Update

CourtNewsUK ‏@CourtNewsUK

Patrick Rock, former aide to David Cameron, has been convicted of five counts of making indecent images of children.

 

Patrick Rock and David Cameron have known each other for many years.

Jeremy Heywood’s involvement in the Patrick Rock case

Ashworth asked Downing Street’s top civil servant to investigate the circumstances surrounding the arrest of David Cameron’s senior aide Patrick Rock over a suspected offence relating to child abuse images, amid accusations that No 10 has been trying to cover up the allegations.

Shadow Cabinet Office minister Jonathan Ashworth set out his concerns in a letter to Sir Jeremy Heywood, the cabinet secretary, after Cameron’s spokesman refused to answer a series of questions about events leading up to Rock’s arrest and the handling of a separate claim against him


Jeremy Heywood “Sir Cover-Up” – PPS to Norman Lamont

Jeremy Heywood  (Sir Cover-Up) joined HM Treasury in 1992 and became the Principal Private Secretary to Chancellor Norman Lamont at the age of 30, having to help mitigate the fallout from Black Wednesday after less than a month in the job.

Heywood remained in this role throughout the 1990s under Chancellors Kenneth Clarke and Gordon Brown before being promoted to be the Principal Private Secretary to Prime Minister Tony Blair in 1999.

He stayed in this position until 2003, when he left the civil service in the wake of the Hutton Inquiry where it emerged that Heywood claimed to have never minuted meetings in the Prime Ministerial offices about Dr David Kelly, a job he was required to do.

The Hutton Inquiry was a 2003 judicial inquiry in the UK chaired by Lord Hutton, who was appointed by the Labour government to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of David Kelly, a biological warfare expert and former UN weapons inspector in Iraq.

Sir Jeremy has also been criticised in his current role as Cabinet Secretary, in which capacity he has been involved in protracted arguments about the publication of confidential documents relating to the Chilcot inquiry.

Cameron aide who allegedly made indecent images of children

On the authority of the CPS, the National Crime Agency has today charged Patrick Rock, 63, a former Whitehall adviser, with making indecent images of children and possession of 59 indecent images of children.

David Cameron is under pressure to explain whether his senior aide Patrick Rock was tipped off by Downing Street that he was accused of an offence related to child abuse images hours before his arrest by police.

accused Number 10 late Tuesday of a “lack of transparency” about the senior adviser’s resignation and subsequent arrest, which took place nearly three weeks ago but only became public after a leak to a newspaper.

Patrick Rock’s seniority was demonstrated by the fact that he was one of only three advisers given his own private office in No 10. 

Patrick Rock, born Patrick Robert John Rock de Besombes, is a veteran Conservative Party adviser and has been described as David Cameron’s “fixer”.

In Downing Street, he worked across a wide range of topics, including the government’s policy on child pornography.

London-born Mr Rock, 62, is from an aristocratic family and attended Stonyhust College in Lancashire before winning a scholarship to Worcester College, Oxford, where he studied history.

When he graduated, he went to work for Margaret Thatcher as political correspondence secretary.

Patrick ROCK: FORMER AIDE TO PM FACES MAY TRIAL OVER IMAGES OF CHILD ABUSE

October 16, 2015

A former aide to David Cameron accused of possessing child pornography will face trial in May next year. Patrick Rock, 64, allegedly downloaded 62 indecent images depicting females who appear to be between 10 and 14 posing erotically. He charged with six offences of making an indecent photographs of a child of and one offence of possession of 56 indecent images of children. Described as Cameron’s policy fixer, Rock was a key member of the Prime Minister’s inner circle at Downing Street, and had been involved in drawing up government policy on internet porn. –

 photo rock new look_zpsy94aqyvv.jpg

The court heard that 62 images, assessed as being Level C, had been found on an iPad in North Carolina. As a British national Rock can be charged in the UK for these offences even though the images are held in America.

District Judge John Zani said he was transferring the case to Southwark crown court because of the “complexity” it involved.

The court also heard that Rock, who was part of David Cameron’s “inner circle” before his resignation, is being monitored by a welfare officer appointed by Downing Street “for his own protection”.

He had known Mr Cameron since working alongside him in the Nineties for then home secretary Michael Howard. Rock, of Fulham

The indecent images which form the subject of the charges were found on an iPad which was forensically examined. It was seized from an address in North Carolina in America where Rock had been living and working until recently.

Wonder what work the UK government/Downing St had Rock working on in the North Carolina area?

Patrick Rock knows where the skeletons are buried

Patrick Rock was political correspondence secretary in the government of Margaret Thatcher.

He went on to operate as special adviser to various ministers, including service as a special adviser to Michael Howard in the late 1990s, when David Cameron was also advising Howard

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/mar/04/patrick-rock-tory.

Patrick Rock later worked in Brussels under Chris Patten, with special responsibility for the western Balkans, before later being brought back into government in 2011 as a Downing Street special advisor, taking on the title of deputy director of policy.

Cameron had last year been reportedly poised to recognise Patrick Rock’s service with a peerage.

Patrick Rock, who has been arrested on suspicion of an offence relating to child abuse imagery, may not be a household name, but he has been a powerful figure in the upper strata of the Conservative Party for decades.

David Cameron and Patrick Rock first worked together as special advisers to Conservative minister Michael Howard in the late 1990s.

Indeed, such was the strength of their relationship that Mr Cameron brought him back into Downing Street in 2011, appointing him deputy head of the influential No 10 policy unit.

Patrick Rock Update:

31 May 2016

I would hazard a guess that a fair deal of sanitising went on in the two years between Patrick Rock being arrested and tried.

They’ve been fixing things for for years.

 

A former aide to Prime Minister David Cameron downloaded images of scantily clad girls as young as 10 but denies the pictures were indecent, a court has heard.

One of David Cameron’s closest aides downloaded 20 indecent photographs of young, scantily clad girls in sexual poses, a court has heard.

Patrick Rock, 64, who has known the Prime Minister for more than 30 years, resigned from his job in Downing Street after he was arrested when investigators seized his iPad and discovered the images in February 2014.

The girls in the photographs ranged in age between ten and 16, with all but one under the age of 14.

With names such as “cutie” and “princess” the girls were pictured in a variety of what the prosecution said were “sexualised poses”.

“While the genitals are not wholly exposed that area is often the clear focus of the picture as if to make the unambiguous suggestion to the viewer ‘look here, look what you can’t’ wholly see’.”

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/05/31/ex-cameron-aide-patrick-rock-downloaded-indecent-photos-of-young/

“The child is photographed in a pose that is deliberately sexual in tone, because they are scantily clad and/or their legs are often apart and/or they are showing their bottoms to the camera.”

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-36418535

Patrick Rock, 64, admits downloading 20 images of nine girls to his computer from a free-to-view website over three days in August 2013

Prosecutor Tom Forster told the jury the youngest girl was 10 years and four months old at time the pictures were downloaded in 2013, and the oldest 16 years and seven months, meaning they were all younger than that when the photos were originally taken.

He said all of the images were photographed in such a way as to draw attention to their genital areas, despite them being covered by clothing.

Judge Alistair McCreath told the jurors they would have to decide whether the images were indecent in the eyes of an average member of society, rather than basing their decisions on their own personal views.

Has there been a stitch-up in the child abuse imagery case against Cameron’s aide Patrick Rock?

The trial of David Cameron’s former aide Patrick Rock began today (May 31) – and looks like ending today, after the jury retired to consider whether the 20 images they have been shown were indecent.

Hang on! Only 20 images?

Rock was originally charged with …(three offences of making child abuse images and one of possessing 62 indecent images of children)

Where are the rest of them?

Where are the other images and why has the jury not been shown them?

What price justice? There is a savage irony in the news that the Chancellor, Norman Lamont, was given a 4700 government hand-out to pay his private legal bills at the same time as the Treasury had imposed the deepest cuts in legal aid. The result of the latter is to deny millions of people access to affordable justice.

Peter Maurice Wright (9 August 1916 – 27 April 1995) was the principal scientific officer for MI5, the British counter-intelligence agency, noted for writing the controversial book Spycatcher

Spycatcher was part memoir, part exposé of what Wright claimed were serious institutional failings in MI5 and his subsequent investigations into those. He is said to have been influenced in his counterespionage activity by James Jesus Angleton, the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) counterintelligence chief from 1954 to 1975.[1]

During the trial a witness, Sir Robert Armstrong, famously coined (or at least brought back to life) the phrase “Economical with the truth” in response to Wright’s claim that he was telling the truth.[13]

Former Tory MP Jonathan Aitken, once a director of Champneys Inglewood. He was accused by former employees of acting as a ‘pimp’ by requesting call girls, once for a sheikh and once for a group of Arabs.

Then he was embroiled in a legal dispute with former brothel keeper Lindi ‘Miss Whiplash’ St Clair, who claimed that she was thrown out of Inglewood partway through a course.

And though Aitken met his future wife Lolicia at Inglewood, he also cheated on her with bondage prostitute Paula Strudwick, telling her to collect the right sort of birch branches from the woods outside the estate for sadomasochistic sex games. You’d have thought someone would have twigged what was going on.

In 2001 the Purdews of Champneys (friends of Sir Jimmy Savile and Keith Vaz) briefly acquired Inglewood health hydro from agents of Saudi prince Mohammed bin Fahd.

Inglewood had been the scene of allegations, published in the Guardian six years earlier, that then defence minister Jonathan Aitken, a director of the spa, had tried to arrange girls for a Saudi prince and his entourage.

The report led to the notorious libel action brought by Aitken ultimately culminating in his being sentenced to jail for perjury.

LINDI ST CLAIR – MISS WHIPLASH  speaking about her later life:

As a bankrupt, age 44, I married a 75 year old male-to-female transsexual named Marion Wells. We wed at Eastbourne registry office in 1995. Journalists from The Sunday People newspaper attended the service. Marion was very wealthy and gave me all his/her money.

Our marriage was annulled in 1999 so I could marry our minder  who I’d fallen in love with – he was handsome hunky notorious mercenary Dean Shelley – a known professional hit-man who was questioned by Scotland Yard over the famous Jill Dando murder.

I bought a farm in Herefordshire from my first husband’s money and moved there with Dean. Marion died in 2000. Dean and I divorced in 2001.

Younger days – Lindi St Clair – member of the 59 club

Unbeknown to me at the time, an English priest called Father Graham Hullet who had known me since I was 15 when I went to a youth club (the 59 Club) he worked at, and who had followed my ‘career’ 

Father Bill Shergold and Father Graham Hullet were leaders of the 59 Club:

The 59 Club was a church run youth club intended to save the souls of errant yobs

In 1963, senior boys at Eton College invited 59 Club members to a dinner-dance at one of London’s most revered and luxurious hotels in the heart of Mayfair, the Dorchester.

Many stars of the time supported the club – most notably Cliff Richard

The club became well known, and attracted luminaries such as Sir Cliff Richard, Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, and the Bishop of Bath and Wells

Its trustees included Bishop Trevor Huddleston, the famous anti-apartheid campaigner. For British motorcyclists, it was famous for being one of the first places in the UK to preview the previously banned biker movie The Wild One, in 1968

A European human-rights court Wednesday condemned Britain

The case before the European Court of Human Rights, based in Strasbourg, stemmed from a 1993 incident in which a man severely beat his stepson, who was 8-years old at the time, with a three-feet long cane. The man was charged with assault but was acquitted after arguing the beating amounted to “reasonable punishment,” a permissible defense under British law.

The case is likely to lead to a ban on parents severely beating their children, although the UK Government says smacking is a separate issue

The nine judges at the court ruled unanimously that Britain had violated a provision of the European Human Rights Convention that bars torture or treatment that is inhuman or degrading.

The decision was hailed by children’s rights activists.

But William Hague, leader of the Conservative opposition, said the ruling amounted to interference in family life.

Conservative leader William Hague told BBC Radio 2’s Jimmy Young Show:

“We’ve taken the nanny state too far when we have to have court rulings about what people can do with their own children in their own home.

Norman Lamont held key political appointments at crucial times:– he became UK Minister for Defence Procurement just in time to sign the Al-Yamamah arms deal‎ and he was Chancellor of the Exchequer when Black Wednesday transferred around £3B from UK taxpayers to currency traders.

Before entering Parliament he worked for N M Rothschild & Sons, the investment bank, and became director of Rothschild Asset Management.

Since 1996 Lamont has been Chairman of Le Cercle, a foreign policy Club – Le Cercle Chairman as of 13 October 2008 but not as of April 2013.

The manner in which he obtained the job says much about how men of Cameron’s background tend to progress through life. The future Tory leader, whose credentials at Conservative central office were already well-established after periods working for Norman Lamont and Michael Howard, believed a stint in the private sector would benefit his political career.

Cameron Joke moving into Downing Street

As for whether the Camerons rent or sell their £2.7m house, when asked by reporters, the Prime Minister joked:

“I certainly won’t be renting it to Miss Whiplash, if that’s what you mean.”

He was referring to the notorious case of his old boss Norman Lamont, the Tory Chancellor who let out his London home while he was stationed in Downing Street in the early 1990s only for the press to discover that it had been rented by “a sex therapist”.

Heywood remained in this role throughout the 1990s under Chancellors Kenneth Clarke and Gordon Brown before being promoted to be the Principal Private Secretary to Prime Minister Tony Blair in 1999.

He stayed in this position until 2003, when he left the civil service in the wake of the Hutton Inquiry where it emerged that Heywood claimed to have never minuted meetings in the Prime Ministerial offices about Dr David Kelly, a job he was required to do.

The Hutton Inquiry was a 2003 judicial inquiry in the UK chaired by Lord Hutton, who was appointed by the Labour government to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of David Kelly, a biological warfare expert and former UN weapons inspector in Iraq.

Sir Jeremy has also been criticised in his current role as Cabinet Secretary, in which capacity he has been involved in protracted arguments about the publication of confidential documents relating to the Chilcot inquiry.

More recently:  Jeremy Heywood’s involvement in the Patrick Rock case

Cameron aide who allegedly made indecent images of children

Patrick Rock’s seniority was demonstrated by the fact that he was one of only three advisers given his own private office in No 10. 

On the authority of the CPS, the National Crime Agency has today charged Patrick Rock, 63, a former Whitehall adviser, with making indecent images of children and possession of 59 indecent images of children.

David Cameron is under pressure to explain whether his senior aide Patrick Rock was tipped off by Downing Street that he was accused of an offence related to child abuse images hours before his arrest by police.

accused Number 10 late Tuesday of a “lack of transparency” about the senior adviser’s resignation and subsequent arrest, which took place nearly three weeks ago but only became public after a leak to a newspaper.

Sir Cover Up – Jeremy Heywood, Ed Llewellyn and David Cameron

It also emerged that the aide (Patrick Rock) was previously accused of “inappropriate behaviour” by a colleague and this incident was investigated by his line manager, Ed Llewellyn, Cameron’s chief of staff, who is also an old friend of Rock’s.

Ed Llewellyn – He has served Cameron for a decade…If you google his name, you discover next to nothing about him: just the repetition of the same bare facts.

No profile of him seems to have been written: a singular achievement when one considers he is one of the most influential men in the country.

After all, Llewellyn had not only worked, in Bosnia, for Ashdown,… but is on friendly terms, since working in Brussels for Patten, with Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, wife of the current Lib Dem leader, Nick Clegg.

After leaving Oxford, Ed Llewellyn was employed as an aide to former Governor Chris Patten in Hong Kong, as Patten’s ‘Chef de Cabinet’

Ed Llewellyn’s last job before working for Cameron was as an aide to “viceroy” Paddy Ashdown aka “Paddy Pantsdown“in Bosnia.

Patrick ROCK: FORMER AIDE TO PM FACES MAY TRIAL OVER IMAGES OF CHILD ABUSE

October 16, 2015

A former aide to David Cameron accused of possessing child pornography will face trial in May next year. Patrick Rock, 64, allegedly downloaded 62 indecent images depicting females who appear to be between 10 and 14 posing erotically. He charged with six offences of making an indecent photographs of a child of and one offence of possession of 56 indecent images of children. Described as Cameron’s policy fixer, Rock was a key member of the Prime Minister’s inner circle at Downing Street, and had been involved in drawing up government policy on internet porn. –

 photo rock new look_zpsy94aqyvv.jpg

The court heard that 62 images, assessed as being Level C, had been found on an iPad in North Carolina. As a British national Rock can be charged in the UK for these offences even though the images are held in America.

District Judge John Zani said he was transferring the case to Southwark crown court because of the “complexity” it involved.

The court also heard that Rock, who was part of David Cameron’s “inner circle” before his resignation, is being monitored by a welfare officer appointed by Downing Street “for his own protection”.

He had known Mr Cameron since working alongside him in the Nineties for then home secretary Michael Howard. Rock, of Fulham

The indecent images which form the subject of the charges were found on an iPad which was forensically examined. It was seized from an address in North Carolina in America where Rock had been living and working until recently.

Patrick Rock knows where the skeletons are buried

Patrick Rock was political correspondence secretary in the government of Margaret Thatcher.

He went on to operate as special adviser to various ministers, including service as a special adviser to Michael Howard in the late 1990s, when David Cameron was also advising Howard

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/mar/04/patrick-rock-tory.

Patrick Rock later worked in Brussels under Chris Patten, with special responsibility for the western Balkans, before later being brought back into government in 2011 as a Downing Street special advisor, taking on the title of deputy director of policy.


Cameron had last year been reportedly poised to recognise Patrick Rock’s service with a peerage.

Patrick Rock, who has been arrested on suspicion of an offence relating to child abuse imagery, may not be a household name, but he has been a powerful figure in the upper strata of the Conservative Party for decades.

Patrick Rock and David Cameron have known each other for many years.

David Cameron and Patrick Rock first worked together as special advisers to Conservative minister Michael Howard in the late 1990s.

Indeed, such was the strength of their relationship that Mr Cameron brought him back into Downing Street in 2011, appointing him deputy head of the influential No 10 policy unit.

Auchi made his fortune largely thanks to his extensive business contacts in the Middle East, and in particular in his native Iraq, where he is reported to have once been an official of the Iraqi government. Before the Gulf war changed the commercial network of the region for ever, Auchi set up several multi-million pound deals within Iraq.

His extraordinary global business deals have brought him to the attention of investigators in two of the most dramatic corruption scandals post-war Europe has seen.

In March 1993, Battaglia swore a statement that he had given millions of dollars in commission to Auchi to help secure a deal to build a pipeline from Iraq to Saudi Arabia for a consortium of Franco-Italian companies. Battaglia provided a detailed description of the transactions, involving companies in Panama and Guernsey. (Panama Papers?)

While Auchi and his associates say that GMH has no links to the Saddam regime, Iraqi dissidents are not so sure.

Opposition groups remain suspicious and are known to have expressed concern to the Foreign Office as long ago as 1995.

Charles Napier arrest: Half-brother of Tory MP John Whittingdale questioned over ‘sexual assault’ by police probing alleged VIP paedophile ring

Media Select Committee Chairman John Whittingdale has spoken out about the arrest this morning of his half-brother Charles Napier, who was nicked by the Met investigating 80s abuse at Elm Guest House in Barnes:

“I am aware that my half-brother was arrested at our mother’s home.

 I have absolutely no idea about the claims but if allegations have been to police they should be investigated.”

When police raided his house in Evesham, Worcs, in 1992 they found not only hard-core child abuse images from Amsterdam but a “quarter-century of correspondence” between paedophiles in Britain and around the world.

Mr Whittingdale was unknowingly passing information about his relationship, parliamentary business meetings and movements to Mr Djoughdem via Ms King, who was attempting to sell this information to tabloid newspapers.

Djoughdem, a self described gangster who goes by the name ‘Gerrard’ in underworld circles.

Read more at:https://www.byline.com/column/51/article/1008

Mr Djoughdem spoke about his former association with infamous London gangsters Kray twins and about being one of the ‘biggest cocaine dealers in London.’

Mr Djoughdem used to run infamous high end nightclub Wall St. which was known for being a centre of cocaine dealing, and frequented by celebrities including Prince and Dodi Al-Fayed, lover of Princess Diana.

Darius, Koslowski, one of Djoughdem’s former bouncers, a former bodyguard of Prince, boasts regularly about drugs and guns online.

These revelations will raise fresh questions about the Cabinet Minister’s judgement and suitability for office, particularly in regards to whether Parliamentary security was jeopardized by information passing from him to criminal elements.

To some, he’s a gadfly; to others, he’s one of the most influential figures of our age. Lord Wyatt of Weeford – close friend of Maggie, Rupert and the Queen Mum – looks back on a lifetime of courting the rich and powerful

In the 1980s, the Sunday Telegraph called Woodrow Wyatt “the most influential person of our age” – reflecting both his closeness to the Prime Minister, and his almost cabalistic relationship with the other person who most defined that period: Rupert Murdoch. More than anyone else, Wyatt demonstrates the way in which those two great enemies of the Establishment none the less developed an Establishment of their own.

Lord and Lady Wyatt’s daughter Petronella is assistant editor of the Spectator. She was appointed by the magazine’s editor, Frank Johnson

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/obituaries/obituary-lord-wyatt-of-weeford-1287784.html

Petronella – it was her mother, Verushka, widow of the late Lord Wyatt of Weeford, who briefed journalists about the alleged affair between Petsy and the Tory MP Boris Johnson, her editor at The Spectator magazine.

Such an unusual approach was always forgiven, though, for Petsy was a hugely popular figure within the Telegraph group (she later edited The Sunday Telegraph’s Mandrake column before moving to The Spectator). She was considered to live an impossibly glamorous life and was much lusted after by male staff, particularly the older ones. She always seemed to be at gatherings thrown by the powerful, singing for Norman Lamont, then the Chancellor, at his 50th birthday party. She is still to be seen at soirées given by the likes of the historian Flora Fraser, granddaughter of the late Lord Longford, or Jonathan Aitken.

After Max Clifford told her that “Carey from the Church of England” had called him for advice, the Spectator ran the line “The Archbishop calls on Max” on the cover. Unfortunately, Clifford had been referring to the then Archbishop of Canterbury’s son Andrew, not George.

Church of England colluded with bishop who abused boys, says Welby

Report about bishop Peter Ball, finding collusion over 20 years, is ‘harrowing reading’

Collusion: Secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy

Senior figures in the Church of England colluded for a period of 20 years with a disgraced former bishop who sexually abused boys and men, a damning independent report has found.

The archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, said the report on the church’s handling of former bishop Peter Ball made “harrowing reading”.

“The church colluded and concealed rather than seeking to help those who were brave enough to come forward. This is inexcusable and shocking behaviour,” he said.

“To the survivors who were brave enough to share their story and bring Peter Ball to justice, I once again offer an unreserved apology. There are no excuses whatsoever for what took place and the systemic abuse of trust perpetrated by Peter Ball over decades.”

Two former archbishops of Canterbury, George Carey and Rowan Williams, apologised to the victims of Peter Ball after being criticised for their failures in relation to him.

Ball, the former bishop of both Gloucester and Lewes, was jailed in October 2015 for the grooming, sexual exploitation and abuse of 18 vulnerable young men aged 17-25 who had sought spiritual guidance from him between 1977 and 1992. He was released from prison in February after serving 16 months.

His trial heard that after Ball was first accused in 1993, a string of senior establishment figures – including Carey, an unidentified member of the royal family, cabinet ministers and a high court judge – came forward in his support, writing letters to the police and Crown Prosecution Service.

Ball was cautioned by police. He resigned his post as bishop and retired to a rented cottage on the Prince of Wales’s Duchy of Cornwall estate but continued to officiate in 17 public schools until 2007. A fresh investigation was opened in 2012 which led to his conviction.

One of Ball’s victims, Neil Todd – the first to come forward with allegations of abuse – attempted suicide three times before killing himself in 2012.

Welby ordered an independent review of the church’s handling of the case, chaired by Dame Moira Gibb, former chief executive of Camden council.

The report said Ball’s case was dealt with at the highest levels within the church. He “was seen by the church as the man in trouble who the church needed to help”.

Ball was portrayed as a victim, and the review found “little evidence of compassion for Neil Todd even though from the outset it was clear that he was a vulnerable young man who had come to harm”.

It added: “The church appears to have been most interested in protecting itself.”

In the foreword to her report, An Abuse of Faith, published on Thursday, Gibb said the serious sexual wrongdoing of Ball “is shocking in itself but is compounded by the failure of the church to respond appropriately to his misconduct, again over a period of many years”.

“Ball’s priority was to protect and promote himself and he maligned the abused. The church colluded. The church colluded with that rather than seeking to help those he had harmed, or assuring itself of the safety of others.”

The report added, “progress has been slow and continuing, faster improvement is still required”.

Gibb made 11 recommendations in her report, including improving support to survivors of clerical abuse and taking steps to “demonstrate the individual and collective accountability of bishops”.

Peter Hancock, the C of E’s lead safeguarding bishop, who received the report on behalf of the church, said it had failed Ball’s survivors. “Having read the report I am appalled and disturbed by its contents … As a church we colluded, we failed to act and protect those who came forward for help. There are no excuses. We accept all the recommendations and are working to action them.”

Rowan Williams: ‘It is clear I did not give adequate priority to sorting out the concerns and allegations surrounding Peter Ball.’

He added: “For the survivors, it may feel this is all too late.”

According to the report, Ball intimated “on many occasions, to Lord Carey and others, that he enjoys the status of confidant of the Prince of Wales” and “sought to exploit his contact with members of the royal family in order to bolster his position”.

However, Dame Moira Gibb’s report went on, it “found no evidence that the Prince of Wales or any other member of the royal family sought to intervene at any point in order to protect or promote Ball”.

Carey was criticised in the report, which said he “set the tone for the church’s response to Ball’s crimes and gave the steer which allowed Ball’s assertions that he was innocent to gain credence”.

In a statement responding to the report, Carey said it made “uncomfortable reading” and he accepted its criticisms of him. “I apologise to the victims of Peter Ball. I believed Peter Ball’s protestations and gave too little credence to the vulnerable young men and boys behind those allegations.”

Carey said he regretted not putting Ball’s name on the Lambeth List – names of people whose suitability for ministry is under question – after he was cautioned.

Under the leadership of Williams, the church began reviewing past cases, a move which ultimately led to the criminal case against Ball being reopened, the report said. However, he was criticised as being “lamentably slow” in making change.

In a statement, Williams said: “Having read the report and reflected on its details, it is clear I did not give adequate priority to sorting out the concerns and allegations surrounding Peter Ball at the earliest opportunity. I recognise such a delay is likely to have increased the pressure and distress experienced by the survivors of his abuse and I am sincerely sorry for this.”

The Dark Web Devil: Cambridge University graduate blackmailed people – including children – into performing degrading acts he uploaded online

Dr Matthew Falder, 28, described by police as “truly evil”, targeted more than 50 victims while studying at prestigious Clare College

16 OCT 2017

A Cambridge University graduate forced men, women and children to carry out degrading acts on the dark web after blackmailing them.

Dr Matthew Falder, 28, described by police as “truly evil”, targeted more than 50 victims while studying at prestigious Clare College.

The party-loving former public schoolboy used selling website Gumtree to approach members of the public posing as a female artist.

Falder pretended he wanted to sketch nude paintings of his victims and convinced them to send him naked snaps.

The geophysicist secretly “harvested” their social media accounts and researched their family details and home addresses.

Falder has been described as “truly evil”

Falder, who had a long-term girlfriend, then threatened to make the photos public unless they agreed to his increasingly sick demands.

Using the ‘Dark Web’ to cover his tracks, Falder forced the victims – the youngest of whom was just 13 – to carry out degrading acts.

One woman was ordered to film herself licking the floor of a dirty toilet and send him the video.

Another victim was forced to scrawl offensive words on her body before sending the snaps to Falder.

Some of his targets were so traumatised they self-harmed or attempted suicide and are still receiving counselling.

He also secretly filmed unsuspecting victims as they showered at several locations in the UK.

The seismic researcher posted the videos and photos on forums on the Dark Web.

He also posted images of babies and children being tortured on the sites, which are invisible to regular internet users.

Falder encouraged one man to rape a four-year-old boy and post footage of the shocking attack online.

Detectives said the rape took place and is currently being prosecuted by an overseas police force.

Falder posed as an artist named ‘Liz’ on Gumtree and offered a 15-year-old girl £250 to send topless photographs of herself.

After she sent the snaps he demanded more and threatened to post them on Facebook and send them to her family and teachers if she refused.

He told another schoolgirl that he would post naked photos of her to every house on her parents’ street unless she agreed to his demands.

Falder boasted on Dark Web forums about blackmailing schoolgirls and asked them for advice on what degrading actions to demand.

Falder, who called himself ‘evilmind’ and ‘666devil’ online, was snared after a landmark two-year National Crime Agency investigation.

They were aided by experts at GCHQ – the Government’s communications spy centre in Cheltenham, Gloucs.

He was arrested while working as a postdoctoral researcher at Birmingham University in June.

The academic pleaded guilty to 137 separate charges dating back to 2010 when he appeared at Birmingham Crown Court.

He had studied at the University of Birmingham (Image: SWNS.com)

The offences included blackmail, causing the sexual exploitation of a child, voyeurism and encouraging the rape of a child.

He also admitted possessing a “paedophile manual” and possessing and distributing indecent images of children.

The pervert denied 51 similar offences and these were ordered to lie on file by prosecutors.

Falder, who faces a maximum term of life behind bars, will be sentenced at the same court in December.

It is the first prosecution in the UK targeting sites dedicated to the discussion and sharing of “dark” material.

Matt Sutton, the senior investigating officer, branded Falder a “truly evil” offender and “prolific online predator”.

He said: “In 30 years of law enforcement I have never come across such horrifying offending. His sole aim was to cause pain and distress.

“There are more than 50 victims in this case and I commend them for their bravery in helping us convict a truly evil offender.

“Over several years believed he could evade law enforcement to sexually and sadistically exploit vulnerable victims.”

Falder, originally from Knutsford, Cheshire, graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in Natural Sciences in 2010.

In a blog that has since been deleted, he wrote: “Do what you enjoy – not what you think you ‘should’ do.”

Ruona Iguyovwe, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said Falder “enjoyed humiliating his victims”.

She added: “The impact of his offending, which carried on over several years, has been significant.”

Falder’s dad Stephen said: “This has turned our lives upside down. It came as a complete shock and the family is totally devastated.”

Cambridge University said it was “deeply shocked and saddened” by the “awful crimes”.

A spokesman added: “ Our thoughts are with the victims and with their families, who have no doubt been deeply affected.”

Birmingham University described the crimes as “abhorrent” and said they were in “no way” connected with the university.

Cambridge professor in court over indecent images of children

Simon Jarvis is bailed after entering no pleas to 12 allegations of possessing and distributing indecent images of children

 

Simon Jarvis, a poetry specialist, has been suspended from Cambridge University pending an internal investigation.

A Cambridge University academic has appeared in court charged with possessing and distributing indecent images of children.

Prof Simon Jarvis, 53, a poetry specialist based at the English faculty, entered no pleas to the 12 allegations in a brief appearance at Cambridge magistrates court on Friday.

Jarvis spoke only to confirm his name, age and address, to say he understood the proceedings and that he did not wish to give an indication of plea.

He was bailed to appear at Cambridge crown court on 24 March and was told not to have any unsupervised contact with under-18s. Jarvis, who lives in Cambridge, was arrested last September.

A Cambridge University spokeswoman said: “The individual has been suspended pending an internal investigation, however, it would not be appropriate to comment further while legal proceedings are active.”

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/feb/24/cambridge-professor-in-court-over-indecent-images-of-children?CMP=share_btn_tw

Jarvis, of Romsey Terrace, Cambridge, was arrested by National Crime Agency officers in September last year.

A young English poet, fostered by an ancient and glorious university, starts writing startling, experimental verses, which find their first audience among a talented, radicalized coterie of other young writers. He’s got amazing chops, especially when it comes to his metrics. He travels. He writes. He is appreciated, especially in the left-leaning quarters of the literary world. He moves to America, grows increasingly religious and perhaps less radical. He turns toward more traditional forms, shows a great aptness for rhyme, and embraces the Anglican Church.

The poet is, of course, W.H. Auden. Unless you add “…but moves back” after “He moves to America.” In that case, we’re no longer talking about Auden, we’re talking about Simon Jarvis.

Simon Jarvis, Gorley Putt Professor of Poetry and Poetics at Cambridge University, wrote to the AHRC chief executive, Rick Rylance, saying that the appearance of the phrase “big society” in the AHRC strategy document represented a “dangerous breach of the Haldane Principle”.

In the letter, which has been passed to the Guardian, Jarvis who has acted as an AHRC peer reviewer, also called for Rylance’s resignation.

“This slogan still sits there, bold as brass, in the middle of this document. Why … either you are impotent to resist this disgraceful piece of corruption, or you are actively complicit in it. Either case suggests that you are an inappropriate person to hold the post which you currently occupy,” he wrote.

CAMBRIDGE ACADEMIA:

Conference summary

This conference brings together social and political scientists, feminist scholars, sexologists, psychiatrists, historians of science, as well as mental health practitioners and sexual rights activists to critically explore the sexual classifications produced by the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published in May 2013. The DSM is the standard reference for the classification of mental disorders, and its first major revision since 1994 is consequently an important global event. The conference will explore which categories of ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’, ‘healthy’ and ‘pathological’ sexualities and identities the new manual produces, and critically scrutinise their consequences for diagnostic practices as well as their wider social and political implications. The conference will take place on 4 and 5 July 2013 at the interdisciplinary Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) of the University of Cambridge. It is financially supported by CRASSH, the Wellcome Trust, the Sexual Divisions Study Group of the British Sociological Association, the French Institute, Northumbria University, the Laboratoire de Sociologie of the University of Lausanne, and The Gender Identity Research and Education Society (GIRES).

An academic conference at the University of Cambridge last July was told that paedophilic interest is “natural and normal for males”, and that “at least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children… Normal males are aroused by children.”

Other topics discussed at the conference included “Liberating the Paedophile: A Discursive Analysis” and “Danger and Difference: the Stakes of Hebephilia” – hebephilia being sexual attraction to children in early puberty.

‘Paedophilia is natural and normal for males’

How some university academics make the case for paedophiles at summer conferences

05 Jul 2014

“Paedophiles are told they are the seducers and rapists of children; they know their experiences are often loving and tender ones. They are told that children are pure and innocent, devoid of sexuality; they know both from their own experiences of childhood and from the children they meet that this is not the case.”

As recently as 2012, Prof Plummer published on his personal blog a chapter he wrote in another book, Male Intergenerational Intimacy, in 1991. “As homosexuality has become slightly less open to sustained moral panic, the new pariah of ‘child molester’ has become the latest folk devil,” he wrote. “Many adult paedophiles say that boys actively seek out sex partners … ‘childhood’ itself is not a biological given but an historically produced social object.”

Prof Plummer confirmed to The Sunday Telegraph that he had been a member of PIE in order to “facilitate” his research.

^ In 2013, a conference on sexuality was held by the University of Cambridge. One speaker, Professor Philip Tromovitch of Doshisha University in Japan, claimed in his presentation on “The Prevalence of Paedophilia” that “paedophilic interest is normal and natural in human males”.

Also at the conference was a man not often invited to respectable events, at least not since his high-profile convictions and subsequent imprisonment for the possession of child abuse images. Tom O’Carroll, who gained notoriety in the 1970s as chair of PIE, is a campaigner for the rights of paedophiles.

link


The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July (2013).

It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge.

(One) attendee and enthusiastic participant from the floor, was Tom O’Carroll, a multiple child sex offender, long-time campaigner for the legalisation of sex with children and former head of the Paedophile Information Exchange. “Wonderful!” he wrote on his blog afterwards. “It was a rare few days when I could feel relatively popular!”

Tom O’Carroll – former chairman of PIE Paedophile Information Exchange

O’Carroll was jailed in 2006 for distributing indecent images of children

His conviction in 2006 came after cops infiltrated two paedophile rights groups and found 50,000 images of young boys being abused.

Paedophilia in Cambridge Academia:

Donald West

Donald West is Emeritus Professor of Clinical Criminology at the University of Cambridge, and a former Director of the Institute of Criminology at the University of Cambridge


Donald West will have exerted a considerable influence, not only on Criminology students at the University of Cambridge, but also on students from other universities who were exposed to his work.


Criminology graduates often go on to careers in the police service, the probation service, and the social work profession, and some go on to work with cases involving child abuse. West’s published work in the field of criminology reveals some deeply disturbing views on child sexual abuse, especially considering his position of authority and influence.


Donald West wrote that child sexual abuse was sometimes “beneficial”, referred to child abusers as “lovers”, and referred to a child being abused by an adult as a “relationship”.

“Admittedly, pedophiliac relationships do sometimes seem beneficial. A child may learn much from a consistent and caring adult lover and come to cherish him as a friend long after the period of erotic attachment has passed.

He advises against “over-reacting” by contacting the police in cases of child sexual abuse, and warns that the effects of an investigation are “certainly worse than the effects, if any, of the sexual activity itself”.

In fact, West is against the criminal prosecution of child sexual abuse no matter how young the victim, as long as the abuse is “consensual”

IPCE

An academic in Europe had infiltrated Ipce, an international paedophile organisation, and I was being sent their online correspondence each day.

It was apparent that many members were academics, driven by a desire to persuade the rest of society that sex with children was acceptable and to influence legislators all over the world to lower the age of consent.


Intriguingly, there was a clear link to Glasgow University and a suggested link to Cambridge University.

But critics last night condemned his views and warned they could play into the hands of paedophiles.

Prof Spencer’s controversial views have aroused vocal opposition.

This backlash is not just targeted at the Professor, the BBC has found itself in hot water for inviting Professor Spencer to speak on the Radio 4 show.

David Davies grumbled, “I’m astounded that the BBC is giving airtime to someone with such views.”

Supporters of the current law say it protects youngsters from exploitation.

A BBC Spokesman bit back, claiming “The programme does not advocate the issue, but is a platform for an individual viewpoint and a starting point for serious debate.

Roger Mosey was near the very top of the BBC during the Savile crisis – a member of Entwistle’s inner circle. … (did he know) about Savile’s unsavoury past before the crisis hit, to which Roger replies: “I think the question is ‘Did anyone know that Jimmy Savile was a criminal paedophile?’ No

“The story that became established was the BBC knew Jimmy Savile was a criminal paedophile, part of the news empire started investigating it, and it was then stopped by BBC management.

Which was never true,” he insists. “The idea that the BBC would’ve covered up a criminal paedophile was absurd – we never would have done that!

Cambridge University paedophile Jonathan Jenkins freed over fears prison would ruin studies

Sentencing Jenkins, Judge Hawkesworth

 

Judge Gareth Hawkesworth –   Cambridge graduate

06 Apr 2009


Judge Gareth Hawkesworth has freed  a Cambridge University student found with pornographic images of children on his computer, claiming  sending him to prison would be a ‘cruel and pointless’ exercise.


Former Selwyn College student, Jonathan Jenkins was caught with 293 indecent images on his computer

Jenkins, a  who now studies in Bath, pleaded guilty to 15 counts of making indecent images of children and one count of possession at Cambridge Crown Court.


Five of the images Jenkins downloaded, which were of girls aged nine to 15, were classed as level five pornography – the most serious classification on the Copine Scale used to assess the severity of such images.

There were 18 victims of sexual abuse and he was also found with 16,000 indecent images of children.

Dr Myles Bradbury: Why was paedophile doctor not stopped?


Bradbury known to authorities SIXTEEN months before arrest for abusing child cancer patients in Cambridge


Police chiefs across England and Wales have been asked if they failed to act on allegations against 2,300 suspected paedophiles.


The Independent Police Complaints Commission has ordered chief constables to review how they handled material received from the National Crime Agency in November 2013 concerning alleged child abusers in their area.

The nationwide review follows two high-profile cases where police were accused of failing to act on intelligence arising out of Project Spade, an international sting that caught more than 2,300 people purchasing explicit footage of naked teenage boys over the internet.

In a separate Project Spade case, it emerged that Myles Bradbury was brought to the attention of police before he admitted a string of offences on child patients in his care.

Former police worker downloaded 110,000 indecent images of children

A former police worker could face jail for possessing more than 110,000 indecent images of children.

Nicholas White admitted 20 counts of possessing indecent images and two of possessing extreme images at Cambridge Crown Court today.

He worked as a communications officer employed by Cambridgeshire Police and was deployed to a unit overseen by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo).

Acpo is an independent body which brings together the expertise of chief police officers across the country

White had been employed since June 2008 and resigned after his arrest in February last year.

The charges cover more than 110,000 images including photographs and videos of eight-year-olds

Judge Gareth Hawkesworth said: ‘This report should not be taken as any indication of the likely sentence.

‘I keep all options, including custody, open.’

He was released on bail

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: ‘All applications for employment with the constabulary are subject to rigorous checks and vetting, including the examination of criminal records and employment history.

‘Any allegations against employees are fully investigated and disciplinary action and, if necessary, criminal proceedings, will be instigated if appropriate.’

Matt TAPP : Bizarre PR Stunts In Search For The Missing Soham Girls

http://www.theguardian.com/media/2003/dec/22/mondaymediasection.soham

Cambridgeshire Council

Why did Cambridgeshire Council promote known paedophile Keith Laverack giving him access to children’s files?

In Cambridgeshire, Keith Laverack worked with numerous colleagues, four of whom are now also suspected of abusing children. Dennis Grain worked in Doncaster for the same group of private schools as Terence Hoskins who went on to become headteacher of St Aiden’s Community Home in Widnes, where he liked to thrash naked boys with a cane, which he then pushed into their backsides, while his housemaster, Colin Dick, indecently assaulted those who caught his eye. Dennis Grain had previously attacked boys in Danesford childrens’ home in Congleton, opening the door to three others, John Clarke, Joseph Smith and Brian Hudson, who set about the boys with relish. Dennis Grain, in the meantime, went off to work at Eton, where he became a housemaster. The web is almost endless.

While he was Principal of St Vincent’s, Alan Langshaw recruited a care worker named Edward Stanton, who joined in Langshaw’s orgy. Stanton appears to have got the job through the good offices of Roy Shuttleworth, who was continuing to abuse the boys at Greystone and who is believed to have known Stanton from their time in Birmingham when they took the same course in residential child care.

That course in Birmingham, in turn, is believed to have been lectured by Peter Righton, a notorious paedophile who attempted to legitimise his obsession in a series of academic studies. Righton, for his part, belonged to the Paedophile Information Exchange, along with Jack Bennett who joined in the abuse at Greystone. Righton had earlier worked in the same childrens’ home in Maidstone, Kent as Peter Howarth, who went on to become a legendary abuser in the homes of North Wales where he shared his indulgence with Steve Norris, formerly of Greystone

Peter Righton lectured not only in Birmingham but in numerous other colleges. Before he was finally taken to court and convicted, he became a highly regarded consultant in child care and, eventually, the Director of Education at the prestigious National Institute of Social Work in London, a position from which he was able to have some influence on Government policy.

With similar cynicism, Keith Laverack, who opened the catalogue of abuse at Greystone Heath, went on to run the Guardian Ad Litem panel for Cambridgeshire County Council, with the job of representing the interests of children in court cases. This job not only introduced him to the most vulnerable children in the area but also gave him access to files on abused children all over the country.

More on Peter Tatchell and colleagues

Is this the current CHE membership leaflet with photo of Nettie Pollard & Peter Tatchell from 2011?

“Pollard gave a constant stream of support to paedophiles and promoted their views.”

Photo below: Nettie Pollard (EC Member) with Peter Tatchell at the 2011 Annual Conference:

Nettie Pollard was member number 70 of the Paedophile Information Exchange.

nettie-pollard

Pensioner backed Paedophile Information Exchange and may hold key to links with left wing groups

Nettie Pollard was a key figure in the London left – a Sunday People investigation reveals her to be a chief apologist for some of PIE’s most chilling demands

Even those who have lived beside her for years have little idea about her life – none of her neighbours has ever been invited inside the home she has lived in alone for almost 30 years.

But 69-year-old Nettie Pollard may hold the key to how the Paedophile Information Exchange infiltrated left wing groups in the 1970s.

She was a key figure in the London left, working for the National Council for Civil Liberties for two decades.

But a Sunday People investigation reveals Pollard to be chief apologist for some of PIE’s most chilling demands.

Our investigation found that throughout her career Pollard gave a constant stream of support to paedophiles and promoted their views. She also:

  • Supported PIE’s call to scrap the age of consent.
  • Argued against the introduction of a bill to protect children.
  • Sat on committees with known ­paedophiles and PIE members.
  • Wrote a twisted essay defending sex between adults and children.

It emerged MP Harriet Harman, ­husband Jack Dromey and former Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt had been involved with the NCCL when PIE was affiliated to it.

Mrs Harman has subsequently moved to distance herself from Pollard and paedophiles, with a spokesman stating they “did not influence any of the work she did there”.

Image result for harriet harman pie

However one source involved with the London left in the 70s claims – ­embarrassingly for Mrs Harman – that she and Pollard did work together on occasions within the NCCL .

The source said: “Nettie was a big presence in the movement back in the 1970s and couldn’t be ignored by anyone wanting to get on in the NCCL.”

Our investigation first places Pollard in 1975 working as the Gay and Lesbian Officer for the NCCL.

And that brought her into close ­contact with the infamous PIE – the child sex group which campaigned to have the age of consent lowered or scrapped.

As well as her role at the NCCL, Pollard was and remains a significant member of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality – a group that defended PIE’s rights at their 1983 conference.

But even after PIE was disbanded in 1984, Pollard made no secret of her ­sympathy for the organisation’s aims.

In 1993 she contributed a ­defence of the ­sexualisation of youngsters to a book called Bad Girls and Dirty Pictures.

Entitled The Small Matter of Children, Pollard’s essay draws on work by known paedophiles such as former PIE vice-chair Warren Middleton to build its case.

Pollard argues child sex should be legal if the act is “consensual”.

It also uses language like “willing partners” to describe sex between adults and children.

But by far the most disturbing section is Pollard’s attempt to justify the sexualisation of children.

She writes: “Far from being ‘innocent’ and becoming sexual at puberty, as was once the common belief, it is now indisputable that everyone is sexual, even before birth.”

The research cited was also used in PIE’s bid to reduce the age of consent to just four.

Pollard continued to work for the NCCL until her mysterious ­departure from the group in 1997.

She was made redundant but reports from Feminists Against Censorship implies murkier reasons ­behind her exit.

A ­newsletter from the time reads: “Within the last several months, two of NCCL’s employees have remarked that the organisation’s longest-serving staff member, Nettie Pollard, was the last civil libertarian left on the payroll.”

Challenging the cost-cutting explanation given it added: “Since she is one of the few indispensable staff members, and the most ­expensive to make redundant, we suspect economy is not the reason.”

Pollard, whose Facebook page currently shows her support for causes including an anti-drones campaign and attacks on the “Big Brother” state, also showcases her taste in music with a link to indie rock band The Donutsh – described by one of their following as sounding “like Johnny Cash biting off Johnny Rotten’s head”.

She refused to answer the door to us when we visited her home.

Feb 2014: Convicted paedophile, Tom O’Carroll told The Guardian he remained a member of the NCCL’s gay rights committee for several years after Harman claimed his organisation was marginalised. NCCL archives in London have also shown how O’Carroll, a former chairman of PIE, asked Nettie Pollard, a staff member at the organisation, about the possibility of amendments to the 1978 child protection bill.

Peter Tatchell

Warren Middleton, the editor of a paedophile book to which Peter Tatchell contributed an article in the 1980s was jailed for child sex offences

Middleton was the editor of Betrayal of Youth, a notorious paedophile campaigning manual to which Peter Tatchell contributed a chapter on ‘Questioning Ages of Majority and Ages of Consent’.

Peter Tatchell  wrote an obituary for Ian Campbell Dunn, who was the co-founder of the PIE.

The obituary fails to mention his long career as a paedophile activist.

On June 26, 1997, Mr Tatchell wrotea start­ling letter to the Guardian newspaper.

In it, he said:

‘While it may be impossible to condone paedophilia, it is time society acknowledged the truth that not all sex involving children is unwanted, abusive and harmful.

Contrast the treatment given this Cambridge student with that of paedophile Hammond who is welcomed back to the school.

A PhD student at Cambridge University has been suspended until the end of 2014 for his role in a protest against the higher education minister, David Willetts.In a ruling condemned as a travesty by fellow students, the English literature student was suspended for seven terms after reading out a poem that disrupted a speech by the minister.

The student, named by a student newspaper as Owen Holland, read out a poem that included the lines: “You are a man who believes in the market and in the power of competition to drive up quality. But look to the world around you: your gods have failed.”

…the penalty does seem disproportionate.

“This is out of all proportion. Two and a half years for an entirely legal and peaceful protest is an absolute travesty and makes me ashamed to study at this university. The idea that you can protect freedom of speech by silencing protest is the height of hypocrisy.”

The Court of Appeal overturned an order earlier this year by Judge Gareth Hawkesworth at Cambridge Crown Court which banned the paper from identifying a convicted rapist who had been jailed

The News argued against his initial, incorrect attempts to use anonymity law to prevent the man being named and was successful. But the judge changed which law he would use to prevent the naming, despite opposition from the News.

 The Press Association appealed against the order and the Court of Appeal agreed judges had no power to make orders giving defendants in rape cases anonymity.

Pitcairn Island – Child Sex Abuse Continues

Former Pitcairn mayor found guilty over child abuse images

6 March 2016

Michael Warren, who downloaded more than 1000 images of child abuse while working in child protection, will serve his sentence on the tiny Pacific island

The former mayor of Pitcairn Island has been sentenced to 20-months in prison after he was convicted of possessing more than 1000 images and videos depicting child pornography.The tiny British territory in the South Pacific, which has a population of around 50 people, gained international notoriety in 2004 when seven of the island’s 12 men were accused of a total of 55 sex crimes, some dating back 40 years.

Photo published for Former Pitcairn mayor found guilty over child pornography

Former mayor Michael Warren – who served as the island’s mayor from 2008 to 2013 – began downloading images of child abuse in 2004.

During the years Warren downloaded the images he was working in child protection on the island – and travelling to New Zealand and the United Kingdom in an official capacity for further training in child protection.

Warren has also been found guilty of engaging in an internet “sex chat” with a person purporting to be a 15-year-schoolgirl, and of possessing a video that showed a bound and gagged naked woman.

Warren will begin serving prison time when New Zealand police officers arrive on the island, which could take up to six months.

It is not known whether he will be detained on the island’s specially-built prison, which was constructed by islanders found guilty of sex crimes with material shipped out from Britain in kit form.

Lawyer calls for trial to be held on Pitcairn Island, not in Auckland, as ex-mayor Michael Warren denies all 25 charges

As mayor in 2010, it was alleged in court, Warren accidentally sent an email to a diplomatic staff member from an address in someone else’s name.

It was further alleged in court that the staff member searched for the address online and found it was linked to an online chat site containing explicit material.

Sergeant Geoff Medland, an officer seconded to Pitcairn Island in 2009 as part of the assistance provided by New Zealand police to the territory, was made aware of the allegations in late April 2010.

The crown alleges Medland found more than 1,000 child abuse images and videos in a search of Warren’s home on 26 May 2010.

Warren was arrested by Medland on behalf of the British high commission and charged with 20 counts of possessing child sexual abuse content under section 160 of the UK’s Criminal Justice Act 1988. He also received five charges under the Pitcairn summary offences ordinance for possession of indecent articles involving adults.

The court heard Richard Alston and his partner Peter Righton forced an 11-year-old boy at the school to watch pornography and then perform sex acts on him at their home in Greenford, west London.

It was the investigation into Righton – convicted of importing images of child abuse in 1992 – that led to MP Tom Watson using Parliamentary privilege in 2012 to allege there was “clear intelligence” of a VIP child sex abuse ring.

Many questions remain unanswered including who were Napier’s referees for his employment with the British Council

Prince Philip is godfather to Henniker’s son

Henniker ran the Islington /Suffolk Project – a scheme for disadvantaged children from Islington to have country holidays in rural Suffolk.

Henniker was Director of the British Council (1968-72).

Paedophile Peter Righton was allowed to live at the Thornham Magna estate of Lord Henniker in Suffolk, where children from Islington continued to be taken, apparently until his death;  Tom Watson wrote that the Chief Constable of Suffolk warned against Righton being allowed to live at the estate but was ignored.

“Lord Henniker, 77, told the Standard he did not know Righton and was not responsible for him living on the estate”

Righton was convicted by a magistrates court in September 1992 of importing child pornography magazines and photographs after Customs and Excise intercepted material being sent to him from the Netherlands that April.

A police raid on his home, where he lived with Richard Alston, uncovered other paedophile magazines, and letters to and from other paedophiles containing details of abuse. He was fined £900 with £75 costs for importing child abuse images, had the magazines destroyed, and was cautioned for an historical assault.

Prince’s Trust ‘covering its backside’ over child migrant abuse, David Hill says

Former Australian ABC managing director tells UK inquiry the youth charity set up by Prince Charles had child abuse files years before expressing abhorrence

10 July 2017

The former Australian ABC managing director David Hill has accused a youth charity set up by Prince Charles of “covering its backside” by denying it had known of serious abuse suffered by child migrants sent to Australia.

Hill told a UK national inquiry in London on Monday that the Prince’s Trust had recently criticised the Fairbridge Society over the physical and sexual abuse suffered by children who were sent to its farm schools in Australia.

Fairbridge had high-level connections in the UK, including royalty, when it was running the Australian schools in the 1950s and 60s. Fairbridge was absorbed in 2011 by the Prince’s Trust, a youth charity set up by Prince Charles in 1976

Hill told the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse on Monday that he was sent to a Fairbridge farm school at Molong in NSW in 1959.

In May the society heard from many former child migrants about the appalling treatment they received at institutions run by Fairbridge, the Christian Brothers in Western Australia and other church and charity groups.

It heard that children were forced to work barefoot on farms or in quarries, their schooling was inadequate, their food substandard and they were regularly beaten and in many cases sexually abused by their so-called carers.

Hill said Fairbridge had in the past routinely lied and denied any wrongdoing when confronted about the abuse. He said the Fairbridge files had been with the Prince’s Trust for the past six years and contained many references to abuse.

Hill noted that the inquiry had received a letter from the Prince’s Trust in recent days expressing its abhorrence of the abuse suffered at Fairbridge farm schools. But he said he suspected the trust of cynicism as it had not previously acknowledged such abuse despite it being in the records they held.

“I can’t help thinking that the Prince’s Trust is simply covering its backside,” he said.

Hill was one of nearly 7,000 British children in state or charity care who were sent to Australia up until the 1970s, supposedly to improve their prospects. He said a 1956 inspection of Australian institutions had resulted in a blacklist of places that were deemed “unfit for children”.

But because the Fairbridge Society had royal and aristocratic backing the blacklist was torn up and its farm schools continued to operate.

That meant “hundreds more children, including me and many as young as four”, continued to be sent into conditions “harsher than at adult prisons in Australia”, Hill said.

Child migrants kept being sent to farm schools in Australia despite officials knowing some harboured paedophile rings

  • British child migrants were sent to Australian farm schools with paedophiles
  • A U.K. inquiry is examining sexual, physical and emotional abuse of children
  • Catholic Christian Brothers and royal-back Fairbridge Society worst offenders

Child migrants kept being trafficked from Britain to Australia despite officials knowing that some institutions they were sent to harboured pedophile rings, a U.K. inquiry was told.

Dr Margaret Humphreys of the Child Migrants Trust told the child sexual abuse inquiry in London that recruiters were sent to the U.K. to select children for church and charity-run farm schools in Australia.

‘We would categorise that now as child trafficking.

Among the worst offenders were the Catholic order the Christian Brothers who ran farm schools in Western Australia and the royals-backed Fairbridge Society which ran farm schools in NSW.

There was knowledge that some of the institutions were quite clearly pedophile rings,’ Humphreys told the inquiry.

She said the sexual abuse of even one child should have prompted an inquiry but that didn’t happen and hundreds of children were abused.

They were left ‘lonely and isolated’ to deal with the abuse on their own, she said.

Humphreys slammed the defence that such abuse was in line with the ‘standards of the day’.

‘When was it ever the standards of the day to rape children, to abuse children in this way?’ she said.

From 1974 to 1977

Haywood is chairman of Albany Trust – during this time he coaxed into existence a booklet entitled Paedophilia: Some Questions and Answers along with fellow Albany Trustees, members of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE’s Keith Hose and Tom O’Carroll) and the Paedophile Action League (PAL).

It was abandoned after a trustee saw a draft and branded it monstrous.”

One of the Booklet’s stated aims was to argue for the positive social benefits paedophiles brought to society:

“… about paedophilia, and to argue that those involved represent no special threat to society, but on the contrary are often a force for social good.”

Sir John Major and Gordon Brown will give evidence to child sexual abuse inquiry

Two former prime ministers will be called to give evidence to the public inquiry into child abuse next week as it examines the ill-treatment of children sent abroad under state-approved migration programmes.

Sir John Major and Gordon Brown are the first prominent public figures to be asked to account for the conduct of state institutions before the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

Sir John is to give evidence about his government’s response as the scandal of how British children were abused in farm schools and church institutions in Australia emerged during the 1990s.

In 1983 he wrote to one MP stating that Britain was not responsible for the way child migrants had been treated in other countries.

John Major lambasted over child migrants

July 22 2017

The former prime minister is facing criticism for his handling of the issue of the ill-treatment of child migrants who were deported from Britain to Australia.

Sir John Major should have been called before a public inquiry to explain why his government refused to accept any responsibility for the plight of child migrants, a leading campaigner said yesterday.

Margaret Humphreys, director of the Child Migrants Trust, told the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) that as the scale of the scandal emerged in the 1990s her efforts to engage the Conservative government were in vain. Sir John and other ministers repeatedly said that the issue of ill-treatment of the migrants was a matter for governments in Australia and other countries.

Child abuse inquiry may demand access to royal archives

Mar 11, 2017

Britain’s largest public inquiry could seek access to the royal archives after hearing evidence that they hold material relevant to investigations into child abuse cover-ups.

The independent inquiry into child sexual abuse (IICSA) — which has declared that “no one, no matter how apparently powerful, will be allowed to obstruct our inquiries” — believes that the archives contain evidence about Fairbridge, a charity with high-level royal connections which was heavily involved in child migration schemes.

Thousands of children suffered harsh physical punishment and sexual assaults at remote farm schools run by Fairbridge in Western Australia, which were visited by members of the royal family.

http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/cd96a686-05d0-11e7-976a-0b4b9a1a67a3

 

Betrayed children sold into slavery

Children in the dining hall of Fairbridge Molong in 1948.

The British government betrayed thousands of child migrants sent to Australia, and a key charity ­supported by British ­aristocracy and even touching the royal family has refused to apologise for ­appalling abuse.

Former ABC managing director David Hill, a child migrant at one of the Fairbridge Society’s biggest farms at Molong, western NSW, will make the claim today before the British independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

Mr Hill will also call for the charity to publicly apologise and the British government to ­provide child migrants full ­redress and compensation.

About 7000 underprivileged children were transported to ­Australia between 1913 and 1966 as part of the Fairbridge scheme, targeted at ‘‘orphans and waifs to prevent the vices of professional pauperism’’.

But the British government not only knew of the dreadful Dickensian conditions suffered by the children, all of them underprivileged and physically and emotionally abused on the farms as child labourers in the Australian bush, they then organised for the society to get more money to transport more children.

The UK Fairbridge Society refuses to acknowledge or apologise for the treatment meted out to the children.

The inquiry has heard that 60 per cent of the children sent to Fairbridge Molong were sexually abused. Fairbridge officials have told the inquiry that responsibility for the children lay with the NSW officials of the scheme, at odds with documentary evidence subsequently unearthed showing that all major decisions and power was at the British end.

Mr Hill will tell the inquiry that none of the improved conditions were carried out — not even the most basic of comforts such as a pillow to sleep on, nor was there any accountability.

Under the new conditions the farms were to provide apprenticeships or training schemes but none was provided. Children left school at 15 to work on the largely self-sufficient farm running the piggery, slaughtering the animals for food and growing crops.

Mr Hill told The Australian he couldn’t understand how the government could continue to send children to the farm when they had been warned of the horrendous conditions the children faced.

The documents show that the children farms were condemned as unfit for children and they began suspending the migration but Fairbridge officials went ballistic and the Home Office quietly tore out the black list and hundreds more children, including me, were then condemned to such a fate,’’ Mr Hill said.

“A year later the British government then got involved in painful negotiations with the UK Fairbridge Society to modernise conditions, yet none of the ­reforms were introduced.

‘’I was sent out in 1959 and not one of the changes were implemented …. the changes were supposed to make the conditions more homely and make the farm closer to a family situation. But when I was there from 1959 for just under three years none were introduced, there were no pillows let alone a comforting arm.’’

Mr Hill’s opening statement will mark the beginning of the third stage of the British inquiry, focusing on institutional failures.

Documents of the Fairbridge Society show that there was concern for one principal, accused of sexual assaults through the 1940s but he was not removed from his position until the mid 1950s by the British commissioners.

In 1956 there was such concern about the conditions, a British commission travelled to the 26 Australian child migrant farms and subsequently black-listed 10 of them, including Fairbridge Molong, for their subhuman ­facilities.

But Fairbridge Society secretary WR Vaughan stormed into Australia House in the Strand and threatened to involve the ­society president, the Duke of Gloucester, who was the Australian former governor-general and Queen Elizabeth’s uncle.

Not only was the explosive ­report then sequestered in the Home Office files, the government later agreed with the society to increase its funding on the basis that conditions for the children improved.

Mr Hill’s 2007 book The Forgotten Children detailed stories of the children at the home, which sparked a successful $24 million class action by more than 160 of the Molong children in the NSW Supreme Court.

But Mr Hill’s further evidence of the British government cover-up will provide uncomfortable hearing for Prince Charles’ foundation, The Prince’s Trust, which merged with Fairbridge Foundation in 2010.

I am really angry with Fairbridge. …They just wiped their hands and walked away.” The charity, now known as the Fairbridge Foundation, continues to work with underprivileged children in Australia and Britain.

Unlike Barnardo’s, which has acknowledged that its child migrant scheme was “shameful” and “barbaric”, Fairbridge has refused to apologise for past injustices.

It argued in a submission to an inquiry by the Australian Senate in 2001 that nothing seriously wrong took place at its migrant centres.

“We have conceded all along that the treatment of children was not perfect,” said the chairman of Fairbridge in Australia, John Kennedy. “But what good would an apology do?”

Abuse inquiry: Australian orphanage was ‘feast of kids’

1 Mar 2017

A former child migrant, sent from Wales to an Australian orphanage, has told a child abuse inquiry how it was a “feast of kids” for paedophiles working there.

Castledare orphanage near Perth, run by the Christian Brothers order, was like “a legal paedophile ring”, he said.

The witness told the inquiry: “If someone did it in the public eye, he’d go to court, he’d get sentenced and he’d serve time.

“If he’d got a habit on, if you’re a Christian Brother then it seemed to be a free-for-all.

“We knew what would happen if you told somebody, especially in authority, they would say ‘this doesn’t happen here.'”

He went on to claim that Brother Murphy was later “transferred from place to place” to effectively hide him.

He said his time at the orphanage still haunted him and was “probably something I will never forget”.

The inquiry also heard from another former child migrant, Oliver Cosgrove, who is now in his late sixties and who also lived at Castledare.

He said the Christian Brothers, who ran the home, would visit the children’s beds at night.

The first phase of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse is looking at the way organisations have protected children outside the UK.

Between 7,000 and 10,000 children were moved from the UK to Australia after World War Two.

They were recruited by religious institutions from both the Anglican and Catholic churches, or charities, including Barnardo’s and the Fairbridge Society.

Child migrants ‘used for perverted desires’ in orphanage

Mar 3 2017

A former child migrant has described the Australian orphanage he was sent to as “a concentration camp”.

statement by John Francis Hanley was read to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).

Mr Hanley was migrated to Australia aged six and placed in the Castledare Orphanage near Perth, run by Roman Catholic order the Christian Brothers.

The children were “beaten, abused and used for the Brothers’ perverted desires,” the inquiry heard.

Mr Hanley, who was born in 1947, described being sexually abused by two Christian Brothers, both in his bed and in their rooms.

Another man – who he said “was part of the Christian Brothers paedophile ring” – collected boys from the home and abused them elsewhere, the inquiry heard.

Another former child migrant described to the inquiry the abuse she suffered at Goodwood Orphanage near Adelaide.

The anonymous witness – who was sent to Australia in 1949 – said “she was beaten into submission” by the time she left the home.

She gave evidence that during her time at the orphanage, the institution was visited by the then Archbishop of Adelaide Matthew Beovitch.

A group of the British girls “got together” and decided to tell him about the beatings.

After 2 1/2 years ICSA inquiry hears evidence from its first non-expert witness. Marcelle O’Brien, born Worthing, shipped to Australia.

IICSA child sex abuse inquiry public hearings under way

2/27/17

Former child migrants are to give “very emotional accounts” about the physical and sexual abuse they faced, the first public hearing in the independent inquiry into historical child abuse in England and Wales has been told.

Thousands of British children were sent to Australia and other parts of the British Empire up to 1974.

Many were exposed to “unacceptable depravity”, the inquiry heard.

A lawyer speaking on behalf of the UK government expressed “deep regret”.

Inquiry counsel Henrietta Hill QC said claims of “systematic sexual abuse” in institutions and work environments would be heard.

The children, she said, were sent without consent of parents, wrongly told they were orphans, and denied basic details about their family backgrounds during their future lives.

One of those giving evidence is David Hill who aged 12, was sent overseas with his two brothers to the Fairbridge Farm School in Western Australia.

He told the hearing: “We’ll never be able to undo the great wrong that was done to these children. But what is important to the survivors of sexual abuse is where this inquiry is satisfied with the evidence – name the villains.

“Many of them are beyond the grave and therefore beyond the law but it would bring a great deal of the comfort to the people who as children were victims of these children if they were named and shamed.”

In 2009, the Australian government apologised for the cruelty shown to the child migrants.

Britain also made an apology in 2010. The apology contained no specific mention of sexual abuse.

The abuse scandal of the British children sent abroad

The first phase of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) inquiry is looking at the way organisations have protected children outside the UK.

Between 7,000 and 10,000 children were moved to Australia after World War Two.

They were recruited by religious institutions from both the Anglican and Catholic churches, or well-meaning charities, including Barnardo’s and the Fairbridge Society, with the aim of giving them a better life.

Many, however, went on to suffer physical and sexual abuse in homes and so-called farm schools run by religious orders and charities.

Allegations children were picked by paedophiles to travel abroad and claims of a cover-up are expected to be made.

Aswini Weereratne QC, representing the Child Migrants Trust (CMT) support organisation, said this “long overdue inquiry” would hear of a “crushing catalogue of sexual abuse, deprivation, violence and abuse”.

She said the UK government “does not seek to defend” what she described as a “shameful period in the UK’s recent history”.

Ms Weereratne said the inquiry will hear from 22 former child migrants – their average age was nine when deported and one was aged only three or four years old.

The inquiry began with opening statements from chairwoman Prof Alexis Jay and lawyers Henrietta Hill QC and Aswini Weereratne QC

The abuse that some of the children sent abroad were said to have suffered included “torture, rape and slavery”, Ms Weereratne said.

Opening the inquiry, chairwoman Prof Alexis Jay said the task of the panel is to examine the extent to which public and private institutions have failed to protect children from sexual abuse in the past.

Speaking on behalf of former child migrant Oliver Cosgrove, who was sent to Australia in 1941, Imran Khan said: “(It was) a scheme to populate the empire with good, white British stock and which led to the physical, emotional and sexual abuse of countless children, many thousands of miles away from their families.

He added: “The fact that the witness statements are so similar in the accounts they give of abuse can mean only one thing: This was a systematic and institutional problem.”

For the government, Samantha Leek QC said: “Child migration is wrong. It should not have been sanctioned or facilitated…

“The lifelong consequences for those involved are a matter of deep and sincere regret.”

A £6m family restoration fund was set up to allow the migrants to travel to the UK and ministers are now considering extending it.

The independent inquiry was set up after the death of Sir Jimmy Savile in 2011 when hundreds of people came forward to say he had abused them as children.

The hearings are taking place at the International Dispute Resolution Centre in central London, with the first phase concerning Australia expected to last 10 days.

THE FAIRBRIDGE SOCIETY. PRES H.R.H THE DUKE OF GLOUCESTER

Threatened with Duke of Gloucester’s (11th Governor-General of Australia 1945-47 intervention to allow children to continue to be sent abroad


A woman who was sent from England to Australia as a child was molested and left so hungry she ate grain meant for pigs, an inquiry has heard.

Marcelle O’Brien, now in her 70s, was four years old when she was sent to a home in Pinjarra, western Australia, run by the Fairbridge Society.

They were recruited by religious institutions from both the Anglican and Catholic churches, or charities, including Barnardo’s and the Fairbridge Society

She was molested by her school’s deputy principal and caned, the inquiry heard.

Ms O’Brien is the first victim to give evidence to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

She described the “mental cruelty” and “sadistic” treatment she endured at the home where she was forced to do “slave labour”.

The inquiry heard she had been told “you’ve got no parents – they’re all dead”.

The inquiry heard that Ms O’Brien’s mother was unaware where daughter had gone.

Henrietta Hill QC, counsel to the inquiry, asked: “Is it your understanding that your mother did not know that you had gone to Australia?”

“That’s true, yes,” Ms O’Brien replied, before adding: “She didn’t know where

The Fairbridge Society in whose care Marcelle was trusted, had royal and establishment supporters. The evidence showed it was prepared to discredit the birth parents of its children.

But the names of the Fairbridge deputy principal Marcelle O’Brien says indecently assaulted her, and the “cottage mother” who treated her so badly, were not given, despite calls for the “guilty to be named”.

This is not a court. The inquiry has no powers of prosecution, only the remit to make “findings of fact”.

The foster mother later wrote to the Queen in an effort to get Ms O’Brien back to the UK, the inquiry was told.

Subsequent correspondence between the Queen’s Lady in Waiting and the Fairbridge Society was read out at the hearing.

“The child’s undesirable mother wanted her emigrated,” said a letter from the society to the Lady in Waiting.

Ms O’Brien told the inquiry this was untrue, adding: “She never wanted that. She wouldn’t have wanted that.”

The palace was apparently reassured by the Fairbridge response.

A letter from the Lady in Waiting to the society said “the Queen was pleased to hear” that it was considered to be in Ms O’Brien’s interests to remain at the school.

Ms O’Brien told the inquiry panel: “They didn’t take any notice. The Royal Family just didn’t want to know anything. They stopped you from going back to your own original home.”

Please explain how the Queen/Mother tried to ‘rescue’ her? This is someone’s real trauma not a fairytale!

 

Disgusting how journalists treat survivors. If they’re not attacking them they’re contriving a romantic tale.

 

Yes Marcelle did write to the Royals too by the sound of it

Peter Bagshaw also wrote

 

For those following today’s hearing, this is a 1951 letter from Buckingham Palace to the Fairbridge Society

The society had assured a Lady in Waiting to the then Queen – wife of King George VI – that Marcelle O’Brien was “happily settled” abroad

Here’s the initial letter to Fairbridge which says the then Queen – wife of the king – had received a letter from Ms O’Brien’s foster mother

The Fairbridge letter said “the child’s undesirable mother wanted her emigrated” but Marcelle O’Brien told the hearing this was untrue

 

Survivor testimony @ Child Abuse Inquiry yesterday & today – unimaginable wickedness. All with longterm collusion of HMG. National shame.

 Child abuse inquiry faced strong calls yesterday to ‘name the guilty’.
Many of those related to child migrants will now be dead

Aswini Weereratne for the Child Migrants Trust says it is unhappy with the number of perpetrators’ names being withheld from the hearings

Lawyers back call for national child abuse inquiry to name perpetrators

Aswini Weereratne QC says it is an ‘issue of open justice’ that the redacted names of abusers be overturned

1 Mar 2017

Lawyers have called for more transparency from the national child abuse inquiry over the naming of the perpetrators after their identities were withheld from the public hearings.

Aswini Weereratne QC, who represents the Child Migrant Trust, said she was unhappy about the ciphering of the names of abusers at the public hearing particularly as many of them are now dead.

“I want to put it on the record,” she said. “Really it is about the naming of abusers. It is really an issue of open justice that they should be heard.” Weereratne was speaking on the second day of the inquiry’s first public hearings. She indicated she may challenge the whole basis on which the redaction of abusers’ names was being applied.

Abused and publicly flogged: the UK child migrants sent for a better life in Australia

Terrible to hear children spoken of as ‘stock’ and sent to ‘distribution centres’.

Child migrants sent to live in Australia may have been sex abuse victims before they left the UK

...new evidence from a public inquiry in Australia that suggests many had already been suffering at the hands of predators before they left the UK.

Gordon Brown says the Home Office was warned of the risks child migrants faced abroad at least a decade before the policy was finally stopped in 1970.

More than 130,000 UK children, some as young as three, were sent to former colonies such as Australia from the 20s to the 60s with the promise of a better life.

Instead they were often left vulnerable to cruelty and – in many cases –physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

Mr Brown apologised on behalf of the nation in February 2010 while still PM. He writes: “My apology was incomplete.

“We now know that scores of children were themselves subject to abuse before they were deported to foreign countries.”

One victim revealed they were just five when the sickening attacks started.

Mr Brown said the new evidence needs to be addressed urgently by Britain’s ­Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, which was set up in 2014 following the Jimmy Savile case.

That was partly modelled on the Australian inquiry. The UK probe has been beset by ­difficulties and the resignations of three successive chairmen but is now trying to proceed under the leadership of Rotherham abuse expert Professor Alexis Jay.

Mr Brown reveals the new evidence paints a “picture of violence and rape”.

He also warns that a Family Restoration Fund set up by campaigners at the Child Migrants Trust – to which the Government contributed £6million in 2010 – is due to run out of cash within weeks.

It was supposed to help those sent abroad as kids be reunited with their families but at least 100 of them have not received any aid.

Mr Brown writes: “That funding runs out in March 2017.

“But even now at least 100 migrants are waiting for the Child Migrants Trust to trace their families.

“Some are only now in the early stage of making contact with their UK relatives. Others have yet to come forward for help.

“It would be inhumane to deprive them of their last chance to meet their kith and kin.

UK Government accused of knowingly sending children to ‘crook’ institutions in Australia

Nov 26 2016

The UK Government continued to send child migrants to Australian institutions despite knowing they were being mistreated, according to allegations in a submission lodged to the UK inquiry into institutional child sexual abuse.

Inquiry could prompt more legal action against UK Government

Former child migrants have already successfully brought a class action against Australian authorities over the abuse suffered at Fairbridge.

David Hill, who in 1959, aged 12, was sent to Fairbridge Farm School in New South Wales, said “the British government knew that these institutions were crook and unfit for children”.

Mr Hill said legal action against the UK government following the airing of the allegations against them at the UK inquiry was likely.

“My guess is that as a result of this British inquiry you will see former British child migrants take action against the British Government, and good on them,” he said.

Workshy Goddard would never have been able to do the child migrants module – she’d already announced there was no CSA problem in NZ despite UN deploring the backlog in cases as inhumane for complainants – everytime wasted time & £££ of CSA Inquiry is trotted out I think of her


Britain’s Child Migrants

...unanswered questions about the rationale for the child migration policy and who drove it forward within a context of secrecy, deception and lies.

…need to address the relationship between the charities, the churches and the state in the implementation of this policy.

The forced migration of children as a social policy began in the 17th Century and continued for 350 years until coming to an end in 1970.

 It is estimated that 130,000 child victims of 200,000 parents were sent to Canada, New Zealand, Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia) and Australia. Most child migrants had no idea of their birth families or the reason why they were sent to the colonies and parents were not told what had happened to their children. They were sent to populate the Empire with ‘good, white British stock’. Many of the children lived in large institutions and were used as cheap labour suffering abuse, cruelty and neglect.

The boys were trained as farm labourers and the girls as domestic servants.

But instead of a happy new life in the sun, many children encountered a Dickensian regime of poor food, hard labour and callous treatment.

As early as 1882, Dr Barnardo was sending to Australia, New Zealand and Canada ‘young people of good physique, trained to make use of their hands, of tested moral character, of an age where they were easily adaptable with few home or family ties to bind them to the mother country’ (Williams, 1943 p118).

The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry in Northern Ireland has already heard evidence from child migrants, as has the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

We lived in constant fear of being flogged or molested. We had no dignity or self-esteem. I would cry my eyes out at night and wonder what I had ever done to deserve such treatment when I had committed no crime. We were told we were the sons of whores, the lowest form of humanity.

 We need to be heard so we never, ever see this happen again.

It is not yet known whether the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) in the UK will grant child migrants core participant status and therefore enable them to be legally represented.

It is concerning that the main IICSA public hearings are not accepting personal accounts of child abuse which are instead being presented through the Truth Project strand of the Inquiry which is not part of the legal process of prosecution and justice.
