Evidence Moniques scheme isn’t working from farmers own words.
Recently a researcher we shall call P went to the Forest Hill formation near Marlborough and saw the farmer just about to cut this formation out. The researcher got the farmer to stop his tractor/mower and asked him why he was cutting it. The farmers words were thus (paraphrased)…
“We have had 20 years of these circles and at first it was manageable and we had money in the honesty boxes but now those get stolen so that doesnt work. People were a lot friendlier back then when they used to visit. Then we get people like Monique Klinkenbergh turning up with people on tours trying to bribe us with £500 to keep the circle and let people in. The crop is worth £2000 to us so we dont think £500 covers it. So we would rather cut it out to send a message to those who make them that we dont want any more. However if she wants to pay us £3000 we will let her have this circle and also you can put other circles in the field – but until then, no way!”
So there you have it. Monique turns up – insults the farmer with what they see as a low order bribe to allow the tourists in – else the farmer gets nothing. The farmer sees red and says he wont allow anyone in and cuts the formation. Now one has to wonder how many other farmers have got totally pissed off at some woman from Holland dictating to them what they can do on “their land”. We have heard that other farmers have been extremely upset to see people coming on their land and when asked what they think they are doing they show their access pass and think it gives them right of access. This situation is actually much worse than there not being any access pass at all – because not only does the pass advertise the location of the circles but it gives pass users this incorrect attitude that they can and should have access to the circle. Shes got 8k in the bank from last year and this was the best quality formation in Wilts and she still tries the £500 insult on farmers. She would be better off offering what the farmer wanted – alteast she would have one good formation close to home… so the farmer then cut it out straight after meeting her. I suspect because of her!
In the past people used to see the farmer and ask politely “can I see it” not they just start saying “we have got our pass so we can see it because this pass allows us”. Clearly the old way was better – because everyone knows the first few words are critical in forming a bond with the farmer.
I am also told that a Dutch tour bus which was connected to Monique arrived at a field and everyone piled into the field and then started walking across the crop to get in and out and were very much ignoring the tramlines.
I think everyone knows that Moniques approach in life in general is one of “I am here, the big woman has arrived” and when you mix this with an angry farmer is it any wonder that so far out of 24 circles she has permission to visit just 1… Clearly something about Moniques approach – most likely her gob is causing the problem. Still on she goes with her “successful” scheme from circle to circle making sure the farmer knows that circle is there which causes them to ban all entry and cut it even sooner due to her input. Perhaps eventually she will accept that maybe she isnt the best person for this job – maybe the farmers would be acceptant much more of an English person approaching them? Paul Jacobs has not had any of the problems she has and so far where as she has a 4% success rate with his approach Paul Jacobs has a 100% success rate in those farmers he has approached.
Monique – is ANY OF THIS SINKING IN… ?
I do hope some good formations turn up in Wilts and do not get cut… but with Klingonborg turning up and cocking it up – I think circles in Wilts are doomed and Wilts circlemakers know this and are still continuing to stay out of the area.
How do I put this politely – Maybe if MONIQUE FUCKED OFF and stopped her interference perhaps circlemakers would come back and circles would stay and not get cut? Just a possibility – worth a try eh!?
I spoke to a circlemaker called “G” at the Barge this eve who said he would only work on the edges of Wilts now quote “Because that fucking woman charging money to visit the circles can go fuck herself – who the fuck does she think she is”. Sorry but he was that polite. (seems like a circlemaker trait to be so polite).
Or does Monique want to be remembered as the woman who single handedly ruined 2014 by trying to take over.
