Police probe Vaz misconduct claims
11 Sept 2016
Police are examining allegations against the Labour MP Keith Vaz involving potential abuse of office and personal misconduct dating back 25 years.
Four witnesses, including a former lord mayor of Leicester, last week confirmed they had been interviewed by Leicestershire detectives. The inquiries have been going on for at least a year.
Mooted attempt to oust Keith Vaz at yesterday’s Labour NEC never happened. Instead, I’m told, he got a round of applause as he entered room

Senior MP accused of child sex abuse: Two MPs report same serving Labour politician to police over sex attacks and corruption claims
- Labour MP John Mann one of the informants to pass information to police
- A fortnight ago a Conservative MP told police about the same politician
- Unnamed MP is accused of offering political favours to a brothel owner
- Also claimed they were arrested for indecency in public place with a minor
A senior Labour MP has been reported to police by two fellow MPs over claims of child sex abuse, The Mail on Sunday has learned.
One of the informants, Labour MP John Mann, passed details about the prominent individual to officers earlier this year.
Then, a fortnight ago, a Conservative MP went to the same police force armed with information about the same individual, some of which had been provided to him by a former Government Minister.
It is believed to be the first time that a sitting MP has been scrutinised by any of the ongoing police investigations into child abuse, representing a further extension of the ever-widening sphere of historic sex allegations.
Mr Mann handed his information over to an ongoing criminal investigation into another public figure, which included links between that figure and the Labour MP.
The Conservative MP’s allegations about the MP, which date back to the late 1980s, include claims that the MP had been arrested for indecency in a public place with a minor – during which he is said to have assaulted the arresting officers.
It is claimed the MP had performed political favours for the owner of a brothel in his constituency in which men consorted with underage males.
The Conservative MP also made further allegations about drink-driving, assault and corruption involving the Labour MP.
A BBC News team, headed by a journalist who specialises in reporting on sex abuse crimes, is also understood to have had access to the information. The team, which has been granted significant resources by bosses, has already started interviewing potential witnesses about the MP. Director-general Tony Hall has been made aware of the special project.
Keith Vaz is good friends with The Purdews of Champneys – and the Purdews were good friends with Jimmy Savile.

Stephen Purdew… is certainly close to Keith Vaz, the prominent Labour politician who enjoys being in the company of rich men and is not himself a stranger to allegations of sleaze.
Keith Vaz, speaker John Bercow and Champneys’ Stephen Purdew
Mr Bercow is regarded as being on warm terms with Mr Vaz.
Sarah Westcott, a young journalist at the Press Association, went out with John Bercow a few times in 2000. He was nearly 40 at the time, yet seemed more like a clumsy schoolboy than a middle-aged MP.
‘He was a bit funny with women. One night, I kissed him on the cheek and he was terrified.’
The lack of a girlfriend was becoming a curse, as local associations tended to look favourably on those who were married or at least had a respectable girlfriend to help with fund-raising coffee mornings.
Not wanting to lose out, Bercow came up with a solution: he borrowed other people’s girlfriends or co-opted friends to take along to selection meetings.
One friend was so confused by the fake girlfriends that, to this day, he believes Bercow is gay.
Lord Tebbit was John Bercow’s hero.
Norman Tebbit admits he heard rumours top Tory was paedophile a decade before truth revealed
Norman Tebbit admitted he had been told Sir Peter Morrison was a paedophile more than a decade before the truth about the notorious Tory was exposed.
Background on Bercow:
At 18 Bercow became secretary of the Monday Club when it favoured bans on coloured immigration and “properly financed voluntary repatriation”.
Bercow became national chairman of the ultra-right Federation of Conservative Students in 1986, a year after it disgraced itself by indulging in riotous vandalism at Loughborough.
The 12-year-old John Bercow appeared on the BBC in Crackerjack in 1975.
Bercow’s father drove minicabs for a living and John Bercow went to Finchley Manorhill comprehensive school in north London.
(A bizarre 50-year feud started when his father, Charlie, and his uncle Samson – Alan Bercow‘s father – fell out over the ownership of the family minicab company in Finchley, North London. The feud between John Bercow’s father, Charlie, and Alan Bercow’s father, Samson, dates back to the 1950s and involved a successful minicab company in Finchley, North London, set up by Charlie.)
Bercow’s paternal grandfather, Jack Bercowitch, was from Romania who worked first as a gas fitter and then as a furrier, and in due course opened a shop.
Two of his sons, Ralph and Charlie, set up a business called Bercow Motors, in Warren Street in central London, which prospered until the late 1960s, when the council painted yellow lines on the road outside their showroom. Charlie Bercow married Brenda Bailey, a legal secretary and in 1963 she gave birth to their son, John Simon Bercow.
John Bercow and his Monday Club colleagues:
Bercow joined not only the Young Conservatives but the Monday Club, where very soon he was promoting the voluntary repatriation of immigrants.
The Monday Club had various study groups including:
Immigration and Repatriation:
notable chairmen being George Kennedy Young* CB, MBE; Harvey Proctor MP; Jonathan Guinness; (John Bercow, now an MP and Speaker of the House of Commons, was committee secretary 1981-82);
George Kennedy Young
John Mann said Monday Club member “ George Kennedy Young was ‘key’ to paedophile claims”
Labour MP said GK Young, ex-deputy director of MI6 took part in ‘dubious’ activities
Mann added Mr Young was a ‘manipulator’ who controlled groups of people within which there were paedophile rings in the 1970s or 1980s.
In a Westminster Hall debate, Mr Mann said Mr Young, who died in 1990, had been named in the first line of the document.
He said: ‘This is an original, I have spoken and met and got a copy from the person who personally handed it to Geoffrey Dickens who then personally gave it to Leon Brittan.
‘And what it says is, first line – GK Young heads up a Powellite faction known as Tory Action. GK Young, George Kennedy Young, was deputy director of MI6 in the past, long dead.
‘The allegations are that he manipulated a group of people and that within that there were paedophile rings. And it goes into detail – who it’s alleged were involved and where.
‘I won’t give all the locations because some would be I think sensitive and would potentially identify people – but London is one, Greater Manchester is another, North Yorkshire is a third one.’
Mr Mann said GK Young may be key in finding out what happened to the dossier.

Gordon Anglesea trial:
A police commissioner has told a jury that he used to drive a senior officer, Gordon Anglesea, accused of sexually abusing boys to Bry Estyn children’s home.
He used to give Anglesea lifts in a police vehicle when asked. He said: “The only place I recall taking him was to Bryn Estyn children’s home. If he wanted to go to Bryn Estyn he would ask me and I would take him.”

Conservative Sir Gerald Howarth, defence minister until 2012, has mounted an extraordinary defence of a Tory MP who organised a Nazi-themed stag do – saying he was the victim of a ‘disgraceful witch hunt’.
And he tried to justify the MP’s involvement in such a distasteful event, claiming ‘we’ve all done it’.

Councillor John Bercow of Lambeth
Bercow served as the youngest ever deputy leader of the Tory group in Lambeth.
There’s another reason why Scotland Yard were so keen to close the investigation down.
In November 1997 the South London Press ran a story about a ‘sex chamber’ hidden in the basement of Lambeth Police Station with bedding, a red light, and a manacle. Was Lambeth Police Station being used by the paedophile ring to abuse children and produce child pornography?
The Mirror have reported on the cover-up of an investigation of a paedophile ring in Lambeth council children’s homes. It’s suspected that the reason for the cover-up was the involvement of politicians, including at least one MP.
Lambeth District Housing Office is next door to Lambeth Police Station!
Bercow gave up a political lobbying job with the Tories’ favourite ad agency, Saatchi and Saatchi, to work for Jonathan Aitken, after previously spending a brief period in the City, working as a merchant banker for Hambros.
After Aitken was jailed for perjury and perverting the course of justice, and he was forced to resign as a cabinet minister,
Bercow went to work for Virginia Bottomley, by then National Heritage Secretary, moving on at the 1997 election when her career as minister ended and he began his as an MP.
Peter Bottomley’s brother Henry was a Lambeth councillor at the same time as John Bercow (1986-90) and Virginia Bottomley worked at Maudsley Hospital (Brixton and Camberwell Child Guidance Units) as psychiatric social worker 1973-84 and was chairman of Lambeth Juvenile Court 1981-84
Peter Righton was a founder of PIE, Napier its one-time treasurer. Righton, incredibly, was also one of Britain’s leading child protection specialists when Virginia Bottomley was Health Secretary
Sir Peter, who is married to the former Conservative Cabinet minister Virginia Bottomley, told Radio Four’s Today programme that people were also now wrongly suggesting that he may have visited the Elm Guest House, in Barnes, south-west London, which is at the centre of some of the current claims.
The Elm Guest House is alleged to have been the scene of paedophile activity and sex parties attended by politicians and other prominent figures in the 1970s and 1980s. Visitors are said to have included the late Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith.
Back to Peter Bottomley’s fellow Monday Club member John Bercow…
Like his friend Keith Vaz, Bercow also married late in life

Other Monday Club members – John Remfrey Pinniger (far left) was a leading activist and political adviser in the right-wing Conservative Monday Club during the early 1980s
John R Pinniger – former Conservative councillor for Lambeth 1990
He was also a leading activist and political adviser in the right-wing Conservative Monday Club
Pinniger worked closely with the Conservative Member of Parliament Harvey Proctor, who was then Chairman of the Monday Club’s Immigration & Repatriation Committee.
He co-authored papers with Proctor including:
”Immigration, Repatriation, & the Commission for Racial Equality”, by Keith_Harvey_Proctor, M.P., John R. Pinniger, M.A., with a foreword by Sir Ronald Bell, Q.C., M.P., published by the Monday Club, 1981, (P/B).
Pinniger was a director, along with Derek Laud of
LUDGATE LAUD LIMITED
John Pinniger was a “research assistant” to Harvey Proctor MP and to Sir Charles Irving MP and Pinniger worked at Harrod’s menswear shop in between his parliamentary duties.
Clive Froggatt – Clive Froggatt, a leading physician in England, and a favorite of prime minister Margaret Thatcher and a very senior government health adviser to both Margaret Thatcher and John Major, was addicted to heroin, allegedly taking up to eight fixes a day.
…this is the doctor who has been a guru to a succession of former Health Secretaries including Ken Clarke,now Chancellor;
Virginia Bottomley, now Heritage chief;
and William Waldegrave – special advisor to Patrick Rock.
William Waldegrave, the health secretary, giving details of the two enquiries launched in the aftermath of the case, described Beck as evil. He said that the Commons had shown its support for Mr Janner.
Keith Vaz, Labour MP for Leicester East, condemned the ”cowardly attacks” on Mr Janner. Michael Latham, Tory MP for Rutland and Melton, said that Mr Janner had been the target of ”vile allegations and lies”.
As Beck was sentenced, William Waldegrave, the former health secretary announced two inquiries. One would investigate the selection of staff in Britain’s children’s homes. The other, chaired by Andrew Kirkwood QC which is reporting today, would find out why staff at one of Britain’s biggest social services departments failed to act on warnings which would have lead them to the discovery of a catalogue of abuse. Allegations of physical and sexual abuse were first made in 1980 – seven years after Beck started working as an officer in charge of a children’s home. They continued over the next six years, from children and social workers, and on four different occasions were passed on to police. After one investigation, police charged Beck with assault. However, he was subsequently acquitted after a crown court trial in 1982. Despite these allegations, Beck continued working at The Beeches, Leicester Forest East, where he had been officer in charge since 1978. He had spent the previous five years working at The Poplars – a home in Market Harborough – before moving to Ratcliffe Road children’s home. He eventually resigned in 1986 after he was suspended following an allegation of sexual harassment by a fellow member of staff. However he was given references which enabled him to take jobs with Brent and Hertfordshire social services. He also worked with charities.
Froggatt also worked on a Tory health service think-tank with MP David Willetts, who was forced to resign for trying to nobble a Commons committee probing sleaze.
Froggatt, an advisor”on heroin movie Eyes Wide Shut starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, publicly claims he is now “clean”.
When arrested, he claimed he was using the drug as a painkiller for his close friend and Tory MP for Cheltenham Sir Charles Irving, who he said was dying of AIDS
Froggatt was brought into the Conservative fold in 1983 by Sir Norman Fowler and quickly became an adviser to the powerful Downing Street policy unit.
He developed a close friendship with Virginia Bottomley and frequently dined at her house.
Froggatt even told friends that he advised her on everything from how she enters a room to how she does her hair.
Ken Clarke once asked him to stand in for him at an Oxford Union health deb
When he had an idea, he rang Tory ministers and they listened.

Lady Diana Mosley (1910-2003) was one of the daughters of Lord Redesdale, and had the reputation of being the most beautiful and dazzling of the ‘Mitford girls’. She married the heir to the Guinness company, Brian (later Lord Moyne), at the age of 18, but subsequently left him and then married the British fascist, Oswald Mosley. She was introduced to Hitler by her sister, Unity, and maintained a life-long admiration for him and his political beliefs.

Sir Charles Morrison was the brother of Peter Morrison, who became MP for Chester, while his sister, Dame Mary Morrison, has been a Woman of the Bedchamber to Queen Elizabeth II for over fifty years.
Sir Charles Morrison (1932–2005) sat as Conservative MP for Devizes from 1964 until 1992.
Sir Charles Morrison was one of the investors in the Proctor’s shirt shop Cottonrose in Richmond. MP Harvey Proctor,Tory MP for Basildon 1979-1983 and Billericay 1983-1987, was forced to resign following his activities involving a rent boy/spanking.
Sara Morrison, Charles Morrison’s wife has been described as Edward Heath’s friend and important political confidante and she was with him when he died.
The daughter of Viscount Lang and the Duchess of Marlborough, Sara Morrison was a director of the influential program, Fourth Channel TV, and one of the principal organizers of the Conservative Party, said to be a close confidante of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

The third son of John Granville Morrison, 1st Baron Margadale, was Sir Peter Morrison (1944 –1995), was Conservative MP for Chester from 1974 to 1992 and died aged 51 in 1995.
He was Margaret Thatcher’s parliamentary private secretary and deputy chairman of the Conservative Party.
In October 2012 it was alleged that evidence has been seen that linked Peter Morrison to the North Wales children’s homes case, in which up to 650 children in 40 homes were sexually, physically and emotionally abused over a 20 year period.
It has also been alleged that Sir Peter was protected …and that his behaviour was covered up by senior party members and the media.
Morrison is now named in connection with a fresh inquiry into these allegations, which could also implicate the late DJ and TV presenter Jimmy Savile.
John Morrison’s daughter, Dame Mary Morrison, was a Woman of the Bedchamber to Queen Elizabeth II for forty years.
2016 – Bercow is accused of a cover-up re: Keith Vaz
John Bercow is accused of a ‘cover up’ after a Tory MP called for Keith Vaz’s suspension ONE YEAR before rent boy claims surfaced
‘These events had all the hallmarks of an establishment cover-up.’
- Andrew Bridgen wrote to John Bercow to ensure Keith Vaz was suspended
- He didn’t want Vaz to be chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee
- But the Speaker refused and Mr Bridgen believes it was a ‘cover up’
Three weeks after Mr Bercow sent his letter, he was pictured with Mr Vaz in the directors’ box of Leicester City Football Club.
… a letter from John Bercow, the Speaker, warning Andrew Bridgen MP it would be “inappropriate” to raise allegations against Vaz in the Commons.
When Mr Vaz appeared in the Commons last Monday, the day after the scandal broke, he was called to speak twice by Mr Bercow in the chamber.
The following day Mr Bercow was seen giving Mr Vaz a pat on the back and leaning over to squeeze his wrist during a conversation in the Commons.

^ Wonder if Bercow charged for that? *innocent face*
As ever, the dots are all there – just need to be joined together. Start with the Bercow / McAlpine saga.
On 24 May 2013, the High Court of Justice ruled that her tweet, “Why is Lord McAlpine trending? *innocent face*”, was libelous. The two parties agreed to a settlement, and McAlpine donated the damages awarded to Children in Need.
In 2013, it was revealed McAlpine had owned the artwork of convicted paedophile Graham Ovenden – artwork that depicted naked children.

The Vaz saga is unfolding just as the Gordon Anglesea trial gets underway:
It all comes at the same time as Gordon Anglesea jury is sworn in at Mold – and Anglesea and Bryn go to the heart of much of this – and the westmonster links…
In December 1991 — eight months after Anglesea retired from the North Wales Police — the Independent On Sunday wrote about the police investigation into allegations of child abuse at the Bryn Estyn children’s home in North Wales.
The front page article stated:
“According to former residents of Bryn Estyn, Gordon Anglesea, a former senior North Wales police officer, was a regular visitor there.”
“He recently retired suddenly without explanation.”

- Then-Welsh Secretary Hague ordered an inquiry into the abuse in 1996

Operation Pallial was set up in response to allegations regarding Tory peer Lord McAlpine – that he had abused children in North Wales care homes.
RETIRED NORTH Wales Police superintendent Gordon Anglesea was arrested on suspicion of historic physical and sexual assaults against children in December 2013
Anglesea was detained at his Colwyn Bay home in December by officers of the National Crime Agency.
Anglesea was the 18th person to be arrested as part of Operation Pallial, based at North Wales Police headquarters.
A former police chief visited a house where youngsters were plied with drink before men “picked a boy they wanted”, a court has heard.
Boys were abused there, in a caravan or taken to the pub, jurors were told.
The witness described the house as a “centre of paedophile activity”
He said the property in Brymbo, Wrexham, was used by a paedophile ring.

Arfon Jones, the police and crime commissioner for north Wales, said he drove Gordon Anglesea to the Bryn Estyn children’s home in Wrexham.
Jones said he would not go into the home with Anglesea but just drop him off and carry on with the other duties that he had. He did not know how or when Anglesea would leave.
“I have no idea. I have no recollection of collecting him,” he said.

The Macur Review is an independent review, chaired by Lady Justice Macur, DBE. It’s a review of Sir Ronald Waterhouse’s inquiry into the abuse of children in care in the former Gwynedd and Clwyd council areas of North Wales between 1974 and 1996.
The Government have redacted, as we have heard, huge swathes of the Macur review, removing in particular the names of individuals who have been the subject of speculation and who have national recognition.
For example, the name Peter Morrison has been redacted from the report, but puzzlingly, other names—Greville Janner, Lord Gareth Williams—have not.
Mr David Jones (Clwyd West) (Con): If I may correct the hon. Gentleman, Peter Morrison’s name does appear in the body of the report. It is important that the hon. Gentleman clarifies that, because it is not redacted.
Ian C. Lucas: It appears in one part of the report, but it is also redacted in other parts of it. His name appears in the introduction, I believe, but in the part that relates to establishment figures, his name is redacted.
Mr David Jones: The point I was seeking to make is that his name is not wholly redacted, and since the hon. Gentleman is making a speech that covers very important matters, it is necessary to clarify that point.
Ian C. Lucas: I am grateful for that clarification, but in the chapter that relates to establishment figures, the two names that I referred to are not redacted, whereas Peter Morrison’s name is. It is very difficult to deduce a line of principle to see why someone made that decision. I think we need to have that information
Back to Vaz – his friends and “charity colleagues”…
^ Purdew, Bercow and Vaz
Keith Vaz and old friend Stephen Purdew of Champneys:
The silken-voiced Vaz and the rougher-sounding Purdew, who is worth in the region of £50 million, are old pals.
Cambridge-educated Vaz says their friendship goes back 20 years, and, indeed, it appears to have started after Purdew’s company took over Springs Hydro in Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire (Vaz is the MP for Leicester East).
It was soon publicised that Vaz was among those patronising the gymnasium. Vaz’s daughter Anjali was a bridesmaid when Purdew, 52, married blonde former model Isabele Cave, 30.
Purdew’s son by an earlier relationship, Robert, 19 — who recently did 10 days work experience in Vaz’s office — was best man.

Watchdogs facing calls to investigate if cash from Keith Vaz’s diabetes charity, Silver Star was used to pay for sex with rent boys
- Leicester East MP Keith Vaz set up diabetes charity Silver Star
- Two £150 deposits paid last month into account by man linked to charity
The charity says its funds were not used to pay the rent boys, but no one has explained why Mr Dragusin paid them.
An associate said Mr Vaz and the Romanian trusted each other. ‘It was always as if Keith was really looking after Daniel, not a normal employer-employee relationship,’ he told The Times. ‘They seemed to be quite close, put it that way, in the sense that Daniel was doing a lot of work for Keith, and Keith was looking after him.’
From 2008 to 2010 he worked as a chauffeur for Express Rent-a-Car. He later became Mr Vaz’s driver, and was occasionally allowed to borrow a ‘fancy car’, said the associate. ‘He was often driving Keith’s car when he was not on duty.
Silver Star deny this and have retained Carter Ruck, firing off letters to several newspapers complaining how unfair it is to have their name linked to this sordid affair. Carter Ruck usually charge £500 an hour. That’s a very expensive law firm for a relatively small charity…

Phone hacking: Keith Vaz links to Champneys spa, behind Metropolitan Police Commissioner Paul Stephenson resignation
Sir Paul Stephenson is likely to be grilled over his decision to accept hospitality at the Champneys health resort in Hertfordshire, and his connections to Neil Wallis, the spa’s former PR adviser and an ex-News of the World executive who was arrested over the phone hacking scandal last week.
Mr Vaz, the Labour MP for Leicester East, has a long-standing connection to the Purdew family, who own Champneys, including charitable and business links in addition to a close personal friendship.
Kerala Tourism will debut its ‘Your Moment Is Waiting’ global campaign at a red carpet event on Tuesday 21 September, at the Saatchi Gallery to a select audience of London glitterati, literati and business leaders
Dr Venu, Keith Vaz MP, busineman Stephen Purdew and Michelin chef Sriram Aylur
In one of its biggest marketing coups ever, Kerala Tourism unveiled its latest destination campaign film, Your Moment is Waiting, to a star studded audience at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
“It is a bold step for Kerala Tourism to launch the campaign in London to the world’s most sophisticated audience” by Keith Vaz MP
Dr Venu, Secretary, Kerala Tourism who played host to over 150 guests said it was fantastic to see so many celebrities taking the time to attend a Kerala event and endorsing the film.
The latest disclosure centres on Mr Vaz’s links to an exclusive new development in Kerala, southern India, called Eshta. The resort of premium villas and apartments, set in 60 acres of waterways and palm forests, describes itself as “a haven of luxury and decadence” for “the cream of society”.
The directors of the development project include Arjan and Mitesh Vekaria, brothers who own Vascroft Contractors Ltd, a company that worked on several state school building projects in London.
Celebrity endorsers of this monument to housing decadence for the “privileged few” are patrons of Keith Vaz’s very own healthcare charity, Silver Star Diabetes. Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan;
Mr Vaz and Dorothy Purdew, the owner of Champneys, have given testimonial endorsements for the 88-page Eshta development brochure. In the document, Mr Vaz praises the “super-quality” project as an example of the growing business potential of southern India, while Mrs Purdew is quoted as recommending Kerala as “the perfect escape”.
In January 2007, Mr Vaz launched the Silver Star Appeal, a diabetes campaign, which now has a branch in India and has become the Eshta project’s nominated charity. Donors to Silver Star can enter a competition for the chance to win a“lifetime” villa retreat at the resort.
The charity also has close ties with Champneys. Mrs Purdew is listed as a Silver Star patron and a new mobile diabetes assessment unit has been named “Dorothy” in her honour.
Mr Vaz is understood to have spent one night at Champneys after attending the engagement party of his friend, Stephen Purdew, co-owner of the spa. Mr Purdew is also godfather to one of Mr Vaz’s children, who is believed to have undertaken work experience in the MP’s office.
A spokeswoman for Mr Vaz said he has no financial connections to Eshta or its directors and had “never” received hospitality from the resort or visited Kerala.
He was a friend of Rajiv Ratna Gandhi – Prime Minister of India, serving from 1984 to 1989.

Gilberthorpe claimed he handed a 40-page dossier to Margaret Thatcher, in 1989, detailing Cabinet ministers who took part in the sex parties but says he was warned off by William Hague and a senior civil servant.

Jeremy Corbyn accused of inaction over paedophile scandal
23 Jul 2015
Labour MP John Mann says leadership contender Mr Corbyn “did nothing” about allegations of child abuse in Islington in 1980s
Jeremy Corbyn,the hard-left Labour MP who is tipped to lead the party, has been accused of “doing nothing” over child abuse in his constituency during the 1970s and 1980s.
Dozens of vulnerable children were raped and sexually abused in care homes run by the London borough of Islington.However most of the abusers escaped justice because allegations made at the time by victims were ignored and many files, which contained corroborating evidence, have been lost or shredded.
John Mann, a Labour MP, has sent Mr Corbyn an open letter in which he says that his failure to do more to tackle child abuse means it would be “inappropriate” for him to become Labour leader.
In his letter Mr Mann highlights how Liz Davies, a social worker turned whistleblower, visited Mr Corbyn in the early 1990s to raise concerns about paedophiles operating in Islington care homes. Mrs Davies told The Telegraph that she was “heartened” by the meeting, after which Mr Corbyn said he would raise her concerns with Virginia Bottomley, the then Health Secretary.
However she said that while Mr Corbyn has “always treated me very politely” he had not been vocal on the issue. “There’s plenty of scope for apologies and regrets,” she said.
Mr Mann also highlighted an official complaint Mr Corbyn made in the Commons about a visit Geoffrey Dickens, a Conservative MP who repeatedly attempted to expose child abuse, made to his constituency.
At the time he called on Mr Dickens to “unreservedly withdraw his allegations of the existence of child brothels in the area and make a public apology”.
He also highlighted a recent statement Mr Corbyn made in the Commons when said: “There have been complaints about Islington children’s homes in the past and the council has investgated them.”
He said that the statement was “extraordinary” as the council has been accused of suppressing allegations of child abuse in the past. Mr Mann said: “Your carefully worded excusing of Islington Council in the House of Commons equally demonstrates why it is inappropriate for you to attempt to lead the Labour party at the critical time of the
How did Henniker get his contract with Islington to run the children’s activity centre?
After Righton’s 1992 conviction, he and his partner Richard Alston were invited to stay at Lord Henniker’s estate in Eye, Suffolk. Righton lived there until his death in 1996. Lord Henniker’s estate was run as a ‘children’s activity centre’, and Islington council had been sending children there for years.
Henniker was Director of the British Council (1968-72).
Charles Napier joined the British Council after his 1972 conviction.
Peter Righton, Charles Napier and Richard Alston abused boys together.
Who was protecting Peter Righton; recommending him 4 key roles, writing his references & introductions?
Lady Henniker-Major, a past chairman of Suffolk County Council and former Liberal Democrat Parliamentary candidate
Leon Brittan’s friend, John Gummer (Baron Deben) was the Tory MP for Eye in Suffolk
Sir Peter Hayman’s connections to Save the Children and the International Students House were forged through his wife (not mother) Rosemary Blomefield. Sir John Henniker-Major’s wife Lady Henniker-Major was also ‘very active in the overseas relief and fundraising work of the Save the Children Fund and its Danish sister organisation Red Barnet.” Lord Gore-Booth (of Malty, West Ridings of York), a noted British diplomat and Chairman of The Save the Children Fund 1970 – 1976 wrote Lady Henniker-Major’s obituary.
Fury as child sex beast is FREED after court blunder
THE CROWN Prosecution Service has been slammed after a bid to extradite a dangerous paedophile to India over sex attacks on orphan kids failed.
Convicted sex abuser Raymond Varley, wriggled out of facing justice after two Appeal Court judges upheld an earlier decision that he was a “vulnerable individual” suffering the early onset of dementia.
But prosecutors failed to order their own health assessment of the beast – a key reason why he won his case.
And he is free to contact children and visit schools, nurseries, swimming pools, stay out at night and travel abroad now bail conditions have been scrapped.
Keith Vaz’s links to Varley are significant as they bring together Goa, Leicester and Islington.
Raymond Varley was an international trafficker. That’s why his phony dementia claim keeps him safe from extradition.
St George’s School
Kesgrave/Stowmarket: Inquiries into historic child abuse allegations at three former school
04 February 2013
THREE former Suffolk schools are now at the centre of criminal investigations into historic child abuse allegations.
The accusations, which relate to alleged physical and sexual assaults, are said to have occurred between the late 1970s and run through to the 1990s.
Oakwood School in Stowmarket – has said the number of claimants has reached three figures.
Kesgrave Hall independent school – The investigation, codenamed Operation Garford
Two other police inquiries involving the former St George’s School in Great Finborough, near Stowmarket, and Oakwood School are also continuing.
Operation Racecourse (St George’s) has been running since the late 2000s. It has led to the independent school’s ex-headmaster Derek Slade being jailed for 21 years in 2010 for sexual and physical abuse against pupils between the late 1970s and early 1980s.
CORBYN AND CHILD ABUSE
Senior Labour politician helped paedophile headmaster establish false identity
Keith Vaz and Jimmy Savile, two of the closest buddies of Purdew:
1982 Keith Vaz worked as solicitor for Richmond upon Thames Council (Operation Fernbridge) and for Islington (Operation Fairbank)
To child abuse campaigners, however, these are a smoking gun. For the first time they provide solid evidence that children from Islington’s homes in the 1970s were sent on trips to Jersey, in an exchange programme with children from the notorious Haut de la Garenne home, where widespread abuse took place.
Establishing that children from Islington were indeed sent to Jersey on exchange trips – as has long been claimed – is another piece of the jigsaw that creates a picture of a child abuse ring operating in the UK, with children passed around the country.
It has been established by many independent inquiries that child abuse took place in all of Islington’s 12 children’s homes during this period.
Islington Council has no official records that children in its homes in the 1970s and 80s were ever sent to Jersey on official visits, as all the documents have been destroyed.
Jimmy Savile with children at Haut de la Garenne
Among those who regularly visited the Haut de la Garenne home was the now-disgraced entertainer Jimmy Savile.
“Jimmy Savile often stayed in the same hotel as Ted Heath,” McGrath Goodman told the dpa news agency, adding that both men were alleged to have taken children from Haut de la Garenne.
I wonder if Lord Henniker’s estate, Thornham Magna, is the “large house in the country owned by a Lord” which Ronald Jebson mentioned in his confession about the South London luxury limousine company with ties to Westminster paedophiles which Sydney Cooke and Savile’s driver David Smith are also alleged to have worked for.
Lord Henniker has close links with the royal family:
Prince Philip is godfather to his first child.
“I couldn’t believe it when Ronnie started blabbing. He said he worked for a luxury limousine company on the south side of London. He said it was linked to the Westminster set, and claimed they had all sorts of posh cars, including Rolls Royces.
“He said the clients were all well-to-do, prominent people, including politicians, but said they were also paedophiles. Ronnie said many of the victims came from poor backgrounds.
“He said he often collected the children on a Friday and would take them to a large property in Surrey, to London addresses, or to a large house in the country owned by a Lord.“

Why did Keith Vaz protect Greville Janner?
In 1991 Janner’s name came up at the trial of a care worker who was accused of abusing boys in his care. The Judge in that case had bent over backwards to rule out evidence implicating Janner. In particular the Judge ruled out the accused’s statement in court that “One child has been buggered and abused for two solid years by Greville Janner.” Another witness also told the court that Janner “regularly sodomised” him when he was in care, aged 13.
In the House of Commons it was Keith Vaz MP who rose to assure fellow MPs that his old friend was “the victim of a cowardly and wicked attack.” In the same speech Vaz suggested the law be changed so that prominent people could not be accused in open court.
Now, of course, we know very different. The Greville Janner affair was dragged into the open in the face of tremendous official obstruction and indifference. When it finally exploded two years ago one jaw-dropping revelation followed another. It turned out that police investigations had been mysteriously derailed, three chances to prosecute had been missed, there had been love letters from Janner to one boy. A second judge even helped Janner in a cover-up. Dozens of former residents of Leicestershire homes for boys came forward to claim that they had been abused by Janner in a scandal that went back four decades.
This fresh scandal will bring a renewed focus on the accusations that swirled around the former president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews (Greville Janner) because of his connection to Keith Vaz.
It is widely known around Westminster that Vaz — who owes his career to Greville Janner — was the unidentified MP in this Sun front page from last year.
The headline on that Sun front page says “Top Labour MP is paedo” but does not name anyone.
This comes at a pretty unfortunate time for those in the political and legal establishment who wanted the Greville Janner affair buried and out of the way.
Lord Janner detective: We had proof to charge child sex politician 20 years ago… But top brass told us to stop
Blair, Mandelson, Daniel Janner, Bercow: Interesting that none of these people have come out in support of Keith Vaz.
Yes, indeed. The Janners have been distinctly quiet about the fate of their close friend Keith Vaz.

(2001) COMPLAINT AGAINST MR VAZ BY MR PAUL GOSLING
had spoken to Mr Alistair McKinnon, a press officer for a company called Ascot which had taken over a business previously trading as Control Securities plc. He added that Control Securities had been a shareholder and landlord of the failed bank, BCCI and that, as a result of the bank’s collapse, the chairman and chief executive of Control Securities, Mr Nazmu Virani, had been “convicted and imprisoned for false accounting.”
278. Mr Gosling said that, in his view, the information provided by Mr McKinnon raised three points of concern, namely:
- (i) whether Mr Vaz had entered his interest as “Control Ltd” instead of “Control Securities plc” in order to obscure the sensitive issue of the donor’s identity;
(ii) whether the item in the accounts of Control Securities plc “Mr K Vaz Election Fund” or Mr Vaz’s entry in the 1994 Register “Donation from Control Ltd in 1991 toward the cost of producing a Report/Bulletin for the Asian Community into the work of the Immigration and Nationality Department” was the correct description of the donation;
(iii) whether the donation to Mr Vaz from Control Securities plc led Mr Vaz to have a conflict of interest when he spoke in the House of Commons about the affairs of BCCI, particularly given Mr Vaz’s leading role in the campaign to secure payment of money owed by the bank to small shareholders and creditors.
…Mr Gosling replied on 29 May 2000 (Annex 9), saying that he did not think it correct to say that it would be easy to identify Control Securities Ltd from the tag “Control Ltd,” and that, whilst people within the company might have known it by that name, the general public did not. He maintained that an improper financial relationship between Control Securities Ltd and BCCI had been demonstrated by the conviction of Mr Virani for false accounting in relation to transactions between the two companies. He added that Mr Vaz should therefore have disclosed his own financial interest in Control Securities Ltd

Revealed: the asylum tycoon
5 October 2004
A multi-millionaire is at the centre of an inquiry into a missing three-year-old boy. Joginder Sanger and his family own the hotel where Rossi Matuvovo disappeared, in a case that has raised new fears about child trafficking in London. Scotland Yard has no idea where the boy has gone.
Inquiries by the Evening Standard have revealed that the owners of the Thornecliffe Hotel were paid an astonishing £4 million of taxpayers’ money last year to house asylum seekers at their bleak 400-room establishment.
It is a world away from the lifestyle enjoyed by the Sanger family, who have a 4.5 million home in Hampstead, with two Mercedes, a convertible Jaguar and a Lexus four-by-four in the drive. The hotel is a cornerstone of the Sangers’ business empire.
The family also own the four-star Washington Hotel in Curzon Street, Mayfair.
Sunita Sanger, a director of the family company, told the Standard she was not concerned with the missing boy’s welfare. She said: “How am I supposed to keep track of every single little thing that happens down there? I am not interested.“
The family reported more than 11million gross profit from three main businesses – the Thornecliffe, the Washington and property interests.
Yet their holding company, Mastcraft Ltd, has paid no tax in Britain for the past two years despite an income of 19million last year. Challenged by the Standard to discuss his business and the case of the missing boy, Mr Sanger refused to comment and ignored numerous phone calls.
“Joginder Sanger is a prominent social worker deeply involved in fund raising activities of a large number of charitable, social and religious organisations.”
2009: Romanian MP Marian Florian Săniuţă invited to UK seminar on HUMAN TRAFFICKING by Keith Vaz
A gang of Romanian gipsy child-snatchers stole almost 200 poor children from their families and brought them to Britain to pick pockets, a court heard.

The leaders of the group are identified in the court documents as Constantin Radu, Nicolae Schian, Tase Dumitru – nicknamed “Chinezul The Chinese”, Mircea Niculae and Gheorghe Ion Dragusin. (related?)
Project Spade –
November 14, 2013
Police allege Brian Way, 42, had been running an “exploitation movie, production and distribution company” called Azov Films since 2005, and had made more than $4-million from the business.
Through his company, the man would allegedly contract people to create child porn videos involving kids, largely boys, between the ages of five and 12. Many of those videos were allegedly shot in Ukraine and Romania
Many of the site’s bestselling videos focus on a group of young boys in Eastern Europe. Police ultimately determined they were in Romania and Ukraine — and that they were being exploited for profit. The Romanian children were recruited from karate schools across the northern region of the country.
“Parents were being told their kids were going on karate trips, and they were being allowed to drink, do drugs, watch pornography and have naked videos made of them,” says Belanger.
A Project Spade – global investigation into buying and selling child abuse images online has led to 13 arrests and 11 convictions in Wales, a BBC investigation has found.
The NCA has referred itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) over its own delays in relation to Project Spade, while referrals from other forces are currently being assessed by the police watchdog body.
North Wales Police’s handling of its cases is also being looked at by the IPCC. The force was given the names of three possible paedophiles by the NCA but did not act on them for a year.
Keith Vaz : “Pigskin”, “Juicy”, a gay reality TV star and another former aide, Dan Irimia.
10 Sept 2016
Last night it appeared that the MP’s links with various Romanians may have played a central role in his downfall..
They include his Romanian personal assistant Daniel Dragusin, who paid the rent boys, and Mr Dragusin’s flatmate Maria Costache, who worked at the London hotel where Mr Vaz met another young man, as well as fellow Romanians known as “Pigskin” and “Juicy” and a gay reality TV star.
The 29-year-old — nicknamed Pigskin by friends back home — was also used by Mr Vaz as a chauffeur.
Mr Dragusin’s flatmate Maria Costache is an executive at London’s four-star Washington Mayfair hotel and is
also the sole director of D&M London Cleaning Services, where Mr Dragusin and his father Marcel have worked in recent years.
Just three weeks ago Mr and Mrs Vaz flew to Romania where he was a godfather — a traditional role in Romanian weddings — when another former aide, Dan Irimia, got married.
Mr Irimia’s name has appeared in the official House of Commons register of members’ interests as Mr Vaz’s “researcher” or “secretary”.
Another guest was the bride’s brother Ciprian Serban, nicknamed “Suculet” or Juicy in his home town, as well as bisexual reality TV star and model Bogdan Vladau. He too has moved to London.
- Silver Star employee Daniel Dragusin paid for Keith Vaz’s rent boys
- Vaz founded the diabetes charity in 2007. He first met Dragusin in 2010
- The organisation then employed Dragusin, even though he had no apparent experience in either the charity or the medical sector
- Silver Star has refused to comment how Dragusin came to join its payroll
Why did a diabetes charity decide to employ a chum of Keith Vaz who had no apparent experience in either the charity or the medical sector?
Dragusin studied car mechanics at technical college in Transylvania. He’d worked largely as a chauffeur since coming to the UK in his mid-20s. His only other professional work (aside from assisting Vaz) was in the construction trade — helping out his father and brother, who run a London building company.
Silver Star charity – Its finances are equally mysterious. The organisation’s last published accounts, for the 12 months to December 31, 2014, show that it spent £160,680 during the course of the year. However, only nine per cent — £14,968 — was ‘direct charitable expenditure’.
Of the remaining £145,000, some £21,377 was spent on ‘fundraising’, while £10,381 went on publishing its ‘Globe newsletter’ — which is often festooned with images of Mr Vaz. A total of £81,990, was spent on ‘wages’.
It’s a similar story during each one of the four years for which records are available. During that period, Silver Star has spent £393,099, of which just 11.8 per cent, or £46,052, was ‘direct charitable expenditure’.
Over the same period, a greater sum appears to have been spent on ‘fundraising’. It adds up to £78,573.
Perhaps most intriguing, in the context of Dragusin, is the fact that Silver Star’s ‘wages’ bill has increased dramatically in the years during which he has been involved. In 2011, it was £52,329. In 2012, the year he joined, it went up to £60,789. By 2013 it was £70,176 and in 2014 it was £81,990. At least some of this cash is presumably finding its way into the Romanian aide’s pockets by way of a salary.
Keith Vaz and Daniel Dragusin
Mystery of mechanic who became aide at heart of Vaz sex scandal
The man who allegedly paid £150 to Keith Vaz’s male escorts has been working as the MP’s chauffeur and personal assistant.
A woman, Maria Costache, Mr Dragusin’s flatmate is an executive at London’s four-star Washington Mayfair hotel, living at the same address as the assistant works at the hotel (The Washington Mayfair) where leaked CCTV footage yesterday showed the Labour MP Keith Vaz meeting a young man.
Both of them have enjoyed rapid rises after coming to Britain. Mr Dragusin even served as a parliamentary assistant…
Keith Vaz, the charity worker and the mystery of their trips to India
7 September 2016
Keith Vaz travelled to Goa in India with the Romanian charity worker and parliamentary aide alleged to have paid two male prostitutes on the Labour MP’s behalf.
A photograph published on the Facebook page of Daniel Dragusin shows the Romanian sitting on a beach in Goa with a plastic bag emblazoned with the Portcullis emblem of the Houses of Parliament at his feet.
The photograph is stamped with a February 13, 2011 date
Dragusin is listed on his LinkedIn page as Silver Star’s London coordinator and states that he began working for the diabetes charity in April 2012.
Mr Vaz, was there at the same time, according to his own website and local newspaper reports, meeting prominent Indian politicians and visiting the Silver Star charity which he founded and for which Mr Dragusin works
The charity has refused to say whether Mr Vaz recommended him for the post. But in 2012 and early 2013, Dragusin is also listed as a parliamentary aide to Lord King of West Bromwich, a good friend of Mr Vaz.
The unpaid role entitled Mr Dragusin to a parliamentary pass allowing him unfettered access to the Palace of Westminster.
On Wednesday a close friend and parliamentary aide of Lord King, Robert Page said he had no recollection of Mr Dragusin ever working for the Labour peer.
Roger Page, was Lord King’s parliamentary aide from 1999, when he was ennobled, to his death from a heart attack in January 2013.
Lord King’s daughter(-in-law), Nishpal, said she also could not recall Mr Dragusin working for her father
Other photographs on 31-year-old Mr Dragusin’s Facebook page show him on the House of Commons terrace with Mr Vaz in August 2011, about eight months before he started working with Silver Star.
Subsequent photographs show Mr Dragusin in the House of Commons with Patrick Viera, the World Cup winning French footballer in November 2011 at a parliamentary function.

Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira added: “The wellbeing of children and young people is so important and that’s why ChildLine’s work is vital as it gives youngsters a platform to discuss and overcome their problems.”
In May 2010, Vieira was nominated Goodwill Ambassador of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
As recently as April this year, Mr Dragusin posts from the King Power stadium where he watched Leicester City, the team of Mr Vaz’s constituency, play West Ham.
The newspaper alleges that on August 24 this year, a bank account nominated by the two male escorts received a deposit of £150 from Mr Dragusin’s account.
The money was paid 24 hours after Mr Vaz, the former Home Affairs select committee chairman who has resigned from the role, had agreed to pay £150 for a night with the men.
Murdered Hindu priest led ‘double life’
Keith Vaz, the MP for Leicester East, had known Mr Purohit for 15 years
24 Oct 2000
Harish Purohit, 42, a “flamboyant” priest and the president of the Hindu Federation and Secretary of the National Association of Hindu Priests. :
Mr Purohit, a part-time care worker, was last seen on Thursday at 11pm when he left home in the Belgrave district of Leicester for a night out, driving his silver BMW 320i car
Mr Purohit was sometimes known for his outspoken views and was an associate of Keith Vaz, the Labour MP for Leicester East. He worked in social services at Leicester city council until 1998 and since then had been unit manager for a day centre in Milton Keynes, Bucks, working part-time with adults with learning difficulties.
Dean Riddell jailed for life at Nottingham crown court for the murder. He said Purohit tried to rape him.
In the 1990s Vaz intervened on behalf of a Nigel Philpot-Jones who ran the ‘rent boy’ scene in Leicester
Reading this, I have a distinct feeling that Philpot-Jones had enough dirt on Vaz to blackmail him into helping him!
Police reportedly investigating claims Keith Vaz threatened council worker who tried to evict a rent boy pimp
12 Sept 2016
Shamed Labour MP Keith Vaz allegedly told housing chief he would make his life ‘impossible’ unless pimp was allowed to keep his home – despite not paying £1,400 rent
The disgraced Labour MP intervenedwhen gay brothel owner Nigel Philpot-Jones was booted out of his Leicester council flat 25 years ago for rent arrears.
Ex-councillor Paul Gosling told The Sun he was quizzed by police in March about the MP’s behaviour in the early 1990s.
He said: “On many occasions Keith Vaz interfered with the running of the council in ways that breached his responsibilities as an MP.
“In particular I was unhappy about his involvement in reversing the decision to evict Nigel Philpot Jones, who had not paid his rent and was also operating a gay brothel in breach of the council’s clear rules on tenancy.
Vaz had been brought into the eviction row by his friend Philip Taylor, son of a former mayor of Leicester and himself homosexual. Mr Taylor was also a friend of Philpot-Jones.
Mr Gosling also claimed the MP (Vaz) was believed to have been a regular visitor to the Philpot-Jones council block address. Philpot-Jones was involved with procuring male prostitutes
David Anthony Taylor
a very devoted politican as the councillor for the Braunstone ward for 35 years, his first love was music and he was a professional entertainer in the 50’s and 60’s touring in clubs throughout europe.He married our mum Margaret Batty on 18th December 1965 at St Matthew’s Church, Leicester.He devoted a lot of time to voluntary work and served on the committees of many local charities.
In 1989 he was the Lord Mayor of Leicester and although they had been divorced for over 10 years, our mum Margaret was his Lady Mayoress. He later said that this was one of the best years of his life and together with meeting the Queen, Princess Margaret and the Duke and Duchess of Kent, he was able to host a reception for the athletes from the special olympics that were held in Leicester that year.
Died: September 1996 aged 55 (Labour Party)
Dave Taylor was first elected for North Braunstone ward in 1971 and became a County Councillor for the same ward in 1974. He was an active in the field of Social Services. In 1978, a charge of indecency was brought against him, though he was found not guilty. His political career survived and he became Lord Mayor 1989.
Because of his links to the world of entertainment, he was known as the showbiz mayor, as he had worked as a cabaret singer and dancer. Eventually, his drinking took a toll on his health.

On This Day: 25 Years Ago
February 25, 2014 (1989)
Leicester’s next Lord Mayor, 48-year-old David Taylor, has chosen the woman he divorced 10 years ago to be his Lady Mayoress, it was revealed this afternoon.
Mr Taylor has remained friendly with his ex-wife, Margaret.
He has spent the last 20 years in showbusiness and says: “We are civilised people and are still good pals. We go out together quite often.”
Mrs Taylor, the manageress of the electronic message service Air Call, in Leicester, was in London today and unavailable for comment.
Mr Taylor – who is
He was, until recently, the marketing director for a Leicester night spot, Starlight 2000, and made his debut in the world of entertainment at the age of 12, at the Aylestone and District Club.
He hit the headlines when, as 18-year-old David Anthony, in 1958, he appeared on TV’s Bid For Fame talent show as a vocalist. By then, he had made a name for himself in Leicester’s working men’s clubs.
Mr Taylor, who lives in Nutfield Road, Leicester, has represented North Braunstone since 1971.

Allegations Keith Vaz intervened in eviction of council tenant suspected of running brothel probed by cops
11 Sept 2016
Police are investigating whether disgraced Labour MP Keith Vaz had links to an alleged brothel owner.
Officers were probing claims Vaz intervened in the eviction of a tenant suspected of providing “the services of young men for other men”, according to a witness who has given a police statement.
They are examining potential abuse of office and personal misconduct dating to 1991, when a witness complained about Mr Vaz’s attempt to overturn the council eviction, it was reported.
Former Labour city councillor Paul Gosling, who has given police a statement, said Nigel Philpot-Jones ran a suspected brothel at a council block, Oriel House.
It is not known whether Mr Vaz was aware of this, but Mr Gosling said he acted in a bullying, inappropriate manner in trying to get Mr Philpot-Jones’s eviction, over unpaid rent, reversed.

The main thing to note right now is Keith Vaz’s links to Nadhmi Auchi; couple this with the fact that Auchi was also pivotal in Barack Obama‘s rise to power.
1. The very conservative Lord Norman Lamont worked for, or at least with, Nadhmi Auchi.
2. Lamont also chaired Le Cercle.
3. Auchi is one of only a hundred people who attends high-level meetings of Le Cercle.
4. Auchi also funneled millions of dollars to the then-unknown Barack Obama — who, with amazing rapidity, rose to become president of the United States.
LE CERCLE WAS A PRIMARY MECHANISM FOR ARRANGING EVENTS THAT LED TO 9/11
Keith Vaz was a director of the company General Mediterranean Holdings’ owned by the Anglo-Iraqi billionaire Nadhmi Auchi, who had in the past hired British politicians Lord David Steel and Lord Norman Lamont as directors.

Grindr/paedophile rings/chemsex child porn parties/St Benedict’s School/Vaz
A recording appears to show Mr Vaz speaking to them, telling the escorts ‘Bring poppers’ … ‘we need to get this party started’ and tells them to ‘look on Grindr’.
Grinder was the site used by convicted paedophile Peter Allott of St Benedict’s School. (Chris Patten, Laurence Soper etc)
Deputy head at a prestigious Catholic school, Peter Allott spent his weekends at chemsex child porn parties with paedophiles he met on Grindr, a court heard. He spent up to £600 a week on Class A drugs and was addicted to child sex images whilst teaching at St Benedict’s School.
Judge Peter Hillen said: It was at the drug parties that you became aware of, and addicted to, indecent images of children. I use the phrase of a PAEDOPHILE RING, that’s precisely what that was.
Paedophile Peter Allott left for a year in 2011 to work as a research associate for a project on the Prime Minister David Cameron’s “Big Society” initiative and Catholic social teaching at Cambridge University.
Michael Shaw, for the prosecution, said: “In interview he stated he engaged seeking homosexual company through an online dating site called Grindr which involved him meeting other men who engaged in taking Class A drugs, normally crystal meth.
In order to attract them he would raise the question of child abuse. If they expressed an interest he offered to show them images he had.
On the hard drive he had a selection of images of different sexes and ages he showed prospective partners on the basis it would arouse them.
Allott admitted possessing 25 “grossly offensive” images on a hard drive and sharing them with other offenders on the Zoom photo and video sharing programme.
Scandal-hit St Benedict’s School and its linked Benedictine monastery, Ealing Abbey, were also condemned in 2011 for a “lengthy and cumulative failure” to protect pupils after five monks and three former teachers were linked to child abuse.
Former Conserative Colwyn Bay councillor John George Reaney , 50, of Llanelian Heights, Old Colwyn, accused of sexual activity with a boy of 14.

Bank job that opened the door on a royal sex scandal
- 16 Feb 2008
- Updated 2 Feb 2012
…as they tunnelled into the vault of the Baker Street branch of Lloyds Bank, they had no idea they were about to spark a secret service cover-up and claims of a royal sex scandal.
Despite massive interest in the crime, details about the loot and the criminals responsible were immediately suppressed by MI5 and senior government officials.
Speculation quickly arose that compromising sexual photographs of the Queen’s sister, the late Princess Margaret, had been uncovered in the bank vault. It was rumoured they had been stashed away by well-known underworld figure Michael X. A drug dealer and Black Power leader, he was convicted of murder and hanged in Trinidad in 1975. A government file on him will remain closed until 2054.
The Mirror can for the first time reveal that Fleet Street editors of the day were approached directly by senior government officials and told to drop the story.
The four men caught, charged and convicted of the raid went to jail without ever having their names mentioned in the press, and to this day their identities and the circumstances of their capture remain secret. Even the lengths of their sentences are still shrouded in mystery.
Now, one of the men, in his 70s, has spoken to the Mirror from his home in Europe. The ex-gang member said he was terrified to discover one box belonged to the-then head of the judiciary.
Closed for 100 years FOI decision date 2015
Former lord chancellor Quintin Hogg (right) with Edward Heath, prime minister, and Margaret Thatcher, education and science secretary.
He said: “It was owned by Quintin Hogg, the Lord Chancellor.
When we opened it we dropped it on the floor like it was a time bomb. We didn’t want to take anything that might give us extra trouble so we left it. All we wanted was cash and jewels.”
But the gang didn’t have time to go through all of the stash and ended up taking some sensitive material.
The ex-raider, who refused to be identified, said last night: “When we got out we realised we had a lot more than we’d bargained for.”
At the time of the robbery, in September 1971, Princess Margaret’s marriage to the Earl of Snowdon was in its final stages.
In the 60s and 70s she was known to party hard on the Caribbean island of Mustique, where she was famously pictured with lover Roddy Llewellyn, a landscape gardener 17 years her junior.
She is said to have taken snaps of male friends frolicking naked but it is not known if any were ever taken of her. Asked whether he thought pictures might have existed, her cousin Lord Snowdon said recently: “I’d have thought it unlikely.”
But when we asked the ex-raider he refused to deny the rumours. He said: “I can’t talk about that. But we did find a lot of guns.
And what was most disturbing was the child pornography we found.
We were disgusted and left it in their open boxes so police could trace the owners.”
Misc -Quintin Hogg’s daughter
Dame Justice Hogg stunned experts and ignored pleas from social services when she handed little Ellie Butler back to her parents
Dame Mary Claire Hogg, comes from a famous legal and political dynasty; she is the daughter of former Lord Chancellor Lord Hailsham and sister of former agriculture minister and fellow QC Douglas Hogg.
Dame Mary Claire Hogg, DBE (15 January 1947), is a British lawyer and former High Court judge. She is the daughter of Quintin Hogg, Baron Hailsham of St Marylebone and his wife, Mary Evelyn Martin, and is the sister of Douglas Hogg.
…she has been a High Court judge in the Family Division since 1995 and was a member of the council of the Children’s Society for five years before that.
1990 – 1995 Church of England’s Children Society Home Office*
She retired from the High Court in 2016, 6 days prior to the beginning of the trial of Ben Butler for killing his daughter, whom she had previously exonerated despite advice from his local council not to.
Butler employed the dubious services of the now disgraced PR guru, Max Clifford
Oct 2012: Lady Justice Hogg Delivers Bombshell Judgment
The language of the judgment was so gushingly in favour of Butler that sources at the local authority admitted to being “shocked”, particularly at the suggestion that there could have been an “innocent explanation” for what had happened to Ellie.
Brushing his lengthy criminal record, including a number of convictions for violence aside, the judge commented on how impressed she had been by him.
She even commented on the fact that none of his convictions for violent behaviour had been directed towards children.
The judge stated: “He came through as a reflective, thoughtful individual, who at times over-reacts through frustration.
Mrs Justice Hogg appointed a team of independent social workers from a company called Services for Children to assess whether it would be safe for Ellie to return and to manage the transition.
Gray has now been found guilty of child cruelty following an eight-week trial at the Old Bailey in which her abusive partner, Ben Butler, was convicted of murdering their little girl.
Gray was a graduate of the famous Brit School in Croydon which produced the likes of Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis and Adele.
As a teenager, she had minor roles in EastEnders, The Bill and Silent Witness before carving out a career as a graphic designer.
Disappeared British girl Madeleine McCann was made a ward of court, during summer 2007, on application by her parents.
During a court hearing on 7 July 2008 Hogg made an extraordinary plea to Madeleine’s abductor to “show mercy and compassion” and reveal her whereabouts.
Mrs Justice Hogg, who has effectively been Madeleine‘s legal guardian since her parents applied for her to be made a ward of court last year, said she had excused the McCanns from attending the hearing because “they have suffered enough and I wished to ease their burden”.
Dame Mary Claire Hogg, – Her great-grandfather another Quintin Hogg, was an English philanthropist who had an interest in homeless boys, remembered primarily as a benefactor of the Royal Polytechnic institution at Regent Street, London, now the University of Westminster
In Ragged School annals appear the names of Quintin Hogg, Dr. Barnardo, Tom Hughes, General Gordon, and Professor Leone Levi. The Barnardo Homes grew directly out of the Ragged School movement, as did Quintin Hogg’s Polytechnic …

Revealed: The wealthy £40,000 Labour donor who is Sally Bercow’s Westminster drinking pal
- Speaker John Bercow’s wife was photographed at an awards ceremony
- She was accompanied by a mystery female companion
- Mail on Sunday can reveal she is Farah Sassoon
- Mrs Sassoon is Mrs Bercow’s best friend, and a businesswoman who has donated tens of thousands to the Labour party
The two are familiar figures in the watering holes of Westminster, where they have been seen drinking champagne until late at night.
She and her pal Farah Sassoon are enjoying the best seats in the house for the State Opening of Parliament.
Tory MP Rob Wilson said: ‘This raises further questions about the Speaker, but in particular his wife’s relationship with Farah Sassoon.
‘For her to be given such a lofty place at the State Opening of Parliament, mere days before she donates thousands to the Speaker’s re-election campaign, raises the spectre of past Parliamentary scandals.’
Mrs Sassoon had been granted a pass giving her access to the parliamentary estate two years before she made the donation
Mr Bercow said that the pass allowed Mrs Sassoon access to his grace-and-favour apartment overlooking the Thames.
While other visitors must go through stringent and lengthy airport-style checks to gain entry to the Palace of Westminster, Mrs Sassoon can walk straight in by showing her pass, just like MPs.
She is married to hotelier/Chartered Surveyor Peter Sassoon Munns. She has given more than £40,000 to Labour including a £4,200 donation to Ed Miliband’s leadership campaign in 2010.
She is listed as director of Trust Reservations, a conference and hotel booking agency, which made the donation to Mr Bercow.
One of its contracts is said to be arranging hotels for Labour delegates at its annual party conferences.
The company’s website boasts a picture of a Labour rally featuring deputy leader Harriet Harman and ex-union boss and Labour MP husband Jack Dromey.
Identified only as a ‘female companion’ of Mrs Bercow, Mrs Sassoon was photographed with her friend after they left an awards ceremony for gay magazine Attitude at the Royal Courts of Justice.
Since 2007, Trust Reservations has given more than £35,000 in cash and ‘staff costs’ to Labour.
In 2010, the company made a separate £4,200 donation to Mr Miliband’s leadership campaign.
Records show that the money was received three months after he was elected Labour leader.
A Labour spokesman declined to discuss the company’s business connections with the party.
Trust Reservations was launched in 1999 and is privately owned and fully independent.

David Morris MP tells Guido this morning that Farah Sassoon introduced herself to him on the Commons Terrace as ‘an adviser to Ed Miliband’ saying she advised the Labour leader ‘on all sorts of things’. Another Tory MP, speaking on the condition of anonymity for now, says that on a separate occasion Ms Sassoon claimed to be Sally Bercow’s agent. If this is true it adds a rather unsavoury commercial angle to why she has been allowed unfettered access to Parliamentary estate. Who is this mysterious character, and to what end is she really using this pass?
Whether she’s a friend, a Labour adviser, or Sally’s agent , the line from the Speaker that this is all dandy does not hold water. Crucially, Bercow’s spokesman dodged the question of whether proper advice was sought before he accepted a donation from this mysterious business woman. Even if there is an innocent explanation, as an example to all MPs, the Speaker must be whiter than white. Yet each day brings new questions…
Farah Sassoon former manager of Scarborough’s Royal Hotel:
She took over the Royal Hotel Scarborough in 1992 along with hotelier husband Peter Sassoon Munns. She banned Scarborough Council chiefs including John Trebble from the venue after being fined for food and hygiene offences. She also banned the Pindar printing family.

Last night ‘Red Len’ was mocked by a Tory MP for ‘living the high life’ while fellow trade unionists in the RMT were ‘crippling the country with strikes’.
The five-star Hotel de Paris, opened in 1863 and is one of the world’s most luxurious hotels, where the cheapest room is £450 a night.
The 66-year-old former docker spent Friday evening at the hotel’s world-famous Le Bar Américain, with a group of friends including a mystery socialite
The wine list includes a Jeroboam of Dom Perignon Rose champagne, vintage 2000, costing £12,800.
…a fellow drinker at the hotel’s bar suggested the mystery socialite in Mr McCluskey’s group was Farah Sassoon, a Labour donor who first came to public attention three years ago when she was pictured draping her leg across Sally Bercow’s lap in a cab on a night out.
Mr McCluskey has played a key role in propping up Jeremy Corbyn.
One of Mr McCluskey’s closest friends, Karie Murphy, is the director of Mr Corbyn’s office.
The mystery woman seen with ‘Red Len’ bears a striking resemblance to socialite businesswoman Farah Sassoon, who has given £40,000 to Labour
Farah Sassoon, pictured, has donated £6,000 to Tom Watson’s Labour deputy leadership campaign through her company, it has emerged
Tom Watson gets unlikely lift from ‘limo girl’ Farah Sassoon
Burly Tom Watson’s bid to replace Harriet Harman as Deputy Labour Leader – and therefore be the man to face George Osborne at Prime Minister’s Questions in David Cameron’s absence – has received a boost from an unlikely source.
Farah Sassoon, best known for her antics in a taxi after a night out with her drinking pal Sally Bercow, has donated £6,000 to his campaign through her company – thus lending a much-needed touch of glamour to the old bruiser.

Labour refused to release the full list of attendees – just days after it demanded David Cameron release a list of guests at a similar Tory event last week.

- Actor criticised Operation Yewtree investigation into historic abuse

“Tony Blair’s first major scandal involved Formula 1 billionaire and New Labour donor Bernie Ecclestone. The profits raised by Formula 1’s worldwide monopoly are often funnelled through companies headquartered on the Channel Islands. Ecclestone was worth $4.2 billion in 2011, which makes him the fourth richest person in the UK. Ecclestone transferred his Formula One assets to his wife Slavica in the 1990s and then to a family trust in Liechtenstein. Ecclestone said his tax bill would be about £1.2bn if he was shown to be involved in the trust.”
“In addition to Ecclestone, Stephen Glover in the Daily Mail reported that between 2001 and 2008, Labour accepted donations worth £8.9million from eight non-domiciled donors.
Labour donor Sir Gulam Noon (estimated worth £65 million in 2006), gave up his lucrative non-dom tax status to become Assistant Treasurer to the Labour Party in 2010. His fellow Assistant Treasurer, the late Nigel Doughty (estimated worth £130 million in 2011), was again from the private-equity industry, being the founder of Doughty Hanson & Co which manages over £8 billion in assets.
Labour’s largest donor was Lord David Sainsbury*, who had given a staggering £18 million pounds by 2012. He received his peerage from the party leadership that he had donated to and became a government minister for eight years, without having to stand for election.
Lord David Sainsbury, Vaz and Nadhmi Auchi
The anniversary bash held on 23 April 1999 is proving embarrassing for Labour. According to a glossy brochure published by Auchi for the occasion, a painting of the House of Commons was ‘presented by the British Prime Minister Tony Blair and signed by leaders of Her Majesty’s Opposition.’
The painting was in fact presented by the Science Minister, Lord Sainsbury. The Observer asked Lord Sainsbury’s office why he had presented such a potentially embarrassing gift on behalf of the Prime Minister. The answer: ‘He did it as a favour for Keith Vaz.’
Although the party was held before the French arrest warrant was issued, we have discovered that the intelligence services had long been aware of Auchi’s controversial and mysterious past to the extent of warning one former director about its concerns.
