Wrong again. I didn't attend the group in July, as I was ill. But, it is obvious to me, one of the people there spread bad blood about me. Tonight, I was told the group don't want me to go any more.
The cause. Last month, I got in a heated row with one of the members, on a PM on FB. My view is that British people should be considered for jobs in the UK, ahead of Asians, Poles, and coloureds. This is NOT racist, but a social comment on the situation in the UK. The person spread the word last month at the club -- behind my back -- that I was a racist.
The outcome. Because this person has pull, and is influential in the area, his word alone got me banned. I never had a chance to state my case. And you thought kangaroo courts don't exist.
The last time. This is the last time I will do public readings, you have no idea how much courage it took for me to take that step. I am going to be like a hermit crab from now on, and stay out of sight. Besides, with this person's connections, no matter how good I am, I have become a marked man.
