WHO IS THE OUTLAW?
Lately I have began to ask myself that very question.
There are a number of online theories currently circulating, unfortunately there is not one who has managed to get even remotely close.
According to a group of Trolls on Twitter, I am a ‘Convicted’ wife beater who left his first wife in a bloody heap and am now doing the same to my children.
I am guessing they got this piece of revelatory information from trawling the depths of the internet where they probably gave a collective whoop of sheer delight when they found this.
Although the man’s name is similar to mine, the fact that he lives in Cambridge and is 36 years of age, (I am 50) did not seem to matter, as they wasted no time circulating this information on their Twitter feeds that it was in fact…. me.
It was on the internet and it was the only person who appeared to share a similar name, so therefore, without a shadow of a doubt, it must of course be me.
A ‘Fact’ that was so damnably inaccurate, my ex-wife even felt the need to come online in order to attempt to dispel this damaging piece of malicious gossip.
But to no avail.
The trolls had decided it was me, so were unshakeable in their belief, that even the vehement denials of the only two people who could possibly know the truth, were of course, wrong.
You have to remember that many of these online weirdo’s have never met me, the only thing they know about me is what they had found on the internet and what they have made up between them.
One of them however, I have met.
He turned up at my door one day, out of the blue.
He has even admitted that he only visited my home in order to ‘check me out.’
A rather odd thing to do and say don’t you think?
Extremely creepy and stalker-like behaviour some would say.
Needless to say, after we met (he stayed nearly eight hours) he then took it upon himself to perform what he believed was a complete character assassination on myself, through his blog and his abrasive, abusive Twitter accounts, even alleging that I told him of my ‘witnessing a child murder’ among other things.
Bear in mind that was our first and only meeting in person at that time and we had only spoken on the phone and communicated via Twitter previously.
All instigated by him, incidentally.
I did not trust him one iota and was hardly going to pour out my heart to him, (although, judging on the amount of cannabis he smoked in my back yard I did not even think he would remember).
But each to his own, and it is not my style to criticise anybody’s recreational habits, even after he tells anyone who will listen that I am ‘Addicted to prescription Drugs.’
I do not wish however, to reveal things about my personal life in order to prove that to be yet another lie.
* For the record: Our suspicions were raised, when he invited my family to his house, where he suggested my young children should sleep in his house, while my wife and myself slept in his camper van, which was parked in the street outside?*
It seems now though, that I am no longer a 36-year old convicted wife-beater from Cambridge, as the panel of idiots on Twitter have now decided that I am in fact… convicted child killer Howard Hughes.
There are two trains of ‘thought’ that have worked on this apparently.
I recently put a picture of myself on this blog standing outside the main entrance to the Bryn Estyn childrens home.
From that, one moron has deduced that I am either 5′ 1″ or 6′ 8″ in height, and therefore must be Michael Guidi, or Howard Hughes, the man who was convicted for the murder of 7-year old Sophie Hook in Llandudno on the north Wales coast in 1995.
The other Twitter school of Troll thought however, has decided that I am also somehow involved in a ‘Sick’ plot revolving around the 1943 Movie ‘The Outlaw.’
Their logic for this, seems to be that I have an online friend called Jane Russell (her real name incidently) and the movie was directed and produced by Howard Hughes, the eccentric American Billionaire.
So, who is the Outlaw?
None of the above that’s for sure….
