Thanks to commenter YdychyncachuTracey for letting us know that our old friend Tracey Morris is back in business, this time looking for donations with the help of her friend Kristen Elizabeth Patterson. (You might recall Kristen—she’s the Canadian woman who took on the task of Twitter manager for Charlotte Alton Ward’s pig’s toilet of a blog, before Charlotte gave up and went back to searching for magic mushrooms in Suriname.)
We first encountered Tracey last summer, when she was living in Belinda’s basement and accompanying her to the Royal Courts of Justice to harass RD on a daily basis.
Tracey had a set of lungs to rival Christine Ann Sands’, and was in the habit of saying even-handed, well-considered things like, “Rxxxx Dxxxxxx gets those kids over my dead body….I don’t care if he skips the country we will hunt him down”.
Eventually both she and Belinda were issued with injunctions:
She did the usual amount of posturing and shouting that no stupid injunction was going to shut her up, and then she slunk off quietly to…well, we weren’t sure where she’d slunk off to, but at least she stopped claiming that RD should have been dealt with by the Russian mafia.
And now she’s back.
This time, though, she seems to be allowing Kristen to collect money for her, so she can run a ‘charity’ called Civil Rights Defenders.
Now, there really is a respected NGO (non-governmental organisation) called Civil Rights Defenders: it’s based in Sweden, and originated as part of the Helsinki Movement in the 1970s. However, we’re quite certain that Tracey Morris has nothing to do with that organisation.
Rather, she seems to be (as YdychyncachuTracey says) trying to raise funds for her own ‘charity’, which seems to involve rushing about the countryside and poking her nose into other people’s business. She does have a history, and according to a commenter on one of Sabine’s blogs last summer, she doesn’t always come out smelling of roses:
Like her friends Belinda and Sabine, Tracey seems more interested in making lots of noise and achieving lots of profile for herself and her causes than with actually doing anyone any good.
Of course, she could always prove us wrong with her latest venture…but we’re not holding our breath.
