In our continuing series on the genesis of the Hampstead ritual abuse hoax, we’ve looked at who started the hoax, when they started it, and how it was promoted. Ultimately, though, while players like Belinda McKenzie, Sabine McNeill, Neelu Berry, Charlotte Alton Ward, and Angela Power-Disney have all been integral to setting up and publicising…
