Lately we’ve been hearing bellowing and pawing at the ground from Abe/Drifloud (echoed by his faithful lapdog Jim McMenamin) that they have PROOF! PROOF, do you hear us? that RD’s children were lying when they told the police that Abe, and not their father, had abused them.
This ‘proof’, Abe/Drifloud alleges, comes in the form of notes made by the foster carer who looked after the children when they were first removed from Ella’s care (because she could not protect them from Abe).
Here’s a screenshot from Abrella’s late and very unlamented blog, alleging the same thing:
The carer’s notes, Abe/Drippy alleges, were given to the police on 30th September, 2014, nearly two weeks after the children retracted the story they’d originally told the police, and said that Abe and their mother had forced them to say it all.
In fact, they made this date discrepancy the basis of part of their legal objection to the outcome of the fact-finding hearing:
We find this confusion, well, confusing. The whole thing looks pretty straightforward to us. So why would Drippy Abe think he could get away with fudging the dates, when they’re right there in the police and court documents that Sabine so helpfully (and illegally) posted?
One possibility, of course, is that he and Ella assumed that none of their supporters would check their claims. Silly, silly people.
(On a side note, one of the louder and more obnoxious commenters on Abrella’s ex-blog was very firm in his assertion that the foster carer’s notes would never have been given to Ella as part of her court bundle; on this basis, he alleged that they must be counterfeit. We consulted a legal expert, who assured us that in fact, the carer’s notes would absolutely be a part of the bundle. So much for The Prat’s assertions.)
So the carer’s notes themselves aren’t counterfeit…but the allegation that they were made in the period after the retraction interviews is just so much smoke and mirrors.
