    Thought we could do with a new thread, no real need to necrothread.

    According to my data they still have not paid off the "mortgage" yet, lol.

    I hope they have enough room for a heliport, and space for all the Bentleys and Rolls Royces people will flock in from Wallsall and Bromsgrove, Woverhampton's not far, yes I can see this Org filling up in no time (as in never!)

    Take a look at the Birmingham central Mosque and the ideal org looks pretty puny.

    Also note that there 140000 thousand Muslims in Birmingham and 1781 Scientologists in the whole of England and Wales per the last census.

    Birmingham has plenty of big mosques, temples and churches this idle org doesn't make them look that big or powerful.

    What's 'ideal' about Ideal Orgs is the fact that there's nobody inside them :)

    Smilla, how right you are empty orgs are good for me too.
  7. Local rag the Birmingham Mail is reporting that the Ideal Org in Moseley (Pitmaston) will open soon:

    I think it's lazy journalism and not much more than a regurgitated press release - it's been well-documented that the CoS bought the estate in September 2007 for example, and the reason given for the move is a claim and not a fact - but it's news nonetheless.

    So let's see. It's lain fallow for two years. They don't have permission (yet) to change its zoning to a place of worship. (They must use a different dictionary to mine, as they can't possibly admit that they worship money.)

    "Outgrow" their former premises? Yeah, right. It's a shame the authorities don't have a "Dox or GTFO" culture.

    Peaches Geldof? Yeah, great PR. But if you don't see the media or Internet you don't get the skinny, do you?

    And they haven't started renos yet, but still hope to have it open by July, 4-8 weeks away! This is CofS Ideal Org renos, so I assume it involves gutting the place.

    Needs a flying saucer landing pad on the roof too.

    Doubt it'll open before the end of the year. They've been spouting the same spiel since 2006 at least.

    I rather hope Peaches will be there.

    Rockstar progeny and Brit scenester queen Peaches Geldof makes a cameo in a Reddit forum for "WTF one-night stand stories." A commenter describes an alleged heroin-fueled Thanksgiving Eve sex party—and waking up in the Hollywood Celebrity Scientology Center.

    She'd turn the place into a shooting gallery.

    Bumping to find out if Birmingham moved to their plush renewed mega building, is it empty or has it burned down like so many others.

    I am dying to know, also.

    I couldn't find anything on google about them moving in, I guess they must be still in the old one.

    I went past Birmingham Org the other day. I couldn't find it. Does it have any shop front? Is it just anonymous rooms above a cafe? Has it moved into the vast warehouse out of town? (I doubt that!)

    I went past at about 1.30am not long back, lights were on upstairs. Look for the baguette shop next to cafe rouge on ethel street and it's next to that, the doorway to the right. Next to the pawn shop.

    Oh dear.

    Not a clue what's going on. Probably scrabbling for pennies. The ideal org is open. Gets some use. Doubt it is as packed out as the base star would have us believe.

    I don't believe the Ideal Org is open yet. There is nothing on Scientology.Org or the Brum website to suggest that it is.
