The source of the fundamentally misleading article in the Mail on Sunday was Richard Hoskins, a criminologist who was hired by police as an ‘expert’ on Operation Conifer.

Hoskins claims that he was acting as a whistle-blower, but his disclosures related to a tiny part of the operation that police did not rank as the most crediblee.

Wiltshire Police strongly condemned him, and a spokesman said that Hoskins had been removed from the National Crime Agency’s list of recognised experts.

Funny that Guy Adams doesn’t mention the man advising OpConifer who turned into a woman and back again whose kids found suspicious deaths.

Hoskins couldn’t grab enough coverage when he changed from Richard to Rachel but avoided publicity when he reverted to being Richard. Why?

Who needs enemies when you have a friend like Rachel?


One tool of choice to smear survivors and evidence is  The Daily Mail

Here is the 4th Rothermere & still peddling hate.

Who is Lord Rothermere?

The 4th Viscount Rothermere – or Jonathan Harmsworth – inherited Associated Newspapers (now DMG Media) when his father Vere died in 1998

He became the fourth Rothermere to take the title and become chairman of the media group

He was previously managing editor of the Evening Standard, which the Rothermeres bought in 1980

Lord Rothermere is ranked 120th on the Times Rich List, with an estimated fortune of £720m

The Harmsworth brothers Alfred and Harold founded the Daily Mail in 1896 – the “Viscount Rothermere” title was created for Harold Harmsworth in 1919

Before WWII, Harold Harmsworth praised Adolf Hitler and in 1934 penned a Daily Mail article headlined “Hurrah for the Blackshirts” celebrating Oswald Mosley’s British fascists

Criminologist says there is no credible evidence in Ted Heath investigation

Police: If Ted Heath was alive today we’d quiz him under caution on child abuse claims

  • Operation Conifer inquiry into Edward Heath will be made public on October 5
  • Findings will reveal about 40 people made paedophile claims against Sir Edward
  • Chief Constable Mike Veale’s report will say seven of which are ‘credible’ claims
  • Sir Edward died in 2005 aged 89 – if alive today he’d be interviewed under caution, says the MoS

Child sexual abuse claims made against Sir Edward Heath by seven of his alleged victims are serious enough that police would have questioned him under caution if he were still alive.

That is the astonishing verdict of a controversial two-year investigation into the former Tory Prime Minister, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The explosive findings of the Operation Conifer inquiry into Sir Edward, led by Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale, will be made public on October 5. It is believed the findings will reveal that about 40 people made paedophile claims against Sir Edward, who died in 2005 aged 89, covering five decades.

According to Whitehall sources, Mr Veale’s report will say seven of the alleged victims are ‘credible’ and describe the same pattern of behaviour by their ‘abuser’.

A Government source said an ‘interview under caution’ is, in effect, the strongest action that Mr Veale could recommend with regard to Sir Edward.

After an ‘interview with caution’ police would send a file to the Crown Prosecution Service, which would decide whether to prosecute. ‘It was never the task of Operation Conifer to decide whether Sir Edward was guilty, and clearly there was never any question of recommending prosecution in this case,’ a Government source said.

An ‘interview under caution’ usually takes place at a police station with the consent of the accused. If they refuse to attend, they can be arrested.

Mr Veale’s report will say testimonies by around a dozen more ‘victims’ cannot be relied on because they may have been ‘damaged’ by their experiences; a further dozen involve so called ‘third party’ allegations, where people have come forward to describe the alleged abuse of others.

A number of claims have been dismissed as bogus or fantasy.

Mr Veale has faced fierce criticism from senior Tories and mandarins who worked for Heath when he was in power in the 1970s.

They have accused police of wasting £2 million of public money on the inquiry, claiming the allegations are ‘fantasy’. Others said it would have been impossible for Sir Edward to commit such crimes when for much of his career he was accompanied by police protection. Only last week, former Director of Public Prosecutions Lord Macdonald said Mr Veale’s investigation was a ‘tragi-comedy of incompetence’.

But Mr Veale received a major boost yesterday as two fellow senior police chiefs, who are thought to have been briefed on progress by Operation Conifer, fired a warning shot at his powerful detractors.

Norfolk Chief Constable Simon Bailey, who supervises all UK historic child sex investigations, and Durham Chief Constable Mike Barton, who supervises national police operations, cautioned against attempts to ‘undermine’ Mr Veale.

In a statement to the MoS they stressed police must be able to investigate ‘without fear or favour’, adding: ‘They should be able to carry out investigations with complete independence without commentary which threatens to undermine the process.

‘While we await the findings of the Sir Edward Heath inquiry, it would be wrong to speculate on its content or the actions of individuals who have conducted the investigation.’

It was vital that police were given the funds ‘to conduct what can be complex and time-consuming inquiries’, they added.

The Mail on Sunday can also disclose that earlier this year a review of Mr Veale’s inquiry was undertaken by HM Inspectorate of Constabulary, which ruled it was ‘reasonable and proportionate’.

In another apparent vote of confidence in Mr Veale, Home Secretary Amber Rudd last week signed off a £1.1 million payment to help fund the investigation into Sir Edward – a blow to Tory MPs who wanted her to refuse to pay. Significantly, she signed off the payment shortly after receiving a summary of Mr Veale’s findings.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse also said it would study Mr Veale’s findings after being briefed on his report.

Mr Veale’s view that allegations against Sir Edward would be serious enough to justify interrogation under caution were he alive is likely to spark a major row and calls for him to resign by some Tories convinced Sir Edward is innocent. A similar investigation into claims of a Westminster child sex ring involving 1980s Home Secretary Leon Brittan and others, by the Metropolitan Police – Operation Midland – collapsed last year after it was revealed the key claims were made by a fantasist. But there have also been allegations of an Establishment cover-up.

Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen, who has staunchly defended ‘courageous and honest’ Mr Veale, said: ‘Having set up the inquiry it would have been appalling if the Government had refused to pay for it.

‘Mr Veale must be allowed to present his findings free of abuse or intimidation, and that includes my fellow Conservative MPs. Just because Operation Midland was a failure does not mean Operation Conifer should be ignored.

‘There are powerful forces in the Establishment that always want to cover things up.’

This newspaper revealed in February that Mr Veale believed some of the claims concerning Sir Edward were ‘120 per cent’ genuine.

Is it the job of ‘hired expert’ Rachel Hoskins to slag off those who hire him? Isn’t it his duty to report to the Police and then shut up?

No, Rachel Hoskins, Leon Brittan wasn’t cleared of allegations against children before he went to his shallow grave.

His crimes were swept under the carpet just like you’re being instrumentalised to sweep Heath’s crimes away.

Have you seen the contents of the secret csa file marked for destruction released the day after Leon Brittan died ?

The file that names Leon Brittan, Peter Morrison & William Van Straubenzee (a Heath Minister btw) ?

Leon Brittan among senior Westminster figures named in new child abuse files

Peter Morrison, Peter Hayman and William van Straubenzee also named in previously unreleased documents, which police will pass to ongoing inquiry


A SECRET document relating to Westminster child abuse allegations and marked for destruction surfaced the day after Sir Leon Brittan died, …

Some confusion about the word credible & shreddable evidence! me thinks

Hoskins discrediting  the Heath investigation Conifer, despite Mike Veale saying previously:

Dec 2016

Mike Veale:

Fact: The recent media coverage regarding a confidential report that had been commissioned by Wiltshire Police as part of the investigation, through a recognised National Crime Agency registered expert, referred to satanic ritual sex abuse.

This part of the investigation is only one small element of the overall inquiry and DOES NOT RELATE TO SIR EDWARD HEATH

So. What punishment will be meted out to Richard-Rachel Hoskins?

R R Hoskins /Daily Mail

Telegraph and Mail tried to rubbish Ted Heath inquiry by citing criminologist Rachel Hoskins.

Crime fiction writer Rachel Hoskins:

Sir Edward Heath accuser is a ‘satanic sex fantasist’:

Police warned by OWN expert that ritual abuse claims are false – including how the former PM ‘went to candlelit forest for paedophile parties’ 

Dr Hoskins has been analysing witness statements submitted to Operation Conifer related to Ted Heath, since September.

Dr Hoskins said: ‘The Heath inquiry rests, like the Westminster VIP inquiry, on over-active imagination.’

Wiltshire Police insisted evidence examined by Dr Hoskins was just a small part of their inquiry, known as Operation Conifer, but she says it is a central plank of the investigation.

Although I often work with the police as an expert – I am registered with the National Crime Agency – my specialist subject is religious ritual. You might know of my work identifying Adam, the African boy whose torso was found in the river Thames in 2001.

So is Daily Mail’s “120%” an attempt to create an Exaroesque “credible & true” stick with which to beat investigation with later?

And so it begins…..

Heath paedophile investigation plunged into further chaos as detective in charge goes off with stress

Superintendent Sean Memory went on long term sick leave last month, just weeks after being put in overall charge of Operation Conifer – the £800,000 probe into allegations that the late former Prime Minister was a paedophile.

Sources said Mr Memory’s decision to take time off with stress was the result of “combination of factors” but said it had followed a period of intense pressure.

The Telegraph has also discovered that Mr Memory is facing a disciplinary investigation, although it is understood it is connected with his work on Operation Conifer.

The spokesman said: “It is very important that we stress there is no risk to Operation Conifer due to this set of circumstances. To ensure continuity in this complex investigation, it continues to be overseen by Assistant Chief Constable Paul Mills and has been, and will continue to be, subject to regular scrutiny through a Gold Group meeting structure which reviews actions and activity.

“The Force has every confidence in how the investigation has been conducted to date. Supt Steve Kirby (an experienced investigator who has worked on this case from the outset) has been appointed as SIO for Operation Conifer.

Top Tory (Rifkind) slaps down police chief claims that Edward Heath was a Paedophile

Has Rifkind (Leon Brittan’s relation) read Wilts police statement?


Sir Edward Heath WAS a paedophile, says police chief: Astonishing claim is made that the former PM is guilty of vile crimes ‘covered up by the Establishment’

  • More than 30 people have come forward with claims about the former PM 
  • And they are said to have given ‘strikingly similar’ accounts to Wiltshire Police 
  • The county’s chief constable has said that the allegations are ‘totally convincing’
  • Pictures have emerged of Heath driving – despite it being claimed he didn’t have a car 

The police chief investigating claims that Sir Edward Heath was a paedophile is convinced the allegations are ‘120 per cent’ genuine, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

More than 30 people have come forward with claims of sexual abuse by the former Conservative Prime Minister, according to well-placed sources.

And they are said to have given ‘strikingly similar’ accounts of incidents to Wiltshire Police – even though the individuals are not known to each other.

The Mail on Sunday has been told that Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale regards the allegations as ‘totally convincing’, and plans to publish a report in June.

Detectives have established that, contrary to claims that Sir Edward could not have committed the crimes as he ‘never drove a car’ and ‘always’ had a police driver with him, he did drive – and did have a car.

They have photographic evidence that shows he is a driver, and have established that he had a driving licence. He also bought a Rover 2000 after being deposed as Tory leader by Margaret Thatcher in 1975, when he was 58.

Astonishingly, Mr Veale is also understood to support claims that Sir Edward’s alleged crimes were reported to police years ago but covered up by the Establishment.

Some of those who said Sir Edward abused them are believed to have told police they went on to commit sexual abuse crimes themselves as a result.

The investigation into Sir Edward, called Operation Conifer, was set up in 2015 in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

Mr Veale came under pressure to abandon the inquiry last year after separate claims of a paedophile ring at Westminster involving former Home Secretary, the late Lord Brittan, and former Defence chief, Lord Bramall, were found to be groundless.

Allegations that Sir Edward was involved in satanic orgies have been dismissed as fantasy by an expert asked to review the case.

However, The Mail on Sunday has been told that Mr Veale believes the paedophile allegations are genuine. A source said: ‘Mr Veale believes in them 120 per cent and thinks they are totally convincing.

‘There are very close similarities in the accounts given by those who have come forward. The same names used for him, the same places and same type of incidents keep coming up.

‘What stands out is that the people giving these accounts are not connected but the stories and the details dovetail.

‘It contains disturbing stuff. Investigators have been shocked by what they have learned.’

Another source said: ‘The police were initially skeptical about the allegations, but now believe them. And they have come round to the view that they were covered up in the past because of who Heath was.

‘They will not be deflected by the rich and powerful trying to do the same now. Mike Veale is doing a great job and should be congratulated for his courage.’

The disclosures come after several senior politicians dismissed the allegations against Heath as absurd and unfounded. Former Tory Foreign Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind complained Heath’s reputation was being ‘besmirched’. Heath’s sexuality has been the source of much speculation over the years. Some believed he was gay, others said he was ‘asexual.’ At one point, he was being investigated by no fewer than five police forces – the Met, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Kent and Jersey.

The claims, some of which have been proved false, include alleged links to a convicted brothel keeper known as Madame Ling-Ling. A paedophile dossier compiled by Labour peer Baroness Castle said he offered young boys trips on his yacht, and in a separate incident one man claimed Sir Edward picked him up hitchhiking in Kent as a 12-year-old in the 1960s and lured him to his Mayfair flat.

Labour MP Tom Watson also said he had received allegations about Sir Edward. However the claims Mr Veale is investigating, which date from the 1960s to 1990s, are not linked to the discredited evidence of the man known as ‘Nick’, who alleged a high-level paedophile ring.

One of the key counter-claims made when the allegations first surfaced came from former Cabinet Secretary Lord Armstrong, who worked with Heath when he was Prime Minister. He said Heath ‘never drove a car’ and always had at least one policeman with him from 1970 until his death in 2005.


The fact that Sir Edward could drive was confirmed last night by a friend, who said the former Prime Minister bought a car in 1975, although Sir Edward was later given a chauffeur-driven car and police guard after IRA death threats.

Asked if Mr Veale believed the allegations against Sir Edward were ‘totally convincing’, a police spokesman said the Chief Constable was determined to ‘ensure the investigation is proportionate, measured and legal’ and that the job of the police was to ‘impartially investigate allegations without fear or favour and go where the evidence takes us. It is not the role of the police to judge the guilt or innocence of people in our criminal justice system.’

Further asked if Mr Veale had ‘120 per cent’ faith in the allegations, the spokesman declined to comment.

Sir Edward Heath seen with his car in Weymouth, despite claims he never drove

These are the photographs that appear to disprove the notion that the allegations against Sir Edward cannot be true because he ‘never drove a car’ and was always accompanied by police.

Both were taken in October 1975. In the main picture on the right, Heath is standing by the driver’s door of the Rover 2000 he bought after Margaret Thatcher ousted him as Tory leader in February that year. In the picture on the left, he is seen arriving at the Tory Party conference in Blackpool – in the driver’s seat.

The Mail on Sunday has learned that Wiltshire Police has also obtained photographic evidence of him driving.

‘When he was at home he had two policemen on the gate, he had the personal protection officer from Scotland Yard in the house, he never drove a car himself, he always had an official driver,’ said Lord Armstrong. ‘It seems highly unlikely he could have escaped all that to do the kind of thing that is described.’

Sir Edward bought the Rover after losing the chauffeur-driven car he was entitled to as Prime Minister, then Opposition leader.

A confidant of the former PM said: ‘He definitely could and did drive, though was a notoriously bad one. When he went to music concerts in Salzburg and hired a car, he was meant to drive it because his British police guards weren’t officially allowed to.

‘But they insisted as they were frightened he was going to crash.’

You couldn’t make it up: his closest aides were adamant that the bloke with an MG, a Rover and a Vauxhall neither owned a car nor drove!


Mandarin who can’t help being economical with truth: Lord Armstrong at centre of accusations of child abuse cover-up

  • Senior civil servant in Thatcher government accused of ‘shocking’ attitude
  • Ex-Cabinet Secretary Lord Armstrong defended apparent abuse cover-up
  • Was warned by security services in 1986 that MP had ‘a penchant for boys’
  • Said he believed decision not to investigate claims was ‘correct at the tim

It has been revealed that he was urged by MI5 to help hush-up abuse allegations against a senior MP so as to avoid political embarrassment for the Thatcher government.

A document from November 1986 shows that Sir Antony Duff, then director-general of MI5, wrote to Armstrong about inquiries into one MP said to have ‘a penchant for small boys’.

Even today, despite years of official investigations into the claims and a top-level review into the loss of hundreds of Home Office files relating to the original allegations, Armstrong defiantly refuses to identify the suspect politician or even say if he is alive or dead. Can he really still believe that it is acceptable to be ‘economical with the truth’?

His attitude reflects an arrogant mindset that has for too long prevailed in Westminster and Whitehall.

The newly-unearthed files expose how protection of the Establishment took priority over the need to prosecute anyone suspected of paedophilia and over the safety of vulnerable young children.

In a letter to Armstrong about the suspected MP, Sir Antony warned that secrecy must prevail. ‘At the present stage…the risks of political embarrassment to the Government is rather greater than the security danger,’ he wrote.

In other words, if the rumours of a sex-ring were true and children had been abused, the welfare of the child must be subjugated to the national interest.

At the time, in 1986, there was little public discussion about the rumours. Whistleblowers were silenced, files mysteriously vanished and evidence which might have nailed the culprits was ignored.

New BBC paedophile scandal as ‘hero’ ex-chauffeur is unmasked as convicted child rapist

Niven James Sinclair was so influential he sat in on BBC meetings – but Dame Janet Smith’s abuse probe in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal failed to identify him

A pervert with three child sex convictions worked as a BBC chauffeur for almost 30 years.

Niven James Sinclair drove VIPs ­including former Prime Minister Ted Heath and was employed to run BBC transport as a third party contractor. His firm supplied up to 150 cars.

He was so influential he sat in on BBC meetings and was involved with shows including Newsnight and Panorama.

And astonishingly, Dame Janet Smith’s probe into paedophiles at the BBC in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal failed to identify him.

Sinclair only stopped working for the broadcaster in 2005, aged 82, when his firm was still supplying 92 vehicles.

Ted Heath’s alleged paedophile aide:

Heath aide suicide over paedo arrest

 Secretary shot himself

15th August 2015

SIR Edward Heath’s ex-aide killed himself after being arrested by cops investigating child abuse claims.

Nick Edgar, 40, put a shotgun to his head two days after questioning over images on his computer.

The father of three worked as ex-PM Sir Edward’s secretary in the Nineties. He was held by child abuse investigation police in April, 2010.

Edgar was quizzed again four months later but then shot himself near his parents’ Cambridgeshire estate.

The former Oxford University Union president got the job with Sir Edward in 1992 and worked for him until late in the decade, spending months at the politician’s Wiltshire home.

From Heath’s 1998 autobiography –

Ted Heath was especially grateful to alleged paedophile Nicholas Edgar…and some other familiar names…Sara Morrison, Soames, Fellowes…




In June 1995 Heath’s private office, headed at that time by Nicholas Edgar, was set the task of organising three days of lavish celebrations for our visitors at the most prestigious London venues.


Heath’s Chief Whip: My Job Was to Cover-up Scandals Involving Small Boys

Jan 1984 R v O’Dowd: Boy George’s uncle alleges photos of Heath with children exist & Cecil Parkinson attends the court case

From Sept 2014 Two ‘interesting’ allegations – Edward Heath: The Paedophile Prime Minister.

“the producer told me that years before when he was an assistant editor in a cutting room in Wardour Street he used to get his holiday photos developed at a shop in Wardour Street and one day the shop was raided by the police because the owner was dealing in pornography or at least that was the presumed reason. During the raid, a distribution list was discovered which had Ted Heath’s name on it also Patrick Moore’s and it was for “kiddie porn” as it was termed in those days. I do not know how he got this information about the list but apparently “everyone in Wardour Street” knew about it.”
It reminded me of a very strange court case involving Boy George’s uncle (you really couldn’t make some of this stuff up) Kenneth O’Dowd in 1984 who alleged that he had compromising photographs of Edward Heath . The news reports do not describe what the photographs that included Ted Heath depicted however he says that his former mistress “appeared in pornographic photographs together with his two children”
According to The Glasgow Herald, O’Dowd produced a photocopied photograph of Edward Heath but it was “dismissed in court as a forgery”.
If you thought that was all very curious then I’m sure you’ll be intrigued about why Cecil Parkinson should take enough interest in this case to attend and observe part of the trial himself, as was John Stapleton and Nick Owen were…Intrigued
Below are two stories about the trial from The Times.
January 19th 1984
A woman denied at the Central Criminal Court yesterday that she had appeared in pornographic photographs with Mr Edward Heath, the former Prime Minister. The woman, a mother of three children, whose former boy friend has pleaded not guilty to raping and assaulting her, said she had never met Mr Heath, or been photographed in indecent positions with men or children. The man has asserted that the charges against him have been fabricated by the woman and the police. “He says they wish to muzzle his evidence to bring to book certain persons, including the woman, who he says appeared in pornographic photographs together with his two children”, the court has been told by Mr Stephen Mitchell, for the prosecution. The defendant had claimed he found photographs showing a man he recognized as Edward Heath and another man he has named as a Det Sgt Wallace. Mr Heath has denied being in the alleged photographs. The woman said in evidence yesterday that, although the defendant had taken some pictures of her undressed, they were of her alone. She said she had never been photographed with det Sgt Wallace or had sexual intercourse with him. Cross-examined by the defendant, she denied ever seeing a briefcase in her home with the initials “E.A.H.” on it. She also denied his allegation that she had been part of a prostitution ring. The trial was adjourned until today.

January 18th 1984

An accused man’s claim that he was framed by the authorities because he had discovered pornographic photographs of his lover, naked, In poses with Mr Edward Heath, the former Prime Minister, and a detective sergeant, were “wild and totally unfounded” the prosecution maintained at the Central Criminal Court yesterday. Mr Stephen Mlitchell, for the Crown, told a jury of seven women and five men that the allegations of the existence of such photographs had been made last October at the man’s first trial which was halted after three weeks and a new trial ordered. The defendant, aged 37, has pleaded not guilty to charges of raping and assaulting his former mistress, aged 32, a mother of three daughters. The defendant claimed he had discovered five colour photographs in the jewel box of the woman with whom he lived at their flat in 1976, while they were living at Woolwich, south east London. Their young daughters were looking on allegedly as the woman posed on her bed. Mr Heath was said to have been in two of the photographs, and the detective Sergeant, Brian Wallace, in three of them. But, Mr Mitchell said, no such photographs existed,although the jury would probably spent a great deal of time listening to comments about them. The defendant also claimed that he had found a black briefcase, bearing an MP’s initials, in a cupboard at his former lover’s flat. Some photographs did exist, Mr Mitchell said. The woman remembered that she had once posed nude and semi-nude. But the existence of “the odd dirty photo” whould not have any great influence on the case, he said. The man was accused of threatening his former lover with a knife and a hammer after breaking into her home in September 1982, and raping and assaulting her. He was als

An open letter to David Cameron by Peter McKelvie

Dear Mr. Cameron

On the very day, 24th October 2012, that Tom Watson asked you a PMQ re. the possibility of a link between a very large and highly organised paedophile ring and No 10, you made a number of quotes to the mainstream media.

You were in fact referring to the Savile/BBC/NHS scandal.

I made a note of some of those quotes :-

”The Government will do all it can do, other institutions must do what they can do, to make sure that we learn the lesson of this and it can NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN”

“Collusion should NEVER happen again ”

”The measure of how our society is, is how we treat its most vulnerable members”

There are no more vulnerable members of our society than children who have been taken in to care and then re-abused by the very people charged with the responsibility of caring for them and protecting them,and even worse then passing them on to be further abused by the very people who make the laws in this country and are expected to lead the way on the moral compass of that society.

I have no doubt that you have watched or been made aware of Channel 4′s Dispatches on 12th September and the allegations that arose from it regarding the role of senior politicians, the security services and the Crown Prosecution Service in covering up the horrendous abuse carried out by Cyril Smith over 5 decades.The overlap with Savile in terms of who knew about this abuse were laid bare.

I also have no doubt that you are aware that your colleagues in your party, Edwina Currie, Gyles Brandreth and Rod Richards have made very damning statements of how well known in Westminster circles it was that Peter Morrison was a dangerous paedophile, and yet his career was unaffected as he rose to be Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party, Mrs. Thatcher’s PPS in 1990 and her campaign manager that same year despite this knowledge having been around for many years.

I also have no doubt that you are aware of the statement of Tim Fortescue,Edward Heath’s Chief Whip from 1970-73, made public on Michael Cockerell’s BBC Documentary in 1995 called “Westminster’s Secret Service “.
Talking about the role of the chief whip, Fortescue said ” For anyone with any sense who was in trouble would come to the whips and tell them the truth ………….. it might be erm erm a scandal involving small boys ……….. we would do everything we can because we would store up brownie points ……. and if I mean, that sounds a pretty,pretty nasty reason, but it’s one of the reasons because if we could get a chap out of trouble then,he will do as we ask forever more.”

I don’t need to tell you of the revulsion I feel towards our political masters having worked with sexually abused children for over 30 years when I heard of how the Whips ran the Dirt Book system.

Your colleague, John Whittingdale, in his role as Chair of the Culture Committee, put himself forward as the moral voice of Parliament in the days following the exposure of Savile on national TV.
He lost no opportunity to appear on every news channel for many days to demand in effect the head of the Director General of the BBC. To date I have not heard you or Mr. Whittingdale demand such investigations in to your own institution despite the mountain of concern a small proportion of which I have referred to above.
Just on Savile alone without looking any further why was there no investigation along the lines of the many BBC inquiries in to why a British Prime Minister was so close to Savile that he allegedly attended 13 consecutive New Year’s Eve parties at Chequers and why the same Prime Minister allegedly persevered for many years in insisting that such an evil man long identified as having a deviant sexual history should get a knighthood,ignoring the advice of her closest advisers.
Why was the same man so welcome in Prince Charles’s properties despite the security services and similar vetting institutions having enough opportunity to tap in to the ” gossip” about Savile that was around for decades.

I would dearly like to go in to more detail but until the Metropolitan Police’s Operations Fernbridge and Fairbank are completed then for obvious reasons I can not.

In the aftermath of the Lord McAlpine affair I was extremely disappointed by the confusion you attempted to create by making accusations of gay witch-hunts. There is no connection whatsoever between being gay and being a paedophile.
This is about and only about people who abuse young children regardless of whether the abuser is heterosexual or gay.
There is no witch-hunt against gay people and it was most irresponsible for a Prime Minister to make such a statement when the abuse of our most vulnerable was the issue.

Now is the time for you to show the genuine commitment expected of a Prime Minister and do what you preached in those statements last October especially ” COLLUSION SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN ” and the demand that ALL institutions look inwards and examine their role in past collusion/cover up.

A starting point, and to give Parliament and Government any credibility in this heinous historical scandal, is for you to put all party political considerations aside and arrange an urgent meeting with Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband to draw up a blueprint as to how your own institution will be investigated along the lines of the way you and colleagues demanded that people be brought to account in the BBC or NHS for their failure to blow the whistle on Savile.

It would be better if you led such an exercise before it is forced upon you by public demand.
The latter will happen in time.

A starting point would be an immediate statement that there will be urgent cross-party talks to set up an independant body to examine who ordered these cover ups of people like Smith and Morrison, after ordering an immediate Police investigation by the National Crime Agency and ensuring that the latter body has sufficient resources to go wherever the evidence takes them and however long it takes. This must include the investigation of living politicians, police officers,civil servants,security services personnel etc.

Paedophile warning by social services chief ‘ignored’

  • 12 July 2014

Mr Tombs says he was told he was wasting his time when he alerted civil servants to the claims

David Tombs, who ran Hereford and Worcester social services, said he warned the government after the arrest of paedophile Peter Righton in 1992

Mr Tombs, who in charge of social services in his area for 20 years, claims that when Righton was arrested in 1992, he became aware of information through the police investigation that suggested a paedophilic network was operating.

He said what he learned would have been of “national concern” and told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “It was coming across to me at the time that there were names there that were linked into the establishment, if you like.

Two inquiries have been launched into historical claims of child abuse.

Tim Yeo MP, a junior health minister in the early 1990s, said he was “staggered” by the claims.

He added that he was “not aware” of a culture of child sex abuse during his time as a health minister, and said he was puzzled as to why Mr Tombs did not take his concerns further at the time and speak to his local MP.

‘No abuse culture’Asked what he thought was meant by the word “them”, Mr Tombs said “those within Parliament and government in Whitehall”.

But Mr Yeo said he found Mr Tombs’ claims “incredible”.

He told the Today programme: “I think it’s incredible, the idea that any remotely credible evidence had been shown to a civil servant at the Department of Health would have been ignored and received the comment that it apparently was.

“There was no culture of child sex abuse that I was aware of either in Whitehall or in Parliament,” he added. “The whole thing is extraordinary.”

Let’s not forget that Tim Yeo chipped in to help his friend and paedophile Proctor with at least £5000

“There was no culture of child sex abuse that I was aware of either in Whitehall or in Parliament,” he added. “The whole thing is extraordinary.

The judge said in the witness box, Mr Yeo had made deliberate use of a “hot-tempered counter-attack as a diversionary tactic”.

And he said he found some of Mr Yeo’s evidence “utterly implausible” and, overall, he did not present it “convincingly”.

Peter McKelvie was right about Righton, Alston, Napier, Tracey, Sadler, Waters, Fraser and dozens more. I’ll let you work out the rest!

Peter McKelvie even contacted Virginia Bottomley but she did nowt! Now where was her hubby listed again?


More evidence that the Department of Health were told of Peter Righton paedophile network…and did nothing

In 1993, Hereford & Worcester social services department produced a report about paedophile ‘child care expert’ Peter Righton and his connections with other child sex abusers who were working in schools and children’s homes across the UK.

The report (dated 13.05.93) was sent to Virginia Bottomley’s Department of Health via Sir William Utting. It clearly stated that the abuse networks were still active and that children in care were at risk, yet the Department of Health – who have overall responsibility for children in care – did nothing to stop the abuse from continuing.

This ‘man called Peter McKelvie’ was hugely successful in bringing paedos to book. No wonder DM never liked him!:

Why does hate McKelvie? Is it because he was so successful in getting Charles Napier convicted?

Have you ever wondered why these people did their utmost to mute Peter McKelvie?

Oh FFS so Daily Mail went all out to get Peter McKelvie off the inquiry panel & ensure Peter Righton & PIE’s political network ignored?

Excellent work, Cathy! The way Britain’s paedo Establishment has treated McKelvie is utterly disgusting.

Pl read & RT! Excellent article on Peter McKelvie & the shambolic article of falsehoods in Daily Fail & their lame (non)apology.

Heroes for Exposing Child Sexual Abuse – Part 1 – Peter McKelvie


Peter McKelvie worked as a Senior Child Protection manager for Hereford and Worcester.

As part of that work he was given access by West Mercia Police to Peter Righton’s Diary.

In his diary Peter Righton had listed the names and ages of each boy he had abused from 1957 onwards in categories of which institution the victims had been resident at the time, and most sickeningly of all, had scored each child’s level of abuse from 1 (touching) to 10 (buggery).

Peter McKelvie explains more here [6]

“One of the many reasons I contacted Tom Watson MP in October 2012 was my anger and frustration that Peter Righton had been allowed to die with just one minor conviction for possession of indecent images of children when I knew how evil a web he had spun in full sight of leading social work agencies such as the National Children’s Bureau and the National Institute of Social Work not to mention the high regard he was obviously held in at the Department of Health.

Much has been made of Savile being given the keys to Broadmoor.

Righton didn’t need the keys, he could walk in to any children’s home or local authority boarding school in the UK on ” official business ”

I was given full access by West Mercia police to Righton’s diaries and letters which gave the clues to a large network of Paedophiles with “official ” access to children.

Unfortunately my team weren’t allowed to pursue these leads ourselves as the alleged offences occurred outside our statutory geographical boundaries

We had to pass all our relevant information on to other local authorities.

With the full support of my then Director of Social  Services, David Tombs, I wrote a report for the Department of Health pleading for them to agree to fund and set up a “National Joint Social Worker/Police investigation team” so that we could pursue all the leads we had and go anywhere the evidence took us.

Righton in his diaries had made the task of investigation relatively straightforward.

He had listed the names and ages of each boy he had abused from 1957 onwards in categories of which institution the victims had been resident at the time,and most sickeningly of all, had scored each child’s level of abuse from 1 (touching) to 10 (buggery)

My Director was prepared to release me and 2 of my social workers to be part of such a team if we were seen as suitable applicants. Nothing came of this request and this huge body of evidence against Righton fell in to a black hole. A small group of us, a very senior Police  Officer, two very experienced investigative journalists and myself met with a senior Opposition Party MP in 1994 to lodge a complaint and demand action.

We named MP’s that we believed might be involved in this organised network. Nothing came of that either.

My Director David Tombs retired in 1994 and my team was closed down and disbanded virtually immediately afterwards.” [6]

Peter McKelvies team was closed down.

This was a Hereford and Worcestershire document from 1993 which Peter McKelvie authored. It mentions

  • Righton’s PIE links
  • Links to the Swedish and Norwegian “PIE’s”
  • Organised abuse in Gozo, Malta with Righton and another man involved in “trade” in victims
  • Likely paedophiles as a bishop, social services and education staff and civil servants
  • Individuals in possible major institutional abuse
  • Ability to prove that Righton abused many boys in a school 30 years ago (probably Redhill School)
  • Righton’s connections to “rentboy” scene in London
  • Righton abuse of boys, either in care or known to social services, all over the country
  • Several boxfuls of letters and his diaries

In another document entitled “A Personal Viewpoint” Peter McKelvie suggests

  • Coordinated network of professionals involved in abuse of children
  • Access to children was easy via various official schemes
  • Children were being trafficked around the country
  • Small joint task force of 4 experienced social workers and 4 police be set up
  • Task force should investigate PIE and abuse in social work

Peter Righton, a serial child abuser, got away with it all the way until his death in 2007, even though there was evidence written in his own hand in diaries and letters.

He was Director of the National Institute of Social Work Directors and despite his host of contacts all over Britain, and uninhibited access to children through the Social Services, Righton was never tried for serious sexual assaults or rape.

All he ever got was a fine of £900 when he was caught importing child abuse images in 1992, and separately a caution for indecent assault, probably in 1994/5 [15]

How did Righton get away with it?

“..Peter Righton was questioned about indecent assaults on children by the Obscene Publications Squad in November 1994 – several months after the Hereford & Worcester investigation had been shut down, and after the BBC documentary Secret Life of a Paedophile had been broadcast [June 1]”[9]

Righton’s contacts were numerous, some are outlined here Goodness and Harmony Diplomatic Connections and PIE / Diplomat Robert Alston – brother of Richard Alston [26]

Also many are here[28] 

Nearly all of those connected to him got away with it as well. Most appear never to have even been charged.  Those that did get charged got lightly dealt with.

Richard Alston got away with it – at present I cannot find any conviction from 1992-95 for Richard Alston who was Peter Rightons long term partner, and Headmaster of New Barns School for special needs pupils in Toddington, Gloucestershire.

Charles Napier got away lightly. Although he had a conviction from back in April 1972 for indecency with schoolboys in his charge [15] it appears that no effort was made to look for further abuse since. Napier was charged with just two counts of indecent assault and received a 9 month sentence. This was possibly for the abuse mentioned in the letter found at Bloomfield’s House. Charles Scott Napier 1995 Dec 8 Court of Appeal [18]. Charles Napier is the half brother to Conservative MP and recent minister John Whittingdale.

Morris Fraser was connected to Righton, but in his own right was connected to many others,and a prolific child abuser wherever he went.  Bits of Books Blog has a good timeline Dr Morris Fraser, Belfast, Long Island New York, Islington [27]

A proper investigation of Fraser by the Obscene Publications Squad would have investigated the Azimuth Trust. It had featured in the television programme about Righton – Secret Life of a Paedophile [9]. Fraser had been accused of child sexual abuse in the Report of the Azimuth Trust Cornwall Council Publish 1994 Azimuth Trust Report [19]

The Paedophile Information Exchange, PIE was probably the most notorious child abuse organisation ever. Peter Righton was one of the founder members. There was documentary evidence of his host of connections to many members. Nothing was done.

Abroad Righton also had connections in Norway, Sweden, Malta and the Netherlands

Whoever is responsible for shutting down the investigation into Righton, and his connections is culpable for all the abuse carried out by Righton, Napier, Alston and others since 1994. Many serial child abusers were allowed to spend most of their lives abusing children.

The fact that the investigation did not far was not due to lack of evidence, it did not get far for other reasons. What were they?

Who was responsible?

Michael Hames was Head of the Obscene Publications Squad from 1990 until his retirement in Sept 1993, [p297] Wikipedia states 1994 [8]

Let us look at what Hames says of the investigation in his book. 2001 Michael Hames The Dirty Squad  is available here [15]

Hames on the Peter Righton Investigation

[All information and pages numbers in this section is from Hames book unless stated [15]]

Hames’s section on Peter Righton starts on page 208. He says he heard of the Righton case in September 1992 with a phone call from a detective in Evesham, West Mercia. They had been on a raid with customs, and found disturbing things at the house of Peter Righton.

Hames rang Valerie Howarth from Childline to find out who Peter Righton was, found he was a “big fish”. That day he sent 2 officers to help search Righton’s house in Evesham under a search warrant and seized a large amount of material.

They wanted to continue the inquiry continued at Righton’s partner, Richard Alston’s school in Gloucestershire, where he was Headmaster and Righton a governor, but Hames says that was not met with enthusiasm.

Hames spoke to Herbert Laming, Chief Inspector of Social Services Inspectorate, who told him that government ministers and himself were keen to get to the truth and that a comprehensive inquiry be established. This was begun by joint Police and Social services team in Hereford and Worcester.

It was found that Righton was a member of PIE and contributed a chapter of Perspectives on Paedophilia in 1981. He was charged with possession of indecent photographs, pleaded guilty and fined. Hames says that was the extent of action that could be taken against him under the law. This is correct for the images at the time, but not for his other offences.

They found Righton had written to Dept of Education to remove Charles Napier from List 99, of banned teachers. Napier had been convicted on indecency in 1972 with schoolboys in his charge.

Investigation was made into Alston’s school in West Country.  According to Hames [15] Operation Clarence was set up by him with the officers responsible Graham Passingham and Dave Flanagan, targeting schoolmasters and people involved in Education in particular, which soon traced links between Righton and other offenders.

According to Bob Long and Bob McLachlans book  [p178 [31]] Operation Clarence started to investigate a paedophile network consisting mainly of public school teachers, doctors, clergy men, and others involved in social work [31]. No mention is made of Peter Righton.

David Bloomfield (I think wrongly spelled Blomfield in Hames’s book) Chief Executive of charity Standing Conference on Schools Science and Technology was a target, where they found child abuse images in his flat and a letter from Napier [15]

Napier was employed as teacher in Cairo and the letter boasted of abuse against boys there.

Hames says the inquiry finished in 1994, and the results were disappointing despite building up a huge database.

  • Napier having previously been suspended by the British Council was suspended, and when he returned to UK was arrested, charged with indecent assault and given 18 months. [The court appeal [18] clearly states that the two 9 months sentences, one for each count of indecent assault were concurrent not consecutive ie a total of 9 months, not added together, so Hames appears to have got this wrong]
  • Blomfield [correct probably Bloomfield] was fined for possession of what was called then “child pornography” and sacked from his job. He went to Portugal.
  • Righton was cautioned for an offence of indecent assault that had taken place 30 years previously.
  • The Home Office left the recommendation from the joint investigation that a National inquiry be set up on file. [NB further research check Home Office and who might have been there in 1994]

[Would be useful if someone with the book could upload relevant pages]

Christopher Harry Ashby, UK, a primary school teacher from Kent was arrested and found guilty as well Philip Taylor [32]

This leaves many questions about the Police investigation both with Hames in charge and after he had left.

Was the investigation carried out properly when Hames was Head of the unit? Even he says he was disappointed with the outcome.

  • Was a caution really the best that could be achieved with the wealth of evidence that we now know he had in Righton’s diary? Strangely Hames did not mention such a goldmine find in his book.
  • When did the unit under Hames interview Righton, if at all?
  • Why did they not follow up Righton’s serious offences?
  • Why was no action taken against Richard Alston? Was that Hames’s decision?
  • Was this really the best the investigation into all the other contacts of Righton?
  • Why were no PIE contacts arrested and charged?
  • Was there any interference from Government departments?

Hames had a heart attack and DCI Jim Reynolds came into the squad from Stolen Motor Vehicle Squad and then took over when Hames retired [p45 [31]]. It is uncertain when Hames was off with a heart attack, or when Reynolds actually took over, and who was acting head in the meantime.

  • Why did the Unit interview Righton in Nov 1994? It was over 6 months after the TV programme.
  • Was it this Nov 1994 interview that ended in a caution?
  • Why did they not follow up Righton’s serious offences?
  • Why did they not follow up PIE connections?
  • Why did they not follow up abuse abroad?
  • Was there any outside interference from any Government departments?
  • Why was the investigation shut down?
  • Who shut it down?

It appears that Hames and Reynolds have questions to be asked about their time in charge and the lack of results on the child sexual abuse of Righton, Alston, PIE and more.

Righton moved to Suffolk, with Richard Alston to the Thornham Magna Estate near Eye, owned by Lord Henniker.

[As an aside, another child abuser Norman Walker [35] owned the Diana Quenton School, Park House, Palgrave, Suffolk, and had connections in Eye. If anyone knows  of any connections of Walker in the area I would be grateful and particularly grateful if anyone has any documents or paper from the School. Could you check them for a watermark and contact me if there is one.]

Child Sexual Abuse in 2012

Let me jump forward in time 18 years to October 2012. All this time during which children were being abused by Righton, Alston and Napier and others in PIE.

Most people in 2012 did not know that child sexual abuse was widespread and affected millions of people. That milestone had not been reached, that Rubicon had yet to be crossed.

Details about Jimmy Savile’s child abuse and the cover up of it by the BBC was just starting to come out. On 19 October 2012 the Metropolitan Police Service launched a formal criminal investigation, Operation Yewtree, into historic allegations of child sexual abuse by Savile and other people

In Oct 2012 Peter McKelvie had approached Tom Watson and briefed him on the Peter Righton case that had got virtually nowhere in 1992

On 24th October 2012 Tom asked a question, recorded in Hansard [13]

Tim Yeo is paid £40,000 by a Dubai educational group. As the MP for South Suffolk, he earns another £65,750.

It’s no wonder Yeo can afford a large house in his constituency and a London flat with panoramic views of the Thames.

Yeo, 68, went to Charterhouse and Cambridge, marrying Diane Pickard, who worked in children’s music at the BBC, in 1970. They had two children. Their son Jonathan is a painter whose subjects have included Nicole Kidman, Tony Blair and David Cameron.

In 1983 he was elected as the MP for South Suffolk, but it wasn’t until 1990 that Yeo, on the dripping-wet side of the Tory Party, became a minister. An undistinguished environment minister, he made headlines for all the wrong reasons.

As a new MP, Yeo campaigned to end discrimination against illegitimate children. He should have declared an interest. At Christmas 1993, it emerged he had fathered two children  out of wedlock.

He had a six-month-old child, Claudia Marie, with his mistress Julia Stent, a Tory councillor in East London. He had also fathered a child, who was put up for adoption, during a student relationship at Cambridge.

Yeo was forced to resign. His wife stayed with him.

Fake news by mail

Dame Alun Roberts‏ @ciabaudo

What! Paul Dacre’s newspaper lying? Never!


Dear Mr Dacre, (Editor of the Daily Mail),
With regards to previous correspondence, I was disturbed to read today of yet another attack on Chief Constable Mike Veal by your crime correspondent, Rebecca Carter.
It was of great concern on two accounts.
First, the article quotes the opinion of Lord Armstrong, who clearly seeks to undermine the competence of the Chief Constable.
It was a curious choice by Ms Camber to quote Lord Armstrong as less than two years ago, the Scottish Daily Mail published a withering attack on this individual for his apparent attempts to cover up child abuse by another senior Conservative MP,  Sir Peter Morrison.
I am sure that your readers may have formed a different view of Lord Armstrong’s attack on the Chief Constable had details of the Mail’s earlier article been revealed.

Secondly and possibly even more seriously, Wiltshire Police has confirmed that the Daily Mail has indulged in fake news.

The investigation into Edward Heath has not been called off!

I note that despite communication from your Editor Emeritus, Peter Wright, your newspapers have still not reminded the readers that the heath government’s Chief Whip had admitted to that government’s protection of Conservative MP child sex offenders and even confessed to using that information in order to blackmail those implicated into supporting the government’s policies, including legislation enacted at thatn time.

Thus, the United Kingdom was effectively governed at that time by means of blackmail. I trust your newspapers wil be honest enough to disclose that, as your attacks on Chief Constable Veale have continued,

Finally, I have provided expert witness evidence regarding Edward Heath and others that has been accepted by Wiltshire Police. Included in those named are two of your most senior journalists.



Robert Green

MI5 had known about the allegations but failed to investigate after the MP denied them. Sir Antony Duff, then MI5 director-general, wrote to Lord (then Sir Robert) Armstrong, saying the man ‘has a penchant for small boys’.

Ex-Cabinet Secretary Lord Armstrong was warned by the security services in 1986 that an MP had ‘a penchant for small boys’ but no action was taken. While the MP has not been named, other papers in the files relate to key figures from the 1980s, including Mrs Thatcher’s secretary Sir Peter Morrison (together above)


Lord Armstrong is at the centre of accusations of a major Establishment cover-up

I won’t name child abuse MP: Fury as Mrs Thatcher’s Cabinet chief defends failure to act over senior Tory

  • Senior civil servant in Thatcher government accused of ‘shocking’ attitude
  • Ex-Cabinet Secretary Lord Armstrong defended apparent abuse cover-up
  • Was warned by security services in 1986 that MP had ‘a penchant for boys’
  • Said he believed decision not to investigate claims was ‘correct at the time’
The newly-unearthed files expose how protection of the Establishment took priority over the need to prosecute anyone suspected of paedophilia and over the safety of vulnerable young children.

wo of the files unearthed by the Cabinet Office were said to have come from the Prime Minister’s office.

One related to the diplomat Sir Peter Hayman and the security risks posed by his ‘unnatural sexual proclivities’.

The other named former Tory minister Sir William van Straubenzee

In a letter to Armstrong about the suspected MP, Sir Antony warned that secrecy must prevail. ‘At the present stage…the risks of political embarrassment to the Government is rather greater than the security danger,’ he wrote.

In other words, if the rumours of a sex-ring were true and children had been abused, the welfare of the child must be subjugated to the national interest.

Geenty national lead for missing persons when the force he headed failed to investigate Ted Heath who abused/killed disappeared children?

He started his policing career in 1982 as a Constable with Gloucestershire Constabulary serving in both uniform and CID officer and later Sergeant and Inspector. He moved to Humberside Police in 1998 as a Chief inspector, then Superintendent and finally as Chief Superintendent.

He is the ACPO lead for Missing Persons.

He was divisional commander for East Yorkshire during large scale floods of 2007.

Before his policing career, Geenty was a schoolteacher in Blackpool and Cheltenham.

He has an MA in Criminology and Policing Studies from University of Exeter, and a Bachelor of Education from Saint Pauls College

Geenty  moved to Humberside Police in 1998 as a Chief inspector, then Superintendent and finally as Chief Superintendent.

Humberside had a paedophile as Police Chief

DISGRACED former former Humberside Police Chief Superintendent police chief Alec Alexander formed a “rapport” with Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliff

The former Humberside Police Chief Superintendent chose serial killer Sutcliffe as a “case study” while studying for a degree.

The death of Sarah Wright, who was raped and abused by her police chief father Alec Alexander, but bravely gave evidence against him at his trial…To the outside world Alexander was the personification of respectability but, as Simon Bristow reports, in reality he was a controlling paedophile.

… relationship was a world away from the public image created by the policeman who seemed the personification of respectability.He was the family man who achieved high rank in public office, lived in a large house in an upmarket suburb, drove a Jaguar and wore a Rolex.He also, apparently, gave generously of his time, and “would do anything for anybody”.

And he was the man given the honour of welcoming Prince Phillip to the Police Boys Club, in Elm Avenue, Garden Village, east Hull, in May 1993 – barely a year, as it later emerged, after he had raped his own daughter Sarah.

Police have LOST woman’s Ted Heath statement about a missing boy

14 NOV 2015

Detectives have been in contact with author Linda Corby – more than four decades after her first complaint – to take the details down again

Lost: Woman made a statement about a child disappearing from Ted Heath’s yacht The woman had made a report to police, which she has been told has been lost

A woman who warned Jersey Police about a child vanishing from Ted Heath’s yacht has been told by officers they cannot find her original statement.

Detectives have been in contact with author Linda Corby – more than four decades after her first complaint – to take the details down again.

They also revealed her “enquiry” had now been handed over to Wiltshire Police , who are taking the lead in the investigation into the former Prime Minister.

She was told the police inquiry into Ted Heath had been given the code name; ‘Operation Conifer’, by the English force.

Earlier this year author, Linda Corby, told the Daily Mirror how she and another local politician, who has since died, made two statements to police in the 1970s.

Linda and the Jersey senator were just outside the yacht club in the 1970s as they watched 11 boys aged six to 11 from Jersey’s notorious Haut de la Garenne children’s home board the former PM’s yacht in the island’s capital St Helier.

When the yacht returned, they counted them back and one boy was missing.

The local politician asked Linda to back him up about what they had both witnessed and so they visited Jersey police HQ together to make their statements.

But nothing happened and she claims they were later told how police officers had been ordered not to investigate their concerns.

After her story appeared in the Daily Mirror she contacted Jersey police asking to see her statement but said she was told it could not be found.

Linda explained: “They phoned to tell me they couldn’t find my statement.I was not surprised at all – so much has gone missing over the years.

Linda later received an email saying her enquiry had been handed over.

“I couldn’t believe it when they told me the Wiltshire inquiry was called ‘Operation Conifer’ – how appropriate!” she said.

“ It’s named after the fastest growing tree ever and there are branches going missing all the time. It also shows the paperwork is going to be astronomical.”

The email Linda received last month from Jersey Police stated: “As I said on the phone to you Wiltshire Police are taking the lead on the Ted Heath enquiries and last month we delivered them the paperwork relating to your enquiry.

Previously describing what she saw in the early 1970s, Linda, 62, said: “I was with Jersey senator Ralph Vibert who has since died.

“He said he had been warned about children going on Heath’s yacht, Morning Cloud, and some not coming back.

“We watched as a group of boys from the home got on. They were in shorts and T-shirts and looked as if they were on a day trip.”

Author Linda claimed she later went with the senator to Bouley Bay to watch the yacht return.

She said: “We counted them back but one boy was missing.

This week Linda added: “I don’t know if there was anything in it or not but the fact is it should have been investigated. It is disgusting.”

The mum, from Jersey, insists a few days after they made their statements, officers told them “someone above” had told the officers not to investigate.

She said back then the police were controlled by the defence committee so they assumed it was them who told officers to leave it alone.

In 2008 a massive probe at Haut de la Garenne revealed many cases of child abuse against past residents.

Reports that human remains and evidence of torture had been found were later denied.

The ‘Independent Jersey Care Inquiry’ is investigating the abuse of children in it’s care system over many years.

Jersey Police confirmed they had contacted Linda and the information had now

been handed over to Wiltshire Police.

They could not confirm whether or not the statements had been found, as the officer was on annual leave but they pointed out their system had been computerised since the 70s.

Tim Fortesque – worked as a whip in Edward Heath’s government between 1970 and 1973

In short, the chief whip would cover up any scandal, even if it involved “small boys”, child sexual abuse, child rape, whatever you want to call it.

They wouldn’t report the crime to the police, although they may use their contacts with the police to make sure to make sure the matter went no further.

This means that a paedophile would be the ideal candidate for promotion within the party, easily blackmailed and bought, loyalty and discretion guaranteed.

Two people arrested as part of police probe into child abuse allegations against Sir Edward Heath

Dec 2 2016

Dr Rachel Hoskins, an expert on ritual sacrifice who has been asked by detectives to examine claims made against Heath and others as part of Operation Conifer, was highly critical of the investigation.

Wiltshire Police chief Veale confirmed that, as part of the investigation, a confidential report dealing with satanic ritual sexual abuse had been commissioned by Wiltshire police from a recognised expert registered with the National Crime Agency.

But, he added: “Let me be clear, this part of the investigation is only one small element of the overall inquiry and does not relate to Sir Edward Heath.”


So Richard/Rachel Hoskins’ statements re: Heath? = zero credibility?

Police warned by OWN expert that ritual abuse claims are false – including how the former PM ‘went to candlelit forest for paedophile parties’ 

Dr Hoskins has been analysing witness statements submitted to Operation Conifer related to Ted Heath, since September.

Dr Hoskins said: ‘The Heath inquiry rests, like the Westminster VIP inquiry, on over-active imagination.’

There is a link to a pdf download here [11] of a searchable copy [HT daedalus – Operation Greenlight [13] ] original non searchable here [2] It is also reproduced below in a series of jpgs.

The study was not actually commissioned by the the Department of Health but was partly funded by them for one year. There was no active decision not to publish [10] [App1]

  • Of interest is that the paper mentions that Scotland Yard had a Research Unit on Ritual Abuse, which was disbanded in 1994 and its Report on Ritual Abuse remains unpublished.

Dr Richard Hoskins wants to “give something good back to children” and will be tackling the 26-mile run in aid of the Joint Educational Trust (JET).

JET places children, who have suffered trauma or are at risk, in boarding, specialist or independent day schools as necessary, where they can “recover, grow and be educated in a secure, stable and caring environment”.

Dr Hoskins said: “I spent six years working in child protection and decided to make a difference by becoming a teacher.

“My aim and ethos is to try to give something good back to children. When I heard that the Joint Educational Trust wanted someone to run the 2009 Flora London Marathon for them I leapt at the chance.”

Dr Hoskins, who has never run a marathon, is aiming to raise £2,000 for the trust

From 2012 – Richard Hoskins described as ‘criminologist

Dr. Richard Hoskins

Another example of a police “expert” providing support services to the police:

Graham Powell is one of the country’s most distinguished psychologists, a past president of the British Psychological Society and a current provider of psychology support services to the Serious Organised Crime Agency, the National Crime Squad, the Metropolitan Police, Kent Police, Essex Police and the Internet Watch Foundation.

In Perspectives on Paedophilia, however, he co-authored a chapter which stated: “In the public mind, paedophile attention is generally assumed to be traumatic and to have lasting and wholly deleterious consequences for the victim. The evidence that we have considered here does not support this view … we need to ask not why are the effects of paedophile action so large, but why so small.”



From the above presentation….. Is he/she attempting to deflect from satanists – make out it’s tribal/ethnic?

How a criminologist probing the ritual ‘boy in the Thames’ murder had to confront the personal tragedy of his own daughter’s mysterious death in Africa

It’s a story that could be taken from a novel – but every word is true. When Dr Richard Hoskins, an expert on African religion, was asked  to investigate the murder of  a young boy in London, he was driven to revisit his own terrible experience of death and witchcraft in the Congo…

London, September 21, 2001

… the mutilated torso of a little boy from the water. The child had no name, so the police called him Adam.

I was at my desk when, the following January, they called. My room was in a temporary building at Bath Spa University campus with a window looking out over fields. Dry stone walls and clumps of ash and oak trees stood in the winter light.

‘Dr Hoskins, I’m Detective Inspector Will O’Reilly from Scotland Yard’s Serious Crime Group,’ said the voice.

I was a senior lecturer in African religions and had spoken on the radio about the Adam case. Now DI O’Reilly wanted to pay me a visit.

Lost child: Author and criminologist Richard Hoskins with his daughter Abigail

Lost child: Author and criminologist Richard Hoskins with his daughter Abigail

My first marriage had ended, but it had given me two wonderful children, David, now 12, and Elspeth, ten, and my relationship with Sue, their mother, remained warm.While at Bath, I’d met Faith. Now in my mid-30s, I was close to being a contented man…

Bolobo, Congo, 1987 to 1989

We had been working at the Baptist Mission medical centre in the village of Bolobo, 300 miles from Kinshasa, for more than a year when Sue told me she was pregnant.

Twins, and a breech birth, well  over two months premature. In this place. I had the most acute sense of  approaching catastrophe, as if the door of an enormous iron vault was closing on us all.

It was a nightmare scene, hot and sulphurous, full of pain and blood. I had never imagined that an event  so masked in rosy myths could be as barbarous.

She was born dead, our first daughter. I never saw her face. I don’t know what happened to her. Somehow the child, no bigger than a paperback book, was spirited away.

… a second child was dragged into the world, mewling, gasping for breath. But somehow alive –  Abigail

Despite the odds, Abigail grew into a delightful impish toddler. Life  settled into its slow rhythm. Sue became pregnant again. Then, one day, I had a visitor.

‘The living dead control this world and everything in it, Mr Richard. They bring life, and they take it away. They tell us what to do.‘And twins have a special power, Mr Richard. Mbo is calling your Mpia to come and join her in the shadowlands. I am sure of it.’

‘Her twin sister? Calling her? But she’s . . .’ I stopped myself.

‘No, Mr Richard,’ Tata Mpia said gently. ‘Mbo is not dead. That is the thing I am trying to say to you.

‘She is one of the living dead.  And she is calling out to her twin sister, calling her to the world of the living dead.’

I stared back at him. I didn’t want this vile superstition in my home. Yet I could see it had taken great courage for Tata Mpia to tell me this. And I realised he too was scared, scared for me, scared for my family.

‘You need to see the nganga,’ Tata Mpia went on urgently. Though sometimes called witch doctors, ngangas were really traditional  healers or shamans. ‘The nganga will call upon the living dead to give your first daughter rest.

‘You must spill some blood, Mr Richard. If you spill blood it will satisfy the living dead. If you do not wish to lose your daughter, you must perform a sacrifice.’

I couldn’t possibly get into this. The very idea was absurd. Yet I had not instantly dismissed it. Perhaps I had spent too long out in the villages. And besides, I loved Abigail so. Could it really do any harm to cover all the bases? For the cost of a single goat, it would be over and done with. Back in England, in time, I would laugh about it at dinner parties.

But I knew it would not be as  simple as that. There is a bridge to  be crossed when stepping into a strange culture, and once crossed there is no way back. If I made  that sacrifice, I would cease to be Western. I would open a door in my mind – and perhaps in my soul – to alien demons. I wrestled with my conscience as the vast brown river slid past. Here the river was ten miles wide.

But I knew I was not prepared to cross that bridge. There would be  no sacrifice.

Bolobo, June 1989

I knew something was wrong as soon as I walked through the door. It was about a month after Tata Mpia’s visit.

Abigail always filled the house with laughter. But today everything was quiet. The front room was empty.

In Abigail’s bedroom her toys were strewn around in cheerful disorder. It was unthinkable that our chattering 18-month-old daughter, our little noise machine, could possibly be here. And suddenly there she was.

My heart swooped with relief. She was standing at the window in our bedroom, her finger in her mouth. ‘Abigail? What are you up to?’

She turned her head, and the expression on her small face, normally as bright as a new flower, lifted the hairs on the back of my neck.

There was something in  her eyes I had never seen before. Something that made her look old beyond her years. She turned away to stare out of the window again.This was the only point in the house from which it was possible to see the graveyard.

Side by side: Flowers lay on the graves of Mbo Hoskins and Abigail Jane Hoskins

Abigail died a few weeks later on July 24. She had been suffering a light fever, no more. When I saw her there – eyes and mouth open – my rational brain knew that all hope was gone

  • The Boy In The River, by Richard Hoskins, is published by Pan


A breakthrough that helped lead to the boy’s identification came in 2002 – in extraordinary circumstances.

A woman called Joyce Osagiede told Glasgow social workers that she belonged to a cult and her daughters must attend a ritual ceremony.

Osagiede had already told immigration officials that she had married a member of a cult called The Black Coat Eyes Of The Devil Guru Maharaj.

She claimed he had sacrificed her youngest child.

In December 2002, she was deported, and when later interviewed by British police in Lagos, she said she had been a cult organiser and had bought a pair of orange-red shorts similar to those found on Adam.

She added: ‘I know he was killed in Lewisham.’

She also claimed in 2008  to an ITV journalist that she had brought Adam to London and even had a photograph.

His real name, she said, was Ikpomwosa. She remains free in Nigeria.

No one has ever been charged with Adam’s murder.

Islington paid £4,372 to fund the trip, including Dr Hoskins’s fee of £3,080, half of the cost of the £710 flight, taxi fares, accommodation and refreshments bills.

Speaking yesterday at the education conference at Wellington College, in Berkshire, Dr Hoskins, a research fellow in criminology at Roehampton University, said: “These deliverances can be very violent.

I went to the Congo in 2005 and spent a fortnight with Mardoche’s extended family.

2016 Richard Hoskins: I am the only “multicultural expert on the national police database

Mardoche’s representative, Sarah Beskine, persuaded the judge I should be instructed. 

I asked Islington Council if they would co-fund my trip to Africa to investigate. 

To my astonishment, they funded half my costs to the tune of £2,200, although a council source informed me there was disquiet about a white person being instructed on a ‘black case’.

The boy, whose family were from Africa, had been taken into care by Islington council in north London.



The expert in African religion involved, Dr Richard Hoskins, claimed during a speech at a college on Saturday that he was flown out to DRC to investigate in 2004 (elsewhere he says in 2005)

The High Court therefore gave permission for Dr Hoskins to be jointly instructed by all the parties to give advice on his area of expertise. In order to prepare his report, he met members of the boy’s extended family while on a prearranged research trip to the DRC.

“It is totally unacceptable that an expert instructed in the course of care proceedings should disregard his professional duty of confidentiality in what would appear to be a cynical attempt to promote his book. We have written to him asking him to stop discussing this case publicly.

The story has come to light after a talk by Dr Hoskins at the Festival of Education at Wellington College on Saturday (June 23).

Dr Hoskins said: “All I said in my text at Wellington was that a council part funded me on a trip to Africa to see if a child in their care should be sent back to Africa for an exorcism as the family requested.”


Social workers considered sending boy to the Congo for exorcism

Council chiefs have been criticised for considering sending a boy in their care for exorcism.

24 Jun 2012

The boy, whose family were from Africa, had been taken into care by Islington council in north London.

His mother, who no longer had responsibility for her child, asked for him to be sent to the Democratic Republic of Congo for “deliverance”.

The boy’s family claimed this was necessary because they believed he was possessed by “kindoki” or evil spirits.

Islington social services officials then paid more than £4,000 for an expert to travel to Africa to investigate.

The expert, Richard Hoskins, an academic specialising in African religions, was alarmed by what he saw on the visit, and advised the council that the boy should not be exorcised.

During his visit to Kinshasa, the capital of the DRC, in 2005, Dr Hoskins met the grandparents of the boy at the centre of the case. They told him that the child had been “infected by sorcery” while in the UK and that he “would destroy them all”.

The deliverance that the boy was to undergo would have involved starving him of food and fluids for three days.

The Islington investigation followed high-profile cases in which children born in Africa, or of African heritage, living in the UK had been abused or killed by relatives who believed they were possessed.

In 2000, Victoria Climbié, eight, from the Ivory Coast, was tortured and murdered by her great aunt and her boyfriend in Haringey.

Three years later, the mother, aunt and uncle of an eight year old girl in Hackney were sent to prison for between four and ten years for a “campaign of torture” against her

The academic, who gave evidence earlier this year at the Kristy Bamu murder trial, is also the author of The Boy in the River, which explores the unsolved case of “Adam”, a young black boy whose mutilated torso was found floating in the Thames in 2001.

Dr Hoskins said he was currently working on a case where a teenage girl, born in the UK of African descent, had been removed from her family following a violent “deliverance” in which she was hit with sticks, cut on her arms with a knife and had chilli pepper rubbed into her eyes and genitalia.

She was placed by social services in the temporary care of her pastor, who had promoted the use of the exorcism and then put pressure on the child to withdraw all evidence.

Islington council acknowledged it had paid Dr Hoskins to travel to Africa, but claimed it was on the instruction of a judge.

Dr Hoskins was instructed to meet with extended family members to assess their belief that a child of the family was possessed by spirits. This was on the instruction of the Family Court during care proceedings.”

The council said it could not disclose the court order. Dr Hoskins said he had never been aware of a court order asking for the visit to be arranged.

A spokesman for the Department for Education said: “It is not acceptable for councils to be considering this. These services can be extremely traumatic. We are tackling all forms of child abuse linked to belief, including belief in witchcraft or spirit possession.

“Such abuse is rightly condemned by people of all cultures, communities and faiths.


Press Release: Dr Richard Hoskins re. Islington Council and a research trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2004

I wish to clarify and correct certain erroneous comments regarding Islington Council in the media.

I was already going to the DRC on a research trip and following a meeting of all parties under the auspices of Hopkin Murray Beskine it was decided to request that my trip be extended to include a visit to the wider family of the child in question, interviews with them and examination of what a deliverance service would entail. For this 50% of my research costs, including flight, would be paid for by the parties in question. The proposed visit to the extended family was agreed by all parties involved in the proceedings.

It was not correct that Islington Council alone funded my trip to the DRC. I can confirm that it was a joint instruction during Court proceedings to enable the Court and the parties to have as much information as possible about issues which, at that time, were relatively new and on which no guidance had been issued to local authorities.

The Council wish me to clarify that the reason they initiated proceedings was to protect the child concerned and that they took such action to prevent him being returned to the DRC for any type of deliverance service. I am happy to accept that this was the position.

I am also happy to accept that Islington Council were trying to ensure thorough investigation into the matter, around which I have no problem. Indeed I thoroughly support the Council’s desire to ensure the welfare of the child is paramount. There is a difference between investigating a matter thoroughly and actually sending a child back for exorcism.

My over-riding concern is the welfare of the child and other children. Sometimes we have to raise difficult questions in order to make best practice happen. My driving motive therefore in issuing this press release is that we move on from this particular case to the more general discussion of how child welfare is addressed in cases where multi-cultural matters are pertinent. Let’s never forget the child is at the centre.

£4,000 visit ‘outrageous’

DESPITE the seriousness of British witchcraft abuse, Dr Hoskins says a £4,000
taxpayer-funded research trip he took to the Congo was an “outrageous” waste
of public cash.

The trip was arranged by Islington Council social services after a mother
claimed her 14-year-old son needed to be sent home because he was possessed.
Dr Hoskins, a research fellow in criminology at Roehampton University, said:
“If I didn’t come back with an assessment, he would have been sent out
anyway. It’s outrageous. As a taxpayer justifying that, it’s not right.”

Islington Council said the trip was on the instructions of a judge.


Dr Hoskins: This is my feature in today’s Mail on Sunday. To warn you: it is quite gritty. It has been a busy few days with that, the unexpected appearance of Sky News for an interview at my Mum’s in Norfolk and then picking up my lad for a few days. A week from now I’m off to Malaysia to start my next novel. Still, I’ve always enjoyed living life to the max so why change the habit of a lifetime?

Richard Hoskins’ first book, The Boy in the River, was published by Pan Macmillan and became a Sunday Times bestseller,[1] receiving critical praise in several press publications.[31][32][33] His first crime thriller is due to be published in 2015.

The Boy in the River was named Gold Winner in the Crime Writers’ Association Dagger Awards 2013.[34] The panel of judges ‘highly commended’ his ‘gripping story’.[35]


Expert Witness

Whilst working at Bath Spa University, Richard Hoskins was called upon by the Metropolitan Police Service to work as an expert witness in the Torso in the Thames case. He has since been called as an expert witness in over a hundred criminal cases, including numerous high-profile murders, such as those of Victoria Climbie, Jodi Jones and the Eric Bikubi and Magalie Bamu case. Hoskins has been called upon to provide commentary on these cases and the related field by numerous press organisations. He is an expert on African religions. He is the only registered multi-cultural expert on the UK national police SOCA database.

Richard Hoskins has made television and radio appearances concerning numerous cases, most notably a documentary for the BBC entitled “Witch Child“, a documentary concerned with the Torso in the Thames case and a BBC Radio 4 programme.

He has also taught Religious Studies at Shebbear College in Devon. He has also held a deputy headship.

How he came to be head of religious studies at Shebbear College is detailed in his book Sacrifice.

“My world began to fall apart internally and externally in terms of what I was dealing with. The material of these ritual crimes was blowing my world apart. I really wanted to do something positive for children. That was key for me after seeing what was going on.”

Interestingly, Richard’s wife, Faith Warner, was one of the first girls to attend Shebbear College.

“I never in a million years thought that I would come here. Faith’s parents live four miles away. I don’t know if I believe in fate but sometimes I think: ‘yeah I do actually’. It’s been really strange. It still feels very right and I love it.”



A FORMER TV broadcaster is to be the new head of religious studies at a West Devon school.

Headmaster of Shebbear College, Bob Barnes, said he was delighted to announce the appointment Dr Richard Hoskins. Mr Barnes said: ’Richard Hoskins has a wide experience of teaching and life and will bring a fresh perspective to the department.’ Dr Hoskins has been a University lecturer for the past ten years and joins Shebbear College from King’s College London to teach Religious Studies and French. Whilst at King’s, Dr Hoskins often appeared on radio and television to give expert comment on religious affairs, and presented a BBC2 Documentary on new churches. After advising on child protection policies he decided he wanted to ’make a difference’ by teaching children instead of adults. He said he was ’absolutely delighted’ to take on the challenge of stretching children academically in a subject that required them to think seriously about the contemporary world, while at the same time encouraging them to enjoy the subject. Dr Hoskins is married to Faith, a former student at Shebbear College who is a tutor at Exeter University. They have a five month old son

Mr Fiennes accepted an invitation to the college by Dr Richard Hoskins, Head of Religious Studies, who has written a book entitled ’Sacrifice,’ which will be published later this year.

Mr Hoskins’ agent passed the book to Mr Fiennes’ agent, as it is hoped he will star in the film version of the tale.

The book has two parallel stories. One is about how Mr Hoskins came to be involved in the investigation into the murder of a young African boy in London, and the other is about his own journey to Africa when he left school, and what happened to him there. As the book progresses the two stories come together.
Fiennes is an eighth cousin of Charles, Prince of Wales, and a third cousin of adventurer Ranulph Fiennes and author William Fiennes.

Shebbear Child Sex Abuse

Victims of paedophile teacher Simon Harris get payout from former school Shebbear College

Jul 15th 2016
Four pupils abused by a paedophile Latin teacher who went on to prey on desperately poor Kenyan street children have received a payout from their former boarding school Shebbear College.
Simon Harris molested them at Shebbear College in Devon where he was a teacher and deputy housemaster in the 1980s.
Harris, of Pudleston near Leominster in Herefordshire, was jailed for 17 years and four months in February 2015 for a string of sex offences including abuse of three of the pupils from the school in the late 1980s, and five Kenyan boys between 2002 and 2013.
He set up a charity in Kenya in the 1990s, which prosecutors said he used to project an acceptable face to the community.
Harris became familiar with Kenya in the 1980s after taking British children there on trekking expeditions. He came up with the idea of running a charity in Kenya – called VAE – giving young British people the chance to teach local children during gap years.
But he was secretly taking advantage of children living in poverty by luring them into his luxury home with food, money and the promise of education.
(Wonder how well Richard Hoskins and convicted paedo Simon Harris knew one another…both taught at Shebbear, have partcipated in African charities etc ….At the age of twenty-one Richard Hoskins travelled to Africa intending a gap year, but stayed from 1986 until 1992.[2])

The Methodist Independent Schools Trust, which is responsible for Shebbear College, has now settled claims by the four former pupils.

Lawyers for the men would not reveal the scale of the settlement.
Solicitor Rebekah Read, of Leigh Day, said: “We are pleased to have obtained compensation for these individuals.”

Sexual abuse settlement against Methodist Independent Schools Trust

6 April 2016

Four men who suffered sexual abuse as children at a public school in Devon have settled their claims against the Methodist Independent Schools Trust which is responsible for the school.

The men allege that they were abused by Simon Harris whilst they were boarding at Shebbear College.  Simon Harris was a teacher and a deputy house master, employed at the school during the 1980’s.

One of the Kenyan victims who gave evidence during the trial committed suicide during proceedings.
Investigators from the National Crime Agency (NCA) who travelled to Kenya in a bid to trace victims described him as “one of the most prolific child sex offenders” they had ever encountered. The legal action claimed that the Trust was vicariously liable for the actions of Harris, and that it had a duty to protect pupils.
Harris left the school in 1989 as a result of abuse allegations, and set up his charity in the Kenyan town of Gilgil in the 1990s.
He spent 15 months in a British jail for possession of indecent images of children following a 2009 conviction.

Why did Simon Harris hold this post in the first place? It is noticeable that the charity for which he worked has not been much mentioned in the news coverage. I have no doubt that this is a deliberate so as to protect their name and reputation.

When reading the story, I kept wondering why, given Simon Harris was appointed by a British charity, did they not require him to fill in a DBS/ CRB form? This would have straight away flagged his previous history of sexual abuse of children under his care.

Gilgil has military bases. Gilgil has links to ‘false flag terrorism’. The US military has had plans to operate in Gilgil.

Some soldiers from Gilgil were involved in the Westgate shopping mall operation.

Kenya charity boss Simon Harris has jail time cut

Paedophile Shebbear College teacher Simon Harris abused more children after police dropped investigation

Harris left the school in 1989 as a result of abuse allegations, and set up his charity in the Kenyan town of Gilgil in the 1990s.

December 18, 2014

POLICE dropped a 1980s investigation into a North Devon teacher who went on to abuse more children, it has emerged.

Simon Harris, 55, was this week found guilty of seven charges of indecent and sexual assault on youngsters as well as possessing indecent images of children.

The crimes happened during his time as a charity worker in Kenya, a role he was able to take up despite being suspended from working at Shebbear College, near Holsworthy, after allegations were made by pupils there that he indecently assaulted them in the 1980s.

The complaints were investigated by Devon and Cornwall Police but dropped because the force says the boys’ families did not want the cases pursued. It was only when West Mercia Police, which was investigating the Kenya abuse, re-opened the Shebbear College case that Harris was charged with committing the earlier assaults.

In the intervening years he had taken up work for a children’s charity and was able to abuse again.

Simon Harris has links to some of the top people, such as Sir George Young (above) who has links to Sir Jimmy Savile.

Rev Peter Hullah played a role at Richard Hoskins’ (Uppingham) school and later head of Chetham.
Oh, and Hullah has very strong connections to Salisbury:
He is now attached to the parish of St Martin in the Fields, Director of Hopeful Leadership Ltd and a consultant to various charities including Together for Sudan.

The Rt Rev Peter Fearnley Hullah, Bishop from Salisbury

The Rt Rev Peter Fearnley Hullah had worked as a director from the 16th of May 2002 up til the termination date on the 7th of July 2005. This manager had worked in Royal School Of Church Music(The) situated at 19 The Close, Salisbury, SP4 6HJ, in Wiltshire. Royal School Of Church Music(The) was started on the 8th of August 1930. The Rt Rev Peter Fearnley Hullah worked with many professionals for example: Sir David Harrison (from the 16th of May 2002 to the 7th of July 2005), Spencer William Freeman (from the 16th of May 2002 to the 7th of July 2005), Christopher William Field (from the 16th of May 2002 to the 7th of July 2005), Malcolm John Batt (from the 16th of May 2002 to the 7th of July 2005), Julia Mary Harrison Place (from the 16th of May 2002 to the 15th of July 2011). The Rt Rev Peter Fearnley Hullah was appointed to 3 companies. Other director jobs: Salisbury Diocesan Board Of Education(The) (The Diocesan Education Centre in Wilton, incorporated on the 4th of February 1949), The Headmasters’ And Headmistresses’ Conference (12 The Point Rockingham Road in Leicestershire, incorporated on the 26th of February 1909). We found 26 filings that mention Peter Fearnley, such as the documents submitted on: 28th of May 2002, 26th of June 2002, 26th of June 2002, 27th of May 2003, 27th of September 2003. Peter Fearnley is 67 years old.

Among the ripples of the police investigations into 1980s student rape at Chethams, the RNCM, Guildhall and other music schools, a private school reached a quiet settlement this week with a former student who had been sexually abused by a teacher between 1976 and 1983. –  link

During the time of these abuses, there was a chaplain and housemaster at Sevenoaks School called Peter Hullah.

Stuart Neilson tells us that, as a pupil, he discussed sexual bullying and abuse with Hullah.  ‘I am absolutely certain that he was aware of the nature and extent of the sexual abuse, and that he was both chaplain and a housemaster,’ he attests. At Mike Brewer’s trial, Hullah admitted being party to ‘a cover-up’ to arrange Brewer’s removal from the school. Except for his evidence at the trial, Hullah has maintained total media silence and refused requests for interview.


Music school pupil abused by violin teacher at 15

Oct 1 2019

A former pupil at Chetham’s School of Music has described being sexually assaulted by her violin tutor, Chris Ling, at the age of 15.

The abuse started during a half-term course while all the other pupils were out, the witness told the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

Former Chetham’s head teacher John Vallins said he was unaware of concerns about Ling’s conduct at the time.

Ling’s abuse emerged in 1990 after he left the school, the inquiry heard.

The former pupil, known as A2, said Chris Ling told her to keep the abuse a secret.

He told her she would have no chance of succeeding as a soloist if she disclosed to anyone what had happened, said the witness who gave evidence anonymously.

Chetham’s School in Manchester is one of the UK’s leading music schools.

The witness said the first sexual assault took place during the autumn half-term in 1989 when Ling organised a special course for pupils in a house in Manchester.

She said he assaulted her again at Easter in 1990 before he left his job at the end of the summer term, taking some pupils with him.

She said she felt “devastated” at not being among them.

“He had brainwashed us into thinking he was our only means of success,” she told the inquiry.

Police interview

Later that year, evidence began to emerge of sexual assaults by Ling on up to 12 other female pupils which led to a police investigation.

A2 told the inquiry the school gave her very little support when she was interviewed by police and failed to tell her parents what was going on.

Her new violin teacher was a man who had a reputation for having affairs with pupils and when he made inappropriate comments and stood too close to her during lessons, she complained but the school failed to support her, A2 told the inquiry.

Ling’s abuse “affected me emotionally and physically”, she told the inquiry.

“I’ve not played classical music since leaving there.

“I find it hard to listen to and I’ve burned most of my music.

“It has had an effect on my relationships.

“I seem to attract father-figure type men who end up having control issues over me and I end up becoming withdrawn and detached… my marriage has broken down.”

‘Very violent’

Another former pupil, referred to as A1, described a violent sexual assault by Ling when she was staying overnight at his home after a concert.

“It was very violent… I couldn’t breathe,” she told the inquiry.

She said Ling had spent months grooming her ahead of the initial assault.

The abuse occurred again on several occasions and she was one of the pupils Ling took with him to the US where she had a “horrible” time, she told the inquiry.

When she returned to the school a few months later, she was interviewed by police but, otherwise, pupils were told not to mention Ling.

“The silence just made it so much worse,” A1 told the inquiry.

She said the abuse left her “generally hostile and wary towards males” and believes the competitive culture within schools like Chetham’s can allow sexual predators to thrive.

Mr Vallins, head teacher of Chetham’s from 1974 to 1992, said he personally had no part in appointing Ling who was hired directly by the music department.

He said he was unaware of extra-curricular courses run by Ling.

He told the inquiry that at the time the school had no written child protection policies: “It was a different world then to the world we live in now. It would be wrong to think that Chetham’s, in not having those practices, was unusual.”

He added: “It would be idle of me to deny that it is evident from the subject of this inquiry that there were bad things happening which I did not know about, and I should have done, and I can’t say how bitterly I regret that.”

The inquiry heard that seven individuals have been either convicted, were likely to have been convicted if alive, or have admitted to sexual relationships with pupils while Mr Vallins was head teacher.

A former pupil, Ian Pace, told the inquiry the music department run by Michael Brewer, and the academic part of the school were completely separate.

“It was almost like two schools and the teachers didn’t really talk to each other either,” Mr Pace told the inquiry.

He said there should be an official regulatory body specifically for music education.

The evidence is part of the residential schools phase of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, one of 14 separate investigations it is holding.

Ling moved to the US in the 1990s where he ran a talent agency. He shot himself dead in 2015 after police arrived at his home to arrest him for extradition to the UK. Greater Manchester Police had been planning to charge him with 77 offences.

This is Peter Hullah Director of Together for Sudan
The Rev. (later Bishop) Hullah went on to become head of Chetham’s. He once walked in on the convicted rapist Mike Brewer while he was fondling a naked girl.
At Chetham’s, as at Sevenoaks, the Rev. Hullah turned a blind eye. –

The chief abuser, says Stuart Neilson, was a technology teacher called Gerd Sommerhoff, a minor celebrity who once presented science programmes on the BBC. Sommerhoff, described in his Wiki entry as a ‘pioneer of theoretical neuroscience’, went on to teach at Trinity College, Cambridge, and was awarded the OBE. He was the grandson of Elise Schumann, third child of Robert and Clara Schumann, and had been brought to England as a child in 1931. Sommerhoff died in April 2002. Stuart Neilson is concerned that his offences should not be forgotten.

He wonders if there are wider ramifications to the case.




Appointment of a new Director for Together for Sudan

Peter  Hullah’s first teaching post over 30 years ago was at a pioneering girl’s school in Uganda and since then he has been Chaplain of the King’s School, Canterbury and Head of Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester.
He has also visited schools in Africa to learn at first hand what it is which makes a truly Hopeful School for its students and for the community it serves. Before moving to Northampton Academy, The Rt Rev Peter Hullah was Bishop of Ramsbury in the Diocese of Salisbury. He chaired the Salisbury Diocesan Link with the Episcopal Church of Sudan.

‘wealthy socialite’ Hornby, 35, a Lloyds’ Underwriter and younger brother of the Managing Director of W.H.Smith Sir Simon Hornby had been leading a double life

Sir Simon Hornby, his older brother had seven years previously married the Queen Mother’s racehorse trainer’s daughter, Sharon Cazalet, in a star studded wedding. The Queen Mother, Princess Margaret, Noel Coward, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are all on film walking into a tiny village church in Shipbourne in Kent for the occasion.[ii] At the Cazalet family home Fairlawnes in Kent, the Queen Mother had often been a guest, as well as the historian Elizabeth Longford (nee Harman) and her husband, Labour Peer, Lord Frank Longford[iii], Harriet Harman’s uncle who had self-funded and produced the 1972 PORN report


Raywood’s rooms were a half-way house, used for housing ‘fresh bunnies’ or ‘fresh young chickens’ (young runaway boys new to London) before being selected and passed on to more affluent and influential clients such as Charles Hornby.

What possibly mattered most to the Albany Trustees was that Hornby’s sister had married and divorced the Duke of Marlborough, and that Hornby as an old Etonian, ex-9th Lancers officer and amateur steeplechase jockey was very well connected, reported by the newspapers as hosting Prince Charles amongst his circle of dinner friends at Shipton Moyne, Tetbury, his Gloucestershire estate.

BUSINESSES have helped to raise £15,000 towards building a new school in Africa.

Ashtons Estate Agents, Hethertons Solicitors, Yorvik Homes and Intandem Communications joined forces to raise money for Build Africa’s “build a school” programme in rural Kenya.

A black-tie charity dinner and sponsored walk of the Three Peaks of Yorkshire have already raised more than half the amount needed to fund the building of four new classrooms at a school at Kamunthiniin, which is attended by more than 300 children.

Rachel Goddard, managing director of Intandem Communications, said: “We’re thrilled with the support that we have had from the local business community and our friends and colleagues.”

I’ve also never believed in the absolute nature of any categories, including those of gender. Whilst many people born male may not identify with my degree of femininity, no-one is 100% male or female.

It gets weirder. Seems his teen son committed suicide in 2009 after escaping a secure mental unit:

An inquest has opened into the death of a teenager who was electrocuted after climbing a 33,000-volt electricity pylon in Weston-super-Mare.

David Hoskins, 19, from Yatton, escaped from a psychiatric unit close to Weston General Hospital two years ago.

He was very popular at school but he started to change aged 17, when his behaviour became “increasingly bizarre and unexplained”.

In 2007 he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

Mrs Hoskins said that due to deterioration in her son’s behaviour she had, in September 2008, asked him to leave home.

He moved into supported accommodation in Clevedon but, she added, that by March 2009 he had dropped out from college, insisted he was not bipolar and had also stopped taking his medication.

The inquest in North Somerset heard that cannabis was a factor in Mr Hoskins’ condition and that the teenager also confessed to mental health workers that he took cocaine, ecstasy and ketamine.

The Long Fox Unit from which Mr Hoskins escaped from is run by Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust.

An Oxford graduate working with young people every day at Brixton-based youth marketing agency, Livity – clients – Childline…



Co-founders, Sam Conniff and Michelle Clothier, wanted to change lives.
They were two youth marketers, disillusioned with selling consumer goods to kids. When talking about the future of innovative business they inspired a shared vision in each other to harness the influence of big brands to tackle social challenges facing young people. From day one Livity opened the doors of its offices to young people to come and be involved in creating the work we deliver for clients.
For over a decade Livity has pioneered co-creation with young people in the formation of youth facing concepts, campaigns and communities and more recently has adapted, upgraded and deepened its methodology into what we now call Youth-Centred Design. We maintain competitive advantage through the deep youth insight and understanding this methodology gives us, and in return young people are provided with inspiration, skills, experience and access to employment and opportunity.




Sam Conniff and Michelle Clothier set up their youth marketing agency in 2001 with a social purpose. They didn’t just want Livity to help companies connect with young people. They also wanted to mentor some of the young people their clients were trying to reach.

2 December 2013

We exist to benefit the lives of young people but through a self-sustaining profit model.”

Or as Conniff puts it: “We give working-class kids middle-class opportunities.”

He cites a new campaign for the children’s charity NSPCC to combat teenage bullying through sexting — sending sexual messages and images by mobile phone. After discussing it in the office, it became clear the problem was “prolific”. Livity’s response was to create a free phone app, called Zipit, with the slogan “Get flirty chat back on track”.

Conniff, 37, and Clothier, 42, met when he was running a promotions business and she was a client. They raised £10,000 and borrowed £20,000, with a view that if Livity couldn’t find a client in a few months, they should give up. They won two: Genie Mobile (later part of O2) and Lambeth Council. “They’re still clients today,” says Clothier.

Livity has links to many local institutions.

The only setback came in 2004 when they were over-ambitious and had to make redundancies. They like having a mix of private- and public-sector clients, so when David Cameron’s coalition slashed marketing spend, Livity coped. Having a social purpose means sometimes turning down work such as an alcopop client.

2.35 – Tom Watson / PMQs / D-Notice / Leon Brittan / Harvey Proctor
[CHRIS] the one interesting thing above all else, when Tom Watson asked a question in the House of Commons recently, as you know

[BILL] Member of Parliament

[CHRIS] Member of Parliament, he also asked about the use of D-Notices. D-Notices are notices that they’re supposed to be advisory, but basically the government doesn’t like a story in the newspapers about to print, it’ll slap a D-Notice

[BILL] A D-Notice is a gagging order

[CHRIS] is a gagging order. Now when Mary Moss and I left the coroner’s court the entire world’s press was outside, obviously it was a very, very big story

[BILL] Absolutely

[CHRIS] Because we’d stood in the witness box, we’d named Leon Brittan we’d named Harvey Proctor, we’d told the inquest all the evidence we had about who’d been involved at the Elm Guest House, so by any stretch of the imagination it was big news story. When we got outside the coroner’s court there was, they were all there, BBC, ITV, Channel Four, Sky, you name it.

[BILL] Yeah

18.15 – Eric Kasir / Neil Kier / Carol Kasir
[CHRIS] I knew who to complain to, how the system worked. Now, when the police, because they thought, they knew that Carol Kasir’s son, Eric, was 10, was living there. They also suspected and their own words ‘that other children might be present’ they approached Richmond Services, told them about the raid. Now procedure dictates that normally you would have got, say, the local field social worker in the local office who would have come in with the police on the raid. Any children present, they would have taken, they would have taken them into care. However, on the day of the raid, the man from Kingston, err from Richmond Council, who, who was on the raid with the police was Neil Kier, the officer in charge of Grafton, who took Eric into care.

[BILL] That’s her son Eric?

[CHRIS] That’s her son Eric. So you can understand why Carol was so angry.

[BILL] So, so, she knew, she knew that all the kids were coming from this children’s home. Then what they done on the night of the raid was took her own child and put her own child in that children’s home.

[CHRIS] Not only that, but with the very guy who had been one of the people supplying the boys, so Carol knew full well what that meant.


^ If the 2 persons referred to here are Eric Kasir and Leon Brittan, why is The Telegraph allowing Brittan’s name to be whitewashed?

 And just who was that perpetrator Mr Settle? What other files were being stored at Barnes nick where Clive Driscoll was summoned?

Who leant on Eric Kasir? Why are hacks letting Leon Brittan get off with blue murder?

Did the questioning of Eric Kasir lead Paul Settle to believe that Leon Brittan, patron of Haroon Kasir’s EGH, was a paedophile?

Are you listening Mr Settle? What did you have to say about Leon Brittan after your team had interviewed Eric Kasir?

Could Stephen Wright, close friend of the Met’s Settle, perhaps enquire WHY the payment was made ‘grudgingly’?

There are incredible similarities between no-name Hoskins and Wright buddy Settle. Is this a coincidence? Brave whistleblowers or stooges?


Did Settle and Hoskins have the ‘courage’ to be ‘whistleblowers’ because they were doing the bidding of those who commissioned them?

Interesting how much Stephen Wright and Barbara Hewson have in common: Lantern Project, False Memories, Nick

 An interview with Proctor mate Iain Dale. Very interesting!

Wiltshire Police’s Chief Constable Mike Veale, who is in charge of the Conifer inquiry

He makes ref to RRH and ‘ritual – and says it’s a small strand (c 8:14) & does NOT relate to Sir Edward Heath – plus ‘Nick’ (c 7:54) is not one of the claimants of abuse



Leadership = Common Purpose?

Mike Veale, Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police, has today (Friday 2 December 2016) published an open letter video message in relation to the ongoing national investigation into allegations of non-recent child abuse made against Sir Edward Heath (Operation Conifer).
Published on Dec 2, 2016

Open letter from Chief Constable Mike Veale – Operation Conifer

Edward Heath child abuse investigation ‘not a witch-hunt’

Dr Rachel Hoskins, an expert on ritual sacrifice who has been asked by detectives to examine claims made against Heath and others as part of Operation Conifer, was highly critical of the investigation.

Veale confirmed that, as part of the investigation, a confidential report dealing with satanic ritual sexual abuse had been commissioned by Wiltshire police from a recognised expert registered with the National Crime Agency. But, he added: “Let me be clear, this part of the investigation is only one small element of the overall inquiry and does not relate to Sir Edward Heath.”

Wiltshire chief constable says significant number of people have disclosed claims of historical abuse against ex-prime minister

In an extraordinarily detailed public statement defending his officers’ involvement in Operation Conifer, Mike Veale said a significant number of individuals had disclosed allegations of abuse, but he declined to confirm numbers.

“This investigation is still live and, as such, the numbers will be subject to change,” Veale said.


‘At least 15’ sex abuse allegations have been made against Sir Edward Heath

The Cover-up continues…


2 December 2016

The findings of the Sir Edward Heath sex abuse investigation may never be made public after the man leading the controversial inquiry said they would be contained in a confidential report.

At the conclusion of the investigation a confidential closing report will be written...and at that time I will take advice as to what I can legally put in the public domain.”


Will Operation Conifer Bury Edward Heath’s Child Abuse?

December 3, 2016

If the findings are not made public what justification is there for spending the enormous amount of money on the investigation? Is the investigation justified? Of course, it is! Potential victims have made complaints of horrendous sexual abuse by ex-prime minister Edward Heath.

It is worth noting that so many of these investigations seem to proceed once the perpetrators are dead. Furthermore, as the police dig, they will have exposed other crimes by perverts at all levels of society. It seems that the Elite often get away completely while low-level abusers get nailed.

All police investigations should transparent and the findings released to the public.

Wiltshire Police were criticised for letting sex offenders go free

Police force that let rapists go free if they apologised to victims is investigated by watchdog over his (chief constable Patrick Geenty) force’s handling of sex abuse allegations

That complaint was in relation to the way a case of historic sexual abuse had been managed.

Investigation relates to complaints about sex abuse investigation in 2008/10


Patrick Geenty is the Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police. He has served in Wiltshire Police since July 2009, and has been temporary chief constable since March 2012

Geenty is under IPCC investigation for alleged mishandling of sexual abuse complaints. On 4 February 2015, Geenty announced his intention to retire in May. Five days later, on 9 February 2015, Geenty reversed this position and announced that he would remain in post until the IPCC investigation was completed. An IPCC spokesman expressed the view that Mr Geenty should not be allowed to retire until the investigation and any subsequent proceedings were completed. The Police Federation criticised the uncertainty and lack of leadership in the force, and called upon Mr Geenty to stand by his original announcement. [3]

He began his policing career as a police cadet aged 16 before joining Avon and Somerset Constabulary as a constable in 1984.

Mike spent his early service in various roles within uniform and CID before becoming Chief Inspector Operations within inner city Bristol and later serving as Detective Chief Inspector in Somerset.

In January 2005 Mike was promoted to Detective Superintendent and transferred to Wiltshire Police. In the same year he was promoted to Detective Chief Superintendent as Head of CID.

He then led a programme to amalgamate HQ CID with the Force operations department to create a Protective Services Command.

In 2009 Mike was appointed Temporary Assistant Chief Constable for ten months. He then took up the post of divisional commander for the county of Wiltshire before going on to complete the strategic command course in 2011.

In March 2013, Mike became Deputy Chief Constable. Since then he has been responsible for the Force’s transformation programme and integrating vital services with those of our council partners.

Mike took up post of Chief Constable on 1 June 2015.

I loved charities until I moved to Africa. Professional goodness is a front. A beard for c***s from Jimmy Savile to Kenneth Banya, a paeophile child kidnapper formerly Joseph Kony’s chief strategist, paid by the World Bank to look after the kids he’d kidnapped after they escaped from him. The charities knew; I’ve got a report from December 2005, Banya kept going until a local journalist nailed him. You cannot make it up.  Another charity, this time for Kenyan street kids, the Gilgil trust has seen it’s founder using the charity as a cover for his alleged child sex crimes [3].  I see these people all the time where I live in Africa.  Sleazy middle-aged white “saviours” who came for one thing – to bum kids.  The local bar had to put a sign up explaining what constituted paedophilia, there’s that much about.

It’s a front.

Harris had abused before. He admitted indecently assaulting three boys while working as a Latin teacher at the private Shebbear College in Devon in the late 1980s. But despite an investigation by the school and police, the boys’ families did not want to pursue criminal charges at the time.

Police believe Harris first travelled to Gilgil soon after, with the sole intention of continuing his interest in young boys.

His abuse might have stopped in 2009, when he was jailed in the UK for possessing indecent images of children. But a travel ban imposed on him was overturned by a court after Harris produced documents from agencies in Kenya saying they could manage his risk. Police believe those documents were forgeries.

He was stopped only by an unprecedented cross-border investigation, and a little-used law allowing British suspects to be tried in the UK for offences committed abroad.

Another rabbit hole…

The so-called Happy Valley set was a group of hedonistic, largely British and Anglo-Irish aristocrats and adventurers who settled in the “Happy Valley” region of the Wanjohi Valley,[1] near the Aberdare mountain range, in colonial Kenya and Uganda between the 1920s and the 1940s. In the 1930s, the group became infamous for its decadent lifestyles and exploits, following reports of drug use and sexual promiscuity.[2]

The area around Naivasha was one of the first to be settled in Kenya by white people and was one of the main hunting grounds of the ‘set’. [3] The colonial town of Nyeri, Kenya, to the east of the Aberdare Range, was the centre of Happy Valley settlers. [4]

A small cottage on the hotel grounds was the final home of Lord Baden-Powell and his wife, founder of the scouting movement, and he is buried outside Nyeri. The cottage has a small museum dedicated to Baden-Powell’s life and memory.[4]

Some of the notable members of the Happy Valley set were:

Others included Gilbert Colvile, Hugh Dickenson, Jack and Nina Soames, Lady June Carberry (stepmother of Juanita Carberry), Dickie Pembroke, and Julian Lezzard. Author Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen) was a friend of members of the group, and writer and pilot Beryl Markham frequently associated with the Happy Valley set.

The colonial lifestyle finally became untenable as the Mau Mau Uprising progressed during the 1950s.

In recent years, descendants of the Happy Valley set have been appearing in the news, particularly the legal troubles of Tom Cholmondeley, the great-grandson of Lord Delamere.




Bored, so called aristo’s – too much ££ and too much time on their hands – always in search of the next ‘diversion’ to engage their rotting souls.


They turn to the occult for some meaning for their lives – and the ensuing perverted behaviour blights the lives of 1000’s, if not millions of unconnected individuals.

History repeats itself over the millennia – until the rotten core eradicates itself. (which I feel is what is happening as we watch the domino’s fall [and that’s not a reference to Domino’s pizza – tho it could be….])

MI5 chiefs feared Hitler Youth members who met youngsters at a Colwyn Bay private school were secretly Nazi spies.

In 1937, two years before the second global war broke out, youngsters from the youth arm of Adolf Hitler’s poisonous regime swapped their black caps with pupils at the Rydal School in Colwyn Bay.

But declassified documents by MI5, the UK’s security service, released by the National Archives showed they were suspected of being infiltrators as they cycled their way across the country, receiving warm welcomes wherever they went.

At the time the Colwyn Bay and North Wales Weekly News reported one Rydal boy describing the visitors as “a jolly good crowd of chaps”.

It was also reported: “It is hoped a visit will be paid to Germany by Rydal boys next year.”

However documents showed intelligence chiefs had serious concerns about the Hitler Youth movement and whether it had sinister motives.

The Security Service became so concerned about the danger posed by “spyclists” it ordered police to report whenever a group of touring German cyclists arrived in the UK.

Sheffield police, noted several cameras were carried by a group of Berlin schoolboys and teachers who visited a power station and steelworks in the key industrial city.

In October 1944 a British intelligence assessment also warned the Hitler Youth could not be compared to Scouts or Girl Guides and instead embodied a deathly doctrine.

Later the Rydal school underwent a series of amalgamations to become Rydal Penrhos.

The papers also revealed Scout movement founder Lord Baden-Powell was invited to meet Adolf Hitler.

The scout leader Baden-Powell even held a friendly meeting with a leader of the Hitler Youth, at a time British security chiefs were investigating fears the groups were using their UK cycling holidays as a cover for espionage.

They showed Joachim von Ribbentrop, who was German ambassador to London at the time and became Hitler’s foreign minister the next year, invited Baden-Powell to tea on November 19, 1937.

Baden-Powell described von Ribbentrop as an earnest and charming man, noting he knew his uncle from his time in India.

Following World War II, famous ex-Rydal Penrhos pupils have included former Plaid Cymru leader Dafydd Wigley, actor William Roache – Coronation Street’s Ken Barlow – and film producer Duncan Kenworthy, who produced Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Baden Powell went on to become increasingly sympathetic to Hitler, writing in his diary of 1939: “Lay up all day. Read Mein Kampf.

“A wonderful book, with good ideas on education, health, propaganda, organisation etc.”

Details of the meeting held two years before the outbreak of the Second World War, come from a memo written by Baden Powell and included in the MI5 file.

In the document, released to the National Archives, Lord Baden Powell told the Scouts’ International Commissioner, Hubert Martin, that the Germans were “most anxious that the Scouts should come into closer touch with the youth movement in Germany.”

MI5 reports of the visit of Hartman Lauterbacher, Chief of Staff Hitler Youth, to Britain, showed that as well as meeting Baden Powell, he had also visited Eton College and the Army Gymnastic School at Aldershot, adding; “He seemed properly impressed by both these institutions.”

He visited Italy in 1933 and wrote admiringly about the “boy-man” Benito Mussolini who had absorbed his country’s Boy Scouts into a thriving new nationalist youth movement.

Statement in relation to the Sir Edward Heath investigation following the Henriques Review

Posted in News

“The Henriques review was commissioned to look in to the Metropolitan Police’s handling of Operation Midland and other investigations concerning persons of public prominence within the Metropolitan Police area. Accordingly the review was not focused on Operation Conifer.

“Wiltshire Police is the national lead in relation to Operation Conifer. The purpose of Operation Conifer is to investigate allegations of child abuse made against the former Prime Minister Sir Edward (Ted) Heath. In addition, the investigation aims to safeguard children and vulnerable adults who may be at risk of abuse today and, where relevant, bring living offenders to justice.

“The operation commenced in August 2015, following an IPCC press release naming Sir Edward Heath as a suspect in an investigation into non-recent child sex abuse.

“Operation Conifer is investigating a number of separate allegations made by persons who have come forward. Two arrests have taken place in relation to Operation Conifer and, at this time, both remain on police bail. Due to the fact that this remains a live investigation it would not be appropriate for us to comment any further at this stage.

“A panel of independent experts outside of policing are providing ongoing scrutiny of the investigation to ensure its proportionality and justification. Furthermore, in line with recognised best practice, Wiltshire Police recently commissioned Operation Hydrant to undertake an independent review of the investigation to ensure its ongoing proportionality and justification.

“Further to the release of the Henriques review Wiltshire Police, in conjunction with the College of Policing and the National Police Chiefs Council, will consider where relevant any national guidance and policy recommendations that may impact upon the ongoing Operation Conifer investigation.”

There’s no evidence against Ted Heath, SAYS ANN WIDDECOMBE

…will attract the usual crop of fantasists, revenge-seekers and money-chasers.

“I have been snapped with everyone from the innocent Basil Brush to Cynthia Payne (the madam) whom I met at a charity event and cold-blooded murderers whom I encountered on prison visits, where press and media were rightly present.”

Dominatrix Cynthia Payne came up to her and asked if she was “a friend of Dot”.

Thinking this was a reference to an obscure acquaintance, Ann replied “Of course,” to which Payne said enigmatically, “I thought you were.”

Ann had not realised that “a friend of Dorothy” was code for a lesbian. Later she makes clear that, despite some rumours from gay rights campaigners, she has never had lesbian instincts.

Her only serious romance, as she recounts, was with a male student at Oxford. As she argues convincingly there has been nothing remotely sad or lonely about her single existence.

European Community Youth Orchestra – that was Edward Heath’s province too


Heath made a special point of conducting orchestras involving young musicians. While still prime minister, he conducted the Academy of the BBC at the 50th anniversary concert in the series for children founded by Sir Robert Mayer. Later, it was through Heath’s help that the European Community Youth Orchestra was set up. He became its president, and conducted it on summer tours in 1978, 1979 and 1980.


Heath the musician: Rehearsing the 107 strong European Community Youth Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall

A vanished file and troubling claims about Heath and young musicians

The ensemble in question was the European Community Youth Orchestra, and it was about to embark on its inaugural tour of EEC capitals. It was to be a flagship for pan-European cultural co-operation.

The 135 musicians, some of whom were as young as 14, were drawn from the then nine member nations. Heath, an enthusiastic amateur musician who had led the United Kingdom into the European Community five years before, was the orchestra’s founding president. He would also be its guest conductor for that tour and several tours to come.

In an intriguing development, the Mail learned this week that a file relating to Sir Edward and the infamous Paedophile Information Exchange group is one of those missing from official Government records.

It is among 114 missing files concerning child abuse identified by an independent review of how allegations were handled by the Home Office.

The title of the missing document, ‘Edward Heath MP [redacted] RE: PIE’, refers to the activities of the Paedophile Information Exchange.

Investigators discovered that the file disappeared more than 25 years ago after being moved to a Westminster record centre. They concluded that there was no evidence of any orchestrated attempts by officials over three decades to cover up child abuse.

But the unexpected absence of the file raises questions about the exact nature of the connection between Heath and the PIE group.

Further new allegations of sexual abuse and possible official cover-up concerning Sir Edward have come to light. They centre on his relationship with the European Community Youth Orchestra.

A retired senior police officer, who served with several southern forces including Wiltshire, told the Mail that there were ‘always rumours’ about Heath, the former MP for Bexley.

The policeman — a widely respected officer with a distinguished career — asked that due to the sensitivities of the Heath investigations, he remain anonymous. He told us that the rumours did not come with any specific evidence against the former PM.

But he went on: ‘The exception were several allegations made against him in his role with the European Youth Orchestra. I understand there were credible claims that Heath indecently assaulted young people on tours to the Continent which he was leading.

‘These tours took place in the late 1970s or early 1980s.

‘It was never clear how old the victims were, or exactly what happened, and what was alleged was not at the top end of the scale of criminality.

‘Why these were never investigated I cannot say. I suspect it is because they took place overseas and the victims were from other countries.’

Ted Heath would have known Dara De Cogan through the European Community Youth Orchestra.

And Heath links to another Ampleforth paedophile – Piers Grant-Ferris – his father Lord Harvington was good friends with Heath and Thatcher.

Music professor at Ampleforth School in court on sex offence charges

A LEADING Roman Catholic school has been rocked by abuse allegations after a music professor appeared in court accused of sex offences against a girl more than 30 years his junior.

Irish-born classical musician and composer Dara De Cogan, 57, was appointed performing arts professor at Ampleforth College, North Yorkshire, in 2004.

The gifted violinist is charged with 12 counts of sexual activity with a child while in a position of trust.

The court heard the victim was a girl aged 16 and 17 at the time of the alleged offences between December 2007 and December 2009.

Dublin-born De Cogan, became leader of the Irish Youth Orchestra in 1978 and represented his country in the European Community Youth Orchestra.

In 1982, he joined the Hallé Orchestra and has played in folk music ensembles and has worked widely in the recording industry.

His court appearance came just weeks after it was confirmed Ampleforth is to be included in one of three public hearings carried out in the national child sexual abuse inquiry.


Monk ‘who ran sex club involving young boys’ at country’s top Catholic School ‘remained in his job for eight years after allegations were first made’

Apr 5 2017

  • Father Jeremy Sierla allegedly ran ‘sex club’ for boys at Ampleforth College
  • He remained at Catholic school for eight years after allegations first made
  • Police told he would make pupils perform sex acts in their pyjamas 
  • Investigation began in 2004 but no charges were ever brought against him 

Detectives spoke to more than a dozen young men who attended the school’s Junior House between 1990 and 1993 when Father Jeremy was housemaster.

Some recalled the monk whipping boys’ bottoms with his habit, encouraging the pupils to tie him up, showering naked with them and putting his hands under their duvets, the Times reported.

Photos and video clips – none indecent – of Ampleforth pupils were found on Father Jeremy’s computer, including one of a 12-year-old boy holding a rose in his mouth.

Father Sierla, 59, lived and worked at £30,000-a-year college, pictured, until 2012, despite accusations first being made against him eight years previously

The investigation was triggered when the same boy, in his early 20s by 2004, made allegations to police about abuse he claimed Father Jeremy had subjected him to.

The monk was not charged after prosecutors ruled there was insufficient evidence against him, and the CPS said the case file was destroyed years ago, the Times reported.

Father Jeremy continued to work in the abbey shop from 2004 to 2012 and posed for photographs to promote Ampleforth’s own brand Abbey Beer.

A music teacher, Dara de Cogan, who joined Ampleforth in 2004 was jailed last week for sexually abusing a female student during violin lessons.

An police investigation was launched into his conduct at the Yorkshire Catholic school, pictured, in 2004 but no charges were ever brought against him

A school spokesman said that Father Jeremy’s continued presence at Ampleforth was approved at a meeting of safeguarding professionals in 2004 and that his case was reviewed again in 2007 by an independent safeguarding commission.

It took a further five years before the Department for Education (DfE) told Ampleforth he should not be allowed on school grounds. 

TheDfE said that it was unable to discuss individual cases but stressed it was ‘paramount that children are protected at school and that there are robust safeguards in place’.

It added: ‘Where schools fail to meet standards, we will not hesitate to take action.’

‘Forty’ abusers at Catholic school

November 28 2017

Ampleforth Abbey in North Yorkshire is accused of being a “honeypot” for offenders

Ampleforth Abbey in North Yorkshire is accused of being a “honeypot” for offenders

Forty monks and teachers have been accused of sexually abusing boys at a leading Roman Catholic school that allegedly became a “honeypot” for offenders, it was revealed yesterday.

Reports of child sex offences at Ampleforth College in North Yorkshire were disclosed yesterday at a public hearing of an inquiry into the handling of abuse allegations by the Catholic church.

As a case study, the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse (IICSA) is examining safeguarding policies at two fee-paying boarding schools run by the English Benedictine Congregation — Ampleforth, and Downside in Somerset. Riel Karmy-Jones, QC, counsel to the inquiry, said that it would consider the prevalence of child abuse within the Catholic church and the extent to which Catholic culture “has or does inhibit the proper investigation and prevention” of such crimes.

Since 1996 three monks and two lay teachers at Ampleforth have been convicted of sex offences against pupils, but Ms Karmy-Jones said that the inquiry had been notified of multiple allegations against about 40 monks and teachers.

In an opening statement on behalf of 29 abuse survivors Richard Scorer, a specialist abuse lawyer at Slater and Gordon, the law firm, said that the “temptation to cover up” such crimes was “particularly acute in institutions associated with the Roman Catholic Church”. He said: “Where reputation is key to an organisation’s existence, there is likely to be an almost overwhelming desire to find some way of avoiding the bad publicity associated with child sex abuse.” Shared awareness among child abusers that their misconduct would be covered up, or dealt with in-house, explained why “some institutions become honeypots where multiple offenders operate”.

Mr Scorer urged the inquiry to consider recommending a change in the law to make failure to report abuse a criminal offence.

On behalf of 14 victims and survivors, David Enright said that it was “very difficult to explain” to a non-Catholic “the power and depth of influence the Catholic church exerts over its members. The abusers were not only men in positions of trust; they were seen by the abused, and their families, as spokesmen for the God they worship. It is hard to imagine a greater hold that a child abuser could have over his victim.”

Matthias Kelly, QC, counsel for Ampleforth, said that the school and the abbey wanted “to apologise for the hurt, injury, distress and damage done to those who were abused as a result of our failings”. He said that the school’s policy today was one of “full, transparent and immediate co-operation with the statutory agencies”.

For Downside and the English Benedictine Congregation, Kate Gallafent, QC, said that the Catholic church was committed to giving the inquiry “its full co-operation. The congregation expresses profound shame that any child has been the victim of sexual abuse whilst in the care of the schools connected with its abbeys.”

Ampleforth College

Piers Grant-Ferris/Heath /Ampleforth/Jersey

Piers Grant-FerrisHis secret past as a serial abuser of young boys at Ampleforth. He was an officer in the Irish Guards before becoming a novice monk in the Benedictine Order in 1955.
His late father, Lord harvington, the former Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons during Ted Heath’s Government and member of a prominent English Roman Catholic family – retired to Jersey

Life in Jersey revolved around hunting, golf, motor yachting, and farming. Lord Harvington was also a noted breeder of pedigree sheep and former president of the National Sheep Breeders Association. Edward Heath, Margaret Thatcher and her husband were among the guests on his yacht.

He served at Our Lady and St Michael’s Church in Workington, Cumbria, between 1978 and 1989, when he was chaplain to St Joseph’s RC School, before returning to Ampleforth Abbey where he was much sought-after to lead retreats.

Sir Robert Grant-Ferris, Baron Harvington (1907-1997)
Although he appeared to be fairly typical of the Conservative knights of the shire, a landowner and sheep breeder, who was noted for his passion for hunting and whose other principal recreation was yachting, Robert Grant-Ferris was a product of Douai rather than Eton, and he had the unusual distinction of owing his knighthood and later his Barony to the Labour Prime Minister, Harold Wilson. Although he remained a Conservative, he had come to be more a servant of the House of Commons than his party, and he spent his last four years in the House fittingly enough as Chairman of Ways and Means and Deputy Speaker. A man of considerable charm and great energy, he was well-liked in the House and thought of as a possible successor when Dr Horace King retired. However, Selwyn Lloyd was the preferred candidate of the Conservative Party.

Robert Grant Ferris was born on 30 December 1907, the son of a General Practitioner, Dr Robert Francis Ferris, but he seems to have been brought up by his widowed mother, Ellen (d.1955) at Falcon Hill, Cotteridge. Her sister had bought the property in 1892 and Mrs Ferris moved in with her. Robert could often be seen as a child riding his pony in the grounds. The family were strong Roman Catholics and Mrs Ferris seems to have bought Harvington Hall for the Birmingham diocese in 1923. Robert was educated at Douai, the independent school run by the Benedictine monks of Douai Abbey at Woolhampton. Early in life he hyphenated his name, adding an additional Grant to it. He made his early career in a firm of estate agents with whom his family had connections, but his eyes seem to have been firmly fixed elsewhere, on politics – he was elected to the Birmingham City Council in 1933 – and on flying. He joined 605 (County of Warwick) Auxiliary Air Force Squadron in 1933, and by the time the war came was a Flight Lieutenant. He began taking his bar examinations in 1932 and was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple in 1937.

He continued to live with his mother until 1930 when he married Florence Brennan de Vine, daughter of Major Brennan de Vine MC, who died in 1996. They had two children, a son, Piers, who became a monk and taught at Ampleforth, and a daughter, Sheila, with whom he later lived in Jersey. It was fortunate that neither parent lived to see their son identified and tried for the abuse of pupils in his care.

In the 1935 General Election he fought Wigan as a Conservative but lost heavily. Less than two years later, in February 1937, he fought St Pancras North in a by-election and won narrowly. Apart from his staunch support for General Franco in the Spanish Civil War. Grant-Ferris had little impact on the Commons in the late 30s, arguably because he was concentrating on becoming a front-line airman. By 1939 he commanded one of the flights in his squadron and in 1941 was promoted to Wing Commander. During the war he saw active service in France, Malta, Egypt and India.

Towards the end of the war he gave up active service for a return to more active participation in the House of Commons and became PPS to W.S.Morrison, the Minister of Town and Country Planning 1944-45. However, he was swept out of the Commons in the Labour landslide of 1945 by 7,630 votes and did not continue as the Conservative candidate for St Pancras North. Instead he concentrated on his farm and on his directorship of the publishing company, Burns, Oates and Washburne. He became deputy chairman on the Board of the Roman Catholic weekly, The Tablet, a role that he relinquished only in November 1997.

Although a by-election was called in St Pancras North in 1949, Grant-Ferris was not called upon to fight it, and his next attempt at Parliament was in Central Wandsworth, a seat that he failed to take in both the 1950 and 1951 General Elections.

Nantwich, which he won in the 1955 General Election gave him a safe berth until he chose to stand down just before the February 1974 election. In 1962 he became one of the panel of Chairman, who chair standing committees in the Commons. He was well known for his fairness and amiability, and there were many who thought that he would make an excellent Speaker. In 1970 he was appointed deputy Speaker and Chairman of Ways and Means. He had been knighted in 1969 and he was sworn of the Privy Council in 1971. Although not included in Heath’s dissolution honours, he was one of fifteen life peers nominated by Harold Wilson in the summer of 1974 and the only one with no Labour affiliation. He took his title from the house that his mother had given to the Archdiocese of Birmingham.

He always took a considerable interest in Britain’s inland waterways and was one of the Inland Waterways Association’s most influential allies in the House of Commons. He was elected a Vice-President in 1966 and was chairman of the original All-party Waterways Committee.

As privy chamberlain of the sword and cape to Pope Pius XII, Pope John XXIII and Paul VI, Grant-Ferris spent a week each year in attendance on the Pontiff. His strong opposition to abortion was thought to emanate from the Vatican rather than the Catholic hierarchy in this country. He became a Knight Grand Cross of Magistral Grace 1949 and of the Sovereign and Military Order of Malta in 1953.

He was the chairman of the Board of Management of the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth in St John’s Wood 1963-70.

Grant-Ferris was a notable breeder of sheep, serving as President of the Southdown Sheep Society of England on three occasions (1950-52, 1959-60, 1973) and presiding over the National Sheep Breeders of Britain 1956-58. He became a Vice President of the Smithfield Club in 1963 and President in 1970.

He was a man with many interests, keen on both hunting and golf, but his main passion was his motor yacht, the 43 ton Melita. He entertained both Edward Heath and the Thatchers aboard her but his plans for a summer cruise with the Thatchers around northern France a year before the couple entered Downing Street had to be cancelled when the French police said they could not guarantee the party’s security. He was a member of the Royal Yacht Squadron and of the Royal Thames Yacht Club, and for a time Honorary Admiral of the House of Commons Yacht Club. He was also a member of the Royal and Ancient at St Andrews, the MCC and, of course, the Carlton Club.

After his retirement from the House he lived abroad for tax reasons, initially in Malta and then in Jersey, although he would contribute to debates in the Lords when the taxman let him return. In 1980, he was one of those who rebelled over the school transport clauses of Mark Carlisle’s Education Bill, which would have imposed charges on the ‘free’ transport enjoyed by students at faith schools.

Top public school suspends child sex charges teacher

3 Mar 2017

THE head of music at a prestigious private school has been suspended following allegations he sexually assaulted a pupil three decades ago.

Sean Ambrose Farrell, 49, denied two charges of indecent assault and two charges of gross indecency when he appeared before York magistrates last week.

All four offences are alleged to have been committed against a child aged under 14 at the time at Ampleforth College’s junior school.

Farrell, of Riddings Road, Ilkley, was released on bail on condition that he has no unsupervised contact with children aged under 16.

He has been removed from his post at Wellington College, in Berkshire – which counts the late actor Sir Christopher Lee and Will Young among its alumni – several months ago after North Yorkshire Police launched an investigation.

A Wellington College spokesman said: “In line with our safeguarding procedures, Wellington suspended the member of staff concerned and excluded him from the school site as soon as it was made aware that the police were investigating these accusations.”

Its famous former pupils include Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes

His ex-wife applied for a gagging order to prevent his workplace and job being named when Farrell appeared at York Magistrates Court last week.

However, after it was challenged, the order was lifted, according to The Times

The charge comes after other teachers at Ampleforth College were accused of sexually assaulting pupils.

Music teacher Dara De Cogan, 58, was recently charged with 12 counts of sexual activity with a child while in a position of trust. The offences were said to have taken place between December 2007 and December 2009.

He pleaded guilty to 10 of the charges and not guilty to two of them. 

Cuthbert Madden, 61, the Abbot of Ampleforth College, stepped down from his duties in September last year after it was announced police were investigating claims of historical sexual abuse allegations against him, which were said to have taken place in the 1990s at the school.

He denied any wrongdoing and no further action was taken.

In December, the Charity Commission launched an inquiry into how the school has handled allegations of child sexual abuse.

Funny how Judge Seed can remember the Heath allegations and press interest but her defence council Matthew Scott can’t.

Ahhh, may explain his interest.
