My computers have been acting very strangely, since the day belinda McKenzie made that remark about her clever webmaster called Ian being able to follow our electronic footprints. That sounds like hacking to me.
Now hacking is supposed to be illegal. No doubt if I did something like that the police would soon be banging on my door. But, for some strange reason, I don't seem to have access to the justice system if I am attacked. I appear to be some sort of one sided outlaw - expected to obey the laws of the country myself (which I endevour to do to the letter), but not protected myself by those very same laws. And that is weird.
Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to post one of the blog conversations I have been having recently, on Robert Greens blog.
Wednesday, February 15, 2012Trial on Friday, 17th February
This will be my last blog prior to the impending trial.
Since it is difficult to predict what may occur, I would again like to take this opportunity of thanking all of those wonderful people who have supported Hollie, Anne and me throughout this campaign and to those who have attended my many court hearings. To those of you who may be able to come along on Friday, I shall be most grateful and pleased to see you.
My fate is not in the hands of a jury, but of one man, Sheriff Principal Edward Bowen.
Since the trial, it has been discovered that this individual lacked the professional and personal integrity to divulge his relationship, for over ten years, on the board of an organisation with a fellow member who had been cited as a witness for the defence. This relationship on the board lasted until May last year, when Bowen and the cited witness left within 24 hours of each other. Thus, it is reasonable to believe that the two were at least, fairly well acquainted.
Moreover, on Bowen`s intercession, the witness, Elish Angiolini, was prevented from having to attend court and provide answers on oath under cross-examination, hence displaying the prospect of disadvantaging the defence. Given that justice needs to be seen to be done, it would be difficult to argue against the view that Sheriff Bowen was not competent to adjudicate at the trial, owing to a reasonable supposition that a conflict of interest may well be seen to exist.
A formal complaint has been lodged with the appropriate authorities, which has been formally acknowledged today and Bowen will be challenged in court in connection with his failure to disclose. One would hope that under Scottish Law, the requirement to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth in court extends to members of the judiciary.
Bowen`s conduct so far has been instrumental in my having a criminal record inflicted upon me and the prospect of a prison sentence, quite apart from the way my human rights have been persistently breached from the time of my initial arrest.
It may be a good time to note, in comparison, a few examples of how actual sex offenders in Scotland are treated.
This week it was announced that Liam Gibson, described as one of Scotland`s most notorious purveyors of child pornography, was spared a jail sentence despite Lothian & Borders Police discovering 50,000 images of child pornography at his home.
In 2009, Douglas Haggarty QC, a senior member of the Legal Aid Board with the responsibility and influence in deciding if I should be granted legal aid, was found to have committed a sexual act with a 17-year-old male prostitute in the public toilet of British Home Stores, St Enoch Centre, Glasgow on a Saturday afternoon at a time when the store was full of families out shopping. Mr Haggarty was not only spared prison, but was allowed to retain his lucrative job in a position of public trust.
In 2001, when Elish Angiolini was busy covering up over Hollie`s allegations, in an unrelated case, a 22-year-old man who admitted to raping a 10-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy was allowed to walk free. This was reported in The Times and The Telegraph in May of that year. Angiolini was subsequently forced into a public apology for her incompetence. This monumental blunder did not prevent her climbing to the highest office in the justice system.
Then, of course, we can mention the repeated Grampian Police and Crown Office failings over the Hollie Greig case. At the outset, Hollie`s father should have been arrested and had his computer seized, as Dr Frances Kelly`s medical examination, accepted by Grampian Police, supported Hollie`s allegations within three weeks of Hollie first making them in May 2000.
All this may be of some interest when my sentence is announced. In this Kafkaesque country, where right is wrong and wrong is right , the indications are that anyone who exposes police failures and tries to protect children from being raped is likely to be much more seriously dealt with than the actual perpetrators.
The eminent Ian Hamilton QC described the way that Scotland is currently being governed as being akin to fascism. It is an opinion that is not easy to disagree with.
Scotland is a fine country with some of the most decent and humane people you are likely to find anywhere on Earth. It is so sad that its governance has fallen into the hands of a cabal whose members have characters that are diametrically at odds with the best traditions of those of the overwhelming majority of Scottish people.
Thank you all and God bless you.

Robert, i have met you several times in the past, and i know your heart is in the right place. Unfortunately, there are those in society, even though they have children themselves show little respect for them their position comes first.
What does that say about them? We know that if Hollie had been the child of someone influential, there would be no stop to find and prosecute the culprits of their Childs abuse.
Sadly, the celebrities who exist today and who many have come from nothing have done nothing to help highlight the treatment of ordinary people, but they will not refuse their money. God Bless Robert.

Robert, from one who has walked a remarkably similar path to yours - including arrest, prosecution and imprisonment at the hands of an overtly corrupted and politicised prosecution system and judiciary - know that you are in my thoughts.
I was jailed for two months - at the hands of a recently appointed magistrate who had been amongst the very public officials I had been exposing via public interest disclosures for failing to deal properly with child protection failures.
Of course it can't be anything other than a daunting prospect at first - but if it's any consolation, you will find prison not so bad. My fellow inmates knew who I was and why I had been jailed - and they were all excellent company.
You will discover far more basic, plain decency on the average prison wing than would ever be encountered amongst politicians, prosecutors, lawyers or judges.
On one occasion I was driven in shackles from the prison to make an appeal concerning the existence of a key witness the Jersey judiciary had concealed from my defence. On that occasion I said to the court, "after now having spent so much time in the close company of liars, spivs, villains, con-men and gangsters - being in prison is actually quite a refreshing break after all those years in politics."
My appeal - even though starkly evidenced - was rejected; but, hey - we have to laugh at these clowns. More and more ordinary people are starting to see - through cases such as ours - that the emperors of the British judiciary can be very naked indeed.

JoFeb 17, 2012 02:27 AM
I have been a supporter of yours from day one. In the early days I never imagined what was to follow. It is such malevolent conduct on the part of the establishment as well as being unlawful.
After my experiences with a certain group of people, I have often said there are more honest people in prison. Those that parade around as pillars of society and purport to be "fine upstanding citizens" are generally rotten to the core. They look after each other at the expense of the honest individuals no matter what.
It appears that the powers that be in Jersey and Scotland all prefer to wash whiter than white than to deal with these sickos appropriately.
I think you deserve recognition for being tough enough to stand up to them. May you get justice for the victims and for yourself.
Falsely AccusedFeb 16, 2012 12:14 AM
Mr Green may be acting with the best of intentions in trying to expose a failure to gain justice for Hollie Greig. However, speaking as someone who was falsely accused of rape 20 years ago, his actions in accusing people of being paedophiles when he has produced no evidence of dates, locations etc is utterly reprehensible. He ought to consider himself lucky that there is not a more serious criminal charge available than Breach of the Peace.
TWO WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT.
RepliesjohnFeb 16, 2012 12:32 PM
I presume then that your case was thoroughly investigated by the Police, unlike Hollie Greigs. This is the whole point about Robert's actions, a proper investigation by the Police into the allegations needs to be made. If the people named are innocent, then they have nothing to fear. Of course a lot of the evidence has now disappeared by now, but a Leopard can't change it's spots.
Falsely AccusedFeb 17, 2012 12:19 AM
My case was investigated by the police, Hollies was not. That was wrong. It was also wrong for Mr Green to name the alleged paedophiles. It adds nothing to the case to have named them rather than to have said x number of people were alleged to have been paedophiles and were not investigated. Other than saying that Hollie named these people, Mr Green has not produced any evidence against the vast majority of the people named.

For anyone else who may have been affected by false allegations. Unfortunately we are not living in a cartoon world of goodies and baddies. Real life is a hell of a lot more complicated than that, and rather than trying to whip up hysteria online, people might think about soberly reflecting on their own actions and motivations in this case.

A WITNESS told a murder trial yesterday he watched a man “crumple” during an attack by three of the accused.
Colin McGregor said he had seen the man punched, kicked and knocked down with a bike as one of the attackers called him a “paedo”.
The 24-year-old was giving evidence at the High Court in Aberdeen at the trial of five people accused of killing 57-year-old Gordon Morrice by assaulting him at an Aberdeen playing field.

A man was murdered in Aberdeen in June 2010 by a lynch mob who accused him of being a paedophile. This was just a few months after Mr Green's arrest for making allegations that a number of people were paedophiles.
Falsely AccusedFeb 16, 2012 12:42 AM
The unfortunate reality is that while the public will be sympathetic to rape victims the issue of false allegations is largely swept under the carpet. You will never see a plot line about false accusations in EastEnders.
I think that the majority of people who make false allegations are probably damaged and vulnerable and have often been abuse victims themselves in the past.
For people in my situation it is very hurtful to see Mr Green treated as some sort of hero when he has named people as paedophiles yet not produced any evidence. I think he is quite right to expose what happened to Hollie but why did he have to name names ?
It is because of the stigma attached to being accused of being a rapist that I do not post under my real name.

I haven't made any false accusations. What would be the point of a Christian doing that? God sees everything, at the end of the day God will judge everything.
I doubt that there are many people who make false allegations about rape. It would be the worst way ever of making money fraudulently, so you would have to be pretty stupid to go down that road. It is so much more profitable to make money from porn and there's less chance of getting jailed for it nowadays as well.

Zoompad - I did not mean to suggest in anyway that you made false allegations and I am sorry for not making this crystal clear.
Nobody can say either how many people are raped or how many people make false allegations of rape. In any case, whatever the numbers are, both are very serious crimes which seem to have a long-lasting effect on the victims.
NigelFeb 16, 2012 11:54 AM
But people do make false allegations all the time. Maliciously, and there are a lot of reasons for it not only the belief that they will be compensated. That does not mean that you did make any false allegations not at all, just that it does not help the argument to deny the sheer volume of wrongful accusations. And the family courts are riddled with them.
ZoompadFeb 16, 2012 01:06 PM
Yes, people do make false allegations all the time, like the paedophiles who swear blind that they didn't rape children, and that the child was gagging for it. False allegations like that are rife.

Stuart, I've said this privatly to you, but I'm saying it to you in front of witnesses now. You made a mistake in trusting John Hemmings MP.
For Heavens sake, the Orees were ganging up on me for two years on Mothers for Justice, because I was posting the TRUTH about Richard Gardner and Ralph Underwager. They also went over to my YouTube channel to pour out they hatred on there as well. They called me a nutter, Zoomfreak, lesbian, man hater, they hated me because I had found out about who invented False Memory Syndrome and Parental Alienation Syndrome.
John Hemmings was also on Mothers for Justice and other forums where they were pouring out their venom towards me. Stuart, if it would have been you, you would not have allowed me to be bullied so. The difference between you and John hemming MP is that you are a decent and truthful man and he is not!
ZoompadFeb 16, 2012 04:10 AM
You would have to be stark staring bonkers to make false allegations of rape in this day and age, seeing as so few rape allegations - even child rape - don't get investigated properly.
When you have judges who think that buying a new bicycle for a child who has been raped is going to compensate for the awful crime.
Robert, you should look back at who has been advising you these last few years. I will tell you what these devils do.
They worm their way in to a genuine campaign, and they get key people to believe certain things. They tried to do exactly the same to me on Mothers for Justice - it was the people who had been caught up in Operation Ore. They kept posting that Gordon Brown was one of the people netted in the investigations, and also Tony Blair. They were very insistant about these allegations.
I did not believe at all that Gordon Brown was a paedophile, not ever. I must admit, I did start to waver about the accusations about Tony Blair, but I don't believe that now either. But they were desperatly trying to make us believe those things. I think what they wanted was to goad me into making false allegations, then, POUNCE! They would have had me, proved me to be a liar and a fantasist.

Matt Quinn is being rather hypocritical in alleging that Ms MacKenzie is acting illegally in her actions with respect to Robert's trial!
Matt Quinn has himself broken the law in conducting a blog commentary on a case that is currently "sub judice", and as such is in contempt of court.
What will "your" defence be to that, Mr Quinn?
Take the plank out of your own eye Matt.
ps. Your knowledge of the law is laughable. Don't try and set yourself up as an authority here. You're just embarrassing yourself.....
RepliesClydeside TelevisionFeb 17, 2012 05:43 AM
Rantlet - There is no plank in MY eye... YOU though obviously have a picture to paint, and agenda to push - and perhaps a bit more studying to do!
I'd refer you to Regina -v- Felixstowe Justices ex parte Leigh  1 QB 582
And you should note that contemporaneous reporting of events in the public court is perfectly permissible, encouraged even; indeed it is a central pillar of the process. Court reports may cover only what the court has seen and heard and must be accurate and fair... but they are NOT barred!
So... MY defence 'to that'? (ROFLMAO) Simple...
"a substantial risk of serious prejudice" to the proceedings... That is the line that can't be crossed when reporting active cases. And as this was a summmary process it's actually quite a well defined line... More of a low wall in fact!
Professional judges are considered largely to be immune from being prejudiced by what they see and hear outside of the courtroom... Summary trial = professional judge.
Go back and examine my Blog. Pre trial I simply say that I am not aware of any evidence that meets the mens rea and actus reus of the charge... And call for the charges to be dropped.
Pre-trial my blog in fact simply poses questions as to the basis on which the prosecution against Green was constructed. It comments and reacts to material coming forth from both Greg Lance-Watkins and Green's camp...
Much of which actually has absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming trial...
At no point have I named names, examined prosecution evidence etc... In fact there is nothing really beyond a general examination of the charge of Breach of The Peace and how, in general, it needs to be defended...
And there is absolutely nothing beyond that general examination directly relatated to the case... In fact my blog in its entirety simply examines matters that have been published and written by other people...
This IS actually quite deliberate...
Once the trial is underway you will find reports largely reflecting on information which:
a) Has already been heard in open court...
b) Has already been reported by other outlets...
Again; I was VERY careful to ensure my reports were accurate, contemporary to the past proceedings etc etc...
Once a person has been convicted, whether or not they have been sentenced, proceedings cease to be ‘active' and there is much more scope for commenting on the proceedings and making comments about the convicted person/publishing material which it was not possible to disseminate before or during the trial.
- That fact that I might be 'embarssing myself' in the eyes of uneducated, dishonest, damages and downright stupid individuals really doesn't trouble me in the slightest...
"If it weren't for Robert and his brave and busy efforts to get this case known, you, Matt Quinn, wouldn't have the knowledge of this case to spend your feckless days typing illegal and contemptuous accounts of it on your blog.
Am I right?"
Not by a VERY long chalk! -In fact only a fraction of the material avaialble to me has come from within the 'Green' camp... And much of what does emerge is not remotely accurate...
But if YOU feel I have broken any laws then I am sure you know how a telephone works - So just you toddle off and phone the Feds if you like...

Interesting name "Pyrite", Malcolm Webster was reportedly called "Pyro" in the scouts due to his love of fires.
Websters first wife was murdered by him in Aberdeen in a car which was then set on fire.
Hollies uncle Roy was also found dead in a burning car in Nov 1997 in Aberdeen.
A nurse and off shore rig worker happened upon him and tried to save him apparently. Hollie's 'father' worked on a rig and Webster was a nurse.
Some of those named by Hollie as her abusers where friends of Websters and appeared at his trial.
For whatever reason senior police didn't want these two deaths investigated.
Yes Alex Salmond Scotland must have more independence - so that your government, senior police, Crown prosecutors and 'justices' can carry on protecting 'elite' murderers and child abusers without any interference from London.
What about Lockerbie and Dunblane? Cover-ups of the most diabolical of crimes.
JoFeb 18, 2012 02:07 AM
I spoke to Robert on 9th February last. This was to with him well and that justice would prevail. I never imagined that the system would be so perverse and corrupt as to imprison him for 12 months.
That is the reason I said that we should have a party when it is over, I thought this would be on 18 February when Robert would be over his terrible ordeal. Hindsight tells me that I was far too optimistic, especially in view of the characters involved in this case. They are the lowest of the low life scum on the planet.
I have seen that Robert is being held in HMP Aberdeen. The address is: Craiginches, 4 Grampian Palce, Aberdeen AB11 8FN.
It is usually the case that you have to provide a prison number to write, or make contact.
Robert did say that if this happened, he would go on hunger strike. Apart from this, in view of the obvious involvement of the Freemasons in this all the way through and the fact that Aberdeen is a Freemason infested swamp, makes me fear for his safety.
We need to organise something to make the mainstream media report this. Any ideas?
The British state cannot criticise other so called "repressive" states as Bahrain, Syria, Libya etc when it is no better itself. Robert is a political prisoner.

Robert agreed to trial by Sherriff, not jury, at his hearing in March last year. That was clearly a mistake. What caused him to take that decision is another matter.
RepliesClydeside TelevisionFeb 18, 2012 04:21 AM
He AGREED did he?
"“As has already been noted, the choice of court and type of procedure under which to bring a prosecution is entirely within the discretion of the prosecutor. The accused/victim has no right to object to this decision. Thus the accused cannot elect to have a jury trial in Scotland, as he would be able to in England and Wales, at least in relation to certain offences.”
“The choice between solemn or summary procedure and of the court in which prosecution is to take place is almost entirely within the discretion of the prosecutor. One exception to this is that murder, treason, rape, breach of duty by magistrates and deforcement of court messengers must be prosecuted under solemn procedure in the High Court.
There are also certain common law offences that cannot be tried in the district court – these are all relatively serious offences, such as culpable homicide (manslaughter), robbery, fire-raising (arson), certain aggravated assaults, theft by housebreaking (burglary) and uttering forged documents.
In addition to this, certain offences that have been created by statute can, under the terms of that statute, only be prosecuted under either summary or solemn procedure. For example, it is the case that many minor road traffic offences can be prosecuted only under summary procedure.”

"The prosecution decide which procedural route the case will follow. There is no right in Scotland for an accused person to ask for trial by jury."
Breach of the peace generally IS a summary cause to come before the court... There is NOTHING remotely unusual about Green's trial in this respect.
Elsewhere I've seen a coment from (IIRC) Belinda McKenzie that id a certain crank quasi-lawyer had been involved there would have been 'none of this summary trial nonsense' - Complete and utter cast-iron bull!

"Unfortunate and Unnecessary" was the comment I saw from one legal expert on Robert's conviction.
It could and SHOULD have been avoided. The erroneous decision on Robert's part was; instead of taking the less glamorous but cogent route towards PROPERLY resisting prosecution and getting Hollie's case on a rational footing... Where it COULD be reported and explored.
He was persuaded to play to the conspiracy circus crowd...
It's hard to work out how or if the now several and various matters can be taken forward rationally now...

6MCK, I could ask you the same question. Who are you?
You already know who I am. I am Barbara Richards, a lady who was unfortunate enough to end up in a Pindown childrens home on a place of safety order, after trying to run away from being abused. I got persecuted because of being a Pindown survivor, I can't get proper NHS treatment, because of the cover up, because people instead of being sorry about what happened to us who were in Pindown they tried to cover it all up and wrote bad things in our records so that meant we got treated as if we were evil from birth, and I even got sent for "therapy" to one of the places where I was abused as a child, which ended up in me having a massive panic attack and being taken to hospital. And I had a solicitor called Richard Wise who was trying to help all us Pindown survivors, I just wanted a normal or normalish life, without having to be terrified all the time, but Richard Wise died before he could help me, while I was being persecuted in the secret courts. I got sucked in to the UK Column lies about them caring about stopping child abuse, and I am not very happy about being stitched up and lied to.
I am asking some perfectly reasonable questions here. Robert always said he was trying to stop paedophilia and child abuse. Why are you swearing at me for just wanting to know where he is, and wanting to check that he is ok? All I want to do is write to the prison governor and check he really is ok, and here you are having a right go at me, and I dont know who you are! Who are you?

i.e. Buchanan et all using the BOP charge to effectivedly silence green when the perfectly adequate civil remedy of defamation was available.
This actually flies in the face of stated UK policy which has been moving away from criminal defamation where it exists...
So; certainly - despite my criticism of Green in not presenting a cogent defence - the authorities are certainly to be criticised in terms of an attack on freedom of speech...

Could others please phone and ask to know where he is and how we can contact him? Number is 0845 600 5700.
When he does arrive at Craiginches if indeed that is where he’s being sent he will be given a prison number. To communicate with anyone in prison you always need their prison number.

Reply to Clydeside Television re Roberts agreeing to Jury trial.
He failed to challenge the Procurator Fiscals decision to change the charges to ones which did not allow Jury Trial. He sat looking at a stained glass window above the Sherriffs chair when this was agreed to by his Advocate. He had the option of sacking his Advocate and making the challenge, which he had agreed to do before the hearing. He failed to do so. Several supporters made an outburst in the public gallery which he disregarded. The reasons why he behaved like this are a matter of speculation at the present time and are being investigated.
RepliesClydeside TelevisionFeb 18, 2012 11:21 AM
In fact understanding was acknowledged by his avocate... Neither an accused person nor his representative has any right or say with what they are actually charged. He could have sacked the advocate yes; what difference would that have made?
ANOTHER delay? ANOTHER Legal Aid application? The PF still calls the tune I'm afraid no matter what your extensive viewing of "Rumpole" might indicate to the contrary...
"The prosecution decide which procedural route the case will follow. There is no right in Scotland for an accused person to ask for trial by jury."
It would be ENTIRELY the wont of the prosecution as to whether the process was solemn or summary. Now; you can cross check that with as many sources as you like and you'll find I'm correct...

RantletFeb 18, 2012 09:48 AM
Matt Quinn is wrong to suggest that Robert was/is in breach of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 with regard to naming Hollie Greig.
Under the Act, a victim of a sexual assault can waive their right to anonymity, and therefore allow the reporting of their name and other details that they wish to be in the public domain. In this case, this is exactly what has happened. Hollie and/or her mother, acting as legal guardian, have permitted their names to be used publicly by Robert and other anti-abuse campaigners.
I thought it was important to point out the factual and legal mistakes Matt Quinn is employing to smear Robert.
RepliesClydeside TelevisionFeb 18, 2012 11:11 AM
Hollie may well have given up that right - What about the other alleged co-abused who were also named?
Remember; protection applies to both victims and alleged victims no matter who made the allegation...

I spoke to Greg Lance Watkins to get an idea of what he wanted, why he was being very rude and so on (Facebook), this was about a year or two ago - he told me Ann was a neurotic and that the authorities only wanted what's best for Hollie. He was convinced Hollies mum was the problem. He told me he had advanced cancer. It's possible he was involved initially to elicit as much information as possible from Hollie in order to put it to the other side, the evidence? I hope the truth will out, I do not believe Hollie COULD lie and I too have been terrorised by authorities, and they took my child in a similar situation, so I do believe them both and believe Mr.Green must appeal until all is in open court, so journalists will be able to report it all. It could be a good thing this outcome, as it opens the door to go public - though Mr.Green must be feeling terrible, please keep working on it, truth will win eventually.
RepliesClydeside TelevisionFeb 18, 2012 03:52 PM
Anne - to paraphrase her - could be the maddest person on the planet. That doesn't change the fact her little girl WAS raped... One or a hundred times makes no difference in terms of the horror of this crime.
My own blog exposed Watkins as a Fake and a liar... In some detail. 'Advanced Cancer'? It's a pity his clinicians are bound to confidentiality rules. Watkins was/is simply aggrieved that his fradulent back story was ripped to shreds.
Unfortunately Mr Green has no grounds for an appeal. The plain truth is Mr Green didn't defend the charges - He tried instead to use the court as a platform to air his grievances... That was never going to happen! One of the Sheriff's DUTIES is to keep the trial relevant and bring it to a speedy conclusion...
He played straight into their hands!
- As for reporting? So long as material such as that I gave the link to is promoted - The mainstream media just don't dare touch the Hollie Greig case.
The whole case needs to be recovered from the realms of ridiculous conspiracy theory before it can be tackled - Unfortunately it's gone from the grasp of certain people who in my opinion had the protection of paedophiles as their driving force to those who want to flot T-shirts, Mugs, conferences...

I agree. The question is why?
Clydeside TelevisionFeb 18, 2012 05:05 PM
Two possible explanations in my view...
1) He's in it for the money and has been working towards a place in the highly lucrative conspiracy theory hall of fame.
2) He's easily lead, possibly watched too much Ally McBeal in his time. And was lead by the nose firstly by a man with the protection of perverts as his agenda... And once HE was out the way by others who saw the commercial potential in where the wreckage of the Hollie Greig case lay...
And lets not forget a vicious and corrupt 'justice' system up here that railroaded him on this 'piss poor' BOP charge...
LUDICROUS that he's gone down for it...
IMHO he should have taken the drop at the first hearing, gone for a plea in mitigation,copped for the fine, regrouped and got the whole Hollie case on a strictly legit basis...
SarahFeb 18, 2012 04:09 PM
I wonder why telling everyone that he has advanced (terminal as in dying?) cancer was relevant to the hdj campaign when glw was fronting it? To gain sympathy perhaps for when he behaved badly? Various individuals I can think of have been declared to have terminal cancer (meaning that they are dying?) so that theirs and others close to them bad behaviour will be overlooked or not questioned.
Corrie did a storyline not so long ago on a man who tried to con his estranged wife that the cancer he was diagnosed with wasn't getting any better and that he was dying, when in truth the cancer had been cleared and he was ok. He was found out in the end.

Thought better of my last post - TMI ;-)
Lets face it - Watkins has a long history of lying about his background!
Watkins was very fond of tormenting people by claiming he could access their medical records... And he's never liked his own medicine.
Now; Corrie did indeed run that storyline... And another more recently about accessing medical records...
Imagine another fictional storyline in Corrie about someone with a long history of UTI's - thanks mainly to their emmm - 'preferences'! - Norris for instance; something a bit 'closeted' there? Was there a 'Basil' in that soap opera?
Kidney disease is one of the possible outcomes... They were very quick to whip one kidney out a few years back. Nasty but rarely life-threatening... Then there's prostate trouble; that's nasty too! - TURP! Sounds painful...

"Thought better of my last post "
Very wise, but not fast enough
Still waiting to see a photo of what you look like Mr Matt Quinn.
I've been trying to contact my broadband supplier about the weird way my computers have been playing up. I want to know if I have been hacked, as Belinda McKenzie said something a few days ago to give rise to suspicions that I have, and since she said that I have had a heck of a struggle getting online. I can't get through to my Broadband supplier, as every time I phone them I get put through to some loud music (Oasis I think, it's dreadful whoever it is) and left to have my ears blasted out. So I am going to have to write to them instead.
Clydside Television. With my limping computer access, not being able to access certain sites, weird behaviour of my computers ect, I am doing my best, but I simply cannot find any television programmes that this company has made!
Now that is like a pub with no beer. Weird.

"Watkins was very fond of tormenting people by claiming he could access their medical records"
And I had a woman connected to him who sent me emails threatening to post my records online. She ranted that I hadn't been abused, and wanted to post my records online to prove it. The only problem with that, is that my records clearly show that I was. NOT raped in the Pindown "home" - but I never made false allegations that I had been! I assume that is the lack of honesty you were referring to earlier, Matt Quinn, as you still haven't justified your slanderous remark, have you?
Very easy for someone to get access to someone elses records if they trick them into trusting them, by pretending to help them.
There's been a lot of trickery going on though, hasn't there, Matt Quinn?
I'd really love to see a photo of you. Can't understand why you are so shy, you're in the media business!

"YOU madam are utterly SELFISH and SELF CENTRED - and THAT is what you're just not being honest with yourself about - because if you WERE honest with yourself YOU just wouldn't act that way!!!"
Like I said, I have PTSD, the fallout of years of abuse. Blaming me for that, you might as well blame Hollie for having Downs Syndrome.
But I think you threw that remark in because you thought better of what you were going to throw at me, because that would have revealed far too much about yourself and your real agenda, and, more importantly, your sources of information.
Us Pindown and institutional child abuse survivors are like birds with broken wings - we may not be able to fly, but we can still squark very loudly, and peck!
