Former Croydon headteacher John Coatman has buggery convictions anulled by High Court judges due to police and Crown Prosecution Service errors.
18 Apr 2017
A retired headmaster who had been found guilty of gross indecency with a 14-year-old boy has had his conviction nulled due to police and Crown Prosecution Service errors.
John Coatman, 76, a former headteacher at St Andrew’s Church of England High School in Waddon appealed to the High Court to overturn his conviction for historic sexual abuse at the Old Bailey in August.
Senior judges this month overturned the jury’s verdicts that Mr Coatman, who had also been honoured by the Queen for his services to young people, had sexual activity with the teenager in the 1970s.
Three judges at the Royal Courts of Justice quashed his outstanding convictions on April 6, ruling that Mr Coatman should not have faced the charges under section 1 of the Indecency With Children Act 1960 and section 13 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956.
The Right Honourable Lady Justice Hallett DBE stated: “Both (the police and Crown Prosecution Service) were wrong (to pursue these charges).
“The appellant could not be charged with offences under section 1 because of the age of the complainant at the time and could not be charged with offences under section 13 because they were time barred.”
Mr Coatman could not have committed an offence against a 14-year-old boy in 1973 under Section 1 of the 1960 Act because the law did not relate to alleged victims of that age until 2001, Lady Justice Hallett ruled.
Buggery charges levied against Mr Coatman under Section 13 of the 1956 Act – provided at the time under the heading ‘Indecency with Men’ – were ‘inapt’, the judge ruled, because the alleged conduct amounted to an assault towards a victim, rather than a sexual act with another man.
Lady Justice Hallett added: “Over the last few years this court has issued repeated warnings about the dangers of poor drafting of indictments in cases of alleged ‘historic sexual abuse’.”
A Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) spokesperson said: “We have contacted the complainant in this case to explain the issue and apologised.
“The CPS has issued advice to our specialist sexual offences prosecutors about the appropriate offences to charge in these particular circumstances, to reflect the changes in the law and recent Court of Appeal judgements.
“Cases currently before the courts have also been re-checked to ensure the error does not happen again.”
The judges said the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) was “responsible for this deeply regrettable state of affairs” and added a new case could potentially be brought against Mr Coatman alleging different charges.
Mr Coatman was made an MBE in 2012 for services to young people. During his trial he told the court he had worked with about 22,000 young people in his lifetime,
Ex-head teacher John Coatman appeals conviction after being found guilty of gross indecency
A jury at the Old Bailey in August found John Coatman, 75, guilty of gross indecency with a boy in the early 1970s
Coatman, of Leyburn Gardens, was due to be sentenced at the Old Bailey today, but applied to the Court of Appeal to overturn his conviction. He did not appear in court himself.
The hearing was indefinitely adjourned by Judge Richard Hone, who previously warned Coatman, who taught for 42 years, to expect a jail term.
Update: August 26, 2016
John Coatman MBE – Crusaders/ Urban Saints Youth Group Leader found guilty of gross indecency with young boy
John Coatman, leader of Urban Saints Youth Group, Croydon was warned by Judge Richard Hone QC that he faced a jail term. He is due to be sentenced on September 30.
Sexual contact took place on about four or five occasions.
In emotional testimony in front of the jury, the man – who was 14 at the time at the time – broke down in tears as he described the alleged abuse taking place
“… the effects of abuse on a young person can be quite traumatic…”
A retired headmaster, John Coatman, has been charged with having sex with a 14-year-old boy he met through a Christian youth group in the 1970s.
Jurors heard that at the time of the incidents, Coatman was not only the headteacher of a secondary school in south London (St Andrew’s Church of England High School), but was also involved in a Christian group for boys.
The name of the Christian youth group is – Crusaders/now called Urban Saints Youth Group organisation – Cliff Richard’s group
Mr Coatman, who described himself as a bachelor told jurors that the topic of sex did crop up during youth group meetings, but only in reference to passages in the Bible involving “Christian aspects of sexual behaviour”, he added.

Special commissions from such charities as Tear Fund, the Children’s Society, Church Army and Care for the Family, have resulted in songs of compassion and justice. They have been sung at major public occasions – including the Dunblane memorial service.
Amongst those who were included, and who stayed the course, were singer Cliff Richard and Radio One DJ Jimmy Savile, alongside more obvious suspects like Malcolm Muggeridge (he had spoken at VALA’s first convention, declaring that ‘if Till Death Us Do Part is life, I cannot see that there would be anything to do but commit suicide’) and the Rt.

John Coatman reckons he’s been to about 300 Crusaders camps over the years
Westbrook started life as a large Victorian residence surrounded by 25 acres of mixed parkland that was purchased by Crusaders Union in 1948
The original intention of the Committee at the time was to use a Memorial Fund of just over £500 to purchase a field as a permanent camp site for the ever developing Crusader holidays

1979 Margaret Thatcher immediately carried out her promise to slash public spending, recommending that heating be drastically rationed in offices and schools.
This led to a remarkable revolt in Westerham in October 1979 when rebel children from Churchill School, led by senior pupils, burned their text books and walked out in protest against the cold. When headmaster John Coatman went into the playing field to remonstrate, many returned. Around 50 to 60 protesters stayed outside until a caretaker confirmed that the boilers were on.

WHAT IS AN URBAN SAINTS GROUP ANYWAY? There was a bumper crop of Urban Saints family members included in the 2012 New Year’s Honours list by Her Majesty The Queen.
This included MBEs for John Coatman (for his work with young people in Croydon, including the Wallington Urban Saints group), Dr Avice Hall & Stephen Hammersley (for their work in education, the community and their own local groups, in St Albans and Harpenden respectively). Former Crusaders Director, Dr Alan Kerbey, received an OBE for his work with young people in education and another former staff team member, Colin Henry, was recognised for with a MBE, for services to education in his role as Chair of Governors at Christ’s College in Guildford.

Crusaders, the youth missionary movement, hosted “An Evening with Sir Cliff Richard” recently in Central London to celebrate its centenary.
Alongside Steve Chalke, the President of Crusaders, Sir Cliff shared his personal life and faith, as well as performing a couple of songs from his repertoire.
Sir Cliff shared openly about his early days as a young performer, his big break, his very public conversion to Christ and the significant role played by Crusader leaders in his early Christian journey.
He spoke fondly of his time with Crusaders.
Sir Cliff is Patron of the Crusaders
Cliff Richard’s drag queen friend and supporter, Paul O’Grady worked at care homes where Jimmy Savile abused and where Crusaders (members of the organisation that Cliff Richard is patron of) were charged with abuse.
Paul O’Grady as drag queen, Lily Savage (Carlton Television) worked for Camden Council Social Services
From his autobiography:
Last night TV funnyman Paul O’Grady told how Savile was banned from being alone on a girls’ ward at a care home where the Lily Savage star once worked.
O’Grady, recalled the “creepy” DJ, Jimmy Savile visiting the Conny Home in West Kirby, Merseyside, which housed disabled and abused children in the 1970s.
He said: “Some of the house mothers were told not to let him on the girls’

West Kirby Residential School, West Kirby, Wirral
A group of 10 claimants has already issued legal proceedings relating to claims for severe physical and sexual abuse from the mid 1970s to the early 1990s at West Kirby Residential School in Meols Drive.
Three men (Graham Charles Webb, Henry Christie, Matthew Johnson) received jail sentences at Liverpool Crown Court for their part in the physical and sexual abuse at the residential school.
*Former head of care Graham Charles Webb, was jailed for seven years in July 1997 for abusing boys at the school and at camps he helped organise.
Webb, who also worked for a well known Christian youth movement, admitted abusing 20 children over a period of almost 20 years.
(West Kirby Residential School, West Kirby, Wirral
Matthew Johnson was also at Balliol School, Sedburgh, Cumbria.
The former house parent, of Kirby Stephen, Cumbria, committed the offences on five pupils at the residential school and three boy scouts who were in his care when he was a scout master.)
And another Crusader leader charged with abusing boys:
Crusader leader vicar Rev David Henry McIntosh:
Crusader Graham Webb charged along with
fellow Crusader leader vicar Rev David Henry McIntosh:
Alongside McIntosh in the dock was 41-year-old Graham Webb, who was care head at a West Kirby residential school, and Bournemouth man Robert Moses.
Some of the charges involve both McIntosh and Webb, who were leaders of activity holidays.
FORMER West Kirby residential school head Graham Webb and a vicar face indecency charges.
Rev David Henry McIntosh, of Fenwick Lane, Runcorn, has been bailed with sureties of £2,000. A condition of bail is to make no contact with Webb. They will appear at Crown Court to plea on June 12, after being directed to the higher court by Wirral magistrates.
26 Mar 1997
The Rev McIntosh had been staying at an address in Fenwick Lane, Halton Lodge, Runcorn, but has now been moved to a secret venue which was not revealed in open court.
Reporting restrictions have not been lifted.
A Church of England VICAR, the Rev David Henry McIntosh,
who sexually assaulted young boys during naked “shower games” at holiday camps organised by a Christian youth group has been jailed for three years at Liverpool Crown Court.
The court was told that the “shower games” took place during Crusader holidays at a boarding school in Swindon, Wiltshire, in 1988,1994 and 1995 and at a weekend gathering of boys for a reunion at a church commissioner’s house in Llandudno in 1994.
His position was made more serious by the fact he had helped draw up documents advising leaders about appropriate behaviour with the boys.
The Church of England vicar, who resigned from his post at Barnton, near Northwich, after his arrest last December, used to work as part of a ministry team in Ellesmere Port
He studied maths and physics at Durham University.
He is charged with 19 indecent assault allegations at West Kirby, Swindon, Minehead, Malvern and Cheltenham, four matters of gross indecency at West Kirby and two other offences brought under the Sexual Offences Act.
He had been involved with the Crusaders for longer than his involvement in the church, attending more than 40 holidays during that period of time.
PERVERT VICAR JAILED
A VICAR who sexually assaulted young boys during naked “shower games” at holiday camps organised by a Christian youth group has been jailed for three years at Liverpool Crown Court.
McIntosh, who was camp chaplain at the holidays at Pinewood boarding school, Swindon, from 1988 to 1991, became overall holiday leader there in 1993.
The two boys whom McIntosh abused in Llandudno were both from an Ellesmere Port school where he was vicar.
Another Crusader charged with abusing boys at a care home:
Mr Gilbart-Smith… who had led the Crusaders children’s group for fifty years was accused of abuse
All the allegations were said to have involved Mr Gilbart-Smith and others at Greenfield House children’s hostel in Maidenhead, Berkshire.
During that time the court heard residents were subjected to sustained, systemic abuse at the hands of the home’s managers and numerous visitors.
The youngsters were repeatedly raped and even ‘loaned out’ to other paedophiles elsewhere.
Mr Gilbart-Smith, a successful businessman, was accused of being one of those who took part in the sex attacks.
Nine men “horrendously abused” by a paedophile ring in a children’s home 40 years ago have received an out-of-court settlement totalling more than £300,000
The civil settlement came despite the fact that no-one has ever been convicted of criminal offences regarding the abuse at the council-run Green Field House in Maidenhead, Berkshire, between 1964 and 1970
The home was then managed by ex-soldier Don Prescott, who died about 19 years ago.
He used to abuse the boys and rent them out to other paedophiles as far afield as Leicester, London, Cambridge and Reading
“Unfortunately for the boys staying at Green Field House, it was the centre of a paedophile ring numbering so many men some of the boys lost count of those who abused them.
“They suffered the most horrendous abuse – it was the worst type of sexual abuse. They were filmed, photographed and had to take part in the abuse.
“… it went on for six years.”
Nine men all with children and grandchildren claimed to have been raped by Gilbart-Smith the Lloyds investor during their stay at Green Field House children’s home Maidenhead (Theresa May’s constituency).
Gilbart-Smith, offered no defence other than a denial and a moral smoke screen, as he claimed to be a “Christian” who was a church leader at Foxes Piece School, Newfield Road, Marlow. Gilbart-Smith also told the court that he was a Bible teaching missionary and friends with a David Pawson.
The Prime Minister & The Nobbler
In 1970 the council in Theresa Mays Maidenhead constituency, brushed the horrific Green Field House child abuse scandal under the carpet, hoping it would never again see the light of day.
The child abuse surfaced again some thirty years later in 2000. Maidenhead police investigated but there was insufficient evidence to proceed with a criminal case, so a civil case was pursued by two complainants.
For the following five years *RBWM, denied the abuse ever took place. However, on the 29th November 2006 RBWM were forced to accept responsibility, and they agreed to settle a £300,000 compensation claim with nine rape victims, plus the considerable legal costs incurred from a five year investigation by solicitors Dyer Burdett.
*When we reference RBWM we are referring to the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead or Berkshire County Council (BBC) whose responsibilities RBWM inherited and or their insurers.
RBWM by settling the claims and paying £300,000 in compensation, agreed with the claimants and the Dyer-Burdett legal team that the unnamed man mentioned in the BBC website article, was a paedophile and had raped and abused 4 of the 9 claimants.
To recover their loss, RWBM immediately sued the unnamed man, who promptly paid RBWM £300,000 to cover their loss.
On top of the £300,000 the unnamed man also paid RBWM’s legal bill, including the costs relating to Dyer Burdett’s five year investigation. However, before committing to settle this payment, the unnamed man insisted on the following caveats:
- RBWM would keep his name secret.
- RBWM would keep the amount of cash he paid them a secret.
- RBWM would exclude him from any future claims if they paid compensation to any more of his rape victims.
With total disregard for the spirit of the law and public funds, RBWM amazingly agreed to the caveats and struck a deal with the now self confessed paedophile. This secret paedophile deal included a substantial payment to exclude the unnamed man from any future claims, if RBWM compensated any more of his rape victims.
THE BELOW STATEMENT IS A FACT!
The amount the unnamed man paid was over £1,000,000!
TO PAY HIS PAEDO-BILL THE UNNAMED MAN TOOK THE FOLLOWING ACTION!
April 12th 2007, the unnamed man sold his family home of twenty five years, Winterberry Jobs Lane, Cookham, SL6 9TX, for £1,475,000,00.
Winterberry Jobs Lane Cookham
Around the same time the unnamed man sold Ballyhaise Quarry Road, Marlow, SL7 1RE for £1,251,423,00. Ballyhaise had been a family home for about 35 years.
MORE INVESTMENTS WERE CASHED IN INCLUDING CAPE MARCO HOTELS.
By 2010 RBWM had settled 21 individual compensation claims for abuse that had taken place at the Green Field House children’s home. RBWM settled more than 10 compensation claims for rape by the unnamed man. None of the later claimants were made aware that their compensation claim was being paid with money RBWM had received from the rapist in a secret deal.
After three years of writing to Theresa May concerning the corrupt RBWM paedophile hush payment with ZERO response, the below letter & the book Rich Man Poor Man was sent to 100’s of MP’s.
Out of the 300 MPs the letter and book was sent to, one Scottish MP Brian Donohoe responded with a phone call. Mr Donohoe suggested that I approach Theresa May through my local MP which at that time was Mike Thornton, I acted on Mr Donohoe’s simple advice.
In the below email to Mike Thornton MP, RBWM break their secret agreement and name (Denham) Gilbart-Smith as the unnamed man that paid the RBWM rape bill.
2010 17th May
After a 2 year police investigation, Gilbart-Smith stood trial for 17 charges of raping and abusing 8 kids as young as nine. The secret RBWM deal was not allowed to be mentioned during the trial.
WATCH THE TRIAL VIDEO
- Gilbart-Smith agreed with the prosecution that all of his friends that went to the children’s home were paedophiles.
- Gilbart-Smith agreed to being an unpaid helper at the kids home and going on holidays with the children and the paedophiles.
- Gilbart-Smith agreed to being at the numerous places where the children were raped sold and abused by paedophiles.
- Gilbart-Smith’s only defence during the six week trial was, he didn’t know that his friends were paedophiles, he had no idea that the boys were being raped by his friends, and he personally did not rape or abuse any of the boys.
- Nine men who for the best part hadn’t seen each other for 40 years all claimed to have been raped or abused by Gilbart-Smith.
(One of the 9 made a complaint too late for charges to be made)
- The purpose of a jury is to return a verdict based on the evidence presented to the court, this jury returned a verdict in total contradiction to the overwhelming and robust evidence. All the jury had to decide in what for all intense and purposes was a ‘cut and dried’ case was: “Who is telling the truth, the nine men who hadn’t seen each other for 40 years or Gilbart-Smith?”
Watch the video and cringe at Gilbart-Smith’s pathetic lies, a jury of ten year old kids would have seen through Gilbart-Smith’s nonsense and found him guilty. In The Nobbler it is very clearly outlined how Gilbart-Smith, with no defence WHATSOEVER would once again outsmart the system with his wealth. If Gilbart-Smith had access to one million or fifty million pounds, all of it would be worthless to him in jail. No more Michelin Star restaurants for Greasy-Gilbart just porridge.
With the prospect of disgracing the family name and spending the rest of his life on the monster wing with child murderers, paedophiles, rapists and every other vile creature under the sun. True to his modus operandi, Gilbart-Smith paid out a large sum of *cash to nobble the jury.
*This would be very easy to establish as fact, seven years on a simple financial investigation on the jury members starting with the foreman would prove very interesting.
In 2010 Gilbart-Smith ran *IMS an insurance company that insured policy holders against kidnapping, international terrorism and such like. So Gilbart-Smith was no stranger to spooks and double dealing in the murky world of international intelligence, espionage, and subterfuge. Gilbart-Smith would communicate with spy academy type characters on a daily basis in his work environment.
*Gilbart-Smith is no longer connected with IMS.
The author of The Nobbler John Affleck was sent to prison for 12 months for contempt of the court for protesting against the corrupt verdict. Gilbart-Smith left court a free man with the tax payer paying his massive legal bill. Had the jury found Gilbart-Smith guilty, he would have had to pay his own legal fees, so if the content of The Nobbler book is truthful, Gilbart-Smith in effect paid for his jury nobbling activities with tax payers money.
Instead of suing John for slander and false accusations including tampering with the jury and the murder of three blackmailers, immediately after the trial at the age of 64 The Nobbler swiftly cashed in his assets and left the UK, leaving behind his children and grandchildren, he became a citizen of Northern Cyprus, a Muslim country that has no extradition treaty with the UK.
After John was released from prison Maidenhead MP Theresa May refused to answer any of Johns correspondence for the following three years concerning this matter. However, Mrs May did write to another of Gilbart-Smiths rape victims who lives in her constituency.
NOTE: Theresa May doesn’t respond to the question that was asked about the secret RBWM paedophile deal, but rather in typical politician fashion, she evades the question with statements like;
“we discussed your concerns”
“I appreciate your concerns”
“I have raised this matter”
“I noted the contents”
“In addition I have also raised this”
“I hope this will be of use”
Theresa May was specifically asked whether the secret £300,000 RBWM payment was moral, legal or in the public interest? For whatever reason the now Prime Minister has refused to look into this matter.
Myself and numerous other victims and or their MPs including; Norman Baker MP, Mike Thornton MP, Nick de Bois, MP, John Redwood MP, Mims Davies MP have all written to Theresa May as MP then Home Secretary and now Prime Minister asking the same question and Theresa May has consistently refused to answer this very simple question.
ALL MP LETTERS ARE IN THE JOURNALIST PACK
Prime Minister, instead of giving up salt & vinegar crisps for lent 2017, do you think it might be more appropriate for a person in your position to GIVE UP not answering a straight forward simple question concerning the £300,000 rapist payment to the authority in your constituency?
On the 8th September John received a reply from Sarah Newton the minister for vulnerability at the Home Office. Incredibly Ms Newton advised John to complain to RBWM about the million pound plus payment that RBWM had received from Denham Gilbart-Smith after RBWM accused Gilbart-Smith of raping around ten children in their care.
QUESTION FOR SARAH NEWTON THE MINISTER FOR VULNERABILITY
Dear Mrs Newton, Should I also complain to Mr Gilbart-Smith for raping me when I was a ten year old kid?
You really couldn’t make this stuff up, it’s taken five years to get that advice from the Home Office.

The hospital is located within in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough and was first opened on 8 October 1888 as the West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum. In 1988, Jimmy Savile assaulted a patient at the hospital’s 100 anniversary celebrations.
It was in 1988 that Savile was a guest at a garden party to celebrate High Royds’ 100th anniversary, said local historian Mark Davis.
“He was a frequent visitor” said Mr Davis, a trustee of the Friends of High Royds Memorial Garden

Geoffrey Bettley was allowed to keep working as a teacher even after he was convicted of possessing indecent images of children
Bettley was working at St Mary’s Catholic High School in Menston, West Yorkshire, when he was arrested for downloading nearly 200 images.
He was cautioned and placed on a ‘barred list’ by the Independent Safeguarding Authority, although his name was taken off last June.
His case was heard by the National College for Teaching and Leadership professional conduct panel, which concluded that he was not a risk to children and the DfE backed the decision.
Peter Saunders, of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood, said he had ‘zero’ confidence in the Government’s ability to tackle child-related offences.
‘Everyone is aghast at the failure to grasp the common sense that everything must be done to ensure that these people can never go near classrooms again,’ he said.
Bettley, who joined St Mary’s in September 2001 from Yorkshire Martyrs Catholic School, in Bradford, West Yorks, was suspended from his job on December 9, 2010, and dismissed a year later.
In October 2011 the Independent Safeguarding Authority banned him from working with children, but removed the restriction on 21 June 2012
Mr Bettley, does not, in the view of the Panel, represent a risk to children and young people.

Kincora: ‘Highest profile people connected to abuse’ claim
Peter Brooke stonewalled.
The Kincora Boys’ Home in east Belfast was at the centre of a child abuse scandal in the 1980s
In February 1990, Brooke told Kevin McNamara, Labour’s then Northern Ireland spokesman, that the Kincora affair had been investigated ‘as fully and thoroughly as lies within the power of the Government to investigate it, and that no purpose would now be served by a further inquiry’
In October 1990, Brooke conceded for the first time, that the reports about the Kincora home came to the attention of the police.
Peter Brooke was sworn of the Privy Council in 1988. He was made Chairman of the Conservative Party in 1987, and then Secretary of State for Northern Ireland in 1989.
During his time as Heritage Secretary, he oversaw the restoration of Windsor Castle following the fire that had struck the state apartments in 1992.
Peter Brooke’s PPS was a chap called Bottomley.
His PPS for a time was Peter Bottomley (1990). In September 1984, Peter was Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Northern Ireland Office.

Jimmy Savile: Two separate attacks in High Royds Hospital at Menston, near Ilkley, which treated psychiatric patients, in the 1970s and 1980s.
Paul O’Grady appointed MBE by Prince Charles – The star said: “I’m delighted. Now I’m part of the Establishment.”
Prince Charles – friend of “creepy” Jimmy Savile:
Even now, 40 years on, the TV host and comedian shivers as he relives the night he saved the 18-month-old youngster’s life while working for social services. (Camden Council Social Services)
He tells how he fled the flat where he was keeping watch on the baby after a terrifying confrontation with the little lad’s drunken father – and how the drama ended with him making a desperate phone call to the Salvation Army for help.
Paul O’Grady reveals the terrifying moment in 1976 … he feared for his own survival
Paul O’Grady, while employed by Camden Council Social Services
took a toddler to a pub where Adam Ant was playing
“There were a few times when my life and that of The Sally Army crossed paths, but that night is one of the most memorable.”
After heading to London in the 70s, a few years before conjuring up Lily Savage , Liverpudlian Paul, then 21, worked for Camden Council Social Services providing respite care for families at home.
He says: “I remember the mother of this child had to go to hospital for an operation so I was there to look after him. He was only 18 months.
“It must have been about 2am when there was a banging at the door. I answered it …‘What are you doing carrying on with my wife?” he said.
“I tried to explain I was a care worker, but he just told me, ‘I want my kid.’
“‘You’re not getting your kid, mate,’ I said. ‘I’m sorry, you’ve got to get through me first.’
“So I took the child in the middle of the night…I hurried into this club next to Camden Town tube. I remember Adam And The Ants* were playing a gig there that night.”
“I asked the manager if I could use his phone to call my duty worker. But I couldn’t get through to him for some reason. So I called The Sally Army instead and said, ‘can you bloody help me?’
“And they came. And they didn’t ask lots of questions. They wrapped the kid in a blanket. We had a place of safety in Kentish Town and they took him there.
Adam Ant’s father, Alfred Leslie Goddard (left), was jailed for preying on runaway boys nearly 30 years ago.
*Stuart Leslie Goddard/Adam Ant’s father- Leslie Alfred Goddard- was jailed in 1987 with Sidney Cooke as part of the Dirty Dozen gang.
Boys had been hawked around “safe houses” and passed on to other members of the gang which included council porter Alfred Goddard, father of 1980s pop star Adam Ant.
The former council porter was a member of a gang that included Britain’s most notorious paedophile, Sidney Cooke, who was later convicted of the sadistic gang rape and killing of a teenage boy and is suspected of murdering many more.
It has emerged that detectives investigating shock allegations of three murders and systemic child sex abuse by senior Establishment figures are looking into Goddard’s possible involvement.
The suggestion is that the child sex ring, dubbed the Dirty Dozen and known to have targeted vulnerable youngsters, could have passed on their victims for the MPs to abuse.
At the time, Goddard lived in Eccleston Square, Pimlico, close to the exclusive apartments of Dolphin Square where the VIP child abuse ring is said to have been based.
29th Jan 1999 Sidney Cooke appears before Newbury Magistrates Court, charged with 14 serious sexual offences. which were said to have taken place in Battersea and Stockwell in south London; Twyford, Berks; Canterbury, Kent; Washington, Tyne and Wear and Hatfield, Berkhamsted and Tring in Herts.
Like Sidney Cooke, Leslie Alfred Goddard was also a chauffeur to rich families.
Alfred Leslie Goddard had served in the Royal Air Force.

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”.
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.
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 ?
Harriet Harman, PIE , etc …..
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.
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.

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.
Peter Tatchell has repeatedly denied writing the letter above. However below is his reply in the Guardian (1st July 1997) to criticism of his original letter. In his second letter (below) he never denies writing the first letter (above) or claims he was edited in any way.

However he has refused to disclose his payments for his numerous main stream media appearances or disclose how much his yearly expenses are.

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.
Andrew Sadler – Former teacher who was jailed abroad for sex offences against boys – Links to Fraser and Napier –
More on Sadler on this link
Leo Adamson helped set up Pie to distribute obscene pictures of young boys while John Parratt aka Warren Middleton was a former vice-chairman of the organisation
Leo Adamson, left. John Parratt right
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 Morrison and Barry cutler – Members
john morrison left. Barry Cutler, right
Geoffrey Prime – Former member and KGB spy
Sir Peter Hayman – Several links to P.I.E and its members – Former High Commissioner to Canada
Notorious paedophile and TV presenter Jimmy Savile was almost certainly a full member of P.I.E
Peter Bremner (aka Roger Nash) Member level – Bremner has convictions for indecently assaulting children. Jailed for 6 months in 1994 with David Joy. in 1978 Bremner was given a three month prison sentence suspended for 2 years and fined £150 for indecently assaulting 3 boys, two aged 8 and one aged just 5
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
Richard Bigham – Eldest son of viscount of Mersey admitted he was a member
Former Vicar and millionaire Michael Studdert –financial backer and member level
David Wade – The treasurer of P.I.E

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.

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.
