A charlatane called Rachel North (Rachel McFadyen) who runs a suspicious blog called "Rachel From North London" has made a lot of money and publicity out of claiming to have been on the carriage bombed on the 7th July 2005. BUT why has she always been so fit and well? How has she heartlessly made so much money and created so much publicity when no one else has wanted to? Why does she specialise in false accusations? Who can back up her claims? What is the TRUTH? Is her story a SCAM?

A web of lies

Is this the face of an honest woman?

Rachel North who runs a blog called Rachel From North London was probably never on the carriage bombed on July 7th 2005. This blog will examine her web of lies...... ever since July the 7th 2005 Rachel North has been making a lot of statements about July 7th. She calls the bombed train "My train." But was she in the bombed carriage?
Is she a scammer?

Is there anyone who can back up her claims? There is never anything from witnesses to support her statements.

We would like to know....

Why does she stick so rigidly to the official version?

Why has she never produced her own detailed account of events in the carriage?

Why is she so fit and well when no one else is?

Is it possible for a group of people to have protected her from the bomb blast, as she claims? Why was no one and nothing else protected from the bomb blast if so?

How does she have no difficulty talking and talking about the subject?

Why does she make a living out of the bomb blast?

Why are her feelings so different from the other survivors feelings?

Why does she let the press take advantage of her position?

Have a look at this fire fighter's description of the scene provided by this link.

How is it possible to escape that blast without being affected? But, Rachel North says she did. She says she was in the carriage where the bomb was detonated at Kings Cross station and she was never hurt at all. Here is her description of the bomb scene. Very suspicious!
" We were okay."
She also wrote " We tried to keep each other calm, I remember saying: "If anyone's boss gives them grief for being late, we know what to say to them, eh, girls?"People laughed and we kept saying, "not long, it's the long walk to freedom, nearly there".
Is this the reaction of a woman who has experienced the bomb carriage described by the fire fighters?

Rachel's descriptions of what she experienced in her first account which she printed on her blog... sound like the experiences of people from numerous carriages along who were not directly affected by the bomb blast. This is always the case when she is talking about small effects. When she is talking later on about shock and other experiences her stories are fantastical.
Why is she jumpy about the CCTV question?
Look at how her story of her "eye witness account" changes when she is speaking on a platform, provided by this link. She is coming out with very strange views which deeply offend many survivors. Now, on this link, you can see she is saying that instead of leaving the train in a rush directed by the driver, everyone in the bombed carriage stood and held hands in the dark. ( Who is "everyone"?) This contradicts nearly all the other evidence.

Look at how her account has changes. Here is a quote ( 18 June 2007) from someone who has been watching Rachel's statements. He was watching a television interview with Rachel.

"Jon then talks to Rachel North. Rachel recounts of her experience in the bomb train (Piccadilly line) which she boarded at Finsbury park. Rachel says "I felt this huge {pause} POWER smashing me to the floor."

Ooooh Rachel that was close. Were the words 'heat blast' or 'fireball' on the tip of your tongue then? Rachel, do be careful. ..... "

But wait, what’s this? Rachel says "The air was thick with smoke" Hummm. Interesting. SMOKE. Something's burning right? What causes smoke? Heat or fire, for example incendiaries - incendiary explosives. Why am I talking about fireballs, smoke and incendiaries? Well, because TATP, the supposed explosive used, doesn't give off flames or significant heat when it explodes. Oh dear Rachel.... I'm not saying your lying......"

Rachel North is now, these days, saying that she suffered a loss of hearing after the bombing. TATP, the chemical used to explode the carriage of the train does not make a huge noise, its often described as 'silent but deadly.' We can provide a TATP description via this link. Also, a quote from this link provided by the MOD..

"The explosion of TATP is similar to the decomposition of azide, for example, which produces nitrogen gas but little heat, is used to fill airbags for cars. TATP is the most extreme example currently known, but it may be possible to design molecules that behave as an even more powerful explosive."

Fire fighters were automatically sent to the bomb scene. Their description of the bomb scene appears accurate and ties in with the known effects of a chemical bomb.

On Rachel's first account, which emerged on her blog before TATP was discovered to be the source of the bomb fuel she wrote:

"Normally I board half way up the train, but the train was so full, I walked up to the front of the train.
I was in the first carriage, behind the driver's carriage, standing by the doors - it was absolutely packed.
Even more people got on at Kings Cross. It felt like the most crowded train ever. Then, as we left Kings Cross, at about 8.50am, there was an almighty bang.
Everything went totally black and clouds of choking smoke filled the Tube carriage and I thought I had been blinded.
It was so dark that nobody could see anything.
I thought I was about to die, or was dead. I was choking from the smoke and felt like I was drowning.
Air started to flood in through the smashed glass and the emergency lighting helped us see a bit. We were OK.
A terrible screaming followed the initial silence."

We notice that the fire fighter, Mr Roche, is also supposed to have talked about smoke but this might just be journalism embellishment. Mr Roche did not write the account in the Guardian himself. The journalism embellishment might have been inspired by Rachel. Rachel North is a media and advertising executive with an eye for an opportunity.

It is always possible that she was never on the train at all. It is more likely that she was on another carriage that was not badly affected by the bomb.

We want to know: how is it possible to "hold hands in the dark" with other people ( who don't seem to exist) while a huge surge of "power" smashes you to the floor? How is it possible to be smashed to the floor by a chemical bomb and emerge fit and well...chatting about what to say to your boss on the same morning?

Looking at Rachel's first account again.

"I was on a crowded train to work. It was 8.40am when I boarded the rammed Piccadilly line train at Finsbury Park.
Normally I board half way up the train, but the train was so full, I walked up to the front of the train.
I was in the first carriage, behind the driver's carriage, standing by the doors - it was absolutely packed."

Thats extraordinary isnt it. Is it possible?

She boards half way up the train, usually. But on this day she decided to go to the front of the train to the carriage that would end up being bombed. She says the middle carriage was packed, so she will have had to have pushed her way through a large crowd with determination to get to this carriage at the front. You can understand Lindsays motive for going straight to the top of the platform to board the front carriage since his idea was to bomb the driver, and bring the whole thing down 9/11 style. But Rachel? She went from the middle of the platform to the top she says. Pushing your way through a crowd like the one she describes takes five minutes at least. There are always seven long carriages on a tube train at least. There usually isnt any time, you have to wait for the next train, which would have been the logical thing to do. The middle carriage was packed, so she didnt get on it. The front carriage was packed, so she did? After making her way through this very large crowd in two minutes. No mention of her trying any of the train carriages in between the middle and the top ones.

There should be CCTV from Finsbury Park tube station it does not concern the bombers.

We think Rachel North should explain herself.

Realistically no one can back up her claim. The small number of wounded people on the carriage who did survive were in terrible shock- and would not of noticed her or anyone and the firemen arrived after the able all left the carriages.!

Instead of personal remarks try looking at the points raised. There were stories about people holding hands in the tunnel but these stories come from survivors walking down the tracks while they left the other carriages. There is no record of people holding hands in the bombed carriage.

DOES anyone remember holding hands with Rachel in the bombed carriage?

There should be witnesses either way. To the bombed carriage if she was holding hands with other people in it and if she was in another carriage? There never seems to be anyone

Rachel North.A few possibilities.

1.She is genuine.

2.She is a government spook who's job it is to perpetuate the lie(the human face)

3.She is a scammer trying to cash in on the affair.

4.She was a plant out of harms way on the train whos job it was after the dust had settled to perpetuate the official ripping yarn.

I go for number 4

never in that carriage said...

Rachel North in our opinion is not a good liar. Just an ambitious one.

We definitely agree that she was out of harm's way on the train. It it is foolish to imagine that anyone could survive a blast like that and strange that everyone takes her pathetic bait. Enough of Rachel's bait. Let's have some honestly around here

RN has churned out millions of words in the past three years. It is abundantly obvious that RN's role was damage control. Her rapid 'promotion' to self-appointed media contact and spokesperson for Kings Cross united was highly suspicious, right from the outset.

I doubt that there is a single eye-witness or any CCTV evidence to support RN's claim of being where she claims to have been on 7/7.

Her claim that she she took a taxi to hospital to treat a wound 'where the bone was protruding from the wrist' has about as much credibility as a scene from a TV soap opera. A wound that evidently did not prevent her from pounding the keyboard 24/7 in the ensuing days/weeks/months.

She was lapped up by the press but that does not mean she is about "damage control." She is so eager to push herself everywhere shes caused damage to everyone and does everywhere she goes.

She has been lapped up by the press thats all.

We agree she made it up about that wound. Shes published photos of herself with no scar at all

In Rachel's early reports, she claims to have been ten yards from the blast but this was later changed (for effect?) to 10 feet!

This unsubstantiated claim borders on the outrageous. Considering the carnage that would have been around her, the only injury she allegedly suffers is a cut wrist.

The whole Rachel North saga smells of co-ordinated BS.

26 people killed on the Kings Cross train (exactly half of the total reported deaths on the day - excluding the alleged perpetrators). Rachel claims to have been standing 10 feet from the bomb. Although initially claiming to have been 10 yards from the explosion, she later modified her account to 10 feet ... when challenged on this, she claimed that the first report of 10 yards had been 'a typo'.

Between her blog, urban 75, Alex Cox, 911 truth and various other forums, PM's and Emails; Rachel must rank as one of the most prolific writers in internet history!
