Nick Pope used to work for the Ministry of Defence MOD as a UFO denier spokesman and now makes a living on the UFO lecture circuit as a UFO agnostic. Regrettably he is wheeled out every time the British media want an opinion. In effect he is still on an MOD pension.
Colin Andrews has already called Nick Pope out as a liar on the crop circle and UFO connection to the Royal Family and Ministry of Defence as I've blogged twice and Dr David Clarke has written an expose of the MOD/Nick Pope duality online as well as in interviews.
For the media to invite Nick Fucking Pope for his opinion is like a new game show proposal for the Captain of the Concordia to tell us how to run a luxury cruise liner.
