In a live-streamed video last night, ex-DC Jon Wedger called this blog “cowardly and spiteful”, and stated, “I say to them, and I’ve said it before, sod off, I don’t want to know”.
The self-proclaimed whistleblower claimed that stories recently run on this blog, including two which identified Fiona Walsh as a sex trafficker in a case which he frequently cites as evidence of a cover-up, were malicious and misleading.
In the interview on “Raconteurs News”, Wedger said,
There’s a group called Hoaxtead and as soon as I ever speak out against Satanism, this lot, they come out of their rocks, and they start bellyaching about everything.
Now some idiot has put a video up, and they say they’re calling me out about a woman called Fiona Walsh, who was pimping out the girls.
I said right from the start…that it was me and another girl that arrested her, we charged her, we put her before the court and she got a 12-year sentence.
I’ve never hid that at all, and now this group is saying that we’ve found out that Fiona Walsh has been convicted. Yes, yes, she has been convicted, because it was me that convicted her.
We were unable to verify Wedger’s latest version of his story, however.
In all the newspaper articles and videos in which Wedger has referenced “Foxy”, Walsh’s nickname, he has never once mentioned her real name, nor stated that she was tried and convicted. In fact, he has repeatedly cited this case as evidence of a deliberate cover-up of child sexual abuse and exploitation.
As for Wedger’s statement that “it was me that convicted her”, we have always been under the impression that judges and juries convict criminals in court, not police officers. However, it’s certainly possible the he was the officer in charge of her case, and that evidence he was able to provide was used to convict Walsh.
More generally, Wedger lashed out at this blog. Calling us “incredibly nefarious” and “dirty, vile, horrible people”, he said the blog was set up to protect Satanists, and accused us of blocking all dissenting comments on Facebook.
In fact, those who follow the @HoaxteadR Twitter feed might have noticed that when we tagged Wedger in a tweet and asked him to explain the Fiona Walsh/Foxy story, he promptly blocked us.
This did not come as a surprise, as various child sexual abuse survivors and activists have confirmed that when they dared to ask him questions about his activities, he blocked them, as well.
Despite his overactive blocking finger, Wedger claimed that he is open to discussion. Or possibly doorstepping, à la Tommy Robinson, we’re not sure:
Why don’t they put their names on and where they live, and I’ll pop round their house and have a chat with them.
They can come have a chat with me, it’s no secret where I am.
Mentioning ex-Kray brothers enforcer Chris Lambrianou, with whom he’s made at least one video we’re aware of, Wedger claimed that he’d had to prevent him from coming after us.
Wouldn’t it be simpler to just answer our questions?
Asked by one of his interviewers about his opinion of the Hampstead SRA hoax, Wedger stated he believes the children and not the adults. However, he did not say which part of the children’s ABE interviews he believed—the fantastical claims they were forced to make by their mother and her boyfriend, or the retractions they made as soon as they were out of their care.
Wedger did say he’d been one of the first to know about the hoax in September 2014:
I was one of the first to get it—I told a detective inspector who went on to report it at a high level. He come back to me, and he told me we’ve been asked to back off from this. So I wasn’t actually…I was off sick at the time when it came out, so, I did what I could to help on that one, but we were told there’s more to this than you know.
Why are we not surprised that Wedger would somehow manage to cram the Hampstead hoax into his already bursting-at-the-seams valise full of “this goes all the way to the top” stories?
We do credit him with exposing the fact that the hoax was a pre-planned effort by Abraham Christie and Ella Draper, but we doubt very much that this was his intent.
At 1:11:48 in the video, Wedger made the surprising allegation that this blog had been picking on his son. We were taken aback at this, as until he said it we were not aware he had a son.
Overall, we have to say that we were not surprised by Wedger’s vitriolic attack on Hoaxtead Research.
Nor are we particularly shocked that, while claiming to be open and receptive to discussion, he routinely blocks anybody who asks uncomfortable questions, while choosing to answer his critics from the safety of a video made by like-minded conspiracy believers.
This video might not answer any of the questions we’ve posed so far, but it certainly confirms that Wedger has an agenda, from which he will not be readily swayed.
