I have been watching with interest, the online insanity surrounding the one-time East17 vocalist Brian Harvey, but have, until now, not allowed myself to be dragged into any of it.

This will be my only contribution, and it comes by way of offering some timely advice.

My advice to Brian Harvey, would be to ignore all of the self-titledĀ ‘Targeted Individuals’, and those who have attached themselves to him in order to boost their own Youtube Channels & social media presence – and also to ignore the detractors and those who he describes as ‘trolls’ – and to concentrate on the bigger picture.

I would then ask him to take some time out (37:02 minutes in real time), and watch the following videos, which will I believe, furnish him with everything he would need to answer most of the questions he has been asking, especially in regard to how he ended up in his current situation.

They explain, in simple terms, not only why, but how it was done, and most importantly, by whom.

Putting all personal feelings aside, as I don’t really care whether Brian Harvey likes me, or trusts my judgement, as it’s unimportant in the greater scheme of things.

What is important, however, is that the truth is not allowed to be bypassed by the endless back and forth between various parties and online groups, and to cut through the white noise that has effectively drowned out any attempt at reasoned discussion, and forge a positive way forward.

These videos were put together by someone who’s work I am aware of via his blog and his Youtube channel, but that is as far as any association between us goes.

It is my belief that Brian Harvey was not only set up, (as the videos clearly show), but he was also both professionally and socially crucified by people within the British political establishment, working towards a pre-determined agenda, assisted by his manager and willingly abetted by the mainstream media.

It’s now up to the reader/viewer to decide for themselves where the truth lies.

In all conscience, I would not be able to settle if I sat back and said nothing about what may well be, one of the most misleading and wholly disingenuous mainstream media articles that I have read for many a year.

I am of course, referring to something that was published earlier today, in the online version of the Daily Mirror, in regard to a recent YouTube video that was published by ex-East17 band member Brian Harvey.

Now anybody reading that headline, would almost certainly assume that Mr Harvey has totally lost the plot, and by drawing the readers attention to Mr Harvey’s claims that, he ‘has not been outside for five years’, and ‘has clones‘, leaves very little doubt as to the Mirror’s real intent.

To both totally discredit him and negate anything what Mr Harvey says (or presents evidence of wrongdoing) from now on perhaps?

If one was to read the article at face value, and accept what it says, it will of course have served it’s purpose, but if one was to look at what is not being said in the article, then things may appear a little clearer.

Now, I owe Mr Harvey nothing, as I believe that he has not done himself any favour’s lately, inasmuch as he has been taking advice from people on Social Media who are directly linked to the ‘Shadowy People’ he genuinely believes are trying to kill him, and he has made a grave error in stating that he has ‘not been outside for five years’ – when only recently he was protesting outside Downing Street, accompanied by a cameraman.However, the Mirrors’ claim that Mr Harvey has said that he ‘has clones’ is almost certainly a conscious attempt to make Mr Harvey appear delusional, as if they had done even the most basic research, they would have known that Mr Harvey, in a number of YouTube uploads and on his Twitter account – makes it perfectly clear that the ‘Clones’ he refers to, are in fact, ‘cloned images’ of the data stored on a hard disk drive, in the computer that was seized by the Metropolitan Police during his earlier arrest.

‘Disk cloning is the process of copying the contents of one computer hard disk to another disk or to an “image” file. This may be done straight from one disk to another, but more often, the contents of the first disk are written to an image file as an intermediate step, then the second disk is loaded with the contents of the image. Typically, this is done for archiving purposes, to restore lost or damaged data, or to move wanted data into a new disk, though other reasons also exist.

Unlike standard copying functions, disk cloning involves copying hidden and in-use files, and thus presents special challenges, as those types of files are typically not available for copying. Additional complications arise when the process is used for networked computers, as the network must be able to distinguish between different computers. Post-cloning operations may be necessary to address these and other issues’. – WIKIPEDIA

As for the rest of the article? …. It’s simply attempting to bring to the readers attention, a number of old negative news articles about Mr Harvey, that are already in the public domain, to flesh out what is in fact, a really lazy, and sloppy attempt to once again smear the man, possibly in response to the fact that Mr Harvey’s video has now gone viral …. is attracting a lot of attention, and the evidence he has to hand regarding phone hacking, by journalists (amongst others), may be starting to make somebody, very, very nervous indeed.
