Long-time readers of this blog might recall that in September 2016 we took the decision to make posts about Jake Clarke “private”—that is, they were hidden from public view. At that time, Jake had been involuntarily hospitalised for treatment of a psychiatric disorder, and we felt that removing posts about him would be the kind thing to do.
However, almost as soon as Jake was released from hospital in March 2017, he resumed posting about the Hampstead SRA hoax. Whatever mental health issues might have been addressed during his stay in hospital, apparently “belief in a logistically and physically impossible set of malicious allegations” was not among them.
Over the past couple of months, Jake has begun ramping up his activity on the Hoaxtead front, and a couple of weeks ago we noted that he seems to be attempting a one-man re-launch of the hoax:
A post I’ve been sending out on mass (sic). . . Hi I just had the thought I should make sure all the abuse stopping groups know about a terrible big cover up case known as ‘Hampstead cover up’ (London) and/or ‘2 Hampstead whistleblower children’. ‘Believe the children’ on Facebook.
I am for obvious reasons I feel. (sic) Let me know if more details wanted or questions regard anything. (sic)
Our most recent development with the case in my and other determined activists views is a newly formed APPG (all party parliamentary group) on Miscarriages of Justice. Their first meeting was on Wednesday 29/11 at the Palace of Westminster. It was oversubscribed though I as I am just 60ish miles from London I decided to take my chances and fortunately I was able to stand up in the meeting there. I have learnt that the way to put cases to this group is through your constituency MP (and try to get them to back the project even if you don’t have a specific case at hand and/or you don’t feel the confidence to bring up Hampstead for any reason, I realise it is time consuming to verify the truths of these allegations, and you are busy doing great work already). Then if your MP is corrupt or negligent of whatever you can take another route to action maybe through my MP if I get a good response, or one of the MPs already in the group.
Sorry so long. I can give so much info at request. Thanks so much. Loving healing etc. We got this. Thanks for what you are all doing. MASSIVE LOVE
Real child abuse activists react
Sure enough, shortly after Jake posted this, we began to hear from various child sex abuse activists who had received variants of this post via Facebook Messenger. The overwhelming reaction from these activists—all of whom suffered real sexual abuse as children, and all of whom have dedicated enormous amounts of time and energy to assisting others and trying to prevent abuse in the first place—was one gigantic “What the fuck???”
Jake’s attempt to co-opt real activists into supporting the Hampstead SRA hoax echoes a similar attempt which was made in early 2015. At that time, Belinda and her minions made the rounds of various abuse support groups on Facebook and elsewhere, attempting to “sell” the hoax. The idea, it seemed was to create a groundswell of support by making use of people who’d suffered abuse themselves, who could lend an aura of credibility to the hoax.
To the utter credit of many of those groups, they saw through Belinda’s plan and rejected it outright. Similarly, those who’ve been on the receiving end of Jake’s recent attempts are keenly aware that he is attempting to make use of them to push an obvious hoax—a move which could seriously damage the credibility of the excellent work they’ve been doing.
Those who’ve contacted us so far have all stated that they have no intention of lending the hoax their support.
However, the fact that Jake feels entitled to co-opt legitimate child sexual abuse campaigners, along with the newly formed Miscarriages of Justice parliamentary group, is alarming. We have no doubt that Jake’s attempts will fail, but we are concerned that he will launch another ill-conceived “help the children” project, similar to the one which got him sectioned in the first place.
In this context, we find the above post from Jake on the Bereave the Chickens Facebook page quite alarming:
I am pursuing authorities, police and social (services?) to bring a real investigation. And Ideally reunite (the children) with Mother and/or prove to public they are safe and this cult(ure) is ended….Contact Barnet or other London authorities if you feel compelled, to encourage an investigation into the cover up….I can help with contact details if wants.
This sounds to us very much as if Jake is planning to call, or has already called, “Barnet or other London authorities” in an attempt to unearth information about RD’s children. The location of the children is not the concern of any public citizen; and attempting to locate them is a violation of their legally mandated right to privacy.
We should emphasise that we don’t know for certain that this is what he’s planning, or doing.
However, if this is the case, we hope that Jake is prepared to face the legal consequences, as this could very well be construed by police as stalking under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997. That’s a serious charge. And a stint in prison will make a stay in a mental health unit feel like a picnic.
