Now, since this whole saga started, with Robbert claiming to have contacted various dead crop circle related figures, and the general howls of disgust from the crop circle community, I was surprised that suddenly Talbott, Van Broeke and other supporters such as Suzanne Taylor, suddenly became very, very quiet. It seems that after the outrage they were keeping their heads down. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. As Colin Andrews has posted on his website, Nancy Talbott has been very vocal and very blunt by telling the complaining Chorley family to “get on with your life”. So love and light!
The Chorley family have felt very upset with the whole affair and have contacted Nancy directly. Nancy has responded thus:
Please save yourself the time and trouble of any further correspondence. You have already made your viewpoint clear and I have done my best to do the same. I don’t intend to read any additional assaults on my or Robbert’s intelligence or integrity. You must either accept what I have written as truthful, or not, and get on with your life–because I have said what I can.
That is about as sensitive and conciliatory as a house-brick to the side of your head.
Understandably the Chorley family have responded:
From : Richard Chorley
To: Nancy Talbott
Nancy…A rather rude and arrogant response to a simple email telling you I would respond to your original message today.
Okay, let’s get some things clear from the start. Assaults? Very dramatic language… The only assaults that have taken place here are the ones perpetuated by Robbert on the name and memory of my Father and others. You have an absolute audacity in using such language when you have willingly helped perpetuate this rubbish and in the process have upset and seriously annoyed a number of families. And are you now telling me that we as a family do not have the right to contend claims such as this if we feel suspicious of people’s motives? You are telling me to get on with my life? How about you and Robbert getting on with your lives and leaving my Father, Mr Delgado and others to rest in peace? How about you remove all this nonsense from your websites, given you are now fully aware that your claims are seriously upsetting the relatives of the men concerned?
Please do not tell me that you claim to care about any of that in the slightest. You do not or you would not persist in championing this stuff. You are far more concerned with your own profile and selling Robbert to the world. That is reality, Miss Talbott.
Reverse the situation….How do you think you would feel if obscure mediums you had never heard of, began posting claims and videos like this all over ‘Youtube’ and other websites/media vehicles regarding your dead relatives? That your dead relatives were in ‘touch’ with people and those people were purporting supposed views, positions and statements that were/are completely at odds with everything your relatives ever stood for and believed in life?…You would not feel angry and insulted? You would
not feel that your relatives memory had been ‘assaulted’ as you call it? Think honestly about that and the application of the word ‘assaulted’.
As usual with people in in these situations you are deliberately avoiding detail although that is not surprising….Robbert’s claim that my Father had apologised for ‘Stating they’d made all the crop circles’ shows exactly how flawed his perspectives are….As I have already told you, my Father and Doug Bower never once claimed to have made ‘all the Corn Circles’ and it was a point of major annoyance to my Father that this piece of spurious disinformation was constantly used against him and Doug over many
years….In fact I would state that it was the single most annoying factor to him of the entire saga…They conceived the original methods and constructed the original renowned circles, which is what my Father and Doug were talking about in their original interviews…but other Circle makers quickly cottoned on and before too long there were various other teams at work….I repeat, why on earth would my Father be apologising in death for something he never said or claimed in life anyway? The whole concept is utterly ludicrous…..
Regarding your comments about sincerity, honesty and motives etc. As a number of other people have pointed out, if you and Robert were genuinely sincere, then you would have endeavored to have contacted the families concerned with all this, long before you decided to blurt it all out to the world. If you had really wished to contact us, it would have been a relatively simple trail in the Crop Circle world. The truth is you never had any intention of contacting us and neither did he. These ridiculous claims
have been slammed across the globe as part of a naked promotional campaign on behalf of Robbert’s supposed gifts….You know that, he knows that and we know that. Of course there are always gullible people out there who hang on all this as if it is some type of mystic revelation but surely you can see that the images in the video are clearly taken from stills of my Father when he was alive! Is Robbert with his great ‘gift’ really trying to ask us to accept that the ‘form’ of those beyond this world reflects exactly that of their former worldly bodies?!! And you are really asking me to take you seriously dear?….
Of course you do realise that if all this was true, it would represent the greatest events to ever take place in the history of mankind? Genuine bona-fide appearances from the other side? Caught on camera? Now, if you really believed that to have taken place and that you were party to close contact with the ‘vehicle’, would you really go around sending rude emails to the relatives, telling them they would simply have to accept your version and to ‘get on with their lives’? No, I feel that the human beings selected for events of such magnitude would exhibit far more grace and consideration for the relatives of the supposed visitors, a fair comment? I belive that sincere people would be far more concerned with communicating with those relatives and showing them the validity of their claims…Surely you can see the ration of such points? Perhaps you would care to ponder on the issues raised in this email and examine your own conscience in relation to all of this. We are talking about real people here, sons and daughters, grandchildren who loved their Grandfather very dearly, you claim to be acting with sincerity yet send emails like that last one?
I request again that you remove from your website all details of these claims and further ask you to pass this message onto Robbert at the earliest possible opportunity. In addition, I request that you ask Robbert to contact us personally with any proof he may wish to share with us regarding all this. Surely he would be prepared to do this if he is acting with sincerity and in the manner you claim?
These messages have been forwarded from Richard Chorley to Colin Andrews, who graciously alerted me to what was happening, the original posting for this is on Colins website and I urge you to visit to see the whole story: http://www.colinandrews.net/David_Chorley-Family-Statement-Colin_Andrews-Crop_Circles.html
It seems to me, in my humble opinion, that Talbott and Co. are slightly rattled now. Not only has their little sideshow hit the buffers, but I do not think they expected on such a forceful response from the Chorley family. Talbott is not exactly trying to calm the waters. Robbert has gone to ground feeling “depressed”, and I wonder if this will end up with lawyers involved. If Talbott and van Broeke had at least tried to calm the waters, at least appear to sound a little sensitive to the families protestations, I think this might have blown over by now. But what we are left with is a situation where every utterance by Talbott and van Broeke will be pounced upon and greater scrutiny on van Broeke and his alleged gifts, which is not what either of them want I believe. The ethics of mediums and psychics is a very grey area, but sensitivity must be high on any list when dealing with the relatives of a deceased family member. Especially when claiming to have messages from them.
