Twice jailed Tom O’Carroll was invited to a luxurious champagne bash at the House of Lords

He was chairman of the Paedophile Information Exchange, which fought in the 1970s and ’80s to legalise sex with kids.

Speaking at his one-bedroom flat in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, he bragged: “I was kind of a guest of honour. A few years ago I did give a pretty substantial amount. I was invited by one of the members of the Lords, who is patron or chairman.”

Book Aid International, which provides books for children in sub-Saharan Africa, said it was unaware of O’Carroll’s past and has launched an investigation.

The charity said he had given less than £500 in three instalments since 2015, which has been refunded.

A spokesman for the House of Lords said: “Parliament takes its safeguarding responsibilities towards children, young people and vulnerable adults very seriously.

Our safeguarding policy has been developed to ensure we provide a safe environment and fulfil our safeguarding responsibilities.

“The event sponsored by Lord Boateng, on behalf of Book Aid International, met the rules regarding the use of banqueting facilities in the House of Lords.

“Those who were invited to attend the event went through airport-style security on entry to the estate and were not left unsupervised.

“As Book Aid International has made clear, no children were present at the event.

Former Wirral children’s care home boss Michael John Carroll “cleared” of historic sex abuse charges

Jan 18 2018

A FORMER children’s home boss has been cleared of historic sex abuse on a young boy at a Wirral orphanage.

Paedophile Michael John Carroll – who has been jailed for similar offences at the same care home – had been due to stand trial in April in Liverpool.

But the prosecution has now decided not to pursue the allegations against him and a judge at the city’s crown court has formally entered not guilty verdicts on the three charges he faced.

69-year-old Carroll – known as John – had denied two offences of indecent assault and one of gross indecency involving the child between April 1975 and 1977 when the boy was aged between six and eight.

Lee Bonner, prosecuting, told the court that the Crown intended to offer no evidence explaining: “It is not deemed to pass the evidential test of providing a realistic prospect of conviction”.

Carroll, who lives in Weston Rhyn, Oswestry, Shropshire, was not present for the brief hearing as he is away on holiday.

It had been alleged that the offences occurred at St Edmund’s Orphanage in Bebington where he himself had been in care before taking up a job at the institution in the mid-1960s.

Twelve years later he took up a post as deputy officer in charge of a children’s home in Lambeth before taking overall charge in 1980. He was eventually dismissed following financial irregularities.

He was jailed for ten years at Liverpool Crown Court in 1999 after admitting 35 offences against 12 boys – nine of them at the Wirral home and the others in Lambeth between 1964 and 1982.

A further 41 charges, involving those 12 victims and two further complainants – a boy and a girl – were laid on the file. The charges resulted from a long-running investigation – Operation Care – by Merseyside Police into child abuse in residential homes in the North West.

Abuse probe into former Lambeth children’s home manager

20 September 2017

A former children’s home manager has been arrested on allegations of child sex abuse.

Michael John Carroll managed the Angell Road children’s home in Lambeth, south London, between 1981 and 1990.

The 69-year-old is accused of sexually assaulting two children in the early 1980s.

Mr Carroll, who is originally from Liverpool but was arrested in Shropshire, has been released on bail until October.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-41324770

Michael John Carroll. He was one of the paedophile “fall guys” from the Lambeth Care Home Scandal – this is a quaint British tradition where small time paedophiles get convicted of minor sex offences and all enquiries are then closed in to the bigger picture.

Lord Boateng is expected to be asked about claims that the police wanted to speak to him in 1998 about alleged links with a paedophile ­children’s home boss Michael John Carroll

 

Inquiry counsel Ben Emmerson says former Labour minister Lord Paul Boateng named in media as an associate of Lambeth paedophile John Carroll

But Emmerson says nothing inquiry has seen yet suggests impropriety on his part


Mar 22 2017:

Has got round to interviewing Paul Boateng yet?

In his book, Clive Driscoll talks of 3 suspects in the Bulic Forsythe murder.

Who was the councillor?



And why was Clive Driscoll pulled off the Lambeth case when he ID’d Boateng & wanted to question him?

Sir Paul Boateng

“John Carroll would regularly talk about him [Paul Boateng] being able to open doors for him.”


Lord Paul Boateng is set to be questioned by the national child sex abuse probe chaired by Goddard.

The Labour politician is expected to be asked about retired Det Insp Clive Driscoll’s claims he wanted to speak to him in 1998 about alleged links with paedophile ­children’s home boss John Carroll.

Mr Driscoll said he was taken off the case before he could approach Mr Boateng.


justme ‏@zante03

so I take it the cops have been investigating this for at LEAST 2 years, so why no movement?

 Yes, the Mirror article sounded as if it had just occurred to Driscoll but he has been on about it for years.

One man – Michael John Carroll – will be central to the investigation.

Goddard says she will examine “the involvement of Michael Carroll in the sexual abuse of children in the care of the council; his recruitment and continued employment by the council; and the circumstances surrounding his application to foster a child and the council’s subsequent account to the Clough Inquiry”.

 

Former Angell Road care home

The former Angell Road care home where Carroll was manager

A former social services manager told Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll in 1998 that she saw the future Blair minister making evening visits to the Angell Road children’s home in Brixton in the early 80s.

One witness told him she saw Mr Boateng at Carroll’s Angell Road home in Lambeth, South London, during the 1980s.

Another claimed Mr Boateng visited a camp for children in care, run by Carroll.

A third person, who worked in social services, claimed Mr Boateng contacted him after Carroll’s bid to foster two boys was turned down.

Carroll was jailed for 10 years in 1999 for abusing children during the 80s and 90s.

Mr Boateng has insisted he did not recall meeting him or visiting Angell Road.

Inquiry chief Justice Lowell Goddard has said she would look at the Carroll fostering case along with allegations of “inappropriate interference in law enforcement” in Lambeth.

Blair government was briefed about police paedophile probe

The papers have been handed to anti-corruption detectives investigating the alleged cover up which is believed to be among 17 cases that were referred to the police watchdog in April.

The 111 pages of documents makes no mention of the minister being under suspicion while former members of the Blair government and the inspector who helped write some of the documents deny ever being told.

Nigel Goldie, a former council boss involved in the 1998 children’s home probe in Lambeth, south London, said after we handed him the papers: “I had a discussion with the government inspector about how we were going to handle this because of the huge political implications of a serving minister being investigated on suspicion of child sex offences.

“Understandably they said they would pass it up the management line.

“But the documents make no mention of this.

This document shows ministers were briefed about the probe. SoS was the Secretary of State Frank Dobson while the Ps (c) was the Private secretary (communities) who was Paul Boateng

“Anything that was said would appear to have been ‘off record’. The people involved have to come out and be open and answer questions about what occurred.”

Mr Driscoll was removed from the Lambeth investigation, codenamed Operation Trawler, in November 1998.

Mr Driscoll said after we handed him the documents: “I was surprised to see no mention of the briefing I gave at the request of the SSI to Mr Nigel Goldie and the SSI inspector.

“I outlined the allegations and concerns made by witnesses about the suspects.”

The inspector who helped write some of the reports, their former bosses at the watchdog the Social Services Inspectorate (SSI) and former health ministers Paul Boateng John Hutton and Frank Dobson have either denied being told or said they have no recollection of a minister being a suspect.

The papers were released by the Department of Health and Care Quality Commission following Freedom of Information requests by the Mirror.

The anti-corruption investigation is focusing on a crucial meeting that occurred in the offices of Lambeth social services on the sixth floor of Mary Seacole House in Clapham on August 28, 1998.

Mr Driscoll and Mr Goldie say it was the first time the SSI inspector was told about the Labour star being in the frame.

A memo written later that day based on information provided by the inspector is marked with a handwritten note stating Mr Boateng and their then boss, the Secretary of State for Health, Frank Dobson, had been briefed.

Mr Driscoll began investigating when Lambeth children’s home boss Michael John Carroll, now aged 66, was arrested in June 1998 over child sex offences.

The detective soon traced two people who said the Blair minister and Carroll, known as John, had been friends.

Paul Boateng says he was not aware that any minister was under suspicion at the time

Mr Boateng was moved in late October 1998 to the Home Office

A six page memo dated September 7, 1998, for Mr Boateng entitled “PAEDOPHILE INVESTIGATION – LAMBETH” stated that government inspectors would maintain “close contact” with detectives.

The document shows how closely the Blair administration was monitoring the police investigation, raising questions about what exactly was known.

The papers, released following Freedom of Information requests by the Mirror, also show that information was being passed to ministers verbally.

…Six months later the SSI informed Mr Dobson that Mr Boateng had been told before he left the department that he would be excluded from updates about the Lambeth investigation.


Paul Boateng’s wife – nee Janet Alleyn, a social worker by training who became a social-services administrator, in 1980.

A confidential memo, written by SSI Chief Inspector Denise Platt, stated Mr Boateng was at the centre of a “perceived conflict of interest” because his wife Janet had been the chair of Lambeth social services during a period in the 1980s.

Mr Boateng said: “I was not aware that any serving Minister had at anytime come under suspicion in relation to child sex abuse at children’s homes in Lambeth.”

He added: “I had no knowledge of allegations relating to child sexual abuse in children’s homes in Lambeth other than in media reports of the period.

“The issue was raised with me at some time during our respective periods of office in the Department of Health by the then head of the SSI Denise Platt.

“This was in the context of the investigation into the activities of Mr Carroll and the circumstances of his employment by Lambeth Social Services.

Ms Platt, who was made a Dame in 2004 and is currently a trustee of the NSPCC,has denied being told a minister was being investigated or being “involved in providing any briefings” to ministers about the Lambeth investigations in 1998.

from 2014

The police team was set up following a series of articles in the Daily Mirror revealing how retired detective Clive Driscoll was removed from investigating a paedophile ring in November 1998 in Lambeth, south London, after naming politicians among the suspects.

The inquiry has been operating in secret at the headquarters of Scotland Yard’s child abuse command at Empress State Building in Earl’s Court, London.

The team have been told by the former youth worker that he took photographs of holidays between 1986 and 1994 after starting his first job as a youth worker with the Association of Combined Youth Clubs, partly run by convicted paedophile Michael John Carroll.

The former youth worker said two senior detectives spent a day quizzing him at Walworth Road police station in south east London after Carroll was arrested in June 1998.

Carroll was said to be on a committee that hand picked around 60 deprived boys and girls, aged five to 14, to go to the Havens caravan park in Christchurch, near Bournemouth, for two weeks every summer.

Many came from Catholic children’s homes and had already suffered sexual abuse.

A group of men, including the rising Labour star, would allegedly travel down on the Friday evening and sleep in the caravans with the children over the weekends.

The new witness said he cut his ties with the ACYC in the mid 1990s when he learned some colleagues were convicted paedophiles. It changed it’s name shortly afterwards before shutting down.

He claimed: “It became quite clear that the organisation had been infiltrated by a group of paedophiles.

Five Lambeth-run children's homes where sex abuse took place

Goddard recently said her inquiry would examine events at five children’s homes in Lambeth – Angell Road, Monkton Street, Ivy House, South Vale, and Shirley Oaks.

These five care homes were places where children were exposed to sexual abuse and cruelty – Monkton Street and Ivy House were homes for children with special needs.

This was a paedophile ring protected by the police and people connected to Lambeth council who were taking away very vulnerable children every year for a decade. It was like a conveyor belt feeding children to abusers.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/police-investigating-claims-minister-tony-4342268

All of Lambeth’s homes had been closed by the mid-1990s but by then, they had been infiltrated by paedophiles for at least 30 years – and survivors are still coming forward.

Documents obtained by Newsnight show investigators believed there were at least seven men who were abusing children at Angell Road alone. This was regarded as an “inner circle”. The suspicion was that many more were involved.

Hundreds of sensitive council documents found in London estate

Hundreds of sensitive documents have been found in an unlocked London estate storage unit, the BBC has learned.

Child protection and rent arrears documents – showing names, addresses, and confidential information – were found on the Gauden Estate, Clapham.

Campaigners say the find could include files missing from a historical sexual abuse investigation, which they believe was “covered up”.

Lambeth Council has moved the files to a “secure location” for review.

The Shirley Oaks Survivors Association say the discovery could include 140 boxes of council documents that have gone missing, related to abuse suffered at the Shirley Oaks Childrens’ Home.

“It’s imperative that the history of these documents is actually found out,” said former Metropolitan Police officer Clive Driscoll.

Three people were convicted of child abuse which took place at Shirley Oaks’ in the 1970s and 80s.

Ex-residents claim Lambeth Council has “covered up” the “industrial scale” abuse which took place at the children’s home.

Lambeth Council is set to pay tens of millions of pounds to former Shirley Oaks residents.

Correctly identifying the documents could be “could be the difference between a successful and failed prosecution”, Mr Driscoll added.

A spokesperson for Lambeth Council said the store room had been “re-secured, and the documents it contained removed”.

The documents will now be reviewed to determine whether a data breach has taken place.

“From an initial assessment no identifiable personal data relating to any Lambeth children’s homes, prior to their closure in the 80s and 90s, have been found,” the spokesman added.

SHIRLEY OAKES STATEMENT

SOSA PRESS STATEMENT 17.02.17

It is clear the Shirley Oaks Interim report has ruffled feathers as it was intended to do. In our efforts to be open, on request we have made the report available to; the press, the Police, Home Office and IICSA. There are no children’s names in the report apart from those who wanted their deceased siblings mentioned. There are many people who have a lot to lose from our exposure and it would seem that they are now making a concerted effort to undermine us.

 In the past the methods used have been to under investigate the allegations, to deny there was a paedophile ring operating in Shirley Oaks and other Lambeth Homes, to pervert the course of justice protecting their own and negating their duty to the public. Lastly, they have relied on the fact that documents and evidence has gone missing as a hindrance to their investigations.

 Central to the failings in Lambeth was Operation Middleton which the Met Police announced at the time was a gold standard investigation. Our interim report contradicts this and therefore we would not be surprised if this became the subject of the attempts to discredit us. 

We ask the question: Is this to protect the paedophiles or is it to protect the integrity of the agencies that failed in the past? Dismissing our claims of a cover up by insisting it was just a few individuals who didn’t follow the obvious leads didn’t wash then and is not going to wash now. 

To date we have over 1000 members and we will not be intimidated because Shirley Oaks and Lambeth former care children have suffered enough bullshit in their lives to allow the same types of like-minded conspirers to derail our efforts. 

 What they never realised when they defrauded us of our childhood was the encaged environment which we were forced to live created a unity and bond that has come back to haunt them. Now we wont be silenced.

Shirley Oaks children’s home scandal South London press 21/07/17: Abuse victims slam council payout scheme



 

Former Shirley Oaks site

LAMBETH CHILD ABUSE; HANGED BOY; TOP PEOPLE

Peter Davis, 15, was found hanged at Lambeth Council‘s Shirley Oaks children’s home in Croydon in South London.
Peter was probably murdered.
A coroner ruled it was “death by misadventure”.
The police say that the case is closed.

Why were the files from Shirley Oaks Home sealed for ONE HUNDRED YEARS REGARDING 15 yr old lad PETER DAVIS found hanged?

“Right now, having looked through the history of Shirley Oaks and how many paedophiles were operating there, it’s quite clear that something untoward took place which has been covered up for years.”

When the BBC looked for court documents from the time, we found that in 2003 they had been made secret for 100 years.

Former senior detective Clive Driscoll said reopening the case would be a “great opportunity for detective work”.


Carroll would always say he was untouchable. He was a kingpin in Lambeth.”


Lambeth Borough Council

Allegedly, a ‘Godfather’ controlled Lambeth council, child abuse victims had petrol poured over them, and the Lambeth Police HQ had a basement where children may have been abused.In the case of Lambeth, a large number of people died in mysterious circumstances before any perpetrators could be brought to justice.

Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll was removed from the original police investigation after superiors learned that politicians, including an MP, were among the suspects.

One female staff member was subject to a rape on council premises “of horrendous proportions”, such that she was still suffering from serious injuries one month on.

She described being raped alongside children and animals by senior figures in the council.

Although the report, which was prompted by alleged breaches of the council’s equal opportunities policy, recommends a criminal investigation, its findings were never formally investigated by the police at the time.

Instead, the perpetrators within the council were dismissed from their positions. The report has never before been made public.

Bulic Forsythe who worked at Lambeth Council and was murdered allegedly before blowing the whistle on abuse there

The Daily Mirror asks:was Bulic Forsythe, who vowed to expose a paedophile ring allegedly linked to a future minister in Tony Blair’s government killed to protect a paedophile ring?’

That abuse involved senior figures in Lambeth who were using council premises for the rape of women and children, according to the report’s remarkable findings.

They used the basement of Lambeth’s housing headquarters, the report says, because “sexual assault could be performed without fear of interruption by other staff”.

The Metropolitan Police, which has been investigating events in Lambeth at the time under Operation Trinity, said it was considering the report as part of its investigation.

JANET BOATENG, LAMBETH COUNCIL SOCIAL SERVICES CHAIR/WIFE OF PAUL BOATENG

 

 

Janet Boateng’s name never comes up in articles about the paedophile ring that operated in Lambeth Council-run children’s homes between 1974 and 1994.

But maybe it should, because she was chair of Lambeth Council’s social services committee, who had overall responsibility for the running of children’s homes, and she personally unveiled the ‘new child care strategy’ at a time when Lambeth children’s homes were infested with paedophiles.

Wife of Paul Boateng investigated for allegedly bullying black staff

The wife of Paul Boateng, Britain’s first black High Commissioner, is under investigation for allegedly bullying domestic staff at the official residence in South Africa.

The complaints against Janet Boateng by black members of staff are deemed so sensitive that Foreign Office ministers have been alerted.

More on their time in South Africa

When Paul Boateng was given the prized diplomatic posting of South Africa in 2003, a country whose blacks had suffered for decades, being the new High Commissioner’s wife seemed to be a heaven-sent role for his wife Janet.

This is a post of high significance, that comes close to the top echelons of Washington, Paris and Beijing. The significance test is in the quality of the china. Only top missions are issued with a Royal Doulton black-and-gold Minton dinner service, and that’s precisely what Janet Boateng has for her formal dinner parties.

Their neighbours include Archbishop Tutu and Nelson Mandela.

The appointment of Mr Boateng, who had been chief secretary to the Treasury under Chancellor Gordon Brown, caused outrage in diplomatic circles, and still does.

A controversial choice

Critics feel that such an important posting to an area of geopolitical significance should have gone to a career diplomat, not to a lawyer-turned Labour politician as a lucrative and dignified exit from Parliament by friend and crony Tony Blair.

His officials hate him because he’s so rude,” says a government insider. “He’s very clever, but he’s very arrogant and he has a very short fuse. He’s horrible to work for. Nobody loves Paul.”

After the murder of eight-year-old Sarah Payne, the paper had argued that every parent should have the right to know if a paedophile was living nearby.

The Paynes said the proposed ‘Sarah’s Law’ would “give back power to parents to enable them to protect their children”.

They added: “This debate was long overdue and we look forward to hearing the home secretary’s response to this decision.”

So the News of the World and the parents of Sarah Payne say they’re confident that their campaign for a change in the law on paedophiles will be successful, especially since the police and probation service now appear to have signed up to a form of Sarah’s law

What about Sarah’s law? What about the suggestion of access, that the public should have access and be told if paedophiles are in the vicinity or are likely to be working with children. We just want the whole thing set out

how are you listening if you are saying that you are actually not going to give the kind of access that people have signed up for this

PAUL BOATENG
Well what the NSPCC and the police and the probation service have asked us to do, when they sat alongside the News of the World on Friday, is to review how we can better control access to information

Boateng’s Business

Aegis Defence Services

The chairman of the Aegis board of directors is former Defence minister, Nicholas Soames MP. The Board of Directors include: General Sir Roger Wheeler, Chief of the General Staff; Paul Boateng, former Labour Minister and ex-High Commissioner to South Africa[ and Sir John Birch, former British deputy ambassador to the United Nations.

In October 2004, Aegis won a $293 million three-year contract in Iraq outsourcing, among other things, intelligence for the U.S. Army.

Spicer is effectively in charge of the second largest military force in Iraq – some 20,000 private soldiers. Just don’t call him a mercenary.

Aegis

Soames is demanding Tom Watson apologise over Leon Brittan

Dame Alun Roberts ‏@ciabaudo

Am I in the least surprised that Boateng has close business ties to Nicholas Soames, Proctor’s friend and protector? 

Boateng’s directorship at AEGIS makes him an associate of right-wing yob Nicholas Soames, friend of Harvey Proctor.

A former Cabinet minister (Paul Boateng) has become a director of a private military company after lobbying South Africa to water down anti-mercenary laws.

Paul Boateng joined the board of Aegis Defence Services – completing his transformation from ‘Loony left’ councillor to a member of the Establishment.

But his new role has sparked a fresh row about the so-called ‘revolving door’ of former ministers who take up lucrative private-sector posts after leaving office.

Aegis, which has lucrative contracts in Iraq, is run by Tim Spicer, the former Guards officer at the centre of the arms-to-Sierra Leone scandal in 1998.

As high commissioner, Mr Boateng lobbied the South African government on behalf of the Foreign Office over armed forces legislation.

Britain was concerned about laws which would prevent South Africans from joining foreign military forces.

Mr Boateng called for an amendment to ensure that South Africans who joined the British army were not forced to renounce their citizenship.

But the ANC-led government claiming it would have created loopholes allowing South Africans to join foreign armies as well as become mercenaries with companies such as Aegis.

The anti-‘fighters-for-hire’ legislation was drawn up in a bid to end the country’s reputation as a recruiting ground for ‘dogs of war’ fighting in dirty conflicts.

It is not known how much Boateng is being paid by Aegis.

Has Virginia Bottomley commented on the conviction of Righton’s mate Napier? No, thought not!

Charles Napier, the half-brother of a John Whittingdale, sentenced to 13 years over ‘prolific’ child sex abuse,  has been urged to come clean about his links to a network of high-profile paedophiles after he was jailed for hundreds of sexual assaults on young boys dating back more than 40 years.

Charles Napier, 67, was a former treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) which campaigned to lower the age of consent and linked like-minded abusers in the 1970s and 80s before it was disbanded. It was reputed to have high-ranking supporters within politics, police and the Church.

Napier was arrested last year following a police investigation sparked by claims by MP Tom Watson about an Establishment ring of child abusers that had links to Downing Street.

Charities

Kids Company

The leaked email shows how Yentob, currently the BBC’s £330,000-a-year creative director, mounted a concerted operation to lobby the Labour Government to cancel the bill. The bill was waived the following year. The message, sent using a BBC email address to nine Kids Company colleagues – including Ms Batmanghelidjh – revealed he had contacted Dawn Primarolo, then the Paymaster General in the Treasury, and Paul Boateng, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, about the tax bill.
 photo boat and kid co_zpsvkjejth8.jpg
Mr Yentob said he had been advised by Ms Primarolo’s aides to put the charity’s case to her in a letter, so she could refer the matter to the Inland Revenue – which Mr Yentob said he would be doing ‘with a little bit of help from my friends’.
Both Ms Primarolo and Mr Boateng worked at the time for the then-Chancellor Gordon Brown.
 Mr Yentob also says in the message: ‘Paul Boateng and I have managed to miss each other on the telephone but his office has been extremely co-operative and concerned and a phone call is being set up for tomorrow morning.’

A few months later, £589,957 was written off using taxpayers’ money, with an additional £100,000 debt met by an unidentified donor.

The charity’s unpaid bill was first revealed by The Mail on Sunday last week, which led to this newspaper obtaining the Yentob email.

The charity has received about £4 million from the Government every year for the last decade.

Ms Batmanghelidjh claims the Government has targeted her because she has a list of Establishment figures allegedly involved in historical child sex abuse.

Mr Boateng said last night: ‘I do not recall the details. I would not be prepared to comment without consulting Treasury papers. I was responsible for spending, not tax.’

Kids Company founder and trustees may face action amid Insolvency Service probe

April 24 2017

Kids Company was founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh

The founder and former trustees of the collapsed charity Kids Company could be banned from holding company directorships.

 

The youth organisation folded amid a storm of controversy in August 2015 – just days after receiving a £3 million Government grant in a final bid to keep it afloat.

Kids Company received more than £42 million of Whitehall funding between 1996 and 2015, thanks in part to founder Camila Batmanghelidjh winning favour with former prime minister David Cameron.

The Insolvency Service is investigating the financial circumstances of the charity and is allegedly bringing disqualification proceedings against Ms Batmanghelidjh.

Former trustees of the collapsed charity, including ex-BBC creative director Alan Yentob and Richard Handover, previously a boss of WH Smith, may also face sanctions.

The trustees, who also include Sunetra Atkinson, Erica Bolton, Francesca Robinson, Jane Tyler and Andrew Webster, responded to the “unconfirmed reports” in a joint statement.

A catastrophic charity collapse. Two inquires that hit the buffers. As a musical lampoons the fiasco… Will Kids Company Camila and her BBC stooge EVER face the music?

  • Stage production depicts the hugely publisised fall of Kids Company charity
  • Comes two years after the controversial charity met its demise amid allegations
  • Inquiries are ongoing but there is not indication of when they might conclude
  • Camila Batmanghelidjh’s autobiography, due out this year, is similarly delayed

Alan Yentob, BBC creative director, throws up his arms in despair. His rich baritone trembles with bathos as he sings: ‘Michael Gove even said it was an inspirational charity!’

The audience titters. The line does not have the lyricism of a Rodgers and Hammerstein, but it is genuinely funny.

And true. The real Mr Yentob — rather than the actor playing him in this stage production — really did say, rather than sing, it.

Just like the BBC bigwig himself, who became embroiled in the scandal surrounding the collapse of the Kids Company charity of which he was chairman, there is something more than a little unconventional about this new musical being previewed in London last week.

First, there is the title: ‘The Public Administration And Constitutional Affairs Select Committee Takes Oral Evidence On Whitehall’s Relationship With Kids Company.’

Then there are the lyrics, taken verbatim from the Hansard transcript of the testimony given by two witnesses who appeared before that committee of MPs on October 15, 2015.

One was Mr Yentob. The other was enigmatic charity supremo Camila Batmanghelidjh, once known as ‘the angel of Camberwell’.

The pair had been summoned to the Commons to explain how Kids Company, the charity of which Ms Batmanghelidjh was founder and CEO, had gone bust amid allegations of financial irregularity and sexual abuse, having received almost £50 million of public money.

That was almost two years ago. And while the musical is opening this week, the public still awaits a definitive official explanation of the charity’s controversial modus operandi and dramatic demise.

The select committee had no powers to act on its own damning findings of an ‘extraordinary catalogue of failures’. Two statutory bodies that do have such powers — the Charity Commission and the Insolvency Service — were supposed to deliver their own reports on Kids Company last autumn. They did not.

Both bodies say inquiries are ‘ongoing’ but there is no indication as to when they might end. Ms Batmanghelidjh’s autobiography, due out late last year, is similarly delayed.

And so the extraordinary saga rumbles on.

The woman at the centre of it all, 54-year-old Camila, keeps, in contrast to her life before the scandal, a low profile these days.

On a rare outing last summer, she was photographed as she went to lunch with representatives of a foreign government ‘which is having to deal with a lot of young refugees’ at the Michelin-starred Pied a Terre restaurant.

Ms Batmanghelidjh says she is continuing to help many Kids Company children, with the financial backing of donors who stayed loyal.

Kids Company rented a £4,000-a-month Grade II-listed art-deco mansion in North London, in which a member of the finance department and one of Ms Batmanghelidjh’s PAs lived

While the Metropolitan Police found insufficient evidence to press any criminal charge, anecdotal evidence of institutional anarchy and excesses at Kids Company still has the power to shock.

Brown envelopes stuffed with cash were handed to troubled children as a matter of course. Twelve-year-old clients were given £150 trainers; others were flown first class to America. Some £50,000 alone was allegedly spent on taxis at the charity’s Christmas party.

Kids Company received £46 million from the UK taxpayer over 13 years, including £3 million days before it shut. Former Mayor of London Boris Johnson is pictured with Camila Batmanghelidjh London Evening Standard's '1000: London's Most Influential People' in 2014

Flamboyant, Iranian-born Camila could charm the birds from the trees. Then prime minister David Cameron was said to be ‘mesmerised’ by her, while his wife Samantha was a backer, along with Prince Charles and a host of other A-list celebrities and City financiers.

Kids Company received £46 million from the UK taxpayer over 13 years, including £3 million days before it shut. Rock band Coldplay ploughed in a further £8 million from royalties.

Ms Batmanghelidjh claimed her charity had 36,000 young ‘clients’.

No doubt there was and remains a very real need for children from splintered families to be supported in Britain’s troubled inner cities.

But something within the organisation was not right. It needed only a small push for the already teetering edifice to collapse. That pressure came from an unlikely quarter.

Pensioner Joan Woolard was the catalyst to Kids Company’s spectacular downfall and remains one of Ms Batmanghelidjh’s fiercest critics.

Having heard the charity boss speak on Radio 4, Mrs Woolard was inspired to sell her home and donate the proceeds — more than £200,000 — to the Kids Company.

Doubts began when she asked how the money had been spent.

The answers were unsatisfactory. Her experience of spending some time at Kids Company offices alarmed her further — and she asked for her money back.

Hers was the first public voice of dissent against this fashionable and feted good cause. Ms Batmanghelidjh denied any wrongdoing.

But the money remained in Ms Batmanghelidjh’s hands. Kids Company needed it desperately.

Encouraged by Mrs Woolard’s public stand, whistle-blowers from inside the organisation began to come forward.

The unsubstantiated allegations of sexual abuse were the final straw.

In August 2015, the charity shut down, laying off scores of staff and abandoning thousands of children.

Some of the evidence subsequently given to the Commons select committee presented a shocking litany of financial chaos, rampant nepotism and very dubious methodology.

The committee concluded: ‘There appears to have been a catastrophic confluence of factors that have conspired to allow this charity to operate as it did, for as long as it did.’

Their report said the ‘approach of successive governments and ministers towards Kids Company has proved to be an improper way to conduct government business or handle public money’.

Alan Yentob had failed to restrain his ‘unaccountable and dominant’ CEO. His employer, the BBC, was also ‘accused of poor leadership for failing to take action against him when he tried to make suggestions about the BBC’s reporting of Kids Company’.

One of the committee’s witnesses, a high-ranking worker who was granted anonymity, gave a particularly damning insight into what Kids Company had become.

She said: ‘The charity was run by the CEO as her personal fiefdom, with no regard whatsoever for the financial implications. It was simply unsustainable to continue to take in anyone who asked for assistance and, in certain specific areas, ridiculous amounts of money were spent wantonly and inappropriately.’

Ms Batmanghelidjh had favourites among the youngsters she helped. ‘One group of young adults — many of them in their late 20s — were known throughout the organisation as “Camila’s kids” and inordinate amounts of money and resources were lavished on them; creating envy and resentment among others.’

But staff were also treated lavishly, the witness stated, and nepotism was rife. ‘Sasha and Jamie Handover (the children of former WH Smith boss Richard Handover, a trustee) were both employed at KC,’ the witness said.

‘The so-called “Operations Manager” — a sweet but totally inefficient woman who kept odd hours — turned out to be the mother of one of the IT chaps.

‘Magbule Mulla — who worked in the finance department — is the sister-in-law of Jeton (Tony) Cavolli, who was Camila’s driver.’

(While her Linked In page still describes her as ‘Assistant Accountant Kids Company’, Mrs Mulla was described by Ms Batmanghelidjh in one interview as ‘the woman who sews for me’.)

Ms Batmanghelidjh would eventually admit that her charity had paid for both of Mr Cavolli’s children to be put through private schools; one of them a boarding establishment where the chairman of governors was one Richard Handover (a trustee).

Mr Cavolli had been described by Ms Batmanghelidjh as a ‘therapist tasked with dealing with difficult young men and only had a car in order to go to their aid late at night’. But in the time she worked there, the witness only ‘heard him referred to as “Tony the Driver”.’

Some of the evidence subsequently given to the Commons select committee presented a shocking litany of financial chaos. Squatters are pictured at the former offices of Kids Company in Kenbury Street, Camberwell

It was ‘Tony the Driver’ who was pictured holding the car door open for Ms Batmanghelidjh prior to that lunch at Pied a Terre restaurant last summer.

He was not her chauffeur, she later explained. He was working as an Uber driver and had given her a lift as a ‘favour’.

A university academic whose role as an Ofsted inspector in South London alerted her to Kids Company more than 15 years ago had watched its progress with alarm.

‘The whole history of Kids Company is one of a failure of due diligence by local government, donor charities, the Tory Party, Prince Charles. They all failed. It is astounding,’ she told me.

Hers is only one of many critical voices. But there is an approaching counterblast. Approaching, but repeatedly delayed. Ms Batmanghelidjh’s autobiography was due to be published last autumn. Her ghost-writer is Tim Rayment.

In early 2015 he was sent by his newspaper to investigate Ms Batmanghelidjh. Now he is firmly in her camp.

One view is that Rayment fell under her spell; like so many financiers, pop stars, politicians and royals before him, he was ‘hypnotised’, one colleague said.

‘I want to give voice to someone who has been silenced,’ Mr Rayment told me last year, rather generously of someone who had the ear of royalty and prime ministers.

‘Have I been naïve? Have I been mesmerised?’ he asks. ‘The time to make that judgment is on publication.’

The fall-out has indeed been complex and messy for those involved. Last December, Mr Yentob stepped down as Creative Director of the BBC as a direct result of his involvement in the Kids Company collapse

Last night, a spokesman for Ms Batmanghelidjh’s publisher, Biteback, said she expected the book to appear in August. She explained: ‘We had initially hoped to do a very fast turnaround on this title, and therefore gave it a very ambitious publication date.

‘But it has turned out to be far more complex, both legally and in terms of the science involved, than we had first anticipated.’

The fall-out has indeed been complex and messy for those involved. Last December, Mr Yentob stepped down as Creative Director of the BBC as a direct result of his involvement in the Kids Company collapse.

Earlier this year, it was reported that the Insolvency Service had written to lawyers acting for Kids Company’s former board members to warn them it was minded to ban them from holding directorships.They included Ms Batmanghelidjh, Mr Yentob and Mr Handover. Which brings us back to the musical.

Flamboyant, Iranian-born Camila could charm the birds from the trees. Then prime minister David Cameron was said to be ‘mesmerised’ by her

Flamboyant, Iranian-born Camila could charm the birds from the trees. Then prime minister David Cameron was said to be ‘mesmerised’ by her

‘Mr Yentob’ bewails the sudden denial of the public purse gold seam. He had mined it for years thanks to his contacts with David Cameron and the latter’s desire to give his Big Society slogan some substance and street cred.

Last night, a Charities Commission spokeswoman said: ‘When an inquiry is under way, we do not provide updates on when it is likely to conclude.

‘This is a high-profile case and when a report is available it will be posted online with full findings.’

An Insolvency Service spokesman said: ‘Our investigation into Kids Company remains ongoing. Each case has its own complexities and differences depending on the number of directors involved. There is no timescale for us to reach any conclusions. As such, it would not be appropriate for us to comment further at present.’

Miles Goslett, the journalist who first raised questions about Kids Company, in February 2015, is sceptical about the delay.

‘Both inquiries were set up the best part of two years ago and I was told privately last year they’d be published by Christmas 2016 at the latest,’ he said this week.

‘Even if these bodies are short on manpower, I’d have no difficulty believing that someone in Whitehall has taken the decision it would be politically sensible to keep them from public view for a while yet.’

Joanna Lumley and Helena Kennedy are both patrons of the Peter Tatchell Foundation (PTF)

16th January 2015,

Actress and campaigner Joanna Lumley has been announced as a new patron of the Peter Tatchell Foundation.

A number of peers have also become patrons – Labour peers Lord Waheed Alli, Lord Michael Cashman, Baroness Joan Bakewell and Baroness Helena Kennedy, and Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Liz Barker.

http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2015/01/16/joanna-lumley-becomes-patron-of-peter-tatchell-foundation/

On June 26, 1997, Mr Tatchell wrotea start­ling letter to the Guardian newspaper.

In it, he said:

‘While it may be impossible to condone paedophilia, it is time society acknowledged the truth that not all sex involving children is unwanted, abusive and harmful.

Pensioner backed Paedophile Information Exchange and may hold key to links with left wing groups

Nettie Pollard was a key figure in the London left – a Sunday People investigation reveals her to be a chief apologist for some of PIE’s most chilling demands

Even those who have lived beside her for years have little idea about her life – none of her neighbours has ever been invited inside the home she has lived in alone for almost 30 years.

But 69-year-old Nettie Pollard may hold the key to how the Paedophile Information Exchange infiltrated left wing groups in the 1970s.

She was a key figure in the London left, working for the National Council for Civil Liberties for two decades.

But a Sunday People investigation reveals Pollard to be chief apologist for some of PIE’s most chilling demands.

Our investigation found that throughout her career Pollard gave a constant stream of support to paedophiles and promoted their views. She also:

  • Supported PIE’s call to scrap the age of consent.
  • Argued against the introduction of a bill to protect children.
  • Sat on committees with known ­paedophiles and PIE members.
  • Wrote a twisted essay defending sex between adults and children.

It emerged MP Harriet Harman, ­husband Jack Dromey and former Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt had been involved with the NCCL when PIE was affiliated to it.

Mrs Harman has subsequently moved to distance herself from Pollard and paedophiles, with a spokesman stating they “did not influence any of the work she did there”.

Image result for harriet harman pie

However one source involved with the London left in the 70s claims – ­embarrassingly for Mrs Harman – that she and Pollard did work together on occasions within the NCCL .

The source said: “Nettie was a big presence in the movement back in the 1970s and couldn’t be ignored by anyone wanting to get on in the NCCL.”

Our investigation first places Pollard in 1975 working as the Gay and Lesbian Officer for the NCCL.

And that brought her into close ­contact with the infamous PIE – the child sex group which campaigned to have the age of consent lowered or scrapped.

As well as her role at the NCCL, Pollard was and remains a significant member of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality – a group that defended PIE’s rights at their 1983 conference.

But even after PIE was disbanded in 1984, Pollard made no secret of her ­sympathy for the organisation’s aims.

In 1993 she contributed a ­defence of the ­sexualisation of youngsters to a book called Bad Girls and Dirty Pictures.

Entitled The Small Matter of Children, Pollard’s essay draws on work by known paedophiles such as former PIE vice-chair Warren Middleton to build its case.

Pollard argues child sex should be legal if the act is “consensual”.

It also uses language like “willing partners” to describe sex between adults and children.

But by far the most disturbing section is Pollard’s attempt to justify the sexualisation of children.

She writes: “Far from being ‘innocent’ and becoming sexual at puberty, as was once the common belief, it is now indisputable that everyone is sexual, even before birth.”

The research cited was also used in PIE’s bid to reduce the age of consent to just four.

Pollard continued to work for the NCCL until her mysterious ­departure from the group in 1997.

She was made redundant but reports from Feminists Against Censorship implies murkier reasons ­behind her exit.

A ­newsletter from the time reads: “Within the last several months, two of NCCL’s employees have remarked that the organisation’s longest-serving staff member, Nettie Pollard, was the last civil libertarian left on the payroll.”

Challenging the cost-cutting explanation given it added: “Since she is one of the few indispensable staff members, and the most ­expensive to make redundant, we suspect economy is not the reason.”

Pollard, whose Facebook page currently shows her support for causes including an anti-drones campaign and attacks on the “Big Brother” state, also showcases her taste in music with a link to indie rock band The Donutsh – described by one of their following as sounding “like Johnny Cash biting off Johnny Rotten’s head”.

She refused to answer the door to us when we visited her home.

Feb 2014: Convicted paedophile, Tom O’Carroll told The Guardian he remained a member of the NCCL’s gay rights committee for several years after Harman claimed his organisation was marginalised. NCCL archives in London have also shown how O’Carroll, a former chairman of PIE, asked Nettie Pollard, a staff member at the organisation, about the possibility of amendments to the 1978 child protection bill.

Tatchell repeats call for lower age of consent

2 Sep 2010

Mr Tatchell’s latest comments echo those made by him last year as well as in a controversial letter he sent to The Guardian in 1997, in which he talked about the “positive nature of some child-adult sexual relationships” and even said he knew cases of nine-year-olds for whom sex with adults “gave them great joy”.


The editor of a paedophile book to which Peter Tatchell contributed an article in the 1980s was jailed three years ago for child sex offences

Warren Middleton, also known as John Parratt, was given a 12 month sentence in July 2011 after being convicted of having indecent images of children.

Middleton was the editor of Betrayal of Youth, a notorious paedophile campaigning manual to which Peter Tatchell contributed a chapter on ‘Questioning Ages of Majority and Ages of Consent’.  Middleton was also vice-chairman of the Paedophile Information Exchange, known as PIE.

Peter Tatchell  wrote an obituary for Ian Campbell Dunn, who was in reality also the co-founder of the PIE.

The obituary fails to mention his long career as a paedophile activist.

The author of the letter, Dudley Cave, was a well known ‘gay rights activist’,

Gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell has claimed he was sounded out about a knighthood

In a column for the Guardian, he revealed: “Over the last decade, I’ve had three separate phone calls asking if I would be “minded” to accept an OBE, knighthood or a peerage.

“The caller had a cut-glass accent. He declined to identify himself, saying it was just a “preliminary” inquiry

“I have no idea who the man was or in what capacity he phoned me. In all three cases, I said no.”


Peter Tatchell, has claimed that he inspired one of David Cameron’s best known lines on same-sex ‘marriage’ proposals.Mr Tatchell made the comments in a conversation with Dr Trevor Stammers (past Chairman of the Christian Medical Fellowship) outside Downing Street on Sunday (03 FEB) as a group of senior local Conservatives delivered a letter to the Prime Minister expressing deep concern about the way that same-sex ‘marriage’ plans had been pursued and the damage that is being done to the Conservative Party.

He is reported to have said:

“I wrote David Cameron’s speech for him. That line about ‘I believe in gay marriage because I am a Conservative’ came directly from what I wrote.”

The Club is a youth swimming club for children aged four years upwards

Strange how so many of the news stories relating to this case (whether referring to the man as Andrew Picard or Andrew Boeckman) have disappeared from search results (as Google says, because of European Data Protection ‘right to be forgotten’ laws) within a few weeks of the trial ending.

One also has to question whether the police or child protection agencies have advised the Chelsea and Westminster Swimming Club, where Andrew Boeckman helped organise events with young swimmers, of this man’s criminal activity?This is nothing to do with ‘mob rule’ but with protecting the young and vulnerable and not permitting another institutional cover up on the scale of Savile.

Andrew Picard – real name ANDREW BOECKMAN – would you want him at your kids swimming lessons?

Paul Boateng was introduced to the Lords on 1 July 2010; he was supported by Lord Ouseley and Lord Janner.

Janner was alleged to have befriended the manager of a children’s care home to allow him access to children so he could ‘perpetrate serious sexual offences on children’.

Janner was first interviewed in 1991 after his name was mentioned in the trial of Frank Beck, a notorious paedophile jailed for abusing boys in Leicestershire children’s homes.

He was accused of ‘grooming’ and abusing a boy aged between 13 and 15. But the CPS didn’t pursue the case.

On his 51st birthday, Paul Boateng was serenaded in the House of Commons by paedophile Michael Jackson, who was on a visit to the UK, organised by Uri Geller and Uri Geller’s good friend Greville Janner.

2002

What links Greville Janner, Michael Jackson,  Paul Boateng and Uri Geller?

51st birthday party for Paul Boateng.

This jolly enterprise included a meeting with the Lord Chancellor, Lord Irvine, a political escapologist who could tell the assembled magicians – and psychics – about how to make cabinets disappear. The distinguished entourage then proceeded to the terrace of the House of Lords, a riverside location where their lordships have been seen enjoying G&Ts on hazy summer evenings, for a surprise 51st birthday party for Mr Boateng.

In a ceremony which, to borrow Lord Janner’s remark, was totally unique, Mr Boateng was presented with a candlelit chocolate cake while his guests, led by the singer of such hits as Thriller, Beat It and Dirty Diana, offered a recognisable rendition of Happy Birthday. “What a fantastic birthday surprise – I can’t believe it,” said Mr Boateng. “I thought it was a spoof. It is the most incredible surprise. It is the best present ever.

The responsibility for dabbing one’s face with a make-up sponge was undertaken by Jackson himself. “I’m impressed by the architecture the most. And I like the gold rooms,” he said at the end of the tour. It was assumed this was not a slight on Mr Boateng, Lord Irvine or Peter Bottomley, the Conservative MP who kindly showed the party around the green benches of the House of Commons.

The official record is a little hazy at this point, but it is understood that Geller, Blaine and Jackson departed for Exeter where they have organised a benefit show to raise money for sufferers of HIV in Africa.

The latest complaint, filed by a Jane Doe who alleges that she was abused by Jackson from 1986 to 1989, when she was aged 12 to 15, claims that Jackson secretly operated, “the most sophisticated public child sexual-abuse procurement and facilitation organizations the world has known.”

Michael Jackson child sex syndicate trial date set

March 13, 2017
Wade Robson received a trial date Monday for his blockbuster claims Michael Jackson and his inner circle operated the most elaborate child sex syndicate “the world has known.”The choreographer, who says he was just 5 years old when he first met the King of Pop, is set to begin his negligence trial against the late singer’s companies MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures on March 5, 2018, a Los Angeles judge said.A Robson lawyer said the next 12 months will be spent “gaining access to the materials needed for a much-anticipated trial.”“We look forward to completing that discovery and disclosing to the public, through trial, the full extent of Michael Jackson’s serial sexual abuse of children, which was facilitated through his companies MJJ Productions and Ventures,” lawyer Vince Finaldi said in a statement.An attorney for the companies, meanwhile, said he doesn’t believe the case will make it that far.“My opinion is that summary judgment will be granted in this case and there won’t be any trial, but the court did set a trial date for a year away just in case,” lawyer Howard Weitzman told the Daily News.Robson, who has worked for Britney Spears and N’Sync and appeared as a judge on “So You Think You Can Dance,” is one of three plaintiffs making similar claims in related lawsuits against Jackson’s companies.

The choreographer, 34, filed an amended complaint in September claiming Jackson and key staffers at MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures ran a “sophisticated child sexual abuse procurement and facilitation operation.”

Robson claims Jackson and his employees worked in concert to arrange his private meetings with underage fans, cover travel expenses and shower the youngsters with gifts.

“Make no mistake, Neverland Ranch was nothing but a well-orchestrated trap,” Finaldi previously told The News. “It was custom-built to attract kids so he could groom them and decide which to sexually abuse.”

The amended complaint, obtained by The News, added new negligence claims to his suit against the two companies.

Robson claims he was brought into Jackson’s orbit as a small child in the late 1980s after winning a dance competition in Australia organized by MJJ Ventures.

Two years later, a Jackson assistant contacted his family about meeting with The Gloved One and staying at Neverland during a trip to Los Angeles, he says.

The assistant served as Jacko’s “madam” or “procurer,” his filing states.

During that visit, Jackson allegedly sexually abused Robson. The abuse continued for eight years until Robson hit puberty and Jackson lost interest, according to the complaint.

During the pop icon’s 2005 molestation trial in Santa Barbara County, Robson denied he had been sexually abused. He later recanted, saying it took intensive therapy for him to come to terms with the abuse.

In 2013, Robson’s initial claims against Jackson’s estate were thrown out when a judge ruled he’d waited too long to sue. He is now pursuing the separate civil claims against Jackson’s companies.

A source in Jackson’s camp called the new complaint “too silly” to warrant a response.

Named to Blair Cabinet

Boateng held that post until the Labour Party, led by Tony Blair, won a majority in the 1997 national elections. Blair immediately named Boateng to serve as parliamentary undersecretary of state in the department of health. Between 1998 and 2001, he held a post as minister of state in the Home Office, and then moved on to the Treasury department as its finance secretary. In May of 2002, Blair named him chief secretary for the Treasury, a high position in that ministry and one that qualified him as an official member of cabinet.

Paul Boateng

That cameo took place in 1987…Boateng came bounding onto the platform dressed as a law lord, in a wig and gown, before opening the gown to reveal his assets to an audience

Boateng is a groundbreaker in other ways too. He is also the first member of a British cabinet of any ethnic background ever to have been photographed wearing a leather jock-strap, a suspender belt and stockings – at least in public. And knowing his reputation for having a short temper and an acid tongue, he won’t be pleased for anyone to be reminded of the fact.

The son only returned to England with his Scottish mother Eleanor at the age of 14, after the 1966 coup. He went to school in Apsley, near Hemel Hempstead (where he was head boy) and read law at Bristol University before training to become a solicitor. The anglicisation of Boateng had begun, though to this day he is still widely known in Ghana.

In 1999, disbelieving pupils at Willesden High, a deprived inner-city school in northwest London, heard Boateng tell them they were lucky. He spoke of his school in Ghana where some students “did their homework under the street lamp at night because their parents did not have enough money”.

In reality, this was not Boateng -‘s experience. He was a rich boy

He was educated at Achimota, Accra Academy, Apsley Grammar School, Bristol University and the College of Law.

HC Deb 16 February 1999 vol 325 c652W

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much (a) core and(b) project funding he is providing in the current financial year for (i) Parentline and (ii) Childline; and how much he is providing for Childline’s work on bullying in schools. [70707]

Mr. Boateng

In the current financial year, the Home Office is providing £108,000 to Parentline to help them expand the service they provide into a national freephone helpline for parents. This is in addition to £25,000 from the Department of Health under their section 64 grants programme and £35,000 funding from the Department for Education and Employment to the National Stepfamilies Association for a joint project with Parentline.

The Home Office does not fund Childline.

Leon Brittan ‘being pilloried over paedophile dossier’ – says David Mellor

Ex-Home Secretary Leon Brittan is being unfairly “pilloried” over his handling of a missing dossier on alleged paedophile politicians in the 1980s on the basis of a “witch hunt”, former minister David Mellor has said.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CGufX0lWwAA4JhO.png

Mr Mellor said the file was spoken of at the time as “not very substantive“.

on his LBC radio show, he (Mellor) said he remembered “sort of chat around the department” that it “wasn’t a very substantive thing at all“.

Stephen Govier and Harriet Harman – Harriet Harman was at York at same time. Links to Longford/PIE and Proctor mate Govier:

Stephen Govier is convicted criminal who shot through the head and moved in with paedo MP David Atkinson on return to UK.

 Govier was in with the right-wing Tory crowd (Atkinson, Laud, Proctor, Hamilton) but later turned Labour

Atkinson was linked to Fashanu. Fashanu linked to Norwich City.

According to Peter Tatchell of OutRage!, he knew Justin Fashanu from the early 1980’s.
Tatchell recalls: We met at the London gay nightclub ‘Heaven’ in 1982. I had been selected as the Labour candidate for Bermondsey,and he had recently transferred to Nottingham Forest for £1 Million.
We became close friends for the next ten years.

 On his return from US jail, Stephen Govier moved in with David Atkinson MP. Paedo parties were held in Lambeth flat.

Govier and Atkinson went camping in North Wales, hence the fond memories of Snowdonia in this letter:

Would his friend, associate and Police Commissioner Graham Bright have known about Atkinson’s dangerous friends?


 So dear old Greville must have known like-minded David Atkinson MP quite well, don’t you think?

You couldn’t make it up: Govier, close friend of Atkinson, Laud and Proctor, supports Society Against Child Abuse!

Is Peter Tatchell A Paedophile Or Simply Misunderstood?

Peter Tatchell was born in Melbourne Australia on 25th January 1952, he moved to London in 1971 to avoid conscription. In 1978 Tatchell joined the Labour Party and moved to Bermondsey, South East London. Tatchell ran as the Bermondsey Labour Party candidate in the 1983 General Election. Despite Bermondsey being a Labour stronghold he lost to Liberal candidate Simon Hughes. In February 2000 he left the Labour Party for unknown reasons. In 2004 he joined the Green Party and was chosen to be their candidate for Oxford East in the 2010 General Election, however for some reason he withdrew his candidacy in 2009.
Comrade Tatchell
Peter Tatchell (the UK’s most prominent homosexual activist and a favourite of the BBC) has done more than demand the abolition of the age of consent, he has broken the law on the age of consent in Britain at least once.

Peter Tatchell is a regular on the BBC. The BBC have refused to state whether he appears as a human rights activist, homosexual campaigner or paedophilie apologist.
Peter Tatchell is a regular on the BBC. The BBC have refused to state whether he appears as a human rights activist, homosexual campaigner or paedophile apologist. They have also refused to state how much they have paid him for appearances.

As a gay 18-year-old Australian anti-Vietnam war draft-dodger, he came to the UK in 1971 and lived with a 16-year-old boy in London. The homosexual age of consent in England at the time was 21. Later he campaigned for lowering it to 16, and now he wants it lowered again to 14. What will he want after that?

When the age of consent for homosexuals was lowered to 16 an Outrage (Tatchell’s organization) banner said “16 is just a start” – it didn’t state what the end goal was.

Mr Tatchell criticises the age of consent laws. Here is a quotation from his own website:

“Nevertheless, like any minimum age, it is arbitrary and fails to acknowledge that different people mature sexually at different ages. A few are ready for sex at 12; others not until they’re 20. Having a single, inflexible age of consent doesn’t take into account these differences. It dogmatically imposes a limit, regardless of individual circumstances“.

Peter Tatchell wrote the chapter “Questioning Ages of Majority and Ages of Consent” for a book openly advocating paedophilia and finding ways “to make paedophilia acceptable“.

This book, published in 1986 and called The Betrayal of Youth (B.O.Y.), was edited by Warren Middleton, then vice-chairperson of the Paedophile Information Exchange, Britain’s number one paedophile advocacy group.

Stephen Green, anti-paedophile campaigner wrote: “The book was part of a campaign to abolish all ages of consent, destroy the responsibilities of parents for their children, deny any ill-effects on children of interference by paedophiles, and withal to make it easier for paedophiles to gain sexual access to children.“

In The Betrayal of Youth Tatchell wrote that the age of sexual consent is “Reinforcing a set of increasingly quaint, minority moral values left over from the Victorian era“.

Tatchell often ambushes public figures who don’t support the homosexual/paedophile agenda. The MSM and especially the BBC usually give him great publicity for these stunts.
Tatchell often ambushes public figures who don’t support the homosexual/paedophile agenda. The MSM and especially the BBC usually give him great publicity for these stunts.

He was not on his own in this belief.Many of his fellow socio-communists and homosexual activists thought the same:

Campaign for Homosexual Equality chairman Michael Jarrett was identifying paedophiles as an oppressed group, and the CHE list of “demands” included the complete abolition of minimum ages for sexual activity. The Labour Gay Rights Manifesto of 1985 said ‘A socialist society would supersede the family household. … Gay people and children should have the right to live together. … It follows from what we have already said that we favour the abolition of the age of consent.’

27092011583[1]


Feminists like Beatrice Faust contributed to The Betrayal of Youth, as well as other homosexual activists besides Tatchell, including Jeffrey Weeks and Eric Presland, who “related his first paedophile experience with an Asian boy of thirteen, and boasted of interfering with a little boy of six“.

The book is considered so toxic that Amazon doesn’t sell it and you cannot search its content in Google Books.

Tatchell is well aware of how much all this is bad publicity for him and keeps rationalizing and adjusting his positions, but only the ideologically blind or pathologically naive cannot see through his self-excuses.

He has prepared a standard self-defence which can be found on his own website and has been repeated verbatim on many outlets. It used to also be on the site of his friend militant atheist, Richard Dawkins, but it’s not there any more. Maybe even Dawkins draws a line at what is morally allowed, even though his motto is “There’s probably no God – now stop worrying and enjoy your life”.

In this article that supposedly should serve to exculpate him, Tatchell has nothing better than this: “The critics also cite Warren Middleton’s 1980s book, Betrayal of Youth, to which I contributed a chapter. I had no idea that he was involved in child sex abuse matters when I was asked to write.”

Considering that Warren Middleton was co-founder and vice-chairperson of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), a prominent group promoting paedophilia, it was impossible for Tatchell not to have known his propensities. In addition, both Tatchell and Middleton were part of the Gay Liberation Front/Angry Brigade, a neo-Marxist revolutionary group of radical students at the London School of Economics, thus making Tatchell’s protestations of ignorance verge on the ridiculous.

Appendix 2: “The Uranians” by Timothy d’Arch Smith: Bookseller. Author of “Love in Earnest.”

Peter Tatchell’s self-defence begins with:

“Unlike many Catholic clergy, I have never abused anyone. Unlike the Pope, I have never failed to report abusers or covered up their crimes.”

These are blatant falsities. It wasn’t many Catholic clergy, it was an extremely small minority. And, as shown in Lies About The Catholic Church Child Sex Abuse Scandal, there is no reason, except bigotry and prejudice, to single out Catholic clergy who in fact have committed fewer of these crimes than any other pedagogic institution, religious or secular.

Peter Tatchell and his homosexual/paedophile allies often attacked the Christian Church for having Christian values. There is no record of him bursting in to a synagogue or mosque to protest against their religous values.

Saying what he does about the Pope is a criminal act, it is slander. The Pope has never covered up for anyone.Tatchell and his friends in the mainstream media (especially the BBC) think that if you repeat a lie enough times your audience will start to believe that it’s true.

But blaming the Church whenever you’re in trouble is a good way to distract the public from your own deviations from the norm. It’s worked so far so why shouldn’t it work now? Maybe because people have started calling your bluff, Pete.

Peter Tatchell has a seething hatred of Christian morals and values.
Peter Tatchell has a seething hatred of Christian morals and values.

The above should tell you how trustworthy and credible Tatchell is, but there’s more.

Look at his defence of the book Dares To Speak:

“Dares to Speak was an academic book published in 1997, authored by professors, anthropologists, psychologists, sociologists, a Dutch senator and a former editor of a Catholic newspaper. It discussed the age of sexual consent and whether all sex between young people and adults is necessarily unwanted and harmful, based on what it said was objective research with young people.

The book does not endorse or excuse sexual relationships with young people that involve coercion, manipulation or damage. The authors queried, among other things, the balance between giving young people sexual rights and protecting them against abuse. These are entirely legitimate issues to discuss.”

Leaving aside the irony (probably lost on humorless Tatchell) about his using a “former editor of a Catholic newspaper” as a guarantor of the morality of a book while he constantly treats the Catholic Church like a den of abusers. The book Dares to Speak, that Tatchell praises so much as an academic achievement, was edited by Joseph Geraci, who was also the editor of Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia. The book is a collection of articles from the journal.

Before it was quietly removed, this was Wikipedia’s entry for the publication:

Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia (1987–1995) was a journal published by the Stichting Paidika Foundation whose purpose was to promote the normalization of pedophilia. Its editor was Joseph Geraci and the editorial board included articles by writers Frits Bernard, Edward Brongersma, Vern L. Bullough, and D. H. (Donald) Mader, some of whom campaigned as pro-pedophile activists.

After the normalization of homosexuality, we’ll have the normalization of paedophilia.

15092011573[1]
Here is Tatchell’s letter to the Guardian dated 26th June 1997 (a few weeks after Labour’s General Election win) which he denied writing when I asked him about it. However I can find no record of a complaint to the Guardian, the Press Complaints Commission or any lawsuit for libel:
Ros Coward (Why Dares to Speak says nothing useful, June 23) thinks it is “shocking” that Gay Men’s Press has published a book, Dares To Speak, which challenges the assumption that all sex involving children and adults is abusive. I think it is courageous. The distinguished psychologists and anthropologists cited in this book deserve to be heard. Offering a rational, informed perspective on sexual relations between younger and older people, they document examples of societies where consenting inter-generational sex is considered normal, beneficial and enjoyable by old and young alike.
Prof Gilbert Herdt points to the Sambia tribe of Papua New Guinea, where all young boys have sex with older warriors as part of their initiation into manhood. Far from being harmed, Prof Herdt says the boys grow up to be happy, well-adjusted husbands and fathers. The positive nature of some child-adult sexual relationships is not confined to non-Western cultures. Several of my friends – gay and straight, male and female – had sex with adults from the ages of nine to 13. None feel they were abused. All say it was their conscious choice and gave them great joy. While it may be impossible to condone paedophilia, it is time society acknowledged the truth that not all sex involving children is unwanted,abusive and harmful.

Peter Tatchell has repeatedly denied writing the letter above. However below is his reply in the Guardian (1st July 1997) to criticism of his original letter. In his second letter (below) he never denies writing the first letter (above) or claims he was edited in any way.

Peter Tatchell has often claimed he lives a monk-like existence living on a mere £9,000 income per annum. When I challenged him on this he changed his claim to £29,000 plus expenses. However he has refused to disclose his payments for his numerous main stream media appearances or disclose how much his yearly expenses are.

Stephen King,who even advised the courts on appropriate sentences for offenders, ?assulted many

A predatory paedophile who established himself as an “expert” adviser to the police and courts on sex crimes was jailed yesterday for seven years for systematically abusing three girls.

Police believe Stephen King, who even advised the courts on appropriate sentences for offenders, could have assaulted many others over three decades.

King had no formal qualifications in the field but was a “self-proclaimed expert on the Children’s Act and pornography – he made it his life’s work”.

King’s advice was offered to and accepted by a number of agencies, including the Crown Prosecution Service, the Metropolitan Police, the Sentencing Advisory Panel and the Appeal Court.

Mr Zinner said: “He had lectured to various criminal justice conferences at which the Met Police, the CPS, the Probation Service and other interested agencies were present.”

King recorded his activities in meticulous detail, the court heard. There were more than 560 indecent photographs, a video recording of indecent acts and a diary of his sexual encounters.

King, of Herne Hill, south London, was a member of the Paedophile Information Exchange. He plied the children with alcohol before abusing them, the court heard. One of the victims had learning difficulties and all three had been severely traumatised by the assaults. One had attempted suicide.

King’s crimes were uncovered when pornographic material was discovered on his computer while he was being investigated for alleged benefit fraud.

Luis Macchiavello, the director of London-based firm Infolog, said that King lectured as a guest speaker on child pornography at conferences organised by the company. Mr Macchiavello said he could not recall how many times King had been invited to speak.

John Carr, the internet adviser to the children’s charity NCH, said he had refused to lecture at some conferences that had been privately organised because of concerns over security.

Officers also discovered that he had worked close to children for years as a tutor, athletics coach and photographer. They fear he may have abused many more girls.

“In 2002 the defendant submitted advice to the sentencing advisory panel on offences involving child pornography. He was credited in the final recommendations to the court of appeal alongside the Law Society, Bar Council, the Law Commission and the Probation Service.”

Luis Macchiavello, director of Infolog with which King was linked, said: “He was a speaker in our events. I can’t recall how many events he spoke at. We have hundreds if not thousands of people who speak at our events.”

King’s name features in a 2002 report on child pornography submitted by the sentencing advisory panel, whose members are appointed by the lord chancellor, to the appeal court. Lesley Dix, secretary to the panel, said his name was included only because he offered a response to a consultation paper. His opinion had not been actively sought.

A spokesman for the Met said King had not directly worked for the force.

In 1974, Dunn co -founded the Paedophile Information Exchange ( PIE) with Michael Hanson. It became the leading contact group for adults campaigning for the right to have sex with children. In an interview in 1997, Dunn admitted he and Hanson had agreed to facilitate research into sex with children.
Dunn was caught on tape bragging abut interfering with a fourteen-year-old boy. The existence of the tape caused him to abandon a libel action he had brought against a Sunday newspaper, which named him as a paedophile. The encounter itself does not seem to have been a one-off – at his funeral in 1998, a young man claimed Dunn had raped him when he was fifteen. Dunn also supported a paedophile magazine called ‘Minor Problems.’
Charles Napier One-time treasurer of PIE Charles Napier is alleged to have sexually assaulted boys whilst a gym master at Copthorne School. He became an English Language Trainer at the British Council and was convicted of sexual assault against minors in London in 1995 and investigated as an alleged member of a paedophile network operating in British schools in 1996. He set up his own school in Turkey and resumed English Language Training with the British Council after serving his sentence

Arlo Tatum,[1] the executive secretary of the Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors, sued Melvin Laird, the Secretary of Defense. Tatum sued after Washington Monthly published an article revealing that US military intelligence units were gathering https://twitter.com/cassandracognointelligence on civilians and civil organizations in the US.[2]

Arlo Tatum moves to UK & joins Albany Trust after suing US army for alleged unlawful “surveillance of lawful citizen political activity.”

Tatum had composed and sung songs for Aldermaston peace marches during the 50s and had also become the Director of Peace News. [Arlo Tatum obituary, The Guardian 7 May 2014]

And Jack Straw’s autobiog reveals his MI5 file started from the Aldermaston marches

During 1975, while Paedophile Information Exchange member Roger Moody was working for Peace News he was promoting the organisation in its pages.

2 female authors/contributors to PIE’s Warren Middleton’s B.O.Y were also involved with Peace News like Roger Moody

(Chapter 4: ‘Gender Differences’ by Liz Holtom and Kathy Challis: both from  Peace News.)

Peace/anti-nuclear campaigners heavily targeted by state surveillance since pre1970s to current day:

So how with all the surveillance were the paedophiles for peace lobbyists missed?

Or were they a useful control/eye on non-paedophile peace campaigners?

Were paedophiles used as informants on anti-nuclear protestors?

Perusing Peace News from 1975+ I was glad to find ONE letter to Editor saying what I was thinking….

paraphrased: “What’s with Peace News new preoccupation with paedophile rights? What’s it got to do with anti-nuclear/peace activism?”

Writer of letter was an extremely disappointed long-term subscriber who just couldn’t fathom what had changed for Peace News


Government lawyers…in a vain attempt to keep a lid on Peter Wright’s revelations, seem to be turning a blind eye toward Peace News – the paper published passages from Spycatcher.

Jimmy Savile: The London School of Economics/National Health/Tavistock Connection

 

“These ‘educational missionaries’ spoke of schools as if they were monasteries. By limiting the idea of education to formal school instruction, the public gradually lost sight of what the real thing was. The questions these specialists disputed were as irrelevant to real people as the disputes of medieval divines; there was about their writing a condescension for public concerns, for them ‘the whole range of education had become an instrument of deliberate social purpose.’ (emphasis added).”
—John Taylor Gatto, Underground History of American Education

As a possibly last series of connections to map, I am returning to Robert Graves’ buddy William Sargant, who worked at St Thomas’ Hospital from 1948 to the end of his career as head of the department of psychological medicine. In 1962, Sargant found himself a new assistant in one David Owen, a neurology and psychiatric registrar who had only just qualified as a doctor. Two years earlier, Owen had joined the Vauxhall branch of the Labor Party and the Fabian Society.[1] The reason this is relevant is that Owen was allegedly complicit in allowing Jimmy Savile access to the psychiatric hospital Broadmoor, where he (Savile) abused countless patients over a period between 1968 and 2004 (when Savile had use of a personal set of keys to the hospital). According to The Daily Telegraph, Savile’s “involvement at Broadmoor was rubber-stamped in 1974 by Dr. David Owen, now Lord Owen, who was health minister.” Thanks to Owen, Savile “came to be in charge of Broadmoor for a period in the 1980s when he was put in charge of a task force to run the secure hospital.”

It’s generally been assumed that the reason Savile wanted (and was given) access to Broadmoor (besides visiting his pals Reggie Kray and Peter Sutcliffe) was to indulge his sadistic sexual proclivities by taking advantage of defenseless young girls (many of whom were simply runaways or troublemakers at school). No doubt this was part of it, but it may not have been the whole reason. It’s also possible, in the light of all the other evidence of similar “schooling” programs going on through the UK and the US and elsewhere for decades, that Savile had a specific role at Broadmoor, and that the institution was being used as a locale for the sorts of sexual and social research and experimentation which has fascinated the Fabians and others since at least the turn of the century. Maybe Broadmoor was, like Wedekind’s Sadian castle, a prison-school for “the bodily education of young girls”?

Nor are we talking only about Broadmoor. In 2014, Kate Lampard carried out an independent review of Savile’s predations within the British National Health Service (NHS), including over forty hospitals. Her report was quoted in The Guardian in 2015: “Savile’s status and influence . . . . was enhanced by the endorsement and encouragement he received from politicians, senior civil servants and NHS managers. His access within NHS hospitals gave Savile the opportunity to commit sexual abuses on a grand scale for nearly 50 years.” (emphasis added)

The article goes on to quote Liz Dux, a lawyer who represents 44 of Savile’s victims, calling the report a “crushing disappointment” because it held no one accountable.

“‘It beggars belief that a report which has revealed Savile was widely known as a sex pest at Stoke Mandeville can find no evidence of management responsibility,’ Dux said. ‘Ten victims had reported their assaults to nursing staff on the ward, including one complaint being made to management, yet still his deviant and sickening behaviour continued.’ She said the revelation in the report that three other doctors had committed serious sexual offences at the hospital in the past four decades suggested “something seriously amiss.’” (For the dozens of separate hospital reports of Savile’s fifty years of sexual abuse, go here.)

I have said that I wish to avoid unnecessary speculation with this work; but on this occasion I’m willing to go out on a limb, because without the horrifying context provided by Savile’s activities, the following information may seem random and bizarre. And maybe it is, but the only way to find out if the pieces fit is by placing them side by side.

The following facts are taken from a Mental Health History Timeline assembled by Middlesex University:

“In 1926 [the year Jimmy Savile was born] An appeal to The Commonwealth Fund (New York) by Cyril Burt and Amy Strachey, (born Amy Simpson 1866) ‘Mrs. St Loe Strachey’ for funds to start training psychiatric social workers at the London School of Economics (see below) and support for Child Guidance.” (What exactly do economics have to do with psychiatry or child guidance?) Three years later, in 1929 (the year Westlake founded his Forest School): “With money from The Commonwealth Fund, a Diploma in Mental Health started at the London School of Economics to train Psychiatric Social Workers. The fund’s Director, Barry Smith, had written in 1928 that ‘the training of psychiatric social workers is an essential and fundamental part of [a] child guidance program.’”

Some corroboration from the US National Library of Medicine:

“When the Commonwealth Fund agreed to finance the establishment of child guidance clinics in Britain, it stressed the need to train social workers in a university setting. Thus in 1929, the London School of Economics established the first course to train social science graduates with some experience of social work as PSWs. In the same year, the Association of Psychiatric Social Work (hereafter APSW) was inaugurated with the dual objectives of promoting mental hygiene, and raising the professional status of psychiatric social work.” (“‘Often there is a Good Deal to be Done, But Socially Rather Than Medically’: The Psychiatric Social Worker as Social Therapist, 1945–70”)

The Commonwealth Fund is a private foundation that is still around today. It was founded in 1918 by the widow of Stephen Vanderburgh Harkness. Harkness was the American entrepreneur and silent partner of John D. Rockefeller, Sr., in the founding of Standard Oil (and a director of Standard Oil until his death). Today, the Rockefeller Foundation houses all the archives for the Commonwealth fund. From their website: “As an independent, nonpartisan organization, the foundation has aimed to help develop common ground from which policymakers across the political spectrum can lead the nation toward a health care system that assures its residents have long, healthy, and productive lives.” (emphasis added)

Anna M. Harkness

Cyril Burt, mentioned above, was a member of the London School of Differential Psychology, and of the British Eugenics Society, so probably a Fabian. Amy Strachey, a.k.a. “Mrs. St Loe,” was the wife of John Strachey, a British journalist and father of the other John Strachey already mentioned in this work, the Labor politician who was at Oxford in 1922, when my grandfather arrived. Strachey joined the Labor Party the following year in 1923. From 1946 to 1950, he was the Minister of Food, which would have given him plenty of reason to have had dealings with Alec Horsley. While I have found no definite links to MI5 or MI6, his name certainly crops up a lot in related literature, and he is almost certainly one of the circle.[2]

The Mental Health Timeline continues (for 1929) by mentioning a work called Our Baby—For Mothers and Nurses, eventually published in 1936 by John Wright/Simpkin Marshall, which “on page 126 lists Idiocy under Congenital Defects”:

“This is a term for mental weakness which dates from birth. It varies in degree from a mere feebleness of intellect, to a state in which the mind seems wholly absent. Should a child fail to answer to most of the tests of normal progress given on page 88, it must be considered backward, and the child should be taken to a doctor, as systematic training should be begun very early, considerable improvement being then almost always possible.”

This description clearly evokes what would become standard operating procedure with autistics in the coming decades. And do I need remind the reader of Russell’s plan for close surveillance, categorization and the use of “behaviourism” with children, from the moment of conception onward?

The Timeline then quotes a “Wood Report on Mental Deficiency published by the Board of Control”[3] from the same year:

“the majority of the feeble-minded are to be found within a relatively small social group, a group which may be described as the subnormal or social problem group, representing approximately 10 per cent of the whole population. Most of the parents in this subnormal group are themselves of poor mental endowment, and would no doubt have been classed, when children, among the dull or retarded. Similarly the dull children of the present generation, who form a large majority amongst children in this subnormal group, are the potential parents of many feeble-minded in the next generation. Therefore, from the standpoint of the prevention of many social evils it is of the utmost importance that the problems of the education and social care of the borderline retarded child should be effectively tackled. . . . Let us assume that we could segregate as a separate community all the families in this country containing mental defectives of the primary amentia type. We should find that we had collected among them a most interesting social group. It would include, as everyone who has extensive practical experience of social service would readily admit, a much larger proportion of insane persons, epileptics, paupers, criminals (especially recidivists), unemployables, habitual slum dwellers, prostitutes, inebriates and other social inefficients than would a group of families not containing mental defectives. The overwhelming majority of the families thus collected will belong to that section of the community which we propose to term the ‘social problem’ or ‘subnormal’ group. This group comprises approximately the lowest 10 per cent in the social scale of most communities.” (Full report in several parts here.)

The Mental Health Timeline then refers to the April 1929 Journal of the American Medical Association about the establishment of the London Child Guidance Clinic (citing “Bowlby 1936” and “Tavistock 1967” and cites (in 1929) a “Conference on Mental Health convened by the Joint Committee of the National Council for Mental Hygiene and the Tavistock Square Clinic. Held in Westminster.”

The Bowlby referred to is Edward John Mostyn Bowlby, a British psychologist, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst, notable for his interest in child development and for his pioneering work in attachment theory. (A Review of General Psychology survey published in 2002 ranked Bowlby as the 49th most cited psychologist of the 20th century.) Bowlby worked during World War II in Canonbury in the child psychiatry unit with maladapted and delinquent children, which led to an interest in the development of children, and to his work at the Child Guidance Clinic in Islington, London. By his own account, he had help getting established from some “academic economist” friends.[4]

As for the Child Guidance Clinic, it was founded by the Jewish Health Organization in 1927 and was the first children’s psychiatric facility in the UK, and allegedly also Europe. From The Use of Psychoanalytic Concepts in Therapy with Families, by Hilary A. Davies:

“It was set up to meet the needs of the immigrant population who had settled in that part of London since the beginning of the century and whose children were perceived to have emotional, psychological, behavioral, and educational difficulties. A foreword to an early report by the Clinic is quoted as saying that ‘in its efforts to adjust the groping child mind to life, to make useful citizens of difficult and abnormal boys and girls [it] is doing the work of civilization.’ . . . The Clinic was able to offer a service to almost 1900 children and families from all over the UK in the first 4½ years of its existence. The Clinic later moved and became the Tavistock.”[5]

Returning to the Mental Health Timeline, John Bowlby joined the Tavistock Clinic in 1946 as Deputy Director and set up the Children’s Department to develop clinical services, training and research. In 1948, he obtained a small grant from the Sir Halley Stewart Trust to “empirically study the effects of early separation and deprivation” (emphasis added). For his research, he hired a psychiatric social worker (James Robertson, presumably LSE-trained). The London Child Guidance Clinic eventually became the Child Guidance Training Centre and was housed in the Tavistock Centre from 1967. In 1985, it merged with the Tavistock Clinic’s Department for Children and Parents and became the Child and Family Department.

I noticed in the Timeline at this point (1986) the mention of “MBE [first appointment to the Order of the British Empire, the one before OBE] in New Year Honours: Miss Eve Saville, General Secretary, Institute for the Study and Treatment of Delinquency.” A quick search revealed that Miss Eve Saville was a Fabian.[6] Whether she was related to Jimmy, OBE, I do not know and I doubt anyone else does (not counting those who do). The names Savile and Saville seem to be more or less interchangeable, and one easy way for Sir Jimmy (who called his mum “the Duchess”) to cover any possible aristocratic ancestral tracks might have been to remove one of the l’s. Eve is a somewhat mysterious character, considering there is almost nothing about her online and yet there is a Memorial Lecture named after her. She was the author of an obscure tract called “A History of the I.S.T.D [Institute for the Study and Treatment of Delinquency]: A Study of Crime and Delinquency from 1931 to 1992.”

After a period searching through Google Books, I found a most unexpected affiliation between Eve Saville and Victor Neuburg, Crowley’s ill-fated homosexual partner and disciple, and fellow phallus-worshipper with Dion Byngham. In The Magical Dilemma of Victor Neuburg, the author Jean Overton Fuller reveals, through her correspondence with Eve Saville, that Neuberg was one of the founding members of the ISTD. In a letter to Fuller, Saville writes that Neuberg “was present at the very first meeting [at Primrose Hill, near Hampstead, and] appeared as one of the original members of the Executive Committee and as Honorary Secretary at the beginning of 1931.” A list of thirty-nine Vice-Presidents for 1934 included Freud, Jung, Adler, Havelock Ellis, and H. G. Wells.

[1] Owen went to school at Mount House School, Tavistock, an English town written about by Arthur Conan Doyle and Neal Stephenson. I can’t find any link between the Tavistock Institute and the town, though it stands to reason they must have taken the name from somewhere.

[2] Without going into all the details, Strachey also has traceable links to Lord Boothby (whom he probably met at Oxford), Tom Wintringham and Victor Gollancz (of the 1941 Committee), Keynes and Laski (of LSE), Richard Acland, Tom Driberg, and so on.

[3] “In June 1924 the Chief Medical Officer of the Board of Education, Sir George Newman, appointed a committee to consider the problems presented by the ‘mentally defective’ child. A year later the committee was asked to include ‘adult defectives’ in its inquiry, so the report was presented, in January 1929, both to Newman and to the Chairman of the Board of Control. The chair of the committee was Arthur Henry Wood. Born in Reading in December 1870, he was educated at Cranbrook Grammar School and New College Oxford. The 1901 census describes him as an examiner for the Board of Education and he went on to become Assistant Secretary to the Board. He served as secretary for the Consultative Committee’s 1909 report Attendance, Compulsory or Otherwise, at Continuation Schools. . . . Also on the committee was the eugenicist Cyril Burt.”

[4] John Bowlby told Milton Senn in 1977: “The London Child Guidance Clinic was set up in a part of Islington called Canonbury. That clinic, I think, was founded in 1929.  It trained educational psychologists, social workers and child psychiatrists.  Each year three fellowships in child psychiatry were advertised—they were half-time fellowships for one year—and in 1936 I was successful in being appointed to one of them.  I used to spend every morning at Canonbury and a bit of the afternoon usually as well, and then I went on and did analysis later in the day.  I should say that I always had a few hundred pounds of private money—very important—which meant to say that I was not pressed for bread and butter. I was at the time also much influenced by two close friends who were academic economists, one of whom is my brother-in-law and one of whom was a very close personal friend with whom I shared a flat, and they represented a strong academic interest. . . . Both were very able people, both have gone a long way though unfortunately, one, Evan Durbin, died in a very tragic accident in 1948.  They were first-class people which was very important, really, because I was espousing a very novel and peculiar outlook as an analytically oriented child psychiatrist as we might call it. That was what I was aspiring to be. The whole field was still very controversial and needed a lot of academic justification. Well, to cut a long story short—first of all I had had a good scientific training at Cambridge, and secondly, my academic friends were very powerful debaters and any position which I took up I had to justify up to the hilt by argument and evidence.  This was an invaluable discipline I think.” (Emphasis added.) http://www.beyondthecouch.org/1207/bowlby_int.htm

UK child migrants sent to Australia sue government over abuse

29 Aug 2018

More than 100 Britons who were forcibly sent abroad as children under a resettlement scheme are suing the UK government over the abuse they faced.

In March, the Independent Inquiry Into Child Sex Abuse said all 2,000 survivors should receive financial compensation within 12 months.

But the British government has failed to set up any scheme providing redress.

Between 1945-70, some 4,000 children were separated from their families and sent to Australia and Zimbabwe.

As part of the scheme, children from deprived backgrounds who were often already in social care – some as young as three years old – were sent away with the promise of a better life.

The scheme was overseen by government, and managed by charities and the church. Victims say they went on to be sexually, emotionally and physically abused.

Rex Wade was one of the last children to be sent to Australia as part of the programme in 1970.

At the age of 10, he was shipped from Cornwall with his brother to Tasmania.

He says he was subjected to a punitive regime and was treated “cruelly for any misdemeanour”, to the point that his tormentors would set a dog on him and other children if they misbehaved.

“It was physical, verbal and mental abuse,” he says.

“I lost everything I ever had; the relationships I had with my family. It’s a lot to deal with and you just don’t get over it.”

‘They took my childhood’

John Glynn, who was sent to a Christian Brothers institution in Western Australia when he was eight years old, is one of the 100 former migrants to bring the case forward.

At the institution in Clontarf, he was told he was not loved by his family in Britain. Through his seven years with the Christian Brothers he was beaten brutally with a cane, and also sexually abused.

“As I get older it gets worse,” the 74-year-old says.

“I think about that a lot now. They took my childhood from me. They took my country from me, my heritage.”

For several decades, the UK sent children across the world to new lives in institutions where many were abused and used as forced labour. It’s a scandal that is still having repercussions now.

Imagine the 1950s, in the years before air travel became commonplace or the internet dominated our lives. Imagine being a child of those times, barely aware of life even in the next town. An orphan perhaps, living in a British children’s home.

Now imagine being told that shortly you would board a ship for somewhere called Australia, to begin a new life in a sunlit wonderland. For good. No choice.

Read the full article here (published February 2017)


Historically, the migration of British children was part of a longstanding policy aimed at easing the strain on UK orphanages and strengthening the British population abroad.

More than 130,000 children were shipped to Commonwealth countries from 1618 until 1970, to countries like Canada, New Zealand, Zimbabwe and Australia.

The Independent Inquiry Into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA) investigated the final 4,000 children sent to Australia and Zimbabwe between 1945-1970.

It found children suffered sexual and emotional abuse, as well as forced labour. Some were also wrongly told they were orphans, depriving them of the opportunity of meeting their birth parents.

A Department of Health and Social Care spokesperson said: “We want to reassure those affected we are committed to providing a timely response to the Inquiry’s recommendations.”

But despite the recommendation in March, the government is yet to set up a compensation scheme for the surviving child migrants.

BBC correspondent Sanchia Berg said many “of the migrants feel time is running out” as most are elderly, and some are frail.

Since March, 14 of the survivors have died.

Meanwhile, lawyer Alan Collins, who is representing the victims, said: “The government needs to step up to the plate and bring into force its redress scheme.

“Compensation can never put matters right, that’s impossible and it would be insulting to suggest otherwise.

“But it is action, it is a recognition that meets the words that have been spoken by the politicians.”

In 2010, then-Prime Minister Gordon Brown apologised on behalf of the British government for sending British children abroad.

Prince’s Trust ‘covering its backside’ over child migrant abuse, David Hill says

Former Australian ABC managing director tells UK inquiry the youth charity set up by Prince Charles had child abuse files years before expressing abhorrence

10 July 2017

The former Australian ABC managing director David Hill has accused a youth charity set up by Prince Charles of “covering its backside” by denying it had known of serious abuse suffered by child migrants sent to Australia.

Hill told a UK national inquiry in London on Monday that the Prince’s Trust had recently criticised the Fairbridge Society over the physical and sexual abuse suffered by children who were sent to its farm schools in Australia.

Fairbridge had high-level connections in the UK, including royalty, when it was running the Australian schools in the 1950s and 60s. Fairbridge was absorbed in 2011 by the Prince’s Trust, a youth charity set up by Prince Charles in 1976

Hill told the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse on Monday that he was sent to a Fairbridge farm school at Molong in NSW in 1959.

In May the society heard from many former child migrants about the appalling treatment they received at institutions run by Fairbridge, the Christian Brothers in Western Australia and other church and charity groups.

It heard that children were forced to work barefoot on farms or in quarries, their schooling was inadequate, their food substandard and they were regularly beaten and in many cases sexually abused by their so-called carers.

Hill said Fairbridge had in the past routinely lied and denied any wrongdoing when confronted about the abuse. He said the Fairbridge files had been with the Prince’s Trust for the past six years and contained many references to abuse.

Hill noted that the inquiry had received a letter from the Prince’s Trust in recent days expressing its abhorrence of the abuse suffered at Fairbridge farm schools. But he said he suspected the trust of cynicism as it had not previously acknowledged such abuse despite it being in the records they held.

“I can’t help thinking that the Prince’s Trust is simply covering its backside,” he said.

Hill was one of nearly 7,000 British children in state or charity care who were sent to Australia up until the 1970s, supposedly to improve their prospects. He said a 1956 inspection of Australian institutions had resulted in a blacklist of places that were deemed “unfit for children”.

But because the Fairbridge Society had royal and aristocratic backing the blacklist was torn up and its farm schools continued to operate.

That meant “hundreds more children, including me and many as young as four”, continued to be sent into conditions “harsher than at adult prisons in Australia”, Hill said.

Child migrants kept being sent to farm schools in Australia despite officials knowing some harboured paedophile rings

  • British child migrants were sent to Australian farm schools with paedophiles
  • A U.K. inquiry is examining sexual, physical and emotional abuse of children
  • Catholic Christian Brothers and royal-back Fairbridge Society worst offenders

Child migrants kept being trafficked from Britain to Australia despite officials knowing that some institutions they were sent to harboured pedophile rings, a U.K. inquiry was told.

Dr Margaret Humphreys of the Child Migrants Trust told the child sexual abuse inquiry in London that recruiters were sent to the U.K. to select children for church and charity-run farm schools in Australia.

‘We would categorise that now as child trafficking.

Among the worst offenders were the Catholic order the Christian Brothers who ran farm schools in Western Australia and the royals-backed Fairbridge Society which ran farm schools in NSW.

There was knowledge that some of the institutions were quite clearly pedophile rings,’ Humphreys told the inquiry.

She said the sexual abuse of even one child should have prompted an inquiry but that didn’t happen and hundreds of children were abused.

They were left ‘lonely and isolated’ to deal with the abuse on their own, she said.

Humphreys slammed the defence that such abuse was in line with the ‘standards of the day’.

‘When was it ever the standards of the day to rape children, to abuse children in this way?’ she said.

Sir John Major and Gordon Brown will give evidence to child sexual abuse inquiry

Two former prime ministers will be called to give evidence to the public inquiry into child abuse next week as it examines the ill-treatment of children sent abroad under state-approved migration programmes.

Sir John Major and Gordon Brown are the first prominent public figures to be asked to account for the conduct of state institutions before the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

Sir John is to give evidence about his government’s response as the scandal of how British children were abused in farm schools and church institutions in Australia emerged during the 1990s.

In 1983 he wrote to one MP stating that Britain was not responsible for the way child migrants had been treated in other countries.

John Major lambasted over child migrants

July 22 2017

The former prime minister is facing criticism for his handling of the issue of the ill-treatment of child migrants who were deported from Britain to Australia.

Sir John Major should have been called before a public inquiry to explain why his government refused to accept any responsibility for the plight of child migrants, a leading campaigner said yesterday.

Margaret Humphreys, director of the Child Migrants Trust, told the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) that as the scale of the scandal emerged in the 1990s her efforts to engage the Conservative government were in vain. Sir John and other ministers repeatedly said that the issue of ill-treatment of the migrants was a matter for governments in Australia and other countries.

Child abuse inquiry may demand access to royal archives

Mar 11, 2017

Britain’s largest public inquiry could seek access to the royal archives after hearing evidence that they hold material relevant to investigations into child abuse cover-ups.

The independent inquiry into child sexual abuse (IICSA) — which has declared that “no one, no matter how apparently powerful, will be allowed to obstruct our inquiries” — believes that the archives contain evidence about Fairbridge, a charity with high-level royal connections which was heavily involved in child migration schemes.

Thousands of children suffered harsh physical punishment and sexual assaults at remote farm schools run by Fairbridge in Western Australia, which were visited by members of the royal family.

Betrayed children sold into slavery

Children in the dining hall of Fairbridge Molong in 1948.

The British government betrayed thousands of child migrants sent to Australia, and a key charity ­supported by British ­aristocracy and even touching the royal family has refused to apologise for ­appalling abuse.

Former ABC managing director David Hill, a child migrant at one of the Fairbridge Society’s biggest farms at Molong, western NSW, will make the claim today before the British independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

Mr Hill will also call for the charity to publicly apologise and the British government to ­provide child migrants full ­redress and compensation.

About 7000 underprivileged children were transported to ­Australia between 1913 and 1966 as part of the Fairbridge scheme, targeted at ‘‘orphans and waifs to prevent the vices of professional pauperism’’.

But the British government not only knew of the dreadful Dickensian conditions suffered by the children, all of them underprivileged and physically and emotionally abused on the farms as child labourers in the Australian bush, they then organised for the society to get more money to transport more children.

The UK Fairbridge Society refuses to acknowledge or apologise for the treatment meted out to the children.

The inquiry has heard that 60 per cent of the children sent to Fairbridge Molong were sexually abused. Fairbridge officials have told the inquiry that responsibility for the children lay with the NSW officials of the scheme, at odds with documentary evidence subsequently unearthed showing that all major decisions and power was at the British end.

Mr Hill will tell the inquiry that none of the improved conditions were carried out — not even the most basic of comforts such as a pillow to sleep on, nor was there any accountability.

Under the new conditions the farms were to provide apprenticeships or training schemes but none was provided. Children left school at 15 to work on the largely self-sufficient farm running the piggery, slaughtering the animals for food and growing crops.

Mr Hill told The Australian he couldn’t understand how the government could continue to send children to the farm when they had been warned of the horrendous conditions the children faced.

The documents show that the children farms were condemned as unfit for children and they began suspending the migration but Fairbridge officials went ballistic and the Home Office quietly tore out the black list and hundreds more children, including me, were then condemned to such a fate,’’ Mr Hill said.

“A year later the British government then got involved in painful negotiations with the UK Fairbridge Society to modernise conditions, yet none of the ­reforms were introduced.

‘’I was sent out in 1959 and not one of the changes were implemented …. the changes were supposed to make the conditions more homely and make the farm closer to a family situation. But when I was there from 1959 for just under three years none were introduced, there were no pillows let alone a comforting arm.’’

Mr Hill’s opening statement will mark the beginning of the third stage of the British inquiry, focusing on institutional failures.

Documents of the Fairbridge Society show that there was concern for one principal, accused of sexual assaults through the 1940s but he was not removed from his position until the mid 1950s by the British commissioners.

In 1956 there was such concern about the conditions, a British commission travelled to the 26 Australian child migrant farms and subsequently black-listed 10 of them, including Fairbridge Molong, for their subhuman ­facilities.

But Fairbridge Society secretary WR Vaughan stormed into Australia House in the Strand and threatened to involve the ­society president, the Duke of Gloucester, who was the Australian former governor-general and Queen Elizabeth’s uncle.

Not only was the explosive ­report then sequestered in the Home Office files, the government later agreed with the society to increase its funding on the basis that conditions for the children improved.

Mr Hill’s 2007 book The Forgotten Children detailed stories of the children at the home, which sparked a successful $24 million class action by more than 160 of the Molong children in the NSW Supreme Court.

But Mr Hill’s further evidence of the British government cover-up will provide uncomfortable hearing for Prince Charles’ foundation, The Prince’s Trust, which merged with Fairbridge Foundation in 2010.

Some files on Fairbridge Farm Schools closed for 75 years

^^ Have you gathered these ?

That is a fascinating question to I for one will be most curious to see if any answer arises.

Certainly

no surprise if conduct of matches that of


Fairbridge Society – 1944 investigation – gross indecency

Chairman of the Fairbridge Society Charles Hambro was head of Britain’s Special Operations Executive (SOE).

He was involved in with the clandestine organisation (later known as MI6) for many years previously.


The Fairbridge Society child migrant scheme was “shameful” and “barbaric”. 

Fairbridge has refused to apologise for past injustices.

 Gil Woods, the secretary of the UK Fairbridge Society said “my highest priority is to protect the name and the reputation of Fairbridge”


 

Three former Fairbridge boys have claimed that the then-Australian Governor General, Lord Slim, sexually molested them during rides in his chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce while visiting the home. It is understood these allegations could be considered by the inquiry.

The inquiry could also definitively answer a crucial historical question. Did the British government know it was sending children to be mistreated in a foreign country?

Margaret Humphreys is adamant: “We want to know what happened, we want to know who did it, and we want to know who covered it up for so long.”

In fact, government files reveal that there was a time when the migration programme could have been stopped. It came in 1956 when three officials went to Australia to inspect 26 institutions which took child migrants.

There was enough warning of this “fact-finding mission” to allow a Fairbridge official to warn the manager of the Molong farm

The resulting report, delivered back to the British government, was fairly critical. It identified a general lack of expertise in child care and worried that children were living in institutions in remote rural areas, whereas the trend in Britain was towards fostering them into urban families.

However the report had a second “secret” section, never published, which went a little further.

This named names – including those of five institutions which were not up to standard. When the UK’s Home Office saw the report, it wanted five more added to create what became an infamous blacklist – places which should not receive more children because of poor standards of care. Fairbridge Molong and Bindoon were both on the list.

  • St Joseph’s orphanage, Sydney
  • Dhurringile Rural Training Farm, Victoria
  • St Joseph’s, Neerkol, nr Rockhampton, Queensland
  • Salvation Army Training Farm, Riverview, Queensland
  • Methodist Home, Magill, Adelaide
  • St Vincent’s Orphanage, Castledare
  • St Joseph’s Farm School, Bindoon, Western Australia
  • St John Bosco Boys’ Town, Glenorchy, Hobart
  • Fairbridge Farm School, Pinjarra, Western Australia
  • Fairbridge Farm School, Molong, New South Wales

But the report had barely scratched the surface. It made no mention of sexual or physical abuse.

Dring the post-war years, sexual accusations were made against three principals of the Fairbridge Farm School at Molong.

David Hill has revealed they included a claim that Frederick Woods – the man who beat boys with a hockey stick – was “sexually perverted” and had abused a girl resident. An internal investigation exonerated him.

This does not appear to have been disclosed by the Fairbridge Society either to the public or the 1956 inspectors. They had a schedule to keep to, and their visits to institutions spread across a vast country were fleeting.

Something strongly resembling a cover-up began. Files held at the National Archive set out the response of government officials. One wrote in 1957 that the Overseas Migration Board, which advised the government, was “sorry the mission was sent at all”.

Some on the board “urged very strongly that the report should not be published.”

The government archives record that at a meeting with the organisations running the migrant programmes, Lord John Hope, under-secretary of state for Commonwealth relations, discussed what would be disclosed to parliament from the report.

“I think you can rely upon us to do what we can in as much as we shall pick out all the good bits,” he said. “I shall not be in the least critical in Parliament.”

The UK Fairbridge Society piled on its own pressure – its president was the Duke of Gloucester, uncle to the Queen. Officials discussed the “immediate parliamentary repercussions” which could result from holding up the migrant programme.

Sir Colin Anderson, the director of the Orient Line, which benefited from the business of shipping the children, appealed for the report not to be made public because of the controversy it might cause.

In a sympathetic phone call, a senior official from the Overseas Migration Board responded that the Fairbridge Society was an “extremely fine endeavour for which everyone felt the highest praise”.

And what did the government do? Files at the National Archive show officials squirmed in institutional discomfort at the idea of taking any meaningful action.

In June 1957 the Commonwealth Relations Office sent a secret telegram to the UK High Commission in Australia – “we do not want to withhold approval”, it said, for more children to to be sent from the UK.

After more pressure from the Fairbridge Society, 16 children waiting to travel were sent on their way.

The key recommendation of the inspectors, that the British home secretary agree each and every decision to send a child, was quietly shelved.

The Fairbridge Society continued to ship out children, though concentrated on those whose mothers intended to join them later.

“The British government not only continued to approve children to be sent, but they financially subsidised for them to go. To institutions they had put on a blacklist unfit for children, condemned.”

Molong Farm School finally closed in 1973. The Fairbridge Society is now part of the Prince’s Trust and still runs activity holidays for children.

I am really angry with Fairbridge. …They just wiped their hands and walked away.” The charity, now known as the Fairbridge Foundation, continues to work with underprivileged children in Australia and Britain.

Unlike Barnardo’s, which has acknowledged that its child migrant scheme was “shameful” and “barbaric”, Fairbridge has refused to apologise for past injustices.

It argued in a submission to an inquiry by the Australian Senate in 2001 that nothing seriously wrong took place at its migrant centres.

“We have conceded all along that the treatment of children was not perfect,” said the chairman of Fairbridge in Australia, John Kennedy. “But what good would an apology do?”

Prior to arriving in Australia, the Princess met Rolf Harris, an Australian song writer and artist, at a London party for the Royal Commonwealth Society. Harris told the Brisbane Telegraph, ‘Mainly she wanted to know about Australia… She is terribly excited about the trip’. Harris added, ‘Later, when we danced, she asked if I would teach her some Australian terms’. He informed her that a Queenslander is a ‘bananalander’ and that a fine fellow is a ‘beaut bloke’. Harris also stated that, ‘She is a wonderful girl, completely natural and able to put you at ease… She is not the slightest bit stuffy. And she dances wonderfully.’1

The accent during her tour was on the youth.  Officials attempted to invite as many young people as possible to the public functions attended by the Princess.

Abuse inquiry: Australian orphanage was ‘feast of kids’

1 Mar 2017

A former child migrant, sent from Wales to an Australian orphanage, has told a child abuse inquiry how it was a “feast of kids” for paedophiles working there.

Castledare orphanage near Perth, run by the Christian Brothers order, was like “a legal paedophile ring”, he said.

The witness told the inquiry: “If someone did it in the public eye, he’d go to court, he’d get sentenced and he’d serve time.

“If he’d got a habit on, if you’re a Christian Brother then it seemed to be a free-for-all.

“We knew what would happen if you told somebody, especially in authority, they would say ‘this doesn’t happen here.'”

He went on to claim that Brother Murphy was later “transferred from place to place” to effectively hide him.

He said his time at the orphanage still haunted him and was “probably something I will never forget”.

The inquiry also heard from another former child migrant, Oliver Cosgrove, who is now in his late sixties and who also lived at Castledare.

He said the Christian Brothers, who ran the home, would visit the children’s beds at night.

The first phase of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse is looking at the way organisations have protected children outside the UK.

Between 7,000 and 10,000 children were moved from the UK to Australia after World War Two.

They were recruited by religious institutions from both the Anglican and Catholic churches, or charities, including Barnardo’s and the Fairbridge Society.

Child migrants ‘used for perverted desires’ in orphanage

Mar 3 2017

A former child migrant has described the Australian orphanage he was sent to as “a concentration camp”.

statement by John Francis Hanley was read to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).

Mr Hanley was migrated to Australia aged six and placed in the Castledare Orphanage near Perth, run by Roman Catholic order the Christian Brothers.

The children were “beaten, abused and used for the Brothers’ perverted desires,” the inquiry heard.

Mr Hanley, who was born in 1947, described being sexually abused by two Christian Brothers, both in his bed and in their rooms.

Another man – who he said “was part of the Christian Brothers paedophile ring” – collected boys from the home and abused them elsewhere, the inquiry heard.

Another former child migrant described to the inquiry the abuse she suffered at Goodwood Orphanage near Adelaide.

The anonymous witness – who was sent to Australia in 1949 – said “she was beaten into submission” by the time she left the home.

She gave evidence that during her time at the orphanage, the institution was visited by the then Archbishop of Adelaide Matthew Beovitch.

A group of the British girls “got together” and decided to tell him about the beatings.

After 2 1/2 years ICSA inquiry hears evidence from its first non-expert witness. Marcelle O’Brien, born Worthing, shipped to Australia.

IICSA child sex abuse inquiry public hearings under way

2/27/17

Former child migrants are to give “very emotional accounts” about the physical and sexual abuse they faced, the first public hearing in the independent inquiry into historical child abuse in England and Wales has been told.

Thousands of British children were sent to Australia and other parts of the British Empire up to 1974.

Many were exposed to “unacceptable depravity”, the inquiry heard.

A lawyer speaking on behalf of the UK government expressed “deep regret”.

Inquiry counsel Henrietta Hill QC said claims of “systematic sexual abuse” in institutions and work environments would be heard.

The children, she said, were sent without consent of parents, wrongly told they were orphans, and denied basic details about their family backgrounds during their future lives.

One of those giving evidence is David Hill who aged 12, was sent overseas with his two brothers to the Fairbridge Farm School in Western Australia.

He told the hearing: “We’ll never be able to undo the great wrong that was done to these children. But what is important to the survivors of sexual abuse is where this inquiry is satisfied with the evidence – name the villains.

“Many of them are beyond the grave and therefore beyond the law but it would bring a great deal of the comfort to the people who as children were victims of these children if they were named and shamed.”

In 2009, the Australian government apologised for the cruelty shown to the child migrants.

Britain also made an apology in 2010. The apology contained no specific mention of sexual abuse.

The abuse scandal of the British children sent abroad

The first phase of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) inquiry is looking at the way organisations have protected children outside the UK.

Between 7,000 and 10,000 children were moved to Australia after World War Two.

They were recruited by religious institutions from both the Anglican and Catholic churches, or well-meaning charities, including Barnardo’s and the Fairbridge Society, with the aim of giving them a better life.

Many, however, went on to suffer physical and sexual abuse in homes and so-called farm schools run by religious orders and charities.

Allegations children were picked by paedophiles to travel abroad and claims of a cover-up are expected to be made.

Aswini Weereratne QC, representing the Child Migrants Trust (CMT) support organisation, said this “long overdue inquiry” would hear of a “crushing catalogue of sexual abuse, deprivation, violence and abuse”.

She said the UK government “does not seek to defend” what she described as a “shameful period in the UK’s recent history”.

Ms Weereratne said the inquiry will hear from 22 former child migrants – their average age was nine when deported and one was aged only three or four years old.

The inquiry began with opening statements from chairwoman Prof Alexis Jay and lawyers Henrietta Hill QC and Aswini Weereratne QC

The abuse that some of the children sent abroad were said to have suffered included “torture, rape and slavery”, Ms Weereratne said.

Opening the inquiry, chairwoman Prof Alexis Jay said the task of the panel is to examine the extent to which public and private institutions have failed to protect children from sexual abuse in the past.

Speaking on behalf of former child migrant Oliver Cosgrove, who was sent to Australia in 1941, Imran Khan said: “(It was) a scheme to populate the empire with good, white British stock and which led to the physical, emotional and sexual abuse of countless children, many thousands of miles away from their families.

He added: “The fact that the witness statements are so similar in the accounts they give of abuse can mean only one thing: This was a systematic and institutional problem.”

For the government, Samantha Leek QC said: “Child migration is wrong. It should not have been sanctioned or facilitated…

“The lifelong consequences for those involved are a matter of deep and sincere regret.”

A £6m family restoration fund was set up to allow the migrants to travel to the UK and ministers are now considering extending it.

The independent inquiry was set up after the death of Sir Jimmy Savile in 2011 when hundreds of people came forward to say he had abused them as children.

The hearings are taking place at the International Dispute Resolution Centre in central London, with the first phase concerning Australia expected to last 10 days.

The Duke of Gloucester was patron of the Fairbridge Society and on a visit to Launceston in 1965 all the children at Tresca were presented to the Duke at an afternoon tea reception at Launceston Town Hall. The Duke being a royal we had all been told we had to bow when he shook our hand.

A woman who was sent from England to Australia as a child was molested and left so hungry she ate grain meant for pigs, an inquiry has heard.

Marcelle O’Brien, now in her 70s, was four years old when she was sent to a home in Pinjarra, western Australia, run by the Fairbridge Society.

They were recruited by religious institutions from both the Anglican and Catholic churches, or charities, including Barnardo’s and the Fairbridge Society

She was molested by her school’s deputy principal and caned, the inquiry heard.

Ms O’Brien is the first victim to give evidence to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

She described the “mental cruelty” and “sadistic” treatment she endured at the home where she was forced to do “slave labour”.

The inquiry heard she had been told “you’ve got no parents – they’re all dead”.

The inquiry heard that Ms O’Brien’s mother was unaware where daughter had gone.

Henrietta Hill QC, counsel to the inquiry, asked: “Is it your understanding that your mother did not know that you had gone to Australia?”

“That’s true, yes,” Ms O’Brien replied, before adding: “She didn’t know where

The Fairbridge Society in whose care Marcelle was trusted, had royal and establishment supporters. The evidence showed it was prepared to discredit the birth parents of its children.

But the names of the Fairbridge deputy principal Marcelle O’Brien says indecently assaulted her, and the “cottage mother” who treated her so badly, were not given, despite calls for the “guilty to be named”.

This is not a court. The inquiry has no powers of prosecution, only the remit to make “findings of fact”.

The foster mother later wrote to the Queen in an effort to get Ms O’Brien back to the UK, the inquiry was told.

Subsequent correspondence between the Queen’s Lady in Waiting and the Fairbridge Society was read out at the hearing.

“The child’s undesirable mother wanted her emigrated,” said a letter from the society to the Lady in Waiting.

Ms O’Brien told the inquiry this was untrue, adding: “She never wanted that. She wouldn’t have wanted that.”

The palace was apparently reassured by the Fairbridge response.

A letter from the Lady in Waiting to the society said “the Queen was pleased to hear” that it was considered to be in Ms O’Brien’s interests to remain at the school.

Ms O’Brien told the inquiry panel: “They didn’t take any notice. The Royal Family just didn’t want to know anything. They stopped you from going back to your own original home.”

For those following today’s hearing, this is a 1951 letter from Buckingham Palace to the Fairbridge Society

The society had assured a Lady in Waiting to the then Queen – wife of King George VI – that Marcelle O’Brien was “happily settled” abroad

Here’s the initial letter to Fairbridge which says the then Queen – wife of the king – had received a letter from Ms O’Brien’s foster mother

The Fairbridge letter said “the child’s undesirable mother wanted her emigrated” but Marcelle O’Brien told the hearing this was untrue

Lawyers back call for national child abuse inquiry to name perpetrators

Aswini Weereratne QC says it is an ‘issue of open justice’ that the redacted names of abusers be overturned

1 Mar 2017

Lawyers have called for more transparency from the national child abuse inquiry over the naming of the perpetrators after their identities were withheld from the public hearings.

Aswini Weereratne QC, who represents the Child Migrant Trust, said she was unhappy about the ciphering of the names of abusers at the public hearing particularly as many of them are now dead.

“I want to put it on the record,” she said. “Really it is about the naming of abusers. It is really an issue of open justice that they should be heard.” Weereratne was speaking on the second day of the inquiry’s first public hearings. She indicated she may challenge the whole basis on which the redaction of abusers’ names was being applied.

Child migrants sent to live in Australia may have been sex abuse victims before they left the UK

...new evidence from a public inquiry in Australia that suggests many had already been suffering at the hands of predators before they left the UK.

Gordon Brown says the Home Office was warned of the risks child migrants faced abroad at least a decade before the policy was finally stopped in 1970.

More than 130,000 UK children, some as young as three, were sent to former colonies such as Australia from the 20s to the 60s with the promise of a better life.

Instead they were often left vulnerable to cruelty and – in many cases –physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

Mr Brown apologised on behalf of the nation in February 2010 while still PM. He writes: “My apology was incomplete.

“We now know that scores of children were themselves subject to abuse before they were deported to foreign countries.”

One victim revealed they were just five when the sickening attacks started.

Mr Brown said the new evidence needs to be addressed urgently by Britain’s ­Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, which was set up in 2014 following the Jimmy Savile case.

That was partly modelled on the Australian inquiry. The UK probe has been beset by ­difficulties and the resignations of three successive chairmen but is now trying to proceed under the leadership of Rotherham abuse expert Professor Alexis Jay.

Mr Brown reveals the new evidence paints a “picture of violence and rape”.

He also warns that a Family Restoration Fund set up by campaigners at the Child Migrants Trust – to which the Government contributed £6million in 2010 – is due to run out of cash within weeks.

It was supposed to help those sent abroad as kids be reunited with their families but at least 100 of them have not received any aid.

Mr Brown writes: “That funding runs out in March 2017.

“But even now at least 100 migrants are waiting for the Child Migrants Trust to trace their families.

“Some are only now in the early stage of making contact with their UK relatives. Others have yet to come forward for help.

“It would be inhumane to deprive them of their last chance to meet their kith and kin.

UK Government accused of knowingly sending children to ‘crook’ institutions in Australia

Nov 26 2016

The UK Government continued to send child migrants to Australian institutions despite knowing they were being mistreated, according to allegations in a submission lodged to the UK inquiry into institutional child sexual abuse.

Class A homes

Inquiry could prompt more legal action against UK Government

Former child migrants have already successfully brought a class action against Australian authorities over the abuse suffered at Fairbridge.

David Hill, who in 1959, aged 12, was sent to Fairbridge Farm School in New South Wales, said “the British government knew that these institutions were crook and unfit for children”.

Mr Hill said legal action against the UK government following the airing of the allegations against them at the UK inquiry was likely.

“My guess is that as a result of this British inquiry you will see former British child migrants take action against the British Government, and good on them,” he said.

Britain’s Child Migrants

...unanswered questions about the rationale for the child migration policy and who drove it forward within a context of secrecy, deception and lies.

…need to address the relationship between the charities, the churches and the state in the implementation of this policy.

April 21, 2016

Liz Davies

The forced migration of children as a social policy began in the 17th Century and continued for 350 years until coming to an end in 1970.

 It is estimated that 130,000 child victims of 200,000 parents were sent to Canada, New Zealand, Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia) and Australia. Most child migrants had no idea of their birth families or the reason why they were sent to the colonies and parents were not told what had happened to their children. They were sent to populate the Empire with ‘good, white British stock’. Many of the children lived in large institutions and were used as cheap labour suffering abuse, cruelty and neglect.

The boys were trained as farm labourers and the girls as domestic servants.

But instead of a happy new life in the sun, many children encountered a Dickensian regime of poor food, hard labour and callous treatment.

As early as 1882, Dr Barnardo was sending to Australia, New Zealand and Canada ‘young people of good physique, trained to make use of their hands, of tested moral character, of an age where they were easily adaptable with few home or family ties to bind them to the mother country’ (Williams, 1943 p118).

The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry in Northern Ireland has already heard evidence from child migrants, as has the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

We lived in constant fear of being flogged or molested. We had no dignity or self-esteem. I would cry my eyes out at night and wonder what I had ever done to deserve such treatment when I had committed no crime. We were told we were the sons of whores, the lowest form of humanity.

 We need to be heard so we never, ever see this happen again.

It is not yet known whether the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) in the UK will grant child migrants core participant status and therefore enable them to be legally represented.

It is concerning that the main IICSA public hearings are not accepting personal accounts of child abuse which are instead being presented through the Truth Project strand of the Inquiry which is not part of the legal process of prosecution and justice.
