Brenda Leyland – Troll?? – Suicide, Suicided or Murdered???


Brenda Leyland was alleged to be “An Online Troll” because she demanded to know the truth about a question that millions of people have had on their lips since May 3rd 2007.  .  .


Brenda Leyland was a well spoken, middle-class, 63 year old english woman that constantly sought out the truth in cases such as the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, but like so many of us never got the answers she sought so vigorously. She made allegations and suggestions via Social Networking sites like Twitter and this earned her the title “Troll”, but was she?? Really?? I don’t think so!!

On May 3rd 2007, three year old Madeleine McCann vanished from a holiday apartment and despite one of the most high profile cases for many years she has so far never been found. Yes I am telling you what you already know, hold on friends all will be revealed. During the rather long and laborious enquiry that has dominated a team of specialist officers from Scotland Yard’s lives over the last 7 years Kate and Gerry McCann have received allsorts of threats, abuse, etc but let’s just ask ourselves “Why that is”? The simple answer is “Because they have flaunted a high life style and their police statements have all contradicted one another ever since”.

Kate McCann, Gerry McCann

Kate & Gerry McCann insisted that Brenda Leyland bombarded them with “Abuse” via Twitter

Firstly; “IN MY OPINION” Brenda was not a troll, she was voicing her opinion and just like me she has the right to do that as we are British Citizens and so far our Government has not done away with “The Human Rights Act 1998” in which Article 10 allows us Freedom of Expression: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression, this right shall include freedom to hold opinions, to receive and impart information and ideas without interference from public authorities”. The stereotypical word troll has been banded about so much recently and now covers everything from an arguement or dispute to people making death threats, hardly the case for Brenda!! She wanted to see justice done, she wanted to know what happened to Madeleine McCann and to see Kate & Gerry McCann admit their failings and lies, I want the same thing but I am not a troll and what is more I can make The Dr’s McCann a promise “I WILL NOT BE MADE TO END MY LIFE BECAUSE YOU DO NOT LIKE MY OPINION & I WILL CAMPAIGN TO GET TO THE TRUTH FOR BRENDA’S FAMILY”!!



This lady described Kate & Gerry McCann as “Neglectful Parents” (They were – Fact), Objected to their string of media appearances (So do I – They are taking attention away from many other missing child cases) and continually complained that they were living from the profits of their daughter’s disappearance (They clearly are – Do you think they appear on TV shows and publish books free of charge??). Brenda regularly contacted Scotland Yard, The Metropolitan Police and BBC’s Crimewatch programme to ask that they did more and would press the media to put “The other side of the story and what many of us are thinking”, what’s wrong with that?? Answer – Nothing!!!

Brenda was confronted by a Sky News reporter at her village home of Burton Overy just a few miles from The McCann’s home in Rothley, Leicestershire. On the day after her interview was broadcast, Brenda vanished from her home, she was found dead in A Marriot Hotel in Leicester, to date her death remains unexplained.

Commenting about the death of this truth campaigner Dr. Gerald McCann said “An example should be made of ‘vile’ trolls”, well “In my opinion” say “An example should be made of parents that leave their tiny children alone whilst they go out eating and drinking and I particularly think people that tell lies about what happened when their child disappeared should be made an example of” but others ignore that!!

Sky news said in a statement “We were saddened to hear of the death of Brenda Leyland, it would not be appropriate to speculate or comment further at this time”

I do not believe that Brenda took her own life, if she did she was forced to do so under duress and that amounts to manslaughter in my book.

I am entitled to my opinion, so was Brenda and so are you dear readers. I’ll leave it there except to ask you not to forget Brenda and those that have been punished and victimised for having an opinion, please stand up for the rights of folk such as Brenda Leyland and what she stood for

Just Because.  .  . You can!!



can the bully be beaten

We are tired of bullies and we intend to expose them!!!!! Will you join us?? If you answered “yes” then please read on my friends.  .  .

I am pleased to announce that my family and friends are forming a campaign committee to expose and call for an end to bullying across the world. Bullying should in my opinion be made a criminal offence, after all it destroys victims lives, leads to dreadful acts such as self-harming, suicide attempts & ultimately death. I have contact with several family members and friends that have been bullied and I am personal witness to them struggling with their lives even much later on. 

The young woman that has inspired us to form this organisation was a victim of horrific bullying during her school years and although she is now an adult woman, is engaged to be married and running a business with her fiance she still suffers dreadful nightmares, feels very insecure about her looks, abilities and struggles to accept praise and compliments. During her adolescent years she resorted to “cutting” as a form of release from the constant pressure and fear of her bullies.

Amy Lou Ashman, The lady that has inspired “STOP THE BULLY – CALL FOR ACTION”. A beautiful young woman that definitely did NOT deserve to be bullied!!! She is a plus – sized female that merely had the desire to learn in school but was hindered by vicious thugs that thought it was okay to constantly harrass and pressure a fellow pupil to the point of hurling her into a ditch full of muddy sludge, stealing her shoes and leaving her bleeding, scared and alone. Why did those animals choose to do such horrible things?? Well because she was a little bit bigger built than them and because she wanted to learn, not muck about at school!!!!! Did the police take action?? Well yes they did in that they went and placed an order on the bullies that stopped them from contacting Amy until they were 16 years old, so. . . “What happened when they reached 16”?? Yes  you’ve guessed it, they started again!!! Amy has moved halfway across the country to escape the memories and the ghosts, she still struggles with many issues that to others would seem simple, like accepting a compliment, or self belief but not to a victim like her. Amy is now researching a thesis toward a degree looking at the long term affects of bullying, she is engaged to my cousin and we are all very proud of her.

We just CANNOT allow this kind of dreadful behaviour to continue my friends and I can promise you that I will personally not rest until bullies are made to see what their behaviour is doing to others and the authorities agree to take serious action. 

We will campaign to raise awareness, expose and ultimately stop.  .  .
