    Another Ideal Morgue?



    Another project for Sci to fail horribly at.

    I wonder if that Levett bloke realised he took that Flubtard quote out of context... Or if he cares.

    Celebrity Centers are set up to draw in celebrities with influence, connections and MONEY, MONEY, MONEY in to the Scientology cult.

    While the staff slave to expand the org DM and Co. bleed the Celebrity Center for all it is worth in money, loyalty, favors and Public Relations.

    Due to the failure of LRH to be who he said he was, the Celebrity Centers will never be what they say they are.

    These "Benefactors" are mostly benefiting DM and the real estate binge he is on.

    These centers are incapable of creating a new culture. More fake promises, just like the superpowers of "OT". Ignore them. Alert the celebs who get sucked in to see what is really going on.

    New Cavendish Street is now fully open for business. They are now properly furnished; with loads of massive scilon posters, creepy LRH photos, book and magazine displays, several venetian blinds, modesty screens, etc.

    Their advantage here is very clearly location.

    It appears that people don't have to go through the main reception to get to the CelebrityCentre. There's a glass door that opens out into the street.

    At a previous protest, they were apparently filming from the first floor, so maybe they have room to expand up there.

    "Investing in an Ideal CC London could mean
    the difference between Scientology making
    it and not."

    "smash the suppression"


    Um, wat

    If Scientology "making it" is dependent on a CC London MEST building, I would say that Scientology is well and truly fucked.

    You could...but nobody would recognize you. Because nobody recognizes Z-list celebrities, doncha know.

    Could their main ploy be to attract celebrities from the local hospital (which happens to be Great Portand Street) or from radio 1 just a thought.
  10. CarltonBANKS Member

    Lots of BBC stations are nearby

    It's a private hospital , where footballers wags go to have their baby.

    Two main reasons for the move:
    - so sociopath David Miscavige can fraudulently claim they are expanding
    - 5 mins away from TCR, so when they need to look busy, they can sent people over at short ntice

    Peter Bolgar is at New Cavendish Street everyday, his desk looks out onto the street. Never seems to have any non-staff in. Like, ever.

    "Complete the down payment", eh?

    As in, a mortgage?

    As in, unable to afford the building outright?

    Says it all really. I suppose they've "got the idea" that they can afford it, though...

    Stunning building! Where is it?

    If there's one thing $cientology needs right now, it's more empty buildings.

    QVS is so beautiful, inside. It's amazing what several million £s can do to spruce up a place.

    Can someone please tell me which "celebs" the clams actually think they're going to ensnare in the UK! All the high profile A-list fuck off across the pond and wouldn't touch that shite with a barge pole. That leaves the Z-list and WAGS. The WAGS would rather spend their money on Louboutin's and private visits to the STD clinic due to their husbands shagging everything with a pulse whilst the Z-list are rapidly running out of money due to their divorce lawyers' fees. A fucking clue please?!

    There are muppets out there - it was reported that Gavin Henson - Charlotte Church's exboyfriend - was intrested.

    I'd think they would go after an ex Eastenders or a Holly Oaks actor or an ex Big Brother contestant.
    It's not Hollywood material but it's enough glamour to suck in some raw meat and has some name recognition for use in media stories.

    Give them a few months and they'll be spouting off about having "a toolbox to deal with life's problems"

    This has the old CC number on it.

  18. SeenTheLight Member

    It's brand new.

    Well done, how the fuck did you spot that so quickly?


    The Old Sessions House, Clerkenwell Green, London, EC1R 0NA


    You can check out the Google Street view of the surrounding area.

    Wikipedia - Middlesex Sessions House

    • Who is the current owner? Any way we can find out? (Land Registry Office?)
    • Is this genuine or are they trolling us? They claim to be £40,000 short of a downpayment.
    • Clerkenwell is an affluent area.
    • Is this in the City of London or Islington? Assuming they get this, would they get generous tax relief?
  21. CarltonBANKS Member

    well observed, it is indeed the old number. Did they port it over to New Cavendish Street?
  22. Anonymous Member

    Don't know if they're serious about buying it but it looks like it has been for sale.
  23. CarltonBANKS Member

    I see. They are selling via [IMG][IMG]

    I noticed that the Duke of Kent's wearing masonic regalia. From there a quick trip to google for masonic lodges in London supplied that photo of the staircase.

    Or I could be a mason and familiar with the building.

    Yipee! Another historic building for them to shit up. Davey's appetite for real estate is insatiable.

    He needs to expand his property portfolio so he can brag about 'explosive growth' to mask shrinkage in numbers of Scientologists.
    They have enough reserve funds; they could buy that building outright. (but I suppose that's how ideal orgs are funded - money has to come from fresh donations?)

    All this explains the fail that is New Cavendish Street: very little to no signage, zero recruitment ('stress tests')
    They are failing pretty hard, how are they keeping their morale up?
  28. Anonymous Member

    Being told they'll be moving in soon.

    Rumour is, CC staff are being told they already have the money to buy the building.

    Anybody check out the number on the flier yet?
  29. BigBeard Member

    From the sale notice:
    For us non-Brits, what does this mean regarding what the $cilons can, and can't, do to the building??

  30. Perikles Member

    Means there are restrictions to what they can do to the outside. Inside is fine to be raeped tho. This is why so many fine pubs have been desecrated.

    Not sure about whether outside alterations have differences in restriction for permanent and temporary, but i think even temporary alterations are gonna involve srs lgl biz.

    Today I was asked by the Executive Director of CC London why I had decided to become a Premier Benefactor of the Arts. It is a good question, because for me it was the only thing to do.

    I lived and worked in Hollywood for a number of years and Celebrity Centre International was my local organization. My work in Hollywood was always involved in some way with the arts; I moved between the movie world, music, writing and photography. CC looked after me, CC cared about me and CC was always there whenever I needed it. CC was always there as a safe, sane and kind oasis from some of the less attractive denizens of the entertainment world.

    When I moved back to London in the mid 1980s, I ran the PR department of an indie record label and managed the careers of some rock and roll musicians. When I heard that a CC London was being started by some pioneering souls, I was both interested and intrigued. Later, when I founded my own photographic company, CC London had become a reality and I started on course there. The space wasn’t very large and there were lots of stairs to negotiate. Then it moved to larger premises, once again with many flights of stairs. More recently it has moved to its temporary home in New Cavendish Street which is all on the ground floor, with no stairs to climb.

    During all those years a number of very dedicated souls have been spending hours and hours scouring London looking for that all important building, that place which could house the Ideal Org that LRH, the most abundantly creative genius in the world, so eloquently describes.

    “The ideal org is the image one builds toward. It is the product of the causative actions of many. Anything which is short of an ideal org is an outpoint that can be put right. The end product is not just an ideal org but a new civilization already on its way.”


    Whenever we could, my wife Gillian and I would make a flow to the dream of a CC London Ideal Org and little by little the amounts we invested grew until we arrived at our current ‘Premier Benefactor of the Arts’ status. I use the word invested rather than donated because for me it is without doubt an investment, an investment that offers returns which are not available in any other area of life.

    I continue to work with some of the world's greatest photographers, writers, actors and musicians. I consider it a privilege to call Celebrity Centre London my home; it is part of the adventure of my lifetime and there are few better places in the world in which to embark on such an adventure than here, where art and artists are free to inspire the world.

    We have located a new building, a perfect building, a building that inspires and breathes life, a building that has been ticking away during many decades waiting patiently for us to arrive and fill it and allow it to be the vessel that will house LRH’s dream. Like nearly all the buildings it has stairs but what stairs! They are stairs that will take you, your friends and loved ones to freedom and create in London the most monumental effects that will be felt all over the world.

    Please join us in contributing to securing the Ideal Celebrity Centre London building.

    So all you gotta do to be a "Premiere Benefactor of the Arts" is "invest?"

    Not unlike the Humanitarian Awards they give to people who donate large amounts.
    You don't earn status in Scientology. You buy it.

    Cannot see that this was ever answered.

    Yes CB is correct - a search of the Land Registry will show both the current freeholder and/or the current leaseholder presuming the estate is registered (which it will almost definitely be if it was transferred after 2002).

    It is a while since I did any conveyancing but it does not cost much. Did anyone ever seek out the official copies/title deeds?

    There may also be additional documents available such as charges registered (mortgages) who transferred the property and a schedule of restrictive covenants (things that the "owner" is not allowed to do with the property.
