Did anyone else find it peculiar that during the past couple of days’ drama—three arrests, Angie’s former friends turning on her, and all the drama emanating from her direction—one of the most vocal members of the Hoaxtead mob remained as silent as the proverbial church mouse?
Given all the mad goings on, we expected to hear Sabine shrieking, “It’s all just too MUCH!” in her unmistakeable Teutonic tones at least once.
At first we wondered whether she’d been arrested too, and no one had thought to inform us. Then we found her Twitter page, and all became clear. In fact, Sabine had blown off her Hoaxtead friends in favour of rather richer fare:
Yes, Sabine had indeed left the building. While her Hoaxtead friends were busy being arrested and eating microwaved grub, Sabine was at the Kensington Close Hotel, hobnobbing with ‘C-levels’ and “100 Chief Data Scientists and senior-level leaders from the data science world“. As one does.
We must admit we were impressed, especially when we saw the conference price-tag:
And this from a woman who has been bleating piteously about her dire financial situation for months now? Certainly, we know that Belinda pays her a monthly stipend, but even at that, £1,395 seems a bit pricey for someone in Sabine’s situation.
If we didn’t know better, we’d wonder whether Sabine has finally seen the light, tossed the Hoaxtead hot potato to Angie’s willing hands, and gone off to re-invent herself as an actual, honest-to-goodness data scientist.
We were surprised, too, at Sabine’s delight with some of the conference’s more, er, mainstream speakers:
Surely some mistake?
Is Sabine really applauding representatives from a global health insurance corporation and an American bank holding company with a speciality in credit cards, home loans, auto loans, banking and savings products? Is this the same Sabine who’s been advocating a fundamental overhaul of the financial system, and claiming that personal debt is a crime of the state?
We are stunned, and can only shake our heads in wonder.
And we have to ask: Will Sabine even bother to show up at Saturday’s protest to bang the drum with her old SRA pals? Or will she be having tea with Mark Carney and discussing interest rates? The mind boggles.
