Why would the woman who called @InquiryCSA into being wish to delete all mention of her own father?

… the woman who wants us all to be fully transparent purges the Internet to hide mention of her father?

 

WHAT IS THERESA MAY TRYING TO HIDE ABOUT HER FATHER?


Theresa May’s Father, Reverend Hubert Brasier, was born on 20th August 1917 at 61 Clonmore Street, Wandsworth, London.

On the surface, Hubert had a pretty normal and average life. Growing up and living through World War 2 obviously came with its difficulties, from what we do know about Hubert, he led a normal life and there doesn’t appear to be any controversy linked to his name. The most obvious and key point is that he was the father of the 2nd Female, British Prime minister, Theresa May.

Due to this fact, it goes without saying that people will want to look up the history of Theresa May, in particular, her upbringing and parents. What is odd, is that Hubert Braiser did have a Wikipedia page detailing his life, his achievements and his background. When Theresa May became prime minister, the Wikipedia page was edited and eventually taken down.

This has obviously raised some eyebrows, it’s clear to see that Mrs May is trying to hide or conceal something about her Father’s past. While the Wikipedia page for her father no longer exists and now points directly to her own Wikipedia Page, anyone can view the old wiki page for Hubert Braiser by using the internet archive ‘Way Back Machine’. Using this tool you can see Hubert Braiser’s old Wikipedia Page here.


For reference, the old Wikipedia page for Hubert Braiser was as follows:


For anyone who wants to read an in-depth overview of Hubert Braiser’s life, I’d highly recommend reading this article published by Johnny Vedmore on The Swamp.

Some key points to take away is that Hubert Braiser worked for the Community of the Resurrection Seminary School in Mirfield, West Yorkshire This school would become well known and associated with the systematic sexual abuse of children by the Italian Verona brothers, who were rampant sex offenders in the 1960’s and 1970’s

In 1953, Hubert became the Chaplain All Saints at Eastbourne Hospital in Sussex. It was here that he crossed paths with the notorious serial killer Dr John Bodkin Adams. Dr Adams was the Harold Shipman of his day, he had his elderly patients put him in their wills and would then ‘bump them off’ by giving them an injection and then state of their death certificates that they died of natural causes.

Over 165 deaths have been associated with Dr John Bodkin Adams, his murderous rampage did not go un-noticed, many nurses did speak out and report the doctor to their superiors; however, due to the NHS being newly founded and in its infancy, officials thought that a scandal like this could cause the collapse of the NHS, as such Dr Adams was able to avoid justice for some time.

Dr Bodkin Adams just couldn’t stop himself, he carried on murdering his patients and was protected by Lord Gwynne who was believed to be his secret gay lover and was a very well connected politician.

Hubert is linked to Bodkin as he worked in the same hospital and would have given ‘last rights’ to many of Bodkin’s patients. Some have even speculated that Bodkin may have confessed his crimes to Hubert, as when he was quizzed about stealing from old women he said: ” ‘I have made my peace with God over that’.

In 1957 Dr John Bodkin Adams was charged and prosecuted for his crimes, he was acquitted of murder, which many have claimed was a clear and obvious cover-up. In the end Bodkin was convicted of 8 counts of forging a prescription, 4 counts of making false statements on cremation forms, and 3 offences under the Dangerous Drugs Act.

He was struck off and not allowed to practice medicine, however, in 1961, once the dust was settled, the NHS reinstated the doctor and allowed him to carry on practising medicine.

As chaplain of Eastbourne Hospital Hubert was under the Chichester Diocese of the Church of England. This diocese had some of the worst reports of child sex abuse from the 1960s until the early 1990’s. Many priests were outed as sex offenders who had for many years abused children under the nose of their own congregation.

On the surface it appears there isn’t much to see when it comes to Hubert Braiser, maybe there isn’t much to see; however, it does raise suspicion when Mr Braiser was so close to a prolific serial killer and associated to a diocese caught up in a child sex abuse scandal. It is no doubt that many of Mr Braisers associates and colleagues would have been directly involved or had a part to play in the scandal and its cover-up.

It’s also clear that Theresa May does not want the general public looking into her father’s background. There has been a clear attempt to erase Hubert Braiser’s historical portfolio from the internet.

Since Theresa May has put together the inquiry to investigate child sexual abuse, especially abuse at the hands of priests, it has raised some eyebrows that she is attempting to conceal her father’s background.

The inquiry that was set up was a farce in itself, May appointed Baroness Butler-Sloss to oversee the inquiry, 6 days later she was forced to step down from the position; as it came to light that her brother was Attorney General at the time a lot of the abuse was alleged to have taken place. As a replacement, Theresa May appointed Fiona Woolf to chair the inquiry, however, Mrs Woolf had to stand down when it became apparent that she used to live very close to Leon Brittan, an MP who was accused of sexually abusing young boys.

It appears that Mrs May is either incompetent or is clearly trying to sabotage the whole inquiry. If it is the latter, that draws several questions and concerns as to why she is attempting to erase her father’s history from the internet.

Why would Theresa May be petrified of anyone researching her beloved father Hubert Brasier

#1


#2 Well, her father was very closely associated with the Diocese of Chichester which spawned many paedophiles.



#3 I cannot imagine that Hubert Brasier, father of Theresa May, would NOT have known of the evil deeds of Shipman-like Bodkin Adams!

#4 Did Brasier take confessions from Bodkin Adams and did he help cover up his deeds for political reasons?

#5 Once again, Theresa’s father is closely associated with another institution involved in child abuse.


Makes you wonder why this woman’s first choice for IICSA chair was Sloshed Butler (Elizabeth Butler Sloss),  Known to be protective of church

Dame Alun Roberts @ciabaudo

It wasn’t coincidence that Theresa May chose the Sloshed Butler for her dirty work!

The brave Dickens was not dissuaded by Paedo Havers of Butler-Sloss fame.


Sir Michael Havers, brother of Baroness Butler-Sloss

Sir Michael Havers was appointed as Attorney General by Margaret Thatcher in 1979, and was made Baron Havers in 1987. He intervened three times between 1981 and 1983 to stop the investigation and exposure of Establishment paedophiles, and to prevent the publication of stories which showed that Establishment figures were members of the Paedophile Information Exchange.

It seems at the very least deeply inappropriate to have someone heading a ‘historic’ child abuse inquiry whose own brother played such a major role in the protection of Establishment paedophiles throughout the 1980s.

Home Office is FINED by the Treasury after May and Rudd broke rules with big pay packages for child sex abuse inquiry chief and panel

  • Home Office accounts reveal May and Rudd both broke government rules with pay for child sex abuse inquiry
  • Treasury has fined department £366,000 for not seeking authorisation for six-figure packages 
  • Breaches related to Professor Alexis Jay’s appointment in August 2016 and pay rates set for panel in 2015-16

Theresa May and Amber Rudd both broke government rules by handing big pay packages to senior figures on the child sex abuse inquiry.

The Home Office has been fined more than £366,000 by the Treasury after the chair and panel for the probe were handed six-figure packages without authorisation.

Theresa May set up the inquiry in 2014 in response to allegations of child sex abuse at institutions ranging from the BBC to children’s homes, but it has been beset by trouble from the start.

Mrs May was responsible for breaking the rules when as Home Secretary she set the daily rates for panel members at a generous £565 a day.

And Mrs Rudd breached them again in August last year when she appointed Professor Alexis Jay on a £220,000 package.

Under austerity restrictions introduced by the coalition, any salaries at a level above £142,500 have to be signed off by the Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

As a result the Treasury imposed an ‘exemplary’ fine of more than £366,000 to make clear its displeasure.

After two abortive attempts to appoint chairs, Mrs May drafted in Dame Lowell Goddard in February 2015 – but the New Zealand judge resigned 18 months later after a disastrous tenure and contested allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

The scale of Dame Lowell’s pay and benefits had caused fury, and she was reportedly given an £80,000 pay-off when she quit last August.

The Home Office’s latest accounts indicated that the fine related to Mrs May’s failure to follow rules when she appointed the judge to the key post.

However, the department later clarified the document was wrong and in fact the breaches related to the pay of the panel and Prof Jay.

Former shadow chancellor Chris Leslie told MailOnline the pay packages were a ‘debacle’ and ‘flew in the face of the most basic checks of the Treasury’s rules’.

Theresa May’s government won’t compensate children who were raped. It says they ‘consented’ to the abuse

July 18th, 2017

Children as young as 12 who are survivors of rape and sexual assault are being refused compensation by the government. The grounds for its denial? That the children consented to their abuse.

It’s your own fault

A group of five charities submitted a Freedom of Information request (FOI) to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). And it revealed CICA has refused to compensate over 700 children who had been raped or sexually assaulted. Even when the perpetrators of the crimes had been jailed. And the group of charities says that in some cases, CICA told survivors it was because they consented to their rape or sexual assault.

The Guardian reports that Barnardo’s, Victim Support, Liberty, Rape Crisis and the National Working Group (NWG) – have written to Justice Secretary David Lidington, demanding he reviews CICA guidelines.

Victim blaming

When giving evidence to the government’s Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (CSA Inquiry), Barnardo’s said [pdf p2] the CICA policy:

…differentiates between consent ‘in fact’ and consent as stated by the law… In the case of the young person that applied for compensation, [it] was denied because CICA stated that ‘In [the claimant’s] case it appears she willingly entered into a sexual relationship with [the] alleged offender’… We are very worried that CICA’s policy goes against consideration of consent in law…

Additionally, CICA’s view on consent appears to lack understanding about sexually abusive and exploitative relationships. In such relationships, the victim may appear to ‘consent’… yet in such situations the abuser will have carefully groomed and manipulated the young person into believing that their relationship and abuse is normal. This grooming process is often so carefully carried out that the young person is unaware they are a victim. This does not mean that the young person is not in fact a victim…

We are also concerned that CICA’s apparent lack of understanding on the issue of sexual abuse and exploitation can cause distress to young people who have been the victims of these crimes.

When ‘rape’ isn’t ‘rape’

As The Guardian reported:

In one example, a gang of older men were jailed for 30 years after being convicted of raping and sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl. Her case was taken up by Victim Support; she was denied compensation by CICA on the grounds that ‘she had not been the victim of non-consensual sexual acts’.

She was devastated and left with the feeling that she was somehow responsible for the abuse she had suffered, the charity said.

Disgusting

The Canary contacted CICA for comment but it failed to respond.

The attitude of CICA, and the government more broadly, is staggering. If it is not traumatic enough that children have to go through the unimaginable torture of rape and sexual abuse, to then have the government body that’s supposed to defend you saying, at best, ‘Well – it’s your own fault, really’, is a national outrage. The Conservative government must heed these charities’ demands and change the rules by which CICA is governed. Quickly.

Door2Door‏ @jamesmcmenamin1

that same Theresa May who appointed Butler Sloss because of the great cover up job she did in #Cleveland

 

The Tory government set up a judicial enquiry under Lord Justice (Elizabeth) Butler Sloss. The enquiry sat for a year, heard evidence from parents, social services, police, doctors, nurses and – without any apparent unease – from a champion of paedophile rights, Ralph Underwager. It cost £5 million.

But there was one very odd aspect to the enquiry. Its remit from Whitehall prohibited it from asking – let alone answering – the most important question of all: how many of the 121 children at the centre of the crisis had been abused ?

The evidence in the documents clearly answered the question Butler-Sloss had been forced to duck: had these children been abused ?

The papers showed that the children had long histories of involvement with social services and painstakingly documented injuries. In many cases a convicted paedophile was living in their houses, and many had made very convincing disclosures of sexual activity with adults.
In the end, and with Yorkshire TV’s backing, we decided they were too important to throw away.
Just what was Cleveland really about ? For me it was clear: it was about the plight of children – some just toddlers – who were abused and – briefly – rescued; then re-abused by a child protection system which could not bear the pressure from politicians and press. The truth of what happened to those children was too difficult to hear. Which is why we called the film Cleveland: Unspeakable Truths.

Jane Hersey @HerseyJane

Failed Tory candidate Butler -Sloss an Anglican judge covered up church #CSA abuse & establishment abuse that’s why @theresa_may hired her

They all seem to have something in common and will go to any length to protect paedophiles

Theresa May’s Father

The Serial Killer, The Traveller’s Daughter, and the Cover Ups

Theresa May's Father

Theresa May’s Father, Reverend Hubert Brasier, was born on 20th August 1917 at 61 Clonmore Street, Wandsworth, London. Like many people a century ago, his was a home birth. Hubert’s father, Tom Brasier, was a military man. He had served as a sergeant in the King’s Royal Rifles, but was a clerk by the time Hubert was born. Hubert’s mother’s maiden name was Amy Margaret Patterson and they had married 8 years prior in Hampshire. Amy and Tom’s first son, James David Brasier, had died within a year of his birth in 1911 in Uttaranchal, India, where Tom Brasier had been deployed whilst in service. Two years later, in 1919, Hubert was joined by his younger sister and only other sibling Jean Robina Brasier.

By 1938, Hubert Brasier was 21 years old and attending Leeds University. On the 27th April 1939, preempting World War 2, Neville Chamberlain’s cabinet introduced limited conscription. Single men between the ages of 20 to 22 were now eligible to be called up for compulsory military service. A month later the ‘Military Training Act’ was passed in the UK Houses of Parliament. On the 3rd of September 1939 WW2 began and the ‘Military Training Act’ became the ‘National Service (Armed Forces) Act’ which increased liability of call up to men aged 18 to 40.

Hubert Brasier (front row, third from left) at Community of the Resurrection college in 1940.

In the year 1940 Hubert Brasier, then 23, had a decision to make. As a man of his age in the early years of WW2 he was probably heading to fight the Nazi Wehrmacht, or heading to defend British colonial outposts. Hubert Brasierfelt his only path was that of the Anglican-Catholic Church, and he joined the priests at the Community of the Resurrection Seminary School in Mirfield, West Yorkshire. In years to come the Community of the Resurrection would become known for the systematic sexual abuse of children at the seminary by the Italian Verona brothers, who were rampant sex offenders in the 1960’s and 1970’s. However the seminary in Mirfield in the early 1940’s was just about to start welcoming its first refugee children. In December 1941 mass bombing of Sheffield and other northern industrial towns meant many children were evacuated to the countryside. The residents of Mirfield were some of the first to support the war effort and receive evacuee.

The Community of the Resurrection had only been founded at the later part of the 1800’s. The people of Mirfield took some time getting used to having the single young men of the seminary walking around the village. One Mirfield resident recalled them being referred to as ‘The Petticoat Men of t’Resurrection’. In the early 1900’s the residents of Mirfield grew suspicious of the men of god and this climaxed to a protest outside the Black Bull in Mirfield proper. Father Frere, a talented musician who was popular with the locals, stood on a chair and used his preaching talents to good effect. The community of Mirfield and the Community of the Resurrection were a tight knit unit by the 1940’s. When the northern industrial hub of England began to be targeted by the Luftwaffe nightly, many children from all over England were evacuated to communities such as Mirfield. Hubert Brasier would only stay in Mirfield for the beginning of his training.

In 1942 he was designated to a new church, in London, and after a year of hands on priestly experience he would be ordained. Hubert’s first placement was at The Church of St Andrew on Sandhurst Road in Catford, Southwark. The bombings were numerous in Catford, and the community was very close, soon to be brought closer by tragedy. On the 20th January 1943 a bomb landed directly on the local Sandhurst Primary School, 38 Children were killed alongside 6 teachers. To be a man of God in this devastated community would have meant sharing a lot of suffering and loss. The parents of many of the lost children agreed for them to be buried in a mass grave at Hither Green Cemetary, and for a terraced memorial to be laid in their honour.

Theresa May’s father was still a bachelor priest at this point in history. During the war life, the whole of London could be savage. The bombing brought death daily to Lewisham and the number of funerals were overwhelming for all of the local religious institutions. When war ceased Hubert continued to serve the Anglican-Catholic community of Catford until 1948 where he was relocated to a Reigate in Surrey and the very small, steeple-free church of St Luke, in the Southpark area. In contrast to The Church of St Andrew in Catford, St Luke’s was almost retirement. Obviously the stress and strain of the war experience had affected the still single Hubert, and the transfer made for good respite. In 1952 Hubert had reached the age of 35, and as in Mirfield at the turn of the century, celibacy provided more questions than it answered. Communities were already rife with gossip and speculation about the private lives of others. It can be presumed that the Anglican-Catholic churches history of child abuse is older than just the last 60 years, and it would usually be easier for a priest to be married.

The Serial Killer

The following year, in 1953, Hubert became the Chaplain All Saints at Eastbourne Hospital in Sussex. Over the next 6 years he would work alongside the famous serial killer Dr John Bodkin Adams. For those who are unaware of Dr John Bodkin Adams, he was believed to be the Harold Shipman of his age. He would usually prey upon his more elderly patients, convincing them to put him in their wills, of which over 130 complied. They were soon given an injection by Bodkin Adams, and would conveniently pass away of ‘natural causes’ soon after. On review more than 165 of the deaths that Dr Bodkin Adams oversaw were seen as suspicious. The suspicion was not a well kept secret amongst staff at Eastbourne Hospital, most of the nurses had voiced their concerns to their superiors. They were believed to have been ignored on purpose, as the newly founded NHS was considered to be under political threat and a scandal that could see a general practitioner sentenced to death was to be avoided at all cost. The problem was Dr Bodkin Adams just couldn’t stop himself. He was being protected by Lord Gwynne who was believed to be his secret gay lover, and was an extremely well connected politician.

Hubert Brasier would have given last rights to many of those killed by Adams, he may have even taken confession from Bodkin Adams himself, who when asked by the press if he was guilty of stealing from old women said ‘I have made my peace with God over that’. Eastbourne Hospital is where it is believed that Theresa May’s mother Zaidee Mary Barnes met Hubert Brasier for the first time. Hubert was 11 years her senior and Zaidee had already been diagnosed with MS, and was a regular visitor to Eastbourne Hospital. Whether or not in the 1950’s society it was considered appropriate for a celibate hospital chaplain to marry a patient, that is what happened in 1955. Zaidee and Hubert were married in Reading in front of Zaidee’s father Reginald James Barnes whose profession is recorded in the wedding certificate as a ‘Traveller’. On October 1st 1956 Theresa Brasier was born in Eastbourne hospital. The following year Dr John Bodkin Adams would be acquitted of murder in a trail that was an obvious cover up, however he was convicted on 8 counts of forging a prescription, 4 counts of making false statements on cremation forms, and 3 offences under the Dangerous Drugs Act 1951. He would be temporarily struck of the NHS, only to be reinstated in 1961 when the proverbial dust had settled.

As chaplain of Eastbourne Hospital Hubert was under the Chichester Diocese of the Church of England.

During the 1960’s til the 1990’s this diocese has some of the worst examples of child sexual abuse committed by priests. The numbers and the scope of the phenomenon is truly astounding.

Hubert Brasier, Theresa May’s father joined the priests at the Community of the Resurrection Seminary School in Mirfield, West Yorkshire. In years to come the Community of the Resurrection would become known for the systematic sexual abuse of children at the seminary by the Italian Verona brothers, who were rampant sex offenders in the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Alesha Racine wrote to Lord Carey in 1992 after discovering her abuser had returned to the church where she had been sexually assaulted.

On Monday Lord Carey announced his resignation as an honorary bishop.

A review by Dame Moira Gibb found he had failed to pass on information about abuse carried out by Bishop Peter Ball.

Ms Racine’s abuser, Michael Walsh, was convicted of five indecent assault charges and confessed to sexual relationships with a further eight children.

He was sent to prison in 1990.

He had been a teacher, a lay vicar at Chichester Cathedral and also ran a choir at a church in Chichester.

Child abuse ‘inevitable’

After his release in 1992, Walsh returned to the same church to be part of the choir.

Concerned for the safety of other girls, in July of that year Ms Racine wrote to the then Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, requesting his help.

 

Speaking after Lord Carey’s resignation, Ms Racine, 54, said: “I was very concerned that my abuser had just come out of prison and it appeared that he’d just gone straight back into the parish church where he’d originally worked, and was again in a position of authority in the choir there where young children – specifically girls – sang.

“I was really worried that these girls were at a huge risk. I felt it was inevitable that children would be abused.”

Three months after writing her letter she was told Lord Carey had been unable to consider her concerns because he was “committed to a series of visits overseas, together with his summer break”.

‘Duty of forgiveness’

She was informed one month later that the “Archbishop had been assured that there was no question of Michael Walsh being reinstated in the choir,” but nine months after raising her concerns she received a letter from the Archbishop’s chief of staff confirming her abuser was back in the choir.

Lambeth Palace wrote to Ms Racine saying the parish authorities had taken “great care” in coming to their decision to allow Walsh’s return to his position “weighing carefully the risk of re-offending against… the Christian duty of forgiveness”.

The letters revealed Lord Carey regretted the decision which allowed Alesha’s abuser back into churches and offered her his sympathies.

Ms Racine said: “I thought his response was deeply hurtful, in that it had taken me a lot of courage to write to him at all.

“Most of what he said was in defence of the Church and the people in it, rather than try to reach out to me as a victim.

“I do feel it was a complete failure on his part.”

A spokesman for the former Archbishop of Canterbury said the correspondence with Ms Racine had been conducted on Lord Carey’s behalf by his chief of staff.

He said: “Lord Carey has absolutely no memory of this chain of correspondence or these events. He cannot therefore comment.”

The former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey has resigned after a review into child abuse.

Lord Carey has now left his last remaining formal role in the church.

He was criticised in an independent review of the church’s handling of abuse carried out by Bishop Peter Ball.

In 2015, Peter Ball, the former Bishop of Lewes and Gloucester from Somerset, was jailed for 32 months for sexually abusing boys and young men.

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

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

Collusion: Secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Moira Gibb Report on the Church of England and convicted paedophile Bishop Ball:

 

 

Chris Stacey @chrisstacey1

He’s one of the gatekeepers I’ve seen campaigning in Lords to clear name of another Bishop Bell from 1950s. Children don’t feature at all

We cannot allow the Bishop Ball story to be put to bed! Ball’s links to paedophiles and royalty with links to paedos warrants scrutiny!

Not passing on information re. Bishop Ball was a criminal act on the part of ‘Lord’ Carey. What are the consequences?
How did ‘Lord’ Carey, a man who actively protected an evil paedophile bishop, make it to the top of CoE? Or have I answered my own question?

Bishop Peter Ball, convicted, to Enoch Powell, fascist and alleged satanist and child abuser:

Oh, just remind me again who were Enoch’s two aides and buddies! Ah, yes. Proctor and Denby!

Peter Ball sending the love of God to Enoch and Pam! What a mistake!

Further evidence of close relationship between godly convict Bishop Ball and ‘Rivers of Blood’ Enoch:

Interesting that Enoch Powell corresponded both with Ball and Montagu who were both let off the hook by Skelhorn.
Can you see what it is yet?
Rev Peter Ball was one of many to correspond with Enoch. Others included Atkinson friend Tonypandy, another alleged abuser.
In 1993 the CPS agreed to issue Ball with a caution, rather than prosecute, after the personal intervention of then-Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey.

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.

Elders of Cape Town church expel alleged abuser John Smyth

09 June 2017

JOHN SMYTH, the Evangelical Christian camp leader accused of savagely beating young men during the 1970s and ’80s in his garden shed (News, 13 April), has been formally expelled from his church in South Africa, where he now lives.

In a lengthy statement, the elders of Church-on-Main, Cape Town, where Mr Smyth and his wife, Anne, have worshipped since 2013, announced that the Smyths would be “excommunicated, with all its scriptural implications”, because of Mr Smyth’s refusal to engage with the church leadership about the allegations.

The statement explains that the church was aware that some had criticised Mr Smyth’s holiday-camp ministry in Zimbabwe when he first joined Church-on-Main, four years ago, but had been assured that this was nothing more than jealousy at the ministry’s success.

Last September, however, the church elders found out that Mr Smyth was regularly meeting young men from Church-on-Main at a sports club, playing squash before showering together and then questioning them about “pornography, masturbation, and other sexual matters”.

They then discovered that Mr Smyth’s Zimbabwe camps had been involved in a court case. The elders’ statement said, however, that whenever they attempted to discuss the matter with Mr Smyth, he became defensive, and attacked the elders’ leadership of the church.

After the allegations first surfaced in the UK in February (News, 10 February), the elders said that they had urged Mr Smyth to return to the UK to work with the police, and told him not to attend Church-on-Main meetings or contact any other church members.

Because he has refused to engage with the leaders, or follow their advice, he has now been excommunicated from the church, the statement says.”

Our counsel has always been for John to present himself to the UK authorities for whatever consequences he could face, admitting, if necessary, to any accusation that holds substance, and to apologise, asking for forgiveness and mercy,” it says.”

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

Channel 4 News, which first broke the story in February, has broadcast new details that appear to suggest that the Archbishop of Canterbury continued to be involved with Iwerne Trust camps at the same time as Mr Smyth.

Archbishop Welby was a dormitory officer at the holiday camps in the late 1970s, when Mr Smyth was one of the leaders. A statement from Lambeth Palace, issued after the Channel 4 programme, said that the Archbishop had worked with Mr Smyth, but that no one had discussed the allegations with him.”

I was completely unaware of any abuse,” the Archbishop told LBC radio in February. “I never heard anything at all, at any point. I never had the slightest suspicion that there was anything going on.”

Last week, Channel 4 News reported that the Archbishop’s name appeared on a speaker roster for an Iwerne Trust camp in 1979, as did Mr Smyth’s, and he remained on the camps’ mailing list, despite then living in France.

Archbishop Welby denied that these documents implied that he was connected to Mr Smyth. “I left to work and live in Paris in 1978 — as I understand it, a year before the abuse was to begin — and did not return to work in the UK until 1983,” he said in a statement this week.”

As I have previously stated, I was not one of the inner circle of people surrounding John Smyth, or in the leadership of the camps. A talk on reading the Bible, which I did as a one-off in 1979, does not make anyone a member of an ‘inner circle’.”

A spokeswoman for the Archbishop declined to comment on Mr Smyth’s expulsion from Church-on-Main.

methinks Welby doth ‘protest too much’




Canon Gordon Rideout who was the Vicar of All Saints in Eastbourne was jailed for ten years for 36 separate offences on 16 children between 1962 and 1973. Peter Ball, former Bishop of Lewes was convicted of abuse in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Former priest Keith Wilke Denford of Burgess Hill and organist Michael Mytton were convicted of historic sexual abuse. Vickery House, a former Brighton priest was also convicted along with the former Vicar of Brede, Roy Cotton. Former Vicar of St Barnabas in Bexhill was charged and convicted of historic allegations amongst many others. But Father Hubert Brasier was about to be offered a fantastic opportunity that would take him from the Chichester Diocese.

In 1959, Theresa May’s father, Hubert Brasier was installed as the 1st Vicar of Enstone with Heythrop, deep in the Diocese of Oxford. This cannot be understated, it was quite an achievement.Only 4 miles from Chipping Norton this was a sought after location and Hubert would have been the envy of many men of the Anglican-Catholic cloth. Hubert is approaching his mid forties and it may be time to permanently settle for the sake, and sanity of his family. He lives the quiet life in Enstone for 11 years with only records of baptisms, funerals, and weddings to note his existence. In 1970 Hubert is moved to be Vicar of Wheatley in Oxfordshire as Zaidee’s condition was worsening and he was no spring chicken anymore.

On October 12, 1981, Hubert was killed in a car accident on his way to a service at a local church in nearby Forest Hill. His Morris Marina edged out of a central reservation and in front of an oncoming Range Rover driven by a chartered surveyor named Desmond Hampton. Hubert Brasier died of head and spinal injuries sustained in the crash soon after, Zaidee would pass away months later. The Oxfordshire Coroner Nicholas Gardiner recorded a verdict of accidental death.

The Cover Ups

So there is the life of Hubert Brasier, it doesn’t seem like there’s is much to see. Yet just after Theresa May took over at No.10 her campaign team started to request the deletion of web addresses linked to Hubert Brasier. If you were to go to Wikipedia and type in Hubert Brasier there will be no results. I first realised that he had once had a Wiki entry when I found a version of it in French, and then one in Spanish. Any researcher has the wonderfully named ‘Wayback Machine’ to help them nowadays. You can go to the archive and find pages that have been deleted, only if you can work out the original web address. In this case you can copy and paste the Wikipedia page address and add Hubert_Brasier to the end. You will see Hubert’s Wiki page in all its former glory from a snapshot archived on 17th July 2016. For some reason the people around May, or May herself, do not want you looking into the history of Hubert Brasier. After researching Hubert’s life I came across many pages that had been removed, links to nowhere, and a few conspiracy theories too. On investigation of Hubert’s Wiki entry there is nothing damning present. It’s not a large entry, it covers only the basics, so why would you want it removed? The only important information it seems to contain is Hubert’s placements within the Church of England, and that he’s Theresa May’s father.

On 8th July 2014, Theresa May as Home Secretary, oversaw the appointment of Baroness Butler-Sloss to the inquiry set up to investigate child sexual abuse by prominent politicians and clergy in the previous decades. Within 6 days of the announcement of Baroness Butler-Sloss as chair, she was forced to stand down for obvious conflicts of interest. Theresa May had selected somebody whose brother was Attorney General during some of the periods being investigated. Later the same year May chose the then Lord Mayor of London, Fiona Woolf, to chair the inquiry. Fiona Woolf had to stand down when it became apparent that she had lived near Leon Brittan, who had also been accused of alleged sexual abuse. She recalled sending him and his wife a dinner invite at around the time of the accusations. It was almost as if Theresa May was sabotaging the inquiry with no regard for the victims who still required answers.

 

On 4th February 2015, May announced that Dame Lowell Goddard, a New Zealand High Court judge, would be taking over as chair. But a month after Theresa May became Prime Minister, in August 2016, the new Home Secretary Amber Rudd announced the resignation of Dame Lowell Goddard. Soon after her resignation it was announced that one of the existing panel members, Professor Alexis Jay, became the chair. But now the inquiry has faced serious and obvious questions about its credibility.

To get things so badly wrong must be almost impossible. Theresa May never seemed to meet any of her immigration targets as Home Secretary, and it is truly hard to name her recorded achievements whilst she has been in office. But the inquiry into child sexual abuse seems to be something Theresa May does not want to face. My thoughts are that the investigation will focus on Tory MP’s who frequented the infamous Elm Guest House, but also the Diocese of Chichester, once the ecumenical home of her Father Hubert Brasier. So what is it that you fear Mrs May? The truth about your colleagues, or is it something much closer to home? Maybe May is terrified of people connecting her with the name Brasier?

I have done my best to build an accurate jigsaw from all the pieces I could locate, but it may need a different set of eyes to see the real picture.

John Bodkin Adams was a British general practitioner, convicted fraudster and suspected serial killer. Between 1946 and 1956, more than 160 of his patients died in suspicious circumstances. Of these, 132 left him money or items in their wills.


John Bodkin Adams was charged with killing his patients in 1950s and relieving them of their money.

Dr John Bodkin Adams the smooth-talking widow-friendly suspected serial killer linked to 163 deaths

HE was the attentive doctor who relied on grateful late patients to bequeath cash and even a Rolls, but when yet another wealthy widow died suddenly, the detectives came knocking.

 

The strange case of Dr John Bodkin Adams

He is known as the serial killer who got away with it.

The case of Dr John Bodkin Adams was a worldwide sensation in 1950s. The portly general practitioner lived and worked in the south coast English seaside town Eastbourne and he had a reputation for being a particularly attentive doctor, especially to elderly wealthy widows.

As a young man from Ulster, Ireland, Adams answered an ad to join a firm of Christian GPs in Eastbourne, England, in 1922. He did not come with the best of skills having just scraped through his medical degree. But Adams was a deeply religious man and many believe it was this façade of respectability and devoutness that allowed him to go unchecked for almost 30 years, ‘relieving’ wealthy widows of their pain and their money.

He had also graduated from riding a scooter around town to a chauffeured limousine. In fact, Adams had a practice of referring his wealthy widow clients to London consultants, even accompanying them to the city in his Rolls Royce.

Adams received money from over 300 wills and was left property, jewels, silverware and the luxury cars he so loved. The sums were significant for the time. In 1936 he was left £7000 by one Eastbourne widow. The relatives contested the will but Adams won in court and pocketed the money, which would be equivalent to more that $250,000 today.

Dr Bodkin Adams, a 57-year-old Ulster-born bachelor, was president of the Eastbourne Y.M.C.A. He taught Sunday school.

And he was the Chief Constable’s personal physician …

Canon Gordon Rideout was the vicar of All Saints Church in Eastbourne for 25 years.

Clergyman Canon Gordon Rideout was chaplain at Moira House School, Eastbourne, until 2003, and chairman of governors at Bishop Bell C of E School in Eastbourne until November 2011.

Clergyman Canon Gordon Rideout was a serial sex offender who preyed on young children across the south of England.

In 2013, Rideout, 74, was jailed for 10 years at Lewes Crown Court after being convicted of two attempted rapes and 34 indecent assaults on 16 boys and girls

In the 1970s Canon Gordon Rideout was taken to a military court on child sex-abuse charges.

At that time Rideout was chaplain on a military base.

In 2013, RevRobert Coles, of Eastbourne, was jailed for eight years for sex offences against young boys.

Rev Roy Cotton, who abused at least ten boys from Eastbourne, had a conviction for assaulting a choirboy when he was ordained in 1966.

Dr John Bodkin Adams

Dr John Bodkin Adams lived in Eastbourne.

Dr Adams was reportedly part of a large ring of top gay men.

Dr. Adams, ‘probably the richest doctor in England’ had as his patients Lord Burghley, Admiral Robert Prendergast, the 10th Duke of Devonshire, and Eastbourne’s Chief Constable Richard Walker.

In the spring of 1956, Lady Dorothy Macmillan’s brother, the Duke of Devonshire ‘dropped dead’ in front of his doctor, Dr. John Bodkin Adams .
Dr Adams was arrested in connection with the deaths of a number of his patients.

During the Adams committal hearing in January 1957, Hartley Shawcross was seen dining with Adams’s suspected lover, Sir Roland Gwynne (Mayor of Eastbourne from 1929 to 1931), and the Lord Chief Justice, Rayner Goddard, at a hotel in Lewes, near Eastbourne.
There is suspicion of a cover-up.
Dr Adams was acquitted.

John Bodkin Adams was ‘a member of the homosexual underground’ and close to Sir Anthony Blunt and Lord Goodman.
The police acquired a memorandum belonging to a Daily Mail journalist, concerning stories of homosexuality between “a police officer, a magistrate, and a doctor”.
The doctor was said to be Adams.

The ‘magistrate’ was Sir Roland Gwynne, Mayor of Eastbourne from 1929 to 1931 and brother of Rupert Gwynne, MP for Eastbourne from 1910 to 1924.

The ‘police officer’ was the Deputy Chief Constable of Eastbourne, Alexander Seekings.

“Harold Macmillan, and the then Attorney General, Reginald Manningham-Buller, were both related to one of Dr Adams’ likely victims….
“A homosexual relationship existed between Adams and a powerful local politician, who had protected him for over thirty years.”

Who ‘directs’ May ?

Wheatley villagers remember Mrs May teaching Sunday school classes and regularly attending religious services in her father’s church. While a student at Oxford university, she even found time to attend the annual meeting of the parochial church council chaired by her father.

Theresa May  was a good speaker at the Union and an active member of another student debating group, the Edmund Burke Society, which in her last year she chaired, presiding over proceedings

her boyfriend and future husband — two years her junior — who attracted attention as a potential rising political star. Philip May was the toast of the debating chamber, a friend of Benazir Bhutto, the future Prime Minister of Pakistan who was to be assassinated in 2007.

It was Benazir who introduced Philip to Theresa at a Conservative association disco — he the centre of much attention, she the barely-noticed ex-grammar schoolgirl and vicar’s daughter.

Theresa May and the ‘missing’ child sex abuse files

Over the past week, Theresa May’s tenure and competence as Home Secretary has come under increased scrutiny, particularly in regards to the issue of police cuts and national security.

However, in the week that Britons go to the polls, we consider another aspect of her past record which calls into question her competency, or perhaps lack of.

Investigation into historic child abuse claims
In February 2013, then Home Office permanent secretary, Mark Sedwill, commissioned an investigation into a collection of documents relating to historic child abuse cases dating from 1979–1999.

Sedwill quickly discovered that 114 potentially relevant files were missing, presumed lost or destroyed.

Among these documents there is believed to have been a dossier which was passed to Lord Brittan by the late Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens.

Whilst Home Secretary, Theresa May tasked NSPCC head, Peter Wanless, to review the Sedwill investigation, and look into the Home Office failings.

Theresa May has since admitted that there “might have been” a cover-up at the Home Office in the 1980s concerning allegations that politicians were involved in child sex abuse. However, she stated that an official review found that the claim was “not proven”.

Nevertheless, The Wanless report concluded that “shambolic” record keeping at the Home Office meant a definite answer could not be given either way. Though the files remained missing, it claimed that no one person could be directly connected to the allegations.

Former child protection manager Peter McKelvie claimed that at least 20 prominent people in Westminster had abused children. There was the suggestion that they used children’s homes as a “supply line” but this is yet to be substantiated.

Ex-child protection officer Peter McKelvie who resigned as an adviser to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).
Ex-child protection officer Peter McKelvie who resigned as an adviser to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).

Mr McKelvie discovered potential links between paedophiles and the government when he was assisting police in investigating convicted paedophile and founding member of twisted organisation PIE (Paedophile Information Exchange), Peter Righton.

According to McKelvie, amongst evidence seized from Righton’s home in 1992 there was a haul of documents pointing to a “very well organised paedophile network”, dating as far back as the 1950s and 1960s.

Several police operations into child sex abuse are still ongoing, including Operation Fairbank and Operation Fernbridge—a probe into up to 40 MPs involved or complicit in child abuse—and others investigating particular children’s homes and authorities.

Allegations of child murders and sinister orgies in the Dolphin Square flats complex in Westminster have also surfaced during the course of these investigations.

A paedophile ring is said to have been run by a “powerful elite” including not only MPs, but also ministers and an even larger number of people aware of its existence; people that could have stopped it, yet did nothing.

Jackie Malton, the former detective chief inspector with the Metropolitan Police, said: “There is clear evidence that something was happening […] Either the police disbelieved it, or they covered it up one way or another.”

Vishambar Mehrotra, a retired magistrate, believes his son was murdered 33 years ago and fell prey to one of these rings. The skull and several rib bones of Vishal, 8, were discovered in 1982 by pigeon shooters in remote marshland at Durford Abbey Farm, at Rogate, close to the Hampshire-West Sussex border.

Just why police and prosecutors failed to tackle these claims, many of which emerged years ago, remains an enduring question.

In July 2014, Clive Driscoll, a former senior Metropolitan police officer, claimed he was moved from his post after revealing plans to investigate politicians over claims of child abuse alleged to have taken place in children’s homes in the ’80s.

In an internal meeting in 1998, he revealed the names of suspects he intended to investigate. Soon after, he was taken off the case. He told the BBC his inquiry was “all too uncomfortable to a lot of people”.

Investigative journalist Don Hale also referenced an incident in which former Employment Secretary Barbara Castle handed him a dossier containing sexual abuse allegations in the 1980s. He claimed that his home was later raided by Special Branch, the file confiscated, and threats of imprisonment followed.

At this stage, it may be worth bearing in mind the words of Conservative Whip, Tim Fortescue, when discussing ‘Dirt books’ in 1995: “It might be a scandal involving small boys… they’d come and ask if we could help”.

The current whereabouts of the dossier remains unknown.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission have since launched an inquiry into 14 different claims of police and establishment cover-ups. One deals with dropped criminal allegations against a politician during a child abuse investigation in south London, another into the suspected Dolphin Square ring and the dissolution of the case due to officers being “too near prominent people”.

For two Home Secretaries to have ‘lost’ material of such a serious and consequential nature is, of course, alarming. However, when one of those Home Secretaries goes on to become our Prime Minister, any chance of ever winning justice for children, like 8 year-old Vishal Mehrotra, tragically appears more distant than ever.

DPP get report on Paedophile Information Exchange says Scotland Yard on 24 August 1983

 

PIE – Harman

In August 1983, a Scottish headmaster, Charles Oxley, handed over a dossier about PIE to Scotland Yard after infiltrating the group, the Glasgow Herald wrote. He said the group had about 1,000 members.

But the NCCL continued to defend having PIE as a member.

As late as September 1983, an NCCL officer was quoted in the Daily Mail saying the group was campaigning to lower the age of consent to 14. “An offiliate [sic] group like the Paedophile Information Exchange would agree with our policy. That does not mean it’s a mutual thing and we have to agree with theirs.”

How much did Harman and her husband the MP Jack Dromey knew about the group during their time working at the National Council for Civil Liberties, now Liberty, in the late 1970s. PIE was affiliated to the NCCL from the late 1970s to early 1980s.

Lord Justice Fulford was revealed to have been a founder of a ‘defence committee’ for the Paedophile Information Exchange while it was openly calling for the age of consent to be cut to just four.

He discussed holding courtroom protests at meetings with PIE chairman Tom O’Carroll – who was jailed for two years in 1981 for conspiracy to corrupt public morals – and wrote articles claiming O’Carroll’s trial was an ‘act of oppression’ because the child sex campaigners only wanted to ‘make friends’.

2017 Theresa May appoints Judge Fulford:

Press release

Investigatory Powers Commissioner appointed: Lord Justice Fulford

The Prime Minister has approved the appointment of Lord Justice Fulford as the first Investigatory Powers Commissioner.

Judge Adrian Fulford – Can we trust him?

Judge Fulford

Judge Fulford presided over Roger Laing 2015 Oct 2 Court of Appeal  [7] No aspersions are being made about whether the right decision was made in this particular case of child abuse.

However the appeal brought to mind that Judge Fulford was accused in 2014 by the Mail of backing the Paedophile Information Exchange PIE and being in groups that supported it. High Court judge and the child sex ring: Adviser to Queen was founder of paedophile support group to keep offenders out of jail [8]

He has apologised for some of his links but says he has no memories of others, states the Guardian,  Judge apologises for involvement with NCCL group linked to PIE [9]

The Mail on Sunday states “But he said he had “no memory” of being a founder member of the Conspiracy Against Public Morals, which the Mail continues was set up to defend PIE leaders facing criminal charges.”

An official investigation by the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office took place by Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore. It concluded on 18 June 2014, that the allegations against Fulford were “without substance” and he “was not and had never been a supporter of PIE or its aims”. Following his exoneration, Fulford resumed sitting as a judge on the full range of appeals [10]

Unfortunately the Ministry of Justice and the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office have not been transparent about the investigation.

They issued a dismissive press statement [11a] and below, stating that Fulford was exonerated after after two “lengthy” interviews with “searching questions” put to him by fellow Justice, Justice Lord Kerr, a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom to which Adrian Fulford reponded!

 

How much easier if their names were given as well..

Just for information the Lord Chief Justice was Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, who is John Thomas, Baron Thomas of Cwmgiedd [18] and without the titles just plain John Thomas. The Lord Chancellor was just plain Chris Grayling  [19]. Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore turns out to be Brian Kerr, Baron Kerr of Tonaghmore or just plain Brian Kerr [20]

The Ministry of Justice has refused to publish a copy of the report on grounds of confidentiality and personal information [11b]. They even took the statement down from their website after a year as revealed by this FOI request [11]

Whilst the Mail group is often gossip from the gutter, the MOJ statement, undated and unsigned is breathtaking in its arrogance. It does not even address the issue of group that Adrian Fulford is supposed to have founded – “Conspiracy against Public Morals” which supported PIE.

It is not denied that Fulford (Adrian) was there at the third meeting on 11 Sept 1979 nor even that he founded the group. In October 1979 the Mail says Fulford wrote a full-page article in gay rights magazine Broadsheet, in which he was described as ‘the founder’ of the PIE support group.

Among those also attending the 11 Sept meeting were Sandy Marks and Tim Brown.

Sandy Marks and Tim Brown were both members of the radical Fallen Angels collective who according to Charlotte Russell, the pre-eminent researcher in this field, “the Fallen Angels took it upon themselves to call the Gay Movement to account, their final three sentences underlined concluding their case” [16]

  • “The question is whether gay complicity in the oppression of children and pedophiles is to persist”
  • “The ILGA must acknowledge adult-child relations as crucial to the development of a coherent sexual politics.”
  • “We demand the right to form alternative relations with kids – on their terms, and to affirm the erotic in those relations.”

Tim Brown wrote “Show me an adult who is not a paedophile…Sex with children is wonderful… Children are wonderful they should not be subjected to any kind of guilt trip or legal shit about their bodies and their sexuality. It is theirs and nobody else’s.” Tim Brown, London N19 [16]

Sandy Marks chaired the Islington social services committee during the children’s homes scandal of the 1990s, attended a conference with a radical pro-paedophile activist group called Fallen Angels in 1980.

Her other paedophilic  links are explored in this article Islington kids’ homes scandal: Shame of ex-mayor Sandy Marks’ pro-paedophile past [17]

These articles by Ms Russell confirm the agenda of the Fallen Angels and much else

  • CONSPIRACY AGAINST PUBLIC MORALS: PAEDOPHILIA & PUBLIC MORALS (OCTOBER 1980) [13] 
  •  IGA Conference April 1980: The Fallen Angels take PIE’s fight to Barcelona  [14]
  • Little Angels? A letter to Socialist Challenge from Fallen Angel Tim Brown (October 1979) [15]
  • Fallen Angels: Paedophilia – Summary Submission to the ILGA Conference, Barcelona 1980 [16]
  • Islington kids’ homes scandal: Shame of ex-mayor Sandy Marks’ pro-paedophile past [17] 

“.. Islington had become a focal point for the politicisation of paedophilia,” said Ms Russell.

Although Adrian Fulford is reported as saying that Tom O’Carrolls presence ‘left me feeling extremely uncomfortable’, he does not mention that the Fallen Angels made him feel at all queasy.

Sandy Marks has said various things about the time, one of which is she cannot remember events of this time due to illness. Islington Council have said they are shocked and that there will be an investigation by a “top lawyer”. It is not clear who the “top” lawyer is, or how “top” they will be, whether the investigation has begun or when the Report will be published.

It is essential that Adrian Fulford must give evidence to this inquiry. He clearly would have first hand evidence, from the inside, of what happened at the time. Perhaps he could be “top witness”.

Clearly if someone of his position does not give evidence, then the Islington investigation cannot be remotely to be said to be a thorough investigation. It would be negligent not to.

It would also be very interesting as to what Sandy Marks might have to say about Adrian Fulford..

As long as the MOJ is secretive and dismissive, and justice is not seen to be done then there naturally will be suspicions. The public obviously do not know the detail of what was considered, but would be right to demand further information. Is it right that Judges investigate themselves and then publish the report? These Judges could even be friends.

Ministry of Justice and Child Protection Policy

Also worrying is that the Ministry of Justice does not have any child protection policy  [11c]

  1. Can you email me the Child Protection Policy of the Ministry of Justice?”

The MoJ adheres to the requirements of the Children’s Acts 1989 and 2004. To establish whether the information was held I conducted a thorough search, and made enquires within Judicial Office as well as Civil and Family Justice Policy areas.  It may help if I clarify that the information being requested is not held by MoJ because there is no legal or business requirement for MoJ to do so.  There is no MoJ wide Child Protection Policy each business area would consider the need for a specific policy given the context of the work which that area carries out.  The work of the MoJ is vast and diverse and as such one policy would not necessarily encompass the entirety of its business sufficiently and different areas of the MoJ have policies designed to address their unique needs.

Judges and Blackmail

If a Judge was a paedophile supporter it would be quite within the bounds of possibility, in fact the very MO of the “security” services that the judge was blackmailed by the deep state, the secret services. He could be put into positions of power to do the bidding of those very services. Indeed the secret services are often accused of running the child abuse networks for this very purpose.

Lord Justice Fulford, is now a Lord Justice of Appeal and as of 1 January 2016, is the Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales. He was also appointed as the Investigatory Powers Commissioner for a 3-year term on 3 March 2017 [10]

Fulford’s job is to “authorise and oversee the use of snooping powers by public authorities” [12].

Some people may still be worried that he is “authorising and overseeing” authorities who could have control over him by blackmail.

Some may be worried that as Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales, Sir Adrian Fulford has not been publicly exonerated of being free of any sinister influence over him in the public positions he holds.

Is it right that a Judicial Report about the links to paedophile and child abusing groups, of a man who is Investigatory Powers Commissioner and the Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales, is kept secret?

Shame on the murky Judicial Conduct Investigations Office and MOJ.

The Judicial Conduct Investigations Office  – a body that is supposed to investigate complaints into the judiciary.

  • Is that not extra reason for justice to be seen to be done?
  • Is that not extra reason to be transparent?
  • Is it the same old story that power breeds arrogance?
  • Is it the illusion of justice that is being propagandised to the people?
  • Are the judiciary being blackmailed by the deep state?
  • How do we know that the following is not the true scenario?

Brian had a couple of chats with his friend Adrian, perhaps at the urinals down at the club. Adrian replied. Brian told John and Chris who were in the bar, that there was nothing to it.  Squeaky clean old boy, squeaky clean. It was all dressed up as legit, titles added, committee names, hyperbole, as per, so on and so forth. Jobs a good un.

John, Chris, Brian and Adrian all know Andy. Its in the interest of national security, after all.

Apparently so is raping children….

If its not, then the Report of the Inquiry into Sir Adrian Fulford must be published.

Kincora: Ian Paisley’s dead pastor friend linked to sexual abuse of children

July 21 2010

A firebrand preacher who was a good friend of Rev Ian Paisley has been linked to the abuse of children at Kincora.

Pastor Willie Mullan took his own life in December 1980, less than a year after police started an investigation into the paedophile ring operating at the east Belfast care home for boys.

Mullan, who was never charged, had close links to William McGrath — the sinister Orange Order leader who used his role as housemaster at Kincora to sexually assault dozens of boys.

He was also friendly with Joss Cardwell, an Ulster Unionist councillor who preyed on kids at the home and who died by suicide in 1983 after being questioned by the RUC.

“There were strong rumours at the time about Willie Mullan’s involvement in Kincora, particularly as he

killed himself not long after the police investigation began,” said a religious source.

“He would have been |friendly with William McGrath and Joss Cardwell, and this added to some people’s belief that he may have been abusing boys there.”

Rev Paisley had previously described Pastor Mullan, who used to visit him during his time in Crumlin Road prison, as “a very old friend and dearly beloved brother of Christ”.

Bishop names Enoch Powell in paedophile ring, satanic worship scandal

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/uk/bishop-names-enoch-powell-in-paedophile-ring-satanic-worship-scandal-31103957.html

The DUP have strong historical links with Loyalist paramilitary groups.

When Enoch Powell was expelled from the Tory party after his fascist turn, he moved to Northern Ireland. There, his campaign manager was a young man named Jeffrey Donaldson, who says on his website:

“I worked alongside two of the greatest names in Unionism in the 20th century. Between 1982 and 1984 I worked as Enoch Powell’s constituency agent, successfully spearheading Mr. Powell’s election campaigns of 1983 and 1986 when the South Down seat was retained despite the fact the constituency contained a natural ‘nationalist’ majority.”

Their most famous politician was Ian Paisley, one of the founders of the party, who entered the Good Friday Agreement with their long standing rivals Sinn Fein which led to peace in Northern Ireland and a period of stability.

Anyone confirm that boys were supplied to Lord Louis Mountbatten at County Sligo Lodge (No 355) ?

When the still, mostly classified (due to allegations that boys were supplied to Lord Louis Mountbatten’s ‘bloodsports’ lodge in County Sligo), selective investigation into Kincora in 1981 revealed that McGrath was not only a notorious paedophile, but also a paedophile pimp to the British establishment. Tara was effectively finished as an organisation. The investigation also revealed that McGrath set-up and administered Kincora as a centre for raping young boys and among McGrath’s well connected circle included John McKeague (founder of the Red Hand Commandos), as well as other prominent politicians and political personalities in England such as Sir Anthony Blunt (a third cousin of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the late Queen Mother and once named as the ‘most dangerous woman in Europe’ by none other than Adolf Hitler), along with Sir Knox Cunningham (the Queen’s Counsel). Both members of the Cambridge scene of political research and development operations.

He knew people who were very powerful.  If McGrath had been unmasked at an early stage, Blunt would have been named as a paedophile and no one could have been sure who else would possibly be named.  There were top hats and royalty in that circle.

Ulsterman first to get Jimmy Savile cash: Victim receives £15,000 from BBC after being groomed by notorious TV star

The victim was in a care home in 1977 when he wrote to Savile, telling him how he had been sexually abused and would love to meet Abba or Boney M on Jim’ll Fix It.

The newspaper revealed that Savile paid for the boy to travel to the studio, but handed him to an accomplice who molested him.

The abuser, only known as ‘Brian’, started to sexually molest the victim and later drove him to an exclusive club in Pall Mall, London.

“At this house (the club) Brian abused me and a much smaller boy aged between seven and nine who looked very poorly and thin and was also being abused by a very obese man,” he said.

He believes he was drugged there before being abused, and woke up the next morning facing the other boy. However, he had no recollection of being abused by Savile himself.

He said Savile later made him a packed lunch, handed him £5 and sent him back home to Northern Ireland.

RUC didn’t treat Jimmy Savile abuse claim seriously

March 12 2013

The RUC did not treat a complaint from a victim of Jimmy Savile properly, a damning report reveals today.

 

It is one of eight police forces across the UK that have come under fire for ignoring Savile’s abuse victims as it emerged the disgraced presenter could have been stopped as early as 1964.

Inspectors said there is a “distinct possibility” that officers could fail to prevent another Savile-like scandal from happening.

In its 60-page report, Mistakes Were Made, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) suggested some victims whose complaints weren’t formally recorded were dealt with brusquely.

Eight victims had claimed that they tried unsuccessfully to report crimes – four who approached the Met, and one each who went to police in Cheshire, Merseyside, West Yorkshire and the then RUC, now the PSNI.

Last night a PSNI spokeswoman said: “PSNI have engaged the HMIC review and sought to provide inspectors with as much information as possible.

“We have now received the final report and will give full consideration to its findings and recommendations.”

No further details about the allegation made to the RUC are included in the report.

HMIC said: “We have concerns about the extent to which victims may have tried to report their allegations to the police… and, for whatever reason, were not treated as they should have been.”

It concluded: “We consider the failure to connect the various allegations was critical to the eventual outcome of the investigations. There was intelligence available of four separate investigations which was never linked together and, because of that failure to ‘join the dots’, there was a failure to understand the potential depth of Savile’s criminality.”

Just five allegations and two pieces of intelligence were recorded against Savile during his lifetime, HMIC found. This is in stark contrast to the 450 claims made against the former Top Of The Pops presenter after Operation Yewtree was launched by Metropolitan Police in October.

The earliest record uncovered by HMIC naming Savile in connection with a sexual abuse probe is dated 1964, but officers failed to act on the intelligence received.

A damning report by Met Police and NSPCC said Savile’s offending spanned from 1955 to 2009, meaning his reign of abuse could have been cut short by 45 years.

Alan Collins, a solicitor from law firm Pannone who is representing more than 40 of Savile’s victims, said further opportunities to investigate Savile were lost.

“There is a definite risk that unless policies and attitudes change, Savile will happen again,” he said.

As well as the 1964 Scotland Yard ledger, a record of an anonymous letter to the Met Police in 1998 was found, alleging that Savile was a paedophile.

One man who came forward in 1963 in Cheshire to allege rape against Savile was told to “forget about it” and “move on”, HMIC said.

Another went to Vine Street police station in London to report that his girlfriend was assaulted at a recording of Top Of The Pops and was warned that he “could be arrested for making such allegations” and sent away.

HM Inspector of Constabulary Drusilla Sharpling said: “The findings in this report are of deep concern, and clearly there were mistakes in how the police handled the allegations made against Savile during his lifetime.”

Considering whether such abuse on a similar scale could happen again, Ms Sharpling said it is neither “enough nor correct to say this couldn’t happen now”.

The HMIC report said that “the inconsistencies in approach that the forces have taken mean that there is a distinct possibility that such failures could be repeated”.

The 1964 intelligence record naming Savile also contains the first known reference to Duncroft School, the children’s home in Staines, Surrey.

Police had evidence of sexual abuse involving Duncroft pupils but “lost sight” of this intelligence until last year, HMIC said.

The next occasion Duncroft became known to police, in the context of allegations made against Savile, was in 2007 when Surrey Police commenced their investigation.

Jimmy Savile during a sponsored charity walk in Belfast on the Ravenhill Road in November 1976

A Northern Ireland woman who was befriended by Sir Jimmy Savile has said she is shocked and disgusted by claims that he was a predatory sex abuser.

Mrs Craig, who befriended Savile through her work with the Disabled Police Officers’ Association of Northern Ireland (DPOA), said: “I find it quite unbelievable — this is definitely not the man that I knew.”

Rosemary Craig, a “great friend” of the presenter, described the allegations as unbelievable and not in keeping with the man she knew.

Her husband, an ex-RUC officer, was severely injured after being shot by the IRA. She has done a lot of work with the DPOA.

She added: “Jimmy was a great friend and helped with the disabled police officers’ charity.

“He was the very first person to help me. At the time there was very little being done for disabled police officers.

“I wrote a letter to Jimmy Savile and he immediately responded. He sent me the money to fly over with a disabled officer and got him a new lightweight wheelchair. He put me on to Richard Branson who brought a Virgin aeroplane into Northern Ireland and took 375 disabled officers, their helpers and families to Florida for a holiday. All down to Jimmy Savile.”

Kincora opened on Belfast’s Upper Newtownards Road, close to Stormont’s Parliament Buildings, in May 1958 and closed October 1980 in the aftermath of the sex abuse scandal.
In 1981, three senior care workers were jailed – one of whom, William McGrath, was believed to have been an MI5 agent.

Johnnie Savile & Richmond

Johnnie Savile

Johnnie Savile was the brother of the notorious predatory paedophile and necrophiliac, Jimmy.  By all accounts, Johnnie traded in on his brother’s fame. The consensus is that he was insignificant, but from what I have seen, he was far from it.  Johnnie was perverse, no stranger to controversy and ‘in’ with the ‘right’ crowd.

South West London & St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust Inquiry

Despite claims in 1980 that Johnnie had assaulted one female patient and following the Jimmy Savile review, an inquiry was undertaken in 2015 by South West London & St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust in to Johnnie, which confirmed that between 1978 and 1980, he had assaulted seven women, including:

  • five patients,
  • one visitor,
  • one staff member.

In this BBC Report a victim of Johnnie Savile states how she was raped whilst at Springfield Hospital and that her attempts to report the matter were ignored.

Here is the full report of the inquiry: Report in to Johnnie Savile

Help My Appeal

A determined man is 52 year old Richmond man, Johnnie Savile.

Johnnie, brother of television and radio celebrity Jimmy Savile, has taken up the challenge of raising £16,000 to pay for a new x-ray machine at Barnes Hospital.

Johnnie, who is married to Gerda and his two daughters, Maureen (20) and Diana (21), is a well known figure in Richmond as he has been raising funds for different charities in the borough for over 40 years.

I am a member of the League of Friends of the Royal Hospital and I stage discos for patients and staff’s birthdays or if a member of staff is leaving” he said.

He is a regular visitor to Lancaster House, Richmond, the home for retarded children and often brings with him games and toys. He sometimes take the children on outings.

Johnnie visits the home on behalf of the Variety Club of Great Britain, of which he has been a barker for over 20 years.

“I said I would be willing to stage a free disco at whatever school raised the most money in the sponsored walk but even that doesn’t seem to have inspired much interest”, he said.

Johnnie has however received help from one source. Children at a Home in Battersea have said they will organise a sponsored walk on behalf of the hospital.

not only was Johnnie a member of the League of Friends of Richmond Royal, he also put on the discos, had constant access to a local children’s home and was able to take the children on outings as well as connections to Barnes Hospital, the Variety Club and a care home in Battersea.  He was also doing children’s discos and local fetes.

Questions need to be answered!

Johnnie died in 1998.  Nobody seems very concerned about the level of access he had to children with disabilities and in care homes.  I think the whole situation needs to be looked at again – for the sake of the vulnerable children who I feel had been badly let down by the system.

it’s important another inquiry is carried out in to how he was allowed unfettered access to both Lancaster House and a Battersea children’s home and that Richmond upon Thames Social Services Department yet again has some very serious questions to answer.

Lucy Faithfull, Baroness Faithfull
(from Wiki):

Faithfull was born in South Africa, the daughter of a nurse and an army officer. When her father was killed in the First World War in 1916, her mother returned to England. She was educated at Bournemouth and studied then at the Sorbonne, which she financed by work in a nursery in Paris. In 1978 the University of Warwick made her an Honorary Doctor of Letters and in 1995, she also received the same degree from the Oxford Brookes University. She was elected an honorary fellow of St Hilda’s College, Oxford in 1992.

After her education Faithfull worked at Birmingham Settlement for three years until 1935 running clubs and acting as a caseworker. She entered subsequently the education department of the London County Council as a care committee organiser. During the Second World War and until 1948, she served as a regional welfare officer for the evacuee programme. In the following decade she became employed as an inspector in the children’s department of the Home Office.

Faithfull joined the Oxford City Council in 1958 as one of the first children’s officers. She was appointed its Director of Social Services in 1970, retiring four years later. In the New Year’s Honours 1972, she was awarded an Officer of the Order of the British Empire. Four years later, in 1976, Margaret Thatcher offered her a seat in the House of Lords and after an initial refusal she accepted a life peerage with the title Baroness Faithfull, of Wolvercote, in the County of Oxfordshire on 26 January. In the House, she was instrumental in the passing of the Children Act 1989. She helped to establish and from 1995 chaired the All Party Parliamentary Group for Children. She was a vociferous opponent of Home Secretary, Michael Howard’s Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill of 1994 which proposed the establishment of secure ‘training centres’ in the grounds of adult prisons for children aged between 12 and 14, arguing that locking up children is ineffective and that the huge cost of these could be better spent intervening with families at an earlier stage.

She was trustee of a number of voluntary organisations, notably the Caldecott Community, and Bessels Leigh schools. vice-president of the National Association of Voluntary Hostels from 1978 and of Barnardo’s from 1989. Faithfull supported the National Children’s Bureau (paedohile Peter Righton et al) , of which she was president. In 1993 she founded the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, which works as a child protection agency helping sexually abused children and their families. She died unmarried in London in 1996.

Trustees of the Foundation include:

Baroness Valerie Howarth, OBE (Vice-Chair)

Until July 2001, Valerie was the Chief Executive of the charity ChildLine. Under her leadership, ChildLine counselled over one million children and young people and it grew from a small London based project to the national service it is today. A social worker by background, she worked in the Family Welfare Association in Lambeth and Brent and rose to become Director of Social Services.

(In a long interview article with Wyre, published by Achilles Heel in 1992, he mentions the ‘Brent Boys’ case, in which several boys were abused in a children’s home. Coincidence?)

Dr Mike Harris, BSc MBBS FRC Psych

Dr Harris holds responsibility for high secure provision at Rampton Hospital; medium secure units at Arnold Lodge in Leicester and Wathwood Hospital in Rotherham the Community Forensic Services, including low secure beds for Nottinghamshire; Offender Health in Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire and the Trusts Capital Planning team and strategy. Dr Harris is based at Rampton Hospital. He continues to do outpatient psychiatry in the North of the county as well as assessing people for the GMC and NMC.

Miss Adrianne Jones, CBE

Now retired from paid employment and living in South Wales, Adrianne continues her involvement in social care and community matters through various charitable trusts, a housing association and a local school. Her time as a trustee of the Lucy Faithfull Foundation began in 1993 when Lucy, a former Director of Social Services, invited Adrianne to join the Board.

The majority of Adrianne’s working life was spent in local authority social services in Wales, in three London Boroughs and in Birmingham. She served on several national committees including those chaired by Peter Barclay (Role and Tasks of Social Workers) and Norman Warner (Inquiry into the selection, development and management of staff in children’s homes). She was President of the Association of Directors of Social Services in 1985. In 1994, after retiring as Director of Social Services in Birmingham, Adrianne led the Department of Health’s Support Force for Children’s Residential Care for 3 years.

A SURVIVOR of the London 7/7 bombings has claimed she was a victim of a paedophile ring masterminded by her stepfather who had links to Jimmy Savile’s older brother Johnny.

Sunday Mirror (London, England)November 25, 2012


Beverli Rhodes alleges she was raped by stepdad Patrick Rhodes at the age of 13 and passed around up to 60 of his evil cronies.

She also claims he took her to the BBC’s Wood Lane television studios in the early 1970s where she recalls being raped on three different occasions by men in dressing rooms.

And Beverli, now 51, says that she witnessed shamed DJ Savile’s brother abuse very young children at paedophile parties when she was 14 years old.

Johnny Savile was a monster. He did some truly sordid things to very young children and got off on abusing disabled children because they couldn’t get away,” Beverli told the Sunday Mirror.

He used to brag to everyone about being Jimmy Savile’s brother. He was very good friends with my stepfather Patrick who would arrange the children.”

Mum-of-four Beverli claims her stepfather held a senior position in the Freemasons and orchestrated the abuse for the paedophile ring which went on to include celebrities.

She wept: “I’ve been through so much but even the terrorist atrocity I suffered pales in comparison with what I witnessed at those parties.”

Beverli was in the crowded first carriage of a rush-hour Piccadilly Line train near King’s Cross when the 2005 explosion set off by suicide bomber Germaine Lindsay, 19, killed 26 passengers. She lost several teeth in the blast and sustained dreadful injuries to her face and head.

DEVASTATING For months afterwards she underwent multiple facial reconstruction operations – but the terrorist attack left her with devastating post-traumatic shock disorder.

Beverli has spoken publicly of her ordeal that day. But what she has never revealed, until now, is the extent to which her tormented childhood intensified her PTSD.

“I vowed never to reveal my past, not even to my children,” she confesses. “But when more and more people came forward to say Savile abused them it was time to break my silence.

“I survived but I wonder how many children now grown-up are still suffering in silence? I’d urge them to please, please come forward and speak to the police like I am.”

Beverli is in the process of making a full statement to Operation Yewtree, the Jimmy Savile investigation, about the childhood abuse that spanned six years of her life.

Her nightmare began when she was nine in 1970 at her home in Plymouth. She claims her stepfather would sell her used pants to paedophile friends for PS150 while her mum Christine was out.

“I was just a child but I knew it wasn’t right,” Beverli recalls.

She tells how her stepfather worked for a tile company in Plymouth and said that he was was high up in the Freemasons.

“He often had to go away on Masonic business or for work or charity trips.

These became a front for the abuse,” she says.

Beverli was 11 when she says her stepfather abused her.

From then on she claims she was passed around his pals like a toy.

“When I was 13 in 1974, he took my virginity,” she says

After that Beverli claims the abuse became monstrous. Not only did her stepfather rape her regularly but she claims she was raped by up to 60 other men. “Patrick even used his job as away of setting up meetings for people to have sex with me,” she says. “He would arrange a time to go to a client’s house to lay a floor.

Beverli says she stopped counting at 60. It was also around this time that Beverli claims she was first forced to attend paedophile parties.

Beverli says she attended many similar parties – sometimes twice a month – with about 10 men present and five children ranging in ages, a mix of girls and boys. But the one that sticks in her mind most was where she claims to have first met Johnny Savile.

“My stepfather was in awe of him because he had a famous brother, and they knew each other from their childhood in Yorkshire,” she says.

Johnny, five years younger than his famous brother, was sacked from Springfield Psychiatric Hospital in Tooting, South-West London, over an alleged depraved sex game.

A woman, believed to be a former patient at the hospital, complained that Johnny Savile, who died in 1998, mauled, groped and raped her. When Beverli was 14 or 15 her stepfather got a promotion and the family relocated to South Africa, but still the abuse didn’t stop.

Beverli claims it was on a business trip back to the UK that she was first taken to the BBC studios.

During the same visit back to Britain Beverli says she attended her first London paedophile party. Later on in the trip she says she spoke on the phone to a man she was told was a world famous celebrity. “Back in Plymouth I remember my stepfather handing me the phone,” she remembers. “I knew this man was speaking to him about organising a child, or children, for one of their parties. But I got the impression he was more interested in young boys.””I have been having therapy for years but my life is blighted with horrifying flashbacks and panic attacks,” says Beverli. “I wonder if anyone abused at those parties will remember me. I was introduced as Sasha or Bee. “If they do, then they’ll know what we went through and might feel brave enough to speak up about the abuse. I just want to be able to heal the horrors and move on.”

A BBC spokesperson said: “The BBC cannot comment on individual cases. It has asked that anyone with allegations of this nature should report them to the BBC investigation unit or the police directly.”

DUP welcomed sex abuser Brian Hutchinson back to party

25 January 2010

A self-confessed sex abuser has been secretly allowed back into Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) — in the latest scandal to rock the party.

Fruit farmer Brian Hutchinson, 42, was voted in as party treasurer in Armagh even though he assaulted a 15-year-old girl for more than a year.

The married dad of five sensationally quit the DUP in 2002 after his litany of abuse was exposed.

But the Sunday Life newspaper can today reveal that he is back in the organisation in a high-profile position controlling party cash.

A DUP spokesman admitted yesterday: “The Party acted on this matter in 2002.

“Mr Hutchinson withdrew from the party and his council position.

“In 2008 he rejoined the party and is the current treasurer of our Armagh branch.

“The Party will be making no further comment on this matter.”

Confirmation that Hutchinson has rejoined party ranks will be yet another blow to the DUP — still reeling over the Iris Robinson cash and sex scandal.

The revelation also comes as embattled Sinn Fein chief Gerry Adams is under fire for his handling of child abuse allegations facing his younger brother Liam.

Garden centre manager Hutchinson told us yesterday: “I’m just trying to put all that behind me and get on with party work.”

Hutchinson — whose late father Dougie helped found the DUP and was once Ian Paisley’s right-hand man — was booted out of the party in September 2002 after his teen assaults came to light.

He received a police caution for indecent assault — which involves admitting your guilt — and was put on the Sex Offenders’ Register for five years.

Hutchinson was voted in as DUP treasurer of the Armagh branch just one year after his name came off the list.

The party and Hutchinson have insisted he was not in the party in an official role until after his name was removed from the Sex Offenders’ Register.

But yesterday Hutchinson admitted he was invited to DUP bashes in Armagh before he was taken off.

He confessed: “I was at dinners at the area and DUP events from 2002 to 2008.”

Hutchinson was first suspended from the DUP in July 2001 and in 2002 quit his council seat and the party.

He said at the time: “I have decided it is best to resign for the sake of the DUP.”

The disgraced unionist said in 2002 that “no sex took place”.

But it emerged he’d been groping his 15-year-old prey for more than a year before he was rumbled.

His systematic abuse only came to light when the under-age girl finally plucked up the strength to tell her mum.

After she exposed Hutchinson, he was back behind the counter of his large nursery business in Co Armagh, which he still runs.

He had held his seat on Armagh council for nine years before he resigned.

Hutchinson succeeded his late dad when he retired from the council in 1993, after 40 years in local government.

His veteran politician father served time in Crumlin Road jail for his part in the notorious Siege of Armagh — when civil rights protestors were blocked from marching through the city centre.

Hutchinson spoke to us yesterday at his nursery, and said he did not want to comment on whether he thought it was suitable that he was back in the party.

He said he was voted back into the DUP in 2008 at the party’s Armagh annual general meeting.

Hutchinson added: “My nomination was put forward by someone, and someone else seconded it.”

When asked for the identities of the politicians who nominated him, he said: “I don’t remember who they are.”

We rang councillor Freda Donnelly to comment on his re-appointment — as she’s a DUP councillor in the Armagh City branch.

She slammed down her phone after snapping: “I have no comment to make.”

Secretive DUP Brexit donor links to the Saudi intelligence service

The shadowy donor group that gave the Democratic Unionist Party £425,000 during the Brexit referendum campaign has links to the former Director General of the Saudi intelligence service – also the father of the current Saudi Ambassador to the UK –

The donation to Arlene Foster’s party – which was used to fund key Leave campaign advertisements across the UK in the run up to the European referendum – was initially kept hidden because of Northern Ireland’s donor secrecy laws.

However, under pressure from activists after openDemocracy revealed how Brexit campaigners were funnelling dark money through Northern Ireland to fund “Take Back Control” adverts, the Democratic Unionist Party was forced last night to reveal its major donor to be a group calling itself the Constitutional Research Council.

Little is known about the Constitutional Research Council, including where it got these funds from. However, we do know one thing: it is chaired by the Scottish Conservative Richard Cook.

Cook has strong links with Saudi Arabia – which was seen by economists as a likely beneficiary from Brexit.

In 2013, Cook founded a company called Five Star Investment Management Ltd with the former head of the Saudi Arabian intelligence agency, Prince Nawwaf bin Abdul Aziz. The prince’s son is the Saudi ambassador to the UK.

Meet the Scottish Tory behind the £425,000 DUP Brexit donation

Senior Scottish Conservative Richard Cook is at the centre of a major Brexit funding scandal.


Richard Cook and David Cameron.

A modest, semi-detached house in Clarkston on Glasgow’s southside seems an unlikely source for a secretive, £425,000 donation to the Democratic Unionist Party’s Brexit campaign. But the occupant – Richard Cook – is the only person publicly connected with the Constitutional Research Council, a shadowy pro-union group that funnelled dark money to the DUP ahead of June’s EU referendum.

And Richard Cook is not just connected to Northern Irish unionism – he has links that go to the heart of the Scottish Conservative Party, the Saudi intelligence service and a notorious Indian gun running scandal.

Mr Cook is a former vice chairman of the Scottish Conservative party and Tory election candidate (for which he was fast-tracked through the selection, according to reports on ConservativeHome). He has campaigned with Ruth Davidson and David Cameron, and his Facebook friends list is a roll-call of prominent Scottish Tories.

Scottish politicians are now calling for the Scottish Tory leader to clarify her relationship with Cook, who in the 2010 general election lost out to Labour’s Jim Murphy in East Renfrewshire. Key activists in his team were subsequently found burning the EU flag and posting Northern Irish loyalist song lyrics on Twitter.

Cook is at the centre of a political scandal raging in Northern Ireland. Back in February, an openDemocracy investigation found that donors had taken advantage of Northern Ireland’s secretive electoral laws to funnel hundreds of thousands of pounds to the DUP’s pro-Brexit campaign. Under pressure, the DUP revealed that the party had received £425,622 from a group called ‘the Constitutional Research Council’. Over £32,000 of this money was spent on data analytics company AggregateIQ, a small Canadian outfit that has been linked to Donald Trump’s billionaire backer Robert Mercer and Cambridge Analytica, who are now at the heart of an investigation by the Information Commission.

We know almost nothing about the Constitutional Research Council. The outfit has no formal legal status. What we can say for sure is that it is chaired by Cook, and he has promised to fund the pro-union campaign in any future Scottish independence referendum.

“More people with more money are ready to step up to the plate this time compared with the last referendum” Cook told the Sunday Times earlier this year. He didn’t reveal who those people are.

The DUP has also refused to say who the backers behind the CRC are, and there is little to suggest that Cook himself is a major donor. Former Conservative colleagues describe Cook as “a nice guy but not a rich guy”.

Richard Cook with his “good friend” Baroness Warsi, former chairman of the Conservative Party.

Cook – who could not be contacted for this piece – appears to retain an interest in Scottish politics. He is listed as an advisor on Think Scotland, a conservative-minded website funded by Scottish unionist businessman Robert Kilgour. Think Scotland is owned by former Tory MSP Brian Monteith. Monteith was head of press during the referendum for Leave.EU, the campaign group run by Arron Banks and Nigel Farage.

Cook’s interests are not confined to politics. Since general election defeat in 2010, he has been involved in a number of international business deals. In 2012, his company Cook Consulting (UK) Ltd held a press conference in Glasgow announcing its involvement in a £640m water desalination project in Pakistan. The firm failed to submit accounts in 2014 and was dissolved by Companies House via compulsory strike-off in 2015.

In 2013, Cook founded another company called Five Star Investment Management Ltd with the former head of the Saudi Arabian intelligence agency, Prince Nawwaf bin Abdul Aziz. The prince’s son is the Saudi ambassador to the UK. The other director of the company was Peter Haestrup, a Danish national who has been connected to the Purulia arms drop case, a long-running multinational scandal that involved weapons being dropped over the Indian province of West Bengal in 1995.

Five Star Investment Management Ltd was registered at Mr Cook’s Glasgow address. The firm filed no accounts with Companies House, and was dissolved in December 2014.

Cook also has connections with right-wing pressure groups in the UK. He was Scottish spokesperson for Conservative Friends of Israel and for the Campaign Against Political Correctness, a campaign allied to the Freedom Association, a right-wing Eurosceptic pressure group that supported apartheid in South Africa.

Back in 2009, Richard Cook spoke alongside current Tory MSP Murdo Fraser at a Freedom Association fringe event at the Conservative party conference in Perth to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Margaret Thatcher’s 1979 election victory. Freedom Association Chief Executive Simon Richards later praised Cook as “one of the hardest working PPC’s (Parliamentary Prospective Candidates) anywhere in the country”.

The Freedom Association has historical links with Northern Ireland. Among its original founders was Ross McWhirter, a controversial  journalist who campaigned for strict restrictions on Irish people in Britain, including making it compulsory for all Irish people in Britain to register with the local police and to provide signed photographs of themselves when renting flats or booking into hotels and hostel. McWhirter was shot dead by the Provisional IRA in Enfield in 1975.

The Freedom Association boasts of “friendly links” with the Democratic Unionist Party. In 2007 and 2008, leading DUP politicians Jeffrey Donaldson and Sammy Wilson were involved in Freedom Association “fact finding” events in Northern Ireland. At the time, the Freedom Association said it had “taken a close interest in Ulster matters from its earliest days and is keen to strengthen its ties with the province and to demonstrate its support for the Union.” Donaldson was the chair of the DUP’s Brexit campaign – his name appeared on the election material that the CRC’s £425,000 donation paid for – and Wilson was a prominent pro-Brexit DUP voice throughout the campaign, regularly appearing in the media.

After his defeat in the 2010 general election, Richard Cook wrote: “I believe deeply in our party, its membership and in the need for a centre right party to represent the hundreds of thousands of Scots who believe in the same things we do.” Among the activists he singled out for praise during the campaign were Ross McFarlane and Colin Taylor.

McFarlane was subsequently sacked as a Holyrood assistant by Ruth Davidson in 2011 after footage emerged showing him setting fire to the EU standard while dressed in the robes of Glasgow University amid anti-Catholic taunts. McFarlane had been Davidson’s election agent. Around the same time, it was discovered that Colin Taylor had posted song lyrics on Twitter glorifying Northern Irish loyalist terrorist group, the Ulster Volunteer Force, while serving as president of the student Conservative Association from 2009 to 2010. The social media posts were picked up when Taylor was working for the Tory Press and Research Unit at Holyrood.

Commenting on Richard Cook’s involvement with the CRC, Scottish Labour General Election campaign manager James Kelly said:

“This whole affair is like something from a spy novel and the East Renfrewshire Conservative Party is at the heart of it.

“Richard Cook isn’t just someone who happened to be a member of East Renfrewshire Conservatives. He’s been a leading figure in the local Tories for more than two decades… He’s close to senior elected Tories, including Jackson Carlaw.

“It simply isn’t tenable for East Renfrewshire Tory candidate Paul Masterton to maintain silence on this. Will Mr Cook play any part in his campaign? Will he refuse to take any funds from Mr Cook or anyone who has received money from Mr Cook? Will Mr Masterton make a statement about what he knew and when about these extraordinary allegations?

“This affair now risks tainting the Tory campaign to win the East Renfrewshire seat. It’s clear that only Labour can beat the SNP here.”

An SNP spokesperson said:

“These are deeply concerning allegations The fact that we still do not know the source of such a significant amount of cash used to help bankroll the Brexit campaign is unacceptable, and cannot be allowed to continue.

“Just as concerning are the apparent links to the highest levels of the Scottish Tory party. Ruth Davidson must clarify what links she has with Mr Cook, and whether her party has helped itself to money from the same murky sources.”

The Scottish Conservatives haven’t yet got back to our request for a comment. Richard Cook could not be reached for comment.

Labour tried to do deals with the DUP last time there was a hung parliament

Under Gordon Brown, Labour had tried to strike a similar deal when there was a hung parliament in 2010.

Yvette Cooper, Shaun Woodward, Ed Miliband and Alistair Campbell were just a few of the Labour supporters or MPs to have recently criticised Theresa May for dealing with the extremely conservative, anti-abortion, anti-LGBT rights party from Northern Ireland.

However, when Brown failed to get a majority he wrote letters to the DUP asking to do a deal.

Amid criticism, former DUP leader Ian Paisley has been relishing telling everyone about Brown’s eagerness to pair up with the party.

Lambeth knew Carroll was a problem long before he was eventually dismissed. In 1986, it discovered something that should have excluded him from working with children. Carroll already had a conviction for child abuse – which he hadn’t disclosed when he had applied for a job in Lambeth. But the conviction, and his failure to disclose it, did not lead to his dismissal.

In mid-1986, three of Lambeth’s most senior officials held a secret disciplinary hearing, and decided to leave him in post.

The police even sought advice from him when they were investigating alleged child abuse in another home, South Vale.

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.

Abbott will be well aware of all the allegations against Portillo.

 

…the persistent rumors about NSPCC’s Wanless’ close friend and confidant Michael Portillo, now like Savile, a BBC TV personality, being allegedly involved in a Westminster sex scandal himself. Rumors circulated in 1994 that Portillo and another Tory Secretary of State, Peter Lilley, had got sexually involved with Britain’s first openly gay footballer, Justin Fashanu.

Unfortunately for the two secretaries of state though, a disgruntled Fashanu supposedly decided to “blow the lid,” threatening to “bring down the government” by leaking evidence of these affairs to the Daily Express. When MI5 allegedly threatened Fashanu, Tory MP Stephen Milligan, a part-time journalist, is said to have weighed in on the footballer’s behalf on a mission to get to the bottom of it all and “clean up the Tory party.”

Within days, however, Milligan was found hanged in his London flat, naked, with an orange in his mouth in an apparent suicide, made to look like he was a sexual deviant. Fashanu was swiftly sacked by his football club and got on the first flight to the United States. Several years later Fashanu was also tragically found hanged, this time in a garage in Shoreditch, London.

For more than 35 years, Corbyn, 66, the MP for Islington North since 1983, has been a close friend and political soulmate of Abbott, 61, the MP for the adjoining constituency of Hackney North.

'Magnetic attraction': Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott during a demonstration in the 1970s - around the time they became lovers
The relationship between Corbyn and Abbott went from platonic to physical in 1979.

At the time, Corbyn was about 30 and a full-time trade union official and councillor in North London, alongside his wife, who was keen to become an MP.

Having won a scholarship to Cambridge, Abbott, who was 25, had become a solicitor with the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL), which was regarded as a stepping stone to Westminster.

Harriet Harman, who was acting Labour leader until last weekend, was legal officer at the NCCL, and Patricia Hewitt, another who became a Labour Cabinet minister, was general secretary.

Listen to Ken Livingstone, former Mayor of London, talking to David Mellor on the role of M15 in the Kincora Children’s Home Paedophile scandal

Former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone knew about the Paedophiles for decades

Ken Livingstone said:-

I was raising in parliament against Mrs Thatcher the Kincora Boys Home where boys were being abused and MI5 was filming it because they were hoping to be able to blackmail senior politicians in Northern Ireland.

They were hoping to catch one of Ian Paisley’s MP’s – and they never did – and give themselves some leverage. The truth is there’s been an awful lot of covering up of paedophiles and paedophile rings for decades and decades.”

Mr. Livingstone

Will the Prime Minister take time in her busy day to reconsider the statement that she made to the House last year about Sir Maurice Oldfield? Will she consider the inconsistency of the withdrawal of his positive vetting while no action was taken against Mr. Peter England, a deputy secretary in the Northern Ireland Office, and Mr. J. L. Imrie, an assistant secretary at the Northern Ireland Office, following investigations into the buggery of young children at the Kincora boys’ home? Is she not disturbed that Mr. Imrie has taken no action against the newspaper that named him and his activities four weeks ago, although he continues to work for the Government in the Ministry of Defence? Can she assure the House that she is convinced of Mr. Imrie’s innocence?

If not, will she now finally concede a genuinely independent inquiry into what went on in the homes in Kincora, irrespective of the damage that that may do to MI5 when its role is exposed?

The Prime Minister (Margaret Thatcher)

I have nothing further to add to the statement that I made on Sir Maurice Oldfield in the House. I note that the hon. Gentleman uses the privileges of the House to name people who are unable to answer back.

http://www.margaretthatcher.org/document/107194

Sir Maurice Oldfield (1915-81) was director of MI6 from 1973 to 1978 and Ulster Security Co-ordinator 1979. He was also homosexual. We know this to be true because Margaret Thatcher was forced to make a statement on the issue on April 23rd 1987.

 

Sir Maurice Oldfield became Security Co-ordinator in Northern Ireland in October 1979. Subsequently reports were received which caused his positive vetting clearance to be reviewed. In March 1980, in the course of that review, he made an admission that he had from time to time engaged in homosexual activities. His positive vetting clearance was withdrawn. By this time he was already a sick man; he finally ceased to serve as Security Co-ordinator in Northern Ireland when a successor took over in June 1980; he died in March 1981.

There was a lengthy and thorough investigation by the Security Service, which included many interviews with Sir Maurice Oldfield himself, to examine whether there was any reason to suppose that he himself or the interests of the country might have been compromised. The conclusion was that, though his conduct had been a potential risk to security, there was no evidence or reason whatsoever to suggest that security had ever been compromised; indeed, he had contributed notably to a number of security and intelligence successes which would not have been achieved had there been a breach of security. That conclusion stands.

The facts of the case were made known to the Security Commission, when it undertook the review of security procedures and practices, including vetting, in the public service which I commissioned in March 1981. In that report the commission dealt with criteria for positive vetting clearances and with the security implications of male homosexuality. I made it clear in my statement on the Security Commission’s report, which was presented to Parliament in May 1982 as Cmnd. 8540, that the Government accepted the Security Commission’s report and were acting upon its recommendations.

Ken Livingstone brought up the issue again on March 8th 1988, in the context of the Kincora Boys’ Home.

It turns out that Sir Maurice Oldfield had confessed his sexual preferences to none other than Sir Michael Havers. This was disclosed by journalist Chapman Pincher in the Spectator, September 12th 1998: http://archive.spectator.co.uk/article/12th-september-1998/20/leakers-i-have-known

The most delightfully indiscreet oyster I ever met was Michael Havers, the Tory attorney- general for many years and, briefly, lord chancellor. He had a healthy sense of the ridiculous which made him deride excessive secrecy, but he also derived peculiar pleasure from breaking the secrecy rules with which he was so deeply involved. Among many leaks to me, perhaps the most extraordinary was his detailed confirmation — while we were shooting pheasants in 1986 — of the Official Secrets scandal surrounding Sir Maurice Oldfield, the former Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service, MI6.

At dinner in Grosvenor House a year previously, Sir David McNee, the Metropolitan Police commissioner, had told me that Oldfield had been suspended from secret work after Scotland Yard officers had reported his involvement in homosexual activities. His behaviour, which would then have barred him from service in MI6, was not detected until he had retired as MI6 chief in 1978. Courageously, he had come out of retirement at Mrs Thatcher’s request to become security supremo in Northern Ireland, and McNee had been so concerned by what he was then told about the ‘rough trade’ visiting Oldfield’s London flat that he informed the home secretary, who alerted Mrs Thatcher. Why did McNee tell me this well-kept secret? It was the reaction of an honest copper and great believer in the role of intelligence in national security, appalled that such behaviour by any man in a supreme position of trust should remain covered up to suit the establishment.

I took no action until Havers told me that Oldfield had confessed his folly to him and had admitted having falsified his positive vetting form over many years when asked about his sex life. He also told me that the prime minister had withdrawn Oldfield’s security clearance and suspended him from his intelligence job, though he had been allowed to continue, briefly, after inquiries had shown that he had not been blackmailed and had promised to restrain himself.

Chapman Pincher knew Sir Maurice Oldfield better than most, and went on to claim Oldfield’s obsession was “what is referred to in Britain as rough trade; lower-class, down-and-out young males”.

Chapman Pincher elaborated further in 1987 – http://winnowinghistory.blogspot.co.uk/2009/12/inquiry-call-on-ex-mi6-chief.html

But according to Mr Pincher, in his book Traitors: The Labyrinths of Treason, Special Branch officers who were giving Sir Maurice round-the-clock protection throughout his Northern Ireland appointment discovered that male prostitutes were visiting him in his flat in Westminster.

It would seem that Sir Michael Havers told Chapman Pincher about Sir Maurice Oldfield’s ‘follies’ in 1986, with the confession actually taking place in March 1980. Sir Michael Havers was Attorney General from May 1979 to June 1987. Sir Maurice Oldfield finally resigned as Security Co-ordinator in Northern Ireland in June 1980, presumably after not being able to restrain himself.

A further story appeared in the Sunday News April 22nd 1984 –
http://spotlightonabuse.wordpress.com/2013/07/23/kincoragate-parapolitics/

Sir Maurice Oldfield in fact had a long-standing association with Kincora
http://spotlightonabuse.wordpress.com/2013/07/23/kincoragate-loose-ends/

It is often wrongly assumed that Oldfield’s links with Ireland date only from his appointment as Ulster Security Coordinator in 1979. But as Director of MI6 throughout the 1970s he was not only closely connected with Irish affairs, including the Kincora operation, but was a regular visitor to Belfast.

Sir Michael Havers would have been acutely aware of the Kincora scandal, which first came to public attention with an article in the Irish Independent in January 24th 1980, with the first convictions having taken place in December 1981. On February 16th 1982 there was a high-level meeting at the offices of the Lord Chancellor, Lord Hailsham, in London. Also present were Attorney General, Sir Michael Havers; Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, James Prior; and Sir William Bourne, a barrister and senior civil servant. Sir Michael Havers reported he had previously been briefed by the Northern Ireland Director of Public Prosecutions that the RUC were still investigating issues around Kincora despite the recent convictions. On March 23rd 1982 Sir Michael Havers wrote to James Prior, admitting that Kincora had turned out to be a much more complex affair than he had first thought.

Sex-abuse musical chairs

Chair of UK investigations (IICSA) changes suspiciously often as it investigates role of MI5 and MI6

12 June 2017

The London-based Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) was established in 2014. It has a mandate to investigate VIP abusers with links to Westminster. Regrettably, it cannot be described as truly independent since it is a creature of the Home Office, the parent department of MI5 which blackmailed, protected and exploited paedophile networks in the UK and Ireland and has dirty tricks embedded in its DNA.

An “independent” Inquiry?

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) was established in 2014 by Theresa May in her then capacity as Home Secretary. Her first choice as chair was Lady Ann Elizabeth Oldfield Butler-Sloss, whose appointment was announced on 8 July 2014. A storm of protest swept her off the chair within days because she was the sister of the late Michael Havers. He had served as Margaret Thatcher’s Attorney General in the 1980s. As reported in Village last month, Havers spoke up for the high-ranking British diplomat and MI6 officer, Sir Peter Hayman, after he had been exposed as a paedophile in March 1981 by Geoffrey Dickens MP in the House of Commons. The police had discovered that Hayman had been involved in a paedophile network and was a connoisseur of child pornography. Havers, speaking in his capacity as Attorney General, parried that Hayman’s collection was not extreme and had not warranted prosecution.

Butler-Sloss was born on 10 August 1933. Since the IICSA is likely to last another 12-15 years, she would have been well on the way to her century when it finished. Just what was Theresa May thinking?

May’s second choice as chairman was Dame Catherine Fiona Woolf, DBE, JP, DL, who was appointed in September 2014 and lasted a month. She was a friend and neighbour of Leon Brittan who had served as Home Secretary in the 1980s. In 1984 he was handed the Dickens Dossier which exposed a VIP paedophile network, by Geoffrey Dickens MP. Brittan commanded all the resources of the police and by lifting a telephone could have ensured that immediate action was taken to end the rape and brutalisation of children described in the institutions in the dossier. Instead he did precisely nothing. Why?

In 2014 it emerged that the Dickens Dossier had disappeared. When quizzed about this, Brittan initially claimed he had no memory of ever having received it but later relented and “recalled” he had handed it over to an official in the Home Office.

After media reports that Brittan had been a dinner party guest at Woolf’s house on at least three occasions, she stepped down from the IICSA and was replaced by Judge Lowell Goddard who shouldered the burden until 2016 when it became too much for her. One would almost be forgiven for suspecting that the Inquiry was designed to topple over under its own weight.

A subterranean campaign against the truth

A campaign to suppress the truth about manipulation by MI5 and MI6 of VIP paedophile networks has been afoot for decades and shows no sign of abating. As detailed in recent editions of Village, last year MI5 and MI6 (which is attached to the Foreign Office) lied to the Hart Inquiry about their involvement in the Kincora scandal and received a clean bill of health from it.

Meanwhile pro-establishment figures in the media (at least one of whom has been linked to MI6) have been campaigning to end police investigations into historical child abuse. There is growing support for this initiative among the British public on account of the behaviour of the police who investigated the singer Cliff Richard and others for child abuse when – patently – there was no evidence against them. Their behaviour was so inept one would be forgiven for thinking their intention was to poison the public against historical abuse inquiries.

Some of the vice rings which the IICSA should be investigating overlap with networks in Ireland. The odds are stacked high that the IICSA will be persuaded to ignore them in light of the publication of the Hart Report earlier this year which was meant to have dealt comprehensively with Irish issues but was hoodwinked by the spooks.

 

The Tory MP who visited Kincora

Other substantial threats to the Anglo-Irish paedophile network which have emerged in recent years have been swept back under the carpet. In 2015 two RUC officers who had been involved in the inquiries that led to the conviction of the staff at Kincora disclosed the involvement of a Tory MP at the home. On 23 January 2015 the late Liam Clarke reported in the Belfast Telegraph that they had told him that a Tory MP had “visited Kincora during the 1970s”. Both officers, he reported, were “willing to help any inquiry into Kincora either here or in England. They revealed that the MP died before they could arrange to interview him”. One of the officers revealed that the MP had been “coming over to the Northern Ireland Office quite regularly… We were told by criminal records in Scotland Yard London that he had a conviction many years ago for indecent behaviour or something in a gents’ loo against another boy but his death meant we never got a chance to question him”.

Clarke’s report adds credence to what Clint Massey, another Kincora survivor, recalls about his time at the home. “In those days, there were loads of people over from London. I have always assumed they were senior figures from Whitehall. I certainly heard English accents”.

Unfortunately, in 2017 the Hart Inquiry inaccurately concluded that the abuse at Kincora was confined to the staff members who were convicted in 1981 and that a wider sex-abuse ring did not exist.

The establishment’s Achilles heel

On a more positive note, there is a treasure trove of records which could act as a roadmap to pinpoint much of MI5’s complicity in covering up the VIP paedophile networks. They can be found in the archives of the D-Notice Committee. D-Notices are issued to the press to suppress the publication of information on the basis of “national security”. They are signed by judges. Clearly, they are not issued to curtail fiction, and therefore tend to attest to the accuracy of a story.

A D-notice was issued to suppress details about the rape of children at Elm Guest House, the notorious child brothel in London frequented by Jimmy Savile, Cyril Smith, Peter Hayman and others. Richard Kerr was one of those abused at it. Hilton Tims, editor of the Surrey Comet, 1980-1988, has revealed that in the 1980s one of his journalists made inquiries about it only to receive a D-Notice which shut his probe down. Who applied for it? What grounds did they offer the judge who issued it? Indeed, who was the judge?

The same questions could be asked about the D-Notice issued to journalist Dan Hale to quash his investigation into a VIP network involving politicians. It had been based on information supplied by Barbara Castle, the former Labour cabinet minister and MEP.

What, other than a blackmail operation, could have amounted to a “national security” interest at Elm Guest House and justified the suppression of Hale’s inquiry?

Time will tell if the IICSA allows Kerr to testify about Elm Guest House and bothers to examine the D-Notice archive.

An inconvenient witness

One survivor who will not be welcomed by the darker elements of the Home Office should he turn up to testify at the IICSA is Richard Kerr. He was raped as a young child in Belfast and as a teenager at Kincora before he was trafficked to England where he was exploited by a string of VIP abusers at locations such as Elm Guest House and Dolphin Square. At least two of his friends and fellow victims died many years ago. One of them, Stephen Warren, couldn’t take any more and committed suicide by jumping into the sea from the Liverpool-Belfast Monarch Ferry.

One of Kerr’s abusers was a senior politician whom he has yet to name in public. The abuse took place in London so the IICSA should investigate it. Kerr has hinted at who the culprit was on Channel 4 News in 2016. Village believes that he was a high-profile Tory cabinet minister who died not long before the Channel 4 interview.

Sir Anthony Blunt

Kerr is holding yet another ticking time-bomb: he saw Sir Anthony Blunt, formerly of MI5, at Kincora during the period 1975- 1977 in the company of two other men. Blunt was a member of the Cambridge Spy Ring which betrayed Britain’s secrets to the Soviet Union.

Blunt was the third and youngest son of the Reverend Stanley Vaughan Blunt (1870–1929) and his wife, Hilda Master (1880–1969). He was also a relative of the Queen Mother. He was born at Holy Trinity vicarage, Bournemouth, Hampshire, on 26 September 1907. As a child he lived for a while in Paris, where his father was the British embassy chaplain. He was later educated at Marlborough School where he developed a strong interest in art. According to one of his biographers, Michael Kitson: “Blunt was part of a group of rebellious young aesthetes”, he was producing precociously fluent defences of modern art, much to the infuriation of the deeply conservative art teacher – an early indication of his academic talent and his instinctive contrariness”.

Blunt worked for MI5 during WWII and then pursued a career as an art historian. He was to become a Knight of the Realm and Keeper of the Queen’s Pictures. His world was turned upside down in November 1979 after he was exposed as a Soviet mole. Photographs of him were plastered over newspapers in the UK for months on end to remind Kerr of exactly who he was.

‘Small boys are cheap today, cheaper than yesterday’

Blunt developed an appetite for so-called ‘rent boys’: impoverished male youths condemned to eke out a living as male prostitutes in seedy toilets in London: hardly a lifestyle any of them embraced voluntarily. Blunt ‘cottaged’ for them around the lavatories in Hyde Park, near to Speakers Corner. Details of Blunt’s private life and his fondness for visiting Northern Ireland have been described in many of the biographies written about him. If Kerr had not stepped forward, there would still have been ample grounds for the IICSA to enquire into his background. Kerr is significant nonetheless because he places Blunt at Kincora with two other men. This fact makes it imperative that the IICSA should roll up its sleeves and take a long hard look at Blunt. Although Blunt did not abuse Kerr himself, his two companions did.

There are also unconfirmed reports that Blunt was a visitor to Elm Guest House.

Blunt acquired his taste for ‘rent boys’ from his fellow MI5 traitor Guy Burgess, with whom he once lived. Burgess was addicted to them. While Burgess purported to be concerned for the downtrodden, he made jokes about the children he exploited from their ranks. On one occasion he wrote a nauseating adaptation of La donna e mobile which he thought was hilarious: “Small boys are cheap today, cheaper than yesterday”.

Blunt’s treachery was uncovered by MI5 in 1963. The following year he agreed to make a confession in return for immunity and the wholescale betrayal of the secrets of everyone he knew. Peter Wright of MI5 was assigned to interrogate him. In return for his co-operation, Blunt was given a pardon and his treachery was concealed from the public. The pardon was not limited to his treachery; in addition it afforded him blanket immunity for any crime he had ever committed, something undoubtedly designed to cover his sexual transgressions.

A marathon seven-year interrogation

Blunt must’ve felt he had smashed a mirror for bad luck. His face-to-face encounters with Wright would drag on for seven years. They were still proceeding apace during the early years of the Troubles by which time MI5 was keen to find any mechanism to gain control and influence over Loyalist politicians and paramilitaries. Blunt was in a pole position to assist them with his knowledge of the Anglo-Irish Vice Ring of which he was a leading light. The opportunities for sexual blackmail were immense.
For seven years Wright and MI5 pored over the careers of the Oxbridge graduates of the 1930s and anyone else of possible interest known to Blunt.

Blunt’s circle of friends in Ireland

Wright’s odyssey into the hidden recesses of Blunt’s life unravelled an array of friends and associates in Ireland, connections which reached back to his childhood. Blunt had attended Marlborough School where he had befriended the celebrated Belfast poet Louis MacNeice, who was born in the same month as him. For a long time the pair remained the best of friends.

Sir Samuel Knox Cunningham, MP, KC

Blunt earned a scholarship to Cambridge in 1926 where he made more Irish friends. One of then was Sir Samuel Knox Cunningham who was slightly younger than him. Cunningham became known as the ‘Boxing Queen’ because of his homosexuality and prowess as a pugilist. He was a heavyweight boxing champion at Cambridge. In later life he was elected as a Unionist MP. In the 1960s he represented South Antrim. He served as Parliamentary Private Secretary to Prime Minister Harold MacMillan, 1959-1963, and as such routinely attended Cabinet meetings at 10 Downing Street. Knox Cunningham often stayed with Blunt while in London and also knew Guy Burgess from their days at Cambridge. He was a rich man and lived on a 70-acre estate at Glencairn Park, and once came within an inch of becoming Grandmaster of the Orange Order. He chose not to stand in the 1970 general election and was succeeded by his fellow Orangemen and election agent, James Molyneaux who later led the Unionist Party. Molyneaux was a friend of another high-ranking Orangeman, William McGrath, one of the staff at Kincora who was convicted for child abuse in 1981.

Cunningham was also a key figure in the odious Anglo-Irish Vice Ring. At the start of Blunt’s debriefing, Peter Wright’s interest in Cunningham would have centred on the fact he had sat around the Cabinet table, was gay and the friend of a self-confessed KGB mole (Blunt) and another traitor who had defected to Moscow (Burgess). By the end of the debriefing in the early 1970s, Cunningham’s lofty position within the Orange Order and central role in Unionist politics would have been of equal interest to MI5. Cunningham was one of many homosexuals active inside the Orange Order who were susceptible to blackmail, especially as homosexuality was still a crime in Northern Ireland, and he undoubtedly knew many of them, including a leading light in the Orange Order, William McGrath, the housefather at Kincora.

Richard Kerr has revealed that Knox Cunningham was a visitor to Kincora. Since the IICSA is charged with investigating VIP child abuse, especially abusers who were Westminster MPs, the Inquiry will, it is to be hoped, listen to what Kerr has to say about Cunningham.

The Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Tyrone

Another of Blunt’s Irish friends was Captain Peter Montgomery, a cousin of ‘Monty’, the famous WWII field marshal. The Captain lived at a magnificent estate in Blessingborne, County Tyrone. The pair first met at Cambridge. Montgomery became one of Blunt’s earliest lovers, possibly even his first. Montgomery later became Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Tyrone, which meant he was one of a string of personal representative of the Queen in Ulster. He also became President of the Northern Ireland Arts Council. Montgomery always kept a room for Blunt at Blessingborne, and Montgomery often stayed with Blunt when he visited London. When Blunt suffered nervous exhaustion in 1943, it was to Ulster and the embrace of Montgomery he repaired for recuperation. After Blunt was exposed as an MI5 traitor, Blunt’s signature was found by Sunday Times reporters in the guestbook at Blessingborne. Captain Montgomery was also a key figure in the Anglo-Irish Vice Ring. According to the whistleblower Robin Harbinson, who knew him well, he procured boys from Portora Royal College, Enniskillen, for those in the vice ring with a penchant for well-bred children.

One of Blunt’s biographers, Miranda Carter, has provided a glimpse at the lifestyle Blunt and Montgomery enjoyed: “The writer Hugh Massingberd, Peter Montgomery’s great-nephew, remembered meeting Blunt, very much ‘off duty’, with his uncle in 1965. ‘It was a very hot day, and Blunt came in wearing virtually a G-string and a light sleeveless T-shirt, and said, “Peter’s overdressed and I’m underdressed. How do you do?”. It was a bit stagey. His [great] uncle also once took him to a party at Blunt’s old stomping ground, Palace Court. ‘There seemed to be a lot of oriental youths around, and Blunt and my uncle, one felt, had dropped their guards. It was full of opera queens and an odd mixture of seedy old faggots and oriental boys. It was very much a gay party’”.

Britain’s insatiable appetite for revelations about the Cambridge Spy Ring

As the bloodhounds in the UK press picked up the scent of Blunt’s MI5 treachery in 1979, he became preoccupied at the prospect of the seamy side of his private life being exposed. At the same time, senior members of the British Establishment were trying to talk Margaret Thatcher out of confirming that Blunt had been a KGB mole. They must also have been concerned that a root and branch investigation of Blunt’s sordid life by the media would expose the Anglo-Irish abuse network.

Now, if Richard Kerr manages to get to testify before the IICSA, he might yet manage to prise open this long-sealed can of Anglo-Irish worms. In the first instance, he will focus attention on Blunt and the Anglo-Irish network. While the British media has little interest in Kincora, it has an insatiable appetite for stories about the Cambridge Spy Ring. New books are published every year and receive a wider readership, and this has been the case for decades. If Blunt were linked to the vice ring that swirled around Kincora, some sections of the British media might become difficult to muzzle. If it became apparent that MI5 learnt about the inner workings of the Anglo-Irish vice ring through Blunt, and that this was what led them to Kincora, MI5 might yet face a torrid time in the British press, whatever about at the IICSA.

There is also a Byzantine and ironic possibility that Blunt – the arch traitor – returned to the MI5 fold in the 1970s, albeit with his tail between his legs. Those in MI5 who controlled him might have assigned him to work as an agent provocateur. And his mission? To lure influential pederasts and paedophiles to places like Kincora and Elm Guest House where MI5 surveillance teams were waiting to film them for blackmail purposes.

Bishop Carey  and Bishop Peter Ball

George Carey, who was archbishop of Canterbury at the time when police were investigating claims of sexual abuse by Peter Ball, wrote letters of support, to the director of public prosecutions and the chief constable of Gloucester police in February 1993.

Carey wrote of Ball’s “excruciating pain and spiritual torment” and the implications for the state of his mental health.

 

The two letters from Carey to the Chief Constable. The first is a handwritten composition in which he say he has the highest regard for Peter Ball who is a ‘Godly man.’

Since retiring from the Diplomatic Service he has been involved with education (as Chairman of the Council of Ardingly College from 2005-10 and Chairman of the Governing Body of the Marsh Academy New Romney from 2007-13); the Church (on the staff of Archbishop George Carey from 1999-2002; the Commonwealth Institute and its successor the Commonwealth Education Trust; the Pilgrims, where he serves as a member of the Executive Committee; and the County of Kent as a Kent Ambassador and a Deputy Lieutenant from 2007-13.

He became a Freeman of the World Traders (on the firm recommendation of Past Master Peter Gadsden) in 2000, and progressed through the Company to the Mastership in 2007-8. For him highlights of his year were the Sheep Drive across London Bridge in aid of the Lord Mayor’s charities (the brainchild of his wife Pat, also a Liveryman of the Company), and leading a delegation of World Traders to accompany Lord Mayor David Lewis on his official visit to Oman.

Why did the CPS abandon investigation into Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor?

The reputation of Sussex as a paedophile hotspot now has further credence thanks to child sex abuse convictions in the overlapping Anglican diocese of Chichester ...

Cardinal Murphy O’Connor’s Cover-Up of Child Abusers Must Be a Lesson to the Catholic Church

NSS Executive Director Keith Porteous Wood has followed the career of Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor who died on 1 September 2017 and seeks to set the historical record straight with this alternative obituary.

The death of Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor has understandably resulted in obituaries lauding his achievements as a Prince of the Catholic Church. But we are pleased that few ignore entirely the Cardinal’s involvement in one of the most scandalous child abuse cover-ups this country has seen.

I don’t doubt for a moment that Cardinal Murphy O’Connor did some good in his life, but there was another side to his story that should not be forgotten – a side that resulted in pain and suffering for many children. And the ruthless campaign by the Church to repress the details of the Cardinal’s many errors and misjudgements, and worse.

Despite the image of a genial old buffer that the Cardinal liked to project, it did not stop him, in 2006, from sacking his talented press secretary, a lay position, simply because he was “openly gay”. And O’Connor was “firmly against the repeal of Clause 28, which banned the promotion of homosexuality in schools”, a repressive and vindictive measure now regarded with embarrassment. This, despite the prevalence of gay men in the priesthood.

Those with long memories will also remember that, following complaints from parents, O’Connor, when Bishop of Arundel and Brighton, moved a known serial practising paedophile cleric, Michael Hill, from unsuspecting parish to unsuspecting parish.

If O’Connor’s objective had been to reward Hill by affording him the greatest possible opportunities to prey on an almost unlimited supply of vulnerable unaccompanied juveniles, some of them thousands of miles from their parents, he could have done no better than appoint Hill as Catholic chaplain at Gatwick Airport. Yet this is exactly what O’Connor did, despite his knowledge of Hill’s repeat offending and psychiatric reports that Hill was likely to re-offend.

Needless to say, O’Connor never shared what he knew about Hill’s criminal abusive activities with the police, contributing directly to Hill’s ability to continue his orgy of abuse unhindered. Hill was eventually convicted and jailed in two separate trials for abusing a boy with learning difficulties at the Airport, as well as eight other boys. Ten further charges unaccountably “remain on file”.

To his dying day, the best Murphy O’Connor could do in his mea culpa on Hill was to say his response was “inadequate but not irresponsible”. Not much consolation to the victims and their families. Nor will have been the self-righteous indignation of his pitiful response to criticism:

“Inevitably mistakes have been made in the past; but not for want of trying to take the right and best course of action.”

Richard Scorer, abuse lawyer and NSS director, examined the Hill saga exhaustively in his book Betrayed: The English Catholic Church and the Sex Abuse Crisis and demonstrated beyond doubt that O’Connor’s claims about Michael Hill were completely baseless.

And, so predictably, O’Connor’s affable mask slipped again and he got pretty vicious when the media started asking what were, to his mind, too many questions and getting too close to the uncomfortable truth.

It is an open secret that the BBC was muzzled from pursuing its investigative work on O’Connor by top-level representations made by O’Connor.

Few if any others than O’Connor could have managed to intimidate the BBC into silence, yet having done so, O’Connor still had the gall to claim that there was an anti-Catholic bias in the media. He wrote:

“Many others feel deeply concerned by the apparently relentless attack by parts of the media on their faith and on the church in which they continue to believe.”

That old trick so well practised by the Catholic hierarchy: portraying itself as the victim.

That would all be shocking enough, yet there is credible speculation that the Hill saga could have been just the visible tip of the iceberg. A 2012/3 report by the group Stop Church Sexual Abuse has speculated that:

“[Anglican] clergy … seem to have worked together with priests from [O’Connor’s] Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton … to abuse children.

Reports include that of a Catholic priest who had multiple reports for alleged child sex offences and who was moved by the Catholic Bishop [O’Connor] over to the CoE diocese of Chichester and became an Anglican Minister.

“The relationship between the [Catholic] Diocese of Arundel and Brighton [O’Connor’s] and [the Anglican one of] Chichester [in which Peter Ball, mentioned below, ministered] has been historically close. … in the 1980s … Bishops Cormac Murphy O’Connor and Peter Ball [not imprisoned until 2015 on multiple counts of sexual abuse committed over twenty years earlier] were close friends and it is now [claimed] that both sat on multiple reports of child sexual abuse by clergy and did nothing to protect children from further abuse.

“In total upwards of 17 Anglican and 19 Catholic clergy have been reported to have abused children up to the late 1990s within these Dioceses. Most lived and/or worked within one small geographic area which adds to the concern that there [may have been] a network of sex offenders shoaling for victims within church communities, schools, cathedrals, youth groups and scouting groups.”

Even the Daily Telegraph reported police investigations into “claims that O’Connor hampered Hill’s prosecution” and if the claims above are correct about O’Connor’s close friendship and nefarious collaboration with the devious and mendacious Peter Ball, who escaped justice for decades, this does not seem in the least far-fetched.

At least, however, O’Connor is still indelibly connected in the public’s mind with the disgraceful Michael Hill saga, having been widely reported including in The Times, with severe criticisms including “Victims’ groups demanded his resignation in 2002”.

The Church could not but have known very much more. But the process of rewriting history is no doubt in full progress.

Does it not however speak volumes about the Pope and Catholic Church that, given all the above, they chose, out of all the possible candidates, “His Eminence Cardinal” Cormac Murphy O’Connor to be a cardinal, to be the most senior Catholic in England and Wales, to be Emeritus Archbishop of Westminster, and to be the Pope’s Apostolic Visitor to investigate clerical child abuse in the Archdiocese of Armagh?

But maybe we should not be surprised. The Pope tellingly did not strip O’Connor’s fellow Cardinal in Scotland, Keith O’Brien, of his cardinal’s biretta for abusing his rank with decades of predatory sexual activity, when it all came to light in 2013.

It seems from the Gibb Report into disgraced former Bishop Ball that Sussex police appear to have done a workman-like job on abuse in the Anglican diocese. I would have suggested that the Sussex Police now turn their attention to the Catholic diocese, but unfortunately the CPS told them in 2003 to abandon the investigation whilst refusing to explain why. Hopefully this was not because of O’Connor’s clerical rank, just like the CofE’s Report suggested Peter Ball’s cleric rank was the reason he escaped justice in 1993.

20 former pupils at Ashdown House prep school in Sussex – where London mayor Boris Johnson was a boarder – have recently come forward with complaints about extreme cruelty and sex offences committed on them as young boys. A number of teachers are being investigated.
Maurice Victor Clive Williams, 71, retired, of High St, Barcombe, East Sussex, has been charged with four offences, two of indecent assault and two of gross indecency, all with a girl under 16. Another man, Martin Haigh, 66, unemployed, of Lavender St, Brighton, has also been charged with eleven offences, five of indecent assault and six of gross indecency. Four of the indecent assault charges against Haigh involve one boy and the fifth charge involves another boy. Two of the gross indecency charges involve the boy subject of the four indecent assault charges, two involve a second boy, one involves another third boy and one involves a fourth boy. All the boys were aged under 16 at the time of the alleged offences. The offences are alleged to have occurred while both men were employed as teachers at Ashdown House School near Forest Row. None of the offences are alleged to have been committed jointly. The charges, authorised by the CPS, follow an investigation by East Sussex child safeguarding detectives.

A third man, now aged 68, arrested in Tadley, Hants, in January 2015 on suspicion of gross indecency, has been stood down from his police bail while the CPS consider the evidence in relation to him.


Former headmaster of prep school attended by Boris Johnson and Damian Lewis is arrested on suspicion of child sex offences

  • Clive Williams, 69, is understood to have been arrested on Wednesday
  • He took the helm at Ashdown House in 1975 and remained until 2003
  • £24,000-a-year school in East Sussex dogged by claims of historic abuse
  • Mr Williams was released on bail after interview while investigations continue
  • Johnson family left ‘sad’ and grateful for Mr Williams’ ‘fantastic teaching’

The former headmaster of the £24,000-a-year prep school attended by Boris Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of child sex offences.

Clive Williams led Ashdown House school in East Sussex, whose former pupils also include the Homeland actor Damian Lewis, the Queen’s nephew Viscount Linley and former Tory chief whip Andrew Mitchell, for almost 30 years.

He is understood to be the 69-year-old man who Sussex Police say they arrested and interviewed on Wednesday over alleged sexual assaults and child neglect.

The headmaster, who had been so charming to Princess Margaret, turned out to be a sadist, addicted to spanking the bare bottoms of his charges. 

There was talk of blackmail and predatory older pupils encouraged by abusive teachers. That chimed with my adult perception of the bizarre sexualisation of life at Ashdown, especially the system of reward and discipline. At least two children I knew who had been given authority over younger kids used it to force sexual contact – Williamson seemed to have turned a blind eye. There was talk of connections with house masters at Eton, to which Ashdown fed pupils. There had been at least one suicide. There were more teachers in the complaint.

 Martin Haigh – Ashdown teacher

Ex-teacher sentenced for sex offences at East Sussex boarding school in 1970s

24 Mar, 2017

Martin Haigh

A Brighton man has been given 12- year prison sentence for sexual offences against four pupils at an East Sussex boarding school, at Ashdown House School, where he was a teacher in the 1970s, and possession of indecent images of children.


Martin Haigh (pictured), 67, unemployed, of Lavender St, Brighton, was sentenced at Brighton Crown Court on Friday (24 March) after a four day trial on charges of offences against two of the boys, which had ended in his being convicted on the previous day.He was convicted of  four offences, one of indecent assault and three of gross indecency, against the two boys who were then pupils aged between seven and 12, at Ashdown House School, an independent preparatory boarding school near Forest Row, between 1973 and 1975 while he was a teacher there.At a previous hearing before the trial Haigh had also admitted seven other offences, three of gross indecency and four of indecent assault, against two other boys at the school during the same period.He also admitted an offence of possessing indecent images of children, found on a computer at his address when officers searched it in 2015. The images were taken from the Internet and there is no evidence that they were children known to him.Haigh was sentenced to a total of 11 years for the sexual offences and an additional one year for the possession of indecent images.He will be a registered sex offender for life and has been served with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) severely restricting his access to children and computers.The prosecution, authorised by the CPS, followed an investigation by East Sussex child safeguarding detectives after allegations were referred to them for the first time in January 2014.Police emphasise that there are no current or recent safeguarding issues at the school in relation to this case.Detective Constable Paul Deadman said; “This was a complex and protracted investigation, during which it became clear that Haigh had systematically taken advantage of the trust of young and vulnerable boys to abuse them for his own sexual gratification.

Boris Johnson

Jo Johnson

He is understood to be the 69-year-old man who Sussex Police say they arrested and interviewed on Wednesday over alleged sexual assaults and child neglect.

Mr Williams was released on bail while investigations continue and is not charged with any offence.

A spokesman for the family told The Times: ‘We are all sad to hear this news. We were all four happy at Ashdown and will always be especially grateful to Clive Williams for his fantastic teaching.’

There is no suggestion that the Johnsons, Mr Lewis, Mr Mitchell or Viscount Linley were among the alleged victims.

Mr Williams took the helm of the school near Tunbridge Wells, Kent, with his wife Rowena in 1975 and remained until 2003, a time in which the school admitted girls for the first time.

Since he left, however, the 170-year-old school has become the centre of allegations of historic sexual abuse.

In December it emerged two former pupils were suing the school over abuse they claimed happened in the 1970s and involved ‘more than one teacher’.

An email seen by the Daily Mail said: ‘The effects of this abuse has damaged a number of pupils long into adulthood and it is felt among us that, as part of the healing process, it is important for us to take our power back and take action against such damaging and horrendous actions.’

Multiple complaints have been forwarded to officers from Sussex Police’s Operation Mitre who have been in touch with more than 20 alleged victims, including some who live abroad.

The Sussex Police spokesman added: ‘During January this year we were contacted by a firm of Solicitors representing a number of clients who have reported to them that they were sexually and physically assaulted by staff whilst they were pupils at Ashdown House School near Forest Row in the 1970’s.
The investigation continues and now spans a period from the late 1960s to the early 1980s.

Damian Lewis: Boarding school is a ‘very violent’ experience that ‘defines you emotionally for life’

Damian Lewis, the Old Etonian actor, has told how he found being sent to boarding school a “very violent experience“.

The star said children who are sent away from home to be educated are left with an experience that “defines you emotionally for the rest of your life”.

The son of a City broker, he was born in the wealthy London suburb of St John’s Wood and was sent to boarding school Eton, whose former pupils include David Cameron and Boris Johnson.

Lewis, who has two children with fellow actor Helen McCrory, said he would not send his own children to boarding school at such a young age.

Recalling his own experience, he said: “I went at eight and I think that’s very hard. You go through something which, at that age, defines you and your ability to cope.

There’s a sudden lack of intimacy with a parent, and your ability to get through that defines you emotionally for the rest of your life. It’s a very violent experience in those first few weeks. It’s just, boom.”

[Wikipedia has Damien Lewis (b.1971) as attending Ashdown House prep school.]

Daily Telegraph

 We were all four happy at Ashdown and will always be especially grateful to Clive Williams for his fantastic teaching.’
The story begins in 1974. Boris, Leo and I (Jo, my littlest brother, was in crèche) are at the European School in Brussels. The Belgian capital in the Seventies was all wild dinner parties, consciousness-raising groups and open marriages. My mother was often in hospital, and my father was often away, and when they were “at home”, my glamorous parents tended to be out.

Ex-Ashdown House School – the centre of allegations of historic sexual abuse – head Clive Williams cleared of child sex charges

14 March 2017

Maurice Williams was headmaster of Ashdown House for 25 years before he left in 2003

A former head teacher has been found not guilty of historical sex offences against a pupil at his school.

Maurice Williams, 72, of High Street, Barcombe, East Sussex, was acquitted of two charges of indecent assault and two of gross indecency.

They were alleged to have involved a girl under 16 between 1989 and 1993 at Ashdown House School, near Forest Row.

Ashdown House is a co-educational, preparatory boarding school for children aged between seven and 13.

Another former teacher at the school, charged at the same time as Mr Williams, is due to face a trial on 20 March at Lewes Crown Court.

Charles Napier and Peter Righton

Righton – the subject of a 1994 documentary on paedophiles

After he had been found guilty of abuse as early as 1972, Napier was placed on List 99 with the Department of Education and so should not have been allowed to teach again
However Peter Righton, an equally devious and prolific abuser, intervened
As Director of Education at the National Institute for Social Work, Righton had become a prestigious social work professional.

Charles Napier was able ( by his own admission in a number of letters to Righton over many years ) to abuse countless number of boys in Sweden and Egypt over many years in the late 70’s through the 80’s until 1992 when the arrest of Righton and the discovery of these letters led to his ( Napier’s) immediate dismissal

Napier and Righton ” shared ” a large number of victims, and offences, including rape, during the 80’s but never faced charges on any of the most serious cases of abuse

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

Why was Righton allowed to reach the very top of the social work profession ( with posts at NISW and the National Children’s Bureau as stepping stones to positions as a Home Office/ Government “expert” on major reports ) despite being caught red handed abusing boys on a large scale in the 1950’s and writing quite openly in NISW and NCB journals, articles etc from 1971 onwards about his views that adult and child sexual relationships we re not necessarily harmful.

As a true test of his new found “remorse ” (Napier can now share with the Police all the names of the ” rich and famous ” who attended the parties his victims referred to

As Treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange in its peak period of membership in the mid 70’s Napier holds the key to the identity of hundreds of dangerous abusers who continued to abuse thousands of children over many decades

Child Porn Raids on Public Schools; Four Teachers Quit

Daily Mail September 20, 1996

AT LEAST three public schools have been raided by Scotland Yard detectives investigating claims of a paedophile ring, it emerged yesterday.

Videos, computer disks and books were seized from a master at Harrow School. And four teachers at two other schools have left their jobs.

Harrow head Nicholas Bomford defended his teacher last night, saying no charges were brought against the man, who was still in his post.

Police Investigate Public School Paedophile Ring’
The Times, 25 August 1996.

SCOTLAND YARD detectives are investigating allegations of a paedophile network involving teachers from some of Britain’s top public schools, writes Stephen Grey.

The paedophile and child pornography unit is inquiring into a ring of private school staff who allegedly exchange information, boast of abusing youngsters and travel abroad together on “sex tours”. At least six teachers have been questioned and their homes raided as inquiries continue into the ring that has links to some of the most notorious paedophiles in Britain.

The paedophile unit has been assisted by detectives from forces around the country as well as social workers.

The inquiry began after a former teacher at Abberley Hall preparatory school in Herefordshire allegedly confessed to a colleague to being part of a huge network of paedophiles.  Abberley Hall confirmed last week that both teachers were no longer on staff.

The former teacher claimed that he had had sex with “hundreds and hundreds” of boys and named teachers at six other leading establishments.

Trips for the teachers to indulge in child abuse with “rent boys” have allegedly been organised to countries including the Philippines, Czech Republic, Romania, Albania, Thailand and even Bosnia.
“These people decided a few years ago it was no longer safe to talk openly of abusing kids in this country, but decided they were perfectly safe abroad. At home they content themselves with sick pictures of child abuse,” said one source.
Although full details cannot be revealed for legal reasons, the investigation has involved a series of police raids, including one at the home of a head of department at a prominent London public school, where pornography was removed.

Another raid took place at Hurstpierpoint College in Sussex. Last week Stephen Meek, headmaster confirmed that two staff had been dismissed after a police caution for the possession of indecent material. “It was nothing to do with pupils at the school,” he said.
Other teachers also named include three masters at another leading public school, two masters at two famous preparatory schools in the home counties, and a choir school teacher.
The teachers were said to exchange paedophile videos. When they feared police raids, they allegedly worked together to conceal material.
“Many of these teachers will be secure in the knowledge that they will never be prosecuted,” said one police source.

Also named as allegedly linked to the network are Peter Righton, the former childcare expert exposed as a paedophile, and Charles Napier, a former treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange and a former staff member of the British Council in Cairo who was jailed last year for sex assaults on youngsters in London.

Christopher Potter was born in Worcester 61 years ago. He studied classic Greek and Latin at Cambridge University – subjects he still teaches. His first experience in education came at a boarding school in Ardingly, Sussex, before he came to Old Swinford in 1978.

Twenty three years on, the father-of-five is retiring, earning him the honour of being one of the longest serving headmasters in the history of the school.

‘Over the past years we’ve built up a big entry to both Cambridge and Oxford, and we’re recognized on a national level for our academic achievements, but this boy was the first from this school to get into Cambridge for 320 years, and that was a big day for both me and the school’ he says.

Apart from the academic results, Old Swinford has also educated some familiar faces. Nick Baley, the new doctor Anthony Trueman in EastEnders, and Ian Hislop from the TV-show Have I Got News For You are just some of the ex-pupils that have made it big.

Long history of issues at Ardingly cf.Jon Snow & ex-Broadmoor staff

News anchor Jon Snow has described how he was abducted and undressed by a member of school staff when he was six years old.

Snow went to Ardingly College in West Sussex, where his father was headmaster. He said in his autobiography that the school’s domestic quarters had a “prison-camp feel” as he described the incident in 1953.

Snow wrote in Shooting History that the man responsible was a member of domestic staff named “Jim”, who lived on the school grounds and had been released from a psychiatric hospital.

Ardingly College Lodge No 4410

This is the Masonic Lodge for Ardingly College. We are independent of the school, but strongly connected.

Ardingly College is an English public school at Ardingly, in Sussex.  It was founded in 1858 by Nathaniel Woodard.  Woodard established Ardingly as St Saviour’s College, after Lancing and Hurstpierpoint

In 1923 the then Headmaster of Ardingly College, together with other masters and the Provost of the school, the Bishop of Lewes, set up a new private lodge under the UGLE for Masons having a connexion with the school.  We are that Lodge.  We are open to Old Ardinians, school staff, parents of pupils and of OAs, and any other friend of Ardingly College

Support from the School staff continued for many years. GJ Ince, the School Chaplain, was appointed our Chaplain at the Consecration and served in that office until 1944

Ardingly College Lodge

The school has its own Masonic Lodge, Ardingly College Lodge, which is a member of the elite Freemason “Public School Lodges” Council.[19] The Lodge, which is open to male Old Ardinians as well as those with an affiliation to the college, was founded in 1922 by the then headmaster, Thomas Erskine Wilson, together with masters, the Provost of the school and the Bishop of Lewes.[20]

In 1958 the school celebrated its centenary . On 9 June 1958, as part of the celebrations, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Ardingly. A stone plaque on the terrace parapet commemorates the visit, where she “beheld the view”. Later that week, on 14 June 1958, the then Prime Minister , Harold MacMillan , visited the school to open the Centenary Building, which comprises the college cricket pavilion and upstairs Centenary Room. On 8 May 2008, the Duke of Kent visited Ardingly as part of its sesquicentenary celebrations and officially opened a new teaching block at the pre-preparatory school.

Robert Alston was governor of Pitcairn Island where sexual abuse was rampant.

Legacy of Sexual Mayhem, the Dark Secrets of Pitcairn Island

For Britain, the case raised embarrassing questions about its supervision of the colony, now known as an overseas territory.  Judges and lawyers were appointed, and in 2003, after a series of legal and logistical hurdles had been surmounted, 13 men were charged with 96 offences dating back to the 1960s.

In 2004, I spent six weeks on the island, reporting on one of the most bizarre court cases imaginable.

Why was it that many outsiders persisted in defending men who were guilty of a crime that was normally reviled — pedophilia? Why did they continue to mythologize Pitcairn, although it had failed, in such a dramatic way, to live up to its utopian image?

Official inquiries into prolonged failure to prevent child abuse in the Diocese of Chichester which includes Lewes brought up allegations against Bishop Peter Ball

https://youtu.be/XPxGwVNJv_c

Butler-Sloss Church of England hand picked.

She wanted to exclude some of the survivor’s allegations against Bishop Peter Ball, in a bid to protect the Church of England.

He says she told him she “cared very much about the Church”.

Mr Johnson, who suffered assaults by a number of clergymen when he was a choirboy in the Church of England Diocese in Chichester, said he felt during her review of Church abuse, Baroness Butler-Sloss had been “showing bias and wasn’t being impartial”.

The Rt Rev Peter Ball, who was bishop of Gloucester and bishop of Lewes in East Sussex, was charged with two counts of indecent assault and one of misconduct in a public office, following her investigation into abuse in the diocese of Chichester during the 1970s and 1980s.

Baroness Butler-Sloss was behind controversial paedophile ruling

Lady Butler-Sloss acted as character witness for man convicted of attacking 13-year-old girl and defends child rapist Chard in court

He was found guilty of one count of rape and of sexual activity with a child

She had known Chard for 20 years because his mother Valerie was her cleaner at her home in East Devon.

link

Butler-Sloss gave character evidence supportive of Chard at another trial eight years ago when he was accused of assaulting a man while working as a nightclub bouncer. Chard was also convicted for that offence, but on that occasion escaped being sent to prison.

Chard’s victim from the 2007 case and his family have expressed anger that Butler-Sloss, who last year stepped down as chair of the independent historical child abuse inquiry, was again prepared to apparently back him in court.

Child sexual abuse

The school has been at the centre of three major child safeguarding problems, including a child sexual abuse scandal:[11]

  • In February 2009, teaching assistant Robert Healy was jailed for seven years after he admitted grooming two girls using the social networking site Bebo, then having sex with them.[12]
  • Canon Gordon Rideout was allowed to remain chair of the school governors for more than a year despite having being suspended by the Church of England following a Criminal Records Bureau check and despite the school being aware.[13] Rideout was jailed for 10 years in May 2013 for abusing 36 vulnerable girls and boys at a now closed Barnardo’s home in Crawley, West Sussex, over a four-year period between the 1960s and 1970s.[14]
  • In September 2012, maths teacher Jeremy Forrest was arrested in Bordeaux, and subsequently charged by Sussex Police with the abduction of a 15-year-old female pupil.[15] He was found guilty in June 2013, and after pleading guilty to five further charges of sexual activity with a child, was jailed for 5½ years.[16][17] The judge said that Forrest had been repeatedly warned by colleagues but had lied to them and had been motivated by self-interest.[18] Although a review published in April 2013 did not find evidence of “any significant or systemic failings in safeguarding” following the Forrest verdict,[11] there were calls for headteacher Terry Boatwright to be sacked.[19]

Jailed sex predator priest handed additional sentence

Gordon-Rideout

A FORMER priest who is already serving ten years in prison for 36 historic sexual offences has now been sentenced to nine months in prison.

Gordon Rideout

pleaded guilty to one charge of indecent assault on a girl under the age of 16 at a children’s home in Reigate when he appeared at Guildford Crown Court on 20 December 2016. The assault took place between 29 July 1969 and 21 July 1974.

Rideout was originally jailed for 10 years in May 2013 at Lewes Crown Court for a series of historic sexual offences between 1962 and 1973, including attempted rape and indecent assaults on both boys and girls, some of whom were under 13 years of age.

Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS South East Jaswant Narwal said: “Gordon Rideout was in a position of trust throughout his career, something he abused systemically. The impact he had on the victim in this case cannot be underestimated, even more than 40 years after he abused her, as it is clear this has affected the rest of her life and now Rideout has finally accepted responsibility for his actions and been sentenced for them.”

Rev Jonathan Graves appeared at a Plea and Case Management Hearing at Lewes
Crown Court on Thursday 5th May. He is charged with 11 counts of abuse, these include:

– Indecent assault against a male,
– Gross indecency against a male,
– Assault / neglect / ill treatment / abandonment of a child,
– Indecent assault against an adult female.

He pleaded not guilty to all charges and a trial date has been set for 5th December 2016.

Fr. Jonathan was the vicar of St. Luke’s Church, Stone Cross in the Diocese of Chichester from 1995 – 2002, where most of the alleged offences took place.

He later had his Permission to Officiate as a Church of England priest withdrawn.

Despite this Fr. Jonathan continues to officiate and play the organ at funerals, particularly at Hastings Crematorium – he conducted 137 funerals in a four year period AFTER being banned by the Church of England.

You do not have to be licences to conduct a funeral and Fr. Jonathan is a ‘retired priest’ conducting ‘humanist’ funerals… apparently,
even though they have prayers and hymns?!?

– This is completely legal.

We are not trying to pre-judge the outcome of the trial and recognise that everyone is
innocent until proven guilty but….

Is it right for a man facing such serious charges to be visiting families in their
homes at a time when they are vulnerable due to their recent bereavement with,
it would appear, no real safeguards being put in place?

A former Church of England priest has been charged with abusing a boy more than 25 years ago.

Jonathan Mark Graves, 57, of Jervis Avenue, Eastbourne, is accused of indecent assault against a boy aged 11 to 13 between 1987 and 1990.

He was also charged with child cruelty against the same boy and indecent assault against two women, one between 1994 and 1995 and the other in 2002.

Church of England priest has been jailed for 12 years for torturing and sexually abusing two schoolboys in the 1980s and 90s.

At the time, he was the vicar at St Luke’s Church in Stone Cross.

He was convicted on Thursday at Hove Crown Court of 12 offences dating between 1987 and 1992.

Former Church of England priest has been jailed for 12 years for torturing and sexually abusing two schoolboys in the 1980s and 90s.

Jonathan Graves, 60, of Eastbourne, East Sussex, restrained the children, who were aged between 12 and 14, using belts and chains, and then beat them.

At the time, he was the vicar at St Luke’s Church in Stone Cross.

He was convicted on Thursday at Hove Crown Court of 12 offences dating between 1987 and 1992.

‘Manipulative and twisted’

During his summing up Judge David Rennie called Graves “secretive, cynical, manipulative and twisted”.

Det Insp Jon Gross, of Sussex Police Public Protection Command, said: “I’m pleased as far as you can be with this, it’s a significant sentence for this type of offence.

“This man has had two personas, the public persona that his congregation knew and let parents put their children in his care, and behind closed doors the planning to groom these children and get them to do despicable things.”

He added he had “nothing but admiration” for the victims who came forward and “stuck with” the prosecution process for about four years.

Graves, of Jervis Avenue, was cleared of five similar charges, including one offence of indecent assault on a 50-year-old woman in 2002, following a nine-day trial.

Canon Gordon Rideout and Father Robert Coles

6 March 2012

Two retired Church of England priests have been arrested in the Eastbourne area on suspicion of sexually abusing children and young men.

Canon Gordon Rideout, 73, is suspected of sexually assaulting nine young people between 1965 and 1972.

Former parish priest Robert Coles, 70, is suspected of sexually assaulting three young men in West Sussex in the late 1970s and mid-1980s.

One of the allegations against Robert Coles was investigated in 1997, and an arrest was made, but there was insufficient evidence to justify criminal proceedings at that time.

The other allegations have only recently emerged as a result of the current inquiry.

Rev Mark Carey son of former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord George Carey arrested over 1980s child sex abuse claims


Letters from 1966 between the then Archbishop of Canterbury and a bishop show the Church agreed that a convicted paedophile should be ordained.

The correspondence has emerged in a report into the Church’s failure to support victims of Roy Cotton that was published online and then removed.

A spokeswoman for the Diocese of Chichester told the BBC the Meekings Report was removed because the document had accidentally included some confidential information.

Both studies looked into the behaviour of Cotton and another paedophile priest, Colin Pritchard.

Peter Ball suspected of committing offences during late 1980s but allegations against other priests date back further still

The arrest of Bishop Peter Ball on suspicion of sexual offences against boys and men at addresses in East Sussex and elsewhere is the latest development in a wide-ranging and often contentious series of official inquiries into decades of alleged child protection failures in the diocese of Chichester on England’s south coast.
………………………….

From the 1970s to the 1990s there were sporadic and low-profile investigations into allegations of sexual abuse against priests in the diocese, but none got as far as the courts. The breakthrough case was arguably the 2008 conviction of Rev Colin Pritchard, a vicar in Bexhill. Pritchard pleaded guilty at Northampton crown court to four counts of indecent assault on a child and three counts of gross indecency on a child. The offences are reported to have taken place between 1979 and 1983 and to have involved two victims, aged between 12 and 15. He was jailed for five years.

Another case involved Roy Cotton, who became a priest in the diocese of Chichester after having been convicted of a sexual offence against a child in 1953 for indecently exposing himself in the organ loft of a village church. Cotton died in 2006 and was never prosecuted.
After Cotton retired he was granted permission to officiate and Meekings reported that a member of St Saviour’s and St Peter’s church in Eastbourne told him that “Cotton attended that church and made a ‘nuisance’ of himself with the choirboys which led to a number of them leaving or wanting to leave the choir and the church”.

Update: 26 Apr 2017

Colin Pritchard

Colin Pritchard is accused of seven offences against a boy

A former Anglican priest has been charged with sex offences against a boy in the 1980s and 1990s.

Ifor Whittaker, 72, formerly known as Colin Pritchard, is charged with seven offences involving the boy, who was aged between 12 and 16 at the time.

He is accused of conspiring with ex-clergyman Roy Cotton, who has since died, to commit sex acts with the boy.

Mr Whittaker, of Rectory Road, Sutton, south London, is due to appear before magistrates on 24 May.

He is also accused of gross indecency and inciting the boy to commit gross indecency.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between February 1987 and February 1993 against the boy in East Sussex.

Mr Whittaker was vicar of Sedlescombe, near Battle, and it is claimed the offences took place there, Sussex Police said.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-sussex-39724639

As chaplain of Eastbourne Hospital Hubert was under the Chichester Diocese of the Church of England. During the 1960’s til the 1990’s this diocese has some of the worst examples of child sexual abuse committed by priests. The numbers and the scope of the phenomenon is truly astounding. Canon Gordon Rideout who was the Vicar of All Saints in Eastbourne was jailed for ten years for 36 separate offences on 16 children between 1962 and 1973. Peter Ball, former Bishop of Lewes was convicted of abuse in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Former priest Keith Wilke Denford of Burgess Hill and organist Michael Mytton were convicted of historic sexual abuse.

Former priest Keith Wilke Denford of Burgess Hill and organist Michael Mytton were convicted of historic sexual abuse.

Michael Mytton

Michael Mytton worked as an organist in the Lewes area

A retired Church of England priest and a former organist and choirmaster have been found guilty of a string of child sex abuse offences dating back more than 25 years.

A judge said that Father Keith Wilkie Denford and Michael Mytton had committed “a grave breach of trust and a gross breach of trust”.

Father Wilkie Denford

Denford, who was the vicar at St John the Evangelist Church in Burgess Hill, West Sussex, was found not guilty of abusing one of the boys aided by organist and choirmaster Mytton (known as Mark), 69, in the back of Mytton’s Jaguar.

Prosecutor Marcus Fletcher said during the trial that one of Denford’s two victims recalled blowing the whistle about the abuse to a vicar – but nothing was done.

In the end, it was not until last year that police were alerted after one of the boys, now in his late 30s, found out that Denford was still in contact with children.

Through police investigation, the name of a third boy emerged and he disclosed that he suffered abuse at the hands of Mytton from around 1990 to 1994 when he was aged 10 or 11.

He told investigators that he once accompanied Mytton to a dinner party as his “plus one”.

The jury was told that in 1981 Mytton was convicted of two counts of gross indecency on a 12-year-old boy, forcing Mytton to leave his position at a church in Uckfield.

Denford and Mytton are the two latest figures linked to the scandal-hit Diocese of Chichester to be convicted of historic child sex abuse offences.

In February, retired priest Robert Coles, 71, was jailed for eight years at Brighton Crown Court after he admitted abusing young boys dating back to the 1970s.

Coles, of Upperton Road, Eastbourne, pleaded guilty to buggery and four indecent assaults on one victim and three indecent assaults against two other boys.

The offences took place in West Sussex and elsewhere in the late 1970s and early 1980s against boys aged between 10 and 16 at the time.

Church accused of systematic failings after sixth abuser in two years unmasked

A SEXUAL abuse victim has accused the Church of “systematic behaviour” in failing to act on allegations of assault after the sixth Sussex churchman in two years was exposed as an offender .

The claim comes after it was revealed on Thursday that former Bishop of Chichester George Bell, a man once tipped to be Archbishop of Canterbury, sexually abused a young child for a number of years.

Campaigners are now questioning the Diocese of Chichester’s ability to investigate itself, as historic cases continue to emerge despite five separate inquiries.

Additionally an inquiry into the Church’s handling of the Peter Ball case was commissioned on October 5 and the diocese is also co-operating with the national Goddard review into child sexual abuse.

Yesterday there was no clarification from the current Bishop of Chichester, Martin Warner, following his comment that there had been no cover up by the Church.

This despite an 18 year delay between Bell’s abuse being reported and the Church passing allegations to the police.

George Bell was so feted nationally and internationally that there is church property, a charity, a house of Bishop Luffa School in Chichester, and even a feast day in his name.

But by Thursday his reputation lay in the same increasingly crowded gutter as five other vicars, bishops and church employees from the diocese – which covers almost all of Sussex – who have been convicted since 2013.

The list includes Father Keith Wilkie Denford, a Burgess Hill vicar convicted alongside church organist Michael Mytton of abusing 13 year old boys in the late 1980s.

Robert Coles, a priest from Eastbourne, who pleaded guilty two years ago to 11 charges of abusing boys between the ages of 10 and 16.

And this month former Bishop of Lewes Peter Ball was jailed for taking sexual advantage of young men who came to him for guidance.

Additionally, Bexhill vicar Colin Pritchard was jailed in 2008 for abusing boys in the 70s and 80s, in a case which also brought to light abuse perpetrated by his deceased colleague Roy Cotton.

Phil Johnson, a victim of Ball’s who waived his right to anonymity, said yesterday: “In nearly all these cases information was reported to the Church and the Church failed to take action. This is a sign of systematic behaviour.”

Since 2012 the diocese has seen the publication of the Meekings Report into past cases, an enquiry by Baroness Butler-Sloss, an Archiepiscopal Visitation Enquiry commissioned by Lambeth Palace, and the publication of the Carmi enquiry into abuse in Chichester. Despite these new cases have continued to come to light.

Keith Porteous Wood, director of the National Secular Society, said the problem was internal enquiries with insufficiently broad terms of reference, and called for the Church to be totally transparent in its dealings with the national Goddard enquiry.

For the diocese, Bishop Mark Sowerby of Horsham insisted that the Church’s attitude was now one of complete openness, adding: “We have moved a very long way from the inadequacy of the response [to the Bell allegations] in 1995.”

The remnants of Bell’s tarnished reputation is now being removed by those now troubled by the association.

A spokeswoman for Chichester Cathedral said that George Bell House would be renamed. Prestigious Church of England secondary school Bishop Luffa faced calls from campaigners to rename one of its houses, which is named “Bell house” after the bishop.

And the removal of an annual Church of England feast day held in Bell’s name is expected when church officials next meet, with a spokesman saying that until that can take place, he would “not advise anyone to mark the day in any liturgical way.”

Peter Bick lived in Bexhill in East Sussex.

On 23 April 2012, a former altar boy, Christopher Hunnisett, 28, appeared in court accused of murdering Peter Bick, 57, as part of a campaign of hate against paedophiles.

Bick is believed to have been a friend of Prince Philip.

Police found Peter Bick, 57, dead in his flat on January 11 2011.

It emerged this week that Mr Bick – who most recently worked as a meet-and-greet-man at Asda in Silverhill – spent time in prison after he admitted conning a 95-year-old Thakeham woman out of £70,000. The pensioner had given Mr Bick power of attorney but police found he had siphoned off funds to bankroll an upmarket lifestyle and clear his credit card debts. When he was interviewed he said he had paid himself an annual salary and had moved some money around to try and maximise the interest. He was planning to pay it all back, he added.

After being freed from prison in September 2010, Hunnisett, of Hastings, East Sussex, made a “hit list” of men he planned to kill in his bid to rid the world of paedophiles.
Mr Bick, an Asda employee from Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, was at the top of Hunnisett’s list of targets

link

He said he had contacted Mr Bick via a website and met him at his flat, where he claimed the older man had admitted committing sex acts with youths aged 14 and 16.

He then attempted to “honeytrap” him, claiming he could arrange a threesome with himself and a public schoolboy aged 15, whom he invented using the online alias “Golden Boy”, while the boy’s parents were away on holiday.

He claimed Mr Bick agreed but before it was due to happen he travelled to Bexhill, where he told him the boy was unable to join them.

Hunnisett said he then stripped naked and committed a sex act while Mr Bick watched, claiming it was part of his cover. Under the pretext of sex games he then tied the also naked Mr Bick to his bed with shoelaces tied around his neck, saying the older man had admitted it was something he had done with one of the young boys.

link

As the foreman of the jury returned a guilty verdict, Hunnisett, of Chanctonbury Drive, Hastings, leapt over the dock in an attempt to escape and shouted “Every word I said was true”.

He had to be restrained by eight people and could be heard sobbing as they tried to calm him down in the dock.

Why did the CPS abandon investigation into Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor?

Why did the CPS abandon investigation into Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor?

As the full scale of the British Establishment’s cover-up of child sex abuse becomes apparent, Alistair McBay argues it is time for the Crown Prosecution Service to make public its reasons for dropping the investigation into Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor 12 years ago.

It’s hard to know where to begin in writing about the issue of child sex abuse in Britain. As Home Secretary Teresa May said earlier this month, the abuse is “woven, covertly, into the fabric of British society”. She warned that “what the country doesn’t yet appreciate is the true scale of that abuse” but might have added “or the scale of the cover-up.”

Geelong Grammar: Child Sexual Abuse Royal Commission report set to be tabled in parliament

February 13, 2017

SURVIVOR of abuse at Geelong Grammar School has slammed its trademark positive education program as “crap”, as the royal commission’s findings on the elite Corio school are set to be tabled in Parliament.

Libby O’Brien attended Geelong Grammar in the 1980s and said she hoped the commission’s report did not “get swept under the carpet”.

“There are so many more perpetrators out there,” she said, despite the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse having been in progress since 2013.

“The cover-ups were really frightening,” she said. “I just want to make sure (the royal commission finding) doesn’t go under the radar.”

Ms O’Brien said the decades-long fight for justice had been “an extremely painful process”. She and a group of survivors and friends covered Geelong Grammar’s gates with coloured ribbons in February of last year, transforming it into a “Loud Fence” symbolising those who were sexually abused and couldn’t be heard.

“I’m so sick of telling this story,” Ms O’Brien said. “I keep getting slapped in the face — it’s really, really hard.”

In a November, 2016, submission to the royal commission, counsel assisting David Lloyd said former Geelong Grammar principal John Lewis had failed to protect students under his care.

“Mr Lewis did not treat the issue of child sexual abuse seriously and preferred the reputation of the school to the interests and welfare of the students,” Mr Lloyd said.

A spokesman for Geelong Grammar said the school would be responding to the royal commission’s findings when they become available.

The school was at the heart of a debate in South Australian politics last weekend, when it emerged SA schools had forked out more than $620,000 for Geelong Grammar to teach educators from Adelaide’s northern suburbs how to “nurture and sustain positive relationships”. SA Opposition treasury spokesman Rob Lucas described the program as a “massive waste of taxpayers’ money”.

A spokesman for the SA Department for Communities and Social Inclusion said Geelong Grammar was “one of the world leaders in the adoption of positive education”.

Ms O’Brien said she was “pretty disgusted” that the school was profiting from a program espousing student wellbeing.

“It’s such crap,” she said.

She urged anyone with information on historical abuses to go to the authorities.

“Anyone who knew anything, just report it to police,” she said. “Every report counts.”

Commissioners are holding a public hearing on Catholic Church authorities until February 27. From March 6 they will hold hearings on Commonwealth and State governments, the Uniting Church, Anglican Church, Yeshivah Melbourne and Bondi, and Australian Christian churches and Pentecostal authorities.

Cranbrook headmaster Nicholas Sampson wrote ‘misleading’ letters after sexual abuse allegations raised

14 Feb 2017

Headmaster: response ‘just not good enough’

Former Geelong Grammar headmaster Nicholas Sampson faces questions about how the school dealt with allegations of sexual misconduct by former teacher Jonathon Harvey

The headmaster of one Sydney’s most expensive private schools, Cranbrook, wrote “misleading” letters about a teacher accused of child sexual abuse at his former school and failed to report the allegations to a higher authority, a royal commission has found.

Nicholas Sampson, then the headmaster of Victoria’s Geelong Grammar, paid teacher Jonathan Harvey to retire early in 2004 to avoid any formal complaints of child sex abuse being made against him.

Harvey was later found guilty of sexually abusing a 16-year-old boy known as BLF by repeatedly plying him with alcohol, fondling his genitals and forcing him into a threesome with another man in the 1970s.

Mr Sampson told the commission he was alerted to allegations against Harvey by the victim’s brother, BLW, and conducted a “fairly cursory” investigation before asking Mr Harvey to retire early.

The commissioners found Mr Sampson should have notified the Victorian Institute of Teaching about the allegations and that he “should have made a documentary record of the reason [Harvey left the school]”.

Instead, Mr Sampson wrote letters to Harvey thanking him for his “outstanding service”, praising him as a “wonderful teacher, an outstanding housemaster, a fine and thoughtful colleague and a tremendous and committed schoolmaster”.

A second letter from Mr Sampson to Harvey confirmed an extra year of pay following his retirement “due to the exceptional service [he] offered”.

The commission dismissed Mr Sampson’s defence that the letters were for personal use: “The letters were plainly kept amongst the school’s formal records in relation to Harvey,” it found

 

“We also reject the submission that the letters were not misleading. No other records were produced which recorded the real reason for Harvey’s departure from the school, and no explanation was given as to why such documents were not produced.”

Mr Sampson, who became the headmaster of Cranbrook in 2012, an Anglican, $35,000-a-year school in Bellevue Hill, told the commission he was acting in the best interests of the victim, BLF, who did not want his identity revealed.

“We accept that Mr Sampson attempted to act in the best interests of BLF by securing Harvey’s resignation without disclosing his identity,” the Commission found. “It is clear, however, that he should have notified the Victorian Institute of Teaching.”

Royal Commission: Vatican has no test for paedophiles

In a separate sitting on Tuesday, the Commission also heard there was no requirement for the Catholic clergy to be screened for sexual attraction to children but that the Vatican does have a detailed assessment procedure for homosexuality.

The Catholic Church’s central authority spent 13 years developing a protocol on homosexual tendencies among potential priests but has stayed “silent” on the issue of paedophiles, the commission heard.

The commission is examining factors behind abuse claims in the Catholic church, with data showing seven per cent of priests were alleged offenders between 1950-2010.

“As I understand it, the Vatican is specific that you must test for homosexual tendencies but the Vatican is silent in that same way on testing for children,” Commissioner Andrew Murray said.

Sister Lydia Allen, who assesses candidates for the Seminary of the Good Shepherd in Homebush, said the Vatican was working on such a document.

“I have asked them if they have any documents on this situation of child abuse and they don’t yet … it’s part of a project they are going to work on,” she said.

“They do not have . . . anything that says, ‘You must assess for that’.

“However, I think it would be an unspoken rule. I don’t think it needs to be stated explicitly because it’s so obvious.”

David Leary, an academic and Franciscan friar, told the inquiry the assessment process was flawed.

“The first test for a candidate for either religious life or the seminary or for the priesthood is not a question about whether or not they’re homosexual,” he said.

“It’s about whether or not they are compassionate and that’s the thing that needs to be tested.”

Dr Leary said the Catholic church was “highly resistant” to understanding how its structures may have led to child sexual abuse.

“I don’t think we understand the psychology that underpins … child sexual abuse,” he said. “It’s really clear in every other jurisdiction except the church.”

Peter Thompson, rector of Vianney College in Wagga Wagga, told the commission it would be impossible to effectively screen every candidate for the priesthood.

“No one can infallibly predict that someone is not going to offend,” he said.

The hearing, before Justice Peter McClellan, continues.

College rocked by new sex scandal

TEACHER Andrew Richards has left Marlborough College after police launched an inquiry into his alleged possession of computer porn.

This week both police and the £22,000-a-year public school, where Princess Eugenie is a pupil, have confirmed that a teacher is being questioned over material found on his computer.

Neither the school or police would name the teacher but the Gazette has established that the man arrested was the housemaster of C3 House.

Sources within the police force and the school confirmed that it had been Richards who was arrested.

The maths teacher was arrested in his home at the school after police carried out an undercover operation two weeks ago and seized his computer. They took action after receiving information that Richards had downloaded obscene images on his computer, which is still being examined by a specialist team of officers.

After news of the arrest began to circulate in the town this week the school issued a statement saying: “Marlborough College can confirm that following the discovery of inappropriate material on a computer, one of our masters has left the school with immediate effect.

“There is no suggestion of improper behaviour with any pupil in the school.

“The College brought the matter to the attention of the relevant authorities, with whom we have been working closely.

“We understand that the police are carrying out an investigation into

this matter and therefore it would not be right for us to comment

further.”

The master of the public school, Nicholas Sampson, said he was unable to make any further comment.

Wiltshire police put out a statement saying: “On Saturday, April 30 as a result of information received from Marlborough College a male member of staff was arrested and interviewed at Salisbury police station.

“The man was subsequently bailed without being charged to return to Salisbury police station on a date in June.

“Inquiries are being completed to establish if any offences have been committed.”

Marlborough College, one of the top five public schools in the UK, has been rocked by several sex scandals in recent years.

In 2003 the school’s swimming pool manager, Mark Davies, was arrested after allegedly indecent pictures were found on his computer. Davies, brother of the Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies, was cautioned but not charged.

In 2002 there was another scandal when students sitting an exam saw pornographic pictures projected onto a screen. Teacher Richard Jowett, who had been invigilating, had been looking at pictures of naked women on his computer unaware that it was sending the images to an overhead screen in full view of pupils.

Career maker: Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, aspiring actress Cressida Bonas, poses with Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein  at a screening of the latter’s new film Big Eyes in London

Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas slopes off to hobnob with ANOTHER Epstein pal

When Prince Harry’s former girlfriend Cressida Bonas agreed to go skiing with her chum Princess Eugenie, she had no idea she would be caught up in the storm engulfing the Duke of York.

After Prince Andrew joined his daughter and her model friend at their £22,000-per-week chalet in the Alps, it was besieged by the world’s media amid a growing furore over claims Andrew had sex with an under-age girl ‘procured’ for him by his close friend, convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

So it was an unfortunate coincidence that Cressie’s first public engagement on returning to London on Sunday was a bash thrown by another of Epstein’s friends, film producer Harvey Weinstein.

Sloping off: Cressida has recently returned to London from spending time in Verbier in the Swiss Alps with her old friend Princess Eugenie and her family

Dressed in a midriff-baring outfit with her glossy mane worn loose, the 25-year-old posed next to Weinstein, 62, at a screening of his latest offering, Big Eyes.

(Lurking behind was Charles Dance, who in 2004 famously seduced vicar’s daughter Sophia Myles, 33 years his junior, and then cruelly dumped her.)

Despite the movie mogul’s long-standing association with Epstein — the two even made a failed bid for New York magazine in 2003 — the screening was an occasion not to be missed for aspiring thespian Cressida.

Weinstein, who is married to 38-year-old fashion designer Georgina Chapman, a friend of the Duchess of York, is known for mentoring young actresses.

(L to R) Harvey Weinstein, Princess Eugenie of York and Georgina Chapman at attends a VIP screening of ‘Lion’ hosted by Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman at Soho House on December 19, 2016 in London, England

He is credited with propelling Gwyneth Paltrow (pictured below) to A-list status, having collaborated with her on eight films, including Shakespeare In Love, for which she won an Oscar in 1999.

So it is understandable that Cressida, who scored a small part in Harvey’s forthcoming movie Tulip Fever, is keen to nurture her relationship with the Hollywood tycoon.

Aptly she plays a ‘society lady’ in the film, which is based on Deborah Moggach’s novel.

Since splitting with Harry, ambitious Cressida has been taking her acting career seriously.

Last month, she attended a private vocal training school on Orkney to improve her articulation and projection skills.

Meanwhile, her first play, There’s A Monster In The Lake, is being revived later this month at Waterloo Vaults.

Perhaps Cressie, who has given few signs she wants to rekindle her romance with Harry, has set her sights on an even more desirable prize than a prince: an Oscar. 

Geelong Grammar took no steps to protect students after abuse reports, says inquiry

14 Feb 2017

Royal commission releases report into prestigious Victorian private school criticising headmaster who went on to Eton College

The prestigious Geelong Grammar School’s long-time headmaster took no steps to bring in measures to protect students from a teacher alleged to have sexually abused pupils, a royal commission has found.

Geelong Grammar’s 1980-94 headmaster, John Lewis, allowed Jonathan Harvey to remain at the school despite knowing about allegations against him, the child sex abuse royal commission said.

It said by 1991, Lewis – who became headmaster of England’s elite Eton College after leaving Geelong Grammar – knew about allegations Harvey sexually abused students in 1982 and 1985 as well as allegations of inappropriate conduct with students.

“Despite this knowledge, Mr Lewis allowed Harvey to remain in a position where he had unsupervised access to students,” its report said. “Mr Lewis did not take any steps to prepare policies or procedures to protect the safety and welfare of the students at Geelong Grammar.”

Geelong Grammar’s 2001-04 headmaster Nicholas Sampson, now headmaster of Sydney’s Cranbrook School, organised for Harvey to be paid his entire 2005 salary to retire a year early after a staff member complained his brother had been abused by the teacher in the 1970s.

Sampson attempted to act in the victim’s best interests by securing Harvey’s resignation without disclosing the former student’s identity, but should have notified the Victorian Institute of Teaching, the commission found.

Sampson thanked the maths teacher for his outstanding service and did not record in writing the real reasons for Harvey’s departure, despite verbally informing others at the school about the allegations.

The commission said he should have made a documentary record of the reasons, but accepted Sampson’s evidence that he would now approach a similar situation very differently.

The royal commission also criticised Geelong Grammar for not investigating a boarder’s 1989 complaint that he was sexually abused, before expelling the 14-year-old for speaking out.

No member of staff notified police of the allegations, the commission said. Lewis should have ensured the allegation was investigated, it said.

The commission also found the school’s Highton campus master Robert John Bugg was involved in the boarder’s dismissal for discussing the sexual assault with other students.

Bugg must have believed the likely perpetrator was probably a staff member, it said. “In removing BIW from the school and not investigating the complaint, Mr Bugg failed to protect BIW’s interests and the interests of other students at Highton.”

Live-in boarding house assistant Philippe Trutmann was convicted for abusing BIW and 40 other Geelong Grammar students.

The commission found the school put its own financial interests before those of a student seeking compensation after being sexually abused by a teacher by not disclosing that it knew the teacher may have been jailed for pedophilia.

 Nick Hurd

Nick Hurd was one of 295 MPs who voted against an amendment to the Official Secrets Act that would have given witness protection to the victims of high-profile child abuse

Nick Hurd (Conservative), who voted against it, has a demonstrable relationship to Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire child abuser from the USA who is at the the heart of an ongoing child sex abuse scandal implicating Prince Andrew.

Epstein has been on the sex offenders register since 2008 after serving thirteen months of an eighteen month sentence for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution, and is currently facing allegations that he recruited a 15-year-old girl to act as a sex slave on a private jet for his friend and client, Prince Andrew.

The Conservatives Who Are Rewriting History on Wikipedia

The Battle of the Sock Puppets

Wikipedia is the front line in the battle to misinform the masses

Wikipedia is the front line in the battle to misinform the masses

The rule of thumb tends to be that the victorious rewrite history. At least that’s what we are told by those who we suppose to have been the winners. However, nowadays our history is written through collaboration and each example of this is an independent skirmish which makes up the wider global war. Wikipedia is on the front line of these daily battles. The modern encyclopedia is a one stop shop for knowledge on most subjects. Wikipedian’s are well aware that they are strange creatures, who often revel in their own obsessive compulsive natures. They argue with each other over details that would bore the majority of normal folk. But hidden amongst the millions of pages of Wikipedian’s conversations are many arguments over neutrality.

An article which I wrote about UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s father, Reverend Hubert Brasier, led to me investigate Wikipedia. Hubert Brasier’s Wikipedia page had vanished just after Theresa May became PM in July 2016. Two days after my story went viral Mr. Brasier’s Wikipedia page was reinstated under the pretence that it was of importance as Theresa May was now running for PM. If that was so then why would you decide to delete, or merge the page, when she had already become PM a year earlier? The battle over the Hubert Brasier Wiki page is still being fought. The page was soon re-merged with Theresa May’s page and information about Hubert’s work placements was again hidden away in the archives.

There was some backlash to my questions. One man suggested that I just didn’t understand how Wikipedia worked and I took that as a challenge. I wanted to find error in my reasoning but what I discovered instead was confirmation of corruption. I read thousands of conversations between Wikipedian’s who went into detail about the most mundane of semantics. I studied all the pages of interest, checking the controversial conservative and right wing figures of history. Enoch Powell, Oswald Moseley, Lord Sudeley, Margaret Thatcher, Ted Heath, all of them had a long history of page edits and numerous patterns began to emerge.

Wikipedia ‘Sock Puppets’ are Wikipedian’s who are using multiple accounts to force through edits and deletions. Once they are discovered to be suspected sock puppets they are banned from any further edits. But the damage they do before they are caught effects the history that we read. The agenda of a sock puppet is often to undermine pages by slowly taking away information from articles until they are eventually disjointed and full of errors. Then the pages are put forward for deletion or to be merged with other Wikipedia articles. On any page history, you can witness Wikipedian user names highlighted in red who have left, been banned for vandalism, or discovered to be a sock puppet for a different account. Their former profile pages usually show some detail of their punishment and gives you access to all their previous conversations leading to the account being suspended or banned.

Neve Selbert was the first active Wikipedia username to be written down in my little note book on multiple occasions. The account has been actively editing pages about senior UK Conservatives, and others connected with conservative politics, since 21st July 2015, nearly 2 months after the UK Conservatives won the 2015 General Election. Neve Selbert describes himself as a secret monarchist and his account has been suspended on numerous occasions. On his Wikipedia profile page he says that he is sorry for things he has done before on Wikipedia and promises to make it right. It isn’t long into my investigation of the Neve Selbert user account before I stumbled across a group that he is a member of on Wikipedia. The group is the Wikiproject Conservatism and states their intentions as ‘a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia’s coverage of topics related to conservatism’. The group is large, organised and global. It’s quite difficult for anyone on the left of politics to imagine an impartial conservative, let alone a group of impartial conservatives. It is clear that the right wing of politics is using every possible tool to rewrite history in a way that suits their narrative. They wish to erase all evidence that points to the average conservative being manipulative, false, incompetent, and out of touch.

There are groups who oppose these attempts to rewrite a conservative history of the world. But it seems that for every one person fighting for truth and impartiality, there are two more fighting to hide facts. It is obvious that the real history will be written by those who organise. For now the global war of information trundles onward. We most all fight disinformation, not only in the future but also in the present.


Collection of many articles re: clergy abuse


The report of Dame Moira Gibb into the Church of England’s handling of the abusive bishop Peter Ball makes shocking reading. It reveals a concern for appearance over reality, for the institution over the individual and, most of all, for the strong and powerful over the weak and vulnerable. From the moment the first victims came forward, the response of the church up to the highest level was one of institutional self-protection.

The complaint was not reported to the police, but only to the archbishop of Canterbury, then George Carey, who persisted long past the point of reason in hoping that his colleague was innocent. The police were not told until after the first victim to come forward, Neil Todd, had attempted suicide twice – and even then it was his parents and not the church who made the complaint. The diocese of Gloucester hired a former policeman to investigate, and if possible discredit, the witnesses.

After news of Bishop Ball’s arrest broke, Lambeth Palace received seven independent accusations about his earlier behaviour. Two were seen by Archbishop Carey, who replied to them personally. Only one of the seven, though, was passed to the police, and that the least damning. Lord Carey’s message to the diocese after Bishop Ball was arrested urged prayers for the bishop and said nothing about victims. After Bishop Ball had retired on spurious grounds of ill health and accepted a caution – though remaining in denial about his crimes – Lord Carey worked to have him rehabilitated. True, he did so with less ingenuity than Peter Ball’s identical twin Michael, himself a bishop, who has admitted allowing his twin to deputise for him at “one or two events”, even after his disgrace.

Lord Carey nevertheless gave Peter Ball £12,000 from church funds, leading to loud complaints from the brothers, who had wanted £20,000. He deliberately kept Peter Ball’s name off the Lambeth blacklist of unemployable clergy; he had the disgraced bishop to stay at Lambeth Palace twice; he attempted to find him work in South Africa (writing to Desmond Tutu for this scheme) and in prisons; he wrote to an American parish that “Peter was possibly the victim of a plot but that, of course, cannot be proved”. Lord Carey’s only objection to a full rehabilitation of Bishop Ball as a retired bishop was that it might provoke unfavourable publicity.

This was disgraceful, and the result has been a deserved disgrace. But it was part of a culture of privilege, power and make-believe that corrupted more than one bishop. Lord Carey’s successor, Rowan Williams did nothing to help Bishop Ball but very little and very slowly to hinder him either.

The Gibb Report – pg 10
There is evidence of sexual abuse and improper conduct by Ball during the 1970s and 1980s. Whilst prior of the CGA Peter Ball combined those duties with several other roles, including three
years as a vicar in Staffordshire. While there he established another CGA community and we have heard evidence of an incident
involving one of the community members being beaten by Ball. That account was given to us by someone who went on to be abused by B
all himself and to make a statement about this in the prosecution of Ball in 2015.
Another man who was a member of Ball’s community for more than thirteen years told us of an incident in 1977 when Ball, complaining of phlebitis, asked the man to massage his legs. The
man started to do so but stopped when he realised that Ball, unclothed below the waist, was sexually aroused.
3.2.8
As well as meeting boys and young men through the Give a Year to God scheme, Ball was a frequent visitor to some public schoo
ls and was a governor of several schools. He had a reputation as an entertaining and charismatic speaker and, having been invited into schools, he went on to form associations with a number of individual boys, sometimes offering intensive one to one “counselling”. Of the 18 victims cited when Ball was sentenced in 2015, five had encountered Ball while they were still at school. At least one abusive encounter took place on school premises.
3.2.9
Ball also had associations during the 1970s and 1980s with other priests in the Diocese of Chichester, who we now know were involved in abusive behaviour.
These matters are considered below, in the section of this report which considers the extent to which Ball may have been part of a network of abusive priests.
3.2.10
Ball’s career and influence in the Church continued to thrive throughout the 1980s, though there is also evidence of rumours and rumblings of disquiet about his activities. In 1985 he was a candidate for the position of Bishop of Norwich but diocesan representatives opposed his appointment. They are noted to have reported that ‘…we needed someone married and that Norwich really could not take a group of young men living with the bishop in the bishop’s house – nor was this pastorally wise for the bishop.’
3.2.11

Ball was appointed as Bishop of Gloucester in April 1992. Records indicate that the appointment process deviated in part from standard practice – he was chosen despite being the second of two options considered . There was initially a measure of resistance within the Gloucester Diocese, linked to Ball’s Anglo-Catholicism.

Ball was also opposed to the ordination of women whereas the Synod in Gloucester supported this change.
3.2.12
Former members of the CGA told us that Ball’s lifestyle at that time was not consistent with his avowed austerity. We have similarly heard from former staff at Bishopscourt, the official residence of the Bishop of Gloucester, of an extravagant
way of life.
Household expenditure on food and alcohol increased significantly
following Ball’s arrival and the house was expensively decorated and furnished.
The exception was Ball’s bedroom which was small and sparsely furnished but contained three mattresses. Unlike his predecessors Ball chose a bedroom at the far end of the residence, away from the staff. Ball received many visitors, usually young men, some of whom resided at Bishopscourt for some time
3.3.2
Neil Todd and others subsequently reported that Ball repeatedly encouraged him to engage in ‘spiritual’ exercises involving nakedness and cold showers. In September 1992 Ball suggested that Todd should agree to be beaten while naked so that his body should ‘ bear the marks’. This beating did not take place because of the
intervention of a member of domestic staff at Bishopscourt, Mr J,
who had become increasingly concerned at Ball’s lifestyle and specifically his treatment of Neil Todd.
3.3.3
Neil Todd told Mr J that Ball intended to whip him and that he did not want this to happen. In order to avoid a confrontation with Ball,
Mr J and his wife took Todd away with them on holiday. When they returned Neil Todd did not come back with them but is believed to have gone to London. They have told us that Ball behaved as if nothing had happened.
3.3.4
They remained worried and, later that year, came to London to share their concerns with Bishop John Yates. He was well known to them as he had been Bishop of Gloucester immediately before Ball’s appointment. He was now the Bishop at Lambeth, the head of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s staff, and was to play a
significant part in subsequent events. They have told us that they set out their concerns in detail, referring specifically to the proposed flagellation.
3.3.5
Bishop Yates is said to have listened but did not commit himself to any action. He suggested that if they remained concerned they might speak to another bishop they knew locally, the suffragan Bishop of Tewkesbury, Bishop Jeremy Walsh.
Bishop Yates subsequently wrote to the staff in December 1992, thanking them for their concern but expressing regret that
“confidences had been broken possibly by police here in London”.
(No further clarification of this comment has emerged from our
enquiries).
3.3.6
Neil Todd returned to Bishopscourt in October 1992 and there was a further encounter involving explicitly sexual activity with Ball. Todd was very distressed by this, left Bishopscourt and went to Crawley Down and then to Brixton to stay with the LBSC. In mid-
November Neil Todd attempted suicide. Then, apparently
because he had learned of another young man going to stay at Bishopscourt and feared for his welfare, Todd decided that he should disclose what had happened to him.
3.3.7
He spoke to Mr A who contacted a local vicar in Brixton (where Mr A lived). That led to contact with Bishop Roy Williamson, Bishop of  Southwark.
Bishop  Williamson told us that he remembered that they told him about Ball being involved in naked prayer. He spoke to Bishop Kemp, as Ball’s superior when he had been in Sussex. On 25th November Mr A  spoke directly to Bishop Kemp and told him of Neil Todd’s disclosures, and of his suicide attempt.
3.3.8
Bishop Kemp immediately contacted Ball, who denied any sexual relationship with Todd. Ball then spoke to a superintendent in Gloucester Police, a friend of his, who gave him some advice about his situation. Ball faxed Bishop Kemp a statement stating that he had not had a sexual relationship with Todd but then asked him
to destroy the fax. Bishop Kemp did so.
3.3.9
On 4th December Bishop Kemp met Mr A and the local vicar, and offered to see Neil Todd himself. That meeting took place on 10th December. Todd confirmed that there had been sexual contact between him and Ball at Ball’s request. Todd was very upset, and said that Ball should admit what he had done and should no longer
be a bishop. Bishop Kemp said that he would reflect on what he had been told.
……
3.4.4. Bishop Michael Ball wrote to Lord Carey at the end of the year referring to the support his brother was receiving from prominent figures including, he claimed, two Cabinet Ministers and the Prince of Wales
3.5.4 In mid-January Bishop Michael Ball wrote to a senior
official at Lambeth Palace.
His letter begins:
“Thank you for all your help over this …and thank you too for going back today to try to make some preliminary overtures to the Home Office”.
…..
Mr D recorded being told by Mr F that the police investigation had revealed ‘very serious allegations….from all over the country, covering many years of [Ball’s] life in the ministry. Statements
had been obtained from young men in Cambridge, Oxford, Durham and Newcastle, and many other allegations had come to light ‘.
The monk had also heard from Mr C, then a student at Westcott House Theological College in Cambridge, that there were allegations of mutual masturbation involving Ball and ‘
various boys up at Cambridge at this time’
(implying that these relationships started before the youths went to Cambridge).
From mid-1993 the emphasis of concern at Lambeth Palace was on
whether, when and how Ball should be rehabilitated. Various initial steps were considered and discussed with Ball. The Archbishop of Cape Town, The Rt Revd Desmond Tutu, and Lord Carey corresponded about an invitation to Ball to minister
in a diocese in South Africa. There was a suggestion that Ball might minister in prisons. These options were not acceptable to Ball. The energies of the Ball brothers were channelled into a drive to
secure Peter Ball’s return to public ministry.
Peter Ball spent two days at Lambeth Palace in the first week of September 1993 as a guest of the Archbishop. This was followed by two letters from Bishop Michael Ball in the same week asking that Lord Carey do more to progress Ball’s return to ministry. Lord Carey wrote to Bishop Michael reminding him that he had not placed
Peter Ball’s name on the List, and that he had considered this carefully.
The bishop presciently felt that Ball would “use any limited permission as a lever to extort more and more out of you, and perhaps other bishops, and you will have no peace”.
During 1995 Ball’s gradual return to ministry and the erosion of the Church’s opposition continued. In January Lord Carey gave permission for Ball to go to the USA to lead Holy Week and Easter services in a parish there.
In his correspondence with that parish the Archbishop wrote that
“Peter was Bishop of Gloucester but was deprived of his
episcopal ministry two years ago because of a criminal act against a minor…Peter was possibly the victim of a plot but that, of course, cannot be proved”.
In January 1996 Lord Carey agreed that Ball should be permitted to preach at a public school, provided that the school were made aware of possible hostile press interest. He further agreed in March that Ball could conduct confirmations and preach at two more schools. Ball was still the President of the Anglican Fellowship in Scouting and Guiding and the Archbishop agreed that he could attend their Annual General Meeting and celebrate the Eucharist at their headquarters in Gilwell Park.
3.7.17
In April 1996 Ball, who had not seen Lord Carey face to face since November 1994 asked for a meeting, ostensibly to hand over correspondence between Ball and the Prince of Wales with a view to it being held for posterity in the Lambeth Palace Library.
(The Prince himself was not involved).
Bishop Kemp was to retire in 2001. Shortly before his retirement, following correspondence from Bishop Michael Ball, Bishop Kemp appointed Peter Ball as Emeritus Canon of Chichester–an award usually made in recognition of long and honourable service.
The CPO in Bath and Wells became involved in setting up the forensic assessment but experienced a great deal of opposition. She has reported that Ball began a campaign of telephone calls and letters disputing the decision. He threatened to involve the Prince of Wales.
The CPO was contacted by a number of senior establishment figures who supported Ball’s resistance, including a member of the House of Lords and a senior cleric.
Ball’s connections with Pritchard and Cotton are well – evidenced. An account of Ball abusing a 13 year old boy in the presence of Pritchard and Cotton led to one of the charges which he did not admit when imprisoned. This connection and others prompt a consideration of whether Ball’s activities extended to involvement in some sort of organised abuse.
…there had been an organised “ring” of abusive priests. However some felt that there had been particular issues relating to the Chichester diocese, where the conditions were right for “like minded” people to come together.
There has been public speculation that the response of the Church (and of public authorities) to the allegations against Peter Ball, his caution and his subsequent requests to return to active public ministry, was improperly influenced by Ball’s connections with prominent and influential figures, and that he was able to use those
connections to obtain preferential treatment by the Church (as well as by public authorities). There is no doubt that Ball did have such connections. There is also evidence that he sought to use his connections to his advantage in his dealings with the Church authorities. For example, in a letter to Lord Carey in August 1998 he said “I get more and more invitations….to let you know some of them I have spoken to 400 voluntary workers in Eastbourne with the Lord Lieutenant…I am shortly to preach to the Grenadier Guards in their Chapel; preach at Wellington College, confirm at Radley College and next year preach at Dartmouth to what looks like a full turn out of the Royal Family “.
Ball clearly intimates on many occasions, to Lord Carey and others, that he enjoys the status of confidant of the Prince of Wales. He ensured that Lord Carey was aware that he corresponded with the Prince (see paragraph 3.7.17 above) and that he visited Highgrove House. There are frequent references in Ball’s letters to Lord Carey and others to his attending royal functions and to meeting members of the Royal Family.
The CPS has publicly stated that it had neither received nor seen any correspondence from a member of the Royal Family when Ball was under investigation in 1992/93. It has disclosed in slightly redacted form eleven supportive letters received at that time from other prominent people in society. Those people were Lord Carey (as discussed above) , another former Archbishop of Canterbury
Lord Donald Coggan, one diocesan bishop, two MPs, two public
school headmasters, one former headmaster, senior staff members from another public school and Lord Justice Lloyd.
6.1.6
Lord Lloyd continued to support Ball after his caution.
In late 1994 Ball was considering trying to persuade the police or the DPP that the handling of his case had been flawed because publicity had prevented his mounting a proper defence. Lord Lloyd
reminded Ball that he had admitted the offence by accepting the caution.
6.1.7
Lord Lloyd subsequently went to see Bishop Sargeant who had by then succeeded Bishop Yates as Bishop at Lambeth. According to
Bishop Sargeant’s note of the meeting, Lord Lloyd disagreed with the policy of barring Ball from public ministry, and was suggesting a way in which that might be reversed. Bishop Sargeant’s notes
describe this as an ‘old boy arrangement’ , where a ‘powerful group of friends (were)…coming to Peter’s aid’.
Ball’s links with public schools
6.2.1
We have noted the links between Ball and public schools, and have been reminded by a number of survivors of the extent to which Ball had connections with such schools. We have found specific references to ministry in seventeen public schools. He was a governor of at least one school for many years and that school has
confirmed that he had unsupervised contact with pupils there
after he had been cautioned . He continued to have links with that school until at least 2007.
6.2.2
Ball’s connections with schools often arose from his personal relationships with the heads of those schools. Some of them championed his cause when he was under investigation in 1992/93, and continued to support him publicly following his resignation.
6.2.3
In the course of this review we contacted every school with which Ball is known to have had any connection. None has reported any concerns about his conduct.
6.2.4
However we know of instances where troubled teenagers from
some of these schools were directed towards Ball for advice and help. That is what happened to one of the complainants whose letter to the Church was not passed to police in 1992.
This boy was subjected to an improper approach from Ball. We have heard directly from one man who, at the age of 15, was seen on school premises by Ball and asked to masturbate in front of him. That man had also contacted the Church about this in 1992.
We now know of five public schools whose pupils were abused by Ball.
6.2.5
We have not seen evidence of Ball abusing boys in school after his caution. But one of the first ways in which he sought to rest
ore his good standing was by re-establishing links with schools. There seems to have been no coherence in the Church’s control over such activities. We have seen that in 1996 Lord Carey agreed
to Ball carrying out priestly duties in schools. Some years later he raised concerns about Ball’s presence in schools, apparently forgetting that he had already sanctioned this. There is evidence that Ball then sustained his connections with some public schools for many years–he himself claimed to have been involved
with between 20 and 25 schools after he had been cautioned.

Questions over churchman’s charity trip: Andrew Brown reports on a leading Anglican’s visit to South Africa with a homosexual friend

4 December 1992

THE MOST powerful layman in the Church of England took his homosexual companion around South Africa on a trip for an Anglican charity, the Independent has learnt. He later repaid to the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge the extra costs involved.

The bills, showing the two men shared a room on the trip in 1990, were approved by Patrick Gilbert, the society’s then managing director, who resigned suddenly last year and is now facing charges of indecent assault.

The Rev Sir Derek Pattinson, as he now is, was secretary-general of the Church of England’s General Synod for 18 years, until 1990, when he was knighted on retirement and embarked on training for ordination.

He was also chairman of the executive committee at the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, a 300-year-old missionary society and publishing house, currently being investigated by the Charity Commissioners after revelations about the extravagance of Mr Gilbert, its last managing director.

Sir Derek set off on a prolonged fact-finding trip around southern Africa at SPCK’s expense in the autumn of 1990, while he was still secretary-general of the Synod.

In Johannesburg he was joined, by pre-arrangement, by Barnaby Miln, a homosexual activist who had been the one of the youngest Justices of the Peace in England.

For most of the years when Sir Derek, 62, was training for the priesthood, he lived with Mr Miln in a flat in Westminster owned by the Diocese of London.

Dr Graham Leonard, the traditionalist who has now announced he plans to leave the Church of England in protest against women priests, was then Bishop of London. He agreed to Sir Derek’s ordination without the customary investigation of his suitability by the Church’s Advisory Council on Ministry.

‘It’s perfectly true that (Sir Derek) never went to a selection conference, because technically he was the employer of the staff who were arranging it,’ Dr Leonard said.

Mr Miln claims that Dr Leonard knew the set-up. ‘The Daily Mail chap, Tony Doran, had got through the outer door on the morning of the deaconing and accused (Sir Derek) to his face of being a homosexual. And Derek sent him away,’ he said.

‘The telephone then started ringing, and Graham Leonard decided to go ahead . . . The organist was told to play full blast, should there be a protest; and at the private do afterwards. Graham Leonard came up to me and said: ‘I did you a favour, Barnaby.’ ‘

Dr Leonard attended a packed General Synod debate in 1987 when Sir Derek was on the platform and Mr Miln, then a lay member, announced that he was a homosexual.

The Synod went on to pass by an overwhelming majority, a motion condemning ‘homosexual genital activity’.

Before Sir Derek could become a priest, Dr Leonard retired, and was replaced by the Rt Rev David Hope, the former bishop of Wakefield. He compelled Sir Derek to return to the theological college at Mirfield, Yorkshire, for an extra term, which he had hoped to skip. But he did ordain him.

Dr Hope said: ‘I knew that they were sharing rooms or a flat. But it was put to me that Barnaby Miln was looking after Derek, caring for or about him. I would presume that their domestic arrangements were satisfactory and wholesome because I was not told otherwise.’

Sir Derek serves as a curate in St Gabriel’s, Warwick Square, central London, whose rector is David Skeogh. Mr Skeogh, a ‘high’ Anglo-Catholic, is a former schoolteacher who served as Dr Leonard’s domestic chaplain both in Truro and London.

While Sir Derek was away at Mirfield last spring Mr Miln began a relationship with David O’Reilly, a young Irishman. He had previously been attracted to a handsome Australian teacher, whose athletic interests led him to take up an exercise programme, which resulted in a knee injury.

Mr Miln said he was due for a cartilage operation at the end of March and ‘needed somebody to get me around. And Derek was due back from Mirfield for the ordination and so forth. So we needed somebody to drive us around.’

David O’Reilly was Mr Miln’s chauffeur and lover from April until he died in mysterious circumstances behind King’s Cross railway station, north London, on 6 August this year.

On 20 May, for reasons which are still unclear, two police cars pulled over Mr Miln’s car as Mr O’Reilly was driving him along the Westway in London. The two men were taken separately to police stations, and interrogated for six hours. The car was searched, but nothing unusual was found except some leaflets promoting the Anglican Centre in Rome.

Mr O’Reilly introduced Mr Miln to hard drugs very soon after their relationship began. Mr Miln said that in very little time he was spending hundreds of pounds a week on heroin and cocaine.

On 6 August, Mr Miln’s 45th birthday, Mr O’Reilly drove him to King’s Cross. He parked there, left Mr Miln in the car, and went to buy some cocaine. What happened next is unclear. Mr Miln believes it was murder: the Crown Prosecution Service found no case to answer, when police passed on papers of the case. In any case, Mr O’Reilly fell, or was pushed, under the wheels of a lorry and died.

Sir Derek collected Mr Miln from the police station where he had been questioned for hours by officers wanting to know why he was in the car and what Mr O’Reilly had been doing. He denied everything, but admitted on two separate occasions afterwards that Mr O’Reilly had in fact been buying cocaine for him.

The relationship between Sir Derek and Mr Miln deteriorated, though the two men continued to live together.

Since Mr Gilbert’s forced retirement last year from the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, the new managing director, Paul Chandler, has completely revised its financial controls. He said yesterday that none of the society’s travel budget came from contributions made by the public.

Sir Derek, when challenged over the allegations, replied that he had paid by cheque for Mr Miln’s share of the hotel bills in South Africa immediately after his return. But he could not produce a record of this.

He has disappeared and cannot be contacted. Dr Hope has ordered him to take medical leave for six weeks, and will review his position at the end of that time.

The Church can’t be allowed to carry on marking its own homework

25 Jun 2017

The Church can’t be allowed to carry on marking its own homework

The Church concealed evidence of criminality and colluded to protect an abusive bishop. Only external oversight will guarantee that church safeguarding practices comply with secular standards, argues Richard Scorer.

With the publication of the Gibb report the Church of England has finally admitted what Ball’s victims have long believed ­– that senior figures in the church, in particular former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey, concealed evidence of Ball’s criminality and colluded to protect him. Where do we go from here?

At the heart of the Ball scandal, as I explained on this site in July last year, is that in early 1993, when Ball was under police investigation for a single offence, against a young man called Neil Todd, Lambeth Palace was aware of no fewer than 6 other allegations against Ball, but failed to pass these to the police. Worse still, in full knowledge of these other allegations, Carey wrote to the police to tell them that the Todd allegation was “most unrepresentative” of Ball’s behaviour.

When I raised the spectre of cover up at a hearing of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) in March 2016, Lord Carey told the media that he had “no knowledge of the matters” I was referring to. But the Gibb report now lays bare Carey’s intimate involvement in the maneouvres by which Ball escaped justice for a further 22 years, and concludes that Carey’s failure to pass evidence to the police “must give rise to a perception of deliberate concealment”.

Self-evidently, the Ball case involves more than a “perception” of concealment; it involves concealment, pure and simple, so one wonders whether Gibb’s wording here was softened during the process of “Maxwellisation”, by which those criticised in a report are given the opportunity, pre-publication, to challenge the report’s conclusions. Of course, the church’s “Abuse of Faith”, as Gibb calls it, went well beyond concealment. Even after Ball’s caution and resignation in 1993, senior church leaders denigrated his victims. They allowed Ball to regain much of his standing within the Church, and many of his preaching privileges. They allowed him to carry out priestly duties in schools. Knowing full well that he was the subject of multiple allegations of sex abuse, they sought to rehabilitate him. And then under Rowan Williams, Carey’s successor, progress in tackling sex abuse generally within the Church was “lamentably slow”.

An unavoidable question is whether, in concealing evidence of Ball’s criminality, senior figures in the Church of England, including Carey, may have committed criminal offences, the most obvious one being misconduct in public office. The Ball case itself established that a Church of England bishop is a public official. Misconduct in public office is defined as “a public officer wilfully neglecting to perform his duty and/or wilfully misconducting himself to such a degree as to amount to an abuse of the public’s trust in the office holder, without reasonable excuse or justification”. Plainly, there is a case to answer.

Some will say that police resources are better spent on contemporary challenges than on prosecuting failings which occurred over 20 years ago. But this would be to ignore the gravity of what occurred, and its long lasting consequences, which included the suicide of Neil Todd, who over two decades was vilified by the Church as a liar and a gold-digger. According to Gibb, Carey decided that Ball was “basically innocent”. The Archbishop of Canterbury decided, in other words, that he was entitled to act as judge and jury and substitute his own view for that of the criminal courts. But the law is not just for little people; it applies to Archbishops as well. So the question of criminal offences has to be addressed.

What of the wider implications of the report? In its forensic analysis of the factual detail of this tawdry cover up, Gibb is a pretty strong piece of work. In its analysis of the church culture which led to this scandal, and especially in terms of recommendations for change, the report is much weaker.

On religious culture, and the manifold ways in which it can be misused by abusers, the report certainly makes a number of pertinent observations. It notes that Ball’s abuse was “charged with religious intensity” and that in committing his offences Ball “exploited the significance of ritual, particularly in the Anglo-Catholic tradition”. For Ball religious rites became “a mask for abuse, and theology was used as a way of justifying abuse”. The evil of what he did was “compounded by his message that this made the victims more special and more holy”.

Gibb also acknowledges that religious communities of the type established by Ball, which purport to offer support and spiritual guidance, are peculiarly likely to attract vulnerable people who may be troubled and seeking direction, and for that same reason are also likely to attract perpetrators who seek to use the respect and faith attaching to religion as a cover for abuse. As Gibb notes, such communities are also often closed communities, lacking the external oversight so crucial for preventing abuse.

Finally, Gibb reiterates that in Christian organisations abusers can sometimes be protected from accountability by a distorted concept of forgiveness. All these points are well made, and help to explain why it is that although many secular institutions have also suffered from abuse scandals, religious institutions seem to be particularly susceptible to such scandals and ill-equipped to confront them. However, in my view the report fails to acknowledge something even darker in the Church of England – a culture of bullying and intimidation of against those who speak out. This culture has been powerfully described by Rev Graham Sawyer, a Ball survivor who is also a Church of England vicar, and who has experienced the church’s treatment of whistleblowers at first hand. For the public, who increasingly tend to regard the Church of England as slightly ridiculous but largely benign, this aspect of the church’s culture may come as a surprise, but it certainly exists, even if it is hidden under a veneer of English politeness.

In terms of proposals for change, the report’s 12 recommendations are astonishingly anodyne, and seem to be grounded in an assumption that all is now basically well with safeguarding practice in the Church, although also buried in the report is an acknowledgement that diocesan safeguarding work has often been inadequately resourced.

Most extraordinary, however, is the absence of any insistence that abuse allegations be reported to external authorities under a mandatory reporting regime. This is the obvious and undeniable lesson from Ball – the Church of England cannot be allowed to carry on marking its own homework. Of course, Gibb may be assuming, as I also find many journalists now do, that reporting of allegations to external authorities is already the norm. But because child abuse often takes many years, even decades, to come to light, and given the history now exposed, we cannot presume this with any confidence. The main lesson of Gibb, although the report does not say so, is that only external oversight will guarantee that church safeguarding practices comply with secular standards. We need mandatory reporting.

Captain William Duncan Phipps VIII (1856 to 1925 United Kingdom)

William Duncan Phipps VIII (b.1882) was a distant cousin of Sargent, and he is listed at some length in ‘Epes Sargent of Gloucester (Massachusetts) and his Descendants’, Boston 1923, pp. 70-1. Sargent painted the American mother Jessie Percy Butler Duncan VII, wife of William Phipps, an Englishman, in a stunning portrait of 1884 that belonged to Joyce Grenfell (also a Phipps).

William the son was educated at Eton and on HMS Britannia and during the Great War served on the Iron Duke under Jellicoe and later under Beatty.

He got his own command in 1917 on HMS Pagasus. He married Pamela Ross in 1917 and had two sons, one of whom, Simon William it is believed became Bishop of Lincoln, and who was a great friend of Princess Margaret

Simon Phipps was educated at Eton and, while still a young subaltern, was picked out by the then Queen Elizabeth (now the Queen Mother) as a suitable escort for her younger daughter, Princess Margaret. He went on, in 1968, to be appointed Suffragan Bishop of Horsham, and, in 1974, to become Bishop of Lincoln.

He became a star turn in the Footlights review, and, in 1949, was elected the club’s president. His amateur theatricals appealed to Princess Margaret, herself no mean mimic, and, on one memorable visit to Balmoral, he was roped in to play charades by the then Queen Elizabeth, the future bishop being obliged to march around ahead of King George VI carrying an umbrella in imitation of a crozier.

After training for the ministry at Westcott House, Cambridge, Phipps was ordained in 1950, and served his title as assistant curate at Huddersfield parish church. In 1953, he was invited back to Trinity College as chaplain. This was the year when Princess Margaret fell in love with the divorcé Peter Townsend, and it was to Phipps that, during the next three years, while struggling with her conscience and the constitutional issues, the princess turned for spiritual advice. At one time, they were in almost daily contact.

Later, he became godfather to her son, Lord Linley, after her marriage to Anthony Armstrong-Jones.

While still at Trinity College, Phipps also forged, with Mervyn Stockwood, one of his warmest episcopal friendships. He and his wife, Mary, remained loyal and loving friends to the future Bishop of Southwark throughout his lonely years in retirement.

He also became involved in a row with a retired Guards colonel over the sale of some church land, and in 1980 his thoughts in the Diocesan Letter on the subject of homosexuality caused widespread shock.

In 1965, Phipps was made an honorary canon of Coventry, and three years later, with Princess Margaret in the congregation at Southwark Cathedral, he was consecrated as Suffragan Bishop of Horsham.
It was in 1973, while still in the Chichester diocese, aged 52 and seemingly a confirmed bachelor, that Phipps surprised and delighted his friends by getting married. His wife, Mary Welch, was a daughter of Sir Charles Palmer, of the biscuit manufacturers, Huntley & Palmer, the widow of a clergyman, and a practising psychiatrist.
He retired to his wife’s enchanting Sussex home, with views to Chanctonbury Ring, being invited, most unusually, to act as an honorary assistant bishop in two dioceses, Southwark and Chichester.

Following the war, having read History at Trinity, he studied for the priesthood at Westcott House, Cambridge. A talented writer of lyrics, he was President of Footlights in 1949.

In 1953, after a short spell as a curate in Huddersfield, Phipps was appointed Chaplain at Trinity. That appointment was followed by ten years at Coventry as an Industrial Chaplain, during which time he lived in a small council flat on a new housing estate. The modesty of his surroundings did not prevent him fromentertaining his long-time friend, Princess Margaret, “to the great interest of his neighbours”.[1]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Phipps_(bishop)

Not long after his ordination, when he was chaplain of Trinity College, Cambridge, his gifts were put at the service of Princess Margaret during the crisis that arose out of her relationship with the divorced Group Captain Peter Townsend. Phipps and the Princess were close friends, having met frequently through his father’s position as a Gentleman Usher to King George VI.

He often accompanied her to hunt balls and other social events, and it was sometimes suggested that they were involved romantically, but this was never the case, and his role was always that of counsellor.

His wife Mary, whom he married in 1973 and who predeceased him, was a psychiatrist and the widow of James Welch, a former Head of Religious Broadcasting at the BBC.

 

Included in the group were: The Lord Bishop of Lincoln (Rt. Rev. Simon Phipps), Mrs. Phipps, the Dean of Lincoln (V. Rev. The Hon. O. W. Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes), the leader of the Lincoln City Council (Cclr. Mrs. Bates) and officers of the Central Council.

The Lord Bishop of Lincoln (Guild Patron) said it gave him very great pleasure to be present at the gathering of so many bellringers from different parts of the country and he wished them well in their deliberations at their Conference next day.

Despite his guilty plea for a heinous crime, the Bishop of Lincoln, the Right Rev Simon Phipps, described Mark Brydges Kiddle as “an extremely diligent, imaginative and energetic priest” and told the court that Kiddle would eventually be given another parish.

This is a typical example of how the church has always dealt with it’s nonce clergy.  They simply move them on as if that will somehow rehabilitate them and stop them reoffending.  We know full well from Anthony McSweeney’s example that it doesn’t work like that.  A paedophile is a paedophile is a paedophile, it doesn’t matter what surroundings you put them in, and if you’ve ever seen the film ‘Spotlight‘ it reinforces this issue.
