Earlier this week, we noted with some amusement that Charlotte Ward Alton had put up a link from her Hamster Research blog to an article on The Needle blog, outlining the moral dilemma involved in paedophile hunting. The piece was reblogged without comment; one might be forgiven for thinking that Charlotte agreed with it.
Putting aside the hilarity of Charlotte’s actually linking to a post that makes sense, and the probability that she wouldn’t know a moral dilemma, never mind a moral, if it leapt up and bit her in her scrawny arse, we were amused by the irony of it all. You see, from the beginning, when it comes to the issue of Hoaxtead, The Needle has repeatedly come down firmly on the side of the truth.
The blog’s first piece on the Hampstead ‘satanic cult abuse’ hoax appeared March 19, the day Mrs Justice Pauffley handed down her fact-finding judgement:
That’s pretty unequivocal. Surprising that Charlotte seems to have missed it.
Oh, all right. We’re being sarcastic. It’s not surprising at all, really.
Following that post, The Needle’s author, GoJam, went on: ‘Three Wanted in Hampstead Harassment Case‘ came out on 26 March.
‘If I’m honest, I can see only one thing that remotely resembles a “cult” and that is the slavish, brainwashed, and irresponsible following online of those that refuse to accept that they’ve been hoodwinked’.
We know Charlotte is dense and can’t take a hint to save her soul, but we’re really not feeling the Hoaxtead love here.
On 27 March, GoJam published a piece on Belinda and Sabine’s dodgy paedophile connections: Hampstead, McKenzie Friends and Terence Ewing. In the 11 April piece titled Hampstead Satanic Hoax: Justice Pauffley is Wrong!, GoJam took issue with Justice Pauffley’s observation that those who perpetuated the hoax online were ‘evil and/or foolish’. Instead, he noted, a substantial proportion of them are also mentally unbalanced.
And most recently, on 21 April, he took issue with ‘Jacqui Farmer’ (now known to be Charlotte Ward Alton) and her ludicrous attempt to ‘prove’ that Ricky Dearman was dealing in commercial child sex abuse images. We’ve said the same thing (repeatedly) about Charlotte’s ham-fisted and technologically stupid attempts to ‘prove’ that various people (besides herself) have viewed and dealt in child pornography.
So we’re really not sure why Charlotte would have any reason to think that The Needle blog or its author are somehow friendly to her interests. Besides her innate dim-wittedness, that is.
