Dispatches from our far-flung correspondents agree: Scientology still sucks - 2018-10-01
We were super fortunate to have reports come in this weekend from two of our great correspondents. In England, Graham updated us on the Birmingham org, and in California, Erin Hodges Plumb had another of her upstart adventures. We hope you enjoy them both…
It was nearly a year ago, on October 22, 2017, that Scientology leader Chairman of the Board David Miscavige opened the Birmingham Ideal Org in the English Midlands; an event I managed to blag my way into, and reported on for the Bunker.
Passing though again last Saturday I thought I'd stop off and see how things were going. Well, 12 cars in the car park on a Saturday afternoon might seem quite healthy for an organisation that only had 88 members in the region according to the 2011 Census. But compared to the size of the car park and the size of the massive T-shaped former insurance HQ building, 12 is possibly not that great. And for an organisation promising prosperity, one Audi plus one Tesla alongside ten down-market vehicles is not so impressive either.
