It appears that the mysterious Tom Pride, he of the ‘Prides Purge’ blog has made an appearance on Facebook again.
It may be wholly a coincidence that he has crawled out from whatever dank hole he has been hiding in, to champion his internet buddies from being exposed for what they really are.
So what is that we really know about ‘Man of the people’ Thomas Pride?
Not a great deal as it goes.
He is a shadowy, apparently enigmatic figure, that leaves barely a trace on the internet as to his identity.
Nothing suspicious there, as many people, especially in the political or media arena frequently scrub their internet histories, lest any past misdemeanors or nefarious activity happens to rear it’s ugly head.
But Tom has not been as scrupulously clean and saintlike as the online image he desperately tries to portray.
For example, he has once upon a time moved amongst the grubby players involved in the ‘Anarchist’ movement, who as some are only too aware of, were heavily infiltrated by the Intelligence Services as a perceived threat to national security.
A few good men (and women) were recruited from their ranks, if the rumours are true.
But again, there could be no truth in all those rumours, so it’s best not to speculate.
What is clear though, is Toms affinity for and gushing praise for his beloved Labour Party.
In fact he goes strangely quiet when asked about his feelings about the alleged Paedophiles among the left-leaning side of the political spectrum.
Still, no political party are entirely squeaky clean are they?
What is more worrying however, is his open support for online trolls, bullies, abusers and stalkers.
He hasn’t libelled me in any way, as I do not give a damn about what he spouts about me, but the accusation that the Journalist Sonia Poulton was sacked by the Daily Mail after his inference that she was a phone hacker, has quite obvious legal implications even to my tired old eyes.
Even after I told him numerous times on Twitter that it was in fact me, that supplied the phone number of the troll to Ms Poulton, Pride repeatedly refused to acknowledge it.
No, what Tom Pride did was to continue to lie and attempt to whip up support among his ‘supporters’ who were only too eager to attack any Journalist as it occurred immediately following the Leveson enquiry.
More hits for the blog Tom?
A far more disturbing side of Tom’s character came out in a later piece on his blog, ‘The Trolling of Tom Pride’ where he quite eloquently made an empassioned plea to be seen as a victim after receiving what he maintained were ‘Death Threats’.
They were, (and I would have to agree) pretty vile in their content and appear to carry an obvious threat.
But, the person who wrote them, is none other than the same specimen who has been stalking both myself and my family for more than a year.
Tom Pride knows only too well who it is, (although he removed the identity of the Tweeter) but what is rather odd about it, is that this abusive tweeter (my current stalker) and Tom Pride are now the best of friends…. on Twitter at least.
Exchanging daily pleasantries and promoting each others blogs etc.
So either Tom Pride is one of the most forgiving and fair-minded people it is possible to be, or it was a complete fraud to make Tom Pride appear to be a ‘victim’.
After all, he did pitifully write that he was one of the most “Trolled People Online.”
So which is it Tom?
If anyone dares to question ‘Victim’ Tom, you can rest assured that they will be labelled a troll, a bully and an abuser and Tom Pride can add another star to his ‘Victim Credibility Status’ and truly play the part.
