This blog was started by Scarlet Scoop on 2 May 2015 as a parody of, and a response to, a now long-defunct blog called Hampstead Research, which was run by a Charlotte Alton Ward, a colleague of the original Hampstead hoax organisers.
Hoaxtead Research‘s original manifesto began:
If Hampstead Research is ITV, then we are Channel 4. And in the spirit of C4’s ‘Alternative Queen’s Speech’, we like to offer alternatives to the brain-hurting banality you would endure ‘over on the other side’.
Here, we point out the truths that Hoaxteaders don’t want you to hear and ask the questions they don’t want to answer. Then we sit back and watch the buggers squirm as the exposures and arrests mount up.
This blog defends those in the Hampstead community against the perpetrators and promoters of the Hampstead SRA hoax, who illegally published the names, addresses, phone numbers and descriptions of teachers, parents, social workers, clergymen, judges and churchgoers. They have slandered, threatened and harassed hundreds of innocent people. They have abused two vulnerable children by illegally plastering their confidential testimonies all over the web, thereby wrecking their lives as well as deterring other abused children from coming forward in future.
We explicitly support victims and survivors of childhood and adolescent sexual abuse and exploitation. We believe that hoaxes like the one inflicted on the community of Hampstead serve to deflect attention from real abuse cases, and can cause real harm to those who most need care and support.
The Hampstead hoaxers have broken enough laws, destroyed enough innocent lives, wreaked enough havoc, told enough lies. And it is time to stand up and say no. No more can these cowards be permitted to ride roughshod over the laws of our land and the morals that we hold dear. This is not medieval England or 17th century Salem and ridiculous satanic panic campaigns run by Bible-thumping maniacs will not be tolerated in 21st century London.
Hoaxteaders, we hereby comprehensively reject your farcical claims that an entire school shuts down every Wednesday for an orgy with the children (without ever getting caught) – and that thousands of babies have been cooked and eaten at McDonald’s by hundreds of people.
We also reject without hesitation what you have presented as “proof”. The Metropolitan police, the courts and the world’s media have proven that your claims are a blatant hoax, that a number of you have hidden agendas and that proven criminal Abe is the real abuser (the children themselves have stated that he repeatedly kicked, beat, tortured, drugged and threatened to kill them in order to force them to support his lies).
You, on the other hand, have presented “gut feeling”, “Ricky looks shifty – it’s all in his eyes”, cherry-picked Bible passages, water-dowsing readings and incomprehensible ramblings about Masons, Jews and Illuminati as “proof” of your ludicrous allegations. This is unacceptable, as is the incessant barrage of abuse, slander and death threats that you and your ever-dwindling army of supporters have launched against me and my associates purely because we have dared to question your “evidence”.
Furthermore, we will not stand for the shocking and illegal intimidation of the Hampstead community. When we discover evidence about this case, we routinely pass it along to the police. Our goal is to assist them in their endeavours to bring Hoaxtead’s perpetrators to justice, despite a number of them fleeing abroad and leaving their creepy followers to protest in their absence whilst they stir the shit from their hideouts.
We do not accept that the Hampstead hoaxers care about children. They are the real abusers.
