Ham&High: Royal Court Orders Media Blackout of Mass Murder Cover-up


Thursday February 12, 2015.
Article here   



It's pretty interesting what the mindset of the journalist is when they write this article. They're obviously meeting the 'brief' of the publishing company - Ham & High's owners to placate the public and put down any fears. It's no good having fears... People might stop coming in to work. Those owners will well be all caught up in this too one could strongly suspect.

The "position" the journalist writes from is called "The Angle" in Journo-speak. The article fully backs the actions of the establishment - police, courts, school, Cafcass - and CLOSES THE KIDS DOWN. 

Christ Church Primary School CE, Hampstead gets the "last say" in the article, with a great big FAT QUOTE - A position that the paper has apparently chosen to endorse - since they published it:

"This week the Hampstead primary school sent a letter to parents which said: In relation to the recent allegations the police and social services were immediately notified. The investigation that was undertaken concluded that there was no substance [guffaw] to the allegations so no further action will be taken. "The school is currently working with the Camden legal team and the police on the difficult task of removing the information from the internet"."


- Really ?? Do Ham & High always quote their sources but never give their NAMES... 
MISS KATY FORSDYKE ?????

And THAT ladies and gentlemen is what you call, "PROPAGANDA".

aka. "The Ministry of Truth", ref: George Orwell, 1984.



Citizen Journalism:

Here is a very good opportunity for people on the ground in Hampstead. 

The Ham & High has moved to a "Citizen Journalism" model.  So "if and when" you see something suspicious in Hampstead, take your photo (clear, not fuzzy, close up on your subject), get your video < 3 minutes including an interview for 30 seconds with somebody, write a brief 250 word article on what you saw, using "Who, What, When, Why, Where and How" as your guide stones. Get an accurate quote and the correct spelling of the people you have interviewed. It needs to be somebody who this situation/ event is having an impact on. 

Here's the statement from the company Annual Report 2013. 
Quote it if you need to:
"In January 2012, Archant launched the unique iwitness24 community news platform that aims to transform the way it gathers news. It is designed to allow readers to contribute pictures and videos in a quick and easy way."




Some additional information about Ham & High

Ham & High Express

Search on Ham & High "Hampstead Child sex abuse"
Only 6 articles come up. Let's just say that the Hampstead & Highgate Express is "under-reporting" on Child sex abuse cases.



The Hampstead & Highgate Express is owned by Archant Limited

The Colman and Copeman families still retain close involvement in the business.

Here is the Chairman of Archant Limited. I'm fascinated by his name, and kind of wondering why he hasn't changed it yet, as the Meyer family did in the 18th century when they became "Wrath's-child".  I wonder if Richard Jewson lives in Golders Green?

Archant seems to be a subsidiary of Amazon, if the URL following is anything to go by...


Here is how much Archant Limited made in 2013 for telling bland stories to an audience who wants to beLIEve it's "business as usual".

  • Adjusted earnings per share grew 131.8% to 45.9p (2012: 19.8p). 
  • Net debt at the end of the year stood at £6.8m (2012: £15.7m), reflecting strong cash generation in the year. 
  • Revenues from online activities grew by 19.3% to £7.2m, principally in display advertising. 
  • A significant programme of cost management together with a reduction in newsprint costs saw total operating costs down £7.9m (6.3%) to £117.2m (2012: £125.1m).
