On Monday we reported that Wesley Hall had live-streamed part of his arrest, in which he was pulled from a flight bound for Málaga, Spain. The arrest came in answer to a warrant from the London Metropolitan Police. In the videos, it transpired that Wesley was being sought on charges of perverting the course of justice, but the arresting officer did not give further details.
Yesterday Wesley stated on his blog that he’d been taken to Colindale Police Station in London, where he’d given a no-comment interview:Although it appears that Wesley has not actually been charged yet, his computers…oh, pardon us, his MacBook and phone have been seized, and presumably he is now on bail, which explains his cautiously worded Facebook post.
He appears to believe he’s being mightily clever in doing so, but given the details he has released, it’s entirely possible that he’s outsmarting himself here.
And how could we leave out this moment of high drama?
At the end of the ‘no comment’ interview, I was asked if there’s anything I’d like to say…
I lifted my eyes up from where they were fixated during the ‘no comment’ replies and looked directly in to the eyes of the person opposite me and said….
‘Why are you not investigating the abusers of the children?’
Well, Wesley, we’re going to take a flyer and suggest that the “person opposite” was not investigating the abusers of the children because they are currently on the run from the law in or near Marbella, Spain. That’s just our guess, of course. Could be wrong.
Doing it by the book
We confess we were amused by Wesley’s story of looking “directly into the eyes” of the officer who’d interviewed him; is there some sort of Hampstead Hoaxer Handbook™ which specifies that at some point one must stare deeply into someone else’s eyes?
Consider this: back when Charlotte Ward’s Hamster Research blog was a going concern, Abe wrote this:
My chastisement of A & G has been exaggerated to the degree to which RD’s behaviour has been played down. As a 58 year old from Tottenham, once I realised that the children had been possibly sexually abused, it wasn’t difficult for me to realise that I could make an ideal scapegoat by the real culprits were I to voice my suspicions. Twice I considered removing myself from this this delicate situation, anticipating some such scenario with me as the convenient scapegoat.
Remembering M’s big green eyes looking deeply into mine imploring me telepathically to help, before A & G disclosed, remind me that this temporary discomfiture is nothing if one child is spared this torture. Naively or otherwise I decided to trust and go to the authorities.

And in December 2015, apparently having forgotten that it was Abe who’d stared creepily into some poor child’s eyes, Ella said this—about the same child:
(S)he “remember(s) one incident where A’s friend came to my house” and “she was looking into my eyes, she was asking for something, she was begging for something, for something I did not see. Then later on, A. disclosed…this girl’s name was M…” and surprisingly enough, M was one of the children alleged to have been a victim of ‘the cult’.
Sorry, little digression there. Right, where were we?
Hail the conquering hero and all that
Needless to say, Wesley’s friends are all deeply impressed with his foray into the lion’s den:
Let’s hope that all this mindless adulation doesn’t lead Wesley to breach his bail conditions. Because that would be a real pity, that would.
