Patrick Cotter O’Brien, “The Bristol Giant” born 1760 in Kinsale, County Cork; died Hotwells, Bristol, 1806, was over eight feet tall. He fought exploitation by showmen and opportunist medical careerists and was imprisoned for his cause. He became his own promoter and to enjoy privacy ventured out in the hours of darkness to sometimes startling effect.
His final wish was to be buried securely under 12 feet of concrete. This was difficult to achieve as the surgeon John Hunter was to steal his body before burial. He was forced to hand it back and Patrick’s last wish was granted at St Johns Chapel
A century after his death the ghouls of Bristol University triedto rob his grave but were thwarted by the steel reinforcement and the outrage of local people. Another violation occurred in 1972 when the ghouls examined Patrick and re-interred him. The site was edeveloped in 1986 and Patrick was taken away. It is said that he was cremated respectfully although the Royal College of Surgeons still display one of his arms
I ask the question, what was the purpose of these outrages? It cannot be scientific, as ample study was done on the sensitive Patrick when he was still alive. Also many people living today suffer his affliction. Can anybody enlighten me about the body snatchers who abuse us even after death?
It came to pass that a creature of such wickedness that its only joy was in domination came into being. The Wrecker.
Having plundered the cultures of the enlightened, it created an anti-culture of secrecy and wickedness. The Wrecker was full of lust greed and avarice. Scorning spirituality, the vile creature became obsessed with material things. Its violence knew no bounds as it roamed the Earth destroying beauty and harmony.
The just people fought to survive as the Wrecker attacked their homes, families, language and culture. Whole populations were used as assets to fuel the system of greed and immorality as the Wrecker became increasingly frightened about the inevitable collapse of his cancerous ideology.
After The Wrecker had engaged in one of its most hysterical bouts of self-harm, he decided that some of his victims who he had previously forced to a foreign land would be useful elsewhere.
In the second part of the twentieth century, people from the Caribbean were encouraged to come to Great Britain to work. Many of these workers came to live in St Pauls, Bristol.
Typically, of their positive attitude, they promoted an understanding of their culture which was appreciated by the local people and fellow overseas workers. The most well known feature of this is the St Pauls Carnival. The wrecker became enraged by people working on a building of love in complete opposition to his philosophy of selfish self-obsession.
It has long been Bristol City Council policy not to house people of Afro-Caribbean origin in St Pauls and the council took over the long running and self-sufficient carnival. They have cancelled the carnival because they cannot afford to run something that’s already up and running. They now need the area and once again the needs of the victims of the wrecker are ignored.
Please help resist the Wrecker! A monster is most dangerous when it is in its death throes
