Colman’s Mustard heir, Jamie Colman, admits charity funded ‘child abuse’ barrister for nearly thirty years

And his wife Rev Sue Colman was an independent adoption and fostering panel member for her local authority and worked for the scandal-ridden Kids Company

Jamie Colman

Rev Sue Colman – has safeguarding role

The heir to the Colman’s Mustard dynasty has admitted funnelling hundreds of thousands of pounds to a barrister at the centre of a child abuse scandal, despite knowing he had brutally beaten teenage boys.

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.

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.
 photo boat and kid co_zpsvkjejth8.jpg
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.

He added: ‘If our having had John as a leader of a discipleship group or his role in any form of ministry has led to hurt or risk to anyone’ or to bringing the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ into disrepute in any way’ for this we apologise’.

Last week, one of the Smyths daughters, who did not wish to be identified, called on her father to come forward and confront allegations against him. Yesterday, her brother PJ joined the chorus for their father to present himself.

During his time at Winchester College in the late Seventies and Eighties, Mr Smyth met many teenagers, and is said to have invited those he favoured to his home for Sunday lunch

In a letter to the congregation of Covenant Life Church in Maryland’ PJ Smyth said his father ‘disciplined me in a manner consistent with the laws and cultural trends of the UK at the time’ not in a manner alleged in the recent reports’.

‘We moved to Zimbabwe when I was 13. My father told me that he felt called out of the legal profession into full-time Christian work. I attended a number of Zambesi Holidays camps and I was never aware of any abuse.

‘During the early 1990s’ when I was studying in South Africa’ I was aware that a delegation of pastors and parents insisted that my father and the board of Zambesi Holidays make adjustments to camp life’ which they did. I do clearly remember the tragic drowning of a fellow camper one year. It was devastating to his family and to all of us who knew him.

‘In my twenties’ I gradually became aware that there had been issues surrounding my father’s ministry in the UK. Nothing specific’ but I remember hearing some of my parents’ friends say things like’ ‘… of course those were difficult years for your dad’. However’ I assumed that it was something relatively minor and it never occurred to me to press my father for detail.

‘I believe that the civil authorities are given by God to help protect against wrong-doing. I am firmly committed to reporting any form of child abuse to the authorities.’


Archbishop of Canterbury’s QC friend blamed his beating of boys at a British summer camp on sleeping pill addiction 

A part-time judge and friend of the Archbishop of Canterbury said he was addicted to sleeping pills at the time he was accused of subjecting boys to savage sado-masochistic beatings.

John Smyth QC, who ran Christian holiday camps attended by the Rev Justin Welby in the late Seventies, told church leaders his “extraordinary aberration of judgment” was linked to his addiction to prescription medication. Hampshire Police this week launched an investigation into Mr Smyth, who left Britain when the beating allegations came to light in the early Eighties, moving to Zimbabwe, where he also faces abuse claims.

Mr Smyth issued a written statement to church leaders in which he accepted that beating British teenagers had been “entirely wrong” and blamed it on the pressures of work and an addiction to sedatives.

The barrister made the admission in 1989, a month after the former headmaster of Winchester, John Thorn, published a book in which he referred to the beating claims.

Mr Thorn wrote in The Road to Winchester, published in February 1989: “I was told the extraordinary news that the neighbouring barrister had gained such personal control over a few of the senior boys in the group, and had kept it after they left the school, that he was claiming to direct their burgeoning relationship with girls and was, with their consent, punishing them physically when they confessed to him they had sinned. 

“The World of Conservative Evangelism was reft in twain. Absurd and baseless rumours were circulated that he was an unhinged tyrant, the embodiment of Satan. He must be banished. And – quietly but efficiently – he was.

“He left the Winchester district and then the United Kingdom. He departed for Africa with his family and, by me, has not been heard of since.”

The fact that the allegations had surfaced publicly for the first time prompted Mr Smyth to issue a written statement, via his Zambezi Ministry, in March 1989.

The release, circulated to church leaders in Zimbabwe, states: “Within a few days of the matter first coming to the attention of older Christians in February 1982, John accepted that what he had been doing was entirely wrong and he has never sought to justify it since.

 In a bid to stop his admission circulating more widely, he added: “Please regard this as a confidential document, NOT for general circulation. It is intended only for the eyes of those who raise queries about the matter in the book.”

Archbishop admits Church ‘failed terribly’ over abuse revelations

The Church of England has tonight apologised unreservedly after a Channel 4 News investigation revealed that a prominent Anglican evangelical and former colleague of the Archbishop of Canterbury is alleged to have severely assaulted boys and young men for decades.

Mr. John Smyth, QC, MA, LLB Trinity Hall and Cambridge.

The alleged abuse was carried out by prominent QC and part time judge called John Smyth, who was chairman of the Iwerne Trust, a charity closely linked to the church which ran Christian holiday camps for public school students.

The Church admitted that it had “failed terribly”, after this programme learned that the Trust had discovered the alleged abuse in 1982, but failed to report it to the police.

Winchester College, where some of the young men met Smyth, was made aware of the alleged abuse, but also failed to report it to the police at the time. There is no suggestion that any abuse took place at the College or with the knowledge of its staff.

The Archbishop was a colleague of Smyth’s at the Iwerne Trust.

Smyth was never reported to cops.

He was instead allowed to move to South Africa after agreeing never to work with children again.

Neither the church or top Winchester College, were some boys went, told police 

The Archbishop and Smyth, who continued to ‘exchange cards’ even after he moved abroad.

Lambeth Palace said: ‘The Archbishop of Canterbury was a dormitory officer at Iwerne holiday camp in the late 1970s, where boys from public schools learnt to develop life as Christians. The role was to be a mentor to the boys, as was that of his now wife at a similar camp for girls.

Two friends of the Archbishop have known of the abuse claims since they first came to light, although a spokesman said neither informed Welby of the allegations.

One, the Reverend David Fletcher, was the trustee of the Iwerne Trust who led the investigation into the incidents. Fletcher opted not to pass the claims to police.

Son of lawyer in ‘spanking’ documentary heads US ‘megachurch’ embroiled in sex scandal

The son of John Smyth — the Cape Town lawyer accused of abusing boys at Christian holiday camps for decades — has just moved from South Africa to head a US “megachurch” emerging from a child sex abuse scandal.

PJ Smyth is the new lead pastor at Covenant Life Church‚ in Gaithersburg‚ Maryland. He moved there in December after being at the helm of Johannesburg’s GodFirst church‚ which has congregations in Douglasdale‚ Parkhurst‚ Paulshoff‚ Benoni and Tembisa.

The website of Covenant Life — which has 19 pastors and around 2‚000 members — says: “We convey our warmest thanks to the people of GodFirst Church in Johannesburg‚ where PJ has served for the last 10 years‚ for their faith and generosity in sending PJ and family stateside for a new assignment.”

In December 2012‚ according to Wikipedia‚ Covenant Life withdrew from the Sovereign Grace Ministries network after former congregants — including some from Covenant Life — filed a lawsuit alleging the ministry’s leaders conspired to conceal the sexual abuse of children.

Six months later‚ Smyth’s predecessor as lead pastor‚ Joshua Harris‚ disclosed that he had been a victim of sex abuse and encouraged victims to go to the police after a Maryland judge dismissed the lawsuit due to the statute of limitations.

Harris stepped down from The Gospel Coalition council in 2014 after former Covenant Life youth group leader Nathaniel Morales was convicted on five counts of sexual abuse against three boys between 1983 and 1991.

During the trial‚ former Covenant Life pastor Grant Layman admitted under oath that he had not reported sex abuse allegations.

PJ moved to Zimbabwe from the UK in 1984‚ when he was 13. He studied at the University of Cape Town‚ and Covenant Life’s website says: “In 1997‚ (PJ and his wife Ashleigh) started River of Life Church in Harare with a few friends.

“Over a seven-year period‚ River of Life had become a family of five churches‚ and PJ and Ashleigh felt God calling them to … plant another reproducing base church‚ this time in Johannesburg‚ South Africa. They started GodFirst Church … in 2005.

“In 2014‚ PJ handed over the leadership of GodFirst Church to devote himself full time to establishing Advance‚ a family of churches committed to planting and strengthening churches‚ currently working on five continents.”

 Tremendous Teens by John Smyth

Pastor Andrew Ellis and Pastor Nigel Desmond praising John Smyth

Christian crusader in teen abuse scandal

A British lawyer who has been working for the inclusion of Christian values into South Africa’s constitutional jurisprudence has been accused of the “horrific” and “masochistic” beating of teenage boys in his care.

Currently based in Cape Town, John Smyth, a Queen’s Counsel and former acting judge in England, is alleged to have left a decades-long trail of bloodied bodies and broken spirits both in the United Kingdom and in Zimbabwe.

While in Zimbabwe Smyth ran a Christian mission, Zambesi Ministries, for 17 years. He was charged with the culpable homicide of 16-year-old Guide Nyachuru at one of the Zambesi Ministries’ summer camps held in Marondera in December 1992. Nyachuru’s naked body was found in the Ruzawi School pool — questions still hang over the circumstances surrounding his drowning. Smyth has always maintained it was a tragic accident.

Smyth was also charged with five counts of crimen injuria relating to incidents during a camp in April 1993 involving five boys from posh Zimbabwean schools.

The culpable homicide prosecution was discontinued when the then Zimbabwean Chief Justice, Anthony Gubbay, ruled the prosecutor in the case had a conflict of interest. Smyth moved to South Africa soon afterwards in 2001.

The allegations of abuse — ritualised beatings to “repent” for sins such as masturbation — surfaced this week following an investigation by the United Kingdom’s Channel 4 News, An Ungodly Crime?, which screened on Thursday February 2 in Britain.

The alleged pattern of behaviour appears contrary to Smyth’s public image in South Africa as a moral crusader and the executive director of the Justice Alliance of South Africa (Jasa). This week Jasa shut down its website.

Smyth and Jasa have been involved in Constitutional Court cases arguing against same-sex marriage, teenage sex, abortion, pornography and euthanasia. He also submitted draft legislation to the department of home affairs to limit access to pornography.

Senior evangelical Anglicans appear to have known of Smyth’s behaviour, which An Ungodly Crime? suggests they appear to have sought to cover up. In the late Seventies and early Eighties, Smyth was chairperson of the Iwerne Trust, an Anglican organisation with close ties to The Church of England. Iwerne organised Christian holiday camps for boys from Britain’s poshest public schools (called private schools in South Africa).

An internal report written by the Iwerne Trust in 1982, in which it acknowledges the “horrific” scale and severity of the alleged beatings by Smyth involving 22 young men since 1978.

The investigator interviewed 13 of the 22 alleged victims. In one of the first reported incidents a 17-year-old claimed that instead of a shoplifting incident being reported to his parents, Smyth offered him the choice of a beating to repent.

“He chose the beating, which was given with a cane in the summer house,” the report stated.

According to the report the beatings “continued with four 17-year-olds, on the bare bottom with a gym shoe (because it leaves less evidence) but was voluntarily accepted as a deterrent to masturbation. Beatings varied from a dozen to 40 strokes.”

The report acknowledged the beatings were “technically all criminal offences” but the organisation appears not to have reported these cases to the police at the time. The report suggests the practice was part of the “sanctifying of young men, and the blessings of fatherly discipline” but noted that a psychiatrist “describes it as suppressed masochistic sexual activity”.

From 1979 the beatings are alleged to have escalated in frequency, severity and the number of teenagers involved. About half of the victims attended Winchester College, England’s oldest public school, where Smyth appeared to have access to students.

While there was no overt sexual activity, the report said: “There was a very frequent association with sexual sins of a comparatively minor kind (masturbation and impure thoughts) and too many sexual overtones”.

The teenagers said the beatings were followed by “embraces”, with the survivor laying on the bed while it is claimed that Smyth “would kneel and pray, linking arms with him and kissing him on the shoulder and back”.

Smyth was not charged, and, instead, left for Zimbabwe in 1984.

There, he continued to source boys from top-end schools, like Bulawayo’s Christian Brothers College and Prince Edward School in Harare, for camps where the psychological manipulation and abuse allegedly continued.

Two friends of Archbishop Welby investigated allegations about John Smythfruston

Archbishop of Canterbury’s ‘delightful’ friend accused of killing teenager in Zimbabwe

A former friend of the Archbishop of Canterbury who left Britain amidst child abuse claims was later charged with killing a teenage boy in Zimbabwe.

Hampshire Police yesterday launched an investigation into claims that John Smyth QC, described by the Most Rev Justin Welby as a “charming and delightful” man, forced young men to endure savage sado-masochistic beatings after grooming them at Christian holiday camps in the late Seventies.

Channel 4 News will tonight report that Mr Smyth, who left Britain after the abuse claims emerged, went on to face charges of killing a 16-year-old boy who was found dead in a swimming pool at a Zimbabwean holiday camp.

The barrister was also accused of swimming naked with Zimbabwean teenagers, showering with them in the nude, and encouraging them to talk about masturbation.

In 1997 he was arrested over claims that he had killed Guide Nyachuru, a 16-year-old boy whose body was discovered at the bottom of the camp’s swimming pool in December 1992. The case of culpable homicide was subsequently dismissed.

Edith Nyachuru, whose brother died at one of Mr Smyth’s camps, say he would still be alive had the barrister faced justice in the UK

Court documents from the time state: “The particular allegations are that [Mr Smyth] made the complainants walk naked to the swimming pool at night; that he took showers with them in the nude; that he talked to them about masturbation and told them to be proud of their ‘dicks’; as Jesus Christ had one; and that he assaulted them on their ‘rear bare buttocks’ with a table tennis bat.”

The case against Mr Smyth collapsed in 1998, after he successfully persuaded Zimbabwe’s Supreme Court that prosecutors had overstated the claims and failed to follow proper procedures.

A lawyer involved in the case told The Telegraph he had been “shocked” after the barrister privately admitted showering with the boys, and said he had warned Mr Smyth to stop.

Channel 4 News has tracked down boys who attended the camps, who insist that the allegations are true.

 

A 1982 report into the claims, commissioned by the Iwerne Trust, was carried out by Mark Ruston, the vicar of the Round Church in Cambridge, with whom the Archbishop lodged during the late Seventies, in his final year at university.

The Archbishop has said his friendship with the Reverend Ruston was “extraordinary privilege” and he was “inspired” by him.

A second friend of the Archbishop, the Reverend David Fletcher, was the trustee of the Iwerne Trust who led the investigation into the incidents.


A report by the Iwerne Trust, the charity that ran the Christian camps at which Mr Smyth met many of the victims, documents how he persuaded one of the boys to assist with the attacks.

Mr Ruston wrote that while some of the victims “seem amazingly resilient … the rehabilitation of S … is a cause of concern”.

Mr Ruston’s report says the young men were “conned” by the barrister into taking part in the naked beatings.

The report, written by Canon Mark Ruston, a close friend of the  Rev Justin Welby, said that the teenage boy, identified only as “S”, was “brought into sharing the ‘ministry’ in the summer of 1980”.

He wrote in the 1982 report: “There was considerable persuasion for anyone who held back. It had almost become a cult, with a powerful group dynamic.

“S, wanting to ‘be the best for God’, beat as hard as he could. “Immediately after the beating, the man lay on the bed, while [Mr Smyth] and/or S would kneel and pray, linking arms with him and kissing him on the shoulder and back.

He was called to the Bar in 1965 and practiced as a Barrister (Advocate) for 19 years. In 1978 he was appointed a part-time judge, and in 1979 Queen’s Counsel.

One of Mr Smyth’s daughters, who asked not to be named said

that teenage boys were “often” at their family home for barbecues and pool parties and she never saw any abuse.

The alleged assaults came to light in the early 1980s after one of the victims, a 21-year-old student at Cambridge University, reportedly attempted to kill himself after he was told to submit to another beating.

A report by the charity, the Irwerne Trust, in 1982 called the practice “horrific” but the claims were not reported to police until 2013.

A vicar, Mark Ruston, carried out the report for the charity, which has now been seen by Channel 4 News and the Daily Telegraph.

It reported that after identifying the boys, mostly from public school Winchester College, Mr Smyth took them to his home in Hampshire and carried out lashings with a garden cane in his shed.

The allegations of the politicians’ involvement in child abuse emerged during counselling by a vicar of a youth in the 1980s. Leo Abse, a long-serving Labour MP, was also named.

Although there was no evidence to support the claims, the church authorities felt compelled to send the information to Scotland Yard’s investigation into alleged establishment involvement in child abuse.

Public school defends role in alleged cover up of abuse at Christian camps

Winchester College knew in 1982 about allegations of abuse at the camps but says it didn’t go to the police

One of Britain’s leading public schools has been forced to defend its role in an alleged cover up of serious physical abuse at Christian summer camps attended by its pupils in the 1970s and 1980s.

Winchester College knew in 1982 about allegations of sadomasochistic abuse at the hands of John Smyth, a British QC who ran a series of Christian summer camps known as “bash camps”.

Instead, it said: “The then headmaster met John Smyth and required him to undertake never again to enter the college or contact its pupils.”

Cambridgeshire police said on Thursday they could find no record of the report from the diocese of Ely. A spokesman said any allegations would have been passed to Hampshire police to investigate.

In 1984 John and Anne moved with their family to Zimbabwe to do mission work. After two years with African Enterprise they founded Zambesi Ministries which they directed for the next 15 years until John reached 60.

According to Bar Council records, Smyth continued to be a part-time recorder and member of the bar until he moved to Zimbabwe two years later, where in 1986 he set up his own teenage camp for young boys, Zambesi Ministries. Between 1986 and 2002, hundreds of boys passed through the camps.

Smyth is now based in Cape Town, South Africa, where he runs the Justice Alliance, whose website has recently been taken down. In 2005 he was one of an outspoken group who opposed gay marriage equality in South Africa.

Smyth has nine grandchildren and lists his hobbies as skiing, mountain walking and squash.

He did not respond to requests for a comment on Thursday.

PJ was born in the UK in 1971. When he was 13 his family moved to Zimbabwe where his parents took up missionary work for many years. PJ and Ashleigh met at high school in Harare (Zimbabwe’s capital city), married straight after college (1993), and for their first few years of marriage, both taught high school.

In 1997, they started River of Life Church in Harare with a few friends

Q: Where has PJ lived?
A: In the UK until age 13 (1971-1984); in Zimbabwe until age 33 (1984-2004); then in South Africa (2004-2016) until age 45. PJ and family relocated to Maryland in December 2016.

Q: What is his citizenship?
A: PJ is a UK citizen, who enjoyed the status of permanent residence in Zimbabwe, and then in South Africa. Ashleigh is a South African citizen.

Q: Describe PJ’s educational background.
A: PJ attained ‘O’ Levels (aged 16 years) and ‘A’ Levels (aged 18 years), and university degrees from Cape Town University and the University of South Africa in Biblical Studies and Church History.

Q: Describe PJ’s spiritual background.
A: PJ came to faith as a young boy, although he feels he properly owned his faith at age 15. Because he was at boarding schools from ages 8 to 18, PJ’s first genuine experience of local church life came during college. He attended His People Church in Cape Town throughout his university years, and during that time felt God speak to him about one day leading a church.

PJ reflects on three primary shaping spiritual influences. First, his parents. John and Anne Smyth (who live in Cape Town), led PJ to faith and instilled in him a love for God’s Word and for leadership. Second, His People Church in Cape Town. His People taught PJ about the importance of faith, courage and excellence in ministry. Third, Newfrontiers. Terry Virgo, and other Newfrontiers men and women, taught PJ about the importance of the local church, the Holy Spirit and the grace of God.

Q: What are the churches PJ has led in Africa?
A: River of Life Church in Harare, Zimbabwe. GodFirst Church in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Police investigate alleged ‘brutal lashings’ by Christian leader

Police have today launched an investigation into claims that teenage boys from Britain’s leading public schools were violently beaten, in what’s been described as a “sadomasochistic cult” run by a lawyer with links to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Operation Cubic, run by Hampshire Police, will examine allegations uncovered by Channel 4 News that John Smyth QC stripped and brutally lashed 22 young men he had groomed at the Christian youth camps he ran.

The QC, who acted for public morals campaigner Mary Whitehouse in her high profile anti-gay censorship trials, is alleged to have carried out the intense beatings in a specially sound-proofed garden shed at his Winchester home after meeting many of his “disciples” while giving talks at nearby Winchester College.

From 1979 the beatings are alleged to have escalated in frequency, severity and the number of teenagers involved. About half of the victims attended Winchester College, England’s oldest public school, where Smyth appeared to have access to students.

Smyth encouraged the pupils to attend the Iwerne Trust camps where he cultivated small groups of followers in their late teens. They were invited to his home for Sunday lunch.

The report’s author, Mark Ruston, a vicar and also a friend of Archbishop Welby, said the punishments began with “training beatings” that were “semi-naked” which “gave way to complete nakedness to ‘increase humility’.

The teenage boys were reportedly told: “You want to be the best, don’t you? Let me be a helper to you”.

The alleged violence intensified. One boy said, “I could feel the blood spattering on my legs”, another said, “I fainted sometime after a severe beating”. One simply stated: “I was bleeding for three-and-a-half weeks”.


Dear Archbishop of Canterbury: Can you look yourself in the mirror and honestly say you did everything you could to expose John Smyth?

The open letter calls on the Archbishop to reconsider his statement that he first heard of abuse in 2013

The open letter calls on the Archbishop to reconsider his statement that he first heard of abuse in 2013

Dear Archbishop,

I am sure that we will meet one day. You have expressed your deep regret about how the Church has treated myself and my fellow victims since John Smyth’s abuse was uncovered. And besides, we have a lot in common. We are pretty much the same age. You went to Eton, I went to Winchester College. We have shared a university education.

We were both at the Iwerne Trust Christian camps at the same time, although I was there as a boy, you were there as an Iwerne Officer. Crucially, however, we both personally knew John Smyth, the subject of Channel 4’s news reports last Thursday & Friday. He was my abuser. The man who beat me in the horrific detail that was exposed in the television reports (and that I have written about in my account for Monday’s Daily Telegraph, the newspaper that, in my opinion, bravely ran this story before all others).

You have described John Smyth as ‘charming’ and ‘delightful’.Anonymous victim

You have described John Smyth as ‘charming’ and ‘delightful’. Some people have found these words a strange description for someone who is alleged to have performed such monstrous acts, but I completely agree with you. I first met John Smyth when I was 14 years old. He was charming and delightful. That was why I latched on to him.

Reporter tracks down man at centre of abuse allegations Watch | Reporter tracks down man at centre of abuse allegations

01:21

I was at Winchester College at the time. I had been educated away from home since the age of 7. With respect to all the adults that I met during those years of boarding school, John Smyth was probably the first man who seemed genuinely interested in me. Only a ‘charming’ and ‘delightful’ man could have attracted so many young, impressionable men into his cult.

I was beaten by John on a 4-6 weekly basis from the age of 16 to 21. I was ‘in’ at the beginning and ‘out’ at the very end. I actually brought about the end of the beatings in the UK when I tried to commit suicide because I couldn’t face the ‘special’ beating that he had planned for my 21st birthday. By then, for me, it had been over four years and thousands and thousands of lashes. My body couldn’t take it anymore. My mind was frozen in trauma. I was ready to die. Death would have been a relief.

That was in 1982. In 2016, a friend and fellow victim told me that Channel 4 were conducting an investigation into John Smyth – an investigation into the alleged physical abuse that John Smyth handed out in the UK and subsequently continued in Zimbabwe. The first words that my friend said were ‘I hope you don’t mind me telling you…’ but we soon reflected that in fact neither of us minded that complete strangers were uncovering our secret past.

Archbishop of Canterbury: I saw no signs of abuse Watch | Archbishop of Canterbury: I saw no signs of abuse

03:04

We were in fact overjoyed, elated. Why? Well over the intervening years, all of those who had been involved in the beatings had gradually drifted away from each other and lost touch. We had all been great friends at school, often best friends at university and Iwerne Trust Christian camps but, as we had grown older and appreciated the acts of John Smyth for what they were, a terrible catalogue of abuse, we simply found it easier not to meet up, not to socialise, because every time that we saw each other it reminded us of the horrors of the past and, equally troubling, the fact that none of us or our families had ever reported John Smyth to the police, none of us had ever broken the bond of secrecy that we had sworn to him and each other while the abuse was occurring.

And so, in our adult years we had become gradually isolated, intentionally separated from each other. Why am I saying ‘we’ and not just reflecting my own experience? Because, once I learned that Channel 4 were investigating John Smyth. I found that instead of wishing to remain isolated, I positively wanted to search out all my old friends, my fellow victims. I wanted to reconnect and spread the news that Channel 4 and the Daily Telegraph (not any of the institutions that we had imagined might one day get in touch) wanted to listen to our story, to understand our experiences with John Smyth, to build a picture of everything that had occurred to us from 1978 to 1982.

We kept saying ‘I hope you’re okay’Anonymous victim

The world is quite different now. I found most of my old friends and fellow victims within a few minutes of opening  my laptop: they were on Facebook, LinkedIn, all the social media sites. We were pretty much all there. And we were all delighted to make contact. In the four months that I was involved in assisting various reporters, I have either spoken to or messaged about half of John Smyth’s alleged 22 UK victims. I have even spoken to one of the people who described to me the very similar way that John Smyth had beaten him in Zimbabwe.

In those conversations, I soon became aware of an interesting thing. None of us were really bothered to talk about John Smyth. We knew everything that he had done to each of us. How appalling it had been. How cruelly and malevolently he had used some individuals in particular. That went without saying. We also weren’t particularly curious about what jobs we were doing, whether we had married, had children etc. That didn’t seem important. We were most concerned about each other’s well-being, we kept saying ‘I hope you’re okay.’ Even as we talked or messaged, we continually checked that the other person was comfortable with describing how they felt.

John Smyth is tracked down by Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News Credit: Channel 4 News

And we discovered that although we had experienced a wide range of mental turmoil, depression and trauma in the intervening years, we all universally had an impression that the media investigation was a GOOD THING – that although it was difficult, shameful to talk to the Channel 4 team and reporter Peter Robertson on behalf of the Daily Telegraph, it  was actually a cathartic experience. Because someone was asking us sympathetically what had happened, how we felt. And we all felt a bit better for it.

Because, Archbishop, that is one of the important points that I would like to convey in this letter, from all the victims that I have been in touch with, no matter how different our outcomes. The media asked us, we told, they listened and they reported. Prior to that, none of us had been contacted since 1983 by any of the four institutions that had known our story or had come to learn of it. Actually, that’s not quite true. One of us, one of the victims had contacted the church himself in 2012, reported his experiences, which in turn prompted the police ‘investigation’ that you told us about in your comments to the press.

Somehow, all the people who were involved at any time in both the charities never mentioned anything about John Smyth’s horrific practice to each other.Anonymous victim

But that was him bravely contacting the church , not the church or any institution contacting him. And we know that the police investigation collapsed very quickly because they have said that they were not provided with enough evidence to make a case.

So, let’s consider these four institutions, the ones who at some point or other knew about John Smyth’s abuse before the Telegraph’s first story last Thursday morning:

The Iwerne Trust – were aware of the whole story in 1982. I can say that unequivocally because they commissioned a report by your fellow Iwerne Minster Officer and great friend the Reverend Mark Ruston in the Spring of 1982. Channel 4 showed me the report. It has the initials of the Iwerne Trustees at its head, many of whom are still alive, some holding very influential positions in the Church of England.

John Smyth is now a public morality campaigner in South Africa Credit: Channel 4 News

It’s an incredible account. It contains, in my opinion, the whole story in a few pages. Every detail is correct to my mind: the number of victims, the scale of the abuse, the criminal act that was broken, the trauma that the victims were likely to suffer. Amazing.  A couple of months after I tried to commit suicide in 1982, everything that anyone would need to know Mark Ruston has written down.

Identities of all the victims are protected by initialisation but I’ve subsequently found out that in order to compile the report enormous efforts were made to contact my friends and fellow victims. They had nearly all been interviewed by Mark Ruston. That’s why it’s so accurate. It’s a succinct distillation of everything the victims knew and some remarkable interpretation by Mark Ruston himself.  At the time, I was in hospital. He didn’t contact me. But even though I never met him I still to this day consider it to be completely accurate.

The Titus Trust – set up in 1997 and who took over the Iwerne Trust fundraising and have run very similar Christian camps for young teenagers up to the present day. Time and space prevents me from naming the personnel who have been involved in both Titus and the Iwerne Trust. Titus have told the media (not the victims) that they were aware, by their own admission, in 2014 of John Smyth’s activities. They’ve said that this was the first they’d ever heard of the abuse.

Apparently, Mark Ruston’s report that the Iwerne Trust commissioned in 1982 somehow never got handed over in the paperwork exchange between Iwerne and Titus. Somehow, all the people who were involved at any time in both the charities never mentioned anything about John Smyth’s horrific practice to each other. We do know that Titus asked Andrew Graystone, a PR advisor to Christian organisations, to advise them about how to deal with the knowledge that they had suddenly ‘discovered’.

Richard Gittins, another of the victims, also endorses the letter Credit: Channel 4 News

Mr Graystone recommended to the Titus Trust that they should make a full, proper independent investigation, inform the police and contact any institution or individual that might have known anything about John Smyth in order that the Titus Trust would be able to reveal the whole story. And, as Mr Graystone advised, that this was the specific, unequivocal type of action that would be most helpful to the victims of the abuse.

Titus didn’t hold that independent investigation. Instead, they relieved Mr Graystone of his advisory position and got in touch with their lawyers. They did notify the police. The police never contacted myself or any of the victims that I have spoken to. It appears that, outside of the one victim who had reported John Smyth, there was no corroboration from anyone or any institution that persuaded the police that there was enough evidence for the investigation to continue. The victim who reported was told as much. Titus offered him no direct support, admitted no responsibility.

Two private individuals (one of whom Channel 4 has identified as David Fletcher of the Iwerne Trust) paid anonymously for 10 therapy sessions. To put that useful counselling into perspective, I have been lucky enough to have received approximately 400 hours of therapy. I am still receiving therapy at the Maudsley Hospital in London and the therapy I’m receiving now is fantastic, really helpful. But it took me 10 years to find a therapist who could even identify the exact nature of my trauma. 10 years for me. Only 10 sessions offered to the one victim who reported. And none of those sessions paid for by the Titus Trust.

Mr Smyth was a barrister and part-time judge Credit: Channel 4 News

Winchester College – informed of the abuse in 1982 by the Iwerne Trust. I say the College, because it was actually the headmaster of the College, John Thorn, who  was informed by David Fletcher on behalf of the Iwerne Trust. I know that the Headmaster confronted John Smyth and drew up an undertaking for Smyth to sign, to prevent him from ministering to young children again. One of my parents saw that undertaking. Other victims’ parents too. But they never saw that document signed by John Smyth. And I know crucially that the promise at the bottom of the document that the Headmaster, John Thorn, made as his own personal ‘undertaking’ – a promise that he would distribute to all future headmasters was not kept. I know this for certain. I’ll tell you how I know, when we meet.

The Church – it’s really over to you on this one. I’m sure that you’ll tell me all the details from your end and 2012 onwards when we meet. So that can wait. Wow! That was a long letter. But then it has been over forty years since I first met John Smyth. I hope that some of what I’ve written has given you an indication of how difficult the silence of those last forty years have been.

You have to ask yourself. ‘Can I look myself in the mirror and honestly say that I did everything I could to report to the correct authority all the things that I knew?’Anonymous victim

The final thing that I would like to say is that, from my perspective, it’s not about institutions and organisations; all of those four institutions that I’ve listed include good people doing important, valuable work. So, for me, it’s all about specific individuals. It’s about John Smyth. Myself. The other victims. And all those individuals who have known about this story during those 40 years – and said nothing.

My therapist likes to keep thing simple, which is useful for me. She tells me that there is a triangle in abuse: the ‘abuser’, the ‘victims’ and the ‘observers’ (observers are people who knew but never reported appropriately). I personally find it quite easy to think about John Smyth, the abuser. The victims too. But considering the observers is much, much more difficult. Technically speaking, as a victim, I am ‘excused’ from being an observer (no matter how much I feel like one) but the observers in the John Smyth case include my closest family, everyone who has supported me throughout the years.

Mark Stibbe is one of the victims endorsing the letter Credit: Channel 4 News

They also include all the individuals in all the institutions who also know the story but did not report appropriately. Mark Ruston, your friend, in 1982, when he wrote his report in 1982 became an observer because he wrote that he believed that a criminal act had been committed and he was one of the many people, almost 35 years ago, who failed to report to the police. A decision that had terrible consequences. But a particularly well-informed one.

You, archbishop are also an observer. How and when you became one I know that you will want to tell me. And here’s the difficulty about being an observer. You have to ask yourself. “I knew about John Smyth. I become aware about some of the things that this abuser did, I have ‘observed’ them. Can I look myself in the mirror and honestly say that I did everything I could to report to the correct authority all the things that I knew? Did I give the people who might bring the abuser to justice every scrap of information that they might need? And, if I didn’t, then thinking very carefully about this – whose side have I been on, all this time? The side of the victims. Or the side of the abuser?”

It’s a very troubling position to find yourself in. I totally understand this and that was why, when Cathy Newman interviewed me after the showing of Channel 4’s second news report, I said on camera that I wanted to give you some time to reconsider the statements that you’ve made. I’d like to believe that you will find somewhere where you can be alone, without the advice of anyone else other than your own conscience and God. And when you have decided that you would like to talk, I’m now actually thinking that it’s not really important that we meet. In fact, there’s no reason for us to meet at all. Better not to. Because I know that everything that you tell me, you would happily say to the whole world.

Best wishes, and as we victims of John Smyth are always saying to each other – ‘I hope you’re okay’.

“W “

PS – In the account that I gave in Monday’s edition of The Daily Telegraph, I said that it was my final contribution and that I was returning to my family and normal life. And I can appreciate that Telegraph readers seeing this letter today might think that I have lied. The truth is that when I contributed to the piece on Monday, I thought that it was the end of what I wanted to say. It’s just that what I’ve seen and heard from you since on the John Smyth matter (i.e. nothing) has impelled me to write. However, just to be clear, I apologise for lying. I suppose this is a salutary reminder to us all of how a person can say things sincerely at one time and yet still be telling a lie.

Bishop Welby’s response, rather the lack of, to another survivor of abuse by a priest:

Paul Butler, the bishop of Durham, who leads the C of E’s safeguarding work, privately apologised to Joe for the church’s response to his disclosures. He said he had no doubt that Joe had been abused by Garth Moore, and there were likely to be other survivors who have not yet come forward. He ended his handwritten letter, seen by the Guardian, with: “I am … deeply sorry for the hurt I have caused you.”

But there has been no apology from Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, to whom Joe reports writing 18 letters after the church began examining his case. He had one reply, from a correspondence secretary, assuring him that “the archbishop would hold him in his prayers”.

Covenant Life Church Sure Knows How To Pick’em

February 3, 2017

What did CLC pastor PJ Smyth know and when did he know it?

Breaking: News 4 has aired their first two longer investigative stories on the abuse carried out by John Smyth. You can view the first story here. You can view the second story here.

Breaking: PJ Smyth has just released a video which can be viewed immediately below. PJ Smyth’s statement is not good news for Covenant Life Church.  It is my opinion that he comes across as a deceptive man with something to hide. CLC has a storied history of former senior pastors who have been deceptive with church members, unfortunately, it looks like they can add another one to the list.

For starters, PJ refers to his father’s abuse as “excessive discipline.” PJ talked only of his father’s alleged abuse while living in the UK decades ago.

Long, long ago and far, far away.

It all occurred when PJ was a young boy.  He only heard vague rumors of his father’s behavior.  End of story.  Nothing to see here, now move along.

Nice try PJ.

What about those years in between the time you and dear old dad lived in the UK and SA?  I believe your dad packed up and took the family to Zimbabwe in 1984, where he then worked for 17 years. By my calculations that would mean your dad left Zimbabwe for SA in 2001. You would have been 30 years-old!  While in Zimbabwe your dad was charged with the culpable homicide of 16-year-old Guide Nyachuru at one of the Zambesi Ministries’ summer camps held in Marondera in December 1992. (Link)  He managed to dodge those charges and fled to SA. (Link)  Any recollections of those years PJ?  You’re a clever man, surely you don’t expect us to believe that when you were 21 years old you had no knowledge of the charges of homicide against your father, do you?

PJ has some explaining to do.  My bet is the corrupt leaders at CLC who rallied around CJ Mahaney and Joshua Harris to cover up the sexual abuse of children happening in their church will continue their corrupt ways and attempt to provide cover for PJ Smyth.  It is time for the good members of CLC to rise up and demand the truth from their leaders, and then demand the resignation of corrupt leaders.

Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, MD sure knows how to pick a winner. CLC, formerly the flagship church of the Sovereign Grace denomination, has been embroiled in a sexual abuse scandal that some say was the largest to hit the Evangelical Church in America. Former senior pastors C.J. Mahaney and Joshua Harris, along with assistant pastor (and brother-in-law of C.J. Mahaney) Grant Layman resigned from the church. Youth leader, Nate Morales was convicted of sexually abusing boys and sentenced to 40 years in prison. Hundreds of disenchanted church members quit.

Covenant Life Church, seeking a fresh beginning, left the Sovereign Grace denomination and began a world-wide search for a new pastor.  The man CLC leaders (the same leaders complicit in the coverup of abuse) selected to lead them out of the morass of sexual abuse and coverup and restore them to a position of respectability was PJ Smyth. While a relative unknown in the USA, PJ was a superstar in South Africa, much like CJ used to be in the USA.  Convinced they had found their next Christian celebrity, CLC leaders had an easy time of convincing the Kool-Aid swilling members who had remained loyal to the church that PJ was their man. The members reportedly voted overwhelmingly ( 97% in favor) of hiring PJ. One year later, in January of 2017, PJ and his family arrived in the USA.

https://player.vimeo.com/video/199353011

 

All appeared well in CLC-land. PJ was in charge and ready to make everyone forget CJ and lead CLC to new heights of fame and fortune. Who could have known that within one month of PJ’s arrival CLC leaders would once again be indirectly rocked by more charges of abuse?

While one cannot place the blame for the sins of the father on the son, it would be reasonable to believe that PJ Smyth had to have knowledge of his father’s sinister life.  The Archbishop of Canterbury became aware of allegations in 2013. When did PJ Smyth become aware that his father was beating young men?  Did PJ report any of these brutal beatings to police?  Was PJ Smyth ever beaten by his father? Assuming PJ Smyth was aware of what his father was engaged in, did he advise CLC leaders of the potential fall-out from his father’s evil deeds?

It would appear CLC leaders did not exercise due diligence prior to hiring PJ Smith. CLC leaders have repeatedly demonstrated that they are sorely lacking any discernment. In my opinion, these leaders need to resign. One also wonders if church members will divest themselves of the notion that only a celebrity can lead their church? The whole culture at CLC seems, to this outsider, to be sick. Perhaps the healthiest thing CLC could do would be to close shop.

It would also be interesting to know whether PJ Smyth was truthful with US Immigration officials in his visa interview.

Below is a video in which Mark Mitchell recounts the thorough vetting procedure they put PJ Smyth through prior to offering him the job of senior pastor. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it sounds to me as if the CLC pastors had determined the job was PJ’s prior to the Search Committee even beginning their work!

A little refresher course on problems CLC leaders would like you to believe are in their past:

Channel 4 Reveals “Sadomasochistic Cult” Allegedly Linked to Elite Evangelical Anglican Camp Holiday

This one is being reported widely; from Channel 4 News:

Police have today launched an investigation into claims that teenage boys from Britain’s leading public schools were violently beaten, in what’s been described as a “sadomasochistic cult” run by a lawyer with links to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Operation Cubic, run by Hampshire Police, will examine allegations uncovered by Channel 4 News that John Smyth QC stripped and brutally lashed 22 young men he had groomed at the Christian youth camps he ran.

Archbishop Justin Welby, who worked at the camps managed by The Iwerne Trust [1], and was once a colleague of Mr Smyth, issued an “unreserved and unequivocal” apology on behalf of the Church of England, admitting it had “failed terribly”.

(For non-British readers: public schools here mean posh private schools) The beatings were so severe that some alleged victims were forced to wear adult nappies due to bleeding, and one, allegedly pursued by Smyth to university, attempted suicide rather than submit to a beating on his 21st birthday.

Smyth (pronounced “John Smythe”) was famous in the as the “go-to barrister” for “clean up TV” campaigner Mary Whitehouse, and he represented her in action against Gay News in 1977, for publishing a poem “about a homosexual centurion’s love for Christ at the Crucifixion” (the paper was convicted of the archaic offence of “blasphemous libel”), and against the National Theatre in 1980, for staging a play that featured a homosexual rape scene (although he fell ill before the trial and the case was unsuccessful).

Smyth appears to have had a particular obsession with homosexuality – his website (since deleted, but available on the Internet Archive) includes booklets such as Why Choose Heterosexuality?, Homosexuality and Political Correctness: The Great Media Deception, and The Biblical Teaching on Homosexuality.

Unlike some other historical abuse claims, in this instance we have a very clear paper trail which shows that the Iwerne Trust compiled a report on Smyth in 1982, which was passed to the police by the Titus Trust in 2014 after it took over the Iwerne Trust’s work.

Smyth did not challenge the report, but instead left the UK for Zimbabwe in 1984, where he worked for a mission group called Africa Enterprise for two years and then ran similar camps under the name of the Zambesi Trust from 1986.

In 1997, he was charged with culpable homicide over the death of Guide Nyachuru, a boy who drowned at one of his camps in December 1992, and of having injured several other boys in April 1993 [2]. However, the case collapsed due to legal irregularities, after which he relocated to South Africa. There, Smyth became Director of the Christian Lawyers’ Association of South Africa, in which capacity he opposed civil unions, and later became Honorary Director of the Justice Alliance of South Africa (which has also deleted its website).

The Iwerne Holidays were founded in the 1930s, and they have been instrumental in promoting evangelicalism within the Anglican Church. Here’s some background from From Controversy to Co-Existence: Evangelicals in the Church of England 1914-1980, by Randle Manwaring and published by the Cambridge University Press in 1985 (pp. 57-58):

For a long time there had been Scripture Union Camps but, as the work of its sister organisation, the C.S.S.M. [Children’s Special Service Mission], expanded, so the latter flowered into what were called Varsities and Public School Camps… These took many forms… but one the most far-sighted and far-reaching enterprises was led by the Rev. E. J. H. Nash, who, at the age of thirty-three, gave up his work as chaplain of Wrekin College (a Maryrs Memorial Trust School) to work full-time for C.S.S.M. and S.U. Immediately, he organised camps at Clayesmore School, Iwerne Minster, Dorset, which continue to this day, the mantle of Elijah having fallen on the Rev. David Fletcher. The keynotes of Iwerne were always very simple bible teaching and pastoral care through strongly developed friendships at all levels. Attendance was by invitation only and limited to boys at major public schools, at least boarding schools. The unofficial, sotto voce, slogan of the ‘Bash Camps’ (Bash being the very affectionate name given to E. J. H. Nash) was ‘key boys from key schools’ and, whilst this strategy of creating a patrician, elitist Christian society was criticised by many, the results were most remarkable…

Many influential figures in British Anglican evangelicalism were associated with the camps over the years, including John Stott and Bishop Michael Green.

Fletcher was in charge when the report on Smyth was compiled (he “declined to comment to Channel 4”); and Smyth’s alleged flagellomania gives an unfortunate new connotation to the name “Bash Camps”, although it seems that the abuse took place away from the camps themselves. An assessment from a 1969 work (The Evangelicals, by John King) has been included in Nash’s Wikipedia entry, and it provides some clue as to how the culture of the camps may have facilitated Smyth’s alleged predations in the decade that followed:

Controversy is eschewed by “Bash campers”; it is held to be noisy and undignified – and potentially damaging. As a result many issues which ought to be faced are quietly avoided. Any practical decisions that must be made are taken discreetly by the leadership and passed down the line. The loyalty of the rank and file is such that decisions are respected; any who question are liable to find themselves outside the pale… It does not give a place to the process of argument, consultation and independent thought which are essential to any genuine co-operation, inside the church or outside it.

There are two details from yesterday’s media report that may perhaps have been overlooked:

1. In 2012 the media moralist Anne Atkins published an article in the Daily Mail headlined “‘I haven’t handed over a sex offender to the police – because I was told in confidence’: A leading agony aunt makes an explosive confession”. The article was mainly about Atkins’s knowledge about sex abuse by a man she named as “Peter”, but near the end she wrote about another individual:

Years ago, when I was still a child, we had a family friend who was an eminent lawyer, with considerable influence in a well-known public school. He used to invite boys to his house for Bible study. And then encourage them to confess their sins. If they admitted masturbation, for instance, he would strip and beat them, in a shed where no other adults were allowed.

When word of this got out, the parents understandably wanted to protect their sons; the school wanted to protect its reputation.

Instead of facing trial, he was allowed to leave the country  quietly .  .  . and continue the same practices abroad, where eventually he punished a boy so severely that he died. Again, I understand there was no trial.

Friends of ours recently went to stay with him and his family, still living respectably in another country. ‘How are they?’ I asked.

Speaking on Channel 4 News, Atkins has now confirmed that this part of her article pertained to Smyth – although her claim that the boy died due being “punished” rather than accidentally due to drowning has not been substantiated.

Channel 4 News specifies that according to the old report on Smyth “the abuse was violent but not sexual”, but extra details in the South Africa Mail & Guardian state that Smyth is alleged to kissed his victims’ backs and necks after beatings. He is also alleged to have had an enthusiasm for showering with boys while in Africa.

2. The 1982 report has not been published, but the Channel 4 News report includes a couple of screenshots. These show that a second person was also involved in administering beatings:

J and S saw this as a ‘ministry’ from God. But the ‘ministry’ of discipline in this sense, was secret, self-appointed and never approved by other Christian leaders (cf. Acts xiii.1-2). and of course unknown in lists of ministries (cf. Ephesians iv.ll, etc.)

The knowledge of other people’s sins, and ‘power’ over them through their humiliation, nakedness and beating, is exceedingly bad for the operators.

Note the plural “operators”; “J” is John Smyth – but who is “S”?

There are similarities here with the Anglican Bishop Peter Ball, who in 2015 was convicted of misconduct in a public office for similar practices involving “humiliation, nakedness and beating” in the 1980s and 1990s. It seems that the Anglo-Catholic Ball and the Evangelical Smyth might have a couple of things in common.

UPDATE 1 (3 February): Anne Atkins has now published an article in the Telegraph, titled “Inside the Sexual Apartheid of John Smyth’s Summer Camps”. Although the camps were for boys, it appears that in some cases their sisters could also attend as “helpers”, although “confined to the kitchen”:

I was discreetly steered away from volunteering for a helicopter trip advertised over breakfast; told off for stopping to chat to a young man I was introduced to destined for the same Oxford college; then for agreeing to play tennis with my brother (he was not); and finally for talking to some boys who lay down near us at the swimming pool. It was the last straw: it was politely suggested I should leave, as I didn’t fit in….My husband – not eligible because not public-school-educated, but with his clergy world heavily influenced by it – has boasted ever since that I am the only person to have been sent down from one of its camps.

UPDATE 2 (3 February): Channel 4 News has now broadcast a follow-up segment about Smyth’s activity in Zimbabwe and how the Titus Trust dealt with the matter when it took over the Iwerne Trust in 2014. Once again, there’s an interesting screenshot of a document, this time of some legal advice that has some background about how Smyth was dealt with at the time:

The trustees at the time did warn other organisations in the UK about the character of John Smyth in an attempt to ensure that he could not continue to work with young persons in same capacity. The Headmaster of Winchester College was immediately notified. The trustees subsequently ensured that the Lawyers Christian Fellowship was made aware so that he was prevented from speaking at one of their meetings and various other organisation were contacted. Preventative actions were therefore taken but there was not a full disclosure… At a later date the trustees responded to a request for information from Zimbabwe and ensured that church leaders warned their congregations about John Smyth.

UPDATE 3 (4 February): The Telegraph has published a follow-up article, which notes that the allegations appeared in a 1989 book by John Thorn, a former headmaster of Winchester School, titled The Road to Winchester. Here’s the quote:

I was told the extraordinary news that the neighbouring barrister had gained such personal control over a few of the senior boys in the group, and had kept it after they left the school, that he was claiming to direct their burgeoning relationship with girls and was, with their consent, punishing them physically when they confessed to him they had sinned.

The World of Conservative Evangelism was reft in twain. Absurd and baseless rumours were circulated that he was an unhinged tyrant, the embodiment of Satan. He must be banished. And – quietly but efficiently – he was.

He left the Winchester district and then the United Kingdom. He departed for Africa with his family and, by me, has not been heard of since.

This minimising spin immediately brings to mind the dismissive way that allegations against Peter Ball were dealt with in Eric Kemp’s memoir.

It does not appear that Smyth was named in the book (I haven’t been able to see the original), but according the Telegraph Smyth then circulated a confidential release to church leaders in Zimbabwe in which he admitted to an “aberration of judgment” due to a dependency on sleeping pills. Oddly, however, it seems that he never felt the need to make amends to those who had suffered at the receiving end of this “aberration”.

So – punishment dished out to boys and young men for having normal sexual feelings; but a feeble excuse for his own predatory sadism.

Footnotes

1. The village of Iwerne Minster is misspelt in some reports – the BBC thus has “the Irwerne Trust” and some other sites “the Irwene Trust”.

2. These details are from a legal document relating to his application for the case against him to be dismissed (Smyth v Ushewokunze and Anor – ZLR 544 w). The document can be seen in the 1997 edition of The Zimbabwe Law Reports and in Suid-Afrikaanse Hofverslae, Volume 3, both of which are available on Snippet view on Google Books. The text states:

The applicant, who ran several youth camps in Zimbabwe, was charged with culpable homicide as the result of the drowning of a 16-year-old boy at one of the camps in December 1992. He was in addition charged with five counts of crimen injuria arising from his alleged conduct at the same camp during April 1993. The applicant was arrested on 15 September 1997 and taken to a magistrate for initial remand.

…In 1984 he gave up legal practice and came to Zimbabwe with his family on a temporary immigration permit to do Christian teachings. For the initial two years he devoted himself to a mission organisation known as Africa Enterprise. Then, in 1986, he founded Zambesi Ministries, a body whose primary objective is to work in conjunction with High Schools throughout the country and establish camps for pupils during the school holidays. These camps are known as Zambesi Holidays. The first such camp was held in August 1986 at Lake Chivero. Since that time the applicant has directed camps for Grade 7 to Form 6 pupils every school holiday, with the venue changing after a few years to Ruzawi School, in Marondera, and more recently, to Zambesi Ministries’ own centre on Cotter Farm,  ten kilometres from Marondera.  The camps are normally attended by about ninety boy-campers and thirty leaders, usually senior pupils who have exhibited strong leadership qualities.

Rev. E. J. H. Nash, who, at the age of thirty-three, gave up his work as chaplain of Wrekin College (a Maryrs Memorial Trust School) to work full-time for C.S.S.M. and S.U. Immediately, he organised camps at Clayesmore School, Iwerne Minster, Dorset, which continue to this day, the mantle of Elijah having fallen on the Rev. David Fletcher.

Comments:

As this scandal, for scandal it is, unfolds there are a number of questions and issues that need to be raised/addressed.

As my earlier post made clear, I write inter alia as a former Bash camper (later senior camper) and am truly shocked and saddened by what has been revealed and what still may be revealed. How foolish of the Titus Trust not to take the advice of Revd Andrew (Graystone) when he first offered it.

1. Why did the trustees of Iwerne Trust not go to the police in 1982? One reason may be that they worked together with the Governors of Winchester College who, having consulted survivors and their parents, decided not to, a decision today’s Governors now regret. But Iwerne Trust was in a completely different position. The abuser was one of them (I would normally say the ‘alleged abuser’, but the Winchester press release is frank, as are other public statements), whereas the school was faced with abuse of pupils other than by a member of staff or person formally connected with the school, and from all accounts the abuse was perpetrated off the school premises.

2. Surely it is disingenuous of the trustees of Titus Trust to disclaim responsibility? They assumed the responsibilities of the Iwerne Trust, a charity only recently removed from the Charity Commission register (Feb 2016). Iwerne Trust and Titus Trust appear to have had common trustees. Revd David Fletcher, who ran the Iwerne camps until 1986, only stepped down as a trustee of Titus Trust in the last two years, according to filings (Jan 2015). The accounts of Titus Trust appear to reveal unrestricted funds far in excess of requirements. It is in a position to compensate survivors, not that financial compensation would be any way of turning the clock back.

3. For the National Church to be saying that the Titus Trust (and Iwerne Trust before it) is a non-denominational charity is also disingenuous. The whole enterprise (both its trustees and operations) was distinctively Anglican. How accountable are ordained priests in the CofE when they are engaged in Christian work which does not, for whatever reason, carry a stipend?

4. Did the Church of England handle the survivor correctly in 2013 when he approached the Bishop of Ely? I make no comment on this, but it will clearly be the subject of further analysis and disclosure. The important point here is that, based on the silence of the Iwerne Trust and the decision of Winchester, the suggestion that the current Archbishop knew anything about these events before 2013 is fanciful in the extreme. I had almost as much contact with John Smyth as countless other Iwerne officers and boys (albeit a few years before) and there is no evidence to suggest that these sadistic activities were carried out at the Iwerne camps themselves.

5. What other bodies need to be approached in this matter? Scripture Union would appear to have had a connection, if only because the camps bear its imprimatur and Revd David Fletcher undertook his duties leading the Iwerne camps as a Scripture Union Field Worker, according to his Crockford’s entry.

The ramifications of this may stretch far and wide. Yet again an independent inquiry is required.

PS Re David Evans, Sunday services were conducted in the Clayesmore School chapel!!


Toby Austin Richard William Low, 1st Baron Lord Aldington

...the governing body of Winchester in 1982 (the warden and fellows) was led by Lord Aldington who, of course, was famously accused (fairly or unfairly) by Count Nikolai Tolstoy-Miloslavsky of having sanctioned and covered up the deportation of Cossack POWs held by the Germans to the Soviets, who then executed them.

I suppose that, when faced with a problem of the type presented by Smyth, the first instinct of Aldington (deputy chairman of the Tory party during the Vassall and Profumo affairs) and his urbane headmaster, John Thorn, would be to clean things up, make sure everyone did not start blabbing, close ranks and move on.

 


…Any enquiry must focus on the response of the Iwerne Trust in 1982-83. John Smyth was its chairman, and evidently used his position to groom a group of Winchester boys whom he physically abused at his home. Although none of the abuse took place at Iwerne camps, his central role in the Trust and at the camps, puts the spotlight on the leadership of the Trust and especially the then Trustees.

The Trustees knew very well the extent of John Smyth’s behaviour and its profound impact on his victims, thanks to Canon Mark Ruston’s report, parts of which have appeared on Channel 4 and in the Daily Telegraph. I am not clear whether Mark Ruston was himself a Trustee at this point, or merely acting on their behalf. Given his graphic descriptions of the abuse and the trenchancy of his commentary (eg the ‘cult’ around Smyth), it is surprising that he did not insist the matter be reported to the police; but he may have been constrained by the collective view of the Trustees. One wonders what minutes or correspondence survive from this period: it will important for any enquiry to get statements from the surviving Trustees and those Iwerne leaders ‘in the know’.

Also there are questions about what the Trustees knew of Smyth’s subsequent activities in Zimbabwe, after they had banished him from this country, and whether they could have done anything to prevent the catalogue of further abuse. Smyth seems have been keen to stay in touch with his erstwhile colleagues in Iwerne circles.


….”Justin Welby had no knowledge of what is alleged to have happened over 40 years ago at VPS camp”

Yes he did: he was told in 2013. He says that quite clearly in his statement.

The much deeper question is why, when the matter was raised in 2013, was nothing done. And why, when the matter was raised at some earlier point, or perhaps when rumours circulated (it doesn’t sound like it was terribly secret) was the perpetrator, to use a phrase of the racing world, “warned off” rather than prosecuted? Post 1994, ie post R v Brown, the defence of consent would not have availed him. Post Peter Ball, this is even more worrying.

LORD ALDINGTON – DEAD, BUT NO R.I.P.

By Srdja Trifkovic http://www.rockfordinstitute.org/NewsST121900.htm 12-19-00 (Dr. Rimland’s comments are ‘Zundelsite’).

Trifkovic: Lord Aldington, 86, a former British trade minister and Conservative Party vice chairman who filed one of Britain’s most famous libel cases against a man who labeled him a war criminal, died of cancer Dec. 8 at his home in Kent, southern England. In 1989, Lord Aldington was awarded $2.2 million in damages after winning a libel suit against historian Count Nikolai Tolstoy, a distant relative of Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy, who had written a pamphlet accusing Lord Aldington of war crimes.

Zundelsite: Censoring history by way of libel actions is unfortunately the method the rich and well-connected use against their pesky critics.

Trifkovic: As a British army officer in Austria at the end of World War II, Lord Aldington — then known by his given name, Toby Low — oversaw the repatriation of thousands of Cossack and Yugoslav refugees [ Ed. … and, of course, the ethnic Germans from the Soviet Union and the Baltic states] . Many were subsequently killed or interned in prison camps.
At the libel trial, Lord Aldington agreed that the refugees’ fate was “ghastly” but said he had not known that many faced execution if returned to their homelands (The Washington Post, December 9, 2000).

Zundelsite: To assume that a high-ranking British Army officer in the field, whose unit daily interrogated refugees and prisoners-of-war, all of whom had either fled from, fought against, or at one time were part of Stalin’s army, is stretching credulity a bit too far. Only a fellow Lodge or Club member sitting as judge on a bench in London could be hypocritical enough to seem to believe such an answer.

Trifkovic: An obituary sometimes begs a thousand words – well worth doing in this case, especially since it’s been over a decade since we wrote about Aldington, Tolstoy, and one of the greatest untold tragedies of World War II. Zundelsite: The tragedy was not untold. There were millions of people affected by it, and detailed accounts have long been written about it. Only the British, and to a lesser degree, the American power elite suppressed it, because their clique had formulated and approved these vicious pro-Communist policies in Teheran and Yalta. They are co-guilty of what happened. They share in the responsibility for these atrocities.

Trifkovic: This is a story of heinous crimes that went unpunished and of establishment conspiracies to cover them up, of a miscarriage of justice, of one man’s quixotic efforts to tell the truth and another’s quiet campaign to keep it suppressed.

Zundelsite: Is it really “quixotic” to expose the deliberate murder of millions? At least there is now an admission that one man – not to mention his network of accomplices – tried to suppress this crime.

Trifkovic: The story starts at Yalta in February 1945, when the return of all Soviet citizens who found themselves in the Allied zone was demanded by Stalin — and was duly agreed to by Churchill and FDR. Accordingly, hundreds of thousands of Soviet POWs liberated by the Allies were sent back home, regardless of their wishes, and regardless of what Stalin had in store for them.

Zundelsite: What does that make Churchill and Roosevelt? Knowing and willing accomplices who had for years been briefed about Soviet war aims and the policies of Stalin and the behavior of his secret police and murderous Red Army. Yet they agreed to hand these people over!

Trifkovic: In addition, in May and June 1945 tens of thousands of refugees from Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union — unarmed civilians escaping communism, as well as anticommunist resistance fighters and assorted collaborationists — were rounded up by the British in Austria, and forcibly delivered to Stalin and Tito. Most of them were summarily executed, sometimes within earshot of the British.
Zundelsite: Within earshot not only of the British! Also the Czechs, the Hungarians, the Yugoslavs, Tito’s bunch of murderers, AND the Americans.

Trifkovic: Forced repatriations were known as Operation Keelhaul — the “last secret” of World War II, as Alexander Solzhenitsyn called it. Men, women, and children were forced into boxcars headed for the Soviet zone in the east, or for Slovenia in the south.

Trifkovic: Enter Lord Aldington, then a politically well-connected 30-year-old brigadier called Toby Low, who was the Fifth Corps chief of staff. He was also an aspiring Tory politician, hopeful of being nominated as a candidate at the forthcoming general election in Britain. Low had no qualms about acting upon Macmillan’s suggestions.

Zundelsite: No qualms? He admitted that the effect of his orders would be “ghastly”. It must be recalled that his orders were given after the war was lost, the shooting had stopped, the German Wehrmacht was defeated and had surrendered. There was no military justification for his actions – even of “military necessity”!

Trifkovic: On May 21, 1945 he issued an order to 5th Corps officers as to how to define Soviet citizenship: “Individual cases will NOT be considered unless particularly pressed . . . In all cases of doubt, the individual will be treated as a SOVIET NATIONAL.”
The émigrés’ fate was thus sealed. Tolstoy named Aldington in his last book as the chief executor of the policy of forced repatriation on the ground, the man who went way beyond the call of duty in carrying out Macmillan’s instructions, and who did so in contravention of orders.

Zundelsite: By this phrasing of the order – “. . . unless particularly pressed” – it is clear Aldington knew exactly what he was doing. It was premeditated. This was his “escape clause” to hypocritically be able to claim, should anyone find out what he had done, “Well, all they had to do was to press their claim!”
From behind barbed wire? At bayonet point? While being clubbed into submission by rifle butts?
The British Establishment clearly recognized that all of their wartime and post-war policies would one day become open to scrutiny – if Revisionists like Tolstoy would gain broad acceptance. That would have threatened their house of cards. No wonder they came to the rescue of their own disgraceful policies!

Trifkovic: The charges were serious, by British standards quite scandalous in fact, but Aldington was reluctant to sue Tolstoy over the book. He did sue one Nigel Watts instead, however, an obscure property developer who distributed a pamphlet — written by Tolstoy — in which Aldington was called a war criminal. The pamphlet included the following statements:
“As was anticipated by virtually everyone concerned, the overwhelming majority of these defenceless people, who reposed implicit trust in British honour, were either massacred in circumstances of unbelievable horror immediately following their handover, or condemned to a lingering death in Communist gaols and forced labour camps. These operations were achieved by a combination of duplicity and brutality without parallel in British history since the Massacre of Glencoe. . . The man who issued every order and arranged every detail of the lying and brutality which resulted in these massacres was Brigadier Toby Low, Chief of Staff to General Keightley’s 5 Corps, subsequently ennobled by Harold Macmillan as the 1st Baron Aldington . . . The evidence is overwhelming that he arranged the perpetration of a major war crime in the full knowledge that the most barbarous and dishonourable aspects of his operations were throughout disapproved and unauthorised by the higher command, and in the full knowledge that a savage fate awaited those he was repatriating… a major war criminal, whose activities merit comparison with those of the worst butchers of Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia.”

Trifkovic: As the author of the text Tolstoy felt honour-bound to include himself as Watts’ co-defendant.

Trifkovic: His mission in Austria accomplished, Brigadier Low returned to England on some unknown date in May 1945 to be selected as the Conservative MP for Blackpool — the beginning of the slow rise that would see him ennobled (by Macmillan!) and ushered into the boardrooms and elite gentlemen’s clubs of Britain.

Music teacher baronet jailed after ten-year-old pupil he abused breaks 30-year silence

  • Sir Peter Newson-Smith jailed for five-and-a-half years for indecent assault
  • Former pupil John Cartwright gave evidence to finally see justice
  • Incidents occurred at prestigious boarding school Clayesmore Prep, Dorset

A titled music teacher has been jailed for sexually abusing a ten-year-old boy 30 years ago – after the former pupil broke a lifetime’s silence.

Sir Peter Newson-Smith was found guilty of two charges of indecent assault while head of music at a prestigious boarding school, Clayesmore Prep, in Dorset.

He received a five-and-a-half-year sentence after victim John Cartwright flew from his home in Australia to give evidence against him.

A court heard how Newson-Smith, the 3rd Baronet of Totteridge, lured the ‘vulnerable and isolated’ pupil into a cupboard on ten separate occasions, before making him strip naked and molesting him.

Newson-Smith – who was described by his neighbours as a ‘pillar of the community’ – had also denied taking photos of the naked ten-year-old on a polaroid camera in 1981. The 66-year-old retired from the £7,500-a-term school in 2003 after 24 years.

Mr Cartwright, now 40, chose to waive his anonymity to speak to The Mail on Sunday in the hope that other victims of abuse will come forward.

The property developer said: ‘I just feel relief now that he has been jailed. I still don’t know whether I have fully come to terms with what happened to me but at least, for the first time, I have justice.’

Mr Cartwright, who has a eight- year-old daughter, said he decided to make his complaint in 2010 after he ‘thought about how I would react if the same thing were to happen to her’.

‘I never told anyone because it is extremely humiliating and embarrassing. I felt ashamed. It took 30 years for me to be able to say it. It’s not something that’s easy to mention.

‘It always stopped me from trying to do really well at anything because after those experiences, I never wanted to stand out, and that takes a long time to overcome.

‘At the time, I didn’t understand what was happening to me. Even now, I haven’t told my wife everything. But, when I saw how many pastoral awards the school had won, it made me angry, so I emailed the headmaster and told him what I’d gone through.’

Mr Cartwright also revealed how testifying in court was ‘without question the  scariest thing I’ve ever done’.

He added: ‘I don’t think there is anything more harrowing than having to stand up and talk openly about those kinds of experiences.’

Mr Cartwright’s sister Susan Callaway, 40, said: ‘I was also at that school and I understand how this could happen. You didn’t have anybody you could turn to. It is horrific.

‘He had his innocence taken away from him and that’s just not right.’

Sentencing Newson-Smith at Dorchester Crown Court, Judge Roger Jarvis said: ‘There is scarcely a greater breach of trust, when a young boy is entrusted to the care of a  boarding school, and that very considerable trust is abused.’

As the guilty verdict was read out, Newson-Smith’s wife Mary-Ann, with whom he has four children, broke down in tears. ‘It can’t be true,’ she said. ‘What will I tell the children?’

A titled music teacher jailed for sexually abusing a ten-year-old pupil has had his conviction quashed.

Sir Peter Newson-Smith was found guilty last May of two charges of indecent assault while head of music at boarding school Clayesmore Prep, in Dorset, 30 years ago.

But the Court of Appeal has now ruled that the evidence given by his alleged victim, John Cartwright, now in his 40s, was misleading because he failed to disclose he planned to sue Sir Peter and the school for damages.

He would swan in at least once every few weeks, boasting to regulars of his celebrity status. It was like he had the “keys to the city”, one recalls. What seemed at the time like mere celebrity bragging is now known to be much, much worse.

The influence Savile claimed to wield over the police is shocking, but was no secret at the Flying Pizza, where the TV presenter would talk of his “hotline” to officers. “He used to come in here on his own and talk about the Friday meetings,” says Francis, a 63-year-old retired doorman who knew Savile well from the late Sixties onwards.

Speaking for the first time, he says: “He used to take great delight in telling people that if he had any problems, his friends at Millgarth [the former city centre West Yorkshire Police headquarters] would sort it out. He would say: ‘If I think I’ve got a problem, all I’ve got to do is make a phone call.’ ”

Savile’s death on the morning of October 29, 2011, was certified by Prof Alistair Hall, his cardiologist, who had been called to his flat by the concerned caretaker and family members.

Professor Alistair Hall, the award-winning Leeds cardiologist and Jimmy’s close friend, was one of the last to see Jimmy alive. He had called at his flat on the Friday night before he died and unsuccessfully tried to persuade him to go into hospital. Jimmy had said that he wanted to die at home in his own bed. He seemed to know the end was nigh.

Professor Alistair Hall, senior consultant cardiologist at Leeds General Infirmary and St James’s Hospital, said: “I am 100 per cent in agreement that the wonderful Sir Jimmy should be made Freeman of the City. “Despite his fame he still volunteers at the hospital and the list of good work and fundraising he has done is too long to list. “He has supported a lot of cardiology research and helped with The Family Heart Study and toured on the big red bus across the UK. He has helped us to fundraise to buy a special scanner and only recently donated a large amount of money to fund scholarships for junior doctors.” The senior cardiologist, who carried out Sir Jimmy’s quadruple heart bypass operation a decade ago, said the broadcaster and sportsman was an amazing person who fully deserved to be honoured publically. Charities Sir Jimmy has raised more than 40m during his lifetime for various charities, including the Leeds Hospitals. He has run 217 marathons and countless fun runs. Catholic Church bosses in Leeds also backed calls for Sir Jimmy to be honoured. A spokesman for the Diocese of Ripon and Leeds, said: “Over the years Sir Jimmy has done lots of good work for the church. As long as the 1960s while busy being famous, he used to help with collections at the former Sacred Heart church. Mavis Price, Sir Jimmy’s friend and one of his helpers, said: “It is high time Jimmy was made a Freeman. I have written to the council before about it. He does so much.”

Jimmy Savile with friends, Mavis Price and (Professor/cardiologist Mohan Sivananthan?)

May 24, 2009

Running over three pages of A4, the last will and testament of Sir James Wilson Vincent Savile lists 18 individuals he wanted remembered.

They include lifelong friends such as 85-year-old Joseph Barker, whom he met at St Anne’s primary school in Leeds, and Professor Mohan Sivananthan, a hospital cardiologist, whom he met through his charitable works.

Savile was invited to open new offices for the Yorkshire Evening Post and persuaded  Sue to go with him and pose  alongside him wearing a mini skirt and boots.

‘I think he even had his hand up my skirt,’ she says, laughing at the memory.

Final embrace: Sir Jimmy Savile and Sue Hymns' last date at their favourite pizza restaurant, two months before his death at the age of 84

Final embrace: Sir Jimmy Savile and Sue Hymns’ last date at their favourite pizza restaurant, two months before his death at the age of 84

The first meeting between Sue Hymns and Jimmy Savile is recorded faithfully in her diary, dated September 23, 1968.

‘Saw Jimmy Savile at the hospital,’ the entry reads. ‘Met him again at 5.15pm and he gave me a lift to the bus stop in his taxi.’

Back then, Sue was a stunningly pretty 18-year-old on her way to a doctor’s appointment at Leeds General Infirmary, while Savile — thanks to his role as presenter of Top Of The Tops — was Britain’s most famous DJ.

But on the day in question, Savile was doing a shift as a volunteer porter at the city’s hospital

Photographs of her and Jim together over the years adorn the walls: a faded shot of them in a Leeds café, not long after they met; another dressed up together for a Lord Mayor’s banquet.

The final one, at their favourite restaurant, The Flying Pizza in Leeds, was taken just two months before he died.

‘He did his “now then, now then” routine — Jim never said hello — and I tried to think of something to say. I mentioned a friend called Ray whom I knew Jim had taught to DJ, and Jim replied: “Let’s not talk about Ray; let’s talk about you.”’

I was absolutely delighted to hear that Sir Jimmy decided to remember us in his will

Businessman claims he overheard Jimmy Savile seek police officer’s help to avoid sex abuse probe

The company director said pervert Savile asked Mick Starkey to get in touch with Surrey Police but “never said what it was about”

 

 

Savile and his police ‘crony’: Former inspector ‘intervened in sex abuse investigation on DJ’s behalf and acted as his minder’

  • Mick Starkey, 61, drove Savile’s Rolls-Royce and attended the DJ’s ‘Friday Morning Club’
  • He apparently contacted Surrey Police before they interviewed star in 2009
  • IPCC has launched an investigation into the allegations against ex-officer

Did Jimmy Savile fix his interrogation?

Jimmy Savile’s close links with police are coming to light

During the interview, Savile, by then aged 82, stressed his social connections with senior officers in his hometown of Leeds, and indicated that he could call in “favours” from them.

There is some evidence that these were not the mere ramblings of an ageing celebrity. The 44-page report – by Surrey Police into its own failed investigation into sexual abuse at a children’s home in Staines – details how an unnamed inspector in West Yorkshire Police had telephoned Surrey on Savile’s behalf to arrange the interview.

It was a brazen breach of police protocol. Here was a suspected sex offender getting a senior officer to broker a meeting with detectives. It enabled Savile to dictate the terms of his interrogation. The meeting took place not at a police station, but in the altogether cosier surroundings of his home-from-home at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, where he also abused patients.

The so-called “Barden Triangle” is defined as an area around the head of Lower Wharfedale which includes weird places having supposedly supernatural associations such as the reputedly haunted limestone gorge of Troller’s Gill, the strange conical knoll of Elbolton Hill (said to be the “Hill of the Fairies“) and the Dibble’s Bridge (which – along with several similar other old bridges in England – was allegedly built by the Devil).

The area of Barden (including Barden Tower and Barden Bridge) forms the southern apex of the triangle, with Cracoe and the Cracoe Reef Knolls and the top end of Troller’s Gill roughly defining the northern-most edges. [N.B. If you do visit, make sure to look out for this cheeky chappie; he’ll be looking out for you !]

Villages lying within the triangle include Appletreewick, Burnsall, Linton and Grassington.

Mavis, of Leeds, said: “Jimmy was a big and important part of my life. I will always treasure many happy memories of fun times we had while I was in his company.”

neurosurgeon jake timothy and savile.GIF

Jake Timothy, consultant neurosurgeon, , said: “My first meeting with Jimmy Savile was in 1975, I used to ride my bicycle up Princess Avenue near his home and Jimmy was often riding his cycle too. At that time it was Top of the Pops and ‘Clunk-click every trip’ but he was always polite despite his celebrity status. “I didn’t really get to meet him until after my training in London and returning back to Leeds, when Mavis Price introduced me to him again as we were planning to have some surgeons come to LGI to learn about spinal surgery.

“He helped us with OPTIN (Overseas Partnering Training Initiative) currently run by Professor Anne Chamberlain, he was extremely active with LURE (Leeds Undergraduate Research Enterprise) run by Prof Shervanthi Homer-Vanniasinkam, where he donated a significant amount of money to have medical students mentored by consultant clinicians.

“Jim was very fond of Crayke, our little village near Easingwold. Jim lived at Crayke Castle for a while in his youth whilst working as a ‘Bevin Boy’ in the surrounding area

“He used to arrive in one of his Rolls Royce’s, with his friend Mavis Price acting as driver, and would spend several hours looking round the show, handing out trophies to the various winners.

Sir Jimmy spent time at Crayke Castle, near York – which he was later reported to be interested in buying – after the Second World War as part the Lend A Hand On The Land scheme and retained his fondness for the area over the years.

Sir Jimmy’s close friend Saleem Akhtar, who owns the Jinnah restaurant group, welcomed Sir Jimmy to the opening of his restaurant in Cumberland Street, York, earlier this year and said: “I had known him for about 12 years because he lived opposite my restaurant in Roundhay, in Leeds, and I was gobsmacked when such a big name walked in.

“From there, we became good friends. He loved his chicken tikka and he would stay and chat for hours, and from then on, whenever we opened a restaurant, he would come along and entertain people. He rang me to say he was going into hospital, and when I went to see him he said he was fighting fit and would soon be back to normal. I spoke to him a week before his death and he was still saying he wanted to open our new restaurant in Wakefield. I was planning to see him this week, so I am absolutely shocked by his death.

“He was a fantastic person – a true Yorkshireman and a true gentleman. He would never take any money for opening our restaurants and would tell us to give whatever we would have paid him to somebody who needed it. I cannot believe he has gone, and myself and my family will remember him for the rest of our lives.”

At the opening of the unit a year ago, Sir Jimmy presented a personal donation of £50,000 to Leeds Teaching Hospitals. He said: “I hope it makes a lot of people a lot happier and a lot safer.”

James Ian Morrison was born on July 17 1930. His father, the 1st Lord Margadale, was, as John Morrison, the Conservative MP for Salisbury from 1942 to 1964. John Morrison was one of the most influential backbench Tory MPs of his time, as well as one of the most prescient: in 1972 (three years before Mrs Thatcher took over from Edward Heath) he predicted to one of his sons: “Mark my words, Margaret Thatcher will be the next leader of the party.”

John Morrison remained in the House of Commons until 1964, when he was created the 1st Lord Margadale –

it was the last hereditary peerage to be created, until Mrs Thatcher revived the practice in 1983 with viscountcies for George Thomas, the former Speaker, and William Whitelaw (alleged satanist).

Monday 01 September 1997

Sir Jimmy Savile is hoping to take part in a half marathon, just weeks after undergoing heart surgery. The 71-year-old said he felt “terrific” yesterday, after taking part in a charity walk.

Patients and staff from 60 hospitals joined in the first Sir Jimmy Savile Big Mile Walk, in support of the Royal College of Radiologists’s X-appeal at 42 locations across the country.

Sir Jimmy, who underwent a quadruple heart by-pass operation less than three weeks ago, spoke after leading home a group of about 60 walkers in Roundhay Park, Leeds.

Sir Jimmy paid tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales.

“I have known her for 15 years, she was a close friend. “It’s a dreadful thing to happen.” he said.

link


 

A few thoughts on this…

If he was involved in “fixing” Diana’s death, it makes total sense for him to be seen in public, miles away from the scene.
He’d organised for 42 groups of people in different locations across the country, to walk at exactly the same time – on the day one of the most-loved women in the world died. It smacks of dancing on her grave, if he had prior knowledge of the date her death was planned for.

Did he really have a quadruple heart bypass less than three weeks earlier?… Or was he out of the public eye because he was tending to “business”? I don’t believe anything he ever said. He had a penchant for baring his chest, either completely naked or through string vests, for years after 1997. Has anyone ever noticed any scarring?

Finally, his tribute to Diana. It’s odd. It’s more than tad blase: “A dreadful thing to happen”??? That is understatement.

Dr. Roger Bodley is an English medical graduate who came to Tasmania in 1976 and worked there for 6 years before returning to train as a radiologist. Worked in Oxford and Stoke Mandeville Hospital (which includes the National Spinal Injuries Centre, home of The Paralympics) and after retirement from the NHS returned part time to the beautiful NW Coast of Tasmania to work, teach and to build a home on Table Cape. Having come across Hempcrete at the London exhibition “Ecobuild” in 2008 I decided that my house was to be a showcase for this exciting material. The last few years have seen the slow realisation of that idea.

Which trustee was it, I wonder?

Dr Bodley qualified from Oxford in 1973 and shortly after came to Burnie as an RMO where he worked with Donough O’Brien, John Kille, Don McTaggart and Graham Standen amongst others.

He and his wife (Dr Palmer), joined the Wynyard GP practice as trainees and then associates.

It was a discussion with radiologist Paul Huang about a patient led to a curiosity about interventional radiology and his subsequent return to Radiology training in Oxford in 1981. For 25 years until 2009, he was the senior radiologist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, an acute hospital for 500,000 population as well as the home of The National Spinal Injuries Centre.

His special interests include spinal and interventional radiology.

A new independent report found Jimmy Savile abused 63 people connected to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, but one formal complaint was ignored.

It found Savile’s reputation as a “sex pest” was an “open secret” among some staff – but allegations probably did not reach managers. The formal complaint – made in 1977 by a victim’s father – should have been reported to police, it added.

Sylvia Nicol worked for 40 years at the Stoke Mandeville Hospital Trust, she was a trustee and worked for many years as a medical secretary in the spinal unit.

Mrs Nicol said knew Jimmy Savile from the early 1970s, liked him and ‘can’t change her mind’ about him:

“I’m not denying anything took place, it’s not my business to know, I can only know, what I know, can’t I. I can only know that I saw a man that put hours and hours and hours of work into rebuilding a spinal centre, into helping spinal people and other people throughout this country, and I can’t change my mind on that.”

“I can only say that I saw him do good. I can’t be a judge or jury on anything else, can I, and I don’t want to be,” Mrs Nicol added.

 

SN: Well I can only say that I saw him do good. I can’t be a judge or jury on anything else, can I? And I don’t want to be, because I had 40 years working there, a wonderful place to work. None of the sadness that seems to have been going on there was I aware of. I’m just so sad.
BBC: And have you talked to other people who worked at the hospital in those days.
SN: Hundred, dozens.
BBC: Who agree with you?
SN: They never saw anything. And it doesn’t mean to say they’re saying it didn’t happen. Neither am I, but if you don’t see it, if it’s not reported to you… I was in a position in there for two and a half years where anything like that would have been reported to me, but that doesn’t mean to say nothing happened.

BBC: And in all those times that you look back on with such affection and in that relationship that you enjoyed and that lots of other people in the hospital enjoyed with him, never, ever did anyone mention anything amiss?
SN: Absolutely not. Absolutely, categorically, they did not.

Ms Nicol knew the entertainer from the 1970s onwards, described her sadness at the stories of sexual abuse that have emerged.

“It takes away 40 years of very happy, very good memories”.

 

Sylvia Nicol: How can I come to terms when I never saw any sham. You can only know what you’ve seen. I never heard any rumours. I don’t know any one of the staff and patients that I know who heard or saw or it was reported to them that anything untoward happened to them.

Slater and Gordon, which represents 44 former staff and patients who say they were abused by Savile at Stoke Mandeville, said it “beggars belief” that senior staff failed to intervene.

Solicitor Liz Dux said: “The victims are hopeful the review will establish a much greater level of accountability than the previous one did.

Anything less will rightly be seen as a whitewash by those people still suffering from the awful crimes Savile committed all those years ago.”

There has only ever been one woman in his life: his mother Agnes, nicknamed the Duchess, who died in 1973.
He lived with her for her last 16 years and has described the five days he spent alone with her body after her death as the best of his life.
He was first introduced to the Royal Family, he reveals, by Lord Mountbatten. In 1966, Jimmy became the first civilian to be awarded a Royal Marines’ green beret. Mountbatten was comm­and­ant general at the time and realised that Savile could be a useful contact.
“Coming from Lord Louis, who was the favourite uncle of Prince Philip, that was quite something,” he says. “So obviously I hooked up with the Prince – what was good enough for Lord Louis was good enough for him.”

Update: Jan 10 2017

Is this jumbo jet Christmas party with Jimmy Savile – the BA charity project Skyride – the inspiration for Dreamflight?

(There couldn’t have been too many “Christmas jumbo jet parties for children” in 1985 in England)

savile-jumbo-jet-children-1985

Children’s Christmas Party on Board a Jumbo Jet – Jimmy Savile with Partygoers  1985

 

Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce MBE and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways – co-founders Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, former British Airways flight engineer and flight attendant respectively

 

Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

link

Derek Pereira had just helped organise a one-hour flight to give children the chance to experience a plane trip and thought that he could do something much more exciting.

 

Jimmy Savile and Derek Pereira would have likely known each other from Stoke Mandeville:

Mr Pereira had first become involved with the disabled when he volunteered to help at the Stoke Mandeville handicapped games in England in 1983.

link

At a party for the participants (of the one hour flight) he announced that he wanted to take a plane of children to Florida the following year.

The following morning he received offers of support, which led to the start of a mission that gives hundreds of children the chance to fly to Florida, US, and visit Disneyworld, Seaworld, and other places every year.

Determined to make Dreamflight a reality, Mr Pereira approached the then airline chief medical officer who agreed to pass the information on to the BA chairman Sir Colin Marshall, who turned down the idea.

Mr Pereira promised to do the flight with no cost to the airline by raising money.

Sir Colin gave him the go-ahead but there were still major obstacles to overcome, such as finding money for the flight’s tariff of $100,000 (BD37,800).

However, a British Post Office party brought in $2,000 (BD756), followed by a donation of $10,000 (BD3,780) from an investment company and that was the start.

Children chosen for the trip were sick, but they had to be fit enough to travel.

Although Dreamflight was supposed to be a one-off event there was so much support for it that it continued on an annual basis and was registered as a charity, with Mr Pereira as a trustee.

Shortly before his first arrest, Salmon was hailed by Princess Diana for taking 300 ill and disabled children to Disney World in Florida. He was asked to join the inaugural Dreamflight charity trip, co-founded by former British Airways cabin crew member Patricia Pearce in 1987, as chief medical officer. The former doctor said he was phoned by British Airways and asked to pick 300 ‘very sick and handicapped’ children who would benefit from the once-in-a-lifetime experience. Princess Diana waved the flight off from Heathrow Airport, with 298 young children aboard, including one of the girls who later claimed Salmon indecently touched her during a medical appointment.

Update: 

Former wife of Dr Michael Salmon, who sexually abused girls at the Stoke Mandeville hospital where Jimmy Savile raped children, claims she was “shocked” at what her husband had done

6 Feb 2015

Mrs Salmon attended everyday of the first trial. His wife Susie, who has stood by him throughout proceedings, sobbed as he was taken down to the cells.

His wife, to whom he has been married since 1979 (married 37 years as of 2016) claims she didn’t know about his abuse…she had no idea what had happened

Mrs Salmon did not attend the latest trial, but she admitted she went everyday of the first trial ‘because I needed to know exactly what he was being accused of and make up my own mind.’

Mrs Salmon was adamant ‘I was very shocked’ what her then husband had done – and she had no idea what had happened.

ww:

Well that can’t be true –

How could she not know and be “shocked” when she was married to him when he was first jailed and convicted of abusing children in 1990 and remained married to him

Image result for mrs michael susie salmon stoke

What kind of person would stay married to a convicted paedophile??

Salmon’s previous abuse had come to light in 1987 during an audit inquiry in the hospital, when detectives searching his office for evidence of fraudulent activity discovered letters from young female patients and launched a further probe into his behaviour.

He was asked to join the inaugural Dreamflight charity trip, co-founded by former British Airways cabin crew member Patricia Pearce in 1987, as chief medical officer.
He was jailed for 18 months in November 1990 after admitting indecently assaulting three girls as young as 12. 

He served around 18 months in Grendon Underwood Prison and was struck off the medical register, never returning to his profession.

Mrs Salmon was a nursery nurse -at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital 

Michael Salmon lived in Buckland, near Aston Clinton, after his second marriage in 1979 to a nursery nurse working at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital. “My eldest son contacted the BBC and said he would like to go on Jim’ll Fix It,” Salmon explained. “Martin was a bit of a celebrity when he appeared on it.”

Michael Salmon, 81, was convicted of 14 counts carried out at Stoke Mandeville and the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospitals between 1975 and 1989.

Salmon was abusing children when she worked at the Royal Buckinghamshire hospital as a nursery nurse

Salmon was also convicted of raping a girl on two occasions at his home

Residents in his village had long held suspicions, with one neighbour telling the Mail: ‘I thought he was a dirty old man.’


ww:

Also in the article, the repeating of the mantra – that Salmon and Savile were not linked despite:

sav-and-3-docs

Leeds General Infirmary, 1968.
Savile abused victims as soon as he started frequenting Stoke Mandeville in 1968, the report said.
He became a porter at the hospital, having been invited in by a fellow porter who had worked with Savile at Leeds General Infirmary, where the DJ had also abused patients.
Savile’s victims at Stoke Mandeville included an eight-year-old boy, and a girl, also eight, who was raped at least 10 times by Savile when she visited relatives there. One victim was systematically abused in the chapel by Savile, who was often accompanied by another, unnamed man. “Every time I went in that room I just knew he would touch me wherever he wanted to touch me,” she said.

Between 1972 and 1985 nine verbal complaints and one formal report were made about Savile by his victims.

The formal complaint in 1977 came from the father of an 11-year-old girl who was sexually abused by Savile in a treatment room. The girl screamed hysterically, and a senior nurse arrived but told her to be quiet, saying Savile would not do such a dreadful thing and he raised a great deal of money for the hospital.

The incident “was serious and should have led to Savile’s suspension from the hospital and a formal police report being made”, Johnstone said.

This was a serious allegation and should have been investigated fully as it was reported to a hospital manager.”

Politicians, civil servants and NHS managers gave Jimmy Savile free rein to sexually abuse 60 people, including children as young as eight, over two decades at Stoke Mandeville hospital, two damning reports have concluded.

Sir Jimmy Savile:
1965: Records show abuse started at the BBC, at Leeds general infirmary, where Savile was a long-term volunteer porter, and at Stoke Mandeville hospital, where he also volunteered.

Also of note, the msm have referred to his loyal wife with 3 different names –  as Mary, Ann and Susie??

In 1990, the paediatrician was jailed for indecently assaulting three other girls, two aged 13 and one of 17.

He served three years in prison and now lives in retirement with his wife Mary, 70, in a £750,000 cottage in the heart of the New Forest in Hampshire.

Before and after his first paedophile conviction, Michael A. Salmon worked for the BBC

Salmon travel to Zambia in September 1984 with the BBC Natural History Unit.

After Dr Michael Salmon’s paedophile conviction in 1990 he worked for the BBC in 2002

The dull, grey morning of 28th July 2002 saw a rather special attempt to attract Purple Emperors down to the car park. BBC naturalist Chris Packham, accompanied by butterfly expert and author Dr Michael Salmon (who was also Wiltshire’s bug recorder) and that excellent wildlife cameraman Graham Hatherley, arrived to film the Emperor for a TV piece about butterfly collecting. Despite having been advised that activity would be at its peak some two weeks earlier, the team were prevented by Chris Packham’s commitments from an earlier visit. Michael Salmon, who has studied and written about the lives and activities of the great lepidopterists of the past, brought along their recommended equipment for attracting and catching the butterflies, and set it all out in the car park. This ranged from an antique butterfly net to a large white sheet on the ground, mirrors to reflect sunlight into the trees, and fruit, salmon, horse dung and bottles of urine – the latter provoking the following exchange: ‘what do you think of my sample – you are an ex-medical man, Mike’? ‘It tells me you have a very good renal function, Chris’.

  • Two others worked alongside former DJ at Stoke Mandeville hospital

Dr Raymond Brown, who worked as a consultant paediatrician with Salmon, said the doctor would have known Savile because everyone at Stoke Mandeville knew him.

 

June Thornton, a former nurse at the infirmary, said this month Savile molested a brain-damaged young girl who was a patient at the hospital. Thornton was recovering from an operation herself when she said she saw Savile “kissing her neck, running his hands up and down her arms, and then started to molest her”.

And how in the world could Dreamflight be created through Stoke Mandeville by a Stoke paediatrician and two BA-employeed cousins of the Queen’s dressmaker (who both volunteered for Stoke) without Savile having his grimy, perverted hands involved with it?!

Stoke Mandeville Hospital provided paediatric advice and wrote to paediatricians throughout the country to nominate children.  Letters were sent inviting those nominated to come, and asking their parents to sign in loco parentis forms.   

Next the organizers needed to find funding for the lease of a 747.  Derek’s small cottage in the wilds of Buckinghamshire became the command centre for organising large numbers of people to raise the money.  The BBC was approached to make a documentary programme.  Filming started in the cottage to show the ‘organisation’.

PUPILS ‘RAPED’ AT BEA’S SWISS SCHOOL; Girls drugged and assaulted in their dorm.

Scandal, though, was already in the air. Two months earlier, a chemistry teacher left after his homosexual fantasies were published on the internet.

Then came disclosures that three girls had been drugged and sexually assaulted in a dormitory

. .. it emerged that the headmaster, Richard McDonald, was not on a sabbatical but in prison on charges of sex offences against children.

Media stories of debauchery and drinking among the pupils followed swiftly.

It was the Duke of York who was most keen to send his daughters to the British-run Alpine establishment where the fees range from £15,300 to £22,325 a year. He was particularly attracted by the school’s ethos which was based on the philosophy of Kurt Hahn, the founder of the Duke’s own alma mater, Gordonstoun.

2013 Dreamflight co-founder Pat Pearce at Discovery Cove, Orlando, Florida as part of the annual Dreamflight Charity trip to the USA.

Patricia Pearce and Derek Pereira back home at Heathrow

Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce MBE and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways – co-founders Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, former British Airways flight engineer and flight attendant respectively

Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

One by one the 288 children walked or were carried off the British Airways jet into a sea of smiles from a crowd of clowns and well-wishers.

An hour after landing Monday evening at Orlando International Airport, the British youngsters, suffering from incurable diseases, were aboard a caravan of 13 Greyhound buses and preparing for an eagerly awaited three-day tour of Walt Disney World and Sea World.

The unprecedented effort to bring the children to the Central Florida attractions was the brainchild of British Airways flight engineer Derek Pereira and flight attendant Patricia Pearce.

Quote:
Dreamflight is a UK-registered charity that was started in 1987 by its two founders, Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, who were both with British Airways.

Mr Pereira had first become involved with the disabled when he volunteered to help at the Stoke Mandeville handicapped games in England in 1983.

Pat Pearce MBE Biography

my dream flights pat pearce.GIF

Dreamflight co-founder Pat Pearce MBE has led an amazing life, from her days of flying around the world including 2 weeks with HM Queen Elizabeth II, to setting up a one-off trip for 200 children to America – a ‘one-off trip’ that has happened every year for the last 25! As we embark on the 26th Dreamflight trip, the inspirational story of Pat Pearce MBE has been captured in the autobiography ‘My Dream Flights.

link

Patricia Pearce MBE, who joined BOAC (British Airways’ long-haul predecessor) in 1962 – a year before Elizabeth II was crowned – and served The Queen on her scheduled two-week Royal visit to New Zealand, in 1974, said: “The trip ended up lasting almost two months because the Heath government was brought down in the middle of the trip so the Royal couple had to come back to the UK and then fly back out again.

Kitty serenades the children every year as they fly off to Florida, and we’re supposed to assume that Savile and Stoke Mandeville/British Airways/Queen of England’s Dreamflight had nothing to do with each other.

Salmon worked two decades at Stoke,

Savile lived at Stoke;

Jimmy Savile was given a bedroom in a building used to accommodate young medical students

Savile was free to come and go from his own flat on the hospital premises whenever he chose.

Furnished with leather sofas, chandeliers, a bed and a shower, it had its own special front door with a gold letter box and plaque.


Savile was even allowed to continue puffing away on his trademark cigars within the suite after smoking was banned throughout the rest of the hospital.

In 1978, Jimmy Savile described what he got out of the association with the Buckinghamshire hospital. “There are forty wards at Stoke Mandeville… and they are all filled with people; I will be able to do exactly what I feel like doing. If I feel like going on the ladies’ ward and pulling their legs, I can do that. If I want to go the kids’ ward and have a bit of a knock about, I can do that.”

In 2009, two Surrey Police officers interviewed Savile in his private office at the hospital where, secure in his lair and surrounded by the bricks and mortar he considered to be his own, he obfuscated, denied and then issued threats of his own.

Salmon was a child-abusing pediatrician charity organizer for Dreamflight, while Savile, a child-abusing children’s charity organizer, raped children at Stoke;

Two other organisers were cousins to the Queen’s dressmaker, Savile was tight with the Royals.

Queen honours volunteer Yvonne Trueman

Sister of Dreamflight’s Derek Pereira – Yvonne Trueman

The Order of Saint Joachim is pleased to have contributed to Dame Trueman’s charitable projects and offers its warmest congratulations

trueman-and-queen

A LONG-TIME Bahrain resident is to be honoured with an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) for her social work in Bahrain and abroad. Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is expected to present Yvonne Trueman with the award in a ceremony to held at Buckingham Palace, in London, UK, this summer. The Briton has been greatly involved in fund-raising in Bahrain and helping orphans in Belize, for more than 25 years. Mrs Trueman, who has been a resident of Bahrain for more than 25 years, found out she was on the honours list when she received a phone call from the UK.

It is a project she committed herself to more than 10 years ago, following the death of her son Captain Julian Pooley, a helicopter pilot in the British Army.

It was only after his death in a road accident while stationed in Belize in 1994 that she learned how much he had been doing for the children of an orphanage in Belize City, so she decided to carry on for him.

Wildtracks is a volunteer, non-profit organisation located on the north-eastern coast of Belize, which focuses on conservation and environmental education. Mrs Trueman’s fund-raising not only helps support the orphans at the Dorothy Menzies Child Care Home, but also to send some of the children for weekends at Wildtracks.

Mrs Trueman was already a veteran charity worker long before getting involved with the Belize orphanage, having started running to raise funds for the Muharraq Geriatric Hospital 20 years ago.

Thousands of dinars were raised over the course of the many kilometres she covered in four London marathons, two New York marathons and half a dozen local half marathons.

Mrs Trueman’s charity work also includes her involvement in the Dreamflight project, which takes seriously ill children on a 10-day journey-of-a-lifetime in Disney World, Orlando, Florida, US.

She has been Dreamflight Bahrain’s chief fund-raiser for the last five years, but has been involved in Dreamflight since her brother Derek Pereira founded it in 1986.

Every year, since 2001, Bahrain has been able to send two children on Dreamflight as ambassadors of the kingdom, joining hundreds of other seriously ill youngsters from the UK and Hong Kong on the holiday, which is supported by British Airways.

Mrs Trueman is also a pilot, who is encouraging flight training among nationals and residents of the Gulf states. She earned her private pilot’s licence following months of training in the UK more than 30 years ago.

Subsequently, she joined the family aviation business and travelled the world engaged in sales and marketing.

She also compiled several flight guides for private pilots and worked as a correspondent in Switzerland.

Finally, she worked as an aircraft broker (selling aircraft to the uninitiated), and it was in this capacity that she first came to Bahrain in the late 70s.

Bahrain resident Yvonne Trueman, who along with her brother Dreamflight founder Derek Pereira helped make Dreamflight Bahrain a reality in 2001, is getting ready to auction off her Ready Steady Cook signed apron.

Ms Trueman and her daughter, Katharine Pooley, are to appear in the popular television show Ready Steady Cook on BBC TV next Wednesday.

Her daughter – Katharine Pooley – interior designer to the super-rich

…she has designed everything from cottages to castles — one of which, Forter Castle in Scotland, she owns. Currently giving another castle a makeover for a client in Buckinghamshire

She comes from a family that relishes a challenge. Her father, Robert, has just received the MBE for services to aviation. He created a flight equipment company in 1957 after serving in the RAF, and it was he who bought then-derelict Forter Castle in Perthshire in 1990. The 1560s wreck is now a glamorous holiday let, having been passed on to his daughter who has filled it with Scottish charm.

Today, Pooley, owner of a high-end homewares boutique in Walton Street, SW3, and with a 40-strong design company, is at her Chelsea home to chat. However, she pounces on the phone and starts quick-fire bidding on lots in  Sotheby’s Duchess of Devonshire antiques sale to use in forthcoming projects for wealthy owners who want something with grand connections.

Katharine now has her own shop on London’s Walton Street and counted Mohamed Al Fayed, the owner of Harrods, as one of her first clients. Visitors to her shop now include many stars, including Elizabeth Hurley and Ivana Trump, and she has won two Decorex awards and an Andrew Martin award for interior design. Katharine works with her husband, Dan Voyce, has a staff of 20 and works on properties around the world.

Our member Dame Yvonne Trueman MBE, DJ,
FRaeS, FRIN, a Bahrain-based aviation pioneer, has
been awarded the prestigious Fellowship of the
Royal Institute of Navigators at a special ceremony
in London. Dame Trueman received her award from
the HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh at the
Royal Geographical Society’s auditorium in
Kensington
.

The award was made In recognition of her lifetime
devoted to general aviation as a cartographer, author
and pilot, and her active promotion of private flying
in the Middle East
. Dame Trueman is also active in
Bahrain charitable work and known for her role in
the Bahrain Dreamflight Project

Yvonne also served as a co-pilot during the Iran/Iraq war ferrying passengers out of Baghdad to Kuwait.

Hailing from Hatfield in England, she belongs to a family of dedicated charity workers. Between her and her two brothers, they have run over 50 marathons for good causes.

Personally, Yvonne has run four London and two New York marathons along with a number in Bahrain.

Yvonne’s first landing in Bahrain was almost 30 years ago when she came here with her husband, Dr Arthur Trueman.

She said: “He was the Chief Medical Officer at ALBA for 10 years until his death in 1987. He was very well-known in Bahrain – in those days Alba Medical Centre also looked after Gulf Air, British Airways and other major companies in Bahrain, it was a large practice with three major clinics for all the staff and their families.

“When my husband died, I decided to stay on for two years, but have been here since.”

Gulf Weekly – June 6 – 12, 2007
Bahrain’s superwoman


Lillian Burfield seated

A SPECIAL toast to the Queen will be raised in Bahrain today, as she celebrates her 80th birthday. For Bahrain resident Yvonne Trueman has a personal insight into the woman who has worn the crown for 53 years. For over 40 years, the Queen’s wardrobe has been designed by English couture house Hardie Amies, of Saville Row.

The mainstay of Hardie Amies was ‘Miss Lillian’, who has dressed and made many of the Queen’s clothes over the decades.

‘Miss Lillian’ is her professional name, but to Mrs Trueman, she is simply cousin Joyce.

There is another ‘royal’ link to Bahrain – for Joyce made the dress which the Queen wore when she met the late Amir HH Shaikh Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa, in 1979.

Four years ago, Joyce, whose family name is Burfield, visited Bahrain to give a talk to the American Woman’s Association.

Two years ago Joyce was awarded a Royal Victorian Order (RVO), which is given in recognition of loyal services to the royal family.

Last year, the family was again honoured when Yvonne was made a member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) by the Queen, in recognition of her work for charity here and abroad.

She received the award from the Queen in a Buckingham Palace ceremony last June.

“It was one of the most exciting things that has ever happened to me, I was thrilled,” she said.

Now retired and enjoying doing voluntary work, Joyce looks back fondly on her many visits to fit dresses for the Queen.

“I’ve visited all the royal homes, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral, I have seen them all,” she said.

Stoke-Mandeville Hospital  Paedophile Ring

Multiple doctors accused of child rape were working at Stoke Mandeville, alongside Sir Jimmy Savile – who said “I own this hospital”

Bruce Bailey has been accused of raping a girl when she was 11 as she waited to have an operation

Former surgeon, Dr Bruce Bailey, at Stoke Mandeville hospital, accused of sexually abusing four-year-old girl while reading her bedtime stories

Bruce Bailey worked at world-renowned Stoke Mandeville Hospital

He is also accused of raping girl when she was 11 as she waited for her operation

Bailey, who died in 2001, is believed to have known paedophile Savile

He is second doctor at Bucks hospital accused of abusing patients

The alleged victim – who says she was also indecently assaulted by Savile – claims a junior doctor saw Bailey indecently touching her but nothing was done.

She is being represented by abuse lawyer Liz Dux, of Slater & Gordon, who is also working on behalf of 72 of the late Jim’ll Fix It star’s victims.

Ms Dux said: “My client’s horrific ­experiences show why a reform to the law to introduce mandatory reporting of abuse by those in regulated activities is so vital.”

And yet another paedophile doctor at Stoke-Mandeville where Savile had free rein.

Angry Judge Jails Pervert Doctor of Stoke Mandeville

Angry Judge Jails Pervert Doctor of Stoke Mandeville

A DOCTOR at Stoke Mandeville Hospital blindfolded and sexually assaulted a 12-year-old boy patient.

John Narendran, 56, was jailed for 21 months after Judge John Murchie refused to wait for pre-sentence reports saying the doctor had shown no remorse.

`This is an offence which is so serious that members of the public would not feel justice had been done if a judge did not pass an immediate custodial sentence,’ he said. `Doctors are trusted with the bodies of people. This was a bad breach of trust.’

The boy was injured playing football, Reading Crown Court heard. He was taken to the hospital near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, which is world-renowned for its treatment of spinal injuries.

One of the doctors who examined him was Sri Lankan-born Narendran, who introduced himself as Dr John, said Mr Simon Davis, prosecuting.

`Dr John’ told the boy’s parents he wanted to help their son and they should not tell anyone, as it was a case for `specialist treatment’.

The next day, another consultant said the boy could leave hospital, but `Dr John’ took the youngster and his parents to his own private room. `He rubbed cream into the boy’s back while his parents were waiting in an adjoining room,’ Mr Davis said. `Nothing untoward happened.’

The day after, however, Narendran contacted the parents, who took their son back. While they waited next door as before, he showed the boy a medical book with pictures of male and female genitalia.

The boy was asked to lie on the bed, blindfolded with a scarf and assaulted. He was upset and told his parents, and Narendran was arrested.

The boy broke down in tears several times while giving evidence through a video-link to court. He told the jury: `The doctor told me I could trust him and he would never hurt me.’

Narendran, a married man, of North Road, Alfriston, East Sussex, had denied indecent assault.

Andrew Cohen, defending, said the offence was `entirely out of character and can only be described as a moment of complete madness’. He said Narendran was a `very highly regarded’ man of `mature years’ who had fallen `as low as he can get’.

STOKE MANDEVILLE – DR ROGER BODLEYFor 25 years until 2009, he was the senior radiologist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital

The Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust is primarily based in the Leeds area, although not all of its trustees – listed as Luke Lucas, Dr Roger Bodley and Lady Gabrielle Greenbury on the Charity Commission’s website – still live there.

About Dr Roger Nicholas Bodley of Stoke Mandeville
Image result for dr roger bodley

Dr Roger Nicholas Bodley was born in 1947 and the first directorship we have on file was in 1991 at Stoke Mandeville Hospital Education Centre Limited. Them most recent directorship was with Stoke Mandeville Hospital Education Centre Limited where they held the position of “Radiologist”. This company has been around since 12 Apr 1972 .

RBodley
Dr. Roger Bodley is an English medical graduate who came to Tasmania in 1976 and worked there for 6 years before returning to train as a radiologist. Worked in Oxford and Stoke Mandeville Hospital (which includes the National Spinal Injuries Centre, home of The Paralympics) and after retirement from the NHS returned part time to the beautiful NW Coast of Tasmania to work, teach and to build a home on Table Cape. Having come across Hempcrete at the London exhibition “Ecobuild” in 2008 I decided that my house was to be a showcase for this exciting material. The last few years have seen the slow realisation of that idea.

3.21 DC1 and DS6 interviewed Savile on tape under caution at his private office at Stoke Mandeville Hospital on 1st October 2009. Present with Savile was a ‘friend’ who was a trustee of the Jimmy Savile Stoke Mandeville Charitable Trust. It is not clear in what capacity this male was present as there is no indication that Savile required an appropriate adult and he was not acting as a legal representative.

http://www.surrey.police.uk/Portals/…11.01.2013.pdf

The Trustees at that time were

James Collier CB We are lucky to have the experience of this
gentleman. A working life as a very senior civil servant,
starting off in the Treasury, worked for eleven Chancellors
before being transferred to the NHS as a financial trouble
shooter.

Luke Lucas A self-made millionaire in the security industry
with several confidential contracts with the Home Office. The
youngest of the Trustees, spends regular days and nights at the
NSIC and is totally dedicated to its work. Hoping to retire from
business and looking forward to staying completely involved
with the Trust.

Dr Roger Bodley Is one of the world’s leading Radiologists,
lecturing as far a field as Australia, New Zealand and all the
Americas. He also holds a very senior position in Diagnostic
Radiology at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

How come then that Jo Summers,Solicitor for Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust, said in a BBC story on October 23 2012

‘……..the charity’s trustees had been left “personally shocked” by the sex abuse scandal, stressing they had absolutely no idea of the alleged crimes now coming to light. They knew Jimmy for many years, volunteered to be his charity trustees. They can’t recognise the person they are reading about in the papers,”

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-20001588

Which trustee was it, I wonder?

Dr Roger Bodley MA, BM BCh, FRACGP, FRCR, FRANZCR

Dr Bodley qualified from Oxford in 1973 and shortly after came to Burnie as an RMO where he worked with Donough O’Brien, John Kille, Don McTaggart and Graham Standen amongst others.

He and his wife (Dr Palmer), joined the Wynyard GP practice as trainees and then associates.

It was a discussion with radiologist Paul Huang about a patient led to a curiosity about interventional radiology and his subsequent return to Radiology training in Oxford in 1981. For 25 years until 2009, he was the senior radiologist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, an acute hospital for 500,000 population as well as the home of The National Spinal Injuries Centre.

His special interests include spinal and interventional radiology.

MISC:

A younger Salmon had focussed on a career in medicine, first coming to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, the site of many of the allegations made against him, in 1961, for a paediatric secondment, lasting six months. His medical career had then taken him to hospitals in Middlesex, London, and Ibadan, Nigeria, before he had taken up a senior registrar position in Lincoln, Lincolnshire. Salmon worked as a locum consultant in Maidestone, Gravesend and Dartford, before being headhunted for a top position in developmental medicine in Oxford.


 

In 1969 the doctor, now specialising in children’s growth disorders and neurological problems, such as migraines, returned to Stoke Mandeville where serial pervert Savile targeted patients for sex attacks during his time as a fundraiser there.

Salmon’s son had appeared on Savile’s Jim’ll Fix it programme.

One of his patients and alleged victims recalled seeing a picture from Jim’ll Fix It hanging on Salmon’s consulting room wall. The black and white photograph, shown to the jury, showed a young boy holding a microphone from when Salmon’s eldest son Martin had appeared on the popular television show alongside Irish horse racing commentator Peter O’Sullivan.

My eldest son contacted the BBC and said he would like to go on Jim’ll Fix It,” Salmon explained. “Martin was a bit of a celebrity when he appeared on it.” Salmon’s son, the eldest of two, changed his surname, moved out of the family home and cut ties with his father following his previous conviction for child sex assaults. In 1969 Salmon had set up the developmental assessment unit at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital, only the fourth such unit in the country at the time. He was also instrumental in the building of a special care baby unit at the hospital and helped to raise between £50,000 and £70,000 for much needed equipment for the hospital’s paediatric unit.

Salmon worked at Stoke Mandeville until the late 1980s, when he was convicted for sexually abusing youngsters and subsequently jailed in 1990.

Before this, his special interest and work in the field of migraine led to him being appointed as a consultant paediatrician of the British Migraine Association in London, and he was the first doctor in the country to run trials of a pioneering preventative medicine.

Salmon authored 38 scientific papers and a text book used by doctors, chaired the World Paediatric Congress held in 1986 and served on a number of professional bodies, including the Royal College of Physicians.

Shortly before his first arrest, Salmon was hailed by Princess Diana for taking 300 ill and disabled children to Disney World in Florida.

dreamflight-auto-bio-history-salmon

He was asked to join the inaugural Dreamflight charity trip, co-founded by former British Airways cabin crew member Patricia Pearce in 1987, as chief medical officer. The former doctor said he was phoned by British Airways and asked to pick 300 ‘very sick and handicapped’ children who would benefit from the once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Princess Diana waved the flight off from Heathrow Airport, with 298 young children aboard, including one of the girls who later claimed Salmon indecently touched her during a medical appointment. The former doctor said she had been suffering from depression after a bout of glandular fever and he thought the trip would lift her spirits.

“He arranged a special trip to Disney World.Bruce Bailey was the best five days of my life, I will never forget it.” The charity has since taken more than 5,000 children abroad on its holidays. On release from prison, Salmon lived at Woodgreen in the New Forest area of Hampshire with his wife Susie, pursuing his interests in butterflies and photography. More recently the couple set up home in Park Lane, Salisbury, before he was once more charged with sexually abusing youngsters. His wife has stood by him, supporting him each day in court during his five-week trial.

Salmon was congratulated by Princess Diana for his work on a Dreamflight charity trip, which took 300 ill children to Disney World in Florida.

Dreamflight is a registered UK charity that changes young lives through taking seriously ill and disabled children, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida. The first Dreamflight trip was in November 1987


Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways. Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take &underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

link

Pereira had just helped organise a one-hour flight to give children the chance to experience a plane trip and thought that he could do something much more exciting.

At a party for the participants he announced that he wanted to take a plane of children to Florida the following year.

The following morning he received offers of support, which led to the start of a mission that gives hundreds of children the chance to fly to Florida, US, and visit Disneyworld, Seaworld, and other places every year.

Determined to make Dreamflight a reality, Mr Pereira approached the then airline chief medical officer who agreed to pass the information on to the BA chairman Sir Colin Marshall, who turned down the idea.

Mr Pereira promised to do the flight with no cost to the airline by raising money.

Sir Colin gave him the go-ahead but there were still major obstacles to overcome, such as finding money for the flight’s tariff of $100,000 (BD37,800).

However, a British Post Office party brought in $2,000 (BD756), followed by a donation of $10,000 (BD3,780) from an investment company and that was the start.

Children chosen for the trip were sick, but they had to be fit enough to travel.

Although Dreamflight was supposed to be a one-off event there was so much support for it that it continued on an annual basis and was registered as a charity, with Mr Pereira as a trustee.

 Stoke Mandeville Hospital Our history

The National Spinal Injuries Centre (NSIC) is the oldest, and one of the largest  spinal injuries centres in the world. It was founded by neurologist Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, in 1944 to treat servicemen who had sustained spinal cord injuries in World War II.

Ludwig Guttmann

Before this, the majority of people with spinal cord injury died from complications within a year of injury. In 1948, Professor Guttmann began using sport as a vital ingredient in rehabilitation programmes and on 29 July organised a competition for 16 paralysed men and women to coincide with the opening ceremony of the 1948 Olympic Games in London.

The Stoke Mandeville Games for wheelchair athletes began and was widely seen as the moment that the Paralympic movement was born.

Professor Guttman received a knighthood in recognition of his contribution to the Paralympics and the ground-breaking techniques in rehabilitation he introduced, and staff continue Dr Guttmann’s revolutionary work to this day.

The experience gained in treating and preventing complications, together with an increase in injuries caused by road traffic accidents, led to a rapid expansion of the centre from an initial 26 beds to 190 beds in the main part of the hospital.

Jimmy opening unit

In 1980, severe weather conditions caused structural damage to some of the wards at Stoke Mandeville which housed the centre. With the area health authority unable to meet the estimated repair bill, the centre’s future looked in doubt. The implications would have been inconceivable – patients faced the prospect of receiving care in non-specialist hospitals without the welath of expertise and knowledge built up at the NSIC over the years.

Sir Jimmy Savile, at this time working as a volunteer porter at the hospital, set about organising an ambitious fundraising campaign to create a purpose built spinal cord injuries centre. Within three years of the launch, and with the generosity of the public behind him, Sir Jimmy had raised an incredible £10m. The new facilities opened in 1983, and Sir Jimmy, now the NSIC’s patron, continues to take an active interest in the centre.

Further allegations about what British Airways knew about the alleged crimes of pilot Simon Wood surface in BBC report

20 March 2015

The law firm acting on behalf of alleged child abuse victims of a British Airways pilot, Simon Wood, has confirmed that they are looking into reports that the airline had been told twice about concerns about his behaviour in Kenya.

According to the BBC, Mike Johnson, another BA pilot who was on the British board of Nairobi-based charity, Nyumbani, informed two senior managers at BA in 2004 that Wood had been asked to leave the charity for taking inappropriate images of children.

In 2008 the mother of an 11-year-old girl, who claimed she had been raped at his hotel, sent an email to a member of BA staff involved in charity work in Kenya.

The email reads: “Parents are complaining…that Mr Simon is using their daughters to satisfy his sexual desires”. “…whenever Mr Simon is in Nairobi he takes them to the hotel where he stays”.

However BA appeared to take no action against Wood, allowing him to allegedly abuse children in several African countries.

First Officer Simon Wood, from Hertfordshire, committed suicide in 2013 after he was charged with indecent assault and making and possessing indecent photographs of a child.

It is alleged that Wood molested over 30 children during stopovers in Kenya and Uganda between 2001 and 2013 whilst flying for British Airways.

Nichola Marshall, head of the international abuse team at Leigh Day, who is acting for 35 alleged victims, claims that BA had a duty of care toward the children allegedly abused in the African countries he visited whilst flying for the airline.

She added that these latest allegations could strengthen the legal case against BA.

The alleged victims are currently aged between 6 and 24 years of age, and were allegedly abused in African schools and orphanages over a number of years by Wood.

The allegations range from molestation to rape. Wood was struck by a train near Potters Bar station on August 18 2013. An inquest into his death in July 2014 recorded a verdict of suicide at Hertfordshire Coroner’s Court in July 2014.

Nichola Marshall from the international claims team at Leigh Day said: “We allege that British Airways had a duty of care toward these children in the schools and orphanages, that Wood was involved in through the airline’s charitable work, and through his respected position as a British Airways pilot.

“We are looking into the allegations that BA were told on two occasions that one of their pilots could be a danger to children but continued to allow and even encourage him to volunteer in projects they supported, even giving him awards for his charity work.

“If correct, these reports strengthen our case against British Airways and we want them to tell us exactly what they knew and when they were aware of the activities of Mr Wood and what they did about it.”

Bharti Patel, CEO of ECPAT UK, a child rights charity campaigning for the rights of children everywhere to be protected from abuse by British nationals travelling or residing abroad, today said the apparent lack of action by BA looked like a serious breach.

She commented “If British Airways were informed of Simon Wood’s alleged abuse of children, they had a duty to act with due diligence and intervene to remove Simon Wood from his role and investigate the complaints of abuse against him.

“Any error of judgement in this due diligence process is a serious breach when it comes to protection of children. Child abuse is a serious crime and a violation of children’s rights. It can leave children traumatised for long periods.

“Access to remedy and appropriate compensation is essential to help children begin the process of recovery and rehabilitation.”

BA said it cannot comment while legal proceedings continue, but has released a statement. “We were shocked and horrified to hear the allegations against Simon Wood and our sympathies are with the victims. “These allegations have been raised in the context of litigation which will be robustly defended.”

Paedophile pilot’s victims to get cash payouts from British Airways:

  • British Airways agreed to pay damages to 38 victims of paedophile pilot 
  • First Officer Simon Wood, 54, molested young girls during overseas trips 
  • Mail revealed he groomed victims with BA-branded toys, colouring books
  • Wood was eventually charged with separate child sex offences in the UK

Bartle Frere, ex-BA pilot, jailed for child sex abuse

  • 17 June 2015

A paedophile who carried out child sex crimes during stopovers while working as a British Airways pilot has been jailed for 12 years and six months.

Bartle Frere, of Shipton Gorge, Dorset, was convicted of 16 sex offences, including sexual assault, following a retrial at Bournemouth Crown Court.

Frere was found guilty of arranging the sexual abuse of a child in India at an earlier trial in October 2014.

He was arrested as he got off a flight at Heathrow Airport in November 2013.

A total of 25 charges against the 51-year-old, which also included making indecent images, dated back to 2001.

DVDs and Viagra

The Crown sought a retrial on 16 counts the jury at his first trial failed to reach verdicts on.

During the retrial, the court heard police had searched Frere’s home, near Bridport, the day before his arrest and seized DVDs of underage boys wrestling naked, as well as boy’s underwear and Viagra.

The jury also heard details of Frere’s stopovers in India while he was working for BA.

He befriended youngsters in one fishing village near Chennai, handing out gifts including mobile phones.

The court was also told Frere searched the internet on his phone to find out “where to pick up underage boys in Bangkok”.

‘Terrible crimes’

Frere, who no longer works for BA, told the court he liked to help boys purely to encourage them and see them develop.

After sentencing, Det Sgt Dave Wise, of Dorset Police’s child abuse investigations team, described Frere’s actions as “terrible crimes”.

“Frere targeted vulnerable children to exploit them for his own purpose and we hope that the lengthy sentence brings some closure to them and goes some way to repairing the harm he has caused to his victims and their families.”

He also thanked British Airways for its co-operation.

A spokesman for BA said the firm “took the allegations very seriously and co-operated with the police throughout their investigation”.

Wessex Crown Prosecution Service thanked those who gave evidence.

“Their courage and determination has contributed greatly to the successful prosecution of someone who poses a very significant risk to young boys.”

An official video made by Frere for a leading prep school in the South-East is accompanied by the BA theme tune – Sous le Dome Epais (Flower Duet).

Frere, who was educated at £10,830 a term Westminster School, whose alumni include Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, was arrested

Frere, whose unusual Christian name is a diminutive of Bartholomew, is from a family with an impressive pedigree and history which saw noticeable service in the empire in war and peace.

He is directly related to Sir Henry Bartle Edward Frere (1815 – 1884) who was created a Baronet in 1876 after a long and distinguished career in the Indian Civil Service.

In 1872 he had negotiated the abolition of the slave trade with the Sultan of Zanzibar. In 1877 he was appointed to be the Governor of the Cape Province, South Africa to implement the policy of confederation.

However, his approach in refusing to speak to the native chiefs provoked a war with the Zulu tribes, the first battle of which in 1879 ended in a disastrous defeat for the British army.

Despite eventually winning the trust of the Boer element of the proposed confederation he was recalled to London in 1880 and censured for reckless conduct.

Another wealthy ancestor, George Frere (1774-1854), inherited Twyford House, a Queen Anne mansion in Thorley, near Bishop’s Stortford, in Herts, and was founder and president of the Law Society.

Frere’s sister Sarah Frere, 51, refused to comment at her home in Sheringham, Norfolk.

She said: ‘I am not saying anything. If anything has happened, it will cause immense distress and I am not saying any more.’

Quote:
Three hundred terminally ill children experienced the trip of a lifetime last year, thanks to British Airways and the Rotary Club of London, England. Designated “Dreamflight,” the trip was highlighted by a visit to mega-amusement parks Disney World and SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida, U.S.A. While British Airways provided the air transportation, the London club paid the Florida hotel accommodations for all participants, including 70 medical personnel. For the children, it was perhaps a last dream, but one come true.

Savile’s death on the morning of October 29, 2011, was certified by Prof Alistair Hall, his cardiologist, who had been called to his flat by the concerned caretaker and family members.

Professor Alistair Hall, the award-winning Leeds cardiologist and Jimmy’s close friend, was one of the last to see Jimmy alive. He had called at his flat on the Friday night before he died and unsuccessfully tried to persuade him to go into hospital. Jimmy had said that he wanted to die at home in his own bed. He seemed to know the end was nigh.

Jimmy Savile’s close links with police are coming to light

During the interview, Savile, by then aged 82, stressed his social connections with senior officers in his hometown of Leeds, and indicated that he could call in “favours” from them.

There is some evidence that these were not the mere ramblings of an ageing celebrity. The 44-page report – by Surrey Police into its own failed investigation into sexual abuse at a children’s home in Staines – details how an unnamed inspector in West Yorkshire Police had telephoned Surrey on Savile’s behalf to arrange the interview.

It was a brazen breach of police protocol. Here was a suspected sex offender getting a senior officer to broker a meeting with detectives. It enabled Savile to dictate the terms of his interrogation. The meeting took place not at a police station, but in the altogether cosier surroundings of his home-from-home at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, where he also abused patients.

Bruce Bailey Fellowship

Mr. Bruce Bailey, Retired Senior Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, United Kingdom passed away in April 2001. He was responsible for training many Plastic Surgeons from India including Dr S Raja Sabapathy. He opened the windows of opportunities for many young surgeons from our country. In the memory of this great man “Bruce Bailey Traveling Fellowship” was set up by Ganga Hospital. Bruce visited India many times and loved it. It is felt that setting up a Fellowship to enable a British Trainee visit our unit for a period of 6 to 8 weeks is a good way to keep the memory of the great man alive. It surely will build bridges between the two countries to mutual advantage. The Fellowship is recognized and announced in the newsletters of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons and the British Society for Surgery of the Hand for the information of the interested candidates.

Dream holiday for special children

By REBECCA TORR
FOR the past 10 years Dreamflight Bahrain has annually given two sick Bahraini children the holiday of a lifetime to the UK and US.

The two children chosen are usually from underprivileged backgrounds who would never have the opportunity to enjoy such an experience.

Hassan Ahmed, 13, and Ali Ebrahim, 10, are the latest two to benefit from the British charity Dreamflight’s unique trip.

Nomination

The holiday includes two days in London and 10 days in Florida where they visit Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios, Sea World and other attractions.

Bahraini children are nominated for the trip by doctors at the Salmaniya Medical Complex (SMC) and then a panel of medical experts in the UK narrows them down to two.

The two children chosen from Bahrain join 190 other seriously ill children, aged between eight and 14, from the UK, Chernobyl, Ukraine, and Hong Kong.

“I am so excited to visit these two cities as I have never been there before,” Ali told the GDN prior to travelling.

“I want to try all the rides in Disneyland.”

His partner on the trip Hassan cheerfully revealed he planned to visit every part of Disneyland and watch the many parades there.

“I feel so excited and lucky to be chosen for this trip,” he said.

The Bahraini children are accompanied throughout the trip by an escort and once in the US the 192 children are split into 12 groups of 16 children.

The groups are named after a children’s character and the Bahraini children are usually in the Donald Duck group.

Each group is accompanied by eight escorts, as well as a group leader, paediatric doctor, a senior nurse, two nurses, a physiotherapist and two non-medical helpers.

There are also extra escorts on hand to help. The aim is to have one escort for every child.

To prepare them for the trip the children are given free English lessons from Berlitz Language Centre and taken for shopping to buy new clothes and other items.

Speedy Motors provides free transport to them during preparations for the trip and to the airport and Batelco gives the children mobile phones so they can keep in touch with their families while they are away.

Awesome

The first two children to participate in Dreamflight in 2001 were Fatima Mohammed Hassan and Zainab Rasool Al Awani, who were 13-year-old back then.

“I loved the whole thing, it was awesome,” said Fatima, years after returning from the trip.

“I had a wonderful time in Florida and London.

“I loved the Magic Kingdom the most, the rides were awesome.

“I am back in school and I am telling all my friends about my holiday and they’re very happy for me.”

Fatima proudly announced at the time that she had made a total of 60 friends during her trip.

“Ask me all their names, I know them all by heart,” she said.

“I am writing to them all and I can’t wait to hear from them.”

Dreamflight is a UK-registered charity that was started in 1987 by its two founders, Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, who were both with British Airways.

Mr Pereira had first become involved with the disabled when he volunteered to help at the Stoke Mandeville handicapped games in England in 1983.

It was three years later that the former British Airways flight engineer came up with the idea of the “Dreamflight”, but at the time he thought it could never be more than a fantasy.

He had just helped organise a one-hour flight to give children the chance to experience a plane trip and thought that he could do something much more exciting.

At a party for the participants he announced that he wanted to take a plane of children to Florida the following year.

The following morning he received offers of support, which led to the start of a mission that gives hundreds of children the chance to fly to Florida, US, and visit Disneyworld, Seaworld, and other places every year.

Determined to make Dreamflight a reality, Mr Pereira approached the then airline chief medical officer who agreed to pass the information on to the BA chairman Sir Colin Marshall, who turned down the idea.

Mr Pereira promised to do the flight with no cost to the airline by raising money.

Sir Colin gave him the go-ahead but there were still major obstacles to overcome, such as finding money for the flight’s tariff of $100,000 (BD37,800).

However, a British Post Office party brought in $2,000 (BD756), followed by a donation of $10,000 (BD3,780) from an investment company and that was the start.

Children chosen for the trip were sick, but they had to be fit enough to travel.

Although Dreamflight was supposed to be a one-off event there was so much support for it that it continued on an annual basis and was registered as a charity, with Mr Pereira as a trustee.

The charity is normally only open to sick children from the UK, but Dreamflight was brought to Bahrain 10 years ago by Mr Pereira and his Bahrain-based sister Yvonne Trueman.

It was initially meant to be a one-time arrangement, but with the support of British Airways, the British Embassy and the local community, Bahrain has been able to secure two places a year since then.

“When my brother Derek came to Bahrain in 2000 we discussed how to bring this wonderful opportunity to sick children in Bahrain,” Ms Trueman told the GDN.

“We talked with Jane Bishop who was then country manager at British Airways.

“She and her fellow colleagues formed a team and launched Dreamflight Bahrain.

“The first Bahraini children chosen for Dreamflight were Zainab Rasool and Fatima Mohammed Hasan, who were both aged 13 at the time.

“Since then Bahrain has been fortunate enough to have secured two places each year to join up with the other children in London.

“Bahrain, Hong Kong and Ukraine are only the other countries to have this opportunity.”

Ms Trueman said Dreamflight was a trip of a lifetime for sick children who would not otherwise have the chance of such an experience.

“It’s an opportunity given to a special child, one who has a terminal illness or a condition that could shorten their life,” she said.

“For example children with sickle cell may have a certain life span and this is an opportunity of a lifetime that these children will remember forever.

“A sick child doesn’t know what tomorrow will bring, so this really is a holiday of a lifetime in their lifetime.”

Former GDN reporter Eunice Del Rosario, who was a Dreamflight escort for Bahraini girls Mariam Hassan and Ruqaya Mohammed in 2006, said she felt honoured to accompany the children on the trip that gave them a once in a lifetime opportunity.

She said the Bahraini children who have gone on to enjoy their dream holidays have not only represented Bahrain well, but also the rest of the Arab world.

“They all served as wonderful ambassadors, especially when Dreamflight first accepted Bahraini children into its programme in 2001 – a time when the world was at a very tumultuous time,” she said.

“When I met the first two Bahraini girls who went on the holiday in 2001, the first word they uttered upon their return was ‘awesome’.

“After working with Dreamflight for seven years, I know more than ever that we can all learn a lot from children.

“To them, there is no such thing as the colour of your skin, the language you speak, your medical condition or your handicap. They all are passionate about life.

“I am sure Dreamflight Bahrain will continue its great success and I look forward to volunteering some more here in the US in the near future.

“I am happy that I was part of something that touched the lives of many.”

Dreamflight in Bahrain is co-ordinated by Debbie Beedie and finance co-ordinator Maha Al Abbas.

Ms Al Abbas has been involved since the very beginning and co-ordinates with Salmaniya Medical Complex officials, the parents and children.

She said working with Dreamflight had made her feel very fortunate to have two healthy children, her daughters Layal, 14, and Razan, 11 and had made her really appreciate all that she has.

Confidence

It was also a delight to be able to give happiness to families and put a smile on a sick child’s face, she added.

“All of the families have really been appreciative of Dreamflight and felt that we gave their children a chance they wouldn’t normally have,” said Ms Al Abbas.

“This is because most of them would never have the chance to go on an airplane or visit Europe and the US.

“The furthest most of them would be able to travel is Saudi or Iran and then that would be by bus.”

She said the trip had a very positive impact on the children that participate and they come back more confident and outgoing and it gives them a happy memory to recall when life gets tough for them.

“They come back speaking better English because they are surrounded by English speaking kids,” said Ms Al Abbas.

“The children that are chosen to go on Dreamflight come from very poor backgrounds and just being on the flight is something for them.

“On the trip they have seen children that are sicker than them so they come back making the best out of life and become more helpful to others.”

More than 1,000 registered and licensed doctors have criminal convictions… including possession of indecent images of children, sexual assault and threats to kill

  • Disgraced medics have been allowed to keep their jobs despite criminal offences
  • Figures reveal there are 1,067 registered doctors with criminal convictions
  • This includes Dr Steven Burn, 53, a consultant cardiologist, who was able to keep his job despite being found with 65 child abuse images on his work computer
  • Campaigners reacted furiously and said patients should not be kept in the dark

Steven Burn, 53, a consultant cardiologist, was able to keep his job despite being found with 65 child abuse images on his work computer.

The cardiologist, was arrested after IT staff at the Royal Derby Hospital (pictured) found indecent images of children on his work PC while checking to see if it had been infected by a computer virus

Dr Burn, a heart doctor, was arrested after IT staff at the Royal Derby Hospital found indecent images on his work PC while checking to see if it had been infected by a computer virus.

He was convicted by a court of possessing indecent images.

Some of these pictures featured children alleged to be as young as seven, while Burn had also downloaded Japanese ‘Hentai’ animated pornographic images and made Google searches under the headings ‘bestiality’, ‘little Asian girls’, little Japanese girls’ and ‘beautiful little boys’.

But he managed to avoid being struck off after a disciplinary panel at the MPTS ruled Burn should be allowed to return to medicine following a 12-month suspension.

The panel opted to give him the chance to resume his 28-year-old career after he insisted he would ‘rather die than reoffend’.

Figures obtained by MailOnline reveal three doctors have convictions for possessing or taking indecent photographs of children, while three licensed doctors have committed sexual assault.

In another high-profile case, Dr Rupert Pemsel, 32, a trainee anaesthetist, kept his job despite paying a call girl for sex while on duty at a maternity hospital.

The disgraced married father-of-two was branded ‘sordid’ and ‘abhorrent’ after he admitted meeting prostitute Leanne Davies, 29, while still in his hospital gown or ‘scrubs’.

But at a tribunal in Manchester last March, he escaped with just a ten-month suspension rather than being struck off the medical register. Pemsel’s barrister proposed no action should be taken against his client because he was an ‘excellent doctor’.

The medic, whose wife is a GP, had blamed his behaviour on an addiction to internet pornography and stress from helping sick children in Uganda. 

‘To my mind, someone [like Dr Steven Burn], should never be reinstated. I don’t think any person would want a doctor with that kind of history, even for themselves, let alone their children. It’s appalling. That should be that.

Within medicine, there needs to be more independent bodies with no conflict of interest involved in decisions. They should include members of the public as well as a mix of professions who could come to much better decisions in terms of punishments given.’

Roger Goss of Patient Concern told MailOnline: ‘The government should legally oblige the General Medical Council (GMC) to tell patients if a doctor still practising has been found guilty of any crime that could make some people wish to avoid all contact.’

Burn, who lives with his long term girlfriend, told the panel that he started trawling porn websites to ‘block things out’ after he struggled to obtain funding for the cardiology unit at the hospital.

Dr Jonathan Walsh / safeguarding role at hospital – part of paedophile ring

A consultant paediatrician’s career is in tatters after he admitted sharing vile child rape movies with fellow paedophiles all around the world.

Dr Jonathan Walsh was treating young children at North Devon District Hospital by day but then going home and looking at movies which showed the most extreme abuse.

He was also sharing the material with fellow paedophiles using peer to peer software which enabled complete strangers to look at the movies.

Walsh was a senior consultant paediatrician at the hospital in Barnstaple until he was dismissed after being charged by police in September 2015. His duties including responsibility for the safeguarding of children.

He will now face a disciplinary hearing at the General Medical Council where he is likely to be struck off.

He spent 17 months denying his involvement but changed his pleas when he appeared at Exeter Crown Court. Sentencing guidelines for distribution of images suggest he is facing a jail term.

Walsh, 47, formerly of Wordsworth Avenue, Barnstaple, but now living at Lytham St Annes, Cheshire, admitted ten counts of distributing and seven of making indecent images or movies of children.

He submitted a basis of plea which stated he had not intended to distribute the movies and was not aware they were available to other users of the file sharing site.

The prosecution rejected his basis of plea and Judge Brian Forster, QC ordered a special fact finding hearing at which a judge sitting without a jury will decide the issue.

The judge ordered him to sign on the sex offenders’ register. He also ordered a probation pre-sentence report.

The fact finding hearing will be heard by Judge Geoffrey Mercer, QC, at Exeter Crown Court next month, on the day originally set down for trial.

Walsh was arrested after intelligence led police to trace his IP address. No movies were found on his computer but an investigation uncovered evidence of around 300 items which had been deleted.

The high tech crime unit called in a professor who specialised in data recovery who helped them identify 35 files through what are known as hash values.

Officers were able to match the hash values with child abuse movies circulating on the internet. They found that all but one of the 35 came into category A, meaning they showed the most serious types of abuse.

The movies were of boys and girls aged from under two to eight and some showed the victims being forced to take part in penetrative sex with adults.

Many of the movies were distributed on the peer-to-peer file sharing website e-mule between January 1, 2014, and August 27, 2015.

Although the charges refer to Walsh making photographs, this is a technical legal term which means downloading rather than creating images.

Mr Jim Davis, prosecuting, said Walsh’s basis of plea is not accepted.

He said: “We propose to call the officer from the high tech crime unit and the officer in the case.

“There has been a meeting of the experts in this case which has led to a joint document being produced. There does not appear to be any divergence about the expert evidence.”

Mr David Welsh, defending, said Walsh intends to give evidence at the fact finding hearing next month. He said: “There is a counter argument to be made.”

Judge Forster said: “Speaking in neutral terms, the defendant needs to consider carefully his position. There is a benefit in maintaining a guilty plea.

“There is expert evidence available which the prosecution may say shows he had good computer knowledge.”

He told Walsh: “I am adjourning this hearing. There is a date for the trial when the basis of plea will be determined and the Judge will listen to the evidence brought by the prosecution and the evidence which you will give.

“You have now pleaded guilty and are required to register with the police as a sex offender. I am unable to give any indication of what the sentence will be as I will not be the Judge on the next occasion.”

A North Devon children’s doctor has today pleaded guilty to a number of child porn offences.

Paediatrician Dr Jonathan Walsh, 47, of Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, and formerly of Wordsworth Avenue, Barnstaple will be sentenced following a hearing which is due to be held on March 20.

In October last year the Journal reported that Walsh had denied the charges put to him.

However, this morning Walsh  pleaded guilty to 17 charges which included 9 counts of distributing indecent images of children and 6 counts of making indecent images of children. The vast majority of the charges related to ‘Category A’ images which are the most serious in their nature.

Police have worked closely with the Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust throughout this case and can confirm that none of these crimes relate to contact offences, and none of these images relate to patients at the North Devon District Hospital.

Detective Inspector Andrea Kingdon from the Force Child Exploitation Unit, said: “Jonathan Walsh was working in a position of responsibility where he had a duty to protect children and young people, yet he choose to commit crimes with the possession and sharing of indecent images of children which leads to the abuse of some of the most vulnerable in our society.

“Walsh was a practicing and respected paediatrician in North Devon when he was committing these crimes; he let himself and his profession down by his activities which he went to great lengths to hide.

“The victims of these types of offences often do not have a voice as their images are shared by paedophilic networks many times over, in a manner which constantly re-victimises them.

“We are determined to eradicate these types of despicable crimes and to stop paedophile offenders from being gratified by such activity, and in doing so protect the vulnerable.

“It is a testament to the commitment and ingenuity of those investigating this case that his level of offending was uncovered which led to his successful prosecution today.

“I wish to thank those staff an officers in the Public Protection Unit who have the unenviable job of viewing and processing this evidence to allow us to bring Dr Walsh to court to face justice.

“The nature of the offending on the images and videos viewed and distributed by Dr Walsh are at the most serious end of the scale, and some of these included movies some hours in length; this is an incredibly upsetting and challenging task for my team to work through.

“This case has demonstrated how effectively all agencies and professionals can work together to identify those perpetrating these types of crimes no matter what their standing in the community.

“Whilst these may not have been contact offences, the viewing and sharing of these types of images directly leads to the abuse of the most vulnerable in our society – Dr Walsh is as responsible as those who film and take part in this horrific abuse of children.

“I hope that this case sends out a strong message to those using the internet for deviant purposes that we have the capability to use advanced technology and expert help to uncover the truth and bring offenders to justice.”

George Thomson, medical director for the Northern Devon Healthcare Trust, said: “This case has deeply shaken everybody at NDHT and we know it has been a shock to the community.

“We have worked closely with the police throughout this case and we know that none of these crimes relate to contact offences, and none of the images relate to patients at North Devon District Hospital.

“At the launch of the police investigation in September 2015 we took immediate action to exclude Dr Walsh from working at the Trust and informed the General Medical Council. Dr Walsh was dismissed with immediate effect when he was charged in June.

“Anybody with any concerns can call 0300 123 1744 to find out how to access support.”

An NSPCC spokesperson for South West England said: “The children in these pictures and videos, some of which fell into the most serious category of offending, are the victims of child abuse and the horrific experiences they endured for the images to be created should not be underestimated.

“Although it has been acknowledged that none of the images related to patients at this hospital, Walsh was working in a position of significant responsibility when he chose to commit these crimes, with no regard for the effects on vulnerable young children.

“Every image is a crime scene and every child will need support to recover. Working with internet providers, it’s vital that more is done to stop this vile trade in indecent images and to cut this material off at the source.

The British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) closed last week and is being run by administrators.

Much of its work in England will go to the Coram Group and in Scotland to St Andrew’s Children’s Society.

The British Association of Social Workers called the collapse “surprising…. given the extra cash pumped by government into adoption”.

In a statement BAAF chief executive Caroline Selkirk said “significant changes and prevailing economic conditions” meant it had “sadly not been possible to sustain the organisation”.

Coram also provides sheltered housing and support for care leavers.

One man’s opinion of Coram CCLC:

There can be few more depressing sights than a charity proclaiming to act on behalf of children, whilst doing it’s damndest to deprive them of their most basic of human rights – their right to a father.
 
That’s been the role of Coram Children’s Legal Centre (CCLC), an organisation, supported by Cherie Blair, that appears to have perverted the noble intentions of it’s namesake, philanthropic sea captain, Thomas Coram. In 1741 he established the Foundling Hospital for the ‘education and maintenance of exposed and deserted young children’.

Little could he have known that 270 years later, the UK’s first children’s charity, one that bears his name, would be actively denying millions of British children their human rights to a father.
 
The disgracefully named ‘Shared Parenting Consortium’ is led by the CCLC and includes the NSPCC. It is not, as one is led to believe by its title, a consortium supporting shared parenting. In fact, it actively opposes shared parenting.

It’s like Jimmy Saville setting up a consortium supporting abuse victims. Hopefully one day, these people will be exposed in exactly the way and held to account for their actions.

But this isn’t the only deceit used by the CCLC. You might think – as some have – that the ‘Parental involvement’ law championed by these organisations was some sort of victory for dads.
 
Nothing could be further from the truth. It’s a scam. These people openly oppose shared parenting and get you, the taxpayer, to fund them to take your children from you.
 
Don’t forget, this includes the NSPCC who have opposed equality and shared parenting and refused repeated calls from Fathers4Justice to investigate the abuse of children in secret family courts. This despite being presented with reams of evidence. Talk about turning a blind eye.

These organisations then use the wholly discredited ‘90% of cases are settled out of court’ quote which is based on a decade old sample of less than 1,000 people. If everything is so rosy, why are there 4 million children living without their fathers this Christmas?

Thomas Coram must be so proud.

Update Colin Gregg

Colin Gregg trial RECAP: Alleged victims give evidence at Leeds Crown Court

Colin Gregg, 75, of Gosforth, Newcastle, is standing trial in Leeds accused of historic sex offences

9 FEB 2017

Further alleged victims of Colin Gregg gave evidence against him on Thursday.

Gregg, 75, is accused of nine charges of indecent assault against four boys. The alleged attacks are said to have taken place on boys aged between 11 and 14 years old over a period of four decades, beginning in the early 1960s.

During the first day of proceedings on Tuesday, prosecutors told Leeds Crown Court that Gregg “concealed his true nature beneath a veneer of respectability” and he “exploited his position in society to perpetrate abuse”.

On Wednesday, Leeds Crown Court was told the former teacher and charity boss abused a boy while building an adventure playground in Northumberland.

The witness, who was not on the indictment but was been called by the prosecution as a witness, is now in his 60s.

Gregg, of Homefarm Steading, in Gosforth, Newcastle, denies all charges and the trial, set to last two weeks, continues.

Trail finished for the day

The jury have now been sent home for the day.

Keiran will be back at Leeds Crown Court tomorrow morning bringing us live updates.

He will also be sending us a full story of today’s events in court very soon.

The complainant alleged when he was sexually abused by Gregg at the gym.
He said:

“I was in the gym sitting on the weight bench. He asked me to go over an style his hair to make it look trendy and young. I sat in front of him, he started to play with my private parts through my track suit.”

 

The complainant then alleged that Gregg then performed a sex act on him. He says it lasted up to a minute.
He also says two other boys were present in the room.

The complainant is now giving evidence from behind a screen

Asked how he originally felt about Gregg, he called him “inspiring and friendly”.
He is now asked about the home gym of Gregg’s.
The complainant has drawn a sketch of how he remembers the room was laid out.
The sauna, shower, weight bench and television all feature.

We will now hear from another alleged victim

This complainant’s allegations are counts three, four, five, six and seven on the indictment.
Counts three and four are what are legally called specimen counts, meaning they contain repeated occasions on which the alleged victim says he was abused.
In this case, it is alleged Gregg repeatedly performed a sex act on the complainant.
The prosecution say they do not know the exact number of occasions this particular offence was committed, only that it was many.
This complainant will give evidence from behind a screen.

Now we move back onto the sauna

Gregg would use scented oils on the coals of the sauna, it is said.
It is again alleged Gregg exposed his genitals and waved the towel above his head to circulate the hot air in the sauna.
Asked if he did this as a prank, Gregg says he did not. He says he was “sensible and appropriate” in the gym.
Gregg again denies massaging the boy in the sauna.

Asked if he massaged the boy’s calves and lower legs, Gregg replied “no”.
He said the only massage he gave was on the boy’s knee cap.
Gregg is asked about letting another boy steer Gregg’s car while sitting on his knee.
Gregg says he cannot remember it and that the boy would have been sitting in the passenger seat.

The allegation made by the boy is now put to Gregg.
Gregg said he did not touch his thigh as described. He says he did not touch his genitals.
Gregg now says he would never take off his towel in the sauna and denied the earlier allegation he swung his own towel around his head “like a lasso”.
And he denies pulling the boys’ towels off them.

Speaking on the rub of the sore knee, Gregg says it would happen before getting into the shower and sauna.
He says the boy would have shorts on.
Gregg said he had no issues from the boy or his brother.
Gregg sent a Christmas card to the family and received one back, the court hears.
When asked if he kept in contact with the boy’s mother, Gregg said no.

We now move onto the boy’s knee. Gregg says baby oil was used to rub the alleged victim’s bad knee, he says he would rub “either side of the knee cap”.
Gregg says he cannot specifically remember performing a hamstring stretch on the boy.
He says he never performed the stretch on the boy in the sauna, or rubbed his knee.
Asked if there would be any reason at all why his hand would be near the boy’s groin, Gregg replied, “absolutely not”.

The trial has resumed and we are hearing from a police interview with Colin Gregg.
It relates to the complainant we heard from this morning.
The interview begins with Gregg denying he abused the boy.
Gregg described him as “a very nice young man”.
Asked if he was friendly with the boy’s mum, Gregg so he was.
Asked if the boy used the sauna, he said he did and all the boys wore towels.
Asked if he had seen the boy naked in the shower, Gregg says he did.

No memory of ‘boy being molested’

Onto his memory of his brother being massaged by Gregg, he says it was more his thighs than his knees.

The witness said he never saw anyone but his brother massaged by Gregg.

The final question is if he remembers Gregg molesting another boy while he styled Gregg’s hair.

He says he has no memory of it.

The witness has finished giving evidence.

Witness was left uncomfortable by nudity

The witness is now being cross-examined by Gregg’s defence.

They are discussing nudity.

Ms Wass says it is now not acceptable for a teacher to undress in front of students.

She asks if the witness is suggesting the other boy’s dad being naked in the sauna is wrong. He says looking back it was uncomfortable.

The witness says that at the time he did not consider it his place to say it was wrong.

He agrees he was never forced to get into the sauna or the shower.

Witness told police: ‘I thought he was a nice man’

A 1996 police statement from the witness is now being read to the jury.

It discusses the gym at Gregg’s home. He says Gregg did not massage him but he did do it to his brother, who would get sore knees.

The statement confirms Gregg never touched him in a way he objected to or did anything untoward.

It added: “I got on well with him and thought he was a nice man.”

More questions on Gregg’s sauna

The witness now works with children and say he now regards the alleged incidents with “a sense of disbelief”.

Now he is asked about the boy’s father who would also be in the sauna. He says it would not be as often as Gregg and that he would always be naked in the sauna.

There was also a shower in the gym and people would use it after the sauna.

He says when Gregg would dry himself off after a shower, he would do it in the main room.

The witness says he remembers Gregg massaging his brother’s legs in the sauna, using Johnson’s baby oil.

Asked if he ever saw Gregg’s wife or daughters, the witness replied “no”.

Gregg would ‘always’ be in sauna, court hears

The witness now says the boys would often be in Gregg’s car.

He is discussing what would happen at the gym. He says they would use the weights before getting in the sauna.

He says whoever was there would get into the sauna. Gregg being in there was “always the case”, he says.

The witness says he wore a towel in the sauna, as did Gregg.

Asked if Gregg’s towel always remained on, he said “no”.

He says Gregg would take off his towel and “lassoo it around his head” to circulate the area.

Gregg would then be naked.

Asked how he felt about this, he said “self-conscious and peculiar”.

Mother dropped them at Gregg’s house

We will now hear from the brother of the previous complainant.

The boys’ mother would take them to Gregg’s house.

Sometimes she would take their friends along.

The witness tells the court he would go to the garage and get changed. Asked about the gym, he agrees it contained a sauna, bench, shower and television.

Asked where he got changed, if it was in a cubicle, he said it was just in the gym area.

One of the other boys’ dad would attend from time to time, the jury is told.

Alleged victim denies ‘rewriting history’

We now move onto the complainant’s counselling.

It had been suggested he had “rewritten history” and reframed what had happened between him and Gregg.

He denies this.

The complainant now denies that the police persuaded him to state something that he knew was untrue.

He is now asked how long Gregg’s hand was allegedly in touch with his private parts.

He says a minute or two.

The complainant has now finished giving evidence.

Asked about gym

Prosecutor Paul Greaney QC is now quizzing the complainant.

He is asking about the television in Gregg’s gym.

The complainant said he and other boys would watch the television in the gym.

Now he is asked about the shower and if it had a curtain. He said he thinks it did.

Gregg was ‘fitness fanatic’

The court hears Gregg was a fitness fanatic who became well known raising money through running.

Gregg was “methodical” about his runs, involving stretching at the right time and stretching in the sauna.

Ms Wass said others would have stretches from Gregg and he had been advised my Olympic runner Sebastian Coe on how to do stretches.

Ms Wass is now talking about the gym at Gregg’s home.

It is described as a “pleasant area” and Gregg’s wife would provide juice for the people there.

Gregg has ‘robust attitude’ to nudity

Ms Wass says Gregg had a “robust” attitude to nudity, and compares it rugby players having a bath after the game.

She also says the father of one of the boys who was also naked in the sauna shared the same “robust” attitude to nudity as Gregg.

Ms Wass said: “Some people think nothing of taking their clothes off in the changing rooms while others would rather die than anyone see them naked.”

She asks the complainant if he thinks anyone who gets naked in a changing room is inappropriate.

He replied he does not and it is wrong to equate rugby players having a communal bath with Gregg allegedly being naked in a sauna with boys.

Did not consider himself a victim at first, court hears

Ms Wass says the complainant “knew the difference between truth and fiction” when he made his police statement in 1996.

The complainant said the statement no longer remains true.

He says the way someone feels or thinks about something over time is not fixed, and how he feels about the alleged incident has changed.

Ms Wass asks if his statement remains true, he replied no.

In around 2014 when the investigation into Gregg was resurrected, the complainant did not consider himself a victim, the court hears.

But he later made a second police statement “in contradiction” to his first, where he claimed to be a victim of Gregg.

Alleged victim quizzed on old statement

The alleged victim is now being cross-examined by Gregg’s defence, Sasha Wass QC.

She is asking about the complainant’s 1996 police statement in which he said Colin Gregg had never abused him.

He was in his late teens when he spoke to police and cannot remember exact details about the time he gave the statement.

The complainant had previously said “things can be true and false at the same time”.

Ms Wass replied: “You were either sexually abused or you were not.”

Reported alleged abuse in 2014

Later, the complainant visited a psychoanalyst, where he says he discussed what he alleges happened between he and Gregg.

In a police statement in March 2014, the complainant alleged he was sexually assaulted by Colin Gregg.

The complainant is asked if he has ever sought compensation for what he says happened to him.

He says he has not.

Complainant denied abuse to police

In 1996, the complainant gave the police a statement.

It read: “I stopped running because I lost interest, no other reason. Colin Gregg has never done anything to me I objected to.

“I enjoyed his company.”

He also gave evidence at Gregg’s 1997 trial stating something similar.

‘I had a huge amount of respect for him’

When asked if he told anything about the alleged incident, the complainant said he did not.

He said:

I wanted to conceal my own embarrassment. Colin Gregg was a very significant person in my life at that time. I did not have a huge amount of confidence growing up and Colin Gregg tried to bolster that.

I had a huge amount of respect and admiration for him. To conceive he might be up to wrong was inconceivable.

 

Claims Gregg touched boy during stretch

He now moves on to an alleged sexual assault.

The complainant, who says he was either 11 or 12 when it took place, said:

On one occasion it was suggested that I would have some stretching and then a massage.

I lay upside down on the bench with my head where your legs would usually be. Colin Gregg was at the other end performing a hamstring stretch on me. One of my legs was on his shoulder and the other was down so he could perform the stretch.

 

The alleged victim then said that while Gregg was performing the stretch, Gregg moved his hand up his leg and onto his crotch.

The complainant, who said he was wearing running shorts at the time, added: “It was not a pleasant experience. It lasted about two minutes. I was absolutely mortified and hugely embarrassed.”

Gregg ‘would massage boy’s leg’

The complainant tells the court he had a bad knee and Gregg would massage his leg.

Gregg, it would be alleged, would use baby oil on the complainant while massaging him either in the sauna or in the gym.

Claims boys had towels taken off them

He now says it would not be unusual for Gregg to take a towel off boys in the sauna and “swing it above his head” to increase the temperature.

This would leave the boys naked, he alleges.

The complainant says when it would happen to him it left him feeling “very uncomfortable”.

He now tells the court there were other occasions when one of the other boys’ dad would be in the sauna and would also be naked at times.

But he alleges it was generally the case Gregg was the only adult in the sauna.

Gregg was naked in sauna, court hears

The complainant is now describing his time in the gym.

He tells the jury he would use the weight bench and would often use the sauna, which he says could accommodate “four people at a squeeze” on the single bench inside.

When asked if he would be in on his own in the sauna or with other people, he said it was “the norm” for Gregg to be in the sauna with him.

The complainant would wear a towel, he says, and then alleges Gregg would be naked.

Other boy in driver’s seat

He now tells the court he would spend time in Gregg’s car, a silver Volvo estate. He says another boy was allowed to sit in front of Gregg on the driver’s seat and steer the car, on public roads.

The complainant says the other boy would have been about 12 or 13.

He adds he can’t remember exactly how he was seated but he was “probably” sat between Gregg’s legs.

Man says he would often go to Gregg’s gym

The jury is now being shown a picture of the house, as well as the garage. The garage could be accessed by a white door.

It would be a “very regular occurrence” for the alleged victim to attend Gregg’s house and more often than not he would go to the gym, the jury are told.

Sometimes the alleged victim would get changed at the house, he says.

‘Victim’ describes Gregg’s gym

The abuse is said to have taken place at a previous address of Gregg’s in Gosforth, Newcastle.

The home had a two-storey garage with a room above where the car was parked. There was no direct access between the house and the garage, the only way to access the garage was to leave the house.

The room above the garage contained a sauna, a shower, a treadmill, a weightlifting bench, a sit-up bench and a television.

It was known as “the gym” by the alleged victim.

Alleged abuse at home

He is now in the witness box.

The alleged abuse is said to have taken place at Gregg’s Gosforth home in the late 1980s.

Alleged victim on witness stand

The jury will now hear evidence from a complainant in the case, who alleges he was sexually abused by Gregg.

The alleged victim, now in his 40s, says Gregg was the headteacher at King’s Junior School in Tynemouth when the alleged attacks took place.

Gregg says he does not recognise alleged victim

During the interview, Gregg was shown a picture of one of his alleged victims and told police he did not recognise the boy.

When told the boy’s name, he said he did not recognise it.

Gregg says he remembers boys going up to Northumberland to help build the adventure playground. Yesterday, a witness claimed that during the building of the playground, Gregg sexually abused him.

In the interview, Gregg is told the alleged victim could recall the registration plate of the Saab car he was using at the time, in which it was alleged abuse took place.

Gregg once again says he does not remember the boys who made allegations against him and said “it did not happen”.

The interview has finished.

Court hears Gregg’s police interview

The trial has resumed.

We will now hear from a police interview with Colin Gregg, from September 9 2014.

The interview was taken by detective constable Daniel Anderson.

He is asked about his time at Durham School and allegations of sexual abuse, of which he denies.

Alleged victim to speak at trial

Today is day three of Colin Gregg’s trial at Leeds Crown Court.

He is charged with nine counts of indecent assault against four boys, aged 11-14.

Gregg, 75, denies all allegations.

Today we will hear from a man who alleges Gregg sexually abused him during his time as headmaster of King’s Junior School in Tynemouth in the late 1980s.

The complainant is now in his 40s.

Judge Mairs is in court and the jury is about to enter so the trial can resume

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/local-news/colin-gregg-trial-live-alleged-12578811

14 FEB 2017

Leeds Crown Court heard on Tuesday from the parents of the complainant from Gregg’s trial in 1997, where the former teacher was accused of indecently assaulting a boy while he was aged 10 to 14. Gregg was acquitted at Newcastle Crown Court.

The prosecution allege there are similarities between the accusations made in 1997 and those which he is now on trial for and say they are “hallmarks of the defendant’s behaviour”.

The jury was told the complainant, now aged in his 30s, first made the allegations of sexual abuse against Gregg in April 1996.

The alleged abuse took place in his car, sauna and study between 1991 and 1996, the court heard.

Describing the moment when she found out, the complainant’s mum said: “He told me he had been groped. He was just so hurt. His face was in pain. He had huge respect for the defendant. He looked up to him.”

The complainant’s mum said her son burned the clothes he wore during one of the attacks and destroyed gifts given to his family by Gregg.

Under cross-examination, she was accused of exaggerating the events having not disclosed the information to police during her first interview.

The complainant’s mum replied: “I know for certain he burned the clothes in the garden and we gave away a table tennis table.”

Her husband later told the court that he tried to speak to his son about the abuse, who was “very withdrawn and angry”.

After taking advice from a family friend Gregg was reported to the police, the court heard.

The jury then heard Gregg’s statement to police in 1996 where he denied the allegations.

He said: “I agree that we went into the study so he could show me how to use the CD rom. I may have squeezed his leg but never tried to loosen his belt.”

Gregg went on to say he denied touching the teenager in a sexual way.

Gregg is a former headteacher at The King’s School Junior School in Tynemouth and taught at Durham School and in Newcastle’s West End.

He also worked in the children’s department at Newcastle City Council as a social worker.

Opening the trial, prosecutors said Gregg, of Homefarm Steading, in Gosforth, Newcastle, will claim the allegations against him are motivated by people trying to win compensation.

Colin Gregg’s wife tells crown court she has no concerns over his behaviour towards children

The alleged attacks are said to have taken place on boys aged between 11 and 14 over a span of four decades

17 FEB 2017

The wife of Colin Gregg has told a court she has no concerns over his behaviour towards children.

The former head teacher, 75, is standing trial accused of nine counts of indecent assault against four boys.

The alleged attacks are said to have taken place on boys aged between 11 and 14 over a span of four decades, beginning in the early 1960s and lasting until the 1990s.

Leeds Crown Court has heard allegations Gregg molested the boys in his home gym, a swimming pool and in his car.

The former charity boss, of Homefarm Steading in Gosforth, Newcastle, denies the charges.

On Friday, 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.”

Gregg is a former headteacher at The King’s School Junior School in Tynemouth and taught at the prestigious Durham School and in Newcastle’s West End.

He also worked in the children’s department at Newcastle City Council as a social worker.

While teaching, he launched the Greggs Children’s Cancer Run after a pupil was diagnosed with kidney cancer.

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

The alleged victim is now being cross-examined by Gregg’s defence, Sasha Wass QC.

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.

Carlton Club Members – Westminster Paedophile Ring

So is Daily Mail’s “120%” an attempt to create an Exaroesque “credible & true” stick with which to beat investigation with later?

Please find at a statement from me following stories in the media today re the investigation into Sir Edward Heath

Sir Edward Heath WAS a paedophile, says police chief: Astonishing claim is made that the former PM is guilty of vile crimes ‘covered up by the Establishment’

  • More than 30 people have come forward with claims about the former PM 
  • And they are said to have given ‘strikingly similar’ accounts to Wiltshire Police 
  • The county’s chief constable has said that the allegations are ‘totally convincing’
  • Pictures have emerged of Heath driving – despite it being claimed he didn’t have a car 

The police chief investigating claims that Sir Edward Heath was a paedophile is convinced the allegations are ‘120 per cent’ genuine, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

More than 30 people have come forward with claims of sexual abuse by the former Conservative Prime Minister, according to well-placed sources.

And they are said to have given ‘strikingly similar’ accounts of incidents to Wiltshire Police – even though the individuals are not known to each other.

The Mail on Sunday has been told that Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale regards the allegations as ‘totally convincing’, and plans to publish a report in June.

Detectives have established that, contrary to claims that Sir Edward could not have committed the crimes as he ‘never drove a car’ and ‘always’ had a police driver with him, he did drive – and did have a car.

They have photographic evidence that shows he is a driver, and have established that he had a driving licence. He also bought a Rover 2000 after being deposed as Tory leader by Margaret Thatcher in 1975, when he was 58.

Astonishingly, Mr Veale is also understood to support claims that Sir Edward’s alleged crimes were reported to police years ago but covered up by the Establishment.

Some of those who said Sir Edward abused them are believed to have told police they went on to commit sexual abuse crimes themselves as a result.

The investigation into Sir Edward, called Operation Conifer, was set up in 2015 in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

Mr Veale came under pressure to abandon the inquiry last year after separate claims of a paedophile ring at Westminster involving former Home Secretary, the late Lord Brittan, and former Defence chief, Lord Bramall, were found to be groundless.

Allegations that Sir Edward was involved in satanic orgies have been dismissed as fantasy by an expert asked to review the case.

However, The Mail on Sunday has been told that Mr Veale believes the paedophile allegations are genuine. A source said: ‘Mr Veale believes in them 120 per cent and thinks they are totally convincing.

‘There are very close similarities in the accounts given by those who have come forward. The same names used for him, the same places and same type of incidents keep coming up.

‘What stands out is that the people giving these accounts are not connected but the stories and the details dovetail.

‘It contains disturbing stuff. Investigators have been shocked by what they have learned.’

Another source said: ‘The police were initially sceptical about the allegations, but now believe them. And they have come round to the view that they were covered up in the past because of who Heath was.

‘They will not be deflected by the rich and powerful trying to do the same now. Mike Veale is doing a great job and should be congratulated for his courage.’

The disclosures come after several senior politicians dismissed the allegations against Heath as absurd and unfounded. Former Tory Foreign Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind complained Heath’s reputation was being ‘besmirched’. Heath’s sexuality has been the source of much speculation over the years. Some believed he was gay, others said he was ‘asexual.’ At one point, he was being investigated by no fewer than five police forces – the Met, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Kent and Jersey.

The claims, some of which have been proved false, include alleged links to a convicted brothel keeper known as Madame Ling-Ling. A paedophile dossier compiled by Labour peer Baroness Castle said he offered young boys trips on his yacht, and in a separate incident one man claimed Sir Edward picked him up hitchhiking in Kent as a 12-year-old in the 1960s and lured him to his Mayfair flat.

Labour MP Tom Watson also said he had received allegations about Sir Edward. However the claims Mr Veale is investigating, which date from the 1960s to 1990s, are not linked to the discredited evidence of the man known as ‘Nick’, who alleged a high-level paedophile ring.

One of the key counter-claims made when the allegations first surfaced came from former Cabinet Secretary Lord Armstrong, who worked with Heath when he was Prime Minister. He said Heath ‘never drove a car’ and always had at least one policeman with him from 1970 until his death in 2005.

The fact that Sir Edward could drive was confirmed last night by a friend, who said the former Prime Minister bought a car in 1975, although Sir Edward was later given a chauffeur-driven car and police guard after IRA death threats.

Asked if Mr Veale believed the allegations against Sir Edward were ‘totally convincing’, a police spokesman said the Chief Constable was determined to ‘ensure the investigation is proportionate, measured and legal’ and that the job of the police was to ‘impartially investigate allegations without fear or favour and go where the evidence takes us. It is not the role of the police to judge the guilt or innocence of people in our criminal justice system.’

Further asked if Mr Veale had ‘120 per cent’ faith in the allegations, the spokesman declined to comment.

DO THESE PHOTOS UNDERMINE EX PM’S DEFENCE

Sir Edward Heath seen with his car in Weymouth, despite claims he never drove

Sir Edward Heath seen with his car in Weymouth, despite claims he never drove

These are the photographs that appear to disprove the notion that the allegations against Sir Edward cannot be true because he ‘never drove a car’ and was always accompanied by police.

Both were taken in October 1975. In the main picture on the right, Heath is standing by the driver’s door of the Rover 2000 he bought after Margaret Thatcher ousted him as Tory leader in February that year. In the picture on the left, he is seen arriving at the Tory Party conference in Blackpool – in the driver’s seat.

The Mail on Sunday has learned that Wiltshire Police has also obtained photographic evidence of him driving.

The issue was first raised by former Cabinet Secretary Lord Armstrong, who worked with Sir Edward in No 10. Lord Armstrong said Sir Edward – whom he described as ‘asexual’ – had a 24-hour police guard and driver from the day he became PM in 1970 to his death in 2005, and did not have his own car.

‘When he was at home he had two policemen on the gate, he had the personal protection officer from Scotland Yard in the house, he never drove a car himself, he always had an official driver,’ said Lord Armstrong. ‘It seems highly unlikely he could have escaped all that to do the kind of thing that is described.’

Sir Edward Heath again pictured driving, this time leaving leaves the conference for the sea breezes of Weymouth

Sir Edward Heath again pictured driving, this time leaving leaves the conference for the sea breezes of Weymouth

Sir Edward bought the Rover after losing the chauffeur-driven car he was entitled to as Prime Minister, then Opposition leader.

A confidant of the former PM said: ‘He definitely could and did drive, though was a notoriously bad one. When he went to music concerts in Salzburg and hired a car, he was meant to drive it because his British police guards weren’t officially allowed to.

‘But they insisted as they were frightened he was going to crash.’

Mandarin who can’t help being economical with truth: Lord Armstrong at centre of accusations of child abuse cover-up

  • Senior civil servant in Thatcher government accused of ‘shocking’ attitude
  • Ex-Cabinet Secretary Lord Armstrong defended apparent abuse cover-up
  • Was warned by security services in 1986 that MP had ‘a penchant for boys’
  • Said he believed decision not to investigate claims was ‘correct at the tim

It has been revealed that he was urged by MI5 to help hush-up abuse allegations against a senior MP so as to avoid political embarrassment for the Thatcher government.

A document from November 1986 shows that Sir Antony Duff, then director-general of MI5, wrote to Armstrong about inquiries into one MP said to have ‘a penchant for small boys’.

Even today, despite years of official investigations into the claims and a top-level review into the loss of hundreds of Home Office files relating to the original allegations, Armstrong defiantly refuses to identify the suspect politician or even say if he is alive or dead. Can he really still believe that it is acceptable to be ‘economical with the truth’?

His attitude reflects an arrogant mindset that has for too long prevailed in Westminster and Whitehall.

The newly-unearthed files expose how protection of the Establishment took priority over the need to prosecute anyone suspected of paedophilia and over the safety of vulnerable young children.

In a letter to Armstrong about the suspected MP, Sir Antony warned that secrecy must prevail. ‘At the present stage…the risks of political embarrassment to the Government is rather greater than the security danger,’ he wrote.

In other words, if the rumours of a sex-ring were true and children had been abused, the welfare of the child must be subjugated to the national interest.

At the time, in 1986, there was little public discussion about the rumours. Whistleblowers were silenced, files mysteriously vanished and evidence which might have nailed the culprits was ignored.

New BBC paedophile scandal as ‘hero’ ex-chauffeur is unmasked as convicted child rapist

17 JUL 2016

Niven James Sinclair was so influential he sat in on BBC meetings – but Dame Janet Smith’s abuse probe in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal failed to identify him

A pervert with three child sex convictions worked as a BBC chauffeur for almost 30 years.

Niven James Sinclair drove VIPs ­including former Prime Minister Ted Heath and was employed to run BBC transport as a third party contractor. His firm supplied up to 150 cars.

He was so influential he sat in on BBC meetings and was involved with shows including Newsnight and Panorama.

And astonishingly, Dame Janet Smith’s probe into paedophiles at the BBC in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal failed to identify him.

Sinclair only stopped working for the broadcaster in 2005, aged 82, when his firm was still supplying 92 vehicles.

A glowing 2005 profile on the BBC website, still online tonight, was headlined: “A driving

Heath aide suicide over paedo arrest

 Secretary shot himself

15th August 2015

SIR Edward Heath’s ex-aide, Nicholas Edgar, killed himself after being arrested by cops investigating child abuse claims.

Nick Edgar, 40, put a shotgun to his head two days after questioning over images on his computer.

The father of three worked as ex-PM Sir Edward’s secretary in the Nineties. He was held by child abuse investigation police in April, 2010.

Edgar was quizzed again four months later but then shot himself near his parents’ Cambridgeshire estate.

The former Oxford University Union president got the job with Sir Edward in 1992 and worked for him until late in the decade, spending months at the politician’s Wiltshire home.

Jan 1984 R v O’Dowd: Boy George’s uncle alleges photos of Heath with children exist & Cecil Parkinson attends the court case

From Sept 2014 Two ‘interesting’ allegations – Edward Heath: The Paedophile Prime Minister.

“the producer told me that years before when he was an assistant editor in a cutting room in Wardour Street he used to get his holiday photos developed at a shop in Wardour Street and one day the shop was raided by the police because the owner was dealing in pornography or at least that was the presumed reason. During the raid, a distribution list was discovered which had Ted Heath’s name on it also Patrick Moore’s and it was for “kiddie porn” as it was termed in those days. I do not know how he got this information about the list but apparently “everyone in Wardour Street” knew about it.”
It reminded me of a very strange court case involving Boy George’s uncle Kenneth O’Dowd in 1984 who alleged that he had compromising photographs of Edward Heath . The news reports do not describe what the photographs that included Ted Heath depicted however he says that his former mistress “appeared in pornographic photographs together with his two children”
 .
According to The Glasgow Herald, O’Dowd produced a photocopied photograph of Edward Heath but it was “dismissed in court as a forgery”.
 .
If you thought that was all very curious then I’m sure you’ll be intrigued about why Cecil Parkinson should take enough interest in this case to attend and observe part of the trial himself, as was John Stapleton and Nick Owen were…Intrigued
Below are two stories about the trial from The Times.
 .
January 19th 1984
A woman denied at the Central Criminal Court yesterday that she had appeared in pornographic photographs with Mr Edward Heath, the former Prime Minister. The woman, a mother of three children, whose former boy friend has pleaded not guilty to raping and assaulting her, said she had never met Mr Heath, or been photographed in indecent positions with men or children. The man has asserted that the charges against him have been fabricated by the woman and the police. “He says they wish to muzzle his evidence to bring to book certain persons, including the woman, who he says appeared in pornographic photographs together with his two children”, the court has been told by Mr Stephen Mitchell, for the prosecution. The defendant had claimed he found photographs showing a man he recognized as Edward Heath and another man he has named as a Det Sgt Wallace. Mr Heath has denied being in the alleged photographs. The woman said in evidence yesterday that, although the defendant had taken some pictures of her undressed, they were of her alone. She said she had never been photographed with det Sgt Wallace or had sexual intercourse with him. Cross-examined by the defendant, she denied ever seeing a briefcase in her home with the initials “E.A.H.” on it. She also denied his allegation that she had been part of a prostitution ring. The trial was adjourned until today.
.

January 18th 1984

An accused man’s claim that he was framed by the authorities because he had discovered pornographic photographs of his lover, naked, In poses with Mr Edward Heath, the former Prime Minister, and a detective sergeant, were “wild and totally unfounded” the prosecution maintained at the Central Criminal Court yesterday. Mr Stephen Mlitchell, for the Crown, told a jury of seven women and five men that the allegations of the existence of such photographs had been made last October at the man’s first trial which was halted after three weeks and a new trial ordered. The defendant, aged 37, has pleaded not guilty to charges of raping and assaulting his former mistress, aged 32, a mother of three daughters. The defendant claimed he had discovered five colour photographs in the jewel box of the woman with whom he lived at their flat in 1976, while they were living at Woolwich, south east London. Their young daughters were looking on allegedly as the woman posed on her bed. Mr Heath was said to have been in two of the photographs, and the detective Sergeant, Brian Wallace, in three of them. But, Mr Mitchell said, no such photographs existed, although the jury would probably spent a great deal of time listening to comments about them. The defendant also claimed that he had found a black briefcase, bearing an MP’s initials, in a cupboard at his former lover’s flat. Some photographs did exist, Mr Mitchell said. The woman remembered that she had once posed nude and semi-nude. But the existence of “the odd dirty photo” whould not have any great influence on the case, he said. The man was accused of threatening his former lover with a knife and a hammer after breaking into her home in September 1982, and raping and assaulting her.

Group of women who say they were abused by Sir Edward Heath also claim their parents ran a satanic sex cult that was involved in SIXTEEN child murders

Feb 20 2017

They claim their mother and father – knew the former Conservative leader.

They allege that the politician was part of a satanic sex cult run by their own parents.

The women’s claims were dismissed by police in 1989 when they came forward. Sir Edward’s name was never mentioned to police at the time. It was only last year that he was named for the first time after one of the claimants said she had ‘remembered’ a man called ‘Ed’ was a prime mover in a network of paedophile abusers.

“They say that the cult regularly slaughtered children as ritual sacrifices in churches and forests around southern England  (Wiltshire is considered part of Southern England) and also participated in similar ceremonies in Africa.”

[Africa : Hoskins/ John Smyth (went to Africa in 1984 – funded by Colman Family from 1989 on – Lady Colman  – friend and relation of the royal family.]

Pervert MP Cyril Smith was pals with satanic child sex monster

Victim Michael Roberts reveals his devil-worshipping stepdad Michael Horgan organised abuse

Sept 3 2014

Paedophile MP Cyril Smith was in league with another appalling child sex abuser who set up satanic rituals and raped children as young as TWO.

Victim Michael Roberts, 40, today bravely puts aside his right to ­anonymity to tell for the first time how he was only six when he was sexually abused by 29-stone politician Smith.

michael-horgan

Michael Horgan, who has also used the name Shaun O’Donnell, became known as the High Priest of Satan.

He organised outdoor “parties” for these activities on Saddleworth Moor, where child killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley had buried their victims.

Youngsters from two to 13 were drugged, tortured and sexually abused during the satanic “ceremonies”.

He was jailed for 10 years and placed on the sex offenders’ register after he was found guilty of six sex abuse ­charges in 1992

The shock revelation over the satanist and MP’s friendship raises questions over any role Smith and Jimmy Savile may have played in Horgan’s paedo ring.

Horgan was also pals with Raymond Hewlett, the child rapist questioned in relation to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Did these monsters murder little Lesley?

25-year- old inquiry is reopened after NOW investigation

Two of Britain’s most evil paedophiles are to be quizzed over the sex murder of schoolgirl Lesley Molseed 25 years ago-after new evidence was uncovered by the News of the World.

The 11-year-old-known as Little Miss Chatterbox was appallingly assaulted, knifed to death and left on moors. The News of the World has now linked the horror to pink-haired Michael Horgan, Raymond Hewlett and a third man we are not naming.

A hardened detective, who keeps a photo of Lesley on his desk, has opened 148 new lines of inquiry into her murder as a result of our dossier. Det Chief Supt Max McLean glanced at the picture and said:

 

“I’ve been looking at it for some time. This is a case that stirs you to want to do your best. Your dossier’s been extremely helpful.”


Lesley, who had a heart defect, was killed in October 1975 while on an errand for her mum. She was sexually assaulted, knifed 12 times and dumped near her home town of Rochdale, Lancs. Educationally subnormal Stefan Kiszko was found guilty of the murder, but freed after 16 years when DNA evidence cleared him.

Our dossier indicates that satanic child-sex abuser Horgan-now 52 and with a Mohican hairstyle-‘groomed’ Lesley leading up to her death. On the afternoon of her disappearance, loner Horgan – now at a hostel in London’s Elephant and Castle-was spotted luring her away from the shops with a bag of sweets. Later that day he was seen with the distraught child clawing to get out of a car.

Early the next day he and the man we are not naming spent two hours meticulously scrubbing a blue van. We also discovered Lesley’s body was found five miles from a house where Horgan and other paedophiles subjected children to satanic abuse. He was a close friend of serial child sex offender Hewlett, at the time of the murder.

Tapes

We have tapes of meetings we set up between Horgan and his ex-wife Eileen, 63.

She quizzes him about Lesley. He replies:

 

“You’re putting me in a coffin.”


Horgan’s stepdaughter, a schoolpal of Lesley, vividly recalls Horgan bringing the 11-year-old back to their home. The 33-year-old stepdaughter said:

 

“My stepdad said, ‘Do you want some sweets?’ Lesley said, ‘Yeah’.”


Eileen recalls seeing Horgan leading Lesley away from a nearby sweetshop.


Horgan was convicted in 1992 of hanging children from hooks and sexually abusing them in satanic rituals.

Raymond Hewlett  was living just an hour’s drive from where the Maddy McCann disappeared in the Algarve in May 2007 while she was on holiday with her parents

Hewlett has a string of convictions for abducting and raping young girls and has served long stretches in jail.

Note:
Raymond Hewlett was considered to be the prime suspect in disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Questions have been raised regarding the McCann photofit of alleged abductor, bearing a remarkable resemblance to Hewlett as he appeared years younger than he was at the time of Madeleine’s disappearance.
Det Chief Supt Max McLean traveled to Germany to interview Hewlett  prior to Hewlett’s death in German hospital.
July 2011 Questions are being raised regarding the earliest examples of the News of the World hacking phones.  Was this article based on illegally obtained information?
Why did the News of the World provide details regarding Raymond Hewlett and Michael Horgan and yet protect the identity of the third man they suspect was involved in the Lesley Molseed murder?

Above quote from former MP Ann Widdecombe referring to those making claims against former prime minister Sir Ted Heath.


^ Widdecombe smearing  survivors as money-chasers…

The insurance companies, who spoke at the recent IICSA seminar with Alexis Jay,  (see pages 125 – 134 transcript day 1).” said survivors weren’t money-chasers – “They never ask about what the claims are worth.”

Lords Sneer At Survivors And Defend Bishop Accused Of Abuse

Lord Lexden, who proposed the debate, calls ‘Nick’, the man who made allegations in relation to Dolphin Square a “fantasist”, and the subsequent police investigation looking into the matter, “ludicrous”.

He minimises current child abuse allegations about Bishop George Bell by suggesting that a book written in his honour and Lord Lexden’s own involvement with Bell as a member of the George Bell Support Group to clear his name somehow confirm Bell’s innocence – and at the same time criticises the lack of due process in abuse investigations.

Lexden then suggests that the media should not be allowed to report on cases, alluding to allegations involving the church. (Like Butler-Sloss?)

Lord Margadale, Charles and Peter Morrison’s father had Thatcher & Denis to holiday on his whisky producing Islay estate in the summer of 1977 and 1978.

Lord Margadale (Morrison) had previously entertained two other of Savile’s favourites:

“I later asked Ted and he effectively said that he was sexless. I forget the actual term he used…”

At 50, she proclaimed she was a virgin admitting to just one chaste romance back in the 1970s, with fellow Oxford student Colin Maltby. Then she described television and sex as the two things in life she did very nicely without.

It’s striking how often she feels the need to emphasise that this is her choice, that she has never felt anything less than fulfilled. Instinct tells you that such prickliness isn’t only a response to snide Daily Mail journalists; the spikes surely protect a complicated place that a less gauche and more emotionally able woman might just have been willing to visit.

Lord Lexden Tory Party Historian named as a pedophile in Scallywag

In 1994, issue 24, a magazine called Scallywag published the following allegation:

― that on 14 November 1992 in Dolphin Square, Alistair Cooke (Lord Lexden) had taken active part in a ‘paedophile party’ that took place in the apartment of Robert Banks MP.

The magazine reported that Alistair Cooke was positively identified by Robert Banks’ researcher, Anthony Lillis, who was at the scene and who later became a whistleblower of sorts.

It was suggested that some or all of the “young boys” abused (some possibly aged just 14) were highly vulnerable residents or former residents of the ‘Bryn Alyn Community’ children’s homes in North Wales.

Boys whom John Allen, in conjunction with other paedophile ‘fixers’ in Westminster, had allegedly frightened or cajoled into prostitution/child prostitution.

….In light of COBIS’ special association with Lord Lexden (formerly Alistair Cooke), the CEO, Board, Honorary Vice-Presidents and Honorary Members of your organisation will wish urgently to make inquiries with a view to establishing:

  1. Whether your Honorary Vice Patron, Lord Lexden, featured in police inquiries (whether at the time or more recently) related to alleged child sexual abuse or child trafficking?
  1. Whether your Honorary Vice Patron, as a senior official at the heart of the Conservative Party in Westminster at the time, was aware of the alleged ‘Boys for Questions’ operations encircling Parliament?
  1. Whether your Honorary Vice Patron was ever the subject of arrest or police caution?
  1. (If yes to any of the above) How in the world did Lord Lexden OBE come to be an honorary patron of COBIS notwithstanding your safeguarding procedures and child protection duties, and what will be done about it?

Again, there is no suggestion by me that your Honorary Vice President, Lord Lexden is guilty of any wrongdoing. I simply wish to know, from a child protection standpoint, what the facts are.

I look forward to receiving a timely response to my concerns and questions from the CEO, Board, Honorary Vice-Presidents and Honorary Members of the Council of British International Schools.

Baroness Butler-Sloss, a former president of the Family Court, best known for the controversy surrounding her brief Chairmanship of the nation’s IICSA, is believed to have taken part in a debate in the House of Lords yesterday, urging the government to create a statutory framework for child sexual abuse investigations.

The discussion was set to focus on abuse alleged to have taken place in the distant past, or ‘historic abuse’ as some Lords continue to call it, however Researching Reform refuses to use this term as we are aware that survivors and victims of child sexual abuse find it particularly upsetting and not reflective of the day to day reality of living with abuse long after it has happened.

20 February, 2016

On February 19 The Times reported that Ted Heath’s private papers, now in the Bodleian Library Oxford, had been impounded by the police who plan to go through them to establish whether they contain evidence that the former Tory leader was involved in child sex abuse.

Alistair Lexden commented on this extraordinary development in a letter published in The Times on February 20.

Sir, The voluminous Heath papers, bought by the Bodleian Library for a vast sum, are in a mess and need cataloguing (article and leader, Feb.19). The police would do a great service to scholarship if, instead of paying bobbies to become researchers, they gave the money to the Bodleian’s trained archivists who could read every document for signs of sexual depravity and sort out this major archive at the same time. That would salvage something worthwhile from this otherwise ludicrous enterprise.

Her late brother, Lord Havers, had been attorney general in Margaret Thatcher’s government in the 1980s – leading some MPs to question whether she was the right person to investigate allegations of paedophilia from that time.

Downing Street said her withdrawal on 14 July – seven days after being announced as head of the inquiry – was “entirely her decision”.

One of several parliamentary trips to South Africa organised by Atkinson and Laud – all expenses paid, of course – took place in 1989 and included David Cameron, then an employee of Conservative Central Office, now Prime Minster.

When Cameron’s participation in this apartheid freebie was first publicised in 2009, Alistair Cooke (now Lord Lexden), Cameron’s boss at Central Office at the time, defended it as “simply a jolly. It was all terribly relaxed, just a little treat, a perk of the job. The Botha regime was attempting to make itself look less horrible, but I don’t regard it as having been of the faintest political consequence.”

Carlton Club members revolt as former royal aide, Major Simon Robinson, takes charge

Robinson, who used to be commanding officer of the King’s Troop, Royal Horse Artillery, was one of the few aides permitted to telephone the Queen directly.

If he still has her number, will he invite Her Majesty for tea at the Carlton ?

For almost 200 years, the Carlton Club in London’s St James’s has been the bastion of the Conservative Party establishment

Carlton Club members revolt as former royal aide takes charge

As the Crown Equerry, Major Simon Robinson was one of the Queen’s most trusted and favoured aides.

The Queen called regularly for tea at Robinson’s three-storey grace-and-favour house in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

But then in March 2011, Major Robinson quit Buckingham Palace ­under something of a cloud, having split from his wife amid allegations, strongly denied, of an affair.

Now five years on, feathers appear to have been ruffled in his new post as secretary of the Carlton Club, the 184-year-old home to the Conservative ­Party establishment.

In the vitriolic letter, on Carlton Club headed notepaper, the dissenters wrote: “We are calling ourselves The Disgruntled Members of Carlton Club (TDMCC) and hereby would like to anonymously announce that we are not happy with the recent appointment of Major Simon Robinson to be heading this prestigious members’ club.”

It accuses Major Robinson of being of “ill repute”. The letter then lists the concerns with Major Robinson, ­including his departure from Buckingham Palace and the suitability for his new job given his subsequent roles – and ­finally calls on Lord Strathclyde to quit as chairman.

Lord Lexden, a historian who has written the definitive history of the Carlton Club, said: “Unity is the normal characteristic at the Carlton Club, not factionalism. I am aware of but ­surprised to hear these rumblings and find them difficult to understand.”

Those who complain about Major Robinson claim concern over his past, including the circumstances in which he left the Royal household.

They have even delved into a succession of jobs he has held since stepping down as Crown Equerry, suggesting his previous roles as director of public affairs for a company based in Bermuda, executive of a Chinese equestrian consultancy (Equex) and latterly as chief executive of a Russian-owned private members’ club in Mayfair (12 Hay Hill Club) are not sufficient to take on the role of secretary of the Carlton Club.

Hay Hill clientele -Shades of Mark Thatcher? 

Friends from their time in military service, they often team up on jobs and pool their extensive contact networks. I meet them in the smart but serious London members’ club 12 Hay Hill, their preferred venue for client meetings. Sharply dressed in Savile Row suits, they have impeccable credentials: Mann (whose father is Old Etonian mercenary Simon Mann, who spent five years in prisons in Zimbabwe and Equatorial Guinea for his role in a failed coup in the latter) attended Stowe and Bristol before joining the Blues and Royals and serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Glancy was sponsored through Oxford by the Royal Marines and served with them for 10 years, receiving the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross in 2013 for undisclosed operations. When he and Mann left the armed forces, the obvious next step was to set up their own risk-management firms, using their expertise and connections to provide protection for anyone who needs it – and can afford it. Prices for bodyguards start at £400 per day and go up into the thousands.

Major Simon Robinson lost his coveted ‘job for life’ as Crown Equerry amid rumours of an extra-marital affair which he continues to deny furiously.

His wife has walked out on him with their two children and started divorce proceedings.

In a move which prompted claims of a cover-up, the suave 44-year-old major was handed a new role in the office which is drawing up plans for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

He delighted in inviting her and Prince Philip for tea at his three-storey house in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

He was one of only a handful of staff who were able to phone her directly. He was also close to the Duke of Edinburgh, and the pair would go shooting together.

Allegations of misbehaviour first surfaced in 2009, but it was not until October 2010

In July that year he was allegedly offered a pay-off equivalent to a year’s salary of between £60,000 and £80,000, and told to depart by December 31.

But the Queen, who was kept closely informed about the matter, is understood to have intervened.

The major was temporarily allowed to keep his grand house just inside the gates of the Royal Mews, where he paid a subsidised rent, and continued to work while challenging the decision.

His responsibilities were gradually reduced but it was not until October 2010 that he left his job, moving to the post of Assistant Comptroller in the Lord Chamberlain’s Office.

This comes with new accommodation at Kensington Palace, Princess Diana’s former home, until he leaves in March.

Mrs Robinson, who works for a children’s charity, declined to comment when approached by the Mail.

He is very close to the Queen – he loves her and she thinks the world of him.’

A Royal Household insider said: ‘The palace is supposed to be saving money, but they have moved a senior member of the Royal Household sideways into another job and taxpayers are paying about £80,000 a year. Why would they be wanting to cover this up?’

FIND MOIRA

New search for remains of schoolgirl Moira Anderson to begin – 60 years after she disappeared

19th February 2017

Specialists will search Monkland Canal in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire in attempt to solve one of the longest-running mysteries in Scottish criminal history

A NEW search for the remains of schoolgirl Moira Anderson will start next month – 60 years after she went missing.

Forensic specialists from across Europe will begin the search at a Lanarkshire canal in the hopes that they can solve one of the longest-running mysteries in Scottish criminal history.

A new search will began for the remains of schoolgirl Moira Anderson 60 years after she went missing

A new search will began for the remains of schoolgirl Moira Anderson 60 years after she went missing

The new search is expected to take place across two weeks at a site near Monkland Canal in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire.

Moira’s eldest sister Janet Hart will return to Scotland from Australia for the first time in two decades to make a visit to the site on the 60th anniversary of her sister’s disappearance.

Moira was 11 years old when she went missing after she left her grandmother’s home in Coatbridge to run an errand at the shops in blizzard conditions.

It has been long believed that convicted paedophile Alexander Gartshore murdered 11-year-old Moira. He was the last person to see her in 1957.

Cops were never able to pin the murder on the child rapist, who died a free man in 2006 aged 85.

But prosecutors now believe that they have enough evidence to bring a case against him in court – if he was alive.

The police chief leading the hunt, Detective Superintendent Pat Campbell, said: “We want to find Moira and bring her back.

“We’ve already had a site visit and a meeting where we had 18 experts from various authorities across Europe, many of whom were there of their own accord, such is the interest in trying to find Moira.

“The investigating team will use sonar and ground-penetrating radar as well as magnetometry, where magnetic properties of soil can be measured and mapped.”

The team will include Professor Sue Black from Dundee University who was previously involved in the exhuming of Old Monkland Cemetery in 2013 as well as a number of specialists from the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen and Queen’s University in Belfast.

DS Campbell said: “We feel it’s proportionate to search there.

“Of course, it’s extremely challenging to find remains of a child in water after 60 years and if we do search we need to know we can find something.

“Would the body have degraded to such an extent there is nothing left? Specialists tell us there would still be skeletal remains.”

He added: “Due to technology, we can carry out lots of non-invasive searches for anomalies, too.

“We are 60 years down the line, people are getting on, and that’s a challenge.

“I remain convinced there is someone out there who has information they haven’t shared. We want to bring closure to this.”

This will be sister Janet’s first return home in 16 years, but she has never been far from the story.

Janet – who named her daughter Moira – said: “I still think of her every day.

“I pray each night that she’s found and I still have nightmares, although not so often now.

“It’s something I have to do. All we want is closure.”

https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/608381/new-search-for-remains-of-schoolgirl-moira-anderson-to-begin-60-years-after-she-disappeared/

The sister of Moira Anderson, the schoolgirl who went missing in 1957, said she was sexually assaulted by the man suspected of her sister’s murder.

Janet Hart told BBC Scotland that Alexander Gartshore, who died in 2006, attacked her two years after her 11-year-old sister vanished in Coatbridge.

She said police spoke to her after the incident, but nothing more was done.

Ms Hart now lives in Australia, and has come to Scotland to mark the 60th anniversary since Moira disappeared.

She told BBC Scotland she was out during her lunch hour from school when a man called her over to his car.

“He had the bonnet up at the side,” she said.

“He told me to hold his dipstick, and under he went and up – groping me.

“I dropped the dipstick and ran.”

She said she turned back to note down his registration plate.

Two policewomen came to the school and spoke to Ms Hart, but she said “nothing more was heard”.

“Wouldn’t you think something would have happened then?” she said.

Afterwards, the school rector spoke to pupils and advised them to go around the community in pairs, she said.

“That was Alexander Gartshore, I identified him, I remembered him so clearly,” she said.

“Luckily I was in an area I could get away – it was broad daylight.

“Unfortunately Moira was trapped on his bus.”

The last time Moira was seen, she was boarding a local Baxter’s bus. But detectives appear to have failed to follow it up properly at the time.

Had they done so, they would have discovered that the bus driver was Alexander Gartshore, who was on bail at the time facing charges of raping his children’s babysitter.

Later that year, he was convicted and sentenced to 18 months in prison for the rape of the babysitter.

‘Paedo ring’ link to Moira murder

Cops probe sex beasts in the town where she vanished

COPS hunting schoolgirl Moira Anderson’s body are probing claims a child sex ring operated in the town where she vanished.

Detectives are pursuing links between the 11-year-old’s suspected killer Alexander Gartshore and other paedophiles in Coatbridge, Lanarkshire.

It is hoped the new clues could lead to the remains of Moira being found 56 years after her slaying.

DCI Pat Campbell said: “There are allegations about Gartshore and other children, and about his friends and associates being involved in similar behaviour.”

Campaigner Sandra Brown — who accused her dad Gartshore of Moira’s murder before his death in 2006 — said: “I’ve no doubt there was an organised paedophile ring in Coatbridge possibly revolving around the bus depot where he worked.”

A grave was exhumed in the town three months ago in a vain bid to find Moira’s body.

Pressure on police to release paedophile dossier

23 April 2006.A SECRET dossier said to identify members of a paedophile ring could be published within weeks, after the intervention of the Scottish information commissioner.Kevin Dunion has been asked by the family of Moira Anderson, a schoolgirl who disappeared almost 50 years ago, to review a decision by Strathclyde police not to release the document that may identify her abductors.The 11-year-old was last seen boarding a bus in Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, in 1957 during a heavy snowstorm. She was on her way to the shops to buy a box of chocolates for her mother’s birthday.The dossier, written by James Gallogley, a convicted paedophile who died in Peterhead prison in 1999, is said to implicate senior public figures in the abuse of children in Strathclyde during the 1950s and 1960s. It is also believed to list vehicles and safe houses used in Glasgow, Monklands and Paisley where children were hidden before being taken to sex parties.Strathclyde’s chief constable has refused to release the document, saying its publication could destroy any chance of solving the case.However, relatives argue it could help to identify those responsible for Anderson’s abduction and recover her remains.Her sister Janet, 63, who lives in Australia, has appealed to the information commissioner to order its release. A decision is expected in the next few weeks.Her call is backed by Sandra Brown, the founder of the Moira Anderson Foundation, who believes her late father, Alex Gartshore, was responsible for the crime.

In an interview with The Sunday Times this weekend, Brown said her father, a former bus driver and convicted sex offender from Coatbridge, was part of a paedophile ring whose members she will recognise when she sees Gallogley’s dossier.

She said that Gartshore and Gallogley, who were friends, lived close to Fred West, the notorious serial killer, in Coatbridge during the early 1960s. Both Gartshore and West moved out of the area in late 1965.However, Gartshore, who was on bail accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl at the time of Anderson’s disappearance, denied any involvement in the crime. He died earlier this month at the age of 85.

According to Brown, who has spoken to former police officers involved in the investigation, Gallogley’s dossier describes how “wee Moira” was subdued with chloroform, abused by Gartshore and “one other” and placed in the boot of Gartshore’s bus.

It claims her body was dumped in the Tarry Burn in Coatbridge, an area that has never been thoroughly searched.

The dossier was handed to police by a former cell mate four years after Gallogley’s death. It prompted a review of Anderson’s disappearance but failed to throw up any meaningful leads.

“Pressure needs to be brought to bear on Strathclyde police,” said Brown.

“Who is being protected and why is there a problem with transparency? I understand Gallogley’s dossier reveals names in his confession. It indicates Moira was not the sole victim of this ring and gives details of parties where children were abused.

“Those named could help lead us to Moira’s remains. There’s unwillingness by officers to share information.”

However, Strathclyde police said inquiries were ongoing. “We regularly review any investigations and the disappearance of Moira Anderson is no exception,” said a spokesman. “Any new evidence and information will be the subject of further investigation in an effort to resolve her disappearance, ” said a spokesman.

07 Files on Moira Anderson to remain closed

Documents relating to the disappearance of a schoolgirl nearly 50 years ago will not be released following a decision by the Scottish Freedom of Information Commissioner.

Mr Dunion’s decision states: “I know that my refusal to accede to this request will be very disappointing to family members and to friends who, understandably, are desperate to solve the mystery of Moira Anderson’s disappearance.

“However, that would not justify setting aside the privacy to which those making statements to the police are entitled to expect. Nor can I justify the real damage to the integrity of conducting police investigations which would entail.”

Sep 7, 2014

Janet Bates, 62, said yesterday her late husband Terry Crick was racked with guilt when police took no action against West who went on to kill at least 12 people.

She believes his death was due to a campaign by West Mercia and Gloucestershire Police, who she claims failed to act because West was a police informant and officers used the brothel at their home.

Her late husband had reported West in 1970 after he showed him gruesome images of body parts and surgical instruments, which West said he used for illegal abortions.

She said: “Terry had been shown disturbing images and went straight to the police but when they didn’t do anything he felt responsible.

The late father-of-two apparently reported West again when he saw his face on the front of a newspaper in the early 1990s. West and his wife and Rose were finally apprehended and charged in 1994. West committed suicide in 1995 before going to trial.

Rose was convicted of 10 murders in 1995 and is serving life in jail. Many of the murders occurred from 1973 to 1979 in the Wests’ home in Gloucester.

Ms Bates said: “Terry asked how many girls could he have saved if they had listened to him?

She alerted the Independent Police Complaints Commission in May this year claiming her late husband was “bullied and harassed” as part of a cover-up by officers’ involved with the Wests. The allegations are still under investigation.

She said yesterday: “We believe Terry is dead because of the way senior police misused their powers. I did not pursue it as I was afraid that what happened to Terry would happen to me.

“I had two young children at the time but now they are older and they want this mistake acknowledged. This is for them.”

He was a witness at the trial of Rose West in 1995

Gloucestershire Police were accused by another woman of using the Wests’ home as a brothel but the claims were dismissed in 1996.

The case has been referred to Dyfed-Powys Police.

Gloucestershire and West Mercia Police refused to comment.

Thinking this was a reference to an obscure acquaintance, Ann replied “Of course,” to which Payne said enigmatically, “I thought you were.”

Ann had not realised that “a friend of Dorothy” was code for a lesbian. Later she makes clear that, despite some rumours from gay rights campaigners, she has never had lesbian instincts.

Her only serious romance, as she recounts, was with a male student at Oxford.
