Over the past year and a half, we’ve noticed that a former Metropolitan police officer, Jonathan Wedger, has been peddling tales of “police corruption at the highest levels” to almost anyone who’ll listen.
Mr Wedger has been quoted extensively in the tabloids, as well as by Brian Gerrish of UK Column, making claims that the Met deliberately covers up the sexual abuse of children. He has also stated that he now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the bullying he received when he attempted to bring this situation to the attention of his senior officers. Following some time on sick leave, he has now been dismissed from the force and is attempting to sue for psychiatric injury. We have our own opinions of his allegations, which we will share at a later time. However, today we’d like to talk about ex-DC Wedger’s contribution to closing the police investigation into the Hampstead SRA hoax.
We can now reveal that in September 2014 ex-DC Wedger played a small but critical role in ensuring that the police were aware that the claims made by Ella Draper and Abraham Christie were in fact a complete—and intentional—hoax.
Who let the cat out of the bag?
Long-time readers might recall that Abraham and Ella wrote to a well-known and influential troofer on 11 September 2014. The email, addressed to Brian Gerrish of the UK Column, was a laundry list, setting out all the salacious details which Gerrish would be able to publicise if he backed the hoax. It was meant to tempt him into joining in, but in fact it had the opposite effect.
This tweet from Drifloud on 8 March 2016 contains the email, and indicates that it was sent only to Gerrish:
Keep in mind that this email was sent while the Hampstead case was still under active investigation by the Child Abuse Investigation Team (CAIT).
In a YouTube comment in early 2016, Abraham and Ella complained bitterly that this email had been sent, via a circuitous route, to DC Steve Martin, who was then working on the Hampstead investigation.
Here’s what Abrella said:
On or around the 16th of September 2014 Steve Martin received an email that had “found it’s (sic) way to S.O.E.C.A. (Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse) via D.P.S. (Directorate of Professional Standards)” The sender explains that having read the contents of said email it appeared “IDENTICAL to a current investigation of yours 2419891/14 concerning allegations of sexual and ritual abuse at Christchurch Primary School.”
“The email appears to be one in (sic) the same sent by the MOTHER TO THE INFORMANT and the contents appear on your CRIS.”
BRIAN GERRISH of UK Column was the ONLY person to have received that email/file from the mother on the 11th of September 2014 .
But ,but Brian couldn’t be the informant , he sent the email to Bill Maloney on 15-09-14 who sent it to Nathan ‘NumNuts’ Wedger who sent it to P.C. Paul Armstrong, who in turn sent it to Anna Bewley at D.P.S. H.Q. saying that he’d received a disturbing email which includes serious allegations of wrongdoing by MPS officers … Then via two internal D.P.S. emails from Anne and PC Craig Langley the email “found it’s (sic) way” to DC Victoria BARNES SC&036 -SOECA LIT
29th Floor (East Block), Empress State Building, and thence back to Steve Martin , who had the original email from the original INFORMANT, which as Vicky noted was already in Steve’s CRIS report.
Q. Name original informant, AAND (sic) subsequent informants used to distract from original informant.
For a bonus prize explain why Brian never said a word about the case till MSM’s attempted hatchet job on the Whistleblowers, ella & abe and WHY BILL MALONEY HAS SAID F-CK ALL. nemesis )+( nerd
Shortly after posting the above comment, Abrella wrote on the same YouTube comments thread,
Bill Maloney in an interview with Lou Collins .(connected to Danielle la Verite)speaks out about the tattoo on Leon Brittan’s pubenda (sic!) that a victim (Andrew) of Leon Brittan described and drew during an interview with a newspaer (sic) almost 2 years ago , so when Maloney and Gerrish received Ella’s email describing the Tattoos and distinguishing marks on the cult members (sic) pubenda (even more sic) they were well aware of this corroborating the testimony of Leon Brittan’s victim. Why then have neither of them said anything apart from the few times that Gerrish mentions the case on UK Column when the MSM had attempted a hatchet job on Abe and Ella, and he had to say something ? Now it’s clear why the info re Tattoos was buried buy (sic) Maloney, Gerrish AND the police and exposes Maloney and Gerrish as Shills ! Quite apart from the fact that Maloney passed the email onto a Nathan “NUMNUTS” (sic) Wedger a known police informant ; and the email eventually “found it’s (sic) way” to investigating/cover up Freemason, DS Steve Martin. mmmmmm…
Abe and Ella were aware of the path which the Gerrish email took, since they were now in possession of Ella’s court bundle, turned over to her by her solicitors when she sacked them in December 2014. But why were they so angry that Nathan “Numnuts” Wedger had sent it to the police?
Who is Nathan ‘Numnuts’ Wedger?
Despite our best efforts, we were unable to determine the identity of Nathan “Numnuts” Wedger, the “known police informant” who bridged the gap between Bill Maloney and PC Paul Armstrong.
However, when a recent interview between Lou Collins (yes, she’s back!) and ex-DC Jonathan Wedger came to our attention, we wondered: how common a surname is “Wedger”? And could this former cop have had anything to do with unveiling the true purpose of the Hampstead SRA hoax?
As it turned out, Wedger is not a very common surname, and the only “Nathan” we found would have been a young teenager in 2014, so unlikely to have been involved in this case.
However, we did discover that someone else named Nathan Wedger has a mostly unused Pinterest account: He has only one follower, whom he follows back: And looking at his account URL reveals something even more interesting: So we knew that someone named “Nathan Wedger”, with a friend named Tasha Leach, uses the online tag “numnut2009”.
After a bit of digging through public records, we discovered that Ms Leach’s maiden name was “Wedger”, and she has a twin brother: Jonathan.
It was at this point that the obvious struck us between the eyes: remove the letters “Jo-” from “Jonathan”, and you have….
In our searches we found a few confirmatory details: Jonathan and Natasha Wedger were born in 1970 in London. In his interviews, ex-DC John Wedger has stated that he is 47 years old.
And on a site called Healer Practitioner Association International, we found a “Jon Wedger” using the email address <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
Jon Wedger, “healer practitioner”, gives his address as Hemel Hempstead; ex-DC John Wedger mentions that he lives in Hemel Hempstead as well.
Now we only needed to confirm the connection between Jonathan Wedger and Bill Maloney.
As it turns out, Mr Wedger mentions Bill several times in his interview with Lou Collins. In fact, at one point in the second part of the interview, he mentions that he and Bill are good friends, and says he’s known him at least eight years.
Ex-DC Wedger cracks the case
Suddenly, the chain between Brian Gerrish and DC Steve Martin becomes crystal clear.
On 9 September, the CAIT team receives the content of an email from “the informant”—Abraham’s brother-in-law Jean-Clement Yaohirou—which is logged in the CRIS report:
The content of this email is virtually identical to the email which Abe and Ella would send to Gerrish on 11 September, the same day the children were taken into protective custody. In fact, the children were taken into custody shortly after 7 p.m., and the email was sent to Gerrish at about 10 p.m.
This was also three days after Gerrish had sent one of his colleagues, Finn Hagan, to check out the children’s stories. It’s difficult to say whether Gerrish remained unconvinced by Finn’s account of the visit, or Abe was sending the email in an attempt to stir up interest in the story before word got out that he and Ella had coached and abused the children.
On 15 September, Gerrish forwards the email to his friend Bill Maloney, perhaps wishing for a second opinion as to whether he should get behind Abe and Ella.
Maloney, also concerned, sends the email to his trusted friend at the Met, DC Jonathan Wedger. Surely he’ll know how to deal with something like this? Ex-DC Wedger has stated that he began “whistle-blowing” in 2014, and was put on sick leave, which explains why Maloney sent the email to his personal email address, “Nathan Wedger” at <email@example.com>. Abe would later notice this detail and add it to his angry comment, possibly in an attempt to humiliate “Nathan Wedger”, who he blamed for alerting police to the hoax.
Ex-DC Wedger, realising that this email contains very serious allegations which ought to be investigated, forwards it to another officer, PC Paul Armstrong, who in turn sends it to Anna Bewley, who works in the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) at the Met.
From there, the email proceeds to DC Victoria Barnes at the Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse (SOECA) unit.
DC Barnes recognises the details contained in the Gerrish email as identical to those in a case currently under investigation by the CAIT, and so she forwards it to DC Steve Martin on 18 September 2014. This is recorded in the CRIS:
At this point, DC Martin has received one email from the original informant—Jean-Clement Yaohirou—forwarding an email J-C received from Abe and Ella.
And now, nine days later, he receives a second, identical email, originating not with Jean-Clement or even with Ella, but with two known conspiracy theorists, Brian Gerrish and Bill Maloney. And he can see from the email address that it had been sent to Gerrish by none other than “hempstarsdynamics”…that is to say, Abraham Christie. (Oh, and did we mention that DC Martin already knows Abraham from a previous encounter, when Abe assaulted his own son?)
Abe and Ella were clearly attempting to hawk the children’s story round to Gerrish while the police investigation was in progress. Anyone who has ever been involved in a criminal investigation will be well aware of the police warning not to discuss the case with anyone else, lest the evidence be contaminated, and the case destroyed in court. Yet Ella and Abe were not just discussing the case, they were sending details of it to Gerrish, in a kind of “troofer news release”.
If you were DC Martin, do you think you might have smelt a rat at this point?
If Ella and Abe had all this information about the alleged cult, why had they not immediately reported it to the police? Why would they have sent this information to Gerrish instead? And why did they send it to Gerrish within hours of the children being taken into police custody? If their aim was to shut down a cult, why would they interfere in the investigation in this way?
Could it have been because they were in the process of attempting to engineer a gigantic publicity stunt?
While the bulk of the police investigation had already taken place by the time the Gerrish email reached DC Martin’s desk, the email would have provided the proverbial icing on the cake. It would have demonstrated conclusively that this case, as Ella would later admit, had never been meant to reach the police and CPS. It was a hoax through and through.
And sure enough, in the closing pages of the CRIS report, we find this notation:
By the end of the police investigation, the Gerrish email had made one thing very clear: the police were onto Abraham. They understood that this wasn’t about “saving children”, but about attracting attention from the conspiracy community.
And for this final nail in the Hampstead SRA investigation’s coffin, we can thank ex-DC Jonathan Wedger.
We can now give him full credit: whether intentionally or not, he helped to demonstrate the real nature of the Hampstead SRA hoax, and bring the investigation to its rightful conclusion.
