Sir Dr John Walsh of Brannagh

Postby davidhume » Fri Jun 02, 2006 7:08 am

The dubious qualifications and titles of the above gentleman were raised some time ago on another forum. However, as Dr Bear pointed out, the good man could not defend himself as his access to the forum was blocked so the matter was dropped.

Perhaps Dr Bear might like to ask Mr Walsh to give our forum members, who are mainly from the other forum, the benefit of an explanation!

As Mr Walsh was owner of an unaccredited university in the US, which subsequently relocated to Norfolk Island, a territory of Australia, from which Walsh falsely claimed 'Australian accreditation', misleading hundreds of its graduates, then upon been thrown out of Australia, leaving the records of the university abandoned in a warehouse with an unpaid bill until rescued by a former employee, I think this education forum have a right to learn more about this man!


"Also associated with the Brimeyer faction is a Mr John Walsh "of
Branagh", Chancellor of "Greenwich University", a degree mill based in
Hawaii. [23] He is an advocate of Brimeyer's pretension to be the
grandson of the Grand Duchess Maria Nicolaevna and therefore
legitimate claimant to the Russian throne. The fact that the bodies of
the Czar and his family have been discovered and that the two missing
bodies, of the Czarevich and one Grand Duchess (either Maria or
Anastasia), were documented as having been burnt, serves to disprove
this connection. Mr Walsh has claimed [24] that Brimeyer's descent
from the Czar is accepted by the Union of Russian Nobility and the
Monarchist Party; this author has been informed that this is
emphatically not the case and that this recognition is from a fringe
Monarchist organization, obviously entirely ignorant of the their
nation's dynastic laws. [25] More recently, Mr Walsh, now styling
himself "The Duke de Branagh and de Ronceray" circulated a letter
bearing the heading " The Regency of H.I.R.H. Prince Alexis II" laying
claim to run the Brimeyer organization. The address, a post box on
"Norfolk Island, South Pacific" which he described as a "former
British colony, now a parliamentary monarchy, located in the Pacific
Ocean about halfway between Australia and New Zealand". This letter,
dated 27 January 1996, states that Brimeyer's "passing is a great
loss, and not only to members of the Order of St John, but also to
Russia and Ukraine, and to the other countries from which he held
royal and priceley descent. In fact his death has proved such an
incalculable loss that one can say the history of Europe and of the
entire world has been affected". Indeed, one can say this, but anyone
who does so must be considered to be suffering from delusions. Walsh
claims to have visited the College of Arms, Westminster (the College
is actually situated in the City of London!) whose officers are
well-acquainted with the false pretensions of the late "Prince"
Alexis, and "Washington, in the United States of America, where
serious discussions were held with diplomatic and government persons".
Whether Walsh seriously believes the nonsensical and contradictory
claims of Brimeyer or is simply taking advantage of the ignorance of
others is difficult to tell. We may hope that Alexis's widow and
child, who are not mentioned in Walsh's letter, will have nothing
further to do with the whole ridiculous charade."

Is Walsh currently operating any doubtful educational venures that this board needs to be concerned with? If not, then he's basically a colorful character of historical interest to the DL world. If he wants to post here, then I'd certainly welcome him (and probably argue wih him). But I don't want to launch personal attacks at him just for sport.

I think this education forum have a right to learn more about this man!
*******
Why? What purpose would it serve?

Hmmm. Walsh and I are the only people I know of who have been banned from even looking at some website or other. Since we have so much in common (strangled laughter), if he's a duke maybe I could be a boiar or a voievod or something else cool.

On second thought, our exiled Romanian royals are the real thing--at least as far as that's possible for Hohenzollerns--and I don't believe they hand out titles of nobility as party favours.

Still, "Grand Dragoman of Bessarabia" has a certain (hollow) ring to it.

Like polystyrene, perhaps. Or mills.

:twisted:

As far as I'm concerned, you already are something cool. :!:

Yes, maybe just letting him RIP on Norfolk Island, dispensing 'justice'as the Chief Magistrate is the right thing to do ...
