A few days ago, during one of Andy Devine’s interminable Facebook live-streamed videos, one of our readers noted that a recent subject of this blog, Matt Taylor, seemed more than usually annoyed with us. In the streamed comments, he wrote:
Trust me, it is war between me and Hoaxtead Research. I’m making it my mission to smash them to pieces.
His friends Nattalie Stubbs Bradshaw (or perhaps her boyfriend J3zus / “Captain Cokehead“, who shares Nattalie’s profile) and Cat Snot, currently writing as “MacDonald Trina”, expressed approval. Try to control your surprise.
The funny thing is that we’ve been aware for some time now that Taylor’s animosity is based purely on perceived wounds to his amour propre—he has never believed in the Hampstead SRA hoax, and admitted as much early on.
Long-time supporter and commenter Sheva Burton has told us that she spoke to Taylor in 2015. Here, she repeats the story in the comments section of one of Taylor’s videos:
While we strongly object to anybody harassing the families who were falsely accused by Ella Draper and Abraham Christie, there is something even more ugly and distasteful about a non-believer in the allegations attempting to use them for personal gain.
We remarked two years ago that Sabine McNeill has never believed the cock-and-bull story of a “death cult” in Hampstead. Rather, she wrote in an email to Mrs Justice Pauffley and various other interested parties:
To avoid high level embarrassment, the following possible arrangements might be worth considering:
1) Instead of starting public law proceedings against the school, the children are returned – with immediate effect – to live with the maternal grandparents in Russia.
2) Instead of mobilising English and Russian social media, the father is given a non-molestation order for life, anywhere in the world.
3) Instead of joining the Russian government to the proceedings, the children are released to their mother and maternal grandparents with immediate effect.
In other words, “give the two children back to their mother or I will release the videos on social media”. As was mentioned in Sabine’s trial, this represented a ham-fisted attempt to blackmail a judge.
Had Sabine truly believed in the “death cult”, would she really have been willing to sacrifice all the alleged hundreds or thousands of “child victims”, in order to win what amounted to a custody battle?
Coming back to Taylor’s ludicrous threats to “destroy” this blog, his manufactured rage rings hollow, given what we know about his determination to sacrifice the truth in order to glean a few scraps of approval on social media.
And speaking of sacrificing the truth in favour of attention, here’s his latest plan, posted late last week:
Sure, Matt, whatever you say.
