Attwood’s Unsilenced

In spite of efforts to stop his crusades against crime, Shaun Attwood has been quite rightly reinstated on YouTube today; he is now unsilenced and free to broadcast again

Whilst the thorn in the sides of the poisonous pair that are Omid Scobie and ‘MeGain,’ Duchess of Sussex that is ‘Yankee Wally’ quite wrongly remains banned from Twitter, this morning YouTube did the right thing in reinstating the crusading campaigner Shaun Attwood’s ‘True Crime Channel’ after taking it offline earlier this week.


Subscribed to by an astonishing 667,000 individuals and featuring everything from interviews with eccentric author and tellybox tattler Lady Colin Campbell to female armed robber Linda ‘The Black Widow’ Calvey, Attwood’s channel was temporarily censored this week on the completely false basis that it supposedly promoted cyberbullying.


Yet again illustrating that social media channels – including not only YouTube but also Facebook and Twitter especially – act irrationally over account management, the thankfully temporary closure of this widely respected channel illustrates the problem of the vast size of these organisations. With millions to ‘police,’ the result is that the likes of YouTube are unable to differentiate between genuine abuse of their platform and targeted campaigns to ‘take down’ particular individuals.


Cited amongst the cases that caused the “day of many strikes” closure was an interview with The Lost Boys star turned activist against child abuse Corey Feldman and also videos about Jeffrey Epstein and his wicked associates – including one featuring both the Ghislaine Maxwell: An Unauthorized Biography author Kirby Sommers and this publication’s very own co-founder, Matthew Steeples.


Now, however, quite rightly, the censorship of this informative channel has been stopped; Shaun Attwood is back and we look forward to yet more excellent content from this wise and witty gentleman.

Shaun Attwood tweet about YouTube
The Widnes born author and activist took to Twitter on Saturday morning to announce his YouTube channel had quite rightly been reinstated after the social media giant reviewed his account. In a message to him, the firm stated: “After taking another look, we can confirm that [‘Shaun Attwood’s True Crime’ account] is not in violation of our Terms of Service. We have lifted the suspension of your account and it is once again active and operational… We’re sorry for any inconvenience or frustration this has caused.”
Recent interviewees on the channel have included the author Steve Wraith – whose books about his encounters with criminals were discussed in a 4 hour, 36 minute one-on-one that has been viewed over 15,700 times.
An especially fascinating interview on the channel premiered on YouTube on 20th May May this year. Viewed over 26,800 to date, the episode featured Linda ‘The Black Widow’ Calvey discussing her debut crime novel, ‘The Locksmith.’ Described as “the true crime book of the year,” Calvey’s novel is listed as: “If you think you know everything about the East End’s toughest gangsters, think again. Meet Linda Calvey, aka the Black Widow. Growing up after the war in the East End of London, Linda falls in with local gangsters including the Krays, Freddie Foreman and Ronnie Cook. When the love of her life, Mickey Calvey, is gunned down on a job gone wrong, Linda resolves to carry on his work. But in 1990, after years of living in fear of her lover Ronnie Cook, Linda finds herself accused of his murder alongside Danny Reece, in a trial that shocks the nation. Still, Linda sticks to her code of honour, refusing to confess. Until now… After 18 years behind bars alongside notorious names including Rose West and Myra Hindley, she is released. This is the final truth about her life and what happened the day Ronnie Cook was murdered.”
Matthew Steeples, editor-in-chief of ‘The Steeple Times,’ has appeared on the channel on a number of occasions recently to discuss true crimes cases including that of Jeremy Bamber, Max Clifford, Luke Durbin, Rolf Harris, Stuart Lubbock, Madeleine McCann and Ghislaine Maxwell amongst others.
A 2-hour, 14-minute interview with Matthew Steeples on the channel has been viewed over 138,900 times since it was uploaded on 8th May this year. With 5,500 likes and over 940 comments on this one video alone, here is a YouTube channel that should be promoted and not censored.
