On this occasion it seems they won’t stop at attacking a man in his nineties (one of Ireland and Bartholomew's recent victims is in his nineties and a family friend of Mr Wightman). This follows Bartholomew's and Ireland's bombarding of a seventy year old cancer sufferer in 2011 with malicious emails. Once again they have proven themselves dishonest and despicable individuals who have little intelligence and no shame.
Anyone else who suffers electronic or other forms of harassment by these individuals should contact the Westminster Journal who will happily forward them to the relevant police criminal case number. Or go direct to the police.
The Westminster Journal applauds the police for taking this matter seriously even though both Bloggerheads and BNOR blogs are now such specks of irrelevance on the Internet that one wonders why Ireland or Bartholomew bother.
Such co-ordinated campaigns of harassment, following warnings, are likely prosecutable and both perpetrators will be prosecuted in due course.
If anyone else should be attacked by this extreme pair (they are capable of fabricating the most extraordinary accusations in their endless and failing attempt to land a punch on behalf of Britain's feeble far left) then DO NOT communicate with them or try to talk sense to them.
Ireland and Bartholomew are known to use fake emails and steal identities and will stop at nothing to try to trick victims into a response. DO NOT engage with these criminals.
You are far better off just contacting the police.
The Westminster Journal issues its full support to Mr Wightman and his family at this time and looks forward to the day when both these cowardly stalkers Timothy Ireland and Richard Bartholomew will be brought to face English justice for their anti-social, bullying and childish behaviour.
UPDATE November 2012
Online Stalkers Richard Bartholomew's and Tim Ireland's ongoing and desperate attempts to claim they are not online stalkers has taken a major turn for the worse. They were described as, err, "online stalkers" in this Huffington Post article http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/10/30/the-nadine-dorries-interv_n_2047181.html Consequent attempts on Twitter to get the author of the piece, Mehdi Hassan, to alter his description of them were rejected. Hilariously, Hassan asked "who are you?" when Australian Tim Ireland of the once visited political blog Bloggerheads pummeled Hassan with complaints, with his vile pug Bartholomew yapping at his heels. Hassan eventually told them to "go away and stop pestering him." (Alas, these 2 see that as carte blanche to make late night calls, tweet profanities and stalk until their victims can take no more).
After this failure, the two stalkers then decided to update old posts on the Westminster Journal Editor Dominic Wightman; making out that friends of his were no longer in touch and that he was somehow less active in deleting extremists like them from having any sway in the mainstream (Bartholomew lost his blogspot on the Guardian and Tim Ireland is persona non grata anywhere these days). Such lies can be expected. Usually the two of them smear by wrongly associating Wightman with Charlie Flowers of the now defunct group the Cheerleaders - someone Wightman has not been in contact with for over three years since Flowers took to the rather neanderthal approach of threatening these two drop-outs and other left wing Trots.
Last year Wightman wrote that "if he found these two stalkers on his drive ....he'd love to run these two losers down in his Tory Blue Range Rover". He was speaking figuratively. The CPS agreed and defence of the statement never went to court. He agrees he should have chosen his words more carefully - temporarily making stalkers seem like victims - and it goes without saying that he has never ever threatened anyone with violence. When Bartholomew and Ireland were investigated for bad character towards the end of 2011 as part of Wightman's planned defence, more dirt than anyone could ever have expected came to light and the authorities have been made aware of just who these two weirdoes are. The CPS paid Wightman compensation for the whole experience.
Wightman is proud of his stance against these two stalkers. "Face down bullies. That is what I was always taught. Then you'll see the cowards emerge," smiles Wightman. "Bartholomew is an ugly troll - understandably very bitter at the cards God dealt him. Ireland is an unbalanced dweeb - a maniac - and should never have been allowed into Britain in the first place. As pathetic as the most pathetic Trots on the web. Powerless and spent. Irrelevant in all contexts. Hilarious how they pretend they are not stalkers when they have been caught red-handed so many times now. Those of us who share the same political sphere can't help but laugh at them. STALKERS!"
