As Mr Coyote sets out on his summer holiday, we thought we’d leave you with happy thoughts to tide you over until his return.
Apparently we have seriously pissed Belinda off.
Remember when we wrote about Peter Hofschröer absconding from Belinda’s house after he received a call to report to the police station for deportation? In our report, we gently suggested that it might not have been a totally fab idea to house a convicted paedophile within a 10-minute walk of a popular children’s playground. In fact, we pointed out, a child had been sexually assaulted in that very playground, three days after Mr Hofschröer made himself scarce.
While we think it very unlikely that he was the culprit in this instance, we noted that if he had been the party involved in attacking the little girl, Belinda would bear at least some of the responsibility.
Turns out that this observation did not escape Belinda’s notice. She recently wrote:
(T)hose pathetic faceless types on the Hoaxtead site with nothing better to do than watch what you and I and Sabine are up to in the hopes of finding something they can ridicule! tried to insinuate it could have been my then house-guest Peter Hofschroer wandering around in the bushes up there, but sorry they were way out as he left my house to be extradited on 6th July and this incident happened on 9th. Well, they probably did know so could only insinuate and hope their vast readership would make the connection – how many followers does H-tead have I wonder? 18? 20? Or am I 2 years out of date?
First things first: Belinda is now claiming that Mr Hofschröer left her house “to be extradited” on the 6th? Funnily enough that is not the story she told at the time.
Here’s what she said then:
We’d just heard that very morning that Peter was wanted at 3 p.m. at Kentish Town police station, in order to be taken to Heathrow…But he never went and 2 days later he’s still somewhere in UK, neither the police nor anybody knows where he is….
...The latest turn of events in the saga, that Peter has now gone missing would be worrying, but I do know he has many friends and supporters all over the place of whom I’m not aware, so I am not overly concerned for his safety and wellbeing. I was told by the tagging company it is very easy to remove the tag around a bailee’s leg, so he will not be that easy to track down… According to another person currently staying under my roof he walked off with virtually nothing visible on him apart from the clothes in which he stood up, informing another housemate “they’ll only take it off me if I do take a bag.” But he did have things in his pockets, apparently…
Wonder why Belinda has changed her story now? Could it be that she’s had a visit from Mr Plod, gently enquiring as to exactly what she and Andy Peacher knew of Mr Hofschröer’s whereabouts? We can but hope.
Meanwhile, she sounds royally pissed off with us, which we find most reassuring. Oh, and she and Andy have made the “Justice for Peter and Barbara Hofschröer” Facebook page private, presumably to avoid further embarrassing observations on our part.
Apparently we’re doing something right!
Incidentally, Belinda wonders how many followers we have…at time of writing, this blog had received 915,553 hits in its two-year history. Not that we wish to brag [shurely not!—Ed.], but we notice that Victims Unite!, the blog Sabine calls her “most popular”, has logged 566,479 hits since its inception in August 2010. Just saying.
And now, the time has come for El Coyote to hang up his keyboard for the next week or so. He’ll be keeping an eye on things of course, and will be sure to let you know if anything extraordinary happens. Until and unless, though, he’s off. See you in a week’s time!
