The email wasn't from ukp direct but from a gentleman stating this thread link and group.
I am more than happy to talk about anything I have passion about and thank you all for being so great to communicate with.
Big hugs xx
It doesn't surprise me that someone contacted you to try to disparage UKP. They will try anything to show us in a negative light. Doubtless it was a previously banned member or some fluffy cunt from Prossynet.
Regarding the programme, yes I was asked to appear in it, however I quite simply asked what was in it for me and it appeared absolutely nothing. There was no payment, which was pretty much as I expected, however when I asked that they would at least allow me to promote my book about punting in return they couldn't even guarantee that so I thought there was nothing to be gained by my participation.
I actually appeared in a TV investigative documentary about something else many years ago and know how much they edit too.
I can understand why a prostitute would be happy to appear as it will be good for business. Doubtless you will see your client base expand many fold owing to the programme, but for the life of me I can't understand why a punter would want to appear, unless you are a self promoting celebrity cunt such as Russell Brand who I have certainly no desire to see. I believe they probably had more difficulty getting punters to appear, especially on camera, hence their falling back on the likes of Brand. I expect he got paid too!
As for UKP 'not being happy with you' doubtless you can see that that is not true, it was more the programme as a whole that was criticised. However in the near four years of our existence UKP has always been subject to mischief making liars, so it is thoroughly unsurprising. They have probably also told you we are pimps, paedophiles and rapists which are the usual nonsensical accusations.
It would however be interesting to see where SAAFE aren't happy with you, as this is much more likely to be true. If that is the case you will be in good company - they aren't happy with us either.
