Tiny Magical Creatures rides again

Let’s go back in time. Waaaaaay back, to late 2015 when Abraham Christie and Ella Draper had two blogs, from whence they not only harassed their victims in Hampstead, but hawked t-shirts and coffee mugs featuring the faces of two children, with logos like “Free the Hampstead 2”.

Taylor’s latest self-promotion scheme
