For a number of years, five to be exact, the CMoMM forum, headed by Jill Havern and Tony Bennett, has, whilst claiming to be against the McCanns, consistently attacked, smeared, and lied about a huge number of 'anti McCanns', far over and above the number of attacks they have visited upon the vile trolls supporting the McCanns, during the same period. In fact, as I shall prove later in this blog, the duplicitous pair have allowed pros onto the forum, to stir the pot, and fight their dishonest battles for them. Before I move on to that, and many other points, I would like to describe how I became a victim of Jill and Tony's deceitful, and dangerous games.
It was around 2015 when I first became suspicious of the activities of Tony Bennett. Here was a man, who had in 2013 been found guilty of breaching a court ruling, imposed on him in 2009, and yet continued (and does to this day) to fall foul of that very court ruling. For anybody who is interested in reading the build up to the court ruling, they can do so here:

Build up to court ruling against Tony Bennett

Final court ruling

The crux of the order however, can be learned from the following quote:
"In exchange for the McCanns and Edward Smethurst reducing their combined costs claim against him from a total of around £420,000, to £35,000 - a 92% reduction overall - Tony has been required to:
* Withdraw his appeal against Mr Justice Tugendhat’s judgment,
* Withdraw his application to vary three of the sixteen different undertakings he gave to the McCanns and the High Court in November 2009,
* Agree to be bound for life by the 16 undertakings he gave to the Court and the McCanns in November 2009, and
* Agree to make no further Application either to lift the stay on the McCanns’ original Libel Claim. or to vary or
discharge any of the undertakings he gave in November 2009."
One of the orders Tony Bennett was given in 2009, and as can be seen above, is bound to for life, was this:
"The Defendant undertakes not to repeat allegations that the Claimants are guilty of, or are to be suspected of, causing the death of their daughter Madeleine McCann; and/or of disposing of her body; and/or of lying about what had happened and/or of seeking to cover up what they had done.”
Now, to my point. As I have said for a number of years, and as is proven beyond any doubt from the above quotes, Tony Bennett did indeed do a deal with the McCanns. He received a 92% reduction of the costs he was ordered to pay, despite being found guilty of a breach, and despite still breaking the court order to this day - how very charitable. Tony himself even alluded to the reaching of an agreement with the following words after the hearing:
"I'm sorry for the distress I've caused to them - I'm hoping the way forward will result in both of us drawing a line under the situation."
The way forward - hmmm, just what was that way forward Tony? Clearly not to stop discussing the case, or as per the order, accuse the McCanns "of lying about what had happened and/or of seeking to cover up what they had done.”
As any of you who have read CMoMM will know, Tony Bennett forcefully imposes the theory that Madeleine died/disappeared before the 3rd May 2007, the very date the McCanns, and the tapas 7 claim Madeleine was "abducted". In what universe does that claim not directly oppose the court order? If Madeleine disappeared before the 3rd, and the McCanns say she didn't, then the only possibility is that the McCanns are lying, and seeking to cover up what they had done". There are no two ways about it.
Interestingly, and perhaps crucially, is this quote from Tony, shortly after the ruling, and it's in relation to Jill Havern, and her reasons for setting up the forum. If you're under the impression it was to find out the truth about what happened to Madeleine McCann, you're wrong:
"I start by thanking once again the forum-owner (Jill Havern), who originally set up ‘The Complete Mystery of Madeleine McCann’, largely to help me, and who has remained loyal and helpful throughout all the ups and downs of the last four years."
So very much like the fund for Madeleine, which was never set up with the sole purpose to help search for Madeleine, but to protect Kate and Gerry. The CMoMM forum was set up largely to help Tony - not to find out the truth, but to help Tony - and help Tony it has.
It is my firm belief that Tony has been a conduit for the McCanns. With his wild theories, his attacks on antis, his dogged determination to force a scripted scenario upon those who follow him, his campaigns against anyone who disagrees with him, his close connections to pro McCanns, and the speed, and ferocity at which he shuts down anybody who might hold vital information, an insight to the case, or wish to promote the facts of the case, away from his controlling ways.
The reason Bennett, and Jill Havern turned on me so viciously.
For a number of years Tony Bennett has done his level best to attack, amongst others, Sonia Poulton. There are many pages on the "largely to help (Tony)" CMoMM forum - indeed there is a full section dedicated to attacking and smearing Sonia. As many of you will know, I am an admin at Justice For Madeleine; a group that Tony tried to have shut down after we stopped a former group member, and CMoMM member continually, and unfairly attacking Sonia Poulton. That is a rule we have always had on the group, and one we stick to. Bennett's obsession to harm the wellbeing of Sonia has been evident for many years, and is something I found utterly sickening.
I am lucky enough to know Sonia on a personal level. When she announced she would be making a documentary, (one that Bennett and his team have poured cold water on since it's making was announced), I was very eager to find out what Sonia's intentions were. Would she put the facts of the case across diligently, and accurately, or would she flirt with some of the myths of the case? I decided the best thing to do, would be to ask Sonia directly, when I did so, she suggested we have a chat on the phone. We talked at great length, Sonia asked my advice on what I thought should be in the documentary, and what I felt were myths, or unsubstantiated claims. A great deal of work was then done by Sonia on a daily basis, all the while suffering attacks from Tony Bennett, and his pro McCann friends - oh, you forgot I said I would show proof of his links to pros, and that he colluded with them? More to come.
It was during a period when the attacks upon Sonia began to reach their worst, and were emanating from a team of pro McCanns, and Bennett, that I approached Jill Havern via PM. I asked Jill to show some empathy, to stop the relentless harassment, and stalking of Sonia on her "largely to help (Tony)" CMoMM forum - Jill agreed, and put all the posts that attacked Sonia into a members only area - a small blessing given the low number of members interacting on the forum.
At that time, Sonia was in the middle of a court case, she had brought against a prolific pro McCann and friend of Tony Bennett's - Darren Laverty. Laverty and his cronies have a long history of lying, stalking, threatening, harassing, and attacking survivors of child abuse - vulnerable people that the establishment would sooner see silenced, people that Sonia sought to help - as this blog unfolds, you will see how Tony fits right in with these people - for now though, allow me to show you some screenshots that will give you a better idea of the type of person Darren Laverty is. 

If we are to judge a man by the company he keeps, what are we to make of Anthony Bennett over his alliance with this creature?  Bennett, so supercilious about others' bad language and vulgarity, seemingly has no problem with his friend's sickening public outbursts:

The case, fell apart at the eleventh hour, the reasons for which I won't go into, suffice to say a certain child abuse apologist, and barrister called in favours for her friend Laverty. Tony used this opportunity to his agenda- fuelled advantage. All the pages that had previously been hidden, suddenly reappeared, and Bennett took to Twitter to bask in glee, throwing more hatred toward Sonia, and thoroughly enjoying the schadenfreude in seeing her suffer - receiving information directly from the aforementioned pro McCann - Darren Laverty. During this time Sonia struggled on, and tried her best to continue filming, researching, and producing the documentary. Finding herself up against the inevitable problems of creating a documentary the McCanns would have fought tooth and nail against, as well as facing daily abuse from Tony and his friends. Just what motivated Tony to do all he could to demoralise, and cause suffering to Sonia? Surely  any true anti would welcome another documentary on the case...wouldn't they?

The attacks upon Sonia weren't the only time Bennett colluded with pro McCanns. When Leanne Baulch headed the Go-fund me campaign for Goncalo Amaral, Bennett, armed with false information from Darren Laverty once more, decided to take to the pages of the CMoMM forum, and try his level best to cast doubt upon the fund's authenticity. Remember, that without this fund, Goncalo Amaral would have been unable to appeal the original verdict that of the case the McCanns had against him - resulting in a ban on his book, and a very real chance of bankruptcy. Indeed the very things the McCanns sought to do to Bennett, before he reached a deal with the couple.

Here's a link to Laverty casting doubt upon the fund.

...and here, a link to a pro McCann blog that promoted the words of Bennett, and shows how he was also doing the very same as Laverty (also note the involvement of CMoMM member "Cloak and Dagger", AKA Frances Gallagher - another whose links to pro McCanns are very well documented:

Link to Bennett attempting to smear the fund for Goncalo Amaral

My crime, to defend both Sonia, and Leanne - or to look at it another way, to defend the truth.
In light of the resurrected attacks upon Sonia, that were upon a forum overtly bearing the name of Madeleine McCann, but, covertly, from the fingertips of Bennett and his pro McCann friends, I decided to make a stand. Each day, on twitter, I asked Bennett how he was still able to comment on the case, despite a court ruling preventing him from doing so. What followed, was both unbelievable, sick, and despicable.
Yeah right...

Jill Havern, the woman who, according to Tony set up her forum, using the name of Madeleine McCann, but with the purpose of helping him, began to lose her mind. She accused me of a number of things. The link below is to my own Facebook page, and shows how Jill was easing herself into a rhythm of lies, and attempts to discredit me:

As can be seen, I countered those lies from Jill with inarguable facts, even as can be seen below, offering Jill the opportunity to resolve our issues privately. 

In hindsight, showing Jill up as a liar, for what were fairly mild lies, was a mistake. What followed, was far, far worse, and utterly despicable.
Jill stated on her forum, and without the slightest bit of evidence, that I was guilty of 8 crimes, the worst of which being sexual assault, the screenshot for which is below:

So Jill accused me of the following crimes:

1. Threats to kill (other than Tony).
2. Threats of violence.
3. Persistent (and continuing) stalking/harassment.
4. Sexual assault.
5. Fraud.
6. Blackmail.
7. Making a false statement to police.
8. Obtaining a pecuniary by deception. 

Interestingly, Tony Bennett (on the screenshot, and link below), confidently, and dishonestly, denied these claims were ever made, after Jill had deleted her lies. He even dragged Cherry Berry into the mix, who had seen the claims, but was accused of lying as well (more on the terrible way Cherry was treated later). Unfortunately for Tony, and Jill, they presumed I was stupid, and hadn't archived the libellous claims.

Link to Tony Bennett lying again. 

I had seen through Tony's game, but worse for him, I wasn't going to let it drop. They now needed to silence me, and would stop at nothing to do so, even accusing me of being another poster, known only to me as Andrew, a former CMoMM member, who they claim rang Tony, and issued a death threat back in 2014/15. It was at this point I contacted the police. A twitter/forum spat is one thing, to falsely and maliciously accuse another of sexual assault, for no other reason than to cause that person harm, is beyond sick. Not only did they put me in danger - as they discussed openly where I used to live, examined photographs from my Facebook profile for clues about my movements, they also tweeted links to their lies, with a hashtag attached to the name of the small town I lived in. What that meant was that anybody from my area who was interested in news in my town, would be met with links to Havern's lies. This course of action caused me severe distress, I became ill, I didn't feel safe leaving my own home, and became withdrawn. My health deteriorated further, culminating in me collapsing at home, and being rushed to hospital via an ambulance, due to a bout of pneumonia. Nice people...

Jill has continually claimed that I have never contacted the police over both her accusations, and those of Tony Bennett.
Well Jill, as you already know, I did contact the police, they did investigate your claims, and, as can be seen from the emails below, they stated that you were guilty of harassment, and defamation of character. Of course you know why that is...

I have never been involved in, nor have I committed any of the crimes you claimed I was guilty of.

As for Bennett, and his stance that I called his home phone in the early hours of the morning, and issued a death threat, I also contacted the police regarding that matter. In fact I spoke directly to the original investigating officer, PC Sunderland of Essex police, who stated I was never, and had never been a person of interest, and that the case was now closed. I did offer to travel to Essex to give a statement, but was told that wouldn't be necessary. Once again, I did everything I could to resolve the issue. Sorry to disappoint you Tony, but once again, you've made a complete fool out of yourself, by mixing reality with your own warped fantasies.

Two emails of my correspondence with PC Sunderland, (as is my right, I have withheld some personal information):

PC Sunderland's reply:

Cherry has been a great friend to me over the years. She has never once lied to me, and doesn't get involved in any trouble, preferring instead to stick to the facts of the case. In fact, you would be extremely hard pushed to find anyone with a bad word to say about her. Unfortunately, and against my advice (which incidentally I have given to many who wished to back me up), Cherry called Jill and Tony out on their lies. She did so in her usual polite manner, stating that, as is true, she had seen the emails from the police. She also said that she had seen my driving licence, which she had, that proved I wasn't "Andrew", due to our birth dates being different, and (rather obviously), our names being different. For her troubles, Cherry was banned from CMoMM (the forum set up to help Tony), accused of being a liar, and smeared, whilst having her right to reply taken away.
Both Jill and Tony owe Cherry a huge apology, I have proved I was telling the truth, and therefore proven Cherry to be totally correct in what she said in my defence as well.
Cherry's crime? To tell the truth.

Cherry isn't alone, the list of anti McCann that have been attacked by the forum to "help" Tony, is ever growing. People such as JillyCL, Isabelle, Carla, Carole, Ann, Linda, Teddy and no doubt others I have missed here. The collective forum "voice" rounds upon anyone who might hold vital, or useful information - former Met detective, Colin Sutton for example, the man who told us that Operation Grange hadn't been carried out in the correct manner, and who could have told us so much more, had Bennett not done all in his power to chase Mr Sutton away.
Again, the question must be asked - for what purpose?
Bennett wouldn't need half of these facts to throw an accusation about - he can actually do that with no substance at all.
Indeed, a true measure of how respected the owner of the CMoMM forum is, can be seen from the following two tweets by Jill Havern.

Link to original tweet.
Little wonder then, that despite bragging about being the most popular Madeleine McCann forum in the world <snort> Jill had to advertise on twitter, for a Portuguese translator.

But back to business.
Jill and Tony weren't acting alone with their lies and smears against me; they had enlisted the help of another pro McCann - Simon Just. Just (AKA @MajorLeak2017 on twitter), another close friend of Darren Laverty, and one who displays exactly the same sort of behaviour, is a vicious troll who also likes to invent totally baseless stories about those he wishes to silence. Unlike Laverty however, Jill allowed this pro McCann nasty to join her forum, and post his accusations up in the form of a blog, for all to see.
I ask again, why would Jill Havern and Tony Bennett allow a pro McCann troll, one with a PIN notice from police for previous illegal activities online, to post on their forum, with the sole purpose of discrediting an anti McCann? Any port in a storm, or something far more sinister.

So far I've shown Jill and Tony's links to pro McCanns, and how they work hand in glove, but I've saved the best for last. The Needle Blog, is frequented by Simon Just, Darren Laverty, and Tony Bennett, when they fancy a spot of anti McCann bashing. What is most intriguing however, is who The Needle Blog supports - none other than the leading pro McCann site, used by all the main pro trolls. Proof, if it's still needed at this point:

...and who do we see here on Stop The Myths?

Link to Stop The Myths

Why it's Rebecca Sherlock/Flannely, the sick ghoul who attended Brenda Leyland's inquest, after previously hounding her on twitter, and celebrating her passing by posting a youtube link to "Another One Bites The Dust". Rebecca's trolling has been well documented over the years, in this blog, others, and on twitter. Not surprising then that she also peddled the lie that I was a sex offender, and took to twitter to support Jill Havern.

*Coincidentally, and as this blog sits finished, waiting to be published in the morning, Jill has had another petty swipe at me on twitter, with a vague threat. Click on the link below to Jill's tweet, and then hover over the two likes that she has received. Who do we see supporting Havern yet again? Yep, it's Rebecca Sherlock/Flannely once more*

Link to Sherlock supporting Jill Havern once again. 
Anybody still in any doubt about the nefarious actions of Jill and Tony, a pair of born liars with an agenda poles apart from real truth seekers?
Let's have a look at the words of John Blacksmith, owner of The Blacksmith Bureau blog:
"25 July 2017 at 13:56
I’ve finished with the thread’s specific subject but I’m struck by JJ’s post, 10.12, and Margaret, 21.23 about the timing of the Pit’s about-turn after which the site became a “weird place”.
The significant dates are given in those posts. 2013 was when the investigative review turned into an investigation.
People are claiming that Bennett works undercover to assist the McCanns.
From 2013 to date, among the insanity of thousands of claims, we have three directions of repeated critical attack led by Havern and Bennett.
1) Relentless assaults on the Smiths and their sighting, which Grange made clear is a critical lead under investigation.
2) Clear statements that Amaral’s conclusions, and therefore the 2007 PJ investigation are mistaken.
3)Repeated infantile attacks on operation Grange and Scotland Yard.
We can ask a question: What is it that the McCanns show real signs of fearing?
Their statements in court, “Madeleine” and the OFM show that one terror is the Smith sighting. Another, naturally, is Goncalo Amaral. The Smith sighting is being studied and unpicked in Operation Grange.
So these three major fears of the McCanns match exactly the above three subjects that Bennett dismisses as misguided or worthless daily.
On the other side, what does the Pit constantly push as the correct key to the case?
The one thing that the McCanns never show any signs of worrying about: a conspiracy to protect them by politicians, bent police officers “like Gamble”, mysterious millionaires like Kennedy, Freemasons or others unknown.
Check the record: the McCanns – in glaring contrast to their behaviour and comments regarding the three subjects above – are completely unconcerned about what people say or claim about such a plot. In “Madeleine”, for example, KM works like one of the Springer spaniels to sniff out areas of danger to subvert or buttress: do a “find” on the e-text of Madeleine and you’ll see buttresses erected to strengthen the Tanner sighting, the Payne visit, other “abductor” sightings, 10PM in 5A, Oldfield’s check and so on.
But she doesn’t bother with conspiracies. Far from hiding her “protection”, she boasts of it as if she wants us to believe the conspiracy theory – which, of course, she does.
She gloats at the support from Gordon Brown, the Blairs, Gamble, Kennedy and Smethurst, Control Risks, Scotland Yard etc.
Kate McCann is the main source for the conspiracy theory.
Lastly, Jill Havern. The lies and inability to state facts come from the top at COMM. In this letter, having described Grange as a “farce” she writes (to the PM!):
“This is despite the fact that when the Portuguese investigation was shelved in July 2008, it EXPLICITLY DECLARED that they were looking at two distinct alternatives: 1) abduction by a stranger or (2) the parents, the McCanns, having hidden Madeleine’s body to prevent an autopsy, and having staged a hoax abduction.”
The sentence is a complete invention and she’s sent it to the PM in June 2017! Is she also actually mad?"
I am not alone in believing that CMoMM is a front - that it's real purpose is to help Tony Bennett. The help I believe those who run the forum give to Tony, is, as I said before, to forcibly ram certain theories down the throats of the readers. Theories that the McCanns would far rather be accepted, than the truth. Think about it, Tony claims that:
1. Smithman isn't Gerry McCann - The Smith sighting is something the McCanns have desperately tried to cover up.
2. Madeleine wasn't seen by any indepenedent witness after 29th April 2007 - she of course was, but stating that she wasn't, has any would be investigators, looking at the wrong date entirely.

Back to Bennett's court case, and the deal now proven to have taken place between him, and the McCanns. A deal that saw him receive a 92% discount on a sum of money he was told to pay Kate and Gerry, yet has seen him continue to comment on the case, and directly accuse the McCanns of covering up the facts relating to the disappearance of Madeleine.
The above case was put to the court by the McCanns' lawyers, during their failed attempt to extort money from Goncalo Amaral:
"Judge – What about the public in the UK?
GMC says that, thanks to the legal actions, the content of the book hasn't been published by the MSM, but small minority groups, in the UK, have launched campaigns of persecution against them, based on the book.
Judge – Can you name them?
GMC – Yes, we had legal actions against the Madeleine Foundation and the name is Anthony Bennett.
Judge – What relation exists between this group and the publication of the book?
GMC says that AB used parts of the book, interviewed Gonçalo Amaral and invited him on a forum.
Judge – Did the group exist before the publication?
GMC isn't sure about that. But he's able to say that the material they used was based on the allegations of the book. They published pamphlets that said that Madeleine hadn't been abducted. They distributed them to his neighbours and in the whole Leicestershire. This led AB to receive many warnings from his juridical counsels and finally to be sued." 
Link to court transcript of Gerry McCann
What we see above is the McCanns cleverly using Tony Bennett's case, in an attempt to take down Goncalo Amaral. I wonder, had they been successful, would the McCanns have given Snr. Amaral a 92% reduction in his costs, so much as to see themselves out of pocket, as they did with Bennett - not a chance.
Further to my point, Tony Bennett has openly admitted to doing the main part of the research for Richard D Hall's documentaries. Again, these documentaries push Bennett's theories (above), yet they still remain available, and unchallenged. The McCanns could, should they choose to do so, apply to the court for Bennett to be jailed for a further breach of his court order, yet they don't.
I ask again, why?
I've seen the excuse that the McCanns would have to disprove Hall's documentaries to have them removed, that is of course hogwash. I refer once again to Bennett's order:
"The Defendant undertakes not to repeat allegations that the Claimants are guilty of, or are to be suspected of, causing the death of their daughter Madeleine McCann; and/or of disposing of her body; and/or of lying about what had happened and/or of seeking to cover up what they had done.”
As a self confessed researcher for the Hall DVD's, Tony is again in breach of his court order, and yet he still evades prosecution. In fact the McCanns, by agreeing to reduce their costs, actually made a loss when they twice defeated Bennett in court.
Does that sound like the Kate and Gerry we have come to know?
Come on Tony, you're quick to quote the bible when it comes to dishonesty, yet yourself and Jill have lied continually for a number of years. You've done your level best to bring down any anti McCann who stands against your vile controlling ways, and you've done so through vicious untruths. The game is up, time to tell your employers - nobody believes you.

Oh, one more thing...

You asked for this Jill, no literally, you asked for it...

I didn't even go into how you used Matt Hasker, a young estate agent who lives 20 minutes from your own home, to troll myself, Carla Spade, and Andrew on twitter. It was blatantly obvious he hadn't been following the case, yet he managed to find himself on your forum, then to twitter, and straight to our accounts, armed with, and repeating your lies - that Jill, is incitement.

By accusing me of the crimes you did, and knowing what you alleged was false, you showed your true colours. Especially with the sexual assault lie. There are many, many people who have had their lives shattered by sexual abuse. What you and your associates have done is beyond despicable, more so given the high number of people around you who have suffered the effects of that type of crime. You disgust me, in fact you disgust most people.

As for you Tony, it's high time you gave up the pretence; you're a charlatan, a fake, a liar, and a nasty, vicious old man. You've used that fetid forum for your own personal gain, and been caught more times than a dose of clap in Chavsville.

...and so it was written in The Bible 

Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal faithfully are His delight."

Proverbs 12:22
