Colin Gregg, “Sophisticated, Predatory Paedophile”, Former Boss of one of Britain’s Biggest Royal (Children’s) Charities, Convicted of Molesting Boys

 Convicted paedophile Colin Gregg lodges appeal against his child sex conviction

Disgraced Gregg was handed a 13-and-a-half sentence after being found guilty of molesting young boys

Apr 1 2017

Disgraced headteacher Colin Gregg has launched an appeal against his conviction and sentence for child sex charges.

The millionaire son of the Gregg’s bakery founder was found guilty of nine counts of indecently assaulting four victims.

A court heard how the 75-year-old charity boss molested the boys, who were aged between 11 and 14, from the early 1960s until the 1990s.

The abuse was carried out in a swimming pool, in a car and at his home gym.

Branding him a “sophisticated, predatory paedophile” Judge Robin Mairs jailed Gregg for 13-and-a-half years at Newcastle Crown Court.

Now, it is understood that Gregg has lodged an appeal against both his conviction and sentence.

Northumbria Police has urged any other victims of Gregg to come forward.

DS Chris Wilson, who led the investigation, said: “The victims in this case showed immense bravery to come forward and stand up in court to give the evidence that ultimately put their abuser through court.

“It was a terrifying ordeal for them but their actions have helped convict a predatory paedophile and I am sure that convictions such as this will help encourage other victims of sexual abuse to come forward.

FERGIE CHARITY MAN CHARGED.

7 July 1996

The former boss, Colin Gregg,  of one of Britain’s biggest Royal charities has been charged with indecently assaulting a boy of 14.

Colin Gregg, 55, ex-administrator of the Yellow Brick Road charity, was arrested after the teenager told his parents he’d been interfered with following a golf club trip.

He has been bailed to appear before magistrates at Newcastle upon Tyne next month.

The married father-of-three, who was arrested on April 25, had his home in Newcastle searched and a computer disc removed by members of Northumbria Police’s Child Protection Department.

The boy is believed to have told police he was also interfered with in a sauna by Mr Gregg after a cross-country run.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/local-news/chilling-report-abuse-cruelty-feversham-1350428

THE charity responsible for a Tyneside school at the centre of a child abuse scandal says it does not know who was in charge of the youngsters.

As revealed in the Chronicle, two former care workers were jailed for abusing their positions to steal the childhoods of vulnerable pupils at Feversham Special School.

The charity Mind was the residential school’s custodian trustee, looking after assets but not running the facility for emotionally and behaviorally-disturbed children, aged from six to 19.

And Mind boss Paul Farmer has admitted he has no idea who was actually in charge of the now-closed special school, where predatory paedophiles Kevin Brown and John Leslie Duncan worked as carers.

The school, owned by the charity Mind, – warnings about the abuse were  ignored.

The charity Mind acted as the residential school’s custodian trustee, looking after assets but not running the facility.

A board of governors managed the school, but Mind says it kept no record of their names.

Mind’s chief executive Paul Farmer said: “We are deeply shocked and saddened by the abuse that took place at Feversham.

“Mind was the custodian trustee of the property from which the school was run and was not involved with day-to-day running of the school.

“Mind is no longer involved with any residential educational establishments.”

The Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, have been affiliated with another convicted establishment paedophile – Jeffrey Epstein

Roberts has claimed she had sex three times with Andrew in 2001, including during a group sex session with eight other girls at Jeffrey Epstein’s home in the Virgin Islands.

Roberts has alleged that girls as young as 12 were regularly flown on the £30 million jet to locations around the world where Epstein (and other members of the elite) would abuse them.

Nurse tells of Jimmy Savile’s visits to Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary

Jimmy Savile meets seven year old Lee Claffey of Eastwood Gardens Kenton Newcastle who was visiting the Royal Victoria Infirmary to have his broken arm checked. 7th June 1986

‘Jimmy Savile visited the children’s wards of the Royal Victoria Infirmary in 1986/1987 and 1991.

He (Savile) also visited Newcastle General Hospital in the early 1990s but witnesses were unsure of exact dates

Nurse Phil Brown remembers encountering the disgraced radio and TV presenter in May 1987 at ward 16 south where youngsters were receiving treatment for leukaemia. Today he is calling on hospital chiefs at the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to let the public know the exact dates of his visits.

He also claimed Savile was formally invited into the building.

A spokesperson for the trust said senior staff were taking the disgraced star’s alleged visits to the Royal Victoria Infirmary very seriously.

However, on Saturday a statement from Sir Leonard Fenwick, trust chief executive, said no concerns had so far been expressed by staff working at the time.

Mr Brown, a nurse for 37 years, said: “Jimmy Savile visited ward 16 south where children had leukaemia.

“It was in June 1987 and a pivotal weekend because it was the Great North Run. I have rung the NSPCC and police involved in Operation Yewtree as speaking as a nurse, I am dismayed. I’m not the only one who remembers him visiting.

“The moment it came out that he had been in Newcastle I informed the RVI. So far I think they’ve got their dates wrong. People need to be aware he visited in 1987.

He appeared to be in Newcastle for the Great North Run but for whatever reason he was able to visit the RVI.”

Prof Sir Alan Craft launches scathing attack on new North East hospital

 

  • 26 Jun 2013

ONE of the country’s leading experts on childhood medicine has launched a scathing attack on plans to build a specialist emergency hospital in the North East.

But in an unprecedented attack Prof Sir Alan Craft, former president of Royal College of Paediatrics, said the proposals for the restructuring of children’s services in the region was concerning.

Prof Craft, a consultant paediatrician based at the RVI, and his wife, Anne, children’s nurse and director of nursing and former health visitor for North Tyneside, sent a letter to The Journal outlining their views.

Another RVI doctor –Dr Camille De San Lazaro

Lazaro began work as a forensic paediatrician at the Lindisfarne Centre in the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle in 1989 following the Cleveland sex abuse inquiry. This was the first post of its kind in the country.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/just-how-bad-can-doctor-1576127

Lord Justice Kennedy told the court that in the 2002 libel trial, the doctor had been “completely discredited” in relation to her handling of a number of allegations of sexual abuse prior to February, 1995.

2002 –

Calls were today made for a review after a North East man had his conviction for raping a boy overturned because of the evidence of Dr Camille San Lazaro.

Dawn Reed and Chris Lillie

Dawn Reed and Christopher Lillie

Dr Lazaro, senior lecturer and consultant paediatrician at Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary and Newcastle University was criticised for her role in the investigation into” false” claims of abuse at a Newcastle nursery by Dawn Reed and Christopher Lillie.

The pair were accused in a Newcastle City Council report of systematic sex abuse of dozens of children at a Newcastle nursery. But Mr Justice Eady declared them innocent of all charges and condemned the report as a legal `shambles.’

...supplying children to a paedophile ring whose members had raped and abused their young victims, and used them in the making of child pornography.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/abuse-cases-doc-face-probe-1603253

Her evidence has been blamed for Kevin Brown’s conviction. He has served his seven-year sentence for raping the five-year-old boy.

Brown’s first appeal was dismissed in 1997 but his case was referred back to the Appeal Court by the Criminal Cases Review Commission which investigates claims of miscarriages of justice. The CCRC obtained three medical reports, including one from a doctor at the forefront of the 1987 Cleveland Child Sex Abuse Inquiry, that suggested injuries to the boy may not have been caused by a sexual act. Ruling the conviction unsafe, Lord Justice Kennedy said medical evidence at the trial had been oversimplified to the detriment of the defence. He added that a large part of the prosecution case at trial had been reliant on evidence from Dr San Lazaro.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/abuse-cases-doc-face-probe-1603253

Looks as though Lazaro was a ringer to ruin any sex-abuse cases.

The Yellow Brick Road charity became The Children’s Foundation – headed by Prince Andrew as Patron


“We have not received any evidence since the conviction that there are any further victims of Colin Greggs who have not yet reported abuse to us.

“However, if there are victims out there then we will listen to them and we will believe them regardless of whether the abuse is recent or of a historical nature.

“These sorts of offences are not, and nor have they ever been, acceptable behaviour and national media stories over the last few years should provide reassurance of that to any victims out there.

“Safeguarding vulnerable victims of crime is our absolute priority and if there are other victims out there then we would encourage them to come forward. We will believe you.”

Gregg helped set up the family business and also worked as a charity fundraiser, a social worker and as a headteacher at a prestigious North East school.

Gregg, of Homefarm Steading, in Gosforth, Newcastle, claimed he was the victim of a police witch-hunt and alleged the complainants were looking for compensation.

But last month a jury at Leeds Crown Court found him guilty of sexually abusing young boys.

As well as 13-and-a-half years in prison, Gregg has been banned from working with children and was ordered to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/convicted-paedophile-colin-gregg-lodges-12827854#ICID=sharebar_twitter

Colin Gregg was employed in the children’s department of Newcastle Council as a social worker where csa was rampant.

Gregg taught at Durham School, a school in Newcastle’s west end before moving to Newcastle City Council’s children’s department as a social worker. He then became the headmaster at Tynemouth King’s School.

The court heard Gregg was a former headteacher in Tynemouth, and Talbot House school, and also taught at Durham School, as well as being employed in the children’s department of Newcastle Council as a social worker.

During this time he operated a running club from his home at Homefarm Steading, Gosforth.

The other allegations are said to have taken place between 1988-91, at locations including Gregg’s home gymnasium.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2808603/greggs-bakery-heir-sexually-abused-string-of-young-boys-in-his-home-gym-and-swimming-pool/

Sasha Wass QC, defending, asked Carol Gregg: “Knowing the allegations, has it caused you any concern that Mr Gregg has contact with your grandchildren?”

The former nursery nurse replied: “Not at all.”

When asked if Gregg’s three daughters have concerns leaving him with their children, Mrs Gregg replied “no”.

The court also heard from Gregg’s former colleague Andy James, who he worked with at Talbot House school in Newcastle.

When asked how the former head teacher interacted with the pupils, Mr James said: “He was highly regarded by the boys who thought the world of him.

“The staff thought he was an innovator with new ideas, which all the children seemed to respond to very positively.”

Ms Wass then asked Mr James if he was concerned by Gregg’s behaviour towards the children.

He replied: “No, not at all.”

Mr James went on to say: “He is very dedicated to young people becoming better people, particularly those coming from deprived backgrounds.”

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/colin-greggs-wife-tells-crown-12619655

The first complainant, now in his 60s, claims Gregg sexually assaulted when he was aged 13 while he was at boarding school.

At the time Gregg was involved with the charity TOC H, a Christian charity.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2808603/greggs-bakery-heir-sexually-abused-string-of-young-boys-in-his-home-gym-and-swimming-pool/

Doing the math….abuse happened approx 47 yrs ago – 47 yrs ago was 1970 – so Colin Gregg was probably  involved in the TOC H charity in the 70’s – when Jimmy Savile was also involved.

Gregg molested a young boy while he worked as a running coach, a court has heard

In 1989, Gregg became the director of children’s charity the Yellow Brick Road Fund.

During this time he operated a running club from his home at Homefarm Steading, Gosforth.

The runs would start and finish at Gregg’s house at the time, on Linden Road in Gosforth.

 
Gregg started the now famous run Greggs Children’s Cancer in 1982 Run –

Image result for colin gregg and alan craft

Chris Peacock’s cancer was treated by Professor Alan Craft and this year (2013), as in the 20 previous years, he will be taking part in the Children’s Cancer Run.

Chris bounced back from his brush with death and went to The King’s School in Tynemouth, where, at the age of eight, he discovered a passion for running. The then headmaster, Colin Gregg, a member of the famous bakery family, found out about his cancer and decided to set up a fundraising run in Gosforth Park in which his school and others could take part.

RVI Children’s Cancer Research Unit/Run Dr Alan Craft
 sponsored by Greggs

FEB 2013

As well as the five-mile run there will be a Mini one-mile run for the under sevens who must be accompanied by an adult.

The Children’s Cancer Research Unit at the Royal Victoria Infirmary has just taken on two new recruits, pathologist Dr David Ellison, and cancer expert Dr Steve Clifford, to find ways of improving survival rates.

But the pair will only be able to carry out the research if this year’s Children’s Cancer Run is a success and raises at least #150,000. (extortion)

 “The staff on Ward 12 are second to none and we owe them – especially Prof Alan Craft – everything.”

The run is on May 13, at Gypsies Green, the Leas, South Shields.

The event is being sponsored by Greggs the Bakers which will provide a picnic for all runners.

Sacred Heart Church in Gosforth to celebrate centenary

8 May 2012

The church was given a major refurbishment after the arrival, in 1984, of Irishman, Father Tom Cass and while the works were carried out, services were held in a prefabricated building, which became known as Uncle Toms Cabin.

On one occasion, Father Cass persuaded Jimmy Savile, still wearing running gear after completing the Great North Run, to appear at the summer fair. He also once recognised the Irish singer Dana in the congregation and brought her to the altar to sing the final hymn.

The church has a link with Newcastles St Cuthberts boys school, now called now St Cuthberts High School, which itself celebrated its 130th anniversary last year. The present Parish Priest, Father Jim Dunne, was the last of several members of the clergy to teach at the school.

Savile was a regular visitor to the Great North Run

NO EVIDENCE: Jimmy Savile at the Great North Run in 2000

 Jimmy Savile at the Great North Run in 2000

26 Jun 2014

 JIMMY Savile visited hospitals on Tyneside on three occasions, visits which coincided with the celebrity’s regular appearances at the Great North Run.

But a report  found no evidence of any inappropriate behaviour during Savile’s time in Newcastle’s hospitals.

An investigation by the Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was triggered by a former member of staff, who contacted Operation Yewtree detectives after recalling seeing Savile at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in 1991.

The investigation found that Savile had visited the RVI’s children’s wards twice between 1986 and 1991 and had also visited Newcastle General Hospital during the early 1990s.

Trust chief executive Sir Leonard Fenwick said: “Jimmy Savile visited the children’s wards of the Royal Victoria Infirmary in 1986/1987 and 1991.

“He also visited Newcastle General Hospital in the early 1990s, but witnesses were unsure of exact dates.

“…these presentations appeared to coincide with the Great North Run. ”.

Savile, famous for his charity fundraising, took part in the Great North Run at least 18 times and was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2009.

Asked by The Northern Echo in 2000 if he had a message for the people of the North-East ahead of the run, Savile said: “Lock up your daughters, girlfriends and wives. I don’t want to misbehave b 2007 with ut I can’t help it once I arrive on Tyneside.”

^ Tony Blair, Alistair Campbell  and Bill Clinton- both Blair and Campbell were in billionaire convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s black book (Clinton took many trips on Epstein’s “Lolita Express”)

Epstein had assembled a powerful network of contacts encompassing the worlds of politics, business, royalty and celebrity and even Bill Clinton.

The inclusion of Lord Mandelson and an office address for Tony Blair has raised questions about the extent of his relationship with the Labour government.

But last night – some 48 hours after the link between Epstein and Lord Mandelson emerged – the former Labour spin doctor was still refusing to comment about his dealings with the disgraced billionaire.

 

Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland)November 13, 2000

THE Prime Minister’s official spokesman was quizzed by police over the murder of TV presenter Jill Dando, it was revealed yesterday.

Alastair Campbell, one of Tony Blair’s closest aides and friends, met officers so they could eliminate him from their inquiries.

He was interviewed after a newspaper wrongly claimed he had joked about being Jill’s lover.

…in April 1999 but officers felt obliged to interview him.

Campbell said he had met her when he reviewed the papers on her breakfast TV show.

He also said: “I believe the police had a number of calls pointing out my resemblance to their e-fit picture of the killer.”

Clark scandal descends into tales of blackmail and lechery

1994

THE SEX SCANDAL involving Alan Clark, the wife of a former judge and her two daughters degenerated further last night with allegations of blackmail and indecent exposure.

Jane Clark, wife of the former defence minister, accused Valerie Harkess, 57, and her daughter Josephine, 34, of demanding pounds 100,000 to keep allegations that Mr Clark seduced them and Josephine’s sister, Alison, out of the newspapers.

Mrs Harkess and her 64- year-old husband, James, a former deputy circuit judge, denounced the blackmail allegation as ‘an absolute lie’. Her daughter accused Mr Clark of betraying her family’s trust by indecently exposing himself to her and Alison when they were 13 and 15.

Son of Greggs bakery founder, 75, is jailed for 13 and a half years for indecently assaulting four young boys

Mar 30 2017

  • Colin Gregg, 75, is the son of the founder of the popular Greggs bakery chain
  • Gregg had been convicted of nine counts of indecent assault against four boys
  • He was jailed for 13 and a half years and described as a ‘predatory paedophile’

‘Your defence was the complainants were fantasists and liars. The jury heard their evidence, given with clarity and considerable courage.

‘They found the lies were on your part and the fantasies were you sexual desires for young boys.’ 

He showed no remorse, emotion or expression as he stood in the dock to learn his fate.

GUILTY: Colin Gregg trial jury returns guilty verdicts to nine counts of historic sex abuse

Former head teacher Colin Gregg has been found guilty of nine counts of indecently assaulting four boys.

A jury at Leeds Crown Court deliberated for 11 hours and 43 minutes before reaching eight majority verdicts and one unanimous verdict.

Gregg, of Homefarm Steading, in Gosforth, Newcastle, remained emotionless in the dock as the verdicts were read out by the jury foreman.

Judge Robin Mairs told the married grandfather that he would be sentenced at a later date.

Prosecutors said on the surface Gregg lived a life of decency but in reality he “concealed his true nature beneath a veneer of respectability” and he “exploited his position in society to perpetrate abuse”.

Gregg was granted bail and will be sentenced at Newcastle Crown Court on March 30 at 2pm.

The jury found Gregg guilty by a majority on eight of the counts and unanimously on the ninth.

Judge Robin Mairs told him that the fact he was granting bail was no indication of sentence.

He said: “These are serious matters and a custodial sentence is inevitable.”

The trial at Leeds was a retrial.

A jury failed to reach a verdict when Gregg was tried last year in Newcastle.

15 April 2016

Former head teacher, employed in the children’s department of Newcastle Council as a social worker, charity boss Colin Gregg, denies 26 indecent assault charges dating from the 1960s to the 1990s, relating to nine complainants aged between 11 and 15.

Assault said to have taken place between January 1963 and December 1991

in County Durham,

Newcastle

Seghill and Alnmouth, both in Northumberland

on the premises of schools where he worked, in a dormitory and in a school swimming pool.

Newcastle Crown Court was told the married father-of-three, who became wealthy after helping the family business to grow, has a ‘strong determination to sexually abuse little boys’ and there was a pattern to his offending.

Gregg was also a sports (running) coach.

A court heard Gregg, son of the founder of Gregg’s the bakers, was a biology and chemistry teacher at prestigious Durham School and the complainant was a pupil.

He told jurors at Newcastle Crown Court he was molested in Gregg’s study at the school and in his car.

The complainant said he joined Durham School as a boarder in the 1960s and claimed he was abused within months.

Gregg, of Gosforth, Newcastle, denies all the charges, and his position is that ‘each and every one of the complainants is telling calculated and deliberate lies’, Paul Greaney QC, prosecuting, told the jury.



Gregg trained as a teacher and taught at prestigious Durham School, which he had attended as a boy,
the court heard.

A FORMER pupil at a school where Colin Gregg taught told a court he was sexually assaulted by him in a swimming pool.

The man, now in his 60s, says Gregg put his hand inside his swimming trunks while helping him to improve his breast stroke at prestigious Durham School.

Jurors were told the alleged offence in the swimming pool on the grounds of the school is said to have happened in the 1960s, when Gregg was a biology teacher.

Early days:

In 1967 he joined the family business which was started by his father John Robson Gregg (freemason) in 1939, when it was still a ‘modest outfit’

Gregg worked with his brother Ian Gregg for three years
and the pair ‘created a very successful and large business which, in due course, became the public limited company Greggs plc‘, Mr Greaney said.

‘As a result of the growth in his family business, the defendant became a wealthy man.’

1969:  Gregg returned to teaching, taking a job at St Aloysius, after realising “business wasn’t really for me”
St Aloysius a Roman Catholic -boys-only state school in the London Borough of Islington, North London.

“At the age of about 29, having made a success of his life in business in three short years, Colin Gregg returned to what seems to have been his main interest in life, namely working with children

The prosecution said Gregg will claim the allegations against him were motivated by people trying to win compensation.

In 1970 he returned to working with children but continued to work for the bakery during the holidays and remained a board member.

The following year he became a social worker (1971), then became head of Talbot House, (formerly Feversham), a school for what he termed ‘delinquent children’, the court heard.

Vile abuse of children at a Tyneside special school has not been included in the first phase of investigations planned by an independent inquiry into child sex abuse.

Ex-Feversham residential school staff jailed for sexual abuse of vulnerable boys
Kevin Brown and John Leslie Duncan who have been jailed for historic sex crimes

John Leslie Duncan, 61, from Gateshead, and Kevin Brown, 58, who was already in jail, were convicted of the abuse they committed against young boys in their care.

The charges related to incidents that took place throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s
Duncan was convicted of 15 charges, which included 10 counts of indecent assault on a male and three counts of indecency with a child, and sentenced to 15 years in prison.

His crimes were committed as he worked at Shotley Park Childrens’ Home in Durham and at the Feversham residential school in Walbottle, Newcastle, both of which have since closed.

Brown was sentenced to six years on top of his current eight-year sentence after being convicted of seven charges, all relating to incidents at Feversham school too.

The report, by Annie Bishop, then inspector for children’s services, was the last time an outsider had observed the controversial school in the Walbottle area before its closure in March 1997.

The charity Mind acted as the residential school’s custodian trustee, looking after assets but not running the facility.

A board of governors managed the school, but Mind says it kept no record of their names.

Mind’s chief executive Paul Farmer said: “We are deeply shocked and saddened by the abuse that took place at Feversham.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/local-news/feversham-school-sex-abuse-suspects-1352535

Hon Lowell Goddard, chairman of the long-running Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA), announced what would be included in the first phase of investigations into the extent to which institutions have failed to protect children from sexual abuse.

He later became head of the junior school at King’s School, Tynemouth, and in 1989 became director and administrator of a children’s charity (THE CHILDRENS’ FOUNDATION LIMITED (02528291)) which raised substantial sums.

‘On the surface, he has lived a life of decency, indeed one of distinction,’ Mr Greaney said opening the case.

He said the prosecution case was that Gregg was a child abuser, regularly molesting boys, in a breach of trust.

The complainants,
now aged from their 30s to their 60s, were aged 10 to 15 at the time, the jury was told.


As well as the nine complainants
which the charges relate to, the court will hear evidence from three others who claim they were abused.

Greggs’ CEOs involved with Prince Charles…via BITC and through the Prince’s trust (Sir Michael Darrington)

Prince Praises Greggs’ Work in Community

May 22, 2003

The head of North-East bakery Greggs has won Prince Charles’s praise for his work in taking business into the community.

Mike Darrington was presented with the prince’s Ambassador Award yesterday at a Business in the Community event for his personal contribution to responsible business practice, through the work of the Greggs Trust, fund-raising and other activities such as the Greggs Breakfast Club.

Sir Michael Darrington ex-CEO of Greggs (ran it for 24yrs) works with the Prince’s Trust

By 1983, after growing his family’s chain of bakeries from just one to 300, Ian Gregg stepped down from his role as managing director and handed the mantle to Michael Darrington.

Ian attributes the success of Greggs during the 1980s and 90s to Darrington, who was awarded a knighthood in 2004 in recognition of his services to business and to the community in the North East.

Mike Darrington  joined Greggs in 1983 as Group Managing Director.

Sir Michael Darrington :

Education: Lancing College, Harvard Business School

Lancing College – alma mater of the Peter Ball and his brother Michael Ball, Trevor Huddleston & Tom Driberg
Headteacher James Woodhouse from Lancing College wrote in support of Ball

Sir Michael Darrington :

Newcastle University – executive member

University of Sunderland – Sir Michael received an Honorary Doctorate of Business Administration.

Sir Michael set up the Pro Business Against Greed campaign, urging firms to tame excessive pay for leaders and make companies – and society – fairer. (that’s “rich”)

Mike Darrington takes a long term view of developing a business. He is a keen supporter of ethics in business – by putting Values at the heart of the organisation he believed that Greggs people would make a positive difference for themselves, their customers and the wider community – he is also an enthusiastic advocate of the ‘ enjoy ‘ word.

Mike believes that although companies are owned by shareholders, they should also be for the benefit of staff, customers and the wider society.

After previous significant involvements with the CBI Confederation of British Industry and BITC Business in the Community, he is now engaged in a number of charitable activities, including the Prince’s Trust, and also with community projects and campaigning for a fairer society.

Greggs –  In 2008, we made pledges to the Prince of Wales MayDay Network (a BITC Business in the Community Programme):

Among the initiatives already under way, BITC has started a series of The Prince
of Wales’s “Seeing Is Believing” visits to Burnley, and as one result alone, Greggs,
Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s are backing breakfast clubs in 15 of the
most needy primary schools in Burnley for a minimum of three years.

Greggs and Asda are also supporting the Burnley SPACE youth Bus, working in
partnership with the police, which is deployed to different parts of the town
to provide advice, support and leisure facilities for young people.

19 November 2015

An innovative youth project in Burnley which provides support for disadvantaged youngsters has been awarded £115,000 by Children in Need.

The cash will be allocated to the Space Youth Bus over the next three years to fund six part-time staff members and the running of the bus, which provides a free, safe, friendly environment for young people between seven and 20.

INCLUDED in Greggs‘ latest financial results was the news that the baker had created a full time job for one of the homeless people it has been working with.

The Newcastle-based company is signed up to a Business Action on Homelessness project that was launched almost a year ago under the Business in the Community (BITC) banner, and run by Newcastle charity the Cyrenians with pounds 250,000 in funding from the Northern Rock Foundation.

As one of the lead businesses involved, Greggs supplies mentors and work placements for people on the Ready For Work scheme, which aims to get people back into the world of employment after they have been homeless.

Since the scheme started last September, 38 people have been placed with companies in the region, which along with Greggs also includes the likes of M&S, KPMG, NRG, Sage, Carillion and Barclays Bank. Of the placements, 31 completed their work experience and 22 have secured employment.

Greggs chief executive Ken McMeikan said: “This was reviewed at Business in the Community and the North East scheme is the national leader for the number of work placements who then go on to secure employment.

McMeikan’s interest in working with homeless people originally arose after he attended the Prince of Wales Seeing is Believing programme in London.

Organised by BITC, the project takes business leaders out to see homelessness first hand on the streets of the capital.

Dr Michael Toman – principal of Feversham in 1996 – Feversham closed in Mar 1997

1996 -2000 – Director Gregg at Feversham/Talbot House Trust

Appointed on 15 November 1996
Resigned on 31 March 2000

July 1996 – the last inspection of Feversham, by Newcastle City Council’s social services department

1997: Gregg stood trial in 1997 and was acquitted of abusing one of those three, the court heard. The other two complainants came forward after publicity about that case but it was decided those allegations should not proceed to trial.

Dec 1996 – Feversham principal is Dr Michael Toman (so Gregg was director at Feversham when Dr Michael Toman was there)

6 December, 1996 (Last Updated: 11 May, 2008)

Feversham is the only residential school in Newcastle upon Tyne for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. It mops up the violent and disruptive pupils other schools cannot cope with and provides care for those whose families are also in crisis or unable to contain them.

Wonder then, at a time when society is crying out for Something To Be Done about disaffected pupils, that Feversham is closing down at Christmas.

It is closing because the region’s local education authorities will no longer give a long-term commitment to the school. Northumberland in particular, which is creating 90 special education places through pupil referral units, has said the 22 children it currently places in the school could fall to as few as six next year.

“Overnight we became uneconomical. Northumberland put the nail in the coffin,” says Dr Michael Toman, Feversham’s principal.There are 37 children aged between six and 13 attending Feversham, an independent establishment set up by MIND, the mental health charity, in the late 1960s to cater for almost twice that number.

Situated on the western edge of Newcastle, it is a low, spacious, modern building, comfortable and well-equipped, set in ample grounds with all the living and school accommodation ranged around the central dining hall. It is run on tolerant, therapeutic principles and aims to re-integrate children back into mainstream education and with their families.

“Our record is good,” says Dr Toman. “One-third of our children return to mainstream school, one-third go on to day special school and only one-third require further senior boarding provision.” A girl with learning difficulties who had suffered sexual abuse was excluded from her special school because she injured a teacher. Another with cerebral palsy was excluded from her special school for the same reason. Children come with bad dreams and chronic bed-wetting, the classic sign of inner turmoil. But these often clear up after time at Feversham.

Michael Toman argues that no matter how many pupil referral units local authorities provide, there will always be children needing residential education. The weekly boarding offered by Feversham provides stability and security, and often helps keep families “who hang by a thread” together. The school employs a social worker to work with families directly.

Staff constantly praise the positives in pupils and challenge the negatives. “When kids come to us they hate school. They hate teachers and so do their parents. We turn that on its head,” says Michael Toman. Children are on first-name terms with teachers and the ethos is one of tolerance and encouragement. “If we stopped every time we got a kick, a punch or a ‘Fuck-off’, we wouldn’t get beyond breakfast. We don’t approve or condone it, but that is the reality. It might sound woolly and liberal but we do challenge them. We just choose our battlegrounds.

“Violence comes from frustration and an inability to communicate, so we give our kids a language that enables them to express their feelings. They learn to listen to other people’s point of view.”

Every week Feversham holds whole-school and group meetings where staff and children review the week’s events and praise or criticise each other. Children have to learn to be the focus of attention.

“These are children who have previously wrecked classrooms and attacked teachers,” says Michael Toman. “They have to learn to sit down and hear other pupils say how horrible they’ve been. This is what group living is all about. Our greatest strength is that we offer consistency of approach over a 24-hour period. A day school cannot provide this.”

Classrooms are colourful and intimate, with a teacher and assistant for every eight pupils. Staff are trained to anticipate and deflect aggression, and how to hold a child who is being violent so nobody is seriously hurt.

Teachers
grow used to verbal abuse one minute and requests for hugs the next. They put in a lot of their own time, taking out pupils who have achieved or been “especially sensible” on a one-to-one basis for trips to McDonald’s or Newcastle’s Metroland. Lorraine Brewis, who teaches the youngest group, says: “They love that special attention. You are more than just a teacher to them. When they have had a bad day they might call you everything from a pig to a dog but when they have calmed down they apologise. They feel so much better if they can do that, it’s a socialising process.

“The children are anxious and disturbed by the closure. It’s a bad time for them. We will all end up with other jobs, but what will happen to them?” Eileen Chapman, a single mother whose only child, David, has been at Feversham for the past two years, says her son “sat and broke his heart” when he learned of the closure. “‘What’s going to happen to me now?’ that’s what he asked.” David, who is 12, was disruptive at middle school and his mother could not cope with him. He spent a short time in foster care. “He would storm out and not come back for hours. There has been a 110 per cent improvement in the past year. I didn’t want him to board but it has been right for him and given me a break,” she says.

Richard and Jacqueline Leightley are concerned for their son Paul, who may have to go to residential school in the Lake District, far from their north-east home. Paul was expelled from his first school at five but has made progress at Feversham. The couple, who are on income support with three other children, are unhappy at the prospect of him being so far away.

Michael Toman is convinced that authorities such as Northumberland will be unable to reduce substantially their need for residential placements. Although Feversham costs Pounds 24,000 per pupil for weekly boarding for 40 weeks of the year, he argues that this is cheap compared to the cost of the family breakdown, police involvement, care and secure units that can follow if children are inadequately catered for at a young age.

Independent residential schools such as Feversham have been out of favour because of some notorious cases of mismanagement and abuse, and because of an emphasis on integration into the community. But Michael Toman believes the pendulum must now swing back. “We are the safety valve. No matter how many PRUs the LEAs open – and the Ridings episode is just the tip of the iceberg – they will fill them and still end up wondering what to do with our sort of kids. They’ll have to send them further afield. Northumberland is looking at schools in the Lake District. Authorities are now panicking about our closure.”

DRAWING THE NATIONAL PICTURE

Despite all the publicity now surrounding disaffected pupils there has been no national survey in the past 20 years on the provision for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

However, the trustees of Shotton Hall, a pioneer EBD school which closed two years ago, have funded research by the University of Birming-ham’s school of education.

Researchers found that from 1987 to March this year, the number of approved independent schools fell by half, from 76 to 35, while the number of local authority EBD schools fell by about 15 per cent. In the first three months of the research alone, seven such schools closed. Head of research John Visser says although some “dross” has gone, “we have lost some very good schools in the past five years”.

The school of education runs the only EBD training course in the country and says it is turning teachers away who want to qualify – at a time when need is greater than ever.

The average annual cost per pupil of an EBD residential school is Pounds 25,000 to Pounds 30,000. Although many of those inspected by OFSTED are classed as failing or needing special measures, John Visser believes the inspectors apply the criteria too rigidly. “If you have had children who have been chucked out of other EBD schools, some of whom have already served custodial sentences and you are keeping them on site, in class and getting them interested in life, death and the universe, you might not be following key stage 3 of the national curriculum to the letter, but you will be achieving a great deal.

“I support the need for residential EBD provision but there has been no research into what is good or effective. That is what I am engaged in.”

These figures are taken from an article by John Visser and Ted Cole for the next issue of the Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties journal entitled : “An Overview of English Special School Provision for Children with Emotional and Behaviour Difficulties.” Contact Alan Rimmer on 01622 843104

TEACHER IN ‘BARE BOTTOM’ PICTURE SCANDAL RESIGNS; Dad Claims Staff Took Snaps of Child’s Behind

July 4, 2009

A HEADTEACHER has resigned amid an investigation into practices at his school where it is alleged he allowed staff to photograph a child’s bare bottom.

Dr Michael Toman, head of Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn in Denbigh for the past 10 years, has been on restricted duties for the last 10 months pending the probe.

He announced his resignation last night after being removed from his job along with the school’s child protection coordinator in September.

It comes after the father of a severely autistic child claimed staff kept an 18-month “neglect diary” on his child, who cannot speak, and took photographs of the child’s bare bottom.

He alleged employees at the regional centre of excellence for children with autistic spectrum disorders took the photos without parental consent, and without informing social services.

An independent inquiry was launched by the education authority and bosses at Denbighshire County Council but a report into their findings has been heavily delayed.

At the time, police also confirmed they were investigating a string of staff e-mails raising child protection concerns at the school.

Dr Toman will leave his position at the end of August to “pursue new challenges”, the council said yesterday.

It is not yet known when the report will be completed but the father of the child at the centre of the investigation said he was told it could be a matter of weeks.

Last night, a Denbighshire County Council spokesman said: “Dr Toman had been placed on restricted duties whilst complaints relating to alleged breaches of procedure were investigated. …

www.questia.com/article/1G1-202982049/teacher-in-bare-bottom-picture-scandal-resigns

POLICE and social services officers have confirmed that they are investigating child protection concerns at a North Wales school for children with autism.

Officers were called in to investigate emails from a concerned member of staff at Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn in Denbigh late last week.

The move comes after a series of controversies concerning the school, widely regarded as a regional centre of excellence for children with autism spectrum disorders.

Six weeks ago the school’s headteacher Michael Toman was suspended from duties amid a local educational authority (LEA) inquiry into a complaint made by a pupil’s parents.

Two weeks later other parents of children at the school staged a protest at county hall in Ruthin.

Two days later the LEA temporarily replaced Dr Toman with acting headteacher Richard Williams.

Then it was revealed that a 34-page inspection report by the Care Standards Social Inspectorate for Wales (CSSIW) had identified 21 shortfalls in meeting national minimum standards of care in the residential section of Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn.

Now, a member of staff at the school has emailed the Evening Leader claiming they have been threatened with the sack if they speak out about the school’s management.

“Everyone is too scared to speak out.” said one female worker at the school.

She said morale was “very low” and added: “There are some very good dedicated staff at the school who have received no support in their work with what can be very challenging children.”

Last night a North Wales Police spokesman said: “We can confirm that e-mail correspondence relating to child protection concerns at Ysgol Brondyffryn are currently the subject of joint investigation by Denbighshire Social Services and the Police.”

www.careappointments.co.uk/care-news/wales/item/4963-Police%20Probe%20Child%20Protection%20Concerns%20At%20A%20North%20Wales%20Autism%20School

Dr Toman joined the school in 1997 and he has since been instrumental in leading a team that transformed the school from being a special school into a modern, regional centre for autistic students.”

www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/inquiry-denbigh-headteacher-resigns-2782492

Last year, a group of parents held a protest over claims that concerns over standards were not being addressed.

A report by the Care Standards Inspectorate identified 14 instances where the school was failing to meet the minimum standards in 2006.

Parents claimed that by 2007 none of the failures had been acted on and there were a further seven instances of the failure to meet minimum standards.

The claims led to some parents of autistic pupils at the school staging a demonstration outside Denbighshire council offices in Ruthin.

Education officials have now confirmed that Dr Toman will officially retire from his post at the end of August.

news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/wales/8132580.stm

In the meantime, Dr Toman has been replaced by Richard Williams, deputy headteacher at St Christopher’s School in Wrexham, pending the outcome of the investigation, expected on October 10.

North Wales Police are aware of the inquiry but are not investigating, a force spokeswoman confirmed.

Gregg stood trial in 1997 and was acquitted of abusing one of those three, the court heard.

The other two complainants came forward following publicity (news reports of that trial have been removed from the internet) about that trial but it was decided those allegations should not proceed to trial.

When Gregg faced fresh allegations in 2012, he told police that similarities between the stories put forward by the nine were due to them reading details about the trial in 1997.

Mr Greaney said: ‘He was asserting that those allegations with which you are concerned were copycat allegations.’

He said there was evidence that Gregg ‘finds young boys attractive’ and had a propensity to commit sexual abuse.

Gregg was said to have abused a boy in a school swimming bath, another while letting him drive his car while the boy had hold of the steering wheel.

Mr Greaney said: ‘The overall picture is now of complainants from different backgrounds, across many years, indeed decades, and across many aspects of the defendant’s life, but all making similar allegations against Colin Gregg, namely he has a strong determination to sexually abuse little boys when he gets the chance.’

1970 Paedophile Peter Righton – Founding member of PIE, advised Home Office on reforms to children’s care home for a report that detailed how new homes should be controlled by local government.Righton gave “considerable assistance” to the governmental report, which credited him as an academic who helped to carve out plans for the training of care home workers.

As part of his research, he would travel to numerous residential centres across the UK.

“He [would] go and interview, in approved schools, individual boys and he certainly went to speak to the heads of homes,” the retired source said.

Righton had allegedly admitted taking “boys out”

1975 MIND: Peter Righton / Tony Smythe

In October 1975, Righton became chair of a working group for the mental health association MIND, with the assistance of the King’s Fund Centre; this led to the publication of Assessment of Children and Their Families: A Report Produced by a MIND Working Party Under the Chairmanship of P. Righton (London; MIND, 1975).

1976 NAMH became a registered housing association

November 1976 there was a scandal in Newcastle involving a care worker called Hugh Bostock who had abused 55 boys.

1984 Birthday Honours – Brian Roycroft

Eric Brian Roycroft – Director of Social Services, Newcastle upon Tyne Metropolitan Borough Council.
……………….

Newcastle City Council, Brian Roycroft, and North Wales care homes

On February 16th 2000 under the headline Suffer the Little Children the Newcastle Journal provided the story of one of the victims in Sunderland mentioning that the NSPCC report had referred to a web of institutional abuse and reported that 32 staff had been involved.

The Sunderland Echo also published an editorial Two Decades of Horrific Abuse and an article on the movement of staff suspects between local authorities. The Newcastle Spotlight on Abuse article is important drawing attention to the role of the Director of Social Services Roycroft in relation to the 1976 Hugh Bostock Scandal and his alleged opposition to the proposal for a register of dismissed staff. Cathy Fox’s request for Hugh Bostock inquiry info to be published was refused.

On Feb 17th the Newcastle-based Journal published the story of one victim who contacted them among the 28 who were said to have been assaulted after being placed in Bryn Alyn by the City of Newcastle.

The Feb 17th complainant mentioned that Director of Social Services Brian Roycroft visited the home to open an extension. “It was almost laughable he was singing the praises of the place yet what was going on there was evil.”

Roycroft was Director of Social Services for Newcastle 1971- 1993and before then its Children’s officer, who also acted as Director of Education and Chief Executive for short periods, and was appointed a European Social Commissioner by Margaret Thatcher as well as having a controlling influence within the Association of Directors of Social Services and the advisors to the Association of Metropolitan local authorities.

He commented in what appeared to be a prepared statement “ It is fairly common place to send children with behavioural difficulties to homes around the country, here weren’t the facilities available in the North East. It is perfectly possible that some children from Newcastle and the North East did go to some of the homes in North Wales named in the Waterhouse report. I had 42,000 children in my care during my career and I cannot possible remember where they all went. It is also perfectly feasible that I did visit the Bryn Alyn Home “ It is noteworthy that although he left Newcastle a number of years before he knew the total number of children was over 42,000

“I would often visit homes where children from Newcastle were in care as would social service staff from the city” The article includes comments from the then current Director of Social Services for Newcastle.

In 1987, that is a year after the first complaints about the conduct of the owner of Bryn Alyn were made, Roycroft who was then President of the Association of Directors of Social Service recommended colleagues at the North East Region branch meeting the placement of children in care at Bryn Alyn, speaking warmly of the hospitality he had received. He rarely mentioned his national/internationally activities.

Roycroft also made a point of advising colleagues on another occasion that he sometimes invited children in care to his home.

It was then on morning of the 18th that the Journal posed the question Why were 69 of our Children sent to Bryn Alyn? The key sentence in the article (9) is the reference to a Labour MP Chris Ruane Vale of Clwyd (and still there) wanted Prime Minister Tony Blair to assure him that prominent people had not been left out.

On the 19th the Journal again asked the question Why did they keep sending children? The article refers to the 1988 devastating report of its Director on its Children’s Homes and which included Bryn Alyn.

Roycroft who died in 2002 during the libel action against the Council and the authors of the report on the Sheffield Nursery Scandal (the Chronicle settled out of court) was also the lead member of the team who investigated the conviction of the Calderdale Social Services Director in 1988 (when he was immediate past President of ADSS) for crimes against children in care and Calderdale director was reported to have links with Peter Righton)

In 1994 Roycroft was part of the part Inquiry into Oxenden House.

A spokesperson for Greggs, where Mr Gregg held a senior role for 10 years, said: “Colin Gregg has no involvement with Greggs Plc and it would therefore be wholly inappropriate for us to comment on this matter.”

Formerly a director at the baked goods giant established by his father John Gregg in the 1930s, Mr Gregg had previously held the lead role at Kings School in Tynemouth.

During his time there, he launched the Greggs Children’s Cancer Run, now in its 31st year, after pupil Chris Peacock was diagnosed with kidney cancer and given a 30% chance of survival.

Chris Peacock’s cancer was treated by Professor Alan Craft and this year (2013), as in the 20 previous years, he will be taking part in the Children’s Cancer Run.

Since its creation, the events has raised in excess of £5m for North of England Children’s Cancer Research (NECCR), at Newcastle.

He left the prestigious school in 1990 to become the full time administrator with the Yellow Brick Road Fund, a charity set up to raise millions for projects.

The charity later became Children’s Foundation, fundraising for what is now the Great North Children’s Hospital.

Leaving the post in the mid 1990s Mr Gregg, a father-of-three, who used to work as a children’s officer with Newcastle’s social services during the early 1970s, later joined the Trinity Centre along Gosforth’s High Street – home to the first Greggs bakery – as its chairman.

Opened in 2008 the centre, connected to the church, hosts around 100 activities a week for the community.

New Square Shaping Up

THE final stages of a town square intended for a leafy Tyneside suburb have been put in place.

A team at Trinity Church, in Gosforth, Newcastle, have been planning the attractive community space since the church had a pounds 3.25m refurbishment in 2006.

But after gaining planning permission, the development was put on the back-burner as the popularity of the new Trinity Centre exceeded expectations.

Attention was turned to creating the half-paved and half-grassed town square, aimed at breathing life back into Gosforth High Street after the team received a grant of pounds 100,000 from Newcastle City Council.

At the time of the planning in 2009, the project was estimated to cost pounds 400,000. It is hoped the space will be used as place to sit, relax and chat, as well as for entertainment such as bands, markets and chess.

Colin Gregg, chairman of the Trinity Centre, said the aim of the square was to bring the local community together.

He said: “The overall aim is that the square will help bring people back on to the High Street and to eventually shop there so trade will pick up.

“Gosforth High Street used to be a thriving area. It was where the bakery Greggs opened its first store and it was a place where people came and talked.

“We want the square to be the heart of the community.”

Since the Trinity Centre reopened in 2008 it has exceeded expectations.

The church now hosts 100 activities a week and has around 2,500 people walking through its doors each week.

Sasha Wass QC, prosecutor in Rolf Harris trial, to lead island sex abuse inquiry

Sasha Wass QC, has been brought into to head an investigation into an alleged cover-up on St Helena and Ascension

20 November 2014

A prominent barrister who successfully prosecuted Rolf Harris will head an investigation into an alleged police and government conspiracy to cover up the widespread sexual exploitation of girls on a British overseas territory.

Sasha Wass QC, has been brought in after a review of child safety on St Helena and Ascension – two tiny and remote islands in the South Atlantic with a combined population of some 5,500 – revealed that a number of paedophiles had escaped prosecution amid claims of police incompetence and corruption.

Social workers said they raised concerns about a paedophile officer but were snubbed and told not to rock the boat and “enjoy the view” on St Helena, famous as the island prison of Napoleon.

1999 Charity bike ride

Morecombe – Skipton – Thirsk – Scarborough

After the success of the first 2 rides we became more adventurous and designed a new coast to coast of our own. This was to give people the chance to complete other ways to cross the country on a bike. The route was designed by Les and went from Morecambe to Scarborough via Skipton and Thirsk.

The 3 day ride included more varied terrain and scenery over 200 miles and had lots of hills, off road tracks, fast road sections and included the first cityworks riders hill climb just for fun. 12 riders signed up for the trip through Settle, Skipton, Pately bridge, Ripon, Thirsk, Thornton le dale, and Scarborough.

This ride was also on a large scale as we had a bus, a 7 ton wagon and 3 outriders from the TA. The back up was great and the route well organised in advance. We also stayed in good quality hotels on the way and provided pleanty of pub stops for a beer or two.

This ride was in aid of three charities: –

  • The Childrens cancer research fund at the R.V.I. Newcastle
  • The Yellow Brick road appeal Newcastle
  • The Evening Chronicle Sunshine fund Newcastle.

We enlisted the help of the Mayor of Morecambe to start the ride and the mayor of Scarborough to meet us at the end.

£3,250 was raised for our chosen charities with the cheque presentation at the Civic centre again with our charity representatives.

http://www.newcastlecityriders.org/Events.html

The Barry Sisters – June, Angela and Ann – were the toast of the North in the late 50s and 60s, performing alongside stars from Cliff Richard to Ken Dodd and Des O’Connor to Morecambe and Wise.
Angela Wright, 79, of New Marske, will join guests in Newcastle on Thursday to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Children’s Foundation, a charity close to her late sister June’s heart.
June, the only one of the three never to have had children of her own, left the charity PS10,000 in her will after her death in September.

The group had a glittering career which saw them tour the country with a host of household names.

They spent six weeks touring with a young Cliff Richard and although Angela has fond memories of the time she missed out on the chance to have her picture taken with the future superstar – she was giving birth to Martyn. The group’s “fourth member” Sylvia Scarill filled in for her.

She said: “He was very polite and pleasant, but he didn’t socialise much. Sometimes he would rehearse songs with the band in the bus, but most of the time he travelled by car with his own driver.”

Heroes for Exposing Child Sexual Abuse – Part 1 – Peter McKelvie / by Cathy Fox blog



Excellent work, Cathy! The way Britain’s paedo Establishment has treated McKelvie is utterly disgusting.


Pl read & RT!

Excellent article on Peter McKelvie & the shambolic article of falsehoods in Daily Fail & their lame (non)apology.


Heroes for Exposing Child Sexual Abuse – Part 1 – Peter McKelvie

Peter McKelvie worked as a Senior Child Protection manager for Hereford and Worcester.

As part of that work he was given access by West Mercia Police to Peter Righton’s Diary.

In his diary Peter Righton had listed the names and ages of each boy he had abused from 1957 onwards in categories of which institution the victims had been resident at the time, and most sickeningly of all, had scored each child’s level of abuse from 1 (touching) to 10 (buggery).

Peter McKelvie explains more here [6]

“One of the many reasons I contacted Tom Watson MP in October 2012 was my anger and frustration that Peter Righton had been allowed to die with just one minor conviction for possession of indecent images of children when I knew how evil a web he had spun in full sight of leading social work agencies such as the National Children’s Bureau and the National Institute of Social Work not to mention the high regard he was obviously held in at the Department of Health.

Much has been made of Savile being given the keys to Broadmoor.

Righton didn’t need the keys, he could walk in to any children’s home or local authority boarding school in the UK on ” official business ”

I was given full access by West Mercia police to Righton’s diaries and letters which gave the clues to a large network of Paedophiles with “official ” access to children.

Unfortunately my team weren’t allowed to pursue these leads ourselves as the alleged offences occurred outside our statutory geographical boundaries

We had to pass all our relevant information on to other local authorities.

With the full support of my then Director of Social  Services, David Tombs, I wrote a report for the Department of Health pleading for them to agree to fund and set up a “National Joint Social Worker/Police investigation team” so that we could pursue all the leads we had and go anywhere the evidence took us.

Righton in his diaries had made the task of investigation relatively straightforward.

He had listed the names and ages of each boy he had abused from 1957 onwards in categories of which institution the victims had been resident at the time,and most sickeningly of all, had scored each child’s level of abuse from 1 (touching) to 10 (buggery)

My Director was prepared to release me and 2 of my social workers to be part of such a team if we were seen as suitable applicants. Nothing came of this request and this huge body of evidence against Righton fell in to a black hole. A small group of us, a very senior Police  Officer, two very experienced investigative journalists and myself met with a senior Opposition Party MP in 1994 to lodge a complaint and demand action.

We named MP’s that we believed might be involved in this organised network. Nothing came of that either.

My Director David Tombs retired in 1994 and my team was closed down and disbanded virtually immediately afterwards.” [6]

Peter McKelvies team was closed down.

This was a Hereford and Worcestershire document from 1993 which Peter McKelvie authored. It mentions

  • Righton’s PIE links
  • Links to the Swedish and Norwegian “PIE’s”
  • Organised abuse in Gozo, Malta with Righton and another man involved in “trade” in victims
  • Likely paedophiles as a bishop, social services and education staff and civil servants
  • Individuals in possible major institutional abuse
  • Ability to prove that Righton abused many boys in a school 30 years ago (probably Redhill School)
  • Righton’s connections to “rentboy” scene in London
  • Righton abuse of boys, either in care or known to social services, all over the country
  • Several boxfuls of letters and his diaries

mcrighton1mrrighton2

In another document entitled “A Personal Viewpoint” Peter McKelvie suggests

  • Coordinated network of professionals involved in abuse of children
  • Access to children was easy via various official schemes
  • Children were being trafficked around the country
  • Small joint task force of 4 experienced social workers and 4 police be set up
  • Task force should investigate PIE and abuse in social work

personalreport

Peter Righton, a serial child abuser, got away with it all the way until his death in 2007, even though there was evidence written in his own hand in diaries and letters.

He was Director of the National Institute of Social Work Directors and despite his host of contacts all over Britain, and uninhibited access to children through the Social Services, Righton was never tried for serious sexual assaults or rape.

All he ever got was a fine of £900 when he was caught importing child abuse images in 1992, and separately a caution for indecent assault, probably in 1994/5 [15]

arrest1992 Sept 17 Guardian Pg5  [HT @CraftyMuvva]

How did Righton get away with it?

“..Peter Righton was questioned about indecent assaults on children by the Obscene Publications Squad in November 1994 – several months after the Hereford & Worcester investigation had been shut down, and after the BBC documentary Secret Life of a Paedophile had been broadcast [June 1]”[9]

BBC Secret Life of a Paedophile[9]

Righton’s contacts were numerous, some are outlined here Goodness and Harmony Diplomatic Connections and PIE / Diplomat Robert Alston – brother of Richard Alston[26]

Also many are here, (click on link below the picture on the number)

Greenlight Brain Peter Righton [28]

Nearly all of those connected to him got away with it as well. Most appear never to have even been charged.  Those that did get charged got lightly dealt with.

Richard Alston got away with it – at present I cannot find any conviction from 1992-95 for Richard Alston who was Peter Rightons long term partner, and Headmaster of New Barns School for special needs pupils in Toddington, Gloucestershire.

Charles Napier got away lightly. Although he had a conviction from back in April 1972 for indecency with schoolboys in his charge [15] it appears that no effort was made to look for further abuse since. Napier was charged with just two counts of indecent assault and received a 9 month sentence. This was possibly for the abuse mentioned in the letter found at Bloomfield’s House. Charles Scott Napier 1995 Dec 8 Court of Appeal [18]. Charles Napier is the half brother to Conservative MP and recent minister John Whittingdale.

Morris Fraser was connected to Righton, but in his own right was connected to many others,and a prolific child abuser wherever he went.  Bits of Books Blog has a good timeline Dr Morris Fraser, Belfast, Long Island New York, Islington[27]

A proper investigation of Fraser by the Obscene Publications Squad would have investigated the Azimuth Trust. It had featured in the television programme about Righton – Secret Life of a Paedophile[9]. Fraser had been accused of child sexual abuse in the Report of the Azimuth Trust Cornwall Council Publish 1994 Azimuth Trust Report [19]

The Paedophile Information Exchange, PIE was probably the most notorious child abuse organisation ever. Peter Righton was one of the founder members. There was documentary evidence of his host of connections to many members. Nothing was done.

(click on link below the picture on the number)

Greenlight Brain PIE[29]

Abroad Righton also had connections in Norway, Sweden, Malta and the Netherlands

Whoever is responsible for shutting down the investigation into Righton, and his connections is culpable for all the abuse carried out by Righton, Napier, Alston and others since 1994. Many serial child abusers were allowed to spend most of their lives abusing children.

The fact that the investigation did not far was not due to lack of evidence, it did not get far for other reasons. What were they?

Who was responsible?

Michael Hames was Head of the Obscene Publications Squad from 1990 until his retirement in Sept 1993, [p297] Wikipedia states 1994 [8]

Let us look at what Hames says of the investigation in his book. 2001 Michael Hames The Dirty Squad  is available here [15]

Hames on the Peter Righton Investigation

[All information and pages numbers in this section is from Hames book unless stated [15]]

Hames’s section on Peter Righton starts on page 208. He says he heard of the Righton case in September 1992 with a phone call from a detective in Evesham, West Mercia. They had been on a raid with customs, and found disturbing things at the house of Peter Righton.

Hames rang Valerie Howarth from Childline to find out who Peter Righton was, found he was a “big fish”. That day he sent 2 officers to help search Righton’s house in Evesham under a search warrant and seized a large amount of material.

They wanted to continue the inquiry continued at Righton’s partner, Richard Alston’s school in Gloucestershire, where he was Headmaster and Righton a governor, but Hames says that was not met with enthusiasm.

Hames spoke to Herbert Laming, Chief Inspector of Social Services Inspectorate, who told him that government ministers and himself were keen to get to the truth and that a comprehensive inquiry be established. This was begun by joint Police and Social services team in Hereford and Worcester.

It was found that Righton was a member of PIE and contributed a chapter of Perspectives on Paedophilia in 1981. He was charged with possession of indecent photographs, pleaded guilty and fined. Hames says that was the extent of action that could be taken against him under the law. This is correct for the images at the time, but not for his other offences.

They found Righton had written to Dept of Education to remove Charles Napier from List 99, of banned teachers. Napier had been convicted on indecency in 1972 with schoolboys in his charge.

Investigation was made into Alston’s school in West Country.  According to Hames [15] Operation Clarence was set up by him with the officers responsible Graham Passingham and Dave Flanagan, targeting schoolmasters and people involved in Education in particular, which soon traced links between Righton and other offenders.

According to Bob Long and Bob McLachlans book  [p178 [31]] Operation Clarence started to investigate a paedophile network consisting mainly of public school teachers, doctors, clergy men, and others involved in social work [31]. No mention is made of Peter Righton.

David Bloomfield (I think wrongly spelled Blomfield in Hames’s book) Chief Executive of charity Standing Conference on Schools Science and Technology was a target, where they found child abuse images in his flat and a letter from Napier [15]

Napier was employed as teacher in Cairo and the letter boasted of abuse against boys there.

Hames says the inquiry finished in 1994, and the results were disappointing despite building up a huge database.

  • Napier having previously been suspended by the British Council was suspended, and when he returned to UK was arrested, charged with indecent assault and given 18 months. [The court appeal [18] clearly states that the two 9 months sentences, one for each count of indecent assault were concurrent not consecutive ie a total of 9 months, not added together, so Hames appears to have got this wrong]
  • Blomfield [correct probably Bloomfield] was fined for possession of what was called then “child pornography” and sacked from his job. He went to Portugal.
  • Righton was cautioned for an offence of indecent assault that had taken place 30 years previously.
  • The Home Office left the recommendation from the joint investigation that a National inquiry be set up on file. [NB further research check Home Office and who might have been there in 1994]

[Would be useful if someone with the book could upload relevant pages]

Christopher Harry Ashby, UK, a primary school teacher from Kent was arrested and found guilty as well Philip Taylor [32]

This leaves many questions about the Police investigation both with Hames in charge and after he had left.

Was the investigation carried out properly when Hames was Head of the unit? Even he says he was disappointed with the outcome.

  • Was a caution really the best that could be achieved with the wealth of evidence that we now know he had in Righton’s diary? Strangely Hames did not mention such a goldmine find in his book.
  • When did the unit under Hames interview Righton, if at all?
  • Why did they not follow up Righton’s serious offences?
  • Why was no action taken against Richard Alston? Was that Hames’s decision?
  • Was this really the best the investigation into all the other contacts of Righton?
  • Why were no PIE contacts arrested and charged?
  • Was there any interference from Government departments?

Hames had a heart attack and DCI Jim Reynolds came into the squad from Stolen Motor Vehicle Squad and then took over when Hames retired [p45 [31]]. It is uncertain when Hames was off with a heart attack, or when Reynolds actually took over, and who was acting head in the meantime.

  • Why did the Unit interview Righton in Nov 1994? It was over 6 months after the TV programme.
  • Was it this Nov 1994 interview that ended in a caution?
  • Why did they not follow up Righton’s serious offences?
  • Why did they not follow up PIE connections?
  • Why did they not follow up abuse abroad?
  • Was there any outside interference from any Government departments?
  • Why was the investigation shut down?
  • Who shut it down?

It appears that Hames and Reynolds have questions to be asked about their time in charge and the lack of results on the child sexual abuse of Righton, Alston, PIE and more.

Righton moved to Suffolk, with Richard Alston to the Thornham Magna Estate near Eye, owned by Lord Henniker.

[As an aside, another child abuser Norman Walker [35] owned the Diana Quenton School, Park House, Palgrave, Suffolk, and had connections in Eye. If anyone knows  of any connections of Walker in the area I would be grateful and particularly grateful if anyone has any documents or paper from the School. Could you check them for a watermark and contact me if there is one.]

Child Sexual Abuse in 2012

Let me jump forward in time 18 years to October 2012. All this time during which children were being abused by Righton, Alston and Napier and others in PIE.

Most people in 2012 did not know that child sexual abuse was widespread and affected millions of people. That milestone had not been reached, that Rubicon had yet to be crossed.

Details about Jimmy Savile’s child abuse and the cover up of it by the BBC was just starting to come out. On 19 October 2012 the Metropolitan Police Service launched a formal criminal investigation, Operation Yewtree, into historic allegations of child sexual abuse by Savile and other people

In Oct 2012 Peter McKelvie had approached Tom Watson and briefed him on the Peter Righton case that had got virtually nowhere in 1992

On 24th October 2012 Tom asked a question, recorded in Hansard [13]

paedoringhansardHowever it is best to watch it, if only for David Cameron’s face which appeared as though he was having a severe bout of constipation.

 

2012 Oct 24 Tom Watson question re Righton network in House of Commons [12]

Tom Watson expanded a little in his blog later that day

atsonpmq1watsonpmq2

The establishment, the deep state and the child abusers themselves were no doubt very worried indeed at the spotlight being put on them as never before.

Another couple of boundaries had been crossed.

  • Mentioning child sexual abuse in the House of Commons, something rarely done and probably not done since Geoffrey Dickens
  • Bringing up the subject of child sexual abuse by VSIP (Very Self Important Persons) in Westminster and Number 10 Downing Street

(Incidentally another significant factor is that Tom Watson had a powerful enemy in Rupert Murdoch, having written a book exposing his Murdoch’s dodgy workings which helped lead Murdoch to what he famously said was the most humble day of his life, before a Parliamentary panel. So Watson was always going to get a hard ride from the Sun, the Times, Sky etc)

Peter McKelvie took the responsible course, when it was easier to do nothing. He had told an MP who he thought would take him seriously, and did. He should be warmly praised for his actions.

This was way before a National inquiry or IICSA was being considered.

In 2013 Peter McKelvie sent letters to the David Cameron and Nick Clegg only to get the brush off from a communications unit [10] Spotlight on Abuse Category Peter McKelvie.

He even got replies from non existent people. You can see many of his letters here Spotlight on Abuse Category Peter McKelvie[10]

They all show a responsible man dedicated to exposing the truth about child rape that he had evidence was happening and that had in the past been either virtually ignored by the Police or they were directed to drop the Inquiry by departments in government, despite much evidence of organised abuse within social services and child trafficking and PIE.

On Jul 8 2014 the Home Secretary to her credit, finally bowing to building pressure, announced an inquiry into child abuse, it seems probably against the wishes of other ministers including Prime Minister David Cameron.

Police opened several Operations from Peter McKelvie’s initial information.

Peter McKelvie was a major if not the major influence on the setting up of the initial umbrella inquiry Operation Fairbank by the Metropolitan Police in late 2012. This  was a scoping exercise and as a result of allegations arising from Operation Fairbank, a full criminal investigation, Operation Fernbridge, was launched in February 2013. Various spin offs came from this eg Operation Cayacos which investigated allegations of a paedophile ring linked to Peter Righton [30]

It resulted in the arrest and charging of Charles Napier, this time for crimes more on a scale of the crime she had perpetrated. Richard Alston was also jailed for 21 months.

On 23 Dec 2014 the Daily Mail’s Mark Duell trumpeted Napier’s hundreds of assaults on at least 23 victims dating back to the before his previous obviosuly insufficient charges. Tory MP’s half-brother who was known as ‘Rapier Napier’ by his pupils and helped run Paedophile Information Exchange is jailed for 13 years for HUNDREDS of sex assaults on young boys in the 60s and 70s [17]

One victim even estimated he abused a quarter of the pupils he taught [17]

Peter McKelvie gives his take in the East Anglian Daily times after Richard Alston was found guilty. [34]

Peter must have been feeling mixed emotions, satisfaction that his information and persistence had led to the starting of these Operations but frustration that the 1992-4 Obscene Publications Squad  inquiry had missed a golden opportunity to stop Napier, Alston, Righton and many others hurting more children for life.

Peter was appointed to the Victims’ and Survivors Consultative Panel (VSCP) of National Child Abuse Inquiry on Jul 9 2015 [14]. This was a surprise to many people, who although they knew of his excellent work against child sexual abuse, never had an inkling that he might have been subjected to this abuse himself.

Publicly outing himself selflessly in a bid to help others, another brave decision. A downside was that the Inquiry, now being heavily lawyer driven prevented him making any public statements.

Then out of the blue, on Oct 15 2015 came this bizarre article from the Mail, with Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill on the byline.

It was nothing short of a vicious hatchet job on Peter McKelvie.

Mail Hatchet Job on Peter McKelvie

 

mailmckelviesmearmailmckelvvsmear2mailsmearmckelv3The Mail stated Peter McKelvie

  • “plotted” to smear top Tory MP
  • gave Tom Watson false information
  • tried to wreck a top Torys career with paedophile smears
  • wrongly claimed the MP was linked to child molestors
  • made “baseless smears”
  • and his credibility has been thrown in doubt

Pretty damning stuff at first sight on a superficial basis, or if you were unaware of the true position and facts, which of course most Daily Mail / Mail Online readers are.

My opinion

I made clear my opinion at the time, as did others.

cathywrighttweetsmailslur3Stephen Wright @mailwright closed his twitter account about a week after publishing the defamatory article as is referred to above.

wrightcathyslur1

However sadly Peter McKelvie resigned next day from the panel [14]

 

mc-svcp

I am unsure of the facts and circumstances surrounding this.

  • Was Peter McKelvie’s resignation a coincidence nothing to do with the Mail hatchet job?
  • Did the Inquiry bow to newspaper pressure and invent a reason that Peter McKelvie should leave, and then advised him to resign, fearful of more bad publicity?
  • Did Peter McKelvie leave entirely of his own accord, to fight the false allegations, to prevent further publicity or even some other reason?

One thing I do know is that Peter, having done more than almost anyone else to bring the child rape and child abuse to the correct police and political avenues, time and again and face setback and cover up over 20 years, will have felt the humiliation of these false allegations deeply.

Where does this leave the Mail story by Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill? 

Well quite frankly in tatters.

None of their opinion is correct in fact.

Not one piece of evidence is provided by the Mail, and as is routine for the corporate media, no links or references to where those opinions were derived from.

The only part of article Report that is not the Mail’s or writer’s opinion is the opinion attributed to Mike Hames.

I do not trust the Mail or the two people purporting to be journalists on the byline to accurately reflect the opinion of anyone. Further proof is needed of the quotes and it would also be good to know if Hames is paid by the Mail.

That being said, the Mail says

“A former senior Scotland Yard officer, who concluded more than 20 years ago that there was no substance to Mr McKelvie’s claims about a paedophile ring linked to Downing Street, said he was ‘surprised’ by his appointment.
Mike Hames, respected ex head of the Met’s paedophile squad, added: ‘Mr Watson’s claims about the Downing Street-linked paedophile ring set the hare running on the VIP sex ring scandal. But there has never been any substance to these claims, which originated from Mr McKelvie.”

This appears to say that Hames concluded there was no substance to a link to Downing Street.

Even accepting Hames is reported accurately and his premise is true for the purposes of this point, (and of course there is much to said against), it is no reflection on Peter McKelvie in bringing the matter to the attention of the correct authorities, and Peter had good reason and information to believe what he told Watson. Note also that Hames does not deny a link to Parliament.

Hames quite clearly has a vested interest that his inquiry is not reinvestigated, as he would to a large extent be to blame if it was shown to be inadequate.

The recent Napier and Alston convictions alone show that the 1992-1994 Obscene Publications Squad investigation was inadequate. There are also many more people other than Napier and Alston who should be investigated.

The final comment that the Mail made was that “Mr McKelvie has close links to a man known as ‘Nick’. This is false. Peter McKelvie did not have “close links” to Nick but he did advise him to go to the Police, just as any other responsible person might, despite the police failings time after time in connection to child sexual abuse.

Nick was responsible for allegations which the now disbanded Operation Midland was investigating. The press have widely discredited Nick as a fantastist. I do not have the evidence to know whether this is true or not, or what is the truth about Nicks allegations.

However I believe that this was a transparent attempt by the writers to link Peter McKelvie to Nick to discredit Peter McKelvie by association. Further I believe that it was an attempt to link other VIP (VSIP) Operations to the Operation Midland one in the public mind, so as to discredit all VSIP child sexual abuse allegations.

I have no hesitation in saying that Mail article was false, and in my view defamatory and libellous, and that the Mail tried to smear Peter McKelvie.

But that is just my analysis. Read the opinion of Dr. Sarah Nelson about Peter McKelvie and his team.

She wrote a book Tackling Child Sexual Abuse : Radical Approaches to Prevention, Protection and Support [23].  Sarah is an expert in this field,  from 2006-11 an advisor to the Scottish  advisor to the Scottish Parliament’s  Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation  in Scotland in 2014.

She states Peter McKelvie’s team convicted about 38 paedophiles, and closed 7 boarding schools as well as unearthed evidence of a ring stretching to the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

She states, amongst many other things that the work of McKelvie’s team was one of the “striking successes in child protection”

HT @ciabaudo

Peter McKelvies integrity is solid.

I believe these cases are also due to Peter McKelvies information.

The Integrity of Stephen Wright, Sam Greenhill and the Daily Mail

All this evidence leaves questions about the Mail article and Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill.

                                                         Stephen Wright lied and no apology

                                                   Sam Greenhill @s_greenhill lied and no apology

  • Why was it written?
  • Did Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill write this or were their names just put on the byline?
  • Was it written under instruction of someone higher up the Mail hierarchy, the owner of the newspaper, or were they told to write it by MI5 and secret services? If so who?
  • Why was it so inaccurate? The research was either abysmal or it was deliberate.
  • Is there any other reason that it was written apart from a hatchet job on Peter McKelvie?
  • Corporate media Mail wrote fake news. What are they trying to hide, and who are they trying to protect?

Then the other day, all the Mail can manage is a snivelling little non apology

peter-mc

It is quite bizarre.

Is this a non-apology apology? They are unlikely to do this through choice. Why should they do this so long after the event?

In an ideal world, the Mail should be made accountable for their sanctions and false statements. That could be said to be in court in public and made to justify their statements.

However we do not live in an ideal world, especially where rich corporations libel normal individuals. The corporations have many tricks to prevent this such as employing expensive lawyers, dragging out litigation, increasing stress on the victim and families, gag clauses to settle, payment into court of large sums  of money to prevent the case reaching court. If it does reach court and the judge awards less money than the money put into court then they have to pay the court costs of the other party, a gamble few will take, as it would drive them into bankruptcy.

No word from Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill. They should hang their heads in shame after writing that libellous drivel and hiding behind the Daily Mail and all the unfair advantages that gives them.

How dare Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill impugn the integrity of Peter McKelvie, who has worked steadfastly for years for the truth, when you accept the Mail’s 20 pieces of silver to wrongly slur this fine man.

Peter McKelvie is a hero.

Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill. Shame on you. You are not fit to wipe Peter’s arse.

COMMANDER CHARLES ARTHUR HOWESON – colleague of Prince Philip and Prince Charles – charged with buggery

COMMANDER CHARLES ARTHUR HOWESON – colleague of Prince Philip and Prince Charles – charged with buggery

 

Mar 3, 2017

Police say the charges are two counts of buggery, one of attempt buggery and 12 counts of indecent assault.

These matters relate to 10 alleged victims, all of whom are male.

At the time of the alleged offences one was aged 14/15, another was aged between 16 to 18 and eight were described as being in their early 20s.

Howeson was raised in Mevagissey in Cornwall, joined the Royal Navy in 1967 before making his fortune as a property developer and launching his long career in the public, private and voluntary sector.

Howeson is vice president for life of the Plymouth Drake Foundation, a charity he founded in 2008 to help communities in the city.

In creating the foundation, from which he stepped down in 2012, Howeson established a so-called “charity of charities” designed to support individuals and groups through grants.

The jewel in the foundation’s crown is a £10 annual trust membership for 10,000 Plymothians.

Dressed in a smart blue suit and accompanied by his wife at Plymouth Magistrates’ Court today, Howeson spoke only to confirm his name and address and said “I understand, thank you” when the charges were read out.

He did not enter a plea and will next appear at crown court on May 15.

In 1972, Cleopatra took part in escort duties during the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh‘s South East Asia tour.

The National Archives records that MOD has on file details of intelligence collection activities by Cleopatra in January–March 1978. The original document is still closed, but the bare fact of the activity itself is available.

Yep, the very same. The most eccentric XO I ever served with :-)
Edited to add, having seen John’s post above it was indeed the Cleopatra not Montrose! I was DWEO from 86 to 88.
He left the RN to try and become an MP but didn’t quite make it. Its one of about 2 reasons the RN are obliged to let you back in again. He would have been huge in the Commons – and kept the bar afloat. :stout:
Cannot argue with that. Would like to have seen a Chief Whip who impose anything on him! He was there (Gib) towards the end of my time and certainly made the social arena and ONH a better place to be. Without ever being near the ship I had heard he was a legend during his time in Cleo.
Cleo was from 84 to 86 so it seems we served together John.

The 67-year-old had been appointed by the Queen as a Royal Navy Honorary Captain

It is believed Mr Howeson, aged 61, is the only figure on the list who was actually a naval officer.

Ultimately it will involve me being an ambassador to the Royal Naval Reserves.

“I plan to conduct regular visits to Royal Naval units and sites in Plymouth as part of my role.

“I will also expect to be given up-to-date briefings on Royal Navy affairs.”

It’s business as usual for Prince Andrew

  • Thursday 10 March 2011

Buckingham Palace today moved to shore up Prince Andrew’s image by announcing a series of engagements with British businesses.

Prince Andrew met the Queen on Tuesday following the controversy over his friendship with convicted child sex offender Jeffery Epstein. The Standard understands she gave her son her “full support”.

Charles Howeson, who will host a lunch for the Duke (Prince Andrew) at the Plymouth Business Area Association, said that he was a major asset to UK firms hoping to trade abroad. Mr Howeson added: “He has been doing this longer than civil servants and probably longer than many company chairmen, and he has built up a network of contacts that is incomparable.”

Rear-Admiral Sir Richard Trowbridge, who died on Sunday aged 83, was the first officer to rise from boy sailor to captain of the Royal Yacht Britannia and the last Briton to serve as Governor of Western Australia.

A personal friend of Prince Philip since they had served in the British Pacific Fleet at the end of the Second World War, he had an unusually long-serving and successful term as Flag Officer Royal Yachts from 1970 to 1975 when Britannia

Trowbridge was commissioned in 1940 and served at sea throughout the Second World War. He was in the destroyer Wakeful after the end of hostilities with Japan when she transported prisoners of war to Sydney; and Lady Mountbatten was in charge of repatriation. Trowbridge was mentioned in dispatches.

This was when he met Prince Philip, who was first lieutenant of another destroyer in the 27th Destroyer Flotilla. Together they were in Tokyo Bay when the Japanese signed their surrender after atomic bombs had been dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Trowbridge was appointed KCVO in 1983.

Father Sam Philpott – Party to celebrate Priest’s MBE

July 31, 2012

Father Sam Philpott was ‘overwhelmed’ that parishioners at St Peters Church in Wyndham Square threw a party for him inviting along many people he had worked with over the years.

Father Philpott has been at the forefront of pioneering projects including the Ship homeless hostel, Plymouth Mediation and The Millfields Economic Development Trust, which he chairs. He also worked with sex offenders to try to get them to face up to their offences and lay down roots so they weren’t constantly travelling round.

He has been involved in schemes including Wheels, which encouraged children to work on car repairs, and Stables, which taught children how to interact more effectively by teaching them activities such as theatre and rock climbing.

He is currently involved in the Widening Horizons project which encourages children’s aspirations.

And he has worked with business leader Charles Howeson on the Drake Foundation which is “raising sums for good things in the city”.

He also sent out a huge thanks to Charles Howeson.

Biology teacher Freedman, 54, took early retirement from the school in 2008, but continued to be employed as a sailing teacher and was involved with the Royal Navy section of the school’s Combined Cadet Force up until his arrest in 2010.

Regarded as a pillar of the community he was honoured with the Queen’s Jubilee Medal in 2000, the Cadet Force Medal in 2002, and a clasp for that medal in 2009.

THERE was a strong Naval element at the annual Lord Lieutenant’s Reserve Forces and Cadets presentations for Merseyside. Not only was RN HQ Merseyside chosen as the venue, but Reserve Forces and Cadets Association Vice Chairman Cdr Cedric Loughran also deputised at the last moment to make the presentations. Three of the main recipients were shining examples of the best of Sea Cadet spirit. As well as teaching biology at the Merchant Taylors’ School in Crosby, Stephen Freedman (48) also dons the dark blue uniform of a lieutenant commander to lead the school’s Combined Cadet Force Naval Section. His citation for a Lord Lieutenant’s Certificate highlighted the fact that Stephen has filled this demanding role with great distinction, and is also second in command of the school’s cadet force. For many years he has run the CCF RN Camp at HMS Bristol at Whale Island, founded the annual Cadet Forces Regatta, staffed a yacht crewed by cadets sailing from Scotland to Norway, and runs the Bridge Trainer for the RN Cadet Camp at Dartmouth each summer.

Mr Freedman, who has been decorated for his naval work in schools, also occasionally took activities at Liverpool College in Mossley Hill.

From 1991 to 2008, he ran the Royal Naval Section of the Combined Cadet Force at Merchant Taylors’.

His expertise includes dinghy and power boat instruction.

And, in 2006, he was awarded the Lord Lieutenant’s Certificate given sparingly for military service beyond the call of duty. At the time, he said: “It has been the most rewarding part of my career and I like to think that my involvement has not only opened up opportunities for our cadets, but for myself as well.”

“Mr Freedman was an able and experienced member of the biology department who retired from teaching in July, 2008.

“The school has no further comment to make at this time, as the investigation is ongoing.”

The criminal investigation comes three months after a jury found 25-year-old Hannah McIntyre not guilty of having sex with a 16-year-old pupil while employed as a classics teacher at the school.

Dating back to 1620, the independent school is consistently among the country’s best performing.

Paul Burrell/Royal Yacht Britannia orgy scandal

In 1981, 11 members of the crew of the Queen’s yacht ‘Britannia’ were charged.


Paul Burrell (pictured fifth from right) was part of a orgy on the Royal Yacht Britannia, his agent claims. None of the people in the above photo of the Britannia are thought to have been involved in the reported orgy

Reports from 1981 show that a trial against naval members were held in secret, which prompted rumours of a cover-up, which officials denied.

The men involved were accused of ‘disgraceful conduct of a cruel, indecent or unnatural kind’, and sailors were arrested after X-rated photos were found during a drugs raid.

The Queen was kept up to date on disciplinary proceedings during the case, and Prince Phillip was shown a special report on the case, the Sun reported.

Buckingham Palace would not comment on claims that the Queen knew Mr Burrell was involved in the orgy.

The Queen reinstated me and said: ‘Paul, I am so glad to have you back. Let’s put this unsavoury business behind us.’

Mr Burrell has never talked about his sexuality even though it was well known within royal circles that he was gay.

In 1983 he wed Maria Cosgrove, a maid to the Duke of Edinburgh

Paul and Maria Burrell met while they were both working at Buckingham Palace, with Maria serving as the Duke of Edinburgh’s maid, and married in 1984.

An established tradition suggested one of them should give up their job with the Royal Family, but the Queen made an exception for them, allowing both to remain in Royal service.

Burrell, who entered Royal Service at age 18, as a Palace footman, became the Queen’s personal footman a year later.
 

Burrell was the only non-family member to be present at Diana’s private burial at the Spencer estate Althorp.

In 1993 she wrote a letter to him that claimed the Prince of Wales was plotting to kill

Is this Burrell? Press & palace spin story that he was sacked?

The commander of the Royal Britannia yacht, Sir Paul Greening, was promoted after the scandal.


The Queen Mother In A Gondola Venice Italy With Her Is Sir Paul Greening

1981 COMMANDER OF THE ROYAL BRITANNIA:

  Rear-Admiral Sir Paul Greening, commanded the Royal Yacht Britannia in her heyday, and afterwards succeeded to the 500-year-old office of Master of the Royal Household. 
He was appointed an Extra Equerry to the Queen in 1983 and Master of the Household of the Sovereign from 1986 to 1992.[1]

As Flag Officer Royal Yachts from February 1981 to August 1985, he was responsible for the vessel’s safety and efficiency, and for hosting receptions on behalf of the Queen at events held on board in support of British industry.

Greening’s first days in Britannia were spoilt by the dismissal (under the then law) of several homosexuals: the tabloid press had a field day, but he showed his imperturbability in dealing with it. A natural courtier, he had a boyish charm; the puckish impression given by his permanently raised eyebrows disguised an understanding of people, a mastery of detail and an absolute loyalty to the Crown.

As Master of the Household from 1986 to 1992 Greening was a successful head of staff of all the Queen’s palaces, responsible for 250 chefs, sommeliers, event planners, craftsmen, pages and footmen, housekeepers and postmen.

He was a Younger Brother of Trinity House.

The ‘gay mafia’ of the royal household

09/11/2002

Paul Burrell

The rumours have been washing through Fleet Street. Queen Elizabeth intervened in Paul Burrell’s trial, they alleged, to avoid his going into the witness box at the Old Bailey and revealing tales of homosexual rape, male orgies and a gay mafia in control of the royal household.

That there is at least some truth in them has only fanned the gossips’ flames. Prince Charles acknowledges running up a legal bill of at least £100,000 (?160,000) on behalf of a trusted member of staff accused of raping another man. The allegation was widely known in the household, as the Spectator magazine, a staunch defender of the monarchy, reported.

1997

Burrell received the Royal Victorian Medal


09/11/2002

Twenty years ago, Buckingham Palace investigated an alleged homosexual orgy on the royal yacht Britannia, when Burrell was a footman. One member of staff was required to resign.

Some whisper that Burrell was implicated in those events; others mention a telephone call to Scotland Yard after Burrell’s arrest. The Australian caller described “alleged aspects of Burrell’s private conduct that might not entirely tally with his public image”, according to the Spectator.

“a suspicion is taking root that the homosexual mafia that infiltrates the court has had a criminal case stopped to protect the prince from sordid revelations concerning one of its own.

Buckingham Palace butler ‘ran paedophile sex ring while working for the Royal Family’

A former Buckingham Palace butler has been unmasked as a sexual predator who  ran a paedophile ring while serving the Royal Family.

Bachelor Paul Kidd, 55, groomed at least one of his teenage victims for sex by taking him for tea with the Queen Mother at Clarence House, it has emerged.

In 1976 he was appointed as butler to the Queen at Buckingham Palace and served there for six years until being transferred to Clarence House where he served the Queen Mother.

During his years in Royal service, he was said to have met and looked after three American Presidents including Jimmy Carter and Ronald Regan plus many other Heads of State from around the world.

He also appeared on stage with Hollywood actor Robin Williams at the Nemacolin Spa & Resort Centre in the USA.

On the last day of his trial the Queen suddenly remembered that Diana did give him some gifts strange that…

Rape tape that set royal alarm bells ringing

As Princess Diana sat by his hospital bedside, the royal manservant had no idea a tape was secretly running inside her handbag.

During their 30-minute conversation, Diana listened sympathetically as he made the astonishing allegation that he had been raped by another male member of the palace staff.

Paul Burrell knew both the ‘victim’ – who is a close friend of the former butler – and the man accused of the violent homosexual assault.

The alleged rapist works closely with Charles.

Last night the Prince was said to be terrified that the man could be identified.

That fear of exposure was increasingly being seen as a possible explanation for the dramatic last-minute royal intervention that led to the collapse of the Old Bailey trial last week.

The Royal Family were terrified that, once Burrell took the witness stand, he would divulge sensational and hugely-damaging secrets – in particular, the existence of the ‘rape-tape’ recording.

It was the explosive tape police were desperately seeking when they raided Burrell’s Cheshire home searching for the so-called ‘Crown Jewels’.

A Scotland Yard inquiry into the alleged rape took place at the same time as the Burrell theft investigation and both were led by the same police officer, Maxine de Brunner.

During the police investigation, former members of the Royal Household were interviewed in intimate detail about the alleged incident and asked ‘prurient questions’ about Charles himself.

The man allegedly assaulted, who has a wife and children from whom he is separated, has since left the royal household with a £50,000 payoff and, as with all palace staff, was required to sign a confidentiality agreement.

At the time several senior royal aides carried out an internal palace inquiry and reported back to Prince Charles and his solicitor Fiona Shackleton.

Charles – said to regard his aide as a ‘loyal and necessary person’ – took the unprecedented step of employing one of the country’s top law firms, Kingsley Napley, to defend him against the rape allegations.

Such was his concern for the servant that Charles is understood to have phoned the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir John Stevens when the inquiry was launched.

Just over two weeks after Jimmy Savile emerged from his heart operation, Princess Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris. He was invited to the funeral service at Westminster Abbey but was too weak to attend.

In our final interview, I asked Savile again about his relationships with the royals. ‘What you’ve got to realise is how many books have been written about them by people who don’t really know them,’ he said. ‘Paul Burrell and people like that.’

I put it to him that having worked as Diana’s butler for ten years, Burrell must have surely known her better than most. ‘Yes, he did,’ said Savile, suddenly changing his tune.

‘I helped him get out of his court case.’

In 2002, Burrell was charged with the theft of items belonging to the Princess of Wales but the trial collapsed when it emerged the Queen had spoken to him and a public interest immunity certificate was presented to the court.

‘That was something else,’ smiled Savile, leaning back in his chair, eyes tightly closed as if mentally picturing the next brick being laid on the wall.

‘Nobody could get him off the hook. The entire world had him on the hook. He fell out with [Diana’s] trustees … Paul was very upset about this and because he was so upset, he was a danger, you see.

So they invented this thing that he’d half-inched some of her gear, which he hadn’t.’

Colin Tucker, steward to Fiona Woolf, Fettesgate and the Scottish ‘Magic Circle’ Affair, and Wider Networks – Part 1

the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (the trial of a former teacher at which will take place in early 2015), and the City of London School for Girls (whose former trumpet teacher Helen Goddard was jailed in 2009 for abusing an underage girl, as detailed within this long post), there was a hitherto little commented-upon passage concerning an employee at Mansion House:

 

I believe it is appropriate to bring to your attention the report of an inquiry conducted in Scotland in 1993 relating to an allegation to pervert the course of justice. A current staff member at Mansion House, an employee of the Corporation, was referred to in that inquiry; the individual concerned was not in the employment of the Corporation during the time period mentioned in the report. Full details of the inquiry and its conclusions (at pages 106-107) are contained in the attached link to the full report (https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/228813/0377.pdf ). I can confirm that I have never discussed this issue with the individual and was unaware of the individual’s prior history until the matter was recently brought to my attention.

The individual in question is Anthony Colin Tucker, a former solicitor who has been steward to the Lord Mayor since the early 1990s. The report in question is W.A. Nimmo Smith QC and J.D. Friel,  In this audio interview, Tucker speaks about his work for the Lord Mayor in what is essentially a butler-like role, suggesting something rather closer than Woolf’s term ‘current staff member at Mansion House’ would imply.

The report refers to the now mostly forgotten almost 25-year old saga involving an alleged ‘Magic Circle’ within the Scottish legal establishment, in which gay judges were alleged to have given more lenient sentences to gay criminals because of fear of blackmail. Tucker’s own trial on charges of embezzlement, for which he was acquitted, was central to this affair; the trial came about after Tucker’s senior partner, Ian Walker, killed himself. One journalist, Graham Grant, Home Affairs Editor for the Scottish Daily Mail, reported on this connection this Saturday (October 25th, 2014), in this article below.

As mentioned by Grant, of central importance is the role of Tucker’s defence counsel, the late Robert Henderson QC. Henderson has been in the news again since his daughter Susie has claimed that she was abused by both him and the late former Scottish Solicitor General Sir Nicholas Fairbairn (Emma Cowing and Graham Grant, ‘I was raped aged 4 by top aide to Thatcher: Woman claims she was abused by senior Conservative MP who visited notorious guest house with paedophile Cyril Smith’, Daily Mail, August 14th, 2014), who has also been alleged to have been a visitor to the notorious Elm Guest House in Barnes, a key location for VIP guests to abuse young boys, said to have been delivered from care homes (‘Sir Nicholas Fairbairn in child abuse scandal link’, The Scotsman, July 13th, 2014). This has led to a renewed interest in the ‘magic circle’ allegations (see for example Jonathan Brocklebank, ‘A magic circle of judges, a sex abuse probe and the sinister truth about the Fettesgate scandal’, Daily Mail, August 14th, 2014), though until Grant no-one had made the connection with someone close to the Lord Mayor of London.

Tucker is also listed as a partner in a company entitled ‘LD Inns’, address 24 Howe Street, Edinburgh EH3 6TG, from March 9th 1988 to July 17th, 1989, together with a Burnett Walker and David Ben Aryeah. It turns out this was the notorious Laughing Duck gay bar (see Rory Knight Bruce, ‘Below the Law: It is a short walk from Edinburgh’s Court of Session to the Laughing Duck’, Spectator, January 27th, 1990), mentioned at various points in the 1993 report, and listed with a three star rating in the 1982 edition of Spartacus International Gay Guide for Gay Men; membership of Spartacus, which was run by Roman Catholic priest John Stamford, who was later convicted of sending pornographic material through the post, also notoriously gave discounts for stays at Elm Guest House, and championed PIE; Stamford also published PAN: A Magazine about Boy-Love

Tucker was also for seven years an elder at St Cuthbert’s, next to Edinburgh Castle (Bruce McKain, ‘Solicitor tells fraud trial his partner had hold over him’, Glasgow Herald, December 16th, 1989). Burnett Walker was also a director of a delicatessen, Victors of Edinburgh; Edinburgh-born David Ben-Aryeah worked for the Israeli military, as a travel agent, and was one of the first journalists to report on the Lockerbie disaster

Amongst other matters, this affair demonstrates the importance that the inquiry incorporates Scotland as well (and Northern Ireland, where the Kincora Boys’ Home scandal is said to have involved intelligence operatives from the mainland). Not only is Fairbairn alleged to have been linked to abusers in both England and Scotland, but also the Paedophile Information Exchange was itself founded in Scotland, in Glasgow in 1974 by Ian Campbell Dunn and Michael Hanson as an outgrowth of the Scottish Minorities Group, of which Fairbairn was himself honorary vice-president in the early 1970s (Guy Adams and Andrew Malone, ‘Revealed: The Full horrifying truth about Sir Nicholas Fairbairn – the other paedophile at Margaret Thatcher’s side’, Daily Mail

 

In the meantime, it is reported today that Fiona Woolf may have to face a second appearance before the Home Affairs Select Committee … it is important that Keith Vaz MP and other members of the committee also question her over this affair and whether it represents a significant conflict of interests.

Below I reproduce a wide range of articles from Tucker’s trial, through the course of the ‘Magic Circle’ and ‘Fettesgate’ affairs, up until the release of the report

Part 2 will include subsequent articles on the affair, the allegations of sexual abuse made in 2000 against Robert Henderson, then some obituaries of Henderson, followed by recent press articles which have revisited these affairs, relating to Henderson and Fairbairn. The Fettesgate affair related to the theft of a report by Detective Inspector Robert Orr on ‘Homosexuality and the Criminal Law’, relating to the possibility of a homosexual network in the legal profession, which can be read here. This is a complex and detailed affair which requires extensive reading.

ORGY on the Royal Yacht Britannia

  • The orgy aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia reportedly took place in 1981
  • The orgy supposedly involved members of the navy, who were later dismissed
  • Mr Burrell wasn’t arrested for the orgy, nor did he face criminal charges because he ‘was the Queen’s right hand man at that point’, Burrell’s agent said

‘Paul was there. But he wasn’t arrested or subjected to any sort of criminal charges because he was the Queen’s right hand man at that point.’

Ah, now I get it: If you’re Queenie’s right-hand man you can get away with blue murder!

Shortly before Charles and Diana married on July 29, 1981, the Queen apparently suspended Burrell from his job as footman after he was implicated in a gay pornography ring on the Royal Yacht Britannia  – and only gave him his job back on the understanding that he would marry his now wife Maria (who worked for the Duke of Edinburgh).

Plymouth ex-detective said Cyril Smith child abuse probe mirrors Goad inquiry

A FORMER Plymouth detective who helped bring paedophile William Goad to justice said she is not surprised Met officers may have been told to halt their inquiry into child abuse by Cyril Smith and other public figures.

Recent news reports claim investigators were ordered to hand over evidence and quit their inquiry into the Liberal MP after his arrest.

Smith was held during a 1980s probe into alleged sex parties with teenage boys in south London, a former Met officer told the BBC’s Newsnight programme.

In 2013, former detective Shirley Thompson told The Herald of her long-standing concerns about the Goad inquiry. Goad was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2004 after he admitted sexually abusing more than a dozen boys.

She noted what she believed was a number of failures by Devon and Cornwall Police, including failing to act on statements by his victims of other paedophiles operating in and around Plymouth.

She said senior officers told her to “put a lid on it” and concentrate her investigation solely into Goad.

She said: “Reading the newspapers today was like a repeat of what I saw with Goad – officers being told to stop investigating, told to ignore evidence, and young men being left to be abused by others. This is what Goad’s victims said for years. It’s what I was told during the inquiry – “put a lid on it and concentrate on Goad”.

“So much of that investigation was not finished. There was an immense possibility and probability there was communication between him and other paedophile offenders in Britain after he fled to Thailand, but no one bothered to look into it.

“There was evidence he snatched boys in other cities and shared his victims with other paedophiles in London and Manchester, but no-one looked into it.”

Shirley said her attempts to get other cases fully investigated in 2004, after Goad was jailed, met with silence. It took another year – and a damning BBC Panorama programme criticising Devon and Cornwall Police – to see an investigation into other men previously mentioned. Even then, only one – Peter Norsworthy – was brought to justice. But by then she said she had been sidelined and left the force soon after suffering breast cancer.

She said: “In relation to the child abuse inquiry in London, I wonder how many whistle blowers have lost their jobs or been ignored and sidelined over the years?

“Now they’re talking about the Met investigating the Met over whether they protected suspected paedophile MPs.

I suppose it could be worse – they could ask Devon and Cornwall Police to do it, or South Yorkshire Police, after the child abuse scandal in Rotherham.

“They need specialist independent investigators, who cannot be influenced or pressured. That way no-one could threaten them with disciplinary action, threaten them with the Official Secrets Act. They would be able to go where the evidence guides them – not senior officers and not politicians.”

Shirley said that despite being told not to go on fishing trips for information, she would often gather damning statements from victims before alerting her superiors.

She said: “We would interview victims who led us to other victims and we’d interview them and so on. After we’d gathered the evidence senior officers would write the action up after the fact, when it should’ve been the other way around. When other suspect names were mentioned we were told ‘don’t go there’.

“Goad would’ve pleaded not guilty if we had stuck to what we were told to do.”

Inside the mind of Plymouth’s most notorious paedophile

April 08, 2017

goadmarket

William Goad was a millionaire whose career began on a market stall

One of Britain’s most prolific paedophiles – Plymouth businessman William Goad – stopped attempting suicide in prison after he believed he would be freed six years into his life sentence.

Goad, of Ford Park Road, was jailed for life at Plymouth Crown Court in October 2004 after he pleaded guilty to sexually abusing young boys.

During his sentencing hearing, prosecutor Martin Meeke QC, told the court: “It is believed there has been no single defendant with more victims than this man.”

Millionaire Goad was branded a ‘voracious, calculating, predatory and violent homosexual paedophile’ who had once boasted of beating his own ‘record’ of abusing 142 boys in a year

In that time he set up and ran the Mount Gould Camping Club, opened the Cornish Market World in St Austell with a business partner, and later opened a children’s play zone Ben’s Playworld in the same area.

The ‘strictly private and confidential’ minutes revealed how a man revealed during counselling how as a child he was abused by a paedophile gang, naming Goad as the ringleader. The psychiatrist revealed to the group the man had gone to police “in the summer of 1994” and listed other children also abused and names of “some of the paedophiles concerned”.

The minutes revealed how Goad’s house was “kitted out like a boys club” and that “in payment of the abuse the children suffered they were all given BMX bikes”

Some of the abused boys’ parents “had debts paid or overlooked and some were taken away for weekends by Bill Goad and associates”.

The minutes noted: “The weekends away were spent in other large cities such as London and Manchester where the boys were shared with other men in these cities.

“The boys were threatened to keep quiet and were paid off.”

Most ominously, the minutes noted: “It appears that some prominent men in society have or did have associations with this ring.”

William Goad (1944 – 20 October 2012) was a British millionaire businessman from Plymouth, Devon who was imprisoned for life for child rape. He was called in various newspapers “Britain’s most prolific paedophile”,[1][2][3] with his assaults causing two of his victims to commit suicide.[2]Goad was sent to prison for life in October 2004.[1] He pleaded guilty to two charges of indecent assault and 14 counts of rape.[a][4]He was described in court as a “voracious, calculating, predatory and violent homosexual paedophile” who sexually abused young boys over a 30-year period.[4]

Goad’s fortune was once estimated to be around £25 million.[6] Goad opened Cornish Market World in 1991, which became at one point Britain’s biggest indoor market with more than 300 stalls.[7]

In the mid-1990s Goad launched Ben’s Playworld, a children’s play zone hosting a range of activities aimed at 2 to 12-year-olds, including mega-slides, giant tubes and a massive ball-pond.[7]

Goad died of natural causes at HMP Isle of Wight, Albany on 20 October 2012.[4][9]

 THE founder of an Andover children’s charity – caged for a string of horrific child sex crimes – has had his sentence slashed by top judges in London.

As previously reported by the Advertiser, Ronald Nicholson Bennett, 73, of Launcelot Close, was jailed for 16 years in October for five crimes against two girls.

The offences took place more than three decades ago and caused “life-changing devastation” to the victims.

But after an appeal on Tuesday, three senior judges in London cut the “excessive ” term to 14 years.

Bennett founded the now-disbanded Brave Hearts children’s charity and had refused to go into the witness box to defend himself during his trial.

In 2007 he was fundraiser of the year at the Pride of Andover awards where he was congratulated by Esther Rantzen.

The idea that we keep the political and judicial systems apart in this country is sound. No one would want a crooked government being able to lean on the courts to make sure decisions always went the “right” way. But when you study this week’s decision to cut 10 years from the sentence handed down to Roy Whiting, the killer of Sarah Payne, you might come round to see the justice in my idea for a radical overhaul of our legal system.

Paedophile Army sergeant who raped a young girl has jail term cut by top judges

February 22, 2017

A paedophile army sergeant who raped one young girl and committed sex attacks on another has had his jail term cut by top judges.

Alan McCurry, 67, who served in the 4th Battalion Mercian Regiment, based in Farnborough, abused the victims during the 1970’s and 1980’s.

McCurry lived in South Cerney, Gloucestershire, after leaving the Mercians in 1982. And he later served as a chef in a Territorial Army division of the Merseyside-based King’s Regiment.

He was arrested after one of the victims plucked up the courage to go to the police in 2010.

The sick ex-soldier was jailed for 15 years in July 2015 at Colchester Military Courts Centre.

He was convicted of two counts of rape, four of indecent assault and one of indecency with a child.

Lord Justice Simon, at London’s Criminal Appeal Court, cut his sentence by a year.

The judge, sitting with Mr Justice Holroyde and Mr Justice Soole, also heard McCurry’s bid to get his convictions overturned.

Lord Justice Simon commented:

“These were very serious offences with a devastating impact on the lives of the victims,” he added.

But aspects of the 15-year sentence were “unlawful” and the overall term had to be cut by a year.

British court refuses to extradite suspected American paedophile

UK judges say Roger Giese, a fugitive from FBI since 2007, can only be sent to US after assurances his human rights will not be breached

The two judges at the high court in London made it clear that if no assurance was given, they would refuse to hand over Roger Giese, 40, to stand trial in California, where he is charged with sexually abusing a boy under the age of 14 from 1998 until 2002.

The former choirmaster has been living in a village in Hampshire under a different name and working for a PR company.

Giese is wanted in Orange County, California, for allegedly committing “lewd acts” with a child. He is alleged to have befriended the boy in 1998, when he was working as a voice coach for the All-American Boys Chorus. He fled the US eight years ago just as he was about to stand trial.

An extradition request from the US was certified by the Home Office in May 2014, and Giese was arrested on 4 June last year. But magistrates court district judge Margot Coleman refused the request last April.

Lord Justice Aikens and Mr Justice Holroyde stated in a joint written judgment that Coleman was right to conclude that extradition would be “inconsistent” with Giese’s ECHR rights. The judges said that if no assurance was given “in due time”, the US government appeal for the right to extradite must be dismissed.

According to a Daily Mirror investigation, Giese set up home with a new partner in the Hampshire countryside. There was no suggestion she knew about his past. Together, the pair built a PR company with clients including the travel firm (Savile-linked)Thomas Cook.

  • Survivors say he was not the only abuser
  • Official report concluded that investigators could have done more
  • Now police launch a fresh search for other paedophiles in the case

William Goad

Police have launched a new investigation into Britain’s worst ever paedophile after an internal report revealed that officers failed to hunt down his sick accomplices.

Goad died last year in prison aged 68, but some of his survivors have long suspected there were others involved in his child abuse ring who escaped the net.

Their claims have now been backed by a police probe which said detectives focused so narrowly on Goad that they sidelined claims he had help.

The report by Devon and Cornwall Police’s Professional Standards Department (PSD) said hundreds of possible new victims have come forward after his conviction but none had even been interviewed properly.

Survivors have always claimed he had links with other paedophiles and sometimes abused boys with them.

A police document from 1996 warned that Goad’s abuse ring contained ‘prominent members of society’ – but none were ever identified.

Devon and Cornwall Police launched their internal probe after a complaint was lodged last November by Paul Wyatt, who was abused by Goad in his teens and has campaigned for years to see the case reopened.

The PSD referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission but insisted the force had correctly followed its policy at the time and did not recommend specific disciplinary action.

However, investigators agreed there was a possibility other survivors ‘might have also been abused by other offenders and thus the lack of any police action has potentially meant these offenders have retained their liberty and continued their offending behaviour’.

Mr Wyatt, who said survivors who came forward were simply given a crime number and referred to support services, welcomed the new inquiry.

He said: ‘Of the 17 witnesses who originally were part of the trial which led to Goad’s eventual conviction, some had named other paedophiles connected to Goad who had also abused them. This information eventually led to the convictions of other paedophiles in the last few years.

‘What if these other hundreds of victims, that came forward but were never allowed to make statements, were abused by others as well?

‘They were just given crime reference numbers and a telephone helpline to ring. It means their offenders have been active in Plymouth for all this time without ever being brought to book.’

Mr Wyatt was backed by former detective constable Shirley Thompson, who helped secure Goad’s life sentence in 2004.

William Alexander Goad – companies
Where are William Goad’s lost millions?
And by the 90s Goad was a rich
man. He was a joint owner of a huge indoor market in Cornwall. The business is worth several million.
He knew his share would be at risk if he was arrested and ordered to compensate his victims. In 1998 he
fled abroad. With a false passport Goad set about hiding not just himself but his assets too. He was now
wanted for questioning.Secret filmingBut when police approached Ken Gorvin, associate and business partner of over 30 years, he couldn’t help.
Did he ever offer you any help to tell you where Mr Goad was?SLEVIN: Certainly no information came to us to indicate where he was.POWYS: So there was no information from Mr Govin that “Yes, I know where he is and this is where he
is”?SLEVIN: No.POWYS: What police didn’t know was that the two men were in contact. In October 1999, while he was
on the run, Goad travelled to Spain to meet Gorvin. There they struck a deal. What exactly they agreed
isn’t known, but what is clear from the company documents is that Bill Goad resigned from the business and
transferred his shares. Ken Gorvin became the sole director of a new company in which he and his family
hold all the shares.
In 2003 Goad ventured back to the UK and stayed at this hotel on the outskirts of
Plymouth, he was caught and arrested on his way back from a meeting with Gorvin and lawyers to discuss
the Cornish market’s trading hours. It was then police found out Goad was booked into the hotel under his
false identity.He was booked in under the alias.SLEVIN: Yes.POWYS: What name was given?SLEVIN: The name of Gorvin was used to confirm the booking.POWYS: So the name of Ken Gorvin was used.SLEVIN: And to confirm the credit card booking, yes.POWYS: Was it paid by credit card, cash? How was it paid for?SLEVIN: It was by credit card in the name of Gorvin.Secret filmingPOWYS: Mr Gorvin declined to answer our questions saying we were acting maliciously. We wanted to
ask if he knew of Goad’s false identity and how the business assets had been dispersed. At Goad’s
sentencing the court heard that his money from the deal must have been secreted or hidden, and that as a
result, there was nothing left to compensate the victims. Most of those victims can’t sue Goad either. The
law says victims of abuse have to sue within six years of turning 18. For Ian Gibbons it’s too late, he’s too
old, and he’s been warned his record may put off the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. They
make awards to victims of violent crime, but not always if they themselves have gone on to offend.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/nol/shared/spl…/crimewave.txt

As I mentioned, Goad was extremely close to Gorvin and they were in partnership in the majority of Goad’s companies. Lots of chopping and changing within the companies, no doubt hiding the assets. One of the companies Cubic Vision was originally called Charlie’s Adventureworld and it is this company that eventually appears to have been sold by the now sole owner Ken Gorvin before he set off for a life in Australia.

http://www.townandcountrymarkets.co….ture-land.html

I believe this to be Gorvin, married Mel Gorvin in 2008 and now living what appears to be a very comfortable life in Perth Australia.

Unfortunately those that were abused appear to have received no financial compensation, as the majority of Goad’s millions simply disappeared.

Edit: Yes that is definitely the Gorvins as Mel Gorvin’s Facebook page has a ‘friend’ in the name of Donna Hood who was the company secretary for almost all William Goad’s companies. Perhaps she knows where the money has gone?

Did corrupt Plymouth policeman tip off Britain’s worst paedophile William Goad?

 February 28, 2014

A “CORRUPT” police detective is feared to have helped derail investigations into one of Britain’s most notorious paedophiles.

William Goad was jailed for life in 2004 after he admitted sexually abusing more than a dozen boys.

However, his survivors have long claimed that Goad appeared to act with impunity for many years.

Goad himself used to boast to his victims that he was untouchable.

Police officers were seen going to Goad’s address while he was under observations by a officers from special “Task Force”.

One officer, who has since died, is repeatedly mentioned in the report and his action have been described as “suspicious” and the decision to have him be part of a later investigation into Goad’s abuse as “concerning”.

The report by PSD notes that in the early 1980s the Task Force conducted observations on Goad’s house “as a result of intelligence received believed to be regarding underage sex at the address”.

One of the two officers who carried out the observations told PSD investigators he recalled how a Detective Constable [Mike} Foulden was seen going to the address.

An Inspector who led the operation, but who has since retired, also confirmed Det Con Foulden’s unexpected presence at Goad’s home.

When police finally raided the property, believing they would find incriminating evidence such as video recordings, they instead found nothing, except “Masonic material”, he report says.

The officer carrying out the observations told PSD investigators that “it appeared that Mr Goad was expecting the police”.

The retired Inspector also told PSD investigators he believed the operation might have been compromised by Det Con Foulden.

The matter was referred upwards to another senior officer.

Another officer – who retired as a distinguished senior officer – was interviewed by PSD investigators and recalled how when they were a constable, they remembered Det Con Foulden coming into the Task Force office and asking questions about the operation.

This incident was also referred to the Task Force supervisors as it was thought “suspicious”.

The PSD report notes that the visit of Det Con Foulden to Goad’s home, together with the suspicion at the time that the observations might have been compromised by him, “does highlight the question of what, if any action, was taken in regards to this.”

Paul has bitterly complained that in 1986, when he was collected for interview by two officers about the abuse he suffered at the hands of Goad.

One of them was Det Con Foulden.

During the trip to the police station, he said the officer said to him: “We’ve heard that Billy Goad popped your cherry”.

As a result of this comment, and others during police interview, Paul felt he could only reveal a small part of the abuse he suffered.

He did not make a fuller statement until 1994, which saw the launch of a new investigation.

This investigation was binned after the Crown Prosecution Service said further charges would be an “abuse of process”.

Two years later more victims came forwards but as police launched another investigation, Goad fled to Thailand until he return in 2003.

At his sentencing the successful Plymouth market trader was described by Judge William Taylor as “a voracious, calculating and predatory paedophile over the past 40 years who has corrupted generations of boys aged between eight and 16”.

The PSD report, which was launched to investigate whether a number of officers were seen going to Goad’s home, has found Paul Wyatt’s complaint cannot be upheld.

However, Paul feels it has uncovered a likely explanation as to why Goad escaped justice for so many years.

Paul told The Herald: “When Foulden said in the police car he’d heard Goad had “popped my cherry” I had not told anyone else at that stage.

“He had come to me because another victim had said I was also victim of Goad’s – but he never said what Goad had done.

“I believe the only way he would’ve known that detail was from Goad himself.

“Because of what he said, and how he behaved during the interview, I never made a full disclosure to him.

“Because of Foulden’s impact on me, Goad was allowed to carry on abusing boys for another 15 years.”

Some quarters have suggested that there could be an innocent explanation, in that Det Con Foulden was a golfer, who played for a police golf team and often encouraged local businesses to sponsor prizes and that his visit to Goad’s address may have been to garner sponsorship.

His arrival at the Task Force office may have been genuine interest in the inquiry and his comments to Mr Wyatt may have come about due to the officers’ “brash, larger than life character”, rather than any dishonesty.

This is dismissed by Paul, who notes that other officers had flagged Det Con Foulden up to senior officers in the early 1980s for his possible links to Goad, yet he was later given a significant role in investigating allegations against the market trader.

He said: “I believe he was aiding and abetting Goad.

“I believe he was feeding Goad statements.

“Just after I made my first statement to police I had the first attempt on my life.

“Other victims of Goad had been sent to get me, one with a big bowie knife.”

He said Det Con Foulden also intimidated him during the 1986 interview, using a specific piece of information which Paul never revealed to police until years later.

He said: “Foulden threatened me with a charge on an incident which involved me and someone else.

“The only way he could’ve found out about it was from direct contact with Eddie Pratt, a man closely linked to Goad, who was later exposed by BBC Panorama as a paedophile.

“I did not reveal this information until I was interviewed in 2005 by Det Con Shirley Thompson.

“There was no way he could’ve know it, unless he was in contact with Eddie Pratt or from Goad himself.

“That information was not in the public domain, or even known to police.

“I think he threatened me in an attempt to keep me quiet regarding Goad.”

Police finally launched Operation Faber into Pratt and others in April 2005.

Eighteen days after Paul gave a video interview, disclosing his abuse at the hands of seven men, including Pratt, Pratt committed suicide by hanging in France.

The operation in the jailing of Peter Norsworthy for 15 years for nine counts of rape.

In 1987 Goad was sentenced to six months, suspended for two years, for the three counts of indecent assaults on Paul.

He was found not guilty on sexual assault charges on six other boys.

Goad died of natural causes in HMP Albany on the Isle of Wight in October 2012.

Paul fears these other boys were also interviewed – and put off giving a fuller account – by Det Con Foulden.

He said: “Foulden interviewed several boys.

“He was one of the main investigators.

“Goad got not guilty’s on all but my charges.”

Paul said the finding by the PSD report, that there was “no case to answer” was “bitter-sweet”.

He said: “It touches on the concept that police knew there was something suspicious about Foulden. A number of officers raised concerns about Foulden at the time, including the observation team and a senior investigating officer. Since then some of Goad’s victims have mentioned Foulden.”

Following a separate complaint by Paul, police last year launched a new investigation made “during and since previous inquiries” into Goad.

Paul said: “It all shows the difference between policing back then and how brilliant it is now.

“Now victims feel safer than ever. They know they will be listened to and it will be properly investigated. That’s what this has always been about for me.”

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police: “The allegations subject of the complaint have been fully investigated by our Professional Standards Department which has involved interviewing both serving and some retired officers.

“However no evidence has been gained to support the allegations and the complaint is not upheld.”

FORMER DETECTIVE: ‘COMPLACENCY, CORRUPTION AND NEGLECT LED TO A DECADE OF FURTHER ABUSE’

THE detective who helped jail Goad said she has long believed there was a “corrupt officer” who “compromised” earlier investigations.

Former Det Con Shirley Thompson said the PSD investigation still leaves questions unanswered.

She said: “I still would like to know the justification for not going to Thailand to seize Goad’s computer after he returned to the UK under a false name.

“It could have given us a lot of information.

“We know he was sending e-mails and had access to a computer, because we had access to information he was sending them to his business partner in England.

“If he was a major drug dealer they would’ve had an officer on the next aeroplane.

“But the rape of young boys? They were not even going to suggest it. It was a case of “put a lid on it” because they were frightened allegations of corruption were going to come out.

“Why was there no investigation of Goad’s Blackpool trip where he procured boys? No investigation into allegations about Goad’s journeys to other cities with kids being kidnapped and abused?

“Why was Goad allowed to live under an pseudonym in Ivybridge before he fled to Thailand?

“If Goad did not know police were after him, why did he use a pseudonym?”

In September last year, The Herald exclusively reported how the former detective had repeatedly urged her bosses in 2004 to go further with the investigation into other alleged abusers linked to Goad, but to no avail.

She said she had first heard Det Con Foulden mentioned in the 1990s in relation to another case.

She said: “I was a probationary officer, dealing with a nuisance phone call case. The woman mentioned a man who was linked to boys’ homes. She said Det Con Foulden would go ‘dining’ with this man on a weekly basis.

“Years later the man committed suicide after a boy made allegations of abuse.

“I heard there had been surveillance years before so I contacted the detective who made the surveillance.

“The detective said I wouldn’t find any of it, saying ‘some people are untouchable’.

“I went to a CID officer asking what should I do with the information I was being given by this woman about this abuser. The detective said leave it with me, but came back later and said if I valued my job, I should burn the lot.”

“I do believe there was a corrupt officer who compromised the initial inquiries.

“There is still so much that needs answering.

“As Paul has said before, there should be a public inquiry.

“I believe that because of complacency, neglect and corruption, it led to a decade more of boys being raped by Goad.”

Well known children’s home in Devon has been temporarily shut down. 

Dame Hannah Rogers children’s home in Ivybridge shut down amid police probe

August 08, 2014

A HOME for children with disabilities has been temporarily closed and alternative living arrangements made pending a police probe.

Details emerged yesterday that children’s residential services at Dame Hannah Rogers Trust children’s unit in Ivybridge have been suspended until at least mid September.

Devon County Council had to plan alternative care arrangements after the action was taken on Tuesday night.

It is understood that the suspension came after the Trust referred itself to the authorities over safeguarding issues.

One of the UK’s oldest charities, Hannahs has sites in Ivybridge and Seale-Hayne, Newton Abbot. It provides learning, care and support to children and adults with a range of disabilities.

A Devon County Council spokesman said: “Due to on-going safeguarding concerns and police investigation the regulatory body Ofsted have made the decision to serve notice of temporary suspension on the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust home in Ivybridge.”All the social care and health authorities who fund placements at the home have been informed and are working together to plan alternative care arrangements.”Councillor James McInnes, Devon County Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for children, schools and skills, said: “We are very concerned about the difficulties this disruption in service places on children with very high needs and their families. We are working with regulators and all other authorities to find solutions to this situation as quickly as possible. We want to ensure the highest quality care for our most vulnerable children and adults and we place their safety at the upmost importance.”

A SCOUT group travelled in style to London to collect their environmental awards.

Members of the 47th Plymouth (Langley) Scout Group won a special Green Apple award for their work in supporting villagers in Nepal.

The Scouts were given three first class rail tickets by First Great Western chairman Charles Howeson for their trip to the House of Commons this week.

The Scouts have been involved in fundraising for the charity Clinic Nepal, which was set up to provide a health clinic for the 20,000-strong community of Meghauli, which is 20 miles from the nearest hospital.

In October last year the Plymouth group, along with Scouts from Bristol, held a ‘Jungle Jamboree’ with local Scouts in Nepal.

Fran Cramoysan, whose son Jez went to London this week, said they had laid the foundation stone for the new Scout hut last October, and hoped to have an opening ceremony when they take another group to Nepal in October 2009.

Mr Howeson said: “First Great Western is proud to be able to support Langley Scout Group.

“The work they have undertaken in Nepal is an example to us all. I also wish them good luck in representing their country in the European Awards for the Environment.

Derek Laud was an ex-Monday Club activist and protégé of Hamilton’s friend Michael Brown, who offered Hamilton a fee of £8,000 per year. Hamilton failed to register the paid-for consultancy. Hamilton took free trips to South Africa in the company of Brown.[19][20]

The trip was organised and funded by Strategy Network International (SNI), created in 1985 specifically to lobby against the imposition of sanctions on South Africa.

Yet when asked by the authors if Mr Cameron wrote a memo or had to report back to the office about his trip, Alistair Cooke – in 1989 his boss at Central Office – said it was “simply a jolly”, adding: “It was all terribly relaxed, just a little treat, a perk of the job.

Clients

Until the 20th century Coutts was a clearing bank to the nobility and landed gentry, but today it is a wealth manager to a wider range of clients, including entrepreneurs, entertainers, sportsmen, professionals and executives. The British Royal Family is a noted client.[8][9] There are however stringent requirements to being accepted as a client, not just based on average and total financial assets. Prospective clients need at least £1,000,000 in investable assets, not including real estate.[10]

Coutts is seen as a bank for the rich and famous of British society. Like all banks, it is secretive about its client list. The bank has a regular presence at the annual Cannes Film Festival.[11]

Design

Coutts often collaborates with British fashion designers, including previous designs for its distinctive credit and debit cards. In 2004, British fashion designer and Savile Row tailor Ozwald Boateng designed the super-premium Coutts World Charge Card[12] whilst in 2006 Stella McCartney was commissioned to design the Coutts Visa debit card.[13

Constable Simon Bailey – wants a reduction in penalties for child abuse offenders / Simon Bailey’s Background

Simon Bailey, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for child protection

A leading child protection officer has suggested paedophiles who view indecent images should not be given criminal sanctions unless they pose a physical threat to children, according to The Times.

Lower level offenders should be given counselling and rehabilitation and police should focus on the most dangerous paedophiles with access to children and those looking at the most serious images, Simon Bailey, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for child protection, is reported to have said.

…alternatives needed to be looked at as increasing reports of sexual abuse have pushed the situation to “saturation point”.

The Times quoted Mr Bailey as acknowledging many people may be horrified at the stance…

 

MPs call for ‘immediate reassurance’ over child abuse image cases

07 Mar 2017

A group of influential MPs is “very alarmed” that Britain’s most senior child protection police officer should want to keep low-level offenders viewing abuse images out of the courts.

Home Affairs Select Committee (HASC) chair Yvette Cooper is calling for “immediate reassurance” after the National Police Chiefs’ Council child protection lead suggested only paedophiles who pose a “really significant” physical risk to children should face a criminal sentence.

While thousands of suspects are being arrested every year in conjunction with the National Crime Agency (NCA), Chief Constable Simon Bailey said alternatives needed to be looked at as increasing reports of sexual abuse have pushed the situation to “saturation point”.

Worried by the “changes in approach” if implemented straight away, Ms Cooper said comments that forces cannot cope with the “huge proportions” of child sex abuse offences – up 80 per cent in three years – are “clearly of great concern to us”.

She wrote to Mr Bailey: “As you will know, for many decades institutions have put children at risk because it was seen as too difficult, not a priority or resources were insufficient to keep them safe.

“I would not want to see the same happen over online child abuse.”

The children’s charity  National Association for People Abused in Childhood’s chief executive officer, Gabrielle Shaw,  expressed concerns that Mr Bailey’s views could mean that “paedophiles who want to view indecent images of children now have the green light to do so?”.

Ms Shaw added:” If they think they won’t be thrown in jail, what’s to stop them from searching out these images to satisfy their sick appetites?”

Arguing there is no-such thing as a “low-risk paedophile”, she went on: “I don’t want anyone to think for a second that looking at an indecent image of a child is a victimless crime.

“Just because someone downloaded it, maybe paid for it, they might think it’s OK as they didn’t go and hurt a child physically? Except they have.

“They have fed the demand for these images, which means more children will be robbed of their innocence in the worst way possible.

“Those children have to grow up knowing these images will circulate for years – every time someone new views them they are being abused all over again. It never stops.”

“Police priorities reflect society’s priorities. And if you want child protection to be a priority, then let’s all say so.”

Every paedophile needs to face full force of the law

THE suggestion from leading police officer Simon Bailey that paedophiles who look at indecent images online should not be charged with criminal offences unless they pose a direct threat to children is appalling.

 

 His implication is that looking at “low-level images” is not a serious offence. This is completely wrong.

The paedophiles who view these images online may not have physically abused a child themselves but they are funding those who produce such content. They must bear at least some of the responsibility for the suffering of the children featured.

Moreover in some cases viewing images online is just the start. Often it is a precursor to paedophiles committing far worse crimes.

Treating the viewing of images as a minor crime does not provide a sufficient deterrent to further activity and fails to address their behaviour early enough.

Paedophilia is one of the very worst crimes that can be committed. It is shocking that anybody – let alone a senior police officer – could advocate relaxing the laws surrounding it.

April Jones’s mother hits out at senior police officer’s paedophile comments

March 1 2017

The mother of murdered April Jones has warned “anything can trigger” dangerous sexual predators amid suggestions viewing child abuse images should not always lead to prosecution.

A senior police officer provoked a storm of criticism this week by claiming lower-level offenders should instead be given counselling and rehabilitation for looking at child pornography.

Coral Jones, whose five-year-old daughter April was abducted and murdered by paedophile Mark Bridger in 2012, recalled how the killer had viewed grotesque pictures before his crime.

The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) also suggested the comments by the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for child protection, Simon Bailey, amounted to telling offenders: “This is a great day to be a paedophile.”

In comments released by the IWF, Mrs Jones hit back at the claim abuse images could be “low-level”, saying: “You don’t know what pictures Bridger was looking at before attacking my daughter.

“He was looking at images hours before he went after April. It doesn’t matter what images paedophiles look at. Anything can trigger them off.

“A child could have a photo taken of their abuse and they will have to live with that for the rest of their life. People can be cruel.”

Chief executive Susie Hargreaves told the Press Association: “I think absolutely we need to make sure we don’t give out the wrong message, we don’t want to be saying ‘this is a great day to be a paedophile because when you look at the images there might not be the ramifications you expected a week ago’.

“What we have to say is we have a zero-tolerance approach to anybody looking at child sexual abuse – it is wrong.

“These are children, these are real children who are abused and whether it’s a category C or a category A that is a real child suffering that abuse.”

“Resources is not a reason to let people get away with child sexual abuse.”

No doubt child porn producers work in organized networks; surely GCHQ can target?

Any progress on P.I.E. Keith Harding’s role in GCHQ Masonic Lodge?

Bit odd story didn’t get more coverage:


gchq-mason-lodge


What is worrying, is that he is the same man who coordinates Operation Hydrant.

World gone mad. You couldn’t make it up.

Totally agree with increasing penalties for drivers using mobiles but why not for child abuse offenders?

agree re phones child abuse raises questions re who is actually bring protected children or well connected

Why suggestions that viewing images might be decriminalised are misguided and need rejecting

 “Viewing indecent images of children is a criminal offence & must be dealt with by police as such”

 Seems plenty of room in jail for beggars & ppl not paying TV licence ppl with drug & mental health issues

It seems Simon Bailey is only parroting what pie-monger Harriet the Harwoman (NCCL Harriet Harman) said many moons ago:

I see it as condoning the people who make the stuff in the first place!

Simon Bailey Honours

13 June 2014

Mr Bailey started his policing career as a PC in King’s Lynn in 1986 and rose through the ranks to deputy chief constable in 2010.

He said: “I’m continuing to see reductions in what we would call traditional crime types whereas I’m seeing significant growth is emerging in the vulnerability case areas.

“We’re seeing increases of reporting of abuse, child and adult abuse, rape and serious sexual offences.

“I don’t believe, and have nothing that would indicate, there are more offences taking place but there’s been the Savile effect which has raised levels of awareness.

“There’s an increased confidence that their story will be believed and increased confidence on my organisation’s ability to respond to that and deal with it.”

He added: “The face of crime is changing and we’ve got to rebalance resources in the organisation.”

Norfolk Constabulary

15 March 1999: Human rights lawyer Rosemary Nelson is assassinated by the British state in collusion with a loyalist death squad.

 

Charges of collusion in the murder of Rosemary Nelson have led the Royal Ulster Constabulary to hand over the investigation to the British police, and to also request the help of the FBI.

https://web.archive.org/web/20080110071620/http://i2.democracynow.org/1999/3/18/who_killed_rosemary_nelson

She was murdered a week before the publication of a report into allegations that police officers had told her clients she’d soon be dead.

What no one had known, however, was that while the RUC itself was under scrutiny, special branch, MI5 and the security service had been spying on her. Between 1994-1998 security reports on Nelson’s private and public life accelerated until, in the summer of 1998, an application for a warrant to put a bugging device in her property went to Mo Mowlam, then Northern Ireland secretary. It troubled Mowlam, but she sanctioned it.

The evidence has stunned the three previous inquiries – costing millions of pounds – into alleged collusion in Nelson’s killing. They had all been told lies, that no intelligence file or files exist on Nelson.

“That was an untruth,” says a furious officer close to the murder investigation headed by Colin Port, now chief constable of Avon and Somerset police.

There has always been an eerie code of silence about Nelson’s death. Despite Port’s “outstanding” stings, said Phillips, the suspects had not spoken. But they had consistently uttered one mantra: “It was the government that did it.”

https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2009/jul/04/rosemary-nelson-murder-public-inquiry

Rosemary Nelson (née Magee; 4 September 1958 – 15 March 1999) was a prominent Irish human rights solicitor who was assassinated by an Ulster loyalist paramilitary group in 1999. A bomb exploded under her car at her home in Lurgan, Northern Ireland; the Red Hand Defenders claimed responsibility. Allegations that the British state security forces were involved in her killing led to a public inquiry. It found no evidence that state forces directly facilitated her murder, but could not exclude the possibility that individual members had helped the perpetrators. It said that the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) failed to protect her and that she had been publicly threatened and assaulted by officers, which helped legitimize her as a target.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12]

In September 2006 the British Security Service MI5 announced it would be represented at the inquiry. This move provoked criticism from Nelson’s family, who reportedly expressed concerns that MI5 would remove sensitive or classified information.[17]

Loyalist McKeown: Police asked me to shoot Rosemary Nelson dead

Loyalist lifer Trevor McKeown could be called to the public inquiry into the murder of Catholic lawyer Rosemary Nelson.

 Four years ago he claimed rogue RUC officers directed him to the spot where Rosemary Nelson parked her car and urged him to shoot her there — less than two years before she was eventually killed by a loyalist car bomb.

McKeown says two officers asked him to kill the human rights lawyer while he was being quizzed over the murder of 18-year-old Bernadette Martin — an allegation they strenusously denied.

Since her death there have been persistent allegations of security force collusion in the murder, which is now the subject of an inquiry headed by retired judge Sir Michael Morland.
Ironically, McKeown’s trial for murdering Bernadette Martin started the day mother-of-three Mrs Nelson was murdered on March 15, 1999.

Man arrested on Teesside over historic abuse claims linked to football

Cleveland Police reveal details of man arrested over claims of ‘non-recent sexual offences against children’

1 MAR 2017

Police have made the first arrest on Teesside in the ongoing probe into historic child abuse in football.

Cleveland Police confirmed a man in his 40s was arrested for “non-recent sexual offences against children”.

In total, eight people have made abuse allegations to the force at “all levels” of the game.

No further details of the suspect or the allegations, such as what club they may centre around, have been disclosed.

But a force spokesperson said: “Cleveland Police has received allegations from eight people of non-recent abuse associated with football at all levels and these allegations are being investigated.

“One man in his 40s was arrested at the end of January in connection with an allegation and he has been bailed pending further inquiries.

All information relating to non-recent child sexual abuse allegations received by Cleveland Police is being forwarded to Operation Hydrant for the purpose of national operational coordination.

“This involves collating and cross referencing all information received to avoid duplication, and ensure efficient and effective sharing of information.”

Abuse survivor quits Vatican’s child protection panel

Mar 1 2017

Irish abuse victim Marie Collins has quit the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors

A survivor of clerical sex abuse has resigned from a panel established by Pope Francis to address the issue, saying Vatican officials mounted “shameful” resistance to its work.

Marie Collins was the only remaining panel member abused by a cleric.

She said the commission had suffered constant setbacks, “despite the Holy Father approving all its recommendations”.

Pope Francis set up the panel in March 2014.

It was seen as an attempt to address the bitter and long-standing scourge of child abuse which has dogged the Catholic Church.

In her resignation letter, Ms Collins said she believed the pontiff had acted sincerely when he appointed the commission to advise on keeping children safe.

However, she condemned the lack of co-operation by those dealing with cases of abuse.

The Pope himself has been criticised for reducing the punishments given to priests guilty of child abuse.

Briton Peter Saunders departed in 2016 after quarrelling with other members about how to handle serial abuse allegations against an Italian priest.

Mr Saunders said he felt betrayed by the Pope and felt he had been tricked into backing up a “smoke and mirrors” exercise.

Row as Police Scotland blocks release of chief constable Phil Gormley‘s financial interests

6 Aug 2016

Police Scotland Chief Constable Phil Gormley

POLICE Scotland is embroiled in a secrecy row after it blacked out the details of the chief constable’s financial interests.

The force’s decision means it is impossible to know if Phil Gormley has any business ties outside of policing.

John Finnie, a Scottish Greens MSP and a former policeman, called on the decision to be reconsidered.

Submitting a register of interests that is available for inspection is a basic element of public sector transparency.

MSPs, MPs, MEPs and councillors are required to produce a detailed list, as are board members of quangos and public agencies.

A key part of this ethics check is financial openness, such as declaring directorships and shareholdings.

The Police Scotland Executive – whose members include police chiefs – also have to submit an internal declaration on public appointments, political activity, gifts and hospitality and potential conflicts of interest.

However, although the force has released a copy of Gormley’s register, the “financial” section has been redacted.

“The public have a right to know of any potential conflicts of interests that senior public figures or elected politicians may have and it is for that reasons we all complete a register of interests.

Myles Bradbury: CEOP ‘failed to alert abuse doctor to police’

Phil Gormley involved in this case.

CEOP received information from Toronto Police, via Interpol, of up to 2,345 UK individuals, including Bradbury, in July 2012.

This was part of the Canadian force’s Project Spade investigating child pornography across the world.

The NCA said the material provided to CEOP included “details” of online purchasers of potentially harmful DVDs and videos.

In November 2013, a few weeks after the agency took over CEOP, the NCA said its deputy director general Phil Gormley became aware the material had not been disseminated to UK police forces and did then share it…

the data on Myles Bradbury was shared with Suffolk Police a few days later on 27 November, which, by coincidence, was the same day a grandparent of a victim at the hospital made a complaint about the doctor.

Queen Elizabeth and Phil Gormley – sharing a special handshake


Norfolk chief constable – on meeting the Queen – hobnobbing with royalty.

11 July 2011

He was once the real Morse, and meets the royals as part of his job, but the Chief Constable of Norfolk was surprised to find himself something of a local celebrity too.

Phil Gormley has been in the job for just over a year, but is still getting used to invitations as diverse as church with the Queen, cricket with a general, or late night knock on his front door to ask him to look into rumours of a village crime.

“The post of the chief constable is one that has a much higher profile in Norfolk than it has in other places I have worked,” he said.

A life-long football fan, he has attended several Norwich City matches since moving to the county – and not all of them as a spectator.

“I’ve been out and policed a couple of matches, and I go out on patrol…”

Gormley has been married twice and has one daughter.[50][10] His second wife, who he married in 1998, is Claire Louise Stevens, a police officer with Thames Valley Police where she rose to rank of Det. Superintendent in 2009; since 2011 she has been Det. Superintendent with HM Inspectorate of Constabulary.[1][51].

Of note is that the Deputy Chief Constable of Norfolk was Ian Learmonth, who was one of the senior police officers responsible for policing around the 2005 G8 Summit, then Assistant Chief Constable for Operations at Strathclyde Police.[12]

As with the SDS under his heading of Special Branch, Gormley’s time here is at a crucial period in the history of the spycop unit National Public Order Intelligence Unit, as will be detailed below. While Gormley was overseeing it, this Unit ran notorious undercovers such as Mark Kennedy, Lynn Watson and Marco Jacobs at this time. All three were in attendance in the counter-mobilisation and protests against the 2005 G8 Summit in Scotland. The G8 is a significant period as it was one of great activity by NPOIU, and Mark Kennedy claimed that he’d been told his reports were going direct to the desk of Prime Minister Tony Blair

New chief constable Phil Gormley linked to Met undercover police ‘sex spy’ unit

 

POLICE Scotland’s new chief constable led the Metropolitan police branch that controlled a notorious undercover unit whose officers had sex with their female targets.

Phil Gormley was in charge of the Met’s Special Branch, which had responsibility for the disgraced Special Demonstration Squad (SDS).

The SDS’s activities are now central to a judge-led inquiry into undercover policing in England and Wales.

MSP Graeme Pearson, former Director General of the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency, called on the police chief to provide answers on any links he had to the SDS.

Gormley, the former deputy director of the National Crime Agency, came out of retirement to secure the top job in Scottish policing and starts this week.

He succeeds Sir Stephen House, whose term was marked by controversies on stop and search, armed policing, call-handling and unlawful spying.

However, as Gormley prepares to take over, the spotlight is on his career at the Met, where he was a commander for four years from 2003.

The SDS was formed in 1968 – as the Special Operations Squad – in response to mass protests against the Vietnam War.

Over the next 40 years, SDS officers would be embedded undercover into protest and environmental groups with a view to keeping tabs on their activities.

The Unit was based inside the Met’s Special Branch – which focuses on national security.

However, the SDS has become discredited over the tactics used by its undercover officers over the decades.

A number of the plants formed sexual relationships with female activists and one ex-officer, Bob Lambert, even fathered a child with a protestor in the 1980s.

In November, it was announced that seven woman received compensation for what the Met described as “totally unacceptable” behaviour of some of its officers.

The compensation was linked to behaviour by former officers for the SDS and the separate National Public Order Intelligence Unit.

Officers also assumed fake identities by taking the names of dead babies and gave evidence in court using the false names.

The SDS also stands accused of spying in the 1990s on the family of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence – an allegation that led to Home Secretary Theresa May to announce the Pitchford Inquiry. The SDS was eventually wound up in 2008.

According to his online Police Scotland biography, Gormley became a Met commander in 2003: “Initially responsible for firearms and aviation security, then for special branch and counter terrorism.”

His NCA biography provides more details of this stint: “From 2005 Phil led the modernisation of Specialist Operations and took command of MPS Special Branch, driving forward the merger of Special Branch and the Anti Terrorist Branch to form the new Counter Terrorism Command.”

In 2005, when Gormley took command of Special Branch, the SDS – now called the Special Duties Squad – was still in existence.

In an official inquiry into SDS, carried out by Derbyshire chief constable Mick Creedon, the two most senior officers in the SDS pecking order were “Commander Special Branch” and a Detective Chief Superintendent.

MSP John Finnie, a former police officer, said: “I would be keen to understand what the Scottish Police Authority (SPA) knew about Mr Gormley’s policing background and what enquiries, if any, they made about his role with Special Branch and the SDS.

“If the SPA were unaware of this hugely significant matter, then, once again, it would bring into question their competence.

“The public will rightly question how someone who was in charge of Special Branch, which controlled the notorious SDS, is now our chief constable.”

Phil Gormley was speaking at a Westminster home affairs committee

Police Scotland’s overseas training work is ‘hypocrisy’

25 May 2016

A Labour MP has strongly criticised Scotland’s chief constable for letting his force train officers in countries with “appalling” human rights records.

Labour’s David Winnick told Phil Gormley that Police Scotland’s work in places like Sri Lanka was “hypocrisy”.

But Mr Gormley said the force was under “significant budgetary pressure” and needed to seek additional income.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Scottish government had “full knowledge” of the contracts, he added.

Mr Gormley was speaking at a Westminster home affairs committee on Tuesday.

He confirmed Police Scotland’s international development unit provided training in Sri Lanka, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and South Sudan, among others.

Deaths in custody

The force has been training officers in Sri Lanka for several years, despite concerns being raised by Amnesty International about the country’s record on torture, arbitrary arrests and deaths in custody.

Mr Winnick asked him: “Sudan has a notorious record of outright brutality… Isn’t there a contradiction of this country [the UK] upholding certain principles, human rights and the rest and an organisation like yours having contracts with governments that are totally in the opposite direction?”

Police Scotland has provided training on child protection and crash investigation to officers in the UAE’s police force.

Phil Gormley – Common Purpose? John Walker made this Freedom of Information request to West Midlands Police

Dear West Midlands Police,

Has the former deputy chief constable of West Midlands Police, Phil Gormley, ever attended a Common Purpose training course?

If so please list the courses he has attended, their dates, their cost and details of who paid for them.

By Common Purpose, I mean the training organisation of that name: http://www.commonpurpose.org/home.aspx

Yours faithfully,

John Walker

West Midlands Police did not have the information requested.

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/phil_gormley_common_purpose_2#comment-17406

There are widespread concerns the NCA is being run more like a Whitehall department than a law enforcement agency, with too many managers making it difficult for swift action to be taken. Its annual report, published last week, reveals huge turnover in its 17-strong management board. Director-general Mr Bristow is leaving before his contract ends in late 2016, although the Home Office claimed this did not mean he was leaving early.

Deputy director-general Phil Gormley announced in March that he would retire in the coming year.

He became deputy director general of the National Crime Agency in 2013.

NCA… had suddenly been given a lead role in tackling child abuse.

The Home Secretary said last night: ‘Keith Bristow has been an inspirational first director-general.

‘Under his leadership, and alongside Phil Gormley and Trevor Pearce, the NCA re-shaped the UK’s response to serious and organised crime and is a highly effective organisation.’

Further Inquiries into Abuse by British Barrister, John Smyth QC

United Kingdom April 13 2017

Further questions are being asked in relation to an alleged cover up of child abuse which was endured by teenage public school boys at the hands of a British barrister, John Smyth QC, in the 1970s and the 1980s.

On behalf of the Iwerne Trust, John Smyth ran religious summer camps in the 1970s and early 1980s, which were attended by boys from elite public schools. It is alleged that Smyth subjected the school boys to horrific beatings in order to purge them of their “sins”.

Allegations of abuse emerged back in 1982 after one of Smyth’s alleged victims attempted to commit suicide. In response, the Iwerne Trust commissioned an internal inquiry into the abuse which was conducted by Mark Ruston, a Church of England vicar. The report detailed the prescribed punishments for “sins” such as masturbation and pride, 100 and 400 strokes respectively. It was reported that over a three year period, eight boys had received 14,000 lashes between them, with two of the boys being whipped 4,000 times each. The report also stated that these beatings were carried out while the boys were either naked or semi-naked in order to “increase humility”.

Pupils of Winchester College were among the alleged victims and the allegations of abuse were disclosed by the Iwerne Trust to the college in 1982. In response, the headmaster of Winchester College at the time met with Smyth and made him undertake that he would never again enter the college or contact its pupils.

Like the Iwerne Trust, Winchester College failed to disclose the abuse to the police.

 

The survivor of abuse whose suicide attempt had prompted the inquiry fairly acknowledged that “everything could have been stopped” if the police had been informed.

The failure to report and prosecute John Smyth in the UK allowed him the opportunity of a fresh start when he moved to Zimbabwe in 1984. In Zimbabwe, Smyth founded the Zambesi Ministry, a series of Christian summer camps for boys from top public schools. It is alleged that at these summer camps, Symth abused teenagers in a similarly brutal way as he had done in the UK.

In 1997, Smyth was arrested and charged with killing a 16 year old boy named Guide Nyachuru, who was found dead in a swimming pool at one of the summer camps in 1992. It was also alleged by five other boys that Smyth had subjected them to abuse, including savage beatings. In 1998, the case of culpable homicide was dismissed against Smyth after it was claimed that prosecutors had overstated the claims and failed to follow procedures.

In 2002, Smyth moved from Zimbabwe to South Africa where he became a campaigner against gay rights.

The Church of England claims that it reported the abuse to the Cambridgeshire police in 2013, and again in February 2014, after an alleged victim came forward. However, because the allegations were non recent and there were difficulties with respect to the extradition of John Smyth from South Africa, no investigation was launched. In 2014, the allegations were separately reported to Hampshire police. However, the fact that the reporting party would not provide details of other victims or further information again prevented the police from opening an inquiry.

Last month Hampshire police initiated a formal investigation into the non recent allegations of sadistic abuse by John Smyth. They are appealing for anyone with any information about the events detailed above to get in contact with their investigation team, quoting Operation Cubic.

The leading QC John Smyth is accused of having brainwashed 22 young men Britain’s oldest public school, Winchester College in what victims now describe as a “cult”, persuading his victims the beatings could purge them of their sins.

Among them was Andy Moorse, who was 14-year-old pupil at Winchester College in 1975 when he was groomed. In less than two years, Moorse was accepting regular and violent beatings in  Smyth’s garden shed, he told the BBC.

Both brothers have remained close to their mother.  Charles Napier was living with their mother when he was arrested.

http://www.gazette-news.co.uk/news/4682762.display/#

Mr Whittingdale is perfectly positioned to talk about the measures he and his family took to alert the relevant authorities whenever Napier took up a new post with access to children.

Mr Whittingdale will have the crucial insight into the family or environmental background that creates such a monster.

When letters arrived from Sweden, Cairo and Turkey to family members during a period when Napier was banned from teaching and Mr Whittingdale was firmly embedded in Non 10, what dilemmas did the family face, how did they deal with family loyalty as opposed to public duty expected of a powerful public figure.

In his diaries, Righton scored children according to how far the abuse went. This practice was revealed to Parliament by Tom Watson MP, whom Mr Briggs consulted after reading about Righton in a newspaper article.

It was following discussions with Tom Watson that Mr Briggs gave a statement to the police, as part of their Operation Fairbank into a high level paedophile conspiracy operating from Westminster.

Mr Briggs also approached specialist child abuse lawyer Tracey Emmott of Bedford-based Emmott Snell.

But Righton claimed Brittan could influence judicial procedures in his favour should Mr Briggs ever find himself in trouble.

The only son of John Whittingdale FRCS[4] and Margaret née Napier,[5] via his mother Whittingdale is in distant remainder to the lordship of Napier.[6]

At the time of his paedophile offences one of Napier’s distant cousins was married to Sir Peter Hayman, a senior MI6 officer who was later himself exposed as a paedophile though never prosecuted.

How did  Charles Napier manage to continue teaching even after his first conviction for indecent assault in 1972?

In 1981 – on National Institute for Social Work headed paper – Righton wrote a letter to DoE:

In my view, Mr Napier is a gifted teacher of both adults and children.  I believe that, during the years since his conviction, he has acquired a knowledge and disciplined mastery of himself which would justify the conclusion that he no longer constitutes a sexual risk to children in his charge.  It would give me great pleasure – and cause me no anxiety – to hear that the Secretary of State had reviewed his decision of 24 November 1972, in Mr Napier’s favour.

John Smyth beat me first, appallingly, with his usual force. Then Simon Doggart took over while John watched”, said one victim who wished to be anonymous.

I recall immediately the absolute brutality of his beating – far, far worse than Smyth. There was no discussion, no emotion that I recall, just a fit sports man using all his force.

“Then it was over, this was going to be the new regime,” he told the BBC.

The leading QC is accused of having brainwashed 22 young men Britain’s oldest public school, Winchester College in what victims now describe as a “cult”, persuading his victims the beatings could purge them of their sins.

Among them was Andy Moorse, who was 14-year-old pupil at Winchester College in 1975 when he was groomed. In less than two years, Moorse was accepting regular and violent beatings in  Smyth’s garden shed, he told the BBC.

He revealed the boys would “bleed everywhere” from the beatings and when the beatings became too physical for Smyth to carry out alone, he claimed recruited Doggart to his cause.

The BBC said it had spoken to Doggart’s victims and had been handed nine hours of recording left unheard for years which reveal the full extent of the abuse. On one occasion, a victim was beaten for 12 hours.

The Apostles came to public attention again following the exposure of the Cambridge spy ring in 1951. Three Cambridge graduates with access to the top levels of government in Britain, one of them a former Apostle, were eventually found to have passed information to the KGB. The three known agents were Apostle Guy Burgess, an MI6 officer and secretary to the deputy foreign minister; Donald MacLean, foreign office secretary; and Kim Philby, MI6 officer and journalist.

Writers have accused several other Apostles of being witting Soviet agents. Roland Perry in his book, The Fifth Man (London: Pan Books, 1994) makes a circumstantial case against Victor Rothschild, 3rd Baron Rothschild, who was a friend to both Burgess and Blunt.

Jimmy’s work required him to spend weekdays in London where he spent many evenings with friends at the Garrick Club.

Dr. James Hamilton Doggart (22 January 1900 – 15 October 1989) was a leading ophthalmologist, [1] lecturer, writer, cricketer,[2] and a member of the Cambridge Apostles [3] and the Bloomsbury Group.
It was in Keynes’ rooms at King’s where friend and writer Peter Lucas introduced Jimmy to a secret society known as the Apostles. [9] Founded in 1829, this elite group of intellectual Jedis boasted Alfred Tennyson and Rupert Brooke amongst its past members.
During Jimmy’s association, fellow Apostles included philosophers Bertrand Russell and Ludwig Wittgenstein, writer Lytton Strachey, Soviet spies Anthony Blunt and Guy Burgess, novelist E.M. Forster and future Provosts of King’s Jack Sheppard and Noel Annan. Members took it in turns to read a paper on a philosophical or academic issue, which became the basis for lively debates. Jimmy forged some of his closest friendships among the Apostles, who brought him into contact with leading lights of the Bloomsbury group, such as Virginia Woolf, Duncan Grant and Dora Carrington

Denied The Chance To Love: Examples Of Abuse In British Boarding Schools

By Benjamin Fry

2014

Ho

There has been a huge response in the press to the journalist Alex Renton’s courageous article about examples of abuse in british boarding schools, which you can read here: Abuse in British boarding schools – why I had to confront my demons

He was writing about his experiences at Ashdown Prep School and the appalling abuse that the children suffered there.

As he says at the end of the article:-

“I thought of those others .. who wanted to speak up. I thought of the children in council care homes, in borstals and mental institutions, who over the years were left in thrall to adults without protection. I thought of .. the great swathe of collateral damage that psychological trauma leaves. I thought of all the kids taken from their homes too early and thus denied, as the writer David Thomas once put it, the chance to love”.

I think Alex Renton’s article is timely as, despite some increasing openness, people in positions of power undoubtedly still feel they can get away with abuse, and proper deterrents are not in place. It is important that there is a strong message in our society that causing sexual harm to children will not go unpunished.

To give you a case in point, a teacher whom I knew at prep school, up to the age of 12, was prosecuted in 2001 following complaints against him by six former pupils. He was acquitted, which shocked me. You can see why in the extract below from my 2004 book, ‘What’s Wrong With You’.

You will see that I am fairly certain that there has been miscarriage of justice. I hope that Alex’s brave article will go some way to helping to correct the culture which has facilitated that.

Case Study: Hot Rod

It turned out that there were four pedophiles teaching at my prep school. That’s quiet a lot among the staff for only one hundred and fifty boys.

Update:

More claims emerge of alleged abuse at Christian camp

Tue 11 Apr 2017

It has been claimed a man at the heart of a child abuse scandal in the Church of England recruited one of his victims to help him carry out beatings.

Simon Doggart

Alleged victim Andy Moorse told the BBC that barrister John Smyth QC convinced Simon Doggart to join in committing the sadomasochistic abuse at Winchester College in Hampshire during the mid-1970s.

He alleged that the boys would “bleed everywhere” from the attacks.

Mr Doggart, who has been the headteacher of Caldicott preparatory school in Buckinghamshire for the last two decades, is said to be critically ill and unable to respond to the allegations, the broadcaster said.

There is no suggestion that any pupil at Caldicott Preparatory has ever suffered harm at the hands of Mr Doggart.

Hampshire Police says it is investigating.

Survivors said abuse undertaken at Christian camps run at Winchester College – the oldest public school in the country – amounted to a cult, with victims being told the violence would purge them of their sins.

Two years after assault allegations first emerged in 1982, John Smyth – a leading barrister – moved to Zimbabwe where he founded several Christian camps at which it is claimed he abused youngsters.

The Bishop of Guildford Rt Rev Andrew Watson came forward in February 2017 to claim he survived one occasion of abuse at the hands of John Smyth.

John Smyth is still living as a free man in South Africa.

Caldicott School: Child Sexual Abusers and Timeline

Pupils at Caldicott School, Farnham Royal, Buckinghamshire suffered child sexual abuse over a number of years and a number of abusers. It is now a charity [4], as are many “public” schools.  It is not known what the status of the school was when child sexual abuse offences were being committed by its teachers and covered up by the school.

Known abusers so far were

  • Peter Roland Wright, former Caldicott pupil [23], was finally charged and convicted in 2014. Previous attempts to indict him failed in 2003 due a Judge deciding it was too great a the length of time since offences and the defendants health. A stay on that indictment meant he only faced charges from new victims who came forward. He was sentenced to 8 years. He was tried with offences from 1964-1970 [3]. Victims were mainly 11-13 years old [3]. He was at the school from 1952 -1993, the last 25 years as Headmaster. Wright, and when Headmaster covered up Marton Carsons abuse [1] See also Court Appeal Roland Peter Wright 5 August 2014 Court of Appeal[3] Peter Wright still lived at a cottage overlooking the school after he retired, before his recent vacation in prison.

  • Hugh Edward Henry admitted 13 counts [3] including two counts of incitement to gross indecency and eleven counts of indecent assault [9][12]. He is thought to have been at Caldicott between 1958-1963  and offences on one boy were from 1962-63 [12]. He committed some of his offences at his bedsit and on a school skiing trip with Peter Wright. He was also charged with offences at Gayhurst School, Gerrards Cross. Little else is known of his offending, where else he worked and any other possible offences. He killed himself by walking in front of a train before sentencing. [12]

 

  • John Addrison, another former Caldicott pupil [34], was charged in 2012 with offences at Caldicott between Jan and July 1978 and at Moor Park School, Ludlow between 1985 and 1988 and sentenced to roughly 5 years.  It is also not clear what he did straight after leaving Caldicott; when he started at Moor Park school or what he did after being dismissed from Moor Park School in 1988, although he was teaching in 2010 [2]. It is not known if he committed further offences after 1988. Also see Government UK National College for Teaching and Leadership  Mr John Addrison: Professional Conduct Panel outcome Panel decision and reasons on behalf of the Secretary of State for Education [2] pdf download, and reproduced in Appendix 1 below

 

  • Martin Carson, a science teacher, was found to be committing child sexual abuse offences at Caldicot in 1973, but it was covered up by the school and he received just a 5 year ban from teaching [6]. Carson was charged with two charges of buggery, eight charges of indecent assault and one count of possessing indecent photographs. He pleaded guilty in 2003 and was sentenced to just 2 years in prison. Details are lacking of offences, when employed at Caldicott. Carson resumed his career in 1980 at prep school in Eastbourne where he was appointed Head of Pastoral care [38] and he taught at Harrodian School, Bath, at the time of the video Chosen in 2008. It is not known if the committed further offences at these school or elsewhere [6]

 

  • David Keith Geddes, another teacher, was acquitted of offences between 1975-77 after a retrial [14][28]

 

  • George Hill Peter Wrights deputy in the 1970s killed himself which probably saved him from facing charges [33]

There is a good summary of legal outcomes on the Mandate Now website [28]The Caldicott Trials and Outcomes [28] where there is also a video interview of Tom Perry with Jon Snow.

Quote:
Caldicott Preparatory School became a charitable trust in 1968 under the Headmaster at the time Peter Wright.

Today there are around 250 boys. The present headmaster, Simon Doggart, was appointed in 1998; he came from Eton College where he taught history and was master-in-charge of cricket. He is a member of IAPS and the school’s governors include past parents, old boys and headmasters of public schools.
According to the school’s website, many pupils at Caldicott subsequently “win” places at major independent schools, such as Eton College, Harrow School, Winchester College, Marlborough College, Wellington College, Haileybury College and Radley College.

On 30 September 2008 the school was the subject of a feature documentary, Chosen, transmitted on More4 as part of the “True Stories” strand, about the sexual abuse that went on at the school during the late 1960s and early 1970s.[2] The headmaster Peter Wright was active in this, as well as a number of other teachers, targeting boys good at sports and, to a lesser extent, in the choir. In The Guardian published on the same day, a former parent alleged that Lord Justice Scott Baker former Chairman of the Board of Governors, and Simon Doggart the current headmaster, mishandled a case of alleged sexual abuse of their son by a teacher in the early 2000s.[3]
Martin Carson was dismissed for sexual abuse of a pupil in 1972, and went on to teach at the Harrodian School. He was subsequently prosecuted and found guilty of indecent assault and possessing indecent images of children in 2003.[4]link

“allegations against Bishop Bell by the Church”

Hubert Doggart pursued the issue: Chichester’s Dean & Chapter failed to use the word “alleged” when making pronouncements on Bishop Bell’s guilt. Could we not insist on their retracting from this stance?

Peter H replied the word “alleged” was used in the Diocesan statement of October 26 2015.

Mr Doggart doggardly pressed on : Could we not isolate our Dean and Chapter from the Diocese?

Peter H replied that the Diocesan lawyers appeared to him out of their depth, especially unable to respond adequately to the legal minds of the George Bell Group. However, he did not think it appropriate or feasible to attack the Dean and Chapter at this point – reiterating the need to concentrate on Bell’s reputation – and its restoration. That is what he is fighting for.

Caldicott…under the current headmaster Simon Doggart, another incident of alleged child sexual abuse was reported in the late 2000s. The headmaster and the chairman of the board of governors, Lord Justice Scott Baker, suspended the teacher (who did not return) but failed to report the incident to the police or social services, contrary to the school’s written policy on this matter.

Justice Scott Baker

When Lord Justice Scott Baker walked into the Paris Ritz hotel this week, with the jurors from the Diana, Princess of Wales, inquest, he would have experienced a sharp sense of deja vu.

It was two years after the death of the princess that Mohamed Fayed’s hotel dominated the other famous court case that Scott Baker has presided over.

The Appeal Court judge, hand-picked to finally bring the curtain down on the death of the princess, jailed Jonathan Aitken, the former Tory Cabinet minister, for 18 months for perjury. Aitken had lied on oath about who paid for his suite in the hotel on the Place Vendome.

Baker quickly adapted to his first role as a coroner which enabled him to give an opinionated summing up at the start.

In his opening remarks, which ran to 138 pages and lasted almost two days, he dedicated himself to a methodical and meticulous debunking of the conspiracy theories which have grown up around the car crash in the Alma underpass.

He is the fourth to take up the coroner’s baton in an inquest that has become mired in endless delay and remains at the centre of deep seated suspicions of an Establishment cover-up that the jury’s verdict is unlikely to change.

The Oxford-educated judge, who has more than 40 years experience, comes from a distinguished legal family. His father was a High Court judge and his brother, Michael Findlay Baker, QC, is a circuit judge.

He was called to the Bar in 1961, became a Recorder in 1976, a High Court Judge in the Family Division in 1988 when he was knighted. He transferred to the Queen’s Bench Division in 1992. In 2002, he was made a Lord Justice of Appeal.

Scotty Baker, as he is known to his contemporaries, was chosen for his latest role by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, after discussions with colleagues including the Master of the Rolls, Sir Anthony Clarke.

A keen cricketer, he served on the Cricket Council’s appeals committee for two years and he has a home adjoining a golf course in Scotland. At weekends he is often to be found relaxing with friends at Denham Golf Club, Bucks.

In the 1980s he served on the ground-breaking Warnock committee on the ethics of embryo science and, in 1997, the year that he jailed Aitken, he dismissed charges of corporate manslaughter against Great Western Trains after the Southall train crash which claimed seven lives.

In 1988, he ruled that a woman mental patient with the mind of a child could be sterilised without her consent.

In March, he struck a blow against the insidious rise of the compensation culture when he rejected a claim by a woman who broke her leg in a hole left by a maypole on a village green. ”

 Archbishop’s QC friend ‘allowed to commit abuse after evangelicals failed to report him’

It has now emerged that a number of senior figures at high-profile evangelical organisations were told of the claims but did not alert the authorities.

A barrister at the centre of a child abuse scandal committed a series of sickening assaults against young men after leading evangelical groups failed to report him to the police, it is claimed.

John Smyth QC, a friend of the Archbishop of Canterbury, is accused of carrying out sadomasochistic attacks on boys he met at Christian camps in Britain and Zimbabwe.

The assaults first came to light in 1982, when a victim attempted suicide after being summoned to a beating in the shed of Mr Smyth’s Winchester home.

But both the Iwerne Trust, the Christian group that Mr Smyth chaired, and Winchester College, the school attended by some of his alleged victims, did not report the claims to police.

The part-time judge then moved to Zimbabwe, where he founded a series of summer camps at which it is alleged he again abused young men.

In 1997 he was charged with culpable homicide after a boy was found naked in the swimming pool of one of his camps.

It has now emerged that a number of senior figures at high-profile evangelical organisations were told of the claims but did not alert the authorities.

David Fletcher, a Iwerne trustee who oversaw an investigation into the alleged assaults, said he told the Church Society, a powerful voice on the evangelical wing of the Church of England, about the claims in 1982.

Jamie Colman and his wife Sue, a vicar at the church that oversees the Alpha Course, are under investigation for using their personal charity to fund John Smyth QC

David Jackman, then a senior minister at a leading evangelical church also admitted he was told about the allegations at the same time. Mr Jackman went on to become head of the Proclamation Trust, which helps train evangelical preachers,

The Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship, the legal charity of which Mr Smyth was a member, is also named in Iwerne documents as having been informed.

Separately, the Charity Commission has announced that it has launched an investigation into  a charity established by Reverend Sue Colman, a trustee of the Holy Trinity Brompton, which oversees the Alpha Course, the evangelical movement backed by celebrities such as Bear Grylls, after she admitted sending thousands of pounds to Mr Smyth via her personal charity.

Mrs Colman’s husband Jamie, the heir to the Colman’s Mustard dynasty, is already under investigation  by the Charity Commission  after funneling hundreds of thousands of pounds to Mr Smyth over a thirty-year period, despite knowing about the abuse claims in Britain and Zimbabwe.

Mrs Colman apologised for the donations but said her husband had not told her about the claims  against Mr Smyth.

Dr Lee Gatiss, the director of the Church Society, said the group had examined its records but had “no reason to believe that Church Society was aware of any abuse allegations of the kind referred to, or indeed that Mr Smyth had any involvement with Church Society”.

Mr Jackman, who is a director of Keep Marriage Special, a group launched by the Church Society that claimed that letting same sex couples marry would lead to the legalisation of incest, said he believed he had acted correctly in not notifying police.

He said: “I assumed that the matter was being dealt with by the authorities concerned.”

Mark Barrell, executive director of the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship, said the group’s records suggested that, contrary to the Iwerne Trust documents, it had not been notified of the allegations involving Mr Smyth until 2003.

A spokesman for the Charity Commission said that as a matter of best practice the group should have made an incident report to the regulator once it was informed, but Mr Barrell refused to reveal whether the organisation had notified authorities.

He said: “His membership was terminated that year and he had no further involvement with the LCF.”

Winchester College said that following an inquiry conducted in 1982 into allegations of abuse, the then headmaster told Smyth never to enter school premises or contact pupils again. However, police were not informed.

Royal Sun Alliance, child abuse victims and the legal decision that shames Britain

The insurance company Royal and Sun Alliance Insurance Group spent £750,000 pounds  in legal fees to prevent paying out £200,000  to the victims of the abuse despite knowing that the claims were true:

The State placed the children in Bryn Alyn Community childrens homes  and paid for the children to be abused by Allen and Staff and VIP paedophiles.

Since then the State, the Courts and all the  people involved have made the children suffer further abuse and relive their  childhood abuse over and over again whilst giving them nothing but grief in return.

Jamie Colman, who will become a baronet upon the death of his father, Sir Michael Colman, used a charitable trust to send donations of up to £12,000 a year to John Smyth QC, who is accused of abusing teenagers in Britain and Zimbabwe.

The Charity Commission yesterday launched a probe into the Zambesi Trust, which Mr Colman began chairing in 1989, after he admitted it funded Mr Smyth for nearly thirty years, despite Mr Colman knowing that the barrister had admitted beating boys and showering naked with them.

Colman, a partner at Plexus, a London law firm, is also being investigated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, over claims that he failed to act with integrity and undermined public trust in the legal profession.

Mr Smyth, who ran holiday camps attended by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the late Seventies, is being investigated by Hampshire Police over claims that he beat 22 teenagers he met at the gatherings.

He moved to Zimbabwe in 1984 after victims reported the assault claims to Church leaders, and founded Zambesi Ministries, which ran Christian camps that are also the subject of abuse allegations.

Mr Colman admitted that he had been told about the British claims in the late Eighties, and said he was informed in the early Nineties that Mr Smyth was “using corporal punishment and engaging in nudity with teenagers” at the Zimbabwe camps.

The Telegraph has seen documents showing that Mr Colman flew to Zimbabwe to meet the parents of alleged victims, in July 1993.

Minutes of the meeting show that he accepted that Mr Smyth had beaten boys with a wooden bat, showered with them, and encouraged them to swim naked.

The documents, now disputed by Mr Colman, record him saying that “the beatings and nudity were justified in the context of a weak church; Zambesi Ministries was aimed at portraying Christianity as a rugged, manly religion”.

He also told the parents that Zimbabwean authorities had “a different attitude towards beatings” to British police, and tried to persuade them not to involve lawyers, citing passages from the Bible indicating that “complaints against a Christian should be addressed within the Church”.

Mr Smyth was charged with culpable homicide in 1997 after a 16-year-old boy was found at the bottom of a swimming pool. Several boys then came forward to make abuse claims, although both cases against him collapsed.

Mr Colman admitted that when Mr Smyth cut his ties with the ministry, after leaving Zimbabwe in 2001, the charity “continued to make small grants to him and his wife Anne for their personal expenses”.

The most recent trust accounts appear to show direct funding of around £12,000 per annum from the Zambesi Trust to John Smyth, until 2001. Thereafter around £6,000 per annum up until as recently as February 5, 2017.

Mr Colman said the trustees only decided to stop funding Mr Smyth on February 5, after the allegations against him were finally made public by Channel 4 News.

He said: “It goes without saying, I hope, that I would fully cooperate with any authorities who thought I had information that would assist them in their enquiries.”

First Church Estates Commissioner

Jamie Colman’s father, Sir Michael, oversaw the Church’s investment portfolio between 1993 and 1999, holding the post of First Church Estates Commissioner.

He was subsequently awarded the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Cross of St Augustine.

A Charity Commission spokesman said: “We have opened a case into the Zambesi Trust, to determine how the charity applied its funds in the past, and to determine what safeguarding procedures the charity has in place to protect any vulnerable beneficiaries.”

A spokesman for the Solicitors Regulation Authority said: “We are aware and are investigating these allegations.”

On Friday night, Mr Colman told the Telegraph: “I consider I have met my obligations and duty of care both as a solicitor and as a trustee.”

The leaked email shows how Yentob, currently the BBC’s £330,000-a-year creative director, mounted a concerted operation to lobby the Labour Government to cancel the bill. The bill was waived the following year. The message, sent using a BBC email address to nine Kids Company colleagues – including Ms Batmanghelidjh – revealed he had contacted Dawn Primarolo, then the Paymaster General in the Treasury, and Paul Boateng, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, about the tax bill.

Mr Yentob said he had been advised by Ms Primarolo’s aides to put the charity’s case to her in a letter, so she could refer the matter to the Inland Revenue – which Mr Yentob said he would be doing ‘with a little bit of help from my friends’.
Both Ms Primarolo and Mr Boateng worked at the time for the then-Chancellor Gordon Brown.
Mr Yentob also says in the message: ‘Paul Boateng and I have managed to miss each other on the telephone but his office has been extremely co-operative and concerned and a phone call is being set up for tomorrow morning.’

A few months later, £589,957 was written off using taxpayers’ money, with an additional £100,000 debt met by an unidentified donor.

The charity’s unpaid bill was first revealed by The Mail on Sunday last week, which led to this newspaper obtaining the Yentob email.

The charity has received about £4 million from the Government every year for the last decade.

Ms Batmanghelidjh claims the Government has targeted her because she has a list of Establishment figures allegedly involved in historical child sex abuse.

Mr Boateng said last night: ‘I do not recall the details. I would not be prepared to comment without consulting Treasury papers. I was responsible for spending, not tax.’

 What an utterly warped train of thought!

 You’ve been sitting on that information for years!


8 February 2017
“These camps and [Smyth’s] activities had extraordinary influence among senior evangelicals in the Church of England of my generation,” Bishop Wilson told Channel 4 News. “Pretty much everybody who was anybody in the leadership of public school Anglican evangelicalism had something to do with John Smyth’s operation. And I think that raises all sorts of disturbing questions.”
Joseph Diwakar, a researcher in church history at Oxford university, said the legacy of “Bash camps” – Christian camps named after the nickname of their founder, EJH Nash – “is the narrow cohort of men at the top of the conservative evangelical Church… This narrow and intimate group of alumni [of Christian camps], and their highly-conservative theology, provide context to the silence over Smyth’s crimes.”
An organisation and its network of elites, long influential in the Church, has been shown capable of facilitating and concealing the worst types of abuse.”
Update Feb 8 2017

John Smyth faces fresh allegations of abuse in following ongoing Channel 4 News investigation

Feb 7

Tonight: Channel 4 News obtains new documents revealing disturbing evidence about the scale of John Smyth’s alleged abuse in .

Man says he was ‘ordered to self-harm’ as a teenager by British QC by John Smyth, QC at centre of claims of abuse in 1970s

8 February 2017

Now in his 50s, David (not his real name) encountered Smyth when he was a pupil at Winchester College and a contemporary of Andrew Watson, the bishop of Guildford, who this week disclosed he had been subjected to violent beatings by Smyth.

David said he was drawn into Smyth’s circle after meeting him through Winchester College’s Christian Forum. He also attended Christian holiday camps in Dorset and became a “regular visitor to [Smyth’s] house, where he offered me ‘spiritual guidance’.”
Winchester College said that following an inquiry conducted in 1982 into allegations of abuse, the then headmaster told Smyth never to enter school premises or contact pupils again. However, police were not informed.
Update: 6 Feb 2017

Lawyer accused of subjecting boys to sadomasochistic beatings at Christian summer camps in 1982 ‘was still counselling teens up until allegations re-emerged last week’

  • Justin Welby apologised on behalf of Church of England over the camp beatings 
  • John Smyth, head of Iwerne Trust, allegedly subjected boys to ‘sadomasochism’
  • Boys from some of Britain’s top public schools were left with life-long scars 
  • Neither the church or Winchester College, where some boys went, told police

The part-time judge, whose style of leadership has been likened to a ‘cult leader’ moved to Zimbabwe in 1984 after British assault allegations emerged in 1982, and founded a series of Christian camps at which alleged victims claim he again abused teenagers – at one camp a 16 year old boy drowned during a nighttime ‘skinny dip’ ordered by him.

Mr Smyth was charged with culpable homicide in 1997 in the wake of the death and several other boys came forward to claim he had beaten them and forced them to swim naked while he watched, although both cases against him collapsed.

Today a letter emerged, signed by the barrister and printed on the letterhead of his Zambesi Holidays firm, that was sent to parents of boys booked to attend a camp at the Ruzawi School, an elite boarding school in the north-east of Zimbabwe.

In it, Mr Smyth said that he wanted to create a ‘relaxed family atmosphere’ but admitted the likelihood that he would beat the boys and take showers with them.

He wrote in the note, published in today’s Telegraph: ‘I am determined that we should avoid a school atmosphere as far as possible. I am not a schoolmaster; I try instead to be something of a father figure to the camp, encouraging the younger leaders to care for their campers in the way the best of big brothers should.

‘To this end we use Christian names all round, the younger leaders sleep in the dormitories with their campers, and we all (including myself from time to time) have our showers with the boys.’

The barrister, who was described by the Archbishop of Canterbury as a ‘delightful’ man, also explained that he intended to impose a regime of corporal punishment.

He told parents: ‘We must, however, have good discipline and experience has shown that with so many high-spirited boys we need some form of sanction. I never cane the boys, but I do whack them with a table tennis bat when necessary.

‘Such are the opportunities for pranks that I sometimes have to use this fairly liberally to deter high-spirited naughtiness and to ensure obedience and reasonable standards of tidiness.

At his evangelical church in Cape Town, the couple’s priest confirmed he had been in touch with the Smyths and instructed them to stay away from its services and meetings until the allegations of ‘terrible misconduct’ against the former part-time judge are resolved.

The couple left their home last Friday as allegations of Mr Smyth’s fondness for excessive corporal punishment and penchant for naked boys emerged in interviews with his victims, who spoke to Channel 4 News.

Mr Thompson, told the hushed, packed Church-on-Main congregation in Wynberg, that help would be offered to those who had confided in Mr Smyth.

A fair number of people… have had moments of counselling and group discipleship with John,’ Mr Thompson said.

Elders were available ‘should anyone feel the need to discuss the nature of’ or content of’ their experience,’ he added.
