We were clearing out some old desk drawers yesterday, when we happened upon one of those scraps of information that make you go, “Hmm”. In this case, it’s something we clipped from Twitter last summer, without really knowing how it might fit into the Hampstead SRA timeline, but suspecting that we might have a use for it one day.
Here’s what we found: We originally found this on Twitter on 1 August 2016. In this tweet, “Free the hampstead 2” (aka Abraham Christie) is responding to a tweet from his bestie, Drifloud, who has mentioned an email that Abe sent to Brian Gerrish on 11 September 2014, the night RD’s children were taken into protective custody. Drifloud describes that email as a “cry for help”:
If it’s a “cry for help”, it’s a strange one. All it does is lay out the bare bones of the hoax:
Ritual satanic child abuse and sacrifice cult, serial murdering and blood drinking
Main action is happening in Christchurch primary school in Hampstead, London….
The baby sexual abuse and sacrifices are going on Tuesday, Wednesday (big sex day), Thursday
There are 4 secret rooms in the church where they perform rituals
They first sexually abuse babies (torture, hurting them too), then inject to put them to sleep, slit their throat, drain and drink blood, roast or fry the baby’s meat and eat.
School staff and parents, priest, other involved are doing sex to boys bottoms and girls front privates and bottoms with large plastic willies.
Adults force children to do oral sex.
Babies are supplied regularly for the rituals, abused, tortured with rat traps, dropped on the floor (often bleed), then killed. They put them to sleep by injections, slit baby’s throat, drain blood, then drink the blood and then cook the body by either roasting or frying. The meat is eaten by the leader…teachers, 20 special children and their parents.
Ritual involves special costumes children wear 10-13 babies skulls (sometimes with blood and hair still on the skull), adults – 20, -on their bodies, leader -30 skulls. Everybody has skulls worn around the neck, (4), on breast, front private, belly, knees, arms. All wear shoes made of baby skin….
Babies are supplied from all over the world. They buy them, inject and send by TNT, DHL services. …
Baby sacrifice, blood drinking, dancing with the Baby’s skulls happen in the church on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Main day is Wednesday, ritual…. (all sic) [All sick, shurely —Ed.]
This does not read as though it’s Abe’s first attempt to contact Gerrish. There’s no greeting, no introduction, no explanation of what he wants. It’s more like a laying out of his wares for inspection: he’s telling Gerrish what he can deliver, if Gerrish picks up this story.
Where does Finnbarr fit in?
We know from the Finnbarr recording that Finnbarr Hagan was with Abe, Ella, and RD’s children in London on 8 September, where he interviewed both children about the abuse they alleged they’d suffered. And Abe’s pairing of Finnbarr with Gerrish in the tweet we rediscovered yesterday indicates that our suspicions were correct: this adds plausibility to the idea that Gerrish had sent Finnbarr to check out the children’s story and determine whether it was worth supporting.
It seems like the perfect fit for Gerrish’s UK Column: blood, gore, sex, child abuse, Satanists, pretty children….what more could he want? And yet…he turned it down.
So why did Gerrish turn his nose up at the hoax?
One clue, we think, might come from an unexpected source: The Great Wiggy Herself, Danielle La Verité.
At about 2:55 in this video, she states,
DLV: Now the UK Column, when Ella went to the UK Column, they offered her full protection for those children. And Brian Gerrish and the other people at the Column…
Richie Allen: When you say he offered full protection now, you know I have a lot of time for the UK Column, but how could Brian Gerrish protect anybody?
DLV: Well, in the sense that what they were going to do was release the videos without the children’s faces being seen…
Richie Allen: Right, I’m with you.
DLV: Yes, so the children had protection, which they should have had, because now these children will spend the rest of their lives being the two kids from the internet that talked about ritualistic child abuse. Their lives could be ruined because of this, regardless of…this is…it’s child abuse continued, as far as I’m concerned.
So putting two and two together, it seems that the UK Column made Abe and Ella an offer: Gerrish would publicise their hoax and stand behind it, if they would give him what would amount to a degree of editorial control. They would have to play things his way—no showing the children’s faces, no identifying them online.
As we know, Abe has always clung to editorial control as if it’s the last lifeboat on the Titanic. The chances of him accepting a deal like this were approximately nil.
Add to this the fact that when Finnbarr reported back to Gerrish on his trip to visit Abe and Ella in London, he would have mentioned Abe’s panic when he discovered that the police officer assigned to investigate the hoax was the same one who’d investigated his assault on his own teen-aged son. And Finnbarr would also have reported that Abe and Ella were making serious noises about fleeing the country.
So despite the juiciness of the story, Gerrish seems to have taken stock of Abe’s inflexibility and determination to control the thing himself, Abe and Ella’s feeling that they ought to get the heck out of Dodge before the police caught up with them, and Abe’s worry that he would be correctly identified as a serial child abuser. Given all of this, it’s no wonder that Gerrish gave the whole seething mess a very wide berth.
Of course he would go back on that later, once the videos were already out in the public sphere, but by then no one could have blamed him for releasing them—and besides the story was a gold mine for the troofer community for several months.
