Rupert Sheldrake was instrumental in bringing Montague and I together and he was
there at his passing. He is an honourable man — a man of courage. Montague was concerned
when Rupert lost his funding and he told me to call Rupert to tell him to apply for
the Perrott-Warwick award. Rupert told me on many occasions that it would be a waste
of his time — they never give it to people not connected to a university. Montague
would not take no for an answer and kept asking me to call Rupert, which I did. Eventually
I had to put pressure on him — I told him Montague would go on until he did it. So
he applied for it and got it. I was the first person he called when he opened the
letter, he was delighted. It was my husband's way of saying thank you to him.
We need people of Rupert's calibre, who are prepared to stand-up for what they know
to be true. He is a good man and I wish him success in all that he does. Now I ask
you, IS THIS EVIDENCE?
