the history of a coordinated Hate & smear campaign

Since February 2021, CEO Paul Waugh and the Associates of Lighthouse Global have been on the receiving end of a malicious hate and smear campaign, combined with acts of deliberate and relentless constructive sabotage. This timeline is here to help you the viewer gain a better understanding about the nature of this hate and smear campaign by walking you through the key events from it’s genesis in February 2021 through to the present day, whilst noting how the people of Lighthouse have responded over time.

Two Lighthouse Associates have attempted to take their own lives as a result of the pressure inflicted upon them by the vengeful assailants of Lighthouse, the legacy media and a weaponised government agency.

More information about Lighthouse holding the BBC accountable can be found in the Lighthouse Vs The BBC section of the main menu, including the Lighthouse Vs The BBC page.

There are 3 components of this relentless campaign that has had a devastating impact on our lives and livelihoods at Lighthouse… click the 3 points below.

1. Constructive Sabotage: The attacks on Lighthouse have been orchestrated and coordinated with the intention to cause maximum damage through online predatory trolling, lying to the media and weaponising government institutions.

2. Hate Campaign: The implicit and explicit intention of the hateful people behind this campaign has been to completely and utterly destroy the lives and livelihoods of those at Lighthouse.

3. Smear Campaign: Constructive saboteurs have sought to lie and deceive in order to publicly humiliate, defame and discredit the people, work and reputation of Lighthouse.

First anonymous post on Reddit about Lighthouse

Lighthouse’s response was to let this go and monitor the situation to see what would unfold. However, it was already evident these posts had a very destructive agenda given the very biased and prejudiced nature of the content and the fact it was being conducted anonymously. It is suspected and later confirmed that many of those behind these anonymous posts are a mix of some disgruntled ex-clients and coercively controlling / abusive family members of Lighthouse Associates trying to pressure their adult children into ceasing their mentorship with Lighthouse. Often this is because these family members are trying to hide their past neglect and abuse of their now grown children, including instances of childhood sexual abuse.

April 2021

An anti-Lighthouse Smear campaign develops and a Lighthouse targeted trolling website is launched spreading disinformation

This was the first instance of any consistent or coordinated efforts to smear Lighthouse in any way since it was conceived in 2004 as FranklinWaugh, nearly 17 years previously! This is a clearly coordinated attempt to CANCEL Lighthouse by trolling and constructively sabotaging their reputation and business. However, Lighthouse simply decides to quietly monitor the situation, not wanting to add fuel to the fire.

August 2021

Persistence of Reddit posts with no sign of stopping.

Lighthouse compiles their first legal discovery document to present to their specialist lawyers. As part of this they formulate an online education strategy to start publicly addressing what the lawyers identified as predatory trolling. This is conducted indirectly through social media posts and blogs, to avoid any direct contact on Reddit.

20th October 2021

BBC Journalist Mike Cowan posts on Reddit looking for stories on cults and receives several replies from Anti-Lighthouse trolls

Although not looking for information on Lighthouse specifically, it’s recorded that several anonymous accounts targeting Lighthouse reply to his message offering details about Lighthouse. It’s strongly believed this is where the BBC ACTUALLY first hears about Lighthouse. N.B. Lighthouse Associate would write to Mr Cowan in February of 2022 inviting him to investigate Lighthouse and learn the truth about the smear campaign against them.

26th November 2021

Ex-Lighthouse Associate, Richard Thomas, falsely accuses lighthouse of theft on LinkedIn AND makes defamatory reddit post

Although posted anonymously it is clear to Lighthouse that the anonymous post on Reddit is by Mr Thomas (which he later openly confirms). Lighthouse’s Associates responded directly on LInkedIn with multiple warnings of potential legal action. Work on a Lighthouse Community site to counter the defamatory disinformation begins.

8th December 2021

A dedicated anti-Lighthouse reddit forum is created to coordinate anonymous and hateful sentiment against Lighthouse

This subreddit forum is launched by Ex-Lighthouse Associate Richard Thomas and an obsessively malicious predatory troll with no previous connections to Lighthouse (later identified as Jon Breen, an ex-BBC employee with a conviction for stalking). Lighthouse publicises a warning to those known to be trolling and attempting to destroy Lighthouse’s reputation that their employers would be contacted as a means of accountability. These warnings are mocked on Reddit leading to two employers being contacted. (*Click heading for information on Jon Breen)

Lighthouse CEO makes an open invitation for all critics to meet and find a resolution but only receives mockery on reddit

Lighthouse CEO, Paul Waugh, makes an open invitation to all critics of Lighthouse to meet at his home in order to resolve the situation maturely. This offer is also scoffed at on Reddit with numerous excuses of why not to attend. (*Click to read of Paul Waugh’s invitation)

28th December 2021

employers of known anti-lighthouse trolls reply to our communications and ask for more information

Lighthouse provided extensive evidence of these individuals’ online trolling and attempts of constructive sabotage through comprehensive reports with hundreds of pages of screenshots, explanations their identification and description of the wider smear campaign they are part of. This also included the impact that was having on us Lighthouse as individuals and a business. Lighthouse’s intention was to work with the employers to stop this destructive behaviour and help the individual reform.

1st February 2022

The Daily Mail Newspaper approaches Lighthouse for comment on various allegations against Lighthouse, including that of being a ‘cult’.

Despite Lighthouse’s attempts to find a mature resolution with its critics, those involved in the now highly malicious smear campaign instead choose to go to the UK press with distorted accounts and fabricated allegations. Lighthouse responds to reporter Tom Kelly with a detailed 17,000-word response, backed up with over 20 character references. Other than a few follow-up questions nothing more is heard until an article is published in April 2022.

17th February 2022

Lighthouse Writes to BBC Journalist Mike Cowan Inviting Him To investigate the truth behind malicious smears against them

Long before any confirmed news of a BBC investigation into Lighthouse was heard of, Lighthouse Associate James Mills contacted BBC reporter, Mike Cowan, asking him for an interview. This was after Mr Cowan had been seen posting on Reddit in late 2021 and had received comments from anti-Lighthouse Reddit trolls. James Mills wrote to him in February 2022. In his email, James Mills writes, u0022These people who have a destructive agenda towards us would love for you to do an investigation into us and frankly speaking, we would too… but only if based on reason and fact!…and…We want the truth out there as soon as and as comprehensively as possibleu0022. There was no reply.

28th March 2022

Despite invitations to find a resolution, informing employers and warnings of legal action, the constructive sabotage shows no signs of ceasing or even abating.

Lighthouse’s attempts to reason with those trying to destroy its business and reputation fell on deaf ears, so they started to report the predatory trolls / constructive saboteurs to the police. On 28th March Police immediately offered to arrest one particular person for harassment, but as they are a family member of an existing Lighthouse Associate, they are told a warning would be enough. Preventing that arrest out of sympathy would later regretted.

20th April 2022

Daily Mail publishes a sensationalised hit-piece article ignoring 99% of Lighthouse’s 17,000 word response

Within 48 hours the Senior Associate Partners of Lighthouse met with CEO Paul Waugh to dissect and explain the context and truth to every statement made. This 5-hour meeting was published online and signified the launch of the Waugh Rooms.

April 2022

Daily Mail Threatens to Publish a 2nd anti-lighthouse article

In Lighthouse’s filmed response to the 1st Daily Mail article the name of one of their malicious sources, who was a victim of child sexual abuse, had been revealed in error. Although the person had given past recorded verbal permission, when Lighthouse realised the legal error in not having that permission in writing the video was taken down and edited within 24 hours. However, the Daily Mail’s Tom Kelly threatened a second article as a result. (*click the heading to see part of a video response to this)

8th May 2022

Daily Mail produces a second article about Lighthouse’s error.

After the name of the child sexual abuse survivor were revealed in their public response video in error the Daily Mail printed a follow up article to highlight this and pour further scorn on CEO Paul Waugh.

Multiple government agencies begin being triggered against LIghthouse through fabricated and exaggerated complaints

Those trying to constructively sabotage and destroy Lighthouse’s reputation and business attempt to collectively overwhelm its beleaguered resources by triggering multiple government agency ‘investigations’ using false claims. These claims are a clear attempt to force Lighthouse into deleting crucial data evidence against the false claims in the name of data protection. Lighthouse refuses to delete any crucial data due to the legal and criminal investigations against their attackers by the police.   

25th May 2022

Paul Waugh actively starts posting on twitter, sharing of our research as well as holding our constructive saboteurs accountable.

Mr Waugh starts to offer renewed opportunities to meet in person and resolve any disputes. He also requests those smearing him and Lighthouse to give permission to release private data evidence in relation to the false accusations online. Knowing the release of such evidence would totally discredit their false accusations and allegations no response is ever made by those smearing Lighthouse.

Launch of Lighthouse’s Predatory Troll Assault and False Accusation Register

Lighthouse publishes a register and record of all malicious trolling and contructive sabotage posts made on reddit along with verified and suspected identities of the anonymous authors.

Senior Associate, Adam Wallis, in suicidal condition, makes formal complaint against Insolvency Service harrassment

Despite not being a director, Mr Wallis had been confronted in person at his private home by Insolvency ‘Investigator’ Mr Seymour where he informed Mr Seymour of his recent suicide attempt. Despite making it clear he was not to be contacted any further, due to his condition, Mr Seymour continued to bombard Mr Wallis with threatening letters. This led to Mr Wallis making a formal complaint to senior Insolvency Service officers, Alec Pybus and Edna-Maria Okhiria. (To date this complaint has been ignored and unanswered)

The Anti-Lighthouse Subreddit coordinates efforts to weaponise the Insolvency Service against Lighthouse

Evidence emerges via the hubris of the predatory anti-Lighthouse trolls and smear campaigners in October 2022 that they are colluding directly with the Insolvency Service. As would have to be the case, given there was no truth to their claims and would be later discovered, these individuals had to resort to defrauding the Secretary of State in their bid to push what was therefor a corrupt ‘investigation’ through. See February 2023 and after for what transpired from this.

6th November 2022

Lighthouse Associates start their first offensive phase of responding to the trolling and constructive sabotage against them

20 months after the first posts appear on Reddit against Lighthouse, its Associates cease being on the defensive and begin an offensive approach against those trying to cancel them. They begin by staging a peaceful demonstration outside Rani Singh’s River Radio premises, in response to the lies and falsehoods being shared by her publicly on air.

IPSO, The Independent Press Standards Organisation, agrees to investigate Lighthouse’s complaint about the Daily Mail

After months of investigation and deliberation into Lighthouse’s complaint against the Daily Mail, the regulator IPSO begins their formal investigation into the Daily Mail’s handling of its articles.

All hitherto communication with the Daily Mail and its staff is ceased.

Lighthouse discovers the announcement of a petition by the secretary of state to ‘wind up’ (forcefully shut down) the company

Lighthouse publicly announce this development and work hard in a very pressurised and limited timeframe to respond to the High court in a very complex process without resources to pay for any legal counsel and without any guidance or support offered by the state. However, a categoric package of evidence over 600+ pages is filed to completely discredit and disprove all allegations against Lighthouse and reveal the self-evidency of the lies upon which the petition is based. The petition was the result of the multiple government agencies falsely triggered against Lighthouse in May 2022.

The BBC invites Paul Waugh and Jai Singh for interview regarding an apparent forthcoming ‘documentary’ on Lighthouse

Lighthouse attends first hearing for the secretary of state’s winding up petition

During a short video online conference, Lighthouse director Chris Nash attends as a ‘litigant in person’ meaning without professional Legal counsel. This leaves him in the dark about most of the legal process and technicalities involved. In a swift and efficient legal process the judge decides to u0022set asideu0022 all 600+ pages of Lighthouse’s evidence without review. This is justified in the name of efficiency and saving the court’s time and resources of having to examine the evidence. Lighthouse’s protests are swept aside.

The BBC announces it will be broadcasting ‘A Very British Cult’ in April

Lighthouse discovers BBC3 is advertising the broadcast of their upcoming programme and learn its name for the first time; ‘A Very British Cult’. This advertisement predicts the u0022very surreal showdownu0022 regarding the second High Court hearing 5 days before the court hearing even took place! This is clear evidence that the BBC’s programme had been prescripted according to the narrative they wanted to present from the start… regardless of the truth. This is why the Catrin Nye and the BBC were never genuinely interested in seeing or hearing any of Lighthouse’s evidence.

28th March 2023

Lighthouse is wound up in the high court upon the request of CEO Paul Waugh due to minor legal technicalities

Lighthouse CEO Paul Waugh, realising that Lighthouse have been manipulated into a legal corner, based on a technicality and lacked the legal counsel to see any alternative, proactively asked the High Court to wind up Lighthouse International Group on his request. Although this is proven by the court transcript, it is later published in the media that the reasons for the company being wound were due to company wrongdoing. These are and remain false reports.

Lighthouse Expose how A Very British Cult knowingly Supported and Protected A family guilty of child sexual Abuse to attack them

In a video compilation of recordings and evidence, Lighthouse reveals how the BBC lied to protect and support the family of Erin (Alias) featured in their programme. This is extremely significant as this family is behind and was a catalyst to the anti-Lighthouse smear campaign. They have sought to smear and destroy Lighthouse’s reputation and business in order to cover up and hide the crimes of Erin’s Stepbrother who raped her along with his friend when she was 13 yrs old. However, the BBC hid this from the public and lied about events to try and falsely blame Lighthouse for financially exploiting Erin.

Paul Waugh Publishes an Open heartfelt letter to jeffrey leigh-jones on x

Paul shared an open-letter to Jeffrey as an appeal to his and any heart and any spirit of Christ that might be in him, if at all. Jeffrey having lied to the British media after presenting himself as a Christian brother to Paul and others while he was at Lighthouse had clearly put himself in a precarious situation with regards to his eternity and Paul’s letter to him was about being a brother to him in return, out of care for him and because of what his non-repentance will do to him. It greatly grieves Paul and those at Lighthouse the things that will need to be confronted publicly in order to hold Jeffrey accountable if he doesn’t repent. Jeffrey had shared a lot of disturbing and traumatic experiences he’d had with his family, including the fact his mother had once passionately kissed him, causing a lot of emotional turmoil in him, yet Jeffrey later painted a very different picture to the BBC in order to vilify Paul and Lighthouse.

‘Goliath’ Fails to pitch up for the david vs goliath live showdown

As expected, none of those invited to the live, real-time showdown agree to attend and present their evidence under scrutiny, nor to hear and answer to Lighthouse’s evidence. This alone is a significant victory in proving to the public that the BBC and their sources have zero confidence in their position for what ought to have been an oportunity for them to humiliate Lighthouse and prove themselves vindicated.

The BBC would not come to Lighthouse and they had dodged any possible confrontation outside the True Crime Awards the day before, so Lighthouse Associates took to protesting outside Broadcasting House in central London early in the morning. As well as speaking to members of the public and trying to interview BBC staff members, BBC security challenged Jatinder Singh about this who’s retort was a request to bring Tim Davie out to speak with him. Needless to say Mr Davie did not show up. Paul Waugh posted a video that captured this interaction on his X feed.
