The other day, we noted that Belinda has once again started cosying up to her old pal and fellow Hollie-hoaxer Robert Green, who seems to have played a role in Project Conifer, the Wiltshire Police’s strangely bungled investigation into former PM Edward Heath. We noted that Mr Green had been passing along information to Wiltshire’s Chief Constable Mike Veale—information which originated from the SRA-pushing Dr Joan Coleman, a co-founder of the Ritual Abuse Information Network & Support (RAINS). We predicted that the Heath investigation was now perfectly placed to become the next Big Thing in the land of the conspiranoid Hoaxtead mobsters.
Sure enough, Kristie Sue Costa and Moanin’ Debs Mahmoudieh have already leapt aboard the bandwagon, with a reprint of an oddly fawning piece from the Mail on Sunday:And really, why not? The Project Conifer investigation and report seem tailor-made to appeal to the conspiraloon crowd.
The original rumours about Edward Heath began with none other than Conspiraloon-in-Chief David Icke, who claimed in his 1998 book The Biggest Secret that Sir Edward Heath was a practising Satanist, a child molester and murderer, and a 12-foot-tall lizard from outer space. Surprisingly, the Wiltshire Police failed to investigate Mr Icke’s last allegation, but they seem to have pursued the others with unusual zeal.
Operation Conifer began with a bang in August 2015, with a plea from Wiltshire police for “victims” to come forward; they would “be believed”, police assured them. Apparently they’d forgotten that whole “innocent until proven guilty” thing, but what the heck. It’s only the foundation of our entire legal system.
Unsurprisingly, a great many complainants…er, we mean “victims” did come forward, and Operation Conifer seemed to be going along swimmingly…well, except for that little unpleasantness with Dr Richard Hoskins (then Rachel). We reported last November that
A leading criminologist has recommended that Wiltshire police should immediately terminate its investigation into “pernicious” claims of satanic ritual abuse, according to news reports yesterday. Dr Rachel Hoskins is an expert in ritual sacrifice, and was asked by detectives to examine claims made against former Prime Minister Edward Heath and others in Operation Conifer. On Sunday, Dr Hoskins called some of the evidence being examined by Wiltshire police “fantastical”, and a “catalogue of fabrication”.
This week’s Sunday Times reports:
Hoskins was commissioned by Wiltshire police. He had himself been a victim of child sexual abuse, for which someone had been imprisoned. Yet he was scandalised by the approach of Operation Conifer: “They believed from the outset that Edward Heath was guilty. That is all they wanted me to prove. When I appeared to question their position, they pressured me about this. Never before in 200 criminal investigations has this happened to me as an independent expert witness.”
Here, Dr Hoskins discusses his involvement in the case:
What? The expert in ritual sacrifice refused to say that Mr Heath was an SRA practitioner!
Clearly, someone more amenable was needed…hence the correspondence with Robert Green, who passed along “information” gleaned from Dr Coleman.
Of the seven complain-….that is, “victims” whose allega-…”disclosures” might have led to Mr Heath, had he not been pushing up daisies, being interviewed under caution, it turns out that one had already been investigated, and dropped, by the Met. Was this revealed in the Operation Conifer report? Mmm…no.
Nor was it reported that this complainant was in prison serving a long sentence for child sexual abuse at the time he was interviewed by Wiltshire police, according to The Telegraph:
The alleged rape victim was interviewed by Wiltshire Police as part of Operation Conifer while he was in jail for child sex abuse. He remains in prison serving a very lengthy sentence. In a previous child sex abuse case, the accuser had blamed his offending on witnessing people being killed in conflict zones. He made no mention of being a victim of Heath. He has also been described as an “habitual liar”.
The allegations had first appeared in the public domain in August 2015 in a tabloid newspaper and were contained in letters written by the man to his lawyers and passed to the newspaper.
The fact that this complainant made it to the Operation Conifer Top 7 might raise questions about the viability of other allegations. What else are we not being told?
But of course, this is exactly the sort of thing the Hoaxtead mob salivates over: there are enough gaps and uncertainties in the story that they’ll be able to fill in the missing bits with their own twisted narratives, willy-nilly. We expect to hear Deborah Mahmoudieh shrieking about “lawful suspects” any moment now.
Perhaps we ought to be grateful, in a perverse way, that Operation Conifer seems to have become the plat du jour at the Conspiranoid Café, as it will doubtless distract our Hoaxtead mobster friends from their monomaniacal obsession with imaginary baby-eaters in Hampstead…but we really cannot bring ourselves to wish their attentions on anyone else, let alone the family and friends of a man who is no longer with us, and cannot defend himself.
