For this first post of 2019, I have decided to write about a couple of things, which, to be honest, were/are of such little significance to me personally, that I have until this point in time, not had cause to give them a moment of serious thought.

However, as they are still being used by those who prefer to dwell in some of the more murkier corners of the www, as a stick, [albeit more of a pathetically thin twig in reality] to try and take swipes at me with, I am going to offer an alternative [and true] version.

As with most things that people read on the interwebs, there is almost always another side to any story, and as is often the case, that other side of the story, although decidedly less shouty, and altogether more measured and rational in it’s telling, is usually overlooked.

This article may also fall victim to that scenario, coming as it does more than a couple of years after the actual events, but what the hell, I am going to write it anyway.

I shall begin by telling you why I finally decided to put this into the public domain, as its as good a place to start as any.

I was sent a link to a blog on or around the 20th December 2018, written by none other than Barbara Hewson on the 13th December , entitled ‘The Devil’s Cleaners – Part 1’, where Ms. Hewson has begun to lay out what, to her mind at least, appears to be every imaginable sleight that has been leveled against her, and two of her associates.

I used to have a modicum of respect for Ms. Hewson, as I felt that she really had some interesting things to say, and on the surface at least, came across as someone who was not easily fooled, and could easily hold her own against anybody.

As a Barrister, I also assumed that she was a highly-intelligent woman, and one not prone to ‘conspiracy-type beliefs’, who was a staunch advocate for those who had been wrongly accused, and was scathing in her many dealings with those she believed made false allegations.

At least that is what I thought.

In the above mentioned ‘The Devil’s Cleaners’, Ms. Hewson has made a number of claims, and in one paragraph she states:

‘Poulton inhabits a criminal milieu. She ran two troll groups on Twitter: one named Troll Patrol in conjunction with her (now former) partner Lee Taylor Ryan, the “Lotto Lag”; and another named Team Outlaw, run in conjunction with Roydon Jones aka Outlaw Jimmy, who has a conviction for malicious communications ….’

You see what I mean about ‘conspiracy-type’ beliefs?

I cannot of course comment about whether her claim about Lee Ryan is true or untrue, but what I can do, is categorically state, that there is not, nor has there ever been, a ‘Team Outlaw’ in any capacity, and especially not in the format that Ms. Hewson states as fact.

That fantasy claim has been doing the rounds online, ever since Sonia Poulton posted a single Tweet in or around 2013, which contained the hashtag #TeamOutlaw, as a response to a few people, myself included, who had taken it upon ourselves to defend her from a group of Twitter bullies.

There never was a ‘Troll Team’ or a ‘Team’ of any type, it was a complete fabrication, concocted by the same group that were harassing and bullying Ms. Poulton on Twitter.

It is a fantasy which ranks alongside the claim(s) that this site is being funded by, and run, by the Greater Manchester Police, and/or the British Security Services – as was recently alleged in a video that appeared on YouTube.

Ms. Hewson’s other claim is correct, however, I do have a conviction for malicious communication, it’s hardly a secret, I have never once denied it, but as Ms. Hewson appears to see it as something that she (and her associates) can use to define what kind of person I am, then you dear reader, are about to be told the real story.

The bizarre set of circumstances that led me to court, and the true details of the trial which handed down that conviction, have never before been made public, there has been an inordinate amount of hearsay, speculation and bullshit of course, but not a single, accurate, and honest account of what actually transpired.

Before I begin to lay that out for you, I will refer back to Ms. Hewson one more time, because even though I did once, as previously stated, have a modicum of respect for her, I remain somewhat puzzled by her behaviour.

I am perplexed by the way that she appears to despise those who make false and vexatious complaints, yet has [metaphorically] jumped headlong into a rather grotesque ménage à trois, with two of the most prolific and vexatious complainants that lurk online.

And I can state that with confidence, as I have been the recipient of a number of those entirely false and vexatious complaints/allegations, three of which, led to two arrests, and one which led to me being questioned under caution.

But that is another story altogether.

The true account of what led to my malicious communications trial, and ultimate conviction, will appear here in the next couple of days, and when you have read it, and digested the true facts, it will be your choice entirely as to whether you believe justice was indeed served, or something was really not quite right about the whole thing.


“Beware The False Allegation”

This is a response to all those who all those, on social media and elsewhere who are calling for another Inquiry into Historical Child Abuse.

An open invitation if you will, which invites you to discover for yourselves, some of the background which led to one of the previous, and indeed the biggest inquiries, that this country has witnessed thus far.

If anyone still has the slightest interest in the North Wales abuse story for example – I would not bother holding another Inquiry – I urge them to read instead, the minutely detailed and forensically researched book ‘The Secret of Bryn Estyn’ by Richard Webster.


It’s a veritable behemoth of a book, containing 722 fact-filled pages and will tell you everything you need to know – positively brimming with explicit evidence and facts.

Richard Webster is now dead, but his meticulously detailed research lives on – outlining indisputable proof and evidence, every date, day and time, statements from people both alive and dead – that, by the time you are only a few chapters in, you will know the truth about what really happened.

One thing is for certain – if there is going to a fresh investigation in regard to this particular historical inquiry – or any other, this book will be an invaluable resource, providing facts and information which can be easily confirmed by the records which still remain.

Plus, as it proves that so many ex-Bryn Estyn resident’s ‘accounts’ are undoubtably false and malicious, it clearly illustrates what can, and did actually happen when stories of alleged abuse become a “big media story” – as this was – albeit many years ago.

‘Pestered By The Press’ Chapter 41, Page 273

“When Steward’s (not his real name) refusal to release the newspaper documents is viewed in relation to the manifold inconsistencies these would have revealed, the case for doubting his claims seems almost complete. It is made almost unassailable when seen alongside his own declaration to the police on 24 August, that ‘at no time did Gordon Anglesea ever sexually abuse me’ and his suggestion that Dean Nelson ‘wanted me to say things which were not the truth’.

However, there was another important feature of the evidence which concerned the question of dates. Lee Steward had been at Bryn Estyn from 27 September 1977 until 22 May 1979. In his interview with Journalist Dean Nelson, he specifically said that Anglesea had abused him in ‘1977-8′; he told the police that the first incident had taken place in ‘late 1977′ and that the second incident was ‘a few months later’.

Yet the first connection Gordon Anglesea had with Bryn Estyn was when he was asked to set up the Home Office-run Wrexham attendance centre in September 1979. This was a centre to which delinquent young boys were sent for two hours at a time, for a maximum of 24 hours. Some of these boys were from Bryn Estyn. It was not until mid-November 1979 that Anglesea had first gone to Bryn Estyn itself, and it was not until September 1980 that Bryn Estyn became part of his ‘section’ within his duties as the operational inspector at Wrexham.

In short, Anglesea did not have any connection with Bryn Estyn until four months after Steward had left, and did not visit it until some two years after the date Steward gave for the first alleged incident.

“As in the case of Mark Humphreys, the allegations which Lee Stewart made against Gordon Anglesea could not possibly be true.”

As I clearly stated HERE on the Outlaw, in June 2013 – “What I will say however, is that my initial instincts were right and I still do not believe that the focus of any investigation into ‘Establishment Paedophile Rings’ and highly-placed Political figures should be directed at Bryn Estyn.”

I still stand by that, and will always maintain that the real story about systematic Child Abuse in North Wales is to be found elsewhere in the county of Wrexham.

Surely, simply reading a book which will furnish you with almost everything required – is preferable to wasting another £17.5 Million of public money on another Waterhouse-like inquiry isn’t it?
