Is Hoaxtead an ‘internet prophecy cult’?

One aspect of the Hampstead SRA hoax which many of us have trouble grasping is how people can maintain their seemingly intractable belief in such an utterly improbable story, for more than three years now. Scarlet Scoop first mooted the idea of the true believers as a kind of cult, and it’s a thought we’ve…

Sabine writes Tony Gosling from prison

It seems that despite her current lack of access to the internet, Sabine McNeill has found another way to make her voice heard online. In a video available on George Kouris’  new YouTube channel, “GeeGee Tee”, Tony Gosling read out what he called the “first in a series” of letters from Sabine McNeill, who is…

The real Hampstead Coverup…revealed!

Coverup: an attempt, whether successful or not, to conceal evidence of wrongdoing, error, incompetence or other embarrassing information. In a passive cover-up, information is simply not provided; in an active cover-up, deception is used.

Hoaxtead Research: Three years on and going strong

Our goal, which we stated on the blog’s first birthday, is “to stand up and say…

Alfie Evans case & Hoaxtead: The element they share in common

On its surface, the Alfie Evans story bears little relevance to the Hampstead SRA hoax. What comparison could possibly be made between a little boy with an undiagnosable but clearly progressive degenerative brain condition, and a monstrous hoax, deliberately perpetrated by a small but persistent group of co-conspirators against an entire community? We’ve noted the…

Sabine’s bail application adjourned to Wednesday

As we noted in our last post, Sabine’s barrister appeared in court at 9:30 this morning for a bail application. And as we expected, Belinda was present, having left her usual cheering squad of motley fools at home. Belinda did notify her followers of the court date…a few hours before it started, presumably to ensure that…
