We then all handed over £5 to the doormen with Daniel which was to pay for the use of the "secret venue".
We were taken to a closed pub, the Ivy. When we got there Danile did not try to get in. He did not try the door. He did not look through the window. He did not phone anyone. What he did was to shout "Look! Look what they are doing! MI6 have closed the pub." We found out from the neigbours that the pub had been closed for a while.
We were then taken to the secret venue, another pub near Holborn which had two rooms reserved for free and which were booked two weeks ago by Daniel. His presentation consisted of a photo of him and some handouts claiming that We Are Change UK are "MOD". He gave NO hard eveidence which he claimed to have to support his claims. He said the Andy Baker is MOD "because he has a shifty face" and the Gareth Newnham is MOD "because he is bossy".
He did not have anything else.
When people asked for their money back Nick Kellerstrom siad the venue was expensive and had to be paid for. He did not know that Daniel had giot the room for free. The doormen were however paid the going minder rate. One of the doormen at least had to decency to be embarrassed and said he was "just doing a job" but nevertheless is a mate of Daniel's. [Lose him and fast if I were you my friend].
The whole night was a debacle and people were conned. This begs the question...Is he telling the truth about 7/7? Was he ever on the bus or is he a scam artist who went for compensation after the events and that he has simply grabbed a chance to make money? Is he the "normal guy" who just hapenned to be on the bus like he claims or does he have some other agenda? He says in his book that he is Nigerian but claimed last night to be from the Democratic Republic of The Congo. Was he once a doorman? He has written for the Voice having "exposed" Brixton police for running a crack factory. How / where did he get hold of the info for this? WHO is Daniel Obachike really?
Was he ever on the number 30 bus?
