McCanns CHAMPION. Will the REAL Jim Gamble Please stand up?
It appears I have offended Jim Gamble, former Northern Ireland Police Chief and former Chief Executive of Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.
For those who may have forgotten, Mr. Gamble formed a close alliance with the McCanns, after their daughter Madeleine went missing, making them ‘Poster People’ for his CEOP Website, as well as involving them in other Campaigns.
I asked Mr. Gamble, via his twitter account, whether it was still his insistence that Madeleine McCann was abducted?
His response, I found to be quite astonishing:
“I am not sure that I gave ever (sic) insisted any particular theory”
Could this really be THE Jim Gamble?
The Jim Gamble who invited Gerry McCann to a CEOP conference entitled ‘Taken: Sexually-motivated child abductions’ to deliver the final speech??
The Jim Gamble who oversaw the making of the CEOP Viral video ‘A Minute for Madeleine’, a heart-rending appeal to the abductor, or those who know the abductor, to make contact and “Do the right thing”.
The Jim Gamble who said of Madeleine’s ABDUCTOR, in an interview with the Guardian:
“The person who’s done it knows they have done it,” said Gamble. “They will be paranoid, and it is likely that someone close to them will see that paranoia, or that as the pressure builds someone close to them who knows they have done it, and who is no longer a friend, might come forward. One thing is sure: the person who did this will be watching and listening.”
Clearly, this is a DIFFERENT Jim Gamble on Twitter, for THIS Jim Gamble now says:
“Until an investigation comes up with definitive answers I’m not sure we can say exactly what happened”.
Which was rather precisely the POINT of my question, given Mr. Gamble’s very obvious, tangible and unequivocal support of the McCanns and the ABDUCTION theory.
When I point this out to him, he responds,
“She is still missing. I am not going to play word games with you”.
ONE thing which is very apparent and repetitive in Mr. Gamble’s tweets about the case is his assertion that the McCanns have been “victimised”, “Bullied” and “harassed”.
“I am sure however that the parents should not be bullied”…….”I am if the opinion that the parents are harassed and bullied”…..” I take it you don’t support abusive & malign attacks on the parents?”
Here is MY response to him, in full:
“Mr. Gamble, I am categorically NOT playing games of any kind, word or otherwise. You have demonstrably been a vociferous supporter of the McCanns over the past few years, clearly propagating the theory that Madeleine McCann was abducted, and I merely wanted to know why it was you were so certain that the little girl WAS abducted.
Your initial response was “I am not sure that I gave ever insisted any particular theory”, and I am reiterating that it is patently simple to demonstrate that you HAVE.
That, of course, is your prerogative and I am in no way derogating you for your opinion.
Additionally, you keep responding to my questions that you are witnessing a lot of “bullying” of Madeleines’ parents, Kate and Gerry. Are you suggesting that anyone who wishes to dispute or doubt that Madeleine was abducted is, in fact, a BULLY?
I fully agree and accept that there are some sections of the online community who have posted despicable material relating to the case and who have adopted a course of action that could be deemed bullying, but my queries and questions, along with those many OTHERS who wish to voice the same opinions, can not surely be included in that?”
Mr. Gamble hasn’t, as yet, responded, nor do I expect him to.
He DID, however, take issue with other tweeters who made comments, and he also suggested that he would be seeking Legal recourse:-
“I will be in touch” He writes, cryptically, if not a little menacingly, including ME in his message.
A quick perusal through Mr. Gamble’s Twitter timeline will quickly establish his apparent and obvious devotion to stopping Online Bullying and abuse.
Which makes it all the more remarkable when you consider that some of the people he FOLLOWS and supports, on Twitter, are renowned and regular abusers and bullies of those who do NOT bully or harass Madeleine’s parents, but simply elect NOT to believe that Madeleine McCann was abducted!
He converses with, re-tweets and follows those who haunt those forums and web pages, specifically designed, set up and launched to provide an ABUSE platform against anyone who deviates from the Madeleine abduction theory.
Web pages that publish personal and private information, photographs of individuals and in some cases, their families and CHILDREN, ‘outing’ who they refer to as ‘Pitchforkers’ or ‘Haters’ simply because they do not share their opinions.
People who undertake extensive and elaborate CYBERSTALKING in order to vilify and abuse anyone who opines anything differently to what the McCanns and their subservient PRESS adhere to.
So this clearly CAN’T be THE Jim Gamble, but an imposter, or someone who has hacked his twitter account.
As I tweeted:
“PLEASE NOTE: TROLL ALERT @Jgineqe account, purporting to be Jim Gamble, formerly of CEOP, is probably FAKE, unless proven otherwise!”
Quick as a flash, jumping to his defence is none other than the infamous Father Jack!, (@urcrazytoo) a person who has made 17,500 tweets, EXCLUSIVELY abusing, goading and ridiculing everyone and anyone who elects not to agree with the seeming CULT to which this individual subscribes!
Even QUICKER was the defence of Father Jack himself, made by……..Jim GAMBLE!!
When I referred to the former using a derogative, if not marginally abusive term, Gamble responded:
“Classic”, why resort to abusive language?”
Because, Mr. Gamble, you can’t argue with a Troll. They’ll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience every time.
So you’ll have to forgive me if, you are indeed the REAL Jim Gamble and it WAS you who ‘penned’ the conversation we held on twitter .
Alas, my assertion that you are a troll still stands. By standing against, and encouraging the derogating of anyone who chooses NOT to support the McCanns, along with labelling them as bullies and abusers by virtue of their opinions, is trolling.
In addition to which, ANYONE who cares to FOLLOW and associate with the incorrigible and puerile Father Jack can only be a troll!
Of course, if you still wish to seek “legal recourse”, then let me know. I’ll give you my address to send the subpoena.
Godbless Madeleine McCann, wherever you may be.
