Watching yesterday’s live edition of Angela Scratches, we weren’t terribly surprised at Angie’s attempts to defend what remains of her credibility as de facto spokes-thingy for the Hoaxtead mob. Her “more in sorrow than in anger” performance piece about having been betrayed by those she thought were her friends was completely predictable.
What we didn’t see coming, though, was Angie’s allegation that she has come into possession of evidence that Ella Draper was involved in manufacturing and distributing commercial child sex abuse images.
Given the abysmal sound quality of the, er, ‘broadcast’, we were not quite certain at first that we’d heard her correctly.
But yes, it seems that Angela is now claiming that the sainted Ella, mother of RD’s children and alleged victim of the Hoaxtead myth, made videos of a sexual nature involving children. She was given this evidence, she claims, by some mysterious hackers who uncovered it.
And apparently she no longer believes that Ella is the innocent victim and Abe the moustache-twirling baddy of the piece. In fact, Angela has now twisted the narrative so that Abe is merely the innocent victim of Evil Ella’s machinations. He came on the scene, you see, and realised that his lady-love’s children were in desperate need of his help, and so he beat them to a bloody pulp…
Oh, wait. No, forget that last bit.
According to Angela’s latest, Abe’s slimy reputation has now been completely rehabilitated, and he’s no longer “suspect” in her mind. (You might recall that at one point, Angie was accusing Abe of having been “in the cult”.)
If your head is spinning here, you’re not the only one.
What does all this mean?
The first question, of course, is “Is it true?”
Bearing in mind that we are talking about Angela here, our guess would be that if there’s even a small element of truth in it, it will have been massaged, twisted, stretched, and embroidered beyond recognition. So…probably not, or at least not as stated.
The second question is, “Why now?”
Commenter Joe Kerr made this sage observation:
There is to my certain knowledge a credible line of enquiry that associates Christie (and by association Draper) with porn. But it’s a paper/money trail that is being followed. Obviously Angie’s got wind of this and has decided to embroider it. – I don’t know why though unless she’s looking for an out; because IF (big if!) such a thing exists it ties A&E directly into paedophilia, and therefore tends to corroborate the fact that the original videos were an out-and-out hoax!
We do wonder whether this new revelation means Angela is looking for a way out at this point: her brilliant plan to bring Rupert over from the States to revive Hoaxtead’s failing fortunes has backfired horribly, creating a giant schism amongst her supporters, and calling her own actions and motivations into question.
She’s looking tired…no, make that haggard, in her videos; she’s lost much of the posh accent she has used in most of her efforts to date, and reverted to her mother’s West Country tones…a clear sign of stress. She has been paying to keep the spotlight on herself via Mel Ve’s very questionable ‘network’ (read: YouTube channel), but the money is quickly running out.
What better way to excuse herself from Hoaxtead than by suddenly ‘discovering’ that Ella was a secret child pornographer all along? As Joe points out, if any video evidence of this allegation actually does exist, it means that even the most hardened Hoaxtead supporter must acknowledge that Abe and Ella are no better than comm0n-or-garden child-abusing paedophiles, and that the original videos were in fact faked.
Of course, if this alleged evidence does exist, and Angela has downloaded it, she now has some very serious thinking to do. The responsible thing for Angie to do is to turn any such evidence over to the police immediately.
Wait, did we just say “responsible” and “Angie” in the same sentence? Bwahahahahaha! What were we thinking?
She won’t do that.
In fact, it’s far more likely that she’ll milk it for all the attention it’s worth, casually toss both Abe and Ella under the next passing bus, and explain that she’s far, far too triggered by the video’s content to actually do anything about it, so could her friends possibly see their way clear to funding her for a new computer?
Just a guess, of course.
