Hands up, everyone who wants to talk about the tattoos again!
Okay, don’t all jump at once. We know, the issue of the alleged tattoos and birthmarks which RD’s children were forced to claim adorned the privates of every single “cult member” has been done to death.
We’ve talked about the ridiculous nature of the alleged tattoos, and we’ve noted the improbability of every member of the alleged cult—except its supposed leader and its financier—having “devil or monster” tattoos.
Brian Harvey exposes Maloney
But yesterday we happened across a very interesting twist in the tattoo story, thanks to Brian Harvey, who has been publishing a series of videos which contain rather damning material about “film-maker” and early Hampstead hoax promoter Bill Maloney.
Back when Abraham Christie was having his prolonged hissy fit at the person he believed was called “Nathan Numnuts Wedger“, who had sent an email about the Hampstead SRA hoax to police, he posted the following YouTube comment:
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”Wedger a known police informant ; and the email eventually “found it’s (sic) way” to investigating/cover up Freemason, DS Steve Martin. mmmmmm…
Stripped of all subtlety, Abe is whining that even though he went to the trouble of drilling the “tattoos” idea into the children’s heads, because he knew that an alleged victim of Leon Brittan—Andrew Ash—had described similar tattoos on his abusers, Maloney and Gerrish failed to deliver the huge social media push which Abe and Ella had been assured the hoax would receive.
Abe is correct, though, that in January 2014, Maloney and Lou Collins did an interview video in which Maloney states,
Leon Brittan, you know, the witness was attacked and raped by Leon Brittan. And Leon Brittan is the one that they don’t want to go for in the moment. The witness identified Leon Brittan by a tattoo that he has on his groin, and the witness drew the tattoo for the police.
During the course of the video, Maloney identifies the witness as “Andrew”.
Maloney and Andrew Ash
In a video released late Wednesday evening, Brian Harvey continued his weeks-long rant at Bill Maloney, who he has been describing as a sort of Svengali figure, subjugating, exploiting, and dominating a vulnerable adult in order to film him accusing various VIPs of child sexual abuse.
At 18:27 Brian says,
After what Ian Puddick, Bill Maloney, Chris Fay, and what you made Andrew Ash do, right, the proof’s there, getting Andrew to say Richard Mallett’s name? Come on man, fucking grow up, it’s there, pure as day! All right? Making him lie about birthmarks on Leon Brittan, and all the rest of the fucking people on the list….
The list in question was a list of names of prominent people who were alleged to have sexually abused Andrew Ash, which Maloney read out on camera, and which Andrew would confirm. The interview was conducted at least in part for the benefit of James Fielding, a reporter with The Express newspaper, who has covered the “VIP paedophile” and “Satanic ritual abuse” beats extensively.
Richard Mallett was Brian Harvey’s solicitor, and was one of several people, including Ted Heath, named on camera by Andrew Ash in what Brian Harvey seems to believe was an attempt to silence him. We agree that Mallett’s inclusion in the list seems out of place, as to our knowledge he was hardly a “VIP”, but we aren’t as certain as Brian is about Maloney’s reason for including him.
However, what’s even more odd, from our point of view, is Brian’s statement that Andrew Ash, who definitely comes across as a vulnerable adult, was coached/coerced to make allegations concerning birthmarks and tattoos on Leon Brittan and others on the list.
These are the very birthmarks/tattoos to which Abe refers in his YouTube rant, and which he forced RD’s children to claim were evidence of membership in the alleged Hampstead SRA cult.
Evidence of coaching?
In this July 2018 interview with “Eddieisok”, Brian Harvey shares an audio clip of Bill Maloney coaching Andrew Ash’s vocal technique:
And in this phone conversation between Brian and Andrew, Andrew explicitly states that he said what Maloney told him to say:
Brian: Andrew, there’s one question I need to ask you, yeah?
Brian: What did Bill say to you when he told you to say Richard Mallett’s name? This is the thing that’s got ‘im in trouble. How did he say it to you? That I need to know, because there’s no way—and I knew that at the time, when he said…
Andrew: Well, Richard Mallett…
Brian: You don’t know Richard Mallett?
Brian: Well, so I know you don’t know him. But Bill’s made you say his name!
Brian: What did he say to you, because me and Mick woke up late, didn’t we?
Brian: He took you out of there…
Andrew: I think the best way of describing Bill, you know I can’t remember every single word he said, but…
Brian: No, I know, but I know that he made you say Richard Mallett’s name. What did he say to you?
Andrew: Cause you see, like, I didn’t know you were coming to my house. I had no idea and everything,
Andrew: And then Bill phones me up and he says, ‘Oh! Do you like Brian Harvey?’ And I says, ‘Yeah, he’s made some good records, he’s a good singer’ and everything, and he says, ‘Well’, he says, ‘I’ll bring him to my house and you can come do this interview with me’, and I said, ‘What? You’re joking!’ you know, like you do, don’t you?
Andrew: [inaudible]…and he says ‘Oh, he just needs you to back him up a bit with a name’.
Andrew: And I says, ‘What do you mean?’ I says, ‘Because I can’t give names I don’t know’, and he says, ‘Oh no!’ he says, ‘When I give the name’, he says, ‘you just say yes’.
Brian: Yeah, all right.
Andrew: And that’s how the names came about.
So according to Andrew, Maloney dangled Brian’s celebrity status before him in order to entice him to cooperate.
Back to the tattoos…
We were reminded by a reader that in his original description of the person who would later be identified as Leon Brittan, made in 1990, Andrew only described a birthmark, not a tattoo.
In his interview on BBC’s October 2015 edition of Panorama, Andrew (dubbed “David” for the show) made the following statements:
Narrator: David started making claims about VIP paedophile abuse in 1990. He’d met Chris Fay at a support group, and he says he was encouraged to name names.
Andrew: I don’t know how Chris got me into saying names…it was done over a period of weeks, you know, it were done as a joke suggesting to start with, but that suggestion became reality.
Narrator: David told me he’d described a distinctive birthmark on one of his abusers.
Andrew: I described a birthmark and a first name, and described the person, and they says the surname and everything, and says that can only be one person. Why should I doubt them?
Narrator: The man who ended up being named was Leon Brittan.
In other words, it was Maloney himself, and not Andrew, who made the claim about the tattoo.
Chris Fay claimed that the person Andrew described must be Leon Brittan, and Andrew believed him.
And then Maloney turned the birthmarks into “tattoos”.
And given that Andrew was a vulnerable person who could be made to say almost anything, it seems more than likely that the alleged “Leon Brittan tattoos” with which Abe was so obsessed were a mere figment of Bill Maloney’s fervid imaginings.
How ironic, then, that Abe would use a story invented by Maloney (and Chris Fay, who seems to have been no slouch in the “inventing horrible smears” department), which Maloney would have known full well was untrue, as bait with which to attract the attention of…Gerrish and Maloney.
Could this explain why Maloney, after a brief initial burst of interest in the Hampstead hoax, quietly removed himself from it? More than most, he must have been keenly aware that at least some of Abe and Ella’s invented “evidence” was based on his own disgusting lies.
11 August 2018:
We were reminded by a reader that the original 1990 claims by Andrew, which were ‘facilitated’ by Chris Fay, were of a birthmark, not a tattoo. We have amended this story to reflect that.
