UKIP is renowned for running smear campaigns and fabricating documents to use in malicious prosecutions against whistleblowers but the story concocted by Caroline Stephens took fabrication to a whole new level.
In November last year, Stephens assured me she was pregnant and I had to take her at face value because I did not want to cause her any stress whilst potentially carrying my baby.
When I met her on 3 December last year, she was not able to produce any evidence of a pregnancy test that she claimed was taken at her GP’s surgery in Chippenham, Wiltshire just 5 days previously.
If genuinely pregnant, would there be a problem with supplying hard evidence to the father of her child? Indeed, this proved a major obstacle for Stephens but she tried to sweep it aside claiming “those are my personal medical records and I can’t show them to you.”
In the weeks since then, despite several written requests to obtain the medical evidence of her phantom pregnancy, no such evidence has been forthcoming because it does not exist. Stephens concocted the pregnancy story to gain sympathy because she did not want any negative exposure of her lies in the public domain.
So what type of woman would fabricate a phantom pregnancy? Usually the type of woman that is desperate for a baby and convinces herself that she is pregnant in an act of self-comforting delusion. But in the case of Caroline Stephens was it just plain old female manipulation at work?
On 6 November last year, after we made love several times the day before, I asked if she wanted me to get her pregnant and her response was “I’d love to have your baby Sy.” Was she under the influence of alcohol at the time because she drinks a bottle of wine every night to cope with the isolation and loneliness at home caused by her neglectful ‘husband’.
Stephens has admitted that she has not had a normal relationship with her husband for many years since their second child was born and that they speak only about the children. She described it this way: “We have a business arrangement for the sake of the children and nothing more.”
Understanding the complex machinations of the female mind is no easy task for any man but fabricating a plantom pregnancy is something only a psychiatrist could understand and give the appropriate treatment to a woman that clearly suffers from chronic depression.
Not content with the emotional damage she’d inflicted on me with a phantom pregnancy, she then incited evil troll Neil Jackson to abuse me on Twitter about the apparent abortion of my baby, which he thought was mightily amusing. Stephens has a history of hiring stringers to smear her critics and opponents, which led to her dismissal from Leave.EU in February 2016.
The extent of the online abuse coupled with the incitement of a woman that either concocted a phantom pregnancy or aborted my child is simply shocking. How could any sane, decent woman resort to measures like this?
Incredibly, playing the victim card, Stephens made a complaint to the police for online harassment against me because I exposed her lies to the public. The simple fact is that Stephens is a public figure, she was the Campaign Activist Support Manager for #VoteLeave during the referendum and such warped lies must be exposed in the public interest.
Contrary to being harassed online, which is nonsense, Stephens has harassed me in the most appalling manner possible and which the evidence proves beyond contest.
I have tried to explain to this deluded woman that if the case went to trial, her medical records to determine the issue of the pregnancy test would have to be disclosed in court during the pre-trial discovery process. Stephens lives in a dream world, thinks her powerful political connections can protect her from anything but in the real world she has been caught bang-to-rights.
I exposed the truth about what happened to the Article50 campaign in November 2016 when she destroyed all of the material on this website in a jealous, bitter rage because UKIP stopped her from speaking outside Parliament on 23 November.
The simple truth is that people had a right to know why a campaign they had invested donations in had suddenly been dismantled. I had a moral obligation to explain to campaign activists and donors what had happened to the wrecked campaign and where their money had gone. I led the campaign, did 95% of the work, amounting to over 400 hours, whilst Stephens sat back and did nothing than plot and scheme on the telephone all day and night with UKIP trolls.
When UKIP and the Bruges Group ordered her to destroy the campaign, she did so without hesitation, thus wasting all of my work and the money donated by Brexiteers who wanted to put pressure on the Government to invoke Article50.
I don’t want people to hate Stephens, it would not help, she needs treatment for depression and alcohol dependency. I don’t hate her for what’s she’s done, I pity her because I loved her deeply and I just want her to stop lying and get well with professional help.
There is no point in continuing to lie because the evidence against her is damning and it is incontestable. The lying game is over and the truth is out.
I have now reported Neil Jackson for the second time in three years for online harassment but with his corrupt police connections will anything be done about it?
The real issue though with Stephens is her frequent contact with Nottinghamshire Police. Wiltshire is over 200 miles from Nottinghamshire and as a result, why isn’t the unstable Stephens contacting Wiltshire Police instead?
This is another matter that she refuses to explain, she’s above the law apparently according to her because of her political connections but at a criminal trial before a jury, she would be destroyed under cross-examination.
Stephens does not listen to rational advice, her born-again Christian friends have convinced her that one day – “anointed by God”– she will lead the entire Brexit movement, no doubt into ‘the promised land’.
The only abiding promise I can make in this case is that I will continue to expose the truth in the public interest until Caroline Stephens stops lying to the public.
