Didn't LE used to publicise his engagements ahead of time so people could meet up with him and so on? I guess the reason he kept this engagement a secret was in case his reputation preceded him and he was excluded from the meeting.
He’s very unpopular in the UK especially amongst the more high profile exJWs. Back in summer he announced he was coming (wording!!!) and only one couple agreed to take a selfie with him.
I also think he’s intentionally avoiding Jill Adams because he doesn’t have anyone willing to store his unsold books for him.
It’s the new normal for him. He has to sneak his way into events for photo-ops. He needs to keep hushed on his plans lest someone catch wind of it and let the hosts know that hooker-boy is coming.
Oh my should I re-word that.
