All the celebrity psychics have had to finally admit that their stage shows are for entertainment and/or experimental purposes only.

This is the result of a new law recently passed to protect consumers from being charged for services under false pretences.

Even the famous Mr Fry now carries a disclaimer on his website, saying he is only entertaining.

And about time too, I say!

but then they would already know that wouldn't they? and they should also have been aware of the new law coming out

Only right they should own up too.....then it's up to the viewer whether or not they believe what they're seeing/hearing is anything other than that!

I dont think you've missed anything Jax - I just like to put the case for the opposition every now and then, just to balance things out, you understand :-)

As some of you know I went to See Colin Fry about a month ago. During his opening spiel he did make a statement about the new law and that he had to say his show was for entertainment only. He was very miffed about it!! I have always gone to see such shows for entertainment, with the hope of seeing the mouth dropping news given to people that only they could have known. But Colin Fry failed to deliver. I didn't think the show was very good. Obviously on TV they have the luxury of editing all the bit's that look good!

Well good morning, I just knew you would be here...



I think Eldrick ought to carry the same disclaimer myself....

The shows on TV, ie Jonathan Edwards/Colin Fry etc when they start, the voice over person says "dah dah dah for entertainment purposes only" and they have done that for quite sometime.

Surely Colin must have seen these new laws coming?

I must say though on the odd occasion I have looked in on John Edward - and it has always stated "for entertainment" or something like that, I have seen him do some quite amazing things in that he can pick on a most unlikely object with regard to a member of the audience and sometimes they even have it with them!!!
