The Kinnocks & Jo Cox

‘A beloved niece’ Lord Kinnock weeps on TV following the killing of Jo Cox

An emotional Lord Kinnock had tears running down his cheek as he described Mrs Cox as a “beloved niece”.

He told BBC Breakfast: “We’ve known Jo since she came to work for Glenys in the European Parliament 20 years ago, and it would be no exaggeration to say that both of us felt about her as if she was a beloved niece, because that’s the kind of relationship it was.

“She was wonderful company but she was also a ferociously effective political activist and she showed that before she became a Member of Parliament and we were hugely proud when she was selected and then elected.

“We both went up to speak for her and it was obvious then that the community had taken Jo to her heart – just like everybody else did.

Sir Alan Parker, the charity’s former chairman, was questioned by MPs on the international development select committee about the handling of investigations into claims against the former senior executives Justin Forsyth and Brendan Cox.

The Charity Commission is investigating the handling of cases in 2012 and 2015 and the organisation has stopped bidding for funds from the Department for International Development pending the outcome.

Sir Alan was asked why Save the Children had spent money donated by the public to hire the City law firm Harbottle & Lewis to send “aggressive” letters to media.


Save the Children whistleblower warns it should not have taken SIX years for anyone to quit over ‘inappropriate behaviour’ after chairman Sir Alan Parker resigns amid cover up claims

19 Apr 2018

  • Sir Alan said there was an urgent need to rebuild confidence in the sector

A whistleblower at Save the Children has complained it took six years for anyone resign over claims of ‘inappropriate behaviour’ at the charity.

Chairman Sir Alan Parker resigned last night following claims of a high-level cover-up of allegations against two executives at the charity’s UK arm.

Chief executive Justin Forsyth and policy director Brendan Cox have both quit over claims against them in recent weeks. Sir Alan faces no allegations personally.

But whistleblower Alexia Pepper de Caires today blasted the failure of the charity to intervene sooner, including after a report on misbehaviour in 2015.

Ms de Caires, who left the charity that year, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: ‘There was no culpability at the time and I’ve seen very little since then.

‘I haven’t seen enough evidence of the culture changing.’

She also said she was ‘curious about why it’s taken six years’ for someone to step down ‘who was in a position of power at the time’.

Ms de Caires told Today: ‘In my view this is not complex at all, this has always been very simple.

‘The message that we know and live and breath is to value women equally, which we have not seen at Save the Children’.

Sir Alan Parker resigned following claims of a high-level cover-up of allegations against two executives at the charity’s UK arm.

It comes a week after the Charity Commission said it was carrying out a statutory inquiry into Save the Children over the claims.

The watchdog is looking at whether the charity adequately reported what it knew about allegations against former chief executive Justin Forsyth and policy director Brendan Cox.

He also brought in his own lawyers to help with the cases instead of using the charity’s legal advisers.

As a result, formal investigations were abandoned and both men left discreetly.

Sir Alan has always denied a cover-up of the allegations.

The source said: ‘There were HR procedures that were in place to deal with Brendan and Justin.

‘Lawyers were contacted … then Alan came in, in both cases within 48 hours, saw the advice of Save the Children’s lawyers, ignored that advice and quickly brought in new lawyers.

‘HR were totally across it and said we have to deal with this, but Alan wasn’t happy … they did not follow Save [the Children]’s HR protocol. After Brendan left, the investigation into what he did just stopped.

‘The original lawyers’ letters are in the safe at Save [the Children] and the Commission are going to see them.’

Sir Alan is founder and chairman of the PR firm Brunswick. Gordon Brown is godfather to his youngest son, and when David Cameron left No10 he lived briefly at Sir Alan’s London home.

A 2015 report found Sir Alan’s ‘very close’ relationship with former Save the Children boss Mr Forsyth may have affected how he responded to complaints. Three women employees accused Mr Forsyth of inappropriate behaviour, for which he said he had apologised. He allegedly sent inappropriate texts and commented on what young female staff were wearing. It was claimed if the women did not reply, he would continue to pester them. Allegations were also made against Mr Cox, the charity’s former director of policy. He stepped down after admitting he had ‘made mistakes’.

Sir Alan was chairman of trustees at Save the Children UK when Mr Forsyth and Mr Cox left in 2015. He then went on to chair the board of Save the Children International.

The leaked 2015 report found that Sir Alan was ‘less than supportive’ when harassment claims were made by women working for the charity.

It described how Save the Children’s head of HR alerted Sir Alan to the issues. He said Sir Alan had said: ‘Justin Forsyth is very important to the organisation; people behave very differently when they’re abroad; they would have been tired; they would have needed some mutual support; what were the complainants doing by agreeing to go to his hotel room in the first place.’

The report said the head of HR was ‘frustrated’ by Sir Alan’s response ‘which he feared was a result of Sir Alan Parker and Justin Forsyth being close’.

One complainant was quoted as saying: ‘It’s more about who Alan is, and having Alan and his best mate Justin sort of talking to each other about how best to handle these girls.’

Two months ago Mr Forsyth admitted ‘personal mistakes’ over the claims he sent young women a barrage of text messages. The former aide to Tony Blair, who went on to become deputy executive director at Unicef, said he had engaged in ‘unsuitable and thoughtless conversations’ which he accepts ’caused offence and hurt’.

He faced three complaints between 2011 and 2015, the year he left the organisation. He later resigned from his job at Unicef.

Mr Forsyth also faced questions over whether he protected Mr Cox, the widower of murdered MP Jo Cox, after he was accused of inappropriate behaviour towards women.

Mr Cox admitted he had behaved in a way that caused women ‘hurt and offence’.

In 2016 alone, Save the Children investigated more than 200 complaints of misconduct against staff.

Last month, protesters from the Women’s Equality Party interrupted a Save the Children board meeting to call for Sir Alan’s resignation.

Alexia Pepper de Caires, a former employee of the charity, read out a statement saying men at Save the Children UK had ‘disempowered women, sexualised their presence in the workforce and minimised their experiences’.

Sir Alan was due to leave in December but ‘felt it right at this moment to bring forward his succession’, the charity said. Announcing his resignation, he wrote: ‘Given the complex mix of challenges the organisation and the sector is facing, it is my view that a change is needed.’

He added: ‘In Save the Children UK we dealt with some unacceptable workplace behaviour, involving harassment, in our head office in Farringdon in 2012 and 2015. These issues are now subject to further review by the Charity Commission.’

Pernille Lopez, on behalf of the Save the Children Association and its international board, said: ‘We would like to thank Alan for his immense contribution to Save the Children over the past ten years.’

Who is Sir Alan Parker? The multi-millionaire PR guru who goes on beach holidays with the Camerons

Sir Alan Parker is a remarkably well-connected PR mogul who can claim allegiances across the political divide.

The son of a former British Rail chairman, he is reputed to be worth £130 million thanks to the success of Brunswick, the UK’s biggest financial PR firm, which he founded in 1987.

Before turning his hand to public relations, Sir Alan worked on an oil rig and managed rock bands.

Sir Alan Parker, pictured here with Samantha Cameron, is a well-connected PR mogul

A rebellious teenager, his anti-Establishment attitude meant he was denied a place at Oxford despite an excellent academic record. His unconventional approach to business is said to persist in his tendency to kick off his shoes during meetings.

Sir Alan, 62, started Brunswick in his parents’ front room in 1987, but the firm now boasts many high-profile clients, including EMI, Pearson, Reuters and Time Warner. It is thought to have advised more than a quarter of FTSE 100 listed firms.

Said to be a natural Labour supporter, Sir Alan was involved in attempts to rebrand Gordon Brown’s public image during his ailing premiership. Mr Brown is godfather to Sir Alan’s son, William.

But the PR guru has also holidayed with David Cameron. He and the former Tory leader were pictured hitting the beach together in South Africa. Samantha Cameron is an ambassador for Save the Children.

Sir Alan later lent one of his properties – a £16.8 million seven-bedroom townhouse in Holland Park – to Mr Cameron and his family after they left Downing Street.

The PR mogul was among business leaders who accompanied Mr Cameron on a trade mission to China in 2013 before being knighted for services to business, charitable giving and philanthropy.

In 2001, Sir Alan’s 24-year marriage to Caroline, an artist, ended in divorce. In 2007, he married Jane Hardman, who had worked at Brunswick. Both Mr Cameron and Mr Brown were guests at the wedding.

One of Sir Alan’s siblings is Nathaniel Parker, the actor best known for playing Inspector Lynley in the BBC crime series. His other brother Oliver is a respected director.

He is said to have use of a chauffeured Bentley and collects art by Sir Henry Moore as well as rare books. A keen angler, he owns half a £1.8million salmon beat – a stretch of river with fishing rights – on the Tay in Scotland.

Parker junior has inherited his father’s taste for rubbing shoulders with politicians. At Parker’s wedding to his second wife and former Brunswick employee Jane Hardman, the then Prime Minister Tony Blair and Chancellor Gordon Brown were guests.

The business has been good to Parker. He has a collection of Henry Moore sculptures, owns a stretch of the Tay in Scotland for salmon fishing and is estimated to be worth more than £100 million. Brunswick represents Charter, the engineering firm that has agreed to a £1.5 billion takeover approach from rival Colfax.


After graduating, Jo Cox worked as an adviser for Labour MP Joan Walley and then Glenys Kinnock.  Jo Cox also worked as an adviser to Sarah Brown.


Scotland Yard searching the Bodleian Library for Dickens Dossier on alleged child sex abuse

Vital information may be in the Barbara Castle archive

At least three people have tried unsuccessfully to access the (Barbara) Castle files to see if they contain the (Dickens) dossier, having found a lot of the material closed. Papers with restricted access include diary entries and correspondence with family members.

All of her correspondence with the former Labour Home Secretary Jack Straw between October 1981 and February 1999, as well as all correspondence between her and Neil and Glenys Kinnock between November 1981 and August 1996, is also marked “closed” on the library’s database, along with a letter she wrote to Neil Kinnock in December 1999.

The Kinnocks’ Friends:   Leo Abse, Claire Rayner, Helena Kennedy, Greville Janner, Owen Oyston

Despite his controversial views, Abse had his political supporters. Former Labour leader Neil Kinnock and his wife Glenys said:

“Leo was courageous, highly principled, very funny and totally unique.”

2004–2009 Neil Kinnock appointed head of the British Council 

The foreign secretary, Jack Straw, formally approved Mr Kinnock’s appointment on the recommendation of an independent panel set up to find Lady Helena Kennedy’s replacement. Kinnock said he was “pleased and greatly honoured” to succeed Lady Helena Kennedy.

The former Labour leader came to Brussels as commissioner in charge of transport under president Jacques Santer.

He was one of only four of the Santer team to be reappointed after mass resignations triggered by allegations of mismanagement and cronyism within the commission.

 In 1972 Claire Rayner was accused of “encouraging masturbation and promiscuity in prepubescent girls”.

Righton’s very close friend/fellow PIE member Charles Napier (half-brother to dominatrix client, John Whittingdale MP) was employed as a teacher by the British Council in Cairo even though he was already on List 99 as a banned teacher after his early conviction.

Present enquiries into paedophile cover-ups are likely to examine how Charles Napier managed to continue teaching even after his first conviction for indecent assault in 1972.  He was banned from teaching in the UK, but emigrated and by the late 1970s (already an active member of the Paedophile Information Exchange) was employed at a school in Sweden.


Former MI6 deputy director Sir Peter Hayman was married to Charles Napier’s cousin

Around the same time that Napier emigrated, his cousin’s husband – fellow paedophile Sir Peter Hayman – had returned from a stint as High Commissioner in Canada to become deputy director of MI6.

Incredibly Napier later became an assistant head of studies with the British Council in Cairo, and then taught in Istanbul.

The alleged network was said to include senior politicians from all three main parties, such as Leon Brittan, Greville Janner and Cyril Smith alongside a former head of MI6 Sir Peter Telford Hayman.[49]

A social worker, Teresa Johnson, who had worked with Carroll at Angell Road, said she had seen Mr Boateng at the home on up to six occasions during the mid-1980s.

Another witness claimed he had seen Mr Boateng during caravan holidays for children run by a charity, called the Association of Combined Youth Clubs. Carroll was a member of the ACYC.

The witness claimed Carroll had boasted of his friendship with Mr Boateng.

This witness told Newsnight: “John Carroll would regularly talk about him [Paul Boateng] being able to open doors for him.”

Lord Boateng told the BBC he has no recollection of going to Angell Road or of meeting Mr Carroll.

1991  Janner broke his silence on the affair,

Regarding the exact nature of his relationship with the boy, Janner said: ‘Long ago, when [he] was a deprived youngster living in a Leicestershire children’s home, my family and I tried unsuccessfully to help him. Now, after some 15 years of Beck’s influence, they [have] combined to make disgraceful and totally untrue allegations against me.’

The statement met with widespread applause in the Commons and warm words from such allies as Keith Vaz MP, who described Janner as ‘a brave man’ and whip Derek Foster, who passed on party leader Neil Kinnock’s ‘tremendous support.’

Actress and campaigner Joanna Lumley has been announced as a new patron of the Peter Tatchell Foundation.


A number of peers have also become patrons – Labour peers Lord Waheed Alli, Lord Michael Cashman, Baroness Joan Bakewell and Baroness Helena Kennedy, and Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Liz Barker.

On June 26, 1997, Mr Tatchell wrote a 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.


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.





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.

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.

Lambeth and Mrs. Thatcher: Research documentation available

In 1986, 32 Lambeth councillors were disqualified from political office and fined nearly a quarter of a million pounds for delaying levying the rate. Some have gone to high office; one Sir Stephen Bubb was recently knighted by David Cameron. Joan Walley has been the MP for Stoke since 1987. A number have since died.

The rate capping campaign involved powerful labour councils up and down the country and figures that are today influential in national politics. David Blunkett and Margaret Hodge were closely involved as were the high profile Ken Livingstone and Ted Knight.

Brussels whistleblower quits in despair

27 August, 2002

A European official whose whistle-blowing revelations sparked the resignation of the entire European Commision has quit, after declaring that nothing has changed.

In 1999, he went public with details of corruption, cronyism and abuse of power in the commission.

The entire team of 20 commissioners, headed by then president Jacques Santer, resigned in a symbolic gesture to demonstrate their commitment to cleaning up the commission’s act.

But Mr Van Buitenen says that, three years on, it is business as usual.

“Despite everything, I can’t see any change in Brussels,” he said.

The clean-up operation has been headed by the UK’s Neil Kinnock, administration commissioner and a commission vice-president.

But as long ago as March 2000 Mr Van Buitenen cast doubt on whether the reforms would achieve anything.

“(Mr Kinnock) has drawn up a nice reform plan which looks right but he does not tackle the people who committed the irregularities,” he said at the time. “They have been confirmed in their jobs or even promoted.”

Confidence in the commission’s inner purging was knocked again earlier this year, when another whistleblower, chief accountant Marta Andreasen, was forced from her job.

Revealed: How the Kinnocks have enjoyed an astonishing £10m ride on the EU gravy train

The Kinnocks’ son …Stephen Kinnock


January 2009 Stephen Kinnock – head of World Economic Forum’s Europe and Central Asia team

Kinnock has worked for the British Council for more than 12 years where he has held senior UK-based and international positions in Europe, Russia and Africa. Most recently, he was Programme Leader for Inter-Cultural Dialogue where he led the design and development of “Sharing Futures”, the British Council’s multi-country programme to engage with young people who are potentially vulnerable to negative radicalization, with a focus on the Middle East and South Asia. Prior to this, Kinnock was a British Council Director for Sierra Leone, north-west Russia and Brussels.


Stephen Kinnock worked as a research assistant at the European Parliament in Brussels before becoming a British Council Development and Training Services executive based in Brussels in 1997. He held various positions with the British Council

For much of the time since 2005, the couple have not lived in the same country, let alone the same house.




Jo Cox – husband Brendan Cox – He shared a photo of his wife while she was still in the hospital fighting for her life.

Brendan Cox had to resign from the charity Save the Children fund in November 2015 over allegations of behaving inappropriately with female members of staff.

Chief strategist Brendan Cox  and Chief executive Justin Forsyth (both men were senior advisers to former Prime Minister Gordon Brown)  both resign.

In the same year, Save the Children USA presented Tony Blair with a ‘global legacy award’.



More than 500 staff members signed an internal letter condemning the award, calling it “morally reprehensible”.

Asked if Sir Alan Parker had recommended Blair for the award, Warburton said: “It is simply wrong to suggest it was made at Sir Alan Parker’s suggestion. He was not part of the process.”

Sir Alan Parker, who is the chairman of both Save the Children UK and the PR company Brunswick, is an associate of Blair’s, and helped to hire Forsyth as the charity’s chief executive in 2010.

Blair attended Sir Parker’s wedding in 2008.

‘He grabbed her hips, pulled her hair and forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way’: Murdered MP Jo Cox’s husband was reported to police over sex assault claim in Harvard bar – nine months before his wife’s death

  • Woman reported Brendan Cox to U.S. police, claiming he assaulted her late at night at Harvard University in 2015; Mr Cox strongly denies the allegation
  • In report filed by police, she claims Mr Cox ‘grabbed [the woman] by the hips several times… forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way’; ‘touched her inappropriately’ in a restaurant
  • Complaint came soon after Mr Cox quit as senior exec with Save The Children in 2015 following separate claims of inappropriate behaviour towards staff

A new charity sex scandal erupted last night after it emerged that the husband of murdered Labour MP Jo Cox was once accused of groping a senior US government official.

The woman reported Brendan Cox to American police, claiming he assaulted her late at night at Harvard University – although Mr Cox strongly denies the allegation.

Her complaint came soon after Mr Cox quit as a senior executive with the Save The Children in 2015 following separate claims of inappropriate behaviour towards staff

According to a report filed by police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the woman claims Mr Cox:

  • ‘Grabbed [the woman] by the hips several times, pulled her hair and forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way’;
  • ‘Touched her inappropriately’ in a restaurant and tried to ‘push’ her into drinking more alcohol;
  • ‘Pulled her towards him and touched her stomach’ despite her telling him to stop;
  • Texted her later, asking: ‘Are you touching yourself?’

The woman was so upset she ‘couldn’t even look at Mr Cox’. She also said she ‘feared repercussions’ from him. In the police report, seen by The Mail on Sunday, the ‘incident type/offence’ is described as ‘indecent assault and battery on person 14 or over.’

Mr Cox’s lawyers last night said he denies the ‘spurious allegations’ and says no sexual assault took place.

This newspaper knows the identity of the woman, who is in her thirties, and has decided to protect her anonymity.

The disclosure of the report’s existence comes as Oxfam is reeling from claims it failed to warn other agencies about staff who quietly resigned after being caught using prostitutes in Haiti.

The report – filed by police in Cambridge, Massachusetts – says that on Thursday, October 29, she went to Felipe’s (above), a restaurant in Harvard Square with Mr Cox. ‘While there and on the walk back, Mr Cox touched her inappropriately… touched her “ass” , grabbed her by the hips several times, pulled her hair and forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way’

Mr Cox married Jo in 2009 and, since her murder, a week before the EU referendum in 2016, he has focused on raising the couple’s two children and helping to run the Jo Cox Foundation, set up ‘to channel the energy and determination generated by Jo’s life into practical efforts to advance the causes she championed’.

The alleged US incident involving Mr Cox took place in October 2015 weeks after he left his post as senior Save The Children strategist in London following claims of inappropriate behaviour towards female members of staff. Mr Cox denied any wrongdoing there.

Mr Cox attended a two-week course at Harvard’s prestigious John F Kennedy School of Government run by the World Economic Forum, which also organises the annual economic summit in Davos, Switzerland.

Mr Cox, who worked in Downing Street for Prime Minister Gordon Brown in 2010, was named a Young Global Leader by the forum in 2012. He attended the 2015 Harvard course along with nearly 100 international rising-star charity officials and civil servants.

Past Young Global Leaders include David Cameron and Google co-founder Larry Page.

The woman – who was studying at Harvard at the time – complained to police in Cambridge, where the university is located, on November 6.

Under the heading ‘offender,’ the report, dated six days later, says the ‘suspect’ is ‘Brendan Cox, white, about 38’ and that the ‘female victim’, who is named in the file, described her alleged assailant as having brown hair and being 5ft 10in to 6ft tall.’

The report says that on Thursday, October 29, she went to Felipe’s, a restaurant in Harvard Square with Mr Cox.

‘While there and on the walk back, Mr Cox touched her inappropriately… touched her “ass” , grabbed her by the hips several times, pulled her hair and forced his thumb into her mouth in a sexual way.’

He ‘also pulled her towards him and touched her stomach’ even though she had ‘made it clear’ she wanted no sexual contact. ‘She received a text later in the evening from Cox that read “are you touching yourself?”’

The report records the woman’s belief that Mr Cox was trying to ply her with drink. She had had ‘three glasses of wine and one tequila shot’ during the evening and believed ‘Cox was pushing her to consume alcohol’ despite her telling him she did not normally do so.

‘Cox kept saying “Let’s go to your place” or “Let’s go to my place”’ after she had told him she wanted no physical contact.

‘Unwanted touching’ took place between midnight and 1.30am’ and all of it made the woman ‘feel extremely uncomfortable’.

She is also said to have mentioned the incident to Harvard.

It is understood police did not investigate the matter at the request of the woman. The report states she ‘only wanted the incident documented at this time’ and had been ‘reluctant’ to complain to police because she ‘feared repercussions from the suspect.’

Cambridge Police last night confirmed the existence of the case file to The Mail on Sunday.

Mr Cox declined to comment last night, but his lawyers said he denies the ‘spurious allegations’ and says no sexual assault took place.

They added that the fact Mr Cox has never been contacted or questioned by the Massachusetts police was further evidence that the claims were untrue. They also questioned the motivation of the complainant.

That Cox was the subject of a complaint so close to him leaving Save The Children will put renewed focus on British charities as both the Government and the Charity Commission last night announced probes into whether Oxfam covered up the scandal of its workers having orgies with prostitutes after the earthquake in Haiti in 2010.

Chief executive Mark Goldring told ITV News that it was ‘highly likely’ public donations to Oxfam would have fallen if the charity had revealed the scandal. But he denied any cover-up.

The charity says it disclosed sexual misconduct to the regulator.

Last night International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt hinted the Government could pull Oxfam’s funding, which amounted to £31.7 million last year.

She said: ‘We will not work with any organisation that does not live up to the high standards on safeguarding and protection that we require.’

Save the Children inquiry over response to harassment claims

Brendan Cox resigned from his role at Save the Children after complaints

Brendan Cox resigned from his role at Save the Children after complaints

Save the Children is to be investigated by the regulator over how it handled serious allegations of misconduct and harassment against senior staff.

The inquiry will focus on how the charity dealt with complaints that Justin Forsyth and Brendan Cox, its former chief executive and policy director respectively, sexually harassed young women employees.

The Charity Commission opened a statutory inquiry after receiving “new information”, it said last night. It is concerned that the charity may have withheld the full extent of allegations from the regulator in 2015 when the alleged incidents were first reported. It is a blow to Save the Children, which has commissioned its own review of its working culture. Kevin Watkins, the chief executive who was a trustee at the time of…

New charity scandal as Save The Children executive quits after women’s complaints of ‘inappropriate behaviour’

Chief strategist Brendan Cox denied the allegations but quit in September

Mr Cox, Save The Children’s director of policy and advocacy,

The women threatened to ‘make a huge fuss’ when the charity did nothing

Another children’s charity was rocked last night after a senior executive at Save The Children resigned over allegations of ‘inappropriate behaviour’.

Chief strategist Brendan Cox denied allegations against him but left in September. The charity’s £160,000-a-year chief executive Justin Forsyth has also resigned for unconnected reasons.

Both were senior advisers to former Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Mr Cox’s wife, Jo, is a Labour MP and former aide to Mr Brown’s wife Sarah. Mrs Cox also runs the Labour Women’s Network where she is ‘equalities and discrimination’ adviser.

An insider said: ‘Some people were unhappy there was no proper internal investigation into the allegations. Brendan packed his bags and left suddenly.’

One individual who has worked with Save The Children said: ‘Several of the women complained about inappropriate behaviour by Brendan. When the charity did nothing about it they threatened to make a huge fuss. Shortly afterwards it was announced that Brendan was leaving. Then we heard Justin was going as well.’

Cox, an international campaigner and activist, began his career in the aftermath of the civil war in the former Yugoslavia working with children affected by the conflict and has a long standing interest in refugee policy. In 2011 he was appointed a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum and in 2012 was selected as one of the top forty young leaders in international development by Devex.

Brendan Cox runs his own blog. He recently played a major role in civil society campaigning for the Sustainable Development Goals as the Director of the Policy and Advocacy at Save the Children. Prior to this he ran a global research project and published a series of reports analyzing global development campaigns and looking at future trends and opportunities.

Mr. Cox previously served as Special Advisor for Africa and International Development to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Before that, he was Chief Executive of Crisis Action.

Brendan Cox Labour MP Jo Cox’s Husband

…husband Brendan Cox is tweeting out a Go Fund Me link to his wife’s ‘favourite causes’ and one of those is the White Helmets.

The White Helmets is not a charity, and neither are they ‘the good guys’ despite their white helmets. The White Helmets is the military propaganda arm of the Allies attempt at regime change by destabilising Syria – and this is exactly what is causing the refugee component of Europe’s migrant crisis in the first place.

The White Helmets also does not need our hard-earned cash. It is well-funded by George Soros’s organisations, the UK, the US and the Syrian Opposition Party in its work, which is mainly with the rebel group Jabat al-Nusra, the infamous al-Qaeda affiliate.

The White Helmets are represented PR-wise by Purpose whose co-founder Jeremy Heimans also helped to create Avaaz. Avaaz is a global “pro-democracy” group which has been accused of furthering the US/EU agenda in the Middle East and elsewhere. It is also Avaaz that it encouraging, on social media, a sort of hands-around-the-world show of sympathy for Jo Cox today.

Revealed: Keith Vaz’s job with Iraqi tycoon Auchi

3 Feb 2001

Foreign Office Minister Keith Vaz accepted a job with a company owned by an Iraqi-born tycoon who is wanted for questioning over a massive European corruption scandal, The Observer can reveal.

Vaz, who is facing calls for his resignation over his business relationships, accepted a directorship of the company owned by Nadhmi Auchi, a British multi-millionaire facing inquiries over his role in an oil deal allegedly involving £40m of kickbacks.

Lord Norman Lamont on the board of the UK arm of Auchi’s operation


Mr Auchi (right) receiving the signed watercolour of the Houses of Parliament from  Lord Sainsbury


Tom Young: Without going into too much detail at the moment, it’s worth noting that Norman Lamont has extensive business ties with Le Cercle Member Nadhmi Auchi[15], most notably:

General Mediterranean Holding:

Lamont was not only close to Auchi through Le Cercle. After leaving government he joined the five-member financial board of Auchi’s General Mediterranean Holding, a Luxembourg-based holding company for more than 120 companies. Anno 2011 Lamont still sits on the board. Jacques Santer, a former finance and prime minister of Luxembourg who is known to be sympathetic to Opus Dei sits on the six-member main board of General Mediterranean Holding.

In 2009 the Belgian Marc Verwilghen joined the main board, which is rather puzzling. Verwilghen headed the independent Dutroux Commission and was among the few officials that were open to the information in X-Dossiers which implicated Belgium’s elite in various child abuse rings.’

Now by some accounts Leon Brittan was involved in abuse and abuse images during his time in Brussels, which may be the reason I attracted Nick Clegg‘s attention… it could also be regarding the Privy Council meeting last year where key Le Cercle member Julian Lewis was sworn into the Privy Council:

It’s also well worth noting that along with the head of the (very iffy) inquiry into the Dutroux affair in Belgium, General Mediterranean Holdings board of directors has also included Keith Vaz [33], who chairs the Home Affairs Select Committee and has been pivotal in determining the suitability of candidates as chair of the UK independent inquiry into Child Abuse.
Of course, questions still remain about Vaz’s time on the councils of Richmond and Islington whilst abuse was occurring, as well as his prior support of Greville Janner.

I’ll expose further ties soon, along with showing how this all ties into the very same networks involved in the Contra Affair which led to N.W.A Music getting into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the careers of Dr Dre, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, JAY Z, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar and many others…

We’ll also work towards taking a look at Aegis Defence Services, who along with ties to Le Cercle, appear to have several links to a great deal of suspicious activity… on that note, this previous post regarding Aegis’ Chairman Nicholas Soames, Equerry to Prince Charles during the period he, Lord Mountbatten and Jimmy Savile were rubbing shoulders.”

Meanwhile, in New Zealand, there have been such newspaper headlines as, “‘Uncle Dickie’ the Sex Pervert” (N.Z. Truth, Sept.  8, 1987), since Mountbatten’s former chauffeur, Norman Nield, started revealing details of the late Lord Mountbatten’s alleged sexual exploitation of boys.

Lord Louis was a great grandson of Queen Victoria and the uncle of Prince Philip (consort of Queen Elizabeth II). Mountbatten was also a promiscuous bisexual who was famously rumored to have had an affair with Edward VIII (who was Prince of Wales at the time) when he accompanied him on his Empire tours (see photo above).

Back to Clement Freud, the link to Belgium provides another possible lead in the Madeline McCann case, as detailed here:

Clement Freud shared an office with Cyril Smith [1]

Cyril Smith and his friends Jimmy Savile and Leon Brittan associated with Keith Harding, a key member of the Paedophile Information Exchange. [6] Jeremy Thorpe, a close associate of Clement Freud was also involved.

Keith Harding was based in Islington, an area with deep ties to Organized Child Abuse, with extensive links to abuse in both Lambeth and Jersey.[7][8]

Keith Harding went on to become Worshipful Master of the Mercurius Masonic Lodge closely associated with GCHQ[9]

Clement Freud’s Son, Matthew Freud[10] is involved with the ‘Notting Hill Set'[11], many members of which including David Cameron are in the close circle of former Home Secretary Michael Howard

In the mid 1990s, whilst Michael Howard was Home Secretary, the Home Office received a dossier detailing abuse by Greville Janner, on which no substantial action was taken. This was at least the 4th warning they had received. [12]

It’s worth noting that around this time that current Prime Minister David Cameron and Patrick Rock, who has recently been found guilty of making indecent images of children[13], were working together as Political Advisors to Michael Howard[14].

Michael Howard is a member of the highly secretive organization ‘Le Cercle'[15], which has deep ties to many intelligence agencies and has a long history of links to many of those involved with organized child abuse, along with shadowy covert acts such as media propaganda, arms dealing and on the ground military action, generally funded by offshore shell companies.

Michael Howard is a long time friend of Jonathan Aitken, global arms dealer and one time head of Le Cercle.[15]

(for more on Aitken and his ties to the current speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, see here:

Another previous head of Le Cercle, and mentor of Jonathan Aitken, Julian Amery [16]was deeply involved in the ‘Bank of Credit and Commerce International’ an extremely shadowy bank which was set up with participation by George H. W. Bush and members of the Safari Club.

The BCCI was heavily involved with US and Saudi funds during Operation Cyclone and the early stages of Al-Qaeda… Osama Bin Laden had extensive investments in the BCCI.[17]

When the terms for the Al-Yamamah arms deal [18] were set up, Michael Howard was Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department of Trade and Industry with responsibility for regulating the financial dealings of the City of London. This junior post became very important, as he oversaw the BigBang introduction of new technology in 1986. [19]….

Ties Between the Bush Family and Osama bin Laden

06 April 2007

Questions Linger About Bushes and BCCI

The link between Hussein and Bin Laden was their banker, BCCI. But the link went beyond the dictator and the jihadist – it passed through Saudi Arabia and stretched all the way to George W. Bush and his father.

BCCI was the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, a dirty offshore bank that then-president Ronald Reagan’s Central Intelligence Agency used to run guns to Hussein, finance Osama bin Laden, move money in the illegal Iran-Contra operation and carry out other “agency” black ops. The Bushes also benefited privately; one of the bank’s largest Saudi investors helped bail out George W. Bush’s troubled oil investments.

BCCI was founded in 1972 by a Pakistani banker, Agha Hasan Abedi, with the support of Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan, ruler of Abu Dhabi and head of the United Arab Emirates. Its corporate strategy was money laundering. It became the banker for drug and arms traffickers, corrupt officials, financial fraudsters, dictators and terrorists.

The CIA used BCCI Islamabad and other branches in Pakistan to funnel some of the two billion dollars that Washington sent to Osama bin Laden’s Mujahadeen to help fight the Soviets in Afghanistan. It moved the cash the Pakistani military and government officials skimmed from U.S. aid to the Mujahadeen. It also moved money as required by the Saudi intelligence services.

Jonathan Aitken

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.


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.

Former Danish Prime Minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, has been announced as the new chief executive of Save the Children International

14 Jan 2016

She will replace Justin Forsyth, who announced his departure from Save the Children UK in October.

In Westminster, meanwhile, the couple’s enigmatic son and heir was threatening what sounded like a parliamentary coup in which MPs will effectively ignore a win for Brexit if the British public has the temerity to vote against the family’s wish.

All in all, the trio is expelling a lot of hot air for the cause. And the family in question? It could only, of course, be the Kinnocks.

Former Labour leader Lord Kinnock of Bedwellty, his wife Lady Kinnock of Holyhead and son Stephen Kinnock, Labour MP for Aberavon, have all been busy banging the drum for Remain.

For much of the time since 2005, the couple have not lived in the same country, let alone the same house. Stephen Kinnock had taken up British Council posts in West Africa and Russia, and in 2009 became a director of the World Economic Forum, an £110,000-per-annum job which necessitated him being based in Geneva, Switzerland.

...she had also, extraordinarily, felt the need to tell the world her husband was not gay.

She did this because she had heard that the explosive substance of an interview between her accountant, one Frode Holm, and a tax official was about to be leaked.

Jo Cox Charity work


Jo Cox worked for several charities before entering parliament at the general election last year, including Oxfam, which employed her for about eight years, Save the Children, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the NSPCC.

Immediately before she was elected to Parliament in May 2015, Jo Cox worked at the Freedom Fund, an anti-slavery organization, and at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, according to a biography on her website.

In 2001, she started working for Oxfam and quickly became head of the charity’s Brussels office, where Mr Cairns said she dealt with “one humanitarian crisis after another”.

Talking to the Huffington Post last year, Mrs Cox herself said: “I would jump on a plane and be in Kabul one week and then Darfur the next.”

She joined Oxfam GB as head of advocacy in 2005 and was a “passionate advocate on humanitarian issues, including the conflicts in Darfur and the Democratic Republic of Congo”, the charity said.

This led to her being appointed in 2007 as head of humanitarian campaigns for Oxfam International in New York, a position she held for two years.

Cox worked for Oxfam GB and Oxfam International between 2001 and 2009 in a variety of roles, including as head of its Brussels office, where she led the charity’s campaign for trade reform.

In 2007, she moved to Oxfam’s New York office and became head of humanitarian campaigning around the world until 2009.

(She campaigned for Obama’s 2008 presidential candidacy)

Mr Cairns said she was instrumental in the publication of a “landmark book” called For a Safer Tomorrow, which analysed how the world’s humanitarian policies were changing.

Mrs Cox left Oxfam in 2009 and became the director of ex-Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah’s Maternal Mortality Campaign, which campaigns for women’s right in the developing world.

And even when she moved into politics, she continued to work as a strategy consultant for Save the Children and then the NSPCC.

Peter Wanless, chief executive of the NSPCC, for which Cox worked as a consultant in 2012, said on Twitter: “Speaking on behalf of all at @NSPCC when I express my shock and sadness at the death of Jo Cox MP, a valued former work colleague.”

‘Child Rapist & Killer Sidney Cooke is not a threat to children’ – Paddy Ashdown

Greediest snouts in the EU trough: Not sure how to vote? Read about the stinking wealth and hypocrisy of those Brussels fat cats the Kinnocks and it may help you decide

  • This week Neil Kinnock told a rally that Brexit promises ‘didn’t add up’
  • His son Stephen and wife Glenys also campaigning for Remain
  • But 41 years ago Kinnock was leading figure in campaign for Britain to leave the European Economic Community
  • Family members have all benefited from the EU gravy train 

Kinnock’s second in a row — he and his family have existed in a lucrative public sector bubble, notably in relation to the European Union; highly paid, publicly funded jobs followed by mega-pensions for the parents, and what amounted to sinecures for their children (their daughter Rachel has also enjoyed the fruits of the public purse).

The figures are astonishing. Between them Lord and Lady Kinnock are entitled to draw six publicly funded pensions, with a total income estimated to be worth around £250,000 a year. Some of that comes directly from the British taxpayer. But the key to the riches was their Damascene conversion from Europhobes to Eurocrats. Former school teacher Glenys Kinnock — that original classroom profession provides one of her pensions — was the first to reach Brussels. In 1994 she was elected to the European Parliament as the MEP for South Wales East. It was the safest European seat in the country.

Rachel Kinnock, now 44, was taken on as a member of staff by her mother while she was an MEP in Brussels. The post was funded by Welsh taxpayers.


Rachel Kinnock became ‘events manager’ for Ed Miliband

When Lady Kinnock returned to London in 2009, a position was found for Rachel on Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s political staff. When he lost the 2010 election and stepped down from politics, Rachel Kinnock became ‘events manager’ for Ed Miliband.

We all know how his campaign to become PM ended, though Rachel is still being tipped to be yet another Kinnock Labour MP.

Stephen Kinnock: As a Cambridge modern languages graduate he attended the College of Europe in Bruges, described as atraining ground for the Eurocratic elite’. It was there that he met academic’s daughter Helle Thorning-Schmidt

As for Stephen Kinnock’s wife, she is now tipped to become an EU Commissioner. So whatever the result on June 23, another generation of Kinnocks could be sitting in the first-class compartment of the EU gravy train.

They may be aggressively campaigning for Remain, but given the extraordinary largesse they’ve received from taxpayers — especially via Brussels — could the Kinnocks be the family that persuades Britain to vote Leave?

Vile paedophile campaigner invited to plush champagne bash at the House of Lords

Twice jailed Tom O’Carroll, 73,fought for the legalisation of sex with kids in the 1970s and ’80s

BRITAIN’S most notorious paedophile campaigner was treated to a plush champagne bash at the House of Lords.

Twice-jailed Tom O’Carroll, 73, was among up to 60 guests who were thanked last December for donating money to a children’s book charity.

Twice jailed Tom O’Carroll was invited to a luxurious champagne bash at the House of Lords

He was chairman of the Paedophile Information Exchange, which fought in the 1970s and ’80s to legalise sex with kids.

Speaking at his one-bedroom flat in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, he bragged: “I was kind of a guest of honour. A few years ago I did give a pretty substantial amount. I was invited by one of the members of the Lords, who is patron or chairman.”

Book Aid International, which provides books for children in sub-Saharan Africa, said it was unaware of O’Carroll’s past and has launched an investigation.

The charity said he had given less than £500 in three instalments since 2015, which has been refunded.

A spokesman for the House of Lords said: “Parliament takes its safeguarding responsibilities towards children, young people and vulnerable adults very seriously.

Our safeguarding policy has been developed to ensure we provide a safe environment and fulfil our safeguarding responsibilities.

“The event sponsored by Lord Boateng, on behalf of Book Aid International, met the rules regarding the use of banqueting facilities in the House of Lords.

“Those who were invited to attend the event went through airport-style security on entry to the estate and were not left unsupervised.

“As Book Aid International has made clear, no children were present at the event.

Former Wirral children’s care home boss Michael John Carroll “cleared” of historic sex abuse charges

Jan 18 2018

A FORMER children’s home boss has been cleared of historic sex abuse on a young boy at a Wirral orphanage.

Paedophile Michael John Carroll – who has been jailed for similar offences at the same care home – had been due to stand trial in April in Liverpool.

But the prosecution has now decided not to pursue the allegations against him and a judge at the city’s crown court has formally entered not guilty verdicts on the three charges he faced.

69-year-old Carroll – known as John – had denied two offences of indecent assault and one of gross indecency involving the child between April 1975 and 1977 when the boy was aged between six and eight.

Lee Bonner, prosecuting, told the court that the Crown intended to offer no evidence explaining: “It is not deemed to pass the evidential test of providing a realistic prospect of conviction”.

Carroll, who lives in Weston Rhyn, Oswestry, Shropshire, was not present for the brief hearing as he is away on holiday.

It had been alleged that the offences occurred at St Edmund’s Orphanage in Bebington where he himself had been in care before taking up a job at the institution in the mid-1960s.

Twelve years later he took up a post as deputy officer in charge of a children’s home in Lambeth before taking overall charge in 1980. He was eventually dismissed following financial irregularities.

He was jailed for ten years at Liverpool Crown Court in 1999 after admitting 35 offences against 12 boys – nine of them at the Wirral home and the others in Lambeth between 1964 and 1982.

A further 41 charges, involving those 12 victims and two further complainants – a boy and a girl – were laid on the file. The charges resulted from a long-running investigation – Operation Care – by Merseyside Police into child abuse in residential homes in the North West.

Abuse probe into former Lambeth children’s home manager

20 September 2017

A former children’s home manager has been arrested on allegations of child sex abuse.

Michael John Carroll managed the Angell Road children’s home in Lambeth, south London, between 1981 and 1990.

The 69-year-old is accused of sexually assaulting two children in the early 1980s.

Mr Carroll, who is originally from Liverpool but was arrested in Shropshire, has been released on bail until October.

Michael John Carroll. He was one of the paedophile “fall guys” from the Lambeth Care Home Scandal – this is a quaint British tradition where small time paedophiles get convicted of minor sex offences and all enquiries are then closed in to the bigger picture.

The Labour politician is expected to be asked about retired Det Insp Clive Driscoll’s claims he wanted to speak to him in 1998 about alleged links with paedophile ­children’s home boss John Carroll.

Mr Driscoll said he was taken off the case before he could approach Mr Boateng.

justme ‏@zante03

so I take it the cops have been investigating this for at LEAST 2 years, so why no movement?

 Yes, the Mirror article sounded as if it had just occurred to Driscoll but he has been on about it for years.

One man – Michael John Carroll – will be central to the investigation.

Goddard says she will examine “the involvement of Michael Carroll in the sexual abuse of children in the care of the council; his recruitment and continued employment by the council; and the circumstances surrounding his application to foster a child and the council’s subsequent account to the Clough Inquiry”.


Former Angell Road care home

The former Angell Road care home where Carroll was manager

A former social services manager told Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll in 1998 that she saw the future Blair minister making evening visits to the Angell Road children’s home in Brixton in the early 80s.

One witness told him she saw Mr Boateng at Carroll’s Angell Road home in Lambeth, South London, during the 1980s.

Another claimed Mr Boateng visited a camp for children in care, run by Carroll.

A third person, who worked in social services, claimed Mr Boateng contacted him after Carroll’s bid to foster two boys was turned down.

Carroll was jailed for 10 years in 1999 for abusing children during the 80s and 90s.

Mr Boateng has insisted he did not recall meeting him or visiting Angell Road.

Inquiry chief Justice Lowell Goddard has said she would look at the Carroll fostering case along with allegations of “inappropriate interference in law enforcement” in Lambeth.


Blair government was briefed about police paedophile probe

The papers have been handed to anti-corruption detectives investigating the alleged cover up which is believed to be among 17 cases that were referred to the police watchdog in April.

The 111 pages of documents makes no mention of the minister being under suspicion while former members of the Blair government and the inspector who helped write some of the documents deny ever being told.

Nigel Goldie, a former council boss involved in the 1998 children’s home probe in Lambeth, south London, said after we handed him the papers: “I had a discussion with the government inspector about how we were going to handle this because of the huge political implications of a serving minister being investigated on suspicion of child sex offences.

“Understandably they said they would pass it up the management line.

“But the documents make no mention of this.

Tony Blair government briefed about peado claims
This document shows ministers were briefed about the probe. SoS was the Secretary of State Frank Dobson while the Ps (c) was the Private secretary (communities) who was Paul Boateng

“Anything that was said would appear to have been ‘off record’. The people involved have to come out and be open and answer questions about what occurred.”

Mr Driscoll was removed from the Lambeth investigation, codenamed Operation Trawler, in November 1998.

Mr Driscoll said after we handed him the documents: “I was surprised to see no mention of the briefing I gave at the request of the SSI to Mr Nigel Goldie and the SSI inspector.

“I outlined the allegations and concerns made by witnesses about the suspects.”

The inspector who helped write some of the reports, their former bosses at the watchdog the Social Services Inspectorate (SSI) and former health ministers Paul Boateng John Hutton and Frank Dobson have either denied being told or said they have no recollection of a minister being a suspect.

The papers were released by the Department of Health and Care Quality Commission following Freedom of Information requests by the Mirror.

The anti-corruption investigation is focusing on a crucial meeting that occurred in the offices of Lambeth social services on the sixth floor of Mary Seacole House in Clapham on August 28, 1998.

Mr Driscoll and Mr Goldie say it was the first time the SSI inspector was told about the Labour star being in the frame.

A memo written later that day based on information provided by the inspector is marked with a handwritten note stating Mr Boateng and their then boss, the Secretary of State for Health, Frank Dobson, had been briefed.

Mr Driscoll began investigating when Lambeth children’s home boss Michael John Carroll, now aged 66, was arrested in June 1998 over child sex offences.

The detective soon traced two people who said the Blair minister and Carroll, known as John, had been friends.

Paul Boateng says he was not aware that any minister was under suspicion at the time

Mr Boateng was moved in late October 1998 to the Home Office

A six page memo dated September 7, 1998, for Mr Boateng entitled “PAEDOPHILE INVESTIGATION – LAMBETH” stated that government inspectors would maintain “close contact” with detectives.

The document shows how closely the Blair administration was monitoring the police investigation, raising questions about what exactly was known.

The papers, released following Freedom of Information requests by the Mirror, also show that information was being passed to ministers verbally.

…Six months later the SSI informed Mr Dobson that Mr Boateng had been told before he left the department that he would be excluded from updates about the Lambeth investigation.

Paul Boateng’s wife – nee Janet Alleyn, a social worker by training who became a social-services administrator, in 1980.

A confidential memo, written by SSI Chief Inspector Denise Platt, stated Mr Boateng was at the centre of a “perceived conflict of interest” because his wife Janet had been the chair of Lambeth social services during a period in the 1980s.

Mr Boateng said: “I was not aware that any serving Minister had at anytime come under suspicion in relation to child sex abuse at children’s homes in Lambeth.”

He added: “I had no knowledge of allegations relating to child sexual abuse in children’s homes in Lambeth other than in media reports of the period.

“The issue was raised with me at some time during our respective periods of office in the Department of Health by the then head of the SSI Denise Platt.

“This was in the context of the investigation into the activities of Mr Carroll and the circumstances of his employment by Lambeth Social Services.

Ms Platt, who was made a Dame in 2004 and is currently a trustee of the NSPCC,has denied being told a minister was being investigated or being “involved in providing any briefings” to ministers about the Lambeth investigations in 1998.

from 2014

The police team was set up following a series of articles in the Daily Mirror revealing how retired detective Clive Driscoll was removed from investigating a paedophile ring in November 1998 in Lambeth, south London, after naming politicians among the suspects.

The inquiry has been operating in secret at the headquarters of Scotland Yard’s child abuse command at Empress State Building in Earl’s Court, London.

The team have been told by the former youth worker that he took photographs of holidays between 1986 and 1994 after starting his first job as a youth worker with the Association of Combined Youth Clubs, partly run by convicted paedophile Michael John Carroll.

The former youth worker said two senior detectives spent a day quizzing him at Walworth Road police station in south east London after Carroll was arrested in June 1998.

Carroll was said to be on a committee that hand picked around 60 deprived boys and girls, aged five to 14, to go to the Havens caravan park in Christchurch, near Bournemouth, for two weeks every summer.

Many came from Catholic children’s homes and had already suffered sexual abuse.

A group of men, including the rising Labour star, would allegedly travel down on the Friday evening and sleep in the caravans with the children over the weekends.

The new witness said he cut his ties with the ACYC in the mid 1990s when he learned some colleagues were convicted paedophiles. It changed it’s name shortly afterwards before shutting down.

He claimed: “It became quite clear that the organisation had been infiltrated by a group of paedophiles.

Five Lambeth-run children's homes where sex abuse took place

Goddard recently said her inquiry would examine events at five children’s homes in Lambeth – Angell Road, Monkton Street, Ivy House, South Vale, and Shirley Oaks.

These five care homes were places where children were exposed to sexual abuse and cruelty – Monkton Street and Ivy House were homes for children with special needs.

This was a paedophile ring protected by the police and people connected to Lambeth council who were taking away very vulnerable children every year for a decade. It was like a conveyor belt feeding children to abusers.

All of Lambeth’s homes had been closed by the mid-1990s but by then, they had been infiltrated by paedophiles for at least 30 years – and survivors are still coming forward.

Documents obtained by Newsnight show investigators believed there were at least seven men who were abusing children at Angell Road alone. This was regarded as an “inner circle”. The suspicion was that many more were involved.

Hundreds of sensitive council documents found in London estate

Hundreds of sensitive documents have been found in an unlocked London estate storage unit, the BBC has learned.

Child protection and rent arrears documents – showing names, addresses, and confidential information – were found on the Gauden Estate, Clapham.

Campaigners say the find could include files missing from a historical sexual abuse investigation, which they believe was “covered up”.

Lambeth Council has moved the files to a “secure location” for review.

The Shirley Oaks Survivors Association say the discovery could include 140 boxes of council documents that have gone missing, related to abuse suffered at the Shirley Oaks Childrens’ Home.

“It’s imperative that the history of these documents is actually found out,” said former Metropolitan Police officer Clive Driscoll.

Three people were convicted of child abuse which took place at Shirley Oaks’ in the 1970s and 80s.

Ex-residents claim Lambeth Council has “covered up” the “industrial scale” abuse which took place at the children’s home.

Lambeth Council is set to pay tens of millions of pounds to former Shirley Oaks residents.

Correctly identifying the documents could be “could be the difference between a successful and failed prosecution”, Mr Driscoll added.

A spokesperson for Lambeth Council said the store room had been “re-secured, and the documents it contained removed”.

The documents will now be reviewed to determine whether a data breach has taken place.

“From an initial assessment no identifiable personal data relating to any Lambeth children’s homes, prior to their closure in the 80s and 90s, have been found,” the spokesman added.

Shirley Oaks Survivors Association: Michael Mansfield QC will represent them in negotiations with Lambeth Council for abuse compensation





It is clear the Shirley Oaks Interim report has ruffled feathers as it was intended to do. In our efforts to be open, on request we have made the report available to; the press, the Police, Home Office and IICSA. There are no children’s names in the report apart from those who wanted their deceased siblings mentioned. There are many people who have a lot to lose from our exposure and it would seem that they are now making a concerted effort to undermine us.

 In the past the methods used have been to under investigate the allegations, to deny there was a paedophile ring operating in Shirley Oaks and other Lambeth Homes, to pervert the course of justice protecting their own and negating their duty to the public. Lastly, they have relied on the fact that documents and evidence has gone missing as a hindrance to their investigations.

 Central to the failings in Lambeth was Operation Middleton which the Met Police announced at the time was a gold standard investigation. Our interim report contradicts this and therefore we would not be surprised if this became the subject of the attempts to discredit us. 

We ask the question: Is this to protect the paedophiles or is it to protect the integrity of the agencies that failed in the past? Dismissing our claims of a cover up by insisting it was just a few individuals who didn’t follow the obvious leads didn’t wash then and is not going to wash now. 

To date we have over 1000 members and we will not be intimidated because Shirley Oaks and Lambeth former care children have suffered enough bullshit in their lives to allow the same types of like-minded conspirers to derail our efforts. 

 What they never realised when they defrauded us of our childhood was the encaged environment which we were forced to live created a unity and bond that has come back to haunt them. Now we wont be silenced.

Shirley Oaks children’s home scandal South London press 21/07/17: Abuse victims slam council payout scheme


Former Shirley Oaks site


Peter Davis, 15, was found hanged at Lambeth Council‘s Shirley Oaks children’s home in Croydon in South London.
Peter was probably murdered.
A coroner ruled it was “death by misadventure”.
The police say that the case is closed.

Why were the files from Shirley Oaks Home sealed for ONE HUNDRED YEARS REGARDING 15 yr old lad PETER DAVIS found hanged?

“Right now, having looked through the history of Shirley Oaks and how many paedophiles were operating there, it’s quite clear that something untoward took place which has been covered up for years.”

When the BBC looked for court documents from the time, we found that in 2003 they had been made secret for 100 years.

Former senior detective Clive Driscoll said reopening the case would be a “great opportunity for detective work”.

Carroll would always say he was untouchable. He was a kingpin in Lambeth.”

Lambeth Borough Council

Allegedly, a ‘Godfather’ controlled Lambeth council, child abuse victims had petrol poured over them, and the Lambeth Police HQ had a basement where children may have been abused.In the case of Lambeth, a large number of people died in mysterious circumstances before any perpetrators could be brought to justice.

Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll was removed from the original police investigation after superiors learned that politicians, including an MP, were among the suspects.

One female staff member was subject to a rape on council premises “of horrendous proportions”, such that she was still suffering from serious injuries one month on.

She described being raped alongside children and animals by senior figures in the council.

Although the report, which was prompted by alleged breaches of the council’s equal opportunities policy, recommends a criminal investigation, its findings were never formally investigated by the police at the time.

Instead, the perpetrators within the council were dismissed from their positions. The report has never before been made public.

Bulic Forsythe who worked at Lambeth Council and was murdered allegedly before blowing the whistle on abuse there

The Daily Mirror asks:was Bulic Forsythe, who vowed to expose a paedophile ring allegedly linked to a future minister in Tony Blair’s government killed to protect a paedophile ring?’

That abuse involved senior figures in Lambeth who were using council premises for the rape of women and children, according to the report’s remarkable findings.

They used the basement of Lambeth’s housing headquarters, the report says, because “sexual assault could be performed without fear of interruption by other staff”.

The Metropolitan Police, which has been investigating events in Lambeth at the time under Operation Trinity, said it was considering the report as part of its investigation.

Lambeth – home to the MI6 HEADQUARTERS




Janet Boateng’s name never comes up in articles about the paedophile ring that operated in Lambeth Council-run children’s homes between 1974 and 1994.

But maybe it should, because she was chair of Lambeth Council’s social services committee, who had overall responsibility for the running of children’s homes, and she personally unveiled the ‘new child care strategy’ at a time when Lambeth children’s homes were infested with paedophiles.

Wife of Paul Boateng investigated for allegedly bullying black staff

The wife of Paul Boateng, Britain’s first black High Commissioner, is under investigation for allegedly bullying domestic staff at the official residence in South Africa.

The complaints against Janet Boateng by black members of staff are deemed so sensitive that Foreign Office ministers have been alerted.

More on their time in South Africa

When Paul Boateng was given the prized diplomatic posting of South Africa in 2003, a country whose blacks had suffered for decades, being the new High Commissioner’s wife seemed to be a heaven-sent role for his wife Janet.

This is a post of high significance, that comes close to the top echelons of Washington, Paris and Beijing. The significance test is in the quality of the china. Only top missions are issued with a Royal Doulton black-and-gold Minton dinner service, and that’s precisely what Janet Boateng has for her formal dinner parties.

Stern and his school became famous across southern Africa. Nelson Mandela, still in prison, sent his daughters there. Desmond Tutu sent his children.

The appointment of Mr Boateng, who had been chief secretary to the Treasury under Chancellor Gordon Brown, caused outrage in diplomatic circles, and still does.

A controversial choice

Critics feel that such an important posting to an area of geopolitical significance should have gone to a career diplomat, not to a lawyer-turned Labour politician as a lucrative and dignified exit from Parliament by friend and crony Tony Blair.

His officials hate him because he’s so rude,” says a government insider. “He’s very clever, but he’s very arrogant and he has a very short fuse. He’s horrible to work for. Nobody loves Paul.”

Paul Boateng writing about Ben Birnberg:

my legal hero…  He struck a blow for artistic freedom, defending David Hockney’s right to bring back magazines deemed obscene by customs and excise.

This didn’t inhibit a lifelong friendship with Lord Longford. …Ben Birnberg went on to help form the Butler Trust.”

Lord Longford – uncle of NCCL’s Harriet Harman

In the 1970s, Lord Longford, friend of child killer Myra Hindley, compiled a self-funded report into pornography.

Lord Longford invited Sir Jimmy Savile, the Bishop of Leicester and Cliff Richard to join him on a wide-ranging tour of sex industry establishments, including strip clubs in Copenhagen.

Ben Birnberg was the lawyer who acted for Ian Brady on being introduced by Harriet Harman’s uncle Lord Longford

Using an internal Home Office psychiatrist’s report, which recommended that Brady be moved to a mental hospital, Mr Birnberg started an action against the Home Office in the early 1980s and succeeded in having Brady moved to Park Lane (now Ashworth), where he has been since 1985.”

In 1977, Righton also participated in the London Medical Group’s annual conference, on this occasion the subject being ‘Human Sexuality’, speaking alongside agony aunt Claire Rayner amongst others (M. Papouchado, ‘Annual Conference of the LMG: Human Sexuality’, Journal of Medical Ethics, Vol. 3 (1977), pp. 153-154).

Righton knew Claire Raynor from her participation in his new psychosexual counselling venture with Doreen Cordell (formerly counsellor with Albany Trust) during 1971 although she resigned after a few meetings:

“Claire Rayner was just about the most adorable person I ever knew,” said Fry. “She was my matron-sister-aunt-mummy-nurse-gossip and sergeant-major all wrapped in one.”

Paul Boateng – Holloway Prison appointment

Europe’s largest women’s prison has recruited agony aunt Claire Rayner to help improve healthcare on site, the Prison Service has confirmed.

Claire Rayner appointed to Holloway prison

In 1999 Rayner was appointed to a committee responsible for reviewing the medical conditions at Holloway Prison, London, at the direction of Paul Boateng who was then the Minister for Prisons. The recommendations of this committee led to far reaching changes in the provision of medical care within Holloway.

Her advice in the teenaged girls’ magazine Petticoat caused controversy.

In 1972 she was accused of “encouraging masturbation and promiscuity in prepubescent girls”

5 August, 2000

After the murder of eight-year-old Sarah Payne, the paper had argued that every parent should have the right to know if a paedophile was living nearby.

The Paynes said the proposed ‘Sarah’s Law’ would “give back power to parents to enable them to protect their children”.

They added: “This debate was long overdue and we look forward to hearing the home secretary’s response to this decision.”

CRIME: Paedophiles: Government rejects public register

06 August 2000
So the News of the World and the parents of Sarah Payne say they’re confident that their campaign for a change in the law on paedophiles will be successful, especially since the police and probation service now appear to have signed up to a form of Sarah’s law

What about Sarah’s law? What about the suggestion of access, that the public should have access and be told if paedophiles are in the vicinity or are likely to be working with children. We just want the whole thing set out

how are you listening if you are saying that you are actually not going to give the kind of access that people have signed up for this

Well what the NSPCC and the police and the probation service have asked us to do, when they sat alongside the News of the World on Friday, is to review how we can better control access to information

300,000 people who signed up for this, and Sarah’s parents, want something different, would you say you’re going to deliver it?


Boateng’s Business

Aegis Defence Services

The chairman of the Aegis board of directors is former Defence minister, Nicholas Soames MP. The Board of Directors include: General Sir Roger Wheeler, Chief of the General Staff; Paul Boateng, former Labour Minister and ex-High Commissioner to South Africa[ and Sir John Birch, former British deputy ambassador to the United Nations.

In October 2004, Aegis won a $293 million three-year contract in Iraq outsourcing, among other things, intelligence for the U.S. Army.

Spicer is effectively in charge of the second largest military force in Iraq – some 20,000 private soldiers. Just don’t call him a mercenary.


Soames is demanding Tom Watson apologise over Leon Brittan

Dame Alun Roberts ‏@ciabaudo

Am I in the least surprised that Boateng has close business ties to Nicholas Soames, Proctor’s friend and protector? 

Boateng’s directorship at AEGIS makes him an associate of right-wing yob Nicholas Soames, friend of Harvey Proctor.

A former Cabinet minister (Paul Boateng) has become a director of a private military company after lobbying South Africa to water down anti-mercenary laws.

Paul Boateng joined the board of Aegis Defence Services – completing his transformation from ‘Loony left’ councillor to a member of the Establishment.

But his new role has sparked a fresh row about the so-called ‘revolving door’ of former ministers who take up lucrative private-sector posts after leaving office.

Aegis, which has lucrative contracts in Iraq, is run by Tim Spicer, the former Guards officer at the centre of the arms-to-Sierra Leone scandal in 1998.

As high commissioner, Mr Boateng lobbied the South African government on behalf of the Foreign Office over armed forces legislation.

Britain was concerned about laws which would prevent South Africans from joining foreign military forces.

Mr Boateng called for an amendment to ensure that South Africans who joined the British army were not forced to renounce their citizenship.

But the ANC-led government claiming it would have created loopholes allowing South Africans to join foreign armies as well as become mercenaries with companies such as Aegis.

The anti-‘fighters-for-hire’ legislation was drawn up in a bid to end the country’s reputation as a recruiting ground for ‘dogs of war’ fighting in dirty conflicts.

It is not known how much Boateng is being paid by Aegis.

Has Virginia Bottomley commented on the conviction of Righton’s mate Napier? No, thought not!

Charles Napier, the half-brother of a John Whittingdale, sentenced to 13 years over ‘prolific’ child sex abuse,  has been urged to come clean about his links to a network of high-profile paedophiles after he was jailed for hundreds of sexual assaults on young boys dating back more than 40 years.

Charles Napier, 67, was a former treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) which campaigned to lower the age of consent and linked like-minded abusers in the 1970s and 80s before it was disbanded. It was reputed to have high-ranking supporters within politics, police and the Church.

Napier was arrested last year following a police investigation sparked by claims by MP Tom Watson about an Establishment ring of child abusers that had links to Downing Street.


Kids Company

The leaked email shows how Yentob, currently the BBC’s £330,000-a-year creative director, mounted a concerted operation to lobby the Labour Government to cancel the bill. The bill was waived the following year. The message, sent using a BBC email address to nine Kids Company colleagues – including Ms Batmanghelidjh – revealed he had contacted Dawn Primarolo, then the Paymaster General in the Treasury, and Paul Boateng, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, about the tax bill.
 photo boat and kid co_zpsvkjejth8.jpg
Mr Yentob said he had been advised by Ms Primarolo’s aides to put the charity’s case to her in a letter, so she could refer the matter to the Inland Revenue – which Mr Yentob said he would be doing ‘with a little bit of help from my friends’.
Both Ms Primarolo and Mr Boateng worked at the time for the then-Chancellor Gordon Brown.
 Mr Yentob also says in the message: ‘Paul Boateng and I have managed to miss each other on the telephone but his office has been extremely co-operative and concerned and a phone call is being set up for tomorrow morning.’

A few months later, £589,957 was written off using taxpayers’ money, with an additional £100,000 debt met by an unidentified donor.

The charity’s unpaid bill was first revealed by The Mail on Sunday last week, which led to this newspaper obtaining the Yentob email.

The charity has received about £4 million from the Government every year for the last decade.

Ms Batmanghelidjh claims the Government has targeted her because she has a list of Establishment figures allegedly involved in historical child sex abuse.

Mr Boateng said last night: ‘I do not recall the details. I would not be prepared to comment without consulting Treasury papers. I was responsible for spending, not tax.’

Kids Company founder and trustees may face action amid Insolvency Service probe

April 24 2017

Kids Company was founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh
Kids Company was founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh

The founder and former trustees of the collapsed charity Kids Company could be banned from holding company directorships.


The youth organisation folded amid a storm of controversy in August 2015 – just days after receiving a £3 million Government grant in a final bid to keep it afloat.

Kids Company received more than £42 million of Whitehall funding between 1996 and 2015, thanks in part to founder Camila Batmanghelidjh winning favour with former prime minister David Cameron.

The Insolvency Service is investigating the financial circumstances of the charity and is allegedly bringing disqualification proceedings against Ms Batmanghelidjh.

Former trustees of the collapsed charity, including ex-BBC creative director Alan Yentob and Richard Handover, previously a boss of WH Smith, may also face sanctions.

The trustees, who also include Sunetra Atkinson, Erica Bolton, Francesca Robinson, Jane Tyler and Andrew Webster, responded to the “unconfirmed reports” in a joint statement.

Mr Colman was an Eton contemporary of the Most Rev Justin Welby, while his father, Sir Michael, oversaw the Church’s investment portfolio between 1993 and 1999, holding the post of First Church Estates Commissioner. He was subsequently awarded the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Cross of St Augustine.

A catastrophic charity collapse. Two inquires that hit the buffers. As a musical lampoons the fiasco… Will Kids Company Camila and her BBC stooge EVER face the music?

  • Stage production depicts the hugely publisised fall of Kids Company charity
  • Comes two years after the controversial charity met its demise amid allegations
  • Inquiries are ongoing but there is not indication of when they might conclude
  • Camila Batmanghelidjh’s autobiography, due out this year, is similarly delayed

Alan Yentob, BBC creative director, throws up his arms in despair. His rich baritone trembles with bathos as he sings: ‘Michael Gove even said it was an inspirational charity!’

The audience titters. The line does not have the lyricism of a Rodgers and Hammerstein, but it is genuinely funny.

And true. The real Mr Yentob — rather than the actor playing him in this stage production — really did say, rather than sing, it.

Just like the BBC bigwig himself, who became embroiled in the scandal surrounding the collapse of the Kids Company charity of which he was chairman, there is something more than a little unconventional about this new musical being previewed in London last week.

First, there is the title: ‘The Public Administration And Constitutional Affairs Select Committee Takes Oral Evidence On Whitehall’s Relationship With Kids Company.’

Then there are the lyrics, taken verbatim from the Hansard transcript of the testimony given by two witnesses who appeared before that committee of MPs on October 15, 2015.

One was Mr Yentob. The other was enigmatic charity supremo Camila Batmanghelidjh, once known as ‘the angel of Camberwell’.

The pair had been summoned to the Commons to explain how Kids Company, the charity of which Ms Batmanghelidjh was founder and CEO, had gone bust amid allegations of financial irregularity and sexual abuse, having received almost £50 million of public money.

That was almost two years ago. And while the musical is opening this week, the public still awaits a definitive official explanation of the charity’s controversial modus operandi and dramatic demise.

The select committee had no powers to act on its own damning findings of an ‘extraordinary catalogue of failures’. Two statutory bodies that do have such powers — the Charity Commission and the Insolvency Service — were supposed to deliver their own reports on Kids Company last autumn. They did not.

Both bodies say inquiries are ‘ongoing’ but there is no indication as to when they might end. Ms Batmanghelidjh’s autobiography, due out late last year, is similarly delayed.

And so the extraordinary saga rumbles on.

The woman at the centre of it all, 54-year-old Camila, keeps, in contrast to her life before the scandal, a low profile these days.

On a rare outing last summer, she was photographed as she went to lunch with representatives of a foreign government ‘which is having to deal with a lot of young refugees’ at the Michelin-starred Pied a Terre restaurant.

Ms Batmanghelidjh says she is continuing to help many Kids Company children, with the financial backing of donors who stayed loyal.

Kids Company rented a £4,000-a-month Grade II-listed art-deco mansion in North London, in which a member of the finance department and one of Ms Batmanghelidjh’s PAs lived

While the Metropolitan Police found insufficient evidence to press any criminal charge, anecdotal evidence of institutional anarchy and excesses at Kids Company still has the power to shock.

Brown envelopes stuffed with cash were handed to troubled children as a matter of course. Twelve-year-old clients were given £150 trainers; others were flown first class to America. Some £50,000 alone was allegedly spent on taxis at the charity’s Christmas party.

Kids Company received £46 million from the UK taxpayer over 13 years, including £3 million days before it shut. Former Mayor of London Boris Johnson is pictured with Camila Batmanghelidjh London Evening Standard's '1000: London's Most Influential People' in 2014

Flamboyant, Iranian-born Camila could charm the birds from the trees. Then prime minister David Cameron was said to be ‘mesmerised’ by her, while his wife Samantha was a backer, along with Prince Charles and a host of other A-list celebrities and City financiers.

Kids Company received £46 million from the UK taxpayer over 13 years, including £3 million days before it shut. Rock band Coldplay ploughed in a further £8 million from royalties.

Ms Batmanghelidjh claimed her charity had 36,000 young ‘clients’.

No doubt there was and remains a very real need for children from splintered families to be supported in Britain’s troubled inner cities.

But something within the organisation was not right. It needed only a small push for the already teetering edifice to collapse. That pressure came from an unlikely quarter.

Pensioner Joan Woolard was the catalyst to Kids Company’s spectacular downfall and remains one of Ms Batmanghelidjh’s fiercest critics.

Having heard the charity boss speak on Radio 4, Mrs Woolard was inspired to sell her home and donate the proceeds — more than £200,000 — to the Kids Company.

Doubts began when she asked how the money had been spent.

The answers were unsatisfactory. Her experience of spending some time at Kids Company offices alarmed her further — and she asked for her money back.

Hers was the first public voice of dissent against this fashionable and feted good cause. Ms Batmanghelidjh denied any wrongdoing.

But the money remained in Ms Batmanghelidjh’s hands. Kids Company needed it desperately.

Encouraged by Mrs Woolard’s public stand, whistle-blowers from inside the organisation began to come forward.

The unsubstantiated allegations of sexual abuse were the final straw.

In August 2015, the charity shut down, laying off scores of staff and abandoning thousands of children.

Some of the evidence subsequently given to the Commons select committee presented a shocking litany of financial chaos, rampant nepotism and very dubious methodology.

The committee concluded: ‘There appears to have been a catastrophic confluence of factors that have conspired to allow this charity to operate as it did, for as long as it did.’

Their report said the ‘approach of successive governments and ministers towards Kids Company has proved to be an improper way to conduct government business or handle public money’.

Alan Yentob had failed to restrain his ‘unaccountable and dominant’ CEO. His employer, the BBC, was also ‘accused of poor leadership for failing to take action against him when he tried to make suggestions about the BBC’s reporting of Kids Company’.

One of the committee’s witnesses, a high-ranking worker who was granted anonymity, gave a particularly damning insight into what Kids Company had become.

She said: ‘The charity was run by the CEO as her personal fiefdom, with no regard whatsoever for the financial implications. It was simply unsustainable to continue to take in anyone who asked for assistance and, in certain specific areas, ridiculous amounts of money were spent wantonly and inappropriately.’

Ms Batmanghelidjh had favourites among the youngsters she helped. ‘One group of young adults — many of them in their late 20s — were known throughout the organisation as “Camila’s kids” and inordinate amounts of money and resources were lavished on them; creating envy and resentment among others.’

But staff were also treated lavishly, the witness stated, and nepotism was rife. ‘Sasha and Jamie Handover (the children of former WH Smith boss Richard Handover, a trustee) were both employed at KC,’ the witness said.

‘The so-called “Operations Manager” — a sweet but totally inefficient woman who kept odd hours — turned out to be the mother of one of the IT chaps.

‘Magbule Mulla — who worked in the finance department — is the sister-in-law of Jeton (Tony) Cavolli, who was Camila’s driver.’

(While her Linked In page still describes her as ‘Assistant Accountant Kids Company’, Mrs Mulla was described by Ms Batmanghelidjh in one interview as ‘the woman who sews for me’.)

Ms Batmanghelidjh would eventually admit that her charity had paid for both of Mr Cavolli’s children to be put through private schools; one of them a boarding establishment where the chairman of governors was one Richard Handover (a trustee).

Mr Cavolli had been described by Ms Batmanghelidjh as a ‘therapist tasked with dealing with difficult young men and only had a car in order to go to their aid late at night’. But in the time she worked there, the witness only ‘heard him referred to as “Tony the Driver”.’

Some of the evidence subsequently given to the Commons select committee presented a shocking litany of financial chaos. Squatters are pictured at the former offices of Kids Company in Kenbury Street, Camberwell

It was ‘Tony the Driver’ who was pictured holding the car door open for Ms Batmanghelidjh prior to that lunch at Pied a Terre restaurant last summer.

He was not her chauffeur, she later explained. He was working as an Uber driver and had given her a lift as a ‘favour’.

A university academic whose role as an Ofsted inspector in South London alerted her to Kids Company more than 15 years ago had watched its progress with alarm.

‘The whole history of Kids Company is one of a failure of due diligence by local government, donor charities, the Tory Party, Prince Charles. They all failed. It is astounding,’ she told me.

Hers is only one of many critical voices. But there is an approaching counterblast. Approaching, but repeatedly delayed. Ms Batmanghelidjh’s autobiography was due to be published last autumn. Her ghost-writer is Tim Rayment.

In early 2015 he was sent by his newspaper to investigate Ms Batmanghelidjh. Now he is firmly in her camp.

One view is that Rayment fell under her spell; like so many financiers, pop stars, politicians and royals before him, he was ‘hypnotised’, one colleague said.

‘I want to give voice to someone who has been silenced,’ Mr Rayment told me last year, rather generously of someone who had the ear of royalty and prime ministers.

‘Have I been naïve? Have I been mesmerised?’ he asks. ‘The time to make that judgment is on publication.’

The fall-out has indeed been complex and messy for those involved. Last December, Mr Yentob stepped down as Creative Director of the BBC as a direct result of his involvement in the Kids Company collapse

Last night, a spokesman for Ms Batmanghelidjh’s publisher, Biteback, said she expected the book to appear in August. She explained: ‘We had initially hoped to do a very fast turnaround on this title, and therefore gave it a very ambitious publication date.

‘But it has turned out to be far more complex, both legally and in terms of the science involved, than we had first anticipated.’

The fall-out has indeed been complex and messy for those involved. Last December, Mr Yentob stepped down as Creative Director of the BBC as a direct result of his involvement in the Kids Company collapse.

Earlier this year, it was reported that the Insolvency Service had written to lawyers acting for Kids Company’s former board members to warn them it was minded to ban them from holding directorships.They included Ms Batmanghelidjh, Mr Yentob and Mr Handover. Which brings us back to the musical.

Flamboyant, Iranian-born Camila could charm the birds from the trees. Then prime minister David Cameron was said to be ‘mesmerised’ by her

‘Mr Yentob’ bewails the sudden denial of the public purse gold seam. He had mined it for years thanks to his contacts with David Cameron and the latter’s desire to give his Big Society slogan some substance and street cred.

Last night, a Charities Commission spokeswoman said: ‘When an inquiry is under way, we do not provide updates on when it is likely to conclude.

‘This is a high-profile case and when a report is available it will be posted online with full findings.’

An Insolvency Service spokesman said: ‘Our investigation into Kids Company remains ongoing. Each case has its own complexities and differences depending on the number of directors involved. There is no timescale for us to reach any conclusions. As such, it would not be appropriate for us to comment further at present.’

Miles Goslett, the journalist who first raised questions about Kids Company, in February 2015, is sceptical about the delay.

‘Both inquiries were set up the best part of two years ago and I was told privately last year they’d be published by Christmas 2016 at the latest,’ he said this week.

‘Even if these bodies are short on manpower, I’d have no difficulty believing that someone in Whitehall has taken the decision it would be politically sensible to keep them from public view for a while yet.’

Joanna Lumley and Helena Kennedy are both patrons of the Peter Tatchell Foundation (PTF)

16th January 2015,

Actress and campaigner Joanna Lumley has been announced as a new patron of the Peter Tatchell Foundation.

A number of peers have also become patrons – Labour peers Lord Waheed Alli, Lord Michael Cashman, Baroness Joan Bakewell and Baroness Helena Kennedy, and Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Liz Barker.

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.


 nettie-pollard tatchell-and-nettie-pollard

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.





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.

Tatchell repeats call for lower age of consent

2 Sep 2010

Mr Tatchell’s latest comments echo those made by him last year as well as in a controversial letter he sent to The Guardian in 1997, in which he talked about the “positive nature of some child-adult sexual relationships” and even said he knew cases of nine-year-olds for whom sex with adults “gave them great joy”.

Warren Middleton, also known as John Parratt, was given a 12 month sentence in July 2011 after being convicted of having indecent images of children.

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’.  Middleton was also vice-chairman of the Paedophile Information Exchange, known as PIE.

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

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




Peter Tatchell was a leading member of the Gay Liberation Front (GLF) but never knew or met any GLF members that where paedophiles like John David Stamford ?

The author of the letter, Dudley Cave, was a well known ‘gay rights activist’,

Gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell has claimed he was sounded out about a knighthood

In a column for the Guardian, he revealed: “Over the last decade, I’ve had three separate phone calls asking if I would be “minded” to accept an OBE, knighthood or a peerage.

“The caller had a cut-glass accent. He declined to identify himself, saying it was just a “preliminary” inquiry

“I have no idea who the man was or in what capacity he phoned me. In all three cases, I said no.”

Peter Tatchell, has claimed that he inspired one of David Cameron’s best known lines on same-sex ‘marriage’ proposals.Mr Tatchell made the comments in a conversation with Dr Trevor Stammers (past Chairman of the Christian Medical Fellowship) outside Downing Street on Sunday (03 FEB) as a group of senior local Conservatives delivered a letter to the Prime Minister expressing deep concern about the way that same-sex ‘marriage’ plans had been pursued and the damage that is being done to the Conservative Party.

He is reported to have said:

“I wrote David Cameron’s speech for him. That line about ‘I believe in gay marriage because I am a Conservative’ came directly from what I wrote.”

Strange how so many of the news stories relating to this case (whether referring to the man as Andrew Picard or Andrew Boeckman) have disappeared from search results (as Google says, because of European Data Protection ‘right to be forgotten’ laws) within a few weeks of the trial ending.

One also has to question whether the police or child protection agencies have advised the Chelsea and Westminster Swimming Club, where Andrew Boeckman helped organise events with young swimmers, of this man’s criminal activity?This is nothing to do with ‘mob rule’ but with protecting the young and vulnerable and not permitting another institutional cover up on the scale of Savile.

Paul Boateng was introduced to the Lords on 1 July 2010; he was supported by Lord Ouseley and Lord Janner.

Janner was alleged to have befriended the manager of a children’s care home to allow him access to children so he could ‘perpetrate serious sexual offences on children’.

Janner was first interviewed in 1991 after his name was mentioned in the trial of Frank Beck, a notorious paedophile jailed for abusing boys in Leicestershire children’s homes.

He was accused of ‘grooming’ and abusing a boy aged between 13 and 15. But the CPS didn’t pursue the case.

Bombshell papers show Lord Janner was quizzed about his ­relationship with a boy during a private hearing of a 1992 probe into abuse at children’s homes

On his 51st birthday, Paul Boateng was serenaded in the House of Commons by paedophile Michael Jackson, who was on a visit to the UK, organised by Uri Geller and Uri Geller’s good friend Greville Janner.


What links Greville Janner, Michael Jackson,  Paul Boateng and Uri Geller?

51st birthday party for Paul Boateng.

This jolly enterprise included a meeting with the Lord Chancellor, Lord Irvine, a political escapologist who could tell the assembled magicians – and psychics – about how to make cabinets disappear. The distinguished entourage then proceeded to the terrace of the House of Lords, a riverside location where their lordships have been seen enjoying G&Ts on hazy summer evenings, for a surprise 51st birthday party for Mr Boateng.

In a ceremony which, to borrow Lord Janner’s remark, was totally unique, Mr Boateng was presented with a candlelit chocolate cake while his guests, led by the singer of such hits as Thriller, Beat It and Dirty Diana, offered a recognisable rendition of Happy Birthday. “What a fantastic birthday surprise – I can’t believe it,” said Mr Boateng. “I thought it was a spoof. It is the most incredible surprise. It is the best present ever.

The responsibility for dabbing one’s face with a make-up sponge was undertaken by Jackson himself. “I’m impressed by the architecture the most. And I like the gold rooms,” he said at the end of the tour. It was assumed this was not a slight on Mr Boateng, Lord Irvine or Peter Bottomley, the Conservative MP who kindly showed the party around the green benches of the House of Commons.

The official record is a little hazy at this point, but it is understood that Geller, Blaine and Jackson departed for Exeter where they have organised a benefit show to raise money for sufferers of HIV in Africa.

New Michael Jackson Lawsuit Alleges Child-Abuse Procurement Ring
A new lawsuit alleges Michael Jackson’s businesses were a front for grooming children to be abused


The latest complaint, filed by a Jane Doe who alleges that she was abused by Jackson from 1986 to 1989, when she was aged 12 to 15, claims that Jackson secretly operated, “the most sophisticated public child sexual-abuse procurement and facilitation organizations the world has known.”


Michael Jackson child sex syndicate trial date set

March 13, 2017
Wade Robson received a trial date Monday for his blockbuster claims Michael Jackson and his inner circle operated the most elaborate child sex syndicate “the world has known.”The choreographer, who says he was just 5 years old when he first met the King of Pop, is set to begin his negligence trial against the late singer’s companies MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures on March 5, 2018, a Los Angeles judge said.A Robson lawyer said the next 12 months will be spent “gaining access to the materials needed for a much-anticipated trial.”“We look forward to completing that discovery and disclosing to the public, through trial, the full extent of Michael Jackson’s serial sexual abuse of children, which was facilitated through his companies MJJ Productions and Ventures,” lawyer Vince Finaldi said in a statement.An attorney for the companies, meanwhile, said he doesn’t believe the case will make it that far.“My opinion is that summary judgment will be granted in this case and there won’t be any trial, but the court did set a trial date for a year away just in case,” lawyer Howard Weitzman told the Daily News.Robson, who has worked for Britney Spears and N’Sync and appeared as a judge on “So You Think You Can Dance,” is one of three plaintiffs making similar claims in related lawsuits against Jackson’s companies.

The choreographer, 34, filed an amended complaint in September claiming Jackson and key staffers at MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures ran a “sophisticated child sexual abuse procurement and facilitation operation.”

Robson claims Jackson and his employees worked in concert to arrange his private meetings with underage fans, cover travel expenses and shower the youngsters with gifts.

“Make no mistake, Neverland Ranch was nothing but a well-orchestrated trap,” Finaldi previously told The News. “It was custom-built to attract kids so he could groom them and decide which to sexually abuse.”

The amended complaint, obtained by The News, added new negligence claims to his suit against the two companies.

Robson claims he was brought into Jackson’s orbit as a small child in the late 1980s after winning a dance competition in Australia organized by MJJ Ventures.

Two years later, a Jackson assistant contacted his family about meeting with The Gloved One and staying at Neverland during a trip to Los Angeles, he says.

The assistant served as Jacko’s “madam” or “procurer,” his filing states.

During that visit, Jackson allegedly sexually abused Robson. The abuse continued for eight years until Robson hit puberty and Jackson lost interest, according to the complaint.

During the pop icon’s 2005 molestation trial in Santa Barbara County, Robson denied he had been sexually abused. He later recanted, saying it took intensive therapy for him to come to terms with the abuse.

In 2013, Robson’s initial claims against Jackson’s estate were thrown out when a judge ruled he’d waited too long to sue. He is now pursuing the separate civil claims against Jackson’s companies.

A source in Jackson’s camp called the new complaint “too silly” to warrant a response.

More on Boateng

Lord Boateng Christian Preacher, munitions, power broker and friend of Dr Jones, Tony Blair, Prince… MORE HERE….….

Named to Blair Cabinet

Boateng held that post until the Labour Party, led by Tony Blair, won a majority in the 1997 national elections. Blair immediately named Boateng to serve as parliamentary undersecretary of state in the department of health. Between 1998 and 2001, he held a post as minister of state in the Home Office, and then moved on to the Treasury department as its finance secretary. In May of 2002, Blair named him chief secretary for the Treasury, a high position in that ministry and one that qualified him as an official member of cabinet.

Career: Paddington Law Centre, London, England, solicitor, 1976–79; B.M. Birnberg & Co., London, solicitor and partner,1979–87; Bar of Gray’s Inn, barrister, 1989; (Barbara Hewson also at Gray’s in starting in 1985) Police Committee for the Greater London Council, chair, 1981–85; British House of Commons, elected Labour Party candidate from Brent South (London), 1987, reelected every four years until 2001; Labour Party posts: opposition spokesperson on treasury and economic affairs, 1989–92; opposition spokesperson on legal affairs, 1992–97; parliamentary undersecretary of state, Department of Health 1997–98; minister of state, Home Office 1998–2001; finance secretary to the Treasury, 2001–02; and chief secretary to the Treasury, 2002–05; British High Commissioner to South Africa (appointed by Prime Minister Tony Blair), 2005.

Paul Boateng

That cameo took place in 1987…Boateng came bounding onto the platform dressed as a law lord, in a wig and gown, before opening the gown to reveal his assets to an audience

Boateng is a groundbreaker in other ways too. He is also the first member of a British cabinet of any ethnic background ever to have been photographed wearing a leather jock-strap, a suspender belt and stockings – at least in public. And knowing his reputation for having a short temper and an acid tongue, he won’t be pleased for anyone to be reminded of the fact.

The son only returned to England with his Scottish mother Eleanor at the age of 14, after the 1966 coup. He went to school in Apsley, near Hemel Hempstead (where he was head boy) and read law at Bristol University before training to become a solicitor. The anglicisation of Boateng had begun, though to this day he is still widely known in Ghana.

In 1999, disbelieving pupils at Willesden High, a deprived inner-city school in northwest London, heard Boateng tell them they were lucky. He spoke of his school in Ghana where some students “did their homework under the street lamp at night because their parents did not have enough money”.

In reality, this was not Boateng -‘s experience. He was a rich boy

He was educated at Achimota, Accra Academy, Apsley Grammar School, Bristol University and the College of Law.

Benjamin Boateng  whose father is Lord Boateng, was a sexual predator who believed he had a ‘proprietary right’ to women.

He was jailed for three years and ten months.

He will also have to sign the sex offenders register.

He was found guilty of sexual assault by a majority jury verdict

it later emerged that Boateng was cautioned in March last year for harassment after sending a former girlfriend unpleasant text messages.

And in 2006 he was cleared of raping an 18-year-old girl twice in South Africa, where his father Paul was Britain’s High Commissioner.

Lord Boateng declined to comment.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much (a) core and(b) project funding he is providing in the current financial year for (i) Parentline and (ii) Childline; and how much he is providing for Childline’s work on bullying in schools. [70707]

Mr. Boateng

In the current financial year, the Home Office is providing £108,000 to Parentline to help them expand the service they provide into a national freephone helpline for parents. This is in addition to £25,000 from the Department of Health under their section 64 grants programme and £35,000 funding from the Department for Education and Employment to the National Stepfamilies Association for a joint project with Parentline.

The Home Office does not fund Childline.

Mr. Hutton

ChildLine were awarded a grant under Section 64 of the Health Services and Public Health Act 1968 for a three year period in 1996–97. They received £183,000 in 1996–97, £173,000 in 1997–98, and £163,000 in 1998–99. ChildLine have also received a Section 64 Grant of £60,000 over the last three years for their special helpline for children in care.

We intend to award ChildLine a Renewal Core grant under the Section 64 Grant award scheme for the next three years. We will be making £187,500 available in 1999–2000, £180,000 in 2000–01 and £175,000 in 2001–02. In addition, we will be making £50,000 a year available for the three financial years 1999–2000, 2000–01, and 2001–02 so that ChildLine may provide a helpline for looked after children.

Ex-Home Secretary Leon Brittan is being unfairly “pilloried” over his handling of a missing dossier on alleged paedophile politicians in the 1980s on the basis of a “witch hunt”, former minister David Mellor has said.

Mr Mellor said the file was spoken of at the time as “not very substantive“.

on his LBC radio show, he (Mellor) said he remembered “sort of chat around the department” that it “wasn’t a very substantive thing at all“.

Is Peter Tatchell A Paedophile Or Simply Misunderstood?

Peter Tatchell was born in Melbourne Australia on 25th January 1952, he moved to London in 1971 to avoid conscription. In 1978 Tatchell joined the Labour Party and moved to Bermondsey, South East London. Tatchell ran as the Bermondsey Labour Party candidate in the 1983 General Election. Despite Bermondsey being a Labour stronghold he lost to Liberal candidate Simon Hughes. In February 2000 he left the Labour Party for unknown reasons. In 2004 he joined the Green Party and was chosen to be their candidate for Oxford East in the 2010 General Election, however for some reason he withdrew his candidacy in 2009.
Comrade Tatchell
Peter Tatchell (the UK’s most prominent homosexual activist and a favourite of the BBC) has done more than demand the abolition of the age of consent, he has broken the law on the age of consent in Britain at least once.

Peter Tatchell is a regular on the BBC. The BBC have refused to state whether he appears as a human rights activist, homosexual campaigner or paedophilie apologist.
Peter Tatchell is a regular on the BBC. The BBC have refused to state whether he appears as a human rights activist, homosexual campaigner or paedophile apologist. They have also refused to state how much they have paid him for appearances.

As a gay 18-year-old Australian anti-Vietnam war draft-dodger, he came to the UK in 1971 and lived with a 16-year-old boy in London. The homosexual age of consent in England at the time was 21. Later he campaigned for lowering it to 16, and now he wants it lowered again to 14. What will he want after that?

When the age of consent for homosexuals was lowered to 16 an Outrage (Tatchell’s organization) banner said “16 is just a start” – it didn’t state what the end goal was.

Mr Tatchell criticises the age of consent laws. Here is a quotation from his own website:

“Nevertheless, like any minimum age, it is arbitrary and fails to acknowledge that different people mature sexually at different ages. A few are ready for sex at 12; others not until they’re 20. Having a single, inflexible age of consent doesn’t take into account these differences. It dogmatically imposes a limit, regardless of individual circumstances“.

Peter Tatchell wrote the chapter “Questioning Ages of Majority and Ages of Consent” for a book openly advocating paedophilia and finding ways “to make paedophilia acceptable“.

This book, published in 1986 and called The Betrayal of Youth (B.O.Y.), was edited by Warren Middleton, then vice-chairperson of the Paedophile Information Exchange, Britain’s number one paedophile advocacy group.

Stephen Green, anti-paedophile campaigner wrote: “The book was part of a campaign to abolish all ages of consent, destroy the responsibilities of parents for their children, deny any ill-effects on children of interference by paedophiles, and withal to make it easier for paedophiles to gain sexual access to children.“

In The Betrayal of Youth Tatchell wrote that the age of sexual consent is “Reinforcing a set of increasingly quaint, minority moral values left over from the Victorian era“.

Tatchell often ambushes public figures who don’t support the homosexual/paedophile agenda. The MSM and especially the BBC usually give him great publicity for these stunts.
Tatchell often ambushes public figures who don’t support the homosexual/paedophile agenda. The MSM and especially the BBC usually give him great publicity for these stunts.

He was not on his own in this belief.Many of his fellow socio-communists and homosexual activists thought the same:

Campaign for Homosexual Equality chairman Michael Jarrett was identifying paedophiles as an oppressed group, and the CHE list of “demands” included the complete abolition of minimum ages for sexual activity. The Labour Gay Rights Manifesto of 1985 said ‘A socialist society would supersede the family household. … Gay people and children should have the right to live together. … It follows from what we have already said that we favour the abolition of the age of consent.’


Feminists like Beatrice Faust contributed to The Betrayal of Youth, as well as other homosexual activists besides Tatchell, including Jeffrey Weeks and Eric Presland, who “related his first paedophile experience with an Asian boy of thirteen, and boasted of interfering with a little boy of six“.

The book is considered so toxic that Amazon doesn’t sell it and you cannot search its content in Google Books.

Tatchell is well aware of how much all this is bad publicity for him and keeps rationalizing and adjusting his positions, but only the ideologically blind or pathologically naive cannot see through his self-excuses.

He has prepared a standard self-defence which can be found on his own website and has been repeated verbatim on many outlets. It used to also be on the site of his friend militant atheist, Richard Dawkins, but it’s not there any more. Maybe even Dawkins draws a line at what is morally allowed, even though his motto is “There’s probably no God – now stop worrying and enjoy your life”.

In this article that supposedly should serve to exculpate him, Tatchell has nothing better than this: “The critics also cite Warren Middleton’s 1980s book, Betrayal of Youth, to which I contributed a chapter. I had no idea that he was involved in child sex abuse matters when I was asked to write.”

Considering that Warren Middleton was co-founder and vice-chairperson of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), a prominent group promoting paedophilia, it was impossible for Tatchell not to have known his propensities. In addition, both Tatchell and Middleton were part of the Gay Liberation Front/Angry Brigade, a neo-Marxist revolutionary group of radical students at the London School of Economics, thus making Tatchell’s protestations of ignorance verge on the ridiculous.

Peter Tatchell’s self-defence begins with:

“Unlike many Catholic clergy, I have never abused anyone. Unlike the Pope, I have never failed to report abusers or covered up their crimes.”

These are blatant falsities. It wasn’t many Catholic clergy, it was an extremely small minority. And, as shown in Lies About The Catholic Church Child Sex Abuse Scandal, there is no reason, except bigotry and prejudice, to single out Catholic clergy who in fact have committed fewer of these crimes than any other pedagogic institution, religious or secular.

Peter Tatchell and his homosexual/paedophile allies often attacked the Christian Church for having Christian values. There is no record of him bursting in to a synagogue or mosque to protest against their religous values.
Peter Tatchell and his homosexual/paedophile allies often attacked the Christian Church for having Christian values. There is no record of him bursting in to a synagogue or mosque to protest against their religious values.

Saying what he does about the Pope is a criminal act, it is slander. The Pope has never covered up for anyone.Tatchell and his friends in the mainstream media (especially the BBC) think that if you repeat a lie enough times your audience will start to believe that it’s true.

But blaming the Church whenever you’re in trouble is a good way to distract the public from your own deviations from the norm. It’s worked so far so why shouldn’t it work now? Maybe because people have started calling your bluff, Pete.

Peter Tatchell has a seething hatred of Christian morals and values.
Peter Tatchell has a seething hatred of Christian morals and values.

The above should tell you how trustworthy and credible Tatchell is, but there’s more.

Look at his defence of the book Dares To Speak:

“Dares to Speak was an academic book published in 1997, authored by professors, anthropologists, psychologists, sociologists, a Dutch senator and a former editor of a Catholic newspaper. It discussed the age of sexual consent and whether all sex between young people and adults is necessarily unwanted and harmful, based on what it said was objective research with young people.

The book does not endorse or excuse sexual relationships with young people that involve coercion, manipulation or damage. The authors queried, among other things, the balance between giving young people sexual rights and protecting them against abuse. These are entirely legitimate issues to discuss.”

Leaving aside the irony (probably lost on humorless Tatchell) about his using a “former editor of a Catholic newspaper” as a guarantor of the morality of a book while he constantly treats the Catholic Church like a den of abusers. The book Dares to Speak, that Tatchell praises so much as an academic achievement, was edited by Joseph Geraci, who was also the editor of Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia. The book is a collection of articles from the journal.

Before it was quietly removed, this was Wikipedia’s entry for the publication:

Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia (1987–1995) was a journal published by the Stichting Paidika Foundation whose purpose was to promote the normalization of pedophilia. Its editor was Joseph Geraci and the editorial board included articles by writers Frits Bernard, Edward Brongersma, Vern L. Bullough, and D. H. (Donald) Mader, some of whom campaigned as pro-pedophile activists.

After the normalization of homosexuality, we’ll have the normalization of paedophilia.

Here is Tatchell’s letter to the Guardian dated 26th June 1997 (a few weeks after Labour’s General Election win) which he denied writing when I asked him about it. However I can find no record of a complaint to the Guardian, the Press Complaints Commission or any lawsuit for libel:
Ros Coward (Why Dares to Speak says nothing useful, June 23) thinks it is “shocking” that Gay Men’s Press has published a book, Dares To Speak, which challenges the assumption that all sex involving children and adults is abusive. I think it is courageous. The distinguished psychologists and anthropologists cited in this book deserve to be heard. Offering a rational, informed perspective on sexual relations between younger and older people, they document examples of societies where consenting inter-generational sex is considered normal, beneficial and enjoyable by old and young alike.
Prof Gilbert Herdt points to the Sambia tribe of Papua New Guinea, where all young boys have sex with older warriors as part of their initiation into manhood. Far from being harmed, Prof Herdt says the boys grow up to be happy, well-adjusted husbands and fathers. The positive nature of some child-adult sexual relationships is not confined to non-Western cultures. Several of my friends – gay and straight, male and female – had sex with adults from the ages of nine to 13. None feel they were abused. All say it was their conscious choice and gave them great joy. 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.

P.I.E – Paedophile Information Exchange

Members/Activists/Connected of P.I.E
Former PIE Chairperson and current pro-paedophile activist Tom O’Carroll

David Joy, 66 – once No2 in the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange. In 1984 he was jailed for 18 months for publishing obscene material in a PIE newsletter. In 1996 he got two more years after admitting indecent assaults dating back to the 80s. Then in January 2006 cops found 1,129 images of children aged one to 13 at his rundown flat in Loughborough, Leics. Some were in the level 5 category – featuring sado-masochism, torture or bestiality.

DR Morris Fraser – P.I.E founder member & leading child psychiatrist – had a criminal record for taking indecent photographs of children and assault in 1972. Good friends with both Napier, Waters and Righton

Terrence Waters – Former prep school teacher – Closely linked to several P.I.E members incl Andrew Sadler – adopted the alias “James Opphin daler”. The name contains an anagram of the word “paedophile”. In 1994 Waters was sentenced to ten years for possessing child abuse images and the sexual abuse of a 10 year old boy. In 2011 convicted for more sexual abuse against children at Allen House School – More on Waters on this link
Michael Johnson – jailed for four years on six specimen counts of indecent assault against two boys aged nine and 11. In 1988 Dr Morris Fraser and Michael Johnson set up a sailing charity for disadvantaged boys called the Azimuth Trust based in Cornwall.

Former chairman/leader Steven Freeman aka Steven Adrian Smith

Freeman/Smith was a former Home Office security guard and was described in court in 1984 as the, “powerhouse and engine room of P.I.E, and the life blood of contact which he edited and printed.
The members’ hotline for the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) rang, of all places, inside the Home Office. The phone would be picked up by Steven Smith, a paedophile and member of the group who worked in security in Whitehall, from where he would tell callers where to go for the next meeting to discuss issues including decriminalising sex with children as young as four.

John Stamford – A former church minister published international guides for child molesters. He died before his trial. Stamford used a homosexual travel guide called spartacus as a front for a mailing ordering service offering information on child prostitutes in Thailand, Brazil and other nations. The organisation was alleged to have operated through a box number in London. The details of each of the members, including their sexual preferences, the desired age of the children and preferred countries of origin were stored on a computer. The members received personalised lists of children.

Stephen King aka Stephen Gosling – so called child expert was a member of P.I.E. His unbelievable role was to advise UK judges on sentencing for paedophiles

Stephen King,who even advised the courts on appropriate sentences for offenders, ?assulted many

A predatory paedophile who established himself as an “expert” adviser to the police and courts on sex crimes was jailed yesterday for seven years for systematically abusing three girls.

Police believe Stephen King, who even advised the courts on appropriate sentences for offenders, could have assaulted many others over three decades.

King had no formal qualifications in the field but was a “self-proclaimed expert on the Children’s Act and pornography – he made it his life’s work”.

King’s advice was offered to and accepted by a number of agencies, including the Crown Prosecution Service, the Metropolitan Police, the Sentencing Advisory Panel and the Appeal Court.

Mr Zinner said: “He had lectured to various criminal justice conferences at which the Met Police, the CPS, the Probation Service and other interested agencies were present.”

King recorded his activities in meticulous detail, the court heard. There were more than 560 indecent photographs, a video recording of indecent acts and a diary of his sexual encounters.

King, of Herne Hill, south London, was a member of the Paedophile Information Exchange. He plied the children with alcohol before abusing them, the court heard. One of the victims had learning difficulties and all three had been severely traumatised by the assaults. One had attempted suicide.

King’s crimes were uncovered when pornographic material was discovered on his computer while he was being investigated for alleged benefit fraud.

Luis Macchiavello, the director of London-based firm Infolog, said that King lectured as a guest speaker on child pornography at conferences organised by the company. Mr Macchiavello said he could not recall how many times King had been invited to speak.

John Carr, the internet adviser to the children’s charity NCH, said he had refused to lecture at some conferences that had been privately organised because of concerns over security.

Officers also discovered that he had worked close to children for years as a tutor, athletics coach and photographer. They fear he may have abused many more girls.

“In 2002 the defendant submitted advice to the sentencing advisory panel on offences involving child pornography. He was credited in the final recommendations to the court of appeal alongside the Law Society, Bar Council, the Law Commission and the Probation Service.”

Luis Macchiavello, director of Infolog with which King was linked, said: “He was a speaker in our events. I can’t recall how many events he spoke at. We have hundreds if not thousands of people who speak at our events.”

King’s name features in a 2002 report on child pornography submitted by the sentencing advisory panel, whose members are appointed by the lord chancellor, to the appeal court. Lesley Dix, secretary to the panel, said his name was included only because he offered a response to a consultation paper. His opinion had not been actively sought.

A spokesman for the Met said King had not directly worked for the force.

Michael Hanson – First chairman (set up P.I.E. as a special interest group within the Scottish Minorities Group with Ian Dunn)
Keith Hose – 2ND Chairman In the PIE Chairperson’s Annual Report for 1975-6, Keith Hose wrote that ‘The only way for PIE to survive, was to seek out as much publicity for the organization as possible…. If we got bad publicity we would not run into a corner but stand and fight. We felt that the only way to get more paedophiles joining P I E… was to seek out and try to get all kinds of publications to print our organization’s name and address and to make pedophilia a real public issue.’
British antiques expert Keith Harding was active in the Paedophile Information Exchange
Harding was convicted of indecent assault against four children aged eight and nine in the late 1950s and was a “schedule 1” offender – meaning his convictions remained on his police file for life.
But he was later given the Freedom of the City of London and became a member of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, meeting business and political figures at the height of his career. The clockmaker and music box expert ran a museum regularly visited by children, despite social services being aware 20 years ago of his convictions for child abuse.

A document held by police in the mid-1980s listed Keith Harding as PIE member number 329 next to his north London address.
Ian Campbell Dunn – Co-founder (born 01/05/43 died 10/03/98)

Shortly before his death, Dunn, a prominent gay activist, became convener of lobby group Outright Scotland. In 1997, he condemned police over a camera surveillance operation in public toilets in Stirling which led to several gay men being charged – even though the investigation also revealed that some men had sex with a 13-year-old boy. In 1974, Dunn co -founded the Paedophile Information Exchange ( PIE) with Michael Hanson. It became the leading contact group for adults campaigning for the right to have sex with children. In an interview in 1997, Dunn admitted he and Hanson had agreed to facilitate research into sex with children.
Dunn was caught on tape bragging abut interfering with a fourteen-year-old boy. The existence of the tape caused him to abandon a libel action he had brought against a Sunday newspaper, which named him as a paedophile. The encounter itself does not seem to have been a one-off – at his funeral in 1998, a young man claimed Dunn had raped him when he was fifteen. Dunn also supported a paedophile magazine called ‘Minor Problems.’
Charles Napier One-time treasurer of PIE Charles Napier is alleged to have sexually assaulted boys whilst a gym master at Copthorne School. He became an English Language Trainer at the British Council and was convicted of sexual assault against minors in London in 1995 and investigated as an alleged member of a paedophile network operating in British schools in 1996. He set up his own school in Turkey and resumed English Language Training with the British Council after serving his sentence

During 1975, while Paedophile Information Exchange member Roger Moody was working for Peace News he was promoting the organisation in its pages.

2 female authors/contributors to PIE’s Warren Middleton’s B.O.Y were also involved with Peace News like Roger Moody

(Chapter 4: ‘Gender Differences’ by Liz Holtom and Kathy Challis: both from  Peace News.)

Peace/anti-nuclear campaigners heavily targeted by state surveillance since pre1970s to current day:

So how with all the surveillance were the paedophiles for peace lobbyists missed?

Or were they a useful control/eye on non-paedophile peace campaigners?

Were paedophiles used as informants on anti-nuclear protestors?

Perusing Peace News from 1975+ I was glad to find ONE letter to Editor saying what I was thinking….

paraphrased: “What’s with Peace News new preoccupation with paedophile rights? What’s it got to do with anti-nuclear/peace activism?”

Writer of letter was an extremely disappointed long-term subscriber who just couldn’t fathom what had changed for Peace News

Government lawyers…in a vain attempt to keep a lid on Peter Wright’s revelations, seem to be turning a blind eye toward Peace News – the paper published passages from Spycatcher.

Jimmy Savile: The London School of Economics/National Health/Tavistock Connection


“These ‘educational missionaries’ spoke of schools as if they were monasteries. By limiting the idea of education to formal school instruction, the public gradually lost sight of what the real thing was. The questions these specialists disputed were as irrelevant to real people as the disputes of medieval divines; there was about their writing a condescension for public concerns, for them ‘the whole range of education had become an instrument of deliberate social purpose.’ (emphasis added).”
—John Taylor Gatto, Underground History of American Education

As a possibly last series of connections to map, I am returning to Robert Graves’ buddy William Sargant, who worked at St Thomas’ Hospital from 1948 to the end of his career as head of the department of psychological medicine. In 1962, Sargant found himself a new assistant in one David Owen, a neurology and psychiatric registrar who had only just qualified as a doctor. Two years earlier, Owen had joined the Vauxhall branch of the Labor Party and the Fabian Society.[1] The reason this is relevant is that Owen was allegedly complicit in allowing Jimmy Savile access to the psychiatric hospital Broadmoor, where he (Savile) abused countless patients over a period between 1968 and 2004 (when Savile had use of a personal set of keys to the hospital). According to The Daily Telegraph, Savile’s “involvement at Broadmoor was rubber-stamped in 1974 by Dr. David Owen, now Lord Owen, who was health minister.” Thanks to Owen, Savile “came to be in charge of Broadmoor for a period in the 1980s when he was put in charge of a task force to run the secure hospital.”

It’s generally been assumed that the reason Savile wanted (and was given) access to Broadmoor (besides visiting his pals Reggie Kray and Peter Sutcliffe) was to indulge his sadistic sexual proclivities by taking advantage of defenseless young girls (many of whom were simply runaways or troublemakers at school). No doubt this was part of it, but it may not have been the whole reason. It’s also possible, in the light of all the other evidence of similar “schooling” programs going on through the UK and the US and elsewhere for decades, that Savile had a specific role at Broadmoor, and that the institution was being used as a locale for the sorts of sexual and social research and experimentation which has fascinated the Fabians and others since at least the turn of the century. Maybe Broadmoor was, like Wedekind’s Sadian castle, a prison-school for “the bodily education of young girls”?

Nor are we talking only about Broadmoor. In 2014, Kate Lampard carried out an independent review of Savile’s predations within the British National Health Service (NHS), including over forty hospitals. Her report was quoted in The Guardian in 2015: “Savile’s status and influence . . . . was enhanced by the endorsement and encouragement he received from politicians, senior civil servants and NHS managers. His access within NHS hospitals gave Savile the opportunity to commit sexual abuses on a grand scale for nearly 50 years.” (emphasis added)

The article goes on to quote Liz Dux, a lawyer who represents 44 of Savile’s victims, calling the report a “crushing disappointment” because it held no one accountable.

“‘It beggars belief that a report which has revealed Savile was widely known as a sex pest at Stoke Mandeville can find no evidence of management responsibility,’ Dux said. ‘Ten victims had reported their assaults to nursing staff on the ward, including one complaint being made to management, yet still his deviant and sickening behaviour continued.’ She said the revelation in the report that three other doctors had committed serious sexual offences at the hospital in the past four decades suggested “something seriously amiss.’” (For the dozens of separate hospital reports of Savile’s fifty years of sexual abuse, go here.)

I have said that I wish to avoid unnecessary speculation with this work; but on this occasion I’m willing to go out on a limb, because without the horrifying context provided by Savile’s activities, the following information may seem random and bizarre. And maybe it is, but the only way to find out if the pieces fit is by placing them side by side.

The following facts are taken from a Mental Health History Timeline assembled by Middlesex University:

“In 1926 [the year Jimmy Savile was born] An appeal to The Commonwealth Fund (New York) by Cyril Burt and Amy Strachey, (born Amy Simpson 1866) ‘Mrs. St Loe Strachey’ for funds to start training psychiatric social workers at the London School of Economics (see below) and support for Child Guidance.” (What exactly do economics have to do with psychiatry or child guidance?) Three years later, in 1929 (the year Westlake founded his Forest School): “With money from The Commonwealth Fund, a Diploma in Mental Health started at the London School of Economics to train Psychiatric Social Workers. The fund’s Director, Barry Smith, had written in 1928 that ‘the training of psychiatric social workers is an essential and fundamental part of [a] child guidance program.’”

Some corroboration from the US National Library of Medicine:

“When the Commonwealth Fund agreed to finance the establishment of child guidance clinics in Britain, it stressed the need to train social workers in a university setting. Thus in 1929, the London School of Economics established the first course to train social science graduates with some experience of social work as PSWs. In the same year, the Association of Psychiatric Social Work (hereafter APSW) was inaugurated with the dual objectives of promoting mental hygiene, and raising the professional status of psychiatric social work.” (“‘Often there is a Good Deal to be Done, But Socially Rather Than Medically’: The Psychiatric Social Worker as Social Therapist, 1945–70”)

The Commonwealth Fund is a private foundation that is still around today. It was founded in 1918 by the widow of Stephen Vanderburgh Harkness. Harkness was the American entrepreneur and silent partner of John D. Rockefeller, Sr., in the founding of Standard Oil (and a director of Standard Oil until his death). Today, the Rockefeller Foundation houses all the archives for the Commonwealth fund. From their website: “As an independent, nonpartisan organization, the foundation has aimed to help develop common ground from which policymakers across the political spectrum can lead the nation toward a health care system that assures its residents have long, healthy, and productive lives.” (emphasis added)

Anna M. Harkness

Cyril Burt, mentioned above, was a member of the London School of Differential Psychology, and of the British Eugenics Society, so probably a Fabian. Amy Strachey, a.k.a. “Mrs. St Loe,” was the wife of John Strachey, a British journalist and father of the other John Strachey already mentioned in this work, the Labor politician who was at Oxford in 1922, when my grandfather arrived. Strachey joined the Labor Party the following year in 1923. From 1946 to 1950, he was the Minister of Food, which would have given him plenty of reason to have had dealings with Alec Horsley. While I have found no definite links to MI5 or MI6, his name certainly crops up a lot in related literature, and he is almost certainly one of the circle.[2]

The Mental Health Timeline continues (for 1929) by mentioning a work called Our Baby—For Mothers and Nurses, eventually published in 1936 by John Wright/Simpkin Marshall, which “on page 126 lists Idiocy under Congenital Defects”:

“This is a term for mental weakness which dates from birth. It varies in degree from a mere feebleness of intellect, to a state in which the mind seems wholly absent. Should a child fail to answer to most of the tests of normal progress given on page 88, it must be considered backward, and the child should be taken to a doctor, as systematic training should be begun very early, considerable improvement being then almost always possible.”

This description clearly evokes what would become standard operating procedure with autistics in the coming decades. And do I need remind the reader of Russell’s plan for close surveillance, categorization and the use of “behaviourism” with children, from the moment of conception onward?

The Timeline then quotes a “Wood Report on Mental Deficiency published by the Board of Control”[3] from the same year:

“the majority of the feeble-minded are to be found within a relatively small social group, a group which may be described as the subnormal or social problem group, representing approximately 10 per cent of the whole population. Most of the parents in this subnormal group are themselves of poor mental endowment, and would no doubt have been classed, when children, among the dull or retarded. Similarly the dull children of the present generation, who form a large majority amongst children in this subnormal group, are the potential parents of many feeble-minded in the next generation. Therefore, from the standpoint of the prevention of many social evils it is of the utmost importance that the problems of the education and social care of the borderline retarded child should be effectively tackled. . . . Let us assume that we could segregate as a separate community all the families in this country containing mental defectives of the primary amentia type. We should find that we had collected among them a most interesting social group. It would include, as everyone who has extensive practical experience of social service would readily admit, a much larger proportion of insane persons, epileptics, paupers, criminals (especially recidivists), unemployables, habitual slum dwellers, prostitutes, inebriates and other social inefficients than would a group of families not containing mental defectives. The overwhelming majority of the families thus collected will belong to that section of the community which we propose to term the ‘social problem’ or ‘subnormal’ group. This group comprises approximately the lowest 10 per cent in the social scale of most communities.” (Full report in several parts here.)

The Mental Health Timeline then refers to the April 1929 Journal of the American Medical Association about the establishment of the London Child Guidance Clinic (citing “Bowlby 1936” and “Tavistock 1967” and cites (in 1929) a “Conference on Mental Health convened by the Joint Committee of the National Council for Mental Hygiene and the Tavistock Square Clinic. Held in Westminster.”

The Bowlby referred to is Edward John Mostyn Bowlby, a British psychologist, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst, notable for his interest in child development and for his pioneering work in attachment theory. (A Review of General Psychology survey published in 2002 ranked Bowlby as the 49th most cited psychologist of the 20th century.) Bowlby worked during World War II in Canonbury in the child psychiatry unit with maladapted and delinquent children, which led to an interest in the development of children, and to his work at the Child Guidance Clinic in Islington, London. By his own account, he had help getting established from some “academic economist” friends.[4]

As for the Child Guidance Clinic, it was founded by the Jewish Health Organization in 1927 and was the first children’s psychiatric facility in the UK, and allegedly also Europe. From The Use of Psychoanalytic Concepts in Therapy with Families, by Hilary A. Davies:

“It was set up to meet the needs of the immigrant population who had settled in that part of London since the beginning of the century and whose children were perceived to have emotional, psychological, behavioral, and educational difficulties. A foreword to an early report by the Clinic is quoted as saying that ‘in its efforts to adjust the groping child mind to life, to make useful citizens of difficult and abnormal boys and girls [it] is doing the work of civilization.’ . . . The Clinic was able to offer a service to almost 1900 children and families from all over the UK in the first 4½ years of its existence. The Clinic later moved and became the Tavistock.”[5]

Returning to the Mental Health Timeline, John Bowlby joined the Tavistock Clinic in 1946 as Deputy Director and set up the Children’s Department to develop clinical services, training and research. In 1948, he obtained a small grant from the Sir Halley Stewart Trust to “empirically study the effects of early separation and deprivation” (emphasis added). For his research, he hired a psychiatric social worker (James Robertson, presumably LSE-trained). The London Child Guidance Clinic eventually became the Child Guidance Training Centre and was housed in the Tavistock Centre from 1967. In 1985, it merged with the Tavistock Clinic’s Department for Children and Parents and became the Child and Family Department.

I noticed in the Timeline at this point (1986) the mention of “MBE [first appointment to the Order of the British Empire, the one before OBE] in New Year Honours: Miss Eve Saville, General Secretary, Institute for the Study and Treatment of Delinquency.” A quick search revealed that Miss Eve Saville was a Fabian.[6] Whether she was related to Jimmy, OBE, I do not know and I doubt anyone else does (not counting those who do). The names Savile and Saville seem to be more or less interchangeable, and one easy way for Sir Jimmy (who called his mum “the Duchess”) to cover any possible aristocratic ancestral tracks might have been to remove one of the l’s. Eve is a somewhat mysterious character, considering there is almost nothing about her online and yet there is a Memorial Lecture named after her. She was the author of an obscure tract called “A History of the I.S.T.D [Institute for the Study and Treatment of Delinquency]: A Study of Crime and Delinquency from 1931 to 1992.”

After a period searching through Google Books, I found a most unexpected affiliation between Eve Saville and Victor Neuburg, Crowley’s ill-fated homosexual partner and disciple, and fellow phallus-worshipper with Dion Byngham. In The Magical Dilemma of Victor Neuburg, the author Jean Overton Fuller reveals, through her correspondence with Eve Saville, that Neuberg was one of the founding members of the ISTD. In a letter to Fuller, Saville writes that Neuberg “was present at the very first meeting [at Primrose Hill, near Hampstead, and] appeared as one of the original members of the Executive Committee and as Honorary Secretary at the beginning of 1931.” A list of thirty-nine Vice-Presidents for 1934 included Freud, Jung, Adler, Havelock Ellis, and H. G. Wells.

[1] Owen went to school at Mount House School, Tavistock, an English town written about by Arthur Conan Doyle and Neal Stephenson. I can’t find any link between the Tavistock Institute and the town, though it stands to reason they must have taken the name from somewhere.

[2] Without going into all the details, Strachey also has traceable links to Lord Boothby (whom he probably met at Oxford), Tom Wintringham and Victor Gollancz (of the 1941 Committee), Keynes and Laski (of LSE), Richard Acland, Tom Driberg, and so on.

[3] “In June 1924 the Chief Medical Officer of the Board of Education, Sir George Newman, appointed a committee to consider the problems presented by the ‘mentally defective’ child. A year later the committee was asked to include ‘adult defectives’ in its inquiry, so the report was presented, in January 1929, both to Newman and to the Chairman of the Board of Control. The chair of the committee was Arthur Henry Wood. Born in Reading in December 1870, he was educated at Cranbrook Grammar School and New College Oxford. The 1901 census describes him as an examiner for the Board of Education and he went on to become Assistant Secretary to the Board. He served as secretary for the Consultative Committee’s 1909 report Attendance, Compulsory or Otherwise, at Continuation Schools. . . . Also on the committee was the eugenicist Cyril Burt.”

[4] John Bowlby told Milton Senn in 1977: “The London Child Guidance Clinic was set up in a part of Islington called Canonbury. That clinic, I think, was founded in 1929.  It trained educational psychologists, social workers and child psychiatrists.  Each year three fellowships in child psychiatry were advertised—they were half-time fellowships for one year—and in 1936 I was successful in being appointed to one of them.  I used to spend every morning at Canonbury and a bit of the afternoon usually as well, and then I went on and did analysis later in the day.  I should say that I always had a few hundred pounds of private money—very important—which meant to say that I was not pressed for bread and butter. I was at the time also much influenced by two close friends who were academic economists, one of whom is my brother-in-law and one of whom was a very close personal friend with whom I shared a flat, and they represented a strong academic interest. . . . Both were very able people, both have gone a long way though unfortunately, one, Evan Durbin, died in a very tragic accident in 1948.  They were first-class people which was very important, really, because I was espousing a very novel and peculiar outlook as an analytically oriented child psychiatrist as we might call it. That was what I was aspiring to be. The whole field was still very controversial and needed a lot of academic justification. Well, to cut a long story short—first of all I had had a good scientific training at Cambridge, and secondly, my academic friends were very powerful debaters and any position which I took up I had to justify up to the hilt by argument and evidence.  This was an invaluable discipline I think.” (Emphasis added.)

[5] Hilary A. Davies, Karnac Books, 2010, p. 15. The citation about doing the work of civilization is attributed, via a website, to “Lady Lawrence” who was Chairman of the Clinic in 1934 and had written a foreword to a report.  The website states its source as The Times and makes a guess as to the identity of the Lady Lawrence in question being Lady Rosamond Lawrence, a British novelist who wrote several popular books before marrying and relocating to India. However, it’s also possible the Lady Lawrence referred to was the British Labor MP Susan Lawrence, who was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health in 1929. Lawrence had joined the Fabian Society a few years previously, and was close friends with Sydney and Beatrice Webb.


Was Clement Freud part of a paedophile ring?


Revealed: Police launch probe into what Clement Freud knew about Maddie as we uncover new details about ex-MP’s disturbing relationship with the McCanns

  • Another astonishing twist in case of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance 
  • Freud befriended the McCanns in Praia da Luz, in the western Algarve 
  • With laid-back security the area became a hive of paedophile activity 
  • Freud invited McCanns around for lunch two months after disappearance  

Every last, tenuous lead had been followed to its conclusion, every unlikely theory had been explored. Witnesses were re-examined, morsels of evidence painstakingly re-evaluated. Yet still there was nothing.

So, by the end of this summer, the last rites in Operation Grange — the Metropolitan Police’s five-year, £12 million investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann — were expected to have been played out.

Met chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe warned that the end was approaching in a radio interview two months ago. The team of detectives working on the case had been cut from more than 30 to two or three, he said, and when they had followed one remaining line of inquiry, the plug would have to be pulled.

This week, however, there has been yet another astonishing twist — one that has given the dying inquiry fresh impetus

Police are investigating what Freud knew about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann

Last Wednesday, I can reveal, two detectives from Operation Grange were quietly dispatched to Somerset to pursue a new avenue of inquiry. They spent 90 minutes interviewing Vicky Haynes, the 64-year-old grandmother who, in a haunting Daily Mail interview last week, told how she had been sexually abused as a 14-year-old girl by the late broadcaster, humorist, politician and chef Sir Clement Freud.

For Mrs Haynes suspects that Freud — who owned a secluded villa in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz, a few hundred yards from the Ocean Club holiday complex from which Madeleine vanished in May 2007 — harboured crucial information about her fate.

And she fears that when the celebrated former Liberal MP died, aged 84, in 2009, he may have taken this grisly secret to his grave. Indeed, her son, Mason, told me he first emailed the Operation Grange team, to alert them to this disturbing suspicion, some three years ago, after they learned that Freud not only kept a holiday home in Praia da Luz, but that he invited Gerry and Kate McCann to lunch there, just two months after Madeleine went missing.

Mason is one of the world’s most respected close-protection guards.

Yet he says the Grange team either ignored or forgot about his message, and ‘apologetically’ retrieved it only this week after his mother told her story to the Mail.

‘When I heard about the connection between Clement Freud and the McCanns, a light-bulb was switched on in my head,’ he told me. ‘It makes no sense for a man we now know to have been a predatory paedophile to have invited them into his life, at that time, unless he had some ulterior motive.

‘My theory is that if you live somewhere for 25 years [the length of time Freud owned his Algarve villa] as a paedophile, you become part of the paedophile ring that exists in that area. You share information and stories; that’s how it works.

‘I think the abduction was carried out by that ring, and Freud knew something about what happened to the child. Either he invited Madeleine’s parents to his house to get some sick turn-on out of their visit, or he was trying to get information about where the police had got to with the investigation.

‘It is well-known by psychologists that paedophiles like to go back to the scene of their crimes. Perhaps this was his way of doing it.

‘Freud was 83 at the time. I’m not suggesting he went to that flat and abducted Madeleine himself. But you never stop being a paedophile, no matter how old you are, and I think he knew something.’

With those words in mind, it is chilling to recall that Kate McCann once described a nightmare in which she dreamt Madeleine was buried on a hillside on the outskirts of Praia da Luz . . . close to Clement Freud’s villa.

Many years ago, before the rugged western tip of Portugal morphed into a package-holiday destination favoured by middle-class families such as the McCanns, it attracted a very different type of Briton.

With its donkey-paced ambience, rustic villas that were as ridiculously cheap as the delicious local wine and fish, and a relaxed moral code (described by one long-time expat as ‘anything goes, as long as nobody knows’), it was then a magnet for Bohemian celebrities and minor aristocrats.

Among those lured to this furthermost tip of the Continent was Freud, whose diverse talents — including being the hangdog face of the nation’s favourite pet-food commercial (juxtaposed with his lookalike bloodhound, Henry) — had made him a national treasure.

The father-of-five also wrote children’s books and became a fixture for a time on the much-loved after-school programme Jackanory.

Perhaps not coincidentally, Clement Freud was a friend of the paedophile entertainer Rolf Harris, too, having given the Australian his entrée into the London club scene when he managed a West End nightspot. And after being elected as the maverick Liberal MP for the Isle of Ely, in 1973, he shared a Commons office with another serial child abuser, Cyril Smith.

Freud had homes in St John’s Wood and Suffolk. In 1987, after losing his parliamentary seat and acquiring a knighthood, he also bought a white-washed villa on the promontory overlooking Praia da Luz bay.

Sir Clement Freud’s villa in Praia da Luz

This cliff was later one of the places where Kate and Gerry McCann went jogging to ease their angst as they waited for news of Madeleine.

Freud often chronicled his summer exploits in Praia da Luz in his weekly column for The Times; and given how he chose to befriend the McCanns, we might find these jottings quite pertinent. While he waxed lyrical about his herb garden and citrus groves, which provided ingredients for his favourite Mediterranean recipes, and we learnt that he played golf and boules, he wrote little about the company he kept.

In fact, the only people he mentioned were his Portuguese ‘Maria’ — the maid who came each day to wash, clean and iron — and his secateurs-wielding gardener, Alfredo.

Was this perhaps because Freud didn’t want anyone to know about the dark company he kept?

After all, as the Madeleine inquiry revealed, the western Algarve, with its bucket-and-spade resorts, wide-open verandas and patios, and laid-back security, had become a teeming hive of paedophile activity.

One investigator said he knew of 38 child sex abusers living in the area; and between 2005 and 2009, the children of seven holidaying families were reportedly subjected to sex attacks — five before three-year-old Madeleine was taken from Apartment 5A at the Ocean Club, and two afterwards.

The names of paedophiles and suspected paedophiles based in Praia da Luz or nearby towns when Freud was a regular visitor are too many to mention. They include serial sex offender Raymond Hewlett, a Briton who was living on the Algarve with his wife and six children in May 2007, and became a prime suspect shortly before dying of throat cancer, aged 64, four years ago.

Another Briton, Chris Ridout, worked as a DJ in his parents’ pub, the Plough and Harrow, 200 yards from the Ocean Club. He was forced to flee the resort shortly before Madeleine disappeared, after he was alleged to be bombarding a 12-year-old local girl with lewd texts and indecent images. He is now thought to be living in the United States.

Ridout doesn’t have any convictions and says he was unfairly hounded after death threats.

Freud is said to have drunk on occasion in the Ridouts’ pub, which locals dubbed ‘The Plough and Paedo’ (daubing its new name in huge letters on the wall). Could it be that the knight of the realm (Clement Freud)  was secretly consorting with loathsome men such as Hewlett?

Of course, Mrs Haynes and the three other women who have come forward in recent days to describe being assaulted by Freud were far older than Madeleine when he forced himself on them, and paedophiles typically choose their victims from a narrow age bracket.

Yet, as one expert told me, they also tend to gravitate towards others who share their proclivities, regardless of the type of victims they prefer.

Freud retained the five-bedroom villa, Casa da Colina, with its shaded pool, sunken terrace and pastoral tiles, until 2002, when he sold it to the current owner, Andrew Wright.

However, Mr Wright, from Devon, who now rents the property for £2,470 a week in high season, continued to make it available to Freud until he died. Intriguingly, he revealed that he had been contacted by Operation Grange detectives ‘about two years ago’, when he confirmed ownership of the villa.

This could suggest the Met squad hadn’t completely ignored the email sent by Mason Haynes after all.

The case is also being reviewed by a fresh team of Portuguese police officers based in Porto, in the north of the country. Yesterday, a source in the unit said they would look into the possible involvement of Freud — who was not mentioned once in the original 11,000-page case file.

‘This person [Freud] was never under investigation during the case, not even under British formal request,’ said the source. ‘This new information will be considered in the review we are now undertaking.’

And so to Madeleine’s disappearance. What evidence is there to suggest Freud might have been involved, however tangentially?

Thus far, the Freud family’s only comment has come from his son Matthew, a high-powered PR. Between expletives, he told a Mail reporter his father had been in Britain on May 3, 2007, the night she was abducted from her bed as her parents ate a tapas supper with friends in a nearby restaurant.

His assertion appears to be supported by the fact that Freud’s horse-racing column for the Sun was published two days later, on May 5.

By early July he was once again installed in Praia da Luz. As Kate McCann recalls in her book, at the beginning of that month they received a cryptic letter at their lodgings near the Ocean Club.

‘Dear McCanns,’ it began. ‘I have a house in P da L, been ashamed of the intrusion into your lives by our media . . . and if you would care to come to lunch/dinner at any time before Wednesday next, do ring and let me know.’

Doubtless sure of his culinary renown, he signed off with a droll aside: ‘I cook decent meals.’ Ironically, however, Kate and Gerry could barely remember who he was, and had to be reminded. Even so, they were touched by Freud’s gesture of ‘kindness and friendship’ (it came at a time when the tide of public opinion was turning against them, and they were falling under the unwarranted suspicion of the Portuguese police) and duly accepted his invitation.

Yet this week, when I asked several key players in the McCann saga what they made of Freud’s decision to place himself at the centre of the circus surrounding Madeleine’s disappearance, they said they found it odd, to say the least.

For Freud was an obsessively private man who always kept himself apart from the English ex-pats in the resort, and he is not remembered for his neighbourly gestures.

Residents described him as ‘reclusive’ and ‘aloof’, but most could barely recall seeing him at all. Was this frigid man really so moved by the McCanns’ plight? Or, as Mason Haynes ponders, was his gesture motivated by sinister self-interest?

‘I’d like to know what he had to gain by the meeting,’ he said.

The McCanns attended the luncheon accompanied by Gerry’s sister, Trisha Cameron, and her husband Sandy, and their then PR adviser Justine McGuinness, a former Liberal-Democrat parliamentary candidate. Though McGuinness and Freud had a political affinity, I am assured that the pair had never previously met and she did not fix the meeting.

McCann watchers suggest, however, that some part might have been played by Clarence Mitchell, who briefly handled the couple’s PR before McGuinness and would become their mouthpiece after she quit the role.

This is because Mitchell entered into a consultancy contract with Matthew Freud’s company a few months later. From his office in Brighton this week, Mitchell insisted this was a coincidence.

As Kate describes colourfully in her book, the lunch was an odd affair. Freud’s opening gambit was to offer his guests shots of strawberry vodka, though it was only just midday. He then prepared them, as Kate recalled, a ‘bloody marvellous’ watercress salad followed by mushroom risotto — ‘the best we’ve ever tasted’ — and regaled them with his trademark wit.

It might easily be construed as an innocuous occasion — until we remember that Freud took pleasure in cooking an elaborate meal for at least one of his victims (for whom he prepared a gourmet omelette) before thrusting himself on her.

Shortly after the lunch, eaten alfresco on the terrace, Freud returned to Britain but remained in touch with the McCanns by email, as Kate recounts. The Operation Grange team will no doubt wish to examine these exchanges, which might with hindsight prove telling.

He returned to Portugal on August 31, whereupon — again weirdly, we might think — he phoned Gerry McCann. Freud cracked a lame joke which compared what he said was his ‘poor circulation’ to that of the ailing Daily Express.

A few days later, when Kate and Gerry were in turmoil after being made arguidos, or suspects, by the Portuguese police, Freud invited them to his home again; this time at 9.50pm. Greeting them in his nightshirt, he offered them brandy and made another dry quip.

So, Kate, which of the devout Catholic, alcoholic, depressed, nymphomaniac parts is correct?’ he inquired, referring to the plethora of newspaper stories speculating on her character and parlous state of mind.

When the couple told Freud how sniffer dogs were supposed to have detected signs that someone had died in their apartment, he replied laconically: ‘So what are they going to do? Put them on the stand? One bark for yes, two for no?’

To Kate, who could have no idea about the kind of man they were consorting with, this was just the tonic she needed: Freud’s ‘way of making everything seem a little less terrible’.

According to Clarence Mitchell, she and her husband were ‘shocked and appalled’ when they learnt the truth about him a few days ago. Yet, on the basis of all they know so far, he says they ‘can see no reason to believe’ he may have had knowledge of Madeleine’s disappearance.

Those who remember Freud not as an avuncular shoulder to lean on but as a callous predator hold a different opinion. Now it is for the depleted Operation Grange squad to determine whether the clue they desperately need lies buried in the vile past of a great English eccentric.

SHEREE DODD (PR Spokesperson)

First to arrive in Portugal was a former Mirror journalist and long-term government spokesperson called Sheree Dodd. In an unprecedented move, the Government took over news-handling on behalf of the McCanns. Sheree Dodd, a former Daily Mirror journalist and long-serving senior spokeswoman for the Government, was dispatched to Portugal. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office announced that she was being deployed as “press officer responsible to act as media liaison officer for the McCann family”. Sheree Dodd was formerly Director of Communications at the Department for Trade and Industry where she had responsibility for media handling, stakeholder relations, marketing and e-communications. Prior to that post she led the news and media relations operations at the Department for Work and Pensions and the Northern Ireland Office. Before joining government communications she enjoyed an extensive career as a political and industrial correspondent on The Mirror newspaper. Sheree is Managing Director of which provides advice and delivers communication solutions to a wide range of public and private sector clients. But Dodd was swiftly replaced by the more senior and bombastic figure of Clarence Mitchell, who took a pro-active role, orchestrating a visit to meet the Pope and a tour which took in Spain, Germany and Morocco.

As a heterosexual ebephile sexually interested in grooming and molesting females aged 10+ Freud was particularly susceptible to pressure had it been known he’d moved a young girl he was sexually abusing from the age of 10 into his house as an au pair to his children.

Philip Edmonds – nephew of Margaret Hodge and cousin of BBC’s Lizzie Watson

…brief exchange of letters with Philip Edmonds, a Mark Warner guest who was present in Praia da Luz the same week as the McCanns and the Tapas 7.

To settle some outstanding queries about my correspondence and the background to it, I will reproduce my letter to him dated 22 July 2011, which was sent by post to the offices of STEMCOR in London and Switzerland, and his email back to me dated 16 August 2011.

Here are the salient facts:

1 Philip Edmonds took his three sons, aged 6, 7 and 8 on holiday with him to Praia da Luz for the week 28 April to 5 May 207. I believe it was also booked via Mark Warner. It is thought he may have been separated or divorced from his wife at this time.

2 He is a member of the extremely wealthy Oppenheimer family, as is his aunt, the controversial Labour Party grandee Lady Margaret Hodge, who was the Chairman of the Islington Council Social Services Committee at the height of the Islington Children’s Homes child abuse scandal.

3 Philip Edmonds is a member of the Oppenheimer family because his father married Hannah, the elders  of five children of the Hans Oppeneimer.

4 At the time of his Praia da Luz holiday, Edmonds was (and I believe still is) a Director of one of the world’s biggest steel companies, STEMCOR, and its Deputy Chairman.

5 He became of interest to Madeleine McCann forums because a newspaper report that said that Madeleine had been photographed with his three children in the play area of the Ocean Club on Thursday 3 May 2007, the day Madeleine was reported missing. It was one of the many alleged ‘proofs’ that Madeleine was alive that day.

6 We discussed it on the forum in early 2011. Nobody on the forum could explain why this alleged photograph of Madeleine had ever been produced, especially as we don’t have any other photo of her definitely taken after Sunday 29 April. So I wrote to Philip Edmonds: here is my letter and his reply:

Dear Mr Edmonds,

re: Madeleine McCann

I have been researching the Madeleine McCann case in depth since September 2007, from the point of view of someone who is sceptical about the parents’ account of events.

I have obtained your name and details simply by examining many of the thousands of documents about the case released by the Portuguese Police and made public during 2008, which include lists of guests staying at the Ocean Club and/or with Mark Warners during the week the McCanns were there, 28 April to 5 May 2007. There is also amongst the documents released by the police a statement by a Stephen Carpenter, who now lives in Stevenage, who says that he spoke to a man who had taken three young boys with him on the evening Madeleine disappeared, and by a process of elimination we believe that must be you, as you are the only guest with three boys recorded as being present that week.

One matter I have looked at especially, and have written about, is the controversial nature of many of the reported ‘sightings’ of Madeleine McCann on Thursday 3 May, the day she was reported missing. One of many curious features about the case is that only two photographs of Madeleine at Praia da Luz that week have ever surfaced. One was a photo of her playing tennis sometime earlier in the week, apparently taken by another parent. The other is the famous ‘last photo’ taken by Dr Kate McCann, one that was not produced for the public to see until after Dr Gerald McCann returned to England for a short visit in late May.

I have posted analyses on publicly-viewable forums querying the eight claimed ‘sightings’ of Madeleine on 3 May 2007. Clearly any photos of Madeleine alive on that day (or indeed on any other days of the week) would serve to dispel the doubts myself and others have entertained about the events of 3 May.

I am wondering therefore if you would kindly be able to tell me whether you or any member of your family had any contact with the McCanns and their children on Thursday 3 May, and also whether you have any photographs of Madeleine taken on that specific day.

I understand from the released files that you were living in Switzerland at the time Madeleine was reported missing but you may now be living in the U.K., hence I have sent this letter to Stemcor/Uldy Street SA both in Switzerland and in London.

I hope you may be able to help and look forward to hearing from you.

My contact details are above.

Yours sincerely,

Anthony Bennett

Dear Mr Bennett,

I am in receipt of your letter of 22 July regarding Madeleine McCann. I am sure you would appreciate that it would not be appropriate for me to comment too much, as we do not know each other, and I have no idea what your connection to the case is. However, I would also not want further conspiracy theories to fester by simply ignoring your letter.

Therefore, I can confirm that whatever information I had (including some photos of my sons taken on the day Madeleine disappeared, which showed her in the background) was passed both to the police and to the McCanns at the time. Having been in Portugal at the time of Madeleine’s disappearance and seen all of the events first hand, there is not one shred of doubt in my mind that the events as reported were correct. In fact one of the most terrible parts of this tragedy is that there are people out there who are questioning this, just adding further to the nightmare that the McCann family have suffered. I cannot imagine anything crueller.

I’m afraid I won’t enter into further correspondence on this matter with you.

Yours sincerely,

Philip Edmonds

Yes, I wrote to by hard copy & email to ‘s offices in & Switzerland. He replied by email. He claimed that Maddie was seen in a photo he took of his three boys on Thur 3 May. BUT neither PE, the McCanns or the has ever produced this photo

Philip Edmonds was at Praia da Luz in Portugal when Madeleine McCann disappeared. 
Philip Edmonds is the nephew of Margaret Hodge.

The claimed abduction is not the only thing that could have happened. Cholic. Vomiting. Sore nappies. Coughing. Choking. Bad dreams. Overheating. All kinds of thing can distress children. So far as I can judge, it is not that I am weird in my own views, rather it is absolutely accepted in British society that you do not leave 1 year olds without care of an adult.
Why are the McCanns an exception?
Which leads me on to the question of why they received such exceptional treatment from British authorities, directed straight from No. 10, to the extent that Blair and Brown eventually gave them a PR representative?

Politicians Tony Blair and David Cameron appointed Clement Freud’s son, Matthew Freud, to take over management of media coverage of the .. McCanns’ sleazy “spokesman”, Clarence Mitchell, works for Freud’s son Matthew, the coincidences do add up.

Henry Hodge, the husband of Margaret Hodge, leader of Islington Council and resident of Islington, was chairman of the NCCL when PIE was granted affiliate status.

NCCL supported the ‘right’ to sleep with children as a ‘civil liberty’!NCCL supported the ‘right’ to sleep with children as a ‘civil liberty’!

The ‘right’ to sleep with children was one ‘civil liberty’ that NCCL supported

The Seventies was an era of sudden sexual emancipation. To some on the Left, sex with children was just another boundary to be swept away

Harriet Harman with her husband Jack Dromey after her victory in the Peckham by-election in 1982

Harriet Harman with her husband Jack Dromey
In 1975, NCCL had granted PIE official “affiliate” status. It put O’Carroll on one of its working groups, it made him a platform speaker at an NCCL conference in spring 1977, and it strongly defended paedophiles against “hysterical and inaccurate” newspaper attacks.

…The book, a manifesto for the legalisation of sex with children, is called Paedophilia: The Radical Case. O’Carroll was a teacher, and the “raven-haired little charmer” was one of his pupils, an 11-year-old schoolboy called Chris. Uncle Herman was in his fifties, and the girl he had sex with was 12.

But most unusually of all, O’Carroll’s foreword, with its passionate plea not to “deny children their sexual life, including the possibility of sexual contact with adults”, expresses his “heartfelt thanks” to those who helped him write his rallying-call, “especially… Ms Nettie Pollard of the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) [who] read the whole text in draft and made many helpful suggestions”.

O’Carroll had been a “sexually predatory” paedophile, “determined to find a boy, or boys, for what I assured myself would be mutually pleasurable and affectionate sex… All I had to do was pop out to the nearest canal bank, or swimming baths, or park.” After this didn’t work, he “rained letters” on Chris, then turned up on the child’s doorstep “emboldened by drink, and aggressive with it”. O’Carroll was any parent’s darkest nightmare.

at the time this book was published, in 1980, O’Carroll and the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) – a body founded to openly lobby for child sex – were part of NCCL, now Liberty, Britain’s foremost mainstream civil rights organisation.

For most of the Seventies and early Eighties, the “right” to sleep with children was one of the “civil liberties” that NCCL supported and the policy differences with PIE were ones only of degree. PIE favoured lowering the age of sexual consent broadly to four.

Harriet Harman once said Margaret Hodge was her best friend in Parliament.

Discarded spouses: Margaret Hodges’ ex-husband is married to Jack Straw’s first wife!

Keep it in the family: Joe Caluori, Margaret Hodge’s son-in-law was supposed to head Islington abuse investigation!

April 26 2013

His place in the cabinet will be taken by Joe Caluori, councillor for Mildmay ward. Cllr Caluori recently married Margaret Hodge’s daughter at the Town Hall and works for a consultancy called Britain Thinks.
On the advisory board: Daniel Finkelstein
Margaret Hodge is a director of The Social Market Foundation along with Daniel Finkelstein and Samuel Brittan (Leon Brittan’s brother).
Directors: Daniel Finkelstein, Greville Janner, Nathanial Rothschild and Edgar Bronfman (son listed in paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s black book and daughter Clare Bronfman arrested, involved with NXIVM sex trafficking cult)

So as chairman of NCCL, was Hodge’s hubby also PIE member? And what does Vaz know about PIE membership?

Then began the parade. One after another at Einhorn’s bail hearing, his supporters took the stand in his defense. A minister, a corporate lawyer, a playwright, an economist, a telephone-company executive. They couldn’t imagine Einhorn’s harming any living thing. Release of murder defendants pending trial was unheard of, but Einhorn’s attorney was soon-to-be U.S. senator Arlen Specter, and bail was set at a staggeringly low $40,000 — only $4,000 of it needed to walk free. It was paid by Barbara Bronfman, a Montreal socialite who had married into the Seagram distillery family and met Einhorn through a common interest in the paranormal. It was Einhorn’s new rage, and his orbit of friends had expanded to include Uri Geller, the spoon-bending Israeli illusionist.

Henry Hodge was close friends with Chris Patten and Howard Marks, who ran Annabelinda, a boutique which ostensibly sold clothing but in fact peddled marijuana.  His old Oxford friend, Henry Hodge, did the legal stuff in establishing Annabelinda Ltd.

Chris Patten and Henry Hodge were friends

‘If Sandy Marks did hold those views, I was not aware of them’. I see no paedophiles, said Margaret Hodge as she raised her telescope to her blind eye!


Guess who got the special honour of delivering the Law Society’s first Henry Hodge Memorial Lecture:

Margaret Hodge and her best mate Harriet Harman: two peas in a pod:

Harriet Harman tells ‘revolting’ anti-Semitic joke on live TV

Harriet Harman tells ‘revolting’ anti-Semitic joke on live TV

What a trio…what a coincidence. All three have links with paedophiles: Butler-Sloss, Harriet Harman and Margaret Hodge!

Margaret Hodge chose the words of her ‘advisors’ over two upright social workers from the coalface. Was her Islington successor Sawyer one of those advisors? The man who was business partner to this the paedophile Mr. Slade?



Clement Freud is the brother Lucian Freud, a very close friend of the Kray twins, who ran child abuse rings for top people.

Clement Freud shared an office with Sir Cyril Smith, a top child abuser.
Freud was a friend of Gordon Brown, the former prime minister.
Various top people have been attracted to the Algarve – European royal families, Cliff Richard, Tony Blair, David Cameron, the Beckhams, Jose manuel Barroso, Ronaldo, …

Before the Madeleine McCann story broke, the McCanns were not important people.

If there had been no involvement by any high powered pedophile ring, then the Madeleine story would have had had little impact.

But, MI5 and a whole host of other agencies were observed taking an interest in the case.

Margaret Hodge and Unilever –
the Zionists’ favourite consumer goods company
Margaret was a councillor on Islington Borough Council from 1973-1994, serving at its Deputy Leader in 1981, its Leader from 1982-1992, and finally departing the Council in 1994.
Prior to overseeing the Islington Child Abuse Scandal, Margaret worked at Unilever as an economist (1966-1973). Unilever is also closely associated with the late prolific paedophile Leon Brittan and Leon’s corrupt cousin, Malcolm Rifkind. Unilever is additionally associated with Conservative Zionist (Friends of Israel) Anne Widdecombe, who, interestingly, worked for Unilever at around the same time as Dame Margaret (1973-1975 in Widdecombe’s case).
At Unilever, cousins Leon Brittan and Malcolm Rifkind ‘took turns’ as non executive directors: serving, in the case of Brittan, from May 2004 (or 2000: sources differ) to May 2010; and in Rifkind’s case from May 2010 until April 2015.
Why did Cousin Leon pass the Unilever baton to Cousin Malcolm in May 2010? Well, perhaps because Cousin Leon was readying his affairs for his “premature death from cancer” a few years later (in January 2015): a ‘convenient’ turn of events that enabled him to evade criminal prosecution for paedophile offences.
What else happened to Cousin Malcom in 2010? Why, in July of that year – a mere two months after receiving the Unilever baton from Cousin Leon – Rifkind was appointed Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (by David Cameron). Thus, in the few years remaining before Cousin Leon’s premature death, Cousin Malcolm was perfectly placed to monitor – and when necessary, quash – incriminating materials held on his cousin by the Intelligence community.
For Rifkind, re-elected to the Unilever board in 2014, the good times only ended when a Channel Four Dispatches sting in 2015 compelled his resignation from said board. (The same sting also snared another of Margaret Hodge’s corrupt fellow Zionists: the Muslim scourge and extraordinary rendition and torture collaborator, Jack Straw, who was Hodge’s deputy at Islington Borough Council).
Whether Rifkind still holds his 1,500 shares in Unilever is unknown, but Margaret Hodge’s favourite consumer goods company continues to enrich the world in other ways.
For, you see, Unilever sponsors the annual One Young World summit for children’s causes – whose regular speakers include Bob Geldof, Sir Richard Branson and Lord Michael Hastings.
Hastings has been a director at the Crime Concern Trust with Margaret Hodge’s former Islington Labour colleagues Stephen Twigg (Twigg went on to become Hodge’s parliamentary researcher and is a former chair of Labour Friends of Israel) and Derek Sawyer, the lifelong friend and business partner of the career paedophile, reputed paedophile ring member, fraudster and sadist Derek Slade, who was sentenced in 2010 to a 21-year prison sentence
Dame Margaret’s second husband, the late Sir Henry Hodge, was a member of the executive of the National Council for Civil Liberties when it was affiliated with PIE (the Paedophile Information Exchange). PIE encouraged paedophiles to patronise the Elm Guest House, a child brothel supplied from the Grafton Close children’s home overseen by Richmond Council where Keith Vaz worked until he left to join Margaret Hodge at Islington Borough Council.
Those who have worked at or for Islington Council include:
  1. Margaret Hodge
  2. Keith Vaz
  3. Nicholas Rabet (who took children on unauthorised trips to the child abuse island of Jersey)
  4. Jack Straw
  5. Joe Caluori, Margaret Hodge’s son in law
  6. Sandy Marks (the former Chair of Islington Social Services Committee and Mayor, now being investigated for links to the Fallen Angels group of pro-paedophile activists)
  7. Stephen Twigg (also a former director at the Crime Concern Trust – see above)
  8. Derek Sawyer (also a former director at the Crime Concern Trust – see above)
Margaret nowadays spends much of her time conspiring to depose Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn in cahoots with Ann Coffey, the turncoat MP who defected from Labour to Change UK, an apparent front organisation for the UK Israeli embassy.
The Change UK group of MPs was conceived by Mandelson/Blair/Hodge and their acolytes for essentially the same reason the original New Labour project was devised 30 years ago (by the original conspirators’ quintet of Mandelson/Blair/Margaret Hodge/Henry Hodge/Lord Levy): to serve the globalist oligarchy’s interests, including the success of a Greater Israel.
Ann Coffey has previously employed Margaret Hodge’s son in law, Joe Caluori, as a parliamentary or research assistant (see 29 September 2015 Register of MPs’ interests). Just friends helping friends.
Andrew Watson – Margaret’s first husband


Margaret married her first husband, Andrew Watson, in 1968. Dame Margaret and Andrew Watson divorced in 1978 and she married her second husband, Henry Hodge, later that year.
Whilst a “Watson”, Margaret reportedly undertook a placement at St Leonard’s children’s home in Hornchurch, where it is said that a “very organised” paedophile ring operated. (Another source has identified Alan Prescott, a then Labour Councillor, as among the abusers).
In an astonishing twist, following his divorce from Margaret Hodge, Andrew Watson then married Jack Straw’s first wife, a teacher named Anthea (whose divorce from Jack Straw had taken place in 1977).
Margaret Hodge’s other relations include:
Her only son: Nick Watson


(with her first husband, the economist Andrew Watson)
Dame Margaret’s only son, Nick Watson, is a director at Stemcor. Nick Watson was married to the late Rachel Watson.
“While out running” in Leeds in 2017, Rachel, 34, was struck by a car and killed. The driver was a police community support officer named Alexander L’Amie. The forensic collision investigator could not think of an explanation to account for Margaret’s daughter in law making the bizarre decision to enter a dual carriageway into the path of L’Amie’s car travelling at 60-65 mph.
Like Nick Watson, Dame Margaret’s nephew, Philip Martin Edmonds, also works at the Hodge-Oppenheimer family business: Edmonds is Stemcor’s deputy chairman.
Philip Edmonds was visiting Portugal’s Praia da Luz resort at just the same time Madeleine McCann was abducted – only to abruptly fly out within hours of the news of Madeleine’s disappearance. Mr Edmonds is a person of significant interest to those following the ongoing McCann investigations. What does Margaret’s family know about about Madeleine’s disappearance?
3 daughters: Lizzi Watson, Amy Hodge, and Anna Bedu
Dame Margaret’s daughter Lizzi Watson (with her first husband, Andrew Watson) was formerly the chairman of Labour Students; she now works for the BBC.
In 2018 Lizzi Watson was promoted to Deputy Editor of the BBC’s flagship six and ten news programmes. She was previously Head of News, BBC Asian Network, and Executive Producer, Newsnight.
Dame Margaret’s daughter Amy Hodge (with her second husband, Sir Henry Hodge) produces Brexit Shorts for the Guardian, and is Associate Director at Headlong touring theatre company.
Amy Hodge is married to Joseph Thomas (‘Joe’) Caluori, the current Islington Labour councillor who served for nearly six years as the Executive/Lead Member for Children, Young People and Families, until stepping down in February 2019 to take up the senior post of Deputy Director at The Smith Institute. The Smith Institute is funded by reputed spy Geoffrey Robinson MP who previously served in the UK Army’s Intelligence Corps. Robinson made millions from business deals involving Robert Maxwell, the late Mossad spy and father of Ghislaine Maxwell, the former Madam in Jeffrey Epstein’s international VIP paedophilia and child trafficking empire. 
Joe Caluori may also be quite unaware that the MP (Geoffrey Robinson) who funds his new employer (The Smith Institute) was reportedly a regular visitor to the infamous Dolphin Square, albeit in the context of meetings with his alleged spy handler, Karel Pravek. Whether Mr Robinson also conducted any other ‘business’ at Dolphin Square is unknown.
The name Dolphin Square will surely ring a bell with Margaret’s son-in-law, however: Mr Caluori lists “child criminal exploitation” among his “policy interests” on The Smith Institute’s website. Child criminal exploitation is certainly a policy area in which Caluori and his mother-in-law have amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience while serving the borough of Islington. Undoubtedly, Caluori now wishes to share his expertise in “child criminal exploitation” with a wider electorate under the patronage of kindly Mr Robinson.
In addition to The Smith Institute, Joe Caluori has worked for the consultancy Britainthinks, linked to Lord Daniel (‘Danny’) Finkelstein, the newspaperman and peer who spoke in nauseatingly flattering terms of his Zionist compadre, Greville Janner, both before and after the serial paedophile’s ostensible “death from complications of Alzheimer’s disease”.
Dame Margaret’s daughter Anna Bedu (also with her second husband, Sir Henry Hodge) works for Tower Hamlets Borough Council as an Extended Day Adviser, advising on extended day provision for children and young people. 
Anna has been a trustee of the Orp Foundation, which makes grants in the areas of Environment, Education, and Human Rights; current trustees include Joe Caluori (see above), Sarah Oppenheimer and Sue OppenheimerQuite possibly Sarah Oppenheimer and Sue Oppenheimer are related to Anna and Dame Margaret herself, whose maiden name was Oppenheimer.

Anna lives in Islington with husband Nicholas ‘Nick’/’Nicky’ Bedu, a film and television producer and the co-founder of Fully Focused, a youth media and mentoring company.

Ronnie Kray’s letter of praise for Cliff Richard

He writes from Brixton prison to biographer John Pearson: “I had a verry nice letter from Cliff Ritchards. It was marvoulas of him.”

Lucian Freud (brother of Clement Freud ) was well connected to the Kray brothers,

Both Lucian Freud and Litvinoff were well acquainted with the Krays. The artist often gambled at Esmeralda’s Barn, the brothers’ Knightsbridge club, and dined with them on a regular basis; Litvinoff, who grew up in London’s East End, allegedly procured young men for Ronnie Kray.

Why on earth put a 100yr block on alleged abduction of Madeleine McCann if  authorities not hiding something big?

Why did this 82-year-old man befriend the McCanns out of the blue? The Freud I knew wouldn’t engage with you unless he really wanted to. Why did he invite them round and cook for them? Why, after their long search, did he stay in touch with them?

‘Could it be he wanted to know the ins and outs of what was going on, and the only way he could do that was by having direct contact with the parents?’

Vicky reported Freud’s abuse to the NSPCC, who contacted Operation Yewtree, the police investigation into sexual allegations sparked by Jimmy Savile — but Vicky says an ‘awful policewoman’ told her: ‘This happened years ago. He’s dead now. What do you want me to do about it?’

Two years later she tried again, after hearing yet another desperate appeal for information from Kate McCann.

Somerset police passed her allegations to the force in Suffolk, where the incident had taken place, and Vicky was told the matter would be passed to the team involved with Madeleine’s disappearance. But, again, Freud wasn’t investigated.

Maddie: Did the BBC bend the truth?

On the night Madeleine McCann disappeared, an Irish tourist saw a man with a child matching her description near the McCann apartment. His testimony could prove vital to the world’s most famous missing person case, especially since the man he saw that night has never come forward

On a cold May night in 2007, Martin Smith and his family were walking home after an evening out in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz. A retired businessman from Drogheda, Co Louth, he co-owned an apartment there and was a regular visitor to the Algarve town.

The crowds of summer had yet to arrive and the normally bustling streets of the old quarter lay quiet. It was approaching 10pm when some members of the family of nine were suddenly struck by the sight of a man walking quickly towards them holding a small child uncomfortably in his arms.

As he passed close by them on the narrow street, the child appeared to be in a deep sleep, her head placed over his shoulder and arms suspended down her body.

She was blonde, aged around four and wearing pyjamas. Despite the chill in the air, her feet were bare. Martin and his daughter Aoife noted that her skin was very white. The man carrying the girl was middle-aged and more formally dressed than the average tourist, in beige trousers and a dark blazer-like top.

A member of Martin’s family made a comment towards him that the child was sleeping but he did not respond or make eye contact, keeping his head down as he hurriedly headed in the direction of the coast.

At the time, Martin did not realise the sighting had the potential to change the course of the world’s most high-profile missing-person case.

The following morning, he got a text from his daughter in Ireland to tell him that a three-year old girl had gone missing in the resort. The approximate time frame and location he had witnessed the man and child appeared to match.

By now, the mystery of what happened to Madeleine McCann was beginning to grip the world. Martin brought his mind back to the evening before and wondered if the child he saw could have been her. The girl certainly matched Madeleine’s description and the sighting had taken place at Rua da Escola Primaria, just 500 yards from the McCanns’ apartment. In time, Martin would become convinced he was correct.

Over a decade has passed since Madeleine McCann went missing on May 3, 2007 yet the case of the British three-year-old remains mired in more questions than answers. The mainstream media, who have by and large backed Gerry and Kate McCann’s version of events with the support of several A-list celebrities and politicians, appear to have lost interest in a story they once could not get enough of.

The very opposite is true on social media. The internet swirls with allegations and theories that the McCann story is littered with holes and does not stack up. Countless videos have been posted on YouTube by armchair detectives challenging the parents’ seemingly at times bizarre behaviour, in particular their reactions in certain interviews when the finger of blame shifts towards them.

Some are compelling to watch and have highlighted what appear to be discrepancies and confusion in certain accounts given by the McCanns and some of their friends about what happened in the period before and after Madeleine disappeared.

“It was like watching an action replay”

Gerry McCann, a consultant cardiologist from Scotland, and his Liverpool wife Kate, a GP and anaesthetist, said they had put their daughter and two-year-old twins Sean and Amelie to bed at around 7pm, had drinks together for almost an hour and then left the children alone to go to a tapas bar 50 yards from their apartment. There they met seven friends with whom they were on holiday. They told police that they and their friends checked on the children every half hour.

Gerry said he went to the apartment at 9.05pm and all the children were sleeping soundly. He said Madeleine was lying on her left-hand side in exactly the same position she was in when they had left her.

At 9.25pm, his friend, Dr Matthew Oldfield told police he went to check on the McCann children. He said afterwards he could not be certain that he saw Madeleine on that check.

Kate McCann said she went back to the apartment at around 10pm, entering through the patio doors that they had left unlocked. She said she noticed that the door of the children’s bedroom was “completely open” and that the window was also open and the shutters raised. She said she scoured the apartment, then left the twins asleep in their beds before running back to her friends in the tapas bar and claiming Madeleine had been taken. At 10.41pm, her disappearance from Apartment 5A of the Ocean Club resort was reported to police by hotel staff.

Overnight the story made headlines around the world. Several days after Madeleine disappeared, the Smith family flew back home, but the sighting remained at the back of Martin’s mind. He discussed it with his wife Mary, son Peter and daughter Aoife who were with him that night.

When they tallied the time and location, and the fact that the man they had seen had come from the direction of the Ocean Club complex where the McCanns were staying, they were convinced that it could have been Madeleine they had seen.

They decided to inform investigating police, and at the end of May 2007, Martin, Aoife and Peter flew back out to Portugal to make statements. They gave similar accounts of the man they had witnessed: average build, short brown hair, beige trousers; and the child: blonde, around four, and wearing pyjamas.

As the summer passed, the mystery of what happened to Madeleine McCann continued to perplex the world but life returned to normal for the Smiths. Then one Sunday evening in September, it came back to haunt Martin again. He was sitting at home watching TV when a report came on the BBC ‘News at Ten’ about the McCanns’ return to Britain. As he watched Gerry coming down the steps of the plane, carrying his two-year-old son in his arms, Martin was gripped by what he had just seen and described the experience as watching “an action replay” in his mind.

He was instantly brought back to the night of May 3 in Praia da Luz. Something about the way Gerry was holding the child in his arms and the way he put his head down seemed shockingly similar to the man he had seen in Portugal the night Madeleine went missing. He said it hit him like a “bolt from the blue”. He watched the clip again on different news channels reinforcing his belief that he was not mistaken.

During this period, Martin had difficulty sleeping and felt sick with anxiety. He contacted the Garda and informed them of what had happened.

He told them he was 60-80% sure the man he saw carrying the child that night was Gerry McCann. His wife Mary felt the same way.

Irish officers found him credible. A local garda who interviewed him on behalf of the Portuguese authorities described him as a genuine, decent man who did not want to court the press or seek publicity.

But while Martin’s evidence seemed compelling, independent and without motivation, much to his frustration, it was not given the attention it seemed to deserve.

Almost a year after he made his initial statement to police, he was approached by private detectives working for the McCanns and asked to make e-fits (electronic facial identification images), of the man he had seen the night Madeleine disappeared.

The McCanns say they gave these pictures to the police at the time but chose not to publicise them. Instead they remained focused on another sighting by their friend Jane Tanner, one of the so-called Tapas Seven group of friends who had been on holiday with the couple and who dined with them the evening Madeleine disappeared.

She claimed to have seen a man carrying a child away from their apartment complex at around 9.20pm, but in the opposite direction to the man allegedly seen by the Smiths.

The picture of Gerry McCann that caused Martin Smith to have a flashback which has haunted him for years

However, more than six years later, in 2013, the Metropolitan police announced that a British tourist had come forward to say he could have been the man she had seen as he carried his daughter home from the Ocean Club late night creche.

The Tanner sighting was about to be dismissed. The Met would switch their attention to the man seen by the Smiths. The e-fit images were finally released and the then chief investigating officer Andy Redwood said the timeline leading up to Madeleine’s disappearance was being rewritten, especially the 90 minutes between 8.30pm, when the McCanns left their children to go to the restaurant and 10pm, when they discovered their daughter missing.

A reward of £20,000 was offered to anyone who could assist with the investigation. But then the story of the Smith sighting took another bizarre twist as allegations emerged in the media that the family had retracted their statements. The public were being told that this potentially critical development was just another red herring.

The BBC even went as far as to make this claim. In a ‘Panorama’ programme broadcast in May 2017 to mark the tenth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance, presenter Richard Bilton told viewers that the Smiths had changed their mind about seeing Gerry McCann and now believed they had seen someone else.

In recent weeks, I have spoken to Martin Smith at his home in Drogheda. He told me he continues to stand by everything he said to police in 2007. At no point did he withdraw his statement or change his mind about the sighting.

An e-fit image of the ‘Smith man’ who has never come forward

He is frustrated by media claims that he now says he was mistaken; and remains “60-80 per cent” convinced that the man he saw that night was Gerry McCann.

After the BBC programme was broadcast, Martin contacted ‘Panorama’ and informed them of their inaccuracy. But the broadcaster failed to correct the record despite its public service remit.

Last month, I asked the BBC why they had wrongly suggested the Smith sighting had been withdrawn and if they were willing to correct their error at this late stage.

I received a reply acknowledging that they had indeed broadcast an inaccuracy. They agreed to update the ‘Panorama’ programme on their iPlayer to reflect the correction. They say the mistake was made in good faith but they have failed to explain how they came to make such a fundamental error and why they did not check if their story about the Smiths was correct before they aired the programme.

Former Scotland Yard murder detective Colin Sutton is one of a number of experienced officers who believe the Smith sighting is one of the most important pieces of evidence available to the investigation.

According to media reports, Sutton had been tipped to head up the new probe by British police in 2010. He claims he received a call shortly after these reports from a high-ranking friend in the Met who warned him not to take on the job as he would not be happy being told what he could and could not look at.

Several aspects of the new investigation perplex him including the apparent decision by Operation Grange not to question Gerry and Kate McCann or their friends again.

“Looking at the background to the whole case again, inconvenient suggestions like the Smith sightings, have been dismissed on a number of occasions”, he says:

“When someone comes forward like that, it must be taken very seriously. It wasn’t just a throwaway phone call. It was something quite specific. The fact that Mr Smith’s memory was triggered by seeing Gerry Mc Cann carrying the child down the steps of the plane is quite relevant because I think that is how the mind works. It is a trigger I would take quite seriously.”

“I can see no reason why Martin Smith would make up these claims. He has nothing to gain from doing so”.


Operation Grange

To date, Operation Grange, which now consists of four detectives from a peak of 31, has cost the British public more than £11m making it one of the most expensive police investigations in history. It was launched in 2011 after the Portuguese closed their enquiry in 2008. Funds are expected to run out at the end of March. Grange has been heavily criticised for refusing to reinterview Gerry and Kate McCann and the so-called Tapas Seven. The Met said local police had already done this and there was no need to repeat the process, but the Portuguese investigation was littered with failings and best practice in cases like this dictates it is always important to eliminate those closest to the child first.

In Britain, as matters currently stand, if the authorities are any closer to finding the chief suspect in the world’s most famous missing child case, they are certainly not saying.

As for the man the Smiths saw that night, he has yet to come forward to eliminate himself from the enquiry and remains unidentified.

Probably the worst kept secret in British Government History.Ask yourselves why so much high powered help so quickly from the Government of the time? Then ask yourselves why lines of enquiry were deliberately overlooked by Operation grange & why anyone who dared to query the abduction line were sued?

Advert for Peter Katin’s piano recital in aid of Albany Trust, with a speech by Clement Freud

Source: New Christian
Headline: Advert for Peter Katin’s piano recital in aid of Albany Trust, with a speech by Clement Freud

In 1968 (paedophile) Clement Freud gave a speech at a function to raise money for the Albany Trust:



The Goddard Inquiry, which is examining claims of a Westminster paedophile ring, declined to say whether Sir Clement would form part of its investigations.


What really happened the night Maddie disappeared

 The ex-carer, who worked for travel firm Mark Warner at the the Ocean Club resort  told how Madeleine was a favourite among the child minders. Her allocated nanny was Catriona Baker, but others also got the chance to look after her.

While the Ocean Club was clearly popular with British holidaymakers like the McCanns, from Rothley, Leics, the former child minder claimed it was considered an unsafe place for those who worked there.

After she arrived she was stunned when a fellow nanny passed on a message from hotel staff to never venture off the site alone.

She added: “I just couldn’t get over how different it was to other Mark Warner resorts.

“We were told, ‘Here’s a rape whistle, don’t go anywhere by yourself, ever.’

There’d been a girl attacked the year or so before in Praia da Luz. It didn’t sound like a family resort to me.

“I just got the feeling the locals didn’t want us there.” It emerged in 2014 that 11 years earlier a 10-year-old British girl had been sexually assaulted “in the heart” of Praia da Luz.

The victim came forward three years ago after a Scotland Yard appeal revealed a string of potentially linked sex assaults on young UK girls across the Algarve between 2004 and 2006.

Mark Warner, which operates in resorts all over the world, quit Praia da Luz in 2015.

The woman claimed local police  took 90 minutes to arrive on the scene.

The serious assault took place in Praia da Luz in 2005, two years before Madeleine was snatched.

It is one of 18 Algarve villa break-ins by a prowling paedophile who British police are now potentially linking to Madeleine

“The fact we’ve now got an assault that is in the heart of Praia da Luz means we are even more interested in this as part of the inquiry. This offence takes us into the resort so it is very significant.”

The new victim came forward following a fresh appeal last month when detectives revealed a string of break-ins across the Algarve, which included sex attacks on British girls aged between six and 12 from 2004 to 2006.

Before March, Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange was aware of 12 break-ins and four sex assaults. Now they are aware of six new break-ins including five new sex assaults.

Of the break-ins, which took place between 2004 and 2010, three happened at Praia de Luz, five in Carvoeiro, nine in the Albufeira district and one in Vilamoura.


Lord Mountbatten and Field Marshal Montgomery

His early life

The grandson of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud and brother of artist Lucian, Clement was born in Berlin in 1924, but fled to Britain with his Jewish family when the Nazis came to power.

After the war he trained as a chef at London’s Dorchester (Bramall & McAlpine), before being made manager of the glamorous Martinez Hotel in Cannes.


During the Second World War Clement Freud joined the Royal Ulster Rifles and served in the ranks.

He acted as an aide to Field Marshal Montgomery.

The “revelations” that Montgomery preferred the company of young staff officers to that of women have been around for a long time, and Hamilton himself referred to Monty’s “romantic friendships with young boys” in the original book, specifically the 12-year-old Swiss lad Lucien Trueb “who engaged Monty’s affectionate attention”.

The question Hamilton is really posing now is not whether Field Marshal Lord Montgomery of Alamein was gay, but whether he was a repressed paedophile.

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.

—Edward Bernays (“father of public relations,” nephew of Sigmund  Freud, subject of BBC documentary Century of the Self )

Prince Charles, The Barclay Brothers and Madeleine McCann

charlesarkThe first ever mainstream news story about Madeleine being abducted was the article in the Daily Telegraph on May 4, 2007 and timed at one minute past midnight. In other words, less than 2 hours after Kate and Gerry had raised the alarm, a top British newspaper was already sowing the seeds of the abduction story.

It is inconceivable that such a story could have been published so soon after the first call to Portuguese police yet it is there for all to see, set in the proverbial stone of the Internet archives.

In fact, the Telegraph have never removed the story (link).

Here is the original 4-paragraph story:

Three Year-old Feared Abducted in Portugal

By staff and agencies, Last Updated: 12:01am BST 04/05/2007

A three-year-old British girl has gone missing while on a family holiday in Portugal, the Foreign Office said today.

Portuguese police are investigating the disappearance from a holiday complex in Praia da Luz in the western Algarve.

A Foreign Office spokesman said that he understood the girl’s parents had gone to have dinner once their children were asleep last night, but returned to check on them only to find the girl had gone missing.

“They reported it straight away,” he said, adding that consular assistance was being offered.

The Daily Telegraph is a newspaper owned by the reclusive “Barclay Brothers” – David and Frederick Barclay. The billionaire Barclays also own The Ritz Hotel in London and have been the owners since the mid-1990s.

In 2002, The Ritz released the following press release:

In January 2002 The Ritz London received a Royal Warrant from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, for Banqueting and Catering Services.

Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to those who have regularly supplied goods or services to certain members of the Royal family for at least five years. The earliest known Royal Warrant dates back to 1155 and the distinction has always been regarded as a mark of excellence and quality.

Quite clearly then the Barclay Brothers and Prince Charles have a very strong connection by way of their little “business” deal at The Ritz.

There are numerous other connections. For example, between 1968 and 1974, the Barclay Brothers received large loans from Crown Agents – then a UK public statutory corporation. This dodgy outfit was eventually privatised when sold off in 1997. The actual owner of Crown Agents is the Crown Agents Foundation – its sole shareholder. Members of the Crown Agents Foundation include – wait for it – the Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum!

The murky Crown Agents is worth an in-depth investigation and to do that here is beyond the scope of this article. It is however worth mentioning that they were involved in the rebuilding of Iraq before  the 2003 war even began. From the BBC on March 11, 2003 (here):

Construction firms such as the US’s Fluor and Bechtel, Britain’s Costain and Balfour Beatty, and France’s Spie are usually the first in; service providers such as British Crown Agents and Swiss SGS are rarely far behind.

As has been stated before in this website, the number of connections between Prince Charles and Madeleine McCann are startling. This one, via the Daily Telegraph owners and their premature story is remarkable.

Cyril Smith admitted spanking and touching boys, but I let him stay, says Lord Steel


PAEDO PEER Ex Lib Dem leader Lord Steel unmasked as backer for sex fiend Sir Clement Freud’s knighthood

21st August 2016

Steel also to blame for getting gong for child abuser Sir Cyril Smith

PAEDOPHILE Sir Clement Freud was nominated for a knighthood by ex-Lib Dem leader Lord Steel, The Sun on Sunday can reveal.

The evil pair, who shared a Commons office, were both awarded knighthoods in the space of 12 months between 1987 and 1988 after Steel proposed them.

Lord Steel should tell us what he knew about Cyril Smith

September 20 2017,

In October the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse will hear evidence about the abuse of boys by Sir Cyril Smith, the former MP for Rochdale. I represent Smith’s alleged victims and was present at the preliminary hearing today. They want an answer to one simple question: why was Smith never prosecuted?

There were several police inquiries into Smith during his lifetime. In 1969-1970 he was investigated by Rochdale police for sexual offences against boys at Cambridge House, a local boys’ hostel. In 1970 Rochdale police strongly recommended that Smith be charged with sexual offences against several boys. But Norman Skelhorn, then the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), not only decided that Smith should not be prosecuted but, remarkably, gave him an assurance of no further prosecution in respect of Cambridge House.

The paralysis in dealing with Smith over later years emanates from the decision not to prosecute him in 1970. After the DPP’s decision, Smith seems to have believed he could act with impunity, and evaded justice until his death.

Evidence now available reveals an interesting sequence of events. In 1970, Smith — a prominent Rochdale councillor — ceased to be an Independent and joined the Liberals. By then, the Rochdale Liberals had already selected their parliamentary candidate for the 1970 general election, Garth Pratt. But the then Liberal Leader, Jeremy Thorpe, was desperate for Smith to become his candidate for Rochdale; he believed only Smith could win the seat for the Liberals.

In early 1970 Thorpe sent Ted Wheeler, his national agent, on a successful mission to Rochdale to displace Pratt and replace him with Smith. Wheeler became aware of the allegations against Smith.

The DPP received the file from police on March 13, 1970 and delivered his no-prosecution decision six days later. It’s long been suspected that powerful people may have intervened with the DPP on Smith’s behalf. But, remarkably, on March 2, Smith had already been selected as Liberal parliamentary candidate for Rochdale — at the behest of the national Liberal leadership — before the DPP had even received the file from Rochdale police. Why did the Liberal leadership take the risk of selecting Smith as candidate weeks before the DPP officially decided not to charge him? Given that it seems that the Liberal leadership were aware of the allegations against Smith, these events beg the question of whether they had reason to believe that the DPP would decline to prosecute, and would give that assurance to Smith.

Smith lost the 1970 election but went on to become MP for Rochdale in a 1972 by-election. One person who may be able to shed light on these events is Lord (David) Steel, the former Liberal leader. Steel became an MP in 1967. In June 1970 he became Liberal chief whip. Steel would have inherited the chief whip’s files, and may have been involved in vetting Smith before he became the victorious Liberal candidate in 1972.

When allegations against Smith first surfaced publicly in 1979, Steel was dismissive of them. He also used the 1970 decision not to prosecute as justification for the later failure of the Liberals to act on complaints against Smith.

We can now see how damaging the DPP’s decision was for any chance of justice for Smith’s alleged victims. So, Lord Steel needs to tell us what he knows.

MI5 knew of cover-up over Cyril Smith child abuse, inquiry hears

9 Oct 2017

MI5 knew the country’s chief prosecutor had covered up a sex abuse inquiry into Cyril Smith but did nothing because it was not its job to expose paedophiles, an inquiry has heard.

Files released by the intelligence agency show it was aware that the Director of Public prosecutions (DPP) had lied to a newspaper over its decision not to prosecute Smith. But it decided not to make the information public because its duty was to ‘defend the realm’ rather than to expose a  prominent politicians accused of being a paedophile.

The disclosure came during the first day of hearings into how Smith, the former Liberal MP, was able to abuse boys at Cambridge House hostel and Knowl View residential school in Rochdale. Smith died in 2010, having never faced prosecution.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) last night released an MI5 briefing note which showed how Sir Thomas Hetherington, the then DPP, had lied to a local newspaper about the existence of a 1970 police inquiry into allegations of gross indecency made against Smith.

Had the DPP admitted Smith had been under investigation, it would have led to a new inquiry and Smith being put on trial in his lifetime.

Hetherington had called a legal adviser in the intelligence agency to inform him of the press interest from David Bartlett, a journalist with  the Rochdale Alternative Press. The briefing note states: “After consultations, the DPP’s press representative had untruthfully told Bartlett that they had no record of this case. In fact their file closely accorded with the details given by Bartlett.”

The MI5 file from 1979

The memo, from the MI5 legal adviser and written in April 1979, goes on to suggest that the South African intelligence agency had been “trying to obtain compromising information about political figures” and that Smith was one of them.

The police investigation into Smith had been closed nine years earlier in 1970 by Hetherington’s predecessor Sir Norman Skelhorn who decided it was unlikely to lead to a prosecution.

Skelhorn’s decision was made despite a senior detective warning that the “sordid” accusations against Smith “stood up”.

Brian Altman QC, IICSA’s lead counsel, told the inquiry: “The documents show that the Security Service’s legal adviser was informed of the false representations to the press from the DPP’s office.

“Based upon their review of the information they hold, the Security Service considers they took active steps to ensure that those involved in investigating allegations of child sexual abuse against Smith were made aware of all information of relevance to their inquiries.


wording here starts off exactly like the torygraph article – so ‘official brief via No 10?’

Revealed: Ex-chief constable who says Cyril Smith cover-up went right to the top

  • Retired police chief reveals there was a ‘cover-up’ of Cyril Smith’s crimes
  • Former head of Lancashire Police, Albert Laugharne, says it was ordered by a top official 
  • Albert Laugharne is highest ranking ex-officer to give details of a cover-up
  • Claims follow revelations on how Smith’s powerful friends hid his abuse

A retired chief constable has revealed that a ‘sinister cover-up’ of the crimes of paedophile MP Cyril Smith was ordered by a top official working for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Albert Laugharne, former Chief Constable of Lancashire Police, said that in the 1970s he was asked to lie about the politician’s alleged sexual abuse of a boy.

This newspaper has been told that a surveillance squad targeting a paedophile ring providing rent boys for orgies photographed Leon Brittan entering premises where the parties were believed to have been held on at least two occasions. At the time he was a minister in the Home Office.

A planned raid was called off at the last moment, allegedly on orders from senior Met command. Photographs and papers that could have been used as evidence then went missing, one officer who was part of the surveillance team has alleged.

told to hand over all evidence they had gathered on Smith — including notebooks and incriminating video film — and to say nothing more of the affair.

If they did speak out they might be prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act.

Mr Laugharne was given, he says, a clear indication that Smith enjoyed special privileges as a predatory paedophile VIP.

Sir Tony Hetherington, the DPP at the time that the then Lancashire police chief Albert Laugharne was told by his office to shut up about Smith.

Sir Tony Hetherington, the DPP is dead, Cyril Smith and Leon  Brittan are dead, as is Willie Whitelaw who had, while Home Secretary in 1980, allegedly blocked a police investigation into a Westminster paedophile ring.

However, former Met boss Sir David McNee is still with us.

Smith had been investigated by Lancashire police at least four times by then, going back to the Sixties. The investigations were all halted.

Lord David Steel (left) put Rochdale MP Cyril Smith (far right, behind Freud) … for a knighthood, despite being told of abuse allegations against him.

The politician, now Lord Steel, was made aware of the reports that Smith had sexually abused young boys in his hometown of Rochdale, Lancashire, in 1979.       

But dismissed the allegations – claiming: ‘All he seems to have done is spanked a few bare bottoms’.

Steel’s support was given even after he was told of allegations that Smith had abused kids.

The Cabinet Office had refused to tell us who had proposed Freud for a knighthood in 1987.

But after we appealed, Whitehall caved in and last week confirmed the mystery sponsor’s identity as Lord Steel.

At the time Lord Steel wrote a glowing obituary, calling him “one of those rare characters who managed to excel in several spheres”.

Clement Freud with Jeremy Thorpe

Jeremy Thorpe visited PIE (Paedophile Information Exchange) member and Freemason Keith Harding’s office as did Cyril Smith and Leon Brittan.)

When Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe was engulfed in scandal over allegations he had tried to have his homosexual lover killed to silence him, Freud was one of his few colleagues to publically stand by him.

It was Freud who helped him compose his letter of resignation at his St John’s Wood home

Among his charity work he was president of the Down’s Children Association and also former secretary of the Refugee Children’s Fund.

Lord Bell. The s paid him £500,000 to keep them on the front pages of newspapers every day for a year.

On 19 November 1977 Bell was fined £50 for indecency. He had exposed himself while masturbating at his Hampstead bathroom window on 21 October in full view of female passers-by.[4][5] He left Saatchi to found Lowe Howard-Spink & Bell (serving as deputy chairman) in 1985 and bought out part of it, which became his own agency, Lowe Bell Communications, in 1989,[3] and became Chairman of Chime Communications in 1994 (which included the Bell Pottinger Group).
Are you aware that a week prior to the fabled abduction , Bell Pottinger had its crisis management arm “Resonate” in situ at the ocean club on a supposed “generic brief” ? …..stinks!

Moreover why would a crisis management concern with the standing of Resonate be in a sleepy Portuguese backwater? …the list of “somebody’s” owning properties in that sleepy backwater is quite staggering though

The government set up a very high-powered liaison committee on Tuesday 8 May under the Chairmanship of Matt Baggott, Leicestershire Police Chief Constable. It consisted of representatives from a wide variety of government departments and agencies. The government has refused to answer FoIAct questions about who those agencies were.

Government Ministers Gordon Brown (Chancellor of the Exchequer) and Margaret Beckett (Foreign Secretary) spoke to Gerry McCann in the first week. Tony Blair, Prime Minister, did so later.

Literally hundreds of international journalists were also there in that first week.

Why don’t other missing children receive this treatment?

I’m beginning to think this is not about the McCanns at all but about something much, much bigger. Why else wheel in such government bigwigs as advisors?

Uri Geller Attends The Funeral Of Sir Clement Freud

Uri Geller


Uri GellerUri Geller

Since he first found fame bending spoons and playing mind-games with TV viewers in the mid-70s, Israeli-born Uri Geller has continued to be a regular fixture on TV and radio, with recent appearances including the reality TV show I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here and the Louis Theroux documentary Louis, Martin And Michael, as well as selling his own range of jewellery on the shopping channel QVC. Here he tells SJ about his love of foreign synagogues, his affinity with Britain and his plans for Chanukah.

1. What do you enjoy about the UK and what was it that made you move here?
What made me move here is a strange story, I lived in the United States and Richard Branson asked me if I could fly with him on the inauguration of Virgin Atlantic over 20 years ago, and next to me sat Sir Clement Freud, who was then a member of parliament.

I happen to be related to Sigmund Freud myself, my mother is a Freud and my name in my British passport is Uri Geller Freud, and I invited Clement to my home in Conneticut and he somehow managed to convince us that England is a much more civilised country than the US. My kids were small then and I said maybe it’s about time we moved, and that’s why we moved here.

Lord Janner: My friend Michael Jackson

June 26, 2009

Leading Jewish peer Lord Janner spoke today about his sorrow at the death of Michael Jackson, whom he regarded as “delightful company” and a good friend.

Lord Janner was introduced to the singer by psychic Uri Geller.

“He came to Parliament in 2002 and I showed him round,” Lord Janner recalled. “He had come to the UK to help fund-raise for Exeter Football Club, which Uri chaired.

“I showed him all around the Lords; it was a Friday and the staff were thrilled. When we got to the place where the Queen sits when she opens Parliament, he looked at the chair and then turned to his assistant. He said: ‘I want one exactly like that for my home.'”

Lord Janner said he had not been familiar with Jackson’s music when they first met but had had the opportunity to see him in California at Universal Studios. “We had dinner together and then I watched him dance. He was an incredible dancer. It was absolutely astonishing.”

The peer said he would miss the entertainer, whose death was announced today.

New Michael Jackson Lawsuit Alleges Child-Abuse Procurement Ring
A new lawsuit alleges Michael Jackson’s businesses were a front for grooming children to be abused


The latest complaint, filed by a Jane Doe who alleges that she was abused by Jackson from 1986 to 1989, when she was aged 12 to 15, claims that Jackson secretly operated, “the most sophisticated public child sexual-abuse procurement and facilitation organizations the world has known.”


Michael Jackson child sex syndicate trial date set

March 13, 2017
Wade Robson received a trial date Monday for his blockbuster claims Michael Jackson and his inner circle operated the most elaborate child sex syndicate “the world has known.”The choreographer, who says he was just 5 years old when he first met the King of Pop, is set to begin his negligence trial against the late singer’s companies MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures on March 5, 2018, a Los Angeles judge said.A Robson lawyer said the next 12 months will be spent “gaining access to the materials needed for a much-anticipated trial.”“We look forward to completing that discovery and disclosing to the public, through trial, the full extent of Michael Jackson’s serial sexual abuse of children, which was facilitated through his companies MJJ Productions and Ventures,” lawyer Vince Finaldi said in a statement.An attorney for the companies, meanwhile, said he doesn’t believe the case will make it that far.“My opinion is that summary judgment will be granted in this case and there won’t be any trial, but the court did set a trial date for a year away just in case,” lawyer Howard Weitzman told the Daily News.Robson, who has worked for Britney Spears and N’Sync and appeared as a judge on “So You Think You Can Dance,” is one of three plaintiffs making similar claims in related lawsuits against Jackson’s companies.

The choreographer, 34, filed an amended complaint in September claiming Jackson and key staffers at MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures ran a “sophisticated child sexual abuse procurement and facilitation operation.”

Robson claims Jackson and his employees worked in concert to arrange his private meetings with underage fans, cover travel expenses and shower the youngsters with gifts.

“Make no mistake, Neverland Ranch was nothing but a well-orchestrated trap,” Finaldi previously told The News. “It was custom-built to attract kids so he could groom them and decide which to sexually abuse.”

The amended complaint, obtained by The News, added new negligence claims to his suit against the two companies.

Robson claims he was brought into Jackson’s orbit as a small child in the late 1980s after winning a dance competition in Australia organized by MJJ Ventures.

Two years later, a Jackson assistant contacted his family about meeting with The Gloved One and staying at Neverland during a trip to Los Angeles, he says.

The assistant served as Jacko’s “madam” or “procurer,” his filing states.

During that visit, Jackson allegedly sexually abused Robson. The abuse continued for eight years until Robson hit puberty and Jackson lost interest, according to the complaint.

During the pop icon’s 2005 molestation trial in Santa Barbara County, Robson denied he had been sexually abused. He later recanted, saying it took intensive therapy for him to come to terms with the abuse.

In 2013, Robson’s initial claims against Jackson’s estate were thrown out when a judge ruled he’d waited too long to sue. He is now pursuing the separate civil claims against Jackson’s companies.

A source in Jackson’s camp called the new complaint “too silly” to warrant a response.

? The information put together by Richard D Hall is quite amazing. In this part of his investigation, he examines why the British government showed such intense interest in the alleged abduction of Madeleine McCann. It does make you wonder who else might have been involved. Was there someone very high up in British politics present in Portugal during Madeleine McCann’s ‘disappearance’? Blair or Brown possibly?

Strachan was working in 1997 at the boys club and resigned when caught by police at the time. Also roddy McDonald was club doctor at Celtic from 1999 – 2006 so missing records dont point to mccann and McCann was in new Zealand from 96-98

Thats from the mirror. There’s loads saying same in NZ Herald and daily record. Also he played football for Napier city rovers in NZ in 1996 Also that story of him moving to England in 96 doesn’t add up if they were in Glasgow when Lawrence died + before going to England in 2000


Saying he took time out from the infirmary to do medicals for the club in mid 90s.He probably did a bit of that but was never club doctor.thus no files were deliberately wiped from 2000 at the club.Theres historic cases of sick individuals in UK who don’t represent the wider club

Dr Jack Mulhearn was Celtic doctor from 1994 – 1999 as well

Looks like NZ 96-97. He worked for 3 years at the glasgow uni so basically 97 – 2000 and was married in Liverpool in Dec 1998. Moved to England full time mid 2000. No chance he was at Celtic in 2000. The only source of him working at Celtic is the physio

Ex-Celtic coach James Torbett to stand trial charged with historical sex abuse of SIX boys

6 Apr 2018

FORMER Celtic Boys Club coach and founder James Torbett is to stand trial charged with historic sexual abuse of six young boys.

The 70 year-old today faced the allegations during a hearing at the High Court in Glasgow.

Torbett, of the city’s Kelvindale, faces a total of 12 charges spanning from January 1970 to August 1994.

The boys mentioned are said to have been aged between four and 14 when Torbett is first accused of abusing them.

A number of locations are listed on the indictment including Barrowfield Football Ground in Glasgow’s London Road, where Celtic used to train.

Offences are said to have occurred at Torbett’s home, dormitories in Belgium and France as well as training facilities in Glasgow’s west end and Bristol, England.

Prosecutors also list “factory premises” known as The Trophy Centre in the city’s Pollokshaws.

Torbett’s QC Tony Graham today pled not guilty on his behalf to the charges.

Judge Lady Stacey set a trial due to begin in June. The case could last up to 10 days.

Bail for Torbett was continued meantime.

Offences are said to have occurred at “factory premises” known as The Trophy Centre in the city’s Pollokshaws.

Portuguese prosecutors “never concluded McCanns were innocent”

February 09, 2017

Newly released legal papers show that Portugal’s supreme court does not consider Kate and Gerry McCann in the clear over their missing daughter.

Former police chief Goncalo Amaral

As the 10th anniversary of Madeline’s disappearance nears, the McCanns, of Rothley, are still fighting for their reputation, having just suffered another defeat in their attempt to sue former police chief Goncalo Amaral, who accused them of being responsible for Madeleine dying.

The supreme court of Portugal recently ruled Mr Amaral’s “right to freedom of expression” was worthy of greater protection than the couple’s “right to honour”.

Now the court has released the full version of its decision, which includes the observation that just because no criminal case is ongoing, does not mean that the McCanns are definitely innocent.

Kate and Gerry McCann ‘not formally in the clear’ over daughter Madeleine’s disappearance

The couple were ruled out as formal suspects, or “arguidos”, back in 2008 due to lack of evidence – but in court papers released today, judges have said this does not equate to a ruling of ­innocence

9 FEB 2017

Kate and Gerry McCann have been dealt another cruel blow as a Portuguese court failed to put them in the clear over the disappearance of daughter Madeleine.

The couple were ruled out as formal suspects, or “arguidos”, back in 2008 – but in newly released court papers, judges have specified that this does not equate to a ruling of ­innocence.

It will add to the McCanns’ torment, after the same judges ruled against the couple last week in a legal battle with the police officer who led the hunt for their daughter.

The couple sued ex-police chief Goncalo Amaral after he wrote a book claiming they were responsible for Madeleine’s “death” in May 2007.

But he fought the case and Portugal’s Supreme Court sided with him.

In the 76-page ruling on the case – made public – they also said the archiving in 2008 of the criminal case into Madeline’s ­disappearance does not prove the McCanns are innocent.

They wrote: “It should not be said that the appellants were cleared via the ruling announcing the archiving of the criminal case.”

While the judges said it would be wrong to draw any inferences about the couple’s guilt or innocence from the decision, they noted that the case was not shelved because prosecutors believed that Kate and Gerry, from Rothley, Leics, were innocent – but due to a lack of evidence.

They wrote: “That ruling was not made in virtue of Portugal’s Public Prosecution Service having acquired the conviction that the appellants hadn’t committed a crime.

“The archiving of the case was determined by the fact that public prosecutors hadn’t managed to obtain sufficient evidence of the practice of crimes by the appellants.

The court concluded that the archiving of the case should not be seen as proof the McCanns are not guilty, stating: “It doesn’t therefore seem acceptable that the ruling, based on the insufficiency of evidence, should be equated to proof of innocence.”

McCanns lose again in Maddie book row

KATE and Gerry McCann have lost another court battle in their bid to silence claims they faked their daughter Madeleine’s disappearance.

Mar 23, 2017

A Portuguese supreme court judge has again backed local ex-police chief Goncalo Amaral’s right to make the allegation in his book about the case.

The publication, The Truth Of The Lie, sensationally claims Gerry, 48, and Kate McCann, 49, faked missing Madeleine’s abduction.

The couple, whose daughter vanished during a family holiday on the Portuguese Algarve in 2007, now have only the European Court of Human Rights to go to in their battle with Mr Amaral

The McCanns launched an appeal last month after the Portuguese supreme court ruled they had not proved they were innocent of involvement.

But after hearing their nine-page complaint, the supreme court has again backed Mr Amaral.

Kate and Gerry, of Rothley, Leicestershire, who have warned they will sue if The Truth Of The Lie is sold in Britain, said after yesterday’s court’s ruling: “It is obviously extremely disappointing.”

The McCanns still hope that their eldest daughter, who would now be 13, is alive despite being missing for close to a decade.

The Met Police’s Operation Grange investigation into the case has cost over £12million.


How the Daily Mirror reported the court case

The damming document means suspicion still hangs over the heads of the McCanns, who have always claimed their innocence.

It was released after the court decided Amaral’s “right to freedom of expression” was worthy of greater protection than the couple’s “right to honour”.

Amaral, 57, was ordered to pay the couple £360,000 in damages in 2015 for claims he made in The Truth Of The Lie.

He said the McCanns faked Madeline’s abduction after she “died” in their holiday apartment. Amaral claimed his work was based on publicly available police and court files on the case. Kate described the book as “devastating and distressing”.

Amaral successfully overturned the ruling against him last April and the McCanns lodged a Supreme Court appeal.

But judges decided Amaral’s claims were “within admissible limits in a democratic and open society”. It means Kate and Gerry, both 48, face having to pay Amaral’s legal bills and could even be sued by him.

The McCanns may take the case to the European courts, but legal experts say they must prove they have a valid reason of appeal before any hearing would be even considered.

Madeline vanished from an apartment in Praia da Luz as her parents ate at a nearby restaurant. Detectives are said to be working on a theory that she was kidnapped by a European trafficking gang.

Madeleine McCann cops ask Home Office for more money in search for missing child

12th February 2018,

The fresh cash request comes after it was revealed parents Kate and Gerry McCann had more than £720,000 in reserves for their Find Maddie Fund.

The family have just seven weeks left of guaranteed funding for Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange inquiry.

The inquiry has cost taxpayers £11.2 million so far.

Madeleine McCann investigation receives more funding AGAIN

13 Nov 2018

Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have received a further £150,000 in government funding.

Madeleine was three when she was last seen while on holiday with her parents in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007.

The Metropolitan Police launched its inquiry in 2011 after a Portuguese investigation failed to make headway.

A total of £11.75m has been spent on Operation Grange to date. The new funding is for the six-month period until 31 March next year.

Detectives have been applying to the Home Office every six months for a grant to continue their work.

HRH Crafty Muvva @craftymuvva

Oh no. No, it cannot be allowed. How about if they allocate money for ALL missing kids and share it between them so the likes of Vishambar Mehrotra and receive the same resources as the well-connected McCanns?


so they have magic money to further fund Madeleine McCann totalling to £11m but they don’t have money for grenfell victims? for those who are still homeless? for the millions of other children that go missing per year? for the NHS? this government is beyond DISGUSTING.

2008 McCanns’ spokesman to join Freud Communications

The McCanns’ spokesman Clarence Mitchell is joining Freud Communications as a consultant.
…prior to becoming spokesman for the McCanns, Clarence Mitchell had been working under Tony Blair as Director of the Government’s Media Monitoring Unit, which by his own admission controls what comes out in the media.

Before that of course he’d been a BBC reporter, working on many prominent cases, such as Fred and Rosemary West, the Death of Diana and the Murder of Jill Dando, the latter 2 whilst he was a Royal Correspondent. [5]

Clarence Mitchell was one of the first reporters to arrive at Gowan Avenue, Fulham in south west London, when the immensely popular BBC TV presenter Jill Dando was shot dead in a murder many feel has never been satisfactorily explained.

That would never summon the UK’s highest orders of national security, would it? It evidently includes some very high up VIPs caught up in 3 5 7 plus; consider, resulting in a missing child…#mccann

Lay out the pieces. Child missing abroad to 2 nobodies. This invokes top brass form UK to hurtle over there & form a protective ring around #mccann As they are not, per se, a national security issue someone there was. Hence the cover up, MSM bias etc

Freudian slip?

In an article published on 14 June 2016, Craig Murray described how commenters on his blog had directly caused the exposure of the late Clement Freud as a paedophile.[3] Murray wrote:

“It then all went quiet for a year before ITV contacted me this morning to tell me the story was running.
“It is hard to know what to make of Freud owning a holiday villa close to where Madeleine McCann disappeared. Clement was apparently not in Portugal at the time. When you add in the fact that the McCanns’ sleazy ‘spokesman’, Clarence Mitchell, works for Freud’s son Matthew, the coincidences do add up.[4] I am not jumping to any conclusions at present. But I found the following fascinating:
“Clement Freud assured Kate McCann she had nothing to fear from the cadaver dogs giving a positive response inside the McCann’s hire car, hired after Madeleine ‘disappeared’. They had no evidential value. ‘So what are they going to do? One bark for yes, two barks for no?’ asked Freud.”[5]

Suffolk man avoids prison after downloading over 40,000 indecent images of children

29 November 2017

A man from Suffolk who became obsessed with child porn and downloaded more than 40,000 images has walked free from court after a judge decided not to send him straight to prison.

UK detective refused to head up Madeleine McCann probe because ‘Scotland Yard would order him to prove Kate and Gerry were innocent and ignore other leads’

  • Colin Sutton said he was warned by senior friend in the Met about case in 2010
  • Friend said he would be told ‘who to talk to and what to investigate’, he claimed
  • ‘Narrow focus’ would be to prove Kate, Gerry and Tapas Nine innocent, he said 
  • Spoke on Sky Documentary based on leaked Home Office report that revealed ‘turbulent relationship’ between McCanns and police in London and Portugal   

A detective tipped to head up the Madeleine McCann probe was warned he would be ordered to prove she was abducted and ignore other leads.

Colin Sutton said a high-ranking friend in the Met called him and warned him not to lead the case when Scotland Yard announced it would get involved in 2010.

The source warned that he would be tasked with proving her parents Kate and Gerry were innocent and ignoring any alternatives to the abduction theory, he claims.

Speaking to Martin Brunt on Sky News, he said: ‘I did receive a call from a very senior met police officer who knew me and said it wouldn’t be a good idea for me to head investigation on the basis that I wouldn’t be happy conducting an investigation being told where I could go and where I couldn’t go, the things I could investigate and the things I couldn’t.

Asked to clarify what he meant, he added: ‘The Scotland Yard investigation was going to be very narrowly focused and that focus would be away from any suspicion of wrongdoing on the part of the McCanns or the tapas friends.’

The Tapas Nine refers to the McCann parents and the seven friends they were out to dinner with when Madeleine disappeared in 2007.

They were interviewed by Portuguese Police, who have always worked on the basis that Madeleine was abducted from her room, but Mr Sutton said other possibilities should be entertained.

Speaking on Searching for Maddie, which looks at the case ten years on from her disappearance, he criticises the narrow focus of both Portuguese and British police.

He added: ‘If you are conducting a re-investigation you start at the very beginning. Look at all the accounts all the evidence all the initial statements and go through them and make sure they stack up and they compare.’

The documentary revealed details from a Home Office report on the case, ordered by then Labour minister Alan Johnson before the 2010 election, seen by Sky News’ Martin Brunt.

The report shows that Gerry and Kate McCann’s relationship with Portuguese police after they closed the investigation into her disappearance.

The Met took the unusual step of getting involved in the case in 2010 after the report was compiled, and recommends police collaborate with private investigators hired by the McCanns because of the ‘unique nature of the case’.

However, it also reveals that much of the information gathered by investigators had not been shared with police investigating the case so far.

Highlighting the ‘turbulent relationship’ between the parents and detectives, it describes how the McCann’s felt badly treated by the Portuguese authorities.

They were called in to speak to officers then asked to wait for hours, only for a detective never to appear, in treatment they described as ‘inhumane’.

The relationship broke down entirely when Portuguese police closed the investgation in to Madeleine’s disappearance in in Praia de Luz.

When the Met Police came in, they also fell out with local police. The Met would later fall out with the McCanns too, the report revealed.  

Mr Johnson wanted to find out if the Met should intervene further in the case so the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre investigated.

It was commissioned in late 2009, completed by March 2010 and published in May 2010, MailOnline understands.

In May 2011 the Home Office launched the Scotland Yard review of the case. The Met’s investigation has cost £11million so far.

The report said: ‘It is clear that from the beginning the McCanns felt there was a lack of clarity and communication on the part of the Portuguese police.

‘Despite the involvement of British consular staff, they were, by their own accounts, left for long periods without any updates or communication with the investigators.

‘They state they were taken to the police station on more than one occasion and then left for hours waiting to speak to someone who never materialised.

‘They describe this situation as inhumane, with no real consideration for their emotional and physical wellbeing.’

The report also reveals tensions between the Portuguese and British police, with the Met accused of acting ‘like a colonial power’.

The report says: ‘Clearly, the McCanns have had a turbulent relationship with both Portuguese and UK law enforcement. They now openly acknowledge that there is a distinct lack of trust between all parties.’

The police in Britain and Portugal say they are working together to find Madeleine, who vanished on May 3 2007.

The documentary was aired just hours after it emerged the former Portuguese detective Goncalo Amaral claimed Madeleine’s body was cremated in a TV interview.

The detective, one of the leading investigators early in the case, made the wild statement hours after her parents vowed to take him back to court over other claims.

Amaral made his latest statement on a TV documentary to be aired on the 10th anniversary of her disappearance from the Praia da Luz resort in Portugal.

The claims will add to the anguish of her parents who, in a moving interview this week, said they have still not given up hope on seeing Madeleine again.

Amaral said she may have been hidden in another British woman’s coffin as she was cremated, and said the church where Madeleine’s parents prayed was key.

He said: ‘We had information three figures went into the church via a side door at night. They had a box and there was to be a cremation of a British woman.

‘It is possible the child’s remains were in this box and cremated as well. The parents had the key to the church,’ reports The Sun.

The claim is the latest spark in a long dispute between Amaral, who was booted off the Madeleine case, and Kate and Gerry McCann.

Amaral, 57, claimed in The Truth Of The Lie that Madeleine died at the McCann’s holiday house and Kate and Gerry covered it up.

The McCanns won a libel case against Amaral in 2015, and he was ordered to pay them 250,000 euros (£209,000) each in damages.

But this was overturned on appeal and that decision upheld in another court this April, meaning Amaral is now able to sue the McCanns for damages potentially totalling tens of thousands of pounds.

During the interview, BBC presenter Fiona Bruce asked the McCanns: ‘One of the police officers in Portugal has been a thorn in your side for many years, he was thrown off the investigation but then he wrote a book … and you fought it through the courts.

‘At the moment you’ve lost and he’s won. Is this the end for you now, are you going to continue to fight him?’

Mr McCann replied: ‘I think the short answer is we have to because the last judgment I think is terrible.

Crucial Madeleine McCann case questions that remain unanswered after a decade

Irish journalist John McGee was holidaying in Praia da Luz when the little girl went missing. In a compelling account, he says we seem to be no nearer to the truth

May 2 2017

One of the first things people instinctively do when a toddler goes missing in a holiday resort is check all the swimming pools. Every year, several hundred kids around the world accidentally drown in swimming pools when they wander off from parents.

This was possibly one of the first thoughts that preyed on the minds of Kate and Gerry McCann and the rapidly assembled search party that frantically went running through the streets and laneways of Praia da Luz in Portugal 10 years ago, on May 3, 2007.

Within minutes of discovering that the three-year old was missing from the ground-floor holiday apartment in the Mark Warner-owned Ocean Club resort pool, areas in neighbouring holiday complexes were checked in the vain hope that she might have wandered out of the apartment of her own accord.

Somewhat oblivious to what was unfolding on the streets below us, my wife and I and our daughter, who was only a few months older than Madeleine, went to bed in the Estrela da Luz apartment complex a couple of hundred yards from where Madeleine disappeared.

Having just returned from dinner in a nearby restaurant, we could hear commotion four floors below us on the street. It eventually moved on to another street and, thinking nothing of it, we headed for our wine-induced and, in hindsight, selfish slumber.

The following morning, our world would never be the same. But it would pale into insignificance when compared with the anguish of the McCann family.

A little English girl has gone missing overnight, we were told by one of the women working on the reception of the apartment complex. Hastily printed photos of a pretty, young blonde child had been left at hotel and apartment reception desks. This was the same Madeleine McCann we had seen tagging along with her mother as she pushed her twins in a double buggy up the hill. This was happening to the same family we had passed on several occasions days before as we walked down towards the supermarket. This was the same Gerry McCann we had seen playing tennis several days earlier.

The initial search the night before was called off around 4am, but as people woke up to the morning news, fresh search parties were immediately formed to scour the neighbouring hillsides and countryside while road-blocks were put in place by the police.

Later, a helicopter hovered over nearby fields and mountainous terrain, scouring every inch. A team of microlight gliders from a local club also joined the frantic search, focusing on areas difficult to access by foot.

Within 24 hours, the relatively quiet Hugo Beatty’s bar and restaurant on the ground floor of the Estrela da Luz complex was transformed into a bustling press centre for the many journalists and camera crews dispatched to cover a story that had spread like wildfire.

In fairness, nothing had prepared the local police or indeed the regional police for anything like this. Not surprisingly, their initial unwillingness to share any information – possibly because they were quite literally clueless – was confused with ineptitude, a charge which stuck to them for much of the subsequent investigations.

Explaining to our daughter what was happening was difficult. Instinctively, parents want to protect children from all the horrific things that go on in this world. However, after we were asked to produce her passport at a police checkpoint just outside the village and officers examined her closely and looked at her passport several times to see if she resembled Madeleine in any way, we had to tell her the police were looking for a girl who had gone missing and that her mummy and daddy wanted her back. We told her they would soon find her. We all wanted to believe that.

Daytime searches gave way to night-time vigils at the church of Igreja de Santa Maria in the village. As Kate and Gerry McCann filed into the small church, the despair etched deep into their faces, onlookers lit candles. Others just wept.

Criminal investigators say the first few hours after an abduction are the most crucial. But as the days slipped by without any sightings or remains being found, a sense of foreboding gripped the village.

At no stage of the initial investigation, however, did local police attempt to interview us or anyone in our apartment complex, despite its proximity to the Ocean Club resort. In our case, certain things we had witnessed over the previous week and indeed on the night of Madeleine’s disappearance might have been of use to them.

The suspicious looking characters hanging around Hugo Beatty’s bar two nights earlier – one of whom resembled the identikit photo issued by the Metropolitan Police years later; the pick-up-style truck that sped past us as we walked back to the apartment from the restaurant that fateful night; the elderly bearded man videoing children at a nearby theme park three days before.

At the time, their possible significance meant nothing to us, but they might have been of some help. It was only when we arrived back in Dublin five days later that we felt compelled to volunteer statements to the gardai, who then passed them on to Interpol, by then already on the case. Presumably, Interpol then passed them on to the Portuguese police.

In addition, the many photos we had taken during our holiday that might have provided clues or identified ‘people of interest’ in and around Praia da Luz and Lagos were uploaded to a website that was set up by the investigation. We never heard anything back from the Portuguese police, who in July 2008 officially closed the case.

But it was a case that was never going to go away. With teams of private detectives, PR professionals and assorted high-profile benefactors like businessman Sir Philip Green and author JK Rowling, the Find Madeleine campaign never gave up hope, and a concerted effort was made to keep it in the headlines, something that irked the Portuguese police considerably.

This relentless campaigning eventually paid off when, in May 2011, Operation Grange was launched by the Metropolitan Police in London, following a request from the then Home Secretary, Theresa May, with the support of Prime Minister David Cameron. Assisted by the Portuguese authorities and a team of 29 detectives, Operation Grange initially sifted through more than 40,000 documents from Portuguese, UK and other European law enforcement agencies, as well as various private investigators who had worked on the case.

When all of this was complete, a full investigation was launched in July 2012, five years after Madeleine disappeared.

This time around, the investigation appeared to be a bit more professional, structured and detailed. The Portuguese investigation started on the back foot. Apart from the fact that they had missed that window of opportunity in the immediate aftermath of Madeleine’s disappearance, accusations of leads not being followed up and sightings not being investigated were compounded by personal changes at the top of the team spearheading the investigation.

To many, particularly in the media, they were behaving more like the Keystone Cops than professional officers.

Of particular interest to the Metropolitan Police was the speeding pick-up truck that flew past us on the way home from the restaurant and the three suspicious looking in Hugo Beatty’s bar. It later emerged that two waiters working in the restaurant also noticed a man acting suspiciously in a phone box across the road earlier in the evening. And one of the subsequent identikit photos published by the Metropolitan Police of two men they wanted to talk to resembled one of the men we’d spotted in the bar.

After carrying out a cell-dump of all mobile phone activity in the Praia da Luz area in the lead-up to Madeleine’s disappearance and the days after, the Metropolitan Police were also able to identify all the telephone numbers we dialled, as well as the numbers that had dialled us during that period. As is the norm in such cases, details of all calls made and received were submitted as part of our statements.

The use of cell-dumps has helped police gain convictions in several high-profile murder cases in the past, and nowadays cell-dumps are almost as useful to the police as fingerprints or DNA. It was later reported by several UK newspapers that the cell-dump turned up a large number of telephone calls and texts in and around the Ocean Club between a group of men around the time of Madeleine’s disappearance. Nothing ever came of it.

In total, Operation Grange took 1,338 witness statements, collected 1,027 exhibits and pursued some 560 lines of inquiry. In addition, more than 30 requests for help to other countries were made, while 60 people of interest were investigated. A total of 650 sex offenders, many of them paedophiles, were also considered, while reports of 8,685 different sightings of Madeleine around the world were investigated. These included Morocco, New Zealand, Malta, Belgium, France, Spain and Sweden.

Costing more than £11m, Operation Grange may have been wide-reaching, but so far it has yielded no results. Over the last 12 months, it has been wound down. Currently, a team of just four detectives is working on the case and pursuing, what former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe recently said was “one final lead”.

For the McCanns, it might be too much to expect this final lead to yield anything meaningful. Ten years have passed and despite possible sightings, several key witness statements and a substantial amount of leads, the absence of any physical evidence leads one to the almost inevitable conclusion that the case may never be solved.

Over the last 10 years, numerous theories about what happened that night have emerged. The one that gained credibility among the media on the ground at the time was that she had been abducted by a paedophile ring and shipped out of the country that night, possibly on a yacht from nearby Lagos.

A number of sex offenders, including several convicted paedophiles of different nationalities, had been living in the Algarve and parts of lesser-known areas of western Spain at the time.

Several years before Madeleine’s disappearance, a number of sexual assaults on young girls had taken place around the Praia da Luz area, but nobody was ever caught. Other iterations of this theory put it that she was possibly abducted by somebody with close knowledge of the Ocean Club and sold on to a group of gypsies that specialised in child trafficking and selling children to wealthy families overseas.

Several people, including Jane Tanner, one of the so-called Tapas Seven who dined with the McCann family, claim they saw a man carrying a girl in pyjamas that night. An Irish family, from Louth, also recall seeing a barefoot child fitting Madeleine’s description being carried by a man in the town at 10pm, not long after it was first noted that she had gone missing.

Meanwhile, a taxi driver, Antonio Castela, says he picked up four adults and a girl resembling Madeleine the night after her disappearance and drove them to a hotel near Faro, where they got into a blue Jeep. Castela claims he contacted the police, but was never questioned.

In the 10 years that have elapsed since Madeleine’s disappearance, however, only three official suspects have been named. The first of these named by Portuguese police was the British-born property consultant Robert Murat, who lived locally. Murat was the subject of a witch-hunt by several newspapers and was later cleared of suspicion, but not before several UK newspapers libelled him. He picked up around £600,000 in damages, while smaller settlements were awarded to some of his friends.

Then, in September 2007, Kate and Gerry McCann were also named as suspects, and the police formally put forward a case that Madeleine died in an accident and that they concealed her body and faked an abduction. This was the most controversial of all the theories and one that the former head of the investigation, Goncalo Amaral, reiterated in a book.

The McCanns later successfully sued Amaral for libel, and he was ordered to pay €600,000 in damages. Amaral’s appeal against that decision succeeded in 2016, but the McCanns then appealed that decision to Portugal’s Supreme Court, which ruled against them in February 2017. A subsequent appeal to the Supreme Court by the McCanns was also rejected in March of this year. Amaral has now indicated to the Portuguese Press that he intends to sue the McCanns.

As we near tomorrow’s tenth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance, it remains to be seen what approach, if any, the McCanns will take in the future. While they have reaffirmed their commitment to finding their daughter and have always proclaimed their innocence, their financial war-chest may be able to sustain their campaign for another few years. But it would also appear that they are running out of options. Unless new leads are identified, the Portuguese police may never re-open the case. As far as the Metropolitan Police are concerned, they have done their best and everything that was asked of them.

Meanwhile, back in Praia da Luz, it’s business as usual. Locals are no longer willing to talk about the Madeleine McCann saga. They have moved on.

Popular opinion appears to be divided into two camps. In one camp sit those who believe that Kate and Gerry McCann were, in some way, complicit in their daughter’s disappearance. Over the last 10 years, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts and websites have been used as platforms to spew all kinds of malicious accusations and theories, dreamt up by cranks, trolls and armchair detectives, all of which point the finger at the McCanns. But here’s the thing: however rancorous these opinions are, they are just opinions. If the people in this camp have any evidence, then they know what they must do.

In the other camp, however, sit those who believe no parent could harm, either accidentally or intentionally, a helpless three-year old then try to cover their tracks. Many within this camp, including the McCanns, their extended families, friends and supporters, believe that Madeleine could well be living in some far-flung corner of the world, being reared by another family.

Sadly, there are some of us who believe that this story does not have a happy ending and that she is dead, possibly as a result of an unspeakable crime, and her remains may never be found.

But like all unsolved mysteries, we may never know.

Madeleine McCann detective claims investigation was ‘tainted’ as soon as it was an ‘abduction’

April 27 2017

Goncalo Amaral says Portuguese prosecutors felt ‘intimidated by the United Kingdom’ and claims Kate and Gerry McCann were given special treatment by British authorities

The former Portuguese detective who led the probe into Madeleine McCann’s disappearance a decade ago claims the investigation was tainted as soon as it was deemed an ‘abduction’.

Goncalo Amaral says Portuguese prosecutors felt ‘intimidated by the United Kingdom’ and claims Kate and Gerry McCann were given special treatment by British authorities because they were doctors.

The ex-policeman refuted claims his officers’ probe was shoddy and says interference from the UK hindered the process.

He maintains devastated parents Kate and Gerry were involved in three-year-old Maddie’s disappearance on May 3 2007 in Praia da luz.

The former officer also pointed the finger at the British class system in an interview which will be aired on Portuguese news channel CMTV on Monday.

He told Portuguese magazine Sábado: “They belong to the upper-middle class and the British do not like their doctors to mess up abroad and get convicted for it.”

Retired Amaral, who was removed as head of the probe after criticising British detectives, claimed UK authorities tried to rush the process.

He said: “It is not normal for an ambassador from a foreign country to come to the place to push in the sense that ‘this has to be quick’.

“If the ambassador and even the consul had not appeared, the investigation would have been directed to what is normal – to suspect those who have responsibility for the custody of the child.

“(The) Judiciary, Public Prosecutor’s Office and the government felt intimidated by the United Kingdom.

“The mistake was the statement about the abduction. It was almost a lack of respect to make the decision (that it was an abduction) and to make it public.”

Portuguese detectives said on May 5 2007 – just two days after her disappearance – that they believed she was still alive in the country after being abducted.

Then director of the Policia Judiciaria Guilhermino Encarnacao made the announcement, stating officers were working on the assumption Maddie was being held between 1.8 and 3.1 miles from the resort.

One eyewitness told the Mirror Portuguese police arrived on the scene at the Ocean Club complex some 90 minutes after Madeleine vanished.

Our source also accused police of messing up key witness statements taken in the days after the tragedy.

But Amaral denies Portuguese police made a string of errors, instead accusing British police of trying to ‘protect’ the McCanns.

Amaral said: “When the couple left, the British police who were here to cooperate and help also left. The feeling was that the British police were here to protect the couple.”

Amaral accused Portuguese police of now ‘doing the politically correct’ thing by following Scotland Yard’s lines of enquiry, to ensure they do not compromise relations between the UK and Portugal.

He said: “The management of the Policia Judiciária and the prosecutor himself are doing the politically correct.

“In the United Kingdom and here the direction of the police walked with Scotland Yard. Do not investigate anything that might compromise your parents or friends. It is a mistake.”

Get ’em Gonçalo ‏@abuseofpower

Look what just appeared on the Sun’s message board

The statement of Dr Katherine Zacharias Gaspar made to Leicestershire Police on 16 May 2007:

One night, when all the adults, that is, from those couples I have mentioned above, were all sitting around on a patio outside the house where we were all staying. We had been eating and drinking ‘Berbers’.

I was sitting between Gerry and Dave and I think both were talking about Madeleine. I can’t remember the conversation in its entirety, but they seemed to be discussing a particular scenario. I remember Dave saying to Gerry something about ‘she’, meaning Madeleine, ‘would do this’.

“While he mentioned the word ‘this’, Dave was doing the action of sucking one of his fingers, pushing it in and out of his mouth, while with his other hand he was doing a circle around his nipple, with a circular movement around his clothes. This was done in a provocative way. There seemed to be an explicit insinuation about what he was saying and doing. I remember being shocked by that. I always felt it was something very weird and that it was not something anyone should say or do. I looked at Gerry, and also at Dave, to gauge their reactions.

“I looked around as if saying: “Did someone else hear that, or was it just me?”. The conversations stopped for a moment, then we all began conversing again. Moreover, I remember Dave doing the same thing on another occasion. In saying this, I want to mention once again that it was during a conversation in which he was talking about an imaginary scenario, although I’m not sure. He again stuck one of his fingers in and out of his mouth and with the other hand he once again drew a circle around his nipple in a provocative and sexual way. I think he was referring to the way she, that is, his daughter Lily, would behave or what she would do. I think he did this later during this same holiday.


And then it just gets creepier:mccann-podesta-cant-arrest

Little Madeleine McCann disappeared out of her bed while her family was vacationing in Portugal in 2007, a place the Podesta family is known to vacation to according to other Wikileaks emails like this one.

Others have pointed out the police sketches above were really of just one suspect initially, not two… but it is also two sketches from two different witnesses, so that doesn’t prove anything about how many perpetrators there actually were.

Still, the portraits side-by-side are uncanny, and on top of the mountain of other disturbing evidence, for some people this is just one too many coincidences.

Not only that, but a DDoS attack was reportedly initiated against sleuths on 4Chan at the same time new information on the McCann case was being released

Madeleine McCann detectives ask Home Office for more cash to search for missing youngster for another six months

26 SEP 2018

Detectives investigating the disappearance of Madeline McCann have asked for more funding to find her, the Mirror can reveal.

Scotland Yard has applied to the Home Office for extra cash to extend Operation Grange for another six months.

Madeleine was three years old when she vanished from her parents’ holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal.

The Portuguese police investigation into her May 2007 disappearance was shelved the following year.

Scotland Yard launched Operation Grange in 2011 and nearly £12m has been spent on their probe.

The government granted the Met an extra £154,000 in March to extend the probe for another six months.

It has now confirmed a request has been lodged for more cash up until March next year.

The Home Office says it is “considering” the request, which would be paid from Special Grant funding.

It also denied reports Operation Grange would finish by the end of the month if funding is not granted.

A spokesman said: “We have received and are considering a request to extend funding for Operation Grange until the end of March 2019.

“Funding for Special Grant applications can be paid retrospectively for operational work already done in the same financial year.

“It is therefore incorrect to suggest that the MPS would have to discontinue its operational work after 30 September 2018 unless additional funds were provided in advance of this date.

“The Home Office maintains an ongoing dialogue with the MPS regarding funding for Operation Grange.”

“Special Grant funding is usually available to police forces when they face significant or exceptional costs.

“The cost of Operation Grange – which, to date, is £11.6m – has been met through Special Grant funding.”

Many current and former police officers, other experts and writers continue to cast serious doubt on the McCann’s version of events...
