In a Facebook live-streamed broadcast that looked like a Northern Irish version of The Addams Family, Tracey Morris and her friend Morticia…er, Linda Byrne O’Riordan claimed that Belinda and friends have been able to crowd-fund the £20,000 bail security required to free Sabine McNeill until the date of her trial.
In the lead-up to the big announcement, Tracey said, “We know that (Sabine) has been continuously persecuted since she exposed the Hampstead case, it was really exposed around November 14, but…”.
Morticia quickly interjected, “The Hampstead case, for those of you who are not familiar with it, it was the systematic sexual abuse of two siblings”. Reading from a paper on her lap, she continued, “They also exposed that there were other children that had been sexually abused by their father, who was a Satanic worshipper, er, leader of this certain kind of cult….Sabine of course was involved in this case…and tried her best to highlight it and have justice served. Unfortunately justice was not served….They basically tried to make Sabine out to be a lunatic”, but she’s actually a “very educated lady”. [Note to Morticia: try looking at the camera, and stop mumbling. You’re welcome.]
“She was basically set up from the very beginnin'”, Tracey said. Because, well, Tracey. It’s not really a Tracey video without somebody being “set up from the very beginnin'”, is it?
The two women went through the approved Hoaxtead Mobster litany: falsely accused mother, very high-up people involved, massive cover-up, yadda yadda yadda. Tracey claims that she brought evidence to “the grand jury” and that this was brought to the attention of the Attorney General in London, as well as to the attention of “high-up MLAs in Westminster”—a detail of the case which has somehow previously escaped notice, but again: Tracey. [High-up what, then? Since when does Westminster contain MLAs?—Ed.]
Tracey claims to have studied this case very intently. So intently, in fact, that she now claims that the medical evidence stated that “these children had been seriously Satanically abused”. Leaving aside the fact that Dr Hode’s conclusions were rejected by her professional peers as well as by the court, is there now a definitive test for “Satanic abuse?” Fascinating.
Morticia noted that the reason for this video is to garner support for Sabine, “the lady who exposed all of this, who risked her own life and reputation….What’s happening right now is that she’s being held on false charges [Srsly???—Ed.] in relation to this case, and minor things…they’re trying to pin a lot of stuff on Sabine in order to silence her, and they want her off of the streets, and they want her off of the circuit”.
According to Tracey, “Sabine at the minute is very ill; she’s very very very frail [Three verys? That’s a lot of frail!—Ed.], we all remember the time in August of 2015 when she was arrested at the Royal Courts of Justice, when we flew her back from Germany, and she was very sick then”. Tracey described Sabine having been “persecuted by these people…the Hampstead/Hoaxtead people who were actually these ones who were named to be part of the cult. These people, they’ve tried to troll me, they’ve tried to troll people…they said a lot of things about Sabine, but Sabine has continued and even though these people are comin’ in to persecute her, these people have crucified her. She’s had numerous arrests, we all know that, she’s been tagged [Since when?—Ed.], she’s had all her equipment taken”.
After some slight dithering and confusion, Tracey and Morticia agreed that if Sabine is bailed until her trial, she will be able to use her phone “just for texting and calls”, and she won’t be allowed to use any sort of social media. According to Tracey this constitutes being “completely isolated from the outside world” and “having all her rights completely stripped away”. Funny, we weren’t aware that using the internet was a right, but perhaps we’re just old-fashioned about this sort of thing.
About 11 minutes into the live-stream, Tracey announces that the £20,000 bail has been raised [Holy buried lede, Batman!—Ed.], “as long as all her technical equipment is seized”. Tracey and Morticia talked over one another again here, but it sounded to us as though someone would be needed to retrieve Sabine’s computers and hard drives. However, we couldn’t swear to it.
Characterising Sabine’s current imprisonment as “a serious, serious persecution”, Tracey and Morticia claimed that it was all because she was “getting closer and closer to the truth”. Funny, we hadn’t noticed that.
Morticia pointed out that while the bail money had been raised, there is still no guarantee that Sabine will be bailed. This may well be true, but it won’t be because “they don’t want Sabine out for fear of her exposing” the truth. It’ll be because there are rules in place about how a bail security can be raised, and certain rules may have been broken, as we’ve pointed out here during the past few days.
Morticia then launched into a diatribe about the system of forced adoptions in the UK and the EU. We found this a bit puzzling: does she believe that Sabine’s arrests and imprisonment have anything to do, even peripherally, with forced adoptions? [Note to Tracey: brief your friend next time, mkay?]
Next up: Tracey going through her cock and bull story about how Sabine didn’t really upload the videos of RD’s children in February 2015 because they’d already been uploaded. We understand that Tracey’s reasoning skills are a bit rusty, but we find it amazing and a bit alarming that she doesn’t understand why it’s not important who did it first…even if her story of someone else discovering and posting the videos is true.
Tracey also seems to believe that her “evidence” (a fax from the person who allegedly first found the videos on the Dark Web while browsing online child sex abuse videos) was the deciding factor in getting Sabine released on bail following her first arrest. “If she was no way innocent, she would have been brought straight to prison”, she asserted.
Earth to Tracey: that’s not how it works. Each time Sabine has been arrested in the two years since, she has been held for questioning by police, and then has been released. The longest she’s spent in the cells at a police station was in August 2016, when she spent Saturday and Sunday night of the August bank holiday weekend, and was bailed on Monday.
According to Tracey, since that first arrest the police have “tortured her”. This has taken the form of “making her life a total misery” whenever she posts anything online which might violate her restraining order—because as we all know, those things are made to be broken, right? In addition, Tracey made claims regarding Sabine’s charges of harassment, which we won’t discuss here as her case is sub judice. Suffice to say we disagree with Tracey’s interpretation of events.
Side note: apparently Belinda tried to get to the prison to visit Sabine yesterday, but got stuck in traffic and had to turn back. Whoops! Well, never mind, Morticia and Tracey are planning to visit her next week, assuming Sabine is still locked up. We’re sure that’ll make up for having missed Belinda.
Bottom line: the money has been raised, but no one sounds confident that Sabine will actually be released. And if she is released, she will be subject to stringent bail conditions.
For a more succinct version, here’s Belinda’s announcement from late last evening: Interesting to note that Belinda seems far more confident that the bail security will be accepted; we’ll be keeping a watchful eye on this story, and will bring updates as they occur.
