Just the other day we were lounging about the HR clubhouse, and one of our team asked, “When’s the last time anyone heard from Abe and Ella?” We had to look back over the blog to find the last reference to anything they’d done—they’ve been remarkably quiet over the past several months.
Isn’t it always the way, though: just as we had begun to hope that the unlovely couple had washed their hands of the Hampstead SRA hoax and gone off to deal drugs in Spain, they reared their ugly head again.
This time it’s in the form of a fundraising platform called Generosity, an offshoot of Indiegogo, where they’ve launched a fundraising campaign in Ella’s name. They’ve wisely kept Abe’s name out of it—even amongst those who believe their bollox, Abe is not Captain Popularity.
They have made use of this new platform to retell their ludicrous lies about Hoaxtead. In addition to the core fantasy (you know, the special rooms that didn’t exist, the sexual abuse that didn’t happen, the cult activities that Abe dredged up from his own sick imagination, etc.) they’ve tried to make out that Abe and Ella rushed back to the UK to tell the police (not true—Jean Clement reported the case, which wasn’t in the plan at all); that they bravely returned to “save the other children” (bollox); and much, much more!
We admit we were amused at their description of how the videos of the children were illegally leaked online in early February 2015:
We’re sure Sabine will be delighted to hear that she’s now a government agent; perhaps they’ll pay a bit better than Belinda does. And we hear they have a nice retirement package, which we’re sure she’ll be able to use.
But most of all, we are amused at the huge groundswell of support that has swept the troofer community as a result of Ella’s (and that short guy’s) heartfelt appeal:
That’s right! In the 12 days since this was posted, Ella and Abe have raked in a grand total of US$50! This is despite the site having been shared on Facebook nine whole times—can’t you just feel the enthusiasm?
News flash to Abe and Ella: your constituency has moved on to other things. Oh, Angie is still bleating on about Hoaxtead, but no one likes or trusts her any more than they like or trust Abe; and of course there’s the inimitable team of the mentally lax Kristie Sue Costa and her lantern-jawed sidekick Sonya Van Gelder, but they’re too busy pimping for Pizzagate to really be much use to you.
A spate of arrests last autumn left many would-be hoax promoters feeling…less enthusiastic about pretending that a child-raping, baby-eating cult dwells in secret rooms in a community they imagine to be much better than where they live. Fun’s fun, as they say, but when one is facing down the barrel of a jail sentence, one’s priorities tend to fall into place.
We do wonder what must be happening in Abe and Ella’s little world, to prompt them to try to crank up the old Hoaxtead fairy tale again. Living in Spain (with forays into Morocco for supplies) is definitely cheaper than trying to make ends meet in the UK, but it’s not free. Has Ella’s first husband finally decided to cut her allowance off? Are the “nutritional seminars” and “face yoga” classes not raking in as much moolah as anticipated? Have cannabis prices tanked in Spain? So many possibilities to ponder.
While the goal of the Generosity campaign claims to be to “securing freedom” of RD’s two children (though not the 20 allegedly “special” children, but really, who gives a toss about them?), even Abe and Ella cannot be delusional enough to actually believe that they have a snowball’s chance in hell of regaining custody of the children they tortured into making false allegations.
No, this is about making money, plain and simple. They are banking on the possibility that a few feeble-minded individuals will open their wallets and fork over a bit of cash, without asking too many awkward questions. So far, though, the numbers aren’t looking promising.
