Busted - Fake Video! - You may, or may not have seen the - "A Note From A Stranger On The Train" – video, first released by the BBC on the @bbcthesocial Tweeter page on 5 October 2018 - that on the last count showed 2.24M views - made by a Scottish lass complaining that - what many could conceive as being a "compliment", whilst others may have taken it as a condescending gesture, - seems to be "fake".
I'm totally sick of "Fake News" and why I decided to add this to my blog-posts here, as I want it on the record because the BBC in the UK have no intention of revealing what it is I have exposed. On closer inspection you can clearly see she is holding-up the alleged note that was written on white - 'blank' paper, yet appears to have printed lines on it instead and pretty much like the type of notepads you can buy at most stationary stores - seen below. There also appears to have been two authors.
Look closely and you can see the paper is lined on the other side of the paper where the alleged note was written. Additionally, it seems to have been written in 'black-felt-tip-pen', which many of us know when you write on such thin paper it "normally" absorbs through to the other side, and which it clearly doesn't in this case. It could be argued that “she” decided to rewrite the original note on a piece of fresh paper, yet if that’s the case, then that in itself is deceiving, as you’d really want to show the world the original, if of course you was ever that bothered to make a replacement in the first place. Yet that wouldn’t wash if this “case” was presented to a judge and jury, as like us, they too would expect to see the original note that was first written, - though what we seem to be presented with is "another", a second version of the alleged note of what "Jane" is holding-up in her video.
Furthermore, an handwriting expert, which I'm certainly not, would have ripped the note to shreds as he would have highlighted the alleged note was written by two different authors; just look at the "T's" 't's' - as they are completely different on both sides of the paper and most certainly written by two separate individuals. Even the pen used, appears not to be the same.
That's why I proclaim it as being a “fake.” It just doesn’t look genuine to me, as we are being shown two types of paper it was allegedly written on. - If I am wrong, which I don't see that I am, then I question the motive as to why two pieces of paper was used to demonstrate what had happened to her? For if we are not being presented with the original, then it of course could have been doctored, even worse - totally fabricated. I also do not buy-in into the excuse that the "authors" original handwriting was far too bad to display for "video" reasons, - as Jane should at the very least explained this to be the case. Besides, we can clearly read "Count to 10! Then open", so the handwriting would not be that indistinguishable.
This post was in fact first written by a female with no axe-to-grind with anyone, particularly with her "fellow-sisters". And of course I/we would defend anyone who was being-wronged. Yet I/we don’t see that as being the case here, and why I/we felt compelled to write this post.
In fact I find these types of "fake" videos, (we see all over the internet) as harmful to us all, male or female - and especially if they’re being "faked" in order to get as many views as possible. There sadly seems to be a hidden agenda; - a "Male vs Female" one, in which for some "unknown" reason, to me that is, "they" wish to divide "us" even more. Though more puzzling is the fact that the BBC, their journalists failed to notice what I have and that the note in question is blatantly fake. Let's learn to love one another, I say, and no matter what colour, creed, race or gender - as I believe we were all born "equal", though sadly in a world where "equality" is clearly void. I hope both guys and gals share this post so as many people get to read it and to help counter-balance the 2.24M viewers who have been tricked into thinking this harmful video is real.
P.S. this is the type of writing pad I am referring to, lined one side and blank the other.
