Though she claims to be a feminist, a writer, an expert on market towns and a film and television location tour guide, Sandra Shevey tends to busy her days writing complaints about amongst others Asda, Debenhams, Tesco and Waitrose on Twitter. She also took to the medium in September 2015 to publish claptrap falsely claiming Matthew Steeples is behind websites that name her as a gatecrasher of “two parties every night” and is described elsewhere as “a very dodgy and strange woman… exiled in London”. Another source lists Shevey – who strangely compares her fame to that of Lord Byron – as “a world-class crackpot” and in one interview her own “big question” was: “Why am I blacklisted?” The answer is surely obvious.

She needs to take her rightful place……………… In the asylum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Lord Byron comparison is funny. “Like Lord Byron with his maiden speech in the House of Lords, I went to sleep and awakened famous.” Plainly on another planet. Nutty.
That Oxford Book of Quotations is invaluable if you read little and require to give the pretence you do…..
Do you think Miss Shevey uses it daily then?
No, M/s Sharpe
What an ugly woman: And I don’t just mean her looks. Her Tweets are peppered with nastiness. She is obviously delusional and a female equivalent of David Pun.
Good looking woman, ugly photo. David Pun is much nicer than I am. Met him today at an event. He is not as disturbed by this filth as I but then he is not a journalist and has not as much to lose.
How do you define “filth” dearie?
What Fascist Filth!
Perhaps if you had decided not to take to Twitter to write nonsense attacking me using a photograph of me, you would not find yourself in this position.
You claim to be a journalist but are plainly incapable of doing research. If you had checked the facts before accusing me of being behind the sites you mentioned, you would not find yourself listed here now.
Stick to writing trolling letters to supermarkets. It’s all you are good for.
What’s Fascist about this article? It’s simply factual. You are a ligger Sandy. I’ve seen you snaffling up the canapés like a Dyson on many an occasion. Now, at least, you’ve actually been highlighted to those who give events. Do not dare crash my parties ever again.
Oh yes, Shevey is definitely a ligger. You can read more about her and this gang of goody bag grabbers here:
Enough liggers there to write an entire series of novels.
Events have goody bags. Perhaps I should not take them when offered or donate them to Syrian Relief???
If you had no right to be there, then you have no right to the gift bag either. Period.
My name is not `Sandy` it is Sandra Shevey. I am not a ligger. I am a journalist and a blogger. You don`t have to allow anyone into events who has not been accepted via email. Do not threaten me. You have turned my career into a filthy Fascist side show. Shame on you. Just as I have hit my 72nd birthday. The food at the event I attended today has gone largely uneaten and the organizers begged us to eat more. I get paid zilch for most blogs and features. Thus I expect to be watered and fed if and when I attend. Writers earn shit. Shame on you for suggesting that writers should not eat up. I generated over 5 thousand pounds of pr for the Burgundy region in France. I did 4 features each of around 1,500 words. The features appeared sequentially on one big syndicate for around 6 months and then a few years later on another. I should be wined and dined by France until the cows come home. I should also receive the French medal of honour.
Oh God… Here she goes…
Rod off you silly sod!!!!!!!!!!
Yet more proof how lowbrow you are dearie. Now go away.
She should marry Denis Doble. Sandra Doble has a ring to it.
Or a relation of Marie-Claire, The Dodgy Baroness von Alvensleben.
Is she mates with Tatiana Giraud also?
A friend told me about her walking tours. She knows very little about anything and spouts nothing but drivel. Do NOT pay for them. In fact, just avoid them.
More antiSemite BDS boycott of Jewish business. FEW PEOPLE INTERVIEWED HITCHCOCK..and I am one of the few women writers who did. He vetted people quite carefully. I have perhaps the wildest interview he ever did as it was toward the end and he knew Universal intended to terminate. Those who have taken the tours, and they have been running since 1999. know just how shocking the interview is. I play sound bites on all tours. Despite Hitchcock`s penchant to shock he was decent enough and even asked me to write his authorized biography.
Hard up as ever I had to decline because then as now I live from hand to mouth. He was notoriously cheap and declined to finance the project.
Oscar Winner Set Designer Henry Bumstead gave Sandra a set of original set art from `The Man Who Knew Too Much`. `Bummy` as he was called references Ms. Shevey in an interview he did for UCLA Oral History. `This is Sandra Shevey`s favourite film. She is nuts about it`.
Most of the reviews over the years have been excellent..there have been a few spies and informants but not enough to kill business altogether.
You are plainly nuts. There is no reference to Judaism here apart from by you.
As for for Alfred Hitchcock, he probably (if you ever actually met him) decided he’d rather not have anything to do with you. Nobody sane would want to be involved with anything to do with you. You are offensive, rude and talk utter drivel.
Canopy? Chuppah?? I see a veiled reference. IF I EVER MET HIM..this delusional vindictive smear…America hires nutters to do their dirty work. You should hear the 3 hr audio. He wanted very much to have much more to do with me but wouldn`t support the venture he suggested financially. And I simply could not surrender three months even with the master without financial support. Sadly! Nobody sane.You are an insane vindictive paid informant. I think the American Embassy should caution you about vilifying American citizens. People will read this shit and believe it. My features have been regularly appearing for over 50 years. I am winner of the 2014 UK Scoot Tourism Award for features that appeared online at Visit Britain, Travelbite, etc.
I’ve had the misfortune to have her gatecrash one of my parties. She made a beeline for the drinks and canopies and overpowers guests with her non-stop witterings and opinions in an extremely high pitched voice. It just make you squirm from sheer boredom.
The woman does not pause for breath, guests make a hasty exit from her orbit. The woman does not realize how incredibly annoying she is.
All London events organizers should be warned and have her pictured circulated so she is unable to crash more events with her freeloading buddies.
Anyone gatecrashing should be asked to leave. I think this comment is infamous. Which party did I gatecrash and when? Canopies..you mean `chuppahs`? Another AntiSemite smear. Fascist Trash…this is why I say and a friend laughs when I say it..they`re all underclass..but she says Some have gone to Eton…proves my point..
Carry on reading into things as you see fit. It only makes you look more and more foolish.
I hope she didn’t take them with you….the canopies I mean….especially if it was raining.
(muses…)Why does no one ever gatecrash my parties….must be because I am dull and don’t have canopies in my garden
Maybe it`s because you`re a Londoner….
you do sound frightfully odd….the sort of person who really should be somewhere isolated and well guarded
That’s an understatement even by your standards Mr Wayde.
Shevey crashed our Christmas event last year. Though she wasn’t on the list, we made an exception as she claimed to write for a journal and seemed to know some of the other guests. She was the first to arrive, last to leave, and didn’t stop eating or talking (frequently at the same time) for the entire night. We have now added her to our blacklist and will instruct staff not to let her in this year.
She is bound to claim that you have made this up. She will probably claim it is an anti-Jewish conspiracy. She will probably claim I am you. She’s off the scale.
Actually I do claim she`s made it up as my relations with London publicists is reasonably good.
I doubt you have the capacity for courtesy or kindness. I obviously had an email invite although I might not have been on your list.
I would like to know your name and the name of the event? Email of acceptance was probably on hand. Why am I blacklisted? I am a bona fide writer and journalist. This is vicious selective targetting of bona fide writers.
Obviously I had email confirmation to attend…
These kinds of comments are not only defamatory. They are pathological and incite toward race hate. Your blog should be banned and so should you.
There is nothing here that is racist or hateful. This feature simply shows you for what you are and your comments echo just such. You are a shameful woman who should not have taken to Twitter to abuse me when you knew nothing about me. Stick to writing silly complaints about supermarkets. It’s all you are good for.
I’ve seen this ligger at work. She hoovers canapés (note spelling) up with such gusto and boy does she love a freebie. She cannot write properly and seems to suffer from an inability to spell. Her understanding of grammar amounts to something well below par and I must say, she is also rather musty in appearance. Avoid, avoid and doubly avoid.
Who pays your bills (the CIA) whilst you sit around jerking off decent people all day long? Who has the time to reply to this filth???!!
Matthew I have written two major biographies, done over 500 major interviews (most of which have been published) I have been winning awards in America (Hollywood Women`s Press Club for a feature on Barron Hilton) and in Britain since the Sixties when I started writing.
What have you done but sit around bitching about people who have done stuff? I see you vilify poor Rolf Harris and his lovely daughter..Harris has been framed..but this is precisely your style. You enjoy a good crucifixion.
You are a yenta, a gossip, a second guesser. And you publicly discredit yourself by running a filth sheet which makes Hearst seem respectabie.
Yellow (Badge) journalism at its worst!
“Harris has been framed”! You sick weirdo. You should be locked in a cell with him. Then will you speak ill of the paedo’s victims? Very wrong.
I was not advised I had no right to be there and thus had (have) every right to the goodie bag. BAFTA is now giving awards to British and Americans. Whom do you want to save this stuff for? Rich American students?
How do you define filth dearie? Look in the mirror Matthew…you can smell it…
My husband and I encountered this woman at a hotel in London. We had to go to another venue and she was going around telling everyone that it was ridiculous that she’d been there over half an hour and that no food had come out. We only just met her and she was already asking what we did and where we were going and how well we knew the organiser. We were afraid she’d follow us, but managed to slip away quietly while she was annoying someone else. We haven’t seen her since thankfully.
There is nothing more tedious that Jewish people who use any criticism of themselves as an excuse to cry anti semitism.
Just face the fact that you are deeply unpleasant and clearly not well liked is the reason you attract flack and I imagie a lot comes from Jews ashamed of your greedy behaviour
Sod off Sandy! She is like a hurricane but spits canapes and sausage meat instead of bringing wind and rain. Dirty!
After a brief chat with her, I have to say this one’s a ‘Legend in her own Mind’ Reminds me of the Critic in Mel Brook’s satirical film – ‘History of the World’
I met Sandra at a London event yesterday. She was very intriguing and yes may be a little strange but she had the most wonderful stories from when she interviewed famous people even wrote for the New York Times at one stage. She was also one of the last people to interview Alfred Hitchcock by cassette tape ha ha ha. Written 2 books which I need to hunt down and taught me a thing or two about some celebrities. By far the most interesting person in the room that day. Happy encounter.
Perhaps she’s on medication. She is normally utterly deranged and very offensive.
