We’ve noted before that Angela Power-Disney is not exactly popular amongst her extended family, at least in part due to a long-standing feud involving her belief that she was cheated out of her share of her father’s inheritance. But it seems Angie has managed to create further, even more divisive issues within her family—issues that have a very familiar ring to them.
We all know about Angie’s fascination, nay, obsession with trauma and victimisation, and her insistence that she was not only traumatised and victimised as a child, but that she carries a larger trauma/victimisation burden than anyone else on the planet.
And we’re also all too familiar with her compulsion to, as she would say, “blurt”—by which she means “divulge other people’s private and confidential information, even when to do so could cause them damage”. She’s done it to Rupert, she’s done it to Sabine, and now, it seems, she’s done it to a member of her own family.
We want to be as circumspect as possible here, as we have no wish to compound Angela’s actions. So even though the person involved in this issue forfeited her right to anonymity during the legal process some time ago, we are redacting her name, her relationship to Angela, and any potential identifying factors. Nor will we link this material to its source, as the person involved has clearly stated that she alone has the right to disclose it.
But here’s the beginning of a rather long post that Angela chose to post publicly, several years ago:
As you can see, it’s coverage of a child sexual abuse case, in which a member of Angela’s family was the victim. Again, this is only the first 20% or so of the original; but you can see that at the bottom, Angela has added a parenthetical note (underlined).
We’ve skipped most of the post, again for reasons of confidentiality. However, the final paragraph says a great deal, we believe:
So Angela is now a fully qualified psychologist, who gets to decide the impact of sexual abuse on her relative? And we’re sure her family really appreciates her dragging their private business into the public spotlight.
The victim in the case responded to this post in mid-October 2016: Reading these comments, it becomes clear that Angela’s annotations to the original were intended to flag Biggi Boho, who Angela says is “building my website and I tagged him in all my notes for archives on my website”.
Her relative, however, clearly states, “Biggi Boho does not have permission to use any of the above stuff. Sorry but I have forgiven my family including my abuser. Something that you should try Angela. It’s called being a true christian (sic). Not living in past but actually living today that God has given. The fact that you have such bitterness and want to destroy very people you say you love, must at some point be a flag to you in your life. You can’t serve 2 masters”.
Angela lashes back—at this person whose story she has appropriated, and for whom she claims to have utmost sympathy— with “And you are ABUSING Christianity to justify your own coverup and denial”. Later, she says, “You’re talking shit and I’m ongoingly disappointed”.
So basically, Angela is saying that not only is she entitled to share her relative’s story at will, and to use it as part of her blog, but she gets to say whether her relative’s reaction to that is appropriate…and whether God would approve.
Nice, Angie. Really nice.
It’s getting more and more clear why no one in your own family can stand you.
