The recent furore over the Wiltshire police’s £1.5 million, two-year investigation into allegations of sexual abuse against former prime minister Edward Heath has had some interesting and long-reaching side effects, some of which seem relevant to the genesis of the Hampstead “Satanic ritual abuse” hoax.
We noted a few days ago that Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale was in rather chummy contact with Robert Green, ex of the Hollie Greig Hoax; and of course we already know that Belinda McKenzie and Mr Green began their working relationship when the Hollie hoax morphed from false allegations of “girl with Down Syndrome raped by sex ring” to “girl with Down Syndrome victim of Satanic ritual abuse”.
As Belinda was overheard to say at the time, bringing SRA into the picture “sexed it up” and might make it an easier sell to the media.
We’ve discussed Robert Green’s passing along information to Mike Veale from Dr Joan Coleman, co-founder of the Ritual Abuse Information Network & Support (RAINS).
And then we began to find other, even more interesting titbits, which cast further light on the relationships amongst those in the SRA True Believer community.
It started with a chance find: would it surprise you to learn that Charlotte Alton Ward (aka Jacqui Farmer, aka Carleea) was working alongside Belinda McKenzie in 2011, helping to publicise an “invitation-only” event at the House of Commons? This request, dated 19 October 2011, was found in the David Icke forums:
Can anyone help?
I wrote to my MP, Jeremy Corbyn (Islington), asking him to attend the invitation-only Nov 30th meeting at HOC about the Hollie Greig case to which Robert Green was invited…..as displayed on David’s site.
Today, his PA emailed me and said Jeremy would like to go if he can fit it into his schedule—did I have any more details?
I don’t, of course, but can anyone else help? Thanks in advance.
We found confirmation of the event on Robert Green’s blog, Hollie Demands Justice:Interestingly, Mr Green states that the event was “attended by a wide range of experts in the field of ritual abuse as well as a number of distinguished guests and fellow speakers, which included two young but extremely efficient police officers from South Wales, who have recently brought to justice members of a satanic paedophile ring operating in Kidwelly”.
We did a bit of poking around, and discovered that the event had been organised by Wilfred Wong, who at that time was working for Labour MP Russell Brown, and was a member of something called the Committee on Ritual Abuse.
According to a letter sent by that organisation to The Guardian in January 2012, its membership consisted of “Dr V Sinason, Rachel Wingfield, Prof Joseph Schwartz, Dr Sandra Buck, Dr Joan Coleman, Carole Mallard, Wilfred Wong, Deborah Briggs, Dr Pat Frankish, David Leevers, Orit Badouk-Epstein, [and] Lynn Greenwood”. As you can see, there’s a good deal of overlap with RAINS.
Our source indicates that Wilfred Wong was introduced to Robert Green in the summer of 2011 by Anne Greig’s partner, Carl Sims. Mr Wong also introduced Mr Green to Valerie Sinason, who invited him to join the Committee on Ritual Abuse.
This all formed the background to the House of Commons meeting, at which Mr Green spoke. It seems probable that the meeting was attended by both Belinda McKenzie and Charlotte Ward, given that Charlotte was already publicising it in mid-October 2011. At that time she was living in Belinda’s house.
We were interested to note that “guests and fellow speakers” at the HOC meeting included two of the police officers from the Colin Batley case in Kidwelly, which we’ve discussed elsewhere on this blog. This case has been held up by SRA fanatics as “proof” that people like Jean La Fontaine are wrong, and that Satanic ritual abuse is indeed practised in the UK. While the Batley case was horrific, and those involved were degenerate and disgusting, this is another case in which supposedly “Satanic” trappings were used by the criminals to terrorise the victims, and by the media to sell newspapers. For a full discussion of why this is so, we would recommend that you read this analysis of the case on the SAFF website.
What interests us particularly is that according to a very reputable source, Valerie Sinason has since revealed that she was involved in the police investigation of the Kidwelly case, prior to the trial. This would explain the presence of the two police officers at the November 2011 House of Commons meeting, which as we’ve said was organised by Wilfred Wong, a member of the Committee on Ritual Abuse.
Keelan Balderson posts on the blog, The Age of Blasphemy:
According to research by TheHollieGreigCoverUp.net, in 2011 Sinason, Wong, MP Russell Brown and other members of the CRA invited Robert Green, the mouthpiece for the Hollie Grieg fantasy, to one of their meetings at the Houses of Parliament. In subsequent alternative media coverage Green then began to promote a ritual abuse element to the Hollie Greig story, a sort of satanic “sexing up” of the original allegations. Perhaps Green thought if he won the support of the looney pyschobabble Christian lobby (CRA) the case would get more publicity. Fortunately the only people left clinging on to the tale are the pseudo-celebrities of the online conspiracy theory community, such as the UK Column and Belinda McKenzie, the former landlady of ex-MI5 agents Annie Machon and David Shayler. Even David Icke, who includes “satanic ritual abuse” as one of the central themes in his books has stopped publishing stories about the…story.
And so it would seem that despite the failure of Mr Green and the Committee on Ritual Abuse to shoot the Hollie Hoax into the mainstream, which would no doubt have helped fill the coffers nicely, certain old alliances persist.
This helps to explain the utter insistence of people like Belinda and her sidekick Sabine (coincidentally recruited in 2011—prior to that date you won’t find her writing about SRA in any of her blogs) that RD’s children could only have been describing a Satanic cult in the videos they were forced to make. Hollie hadn’t made nearly the splash they’d hoped she would…but two sweet-faced, blonde, well-spoken and articulate children who could be beaten, starved, and threatened into making the right kind of allegations? There’s gold in them thar hills!
