Following Monday’s shocking allegation that she and Rupert Quaintance had viewed irrefutable evidence that Ella Draper had participated in making a child sexual abuse video, Angela Power-Disney has been desperately trying to hang onto her rapidly fracturing group of followers.
For anyone who’s followed Angela’s antics over the past year and a half, though, Monday’s allegations really represent a natural progression for her. Angela has never had the slightest qualms about tossing people—friends, lovers, co-Hoaxtead promoters—under any passing vehicle, if it suits her purposes.
Our friends at CCN Exposed have illustrated this rather nicely in this video, we think:
Late last winter, Angela turned on Abe and Ella, claiming that not only were they “not telling us everything”, but that they were involved in the alleged cult. Claiming it had been Rupert’s idea which she had “prayed over”, Angie stated that Abe and Ella had used the children’s disclosures to “escape the cult”—effectively sowing seeds of doubt and claiming the Hoaxtead narrative for her own.
And some will recall her speaking with Sabine about her then-pending trial for witness intimidation. In a private Skype conversation, she prompted Sabine to discuss her legal strategy…and then Angie published the video.
Angela wants to own the narrative
There’s been little doubt over the past few months that Angela has wrested control of the Hoaxtead narrative out of Belinda’s clutches. Belinda, forced to take a back seat by an inconvenient injunction placed on her last summer, has been unable to play a full leadership role in Hoaxtead, and Angie, sensing weakness, has slid in to fill the power vacuum.
She has repeatedly demonstrated her newfound power by publicising damaging secrets shared in confidence, turning on those whose power she wants to usurp, using mentally unstable people as her hand puppets, and now, creating new narratives that turn Hoaxteaders’ opinion against the very people who started the hoax in the first place.
Angela never really cared for Abe’s jealous guarding of the hoax he and Ella had created, and as soon as she saw an opening last winter, she took it. She announced publicly, and then in a series of private communications, that she felt Abe was very much “in the cult”; he “knew too much” about the details and forms of cult activity, which immediately made him “suspect”.
One of our commenters noted yesterday that they’d heard a suggestion that Angela now suspects that Sophia Green is Ella Draper in sock puppet form. If it’s true that this is what she thinks, it makes perfect sense for her to suddenly do an about-face on Ella, as well, turning her from ‘poor abused mother’ to ‘partially compromised but still salvageable cult member’ to ‘fully-fledged child sexual abuse video producer’.
This latest revelation, shocking as it is, was calculated to bring Angela even more firmly into power, to assert her authority over her scattering flock, and to ensure that people would now look only to her for the “truth” about Hoaxtead.
Sadly for Angie, however, it has backfired horribly. Even the most gullible and malleable of her followers (Jim McMenamin, we’re looking at you) has raised serious questions about this new allegation: is it true? Is she sure? How sure? If it’s true, how long has Angie known about it? Why has she not been shouting it from the rooftops since she learned about it?
Very good questions, and ones which should have been asked “at first whistle”, as Jim says, when the Hampstead SRA hoax was in its infancy.
What will Angela’s next move be, if her goal is to consolidate her power at the top of the Hoaxtead pile? We imagine she’ll be doing a great deal of wheeling and dealing this month at the London demonstration against child sexual abuse, where she’ll be looking for fresh new recruits and an audience that isn’t already familiar with her shenanigans.
After all, what’s the point of being Queen of Hoaxtead if all your subjects have buggered off to do other things?
