Anne of Chiswick

Six months after removing my article on Anne of Chiswick I have had a change of heart and put it back up for the public to read. Why? Because the decision I made at the time was in response to pressure I felt from a few aggressive individuals who resented what I had written and I was shaken by their hostility towards me. Now, after the dust has settled and I have had time to reflect on things I regret that I allowed myself to be bullied into removing it and have decided to publish and be damned. I have learned something though and I won’t be allowing the comments to be posted without very careful consideration.

Most of the information about Anne was collected from articles that I have found on the internet and in particular the Daily Mail and I am unable to vouch for the accuracy of the information. When I originally published this article I also published many comments about Anne and I felt that as the story spread around the world many of the comments I allowed to be posted were little more than gossip.

I received a number of emails from people who were angry at what they felt was an intrusion into Anne’s privacy and I issued an apology to Anne for any distress the article and comments had caused. I took the article down, in no small part due to the pressure I felt from the animosity that the article had aroused in some people but a little part of me regretted that decision.

Six months on I have decided to put the article back on my blog and for those who still wish to read her fascinating story you can find it at: https://jwdwrites.wordpress.com/2013/12/30/the-bag-lady-of-chiswick/ because you know what? THIS IS MY BLOG. If that decision makes you angry – well, you can always write a post about it and put it up on yours. 🙂
