Last September when we reported on Hoaxtead pusher Jim McMenamin, he was on the verge of quitting the entire affair.
However, he couldn’t stay away long.
Perhaps it was the influence of his lovely wife Helen (who we understand now runs a blog of her very own, not that we bother with it), but next thing we knew, Jim was back in the fray, accusing all who took issue with him of being ‘paedo enablers’ etc. You know the drill.
When we caught up with him on Twitter yesterday, he was busily trying to downplay RD’s children’s retractions:
Of course he’s referring to the police videos of the children telling the police how they’d been forced to lie by Abe and their mother. According to Jim, this is far less believable than their original tales of rape, murder, cannibalism, and live babies shipped in by courier. Sure, Jim, whatever you say.
One of his followers questioned him, noting that Ella was found to be lying, and the locations of the alleged abuse did not exist. As @manatrue says, “lots does not add up”.
And besides, didn’t Ella flee the country?
Jim comes back with a zinger. “Her or partner never questioned or suspected”…mmm, suspected? That’s debatable. And they were never questioned because as soon as that possibility raised its ugly head, they hoofed it off to Morocco, then Spain.
Well, never mind. How about this one? “Riot Police turned up at door under anti terror law I think”.
Jim claims the riot police are recorded on YouTube. Really?
Let’s have a look at the pictures of the police gathering in full riot gear outside Ella’s house, then, shall we?
In this excerpt from the interview with Ella’s parents, her mother describes how the police, in full riot gear, gathered around the house. Apparently they used the dread weapons of smiling and smirking sarcastically.
Now, let’s take a look at some police in riot gear, during the 2011 riots:
Yes, we see right away what Jim was talking about. The resemblance is startling, isn’t it?
So…no riot police then. What could account for this strange misunderstanding?
Oh, wait, we think we’ve identified the issue right here:
Jim, you might do better if you relied a bit more on fact and a bit less on Mr Sad and Mr Angry. They’re notoriously unreliable witnesses.
