Jon Wedger, Bill Maloney, and the RAINS list

Yesterday we touched on the documented links between the Ritual Abuse Information Network and Support (RAINS); their notorious “RAINS list” of random people compiled by co-founder Joan Coleman from the “alter” personalities of her client “Helen G.”; and Operation Yewtree, the police investigation into allegations of sexual abuse by the late Jimmy Savile. One of…

‘Nick’ charged with perverting the course of justice, fraud

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) yesterday announced that the person known only as ‘Nick’, whose allegations against various prominent figures set off the disastrous Operation Midland, has now been charged with 12 counts of perverting the course of justice, as well as one count of fraud. Operation Midland, which began in late 2014, was based…

Why was the JET report suppressed?

A couple of days ago we outlined the JET report on the UK’s first major case of allegations of Satanic ritual abuse. As we mentioned at the time, there’s much more to say on this important report—including the way in which was suppressed. Yes, we know, usually it’s the SRA promoters who toss around accusations…

Dr Michael Salter’s dangerous deductions

From time to time, we digress from watching the monkeys in the zoo…er, the Hoaxtead mobsters behind their keyboards and webcams, take a step back, and look at the broader picture. One aspect of the Hampstead “Satanic ritual abuse” hoax which we have been finding particularly disturbing is that it seems to be at the…

More on the links between police and SRA promoters

Yesterday we discussed why some UK police officers, who one would expect to be sceptical and evidence-directed by both inclination and training, have fallen into the trap of believing in the myth of Satanic ritual abuse. We suggested that when police and other professionals who deal with child abuse attend professional training seminars given by…

Why did the police believe ‘Nick’ and his fantasies?

Yesterday in our Comments section there was considerable discussion about “Nick”, whose fantastical imaginings about VIP paedophile rings were swallowed whole by some media and police, and who, it has recently been revealed, has been charged with offences involving child sex abuse images and voyeurism. Arthur Pint commented, “Reading the stories from Nick and how…

Robert Green attempts to resurrect the Holliehoax

There have been distinct stirrings from the once-moribund Hollie Greig hoaxers’ camp of late, most notably from Robert Green. Readers will recall that Mr Green gained a small amount of national prominence a few weeks back, when it was revealed in a Sunday Times article that Chief Constable Veale of the Wiltshire Police had contacted…

‘Sexing up’ the Hollie Hoax: The precursor to Hoaxtead

The recent furore over the Wiltshire police’s £1.5 million, two-year investigation into allegations of sexual abuse against former prime minister Edward Heath has had some interesting and long-reaching side effects, some of which seem relevant to the genesis of the Hampstead “Satanic ritual abuse” hoax. We noted a few days ago that Wiltshire Chief Constable…

Hoaxtead mobsters jump aboard Project Conifer bandwagon

The other day, we noted that Belinda has once again started cosying up to her old pal and fellow Hollie-hoaxer Robert Green, who seems to have played a role in Project Conifer, the Wiltshire Police’s strangely bungled investigation into former PM Edward Heath. We noted that Mr Green had been passing along information to Wiltshire’s…
