As promised yesterday, we’ve been doing a bit more digging around Thomas Dunn and Russ Dizdar’s trip to the UK. They attended the “Organised Abuse in the UK” conference held last week at the Tayside in Dundee, and later went on a fly-posting excursion around the town, slapping up illegal material concerning the Hampstead SRA hoax.
The conference featured speakers such as the manager of Izzy’s Promise, Joseph Lumbasi; Laurie Matthew, OBE, founder of Izzy’s Promise and Eighteen and Under; and Sarah Nelson of the Universities of Dundee and Edinburgh. According to Dunn, the conference was sponsored by RANS (Ritual Abuse Network Scotland).
And we have the most astonishing coincidences to report: RANS, an affiliate of Joan Coleman’s RAINS group, and Izzy’s Promise share a website (complete with anonymous, evidence-free “Informer Corner“, where one may shout “J’accuse!” with impunity).
As usual, the S.A.F.F. website is a fascinating source for anybody who wishes to dig into the historical connections between these groups:
Over the past seven years The Lottery fund has given one active group of Satan Hunters in Scotland nearly a half a million pounds of your ticket money to network with other believers about barmy allegations of satanist gangs abusing children in a re-run of the 1990 Satan Myth. Is this where you want your donations to go?
That group is RANS (Ritual Abuse Network Scotland) which works out of Dundee and is headed up by one Laurie Matthews. RANS is an affiliate of the detested British group RAINS (Ritual Abuse Information Network Support) which is a collection of discredited one-time influential social activists, extreme feminists, experimental psychologists and academics who originally told the government and public of Britain in 1988 that babies were being microwaved and eaten as part of Satanic Rites. Almost all the failed Satan cases foisted onto the British Public during the 1990s had the involvement of RAINS members as key players.
Laurie Matthews, a Scot who had a track record of charitable work with children in a group called 18 and Under, already had the ear of the Scottish Executive attending a number of committees on child care. Matthews even met the Countess of Wessex on one of her visits. In 2002 Camelot (the business behind The Lottery) awarded Matthews a Scottish Oyster Award for protecting children and young people in connection with ‘regular’ abuse.
Laurie Matthews runs ’18 and Under’ from premises at 1 Victoria Road, Dundee, RANS uses the same address. Also at this address is ‘Izzy’s Promise’ a charity which Matthews helps run and which was originally called TRASH (Tayside Ritual Abuse Support and Helpline) but which changed it’s name to Izzy’s Promise on 24th March 2008 ‘. …
Matthew’s charity 18 and Under has its own separate website and appears to assiduously avoid using any reference to Ritual Abuse though it does have links to Izzy’s Promise. 18 and Under concentrates solely on helping children with regular abuse and problems with helplines for bullying etc.
It would appear that Izzy’s promise is the ‘official’ mouthpiece of Matthew’s RANS work. The link between RANS and RAINS is clear in the RANS forum where a contributor complaining about specific SRA is told to contact RAINS.
The Wong connection
However, we know that
Dunny and Dinsdale Dunn and Dizdar didn’t fly all the way to Scotland for a one-day conference.
In fact, in one of the videos they released on Friday, they waxed enthusiastic about another well-known British SRA enthusiast, Wilfred Wong.
We’ve written about Wong here previously, in connection with at least two meetings held at Westminster. Wong not only has connections with certain politicians, but is well-acquainted with Robert Green, as well as members of RAINS, including the Sandra Buck, Valerie Sinason, Rachel Wingfield Schwartz, et al. He’s also chummy with Brian Gerrish of the UK Column, surprise, surprise.
Wong, it seems, was instrumental in “promoting” the Hollie Greig hoax from “sexual abuse” to “Satanic ritual abuse”, as outlined in this post from Bartholomew’s Notes:
Wong is not a well-meaning and energetic campaigner who has gone astray due to an idée fixe, but someone who is actively causing harm to innocent people by promoting and endorsing false allegations. The Hollie Greig story is a clear example of the bone-headed unfalsifiability of conspiracy theorising, with Green’s imprisonment simply confirming the truth of the conspiracy.
In other words, Wong is just the sort of well-placed SRA-inclined individual Dunny and Dinsdale would like to meet.
Onward to London?
While Dizdar and Dunn have been cagey about their travel plans in the UK, Dizdar did mention on his Facebook page yesterday that he, at least, might be travelling to London.
While it seems odd that he and Dunn would travel all the way to Scotland only to give Hampstead a miss, we do note that he said early last week that his UK jaunt would only last six days: At this point it would seem prudent for anybody in the Hampstead area to keep their eyes open for the pair. By their fly-posting and unkempt hair shall ye know them.
