When Mark Tilbrook politely and peacefully distributed leaflets at venues where "psychic" Sally Morgan was performing, her son and husband threatened to beat him up (and even to have him murdered), uttered homophobic and racist slurs, and, eventually, served him with a legal threat.
Mr Tilbrook writes,
As I explained in the Guardian on
7 October, 2014, I decided earlier this year to leaflet outside various
psychic stage shows, encouraging members of the audience to ask
themselves questions about psychic ability. My first three visits were
to shows by Sally Morgan, and on each occasion her husband John Morgan
approached me. I found him to be threatening and abusive.
After being threatened during my first encounter with John Morgan, I
felt it necessary to have a camera with me when leafleting, to record
events and provide evidence of the threats I faced. This footage shows
what happened on the third occasion, at the Shaw Theatre in London on
April 30, 2014. I’ve subtitled the video as accurately as I can make out,
and you can make up your mind about his behaviour after seeing it for
None of this has stopped me from being determined to continue leafleting
at psychic stage shows. This is why I have been working with the Good
Thinking Society to hand out more leaflets at psychic shows throughout
October 2014. You can find out about 'Psychic Awareness Month' at
the Good Thinking website.
