It’s been quiet days chez the Hampstead SRA hoax of late, and we think we know the reason: the Hoaxtead mobsters are too busy taking potshots at one another to really focus much on harassing and defaming the people of Hampstead.
It started last month with the mysterious Sophia Green, who took it upon herself to point a bony finger and scream, “J’accuse!” at Angela and Rupert. This brought the house of cards tumbling down, as sides were taken, and a gaping schism in the Hoaxtead infrastructure was revealed.
Then, of course, there was Angela’s, ahem, ‘blockbuster’ announcement: she stated that a person (who sounds an awful lot like her old friend Tracey Morris) had shown her and Rupert incontrovertible evidence that Ella Draper had participated in making child pornography—sexually abusing a child on video, presumably for profit.
This was a stupid risk on Angela’s part: she was counting on this injection of further horrific detail to revive the hoax, but it had the opposite effect. If bringing Rupert to London hadn’t already dropped a neutron bomb on the hoax, this announcement did the trick: it was a step too far, even for the looniest of the Hoaxtead mobsters.
And suddenly, the remaining loyalists were lining up to decry Angie as a traitor.
In the midst of it all, Christian evangeloon Kristie Sue Costa, publisher of the execrable Dearman Does Hampstead blog, emerged as the new de facto leader of the Abe and Ella Purist sect. She now has effective control of the famed Sooper Seekrit Facebook Groop™, where she and her fellow nutters have been desperately attempting to plot the comeback of the hoax.
On the Kristie Sue side, you’ll find such luminaries as Jim ‘Any Way the Wind Blows’ McMenamin and his unlovely bride Helen; ‘forensic linguist’ Olu Essien Popoola; Black Hebrew supremacist Desmond During; certifiable lunatic Kane Slater; and alleged stuntman and death threat purveyor, John Taylor.
We’re not really talking the crème de la crème here, but we suppose one takes what one can get.
Meanwhile, Angie is now playing the role of a demented, nicotine-soaked heretic, attempting to rally her bedraggled followers to her version of the cause. She’s supported by the Canadian Kristen Elizabeth, Fart-Sniffer-in-Chief to the late and not at all lamented Jacqui Farmer, aka Charlotte Alton Ward, who led her own attempted (and failed) coup last winter. Oh, and apparently John Duane thinks Angie is the bee’s knees as well. For whatever that‘s worth.
Angie and Kristie Sue have now resorted to slinging insults back and forth, each blaming the other for the collapse of the hoax. From her lair in Lanzarote, Angie posted:
At first we thought she was aiming this one at us, but apparently we were too hasty; it seems she had another target in mind.
Jezebel…that is, Kristie Sue fired back a few hours later:
To prove her point, she shared a Twitter post from Kristen Elizabeth to Kane Slater (who was banned from Twitter shortly after this exchange, oddly enough):
And Kristie Sue was none too pleased with Angie for calling Ella’s parents into question, either:
“In your video with subtitles on…you question the grandparents,” Kristie Sue complains. “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED INDEED!” From your lips to God’s ears, Kristie Sue.
Amusing as we find all of this, we think our commenter Mik has the right idea:
Mel and Biggi would be utter fools to let a chance like this slip through their grubby little fingers. It’s time for handbags at dawn—we know we’d line up to watch!
