Brees, your slip is showing

Back in the day, EC had a number of friends who were journalists. They didn’t call themselves that—they called themselves hacks, and when plied with a drink or three they could be extremely entertaining company. One in particular regaled his audiences with tales of his early career at a one of the big-city rags which…

Hoaxtead Research: It’s good to be loathed

It’s been a bit of a standing joke around the Hoaxtead Research water cooler: after nearly four years of reporting the antics of the Hampstead SRA hoax promoters, we’ve grown accustomed to their allegations that this blog is run by your choice of government agency: MI5 MI6 GCHQ CIA EC has lobbied fiercely on behalf…

Wedger & Wong: The SRA agenda

Last week’s Coup that Wasn’t not only provided some much-needed hilarity here at Hoaxtead Research, but took up a great deal of airtime, with the result that we gave short shrift (all right, no shrift at all) to a story which deserved our attention. We refer, of course, to the budding comedy duo of Wedger…

Jon Wedger bites off more than he can chew

You’ll recall that ex-Metropolitan Police officer and self-proclaimed whistle-blower Jon Wedger recently expressed his displeasure that we have been asking him awkward questions about some of his claims. As if to drive the point home, he blocked EC on Twitter for daring to question him…and then asked, “Why is Hoaxtead so mean to me?” (or…

Hampstead SRA hoax timeline, updated (again)

Yes, it’s time for another hoax update timeline, oh huzzah, let the bells ring out. In the four years since Sabine McNeill first released the videos of two children making extraordinary claims about a “cult” run by their father, which included everybody at their school (except their mother), the story of the hoax’s genesis has…

Is Wedger really meeting the Archbishop of Canterbury?

We were startled a couple of days ago when ex-Metropolitan Police officer and self-proclaimed “whistle-blower” Jon Wedger announced in his typically modest and unassuming way that he had been invited to a meeting with no less a personage than the Archbishop of Canterbury. He placed this notice on Twitter: No mistake about it, that’s the…

Wedger to Hoaxtead Research: ‘Sod off’

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…

‘Jon Wedger Foundation’ isn’t a foundation…or a charity

Jon Wedger, ex-Metropolitan Police officer and self-styled whistleblower, seems to have borrowed a page from Belinda McKenzie’s book. In 2015, Belinda’s “Knight Foundation”, founded by Belinda and named (as we later learned) for a convicted sex offender, Christopher Xavier Knight, was touted as a charity which would “help children and families”: A bit of fancy…

Wedger’s failed court cases

Many thanks to the new commenter, Jammy Dodger, who posted a most interesting comment on our recent post, “Wedger’s lies: ‘Foxy’ appealed sentence, was denied“. We are reprinting the comment here, as we believe it may help to cast some light on Wedger’s police career. In 2010 Paul Robin Denton was jailed for 12 years,…

Wedger’s lies: ‘Foxy’ appealed sentence, was denied

Yesterday, we delved into ex-Metropolitan Police officer Jon Wedger’s false allegation that his attempts to bring a case of child trafficking to light had been suppressed by his superior officers. We identified the offender in the case, a woman named Fiona Walsh, and demonstrated that, far from the case being covered up, it had been…
