Remove an iCal event without sending updates?

So... I have a thorny question that nobody seems to have an answer to.


I use my Mac at work (as well as at home).


I have 2 calendars- 'Work' is connected to my Exchange account. 'Home' is synced through iCloud.


For some inexplicable reason, when I get a repeating meeting invite from a customer (who is using Google calendar in their company) to my work Exchange mail account the invite goes a bit nuts. Basically the invite goes into my 'Home' calendar and sets me as the meeting organiser!


So... now I have a meeting invite, that I cannot remove, in the wrong calendar.

If I remove it it threatens to send out meeting cancellations to all (20!) of the attendees! Needless to say I will not be in a good place if that happens!


So my challenge to you all- how on earth do I hack this meeting invite out of my iCloud calendar?


From searching around there seems to have been an application, called iCalpone, that could do this, but it is no longer available.


There is also but that appears not to work for iCloud calendars.

    I have the same problem but with a different source.  I keep having invites reappear after the meeting has occurred.  So now I have an invite where the only responses are maybe/decline/accept ... all of which send an email to the client AFTER the meeting has already taken place.


    Why can't I just delete an invite without iCal FORCING the email acknowledge of some kind.  Why do other people have so much control over my calendar app?
