Bryan Seymour’s Channel 7 News Story, with footage of David Miscavige rehearsing
Tony already has this on his site, but I wanted to include some other observations.
Bryan told me they also blocked another national TV show (I assume it was Steve Cannane) and a national newspaper and rolled out some new “balloon tech” with people holding bunches of balloons in front of the media. These people have completely lost grip with reality, these are horrendous footnukes. Imagine spending $15 million to open a building to “flood people up the bridge” (that necessarily must include NEW people) and this is the sort of publicity you get? And it’s not just the Blutos blocking the sidewalk. Would anyone honestly want to be like the sullen, surly Scientologists on the street that he attempts to interview? Not a single happy and excited person. Everyone fearful. Sneering. Yuk.
And it seems they have staffed Sydney primarily with people from Taiwan. That is going to be inviting to less than 1% of the population of Sydney. Not even to “real” Chinese from the People’s Republic. Australia is now far more integrated than it used to be when I was growing up there, but the vast majority of the Asian population come from virtually every other country in Asia and NOT Taiwan. Taiwan is a prosperous western style country.
I don’t think Bryan Seymour and the other Australian media are likely to let this rest here….
