Roecliffe Manor – Abuse by  Sir Jimmy Savile and Lord Greville Janner allegations

Probe: Savile and Roecliffe Manor home, Woodhouse Eaves Leicester

In February 2013, the Informant placed an advert in the Leicester Mercury, a local newspaper, asking if anyone was a survivor of the “Woodhouse Eaves Children’s Convalescent Homes” from the 1950s onwards.

According to the Police note of the interview with the Informant, this advert elicited 47 responses, although no detail was provided of what these responses were. According to the note, the Informant had also received a threatening telephone call from someone accusing him of stirring up trouble.
This is the information which was forwarded to the Trust to investigate in January 2014

The Trust is a partner agency of the Safeguarding Adults Boards and the Safeguarding Children’s Boards20 for Leicestershire and Rutland County Councils and Leicester City Council.

The first of these allegations,  that a child, who was resident at Roecliffe Manor, was seen by the Informant being dragged away by someone who he states was JS and a friend. He was later advised that the child had died, has been referred to the Police, given its serious nature.

The Lead Investigator notes that this information was passed to the MPS and Local Police force by her for it to undertake further investigations should it wish to given its extremely serious nature

Another allegation made by the Informant was  that children were abused at another children’s home in Melton Mowbray.

The Lead Investigator established that Roecliffe Manor had been owned by the Leicester and County Convalescent Homes Society from the time it opened in 1931 but had closed in 1969

The Informant would have been at Roecliffe Manor from 1959/1960 until 1966 – 1968. The Lead Investigator focused her investigation from 1959 until the late 1960s, therefore.

Leonard Cheshire Disability. This organisation bought the Roecliffe Manor building in 1972 from the Leicester and County Convalescent Homes Society.

The Children’s Society. The Lead Investigator established that The Children’s Society owned and ran another children’s home in the village of Woodhouse Eaves called Charnwood House.

An interviewee had advised the Lead Investigator that sometimes children from Charnwood House and Roecliffe Manor played together at fetes.

Leicestershire County Council (LCC). The Lead Investigator further established that the County Council undertook an investigation into Child Protection concerns in Children’s Homes in the Leicestershire area in the 1980s

The children who resided at Roecliffe Manor came mainly from the counties of Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

Archives also show a number of visitors to Roecliffe Manor. For example in the Matron’s Annual Report (1961) it states: “Sincere thanks to a host of friends for continuance of their personal interest in the welfare of the children; the film shows, concert parties; Guy Fawkes, night events and gifts of toys”.

The Informant recalls a man called “Jimmy” who would visit Roecliffe Manor on weekends –  this man would show a cine film at the home. He would bring a projector and they would watch films at Roecliffe Manor

The Informant refers to having to drink milk at night and states ‘I think it was drugged’. He recalls a hall, with dark lights, full of people. He also recalls that there were many cars outside. It seemed to him like an old style disco.

…had us cuddling him and kissing him” in front of everyone. He would also bring in books (history, Robin Hood and William Tell) music and other “stuff”. He recalls that “Jimmy” was like a PE Teacher as he was fit and would help out with fitness during his visits. The Informant thinks that “Jimmy” was on the hospital radio. He was at another hospital as well on the other side of Nottingham – Saxondale.

The Informant recalled that “Jimmy” also worked at Saxondale Hospital. Saxondale hospital has also investigated JS’s association with it.

“Jimmy” was normally at Roecliffe Manor by himself but he does recall on some occasions that he brought with him somebody with a Scottish Irish accent. This man came with “Jimmy” in his camper van.

During this interview, the Informant stated that he recalls 9 “experiences” with “Jimmy” which built up to the sexual abuse.

He could not recall how often “Jimmy” visited Roecliffe Manor but stated that it “seemed a lot”.

He recalls that “Jimmy” would take him out, along with a girl called April or Elizabeth, who was also a resident at Roecliffe Manor, for rides in his camper van. He recalls that “Jimmy” would take them to a motorway service station. The Informant stated “he would do things to us in the camper van and then he would give me money to go to the shop”

Jimmy” would then say that he wanted to meet the team and recalls that the “team” were Gary Glitter (a pop star), T-Rex and Slade (pop groups).

The motorway service station was their meeting point. The Informant recalls that he was given concert tickets for these acts, although did not specify which ones in particular. The Informant also recalls “Jimmy” taking the Informant, and April/Elizabeth to a “rock” or a large stone for a picnic.

Rock/Large Stone near Woodhouse Eaves
The Lead Investigator has found that there is a place called the Hanging Stones in Charnwood Forest, on the edge of Woodhouse Eaves. It is likely, therefore, that the Informant is referring to these stones when he states he was taken to a big stone by “Jimmy”.

During this interview the Informant shared further details about his recollections of “Jimmy”. He stated that “Jimmy” would take him, and a girl called April (who after a while stopped coming), out in his campervan to “somewhere near” the service station where he would see T-Rex, Slade and Gary Glitter.

The Informant was given half a crown by “Jimmy” so that he could go to get something to eat. He did not know what the groups discussed, therefore. He also recalls being taken to a rock or a big stone by “Jimmy” and also took him and April to another hospital which had a Viking’s name (which he thought was Saxondale (see further discussion below).

JS began working as a DJ at Radio Luxembourg in London in 1958 until 1967 and on Tyne Tees Television in 1960. The Lead Investigator established that JS presented Radio Luxembourg broadcasts on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from a studio in London. However, one comment found on the Radio Luxembourg website suggested that some broadcasts may have been pre –recorded so would not preclude JS from having the opportunity of going to Roecliffe Manor on a weekend. The Informant stated that “Jimmy” worked in radio and visited on weekends. In 1964 JS presented the first edition of Top of the Pops and from 1968 worked on BBC Radio17.

He recalls that “Jimmy” would visit the home about 3 weekends every month. He does not recall “Jimmy” being there during the week. He believes that “Jimmy” could come and go as he pleased on weekends as there were many parents and visitors around at that time. Nobody knew who he was.

Witness accounts describe Roecliffe Manor as a strict, almost cruel, place in which children were controlled and punished frequently. A former resident described to the Lead Investigator in an email ‘it was a terrible place, the abuse I received has left an imprint on my mind, but sadly we can’t do anything about it. I have met other people who were there as children and all hated the place too’.

“Jimmy” would bring films with him to Roecliffe Manor when he visited, films about Billy Smart’s Circus, the history of kings and queens including Richard III. He recalls that nurses were sometimes present at the film showing.
A further recollection by the Informant was that “Jimmy” would be in the “little park” in the grounds of Roecliffe Manor making sure that the swings were working. He recalls that an older man would help him who he recalls looked similar to “Jimmy”.

He reiterated again that the service station was a regular meeting spot for the pop band Slade and T-Rex and for pop star Gary Glitter. He stated that years later he heard of other people going to the motorway station to catch a glimpse of them.

The Lead Investigator did find that the Blue Boar Services, Watford Gap service station was a popular destination in the 1960s as a meeting point for Pop bands.

An internet search discovered that bands such as The Who and T-Rex would meet there. “There were established stop off points on your way home one of these was the famous Blue Boar Cafe (Watford Gap) frequented by all the bands and roadies of that time being about half way back to London from the north, you would run into people like Marc Bolan (T-Rex) in the toilet next to you’. The Informant recalls that there was always an energetic musical atmosphere at the station that he recalls being taken to and so this may have been the one he is referring to.

Contact was also made by the Lead Investigator with Road Chef, the current owners of Blue Boar Services at Watford Gap. Road Chef hold an autograph book which is believed to have been used by a former Blue Boar employee at Watford Gap Services during the 1960s and 1970s. The Lead Investigator was provided with a copy of an undated autograph from this autograph book, purported to be JS’s

During the 3rd interview, the Lead Investigator showed the Informant photographs of JS in the late 1950s. The Informant’s immediate response was to confirm that the person in the photograph was the individual who he knew and recalled as “Jimmy”. The Lead Investigator noted a very strong reaction by the Informant to the photographs and noted that he was adamant that the photographs were of “Jimmy”. In a follow up discussion with the Informant on 7 April 2014 (the purpose of which was to maintain contact with the Informant to ensure that he felt supported), he reiterated his firm belief that the photograph he had been shown by the Lead Investigator of JS was a photograph of “Jimmy”.

The Informant remembers that later in 1965 (after leaving Roecliffe Manor) he saw JS on the BBC show, Top of the Pops and recognised him as “Jimmy”. He also recalls seeing JS doing a gig in a school in Market Harborough in 1970 or 1971. At this time, he wanted to confront JS about the abuse but was prevented from speaking to JS by other people who were in JS’ entourage.

The Lead Investigator concluded following her interviews with the Informant that he was a sincere and honest individual.

The Leicester and County Convalescent Homes Report (1957- 1963) state mention visitors and gifts from the Loughborough branch of TOC H and the social committee of the Swithland Camp.

The Lead Investigator did find the name of a Trustee who, according to minutes of meetings from Roecliffe Manor, was a frequent visitor to Roeclifee Manor in the 1960s and showed cinefilm and took gifts to children there. However, this line of inquiry could be taken no further as the individual has since passed away.

Famous faces: Keith Richards is pictured in the 1960s at Watford Gap Services

Watford Gap:

…staging a play paying homage to the many travelling musicians from The Beatles and Dusty Springfield to The Rolling Stones, who have used it as a roadside watering hole.

Previously called the Blue Boar, the services became so talked about among stars that Jimi Hendrix mistook it for a London nightclub.

Autographs collected from pop stars who visited Watford Gap services to go on display

A book of autographs collected from famous musicians who visited the M1 service station during the 1960s and 70s is going on display.

RoadChef, the Watford Gap services operator, paid £1,000 for the collection of celebrity signatures, which were collected by a former employee, at an auction on Wednesday.

The book includes the signatures of Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, The Eagles, Dusty Springfield and Sir Cliff Richard.

They were collected by the late Beatrice England, who worked the night shift at what was then called Blue Boar service station.

60s legends who called at the M1’s Blue Boar

IF you wanted to spot a pop band in the Sixties, the Blue Boar motorway cafe on the M1 near Rugby was the place to be.

The likes of the young Rolling Stones and The Who making their way to London after a gig would often drop in to the Boar for a fry-up and a mug of coffee.

It was the perfect spot between ‘oop North’ and ‘The Smoke’ for the friendly rivals to swap banter before taking the last lap home in their dormobile vans.

It was first established by local Rugby resident Lyndon Smith, who owned the Blue Boar filling station and garage just around the corner from the present station.

The name Blue Boar came from the lake that was situated behind the first Blue Boar filling station in Dunchurch.

The local legend said that a blue boar lived on the lake in the time of Robin Hood.

Other famous diners there have included The Beatles, Dusty Springfield and James Brown.

Blue Boar Ltd. sold the Watford Gap site to Roadchef in 1999, who operate the site today.

In 1977 an artist called Roy Harper released an album called ‘Bullinamingvase‘ which originally included the song ‘Watford Gap’ with its lyric ‘Watford Gap, Watford Gap, a plate of grease and a load of c**p’. Later versions of the album did not feature the song as a member of the EMI board was also a member of the Watford Gap’s board of directors.

Roecliffe Manor – Abuse by  Sir Jimmy Savile and allegations

The allegations Savile was involved in the death of a child came from a witness who said he saw the TV presenter and a friend with the girl at Roecliffe Manor children’s home in Leicestershire during the 60s.

A report published by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust said: “The Informant stated that he witnessed a girl, who he believes was called April or Elizabeth, being dragged across the garden at Roecliffe Manor by ‘Jimmy’ and another man.

“She appeared to be in a stupor. The next day the informant was told by the matron that this girl had died.”

The paper concludes it could not corroborate the claim and said it had found “no reference to the death of a child at Roecliffe Manor”.

But Leicestershire Police confirmed it is probing the claims. A spokesman said: “We have received the report on Roecliffe Manor and started an investigation to determine if abuse took place and if so to what extent.”

The home was shut shortly after the alleged incident.

LEICESTERSHIRE Police are appealing for anyone who may have been sexually abused at a former children’s convalescent home, to come forward..

A claim of abuse, which has been linked to Jimmy Savile, has already been made.

The appeal is part of an on-going investigation being conducted by detectives into Roecliffe Manor, in Woodhouse Eaves, during the 1950s and 1960s.

As well as wanting to trace anyone who was sexually abused whilst at the home, they also want to hear from anyone who may have witnessed abuse taking place or who has information about sexual abuse at the premises.

Detective Superintendent David Sandall, who is leading the investigation, said: “We know that a large number of children stayed at the convalescent home for short periods of time during the 50s and 60s and we have already spoken to a number of them. …

Cops probe claim Jimmy Savile KILLED abuse victim in 1960s

Updated: 6th April 2016,

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has today issued a grovelling apology on behalf of the NHS for allowing “wicked” Savile to prey on hundreds of patients aged five to 75.

One of the institutions was Roecliffe Manor children’s convalescent home in Woodhouse Eaves, Leics, which closed shortly after the alleged death of the little girl.

A former resident of the home came forward to say he had been abused by the DJ as a young boy, when he was recovering from tuberculosis between the ages of four and nine.

He said he and a little girl were regularly taken out in a camper van by a man called Jimmy and a second man with a Scottish or Irish accent, and they would stop for picnics at service stations.

The witness – who first approached Operation Yewtree cops – told the NHS investigators he was abused by Savile on at least four occasions.

He also claims he saw the other child being “dragged away” by the
pervert, and he never saw her again.

Roecliffe Manor

The report published today says: “The informant stated that he witnessed a girl, who he believes was called April or Elizabeth, being dragged across the garden at Roecliffe Manor by ‘Jimmy’ and another man. She appeared to be in a stupor.

The next day the Informant was told by the Matron that this girl had died.”

Report author Sue Walters concluded sexual abuse is “likely to have taken place” at the home, but added: “It has not been possible to associate Jimmy Savile with the abuse”.

She found no other record that Savile had ever visited the home, and “no reference to the death of a child at Roecliffe Manor”.

However, she said the investigation was difficult because the events took place so long ago.

She also said the victim came across as “a sincere and honest individual” and gave a “consistent account of his memories of his time at Roecliffe”.

Ms Walters said she had passed his complaint to police for further
investigation.

Leicestershire Police said its investigation into the alleged abuse was ongoing, and urged anyone with information to contact them.

Sue Walters is an experienced consultant and has a long history of working with Children’s Services in a variety of roles, from frontline as a Health Visitor to Director Level. She has experience of working to develop Integrated Adult and Children’s Safeguarding services and policies. She previously set up and managed a national project working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse (The Surviving Homeless Project in Nottingham).


Roecliffe Manor/ Jimmy Savile Investigation

In January 2015, we were passed information by the Department of Health to investigate regarding an allegation that Jimmy Savile had sexually abused a child at Roecliffe Manor Children’s Convalescent Home in Woodhouse Eaves.

We employed the services of an independent external investigator, Sue Walters, to look into claims dating back to the late 1950’s/early 1960’s.  During that investigation, Ms Walters identified that it was not us, but local charity ARC Leicester who are the legacy organisation, so we collaborated with them throughout the remainder of the investigation.  We have thoroughly investigated all of the evidence we were given, and the final report was recently submitted to the Department of Health.

The investigation has concluded that sexual abuse of children residing at Roecliffe Manor is likely to have taken place, although the extent of such abuse is unknown.  Despite this finding, it has not been possible to corroborate evidence to conclude that Jimmy Savile was responsible for carrying out any sexual abuse on children at Roecliffe Manor, or that he ever visited Roecliffe Manor.  We have passed all of our relevant investigation materials over to Leicestershire Police.

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

By chance, Clive Williams, headmaster of Ashdown House, the Sussex prep-school which Boris and three of his siblings (Rachel, Leo and Jo) attended, telephoned me as I sat down to write this article to congratulate me on becoming First Father.

‘What about this charge, Clive,’ I asked, ‘that Boris doesn’t pay attention to detail?’

‘Codswallop!’ Clive replied. ‘You can’t write Greek and Latin prose as well as Boris did without having a supreme ability to master detail. If you’re going to get it right, you have to be meticulous.’

 Martin Haigh – Ashdown teacher

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

24 Mar, 2017

Martin Haigh

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


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

Boris Johnson

Jo Johnson

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Daily Telegraph

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

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

14 March 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

Martin Haigh, 67, of Lavender Street, Brighton, is accused of five counts of indecent assault and six of gross indecency, all between 1972 and 1978.

The British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) closed last week and is being run by administrators.

Much of its work in England will go to the Coram Group and in Scotland to St Andrew’s Children’s Society.

The British Association of Social Workers called the collapse “surprising…. given the extra cash pumped by government into adoption”.

In a statement BAAF chief executive Caroline Selkirk said “significant changes and prevailing economic conditions” meant it had “sadly not been possible to sustain the organisation”.

The National Adoption Register for England is now run by First4Adoption (jointly run by Coram and Adoption UK).[8][9]

Coram also provides sheltered housing and support for care leavers.

One man’s opinion of Coram CCLC:

There can be few more depressing sights than a charity proclaiming to act on behalf of children, whilst doing it’s damndest to deprive them of their most basic of human rights – their right to a father.
 
That’s been the role of Coram Children’s Legal Centre (CCLC), an organisation, supported by Cherie Blair, that appears to have perverted the noble intentions of it’s namesake, philanthropic sea captain, Thomas Coram. In 1741 he established the Foundling Hospital for the ‘education and maintenance of exposed and deserted young children’.

Little could he have known that 270 years later, the UK’s first children’s charity, one that bears his name, would be actively denying millions of British children their human rights to a father.
 
The disgracefully named ‘Shared Parenting Consortium’ is led by the CCLC and includes the NSPCC. It is not, as one is led to believe by its title, a consortium supporting shared parenting. In fact, it actively opposes shared parenting.

It’s like Jimmy Saville setting up a consortium supporting abuse victims. Hopefully one day, these people will be exposed in exactly the way and held to account for their actions.

But this isn’t the only deceit used by the CCLC. You might think – as some have – that the ‘Parental involvement’ law championed by these organisations was some sort of victory for dads.
 
Nothing could be further from the truth. It’s a scam. These people openly oppose shared parenting and get you, the taxpayer, to fund them to take your children from you.
 
Don’t forget, this includes the NSPCC who have opposed equality and shared parenting and refused repeated calls from Fathers4Justice to investigate the abuse of children in secret family courts. This despite being presented with reams of evidence. Talk about turning a blind eye.

These organisations then use the wholly discredited ‘90% of cases are settled out of court’ quote which is based on a decade old sample of less than 1,000 people. If everything is so rosy, why are there 4 million children living without their fathers this Christmas?

Thomas Coram must be so proud.

Jonathan King provoked outrage by claiming Jimmy Savile was not a ‘serial rapist’, despite hundreds of complaints of abuse by the disgraced presenter. 

Jonathan King claims he has never met Matthew Kelly, but we know for a fact Savile did.

Boy George and Matthew Kelly

Matthew Kelly a friend of Rolf Harris ? Daily Star 17-01-03

The Stars In Their Eyes presenter, Matthew Kelly, was arrested and bailed by Surrey Police  over allegations of sexual abuse on boys under the age of 16 during the 1970s.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/1419345/Police-raid-Kellys-Sri-Lankan-holiday-home.html

was a friend /acquaintance of Jonathan King too, no?

Officers in Sri Lanka raided a holiday home that Matthew Kelly  rents in Colombo and took away a computer and videos.

As part of the same inquiry, police detained Tam Paton, former manager of the 1970s pop group Bay City Rollers, and Steve Jolley, a music tycoon. They are expected to answer bail on March 12.

The allegations against Kelly arose from Operation Arundel, which centred on the involvement of Jonathan King, the pop mogul, with a 1970s disco called The Hop, in Walton-on-Thames.

King was jailed for seven years in 2001 for offences against boys.

Ronnie Kray killed a “rent boy”

https://youtu.be/Y9RVpxLFW7A

Gangster Ronnie Kray and top politician Lord Boothby in 1963.

Lord Boothby was close to all the top people from Churchill to Tom Driberg

“The Krays had property at Bildeston where they were involved with local youth clubs and giving children donkey rides etc.”

Record producer Joe Meek

“Joe (Meek) signed Tom (Jones) when he arrived in London, but he tried kissing him behind the studio screens and that was that,”

Jimmy Savile on Top of the Pops with Alan Freeman (right)

Apparently Kray had access to many London care homes and would have boys delivered to parties at DJ Alan ” fluff” Freeman’s large flat over a music shop in East London.

Man tells of agony at the hands of BBC paedo ring involving DJ Alan Freeman and evil pal Jimmy Savile

The traumatised victim claims he was just 11 when German film actor Victor Beaumont lured him to his plush London flat where the BBC stars raped him

“There they would meet with show biz types and DJs including Jimmy Savile, JOE MEEK and on occasion Beatles manager Brian Epstein.”

According to this source – Archives – the Krays ran a paedophile ring.http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/features/hard_men_with_a_soft_spot_for_suffolk_1_188508

2 November 2012

Jimmy Savile, Edward Heath and the Kray twins

A 1977 prison report said: ‘Ronald Kray remains an active and predatory homosexual, and cares little who knows it.’ Another report describes how Kray was found in bed with another inmate.

Reportedly, prison officers usually turned a blind eye to Kray’s affairs. Reggie Kray’s twin brother was Ronnie Kray, who was also a gangster and lover of boys.

The twins had huge property interests in East Anglia. Kray had access to many London care homes and would have boys delivered to parties at DJ Alan ” fluff” Freeman’s large flat over a music shop in East London. There they would meet with show biz types and DJs including Jimmy Saville, Joe Meeks and on occasion Beatles manager Brian Epstein. The eastern crime squad knew about the Kray gangsters and the sex parties known as ” Pink ballets ” with young lads but let them continue

At these parties , young boys , specially brought over from several childrens homes would be plied with drugs and alcohol.

However these parties were forced to come to an end when Police chiefs got wind that the MP & Ex Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe was attending them along with several other prominent MP’s…

At a big London railway station in the spring of 1970, a plastic carrier bag was found in the regular search for bombs before the station closed for the night.  “The contents were an odd assortment of letters and photos, which seemed to have been taken at a kinky party attended by some well-known figures in entertainment.
“One in particular showed a pop singer who masquerades under a Christian persona; dressed in women’s underwear he was pictured with young boys. (I will leave it to you, just who that famous pop singer could have been !)
“The bag was duly taken to the station office and, as a senior rail worker wrote out a report for the lost property office, two MI5 men and a special branch officer arrived and demanded the photos.”  Like the Dickens report and other evidence of VIP child abuse it has been buried.
Boothby was a promiscuous bisexual, in a time when male homosexual activity was a criminal offence. While an undergraduate at Magdalen College, Oxford, Boothby earned the nickname “the Palladium”, because “he was twice nightly”. He later spoke about the role of a speculated homosexual relationship in the drowning of his friend Michael Llewelyn Davies (one of the models for Peter Pan) and fellow Oxonian Rupert Buxton. He did not start to have physical relationships with women until the age of 25.      From 1954 Boothby  campaigned publicly for homosexual law reform.

Lord Boothby, who incidentally was  very close to Winston Churchill, liked masochistic sex with rent boys and would often be known to use the Krays for the procurement of young boys
It all started in  1963 when Boothby began an illicit affair with East End cat burglar Leslie Holt (d. 1979). Holt was  a younger man Boothby met at a gambling club. Holt introduced him to the gangster Ronald Kray, the younger Kray twin, Ronald supplied Boothby with teenage boys and arranged orgies in Cedra Court.  The boys were told to behave or else. And they certainly knew what else meant !
The Krays also came into the public eye when an exposé in the tabloid newspaper Sunday Mirror  began to expose a sexual relationship between a  gangster    and a UK Conservative Party politician.   Although names had not been published the Kray twins threatened the journalists involved in the story, whilst  Boothby threatened to sue. The newspaper backed down under pressure, sacked its editor, printed an apology and paid Boothby £40,000 in an out-of-court settlement. As a result, other newspapers were unwilling to uncover the Krays’ connections, criminal and sexual activities. Consequently young boys continued to be supplied from children’s homes to be sexually exploited  for the gratification  of  gangsters and corrupt politicians.  All this wilt the  blessing of the Police and Parliament.  Decades later nothing changed.

Ronnie once said to a boy: “You will go home with Lord Boothby. You will do exactly what Lord Boothby wants. Or I will hurt you”
Kray biographer, John Pearson, writing in the Independent on Sunday, also claims that the Peer and the MP engaged in gay sex orgies with children and that Boothby had a fondness for boys defacating on him, and the Krays had a compromising photograph of Boothby and his memiors.
Similarly, when Tom Driberg, a Labour MP and KGB agent who wore fishnet stockings, got involved with the Krays, telling them ‘about the houses of rich friends they could burgle,’ again the government suppressed any inquiry, as they didn’t want to have to cope with the damaging revelations.
The media were further intimidated and silenced when Boothby and Driberg used the Krays ‘to turn anyone over who had crossed them’. The Police protected the Krays and children  continued to be supplied  and abused.
On notepaper carrying his address in Eaton Square, Belgravia, Lord Boothby wrote to Kray on June 6, 1963: ”Thank you for your postcard. I very nearly went to Jersey myself, as I have never been there, and hear from so many people that it is quite delightful.”

Jonathan King & Margaret Thatcher (1990)

 

Pop mogul Jonathan King, 72, is charged with 18 sex offences from the 1970s and 80s

  • King famed for songs like Everyone’s Gone to the Moon and Hooked on a Feeling
  • He appeared many times on television including shows like Entertainment USA
  • King was bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday
May 25 2017

 

Pop mogul and record producer Jonathan King was today charged with 18 historical sex offences against nine alleged victims.

King was famed for songs including Everyone’s Gone to the Moon and Hooked on a Feeling and discovered the band Genesis as a music producer.

He appeared many times on television on both sides of the Atlantic including on shows like Top of the Pops and Entertainment USA.

Surrey Police announced he was charged with offences which allegedly took place between 1970 and 1986.

King, aged 72 years, was bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday, June 26, to answer the charges which were uncovered as part of ‘Operation Ravine’.

A Surrey Police spokesman said: ‘Operation Ravine was established in early 2015 following a review by Merseyside Police into the Surrey Police investigation entitled Operation Arundel which launched in 2000.

‘The independent review was commissioned in January 2014 to ensure all lines of inquiry had been identified.

‘A number of actions have subsequently been progressed under Operation Ravine leading to new allegations of sexual offences being identified.’

Jonathan-King-007

Jonathan King has been desperately attempting to suggest that he has been the victim of false allegations similar to those that have been circulating in the press recently even going as far as coming to Edward Heath’s defence as a character witness in The Spectator (Yeh, right!). This Sunday he wrote:

We see these pathetic stories crumbling, started by mentally unstable characters in a fantasy world wanting attention, sympathy, believing their own stories (reminds me of the man who started my witch hunt, who, it transpires, made money as a teenager telling people his mother was dying of cancer and forcing her to call the donors to deny the tale and apologise)

– carried by media sources desperate for “great stories” (like the wonderful Exaro) – picked up by millions as a “great story” – forcing under funded police forces to spend millions on investigating stupid tales that, a few years ago, would have been dropped in seconds – stirred up by media howls (“Savile WAS a pervert – ignored for years”) expanding unproveable stories and encouraging further mad tales by unhinged “victims”.

King of Shits

It only serves to highlight the dangers of false allegations in the media when they can be used by a man like King to muddy the waters but it seems that he’s not fooling the police – and he certainly doesn’t fool me.

It has been plausibly suggested (though unconfirmed) that the other men arrested with Jonathan King are Deniz Corday (86) who started the Walton Hop Teen disco in 1958 and former Hop DJ Robert Randall (77)

The former music industry figure Jonathan King has been arrested on suspicion of historical child sex offences, the BBC understands.

Mr King, 70, was arrested at his home in Bayswater, west London, by Surrey Police officers on Wednesday morning.

Two other men, aged 77 and 86, both from Walton-on-Thames, were also arrested and are being questioned.

The arrests were made in connection with allegations linked to the Walton Hop Disco in Walton-on-Thames.

An ongoing investigation, titled Operation Ravine, is looking into allegations of sexual offences against children connected with the disco in the 1970s and 1980s.

Surrey Police said specialist police officers were searching the men’s properties.

Truthseeker1‏ @thewakeupcall09:

Wonder if Jonathan King knows who the former manager of several top bands that has money in a boy brothel in Thailand ?

Who where Jonathan King’s band manager friends besides Simon Cowell ?


THE SICKENING SHOWBIZ WEB OF SEX FIENDS.

KING was just one of an underground network of showbiz paedophiles involved in sex abuse and child porn.

The evil DJs, songwriters, rock stars and boy band managers hid their twisted sex lives for years.

Some of those who shared King’s sordid lust have been nailed. But others are still getting away with it.

King, 56, was brought to book following a lengthy police probe into a tip that British perverts were operating in the Czech capital Prague.

Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning, 59, a friend of King’s since the 70s, was jailed for four and a half years by a court in Prague last year on ten charges of sexually abusing young boys.

King’s name was mentioned by one of his victims. Denning was in the original Radio 1 line up in l967 and worked with King as a record producer.

Denning, of Bracknell, Berks, has convictions in Britain dating back 30 years for sex assault, gross indecency and child porn.

During visits to Prague seeking victims Denning befriended Britain’s most wanted paedophile Warwick Spinks.

Spinks, 35, was jailed for seven years in 1995 after drugging a 14-year-old boy and selling him to a gay brothel in Amsterdam. He served 30 months then fled the country while on parole.

Another ex-pal of King, songwriter and record producer Steven Jolley, was jailed for 18 months last month for indecently assaulting a 12-year-old boy.

Millionaire Jolley, who wrote and produced 1980s chart hits for Spandau Ballet, Bananarama, Diana Ross and Kim Wilde, was arrested at his mansion near Brentwood, Essex.

The raid was part of a probe into paedophile package tours to Prague organised by vile Spinks in which boys as young as ten were abused.

Jolley, 50, kept a collection of child abuse videos he had shot himself.

Sick photos and images of children are regularly exchanged among perverts, using encrypted internet websites.

That was the downfall of another former friend of Jonathan King last year. Rocker Gary Glitter, 57, was jailed for four months for having 4,000 child porn pictures on his computer.

King and Chris Denning helped Glitter launch his career. They also helped launch 70s band the Bay City Rollers.

King produced the group’s first hit Keep on Dancing in 1971 and became pals with their former manager Tam Paton and drummer Derek Longmuir.

Paton, 61, was jailed for three years in 1982 for sex with underage boys.

Longmuir, 49, was convicted last year of having indecent photos, videos and computer discs of young boys and given 300 hours’ community service.

Scotland Yard’s Paedophile Unit is trying to build cases against other celebrity cronies of King.

One is a well-known former Top of the Pops DJ who visits India in search of vulnerable youngsters.

Another is a wealthy former manager of several top bands. He has money in a boy brothel in Thailand.

Former music producer Jonathan King has appeared in court accused of a string of sex attacks on teenage boys.

The ex-singer is accused of assaulting boys aged 14 to 16 between 1970 and 1986 in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.

Mr King, 72, of Bayswater, west London, appeared at Southwark Crown Court for the hearing under his real name of Kenneth George King.

The Genesis producer was released on conditional bail until 22 January.

The allegations are linked to the Walton Hop Disco in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, and Mr King, who also produced songs for 10cc and the Bay City Rollers, must not contact any prosecution witnesses.

King’s trial date was set for 11 June 2018.

Daniel Janner applies to join the  Coningsby Club

17 Aug 1986

Past speakers have included Chancellor George Osborne, Education Secretary Nicky Morgan and Defense Secretary Michael Fallon, as well as ex-PM John Major.

The secretive club was founded in 1921. Rab Butler, who was president for many years, suggested the Conservative Party should look to the club to “provide a good part of our future political elite, if I may still venture to use such a word in the so-called Century of the Common Man”. After retiring from politics, Butler became Master of Trinity College.

The website for the exclusive dining society says that “nearly every nationally known Oxford and Cambridge Conservative politician went on to the Coningsby Club after OUCA or CUCA so you will be in good company”, but that membership was “by invitation only”.

What does Prince Charles have in common with Jonathan King? 

Both were very good friends with serial paedophile and necrophiliac, Jimmy Savile

Jonathan King with Jimmy Savile and King’s brother Andy and two patients at Stoke Mandeville spinal hospital in January 1986.

King’s longtime chum Jimmy Savile, the barmy-looking blond who hosted the essential British tv music show Top of the Pops for what seemed forever, probably came closer to the true essence of the man when he once remarked, “He’s a sabra. A sabra is an Israeli fruit that’s prickly on the outside and all soft and lovely inside. That’s Jonathan King.”

Jailed Jonathan King claims he has Prince Charles’ support after ‘stock reply’ from aide

PERVERT Jonathan King has infuriated Prince Charles by conning his staff into writing to him in jail.

The Prince has ordered an inquiry into how his office sent a letter to the disgraced former music mogul and TV presenter which King is now attempting to use as bizarre ammunition in his campaign to have his child sex conviction overturned.

Jailed King is showing off the letter, complete with its royal crest, to fellow inmates and claiming he has the support of the highest quarters of the land.

Last night, a royal source said it was the SECOND time the sex offender has tried to fool Prince Charles’ staff into supporting him and insisted he should never have received a reply.

A royal aide said: “Prince Charles is very upset that he could be used like this, especially when it was known this person King had tried it before.

“It’s horrifying to think that this evil man is waving Prince Charles’ royal notepaper around the jail claiming he has royal backing for his cause.”

The one-time pop singer, 58, serving seven years for offences against schoolboys lured by his celebrity status, wrote to the Prince from Maidstone Prison, in Kent.

On an Internet website he runs from prison, he boasted: “Re: Letter to Prince Charles, I have received a very nice and supportive letter from Prince Charles in response to this post, which must remain personal as you can understand but which was much appreciated. JK.”

In his letter, King refers to former valet George Smith, who claimed to have been raped by a member of Prince Charles’s staff, and warns Charles: “Three or four false allegations of rape…you could be ruined and the monarchy destroyed.

“It will never happen, hopefully, because the police would be on your side but, when they are not, when the quest for raised conviction rates overwhelms the desire for justice, men and women are wrongfully convicted.”

King has never shown regret for his crimes and failed to mention in his letter that he was being targeted by inmates sickened because he is a “nonce”, notorious prison slang for paedophile.

Many jailed paedophiles in King’s position apply for solitary confinement in order to escape attacks from disgusted fellow inmates.

The governor at Maidstone Prison has ordered his own inquiry into King’s use of the Internet after a crisis meeting.

Last night, a St James’ Palace source said: “The Prince of Wales’s office received a letter from Jonathan King and he, in turn, was sent a standard two-line reply acknowledging receipt of the correspondence.

“It basically contained the message: ‘Thank you very much for writing, yours sincerely.’ He didn’t get a letter from the Prince himself and the Prince was not even aware of the letter being sent.“

King is now trying to use this acknowledgement of correspondence to claim he has Prince Charles’ support, which is simply ludicrous.”

King has taken his fight against sex abuse convictions to Strasbourg and the European Court of Human Rights.

He was found guilty in September 2001 of four indecent assaults against boys aged 14 to 15 in the 1980s.

King, the self-styled King of Hits, has always maintained his innocence and complained about the justice system.

In January, he failed in a bid to have his conviction overturned at the Court of Appeal in London. He has also asked the Criminal Cases Review Commission to examine his case.

King had his first hit with Everyone’s Gone To The Moon in 1965 and was involved with discovering new talent for Decca Records in the 1960s. He also produced records for Genesis, played a big role in promoting supergroup 10cc and is credited with a similar function for the Bay City Rollers.

He was fronting the TV show Entertainment USA and running his UK Records label at the time of his offences.

At his trial, the Old Bailey heard how the he lured the boys to his fashionable mews home at Queensborough Studios in Bayswater, central London, and showed them pornography before assaulting them.

A second trial based on allegations that he committed serious sexual offences against two boys in the seventies collapsed.

29 March, 2005

Clarence House also issued a statement dismissing King’s claims that Prince Charles sent him a letter of support.

A spokesman said King wrote to Charles several years ago and a reply was issued from the office, but not from the Prince.

Princesses Marina at Duncroft

Duncroft was visited by friends of the royal family, such as James Robertson Justice and the Queen’s cousin, Princess Alexandra, who was good friends with Jimmy Savile…and Rab Butler linked to PIE

Many of the 25 or so girls in its care at any one time came from comfortable backgrounds and included the daughters of ambassadors and BBC producers.

As a Home Office-approved school, funding came from Social Services.

Regular guests at their parties included the actor James Robertson Justice, who was one of Britain’s leading film stars in the 1940s and 1950s and reportedly a close friend of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Princesses Marina and Alexandra are said to have attended. Among the former Duncroft girls to have come forward, one has said she was put in the isolation unit for ‘two or three days’ after loudly protesting when Savile groped her in a caravan on the school grounds. ‘For years we tried to report him,’ another confided to me. ‘We even had a mass breakout to Staines police station.’

Princess  Alexander  was patron of NAMH and went to Duncroft under that role

 Panorama and Newsnight reported that the home was often visited by numerous people, including Jimmy Savile, and that these visits seem to occur sporadically without any checks or questions being asked  How this could happen?

Girls were  taken, in groups, to recordings of programmes at the BBC television centre.

The Walton Hop was situated only five miles from Jimmy Savile’s haunt the infamous Duncroft Approved School.

Girls were also  allowed to attend the Walton Hop which was within walking distance and were sometimes provided with ‘escorts’

Walton Hop was  the hunting ground for convicted abusers such as Chris Denning, Jonathan King and Tom Paton – the latter of Bay City Rollers infamy.

Princess Alexandra’s husband, Angus Ogilvy was the president of the National Association of Youth Clubs of which Savile was vice-president. Both were appointed by Sir Harold Haywood, who also happened to have been Prince Charles most trusted charity aide, responsible for the Prince’s Trust.

A Jimmy Savile sex scandal concealed during the 1997 General Election.

Stephen Dorrell

The man who now leads the NHS Confederation failed to tell either Parliament or the public of a 1995 sex scandal at Broadmoor hospital, involving “a member of staff’ who – it can now be revealed – was Jimmy Savile.

Stephen Dorrell served as Health Secretary in Sir John Major’s government between 1995 and 1997 and did not disclose the scndal. The offences Savile committed after 1995 could have been prevented.

https://www.lobster-magazine.co.uk/free/lobster73/lob73-jimmy-savile.pdf

Dorrell was promoted to government after the 1987 General Election by the Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as an Assistant Government Whip, and in 1988 became a Lord Commissioner to the Treasury ‘full whip’. He was appointed as the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Health in 1990 under the premiership of John Major.

There was evidence of a Broadmoor paedophile ring in 1986

The current Savile NHS inquiry is looking at allegations of sexual abuse at Broadmoor psychiatric hospital in Berkshire.

There were allegations of a ‘child pornography ring’ at Broadmoor in 1997, but a report by Health Secretary Stephen Dorrell found “no evidence whatsoever of a paedophile ring or child pornography ring in Broadmoor”. Broadmoor’s chief executive Alan Franey resigned shortly afterwards. (Independent 17/02/97 + Independent 04/06/97)

But it seems there had also been allegations of a paedophile ring involving Broadmoor staff in 1986.

“Detectives believe they have broken a nationwide network making and distributing child porn videos. Films featuring girls as young as three and six have been seized in raids on 30 homes across the country. And a key figure in the network has been identified by CID – a middle-aged former Broadmoor nurse.”

His description was circulated to forces investigating the murder or disappearance of 15 children.

The article goes on to say that police were checking the former nurse’s work records to see whether he had “been on duty at the relevant times”.

This indicates that police knew the abuse was filmed at Broadmoor. Police searched his home and found “video equipment, sex films, and distribution records”. “The nurse appeared in some of the films”.

Two of the young victims, aged three and six, had been identified and lived in Camberley, which is just a mile or two from Broadmoor Hospital.

Politicians have pledged to hold the NHS to account over Savile’s alleged activities in hospitals.

Stephen Dorrell, chair of the health select committee told the BBC he had written to the Secretary of State to ask him to “clarify exactly what the NHS is doing to establish what happened, why it happened, and what lessons can be learned for the future.”.

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/10/28/jimmy-savile-gary-glitter-cottage_n_2034754.html

Stephen Dorrell, the veteran Conservative MP, has been accused of a conflict of interest after taking a job as an adviser with a private firm targeting a £1billion NHS contract.

The MP for Charnwood, a cabinet minister in John Major’s government, announced last week that he would be stepping down at the General Election as he had accepted a job as a health policy consultant with accountancy firm KPMG, which he said would be “incompatible” with his role as an MP.

However, it is claimed that he is starting his new three-days-a-week job on Monday, meaning that he will be in both positions for six months.

KPMG are considering bidding for a £1 billion deal to manage the patient’s medical records.

Mr Dorrell, who quit his post as chairman of the House of Commons Health Select Committee in June, faced calls to resign from one of the posts.

“This case demonstrates everything that is rotten about our -political system.”

Susanne Cameron Blackie/Susanne Nundy/Anna Raccoon is a damn blasted liar and a cover upper of institutional child abuse


Anna Racoon is known to protect paedophiles please read this from the PJC Journal wriiten April 2011

“I would call this a set-up simply because Susanne Nundy has a history. Wherever there is a story of abuse by officials, especially when it relates to children or paedophilia, up pops a swathe of names including Anna Raccoon, Susanne Nundy or under her maiden name Susanne Cameron-Blackie , all ready to ‘assist’, yet strangely the outcome is never the one that those originally abused, or their campaigners envisaged. More often than not they are ripped apart, labelled as nutters and thrown to the pack in the manner we saw with her post about Andrew Withers yesterday. Its almost as if she is a professional Trojan Horse.

Mrs Cameron-Blackie moved to Reedham two years ago.

Mrs Cameron-Blackie was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer – leiomyosarcoma – six years ago and was given two months to live two years ago.

She decided to stand two weeks ago after discovering the NHS Litigation Authority annual report for April 2015-16 online.

Mrs Cameron-Blackie raised the £500 election deposit in 24 hours through an online Crowdfunding page,


A second & completely different story about why this silly woman is standing against Mr Corbyn rather than the Tories who have been in charge of the NHS for 7 years. The first makes it clear it was after she was given the wrong medication last month. This second story says it was after she read a 2015 report. Is this fake news, or as some called Media Malpractice?

Could it be she wanted to sidle up to Rosthorn?

AnnaStillHereRaccoon‏ @AnnaRaccoon2017

I doubt it somehow – Andrew has lots of other interests and little time, so can’t see the advantage – but maybe she was unaware of that.

She told me she thought it would be an opportunity to write an article for the Spectator on Corbyn’s election night. It made sense to me.

Andrew was only too happy to arrange it for her with the election authorities in Islington. She had to provide ID and photos.

raccoon:

There was no need for Andrew to be there, and it would have cost him a fortune to go down to London and pay for a hotel, she was already in London. By that time I was too sick to play any part in what should have been a ‘NHS campaign’- I hadn’t expected my health to deteriorate that fast, nobody had, but there you go – it did, so I was only too happy to agree to anybody pulling anything useful out of the situation that they could. Mentally I was trying to deal with the fact that I had gone from being a walking talking individual to one that was paralysed over a single weekend, at the same time as dealing with an extraordinary family situation, and with journalists emailing me because I was standing against Corbyn, and with this bizarre team of trolls convinced I was Old Holborn and with people who should have been my supporters also working in the background and creating a rift between me and Amanda, the one person I really trusted – and then the JK debacle all over the same period of a few days, whilst I was lying in hospital with people pumping drugs into me trying to kill this immense pain – did I flip? Too right I did. Anybody would have done. I, and Mr G, have coped by pulling up the drawbridge and only letting a very select few people over it. That is the way it will stay. I watch what is going on out of interest, but I am no longer part of it and never will be again. What is said on the internet just washes over me. Almost a shame really, because I can see how much effort Hewson in particular puts into sending out endless tweets, and sadly the steroids have affected my eyesight, so half the time I cannot be bothered to enlarge the screenshots to even see what she is saying!!!! I reserve my energy for e-mails etc from people who really matter like Blocked Dwarf, and and & other good solid friends, some of whom I have made quite recently like – not flakes.

THE PAEDOFILE: TRIBUNE UNEARTHS MILITARY INTELLIGENCE SPOOK WHO SUPPLIED NAMES FOR DICKENS DOSSIER.

St John-Stevas, Cyril Smith, Sir Peter Hayman & Attorney General Havers continue to be implicated.

In a sensational piece for the latest edition of Tribune, a major blow is dealt to those who dismiss perversion whistle-blower Geoff Dickens as a fantasist.

The post, by left-wing journalist Andrew Rosthorn, adds compelling evidence to support the Havers cover-up…in getting MI5/MI6 operative Tony Holland, now a wealthy Australian stock market investor) to go on the record as the man who furnished names for the maverick Tory MP’s dossier, Rosthorn has scored something of a coup in the serious investigation of Westminster deviants.

Among other things, the Tribune piece reveals and confirms as follows:

*The dossier ‘list’ given to Margaret Thatcher’s home secretary Leon Brittan included

arts minister Norman St John-Stevas (founding member of the Bow Group)

senior diplomat Sir Peter Hayman,

Rochdale MP Cyril Smith

 

*A secret  file from Mrs Thatcher’s cabinet office: PREM19/588 – SECURITY. Allegations against former public [word missing] of unnatural sexual proclivities; security aspects 1980 Oct 27 – 1981 Mar 20 has now been tracked down from the National Archives in Kew by Dr Chris Murphy, lecturer in Intelligence Studies at Salford University. The file – released to the Home Office Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse, includes a handwritten briefing note for the Attorney-General marked ‘line to take’: ‘A full investigation has been carried out and has revealed nothing to suggest that security has been prejudiced’. A carefully narrowed definition, I think one might conclude.

* To shut him up, police and judiciary conspired to get Tony Holland sent to prison in an obvious frame-up about the theft of a refrigerator. Law Lords later confirmed his innocence, but to this day Yorkshire Police refuses to obliterate the charge and conviction. Dear old YP, they never change do they? Much later – on December 28, 1991 – Melvyn Hodgson – the man whose evidence could have proved Tony Holland – was found hanged in his cell at Armley Prison in Leeds. How very convenient.

* In August 1983, Dickens handed a second dossier to Scotland Yard, having presumably by this time lost trust in Leon Brittan’s willingness to investigate it. Significantly, he testified at the time that “eight public figures, including ‘a friend of mine’“ would be named in the Commons unless the home secretary took action. It seems reasonable to speculate that Leon Brittan – who was on friendly terms with his fellow Conservative MP, and always referred to him as ‘Geoff’ – was the friend concerned.

http://stopsuingthenhs.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/i-was-intending-to-write-scintillating.html

NHS liability & Savile –

The massive legal threat to the NHS that is not hidden and sits in plain sight of the sheople like a hungry lion, has primarily fed on the issue of medical negligence but so rich are the pickings that they have already gobbled up a quarter of the entire NHS Budget.

It is all too plain that the allegations in the Savile matter all hinge around the past negligence and failure of the NHS to protect the victims from assaults on NHS property.

This Vicarious Liability naturally all rests upon these allegations being deemed true. If, as I and others have contended proved, these claims are demonstrably not true then the NHS is off the hook.

Deleted article by Rosthorn – Savile “moral panic”

http://jimcannotfixthis.blogspot.com/2015/03/this-is-my-truth-tell-me-yours.html

Jimmy Savile ‘moral panic’ tracked by computer in Dordogne

Feb 23 2015 by Andrew Rosthorn

The article in question, “Jimmy Savile ‘Moral Panic’ Tracked By Computer In Dordogne”, is based on an archive of private social media discussions between the women who later came forward to claim they were sexually abused by the late entertainer. Forty years ago the women had been teenagers at the Duncroft Approved School.

The owner of the archive was a retired English lawyer living in the Dordogne region of France. She lived in care at Duncroft in 1965 and 1966. Her name was Susanne Cameron-Blackie, aka – the blogger Anna Raccoon.

Yes, Anna, or Susanne, is right at the heart of this story.

In 2013  Anna Raccoon  sent an email to Professor Viviene Cree at the Edinburgh University School of Social and Political Science, explaining the situation and saying she hoped the university would provide a good home for her archive. That summer the Economic and Social Research Council activated its Urgency Grants Mechanism to form a research team for the recovery and collation of documents and the information stored on Anna Raccoon’s computer in the Dordogne.

The full story of the research team and its project are set out in the Lancashire Magazine’s article and is recommended reading.

http://www.holliegreigjustice.uk/hgj/?p=15689

http://www.research.ed.ac.uk/portal/en/publications/moral-panics-jimmy-savile-and-social-work(e5cf3c06-4f77-4861-98a6-2d6978d9b8fd).html

Social scientists studying mass-media fantasies known as Moral Panics have rescued an archive of online conversations that promises to unravel the mysterious origins of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

Thousands of emails stored on an Apple iMac personal computer in France recorded hours of private social media discussions between the women who later came forward to claim they were sexually abused by the dead disc jockey.

Forty years ago the women had been teenagers at the Duncroft Approved School, an experimental boarding school opened by the Home Office to give a second chance of education for girls of above-average intelligence who had been taken into care.

The owner of the archive was a retired English lawyer living in the Dordogne region. She lived in care at Duncroft in 1965 and 1966.

Susanne Cameron-Blackie, known online as the blogger Anna Raccoon, had joined two online communities known as Friendsreunited and Care Leavers Reunited where former boarders at the school were exchanging memories using code names.

Collaborating online with Sally Stevens, another former pupil living in California, Anna Raccoon worked out the real identities of the women behind the code names.

Anna Raccoon has since described how she noticed that a woman who roomed with her in the Wedgewood Dormitory at Duncroft in 1965 was claiming online to have been assaulted by Jimmy Savile in the dormitory when she was 15 years old:

How could I have been so unobservant as to not notice such a comment-worthy event as a major celebrity galloping around the building unescorted? There had to be some mistake in the reporting. Or maybe in my maths? I rechecked all my fingers, yep I was definitely there in 1965. Except for one month at the end of the year – but I was back four months later.

So began a three year unofficial investigation into the Duncroft allegations that had sparked the 2012 nationwide Savile Scandal.

Cameron-Blackie collated further information gathered by three other blogging investigators known as Moor Larkin, Rabbitaway and The Rockphiles.

In November 2012, when some of the ‘care leavers’ emerged from the anonymity of social media to give television interviews and instruct lawyers to take proceedings against the BBC and Jimmy Savile’s estate, Cameron-Blackie, the former Lord Chancellor’s Visitor for Wales, was able to cross-reference their claims.

Surrey Police later wrote to a hundred surviving Duncroft pupils and staff to report that the police ‘Operation Outreach’ found no corroborated evidence that any member of staff had been aware of any wrongdoing at the school. It was also discovered from a visitor’s book that Savile had not visited the school before 1974.

In 2013, fearing that she might not survive a forthcoming cancer operation in France, Cameron-Blackie sent an email to Professor Viviene Cree at the Edinburgh University School of Social and Political Science:

I blog on the Internet as ‘Anna Raccoon’ and as such have published several articles on the current ‘Savile saga’ http://annaraccoon.com.

However, having found myself at the centre of the ‘Duncroft’ furore, I have also been given a mound of information which I have not yet published. I am looking for a good home for it!

Is there a possibility that we might collaborate in some way? I am not interested in money, nor credit for my contribution, but I am not in good health (I have had cancer for the past two years, and am now – thank God – several months past my ‘sell by’ date, but I take nothing for granted!) and I am growing concerned that should I kick the proverbial bucket, then the knowledge and the contacts that I hold will be lost forever, and one day academics will want to piece together the origins of this current panic.

Within weeks of the November 2012 screening of the ITV documentary Exposure: The Other Side of Jimmy Savile, Edinburgh University held the first of several Moral Panic Seminars, involving Professor Cree, Dr Mark Smith, head of social work, and Dr Gary Clapton, senior lecturer in social work.

The Edinburgh team say they

shared common interests in how particular subjects, especially those involving children and sex (e.g. satanic ritual abuse, child exploitation and abuse in residential child care settings) could be moralised with disproportionate and sometimes dangerous consequences.

Their research project, state-funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and described as Revisiting Moral Panics: A Critical Examination of 21st Century Social Issues and Anxieties aims

to examine some 21st century social issues and anxieties through the concept of moral panic, first brought to public attention 40 years ago in Stanley Cohen’s influential study Folk Devils and Moral Panics.

Cohen analysed media controversies involving the Mods and Rockers of the 1960s and noted

a pattern of distorted facts and misrepresentation, as well as a distinct, simplistic depiction of the respective images of both groups involved in the disturbance.

Cohen, late professor of sociology at the London School of Economics, found that like a mediaeval witch hunt ‘the depiction of mods and rockers as violent, unruly troublemakers actually led in itself to a rise in “deviant behaviour” by the subcultures.’

Dr Smith, an expert in residential child care, had already questioned the reported scale of child abuse in care homes. He noted Anna Raccoon’s discovery that a letter had been forged on stolen Surrey Police notepaper and that when the Daily Mail found the much-admired former headmistress of Duncroft, Miss Margaret Jones, 91, warned their reporter, ‘A lot of these girls at the time were very mentally disturbed.’ Anna Raccoon said:

Stories were sold to the main stream media concerning the girl who had spent a considerable time sitting up in bed opposite me. She was now claiming that Jimmy Savile had been running round our dormitory sexually abusing us and that ‘we were terrified’ – I had never heard so much nonsense.

Another girl was all over social media saying that ‘Maggie Jones’, as she had the temerity to call her, had been ‘pimping the girls out to celebrities’. I literally couldn’t believe my ears.

I was quickly rewarded with, as I had suspected, a raft of supportive ‘ex-Duncroft girls’ who had been googling these mysterious stories, and who had landed on my site. I shall always be grateful to them – they have kept my spirits high as the story grew legs by the day, and I was in danger of disappearing under a tsunami of vitriol and recrimination.

In the summer of 2013, when the National Health Service was spending a million pounds investigating Savile’s activities at 32 different hospitals, the Economic and Social Research Council activated its Urgency Grants Mechanism to form a research team for the recovery and collation of documents and the information stored on Anna Raccoon’s computer in the Dordogne.

The team ‘securing a data set on allegations of sexual abuse made against former disc jockey Jimmy Savile’ includes Dr Steve Kirkwood and Clare Llewellyn an informatics specialist, both from the University of Edinburgh, and Dr Ros Burnett, Senior Research Associate at the Centre for Criminology, Oxford University.

Dr Burnett is currently editing Vilified: Wrongful Allegations of Sexual and Child Abuse.

Funded under an ESRC call for urgent research, the project

aims to secure data that might otherwise be lost, relating to allegations made against the former DJ, Jimmy Savile. The initiative for the project came from a lawyer and writer who is a former resident of Duncroft School (from whence the initial allegations against Savile emanate), and whose blogging activity under the name of ‘Anna Raccoon’ has generated a substantial body of related correspondence and contacts which provide and could lead to information not yet in the public domain. We aim to collate and archive Anna Raccoon’s blog posts, comments on these and to interview key staff and former residents from Duncroft School. The data gathered will be digitally archived and made available to other researchers. It is likely to be of interest to social and cultural historians, criminologists, lawyers and social workers amongst others.

Dr Smith said in 2013:

The purpose is to gather new informant data not yet in the public domain but relevant to the allegations about Savile, and to cross-check this against information in newspapers and official reports.

The new data is likely to include emails, letters, blog posts and comments on blog posts, and possibly documents relating to Duncroft School, and maybe photocopies of personal notes such as diary entries and autobiographical notes that the correspondents may be willing to share. An important element of what we will be doing during this urgent phase is obtain permission to share the new data which has been acquired by Anna Raccoon. A priority will be reassure participants that their data will be appropriately anonymised.

Susanne Cameron-Blackie, still contributing to her Anna Raccoon blog, but now living with her husband in Norfolk, said last week:

I am still suffering from cancer. The doctors have not given me long to live. Although I am both a writer and a lawyer I could not have embarked on a lengthy project at this stage in my life.

I looked for someone who could research the actual truth about what really happened all those years ago and delineate the path by which we arrived at the current situation.

The NHS investigated Jimmy Saviles’s activities at Moss Side Hospital, a psychiatric hospital later merged to form the top security Ashworth Hopital at Maghull near Liverpool, Prestwich Psychiatric Hospital, St Catherine’s Hospital, Birkenhead, Wythenshawe Hospital and Booth Hall Children’s Hospital [closed in 2009]. No ‘irrefutable’ offences were found.

The subject was how to reduce false allegations.

Only just seeing this today ! Good reporting ^ Barbara (Hewson) especially the stories about Police ‘trawling’ for ‘victims’, appalling.
My only gripe would be that neither Mark Smith or ‘Anna Raccoon’ appear to have mentioned the University research project relating to the Savile claims. Much talk of ‘post Savile’ but, he, or rather, his loved ones, have had to endure three years of, what many now believe are ‘false’ claims repeated in the media on an almost daily beside.

Several bloggers including myself have been investigating the Savile claims for more than two years. A fact noted here –

‘So began a three year unofficial investigation into the Duncroft allegations that had sparked the 2012 nationwide Savile Scandal.

Cameron-Blackie collated further information gathered by three other blogging investigators known as Moor Larkin, Rabbitaway and The Rockphiles.’

Oyston affair and Rosthorn

7 June
Murrin told reporter Andrew Rosthorn that the Private Eye reporter Paul Halloran had said to him, ‘I want a blank cheque made payable to me, cash up front. I want access to your informants.’ Murrin gave Rosthorn the telephone number of John Robertson of the Inland Revenue Enquiry Branch in Liverpool and put Rosthorn in touch with former Oyston employees Bill Nabb, Richard Arnold and Sheila Catlin. Murrin passed on to Rosthorn information about Liverpool drug dealers, accountants and councillors and details of the Comerford Old Bailey case of 1986 in which ‘Bob the Dog’ McGorrin was named as Liverpool’s leading drug dealer under cross-examination. Murrin said Liverpool’s deputy Labour leader Derek Hatton was linked to these men and that developer Ted Spencer, who fled Britain at about same time as McGorrin, had done property deals in Preston with its deputy Labour leader Frank McGrath. Murrin called Bill Harrison and told him a Merseyside reporter was,’connecting Derek Hatton with drugs in Liverpool, Bobby McGorrin, the Hughes Twins. He’s coming up with all the same names as I’m coming up with.’
5 July
Murrin wrote to Detective Inspector Frank Whitehead of Greater Manchester Commercial Fraud Squad saying, ‘I have forwarded tapes to Lancashire Police [Operation Angel] as follows: 1. an interview with Mr J. Seddon in which he claims Oyston offered him the sexual services of a woman. 2. A telephone conversation with a Mr McNabb during which he said Oyston had claimed to have compromising photographs of a business associate. ‘There were constant reports of Oyston being provided women by Martin and of Oyston providing women to politicians and business associates. The use of “children” was also the subject of one report. I request a full investigation into the allegations made concerning Martin and Oyston.’

 

6 July
Alerted by Andrew Rosthorn, Dale Campbell-Savours MP put down notice of an Early Day Motion in the House of Commons asking Owen Oyston to state whether Oyston Ltd, registered in the Isle of Man and controlled from Hong Kong by Patrick Diamond had any connection with Oyston Estates Agency Ltd. He also put down a question ‘to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, if all investigations into the tax affairs of Oyston Estates Agency Ltd. and related companies are complete.’
9 July
Rosthorn’s inquiries at Advertee Ltd., an advertising firm recently bought by Oyston from the directors of a bankrupt publishing firm, revealed that ex-policeman Peter Martin was apparently running the firm, with offices in Manchester and Preston. Martin said he was a former fraud squad policeman and ran the Model Team International agency in Manchester. Martin ‘boasted that he was getting £50k per annum as Oyston’s “toe rag”.’ Martin talked of getting calls to take models at night to Oyston in London. Models at the agency had complained to the Advertee staff that they had paid for a ‘course that never materialised and have not been paid.
Oyston and Campbell-Savours MP met in Cumbria, after which Oyston promised a ‘world-wide investigation’ to find who was behind the two ‘Oyston companies’.

 

11 July
Rosthorn reported Halloran’s activities with Murrin to Ian Hislop, editor of Private Eye.
13 July
Oyston served an injunction on Murrin forbidding him from further publishing his Red Rose document.

Harding played vital role in Britain’s biggest child sex ring

MUSIC box collector and clock maker Keith Harding, whose staff restored antiques for royalty, played a vital role in Britain’s biggest child sex ring.

The pervert met regularly with MPs Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith at his world-renowned workshop. 
The former Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe would also drop by along with key members of the vile Paedophile Information Exchange Steven Adrian Smith and Tom O’Carroll.A PIE list seized in 1984 records Harding, who died from cancer last year aged 82, as member 329 and his address as Hornsey Road, Holloway, north London.He is understood to have kept hidden a list of more than 1,000 PIE members with prominent names including top politicians from the Thatcher era.
One of his staff, who worked for him between 1980 and 1987, said: “Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith were both regular visitors to the shop.Usually they would come in via the side door, other times they would ring the bell at the front entrance and come in.“They’d straight away ask for Keith who would be coming down the stairs.“Then they would then either go up to his office for a private meeting or they’d go out for several hours.”The former worker added: “The shop had many high profile customers, including the Royals, because we were one of the few antique dealers in the world that specialised in restoring clocks, music boxes and automatons.“It’s only now, with what I know about Brittan and Smith, and of course Keith, that has made me wonder what they were doing.

What did Tameside Council know about Stuart Hall’s raping of girls and are they aware of which MP/peer assisted him over decades?

Was the case of rape against Stuart Hall allowed to rest to protect a Labour MP/peer?

Oyston homes in on Spain

23 November 2003

THE former chairman of Blackpool football club, one-time media baron and convicted rapist Owen Oyston has teamed up with a Labour peer to run a Spanish estate-agent.

Oyston, jailed for raping a 16-year-old model, has bought the firm in Marbella on the Costa del Sol. Since his release he has consistently protested his innocence.

The company, which specialises in selling luxury properties around the fashionable resort has been renamed Oyston Steel, and while Oyston is not one of the seven directors named at Companies House, he is the sole owner of the business.

The directors include Lord Pendry, the former Stalybridge and Hyde MP who once served as shadow sports minister. Pendry has been one of Oyston’s loyal supporters and in 1995 he accused two Conservative politicians of masterminding a dirty tricks campaign against him.

Millionaire rapist invited to a gala dinner by Labour

14 July 2007

A convicted rapist attended a fundraising dinner for the Labour Party this week, alongside Gordon Brown, Tony Blair and a string of celebrities.

Owen Oyston, who served three-and-a-half years in jail for attacking a 16-year-old girl, was invited by party chiefs to the £1,000-ahead event at Wembley Stadium.

The disgraced multi-millionaire businessman was filmed at the gala on Thursday which aimed to raise £500,000 to help plug the £20million hole in Labour’s finances.

Also on the guest list were Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson

Lord Pendry is a close friend and associate of Stuart Hall
 


Stuart Hall was convicted and jailed in 2013 for a string of serious sexual assaults on young girls one of whom was only 9 years old at the time she was attacked.

 


The Independent Newspaper reported about a letter from one of Stuart Hall’s victim’s:

“The story she told cut away the undeclared certainties of life we all take for granted, rely on. She was a “shy, intelligent, studious, pretty girl”, young for her years, who was going to go to university one day. He was invited to the school to hand out annual prizes and she was one of the prize winners After the ceremony the head summoned her to say Hall was so impressed with her, he had asked her to visit the BBC studios.”
“To have a man of my father’s age take a benevolent interest in me seemed wonderful to a girl of my history,” she writes. She went to the studios encouraged by her mum and head teacher. And went back again, and once more. He seemed caring. Then, having groomed her, she alleges, he got her drunk and started the abuse. She kept going back. His mates, she claims, helped Hall with his filthy hobby.
The sex acts hurt. Sometimes she bled. She hated it”

 

Stuart Hall lived in Stalybridge which is Lord Pendry’s former constituency when he was a Labour MP.
 
Mrs Stuart Hall and Lord Pendry’s wife Moira used to be co-directors of a company called Pendry Hall Associates
In February 1999 Lord Pendry put forward an Early Day Motion congratulating Stuart Hall on 40 years of broadcasting and hailing him as an icon with the youth of today

Hadn’t realised Daniel Janner was involved in Oyston and Martin and cross-examiner in Kevin O’Dowd rape trial.

Lord Janner’s family to ‘undermine’ sex abuse inquiry strand into their father after being given formal role in investigation

“It gives me the chance to undermine the inquiry from within.” Daniel Janner QC

The family of Lord Janner yesterday vowed to ‘undermine from within’ the Government’s beleaguered child sex abuse inquiry after being given a formal role in the investigation.

The family were granted core participant status which gives them access to documents and to have lawyers attend the inquiry’s hearings.

Anna Raccoon – supporter of Proctor et al

June 5 2017

That would mean spending precious time on it – and there are many good people, Laura Janner, Harvey Proctor, Kato Harris,who have repaid my support of them with nothing but kindness and continued support.

The deathbed candidate: The cancer-sufferer standing against Jeremy Corbyn in his own backyard

  • Cancer sufferer Susanne Cameron-Blackie is standing in the General Election
  • The 68-year-old political blogger wants to use her dying days to fight Labour
  • Ms Cameron-Blackie will challenge Jeremy Corbyn for his seat in Islingto

Jeremy Corbyn claims the NHS isn’t safe in Tory hands. But the truth is, it’s not safe under Labour, either. The crisis that is threatening to destroy it gets deeper every day for reasons Corbyn hasn’t started to think about – and that’s why I’m running against him.’

Susanne Cameron-Blackie, better known as the political blogger Anna Raccoon, is speaking in her cottage kitchen, blessed with a stunning view across the Norfolk Broads. She is in a hospital bed, propped up by pillows. It is likely to be her death bed, her last resting place before the cancer that has ravaged her body finally claims her.

Yet it is from here that she will register this week as an independent candidate to fight Corbyn for his parliamentary seat in Islington North.

Susanne does not know whether she will survive until Election Day on June 8. But she is determined to use every moment she has left to fight Corbyn

On a bedside table are some of the drugs keeping at bay the agony caused by the cancer which has spread through much of her body: Fentanyl, a clinical form of heroin, and the animal tranquilliser ketamine. A team of nurses visits every day.

Susanne does not know whether she will survive until Election Day on June 8. But she is determined to use every moment she has left to fight Corbyn.

‘I may be the first parliamentary candidate forced to lie down, rather than stand, for office. But I’m determined to do something useful with what’s left of my life.

‘I’m taking on Corbyn in his political comfort zone. He talks about shaping the future. As things stand, the future for the NHS is to vanish up its own backside because of the money going on lawyers and damages.’

Her campaign is based on the urgent need for sweeping reform of the personal injury legal system, to safeguard the NHS from the crippling and ever-increasing burden of medical negligence lawsuits.

Last year, NHS Resolution, the body which handles such claims, revealed that cases arising from incidents up to the middle of 2016 are set to soak up a staggering £56 billion in lawyers’ fees and damages by the time they are settled – half NHS England’s annual budget.

Susanne, 68, has battled her illness, leiomyosarcoma, a rare soft tissue cancer, for six years. After almost killing her several times, it has now attacked her spine, rendering her immobile.

Susanne Nundy is the name used by British Libertarian blogger, Anna Raccoon, more popularly known for her posts about the Madeleine McCann and Hollie Greig stories

Nundy and Greg Watkins are alleged to have co-managed a disinformation campaign around the Hollie Greig case

Why did ‘Susanne Nundy’ or whoever she is – use the email address courtofprotection.co.uk?

The Court of Protection as it exists now, was set up by Jack Straw and New Labour in 2005 (created under the Mental Capacity Act 2005).

In the Inexorable choices‘ post Nundy says she was in office in 2003 (just as Blair ditched the office of Lord Chancellor) and yet in an email she sent me yesterday, Raccoon insists she had resigned the office in 2000 . But even Chris Carter, her replacement in 2004, insists she was working at this time.

Interestingly the email address alleged to have ‘outed’ Anna Raccoon (and I use the term cautiously) was left on a website for Old Scholars at St Christopher’s School in Letchworth, Hertfordshire – an old and respected boarding school set up by Beatrice Ensor – a close friend of Fabian Socialist and Freemason, Annie Besant and sponsored by Helena Blavtasky’s Theosophical Society.

I’m also finding it difficult to reconcile Susanne Nundy’s celebrated ‘Libertarian’ ideals with the idea of her working with such a crudely draconian, insidious and cheerfully Orwellian institution as the Court of Protection. I’ve seen her attempts to address this fairly awkward little paradox in her blog. She says it wasn’t an invention of ‘Nu Labour’ and Jack Straw – but that’s just being pedantic.

It had existed in one form or another for years, but New Labour extended its powers and its reach exponentially in 2005 (whilst simultaneously incapacitating the power of carers and relatives). It was rebranded, relaunched. According to a Daily Telegraph report, the Court of Protection’s expansion had been controversial’ not only for its extensive powers but also for the fact that almost all of its hearings take place in private‘.

Moore Laine sounds like Anna Racoon who’s real name is Susanne Nundy but who uses her maiden name of Suzanne Cameron-Blackie

She uses a lot of names and works for M15. Her and her little group are specialist child abuse debunkers.

Raccoon attending Duncroft  is not a surprise as I am told it was used to recruit highly intelligent but very seriously disturbed girls for work in the intelligence services.

Crushed: Susanne, pictured above in her 20s, was a victim of medical negligence in 1973 when she was given a hysterectomy at the Westminster Hospital when she was admitted for a ‘dilation and curettage’, a minor operation used to deal with heavy periods

But she shows no sign of giving up. ‘No politician has ever tackled this issue, least of all Corbyn,’ she says. ‘All Labour talks about is the amount of money going in through the NHS’s front door – ignoring the haemorrhaging out the back.’

Just how pressing the issue is was brought home to Susanne last month. After spending days in the cancer high-dependency unit at the Norwich and Norfolk Hospital, she had been prescribed the Fentanyl and ketamine, but an error by a nurse meant she was given a tiny dose of a much weaker drug – a prescription meant for another patient.

She shudders at the memory. ‘I can’t even begin to describe the pain I was in,’ she says. ‘It was a descent into hell.’ No wonder: a scan revealed that the erosion of one of her vertebrae had left her spinal cord exposed.

But for Susanne, worse was to come. ‘Excruciating as it was, the mistake was recognised and put right. But afterwards, I had a visit from someone in the hospital’s legal department. She wanted to know if had I engaged a lawyer, and was I planning to sue?

‘I was flabbergasted. Why? What would be the point? I know why the mistake was made: because the nurses in that unit are rushed off their feet. If I were to sue, the only thing that would change would be my husband’s bank account in several years, long after I’m gone.

‘If I sued, I would be taking away yet more money from the NHS, so making it more likely that a future patient would endure a similar ordeal. This is the point Corbyn and Labour don’t get. They say they are socialists, yet they’re doing nothing about a system which treats the NHS as if it were a manufacturer making faulty products, instead of a provider of a vital social good.’

It wasn’t the first time Susanne had become a victim of medical negligence. In 1973, for reasons never explained, she was given a hysterectomy at the Westminster Hospital when she was admitted for a ‘dilation and curettage’, a minor operation used to deal with heavy periods.

‘I was only 23 – it left me psychologically crushed. Yet 45 years ago, people didn’t think of suing the NHS. One thing I do know is money would have made no difference. I picked myself up and moved on.’

It was not until she was in her 50s that she went to Aberystwyth University and obtained a double first in law. But by this time, she had spent years working for the Lord Chancellor’s department as an investigator for the Court of Protection, the tribunal which decides when people cannot administer their affairs through physical or mental incapacity.

‘As I thought about what had happened at the Norwich and Norfolk, I realised that through my work, I had witnessed some of the system’s worst abuses – in cases where incapacitated people were suing for medical negligence and getting enormous settlements. Then Mrs May announced the Election. I knew this was my chance.’

Among the most crucial reforms, she says, is the repeal of a 1948 law which means, bizarrely, that when patients sue the NHS, their damages are calculated on the basis they will pay for private healthcare for the rest of their lives – even though many will continue to be treated in the public sector, at public cost.

‘I saw this time and again,’ Susanne says. ‘Someone would get a huge settlement, but not fork out a penny on care. Meanwhile big awards, running into millions, are assessed on the basis that the beneficiary will live for several decades. But if they die a few years later, nothing goes back to the NHS. They can leave it to their relatives or a dogs’ home. This has to change.’

However, the biggest change she wants is more fundamental: an end to the legal lottery that means two patients with identical needs will be treated differently – one receiving millions, and the other nothing. ‘Take, for example, a cerebral palsy patient. The case will probably come down to something in the medical notes that a lawyer can argue means the midwife was absent for 19 minutes. These claims aren’t based on need, but on a narrow, legal definition of fault.

‘So they drag on for years. And it means a doctor or a hospital can never say sorry, which is all many patients want – because to do so will mean admitting liability.’

The last time the Government appointed a commission to examine this situation in 1978, it recommended a ‘no fault’ system be investigated.

Tomorrow, armed with the necessary ten local resident signatures and a campaign address in Mr Corbyn’s constituency, Susanne’s candidacy will be registered with the returning officer.

‘Just imagine: if some of the billions going to law firms and left legacies could be put into patient care, what a difference that would make. I will fight to my dying breath to make people – including Jeremy Corbyn – recognise this fact.’

Jimmy Savile’s Duncroft school victims set to sue Barnardo’s and Mind

One woman claims she was abused between 1976 and 1980 when it was run by Barnardo’s and three others say they were molested between 1973 and 1976 when Mind ran the school.

Victims from Duncroft ­previously described how Savile sexually assaulted them after being allowed to stay overnight by the headmistress.

Child abuse ‘cover-up’ claims after Barnardo’s admits systematically destroying files

June 3 2017

CHILDREN’S charity Barnardo’s systematically destroyed records at its residential care homes where child sex abuse occurred over three decades – but claimed to victims that files had been lost in a flood.

The organisation’s solicitor made the shock admission to the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry. Victims of abuse say they have been left “distressed” by the revelation that the charity had a policy of disposing of files when they shut care homes where abuse happened in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

Groups representing survivors have accused Barnardo’s of “covering their tracks”

Barnardo’s close links with royalty started when our work began in 1867, and still continues today with Her Majesty the Queen as our patron and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall as our President. In fact, Barnardo’s has had a royal patron since 1902 and royal presidents from 1923.

There have been a variety of royal events over the centuries ranging from 100 children attending George V’s silver jubilee in 1935, to royal visits to many of our projects and the opportunity for many children Barnardo’s has worked with over the decades to meet our royal supporters.

Was this research on Duncroft & Savile allegations ever published? It’s closed now and received almost £50k

 

^ Research related to the blog of former Duncroft School resident (known as the blogger Anna Raccoon) who denied that Jimmy Savile had been at Duncroft when she was there – despite claims by her roommate who said she had been assaulted by Jimmy Savile.

Anna Raccoon has since described how she noticed that a woman who roomed with her in the Wedgewood Dormitory at Duncroft in 1965 was claiming online to have been assaulted by Jimmy Savile in the dormitory when she was 15 years old:

How could I have been so unobservant as to not notice such a comment-worthy event as a major celebrity galloping around the building unescorted? There had to be some mistake in the reporting. Or maybe in my maths? I rechecked all my fingers, yep I was definitely there in 1965. Except for one month at the end of the year – but I was back four months later.

link

Here’s some of her “work”

from raccoon….2013/03/12

What have we here? An entry in the Metropolitan Police Services Paedophile Intelligence Unit from 1964. In a book also dated 1981. So these matters were taken seriously enough in 1964 to warrant an independent unit, eh? Or backdated in 1981?

“BATTERSEA BRIDGE ROAD, (WA) – 4 older girls & youth named [name] (? Homosexual) live at – Jimmy SAVILLE (sic) well known disc jockey frequents –used by absconders from DUNCROFT APP SCHOOL”.

Wow, that’s odd. 1964, just the time when I was first an absconder from Duncroft – and living in Battersea Bridge Road!

In a house rented by four older girls, who ran the fan club for The Animals, and one of the girls was Don Arden’s secretary and frequently on Top of the Pops… couldn’t be the same house could it?

Notorious Don Arden father of Sharon Osbourne.

Behind the glitz of Top Of The Pops were serious, sometimes villainous men like Arden making mountains of money which they were determined to hang on to. He would beat the other guy, he would say, by “fair means or foul”.

…charged with the kidnapping, blackmail, torture and the assault of the former employee.

Amazingly, he got off.

Don also became involved with the Republican Party and Ronald Reagan. When Reagan became President, Don was invited to the White House.

Don Arden – associate of the Krays – who ran a paedophile ring

 

Anna Raccoon

My only connection with those girls was that my then boyfriend, Joss, knew them, and they had agreed that I could temporarily sleep on their sofa – which I did.

One of the girls, Dawn Voice-Cooper, was secretary to Don Arden, at the time the largest promoter of rock bands in London. We stayed friends for the next ten years, until she moved to Spain.

I am aware that there had been two Duncroft girls, before my time – ie several years older than me, who had become prostitutes after they left

Had I managed to miss being mauled by Savile yet again?

I think I now hold the world record for managing to be in the most places where Savile is alleged to have abused and never even managed to meet him, never mind been abused by him.

“All men were coloured.” Nope, must have been another group of Duncroft girls, the house I was living in was definitely not being used as a brothel, nor were there any coloured men anywhere near it. Odd that we never bumped into each other though – perhaps they were much older than I.

Little known facts. Ms Raccoon’s Aunt stood for election in Breckfield ward Liverpool City Council in May 1952.

Until her death in 2002, at the ripe old age of 101, Her Majesty the Queen Mother, was the principal royal patron of the British Homeopathic Association. The Duke of Gloucester, formerly Prince Richard, remains royal patron of the association.

 

Princess Alice, the late Duchess of Gloucester, was the patron of the Blackie Foundation Trust established in honor of Dr. Margery Blackie, the former royal homeopathic physician who served from 1969 until 1980.

At present, Princess Alexandra, Lady Ogilvy, is patron to the Blackie Foundation Trust, and Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe, serves as one of the vice-presidents of this organization.

Normandy
Ilona Guest’s 21st Birthday Party

^ Celebrating her 21st birthday in great style on midsummer’s night, Ilona Guest held a masked ball at her mother’s stunning 18th-century chateau in Normandy. Guests of all ages, all nationalities and all sexual proclivities led to frequent cases of mistaken identity. The chatelaine, Venetia Wimborne, did not initially recognize her own son, Grant Barker, behind his golden mask; Vincent Poklewski – Koziell confused everyone by changing his mask frequently – one minute an 18th century courtier the next Coco the Clown. Thankfully, the masks were discarded after the first dance. Ilona’s usually reserved brother Ivor Wimborne gave a moving speech about how his little sister arrived in the world while he was learning to fly-fish. A spectacular electric storm gave way to rain-dancing till dawn, leaving just enough time for things to be put in order for dejeuner sur l’herbe the following day.

One typical vice president of the Blackie Foundation Trust is Enid Segall, who can also boast of being the president of the European Federation of Homeopathic Patients’ Associations.

Here Enid works closely with this Association’s secretary, Sato Liu, who recently served as the Special Projects Manager for Prince Charles’s now defunct quack outfit, the Foundation For Integrated Health, and prior to that as the executive director of the lobbying group known as the Natural Medicines Society (1988-2005).

The Playland Cover-Up

In 1975, Scotland Yard carried out a high-profile child abuse investigation which centred on the Playland amusement arcade near Piccadilly Circus, and involved the sexual exploitation of homeless boys. The investigation led to five convictions in September 1975. Four of the men convicted were ‘nobodies’, but one – Charles Hornby –  was a pillar of the Establishment. He was a  wealthy socialite, a Lloyd’s underwriter, and an old Etonian, “who on occasion had Prince Charles among his dinner guests”.

The four ‘nobodies’ later had their sentences reduced in mysterious circumstances. One of them, David Archer, alleged that Hornby was far from being the only VIP involved in the Playland scandal.

Last night Archer said he would present the police with a dossier naming the ‘millionaires and titled and influential people’ involved in the Playland affair. He added: ‘I believe there was a tremendous cover-up to protect these people.’

A clue as to the identity of one of these ‘titled and influential people’ appeared nearly a decade later with the publication of Philip Ziegler’s biography of Lord Mountbatten.

In 1975, Mountbatten was told that gossip had linked him to a homosexual scandal. He recorded in his diary: “I might have been accused of many things but hardly the act of homosexuality.”

Conference Panel on Reducing False Allegations

Dr Mark Smith:

Basically Susanne got in touch with me a couple of years ago now saying that she had all this alternative story on this Savile case that she was starting to blog about and that she wanted to give it over to a good home.

So Ros, myself and a couple of my colleagues at Edinburgh actually managed to get some money from the Economic and Social Research Council to collate Susanne’s information.

pg 33

http://www.factuk.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/FACTion-6.1-web-version.pdf

Here’s another version:

From convicted paedophile/PIE member Tom O’Carroll:

Yes, Anna, or Susanne, is right at the heart of this story. Her wonderful, detailed, sceptical analyses of the claims against Savile have been highlighted here at Heretic TOC on several occasions, so I am sure we will all be delighted to hear that her work has won academic appreciation and government funding for a follow-up project.

In 2013  Anna Raccoon  sent an email to Professor Viviene Cree at the Edinburgh University School of Social and Political Science, explaining the situation and saying she hoped the university would provide a good home for her archive. That summer the Economic and Social Research Council activated its Urgency Grants Mechanism to form a research team for the recovery and collation of documents and the information stored on Anna Raccoon’s computer in the Dordogne. The full story of the research team and its project are set out in the Lancashire Magazine’s article and is recommended reading.

Hi Steve. Can you tell me where to locate this resource? Thanks.

Hi there. Best to contact the lead researcher, Mark Smith. Details here:

Career History

I worked and managed in residential school and care settings and in secure accommodation over a period of almost 20 years.

Mark is Head of Social Work and Senior Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh.

He spent almost 20 years as a practitioner and manager in List D schools/secure accommodation, and his PhD was essentially an oral history charting changing discourses of care in Scottish residential schools.

He has research and writing interests across a wide range of residential child care policy and practice, especially around concepts of care and upbringing. He has a particular interest in European models of social pedagogy and in applying these in a Scottish context.

How I came to be in this field
My mum and dad both went into teaching later in life and I was minded to follow them in that direction. History teachers, though, were ten-a-penny when I graduated so I worked in a bar for a while. I then responded to a job advert for a temporary residential social worker. I think the school needed some younger legs for its football team, which was run by an aging though still mad keen Head of Education. So I got taken on and as so often happens, I stayed. During my time there I took time out to do social work training at the University of Stirling, where I came across Leon Fulcher, who was Director of Social Work Education there. Fifteen years or so later Leon, who by that stage had moved to New Zealand, was responsible for putting me in touch with Thom Garfat, who has nagged me ever since to produce a monthly column for CYC-Online.
Favourite cyc experience
I’ve had a few. In 1990 a couple of colleagues and myself took a group of boys to the World cup in Italy. Overall that probably rates as my favourite experience. I wrote about it in one of my CYC-Online columns: see http://www.cyc-net.org/cycol-0608-smith.html

I was brought up and remain a Catholic and have encountered enough good priests along the way to keep me clinging to the Church’s social teaching if not always other aspects of Catholicism.

The De La Salle Brothers, with whom I worked for 8 years provided my formative experiences in child and youth care. Frank Rochford, the Head of Education and part-time football team manager mentioned above, was the wisest boss and colleague. Eddie McCabe and Onanda Randall, both sadly now dead, are the most charismatic figures I have come across – they touched lives.

Leon Fulcher introduced me to the literature on child and youth care and has been immensely supportive ever since. Through Leon I have become part of the wider child and youth care community. I remember one memorable night in Ireland drinking Guinness with Leon, Thom Garfat and Jack Phelan and a group of Irish practitioners.

I have been blessed with intelligent and supportive colleagues wherever I have worked.

Students on the MSc in Residential child care at the University of Strathclyde helped me form or reinforce my views on residential care.

Margaret Jervis aka Clare Jervis

She was journalist for Social Work Today in the 80’s and early 90’s.

A contemporary of Peter Righton

After Peter Righton’s home was raided in 1992, Social Work Today printed this short report.

It’s a strange article in that it fails to mention Righton’s long association with Social Work Today and the dozens of columns that he wrote for the magazine.

Ozzie Man – “Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
annaraccoon.co.uk/2014/11/…/ozzie-man-look-on-my-works-ye-mighty-and-despair/

Nov 5, 2014 – A sorely missed commentator on this blog is Margaret Jervis who had a …. Folk like Peter Righton, doyen of the UK Social Work Establishment …

 

Margaret Jervis:

The Let Our Voices Emerge (LOVE) group and British False Memory Society criticised the commission and claimed the scale of alleged abuse in Ireland was incredulous and caused irreversible damage to those accused.

The claims sparked fury among abuse victims who branded it an outrageous attack against all Irish people.

The Survivors of Child Abuse (SOCA) held a protest against the two groups as they met in Dublin and angrily hit out at claims they had conjured up defective and exaggerated memories.

Margaret Jervis, legal advisor to the False Memory Society, linked Ireland’s large number of outstanding child abuse complaints to the Government’s “open-ended” compensation scheme and its definitions of abuse.

She described the therapy system as “a machine for manufacturing false allegations.”

LOVE promotes a positive image of religious orders in children’s homes and works to protect innocent people accused of abuse.

Founder member Florence Horsman-Hogan said people were being given incentives to exaggerate and fabricate claims of abuse.

“We believe around 30% of abuse allegations in Ireland are false…”

Ms Jervis infuriated genuine victims when she said: “The Irish are great storytellers and many, it seems, are making extreme allegations.

“The further you go back in years with allegations of abuse, the taller the stories become.”

http://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/child-abuse-victims-accused-of-false-claims-134754.html


“Agenda, bias, call it what you will, Margaret, but you are a professional CSA refuter, paid to help deny CSA claims.
I’ve been reading many of your articles and they all, unsurprisingly, have the same theme, dogged denial or discreditation of CSA. Cleveland was a particular interest, many now consider to be a Psyop.
Spin and propaganda is rife in the world of CSA, particularly VIP abuse.”

Clare Jervis‏ @mscjervis

Former staff journalist for Social Work Today

http://www.richardwebster.net/shieldfieldhowdidithappen.html

Richard Webster in 2002 with mention of Margaret Jervis and British False Memory Society.

Mr McKelvie was a child protection manager in Hereford and Worcester and worked on the conviction of paedophile Peter Righton -a former consultant to the National Children’s Bureau.

Righton, who is now dead, was also a founding member of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), before he was convicted of importing child pornography.

…Mr McKelvie said the evidence went further than just Righton and claimed he told police in 2012 there were seven boxes of potential evidence being stored by West Mercia Police. He said the evidence included letters between Righton and other alleged paedophiles.

He said: “I believe that there is strong evidence, and an awful lot of information that can be converted into evidence if it is investigated properly, that there’s been an extremely powerful elite among the highest levels of the political classes for as long as I have been alive – I’m 65 now.

“We are looking at the Lords, we are looking at the Commons, we are looking at the judiciary, we are looking at all institutions where there will be a small percentage of paedophiles and a slightly larger percentage of people who have known about it but have felt that in terms of their own self-interest and self-preservation and for political party reasons it’s been safer for them to cover it up rather than deal with it.”

Interesting read on Social Work Today and Islington connections.

ONE What is it about Islington, that den of iniquity? Here’s an attempt to join a few dots …

TWO Nick Stacey, a Director of Social Services, instructed his staff not to report alleged paedophiles within Kent Social Services.

 

THREE Stacey was very close to Peter Righton. Stacey, formerly a vicar, was based in Maidstone, where Righton also lived for a time.

 

FOUR They cemented their friendship via Social Work Today and were on a steering ctte to train those working with disturbed young people.

FIVE Also in this group of 6 were John Rea Price, Director of Islington for 19 years while every one of its kids’ homes was run by paedos.

SIX When Liz Davies blew the whistle on Islington, Rea Price quickly legged it to become CEO of NCB, also based in Islington.

SEVEN Also close to Righton and Stacey was Chris Andrews, Chair of BASW and another force within SWT alongside Margaret Claire Jervis.

Read here how Andrews rushed to the defence of paedophile Peter Righton:

Chris Andrews, of BASW, described Righton at the time of his arrest as follows: He [Righton] is a highly respected figure within the residential field, particularly working with highly disturbed children. He is very much concerned with therapeutic work in child care’ (cited in Burden and Rose, ‘Porn Squad quiz Child Care Expert’).

EIGHT Margaret Claire Jervis went on to become Barbara Hewson’s close friend and fellow activist in the false allegations campaign.

NINE When Righton was arrested in 1992, Chris Andrews, who spoke for BASW, was one of the first to jump to Righton’s defence.


TEN Incredible correspondence between Chris Andrews and Tom O’Carroll reveals Andrews in his official capacity representing social workers

Here is the nasty Tom O’Carroll in correspondence with Andrews.

So Chris Andrews, GenSec of BASW and close associate of Hewson buddy Claire Jervis, was in contact with PIE and O’Carroll. Well, well, well!

Here again is Jervis associate Andrews writing to O’Carroll, boadly agreeing with PIE:

ELEVEN In it, he supports PIE’s aims and asks to become a subscriber to their magazine , Magpie.

TWELVE Magpie made no attempt to disguise its aims, even containing pages of adverts for paedophiles to link up and share chiildren.

 

Complimentary tickets to PIE event from convicted paedo Tom O’Carroll to Chris Andrews of BASW, colleague of Hewson friend Claire Jervis.

I wonder how close Jervis herself was to Righton and PIE?

Cleveland – Savile was there. Who sent him? Ha! Your little chum told me fuckers! False allegations  my left foot! Lost the passwords, Liar

Cleveland, two nonces in family?

Bet you didn’t know that! Boxes of proof. Cleveland CSA. Now let me think – who was it that was involved in Cleveland? It’ll come to me...

Dame Alun Roberts‏ @ciabaudo

Who vetted evidence for Clarke Osbourne in the Cleveland case, Gin Goblin? I hear many boxes were returned to McKenna so they needed help!

I’m told many boxes were returned containing too-hot-to-handle letters, including correspondence between Savile and BigEars re Cleveland.


Wonder where all Jimmy Savile’s diaries have gone? Why was Savile in Cleveland?

 You know if you have evidence of a crime and you hide it? Deliberately. Is that perverting the course of justice?

The diaries are vital evidence and could lead to other potential abusers that are alive.

 

Indeed, they were vital to his movements. Did police retrieve them from his secretary’s garage? Or were they given back to the family?

Diaries last seen in Savile Documentary when his Stoke Mandeville Secretary took them home to her garage. Where are they now?

 

Would the founding director of Radio Pennine, Richard Denby, have known Jimmy Savile, a man with strong links to several radio stations?

Sir Richard Denby’s niece Barbara Hewson allegedly met up with Jimmy Savile’s niece Amanda McKenna (who was named in Jimmy Savile’s will.

AnnaStillHereRaccoon @AnnaRaccoon2017

who they are so when they try to write about JK they will have the same treatment I’ve had. Not hide behind false names. They call him ‘Sir’ Same as Savile. They had meeting up in Leeds. Amanda, Johnny, Hewson, rabbit don’t know about moor or jervis, can’t remember.

Very interesting that @AnnaRaccoon2017 is not retracting her claim that the Gin Goblin (Barbara Hewson) met with Amanda McKenna, Savile’s niece, in Leeds!

Equally interesting that the Gin Goblin has NOT denied that this meeting took place.

Jerry Sadowitz performance from 1987 where he describes Jimmy Savile as a danger to children…

‘There have been serious allegations of child abuse in Cleveland. To my mind there is only one way to find out whether this is true or not and that’s to . . . CALL IN JIMMY SAVILE! You can’t afford to f* about! Bring in an expert!* Am I right? A friend of mine reckons Jimmy Savile is a paedophile. Rubbish — he’s a child-bender! That’s why he does all the f**** charity work: it’s to gain public sympathy for when his f***** case comes up.’

That show was called Total Abuse. And it was. Unrepeatable jokes about Princess Diana, Terry Waite, Norman Tebbit, Nelson Mandela.

One presumes he had heard the rumours and was bold enough to put them out there. The point is, what about the rest of them?

If Sadowitz, a fringe comic with no connections to TV or radio at the time, had heard enough to joke about Savile in 1987, it is fair to presume his more famous contemporaries knew, too. This would include people who have done some serious moralising in the media of late.

Cleveland: Unspeakable Truths

The headline summed it up: “Is this the film that should never have been made ?”.

Just as telling was that the article under it – in the TV Times – was the only national press coverage of the film. Ten years after the Cleveland Child Abuse Crisis not a single newspaper reported on a documentary which told – for the first time – the truth about what had happened to the children at the heart of a “scandal” which had gripped and divided the entire country. Not for nothing was the film called “Cleveland: Unspeakable Truths”.

For those too young to recall it – and for those who still do – it’s worth recalling the events as they unfolded.

In the spring of 1987, 121 children from the (then) county of Cleveland – an area of some 583 square km and including the economically depressed towns of Hartlepool, Redcar and Middlesbrough – were taken into temporary local authority care on suspicion of having been sexually abused. Many – in fact the majority – of the children were very young: most were pre-pubescent and in some cases so young (or developmentally delayed) as to be pre-verbal.

This was not just the biggest sexual abuse case Britain had then encountered but the very first involving multiple victims and multiple perpetrators. Others – Rochdale, Orkney, Broxtowe – would follow on in quick succession, but Cleveland was the first and it set the template.

Newspaper coverage that spring led readers to believe that the children had been “snatched” from their parents as the result of a new and untested physical diagnosis – Reflex Anal Dilatation. The press – led by the Daily Mail – reported that two paediatricians, Dr Marietta Higgs and Dr Geoffrey Wyatt, who had recently arrived at Middlesbrough General Hospital had begun using RAD to diagnose sexual abuse on children who had been brought to the hospital for petty and unrelated problems – “a child with a sore finger” became the familiar trope of these stories.

Worse, or so the papers claimed, RAD involved looking up inside children’s bottoms and was a new and “experimental” technique. Cleveland’s senior police surgeon – a local GP called Alistair Irvine, made a series of statements to the media in which he damned both RAD and Drs Higgs and Wyatt. He was backed by local MP Stuart Bell who gave a succession of highly inflammatory interviews to local television stations.

The media response was swift and overwhelming. Reporters from national newspapers, radio and television descended on Middlesbrough. The Daily Mail alone sent seven. And what were these journalists looking for ? One thing and one thing only – “innocent parents” wrongly parted from their children. And these parents – aided by Stuart Bell who had become their self-appointed champion – quickly told (and frequently sold) their stories. In a matter of weeks Cleveland went from being a small local story to a national “scandal”. All the papers and broadcasters repeated the parents claims and Stuart Bell’s allegations, and viciously attacked the paediatricians. They, along with Cleveland Council’s most senior child abuse advisor Sue Richardson, were ordered by their employers not to give any interviews or make any comment to the media.

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

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

By the time the enquiry report was close to publication I had made a high-profile documentary (and written a book) about child pornography. I approached Marietta Higgs to ask if she would, on the day of publication, be interviewed by me for ITN News. After a week of negotiation it was agreed that she would do one television interview (with me), one radio interview for Woman’s Hour and speak to one newspaper (The Guardian).

I was freelance and arranged to do the interview at the studios of Tyne Tees, ITV’s franchise in the north-east. It would be quicker to feed the piece down to ITN from Newcastle than to film it and bike the tape down to London.

I read the Butler Sloss report from cover to cover. I was – given the prevailing public story – surprised to see that it did not suggest anywhere that Drs Higgs and Wyatt had wrongly diagnosed the 121 children, nor that RAD had been the sole medical evidence in most cases. The report also made clear that no child was recorded as a suspected victim of sexual abuse on medical evidence alone: Butler-Sloss had heard a wealth of testimony from social services indicating that in the vast majority of cases, there were serious concerns about the children’s welfare long before they were seen at Middlesbrough General Hospital.

The report did criticise the doctors for the problems their diagnoses caused at the hospital which had been overwhelmed. It placed restrictions on them working on child abuse cases. But it reserved its most serious and stinging criticism for Stuart Bell MP, who it found had made false ad inflammatory statements about the parents, the children and the doctors – and refused to correct them even when presented with the evidence. It also strongly criticised Alastair Irvine, the police surgeon who had been instrumental in sparking the crisis.

The headlines that afternoon (and the next morning) were extraordinary: they bore no resemblance to the findings of the report. “Sack Her” [Marietta Higgs] was one of the more moderate. I interviewed Dr Higgs – calmly and politely for half an hour. I put to her all the criticism in the report and the complaints made by the parents. She answered honestly and frankly.

While the tape was being fed to London, I was approached by Tyne Tees news journalists and by the news anchor. The former screamed at me that I had “let Higgs off the hook”; the anchor threatened to beat me up. ITN ran the interview that evening.

Eight years later I was working at Yorkshire Television’s documentaries department – the best place in the world to make serious and important films. I had produced one such film two years earlier about a major child sexual abuse network in the United States [Conspiracy of Silence – there are references on this site to this] which had been pulled by its funder, The Discovery Channel. Perhaps that should have warned me.

I happened to meet Sue Richardson at a child abuse conference during the summer of 1996. In passing she mentioned that she was very concerned about what had happened to the Cleveland children. For the next six months I quietly spoke to as many people involved in the crisis as I could. A picture quickly emerged: many – probably most – of the 121 children had been returned to their parents, even where there was clear evidence of sexual abuse. In an alarming number of cases there was a convicted sex offender living in the house – one of the trigger factors for Sue Richardson’s initial concerns. The court system had broken down under the weight of hostile news reporting: one judge refused to allow evidence “relating to children’s bottoms” in his court room. Children had been sent back to parents about whom there was a lengthy history of concern. And then there was RAD itself.

It turned out that this was not some new and experimental technique, as alleged by the police surgeon and Stuart Bell, but was more than 100 years old and was formally included in the Association of Police Surgeons’ own manual as a diagnostic tool raising suspicions of sexual abuse and requiring further enquiries if it was observed.

Late in 1997, with the wholehearted agreement of Yorkshire Television’s Head of Documentaries, I pitched the idea for a documentary about Cleveland to Channel 4. It agreed to commission the film and we went into production: Channel 4 was to pay to Yorkshire TV the sum of £150,00 to produce it and a first instalment was transferred to the company’s coffers.

My colleagues and I spent nearly three months researching and investigating. We met and informally interviewed everyone who would speak to us. Stuart Bell MP and Alastair Irvine refused point blank.

We also advertised for parents who had been caught up in the crisis. Only two came forward: a mother whose children had been sexually abused by their father (he was convicted of the abuse) and ho had tried – in vain – to get her story heard by reporters back in 1987, and a couple whose children had been among the first to be taken into care. We were also contacted by a young woman from the area who had been sexually abused by her father at the time but who was not part of the 121 taken into care.

At some point a large brown parcel arrived for us at Yorkshire TV’s studios. Anonymously-sent, it contained all the social service evidence relating to the 121 children which had been presented in camera to Butler-Sloss. This posed a dilemma: although the children’s identities had been hidden by code letters in these documents, simply by receiving them – let alone broadcasting their contents -we were committing a serious offence. Yet the evidence in the documents clearly answered the question Butler-Sloss had been forced to duck: had these children been abused ? The papers showed that the children had long histories of involvement with social services and painstakingly documented injuries. In many cases a convicted paedophile was living in their houses, and many had made very convincing disclosures of sexual activity with adults. In the end, and with Yorkshire TV’s backing, we decided they were too important to throw away.

We drove to Northallerton on a Wednesday evening, ready to begin filming the following day. At 6pm I was phoned by Yorkshire Television’s Head of Documentaries: the company’s Director of Programmes – essentially his direct boss – had issued an instruction that we were to abandon all filming and that I was to tell Channel 4 that Yorkshire TV would not make the documentary. It turned out that Stuart Bell MP had leaned on the Director of Programmes. It was a surreal – and deeply disturbing – moment. When I spoke to Channel 4 its commissioning editor couldn’t believe his ears.

Happily, Chanel 4 was then a far more serious broadcaster than it is now. Within days it had brokered a deal whereby my own production company would make the film; I would take leave of absence from Yorkshire TV to do so, and – under pain of having its lucrative daytime Countdown quiz-programme terminated by Channel 4 – Yorkshire TV would then take me back on a longer contract. The row even made the front page of the industry’s trade magazine.

But our troubles were nothing compared to those of Drs Higgs and Wyatt or Sue Richardson. The health authorities for whom the paediatricians worked refused them permission to be interviewed, and Sue Richardson was informed by her then employer – a child welfare charity – that if she appeared in it she would be dismissed. She resigned instead – and her interview was vital in conveying the truth about Cleveland.

Two telling sections of the film summed up the entire crisis. The first was a section which showed file footage of one of the Cleveland parents making an emotional appeal on a breakfast television programme: in it – and egged on by host Anne Diamond – he said he had never abused his children and demanded they be allowed home. Yet the truth was that he had been convicted of buggering his children – sometimes in front of his wife: apparently that truth was ignored by Ms Diamond and her team.

The second was the discovery that in the wake of the Butler-Sloss enquiry, the Department of Health ordered all records of all the children as a group to be destroyed. When we asked for an explanation, the Department refused to comment.

Just what was Cleveland really about ? For me it was clear: it was about the plight of children – some just toddlers – who were abused and – briefly – rescued; then re-abused by a child protection system which could not bear the pressure from politicians and press. The truth of what happened to those children was too difficult to hear. Which is why we called the film Cleveland: Unspeakable Truths.

And her husband, a judge in KENYA

News of the World 17 July 1988

“The News of the World carried an article about Butler-Sloss’s husband.

Under the front-page headlines “Cleveland Judge Sex Scandal” and “Dame’s randy spouse frolics with vice girls” was an article reporting that he was a judge in Kenya and was ‘associating’ with prostitutes.”

http://www.c-g.org.uk/issues/shame/debs/content.htm

Asked who instigated the Cleveland inquiry in 2003 Lady Butler-Sloss replied: “I think it was my brother actually as Lord Chancellor.”

A recently discovered article from Capital Gay magazine reveals how libel threats were used to silence newspapers who reported on the Elm Guest House paedophile ring. The Attorney General, Sir Michael Havers, would personally investigate complaints from lawyers representing Elm Guest House.

Sir Michael Havers

Sir Michael Havers

Sir Michael Havers played a leading role in theSir Peter Hayman cover-up, and told Geoffrey Dickens not to name the paedophile diplomat in Parliament. Havers argued that Hayman should have retained his anonymity, and didn’t think the British public needed to know that powerful Establishment figures abused children.

Scotland Yard denied the allegations made by the Daily Express that the guest house’s visitor list included three MPs and a member of Buckingham Palace staff. A spokesman for Elm Guest House told Capital Gay “these were professional business people. We are talking about barristers, doctors, a couple of priests and a vicar”.

We now know that these “professional people” were almost certainly all child abusers. One of the barristers who visited Elm Guest House was Colin Peters QC, who was later jailed for his part in “Britain’s biggest child sex ring” which had over 150 victims. One of the priests who visited the guest house was Father Tony McSweeney, who was arrested by Operation Fernbridge in January.

It’s clear that Scotland Yard, Sir Michael Havers, and the Elm Guest House lawyers were all following the same script. It’s easy to blame the press for their part in the cover-up, but they were up against the most senior police and law officers in the country.

The most striking thing about the article is the strenuous denial of any link to the murder/disappearance of Vishal Mehrotra and Martin Allen, both of whom disappeared not far from Rocks Lane bewtween 1979 and 1981. Vishal Mehrotra went missing on the night of the Royal Wedding in 1981, when the Elm Guest House paedophiles were having a ‘Kings and Queens party’.

Scotland Yard had earlier confirmed to the Express that they were investigating connections between the missing boys and Elm Guest House. “Scotland Yard is expected to reopen files on the murder of one boy and he disappearance of another in their investigation into a VIP homosexual vice network in London.” Full article

Just a couple of months later these connections were “absolute rubbish”…

The retired judge leading the Westminster abuse probe has revealed she was appointed to run a previous sex abuse inquiry by her late brother, Lord Havers, when he was Lord Chancellor.

Baroness Butler-Sloss has been under scrutiny over her suitability to investigate claims of a child-sex ring at Westminster because of a potential conflict of interest over her Establishment connections.

Yesterday, it was claimed she had kept allegations about a bishop out of a report on a paedophile scandal because she “cared about the church”.

Now, she faces fresh criticism over her admission of the key role of Lord Havers in the Cleveland child sex abuse inquiry in 1987 which she led.

Asked who instigated the Cleveland inquiry in 2003 Lady Butler-Sloss replied: “I think it was my brother actually as Lord Chancellor.”

Tory child abuse whistleblower: ‘Margaret Thatcher knew all about underage sex ring among ministers’

Former activist Anthony Gilberthorpe says he sent Thatcher a 40-page dossier in 1989 accusing Cabinet members of abusing underage boys

Anthony Gilberthorpe says he sent her a 40-page dossier in 1989 accusing Cabinet members of abusing underage boys at drug-fuelled conference parties.

Mr Gilberthorpe, who claims he was ordered to recruit boys for the ministers, says he posted the “graphic” allegations to Mrs Thatcher after befriending her.

Mr Gilberthorpe, who was a young Tory hopeful when he was asked to recruit for the parties, said: “I outlined exactly what I had witnessed and informed her I intended to expose it.

“I had met Mrs Thatcher on several occasions and even presented her with a birthday cake in 1983. I believed she had to know.”

He said that being overlooked for the safe Tory seat of Gloucester in April 1986 made up his mind to shop the ministers. “I believe I was stitched up and it gave me an insight into the treacherous nature of the party,” he added.

“It was one of the reasons I decided reveal what I’d witnessed. I made it very clear to Mrs Thatcher most trusted ministers had been at these parties with boys who were between 15 and 16.

“I also told her of the amount of illegal drugs like cocaine that were consumed.

“I underlined the names of Keith Joseph, Rhodes Boyson and one MP still serving today. I also said I had seen Michael Havers at a party in Blackpool held at the hotel pool in 1983.”

Stuart Bell listed on Elm Guest House list

The name “Stuart Bell” appears on the Elm House documents, though it is not clear if it refers to the late MP for Middlesbrough.

He chose to resign his post after the Cleveland child abuse scandal which occupied two years of his life, after making unsubstantiated accusations of ‘clinical error’ against local paediatricians and child sexual abuse specialists.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuart_Bell

He then played a pivotal role in the passage of the Children Act which, he said, replaced “confusing, unfair” laws. Sir Stuart helped draft the new law and was instrumental in its passage.

he was appointed Second Church Estates Commissioner to handle relations between church and state.

http://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/local-news/stuart-bell—miners-son-3669656

Neil Kinnock brought Bell on to the front bench as a Northern Ireland spokesman.

By his mid-30s miner’s son Stuart Bell, , was a millionaire international lawyer and a Name at Lloyd’s with homes and offices in Paris and London, and had written his first novel. The book was a raunchy semi-autobiographical story of little literary merit…

Intent on becoming “a writer” he relocated to Paris, where he worked as a clerk in a law firm among whose clients was the European office of Walt Disney.

With such a prestigious client he quickly found others, including Hewlett Packard and General Motors, and started to specialise in the lucrative area of European trade and international tariffs. His success was speedy and he expanded to offices in the exclusive Avenue Montaigne, premises that had been the wartime headquarters of American Forces (complete with an “Oval Office”).

Although he had borrowed a house in the constituency from his Daily Mirror friend while contesting Hexham, and as a city councillor in Newcastle upon Tyne (1981-83), his jet-setting pursuit of politics soon started to eat into his fortune. First he had to sacrifice his magnificent country home (swimming pool, tennis court) in Chantilly, outside Paris, then his young mistress, and finally his senior partnership in a firm that employed more than a dozen lawyers, and along with it his apartment (Eiffel Tower view) in Avenue Montaigne. Until his election, when he became entitled to an MP’s salary of £15,308, he was reduced to seeking work as a barrister on the Northern Circuit.

Wilf Proudfoot was Member of Parliament for Cleveland, his secretary, Christine Holman (the future Christine Hamilton)

Radio 270 was also attacked in Parliament. Mr Proudfoot had previously been a Conservative MP and, as someone with an interest in politics, offered late night airtime on his station to various politicians. Harvey Proctor, a student at the University of York and Chairman of the University Conservative Association, was invited to produce a number of half-hour political programmes for Radio 270. Right-wing Tory MP Patrick Wall took part in one show during which he spoke in favour of recognising the illegal Smith regime in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Government MPs were incensed but Mr Proudfoot defended his actions by saying that Labour representatives had been offered equal time, but had turned it down. The political broadcasts continued. Harvey Proctor later became an MP himself, representing Basildon from 1979 to 1983 and Billericay from 1983 to 1987, before a sex scandal ended his Parliamentary career.

Heath’s  autobio covers the fact that he used Young Conservatives for ‘information gathering and propoganda’ assistance.

Radio 270’s office was run by Maggie Lucas (now Maggie White) and, DJ Noel Miller’s then wife, Carole. Maggie casts her mind back:

Maggie Lucas.
“I had previously worked for (Managing Director) Wilf Proudfoot when he was Member of Parliament for Cleveland and this was how I came to work for 270 some months after it went to air. In the interest of economy the office had moved into the large family room at the Proudfoots’ Scarborough home, adjacent to the purpose-built offices of the Proudfoot Supermarkets.

Savile and Cleveland – Saltburn

Saltburn fixed it for Jimmy.

Sir Jimmy replied and said: “Saltburn, Teddy’s Nook and the Kellys was my first taste of the grand life. Such space inside and out, such views.

The Cottage, Teddys Nook, Marine Parade, Saltburn-by-the-sea, Cleveland

It was JS’ cousins (the Kelly family) who rented ‘The Cottage’ in Saltburn – and he was a frequent visitor apparently. It is actually a mini-mansion in spite of its modest name. The Cottage is nick-named ‘Teddy Nook’ because in the 1870s Lillie Langtry entertained the future Edward VII there.

link

Lillie Langtry

She was also known for herrelationships with noblemen, including the Prince of Wales, the Earl of Shrewsbury, and Prince Louis of Battenberg.

Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg, was a British naval officer and German prince related to members of the British Royal Family.

He married a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, and was the father of Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma, who also served as First Sea Lord from 1954 to 1959. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, consort of Queen Elizabeth II, is his grandson.

In April 1879, Langtry had a short affair with Prince Louis of Battenberg

Lillie Langtry allegedly bore him an illegitimate daughter, Jeanne Marie

In June 1880, she became pregnant. Her husband was not the father; she led Prince Louis to believe that he was.

Prince Louis’ son, Earl Mountbatten of Burma, had always maintained that his father was the father of Jeanne Marie.[23]

Langtry’s father was Rector and Dean of Jersey he nevertheless earned an unsavoury reputation as a ‘ladies man’ fathering illegitimate children by various of his parishioners

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lillie_Langtry

Langtry was a regular in high society- and counted Oscar Wilde and Arthur Conan Doyle as close friends

Langtry became an American citizen in 1897 and died in Monte Carlo in 1929 aged 75.

She is rumoured to have been the inspiration for the character of Irene Adler in Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes tale A Scandal In Bohemia.

AMONG the women who were to succeed Lillie as the antidote to Bertie’s boredom was the voluptuous Mrs Alice Keppel, daughter of a baronet, whose husband’s forbearance was rewarded by membership of the Royal Victorian Order.

Our own Prince of Wales, Bertie’s great-great grandson, is not a serial philanderer – for would not the tabloids tell us? – but it is a neat symmetry that Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles, cited by Princess Diana as the third person in her unhappy marriage, should be Alice Keppel’s great-granddaughter

Teddy Nook

http://northeasthistorytour.blogspot.com/2012/01/teddys-nook-nz666216.html

Sir Jimmy Savile, who died in October aged 84, had a strong link to Saltburn, in particular to the large villa overlooking the pier known as Teddy’s Nook. He praised his friendship with the family who owned the house to his success in his career. It was owned in the 1930s by Bill Kelly, of Middlesbrough stockbrokers Stancliffe’s, and his wife was Jimmy’s aunt Meg. Jimmy, who then lived in a workaday part of Leeds, used to visit Teddy’s Nook and enjoyed holidays with his cousins, as the Kelly’s had a large family. Mike Morrissey, of Saltburn, discovered the link when Jimmy replied to a letter he wrote to him via St James’s Hospital, Leeds, where Jimmy worked as a volunteer.Saltburn, Teddy’s Nook and the Kelly’s was my first taste of the grand life. Such space, inside and out, such views,” wrote the larger-than-life celebrity, charity fund-raiser, and marathon runner. “Auntie Meg was my mother’s sister. By a fluke she married someone called Kelly, the same as her maiden name. “Coming from a low-income family (in those days were were called `poor’) the Kelly household had a great effect on me. “One of my first pre-teen feelings was `If it’s possible for them, surely it must be possible for me.’ “And so it proved, but my bit of success would have been impossible had I not seen it at Saltburn first. All my cousins were quite super and all in all it was a magic experience in a magic place.” The PS to his letter was:I often sneak into town disguised as Robert de Niro.” Mike wrote to Sir Jimmy because he was researching Teddy’s Nook for a talk he gave to Saltburn and District Retired Men’s Forum in about 1995. “I’ve always felt his memory of the Kelly family and its effect on his career was remarkable,” said Mike. “His letter was written on the other side of my note to him. He signed it with a smily face in the loop of the “J” in his signature. Great!”

Cleveland police refused to investigate signs of anal abuse and publicly condemned doctors and social services for intervening. The Government (Butler Sloss’ brother Michael Havers) called in a judge, Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, to sort it out.

Contrary to myth, her report did not dispute doctors’ clinical findings of anal abuse.

In Cumbria, as in Cleveland, the police not only did nothing, they did it with determination – they ignored the abuse alarm raised by the forensic pathologist and resisted a mandatory Serious Case Review.

REPORT by Barbara Hewson : Campaigning organisation FACT (Falsely Accused Carers and Teachers)’s Spring Conference on Wrongful Accusations of Abuse was held on May 30th, under the aegis of Cardiff Law School.

The day concluded with a panel discussion and Q & A involving me, the criminal barrister and blogger Matthew Scott (here), Dr Mark Smith of Edinburgh University, former Duncroft resident Susanne Cameron-Blackie (who blogs as ‘Anna Raccoon’), and leading criminal defence solicitor, Chris Saltrese. The subject was how to reduce false allegations.

Only just seeing this today ! Good reporting Barbara (Hewson) especially the stories about Police ‘trawling’ for ‘victims’, appalling.
My only gripe would be that neither Mark Smith or ‘Anna Raccoon’ appear to have mentioned the University research project relating to the Savile claims.Much talkof ‘post Savile’ but, he, or rather, his loved ones, have had to endure three years of, what many now believe are ‘false’ claims repeated in the media on an almost daily beside.
Several bloggers including myself have been investigating the Savile claims for more than two years. A fact noted here –

‘So began a three year unofficial investigation into the Duncroft allegations that had sparked the 2012 nationwide Savile Scandal.

Cameron-Blackie collated further information gathered by three other blogging investigators known as Moor Larkin, Rabbitaway and The Rockphiles.’

Here’s the link the more folk know the better. Shame no-one bothered to mention it on the day !

Mister Hardcastle, it transpires, is quite a fan of Anna Racoon aka Susanne Nundy, who has been described on various internet forums as an MI5 disinformation agent. He gives her a hearty recommendation on his website.

Apparently convicted paedophile Jonathan King is also a fan of Mister Hardcastle’s articles and has brought them to the attention of Alan Rusbridger, editor-in-chief of The Guardian :-

Make of that what you will.

Alan Rusbridger & convicted paedophile Tom O’Carroll

2013

Below is a comment left on this blog by the source of Tom Watson’s PMQ about “a powerful political paedophile ring”. It raises many questions about why The Guardian are still not covering the national scandal of children procured from care homes being abused by rich and poweful paedophiles, while at the same time giving a platform to paedophile activist Tom O’Carroll. When reading this bear in mind that Tom O’Carroll has a conviction for possession of a collection of 50,000 images and films of children as young as 6 being raped and tortured. This was not mentioned in The Guardian’s coverage.

I feel obliged to share with you my correspondence with Alan Rusbridger on the matter and let your followers come to their own conclusions

On January 3rd Jon Henley wrote an article in the Guardian entitled ” Paedophilia : bringing dark desires to light

I wrote to the Editor of the Guardian, Alan Rusbridger, the following :-

I was a Guardian reader for over 40 years until you made the decision to publish an article described by Tom O’Carroll on his website as ” the first I have ever seen in a mainstream media outlet giving significant coverage to research suggesting that paedophilia is not intrinsically harmful.That was superb, confirming my long held view that Alan Rusbridger is the best ever editor of the world’s greatest English – language newspaper. ”

O’Carroll goes in to great detail on his website about the actual process by which you and Jon Henley made contact with him – what a disgrace you are, allowing this man to view it as a great triumph for him because that is exactly how I viewed it despite your pathetic attempt to justify publishing the article and Henley’s response to Tom Watson MP. ( see Tom Watson’s blog )

Tom O’Carroll is a clever but very dangerous and evil man.

I am as qualified as anyone after 37 years working in child protection and specialising for many years in the investigation of child sexual abuse and the investigation of highly organised rings to know the full extent of the harm done to children and young people by predatory paedophiles like O’Carroll

I am the person who contacted Tom Watson which led to his PMQ on October 24th last year. Before Christmas I agreed to be interviewed by one of your most senior journalists – that now feels like a big mistake given your coverage of O’Carroll’s views and what came across to me as an attempt to find positives in what is one of the most heinious crimes in any society.

( I provided the Guardian with all the information I passed to Tom Watson but not one word of it has appeared in print by them to date )

You should be heading a campaign to close down sites like O’Carroll’s and I strongly believe he should be arrested for the content alone. The almost total lack of coverage by the British media of the events leading up to the setting up of Operation Fernbridge, despite the availability of numerous potential stories that are not sub judice linked to high level historic abuse, is exceptionally worrying.

Paedophiles like Savile, Peter Morrison, Cyril Smith, Sir Peter Hayman were so confident of establishment support they didn’t need to operate in secret they could be as indiscreet as they wished knowing that even if they came to the attention of the Police nothing would come of it and the full weight of the Attorney General and The Director of Public Prosecutions and their underlings would be brought in to play ” in the public interest ”

In what way was ” our ” collective national security protected by the security services when they covered up Cyril Smith’s systematic abuse of children ? ”

The vast majority of the population of this country know that national security when used in these circumstances has absolutely nothing to do with ” our ” collective security but everything to do with being a cover for sustaining the power of the wealthy and privileged.

Your newspaper and you and Jon Henley in particular have very badly let that vast majority down – after Savile we had the opportunity for this to be a watershed moment but the backlash started by the allegedly mistaken identity of a certain individual has gathered momentum and if I had been told that the Guardian would be in the vanguard of that backlash I would never have believed it ”

Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger

Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger

This is the reply I received from Alan Rusbridger :-

” Thanks for your letter.

I thought Jon Henley wrote an intelligent piece about the mixed academic and medical opinion on paedophilia.

I did not take it to be in any way a defence of child sexual abuse or paedophilia.

I think it desirable, not irresponsible, to write seriously about in-depth research into this disturbing area of life.

I was interested to read about how thinking had changed over time and to hear from a range of experts who deal with offenders

It was,to my mind, a calm and informative piece.

Tom O’Carroll’s speculation as to the genesis of the piece is wide of the mark. We did briefly meet at the Guardian’s readers’ week-end earlier last year. But this had no connection with Jon Henley’s piece.

You will be aware that the Guardian was responsible for exposing the case of mistaken identity to which you refer in your final paragraph. I don’t accept that the paper is in the ” vanguard” of any ” backlash ” after the unmasking of Savile. Our article about Lord McAlpine was of a peice with the intelligent approach that Henley showed in his own article.This is, I accept, a difficult subject and the Gurdian will continue to cover it thoroughly and calmly ”

I contacted Alan Rusbridger a week ago to advise him that I intended to post our respective views on your website
I have not received a response so must assume he has no objection

Set in a wooded and pastoral countryside, Ditchley lies twelve miles north of Oxford, and within easy reach of Heathrow Airport and Central London. The original owners, the Lee Family, had hosted English monarchs there since the days of Queen Elizabeth I. The use of the house as an international conference centre aptly reflects its history and its transatlantic heritage. Built in the eighteenth century, this residence has served as the site of a number of distinguished international meetings, most notably during World War II when it occasionally became the weekend retreat of Sir Winston Churchill.

Ralph Underwager and the Cleveland child abuse inquiry

Most people’s memory of the Cleveland child abuse scandal in 1987 would be of a nationionwide media storm involving ‘falsely accused’ parents whose children had been taken away by over-zealous social workers who had misdiagnosed child sexual abuse.

But the truth was much darker. The majority of the children had been sexually abused and many were subsequently made to return to the homes they were abused in. The Department of Health “actively withheld and concealed” evidence from an independent panel which showed that 93 of the 121 Cleveland children had been found by the courts to be at risk of abuse.

 

In 1989, the Department of Health destroyed all records relating to the children. Within two years of the original controversy, many of the children had been re-referred to social services.

Frank Cook, Labour MP for Stockton on Tees, said: “I’m astonished and dumbfounded. Had we known what I have only just now learnt, then it would have made a major difference to the Children’s Act and to attitudes to abuse”.

The Butler-Sloss inquiry into the Cleveland case heard evidence from an American ‘child abuse expert’ called Ralph Underwager. He spoke out on behalf of the ‘falsely accused’ parents and many of his recommendations made their way into the Butler-Sloss report. The Butler-Sloss report, as Frank Cook pointed out, went on to influence both Children’s Act and also the subsequent handling of countless child abuse inquiries.

 

Underwager_RalphA few years later, Ralph Underwager was exposed by an interview he gave to a European paedophile magazine called Paidika, in which he said child sexual abuse was “God’s Will”.

Here are some extracts from the interview, which can be found here:

Underwager: Paedophiles can boldly and courageously affirm what they choose. They can say that what they want is to find the best way to love….Paedophiles can make the assertion that the pursuit of intimacy and love is what they choose. With boldness they can say, “I believe this is in fact part of God’s will

Cleveland Police investigating ’20 to 30′ historic child sexual abuse cases

Force confirm that they are looking into “historic cases” in the wake of coverage of high profile sexual abuse cases

2014

Retired senior judge Elizabeth Butler-Sloss was named as the chairwoman of a wide-ranging review into historical child sex abuse.

Baroness Butler-Sloss led the Cleveland child abuse inquiry in the late 1980s.

However after pressure because of her family links with the case – including a call from former Redcar MP and solicitor general Vera Baird to stand down – the former judge confirmed she would withdraw from the post.

Butler-Sloss had faced intense criticism because her brother, the late Sir Michael Havers, was attorney general during the 1980s when reports of child abuse were allegedly not examined properly.

Islington Council orders new inquiry into ex-mayor’s alleged pro-paedophile past

21 September 2017

The proposed inquiry will explore evidence that the councillor who oversaw social services as Islington’s horrific abuse scandal came to light in the early 1990s had been a member of a pro-paedophile organisation.

The Gazette reported earlier this year on ex-councillor Sandy Marks’ alleged links to a clandestine group called Fallen Angels, which was supportive of paedophilia and lobbied for paedophile rights.

She denies these allegations.

Now a top barrister has said the Gazette’s investigation calls into question the validity of an earlier independent report into child abuse at Islington’s care homes, the White Report

Town hall takes step toward reopening investigation…but survivors’ groups urge caution

Islington Council has appointed a pair of top lawyers to examine evidence linking former mayor Sandy Marks to a pro-paedophile campaign group in the early 1980s, and whether a government inquiry into the rape and assault of children over at least three decades could have been skewed.

James Goudie QC and Holly Stout have been asked to advise the council whether or not this newspaper’s investigation “could reasonably be said to call in question the integrity of the White Report” – the Department of Health’s 1995 probe that found no evidence of organised child abuse, but heavily criticised the council’s response to the allegations.

Dr Davies greeted the lawyers’ appointment with caution, pointing out Mr Goudie QC – a deputy high court judge – is acting for Lambeth Council over its own kids’ abuse scandal. Lambeth admitted liability last year for the abuse that took place at the Shirley Oaks home, but survivors were dismayed this week to discover the council – under Mr Goudie QC’s direction – would administer the payout scheme itself instead of appointing an independent panel as is usual.

In addition, eligibility criteria for receiving payouts mean many survivors will miss out, according to a spokesperson for Lambeth survivors’ group Shirley Oaks Survivors’ Association.

As survivors, SOSA is appalled that this man is being selected.”

Dr Davies said: “We were hoping for a QC with a criminal law background, or children’s law – [Mr Goudie’s] background is public administration, which made us think he’s been brought in to defend the council.”

She also questioned the terms of reference, saying: “We wouldn’t have phrased it like that.

“‘Call into question the integrity of the White Report’? We didn’t think it had much integrity. We’ve been criticising it [for years].

“I was the social worker who said 61 children were victims of a network of abuse and [yet] the White Report said there was no evidence of a network. That completely undermined all the work I was doing.”

Dr Davies said she would have preferred the lawyers to examine not just the White Report, and the 13 internal Islington Council probes that led up to it, but the period afterwards at the town hall.

And she said it was vital that the lawyers interviewed social workers and councillors from the time rather than simply carrying out a “paper exercise” – an area in which she believes the White Report failed.

Both Mr Goudie QC and Ms Stout are from the 11 King’s Bench Walk chambers in the City.

Islington’s pro-paedophile activists’ network: Roger Moody and Sandy Marks

n March 1991 Roger Moody, pro-paedophile rights campaigner and paedophile political activist, wrote to the Islington Gazette (address given as Liverpool Road, N1), identifying himself “as a youth worker who until recently worked in a school-based youth project”.

Was Roger Moody employed in Islington as a youth worker based within a school? Which school was he working within? Was Islington Council his employer?

Within 18 months of Moody losing his job, the Evening Standard exposed the extent to which Islington’s children’s homes had been infiltrated by paedophiles, pornographers and pimps.

More on Roger Moody’s pro-paedophile activism and prolific writings and his links with politicians alluded to his in book ‘Indecent Assault’

The third meeting of the Conspiracy Against Public Morals committee (PIE’s legal defence publicists, strategists and fundraisers) gathered on 11 September 1979.

Six months’ previously in April 1979 Moody had been acquitted of 4 counts of indecent assault and 1 count of attempted buggery on a 10 year old boy — with the help of a character witness statement from an MP read out in court for his defence.

CAPM attendees included NCCL’s former and future Gay Rights Officers, Nettie (PIE Member No 70) Pollard and Barry Prothero, PIE Chairman and defendant Tom O’Carroll, Fallen Angels Tim Brown and Sandy Marks (future Islington councillor and Chair of Social Services Committee) and Adrian Fulford (now Lord Justice Adrian Fulford — Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales).

Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 11.11.25

Was Roger Moody the Roger in attendance at the CAPM committee alongside Sandy Marks? If so, was Sandy Marks aware Roger Moody, as an out and proud self-proclaimed paedophile worked with children in Islington and continued to do so until at least 1991? If aware of Moody’s views on the positive benefits paedophiles bring to the social welfare of children when working in child-care roles, did Sandy Marks take any steps once serving on the Social Services Committee from 1982 to ensure Roger Moody’s ability to work with children was curtailed?

James Goudie QC and Holly Stout’s recent report for Islington Council recommends further independent investigation into Sandy Marks and her role in the 1995 White Report, and states that evidence should be examined as to “the nature, extent and duration of Sandy Marks’ involvement in Fallen Angels, and any other pro-paedophile groups;”

Two other pro-paedophile groups with links to Islington were Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) and Paedophile Action for Liberation (PAL), both of which Roger Moody contributed to meetings and newsletters of, hoping to shape their thinking along more radical socialist revolutionary lines.

The extent to which all of these pro-paedophile lobbying groups, including Fallen Angels, were able to gain influence and traction in a council which its own Chief Executive declared “vulnerable to lobbying groups”(1) is the wider context in which to examine Sandy Marks’ conduct, associations and actions, influencers and influence. Therefore Goudie QC’s inclusionary language is to be welcomed. Whether Islington Council listens remains to be seen.

Did Sandy Marks work in Rising Free bookshop?

Rising Free Bookshop was a distributer of alternative books and pamphlets based in Kings Cross.  It was listed in the 1975 book Alternative England and Wales as follows:

IMG_3831

Dear Sandy,

Our paths once crossed at the Rising Free Bookshop a long time ago, but it is also a long time since I exposed the Islington child abuse scandal in 1992. I have, ever since, lived and breathed the ongoing issues which that raised. Even recently, various survivors have come forward to me and I have continued to learn about the vast extent of harm that they experienced. There has never been a survivors group in Islington for the victims of the abuse and so I still remain a contact point for those who come forward. I have been trying to assist some of them in locating their files but sadly it seems most files went missing at the time of the exposé in the early 90s.

Sandy Marks chaired the London Borough’s Childrens Regional Planning Committee during the early 90s.

The well worn Times article below provides the police view in 1993 that wealthy businessmen were under surveillance who were linked to a sex ring abusing young people living in children’s homes in the London Borough of Islington which had been a magnet for ‘child molesters’. In this Times article, Sandy Marks is cited as pledging to sack senior staff if the government proved they had acted unprofessionally. There were some changes made in social services management after the Inquiries.  Very few abusers were also convicted and some are now deceased but I hope that there will soon be a police-led investigation of the information we have from the 90s and also of the information from all the survivors and witnesses who have now come forward to Islington Survivors Network.

I am struggling to understand why my professional work was so despised at the time leaving me in great difficulty in trying to protect the children.

Islington Councils’ “flop” choice of “top” lawyer

Islington Council said it was “shocked and concerned” and promised to set up an inquiry led by a “top” lawyer to examine new evidence relating to a former mayor, Sandy Marks,  pro-paedophile past.

Yet they have chosen a lawyer James Goudie [5] who is acting for Lambeth Council over its own child rape scandal see Islington Council takes step toward reopening kids’ abuse investigation…but survivors’ groups aren’t happy[6]

                                                                     James Goudie QC

If that was not bad enough, child abuse campaigners have long thought that the networks in the two boroughs were connected eg 2013 Were Islington and Lambeth paedophile rings connected? [2]

How can a lawyer possibly investigate the abuse network on one hand and yet also have acted for a culpable party of the abuse network on the other? How can he be seen to be impartial and fair or independent?

Further to that, in this case he is acting for both simultaneously. It is a cut and dried conflict of interest. Goudie should choose to resign. He cannot possibly continue with this conflict of interest. Victims and survivors will not be able to trust him knowing the job he is doing now.

On the offchance that even with his insider knowledge of Lambeth abuse, Goudie does not realise this conflict of interest, I have sent this article to him.

How can the Council leader Watts possibly pretend Goudie is “independent”? He promised “we will appoint an independent QC to examine the evidence…” [4] He is not independent. Simple, choose again.

The terms of reference – what a mess. Everyone knows that Inquiries have many times in the past been deliberately limited by their terms of reference.

The Council appears to be trying to pass off as the parameters of the investigation “to advise the council whether or not this newspaper’s investigation “could reasonably be said to call in question the integrity of the White Report”” [6]

This is not only far too narrow, but is actually absurd. Setting up an inquiry into whether a relatively quick and small but revealing investigation, essentially about 1 person, could reasonably be said to question the integrity of an already discredited Report?

What if the answer is Yes, which already is quite clear, what then? What a waste of time, but perhaps that is the intention?

The terms of reference of the inquiry should be to find out the truth of what happened, to find out the facts.

Sandy Marks was Mayor and Social Services Committee Chair but she also chaired the London Boroughs Regional Planning Committee between 1991-5 which made decisions about putting children into secure units.

However Sandy Marks is just one person who was politically influential at the time. There are many others that need to be looked at.

John Rea Price for example was the Director of Social Services for a long time, 1972-92. He must have some comment to make about this scandal which took place during his time in Islington. Surely he can be helpful to survivors now and reveal what he knows?

There was abuse in 22 Islington homes and foster placements over 40 years with many abusers and facilitators. To have an inquiry into one mayor would appear to be not only  failing the children for which Islington Council had a Duty of Care, but also negligent.

It is surely time that the Inquiries of the 1990’s must be revisited as part of a police led investigation.

This decision has been botched by Islington in an arrogant, ignorant and crass manner.

Councillor Watts “stressed the council today is a “very different organisation” and said child protection is a top priority.”

It does not seem to be.

If there’s one thing the Coon and her Islington buddies ought to be challenging Corbyn on, it’s this and not the NHS

A blind eye to child abuse: Whistleblowers warned Labour leadership favourite Jeremy Corbyn of paedophiles preying on children on his doorstep – but claim he did NOTHING

  • Social workers warned Corbyn that child abuse was rife in his Islington constituency in 1992 
  • ‘We’d been seeing so many 12 to 15-year-olds who were being sexually exploited, we could hardly believe it,’ Liz Davies, one of the five social workers, recalled this week
  • Corbyn never wrote to Davies, or telephoned, to acknowledge their meeting, or thank her for seeking to blow the whistle 

PIE’s founder, Peter Righton (above) - a prominent social worker later prosecuted for importing child pornography from Holland - was put in charge of training courses on which council staff learned how to care for vulnerable children. Righton, who had a flat in the borough (as did PIE’s one-time key member, his friend Morris Fraser) once boasted: ‘Every Islington care home manager knows I like boys from 12’

Self-styled ‘paedophile activist’ Roger Moody

Did the leader of Plaid Cymru give a 'glowing' character reference to a paedophile peace activist in 1979?
In 1979 former social worker turned paedophile libertarian and peace activist, Roger Moody, was acquitted of indecent assault and attempted buggery of a 10 year old boy. His booklet ‘Indecent Assault’ tells of a ‘quite influential”glowing testimonial’ provided by an MP, against party HQ advice.

people of REMEMBER that was + is the MP there + WAS TOLD what was occuring re CHILD RAPES

Timing of Islington/ Sandy Marks story:

It’s also significant …the  Corbyn/Islington connection is central.

This story seems to be surfacing just at the right time to further discredit Jeremy Corbyn pre- election – which means that therroristmay has the full dirt – as do the polticos driving her election campaign…

Former Labour prime minister Tony Blair was regularly painted as being part of a north London “Islington set”.

And asked if he was in fact part of an “Islington elite”, Mr Corbyn replied: “I am very proud to represent Islington North.

“It’s absolutely true, there are people in Islington who buy and drink cappuccino every day and I know many of them.

Jimmy Savile sex abuse: ‘Islington is still covering up’

Two decades on from her expose of sexual abuse in children’s homes, Eileen Fairweather talks to the survivors too scared to go public

Michael Gove has asked Islington Council for details of child abuse in the Seventies and Eighties, a scandal after which it shredded every incriminating file, sacked whistleblowers and smeared victims as mentally ill.

The man’s messages to the little girl sounded sweet. He reminded her that he was the friendly volunteer from the hospital, said he missed his poppet and hoped she’d write back. I found his messages online in a forum abroad for sick children. I don’t know if the child replied to him, and cannot now check, because the disease that hospitalised her has killed her. But I desperately hoped she never answered – this cheery guy is an alleged serial child rapist.

This has been claimed by three traumatised women who once lived in a now-notorious Islington children’s home. The man was allowed to take them for “outings” to the park and an Islington worker’s nearby flat. There he allegedly abused them while the others were forced to watch. The youngest was five. The man is also suspected of procuring little girls from the home for Jimmy Savile.

Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, announced in the Commons last month that the Metropolitan Police has identified 21 special schools and children’s homes in which Savile preyed on youngsters. Mr Gove named most, but said that the Islington home’s identity is unknown. I know its name, and suspect that Islington Council guesses it. Mr Gove trustingly asked the north-London council, exposed in the 1990s for employing paedophiles, pimps and child pornographers at all 12 of its children’s homes, to identify it. But how can Islington be trusted to uncover its own cover-up?

The supposed mystery stems from a much larger cover-up by the then-Labour authority to protect the liberty of the evil and the reputations of the ambitious. Children – including dying little girls – are still in danger because few of the scores of perverts who infiltrated Islington’s care system between the Seventies and the Nineties have been brought to justice.

Instead, Islington shredded every incriminating file, sacked whistleblowers and smeared victims as mentally ill.

I worked on the London Evening Standard investigation that first exposed the Islington scandal. Along with a colleague, Stewart Payne, I spent three months in 1992 secretly interviewing terrified whistleblowing staff, parents and children before the newspaper published a damning investigation. It was promptly attacked by then-council leader Margaret Hodge as a “sensationalist piece of gutter journalism”. We were falsely accused of bribing children to make up their heartbreaking stories. Mrs Hodge has since apologised and explained that her officials lied to her.

But the Standard’s then editor, the late Stewart Steven, proved indomitable. He funded us to keep digging – for three long years.

The Standard’s dossiers of evidence generated 13 independent inquiries and won two British Press awards. The final, damning Ian White Report in 1995 responded to the newspaper’s 112-page dossier of evidence. Parents, children and staff reiterated to White the paper’s allegations – including that violent pimps openly collected children from the home, and were even allowed by staff to stay overnight in children’s rooms.

White, then director of Oxfordshire social services, confirmed that Islington allowed at least 26 workers facing “extremely serious allegations” to leave its employ without investigation. Staff accused of everything from rape to child prostitution had been allowed to resign, often with good references. He described Islington as a “classic study” in how paedophiles target children, aided by the council’s naive interpretation of gay rights. “Equal opportunities… became a positive disincentive for challenge to bad practice… and a great danger”.

He called for the 26 staff to be barred from childcare and investigated further, naming them in a confidential annexe. But almost none were. As the scandal raged, Islington destroyed records. Ian White confirmed that “this happened at assistant-director level”. He “found no evidence of collusion”. But he was not allowed to question Islington’s assistant director Lyn Cusack, or her staff.

Mrs Cusack was married to a local senior police officer, Detective Superintendent Don McKay. She resigned in November 1993, citing personal reasons. Days earlier, the Standard had alerted the Social Services Inspectorate to Islington losing evidence requested by three different police forces investigating child sex rings, and the linked Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE).

Islington was deeply influenced by and had many connection to the Paedophile Information Exchange. In the fatally naïve 1970s to mid 80s, PIE openly campaigned for sex to be legalised with children from age four, and for incest and child pornography to be legalised. The National Council for Civil Liberties – now Liberty – allowed it to affiliate and its then legal officer Harriet Harman wrote a paper effectively backing some PIE demands. The assumption in those “progressive” days was that paedophiles simply loved children and wanted to “liberate” their sexuality.

Mrs Harman, whose role has been exposed in recent media stories, has described Margaret Hodge as her best friend in Parliament. Mrs Hodge’s late husband, Henry Hodge, also an Islington Labour councillor, earlier chaired the National Council for Civil Liberties. It is unknown if they ever discussed PIE.

In 1985, Mrs Hodge announced that Islington Council would positively discriminate in favour of gay staff. It exempted self-declared gay men from background checks, and paedophiles pretending to be decent gay men cynically exploited this. It emerged that Islington deputy superintendent Michael Taylor was in PIE after he received a four-year prison sentence in July 2000 for abusing two boys at Islington’s Gisburne House in the Seventies.

PIE founding member, Peter Righton, then Britain’s top “expert” on children’s homes, had even founded a training course for residential workers. Paedophilia, he declared in one essay, was “no more bizarre than a penchant for redheads”.

At least one Islington abuse victim was placed – by a key member of the Islington abuse ring, Nick Rabet – at a special boarding school outside London with which Righton was closely involved. The victim haltingly disclosed his abuse to his Islington social worker, who was deeply concerned. But in 1989, the social worker vanished, supposedly carrying the victim’s files under his arm. When the Standard asked questions about the school, Islington denied ever sending any child there. It also lied about this to police.

The White Report said that the social worker’s disappearance should be investigated by police. But it never was. This recommendation was redacted from the censored version of the report that Islington published last year. But I still have the original and live in hope of one day tracing that social worker. My understanding is that he was “heavied” and fled abroad.

Police and social services inquiries into PIE were also abruptly shut down. This led to the senior child protection manager bravely blowing the whistle in 2012 to Tom Watson, whose PMQ about an establishment paedophile ring leading to No 10 silenced the Commons. PIE supplied children from homes to wealthy establishment figures. It was the ultimate cross-party crime, which many wanted buried.

Sue Akers was a detective inspector and head of Islington police’s Child Protection Team at the scandal’s height. I begged her to study the paper’s evidence and place a believed child brothel under surveillance. But she refused to meet me. The failure of Islington police to act on intelligence provided by a terrified 13-year-old who admitted recruiting dozens of named children for three pimps was criticised by a secret 1993 inquiry into “Boy A”. But it was suppressed. Akers became a deputy assistant commander, responsible for all Metropolitan Police child-abuse investigations.

Hodge’s successor, Derek Sawyer, ran the council between 1992 and 1994, when the abuse inquiries were set up, and became head of police and probation bodies, and chairman of the London Courts Board. In 2010, Sawyer’s partner in an international education business, Derek Slade, was imprisoned for 21 years for brutally abusing 12 boys at St George’s boarding school in Suffolk. There is no suggestion that Mr Sawyer knew his friend was a paedophile.

As the Islington scandal dragged on, many of the alleged offenders simply moved abroad to prey on even poorer children. Like Jimmy Savile – and the Joker, as I have come to think of the hospital volunteer I mentioned earlier – some accessed children through charity work.

For legal reasons we are unable to name the Joker and have concealed identifying details. The allegations against him were never examined, and it is possible that they are false or result from the confused memories of young children. The Standard was similarly unable at first to name any of the alleged child abusers on Islington’s payroll. But that changed when key ringleaders were arrested abroad. Astonishingly, so-called Third World police managed what Britain’s finest could not.

Nicholas John Rabet, former deputy superintendent of Islington’s home at 114 Grosvenor Avenue, was charged in Thailand in 2006 with abusing 30 local boys – the youngest was six – and killed himself. I was finally able to describe his role in a nationwide child pornography ring serving wealthy British paedophiles; while ex-Cambridgeshire DC Peter Cook went on the record about how police inquiries here were mysteriously closed down.

The arrest and death of fellow ringleader Bernie Bain, former superintendent of Islington’s home at 1 Elwood Street, made it possible to name him. Bain abused numerous boys in his care, including Demetrious Panton, whom Margaret Hodge secretly branded “extremely disturbed” to BBC bosses in an attempt to halt a documentary on what she knew of the scandal. Mr Panton – now a lawyer – forced her to apologise for this cruel slur in the High Court.

Bain left Islington’s employ after Mr Panton, aged 11, revealed his abuse, which the council – influenced by PIE-type thinking – decided was “consensual”. The young victim spent the Eighties writing to Hodge’s councillors protesting otherwise. But Bain was left free to become a millionaire through a mysterious travel company. After the Standard started publishing, he fled to Morocco and was imprisoned there in 1996 for abusing children. He killed himself in 2000.

Detective Chief Superintendent John Sweeney, who took over Islington police’s child protection team after the scandal was exposed, traced long-ignored victims. He told me: “When I first learnt about the homes, I thought it couldn’t possibly be that bad. But it was worse.”

In the years since the White Report of 1995, more victims and abusers have come to light. However, Islington’s wholesale destruction of key files has enabled the council to avoid responsibility. I was asked in 2009 to help a solicitor representing one of Bain’s victims, who now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. Islington denied that this person was in their care as a child, and even that they ever employed Bain. The basis of their denial? They had no records for either.

Mr Panton revealed last week: “Just yesterday, I made a witness statement on behalf of someone who was also horribly abused by Bain. I knew him as a kid and his life and health have been destroyed by what happened to him. But Islington has denied any responsibility. So Islington is still covering up.”

I tracked down the Joker last autumn after I was given his details by someone who helped expose the scandal. I have known Shelley, as I shall call her, for many years and trust her forensic mind. She is concerned with protecting his three alleged victims as they remain traumatised. She knew nothing about the girls’ sufferings until Karen, the eldest, broke down and blurted out their story.

They were not yet ready, she said, to talk to the press or police. Many abuse survivors can only reveal what they suffered bit by bit – some suffer a self-protective partial amnesia. One was buggered at just five years old. I asked Shelley if it was possible she was being spun a fantasy. But she remembered the girl from care, and other details about what had occurred there.

Today Shelley has a good job, as does Karen. “Karen is very smart and sophisticated. But when she told me what happened, she fell apart. It was like she’d ripped off a scab. Afterwards she spent the day in bed, just crying.”

It is understood that, as adults in the early Noughties, two of the Joker’s alleged victims contacted the council, hoping for justice; that the council awarded them a smallish sum in compensation; and informed them the man had moved abroad and police could not find him.

Did Islington even alert police? It took me just two days to find him. I wept when I realised that he was accessing terminally ill children in an impoverished country. I discovered from his messages that the expat seemed lonely and kind. He wore funny hats to cheer up the children.

As a volunteer, he now visited them in hospital and at their homes. One unsuspecting mother said he was like a caring older relative in their time of need, and even invited him to stay. I found a photo of him at one hospital. I showed it to Shelley. She wasn’t taken in by his friendly grin: “That’s him. God, he’s ugly.”

When I learnt about the Joker, I spoke to Liz Davies, the former Islington senior social worker who blew the whistle on perverts targeting the council’s homes. Dr Davies is now Reader in Social Work at London Metropolitan University. I asked her how anyone could abuse a dying child. “Dead children can’t give evidence,” said Dr Davies. “There’s a training DVD about it. Some paedophiles target them.”

A reporter anonymously admitted last year that he had found Jimmy Savile on a mattress at the BBC with a little girl. She was bald, a cancer victim at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, where Savile “volunteered”. Savile hissed that if the reporter told anyone, his career was over. The reporter stayed silent.

Karen told Shelley: “None of us talked much as kids about what was being done to us… we felt ashamed. But the other girls mentioned being required to travel in Jimmy Savile’s taxis.”

Savile’s charity projects included ferrying disadvantaged children in taxis to places like Blackpool Pleasure Beach. At least one Islington survivor recalls being taken there by his abuser.

Child protection investigators have long been aware that corrupt taxi drivers are commissioned by paedophiles to transport children: “kids on wheels”, it has been called. One taxi driver was imprisoned in 1990 for prostituting boys. The same year, the Islington Gazette proudly recorded Jimmy Savile’s visit to open the council’s new housing complex for disabled people. The story focused on the likes of a three-year-old with cerebral palsy and a paralysed woman who had been at Stoke Mandeville.

Once this story is published, Shelley and I will give police the information we have. But she and the victims do not feel able to confide in police without the protection of media coverage.

What is certain is that neither these victims nor any others have much trust in Islington Council coming clean with the name of the home where abuse took place, as requested by Mr Gove. This is because the current Islington cabinet member with responsibility for children and family services is Joe Caluori – the son-in-law of Margaret Hodge.

Mr Panton said: “Do I think it is right that Margaret Hodge’s son-in-law now has this key position? Of course not. He may be a fine councillor, but I would think it is better that he is not in this position, given the association. While the politicians of the Eighties have moved on, their influence is still highly visible. It cannot be appropriate for any inquiry into this matter to be overseen by this MP’s relative.”

Mr Panton believes that “an independent police investigation into Islington is crucial. I know many abuse survivors who have not yet contacted Islington or the police. There is a real lack of trust – it is hard to tell your story when you risk being disbelieved or attacked.”

The whistleblower Dr Davies adds: “I think there could be more than one home with Savile connections. Children from Islington’s home at 114 Grosvenor Avenue were taken to Jersey by Rabet, and Savile visited Jersey’s Haut de la Garenne home. Survivors of abuse there have described being taken to an Islington children’s home.”

So Margaret Hodges’ successor in Islington was a man who helped paedo Derek Slade obtain a new ID!

he certainly was + the man doing the helping for the PAEDO was ELECTION AGENT UNTIL 5 YEARS AGO!

Revealed: How a close male relative of Baby P is linked to a big paedophile network

A close male relative of Baby P was feared to have recruited youngsters in care for a notorious paedophile ring, according to a secret report seen by The Mail on Sunday.

Although he is not believed to have had any contact with Baby P, his involvement in a child abuse scandal in Islington, North London, in the early Nineties raises questions on the extent of checks into Baby P’s background.

‘The family should have been subjected to forensic examination,’ said a child protection expert.

Baby P

Dangerous ties: A close male relative of Baby P could have recruited children for a paedophile ring

‘Even cursory checks would have rung alarm bells. Social workers might then have removed the baby, as a paediatrician and police pleaded.’

The relative was named in reports as a victim and a feared recruiter of children for pimps.

In the early Nineties he was put in a children’s home.

At the time, all 12 of Islington’s then homes, and at least one of the boarding schools it used, had been infiltrated by paedophiles.

The relative, then a frightened 13-year-old, was under the control of three pimps – Alan, John and George – who persuaded him with money, drugs and threats to bring other children to them.

He tried in vain to blow the whistle and protect himself and other children.He gave social workers the names of others ferried from the homes to, he said, Manor Park, Tottenham, Soho and Westminster to ‘be buggered by old men’.

But none of the men were placed under surveillance or questioned.

Several social workers and managers fought hard to get help for the boy and other children targeted by the paedophiles.

Social worker Neville Mighty was deputy superintendent of Islington’s then unit at 18 Highbury Grove, where pimps slept overnight.

His boss claimed such men were simply ‘boyfriends’ and said Mighty was a prude to repress the children’s sexuality.

Mighty, who had received death threats, had named the relative in a report pleading with Islington’s then director of children’s services, Lyn Cusack, for help.

Ms Cusack, married to a senior policeman, did nothing save threaten disciplinary action because Mighty was ‘rude’. Eventually, in June 1992, Mighty was sacked.

Liz Davies, the senior Islington social worker who encouraged Mighty to go public, said: ‘We got too close. There were too many powerful people involved. Child sex, pornography and sadism are extremely lucrative industries.’

In 1994, a damning  independent report criticised the failure of police and social workers to help the relative and to help protect children in care in Islington.

Michelle Golding and the film “Beyond the hoodie”The estate was subject to a recent ITV documentary whereby a local MP, Ann Widdecombe, spent a night in one of the flats to highlight the supposed problem of youths causing trouble at all hours.

The youth of Andover Estate recently got together with a London film maker Michelle Golding [1] to produce a film [2] rebutting the Ann Widdecombe programme.

Young residents put across their side of the story to demonstrate that they are more likely to be victims of crime than perpetrators.

The film highlights the actual reduction in crime on the estate over the last couple of years and the problem of much of the crime being committed by non-residents. It also discusses the negative impact created by the sloppy journalism of the Ann Widdecombe film. This was brought into sharp focus by the murder of a 14 year old boy in July 2007.

One of the Uk’s top rappers Skinnyman grew up on the nearby Six Acres Estate and also spent many of his younger years hanging around on Andover Estate. His highly acclaimed album Council Estate of Mind is believed to be about his upbringing in this area.

Johnny Rotten also grew up on the nearby Six Acres Estate.

On the edge of the estate on Sonderburg Road by Seven Sisters Road is Harmsworth hospital, (named and built after Sir Harold Harmsworth) an animal hospital run by the RSPCA, which was the focal point of the television reality TV series Animal Hospital, and was presented by popular TV personality Rolf Harris.

Council offers £25-a-week jobs to children on Widdy’s estate

According to a council report into inequality, Islington has the second highest rate of child poverty in England, with no one working in more than three quarters of the poorest households

Schoolchildren as young as 14 are to be offered adult jobs such as repairing roads and clerical work in a bid to give them a “work ethic”.

Islington council wants to pay new “junior assistants” £25 to work up to eight hours a week, which it hopes will break the cycle of unemployment in deprived areas of the borough.

A pilot scheme will begin on the Andover Estate in Finsbury Park, which suffers chronic unemployment and was branded a “dump” by former Tory MP Ann Widdecombe in 2007 when she stayed there for an ITV documentary Ann Widdecombe Vs The Hoodies. She described the estate as “very nasty, very threatening” and the youngsters living there as “thugs”.

And  Holloway Prison (Claire Rayner/Boateng/Longford Myra Hindley etc) is nearby
…………………………………………………………………….Holloway Prison

HC Deb 13 May 1983 vol 42 c511W 511W§ Mr. Christopher Priceasked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement about the exclusion of the head of the education department by the governor of Holloway prison from that institution on the grounds that he was in contact with a former inmate; and what is his policy about such contacts.§ Mr. MellorAs part of their general responsibilities for assisting prisoners in preparing for release prison education officers sometimes maintain contact with former prisoners after release. But under rule 81 of the Prison Rules they are required to make the governor aware of such contacts, and it is open to the governor to prohibit them if in the particular case he considers it advisable to do so in the interests of good order and discipline. I understand that in the case to which the hon. Member refers the governor considered it necessary to prohibit contact by the education officer with a particular prisoner and instructed him to give a formal written assurance that he would comply with that instruction. When the education officer failed to give that asssurance the governor requested his employer, the Inner London Education Authority, to withdraw him from the prison pending a formal hearing of the case as provided under his conditions of service. That hearing is due to take place on 26 May and it would be inappropriate for me to comment further at this stage.

The head of the education department, at that time was the recently outed, by msm, Sir Keith Joseph.
Thatcher later referred to Joseph as her closest political friend
Keith Harding’s shop:

One of his staff, who worked for him between 1980 and 1987, said: “Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith were both regular visitors to the shop. Usually they would come in via the side door, other times they would ring the bell at the front entrance and come in.“They’d straight away ask for Keith who would be coming down the stairs. “Then they would then either go up to his office for a private meeting or they’d go out for several hours.” The former worker added: “The shop had many high profile customers, including the Royals, because we were one of the few antique dealers in the world that specialised in restoring clocks, music boxes and automatons.


“It’s only now, with what I know about Brittan and Smith, and of course Keith, that has made me wonder what they were doing. Jeremy Thorpe too was an occasional visitor.” Harding was given the Freedom of the City of London and made a member of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers. He moved to Gloucester in 1987 after PIE disbanded, setting up Keith Harding’s World of Mechanical Music, a museum in Northleach, near Cheltenham.

Wonders from a bygone ageThursday 18th March 2010

“When I was a boy,” he said, “my father was a doctor in Faringdon.I

 was invited to parties in big houses where the music boxes that were once in drawing rooms had been passed down to the nursery.“Most of my friends had music boxes, and I had that early fascination.“I’m interested in everything that moves – I always wanted to know the cause of everything.”Of such early interests, wonders may eventually be born.

Mr Harding has been many things in his life, including an engineer, a journalist, a Dominican Friar, a librarian and amember of the RAF.

He left the RAF when it seemed the powers that be were about to direct his talents toward making bigger and better atom bombs – not a prospect he relished.

He is a Freeman of the City of London and an internationally acclaimed maker and restorer of clocks, musical boxes and various other intriguing machines. There is scarcely a clock or musical box in the Victoria and Albert Museum that has not been worked on by him at some point, and the V&A also housed a special clock he was asked to build in honour of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977.

He regularly advises leading auction houses.

He and his small team at Northleach have grateful clients all over the world, from prestigious museums and galleries to private collectors with deep pockets and a taste for the exquisite and unusual.

When not busy with such matters, Mr Harding has found time for cave diving, the violin, playing in a brass band and studying ancient written languages, among other pursuits.

The interview panel for the role of Secretary to the Albany Trust was a committee of five men and one woman. Already known to most in his role as Treasurer before Grey were the familiar faces of an elderly genitourinary surgeon, a Labour inner-city MP, the Bishop of Woolwich, a published criminal psychiatrist and a young married couple in town from up North.

“My appointment was not a foregone conclusion. I was asked to wait in Kenneth Walker’s little Harley Street dining room while the committee discussed my offer. Besides Mr Walker, the others present were

Dr Neustatter (the Society’s deputy chairman Dr [Walter] Lindesay Neustatter was the Trust’s deputy chairman at the time, as well as consulting at Royal Northern Hospital and serving as Vice-President of the Medico-Legal Society. Six years previously he had delved into ‘The Mind of the Murderer’… in 1966 would give Ian Brady’s pre-sentence report and gave evidence on Brian Jones’ state of mind.), Kenneth Robinson MP, the Bishop of Woolwich (‘Honest to God’ John Robinson) and the Newalls.

Apologies for absence had been received from Jeremy Thorpe MP, Ambrose Appelbe, C.H. Rolph and Jacquetta Hawkes, although I believe that most, if not all, of these had told Kenneth Walker of their views.” [Grey Loc 1148/6001]

 


Royal Northern Hospital, Holloway Road The Great Northern Hospital was founded, at his own expense, by Dr. Sherard Freeman Statham, an assistant surgeon, who had been dismissed from University College Hospital for smacking a patient’s bottom.


Interestingly, half of the interviewing Albany Trust  committee were involved in Royal Northern Hospital, located on the Holloway Road in Islington, North London.

Kenneth Walker O.B.E was an eminent consultant surgeon to the Genito-Urinary Department at Royal Northern, while Dr Neustatter was a senior psychiatrist to the department of Psychological Medicine there and Kenneth Robinson, a local Labour MP for St Pancras, served on the Hospital’s Board.

(It was Kenneth Robinson MP as Wilson’s Minister of Health who won a libel suit against the Church of Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard. In 1967, banning foreign Scientologists from entering the UK (a prohibition which remained in force until 1980). In response, L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology’s founder, had accused Wilson of being a puppet of Soviet Russia backed by an international conspiracy of psychiatrists and financiers!)

Kenneth Walker O.B.E (1882 – 1966)- In 1939 he had co-written with a pschoanalyst the book Sexual Disorders in the male. In 1945 described circumstances in which artificial insemination was taking place in UK in British Medical Journal with Dr Weisner and in the early 1920s was performing testicular grafts for ‘rejuvenation’although he very quickly saw them as impossible and denounced Voronoff’s work (based in 1920s Paris transplanting first castrated criminals’ ‘glands’ and then shavings of monkey glands into wealthy elderly men!) to the Royal College of Surgeons.

The hospital had moved grounds several times since being founded in the 1850s to end up near Union Chapel, Highbury and Islington station with a Royal Charter from 1921. It was one of the first hospitals to receive wireless radio on the wards.

“Royal Northern. North seven …” While that may not be the most well-known of chorus chants from the height of the punk explosion, Demon Preacher’s debut single Royal Northern
was nevertheless the embodiment of the era’s spirit of get up and go.

The group’s debut performance was in a church hall on the Holloway Road, and the show was attended by sundry Sex Pistols. So it seems only appropriate the group’s debut release, on its own Illegal Pressings label, in 1978 would feature a song about the Royal Northern Hospital, similarly on the Holloway Road, and stories circulating at the time about porters assisting with operations. The hospital is long gone, and so many of London’s hospitals have flats on the sitDemon Preacher itself is of particular interest to some punk archivists because it was led by Nik Wade who would go on to form Alien Sex Fiend. I don’t think any of his later songs were postcode related. And if you’re not sure about the north London postcodes ..

Moors murders BOMBSHELL: Jimmy Savile part of ‘paedo ring with Ian Brady and Myra Hindley’

25th June 2017

DISGRACED radio DJ Jimmy Savile has been accused of buying indecent photographs of children from evil killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, Daily Star Online can exclusively reveal.

Savile – who died in 2011 at the age of 84 – never faced trial for his crimes as one of Britain’s worst ever sex offenders.His twisted friendship with Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe is well known but now Daily Star Online can exclusively lift the lid on his links to the Moors murderers.Before their arrest in 1965, Savile ran the BBC studios from Manchester’s Dickenson Road – where Top of the Pops was filmed – and has been accused of meeting with Brady and Hindley to buy indecent images of children.

Erica Gregory – who has devoted years of her life investigating the Moors murders – believes they even formed a twisted “paedophile ring”.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, she said: “I believe they went to the BBC studio regularly to make a fuss and try to get in with Savile.

“Alongside David Smith, Brady was selling photographs of children to make money at this time – I believe Savile could have been one of his customers.

“It is well known that Savile visited them both inside. I believe they were in a ring of some sort.”

It doesn’t stop there, though.

In 2014, Dan Davies noted that Savile chillingly replied “I am the Myra Hindley story” when asked on his opinion of it.And Gregory believes that Savile continued to communicate with the killers after their incarceration – visiting them and using songs played on the radio to transmit coded messages.“Savile could have been using his radio for secret messages,” she said.“Brady used music in tapes and songs that he stated reminded him of the Moors.“And Savile knew that if he played a song at a certain time then those listening would get the message.”

Brady – who passed away last month – was responsible for the brutal murder of five children in and around Greater Manchester alongside serial killer lover Myra Hindley in the 1960s.The twisted 79-year-old never revealed the location of Keith Bennett’s body – despite desperate appeals from the 12-year-old’s mum Winnie Johnson, who died in 2012.Before his death, Brady had been incarcerated at Ashworth Hospital since 1985 while Hindley died in 2002 after 35 years behind bars.Together they killed five child victims – Pauline Reade, John Kilbride, Keith Bennett, Lesley Ann Downey and Edward Evans – between July 1963 and October 1965.At least four of them, including Bennett, were sexually assaulted before the killers were finally convicted and jailed for life in 1966.Earlier this month, Daily Star Online exclusively revealed how the evil duo could have been responsible for the death of seven more children.

60s Lord Boothby shares rent boys with Krays, now, Keith Vaz buys coke for rent boys, 60s Ted Heath takes kids from jersey home, May covers

Gangster Ronnie Kray and top politician Lord Boothby in 1963. Lord Boothby was close to all the top people from Churchill to Tom Driberg”The Krays had property at Bildeston where they were involved with local youth clubs and giving children donkey rides etc.”Apparently Kray had access to many London care homes and would have boys delivered to parties at DJ Alan ” fluff” Freeman’s large flat over a music shop in East London.

“There they would meet with show biz types and DJs including Jimmy Saville, JOE MEEKS and on occasion Beatles manager Brian Epstein.”

According to this source – Archives – the Krays ran a paedophile ring.

They were billeted at East House Lodge, Hadleigh, and placed on the roll of local schools.“When we was little kids we got evacuated to Suffolk, near Ipswich,” confirmed Ronnie among the hubbub of one of those Broadmoor taping sessions. “We went to a Mrs Styles’s place in Suffolk – she had a mansion there – and we stayed with her. It was the first time we ever went to the county and we got to like the country.”…he turned his mind back to carefree childhood days in Suffolk: tobogganing at Hadleigh, scrumping for apples, and playing cowboys and Indians.He also recalled the country mansion at Bildeston the twins later bought for £11,000 – reflecting that it would now be worth £1million-plus, if only they could have held on to it – and explained how they’d go on antique-buying trips while up in East Anglia.“It all adds up to a picture of the Kray twins no-one has ever seen,” says Robin McGibbon, the journalist who talked to the brothers in the 1980s and ’90s and committed their memories to tape.

Jimmy Savile given the keys to Broadmoor under Ken Clarke New probe as grim toll of fiend’s victims rises

www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4588301/Jimmy-Savile-was-given-the-keys-to-Broadmoor-under-Ken-Clarkes-watch.html

CABINET minister Ken Clarke was dramatically dragged into the Jimmy Savile scandal yesterday.

It emerged that BBC pervert Savile was “given the keys” to Broadmoor secure hospital around 1988 — when Mr Clarke was Health Secretary.

Mr Clarke was last night forced to defend himself, saying: “I have no recollection of ever having met Jimmy Savile and no recollection of these events.

“The Department of Health are now investigating to establish the facts.”

Why was murderous child-rapist and VIP pimp, Jimmy Savile, given the keys to high-security psychiatric hospital, Broadmoor? Was it because, as well as being able to freely abuse residents, he was also able to stay in close contact with notorious killers, Ian Brady, Ronnie Kray and Peter Sutcliffe? Most certainly, yes.

“What was involved was the systematic abuse of ten-to-twelve-year-old boys, one of whom subsequently became fairly well known as a singer.

“Another, rather less fortunate,wound up in six pieces in two suitcases…

Tony Oliver was 13 when his brother Bernard was murdered In January 1967, police in Tattingstone, Suffolk, discovered a suitcase containing the mutilated body of Bernard Oliver. The dissected body of Bernard Oliver, 17, from Muswell Hill, north London, was found dumped in two suitcases on farmland in Tattingstone, near Ipswich, on 16 January 1967.

The possibility that Britten and Pears were part of Righton’s circle (and thus perhaps also to other members of PIE) does not in itself prove anything, but undoubtedly this needs to be investigated, together with the meetings in Snape Maltings. That question has certainly been asked by the Daily Mail. Last month the paper put the Savile scandal and the Britten centenary together and asked if the BBC would acknowledge Britten’s “obsession with young boys” in its plans for the centenary, which are designed to reflect the “significant part the BBC played in the Britten story”.


Lord Britten’s obsession with young boys, many of whom he invited to stay at his Suffolk home.

Benjamin Britten’s Gloriana to mark 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation Her coronation in 1953 was marked by the premiere of Benjamin Britten’s Gloriana, an opera commissioned in honour of the occasion. The fact that Benjamin Britten was deeply fascinated by adolescent boys throughout his life is no secret. His sexuality loomed large in Humphrey Carpenter’s ground-breaking 1992 biography, and was the subject of a 2004 TV documentary and subsequent book, Britten’s Children. WH Auden once taunted Britten over his “attraction to thin-as-a-board juveniles”. No one with even a brief acquaintance of Britten’s music can possibly miss the prominent and privileged place that music for the unbroken male voice occupies in his output.

Paedophiles Dr Martin Reddington & Dr John Byles

Doctors were murder probe chief suspects

29 October 2004 | UPDATED: 05:22 02 March 2010

TWO doctors wanted for the death and homosexual assault of another boy were the prime suspects in the Tattingstone suitcase murder, it can be revealed today.

TWO doctors wanted for the death and homosexual assault of another boy were the prime suspects in the Tattingstone suitcase murder, it can be revealed today.

Martin Reddington and John Byles both denied any involvement in the strangling and mutilation of mentally disabled teenager Bernard Oliver in January, 1967.

But detectives investigating one of the most horrific crimes Suffolk has ever known, pinpointed the pair as suspects from an early stage in their inquiries.

And when the case was reopened, in 1977, their links were again closely scrutinised. By this time, the case against them had grown even stronger.

But, in a remarkable hole in the investigation, Dr Reddington was never interviewed in connection with the offence.

It was decided there was insufficient evidence to extradite him from Australia, where he was living in 1977.

Original documents from the massive murder probe reveal they were jointly wanted for a string of sickening crimes, including gross indecency and buggery.

And one involved the murder of a boy in London in 1973, after an apparent homosexual relationship.

The previously unrevealed evidence is able to be published today due to the new Freedom of Information Act which will become law at the beginning of next year.

However Suffolk police granted permission for the file to be opened two months early after a request by The Evening Star.

The death of the boy in London in 1973 was a crime which had striking parallels with the gruesome death of Mr Oliver, whose severed body was discovered packed into two suitcases.

Tests on the remains revealed Mr Oliver had taken part in homosexual acts prior to his death, although his friends insisted he was not gay.

Two years before Mr Oliver’s death, a warrant had been issued for the arrest of Dr Reddington for the buggery and indecent assault of males, in 1965.

But before police inquiries could be completed, he fled the country for South Africa. Despite several attempts, the warrant was never executed and his guilt neither proved nor disproved.

It was known he made a number of return visits to the United Kingdom since leaving, although no evidence was ever found to place him in Suffolk or North London in January 1967.

The strong lack of leads to back up suspicions against the pair hindered the investigation from day one.

Yet, at the same time a great deal of other circumstantial evidence was building up.

One clue was the location of Dr Reddington’s surgery in Muswell Hill, North London, which was in the direction of the street Mr Oliver was last seen walking down.

Despite every address in the area being searched, the crime scene was never established – nor was any link with Suffolk.

The only possible clue was the local knowledge of Colchester-born Dr Reddington, although Dr Byles denied any knowledge of the county when interviewed.

A private investigator in Muswell Hill provided one of the fascinating pieces of evidence in the entire investigation.

She claimed to recognise the suitcase used to discard the body parts of Mr Oliver, pointing to the distinctive P.V.A initials on its side.

She told detectives she spoke to a man in a launderette on numerous occasions and vividly remembered the suitcase being brought in containing his dirty washing.

It was her description that to an artist’s impression of the killer being released.

And when the inquiry was reopened in 1977, she picked out a photograph of Dr Reddington as one of three men she recognised as owning the suitcase.

Another other clue that caused suspicion to fall on the two doctors was the expert way in which the body was cut up.

Neatly severed into eight parts, the precise and deliberate nature of the operation meant only an expert could have carried it out.

A consultant surgeon at the then Ipswich and East Suffolk Hospital decided the crime was most likely to have been committed by a doctor, surgeon or medical student.

It was someone with “knowledge of anatomy with previous experience of dismemberment”. The gory task had been “expertly accomplished”, with the exception of one joint.

The consultant explained: “One would expect the person dissecting the body, irrespective of how calm and deliberate he may have been, to show some sign of nerves, anxiety or excitement towards the end of the dissection.

“This could well be the reason for the bad workmanship on the left knee joint.”

But despite this growing weight of evidence by the late 1970s, Dr Reddington went to his grave without ever answering any questions relating to the crime. He died in May 1995, aged 63.

By now, Dr Byles had committed suicide in 1975, after being arrested and charged for an indecent assault in London, while in Australia.

He jumped bail and committed suicide before the full facts of the matter could be determined.

The 38-year-old left two suicide notes beside his body, one to Reddington, and another to Scotland Yard.

The note to police contained an apology for what he had done, but there was no direct reference to the Tattingstone murder. He was thought to have been responsible for the death of a cabin boy.

Eric Shields, a former detective sergeant with Suffolk police, was one of the officers who worked on infamous crime nearly 40 years ago.

Today he said: “The investigation was carried out in minute detail. As far as I’m concerned, it was dealt with in a highly professional manner.”

“I’m sure all the officers who worked on the Tattingstone murder are disappointed nobody has been brought to book.”

The ‘Holy Trinity’ Paedophile Ring

The Holy Trinity church, Huddersfield

The case of the murder of Bernard Oliver, 17, whose dismembered body was found in two suitcases in the village of Tattingstone in Suffolk in 1967, is unsolved and because the main suspects are both now dead, it will likely remain so, but it was the identifying of those two suspects, Dr Martin Reddington and Dr John Byles, and the tracing of the history of at least some of their offending which led us  to the ‘Holy Trinity Paedophile Ring’.  This was a group of professionals that in 1975 stood trial at Leeds Crown Court and were found guilty of the sexual abuse of young boys including abuse within the Holy Trinity church, Huddersfield, and the trade in child sexual abuse images to Copenhagen and Amsterdam.

Porn lawyer charged in Brazil with child exploitation

July 24, 2002
An American lawyer who specialized in defending those accused of child pornography is under arrest in Brazil, charged with violating that country’s laws against child exploitation.
Lawrence Allen Stanley, 47, was arrested June 8 after police in Salvador say they found more than 1,000 photographs and more than 100 videos of young girls in swimsuits and underwear.
The arrest came days after the Brazilian magazine Epocha reported that Stanley, a fugitive who has lived in Brazil since 1998, had built an international business photographing Brazilian girls and selling their photos through the Internet.At a hearing July 8, a Brazilian federal judge ordered that Stanley remain in custody until trial after receiving the report of an investigation from Rita Sanchez, head of the Center for Human Rights. Stanley faces up to four years in prison if convicted.Under the alias L.A. Stanaman, Stanley operated the “MiniModels” Web site, featuring photos of girls ages 8 to 14 in what police Officer Rui Gomes described to the Associated Press as “sensual poses.” Police said Stanley paid the girls $20 to $40 for each photo session.An official of the Brazilian Embassy in Washington did not respond to a request for information on Stanley’s case.Stanley has been identified as the owner of Alessandra’s Smile, a New York company that sells erotic material about girls. He is also the publisher of Ophelia Editions, which produces books with pedophile themes, and Uncommon Desires, a newsletter that has called itself “the voice of a politically conscious girl-love underground.”Stanley has a criminal record. He was charged with “sexual aggression” against a girl in Quebec in 1990, but Canadian officials never sought extradition. In 1998, a Dutch court convicted Stanley in absentia for sexual abuse of three children ages 7 to 10, Epocha reported. He faces a three-year prison sentence if he returns to the Netherlands. Brazil has no extradition treaty with the Netherlands.In 1989, federal authorities accused Stanley of conspiring with a client, photographer Don Marcus, to import child pornography. Marcus who fled to France to escape prosecution and is still a fugitive asked Stanley to pick up a suitcase that was found to contain child pornography. His attorney argued that Stanley did not know what was in the suitcase, and a jury acquitted him in 1993.
He has written several articles about child pornography, including one in 1987 in the Dutch pedophile journal Paidika. “Law enforcement officials have exaggerated the incidence of possession of child pornography,” Stanley said. “Only 14 percent depicted children engaged in sexual conduct with adults,” he said, referring to photos in child pornography magazines.
Those assertions were expanded by Stanley in a 1988 Playboy article, “The Child Pornography Myth,” in which he argued that pedophiles were a “small, essentially insignificant group.”
Stanley’s work was cited by Judith Levine in her recent book, “Harmful to Minors,” which several critics said promoted pedophilia. The Levine book was sold by one of Stanley’s Web sites, which praised it as an “important and compelling book” debunking “myths that adult attraction to children is a serious and pervasive threat.”
As lawyer in the mid-1990s, Stanley defended efforts by the North American Man Boy Love Association to operate as a tax-exempt group.
In 1998, U.S. Customs officials seized a large shipment of European nudist magazines addressed to Stanley’s company, Alessandra’s Smile. In 1999, a federal judge ruled the magazines obscene, but the decision was reversed by an appeals court. panel.http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2002/jul/24/20020724-034743-2147r/

How the art world turned a blind eye to a paedophile: Painter Graham Ovenden defended by the establishment is convicted of indecency against young girls

Charities condemn gallery over major show on ‘repugnant’ artist who sexually abused his two daughters

  • Twisted British artist Eric Gill sexually abused his two daughters and his pet dog 
  • Extent of his reign of horror over his children only emerged after he died in 1940
  • Row has broken out after art gallery plans to display his artwork of his daughters 

An art gallery came under fire last night for staging a major exhibition about an artist who abused his two daughters and slept with his sister.

The retrospective of Eric Gill’s work includes explicit drawings, prints and sculptures of his daughters, Elizabeth and Petra. 

Gill died in 1940, aged 58, and it later emerged that the girls had suffered years of sexual abuse at his hands.

He also had an incestuous relationship with his younger sister Gladys, and conducted sexual experiments on his dog.

The show, which opened yesterday at the Ditchling Museum Of Art And Craft in East Sussex, features a nude drawing of Elizabeth from 1927 and a woodblock showing a naked Petra from 1921.

Rape charities called the show ‘repugnant’. 

Fay Maxted, chief executive of the Survivors Trust, said: ‘The gallery is showing a real lack of understanding of the impact of sexual abuse on children and the responsibility we have not to promote it or normalise it. If you add the financial element, it becomes even more distasteful.’

Some residents in Ditchling, where Gill lived between 1906 and 1924, also criticised the museum. Jazz musician Herbie Flowers, 79, said: ‘They might as well put a Rolf Harris exhibition on the week after and a Jimmy Savile and Gary Glitter one after that.’

Museum director Nathaniel Hepburn said: ‘We have spoken to some of those in the village who raised concerns and once they have heard more about the exhibition then they have been supportive of our approach, even if they still object to Gill.’

Terence Waters, Graham Ovenden, Ronald Oliver, Gregory Potter where arrested on the 17th November 1993 but only Terence Waters was jailed.

A TEACHER who built a secret room at a Woking school where he indecently assaulted pupils has walked free from court.
2 JUL 2013

Terrence Waters, 68, an art and carpentry teacher at  Allen House School, a boys’ school that has since closed, was given a suspended sentence after admitting 12 charges.

Judge Michael Addison said Waters was in a position of trust when he committed the seven counts of indecent assault on a male and five of indecency with a child.

The incidents took place in the 1970s and 1980s. The court heard that Waters was told to leave the school following allegations made against him.

Ruby Selva, prosecuting, said Waters, now of Kent Square, Great Yarmouth, organised trips and a photography club.

In 1988, he received a five-year sentence for indecent assault, reduced to three-and-a-half years on appeal.

In 1994, he was sentenced to 10 years for indecent assault, reduced to six on appeal, and he received another 13 months for taking indecent photographs in 2000.

Pilot Study on Alleged Organised Abuse – Hale and Sinason c.1994

The Department of Education have released a redacted copy of the Final Report of a “Pilot Study on Alleged Organised Abuse” authored, in approximately 1994, by Dr Robert Hale and Ms Valerie Sinason of the Portman and Tavistock Clinic.

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.

The shadow ban Twitter has imposed on Barbara Hewson seems to be particularly severe. Try searching…!

Such a shame Times didn’t tell its readers that Hewson was suspended from Twitter last week 2 times in as many days

Barrister complains to police and BSB about another barrister’s unacceptable behaviour on Twitter

lead1Two barristers are locked in a very public spat after one accused the other of “enthusiastically” encouraging the abuse of an unnamed journalist online.Sarah Phillimore (pictured top left), who is a tenant at St John’s Chambers in Bristol, and Barbara Hewson (pictured top right), who is a member of 1 Gray’s Inn Square in London, are at loggerheads over Hewson’s social media etiquette.This according to The Times (£), which reported today that Phillimore has sent a letter to Hewson’s legal representatives complaining about her behaviour on Twitter. The letter stated:

Ms Hewson has enthusiastically encouraged such abuse [of the journalist] over many months and engaged in direct abuse and harassment [herself].

Confirming to Legal Cheek that she has filed complaints with both the police and Bar Standards Board (BSB), Phillimore continued:

I… believe I have clear evidence to support my contention that Ms Hewson’s online activities have serious and potentially criminal ramifications well beyond the issue of publication on Twitter. This is not acceptable behaviour from a practising barrister.

Returning fire, Irish-born Hewson — whose personal Twitter account now appears to have been “suspended” (screenshot below) — told the newspaper:

I object in the strongest possible terms to Ms Phillimore’s brinkmanship, making extraordinarily serious accusations in an unfocused way, without any supporting evidence. I and my legal team will robustly defend any civil or criminal proceedings that she, or any anyone else, initiates against me.

lead1While the identity of the journalist remains a mystery, Legal Cheek understands that the Twitter bust-up and subsequent letter stems from the barristers’ differing views on child abuse cases. The report states that Hewson has instructed London-based media experts Simons Muirhead & Burton to defend any potential claim.

Responding to today’s report, the BSB told Legal Cheek:

The BSB does not comment as to whether or not individual barristers are the subject of a complaint or a disciplinary investigation. If a complaint is received, or if information about potential misconduct by a barrister comes to our attention, it is dealt with in accordance with the procedures set out in detail on our website.

This isn’t the first time Hewson and her online shenanigans have hit national headlines.

In 2015 the civil law barrister branded the now ex-deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland a “cunt” on Twitter. In another colourful tweet, she called on several of the site’s users to “get off my tits, you cunts.”

The experienced lawyer also received widespread criticism after she called for the age of sexual consent to be lowered to just 13. Penning an article for online magazine Spiked back in 2013, she said the move was necessary to end the “persecution of old men”.

Hewson did not respond to Legal Cheek’s request for comment.

“The wouldn’t comment” which has been the problem all along. They allowed her to behave appallingly. Reflects badly.

Interesting comment under Legal Cheek article on Barbara Hewson…

Milo Ys resigns from Widebeard over views on paedophilia and issues apology. But hasn’t Barbara Hewson been vociferously supporting those same views?

Here’s John Hemming on trafficking children to Jersey. Why has he gone silent on issues like this?

Birmingham council illegally sent children into care in Jersey, MP report reveals

Paedophile Sir Jimmy Savile with children at Haut de la Garenne
The revelation comes amid continuing police investigations into 100 charred bone fragments and 65 milk teeth found at Jersey’s now notorious Haut de la Garenne former children’s home.

 

Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming, who discovered that his local city council had sent children to Jersey, believes other children from the UK ‘were also placed in care there’.

The MP for Birmingham Yardley added: ‘The Government has refused to order councils to check properly because it does not want to open a can of worms, on the links between abusers in England and Jersey.’

The Mail on Sunday has also learned that children from UK local authorities, which have also been the subject of abuse allegations, were taken on holiday to Haut de la Garenne, where the bone fragments are said to belong to five children whom detectives believe were killed.

Birmingham council discovered it had placed five children in foster care on Jersey because, at Mr Hemming’s request, it checked old accounts. It found it made payments to Jersey for child care between 1960 and 1990. Yet a social work file survived on only one child.

Schools Minister Kevin Brennan has told the Commons that checks are unnecessary because children from the UK cannot be placed in care in Jersey without a court order. Yet the five Birmingham children were sent to Jersey without such orders.

Mr Hemming has asked English councils to check their records under the Freedom of Information Act. He said: ‘Most seem only to have done cursory checks, just checking recent electronic files, or asking around the office.’

A handful of councils refused to check at all.

They included Islington in North London, whose 12 children’s homes were infamously infiltrated between the Seventies and Nineties by a child sex and pornography network, while Margaret Hodge was council leader.

Key staff were from Jersey or had strong Channel Islands connections. The council told Mr Hemming that checking its records would cost too much.

Liz Davies, the former Islington senior social worker who bravely blew the whistle on the scandal, said last night: ‘It is becoming clear that children at Haut de la Garenne were sent on holiday to children’s homes in England which were also notorious for abuse, while the children in the English homes they went to were sent to Haut de la Garenne. They literally swapped beds.’

Barrister ‘made death threats’ to student
April 12 2017

Barbara Hewson has been accused of online and other abuse. She came to prominence after calling for the age of consent to be lowered in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal

Police have issued a harassment warning to a barrister amid allegations that she waged a campaign of online bullying, abuse and “death threats” against a law student and another lawyer.

Barbara Hewson, 55, who came to prominence after the Jimmy Savile scandal when she called for the age of sexual consent to be substantially lowered, is the subject of mounting complaints to the Bar’s regulator.

At least three complaints have been lodged with the Bar Standards Board, The Times has learnt.

It has also emerged that Ms Hewson, a Court of Protection and human rights specialist, has within the past few weeks left her chambers, 1 Gray’s Inn Square, in London. The chambers, which is also home to the civil liberties lawyer Michael Mansfield, QC,…

Lawyer who was dubbed the ‘bolshiest barrister on Twitter’ and called for age of consent to be lowered to 13 ‘made death threats’ to law student

It is not the first time Miss Hewson has aroused controversy.

She caused outrage after the Jimmy Savile abuse allegations when she called for the age of consent to be lowered to 13 and for an end to the ‘persecution of old men’.

She has also questioned whether rape victims are ‘utterly innocent’ and suggested that they can have a ‘moral responsibility for the crime’.

Miss Hewson said rape victims had a ‘moral responsibility’ and cases were rarely straight forward where one party was ‘utterly guilty’ or ‘utterly innocent’.

And she described Scotland Yard’s investigations into historic sexual abuse as a ‘witch hunt’. 

In September 2016 Miss Hewson said it was time to ‘put an end to the whole fiasco’. Writing for the Daily Mail, she called for the inquiry into historic abuse to be closed.

Staff at the Shirley Oaks home, doctors, teachers, vicars and football coaches have all been named

An explosive report into sexual abuse and ‘widespread corruption’ at a Croydon children’s home includes the names of 27 people abuse survivors claim are paedophiles.

Shirley Oaks Survivors Association (SOSA) published the report today following its two-year-long investigation into child abuse inside south London’s care system.

Testimonies of more than 400 residents of children’s homes have been included in the findings, which were shared today at a conference in central London.

Staff at the Shirley Oaks home, doctors, teachers, vicars and football coaches have all been named in the report.

The report claims at least 60 paedophiles operated in the Wickham Road children’s home, and 27 alleged abusers have now been named.

“Shirley Oaks seemed to develop a model for paedophiles that worked. That was the ability to control the movement of children and that was replicated in Lambeth council.”

SOSA’s report claims 31 paedophiles were connected to the home or the authority, including Philip Temple, a former senior housefather at Rowan House at Shirley Oaks who was jailed for 12 years in August for abusing 12 young people over 25 years.

Michael Mansfield is representing the survivors.

Married music teacher at £33,000-a-year boarding school subjected teenage schoolgirl to ‘vile’ bondage abuse in violin lessons then critiqued her sexual technique

  • Dara de Cogan had taught at top private school Ampleforth College since 2004 
  • The married teacher lusted after the girl who saw him as a ‘substitute father’
  • He subjected her to bondage sessions and then critiqued her like a music lesson 
  • The 58-year-old was sentenced to 28 months in prison at York Crown Court
  • De Cogan was also made to sign the sex offenders register for ten years
28 March 2017

A music teacher at a top private school subjected a girl to ‘vile’ bondage sessions and critiqued her sexual technique in the same he would her violin playing.

Married Dara de Cogan, now 58, had lusted after the girl – who was more than 30 years his junior and saw him as a ‘substitute father’ – since she was 13.

York Crown Court heard the girl was a gifted student at £33,000-a-year Ampleforth College, in North Yorkshire.

De Cogan, born in Ireland, was also a musician of international acclaim who was appointed Head of Strings at the boarding school, which boasts Rupert Everett and James Norton among its alumni, in 2004.

The married man, who has two adopted daughters, tutored her in the violin.

 

£33,000-a-year Ampleforth College, in North Yorkshire, which boasts Rupert Everett and James Norton among its alumni

The girl, now in her 20s, said in a victim impact statement read to the court that her musical ambitions after university had been thwarted by what she has gone through.

She added: ‘He took advantage of me in the most manipulative and vile way possible.

Judge Andrew Stubbs told him: ‘You took advantage of her immaturity, insecurity and innocence.

Dara de Cogan leaves York Crown Court to start his prison sentence for having sexual activity with a pupil

 

‘When parents send their children to school they entrust their most precious possession to the care and protection of others.

‘This was an abject failure of trust both in the college and you.’

De Cogan, of Kilburn village, North Yorkshire, admitted ten counts of sexual activity with a child while in a position of trust.

He was jailed for 28 months with half to be served and ordered to sign on a sex offenders register for ten years.

De Cogan bowed to the judge and smiled to his family before being handcuffed in the dock and taken into custody.

His wife of more than 25 years who sat in the public gallery was said by the defence to be standing by him.

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

He started his music with legendary Irish violinist Mary Gallagher and continued his studies at the Royal College of Music with Jaraslav Vanecek.

In 1982, he joined the Hall Orchestra in Manchester and became Principal Second Violin in 1986.

During his time in Manchester, he worked extensively with special needs children particularly with the Royal Schools for the Deaf. (the current queen is its patron.)

The Royal Schools has some 78 children – It is claimed that the Royal Schools for the Deaf in Cheadle Hulme had a culture of neglect. Social services in Stockport, the borough in which the school is based, received a number of allegations from former members of staff.

Formerly the Royal School for the Deaf, Queen Victoria bestowed royal patronage upon them during her Jubilee year in 1897. In 2008 the charity changed its name to Seashell Trust and now comprises Royal School Manchester and Royal College Manchester.

Seashell Trust has maintained strong connections with the Royal family and in recent years they have had the pleasure of welcoming several members of the Royal family to their site, notably Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

School for deaf accused of ‘catalogue of child abuse’

A YEAR-LONG investigation of a leading school for the deaf by police and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children has disclosed “an appalling catalogue of child abuse and neglect”.

Among the allegations are that some pupils at the Royal School for the Deaf in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport, Greater Manchester, suffered broken bones and lost teeth, while others were subjected to unwarranted restraining procedures.

NSPCC officials also investigated claims that deaf or emotionally disturbed children had been punched, tied up and doused with water hoses.

Ian MacLeary, the school’s chief executive, said a new governing body had dealt with many of the issues raised in the report. New training procedures had also been introduced.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1315837/School-for-deaf-accused-of-catalogue-of-child-abuse.html

A year-long child protection investigation carried out by the
NSPCC for the council severely criticised the Royal Schools for the Deaf Manchester over allegations of abuse between 1995 and 2000.
Four members of staff were suspended last year and police
investigations resulted in five cases being passed to the Crown
Prosecution Service. The CPS has rejected four of the cases.

The full NSPCC report is confidential, but the school has agreed
to implement a 21-point action plan published by the council.

Royal School for the Deaf in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport, Greater Manchester,

9 AUG 2004

Today, despite the year-long inquiry into unexplained injuries to children as well as into poor care and practice, it emerged that no one is likely to face criminal prosecution. Youngsters at the school are regarded as incapable of giving evidence in court.

Last year the MEN revealed how Mark Fisher, 33, – who later resigned in disgust after nine years as a support worker at the school – and two colleagues compiled a dossier detailing 142 allegations of abuse by staff. The evidence was handed to social services and to the police.

Dominic Tinner, development manager at the school, admitted there had been ”deficiencies in management and practice”
12 April 2001

A spokesman for the National Deaf Children’s Society, said it was appalled by the NSPCC report and was gravely concerned by the extent of abuse at the school.

Unless significant immediate action was taken by the school, the society would advise parents to move their children elsewhere.

New boss named for troubled deaf school

A CHILD welfare expert has been drafted in as the new boss of the troubled Royal Schools for the Deaf, Manchester.

  • 9 AUG 2004
  • Updated: 22 JAN 2013

A CHILD welfare expert has been drafted in as the new boss of the troubled Royal Schools for the Deaf, Manchester.

NSPCC director Karen Wright, a 47-year-old mother of four, will take up the chief executive’s post in July.

Her appointment comes just over a week after headteacher Leighton Reed resigned following a year-long inquiry by the NSPCC.

Ms Wright was not involved in the probe, which found “serious problems” with the school at Cheadle Hulme, Stockport.

The investigation was launched after the M.E.N. revealed how whistleblowing staff members compiled a dossier of allegations, including physical abuse of pupils.

It was claimed children suffered broken bones, were tied up in wheelchairs and one was hosed down with cold water.

Ms Wright said: “I was not involved in the investigation, although I was kept aware of it.

The current chief executive, Ian MacLeary, retires on July 1, when he turns 65. The charity says his retirement is unconnected to the scandal.

Four members of staff were suspended by the school, which said there were innocent explanations for injuries suffered by pupils.

  • Police interviewed dozens of members of staff, but the Crown Prosecution Service decided there was no realistic chance of securing convictions because the alleged victims, who suffer physical and learning disabilities as well as deafness, would be incapable of giving evidence.

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

link

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.

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 2

017

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.

Ampleforth College, where teacher Sean Farrell worked in the 1980s

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.”

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.’

Tories BOW to wealthy antiques dealers and DROP ban on elephant ivory in manifesto

Foxes, badgers, robins and now ELEPHANTS: hidden manifesto plan by Tories to allow ivory trade

Under David Cameron the Conservatives had pledged – along with other UK political parties – to put into place a ban on ivory trading. This follows bans by China, the US and other important ivory trading countries to end domestic trades in ivory by the end of 2017.

But there is no mention of the ban in Theresa May’s Tory 2017 manifesto. Sneakily, the Tories have decided to DROP their previous commitment to introducing a total ban on ivory trade in Britain. This comes after heavy pressure from wealthy antiques traders who have been lobbying Teresa May hard to drop the ban on ivory.

The most powerful UK antique traders association is the British Antique Dealers’ Association – whose president is Tory MP and pal of Theresa May, Lady Victoria Borwick.

On average, an elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory and their population has fallen by almost a third in Africa since 2007.

Interestingly, this policy puts the Tories in direct conflict with Prince William, who has been a vocal supporter of a total ban on ivory sales.

Will we see the Duke of Cambridge campaigning for Labour – which has pledged to introduce the total ban the Prince has been lobbying for?

The Busy Borwicks

Son of Kensington MP Lady Borwick’s curious connections to the people who ensured both Brexit and the election of Donald Trump revealed

On Sunday, Carole Cadwalladr of  The Observer published a lengthy and well researched article that, amongst other things, examined the connections between The Hon. Thomas Borwick – the son of the Conservative hereditary peer The Rt. Hon. The Lord Borwick and Kensington’s Member of Parliament Lady ‘Call me Victoria’ Borwick – and the controversial US hedge fund titan and backer of Donald Trump, Robert Mercer.

 

A director of a multitude of companies, in spite of being just 29 years old, “new media expert” Thomas Borwick – whose mother was forced to apologise “after using City Hall resources to promote her husband’s [now defunct] electric vehicle business” in 2009 – it now transpires, was not only Vote Leave’s chief technology officer but previously worked with SCL/Cambridge Analytica and AggregateIQ. Borwick currently touts himself to his 202 followers on Twitter as the founder of a political canvasing consultancy named Kan.to, an organisation that he boldy claims “will out-organise, out-plan, out-leaflet, out-twitter, out-work and out-vote all of its opponents”.

Mercer, one of the owners of the far-right Breitbart News Network as well as being a major shareholder in Cambridge Analytica, is a man whose “sinister” connections to both Trump and Nigel Farage have rightly been widely criticised. On that basis, that the son of fervent Brexiteer Lady Borwick – a woman whose constituents voted 69% to ‘Remain’ and whose domain was home to a greater proportion of EU nationals than any other London borough in 2016 – has links to this billionaire and his activities should only encourage the voters of Kensington to ditch her and her out-of-touch party.

‘The rest of my friends quickly came outside. From our group absolutely all of them did nothing aggressive to the ladies, but they continued to react though and many of my friends were attacked.

The computer app writer was queuing with friends when they became embroiled in a row with the women over space.

‘Tom was among a group of six friends on a night out in London,’ said Lady Borwick, who was previously Boris Johnson’s deputy.

Revealed: The ‘triple dipper’ Conservative MP who is paid nearly £100,000 a year for three elected jobs

Victoria Borwick, the MP for Kensington, is paid an extra £30,000 a year as both a councillor at Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and member of the London Assembly

Mrs Borwick, 59, whose application to replace Sir Malcolm Rifkind in the seat was personally backed by London Mayor Boris Johnson, defended her decision.

She can use the title “Lady” because she is married to Lord Borwick, a hereditary peer who has sat in the House of Lords since 2013. The couple live in a £6.6million home in Chelsea and have four children.

Mrs Borwick’s predecessor as MP for Kensington Sir Malcolm Rifkind had complained that it was “unrealistic” to live on £60,000 shortly before quitting after being caught in a cash for access investigation by The Daily Telegraph in February.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/11686725/Revealed-The-triple-dipper-MP-who-is-paid-nearly-100000-a-year-for-three-jobs.html

She paid tribute to Sir Malcolm Rifkind, saying: “Many people will be sad to see someone so distinguished leave. They are very grateful for all that he did in services to our country and also to Kensington. I have big shoes to fill.”

“The Tories got rid of one Rifkind (Cash for Access) and now replaced him with ‘Madam Rifkind’, who thinks it is perfectly reasonable to use these jobs to rake in as much money as possible.”

Slumming it: Tory Lady ventures into East End

Role reversal? Could this be the first time a young East Ender gets to look down on a Victoria Lady?
Role reversal? Could this be the first time a young East Ender gets to look down on a Victoria Lady?
Since the Tories headed up the Coalition after the 2010 General Election, they have been making cuts in public spending and presiding over austerity measures which have made life harder for ordinary Eastenders. Government attacks such as the bedroom tax and welfare benefit tax have left many East End families only able to buy the cheapest, unhealthiest food – or forced them to supplement their own buying with trips to the food bank.

Against this backdrop, Lady Borwick, aka Assembly Member Victoria Lorne Peta Borwick, a Deputy Mayor of London, deigned to drop into Tower Hamlets last week to claim the credit for Tower Hamlets’ work in promoting good health in its schools (that’s the schools which Lady Borwick’s party is trying to dismantle).

2007:

Trump crony Rudy Giuliaini drew inspiration from Winston Churchill in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 terror attack on New York, he revealed.

Mr Giuliani cited the alliance between Churchill and Roosevelt, Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan and Tony Blair and George W Bush as evidence of the powerful bond between Britain and the US. He would make it his mission as President to strengthen the relationship further.

The lunch was attended by about 100 wealthy Americans and dozens of London-based US correspondents.

Conservative mayoral contender Victoria Borwick, who has pledged to introduce Giuliani-style zero tolerance policing, was the only senior Tory present at the lunch at the Hyde Park Mandarin hotel. 

“He is a brilliant political leader,” she said.

Mr Giuliani is due to meet Margaret Thatcher tonight at the same hotel before delivering his keynote speech on his manifesto for a 2008 Republican presidential victory.

Rudy Guiliani

Back in 1984, Giuliani was U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.  During that time, allegations began to surface about physical and sexual abuse perpetrated on children at the day care center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Giuliani knew there were multiple children being abused.  And yet he did not indict anyone.  Not receiving justice from Giuliani, the parents pursued civil action.  The government ended up paying 11 victims $2.7 million, but protected its image, thanks to Rudy.

MP criticises Met police chiefs over paedophile operation

 

By Caroline Wheeler

AN MP has criticised three of Britain’s police chiefs over their handling of the Westminster paedophile scandal, questioning their “suitability” for office.

 

Sir Gerald Howarth lambasted Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe Metropolitan Police commissioner for ordering Operation Midland, which examined allegations against ex-Army chief Lord Bramall, former home secretary Leon Brittan and former Tory MP Harvey Proctor.

Was (Caroline Wheeler) not aware that is longtime close friend of Spanker Proctor?

He was a close lifelong friend of Harvey Proctor. In Proctor’s own words:


The Express could have told us that Howarth was GenSec for Society for Individual Freedom and Monday Club member!

Gerald Howarth MP of Paedogeddon!


Harvey Proctor & friends:

Imogen Skirving often entertained me in her private library…

Imogen also has a love affair with India. It is our mutual interest and desire. She has visited India many times and we have visited the same locations and restaurants in northern Goa… Terry and I once searched out Imogen’s daughter Louise on a beach there…

Imogen Skirving  – The owner of a country hotel, Langar Hall favoured by the elite, died after being hit by a car while holidaying on Menorca.

Former Labour Party leader Ed Miliband married wife Justine Thornton there in May 2011.

Actress Sarah Lancashire also chose the venue to wed TV executive Peter Salmon in August 2001.

Liz Cartwright, owner of Nottingham Public Relations firm Cartwright Communications, said: ‘I’ve never been to Langar Hall and not had an adventure.

‘You’d see people like Jools Holland and Paul Smith.

‘My husband and I went there once and Imogen paired us with Ken Bates, who then owned Chelsea, and his partner.’

BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew added: ‘We will all miss Imogen dreadfully. Eccentric, funny lady who ran a brilliant business.’

“I was in politics … Conservative of course, there’s no point being anything else around here,” she said.

Despite leaving the world of politics behind, she retains an admiration for her local Tory MP

“Ken Clarke, I love him, he’s the only person I rate in politics at all,” she said.

“I’m a big fan of Ken Clarke, he’s the best prime minister we never had.”

Friends who joined family and staff in St Andrew’s included the Duchess of Rutland and Lord Falconer, the former Lord Chancellor, who has a home near Newark.

The service was led by the Rev Bronwen Gamble, Rector of the Wiverton Group of Parishes, and the address was given by Canon Alan Haydock, another personal friend.

It was once the home of Thomas Bayley, Mrs Skirving’s great grandfather, a coal magnate and the Liberal MP for Chesterfield from 1892 to 1906.

Its isolated location next to a 12th Century church outside Nottingham, has helped make it popular with celebrities as a quiet and low-key retreat.

Keira Knightley, the actress, and Jack Dee and Michael McIntyre, the comedians, are among recent guests while Sir Cliff Richard and the designer Sir Paul Smith are regulars, as was the late Dame Barbara Cartland.

about us

History

The BSR was founded in 1901 and received its first Royal Charter in June 1912. Following the International Exhibition in Rome of 1911 celebrating 50 years since Italian reunification, the site of the magnificent Edwin Lutyens-designed British Pavilion was granted in perpetuity to the British nation on condition that it be used exclusively as a British research centre for archaeology, history and the fine arts. In 1916, following significant adaptation by Lutyens, the BSR moved into our current home in via Gramsci, in Rome’s Valle Giulia.

Over the BSR’s first century our facilities for scholars have been substantially extended and refurbished, most recently through generous help from the Packard Humanities Institute and Lord and Lady Sainsbury of Preston Candover’s Linbury Trust, amongst many other sponsors. In 2002 the purpose-built lecture theatre and gallery spaces were opened by our President, HRH Princess Alexandra

Alastair who apparently wrote the book ‘Baroque and Rococo Architecture and Decoration’ with Blunt. Although cunningly enough the Wiki link shows a slightly different spelling of Laing. (An attempt to hide a link no doubt) The book is given as a source for a study on a baroque architect in NAPLES so ties in nicely. This is a deliciously obvious example of how they close documents from view for 76 years in order to hide from us the fact that we now have a link between Colin Peters and Blunt, both guests of Elm Guest House. The link being that they both knew Alastair Laing, one wrote a book with him and the other was arrested with with him.

Francesco Antonio Picchiatti (Ferrara, 1619–1694) was an Italian architect of the Baroque period active in Naples. He is also called Picchetto. He was son of Bartolommeo Picchiatti, who also served as an architect in Naples.

Truthseeker1 ‏@thewakeupcall09Pedophiles arrested in Britain eirv16n08, p42Pedophiles arrested in Britain eirv16n08, p43Investigators working on the Colin Peters case had interrogated at east one senior member of the House of Lords, one vicar in West London and officials in Whitehall, “but the police did not have sufficient evidence or manpower to pursue their suspi­cions,” the Telegraph reported.So who was the paedophile senior member of the House of Lords in 1989 ?Is Colin Peters connected to Italian paedophile Alessandro Mon­cini ?Alessandro Moncini, a citizen and resident of Italy, appeals his conviction under 18 U.S.C. § 2252(a) for mailing child pornography from Italy to an undercover officer in the United States. He raises three issues on appeal: (1) whether the district court lacked jurisdiction over him; (2) whether the government should have been required to prove that he knew he was violating American law, or, in the alternative, whether the district court should have recognized ignorance of the law as an affirmative defense; and (3) whether the district court erred in finding that he was not entrapped. We affirm.FACTSMoncini was contacted by Detective William H. Dworin of the Los Angeles Police Department after Dworin discovered Moncini’s name and address in a search of an American pornography collector. Dworin sent Moncini a letter containing a photograph of a nude girl, inquiring whether Moncini would be interested in trading child pornography. Dworin led Moncini to believe the American pornography collector was a mutual acquaintance.Moncini wrote back and asked for more pictures. Dworin complied, but Moncini did not reciprocate by sending similar pictures in return. Dworin eventually asked Moncini to send him some child pornography, offering to send Moncini more explicit material if Moncini would send him child pornography to prove his involvement “with the young ones.” Moncini responded by sending some pages torn from a commercially sold pornography magazine. He subsequently mailed additional pictures and a videotape. Moncini concedes that these pictures and videotape were child pornography of the type proscribed by 18 U.S.C. § 2252.Moncini was arrested when he arrived in New York in early 1988. He was tried in the Central District of California, which includes Valencia, the place to which the photos were sent. His motion to dismiss the indictment for lack of jurisdiction was denied on the ground that the mailings were continuing offenses which continued to take place as Moncini’s letters traveled from Italy to California, giving the court territorial jurisdiction. Alternately, the court found that extraterritorial jurisdiction would be proper.Moncini waived jury trial. His principal defense was ignorance of the law. The district court received uncontroverted evidence in the form of an affidavit by a former member of the Italian bar that the mailing of child pornography is legal in Italy so long as it is not for commercial purposes or purposes of public display. Moncini asserts that he was unaware that his mailing of child pornography was a crime in the United States. The court convicted him and sentenced him to a year-and-a-day custodial sentence. He has completed his sentence and is now at liberty.law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/F2/882/401/207502/

Will you please make available details of all communications between yourself and ‘Community Care’ / ‘CareSpace’ in relation to the ‘Carespace’ thread of 23 February 2012 entitled ‘What do you think of children’s services inspection?

In particular will you please refer directly to any issues around the postings by a contributor ‘Rupert M’ and ‘Boxerdog’ which ‘Community Care’ advise me were removed as a result of direct allegations of them being libellous towardsJohn Goldup, deputy Head of OFSTED.

Will you please confirm that this same John Goldup is the same person who was a senior social work manager within Islington at the time of the Islington child sexual abuse scandal of the 1980’s and 1990’s.

Yours faithfully,

Virginia Bottomley, Sandy Marks, Margaret Hodge
Following yesterday’s publication, Mrs Bottomley issued a statement saying she had instructed Islington Council to explain its actions ‘as soon as possible’.
The council also issued a statement from Labour councillor Sandy Marks, who chairs the social services committee.
‘The case of Roy Caterer was the subject of a Hertfordshire police investigation. No evidence or information was passed to the council.’
We (The Standard)  reply: This is clearly wrong. Caterer was only imprisoned for sexually abusing children in care when a determined Islington social worker found some of his victims and went to local police. They liaised with Hertfordshire police. That social worker wrote a report for her superiors and no action was taken on it.
Councillor Marks also claimed children interviewed by the Standard were paid.
And Mrs Margaret Hodge, leader of Islington Council, alleged in a radio interview with LBC Newstalk Radio that our reporters sat outside childrens home enticing children with £50 bribes for stories.
We reply: These allegations are absolutely untrue

2009

Mail on Sunday, 4th October 2009

THE Government’s childcare watchdog has been heavily criticised after appointing to a senior post an official embroiled in a notorious paedophile scandal.

Ofsted has named John Goldup as its social care director – a job which gives him effective control of the protection of youngsters in care homes and nurseries across the UK.

At the time of his appointment, Mr Goldup said: I am absolutely convinced that effective inspection and regulation are the key to driving up improvement.

But during the Eighties and early Nineties, Mr Goldup was the second most senior figure in the children’s department at Islington Council in North London.

The council was savaged in a series of official reports after whistleblowers revealed how a child sex ring had operated throughout the borough’s care homes for a number of years.

An independent inquiry headed by Ian White – then director of social services in Oxfordshire – found that the council was in a deplorable state.

The report added: Line managers should have visited children’s homes, should have taken necessary action, should have spoken to children and … should have responded to allegations as serious as the ones made and now investigated.

Mr Goldup had left his post by the middle of 1994 and has spent the past 15 years with another London borough, most recently in charge of services for the elderly and disabled.

In 1992, the council was asked by police investigating the abuse allegations for paperwork relating to Nick Rabet, who helped run one of the homes. He was later exposed as a key organiser of the sex ring. Despite the existence of a number of documents raising concerns about him, in particular his unhealthy relationship with a 13-year-old boy, Rabet’s file had mysteriously disappeared.
At the same time, four staff who had raised concerns about the 58-year-old and other suspected paedophiles working in Islington’s homes were sacked, demoted or threatened.

Rabet killed himself in Thailand three years ago while awaiting trial there for child abuse. He was charged with molesting 30 underage boys and was believed to have abused up to 300 more.

Detective Chief Superintendent Kevin Moore, of Sussex Police, which investigated Rabet, said Islington actively thwarted attempts in the early Nineties to bring Rabet and his cohorts to justice.

He said: If we’d had the usual co-operation that you expect and deserve from other agencies, it’s a very strong likelihood we would have got a conviction.

Clearly, if you don’t get that co-operation – and in this case we didn’t – you cannot get a case to put before the court, and justice was denied.

We are all in a position of trust and of trusting each other to do what’s right, but in this case that trust was abused.
When it was founded, Ofsted was responsible largely for school inspections. But in 2007, its remit was significantly extended to cover children’s social care and support services.

A spokesman for Ofsted said: John Goldup has a long and distinguished track record in delivering care services, most recently leading Tower Hamlets to an outstanding rating for its adult services for five years in a row.

There is nothing to question John Goldup’s integrity or his ability to fully and professionally carry out his role at Ofsted, a role he was appointed to following a fully independent and robust recruitment process.

The panel were fully aware of every aspect of his employment history throughout this process.

While allegations relating to Islington are ultimately a matter for the council, we are confident there is nothing to support suggestions that he acted, then or at any other time, in anything other than a professional manner.

Ofsted has full confidence in John in his vital new role as director of social care development.

‘I want to change perceptions of Ofsted’ – John Goldup

Rifts are deepening with the Association for Directors of Children’s Services and local authorities over unannounced inspections and the criteria used to mark safeguarding services as inadequate. Relations with the ADCS fell to an all-time low in October with numerous allegations that Ofsted’s inspection regime was actually working to undermine public confidence in children’s services.

Ofsted social care chief John Goldup to quit with Debbie Jones taking over

05 March 2013

Ofsted’s deputy chief inspector and director of social care John Goldup is to leave the inspectorate by “mutual agreement” this month and will be replaced by the current president of the Association of Directors of Children’s Services, CYP Now can exclusively reveal.

CYP Now has learned that ADCS president Debbie Jones, who is director of children’s services in Lambeth, will take on the role from September.

Only last month Ofsted announced that Jones would join as London regional director for education, learning and skills.

Goldup joined Ofsted in September 2009 as director of social care development, before being appointed deputy chief inspector in January 2012.

An Ofsted spokeswoman confirmed that Goldup will leave “by mutual agreement” at the end of March 2013.

“In his three and a half years with Ofsted, John has reformed social care regulation and inspection, and has firmly established Ofsted as a powerful force for improvement in social care services for children,” the inspectorate said in a statement.

“Having led a step change in this area of Ofsted’s work, John has concluded that it is time to take his career in a different direction.

“He has agreed with the Ofsted board that this is the right moment to leave the organisation, and the board and his colleagues wish him every success as he moves on to face new and different challenges.

“Debbie Jones will take over on the national lead for social care when she joins Ofsted as regional director, London, on 1 September 2013. In the interim Sally Rowe will be acting national director, social care, as well as regional director for the north west.”

John Goldup still failing at his job to protect children…

Rotherham inspectors ‘did not have the focus’

A former senior official at children’s care watchdog Ofsted has apologised for the organisation’s failure to uncover widespread sexual exploitation in Rotherham.

John Goldup, who joined Ofsted as director of social care in 2009 and was appointed deputy chief inspector in 2012, said that the watchdog did not focus as it should have done on the dangers of child sex exploitation in inspections in the South Yorkshire town.

Rotherham Council was last week taken under Government control and its entire political leadership resigned after the Casey Report’s withering indictment of its failure to tackle monumental levels of child sexual exploitation.

Louise Casey’s report came after an inquiry by Alexis Jay last year found that more than 1,400 children had been subjected to rape, violence and trafficking by gangs of mainly Asian men over a 16-year period.

Giving evidence to the House of Commons Communities and Local Government Committee, Mr Goldup was asked whether he wanted to apologise to children in Rotherham.

The former deputy chief inspector stressed that he could not speak on behalf of Ofsted, but told MPs: “Yes I do. I agree entirely with what (Ofsted head) Sir Michael Wilshaw said to the Education Select Committee two weeks ago, that we didn’t get it right with child sexual exploitation in Rotherham. He apologised for that and I apologise for that.

“The inspection frameworks at the time didn’t have the focus on child sexual exploitation that they would and should have had if we had known and understood then what we know and understand now.

“It is clear from reading back over the inspection reports that we didn’t appreciate the scale of the child sexual exploitation issue in Rotherham and we didn’t scrutinise sufficiently the effectiveness with which it was being responded to.”

New head, John Goldup, for board tasked with turning around ‘inadequate’ children’s services in Bucks

21st April 2015

An expert has been drafted in to head up a team tasked with turning around ‘inadequate’ children’s services in Buckinghamshire.

The government has appointed former deputy chief inspector John Goldup has been appointed chair of Bucks Children’s Improvement Board.

It comes after a series of recommendations made by Government consultants, who examined the county council’s plans for improvement following Ofsted’s ‘inadequate’ rating of its Children’s social care services last August.

Mr Goldup, who also held the post of National Director of Social Care at Ofsted, was formally appointed by the Secretary of State for Education, will chair his first meeting on the independent body on Thursday.

Chief Executive Chris Williams who previously chaired the board, has welcomed his appointment.

He said: “A new independent chair will ensure both complete transparency and an extra dimension of challenge to the work of the Improvement Board.

“We have robust plans in place to improve services as quickly as we can and with John’s chairmanship I know we can deliver on our aspirations.

“Stepping aside from chairing the Board will allow me to fully concentrate on supporting my managers to drive the Improvement Plan at pace.”

Last month, Children’s services in the county were judged ‘inadequate’ by government inspectors in a national study – placing care provisions in Buckinghamshire alongside scandal-hit Rotherham.

Buckinghamshire County Council was one of seven local authorities in Britain to be named as inadequate by Ofsted, after failings were first identified last August.

Hours after the announcement, the council’s chief executive Chris Williams revealed at a County Hall meeting that independent advisors had recommended he should step down from his role as chairman of the authority’s improvement board.

The report judged Bucks as inadequate alongside the councils in Birmingham, Coventry, Knowsley, Manchester, Slough and Rotherham.

In the third of our special series on Islington’s notorious kids’ homes, Emma Youle meets survivors – and hears how their lives were torn apart by the very institutions that should have protected them

Calling for a full police-led inquiry, Imogen said: “Those people who were running children’s homes, they need to be accountable. The whole structure has to change. It’s like the Church – it’s no good going after individual priests. You need to go after the establishment that harboured these people.”

NEXT WEEK: In the final part of this series, a care worker and survivors who lived at Gisburne House home speak out – and will Jeremy Corbyn support demands for a police-led inquiry?

Gisburne House was in Watford @Observer_Owl used by Islington council to send children out of borough – several abusers amongst staff

Importantly @guyadams reported Gisburne House cater Michael Taylor revealed as PIE member in his 2000 trial & conviction



Pre formalisation of PIE in Islington there was the Finsbury Park Man/Boy Free Love commune-well documented in Anarchy magazine at the time

Ex Anglican Franciscan Michael Taylor, PIE member, abuser of boys at  GisburneHouse,

#Islington & #Bersham Hall, #Clwyd

So this is where it comes full circle back to Peter Righton – also an Anglican Franciscan for a while – & the @c_of_e monastic movement(s)

 

so favoured by Bishop Peter Ball he simply had to set up his own entire movement, just like Father Trevor Huddlestone’s alma mater the college & community of the Resurrection, Mirfield

Peter Righton’s time in retreat as an Anglican Franciscan is also central to the involvement of the Southbank Trio & Albany Trust

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

The Department of Health and then-Health-Secretary Virginia Bottomley were told in 1993 about an influential network involving Righton. but appear to have done nothing. Nor does there appear to have been much action following the disturbing Inside Story documentary on Righton broadcast the following year, with various testimonies of Righton’s victims .

After Righton was convicted, receiving a £900 fine, in September 1992, he was able to relocate on the estate of Lord Henniker in 1993, and continue to have contact with children in care, many of who (not least from Islington) were regularly brought to the estate (Stewart Payne and Eileen Fairweather, ‘Country house hideaway of disgraced care chief’, Evening Standard, May 6th, 1993).

I’M NO THREAT TO KIDS ANY MORE

February 18, 2000, Friday, The Mirror, Paul Byrne

 

A CONVICTED sex offender named by the inquiry told The Mirror last night he is no longer a threat to children.

Michael Taylor said: “I don’t work with children and I have no intention of doing anything like that.” In an emotional interview he added: “I am not working with children and I have not been for many years.”

Taylor, 58 – No2 in charge at Bersham Hall home in Wrexham, Clwyd – was convicted by the town’s magistrates in 1980 of two indecent assaults and given two years’ probation. In 1993 he was cautioned for six more indecent assaults.

He is one of 28 “missing” people named in the report as potential dangers to young people.

The list was circulated to agencies across the UK amid fears that many could still be working with children.

But Taylor, a cabbie in Nantwich, Cheshire, till he retired after a heart attack last month, said he has lived openly at the same house for 20 years.

He had no idea what his neighbours’ reaction would be to revelation of his sex crimes. “I just want to be left alone.”

July 2000

A social worker who abused two boys at an Islington Council children’s home in the 1970s was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment earlier this week.

Michael Taylor pleaded guilty at London’s Snaresbrook crown court to seven counts of indecent assault at Gisburne House.

When he left Gisburne House he became deputy superintendent of Bersham Hall children’s home in North Wales where he repeatedly assaulted two 11-year-old boys in his care.

Taylor was arrested after the people he abused, now adults, went to the police. He was previously convicted of two indecent assaults in 1980. His name will be added to the sex offenders’ register.

Diplomat jailed over hoard of child porn

6 September 1996

 

Robert Coghlan, a diplomat, was jailed for three years yesterday for smuggling a hoard of “filthy” child pornography into Britain. The divorced father of two, the first British envoy to be convicted of such an offence, spent thousands of pounds in Japanese sex-shops.

Coghlan, 54, was building up his illicit video collection when he helped the Princess of Wales around Tokyo last year. He ended up with the biggest consignment of paedophile material seized by Customs recently – sacks of tapes depicting boys as young as 11 being abused.

Passing sentence at Southwark Crown Court, Judge Gerald Butler QC told the former first secretary: “There is no evidence … that you used or intended to use this obscene material for any purpose other than for your own sexual gratification but a custodial sentence is inevitable. I am satisfied beyond doubt that you always knew that large numbers of these video cassettes involved the exploitation, abuse and degradation of children. If it were not for men such as you to provide a market for this filth, there would be no incentive for others to manufacture and sell them for their own profit.”

Coghlan, of Danbury Street, Islington, north London, was found guilty on Thursday of one charge of smuggling 109 obscene videos into Britain last March. The court heard he worked four and a half years in Tokyo. When told he was being transferred to Madrid, he “desperately” tried to ensure his “precious” films arrived safely.

He hoped his status and a false last-minute declaration that he had no prohibitive goods among his shipped belongings would be enough. But Customs men searched some of his luggage and found the tapes. Coghlan’s defence was that as he had always believed his belongings would be shipped directly to Spain, he could never have had any intention of smuggling them into Britain.

When he found they were coming here, he had “no option” but to lie on a Customs clearance form.

Denying he was a paedophile, he insisted he ended up with the videos only because he could not properly translate the labels. Coghlan said that he had never been certain what he was buying, an assertion rejected by the judge.

A government spokesman said Coghlan’s case was being examined under the Foreign Office’s disciplinary procedure. A Foreign Office spokesman refused to say whether Coghlan’s dismissal was a foregone conclusion.

However, another source said it was “inconceivable” that the envoy would be kept on.

OH MY! Who was Chairman of the ISLINGTON COMMITTEE FOR COMMUNITY RELATIONS in 1969. 15 Clifton Gardens

Revealed: Police were ‘given name of paedophile priest Father Eugene as early as 1992’

08 June 2017

Eugene-Fitzpatrick

Eugene Fitzpatrick

The name of a paedophile priest who raped and assaulted boys for decades before being jailed last month was handed to police in 1992

 

“Father Eugene” was identified in information about suspected child abuse given to former Islington social worker and whistleblower Liz Davies, who passed it on to police.

Dr Davies contacted the Gazette after reading our story last week about Father Eugene Fitzpatrick, who was jailed for 22 years for carrying out horrific abuse at Our Lady and Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Balls Pond Road and elsewhere in Islington.

It follows an investigation by the Gazette that revealed new evidence about child abuse in the borough in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.

Dr Davies and former Evening Standard journalist Eileen Fairweather, who blew the lid on the borough’s child abuse scandal in 1992, have both confirmed the name “Father Eugene” was passed to Scotland Yard.

Liz said: “I had left employment with Islington Council when I received information from other social workers about allegations of abuse of children which included the name of a ‘Father Eugene’. There was no surname at that time and I did not know who he was.

“I reported this to Supt Mike Hames in person who was head of the obscene publications squad at the time. I understand he sent this information to the Islington police. The Det Insp at the time was Sue Akers.”

Eileen added: “His name was included in information about people preying on kids in care and it was passed to police. Liz and others, and the Evening Standard, were consistently asking the police to investigate it.”

Scotland Yard denied it had been aware of Fitzpatrick earlier than 2007.

“Police became aware of the allegations initially in 2007 but were unable to substantiate them with the victim and so could not proceed further,” said a spokesman.

“The allegations again were brought to police attention in October 2014 and an investigation launched.”

Fitzpatrick’s first known attack was on the first boy, who was aged under eight, when the pervert was 17.

It happened in Tufnell Park in 1965.

There were a further 10 counts of sexual assaults on the same boy until 1973, by which time he was training to be a priest.

He raped the second boy on multiple occasions between 1986 and 1992.

Maddie Noonan, 59, who used to live near Our Lady and Saint Joseph Church, told the Hackney Gazette of her shock at the actions of the priest she considered a family friend, and who conducted her wedding.

“He was the local parish priest. We lived in Balls Pond Road and moved to Mildmay Park.

“He married me and he was a very close friend of my grandmother. He was always in our house, we loved him.”

Maddie, who now lives in Ireland, added: “I was very close to him as an adult.

Father Eugene Fitzpatrick, 68, was found guilty of rape and assault charges at Blackfriars Crown Court on 25 May 2017 and has been jailed for 22 years.

Our Lady and Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Church. Picture: Google Maps

Fitzpatrick raped and assaulted one boy while working at Our Lady and Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Balls Pond Road. He also indecently assaulted another boy throughout the 1960s and 1970s.

Fitzpatrick was found guilty of 11 counts of indecent assault and indecency with a child relating to the first victim, for which he received a total of five years.

Detective Constables Lorraine Simpson and Klementina Balint, the investigating officers, said:

“Eugene Fitzpatrick is a predatory sex offender who abused his position of trust, preying on vulnerable youngsters and subjecting them to horrific sexual abuse over a period of years.

“In addition to the two known victims in this case, I believe that there may be additional survivors of Fitzpatrick’s actions who continue to suffer in silence. I urge anyone who has been abused by Eugene Fitzpatrick to contact police without delay.

“Specially trained officers will support victims throughout the investigative process and there are a number of additional support pathways that we are able to signpost.”

Anyone who thinks they are a victim of Eugene Fitzpatrick can contact the Met’s Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command by dialling 101.

Alison Millar, abuse lawyer at Leigh Day, said:

“The offences of which Father Eugene has been convicted are horrific and represent the gravest breach of trust.  The survivors of this appalling abuse are to be commended for their courage in coming forward and giving evidence.

“This case shows that it is still possible to secure convictions many years after the offending took place and that investigation of non-recent child abuse offences should remain a police priority.

“We understand that The Islington Survivors’ Network (ISN), had information about a Father Eugene going back to the 1990s and have contacted the police about this.

“Clearly, this requires thorough investigation: were possible opportunities missed to prosecute Father Eugene sooner?

“We strongly support the call made by ISN for an independent police-led investigation working towards the prosecutions of those who perpetrated or facilitated institutional or organised child abuse in Islington and the surrounding area, and who have still not been brought to justice.”

‘Predatory’ paedophile priest jailed for 22 years

Father Eugene Fitzpatrick, 68, was sentenced to 22 years behind bars and placed on the sex offenders register for life after being found guilty of seven counts of indecent assault, four counts of indecency with a child, and two counts of buggery, all committed between the 1960s and 1990s.

Fitzpatrick, of Raymond Lane, Canterbury, was parish priest at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Harpenden from 1995 until 2001

Detectives are appealing for additional victims to come forward after Fitzpatrick was sentenced following a trial at Blackfriars Crown Court last month.

“In addition to the two known victims in this case, we believe that there may be additional survivors of Fitzpatrick’s actions who continue to suffer in silence. I urge anyone who has been abused by Eugene Fitzpatrick to contact police without delay.

The indecent assault and indecency offences were committed against one victim in the Islington area. The buggery offences were committed against a second victim at Our Lady St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Hackney.

My little list begins with three odious people who were friends and contemporaries at York University – Harvey Proctor, Michael Brown and Christine Holman, now Christine Hamilton. I don’t know what was going on at York at the time, but the York University Conservative Association spawned some deeply unpleasant people.

Harvey Proctor is legendary. He was Chair of the York University Conservative Association between 1967-69, then the Assistant Director (1969-71) and a member of the executive council (1983-87) of the hard right Monday Club. He was the Tory MP for Basildon (1979-83) and then for Billericay (1983-87). In the early 80s some mind-boggling rumours circulated about Harvey Proctor, rumours so florid that I didn’t believe them. He was alleged to be taking part in extreme S&M activities with under-aged boys. ‘Private Eye’ ran a few articles about him – he was featured in their ‘The New Boys’ column and I expected him to sue them. However he didn’t. Proctor became a source of fascination to the ‘Eye’ and sometime later they published allegations that a building that he owned was housing members of the League of St George (a far-right group) and then allegations that someone had been walking past his London flat, heard guttural noises coming from within and observed bloody handprints on the outside of the building. Interestingly, no-one from the Tories denied these stories, they just ignored them. The rumours continued to circulate and eventually some Tories started expressing the opinion that Proctor was a serious embarrassment and that they’d rather he stood down.

In 1986 ‘The People’ newspaper claimed that Proctor was in same sex relationships with males and then the shit really hit the fan – in 1987 Proctor was found guilty of gross indecency and fined after participating in spanking sessions in which young male prostitutes were tied up. The prostitutes involved were not ‘children’, but they were under the legal age of consent for gay sex between men, which at the time was 21. Proctor and others who were charged under similar circumstances now angrily point out that they were targeted for being gay and that the men that they were having sex with would these days be over the age of consent. I take their point about the relevant changes in the law – but whereas some of these men were charged for offences involving young men between the ages of 16 and 21, there were constant allegations that some of them had sometimes been sexually involved with boys under the age of 16. Furthermore these rent boys had frequently been trafficked into prostitution at the age of 16-17 after leaving children’s homes, where they had been ‘groomed’ by years of sexual abuse – often accompanied by violence if they resisted. This was certainly the pattern regarding the kids from north Wales children’s homes – and John Allen, the owner of the Bryn Alyn Community, was known to own brothels in London and Brighton where children formerly in his care were sent after they left the children’s homes. The boys pimped by Allen also alleged that he was involved with a major crime ring dealing in child porn and drugs. The defence used by Proctor et al never involves answering any difficult questions about where those rent boys had come from and why they were so willing to have sex with rather deranged sometimes elderly MPs whom they could not have found attractive in any way.

Proctor resigned his seat after his conviction and Theresa Gorman succeeded him. In 1988 Proctor established a shop in Richmond-Upon-Thames selling shirts, ties and waistcoats, after receiving a grant from the Gov’ts Enterprise Allowance Scheme. Proctor had considerable help establishing this business. The Tory Whip Tristan Garel-Jones organised the raising of the sum of £75,000 and over the following years, as Proctor’s shop repeatedly encountered financial difficulties, Tory MPs and former Tory MPs came to the rescue. Some of the people who were financially involved with Proctor’s business were Jeffrey Archer, Michael Heseltine, David Heathcote-Amory, Mark Lennox-Boyd, Sir Nicholas Bonsor, Richard Shephard, David Evans, Neil Hamilton, Christine Hamilton, Tim Yeo, Michael Brown, David Ashby, Sir Neil Thorne, William Benyon and Sir Charles Morrison. Charles Morrison was the older brother of Sir Peter Morrison whom it is now admitted was molesting boys in their mid-teens and younger, including boys resident in children’s homes in north Wales. Heseltine and Archer invested more than £100,000 in Proctor’s shop.

There was a punch-up in the shop in 1992. Two young men entered and asked Proctor ‘have you any ties for tying up rent boys before you spank them?’ Proctor tried to get them out of the shop and a fight broke out. Incredibly enough Neil and Christine Hamilton were in the shop at the time and Hamilton came to Proctor’s assistance when the young men assaulted Proctor. Proctor was punched in the face and had his little finger broken and Neil Hamilton ended up with a broken nose. The two men were charged and convicted.

In spite of the enormous helping hand that Proctor received from well-wishing Tories, his business eventually went bust. In 2003 Proctor was appointed the Private Secretary to the 11th Duke of Rutland at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire. He entered obscurity but of course hit the media again in 2015 when he was named as a suspect in the Operation Midland investigation into child abuse. Proctor held a press conference at which he angrily denied all allegations made against him – which included allegations that he had sexually tortured boys, attempted to castrate one of them and that a boy was murdered. The allegations against Proctor were tied up with allegations that Ted Heath abused boys – Proctor maintained that he hated Ted Heath so much that he wouldn’t have shared a cup of tea with him, let alone have attended an orgy in his company.

The Operation Midland investigation was halted after the publication of Sir Richard Henriques’ highly critical report into the way that the police had conducted the investigation. In Nov 2016 the Commissioner of the Met, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, apologised to Proctor. Proctor began legal action against the Metropolitan Police in Feb 2017. Sir Richard Henriques was the judge who dismissed the appeal of Jeremy Bamber in 2002. Jeremy Bamber is serving a life sentence for the murder of three members of his family – there has been mounting concern for years that his case is a serious miscarriage of justice. Bamber was convicted substantially as a result of the evidence given by a Top Doctor from St Andrew’s Hospital Northampton, an institution with a history of patient neglect and abuse – the Top Doctor seems to have been untruthful when giving evidence (see post ‘Family Annihilation’).

Although I too found it difficult to believe that Proctor would have done anything at all with Ted Health including sexually abusing boys, I note that one of the investors in Proctor’s business, Sir Charles Morrison, had been a big fan of Heath’s. Charles Morrison was the MP for Devizes (1964-92) and died in 2005. His obituary in the ‘Daily Telegraph’ makes interesting reading. It contrasts the political differences between Charles and his brother Peter – Charles being a ‘die hard Heathite rebel’ and Peter being an aide to Thatcher. The Morrisons’ had a sister – Dame Mary Morrison, who was Woman of the Bed Chamber to the Queen for over 50 years. Charles Morrison’s wife was related by marriage to Ian Fleming, who wrote an article entitled ‘To Westminster With Love’, the opening words being ‘Charles Morrison – Licensed To Kill’. Well somebody certainly was, witnesses to the activities of Peter Morrison and his associates were constantly found dead.

Michael Brown, one of Proctor’s friends at York, was a part time research assistant to Michael Marshall between 1975-76 and between 1976-79 worked for Nicholas Winterton MP. In 1979 Brown was elected as a Tory MP himself and remained as one until May 1994. Brown was a member of the Monday Club and the Eldon League. He was a founder member of the No Turning Back group, which included Peter Lilley, Neil Hamilton and Michael Portillo. Brown and Portillo were extremely good friends in the early 80s, so much so that they went on holidays together, along with someone else close to them, Derek Laud, who was Brown’s research assistant for a considerable period of time.

Brown was a supporter of the apartheid regime in South Africa and in Feb 1988 visited South Africa with Neil Hamilton – their trip was funded by the South African Authorities.

Brown was PPS to Douglas Hogg, between 1989-90 when Hogg was at the DTI and then between 1990-92 when Hogg was at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Between 1992-93 Brown was PPS to Patrick Mayhew, Secretary of State for N Ireland. Mayhew was a barrister, who when he was younger had acted as Counsel for the GMC – the GMC who famously allowed Dr Morris Fraser, a child psychiatrist who was a paedophile, to continue practising in the 70s. But then they allowed Dafydd to practice and he was facilitating a paedophile ring. In 1993 Brown became an assistant Gov’t Whip.

Brown was involved with the Cash for Questions scandal, along with Neil Hamilton, Sir Michael Grylls and Sir Peter Morrison. Brown accepted money to lobby on behalf of U.S. Tobacco without declaring it and also failed to declare an interest in the notoriously carcinogenic Skoal Bandits.

Michael Brown resigned as an MP in 1994 after the ‘News of the World’ published photos of him on holiday in Barbados with a gay man who was under the age of consent.

Brown was in the wilderness for a short while but bounced back in April 1998 after he submitted a piece for the ‘Independent’ which they accepted. The Indie then offered him a regular commission as a political sketch writer, starting in 1999. I mentioned in my post ‘Running The Country – And All That Jazz’ that after he left office, Ken Clarke joined the Board of the ‘Independent’. Helena Kennedy, another name which will be familiar to readers of this blog, was also on the Board at the time. Clarke left office in 1997 – he joined the ‘Independent’ at some point after that. Michael Brown then also picked up work for other papers. He is now a political journalist who makes regular appearances as a commentator and newspaper reviewer on British TV, especially BBC News 24 and Sky News.

I note that Brown’s troubles began at the time that Gordon Anglesea sued for libel after a number of media outlets named Anglesea as abusing boys in care in north Wales and just as the Jillings investigation into child abuse in north Wales was launched. His career recovered whilst the Waterhouse Inquiry was nearing it’s end, when Amanda Platell had her feet firmly under the table at Conservative Central Office as Press Officer (see post ‘Did Glenda Occupy A Key Role In Keeping It All Quiet?’) and after Sir Peter Morrison had been found safely dead at the bottom of the stairs at his home.

I have mentioned that Brown and Portillo were good friends with Derek Laud, Brown’s research assistant and they even all went on holidays together. Laud was also a member of the Monday Club in the early 1980s. By the mid 1980s he was working for Tory MPs and Gov’t advisors as a researcher and as a special advisor to Sir Gordon Downey, the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards. During the second half of the 80s Laud was an aide and speechwriter for Thatcher. He also helped Alan Clark and Michael Heseltine with their speeches. During the 1992 general election Laud acted as a campaign aide and fundraiser for John Major.

In the mid 80s Laud established Strategic Network International, a company set up to campaign against anti-apartheid movements and in the late 80s he worked in private equity finance. In 1992 he co-founded the lobbying company Ludgate Laud. Laud is co-founder and executive director of New City Initiative, a think tank and financial lobbying company. He holds multiple positions at the ‘wealth management’ company Stanhope Capital LLP. In recent years Laud has became a TV celeb – including an appearance on Celebrity Big Brother and in 2005 he partnered Edwina Currie on a TV quiz.

In the 1990s Laud was active in support of the Democratic Turnhalle Alliance (DTA), a political party in Namibia backed by the South African Gov’t.

Laud has a rather different background to many of the people in the Conservative Party with whom he is mates. He came from a Jamaican family in south London but had a very big rift with his mother when he was fourteen, which he attributes to him being gay, but he never quite explained how exactly. He moved out of his mother’s house and had no contact with her for many years – he moved in with Anna Meeham the head of the school that he attended in Clapham. Anna lived with her sister Cecily who was a child psychologist – Cecily was friends with a Judge Ann Goddard. Laud has remained very close to these two sisters, particularly Cecily. In an interview with the ‘Daily Mail’ in 2007 he stresses their importance in his life and says that he consults them about everything.

I mentioned in my post ‘Are You Local?’ that teenaged boys from Ty’r Felin, the children’s home in Bangor run by the brutal Nefyn Dodd, were being trafficked into prostitution. They were hired out to men renting hotel rooms in the local area but they were also taken to London, where they were received by a Tory fundraiser and aide of Thatcher’s who had an apartment in Dolphin Square. I received an e mail from a journalist some weeks ago alleging that the man in question was Derek Laud.

Michael Portillo, a close friend of Laud and Brown’s, graduated from Cambridge in 1975 and in 1976 joined the Conservative Research Dept. He became a Gov’t advisor in 1979 and was elected to the Commons in 1984. He was given a seat in the Cabinet in 1992, as Chief Secretary to the Treasury. He was Secretary of State for Employment (1994-95) and Secretary of State for Defence (1995-97). Throughout this time he was known as the ‘darling of the right’ and in his early days as an MP many had seen him as the heir to Thatcher. He lost his seat unexpectedly in the 1997 general election. He returned to the Commons in 1999, after being elected for Kensington and Chelsea, Alan Clark’s seat, after Clark died. He became Shadow Chancellor. Portillo retired from the Commons in 2005 and is now largely known for his media work and is a regular on the BBC.

The right wing of the Tory Party eventually developed a problem with Portillo in the aftermath of him fessing up in 1998 that he had ‘had some homosexual experiences’ when he was a young man. As it became clear that Portillo’s homosexual experiences might have been rather more extensive than he’d let on, people like Norman Tebbit became very angry and accused him of deceiving them. Which I think he probably did – he married a woman in 1982, voted against gay equality legislation and denied the rumours circulating that he was gay. I knew someone in north Wales back in the 1990s who used to go to gay clubs in London and Manchester who told me that he’d seen Portillo in gay clubs. Many years ago Michael Gove alleged in one of his books that there was quite an interesting party scene in Portillo’s Cambridge College – Peterhouse – whilst Portillo was there, including cross-dressing parties at which men were given girls names which were attended by both undergrads and Fellows of the College. There were a number of allegations circulating about Portillo, including that he was one of the Tories who was having sex with under-aged boys. I have no idea whether he was or not – but I think that he certainly knew people who were. He has known one person since he was a teenager who definitely did keep quiet about paedophile activity in children’s homes – Diane Abbott, the former Press and PR Officer for Lambeth Borough Council, whose own children’s homes were rife with a paedophile activity and who also sent children in care to John Allen’s Bryn Alyn Community in north Wales.

Another Tory who was the subject of allegations that he was gay was the man with the little list, Peter Lilley. Lilley felt obliged to issue a denial in the end and he stated that he found the idea of homosexuality about as appetising as eating cardboard. Lilley had been at Cambridge with Ken Clarke, Michael Howard, John Selwyn Gummer and Norman Lamont. Lilley was a member of the No Turning Back group along with Portillo, Hamilton and Michael Brown. He was the Chair of the Bow Group, 1973-75. He was elected as a Tory MP in 1987 and retired in 2017. He was PPS to Nigel Lawson, Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (July 1990-April 1992) and Secretary of State for Social Security (April 1992-May 1997). Lilley was always right behind Margaret Thatcher, but when he realised that she was going to lose the leadership contest in 1990 he very quickly changed his allegiances and supported John Major.

The toxic Child Support Agency was one of Lilley’s initiatives, although whether he was responsible for appointing as head of the CSA the equally toxic Ros Hepplewhite – formerly Chief Exec of MIND whilst that organisation concealed horrors in north Wales perpetrated by the paedophiles’ friends – I do not know. In 1977 Lilley co-authored a book with Samuel Brittan, brother of the dreadful Leon, who has been named as a child abuser. Leon’s family and friends have robustly denied the allegations, but what is certain is that Leon lost a dossier given to him by Geoffrey Dickens MP whilst Leon was Home Secretary – the dossier contained names and details of Westminster figures whom were alleged to be abusing children. Many other files relating to child abuse also went walkabout from the Home Office whilst Leon was there. Please see post ‘A Few Of The Relevant Politicians In The Mary Wynch Case’ for an account of the hissy fit that Samuel Brittan threw in the mid 80s when the box office at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival failed to pull strings for him and how dear old Michael Grade promised to help him out.

Lilley’s father was personnel officer at the BBC. R.D. Laing once commented when observing his son growing up that he felt himself rocked by successive generations. I’ve experienced a similar sensation when researching for this blog.

Proctor and Michael Brown’s friend from York, Christine Holman, eventually married Neil Hamilton. Christine had worked as secretary for Tory MP Sir Michael Grylls (father of Bear). Years later, Grylls ended up in a lot of trouble in the Cash for Questions scandal, along with Hamilton, Brown and Peter Morrison. Grylls was a Tory MP for 27 years who stood down in 1997. In 1990 he took cash payments and misled the select committee on members interests.

The most notorious MP involved in the Cash for Questions saga was of course Christine Hamilton’s husband Neil. Neil Hamilton has been involved in such extensive scandal and wrongdoing that I cannot detail it all here, so I’ll just provide a few highlights.

Neil Hamilton grew up in Carmarthenshire – his father was a manager for the National Coal Board. Hamilton eventually became a barrister specialising in taxation. He went to Aberystwyth University, that institution which trained so many of the corrupt lawyers named on this blog, although Hamilton didn’t read law there. After Aber, he went to Cambridge and then embarked on a legal career. There are a lot of people in Wales who remember Hamilton from his time at Aber and there are some interesting stories circulating. He was a member of the Federation of Conservative Students at Aber between 1968-74. He was elected for the Conservatives in Tatton in 1983 and held the seat until 1997, when he was beaten by the journalist Martin Bell who stood on an anti-sleaze ticket. Hamilton was a member of the No Turning Back group and his network included Alun Duncan and Gerald Howarth. He was also a member of the Eldon League.

In June 1984 Hamilton was the subject of a BBC Panorama programme, ‘Maggie’s Militant Tendency’, which detailed some seriously bad behaviour and worrying connections on the part of Neil Hamilton. In Oct 1986 Hamilton and Gerald Howarth sued the BBC for libel. The prosecution was funded by James Goldsmith and Taki, the Spectator journalist. David Davis was at the time a Director for Tate and Lyle and persuaded them to donate to Hamilton’s fighting fund. Hamilton stated that his main character witness would be Norman St John Stevas. I mentioned in my post ‘It’s The Sun Wot Won It’ that when I worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School between 1989-91, a member of staff there was a young man well-acquainted with the London gay scene who told me that Norman St John Stevas was known to holding ‘spanking parties with little boys’ and that ‘no-one knows how he’s getting away with it’. I was told this before the many allegations of politicians molesting children appeared in the media on a regular basis.

In October 1986 the BBC caved in to Hamilton suddenly and unexpectedly. A representative of the National Young Conservatives hinted at a stitch-up and the Director General of the BBC Alisdair Milne maintained that he had acted under the instruction of the BBC Governors, who had ordered the Board of Management to settle case before the defence interrogated Hamilton. The BBC paid the legal costs of Hamilton and Howarth and issued an apology. Attention focussed on the actions of Malcolm McAlpine, the cousin of Alistair McAlpine, the Conservative Party treasurer. Malcom McAlpine denied promising Hamilton that he could ‘deliver’ the Governors behind a settlement.

Alistair McAlpine became headline news in 2012, when he was named on ‘Newsnight’ by Steve Messham as being one of the men who had sexually abused him whilst Messham was in Bryn Estyn. McAlpine denied it and successfully sued a number of people who repeated the allegation. The McAlpine family do have a connection to north Wales though – the mother of Owen Lloyd George (THE Lloyd George’s grandson) was a McAlpine. Two descendants of Lloyd George, Annwen Carey Evans and D.B. Carey Evans, signed the ‘memorandum’ presented to Parliament in 2008 – the memorandum that was initiated and largely signed by the paedophiles’ friends (see post ‘A Vampire At Glyndwr University!’) and designed to put a stop to Edwina Hart’s efforts as she confronted the corruption of the paedophiles’ friends in the north Wales NHS.

Hamilton’s action against the BBC involved some very worrying happenings and there were allegations of witness intimidation – a BBC internal memo to the Board of Management claimed that 17 witnesses were intimidated into changing their testimony. Conservative Central Office were accused of orchestrating a cover-up. Dale Campbell-Savours MP maintained that he had evidence in the form of a letter and a tape that demonstrated BBC nobbling. Campbell-Savours sent a copy of the tape to Michael Havers, the Attorney General and accused Conservative Central Office of interfering with potential witnesses.

In Dec 1986 Hamilton became PPS to Sir David Mitchell. Mitchell was a Hampshire MP between 1964-97 and was a Minister in Thatcher’s Gov’t. His is the father of Andrew Mitchell, who was Chief Whip in Cameron’s Gov’t between 2010-12 and at the centre of Plebgate. Andrew Mitchell’s wife is a Top Doctor.

Hamilton became a Whip in 1990. In June 1990 he was recruited by Derek Laud to work for Strategy Group International for which Hamilton received a fee from Michael Brown.

Hamilton was a keen supporter of Thatcher and after Heseltine’s leadership challenge in Nov 1990 was quoted as saying ‘I fed all my intelligence into her campaign’. My post ‘It’s The Sun Wot Won It’ mentions the degree of socialising that the Hamiltons were doing with Sir Peter Morrison – whose constituency was next to Hamilton’s – at a time when Morrison’s abuse of under-aged boys was openly talked about at social events involving the City of Chester Conservative Association. Between 1992-94 Hamilton was a Minister in Major’s Govt.

During the Cash for Questions scandal it was revealed that Hamilton did not register his consultancy fee from Strategy Network International, that he enjoyed free hospitality at the Ritz Hotel in Paris – owned by al Fayed – had stayed at al Fayed’s castle in Scotland without declaring it and that he had received many thousands of pounds from al Fayed which was handed over in the now infamous brown envelopes.

In the wake of the allegations that flew during Cash for Questions, in Jan 1998 Hamilton launched a libel action against al Fayed. Lord Harris of High Cross raised £100k to help fund the case and many other Tories also donated, including Lord Tim Bell and Simon Heffer. Over £400k was raised. Lord Harris had founded the No Turning Back group in 1985 and had a long association with the economists and think tanks which had exerted such influence on the economic policies of Thatcher’s administrations. He was the founding President of the Institute for Economic Affairs from 1990 until his death in 2006, proposed the idea of an ‘independent’ university and then became a Council member of Buckingham University (1980-85), famously the UK’s first private university. In 2003 Harris was also the Chairman and President of FOREST, the pro-smoking charity which was largely funded by the tobacco industry. Between 2008-2001 Harris was a Director of the Murdoch-owned Times Newspapers. Harris also wrote for the ‘Telegraph’.

Hamilton lost his libel action in Dec 1999 and subsequently filed for bankruptcy.

Following their disgrace and a memorable ‘Guardian’ headline confirming that Neil Hamilton was a liar and a cheat, the Hamiltons reinvented themselves as celebs. The BBC welcomed them with open arms and they appeared regularly on various TV shows, including ‘Have I Got News For You’. Their celebrity status had a downside. In 2001 they were accused of rape and sexual assault by a young woman who it later transpired was quite troubled and enjoyed a rich fantasy life. Her allegations against the Hamiltons were found to be demonstrably untrue – although the Hamiltons were arrested and questioned. The young woman subsequently went to prison, which was probably not the best place for her. However, the identity of the Hamilton’s alibi is noteworthy – it was Derek Laud, who maintained that the Hamiltons were having dinner with him at the time that they were alleged to have assaulted the young woman.

Cash for Questions was one of the key factors that did for John Major’s Gov’t. Another Tory MP who faced allegations of sleaze was Tim Smith who was elected in 1982 and stood down in 1997 after allegations that he received bribes. Smith was known to have accepted cash payments from al Fayed. Tim Smith worked for Leon Brittan in the Home Office 1983-85 and was a N Ireland Minister between Jan and Oct 1994.

What is overwhelming obvious here – particularly when considered alongside the information in my previous posts – is what a cradle of filth this was. There were a number of politicians close to Margaret Thatcher at the heart of Gov’t who were utterly unscrupulous and using any means available to them, including the gross abuse of their positions, to line their own pockets. There were some politicians who were known to be abusing young boys and rather more who were using the services of rent boys slightly under the then age of consent without asking any questions at all concerning where those rent boys were coming from. The networks and links – even just the ones that I have detailed on this blog – mean that these activities must have been widely known about in Westminster, as must have been some of the means being used to silence witnesses.

It is striking how many of the people named on this blog as having been involved in child abuse or in keeping it quiet also had careers in the media. Even the Hamiltons who had been utterly disgraced – and that was before the child molesting activities of their mate Peter Morrison became public knowledge – were invited to appear on prime time light entertainment BBC programmes, as though they were simply an entertaining colourful couple rather than a pair of lying, cheating crooks who intimidated anyone who dared take them on. But then there was effectively a deal done between Thatcher’s Gov’t and parts of the media. The BBC was notoriously craven – because it was usually presumed they were terrified of the Gov’t stopping the funding of the BBC via the licence fee. But the BBC was of course also employing and concealing the activities of Savile – who was literally a mate of Thatcher’s. Everybody was doing so much that they shouldn’t have been that no-one dared grass anybody else up. As for the newspapers – well Murdoch and Thatcher had a very obvious deal which I was reminded of when listening to the Radio 4 programme ‘The Reunion’ this morning. They were reminiscing about the Wapping dispute, the means by which Murdoch broke the print unions. The print unions enjoyed the support of many on the left but I don’t think that they should have – their practices were dreadful and involved actively excluding women and ethnic minorities from jobs, as well as large scale fiddling. They were of course happy to keep printing ‘The Sun’ all the way through the Falklands campaign even when it published photos of ‘injured Argies’ and a fictitious interview with a war widow which helped Thatcher to win another election. The print unions only started squealing when Murdoch went after them. He used the anti-union laws that the Thatcher Gov’t had passed to do this – the union was broken when the Courts sequestered their assets. Under Murdoch’s ownership the Times newspapers undoubtedly changed in character with the installation of people like Andrew Neil as editors – all Murdoch’s publications became uncritical defenders of everything that the Conservative Gov’t did. They were never going to publish stories about Thatcher’s aides abusing children and participating in substantial financial corruption, particularly when some of the political figures connected to child abuse were involved with bank-rolling the Conservative Party.

I have mentioned many times in previous posts how the Labour Party stood by impotent – they couldn’t blow the whistle, because so many of their MPs had been Councillors on the London boroughs overseeing the ‘services’ in which the children were sexually abused and then trafficked – to be sexually used by some of the very people whom the Councillors loathed and dearly wanted to see out of office. I have mentioned that some people who later made it big in New Labour actually worked as social workers themselves in those Councils, such as Tessa Jowell and Janet Boateng. This blog has also named a number of ‘radical lawyers’ with connections to the Labour Party who undoubtedly knew what was happening to those kids and the further abuse of them at the hands of the mental health services if they dared complain – lawyers who did not say a word, or even some, such as Patricia Scotland, who actually acted for the state in public inquiries which were no more than massive cover-ups of the abuse of children by public figures. The role of Margaret Hodge as leader of Islington Council whilst the children’s homes were infested with paedophiles has received substantial publicity, but there is one former lawyer who hit the big time with New Labour who is still skilfully hiding away, although her biography suggests that she bloody well knew about all this as well – I am talking about that well-known victim of oppression, Harriet!

Harriet Harman was interviewed by Peter Hennessey on Radio 4 earlier this week and I steeled myself to listen to the whole interview, because I have always suspected that Harriet, daughter of a Harley Street Top Doctor herself and an eternal whinger – referencing very simplistic notions of gender inequality but showing a complete ignorance of class inequality – knew a lot more about institutionalised child abuse than she ever let on. Harriet was famously outed a few years ago as having been involved with the NCCL – along with many of her New Labour mates – whilst NCCL was affiliated with PIE, a group lobbying for paedophiles’ rights. Harriet got very angry indeed and claimed that she was the subject of a smear campaign – and then someone produced a document written for the NCCL by a Harriet Harman in her capacity as their legal officer, which certainly read as though it was arguing for paedophiles rights. See posts ‘The London Connection’ and ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell’ for the idiocies of the NCCL and their officers who later became senior figures in New Labour.

I have always accepted that Harriet really is not very bright at all and I could well imagine a young, over-privileged stupid Harriet deciding that she was going to change the world by telling it what to do, only to find herself being used by a bunch of paedophiles’ friends who probably couldn’t believe their luck at stumbling across such a dimwit. I was right! Throughout her interview with Hennessey, Harriet stressed how she wasn’t going to listen to the old fuddy duddies in her family like Lord Longford – she obviously doesn’t understand that she only ended up at the top of the Labour Party because she came from that immensely privileged and well-connected family, it certainly wasn’t through ability – she and her friends were going to change everything and she was delighted to maintain that they did. Some of them even worked whilst they were pregnant, which Harriet pointed out had never been done before – her own mother hadn’t. Harriet – that’s because your mother was Very Posh and could afford not to work. If you had ever read any social history at all, you would know that Poor People have for many generations worked whilst they were pregnant. Likewise, your memories of dressing up in your mother’s barrister’s wig and robes when you were little because she’d put them in your dressing up box was not so much a symbol of your mother’s oppression, it was a Signal to you from your mother of the sort of adult that you were expected to grow up to be. It worked – you are as thick as pig shit but you still became a lawyer and indeed even Solicitor General.

I did however learn a few more things about Harriet from that interview. That she was at York University when Proctor and his mates were there. She mentioned that she was ‘political’ but that the Conservative students at York were foul. Yes and some of them just a few years later did some very interesting things with rent boys and money. Harriet will not have forgotten that she was at York with Proctor et al when they hit the headlines some years later – but she couldn’t say a thing about their activities…

I also learnt that after her stint at NCCL, Harriet worked at Brent Law Centre (1978-82) at a time when the paedophile gangs that supplied the Westminster Paedophile Ring were in full swing. Brent Law Centre will have dealt with child care and mental health cases. In 1984, the complete fuckwittery of Brent Social Services resulted in the death of Jasmine Beckford (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’). Jasmine was starved and beaten to death by her stepfather – she had been in the care of Brent Social Services for two and a half years before she died. So Brent Social Services were ‘caring’ for Jasmine whilst Harriet worked down the road at the Law Centre leading the way for the nation’s wimmin and planning her future career in the Labour Party. Paul Boateng was also busy in the area at the time and was MP for Brent South (1987-2005). The Paul Boateng who worked in the legal firm that acted for Mary Wynch (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case -Details’) and who is married to Janet Boateng, a former social worker for Lambeth who Chaired the Social Services Committee at the time of the death of Tyra Henry in 1984 (see posts ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell’ and ‘A Few More Who Might Be Able To Answer Questions’). Ken Livingstone was busy in the area as well and served as MP for Brent East (1987-2001). The Ken who led the GLC when so many of the kids in it’s care were abused on Ken’s patch or exported to children’s homes in north Wales to be abused. Brent embraces part of Camden – Tessa’s old stomping ground. For details of the many links that those from the London boroughs had to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, see post ‘The London Connection’.

I think that Harriet definitely knew that there was a problem – and her silence meant that her and her mates were not able to ‘change everything’ at all. Harriet didn’t just keep quiet when she was a young woman with an eye on a Labour seat (she was subsequently elected for Peckham, one of the most disadvantaged parts of London. I very much doubt whether the Council there was caring for the kids properly). Harriet’s lips remained sealed when she was an Older Empowered Strong Woman. She was Solicitor General in 2001, shortly after the publication of the Waterhouse Report at the time of the allegations of a huge cover-up. Not a word. In 2005 she was Minister of State for the Dept of Constitutional Affairs and represented Charlie Falconer on the Commons frontbench – whilst Charlie concealed the heap of manure and ensured that anyone who had suffered at the hands of the paedophiles’ friends would have no legal redress by making it impossible to access Legal Aid. Charlie’s withdrawing of Legal Aid also very nearly put the two lawyers in north Wales who were doing a pretty good job of fighting the paedophiles’ friends out of business. Now that would have been a great relief for those we know and love.

When Harriet and her close friend Patricia Hewitt discovered that MI5 had kept files on them as a result of their involvement with NCCL they became very angry, took a case to the European Court of Human Rights and subsequently there was a change in the law. Well Harriet and Patsy were only working for an organisation that was lobbying on behalf of paedophiles whilst there was a problem with senior figures in Gov’t abusing children, children who were later found dead, with the alleged involvement of rogue members of the security services. Why ever would MI5 be keeping files on Harriet and Patsy?

Harriet remains good friends with Patsy to this day. Patsy was formerly the General Secretary of NCCL during it’s Paedophile Period and later became the MP for Leicester West, after Greville Janner stood down. The Greville Janner whom the CPS has admitted should have been prosecuted for abusing boys but wasn’t, for reasons that the CPS have never been able to explain. Keith Vaz – he of the male prostitutes and drugs – also became an MP in Leicester, after a stint working as the senior solicitor for Islington Council in the mid 80s as the paedophile ring operating in the Islington children’s homes ran riot and a further stint working as a solicitor in a Law Centre in Leicester which was funded by Leicester City Council between 1985-87 as the paedophile ring there did it’s best (see post ‘One Of The Safest Pairs Of Hands At The Criminal Bar’ for further details on Keith, his mum and his sister). The paedophile ring in operation in Leicestershire children’s homes had as it’s key figure the social worker Franck Beck who was later imprisoned. It is not only Labour politicians with dirty linen who are drawn to Leicestershire – Harvey Proctor ended up there as well.

During the Hennessey interview Harriet spoke a lot about her battles with the male creatures who clutter up Parliament and explained that the reason why she accepted a place on the front bench when offered one by Neil Kinnock was that Patsy had told her that she ‘had a responsibility’ to sit on the front bench or other wimmin would not believe that it was possible. Thank God we’ve got Harriet to show us the way.

The fuckwittedness of Patsy’s comment had clearly escaped Harriet – whilst Harriet was exercising her responsibilities as a Role Model
