Over the past few days, things have been flying apart in the Hoaxtead camp faster than we can track them! It started with Jake Clarke’s involuntary hospitalisation and Sabine’s arrest on suspicion of having violated her restraining order, and it’s been descending into utter chaos ever since.
Angie and Rupert look as though their joined-at-the-hip star is no longer ascending; stalwarts like Jim and Helen McMenamin are jumping, or have jumped, ship; and even the brick-skulled Kevin Weaver, aka Kevin Wearechange, aka Kevin Justice, aka Kevin ILostMySurnamePleaseLetMeKnowIfYouFindIt seems to have struck Rupert off his Christmas card list.
If we had to assign credit for this shambles, we’d have to say it’s down to a Hoaxtead pusher we’ve never seen before—one Sophia Green, who seems to have popped up out of nowhere, and begun hammering away like a demented woodpecker at Rupert and Angie, via Jake Clarke’s Facebook page.
The first we saw of her, Sophia was lecturing Rupert:
It’s a bit confusing to follow, but you need to read the above screenshot from the bottom up: Sophie tells Rupert, “Many of us have worked long and hard trying to bring justice to this case Rupert…. and in a few months you guys have managed to make a complete mockery out of it….You are no different to Christine Ann Sands, sent in to cause chaos and confusion….Every Dog has their day, and all of you agents WILL be exposed”.
Needless to say, Rupert deleted this post; and he deleted a long string of posts in which Sophia challenged Rupert’s gun-totin’ Mom to explain their family’s connection to a strange, secretive child-abusing cult known as ‘the Finders’. Mrs Quaintance denied any knowledge of the group, though she had previously mentioned some family connection to a person with the surname Pettie—oddly, the founder of the Finders was a man named Marion D. Pettie.
Sophia’s point, and it might be a valid one, is that it seems strange that Rupert has come all the way to the UK to ‘investigate’ child sexual abuse cults, when his own town is home to one of the strangest and most mysterious alleged child abuse cults ever known. Mrs Quaintance wasn’t having any though, and eventually Rupert deleted all his mother’s responses, leaving only Sophia’s side of the conversation. Odd.
Nothing daunted, Sophia kept at it, launching a full frontal attack on Rupert and Angie:
Of course, you have to expect that Angie wouldn’t take this lying down:
Angela accused Sophia of being “rude and suspect” (‘suspect’ being Angela’s second-favourite condemning adjective, right after the dreaded ‘compromised’). Interestingly, at this point Sophia calls Angie a “paid MK’d actor…and not very good…at that”. Angela tries to deflect—”Nice try no cigar”—and at this point Kristen Elizabeth jumps in, branding Sophia a troll. (You might recall Kristen: she was Jacqui Farmer/Charlotte Alton Ward‘s self-appointed Twitter mouthpiece for a few months last year.)
But Kristen was too late: Sophia’s attack had done its damage, and suddenly giant rifts began showing up within the Hoaxtead mob: Kevin Whatever-He’s-Calling-Himself-This-Week chimed in, stating that he had been roped into a meeting with Angie, Rupert, Sabine, and a couple of others. He seemed less than impressed with the experience, and he seemed annoyed that Rupert had filmed the meeting without his permission. And now that Sophie mentions it, Kevin says, “People are saying that Rupert and Angie are agents and I’ve only met them once and it wasn’t obvious they are agents if they are….I guess the point I’m making is who do we trust in the movement as no one knows anymore but I will just be careful from now on. I will carry on helping people that need my help but won’t be going to anymore meetings without knowing who’s there”.
Hardly a ringing endorsement for Rupert and Angela, is it?
Poor Kevin seems downright confused by it all: who should he trust? He “won’t be going to anymore anonymous meetings that’s for sure I just try to help but sometimes I just have to say no and take a back seat as its a circus”. Can’t argue with him there!
Kevin was only the beginning, though: Speaking of creating division and confusion, we must take our hats off to Sophia: she really seems to have whipped the Hoaxtead mob into a frenzy of doubt and anxiety:
Even the stalwart Tim Veater, tuches lecher extraordinaire to the Hoaxtead leadership, is willing to set aside his knee-jerk admiration for Angela at the news that Rupert and Charlie Veitch are best pals. Helen McMenamin isn’t impressed either:
And most surprising of all, Angela’s devoted friend Jockney Rebel seems to be coming round to Sophia’s way of thinking. Actually, now that Sophia mentions it, JR remembers that she actually thinks Rupert is a bit of a ponce. Well, a lot of a ponce, really.
So…go, Sophia! Mission accomplished: it seems the majority of those who commented on this thread have had the scales drop from their eyes. They realise that Rupert and Angie are not doing their cause any favours, and they now have some hard questions to ask about their motivations.
Having done a hatchet job on Rupert’s reputation (noting everything from the cult in his home town, to the fact that his father works for the equivalent of GCHQ), Sophia remarks that she has not yet gone into detail on Angie…implying that there’ll be more to come.
Who is Sophia Green?
Not to look a gift turkey in the beak, we have a few questions about Sophia, who seems to have opened her Facebook page a scant four days ago.
For one thing, where did she come from? For someone so new to the Hoaxtead discussion, she seems to know an awful lot about the case. Names and personal details about all the players; even some of the ‘facts’ as reported by Abe, such as the alleged medical kits carried by the cops who came to arrest Ella the day she fled the country.
In fact, Sophia is quite opinionated, with strong views on many of the major Hoaxtead pushers. Hates Sabine, but thinks Neelu is a brave heroine. Thinks Bill Maloney and Brian Gerrish are shills. (Where have we heard this before?)
Whoever Sophie might be, she’s determined to lay waste to Rupert and Angie’s flying circus…and if she’s as intimately connected to Hoaxtead as we suspect she is, we can understand why. Rupert and Angela have turned the thing into one long ongoing fundraiser for a ‘documentary’ that will do nothing but highlight their own egos. And for those who are determined to keep the Hampstead hoax alive, that’s the kiss of death.
