It’s been a while since we last heard from Angela “The Mouth” Power-Disney, but she seems to be making up for lost time with yesterday’s video release, which consisted of her usual slaggery, blaggery, and lies:
This hour-long extravaganza is accompanied by four “appendices” if you please—videos in which she interviews someone named Joe, seemingly without their knowledge or consent. She identifies Joe as “someone on a board of five, consulted by Scotland Yard on the Hampstead case”. We’ll come back to these videos in our next post, but the consensus from those who’ve bothered listening is that they’re best enjoyed at double-speed. You have been warned.
Angela throws “a campaigner” under the bus
Probably the most interesting bit of Angela’s latest gossip-fest: “a long-time Hampstead campaigner” has been arrested.
See if you can separate truth from fiction in this fabulous bit of online journalism:
I’m aware that many people have been arrested, sectioned, targeted, harassed, trolled, lambasted on websites, and so on and so forth, and this is still unfolding.
But the most alarming thing is that another long-time Hampstead campaigner who’s also a survivor, which many are…many survivors resonated with the children’s disclosures, even though I concede…in my opinion, there was a small amount of coaching…um…but for me, the bulk of what the children said is the truth and needs properly investigating [Dear God, Angela, spit it out!—Ed.] but anyway, another long-term campaigner, also a survivor, was arrested. And uh, she, like many survivors, myself included, suffers from complex post-traumatic stress disorder, uh…she was not anticipating an arrest.
She was told, ‘You’re looking at 6 months on remand, then five to 10 years in prison, so we strongly recommend you cop a caution, so if you’d like to come with us down to the station we’ll take your plea’ to Harassment I believe, and everything will be fine, just stop talking about it, and in a state of alarm and anxiety she went down to the station and copped a caution, she thought it wasn’t too serious, and did her very best to educate the interviewing police officers, who had said that it was Central London that had given them strict instructions to come and arrest her.
They started from the premise that the father is absolutely innocent, without a doubt, and this is outrageous, and by the end of the, I don’t know, two, three hours, dunno, four, five hours, she was in a cell for a while, they were very much alarmed that things were not as cut and dried as had been presented to them.
But nevertheless, they elicited a caution under what I would say was duress, under intimidation, entrapment almost, because you cannot just go as a policeman or woman and say you’re looking at six months on remand, and five to 10 years in jail if you don’t do as we say. And then this campaigner discovered after having thought a caution wouldn’t be so bad, and it was an opportunity to educate the regional police to evidence that seemed to have not been properly examined, she then discovered that the caution—she was popped in front of a magistrate ever so quickly, it was all very civilized, as it sometimes is when children are taken, the social workers can be smiling and saying you’re doing the right thing, and it’s best for the child and so on, and it’s only with delayed reaction that you get the trauma and the horror of what you’ve been induced to sign, it can be quite subtle.
So, popped in front of a magistrate, found guilty of harassment, I think it was, cautioned, and gagged, and then discovered that the criminal record would exclude her from visiting her child, who lives in America. And then also, as the cold light of day, and she got over the trauma and remembering being locked up as a child, and being triggered into flashbacks as the dust cleared, she realized that she had been had.
So I really wish her well in her now legal attempt to overturn that plea, it is a scary thing to be frightened and told you’re looking at jail time, we’re going to lock you up etc.
This is a most interesting announcement, coming as it does on the heels of what appears to be another Hampstead hoaxer arrest last month.
And it doesn’t take a great deal of detecting to work out that Angela is talking about her co-hoaxer, Deborah Mahmoudieh. Angela’s description certainly seems to tick all the boxes: “long-time campaigner”, “complex PTSD”, “child who lives in America”…you be the judge.
We certainly hope that Angela obtained Debs’ permission before blurting this out to the world at large…but really, what are the odds?
A few blatant untruths
Even in this rather short discussion of Debs’ alleged arrest, we picked up a number of real clangers on Angie’s part.
First, if Deborah was interviewed by the police, it’s extremely unlikely that they would have made any guesses, educated or otherwise, about the length of time she could expect to be in remand, nor the length of any custodial sentence she might expect as a result of being found guilty of a harassment charge. This is the sort of information which is conveyed to a suspect by his or her solicitor, not by the police.
Second, it’s also highly unlikely that a hearing, in magistrate’s court or anywhere else, took place. Cautions are routinely given by police, and there would be no need to bring the court into it. This means that the suspect was not “popped in front of a magistrate, found guilty of harassment…cautioned, and gagged”.
Third, in order for the police to administer a caution, the suspect must have admitted an offence, without raising any defence. In other words, if the suspect’s solicitor was present (and it sounds very much as if they were), and the caution was given, then the suspect (let’s call her “Deborah” for convenience’ sake) must have admitted that each piece of evidence which was presented to her by the police had in fact been issued by her, and that she had engaged in harassment of one or more individuals.
And fourth, Angela’s blatant attempt to claim that the police “were very much alarmed that things were not as cut and dried as had been presented to them” is barely worthy of consideration. If the police realised this, why did they bother giving the caution? Why not just say, “Whoops, sorry, our error, off you go then”?
Instead, Debs has found herself cautioned, presumably with some conditions such as “don’t do it again or we will arrest and charge you with Harassment 4”.
And as we know, Deborah has been removing all evidence of harassment against RD and the residents of Hampstead over the past month—so it seems probable that an arrest and caution did take place. As we know, though, Angela can never tell a story without adding her own ridiculous melodramatic embellishments.
Angela and Belinda: The break-up
Later in the video, Angela allows that she has parted ways with Belinda McKenzie and Sabine McNeill. She mentioned this, of course, in her email to The Right Reverend Captain Hoo-haw Pike the other day, but in the video she makes it official.
What’s at the heart of this sudden turn-about? Well, apparently Angela has finally learned something which the rest of us knew three years ago: that Terence Ewing, a close associate of Belinda and Sabine, whose name formerly occupied pride of place on their Association of McKenzie Friends letterhead, is or was (gasp!) a friend and business associate of Roger Gleave, the infamous paedophile sometimes known as the “Bishop of Medway”. Wow, really, Angie? Amazing. Next thing you know, you’ll be telling us that Belinda allowed convicted paedophile Peter Hofschröer to stay at her home!
In any case, Angela very generously offered Belinda the opportunity to explain herself; Belinda has said nothing on the matter (because really, what is there to say?), so blam, that’s it, they’re done.
We’ll save our review of the last third of Angela’s “February Update” video for tomorrow’s post, so stay tuned!
