Home' Nova National : August 2011 Contents the laughing stock of the country; he was
the butt of jokes and ridicule from Land's
End to John O'Groats. He was obviously
in some kind of altered state as his brain
attempted to balance all the energy and
information that had been downloaded
into it, which, in some ways, was a blessing,
as ridicule may be a safer place than
scorn; neither individuals nor societies
enjoy their shadow being exposed.
As a teenager watching this trans-
formation play out in my sitting room, and
finding some of David's many television
interviews that followed excruciating
as he was mocked by the nation's best
loved presenters in front of 17 million
viewers, I could also feel something deeper
occurring that I would later come to
recognise as the hero's journey. I saw
him grappling with, and trying to make
sense of, a deep spiritual experience and
surrendering to the will of the Divine to
become a servant delivering this message
to his fellow humans at the Divine's
bequest. I thought of Isaiah in the Bible
and how his visions and entreaties for his
society to change its ways, now praised in
the Bible, would have been perceived by
the people in control of society, not wanting
their position or the status quo disturbed.
And how much more so in the 20th
century with the juggernaut of Western
materialism so out of control. And then
I went back to sleep trying to fit into
society as a young English man.
That was until seven years later I
underwent a somewhat similar wake up
experience. And so I remembered David
Icke and turned to some of his books
for solace, comfort, answer and sense of
shared connection. His is an incredible
life story, the tale of striving for excellence
against foes aimed at destroying the true
civilisation, that of compassion, care and
common decency. His Goliath was not a
monster in physical form, but the same
abhorrent archetypes hidden in the
heartless and dysfunctional systems of
David set up home on the Isle of
Wight, a short ferry ride off the southern
coast of England. He spent as little time
at the BBC as possible, instead spending
as much of his spare time with his young
family and in nature. It was his interest in
preserving the natural environment that
that led him to join a nature group and
later the British Greens party where he
came face to face with the corruption
behind many local and national decisions.
In a local court case brought in an
attempt to protect a parcel of nature, it was
obvious to all that the decisions were made
at a meeting of the local Freemasons only
for the charade to be played out in court
later. David had come face to face with the
the name would be as familiar to you as
butterscotch biscuits and PG tips tea,
for his voice and face were beamed into
every household in Britain most nights of
the week and every Saturday afternoon
when the whole country sat around the
TV transfixed by Grandstand, the most
watched show in Britain. This Saturday
afternoon ritual had replaced Sunday
morning worship for most of the inhabitants
of England's green and pleasant land. For
all but those who knew him intimately,
David Icke was a bastion of English
Prior to becoming a sports journalist
(the second most sought after profession
for English schoolboys), David was a
professional footballer whose promising
career as a goalkeeper was cut short by
extreme arthritis at a very early age. It
was David's tenacity that overcame this
affliction, enabling him to continue as a
professional footballer for as long as he
did. And, after retiring in his mid 20s, this
same dedication saw him work his way
up from a junior newspaper position in a
dwindling provincial town to one of the
top jobs in sports media, arguably in the
Yet, as with his football career, once
he clawed his way to the pinnacle the
dissatisfaction would creep in; it was
obvious to viewers that David, with his
understated demeanour was not your
average television presenter jockeying for
position or ego elevation.
And so it was that nearing the height
of his journalism career, David underwent
an amazing change and transformation.
As far as the British public could see,
one week he was presenting late night
snooker in standard BBC suit and tie, the
next he was wearing aqua shell suits and
lecturing the asleep English public on the
fundamental truths of life and, not long
afterwards, publishing a book with himself
naked on the cover.
If he were just anybody in England this
transformation would have gone quite
unnoticed; it would have been put down
to a midlife crisis or an emotional break-
down. But because David was a familiar
name and face to everyone in Britain,
together with his incredible tenacity and
apparent disregard for people's opinions of
him, for a while he was on the news each
day -- this time not as a presenter, but as a
news item and spectacle.
He held press conferences to explain
the awakening he had undergone and
sought to lecture the powers that be
about where people should direct their
focus -- away from keeping the industrial-
ised machine churning along and towards
greater spiritual truth and awareness.
Overnight, David went from Mr Normal to

Love him or laugh at him,
David Icke is making the
world sit up and take notice
of the earth's expanding
consciousness. He speaks
with Jeremy Ball.
Unless you were brought up in
England, the name David Icke
will summon up the image of a
man railing against the machine
and accusing the hidden government
and masters of the New World Order
(NOW). If, though, like me you are on the
upper side of 30 and grew up in England,
Do some people seem successful, happy and living out their dreams?
Yet others seem lost, directionless, & unfulfilled?
