Psychics surprised by government grant

Two self-described "clairvoyants" have been given £4,500 by a Department for Work and Pensions job creation scheme. They will use this money to train bereaved persons to contact their dead relatives.

Mr. Rees defended their acceptance of the funds: 'People who feel their tax money has been wasted should remember that if they'd lost a child they would go to a medium to get peace that their loved one has passed safely and is in a better place.
The couple, who have been working as mediums for five years, admitted they were surprised to get the Want2Work grant aimed at setting up new businesses.


  1. I know this is an old post and I personally don't believe pschics exist, but none the less, hypothectically;
    precognition and spirit channeling are two different psychic abilities. Foretune tellers and mediums are both categorised as psychics, though it does not imply they have the same (alleged) abilities. The photo of 'psychic fair is cancelled due to unforseen weather' poster that has done the rounds on the web is also not ironic, as for all we know the fair could have been full on mind readers, remote viewers or telepathy and telekinesis practitioners, all of which are classified as psychics though not necessarily having precognition as one of their psychic abilities.

    1. Since this is a blog that firmly believes in preciseness of language, I'll quite agree with you.
