Westminster VIP child abuse inquiry kicks out ‘witness’ @ciabaudo @chrisstacey1 @reeves3915 so this day has come… It was inquiry to clear famous people of child abuse, not about justice for children who were abused. My heart weeps

Westminster VIP child abuse inquiry kicks out ‘witness’

2 Sept 2018

A woman who was a witness in the Wiltshire police inquiry into allegations of child abuse by Edward Heath has had her claims rejected as implausible.

The 48-year-old submitted a request to be deemed a “core participant”, or witness of enhanced status, at the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA). Known as WM-A5, she claimed to have been abused by 13 prominent men in a Westminster paedophile ring that included Heath, the former prime minister, and Jimmy Savile.

Alexis Jay, the inquiry’s chairwoman, examined the woman’s allegations but concluded: “I was not able to place any weight on [her] claims to have been the victim of child sexual abuse at the hands of people of prominence associated with Westminster.” She added: “None of the named individuals has any obvious or explained connection to [the claimant], and the strongest theme . . . is the fact that many have been publicly accused in recent years of involvement in historic cases of child sex abuse.”

The woman said she had been abused by senior Tories at Chequers, the prime minister’s country home, at a time when Labour was in power. She listed sites where abuse occurred but “gives no explanation as to how she came to be in such disparate places as Chequers, a US military base at Naphill and Stoke Mandeville Hospital”, said Jay. “I do not regard [the] allegations as plausible.”

The claimant is challenging Jay’s ruling and the statement was removed from the IICSA website. The inquiry said: “We received a complaint about the notice of determination and took it down while it is addressed. It will be republished in the next few weeks.”

There have been rumours for some time about a tunnel between the Base/Nuclear bunker at RAF strike command Just outside High Wycombe Bucks and the former USAF base at Daws Hill 10 or so miles away. This rumour may well be true as there were many natural caves that used to spread under the town that were used previously used by the Hellfire Club.

Update: Jan 10 2017

Is this jumbo jet Christmas party with Jimmy Savile – the BA charity project Skyride – the pre-cursor of Dreamflight?

“Christmas jumbo jet party for children” in 1985 in England)

savile-jumbo-jet-children-1985

Children’s Christmas Party on Board a Jumbo Jet – Jimmy Savile with Partygoers  1985

 

Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce MBE and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways – co-founders Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, former British Airways flight engineer and flight attendant respectively

 

Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

link

Derek Pereira had just helped organise a one-hour flight to give children the chance to experience a plane trip and thought that he could do something much more exciting.

 

Jimmy Savile and Derek Pereira would have likely known each other from Stoke Mandeville:

Mr Pereira had first become involved with the disabled when he volunteered to help at the Stoke Mandeville handicapped games in England in 1983.

link

At a party for the participants (of the one hour flight) he announced that he wanted to take a plane of children to Florida the following year.

The following morning he received offers of support, which led to the start of a mission that gives hundreds of children the chance to fly to Florida, US, and visit Disneyworld, Seaworld, and other places every year.

Determined to make Dreamflight a reality, Mr Pereira approached the then airline chief medical officer who agreed to pass the information on to the BA chairman Sir Colin Marshall, who turned down the idea.

Mr Pereira promised to do the flight with no cost to the airline by raising money.

Sir Colin gave him the go-ahead but there were still major obstacles to overcome, such as finding money for the flight’s tariff of $100,000 (BD37,800).

However, a British Post Office party brought in $2,000 (BD756), followed by a donation of $10,000 (BD3,780) from an investment company and that was the start.

Children chosen for the trip were sick, but they had to be fit enough to travel.

Although Dreamflight was supposed to be a one-off event there was so much support for it that it continued on an annual basis and was registered as a charity, with Mr Pereira as a trustee.

Shortly before his first arrest, Salmon was hailed by Princess Diana for taking 300 ill and disabled children to Disney World in Florida. He was asked to join the inaugural Dreamflight charity trip, co-founded by former British Airways cabin crew member Patricia Pearce in 1987, as chief medical officer. The former doctor said he was phoned by British Airways and asked to pick 300 ‘very sick and handicapped’ children who would benefit from the once-in-a-lifetime experience. Princess Diana waved the flight off from Heathrow Airport, with 298 young children aboard, including one of the girls who later claimed Salmon indecently touched her during a medical appointment.

The stars started to arrive to meet the children.  These included  Bobby Moore, Steve Davis, Rolf Harris, Roy Castle, Pete Murray, Liz Frazer, Michael Strachan, Floella Benjamin, The Bucks Fizz group and Jimmy Tarbuck.”

“In the early years Rolf Harris and Jeremy Beadle would come along to the pre-trip party and entertain the children.”

(pg 68/pg95)


‘In the 1970s Jimmy Savile had a financial interest in Le Cardinal/Maison Royale nightclubs in Glen Fern Road. I often used to see him in that area of the town.

I think he took part in the torchlight run with Ken Baily and Roy Castle as part of Bmth Carnival Week.

He would have loved this young people orientated event too. Similar to Jersey Battle of Flowers Parade by look of it which he attended, and with choosing a Miss Bournemouth…

When I was a child, growing up on the mean streets of Bournemouth, Roy Castle always seemed to have pride of place in the carnival parade every summer.

link

In a summer that witnessed Secretary of State for War John Profumo resign over his affair with Christine Keeler, £2.3 million stolen in the Great Train Robbery in Buckinghamshire and Pauline Reade’s disappearance on her way to a dance in Manchester, the first victim of what would later be known as the Moors Murders, Jimmy Savile’s moneymaking bandwagon rolled into Great Yarmouth where he was compère for a seasonal showcase at the Royal Aquarium.

The main attraction was teenage singing sensation Helen Shapiro, who had first topped the charts as a 14-year-old. Among those lower down on the bill were Roy Castle and an upcoming comedian by the name of Ronnie Corbett.

pg 171, In Plain Sight, The Life and Lies of Jimmy Savile – Dan Davies

Aged ten, Shapiro was a singer with “Susie and the Hula Hoops,” (with her cousin, 60s singer, Susan Singer) a school band which included Marc Bolan (then using his real name of Mark Feld) as guitarist.

She played the role of Nancy in Lionel Bart‘s musical, Oliver!

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

Stamford Hill also seemed to produce alot of the celebs and music stars of the day, Helen Shapiro, Marc Bolan, Malcolm McLaren.

 

ten-year-old local girl Helen Shapiro was singing in a group called Susie and the Hula Hoops, along with a boy called Markie Feld, later to change his name to Marc Bolan. Two years on, in 1962, she’d have two number one hits. In ’59 she and Markie were both members of Stamford Hill Boys and Girls Club in Montefiore House (now replaced by a block of flats just south of Holmleigh Road), as were Alan Sugar, one day to get knighted for services to himself, and Malcolm Edwards, soon to become Malcolm McLaren.

Update: 

Susie, former wife of Dr Michael Salmon,  who sexually abused girls at the Stoke Mandeville hospital where Jimmy Savile raped children, claims she was “shocked” at what her husband had done

dreamflight-1987-salmon

6 Feb 2015

Mrs Salmon attended everyday of the first trial. His wife Susie, who has stood by him throughout proceedings, sobbed as he was taken down to the cells.

His wife, to whom he has been married since 1979 (married 37 years as of 2016) claims she didn’t know about his abuse…she had no idea what had happened

Mrs Salmon did not attend the latest trial, but she admitted she went everyday of the first trial ‘because I needed to know exactly what he was being accused of and make up my own mind.’

Mrs Salmon was adamant ‘I was very shocked’ what her then husband had done – and she had no idea what had happened.

ww:

Well that can’t be true –

How could she not know and be “shocked” when she was married to him when he was first jailed and convicted of abusing children in 1990 and then remained married to him

 

On release from prison, Salmon lived at Woodgreen in the New Forest area of Hampshire with his wife Susie, pursuing his interests in butterflies and photography. More recently the couple set up home in Park Lane, Salisbury, before he was once more charged with sexually abusing youngsters. His wife has stood by him, supporting him each day in court during his five-week trial.

What kind of person would stay married to a convicted paedophile??

Salmon’s previous abuse had come to light in 1987 during an audit inquiry in the hospital, when detectives searching his office for evidence of fraudulent activity discovered letters from young female patients and launched a further probe into his behaviour.

He was asked to join the inaugural Dreamflight charity trip, co-founded by former British Airways cabin crew member Patricia Pearce in 1987, as chief medical officer.
He was jailed for 18 months in November 1990 after admitting indecently assaulting three girls as young as 12. 

He served around 18 months in Grendon Underwood Prison and was struck off the medical register, never returning to his profession.

Mrs Salmon was a nursery nurse -at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital 

Michael Salmon lived in Buckland, near Aston Clinton, after his second marriage in 1979 to a nursery nurse working at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital. “My eldest son contacted the BBC and said he would like to go on Jim’ll Fix It,” Salmon explained. “Martin was a bit of a celebrity when he appeared on it.”

link

Michael Salmon, 81, was convicted of 14 counts carried out at Stoke Mandeville and the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospitals between 1975 and 1989.

Salmon was abusing children when she worked at the Royal Buckinghamshire hospital as a nursery nurse

Salmon was also convicted of raping a girl on two occasions at his home

Residents in his village had long held suspicions, with one neighbour telling the Mail: ‘I thought he was a dirty old man.’


ww:

Also in the article, the repeating of the mantra – that Salmon and Savile were not linked despite:

sav-and-3-docs

Leeds General Infirmary, 1968.
Savile abused victims as soon as he started frequenting Stoke Mandeville in 1968, the report said.
He became a porter at the hospital, having been invited in by a fellow porter who had worked with Savile at Leeds General Infirmary, where the DJ had also abused patients.
Savile’s victims at Stoke Mandeville included an eight-year-old boy, and a girl, also eight, who was raped at least 10 times by Savile when she visited relatives there. One victim was systematically abused in the chapel by Savile, who was often accompanied by another, unnamed man. “Every time I went in that room I just knew he would touch me wherever he wanted to touch me,” she said.

 

“at Stoke Mandeville there is evidence like Abigail’s that indicates …that really important people knew what was going on…”

Between 1972 and 1985 nine verbal complaints and one formal report were made about Savile by his victims.

The formal complaint in 1977 came from the father of an 11-year-old girl who was sexually abused by Savile in a treatment room. The girl screamed hysterically, and a senior nurse arrived but told her to be quiet, saying Savile would not do such a dreadful thing and he raised a great deal of money for the hospital.

The incident “was serious and should have led to Savile’s suspension from the hospital and a formal police report being made”, Johnstone said.

This was a serious allegation and should have been investigated fully as it was reported to a hospital manager.”

Politicians, civil servants and NHS managers gave Jimmy Savile free rein to sexually abuse 60 people, including children as young as eight, over two decades at Stoke Mandeville hospital, two damning reports have concluded.

Sir Jimmy Savile:
1965: Records show abuse started at the BBC, at Leeds general infirmary, where Savile was a long-term volunteer porter, and at Stoke Mandeville hospital, where he also volunteered.

Also of note, the msm have referred to his loyal wife with 3 different names –  as Mary, Ann and Susie??

2013:

In 1990, the paediatrician was jailed for indecently assaulting three other girls, two aged 13 and one of 17.

He served three years in prison and now lives in retirement with his wife Mary, 70, in a £750,000 cottage in the heart of the New Forest in Hampshire.

Before and after his first paedophile conviction, Michael A. Salmon worked for the BBC

Salmon travel to Zambia in September 1984 with the BBC Natural History Unit.

After Dr Michael Salmon’s paedophile conviction in 1990 he worked for the BBC in 2002

The dull, grey morning of 28th July 2002 saw a rather special attempt to attract Purple Emperors down to the car park. BBC naturalist Chris Packham, accompanied by butterfly expert and author Dr Michael Salmon (who was also Wiltshire’s bug recorder) and that excellent wildlife cameraman Graham Hatherley, arrived to film the Emperor for a TV piece about butterfly collecting. Despite having been advised that activity would be at its peak some two weeks earlier, the team were prevented by Chris Packham’s commitments from an earlier visit. Michael Salmon, who has studied and written about the lives and activities of the great lepidopterists of the past, brought along their recommended equipment for attracting and catching the butterflies, and set it all out in the car park. This ranged from an antique butterfly net to a large white sheet on the ground, mirrors to reflect sunlight into the trees, and fruit, salmon, horse dung and bottles of urine – the latter provoking the following exchange: ‘what do you think of my sample – you are an ex-medical man, Mike’? ‘It tells me you have a very good renal function, Chris’.

Details of three doctors passed to police investigating Jimmy Savile allegations amid fears of paedophile sex abuse ring

The details of three doctors, who are alleged to have abused young people they were caring for, have been passed to detectives investigating allegations of sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile.

The move comes amid allegations that the doctors, who worked at hospitals where Savile had links, were involved with a network of child abusers, which also included the disgraced BBC presenter.

A report in the Guardian today claims that the three doctors have been identified by victims who came forward in the last couple of weeks – and that their names have now been passed to police.

Three doctors ‘collaborated in the abuse’ by Savile with one ‘helping select child patients to rape’

Dr Raymond Brown, who worked as a consultant paediatrician with Salmon, said the doctor would have known Savile because everyone at Stoke Mandeville knew him.

Dr Raymond Soloman  Brown
Dr Raymond Brown qualified in South Africa at the University of the Witwatersrand (“Wits University”) Medical School in 1966 and spent the next 6 years working in both district and teaching hospitals in Johannesburg, obtaining his higher paediatric qualification in 1971(Fellowship of the College of Physicians of South Africa with Paediatrics). Raymond emigrated to the UK with his family in 1972 and obtained the MRCP qualification in Edinburgh (MRCP(UK)), within a week of his arrival!   He worked in the Neonatal Unit at The Hammersmith Hospital as a Registrar, then at Northwick Park Hospital then became Senior Registrar at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford in 1973. During this period Raymond spent a year as a research fellow in the Department of Clinical Pharmacology, which proved to him that he would remain a clinician rather than an academic!He was appointed as Consultant in Paediatrics at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in 1976 and worked there until he retired from the NHS in 2007.Raymond initially had a small private practice in Aylesbury then The Chiltern Hospital in Buckinghamshire from about 1980, which expanded after he retired from the NHS. He was asked to start a private outpatient clinic at the new Oxford Children’s Hospital and continues to do so.In 2007 he met Dr Ian Hay (previously his Senior House Officer in Oxford) at a meeting at the Royal Society of Medicine and was very pleased to be invited to work with Ian’s private Practice at the Portland Hospital, London and has done so ever since.  He is a highly respected member of the Dr Ian Hay Ltd practice and his contribution over the years with some of the more complicated cases, has been invaluable.Raymond’s interests in his NHS years included the management of respiratory problems, diabetes, the newborn, including neonatal intensive care, but particularly clinical cardiology. Regrettably, he does not perform echocardiography any longer as he does not have enough ongoing exposure having retired from the NHS,  to make this a safe activity for his patients. As a General Paediatrician, Raymond’s practice has covered all aspects of paediatrics, however he has little specialised experience of Developmental Paediatrics, which he leaves to those with a specialised interest in this area.

The sex attacks between 1973 and 1988 occurred at the same time as (Savile’s) offences.

 On another occasion the girl, who suffered from a genetic condition which causes tumours, was allegedly gang-raped when she was aged between 12 and 14.

“After she was raped by three grown men she was taken back to her hospital bed in a wheelchair by a hospital porter.”

In 1980, government ministers appointed Savile as chief fundraiser of the new National Spinal Injuries Centre (NSIC).

The government had given him the use of a ‘courtesy room’ at Admiralty House for entertaining leading businessman for the Stoke Mandeville campaign.

Jimmy Savile would be invited to spend Christmas at Chequers with the Thatchers.

As one of the highest-profile entrants in the inaugural London Marathon in the late spring of 1981, Savile had written to the Queen after the Lord Chamberlain, Lord Maclean, ruled that the following year’s race would not be routed up the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace. In February 1982 it was announced that the Queen had decided to overrule the decision.

After fixing it for the 1986 race to be routed up the Mall, Jimmy Savile was rewarded with a lifetime entry into the London Marathon. He became a regular feature of the television coverage, waggling his cigar at the start and the finish, grinding ever forward surrounded by a phalanx of running pals, and waving to the crowds who cheered him every step of the way. After finishing the 1986 race he even popped into the palace for a shower and a cup of tea with the Queen. ‘This man Savile has the keys to so many doors, said marathon organiser John Disley, shaking his head in wonder. ‘I just don’t know how he does it.’  (Sunday People , 20 April 1986)

Letters were sent inviting those nominated to come, and asking their parents to sign in loco parentis forms.

Queen’s Dressmaker “Lillian” Joyce Burfield RVO and cousin Dame Yvonne Trueman (Derek Pereira’s sister)

The Queen’s dressmaker is cousin to the Derek Pereira, the creator of Dreamflight, and his sister,  pilot and charity fundraiser Dame Yvonne Trueman.

Derek Pereira brought Michael Salmon on board the first Dreamflight in 1987.


via troy:

Recent articles on Salmon say he was an organizer of Dreamflight.

Was he involved in the creation of Dreamflight with Pereira and Pearce?

And how in the world could Dreamflight be created through Stoke Mandeville by a Stoke paediatrician and two BA-employeed cousins of the Queen’s dressmaker (who both volunteered for Stoke) without Savile having his grimy, perverted hands involved with it?!


Dreamflight

Stoke Mandeville Hospital provided paediatric advice and wrote to paediatricians throughout the country to nominate children.  Letters were sent inviting those nominated to come, and asking their parents to sign in loco parentis forms.   

Next the organizers needed to find funding for the lease of a 747.  Derek’s small cottage in the wilds of Buckinghamshire became the command centre for organising large numbers of people to raise the money.  The BBC was approached to make a documentary programme.  Filming started in the cottage to show the ‘organisation’.

Scandal, though, was already in the air. Two months earlier, a chemistry teacher left after his homosexual fantasies were published on the internet.

Then came disclosures that three girls had been drugged and sexually assaulted in a dormitory

. .. it emerged that the headmaster, Richard McDonald, was not on a sabbatical but in prison on charges of sex offences against children.

Media stories of debauchery and drinking among the pupils followed swiftly.

It was the Duke of York who was most keen to send his daughters to the British-run Alpine establishment where the fees range from £15,300 to £22,325 a year. He was particularly attracted by the school’s ethos which was based on the philosophy of Kurt Hahn, the founder of the Duke’s own alma mater, Gordonstoun.

Patricia Pearce and Derek Pereira back home at Heathrow

Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce MBE and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways – co-founders Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, former British Airways flight engineer and flight attendant respectively

Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

link

One by one the 288 children walked or were carried off the British Airways jet into a sea of smiles from a crowd of clowns and well-wishers.

An hour after landing Monday evening at Orlando International Airport, the British youngsters, suffering from incurable diseases, were aboard a caravan of 13 Greyhound buses and preparing for an eagerly awaited three-day tour of Walt Disney World and Sea World.

The unprecedented effort to bring the children to the Central Florida attractions was the brainchild of British Airways flight engineer Derek Pereira and flight attendant Patricia Pearce.

Quote:
Dreamflight is a UK-registered charity that was started in 1987 by its two founders, Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, who were both with British Airways.

Mr Pereira had first become involved with the disabled when he volunteered to help at the Stoke Mandeville handicapped games in England in 1983.

Pat Pearce MBE Biography

my dream flights pat pearce.GIF

Dreamflight co-founder Pat Pearce MBE has led an amazing life, from her days of flying around the world including 2 weeks with HM Queen Elizabeth II, to setting up a one-off trip for 200 children to America – a ‘one-off trip’ that has happened every year for the last 25! As we embark on the 26th Dreamflight trip, the inspirational story of Pat Pearce MBE has been captured in the autobiography ‘My Dream Flights.

link

Patricia Pearce MBE, who joined BOAC (British Airways’ long-haul predecessor) in 1962 – a year before Elizabeth II was crowned – and served The Queen on her scheduled two-week Royal visit to New Zealand, in 1974, said: “The trip ended up lasting almost two months because the Heath government was brought down in the middle of the trip so the Royal couple had to come back to the UK and then fly back out again.

Savile lived at Stoke;

Jimmy Savile was given a bedroom in a building used to accommodate young medical students

Savile was free to come and go from his own flat on the hospital premises whenever he chose.

Furnished with leather sofas, chandeliers, a bed and a shower, it had its own special front door with a gold letter box and plaque.


Savile was even allowed to continue puffing away on his trademark cigars within the suite after smoking was banned throughout the rest of the hospital.

In 1978, Jimmy Savile described what he got out of the association with the Buckinghamshire hospital. “There are forty wards at Stoke Mandeville… and they are all filled with people; I will be able to do exactly what I feel like doing. If I feel like going on the ladies’ ward and pulling their legs, I can do that. If I want to go the kids’ ward and have a bit of a knock about, I can do that.”

In 2009, two Surrey Police officers interviewed Savile in his private office at the hospital where, secure in his lair and surrounded by the bricks and mortar he considered to be his own, he obfuscated, denied and then issued threats of his own.

Salmon was a child-abusing pediatrician charity organizer for Dreamflight, while Savile, a child-abusing children’s charity organizer, raped children at Stoke;

 Special handshake

Queen honours volunteer Yvonne Trueman

Sister of Dreamflight’s Derek Pereira – Yvonne Trueman

The Order of Saint Joachim is pleased to have contributed to Dame Trueman’s charitable projects and offers its warmest congratulations

trueman-and-queen

A LONG-TIME Bahrain resident is to be honoured with an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) for her social work in Bahrain and abroad. Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is expected to present Yvonne Trueman with the award in a ceremony to held at Buckingham Palace, in London, UK, this summer. The Briton has been greatly involved in fund-raising in Bahrain and helping orphans in Belize, for more than 25 years. Mrs Trueman, who has been a resident of Bahrain for more than 25 years, found out she was on the honours list when she received a phone call from the UK.

It is a project she committed herself to more than 10 years ago, following the death of her son Captain Julian Pooley, a helicopter pilot in the British Army.

It was only after his death in a road accident while stationed in Belize in 1994 that she learned how much he had been doing for the children of an orphanage in Belize City, so she decided to carry on for him.

Wildtracks is a volunteer, non-profit organisation located on the north-eastern coast of Belize, which focuses on conservation and environmental education. Mrs Trueman’s fund-raising not only helps support the orphans at the Dorothy Menzies Child Care Home, but also to send some of the children for weekends at Wildtracks.

Mrs Trueman was already a veteran charity worker long before getting involved with the Belize orphanage, having started running to raise funds for the Muharraq Geriatric Hospital 20 years ago.

Thousands of dinars were raised over the course of the many kilometres she covered in four London marathons, two New York marathons and half a dozen local half marathons.

Mrs Trueman’s charity work also includes her involvement in the Dreamflight project, which takes seriously ill children on a 10-day journey-of-a-lifetime in Disney World, Orlando, Florida, US.

She has been Dreamflight Bahrain’s chief fund-raiser for the last five years, but has been involved in Dreamflight since her brother Derek Pereira founded it in 1986.

Every year, since 2001, Bahrain has been able to send two children on Dreamflight as ambassadors of the kingdom, joining hundreds of other seriously ill youngsters from the UK and Hong Kong on the holiday, which is supported by British Airways.

Mrs Trueman is also a pilot, who is encouraging flight training among nationals and residents of the Gulf states. She earned her private pilot’s licence following months of training in the UK more than 30 years ago.

Subsequently, she joined the family aviation business and travelled the world engaged in sales and marketing.

She also compiled several flight guides for private pilots and worked as a correspondent in Switzerland.

Finally, she worked as an aircraft broker (selling aircraft to the uninitiated), and it was in this capacity that she first came to Bahrain in the late 70s.

Bahrain resident Yvonne Trueman, who along with her brother Dreamflight founder Derek Pereira helped make Dreamflight Bahrain a reality in 2001, is getting ready to auction off her Ready Steady Cook signed apron.

Ms Trueman and her daughter, Katharine Pooley, are to appear in the popular television show Ready Steady Cook on BBC TV next Wednesday.

Her daughter – Katharine Pooley – interior designer to the super-rich

…she has designed everything from cottages to castles — one of which, Forter Castle in Scotland, she owns. Currently giving another castle a makeover for a client in Buckinghamshire

She comes from a family that relishes a challenge. Her father, Robert, has just received the MBE for services to aviation. He created a flight equipment company in 1957 after serving in the RAF, and it was he who bought then-derelict Forter Castle in Perthshire in 1990. The 1560s wreck is now a glamorous holiday let, having been passed on to his daughter who has filled it with Scottish charm.

Today, Pooley, owner of a high-end homewares boutique in Walton Street, SW3, and with a 40-strong design company, is at her Chelsea home to chat. However, she pounces on the phone and starts quick-fire bidding on lots in  Sotheby’s Duchess of Devonshire antiques sale to use in forthcoming projects for wealthy owners who want something with grand connections.

Katharine now has her own shop on London’s Walton Street and counted Mohamed Al Fayed, the owner of Harrods, as one of her first clients. Visitors to her shop now include many stars, including Elizabeth Hurley and Ivana Trump, and she has won two Decorex awards and an Andrew Martin award for interior design. Katharine works with her husband, Dan Voyce, has a staff of 20 and works on properties around the world.

Royal Institute of Navigators at a special ceremony
in London. Dame Trueman received her award from

The award was made In recognition of her lifetime
devoted to general aviation as a cartographer, author
and pilot, and her active promotion of private flying
in the Middle East
. Dame Trueman is also active in
Bahrain charitable work and known for her role in
the Bahrain Dreamflight Project

Yvonne also served as a co-pilot during the Iran/Iraq war ferrying passengers out of Baghdad to Kuwait.

Hailing from Hatfield in England, she belongs to a family of dedicated charity workers. Between her and her two brothers, they have run over 50 marathons for good causes.

Personally, Yvonne has run four London and two New York marathons along with a number in Bahrain.

Yvonne’s first landing in Bahrain was almost 30 years ago when she came here with her husband, Dr Arthur Trueman.

She said: “He was the Chief Medical Officer at ALBA for 10 years until his death in 1987. He was very well-known in Bahrain – in those days Alba Medical Centre also looked after Gulf Air, British Airways and other major companies in Bahrain, it was a large practice with three major clinics for all the staff and their families.

“When my husband died, I decided to stay on for two years, but have been here since.”

Gulf Weekly – June 6 – 12, 2007
Bahrain’s superwoman


Lillian Burfield seated

A SPECIAL toast to the Queen will be raised in Bahrain today, as she celebrates her 80th birthday. For Bahrain resident Yvonne Trueman has a personal insight into the woman who has worn the crown for 53 years. For over 40 years, the Queen’s wardrobe has been designed by English couture house Hardie Amies, of Saville Row.

The mainstay of Hardie Amies was ‘Miss Lillian’, who has dressed and made many of the Queen’s clothes over the decades.

‘Miss Lillian’ is her professional name, but to Mrs Trueman, she is simply cousin Joyce.

There is another ‘royal’ link to Bahrain – for Joyce made the dress which the Queen wore when she met the late Amir HH Shaikh Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa, in 1979.

Four years ago, Joyce, whose family name is Burfield, visited Bahrain to give a talk to the American Woman’s Association.

Two years ago Joyce was awarded a Royal Victorian Order (RVO), which is given in recognition of loyal services to the royal family.

Last year, the family was again honoured when Yvonne was made a member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) by the Queen, in recognition of her work for charity here and abroad.

She received the award from the Queen in a Buckingham Palace ceremony last June.

“It was one of the most exciting things that has ever happened to me, I was thrilled,” she said.

Now retired and enjoying doing voluntary work, Joyce looks back fondly on her many visits to fit dresses for the Queen.

“I’ve visited all the royal homes, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral, I have seen them all,” she said.

Stoke-Mandeville Hospital  Paedophile Ring

Multiple doctors accused of child rape were working at Stoke Mandeville, alongside Sir Jimmy Savile – who said “I own this hospital”

Bruce Bailey has been accused of raping a girl when she was 11 as she waited to have an operation

Former surgeon, Dr Bruce Bailey, at Stoke Mandeville hospital, accused of sexually abusing four-year-old girl while reading her bedtime stories

Bruce Bailey worked at world-renowned Stoke Mandeville Hospital

He is also accused of raping girl when she was 11 as she waited for her operation

Bailey, who died in 2001, is believed to have known paedophile Savile

He is second doctor at Bucks hospital accused of abusing patients

The alleged victim – who says she was also indecently assaulted by Savile – claims a junior doctor saw Bailey indecently touching her but nothing was done.

She is being represented by abuse lawyer Liz Dux, of Slater & Gordon, who is also working on behalf of 72 of the late Jim’ll Fix It star’s victims.

Ms Dux said: “My client’s horrific ­experiences show why a reform to the law to introduce mandatory reporting of abuse by those in regulated activities is so vital.”

His plastic surgery training was at Stoke Mandeville, where he worked with J P Reidy. From 1963 to 1990 he was a consultant at Stoke Mandeville.

And yet another paedophile doctor at Stoke-Mandeville where Savile had free rein.

Doctor John Narendran
The assault occurred in a private room whilst the doctor was employed as a locum registrar at the Hospital. The doctor denied charges of indecent assault but was later jailed for
21 months on 16 October 1996. He was struck off the General Medical Council register on 22 January 1997.

Angry Judge Jails Pervert Doctor of Stoke Mandeville

Angry Judge Jails Pervert Doctor of Stoke Mandeville

A DOCTOR at Stoke Mandeville Hospital blindfolded and sexually assaulted a 12-year-old boy patient.

John Narendran, 56, was jailed for 21 months after Judge John Murchie refused to wait for pre-sentence reports saying the doctor had shown no remorse.

`This is an offence which is so serious that members of the public would not feel justice had been done if a judge did not pass an immediate custodial sentence,’ he said. `Doctors are trusted with the bodies of people. This was a bad breach of trust.’

The boy was injured playing football, Reading Crown Court heard. He was taken to the hospital near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, which is world-renowned for its treatment of spinal injuries.

One of the doctors who examined him was Sri Lankan-born Narendran, who introduced himself as Dr John, said Mr Simon Davis, prosecuting.

`Dr John’ told the boy’s parents he wanted to help their son and they should not tell anyone, as it was a case for `specialist treatment’.

The next day, another consultant said the boy could leave hospital, but `Dr John’ took the youngster and his parents to his own private room. `He rubbed cream into the boy’s back while his parents were waiting in an adjoining room,’ Mr Davis said. `Nothing untoward happened.’

The day after, however, Narendran contacted the parents, who took their son back. While they waited next door as before, he showed the boy a medical book with pictures of male and female genitalia.

The boy was asked to lie on the bed, blindfolded with a scarf and assaulted. He was upset and told his parents, and Narendran was arrested.

The boy broke down in tears several times while giving evidence through a video-link to court. He told the jury: `The doctor told me I could trust him and he would never hurt me.’

Narendran, a married man, of North Road, Alfriston, East Sussex, had denied indecent assault.

Andrew Cohen, defending, said the offence was `entirely out of character and can only be described as a moment of complete madness’. He said Narendran was a `very highly regarded’ man of `mature years’ who had fallen `as low as he can get’.

STOKE MANDEVILLE – DR ROGER BODLEYFor 25 years until 2009, he was the senior radiologist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital

The Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust is primarily based in the Leeds area, although not all of its trustees – listed as Luke Lucas, Dr Roger Bodley and Lady Gabrielle Greenbury on the Charity Commission’s website – still live there.

Roger Bodley, 65, is one of only three trustees of the charity. He bought a broad sword and ceremonial shield for a new charitable venture at Sir Jimmy’s Scottish cottage.A charity bought a sword and shield (left) for £700 to decorate a Scottish retreat for the disabled

He said: ‘We are hoping to put these items on the wall at his Glencoe cottage which we are going to convert into a kind of retreat for disabled people. It will be called Jimmy’s at Glencoe.’


About Dr Roger Nicholas Bodley of Stoke Mandeville
Image result for dr roger bodley

linklink

Dr Roger Nicholas Bodley was born in 1947 and the first directorship we have on file was in 1991 at Stoke Mandeville Hospital Education Centre Limited. Them most recent directorship was with Stoke Mandeville Hospital Education Centre Limited where they held the position of “Radiologist”. This company has been around since 12 Apr 1972 .

RBodley
Dr. Roger Bodley is an English medical graduate who came to Tasmania in 1976 and worked there for 6 years before returning to train as a radiologist. Worked in Oxford and Stoke Mandeville Hospital (which includes the National Spinal Injuries Centre, home of The Paralympics) and after retirement from the NHS returned part time to the beautiful NW Coast of Tasmania to work, teach and to build a home on Table Cape. Having come across Hempcrete at the London exhibition “Ecobuild” in 2008 I decided that my house was to be a showcase for this exciting material. The last few years have seen the slow realisation of that idea.

3.21 DC1 and DS6 interviewed Savile on tape under caution at his private office at Stoke Mandeville Hospital on 1st October 2009. Present with Savile was a ‘friend’ who was a trustee of the Jimmy Savile Stoke Mandeville Charitable Trust. It is not clear in what capacity this male was present as there is no indication that Savile required an appropriate adult and he was not acting as a legal representative.

http://www.surrey.police.uk/Portals/…11.01.2013.pdf

The Trustees at that time were

James Collier CB We are lucky to have the experience of this
gentleman. A working life as a very senior civil servant,
starting off in the Treasury, worked for eleven Chancellors
before being transferred to the NHS as a financial trouble
shooter.

Luke Lucas A self-made millionaire in the security industry
with several confidential contracts with the Home Office. The
youngest of the Trustees, spends regular days and nights at the
NSIC ( National Spinal Injuries Centre) and is totally dedicated to its work. Hoping to retire from
business and looking forward to staying completely involved
with the Trust.

Broadmoor:  It included a GP, a forensic psychiatrist, a local architect and, in his words, ‘a multi-millionaire owner of a security company’. 

The latter is how Savile always described Luke Lucas, although Lucas maintains he was ‘not a member of Broadmoor Hospital Management’.

His relationship with the royals, and particularly Prince Charles and Princess Diana, became deeper and more intimate during the time he was seconded by the government to fix the mess at Broadmoor.

The thing about me is I get things done. They tippled that I can get things done, and that I work “deep cover” … People don’t realise I’m deep cover until it’s too late.’

But it was not only marriage guidance that Jimmy Savile was sought out for. He also advised Prince Charles on key appointments to his staff.

After consultation with Savile and Richard Aylard, Major-General Sir Christopher Airy was appointed private secretary and treasurer to the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Janet Cope confirmed to me that Prince Charles used to phone Savile regularly at Stoke Mandeville. All three sent telegrams of congratulation when Jimmy Savile’s name finally made it onto the Queen’s birthday honours list in the late summer of 1990, as did Prince Andrew. The Duchess of York sent a homemade card while Angus Ogilvy sent his warmest wishes in a handwritten letter. It was the last list that Margaret Thatcher made recommendations for before she was forced to resign. And it was her letter that informed Jimmy Savile that they had succeeded in getting him the knighthood they both desired.

He took as his guest Clifford Graham, the man who had rubber stamped his appointment to the Broadmoor Hospital task force.

(July 2006) ‘Charity chair was arrested twice over rape allegations’

Charity chair was arrested twice over rape allegations

EXCLUSIVE BY JOHN PRING

A high-profile figure in the disability world, who has been arrested twice over unconnected rape allegations, one of which involved a child with learning difficulties, is continuing to chair a Christian learning difficulties charity, DN can reveal.

L’Arche, which has Catholic roots but now describes itself as an “ecumenical” organisation providing residential “communities” for people with learning difficulties, told DN it “continues to have full confidence” in its UK chairman, Brian McGinnis, despite the two separate arrests by different police forces.

Mr McGinnis, a former special advisor for the charity Mencap, who is also believed to have been a senior civil servant in the Department of Health, has worked with people with learning difficulties for 40 years.

He was arrested last August over allegations that he raped a child with learning difficulties at the Betts Way respite home in Bromley, Kent, in the mid-1990s.

A Metropolitan police spokeswoman confirmed that an allegation of rape of a child with learning difficulties was made to police in November 2004.

She added: “A 68-year-old man from the Croydon area was arrested on 5 August 2005. He was bailed to return pending further investigation. Following Crown Prosecution Service advice, the man was released without charge on 25 October 2005.”

She said police “liaised” with the church and social services about the ongoing contact Mr McGinnis might have with children and vulnerable adults.

Betts Way was at the centre of a series of inquiries after 11 parents were told in 1999 that their children had made allegations of sexual abuse by staff. None of those allegations concerned Mr McGinnis, who had been a volunteer visitor at the home, which closed in 2000.

An investigation by police, the London Borough of Bromley and health authorities took place between 1999 and 2001, but no-one was charged.

DN has discovered that Mr McGinnis was also arrested and questioned in 2001 on allegations unrelated to Betts Way, when he was still employed as Mencap’s special advisor.

A Kent police spokeswoman said: “A 63-year-old man from the Croydon area was arrested on suspicion of rape in March 2001. He was later released without charge.”

Mr McGinnis is an influential figure in the disability world, with links to a string of charities, learning difficulty organisations and his local church in Shirley, Croydon, south London. As well as chairing L’Arche, he is on the ruling national council of the Association for Real Change (ARC), which represents providers of care homes for people with learning difficulties.

John Peet, general secretary of L’Arche, said the charity was aware of both arrests and trustees “continue to have full confidence in Brian McGinnis as chairman”. He said the results of a Criminal Records Bureau check requested by Mr McGinnis after his arrest last August showed “no records or listings which would disqualify Mr McGinnis from continuing in his role as chairman”.

Mr Peet said: “Mr McGinnis informed L’Arche immediately after the police spoke to him, and took the initiative to withdraw from any activities involving contact with members of L’Arche with learning disabilities.

“We have not informed ARC that Mr McGinnis was arrested and questioned by police last August.

There is no obligation for L’Arche or any other member organisation to inform ARC of an allegation regarding its trustees or, indeed, care staff.

“However, if any charges had been brought we should have felt duty bound to draw the matter to the attention of the chief executive of ARC.”

He said Mr McGinnis did not work directly with children or vulnerable adults in his role as chairman.

James Churchill, chief executive of ARC, declined to comment until he had made further enquiries.

Mr McGinnis also represents L’Arche on the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ patients and carers committee.

A college spokeswoman said: “We were not aware of the allegations so obviously we will be looking at the membership of our committee.”

A spokesman for Bromley council said it had advised its staff to “disassociate” Mr McGinnis “with anything related to children with learning difficulties and council services” and informed him of this decision by letter four years ago.

He added: “To the best of our knowledge he hasn’t a connection with Bromley any longer.”

A spokeswoman for Croydon Council said it told church authorities that Mr McGinnis “should be suspended from duties that involved him working with children”, after being told by Bromley council about last August’s arrest. Mr McGinnis had been working with a children’s church group.

A spokeswoman for the Diocese of Southwark, which covers St George’s – the church Mr McGinnis attends in Shirley – said it agreed that he “should have no direct contact with children or vulnerable adults and this policy has been followed”.

Mencap says Mr McGinnis retired in 2003, “for reasons unrelated to the allegations”.

DN contacted Mr McGinnis for a comment on the allegations he faced. In a message left on our answerphone he said: “I am not going to get in discussions over details. I haven’t done any of the things which have been alleged but I do want to say this: I have spent a lifetime arguing for the protection of vulnerable adults and children, even at the expense of innocent folk working with them being damaged, and I am not one to grumble if that befalls me. I am, and all my life have been, and always will be, a celibate. And sex of any kind with anyone, of any age, simply does not enter into my curriculum. But, as I say, the protection of vulnerable adults and children requires sometimes innocent people suffer and that is a price worth paying for the protection of vulnerable children and adults.”

There were mysterious scandals involving child pornography in both Broadmoor and Ashworth during the 1990s and subsequent impenetrable reports published with heavy anonymisation online – it seems now that this would be to do with the staff rather than the patients.

Major had been a junior Health Minister in Thatcher’s Gov’t when the barrel of shit in north Wales was being concealed by Ken Clarke (see post ‘Running The Country – And All That Jazz’). Major had worked in the DHSS as a Minister whilst Trumpers was a Health Minister, when Trumpers appointed Jimmy Savile to the management team of Broadmoor – although it was actually Trumpers’s colleague Edwina Currie who took the rap for it years later. Savile’s mate Alan Franey, the former Assistant General Manager of Leeds General Infirmary, was appointed CEO of Broadmoor. Whilst Savile was in post, two female patients killed themselves as a result of his abuse of them. During Major’s time at the DHSS, Brian McGinnis was the Whitehall mandarin responsible for mental health and high security hospitals – McGinnis was later banned from working with children (see post ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’).

http://www.drsallybaker.com/tag/brian-mcginnis/

Allegations against Savile include sexual assaults of patients at Broadmoor, where he was initially an “honorary entertainments officer”.

Brian McGinnis ran the mental health division of the Department of Health and Social Services in 1987, when plans were drawn up to appoint Savile to run a taskforce overseeing the hospital.

Health service sources said they understood Mr McGinnis was “instrumental” in the creation of the taskforce, which began work the following year.

He was under-secretary for mental health with responsibility for the high-security hospitals when Savile and other members of the group were recruited.

In a book about psychiatric care, Alan Franey, an NHS administrator who was appointed to the same taskforce describes being issued with the invitation in 1987 – during “an unusual meeting in the Athenanaeum Club in London with some officials who shall remain nameless.”

He neglected to mention that Savile was present, although he confirmed it when contacted by The Sunday Telegraph, but refused to say whether Mr McGinnis was among the officials.

Mr McGinnis, now 74, was prevented from working with children by Croydon Council in 2005, when he was stopped from running a children’s church group.

Three years earlier Bromley Council ended his involvement with services for children with learning difficulties.

The interventions followed police investigations into his conduct during volunteer visits to children’s homes.

Contacted by The Sunday Telegraph, Mr McGinnis said that he was very closely involved in discussions about the running of Broadmoor but could not recall his part in Savile’s appointment.

He said: “Ministers made the decisions obviously because that is what they are there for. I am not saying I wasn’t involved but I simply don’t remember a single thing about this appointment.”

Mr McGinnis said he had never been to the Athenaeum and only recalled meeting Savile once at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

With regard to his own conduct, the former civil servant said he had done “absolutely nothing wrong”.

Letter: Abuse: now we must learn the lessons

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/letter-abuse-now-we-must-learn-the-lessons-1262401.html

 

Mr McGinnis is very active at his local curch’s Sunday School, which lists his address as 31 Woodmere Ave and his number as 020 8654 6190. Interestingly, McGinnis was a “volunteer visitor” at a disability centre where 11 parents made seperate allegations that their children were abused in the late 90s. I wonder why someone who is so prominent in so many charities felt the need to maintain a “hands on” approach to volunteering? I’m sure that we have nothing to worry about – as he says above, he is “a celibate” and “sex of any kind with anyone, of any age, simply does not enter into my curriculum”. This bizarre statement will surely calm the fears of the parents whose children attend his Sunday School sessions.

Council ‘ignored three warnings’ over former Mencap advisor

A local authority appears to have ignored three warnings that a former Mencap advisor – who has previously been arrested over two unconnected rape allegations – is being allowed to spend time with disabled service-users with high support needs.

Brian McGinnis has been arrested twice, one in connection with allegations that he raped AX, a child with learning difficulties who used the notorious Betts Way respite home in Bromley, Kent, in the mid-1990s.

McGinnis, who became a special advisor to Mencap after leaving a senior position in the civil service, has never been convicted of any offence, or even charged.

But Disability News Service (DNS) has learned that Mr and Mrs X – AX’s parents – have told Bromley council three times in the last three years that McGinnis appears to be continuing to secure access to people with learning difficulties and high support needs.

One of these disabled people was mentioned several times in a confidential report prepared for the council’s director of social services in 1997.

That report discussed McGinnis’s close attachment to the woman, who was a child at the time but is now in her 30s and has “a very high level of disability… does not verbally communicate her wishes and feelings”, and is “totally dependent on others for physical care”.

The report described how staff felt that McGinnis “was too familiar with her – often sitting her on his lap and other actions, which seemed inappropriate for a man of his age with a young girl”, and how he was “too willing to pick [her]up and touch her”.

Mrs X told DNS that they had twice seen McGinnis with the woman, at a restaurant and at a garden centre, on both occasions accompanied by a care worker. Her husband also saw McGinnis with another person with learning difficulties at a local hospital.

Mrs X said: “I was shaking when I saw him at the restaurant. I wanted to tear his eyes out.

“His steely cold eyes looked at me and he said, ‘How are you?’ I couldn’t believe it; the man who raped my daughter.”

Mr X added: “How on earth can a man like this still have access to people with learning disabilities? How much more information does Bromley council need to stop this happening?”

The arrests came in March 2001 and August 2005 and both resulted in McGinnis, who is now 76 and lives in Shirley, Croydon, being released without charge.

Until the allegations about his behaviour were publicised in 2006, he was an influential figure in the disability world, with links to a string of charities, learning difficulty organisations and his local church in Shirley.

He retired from his position as a special advisor with Mencap in 2003, and the learning difficulties charity previously claimed that this was unconnected with any of the rape allegations.

But this week, DNS learned that a leading crossbench peer visited Mencap chief executive Jo Williams – now no longer with the organisation – to warn her about some of the allegations concerning McGinnis, after the peer had been approached by the chair and chief executive of the charity Voice UK.

McGinnis is believed to have retired from Mencap shortly after that meeting in 2003, but the charity has always insisted that his retirement was unconnected with any rape allegations.

A Mencap spokeswoman said: “We take all allegations of abuse and our reporting responsibilities extremely seriously.

“Mr McGinnis retired in 2003 and there is nothing in our records which indicates that these allegations were known about at that time by Mencap.

“We have zero tolerance in respect to abuse and ensure that all allegations are referred to the proper authorities.”

But Mencap refused to tell DNS whether it has asked Williams about the meeting with the peer.

Following McGinnis’s first arrest in 2001, Bromley council advised its staff to “disassociate” McGinnis “with anything related to children with learning difficulties and council services”.

Croydon council later told church authorities that McGinnis “should be suspended from duties that involved him working with children”, after being informed by Bromley council about the 2005 arrest. He had at the time been working with a children’s church group.

A Bromley council spokeswoman told DNS this week: “We cannot comment on individual situations.

“However, if anyone has specific concerns about a vulnerable adult in Bromley  borough, we would always urge them to contact our adult safeguarding team.”

Meanwhile, the Department of Health (DH) has confirmed that it is investigating whether McGinnis may have helped to block tougher laws on the sexual abuse of people with learning difficulties in the 1980s.

DNS asked DH last month to look into concerns that McGinnis played a key role in dismissing calls in the mid-1980s for a review of the law on sexuality and people with learning difficulties and mental health conditions.

The year before McGinnis left his senior position at the Department of Health and Social Security (DHSS), MPs on the Commons social services committee had called for an “independent expert review of law and practice on sexuality and contraception in relation to mentally disabled people”.

But DHSS dismissed the idea, warning that “a major review might simply attract unwelcome, unhealthy and wholly disproportionate media interest without achieving any helpful consensus”.

The review never took place, and law reform that would make it easier to secure convictions for rape and indecent assault of people with learning difficulties and mental health conditions was delayed until 2003, when a new act introduced fresh offences and tougher sentences.

This week, a DH spokeswoman told DNS: “We are taking this issue very seriously and investigating whether there is any relevant material held on file.”

If it emerged that McGinnis did play a role in blocking tougher legislation, DH could find itself sucked into the scandal that has surrounded the Home Office over the whereabouts of the child abuse dossier handed by the Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens to home secretary Leon Brittan in the early 1980s.

The DH spokeswoman added: “The Home Office is in the process of appointing a new chair for its wider inquiry.

“When the chair is appointed, the terms of reference for that inquiry will be decided and the department will co-operate fully with it.”

McGinnis was also named in June in a report into the activities of the disgraced TV presenter Jimmy Savile at Broadmoor hospital, as he was the senior civil servant in charge of mental health in DHSS in 1986, shortly before Savile was appointed to a new board to run the hospital.

McGinnis refused to speak to DNS today (Thursday), but he has always claimed that he is innocent of both rape allegations and that he is a lifelong “celibate”.

Luke Lucas:

Luke Lucas, a trustee of both Jimmy Savile’s charitable trusts. He had known Savile for 42 years, worked for him full-time for the first seven years and described him as his ‘best friend’, although he refused point blank to talk about him. ‘I was involved in everything, believe me, and if I wanted to tell the 42 years of stories it would need to be a very thick book,’ he said. ‘Thicker than the Old Testament.’

Five weeks before he died, Savile had gone on a cruise on the Queen Elizabeth for its maiden voyage around Britain. Luke Lucas, Savile’s long-time friend, colleague and a trustee of both the charities that bore his name, accompanied him.

Savile told me that Lucas had been sleeping rough under Bournemouth pier when he walked into the Maison Royale nightclub and asked for a job, something that Lucas insists is not true.

On that morning in central London Lucas explained he began working for Savile in Bournemouth and never stopped. He was a trustee of both Savile’s charitable trusts and clearly a member of one of Savile’s teams, the small groups of people he could call on in the places he variously called home.

Image result for BOUrnemouth the Maison Royale

I decided to ask Lucas about how Savile had been handed the reins of the Maison Royale. Savile had told me that the owners had called him out of the blue and made an offer he ‘could not refuse’.

Three years later, when his consultancy deal came to an end, he claimed to have spectacularly transformed the fortunes of the failing venture. It was not exactly how Lucas remembered it, though.

Image result for John Yates was found dead in a swimming pool in 1972 the Maison Royale

Instead, he shook his head and commented what a sad story it was: the owner of the Maison Royale being found dead in his swimming pool a couple of weeks after Jimmy took over. I began to wonder whether perhaps the great secret lurking behind the impenetrable façade of Jimmy Savile was that he had been responsible for a death, or worse still, he had killed someone himself. The way he talked about the summary justice meted out to those who caused trouble in his dancehalls, of his pride in having former Sonderkommandos under his command, and now the troubling image of a body in a swimming pool all contributed to the darkening cloud of doubt in my mind.

Some time later I asked Savile about what Lucas had said. He didn’t blink: ‘He fell on his sword, poor bastard.’

He quickly changed the subject, insisting that Luke Lucas was one of the few people who listened to his advice and acted on it. ‘Now he’s a multi-millionaire and head of one of the biggest security firms in the country,’ said Savile, looking smug.

In Plain Sight: the Life and Lies of Jimmy Savile Dan Davies

After Mr Davies appeared at a book event in Edinburgh, a local newspaper – – as reported by the Echo – said he believed Savile could have been behind Mr Yates’ death.

http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/13636110.Why_John_Yates__death_made_author_question__quot_darkness_quot__at_heart_of_Jimmy_Savile/


John Yates, tragically, was found dead in a swimming pool in 1972 but the Maison Royale carried on and by the May, Cherries chairman Harold Walker was also chairman of the Maison Royale group.

And he came up with a new signing, recruiting one of Britain’s top DJs, Jimmy Savile.

His job? Entertainments and promotion consultant and he arrived at Le Cardinal in person in the May of that year.

Jimmy had a flat on Bournemouth’s East Cliff ND spent five years as consultant, pepping up the pace at the night club and featuring in some lively press stories.

Savile bought the flat on Bournemouth’s East Cliff and moved in during April 1972.

He kept the flat and visited occasionally and it was reportedly sold for charity when he died in 2011, aged 84.

He worked as a public relations consultant for the Maison Royale/Le Cardinal nightlclub complex on Glen Fern Road from 1973 until 1978.

A year after he joined, Jimmy was appalled to discover that the management had bought a nude painting of Princess Anne riding on a horse along a beach for the club foyer.

He demanded that it be taken down.

the club was attracting throngs of people and big-name stars.

The list of other celebrities appearing at the Maison Royale complex over the years reads like a 1960s and ’70s roll call.

They included Roy Castle, Rod Hull, Cliff Richard (who came to speak about his faith), The Bachelors, Vera Lynn, Helen Shapiro, Leslie Crowther, Frankie Howerd, Kathy Kirby, Billy Dainty, Joe Henderson, Stan Stennett, Matt Munro and even “Amarillo” singer Tony Christie.

Girls as young as 12 or 13 well under the minimum age of 16 had attended the Maison Royale discos and consumed alcohol, police said, adding that more than 40 officers were required to deal with the thousands of people leaving the discos.

A midnight curfew was imposed.

It was the last straw.

By August 1983 the Echo front page broke the news that Maison Royale was closing.

Its boss blamed the midnight curfew and said that, despite other clubs operating in the town centre, his complex always seemed to be the scapegoat for trouble in the town streets.

Since Jimmy Savile’s death, I have tried to get Luke Lucas to elaborate on his relationship with Savile but he has consistently refused to comment about his friend. ‘I did not discuss Jim at the height of his popularity,’ he says, ‘and nor will I now.’

In Plain Sight: the Life and Lies of Jimmy Savile by Dan Davies

Savile befriended Julie Ferguson  ^, one of the “waitresses”  (H) when she was 15 yrs old.  She was one of the few people named in his will.

She wrote the poems on Jimmy Savile’s headstone, recalled first encountering Savile when he climbed Ben Nevis to test a tent in Arctic conditions. She and a friend were invited back to his hotel.

Jimmy Savile  His last will and testament, dated July 2006, put the gross value of his estate at £4,366,178, of which around £3.6 million was earmarked for charity. It was a story that got unanimously positive coverage.

The rest was to be shared out among his family and friends. Eight people, including two couples, were to benefit from the annual interest on a £600,000 trust fund.

They included Savile’s nephew Roger Foster and niece Amanda McKenna; Sylvia Nicol, a member of his original fund-raising team at Stoke Mandeville Hospital; Mavis Price, who got to know him through Leeds General Infirmary and went on to manage the Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust; Donald Bennett, the former transport manager at Broadmoor Hospital, and his wife Josie; and

Roddy and Julie Ferguson , the latter being someone Savile had befriended in Fort William in 1969 when she was 15.

2014

JULIE Ferguson has had a 30-year relationship with the Hebridean island of North Uist, which is where her sea captain husband Roddy was born, but she thought long and hard about actually moving to live there. Julie works for a specialist recruitment company, which she can do from anywhere in the world, and while living in Oban also ran a B&B.

How’s about that then? Sir Jimmy Savile’s friends fix him a headstone to remember

The words were written by Julie Ferguson, described as a good friend of Savile.  The headstone overlooks the scchool Harvey Proctor attended,

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2206085/Sir-Jimmy-Saviles-friends-fix-headstone-remember-complete-unexpected-gaffe.html

The man was not at all liked by folks in the Glencoe and Lochaber area. Mind you, his housekeeper, Julie Ferguson from Oban, thought him wonderful…

https://ianbone.wordpress.com/2012/10/25/cops-raid-remote-glencoe-cottage-where-savile-entertained-prince-charles/

Savile then went on to tell me a little about the time in 1999 when Prince Charles came for lunch at the three-bedroomed cottage he’d recently bought near Glencoe.

When Savile learned the Prince of Wales was to visit the area and present a minibus to a mountain rescue team, he issued his invitation. His friend, Julie Ferguson, was asked to source local salmon, lamb and a bottle of Laphroaig whisky, which he knew the prince liked.

Special Branch arrived ahead of the prince to conduct a sweep of the building, before Jimmy Savile greeted his special guest. He was wearing a kilt of Lochaber tartan, a green military-style shirt and his Royal Marines Green Beret. Ferguson and two friends acted as waitresses, each in monogrammed aprons bearing the letters ‘H’, ‘R’ and ‘H’ respectively – a special touch Savile was especially pleased with.

They served Savile and his guest the lamb and the salmon, which, Ferguson later revealed, had been obtained from a local poacher.

From the Daily Record:
The allegations were also rubbished by a Scottish pal and confidante of Sir Jimmy. Julie Ferguson met him as a teenager in Fort William in 1969 and became friends with him. She said: “This is shocking and cowardly and they wouldn’t have dared to do it if he were still alive. I met Jimmy in a group of six teenagers and he never behaved inappropriately towards any of us. If anything untoward had gone on, the Press would have published it years ago.”


Savile was born in 1926 – so would have been 42-43 when he met her …. strange to befriend a group of teenage girls and stay in contact with (at least) one of them – “with whom he often used to stay in the Hebrides” – without her suspecting anything.

In Savile’s will:

Donald Bennett, the former transport manager at Broadmoor Hospital

Truthseeker1‏ @thewakeupcall09:

True gent Sir Jimmy was ‘a real friend’ Sir Jimmy Savile with Don Bennett

A Crowthorne man who counts himself as one of Sir Jimmy Savile’s closest friends has revealed his memories of the eccentric marathon-running DJ and presenter.

Don Bennett from Napier Road was the man tasked with driving Sir Jimmy around in his various extravagant cars.

The pair met when Mr Bennett was a transport manager at Broadmoor Hospital, of which Mr Savile was a keen supporter, and became lifelong friends.

Mr Bennett, 79, knew Sir Jimmy, who died last week at the age of 84, for 44 years and joined him in many of his hundreds of charity fundraisers.

He described him as a “true gentleman” who was not like his TV persona. He said: “I drove his famous Gold Rolls Royce – in fact, we had 12 Rolls Royces in total. That wasn’t just it, we had Bentleys, Lamborginis, you name it. It was a bit of a disappointment getting back in your own car at the end of the day when Jim was around.” He said Sir Jimmy was a very caring individual who went out of his way to ensure his friends were never left out.

He said: “Jim was tremendous at making sure everyone was involved. I remember we went to Windsor Castle once to meet Prince Charles. He insisted I came in and met him too.

“He was very different when it was just you and him – he was actually quite quiet and thoughtful. But he was in his TV persona most of the time. He wasn’t all razzmatazz.”

Don both walked and cycled from Lands End to John O’Groats with the famously exercise-mad star – but stayed well away from his other ventures.

He said: “He was a wrestler for a while, I think he got hurt quite a lot doing that. And he did so many marathons.

“He always smoked cigars, but I don’t think he inhaled much – he was very fit. He was just really likeable, and always had time for you.” Don, who worked at the hospital for 43 years, is still driving and travelled up to Scarborough in Yorkshire for his friend’s funeral.

Sir Jimmy was buried in a gold-coloured, steel plated coffin.

Showing his commitment to charity to the last, he was laid to rest wearing a Help for Heroes wristband.

He and his wife (Dr Palmer), joined the Wynyard GP practice as trainees and then associates.

It was a discussion with radiologist Paul Huang about a patient led to a curiosity about interventional radiology and his subsequent return to Radiology training in Oxford in 1981. For 25 years until 2009, he was the senior radiologist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, an acute hospital for 500,000 population as well as the home of The National Spinal Injuries Centre.

His special interests include spinal and interventional radiology.

MISC:

A younger Salmon had focussed on a career in medicine, first coming to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, the site of many of the allegations made against him, in 1961, for a paediatric secondment, lasting six months. His medical career had then taken him to hospitals in Middlesex, London, and Ibadan, Nigeria, before he had taken up a senior registrar position in Lincoln, Lincolnshire. Salmon worked as a locum consultant in Maidestone, Gravesend and Dartford, before being headhunted for a top position in developmental medicine in Oxford.


 

In 1969 the doctor, now specialising in children’s growth disorders and neurological problems, such as migraines, returned to Stoke Mandeville where serial pervert Savile targeted patients for sex attacks during his time as a fundraiser there.

Salmon’s son had appeared on Savile’s Jim’ll Fix it programme.

One of his patients and alleged victims recalled seeing a picture from Jim’ll Fix It hanging on Salmon’s consulting room wall. The black and white photograph, shown to the jury, showed a young boy holding a microphone from when Salmon’s eldest son Martin had appeared on the popular television show alongside Irish horse racing commentator Peter O’Sullivan.

My eldest son contacted the BBC and said he would like to go on Jim’ll Fix It,” Salmon explained. “Martin was a bit of a celebrity when he appeared on it.” Salmon’s son, the eldest of two, changed his surname, moved out of the family home and cut ties with his father following his previous conviction for child sex assaults. In 1969 Salmon had set up the developmental assessment unit at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital, only the fourth such unit in the country at the time. He was also instrumental in the building of a special care baby unit at the hospital and helped to raise between £50,000 and £70,000 for much needed equipment for the hospital’s paediatric unit.

Salmon worked at Stoke Mandeville until the late 1980s, when he was convicted for sexually abusing youngsters and subsequently jailed in 1990.

Before this, his special interest and work in the field of migraine led to him being appointed as a consultant paediatrician of the British Migraine Association in London, and he was the first doctor in the country to run trials of a pioneering preventative medicine.

Salmon authored 38 scientific papers and a text book used by doctors, chaired the World Paediatric Congress held in 1986 and served on a number of professional bodies, including the Royal College of Physicians.

Shortly before his first arrest, Salmon was hailed by Princess Diana for taking 300 ill and disabled children to Disney World in Florida.

dreamflight-auto-bio-history-salmon

He was asked to join the inaugural Dreamflight charity trip, co-founded by former British Airways cabin crew member Patricia Pearce in 1987, as chief medical officer. The former doctor said he was phoned by British Airways and asked to pick 300 ‘very sick and handicapped’ children who would benefit from the once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Princess Diana waved the flight off from Heathrow Airport, with 298 young children aboard, including one of the girls who later claimed Salmon indecently touched her during a medical appointment. The former doctor said she had been suffering from depression after a bout of glandular fever and he thought the trip would lift her spirits.

“He arranged a special trip to Disney World.Bruce Bailey was the best five days of my life, I will never forget it.” The charity has since taken more than 5,000 children abroad on its holidays.

On release from prison, Salmon lived at Woodgreen in the New Forest area of Hampshire with his wife Susie, pursuing his interests in butterflies and photography. More recently the couple set up home in Park Lane, Salisbury, before he was once more charged with sexually abusing youngsters. His wife has stood by him, supporting him each day in court during his five-week trial.

Salmon was congratulated by Princess Diana for his work on a Dreamflight charity trip, which took 300 ill children to Disney World in Florida.

Dreamflight is a registered UK charity that changes young lives through taking seriously ill and disabled children, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida. The first Dreamflight trip was in November 1987


Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways. Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take &underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

link

Pereira had just helped organise a one-hour flight to give children the chance to experience a plane trip and thought that he could do something much more exciting.

At a party for the participants he announced that he wanted to take a plane of children to Florida the following year.

The following morning he received offers of support, which led to the start of a mission that gives hundreds of children the chance to fly to Florida, US, and visit Disneyworld, Seaworld, and other places every year.

Determined to make Dreamflight a reality, Mr Pereira approached the then airline chief medical officer who agreed to pass the information on to the BA chairman Sir Colin Marshall, who turned down the idea.

Mr Pereira promised to do the flight with no cost to the airline by raising money.

Sir Colin gave him the go-ahead but there were still major obstacles to overcome, such as finding money for the flight’s tariff of $100,000 (BD37,800).

However, a British Post Office party brought in $2,000 (BD756), followed by a donation of $10,000 (BD3,780) from an investment company and that was the start.

Children chosen for the trip were sick, but they had to be fit enough to travel.

Although Dreamflight was supposed to be a one-off event there was so much support for it that it continued on an annual basis and was registered as a charity, with Mr Pereira as a trustee.

 Stoke Mandeville Hospital Our history

The National Spinal Injuries Centre (NSIC) is the oldest, and one of the largest  spinal injuries centres in the world. It was founded by neurologist Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, in 1944 to treat servicemen who had sustained spinal cord injuries in World War II.

Ludwig Guttmann

Before this, the majority of people with spinal cord injury died from complications within a year of injury. In 1948, Professor Guttmann began using sport as a vital ingredient in rehabilitation programmes and on 29 July organised a competition for 16 paralysed men and women to coincide with the opening ceremony of the 1948 Olympic Games in London.

The Stoke Mandeville Games for wheelchair athletes began and was widely seen as the moment that the Paralympic movement was born.

Professor Guttman received a knighthood in recognition of his contribution to the Paralympics and the ground-breaking techniques in rehabilitation he introduced, and staff continue Dr Guttmann’s revolutionary work to this day.

The experience gained in treating and preventing complications, together with an increase in injuries caused by road traffic accidents, led to a rapid expansion of the centre from an initial 26 beds to 190 beds in the main part of the hospital.

Jimmy opening unit

In 1980, severe weather conditions caused structural damage to some of the wards at Stoke Mandeville which housed the centre. With the area health authority unable to meet the estimated repair bill, the centre’s future looked in doubt. The implications would have been inconceivable – patients faced the prospect of receiving care in non-specialist hospitals without the welath of expertise and knowledge built up at the NSIC over the years.

Sir Jimmy Savile, at this time working as a volunteer porter at the hospital, set about organising an ambitious fundraising campaign to create a purpose built spinal cord injuries centre. Within three years of the launch, and with the generosity of the public behind him, Sir Jimmy had raised an incredible £10m. The new facilities opened in 1983, and Sir Jimmy, now the NSIC’s patron, continues to take an active interest in the centre.

Cockpit fight: Bill Hagan tackled a crazed student trying to crash a BA flight

 

Kenyan Paul Mukony, Mukonyi, who is studying tourism at university in Lyon, felt completely crowded and he said people in front and behind were threatening him. He ran toward the front of the airplane believing people were in hot pursuit of him.

“All he remembers is somebody hit him on the back and somebody put a finger in his eye. When he came to, he was so frightened,” said Dr. Dan Gikonyo, another consulting physician.

“To him, he was the one who was in danger.”

Since November, Mukonyi believed he was being followed and spied on in France, where he’s studied tourism since September 1999.

Mukonyi kept a diary of his fears, and on three occasions reported his concerns to French police. But cops said they couldn’t help because there was no proof he was being followed.

As his fears increased, he felt it was imperative he escape to Kenya, the doctors said.

http://nypost.com/2001/01/02/747-madman-had-threat-delusion/

The incident led directly to the locking of aircraft cockpit doors in UK Airlines in late 2001. Even if the awful events of September 11th had not occurred, UK Airlines would have a locked door policy, as a result of what happened on the BA2069 flight.

It is perhaps the most intriguing incident because in spite of the above, there was no CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) enquiry- merely a review of the flight, commenced months after the event, and which was not made public.

Further allegations about what British Airways knew about the alleged crimes of pilot Simon Wood surface in BBC report

20 March 2015

The law firm acting on behalf of alleged child abuse victims of a British Airways pilot, Simon Wood, has confirmed that they are looking into reports that the airline had been told twice about concerns about his behaviour in Kenya.

According to the BBC, Mike Johnson, another BA pilot who was on the British board of Nairobi-based charity, Nyumbani, informed two senior managers at BA in 2004 that Wood had been asked to leave the charity for taking inappropriate images of children.

In 2008 the mother of an 11-year-old girl, who claimed she had been raped at his hotel, sent an email to a member of BA staff involved in charity work in Kenya.

The email reads: “Parents are complaining…that Mr Simon is using their daughters to satisfy his sexual desires”. “…whenever Mr Simon is in Nairobi he takes them to the hotel where he stays”.

However BA appeared to take no action against Wood, allowing him to allegedly abuse children in several African countries.

First Officer Simon Wood, from Hertfordshire, committed suicide in 2013 after he was charged with indecent assault and making and possessing indecent photographs of a child.

It is alleged that Wood molested over 30 children during stopovers in Kenya and Uganda between 2001 and 2013 whilst flying for British Airways.

Nichola Marshall, head of the international abuse team at Leigh Day, who is acting for 35 alleged victims, claims that BA had a duty of care toward the children allegedly abused in the African countries he visited whilst flying for the airline.

She added that these latest allegations could strengthen the legal case against BA.

The alleged victims are currently aged between 6 and 24 years of age, and were allegedly abused in African schools and orphanages over a number of years by Wood.

The allegations range from molestation to rape. Wood was struck by a train near Potters Bar station on August 18 2013. An inquest into his death in July 2014 recorded a verdict of suicide at Hertfordshire Coroner’s Court in July 2014.

Nichola Marshall from the international claims team at Leigh Day said: “We allege that British Airways had a duty of care toward these children in the schools and orphanages, that Wood was involved in through the airline’s charitable work, and through his respected position as a British Airways pilot.

“We are looking into the allegations that BA were told on two occasions that one of their pilots could be a danger to children but continued to allow and even encourage him to volunteer in projects they supported, even giving him awards for his charity work.

“If correct, these reports strengthen our case against British Airways and we want them to tell us exactly what they knew and when they were aware of the activities of Mr Wood and what they did about it.”

Bharti Patel, CEO of ECPAT UK, a child rights charity campaigning for the rights of children everywhere to be protected from abuse by British nationals travelling or residing abroad, today said the apparent lack of action by BA looked like a serious breach.

She commented “If British Airways were informed of Simon Wood’s alleged abuse of children, they had a duty to act with due diligence and intervene to remove Simon Wood from his role and investigate the complaints of abuse against him.

“Any error of judgement in this due diligence process is a serious breach when it comes to protection of children. Child abuse is a serious crime and a violation of children’s rights. It can leave children traumatised for long periods.

“Access to remedy and appropriate compensation is essential to help children begin the process of recovery and rehabilitation.”

BA said it cannot comment while legal proceedings continue, but has released a statement. “We were shocked and horrified to hear the allegations against Simon Wood and our sympathies are with the victims. “These allegations have been raised in the context of litigation which will be robustly defended.”

Paedophile pilot’s victims to get cash payouts from British Airways:

  • British Airways agreed to pay damages to 38 victims of paedophile pilot 
  • First Officer Simon Wood, 54, molested young girls during overseas trips 
  • Mail revealed he groomed victims with BA-branded toys, colouring books
  • Wood was eventually charged with separate child sex offences in the UK

Bartle Frere, ex-BA pilot, jailed for child sex abuse

  • 17 June 2015

A paedophile who carried out child sex crimes during stopovers while working as a British Airways pilot has been jailed for 12 years and six months.

Bartle Frere, of Shipton Gorge, Dorset, was convicted of 16 sex offences, including sexual assault, following a retrial at Bournemouth Crown Court.

Frere was found guilty of arranging the sexual abuse of a child in India at an earlier trial in October 2014.

He was arrested as he got off a flight at Heathrow Airport in November 2013.

A total of 25 charges against the 51-year-old, which also included making indecent images, dated back to 2001.

DVDs and Viagra

The Crown sought a retrial on 16 counts the jury at his first trial failed to reach verdicts on.

During the retrial, the court heard police had searched Frere’s home, near Bridport, the day before his arrest and seized DVDs of underage boys wrestling naked, as well as boy’s underwear and Viagra.

The jury also heard details of Frere’s stopovers in India while he was working for BA.

He befriended youngsters in one fishing village near Chennai, handing out gifts including mobile phones.

The court was also told Frere searched the internet on his phone to find out “where to pick up underage boys in Bangkok”.

‘Terrible crimes’

Frere, who no longer works for BA, told the court he liked to help boys purely to encourage them and see them develop.

After sentencing, Det Sgt Dave Wise, of Dorset Police’s child abuse investigations team, described Frere’s actions as “terrible crimes”.

“Frere targeted vulnerable children to exploit them for his own purpose and we hope that the lengthy sentence brings some closure to them and goes some way to repairing the harm he has caused to his victims and their families.”

He also thanked British Airways for its co-operation.

A spokesman for BA said the firm “took the allegations very seriously and co-operated with the police throughout their investigation”.

Wessex Crown Prosecution Service thanked those who gave evidence.

“Their courage and determination has contributed greatly to the successful prosecution of someone who poses a very significant risk to young boys.”

An official video made by Frere for a leading prep school in the South-East is accompanied by the BA theme tune – Sous le Dome Epais (Flower Duet).

Frere, who was educated at £10,830 a term Westminster School, whose alumni include Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, was arrested

Frere, whose unusual Christian name is a diminutive of Bartholomew, is from a family with an impressive pedigree and history which saw noticeable service in the empire in war and peace.

He is directly related to Sir Henry Bartle Edward Frere (1815 – 1884) who was created a Baronet in 1876 after a long and distinguished career in the Indian Civil Service.

In 1872 he had negotiated the abolition of the slave trade with the Sultan of Zanzibar. In 1877 he was appointed to be the Governor of the Cape Province, South Africa to implement the policy of confederation.

However, his approach in refusing to speak to the native chiefs provoked a war with the Zulu tribes, the first battle of which in 1879 ended in a disastrous defeat for the British army.

Despite eventually winning the trust of the Boer element of the proposed confederation he was recalled to London in 1880 and censured for reckless conduct.

Another wealthy ancestor, George Frere (1774-1854), inherited Twyford House, a Queen Anne mansion in Thorley, near Bishop’s Stortford, in Herts, and was founder and president of the Law Society.

Frere’s sister Sarah Frere, 51, refused to comment at her home in Sheringham, Norfolk.

She said: ‘I am not saying anything. If anything has happened, it will cause immense distress and I am not saying any more.’

The Dreamflight
Quote:
Three hundred terminally ill children experienced the trip of a lifetime last year, thanks to British Airways and the Rotary Club of London, England. Designated “Dreamflight,” the trip was highlighted by a visit to mega-amusement parks Disney World and SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida, U.S.A. While British Airways provided the air transportation, the London club paid the Florida hotel accommodations for all participants, including 70 medical personnel. For the children, it was perhaps a last dream, but one come true.


Bruce Bailey Travelling Fellowship
This Fellowship in Coimbatore, India was established in memory of Mr Bruce Bailey, Plastic Surgeon at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Aylesbury, in recognition of the training that Mr Bailey provided for many Indian plastic surgeons, including Dr S Raja Sabapathy at the Ganga Hospital in Coimbatore. The Ganga Hospital website is hereThe fellowship is for a period of two months, probably best taken at the end of the year in November and December. The Fellowship is designed for surgeons in the middle or late part of their training and is undertaken in a private hospital with orthopaedic, plastic surgical and hand teams, with a large volume of work related to trauma. The unit also does a lot of work on soft tissue cover for lower limb injuries.Included in the fellowship is a one-week laboratory microsurgery course at the hospital and a trip to the Indian Society for Surgery of the Hand meeting or to attend the annual meeting of the Association of Plastic Surgeons of India. The salary for the duration of the fellowship is £750.00 to include food and accommodation…

He was a founder trustee of Headway (the National Head Injuries Association) and was a member of the management committee for almost 20 years. He established Second Chance, a local head injury support group affiliated to Headway, in Wakefield

He was dedicated to his work and as such his early marriages initially to Patience (‘Bunty’) in 1964 and Mavis in 1975 did not survive. He married Janis in 1989. He had two sons, Toby from his first marriage and Jolyon from his third

Savile’s death on the morning of October 29, 2011, was certified by Prof Alistair Hall, his cardiologist, who had been called to his flat by the concerned caretaker and family members.

Professor Alistair Hall, the award-winning Leeds cardiologist and Jimmy’s close friend, was one of the last to see Jimmy alive. He had called at his flat on the Friday night before he died and unsuccessfully tried to persuade him to go into hospital. Jimmy had said that he wanted to die at home in his own bed. He seemed to know the end was nigh.

Professor Alistair Hall, senior consultant cardiologist at Leeds General Infirmary and St James’s Hospital, said: “I am 100 per cent in agreement that the wonderful Sir Jimmy should be made Freeman of the City. “Despite his fame he still volunteers at the hospital and the list of good work and fundraising he has done is too long to list. “He has supported a lot of cardiology research and helped with The Family Heart Study and toured on the big red bus across the UK. He has helped us to fundraise to buy a special scanner and only recently donated a large amount of money to fund scholarships for junior doctors.” The senior cardiologist, who carried out Sir Jimmy’s quadruple heart bypass operation a decade ago, said the broadcaster and sportsman was an amazing person who fully deserved to be honoured publically. Charities Sir Jimmy has raised more than 40m during his lifetime for various charities, including the Leeds Hospitals. He has run 217 marathons and countless fun runs. Catholic Church bosses in Leeds also backed calls for Sir Jimmy to be honoured. A spokesman for the Diocese of Ripon and Leeds, said: “Over the years Sir Jimmy has done lots of good work for the church. As long as the 1960s while busy being famous, he used to help with collections at the former Sacred Heart church. Mavis Price, Sir Jimmy’s friend and one of his helpers, said: “It is high time Jimmy was made a Freeman. I have written to the council before about it. He does so much.”

Jimmy Savile’s close links with police are coming to light

During the interview, Savile, by then aged 82, stressed his social connections with senior officers in his hometown of Leeds, and indicated that he could call in “favours” from them.

There is some evidence that these were not the mere ramblings of an ageing celebrity. The 44-page report – by Surrey Police into its own failed investigation into sexual abuse at a children’s home in Staines – details how an unnamed inspector in West Yorkshire Police had telephoned Surrey on Savile’s behalf to arrange the interview.

It was a brazen breach of police protocol. Here was a suspected sex offender getting a senior officer to broker a meeting with detectives. It enabled Savile to dictate the terms of his interrogation. The meeting took place not at a police station, but in the altogether cosier surroundings of his home-from-home at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, where he also abused patients.

Bruce Bailey Fellowship

Mr. Bruce Bailey, Retired Senior Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, United Kingdom passed away in April 2001. He was responsible for training many Plastic Surgeons from India including Dr S Raja Sabapathy. He opened the windows of opportunities for many young surgeons from our country. In the memory of this great man “Bruce Bailey Traveling Fellowship” was set up by Ganga Hospital. Bruce visited India many times and loved it. It is felt that setting up a Fellowship to enable a British Trainee visit our unit for a period of 6 to 8 weeks is a good way to keep the memory of the great man alive. It surely will build bridges between the two countries to mutual advantage. The Fellowship is recognized and announced in the newsletters of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons and the British Society for Surgery of the Hand for the information of the interested candidates.

TAKING to the water will be plain sailing for disabled youngsters after they received one of Yorkshire’s first specially-adapted dinghies. Sir Jimmy Savile OBE was among the guests of honour at the launch of Holly May, which is the latest addition to the fleet at Otley Sailing Club. The dinghy, paid for with two charity grants, will give wheelchair-bound visitors the freedom to sail alone for the very first time. Disabled sailor Emma Guite, 23, enjoyed the first sail in the state-of-the-art dinghy after choosing the name Holly May in a competition. Watching the historic launch, Sir Jimmy said: “Otley Sailing Club is one of those organisations, not only in Britain but in the world, that’s fantastic.

The dinghy, given to the club’s Sailfree project, was bought with grants from LHF Healthplan and 96.3 Radio Aire and Magic 828’s charity Cash for Kids, which benefits from the YEP’s Toy Appeal.

The Scarborough/Leeds connection

Savile had a very close association with Leeds for all of his life and was associated with the following places in West Yorkshire, at one time or another:

  • His Flat at Roundhay Park.
  • The Leeds General Infirmary where he worked as a voluntary porter from 1966 onwards and abused the patients. He met his close friend Alan Franey who was a member of the management team there and Mr Franey subsequently became a member of the management team at Broadmoor, on Savile’s recommendation.
  • St James Teaching Hospital, where he abused patients
  • Wheatfield Hospice, where he abused  patients
  • Dewsbury Hospital, where he abused  patients
  • High Royds Psychiatric Hospital, where he abused patients
  • The Otley Sailing Club, Scout Group and Cycling Club, as well as other locations there.  He was very closely associated with Otley since running dances there in 1943 and regularly switched on the Christmas lights there as an official guest.

He was a man who thought about abusing children every “waking minute of the day” and so it must be a concern that he may have committed offences at some or all of the above locations. Given the understandable reluctance of some of his victims to come forward, many of his victims and the locations of his crimes will probably remain unknown.

However, one set of offences is very well documented and that is the 1966 Otley Council Ball, where Saville alleged the Chairman of the Council procured six girls to sleep with Savile and a millionaire friend of his.

Savile went on to claim that a Council neighbouring Otley entered into a similar agreement to procure six girls to sleep with Savile in 1967, but which had to be called off because of the Foot and Mouth outbreak.

From the above description, it appears that the girls concerned were under age and probably vulnerable to being enticed by Savile’s media status, popularity and guile.  In this context, Savile was witnessed taking a young girl he obtained from a local carnival to his room by a member of the staff at Broadmoor, and his charity work gave him constant access to these events. So it seems to be a credible allegation supported by witnesses and not denied at the time. Leeds City Council (the successor to Otley Urban Distric Council) commented to Real Whitby:

We’re as shocked and horrified as the rest of the country by the allegations against Jimmy Savile. Previous tributes by the people of Leeds and the city were undertaken in good faith based on what we knew of him at that time. Given the seriousness of the allegations we have removed his name from the civic honours wall of the Civic Hall. Our thoughts are with all those who suffered any form of abuse and continue to suffer distress as a result of his actions.”

The identity of the mystery Chairman of the Council that entered into this despicable arrangement and ferried underage girls around in an official car to spend the night with Britain’s most prolific paedophile has not yet been revealed.  However, concerning the millionaire accomplice, Savile had a very small circle of close friends and so far as we are aware, only two of them – Scarborough businessmen Mr Jimmy Corrigan and Mr Peter Jaconelli – are described as millionaires.

Jaconelli made his money from ice-cream parlours in Scarborough, was elected first Councillor, then Mayor, and died in 1999.

Jimmy Corrigan was “the Leeds-born millionaire regarded as much a part of Scarborough as the donkeys and the rock, died just weeks after discovering he was suffering from cancer in 2000.  The flamboyant showman and ‘slot machine king’ was a teetotal fitness fanatic and running partner of the resort’s other famous Jimmy, Sir Jimmy Savile.”

Given that Jaconelli’s preference was for boys, the inevitable conclusion is that he was not the millionaire in question.

It is clearly incredible that a Council Chairman could procure six young girls to stay the night with two grown men after a dance, ferry them around in an official car and arouse no suspicion.

For some time investigative journalist Neil Wilby has been alleging that paedophile Officers in West Yorkshire Police have been protected from prosecution.

A Police Officer, Inspector Mick Starkey, acted as Savile’s bodyguard and chauffeur, nine retired/serving Officers met with him every Friday for tea, cakes and (according to one member) whisky in his flat at Roundhay Park, Leeds, and a retired Police Officer was present as a ‘minder’ when he was interviewed by a journalist.

Another Police Officer, “Inspector 5”, arranged for Savile to be interviewed by Police at Stoke Mandeville Hospital instead of at a Police station, thereby making it easier for Savile to manipulate the interview.

According to Savile, “blackmail” letters were ripped up by these Officers during these meetings.

If this is so, then it is a very serious act of misconduct. Given the nature of Savile, it appears that these letters may have been making allegations that were in fact valid, in which case the Officers concerned had a duty to investigate the allegations instead of destroying evidence at the request of Savile. Alternatively, if they were false allegations made for the purpose of blackmail, they had a duty to preserve them as evidence and arrest the originators of them.

Apart from Starkey and Wetherby Police Sergeant Matthew Appleyard, we do not know who the other seven Officers were, or which Forces they were from, because both the Chief Constables of West Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Police are refusing to confirm this.

In stark contrast, the British Transport Police have very openly and helpfully confirmed that none of their Officers were involved.

Dream holiday for special children

By REBECCA TORR
FOR the past 10 years Dreamflight Bahrain has annually given two sick Bahraini children the holiday of a lifetime to the UK and US.

The two children chosen are usually from underprivileged backgrounds who would never have the opportunity to enjoy such an experience.

Hassan Ahmed, 13, and Ali Ebrahim, 10, are the latest two to benefit from the British charity Dreamflight’s unique trip.

Nomination

The holiday includes two days in London and 10 days in Florida where they visit Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios, Sea World and other attractions.

Bahraini children are nominated for the trip by doctors at the Salmaniya Medical Complex (SMC) and then a panel of medical experts in the UK narrows them down to two.

The two children chosen from Bahrain join 190 other seriously ill children, aged between eight and 14, from the UK, Chernobyl, Ukraine, and Hong Kong.

“I am so excited to visit these two cities as I have never been there before,” Ali told the GDN prior to travelling.

“I want to try all the rides in Disneyland.”

His partner on the trip Hassan cheerfully revealed he planned to visit every part of Disneyland and watch the many parades there.

“I feel so excited and lucky to be chosen for this trip,” he said.

The Bahraini children are accompanied throughout the trip by an escort and once in the US the 192 children are split into 12 groups of 16 children.

The groups are named after a children’s character and the Bahraini children are usually in the Donald Duck group.

Each group is accompanied by eight escorts, as well as a group leader, paediatric doctor, a senior nurse, two nurses, a physiotherapist and two non-medical helpers.

There are also extra escorts on hand to help. The aim is to have one escort for every child.

To prepare them for the trip the children are given free English lessons from Berlitz Language Centre and taken for shopping to buy new clothes and other items.

Speedy Motors provides free transport to them during preparations for the trip and to the airport and Batelco gives the children mobile phones so they can keep in touch with their families while they are away.

Awesome

The first two children to participate in Dreamflight in 2001 were Fatima Mohammed Hassan and Zainab Rasool Al Awani, who were 13-year-old back then.

“I loved the whole thing, it was awesome,” said Fatima, years after returning from the trip.

“I had a wonderful time in Florida and London.

“I loved the Magic Kingdom the most, the rides were awesome.

“I am back in school and I am telling all my friends about my holiday and they’re very happy for me.”

Fatima proudly announced at the time that she had made a total of 60 friends during her trip.

“Ask me all their names, I know them all by heart,” she said.

“I am writing to them all and I can’t wait to hear from them.”

Dreamflight is a UK-registered charity that was started in 1987 by its two founders, Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, who were both with British Airways.

Mr Pereira had first become involved with the disabled when he volunteered to help at the Stoke Mandeville handicapped games in England in 1983.

It was three years later that the former British Airways flight engineer came up with the idea of the “Dreamflight”, but at the time he thought it could never be more than a fantasy.

He had just helped organise a one-hour flight to give children the chance to experience a plane trip and thought that he could do something much more exciting.

At a party for the participants he announced that he wanted to take a plane of children to Florida the following year.

The following morning he received offers of support, which led to the start of a mission that gives hundreds of children the chance to fly to Florida, US, and visit Disneyworld, Seaworld, and other places every year.

Determined to make Dreamflight a reality, Mr Pereira approached the then airline chief medical officer who agreed to pass the information on to the BA chairman Sir Colin Marshall, who turned down the idea.

Mr Pereira promised to do the flight with no cost to the airline by raising money.

Sir Colin gave him the go-ahead but there were still major obstacles to overcome, such as finding money for the flight’s tariff of $100,000 (BD37,800).

However, a British Post Office party brought in $2,000 (BD756), followed by a donation of $10,000 (BD3,780) from an investment company and that was the start.

Children chosen for the trip were sick, but they had to be fit enough to travel.

Although Dreamflight was supposed to be a one-off event there was so much support for it that it continued on an annual basis and was registered as a charity, with Mr Pereira as a trustee.

The charity is normally only open to sick children from the UK, but Dreamflight was brought to Bahrain 10 years ago by Mr Pereira and his Bahrain-based sister Yvonne Trueman.

It was initially meant to be a one-time arrangement, but with the support of British Airways, the British Embassy and the local community, Bahrain has been able to secure two places a year since then.

“When my brother Derek came to Bahrain in 2000 we discussed how to bring this wonderful opportunity to sick children in Bahrain,” Ms Trueman told the GDN.

“We talked with Jane Bishop who was then country manager at British Airways.

“She and her fellow colleagues formed a team and launched Dreamflight Bahrain.

“The first Bahraini children chosen for Dreamflight were Zainab Rasool and Fatima Mohammed Hasan, who were both aged 13 at the time.

“Since then Bahrain has been fortunate enough to have secured two places each year to join up with the other children in London.

“Bahrain, Hong Kong and Ukraine are only the other countries to have this opportunity.”

Ms Trueman said Dreamflight was a trip of a lifetime for sick children who would not otherwise have the chance of such an experience.

“It’s an opportunity given to a special child, one who has a terminal illness or a condition that could shorten their life,” she said.

“For example children with sickle cell may have a certain life span and this is an opportunity of a lifetime that these children will remember forever.

“A sick child doesn’t know what tomorrow will bring, so this really is a holiday of a lifetime in their lifetime.”

Former GDN reporter Eunice Del Rosario, who was a Dreamflight escort for Bahraini girls Mariam Hassan and Ruqaya Mohammed in 2006, said she felt honoured to accompany the children on the trip that gave them a once in a lifetime opportunity.

She said the Bahraini children who have gone on to enjoy their dream holidays have not only represented Bahrain well, but also the rest of the Arab world.

“They all served as wonderful ambassadors, especially when Dreamflight first accepted Bahraini children into its programme in 2001 – a time when the world was at a very tumultuous time,” she said.

“When I met the first two Bahraini girls who went on the holiday in 2001, the first word they uttered upon their return was ‘awesome’.

“After working with Dreamflight for seven years, I know more than ever that we can all learn a lot from children.

“To them, there is no such thing as the colour of your skin, the language you speak, your medical condition or your handicap. They all are passionate about life.

“I am sure Dreamflight Bahrain will continue its great success and I look forward to volunteering some more here in the US in the near future.

“I am happy that I was part of something that touched the lives of many.”

Dreamflight in Bahrain is co-ordinated by Debbie Beedie and finance co-ordinator Maha Al Abbas.

Ms Al Abbas has been involved since the very beginning and co-ordinates with Salmaniya Medical Complex officials, the parents and children.

She said working with Dreamflight had made her feel very fortunate to have two healthy children, her daughters Layal, 14, and Razan, 11 and had made her really appreciate all that she has.

Confidence

It was also a delight to be able to give happiness to families and put a smile on a sick child’s face, she added.

“All of the families have really been appreciative of Dreamflight and felt that we gave their children a chance they wouldn’t normally have,” said Ms Al Abbas.

“This is because most of them would never have the chance to go on an airplane or visit Europe and the US.

“The furthest most of them would be able to travel is Saudi or Iran and then that would be by bus.”

She said the trip had a very positive impact on the children that participate and they come back more confident and outgoing and it gives them a happy memory to recall when life gets tough for them.

“They come back speaking better English because they are surrounded by English speaking kids,” said Ms Al Abbas.

“The children that are chosen to go on Dreamflight come from very poor backgrounds and just being on the flight is something for them.

“On the trip they have seen children that are sicker than them so they come back making the best out of life and become more helpful to others.”

More than 1,000 registered and licensed doctors have criminal convictions… including possession of indecent images of children, sexual assault and threats to kill

  • Disgraced medics have been allowed to keep their jobs despite criminal offences
  • Figures reveal there are 1,067 registered doctors with criminal convictions
  • This includes Dr Steven Burn, 53, a consultant cardiologist, who was able to keep his job despite being found with 65 child abuse images on his work computer
  • Campaigners reacted furiously and said patients should not be kept in the dark

Steven Burn, 53, a consultant cardiologist, was able to keep his job despite being found with 65 child abuse images on his work computer.

The cardiologist, was arrested after IT staff at the Royal Derby Hospital (pictured) found indecent images of children on his work PC while checking to see if it had been infected by a computer virus

Dr Burn, a heart doctor, was arrested after IT staff at the Royal Derby Hospital found indecent images on his work PC while checking to see if it had been infected by a computer virus.

He was convicted by a court of possessing indecent images.

Some of these pictures featured children alleged to be as young as seven, while Burn had also downloaded Japanese ‘Hentai’ animated pornographic images and made Google searches under the headings ‘bestiality’, ‘little Asian girls’, little Japanese girls’ and ‘beautiful little boys’.

But he managed to avoid being struck off after a disciplinary panel at the MPTS ruled Burn should be allowed to return to medicine following a 12-month suspension.

The panel opted to give him the chance to resume his 28-year-old career after he insisted he would ‘rather die than reoffend’.

Figures obtained by MailOnline reveal three doctors have convictions for possessing or taking indecent photographs of children, while three licensed doctors have committed sexual assault.

In another high-profile case, Dr Rupert Pemsel, 32, a trainee anaesthetist, kept his job despite paying a call girl for sex while on duty at a maternity hospital.

The disgraced married father-of-two was branded ‘sordid’ and ‘abhorrent’ after he admitted meeting prostitute Leanne Davies, 29, while still in his hospital gown or ‘scrubs’.

But at a tribunal in Manchester last March, he escaped with just a ten-month suspension rather than being struck off the medical register. Pemsel’s barrister proposed no action should be taken against his client because he was an ‘excellent doctor’.

The medic, whose wife is a GP, had blamed his behaviour on an addiction to internet pornography and stress from helping sick children in Uganda. 

‘To my mind, someone [like Dr Steven Burn], should never be reinstated. I don’t think any person would want a doctor with that kind of history, even for themselves, let alone their children. It’s appalling. That should be that.

Within medicine, there needs to be more independent bodies with no conflict of interest involved in decisions. They should include members of the public as well as a mix of professions who could come to much better decisions in terms of punishments given.’

Roger Goss of Patient Concern told MailOnline: ‘The government should legally oblige the General Medical Council (GMC) to tell patients if a doctor still practising has been found guilty of any crime that could make some people wish to avoid all contact.’

Burn, who lives with his long term girlfriend, told the panel that he started trawling porn websites to ‘block things out’ after he struggled to obtain funding for the cardiology unit at the hospital.

Respected heart surgeon Dr Ahmed Sayed sacked from Southampton General Hospital after viewing and distributing child abuse images

9  Feb 2018

A RESPECTED heart surgeon who saved the lives of people in Southampton was found with thousands of extreme pornographic images, including hundreds of children.

The career of Dr Ahmed Sayed who worked at at Southampton General Hospital, is today in ruins.

It comes after police found numerous videos depicting child abuse, including one which involved a baby boy aged between six and nine-months-old.

Sayed, 40, developed a “morbid curiosity” for the explicit material. a court was told.

Southampton Crown Court also heard that he was responsible for the distribution of the images, with hundreds downloading material he put on a website.

In total, when officers searched his home, he was caught with 5,177 extreme photographs as well as 84 moving images in category A, as well as hundreds more in lower categories.

Victoria Hill, prosecuting, said that when Sayed was challenged by officers about the images he originally said that he had only downloaded the images the day before.

However, when his devices were searched it was found his offending started on May 26, 2016 and continued until he was caught on April 20.

She said: “On March 20, police became aware of two IP address which were being used and tracked back to Sayed.

“He was using a website called eMule and on numerous occasions his videos were downloads.

“In one instance 15 moving images were downloaded 61 times.”

In some of the images, the children involved were in discernible pain, she added.

Sayed was dismissed from Southampton General Hospital following his arrest.

He has subsequently been suspended from the Medical Register and is not allowed to practise as a doctor in the UK.

The court heard that Sayed had moved to the UK five years-ago after training to be a heart surgeon in his native Egypt.

He graduated from Cairo University in 2001 and was a registered doctor in the UK by 2010.

Mitigating, Keely Harvey told the court that Sayed started working in Southampton to try and progress within his career as a surgeon but due to financial struggles he became interested in pornography.

She said: “It seems to be that when he has this stress he goes back to what he has done when he was a child and would download things from the internet.

“He developed a morbid curiosity with the pornography.”

At an earlier hearing, Sayed pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent photographs of children, extreme pornography and prohibited images of a child, as well as distribute indecent photographs.

Sayed, who’s address cannot be given out for legal reasons, was sentenced to two years imprisonment, suspended for two years.

A sexual harm prevention order was signed and will be in place for the next 10 years.

Following the sentence, a spokesperson for University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust said: “Dr Sayed was suspended immediately when the trust was made aware of the allegations against him and subsequently dismissed at a hearing in June 2017 which he did not attend.”

It added that he was never unsupervised with children during his time with the organisation.

Hospital body parts scandal grows

Shock waves spread as more cases are unearthed of children’s organs being removed without consent

The body parts scandal that has rocked Liverpool is set to erupt in other areas of the country, with the revelation that other hospitals have retained childrens’ organs without parental consent.Many of Britain’s biggest hospitals – including Leeds General Infirmary and Southampton General Hospital – have admitted removing organs for education or research without the knowledge of relatives. All claim they have changed their procedures and now obtain informed written consent.

However, some hospitals only changed their policy in recent months, after the widespread practice of organ removal emerged at the Bristol Royal Infirmary inquiry, causing concern and alerting the parents in Liverpool.

The Liverpool parents launched an action group at an emergency meeting on Friday night after it was revealed that the Alder Hey Hospital had retained organs – including hearts, lungs and brains – of 850 children without the knowledge of parents. Health Secretary Alan Milburn launched an immediate inquiry. The Chief Medical Officer, Liam Donaldson, is undertaking a separate inquiry.

Yesterday, however, a spokesman for Leeds NHS Trust admitted there were parents who did not realise that their children had had organs removed. Southampton General Hospital also admitted organs had been taken without parents’ knowledge. Denise Foster, duty manager at the hospital, said: ‘We have a small amount of hearts and a number of brains, as we are a research centre for CJD and Alzheimer’s Disease. Alder Hey’s practice, as I understand it, was to remove entire organ systems, whereas we did not do that.’

Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle and Hammersmith Hospital in London confirmed that organ removals did take place, but said it was now only done with the full knowledge and understanding of parents. A spokeswoman for Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Trust said: ‘The same consent form has been used for 13 years, which indicates that we will take tissue, part of or whole organ for treatment of other patients or medical education.’

Andrea Capstick, whose child had his organs removed at Alder Hey Hospital, said she was ‘overwhelmed’ to discover that other hospitals had kept children’s organs. She said: ‘I just didn’t know what to think. I heard that there could be as many as 11,000 organs kept all over the country. I didn’t think it was so big.’

Donna Covey, director of the Association of Community Health Councils, the official watchdog, said: ‘If parents are worried, they should ask their hospitals in writing, and keep a clear record of it, and the replies.’

Evidence given to the Bristol Royal Infirmary Inquiry revealed that it was common practice for hospitals to retain ‘libraries’ of organs preserved in bottles.

As the law stands, it is entirely legal for hospitals to remove organs from bodies – adult or child – for diagnosis, research or education without the explicit knowledge of relatives. Of the 130,000 post mortems carried out each year, 90 per cent are ordered by coroners, and are strictly controlled by the 1984 Coroner’s Rules. They stipulate that organs can only be removed for diagnosis and must be replaced before burial.

The inquiry announced by Milburn on Friday will establish whether the pathologist at the centre of the Alder Hey controversy, Professor Dick van Velzen, broke these rules. However, 10 per cent of post mortems are carried out directly by hospitals, with no coroner, and these are far more loosely regulated.

Hospitals only need to ensure that relatives ‘do not object’ to a post mortem, which can include the removal of ’tissue’ for diagnosis, research or education. But doctors are not required to get written consent, only verbal, and most parents are unlikely to know that the word ’tissue’ legally means entire organs and organ systems.

Donaldson admitted on BBC Radio yesterday that many parents had not understood the ‘full implications’ when giving concent to a post mortem.

Joan Wheeler, chairman of PITY2, the Liverpool parents’ action group which was set up on Friday, said: ‘There is no law. We want it clarified, to have it a criminal offence for anybody to take organs without the express, informed consent of the parent or next of kin.’

Paedophile doctor,  Dr Jonathan Walsh,  jailed over vile child abuse videos
March 20, 2017

A senior children’s doctor has been jailed for distributing horrific films of the worst kind of child abuse to fellow paedophiles.

Paediatric consultant Dr Jonathan Walsh, 47, claimed he looked at the vile material because he was BORED with his job, a court heard.

Married Dr Walsh was a respected consultant paediatrician in the children’s and adolescent services department of the Northern Devon Healthcare Trust.

But his veil of respectability was shattered after being arrested in September 2015 when his sick secret was exposed.

After a raid on his home, police discovered that he had been viewing and downloading many hours of footage of the most serious kind.

And he told his solicitor he carried out the offending as he was “tired” of working at the hospital and wanted to leave medicine.

He was suspended and then sacked after admitting 17 charges including nine counts of distributing indecent images of children and six counts of making them.

None of his crimes related to patients at the North Devon District Hospital in Barnstaple – but Exeter Crown Court heard the vast majority related to ‘Category A’ images which were the most serious and some videos were several hours long.

Walsh, formerly of Barnstaple but now living in Lytham St Annes, Lancs, was jailed today for a total of three years and told his career and reputation were in tatters.

Judge Geoffrey Mercer told him: “Over a period of at least some months, the precise period is unclear, you were involved in downloading and distributing extreme movies and images portraying sexual abuse of children and you went to considerable lengths to try and conceal what it was you were doing,

“You are 47 years old and a man of good character and I have read a number of references provided by people on your behalf who speak very highly of you.

“You have practicised as a paediatrician for a number of years. To state that your sexual interest in children, which outlines these offences, causes real concern in relation to someone in your position is a massive understatement.

“But it needs to be clearly understood that there was no offending in the context of your work and these offences were non contact offences.”

“Your career is now, of course, at an end. To quote from you from one of your letters you have written to me ‘through my actions I have lost my job, my career and my reputation and caused great harm to the ones I love.”

Walsh was sentenced to three years for each of the distributing offences and 12 months for downloading offences. All sentences will run concurrently.

The court heard how he was arrested on 3 September 2015 when officers from the child exploitation unit carried a search out at his home address.

He was arrested and his computer and a memory stick were seized.

No indecent images were found but there was significant evidence that he had been accessing child abuse material as well as file wiping software.

Prosecuting, James Davies said: “A leading forensic expert was called and advised the router to be seized. He found clear evidence of him downloading indecent images of children and distributing them.

“The defendant went to considerable lengths to conceal his online activity. It was over a period of four months that can be identified but not any further than that.

“There were 27 movies that could be retrieved, 26 were catergory A and one category B. 24 had been distributed with a total of 18 hours playing time.”

Defending, Lee Gledhall said his client was full of “severe regret” for what he had done.

He added: “He is a man of previous good character who practised medicine for some considerable years and had a positive impact on the community he lived in.

“This was his time off. It was during these periods he committed these offences.

“He is aware that these are real children in the videos and harm he indirectly caused by the re-distribution of these images.

“He explains he was tired of his job and wanted to get out of medicine after many years of training and working.

“He was a consultant paediatrician. He was instantly sacked at the point of charge and suspended by the GMC.

“It has had a significant impact on his financial situation. He has had to sell the family home and they have moved a considerable distance over the publicity and fall-out.

“He and his wife are still together but he had to explain this to his own children.”

The fall-out of Walsh’s crimes hit the community so hard that a special hotline was set up by the NHS for anyone worried they might have been affected.

Speaking after the case, Detective Inspector Andrea Kingdon said: “We are pleased with today’s sentencing and would like to thank the investigating team and partners for working with such tenacity to bring the offender to justice.

“Walsh was a practising and respected paediatrician in North Devon when he was committing these crimes; he let himself and his profession down by his activities which he went to great lengths to hide.

“The nature of the offending on the images and videos distributed by Dr Walsh are at the most serious end of the scale, and in some of these included movies some hours in length; this is an incredibly upsetting and challenging task for my team to work through.”
George Thomson, medical director for Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust, said: “This case has deeply shaken everybody at NDHT and we know it has been a shock to the community.

“We have worked closely with the police throughout this case and we know that none of these crimes relate to contact offences, and none of the images relate to patients at North Devon District Hospital.

“At the launch of the police investigation in September 2015 we took immediate action to exclude Dr Walsh from working at the Trust and informed the General Medical Council. Dr Walsh was dismissed with immediate effect when he was charged in June.”

Dr Jonathan Walsh / safeguarding role at hospital – part of paedophile ring

A consultant paediatrician’s career is in tatters after he admitted sharing vile child rape movies with fellow paedophiles all around the world.

Dr Jonathan Walsh was treating young children at North Devon District Hospital by day but then going home and looking at movies which showed the most extreme abuse.

He was also sharing the material with fellow paedophiles using peer to peer software which enabled complete strangers to look at the movies.

Walsh was a senior consultant paediatrician at the hospital in Barnstaple until he was dismissed after being charged by police in September 2015. His duties including responsibility for the safeguarding of children.

He will now face a disciplinary hearing at the General Medical Council where he is likely to be struck off.

He spent 17 months denying his involvement but changed his pleas when he appeared at Exeter Crown Court. Sentencing guidelines for distribution of images suggest he is facing a jail term.

Walsh, 47, formerly of Wordsworth Avenue, Barnstaple, but now living at Lytham St Annes, Cheshire, admitted ten counts of distributing and seven of making indecent images or movies of children.

He submitted a basis of plea which stated he had not intended to distribute the movies and was not aware they were available to other users of the file sharing site.

The prosecution rejected his basis of plea and Judge Brian Forster, QC ordered a special fact finding hearing at which a judge sitting without a jury will decide the issue.

The judge ordered him to sign on the sex offenders’ register. He also ordered a probation pre-sentence report.

The fact finding hearing will be heard by Judge Geoffrey Mercer, QC, at Exeter Crown Court next month, on the day originally set down for trial.

Walsh was arrested after intelligence led police to trace his IP address. No movies were found on his computer but an investigation uncovered evidence of around 300 items which had been deleted.

The high tech crime unit called in a professor who specialised in data recovery who helped them identify 35 files through what are known as hash values.

Officers were able to match the hash values with child abuse movies circulating on the internet. They found that all but one of the 35 came into category A, meaning they showed the most serious types of abuse.

The movies were of boys and girls aged from under two to eight and some showed the victims being forced to take part in penetrative sex with adults.

Many of the movies were distributed on the peer-to-peer file sharing website e-mule between January 1, 2014, and August 27, 2015.

Although the charges refer to Walsh making photographs, this is a technical legal term which means downloading rather than creating images.

Mr Jim Davis, prosecuting, said Walsh’s basis of plea is not accepted.

He said: “We propose to call the officer from the high tech crime unit and the officer in the case.

“There has been a meeting of the experts in this case which has led to a joint document being produced. There does not appear to be any divergence about the expert evidence.”

Mr David Welsh, defending, said Walsh intends to give evidence at the fact finding hearing next month. He said: “There is a counter argument to be made.”

Judge Forster said: “Speaking in neutral terms, the defendant needs to consider carefully his position. There is a benefit in maintaining a guilty plea.

“There is expert evidence available which the prosecution may say shows he had good computer knowledge.”

He told Walsh: “I am adjourning this hearing. There is a date for the trial when the basis of plea will be determined and the Judge will listen to the evidence brought by the prosecution and the evidence which you will give.

“You have now pleaded guilty and are required to register with the police as a sex offender. I am unable to give any indication of what the sentence will be as I will not be the Judge on the next occasion.”

A North Devon children’s doctor has today pleaded guilty to a number of child porn offences.

Paediatrician Dr Jonathan Walsh, 47, of Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, and formerly of Wordsworth Avenue, Barnstaple will be sentenced following a hearing which is due to be held on March 20.

In October last year the Journal reported that Walsh had denied the charges put to him.

However, this morning Walsh  pleaded guilty to 17 charges which included 9 counts of distributing indecent images of children and 6 counts of making indecent images of children. The vast majority of the charges related to ‘Category A’ images which are the most serious in their nature.

Police have worked closely with the Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust throughout this case and can confirm that none of these crimes relate to contact offences, and none of these images relate to patients at the North Devon District Hospital.

Detective Inspector Andrea Kingdon from the Force Child Exploitation Unit, said: “Jonathan Walsh was working in a position of responsibility where he had a duty to protect children and young people, yet he choose to commit crimes with the possession and sharing of indecent images of children which leads to the abuse of some of the most vulnerable in our society.

“Walsh was a practicing and respected paediatrician in North Devon when he was committing these crimes; he let himself and his profession down by his activities which he went to great lengths to hide.

“The victims of these types of offences often do not have a voice as their images are shared by paedophilic networks many times over, in a manner which constantly re-victimises them.

“We are determined to eradicate these types of despicable crimes and to stop paedophile offenders from being gratified by such activity, and in doing so protect the vulnerable.

“It is a testament to the commitment and ingenuity of those investigating this case that his level of offending was uncovered which led to his successful prosecution today.

“I wish to thank those staff an officers in the Public Protection Unit who have the unenviable job of viewing and processing this evidence to allow us to bring Dr Walsh to court to face justice.

“The nature of the offending on the images and videos viewed and distributed by Dr Walsh are at the most serious end of the scale, and some of these included movies some hours in length; this is an incredibly upsetting and challenging task for my team to work through.

“This case has demonstrated how effectively all agencies and professionals can work together to identify those perpetrating these types of crimes no matter what their standing in the community.

“Whilst these may not have been contact offences, the viewing and sharing of these types of images directly leads to the abuse of the most vulnerable in our society – Dr Walsh is as responsible as those who film and take part in this horrific abuse of children.

“I hope that this case sends out a strong message to those using the internet for deviant purposes that we have the capability to use advanced technology and expert help to uncover the truth and bring offenders to justice.”

George Thomson, medical director for the Northern Devon Healthcare Trust, said: “This case has deeply shaken everybody at NDHT and we know it has been a shock to the community.

“We have worked closely with the police throughout this case and we know that none of these crimes relate to contact offences, and none of the images relate to patients at North Devon District Hospital.

“At the launch of the police investigation in September 2015 we took immediate action to exclude Dr Walsh from working at the Trust and informed the General Medical Council. Dr Walsh was dismissed with immediate effect when he was charged in June.

“Anybody with any concerns can call 0300 123 1744 to find out how to access support.”

An NSPCC spokesperson for South West England said: “The children in these pictures and videos, some of which fell into the most serious category of offending, are the victims of child abuse and the horrific experiences they endured for the images to be created should not be underestimated.

“Although it has been acknowledged that none of the images related to patients at this hospital, Walsh was working in a position of significant responsibility when he chose to commit these crimes, with no regard for the effects on vulnerable young children.

“Every image is a crime scene and every child will need support to recover. Working with internet providers, it’s vital that more is done to stop this vile trade in indecent images and to cut this material off at the source.

was a series of stories that ran firmly counter to the popular perception of the star as a do-gooding eccentric, popular figure of fun and lay saint.
‘Everyone knows he works long hours at Leeds Infirmary, Stoke Mandeville Hospital and Broadmoor Hospital for the Criminally Insane,’ ran the introduction to the series on day one.
A dark side never revealed before.’ The headline above the opening double-page instalment read ‘MY VIOLENT WORLD, BY JIM THE GODFATHER’.
And underneath: ‘How I fixed it the night lid on what the paper described as the ‘ruthless, calculating Jimmy Savile. A man who engineered his own rise to the top with cold precision. A man who is not scared of violence.’
It was a side to Savile that was totally at odds with the man that kids clamoured to be with, parents admired and the most powerful in society were happy to be associated with.

Soon after the revelations in the Sun, Prime Minister Thatcher went in to bat for Jimmy Savile for a third time. However, in a climate in which the threat of AIDS was causing widespread consternation, the claims about his promiscuous sex life, allied with the thuggish aspects of his dancehall career, meant it was again decided that it would be wise to consider him for a future list.

There were no such reservations within the royal family, though. In late July, the 120-bed National Spinal Injuries Centre welcomed its first new patient. A few days later, on 3 August, Jimmy Savile stood on the front steps with Prince Charles and Princess Diana alongside for the official opening.

His stock was similarly high with the Catholic Church; in December, Cardinal Basil Hume, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, proposed Jimmy Savile for membership at the prestigious Athenaeum Club.

GP, 65, who was jailed for 15 years after filming himself raping children he drugged and tied to his ‘Satan’s pillow’ admits four more sex assaults at his surgery

  • Robert Wells, 65, was jailed in 2004 for drugging and raping kids as young as 11 
  • One told how he stripped her and strapped her to block he called ‘Satan’s pillow’
  • Further victims came forward and three were raped as parents waited outside
  • Jailed for another seven years after court heard of a ‘grotesque breach of trust’

Roberts was jailed at Winchester Crown Court for rapes committed while he worked for an agency providing on-call forensic medical examiners for Hampshire Police.

He had previously had sexual assault charges brought against him but they had not shown up on police checks because he had been cleared when the trial collapsed.

Wells was arrested after he drugged two sisters, aged five and 11, and their mother became suspicious and reported him to police.

The eldest girl had large amounts of benzodiazepine in her body and the younger girl tested positive for temazepam.

Police found both drugs present in his biscuit tin when they raided his home. They also found a timetable for drugging, filming and abusing the children. 

Officers then spoke to other families he had befriended, which was when another 11-year-old girl reported yet more shocking abuse.

She told police that he strapped her to a polystyrene block he called Satan’s pillow as he removed her Harry Potter pajamas then sexually assaulted her.

Police found shocking pornography on his computers, along with the video camera and polystyrene block in his mobile phone.

Police, who were struggling to access certain information on his computer, said they feared there may be more victims and urged them to come forward. 

The victims in the most recent case came forward after hearing of his 2004 conviction, and relate to his time as a GP in the 1980s, before the other assaults. 

The court heard how the charges related to three girls who were Wells’ patients, one of whom was driven to the brink of suicide by the emotional impact of the assault.

In a statement read out in court, one victim said: ‘He has destroyed my life.’

She said Wells had been regarded as an ‘upstanding pillar of the community’.

Wells was a registered medical practitioner at the time, but has since been struck off by the General Medical Council.

One of the girl’s mothers had made a complaint to Caerleon Surgery at the time, but it was ‘arrogantly dismissed’, and she was ‘told not to be so silly’, Mr Roberts told the court.

He added: ‘He left South Wales in the late 1980s and went on to commit a series of depraved offences.

Wells was jailed for seven years and an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order was imposed.

Detective Constable Chris Jayne, from Gwent Police, said: ‘I would like to take the opportunity to recognise the bravery of the victims and their families in this case.

‘Wells is a danger to children and the detrimental impact that he has brought to the lives of the victims from a young age through to adulthood has been incredibly significant.


Sordid picture of rapist doctor

9 Jun 2004

A GWENT doctor was jailed for 15 years yesterday for drugging, raping and indecently assaulting young girls.

And a retired Newport doctor, who worked alongside pervert police surgeon Dr Robert Wells said he is “deeply shocked” at his former colleague’s actions.

Dr Russell Rhys, 79, worked alongside Wells at the Isca Medical Centre in High Street, Caerleon, in the 1980s.

He said: “The man I knew was regarded as a good doctor in the area. “I worked with him for a few years but two years after I retired he became bankrupt.

“Like everyone I was deeply shocked.” After his conviction at Winchester crown court a sordid picture emerged of Wells who befriended the parents of his victims before attacking them.

The court heard Wells, whose full address in Cwmbran has never been revealed, persuaded the parents to allow him to look after the children. Once he had them alone, he drugged the children using benzodiazepine and Temazepam – drugs which would have knocked the girls out and caused amnesia.

He then filmed the girls while he either raped or assaulted them. All the attacks took place early in 2003. Wells moved to the south coast after resigning from the Caerleon surgery in 1989 when he was made bankrupt. A high-profile bankruptcy hearing in Newport saw Wells, who at the time was living in Jerusalem Lane, Pontypool, earn the nickname of the “Romeo doctor”. It emerged the 52-year-old had run up more than £1.5 million in debts on a string of girlfriends, fast cars and holidays abroad.

Wells claimed that he had girlfriends queuing up for him and showered them with gifts, including £800 dresses and watches from Harrods.

After rebuilding his life on the south coast, Wells worked as a forensic medical examiner, or police surgeon, in Southampton and Winchester areas of Hampshire. He also had a private practice in Brighton.

At a flat in Southampton where most of the attacks occurred police found a contraption of covered polystyrene on a wooden board with red straps which one of his victims said was called Satan’s Pillow.

Police raids also found evidence of child pornography and of him accessing paedophile newsgroups.

During his four-week trial Wells, who pleaded not guilty to all charges, said he put himself in a position to be accused of the offences because he wanted a reason to be able to commit suicide.

He was convicted of two charges of rape of an 11-year-old girl and three charges of indecent assault against the same girl.

He was convicted of taking an indecent photograph of a child as well as administering drugs to a second 11-year-old and a girl aged five and indecently assaulting the 11-year-old.

He was cleared of one rape charge involving the first 11-year-old and also of a charge of indecent assault of the five-year-old.

After his conviction Judge Keith Cutler said Wells was a “dangerous sex offender” who breached the trust of his profession, sending a “shiver down the spine.”

The trial heard that Wells, formerly of Hangleton Road, Hove, and Priory Avenue, Southampton, worked as what is commonly known as a police surgeon in the Southampton and Winchester areas of Hampshire and also had a private practice in Brighton.

What the jury at Winchester were not told was that Wells had been charged with abusing girls before.

He was acquitted of attacking an eight-year-old and a girl of 15 in separate trials at Lewes Crown Court in 1995.

In a case which has parallels with that of Soham child killer Ian Huntley, a loophole in vetting procedures allowed Wells to work as a police surgeon despite the charges.

He sought work from a company called Primecare in October 2001. They sub-contracted the doctor to Hampshire Police to work as a Forensic Medical Examiner despite him being known to the neighbouring Sussex force.

This was because the guidelines in force from 1993 to 2002 only required police to check locally and not, as is the case now, the areas a person has lived in for the last five years.

The vetting procedures have been improved since the Criminal Records Bureau was set up in 2002, according to a the Home Office.

The jury was also not made aware of Well’s notorious past as a bankrupt described in the Press as a `Romeo Doc’, who had debts of #1.5 million accumulated through failed businesses and indulgent spending on women.

Both drugs would have knocked the girls out and caused them to suffer amnesia.

Mr Parish said the levels in the older girl could have been potentially fatal and Wells had got it wrong and overdosed the girl.

At the Southampton address police found a piece of paper which the prosecution alleged was a timetable for the drugging of the two sisters and the abuse of the elder one.

It gave times for picking them up from the train station and going to the zoo.

Other notes gave times and the words Angel Delight and Viagra plus indications that what happened had been filmed.

Checks on a seized computer revealed that a film had been created and deleted in the early hours of February 26 and deleted files with the name of the 11-year-old girl on them were also discovered.

Detectives then spoke to another 11-year-old daughter of a family friend from Brighton and she alleged that Wells had attacked her repeatedly during most of 2002 and early 2003 when he was alone with her.

A spokeswoman for Primecare said that Wells had worked for the medical staffing agency since 1979 but added that it had completed all the checks required under the government guidelines in place at that time.

Police search third house after bodies of babies are found

Ann Mahoney, 64, a former psychiatric nurse, was arrested on Tuesday six weeks after a dead baby was discovered wrapped in a bag in an attic .

A search of her present home – a different address on the Gurnos estate in Merthyr Tydfil, south Wales – discovered two more bodies, wrapped in plastic.

Scientific tests have so far failed to establish how the babies died. Detectives are investigating whether they could have been the result of abortions, although the first baby discovered was full term. DNA tests are also being done.

A picture has begun to emerge of the woman, a former nurse, governor of Goetre infants’ school. l and youth football team manager. In 2001, Ms Mahoney was named “citizen of the year” locally for campaigning against antisocial behaviour. At the 3G Development Trust, a charity tackling deprivation, she helped with fundraising and fighting crime.

Ms Mahoney was at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil for 20 years until 1983 and is thought to have worked for social services. She has two daughters and a granddaughter.

UNSOLVED CRIMES

OPERATION TATTINGSTONE

THE MURDER OF BERNARD OLIVER

https://scepticpeg.wordpress.com/2017/11/04/unsolved-crimes-operation-tattingstone-bernard-oliver/


According to this source – Archivesthe Krays ran a paedophile ring.

“What was involved was the systematic abuse of ten-to-twelve-year-old boys, one of whom subsequently became fairly well known as a singer.

“Another, rather less fortunate,wound up in six pieces in two suitcases…

“The police uncovered a large-scale juvenile pimping operation centred on a house in a Suffolk village (Tattington) owned by Ronnie Kray.

(The Kray twins had huge property interests in East Anglia).

Some of the boys were obtained via a close friend of (Benjamin) Britten’s in London, who named him as one of the beneficiaries of the ‘service’: other’customers’ included Lord Boothby (who frequently shared boys with Ronnie Kray himself) and the record producer Joe Meek. 

“At least two other people died in the aftermath of Bernard’s murder as the twins sealed up the leaks.”

Paedophiles Dr Martin Reddington & Dr John Byles

Doctors were murder probe chief suspects

29 October 2004 | UPDATED: 05:22 02 March 2010

TWO doctors wanted for the death and homosexual assault of another boy were the prime suspects in the Tattingstone suitcase murder, it can be revealed today.

TWO doctors wanted for the death and homosexual assault of another boy were the prime suspects in the Tattingstone suitcase murder, it can be revealed today.

Martin Reddington and John Byles both denied any involvement in the strangling and mutilation of mentally disabled teenager Bernard Oliver in January, 1967.

But detectives investigating one of the most horrific crimes Suffolk has ever known, pinpointed the pair as suspects from an early stage in their inquiries.

And when the case was reopened, in 1977, their links were again closely scrutinised. By this time, the case against them had grown even stronger.

But, in a remarkable hole in the investigation, Dr Reddington was never interviewed in connection with the offence.

It was decided there was insufficient evidence to extradite him from Australia, where he was living in 1977.

Original documents from the massive murder probe reveal they were jointly wanted for a string of sickening crimes, including gross indecency and buggery.

And one involved the murder of a boy in London in 1973, after an apparent homosexual relationship.

The previously unrevealed evidence is able to be published today due to the new Freedom of Information Act which will become law at the beginning of next year.

However Suffolk police granted permission for the file to be opened two months early after a request by The Evening Star.

The death of the boy in London in 1973 was a crime which had striking parallels with the gruesome death of Mr Oliver, whose severed body was discovered packed into two suitcases.

Tests on the remains revealed Mr Oliver had taken part in homosexual acts prior to his death, although his friends insisted he was not gay.

Two years before Mr Oliver’s death, a warrant had been issued for the arrest of Dr Reddington for the buggery and indecent assault of males, in 1965.

But before police inquiries could be completed, he fled the country for South Africa. Despite several attempts, the warrant was never executed and his guilt neither proved nor disproved.

It was known he made a number of return visits to the United Kingdom since leaving, although no evidence was ever found to place him in Suffolk or North London in January 1967.

The strong lack of leads to back up suspicions against the pair hindered the investigation from day one.

Yet, at the same time a great deal of other circumstantial evidence was building up.

One clue was the location of Dr Reddington’s surgery in Muswell Hill, North London, which was in the direction of the street Mr Oliver was last seen walking down.

Despite every address in the area being searched, the crime scene was never established – nor was any link with Suffolk.

The only possible clue was the local knowledge of Colchester-born Dr Reddington, although Dr Byles denied any knowledge of the county when interviewed.

A private investigator in Muswell Hill provided one of the fascinating pieces of evidence in the entire investigation.

She claimed to recognise the suitcase used to discard the body parts of Mr Oliver, pointing to the distinctive P.V.A initials on its side.

She told detectives she spoke to a man in a launderette on numerous occasions and vividly remembered the suitcase being brought in containing his dirty washing.

It was her description that to an artist’s impression of the killer being released.

And when the inquiry was reopened in 1977, she picked out a photograph of Dr Reddington as one of three men she recognised as owning the suitcase.

Another other clue that caused suspicion to fall on the two doctors was the expert way in which the body was cut up.

Neatly severed into eight parts, the precise and deliberate nature of the operation meant only an expert could have carried it out.

A consultant surgeon at the then Ipswich and East Suffolk Hospital decided the crime was most likely to have been committed by a doctor, surgeon or medical student.

It was someone with “knowledge of anatomy with previous experience of dismemberment”. The gory task had been “expertly accomplished”, with the exception of one joint.

The consultant explained: “One would expect the person dissecting the body, irrespective of how calm and deliberate he may have been, to show some sign of nerves, anxiety or excitement towards the end of the dissection.

“This could well be the reason for the bad workmanship on the left knee joint.”

But despite this growing weight of evidence by the late 1970s, Dr Reddington went to his grave without ever answering any questions relating to the crime. He died in May 1995, aged 63.

By now, Dr Byles had committed suicide in 1975, after being arrested and charged for an indecent assault in London, while in Australia.

He jumped bail and committed suicide before the full facts of the matter could be determined.

The 38-year-old left two suicide notes beside his body, one to Reddington, and another to Scotland Yard.

The note to police contained an apology for what he had done, but there was no direct reference to the Tattingstone murder. He was thought to have been responsible for the death of a cabin boy.

Eric Shields, a former detective sergeant with Suffolk police, was one of the officers who worked on infamous crime nearly 40 years ago.

Today he said: “The investigation was carried out in minute detail. As far as I’m concerned, it was dealt with in a highly professional manner.”

“I’m sure all the officers who worked on the Tattingstone murder are disappointed nobody has been brought to book.”

Victim of paedophile doctor urges more women to come forward

Woman, known as Jasmine, awarded damages after being abused by Myles Bradbury

11 July 2018

Myles Bradbury at Cambridge crown court

A female victim of a paedophile doctor, who it had been assumed only preyed on boys, has urged other women to come forward after being awarded a five-figure sum in damages.

Myles Bradbury was jailed for 22 years in 2014 for abusing boys at Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridgeshire between 2009 and 2013.

It is feared that his abuse began earlier and was more extensive. A 26-year-old woman, referred to only as Jasmine to protect her identity, alleged that Bradbury abused her during his time at Birmingham children’s hospital between 2007 and 2008, when she was 14.

She said Bradbury arranged an appointment that was not needed when she was being checked for blood clots. He then asked her to undress, carried out an unnecessary examination and sexually assaulted her, Jasmine said.

Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS foundation trust paid more than £10,000 to settle the case.

In a statement issued her by lawyers, Hudgell Solicitors, Jasmine said: “You try and convince yourself that something like this has not affected you, but it does. I have lost my trust in health professionals.

“My 18-month-old daughter had to go to A&E recently and it was a male doctor, and I wasn’t comfortable with that.

“I haven’t heard of any other girls coming forward, and have seen that all his convictions were against boys, but I don’t believe that I was the only girl to have been hurt in this way.”

Her lawyer, Renu Daly, said: “When she first approached me, she said ‘nobody is going to believe me because I’m a girl and it was in a different hospital’.

“She always felt her examination was totally inappropriate, which it was. Bradbury chose to see her and carry out an examination when she was being investigated for a blood disorder, nothing to do with a physical examination.”

Daly added: “She wanted to raise the profile for other women, on the basis that if there are other women struggling they should come forward. It is less scary to do it when someone else has taken the plunge.”

“I think there are lot of other victims. And it is about getting your life back on track. She has really moved her life on since she first came forward. She was broken to start with. She wants to move on with her life and she is not going to let Bradbury destroy the rest of it.”

In a statement, the trust said: “The safety of the children and young people we see is a priority. When these allegations came to light we contacted all of the families under Bradbury’s care to offer support and advice, referring any concerns to the police.

“At the time, we also conducted a thorough review of our approach to chaperoning to offer families further reassurance around the safety of their children, while in our care. This is something we continuously audit.”

Survivors Offline

the findings of the independent Lampard Review into Savile’s activities within more than 40 NHS hospitals.

The Review found: 

“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.”


Liz Dux, a lawyer representing 44 of Savile’s victims, responded to the report:

“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.” 

 

“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.”

 

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.”
Jimmy Savile & Eve Saville,
TAVISTOCK, PSYCHOLOGY,

  • Did the Tavistock Clinic and its partners conduct clinical experiments on patients into the effects of psychosexual abuse?
  • Was a female member of Jimmy Savile’s family complicit in consenting for JS to be part of clinical research experiments?
  • Was JS as a boy experimented upon (i.e. tortured) with psychosexual abuse to shape his personality? So that JS could fill a specific role for the elite in adulthood? 
  • Was JS’s life of predations one decades-long experiment, designed, set up and monitored by psychologists linked to the Tavistock or its partners?
PSYCHOLOGY AND JIMMY SAVILE

Britain’s front organisations and secret societies are often permeated with Friends of Israel – that is, radical Zionists pursuing the political aim of a Greater Israel.

Also represented disproportionately among the rosters of patrons, trustees and directors of top institutions are people with links to domestic and foreign Intelligence (especially MI5 and Mossad), and Britain’s parliamentary, Third Sector, medical, social care, teaching, policing, law, journalism and media Establishments.

What else connects Britain’s spooky organisations, such as the examples below?

  1. The Tavistock Centre, including its Gender Identity Development Service
  2. The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations
  3. The British False Memory Society
  4. The London School of Economics (e.g. its Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science) 
  5. The Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science (e.g. its interests in forensic psychology, developmental psychology and applied psychology)
  6. Freud Communications (Public Relations)
  7. Clarence Mitchell Communications Ltd (Public Relations)
  8. Mind, the mental health charity
  9. Common Purpose (its emphasis on Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP)
  10. News Corp UK and Ireland; Daily Mail and General Trust
The answer is that all possess an acute interest in, and understanding of, human PSYCHOLOGY, or how the human mind works:how our perceptions, thoughts and behaviours are acquired and develop, and how they can be manipulated.

By applying this powerful knowledge in practical ways, organisations like those above strive to alter or influence people’s perceptions, thoughts and behaviours.

The target could be an individual, a particular group of people, or an entire society. Most front organisations and secret societies (link) have interests in one or more of the following strands of psychological inquiry:
  1. The stages of human cognitive, emotional and personality development, and the influences thereon;
  2. How sexual and gender identity, sexual orientation and sexuality are formed, and the influences thereon;
  3. Sexual, emotional and physical abuse and its impact on the psyche;
  4. How mental health disorders, including Dissociative Disorders and deviant sexual personalities develop, or can be developed;
  5. Psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and Applied Behaviour Analysis as tools for shaping or altering thoughts, personality and behaviour;
  6. Principles of social conditioning; 
  7. Opinion formation and Public Relations theory, including strategies and techniques of persuasion, and how consent can be manufactured
  8. The role for psychological disciplines in contributing to mass cultural and political transformation

Front organisations and secret societies typically peddle harmful social doctrines, destructive symbolism and disinformation, in the pursuit of certain socio-political ends.

Some specialise in developing Dissociative Identity Disorder in targets using techniques such as trauma-based mind control.

In the first instance, the disorientation and fracturing of the individual is a goal. Demoralised, confused and fearful individuals may stop acting logically, reasonably, or even in some cases, morally. Many cannot resist the programming which then follows.

Individuals at the receiving end of the most intense efforts to fracture and splinter the Mind typically can become psychotic, schizophrenic, suicidal, or otherwise dangerously unbalanced, depending on the type, severity and duration of the programming applied.

Guises and roles into which mind-controlled subjects are pushed may include: sex slave; sexual deviant; sexual exhibitionist; patsy (in the style of a maniacal terrorist or other cold-blooded murderer); ideological extremist; radical propagandist; impulsive, volatile and capricious person; manic depressive; or some combination of these.

Cyril Burt was a member of the London School of Differential Psychology and the British Eugenics Society. Amy Strachey was the wife of John Strachey (junior), a journalist whose father, John Strachey (senior), was a Labour politician with possible links to British intelligence
Jimmy Savile was born in 1926. That same year, Cyril Burt and John Strachey junior appealed to the Commonwealth Fund for(i) funding to start training psychiatric social workers at the London School of Economics; and (ii) and support for child guidance.

Funds were duly granted, so that in 1929 the London School of Economics was able to establish Britain’s first course for training PSWs.The Association of Psychiatry Social Work was established that same year.Also in 1929, just three years after the birth of Jimmy Savile, the Jewish Health Organisation established the London Child Guidance Clinic.It was Britain’s first children’s psychiatric facility, and it also provided training to educational psychologists, social workers and social workers.

The London Child Guidance Clinic later became the Tavistock Clinic.

The Portman Clinic has long had close ties to the Tavistock Clinic and in 1994 joined with it to become the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust.

The General Secretary of the ITSD was a woman called Eve Saville, MBE.

“Whether she was related to Jimmy, OBE, I do not know,” writes Horsley. “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”.

Horsley adds:

found a most unexpected affiliation between Eve Saville and Victor Neuburg, Crowley’s ill-fated homosexual partner and disciple … 
Neuberg was one of the founding members of the ISTD.”

More coincidences?

  • The TAVISTOCK CLINIC’S founding father was CLEMENT FREUD’S GRANDFATHER, Sigmund Freud. CLEMENT FREUD (who is related to self-confessed former Mossad spy Uri Geller) was a prolific paedophile.
  • Nick Ross’ father, Hans, had a sister named Dina. Dina become a child psychotherapist at the TAVISTOCK CLINIC (Nick Ross is linked to alleged Savile accomplice and Mossad asset Esther Rantzen. The wider familial and social circle around Nick Ross includes his wife Sarah Caplin, Dr Alan Farthing and Sir Cliff Richard, all of whom are alleged collaborators).
  • ROLF HARRIS approached the TAVISTOCK CLINIC and the NSPCC in the 1980s with his idea about making a film on child sexual abuse. Esther Rantzen’s Childwatch donated £15,000 for the film, ‘Kids Can Say No’, which was filmed on Hampstead Heath. An NSPCC committee reviewed and approved the film. After ‘Kids Can Say No’ the TAVISTOCK CLINIC also helped produce a ROLF HARRIS sequel to it.
  • Esther Rantzen went on to develop Childwatch into the Childline charity. In 2006 Dr Carole Easton, who was Childline’s chief executive at the time, persuaded the NSPCC to absorb Childline into the larger charity. Dr Easton trained as a child and adolescent psychotherapist at the TAVISTOCK CLINIC.
  • The late MP LEO ABSE has been investigated by police in connection with child sexual abuse allegations. His surviving niece, SUSANNA ABSE previously worked for the TAVISTOCK CLINIC as the CEO of Tavistock Relationships.
  • The TAVISTOCK CLINIC was originally established in TAVISTOCK SQUARE, the location of the slaughter of 13 bus passengers on 7/7 2005. Margaret Hodge, at the heart of the Islington Child Abuse Scandal, has said that her SISTER was working in TAVISTOCK SQUARE at the time of the explosion.
  • CLIFF RICHARD (allegedly) abused children at the Elm Guest House and elsewhere, it has been reported. Sir Cliff once owned a company called Blacknight Limited, an unusual moniker with distinctly occult connotations. Blacknight was registered to an address in TAVISTOCK SQUARE.
  • In another extraordinary coincidence, CLIFF RICHARD’s lawyer, Gideon Benaim, has his office in TAVISTOCK SQUARE. Benaim previously represented the notorious convicted paedophile, Roman Polanski.
  • EXARO NEWS, the investigative news website that specialised in reporting on establishment paedophilia, was liquidated by the accountants Menzies LLP (insolvency practitioners Freddy Khalastchi and Jonathan David Bass). Menzies LLP is located in TAVISTOCK SQUARE.
  • TAVISTOCK SQUARE was so-named because the estate on which it sits was owned by the Dukes of Bedford from TAVISTOCK, DEVON. In another coincidence, Exaro News’ former owner, DR JEROME BOOTH, grew up in TAVISTOCK, DEVON.
  • In an astonishing coincidence, another famous resident of Tavistock Devon is the late Michael Jackson’s bodyguard, Matt Fiddes. Michael Jackson’s circle of friends included the late serial child rapist GREVILLE JANNER, as well as the self-confessed former Mossad spy, Uri Geller, who is related to the late paedophile MP, Clement Freud.
  • Another famous resident of Tavistock Devon is the Marchioness of Tavistock, Henrietta Russell, who once co-authored a book with spooky Daily Mail journalist and friend of Louis Theroux’s mother, ANGELA LEVIN. Intriguingly, Angela Levin once also wrote a “fawning” biography on serial paedophile MAX CLIFFORD and  books about Camilla Parker-Bowles and the family of Princess Diana. Moreover, Levin was warned about Jimmy Savile attacking young disabled children, but said nothing.
  • Adjoining Tavistock Square is TAVISTOCK PLACE, site of the National Institute of Social Work. The Institute’s former Director of Education was the notorious convicted paedophile PETER RIGHTON of the PAEDOPHILE INFORMATION EXCHANGE, who in 1979 sat on a steering committee with Janet Mattinson of the TAVISTOCK CENTRE. Righton was a friend of PIE treasurer Charles Napier; the pair have been linked to the national abuse network.
  • PRINCE CHARLES and Princess Diana both received psychiatric services from TAVISTOCK CLINIC trained psychiatrist Dr Alan McGashan. Laurens Van der Post has been identified as the paedophile who introduced Prince Charles to Dr McGashan. Quite incredibly, the prince was treated for 14 years by the Tavistock-trained doctor, according to one historian.
  • Cicely Meehan, one of the two sisters who helped raise alleged Dolphin Square child trafficker and child rapist DEREK LAUD, was a CHILD PSYCHOLOGIST. Was Cicely Meehan trained by, working for, or in any way connected to the TAVISTOCK CLINIC? Did Cicely Meehan use trauma-based mind control, and/or other methods, to create in Derek Laud a disturbed personality (Dissociative Identity Disorder?) as part of a Tavistock clinical experiment, sponsored by British and Israeli Intelligence, with links to the alleged Savile-Currie-Freuds-Hodges-Vaz-Rantzen-royalty network of VIP child traffickers and paedophiles?
  • Dr Valerie Sinason, founder of the Clinic for Dissociative Studies, was Consultant Child Psychotherapist at the TAVISTOCK CLINIC from 1987 to 1999; Consultant Psychotherapist at both the Anna Freud and Portman Clinics from 1994 to 1997; and from 1994 to 2006 a Consultant Research Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst at St George’s Hospital Medical School. Strangely enough, Dr Sinason sits on the Advisory Council of Norwood, the prominent British-Jewish charity to which Jimmy Savile donated his time and talents. 
  • Decades treating survivors of child abuse at the TAVISTOCK CLINIC and affiliated institutions has left Dr Sinason in no doubt that children across the UK were sexually abused by a network of VIP paedophiles – the Zionist fixer Jimmy Savile prominent among them – with ritual abuse a not uncommon feature of many of the episodesDr Sinason does not appear to realise, however, that a faction within her own former institution, the Tavistock Clinic, is itself heavily involved in the design and practice of projects to effect psycho-sexual trauma. (And what does Dr Sinason make of the late Jimmy Savile’s association with her own ‘Norwood’ Jewish charity?)

And even MORE coincidences?

Peter Parker was a member of the Medical Research Council and the chairman of the London School of Economics (there’s that university again) from 1988 to 1998
“As chairman of British Rail, it was Parker who brought in Jimmy Savile as the face of British Rail in the ad campaign.

Parker’s wife Lady Gillian Parker was a founder member of the British False Memory Syndrome Association.”

One anonymous commenter on a blog wrote:

“There had been some years of group psychiatric research conducted by Tavistock Institute on all the care home resident communities in UK of Leonard Cheshire Homes. This research had been commissioned by Dept of Health. But details of its legality and purpose are still refused disclosure by Attorney General (Dominic Grieve).”

 
On a different blog, another person said:

“Let’s not forget that the ‘talking treatments’ at the Tavistock mean that those who end up there and others place tell a lot of ‘secrets’ which can be usefully ‘shared'”

 
Psychosexual torture on children at Dolphin Square was Tavistock sanctioned experimentation?

The strange career of Sir Rodney Brooke.

  1. Sir Rodney is a Member of the Council of the Tavistock Institute
  2. He is Chairman of the Dolphin Square Trust
  3. He is a Trustee of the Dolphin Square Charitable Foundation
  4. He was the first permanent Chairman of the General Social Care Council
  5. He was the Chief Executive of Westminster City Council and the Association of Metropolitan Authorities. (Westminster City Council was reportedly the ultimate landlord of Dolphin Square during the period when vulnerable boys from the Bryn Alyn Community, Kincora’ boys home, and other institutions were being trafficked there to be abused by certain of Shirley Porter’s Conservative councillors, as well as by certain parliamentarians.)
  6. He was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant in 1989. 

 

  • Did Tavistock-designed experiments in psychosexual trauma and mind-fracturing initiated at the birth of Jimmy Savile continue throughout the DJ’s sordid life?
  • Did the children and adults who suffered at the hands of JS and other paedophiles suffer because of Tavistock or its affiliates?
  • In the 1920s, as psychology and psychiatry became disciplines with their own treatment, research and teaching facilities such as the Tavistock Clinic and its affiliates, did some Zionist practitioners apply their expertise to a Zionist political agenda?
  • Has research into child and adult sexual trauma been carried out over decades because the Powers that Be have permanent requirements for – Paedophiles and demoralised victims of rape? – Aggressors and victims with personality disorders? – Mind-controlled (personality splintered) patsies to be used for dramatic, violent interventions into public life designed to generate huge socio-political impact, such as staged terror events? – Mind-controlled (personality splintered) public figures to influence the society and culture in ways tending to disorientate and demoralise the population?

The Rings

According to Operation Yewtree, there is “no clear evidence” he operated in paedophile rings, although “whether he was part of an informal network” is still being investigated.

However, according to the BBC, Savile “had different groups of friends in different places. They were his “‘teams’, he called them”.   It appears from the above that Savile operated in the following “Teams” (to use his term instead of the usual ring, sect, covern, network or gang):

  1. A paedophile “Team”/Ring in Scarborough, involving Mr Corrigan, Mr Jaconelli and possibly others.
  1. A Satanist “Team”/Ring in Whitby, involving Mr Jaconelli and possibly others, centered on the property in Whitby which had “the chamber’ in it.  Whilst we do not know what went on there and it could have been entirely innocent, when you have a cocktail of satanist and sadomasochistic paraphernalia, and Savile, an innocent explanation is unlikely.
  1. A Satanist “Team”/Ring in Stoke Mandeville Hospital, involving Savile and several others.

  1. There was also a fourth “Team”/Ring in Rochdale, led by Horgan, who was closely associated with Cyril Smith.  Smith was certainly Savile’s oldest friend and a very close confidant.

PIE list had been all but ignored until recent paedophile allegations surfaced.

Detectives knew of 300 names in a secret club that advocated sex with children

Police kept the secret membership list of a controversial group which advocated sex with children  and let it “sit in a drawer”, leaving several of those named on it free to commit serious child abuse.

So many cases where police have obtained membership lists and done nothing.

Why police not questioning the PIE members that are currently in prison?

Easy as PIE – the rebranding of paedophilia

12 Sepy 2019

Trauma expert Dr JACQUI DILLON reports how she was intimidated and had her Twitter account suspended for raising questions about ‘minor-attracted persons’ amid a worrying trend of dangerous child abusers becoming organised online

CURRENTLY, there is a growing movement to rebrand paedophilia — a word which in itself is problematic — although it is currently synonymous with people who sexually abuse children.

As a survivor of organised childhood sexual exploitation (CSE), I can attest that the sexual abuse of children is the antithesis of love, unlike the denotion of the etymology of the word.

Over the years, there have been numerous attempts to legitimise paedophilia. The Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), was a British-based pro-paedophile activist group, founded in 1974.

The group campaigned for the age of consent to be lowered to the age of four, while receiving significant funding from the Home Office and was affiliated with the National Council for Civil Liberties.

Such groups still exist internationally. In a letter to the Guardian in 1997, Peter Tatchell stated that friends as young as nine had sexual experiences which gave them “great joy.”

Tatchell inferred that while he was unable to condone paedophilia, he claimed that not all sex involving children was “unwanted, abusive or harmful.”

The current attempts to legitimise paedophilia have become apparent on Twitter, with a growing number of people describing themselves as “Maps,” an acronym for “minor-attracted person,” a term used by individuals who are sexually attracted to those below the age of consent, including: nepiophilia or infantophilia (attraction to babies and toddlers); paedophilia (attraction to pre-pubescent children); hebephilia (attraction to pubescent children/early adolescents); and ephebophilia (attraction to late adolescents).

Twitter currently has a policy which explicitly states that “discussions related to child exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction to minors are permitted, provided they don’t glorify CSE in any way.”

This change in policy was achieved by a renowned expert in the treatment of paedophilia and “Map” advocate lobbying Twitter’s director of trust and safety, stating that it would “help reduce the stigma associated with pedophilia [sic].”

Anyone who is 13 or older can access Twitter where they are now exposed to content where adults openly discuss their attractions to children with impunity.

I began disseminating this information on Twitter and questioning the motivations of “Maps” and their advocates.

I have been trolled on numerous occasions, including a time when Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (aslo known as Tommy Robinson) and his followers Twitter mobbed me and told me that I deserved to be gang raped because I objected to their cynical hijacking of CSE for their fascist agenda.

They dismissed the fact that the perpetrators who abused me were all white and British, displayed zero interest in CSE perpetrated by white offenders, who are by far the vast majority of all sexual offenders, or expressed outrage at such offences being committed within their own ranks.

However, my experiences with the lengths that “Maps” are willing to go to is on another level.

I have been viciously and relentlessly trolled for weeks, an obsessive and libellous blog, clearly written by a highly disturbed individual, has been circulated about me, attempting to discredit me.

I have been bombarded with Photoshopped images of my face grafted onto graphic, pornographic images. And other things I will not share due to safety issues.

I have been advised by those speaking from personal experience that “Maps” have a history of doxxing people and their children. And worse.

Consequently, a group of “Maps” mass reported me to Twitter for objecting to their attempts to normalise their predilections and their attempts to legitimise sexual attraction to children as being innate and immutable, which based on current research is highly contestable.

For example, many advocate adding a P to LGBT. Naturally, many of us within the LGBT community find this idea abhorrent.

“Maps” and their professional allies advocate child sex dolls, arguing that there is no evidence that they increase the likelihood of offending.

Equally, there is no evidence that they reduce the risk of offending — a child sex doll is just another form of objectifying a child for sexual gratification.

I was then notified by Twitter that my account had been permanently suspended for “abuse and harassment.” Despite appealing my permanent suspension it was upheld.

It was only when I and others directly lobbied the vice-president of Twitter Europe, stating that my suspension was a travesty that suddenly, without explanation, my suspension was lifted.

Clearly Twitter, with its vast profits, needs to employ people to monitor activity on its platform rather than relying on algorithms to maintain safety and integrity.

Crucially, it urgently needs to review its CSE policy which is currently not fit for purpose.

As soon as my permanent suspension was lifted, I was flooded with new reports from Twitter.

Those who had conspired to get my account suspended, openly gloating about it when they thought they had succeeded, were the same people scrutinising my timeline on @jacquidillon @beckrdalliance, an alliance I founded for survivors of CSE, looking for tweets to report.

Again, they openly discussed their intention to silence me. For the first time ever, I locked both accounts over the summer break.

Professor Jennifer Freyd coined the acronym “Darvo” to describe a set of tactics perpetrators often employ to avoid being held accountable for their actions.

Perpetrators frequently Deny their behaviour, Attack the individual who is holding them to account and Reverse the roles of Victim and Offender, so that the perpetrator assumes the victim role and turns the victim into the alleged perpetrator.

The behaviour of these “Maps” is entirely consistent with perpetrator behaviour.

There is a small but significant number of people who want to sexually abuse children. Bearing in mind that one perpetrator can wreak havoc on numerous children’s lives, as a society, we have to address this unpalatable truth in order to stop the epidemic of child abuse and its devastating consequences.

However, constructing one’s identity around a predilection to sexually abusing children, creating a community with a dubious agenda, rather than seeking help in more appropriate settings, is highly suspect.

The notion of “non-offending” offers little reassurance. Child abusers are notoriously deceitful. Perhaps the opportunity to access a child has not yet arisen or they have simply not been detected.

Therefore anyone with an unhealthy interest in children must be deemed a risk to children. Additionally, this distinction between contact and non-contact is meaningless in a space where identities and claims cannot be verified.

I have been sent evidence that some of the most vociferous “Maps” have committed extremely serious crimes against children and are currently grooming children.

Authorities have been notified. These people are organised, using multiple identities, groups, platforms and are linked internationally. Their methods are insidious yet blatant — hidden in plain sight.

As a survivor of CSE who is directly challenging “Maps,” I am seen as a real and present threat.

One of the things that I have learned through surviving the horrors of my childhood is that is essential to defy such intimidation tactics.

I have always been outspoken. It is an entirely strategic position I take as a working-class woman, survivor and activist.

As the great Audre Lorde said: “Your silence will not protect you.” I refuse to be silenced by a group of paedophiles ever again. I look forward to making my Twitter account public again today.

Lord Henniker offered Peter Righton and Richard Alston refuge there when they fled Evesham in 1992. He employed Napier..

in senior positions teaching abroad with British Council and ran Islington‘s Suffolk children’s scheme.


Peter Righton was questioned about child sex offences in November 1994

A recently discovered press cutting shows that Peter Righton was questioned about indecent assaults on children by the Obscene Publications Squad in November 1994 – several months after the Hereford & Worcester investigation had been shut down, and after the BBC documentary Secret Life of a Paedophile had been broadcast. It can be assumed by the absence of any further news reports that he was never charged with an offence, despite clear evidence from his diaries including names and ages of victims, along with the name of the institution where he abused them. The November 1994 arrest took place in Eye, Suffolk – presumably at Lord Henniker’s estate, where he had been living since his 1992 arrest.

Henniker was needing cash for his stately pile upkeep – quite a business he had going – somehow the cash kept flowing in…………….

No wonder he considered Righton a good tenant?

From what I have been hearing, it is virtually proven that Harding liked to take boys to Amsterdam.

I think I am probably one of the last surviving members of the old Thursday Club, the gang of cronies that the Duke of Edinburgh used to gather round him in the 1950s to have a bit of fun away from his serious life at Buckingham Palace.

On an average night of the Thursday Club there would be 10 or 15 members present. There would be Lord Louis Mountbatten, Arthur Koestler, Prince Philip, Cecil Beaton, and little Larry Adler playing his mouth organ in the corner, and maybe one or other of the Kray brothers.

According to the Mirror:

SECRET files about Prince Philip’s private life are to remain locked behind closed doors for 100 years.

Most confidential Cabinet documents relating to relating to the royals and government are covered by the “30-year rule”.

But at least 27 royal files in the vaults of the Public Records Office at Kew, West London and many of , are considered so delicate they are labelled: “Closed for 100 years“.

More than 10 concern astonishing MI5 and Scotland Yard reports on the Duke Of Edinburgh’s private life.

As an explosive new biography of the Queen hints that the Greek-born Prince was unfaithful to the Queen, we can reveal that Buckingham Palace courtiers and security chiefs were once so concerned about Philip’s non- royal activities that they ordered round-the-clock surveillance.

They feared the Royal Family would be compromised and that there would be a constitutional crisis if news leaked out of how the Prince was behaving.

He was known to be “letting his hair down” with celebrities of the day at weekly meetings of the Thursday Club above exclusive Wheeler’s Restaurant in Soho.

One senior detective, now retired, who was attached to the Prince’s protection team, said: “It’s true we had to report back on where we had been and who had been present.”

But he refused to discuss the Prince’s private visits.It is not known what details of Prince Philip’s private life were made known to the Queen or the Privy Council. But it will not be until the years 2052 to 2060 that they will be released – if then.”

HAYMAN ARRESTED IN 1984

The Guardian
(London, Greater London, England)
17 May 1984, Thu  • Page 4

 

‘Official’ papers may not tell whole story of historical paedophilia scandal

The discovery and release of government papers detailing the investigation into the alleged ‘unnatural’ sexual conduct of diplomat Sir Peter Hayman generated substantial press coverage. Unreported, however, were alternative contemporary accounts offering a different story of the legal proceedings brought against members of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) in the early 1980s.

The official National Archives documents confirmed what we already knew about Hayman. A retired diplomat and former High Commissioner in Canada, he was exposed in Private Eye in 1980, named by the MP Geoffrey Dickens under parliamentary privilege in 1981, and scrutinised in the press, where he was linked to PIE.

It is not surprising to learn that reports on Hayman crossed Margaret Thatcher’s desk and that a press ‘line’ was agreed. The authorities’ main concern seems to have been the possible national security implications of Hayman’s indiscretions, demonstrative of long-standing Cold War anxieties about the subversive potential of sexual blackmail.

While the National Archives files – known as PREM 19/588 – suggest there was no official protection of Hayman, that he was not immune from prosecution, and that there was no evidence linking him to specific crimes, a different story exists in alternative archival sources. In particular, the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) Gay Rights Sub-Committee documented events differently.

As with many organisations from the ‘gay left’, this sub-committee was concerned about the potential implications of the PIE prosecutions on the future policing of ‘non-normative’ sexual behaviour, including homosexuality. Civil libertarians more generally were anxious about the vagueness of conspiracy charges in general. The sub-committee was also close to the defence team, and its Gay Rights Officer, Barry Prothero, attended committal proceedings outlining the evidence gathered in relation to PIE.

In November 1980, Prothero corresponded with campaigners in Canada about the case. He wrote: ‘The DPP [Director of Public Prosecutions] seems to be negotiating to drop the conspiracy charges [because] there is another man who may have been charged and who was not because of his connections and blowing the cover-up is likely to be worse for the DPP than proceeding with the prosecutions.’

Prothero noted that ‘although assisting in a “cover-up” may be distasteful, not only the defendants but the entire gay movement in this country would be delighted if this one succeeded in order to keep the case out of court.’

A second letter was more specific. Prothero wrote that the DPP used only a ‘tiny fraction of the evidence presented at the committal proceedings’ and called just four of the 13 witnesses present at the earlier hearing: ‘Of the hundred-odd boxes of material that were used at the committal, only five magazines and a handful of letters were used at the trials.’

Accordingly, Prothero observed that it was ‘clear that most of the evidence that was not used was dropped because Hayman, the erstwhile HC [High Commissioner] to Canada, was the central figure in its production. The defence barristers tell me that he began the “round Robin”, as the letter writing circle is called, which generated most of the material upon which the committal was based.’

While the Gay Rights Sub-Committee’s interest in PIE was problematic, it did mean that it was well-informed about the case. Its documents suggest that questions must still be asked about these competing accounts, as well as the evidence disregarded by the DPP and how decisions were made at that level.

The contents of these documents also show some difficulties in searching for accounts of historical sex offences. Official archives are often limited and partial; there are constraints on the past that they capture. The processes permitting the assembly and compilation of material influence what has been included, excluded and catalogued.

More will be revealed if additional files can be found and those which are under closure orders are opened. Now that the official inquiry into historic child sex offences is mobilising, it is important that official reports and documents are properly investigated. It is equally vital, however, that evidence produced outside of the state and, perhaps most importantly, the testimonies of survivors, are properly and sensitively gathered and evaluated. Consideration of the abused is absent from PREM 19/588.

If the files fail to show the ‘establishment’ cover-up that NCCL members felt occurred, they are still demonstrative of an official attitude favouring protection over investigation; shutting down inquiries rather than opening them up. It remains unclear if that attitude has entirely changed.

Nice summation.

Intriguing FOI request regarding Dolphin Square, hospitals, Islington, Henniker estate, Nick, suspicious deaths etc.

Richard Card 6 January 2017

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

I am referring to the Dolphin Square Inquiry made re child abuse complaints by “Nick”. And whether historical inquiry explored the implications of Sir John’s death 1991 concerning his casework that was cut short.

Without knowing what further correspondence took place between attorney general and police minister and Sir John I can only say that it was inevitable his casework would have led to questions about the six years of disabled child deaths 1966 to 1972 in Islington and Hackney care at The Beeches Ixworth. A village close to the Henniker Estate later home to Peter Righton and allegedly abusive Islington Suffolk project.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Card

Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) 18 January 2017

Dear Mr Card

Freedom of Information Request Reference No:2017010000144

I respond in connection with your request for information which was
received by Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 01/01/2017.

DECISION

I have decided that, in accordance with Section 8 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (the Act), your enquiry is not considered a valid
request.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Would you disclose how far advanced the BBC is in providing the Panorama broadcast, the research and the follow up deliberations to the CSA Inquiry please ?

The programme featured Edwin BAARS a mental patient discharged homeless to Margate. In time he ended up in one of the resort’s many “Section 37” Homes. Former boarding houses registered as care homes (not nursing homes and hence no requirement to employ qualified nurses)

At the time Barbara Castle MP was DHSS minister with special advisor barrister jack STRAW. And a question arises about two dogs that neither barked nor bit. BBC and MIND where Peter RIGHTON was an executive I think.

The most recent Commons question then re Section 37 homes avoiding qualified staff expense was 1972 by Barbara Castle MP about Sue Ryder HQ Cavendish. Sir Keith Joseph refused care inquiry. He also refused inquiry into six years of child deaths of disabled children in social services London care at the Beeches Ixworth Suffolk a village adjoining the now notorious Henniker estate (abusive Islington Suffolk Project)

For public record I should also point out that Sue Ryder’s husbands charity had been subject of Dept of Health commissioned group psychiatric research by Tavistock Institute. Possibly as a consequence the Leonard Cheshire inmates of Le Court Cheshire home had revolted in 1972 after Sir Keith Joseph’s refusals I think of care inquiries at the Sue Ryder HQ of the charity. This led to the creation of disabled persons human rights movement. In fact Dr Laurence Clarke years later wrote a study of Leonard Cheshire versus the Disabled Persons Rights Movement.

By 1975 I would have thought the inmate revolt was sufficiently well known that Barbara Castle would have raised the care inquiries Labour MPs had called for only 3 years earlier. The European Convention of Human Rights provisions re inmates of Leonard Cheshire Homes being subjected to Tavistock Institute research commissioned by govt. The attorney general says the legal advice situation is still secret.

Dame Janet Smith conducting your Savile review at BBC ruled both the Sue Ryder deaths cases 1972 (and a related Regional Crime Squad inquiry into GP death registration malpractice) and the 6 years of questions about death certifuications at Beeches Ixworth as beyond her terms of reference SHIPMAN Inquiry. To examine and make recommendations to improve death registration practices.

Clearly now we can see that at the time, of the two dogs BBC and MIND that neither barked nor bit thus rather letting Mrs Castle off the hook, 1975/76 SAVILE was getting away with abuse at Sue Ryder Child Hospice Leeds.

It was always open to Mrs Castle to order care inquiry re Sue Ryder and the Beeches. But she did not. Even when one of the MPs calling for inquiry was Islington’s Michael O’Halloran. Islington where STRAW was a Labour Cllr with Mrs Hodge and PIE set up its HQ.

I think you should fwd this FOI to Dame Janet Smith as she may care to make a submission to the CSA Inquiry explaining how she was not in fact compromised to conduct Savile Inquiry at BBC.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Card

Paedophile register of controversial group ignored by police – allowing several members to commit abuse

20/3/16

Detectives knew of 300 names in a secret club that advocated sex with children

Police kept the secret membership list of a controversial group which advocated sex with children  “sit in a drawer”, leaving several of those named on it free to commit serious child abuse.

Detectives were given the membership list containing more than 300 names and addresses of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) group in the 1980s, but effectively did nothing with it.One member of the group, which publicly campaigned for adults to be allowed to have sex with children from the age of 10, was convicted 27 years after police were first given the names.

The list has now been passed to the independent Goddard inquiry

Claims of police inaction over child sex abuse allegations comes as Scotland Yard was reportedly planning to announce this week that it will end Operation Midland, its controversial investigations into allegations of VIP child sex abuse and murder.

Labour MP Tom Watson said: “The PIE list shows that there were clear intelligence lines that could have been investigated at the time.

One of those on the list and later convicted was Leo Adamson

Another PIE member later convicted was Charles Napier.

He bragged of easy access to young boys and how he could send obscene images back to Britain in diplomatic bags.

The Paedophile Information Exchange PIE was allegedly given £70,000 by the Home Office between 1977 and 1980 – the equivalent today of about £400,000.

A former Home Office worker revealed that Jim Callaghan’s Labour government and Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative administration, which took over in 1979, may have provided funding for PIE.

July 2000

A social worker who abused two boys at an Islington Council children’s home in the 1970s was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment earlier this week.

Michael Taylor pleaded guilty at London’s Snaresbrook crown court to seven counts of indecent assault at Gisburne House.

When he left Gisburne House he became deputy superintendent of Bersham Hall children’s home in North Wales where he repeatedly assaulted two 11-year-old boys in his care.

Taylor was arrested after the people he abused, now adults, went to the police. He was previously convicted of two indecent assaults in 1980. His name will be added to the sex offenders’ register.

Pedophiles arrested
‘more powerful than the Mafia
by Mark Burdman
On Feb. 2 , in London’ s Old Bailey court, four men were convicted for running a ring of pedophiles-adults who sex­ usually use children-which had recruited at least 150 young boys , some as young as nine, for repeated sodomic abuse.
It is the biggest ring of pedophiles yet uncovered in Britain.
British newspapers Feb. 3 said it had been run as a “Mafia­
like conspiracy. ” One man arrested was too frightened to
testify, declaring that the ring was “more powerful than the
Mafia. “
According to experts on child abuse in Britain, this case is only the beginning. Interviewed on British television Feb. 3 , Dianne Core, head of the Childwatch organization, stated that “people in high places” were involved in pedophiliac activities , and that the whole matter would “explode” during the coming months.
The London Daily Telegraph’s crime  correspondent reported Feb. 3 : “Despite the convictions , po­lice believe there is still a flourishing pedophile network in Britain, with a sophistication said to resemble the Mafia. “

The most prominent figure in the ring, Colin Peters , was trained at Oxford, and was formerly a senior adviser in the British Foreign Office. Following his Foreign Office work, he prosecuted cases for the British Customs and Excise.

Investigators working on the case had interrogated at least one senior member of the House of Lords , one vicar in West London, and officials in Whitehall , “but the police did not have sufficient evidence or manpower to pursue their suspi­cions ,” the Telegraph reported.
Alan Delaney, the official head of the ring, is a cleaning company director. Delaney would procure young boys for pedophiles , by putting job advertisements in the press .
The ring would also procure boys who were members of a junior soccer team.
Many of the youngsters had been at special boarding schools for educationally below-normal children.
Others were runaways , who were caught up by members of the Delaney-Peters ring, who would roam” the streets of Lon­don scouting for boys .
According to the Feb. 3 Telegraph account, the young boys were “passed around its members for sexual degradation and, when the attraction faded, abandoned to a life of pros­titution, drugs , and petty crime . . . . The boys were tempted off the unfamiliar London streets with promises of food, accommodation, money, and a sympathetic ear. Some were plied with drugs, including cocaine, and sexually assaulted while under their influence.”
When he was brought before presiding Judge Pownall for sentencing Feb. 3, Colin Peters was told: “On your own admission, you found boys to satisfy your lust. You were prepared to encourage them to drugs or to lace their drinks­ and you have made matters worse by trying to get witnesses not to attend court. You did that to save your own skin. That was disgraceful. You of all people should have known that. “
‘A permanent conspiracy’ British deputy police superintendent John Lewis , who oversaw the investigations , is calling on Scotland Yard to create a special squad to deal with pedophile rings. Lewis declared Feb. 2 that “these people are as organized and so­phisticated as any other  criminals, and are involved in a permanent conspiracy which is renewed daily as they hunt for new boys. They need to be targeted like bank robbers. It
is important that we should not feel complacent. Positive policing should be continued.”
British police investigators were reportedly angered by the light sentence meted out to Peters , Delaney, and their two  collaborators. The four received, in total, only 34 years of sentences. Peters received only 8 years, for combined charges of conspiracy to commit buggery (sodomy), buggery and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Delaney was jailed for 1 1 years , on conspiracy to commit buggery, indecent assault, taking indecent photographs , indecency with a child, and attempted buggery. One of the four was given only 6 years.
A senior British police officer told the Daily Express Feb.
4: “It should have been more. The damage these people have
done to young lives is very severe.”
In an editorial entitled, “Is This Justice?” the Express Feb. 4 called the sentences “woefully inadequate . . . weighed against the enormity of
their crimes and the emotional and physical damage they did
to their victims , some of whom were only nine years old. “
Moncini and the Satanist track
The London case has refocused attention on another recent case, in Trieste, Italy, involving one Alessandro Mon­cini, a businessman nabbed by law enforcement in the United States and convicted in 1988 for importing child pornography (although he received a paltry one-year sentence and was released “on good behavior” after serving less than three
months in jail).
Investigators in Trieste working on the Mon­cini case have recently been to the United States, attempting to accumulate more information on what they believe to be a “most exclusive ring of international pedophiles.”

Informed sources in Britain believe that the Delaney­ Peters ring and the Moncini-linked networks are connected,

and that both are part of an international pedophile conspir­acy.

U. S. law enforcement officials have in their possession tapes of Moncini attempting to procure a young girl, for Satanic-ritual abuse purposes.

Experts on ritual abuse stress that pedophile rings , as horrifying as they are in and of them­ selves , are actually fronts for, or extensions of, hard-core Satanist cults , for whom the pedophiles provide young boys.

In Britain, however, the Home Office has repeatedly
indicated its opposition to allowing the matter of satanism to
be pursued by police and in the courts.

Should this attitude continue, it will be impossible to crack the command-struc­ture controlling powerful pedophile rings.

Investigative leads

Experts in pedophilia and Satanism report to EIR, that
that the dossiers on previously publicized cases of European­
based pedophile rings have never been fully closed, and may
now be reopened. These involve pedophile rings that were
either cracked or exposed in the 1 986-87 period. Three of
them are worth noting:
On June 1 8, 1987, the head of the Belgian national
office of UNICEF was arrested for involvement in a large­
scale child pornography and pedophilia ring. Ring leader
Jozef Verbeeck had used his influential position in UNICEF
to procure children, often from broken homes, some as young
as eight months old, for some 400 wealthy clients across
Europe. The basement of UNICEF in Brussels was used to
store pornographic pictures of children.
• In spring-summer 1987, Dutch authorities uncovered
one of the worst cases of collective child sex abuse in record­
ed history. In a small town called Oode Pekala, during the
Easter holidays , a gang of pedophiles , dressed as clowns,
lured more than 70 children into taking part in pornographic
movies.
On Aug. 3, 1986, the Sunday Times of London “In­sight Team” exposed the activities of a secretive organization called the Spartacus Club, based near Amsterdam in Holland, which sent pedophile literature to 25 ,000 subscribers in Great Britain, and which specialized in procuring boys from the Philippines for pedophile activity. Headed by one John Stam­ford, the club was part of Spartacus International, which published homosexual literature and the Paedo Alert News, “a magazine about boy love. “


James Fraser Darling member of the Spartacus Club 33 years FOR THE SCOT WHO PREYED ON THAI KIDS – serves only 2

Sentenced to 33 years for paedophile offences in Thailand. Released on appeal and deported. Served a grand total of 2 years inside.

James Fraser Darling – who preyed on boys as young as eight – gives one-to-one lessons to the children of wealthy families.

Darling, 56, who lived in Morningside, Edinburgh, before going to the Far East, is working in a private language school in Zhuhai in south China.

We discovered the pervert – the son of an Oxford don – posing as a respectable teacher in the same week as pop paedophile Gary Glitter jetted back into Britain.

But while Glitter, 64, was placed on the UK sex offenders’ register, Darling is subject to no monitoring or restrictions.

At his school in Zhuhai, Darling, who is paid pounds 450 a month, refused to speak to the Sunday Mail.

School principal Li Lulin said she knew nothing about Darling’s crimes – but would not sack him.

She said: “Give him a break. His performance here has been good. I won’t tell parents.

“It’s not up to the Chinese government to punish him for his past. His contract finishes in September. I’ll let him go peacefully.”

A Foreign Office spokswoman said: “It is a matter for the Chinese authorities if they admit him to the country. We wouldn’t necessarily know if Mr Darling was there.”

At the Chinese Embassy in London, a spokeswoman refused to say whether any action would be taken to remove Darling.

 CHILD SEX SHAME OF SCOTS TOFF: He molested Thai lads, court told

Fraser-Darling and other Westerners allegedly molested the boys at the picnics and in Fraser- Darling’s cottage near the poor village of Rawai.

The boys showed investigators photos of themselves naked with the man they knew as “Uncle James”.

Image result for James Fraser Darling

More nude pictures were found at Fraser-Darling’s home, along with a Spartacus magazine article on “boy love” written by a J.Darling. Fraser-Darling denies being the author.

Fraser-Darling, who went to posh Repton school, was arrested in November 1995 after a colleague at the university reported him.

He was about to leave Thai-land for Cambodia when police swooped.

The pervert was taken from prison to court in his brown jail uniform early yesterday. His ankles were chained.

Fraser-Darling admitted he was a paedophile.

But he denied the charges, claiming he was a scapegoat in Thailand’s “witch- hunt” against child sex perverts.

Fraser-Darling’s father is Scots academic Sir Frank Fraser-Darling, an expert on Scottish birds and Hebridean wildlife.

He also has a brother in the Diplomatic Corps.

Someone was pulling strings to get him out of Thailand.

A PAEDOPHILE has arrived in Scotland to claim a family inheritance – still lying about his sleazy past.

Toff James Fraser Darling, 51, is in the Highlands to get what is left of his family’s cash after being freed from a Bangkok jail.

But while the former teacher claims he won an appeal against all convictions, the truth is that the Thais kicked him out after only reducing his jail sentence.

Fraser Darling was left a small fortune while languishing behind bars and used some of the money to win his freedom.

Now the pervert, who preyed on young boys in the seedy resort of Phuket, is staying at an pounds 18-a-night guest house in Forres near his former family home while he plans his future.

Local residents are unaware that he is a convicted paedophile.

 LIES OF DEPRAVED TOFF

Fraser Darling’s father, Sir Frank, died in 1979 at the age of 73 after his retirement as chief officer of the Imperial Bureau of Animal Genetics in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh-born Christina was his third wife and met him when she was taking care of his children after his second wife’s death.

Since Fraser Darling’s arrest he has been too ashamed to contact his brother Richard, 52, a senior Foreign Office intelligence officer, and his sister Francesca, 46, who lives in the USA.

He says he has spent his time in Scotland trying to register for work after a lifetime working abroad in Thailand, Iran, Sri Lanka and El Salvador.

Frank Fraser Darling lived on the island of Tanera Mor.

Tanera Mor is  notable as the location for Frank Fraser Darling’s book Island Years.

Accused Scot was ‘like an uncle’ to Thai boys

THE paedophile son of a Scottish knight was jailed for 33 years in Thailand yesterday for preying on young boys.

Teacher James Fraser Darling, 47, whose father, a leading academic – was an authority on Scottish wildlife, was chained by the ankles as he was led away to the cells wearing regulation brown prison shirt and shorts.

The appalling sex acts he was convicted of were carried out on boys from a sea gypsy community at a Thai beach resort.

He was sentenced to five years each on nine counts of separating children from their parents.

Darling is the son of Sir Frank Fraser Darling, an Oxford don and expert on Scottish bird-life and Hebridean wildlife, who became chief officer of the Imperial Bureau of Animal Genetics in Edinburgh. He died in 1979.

Darling’s mother, Lady Christina Darling of Forres, Moray, died while he was on trial.

His brother Richard, a senior intelligence officer specialising in the war against drugs, works for the Foreign Office in Britain and did not attend the court.

Richard Ogilby Leslie Fraser Darling Counsellor, Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Pervert Darling, a London University arts graduate, travelled the world teaching in Brazil and Sri Lanka before arriving in Thailand four years ago.

A book published by the Spartacus organisation – a European group linked to paedophilia – was found in his house, and a chapter inside, written by J Darling, described Roman orgies with young boys.

However, Darling denied that he was the author of the work.

The court’s decision was welcomed by FACE, the coalition against Child Exploitation, which has been monitoring suspected paedophiles in Thailand.

Almost everybody on Phuket knew James Fraser Darling.
 How disgusting can you get 2 years then deported back too our country!! Bloody loose around innocent children! Thank you for sharing this



CHARLES’S SEX FILES

Prince Charles has been given access to secret files on the sex lives of the world’s most powerful men and wome – to make sure he is fully informed when he finally becomes king.

The Sun 10-14-12, p9

Prince Charles has been given access to secret files on the sex lives of the world’s most powerful men and women, to make sure he is fully informed when he finally becomes king.

The Crown Jewels of classified intelligence, normally seen only by the queen and senior ministers, are understood to contain details of Princess Diana’s death and the IRA assassination of Lord Mountbatten. he will also see files on UK security threats.

a senior whitehall source said “ he can see everything but not the files on him and Camilla as he is not allowed to see the dossier where he is the subject”

ww:

The inference must be that maj has this information – or how could she be the reigning mollusc?

Which means she would have had all the info from Dickens Dossiers- the dossiers to Maggie Thatcher – Blunt – Prime – Hayman- – all the MP’s so far named – and those as yet unnamed-

and – of course

Although he had previously named senior diplomat Sir Peter Hayman as a paedophile, he never made good on his promise to expose the eight public figures. Just over two months after making the threat, Geoffrey Dickens’s name and address was found in a ‘hit list’ in a notebook belonging to Arthur Hutchinson, who was wanted for three brutal murders and was already on ‘a serious sex charge’.

During his trial, on 11 September 1984, Hutchinson accused Mike Barron, then a reporter with the Sunday Mirror, of committing the murders.

He even pointed to him in court, saying “That’s your killer there”. He explained his prints had been on the champagne bottle because he had picked it up to use as a weapon to defend himself against Mr Barron. Hutchinson claimed that the media had had a vendetta against him, and that:

“Every week for the last 10 months, that man there has been going to my mother’s house threatening her. I was frightened for her and wanted to get the truth out. There’s your killer.”- Arthur Hutchinson

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.’

Another name that appears is that of a known paedophile, the late senior diplomat Sir Peter Hayman

The Napier and Hayman families had a long record of imperial service at the highest levelMany members of the family were senior Freemasons:

Sir Peter’s grandfather Canon Henry Hayman was Provincial Grand Master of Nottinghamshire and a Past Grand Chaplain of England; while Charles Napier’s ancestors included a Grand Master Mason of Scotland.

Charles Napier’s parents were cousins: his maternal grandfather Brigadier Arthur Napier had top level intelligence connections as military adviser to the Ministry of Supply.

Embedded image permalink

At the time of his paedophile offences, Napier’s  cousin Rosemary Blomefield was married to Sir Peter Hayman, a senior MI6 officer who was later himself exposed as a paedophile though never prosecuted.

Napier was jailed for 13 years in 2014 for hundreds of sex attacks on schoolboys.

Peter Righton was a founder of PIE, Napier its one-time treasurer. Righton, incredibly, was also one of Britain’s leading child protection specialists when Virginia Bottomley was Health Secretary

The file also contains a John Napier, who had been convicted for running a “child brothel” in London in the early 1970s.

“The police had the lists from the late 1980s…The files sat in a drawer, metaphorically speaking, until 2012, when Operation Fairbank decided to go back and have a look.

Jimmy Savile and Keith Harding on BBC’s Jim’ll Fix It

Keith Harding invited to show to mend a 13-year-old girl’s music box, which her brother says was a “set-up” by the production team.

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

He was a “schedule 1” offender – meaning his convictions remained on his police file for life.

But he was later given the Freedom of the City of London and became a member of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, meeting business and political figures at the height of his career.

The clockmaker and music box expert ran a museum regularly visited by children, despite social services being aware 20 years ago of his convictions for child abuse.

He had been convicted of indecent assault against four children aged eight and nine in 1958 when he was a teacher. 

Harding was influential among high-profile paedophiles

I stumbled across this tweet referring to John Whittingdale having used the alias John Napier ‘in those days’.

His name appeared ‘namely’ right next to that of his half-brother Charles Napier who affectionately referred to Whippo in correspondence as ‘Little Johnny’, a man who he would entrust stuff to for safekeeping. Charles, a prolific abuser, was a very close friend of Peter Righton.

Paedophile Mason Keith Harding ran lodge set up for GCHQ

ONE OF Britain’s most influential paedophiles was the head of a Masonic lodge founded and frequented by GCHQ spies.

A PIE list seized in 1984 records Harding, as member 329

http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/579523/Paedophile-Mason-lodge-GCHQ

The pervert met regularly with MPs Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith at his world-renowned workshop. 
John Whittingdale was pps to Leon Brittan

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

along with key members of the vile Paedophile Information Exchange

14-PIE-list.jpg

There are 307 names on the list seen by The IoS, including four women.

There are several members living abroad, and one of them currently appears to be a children’s entertainer.

Some of the PIE members also feature on a list amassed by the US Customs child pornography and protection unit which collected a list of British customers of American suppliers of child abuse images.

The US list was also supplied to UK law enforcement agencies but little if anything was done about it.

One of those on both lists is former school teacher Terence Waters. In 1994, he was jailed for 10 years for possessing indecent images of children and sexually abusing a 10-year-old boy.

Leading anti-child sex abuse campaigners said that they were astonished at the police inaction over the PIE membership list.

“We know that those who look at sexual images of children often go on to become ‘contact’ offenders, so had more action been taken as a result of the police having the lists, many children would not have been abused, as is clear from the case of Adamson. There still seems to be a mindset that says we should all just move on and leave the past in the past, yet people have a lifetime of trauma to deal with and the police should have recognised that in their handling of these cases.”

Jo Richardson MP, the National Council for Civil Liberties and the Labour Campaign for Gay Rights are among the several individuals and organisations that have protested to the Lord Chancellor, on PIE’s behalf, over a judge’s comments at a recent Old Bailey trial.

They are demanding that the judge be disciplined, and are supporting the Exchange in its claim that the remarks may well have been a “serious breach of legal ethics.

When sentencing Andre Stephen Thorne (21) to 3 years for theft and the attempted blackmail of a PIE applicant, the judge, Mr Justice King-Hamilton, said that PIE had “access to potential dynamite,” and added: “On the face of it, some sort of an offence is being committed by the person or persons running this organisation (THE SUN, Feb. 4th).. I wonder if the membership forms are collected from members of the public for the purposes of blackmail (SOUTH LONDON PRESS)?

PIE’s reaction was fast and furious. Secretary, Tom O’Carroll drafted an immediate letter to THE GUARDIAN; and on March the 17th, Deputy Leader, Warren Middleton despatched a press release announcing that the group would lodge the “strongest possible protest” with the Lord Chancellor and the Home Secretary.

Soon after, PIE’s Chairperson, Keith Hose, contacted the NCCL, finally requesting Jo Richardson (Labour, Barking) to table a question in the Commons. She declined, but has since filed an official complaint with Elwyn Jones.

The first of the protests, from the NCCL (29/3/’77), described the comments as “extremely unfortunate” and accused the judge of “misusing his position to make comments which were unwarranted and without any apparent foundation.”

Prompted by the reply which, said a Council official, was “totally unsatisfactory,” the NCCL then approached Lord Beaumont of Whitley asking him to raise the matter in the Lords. But he, too, declined.

Now, the Council is seeking the advice of Lord Hailsham, himself a former Lord Chancellor, and will act in accordance with his reply.”

Acting Detective Chief Inspector Keith Braithwaite said: ‘Napier is an arrogant, controlling and manipulative individual who has shown no remorse for the serious sexual offences he committed against young and vulnerable victims.

He has offended throughout most of his adult life; exploiting opportunities to continue his criminality against children through his employment and standing within society.

Mr Napier said:

“I agreed to take part in the literary festival months before I knew where the talk would be held. Then it never crossed my mind that it would be problem.

“I am devastated that I cannot be involved with the APS and with A Winter’s Tale anymore. I think I might not ever be able to take part in something like this again.

“It is sad that something like this has happened

I hope at least that I will be able to remain in Sherborne

  • Chris Davis, 53, was dismissed from £34,000-a-year Sherborne School
  • His personal assistant Micaila Vivier was then fired after ‘leaking emails’
  • She claimed Mr Davis was sacked after disagreement with governors
  • Ms Vivier said headmaster wanted pupil to move to a different school  

 A statement posted to the school’s website insisted: ‘There is absolutely no element whatsoever of untoward activity on the part of the outgoing Headmaster, or any other member of the staff, that has led to or contributed to this decision.’

….I think it was odd that he was dismissed after only three days of term and it would be helpful if the governors had told us more about the reason behind his sudden departure. It would put an end to what will doubtless be endless speculation.”

Speaking to The Times, Mr Davis’s wife Innes, 52, declined to comment on the reasoning behind the departure.

Mr Davis previously taught at Eton, where he himself was educated. He joined after a career in the City, and was the head of Warre House, of which David Cameron was a member in the 1980s.

David Aaronovitch’s column “Let’s See Some Evidence. Then We Can Panic” published in the Times on July 10th. As a general rule of thumb, anyone who refers to public inquiries and investigative journalism into organised child sexual abuse rings as “paedogeddon” is already starting from a position of disbelieving the statements of victims of child sexual abuse.

Letwin insisted on giving £3 million of public money to Kids Company in July, against the advice of Whitehall mandarins.

The BBC has commissioned a documentary about the charity, scheduled to be shown next year. Insiders have expressed surprise about this, given that £330,000-a-year BBC executive Alan Yentob was Kids Company chairman of trustees between 2003 and 2015.


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.’

Celebrities and the royals were bewitched by Camila's charms (she is pictured with Prince Charles)

Swathes of London would ‘descend into savagery’. There would be riots in the streets, and widespread looting. Angry mobs would carry out ‘arson attacks’ on government buildings.

This apocalyptic scenario formed the basis of an extraordinary document sent to the Government from the email account of Kids Company chief Camila Batmanghelidjh.

As a sort of ransom note to ministers, signed by her charity’s chairman Alan Yentob, its message was simple: hand over a £3 million emergency grant to my charity or London will burn.

To a degree, it had its desired effect because that money was promptly given.

Yet those millions weren’t enough. Kids Company hit the wall. Around £1.2 million of the £3 million was lost. And now three major inquiries are investigating the collapsed charity, which over the past decade has got through more than £30 million in public funds.

Born in Tehran on New Year’s Day 1963, Camila Batmanghelidjh is one of four children of Fereydoon Batman-Ghelidj, a property developer and doctor who belonged to one of pre-revolutionary Iran’s wealthiest and most influential families.

Her uncle, Hooshang, was the Iranian ambassador to Turkey. Grandfather Mehdi was a wealthy property developer, too. And a great uncle, Nader, was an army general and loyal henchman of the country’s ruling Shah.

In interviews, her mother, Lucile, has been described as ‘a Belgian aristocrat’

Liz Davies comment

Keith Harding’s shop closed just a year before I was working in Islington in my social work office in the same road.

Another centre of PIE was also just a street away.

Some of the children who were being sexually exploited in that area may have known about this shop but I had no idea about it at the time.

They will now be in their 40s. Some of the social work staff must have known about the shop as Harding made a point of having a high profile locally. The Islington child abuse story reached a peak in 1992 and again in 2003 but it isn’t over as yet.

Dr Liz Davies, who originally blew the whistle on the borough’s paedophile ring, says

I firmly believe there was a link between Savile and Islington children’s homes.”

Postcards From Jersey To Islington

The astonishing thing regarding the exchange “holidays” for care home children that took place between the child abuse hot spots of Islington care homes and Haut de la Garenne in Jersey is the distinct lack of evidence.

The exchange trips took place and yet there appears to be no official record. That lack of bureaucratic paperwork  in itself raises extremely disturbing questions, regardless of whether child abuse took place, as former residents claim.

How can young children be transported from one local authority across the English Channel to another without any record of the trips existing ?

Either the exchange trips did not take place (yet we know they did) or someone has been extremely careless or negligent with the paperwork.

In 1987, Harding moved to Gloucestershire where social services were aware nearly 20 years ago of his criminal convictions.

Gloucestershire County Council declined to comment on the fact that he continued to run a music box museum in Northleach, which was regularly visited by children, until his death aged 82 in June.

Lord Justice Fulford was revealed to have been a founder of a ‘defence committee’ for the Paedophile Information Exchange while it was openly calling for the age of consent to be cut to just four.

He discussed holding courtroom protests at meetings with PIE chairman Tom O’Carroll – who was jailed for two years in 1981 for conspiracy to corrupt public morals – and wrote articles claiming O’Carroll’s trial was an ‘act of oppression’ because the child sex campaigners only wanted to ‘make friends’.

2014

Lord Justice Fulford, named as an adviser to the Queen

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/uk/judge-sorry-after-pie-support-claim-30076221.html

Press release

Investigatory Powers Commissioner appointed: Lord Justice Fulford

The Prime Minister has approved the appointment of Lord Justice Fulford as the first Investigatory Powers Commissioner.

Judge Adrian Fulford – Can we trust him?

Judge Fulford

Judge Fulford presided over Roger Laing 2015 Oct 2 Court of Appeal  [7] No aspersions are being made about whether the right decision was made in this particular case of child abuse.

However the appeal brought to mind that Judge Fulford was accused in 2014 by the Mail of backing the Paedophile Information Exchange PIE and being in groups that supported it. High Court judge and the child sex ring: Adviser to Queen was founder of paedophile support group to keep offenders out of jail [8]

He has apologised for some of his links but says he has no memories of others, states the Guardian,  Judge apologises for involvement with NCCL group linked to PIE [9]

The Mail on Sunday states “But he said he had “no memory” of being a founder member of the Conspiracy Against Public Morals, which the Mail continues was set up to defend PIE leaders facing criminal charges.”

An official investigation by the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office took place by Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore. It concluded on 18 June 2014, that the allegations against Fulford were “without substance” and he “was not and had never been a supporter of PIE or its aims”. Following his exoneration, Fulford resumed sitting as a judge on the full range of appeals [10]

Unfortunately the Ministry of Justice and the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office have not been transparent about the investigation.

They issued a dismissive press statement [11a] and below, stating that Fulford was exonerated after after two “lengthy” interviews with “searching questions” put to him by fellow Justice, Justice Lord Kerr, a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom to which Adrian Fulford reponded!

 

How much easier if their names were given as well..

Just for information the Lord Chief Justice was Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, who is John Thomas, Baron Thomas of Cwmgiedd [18] and without the titles just plain John Thomas. The Lord Chancellor was just plain Chris Grayling  [19]. Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore turns out to be Brian Kerr, Baron Kerr of Tonaghmore or just plain Brian Kerr [20]

The Ministry of Justice has refused to publish a copy of the report on grounds of confidentiality and personal information [11b]. They even took the statement down from their website after a year as revealed by this FOI request [11]

Whilst the Mail group is often gossip from the gutter, the MOJ statement, undated and unsigned is breathtaking in its arrogance. It does not even address the issue of group that Adrian Fulford is supposed to have founded – “Conspiracy against Public Morals” which supported PIE.

It is not denied that Fulford (Adrian) was there at the third meeting on 11 Sept 1979 nor even that he founded the group. In October 1979 the Mail says Fulford wrote a full-page article in gay rights magazine Broadsheet, in which he was described as ‘the founder’ of the PIE support group.

Among those also attending the 11 Sept meeting were Sandy Marks and Tim Brown.

Sandy Marks and Tim Brown were both members of the radical Fallen Angels collective who according to Charlotte Russell, the pre-eminent researcher in this field, “the Fallen Angels took it upon themselves to call the Gay Movement to account, their final three sentences underlined concluding their case” [16]

  • “The question is whether gay complicity in the oppression of children and pedophiles is to persist”
  • “The ILGA must acknowledge adult-child relations as crucial to the development of a coherent sexual politics.”
  • “We demand the right to form alternative relations with kids – on their terms, and to affirm the erotic in those relations.”

Tim Brown wrote “Show me an adult who is not a paedophile…Sex with children is wonderful… Children are wonderful they should not be subjected to any kind of guilt trip or legal shit about their bodies and their sexuality. It is theirs and nobody else’s.” Tim Brown, London N19 [16]

Sandy Marks chaired the Islington social services committee during the children’s homes scandal of the 1990s, attended a conference with a radical pro-paedophile activist group called Fallen Angels in 1980.

Her other paedophilic  links are explored in this article Islington kids’ homes scandal: Shame of ex-mayor Sandy Marks’ pro-paedophile past [17]

These articles by Ms Russell confirm the agenda of the Fallen Angels and much else

  • CONSPIRACY AGAINST PUBLIC MORALS: PAEDOPHILIA & PUBLIC MORALS (OCTOBER 1980) [13] 
  •  IGA Conference April 1980: The Fallen Angels take PIE’s fight to Barcelona  [14]
  • Little Angels? A letter to Socialist Challenge from Fallen Angel Tim Brown (October 1979) [15]
  • Fallen Angels: Paedophilia – Summary Submission to the ILGA Conference, Barcelona 1980 [16]
  • Islington kids’ homes scandal: Shame of ex-mayor Sandy Marks’ pro-paedophile past [17] 

“.. Islington had become a focal point for the politicisation of paedophilia,” said Ms Russell.

Although Adrian Fulford is reported as saying that Tom O’Carrolls presence ‘left me feeling extremely uncomfortable’, he does not mention that the Fallen Angels made him feel at all queasy.

Sandy Marks has said various things about the time, one of which is she cannot remember events of this time due to illness. Islington Council have said they are shocked and that there will be an investigation by a “top lawyer”. It is not clear who the “top” lawyer is, or how “top” they will be, whether the investigation has begun or when the Report will be published.

It is essential that Adrian Fulford must give evidence to this inquiry. He clearly would have first hand evidence, from the inside, of what happened at the time. Perhaps he could be “top witness”.

Clearly if someone of his position does not give evidence, then the Islington investigation cannot be remotely to be said to be a thorough investigation. It would be negligent not to.

It would also be very interesting as to what Sandy Marks might have to say about Adrian Fulford..

As long as the MOJ is secretive and dismissive, and justice is not seen to be done then there naturally will be suspicions. The public obviously do not know the detail of what was considered, but would be right to demand further information. Is it right that Judges investigate themselves and then publish the report? These Judges could even be friends.

Ministry of Justice and Child Protection Policy

Also worrying is that the Ministry of Justice does not have any child protection policy  [11c]

  1. Can you email me the Child Protection Policy of the Ministry of Justice?”

The MoJ adheres to the requirements of the Children’s Acts 1989 and 2004. To establish whether the information was held I conducted a thorough search, and made enquires within Judicial Office as well as Civil and Family Justice Policy areas.  It may help if I clarify that the information being requested is not held by MoJ because there is no legal or business requirement for MoJ to do so.  There is no MoJ wide Child Protection Policy each business area would consider the need for a specific policy given the context of the work which that area carries out.  The work of the MoJ is vast and diverse and as such one policy would not necessarily encompass the entirety of its business sufficiently and different areas of the MoJ have policies designed to address their unique needs.

Judges and Blackmail

If a Judge was a paedophile supporter it would be quite within the bounds of possibility, in fact the very MO of the “security” services that the judge was blackmailed by the deep state, the secret services. He could be put into positions of power to do the bidding of those very services. Indeed the secret services are often accused of running the child abuse networks for this very purpose.

Lord Justice Fulford, is now a Lord Justice of Appeal and as of 1 January 2016, is the Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales. He was also appointed as the Investigatory Powers Commissioner for a 3-year term on 3 March 2017 [10]

Fulford’s job is to “authorise and oversee the use of snooping powers by public authorities” [12].

Some people may still be worried that he is “authorising and overseeing” authorities who could have control over him by blackmail.

Some may be worried that as Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales, Sir Adrian Fulford has not been publicly exonerated of being free of any sinister influence over him in the public positions he holds.

Is it right that a Judicial Report about the links to paedophile and child abusing groups, of a man who is Investigatory Powers Commissioner and the Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales, is kept secret?

Shame on the murky Judicial Conduct Investigations Office and MOJ.

The Judicial Conduct Investigations Office  – a body that is supposed to investigate complaints into the judiciary.

  • Is that not extra reason for justice to be seen to be done?
  • Is that not extra reason to be transparent?
  • Is it the same old story that power breeds arrogance?
  • Is it the illusion of justice that is being propagandised to the people?
  • Are the judiciary being blackmailed by the deep state?
  • How do we know that the following is not the true scenario?

Brian had a couple of chats with his friend Adrian, perhaps at the urinals down at the club. Adrian replied. Brian told John and Chris who were in the bar, that there was nothing to it.  Squeaky clean old boy, squeaky clean. It was all dressed up as legit, titles added, committee names, hyperbole, as per, so on and so forth. Jobs a good un.

John, Chris, Brian and Adrian all know Andy. Its in the interest of national security, after all.

Apparently so is raping children….

If its not, then the Report of the Inquiry into Sir Adrian Fulford must be published.

Keith Harding was given the Freedom of the City of London and made a member of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers. 

He moved to Gloucester in 1987 after PIE disbanded, setting up Keith Harding’s World of Mechanical Music, a museum in Northleach, near Cheltenham.

He was exposed as a member of PIE last November when footage emerged of him appearing alongside Jimmy Savile on a Christmas special of Jim’ll Fix It. 

It later transpired that he had been convicted of indecent assault against four children aged eight and nine in 1958 when he was a teacher. 

He apparently confessed to a friend he had the list of names kept in a safe.

One of his staff, who worked for him between 1980 and 1987, said: “Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith were both regular visitors to the shop. Usually they would come in via the side door, other times they would ring the bell at the front entrance and come in. “They’d straight away ask for Keith who would be coming down the stairs.“Then they would then either go up to his office for a private meeting or they’d go out for several hours.” The former worker added: “The shop had many high profile customers, including the Royals, because we were one of the few antique dealers in the world that specialised in restoring clocks, music boxes and automatons. “It’s only now, with what I know about Brittan and Smith, and of course Keith, that has made me wonder what they were doing. Jeremy Thorpe too was an occasional visitor.” link

The Impostor


The Chairman of PIE told the Daily Mirror: “There would be no penalty for a paedophile having sex with a child under three years old. But he would probably be prevented from it by a system of injunctions which we would like to see brought in.”

Secret service infiltrated paedophile group to ‘blackmail establishment’

2014

BRITISH security services infiltrated and funded the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange in a covert operation to identify and possibly blackmail establishment figures, a Home Office whistleblower alleges.

The former civil servant has told detectives investigating the activities of paedophiles in national politics that the Metropolitan Police’s Special Branch was orchestrating the child-sex lobbying group in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

It emerged late last year that PIE was twice gave amounts of £35,000 in Home Office funding between 1977 and 1980, the £70,000 total equivalent to over £400,000 in today’s money.

Until now, speculation about the grant has centred on Clifford Hindley, the late Home Office manager who approved the payments. However, the whistleblower told the Sunday Express he thought higher and more sinister powers were at play.

He has given a formal statement to that effect to detectives from Operation Fernbridge, which is looking into allegations of historic sex abuse at the Elm Guest House in south-west London.

PIE, now considered one of the most notorious groups of the era, had gained respectability in political circles. Its members are said to have included establishment figures, and disgraced Liberal MP Cyril Smith was a friend of founder member Peter Righton.

In 1981, Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens used Parliamentary privilege to name Sir Peter Hayman, the deputy director of MI6, as a member of PIE and an active paedophile. In 1983 Mr Dickens gave the Home Office a dossier of what he claimed was evidence of a paedophile network of “big, big names, people in positions of power, influence and responsibility”. The Home Office says the dossier no longer exists.

Whistleblower Mr X, whose identity we have agreed to protect, became a very senior figure in local government before retiring a few years ago. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, he was a full-time consultant in the Home Office’s Voluntary Services Unit run by Clifford Hindley.

In 1979 Mr X was asked to examine a funding renewal application for PIE, but he became concerned because the organisation’s goal of seeking to abolish the age of consent “conflicted” with the child protection policies of the Department of Health and Social Security and asked for a meeting with Mr Hindley, his immediate boss.

Mr X recalled: “I raised my concerns, but he told me that I was to drop them. Hindley gave three reasons for this. He said PIE was an organisation with cachet and that its work in this field was respected.

“He said this was a renewal of an existing grant and that under normal Home Office practice a consultant such as myself would not be involved in the decision-making process.

“And he said PIE was being funded at the request of Special Branch which found it politically useful to identify people who were paedophiles. This led me not to pursue my objections. At that time, questioning anything to do with Special Branch, especially within the Home Office, was a ‘no-no’.

“I was under the clear belief that I was being instructed to back off and that his reference to Special Branch was expected to make me to do so.

“Hindley didn’t give me an explicit explanation of what Special Branch would do with information it gleaned from funding PIE, but I formed the belief that it was part of an undercover operation or activity. I was aware a lot of people in the civil service or political arena had an interest in obtaining information like that which could be used as a sort of blackmail.”

He said he asked for a file the Home Office kept on PIE, but his request was refused. However, he was certain then Tory Home Office Minister Tim Raison, who died in 2011, must have signed the 1980 funding application.

Mr X has given a formal written statement to the inquiry set up last year into former Home Office links with PIE but has refused to meet the inquiry in person because he fears “repercussions” under the Official Secrets Act.

Grants ‘help child sex group’

 16 Dec 1977  The Guardian

grants-help-pie

Two trusts which receive grants from Government funds are supporting the Paedophile Information Exchange – the group which wants to legalise sex between adults and children -an MP claimed in the Commons yesterday

Sir Bernard Braine (C, SE Essex) said he had evidence that both the Albany Trust and the Princedale Trust gave encouragement and publicity to PIE.

Home Office Minister of State, Mr Brynmor John, told Sir Bernard that the Voluntary Services Unit had paid £43,625 to the Albany Trust and £86,000 to the Princedale Trust since 1974.

A final grant of over 3,000 was still due to Albany and the Education Department was giving it £5,717 in 1976/77.

Later, Mr John told Mr Alan Clark (C, Sutton) that he was still examining information on child pornography. On the legal side there were difficulties…He was having discussions with Mr Cyril Townsend (C, Bexleyheath), who has a Private Members Bill on the subject.

Antony Grey: The Trust’s involvement with this group occurred after its then chairman, Harold Haywood, OBE; and I attended a workshop on Sexual Minorities organised by MIND (the National Association for Mental Health) some two years ago (1975)…

Westminster paedophiles: Bulic Forsythe, when PIE went gay and the death of scepticism

Operation Cayacos: investigating allegations of a paedophile ring linked to dead convicted paedophile Peter Righton – a founding member of the Paedophile Information Exchange. PIE suggested that, as homosexuals had become “gays”, paedophiles should be called “kind persons”.  It wasn’t rape, they argued. It was just sexual freedom. PIE members  – which numbers around 450 at it speak – were keen to be seen as an oppressed group, like homosexuals.

PIE got a good write up in Community Care, the social workers’ trade paper. A four-page article in 1977 mused “Should we pity the paedophiles?”

Dr Ken Plummer

Paedophilia in Academia: Dr Ken Plummer, University of Essex

The German Green Party recently apologised for their part in promoting paedophilia. Read more The Green’s co-leader, Jurgen Trittin, was accused of signing off a 1981 pamphlet calling for the decriminalisation of sexual acts between adults and children “that occur without the use of threat or force”. People who promote paedophilia may not be paedophiles themselves, but they provide paedophiles with the intellectual justification to perpetrate crimes against children.

In the UK it is a crime to incite racial hatred – why doesn’t a similar law apply for inciting sexual crimes against children?

Dr. Ken Plummer has been associated with the University of Essex since 1975, and was once Head of the Sociology Department. In his biography he states that his main interests “have always been in the development of a humanistic method and theory to help towards a better social world where there will be less socially produced suffering”. University of Essex website

It could be said that he has done the opposite – he has helped create more suffering by promoting paedophilia and providing ‘academic’ opinions which support the views of those who sexually abuse children. In fact he openly admits his intentions:

By applying sociology to the field of paedophilia we may partially relativise it, humanise it, normalise it, and politicise it. (1)

Ken Plummer attempted to redefine the language surrounding child sexual abuse. In his world, child victims are ‘partners’, sexual abuse is ‘consensual’, a  child being sexually abused by an adult is ‘a relationship’, and long term effects of sexual abuse are mostly ‘a myth’.

…there is the stereotype that the child is “innocent”, “uninvolved” and “non-participating”: this can be so (notably in rape cases) but this is usually not the case with paedophilia. (2)

A sixth stereotype suggests that the consequences to the child of paedophilia are devastating. They can be, but frequently they are not. This is a complex issue and three crucial distinctions must be made here; the first requires distinguishing between experiences that are consensual (paedophilia) and those that are not (child rape)… (3)

His language is very similar in tone to that of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), an organisation that campaigned for the age of consent to be reduced to 4 years old, effectively legalising paedophilia. This might not be a coincidence, as it has been said that Ken Plummer was member no. 236 of PIE, and regularly corresponded with other members of PIE, including Peter Righton.

Righton was a highly respected child care expert who had helped create a network of paedophile academics and intellectuals that preyed on children in schools and children’s homes across the UK. BBC Inside Story: The Secret Life of a Paedophile

paedophile-information-exchange

Plummer and Righton both contributed to a book called Perspectives on Paedophilia. The book was a supposedly objective look at paedophilia, and was designed to be used on social work training courses. If Plummer was a member of PIE at the time, or was supportive of their views, he should have declared this interest and therefore his lack of objectivity.

He refers to paedophiles sexual abusing children under 6 years old as ‘a relationship’, and uses inverted commas around the word ‘victim’:

But again, studies suggest that relationships with children under 6 are rare – and that relationships with early adolescents are the most common. (4)

A second group of assumptions highlights the nature of childhood and “child victims”. (5)

Plummer concedes the shortcomings of research of the subject of paedophilia, but is still happy to cite outdated studies if they can be used to support the sexual abuse of children.

While there is little scientific research in this field – and what exists usually depends upon biased psychiatric and prison samples… (6)

He uses this inadequate ‘research’ to undermine the fact that sexual abuse causes devastating harm to the child, and instead lays the blame for any harm with parents, the police, and the courts:

A further image concerns the impact of paedophilia on the child: in the short run, the child is traumatized; and in the long run, seriously damaged. Perhaps surprisingly, the evidence does not support this. In the short run, studies suggest that children’s problems often flow from the reactions of parents who respond to the event with such horror that it elevates the significance of the experience in the child’s eye. The significance can be compounded by police and court action. In the long run, the “victims” are generally shown to lead “normal” lives. In Gagnon’s sample of 333 “victims”, only 5 percent had damaged adult lives – but even “damage” could have had diverse origins. (7)

Plummer goes on to deny that paedophiles are usually interested in sex with children, that it is forced upon the child, and that it is exploitative. Note his use of ‘quotes’ from members of the public in a blatant attempt to demonstrate how uneducated and vulgar the opponents of paedophilia are.

Three further ‘myths’ focus upon the kinds of relationship between paedophile and child. It is usually seen as a coital relationship (interestingly, the press convert “paedophilia” (literally “love of children”) into “child-sex”, so people could remark: “They’re after fucking little kids, ain’t they”); as a forced relationship (“It’s an open door to rape”; “If you’ve got a little child 4 years old and you think one of these bastards is gonna rape the child, and it’s gonna be legal…”); and as an exploitative one. (8)

Despite his admission about the shortcomings of research on paedophilia, Plummer cites an obscure 1964 study by Mohr to challenge the idea that paedophiles use force and to lay blame on the child for inviting the abuse:

Indeed, in some cases the child can be seen as “inviting” the relationship, and – according to Mohr – “most children could have avoided the experience if they wanted to”. The Kinsey study also noted: “In our total of 18,000 interviews, no man or woman reported being victimised by a child.” (9) See also Kinsey’s Paedophiles

Plummer also frequently cites Mohr in ‘Constructing a Sociological Baseline’ to peddle the lie that victims of child abuse are ‘willing partners’:

A third stereotype suggests that the sex act is forced on the child and is uncontrolled. It is not. Again Mohr (1968)…observes that paedophilia occurs in part with the cooperation of the child either out of sexual curiosity or out of emotional need. It is comparatively rare that the sex act is forced upon the child. (10)

Plummer refers to “many case histories” which he claims prove that “children have been greatly assisted in their development” by being sexually abused by an adult (11), and denies that the abused child is exploited by the adult:

It is difficult, then, within a paedophile relationship to be very clear about the balance of power. Certainly if one just studies existing relationships, the power balance can be very ambiguous – for maybe as Tom O’Carroll suggests “Power in a consensual relationship resides with the party that needs the relationship less”, and very often that is the child. Sometimes, then, it is possible for the child to “exploit” the adult – financially and emotionally. (12)

Please note that Tom O’Carroll was Chairman of the Paedophile Information Exchange and in 2006 was convicted for distributing a collection of 50,000 images of child abuse. He was arrested after undercover police infiltrated a group known as the International Paedophile Child Emancipation Group and its subsidiary, Gentlemen with an Interesting Name.“According to police O’Carroll saw the groups as a base for an “international secret society” of “academic” child abusers…Children, mainly boys and some as young as six, had been filmed and photographed being raped and tortured.” BBC News

In University contracts there is usually a clause about ‘not bringing the University into any disrepute’.

The University also has a duty of care to the students.

It is time that the University of Essex’s Vice Chancellor and Governors addressed these issues with Dr Plummer who should surely, like the German Green Party, be asked to apologise for the pro-paedophile views he expressed so forcefully in the above writings.

The essays quoted above are dated and it’s possible that Dr Plummer may have altered his views since then, as there is much more academic material available now, as well as many first hand accounts from survivors which explain the hugely damaging long term effects of child sexual abuse.

Questions for the Vice Chancellor of University of Essex

– Do you understand that Dr Plummer’s views as expressed in the above texts could be said to bring the University into disrepute?

– If thse same views have been presented to students at your University through Dr Plummer’s teaching and writing, do you consider that this has demonstrated a breach of the University’s duty of care towards its students?

– Will you facilitate Dr Plummer in making a formal apology to victims and survivors of child sexual crime for the views he expressed in his writings as cited above?

– Will you provide a statement that Dr Plummer’s teaching, writing and research does not in any way currently promote pro-paedophile perspectives?

– I will publish the Vice Chancellor’s response on this website.

Questions for Dr Ken Plummer

– Do you still hold the same views on paedophilia that are expressed in your essays Paedophilia: Constructing a Sociological Baseline and Images of Paedophilia?

– If you do still hold these views, does your teaching reflect these views?

– If your views have changed, have you written anything which clarifies your position? I’ll happily publish it on this blog.

– If you do still hold these views, what do you say to child victims and survivors who may have been abused by those students influenced by your teachings? I’ll happily publish an apology on this website to the victims, survivors and students.

“Paedophiles are told they are the seducers and rapists of children; they know their experiences are often loving and tender ones. They are told that children are pure and innocent, devoid of sexuality; they know both from their own experiences of childhood and from the children they meet that this is not the case.”

As recently as 2012, Prof Plummer published on his personal blog a chapter he wrote in another book, Male Intergenerational Intimacy, in 1991. “As homosexuality has become slightly less open to sustained moral panic, the new pariah of ‘child molester’ has become the latest folk devil,” he wrote. “Many adult paedophiles say that boys actively seek out sex partners … ‘childhood’ itself is not a biological given but an historically produced social object.”

Prof Plummer confirmed to The Sunday Telegraph that he had been a member of PIE in order to “facilitate” his research.

Library set up tribute to paedophile campaigner Ian Dunn

Bosses at the National Library of Scotland have removed an exhibit which paid tribute to a late gay rights campaigner after it was revealed he was a co-founder of a notorious child abuse network.
A small display in a reading room at the academic centre in Edinburgh hailed Ian Dunn as a champion of LGBT rights – but failed to mention he was also involved in establishing the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE).
Dunn, who died in 1998, has been widely named as an influential member of a national campaign that called for the legalisation of sex between adults and children. PIE was disbanded in 1984 after a series of newspaper exposures, with many of its leading activists subsequently jailed.

Staff at the library hurriedly removed the tribute to Dunn yesterday after being alerted to his past by The Times newspaper. A spokeswoman said the exhibit had been installed by a staff member in good faith in late 2018, with no complaints being registered. A single tweet sent to the library in November by a member of the public, which expressed concern about its appropriateness, was missed.

Scottish Conservative MSP Annie Wells said: “No-one wants to see regular interference from politicians when it comes to archives and artefacts. “But displaying these items which are so blatantly tainted by someone with links to a group promoting paedophilia is a misjudgement. “It will be disturbing and upsetting to anyone who’s been a victim of paedophilia, and I hope this decision is revisited.”
Dunn worked as a local authority town planner in Edinburgh and helped run the Lavender Menace bookshop in Forth Street in the 1980s. His links to PIE have been well-documented. Last year, the BBC faced criticism for uploading a 1976 documentary on gay rights in Scotland to its website as Dunn was listed as one of the programme’s presenters.

Newspapers were reporting Dunn’s links to paedophilia as far back as 1984. A Sunday Mail report from the time alleged he “allows his flat to be used as the main contact address for Britain and the whole of Europe for paedophiles”.

A library spokeswoman said: “Material from Dunn’s archive was unfortunately selected for a small display relating to gay rights in one of our reading rooms. “Small displays such as these are not routinely subject to the same level of curatorial scrutiny as our larger displays or exhibitions. We have since been extremely concerned to learn of Dunn’s wider history and immediately removed the display and any associated promotional activity.”

Margaret Hodge: Anti-paedophile campaigner?

spotlight

An Islington Gazette cutting from November 1983 shows that former Islington Council leader Margaret Hodge signed a petition to ban the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), an organisation that wanted to lower the age of consent to 4 years old.

IG041183Mrs Hodge’s anti-paedophile stance must have been the cause of constant arguments, since her husband, Henry Hodge, and her close friends Harriet Harman and Jack Dromey, were all senior officials of the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL), which was affiliated to the Paedophile Information Exchange.

Although Margaret Hodge was well aware of PIE’s activities, she says she was unaware that paedophiles wanted to work with children. During her time as leader (1982-1992), every one of Islington’s children’s homes was infiltrated by paedophiles.

She recently tried to explain her total failure to protect children in care from paedophile rings, prostitution, and trafficking by saying “All that happened when we didn’t really…

NCCL Documentary Evidence 2 – Sexual Offences – Evidence to the Criminal Law Revision Committee 1976

Below is the text of all sections of Sexual Offences: Evidence to the Criminal Law Revision Committee. NCCL Report no. 13 (February 1976, revised edition March 1976) which are relevant to issues concerning PIE, to whom they had become affiliated by this time. Some of this has been quoted in various newspaper articles, but the complete text should make clear the extent to which NCCL’s recommendations were being influenced by PIE-style thinking (though some of it is perfectly reasonable). I will provide proper commentary, together with other NCCL-related information, at a later date.

Differences between the February and March 1976 versions of the report, both of which I have looked at, are tiny and cosmetic.

Introduction to the second edition

The publication of NCCL’s evidence on the law relating to sexual offences has caused considerable controversy. Unfortunately, the publicity given to the proposals to lower the ages of consent did not generally make clear the distinction which we made between an area of private morality, where the individual may make his or her own choice, and the area where the criminal law should intervene. Some commentators preferred to assert the innocence of ‘childhood’, ignoring the fact that a number of people below the age of 16 do choose to have sexual intercourse. Others defended the existing law on heterosexual activity on the ground that the law is a defence of the girl who wishes to say ‘no’. There is no evidence to suggest that the existing law does protect girls who wish to avoid intercourse: NCCL’s case is that such protection, if it does exist, should not be given at the expense of making criminal sexual activity between partners who consent.

Timely illustration of how objectionable the use of the criminal law is in this area was given this month when Justice Melford Stevenson criticised the police for charging an 18-year-old man with unlawful sexual intercourse with his 15-year-old girlfriend – whose consent, according to the judge, was not in doubt. The law is, of course, very rarely enforced, and it is not clear whether those who uphold its existence wish to see such prosecutions brought more frequently.

There has been considerable criticism of NCCL’s proposals on the ages of consent some based on a misunderstanding of our reasoning. But the proposals have also attracted support from those who share our conviction that the criminal law should not interfere with private, consenting sexual activity, and from a number of young people, and those working with them, who welcome the recognition that they are capable of making their own choice. This report has already stimulated public discussion about major issues of law and morality, and we welcome continuing debate on the proposals which we have made.

March 1976

Introduction

One of the most empty opinions frequently given about our society is that it is a ‘permissive society’. The term is rarely defined. It is true that certain barriers to sexual activity have been lowered, but the high threshold of guilt that affects many people often distorts relationships and behaviour and makes quite legitimate sexual freedoms beyond the reach of many people. The law still operates harshly to discourage certain sexual activities, even where no harm to others is identifiable. It would be equally true to say, as Anthony Grey of the Sexual Law Reform Society recently did, that ours is a repressive society. It is quite usual for advocates of any sexual freedom to be regarded as if they were calling for sexual licence. The test of any freedom – and there is no reason to exclude sexuality from this rule – is its effect on the legitimate freedoms of others.

Although in the past it was accepted that ecclesiastical laws and, subsequently, civil laws could properly enforce a moral code, in more recent times the feeling has been growing that Acts of Parliament should not, and cannot, control the moral side of our lives. It was put forcibly in a perspicacious sentence of the Wolfenden Report (1957) : ‘Unless a deliberate attempt is to be made by society, acting through the agency of the law, to equate the sphere of crime with that of sin, there must remain a realm of private morality and immorality which is, in brief and crude terms, not the law’s business.

The NCCL believes that the main function of the law on sexual behaviour should be protection; the only reason for making a sexual activity illegal is because it may result in other people being harmed. This rules out all laws concerned solely with morality. It also rules out paternalistic laws which attempt to stop an individual from harming himself; it is quite difficult in reality, to harm oneself by having too much sex.

There are, in NCCL’s opinion, two areas where a protective law may properly restrict sexual behaviour:

i) Where one or more parties to a sexual act have not consented;
ii) Where sexual behaviour results in demonstrable suffering or offence to other people.

Age of Consent

True consent has not been obtained unless all the participants have freely entered into the activity. The law must prevent individuals from forcing their attentions upon others by using violence, threats, fraud, blackmail or other improper pressures, such as taking unfair advantage of those under one’s authority or those who are handicapped in some way. Most people would agree that the law must intervene in such circumstances. The problem of consent becomes controversial when one has to decide at what age a child is responsible for his/her actions and is therefore capable of giving consent.

Many people hold strong opinions about the age of consent, but there is very little real evidence that can be used to support any one particular age. It is possible to use very similar arguments to support the age of 12, 13, 14, or 15. The choice of any particular age is quite arbitrary; this may seem inevitable to lawmakers, but one should not forget that this appears ridiculous to young people who are told sexual intercourse is illegal one day and legal the following day.

Some doctors support the present age of consent in the belief that the cervix is more liable to damage by sexual intercourse at 14 than at 16 but this is disputed by other medical experts and the evidence either way is far from convincing. The main arguments in favour of a high age of consent are psychological and emotional. It is said that adolescents may be physically capable of exercising their sexuality, but they are not mentally prepared for this experience. People who put forward this argument are really thinking about emotional commitments more than physical acts, but there is no law that can, or should, control romantic attachments.

It is also said that adolescents cannot have a very realistic idea of the possible consequences of their sexual activities and that giving expression to their desires could lead to a pregnancy with unfortunate consequences for the offspring, as well as for the adolescents, their parents and the community. Against this it can be argued that there are now fairly efficient ways of avoiding an unwanted pregnancy, if adolescents can be persuaded to make use of them. But many of these young people, who need contraceptives and advice about sexual matters, may be reluctant to ask for help when they know that they are breaking the law by engaging in sexual activities below the age of consent. Counsellors, doctors and others who wish to help adolescents are also put in an awkward position because in theory, at least, they are aiding and abetting an offence. Furthermore, the law making heterosexual sexual intercourse illegal under 16 is often broken and rarely enforced. (This argument, about prevention of pregnancy, does not of course apply to sexual activity between persons of the same sex.)

The law also takes no account of the fact that the age of puberty is much lower now than when it was decided to make 16 the age of consent. There is no real biological justification for any particular age. Less than a hundred years ago, the age of consent was 13. It was changed in 1885 following a scandal concerning child prostitution. Most girls have reached puberty by the age of 12 and most boys intend to have early sexual experience, whatever the law may be. Contemporary psychological research has shown that children have sexual feelings and desires from a very early age. As the age of puberty covers a wide range, any age of consent will be too high for some and too low for others. In any case, it is not sensible to choose one age when suddenly boys and girls are permitted to engage in heterosexual activities without fear of legal sanction. The ability of teenagers to make suitable judgements and control their impulses depends upon upbringing and education, not upon the law of the land.

The severity of the present laws affects relationships that cross the age of consent even when they are, in the ordinary sense, mutual. In the public mind, the legal term ‘assault’ that is applied in these cases probably suggests brief, violent encounters. In fact, the law, as well as prohibiting such undesirable sexual acts, may bring to a crushing end caring and mutual relationships of long standing, and some where the partners are close in age. Although in these cases, the ‘harm’ that the law is meant to discourage evades scientific discovery. The harm that flows from the law’s operation is all too evident.

Although it is both logical, and consistent with modern knowledge about child development, to suggest that the age of consent should be abolished, we fear that, given the present state of public attitudes on this topic, it will not be politically possible to abolish the age of consent. Accordingly, we propose a series of ages of consent, which would have the effect of reducing the harmful effects of the present laws.

i) A person aged 14 or over should be legally capable of giving consent.
ii) A person aged under 10 should be presumed legally incapable of giving consent.
iii) Where both partners are aged 10 or over, but under 14, a consenting sexual act should not be an offence.
iv) Where one partner is aged 10 or over, but under 14, the law should presume that consent was not present, unless it is demonstrated that it was genuinely given and the child understood the nature of the act.
v) As the age of consent is arbitrary, we propose an overlap of two years on either side of 14, so that, where the participants are aged 12 or over, but under 16, a consenting sexual act will not be an offence.
vi) The exception provided in S 6 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956 should be retained, with the amendment that a person be not guilty of unlawful sexual acts with a child under 14 if he is under the age of 21 (not 24, as at present), has not previously been charged with alike offence, and reasonably believes the other person to be aged 14 or over.

We are particularly concerned that the present review of the law should not introduce new restrictions where none exist at present. The ages of consent would therefore continue to apply only to girls participating in heterosexual acts, and to boys participating in homosexual acts.

[….]

Homosexuality

In the second paragraph of this memorandum, the blunt words of the Wolfenden Committee were quoted to support the proposition that people’s private morality is not the business of the law. That statement was made in that part of the Wolfenden Report which was specifically concerned with homosexuality. There is no logical or sensible reason why homosexuality should be treated differently by the law from heterosexuality. But the law discriminates against homosexuals – and mainly male homosexuals – in the following ways:

i) Homosexual acts between consenting adults in private, which became lawful in England and Wales after the Sexual Offences Act 1967, are still illegal in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
ii) Homosexual acts are still illegal in the Armed Forces and aboard UK Merchant ships.
iii) The age of consent for female heterosexuals is 16, but for male homosexuals is 21.
iv) The penalty for indecent assault on a male is a maximum of ten years, but the maximum for indecent assault on a female is two years.
v) It is illegal for a man aged over 21, to have sexual relationships with a man under 21, even in the reasonable belief that the younger man was over 21 and when the two men were close in age.
vi) The definition of privacy is more restrictive for homosexual acts.
vii) It remains an offence for a third party to procure a homosexual act, even though such an act is now quite legal. (This especially includes the publication of contact advertisements).
viii) It is an offence for a man persistently to solicit another man for an immoral purpose, but not for a man persistently to solicit a woman.
ix) Local bye-laws are used against homosexuals in a way that they are never used against heterosexuals.

These anomalies cannot be justified. Most of them were compromises made to facilitate the passing of the 1967 Act. It might have seemed to be good tactics at the time, but there is no logical reason for discrimination between these two forms of sexual behaviour.

At the very least, the same laws on sexual behaviour should apply throughout the United Kingdom. There should be no special prohibitions applying to the Armed Forces or the Merchant Navy. The definition of privacy should mean that a sexual act should not take place where it might be observed by others who might object. The age of consent should be the same for homosexuals and heterosexuals. The law on soliciting should be implemented without reference to the sex of the people concerned. No enactment of bye-law should prohibit conduct between persons of the same sex if it does not also prohibit similar conduct between people of the opposite sex. Penalties for sexual offences should be set at the same level for equivalent offences, whether they apply to male homosexual, or heterosexual offences.

Homosexual and Heterosexual Offences

It is not necessary to discriminate between homosexual and heterosexual behaviour in any of the laws regulating prostitution, brothel keeping, pornography, advertising for sexual partners, or in the application of any of the vague all-purpose common laws like conspiracy to corrupt public morals or breach of the peace.

We propose that the offences of buggery (S 12 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956) and assault with intent to commit buggery (S 16) be abolished. As the law [end p. 10] stands, a man and woman who have anal intercourse are both liable to a maximum term of life imprisonment, but the Sexual Offence Act 1967 allows a man over 21 to be lawfully penetrated and to penetrate another man over 21.

Importuning

Section 32 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956 re-enacts an older law which was originally intended to catch prostitutes’ touts or bullies, but has been used almost exclusively against male homosexuals. Indeed a recent judgment in the Divisional Court (Cooke v Edmondson, 1966) held that S 32 cannot be used against a man who solicits a woman. The law which prohibits homosexual conduct has been reformed, but this law on importuning is still the cause of much injustice.

Although the use of the word ‘persistently’ in the original wording of the Act suggests that the intention as to protect members of the public from interference or annoyance, the interpretation by the courts means that in practice the world of a plain-clothes policeman is usually accepted by the magistrate. In such a situation, it is not necessary to stress the possibility of exaggeration or perjury.

So fearful is the homosexual of the social repercussions that he can often be persuaded to plead guilty to lesser charges under a local bye-law on the promise from police of no publicity. A policeman is neither authorised to give such a promise, nor is he able to prevent publication of the proceedings in the press. It is not sufficient to argue that the penalties are comparatively light, for the ignominy that follows a conviction for importuning for homosexual purposes can still have a shattering effect on a man’s relationship with his family and friends, and on his circumstances at work.

As the law stands, it is not even necessary to show that someone has been annoyed or offended. The courts convict on police evidence alone, sometimes after doubtful means of entrapment have been used, such as an agent provocateur who incites a person to commit an offence. Someone who shows that s/he is available for sex by being in a certain place or by giving another person an enquiring look cannot be said to be acting in an offensive manner.

Soliciting only becomes annoying if it is directed towards the same person persistently and pressingly. The police should be required to produce the evidence of the person who has been persistently importuned. Consequently the law on soliciting should be amended to require that a person cannot be convicted of this offence unless it is proved that at least one member of the public (i.e. not a policeman) was offended by his or her conduct. It should also be a defence to show that the member of the public encouraged the soliciting.

As homosexual relations between consenting adults are no longer illegal, the existence of the offence of importuning or soliciting for an immoral purpose means that a person may be charged, convicted and punished for attempting acts which are not in themselves unlawful. All soliciting, from begging to high pressure salesmanship, can reach a stage when it becomes offensive, but it is doubtful if the public really requires extra protection when the soliciting is for sexual purposes.

Incest

For hundreds of years the crime of incest has given rise to such intense feelings of revulsion that public discussion on the subject has often been uninformed and irrational. The incest taboo is world wide and has a close connection with religious cults and magic. Recent researches (Maisch, 1973) cast some doubt on these historical and anthropological beliefs. The present day case against incest is firstly, that genetic damage may result in the offspring and secondly, that an incestuous union is disruptive to the cohesion of the family.

The first objection is strongly held, but recent studies on human reproduction do not give much support to this theory, and it is in direct contradiction to the practices of successful animal breeders. In any case, the advent of reliable contraceptives and safer abortion weakens this argument. As for the second objection, the evidence (Gebhard, 1965) suggests that families in which incest occurs between parent and child are often disturbed before it starts. To this extent, incest is not the cause but is one symptom of a disrupted family.

Although some of those charged with this crime are mentally or emotionally inadequate, this is not always the case, especially when the incestuous union is between brother and sister. In our view, no benefit accrues to anyone by making incest a crime when committed between mutually consenting persons over the age of consent. When force of threats are used, or when one of the partners is under the age of consent, the law on assault should come into operation.

We would therefore propose that the crime of incest be abolished. It may be argued, with some justification, that in cases of parent-child incest, undue pressure to consent could be placed on the child who is economically and emotionally dependent on the older party. This is just the sort of situation where bringing in the law could do immense harm to the child, the father and the rest of the family. A young person is far more likely to confide in a teacher, social worker or member of the family if this would not result in bringing down the full force of the law, with the possible outcome of the break up of the family with the father being sent to prison, the child having to appear in court and perhaps being put into care. There are many cases where the victim does not appear to suffer from any obvious psychological disturbance until after the case has come to court. It is often the publicity in the local press and the reaction of neighbours that is most damaging to the whole family.

Paedophilia

The strong emotions that surround the subject of paedophilia make it particularly difficult for justice to be done in such cases. Feelings of revulsion are often shown by parents, police, witnesses, magistrates and judges, and even by the lawyer briefed to defend the accused. In such circumstances, a wish for retribution can easily take precedence over a concern for the child’s welfare. Where the child was a willing partner in the sexual activity the strength of prejudice surrounding the case and the visible psychological effect on the defendant (who may have been a friend of the child) will be highly disturbing. Where the act involved force or was otherwise without consent, the need is to assist the child overcome the trauma, which may only be reinforced by legal proceedings.

Although clearly in the case of a genuine assault on a child, action has to be taken to protect other children from the offender, there is a growing feeling that the present legal system causes unnecessary suffering for the child victim of a sexual assault. In their report for the Institute for the Study and Treatment of Delinquency, Gibbens and Prince make the point that isolated events are unlikely to have any profound effect on a child who would probably soon forget about their experience if it were not for the significance given to it by parental concern and legal proceedings. They point out that several children appear to be undisturbed at the time they are required to give evidence in court, but later have a breakdown and become increasingly unsettled. It is important to realise that in some cases the child will have felt coerced into giving evidence damaging to someone s/he was fond of, and will at the same time have had his/her feelings of sexual guilt raised to a high pitch.

The lay person is often unaware that an ‘indecent assault’ in law can be committed without violence or physical harm being done to the child. A man can be convicted of an indecent assault without there being any physical contact with the child’s genitals; thus, putting a hand on a child’s thighs can be an indecent assault. Virkkunen (1975) studied a group of 64 paedophiles and reported : ‘Aggressive behaviour was not as a rule a characteristic of these offenders: on the other hand they seemed to be in a pronounced manner gentle, fond of children and benevolent.’

Parents, police and lawyers find it hard to believe that the child may actively seek the sexual relationship. Bender and Blau (1937) report : ‘This study seems to indicate that these children undoubtedly do not deserve completely the cloak of innocence with which they have been endowed by moralists, social reformers and legislators . . . frequently we considered the possibility that the child might have been the actual seducer, rather than the one innocently seduced.’ Other researchers (Gibbens, Virkkunen) agree that the children often take the initiative; some of them have sexual experiences with several adults.

Childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in, with an adult result in no identifiable damage. The Criminal Law revision Committee should be prepared to accept the evidence form follow-up research on child ‘victims’ which show that there is little subsequent effect after a child has been ‘molested’. Several researchers (Gagnon, 1965; Gibbens and Prince, 1963; Tolsma, 1957; Doshay, 1943) have shown that it is possible to exaggerate the damage done to the child. Bender and Grugett (1952) write: ‘Modern psychiatric follow-up studies of a sizeable series of individuals who as children had known these types of sexual experiences have not disclosed any directly adverse effect of the early incidents upon later social adjustments’. A large number of people (one researcher estimated it to be about one third of all children) have one or more pre-pubertal sexual experiences with an adult. So at least some of the readers of this report should ask themselves whether their early sexual activities with an adult have resulted in any unfortunate after-effects.

As many male paedophiles are attracted to boys, there is a fear that the boy who has sexual relations with an adult man will grow up to be a homosexual, but again there is no evidence for this. Rainer (1960) writes : ‘Homosexual seduction in itself was not found to determine homosexual behaviour, nor deter heterosexual behaviour’. Coon (1957) writes : ‘To assume categorically that these relationships are going to be traumatic for the boy is prejudgment of a type which certainly has no place in dynamic psychiatry’. The Speijer Report, recently produced by the Dutch Council of Health for the Ministers of Justice and of Social Affairs, concluded that homosexual experiences might benefit boys who later would live heterosexual lives, in the same way that young male homosexuals could only benefit form sexual experiments with both girls and women.

There is little doubt that a law court can be an alarming place for a child. During a trial on indictment the number of people present in court may be thirty or more, not including ordinary members of the public. A child is apt to be overwhelmed by the formality of the court. Although many of them will have seen court scenes on television, recognition of a familiar scene will be offset by the fear that their words may be twisted by a clever lawyer. The circumlocutions of lawyers can be confusing for a child, even when the lawyer is not directly challenging the child’s evidence. If the child has been a willing partner in the offence, s/he will know that retribution can be avoided by claiming to be an innocent victim – which is what parents and others will want and expect to hear. Furthermore, the child will be required to repeat the story to parents, police (sometimes more than once) and then in court, with the risk that the child’s memory may become faulty and that details may be elaborated.

It is important that courts dealing with paedophilia should arrange to have the child’s evidence given in court at second hand, unless this is unfair to the defendant. If the statement from the child is not disputed, it can be treated as evidence. Where the defence wants to cross-examine the child, a magistrate can see the child with one representative form either side, but following less formal procedures than in a courtroom.

This suggested change in the law is merely a palliative. The real need is a change in the attitude which assumes that all case of paedophilia result in lasting damage. The present legal penalties are too high and reinforce the misinformation and prejudice. The duty of the court should be to inquire into all the relevant circumstances with the intention, not of meting out severe punishment, but of determining the best solution in the interests of both child and paedophile.

PIE – Documentary Evidence 7 – Steven Adrian Smith’s History of the Movement

Various people looking into the Paedophile Information Exchange have mentioned the volume Warren Middleton (ed), The Betrayal of Youth: Radical Perspectives on Childhood Sexuality, Intergenerational Sex, and the Social Oppression of Children and Young People (London: CL Publications, 1986). This book contained a wide range of articles mostly from a pro-paedophilia point of view either by PIE members or sympathisers; the fact that Peter Tatchell contributed a chapter has been the subject of various controversy (to which I will return in a later post). The following constitute the contents of the volume (see here for a selection of pages including more details on contributors):

Part One: Five Controversial Areas
Clive Coliman, ‘Incest’
Richard Green, ‘Child Pornography and Erotica’
Warren Middleton, ‘Child Prostitution’
Liz Holton and Kathy Challis, ‘Gender Differences’
Eric Presland, ‘Power and Consent’

Part Two: Miscellaneous Chapters
Tuppy Owens and Tom O’Carroll, ‘Love and Let Love’
Michael Ingram, ‘Children and Sex: A Child Counsellor’s View’
Beatrice Faust, ‘The Pedophiles’
Peter Tatchell, ‘Questioning Ages of Majority and Ages of Consent’
Roger Moody, ‘Ends and Means: How to Make Pedophilia Acceptable…?’
John Lindsay, ‘Socialism, Class, and Children’s Rights’

Part Three: Protection or Oppression?
Warren Middleton, ‘Childhood Sexuality and Pedophilia: Some Questions Answered’

Part Four: How Youth See the Issues
Jeff Vernon, ‘The Oppression of the Young: An Inside Perspective’

Appendices
Appendix 1: Steven A. Smith, ‘PIE, from 1980 Until its Demise in 1985’
Appendix 2: Timothy d’Arch Smith, ‘The Uranians’

The first of these two appendices is informative as an insider’s history of PIE. As with all writings by PIE members themselves, this should be read sceptically, aware of how much might have been omitted or distorted in the interests of the author or other members. My earlier post on PIE and the Home Office clarifies how Smith (also known as Steven Freeman) essentially ran the organisation from the Home Office itself. He fled the country for the Netherlands soon after writing this article, as detailed below, and was eventually jailed in 1991, and then more recently was given an indeterminate sentence in 2011 after being convicted of producing drawings of children being raped (‘Ex-paedophile group leader Freeman jailed over child rape drawings’, BBC News, July 15th, 2011). Nonetheless, there is clearly lots of important information to dissect in this chapter which I reproduce complete, without comment, below.

Appendix 1
Steven A. Smith, ‘PIE: From 1980 until its Demise in 1985’, pp. 215-245

The name of PIE has cropped up several times in this collection. Since the group had, in its time, been so thoroughly misunderstood and misrepresented, it was deemed only fair to allow Steve Smith, its last chairperson, an opportunity to redress the balance. Accordingly, he now takes up the story from where Tom O’Carroll left off. –ed.

Questions of Priority

It seemed to me, when I succeeded O’Carroll as chairperson in 1979, that the most sensible order of business for PIE was firstly to regulate its internal affairs (MAGPIE [1] was appearing very erratically – partly my own fault – and members were receiving nothing else of value from the group); secondly to begin an energetic recruitment drive to replenish our depleted executive committee; thirdly to formulate collectively a coherent body of policies on key issues; and fourthly to tackle our campaigning objectives as a group, rather than as one or two individuals speaking on behalf of the group. More than simply addressing an occasional CHE branch, student gaysoc or academic conference, what I wanted to see was PIE producing a manifesto on video for the widest possible circulation (as GYM had done), or trying for ‘community access’ slots on TV and local radio, or producing posters and broadsheets aimed at the public rather than potential members, or even working in concert with the NUSS (the now-defunct National Union of School Students) to redress the steady flow of anti-paedophile propaganda which the police were imparting to schools all over the UK.

PIE had always felt a sense of kinship (not often reciprocated) with the gay movement, and a firm commitment towards autonomous youth liberation (children’s rights), but I wanted to see develop a far closer interaction – on practical as well as philosophical levels – between PIE and the various paedophile groups in Europe and the States. I felt we should lend considerable effort to the formation of an international alliance along similar lines to the International Gay Association (this was before we discovered how bureaucratic the IGA was in practice). Lastly, with the abandonment of PIE’s Contact Page under the menace of further prosecutions, the EC felt very keenly that members still needed something from PIE in the way of social support; something beyond the ad hoc counselling which many committee members undertook on a one-to-one basis. If British law prevented paedophiles from writing directly to one another through a simple small ad service, then some alternative had to be found which would abrogate the profound isolation which had driven them to the desperate resort of joining PIE in the first place. We began to look afresh at the establishment of local groups, which PIE had attempted in earlier years without much success.

In the event, PIE failed to draw onto its committee the kind of radicalised, hard-working people that were needed, and not one of the above objectives was realised. Year by year, PIE had sunk deeper into a state of collective torpor, grimly determined to survive, if only in catatonic immobility. So, we failed to attract into PIE useful paedophiles who were commited [sic] both to political action and to the development of a mutual support framework – this was due in part to PIE’s consummately negative image in all quarters (the radical leader was quite as easily duped by the press stories about us as anyone else, judging from the strange impressions of PIE that had reached our ears), but due also to obstruction and non co-operation wherever we sought wider publicity for the group’s address. Many gay and alternative journals must share the blame for PIE’s then continued parlous, debilitated condition. I’m convinced there are still many thousands of paedophiles in the UK alone who are ignorant of PIE having ever existed, and I know for certain there are many others who saw the various ‘exposés’ and shock reports about us, but were thwarted in their efforts to find us.


Perspectives on Pearl Harbour

A former treasurer, on resigning from the EC, put it to me (though not quite in these terms) that PIE’s reputation across the board had become so desperately negative that the groups’ mere existence could only harm the paedophile cause, whatever we tried to do about it. We were a pariah among alternative movements, evil incarnate to society at large, and by continuing to exist so doggedly in the face of all opprobrium, PIE was doing for British paedophiles what AIDS was doing for the gay community. A harsh judgement, I feel. If AIDS had not existed the Moral Majority would’ve had to invent it. If PIE had not existed, it would have been necessary for the NEWS OF THE WORLD to invent us. And in one sense it’s true to say that the gutter press did invent PIE – or at least, the image of PIE which had been in general coinage since 1977; that of a secretive international ‘cult’, probably with underworld connections, certainly with influence in ‘high quarters’; a porn-producing syndicate of callous men intent upon nothing but their own sexual gratification. But if PIE’s early strategy had been different, how different would its public image have been?

Several times the idea of folding PIE and replacing it with a new paedophile grouping was mooted on committee, but we’d never have successfully jettisoned PIE’s reputation by the simple expedient of a name-change, and even a substantially different alignment would not for long have escaped the vitriolic attention PIE had enjoyed. This rose by any other name would have smelled no sweeter. There was nothing endemic in PIE itself which another broad-based group could have avoided and thus somehow bridged the ‘credibility gap’. NAMBLA in the US, for example, has placed its emphasis exclusively on gay paederasty (men attracted to teenage boys and youths), thus neatly sidestepping the two most controversial planks of PIE’s platform – heterosexual and pre-teen paedophile relationships. Notwithstanding this, NAMBLA has been attacked, boycotted and obstructed every bit as much as PIE had been by the media, women’s groups, sections of the gay scene, and has come in for just the same intimidation and harassment from the authorities. So much for tactical compromise. PIE’s trajectory into the public eye in 1977 can be compared to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, after which Admiral Yamamoto observed: “I fear that all we have done is to waken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve”. Doubtless, many paedophiles wish we’d let this particular giant sleep on, but neither they nor children can be liberated from his tyranny without at least waking him in the process.

The conflicting demands of our campaigning and befriending objectives from the start presented a fundamental dichotomy in PIE. What for years we viewed as one of PIE’s greatest strengths may in truth have been its greatest weakness, or at least its greatest liability; our acceptance into the group and onto its Executive Committee of paedophiles, whatever their attitudes, abilities or political persuasion (with the exception of the far Right, of course). By straining to be all things to all paedophiles I doubt that we fully satisfied any, and we certainly alienated a few. There is a very powerful argument which runs thus: that the accommodation of a passive, inert membership consumes so much of the energies of a small group’s activist core that the raison d’être of the group is lost in a sea of ‘club-shit’. In other words, committee devoted so much of its time and attention to the routine of organisation and providing reading material and other services for consumption by the Moloch that vital campaigning work was neglected. After six years hard labour on the PIE committee I can only say that this was absolutely true.

Probably the only way ahead for paedophilia in the UK will be the emergence of two distinct groupings – though working in concert – attending to these differing needs. I for one did not wish to see the majority of paedophiles abandoned while the few activists diverted their attentions elsewhere, as some would have had us do, but equally I recognised that our political momentum had been retarded by a plague of part-time paedophiles – those who wanted to know what was going on without getting involved any deeper; who wanted to see changes made but not to help bring them about. PIE’s committee did not comprise many true activists anyway – it never did – so it alone did not have the capacity to diverge, and the very few paedophile activists who could be identified outside the group showed no interest in helping the metamorphosis come about.

Perhaps PIE’s mistake was in tackling non-paedophile prejudice in the first place? Perhaps instead we should have operated under the most stringent security precautions as a kind of Masonic network through which paedophiles might have contacted one another in safety? I’ve heard this view from outsiders. I don’t think that locking oneself in the closet would have been a terribly progressive move; by its nature such a network would have benefited only a tiny minority of those ‘in the know’, and the outside world would have been vindicated in its suspicions about us if we had behaved so furtively and were so indifferent to public opinion and the political imperative of children’s liberation.

The most bizarre misconception about PIE was held by a guy who later joined the committee for a short while – Lee Edwards. He’d visualised PIE being as affluent and neatly-organised as the Mormon Church, with smoked glass offices in the City of London and a full-time secretariat. He was, let’s say, a shade disillusioned by the reality. PIE did actually have an office in Westminster only a smirk away from the desk of the Home Secretary, but more of that later. The group’s silence in recent years had done nothing to dispel the illusions of people – friend and foe – about us, but then Pie itself had been undergoing an identity crisis of sorts, uncertain about which direction it should be taking. But one thing is quite certain – if we were none of the things people expected us to be, we were certainly none of the things the press had claimed us to be in their haste to deceive the British public.


Loaves and Fishes

I found PIE in 1978 entirely by accident through a classified ad in TIME OUT magazine. Many others came to us through a regular listing in GAY NEWS. However, both sources of new blood had been closed off long before the trial. [3] Occasionally, we would discover a listing in some unexpected place, inevitably giving an old address, but in general PIE was unable to get a listing in any gay or alternative paper in the UK. After the trial we attempted to retrieve this situation by a general approach to dozens of such papers here or abroad, asking for either free listings or concessionary advertising rates. A special appeal was made to the membership for donations to fund this advertising drive. MANCUNIAN GAY was the only paper in the UK willing to help us. Abroad, our ad was accepted without qualm by THE BODY POLITIC (Toronto) and GAY COMMUNITY NEWS (Boston) – both excellent gay papers whose unequivocally supportive stance on paedophilia put the faint-hearted GAY NEWS to shame – also by REVOLT (Sweden), CSC NUSLETER (California) and several others. But where we needed members most of all, where members were potentially of most value to the group, here in the UK, the drive got us nowhere. TIME OUT kept our hopes up for several months with repeated promises of a listing, but finally backed out with the feeble excuse that, as PIE wasn’t strictly a gay group, it was inappropriate to include us in a gay listings column. The only option left to us – a rather desperate one – was to litter PIE’s address around the streets by means of a sticker campaign, and this is what we did.

The sticker featured the silhouette of a standing child embracing a seated adult encircled by our name and address. We decided on this low-key format, foregoing bold and provocative slogans, as the object was simply to attract new members, not to outrage every parent that saw them. Even so, we were politely requested by one (prospective) London MP to desist planting them in his constituency (they had been discovered rather close to schools, you know!). Well, the campaign brought us just a handful of new people – too few members had been planting the stickers on a regular basis for fear of being caught red-handed and beaten up; those that were planted were being far too eagerly torn down; and worst of all one committee member made the terrible gaffe of not renewing the postal address on the sticker, so that later mail was never redirected to us at all. Perhaps the act of planting stickers, like writing political graffiti, is little more than a satisfying gesture of defiance for the individual, but I think we made a mistake in not concentrating our efforts on a far smaller area – probably London itself – and perhaps, if there had been a next time, we should have gone for those bold, provocative slogans.

There were a number of projects in various stages of completion during this period – none of which had any significance to non-paedophiles. The PIE Press Service was revived, making available once more all PIE’s early material (UNDERSTANDING PAEDOPHILIA and CHILDHOOD RIGHTS, for example) together with items like Tom’s book PAEDOPHILA: THE RADICAL CASE, [4] which PIE subsidised to its members; the early US boylove magazine BETTER LIFE; and the celebrated BODY POLITIC article ‘Men Loving Boys Loving Men’ [5] (which has been subjected to not one, but two trials of its own). We owe thanks to Julian Meldrum of the Hall Carpenter Archives for supplying us with much early PIE material. So many important documents were lost whenever Scotland Yard descended on the homes of committee members that arrangements were made with the Brongersma and Bernard Foundations in Holland to deposit copies with them for safe keeping.

A reading list of paedophile fiction was added to the press service, complied by Lewis Grey, David Joy and Leo Adamson, and later a non-fiction list condensed by Tom O’Carroll from the copious bibliography of his book. Work was also begun on a film guide and on a survival guide for paedophiles in the UK.

A growing number of our members were captives in US prisons. Coping with the special needs of these people prompted us to set up a prisoner support scheme which, under Peter Bremner and later Tony Zalewski, found correspondents for these prisoners and sought sponsors to cover the expenses of their membership, mailing them recommended books and items from the press service. It hardly needs saying that our attempts to operate the scheme with inmates of British prisons were scotched by this country’s Draconian censorship restrictions. Mail from US prisoners often carried an apologetic stamp on the envelope which read: “Prisoners’ mail uncensored. Not responsible for contents.” I look forward to the day when British prisons need to be so apologetic – I had a long and fractious correspondence with the governor of Wormwood Scrubs over the confiscation of several letters of mine and other items sent to Tom O’Carroll. As with all things in the US, prison regulations vary wildly from state to state, so while some members were receiving regular visits from the boys for whose ‘protection’ they had been imprisoned, others were not even permitted to receive MAGPIE. NAMBLA was far better placed than we were to defend the interests of these people, and is now doing so. PIE was powerless to help prisoners in the UK without some referral arrangement with the social services, and the Home Office lifting restrictions on visits and correspondence.

Given the monstrous treatment of many paedophiles in prison, and the squalid, dehumanising conditions that prevail throughout the prison system, it is a marvel to me that people can emerge from this ordeal without a deep and burning animosity towards the society that abused them so. Imprisonment is the grossest indecency.

If there was one venture that I expected to be an unqualified success and firmly supported by the membership, it was the re-establishment of social meetings through local group organisers. This was the sort of freedom which other oppressed groups – blacks, gay men and women, and many more – took entirely for granted. Any attempt by PIE to arrange social venues (this applied equally to workshops, AGM’s, marches and demonstrations of any kind) carried with it the implicit danger of press harassment, police observation, and physical attack from fanatics of every species. Accordingly, such precautions had to be taken to insulate these meetings from the hostile gaze that the people who had most need of them – frightened, solitary people with zero political awareness – were the last to be invited to them. Where possible, committee members attempted to meet new people in order to establish their bona fides, but there was always a substantial part of the membership who could not be directly vouched for, and we knew there was an agent of the NEWS OF THE WORLD among them.

Having an EC member in Birmingham, the first step was to organise meetings in this area for members in the midlands. Several meetings took place, but then the host was arrested and sent to remand prison on an unconnected charge, and interest petered out. With my help, an Australian member attempted to generate support for a PIE branch in his country (we had more members in Australia than in Scotland and Wales together), but the majority of those approached preferred to keep the breadth of the globe between them and the kind of flak which PIE attracted. This was not too surprising when one learnt that an earlier bid to establish an independent Australian paedophile group – SYBOL – crashed when a conservative gay group threatened to hand the organisers’ names and addresses to the police. Plans for a Canadian branch of PIE went awry also, but happily NAMBLA was able to establish a chapter there soon after.

Our greatest concentration of members had always been in London and the home counties. All but a handful of PIE’s workers through the years had lived there. From August ’82 we booked a private room one night a week in a series of West end pubs, inviting along all members who were known to us. The average attendance was very disappointing: always the same few faces. Presumably, everyone feared that a press plant would be present, as had in fact happened once before in 1979: A known freelance operating for the NOTW, had turned up half drunk at one pub meeting and begun asking those present to procure boys for him. “I know there are kids around who’ll go with you for money,” he said, “but where are they? Why don’t we do something instead of just sitting here?” No such investigative journalist graced any of the more recent meetings. TIME OUT reporter, John Gill, came along once or twice, but he was there at our invitation, preparing a feature on the anxieties and expectations of paedophiles living in London (a feature subsequently suppressed by the magazine’s editors). Other guests present at those meetings included many GYM members and one or two representatives from CHE – one of them a woman who was entirely supportive. Discussions with these people were on the whole constructive and stimulating, and made the meetings worthwhile for us on the EC, but the objective of a social forum for members outside the committee was never realised.


Babel Wasn’t Built in a Day

In August 1980 PIE circulated an open letter among every known paedophile group in Europe, Scandinavia and North America, and also to prominent individuals such as Dr. Edward Brongersma, Dr. Frits Bernard, Drs. Theo Sandfort, and Valida Davila of CSC (Childhood Sensuality Circle). The letter outlined an ambitious, some would say grandiose, proposal for a new transnational paedophile federation through which member groups would collaborate on material projects and share resources at the same time as working towards a common philosophical platform. As I wrote in MAGPIE 15, “Much more than a simple mutual aid society, such a federation would be the consolidation of a coherent international paedophile and children’s liberation movement out of the present chaos of tiny national groups working largely oblivious of one another”. This initiative was very much a personal commitment of my own – my committee colleagues were not all so inspired by this euro-vision. I had learned through PIE that there were groups in Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Portugal, Belgium, yet we knew virtually nothing about these people and their organisations, what they were doing in their own countries, or how their political analyses differed from that of PIE. Any contact we had established had been of a token kind, genuine in spirit but superficial in practice, so it was safe to assume that these groups were in the same state of ignorance about us. It seemed important to me that a full and penetrating dialogue be established at least with the strongest of them.

Inevitably, there were language obstacles. We mustered a few members to translate from French, German and Dutch for us, but although our files were brimming with magazines from these groups we could hardly ask people to translate whole magazines, and in any case one could not always rely on forming an accurate view of a group’s thinking merely by reading its general literature. (There had been no language barrier for Tom O’Carroll when he represented PIE at an Oslo conference ‘Amnesty for Love and affection’ hosted by the Norwegian group, NAFP, in 1979. There had even been discussions there on forming a new, broad-based international group called ‘Amnesty for Child Sexuality’, but nothing had come of this.)

The Open letter included a proposal for an early ‘summit’ conference of interested groups to discuss the general concept of an IGA-type alliance, and areas of practical collaboration between us. The most enthusiastic responses we received came from people and groups who had least to gain from the proposed alliance: “I am in complete agreement with your plans,” wrote Valida Davila; “Some people are ruined by oppression and persecution, and others are fired to fight back. I see your committee has chosen the latter road.” “We think the idea of an international association for paedophiles excellent,” wrote REVOLT of Sweden; “If there is anything we can do to support, never hesitate to ask.” Pasteur J. Doucé of the Centre du Christ Libérateur, Paris, wrote: “If I can be of any help in the formation of an international paedophile fellowship please let me know.” An anarchist commune for young people in Nuremberg, the Indianner, said that although they had deep reservations about the German group, DSAP, they still wished to “join a basic form” with us.

The groups themselves were not prepared to take a lead. They wanted to see PIE set up the conference itself. What better demonstration of the poor grasp our friends had on the political realities for PIE? We were possibly the only group among them which was unable to hold a general meeting for its own members without grave risk of injury to those attending, and prosecution of the organisers. After the events of 1977 for PIE, did anyone seriously expect an international paedophile conference to be permitted in the UK? NAMBLA chose to “wait and see what leadership develops on these concepts”. The paedophile wing of the Dutch civil rights umbrella organisation, NVSH, felt that their priorities should be domestic, and that international co-ordination should be left to the auspices of the IGA itself. NAFP in Norway “sympathised” but wanted “more concrete ideas”. [6]

The first months of the following year saw the emergence in France of a new paedophile organisation – the Groupe de recherché pour une Enfance Différente – and four of us from PIE sped along to its inaugural congress in November. Also present on that occasion were David Thorstad representing NAMBLA, Frits Bernard representing DSAP, and a member of the Belgian Paedophile Studygroup [sic]. The atmosphere at that opening day was something I had not experienced before even at PIE’s 1978 AGM – an intensity, an electric urgency of expression that welled as much from the floor as from the platform. The strength of the GRED committee was plain to see, as one after another they all addressed the meeting with equal vigour and self-assurance, and everyone it that packed hall (including, to our delight, a handful of women paedophiles) was involved, not quietly receiving the transmitted wisdoms of the committee. With the promise of an imminent reduction in France’s homosexual ‘age of consent’ from eighteen to fifteen, the liberation of children was for these people far from a remote utopian objective.

I came away from that conference profoundly frustrated, both with the inadequacy of PIE and my own inadequate French. I went to listen, but came away having understood little that I’d heard. I went to contribute my views, but came away without having said a word. I went to take part, but was obliged merely to observe. It’s not entirely unreasonable, of course, that a French group meeting in France should conduct its meeting in French, but I had rather hoped that, at least in the workshop on international collaboration, some concession would be made to a humble Anglophone like myself. Unfortunately, GRED’s English was only a little better than my French. One might think such a lesson in futility would have made me reconsider the practicality of collaboration on the level suggested by the Open Letter but, on the contrary, I felt all the more keenly how much we had to gain from a close dialogue and mutual co-operation with people such as GRED. If we left them with a rather poor understanding of PIE and what we had to deal with over here, that was entirely our own fault, of course, but even among the extrovert committee of GRED, and in its journal, PETIT GREDIN, there was a hint of the same parochialism displayed by the NVSH paedophiles and others, confining their analysis of the problems and solutions within national boundaries. Perhaps PIE was unique in this respect – that more than half our membership lived abroad, scattered among twenty or so countries, and it was plain to us that the ignorance and intolerance of paedophilia knew no frontiers, as with the inhibitory myths of childhood. While the police and the agents of ‘moral’ conformity were concerting their efforts internationally against us, would we not even collaborate in our own defence, if for no better motive?

Another item under preparation for the PIE Press Service at that time was a comprehensive directory of paedophile/children’s liberation groups – the first such guide ever to be published in the English language, filling in a little detail to that cold, unwelcoming expanse of acronyms: SAP, DAP, DSAP, PAC, AKP and so on. Questionnaires were distributed hot on the heels of the Open Letter, and the information that came back immediately helped to dissipate our own ignorance a little. We discovered, inevitably, that some of the groups had already collapsed. In Germany, for example, the Deutsche Studie und Arbeitsgemeinschaft Pädofilie had disintegrated over an ideological clash between anarchists, conservative reformists, and revolutionary socialists – notably about the nature and extent of freedom it wished to seek for young people. Blackmail threats had come into play here too, as with SYBOL in Australia, but this time one paedophile against another, to the utter damnation of those that made them. NAFP in Norway also, sadly, dissolved. And for each group that vanished another would suddenly appear elsewhere on the map – Stiekum in Belgium, for instance.

At the GRED conference it was agreed that the groups represented there would all follow NAMBLA’s example in joining the IGA itself and through it lobbying the gay movement directly for firmer support. The extent of our links with the gay political scene was an essential aspect of PIE’s strategy (insofar as PIE had such a thing) which I want to consider separately but, in the absence of a constructive dialogue with gays (or anyone else) in our own country about the radical means to accomplish our short and long term objectives, other paedophile groups abroad remained the only people from whom alternative strategies could be learned, our own analysis refined, different perspectives examined. Practical alteration to the law and its institutions is an objective necessarily specific to one’s own country, but awakening a whole culture to the living realities of sexuality and of youth is the promulgation of an idea, a new system of living, and is not confined to the arbitrary frontiers of states.


Prodigal Son? _ Or A Cuckoo in the Nest?

1983 was the first time in PIE’s nine-year history that a handful of members carried a PIE banner at the London Gay Pride march. The banner read simply: ‘Adults Loving Children loving Adults’ – a bisexual extension of the famous BODY POLITIC caption. This bold initiative was largely due to the efforts of one EC member, Leo Adamson, who, in a very short time of involvement in PIE, had propelled the group a deal closer to the gay movement than it had been for a considerable while. As a member of GYM (Gay Youth movement), Leo was able to speak for PIE at their annual conference ‘Gym’ll Fix It’, and he also took an active role in the group’s lobby of Parliament. In July ’83 he represented PIE at the IGA conference in Vienna. One could say that PIE had waited a long time for individuals with Leo’s stamina and conviction to come along and fulfil this vital liaison role.

Eric Presland, writing in CAPITAL GAY, [7] rejoiced in the appearance of PIE’s banner at the Gay Pride march, and bade us a hearty ‘Welcome back!’ While there was no doubting the sincerity of Presland’s support for PIE, nor his personal commitment to the liberation of children, there was an assumption behind his remarks that PIE had somehow drifted away from the gay movement in recent years, had now seen the error of its ways and returned – like the prodigal son – to its spiritual home. But it was not PIE that moved away from the gay movement in the UK, it was the gay movement that moved hastily away from us once the muck began to fly; and not because it viewed PIE as too reformist, sexist or reactionary – these tags were slapped on us much later – not because our proposals were insufficiently radical; they were too radical by half for the majority of gays. If we had concentrated, as NAMBLA had done in the US, simply upon sexual relationships between men and teenage boys, gays might have been rather more sanguine about solidarity with us. We were not prepared to barter away the interests of so many paedophiles and of pre-teenage children to realise that support.

If anything, the political leaning of the EC had become further to the Left than ever before, though unfortunately there was no output from PIE to attest to this. Committee may have been radical in its sympathies, but was singularly reticent to express this thinking through MAGPIE or CONTACT. [8] Repeatedly it was put to them that committee should buckle down and talk through some coherent policy positions on key questions – I prepared a discussion paper on pornography to set this process going – but there was no enthusiasm at all for the hard graft of policymaking. Little wonder then that Pie was seen as complacent and insular when it could not produce a single political position or line of analysis to promote wider debate. Those people who troubled to look for evidence of PIE’s philosophy or political credentials were left to glean what they might from the tone and content of MAGPIE, or from documents published years ago by a very different EC – the ‘Questions & Answers’ booklet [9] and our ‘Evidence to the Home Office Criminal Law Revision Committee’. [10] I don’t think there was anyone active in PIE at this time who was happy with the proposals contained in the ‘Evidence’ paper; many would have liked to see them publicly rescinded. All in all, if gays regarded PIE with some suspicion as being an unknown political quantity we had no-one but ourselves to blame for that.

“I don’t think the time is yet read,” wrote an editor of REVOLT in answer to our Open Letter, “for a great association that would support both gays and paedophiles. There are still too many prejudices in the various camps, and paedophile liberation has some very specific aspects which certainly would be overlooked (or neglected) in a general gay association.” I entirely agree with that view. Whereas those paedophile groups that had sprung initially from the gay movement (PIE, NAMBLA, GRED) had tended to survive without the umbilical intact, those which tried to submerge back into the gay movement, becoming just one of several special interest groups within it, (NAFP for example) expired in the process. It is manifestly obvious that the struggles and obstacles faced by paedophiles in the UK today, and indeed the major arguments marshalled against us, bear a striking resemblance to those which gays themselves were confronted with a scant few decades ago. Many of the tasks that face us are the same – combatting the monolithic heterosexuality of ‘educational’ propaganda, for one – and there is great scope here for joint action, but our demands of society are far from being identical, and nor are they at the same stage of accomplishment.

To pluck a metaphor from the mouths of our critics, in any relationship between paedophiles and gays, it is gays who are demonstrably the stronger partner, far greater in size and power, their social status much higher. In contrast, paedophiles are weak, vulnerable, and – as a political force – lacking in experience, our status just about the lowest there is. Can true equality ever be realised in such a relationship? Will gays not simply abuse their power advantage to silence or control paedophiles? Does the gay movement really care about the needs and aspirations of its younger protégé?

Well, you may be sure that PIE did not endorse that kind of negativistic approach. The assumption that the strong will tend inevitably to exploit the weak is true of fascists, not of sexual groupings. I believe that the gay movement in the UK neglected PIE’s struggle to establish a discrete paedophile consciousness, as it has largely neglected the predicament of gay people younger than sixteen or seventeen. From its position of comparitive [sic] strength it had much to offer us by way of philosophical analysis as well as options for positive action. Instead, we found ourselves forced consistently onto the defensive, perpetually having to justify our very sexuality, to avouch our responsibility as caring people. We were nothing beyond a coffee-table controversy to most gays, and our demands for acceptance and support were given barely more credence here than that which society gives to demands for gay equality. I’m afraid the movement itself has much to answer for the continuing misery and frustration gay children in this country are compelled to endure.

It was a measure neither of PIE’s ineptitude, nor of the political vacuousness of British paedophiles, that so few radical activists materialised among us. It was rather too facile to apply to us the logic of gay and feminist activism, as though the realities were no different for a paedophile coming out in a militant way. Every risk that a gay or lesbian accepts in entering a career of sexual politics, on whatever level, is multiplied many times for a paedophile doing likewise. It is a simple equation of greater risks equalling fewer volunteers. Beyond this rather elementary observation, it is in the nature of paedophilia that the greater number of us will channel their whole energies into working with and for children (however misguidedly), whether this be as youth workers, teachers, nurses or, yes, as scoutleaders. Individuals who would have been of immense value to a group such as PIE either never contemplated joining because their attention was squarely focussed on working with the young, or shied away from deeper commitment for fear the publicity would disable them from continuing such work. True, many of these people themselves inadvertently abet the social conditioning of youth, but they are sincere in the belief that their work is beneficial and constructive. The essential point is that a paedophile’s natural first loyalty is to children – not to other paedophiles.

Unlike gays and feminists, who seek the company of people like themselves for social and sexual reasons, and then develop a political consciousness within that society, drawing strength from their community for ‘coming out’ and embarking on political work, paedophiles do not tend to gravitate so readily into one another’s company, (those that would have no means of doing so, of course) and the breeding medium for radicalisation is so much less fertile for this often-overlooked reason. In the company of a thirteen year old boy one can learn a good deal about the realities of powerlessness and dependence and the frustration of being thirteen in this society – all the more so from a girl – but this is a long way from assimilating a commitment to political struggle. The younger the children a paedophile seeks for company, the more this argument applies.

Thanks in large part to PIE, some paedophiles did befriend one another, but all too often in such meetings the differences of perspective were more apparent than the congruences. There was a commonality of interest without a commonality of awareness. Therefore among paedophiles this consciousness has to be cultivated in an altogether more deliberate and artificial way. Those paedophiles who regard themselves (sometimes mistakenly) as the most revolutionary are generally those that move largely in gay circles. Undoubtedly, coming out as a paedophile via the gay movement increases one’s exposure to radical though – though anyone acquainted with CHE might laugh at this – but it may also leave one with a smug and false sense of security.

While my own sexual tastes extend to eighteen or nineteen year old guys, I confess I never had much inclination to join a gay group or frequent any gay clubs. I think my perspective might have been rather less parochial if I had, but this is to illustrate that there are many paedophiles like myself who wish to work in close harmony with gay society, not to join it. To those who say, “So why didn’t PIE make more effort towards a rapprochement with radical gay groups?” I reply, “Why didn’t the stronger, more numerous, and better-equipped gay groups approach PIE with advice, criticism, active support, even when we were reeling in the wake of an Old Bailey trial?” Why should we have had to make all the running? Let me cite one or two instances of the positive vibrations PIE was receiving from the mighty ‘λ’.

At the 2nd annual conference of the IGA (Barcelona, 1980), the only group to abstain from a general motion calling on member organisations to support paedophile groups more vigorously was Britain’s CHE, who insisted on their exception being noted for the record. At GYM’s 1982 lobby of Parliament (which only twelve of some four hundred MPs felt obliged to attend), it was a vice-president of CHE, Martin Stevens, MP (Conservative, needless to say), who favoured the retention of the homosexual age of consent at twenty-one (for males), whilst others present were quite willing to negotiate an initial reduction to eighteen. Stevens’ rationale – if we may dignify it by that term – was that if homosexual behaviour was legally sanctioned among teenagers, “teenagers might in later years regret their youthful flings”. Similarly, at the IGA’s 1983 Vienna conference, it was Michael Brown of Britain’s Conservative Group for Homosexual Equality who supplied the most stentorian opposition to every paedophile motion put before the conference. In this case, where one of the motions called upon PIE to urge all other paedophile groups to affiliate as we had done, Brown was joined by Denmark’s F48, Norway’s DNF48, and Lavender Left of New York, who had apparently determined by explicit resolution to vote against all paedophile-supportive motions. The excellent ‘Gay Youth Charter’ composed by GYM in 1982 was rejected by CHE’s own conference until a reference to paedophilia had been expunged from it. A comparison between GYM’s ‘Gay Youth Charter’ and CHE’s ‘Charter for Gay Rights’, published in the same year, is extraordinary – the one is detailed, uncompromising, bold and lucid; the other bland, timid and cursory.

CHE’s dilemma was summarised by their own Law Reform Committee thus: “CHE has hitherto directed its campaign towards achieving equality under the law relating to heterosexual and homosexual behaviour. The reasons for this, while in large part tactical, are nonetheless important. The argument for equality is much easier to explain to a prejudiced audience and can be forcefully advocated on grounds of simple justice.” It goes on to ask, “Would adopting a position in favour of the abolition of all ages of consent laws risk appearing, in the eyes of the general public, to be so extreme as to make (CHE’s) aims on other issues more difficult to achieve; or has it reached the position where no further significant advance can be made without working – in collaboration with other organisations – for reform of these and the other laws relating to sexual behaviour generally?” [11]

It was the same dilemma which confronted broader civil rights groups like the NCCL (National Council for Civil
