Richard D Hall - Charlatan or Fool?
Anyone with a reasonable grasp of this case will know Bennett provided Richard D Hall with much of his “research” and Hall has repeated it parrot fashion. By doing so he has lost all credibility because he has many of the basic core facts completely and utterly wrong.
It does not matter how many views he has had, Hall is either very gullible or a person intent on deliberate misinformation.
Lets take an erroneous core fact about Robert Murat, as an example there are many to choose from.
Bennett has written time and time again that by the end of 2007 the tapas 7 had all changed their minds about seeing Robert Murat outside 5a on the 3rd May
RDH states in his film that by the end of 2007 they were all singing from the same hymn sheet and had changed their minds about RM (around 51mins in his film 4 Buried by Mainstream Media)
So how does Bennett, Hall or anyone else explain in April 2008 (note the date) that Fiona Payne and Rachel Oldfield gave Rogatory interviews to the Leicestershire Police where both stated Murat was outside 5a, on 3rd May.
Both Payne and Oldfield stated “Murat came up to me and shook me by the hand and said my name is Robert Murat”. No mistake, no uncertainty.
According to Bennett and Hall, these statements never happened, but it is in the PJ files for all to read.
What this shows clearly is that members of the tapas 7 intended to implicate Murat, whatever it took and this is what Bennett/Hall do not want placing under a spotlight.
So pages and pages of guff over the Smiths, but nothing on Fiona Payne or Rachel Oldfield
Why, would be a good question?
So I would like to ask the following and I am sure Rosalinda will give RDH the right of reply:
Did RDH do his own research?
If not from where did he get it?
Did RDH check this research with other independent sources?
Did he know of the Rogatory interviews?
Did he read them?
Has he met Clarence Mitchell in a professional or private capacity?
Can RDH/Bennett or anybody else produce a single document which shows FP and RO have retracted their statements made in April 2008?
If he cannot, will he apologise for misleading people and edit or withdraw his claims?
RDH has made many similar type claims casting aspersions on Murat and the Smith family amongst others, based on ill founded research. Will he withdraw any accusation he cannot support as a fact, backed by official sources.
Many of his claims are polar opposite to information given by GA in his book and the PJ in their official files, so is he implying they are wrong and his and Bennetts research is correct?
Where did he get the specific information that the tapas group all retracted their id of Murat by the end of December 2007.
Bennett and Hall work the same way copious volumes of dross with an occasional nugget of interest.
They rely on nobody questioning or checking what they say.
Bennett often writes, “he who writes it should prove it” this however does not, it seems, apply to Bennett or Hall.
Conspiracy lurks around every corner, innuendo, supposition and lies constitute research, unrelenting denigration, to stifle any opposite view whether that is in the form of a word, a blog or rival documentary.
Willing unquestioning disciples hanging on their every word.
Charlatans are people expressing expertise and knowledge which they do not have, they make things up and pass it off as true.
Is there a better description?
These errors have been pointed out to RD Hall and so far he has done nothing to rectify them, however, if RDH is a genuine guy, who has been badly misled he should admit it and come clean.
We all make errors of judgement and we have all at some time, been taken for a fool in the sad tragedy of Madeleine McCann.
