Since Hoaxtead Research moved from “daily come hell or high water” to “whenever something interesting happens” publication, this blog’s daily stats have declined from ~1,500 views to between 700 and 900.
Thus we were surprised about a week ago to note a sudden spike—1,700 views in one day. And nearly 900 of those views zeroed in on past posts about our old friend Tracey Morris, the Gob of the North.
“What’s she been up to now?” we wondered, and tottered off to her Facebook page.
There we found a live feed dated 18 September.
In it, Tracey stands in front of a poster of a young man—identified as Thomas M.–and spouts off about how he was a member of a “notorious family of English gypsies who are not very well liked and certainly are not very well respected”.
Worse, she accuses him of being a “perpetrator” and a paedophile, who “groomed young girls”.
“What this guy has done, and is still doing today, is disgusting…sickening”, she solemnly intones. “And it has to be stopped”.
Claiming to be a “good friend of [her] father”, Tracey asserts that when he was 20 years old, this young man began grooming a young girl named G., then aged 15. Tracey describes the young man as a criminal, and claims that following a stint in prison, he terrorised G. and her family.
When her father attempted to stop him seeing his daughter, Tracey says, The young man rammed his car into the father’s car, wrecking it; he then “drove himself into a lake”. Fortunately for the young man, G.’s father called emergency services and he was fished out.
Later, G.’s father came home from a three-day trip to find his daughter gone, her room empty.
“She was taken”, Tracey says grimly. “He had came for her. She was 16. Seventeen. That was a year and a half’s grooming, and he got her when she was 17”.
G. is now 23, and has had two children with the young man, Tracey says, claiming that he is very violent towards her: “He beats her a lot; he locks her in the flat, he locks her in the caravan”.
“This man, in the eyes of the law, is a paedophile”, Tracey says.
There’s more, but you get the idea. As of last night, this video had received more than 13,000 views.
So what’s the real story?
A day after Tracey released this live feed, it came to the attention of the people who run an anti-paedophile organisation called “Child Protection Awareness”.
On their Facebook page, they wrote, “This vile woman is Tracey from Belfast”. Strong beginning, we thought.
I was sent a live this woman done claiming to work closely with peadophile hunting teams, especially in Southern Ireland, obviously because we are the only active Southern Ireland team people messaged think she was apart of CPA.
I can confirm this woman has never ever worked with CPA, this woman did a live accusing a young traveller man of grooming and been a peadophile, over and over again, sent threats to him and as you can see had a poster of him on her wall, t-shirt with his picture on it also during this live, she also accused this young man of severely beating his now wife and mother of his children on a daily basis, with NO EVIDENCE of her claims…
I have spoken to this young lady (who’s husband was accused) who’s is 23 now and confirmed today to me that she did indeed run away with her now husband when she was 17 and he was 20, she doesn’t have contact with her family which is her own choice, police have also done welfare checks and shes also confirmed this to them, this young lady is very distressed because this woman she doesn’t know is accusing her husband of been a peadophile and as we all know once something is said on the internet it stays there and the effect that might have on her own children when they grow up.
This lady claims to be very good friends with this young ladies father, I’ve spoken to him and hes told me hes never even met her, he helped her by letting her stay in one of his properties when she became homeless as a favour to another friend of his.
I’ve asked this woman to come on a live with me to clear up the matter and shes refused to do so.
This woman has NO RIGHT accusing a innocent man of been a peadophile, people need to be warned about her.
Beneath this statement is a video of a phone conversation between Tracey and G., in which Tracey claims to know all about the young woman’s life.
“I don’t know who you are,” G. says. “You’re talking to me as if I’m a child. I’m a grown woman, I’m expecting another baby, and putting this stress on top of me…I’m married, it’s up to me what I do with my life…”
Tracey begins shouting: “Do you think I give a shit? Do you think I give a shit about…”
But G. isn’t having any: “You’re ringing ME!”
Shouting over Tracey (no mean feat), she informs her that she doesn’t want either her or her father interfering in her life. Tracey attempts to claim that the father has been victimised, at which point G. begins shouting that her father use to beat her mother, and that he had done time in jail for it.
It’s not an easy call to listen to.
G. has her say
In a video on the CPA page, dated 25 September, G. quietly and calmly gives her take on the situation:
She states, “Tracey Morris, this is to you, who’s put a 40-minute long video of my husband on Facebook, saying that he’s a paedophile, and that he groomed me from a young age, which is just lies”.
G. says that she and her husband ran off and got married when she was 18 and he was 22. Before that, she says, they were together for about a year and a half.
She says her father was not happy about the relationship. In a complete reversal of Tracey’s story, however, G. states that it was her father who rammed his van into her boyfriend’s car: “[He] ended up getting rammed into the river, nearly lost his life in the river, it’s all over Google“.
G. says this is why she and the young man ran off together.
Following further violence, in which her father and “three dangerous men” broke her 70-year-old father-in-law’s arm, the young man told his father not to press charges. Despite efforts on the young couple’s part, they seemed unable to win her father’s approval, and so they have now chosen not to have contact with him.
According to the woman who posted G.’s video on the CPA page, G.’s father denies having claimed that his son-in-law was a paedophile.
Tracey, meanwhile, continues to assert that he is, claiming that G.’s father had “evidence” of this claim. The father has denied saying this.
The Hampstead hoax connection
Long-time readers of this blog will hardly be surprised at Tracey Morris making unfounded allegations against innocent people—it’s who she is and what she does.
However, we were startled last night when we learned that G.’s father is none other than Leigh Ravenscroft.
In our early attempts to identify the protesters outside the Hampstead church, we affectionately nicknamed Ravenscroft “Baldy Fruitcake”. He participated with some enthusiasm, and along with Neelu Berry and others, he was captured on video chasing an elderly female parishioner down the street, howling abuse at her.
He is an enthusiastic Freeman on the Land advocate, probably best known for an incident involving a boat which was removed from his custody for non-payment of fees to the Canal & River Trust. Interested readers can find the judgment on that case here.
Somehow, G.’s decision to have no further contact with her recalcitrant father makes even more sense now.
Meanwhile, Tracey Morris continues to insist that the young man is guilty. A recent post seems to suggest that at least part of her motivation might be his’ family background:
But as we have seen on countless other occasions, Tracey’s prime motivator seems to be her all-consuming desire to big herself up and come across as an outspoken heroine, rather than the pathetic scrounging attention seeker she really is.
Some things just never change.
