Hollie Greig & Hampstead Hoaxes – Corbett Report Interview

I recently spoke with James Corbett of the Corbett Report about the Hollie Greig and Hampstead hoaxes. You can download the MP3 from CorbettReport.com or listen below:

Keelan Balderson of WideShut.co.uk joins the program today to discuss examples of child abuse witch hunts in the alternative media and how they can go very poorly. We examine the Hollie Greig case, where a Down’s syndrome girl was allegedly abused by a high-ranking pedophile ring for years, and how it spread through the alternative media without people verifying basic facts (like whether the victims were born at the time or whether the accused actually existed). We also talk about the recent allegations of child abuse in Hampstead, and what these stories tell us about how the alt media functions and how we can improve our own open source investigation into these topics.

    Oh boy/s, that quick post/wrong link, was this (on aangirfan):

    James R
    Excellent story Aangirfan, thanks.
    It was very disappointing to see the Hampstead abuse story completely dismissed for reasons that were unclear on the Corbett Report. It was especially disappointing that the Hampstead case was conflated with the Hollie Greig case, and dismissed without any reference to the evidence this conclusion was based upon. It left the impression that they had read about the story in the Mail and used that as the basis of their conclusion.
    It was pleasing then to hear a far longer more detailed and sympathetic examination of the case on the Kev Baker show. The case is discussed at around the fifteen minute mark of this for around ten minutes.

    In a couple hours, the sincere and open through the chattering and could be smug lot, will have their day on radio four. James and Keelan at least have the gumption and, (most of us appreciating…), the honesty, to suggest an alternative explanation. Division of opinion (at this level) mustn’t divide. Would we rather they didn’t express doubt, whist the majority in the broad camp are diplomatically ‘let’s wait and see’. WideShut has been a blessing and Corbett one of our best:

      The reasons for dismissing the Hampstead case are not unclear at all. There’s no evidence. It’s that simple really.

      And I was writing about the story long before the Mail.

        Course you were but – care or not – respect respect, there’s a lot of us out there, ‘believers’ that get your grief and angle, it’s easy to hear the testimonies of locals (bbc actors but…) crying innocence. We get it and we get you, thanks, that’s all, Mark

        • sunmoom

          I’m all ears …. who were the bbc actors?

            Parents (accused) comments were read by actors on the R4 broadcast, Mark

            Danthelockman posted a reply to Jacqui Farmer on Zeekly TV. People keep saying why haven’t the people accused of ritual abuse come forward. Dan has. And maybe others are about to sue the pants off the McKenzie Friends and publishers of private phone numbers/addresses and email contacts of the alleged baby eating cult.

            Daniel’s Locksmiths. I am the DanthelockmaN in this stupid ass video, let me first state this now.. I also Hate nonce’s and think they should be castrated then hung, they disgust me in every way possible, anyone who harms any child deserves a beating.

            Remove this Video now, this has my full name picture ofme, my wife and my boy.. if anything happens to my family because of this please believe me i will find the person that created this video, and hurt them.. believe me i am not a keyboard warrior.

            All you are doing here is trying to ruin good honest hardworking peoples lives with, rumours and the most unbelievable accusations, just so some dumb
            ass mckenzie lawyer can make a name for herself,, she will be a laughingstock.. I mean making shoes from babies skin… its a fucking shoe repairs not makers, we dont even make shoes with leather.. how are we gonna do it with skin?? Have any of you even seen the shop, where do you think we are skinning these babies??!!

            Right so lets tear this bullshit video apart Firstly i worked in the “lock & key shop” for 10 years, with George Michael the owner He has been in that shop for 30+ years, check the CCTV for as long as
            the underground has had it and you will see him in there everyday.. doesnt take much investigation to see that NOBODY messed up thetranscript, the Felix, Daniel and Max (you conveniently forgot to
            mention him) were stated by the children/child to be German/Belgian.. you conveniently changed that to suit you, where is proof of that fact?I have never met a felix and max in or around that shop, nor do i know anyone with that name AND what other Daniel do the children mention, ask anyone around the
            shop i am known as Danny anyway, but they do not mention another DANIEL..Another dumbfounded and made up LIE. And as for going through my friendlist and looking through my relatives, anyone with an
            ounce of common sense can see you are clutching at straws to try and make your video longer, i worked in Camden for 10 years, my family are from camden, all the other people who have been made up in this story
            happen to be from camden as well, im sure between 1000 people you are bound to make connections somewhere..

            The police havent contacted me at all, i went to them today to make a complaint.. they can see that this is all bull, the kids are fed words and encouraged what
            to say the whole video.. its the dopey mum who says Finchley road station before the daughter

            If anyone has anything to say to me, email me directly, you should be able to find the email because of
            this prick (Jacqui Farmer) that created this video
            Also be aware, i am already in discussions with my lawyer about suing every single person involved in manufacturing this story.

            DanthelockmaN, an honest man would do what you’ve done, addressed us. I didn’t expect a response, from anyone, let alone you. I don’t know what I’d write to you. I wonder what it would be like to meet for a coffee and confirm my sense, if anything carried conviction (actors aside) was you. Hold on, this must be resolved. You ask, ‘if anyone has anything to say to me’… Ok, you’re innocent? Apologies if you’re caught up in this but it isn’t the truthers who are prolonging it

    Keelan, I enjoyed this interview. Some interesting points to ponder vis the wider questions of MSM & Alt Media, though I thought you might have explored the questions of spook infiltration & controlled opposition a bit more. Re the two cases Hollie and Hamstead: I was surprised that you didn’t mention the common factor of Belinda McKenzie. Perhaps that was an editorial decision. Sorry I haven’t been participating much in the comments here recently but I’ll be catching up with your commentaries on this case.

    • Keelan Balderson

      Hi, yeah there are some things I wished I touched on and forgot about, it’s the nature of interviews really. It’s takes me long enough to build up the courage to do them lol.

      I did however just film some clips for a documentary where I talk about Belinda a bit more.

      Not sure when or if it will see the light of day, but I can always upload my portions if needs be.
