David Icke - Voice in The Wilderness?

I remember following the footballing career of David Icke as goalkeeper for Coventry City before he moved into sports TV presentation with the BBC. He departed the BBC to investigate and develop his own spiritual journey to the echoes of considerable ridicule. We all had a chuckle at David throwing himself to the media lions, appearing in shiny tracksuits and espousing about great world conspiracies and reptiles in suits. Yet, ten or more years on and the diminutive Icke seems less the eccentric crackpot we first viewed him as.

In an age when people are steadily turning to alternative methods of living and see personal spirituality and growth as much a part of their lives as working out in the gym or reading a good book, today, David Icke is less the 'doomsayer' and more the voice come in from the wilderness.

Filmed in 2008, David Icke speaks candidly to Bill Ryan and Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot. You will find Icke, at worst, intriguing and perhaps having a the bones of a foreboding on the 'New World Order' and at best, a voice few may once have listened to, but now offers insight and revelation.

David Icke Biography.

David Vaughan Icke (pronounced /ˈaɪk/; born 29 April 1952) is a British writer and public speaker who has devoted himself since 1990 to researching "who and what is really controlling the world." A former professional football player, reporter, television sports presenter, and spokesman for the Green Party, he is the author of 20 books explaining his views.

Icke argues that he has developed a moral and political worldview that combines spiritualism with a passionate denunciation of what he sees as totalitarian trends in the modern world, a position that has been described as "New Age conspiracism."

At the heart of Icke's theories is the view that the world is ruled by a secret group called the "Global Elite" or "Illuminati," which he has linked to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an anti-Semitic hoax. In 1999, he published The Biggest Secret, in which he wrote that the Illuminati are a race of reptilian humanoids known as the Babylonian Brotherhood, and that many prominent figures are reptilian, including George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, Kris Kristofferson, and Boxcar Willie.

According to Political Research Associates, Icke's speaking engagements can draw a substantial audience in Canada. During an October 1999 speaking tour there, he received a standing ovation from students after a four-hour speech at the University of Toronto, while his books were removed from the shelves of Indigo Books after protests from the Canadian Jewish Congress. Icke and the Canadian tour become the focus of a British Channel 4 documentary by Jon Ronson, David Icke, the Lizards and the Jews.
