Why DID the human rights luvvie, Ben Emmerson, quit?

 

Legal chambers founded by Cherie Blair that made millions exploiting Labour’s human rights laws is in crisis after being accused of trying to ‘cover up’ sexual harassment against star barrister

  • Benjamin Emmerson QC, a founder of the firm, is at the centre of controversy
  • Emmerson accused of groping female collegue at work and against her will 
  • Matrix Chambers and Emmerson have both strongly denied the accusations

One thing is certain: they are holier than thou at Matrix Chambers, the influential firm of superstar ‘human rights’ barristers which rarely misses an opportunity to trumpet its credentials as a bastion of high-minded political correctness.

Founded in 2000 by Cherie Blair and a ‘dream team’ of 21 mostly Left-wing colleagues, the firm grew rich and famous cashing-in on the explosion of highly lucrative litigation spawned by the Blair government’s controversial Human Rights Act.

‘Fearless, formidable, and always highly aggressive,’ its members proceeded to ‘shape the modern human rights industry’, in the words of an admiring QC, righting perceived wrongs, taking on authority, and seeking to advance the causes of equality and liberalism in some of the most important and contentious court cases of recent times.

Its now-95-strong cohort of brilliant (if occasionally pompous) lawyers occupy one of London’s great ivory towers: a Victorian former police station situated a short stroll from the Old Bailey and Royal Courts of Justice.

Here, no fewer than three Sirs, two lords and ten professors currently earn their shilling, including several members of the Left-wing establishment, from (Lord) Ken MacDonald, Director of Public Prosecutions during the Blair era, and (Sir) Paul Jenkins QC, who became the New Labour government’s most senior legal official in 2006.

Among the other ‘big beasts’ are Hugh Tomlinson QC, a friend of actor Hugh Grant and founder of the anti-Press lobby group Hacked Off, Lord Brennan QC, a Labour peer, and Philippe Sands QC, the Guardian contributor and high-profile campaigner against the Iraq War.

Working for Matrix is less a job, and more a noble calling — or so this lot would have you believe.

So it goes that, on the front page of its website, the firm trumpets its credentials as a forward-thinking institution that promotes ‘equality’ where ‘diversity and accessibility are widely championed and outdated practice is challenged’.

Among the ‘core values’ is a commitment to being ‘dedicated to the promotion and advancement of women’.

How unfortunate, therefore, and how humiliating, that this bastion of progressive metropolitan liberalism should be accused of cynically betraying those ‘core values’.

For Matrix Chambers was this week revealed to be in a state of virtual crisis over the flawed — and some might say deeply hypocritical — way it handled a high-profile and extremely serious claim of workplace sexual harassment that occurred on its own doorstep.

Amid the fallout, an array of senior female staff members have filed a written complaint alleging widespread sexual harassment by colleagues. It claims that inappropriate comments, innuendo, (and worse), are routinely directed at them by ‘senior men’ on its payroll. Official reports looking at the issue have talked of ‘institutional failings’.

In a surreal twist, another internal email leaked this week accused women who had publicly voiced concerns about sexual harassment of being ‘deeply unsisterly’ because they were damaging Matrix’s reputation.

Ludicrously, it compared them to complaining farm animals, saying: ‘Women must help empower other women, not lead them down the path bleating.’

At the centre of this ugly controversy is one of the firm’s founders and most high-profile members of staff: Benjamin Emmerson QC, a ‘goliath’ of his trade who’s been an eminent human rights lawyers for over two decades.

Famed for his advocacy in a string of headline-grabbing cases, representing people such as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and the widow of Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko, whose death by poisoning in London was blamed on Vladimir Putin, the ‘smart and charming’ Emmerson was once said to be the model for Bridget Jones’s dashing lawyer-lover, Mr Darcy.

His glamorous social set includes one-time colleague Amal Clooney and her husband, George.

The divorced father of four’s recent ex-girlfriends include Hollywood siren Ellen Barkin, who was once married to Irish actor Gabriel Byrne.

Last September, however, Emmerson abruptly resigned as lead counsel to the Government’s major child sex abuse inquiry, for which he was paid £1,700 a day from the taxpayer.

The departure was put down to unspecified concerns over his ‘leadership’. However it later emerged that the development had also followed an incident in which a female colleague claimed he’d groped her in a lift, during working hours and against her will, at the inquiry’s headquarters in London.

Emmerson vigorously denied the charge, as did Matrix, which subsequently said an inquiry into the incident by a senior judge had established that he ‘had not committed any act of sexual assault or sexual harassment’.

However, this week it emerged that this statement from a legal firm which is bastion of equality had been — at best — very misleading indeed.

For the inquiry had, in truth, ‘found as fact’ that Emmerson had attempted to either put his hand between his colleague’s legs or down her trousers, and that she had pushed him away.

It had described this conduct as ‘unwanted and of a sexual nature’, but concluded that Emmerson (who has always protested his innocence) was not guilty of either harassment or assault, partly because he honestly believed the women would consent.

Furthermore, it emerged this week that the woman had complained to Matrix that he was harassing her nine months before the lift incident. However, nothing was done.

We shall look at these events in detail later.

In the meantime, female staff — many of whom campaign for women to speak out about workplace harassment — were further galled to receive an email from Matrix management instructing them not to talk about the harassment case, saying ‘discussions of this sort may well prove highly corrosive’.

Though the law firm boasts about having fought honourable court battles over free speech and Press freedom, it decided in the message (which was leaked) to tell Chambers staff they were required to ‘respect the confidentiality’ of Emmerson by giving ‘a no comment response’ to journalists who might ask them about the case.

‘We also ask that you let us know [of any media inquiries], so that we may properly and effectively manage the situation and our organisation, in the interests of all,’ it read. To many, this added to the suspicion of a cover-up.

‘It’s impossible to underestimate how angry people are,’ says a source close to the firm. ‘What went on is outrageous. There has been no accountability, and no apology, and no heads have rolled.

‘This is the workplace of some of the most eminent equality lawyers in the world, but when a powerful man at the top of the organisation is accused of serious misconduct by a younger woman, its policies and procedures are in the Dark Ages.’

Several female barristers at the firm are understood to now be helping launch a campaign called Behind The Gown, which says sexual harassment ‘is endemic in our profession’, and plans to use social media to share examples.

Not surprisingly, this saga has been greeted with glee in legal circles, where rival lawyers have long regarded Matrix as too smug for its own good. ‘To say there is a degree of schadenfreude is an understatement,’ is how one human rights QC puts it.

‘Here we have the most preachy, right-on, pompous law firm, which has made small fortunes from discrimination lawsuits, failing to protect female employees in the most egregious way. The hypocrisy is extraordinary.’

To understand such anger, it is important to explain circumstances surrounding the formation of Matrix in 2000, when Cherie Blair and 21 colleagues founded the chambers as a potentially lucrative seam of new cases were expected after the Human Rights Act brought in by the government of her PM husband.

Despite, or perhaps because it was launched with a glamorous party attended by then-PM Tony, the legal media gave Matrix a lukewarm reception.

‘They have already been dubbed “the complaining chambers”,’ wrote one title. ‘They are all the whingers about civil liberties and much of their work will be from complainants.’

Other reports called it a ‘champagne socialist chambers’, ‘Mammon chambers’ or ‘whingers’ set’. The Spectator magazine went further, saying they were ‘leather jacket-wearing thought police’.

Yet for all the sniping, Matrix was hugely successful. It expanded rapidly and took on many high-profile briefs, perhaps most famously that of a Luton schoolgirl who claimed her human rights were violated when her headmistress banned her from wearing a head-to-toe jilbab.

Represented by Mrs Blair, the girl lost her case at the High Court but the verdict was overturned by the Court of Appeal — only to then see the House of Lords rule in favour of her school.

By then, such cases (many publicly-funded) had turned Matrix into one of the UK’s most well-remunerated chambers.

In 2006, its members were revealed to have appeared in 35 House of Lords hearings in the previous 12 months, more than double the number of any other firm. Average annual earnings for all Matrix barristers were then £225,000, though senior QCs were taking home more.

Cherie Blair was one of the higher earners, though her reputation was damaged by her husband’s government’s Iraq War, which was bitterly opposed by colleagues.

She left in 2014 to set up Omnia, an international law firm which has — how sweet the irony! — built lucrative connections with a number of foreign despots.

Matrix sailed on. Yet behind the scenes there were ugly rumours that the workplace conduct of some staff failed to live up to the high ideals of the organisation.

There were whispers (never confirmed) that one man had turned up to an office party accompanied by a prostitute. Another reputedly received an informal ban on working alone with juniors. Secretaries and receptionists are said to have been occasionally propositioned.

Then, last year, came the Emmerson case.

Details first emerged in January 2016 when a female Matrix worker, known in subsequent reports as ‘Ms A’, complained to the then chief executive, Lindsay Scott, that Emmerson had subjected her to sexual harassment.

She is understood to have asked for the matter to be dealt with informally. However, nine months later, matters escalated when an ‘unwanted’ incident ‘of a sexual nature’ took place in a lift at the headquarters of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, where Emmerson and the woman were working.

On September 28, the inquiry suspended Emmerson, expressing concern at ‘aspects of his leadership of the counsel team’.

The following day, he resigned, though continued to be paid his £1,700-a-day fee during a ‘handover’ that lasted several weeks. Then, in October, details of the alleged lift incident were revealed for the first time during an investigation by BBC2’s Newsnight.

Cherie Blair, with whom Emmerson helped establish the influential chambers

Matrix responded by ordering a secret inquiry. Its management committee hired David Calvert-Smith, a retired former Director of Public Prosecutions, to carry it out.

Calvert-Smith had no obvious specialist expertise in the field of workplace abuse or sexual harassment, and was not given details of Ms A’s previous complaints.

Perhaps more importantly, given the need for transparency, his report was never published, even in a redacted version, and was not shown to Matrix staff outside the management committee.

When that committee publicly announced that Emmerson had been cleared ‘without hesitation’, there was outrage.

‘A number of Matrix barristers, male and female, knew some details of the case, and took the view that the statement was at best misleading and at worst downright dishonest,’ says a source.

‘Since they knew the woman concerned, they also believed that Matrix was failing to properly deal with harassment claims.’

As a result, several female barristers wrote to the management committee calling for a review, saying: ‘We need to know that if something happened that required us to make a complaint, Matrix is equipped to handle it.’

Stung by the criticism, a sub-committee of senior Matrix lawyers commissioned a second inquiry into the handling of the abuse claims.

This was carried out by Dame Laura Cox, a prominent expert on harassment and equality law. Published in July, and leaked in part this week, its conclusions are damning.

Dame Laura concluded the chambers made a series of egregious errors, including failing to protect Ms A’s well-being and ignoring her initial complaint, and said the actions of senior management were ‘wholly inappropriate’.

She was also hugely critical of the firm’s original public statement exonerating Emmerson.

Adding that institutional failings had caused Ms A severe anxiety and distress, Dame Laura said the terms of reference of Sir David’s inquiry were too narrow, and was highly critical of the decision to appoint him in the first place.

She concluded that he’d been partly hired on the grounds that he ‘would be charging considerably less’ than any other candidate.

She also pointed out that Matrix management took few steps to ensure he had ‘expertise and experience in cases involving sexual harassment or in conducting sexual harassment investigations which require a particular sensitivity, understanding and approach’.

Regarding allegations of sexual harassment in the lift, she noted that Sir David ‘found as a fact’ that Ms A ‘had pushed Ben [Emmerson] away when he tried to put his hand between her legs / down her trousers. The conduct was, on his own findings, unwanted and of a sexual nature’.

Although Sir David decided this did not constitute harassment. Dame Laura said this took the wrong legal approach by failing to consider the Equality Act’s protections for people in the workplace.

‘The management committee’s decision immediately to accept this report was therefore an error,’ she wrote. ‘I consider that they ought to have realised that [Sir David] applied the wrong test and should have invited him to reconsider.’ Dame Laura’s report was filed in July. Since then, from Matrix, there has been silence on the matter.

‘This report highlights serious, institutional failings at an organisation which is supposed to be dedicated to equality,’ says a source close to the Chambers

‘The management contains some of the most eminent equality lawyers in the country. They have failed abjectly. Yet no heads have rolled and no apologies have been made.’

Emmerson has not commented on recent developments. However, he is understood to deny being guilty of any misconduct, and supporters point out that the Cox report focused on procedure and did not include any examination of first-hand evidence, meaning its author was not in a position to pass judgement over whether there had been harassment.

They add that he was never formally accused by the woman of assault.

Matrix, for its part, is saying nothing. This week, a spokesman declared it ‘does not intend to make any public comment on what are plainly confidential internal matters’.

Perhaps its PR team have other priorities: not long ago, they circulated a press release stating that the British Legal Awards — the industry’s ‘Oscars’ — had decided to short-list them as Chambers of the Year. Apparently, theirs is an industry in which abject hypocrisy pays.

However, the report has never been published and female barristers raised concerns about the way it was handled.

Inquiry Updates:

 

BBC News – Child sex abuse inquiry breaches victim’s anonymity

9 November 2017

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has admitted breaching its own procedures by publishing a victim’s name despite his right to anonymity.

The man’s name appeared on its website in the title of a document. The inquiry said it removed the name as soon as it was brought to its attention.

It was the seventh time the inquiry had been alerted to such a breach.

It notified the privacy watchdog – the Information Commissioner – and said it was reviewing its practices.

The inquiry, which was set up in the aftermath of the Jimmy Savile scandal, aims to investigate claims against local authorities, religious organisations, the armed forces and public and private institutions – as well as people in the public eye.

Thursday’s breach was spotted by a BBC journalist who alerted the inquiry to the fact that it had named a man who was applying for so-called “core participation” status at the inquiry.

The name was given in the title of a document, published for about a day, but had redacted that information elsewhere.

The inquiry said: “We understand that the document was viewed five times during that period.

“It was removed as soon as it was brought to our attention and the individual is being contacted and will be offered support.”

‘Totally unacceptable’

Since the inquiry began in March 2015, it has been alerted to seven breaches of anonymity and on four occasions, including this one, it reported itself to the Information Commissioner.

There are 1,150 people taking part in the inquiry who have had their identities hidden through the use of code numbers – this includes 200 core participants who have the right to take part directly in inquiry hearings.

The names of another 575 people are also protected because they are alleged perpetrators in cases where there has been no conviction or findings suggesting their guilt.

Richard Scorer, specialist abuse lawyer at Slater & Gordon solicitors who acts for many core participants at the inquiry, said: “This breach is totally unacceptable and it is extremely worrying that such a serious breach could occur.

“Such a breach would constitute contempt of court under the inquiry’s own rules.

“They need to review their procedures very urgently and ensure there is absolutely no repetition.”

Human rights lawyers chambers co-founded by Cherie Blair ‘is in crisis’ over new secret review into sex assault claims

  • QC who was lead counsel in abuse inquiry was cleared over sex assault claims
  • But a new review is critical of how the inquiry into the claims was handled
  • The chambers at the centre of the allegations has told members not to comment 

A top law-firm co-founded by Cherie Blair is said to have silenced its own members over a report into alleged sexual harassment.

Matrix Chambers, which was founded by the former Prime Minister’s wife in 2000, was at the centre of a storm last year over claims barrister Ben Emmerson QC sexually assaulted a woman in a lift.

He was cleared of any wrongdoing by a subsequent review by a retired judge, but a secret new report into that review is said to be critical of the way it was handled

The allegations centred on Mr Emmerson, who had been the lead counsel in the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).

His quit his role on the inquiry after claims were made on BBC Newsnight about the alleged sexual assault.

Matrix Chambers then brought in Sir David Calvert-Smith, a respected senior judge, to look into the claims, over which no formal complaint was ever made.

The £1,700-a-day lawyer quit last September shortly after being suspended over concerns about his ‘leadership’, only to be cleared three months later of any wrongdoing.

Last year a Commons committee said the inquiry’s handling of the sexual assault and bullying allegations on its premises had been ‘wholly inadequate’.

It was accused of a cover up after lawyers who resigned from the probe said they were blocked from speaking out.

The Times reported today that a separate review commissioned by the chambers was critical of legal approach of the previous investigation and some of the findings.

However, the report is not being made public and members of the chambers are being told not to comment on it to the press, the newspaper reported.

The secret report will add to concerns over a perceived lack of transparency surrounding the investigations and any impact it may have had on the public inquiry.

Labour MP Lisa Nandy said: ‘It’s high time we saw some transparency and clarity from Matrix and the IICSA about these serious allegations.

‘It raises critical questions about how an inquiry set up to shine a spotlight on abuse failed fully to investigate allegations of misconduct within its own organisation.’

Matrix has been contacted for comment.

Mrs Blair left the chambers in 2014.

Media chief quits child abuse inquiry

Bron Madson said she had left the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse for “personal reasons”

A senior official has quit the public inquiry into child abuse amid reports of tensions over a consultancy firm that has been paid nearly £300,000.

Bron Madson left her role as head of communications at the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) last week. The inquiry revealed that it has paid the consultancy firm Crest Advisory £294,232 since 2015 for “strategic communications advice”.

Ms Madson is the latest high-level departure from the IICSA, which is scheduled to hold its first public evidence session this month. She and her team are said to have been frustrated by the reluctance of senior officials and members of the panel to engage with the media at a time when the future running of the Inquiry…

Michael Mansfield, QC who on Radio 4’s morning programme today argued that Polanski should be treated “compassionately” and because his crime wasn’t as bad as genocide in Guinea and Darfur it shouldn’t be prosecuted.

In March 1977, film director Roman Polanski was arrested and charged in Los Angeles with five offenses against Samantha Gailey a 13-year-old girl[1] – rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance to a minor.[2


Roman Polanski ‘should not receive special treatment in child sex case’, judge hears

Roman Polanski 'should not receive special treatment in child sex case', judge hears
Prosecutors have called for the Oscar-winning director to return to the US to be sentenced.
20 March, 2017

Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski should return to the US to be sentenced for child sexual abuse and not receive special treatment as a “wealthy celebrity”, prosecutors have said.

A judge in Los Angeles is considering whether the long-running case involving the French-Polish film-maker – who has spent nearly 40 years on the run – should be drawn to a close.

Polanski, now 83, pleaded guilty to having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl at actor Jack Nicholson’s house but fled the US on the eve of sentencing in 1978.

Lawyers for the director say he is willing to return to America from France if he is assured he will not serve more jail time.

But prosecutor Michele Hanisee told a court hearing on Monday that Polanski was asking for “special treatment” and for the court to “completely abandon legal principles”.

“The People simply do not believe it is in the best interests of justice to give a wealthy celebrity – and that’s what Mr Polanski is – different treatment than any other fugitive from justice,” she said.

“If Mr Polanski returns, the People are confident he will get a fair hearing here in this court.”

Polanski’s lawyer Harland Braun said his client’s crime was “indefensible” but he fled at the time because he was “lied to” by the court about the sentence he would receive.

“This is a very unique case,” Mr Braun said.

“He is an 83-year-old man with a 40-year-old case that he wants to wrap up.”

Mr Braun told the court that the sentence at the time of Polanski’s offence was a maximum of two years in prison with 50% credit – meaning he would have spent 12 months in custody “at most”.

Polanski had already served 10-and-a-half months in custody in the US and Switzerland, he added.

Polanski fled the US after spending 42 days in an American jail when he feared a now-deceased judge would extend his sentence.

“He knows what he was promised,” Mr Braun said.

“We know he has served eight times what he was promised.”

The lawyer told the court the victim in the case said she wants “this thing over with”. He also called for a warrant issued for Polanski’s arrest to be dropped.

After hearing arguments from both lawyers, Judge Scott Gordon said he would issue a written ruling at a later date.

In Sharon Tate: A Life, author Ed Sanders writes that the Valley of the Dolls star’s husband was a dominating force in her life, urging her to fulfill his sexual fantasies by taking drugs and participating in affairs, orgies and home sex videos that he would later play for his friends at parties. The homemade sex tapes included “sadomasochistic-porno movies” that featured “quite a few recognizable Hollywood faces,” the author writes.

“Sharon told me about Roman – about imposed sexual scenes on her,” her friend, photographer Shahrokh Hatami, tells the author. “He was bringing other girls to have threesomes with Sharon, and Sharon didn’t like it that he was picking up girls on the Sunset and bringing them home to have sex with them.”

Polanski was nine years her senior.

The director allegedly refused to sleep with Tate after she became pregnant with his baby in 1968, and urged her to get an abortion. When she protested, he left the U.S. for London and had an affair with Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, Sanders writes.

The summer after she became pregnant, Polanski “treated her like she was a piece of excess baggage,” writes Sanders. “He was even pointedly cruel to her in front of others at times, calling her ‘a dumb hag’ and criticizing her whenever she expressed an opinion.”

The couple’s baby would never be born. Tate was just two weeks from giving birth when she and four others were savagely killed by members of the Manson Family at her and Polanski’s L.A. home in August 1969.

  • In an earlier version of this article, we alleged that Ms Greenway had recorded an interview with Freddie Starr, and posted online a picture of herself with Stuart Hall. In fact, Ms Greenway has not met either man and is not associated with them.

Anna C Events

mansfield-yvette-stuart-hall
Rather curious and specific mistakes to make??

Yvette Greenway, is certainly a woman of many hidden talents.

She has posted a poem, The Cup Of Comfort, on The Silence Of Suicide Facebook forum set up in honour of Mansfield’s daughter Anna, who died last May

The QC,  got into hot water when he was reportedly arrested, then released without charge after a night in the cells, following an alleged assault at a hot-tub party.

Greenway, 51, a divorced mother of two who runs an online video and events business called Anna Christian Productions Ltd, is thought to have been caught up in the incident.


Michael Mansfield’s  daughter committed suicide :

“It was clear that she felt that it was her fault, to some extent, that she had betrayed the company she worked for.

“She thought that she had given away some information about the reconfiguration of the company that she understood was going to lead to the loss of her job.”

Then she said she had resigned, which was confusing in the face of a supposed redundancy. A few days later Mansfield phoned again: “She thought she was being watched, listened to and, therefore, what had happened was getting back to the company,” he says.

He arranged to meet Anna that Sunday and when he called to check the arrangements she replied briskly, “Yes, Dad, yes, Dad – I’ll see you on Sunday. I’m fine.’’ Then she put the phone down.

She worked in the media and had spent 10 years at Reuters, before moving to a similar corporation.

And now he has started a suicide group SOS

Ben Emmerson cleared by Ben Emmerson’s mate.

Ben Emmerson – Cleared by… Ben Emmerson’s chambers?

Mr Emmerson’s chambers – Matrix – set up an inquiry into Ben Emmerson’s conduct, including the alleged sexual assault¹. Mr Emmerson was cleared “without hesitation”.

How thorough was this “inquiry”? What evidence was presented to this “inquiry” for them to come to this conclusion? Did the alleged victim give a statement, was she even spoken to?

Bizarre.

¹Mr Ben Emmerson is innocent until proven guilty.

  • Wyn-Davies was part of a paedophile ring that carried out a string of horrific sex crimes against young children
  • Soldier claimed he raped children and hoarded child pornography to block out the trauma of his war-time experiences in Afghanistan

A soldier who was part of a sex abuse ring that held ‘paedophile parties’ has been jailed indefinitely.

Simon Wyn-Davies, 38, claimed he raped children and hoarded child pornography to block out the trauma of his war-time experiences in Afghanistan.

The Household Cavalry soldier told a judge he was suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome following tours of duty in the war-torn country.

The soldier abused a schoolgirl for up to 18 months and had even begun grooming her to become an animal porn star, the judge was told.

He filmed hundreds of indecent videos and still photo images of the molestation and sent the sick material to a string of other perverts by email.

Wyn-Davies even arranged for an HIV sufferer to sexually assault a girl in the back of his Jeep as he drove around Windsor, the hearing at Reading Crown Court was told.

The former Queen’s guard from Windsor, Berkshire, was given an indeterminate prison sentence for public protection at Reading Crown Court and will serve a minimum of 11-and-a-half years.

He was jailed for 22 counts, including rape of a child under 13, conspiracy to rape and distributing indecent images of children.

His sentence follows the previous conviction of his teaching assistant wife, Fiona Parsons-Davies, aged 45 years, who admitted child cruelty after her ‘willful blindness’ at not reporting sexual abuse to police and was jailed for two years.

Three other members of the gang were also jailed indefinitely in September – retired Nicholas Cordery, 63, from Wiltshire, charity worker Peter Malpas, 47, from Moulton, Northamptonshire and IT trainer Anthony Flack, 54, from Bristol.

Miss Forsyth had been a high-flying personal banker whose clients had included film director David Lean and the Saudi royal family when the Polly Peck affair occurred.

Elizabeth Forsyth, 76, was Nadir’s personal banker at the time of the Polly Peck scandal. In 1996, year she was jailed for five years for handling stolen cash. Asil Nadir sentenced to 10 years for stealing £29 million from his own company more than two decades ago.

The 71-year-old returned to Britain in August 2010 after 17 years in exile following the collapse of his £2 billion company Polly Peck International (PPI).

In March 1996, she was charged with money laundering and found guilty of handling £400,000 of stolen PPI money.

Abuse inquiry defended after victims’ group quits

The Shirley Oaks Survivors Association, for 600 victims who lived in children’s homes in Lambeth, said it had no confidence in the inquiry’s leadership.

Chuka Umunna MP said the inquiry chair, Prof Alexis Jay, should be replaced.

Raymond Stevenson, who has previously spoken about being physically abused during his time at the Shirley Oaks home in the 1970s, said the group’s members had voted “overwhelmingly” on Saturday to pull out of the inquiry.

Mr Stevenson told the BBC that the group “felt relieved not to be part of this mangled attempt to get belated justice for our members” and he called the inquiry an “unpalatable circus”.

“The inquiry has just lurched from disaster to disaster and we do not believe Alexis Jay, the chair, is the right person to wrench open the Pandora’s box of historical lies and cover-ups that have happened over the decades,” he said.

He said the inquiry was not a “genuine attempt” to look at the truth.

“When you look at the debacle that has taken place with resignations, with heads leaving, claims of racial abuse, sexual abuse, this is not an environment we would put our members through,” he said.

In a statement, the group claimed the inquiry’s fourth chair – former social worker Prof Jay – was planning nothing more than a “social work talk shop”, which it said would achieve nothing, and described her as “an uninspiring leader”.

The Shirley Oaks Survivors Association is planning to publish the results of its own investigation.

It claims that the Home Office, which sponsors the inquiry and provided some of its staff, had a role in covering up abuse in the past.

Chuka Umunna MP said there was concern about her social work background because “for many of the survivors… a lot the perpetrators came from that profession”, and further concern about the “severe dysfunction” in the legal team.

“So for all those reasons I don’t have confidence in this chair and I think we need a new one,” he said.

Resignations

The inquiry has been beset by difficulties since it was set up in July 2014 to investigate allegations made against local authorities, religious organisations, the armed forces and public and private institutions in England and Wales, as well as people in the public eye.

Three chairwomen – former president of the High Court Family Division Baroness Butler-Sloss, her replacement, leading lawyer Dame Fiona Woolf, and Justice Goddard, a New Zealand high court judge – have already stood down.

A number of senior lawyers on the inquiry have also quit – the most recent of which was Aileen McColgan, who resigned on Wednesday amid concerns about the inquiry’s leadership.

Ben Emmerson QC, the most senior lawyer on the inquiry, resigned last month, and Elizabeth Prochaska – the inquiry’s second most senior lawyer – had stepped down on 15 September.

This week it was announced the inquiry has also delayed hearings into the late Lord Janner.

Update:

Theresa May insists she has ‘absolute confidence’ in child abuse inquiry chair hours before its probe into Lord Janner allegations is delayed due to ongoing police investigations

  • Prof Aileen McColgan quits Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse 
  • She has concerns about competency of fourth chair, Professor Alexis Jay
  • Two more barristers  are also poised to leave the ailing abuse inquiry 
  • But PM told MPs she still has ‘absolute confidence’ in Professor Alexis Jay 
  • Inquiry’s probe into late Labour peer Lord Janner postponed to allow separate police investigations to take place 

The departure of Professor Aileen McColgan, a law professor at Kings College London, dealt another major blow to the inquiry due to her experience of leading inquiries into child abuse in the Anglican and Catholic Church.

Oscar-winner Matt Damon, supermodel Cindy Crawford and U2 singer Bono were all on the wedding convoy, along with veteran actor Bill Murray and American actress Ellen Barkin.

In Venice, his shipmate Ms Barkin, the star with Al Pacino of the film Sea Of Love — whose most recent marriage was to American billionaire Ronald Perelman — was reportedly swept off her feet by the British lawyer.

The odd couple — Mr Emmerson is nine years her junior — were even briefly engaged.

He had founded (along with others) Matrix Chambers, the holier-than-thou barristers’ set with the then Prime Minister’s wife Cherie Blair in 2000.

One of Mr Emmerson’s favoured juniors was — and continues to be — the glamorous and clever Mrs Clooney – British lawyer Amal Alamuddin

Their most high-profile collaboration came in 2011 when they represented WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange in his fight against extradition to Sweden to face charges of rape and sexual assault.

Mr Emmerson had told the court that Assange’s behaviour towards two women  was not a crime.

Shortly before the Clooney nuptials, he was appointed lead barrister for the Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA).

It emerged that Mr Emmerson’s deputy, Elizabeth Prochaska — the daughter of the Principal of Somerville College, Oxford — had quietly quit the inquiry on September 15 in mysterious circumstances.

In the last fortnight Mr Emmerson,  was suspended from his duties by the fourth inquiry chairwoman Professor Alexis Jay. Prof Jay had ‘become very concerned about aspects of Mr Emmerson’s leadership of the counsel team’. Those ‘aspects’ were not explained, but have been linked to the resignation of Ms Prochaska.

Twenty-four hours after his suspension, Mr Emmerson, a divorced father of four, had also resigned. Then the shutters came down.

He and Ms Prochaska, a Labour Party activist and women’s rights campaigner who is also at Matrix Chambers, separately signed ‘non-disclosure agreements’ so they could not reveal the reasons behind their departures.
An internal investigation into Mr Emmerson’s behaviour was dropped as soon as he left.

How convenient and befitting for a coverup, non-disclosure agreements all round and no further investigation after resignations!


Emmerson leaves under a cloud of toxic rumour concerning his own behaviour behind the scenes — and, it was revealed this week, not a penny in severance pay, unlike the inquiry’s third chair, Dame Lowell Goddard, who received £80,000 in pay and allowances when she resigned in August.

So many rumours flourished — fuelled by BBC2’s Newsnight, which suggested there were ‘serious problems’ in the working relationship between Mr Emmerson and his junior Mrs Prochaska — that fellow Left-wing legal icon Baroness (Helena) Kennedy of the Shaws QC was moved to issue a statement of support. It did little to quell the hearsay.

After leaving Douai, Mr Emmerson studied at Bristol University and was called to the Bar in 1986. He made his first major mark the following year when he co-authored a report, commissioned by the Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers (current President is Michael Mansfield) and a number of trade unions, into the policing of the 1986 Wapping Dispute at the News International headquarters (when war broke out between the print unions and Rupert Murdoch).

His fellow author was another young barrister called Anne Shamash. The two were part of a ‘brilliant young generation’ of civil rights lawyers who emerged during the Nineties.

They married and have four sons, but separated some years ago. Ms Shamash is now an immigration judge and has refused to comment on her ex-husband’s travails.

Conflicts of Interest:

Image result for Douai abbey school in Berkshire

Ben Emmerson was a boarder at the Douai School in Berkshire which was run by the adjacent Benedictine Abbey.

Ironically, a number of the school’s former staff were later convicted of child sex abuse offences and it closed in 1999.

Mr Emmerson replied: ‘I didn’t even know the school had closed after sex abuse scandals involving pupils and staff/teachers. I thought it had closed down after an affair between one of the monks and an adult female parishioner.

‘That all happened a long time after I was there, of course.’

This shows a truly amazing lack of interest for a man who was effectively in charge of an investigation into institutional child sex abuse!


……

Smith began abusing at the school in 1975 – Emmerson was born in 1963 – wouldn’t Emmerson have been a student at the school when Smith was abusing?

Douai Abbey

David Smith, jailed May 2007, was an assistant headmaster at Douai School from 1975, and an Anglican priest from 1981, who sexually abused a series of boys over a 30-year period.[18] The school closed in 1999. He visited schools recruiting for the church choir

The Rev David Smith; Church failed to act against sex abuse vicar

Vicar jailed for decades of sex abuse after church failed to take action

David Smith, 52, managed to groom and abuse six young boys despite warnings being given to the Church of England about his behaviour.

During the two-week trial, Bristol crown court heard that concerns about the vicar were raised with the church on two occasions, first in 1983 and again in 2001.

On both occasions, the complainants were assured the matter had been “dealt with”, but Smith continued to abuse boys in his parish.

Smith, vicar of St John the Evangelist in Clevedon, Somerset, began the abuse in 1975, during his time as assistant headmaster at the Douai Abbey monastic boarding school in Berkshire.

^ Mr Emmerson’s deputy, Elizabeth Prochaska — the daughter of the Principal of Somerville College, Oxford: Alice Prochaska
Dr Alice Prochaska

The former college of Margaret Thatcher, Somerville College, have chosen to establish a Margaret Thatcher scholarship scheme, a scheme in which they will give people the chance to succeed ‘against the odds’ and have a chance to study at Oxford University.

It can certainly be seen as a moving tribute to Somerville’s former pupil Margaret Thatcher.

Somerville College publicly refused to honour former pupil Margaret Thatcher, England’s only female prime minister, in 1985, because they saw her cuts on education and spending as contradictory to their principals. Current principal Dr Alice Prochaska spoke of her hopes to ‘readdress the balance’ of relations with Margaret Thatcher….

…hoping to raise £100 million to fund the scheme from Britain and overseas…

Mikhail Gorbachev, George Bush senior, Nancy Reagan and Tony Blair are amongst the list of high profile patrons that are supporting the scheme.

It is believed that Somerville College will be looking to establish a ‘Thatcher House’ within the college campus, in which students will be able to study

.

The trust is backed by an array of Lady Thatcher’s contemporaries and other eminent figures from across the political spectrum.

In the US George Bush Senior, the former President, and Ronald Reagan’s widow, Nancy, have both pledged their support alongside Henry Kissinger, the former US Secretary of State, George Shultz, the former Treasury Secretary and Robert Gates, the former defence secretary.

More recent US political figures who have agreed to act as patrons include Condoleezza Rice, the former Secretary of State, and Alan Greenspan, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

Mikhail Gorbachev, the former President of the Soviet Union, is another of the patrons along with Brian Mulroney, the former President of Canada.

In Britain, patrons include Sir John Major and Tony Blair, the former Prime Ministers, Lord Owen, the founder of the Social Democratic Party, and Lord Carrington, the former Foreign Secretary.

During a joint press conference with David Cameron in Washington yesterday Barack Obama praised Lady Thatcher as “a great champion of freedom and liberty and of the alliance that we carry on today”.

Specific case studies will be identified by the investigation. The first case study will examine the English Benedictine Congregation which has been the subject of numerous allegations of child sexual abuse, including at schools run by the Congregation. The Inquiry will examine the relationship between Orders such as the Benedictines and the Catholic Church in England and Wales and consider how that relationship impacts on child protection. In this way the Inquiry will evaluate whether any failings identified within the English Benedictine Congregation, and within any other case studies identified as part of the investigation, are representative of wider failings within the Catholic Church.

Frank Prochaska was “given access to the Royal Archives at Windsor and he has thus been able to provide a fuller picture of the royal family’s charity work than ever before,” noted Piers Brendon in the New Statesman and Society. The result, Brendon mused, is a book that is “distinctly odd,” but which is nonetheless a “serious and original work of scholarship.”
Frank Prochaska:

 “Giving what amounted to charitable status to statutory bodies stunned the charitable establishment,” he said, noting that Sara Morrison, (Sir Peter Morrison’s sister-in-law) chair of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations at the time, said the act was “the most damaging blow suffered by the voluntary sector for many years”.

He said that the existing contracting culture for public services had resulted in charities “swimming into the mouth of the Leviathan” by moving further from their roots and becoming less likely to be independent.

“The use of charities to do the government’s bidding has been criticised as a devolved form of government administration that turns the intermediary institutions of civil society into agencies of the state through contracts and financial control,” Prochaska said.

Mulberry Bush School is an independent residential special school in the village of Standlake in Oxfordshire, for children aged 5 to 12 years.

The school was founded in 1948 by psychologist Barbara Dockar-Drysdale. It is a registered charity.[1]

Stephen and Pip Dockar-Drysdale -Pip, living in a house on her husband’s family’s 2,000-acre estate in Oxfordshire,  took in evacuees from London.

She explained the theory of the super ego to a Jewish refugee who was familiar with psychotherapy. Impressed, he advised her to read Freud. The next thing that happened was that the Ministry of Education asked her to set up a school for disturbed children

She trained as a psychotherapist, at the Tavistock Clinic and at the Maudsley Hospital. There she met Melanie Klein, Anna Freud and Leila Rendel (who was running the Caldecott Community for disturbed children that she had founded in 1911), among other pioneers in the same field. She started her most creative and exciting work with children referred to her by child guidance clinics: she showed enormous determination to understand them and had an extremely focused mind. Her greatest mentor was the eminent child psychiatrist, Donald Winnicott, who encouraged her to extend her work.

Psychologist Barbara Dockar-Drysdale’s mentor was Donald Winnicott who was influenced by the work of Ronald Fairbairn, father of paedophile Nicholas Fairbairn.

Mulberry Bush – In some ways it was chaotic and the fright of Home Office inspectors.  In 1969, Pip left the Mulberry Bush as principal, but remained as consultant psychotherapist and took on a similar role at the Cotswold Community.

Tavistock & Rudolf Hess

John Rawling Rees became its medical director (Tavistock) from 1934. This group specialised in the new ‘dynamic psychologies’ of Sigmund Freud and his followers, and in particular the Object relations theory of Ronald Fairbairn (Nicholas Fairbairn‘s father) and others.  Recruited to the British Army during the second world war, he became an army Brigadier.

Brigadier John Rawlings Rees and the Rudolf Hess affair

Together with Henry Dicks, a fellow member of the Tavistock Clinic group, Rees was charged with the care of Hitler’s Deputy Rudolf Hess at the secret prison locations where he was held following his capture after landing in Scotland.[3]

Over the four-year period from June 1941 up to Hess’s appearance at the Nuremberg trial, Rees apparently established a relationship with Hess: Hess’s diaries record many meetings with Rees, referred to at this time as Colonel Rees, in which Hess accused his captors of attempting to poison, drug, and ‘mesmerize’ him.[4]

In 1945, Rees was a member of the three-man British panel (with Churchill’s personal physician Lord Moran, and eminent neurologist Dr George Riddoch), which assessed Hess’s capability to stand trial for war crimes.[5]

Post-War “Operation Phoenix”

After the war, Rees and five others got together and formed an ‘Interim Planning Committee’ (IPC) chaired by Wilfred Bion, meeting twice a week to formulate a new way forward for their work at the Tavistock, based on war-time experience.[1]

Wheels Within Wheels Or Flies Drawn To The Same Incestuously Corrupt Shithouse?

I have taken the title of today’s post from a comment left by Mike Claybrook in response to a previous post. Mike offered it as a reflection on the cronyism and corruption evident in north east Wales, but it’s a remarkably succinct summary of the prevailing situation in the many institutions, political parties and regions of the UK that have been discussed on this blog.

Readers will be aware that I spent my youth living under the long dark days of Thatcherism and I don’t think that I’ve yet recovered – when I was in north Wales it was a case of poverty and being the victim of the paedophiles’ friends and when I was in London it was a case of witnessing the extreme fuckwittery and greed of the highest echelons of the medical profession whilst they told me that I was a naïve sheepshagger because I wasn’t interested in joining in with their idiocy. I didn’t know at the time, but they too were the paedophiles’ friends, but just rather richer, grander and rather better connected friends than those in north Wales. The paedophiles’ friends in north Wales ended up with OBEs, the ones in London bagged knighthoods and peerages. Despite the joy that erupted throughout the UK at the news of Thatcher’s resignation however, the nightmare of course continued – because John Major took over with pretty much the same bunch of goons in senior positions.

One of the more unpleasant spectacles in the early days of Major’s Gov’t occurred at the Conservative Party Conference in Brighton in October 1992, when Peter Lilley decided that the way to endear himself to the Party was to launch into a vindictive poisonous attack on some of the most vulnerable in society. There had been much gnashing of teeth about the ballooning numbers of people claiming sickness benefits – which was of course happening because Tebbit et al had spent years making alterations to the way in which the unemployment figures were calculated in order to hide the ghastly truth and GPs had been quietly encouraged to shift claimants over onto sickness benefits where possible. Lilley achieved notoriety by singing a pastiche of the Lord High Executioner’s ‘little list’ song from The Mikado. He entertained the conference with a ditty about having a ‘little list’ of people who ‘won’t be missed’ – they included people claiming social security benefits, unmarried pregnant women and socialists no less. Liiley’s performance was truly unedifying.

Readers might have noted the date of the Party Conference concerned – October 1992. Six months after the arson attack on a building in Brighton which killed five people with connections to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Two more deaths resulted from this event as well – the man who was alleged to have confessed to starting the fire was found dead himself days later and another young man who survived the arson attack alleged that the former residents of the children’s homes in north Wales were being murdered because they had knowledge of liaisons between child prostitutes and politicians but he was subsequently found dead himself after giving evidence. For full details of the fire and it’s aftermath, see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’. Presumably it was felt that after this fire, a few more people who wouldn’t be missed were out of the way.

Well Peter, I’ve got a list as well – a list of all those people whom I know colluded with the activities of a vicious paedophile ring in north Wales. Admittedly it’s not a little list – because of the degree of corruption that was involved it’s a very long list and many have already been named on this blog, but there are still a few obvious loose ends to tie up. So here is my own additional little list, to be read with reference to – and correlated with – previous posts.

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 there was of course a woman PM. Harriet did know this. As she explained her ‘visceral hostility’ to Thatcher to Hennessey, she recounted a little anecdote – that just after her first baby was born (that will have been Joe Dromey who was famously taken into Parliament as a newborn), she was walking down a corridor with her baby when she saw Thatcher approaching. She was so desperate not to allow Thatcher’s ‘eyes to fall on my baby’ that she dived into a side room. Harriet told Hennessey that if that side room hadn’t have been available, she would have covered her baby’s face with a blanket to prevent the wicked witch from giving him the evil eye. I wouldn’t really want any children of mine to be left in the company of Thatcher, but the difference between me and you Harriet is that once I obtained the evidence pointing to a paedophile ring in operation with connections to Westminster that was concealed at the highest levels, I published it as soon as I was in a position to do so. You did not. But then there never was any chance of your child being taken into care by the sort of fuckwitted social worker like Tessa Jowell who were employed in the London boroughs in such great numbers and then being transported to a children’s home in north Wales where he would have been beaten, starved, forced to work free of charge, sexually abused and then trafficked back down to London as a rent boy. That Harriet is why Joe is now a senior research fellow in the IPPR, not stuck in an abusive mental health system, in prison or dead.

Since she released her blockbuster ‘A Woman’s Work’ recently, Harriet has explained that the reason why she never became leader of the Labour Party is of course because she is a woman and Gordon Discriminated. So we all had a lucky escape thanks to Gordon’s entrenched sexism.

There is yet another nightmare scenario looming on the horizon. There is talk in Labour circles of who is going to succeed Jeremy and I am horrified to read that the name being touted about is Emily Thornberry, on the grounds not of her brilliance but that she is of the left and that the next leader ‘must be a woman’. That’s sounds a rather dogmatic position, but if it has to be a woman, please don’t let that woman be Emily Thornberry. Emily is of course best-known for sending out an offensive and massively damaging tweet whilst she was campaigning – a tweet of a photo of a new-build house draped in numerous flags of St George with a white van parked in the drive. Emily’s tweet suggested that the inhabitant of the said house must be a right wing oik from the lower orders – and the world went apeshit with a backlash. Emily was denounced as the worst example of the Labour metropolitan elite, out of touch with and contemptuous of less privileged people. The damage to the Labour Party was massive, but instead of accepting that she probably shouldn’t try and take a leading role in the Party lest she inflict more damage, Emily conducted a series of media interviews in which she stressed her humble origins as a kid from a council estate. She then continued to appear on TV as a spokesperson for Labour, screwing up badly because she didn’t know salient facts – which she blamed on the sexism of the interviewers. At the same time, much appeared in the press about the very expensive house in which she lives – the same part of Islington as the Blairs, just around the corner from Margaret Hodge -and it was revealed that she owns a number of other not at all cheap properties as well. It was confirmed that for a while as a child Emily had lived on a council estate, although no-one was quite sure when or why – yet her father was an international lawyer, a Professor at King’s College London and UN Assistant Secretary General. Emily’s mother had been a Labour Councillor and the Mayor in Guildford. Emily’s mum had encouraged her to go into politics – Emily became Labour MP (she was selected on an all-woman shortlist) for Islington and Finsbury in 2005. It was also revealed that Emily is married to High Court Judge Sir Christopher Nugee, so she is actually Lady Emily Nugee, but she became very vexed indeed when David Cameron called her that.

As ever though, the right wing press haven’t done their homework – well maybe they have, but unlike Service Shenanigans, there is an elephant in the room that they won’t tackle. Has Sir Christopher Nugee presided over miscarriages of justice? No, he doesn’t seem to have. Has his chambers been involved in anything shameful regarding court cases involving politicians and children? No – although the chambers probably doesn’t have clean hands, it specialises in finance, including off-shore trusts.

The elephant in the room is Emily. Before Emily became an MP she was a barrister, between 1985 and 2005. She worked at Took’s Court Chambers, the chambers of Michael Mansfield. I wrote to Michael Mansfield in 1993 or 1994 and informed him of my prosecution in Bangor Magistrates Court for ‘staring at a social worker in Safeways’, after I had complained about law-breaking on the part of the mental health services. I also complimented him on his recently published book ‘Presumed Guilty’, about miscarriages of justice and the abuse of public order legislation – that’s why I wrote to him, I explained that it was that legislation (which Thatcher’s Gov’t had specifically passed to use against striking miners) that was used to prosecute me. I received a reply from Mr Mansfield, but it simply thanked me for my letter and said ‘it is always good to have support’. Michael Mansfield will have known when he read my letter that there had been a recent media storm regarding the possible existence of a paedophile ring in north Wales providing children to politicians and that there were allegations that the police, the social services, the Top Doctors, lawyers, judges and the Welsh Office were involved in a huge cover-up. He will have known that it was a social worker from Bangor, Gwynedd – where I lived, the address was on my letter to him – who had been sacked for blowing the whistle on the paedophile ring. He will have known that a senior police officer, Gordon Anglesea, had been named by two young men on TV as having abused them when they were in Bryn Estyn children’s home and that Gordon Anglesea had launched a libel case against the media outlets that named him and that he was being supported by the Police Federation.

One would have thought that my letter would have had the antennae of the UK’s most high profile radical barrister twitching like mad. Mansfield had defended members of the IRA, acted for the Birmingham Six and given his services to the NUM free of charge during the miners’ strike. He had a reputation as a lawyer who was not afraid to take on the British State at it’s worst. But Mr Mansfield walked straight by on the other side of the road. Although he must have realised that someone had written to him who had evidence that if, pursued, could do serious damage to John Major’s Gov’t as well as to the politicians involved in the previous administrations – including Thatcher herself, who had destroyed his personal friend Scargill. But defending members of the IRA is obviously easier than defending someone under attack from the paedophiles’ friends. Emily was working at Tooks when I sent that letter to Michael Mansfield. Other people who have worked with Mr Mansfied include Helena Kennedy and Patricia Scotland, both stars of this blog and members of the network of paedophiles’ friends…

Not only is Emily one of the paedophiles’ friends, but King’s College London – the home of yet more of the paedophiles’ friends – where Emily’s dad held a Chair, was host to some interesting activities. In the 80s there was a scam going on among some of the students. In order to earn a few quid they were marrying foreign nationals in order for them to acquire permission to enter or remain in the UK. Someone I worked with at St George’s, whilst he had been a physiology student at Kings, had married one of the other students from America to enable her to stay in the UK. He had been paid many thousands of pounds for his service – after the marriage they shared a house whilst leading a separate existence and went their separate ways entirely a few years later, once the legal requirements had been fulfilled. There was also a professor in King’s College School of Medicine who was having sex with his own children. This was openly discussed among the Top Doctors on the London medical scene. No-one suggested any sort of investigation into the Professor of gynaecology concerned.

I think that I’m going to have to devise a classification system for the paedophiles’ friends because there are just so many of them. There’s going to have to be a category of the paedophiles’ bestest friends, such as Arfon Jones, the esteemed North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner and dear old Dafydd and Lucille. Then there will have to be the paedophiles’ very good friends, such as Dr Peter Higson. Then the paedophiles good friends; then the paedophiles’ ‘colleagues’ – a mixed bag, some of whom have no problems with the paedophiles at all but this category also includes some who tolerate them in order to gain personal advancement (a very big category); then the biggest category of all, containing many thousands of people from across the UK in many walks of life – those who knew what the paedophiles were doing but were too spineless to do anything at all, no matter how minor, to stop them. I might also need a sub-category – the paedophiles’ friends who are just in it for the money. I met a few of these at St George’s. They would actually drool over the idea of serious money and say things like ‘ooh I’d love to be rich’ – they reached fever-pitch after visits to the West End when they would catch glimpses of the money-laundering crooks with gangster connections of whom they were so envious. They didn’t like me very much, they accused me of being ‘naive’ and being like I was because I was a sheepshagger from Wales. No you stupid fuckers, it was because I had seen what was happening to those kids who were living in the children’s homes in north Wales and being groomed for sex work in London who dared to complain. I met them in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh didn’t I Dafydd – before they died, went to prison or disappeared off the face of the planet.

2 March 1998

SECRET Service agents bugged and tailed a Conservative MP who later became a Cabinet minister, according to a potentially explosive book by a former agent now living in Australia.

Anthony Holland, who describes his work as an MI5 and MI6 “asset”, claims that the MP was targeted because he was thought to be having a gay affair with the Tory peer Lord Robin Maugham, nephew of the author Somerset Maugham.

If true, his revelations will further embarrass the security services and result in calls for tighter controls on their activities. Last year, the Labour government was rocked to its core by the revelations of former MI5 officer David Shayler, who described surveillance operations on potential “enemies of the state” – who included John Lennon, several Labour MPs and a young Jack Straw, now the Home Secretary.

In Mr Holland’s book, which is due to be published in the summer by a small Melbourne-based publisher, he describes operations in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Iran, Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. Working as a freelance agent for MI5 and MI6, Mr Holland, 54, claims his real skills as an engineer allowed him to be placed in sensitive areas by the security services.

During one period in 1969, he was found a job at the Rossing uranium mine in South West Africa in order to find out whom it was supplying. He says he reported that it was feeding the Israeli nuclear programme, and even describes one meeting he had with General Moshe Dayan, the Israeli defence minister.

“At that time, we were well aware what they were up to,” Mr Holland claimed from his Melbourne home. “They weren’t supposed to be developing their own bomb, but we helped them by turning a blind eye.”

In Britain, his most audacious operation involved gathering evidence of the MP’s alleged affair with Lord Maugham. He says the MP was regarded as a future minister and a potential security risk, although Mr Holland suspects the evidence was gathered to be used as leverage at a later date. Lord Maugham, who was openly homosexual, died in 1981.

The book, which is known only as “Project 21” at Geoff Coxon Publishing in Melbourne, describes how two addresses in London and Brighton, East Sussex, were put under round-the-clock surveillance. “By the time I joined the operation, most of the groundwork was done,” Mr Holland says in the book.

“They [MI5] had Maugham’s flat bugged throughout and the telephone tapped, and they had two miniature television cameras wired into the ceiling lights in the main bedroom and the lounge, so we could watch the show in comfort.”

The former minister denied the affair when approached by The Independent this week. He said he had no knowledge of ever having been put under surveillance.

Other chapters include details of a spying operation that Mr Holland says he conducted on a German project to help Iran develop a nuclear weapon.

Mr Holland wrote the book as the latest stage in a campaign to clear his name of a crime he says he did not commit. He was jailed in 1981 at Bradford Crown Court for allegedly receiving stolen goods amounting to pounds 250. He claims that he was framed by the security services.

Although it was his first offence, he was jailed for 12 months. Before his term was over, however, he was freed and sent to a new life in Australia, allegedly with the complicity of MI6. Melvyn Hodgson, the man he allegedly persuaded to steal for him, was found hanging in a prison cell in 1992.

His case has been taken up by Australian politicians and is being examined by the Criminal Cases Review Commission.

Dr John Illingworth, a Leeds city councillor, has examined the evidence against Mr Holland and described it this week as “preposterous”. He added: “I don’t believe he would be convicted today. It is difficult to check the rest of the claims in the book, but those that can be checked are accurate.”

Mr Holland said: “The only man who could clear me was Melvyn Hodgson because I believe he made a false confession. Once I heard he had been found hanging, I decided to blow the lid off these guys.

“I still don’t know why they framed me, but I had been associating with a suspected IRA commander and perhaps they thought I was going over.

Once the book is published, I know I’ll never be able to return to England. I just want to clear my name. I simply can’t let them win.”

Geoff Coxon, Mr Holland’s publisher, is hoping to avoid the kind of legal fight that resulted in Peter Wright’s book Spycatcher being dragged through the courts.

“If it is published in Australia, your Official Secrets Act does not apply,” he said.

“We are publishing in Victoria because in New South Wales truth is a defence, and we have gone to great lengths to prove the veracity of Anthony’s claims.

“You might have a bit of difficulty getting it over there, but if it goes well, we hope to launch it on the American market next year.”

The Home Office said it would not comment until it had seen the material. It never discusses operational matters.

Keith Vaz, Charities, Friends etc (Updated)

Bercow Uses Personal Veto to Block Vaz Investigation

We applied under the Freedom of Information Act to get papers relating to Mr Vaz’s trips abroad.

Clerks raised concerns – denied by the Leicester MP – that Mr Vaz had not abided by all the rules for trips. We wanted to know if those concerns ever become formal complaints.

If they did, did the liaison committee, which controls this process, do anything about it? This is clearly an area where, one could argue, the Freedom of Information Act should bite.

If the administration of MPs’ expenses is not covered by privilege, why should the administration of committee trips be? MPs are involved – but they oversaw expenses too. Could knowing which travel agent booked tickets for MPs be a route to power for a would-be tyrant? What is the threat to free speech?

Some months ago, Mr Bercow personally made the argument that this paperwork was all covered by privilege. But I looked forward to a tribunal when this could be tested.

A personal veto

Normally, this sort of determination can be referred to the Information Commissioner and then to the tribunals and courts to judge whether that finding is fair. My judgment is, if they did that, I had a reasonable chance of winning.

I suspect Mr Bercow agreed. That would explain why he has now used an unusual personal power to block any appeals.

This week, I was notified he has issued a “certificate” under section 34(3) of the Freedom of Information Act. This is, in effect, a personal release veto.

These sorts of vetos are supposed to be used sparingly – an emergency reserve power to guard sacred spaces if courts get it wrong.

That is because their use means I have no rights of appeal. The Information Commissioner’s view is that, since the certificate is genuine, that is the the end of the matter. Any appeal to the tribunals will automatically be discarded. I can ask a judge to review his decision, but it would entail looking at a decision taken by a parliamentary officer. That would hit privilege from another direction.

The net result is that the Speaker, who denies bullying, has made an order to hide information about the behaviour of his close personal friend, Keith Vaz, a man who also denies bullying – supposedly to protect MPs’ freedom of speech.

And then he has gone out of his way to use a personal veto to make sure no-one could even consider reviewing that questionable decision.

You can understand why staff are so suspicious about whether MPs will ever let themselves be judged by outsiders when it comes to bullying and harassment.

John Bercow invokes parliamentary privilege to block BBC Newsnight’s freedom of information query over Keith Vaz bullying claims

Labour declined to investigate bullying complaint against Valerie Vaz

17 October 2018

The shadow cabinet minister leading Labour’s response to the Westminster bullying scandal has herself been spoken to by her party leadership after a bullying complaint, the New Statesman has learned.

Valerie Vaz, the shadow leader of the House of Commons, was met by Jeremy Corbyn’s office and that of Nick Brown, the Labour chief whip, after a former member of her Westminster staff complained that they had been subject to workplace bullying while employed by Vaz in 2012. She denies the allegations.

The New Statesman understands that the complainant also contacted Laura Cox’s inquiry into bullying and harassment in parliament to raise the same concerns. Vaz led Labour’s response to an urgent question on the report on Tuesday.

In a letter to the complainant in August, seen by the NS, Labour said it would not pursue any formal investigation or disciplinary action against Vaz on the grounds that its historical nature would make it difficult to judge fairly.

The party’s Head of Complaints wrote: “The Labour Party has not codified a strict time limit on historic investigations but we have considered your case and believe the passage of time means it will be difficult to conclude a case fairly. Therefore we will not be taking formal disciplinary action.”

She added: “Valerie Vaz has been met by [the] Leader’s Office and the Chief Whip’s Office following your complaint, to be reminded of her requirements as an employer under the Labour Party Code of Conduct.

“It has been decided in this case that there will not be an investigation into the complaint and no further action taken. The option of complaint via the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards remains an option to you.”

While the Standards Commissioner is able to investigate complaints dating back seven years, the process is ultimately overseen by the MPs on the Commons Committee on Standards.

Parliament’s new independent complaints and grievances procedure, introduced in July, has no MP oversight but cannot investigate claims that date to before the start of the 2017 parliament. Vaz left the cross-party group that oversaw its development in January 2018.

In her report on bullying and harassment in parliament, released on Monday, Cox recommended that the new grievance procedures be given the power to investigate historical allegations.

Labour responded to the complaint against Vaz before that recommendation was made, noting: “The ICGP agreed by the House of Commons in July 2018 selected “the start of this Parliament for the retrospective application of investigations under the Scheme” on the advice of Tom Linden QC that “an investigation of a complaint will be more difficult the further into the past you go.”

However, in the event that Cox’s recommendation was adopted, the complaint against Vaz would be admissible under the new procedure. Asked about the report today, a spokesman for Jeremy Corbyn said Labour was pushing for the issue of historical allegations to be “properly addressed”.

Vaz has avoided explicitly endorsing the recommendations made in Cox’s report and has instead promised to “look seriously” at their detail. Responding after its publication on Monday, she said: “Sexual harassment and bullying must not be tolerated in any workplace. Some of the accounts in this report are truly shocking.

“The House of Commons has recently passed an independent complaints process to deal with cases of bullying, sexual harassment and victimisation under the supervision of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards.

“Labour thanks Dame Laura Cox QC DBE for her report and will look seriously at the detail of the recommendations. We will continue to work on a cross-party basis to tackle this and ensure new procedures are as robust and effective as possible in order to protect everyone working in and visiting the House of Commons.”

A spokesperson for Vaz said: “Valerie vigorously denies these allegations, which are vindictive and defamatory, and is committed to tackling bullying and harassment in Westminster, which has gone unchallenged for too long.”

A Labour Party spokesperson said: “The Labour Party takes all complaints of bullying extremely seriously, and we insisted that new complaints processes in Parliament fully cover bullying as well as harassment and sexual misconduct.

“We are pleased these processes are now in place and we will continue to bring forward proposals to ensure they as robust as possible. The Labour Party’s complaints procedures are confidential so we cannot comment on individual complaints.”

Keith Vaz accused of ‘bullying members of staff in House of Commons’

1 Aug 2018

The MP allegedly made comments about a clerk’s race and fertility

Veteran Labour politician Keith Vaz has reportedly been accused of bullying from a number of clerks as they tried to uphold the rules and processes in the House of Commons.


The MP for Leicester East allegedly made comments about one clerk’s race and told her she was bad at her job because she was “not a mother”, when she raised an issue about him not following rules and standards.

Jenny McCullough told the BBC’s Newsnight she was repeatedly on the receiving end of Mr Vaz’s bullying and was forced to leave her job because of his behaviour.

Mr Vaz has denied the allegations.

Ms McCullough served as the second clerk of the Home Affairs Select Committee which Mr Vaz chaired from 2007 to 2016, until he was forced to quit after the Sunday Mirror revealed he had engaged in unprotected sexual activity with male prostitutes and had said he would pay for cocaine if they wished to use it.

She told the programme that he made the comments when she attempted to enforce a set of rules that designed to stop professional visits abroad turning into personal holidays or business trips.

During a trip to Russia and Ukraine she allegedly attempted to highlight to him that he had not followed protocol on a number of occasions.

When she did so, she said Mr Vaz launched a “tirade” against her in a hotel lobby.

“At one point during this tirade, he told me that I wasn’t capable of serving the committee because I wasn’t a mother,” she told Newsnight. “All I knew was it wasn’t normal to be harangued about my fertility status in the reception of a hotel room, at public expense in front of my colleague on the team.

“I think there were other members of the committee there, I think there may have been some foreign office staff and other guests of the hotel.”

She also alleged that Mr Vaz made jokes that Ms McCullough was a security threat, on account of her Northern Irish background and accent.

The treatment continued well after the trip had come to an end, she said, adding that she was eventually asked to stop coming to team meetings because her presence resulted in Mr Vaz being too disruptive and not getting any work done.

She said when she highlighted the treatment to her managers, it was treated as though it was normal.

“It was as though there was something wrong with me, that I was too sensitive, that this was normal. And I found that a really hard response to deal with because they seem content to let Keith Vaz deliver this lesson to me by his treatment of me,” she said.

She said she did not put in a formal complaint because she was “afraid” of Mr Vaz and that as he was well connected she “thought it could only end badly”.

Ms McCullough is not the only clerk to raise a complaint about Mr Vaz’s behaviour, the programme reported.

The Independent has contacted Mr Vaz for a comment, but none had arrived at the time of publication.

However, a representative for the MP told Newsnight that he “did not berate Ms McCullough at any stage whether before during or after the Russia trip, nor did he at any time insult her maternal status”.

They added: “Furthermore, our client finds the allegation that he would make insulting jokes about anyone on the basis of race extremely offensive” and “would never trivialise a person’s ethnic background. ​No complaint or allegation of this nature has ever been brought to his attention. Our client had considered that he and Ms McCullough had previously had a good working relationship, and had always considered her to be very effective as a clerk.”

Renewed calls for Labour MP’s resignation amid fresh allegations of misconduct

Records show Keith Vaz accepted VIP tickets to Leicester City Premiere League football matches during the time he was meant to be too ‘ill’ to participate in other ethics probe

25th April 2018

SHAMED Labour MP Keith Vaz faced fresh calls to quit last night after it emerged he attended a string of Premier League football matches despite being deemed too “ill” for his rent boys probe.

Parliament’s sleaze watchdog suspended the investigation into allegations he paid for rent boys due to his illness in December.

 

But despite the three-month pause Mr Vaz accepted invitations for VIP hospitality at Leicester City football matches.

The Register of MPs’ Financial Interests reveals he accepted £330 worth of hospitality on February 24 and March 18.

The latter match was three days before Parliament’s Standards Commissioner reopened her inquiry into Mr Vaz.

Mr Vaz has also travelled nearly 5,000 miles to India and took a trip to Saudi Arabia during the suspended investigation.

Mr Vaz issued a grovelling public apology to his wife and children in 2016 after it emerged he had paid two male escorts for their services.

A newspaper sting revealed Keith Vaz tried to hide his real identity by telling them he was a washing machine salesman called Jim.

The escorts claimed he asked them to bring poppers and offered to reimburse a third man for buying cocaine.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said the latest revelations of Mr Vaz’s activities during his suspended investigation was proof he’s no longer fit to be an MP.

He said: “As we can see from his register of interest Vaz wasn’t too ill to accept hospitality at LCFC. This shows that the Standards Commissioner was right to kick off the investigation into his rent boys and cocaine incident again.

“I have long been of the belief that Keith Vaz is not a fit and proper person to serve in the House of Commons and he should resign immediately.”

The outgoing Standards Commissioner Kathryn Hudson suspended the probe days before Christmas “on the basis of a medical assessment”.

Her successor Kathryn Stone reopened it after a fresh medical assessment last month

Sleaze probe into Keith Vaz over male escorts is BACK ON after standards watchdog decides Labour MP is well enough to be investigated

  • Sleaze inquiry into Labour’s Keith Vaz had been put on hold for ‘medical reason’
  • The MP was accused of meeting male prostitutes in 2016 newspaper sting 
  • Married Vaz stood down as Home Affairs Committee chair after scandal broke
  • Questions have been raised over health as he has continued to carry out work 

A sleaze probe into Keith Vaz and male escorts is back on after the parliamentary standards watchdog decided he is well enough to face investigation.

The inquiry into the veteran Labour MP was suspended in December ‘for medical reasons’.

Questions have been raised as he has continued to take part in engagements in the UK and around the world.

However, commissioner Kathryn Stone confirmed on her website today that she has resumed her investigation. 

Mr Vaz, who is diabetic, did not respond to a request for comment this afternoon.

Married Mr Vaz, who has two children, stood down as chairman of the Commons home affairs committee after his involvement with male prostitutes was exposed by a newspaper sting in 2016.

During the liaison, at which he claimed his name was Jim and that he was a washing machine salesman, he discussed buying cocaine with one of the Romanian rent boys, with undercover film footage of him saying he would pay for the class-A drugs but did not want to take any himself.

Later that year, Scotland Yard dropped its investigation into Mr Vaz, but a separate probe by the Commons sleaze watchdog was due to look at whether the MP was guilty of a conflict of interest as he had been leading a review of vice laws at the time of the allegations.

The inquiry was also due to examine whether he had caused ‘significant damage’ to Parliament’s reputation

But in December, the standards commissioner Kathryn Hudson cited medical reasons when she suspended the long-running investigation into Mr Vaz.

However, that same month, Mr Vaz reportedly went on a trip to Saudi Arabia, while in January he posted a picture of himself in Goa, India, with government minister Rohan Khaunte.

That month he was also photographed alongside Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn at a meeting of the all party parliamentary group on Yemen.

Since the investigation into his conduct was halted by the standards commissioner, the Leicester East MP has opened a new swimming pool in the city, attended planning meetings, travelled nearly 5,000 miles to India and took a trip to Saudi Arabia.

n an outing earlier this month, Mr Vaz appeared alongside Bollywood actor Shatrughan Sinha at an event in London, where they were both pictured on stage.

Mr Sinha told the website Bollywood Hungama how he had been invited to come to the UK by the Labour MP.

He said: ‘Keith and the Indian community in London wanted to honour me. I couldn’t say no. This was a huge and humbling honour coming from my brothers and sisters on British soil.’

The MP was also a VIP guest at the Festival of Polish Folklore in Leicester on Sunday, described on its website as a vibrant celebration of Polish dance, song and music that featured more than 400 performers.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5527899/Sleaze-probe-Keith-Vaz-male-escorts-ON.html

 

 

‘Too sick to be investigated’ Keith Vaz was spotted at both a Bollywood and a dance festival at different ends of the country in the last week. The MP was a VIP guest at the Polish Folklore festival at De Montfort Hall, Leicester on Sunday. Earlier, he attended a Bollywood festival in London where he was pictured with a famous actor:

“Shatrughan Sinha was honoured in London by Keith Vaz the MP from the British Labour Party. During a Q-and-A session after being honoured Shatrughan Sinha was asked which distinguished Indian he would like to play on screen.”

Guido revealed how last month Vaz was spotted opening a swimming pool, attending council meetings, an APPG and a music gig in Leicester. In December Guido asked what had happened to the Standards Commissioner’s investigation into Keith Vaz, which still hasn’t reported back after nearly a year and a half. The Vaz inquiry remains “suspended for medical reasons”. Becoming embarrassing for the parliamentary authorities…

Keith Vaz Makes Trips to India and Saudi Arabia – But ‘Too Ill’ to Face Male Prostitutes Investigation

11 Feb 2018

Labour MP Keith Vaz has remained active internationally, despite an investigation into footage of him using male prostitutes and discussing Class A drugs being suspended due to alleged ill health.

The former Chair of the Commons Select Committee has visited India and Saudi Arabia and attended several engagements in his constituency, all whilst claiming to be too ill to face justice.

In Leicester, he has opened a new swimming pool, attended planning meetings, met a housing developer, and is even alleged to have been spotted at a music gig.

He has also been well enough to appear in public alongside Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and table a number of parliamentary questions.

Now, a Tory MP has compiled a dossier of his activities and is calling for the parliamentary standards watchdog to resume their investigation into his alleged use of Romanian rent boys and hard drugs, the Daily Mailreports.

Mr. Vaz was caught discussing sex and the illegal substances in undercover footage shot by the Daily Mirror in 2016, but has carried on as a member of parliament, and even been appointed to the Justice select committee.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, who says his office had compiled a dossier on Mr. Vaz’s appearances that would be passed to the standards commissioner, commented:

“He is supposedly unfit to answer questions about his conduct in relation to rent boys and cocaine, but he appears to be out and about in Leicester and elsewhere. He is the most healthy-looking ‘ill’ person I’ve ever seen.

“At the end of the day if he’s unfit to be held to the standards of an MP then he’s not fit to be an MP.

“The parliamentary standards watchdog says she has independent medical advice to say that he cannot face questions. But he looks surprisingly well to me.”

The standards commissioner’s office said: “When she has fresh independent medical advice, the commissioner will review it.”

Mr. Vaz’s office did not respond to request for a comment.

It’s been a busy week for Keith Vaz, first accused of abusing his position and now embroiled in another mysterious scandal over his election expenses. His local paper report that Vaz spent £100 to use the premises on Uppingham Road, Leicester – his own taxpayer-funded constituency office. Vaz’s election agent Piara Singh Clair explains: “we did it because we needed a room and it would have been expensive to hire another one. It was a nominal sum”, bizarrely adding that no money had actually changed hands despite it being declared as an expense. If no money was actually spent, why was it falsely declared to the Electoral Commission? Curiouser and curiouser…

Investigation: Pupils taught in huts as head pockets £400,000

A headteacher who faces the sack over allegations that he received unlawful bonuses took home more than £400,000 in a year — four times his official salary — the Standard can reveal.

 

Sir Alan Davies

An auditor’s report alleges Sir Alan Davies was part of a culture of nepotism and rewards that saw staff take home at least £1.6 million in bonuses and other extra payments.

Sir Alan, head of 1,900-pupil Copland Community College in Wembley, received “what appear to be unlawful and irrational payments” from funds that should have been spent on education, according to Brent council’s confidential investigation. A copy of the investigator’s initial findings, seen by the Standard, alleges:

At least 10 senior staff — and Sir Alan’s caretaker son — received rewards under the school’s “sharing in success” bonus policy.

Sir Alan took home £403,278 last year but his basic salary was £103,000.

The bonuses were approved by the school’s chairman of governors, Dr Indravadan Purshottamdas Patel.

The full amount of bonuses has not yet been calculated, but the total extra payments known so far is £1,565,700.

Last week, Sir Alan, his deputy Dr Richard Evans and bursar Columbus Udokoro were suspended over allegations that the bonus scheme broke the law. Children’s Secretary Ed Balls said he was “extremely disturbed” by the payments.

But the investigator’s findings revealed the scale of the payments was far greater than originally feared.

As a foundation school Copland has more control over its own budget and assets than a community comprehensive run by the council. Ministers want more schools to become foundation trusts, with powers to run their own affairs. But while Sir Alan and his colleagues benefited from bonuses, the school’s buildings fell into disrepair.

In 2006, inspectors warned the rundown classrooms were undermining pupils’ education. A shanty-town of temporary huts now stands where a new sixth-form block should be, while the humanities department had to cope with a major sewage leak. History teacher Shane Johnschwager, NASUWT union representative, said: “If the kids were cattle the authorities would have closed us down. My room has been painted once — by me, in the school holidays with paint I paid for.

“I have holes in the wall, a broken desk, old furniture, no interactive whiteboard, broken blinds, a flaking ceiling. Other rooms are worse.”

The school has been earmarked for redevelopment for six years. Under the plans, a £120 million “village” will include new school buildings, two gyms, a pool and floodlit all-weather pitch, plus 453 flats and shops.

But the development, overseen by Sir Alan, has setbacks. The school racked up a £1 million debt to a property firm when an earlier deal broke down.

Yet, according to the Brent council investigation, Sir Alan was given rewards of £231,000 in the past two years alone for project managing the development, on top of his basic salary. Dr Patel claimed Sir Alan deserved “every penny”.

The scale of the bonus culture emerged at a meeting on 29 April between Sir Alan and Brent’s chief investigator, Simon Lane. When pressed by Mr Lane Sir Alan “could not recall” why he had received one payment of £12,500 last year “and said he would have to check”.

He was not alone in receiving “substantial” extra payments. According to the auditor’s report, Sir Alan, his son Gareth, Dr Evans and Mr Udokoro shared £458,000 for project management relating to the new development between 2007 and 2009.

In addition Sir Alan, three deputy heads and a number of other staff, including his son, received “significant bonus payments in 2007-08 and earlier years”, the auditor found. These known bonus payments — which are bound to be a fraction of the total handed out — amount to a further £865,200.

The report said Sir Alan “could not explain” exactly why he received such bonuses, adding: “Either he or the chair (of governors) put down some ideas as to what they thought the staff should be paid. These were then checked with Dr Evans to see if they were affordable. Then the amounts were taken to the Pay Review Committee where they were approved.”

The council said there were “numerous additional payments of significant amounts” to senior staff and others at the school. Sir Alan insisted that Dr Patel had approved the payments in conjunction with the school’s pay committee, and that a budget for bonuses had been properly drawn up.

The investigators disagreed. The report said: “The council believes there to be no lawful and/or rational basis for the payment of these sums.”

The final area of concern raised by investigators was the apparently widespread nepotism. The headteacher’s son, son-in-law and sister were all employed. The wife and mother of the deputy head of finance were given jobs, along with the accountant’s brother, the son and daughter of the assistant accountant and the nephew’s wife of the chair of governors.

“In some cases salaries paid to these members of staff appear excessive,” the report said. “This tends to indicate that certain members of staff may not have been appointed on merit alone.”

Last week the borough’s director of children’s services John Christie invoked rarely used powers to suspend Sir Alan, Dr Evans and Mr Udokoro, and gave the governors three weeks to explain themselves or face the sack.

In a letter to governors, Mr Christie said: “Funds which should have been used for the proper purposes of the school have been spent on what appear to be unlawful and irrational payments to staff.” The school seems to have incurred a £1 million “financial liability to a development firm”, he said.

Teacher Hank Roberts, who exposed the payments last month, called for police to be brought in. Mr Roberts said he believed he had made enemies by his actions.

He was suspended by Sir Alan over an unrelated matter. The day after Sir Alan’s suspension, Mr Roberts was reinstated.

Brent council said its inquiry into the allegations against Copland was ongoing. Sir Alan was not available for comment last night. Mr Udokoro today said he was prevented from making any comment under the terms of his suspension, but last week rejected any suggestion of wrongdoing.

Dr Patel could not be reached last night but has defended the decision to award bonuses. Gareth Davies said today he was prevented from making any comments until the inquiry had been completed.

Philip O’Hear, Copland’s acting headteacher, said the school was “shocked” by what had happened.

The allegations

Sir Alan Davies, headteacher: suspended.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other payments of £631,500.

Dr Richard Evans, deputy head: suspended.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other extra payments of £341,000.

Columbus Udokoro, bursar: suspended.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other extra payments of £72,000.

Gareth Davies, maintenance staff: still working.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other payments of £38,000.

The council says there were many other payments.

Sir Alan Davies outside Copland with David Cameron

Both Sir Alan Davies and Dr Evans have been lauded for their work in the state education system with Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron all visiting their former school.

 

Dr Evans, 53, is a former education adviser to Mr Cameron and a former Westminster councillor who twice stood as a Tory candidate.

All three are accused of defrauding Copland community school in Wembley, North West London, following allegations that payments totalling at least £1.56million were made to Sir Alan and three of his managers over a period of seven years.

Mrs Evans, 50, has also been accused of selling at Sotheby’s around 15 paintings, worth many thousands, that had been given to the school by British artist Mary Fedden, who taught David Hockney.

Davies is also accused of one count of laundering £270,490 by transferring the sum from a NatWest bank account in England to a Spanish bank account in March 2008.

He is further charged with six counts of false accounting, said to have taken place between April 2007 and June 2009 – part of his alleged efforts to ‘cover up his activities’.

 

Head teacher Sir Alan Davies avoids jail over fraud

  • 3 October 2013

An “inspirational” head teacher has been given a suspended prison sentence after admitting false accounting.

Sir Alan Davies, 66, of Grants Close, the former head at Wembley’s Copland School, in north London, pleaded guilty to creating a false paper trail on bonus payments and allowances.

Davies, knighted for his services to education, resigned in 2009.

At Southwark Crown Court, Judge Deborah Taylor said: “Your dishonest behaviour represents a fall from grace.”

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-24383163

‘Honest payments’

It had been claimed that Davies paid himself, three staff members and two governors a total of £2.7m over several years through bonuses and salaries.

But charges of conspiracy to defraud against Davies and five others relating to that alleged plot were dropped.

Instead Davies pleaded guilty to six counts of false accounting after he admitted creating eight back-payment documents at the same time, for sums totalling £315,000.

Defending Davies, William Clegg QC, told the court he was an “inspirational” teacher and the offences needed to be taken in context.

He said: “This is not a case of documents being forged to permit payments to be made that were unlawful and not agreed or made dishonestly. The position is the opposite.

“The payments were honestly made and honestly received. This is not somebody seeking to obtain money he was not entitled to.”

‘Profound error’

Prosecutor John Black QC added there was no dishonesty in the making or receiving of the payments.

He said: “The dishonesty relates to false paper trails in order to legitimise these payments.

“The Crown say they [paperwork backing up payments] were all generated at the same time, after Sir Alan Davies had become aware of the impending or likely scrutiny, to give the impression the right procedure was being adhered to.”

A charge of money laundering against Davies was also dropped.

Following the case, Davies said: “In some instances I have felt that we were being tried by the media and there were a lot of misrepresentations made in the press, many of which were wholly unfounded.

“I do, however, have to accept that I did not have all the necessary paperwork in place and I made a profound error of judgment by backdating eight documents.”

In a statement, Brent Council, said: “The council will always act robustly and take action where allegations of financial irregularities have been made, to investigate and pursue legal action.

“In this case the guilty plea of false accounting vindicates the actions taken although we are disappointed the Crown Prosecution Service saw fit not to pursue the conspiracy to defraud.”

Ex-Copland School teacher Dr Richard Evans lands job at Mill Hill County High School

Dr Richard Evans
 16 Sep 2010

A MATHS teacher fired for “gross misconduct” from a Wembley school amid allegations of a £1.6m fraud is now teaching at a top Mill Hill school.

Arkley resident Dr Richard Evans lost his job at Copland Community School in November after allegations he pocketed £300,000 in bonuses in his role as deputy head in charge of finance.

Scotland Yard’s fraud squad has now launched an investigation into the financial dealings at the school.

However, in January, Dr Evans was taken on at Mill Hill County High School as a temporary member of staff and given a permanent position in April.

A statement from Geoffrey Thompson, the headmaster of the Worcester Crescent School, said Dr Evans had been appointed after a consultation with the General Teaching Council.

He added: “He was given a permanent position as a maths teacher in April. Dr Evans is a highly qualified maths teacher and has proved himself a popular and valued member of our school community.

“I do not believe there are any grounds for parental concern. There never has been any question about Dr Evans’s suitability to work with children.

“The circumstances which led to Dr Evans’s departure from his previous post had no connection whatsoever with his teaching. He has demonstrated he has been an excellent maths teacher during his time at Mill Hill County High School.”

An investigation by Brent Council into the dealings at Copland, which ended with four of the senior management team suspended, found evidence of “serious financial mismanagement” at the school.

Shane Johnschwager, a staff member at Copland School and Brent secretary for teacher’s union NASUWT was outraged by the appointment.

He told the Times Series: “Richard Evans will have to answer to his professional body and possibly to the courts.

“What will Geoffrey Thompson say to pupils and parents at Mill Hill County if he is struck off or charged with a criminal offence?

“Will he stake his reputation on this appointment? Mill Hill is a school with an excellent reputation. Is this the best Geoffrey Thompson can do in recruiting staff to the school – a disgraced and recently sacked teacher embroiled in Britain’s largest ever educational financial scandal?”

QUESTIONS:

  1. I’d like to ask Dr Evans why the other 15 paintings were sold at auction?
  2. Did he have proof they were his when he sold them through Sotheby’s?
  3. Were the proceeds given to the school or kept by Dr Evans?
  4. Why is this issue still ongoing EIGHT YEARS after it first emerged?
  5. Why have the three remaining paintings not been returned to the school by Brent Council?
  6. Did Keir Starmer involve himself in the legal process of the fraud case?
  7. Why were charges dropped against all other defendants despite an indepth and lengthy FOUR YEAR investigation?
  8. Is Dr Patel really the ideal choice to be a trustee of a charity despite admitting inappropriate payments at Copland School?
  9. Did Brent Council ever recover the £2.7m?
  10. Did any of them consider the knock-on effect this would have on the school and the children who found themselves under such a horrible cloud?

Did you know that each summer Keith Vaz holds an ‘Annual Tea Party’ in Westminster?

CLAUDIO RANIERI ATTENDS ANNUAL TEA PARTY AT THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

Leicester East MP Keith Vaz hosted his 29th annual tea party at the House of Commons on Saturday 9th July. His guest of honour this year was Leicester City Football Club Manager Claudio Ranieri and his wife Rosanna. LCFC Chief Executive Susan Whelan and her husband Robbie Gill also attended.

For the past 28 years Mr Vaz has been holding summer tea parties for all of his family, staff and special guests.

Saturday’s event was a celebration of Leicester City’s tremendous victory, and as well as getting to meet Leicester City’s manager, Mr Vaz and his guests got to see the Premier League Trophy.

Before the tea party Mr Ranieri, Ms Whelan and their families toured Number 10, with the permission of the Prime Minister.

The 85 party guests got to enjoy the sunshine on the House of Commons terrace, overlooking the River Thames with tea, sandwiches and cake. Guests could also help raise money for Silver Star, the diabetes charity Mr Vaz founded in 2007, by taking part in a raffle.

Prizes for the raffle included House of Commons whiskey and chocolate and a giant teddy bear.

Bercow, Vaz and Farter Cuck

 

Vaz appears to have engaged solicitors Carter Ruck in an effort to keep people quiet, according to Guido Fawkes, spreading “letters before action” around like confetti. HT   Government Watch [13]

guidoconfetti

I am not sure whether Bercow is using Carter Ruck as well or has employed another firm of solicitors, but this Times article is marked that it is subject to a legal complaint by Mr Bercow.

2017 Feb 11 Times Bercow blocked Vaz revelations after accepting poll donations [2] 

bercowlegal

The article revealed that Bercow had blocked revelations about Keith Vaz, and that Bercow had accepted many donations from friends of Vaz.

Telegraph Vaz Bercow Story Disappears:

Wonder why the Telegraph have pulled this story on John Bercow and Keith Vas?

KEITH VAZ sets lawyers on yet his wife says he needs tests and DID shag the rent boys.

the wife of KEITH VAZ says he needs tests cos he DID shag the rent boys

So just who IS telling the truth – Carter Ruck or Keith Vaz’s wife? It would be terrible if lawyers weren’t truthful in court.. under oath..

maybe someone should have another look at the FIFTEEN YEAR relationship KEITH VAZ had with this man

Petitions, Pinheads, Police and Vaz

On the excellent Aangirfan site, on an unrelated post, I came across this anonymous comment from November 2016 [1a]

It was about a petition to Keith Vaz’s Labour East constituency calling them to investigate the serious allegations against Keith Vaz.

vazpetition

Regular readers of this site will know that allegations that the Sun [2] printed were of child sexual abuse with boys.

sunvazAccording to the Sun the MP

  • had  lads “delivered” to his room at a hotel near a police station
  • abused boys at a hospital’s mental health unit
  • left one so terrified he fears for his life if he ever speaks out
  • showed an “unhealthy” interest in the two young sons of a local councillor
  • displayed a liking for “young ragamuffins”,
  • was seen as untouchable by police because of his revered
    position.

Guido Fawkes published that the MP was Keith Vaz [5]

fawkes

Why does Keith Vaz, often keen to “get the party started” not seem so keen to start the legal party against Guido Fawkes or the Sun on Sunday team?

The parliamentary commissioner is still conducting an investigation into whether Vaz has broken Section 10 of the Code of Conduct for MPs.

It is not known whether the conflict of interest being investigated by the parliamentary commissioner is the possible breaking of the Code of Conduct of MPs

  • with sex, drugs and washing machine allegations
  • the conflict of a police investigation into child sexual abuse allegations and his role on committees [5]

It is not known whether all police investigations into Keith Vaz have finished, but the sex, drugs and washing machine ones have finished, with no action taken.

However, the point of this post is that the petition has disappeared. From the comment, the petition text appeared to be –

“The Leicester East Constituency Labour Party must make enquiries into the serious allegations by the MP for Leicester East, Keith Vaz. Your enquiries should principally involve talking to the Sun on Sunday Journalists David Wooding and Michael Hamilton and Sun on Sunday Columnist Paul Staines to find out what their evidence is.”

It is not known whether this was the full text of the petition.

If you click the link [4] It says “This petition isn’t available. Either the URL is incorrect, it violated our Community Guidelines, or the starter removed it.”

Yet it seems such a reasonable, innocuous petition so why would it violate any guidelines or why would the originator take it down?

Does anyone know –

  • What was the full text of the petition?
  • What happened to it?
  • Who started it?
  • Why it was taken down?
  • When it was taken down?
  • Who took it down?
  • Have Leicester East Labour Party investigated the serious allegations?

One thing is for sure the people of Leicestershire and Labour in Leicestershire, who also had Janner, child sexual abuser as an MP must be getting fed up of this bad publicity.

Hopefully they are doing something about it and start asking Vaz a few questions.

Meanwhile, since this article was under construction, Vaz has set the record straight through his solicitors about some of his time selling washing machines.

In the last 24 hours,the Order Order website has published an article about Carter Ruck, expensive solicitors, who say their client, Keith Vaz

  • has never paid “rent boys for sex”
  • never had “sex” with “rent boys”.
  • there was never a police investigation in relation to this

One has to wonder if their client is the same Keith Vaz??

Carter Ruck are of course paid handsomely for dancing on pinheads.

..and Tesco must be wondering why Keith Vaz had to pose for a picture near their store or have they started a line in industrial washing machines?

vazrentboysue2vazrentboysue

  • I wonder what Vaz’s defence actually is?
  • I wonder how Carter Ruck know for sure that their client has never paid “rent boys for sex” or “sex” with “rent boys”? (It conjures up the mental image of one of Carter Rucks flunkies accompanying Vaz/Jim on his nocturnal visits and checking whether the people concerned can be excluded from the definition of  “rent boy”. ID card please! )
  • I wonder if the fact that Carter Ruck say he has not paid for or had sex with rent boys is enough plausible deniability and bluster to appear to be a denial from Vaz whilst actually being from a third party. This would scare a few people off commenting, and maybe enough enough to come to a quid pro quo with the Mail, which has the appearance of a denial. When solicitors make these threats, it is very rare for one to actually sign the letter and be responsible for that threat.

The  Mail article is mostly about Vaz’s gatekeeper chum John Bercow accepting freebies – 2017 Feb 8 Mail Andrew Pierce [9] Chauffeur-driven cars, taxpayer-funded suits and hospitality at the tennis and Arsenal matches: How the king of freebies John Bercow splashes your cash

The last paragraph however mentioned Vaz.

vazrentboymailThe article published on the 8th Feb, does say it has been updated on 13th Feb. This however appears to be unrelated to the Carter Ruck threat, as the only sentence that has changed on this paragraph from a print edition copy, is the removal of “The charity gave £2,500 to Bercow’s Speaker’s election campaign in 2010” with reference to the Silver Star diabetes charity.

Whatever the truth the original articles are here Mirror Married MP Keith Vaz tells prostitutes in his flat: ‘Bring poppers’ … ‘We need to get this party started’ [12] 

mirror-vazSo game on between Vaz and the Daily Mail or will they come to some agreement out of mutual self interest?

Interestingly on the Carter Ruck website, the rolling self congratulatory advert attributes these comments to the Mail “Top London Law Firm” and “Famously Combative”.  We shall see.

I cannot see Jim washing his very dirty laundry in public.

But who will blink first Lord Rothermere or Carter Ruck?

Taylor, son of the MAYOR was MATES with Nigel Philpott-Jones + was NOT suprised allegs of rent boys came out re KEITH VAZ 2016

Speaker accused of pulling punches on Keith Vaz probe

The Speaker last night denied blocking an attempt to tell Parliament about police investigations into Keith Vaz because he had received thousands from donors linked to the MP.

Records show that £41,000 of the £58,000 raised for John Bercow’s last two general election campaigns came from people with connections to Mr Vaz.

Yesterday Mr Bercow insisted he had handled all matters involving Mr Vaz in line with parliamentary rules and strongly refuted any suggestion he had unfairly favoured the Leicester East MP.

IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE ME? Bercow was presented with a wooden bust of himself by former Labour councillor Neeraj Patil, a businessman with links to Keith Vaz in 2015. But the figure’s likeness to the Speaker is rather questionable

Narinder Singh Chadha, the former chairman of Mr Vaz’s diabetes charity Silver Star, told The Times he gave £2,501 to Mr Bercow’s 2010 election campaign after Mr Vaz asked for the donation.

Other donations to Mr Bercow included £5,000 from the London College of Accountancy, which also gives money to Mr Vaz, and £2,500 from the late Lord Noon, a Labour donor whose Commons memorial tribute was hosted by Mr Vaz.

Mr Bercow received £7,500 from Sun Mark, a food company founded by Mr Vaz’s friend Rami Ranger, and £5,000 from Madhu’s, a restaurant chain run by Sanjay and Sanjeev Anand, friends of both Mr Vaz and Mr Bercow.

Neeraj Patil, a Labour councillor and associate of Mr Vaz, donated £2,500 through his business Dreamsland. He also gave Mr Bercow a wooden bust of himself.

All donations were declared by Mr Bercow and within the rules.

But Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said last night the connections raised questions about Mr Bercow’s handling of allegations involving Mr Vaz.

In September 2015, Mr Bridgen wrote to Mr Bercow requesting he contact police to ask about inquiries they were making into Mr Vaz and whether they conflicted with his position at the time as chairman of the home affairs select committee, but he said this was not part of his role.

After Mr Vaz stepped down from the role because of a rent boy scandal, Mr Bridgen tried to raise the matter of a separate police investigation involving the MP in the Commons in October last year as Mr Vaz was standing to join the justice select committee.

Mr Bercow interrupted him and said he should limit his remarks to information in the public domain.

A spokesman for Mr Bercow said last night he had at all times acted ‘to uphold the rules and conventions of the House of Commons’.

She added: ‘As a matter of parliamentary practice and procedure, a member is not given the floor to speak as a means of making a personal attack on the conduct of another member.

‘Mr Bridgen stated at the outset that he would try to limit his remarks to matters in the public domain. The Speaker permitted him to do so on matters of public record and stopped him when he sought to embark on other allegations, and again when he sought to reveal the contents of confidential correspondence with the Speaker.’

On the September 2015 request for Mr Bercow to speak to police, she said: ‘A select committee itself has the power to declare no confidence in its chair but the Speaker has precisely none.’

Regarding Mr Chadha’s suggestion that Mr Vaz had asked him to donate money to Mr Bercow, she said: ‘Whatever contacts eligible donors have with other Members of Parliament are a matter for them.’

Mr Vaz denied he had solicited donations for Mr Bercow and said Mr Chadha had been ‘misquoted and misrepresented’. He noted Sun Mark also gave £25,000 to Theresa May’s leadership campaign.

He added: ‘The British Asian community should not be criticised for making lawful political donations to political parties and individual MPs of their choice.’


I’ll just leave this here for you to chew over….

Sounds like Silver Star is not much more than Jim’s industrial-scale money-laundering washing machine!

You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours!

Does Bercow share Vaz’s pastimes?


John Bercow ‘stopped Tory MP from informing the Commons about Keith Vaz police probe after accepting donations’

  • Claims speaker refused to tell Mr Vaz to step down after warning from Tory MP he was being investigated for alleged abuse of public office in September 2015
  • Also stopped Tory MP informing Commons about investigation, report says 
  • Speaker’s office said of the donations: ‘There was no impropriety of any sort’
  • A spokesman for Mr Vaz called allegations made in a newspaper article ‘wrong’  

John Bercow stopped a Tory MP telling the Commons about a police probe into Keith Vaz after receiving tens of thousands of pounds worth of donations from his alleged associates, according to newspaper report.

Donations to help the Speaker keep his parliamentary seat reportedly included a sum from Narinder Chadha – chair of the management board of Mr Vaz’s Silver Star charity.

However a spokesperson for Mr Vaz told MailOnline the newspaper’s story was ‘wrong’ and that Mr Chadha denies having spoken ‘this year’ to The Times.

The newspaper reported an alleged conversation with Mr Chada in which he is said to have confirmed that he gave the money after a request from the MP for Leicester East.

Mr Vaz’s representatives deny this saying that Mr Chada will be complaining to IPSO over the Times article.

In total, the Speaker accepted £41,000 from donors thought to be linked to Mr Vaz, according to the newspaper.

The Times claimed Mr Bercow refused to tell Mr Vaz to resign as chair of the Home Affairs select committee after Tory MP Andrew Bridgen privately warned him the Labour MP was being investigated by police – an investigation Mr Vaz later said he knew nothing of in September 2015.

The Speaker later interrupted Mr Bridgen when he attempted to talk about the allegation in the Commons, according to The Times.

A spokesperson for the Speaker told the MailOnline that ‘a personally defamatory attack on another Member[ was not allowed] on the floor. The Speaker allowed….[Mr Bridger to speak] on matters of public record, and stopped him when he sought to embark on other allegations, and again when he sought to reveal the contents of confidential correspondence with the Speaker.’

Mr Vaz did eventually step down as chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee last year after he was caught meeting two male prostitutes.

This scandal was said to be unrelated to the police investigation in 2015.

A spokesman for Mr Bercow said the role of Speaker did not give him the right to tell an elected member of a select committee to step down.

Mr Vaz’s representatives said Mr Chadha had not spoken to The Times and called the claims in its article ‘wrong’.

All the other people who gave money to Mr Bercow told The Times they had not been told to do so by Mr Vaz.

Donations to help the Speaker keep his parliamentary seat included a payout from Narinder Chadha – chair of the management board of Mr Vaz’s (pictured) Silver Star charity

They also denied the donors listed by The Times were ‘associates’ of the Labour MP or they donated to Mr Bercow because he told them to do so.

There is no suggestion in The Times investigation Mr Bercow or Mr Vaz broke any rules.

Mr Vaz now sits on the Justice Committee, which oversees the director of public prosecutions.

After his appointment on October 1, 2016, Mr Bridgen spoke in the Commons to claim police were investigating claims Mr Vaz could have ‘abused his position in public office’.

The Speaker interrupted the Tory MP twice, saying he was discussing information that was not in the public domain.

A spokesman from the Speaker told MailOnline: ‘All of the donations to the Speaker Seeking Re-Election campaign were from eligible donors, and are a matter of longstanding public record.

‘There was absolutely no impropriety of any sort before or after any donation from any individual was accepted.

‘To suggest that this is not the case would not only be a wholly unfair impaction it would be, and is, demonstrably unproved and, more importantly completely and utterly untrue.’

Referring to Mr Bridgen’s speech, the representative said Mr Bercow had allowed him to speak on ‘matters of public record’.

But she added: ‘The Speaker topped him when he sought to embark on other allegations, and again when he sought to reveal the contents of confidential correspondence with the Speaker as per the longstanding rules.’

The spokesman also said Mr Bercow was not allowed to publish correspondence on a sensitive matter between him and another MP.

Mr Vaz said: ‘The British Asian community should not be criticised for making lawful political donations to political parties or to individual MPs. They are entitled to make their own decisions.

‘I am not surprised that they choose to donate to people like Speaker Bercow or Theresa May who are greatly admired by the community for their commitment to equality and diversity.

‘In the 30 years I have been in Parliament I have observed that the British Asian community have moved from just supporting the Labour Party to supporting other political parties.

‘This is a sign of the diversity of our country and the strength and confidence of the community. Long may it continue.’


 

Three Times Articles on Bercow and Vaz 11 Feb 2017

Here are three articles from the Times which illustrate the dubious nature of the double act Bercow and Vaz or is it Vaz and Bercow?

It exposes amongst other things that the Bercow had much donated to him from chums of Dodgy Vaz. [but not so far any industrial washing machines :)]

This of course adds to my own post on their Right Dodgynesses and FOI Requests, Bercow and Vaz Personal / Private Conflicts of Interest  [4], where there is information on how to make a complaint.

Bercow ‘blocked MP from revealing investigation into Keith Vaz after accepting donations’

JOHN Bercow blocked warnings of police investigations into shamed Labour MP Keith Vaz after receiving tens of thousands of pounds from donors allegedly linked to the politician, according to reports.

Feb 11, 2017

The donations included one payout from Narinder Chadha – the Chairman of the management board of Mr Vaz’s Silver Star Charity.

Mr Chadha has since admitted he made the donation after a recommendation from Mr Vaz.

Mr Vaz was forced to resign as chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee after it was revealed he was involved in a sex party with two male prostitutes.

According to a Freedom of Information request by The Times, the Speaker amassed £41,000 from donors with links to Mr Vaz

 The Times investigation claims Mr Bercow did not ask Mr Vaz to step down from his prestigious place on the Home Affairs Committee after MP Andrew Bridgen privately alerted him to allegations being made police.
The paper claimed the Speaker later called on Mr Bridgen to sit down as he attempted to talk about the allegations – which related to alleged abuse of Mr Vaz’s position in office and had no relation to his sex scandal last year.Mr Vaz currently sits on the Justice Committee, who oversee the director of public prosecutions.
After the Labour MP was appointment to the committee, Mr Bridgen made a speech to the Commons claiming police were investigating allegations Mr Vaz might have “abused his position in public office”.But Mr Bercow, who was not obliged to act on the allegations, interrupted the concerned MP twice – claiming he was attempting to speak about events that were not publicly known.Mr Bercow told The Times all of the donors were personal acquaintances who he had met on a variety of different occasions.Mr Vaz said members of the Asian community financially supported MPs, including Mr Bercow, due to admiration for their commitment to diversity.

A spokesperson for Mr Bercow’s offices said: “The Speaker’s seven years’ experience in office and his professional adviser’s 40 years’ experience carry rather greater weight than the implication that the Speaker’s Office should operate in the manner of an episode of Diagnosis Murder — keeping order in the chamber by day and investigating alleged crimes by night.“Although this is a pitch I may well make at some stage if I decide to go into the writing of daytime drama, the reality is that this is not how the role of the Speaker works.“To be clear: the Speaker implements standing orders and chairs proceedings in the chamber – freestyling as Columbo at the request of a member on the basis of an unsubstantiated allegation is not part of the Speaker’s job description.”http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/765991/John-Bercow-Keith-Vaz-Andrew-Bridgen-police-investigation-donations-select-committee

What Has The Sun Got On Keith Vaz?

The art of tabloid news, as Zelo Street regulars will know by now, consists not only of getting some stories out there, but preventing others from doing the same. Hence anything that assists the attacks on politicians of inconvenient view, judges making decisions that their proprietors don’t like, and Slebs who exercise their right to speak freely gets out there, while anything on the likes of John Whittingdale most certainly does not.
Keith Vaz


So it was that the Tabs knew all about Whitto and his relationships with a number of known sex workers, but published nothing – not until Byline Media, with Zelo Street in the vanguard, had put the story out there. So it also seems to be with Labour MP Keith Vaz, about whom sources independent of one another have recently voiced concern, but who is still in post as MP for Leicester East, and still chairing a Commons committee.

Accusations: Natalie Rowe


This state of affairs has not pleased Natalie Rowe, former purveyor of strict disciplinary measures to the Rt Hon Gideon George Oliver Osborne, heir to the Seventeenth Baronet. After the Mirror stung Vaz in true red-top fashion paying rent boys for sex, she hinted very firmly that the MP could look forward to rather more dirt being dished in the very near future. But thus far there has been much indignation, and little revelation.

Heavyweight opinion: The Great Guido


After Vaz got himself onto that Commons committee, Ms Rowe voiced her concern on Twitter – in Tweets which are still live. “So when #Vaz intervened when Leicester City Council tried to evict a tenant suspected of running a male brothel, things become clearer” she began last November, adding soon afterwards “I personally have seen #Vaz come out of a known brothel”. And there was more.

Only two weeks ago she asserted “So EVERYONE is aware, I gave ALL details that I knew via a source regarding #KeithVaz, that he was a Landlord of a brothel in Earls Court … @TheSun had Vaz Male – Escorts Years before ON Video, I Asked why they didn’t run: Said there wasn’t enough evidence … The Sun was more pissed off that their golden boy Vaz had been exposed & that Mirror had the SCOOP of the YEAR”.
There are two significant claims there: that Vaz is alleged to have been the landlord of a brothel in Earl’s Court, and that the Sun has significant dirt on the MP that it has declined thus far to publish. So far, so interesting, but the accusations of improper behaviour are also coming from the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog. Staines is often wayward on facts, but his claims are still live as I type.
This was the Fawkes take: “Keith Vaz was under police investigation over year ago on suspicion of financial corruption and historic allegations of under-age sex. Speaker Bercow was informed of this and fellow MPs demanded – Andrew Bridgen in writing – that he step down from his position on the Home Affair Select Committee”. Vaz has since threatened legal action against Bridgen. And then comes the really damning claim.
It is widely known around Westminster that Vaz – who owes his career to Greville Janner – was the unidentified MP in this Sun front page from last year … Vaz offering to buy cocaine for rent boys is at the mild end of Vaz’s sleazy life and times”. The Sunday Sun front page simply saidCOPS TOLD: TOP LABOUR MP IS PAEDO”. The story is still live.
These are two sources who are independent of one another. Both are effectively saying the same thing: there is a lot yet to be revealed about Keith Vaz, and if and when it comes out, it will be of a career-terminating nature.
The Fawkes folks have not added to their claims for a while: the thought enters that The Great Guido, being an establishment sell-out, has been advised to keep the MP on the back burner. Ms Rowe suffers from no such restriction.
In the days when the deeply unsavoury Kelvin McFilth was editing the paper, the standing joke was that he had a large safe full of dirt on the good and the great which could be used to keep them in line. Now the name of Keith Vaz has been pitched – and by two very different sources – as someone on whom the Murdoch mafiosi have dirt.
So the question has to be put: what dirt has the Sun got on Keith Vaz, and, more importantly, what’s preventing them from dishing it? We’re waiting.

And you’re telling me Bercow wasn’t aware of police investigation against Vaz and isn’t abusing his position to protect him



https://twitter.com/CathyCathyFox

Under the Freedom of Information Act I applied to the House of Commons, for the letter, redacted if necessary, that Andrew Bridgen MP sent to speaker John Bercow [1]

berocw-vaz-2

The letter applied for is thought to have been sent to warn the House of Commons of possible vile criminal activities involving Keith Vaz and that they were being investigated by the police.

These allegations and the conflict of interest by Vaz (being investigated for criminal activities whilst on a powerful justice committee) it seems were not passed on by Bercow to anyone. This enabled Vaz, having resigned, from the Home Office Public Affairs Committee to swiftly join the Justice Committee. (To be clear, this is fact not irony).

The person who eventually refused to provide that information under the FOI Act, was none other than …….John Bercow!

The circling of the wagons or the arrogance of power?

Keith Vaz offers to put up bail for jailed Leicester footballers – jailed on rape charges

6 March 2004

Keith Vaz, the MP for Leicester East and a former government minister, yesterday offered to act as a guarantor for the release on bail of three Leicester City footballers held this weekend in a Spanish jail on rape charges.

Mr Vaz, a season ticket holder, said yesterday that the players were internationally known and could not disappear, so should be granted bail.

I will be happy to act as a guarantor,” he said.

Disgraced Keith Vaz lobbies bank boss over friend’s £11million debt despite Commons guidelines

The MP’s staff had previously told Mr Vaz’s friend that he was unable to get involved as he was not the constituency MP

19 NOV 2016

Keith Vaz ignored Commons guidelines to intervene on behalf of a friend who did not live in his constituency.

Yet Vaz ’s staff had previously told a business partner locked in a bitter dispute with the friend that he was unable to get involved as he was not that man’s MP.

On Commons paper, the then-Home Affairs Committee chair asked Royal Bank of ­Scotland boss Stephen Hester to look into an £11million debt owed by the partnership – which also has an address outside the constituency – but the dispute was none of his ­committee’s business either.

He should instead have been referred to his own MP – a protocol Vaz’s staff appeared well aware of when the friend’s estranged brother, Jack Kotak, himself pleaded for assistance.ang

Jack wrote to Vaz asking for help with RBS on December 20, 2012, but was told by a caseworker the MP could not assist.

An email sent to Jack from Vaz’s office said that because MPs are governed by “very strict ­guidelines and parliamentary etiquette” he would need to see his own MP.

The caseworker suggested Jack contact his own MP, Alan Duncan.

But on January 31, 2013, six weeks after turning down Jack, Vaz penned the letter to RBS chief executive Mr Hester (above).

Don Kotek, Shilpa Shetty, and Keith Vaz

Within seven days Vaz’s friend, Midlands businessman Don Kotak, was granted a meeting with senior RBS staff in a bid to resolve the long-running dispute.

But Mr Kotak does not live in Vaz’s Leicester East seat – and guidelines issued to all MPs and recorded in the House of Commons library indicate Vaz should not have taken the case.

Vaz said yesterday: “This case relates to a business within my constituency, Sabras Radio, which serves the wider community in the Midlands.

“Don Kotak approached me to help in his capacity as a director of Sabras.

Since Keith Vaz’s appointment to the Criminal Finance Bill committee this week, it has sat twice, on Tuesday and today. For some reason – to the great disappointment of hacks – Vaz has absented himself from both sessions. Guido can give readers some background as to why that might be…

Guido understands Labour whips have been told that not only is Vaz now under investigation by Scotland Yard, they have been made aware that four files regarding Vaz have been passed to the National Crime Agency. Given that the Bill committee have been taking evidence from the National Crime Agency it would clearly be completely inappropriate for Vaz to attend this committee. If Vaz had attended he would either have to recuse himself or declare his interest. Rather than face the embarrassment, slippery Vaz has unofficially recused himself by not showing up…

BBC Reports Keith Vaz Booed in Leicester

Nov 14 2016

Usually the attention-grabbing Keith Vaz is cheered by constituents when he takes to the stage at the annual Diwali light switch-on in Leicester. This year he skulked at the back and was booed by the home crowd. Vaz is clinging to his position on the Justice select committee despite potentially breaking a law he helped draft. He retains the Labour whip and still sits on the party’s NEC despite consorting with prostitutes and trying his hand at procuring drug deals. Corbyn has defended Vaz – who is the subject of a police investigation – claiming it is a “private matter”. 

Compare this to the treatment of Simon Danczuk, a single man who sexted a woman but didn’t meet her let alone break any laws, and was immediately suspended by Labour. At the time Corbyn told the press: He was suspended this morning because of recent revelations. His conduct will now be investigated”. This is a glaring double standard – the only real reason action has been taken against Danczuk but not Vaz is their differing attitudes to the leader.

As Tory MP Edward Garnier told the Leicester Mercury today: 

“This is the justice select committee – it is not the drawing pins committee or the paperclips committee. It is not appropriate for an MP under investigation by the police to be on the committee.”

Over the years, Patti has worked for charities and served on the committees of eight British charities and she has been a patron of five, including Eastside Educational Trust, Barnardo’s, SOS and Women Into Business.

She is also on the Advisory Board of The Iman-Foundation Worldwide, which promotes dialogue and challenges extremism to bring about change. Patti is a Patron of The Commonwealth Resound as well as The British Monarchist Society.

During a visit to Africa and by another twist of fate, Patti was introduced to 60 babies who were saved from being buried alive because they were HIV positive. On her return to England Patti was determined to do something about the affect and stigma of HIV on the lives of African villagers. She formed a charity Support For Africa and asked the Rt. Hon Sir John Major KG CH and other prominent persons to be Patrons, all of whom agreed and her charity has built 5 clinics in Africa and helped to build a School in Lesotho with Prince Harry’s Charity Sentebale. Patti hired the Royal Albert Hall for a charity event, which she presented and organised. This was the first of her sell-out “Reaching Out For Africa” events, which she co-produced with Major Sir Michael Parker KCVO CBE at the Royal Albert Hall, starring Sir Cliff Richard, Gabrielle, Uri Geller, Patti herself and BONEY M, amongst others and featured 3,000 Gospel singers whom Patti put together herself.

The event was supported by The Rt. Hon Michael Portillo, Frederick Forsyth CBE, The Rt. Hon Iain Duncan Smith, The Rt. Hon Paul Boateng, The Rt. Hon. Lord Greville Janner QC and the new Miss World. Patti’s second sell out Royal Albert Hall charity event was Football Reaching Out For Africa (FROFA) and starred, among others, footballer Didier Drogba of Chelsea FC, Simon Callow, Boney M, Christopher Biggins, Greg Dyke, David James and The Rt. Hon. Charles Kennedy. Patti also produced ‘Scotland Reaching Out For Africa’ supported by Lord McConnell the then First Minister and Alex Salmond the current First Minister, Football manager Alex McLeish, Leo Sayer, Mazie Willams and Boney M.

Shamed MP Keith Vaz

Disgraced Keith Vaz is at the centre of a police investigation over drug allegations.

It came after a review into claims the Labour MP discussed cocaine with male escorts at sex parties.

Scotland Yard said: “Following that assessment, which included obtaining early investigative advice from the Crown Prosecution Service, the MPS is now ­investigating offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.”

The Met launched the probe on Thursday. It said yesterday a specialist team had been involved in a month-long examination of the drug claims.

Vaz stood down as Home Affairs Committee chairman in September after the Sunday Mirror revealed he paid two men for sex at his London flat on August 27 – as his panel examined laws on prostitution.

List of MPs who voted for Vaz – including 159 Tories on the instructions of the Tory whips

Perhaps the Tories will put Vaz in charge of their toothless floundering child abuse inquiry while they’re at it.

Why did Tory whips herd their sheep through the Aye lobby during the Vaz vote last night? What are they afraid of?

I can only assume that the Tory whips know what Vaz knows about Brittan, Morrison, Proctor…

it’s very telling that this Labour MP has so much Conservative support. Is he a keeper of their dirty secrets?

His huge influence in May’s inner circle is reflected in the fact he is the only Cabinet Minister to attend her daily morning meeting at No 10 with her inner circle of advisers.

The Keith Vaz Westminster fan club: Why do they protect this man

Andrew Bridgen, Conservative MP for Leicestershire North West, moved a rare motion objecting to the appointment of :Labour MP, Keith Vaz, to the Commons Justice select committee.

During his speech, Mr Bridgen told the Speaker Mr Bercow: “You have often spoken that this place must reflect the society with which we make the laws and I agree with you.

“I respectfully point out to the House that in any other sphere of activity a candidate with so much hanging unresolved over him would be very unlikely to be considered for such an important office.

Earlier, Bridgen had been warned by Mr Bercow to ” desist” after he also referred -under Parliamentary privilege- to a current historical child sex investigation said to be being conducted by Leicestershire Police where four people had come forward alleging child sexual abuse crimes.

Instead of lecturing on what he cannot say, Mr Speaker should have recused himself, given his close friendship with Vaz!

Pompous pipsqueak Bercow rose to his feet to warn Bridgen to ‘desist’ from speaking, since the allegations about Leicestershire Police were not in the public domain.

He prevented Bridgen from using Parliamentary privilege to reveal more details about the police inquiry.

Bercow opened the London office of the Silver Star diabetes charity set up by Vaz in 2007. The charity also gave £2,500 to Bercow’s election campaign in 2010.

The pair share a love of curry, and have been photographed together sitting side by side accepting hospitality at a Premier League football match.

After Vaz spoke in the House following his fall from grace over the rent boy scandal, Bercow gave Vaz a reassuring pat on the back in the Commons chamber.

How fortunate for the beleaguered Vazeline that he has friends he can rely on in times of trouble.

Image result for VAZ AND BERCOW SILVER STAR

It was the Tory Cabinet that stood out in support of him. They included Amber Rudd, the home secretary, who decided that there has been no ” miscarriage of justice in Orgreave” and was obviously happy to think that Mr Vaz had committed no offence.

Other key supporters included Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, Liam Fox, the International Secretary; James Brokenshire, the Northern Ireland Secretary and  former home office minister: David Gauke, chief secretary to the Treasury;Andrea Leadsom, the environment secretary,and Karen Bradley, the culture secretary, who is advised by Craig Woodhouse, a former Sun journalist and David Lidington, leader of the House.

From the debate:

Also on 5 September, I wrote to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards with regard to the right hon. Gentleman. An investigation was instigated and then immediately suspended, as is the procedure, pending the results of the police assessment. Should Scotland Yard decide in due course not to investigate the said Member with regards to potential criminal activity, the parliamentary standards investigation will commence immediately.

It is fair to say that the right hon. Member for Leicester East has quite a history regarding parliamentary standards. He was subject to extensive inquiries by Elizabeth Filkin, the then commissioner, into allegations of misconduct in 2001 and 2002. He was suspended from the House for one month in 2002 for breaches of the MPs’ code of conduct.

Further to my letter to the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis, in which I urged Scotland Yard to liaise with Leicestershire police, it has been stated that four witnesses have confirmed that they were recently interviewed by Leicestershire police and that their inquiries have been going on for at least a year. Those inquiries concern allegations that the right hon. Member for Leicester East abused his position in public office—

.. why did Watson and Danczuk, two CSA campaigners, give an alleged paedophile a leg-up?

Why did Amber Rudd, ultimately in charge of , vote this man onto Justice Committee?

  • Vaz was disgraced over a sex and drugs scandal with two male prostitutes
  • Detectives may still investigate claims he offered to buy the men cocaine

In an extraordinary move, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox joined seven other Cabinet ministers in helping to install Mr Vaz in the influential role just weeks after he was embroiled in a sex and drugs scandal.

Only 38 Labour MPs were among the 42 other MPs who supported him

Return of Keith Vaz: Stitch up? Closing ranks?

Why MPs failed to block the appointment of “disgraced” Keith Vaz to the Justice Select Committee.

Close inspection of the division list reveals the Government’s “payroll vote” – ministers and their parliamentary aides – turned out in force to support Mr Vaz.

In fact, a breakdown of the voting suggests that more than 150 Conservative MPs backed Mr Vaz compared to just 38 Labour MPs, plus the suspended Simon Danczuk.

But why? A move to prevent a potentially dangerous precedent? The cosy MPs’ club closing ranks? An establishment stitch-up? Probably all three.

Monday’s debate on Mr Bridgen’s objection lasted only about a quarter of an hour.

But it was a bad tempered affair. Hansard records that the Speaker, John Bercow, intervened no fewer than seven times.

For the record, the Cabinet ministers backing Mr Vaz were: Karen Bradley, James Brokenshire, David Davis, Liam Fox, David Gauke, Damian Green, Jeremy Hunt, Andrea Leadsom. David Lidington, Amber Rudd and Chief Whip – yes, the Government Chief Whip – Gavin Williamson. His deputy, Anne Milton, joined them too. Government whip David Evenett was a teller for the Ayes

On the Labour side, Chief Whip Nick Brown, deputy leader Tom Watson, arch-tribalist John Spellar, veteran Barry Sheerman and Mr Vaz’s fellow Leicester MP Jonathan Ashworth were among his backers.

Besides Mr Bridgen, the MPs voting against Mr Vaz’s appointment were Jake Berry, James Duddridge, Philip Hollobone, Scott Mann and Matthew Offord, tellers Kark McCartney and Nigel Mills and – perhaps surprisingly – Sir Nicholas Soames.

Soames? Now if ever an MP belonged in the establishment lobby it would be Winston Churchill’s grandson, surely?

  • Remarkable move comes despite on-going police investigation into claims he paid for rent boys and offered to buy them drugs
  • Tory MP Andrew Bridgen condemns his latest move, saying: ‘Keith Vaz’s guile knows no bounds’

Vaz would have needed fellow Labour MPs to nominate him to the role, showing he still enjoys support in the party despite his fall from grace.

In addition to a possible investigation by police, Mr Vaz will also be the subject of a probe by Parliament’s sleaze watchdog

Parliamentary Standards Commissioner Kathryn Hudson announced she will conduct an official  investigation into Mr Vaz’s conduct and determine whether he breached MP rules.

His committee had conducted investigations into drug use and prostitution.

Police probe Vaz misconduct claims

11 Sept 2016

Senior MP accused of child sex abuse: Two MPs report same serving Labour politician to police over sex attacks and corruption claims

  • Labour MP John Mann one of the informants to pass information to police 
  • A fortnight ago a Conservative MP told police about the same politician 
  • Unnamed MP is accused of offering political favours to a brothel owner
  • Also claimed they were arrested for indecency in public place with a minor 

A senior Labour MP has been reported to police by two fellow MPs over claims of child sex abuse, The Mail on Sunday has learned.

One of the informants, Labour MP John Mann, passed details about the prominent individual to officers earlier this year.

Then, a fortnight ago, a Conservative MP went to the same police force armed with information about the same individual, some of which had been provided to him by a former Government Minister.

It is believed to be the first time that a sitting MP has been scrutinised by any of the ongoing police investigations into child abuse, representing a further extension of the ever-widening sphere of historic sex allegations.

Mr Mann handed his information over to an ongoing criminal investigation into another public figure, which included links between that figure and the Labour MP.

The Conservative MP’s allegations about the MP, which date back to the late 1980s, include claims that the MP had been arrested for indecency in a public place with a minor – during which he is said to have assaulted the arresting officers.

It is claimed the MP had performed political favours for the owner of a brothel in his constituency in which men consorted with underage males.

The Conservative MP also made further allegations about drink-driving, assault and corruption involving the Labour MP.

A BBC News team, headed by a journalist who specialises in reporting on sex abuse crimes, is also understood to have had access to the information. The team, which has been granted significant resources by bosses, has already started interviewing potential witnesses about the MP. Director-general Tony Hall has been made aware of the special project.

John Bercow:

Sarah Westcott, a young journalist at the Press Association, went out with John Bercow a few times in 2000. He was nearly 40 at the time, yet seemed more like a clumsy schoolboy than a middle-aged MP.

‘He was a bit funny with women. One night, I kissed him on the cheek and he was terrified.’

The lack of a girlfriend was becoming a curse, as local associations tended to look favourably on those who were married or at least had a respectable girlfriend to help with fund-raising coffee mornings.

Not wanting to lose out, Bercow came up with a solution: he borrowed other people’s girlfriends or co-opted friends to take along to selection meetings.

One friend was so confused by the fake girlfriends that, to this day, he believes Bercow is gay.

(21.10.15) “The files that are there, I know are valuable to their ongoing investigation.”

what did Op Midland do?

John Mann said that the file was handed to him by the same individual who had provided it to Mr Dickens in the 1980s, after it was compiled by former Tory MPs Sir Victor Raikes and Anthony Courtney – both now dead.

“There were two files that Geoffrey Dickens gave to Leon Brittan in 1984, this is the second file and the person who gave it to Geoffrey Dickens has now given a copy to me,” Mr Mann said.

“Two questions now arise. Firstly, why were the contents of the file not investigated? Secondly, why was the Prime Minister unable to find this file when he instigated the Wanless Review last year?

Mr Mann said the dossier included a list of alleged paedophiles, including “a small number of names which would be recognised by people who follow politics”, but declined to reveal the identities of those named.

“There are also background documents which will be of interest to police now and would have been of interest to police at the time,” he said.

Mr Mann said that he was “confident” that the dossier was genuine and that the person who passed it to him was the same individual who provided it to Mr Dickens and would be willing to speak to police now.

“The files that are there, I know are valuable to their ongoing investigation,” he said. “It may lead to new investigations as well. I would be surprised if it didn’t, but that is a decision for them to make, not me.”

INTELLIGENCE IN RECENT PUBLIC LITERATURE

SAILOR IN A RUSSIAN FRAME. By Cdr. Anthony Courtney. (London: Johnson. 1968. 256 pp. 35s.)

“I’m not a Profumo, but …” was the title on the illustrated handbill, with photos to match, which was sent to the British press and the wife and political friends and enemies of retired Royal Navy Commander Anthony Courtney, Conservative Member of Parliament for Harrow East, in August of 1965. Before a year had passed, Courtney had lost his wife, his seat, and most of his business as a result of a KGB political action operation in the heart of London. His book is the story of why the Soviets “framed” him and how he fought back, and almost won. The episode vividly exemplifies how the Soviets employ assiduous data collection and personal provocation in political action.

The 12-year-old John Bercow appeared on the BBC in Crackerjack in 1975.

Bercow’s father drove minicabs for a living and John Bercow went to Finchley Manorhill comprehensive school in north London.

(A bizarre 50-year feud started when his father, Charlie, and his uncle Samson – Alan Bercow‘s father – fell out over the ownership of the family minicab company in Finchley, North London. The feud between John Bercow’s father, Charlie, and Alan Bercow’s father, Samson, dates back to the 1950s and involved a successful minicab company in Finchley, North London, set up by Charlie.)

Bercow’s paternal grandfather, Jack Bercowitch, was from Romania who worked first as a gas fitter and then as a furrier, and in due course opened a shop.

1970 link

Two of his sons, Ralph and Charlie, set up a business called Bercow Motors, in Warren Street in central London, which prospered until the late 1960s, when the council painted yellow lines on the road outside their showroom. Charlie Bercow married Brenda Bailey, a legal secretary and in 1963 she gave birth to their son, John Simon Bercow.

Mr Bercow first became involved in politics as a teenager while attending a school in the Margaret Thatcher’s Finchley constituency.

Dickens Dossier:

In a Westminster Hall debate, Mr Mann said George Kennedy Young, who died in 1990, had been named in the first line of the document.

He said: ‘This is an original, I have spoken and met and got a copy from the person who personally handed it to Geoffrey Dickens who then personally gave it to Leon Brittan.

‘And what it says is, first line – GK Young heads up a Powellite faction known as Tory Action. GK Young, George Kennedy Young, was deputy director of MI6 in the past, long dead.

‘The allegations are that he manipulated a group of people and that within that there were paedophile rings. And it goes into detail – who it’s alleged were involved and where.

‘I won’t give all the locations because some would be I think sensitive and would potentially identify people – but London is one, Greater Manchester is another, North Yorkshire is a third one.’

Mr Mann said GK Young may be key in finding out what happened to the dossier.

Gordon Anglesea trial:

A police commissioner has told a jury that he used to drive a senior officer, Gordon Anglesea, accused of sexually abusing boys to Bry Estyn children’s home.

He used to give Anglesea lifts in a police vehicle when asked. He said: “The only place I recall taking him was to Bryn Estyn children’s home. If he wanted to go to Bryn Estyn he would ask me and I would take him.”

Jones said he would not go into the home with Anglesea but just drop him off and carry on with the other duties that he had. He did not know how or when Anglesea would leave.

“I have no idea. I have no recollection of collecting him,” he said

EXCLUSIVE — GORDON ANGLESEA: THE FINANCIAL REWARDS OF CHILD ABUSE

INCOMPETENCE BY North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Arfon Jones led to convicted paedophile Gordon Anglesea keeping his police pension.

The Commissioner has acknowledged Anglesea deserved to lose his pension but, in the eight weeks between Anglesea’s conviction and his death, failed to ask the Home Office to revoke it.

Rebecca understands the pension — which is fully-funded from the public purse — is worth up to £25,000 a year.

Jones’ inaction meant that Anglesea was being paid some £500 a week while he was in prison.

Jones has also decided that his widow, Sandra, should receive a widow’s pension  of 50 per cent.

She will receive up to £12,500 a year for the rest of her life.

Rebecca has also discovered the Commissioner did not consult the Home Office over this decision.

We have written to policing minister Brandon Lewis asking him to issue a “forfeiture certificate” under the Police Pensions Regulations 2015.

This would automatically revoke Anglesea’s pension — and prevent his widow from enjoying the proceeds of his child abuse.

I suspect a man who could be bribed and had dealings with the Iranians during ContraGate would have busted sanctions, too!

Worc2 This donation came from Intermarine’s two Texan directors, one of them being Mr Cloyd:

Worc3 Prior to setting up Intermarine, Cloyd was VP of B&R. B&R UK’s VP until 1982 was Vassall friend Raymond Govier

Worc5 Raymond Govier was Vassall friend and father of coke addict, criminal and Atkinson flatmate

Worc6 KBR, which merged with B&R, has a long history of corruption and would have expected a ROI for their donation.

Paedo MP cover-up claim: Top cop removed from sex abuse probe after naming politicians as suspects

There’s another reason why Scotland Yard were so keen to close the investigation down.

In November 1997 the South London Press ran a story about a ‘sex chamber’ hidden in the basement of Lambeth Police Station with bedding, a red light, and a manacle. Was Lambeth Police Station being used by the paedophile ring to abuse children and produce child pornography?

Bercow gave up a political lobbying job with the Tories’ favourite ad agency, Saatchi and Saatchi, to work for Jonathan Aitken, after previously spending a brief period in the City, working as a merchant banker for Hambros.

In 2001 the Purdews of Champneys (friends of Sir Jimmy Savile and Keith Vaz) briefly acquired Inglewood health hydro from agents of Saudi prince Mohammed bin Fahd. Inglewood had been the scene of allegations, published in the Guardian six years earlier, that then defence minister Jonathan Aitken, a director of the spa, had tried to arrange girls for a Saudi prince and his entourage.

The report led to the notorious libel action brought by Aitken ultimately culminating in his being sentenced to jail for perjury.

link

Former Tory MP Jonathan Aitken, once a director of Champneys Inglewood. He was accused by former employees of acting as a ‘pimp’ by requesting call girls, once for a sheikh and once for a group of Arabs.

Then he was embroiled in a legal dispute with former brothel keeper Lindi ‘Miss Whiplash’ St Clair, who claimed that she was thrown out of Inglewood partway through a course.

And though Aitken met his future wife Lolicia at Inglewood, he also cheated on her with bondage prostitute Paula Strudwick, telling her to collect the right sort of birch branches from the woods outside the estate for sadomasochistic sex games. You’d have thought someone would have twigged what was going on.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/columnists/article-259644/PS.html

After Aitken was jailed for perjury and perverting the course of justice, and he was forced to resign as a cabinet minister,

Bercow went to work for Virginia Bottomley, by then National Heritage Secretary, moving on at the 1997 election when her career as minister ended and he began his as an MP.

Sir Peter, who is married to the former Conservative Cabinet minister Virginia Bottomley, told Radio Four’s Today programme that people were also now wrongly suggesting that he may have visited the Elm Guest House, in Barnes, south-west London, which is at the centre of some of the current claims.

The Elm Guest House is alleged to have been the scene of paedophile activity and sex parties attended by politicians and other prominent figures in the 1970s and 1980s. Visitors are said to have included the late Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith.

IICSA Cyril Smith finding:

118. The fact that Cyril Smith’s public standing and professional career were never negatively impacted in any significant way by the suggestion that he was involved in child sexual abuse has given rise to considerable speculation that he was in some way protected by other politicians. We may consider the possibility that Smith was actively supported at the level of national politics, or at the very least, had a blind eye turned towards allegations against him, as part of the Westminster investigation.

Sir Charles Irving

A respectable father-of-four, he told how as a young man he was plied with booze by MP Charles Irving before the Tory later forced him to have sex in exchange for £30.

 Pinniger also worked for Charles Irving who offered steady ‘stream of advice’ to CHE

In 1975, a Conservative Group for Homosexual Equality (CHE) was formed by party members, led by Peter Walter Campbell, a Professor of Politics at Reading University. Campbell belonged to the Monday Club, a sub-group of ultra-libertarian Conservatives who believe in privatising everything from the prisons to the police. He was a member of the Albany Society which had campaigned for homosexuality to be legalised in 1967, and the very left-wing dominated Campaign for Homosexual Equality. They might have regarded him as an oddity, but he was like many of them in one striking way – he was a paedophile.

The name “Peter Campbell  – Monday Club” is found on this list of clients of the Elm Guesthouse, a boy-brothel. 

The place was closed down in 1988 but before she died, Mrs Kasir gave a list of regular clients to a former child protection officer, Mary Moss, who was investigating allegations made by victims. It was stunning, full of famous names from the world of show-business, M15 and politics. It included numerous MPs, and “Peter Campbell  – Monday Club”.

It could not refer to anyone else. Other Monday Club members on the list were Conservative MPs Charles Irving, Peter Bottomley and Harvey Proctor.
Not only did Peter Campbell use the boy-brothel, but he advertised it in the newsletter of the Conservative Group for Homosexual Equality, which he edited.

The advertisement mentioned that Elm gave a discount to members  of the “Spartacus club”  – an infamous pederast network that fixed up paedophiles with victims to molest while on trips abroad.
Photo_on_2012_12_21_at_14_28_4

Researchers for NAPAC (the National Association of People Abused in Childhood)  have tracked down a letter Campbell wrote in 1982, at the time of this advertisement, with a handwritten note on it from Peter Campbell to John Rowe, another frequenter of the Elm Guesthouse, saying “I have now inserted the entry about the hotel but can’t find the text about the Dutch adventure   – could you please let me have another copy? – Pete”. The Netherlands was the nearest and most popular destination for the boy-molesting holidays organised by Spartacus Club.  
Campbell could hop on the train at Reading and be in Paddington in forty-five minutes. From there he could take the Central Line Tube or more likely, on his professorial salary, he could afford to take a taxi to Barnes in Richmond. There he would select whatever bewildered, depressed young boy took his fancy, take him to a bedroom or even into the sauna, perform obscene acts on him, check him back in, and then have a drink in the bar before going on to meet friends at the House of Commons, or home to Reading. He was probably a member of the Spartacus club himself, and despite all of that he went on teaching in a British university. This molester of children was paid to teach teenagers aged from 18 upwards.
  Under the leadership of John Major, the CGHE increased in size and strength and by 2010 it had quite simply taken over the party.

When arrested, he claimed he was using the drug as a painkiller for his close friend and Tory MP for Cheltenham Sir Charles Irving, who he said was dying of AIDS

Clive Froggatt Clive Froggatt, a leading physician in England, and a favorite of prime minister Margaret Thatcher and a very senior government health adviser to both Margaret Thatcher and John Major, was addicted to heroin, allegedly taking up to eight fixes a day.

link

this is the doctor who has been a guru to a succession of former Health Secretaries including Ken Clarke,now Chancellor;

Virginia Bottomley, now Heritage chief;

and William Waldegrave  – special advisor to Patrick Rock.

William Waldegrave, the health secretary, giving details of the two enquiries launched in the aftermath of the case, described Beck as evil. He said that the Commons had shown its support for Mr Janner.

Keith Vaz, Labour MP for Leicester East, condemned the ”cowardly attacks” on Mr Janner. Michael Latham, Tory MP for Rutland and Melton, said that Mr Janner had been the target of ”vile allegations and lies”.

link

As Beck was sentenced, William Waldegrave, the former health secretary announced two inquiries. One would investigate the selection of staff in Britain’s children’s homes. The other, chaired by Andrew Kirkwood QC which is reporting today, would find out why staff at one of Britain’s biggest social services departments failed to act on warnings which would have lead them to the discovery of a catalogue of abuse. Allegations of physical and sexual abuse were first made in 1980 – seven years after Beck started working as an officer in charge of a children’s home. They continued over the next six years, from children and social workers, and on four different occasions were passed on to police. After one investigation, police charged Beck with assault. However, he was subsequently acquitted after a crown court trial in 1982. Despite these allegations, Beck continued working at The Beeches, Leicester Forest East, where he had been officer in charge since 1978. He had spent the previous five years working at The Poplars – a home in Market Harborough – before moving to Ratcliffe Road children’s home. He eventually resigned in 1986 after he was suspended following an allegation of sexual harassment by a fellow member of staff. However he was given references which enabled him to take jobs with Brent and Hertfordshire social services. He also worked with charities.

link

Froggatt also worked on a Tory health service think-tank with MP David Willetts, who was forced to resign for trying to nobble a Commons committee probing sleaze.

Froggatt, an advisor”on heroin movie Eyes Wide Shut starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, publicly claims he is now “clean”.

Froggatt was brought into the Conservative fold in 1983 by Sir Norman Fowler and quickly became an adviser to the powerful Downing Street policy unit.

He developed a close friendship with Virginia Bottomley and frequently dined at her house.

Froggatt even told friends that he advised her on everything from how she enters a room to how she does her hair.

From prison to the palace: Gerald Ronson, jailed for Guinness scam, picks up CBE

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2149045/From-prison-palace-Gerald-Ronson-jailed-Guiness-scam-picks-CBE.html

an evening at Covent Garden Opera House some years back when three black-tied men strode onto the empty stage after the main performance and launched into a spirited rendering of “A policeman’s lot is not a happy one” to the uproarious laughter of their guests.

The three included the then-serving Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police John Stevens, the former president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews and suspected child rapist Lord Janner QC himself, and Gerald Ronson, a billionaire property dealer who was imprisoned for his part in the huge “Guinness” financial fraud in 1991.

What the three men had in common, apart from a love of opera, was they all sat on the advisory committee of a charity called the Community Security Trust, a private investigation agency run out of the British Board of Jewish Deputies and which has been chaired by Gerald Ronson since he left prison.

According to Janner’s own memoir, the ad-hoc Gilbert and Sullivan performance must have taken place after the first police investigation was derailed. There is no suggestion that John Stevens — who has since been ennobled — did anything improper, but it is still strange that the media has not found anything interesting in the head of Scotland Yard’s night at the opera with the suspected child rapist and jailbird billionaire.

While Mitford was married to Bryan Guinness, they lived in Germany for a short time before moving to England. Mitford’s children had to be tutored privately in England because they weren’t accepted into any local schools. Mitford was also a distant relative of Winston Churchill, and was briefly imprisoned during the war because she was considered a threat to national security.

Jonathan Guinness is the elder of the two sons of Bryan Guinness, 2nd Baron Moyne and his first wife Diana Mitford (later Lady Mosley).

Prostitute in Max Mosley ‘Nazi’ dungeon orgy was wife of MI5 officer

2008

An MI5 agent has been forced to resign after it was revealed his wife took part in a Nazi-style sex orgy with Formula One boss Max Mosley

The wife of an MI5 agent was one of the five prostitutes who took part in a ‘Nazi- style’ orgy with motor racing chief Max Mosley.

It left MI5 facing questions last night over whether one of its officers had helped set up the sting which saw a lurid five-hour video of the sado-masochistic sex session sold to a newspaper.

The agent was forced to resign when the activities of his 38-year-old wife – who used the name Mistress Abi – were revealed.

Security sources dismissed any suggestion that the surveillance officer was involved in the secret filming in a ‘torture dungeon’ at a £2million flat in Chelsea and insisted he was unaware of it until after the story appeared in the newspapers.

The third son of John Granville Morrison, 1st Baron Margadale, was Sir Peter Morrison (1944 –1995), was Conservative MP for Chester from 1974 to 1992 and died aged 51 in 1995.

He was Margaret Thatcher’s parliamentary private secretary and deputy chairman of the Conservative Party.

In October 2012 it was alleged that evidence has been seen that linked Peter Morrison to the North Wales children’s homes case, in which up to 650 children in 40 homes were sexually, physically and emotionally abused over a 20 year period.

It has also been alleged that Sir Peter was protected …and that his behaviour was covered up by senior party members and the media.

Morrison is now named in connection with a fresh inquiry into these allegations, which could also implicate the late DJ and TV presenter Jimmy Savile.

John Morrison’s daughter, Dame Mary Morrison, was a Woman of the Bedchamber to Queen Elizabeth II for forty years.  She has been described as one of the queen’s closest confidantes.

2016 – Bercow is accused of a cover-up re: Keith Vaz

John Bercow is accused of a ‘cover up’ after a Tory MP called for Keith Vaz’s suspension ONE YEAR before rent boy claims surfaced

‘These events had all the hallmarks of an establishment cover-up.’

  • Andrew Bridgen wrote to John Bercow to ensure Keith Vaz was suspended
  • He didn’t want Vaz to be chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee 
  • But the Speaker refused and Mr Bridgen believes it was a ‘cover up’

Three weeks after Mr Bercow sent his letter, he was pictured with Mr Vaz in the directors’ box of Leicester City Football Club.

The Vaz saga is unfolding just as the Gordon Anglesea trial gets underway:

It all comes at the same time as Gordon Anglesea jury is sworn in at Mold – and Anglesea and Bryn go to the heart of much of this – and the westmonster links…


In December 1991 — eight months after Anglesea retired from the North Wales Police — the Independent On Sunday wrote about the police investigation into allegations of child abuse at the Bryn Estyn children’s home in North Wales.

The front page article stated:

“According to former residents of Bryn Estyn, Gordon Anglesea, a former senior North Wales police officer, was a regular visitor there.”

“He recently retired suddenly without explanation.”

Sian Griffiths worked for Clwyd Council in the inquiry office on the 1994 Jillings and six years later on the Waterhouse inquiry which looked into the systematic abuse at the children’s homes.

Labour MP Ann Clwyd today revealed she had read the 1994 report by John Jillings into the abuse before it was pulped and called for it to be published.

She said: “It shows rape and torture… the effects on those young boys cannot be underestimated.”

The report was trashed on the insistence of Clwyd Council’s insurers, who feared a wave of writs from victims.

RETIRED NORTH Wales Police superintendent Gordon Anglesea was arrested on suspicion of historic physical and sexual assaults against children in December 2013

Anglesea was detained at his Colwyn Bay home in December by officers of the National Crime Agency.

Anglesea was the 18th person to be arrested as part of Operation Pallial, based at North Wales Police headquarters.

Gordon Anglesea

Freemasonry

Anglesea was questioned also about his connection with freemasonry because of an underlying suggestion that there had been a “cover up” in his case. He disclosed that he had become a full member of Berwyn Lodge in Wrexham, in 1982, after being a probationer in a lodge at Colwyn Bay from about 1976.

He had then transferred to a new Wrexham lodge, Pegasus Lodge, in 1984 because it offered an opportunity for swifter advance in freemasonry.

He was aware now from records that one member of the staff at Bryn Estyn had become a member of Berwyn Lodge in April 1984. He had remained a member of the Pegasus Lodge since despite a directive from the Chief Constable of the North Wales Police, David Owen, in September 1984.

Abuse charge ex-policeman Gordon Anglesea ‘lied under oath’

10 Oct 2016

A former police superintendent accused of historical sexual abuse has been accused of deliberately lying on oath.

Mold Crown Court heard Gordon Anglesea was trying to “wriggle out” of the fact he “said two vastly different things” during a High Court libel action in 1994, and the current trial.

Last week, during questioning by his own barrister, Mr Anglesea told the court he visited a shower area of a Home Office attendance centre he used to run “once or twice”.

Cross-examining Mr Anglesea on Monday, Eleanor Laws QC, referred to evidence he gave in the 1994 libel case, which resulted in Mr Anglesea being awarded nearly £400,000 in damages.

In 1994, under oath, he was asked: “Did you stand in the showers watching the boys regularly?”

He had answered: “I went to the showers on every occasion the attendance centre was open.”

link

In 1989 Anglesea was a founder member of the town’s Rotary Club, serving as its president until 1991. He was also a Freemason.

Previously he had been a lay preacher for the Old Colwyn Methodist Church and had at one time and another served as a school governor for St David’s High in Wrexham and Eirias High in Colwyn Bay.

Gordon Anglesea: Former police chief guilty of child sex abuse

Oct 21 2016

During the trial, Anglesea was questioned about links to other paedophiles, including Gary Cooke, who is currently serving 14 years in prison, and Peter Howarth, former deputy head of the Bryn Estyn children’s home, who died in prison in 1997.

In 1994, Anglesea was awarded £375,000 in libel damages after media organisations ran stories about his links to abuse at children’s homes in north Wales.

One report, published in 1991, detailed how Bryn Estyn residents claimed he was a regular visitor to the home.

Freemasons delete webpage on paedophile Gordon Anglesea’s libel judge:

Convicted paedophile, police superintendent and freemason Gordon Anglesea is dead.

in 1994, Anglesea was famously awarded £375,000 in libel damages against four media organisations who presciently linked Anglesea to allegations of child abuse by suggesting he had been a regular visitor to the infamous Bryn Estyn children’s home in North Wales.

But the libel judge – Sir Maurice Drake – gave a monstrously biased summing up in favour of Anglesea, inwhich he said:

“Experience in the courts shows that where men and women, boys and girls make complaints of sexual assault they do sometimes make up stories, either completely or exaggerate some incident out of all proportion so that it no longer bears any relationship to the truth.

“And of course a complaint that someone has sexually assaulted you is comparatively easy to make up and difficult to rebut. It is the nature of a sexual complaint that no one else is likely to have seen it.”

It turned out – unsurprisingly – that Justice Drake was, like Anglesea, a freemason.

Which is probably why the Provincial Grand Chapter of Hertfordshire has deleted all references to him being a member:

masons-anglesea

Which is a bit strange. because until recently, the Chapter even had a page eulogising Drake as one of their leading members:

drake-masons

The page has been deleted – although an archived version can still be seen, at least for the time being.

Perhaps there should be an investigation made into connections between VIP child abuse and the freemasons.

If investigators could be found who were guaranteed to be free of connections to the Freemasons themselves that is.

A tall order in the UK.

– single foster parent to traumatised children

Article from 2007

Woman QC leads the way at the office and home; LEGAL WEEK.
LIVERPOOL’S only woman QC has taken the challenge of juggling home and work commitments to a new level.

Family, criminal and personal injury law specialist, Tania Griffiths, has a well-earned reputation as the city’s “tripping queen”, having spent 15 years defending the council against accident claims.

Last night she revealed her parallel life as a single mum to numerous foster children, many who suffered trauma and abuse at the hands of their natural parents, and some of whom she has adopted.

Last night, Ms Griffiths, 47, from Southport, told how she managed to balance a pioneering career with raising an often troublesome family alone.

Last autumn she became only the third female barrister in Liverpool to serve as a Queens Counsel, following in the footsteps of Rose Heilbron, who took silk in the 1960s, and now Judge Margaret de Haas.

Ms Griffiths has often forged new ground in the region’s legal world, becoming the first woman to be accepted to Liverpool’s biggest set, at Exchange Chambers, in 1982.

The daughter of a car painter and a nurse, former Christ the King Comprehensive pupil Ms Griffiths originally wanted to join the police, but changed her mind after starting a law degree at Liverpool Polytechnic.

Ms Griffiths says her title will allow her to pursue more high-profile criminal and family cases in Merseyside, while spending as much time as possible at home in Birkdale, where she lives with her adopted children next door to her father.

“I always wanted to have a family, and I was single, so at the age of 30 there was no man, and I thought if I don’t get a move on I’m never going to get my family,” she said.

I’ve never regarded myself as a role model

He added: “A grave miscarriage of justice was avoided in Mr Steen’s case only by the even-handedness of the judge, the good sense of the jury and the great skill and determination of defence counsel Miss Tania Griffiths QC. My thanks to them all.

The client, a father and businessman of impeccable character and reputation, whose business required him to frequently travel to the US and Asia, faced the loss of his good character, livelihood and liberty and his acquittal now allows his reputation to remain untarnished.

Macur Review

The Macur Review is an independent review, chaired by Lady Justice Macur, DBE. It’s a review of Sir Ronald Waterhouse’s inquiry into the abuse of children in care in the former Gwynedd and Clwyd council areas of North Wales between 1974 and 1996.

The Government have redacted, as we have heard, huge swathes of the Macur review, removing in particular the names of individuals who have been the subject of speculation and who have national recognition.

For example, the name Peter Morrison has been redacted from the report, but puzzlingly, other names—Greville Janner, Lord Gareth Williams—have not.

Mr David Jones (Clwyd West) (Con): If I may correct the hon. Gentleman, Peter Morrison’s name does appear in the body of the report. It is important that the hon. Gentleman clarifies that, because it is not redacted.

Ian C. Lucas: It appears in one part of the report, but it is also redacted in other parts of it. His name appears in the introduction, I believe, but in the part that relates to establishment figures, his name is redacted.

Mr David Jones: The point I was seeking to make is that his name is not wholly redacted, and since the hon. Gentleman is making a speech that covers very important matters, it is necessary to clarify that point.

Ian C. Lucas: I am grateful for that clarification, but in the chapter that relates to establishment figures, the two names that I referred to are not redacted, whereas Peter Morrison’s name is. It is very difficult to deduce a line of principle to see why someone made that decision. I think we need to have that information

Keith Vaz and old friend Stephen Purdew of Champneys:

The silken-voiced Vaz and the rougher-sounding Purdew, who is worth in the region of £50 million, are old pals.

exterior-of-champneys-springs-health-resort-near-ashby-de-la-zouch-a7b7hb

Cambridge-educated Vaz says their friendship goes back 20 years, and, indeed, it appears to have started after Purdew’s company took over Springs Hydro in Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire (Vaz is the MP for Leicester East).

It was soon publicised that Vaz was among those patronising the gymnasium. Vaz’s daughter Anjali was a bridesmaid when Purdew, 52, married blonde former model Isabele Cave, 30.

Purdew’s son by an earlier relationship, Robert, 19 — who recently did 10 days work experience in Vaz’s office — was best man.

Amitabh Bachchan poses with Samantha Cameron, who hosted the Silver Star charity reception. Speaker of the House of Commons, Rt Hon John Bercow MP (R), presented the award to Amitabh Bachchan.
Amitabh Bachchan was the guest of honour for a charity event by Leicester-based Silver Star that campaigns to create awareness about diabetes. The actor is the international patron of the charity, known for its mobile diabetes units. The charity event was hosted by Prime Minister David Cameron’s wife, Samantha Cameron, at their office at 10, Downing Street.

Bachchan described David Cameron as “gracious” and “patient” and revealed how Cameron knew him.

“He had heard and knew about me…through the Nanny to his child,” the actor concluded.

Amitabh Bachchan the actor and philanthropist was greeted by British Prime Minister David Cameron at his iconic home at 10 Downing Street.
“….what an honour, a most rare opportunity to be there.  …And a rare visit to the Monarch’s bedroom! Where the to-be- Coronated King or Queen spends the night before the crown is put on,” he added.

Watchdogs facing calls to investigate if cash from Keith Vaz’s diabetes charity, Silver Star was used to pay for sex with rent boys

  • Leicester East MP Keith Vaz set up diabetes charity Silver Star
  • Two £150 deposits paid last month into account by man linked to charity

 The charity says its funds were not used to pay the rent boys, but no one has explained why Mr Dragusin paid them.

An associate said Mr Vaz and the Romanian trusted each other. ‘It was always as if Keith was really looking after Daniel, not a normal employer-employee relationship,’ he told The Times. ‘They seemed to be quite close, put it that way, in the sense that Daniel was doing a lot of work for Keith, and Keith was looking after him.’

From 2008 to 2010 he worked as a chauffeur for Express Rent-a-Car. He later became Mr Vaz’s driver, and was occasionally allowed to borrow a ‘fancy car’, said the associate. ‘He was often driving Keith’s car when he was not on duty.

The latest disclosure centres on Mr Vaz’s links to an exclusive new development in Kerala, southern India, called Eshta. The resort of premium villas and apartments, set in 60 acres of waterways and palm forests, describes itself as “a haven of luxury and decadence” for “the cream of society”.

The directors of the development project include Arjan and Mitesh Vekaria, brothers who own Vascroft Contractors Ltd, a company that worked on several state school building projects in London.

Celebrity endorsers of this monument to housing decadence for the “privileged few” are patrons of Keith Vaz’s very own healthcare charity, Silver Star Diabetes.  Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan

Mr Vaz and Dorothy Purdew, the owner of Champneys, have given testimonial endorsements for the 88-page Eshta development brochure. In the document, Mr Vaz praises the “super-quality” project as an example of the growing business potential of southern India, while Mrs Purdew is quoted as recommending Kerala as “the perfect escape”.

eshta-purdew

In January 2007, Mr Vaz launched the Silver Star Appeal, a diabetes campaign, which now has a branch in India and has become the Eshta project’s nominated charity. Donors to Silver Star can enter a competition for the chance to win a“lifetime” villa retreat at the resort.

The charity also has close ties with Champneys. Mrs Purdew is listed as a Silver Star patron and a new mobile diabetes assessment unit has been named “Dorothy” in her honour.

Mr Vaz is understood to have spent one night at Champneys after attending the engagement party of his friend, Stephen Purdew, co-owner of the spa. Mr Purdew is also godfather to one of Mr Vaz’s children, who is believed to have undertaken work experience in the MP’s office.

A spokeswoman for Mr Vaz said he has no financial connections to Eshta or its directors and had “never” received hospitality from the resort or visited Kerala.

British MP, Des Browne, recently named as Britain’s special envoy to Sri Lanka was one of those who attended a diaspora Tamil conference in London last week where no criticism of the LTTE holding a captive human shield of civilians in the last sliver of land the Tigers hold in the Vanni.

“These are the people foisted on us to try and find a fair settlement,” senior official sources in Colombo said yesterday. “This was called a Tamil diaspora conference but was obviously a clear last ditch effort on behalf of the LTTE.”

Among those who attended this meeting was veteran American civil rights campaigner, Ref. Jesse Jackson who said that “we (the global community) have a moral obligation to stop the killings” in Sri Lanka, TamilNet reported.

Among those who attended this conference were Mike Griffiths, a member of the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party…

The delegates were addressed by distinguished speakers including American civil rights campaigner Rev. Jesse Jackson and Des Browne MP, the British Special Envoy to Sri Lanka and former defence secretary. Other guests included Lord Falconer, Siobhan McDonagh MP, Simon Hughes MP, Keith Vaz MP and Sir Jimmy Savile.

Peter Tatchell: Time To Lower Age Of Consent to cater to a ‘fairly rare’ situ where 2 x 15 yr olds criminalised

Is this the current CHE membership leaflet with photo of Nettie Pollard & Peter Tatchell from 2011?

“Pollard gave a constant stream of support to paedophiles and promoted their views.”

Photo below: Nettie Pollard (EC Member) with Peter Tatchell at the 2011 Annual Conference:

Nettie Pollard was member number 70 of the Paedophile Information Exchange.

Pensioner backed Paedophile Information Exchange and may hold key to links with left wing groups

Nettie Pollard was a key figure in the London left – a Sunday People investigation reveals her to be a chief apologist for some of PIE’s most chilling demands

Even those who have lived beside her for years have little idea about her life – none of her neighbours has ever been invited inside the home she has lived in alone for almost 30 years.

But 69-year-old Nettie Pollard may hold the key to how the Paedophile Information Exchange infiltrated left wing groups in the 1970s.

She was a key figure in the London left, working for the National Council for Civil Liberties for two decades.

But a Sunday People investigation reveals Pollard to be chief apologist for some of PIE’s most chilling demands.

Our investigation found that throughout her career Pollard gave a constant stream of support to paedophiles and promoted their views. She also:

  • Supported PIE’s call to scrap the age of consent.
  • Argued against the introduction of a bill to protect children.
  • Sat on committees with known ­paedophiles and PIE members.
  • Wrote a twisted essay defending sex between adults and children.

It emerged MP Harriet Harman, ­husband Jack Dromey and former Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt had been involved with the NCCL when PIE was affiliated to it.

Mrs Harman has subsequently moved to distance herself from Pollard and paedophiles, with a spokesman stating they “did not influence any of the work she did there”.

Image result for harriet harman pie

However one source involved with the London left in the 70s claims – ­embarrassingly for Mrs Harman – that she and Pollard did work together on occasions within the NCCL .

The source said: “Nettie was a big presence in the movement back in the 1970s and couldn’t be ignored by anyone wanting to get on in the NCCL.”

Our investigation first places Pollard in 1975 working as the Gay and Lesbian Officer for the NCCL.

And that brought her into close ­contact with the infamous PIE – the child sex group which campaigned to have the age of consent lowered or scrapped.

As well as her role at the NCCL, Pollard was and remains a significant member of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality – a group that defended PIE’s rights at their 1983 conference.

But even after PIE was disbanded in 1984, Pollard made no secret of her ­sympathy for the organisation’s aims.

In 1993 she contributed a ­defence of the ­sexualisation of youngsters to a book called Bad Girls and Dirty Pictures.

Entitled The Small Matter of Children, Pollard’s essay draws on work by known paedophiles such as former PIE vice-chair Warren Middleton to build its case.

Pollard argues child sex should be legal if the act is “consensual”.

It also uses language like “willing partners” to describe sex between adults and children.

But by far the most disturbing section is Pollard’s attempt to justify the sexualisation of children.

She writes: “Far from being ‘innocent’ and becoming sexual at puberty, as was once the common belief, it is now indisputable that everyone is sexual, even before birth.”

The research cited was also used in PIE’s bid to reduce the age of consent to just four.

Pollard continued to work for the NCCL until her mysterious ­departure from the group in 1997.

She was made redundant but reports from Feminists Against Censorship implies murkier reasons ­behind her exit.

A ­newsletter from the time reads: “Within the last several months, two of NCCL’s employees have remarked that the organisation’s longest-serving staff member, Nettie Pollard, was the last civil libertarian left on the payroll.”

Challenging the cost-cutting explanation given it added: “Since she is one of the few indispensable staff members, and the most ­expensive to make redundant, we suspect economy is not the reason.”

Pollard, whose Facebook page currently shows her support for causes including an anti-drones campaign and attacks on the “Big Brother” state, also showcases her taste in music with a link to indie rock band The Donutsh – described by one of their following as sounding “like Johnny Cash biting off Johnny Rotten’s head”.

She refused to answer the door to us when we visited her home.

Sacked Briton abused 12 boys

Dr Edward Marsh, whose real name is Derek Slade (61) was sentenced to 21 years in prison last week Monday after being found guilty at the Ipswich Crown Court of abuse against 12 boys aged eight to 13 between 1978 and 1983. He abused the boys at a military-style boarding school, where he was the principal, in the 1980s.

When he came to Swaziland, ‘Marsh’ established a false identity. With the help of Derek Sawyer, a prominent Labour politician in Britain, the former leader of Islington Council and now chair of the London Region Courts Board. Slade and Sawyer co-founded an NGO, the International British Educational Projects (IBEP) and Slade came to Swaziland as the IBEP’s appointee and Sawyer went on to run the school board.

Both were later removed in a public notice and the reasons were not stated.

Sawyer facilitated Slade’s escape from his past by setting up educational companies in which the disgraced teacher used a fake name, CV and reference.

They were pupils at St George’s School, in Great Finborough, Suffolk.

The politician, Sawyer, has been chairman of numerous bodies involved in London’s probation service and justice system.

Sawyer, who denies any wrongdoing, helped Slade after the paedophile was first convicted of child abuse in the 80’s. Slade was found to have savagely beaten boys at Dalesdown School, in Sussex, and was jailed for three months, though the sentence was reduced on appeal to a conditional discharge.

The pair then set up the International British Educational Projects (IBEP), which allowed Slade to work with children in India and Africa under the pseudonym Dr Edward Marsh – a name taken from a child who died at the age of eight in 1955.

Sawyer said he was unaware Slade had given him false information or was using a fake passport. He said: “I have been very shocked by Derek Slade’s conviction for child abuse. I have been taken in and have been used by him.”

Slade’s downfall last week resulted from simultaneous investigations on three continents.

The Ubombo Sugar Company in Swaziland, the London branch of the charity Help A Poor Child (HAPC), which briefly funded an orphanage school IBEP opened in India in 2003, and former victims of Slade’s brutal military school, all helped police untangle a complex web of evidence – about Slade and his connections with Sawyer. In 1983, after whistleblowers had brought the abuse to the attention of the BBC’s Roger Cook, Slade was forced to leave the school.

But a government inquiry proved a whitewash and Slade remained a school governor.

By then he had left four British schools after brutality and indecency allegations. Following his criminal conviction, he could never teach in Britain again.

How they were removed from Swaziland

MBABANE – Ubombo Sugar, on discovering Sawyer’s links to Slade, removed Sawyer from its school board.

They even placed a notice in The Times of Swaziland on January17, 2009, making it clear that the parting was not amicable.

Part of the statement said the trustees had removed all directors who had been appointed by IBEP; these were Sawyer Marsh, Sawyer’s wife and Wendy Warner. The Trust also took over all of IBEP’s shareholdings in SWAZEP (Swazi Educational Projects (Pty) LTD).

A source for The Mail on Sunday said last week: “I hope Slade rots. There is no doubt to the closeness and longevity of his and Sawyer’s relationship. It is said that in support of the application for ‘Marsh’ to come into Swaziland, Sawyer/IBEP presented a very glowing CV with documents attached.” Slade was arrested in England last February when he attended to a medical appointment as Edward Marsh.

At his home in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, police found huge amounts of child pornography, and his fake passport.

How ‘Marsh’ was born and Slade disappeared

MBABANE – ‘Derek Slade’ disappeared and ‘Edward Marsh’ was born – or, rather, reborn.

Police believe that Slade picked the name after trawling cemeteries until he found the grave of a boy who would have been a similar age to his own, had he lived.

He then obtained a copy of the dead boy’s birth certificate and used this to obtain a false passport in Edward Marsh’s name in 1988. The passport was used by him to travel to the United States, India, Russia and Africa. Slade also used a genuine passport in his own name to travel to India.

Meanwhile, his friend Derek Sawyer became a Labour councillor in Islington in 1982. Oddly, the ward he represented was St George’s – the same as the name of the school he and Slade founded. Derrick Pereira, UK chairman of Help A Poor Child (HAPC), in an interview with the Mail on Sunday (a British newspaper) said concerned sources in Swaziland eventually spotted HAPC’s website warning, and contacted him. The charity’s delicate wording was understandable, given the involvement of powerful Labour politicians with the project.

The African investigation established Marsh’s passport fraud from his visa details. Issued in London on September 25, 1998, it was for an Edward Marsh born on May 31, 1947, in Derby, two years before Slade was born in Southampton.

They scrutinised Slade’s fake CV as ‘Marsh’, which claimed a first class BA degree from University College, Oxford, in the Trinity term of 1969, and a BA Education from the University of Birmingham via Saltley Teachers’ Training College, on July 23, 1973.

Senior Labour Politician Helped Paedophile Headmaster Establish False Identity – #1

The Mail Online.
By Eileen Fairweather.

Deep Politics Forum,
11th September 2010.

A paedophile who was sentenced to 21 years in prison
last week has links with a Labour politician who is a senior
figure in the judicial system, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Derek Slade, who abused boys at the boarding school
where he was headmaster in the Eighties, was given
help in establishing a false identity by Derek Sawyer,
former leader of Islington Council and now chair of the
London Region Courts Board.

Mr Sawyer facilitated Slade’s escape from his past
by setting up educational companies in which the
disgraced teacher used a fake name and CV.

Oxford-educated Slade, 61, was jailed last Monday
after being found guilty at Ipswich Crown Court of
abuse against 12 boys aged eight to 13 between
1978 and 1983.

They were pupils at St George’s School,
at Great Finborough, Suffolk. But he escaped justice
for years using an alias with Mr Sawyer’s knowledge.
The politician has been chairman of *numerous bodies
involved in London’s probation service and justice
system.

Mr Sawyer, who denies any wrongdoing, helped Slade
after the paedophile was first convicted of child abuse
in the Eighties. Slade was found to have savagely beaten
boys at Dalesdown School, in Sussex, and was jailed for
three months, though the*sentence was reduced on appeal
to a conditional discharge.

The pair set up International British Educational Projects,
which allowed Slade to work with children in India and Africa
under the pseudonym Dr Edward Marsh, a name taken from
a child who died aged eight in 1955. He obtained a copy of
the child’s birth certificate and acquired a false passport.

Mr Sawyer, who was an Islington councillor until
2006, became leader of Islington Council in 1992,
after the discovery that paedophiles had infiltrated
all 12 of its children’s homes. The council barred an
inquiry from naming anyone suspected of involvement
in the abuse.

Mr Sawyer said he was unaware Slade had given
him false information or was using a fake passport.
He said: “I have been very shocked by Derek Slade’s
conviction for child abuse. I have been taken in and
have been used by him.”

The paedophile and and law chief: It took 32 years to
bring pervert headmaster to justice …but he was helped
to hide from his past

The soldiers’ sons blinked back tears as the television
news showed their fathers setting sail for the Falklands
War. In 1982, the soldiers’ battle for survival had just
begun, but so had the children’s.

The scared youngsters were packed off to a new military
boarding school, St George’s, in Suffolk where they were
abused by the sadistic, paedophile headmaster.

At the start of this month, Derek Slade was found guilty
at Ipswich Crown Court of numerous serious crimes against
12 boys aged eight to 13 between 1978 and 1983. He was
jailed for 21 years last Monday.

Now The Mail on Sunday can exclusively reveal how
Slade, 61, escaped police for years using an alias with
the knowledge of a Labour politician at the heart of
Britain’s justice system.

Derek Sawyer, former Labour leader of Islington Council
and now head of the London Region Courts Board, helped
Slade maintain a fake identity after Slade was first convicted
of abuse in the Eighties.

The politician even set up a limited company “International
British Educational Projects (IBEP)” with the paedophile that
allowed him to work with vulnerable children under his false
name with a fake CV and a reference.

The pair have a connection that spans four decades.

Slade’s downfall last week resulted from simultaneous
investigations on three continents. A sugar company
in Swaziland, the London branch of the charity
Help A Poor Child (HAPC) which briefly funded an
orphanage school IBEP opened in India in 2003, and
former victims of Slade’s brutal military school, all helped
police untangle a complex web of evidence about Slade
and his connections with Sawyer.

It is not known when Derek Slade and Derek Sawyer first
met, but records show that in 1977, Sawyer set up Anglemoss,
the company behind St George’s School, with Slade. Sawyer was
then 27, and had recently joined the Labour Party. He resigned as
a director of Slade’s British schools soon after helping set them up.

Four other directors then joined the company. When contacted
by The Mail on Sunday last week, Sawyer denied that he was
ever a founding director of the school.

Slade, then 28, an Oxford classics graduate, had no formal
teaching qualifications but was the head teacher of the school
which was based first at Wicklewood, Norfolk, then at Great
Finborough, near Stowmarket, Suffolk.

The school, which had 350 pupils within six years, had
low fees and was aimed at the lower ranks in the Armed
Forces. At Slade’s trial, several witnesses described his
“reign of terror”. One of them, Alistair (not his real name)
told the jury that he was broken physically and mentally
by the headmaster within 72 hours of arriving at the school.

Alistair, whose father fought for Britain in the Falklands,
wrote home that he was unhappy. He was unaware that
Slade read the children’s letters. He was summoned to
Slade’s office.

When he did not address him as “sir”, Slade knocked him
to the floor. “I didn’t even see it coming, a slap across the
side of my face and I hit the deck screaming with pain,”
said Alistair. Slade flew into a rage and resumed his attack.
“I was lying in a heap. He went crazy because I couldn’t stop
crying.”

Slade dragged him to a chair where he was caned.
During the hour-long assault, Slade pulled off Alistair’s
shorts and slashed both his face and body.
“I couldn’t work out what I’d done wrong. Slade looked like
a monster, a madman. In his eyes there was evil.”

Alistair described how he was eventually made to take part
in what Slade called his “midnight feasts”, dinner parties at
his house in the school grounds for Slade’s male friends,
where the boys were sexually abused.

In 1983, after whistleblowers had brought the abuse to the
attention of the BBC’s Roger Cook, Slade was forced to leave
the school. But a Government inquiry proved a whitewash and
Slade remained a school governor.

However in November 1986, Slade was convicted of savagely
beating boys at Dalesdown Preparatory School in Sussex.

The trial was the result of The Mail on Sunday publicising pupils’
allegations in February of that year. The judge described photos
of their injuries as “sickening”.

Slade was jailed for three months at Chichester Crown Court.
He appealed and his sentence was reduced to a conditional
discharge.

Sawyer took over the leadership of Islington Council in 1992,
when the media revealed paedophiles had infiltrated all 12 of
its children’s homes

By then he had left four British schools after brutality
and indecency allegations. Following his criminal conviction,
he could never again teach in Britain.

“Derek Slade” disappeared and “Edward Marsh” was born; or,
rather, reborn. Police believe that Slade picked the name after
trawling cemeteries until he found the grave of a boy who would
have been a similar age to his own, had he lived.

He then obtained a copy of the dead boy’s birth certificate
and used this to obtain a false passport in Edward Marsh’s
name in 1988. The passport was used by him to travel in
the United States, India, Russia and Africa. Slade also used
a genuine passport in his own name to travel to India.

Meanwhile, his friend Derek Sawyer became a Labour
councillor in Islington in 1982. Oddly, the ward he
represented was St George’s, the same as the name
of the school he and Slade founded.

Sawyer took over the leadership of Islington Council
from Margaret Hodge in 1992, when the media revealed
that paedophiles had infiltrated all 12 of its children’s homes.
Hodge took the flak for the scandal but the role of her successor
also now demands closer scrutiny.

Although a damning independent inquiry confirmed Islington
had employed 26 alleged child pornographers and pimps, the
council, now headed by Sawyer, had set its terms of reference
and barred it from naming anyone. No one was ever arrested in
the UK.

Two ringleaders were eventually apprehended by police
in Morocco and Thailand for the abuse of local children.

Four days before the report was published in 1995,
Sawyer and Slade registered the company that allowed
the latter to access more children abroad. The pseudo
-charity, International British Educational Projects
(IBEP), aimed to bring education “on the British model”
to impoverished children in Africa, Russia and India.

The Mail on Sunday has obtained an early IBEP sales pitch,
which gives both Sawyer’s home address in North London,
where he still lives, and a Mickleover, Derbyshire, address
for the fictitious Edward Marsh.

It is undated but Sawyer’s phone number has an
0171 prefix, which dates it to prior to BT’s 2000 move
to 020 numbers for London. It suggests that interested
clients ring either Sawyer (described as) Director, London
office, or “Mr E. Marsh, Projects Co-ordinator, Derby”.

Following Slade’s trial, police revealed he had been working
on a charitable schools project in Swaziland.

The project was sponsored by Ubombo Sugar. Police have
confirmed that in 1999, by which time Slade had a criminal
conviction, “Dr Edward Marsh” visited Swaziland as IBEP’s
appointee. Sawyer went on to run the school board.

Staff and parents swiftly became suspicious of the bullying
manner of “Dr Marsh”, who left soon after in 2000. Sawyer
claimed Marsh had suffered a breakdown and he continued
running the board.

IBEP’s foreign ventures were not limited to Africa.
Derrick Pereira, UK chairman of Help A Poor Child (HAPC)
met Slade at Sawyer’s home in North London in 2005.
Mr Pereira was expecting to meet “Dr Marsh”, whom he
understood was a wealthy philanthropist author.

Slade let slip his real name. Mr Pereira picked up on the
gaffe but was told Slade preferred to use his pseudonym
as an author, which was allegedly acquired after a rich,
childless uncle made changing his name a condition of
inheriting.

In 1990, Slade and Sawyer had cofounded a publishing
company called Oriflamme, to publish educational textbooks
by Slade under the name of Edward Marsh.

Former victims organised a school reunion at St George’s
to get access to the building. In the attic, they found
a box of old photos, which helped confirm dates and put
names to faces.

HAPC for a time funded IBEP’s Anglo-Kutchi English
Medium School in Gujarat, India, for young earthquake
orphans. Labour MP Keith Vaz, Islington’s senior solicitor
in the early Eighties, and patron of HAPC, supported
fundraising for the school in his Leicester constituency.

A Labour councillor raised thousands for the school at
a dinner-dance Vaz attended. Slade visited Leicester
to be presented with donations by local children.

However, HAPC ended the association after Slade’s British
victims, who had sought each other out on the internet
and joined forces to try to expose him, alerted the charity.

Last week, Sawyer said: “I was not aware that Derek Slade
had obtained a false passport and not aware of the false
information he had given.”

Slade’s former pupil Alistair had read HAPC’s description of
its support for IBEP’s orphanage school, which mentioned
Slade, but Sawyer’s name was unfamiliar to him. When he
found a picture of him on the internet, Alistair recognised
Sawyer from visits to St George’s and felt sick.

The former victims organised a school reunion disco at
St George’s in order to get access to the building. In the
school attic, they found a box of old photos, which helped
confirm dates and put names to faces. They say they also
found an Eighties photo of Sawyer visiting the school.

In February 2007, HAPC announced on its website: “Recent
events, which we are unable to disclose at this time, made
his [Slade] position untenable.”

The charity says that it has since demanded that IBEP
return its funds and provide assurances about the children’s
safety. Derrick Pereira says that Sawyer has still not supplied
these.

Mr Pereira also says that concerned sources in Swaziland
eventually spotted HAPC’s website warning, and contacted
him. The charity’s delicate wording was understand able,
given the involvement of powerful Labour politicians with the
project.

The Africans asked, on a conference call, what the charity
knew about “Dr Edward Marsh”, Slade and Sawyer. Mr Pereira
says: “They were so shocked to be told that Marsh and Slade
were one and same man that they dropped the phone.”

The African investigation established Marsh’s passport fraud
from his visa details. Issued in London on September 25, 1998,
it was for an Edward Marsh born on May 31, 1947, in Derby,
two years before Slade was born in Southampton.

They scrutinised Slade’s fake CV as Marsh, which claimed
a first class BA degree from University College, Oxford, in
the Trinity term of 1969, and a BA Education from the
University of Birmingham via Saltley Teachers’ Training College,
on July 23, 1973.

At his end-of-terrace home, police found huge amounts
of child pornography and his fake passport

Slade actually graduated later and had no
teaching qualifications. Through Sawyer’s
company IBEP, a convicted child abuser was
able to work with vulnerable African children
having obtained money under false pretences.
Sawyer is a man who has acquired key positions
on bodies running the capital’s police, magistrates
and probation services. He represented all London’s
councils on the Metropolitan Police’s public safety board
and was made a trustee of two crime prevention youth
charities, including Catch 22, patron the Princess Royal (Princess Anne).

He is currently chair of the London Region Courts Board,
which works with Her Majesty’s Courts Service to achieve
effective and efficient administration of the courts.

On discovering his links to Slade, Ubombo Sugar removed
Sawyer from its school board, even placing a notice in
The Times of Swaziland in January 2009 making it clear that
the parting was not amicable. Mr Pereira remains furious that
through Sawyer, “a man at the heart of the British capital’s
justice system, (as a source described him) a dangerous child
abuser was protected and promoted.

A separate source in Swaziland told The Mail on Sunday
last week: “I hope Slade rots. There is no doubt as to the
closeness and longevity of his and Sawyer’s relationship.
It is said that in support of the application for “Marsh”
to come into Swaziland, Sawyer/IBEP presented a very
glowing CV with documents attached.”

The British police, who had met the group of victim
investigators, now knew Slade’s fake identity and
arrested him in England last February when he attended
a medical appointment as Edward Marsh.

At his end-of-terrace home in Burton-on-Trent,
Staffordshire, police found huge amounts of child
pornography, and his fake passport.

There were more than 70,000 images of children,
some apparently African and Indian. Almost 5,000
were eventually judged indecent.

Police also found audio tapes Slade had made of boys
being beaten and boxes of explicit material. About 50
new witnesses came forward after Slade’s arrest,
including former pupils who now have senior defence
forces roles.

Before his six-week trial, Slade offered to plead
guilty to the indecency, assault and child pornography
charges, if the three witnesses describing rape backed
down. His trial would then have been a brief formality,
gone unreported and protected his friends. But all
witnesses refused.

At his trial, Slade admitted 15 offences of indecent
assault and five of actual bodily harm, and denied
but was found guilty of six additional offences of
assault, four indecent assaults and three serious
sexual assaults. They were sample offences, many
more are suspected.

Slade also pleaded guilty to 16 charges of making
indecent images of children, possession of almost
4,500 indecent images of children and being in
possession of a false passport. When he was sentenced,
a dozen of his victims were present. They applauded the
judge and jury.

One said afterwards that they persisted with the
prosecution in order to show that “the bad guys
don’t always win”.

Shortly after Slade’s arrest, Sawyer dissolved IBEP,
the accounts of which are peppered with large financial
transactions involving the fictitious “Edward Marsh”, and
wrote to Help A Poor Child to demand it stop linking his
name with Slade’s on their website, as this was “damaging”
to him. It has not yet done so.

Detective Inspector Adrian Randall, who headed Slade’s
18-month investigation, says that police enquiries are
continuing.

In response to The Mail on Sunday’s allegations, Derek Sawyer
said: “I have been very shocked by Derek Slade’s conviction for
child abuse. The revelations which emerged during the court
hearings have been very disturbing.”

“I am glad that justice has been done and has seemed
to be done by his many victims. Like many others I have
been taken in by Mr Slade and have been used by him.”
