Angela Power-Disney has a problem. For almost four years now, she has been churning out harassment on an industrial scale, aimed primarily at RD, but also at the families of Hampstead.
Until quite recently, she was able to lump this blog into her false allegations. As it was written pseudonymously, Angela could claim that anybody who said anything negative about her online was associated with Hoaxtead Research, and that this blog must be written by RD.
This story worked well for Angela, particularly when it came to explaining herself to the Kells Gardaí on that fateful day in August when they raided her house and removed her computers and phone to look for evidence of harassment.
Rather than admit that she had been putting an innocent man and his children in fear with her constant posts, she was able to claim, “Well, yes, I was saying things about RD, but it was only because I was being attacked viciously by trolls, most of whom were directed toward me from the blog he controls”.
Angela was raided on 17 August; on the 18th, EC made her first appearance on Flo Destroyer’s “After Dark” video livestream, and the game changed. Suddenly, it was no longer a given that RD ran this blog; EC’s voice was female, her accent Canadian.
This was a deliberate strategy on our part. We did not want to leave any doubt in the minds of the investigating officers that Angela’s claim that she was “only giving as good as she got from RD” was complete bollocks. We knew that we could state that RD and the other victims had nothing to do with this blog until we were blue in the face, but the only way to remove all doubt would be to step up and speak out.
However, this has left Angela with a serious problem: it is now clear that her harassment of RD has never been a matter of retaliation.
And so we now find Angela twisting herself into a pretzel in her attempts to claim that EC doesn’t really write the blog; or that maybe she does now, but she didn’t before.
In her recent video with Nicola from Manchester, Angela gives this explanation:
But the thing I believe is that originally El Coyote was a Welsh writer living in Ireland, called David le Dingue. And ‘dingue’ is French for ‘dingo’, which is the same as ‘coyote’.
And he was a very educated man and he was trolling very intensely in the early days and he was actually kind to me, because when I started covering Hampstead around March 2015 and then my sister died in very suspicious circumstances in April/May, two months later, and he called the trolls off, coz I was started [sic] getting trolled way back then, and when my sister died, he said, “Right, everybody, back off. Leave her alone for a week out of respect”.
You know. So, you know, and I think he was the original El Coyote.
And also there was a lot of evidence to indicate that [RD] was originally Spiny Norman and running other avatars—Sam Best and different avatars—and I think what’s happened is the [RD]s and the David Le Dingues and the high level guys, after about a year, they stepped back but they handed on the avatars to other people to write the functioning avatar go for it [sic].
We’ve already debunked everything in this theory, but we can see how it appeals to Angela, as it gives her a thread of hope to grasp onto—EC wasn’t always EC, you see, but at one time was RD, but then for unspecified reasons handed the blog over to this Canadian woman.
Angela reiterates this theory in this somewhat unhinged Facebook post from 23 September:
We won’t bother to answer these questions, other than to note that Angela’s friend Cat Snot has an Ancestry.com account, and can easily confirm or deny any familial relationship between EC and Sophie Dix. (Hint: there is none.)
These days, it seems that Angela is now on a desperate search for evidence—any evidence—which might tie RD to anybody who has ever said anything negative about her online.
Here, she manages to both contribute to the already substantial evidence pile against her, and reveal her increasing anxiety that nobody seems to be able to find any evidence linking RD to any negative online presence whatsoever: Interesting use of the term “metadata” there, Angie.
And here’s a hint: you can stop searching for RD “running sock puppet accounts”, and start preparing a more realistic defence argument.
Frankly, if we were in your shoes we would be taking Jake Clarke’s recent conviction on charges of harassment very much to heart. We would seriously consider beginning to look for a reputable solicitor. (And forget about Ben Gilroy—we hear he’s no longer taking new cases.)
And we would be thinking very hard about any further harassment of those connected to the Hampstead hoax.
