SIRF has recently come out with two articles on Fraser Perring’s charlatanism [1,2]. (I have previously written about Perring’s Viceroy Research here and here.) While I am strongly of the opinion that Perring is a charlatan, I question the attacks on Perring’s history as a social worker. Many people who attack Perring point out that he was barred/banned from being a social worker. In my opinion, the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service (that barred him from social work) and Lincolnshire County Council’s Children’s Services also deserve scrutiny. They may be just as dishonest as Fraser Perring.
