Colin Gregg, “Sophisticated, Predatory Paedophile”, Former Boss of one of Britain’s Biggest Royal (Children’s) Charities, Convicted of Molesting Boys

 Convicted paedophile Colin Gregg lodges appeal against his child sex conviction

Disgraced Gregg was handed a 13-and-a-half sentence after being found guilty of molesting young boys

Apr 1 2017

Disgraced headteacher Colin Gregg has launched an appeal against his conviction and sentence for child sex charges.

The millionaire son of the Gregg’s bakery founder was found guilty of nine counts of indecently assaulting four victims.

A court heard how the 75-year-old charity boss molested the boys, who were aged between 11 and 14, from the early 1960s until the 1990s.

The abuse was carried out in a swimming pool, in a car and at his home gym.

Branding him a “sophisticated, predatory paedophile” Judge Robin Mairs jailed Gregg for 13-and-a-half years at Newcastle Crown Court.

Now, it is understood that Gregg has lodged an appeal against both his conviction and sentence.

Northumbria Police has urged any other victims of Gregg to come forward.

DS Chris Wilson, who led the investigation, said: “The victims in this case showed immense bravery to come forward and stand up in court to give the evidence that ultimately put their abuser through court.

“It was a terrifying ordeal for them but their actions have helped convict a predatory paedophile and I am sure that convictions such as this will help encourage other victims of sexual abuse to come forward.

FERGIE CHARITY MAN CHARGED.

7 July 1996

The former boss, Colin Gregg,  of one of Britain’s biggest Royal charities has been charged with indecently assaulting a boy of 14.

Colin Gregg, 55, ex-administrator of the Yellow Brick Road charity, was arrested after the teenager told his parents he’d been interfered with following a golf club trip.

He has been bailed to appear before magistrates at Newcastle upon Tyne next month.

The married father-of-three, who was arrested on April 25, had his home in Newcastle searched and a computer disc removed by members of Northumbria Police’s Child Protection Department.

The boy is believed to have told police he was also interfered with in a sauna by Mr Gregg after a cross-country run.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/local-news/chilling-report-abuse-cruelty-feversham-1350428

THE charity responsible for a Tyneside school at the centre of a child abuse scandal says it does not know who was in charge of the youngsters.

As revealed in the Chronicle, two former care workers were jailed for abusing their positions to steal the childhoods of vulnerable pupils at Feversham Special School.

The charity Mind was the residential school’s custodian trustee, looking after assets but not running the facility for emotionally and behaviorally-disturbed children, aged from six to 19.

And Mind boss Paul Farmer has admitted he has no idea who was actually in charge of the now-closed special school, where predatory paedophiles Kevin Brown and John Leslie Duncan worked as carers.

The school, owned by the charity Mind, – warnings about the abuse were  ignored.

The charity Mind acted as the residential school’s custodian trustee, looking after assets but not running the facility.

A board of governors managed the school, but Mind says it kept no record of their names.

Mind’s chief executive Paul Farmer said: “We are deeply shocked and saddened by the abuse that took place at Feversham.

“Mind was the custodian trustee of the property from which the school was run and was not involved with day-to-day running of the school.

“Mind is no longer involved with any residential educational establishments.”

The Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, have been affiliated with another convicted establishment paedophile – Jeffrey Epstein

Roberts has claimed she had sex three times with Andrew in 2001, including during a group sex session with eight other girls at Jeffrey Epstein’s home in the Virgin Islands.

Roberts has alleged that girls as young as 12 were regularly flown on the £30 million jet to locations around the world where Epstein (and other members of the elite) would abuse them.

‘I abhor paedophilia and any sexual abuse of children and know that this was a gigantic error of judgment on my behalf.

‘I am just so contrite I cannot say. Whenever I can I will repay the money and will have nothing ever to do with Jeffrey Epstein ever again…

Nurse tells of Jimmy Savile’s visits to Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary

Jimmy Savile meets seven year old Lee Claffey of Eastwood Gardens Kenton Newcastle who was visiting the Royal Victoria Infirmary to have his broken arm checked. 7th June 1986

‘Jimmy Savile visited the children’s wards of the Royal Victoria Infirmary in 1986/1987 and 1991.

He (Savile) also visited Newcastle General Hospital in the early 1990s but witnesses were unsure of exact dates

Nurse Phil Brown remembers encountering the disgraced radio and TV presenter in May 1987 at ward 16 south where youngsters were receiving treatment for leukaemia. Today he is calling on hospital chiefs at the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to let the public know the exact dates of his visits.

He also claimed Savile was formally invited into the building.

A spokesperson for the trust said senior staff were taking the disgraced star’s alleged visits to the Royal Victoria Infirmary very seriously.

However, on Saturday a statement from Sir Leonard Fenwick, trust chief executive, said no concerns had so far been expressed by staff working at the time.

Mr Brown, a nurse for 37 years, said: “Jimmy Savile visited ward 16 south where children had leukaemia.

“It was in June 1987 and a pivotal weekend because it was the Great North Run. I have rung the NSPCC and police involved in Operation Yewtree as speaking as a nurse, I am dismayed. I’m not the only one who remembers him visiting.

“The moment it came out that he had been in Newcastle I informed the RVI. So far I think they’ve got their dates wrong. People need to be aware he visited in 1987.

He appeared to be in Newcastle for the Great North Run but for whatever reason he was able to visit the RVI.”

Have police questioned who was in charge of that ward when Savile was invited to RVI?

Prof Sir Alan Craft launches scathing attack on new North East hospital

 

  • 26 Jun 2013

ONE of the country’s leading experts on childhood medicine has launched a scathing attack on plans to build a specialist emergency hospital in the North East.

But in an unprecedented attack Prof Sir Alan Craft, former president of Royal College of Paediatrics, said the proposals for the restructuring of children’s services in the region was concerning.

Prof Craft, a consultant paediatrician based at the RVI, and his wife, Anne, children’s nurse and director of nursing and former health visitor for North Tyneside, sent a letter to The Journal outlining their views.

Another RVI doctor –Dr Camille De San Lazaro

Lazaro began work as a forensic paediatrician at the Lindisfarne Centre in the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle in 1989 following the Cleveland sex abuse inquiry. This was the first post of its kind in the country.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/just-how-bad-can-doctor-1576127

Lord Justice Kennedy told the court that in the 2002 libel trial, the doctor had been “completely discredited” in relation to her handling of a number of allegations of sexual abuse prior to February, 1995.

2002 –

Calls were today made for a review after a North East man had his conviction for raping a boy overturned because of the evidence of Dr Camille San Lazaro.

Dawn Reed and Chris Lillie

Dawn Reed and Christopher Lillie

Dr Lazaro, senior lecturer and consultant paediatrician at Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary and Newcastle University was criticised for her role in the investigation into” false” claims of abuse at a Newcastle nursery by Dawn Reed and Christopher Lillie.

The pair were accused in a Newcastle City Council report of systematic sex abuse of dozens of children at a Newcastle nursery. But Mr Justice Eady declared them innocent of all charges and condemned the report as a legal `shambles.’

...supplying children to a paedophile ring whose members had raped and abused their young victims, and used them in the making of child pornography.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/abuse-cases-doc-face-probe-1603253

Her evidence has been blamed for Kevin Brown’s conviction. He has served his seven-year sentence for raping the five-year-old boy.

Brown’s first appeal was dismissed in 1997 but his case was referred back to the Appeal Court by the Criminal Cases Review Commission which investigates claims of miscarriages of justice. The CCRC obtained three medical reports, including one from a doctor at the forefront of the 1987 Cleveland Child Sex Abuse Inquiry, that suggested injuries to the boy may not have been caused by a sexual act. Ruling the conviction unsafe, Lord Justice Kennedy said medical evidence at the trial had been oversimplified to the detriment of the defence. He added that a large part of the prosecution case at trial had been reliant on evidence from Dr San Lazaro.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/abuse-cases-doc-face-probe-1603253

Looks as though Lazaro was a ringer to ruin any sex-abuse cases.

The Yellow Brick Road charity became The Children’s Foundation – headed by Prince Andrew as Patron


“We have not received any evidence since the conviction that there are any further victims of Colin Greggs who have not yet reported abuse to us.

“However, if there are victims out there then we will listen to them and we will believe them regardless of whether the abuse is recent or of a historical nature.

“These sorts of offences are not, and nor have they ever been, acceptable behaviour and national media stories over the last few years should provide reassurance of that to any victims out there.

“Safeguarding vulnerable victims of crime is our absolute priority and if there are other victims out there then we would encourage them to come forward. We will believe you.”

Gregg helped set up the family business and also worked as a charity fundraiser, a social worker and as a headteacher at a prestigious North East school.

Gregg, of Homefarm Steading, in Gosforth, Newcastle, claimed he was the victim of a police witch-hunt and alleged the complainants were looking for compensation.

But last month a jury at Leeds Crown Court found him guilty of sexually abusing young boys.

As well as 13-and-a-half years in prison, Gregg has been banned from working with children and was ordered to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/convicted-paedophile-colin-gregg-lodges-12827854#ICID=sharebar_twitter

Colin Gregg was employed in the children’s department of Newcastle Council as a social worker where csa was rampant.

Gregg taught at Durham School, a school in Newcastle’s west end before moving to Newcastle City Council’s children’s department as a social worker. He then became the headmaster at Tynemouth King’s School.

The court heard Gregg was a former headteacher in Tynemouth, and Talbot House school, and also taught at Durham School, as well as being employed in the children’s department of Newcastle Council as a social worker.

During this time he operated a running club from his home at Homefarm Steading, Gosforth.

The other allegations are said to have taken place between 1988-91, at locations including Gregg’s home gymnasium.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2808603/greggs-bakery-heir-sexually-abused-string-of-young-boys-in-his-home-gym-and-swimming-pool/

Sasha Wass QC, defending, asked Carol Gregg: “Knowing the allegations, has it caused you any concern that Mr Gregg has contact with your grandchildren?”

The former nursery nurse replied: “Not at all.”

When asked if Gregg’s three daughters have concerns leaving him with their children, Mrs Gregg replied “no”.

The court also heard from Gregg’s former colleague Andy James, who he worked with at Talbot House school in Newcastle.

When asked how the former head teacher interacted with the pupils, Mr James said: “He was highly regarded by the boys who thought the world of him.

“The staff thought he was an innovator with new ideas, which all the children seemed to respond to very positively.”

Ms Wass then asked Mr James if he was concerned by Gregg’s behaviour towards the children.

He replied: “No, not at all.”

Mr James went on to say: “He is very dedicated to young people becoming better people, particularly those coming from deprived backgrounds.”

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/colin-greggs-wife-tells-crown-12619655

The first complainant, now in his 60s, claims Gregg sexually assaulted when he was aged 13 while he was at boarding school.

At the time Gregg was involved with the charity TOC H, a Christian charity.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2808603/greggs-bakery-heir-sexually-abused-string-of-young-boys-in-his-home-gym-and-swimming-pool/

Doing the math….abuse happened approx 47 yrs ago – 47 yrs ago was 1970 – so Colin Gregg was probably  involved in the TOC H charity in the 70’s – when Jimmy Savile was also involved.

Gregg molested a young boy while he worked as a running coach, a court has heard

In 1989, Gregg became the director of children’s charity the Yellow Brick Road Fund.

During this time he operated a running club from his home at Homefarm Steading, Gosforth.

The runs would start and finish at Gregg’s house at the time, on Linden Road in Gosforth.

Chris Peacock’s cancer was treated by Professor Alan Craft and this year (2013), as in the 20 previous years, he will be taking part in the Children’s Cancer Run.

Chris bounced back from his brush with death and went to The King’s School in Tynemouth, where, at the age of eight, he discovered a passion for running. The then headmaster, Colin Gregg, a member of the famous bakery family, found out about his cancer and decided to set up a fundraising run in Gosforth Park in which his school and others could take part.

RVI Children’s Cancer Research Unit/Run Dr Alan Craft
 sponsored by Greggs

FEB 2013

As well as the five-mile run there will be a Mini one-mile run for the under sevens who must be accompanied by an adult.

The Children’s Cancer Research Unit at the Royal Victoria Infirmary has just taken on two new recruits, pathologist Dr David Ellison, and cancer expert Dr Steve Clifford, to find ways of improving survival rates.

But the pair will only be able to carry out the research if this year’s Children’s Cancer Run is a success and raises at least #150,000. (extortion)

 “The staff on Ward 12 are second to none and we owe them – especially Prof Alan Craft – everything.”

The run is on May 13, at Gypsies Green, the Leas, South Shields.

The event is being sponsored by Greggs the Bakers which will provide a picnic for all runners.

Sacred Heart Church in Gosforth to celebrate centenary

8 May 2012

The church was given a major refurbishment after the arrival, in 1984, of Irishman, Father Tom Cass and while the works were carried out, services were held in a prefabricated building, which became known as Uncle Toms Cabin.

On one occasion, Father Cass persuaded Jimmy Savile, still wearing running gear after completing the Great North Run, to appear at the summer fair. He also once recognised the Irish singer Dana in the congregation and brought her to the altar to sing the final hymn.

The church has a link with Newcastles St Cuthberts boys school, now called now St Cuthberts High School, which itself celebrated its 130th anniversary last year. The present Parish Priest, Father Jim Dunne, was the last of several members of the clergy to teach at the school.

Savile was a regular visitor to the Great North Run

NO EVIDENCE: Jimmy Savile at the Great North Run in 2000

 Jimmy Savile at the Great North Run in 2000

26 Jun 2014

 JIMMY Savile visited hospitals on Tyneside on three occasions, visits which coincided with the celebrity’s regular appearances at the Great North Run.

But a report  found no evidence of any inappropriate behaviour during Savile’s time in Newcastle’s hospitals.

An investigation by the Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was triggered by a former member of staff, who contacted Operation Yewtree detectives after recalling seeing Savile at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in 1991.

The investigation found that Savile had visited the RVI’s children’s wards twice between 1986 and 1991 and had also visited Newcastle General Hospital during the early 1990s.

Trust chief executive Sir Leonard Fenwick said: “Jimmy Savile visited the children’s wards of the Royal Victoria Infirmary in 1986/1987 and 1991.

“He also visited Newcastle General Hospital in the early 1990s, but witnesses were unsure of exact dates.

“…these presentations appeared to coincide with the Great North Run. ”.

Savile, famous for his charity fundraising, took part in the Great North Run at least 18 times and was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2009.

Asked by The Northern Echo in 2000 if he had a message for the people of the North-East ahead of the run, Savile said: “Lock up your daughters, girlfriends and wives. I don’t want to misbehave b 2007 with ut I can’t help it once I arrive on Tyneside.”

^ Tony Blair, Alistair Campbell  and Bill Clinton- both Blair and Campbell were in billionaire convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s black book (Clinton took many trips on Epstein’s “Lolita Express”)

Epstein had assembled a powerful network of contacts encompassing the worlds of politics, business, royalty and celebrity and even Bill Clinton.

The inclusion of Lord Mandelson and an office address for Tony Blair has raised questions about the extent of his relationship with the Labour government.

But last night – some 48 hours after the link between Epstein and Lord Mandelson emerged – the former Labour spin doctor was still refusing to comment about his dealings with the disgraced billionaire.

 

Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland)November 13, 2000

THE Prime Minister’s official spokesman was quizzed by police over the murder of TV presenter Jill Dando, it was revealed yesterday.

Alastair Campbell, one of Tony Blair’s closest aides and friends, met officers so they could eliminate him from their inquiries.

He was interviewed after a newspaper wrongly claimed he had joked about being Jill’s lover.

…in April 1999 but officers felt obliged to interview him.

Campbell said he had met her when he reviewed the papers on her breakfast TV show.

He also said: “I believe the police had a number of calls pointing out my resemblance to their e-fit picture of the killer.”

Clark scandal descends into tales of blackmail and lechery

1994

THE SEX SCANDAL involving Alan Clark, the wife of a former judge and her two daughters degenerated further last night with allegations of blackmail and indecent exposure.

Jane Clark, wife of the former defence minister, accused Valerie Harkess, 57, and her daughter Josephine, 34, of demanding pounds 100,000 to keep allegations that Mr Clark seduced them and Josephine’s sister, Alison, out of the newspapers.

Mrs Harkess and her 64- year-old husband, James, a former deputy circuit judge, denounced the blackmail allegation as ‘an absolute lie’. Her daughter accused Mr Clark of betraying her family’s trust by indecently exposing himself to her and Alison when they were 13 and 15.

Son of Greggs bakery founder, 75, is jailed for 13 and a half years for indecently assaulting four young boys

Mar 30 2017

  • Colin Gregg, 75, is the son of the founder of the popular Greggs bakery chain
  • Gregg had been convicted of nine counts of indecent assault against four boys
  • He was jailed for 13 and a half years and described as a ‘predatory paedophile’

‘Your defence was the complainants were fantasists and liars. The jury heard their evidence, given with clarity and considerable courage.

‘They found the lies were on your part and the fantasies were you sexual desires for young boys.’ 

He showed no remorse, emotion or expression as he stood in the dock to learn his fate.

GUILTY: Colin Gregg trial jury returns guilty verdicts to nine counts of historic sex abuse

Former head teacher Colin Gregg has been found guilty of nine counts of indecently assaulting four boys.

A jury at Leeds Crown Court deliberated for 11 hours and 43 minutes before reaching eight majority verdicts and one unanimous verdict.

Gregg, of Homefarm Steading, in Gosforth, Newcastle, remained emotionless in the dock as the verdicts were read out by the jury foreman.

Judge Robin Mairs told the married grandfather that he would be sentenced at a later date.

Prosecutors said on the surface Gregg lived a life of decency but in reality he “concealed his true nature beneath a veneer of respectability” and he “exploited his position in society to perpetrate abuse”.

Gregg was granted bail and will be sentenced at Newcastle Crown Court on March 30 at 2pm.

The jury found Gregg guilty by a majority on eight of the counts and unanimously on the ninth.

Judge Robin Mairs told him that the fact he was granting bail was no indication of sentence.

He said: “These are serious matters and a custodial sentence is inevitable.”

The trial at Leeds was a retrial.

A jury failed to reach a verdict when Gregg was tried last year in Newcastle.

15 April 2016

Former head teacher, employed in the children’s department of Newcastle Council as a social worker, charity boss Colin Gregg, denies 26 indecent assault charges dating from the 1960s to the 1990s, relating to nine complainants aged between 11 and 15.

Assault said to have taken place between January 1963 and December 1991

in County Durham,

Newcastle

Seghill and Alnmouth, both in Northumberland

on the premises of schools where he worked, in a dormitory and in a school swimming pool.

Newcastle Crown Court was told the married father-of-three, who became wealthy after helping the family business to grow, has a ‘strong determination to sexually abuse little boys’ and there was a pattern to his offending.

Gregg was also a sports (running) coach.

A court heard Gregg, son of the founder of Gregg’s the bakers, was a biology and chemistry teacher at prestigious Durham School and the complainant was a pupil.

He told jurors at Newcastle Crown Court he was molested in Gregg’s study at the school and in his car.

The complainant said he joined Durham School as a boarder in the 1960s and claimed he was abused within months.

Gregg, of Gosforth, Newcastle, denies all the charges, and his position is that ‘each and every one of the complainants is telling calculated and deliberate lies’, Paul Greaney QC, prosecuting, told the jury.



Gregg trained as a teacher and taught at prestigious Durham School, which he had attended as a boy,
the court heard.

A FORMER pupil at a school where Colin Gregg taught told a court he was sexually assaulted by him in a swimming pool.

The man, now in his 60s, says Gregg put his hand inside his swimming trunks while helping him to improve his breast stroke at prestigious Durham School.

Jurors were told the alleged offence in the swimming pool on the grounds of the school is said to have happened in the 1960s, when Gregg was a biology teacher.

Early days:

In 1967 he joined the family business which was started by his father John Robson Gregg (freemason) in 1939, when it was still a ‘modest outfit’

Gregg worked with his brother Ian Gregg for three years
and the pair ‘created a very successful and large business which, in due course, became the public limited company Greggs plc‘, Mr Greaney said.

‘As a result of the growth in his family business, the defendant became a wealthy man.’

1969:  Gregg returned to teaching, taking a job at St Aloysius, after realising “business wasn’t really for me”
St Aloysius a Roman Catholic -boys-only state school in the London Borough of Islington, North London.

“At the age of about 29, having made a success of his life in business in three short years, Colin Gregg returned to what seems to have been his main interest in life, namely working with children

The prosecution said Gregg will claim the allegations against him were motivated by people trying to win compensation.

In 1970 he returned to working with children but continued to work for the bakery during the holidays and remained a board member.

The following year he became a social worker (1971), then became head of Talbot House, (formerly Feversham), a school for what he termed ‘delinquent children’, the court heard.

Vile abuse of children at a Tyneside special school has not been included in the first phase of investigations planned by an independent inquiry into child sex abuse.

Ex-Feversham residential school staff jailed for sexual abuse of vulnerable boys
Kevin Brown and John Leslie Duncan who have been jailed for historic sex crimes

John Leslie Duncan, 61, from Gateshead, and Kevin Brown, 58, who was already in jail, were convicted of the abuse they committed against young boys in their care.

The charges related to incidents that took place throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s
Duncan was convicted of 15 charges, which included 10 counts of indecent assault on a male and three counts of indecency with a child, and sentenced to 15 years in prison.

His crimes were committed as he worked at Shotley Park Childrens’ Home in Durham and at the Feversham residential school in Walbottle, Newcastle, both of which have since closed.

Brown was sentenced to six years on top of his current eight-year sentence after being convicted of seven charges, all relating to incidents at Feversham school too.

The report, by Annie Bishop, then inspector for children’s services, was the last time an outsider had observed the controversial school in the Walbottle area before its closure in March 1997.

The charity Mind acted as the residential school’s custodian trustee, looking after assets but not running the facility.

A board of governors managed the school, but Mind says it kept no record of their names.

Mind’s chief executive Paul Farmer said: “We are deeply shocked and saddened by the abuse that took place at Feversham.

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/local-news/feversham-school-sex-abuse-suspects-1352535

Hon Lowell Goddard, chairman of the long-running Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA), announced what would be included in the first phase of investigations into the extent to which institutions have failed to protect children from sexual abuse.

He later became head of the junior school at King’s School, Tynemouth, and in 1989 became director and administrator of a children’s charity (THE CHILDRENS’ FOUNDATION LIMITED (02528291)) which raised substantial sums.

‘On the surface, he has lived a life of decency, indeed one of distinction,’ Mr Greaney said opening the case.

He said the prosecution case was that Gregg was a child abuser, regularly molesting boys, in a breach of trust.

The complainants,
now aged from their 30s to their 60s, were aged 10 to 15 at the time, the jury was told.


As well as the nine complainants
which the charges relate to, the court will hear evidence from three others who claim they were abused.

Greggs’ CEOs involved with Prince Charles…via BITC and through the Prince’s trust (Sir Michael Darrington)

Prince Praises Greggs’ Work in Community

May 22, 2003

The head of North-East bakery Greggs has won Prince Charles’s praise for his work in taking business into the community.

Mike Darrington was presented with the prince’s Ambassador Award yesterday at a Business in the Community event for his personal contribution to responsible business practice, through the work of the Greggs Trust, fund-raising and other activities such as the Greggs Breakfast Club.

Sir Michael Darrington ex-CEO of Greggs (ran it for 24yrs) works with the Prince’s Trust

By 1983, after growing his family’s chain of bakeries from just one to 300, Ian Gregg stepped down from his role as managing director and handed the mantle to Michael Darrington.

Ian attributes the success of Greggs during the 1980s and 90s to Darrington, who was awarded a knighthood in 2004 in recognition of his services to business and to the community in the North East.

Mike Darrington  joined Greggs in 1983 as Group Managing Director.

Sir Michael Darrington :

Education: Lancing College, Harvard Business School

Lancing College – alma mater of the Peter Ball and his brother Michael Ball, Trevor Huddleston & Tom Driberg
Headteacher James Woodhouse from Lancing College wrote in support of Ball

Sir Michael Darrington :

Newcastle University – executive member

University of Sunderland – Sir Michael received an Honorary Doctorate of Business Administration.

Sir Michael set up the Pro Business Against Greed campaign, urging firms to tame excessive pay for leaders and make companies – and society – fairer. (that’s “rich”)

Mike Darrington takes a long term view of developing a business. He is a keen supporter of ethics in business – by putting Values at the heart of the organisation he believed that Greggs people would make a positive difference for themselves, their customers and the wider community – he is also an enthusiastic advocate of the ‘ enjoy ‘ word.

Mike believes that although companies are owned by shareholders, they should also be for the benefit of staff, customers and the wider society.

After previous significant involvements with the CBI Confederation of British Industry and BITC Business in the Community, he is now engaged in a number of charitable activities, including the Prince’s Trust, and also with community projects and campaigning for a fairer society.

Greggs –  In 2008, we made pledges to the Prince of Wales MayDay Network (a BITC Business in the Community Programme):

Among the initiatives already under way, BITC has started a series of The Prince
of Wales’s “Seeing Is Believing” visits to Burnley, and as one result alone, Greggs,
Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s are backing breakfast clubs in 15 of the
most needy primary schools in Burnley for a minimum of three years.

Greggs and Asda are also supporting the Burnley SPACE youth Bus, working in
partnership with the police, which is deployed to different parts of the town
to provide advice, support and leisure facilities for young people.

19 November 2015

An innovative youth project in Burnley which provides support for disadvantaged youngsters has been awarded £115,000 by Children in Need.

The cash will be allocated to the Space Youth Bus over the next three years to fund six part-time staff members and the running of the bus, which provides a free, safe, friendly environment for young people between seven and 20.

INCLUDED in Greggs‘ latest financial results was the news that the baker had created a full time job for one of the homeless people it has been working with.

The Newcastle-based company is signed up to a Business Action on Homelessness project that was launched almost a year ago under the Business in the Community (BITC) banner, and run by Newcastle charity the Cyrenians with pounds 250,000 in funding from the Northern Rock Foundation.

As one of the lead businesses involved, Greggs supplies mentors and work placements for people on the Ready For Work scheme, which aims to get people back into the world of employment after they have been homeless.

Since the scheme started last September, 38 people have been placed with companies in the region, which along with Greggs also includes the likes of M&S, KPMG, NRG, Sage, Carillion and Barclays Bank. Of the placements, 31 completed their work experience and 22 have secured employment.

Greggs chief executive Ken McMeikan said: “This was reviewed at Business in the Community and the North East scheme is the national leader for the number of work placements who then go on to secure employment.

McMeikan’s interest in working with homeless people originally arose after he attended the Prince of Wales Seeing is Believing programme in London.

Organised by BITC, the project takes business leaders out to see homelessness first hand on the streets of the capital.

Dr Michael Toman – principal of Feversham in 1996 – Feversham closed in Mar 1997

1996 -2000 – Director Gregg at Feversham/Talbot House Trust

Appointed on 15 November 1996
Resigned on 31 March 2000

July 1996 – the last inspection of Feversham, by Newcastle City Council’s social services department

1997: Gregg stood trial in 1997 and was acquitted of abusing one of those three, the court heard. The other two complainants came forward after publicity about that case but it was decided those allegations should not proceed to trial.

Dec 1996 – Feversham principal is Dr Michael Toman (so Gregg was director at Feversham when Dr Michael Toman was there)

6 December, 1996 (Last Updated: 11 May, 2008)

Feversham is the only residential school in Newcastle upon Tyne for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. It mops up the violent and disruptive pupils other schools cannot cope with and provides care for those whose families are also in crisis or unable to contain them.

Wonder then, at a time when society is crying out for Something To Be Done about disaffected pupils, that Feversham is closing down at Christmas.

It is closing because the region’s local education authorities will no longer give a long-term commitment to the school. Northumberland in particular, which is creating 90 special education places through pupil referral units, has said the 22 children it currently places in the school could fall to as few as six next year.

“Overnight we became uneconomical. Northumberland put the nail in the coffin,” says Dr Michael Toman, Feversham’s principal.There are 37 children aged between six and 13 attending Feversham, an independent establishment set up by MIND, the mental health charity, in the late 1960s to cater for almost twice that number.

Situated on the western edge of Newcastle, it is a low, spacious, modern building, comfortable and well-equipped, set in ample grounds with all the living and school accommodation ranged around the central dining hall. It is run on tolerant, therapeutic principles and aims to re-integrate children back into mainstream education and with their families.

“Our record is good,” says Dr Toman. “One-third of our children return to mainstream school, one-third go on to day special school and only one-third require further senior boarding provision.” A girl with learning difficulties who had suffered sexual abuse was excluded from her special school because she injured a teacher. Another with cerebral palsy was excluded from her special school for the same reason. Children come with bad dreams and chronic bed-wetting, the classic sign of inner turmoil. But these often clear up after time at Feversham.

Michael Toman argues that no matter how many pupil referral units local authorities provide, there will always be children needing residential education. The weekly boarding offered by Feversham provides stability and security, and often helps keep families “who hang by a thread” together. The school employs a social worker to work with families directly.

Staff constantly praise the positives in pupils and challenge the negatives. “When kids come to us they hate school. They hate teachers and so do their parents. We turn that on its head,” says Michael Toman. Children are on first-name terms with teachers and the ethos is one of tolerance and encouragement. “If we stopped every time we got a kick, a punch or a ‘Fuck-off’, we wouldn’t get beyond breakfast. We don’t approve or condone it, but that is the reality. It might sound woolly and liberal but we do challenge them. We just choose our battlegrounds.

“Violence comes from frustration and an inability to communicate, so we give our kids a language that enables them to express their feelings. They learn to listen to other people’s point of view.”

Every week Feversham holds whole-school and group meetings where staff and children review the week’s events and praise or criticise each other. Children have to learn to be the focus of attention.

“These are children who have previously wrecked classrooms and attacked teachers,” says Michael Toman. “They have to learn to sit down and hear other pupils say how horrible they’ve been. This is what group living is all about. Our greatest strength is that we offer consistency of approach over a 24-hour period. A day school cannot provide this.”

Classrooms are colourful and intimate, with a teacher and assistant for every eight pupils. Staff are trained to anticipate and deflect aggression, and how to hold a child who is being violent so nobody is seriously hurt.

Teachers
grow used to verbal abuse one minute and requests for hugs the next. They put in a lot of their own time, taking out pupils who have achieved or been “especially sensible” on a one-to-one basis for trips to McDonald’s or Newcastle’s Metroland. Lorraine Brewis, who teaches the youngest group, says: “They love that special attention. You are more than just a teacher to them. When they have had a bad day they might call you everything from a pig to a dog but when they have calmed down they apologise. They feel so much better if they can do that, it’s a socialising process.

“The children are anxious and disturbed by the closure. It’s a bad time for them. We will all end up with other jobs, but what will happen to them?” Eileen Chapman, a single mother whose only child, David, has been at Feversham for the past two years, says her son “sat and broke his heart” when he learned of the closure. “‘What’s going to happen to me now?’ that’s what he asked.” David, who is 12, was disruptive at middle school and his mother could not cope with him. He spent a short time in foster care. “He would storm out and not come back for hours. There has been a 110 per cent improvement in the past year. I didn’t want him to board but it has been right for him and given me a break,” she says.

Richard and Jacqueline Leightley are concerned for their son Paul, who may have to go to residential school in the Lake District, far from their north-east home. Paul was expelled from his first school at five but has made progress at Feversham. The couple, who are on income support with three other children, are unhappy at the prospect of him being so far away.

Michael Toman is convinced that authorities such as Northumberland will be unable to reduce substantially their need for residential placements. Although Feversham costs Pounds 24,000 per pupil for weekly boarding for 40 weeks of the year, he argues that this is cheap compared to the cost of the family breakdown, police involvement, care and secure units that can follow if children are inadequately catered for at a young age.

Independent residential schools such as Feversham have been out of favour because of some notorious cases of mismanagement and abuse, and because of an emphasis on integration into the community. But Michael Toman believes the pendulum must now swing back. “We are the safety valve. No matter how many PRUs the LEAs open – and the Ridings episode is just the tip of the iceberg – they will fill them and still end up wondering what to do with our sort of kids. They’ll have to send them further afield. Northumberland is looking at schools in the Lake District. Authorities are now panicking about our closure.”

DRAWING THE NATIONAL PICTURE

Despite all the publicity now surrounding disaffected pupils there has been no national survey in the past 20 years on the provision for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

However, the trustees of Shotton Hall, a pioneer EBD school which closed two years ago, have funded research by the University of Birming-ham’s school of education.

Researchers found that from 1987 to March this year, the number of approved independent schools fell by half, from 76 to 35, while the number of local authority EBD schools fell by about 15 per cent. In the first three months of the research alone, seven such schools closed. Head of research John Visser says although some “dross” has gone, “we have lost some very good schools in the past five years”.

The school of education runs the only EBD training course in the country and says it is turning teachers away who want to qualify – at a time when need is greater than ever.

The average annual cost per pupil of an EBD residential school is Pounds 25,000 to Pounds 30,000. Although many of those inspected by OFSTED are classed as failing or needing special measures, John Visser believes the inspectors apply the criteria too rigidly. “If you have had children who have been chucked out of other EBD schools, some of whom have already served custodial sentences and you are keeping them on site, in class and getting them interested in life, death and the universe, you might not be following key stage 3 of the national curriculum to the letter, but you will be achieving a great deal.

“I support the need for residential EBD provision but there has been no research into what is good or effective. That is what I am engaged in.”

These figures are taken from an article by John Visser and Ted Cole for the next issue of the Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties journal entitled : “An Overview of English Special School Provision for Children with Emotional and Behaviour Difficulties.” Contact Alan Rimmer on 01622 843104

TEACHER IN ‘BARE BOTTOM’ PICTURE SCANDAL RESIGNS; Dad Claims Staff Took Snaps of Child’s Behind

July 4, 2009

A HEADTEACHER has resigned amid an investigation into practices at his school where it is alleged he allowed staff to photograph a child’s bare bottom.

Dr Michael Toman, head of Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn in Denbigh for the past 10 years, has been on restricted duties for the last 10 months pending the probe.

He announced his resignation last night after being removed from his job along with the school’s child protection coordinator in September.

It comes after the father of a severely autistic child claimed staff kept an 18-month “neglect diary” on his child, who cannot speak, and took photographs of the child’s bare bottom.

He alleged employees at the regional centre of excellence for children with autistic spectrum disorders took the photos without parental consent, and without informing social services.

An independent inquiry was launched by the education authority and bosses at Denbighshire County Council but a report into their findings has been heavily delayed.

At the time, police also confirmed they were investigating a string of staff e-mails raising child protection concerns at the school.

Dr Toman will leave his position at the end of August to “pursue new challenges”, the council said yesterday.

It is not yet known when the report will be completed but the father of the child at the centre of the investigation said he was told it could be a matter of weeks.

Last night, a Denbighshire County Council spokesman said: “Dr Toman had been placed on restricted duties whilst complaints relating to alleged breaches of procedure were investigated. …

www.questia.com/article/1G1-202982049/teacher-in-bare-bottom-picture-scandal-resigns

POLICE and social services officers have confirmed that they are investigating child protection concerns at a North Wales school for children with autism.

Officers were called in to investigate emails from a concerned member of staff at Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn in Denbigh late last week.

The move comes after a series of controversies concerning the school, widely regarded as a regional centre of excellence for children with autism spectrum disorders.

Six weeks ago the school’s headteacher Michael Toman was suspended from duties amid a local educational authority (LEA) inquiry into a complaint made by a pupil’s parents.

Two weeks later other parents of children at the school staged a protest at county hall in Ruthin.

Two days later the LEA temporarily replaced Dr Toman with acting headteacher Richard Williams.

Then it was revealed that a 34-page inspection report by the Care Standards Social Inspectorate for Wales (CSSIW) had identified 21 shortfalls in meeting national minimum standards of care in the residential section of Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn.

Now, a member of staff at the school has emailed the Evening Leader claiming they have been threatened with the sack if they speak out about the school’s management.

“Everyone is too scared to speak out.” said one female worker at the school.

She said morale was “very low” and added: “There are some very good dedicated staff at the school who have received no support in their work with what can be very challenging children.”

Last night a North Wales Police spokesman said: “We can confirm that e-mail correspondence relating to child protection concerns at Ysgol Brondyffryn are currently the subject of joint investigation by Denbighshire Social Services and the Police.”

www.careappointments.co.uk/care-news/wales/item/4963-Police%20Probe%20Child%20Protection%20Concerns%20At%20A%20North%20Wales%20Autism%20School

Dr Toman joined the school in 1997 and he has since been instrumental in leading a team that transformed the school from being a special school into a modern, regional centre for autistic students.”

www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/inquiry-denbigh-headteacher-resigns-2782492

Last year, a group of parents held a protest over claims that concerns over standards were not being addressed.

A report by the Care Standards Inspectorate identified 14 instances where the school was failing to meet the minimum standards in 2006.

Parents claimed that by 2007 none of the failures had been acted on and there were a further seven instances of the failure to meet minimum standards.

The claims led to some parents of autistic pupils at the school staging a demonstration outside Denbighshire council offices in Ruthin.

Education officials have now confirmed that Dr Toman will officially retire from his post at the end of August.

news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/wales/8132580.stm

In the meantime, Dr Toman has been replaced by Richard Williams, deputy headteacher at St Christopher’s School in Wrexham, pending the outcome of the investigation, expected on October 10.

North Wales Police are aware of the inquiry but are not investigating, a force spokeswoman confirmed.

Gregg stood trial in 1997 and was acquitted of abusing one of those three, the court heard.

The other two complainants came forward following publicity (news reports of that trial have been removed from the internet) about that trial but it was decided those allegations should not proceed to trial.

When Gregg faced fresh allegations in 2012, he told police that similarities between the stories put forward by the nine were due to them reading details about the trial in 1997.

Mr Greaney said: ‘He was asserting that those allegations with which you are concerned were copycat allegations.’

He said there was evidence that Gregg ‘finds young boys attractive’ and had a propensity to commit sexual abuse.

Gregg was said to have abused a boy in a school swimming bath, another while letting him drive his car while the boy had hold of the steering wheel.

Mr Greaney said: ‘The overall picture is now of complainants from different backgrounds, across many years, indeed decades, and across many aspects of the defendant’s life, but all making similar allegations against Colin Gregg, namely he has a strong determination to sexually abuse little boys when he gets the chance.’

1984 Birthday Honours – Brian Roycroft

Eric Brian Roycroft – Director of Social Services, Newcastle upon Tyne Metropolitan Borough Council.
……………….

Newcastle City Council, Brian Roycroft, and North Wales care homes

On February 16th 2000 under the headline Suffer the Little Children the Newcastle Journal provided the story of one of the victims in Sunderland mentioning that the NSPCC report had referred to a web of institutional abuse and reported that 32 staff had been involved.

The Sunderland Echo also published an editorial Two Decades of Horrific Abuse and an article on the movement of staff suspects between local authorities. The Newcastle Spotlight on Abuse article is important drawing attention to the role of the Director of Social Services Roycroft in relation to the 1976 Hugh Bostock Scandal and his alleged opposition to the proposal for a register of dismissed staff. Cathy Fox’s request for Hugh Bostock inquiry info to be published was refused.

On Feb 17th the Newcastle-based Journal published the story of one victim who contacted them among the 28 who were said to have been assaulted after being placed in Bryn Alyn by the City of Newcastle.

The Feb 17th complainant mentioned that Director of Social Services Brian Roycroft visited the home to open an extension. “It was almost laughable he was singing the praises of the place yet what was going on there was evil.”

Roycroft was Director of Social Services for Newcastle 1971- 1993and before then its Children’s officer, who also acted as Director of Education and Chief Executive for short periods, and was appointed a European Social Commissioner by Margaret Thatcher as well as having a controlling influence within the Association of Directors of Social Services and the advisors to the Association of Metropolitan local authorities.

He commented in what appeared to be a prepared statement “ It is fairly common place to send children with behavioural difficulties to homes around the country, here weren’t the facilities available in the North East. It is perfectly possible that some children from Newcastle and the North East did go to some of the homes in North Wales named in the Waterhouse report. I had 42,000 children in my care during my career and I cannot possible remember where they all went. It is also perfectly feasible that I did visit the Bryn Alyn Home “ It is noteworthy that although he left Newcastle a number of years before he knew the total number of children was over 42,000

“I would often visit homes where children from Newcastle were in care as would social service staff from the city” The article includes comments from the then current Director of Social Services for Newcastle.

In 1987, that is a year after the first complaints about the conduct of the owner of Bryn Alyn were made, Roycroft who was then President of the Association of Directors of Social Service recommended colleagues at the North East Region branch meeting the placement of children in care at Bryn Alyn, speaking warmly of the hospitality he had received. He rarely mentioned his national/internationally activities.

Roycroft also made a point of advising colleagues on another occasion that he sometimes invited children in care to his home.

It was then on morning of the 18th that the Journal posed the question Why were 69 of our Children sent to Bryn Alyn? The key sentence in the article (9) is the reference to a Labour MP Chris Ruane Vale of Clwyd (and still there) wanted Prime Minister Tony Blair to assure him that prominent people had not been left out.

On the 19th the Journal again asked the question Why did they keep sending children? The article refers to the 1988 devastating report of its Director on its Children’s Homes and which included Bryn Alyn.

Roycroft who died in 2002 during the libel action against the Council and the authors of the report on the Sheffield Nursery Scandal (the Chronicle settled out of court) was also the lead member of the team who investigated the conviction of the Calderdale Social Services Director in 1988 (when he was immediate past President of ADSS) for crimes against children in care and Calderdale director was reported to have links with Peter Righton)

In 1994 Roycroft was part of the part Inquiry into Oxenden House.

A spokesperson for Greggs, where Mr Gregg held a senior role for 10 years, said: “Colin Gregg has no involvement with Greggs Plc and it would therefore be wholly inappropriate for us to comment on this matter.”

Formerly a director at the baked goods giant established by his father John Gregg in the 1930s, Mr Gregg had previously held the lead role at Kings School in Tynemouth.

During his time there, he launched the Greggs Children’s Cancer Run, now in its 31st year, after pupil Chris Peacock was diagnosed with kidney cancer and given a 30% chance of survival.

Chris Peacock’s cancer was treated by Professor Alan Craft and this year (2013), as in the 20 previous years, he will be taking part in the Children’s Cancer Run.

Since its creation, the events has raised in excess of £5m for North of England Children’s Cancer Research (NECCR), at Newcastle.

He left the prestigious school in 1990 to become the full time administrator with the Yellow Brick Road Fund, a charity set up to raise millions for projects.

The charity later became Children’s Foundation, fundraising for what is now the Great North Children’s Hospital.

New Square Shaping Up

THE final stages of a town square intended for a leafy Tyneside suburb have been put in place.

A team at Trinity Church, in Gosforth, Newcastle, have been planning the attractive community space since the church had a pounds 3.25m refurbishment in 2006.

But after gaining planning permission, the development was put on the back-burner as the popularity of the new Trinity Centre exceeded expectations.

Attention was turned to creating the half-paved and half-grassed town square, aimed at breathing life back into Gosforth High Street after the team received a grant of pounds 100,000 from Newcastle City Council.

At the time of the planning in 2009, the project was estimated to cost pounds 400,000. It is hoped the space will be used as place to sit, relax and chat, as well as for entertainment such as bands, markets and chess.

Colin Gregg, chairman of the Trinity Centre, said the aim of the square was to bring the local community together.

He said: “The overall aim is that the square will help bring people back on to the High Street and to eventually shop there so trade will pick up.

“Gosforth High Street used to be a thriving area. It was where the bakery Greggs opened its first store and it was a place where people came and talked.

“We want the square to be the heart of the community.”

Since the Trinity Centre reopened in 2008 it has exceeded expectations.

The church now hosts 100 activities a week and has around 2,500 people walking through its doors each week.

Sasha Wass QC, prosecutor in Rolf Harris trial, to lead island sex abuse inquiry

Sasha Wass QC, has been brought into to head an investigation into an alleged cover-up on St Helena and Ascension

20 November 2014

A prominent barrister who successfully prosecuted Rolf Harris will head an investigation into an alleged police and government conspiracy to cover up the widespread sexual exploitation of girls on a British overseas territory.

Sasha Wass QC, has been brought in after a review of child safety on St Helena and Ascension – two tiny and remote islands in the South Atlantic with a combined population of some 5,500 – revealed that a number of paedophiles had escaped prosecution amid claims of police incompetence and corruption.

Social workers said they raised concerns about a paedophile officer but were snubbed and told not to rock the boat and “enjoy the view” on St Helena, famous as the island prison of Napoleon.

1999 Charity bike ride

Morecombe – Skipton – Thirsk – Scarborough

After the success of the first 2 rides we became more adventurous and designed a new coast to coast of our own. This was to give people the chance to complete other ways to cross the country on a bike. The route was designed by Les and went from Morecambe to Scarborough via Skipton and Thirsk.

The 3 day ride included more varied terrain and scenery over 200 miles and had lots of hills, off road tracks, fast road sections and included the first cityworks riders hill climb just for fun. 12 riders signed up for the trip through Settle, Skipton, Pately bridge, Ripon, Thirsk, Thornton le dale, and Scarborough.

This ride was also on a large scale as we had a bus, a 7 ton wagon and 3 outriders from the TA. The back up was great and the route well organised in advance. We also stayed in good quality hotels on the way and provided pleanty of pub stops for a beer or two.

This ride was in aid of three charities: –

  • The Childrens cancer research fund at the R.V.I. Newcastle
  • The Yellow Brick road appeal Newcastle
  • The Evening Chronicle Sunshine fund Newcastle.

We enlisted the help of the Mayor of Morecambe to start the ride and the mayor of Scarborough to meet us at the end.

£3,250 was raised for our chosen charities with the cheque presentation at the Civic centre again with our charity representatives.

http://www.newcastlecityriders.org/Events.html

The Barry Sisters – June, Angela and Ann – were the toast of the North in the late 50s and 60s, performing alongside stars from Cliff Richard to Ken Dodd and Des O’Connor to Morecambe and Wise.
Angela Wright, 79, of New Marske, will join guests in Newcastle on Thursday to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Children’s Foundation, a charity close to her late sister June’s heart.
June, the only one of the three never to have had children of her own, left the charity PS10,000 in her will after her death in September.

The group had a glittering career which saw them tour the country with a host of household names.

They spent six weeks touring with a young Cliff Richard and although Angela has fond memories of the time she missed out on the chance to have her picture taken with the future superstar – she was giving birth to Martyn. The group’s “fourth member” Sylvia Scarill filled in for her.

She said: “He was very polite and pleasant, but he didn’t socialise much. Sometimes he would rehearse songs with the band in the bus, but most of the time he travelled by car with his own driver.”

Constable Simon Bailey – wants a reduction in penalties for child abuse offenders / Simon Bailey’s Background

Simon Bailey, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for child protection

A leading child protection officer has suggested paedophiles who view indecent images should not be given criminal sanctions unless they pose a physical threat to children, according to The Times.

Lower level offenders should be given counselling and rehabilitation and police should focus on the most dangerous paedophiles with access to children and those looking at the most serious images, Simon Bailey, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for child protection, is reported to have said.

…alternatives needed to be looked at as increasing reports of sexual abuse have pushed the situation to “saturation point”.

The Times quoted Mr Bailey as acknowledging many people may be horrified at the stance…

 

MPs call for ‘immediate reassurance’ over child abuse image cases

07 Mar 2017

A group of influential MPs is “very alarmed” that Britain’s most senior child protection police officer should want to keep low-level offenders viewing abuse images out of the courts.

Home Affairs Select Committee (HASC) chair Yvette Cooper is calling for “immediate reassurance” after the National Police Chiefs’ Council child protection lead suggested only paedophiles who pose a “really significant” physical risk to children should face a criminal sentence.

While thousands of suspects are being arrested every year in conjunction with the National Crime Agency (NCA), Chief Constable Simon Bailey said alternatives needed to be looked at as increasing reports of sexual abuse have pushed the situation to “saturation point”.

Worried by the “changes in approach” if implemented straight away, Ms Cooper said comments that forces cannot cope with the “huge proportions” of child sex abuse offences – up 80 per cent in three years – are “clearly of great concern to us”.

She wrote to Mr Bailey: “As you will know, for many decades institutions have put children at risk because it was seen as too difficult, not a priority or resources were insufficient to keep them safe.

“I would not want to see the same happen over online child abuse.”

The children’s charity  National Association for People Abused in Childhood’s chief executive officer, Gabrielle Shaw,  expressed concerns that Mr Bailey’s views could mean that “paedophiles who want to view indecent images of children now have the green light to do so?”.

Ms Shaw added:” If they think they won’t be thrown in jail, what’s to stop them from searching out these images to satisfy their sick appetites?”

Arguing there is no-such thing as a “low-risk paedophile”, she went on: “I don’t want anyone to think for a second that looking at an indecent image of a child is a victimless crime.

“Just because someone downloaded it, maybe paid for it, they might think it’s OK as they didn’t go and hurt a child physically? Except they have.

“They have fed the demand for these images, which means more children will be robbed of their innocence in the worst way possible.

“Those children have to grow up knowing these images will circulate for years – every time someone new views them they are being abused all over again. It never stops.”

“Police priorities reflect society’s priorities. And if you want child protection to be a priority, then let’s all say so.”

Singing from the same hymn sheet:

Every paedophile needs to face full force of the law

THE suggestion from leading police officer Simon Bailey that paedophiles who look at indecent images online should not be charged with criminal offences unless they pose a direct threat to children is appalling.

 

 His implication is that looking at “low-level images” is not a serious offence. This is completely wrong.

The paedophiles who view these images online may not have physically abused a child themselves but they are funding those who produce such content. They must bear at least some of the responsibility for the suffering of the children featured.

Moreover in some cases viewing images online is just the start. Often it is a precursor to paedophiles committing far worse crimes.

Treating the viewing of images as a minor crime does not provide a sufficient deterrent to further activity and fails to address their behaviour early enough.

Paedophilia is one of the very worst crimes that can be committed. It is shocking that anybody – let alone a senior police officer – could advocate relaxing the laws surrounding it.

April Jones’s mother hits out at senior police officer’s paedophile comments

March 1 2017

The mother of murdered April Jones has warned “anything can trigger” dangerous sexual predators amid suggestions viewing child abuse images should not always lead to prosecution.

A senior police officer provoked a storm of criticism this week by claiming lower-level offenders should instead be given counselling and rehabilitation for looking at child pornography.

Coral Jones, whose five-year-old daughter April was abducted and murdered by paedophile Mark Bridger in 2012, recalled how the killer had viewed grotesque pictures before his crime.

The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) also suggested the comments by the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for child protection, Simon Bailey, amounted to telling offenders: “This is a great day to be a paedophile.”

In comments released by the IWF, Mrs Jones hit back at the claim abuse images could be “low-level”, saying: “You don’t know what pictures Bridger was looking at before attacking my daughter.

“He was looking at images hours before he went after April. It doesn’t matter what images paedophiles look at. Anything can trigger them off.

“A child could have a photo taken of their abuse and they will have to live with that for the rest of their life. People can be cruel.”

Chief executive Susie Hargreaves told the Press Association: “I think absolutely we need to make sure we don’t give out the wrong message, we don’t want to be saying ‘this is a great day to be a paedophile because when you look at the images there might not be the ramifications you expected a week ago’.

“What we have to say is we have a zero-tolerance approach to anybody looking at child sexual abuse – it is wrong.

“These are children, these are real children who are abused and whether it’s a category C or a category A that is a real child suffering that abuse.”

“Resources is not a reason to let people get away with child sexual abuse.”

No doubt child porn producers work in organized networks; surely GCHQ can target?

Any progress on P.I.E. Keith Harding’s role in GCHQ Masonic Lodge?

Bit odd story didn’t get more coverage:


gchq-mason-lodge


What is worrying, is that he is the same man who coordinates Operation Hydrant.

World gone mad. You couldn’t make it up.

Totally agree with increasing penalties for drivers using mobiles but why not for child abuse offenders?

agree re phones child abuse raises questions re who is actually bring protected children or well connected

Why suggestions that viewing images might be decriminalised are misguided and need rejecting

 “Viewing indecent images of children is a criminal offence & must be dealt with by police as such”

 Seems plenty of room in jail for beggars & ppl not paying TV licence ppl with drug & mental health issues

It seems Simon Bailey is only parroting what pie-monger Harriet the Harwoman (NCCL Harriet Harman) said many moons ago:

I see it as condoning the people who make the stuff in the first place!

Simon Bailey Honours

simon-bailey-honours

13 June 2014

Mr Bailey started his policing career as a PC in King’s Lynn in 1986 and rose through the ranks to deputy chief constable in 2010.

He said: “I’m continuing to see reductions in what we would call traditional crime types whereas I’m seeing significant growth is emerging in the vulnerability case areas.

“We’re seeing increases of reporting of abuse, child and adult abuse, rape and serious sexual offences.

“I don’t believe, and have nothing that would indicate, there are more offences taking place but there’s been the Savile effect which has raised levels of awareness.

“There’s an increased confidence that their story will be believed and increased confidence on my organisation’s ability to respond to that and deal with it.”

He added: “The face of crime is changing and we’ve got to rebalance resources in the organisation.”

Norfolk Constabulary

15 March 1999: Human rights lawyer Rosemary Nelson is assassinated by the British state in collusion with a loyalist death squad.

 

Charges of collusion in the murder of Rosemary Nelson have led the Royal Ulster Constabulary to hand over the investigation to the British police, and to also request the help of the FBI.

https://web.archive.org/web/20080110071620/http://i2.democracynow.org/1999/3/18/who_killed_rosemary_nelson

She was murdered a week before the publication of a report into allegations that police officers had told her clients she’d soon be dead.

What no one had known, however, was that while the RUC itself was under scrutiny, special branch, MI5 and the security service had been spying on her. Between 1994-1998 security reports on Nelson’s private and public life accelerated until, in the summer of 1998, an application for a warrant to put a bugging device in her property went to Mo Mowlam, then Northern Ireland secretary. It troubled Mowlam, but she sanctioned it.

The evidence has stunned the three previous inquiries – costing millions of pounds – into alleged collusion in Nelson’s killing. They had all been told lies, that no intelligence file or files exist on Nelson.

“That was an untruth,” says a furious officer close to the murder investigation headed by Colin Port, now chief constable of Avon and Somerset police.

There has always been an eerie code of silence about Nelson’s death. Despite Port’s “outstanding” stings, said Phillips, the suspects had not spoken. But they had consistently uttered one mantra: “It was the government that did it.”

https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2009/jul/04/rosemary-nelson-murder-public-inquiry

Rosemary Nelson (née Magee; 4 September 1958 – 15 March 1999) was a prominent Irish human rights solicitor who was assassinated by an Ulster loyalist paramilitary group in 1999. A bomb exploded under her car at her home in Lurgan, Northern Ireland; the Red Hand Defenders claimed responsibility. Allegations that the British state security forces were involved in her killing led to a public inquiry. It found no evidence that state forces directly facilitated her murder, but could not exclude the possibility that individual members had helped the perpetrators. It said that the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) failed to protect her and that she had been publicly threatened and assaulted by officers, which helped legitimize her as a target.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12]

In September 2006 the British Security Service MI5 announced it would be represented at the inquiry. This move provoked criticism from Nelson’s family, who reportedly expressed concerns that MI5 would remove sensitive or classified information.[17]

Loyalist McKeown: Police asked me to shoot Rosemary Nelson dead

Loyalist lifer Trevor McKeown could be called to the public inquiry into the murder of Catholic lawyer Rosemary Nelson.

 Four years ago he claimed rogue RUC officers directed him to the spot where Rosemary Nelson parked her car and urged him to shoot her there — less than two years before she was eventually killed by a loyalist car bomb.

McKeown says two officers asked him to kill the human rights lawyer while he was being quizzed over the murder of 18-year-old Bernadette Martin — an allegation they strenusously denied.

Since her death there have been persistent allegations of security force collusion in the murder, which is now the subject of an inquiry headed by retired judge Sir Michael Morland.
Ironically, McKeown’s trial for murdering Bernadette Martin started the day mother-of-three Mrs Nelson was murdered on March 15, 1999.

Man arrested on Teesside over historic abuse claims linked to football

Cleveland Police reveal details of man arrested over claims of ‘non-recent sexual offences against children’

1 MAR 2017

Police have made the first arrest on Teesside in the ongoing probe into historic child abuse in football.

Cleveland Police confirmed a man in his 40s was arrested for “non-recent sexual offences against children”.

In total, eight people have made abuse allegations to the force at “all levels” of the game.

No further details of the suspect or the allegations, such as what club they may centre around, have been disclosed.

But a force spokesperson said: “Cleveland Police has received allegations from eight people of non-recent abuse associated with football at all levels and these allegations are being investigated.

“One man in his 40s was arrested at the end of January in connection with an allegation and he has been bailed pending further inquiries.

All information relating to non-recent child sexual abuse allegations received by Cleveland Police is being forwarded to Operation Hydrant for the purpose of national operational coordination.

“This involves collating and cross referencing all information received to avoid duplication, and ensure efficient and effective sharing of information.”

Abuse survivor quits Vatican’s child protection panel

Mar 1 2017

Irish abuse victim Marie Collins has quit the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors

A survivor of clerical sex abuse has resigned from a panel established by Pope Francis to address the issue, saying Vatican officials mounted “shameful” resistance to its work.

Marie Collins was the only remaining panel member abused by a cleric.

She said the commission had suffered constant setbacks, “despite the Holy Father approving all its recommendations”.

Pope Francis set up the panel in March 2014.

It was seen as an attempt to address the bitter and long-standing scourge of child abuse which has dogged the Catholic Church.

In her resignation letter, Ms Collins said she believed the pontiff had acted sincerely when he appointed the commission to advise on keeping children safe.

However, she condemned the lack of co-operation by those dealing with cases of abuse.

The Pope himself has been criticised for reducing the punishments given to priests guilty of child abuse.

Briton Peter Saunders departed in 2016 after quarrelling with other members about how to handle serial abuse allegations against an Italian priest.

Mr Saunders said he felt betrayed by the Pope and felt he had been tricked into backing up a “smoke and mirrors” exercise.

Row as Police Scotland blocks release of chief constable Phil Gormley‘s financial interests

6 Aug 2016

Police Scotland Chief Constable Phil Gormley

POLICE Scotland is embroiled in a secrecy row after it blacked out the details of the chief constable’s financial interests.

The force’s decision means it is impossible to know if Phil Gormley has any business ties outside of policing.

John Finnie, a Scottish Greens MSP and a former policeman, called on the decision to be reconsidered.

Submitting a register of interests that is available for inspection is a basic element of public sector transparency.

MSPs, MPs, MEPs and councillors are required to produce a detailed list, as are board members of quangos and public agencies.

A key part of this ethics check is financial openness, such as declaring directorships and shareholdings.

The Police Scotland Executive – whose members include police chiefs – also have to submit an internal declaration on public appointments, political activity, gifts and hospitality and potential conflicts of interest.

However, although the force has released a copy of Gormley’s register, the “financial” section has been redacted.

“The public have a right to know of any potential conflicts of interests that senior public figures or elected politicians may have and it is for that reasons we all complete a register of interests.

Myles Bradbury: CEOP ‘failed to alert abuse doctor to police’

Phil Gormley involved in this case.

CEOP received information from Toronto Police, via Interpol, of up to 2,345 UK individuals, including Bradbury, in July 2012.

This was part of the Canadian force’s Project Spade investigating child pornography across the world.

The NCA said the material provided to CEOP included “details” of online purchasers of potentially harmful DVDs and videos.

In November 2013, a few weeks after the agency took over CEOP, the NCA said its deputy director general Phil Gormley became aware the material had not been disseminated to UK police forces and did then share it…

the data on Myles Bradbury was shared with Suffolk Police a few days later on 27 November, which, by coincidence, was the same day a grandparent of a victim at the hospital made a complaint about the doctor.

Queen Elizabeth and Phil Gormley – sharing a special handshake


Norfolk chief constable – on meeting the Queen – hobnobbing with royalty.

11 July 2011

He was once the real Morse, and meets the royals as part of his job, but the Chief Constable of Norfolk was surprised to find himself something of a local celebrity too.

Phil Gormley has been in the job for just over a year, but is still getting used to invitations as diverse as church with the Queen, cricket with a general, or late night knock on his front door to ask him to look into rumours of a village crime.

“The post of the chief constable is one that has a much higher profile in Norfolk than it has in other places I have worked,” he said.

A life-long football fan, he has attended several Norwich City matches since moving to the county – and not all of them as a spectator.

“I’ve been out and policed a couple of matches, and I go out on patrol…”

Profile: New Scottish police chief Phil Gormley linked to #spycops scandal

24 January 2016

In 2005-2006, he had a position that included the oversight of both the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS) and the National Public Order Intelligence Unit, (NPOIU).

http://undercoverresearch.net/2016/01/24/profile-new-scottish-police-chief-phil-gormley-linked-to-spycops-scandal/

Philip Michael Christopher “Phil” Gormley (born 1963, Surrey)[1] is a high ranking police officer who became Chief Constable of Police Scotland in January 2016. Prior to this he was Deputy Director of the National Crime Agency.

He had previously served as Commander for Specialist Operations in the Metropolitan Police and as Secretary for the Association of Chief Police Officer‘s Terrorism and Allied Matters Committee 2005-2006, where he was involved in overseeing two undercover policing units, Special Demonstration Squad and the National Public Order Intelligence Unit respectively.

Gormley has been married twice and has one daughter.[50][10] His second wife, who he married in 1998, is Claire Louise Stevens, a police officer with Thames Valley Police where she rose to rank of Det. Superintendent in 2009; since 2011 she has been Det. Superintendent with HM Inspectorate of Constabulary.[1][51].

Of note is that the Deputy Chief Constable of Norfolk was Ian Learmonth, who was one of the senior police officers responsible for policing around the 2005 G8 Summit, then Assistant Chief Constable for Operations at Strathclyde Police.[12]

As with the SDS under his heading of Special Branch, Gormley’s time here is at a crucial period in the history of the spycop unit National Public Order Intelligence Unit, as will be detailed below. While Gormley was overseeing it, this Unit ran notorious undercovers such as Mark Kennedy, Lynn Watson and Marco Jacobs at this time. All three were in attendance in the counter-mobilisation and protests against the 2005 G8 Summit in Scotland. The G8 is a significant period as it was one of great activity by NPOIU, and Mark Kennedy claimed that he’d been told his reports were going direct to the desk of Prime Minister Tony Blair

More on Phil Gormley

New chief constable Phil Gormley linked to Met undercover police ‘sex spy’ unit

 

POLICE Scotland’s new chief constable led the Metropolitan police branch that controlled a notorious undercover unit whose officers had sex with their female targets.

Phil Gormley was in charge of the Met’s Special Branch, which had responsibility for the disgraced Special Demonstration Squad (SDS).

The SDS’s activities are now central to a judge-led inquiry into undercover policing in England and Wales.

MSP Graeme Pearson, former Director General of the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency, called on the police chief to provide answers on any links he had to the SDS.

Gormley, the former deputy director of the National Crime Agency, came out of retirement to secure the top job in Scottish policing and starts this week.

He succeeds Sir Stephen House, whose term was marked by controversies on stop and search, armed policing, call-handling and unlawful spying.

However, as Gormley prepares to take over, the spotlight is on his career at the Met, where he was a commander for four years from 2003.

The SDS was formed in 1968 – as the Special Operations Squad – in response to mass protests against the Vietnam War.

Over the next 40 years, SDS officers would be embedded undercover into protest and environmental groups with a view to keeping tabs on their activities.

The Unit was based inside the Met’s Special Branch – which focuses on national security.

However, the SDS has become discredited over the tactics used by its undercover officers over the decades.

A number of the plants formed sexual relationships with female activists and one ex-officer, Bob Lambert, even fathered a child with a protestor in the 1980s.

In November, it was announced that seven woman received compensation for what the Met described as “totally unacceptable” behaviour of some of its officers.

The compensation was linked to behaviour by former officers for the SDS and the separate National Public Order Intelligence Unit.

Officers also assumed fake identities by taking the names of dead babies and gave evidence in court using the false names.

The SDS also stands accused of spying in the 1990s on the family of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence – an allegation that led to Home Secretary Theresa May to announce the Pitchford Inquiry. The SDS was eventually wound up in 2008.

According to his online Police Scotland biography, Gormley became a Met commander in 2003: “Initially responsible for firearms and aviation security, then for special branch and counter terrorism.”

His NCA biography provides more details of this stint: “From 2005 Phil led the modernisation of Specialist Operations and took command of MPS Special Branch, driving forward the merger of Special Branch and the Anti Terrorist Branch to form the new Counter Terrorism Command.”

In 2005, when Gormley took command of Special Branch, the SDS – now called the Special Duties Squad – was still in existence.

In an official inquiry into SDS, carried out by Derbyshire chief constable Mick Creedon, the two most senior officers in the SDS pecking order were “Commander Special Branch” and a Detective Chief Superintendent.

MSP John Finnie, a former police officer, said: “I would be keen to understand what the Scottish Police Authority (SPA) knew about Mr Gormley’s policing background and what enquiries, if any, they made about his role with Special Branch and the SDS.

“If the SPA were unaware of this hugely significant matter, then, once again, it would bring into question their competence.

“The public will rightly question how someone who was in charge of Special Branch, which controlled the notorious SDS, is now our chief constable.”

Phil Gormley was speaking at a Westminster home affairs committee

Police Scotland’s overseas training work is ‘hypocrisy’

25 May 2016

A Labour MP has strongly criticised Scotland’s chief constable for letting his force train officers in countries with “appalling” human rights records.

Labour’s David Winnick told Phil Gormley that Police Scotland’s work in places like Sri Lanka was “hypocrisy”.

But Mr Gormley said the force was under “significant budgetary pressure” and needed to seek additional income.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Scottish government had “full knowledge” of the contracts, he added.

Mr Gormley was speaking at a Westminster home affairs committee on Tuesday.

He confirmed Police Scotland’s international development unit provided training in Sri Lanka, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and South Sudan, among others.

Deaths in custody

The force has been training officers in Sri Lanka for several years, despite concerns being raised by Amnesty International about the country’s record on torture, arbitrary arrests and deaths in custody.

Mr Winnick asked him: “Sudan has a notorious record of outright brutality… Isn’t there a contradiction of this country [the UK] upholding certain principles, human rights and the rest and an organisation like yours having contracts with governments that are totally in the opposite direction?”

Police Scotland has provided training on child protection and crash investigation to officers in the UAE’s police force.

Phil Gormley – Common Purpose? John Walker made this Freedom of Information request to West Midlands Police

Dear West Midlands Police,

Has the former deputy chief constable of West Midlands Police, Phil Gormley, ever attended a Common Purpose training course?

If so please list the courses he has attended, their dates, their cost and details of who paid for them.

By Common Purpose, I mean the training organisation of that name: http://www.commonpurpose.org/home.aspx

Yours faithfully,

West Midlands Police did not have the information requested.

There are widespread concerns the NCA is being run more like a Whitehall department than a law enforcement agency, with too many managers making it difficult for swift action to be taken. Its annual report, published last week, reveals huge turnover in its 17-strong management board. Director-general Mr Bristow is leaving before his contract ends in late 2016, although the Home Office claimed this did not mean he was leaving early.

Deputy director-general Phil Gormley announced in March that he would retire in the coming year.

He became deputy director general of the National Crime Agency in 2013.

NCA… had suddenly been given a lead role in tackling child abuse.

The Home Secretary said last night: ‘Keith Bristow has been an inspirational first director-general.

‘Under his leadership, and alongside Phil Gormley and Trevor Pearce, the NCA re-shaped the UK’s response to serious and organised crime and is a highly effective organisation.’

Harvey Proctor – Is he the world’s unluckiest man?

He is UNLUCKY to say the least. He claims that the world is out to get him, that he is targeted by the Metropolitan Police because some of them are homophobic and his convictions don’t count because they wouldn’t be convictions now. He is an honest man, guv.  On the other hand, he has been accused of being a compulsive liar – a serial fantasist – a Walter Mitty type.

Conservative Sir Gerald Howarth, defence minister until 2012, has mounted an extraordinary defence of a Tory MP who organised a Nazi-themed stag do – saying he was the victim of a ‘disgraceful witch hunt’.

And he tried to justify the MP’s involvement in such a distasteful event, claiming ‘we’ve all done it’.

John Mann Mp speaking about the Dickens Dossier:

It is worth saying one other thing about George Kennedy Young. He was involved in many dubious activities; he tried to get some kind of private army called “Unison” going. I have seen a range of background documents that would be of interest to anyone campaigning on the Shrewsbury pickets and on infiltration of the miners’ strike, with names that correlate. There are a lot of allegations about him attempting to undermine both the Heath and the Wilson Governments. He was clearly a manipulator, and is key to what was going on. I do not know why he is so prominent or why the Society for Individual Freedom, which he set up, is named in this, but he is a significant figure and that may give some sort of reason for why things then disappeared.

Cyril Smith admitted spanking and touching boys, but I let him stay, says Lord Steel

Lord Steel, the former Liberal leader, said he confronted Cyril Smith over allegations that he spanked and touched teenagers

Liberal MP Cyril Smith did not only paddle boy’s bottoms. In the 1980s, he was arrested in London as part of an investigation into alleged sex parties with teenage males. It is further alleged the arrest was kept secret by police, who abused the Official Secrets Act to protect the alleged pervert.

and

And how, now, are we to view what the obituarists praised as Freud’s “loyalty” in standing by his friend Jeremy Thorpe when the Liberal leader faced claims he had sought to have his former gay lover Norman Scott killed?  When the scandal first broke in 1976, Freud was the only Liberal MP to urge Thorpe to remain as party leader.  When downfall became inevitable, it was Freud who helped Thorpe compose his letter of resignation.

And the speculation about what occurred between Freud and Thorpe, Harris, and Cyril Smith will not even be the most fevered.

That unwanted distinction will fall to the possibility – which police are now being urged to investigate – that Freud might somehow have played a role in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Freud had a villa in Praia da Luz, the Portugese resort where the three-year-old went missing in 2007.

Jeremy Thorpe DID send a hitman to kill me – and they are STILL covering it up: MP’s ex-lover reveals police were on the verge of charging a detective over the lurid murder trial – but dropped case due to ‘missing court papers’

  • Norman Scott has given his first interview on the case in more than 20 years 
  • Liberal Party leader Thorpe went on trial for conspiracy to murder him in the 70s 
  • Mr Scott, now 77, had been the politician’s lover when homosexuality was illegal
  • The case was dropped but Mr Scott was re-called to talk to detectives last year
Apr 1 2017

In a rare interview – his most candid yet and his first for more than 20 years – Scott, now 77, today reveals that police were poised earlier this year to bring charges against two men, one a former detective.

However, two weeks ago he received a letter from the Crown Prosecution Service telling him it had decided to drop the case. ‘Had this new evidence not been suppressed at the time, then the trial verdict might well have been different,’ says Scott.

‘But here they are telling me they can’t do anything about it. I can’t help feeling this new inquiry has ended with yet another cover-up.’

In a separate development, The Mail on Sunday can also reveal that newly released Cabinet Office papers show how Thorpe desperately tried to smear Scott as the scandal was about to break.

He has lived quietly in Devon ever since – at least until Operation Velum detectives arrived at his home on the edge of Dartmoor last year, asking him to revisit his past.

Police told Scott that an antique firearms dealer, Dennis Meighan, had confessed to being hired by a ‘representative’ of Thorpe in 1975 to kill Scott to protect the politician from public humiliation.

Meighan agreed to carry out the murder – in exchange for £13,500 (£140,000 today) – but later changed his mind. Although he was arrested at the time and made a confession, his statement was destroyed and a few weeks later he was made to sign another. This one exonerated both himself and Thorpe.

Meighan couldn’t believe his luck. A few days later he received an anonymous phone call warning him to keep his mouth shut.

But over the years the secret weighed heavily upon him and he eventually revealed the truth to the BBC’s Tom Mangold and, later, a Mail on Sunday reporter.

It was, it seemed, confirmation of the long-suspected existence of an invisible shield protecting Thorpe. ‘It was chilling to hear Meighan was willing to kill me,’ says Scott. ‘I didn’t know him but I went over everything again with the police. At times it was hard because I have blocked things from my memory.’

…,the time they tried to kill me.’

He is alluding to the night of October 23, 1975, when, on a deserted stretch of road on Exmoor, a part-time pilot, Andrew Newton, shot dead Scott’s dog, a Great Dane called Rinka. Newton then pressed the pistol to Scott’s temple, saying: ‘It’s your turn now.’ But, as Scott heard the hammer click, the gun jammed and Newton then sped away in his yellow Mazda car.

Ten minutes later, covered in Rinka’s blood, Scott flagged down a car and dramatically blurted out ‘Jeremy Thorpe’ to the driver.

Now 69, he would have been willing to help Operation Velum detectives – but only if he was guaranteed immunity from prosecution.

‘as one might expect, the original case papers relating to the [Thorpe] trial are not longer available’.

‘There must be court records. They can’t be gone: it was supposed to be the trial of the century,’ he says. ‘I was so disgusted when I got the CPS letter. The police were very confident they had a case,

which is why the decision is rather puzzling. I suppose that’s it now.’

Jeremy Thorpe wrote this desperate letter to Harold Wilson claiming Norman Scott was involved in a ‘vice ring’

In it, he mentions a sunken bath for ‘up to six people’ at the home of Scott’s friend, Jack Levy. Mr Levy’s wife Stella, pictured below, told The Mail on Sunday: ‘It makes me sick.

Thorpe also writes about paying £2,500 for letters he feared would reveal his private life.

Norman Scott modelling alongside his friend Stella Levy  in the 1960s. She was later implicated in the vice-ring allegations

By 1965 their relationship was over but the scandal would fester for a further decade. During that period Scott was married briefly to former debutante Susan Myers and lived with the Anglo-American socialite, Conway Wilson-Young.

‘We lived on the first floor and Margot Fonteyn had the basement flat. She used to come with us to parties.’

Scott was also friendly with Tara Browne, heir to the Guinness fortune and the inspiration for the Beatles’ A Day In The Life, and Marianne Faithfull.

After he split from Wilson-Young, Scott moved to Devon where he slept rough in public toilets in Barnstaple before finding work.

he..now makes a living buying and selling horses

The sex scandal, the trial… and the cover-up

  • Jeremy Thorpe, the Liberal Party’s rising star, meets model Norman Scott at a friend’s home in late 1960. He is instantly smitten.
  • With homosexuality still illegal, the pair begin an affair, enjoying liaisons in Thorpe’s Commons room.
  • The affair later cools. Thorpe’s MP friend Peter Bessell begins to pay Scott a series of ‘retainers’.
  • Senior Liberals conduct a secret inquiry in 1971 after the scandal threatens to ignite – but take no action.
  • Thorpe talks of silencing Scott by dropping him down a mine, adding: ‘It’s no worse than shooting a sick dog.’
  • In an apparently botched murder attempt on October 23, 1975, Andrew Newton lures Scott on to Exmoor. He shoots the model’s dog before turning the gun on Scott – but it jams.
  • In 1979 Thorpe is cleared of conspiracy to murder.
  • After Thorpe’s death in 2014, it emerges evidence was suppressed, including Dennis Meighan’s claims – told to the MoS that year (above) – that he was hired as a hitman before Newton.
  • Police ask prosecutors to consider charging two men. Last month, the CPS dropped the case citing ‘insufficient’ evidence.

One of Harding‘s staff, who worked for him between 1980 and 1987, said: “Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith were both regular visitors to the shop.Usually they would come in via the side door, other times they would ring the bell at the front entrance and come in.
“They’d straight away ask for Keith who would be coming down the stairs. “Then they would then either go up to his office for a private meeting or they’d go out for several hours.”

24 September 2015 : ‘Tatler Tory’ expelled from party

Mark Clarke, ex-parliamentary candidate and founder of the RoadTrip campaigning group, is suspended from the Conservative party in connection  with allegations involving bullying,  blackmail and sex.

He has been cited  as a factor in the death of another young activist, Elliott Johnson, who took his own  life earlier in the month. Party chairman Grant Shapps will eventually resign because of the scandal, while Clarke, who was also chairman of Conservative Future and  director of the Young Britons Foundation,  will have his suspension from the party converted into a lifetime ban in November.

link

Clarke’s reputation was an open secret in senior Tory circles for years. Yet senior figures, including Mrs May, queued up to fete him on campaign trips.

The 13 complaints against Clarke, including six of a sexual nature, highlighted in the Clifford Chance report, relate to precisely that period, the 18 months before Elliott Johnson’s death – March 2014 to September 2015.

Robert Halfon, a minister without portfolio who attends cabinet, last week admitted to cheating on his partner after it emerged he was warned that a Tory aide was trying to blackmail him.

Halfon confessed to the affair following reports that a Tory election aide, Mark Clarke, had planned to film him leaving the East India Club in central London with the woman concerned, a Tory activist. Clarke denies the blackmail claim.

8 December 2015

Yesterday the Young Britons Foundation called off their annual Activist Training Conference — following the suicide of Elliot Johnson in September, and the subsequent revelations of Tory activist bullying.

Although six Cabinet ministers had cancelled their attendance at the event, and Elliot’s father Ray had written to David Cameron calling the YBF ‘a cult, indoctrinating young activists’, the organisation’s chief-executive Don Blaney appeared on LBC — with Iain Dale — to blame the cancellation on intrusive journalists.

In the interest of transparency — and responsible journalism — Mr S can’t help but wonder whether LBC ought to have put a declaration of interests at the start of the interview on behalf of Dale, or even put a different presenter forward. After all, for all his questions about what happens at YBF events, Steerpike understands that Dale knows more than he lets on.

In fact Dale has strong links with YBF, with the LBC presenter speaking at Young Britons Foundation events in the past, as well as actually carrying out media training with the young activists.

Since then Dale has made no secret of his friendship with Blaney, regularly puffing him up onlinerecently praising Blaney on his Conservative Home blog for a great night he had at a Margaret Thatcher dinner, as well as re-publishing Blaney’s writing on his personal blog.

It’s CHE – Monday club and young conservatives playing out all over again – shades of Elm?



… ALEC’s involvement overseas – most especially in the United Kingdom. It is time to delve a bit deeper into what is called the Atlantic Bridge and its works and ways. Full disclosure: the project officially known as Atlantic Bridge is now defunct, due to scandal in the UK and subsequent legal action. That doesn’t mean that ALEC isn’t still active on both sides of the Atlantic, as we will see.

Thatcher and ReaganMuch was made in the press about former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s friendship with former President Ronald Reagan. At the time – and even to America’s liberal Democrats – that seemed innocuous. “So what?”, we thought, “They share political goals as well as some kind of personal chemistry. It isn’t the first time in history that leaders of governments have formed personal ties. What harm can friendly leaders of allied governments do in the long run?”

Not that one advocates unfriendly allies – far from it! – but in this case, the answer turns out, thirty-odd years on, to be: plenty!

First of all, is the aspect of enshrining Reagan’s and Thatcher’s papers, policies and memorabilia in learning centers, which sponsor exchange programs between the interns of both countries for the purposes of study and indoctrination. Americans tend to honor past presidents with “Presidential Libraries” – at least since Hoover’s time. That custom isn’t followed in the UK but Margaret Thatcher will have her very own memorial library, very soon. Interestingly, most of the funding for it has already been raised in the United States.

Patrick Hennessy, Political Editor for The Telegraph discusses this in his article of April 14, 2013. Note the names of the members of the fundraising organizations and the party youth organizations in England and the United States. These same names crop up again and again in different contexts: heading different organizations, as speakers for various gatherings, and in other fundraising and legislative capacities. Their relationships are complicated and interconnected. It will take a few articles to sort through them.

Karl Rove and Donal Blaney

For instance, one Donal Blaney, who heads something called the Young Britons Foundation – and calls it “a Tory madrasa…for radicalizing young Tories” (Britons, apparently, having much less political sensitivity to such terminology than Americans) – is delightedly behind the fundraising for the Thatcher Library, and is also in cahoots with such American fundraising experts as Karl Rove and Newt Gingrich on the project [pic of Donal Blaney and Karl Rove]. Just to tie up this example with a neat bow, the Prime Minister, David Cameron is on board with the Library project, according to Patrick Hennessy, who links him to foreign fundraisers in this way: “…John Howard, the former Australian prime minister, Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the House of Representatives in the US, Fred Ryan, President Reagan’s chief of staff and Karl Rove, who performed the same role for President George W Bush.”

It gets worse. Donal Blaney is CEO of Conservative Way Forward, which is the entity actually in charge of the fundraising for the Thatcher Library.

Donal Blaney’s Pyrrhic Victory

Those getting their news from the press and broadcast media might have thought that the bullying scandal engulfing the Tory Party had gone quiet: far from it. Investigations into the death of Elliott Johnson, and the wider culture of less than upstanding and principled behaviour among those involved with The Blue Team, especially with its younger members, have continued apace. And then there is the legal argument.

One reason the Mail On Sunday’s political editor Simon Walters has taken time out from this story is that his paper has been subjected to a series of missives from Messrs Carter-Ruck, the notorious and reassuringly expensive lawyers, on behalf of one Donal Blaney, himself a solicitor, whose legal practice in Kent is also the registered office of the Thatcherite pressure group Conservative Way Forward.

It had been rumoured some weeks ago that Blaney had gone to Carter-Ruck to lean on the press; what was not known was which paper, or papers, had been targeted, or indeed what he sought to achieve by doing this. Now we know: the MoS has issued a clarification. “On December 20, in two articles under the headings ‘Bullying scandal: Another top Tory resigns’ and ‘The Tatler Tory, the youth wing godfather… and the bullying scandal poisoning Mrs Thatcher’s legacy’, we said Donal Blaney had been forced to resign in disgrace as chairman of Conservative Way Forward (CWF) because of his links to the ‘Tatler Tory’ scandal” it begins. There is more.

We would like to make clear that Mr Blaney announced he was resigning because he needed to spend increasing time in the US to take care of his sick wife and his expanding legal business there. He says he was not forced to resign in disgrace. He has said he regrets having had any involvement with Mark Clarke which he ended some time ago”.

And yet more: “In addition, Mr Blaney points out that Lord Feldman played no role in his appointment at CWF; his auction purchase of £200,000 of Thatcher memorabilia was on behalf of a client; that he spent his own money to underwrite the Young Britons’ Foundation (YBF); and that the YBF conference in December was postponed, not cancelled. We are happy to make this clear and apologise to Mr Blaney for any misunderstanding”. So Blaney got an apology.

But then the thought enters that there is no mention of damages or costs. My information is that Blaney did not get any damages from the MoS. That means he would have had to settle Carter-Ruck’s bill himself, which may have come to several thousand pounds.

On top of that, Blaney’s actions have not gone down at all well with some of those in the Conservative Party’s youth wing. One source there told Zelo Street on condition of anonymity that Publicly celebrating trivial newspaper retractions when a young man has committed suicide is very bad taste. Before he killed himself, Elliott Johnson suffered verbal abuse and threats from Andre Walker and was made redundant by Donal Blaney as well as being bullied by Mark Clarke. And there was more.

Perhaps Blaney and  Walker could offer to make a donation from the Young Britons Foundation to the Johnson family and help them rebuild their lives, instead of celebrating whilst a family is in mourning at the death of their son?

Or, as it seems, perhaps not: Blaney has taken to social media, with king size onion and nanoviolin, to tell “I am grateful to Messrs Carter-Ruck for their wise counsel, and to those friends and family whose support never wavered”. Not the Johnson family, though, eh?

“Donal Blaney relates the funniest moment...

In an innuendo-laden series of speeches, Iain’s sister, Tracey caused the greatest mirth of the day. She made some obtuse reference to masturbation – only for the throng to dissolve into giggles when an eight-year-old child asked, a little too loudly, ‘what’s masturbation, Daddy?’. Priceless.”

The bizarre scene on the Brighton seafront saw Mr Dale grappling with anti-nuclear campaigner Stuart Holmes.

It was the self-righteous arrogance and unrestrained superiority that really disgusted everyone. That damage has already been done and an apology cannot erase it.
Mr Dale’s personality shone through in this instance, and we discovered an egocentric and incredibly arrogant man who truly believes that people who inconvenience him deserve some form of silencing or punishment.

David Cameron defends Rwanda trip

More than 40 Tory volunteers are transforming a once-derelict orphanage into a school and have been working on aid projects in the country for the past week.

The Conservative policy group, headed by former cabinet minister Peter Lilley, is to propose new ways in making the delivery of aid more transparent, with an independent body to monitor how much government aid gets to those who really need it.

Criticisms that the trip is a publicity junket – David Cameron is here for just 48 hours before flying home for Prime Minister’s Questions – have drawn prompt rebuttals, stressing “experience exchanges” and “lasting legacies”.

David Cameron statement on death of West Oxfordshire Conservative Chairman Christopher Shale

Following the death of the Chairman of the West Oxfordshire Conservative Association, Christopher Shale (pictured), David Cameron released the following statement:

“Sam and I were devastated to hear the news about Christopher. He was a great friend and has been a huge support over the last decade in west Oxfordshire. A big rock in my life has suddenly been rolled away. Christopher was one of the most truly generous people I’ve ever met – he was always giving to others, his time, his help, his enthusiasm and above all his love of life. It was in that spirit that he made a massive contribution to the Conservative Party both locally and nationally. Our love and prayers are with Nikki and the family. They’ve lost an amazing dad, west Oxfordshire has lost a big and wonderful man and like so many others Sam and I have lost a close and valued friend.”

Mr Shale was found dead in a portable toilet at the Glastonbury festival earlier today. There are conflicting reports as to the cause of death. Some talk of a heart attack, some of suicide. A paper he had written on party membership had been prominently reported in today’s Mail on Sunday.

He had been an annual participant in the Conservative Party’s Project Umubano in Rwanda. This is what he wrote on the party website:

“2011 is my fifth visit to Rwanda with the Project. I’ve never missed one trip, and I hope I never will. I have hundreds of happy moments from Rwanda. It has always been such a mix of people, all ages and talents, learning from and laughing with our Rwandan partners – some of the most inspirational people I have ever met. I’d urge people to do whatever necessary to raise the money to visit Umubano.”

Project Umubano

Mitchell led large groups of Conservative volunteers from a wide range of professions, including doctors, teachers, lawyers and entrepreneurs, in social development projects in Rwanda for three consecutive summers, from 2007 to 2009, as part of Project Umubano,[12] and kept a detailed diary of their activities and experiences.[13][14] The volunteers focused on five areas: health, education, justice, the private sector, and a community centre construction project.[15] In 2008, Mitchell himself taught English to over a thousand Rwandan primary school teachers.[16] It was during one of these trips that Mitchell and his aides are reported to have verbally abused one of the volunteers, a student journalist who had circulated a draft newspaper article she had written stressing the positives of the project, but also pointing out some problems with its operation. The journalist, Lucy Kinder, claimed Mitchell texted her father, a friend from Mitchell’s university days: “They [his aides] are threatening her with physical violence and I can’t say I blame them.”[17]

Aid to Rwanda

On his final day as International Development Secretary, Mitchell authorised the payment of £16 million of previously suspended aid to Rwanda, half of Britain’s annual aid to Rwanda. The aid had been suspended in July, along with other governments’ aid, over concerns about Rwanda’s alleged support of the rebel March 23 Movement in east Democratic Republic of the Congo.[29][30] Mitchell’s successor stopped further aid payments as Rwanda had breached agreements,[31] and following the publication of a United Nations Security Council investigators’ report which provided evidence that Rwanda had supplied guns, money and recruits to the rebels contrary to United Nations Security Council Resolution 1807,[32] and engaged directly in combat to help the rebels capture territory.[33]

The International Development Select Committee launched an inquiry into the suspending, then subsequent authorisation, of budget support to Rwanda.[34] On 30 November 2012 the committee published its report criticising Mitchell for restoring the funding, stating “We do not understand how [Mitchell] reached the conclusion that support for the M23 had ceased”, which was one of the three conditions that the Prime Minister had set for the resumption of aid.[35][36]

But it wasn’t Mossad who were after him. The killers, he claims, were from one of Britain;s closest African allies. Mr Mutabazi, who served fro 20 years as President Kagame’s bodyguard.

Genocide memorial

Of the Sunday Telegraph report he said: “I read the story and I just concluded that there was very little in it.”

More than 40 Tory volunteers are transforming a once-derelict orphanage into a school and have been working on aid projects in the country for the past week.

Mr Cameron, who is staying for one night, will lay a wreath at a memorial for victims of the country’s 1994 genocide, which cost the lives of more than 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus.

Soon after arriving he took a tour of a Kigali textile factory and promised its owner, Raj Rejendran, to raise the issue of UK duty on silk imports with the UK government.

Mr Cameron will renew his party’s commitment to boost aid to the UN target of 0.7% of national income, over the next six years.

The Conservative policy group, headed by former cabinet minister Peter Lilley, is to propose new ways in making the delivery of aid more transparent, with an independent body to monitor how much government aid gets to those who really need it.

Criticisms that the trip is a publicity junket – David Cameron is here for just 48 hours before flying home for Prime Minister’s Questions – have drawn prompt rebuttals, stressing “experience exchanges” and “lasting legacies”.

At Girubuntu School, attended by 80 orphans aged under seven, the team is building one classroom, re-roofing another and giving two lavatories running water.

Jeremy Hunt, the shadow culture secretary, is coaching rural English teachers. Lady Fiona Hodgson, chairman of the Conservative women’s association, is advising female empowerment organisations.

David Mundell MP, a solicitor, is teaching English common law at Rwanda’s justice ministry in the capital, Kigali. Andrew Mitchell, the shadow development secretary, is leading the Rwanda trip.

“As parliamentarians, we talk incessantly about the problems facing the developing world,” said Tobias Ellwood, the MP for Bournemouth East, who is helping rebuild the school.

Sceptics say the exercise harks back to “the West knows best” aid theories, now discarded by most international agencies.

At Girubuntu School, 51 local labourers have been hired at a dollar a day above the going rate.

But the foreigners are clearly in charge, striding around in safari shorts with power saws, to be donated when they leave.

Construction work is a skill that is very often available in abundance locally,” said Frank Harle, of Students Partnership Worldwide, a London-based gap year organisation which uses local as well as international volunteers.

“Assuming that this needs to be led by individuals from developed countries is arrogant and patronising to the very people that they are supposedly intending to help.”

The volunteers say there is to be a “lasting legacy” from the trip. A dozen schools across Rwanda will be twinned with counterparts in Tory-held constituencies in Britain. Clinics are to be given doctors’ manuals at a cut price, and further visits are planned.


 Andrew Mitchell is currently a Trustee of International Inspiration – a charity that promotes access to sport, play and physical exercise in low and middle income countries around the world.[60] He sits on the Board of Trustees alongside Sebastian Coe, Katherine Grainger and David Davies (Iain Dale acted as chief of staff to the losing leadership candidate David Davis in the run-up to the 2005 Conservative Party leadership campaign.[6] ).
In 1988, under Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Andrew Mitchell became PPS to William Waldegrave, who was Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. In 1990, he became PPS to John Wakeham, who was Secretary of State for Energy. In 1992, under John Major, he became Vice-Chairman of the Conservative Party, and in the same year was appointed as an Assistant Government Whip. In 1993, he became a Government Whip. In 1995, he became Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department of Social Security, a position he held until 1997.

*Stephen Crabb* – A glance at the Register of Interests shows trips to various exotic destinations being paid for by a whole host of organisations, including Christian Aid, Oxfam Novib, International Alert, ActionAid and Christian Solidarity Worldwide (president Jonathan Aitken, former jailbird and disgraced ex-Tory minister) . In 2005 on another visit to India, we read that flights were paid for by Dr Liam Fox’s office with a donation from a man described as a Middlesex businessman called Stanley Fink

Stanley Fink would appear to be the same Stanley Fink who is co-treasurer of the Conservative Party, a hedge fund manager and pal of Lord Levy. Lord Levy, it will be remembered, is Tony Blair’s friend who was interviewed by the police as part of the Cash for Honours scandal. What a small world.

(Crabb)…fretting about the far-flung Christians of Orissa and Burma, and championing Israeli security. In the recent scandal involving Dr Liam Fox, we learned of an agenda to strengthen ties with the American Right and Israel, with a motley mix of arms dealers, Tea Party lunatics and Christian fundamentalists trying to shape government policy here

The interest in the fate of Christians in far-flung places, and Mr Crabb‘s unswerving support for Israel may well be explained by his membership of CARE (Christian Action Research and Education)

Jonathan Aitken-

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.

From Dando obituary

The Guardian 27 April 1999

Jill Dando wrote to Jimmy Savile when he was doing the Jim’ll Fix It show.


DID SAVILE ORDER JILL DANDO’S MURDER? Sunday Sport 27-11-16, p5

The Crimestoppers helpline, run by Nick Ross, conveniently stopped working when an appeal was made for information about Jill’s murder.

Ross, who recently said he’d watch child-porn given half the chance, is married to the cousin of Esther Rantzen.

Rantzen runs the Childline charity and has been accused of ignoring the victims of Savile at the BBC.

According to the Spectator:

Lord Finkelstein is closer by far to George Osborne. One senior Times writer told me three years ago that he spoke ‘six or seven times a day. probably more’ to the Chancellor. Mr Osborne once reportedly remarked that he spoke to Mr Finkelstein more often then he did to his wife. But when Mr Osborne appeared in front of Lord Justice Leveson, the following exchange occurred:

Q. ‘Does he [Finkelstein] act for you as a sort of unpaid adviser and/or speech writer?

A. ‘No, he’s just a very good friend.

In 2012, for some unknown reason, Finkelstein wrote an article for the Times, entitled, ‘The dead can’t enter a plea of guilty’.

The article appeared to cast doubt on the abuse claims made against Cyril Smith and Jimmy Savile.

LBC radio presenter Iain Dale

A brief stint as a member of the Liberal Party was brought to a swift end by the influence of Margaret Thatcher.

“She inspired me to get involved properly in politics. She was an amazing leader, and a leader for that time – Britain needed a strong leader who was going to carry out some important surgery to the economy.

“She turned the economy round in a way that people now don’t seem to appreciate. She was the greatest prime minister this country has had since the war.”

In 2002, he would sit next to her during an event in London; “she was very good company” he recalled.

1987 Iain Dale – I spent two years working in the House of Commons after leaving university in the summer of 1985. I was working for two Tory MPs, Patrick Thompson (Norwich North) and Robert Key (Salisbury).

I very nearly became Special Adviser to Norman Fowler, the Employment Secretary, who had been impressed with my work for the port employers. But he the went and resigned to spend more time with his family. They asked me if I’d be interested in working for Michael Howard, his successor. “No,” I said. “I don’t think we’d get on.” I could have been David Cameron…! I was then offered the job of Dame Shirley Porter’s re-election campaign manager. They wouldn’t pay me what I wanted so I declined. A narrow escape. I then had three interviews with Ian Greer Associates. I shall never forget a giant poodle walking into the room during one of the interviews. I was offered a post, but there was some instinct that told me it just wouldn’t work. Another narrow escape. The next job to come along was as a consultant at the giant PR firm Charles Barker. I was charmed into taking the job by Evie Soames, a doyen of the lobbying industry. Nick Herbert was her star employee at the time. I hated it. I hated being used as a pimp. Vauxhall Motors were a client. All they wanted to do was be photographed with the Transport Secretary Cecil Parkinson. (Even after Parkinson’s disgrace, Thatcher remained loyal to her party’s fallen idol, bringing him back into her government in 1987 as energy and then transport secretary.)

After leaving Loretto in 1967 – it is not clear whether he was sacked or resigned – Mr Ray-Hills moved to Cheam Preparatory School in Newbury, where former pupils include Prince Charles and Prince Philip.

However, the scandal followed him south and he was asked to leave there.

In 2001, film director Don Boyd claimed he had been sexually abused by former master Guy Anthony Ray-Hills.

Ray-Hills was charged with a string of sex offences but the case was dropped on grounds of his ill health.

Sexually abused during his time at Loretto School, Don Boyd returns to Edinburgh
He agrees that ultimately Loretto failed him – and other boys abused by Ray-Hills during the 16 years he taught at the Musselburgh school.

Robert Key taught economics at Harrow School from 1969–83.

Mr Key didn’t get involved in politics until he was 29. He’d studied music at Clare College, Cambridge, where his student days were free of politics, before going on to teach economics.

But it was in a teaching position at Harrow that he came very close, on a daily basis, to the political world.

“I was teaching a lot of children of politicians there.

“My mark book every morning included people like Thatcher, Hestletine, Churchill… I hadn’t got a chance of not getting interested in politics.”

Mr Key went on to become Ted Heath’s Private Parliamentary Secretary.

“I had some wonderful years with Ted Heath. I was his PPS for nearly two years during which time I found him his house in Salisbury and brought him down here which he absolutely adored.

“It was the first house he’d owned in his life.

“I also had the experience of finding out what it was that motivated that man.

“It was wonderful hearing what he was doing when he was my age and younger, going off to Germany to see the Hitler rallies to see what was brewing.

So what now for a man who has spent so much of his life involved in politics?

A member of Wessex Archaeology, Mr Key will be continuing his work to improve ancient heritage sites – most notably Stonehenge.

“I’ll be doing stuff with the Cathedral and the Diocese. I’ll be involved in the selection of a new Bishop.

Robert Key resigns as trustee of former prime minister Sir Edward Heath’s charity in funding row

Key stepped down after a last-minute business plan was put forward to re-open the late Sir Edward Heath’s historical Salisbury property to the public this summer. Key opposed the proposition, claiming the £7 million house should instead be sold with the money being used for grants for young people with interests in music and sailing.

Sir David Napley is something of a specialist in delicate cases of this kind. His previous clients included Jeremy Thorpe QC, the bi-sexual former leader of the Liberal Party, who entertained murderous thoughts about his indiscreet former lover, Norman Scott, and who employed hit-men to frighten Scott by shooting his dog; Harvey Proctor, the Gay right wing former Conservative MP who consorted with teenage rent-boys in order to live out his teacher/schoolboy caning fantasies; and an unfortunate senior police officer, Commander Trestrail, the personal bodyguard of H.M. The Queen, who was unlucky in his choice of a gay bar pick-up . . . to mention but three.

Shortly after Napley issued his statement about Janner, the then Director of Public Prosecutions, Alan Green, “let it be known” that Janner had nothing to fear as far as prosecution was concerned “for lack of evidence”. Yet, according to Chaney, Paul Winston had been able to provide the Police with information about Janner’s home, hotel rooms, life, habits and person in such intimate and verifiable detail that it could not possibly have been invented and which he could only have come to know as a result of an illicit relationship.

JEREMY THORPE: NYE Requests Attempted Murder & Suspicious Disappearance Investigation Re-Opened

Image result for princess margaret and jeremy thorpe

Thorpe was a close friend of Princess Margaret and of Anthony Armstrong-Jones. Thorpe was at one time under consideration to be Armstrong-Jones’s best man when he married Princess Margaret, but enquiries with Devon & Cornwall Police revealed that he was known to be homosexual. He remained close friends with the Royal couple, nevertheless.

MI5 would have had a close interest in Thorpe. Certainly, no Detective from Essex CID in a local station would have interviewed and taken a statement from a suspect in a serious crime being investigated by Devon & Cornwall Police, that involved a prominent MP. This would certainly have been within the remit of Special Branch only.

In turn the Branch would not have got involved without the express consent of MI5. The conclusion is inescapable that the detectives that interviewed Mr Meighan in Brentwood Police Station were from the Metropolitan Police Special Branch, operating on the orders of MI5.

Paedophile Clement Freud and Jeremy Thorpe

Iain Dale: Back in the early 1970s my mother used to be besotted with Jeremy Thorpe and was a Liberal voter until the, er, events of the mid 1970s.

My sister then got to know him in the 1980s through his work at the United Nations Association. So to publish his book was an experience I shall never forget, but it was largely down to Marion, as well as Jeremy, that I shall treasure that time,

John and I became quite friendly with them and enjoyed several meals at Orme Square and we stayed at their beloved North Devon home one weekend…

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

Jeremy Thorpe, along with Leon Brittan and paedophile Sir Cyril Smith used to visit PIE member Keith Harding at his antique shop.

One of Harding‘s staff, who worked for him between 1980 and 1987, said: “Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith were both regular visitors to the shop.Usually they would come in via the side door, other times they would ring the bell at the front entrance and come in.
“They’d straight away ask for Keith who would be coming down the stairs. “Then they would then either go up to his office for a private meeting or they’d go out for several hours.”

A former worker said: “The shop had many high profile customers, including the Royals, because we were one of the few antique dealers in the world that specialised in restoring clocks, music boxes and automatons.

Harding was a paedophile, GCHQ Freemason, friend of Sir Jimmy Savile.

 Via his Politico’s bookstore, which held events – he schmoozed with all the bigwigs

A BOOKSHOP site that was once a meeting ground for Britain’s leading politicians is poised to see its shutters pulled down for good this week.

David Cameron, Alastair Campbell and Ken Livingstone were among the figures who shopped at the independent store in Artillery Row, off Victoria Street, which housed the famous Politico’s bookstore until 2004.

Iain Dale, the blogger and the former owner of Politico’s, said a star-studded list of political figures would make the short walk from the House of Commons to join book launches and debates at the shop.

The Greatest Experiences of My Life

Dinner with Margaret Thatcher
To celebrate Politico’s fifth birthday we organised a dinner at The Savoy in early 2002. Margaret Thatcher was to be the guest of honour. However, three weeks before the event she suffered a stroke and was banned from speaking in public. She, Denis and Carol still came, however. I sat next to the Iron Lady throughout and she was very good company, and quite funny. I was told I had to stop her grabbing the microphone, and I was successful in this until right at the end of the meal she made a beeline from the podium to thank the assembled throngs. All I remember was putting my arm around her waist and pulling her away!

Being Selected in North Norfolk
It was September 28 2003. I had told the North Norfolk Conservatives selection committee I was gay, and the 200 people at the general meeting selected me, giving me 66% of the vote on the first ballot. I walked away from that meeting as if I was floating on air. I remember Theresa May calling to congratulate me.

Meeting the Queen
Back in 2002 John and I were invited to a reception for the book industry at Buckingham Palace. There were 800 people present so I doubted we would actually get to meet Her Majesty. John, who is normally not one to push himself forward, worked out that if we stood in a certain place, The Queen would have to walk past. So that’s where we plonked ourselves and sure enough, a few minutes later we found ourselves talking to her. She was very easy to talk to and I remember her throwing her head back and laughing uproariously at something I said. Sadly I can’t remember what it was. We explained that our bookshop was only a few hundred yards away from the Palace in Artillery Row, but she clearly had no idea where that was. Why should she? I also remember her being incredibly tiny, and people trying to inveigle themselves into the conversation.

Visiting Number Ten for the First Time
My first tentative footstep into the political arena was to set up a Conservative organization in 1982 at the very left-wing University of East Anglia. Only a few months later followed my first encounter with Margaret Thatcher when she invited the chairmen of the various University Conservative Associations to a reception at Number Ten. For a country boy like me, it was unbelievable to have been invited and it was something I had been looking forward to for months. Just to climb those stairs, with the portraits of all past Prime Ministers on the walls was worth the trip on its own. And there at the top of the stairs was the Prime Minister. She had obviously perfected the art of welcoming people to receptions and as she shook you by the hand and wished you a good evening, she moved you on into the room without you even knowing she was doing it. Most of the Cabinet were there – I remember discussing with Cecil Parkinson the number of free running shoes he had been sent after a recent profile had announced to the world that he was a keen runner. He offered me a pair but it turned out his feet were much smaller than mine! We were constantly plied with wine and I made a mental note to stop at two glasses. But after the second glass was emptied I felt rather self-conscious without a glass in my hand so grabbed another. Just as the Prime Minister walked by I took a sip. All I remember is my stomach heaving and me thinking that I was about to throw up at the Prime Minister’s feet, thus ending a glorious political career which had hardly got off the ground. Luckily I managed to control my stomach and all was well. It turned out that it was whisky in the glass, rather than white wine.

First trip to the USA
When i was working for Patrick Thompson MP at the House of Commons he had an intern called Mark Milosch. In the summer of 1987 I went to visit Mark in Ann Arbor in Michigan for a month. And what a month it was. We spent ten days of it embarking on a 3,000 mile trip right round America, starting in Detroit, heading up to northern Michigan, across the northern states to the Badlands and Yellowstone, down through Utah, into Arizona, through the Grand Canyon, into Texas, visiting Southfork (!) and heading back to Michigan via Memphis and Kentucky. And all in a ten year old Buick. An experience of a lifetime.

(2016 U.S. Helsinki Commission : Dr. Milosch was appointed Chief of Staff by Commission Chairman Rep. Chris Smith. He is responsible to work with Commission staff in achieving the Chairman’s goals, and for liaison on behalf of the Chairman with Commissioners, other Members of Congress, the executive branch, foreign governments, and intergovernmental organizations and NGOs. He also advises the Chairman on foreign policy toward the OSCE and the organization’s 57 participating states, as well as partner states. He serves as Chairman Smith’s principal advisor regarding the Commission’s program of hearings, briefings, special events, and advocacy on human rights, commercial and security issues connected to the OSCE.

Trip to Rwanda
Back in July 2007 I joined Andrew Mitchell and 50 volunteers for a 5 day trip to Rwanda. I was there to film a documentary for 18 Doughty Street internet TV. The volunteers were there to take part in social action projects. What a fascinating country. I kept a diary. Click on the links. Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5

First day working at the House of Commons

Back in the summer of 1985 my first job out of university was being research assistant to Norwich North MP Patrick Thompson. On my first day I remember waling down the corridor which leads from Central Lobby in the Houses of Parliament to the House of Lords and encountering former PM James Callaghan and ex President Gerald Ford walking the other way. I remember being in complete awe and wondering what a boy from Essex was doing working in a place like that. After three weeks I got used to it but there’s still that little bit of a thrill whenever I walk into the building.

Opening Politico’s Bookstore
In May 1996 I left my job at The Waterfront Partnership very acrimoniously. I decided to open a political bookshop in Westminster which is what I did in February 1997.

In July last year, Neil Hamilton, a trade minister, and his wife, Christine, were visiting a shirt shop in Richmond, southwest London, owned by Harvey Proctor, who resigned as MP for Billericay in 1987 after being involved in a sex scandal. Isleworth Crown Court, west London, was told that James Coomber and David Parker entered the shop and became abusive, asking Mr Proctor: “Have you any ties for tying up rent boys before you spank them?”

Laud is still to this very day, very good friends with the Hamiltons. Their long  friendship had first begun in the early 1980’s when Laud had worked for Strategy Network International (SNI), a lobbying company linked with apartheid South Africa and UNITA, the Angolan armed opposition group.

It would seem that Laud had recommended the recruitment of both Neil Hamilton  and his fellow Tory MP Michael Colvin  as consultants for SNI.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s Strategy Network International paid for Conservative MPs to visit South Africa. Conservative MPs Neil Hamilton and both failed to declare the trips on the members register of interests. Former Prime Minister David Cameron also took advantage of a Strategy Network International trip to South Africa in 1989. The trip was offered to the Conservative Research Department by Derek Laud, who was employed by SNI and was later a contestant on the reality tv series Big Brother.

A close friend of Harvey Proctor was Wilf Proudfoot, PPS to Keith Joseph.

Hillsborough families criticise police chief over witch-hunt claim in book

Sir Norman Bettison claims in Hillsborough Untold that there was never a conspiracy to blame supporters for the disaster

Sir Norman Bettison, the former chief constable of Merseyside police, has been criticised by families of people unlawfully killed at Hillsborough in 1989 for writing a book about the disaster in which he portrays himself as the victim of a witch-hunt.

and another :

When the news broke last weekend that Britain’s Nick Ross, of “Crimewatch” fame, made some controversial statements about rape, I assumed we were seeing a return to the debate last raised by Ken Clarke when he was justice secretary, as to whether society should recognize in law that there are varying levels of severity with rape.

There are few crimes more severe than rape, as beyond the act itself, the perpetrator is submitting the victim to a lifetime of mental anguish that can often, sadly, lead to a lifetime of depression and self-loathing.

…the released excerpts then descend into little other than a bizarre rant that seemingly places the blame for rape on scantily clad women — comparing them to “a laptop left on the backseat of a car.”

It became the subject of a call-in show the other night with Iain Dale, who it was revealed was the publisher of the book (via Biteback Publishing). Dale said Ross “has a point,” and then took to haplessly defending its stance — which prompted a tirade of righteous disagreement and indignation from callers.

The exchange, thankfully, served to make a mockery of his and Ross’ position

The important information is the following: in Righton’s diaries, he frequently referred to Benjamin Britten, Peter Pears and Michael Davidson as ‘fellow boy-lovers’, and also spoke of how important to him (Righton) were their get-togethers at Snape Maltings.

Both Richard Alston and Peter Righton are also thanked in the preface to Donald Mitchell’s book Britten and Auden in the Thirties: The Year 1936: The T.S. Eliot Memorial Lectures delivered in the University of Kent at Canterbury in November 1979 (London: Faber, 1981):

I am much indebted to Richard Alston without whose dedicated editorial assistance I should have found it difficult to see this revised edition through the press. [….] and to Peter Righton for correcting proofs.

Righton is also listed as a translator of some text in Mitchell’s facsimile edition of Mahler’s Seventh Symphony (Amsterdam: Rosbeek Publishers, 1995), and of some of Donald Mitchell and Andrew Nicholson (eds), The Mahler Companion (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1999). Mitchell was very close to Britten, edited the first major study of his work, Benjamin Britten : a commentary on his works from a group of specialists (London: Rockliff, 1952), and later became Britten’s principal publisher at Faber Music, becoming a senior trustee of the Britten-Pears Foundation after Britten’s death in 1976. He has also been general editor of the major collections of Britten’s letters and diaries published by Faber & Faber.

As well as teaching, he coached girls’ hockey teams and specialised in supervising adventure trips for pupils.

As head of religious education, this child was in his care and in his trust and was vulnerable at the time.”

Tapply, who has been in custody since he was arrested last May, is expected to be released by November after serving half his sentence. John Arkell, headmaster at Gresham’s, said that although Tapply’s behaviour was “deceitful” there was little the school could have done to prevent it.

VIP abuse accuser ‘manipulated by news website Exaro’

November 11 2016,

Detectives investigating the man who made false allegations about a Westminster paedophile ring have been told that he was manipulated by a news website.

Northumbria police have been asked to investigate whether the complainant, identified only as Nick, fabricated allegations against figures including Lord Brittan of Spennithorne, the late home secretary, and Lord Bramall, the former chief of the defence staff.

It is understood that officers will investigate the relationship between Nick and the Exaro website, which was first to publish his allegations before it closed in July.

Exaro

Tim Pendry founded Exaro in 2012, he’s a director of the British Syrian Society, as are David Steel, Lord Henniker’s son-in-law, Wafic Said & assorted diplomats, arms dealers & spooks. He’s the nephew of alleged offender Lord Tom Pendry (friend of convicted paedophile Stuart Hall) & worked for a pressure group financed by the Goldsmith family. In the early 90’s he was a leading figure in DEMOS which he himself said was used for ‘much more sinister political ends’ by what he terms the ‘centralist national security state.’

THEY ARE GATEKEEPERS WORKING FOR THE SECURITY SERVICES.

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…

30 September 2016

Mansfield suggested Emmerson, whom he described as a “colleague and a friend”, had been unfairly treated by Jay. He said: “He is not abrasive. He is very sharp. His mind is well tuned to all the issues that are necessary and I think most people would have complete confidence in his intellectual abilities.”

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.

Charles Manson claims Roman Polanski was involved in child porn

CHARLES MANSON WRITES FROM PRISON

POLANSKI

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.

Moneybags QC Michael Mansfield finds a lover 22 years his junior

The radical QC, famed for helping overturn the convictions of the Birmingham Six and alleged Jill Dando killer Barry George, was reported this week to have been arrested, then released without charge after a night in the cells, over an alleged assault at a hot tub party.
Miss Greenway, a divorced mother-of-two, was until a few years ago an accounts clerk, but after taking an Open University course in her 40s she began interviewing downmarket comedians. 

She bizarrely describes herself as a ‘documentalist’, and also publishes a blog. But Miss Greenway, who calls herself Anna Christian, has suddenly found a deep interest in Left-wing politics after meeting Mansfield.

Their relationship began when she interviewed him for her online video channel

On Greenway’s website, Mansfield offers a glowing testimonial to her journalistic skills. It does not reveal that they are lovers.

Before her conversion to support for Palestine and other campaigns, her blogs and tweets had been notably more downmarket.

  • 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

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

Soldier who helped organise ‘paedophile parties’ to ‘block out’ trauma of serving in Afghanistan jailed indefinitely

  • Household cavalry soldier Simon Wyn-Davies, 38, will serve minimum of 11 and a half years in prison
  • 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.

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.

left-wing ‘goliath’ of global litigation, Benedict Emmerson QC,  on the shoulder.
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.

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.

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

link

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.

link

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

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]

Hansard Debate: Macur review

22 Mar 2016 : Column 550WH

Liz Saville Roberts

I turn to redactions: the removal of names and details by which people might be identified. On my count—I may be wrong, although I counted twice— there are 633 redactions in the report. Although many will be duplications, the Secretary of State and the Minister must appreciate that that number is extremely high.

The previous Secretary of State for Wales, the right hon. Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire, said in his statement last week that redactions had been “kept to a minimum”. While I, and I am sure many people here, accept that some redactions must be made, particularly given the ongoing court proceedings and the potential for further actions, I put it to the House that to claim that redactions in the report have been kept to a minimum is frankly disingenuous.

I am particularly concerned about the extremely high number of redactions in chapters 7 and 8 on freemasonry and establishment figures respectively.

Lady Justice Macur made recommendations in her report to the Secretaries of State on what should be redacted in the published report. She said:

“It is for the Secretaries of State to determine any further redaction of my Report weighing public interest with the caution”.

The previous Secretary of State also said that the rationale behind making the redactions, as set out in the letters to the Secretaries of State by the Treasury Solicitor and the director general of propriety and ethics, “explain the reasons…fully”.

However, I put it to the Minister that those justifications are weak and bland. I sympathise with the views expressed by victims and by the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, as just mentioned, who believe that the UK Government need to be more open about the process by which redactions were made.

First, I ask the Minister to tell the House how many redactions were made in addition to those suggested by Lady Macur.

Secondly, will he publish further information about why those additional redactions were made and what the process was in coming to a decision on them?

Especially alarming—possibly more so—are the numerous serious cases of missing or destroyed evidence at several different points during the various inquiries.

Lady Justice Macur’s report refers to individuals who have implied in written evidence that they hold information about abusers who were not investigated by the police or the tribunal.

She states that following an interview with—redacted name—she made a request for materials said by that person to be relevant to the review and stored by a solicitor. She goes on to say that that solicitor had since left the relevant practice and that the files in question were destroyed. She even says that the person at the firm dealing with her request recalled that, before the files were destroyed, the solicitor in question had visited the office and

“may have taken any documents he considered worthy of retention.”

22 Mar 2016 : Column 551WH

The report states that the solicitor in question had failed to respond to correspondence from Lady Macur. Does the Minister consider that a satisfactory conclusion to that line of inquiry?

Is simply ignoring correspondence until the problem goes away all one needs to do to get away with a crime? Even ignoring the allegation that the solicitor may have removed evidence, is the Minister satisfied that it would be standard practice to destroy recently archived data?

Unfortunately, that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to missing or destroyed evidence. The greatest cause for concern in relation to the process and documentation is of course the fate of the Waterhouse tribunal’s evidence originally handed over to the Welsh Office in 1998. Those documents—it says this in the report—were supposed to be archived securely for 75 years. That did not happen. The evidence received scant respect at the Welsh Office and it was then shuffled over to the Welsh Government.

This is simply a catalogue of data mismanagement: dependency on technology that becomes dated and corrupted; destruction of hardware and tapes; boxes of evidence in disorder; and a reference index that lists 718 boxes while only 398 were initially made available. It remains unclear how many boxes of evidence were finally handed over to Lady Justice Macur, but documents were still coming to light on 1 December last year. It should be noted that the report was presented on 10 December. That methodology does not instil confidence.

The significance of the destroyed computer database cannot be overestimated. That was the record of all documentation. Against that database, if extant, it would have been possible to come to a view as to whether significant evidence was present or missing. Macur states:

It is impossible to confidently report that I have seen all the documentation that was before the Tribunal.”

We cannot therefore come empirically to an opinion on whether material has been lost, removed or concealed.

Ann Clwyd (Cynon Valley) (Lab): I interviewed six young men some years ago in the Cynon Valley. Those boys were taken to north Wales, and that may be true of boys from other parts of south Wales as well. This is talked about as the north Wales abuse inquiry, but it is sometimes forgotten that the children came from all over Wales. Those boys’ reports were harrowing, as Members can imagine. It is an absolute disgrace that there are so many missing documents; I entirely agree with the hon. Lady. Where have they gone? Who is responsible? Lots of the evidence given to the Jillings report, which preceded the Waterhouse inquiry, has also gone missing. Where is it? Who did that, and what were they hiding?

Liz Saville Roberts: I agree. There is a history, as the right hon. Lady mentioned, of a loss of evidence associated with child abuse. I refer also to the Geoffrey Dickens dossier. I ask the Minister to consider whether victims and survivors of abuse in Wales—not only north Wales, of course—can, in all honesty, be satisfied with the findings of this report.

Now that the Macur review has been published, we are left with the overall lasting impression that documentation and process have been more important than securing justice for the victims and survivors of the abuse that was perpetrated, which should have been the overarching responsibility and purpose of the review.

Symptomatic of that concern for documentation and process rather than for the victims and survivors of abuse was the failure to speak to them individually.

The review held a public session in Wrexham in June 2013. The review’s website states that, on that day, Lady Justice Macur

“met privately with anyone who asked to do so”

and that the review

“met with numerous individuals with relevant information.”

However, I have spoken with one of the survivors, Keith Gregory, who is a point of contact for other victims and survivors of abuse, and he has informed me that arrangements for interviews were forgotten by the review.

In any event, 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, and I think it

is very important and very appropriate that the Children’s Commissioner for Wales has written to the Secretary of State for Wales, saying that

“more can be done to communicate many of the omissions to be found in the report, and seek a greater level of transparency to be afforded to victims. As such, I call on the UK Government to issue a statement explaining the methodology used for redacting the publically available Macur Review Report, giving a full rationale for the changes made. Without an understanding of the approach employed by the Government’s lawyers, many will continue to question whether there has been protection of individuals because of their position in society, rather than because there are ongoing criminal investigations, or if there is no evidence against them.”

Some of the people whose names have been redacted are dead, so there will not be any continuing criminal investigations as far as they are concerned, and it is very difficult to understand why these redactions have been made and what element of principle is involved. We need that information because we have to try to persuade our constituents that our political system is not rotten and that it does afford them some element of protection.

The Queen Mother is the daughter of the 14th Earl of Strathmore. Her sister was married to the 4th Earl of Granville, whose granddaughter, Lady Marcia is married to Jonathan Bulmer.

The 2nd Earl of Granville’s daughter was the grandmother of James Morrison, Lord Margadale.


When we arrived in Chester in 1991, the word on the street was that Peter was ‘a disgusting pervert’. Out canvassing, knocking on doors in the large council estates, we were told that Morrison was a monster who interfered with children.

The first, and only, official acknowledgement of my predecessor’s possible involvement in child abuse came my way in 1996, when William Hague, then Secretary of State for Wales, came up to me in the Commons to let me know that he had ordered an inquiry into allegations of child abuse in care homes in North Wales between 1974 and 1990 — and that Morrison’s name might feature in connection with the Bryn Estyn home in Wrexham, 12 miles from Chester.”

Mrs Thatcher spent a few days on the Scottish island of Islay, where her aide, Peter Morrison, had his family estate.

After dinner in the huge mansion each night, there were boisterous party games

 photo thatcher britten islay_zpsfjeviyqr.jpg

It’s now remarkable to think of Thatcher being courted on 3 successive holidays in 1977, 1978 and 1979 by Lord Margadale on the Isle of Islay, while his self-confessed ‘pederast’ son Sir Peter Morrison was hovering for a role in government and then to learn that Lord Harvington, (whose child abusing son had been neatly despatched to quieter climes in Workington, Cumbria by George Hume before becoming Archbishop), was also hosting Thatcher on holiday in Jersey.

Lord Harvington – Edward Heath, Margaret Thatcher and her husband were among the guests on his yacht.


Before becoming Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher loved spending time on the beautiful Isle of Islay.

Every August, she would walk on the deserted beaches, drop into the local whisky distillery with husband Denis and play charades after dinner.

Her invitation to go there arrived every  year like clockwork from a young Tory whose well-heeled family owned the 80,000-acre Scottish island. Mrs Thatcher’s gratitude to him was revealed in a thank-you letter she sent from 10 Downing Street shortly after becoming Prime Minister in May, 1979.

She wrote: ‘I must let you know how much Denis and I are looking forward to our holiday this year with you on Islay. My office will be in touch with you about all the details.’

The note, signed fondly ‘Yours ever, Margaret’, was written to the Right Honourable Peter Morrison, a man spawned into a privileged political dynasty steeped in loyal service to  the Conservatives.

Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, pictured with her private secretary Peter Morrison in 1990

His father, John Morrison — made Lord Margadale in recognition of his service to the Conservatives — then presciently announced at a family dinner at his grand house on Islay (three years before it actually happened): ‘Mark my words, Margaret Thatcher will be the next leader of the (Tory) Party.’

In due course, his son, Peter, became MP for Chester and was the first backbencher to urge Mrs Thatcher to stand for the party leadership. The Morrisons were so intimate with Mrs T that women in the family even gave her fashion tips. And over the years, no political colleague was more close to her than Peter.

Immediately after Mrs Thatcher became PM, he was given a job in the Treasury. Then, after a series of  junior ministerial roles, he was elevated to deputy chairman of the ConservThere was talk of an incident at a public lavatory in his constituency, of him trawling central London for rent boys, of having a private house where wild parties were held for under-age males, and secretive visits from  Chester over the border into Wales to see what he called ‘his young friends’.

Questions were increasingly asked in Westminster, in private at first, if it was wise for a man who was bedevilled by such deeply unpleasant rumours to be so close to the Prime Minister.

The Mail’s political columnist Simon Heffer says that, as early as 1988, concerns over Morrison were circulating in the Tory top ranks.

He remembers: ‘A very senior person in the party said that Peter had been discovered by police kerb-crawling for rent boys in Sussex Gardens, London

Norman Tebbit, the former Tory Party chairman and another Thatcher confidant, has admitted he, too, heard the sordid rumours ‘through unusual channels’ just before Morrison became the PM’s closest aide.

Lord Tebbit has told the BBC that ‘rumours had got to my ears’ over Morrison having sex with under-age boys. ‘I faced him up and asked him bluntly whether there was any truth in them. He assured me there was not. There was no action on the part of the police . . . I accepted his word.’

The Tory grandee says that he now believes a VIP ring of paedophiles operated in Westminster over many years and that their activities were covered up by those in powerful places to protect the British establishment.

In July 1990, one-time Health Secretary Edwina Currie wrote in her diary which was published –

‘Peter Morrison has become the Prime Minister’s PPS. Now he’s what they call a “noted pederast” with a liking for young boys. She either knows and is taking a chance, or doesn’t; either way, it’s a really dumb move.’

Morrison had, indeed, been cautioned, the police admitted (it is believed to have been in 1990, the year he took the job as Mrs Thatcher’s PPS), for having sex with a 15-year-old boy in the public lavatories at Crewe railway station.

By not pressing charges, he was given the green light to  carry on.’

Jonathan Aitken, a close friend of Morrison’s at Eton, wrote in his Margaret Thatcher biography last year: ‘The allegations against him (Morrison) were never substantiated, and the inquiry was subsequently dropped.’

Police officers in Chester and Westminster complained that a less powerful man would not have been let off with just a caution but would have been charged with gross indecency.

What’s more, they said that, since the boy victims were under-age Morrison should have been charged with the much more serious offence of sexual crimes against children.

The disgruntled police also said that paperwork about Morrison’s caution had disappeared on the orders of ‘those on high’.

But what of Morrison’s secretive visits to North Wales, a short drive over the border from his constituency?

Gyles Brandreth, his successor as Chester MP, says he and his wife were told ‘repeatedly and emphatically’ that Morrison was a ‘disgusting pervert’.

Rod Richards, a former Conservative MP and leader of the Welsh Tories, says he has seen confidential documents prepared for earlier inquiries which state clearly how Morrison was a ‘frequent and unexplained’ visitor at the homes.

He says: ‘I saw his name and it stayed with me because I knew he was a politician. I think there have been many cover-ups along the way to protect him and others.’

Mr Richards’s memories chime with those of a former resident of the Bryn Estyn care home who told Channel 4 News he had seen Morrison there five times.

The man said: ‘Going through some papers recently, I saw his face. I know now he was the MP for Chester at the time. Morrison. Red wavy hair. I recognised him straight away.

‘I saw him at Bryn Estyn. He turned up in a car, the boy went off in his car. We used to see a lot of people we didn’t recognise, not staff. They couldn’t have been there for the same reason the staff were there. They turned up at odd hours, early evening and the night. Really nice shoes, I always remember the shoes.’

It remains deeply disturbing that Morrison should have been allowed to rise so high and get so close to Margaret Thatcher.

In 1986, when he was moved from his post as a Department of Trade and Industry junior minister to become deputy chairman of the Tory Party, Mrs Thatcher wrote him another effusive letter.

Hinting at their very close relationship, it began: ‘I hasten to say that I am not intending to write to you the normal letter for Ministers leaving the Government.’

Edward Heath’s Former Secretary Shot Himself After Child Abuse Arrest

16 Aug 2015

‘An ex-aide of former Tory Prime Minister, Sir Edward Heath, shot himself in the
head following his arrest for potential child abuse offences.

Two days after being questioned by police investigating images on his computer, 40-year-old Nick Edgar killed himself near his parents’ Cambridgeshire estate.

The Sun reports the father of three, who worked as Sir Edward Heath’s Private
Secretary in the 1990s, was held by police investigating child abuse crimes in April
2010. Having been questioned again four months later, Edgar shot himself with a
shotgun near his parents’ home.

The former Oxford University Union president started working with Sir Edward in
1992 when he was in his early 20s. He worked as his Private Secretary for several
years, spending months at the former Prime Minister’s Wiltshire home.’

Ted Heath: The Cottaging Paedophile

He led the Tories to a surprise General Election victory over Labour, took Britain into Europe and lost power after failing to beat the unions over the three-day week.
But Sir Edward Heath might never have had a stint in 10 Downing Street had he not heeded advice to stop ‘cottaging’ for gay sex.
For he was warned in the 1950s that cruising for homosexual encounters could destroy his political career.
Sir Edward, a lifelong bachelor who died in 2005, always refused to comment on his sexuality.
But Brian Coleman, a senior Tory member of the London Assembly, has claimed the ex-Prime Minister had actively sought gay sex in public places.
He said it was ‘common knowledge’ among Conservatives that Sir Edward had been given a stern warning by police when he underwent background checks for the for the post of Privy Councillor.
In an internet article for the New Stateman magazine, Mr Coleman claimed that gay men had run the Conservative Party in the capital for years, whether as officials, councillors or volunteers.

One of the things we are all starting to learn recently is that ‘gay’ is Tory code for paedophile. …large number of Conservative paedophiles who were not only members of parliament but also of the old GLC and local councils.

John Granville Morrison, 1st Baron Margadale TD, DL (1906 – 1996), was a British landowner and Conservative Party politician. An MP from 1942 to 1965, he notably served as Chairman of the 1922 Committee between 1955 and 1964.

Morrison was the son of Hugh Morrison and Lady Mary Leveson-Gower, daughter of the Liberal statesman Granville Leveson-Gower, 2nd Earl Granville. (There’s a name we recognise).

The eldest of John Morrison’s sons, James , married Sophia Cavendish, daugher of the youngest of the Mitford sisters, Deborah. Deborah Mitford is also known as DEBO.

The Mitford sisters were heavily influenced/influencing of Oswald Mosley, who may have been the influence for the political stance of THE MONDAY CLUB.

Debo was known to Savile and in his auction of personal artefacts was a card provenance as signed by Debo Duchess of Devonshire.

The second son, Sir Charles Andrew Morrison (1932–2005) sat as Conservative MP for Devizes from 1964 until 1992.

He was one of the investors in the shirt shop Cottonrose in Richmond. That property’s freehold is said to be owned by ‘Puddles’ (from the Mary Moss documents). It had been run by ex MP Harvey Proctor,Tory MP for Basildon 1979-1983 and Billericay 1983-1987, who was forced to resign following his activities involving a rent boy/spanking.

Sara Morrison, Charles Morrison’s wife has been described as Edward Heath’s friend and important political confidante and she was with him when he died.

The daughter of Viscount Lang and the Duchess of Marlborough, Sara Morrison was a director of the influential program, Fourth Channel TV, and one of the principal organizers of the Conservative Party, said to be a close confidante of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

She was a director of General Electric Co. of England (now Plessy – ? linked to the Rothschilds).

The third son, Sir Peter Morrison (1944 –1995), was Conservative MP for Chester from 1974 to 1992 and died aged 51 in 1995.

He lived at Puddington in Cheshire, according to the Chester Chronicle, and at the end of his life he was living in Somerset.

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 by a “culture of sniggering, of giggling and of nudge-nudge, wink-wink” 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.

Barry Strevens, who worked as the prime minister’s personal bodyguard, said that he passed on allegations about her confidant Sir Peter Morrison.

“A senior officer in Chester had told me there were rumours going around about under-age boys – one aged 15 – attending sex parties at a house there belonging to Peter Morrison,” he said.

At the time, Sir Peter was being considered as the replacement for deputy party chairman after Jeffrey Archer had stood down over prostitution claims in 1986.

The former senior police officer said that Lady Thatcher appointed Sir Peter deputy party chairman of the Conservatives despite learning of the rumours.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DO THESE PHOTOS UNDERMINE EX PM’S DEFENCE

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

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

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

The issue was first raised by former Cabinet Secretary Lord Armstrong, who worked with Sir Edward in No 10. Lord Armstrong said Sir Edward – whom he described as ‘asexual’ – had a 24-hour police guard and driver from the day he became PM in 1970 to his death in 2005, and did not have his own car.

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

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

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

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

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

17 JUL 2016

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

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

in senior positions teaching abroad with British Council and ran Islington‘s Suffolk children’s scheme.


Peter Righton was questioned about child sex offences in November 1994

A recently discovered press cutting shows that Peter Righton was questioned about indecent assaults on children by the Obscene Publications Squad in November 1994 – several months after the Hereford & Worcester investigation had been shut down, and after the BBC documentary Secret Life of a Paedophile had been broadcast. It can be assumed by the absence of any further news reports that he was never charged with an offence, despite clear evidence from his diaries including names and ages of victims, along with the name of the institution where he abused them. The November 1994 arrest took place in Eye, Suffolk – presumably at Lord Henniker’s estate, where he had been living since his 1992 arrest.

Henniker was needing cash for his stately pile upkeep – quite a business he had going – somehow the cash kept flowing in…………….

No wonder he considered Righton a good tenant?

From what I have been hearing, it is virtually proven that Harding liked to take boys to Amsterdam.

The government gave them £500,000 maybe that’s reason enough plus a lot of them were PIE members.

I think I am probably one of the last surviving members of the old Thursday Club, the gang of cronies that the Duke of Edinburgh used to gather round him in the 1950s to have a bit of fun away from his serious life at Buckingham Palace.

On an average night of the Thursday Club there would be 10 or 15 members present. There would be Lord Louis Mountbatten, Arthur Koestler, Prince Philip, Cecil Beaton, and little Larry Adler playing his mouth organ in the corner, and maybe one or other of the Kray brothers.

link

According to the Mirror:

SECRET files about Prince Philip’s private life are to remain locked behind closed doors for 100 years.

Most confidential Cabinet documents relating to relating to the royals and government are covered by the “30-year rule”.

But at least 27 royal files in the vaults of the Public Records Office at Kew, West London and many of , are considered so delicate they are labelled: “Closed for 100 years“.

More than 10 concern astonishing MI5 and Scotland Yard reports on the Duke Of Edinburgh’s private life.

As an explosive new biography of the Queen hints that the Greek-born Prince was unfaithful to the Queen, we can reveal that Buckingham Palace courtiers and security chiefs were once so concerned about Philip’s non- royal activities that they ordered round-the-clock surveillance.

They feared the Royal Family would be compromised and that there would be a constitutional crisis if news leaked out of how the Prince was behaving.

He was known to be “letting his hair down” with celebrities of the day at weekly meetings of the Thursday Club above exclusive Wheeler’s Restaurant in Soho.

One senior detective, now retired, who was attached to the Prince’s protection team, said: “It’s true we had to report back on where we had been and who had been present.”

But he refused to discuss the Prince’s private visits.It is not known what details of Prince Philip’s private life were made known to the Queen or the Privy Council. But it will not be until the years 2052 to 2060 that they will be released – if then.”

Intriguing FOI request regarding Dolphin Square, hospitals, Islington, Henniker estate, Nick, suspicious deaths etc.

Richard Card 6 January 2017

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

I am referring to the Dolphin Square Inquiry made re child abuse complaints by “Nick”. And whether historical inquiry explored the implications of Sir John’s death 1991 concerning his casework that was cut short.

Without knowing what further correspondence took place between attorney general and police minister and Sir John I can only say that it was inevitable his casework would have led to questions about the six years of disabled child deaths 1966 to 1972 in Islington and Hackney care at The Beeches Ixworth. A village close to the Henniker Estate later home to Peter Righton and allegedly abusive Islington Suffolk project.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Card

Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) 18 January 2017

Dear Mr Card

Freedom of Information Request Reference No:2017010000144

I respond in connection with your request for information which was
received by Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 01/01/2017.

DECISION

I have decided that, in accordance with Section 8 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (the Act), your enquiry is not considered a valid
request.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Would you disclose how far advanced the BBC is in providing the Panorama broadcast, the research and the follow up deliberations to the CSA Inquiry please ?

The programme featured Edwin BAARS a mental patient discharged homeless to Margate. In time he ended up in one of the resort’s many “Section 37” Homes. Former boarding houses registered as care homes (not nursing homes and hence no requirement to employ qualified nurses)

At the time Barbara Castle MP was DHSS minister with special advisor barrister jack STRAW. And a question arises about two dogs that neither barked nor bit. BBC and MIND where Peter RIGHTON was an executive I think.

The most recent Commons question then re Section 37 homes avoiding qualified staff expense was 1972 by Barbara Castle MP about Sue Ryder HQ Cavendish. Sir Keith Joseph refused care inquiry. He also refused inquiry into six years of child deaths of disabled children in social services London care at the Beeches Ixworth Suffolk a village adjoining the now notorious Henniker estate (abusive Islington Suffolk Project)

For public record I should also point out that Sue Ryder’s husbands charity had been subject of Dept of Health commissioned group psychiatric research by Tavistock Institute. Possibly as a consequence the Leonard Cheshire inmates of Le Court Cheshire home had revolted in 1972 after Sir Keith Joseph’s refusals I think of care inquiries at the Sue Ryder HQ of the charity. This led to the creation of disabled persons human rights movement. In fact Dr Laurence Clarke years later wrote a study of Leonard Cheshire versus the Disabled Persons Rights Movement.

By 1975 I would have thought the inmate revolt was sufficiently well known that Barbara Castle would have raised the care inquiries Labour MPs had called for only 3 years earlier. The European Convention of Human Rights provisions re inmates of Leonard Cheshire Homes being subjected to Tavistock Institute research commissioned by govt. The attorney general says the legal advice situation is still secret.

Dame Janet Smith conducting your Savile review at BBC ruled both the Sue Ryder deaths cases 1972 (and a related Regional Crime Squad inquiry into GP death registration malpractice) and the 6 years of questions about death certifuications at Beeches Ixworth as beyond her terms of reference SHIPMAN Inquiry. To examine and make recommendations to improve death registration practices.

Clearly now we can see that at the time, of the two dogs BBC and MIND that neither barked nor bit thus rather letting Mrs Castle off the hook, 1975/76 SAVILE was getting away with abuse at Sue Ryder Child Hospice Leeds.

It was always open to Mrs Castle to order care inquiry re Sue Ryder and the Beeches. But she did not. Even when one of the MPs calling for inquiry was Islington’s Michael O’Halloran. Islington where STRAW was a Labour Cllr with Mrs Hodge and PIE set up its HQ.

I think you should fwd this FOI to Dame Janet Smith as she may care to make a submission to the CSA Inquiry explaining how she was not in fact compromised to conduct Savile Inquiry at BBC.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Card

Paedophile register of controversial group ignored by police – allowing several members to commit abuse

20/3/16

Detectives knew of 300 names in a secret club that advocated sex with children

Police kept the secret membership list of a controversial group which advocated sex with children  “sit in a drawer”, leaving several of those named on it free to commit serious child abuse.

Detectives were given the membership list containing more than 300 names and addresses of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) group in the 1980s, but effectively did nothing with it.One member of the group, which publicly campaigned for adults to be allowed to have sex with children from the age of 10, was convicted 27 years after police were first given the names.

The list has now been passed to the independent Goddard inquiry

Claims of police inaction over child sex abuse allegations comes as Scotland Yard was reportedly planning to announce this week that it will end Operation Midland, its controversial investigations into allegations of VIP child sex abuse and murder.

Labour MP Tom Watson said: “The PIE list shows that there were clear intelligence lines that could have been investigated at the time.

One of those on the list and later convicted was Leo Adamson

Another PIE member later convicted was Charles Napier.

He bragged of easy access to young boys and how he could send obscene images back to Britain in diplomatic bags.

Pedophiles arrested
‘more powerful than the Mafia
by Mark Burdman
On Feb. 2 , in London’ s Old Bailey court, four men were convicted for running a ring of pedophiles-adults who sex­ usually use children-which had recruited at least 150 young boys , some as young as nine, for repeated sodomic abuse.
It is the biggest ring of pedophiles yet uncovered in Britain.
British newspapers Feb. 3 said it had been run as a “Mafia­
like conspiracy. ” One man arrested was too frightened to
testify, declaring that the ring was “more powerful than the
Mafia. “
According to experts on child abuse in Britain, this case is only the beginning. Interviewed on British television Feb. 3 , Dianne Core, head of the Childwatch organization, stated that “people in high places” were involved in pedophiliac activities , and that the whole matter would “explode” during the coming months.
The London Daily Telegraph’s crime  correspondent reported Feb. 3 : “Despite the convictions , po­lice believe there is still a flourishing pedophile network in Britain, with a sophistication said to resemble the Mafia. “

The most prominent figure in the ring, Colin Peters , was trained at Oxford, and was formerly a senior adviser in the British Foreign Office. Following his Foreign Office work, he prosecuted cases for the British Customs and Excise.

Investigators working on the case had interrogated at least one senior member of the House of Lords , one vicar in West London, and officials in Whitehall , “but the police did not have sufficient evidence or manpower to pursue their suspi­cions ,” the Telegraph reported.
Alan Delaney, the official head of the ring, is a cleaning company director. Delaney would procure young boys for pedophiles , by putting job advertisements in the press .
The ring would also procure boys who were members of a junior soccer team.
Many of the youngsters had been at special boarding schools for educationally below-normal children.
Others were runaways , who were caught up by members of the Delaney-Peters ring, who would roam” the streets of Lon­don scouting for boys .
According to the Feb. 3 Telegraph account, the young boys were “passed around its members for sexual degradation and, when the attraction faded, abandoned to a life of pros­titution, drugs , and petty crime . . . . The boys were tempted off the unfamiliar London streets with promises of food, accommodation, money, and a sympathetic ear. Some were plied with drugs, including cocaine, and sexually assaulted while under their influence.”
When he was brought before presiding Judge Pownall for sentencing Feb. 3, Colin Peters was told: “On your own admission, you found boys to satisfy your lust. You were prepared to encourage them to drugs or to lace their drinks­ and you have made matters worse by trying to get witnesses not to attend court. You did that to save your own skin. That was disgraceful. You of all people should have known that. “
‘A permanent conspiracy’ British deputy police superintendent John Lewis , who oversaw the investigations , is calling on Scotland Yard to create a special squad to deal with pedophile rings. Lewis declared Feb. 2 that “these people are as organized and so­phisticated as any other  criminals, and are involved in a permanent conspiracy which is renewed daily as they hunt for new boys. They need to be targeted like bank robbers. It
is important that we should not feel complacent. Positive policing should be continued.”
British police investigators were reportedly angered by the light sentence meted out to Peters , Delaney, and their two  collaborators. The four received, in total, only 34 years of sentences. Peters received only 8 years, for combined charges of conspiracy to commit buggery (sodomy), buggery and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Delaney was jailed for 1 1 years , on conspiracy to commit buggery, indecent assault, taking indecent photographs , indecency with a child, and attempted buggery. One of the four was given only 6 years.
A senior British police officer told the Daily Express Feb.
4: “It should have been more. The damage these people have
done to young lives is very severe.”
In an editorial entitled, “Is This Justice?” the Express Feb. 4 called the sentences “woefully inadequate . . . weighed against the enormity of
their crimes and the emotional and physical damage they did
to their victims , some of whom were only nine years old. “
Moncini and the Satanist track
The London case has refocused attention on another recent case, in Trieste, Italy, involving one Alessandro Mon­cini, a businessman nabbed by law enforcement in the United States and convicted in 1988 for importing child pornography (although he received a paltry one-year sentence and was released “on good behavior” after serving less than three
months in jail).
Investigators in Trieste working on the Mon­cini case have recently been to the United States, attempting to accumulate more information on what they believe to be a “most exclusive ring of international pedophiles.”

Informed sources in Britain believe that the Delaney­ Peters ring and the Moncini-linked networks are connected,

and that both are part of an international pedophile conspir­acy.

U. S. law enforcement officials have in their possession tapes of Moncini attempting to procure a young girl, for Satanic-ritual abuse purposes.

Experts on ritual abuse stress that pedophile rings , as horrifying as they are in and of them­ selves , are actually fronts for, or extensions of, hard-core Satanist cults , for whom the pedophiles provide young boys.

In Britain, however, the Home Office has repeatedly
indicated its opposition to allowing the matter of satanism to
be pursued by police and in the courts.

Should this attitude continue, it will be impossible to crack the command-struc­ture controlling powerful pedophile rings.

Investigative leads

Experts in pedophilia and Satanism report to EIR, that
that the dossiers on previously publicized cases of European­
based pedophile rings have never been fully closed, and may
now be reopened. These involve pedophile rings that were
either cracked or exposed in the 1 986-87 period. Three of
them are worth noting:
On June 1 8, 1987, the head of the Belgian national
office of UNICEF was arrested for involvement in a large­
scale child pornography and pedophilia ring. Ring leader
Jozef Verbeeck had used his influential position in UNICEF
to procure children, often from broken homes, some as young
as eight months old, for some 400 wealthy clients across
Europe. The basement of UNICEF in Brussels was used to
store pornographic pictures of children.
• In spring-summer 1987, Dutch authorities uncovered
one of the worst cases of collective child sex abuse in record­
ed history. In a small town called Oode Pekala, during the
Easter holidays , a gang of pedophiles , dressed as clowns,
lured more than 70 children into taking part in pornographic
movies.
On Aug. 3, 1986, the Sunday Times of London “In­sight Team” exposed the activities of a secretive organization called the Spartacus Club, based near Amsterdam in Holland, which sent pedophile literature to 25 ,000 subscribers in Great Britain, and which specialized in procuring boys from the Philippines for pedophile activity. Headed by one John Stam­ford, the club was part of Spartacus International, which published homosexual literature and the Paedo Alert News, “a magazine about boy love. “


James Fraser Darling member of the Spartacus Club 33 years FOR THE SCOT WHO PREYED ON THAI KIDS – serves only 2

Sentenced to 33 years for paedophile offences in Thailand. Released on appeal and deported. Served a grand total of 2 years inside.

James Fraser Darling – who preyed on boys as young as eight – gives one-to-one lessons to the children of wealthy families.

Darling, 56, who lived in Morningside, Edinburgh, before going to the Far East, is working in a private language school in Zhuhai in south China.

We discovered the pervert – the son of an Oxford don – posing as a respectable teacher in the same week as pop paedophile Gary Glitter jetted back into Britain.

But while Glitter, 64, was placed on the UK sex offenders’ register, Darling is subject to no monitoring or restrictions.

At his school in Zhuhai, Darling, who is paid pounds 450 a month, refused to speak to the Sunday Mail.

School principal Li Lulin said she knew nothing about Darling’s crimes – but would not sack him.

She said: “Give him a break. His performance here has been good. I won’t tell parents.

“It’s not up to the Chinese government to punish him for his past. His contract finishes in September. I’ll let him go peacefully.”

A Foreign Office spokswoman said: “It is a matter for the Chinese authorities if they admit him to the country. We wouldn’t necessarily know if Mr Darling was there.”

At the Chinese Embassy in London, a spokeswoman refused to say whether any action would be taken to remove Darling.

 CHILD SEX SHAME OF SCOTS TOFF: He molested Thai lads, court told

Fraser-Darling and other Westerners allegedly molested the boys at the picnics and in Fraser- Darling’s cottage near the poor village of Rawai.

The boys showed investigators photos of themselves naked with the man they knew as “Uncle James”.

Image result for James Fraser Darling

More nude pictures were found at Fraser-Darling’s home, along with a Spartacus magazine article on “boy love” written by a J.Darling. Fraser-Darling denies being the author.

Fraser-Darling, who went to posh Repton school, was arrested in November 1995 after a colleague at the university reported him.

He was about to leave Thai-land for Cambodia when police swooped.

The pervert was taken from prison to court in his brown jail uniform early yesterday. His ankles were chained.

Fraser-Darling admitted he was a paedophile.

But he denied the charges, claiming he was a scapegoat in Thailand’s “witch- hunt” against child sex perverts.

Fraser-Darling’s father is Scots academic Sir Frank Fraser-Darling, an expert on Scottish birds and Hebridean wildlife.

He also has a brother in the Diplomatic Corps.

Someone was pulling strings to get him out of Thailand.

A PAEDOPHILE has arrived in Scotland to claim a family inheritance – still lying about his sleazy past.

Toff James Fraser Darling, 51, is in the Highlands to get what is left of his family’s cash after being freed from a Bangkok jail.

But while the former teacher claims he won an appeal against all convictions, the truth is that the Thais kicked him out after only reducing his jail sentence.

Fraser Darling was left a small fortune while languishing behind bars and used some of the money to win his freedom.

Now the pervert, who preyed on young boys in the seedy resort of Phuket, is staying at an pounds 18-a-night guest house in Forres near his former family home while he plans his future.

Local residents are unaware that he is a convicted paedophile.

 LIES OF DEPRAVED TOFF

Fraser Darling’s father, Sir Frank, died in 1979 at the age of 73 after his retirement as chief officer of the Imperial Bureau of Animal Genetics in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh-born Christina was his third wife and met him when she was taking care of his children after his second wife’s death.

Since Fraser Darling’s arrest he has been too ashamed to contact his brother Richard, 52, a senior Foreign Office intelligence officer, and his sister Francesca, 46, who lives in the USA.

He says he has spent his time in Scotland trying to register for work after a lifetime working abroad in Thailand, Iran, Sri Lanka and El Salvador.

Frank Fraser Darling lived on the island of Tanera Mor.

Tanera Mor is  notable as the location for Frank Fraser Darling’s book Island Years.

Accused Scot was ‘like an uncle’ to Thai boys

THE paedophile son of a Scottish knight was jailed for 33 years in Thailand yesterday for preying on young boys.

Teacher James Fraser Darling, 47, whose father, a leading academic – was an authority on Scottish wildlife, was chained by the ankles as he was led away to the cells wearing regulation brown prison shirt and shorts.

The appalling sex acts he was convicted of were carried out on boys from a sea gypsy community at a Thai beach resort.

He was sentenced to five years each on nine counts of separating children from their parents.

Darling is the son of Sir Frank Fraser Darling, an Oxford don and expert on Scottish bird-life and Hebridean wildlife, who became chief officer of the Imperial Bureau of Animal Genetics in Edinburgh. He died in 1979.

Darling’s mother, Lady Christina Darling of Forres, Moray, died while he was on trial.

His brother Richard, a senior intelligence officer specialising in the war against drugs, works for the Foreign Office in Britain and did not attend the court.

Richard Ogilby Leslie Fraser Darling Counsellor, Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Pervert Darling, a London University arts graduate, travelled the world teaching in Brazil and Sri Lanka before arriving in Thailand four years ago.

A book published by the Spartacus organisation – a European group linked to paedophilia – was found in his house, and a chapter inside, written by J Darling, described Roman orgies with young boys.

However, Darling denied that he was the author of the work.

The court’s decision was welcomed by FACE, the coalition against Child Exploitation, which has been monitoring suspected paedophiles in Thailand.

Almost everybody on Phuket knew James Fraser Darling.
 How disgusting can you get 2 years then deported back too our country!! Bloody loose around innocent children! Thank you for sharing this



CHARLES’S SEX FILES

Prince Charles has been given access to secret files on the sex lives of the world’s most powerful men and wome – to make sure he is fully informed when he finally becomes king.

The Sun 10-14-12, p9

Prince Charles has been given access to secret files on the sex lives of the world’s most powerful men and women, to make sure he is fully informed when he finally becomes king.

The Crown Jewels of classified intelligence, normally seen only by the queen and senior ministers, are understood to contain details of Princess Diana’s death and the IRA assassination of Lord Mountbatten. he will also see files on UK security threats.

a senior whitehall source said “ he can see everything but not the files on him and Camilla as he is not allowed to see the dossier where he is the subject”

ww:

The inference must be that maj has this information – or how could she be the reigning mollusc?

Which means she would have had all the info from Dickens Dossiers- the dossiers to Maggie Thatcher – Blunt – Prime – Hayman- – all the MP’s so far named – and those as yet unnamed-

and – of course

“I’ve got eight names of big people, really important names, public figures. And I am going to expose them in Parliament.” (read more)

Although he had previously named senior diplomat Sir Peter Hayman as a paedophile, he never made good on his promise to expose the eight public figures. Just over two months after making the threat, Geoffrey Dickens’s name and address was found in a ‘hit list’ in a notebook belonging to Arthur Hutchinson, who was wanted for three brutal murders and was already on ‘a serious sex charge’.

During his trial, on 11 September 1984, Hutchinson accused Mike Barron, then a reporter with the Sunday Mirror, of committing the murders.

He even pointed to him in court, saying “That’s your killer there”. He explained his prints had been on the champagne bottle because he had picked it up to use as a weapon to defend himself against Mr Barron. Hutchinson claimed that the media had had a vendetta against him, and that:

“Every week for the last 10 months, that man there has been going to my mother’s house threatening her. I was frightened for her and wanted to get the truth out. There’s your killer.”- Arthur Hutchinson
