A few days ago we wrote about the strange—unprecedented, really—online silence of Abe and Ella. Anna, one of our regular readers, speculated that they might have finally got tired of one another:
And Dave, another long-time reader, pointed out that Abe and Ella hadn’t even bothered to try to refute Angela Fag Ash Disney’s astonishing (and completely made up) allegation that Ella had been involved in creating and distributing commercial child sexual abuse videos. As Dave suggests, it does seem as though they’ve finally given up. Their last big weapon was to have been the IPCC investigation of the 2014 police investigation, but that fell flat: it showed that the police had done their jobs properly in all but two relatively minor instances.
So really, why bother at this point?
And yet…perhaps appropriately enough, it turns out that on Hallowe’en, Ella chose to post a new profile picture on her Facebook account. She hardly looks the part of the grieving mother, who fears that her two…no, wait, make that three precious children are in the grip of a terrifying cult that rapes children, murders babies, eats them, and makes slippers from their skins.
In fact, she looks like she’s having rather a good time, perhaps back from a day’s shopping at the nearest souk? Or perhaps arriving in Morocco for a bit of a vacation with Abe? Hard to say, really. We can only speculate.
But for the few remaining people who claim that Ella is pining for her children, that she’s a good and caring mother who only ran away to another country so she could fight for her kids from outside prison…take a good look at this picture. We mean a really good look.
And then ask yourself: if she’s such a paragon of motherhood, why has she gone silent?
