my new business, better safe than sorry, it won’t be joining the trade association.

    I don’t know what happened before 2012 that has made the scene so bitter, so I am not taking sides. But despite the internet being flooded with negative posts about you, and having an entire website of hate dedicated to you, I can say that its way over the top. I write about why I think why in my blog, which I will send you a link to, if I decide to reveal my real name.

    Reading about this little decade long war and the people behind it means I probably cannot stay neutral forever and my activities, once they begin, is probably going to upset somebody. Maybe this could be, but hopefully not, yourself. So even if I keep my nose clean, I can’t help but think something bad is going to happen.

    Please know I would not be messaging you, if I could not see at least part of your point of view so I wish to offer you some advice. If you go ahead with it, then it will be one hell of a court case. A court case that will legally reveal the owners of this little website of hate, and be sure that whoever is the bullshitter is in all of this, would have to put there money where there mouth is. I know that all the shit about you cannot be true because there is so much of it, its reduced the credibility of those who posted it, to an outsider like myself.

    Here is what I suggest you do. Go after the watch Peter Reynolds website under the right to be forgotten, under EU law. Soon to be UK law!

    I know you have been finding a way for years to legally pursue the Watch Peter Reynolds gang, and may have thought of nearly everything you can do, but this is worth reading for a reason. I have not been around for those years! Ive known about you, Peter Bovey, Greg, the trade association, clear uk, the uk cannabis social clubs, for only a few days. So I may be able to offer a fresh perspective to all of this.

    Under EU law, as we all know, there are some new data laws regarding the right to be forgotten. I personally, despite being a remainer, disagree with this law but its something you can use. I know your a Brexiter but please here me out, it will involve using European courts.

    The website of hate dedicated to you is hosted in Iceland part of the EEA. So under the right to be forgotten you can do 2 things.

    1. Order google to remove the links to that website in the search results(a minor effect at best).

    2. Take the owners of the website to court because they refuse to remove all out of date and unsourced material about you!

    Now my second point is the real killer. Because the Data protection laws apply to everybody not just Google. So in theory you can take the owner of another website to court for refusing to remove out of date, and unsourced information about you!

    Whether you are successful or not is irrelevant, the point is the perps behind this watch peter reynolds website will have to turn up to court to defend there claims or be in breach of the law if there website is not taken down!

    You know what this means right?! The website owners will have to reveal themselves to defend themselves in court. You will have the court case minutes even if you loose! Then with, there identities revealed, you can then take action in the UK courts because the only thing holding you back is officially not knowing, who owns that Icelandic website.

    EU law in this case trumps Icelandic law so you can get a court order from the european courts, to not only reveal the identities of the perps but summon them to court to either defend there claims and/or order them to remove all unsourced and out of date material about you.

    Even if they argue that its in date and relevant and sourced, they will still need to be in court to actually make that argument.

    If they refuse to attend court/find another way to keep there identities hidden, you can still order the Icelandic website hosting company, to tear that website down under the right to be forgotten! Worst comes to the worst use the same law to go after the Icelandic govt directly for refusing to comply with EU law.

    There is also the chance you won’t have to use the European courts. UK courts have to answer to EU law so just use your local court. I know we are leaving the EU but all existing EU law is to be converted into UK law, including the right to be forgotten.

    All of this is just a thought but I want to see the result. The result will give me a better idea on who to trust if I am prominent on the cannabis scene, anytime soon.

    Good luck!

    • I know that Bovey is the owner of the website.

      I already have a High Court injunction against Greg de Hoedt which will send him to jail for up to two years if he repeats his lies about me. Here it is. It can also apply to anyone else who repeats his lies:

      The litigation involved cost me over £35,000 and still abusers like the Mail on Sunday repeat the lies about me with impunity.

      The bottom line is that people like Bovey and de Hoedt are low life scum. Greg is actually well-intentioned but he’s seriously deluded, whereas Bovey is a malevolent and evil sub-human who has done the same thing as he did to me to a number of other people.

      They don’t get any more of my attention. Anyone with half a brain can see that the website is a pack of ridiculous lies. I wear these things as battle honours. They are the price I have paid for fighting my cause, so I am proud of them.

      • Yeh the website was OTT and reduces there credibility. Then again I may have believed if not some of it, if i wasn’t in a smear campaign situation myself half a decade back. Well Ive been in that situation twice and both times the other side reduced there credibility by having so many lies that the lies themselves contradict each other.

        Plus some of its political. ie having a go at you for having a go at Corbyn and your so called right wing blog. I am just surprised that cannot remain A political. Or that they are putting more effort into you than there own respective cannabis causes.

        I am due to exchange words with Greg de Hoedt soon, even if we don’t meet. we shall see.

        Anything I should expect? If he was just Boveys patsie then I cannot expect much can I?

        I met Bovey once. I was once his customer for seeds and cactus(before the latter became illegal). 2 years ago I was in Totnes and visited the business. He didn’t say much it was his wife(if that was his wife) doing most of the talking. They seemed ok, but theres a lot one should not take at face value.

        I had no idea who he was back then though, hell I even offered to help them with my experience in the finance industry as all the major banks had refused to deal with them and they could not get a bank ac or the ability to accept card payments and that was crippling there business.

        I may remain a nobody on the cannabis scene. But if that changes for myself or my business, I can see what to expect if I am unpopular for any reason.
