Chris French - real life psychic investigator.

This article is a review of a film by Chris French about psychics.

I know that sentence is confusing (in fact it's plain wrong) but if you read the comments (oldest first) under this article you will get the point. Had me in stitches...
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con

The comments were pretty good...have to say I made that mistake on first glance...looked him up and it turns out he's a colleague of my sister's (or possibly former colleague...I didn't check that closely)

We know Chris, he was at the UKS conference at Muncaster, seems like a nice geezer.

I first met Prof Chris at the Mannion demonstration at St James's Church Piccadilly. That is where Chris challenged Mannion to have his claims tested. Mannion agreed, in public, but the testing never took place, as far as I know.


He's a relaxed, easy-going chap.

He was editor of The Skeptic magazine for a long while. Used to turn up at every Skeptics in the Pub meeting back in the old days when there was only one SitP. Definitely one of the good guys.
