And we remember those responsible for your death. Never to be forgotten.
And probably Farewell from us too. Job done (unless they float back up again).
In September 2012 we launched this blog purely as a means to expose a pair of sick trolls using the names Roxanne Summers and Heather Jones. Not being sure at the time whether Summers and Jones were real identities, we incorrectly referred to them as ‘she’ in the purely feminine sense. How wrong we were.
Though their behaviour – and that of some very willing accomplices – has been disgusting, this was only ever intended to be a brief and temporary taste of their own medicine, and for a while it turned into a hilarious pantomime with more dumb characters and drama queens than a series of TOWIE.
But in the end, sadly, it exposed the true nature of some vile people and the lengths they were prepared to go in order to harm one particular family, including a young girl, and ultimately an innocent dog.
Lennox would probably be alive today if it wasn’t for the hate campaign waged against him – all the time falsely disguised as ‘concern’ for his welfare – with the sole intention of destroying his family.
That hate campaign began first with Sandie Lightfoot, quickly followed by Sarah Gunther and Peter Tallack, backed to the hilt by their good friends Mel Page, Melanie Rushmore and Tina Delaney. After that, the rest of the dross attached themselves like leeches.
Admittedly we relished turning the tables, exposing their spiteful and often elaborate lies, and it was a pleasure to see them scuttle away, one by one.
Bullying is cowardly and mindless at the best of times, but it’s anyone’s guess what really possessed a twisted collection of morons to attack Lennox’s family. It could be boiled down to the poisonous Lightfoot’s personal vendetta against them, coupled by the family’s shrewd refusal to accept a self-promoting, disingenuous offer of help from animal-abuser and habitual-liar Sarah Gunther. Then came the corrupt testimonies of Lightfoot and Tallack (perjury). But none of that really explains why so many others climbed aboard the gut wagon to intimidate and bully Len’s family – and every single one of them did just that.
We hope that, with the invaluable help of our friends and supporters, we have managed to ensure that Lightfoot, Tallack, Gunther, Page, Rushmore, Phillips, Delaney and the rest of the Hate Campaign will always be remembered for what they are; vindictive, dishonest and cunning.
We will never forget you Lennox. In spite of – or perhaps because of – your tragic and wholly avoidable treatment and death, you will always remain a gentle and beautiful ambassador for all innocent victims of a BullShit Law.
And we will never forget you, sweet, gentle Fudge, unbelievably just five months old when seized and killed – yet another faultless target for callous, spiteful Jobsworths and Trolls, who saw you and your mum as another mark for their twisted malice.
Lennox would have been Ten Years Old Today.
Another year has gone by with Breed Specific Legislation having claimed so many other victims.
The only difference being, those victims were not the target of a vicious hate campaign by people with the morals and social skills of a gnat.
This year we ask you to remember that just because the vendetta against Lennox and his family happened in the past, it doesn’t mean it should be forgotten, nor does it mean that the people involved in it, even if to a lesser degree, should ever be forgotten for their part in the cowardly bullying of a family, including a young child.
The worst offenders, excluding Lightfoot and Tallack, hiding behind various aliases were:
L to R: Melanie RUSHMORE Bullbreed Advisory; Mel PAGE (aka Heather Jones / Ann Banford) Deed not Breed; Andrea PHILLIPS WAGS / Deed not Breed; Tina (sometimes Michelle) DELANEY (Furness); Sarah GUNTHER
The fact Lightfoot uses a tape measure to ‘type’ apparently is a great source of amusement to these charmers. No need to try and illustrate their sick mentality with words, they do that very nicely all on their own:
That particular post was aimed at Lennox’s family and their supporters and Fudge’s mum.
Today we also remember Fudge, another sweet and gentle girl, another tragic victim of BSL and another innocent target for the Anti-Save Lennox Hate Campaign.
And finally, we would like to extend sincere and deepest sympathy to Zimmy’s family.
Probably not as fast as Page and Rushmore. To be fair, they’ve had prior experience.
On this occasion …
Yesterday we read a statement on the EGAR Facebook page regarding a court case in which the owner of the rescue had pleaded guilty to an 'error of judgement'. This was the first time we and clearly the vast majority of people had heard of ANY case against the rescue for any reason.
We have never had any reason to believe that there were issues with any of the animals there and had ourselves, along with many other organisations and authorities, sent several dogs to the rescue. We know the whereabouts of all of 'our' dogs and have been kept updated and know that they are fit, well and in good homes.
We have seen a number of photographs being circulated that were allegedly taken at EGAR. We took the decision to make no comment until official statements were released by both parties concerned. We understand that they were taken at an old block of kennels that had previously not been in use for a number of years and are located at an address entirely separate from the registered address of the rescue.
We don't know what happened, or why and we certainly weren't aware of any issues whatsoever prior to yesterday's statement. EGAR have rescued rehabilitated and rehomed hundreds of animals over the years, however the conditions shown in photographs released by the GSPCA today are clearly entirely unsuitable and shocking. We were only made aware of the legal action yesterday on reading the statement posted by EGAR themselves, and confirmed in today’s statement from the GSPCA We have nothing more to add as we know no more than anyone else and it seems less than some.”
There’s no honour among thieves – they hung Gunther out to dry to save their own skins – and they’ve done it before→ [link].
Perhaps Gunther will return the compliment.
Page and Rushmore claim to have known Gunther for the past ten years but also say they don’t actually know her. It’s always a bit dicey making it up as you go along. You’d think Page would have learnt a lesson.
By their own admission, in the entire ten years, Page and Rushmore have never met Sarah Gunther nor have they set foot anywhere near her ‘registered address‘ (let alone the spare one she had up the road). Their only contact with her was virtual, via forums and other social media, but that didn’t stop them sending vulnerable dogs to her, encouraging public donations and giving her a glowing character reference.
In their own defence they claim the PSNI and ISPCA also sent dogs to EGAR but, as we recently told The Lav, there’s no evidence to show that anyone inside the PSNI or ISPCA took part in the Save Lennox bashing.
You couldn’t make it up – having never clapped eyes on Sylvia Sarah Gunther, Page, Rushmore, Phillips and the rest of the HC, without any hesitation whatsoever, backed that vile female to the hilt for years, including orchestrating the witch hunt of Lennox’s family, friends and supporters, entirely based on what Gunther and Lightfoot told them.
Page and Rushmore were certainly cosy with Gunther – a couple of months after registering Deed not Breed as a company in July 2007 (06325487), Gunther announced how proud she was to be a founder member of Deed not Breed Ireland:
In a carefully worded attempt at damage limitation to their abysmal reputations, Deed not Breed say they ‘understand that (the photographs) were taken at an old block of (disused) kennels at another location‘ — Well, that’s alright then, just so long as the dead dogs belonging to Gunther weren’t found at her ‘registered address‘! Not the most cold and stupid thing they’ve ever said in their defence, but it’s not far off.
“This was the first time we ….. had heard of ANY case against the rescue for any reason.”
Well, if you’re drowning in your own duplicity, you may as well go for broke.
We all knew, and so did many others (including Page and Rushmore) that Gunther had received a visit from the GSPCA in 2013, which culminated in the court case on 9th July 2014.
In any case, it’s a foregone conclusion that Gunther would have covered her backside and told them, because she knew her secret was already out —
In fact, we covered it briefly in September last year – [ link ]
Page and Rushmore knew about that visit and the court case, and they couldn’t fail to know she’d been raided before. So common was that knowledge that even we knew the court case had been postponed at least twice, and we certainly weren’t privy to exclusive information – it was out there for anyone to find.
However, it’s highly unlikely they knew what was really going on at EGAR because, as contemptible and conniving as Page and Rushmore can be, we don’t believe those traits extend to dogs in general (with the exceptions of Lennox and Fudge unfortunately), but the fact is they admit to relying on other people for testimonials about Gunther over the past ten years.
For someone they’ve never allegedly met face to face, they certainly did a good job of singing her praises, based on other people’s recommendations.
Why were they so willing to believe everything Gunther said? Either because they were more personally acquainted with her than they admit or, more likely, because it suited their spiteful characters, which accounts for the close friendships they have with Lightfoot, Tallack and Delaney.
A better matched bunch of fishwives we’ve yet to encounter.
According to Page and Rushmore they always knew the dogs sent to Gunther were safe. !?Since they’ve never been to EGAR, how is that possible?
Maybe Lightfoot told them after her visit south of the border last year, when she and Gunther organised a photoshoot:This is the much-touted Bruce.
Fortunately for Bruce, Gunther used him as a cash-cow; a means to reap publicity and donations, hence the reason he is healthy and happy. Lucky Bruce.
Not so lucky this much-publicised foal:
Gunther wasted no time in using this little animal for her own purposes. After gaining praise and admiration for her ‘selfless act of kindness‘ rescuing a foal the mother allegedly had rejected, she stuck him in a crate in a home with heavy smokers, several dogs, cats and Anyone’s Guess what else while she spent her days trolling Facebook.
This poor mite died shortly after that photo was taken. The cause of death (according to Gunther) was respiratory complications.
It’s true that very young foals don’t do well without mum, and Gunther claimed he already had health issues, but this little man had no chance once he fell into her mucky hands. He was just another victim used by Gunther to gain sympathy and support, for herself.
Gunther was never equipped to take on a sickly or orphaned foal, and she knew it, but instead of asking for advice or, better still, allowing someone more qualified to take him because her own knowledge and set-up was totally inadequate, she simply saw another opportunity to boost her warped ego and bank balance, and this tiny animal’s fate was sealed.
Which brings us back to Page and Rushmore‘s previous solidarity with Gunther. Could it be that Lightfoot assured them all was well and dogs sent to EGAR were in good hands? And would that be the same Lightfoot who got away with perjuring herself in court; the same Lightfoot who stalked Lennox’s family before and after his death?
Actually no, because Lightfoot met Gunther at a pre-arranged venue far away from EGAR’s location. In fact the meeting place was so random, the Bruce photoshoot took place in a car park!
Similarly, Rushmore‘s husband Steve Rushy and his mate Ted Ismay had the chance to inspect EGAR when they dropped five puppies off in 2012:
Again, this was another pre-arranged venue, nowhere near Gunther’s EGAR location. Five vulnerable puppies, just dropped off to people they didn’t know from Adam. They didn’t even meet Gunther.
A golden opportunity missed yet again – all that way just to get tanked up and bladdered.
On the one hand Page and Rushmore plead ignorance based on how unreasonable it is to expect them to know what went on at EGAR, and on the other hand they apparently have such strict principles and moral codes:
Like we said, you couldn’t make it up.
MIchelle Delaney aka Tina Delaney Animal Welfare Newham
The Lav is blocked, owing to a recent bulky flush – something to do with Gunther‘s not-really-secret Secret coming out.
Looks like the following screenshots are all that’s left of The Lav’s ‘We Love EGAR‘ :
(Sylvia) Sarah Gunther is currently more well known than she’s ever been, and the evidence of her behaviour you’re all seeing now was obvious to many long ago.
The present worry is for the animals left in Gunther’s possession, given that it’s very likely funding she pulled in by various means has probably now dried up (assuming she was spending all donations on the animals in the first place – in the circumstances it’s a very generous assumption).
Let’s sincerely hope something will be done about this woman, very soon, and that ALL the animals in her possession are taken to safe havens.
Going back to the screenshots and the hypocrisy of idiots writing on the The Lav, it’s unlikely anyone related to Save Lennox gave a toss about the attention Gunther attracted for her fake fundraising appeal (where’s the van?).
And it was common knowledge Gunther spent far too much time on the Internet (she never hid the fact) for someone who should be too busy running an animal shelter, which meant that all the time animals needed attention, she was on her own Facebook pages and in disguise on HC groups and pages, often into the early hours of the morning, leaving little or no time to care for the animals in her possession.
But isn’t it strange that The Lav should hide evidence of their support for EGAR and then complain that it’s unfair for Gunther to be accused of a previous offence with no proof? Now why should that bother The Lav if they apparently have nothing to do with Gunther or Deed not Breed we wonder?
Finally, The Lav would like to know why Page and Rushmore (Deed not Breed) are being criticised when other organisations that sent dogs to Gunther are not.
We’ll give them the short answer (long version coming soon):
Fingers are pointing at Page and Rushmore: a) because by their own admission they’ve known Gunther for ten years, sent dogs to her, and yet allegedly have never met the woman or visited her property; and b) because Page and Rushmore were the only people who conducted and took part in a very public hate campaign based on what Gunther told them – can’t say we witnessed anyone from the PSNI or the ISPCA doing that.
Under various circumstances, obviously lawyers profit from it – that goes without saying, and there’s insurance, tattoos, licences and often veterinary fees involved.
All that aside, no one else should gain financially or otherwise from BSL, directly or indirectly, but you don’t have to look far to find people doing just that.
Gaining through BSL is obvious with the likes of Page and Rushmore who front ‘organisations’ entitled Deed not Breed and the Bull Breed Advisory Service, and yet remain close friends with Sandie Lightfoot, Peter Tallack and Tina Delaney, three blatant profiteers of Breed Specific Legislation.
For Page, it’s her ego which benefits more than anything else; with Rushmore it’s a bit of both – Rushmore is a self-styled expert with no formal advanced qualifications (bar a handful of diplomas) but that hasn’t stopped her criticising and accusing Victoria Stilwell and Sarah Fisher of the same.
So what of their BSL Gravy Train mates? Well you’re probably sick to death seeing Lightfoot’s name here, not to mention Googling her name on Web and Images brings you back to the blog almost every time – sorry! And there’s obviously no need to explain why someone with her reputation and history should not be openly associated with an ‘organisation’ allegedly opposed to BSL [link].
The same goes for Peter Tallack – in fact even more so with him since his working life is dedicated to keeping BSL very much alive. Without it he’s nothing.
As for Tina Delaney, well she’s been hanging around with the Anti-Lennox posse for a whole lot longer than you might think, and whereas her buddy Lightfoot’s attempt at fame and fortune backfired so badly that she will forever be despised and considered corrupt in the majority of minds, so far Delaney’s made herself look a pratt in public on only two occasions (to our knowledge) – on the One Show [link] and when going public with the news that (wait for it…) she’s looking for the dangerous gene in Pitbulls ! [link]
Yes, Delaney is undertaking a PhD, which presumably she’s funding herself. Don’t worry though, she can afford it – her annual basic wage with Newham Council is at least £36k, and the majority of that salary relies on the continuation of Breed Specific Legislation.
Not so long ago, Delaney’s daft research would have meant she had to study the DNA of Rottweillers and prior to that German Shepherds. In fact over the years several breeds have been alternately blamed for human error. Hello???
Is she really that thick or just callous and artful? Well she can’t be too clever if she’s spending her own money studying at PhD level in a subject akin to Basket Weaving, for all the good it will do, because a quick shufti of the HES (Hospital Episode Statistics) shows that incidents involving dog bites/aggression do not specify dog breeds.
However, there are a lot of them and incidents involving an illegal breed would usually be taken further and/or make the news, so could it possibly be that in the vast majority of cases breeds other than suspected Pitbulls are to blame for aggression leading to injury and/or trauma? No kidding!
Makes you wonder why she doesn’t spend her money researching what percentage of HE Statistics involve incidents of aggression by dogs owned by Twats and Morons, or better still research cases where other breeds are responsible? Nah, bad idea, she’d be out of a job in no time, either that or she’ll discover that Yorkshire Terriers are all dangerous if they measure over ten inches, nose to tail (using a dressmaker’s tape of course).
The point is, Delaney illustrates just how lucrative BSL can be for people like her. So lucrative in fact that she sometimes gets a bit carried away, especially when a TV crew happens to be following her around and she’s feeling all puffed up and important. Delaney suffered from the Shitefoot Effect when she played to the cameras by picking on a poor sod walking his dog in a church yard, a man minding his own business whose dog looked more like a Labrador-Staffie mix by any stretch of the imagination [roughly 2 mins in on the recording: link] – but they damn well made sure her little exhibition was justified and duly came up with the excuse that the owner was eventually allowed to keep the dog under conditions. What a crock!
So thanks to Delaney we’ve been able to illustrate that she, Lightfoot, Tallack, Page and Rushmore are excellent examples of how you can do Very Nicely Thank You out of the Bull Shit Law that is Breed Specific Legislation.
~ Appalling and tragic as it is, Lennox’s death was set in stone the day Belfast City Council ordered him seized, on Wednesday the 19th May 2010.
In fact many believe Lennox’s destruction was a foregone conclusion the day Lightfoot turned up at the family home days earlier (11th May 2010), compounded by Tallack’s involvement – something he claimed was accidental because he ‘just happened to be in Belfast at the time‘ [link]. Given the many times he’s contradicted himself and forgotten his own lies, it’s probably safe to say that his involvement was anything BUT ‘accidental’.
The mere fact that Belfast City Council had Tallack at its’ disposal is neither here nor there – BCC, with crony Lightfoot’s help, would have ensured the same outcome for Lennox’s fate and found others to do their bidding – after all, there must be other fake ‘experts’ out there dense enough to falsify evidence for a reward of almost eight grand (the ‘official’ fee given to Tallack as a NON-expert witness).
But BCC did have Peter Tallack as cohort to Sandie Lightfoot – the ideal amoral and dishonest double act.
We don’t feel able to legitimately include the ‘official’ date of Lennox’s death announced by Belfast City Council because it’s more than likely he was killed long before that day. Doubters should consider that BCC counsellors consistently refused requests by the family to say goodbye to Lennox; they ignored all of Victoria Stilwell’s offers to take him out of the country, and even refused Sarah Fisher permission to attend Lennox’s execution and take his ashes and collar back to the family.
Add to that more Sandie Lightfoot lies, this time where she allegedly made a habit of visiting Lennox while he was incarcerated, when she supposedly drove miles out of her way to take him gifts and toys – all off her own back, out of the goodness of her heart, in her spare time, yada yada.
What a shame she was inflicted with occasional memory loss and on those particular occasions forgot to take her camera and/or phone, instead having to rely on someone else to provide a photo of a different dog to show her own ‘proof’ of Lennox’s wonderful life behind bars! [link].
But that wasn’t enough for this twisted and warped excuse – she stalked and intimidated her targets on more than one occasion [link], even allowing a photo she’d taken of their home to be used by her disguised Facebook friends to ridicule Lennox’s family [link].
Given what we all know about Lightfoot and Tallack, we end this post with a reminder that all the following were close friends or closely associated with each before Lennox was seized; all of them were on Facebook in one guise or another, and all of them supported each other to the hilt during the two year Hate Campaign – and nothing has changed :

Remembering Lennox, His Family, and All Victims of BSL
A Message from the Save Lennox Campaign:
On April 1st Join Us As We Remember Lennox On His 9th Birthday & All Those Past & Present Affected By Breed Specific Legislation. Help Us Spread The Word About Lennox’s 9th Birthday Campaign called,#EachOneReachOne Aimed At Informing Others About Breed Specific Legislation.
To mark another birthday without Lennox we ask you to reach out and tell someone about Breed Specific Legislation as there are still so many still unaware about BSL and too many innocent dogs are losing their lives. Just like Lennox, these dogs are much loved family pets who have never harmed anyone or anything, their only crime was simply being born looking a certain way.
BSL is wrong, BSL tears families apart, the only way to fight it is to stand together and protest that enough is enough! We demand education not eradication, we demand deed not breed!
The more people educated about responsible dog ownership and BSL the many more lives can be saved.
On April 1st 2014 at 21.00 (9pm) UK time and 16.00 (4pm) EDT join the Lennox campaign for a special Twitter tweetstorm. Here are some ideas of how you can show your support and help spread the word about Lennox’s 9th birthday campaign #EachOneReachOne.
Turn your twitter avatar/profile picture black for 24hrs on April 1st, alternatively you may copy and use the Lennox campaign memorial ribbon avatar/profile picture from this Facebook page or from the @OfficialLennox twitter account.
Change your Facebook timeline picture for 24hrs by copying and using the Lennox 9th birthday memorial timeline cover from this Facebook page.
Update your own Facebook status with Lennox’s story for 24hrs.
Print out an anti BSL leaflet or use the one attached (What You Should Know About BSL) and pass them out in the street or park, ask a shop owner or pet store if you may pin one to a notice board or if you may leave a bundle with them.
We can all help educate others who may not be aware of BSL if each of us reach out and tell one other person, EachOneReachOne.
Lennox will never be forgotten because his spirit lives on in the hearts of his family and in the hearts of millions around the globe who fought for him. Lennox will be forever with us as he is with YOU every time you help others, rescue, adopt, shelter, speak out against cruelty and campaign for the abolishment of BSL. YOU are his legacy, YOU keep his spirit alive, YOU help continue what Lennox could sadly only achieve in death, YOU are Lennox’s Army!
Continue campaigning for truth, continue to speak out and NEVER allow your voices to be silenced no matter how hard it may get… Never give up!
Thank You All. X
To all our friends and supporters.
Wishing you a very Happy 2014.
To our Subjects, we remind you that nothing is forgotten; there’s no hiding place and sooner or later – well, you know the rest.
It’s just a matter of time …
To make better use of this blog, over the next couple of months we’ll be covering things like, say, how someone who wouldn’t know the truth if it bit her in the ass managed to qualify as a local authority employee, and we’ll be pondering the question ‘Do local authorities conduct thorough employee background checks?‘
On the subject of qualifications (or lack of), since it’s been such a big deal for HC members in the past, we’ll be looking at:
We’ll also have a Did You Know slot every now and then. For example, Did You Know That:
(*Thank you for sending us details of another inactive HC group, detailed below*)
… we’ve noticed there are still a few inactive Hate Campaign profiles, pages and groups languishing on Facebook, in spite of being mothballed since …
(1) This was the busiest Jones’ profile, although it’s been dormant since July 2012, with the exception that several crass dog fighting accusations directed at Lennox’s owners were removed after that date, roughly the same time the Boycott Boycott Belfast (BBB) Facebook group deactivated, never to be seen again.
The rest of the images were also poached, including the boobs (haha), and the photo of the two huskies was nicked from JK Grooming‘s Facebook page.
Three other Jones’ profiles still sitting on Facebook existed solely to boost numbers on other HC pages and groups:
Then there’s Billie Bennet, aka Heather Jones :
And also still lounging on Facebook:
Ah, there she is again, good ‘ole Kaffy (Ella) Wardley. You can always rely on her to stick her EDL bovver boots in whenever required by whoever she’s toadying up to at the time. She’s not all bad though – Kathy (Arter) will join a lynch mob whether the target is a certain type of ‘foreigner’ or not – we’ll get to that another time.
But we digress. Coming back to these HC Facebook profiles, you have to wonder why the people behind those accounts haven’t deactivated them in order to delete all trace of their involvement.
We can only assume they’re either extremely arrogant or just plain thick, given that the associated details to create those accounts are still potentially available, and surely those same details have their uses for interested parties who read this blog?
*UPDATE* 14 November
Big thanks to one of our supporters for drawing attention to another inactive group:
July 11, 2013
One year ago today, 11 July 2012, Lennox’s family discovered that he had been put to death by order of Belfast City Council.
They will never know if the outcome might have been different without the manipulated and grossly flawed testimonies of Sandie Lightfoot and Peter Tallack, coupled with the actions and words of a few equally malignant, lying, callous fools.
Belfast City Council, without an ounce of common decency, did not tell the family Lennox had been killed. That task was left to Victoria Stilwell who had arrived in Belfast with the sole intention of asking BCC to consider releasing Lennox to her. Prior to that, Sarah Fisher had made a request to the Council asking if she could be with Lennox on the day of his death, and return his body to the family.
Belfast City Council ignored or refused all pleas and requests.
Disgusting behaviour, much like one of their employees, and it’s a good time to remind certain people that, despite their self-righteous arrogance, sooner or later their past and blatant lies will catch up with them.
Newcomers to the blog may not know that Sandie Lightfoot stalked Lennox’s family, even after his death – naturally she’s always denied it.
Lightfoot has been accused of routinely sitting outside their home on a regular basis, in full view of neighbours and passers-by, doing nothing in particular, just smoking and fiddling with her phone.
Lightfoot says it never happened. Her close friends and acquaintances, Mel Page, Melanie Rushmore, Sarah Gunther, have always backed up her story, knowing it was just another big fat lie :
Any close friend of Lightfoot’s will be able to confirm where she’s parked on that particular day. We say ‘particular day’ because this was not an isolated incident. And needless to say, the van details, times, dates and duration of Lightfoot’s little ‘visits’ were recorded and passed on. Tax-payers of Belfast must surely hope other Council employees don’t make a similar habit of wasting public money.
Of course it’s quite possible Lightfoot had another day off on that occasion and found herself with nothing else better to do except sit in a Council vehicle, wearing her Council uniform, texting away (or pretending to) for some considerable time, before driving off.
There’s no need for us to publish the family’s address – the Hate Campaign wasted no time in doing that months ago. In fact at one point they ‘amused’ themselves, with an image which Lightfoot had obviously supplied [»» link ««]. If the photo in that link wasn’t taken by her then it must mean other members of the HC were stalking the family as well.
Courtesy of Google Maps, an address search shows the buildings seen in the background of the first two images above:
Remembering Lennox and his family for all victims of the moronic BSL
We were about to get the blog rolling again with just a short reminder that, in spite of the HC being accurately exposed as lying Scum on a regular basis, not a single one of them has instigated any of the legal action they’ve threatened us with so often in the past. And then this arrived over the weekend :
For sake of argument, we’re assuming Rottie is not the person she mentions in her comment. Maybe it’s Lucinda?
Either way, she hasn’t read this blog properly, just skimmed the way most people who decide to disagree with it out of hand usually do.
If she had read more than a couple of paragraphs she would have discovered that someone else has already started the legal ball rolling (link), and we’re still here – there’s a reason for that.
If Rottie had paid attention she would also have seen that, even though we keep telling everyone we’ll cooperate with any ‘legal teams’ they feel like throwing our way, nobody has taken us up on the offer – there’s a reason for that too.
Rottie should contact Mel Page who currently has her own ‘legal team’ on the case, and as Page has always laid claim to an impressive list of “police friends” and ‘”friends in high places”, maybe if Rottie asks nicely, Mel Page might have her legal team and influential friends arrange a 2-for-1 deal.
Rottie, if you or “the people” are considering going it alone, you should learn to read more thoroughly instead of just skimming off the bits you feel like using as an argument. Maybe then you’ll get your facts straight.
You could start with referring to Libel and not Slander. If only that well known barrister Roxanne Summers was still around, she would have told you that herself. Never mind, you’ll have to make do with Messrs Page & Rushmore.
Your concern is appreciated, although we were never worried that you couldn’t ‘screenshot’ (presumably you mean ‘taking’ screenshots, otherwise that would be impressive!).
You mention having worked “online with Diane (Percival) every day for the past year, helping to get dogs out of kennels and find rescue spaces and forever homes for them“, which is very odd because our understanding is that nobody can find any evidence for those alleged good deeds. In fact, several people have emailed us with information to the contrary, which we’ll be happy to post on the blog if that’s the way you want this to go?
We’re more than willing to include evidence sent to us (link) and as far as legal action goes, maybe someone will have the guts to put their money where their mouth is one day and then we can all find out about each other 🙂
P.S. Kay Delahunty (assuming you’re not Rottie) – another one with an extremely short attention span, selective reading ability and sewer mouth. This blog started in October 2012 dear. Try to get your facts straight otherwise people might think you’re a fully paid-up member of the Save Lennox Hate Campaign Society, and that would never do, would it?
The FACTS (also see Stalking)
A few months after Lennox was seized his owners became aware that a Belfast City Council dog warden van was parked across from their house, which is situated in a small cul-de-sac with little more than a dozen properties. On that occasion they observed dog warden Alexandra (Sandie) Lightfoot sitting alone in the stationary vehicle, smoking a cigarette, watching their property.
The owners contacted Belfast City Council and the person who took their complaint said the matter would certainly be looked into, assuring them that someone would be in touch. However nothing further was heard from anyone at the Council regarding that incident, which doesn’t come as any great surprise.
On a separate occasion (two days prior to a scheduled court hearing), the owners were leaving the house on their way to an appointment with their solicitor, when they observed Sandie Lightfoot sitting in a dog warden van, a foot up on the dash and smoking a cigarette. The van was again parked at the entrance to the cul-de-sac.
When Lightfoot became aware she’d been seen, she “dropped her cigarette out of the van window, took her foot off the dash, started the engine and drove off“, attempting to shield her face with one arm. The owners briefly followed in their car, taking a photograph of the van being driven away at speed (see Gossip & Lies below).
Lightfoot obviously returned to her place of work immediately, because by the time the owners arrived for their appointment someone from BCC had already made contact with their solicitor, who explained Belfast City Council was now accusing them of following Lightfoot while she was going about her normal duties.
Which was odd because, just prior to that incident, a Belfast City Council spokesperson announced to the media that the dog warden directly involved in the Lennox case had ‘gone on indefinite leave‘ due to ‘concerns over her safety’ and apparent ‘threats‘ made against her by ‘Lennox supporters‘.
As no other dog warden was directly involved for any length of time, it must be assumed the Council were referring to Lightfoot and, if she was supposed to be on official and indefinite leave from her employment at the time, it’s unclear why she was in the area that day in her BCC uniform, driving a dog warden van.
When issuing the statement it’s unlikely BCC were referring to anyone other than Lightfoot, as it had already been established that the two other dog wardens present on the day Lennox was seized were not on leave at the time, and neither was Yolanda Elwood, the only other possible candidate for the statement.
If Lightfoot decided to work that day and feared for her own safety, as claimed by BCC, you wonder why she’d risk being alone in a stationary vehicle, window open, casually smoking a cigarette, obviously relaxed and certainly distracted enough to be caught by surprise.
In any case, the statement that Lightfoot was on leave at the time was contradicted outright by the contents of a letter from Belfast City Council received via the owners’ solicitors the day after the incident, stating :
“…on [said] date at [said] time, [they] had been observed taking pictures of Ms Lightfoot [in a van] as she went about her normal work duties and if [they] persist further action will be taken ….and if photographs of this incident find their way online, further action will also be taken”.
The owners wrote back to Belfast City Council:
“If this woman [Lightfoot] was carrying out her normal work duties as you claim in your threatening letter, then can you explain her normal work duties description and terms of employment, as I am sure it doesn’t include being parked up with feet on dashboard and smoking in a company vehicle, followed by littering the street with a cigarette end“.
The owners did upload the photographs to their Save Lennox website including a zoomed image enhancing the van ID number, vents (to show it was a dog warden van) and Lightfoot in the driving seat, which they censored. The Hate Campaign have claimed differently, and that’s covered below in Gossip & Lies.
Strangely enough, Belfast City Council didn’t ‘take further action‘ against the owners, despite the images being made public. Can’t imagine why!
Lightfoot’s ‘visits’ were not isolated incidents and her presence in the vicinity of the owners’ home was observed several times. She was seen driving into the cul-de-sac in question, turning around and driving back out again.
If BCC were telling porkies and Lightfoot was working that day, why was she hanging around a residential area and not out doing her job, instead of wasting tax payer’s money?
Gossip & Lies – Indefinite Leave
The usual convoluted lies have done the rounds on the HC Gut Wagon.
First they accused Lennox’s owners of coming across Sandie Lightfoot during one of her normal working days and then following her around just for the hell of it, and then they said Lightfoot wasn’t working at all that day and therefore couldn’t have been caught doing anything (so they know the particular ‘day’ being referred to when specific details have never been made public?).
Belfast City Council have contradicted one statement with another. They had previously made an announcement claiming Lightfoot was on indefinite leave for the reasons given above, and yet admit in the letter that she was sitting outside their house by warning Lennox’s owners against publicising the images they took of her there.
Gossip & Lies – Van images
The Hate Campaign have had a field day with this one and the reason they got away with it is because only the HC believe their own lies, and most of the time nobody else can be bothered to challenge them. Now that we’re covering the stalking issue, it’s a good time to put the record straight, if only to draw attention again to their desperate and nasty stupidity.
When the image of the dog warden van appeared on Save Lennox, the Hate Campaign jumped in with the story that Lennox’s owners claimed it had been taken from outside the front door of their house. In fact at one time they baffled themselves completely by saying the owners ‘claimed they took the photo from inside the house‘! Both of those lies were based on nothing (no change there).
The second time the image appeared on Save Lennox, it clearly showed that the only tweaking done was to zoom in to identify the van and apply a censor to Lightfoot as the driver. But, always cunning, the Hate Campaign came up with the lie that the original image had been photoshopped and altered. In fact they went to the trouble of placing the two images side by side to show the difference between the distance and zoom! 🙂
Nothing remotely amusing about this:
In July 2012, just a few days after Lennox was killed by Belfast City Council, this vehicle was parked directly outside the owners’ house:
They did not report it and, in any case, it’s not a dog warden vehicle. However, although on this occasion the driver of the van was not Sandie Lightfoot, the occupant is known to the owners.
It’s not easily explained why a Council van should be parked right outside their house, with the driver doing absolutely nothing – neither reading, on the phone or having got out of the vehicle at any point.
The homes and associated properties in that cul-de-sac are private but if the driver wished to park randomly for one reason or another, there are other more convenient and logical areas with easier access where this can be done, without blocking a private drive or parking directly outside someone’s home.
The driver of the van was not a Council maintenance worker. Details of the van, including ID number, the driver, date and times were recorded.
Our last post on this particular subject for the time being so we can concentrate on other things, unless of course they devise something else to blame us for 🙂
Just a quickie about something mentioned on Friday regarding Ted Ismay and his anti-paedophile groups. In a nutshell, Ismay made contact with a group admin and, in turn, that admin checked Ismay’s page, where he found the collection of posts mentioned in our earlier blog entry (link) and little else. In other words, there was nothing on Ismay’s page to indicate it was dedicated to anything other than the content of his warped state of mind.
Not long after that Ismay hid or removed all traces of his defamatory comments with the excuse that his kids were reading his wall. A strange thing to say considering he was the one concocting detailed sick stories which had been sitting on his page for some time, unless they’re used to seeing that tripe.
However, the admin did say that he’d passed Ismay’s details on to another group. We also understand from one of our followers that several similar groups and pages have now been contacted with a full explanation and links back to this site.
Mel Page and Ted Ismay have the morals of a gnat. As we’ve seen, they are prepared to say absolutely anything to deflect attention away from themselves, even to the point of dragging children into their spiteful games.
Their attempts at diversion reek of desperation and are so transparent it’s embarrassing, the same pattern of behaviour for all Hate Campaign members since their vendetta began.
So never mind Mel Page’s false claim of ‘guilt by association‘. With the disappearance of two major trolls, Heather Jones and Roxanne Summers, various other profiles and groups, even a child could figure out that Ismay and Page are in it up to their necks.
But, according to them, they have nothing to do with any of it; they’re entirely blameless, and yet Ms Page gives herself a get-out clause by saying she might have ‘retaliated‘.
They claim to be victims but they have fully supported and backed those involved with the HC in public from day one. That short memory lets them down every time – one minute they’re ‘guilty by association‘, then they’re ‘retaliating‘, and at other times just plain ‘innocent‘.
The fact that they have now removed comments, deactivated spare and fake profiles, wiped out Tweets and various other associations, is very revealing, but neither here nor there, since it was a waste of their time.
Time and again we’ve heard how the poor innocent things have been subjected to all kinds of uncalled-for abuse. There’s the ‘paramilitary threats‘ claim with no evidence to support it; the ‘I’ve been accused of threatening a child with violence‘, again with no evidence. Mel Page constantly refers back to vile threats and abuse, but no one has seen anything valid to support any of her claims.
And then there’s the incident where Mr Ismay allegedly took a ‘beating‘, altered and used against their targets. We know most people believe he either came off his bike or made himself unpopular with some locals and got smacked around a bit, but whatever the reason for his injuries, he and Page made sure that they ‘heavily implied’ Save Lennox supporters were responsible in some way for the alleged attack. Once again, totally untrue and with no evidence to back up their claims. Story of their life.
The ‘baseball bat threats’…
Mel Page was the first person ever to mention ‘baseball bats and dark alleys‘ in the context of a not-so veiled threat (and there’s that mention of her ‘police friends’ yet again). When the people she named in that comment took exception and retaliated, Page swiftly changed her mind and it suddenly became ‘a wish and not a threat‘.
But putting that aside, the real thing highlighted in that screenshot is her obsession with Hate Campaign targets. She’s not observing, she’s taking part. In fact it wasn’t even ‘retaliation‘ on her part; it was a random comment she made about a subject she herself initiated. So much for ‘guilty by association‘.
As for the ‘Ann Banford‘ profile having nothing whatsoever to do with her, all we can say is, Mel Page should have quit while she had the chance on that one. It’s probably the most ridiculous claim she’s made so far.
But you have to hand it to her, she went the whole hog, insisting she knows nothing about any ‘Ann Banford‘, which is really odd, because that particular Ann Banford routinely posted on HC pages and groups targeting the exact same people Page mentions in her ‘baseball bat and alleyway‘ comment. What a coincidence.
In any case, that Ann Banford (with the same url address shown in the screenshot below) was a regular visitor to the very same HC pages Mel Page frequented all the time. It’s not as if she can validly say she hadn’t noticed Ann Banford, because there have always been just a small handful of HC members posting on those pages at any one time. Not exactly crowded or busy. Certainly not busy enough to miss someone commenting on a HC target…
It’s plain silly to say she wasn’t posting under that profile, but apparently Page didn’t stop there. Bearing in mind Kathy Wardley’s blooper calling Larry Lawrence ‘Mel’…
Think we can safely say that’s not Mel Gibson in disguise.
Finally, a word on our non-existent attacks on Deed not Breed. That fabrication comes from the same mould as Mel Page’s claims that her kids are being stalked, and similarly she has no evidence to support the statement that we want to destroy DnB, because there isn’t any. She knows that of course; Page also knows that she is the only person damaging DnB, aided and abetted by the articulate Ted Ismay. Some free advice for the pair of them – time to grow up.
We’re not sure what this is…
Ted Ismay is definitely saying that a retired MoD officer is being stalked, but he’s also alluding to the fact that this particular officer still has access to Police databases. What could he possibly mean by that? We do hope he’s not insinuating that retired MoD police officer would consider breaking the law?
In response to one or two enquiries and comments on Friday’s entry, and the subject referred to, we confirm that it is genuine information in the form of a Facebook conversation carried out in public (i.e. not in a private or secret group).
Yes, it would be considered damaging to the people involved and, although we will not refer to it again unless absolutely necessary, it will be made available to authorities who wish to see it, including those investigating on behalf of Ms Page.
And that, as far as we’re concerned, is an end to the matter, for the moment at least. If Messrs Page & Ismay wish to wile away some time responding, that’s up to them; good luck with that.
Ted Ismay is obviously hellbent on taking that one-way trip up Shite Creek, with all the out of control rants he’s come out with lately. So before he spontaneously combusts, we thought it would be good to do some of the work for him.
In addition, Mel Page has changed her story again, and the investigation is now back on (or never went away, it’s confusing), but whatever the current explanation is, this post may help with ongoing investigations.
If you haven’t already seen the following piece of babble from Ismay, basically he’s saying you are a ‘stalker‘ if you’re not his ‘friend’ and you dare read his public Facebook page.
However, he’s taken an innocuous comment about someone else’s TWO DOGS and turned it into the stalking of his CHILDREN to satisfy his need to spread more bile using two of his favourite words, ‘pervert’ and ‘pedo’. He missed out the ‘C’ word this time, which is surprising really because it’s one of his and Mel’s faves.
Poor, extremely dense Ted, it hasn’t occurred to him that he’s the one looking like a fixated pervert with a one-track mind…
The comments Ted Ismay removed from his page are posted verbatim below to aid various investigations, including those of Mel Page’s legal team of course, and also to ensure they crop up on the Internet.
Speaking of ‘investigations’, for someone who has been advised by her solicitor to keep it zipped, Mel Page is certainly vocal on the Hate Campaign pages (the ones she doesn’t have anything to do with), even going as far as repeating Ismay’s ‘stalking pervert’ lies. Chances are it’s just a case of The Flounders all over again, but a reckless game to play nonetheless.
Mel Page is also suffering from HC Short Memory Syndrome, though it’s no problem to help her out there:
The first part of that screenshot shows Mel Page going through the motions for the sake of an audience (that’s us and you) on a page she has ‘nothing to do with’, Lem Thirteen. Wonder why she bothers. But presumably she’s referring to this:
So this is what she’s referring to, the ‘false allegation‘? Good, that’s cleared that up and it would account for her denial of wrongdoing, because in fact she used her Ann Banford account to do the deed, and not the Mel Page or Melanie Page profiles. (And it’s over to the Mel & Ted double-act to flesh that one out a bit more for their audience; will be interesting to see their version).
For two people who claim to be ‘innocent’ (at least their definition of it), they crop up in all sorts of HC places, going back several months. They’re also very defensive, to the point of raising things nobody has even mentioned. We realise it’s their attempt at deflection, but it’s a bit daft to bring up unsubstantiated claims of ‘being accused of threatening a child with a baseball bat‘, etc, and drawing attention to subjects it hadn’t occurred to us to cover. (Wait for it, they’ll mention their unproven ‘paramilitary threats’ again soon).

Ted Ismay Facebook says:
“Dennis, stop stalking my page and my children, that’s just perverted. Are you a pedo? The problem you are going to have is should my kids be contacted, messaged or even contacted by your shitty little blog then those that I do have addresses for will be paying for your mistake. And before you class that as a threat, it’s not, it’s a fucking promise and if you know as much about me as you wish to have your little gang believe then you know what I am willing and capable of doing. Its up to you old hoss, do you want to progress this into something you cannot control or stop?”
“This is the profile picture of the person that is stalking myself and has now insinuated that he is stalking my kids. If you see or hear about this person the owner behind this profile is a twat. It goes by the name of dennisstephens59 and is connected with the lennox campaign, headed by craig winters and supported by Ange Manners aka Roxi Bennetti, Doreen Davies, Maria Fawcett, Carol Eden, Clare Campbell, Julie Boyland and Charlie Smith. I will post these peoples profile accounts on my page later and I will also post their profile accounts on every anti pedo wall on facebook, because in my eyes stalking kids and supporting those that stalk kids are as bad as each other“

Just a quickie before we leave the blog for the weekend.
This from Mel Page in response to our post of the day ..
Thanks to Mel Page for clearing that up and confirming that no stalking of kids, as they claimed, occurred, owing to the fact that at least one of the made-up kids is a CAT (the other fake ‘kid’ is a DOG presumably).
And yes, we stand corrected again, it was Our Mistake to leave Huge Mistake’s comment out of the post. Seems Mel & Ted had one of their little double acts going on that day…
Finally, we’ve had an email informing us that Mr Ismay has made a prat of himself yet again, this time by contacting at least two known (and legitimate) anti-paedophile groups regarding his sick fake stalking claims.
However, an admin on one of those groups is a follower of this blog, not good news for Ted. On Monday we’ll post what the admin has to say about Mr Ismay and his comments.
Have a good weekend.
So, after seeking legal advice at least a month ago, Ms Page has only just been informed that her complaint is a civil matter, and it’s a no-can-do.
They didn’t tell her at the time, when she first complained and provided all her evidence, they waited until now to explain the legal processes. Why didn’t she ask her ‘Police friends‘? They could have told her the same thing ages ago. And it’s a mystery why her solicitor waited this long to explain nothing can be done. On top of that, at least part of her ‘complaint’ must have been made well over a year ago owing to her unsubstantiated claims of personal and paramilitary threats that have been floating around for months.
As for the fake ID’s, that’s rich – the next thing you know she’ll be claiming Heather Jones, a bunch of other Jones‘s, Angela Mannering, Billie Bennet, Larry Lawrence, twins Isabella & Nikola Black and even Roxanne Summers are all real !).
The only mildly savvy thing she’s done so far is use aliases, a Facebook admin and a ‘handle’ on the LLAAV website to post her bile, alongside using her own name to appear squeaky clean, which didn’t quite work out because she let herself go on more than one occasion. So much for having nothing to do with the Hate Campaign or any of its’ outlets.
Think we can safely say that Mel Page did not contact a solicitor or the police with or without ‘evidence’ for the simple reason that (as she knows very well) if something could be done about her complaints, her online activities would also be exposed, along with those of Ted Ismay. Page knows that in any police involvement regarding Internet crime, the track records of all concerned would be scrutinised.
As for the rest of that speech, it’s another crock again, familiar Hate Campaign stuff – the ‘poor me I’ve been caught out‘, ‘I’m the victim in all this now‘. They do it every time, predictable and samey. Well, Page should have thought about that before.
But in one of her remarks above, the ‘I’m the victim‘ whinging has taken an altogether nasty turn with her accusation that ‘friends and children‘ are being targeted and stalked. Desperate and very silly. What ‘friends’ would they be we wonder, her Hate Campaign colleagues? And the ‘kids‘ someone referred to, they would be another person’s ‘dogs‘ right?
If Page insists on spreading lies accusing others of stalking and targeting her children and Ismay wants to chance his arm branding people ‘pedo’s‘ (below), they should be extremely thankful this really is currently a civil matter, otherwise they’d both be up Shite Creek with both arms tied behind their backs.
Mel Page and Ted Ismay are finally reaping the benefits of their malicious stupidity and should take their own advice; “they seem to think they can say what they like…without any backlash. Not true“. As for their ‘bite’, it’s toothless.
Before we go…
Ismay eventually removed that post. Maybe he realised that naming people he would like to think have a hand in this blog makes him look even more stupid than usual, or maybe it crossed his mind that taking yet another comment out of context, for his own very unhealthy reasons, was a bit too revealing.
The ‘kids’ he’s referring to are dogs, believe it or not, but Ismay thought or hoped nobody would notice. Besides, that lie came in very handy for his own sordid purposes to spread yet another sick rumour, in true HC style. (Ted has had his fair share of ‘mucky’ little conversations on Facebook in the past. Shame he has a short memory, otherwise he’d have steered well clear of accusing someone of speaking inappropriately in the same sentence as he mentions ‘kids’).
In the screenshot below Ted got cold feet and quickly changed the names of his victims to initials, but he forgot that the editing history of Facebook comments remains visible. Not the brightest bulb is he…
A word of warning from the Hate Campaign – did you know that if you read one of their public Facebook pages, but you’re not actually friends with that person and that person hasn’t given you direct permission to look at their public page, then you are officially a Stalker? But if they do the same to you, that’s perfectly okay?
‘For the Love of Dogz! – Blogging the truth‘ is a Sarah Gunther creation. It will come as no great surprise that her blog isn’t really about putting records straight or solely ‘for the love of dogz‘ in general.
And although they both get a mention, it’s not even about ‘Bruce her (golden) Goose’, as she calls him (yes, really), or her pal Sandie Lightfoot – it’s about Sarah Gunther finding another way of venting her festering resentment and taking potshots at Lennox’s owners, with a quick swipe at Victoria Stilwell plus a stab at ‘other rescues’ along the way.
Gunther started her blog in July 2012, a few days after Lennox was destroyed, and it’s been abandoned since September of the same year, active just long enough to spill the bile eating away at her like a maggot.
From information and screenshots you’ve provided, it seems Gunther has always been very confident that the inaccuracies and fabrications littering her blog are taken as fact, so it’s time to put that right.
We’ll briefly go through some of Gunther’s comments here, and cover more points in an additional post – Feedback for Sarah Gunther.
» Statement re Lennox «
The above screenshot shows Gunther ensuring the email extract heavily implies Lennox was a full time yard dog when, in fact, she knew ‘being kept in a secure back garden’ meant nothing of the sort.
She’s never coughed up the full emails as evidence. You’d expect to see a screenshot of said emails start to finish, including headers and footers. In fact she’s never come up with so much as one sentence. You’ll just have to take her word for everything she says, much like Page and Rushmore.
In her blog, Gunther goes on to boldly state as fact that Lennox was a yard dog, in spite of never having been to his home nor possessing any proof to support her accusation. In fact even if Gunther’s mate Sandie Lightfoot had provided her with that information, it still wouldn’t hold water, because Lightfoot’s habit of sitting outside Lennox’s home (with the intention of intimidating his owners) happened after he was seized.
The ‘yard and status‘ dog claims are very familiar stories spread by all the other HC members, but in light of Gunther’s comments and source for her false allegations, it must be assumed the others took their cue directly from her.
According to the flotsam of the HC (as opposed to the Jetsam), they’ve never even met each other let alone Sarah Gunther, so if that’s the case they’ve obviously been spreading rumours based solely on information supplied by her, at face value, although it should be remembered it was the (still very active) people behind the fake Heather Jones and Roxanne Summers profiles who ran with the ‘yard and status dog‘ stories. The rest of the HC, the hangers-on, merely supported, agreed and shared.
In fact that whole post contains exactly what we’ve all seen on HC pages and websites, time and again – the same wild accusations and suppositions, the exact same lies, word for word. Strange.
According to Gunther, she has nothing to do with the HC and couldn’t possibly be one of the people hiding behind a fake profile. The reality is that, in spite of being the proprietor of a so-called busy animal rescue, she still spends most of time waging a vendetta against a family, all because she didn’t get her own way. Sounds familiar doesn’t it Mel Page?
How important are those animals to her if she’s prepared to give up precious time blogging and posting lies on Facebook, The Lav and various HC pages, when that time could be better spent elsewhere?
For example, Gunther made herself very busy with her vindictive accusations, including links to media articles regarding threats made to BCC employees:
Those links are intended to make it appear as if Lennox’s owners and closest supporters were responsible for the alleged (and most likely non-existent) attacks and abuse, otherwise why include them? Again more lies and, in any case, not a shred of evidence.
That in itself isn’t surprising, we’ve seen it happen repeatedly with the HC, but it doesn’t make any sense that someone with supposedly so much to lose has so little self-control that even as late as July 2012 (two years after her offer to take Lennox was rejected) she still held a grudge, resentment still eating away.
Gunther obviously published that post in July last year because Lennox had been killed a few days earlier, but the content makes it obvious it wasn’t due to any kind of sadness that his cause had been lost and she was, at the very least, instrumental in trying to harm his reputation – her own blog confirms it. So why did she choose to write it so soon after Lennox had been destroyed?
Most people are now of the opinion that the refusal to allow Gunther’s involvement was the main catalyst for the start of the Hate Campaign, and you all know the reasons why her offer was turned down.
Had Gunther responded to the owners with an ‘ok fine, it’s your decision‘ and left it at that, the chances are that many of the false rumours and ‘facts’ based on conjecture and malicious lies wouldn’t have occurred at all, that’s if you leave Sandie Lightfoot and Mel Page out of the equation, which isn’t easy to do.
Sarah Gunther didn’t leave it at that, she responded with bitterness and proved that she’s incapable of constraint and unable to remain unbiased, but then complained about the response and backlash she received.
She blamed other people’s reaction for her own behaviour towards the family, made excuses that others were criticising her, asking why she wasn’t offering to help Lennox, using that as a reason to fan the flames of the Hate Campaign.
There were a few grounds for the owners refusal of Gunther’s offer; one because it did not occur to them Lennox would never come home (choosing to legally fight his case – something Ms Gunther refers to as ‘not cooperating’**).
The other reason of course is kept quiet by Gunther – Caroline Barnes sent numerous emails to different people asking for advice very soon after Lennox had been seized. However, it was only when Lennox’s story became more high profile that Ms Gunther responded, by which time the process was in motion.
Gunther maintains the family pestered her for help over several weeks – another lie, made obvious by the fact that she has never been able back up that claim.
In any case, even if Lennox’s owners had known their efforts to save him were going to be in vain, they would have opted for someone else other than Gunther to take him. She doesn’t have the best of reputations as you all know, and is famously very cagey about her past.
Whatever made Lennox’s owners refuse Gunther’s help, their instincts were obviously spot-on and it was exactly the right decision to make.
(**At one point in her blog, Gunther cites differences between the reactions of the respective owners of Lennox and Bruce, and this particular comment of hers inadvertently illustrates the real reason for her unmasked hatred of Caroline Barnes and Craig Winters: “Bruce’s owner cooperated with the Courts and us“.)
» Musings of the day «
Not much we need say about that post from Gunther; it speaks for itself, full of resentment and jealousy.
Just one observation though – Gunther seems to admire Terrierman (Patrick Burns); she quotes and lauds him on his observations of Victoria Stilwell. Yep, he’s a real nice chap that Mr Burns…
When she created that blog, Sarah Gunther must have been convinced she would be taken seriously by everyone who read it. Perhaps she was guilty of believing her own publicity and opinion of herself, or maybe she was buoyed-up by the support from like-minded, bitter and vindictive people; who knows, but she was obviously very confident she couldn’t risk her self-styled reputation and the lives of all the dogs she claims to help, because for the most part it’s made up of conjecture, gossip and lies.
In reality, Sarah Gunther is unprofessional, unstable, envious and malicious.
As mentioned when going over the ‘Roxanne Summers’ profile (now deactivated), if you like to play judge and jury, it’s best to be squeaky clean. Allowing yourself to give way to hate and resentment tends to come back and haunt you sooner or later, but those now desperately trying to distance themselves from the HC have been too arrogant to believe that could happen.
Certain people have remained hidden behind aliases, either targeting victims on a daily basis, concocting stories, twisting facts, photoshopping images, making intimidating phone calls, contacting employers and creating childish names for people (or backing those who do), with the intention of degrading and bullying individuals.
They’ve pretty much had free rein to do whatever they please over the last two years. Now their stupidity is being exposed, they’re threatening us with all sorts. Well we welcome the intervention of Mel Page‘s ‘people in authority’ because, regardless of the consequences for us, her hidden activity over that period of time will also be revealed, and with luck she’ll drag the rest down with her. Not before time.
Meanwhile, just a reminder that any protestations of innocence are hot air. In fact only this week Mel Page contradicted herself in two different posts, one on Lem Thirteen (the page she claims to have nothing whatsover to do with, but to which she’s been inviting and adding people since before the Lem pages acquired numbers – now unpublished oddly enough!).
First Mel Page claimed not to know Heather Jones, only Roxanne Summers, and then she changed her mind and claimed to know Heather Jones but not Roxanne Summers. Confusing.
Speaking of Summers, it’s strange those profiles disappeared overnight, with no warning or explanation at all. HC pages often bow out with some sort of fanfare or feigned excuse, but not this time. Perhaps the Bar Council finally made contact with the person behind the profile, or maybe Connections hit a nerve.
So bearing in mind that Roxanne Summers and Heather Jones were fake and the people behind them still very much active, we’ll leave you with another reminder of their mental state, and let Mel Page herself do the introduction and set the theme:
The comment above was posted on the now deactivated Boycott Boycott Belfast page, the page ‘Heather Jones’ forgot was supposed to be hers and the one Mel Page has ‘nothing to do with’ *cough* (link).
The screenshot immediately below is from one of the Roxanne Summer’ pages, with Mel Page drawing attention to a website she also claims to have nothing to do with:
Regards the above, to confuse matters, Mel Page is also Ann Banford (her maiden name). Nothing unusual or wrong about that, except that it gets Page off the hook with her excuses about having nothing to do with the hate pages, because there she is, again.
Now this is where it gets really complicated because, as we all know, the Billie Bennet profile belonged to ‘Heather Jones’ (link), but ‘Heather Jones’ isn’t real so…..ah, what the heck, it could fry our brains trying to untangle that lot.
And here’s Mel Page or, more likely, Melanie Rushmore in disguise again as Larry Lawrence, only evident because someone none too bright slipped up:
Finally, sometimes amusing, but always disturbing (link):
Hello Ted, your completely unaltered comments are activated now. What, surprised?
Anyone who hasn’t commented on the blog before has to be approved, that’s to stop the odd airhead from Lem Thirteen or The Lav posting inane and childish remarks when we’re not around, as they’ve tried in the past.
We’ve also screenshot your comments so they can be covered better here, and you’ll find them below, although we’ve blanked out your IP address.
Looking at the overall questions, in a nutshell, the short answer to the whole lot is ‘You reap what you sow‘ Ted.
As we said right at the start, the purpose of this blog is to draw attention to things that have been said and done by members of the Hate Campaign. We’re aware you don’t like the term ‘Hate Campaign’, but it’s a step up from ‘Syco’, so not too bad in the circumstances and, in any case, it happens to be true.
We’ve also maintained right from the start that we control the topics and do not answer questions unless we feel the need, that’s our prerogative, and we have never pretended otherwise. As you’ve been reading the blog regularly in one guise or another, you should know that.
Also from the off we explained that we were not directly involved with (what you all like to call) the ‘core’ of the Save Lennox campaign. Obviously over the last few months we’ve become acquainted with many of them, in fact we wouldn’t have access to most of the evidence without them. That doesn’t mean we run a message service, so if you want to draw attention to any one of them directly, we suggest you do what comes naturally – use your own page, Deed not breed or The Lav, since they seem to be the only outlets you have left.
As far as pillow cases go, white or otherwise, nope, we don’t wear them.
The ‘abusive’ remark is subjective. You’ve all been exposed and caught red-handed, so from your point of view it’s a completely natural and expected reaction to make your accusers out to be the villains of the piece. It’s what happens when bullies and liars are confronted.
It’s pretty much the same as above in that you’re accusing your own personal hate targets of now being the bullies and abusers, and all because you’ve been outed. You’re backed into a corner so it’s fight or flight – a bit of both so far.
The KKK analogy is utterly ridiculous; they’re an organisation based on shocking and disgusting principles and your preferance for mentioning them every chance you get just makes it appear as if you share the same values. If you do share those values then fair enough, but at least spit it out and make yourself clear.
And ditto Comment 1 regards us blogging anonymously. You have a choice; read our blog, don’t read our blog. The time will come when (according to her) Mel Page’s solicitor and local police will have done their job and all will be revealed, including HC’s antics and hidden profiles. Until that day we can all carry on the way we are – the HC with more fakes than a mannequin factory, and us with our little blog.
In the meantime, clearing out comments on The Lav, deleting Tweets, closing down Facebook profiles and unpublishing pages, none of that will do an ounce of good any more.
Your wires are a bit crossed regards proof; take another look and read what we actually have said, and then take on board our ‘prerogative’ comments above. Oh and Ted, it’s best to keep in mind that we don’t care what you think.
The reason ‘why?’ is an easy one, we’ve answered that many times before and, if we ever doubted ourselves for a second, all we’d have to do is pop over to a Lem page (currently Lem Thirteen) or The Lav, or go through our cache of screenshots, to confirm what everyone except you and that very small band of malicious people can see a mile off.
As for insisting both you and Mel Page are innocents in all this and were never involved, that’s a joke. It’s completely false and you know it (link). Your constant need to explain yourself and comment on Lem Thirteen to rally the dwindling troops makes it very obvious that you’re really wondering what kind of proof we have and when we’re going to use it.
You should have thought about that long before creating fake profiles to pursue a hate campaign, under the delusion that you’d get away with it indefinitely.
What you both should have done was – well, not done it in the first place;simple as that. You should have thought about the repercussions. You can’t blame anyone else but yourselves; nobody ‘made’ you do anything.
This particular Teddy has an obsession with introducing the term ‘KKK’ (Ku Klux Klan) into pretty much every comment. Charming.
And, as mentioned previously (link), he either has an extremely short memory or doesn’t involve himself in the logistics of Deed not Breed because Ted Ismay states: ” ….DnB has saved the lives of hundreds of dogs over the past seven years or so and are still doing it, daily…”
All that saving must have occurred prior to 2012 then, because according to this comment posted on DnB’s Facebook page on Monday of this week (18 March):
So between the three of them (Deed not Breed / Bull Breed Advisory Service and EGAR) they’ve saved seven dogs in the last year. You’d be hard-pushed to add enough digits to that figure to turn it into ‘hundreds’, but no doubt they’ll find a way.
Ted also says ” DnB ask for no money, they pay for the full running costs out of their own pockets, they fund it themselves “, which is odd because Mel Page said something completely different fairly recently didn’t she?
Anyway, enough about Ted, although there isn’t much more we need to blog today, they’re doing all the hard work for us, and a fantastic job it is too. If ever we wanted to illustrate to our followers the infantile mentality of the Hate Campaign and, more importantly, the stark difference between them and other organisations and support groups, we could not, on any given day, have found a better example.
Before we go, just to remind everyone that, if you do look in on The Lav or Lem Thirteen, keep in mind they are all still there, regardless of the excuses that they cannot post for one reason or another. In fact they have so many fake profiles and aliases they’re running out of ideas. The latest one is Sherlock Homes, newly hatched, and the only reason they chose that name is they couldn’t spell Moriarty (can’t spell Holmes either). Okay, fair enough, that’s just nitpicking, and so is this:
We’ll go over the rest another time, but to leave you with an illustration of Debbie Gathercole’s version of ‘an adult’ and her alleged ‘disapproval’ of some disgusting things that occurred on their side of the fence:
It’s odd that Heather Jones chose to display a DDA notice, bearing in mind we all know the Hate Campaign were themselves responsible for spreading negative rumours about the very reputable DDA Watch in relation to donations.
Here’s the original post from DDA Watch with full thread, something Jones conveniently omitted from her post:
Guess it must have slipped her mind to include that in her post. That’s what comes of having mainly air between your ears. Heather, you need to get the old BIKE pump out dear; stick it one ear and see if anything comes out the other side.
A Hate Campaigner’s job can be darn hard work. It’s not always in-yer-face and crass as you’re used to seeing on their pages. Sometimes, no matter how subtle they try to be with their muck-spreading, nobody pays any attention. So what to do next?…
Simple – you orchestrate, and who better to join you in a pre-arranged performance than St Denise Day, the Patron Saint of Hypocrites 🙂
