Mohamed Al Fayed accused of sexually harassing young staff

Mohamed Al Fayed, the former owner of Harrods, has been accused of sexually harassing young employees, including a 17-year-old debutante he recruited.

The tycoon, who is also a former owner of Fulham Football Club and still owns the Ritz Hotel in Paris, is accused of “grooming” the women to persuade them to have sex.

He used the reputation of his son, Dodi — who died in a car crash alongside Diana, Princess of Wales — to pursue one employee, according to a Channel 4 Dispatches investigation to be broadcast this evening.

Mr Fayed, 88, is alleged to have used his power at the department store in Knightsbridge, west London, to target young employees over a 13-year period.

The billionaire is the latest high-profile person to be accused of sexual impropriety after the allegations against the film producer Harvey Weinstein spread to include Hollywood stars, media figures and politicians.

Cheska Hill-Wood told the programme she was a 17-year-old aspiring actress who had recently completed a photoshoot as a debutante when she was approached “out of the blue” to become Mr Fayed’s junior personal assistant in 1993.

She claimed that after starting work for the businessman he told her that Dodi, a film producer, might be able to help her acting career as he was making a prequel to his hit film Hook.

They went to Mr Fayed’s flat where he asked her to change into a swimming costume before he filmed her so that his son could see her “shape”, she claimed.

Mr Fayed is then alleged to have kissed her and after she pushed him off to have responded: “I need you around me all the time. If you don’t sleep with me, I can’t help you with your acting career.”

Ms Hill-Wood, now an actress and gallery manager of the Fine Art Society in Mayfair, said that she left the flat and did not return to work for Mr Fayed.

She told the programme that she did not take any further action as: “It would have been the word of a 17-year-old nobody, I guess, against the word of a very powerful business tycoon . . . I think it is important that the public know what he is. That he is a predator.”

Two other women, both anonymous, described Mr Fayed repeatedly kissing them on the lips, giving them cash and offering them flats, cars and promotion.

One, who was a 20-year-old student working at Harrods during the summer of 2005, said: “He just sort of, was trying to make out that it was all very innocent and he was being a charming old man, which he clearly wasn’t. It’s unbelievable how you can be so disgusted by someone and yet be so afraid of someone, how someone can have so much power. [He was] a very frightening man.”

Another woman, aged 19 when she worked as a sales assistant at Harrods from 2005-06, said that she felt if she was being “groomed” by Mr Fayed.

“He would try and turn the peck on the lips into something more. He would sort of try and be a bit more forceful and hold my head and I would really have to pull away,” she said. “He eventually said, ‘Would you have sexual relations with me?’ So I just said, ‘That’s something that I’d never do’.”

Mr Fayed sued Vanity Fair after it reported a series of allegations in 1995 including sexual harassment and an obsession with personal hygiene. The case was later withdrawn, with each side reportedly agreeing to pay its own legal costs, estimated to total £1.6 million.

Dispatches said it had not received a response from Mr Fayed “to specific allegations made by the women in the programme”. He could not be reached for comment yesterday.


Retired ‘vicar to the stars’, 84, who was accused of a string of sex attacks against young girls during church concerts is CLEARED

  • Retired vicar Guy Bennett, 84, was accused of sexually assaulting 11 young girls
  • Bennett worked at a church is Surrey and was chaplain at the London Palladium


The jury had heard that Mr Bennett had previously admitted four counts of indecent assault in 1999 after ‘almost identical activity’ to his latest trial. 

When he worked at the London Paladium, it regularly hosted the Royal Variety Performance and ITV’s Live From The Palladium. 


Guy Bennett trial: Former Oxted vicar claims past convictions spurred untrue sex assault allegations involving 11 girls and women

Guy Bennett, 85, was previously jailed in 1999 for sex assaults on girls and women aged 11 to 19, jurors heard on Tuesday (September 26)

27 SEP 2017

A former vicar, accused of indecently assaulting 11 young girls and women, says he has been unfairly damned by rumours and knowledge of his past conviction for sex offences, a jury was told on Tuesday (September 26).

Guy Bennett, who was Rector of Oxted from 1972 to 1998, denies 24 offences of indecent assault and one of outraging public decency.

His offending is alleged to have taken place between 1975 and 1992.

The alleged crimes are said to have been committed on girls and women aged 11 to 19 while he was teaching and serving the church.

His defence counsel Paul Walker told jurors at Guildford Crown Court his client’s “tactile” behaviour was now being mis-remembered as sexually motivated because people knew he was jailed in 1999 for sex assaults on young girls.

He said this information had not only been given to the jury by the prosecution at the current trial but had been publicised in the media 18 years ago.

Mr Walker said when the trial had begun two weeks ago and jurors heard the prosecution’s version of events, it was easy to imagine how they had felt.

He said members of the jury must have thought: “I’m not going to let him get away with it, if I can help it.”

Mr Walker said: “It’s a normal gut reaction.”

But he reminded jurors Bennett was only guilty if a jury was sure he had committed the offences. If they thought he “very probably” was guilty, that was simply not good enough, he stressed.

“Judge the case on the evidence – not on prejudice,” urged Mr Walker, who added the burden of proof was on the prosecution.

“Mr Bennett doesn’t have to prove his innocence,” he said.

Mr Walker said Bennett took a “tactile” approach to his teaching, and was rather “eccentric” in manner.

“At school, not everyone appreciated his manner,” said Mr Walker. “Some of the children thought he was a bit touchy-feely.

“They made up names about him and spread rumours about him. They thought his behaviour creepy and they thought he must have a sinister motive,” he said.

‘Creepy behaviour’

This reputation was aggravated by Bennett wearing “Speedos” at a local pool party.

Mr Walker said Bennett had pleaded guilty 18 years ago to indecently assaulting three schoolgirls on legal advice: “He regretted that later,” he said.

He said many people offered up pleas of guilty – sometimes to spare their families the ordeal of a long trial and also because they were tempted by the promise of a discounted sentence.

“These convictions returned to haunt my client,” he said.

Mr Walker said that as a result of a woman making certain allegations, police had launched a fresh investigation and former pupils had been interviewed which led to a further wave of complaints.

What was once regarded as “creepy behaviour,” he said, now “morphed into something more serious”.

But Mr Walker said none of the allegations had been corroborated and there were dangers in matters becoming coloured by gossip, exaggeration and the telling of tales down the years.

Mr Bennett, now 84, lives at Lewes Road, East Grinstead. He denies all charges.

The trial continues.


Complainant claims former Oxted rector Guy Bennett would ‘press his groin’ into schoolgirls’ backs, court hears

Guy Bennett is accused of indecently assaulting 11 girls and women aged 11 to 19 between 1975 and 1992

20 Sept 2017

A former pupil of an Oxted junior school has told a court how her teacher used to press his groin into her back and lean over her while pretending to check her work.

Former rector at St Mary’s Church and former teacher at St Mary’s Junior School, Guy Bennett, is accused of indecently assaulting 11 girls and women aged 11 to 19 between 1975 and 1992.

The 84-year-old, who now lives in Lewes Road, East Grinstead, faces 24 charges of indecent assault against 11 alleged victims, and one charge of outraging public decency.


Bennett was jailed in 1999 after he pleaded guilty to indecent assaults against four victims.

The complainant was questioned by defence barrister Paul Walker who asked her questions about the differences between statements she gave to police in 1998, before this conviction, and a statement she gave in 2016.

Mr Walker asked the complainant why her 1998 statement made no reference to Bennett touching her while her 2016 statement references his groin pressed against her back.

Mr Walker said: “What we say is he may have got too close to you, invaded your personal space, but at no time did he press his groin against your back.”

The complainant denied this, saying that when she said Bennett did not touch her, she meant with his hands and she always maintained and had a “clear recollection” of his groin touching her back.

The trial continues.



Former Oxted rector Guy Bennett ‘used his position to touch young girls inappropriately’, court hears

The 84-year-old is standing trial accused of indecently assaulting 11 girls and women

12 SEP 2017

A former rector of St Mary’s Church in Oxted used his position to touch young girls inappropriately, a court has heard.

Guy Bennett is accused of indecently assaulting 11 girls and women aged 11-19 between 1975 and 1992.

The 84-year-old, who now lives in Lewes Road, East Grinstead, faces 24 charges of indecent assault against 11 alleged victims and one charge of outraging public decency.

Opening the case at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday (September 12), prosecutor Eloise Marshall told the court Mr Bennett is accused of touching the young girls indecently in a number of different ways.

These include squeezing their breasts, putting his hand in their underwear and trying to remove their trousers.

Ms Marshall told the court Bennett used his position as rector of St Mary’s Church to gain access to the girls.

She said: “The crown’s case is that Mr Bennett used his position as vicar to touch young girls inappropriately.

“By inappropriately, what I mean is that the touching was sexual and he did this in all manner of ways.

“He used his position to arrange contact with these girls and then touched them in ways which may seem inadvertent but we say are sexual.”

…Bennett is accused of masturbating in front of a young girl in a London theatre.

‘Chaplain to the stars’

In his police interview after being arrested for the offences last year, Ms Marshall said that Bennett admitted “some touching may have taken place” but, if it had, it was inadvertent and there was no sexual intent.

In the interview Bennett said he was a “tactile person” and he treated all parishioners the same, the court heard.

The jury was also told of Bennett’s previous convictions in 1999 when he pleaded guilty to the indecent assault of four victims in actions that are described by Ms Marshall as “almost identical” to the offences currently alleged.

The defendant was chaplain to the London Palladium from 1972 to 1998 which earned him the title “chaplain to the stars”.

He has written a book about the celebrities he has known. He was also a friend of Harrods boss Mohamed Al Fayed who lived in the Oxted area while Bennett was rector there.

The trial continues.

Surrey vicar ‘touched girls at Sunday school’

A former vicar indecently touched girls during Sunday school outings, church concerts or while teaching, a court has heard.

Guy Bennett, 84, of Lewes Road, East Grinstead, West Sussex, is facing 24 historical charges of indecent assault against 11 victims.

It is alleged he assaulted the young girls while rector of St Mary’s church in Oxted between 1975 and 1991.

He has denied the charges as well as one charge of outraging public decency.

All but one of the girls he allegedly touched were between the ages of 11 and 15, Guildford Crown Court heard.

It is claimed he inappropriately touched the 10 schoolgirls and one 19-year-old as they put on choir robes, climbed down ladders and as he taught them at a nearby primary school.

‘Tactile person’

Opening the case, prosecutor Eloise Marshall told the jury: “The touching was sexual and he did it in all manner of ways.

“He used his position in the church as a school teacher and school governor to touch them.”

Jurors were told that Mr Bennett had four previous convictions for sexually assaulting four 11-year-old girls, dating back to 1999.

Bennett initially denied those charges but pleaded guilty on the first day of his trial, it was said.

Ms Marshall said: “What they describe is almost identical activity to what our witnesses describe.”

She added: “The defendant admits there may have been touching, but says any touching was inadvertent and had no sexual intent.

“He said he was a tactile person and that touching was part of his manner with all of his parishioners both young and old.

“Other people have said that he didn’t seem to be like that with young boys.”

He also denied a separate charge of outraging public decency. The alleged crimes span a period of 21 years.

When each of the 25 allegations was read out to him, the defendant replied “not guilty.”

Bennett, 83, was remanded on bail until September 11 to face trial. The alleged offences were said to have been committed between 1977 and 1998.

At an earlier hearing before Christmas, his defence counsel Paul Walker said there might be a mixture of “misunderstandings, confusions and fabrication” involved in the complaints

The court was told that the forthcoming trial would last for about three weeks.

Bennett was chaplain to the London Palladium from 1972 to 1998 which earned him the title “chaplain to the stars.”

Retired vicar pal of Diana lover Dodi Fayed appears in court accused of molesting children over two decades

He’s facing more than 20 charges involving a number of victims

17th December 2016,

A FORMER vicar and friend of Princess Diana’s ex-boyfriend has appeared before a judge accused of sexually abusing children over the course of two decades.

Former churchman Guy Bennett faced new charges after two further women told police he had indecently assaulted them.

He was already facing more than 20 similar charges involving other victims.

The white-haired 83-year-old, who sparked outcry when the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said he could not be barred from wearing a dog collar, entered no plea to a new total of 24 charges of indecent assault and one count of outraging public decency.

A close friend of Princess Diana’s former partner’s father, Harrod’s boss Mohamed Al Fayed, Bennett was formerly chaplain at a Butlins holiday camp and for the stars of Theatreland in London when he gave spiritual guidance to performers at the Palladium Theatre in London.

Eloise Marshall, prosecuting at Guildford Crown Court on Friday, said Bennett now faced two further charges of indecent assault – with a total of 12 alleged victims – since he last appeared before a court on remand, accused of abusing children in London and in the affluent village of Oxted, Surrey, where he had worked as a vicar since 1972.

Oxford-educated Bennett, now from Lewes Road, East Grinstead, West Sussex, had taught religious education part-time at a village school and had worked at three churches there, living in a vicarage.


Lionel Blair was questioned about being at Elm Guest House. 

It came amid reports he had enjoyed a drink at Elm Guest House, in Barnes, south London, which is believed to have hosted child sex parties for VIPs in the 1970s and 1980s

The 84-year-old entertainer reportedly spoke to Metropolitan Police officers at his home in Surrey.

Nine men made allegations against Cliff Richard

….one of nine to come forward and accuse the veteran pop star of abusing him at the Elm Guest House in Barnes, West London, where VIPs were said to have abused boys.


One of Sir Cliff’s accusers is one of Britain’s worst sex offenders who is serving several life sentences for a series of rapes and sex attacks.

The man, who suffers with ‘severe’ mental illness and is a paranoid schizophrenic, claimed that Sir Cliff sexually abused him in 1982 – and blamed the singer for turning him into a rapist.

The man told The Sun he was interviewed around 30 times by a number of police forces,

He claimed he took drugs to the guest house but when he arrived he was sexually assaulted by Sir Cliff in a room in front of other people.

Wonder who  “one of Britain’s most notorious sex offenders who is serving several life sentences for a series of rapes and sex attacks,” and “paranoid schizophrenic” is referring to.

Former Oxted vicar, Guy Bennett appears in court charged with 22 historic sex offences

Guy Bennett appeared before magistrates in Redhill where he entered no plea

A former Oxted vicar has appeared in court charged with 22 counts of indecent assault against young children.

Guy Bennett, 83, of Lewes Road, East Grinstead, faced magistrates in Redhill where he entered no plea.

The offences, allegedly committed against nine victims under the age of 16 at the time, reportedly took place over a 15-year period between 1977 and 1992.

The alleged incidents took place in the Oxted and London areas.

  • The Rev Guy Bennett from the diocese of Guilford which borders the Diocese of Chichester is another convicted child sex offender who came out of prison in 2000 and immediately held himself out as a vicar at, at least, one church service in the Diocese of Chichester where he now lives. One of Bennett’s victims has been told by Church authorities that (i) Bennett only admitted the sexual offences in 1999 to spare the victims the court hearing, but wasn’t really guilty: and (ii) that he is no longer a risk to children because the offences for which he was convicted dated back to the 1970s and 1980s. In fact he admitted only a limited number of offences and plea bargained his way to a nine month sentence of which he served only 4 ½ months.
  • In 2009 another victim reported to the police that she was sexually abused by Bennett and a Catholic priest in the diocese of Arundel & Brighton which overlaps the CofE Diocese of Chichester for five years from the late 1980s to 1993.

Whilst the CPS refused to prosecute Bennett again when the new victim reported the case in 2009, the Diocesan authorities should have carried out a full risk assessment based on this new allegation and realised that Bennett is a compulsive liar manipulating the authorities to remain in contact with and have authority over children.

Lionel Blair blasts claims linking him to VIP paedophile ring after he is questioned by detectives 

  • Metropolitan Police officers reportedly questioned entertainer at his home
  • Came amid reports he had once enjoyed a drink at the Elm Guest House
  • House is believed to have hosted child sex parties for VIPs in 70s and 80s
  • But Mr Blair says he has never heard of the guest house

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

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

Satanists: Sammy Davis Jr between top-ranking military officer Michael Aquino and Anton LaVey, government investigator and founder of the Satanic Church



Jacques Vallee with Anton LaVey and Aime Michel.

the following diary entry of UFO research legend Jacques Vallee (author of the seminal ufological works Passport to Magonia and Messengers of Deception) regarding a dinner at his house with the notorious founder of the Church of Satan, Anton LaVey.

LaVey shot to fame in the late 1960s, gaining widespread media coverage, and shocking mainstream Christianity, with his founding and promotion of the Church of Satan. LaVey was as much a colourful celebrity as he was the ‘Black Pope’ though, and his and Vallee’s paths first crossed in the esoteric mileu of California in 1970, when a young writer who was interviewing Vallee suggested a meeting with his friend LaVey.

In Volume Two of his Forbidden Science journal (suitably titled “California Hermetica”), Vallee describes his first encounter with the head of the Church of Satan. Setting off at “a suitably late hour”, he recounts, they drove to 6114 California Street, “a black house with permanently closed shutters”, where LaVey made what can only be described as an appropriate entrance.

A black tail-less cat greeted us on the front steps. Someone opened a round spy-hole, recognized Art and unlocked the heavy door. We met a pleasant, shapely blonde woman named Diane, LaVey’s wife. With a flourish she introduced us into a purple parlor full of books, with a fireplace in one angle, a skeleton in a glass cabinet, a gravestone as coffee table.

We took our seats, avoiding the stately chaise percée. Of the High Priest there was no sign until the mantelpiece pivoted away, startling us. A bald head adorned with a pointed black beard appeared at ground level and a large man looking for all the world like Mephistopheles climbed out, idly twisting a five-pointed star. Wearing a green sweater, the jovial diabolist shook our hands and sat among us. While Diane served coffee, Anton assured us modestly, like a good pastor, that he sincerely believed in his religion, even if he did not trust his disciples farther than he could throw his massive Wurlitzer organ.

Vallee visited LaVey many more times during the 1970s (their talks at times “interrupted by Christians who evidently thought they could save Anton’s soul by throwing heavy objects against his house”). Come 1982 though, and Vallee notes (in Forbidden Science Volume 3) that the Black Pope “seemed to have lost much of his charisma and power”. At one dinner date, the odd esoteric pairing sound awfully normal as they “commiserated about the state of our respective homes” and discussed movies and computer games.

Computer games were once again the topic at another dinner in 1984, when LaVey had asked Vallee for advice on a computer to use for word processing. During the evening, Vallee’s daughter showed LaVey her Atari, and how to play games on it – giving rise to one of the great phrases in any book, “we enjoyed seeing the Black Pope playing Donkey Kong”:

Anton and Diane came to see us Tuesday. He had called me for advice: Diane is looking for a computer she could use for word processing. They had dinner at our house, where my daughter demonstrated her Atari. She also instructed Anton in the use of videogames, so we enjoyed seeing the Black Pope playing Donkey Kong.

Tesler took his cameras away from the studio to Battersea Fun Fair… it was a shade overlong and could have been trimmed by a couple of minutes… still, the sight of Davis leading the children around like a Pied Piper was a sheer joy to watch, especially the final shot of them skipping one by one across a bridge which seemed to dissolve into the distant trees. (EDIT: Battersea Bridge Road??) This sequence was followed by Davis going into a hat shop in search of a typically British outfit.

Aided by Lionel Blair, who was at his best, we had a sequence rich in comedy and movement” (Note- thankfully this show survives in the ABC archive)

Light entertainment in the best traditions has been Lionel’s forte, whether on The Royal Variety Show or at the London Palladium (where Guy Bennett was chaplain)
Lionel’s big break came at the Royal Variety Command Performance at the Prince of Wales Theatre in front of the Queen Mother in 1961.

During the comedy sketch Lionel is cast as a posh Saville Row-style shop assistant while Davis is an American looking to become posh. The subsequent eight-minute routine sees Lionel match the legendary US entertainer step for step to rapturous applause.

“Working with Sammy was amazing,” he recalled.

“Sammy knew where I was at and was unbelievable to work with, just wonderful and in the number gave the ending to me.

“We became good friends. Meeting and performing with him was the highlight of my career.”

Sammy gave Lionel a silver dollar, which he treasures. On the back reads the inscription: “To Lionel Blair. Because I dig you. Love Sammy Davis Jr.”

Meeting Sammy was great for me but I also went to school with Mike and Bernie (Winters).

Lionel Blair is waving at me from a street corner. ‘Yoo hoo! Yoo hoo!’ He is brightly tanned, dressed a bit like a sailor boy in a tight-fitting blue and white outfit, waving a Rothman’s cigarette in a long plastic holder and beaming happily as passing drivers toot and yell ‘Lionel! Lionel!’.

He couldn’t look more camp if he tried.

He counts Joan Collins among his glamorous exes (‘A dear friend, just lovely — I think Percy is her nicest husband yet’) and his friends include Paul McCartney (‘I used to dye my hair, too, but I think it’s better natural’), Bond actor Roger Moore (‘How many wives have I known? I’ve only known him since Dorothy’), Simon Cowell (‘he always tells me I look wonderful’), Lulu (‘wasn’t she brilliant at the Commonwealth Games’) and Bruce Forsyth

He choreographed and appeared on endless shows at the London Palladium, formed his dance troupe, became best friends with Sammy Davis Jr, appeared in The Beatles’ film A Hard Day’s Night.

He also became the king of panto. But that suddenly stopped about ten years ago. During one performance in Stockport, as part of the act, he asked a boy in the audience his name. The youngster retorted: ‘Touch my nuts and you’re dead!’

For years, people joked that Lionel was gay. It’s been a running gag on Radio 4’s I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue.

One day at a cricket match organised by Michael Parkinson, a man called him a ‘fairy’

Lionel punched him. ‘He had to go to hospital!’

Guy Bennett attended Wells Theological College at the same time as paedophile Bishop Peter Ball
Ball entered Wells Theological College in 1954 and received two years of training in preparation for ordination.

2011: Guy Bennett is now visited regularly by safeguarding officers. Of serious concern is that he is now living in a Diocese where a number of ministers have been accused of child sexual offences and remain in ministry, others were convicted after decades of allegations.




Among religious orders and institutions to be investigated are English Benedictine congregations, and the Anglican Diocese of Chichester in West Sussex.

The reputation of Sussex as a paedophile hotspot now has further credence thanks to child sex abuse convictions in the overlapping Anglican diocese of Chichester and of the culture of cover-up that also existed in the Church of England.

From the 1970s to the 1990s there were sporadic and low-profile investigations into allegations of sexual abuse by vicars there but none got as far as the courts.

In 2011 Judge Butler-Sloss was commissioned to investigate the handling of child sex abuse reports about these Anglican vicars in the Diocese of Chichester but her report was subsequently found to contain inaccuracies and flaws in statements given to her by the Anglican administration.  Judge Butler-Sloss has already been forced to stand down from leading the current child abuse inquiry because of her attempt to prevent a senior Anglican bishop from being investigated, and the fact that her brother Sir Michael (later Lord) Havers was the Attorney-General in the Thatcher Government that is now heavily implicated in a high-level cover-up of child sex abuse.
Why did the CPS abandon investigation into Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor?

Why did the CPS abandon investigation into Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor?

Why did it instruct Sussex police to drop a 2003 investigation into the head of the Catholic Church in the UK? And second, why did the CPS decide that its reasons remain confidential?

The Times newspaper had accused the Cardinal of moral failure and, most intriguingly, reported allegations of paedophile hotspots’ in the Catholic Church in five Catholic dioceses including Arundel and Brighton.

By any measure this cannot now be a tenable position, given all the subsequent revelations of child rape on an industrial scale in religious institutions both Anglican and Catholic Church, and what is now being exposed by way of Establishment cover-up. There is also the related matter of a number of Sussex police officers being investigated for gross misconduct over investigations into a complaint about an assault by Savile in the early 1970s

It is time for the Crown Prosecution Service to make public its reasons for dropping the investigation into Cardinal Cormac Murphy-


Official inquiries into prolonged failure to prevent child abuse in the Diocese of Chichester which includes Lewes brought up allegations against Bishop Peter Ball, of which he was later convicted.

The Rev Guy Bennett from the diocese of Guilford which borders the Diocese of Chichester is another convicted child sex offender who came out of prison in 2000 and immediately held himself out as a vicar at, at least, one church service in the Diocese of Chichester where he now lives.

Ardingly College (Peter Righton, Richard Alston, Robert Alston, Peter Ball chaplain there, The Secret Life of a Paedophile exposed a Chaplain at Ardingly, later Bishop John Neale, to have colluded with Righton.) is in Chichester Diocese.

Another week and another Sussex clergyman has been found to have used his position to commit sexual offences.

The numerous abuse scandals backing up at the Church of England’s door have raised questions of cover-ups, concerns over undue pressure from an Archbishops and even a royal and the threat of further payouts to victims.

A handful of internal inquiries have failed to stem the flow of court cases, with one campaigner asking: “What is wrong with the Diocese of Chichester?”

In the 1970s and 80s, we now know, Vickery House took advantage of young men, including a boy of 14, who came to him for spiritual guidance.

He shared victims with his former boss, Bishop of Lewes Peter Ball, who was jailed  for sexual crimes relating to 18 victims which took place as recently as 1992.

It was revealed that George Bell, the internationally-acclaimed wartime Bishop of Chichester, had assaulted a child in the 1940s, for which the Church has now paid compensation to the victim.

In all, seven Sussex churchmen in two years have been found to have committed sexual offences.

George Bell was ‘fond’ of paeodophile bishop Peter Ball and sponsored him for ordination, an inquiry has heard.

As former bishop of Chichester, Bell is considered one of Anglicanism’s heroes. However, it emerged in 2015 the Church of England paid £16,800 to the woman, known as Carol, in a legal settlement after she accused Bell of sexually abusing her as a child.

Now it can be revealed Peter Ball, who was jailed for a string of sex offences against teenagers and young men in 2015, was close friends with Bell.

Peter Ball
Bishop Ball sentenced to 32 months in prison but served only 16 months.

Ball was initially rejected in his attempt to become a priest in 1951 but Bell wrote to the selection panel in support of Ball’s application.

When Ball applied for ordination a second time it was Bell who sponsored him through the process.

In his witness statement to an inquiry investigating child sex abuse within the Church of England, Ball denied that Bell had ‘overruled’ the selection board allowing him to be ordained.

However he said that after his ordination Bell would visit his parish to take services, adding he was ‘aware that he was “fond” of me’.

In response to a question about Bell’s involvement in his ordination, Ball told the inquiry: ‘It is not right therefore to say that Bishop Bell “overruled” the selection board in order for me to be ordained.

Bishop George Bell
Courtesy of Jimmy JamesBishop George Bell is an iconic figure for the Church of England and was bishop of Chichester from 1929 to 1958.

‘Although Bishop Bell had indicated in 1951 in a letter to the first Selection Board who did not recommend me for ministry that he would be “prepared to accept me for ordination” even though the Selection Board had not recommend me for training at that time, that is not how matters proceeded.’

He went on: ‘After theological college, it was Bishop Bell ultimately who did sponsored [sic] me for ordination, but with the approval of the Selection Board. Bishop Bell then placed me in the parish of Rottingdean where I undertook my first curacy.

‘He would visit my curacy on occasion to carry out confirmations and to take services.

‘We had a good working relationship; I was aware that he was “fond” of me. He was someone who I looked up to when I was a young curate starting out in the Church.’

Bell, who died in 1958, was revered by Anglicans before the abuse allegations against him emerged. However a report earlier this year heavily criticised the Church’s handling of the accusations and found it ‘rushed to judgement’ and failed to give proper consideration to Bell’s rights.

But the archbishop of Canterbury refused to back down and said a ‘significant cloud is left over his name’.

Ball went on to become bishop of Lewes in the diocese of Chichester and then bishop of Gloucester. He was accused of gross indecency against a 16-year-old in 1992 but escaped with a police caution after he received backing from a member of the Royal Family and a number of other establishment figures. He was told to step down from his role as a bishop. However he continued to minister in churches and schools until 2010 before he was eventually arrested.

At the age of 83 he was sentenced to 32 months for misconduct in public office and 15 months for indecent assaults in 2015. He was released after serving 16 months.

The independent inquiry into child sexual abuse has been investigation how the diocese of Chichester handled allegations of child sexual abuse as a case study for the wider Church of England.

In his concluding remarks today solicitor David Greenwood said the CofE was more ‘malign’ than the Catholic Church in its response to abuse and accused it of ‘a conscious effort to treat survivors badly’.

The archbishop of Canterbury in his evidence said he had ‘learnt to be ashamed again of the Church’ and warned child sexual abuse would ‘destroy the Church’ if not addressed.

The former Bishop of Chichester, Eric Kemp, unambiguously portrayed Ball as the victim of mischief makers in his (2006) memoirs: “Although it was not realized at the time, the circumstances which led to [Ball’s] early resignation were the work of mischief-makers. It was a very sad end to his ministry and his departure was a real loss to the Church which was, no doubt, what those who brought it about intended.” Kemp has been described as “one of the leading Anglo-Catholics of his generation and one of the most influential figures in the Church of England in the last quarter of the twentieth century.”

Chichester under Kemp was one of the last bastions for clergy opposed to female ordinations, and it attracted a lot of openly gay clergy.

Kemp and Queen Elizabeth 1986

When Kemp appointed the flamboyant Ball as his assistant in the post of bishop of Lewes, he fitted in immediately. Kemp moved in elevated London circles and was a good friend of Canon Anthony Caesar, sub dean of the Chapel Royal and the Queen’s domestic chaplain. And Ball often accompanied Kemp on his London trips.

She wanted to exclude some of the survivor’s allegations against Bishop Peter Ball, in a bid to protect the Church of England.

He says she told him she “cared very much about the Church”.

Mr Johnson, who suffered assaults by a number of clergymen when he was a choirboy in the Church of England Diocese in Chichester, said he felt during her review of Church abuse, Baroness Butler-Sloss had been “showing bias and wasn’t being impartial”.
The Rt Rev Peter Ball, who was bishop of Gloucester and bishop of Lewes in East Sussex, was charged with two counts of indecent assault and one of misconduct in a public office, following her investigation into abuse in the diocese of Chichester during the 1970s and 1980s.

Chaplain of Geelong C of E Grammar School

Church of England accused of cover-up over abuse claims against chaplain at school attended by Prince Charles

Reverend Norman Smith, accused of raping a pupil at Geelong Grammar School, Australia, now faces further accusations

The Church of England has been accused of a cover-up over allegations that a chaplain at the Australian school attended by the Prince of Wales was a paedophile.

At the Australian royal commission into child abuse in September, the Reverend Norman Smith was accused of raping a pupil at Geelong Grammar School in the late 1960s.

Now a 68-year-old former churchwarden has come forward to say that the Church dismissed his earlier claims that he was abused by Mr Smith in Sussex in the early 1960s.

Alan Baker, from Gloucestershire, has also written to Prince Charles to ask if he can provide any information that would help his case for damages.

“I would like to know what the links were between Geelong and the Church of England and the Anglican Communion,” said Mr Baker.

Was it a coincidence that Smith abused me and then moved to Australia and then abused a child in Australia and moved back to the UK to take up a position as a vicar? The Church of England has treated me disgracefully and dismissed my complaints even though they must have known about the Australian allegations.”

Mr Smith died in 2012 and an obituary stated “Norman would certainly have known him [Charles] and administered Communion to him”.

Geelong Grammar: Child Sexual Abuse Royal Commission report set to be tabled in parliament

February 13, 2017

SURVIVOR of abuse at Geelong Grammar School has slammed its trademark positive education program as “crap”, as the royal commission’s findings on the elite Corio school are set to be tabled in Parliament.

Libby O’Brien attended Geelong Grammar in the 1980s and said she hoped the commission’s report did not “get swept under the carpet”.

“There are so many more perpetrators out there,” she said, despite the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse having been in progress since 2013.

“The cover-ups were really frightening,” she said. “I just want to make sure (the royal commission finding) doesn’t go under the radar.”

Ms O’Brien said the decades-long fight for justice had been “an extremely painful process”. She and a group of survivors and friends covered Geelong Grammar’s gates with coloured ribbons in February of last year, transforming it into a “Loud Fence” symbolising those who were sexually abused and couldn’t be heard.

“I’m so sick of telling this story,” Ms O’Brien said. “I keep getting slapped in the face — it’s really, really hard.”

In a November, 2016, submission to the royal commission, counsel assisting David Lloyd said former Geelong Grammar principal John Lewis had failed to protect students under his care.

“Mr Lewis did not treat the issue of child sexual abuse seriously and preferred the reputation of the school to the interests and welfare of the students,” Mr Lloyd said.

A spokesman for Geelong Grammar said the school would be responding to the royal commission’s findings when they become available.

The school was at the heart of a debate in South Australian politics last weekend, when it emerged SA schools had forked out more than $620,000 for Geelong Grammar to teach educators from Adelaide’s northern suburbs how to “nurture and sustain positive relationships”. SA Opposition treasury spokesman Rob Lucas described the program as a “massive waste of taxpayers’ money”.

A spokesman for the SA Department for Communities and Social Inclusion said Geelong Grammar was “one of the world leaders in the adoption of positive education”.

Ms O’Brien said she was “pretty disgusted” that the school was profiting from a program espousing student wellbeing.

“It’s such crap,” she said.

She urged anyone with information on historical abuses to go to the authorities.

“Anyone who knew anything, just report it to police,” she said. “Every report counts.”

Commissioners are holding a public hearing on Catholic Church authorities until February 27. From March 6 they will hold hearings on Commonwealth and State governments, the Uniting Church, Anglican Church, Yeshivah Melbourne and Bondi, and Australian Christian churches and Pentecostal authorities.

British Victim of Clergy Abuse Speaks out 352 Lux Mag November 19, 2010

Lucy Duckworth, who protested against paedophile priests in Rome on Friday, was just five years old when she was first abused at her Sunday school in the quiet village of Oxted in Surrey.

Duckworth was abused at All Saints Church until she was 11 by a “paedophile ring” involving a Catholic priest, his helper and a Church of England vicar, who was later jailed for abuse of minors.

“They’d take me into a room and abuse me in front of a poor man with Down’s Syndrome who was told to watch the door and make sure no-one came in,” said Duckworth, a member of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP).

“I can’t tell you the psychological damage, I’m haunted by what happened every day,” she told AFP.


The vicar, Guy Bennett, was sentenced to nine months in prison by the Old Bailey court in London in 1999 for indecently assaulting three 11-year-old girls between 1976 and 1988.

He denied four further offences and, when the prosecution said it would not be in the public interest to pursue them, they were simply left on file.

Duckworth said that Bennett had simply moved away from the area and was still working for the Church of England — a common trend in cases of predator priests whose crimes have often been covered up by senior clergy.

The police launched an investigation into the other priest who abused me and got detailed statements from a lot of victims at the Sunday school, but the case was dropped the minute he denied everything,” she said.

Vicar Jailed for Fondling Schoolgirls

Birmingham Evening Mail (England), May 29, 1999

The Rev Guy Bennett, who was Rector of Oxted and Tandridge in Surrey for 26 years, admitted to three offences indecent assaulting three 11-year-old girls between 1976 and 1988.

Judge Giles Forrester jailed Bennett – who was also chaplain to the London Palladium theatre – for nine months for each offence, and ordered that the sentences should run concurrently.

The court had heard that Bennett was a governor of St Mary’s School, Oxted, and taught the 11-year-olds religious education.

He had fondled the girls on a school trip to the Isle of Wight, following a school play and behind a desk during a lesson.

Bennett, the father of two daughters, separated from his wife some years ago.

He was a churchman, a teacher and a school governor.

He was living in the Oxted vicarage when he was charged, and a Church of England spokesman confirmed Bennett was suspended from St Mary’s in September when the police inquiry was launched.

He had been rector there since 1972 and also taught religious education part-time at a local school.



After studying at Oxford University and Wells Theological College, one of his Bennett’s first jobs was as chaplain in Butlin’s holiday camp at Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, in 1963.


The way to stardom for so many of today’s top entertainers has been regularly documented over the years and it is a well known fact that the likes of Dave Allen, Des O’Connor, Charlie Drake, Ted Rogers, Roy Hudd, Jimmy Tarbuck, Johnny Ball, Mike Newman, Freddie Davis, Michael Barrymore, Jimmy Cricket, Clinton Ford, William G. Stewart, Russ Hamilton and many more, all began their careers as Butlin Redcoats


Billy Butlin  gave away hundreds of holidays to clergy and church workers. The chaplains department was always regarded as an important part of the Butlin’s organisation. The chaplin would always attend the weekly meetings of the heads of departments, and his word carried weight.


For many years, Guy Bennett had been a voluntary chaplain who visited theatres interacting with celebrities.

Actor John Osborne
Friendly with celebrities...while Guy Bennett was rector at St Mary’s–  Nolan daughter of actor John Osborne, lived at his house as a teenager.
Rev Guy Bennett, “The ungodly abductor”,  accused by actor John Osborne, of abducting his daughter at age 16;
Osborne and Gilliatt were married for five years and became the parents of his only natural daughter, Nolan.[26] For his 50th birthday in 1979, John Osborne had a party for 50 at the Garrick Club
Osborne had an abusive relationship with his daughter: he cast her out of his house when she was seventeen; they never spoke again.[27]
Guy Bennett had far more in common with Osborne than Nolan did. He Was stagestruck. For many years, he had been a voluntary chaplain who visited theatres on behalf of the Actors’ Church Union. He was chaplain to the London Palladium …
The rector (Bennett) and his then wife were entertained by the Osbornes at Christmas Place during Nolan’s time there and they went to the summer garden parties.

Survivor Duckworth is shocked Guy Bennett is still able to attend church in East Grinstead and use the title “Reverend”.
She became aware of his attendances at an East Grinstead Church following a campaign to the Diocese of Chichester.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby said in a letter he is powerless to prevent him from referring to himself as “Reverend” or wearing a clerical collar.

She made a complaint of sexual abuse against Bennett to Surrey Police in 2008, but following the arrest and investigation of three men in their 70s, the Crown Prosecution Service failed to authorise any charges. After raising the issue with the Archbishop and receiving his reply, Ms Duckworth said: “It leaves me feeling bemused, baffled, angry, frustrated and absolutely shocked that this is happening. If he’s powerless to remove convicted child abusers from the institution then they’ve got some real questions to be asking themselves.”

Similar happenings in Guy Bennett’s area:

Paedophile teacher Bernard Haunch sentenced to life for historic sex attacks

A paedophile teacher who raped an 11-year-old girl on a church floor in the 70s has been jailed for a string of historic sex offences.

He was also convicted of an indecent assault on a boy aged between seven and 11 years old having previously pleaded guilty to two other indecent assaults on the same boy, all between 1980 and 1983.

All the assaults took place while Haunch was a French teacher at the now-closed Fonthill Preparatory School in Coombe Hill Road, East Grinstead, Sussex.

Among his offences, Haunch arranged and took part in a gang rape on the girl on the floor of the school’s consecrated chapel. He was also a member of a group called the Paedophile Information Exchange.

Lord Janner: My friend Michael Jackson

June 26, 2009

Leading Jewish peer Lord Janner spoke today about his sorrow at the death of Michael Jackson, whom he regarded as “delightful company” and a good friend.

Lord Janner was introduced to the singer by psychic Uri Geller.

“He came to Parliament in 2002 and I showed him round,” Lord Janner recalled. “He had come to the UK to help fund-raise for Exeter Football Club, which Uri chaired.

“I showed him all around the Lords; it was a Friday and the staff were thrilled. When we got to the place where the Queen sits when she opens Parliament, he looked at the chair and then turned to his assistant. He said: ‘I want one exactly like that for my home.'”

Lord Janner said he had not been familiar with Jackson’s music when they first met but had had the opportunity to see him in California at Universal Studios. “We had dinner together and then I watched him dance. He was an incredible dancer. It was absolutely astonishing.”

The peer said he would miss the entertainer, whose death was announced today.


Michael Jackson ‘was running most sophisticated child sex operation the world has known’ – and was ‘abusing kids until the day he died’

29th January 2019

MICHAEL Jackson was running “the most sophisticated” child sex abuse operation “the world has known”, according to legal papers.

It is also believed the King of Pop was abusing kids “until the day he died” and has “many more” victims out there.

It comes following after the bombshell documentary Leaving Neverland featuring the pair’s horrifiyng child sex abuse claims against the star screened at the Sundance Film Festival


New Michael Jackson Lawsuit Alleges Child-Abuse Procurement Ring

A new lawsuit alleges Michael Jackson’s businesses were a front for grooming children to be abused


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


Michael Jackson child sex syndicate trial date set

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Prof Strang spoke in defense of Guy Bennett:

Conflicts of Interest – Psychiatrist Professor John Strang

Drugs policy advisor under fire over links to pharmaceutical company

A senior health advisor is facing criticism for his links to a company involved in a million pound drug trial.

Professor John Strang, an architect of drugs policy for more than a decade, is chief clinical investigator in a publicly funded heroin-antidote trial on thousands of prisoners.

Questions over Professor Strang’s links comes just months after he was criticised for failing to disclose ties to drug companies when applying for a government project.

The latest case has caused outrage among campaigners who say drug addiction policies have for too long been open to abuse from vested interests. The issue will be discussed by the Inter Ministerial Group on Drugs this week, The Independent has learnt.

Professor Strang has confirmed receipt of research grants, consultancy payments and travel expenses from several pharmaceutical companies who make medicines to treat addictions including Martindale Pharma and Cardinal Health.

Martindale, owned by Cardinal Health until May 2010, was the manufacturer chosen by the researchers in 2009 to supply pre-filled syringes of the drug Naloxone being used in the pilot study which could eventually involve 56,000 prisoners in England. The study, called N-ALIVE, hopes to reduce overdose deaths in the first month after release from prison.

The relationship between Professor Strang, director of the National Addiction Centre at King’s College London, with Martindale Pharma has publicly emerged – three years after the £1m grant trial was approved by the Indian Council of Medical Research.

Martindale, owned by Cardinal Health until May 2010, was the manufacturer chosen by the researchers in 2009 to supply pre-filled syringes of the drug Naloxone being used in the pilot study which could eventually involve 56,000 prisoners in England.

He did not formally declare any conflicts of interest to the ICMR during the application process – which the ICMR says complies with current rules.

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

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

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

And though Aitken met his future wife Lolicia at Inglewood, he also cheated on her with bondage prostitute Paula Strudwick, telling her to collect the right sort of birch branches from the woods outside the estate for sadomasochistic sex games.

Dominic Edward William Murray Walker OGS DL (born 28 June 1948) is a retired Anglican bishop.  He was a  canon and prebendary of Chichester Cathedral.

Walker had reported Leo Abse, George Thomas and Enoch Powell to the police as suspected paedophiles. He said that “A number of survivors independently gave the name of a particular MP being involved … I don’t believe there was any collusion in their stories.” Walker went on to tell senior clerics that Abse was named by three abuse survivors whom he had counselled when a vicar in Brighton in the 1980s.

Ex-teacher at Prince Charles’ old school Cheam School jailed for sexually abusing pupil in photography darkroom

Dec 6 2016

Nicholas Eggington, 58, taught at the renowned Cheam School where he befriended the young boy so he could create opportunities to be alone with him, a court heard

An ex-teacher at Prince Charles ‘ old school has been jailed for three years for sexually abusing a pupil in his classroom cupboard and a photography darkroom.

Nicholas Eggington, 58, taught at the renowned Cheam School where he befriended the young boy so he could create opportunities to be alone with him, a court heard.

He then abused him sexually on a number of occasions at the school – including his store cupboard, the photography club’s darkroom and other secluded areas of the school’s 100-acre grounds.

The preparatory school is steeped in history, having been founded nearly 400 years ago in 1645 and boasting former prime ministers and chancellors among its ex pupils.

The Duke of Edinburgh also went there.

Eggington, of Arnold, Notts, was convicted of two counts of indecent assault on a male child and two counts of gross indecency with a male child.

The offences relate to his time at Cheam School in Headley near Newbury, Berks, where he taught science between the late 80s and early 90s.

Eggington abused the boy, who was under 14, in the early 90s.

York Minster bell-ringers sacked over stance on ‘ongoing’ abuse risk to children

York Minster’s team of bell-ringers were disbanded because they refused to accept that a leading member of their group had been assessed as presenting an “ongoing risk” of child abuse, the minster’s governing body has said.

The Dean, the Very Rev Vivienne Faull, and Chapter also disclosed that they are still struggling to line up replacements to ring in Christmas later this month because others who had volunteered to help had been subjected to internet “intimidation” and in one case even a legal threat.

Although their statement does not specifically name the “member of the bell ringing band” at the centre of the allegations, he has been widely named as the society’s then president David Potter.

He has been the subject of two police investigations following allegations, which were subsequently dismissed without charge, made in 1999 and 2014.

The Minster commissioned a risk assessment on Mr Potter in line with Church of England guidelines.

“Following a detailed review of the matter and with guidance from national agencies, Chapter felt that the person presented an ongoing risk and that the potential severity of the risk meant they could not be reinstated,” they added.

“This decision was not accepted by the bell-ringing team.

“There was a reluctance to recognise the Minster’s concerns despite briefings with staff including our safeguarding officer. This culminated in Chapter’s decision to disband the team in October.”

Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley married another alleged paedophile:

I was shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach’: Lisa Marie Presley’s twin daughters, 8, in child protective services after she found ‘hundreds of indecent photos’ of children on their dad’s computer, according to shocking court papers

  • Lisa Marie’s daughters Finley and Harper Lockwood are in the care of California’s Department of Children and Family Services, court documents state
  • Presley, 49, claims to have found inappropriate pictures and disturbing video footage on her fourth husband Michael Lockwood’s computer
  • The court papers  also state there are pending allegations of sexual abuse and neglect
  • Details are included in court papers filed as part of her divorce from Lockwood
  • Presley claims police found 80 of Lockwood’s devices during a raid on her home
  • She says cops still have the devices and claims they haven’t been fully analyzed
  • Presley and Lockwood married in Japan in 2006 but separated last June
  • Presley – the only daughter of Elvis Presley – claims she has to pay for two nannies to go along as monitors when her husband visits the children 
  • Her $300 million fortune, which she claims is nearly all gone, is the subject of divorce proceedings as Lockwood fights for spousal support

Elvis Presley’s twin granddaughters have been taken from their parents by worried social workers after mom Lisa Marie found a stash of disturbing photos and videos of children on their father’s computer, shocking court papers seen exclusively by DailyMail.com claim.

Eight-year-old girls Finley and Harper Lockwood are now in the care of California‘s Department of Children and Family Services and a trial has been set for March to determine their future, Lisa Marie Presley alleges in the papers.

Presley, 49, who checked herself into rehab last August shortly after she and Lockwood split, alleges she found the pictures and disturbing videos on fourth husband Michael Lockwood’s computer.

‘I was shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach,’ she said in court papers filed as part of her ongoing divorce from Lockwood.

Presley – the only child of Elvis Presley – said in the papers that Beverly Hills Police Department found 80 of Lockwood’s devices during a raid on her home. She added the cops still have them and they have not been fully analyzed.

‘My understanding is that Tennessee law enforcement is also conducting an investigation related to the photos and videos that I discovered,’ she said, according to the documents.

‘I have no idea what else may be on those devices and fear that there are more and worse images and evidence in these un-analyzed devices.

The documents also reveal pending allegations of sexual abuse and neglect on the part of Lockwood.

The papers state, ‘While the Respondent [Lockwood] has not yet been convicted of crimes related to his possession of these photos, that he possessed them is documented evidence of conduct that has destoyed the mental or emotional calm of Petitioner, and, as in Schu, is domestic violence “by an reasonable definition of the term.”‘

Presley and Lockwood, 55, a musician who has worked with Fiona Apple and Aimee Mann among others, were married in a lavish $340,000 ceremony in Kyoto, Japan in 2006. Her first husband, Danny Keough was best man. They separated last June.

Presley, who claims nearly all of her $300 million fortune is gone, said in the papers that she has to pay for two nannies to go along as monitors when her husband visits the children.




John Coatman MBE – Crusaders/ Urban Saints Youth Group Leader charged with buggery of a 14-yr old.


Croydon headmaster John Coatman spared jail for abusing teenage boy

Jan 12 2018

A former headmaster, honoured for his services to young people, has been spared jail after admitting sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.

In August 2016 retired John Coatman, 76, was found guilty of gross indecency for an offence committed in the 1970s.

His conviction had been thrown out by the Court of Appeal last April because of an error on his charge sheet.

When the case returned to the Old Bailey for a retrial he pleaded guilty to a charge of indecent assault.

‘Rough and tumble’

Coatman, of Leyburn Gardens, Croydon, south London, was sentenced by Judge Anne Molyneux to 21 months imprisonment, suspended for two years.

He was also made subject to a 12-month supervision order.

The court heard that the teenager would visit Coatman’s home, where they would engage in “rough and tumble”, which later took a sexual turn as the adult touched the boy over his clothes.

Matters escalated when, on three separate occasions, the pair undressed in Coatman’s bedroom and the head teacher touched the boy sexually.

‘Difficult to comprehend’

The defendant was headteacher of St Andrew’s secondary school in Croydon, but the complainant was not a pupil there.

Coatman retired in 1998 after 42 years as a teacher and was awarded an MBE in 2012.

Prosecutor Mark Trafford QC told the Old Bailey: “The defendant’s MBE for services to young people was something that he (the complainant) found difficult to comprehend under the circumstances.”

Claims against Coatman, who has inoperable cancer, surfaced in 2014.

In a victim impact statement, the complainant said the incidents had left him with emotional and relationship difficulties.

Sentencing, Ms Molyneux said: “You were in a position of considerable trust, and he trusted you. He enjoyed being with you over a short period of time.”


Retired Croydon headteacher admits sexually abusing 14-year-old four decades ago

The retired headteacher of a Croydon school, honoured with an MBE by the Queen in 2012 for services to young people, today admitted to sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy over 40 years ago.

John Coatman of Leyburn Gardens, 76, was found guilty of gross indecency in August 2016 when volunteering at a Christian youth group called The Crusaders in the 1970s.

However, soon after his conviction it emerged that there had been an error in the level of the charges against him by the Crown Prosecution Service and the judge adjourned sentencing as it became obvious the case would go to the Court of Appeal. The Court eventually quashed his conviction in April this year and ordered a re-trial.

At his retrial at the Old Bailey on Monday, Coatman pleaded guilty to an amended charge of indecent assault.

Coatman was headteacher at St Andrew’s Church of England High School in Waddon. During his trial, he told the jury he worked with over 22,000 young people during a 50-year association with the Christian group for boys but “had never had any sort of complaint”. The jury rejected Coatman’s explanations and found him guilty of two counts of gross indecency but not guilty of buggery.

Claims against Coatman emerged in 2014 after the victim was suffering from problems at work and his marriage broke down.

At his trial, he denied the claims that “rough and tumble” had turned sexual, saying the only physical activity the young people engaged in was the children’s game British Bulldog.

Coatman told jurors he was “shocked” and “deeply shaken” after his arrest, saying the theme of sex cropped up in youth group meetings only in reference to religion.


Former Croydon headteacher John Coatman has buggery convictions annulled by High Court judges due to police and Crown Prosecution Service errors.

18 Apr 2017

A retired headmaster who had been found guilty of gross indecency with a 14-year-old boy has had his conviction nulled due to police and Crown Prosecution Service errors.

John Coatman, 76, a former headteacher at St Andrew’s Church of England High School in Waddon appealed to the High Court to overturn his conviction for historic sexual abuse at the Old Bailey in August.

Senior judges this month overturned the jury’s verdicts that Mr Coatman, who had also been honoured by the Queen for his services to young people, had sexual activity with the teenager in the 1970s.

Three judges at the Royal Courts of Justice quashed his outstanding convictions on April 6, ruling that Mr Coatman should not have faced the charges under section 1 of the Indecency With Children Act 1960 and section 13 of the Sexual Offences Act 1956.

The Right Honourable Lady Justice Hallett DBE stated: “Both (the police and Crown Prosecution Service) were wrong (to pursue these charges).

“The appellant could not be charged with offences under section 1 because of the age of the complainant at the time and could not be charged with offences under section 13 because they were time barred.”

Mr Coatman could not have committed an offence against a 14-year-old boy in 1973 under Section 1 of the 1960 Act because the law did not relate to alleged victims of that age until 2001, Lady Justice Hallett ruled.

Buggery charges levied against Mr Coatman under Section 13 of the 1956 Act – provided at the time under the heading ‘Indecency with Men’ – were ‘inapt’, the judge ruled, because the alleged conduct amounted to an assault towards a victim, rather than a sexual act with another man.

Lady Justice Hallett added: “Over the last few years this court has issued repeated warnings about the dangers of poor drafting of indictments in cases of alleged ‘historic sexual abuse’.”

A Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) spokesperson said: “We have contacted the complainant in this case to explain the issue and apologised.

“The CPS has issued advice to our specialist sexual offences prosecutors about the appropriate offences to charge in these particular circumstances, to reflect the changes in the law and recent Court of Appeal judgements.

“Cases currently before the courts have also been re-checked to ensure the error does not happen again.”


The judges said the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) was “responsible for this deeply regrettable state of affairs” and added a new case could potentially be brought against Mr Coatman alleging different charges.

Mr Coatman was made an MBE in 2012 for services to young people. During his trial he told the court he had worked with about 22,000 young people in his lifetime,


Ex-head teacher John Coatman appeals conviction after being found guilty of gross indecency

A jury at the Old Bailey in August found John Coatman, 75, guilty of gross indecency with a boy in the early 1970s

Coatman, of Leyburn Gardens, was due to be sentenced at the Old Bailey today, but applied to the Court of Appeal to overturn his conviction. He did not appear in court himself.

The hearing was indefinitely adjourned by Judge Richard Hone, who previously warned Coatman, who taught for 42 years, to expect a jail term.

Update: August 26, 2016

John Coatman MBE – Crusaders/ Urban Saints Youth Group Leader found guilty of gross indecency with young boy

John Coatman, leader of Urban Saints Youth Group, Croydon was warned by Judge Richard Hone QC that he faced a jail term. He is due to be sentenced on September 30.

Sexual contact took place on about four or five occasions.

In emotional testimony in front of the jury, the man – who was 14 at the time at the time – broke down in tears as he described the alleged abuse taking place 

“… the effects of abuse on a young person can be quite traumatic…”

The survivor also said Coatman had asked whether any other boys he knew “might be interested”.




A retired headmaster, John Coatman, has been charged with having sex with a 14-year-old boy he met through a Christian youth group in the 1970s.

Jurors heard that at the time of the incidents, Coatman was not only the headteacher of a secondary school in south London (St Andrew’s Church of England High School), but was also involved in a Christian group for boys.  

The name of the Christian youth group is – Crusaders/now called  Urban Saints Youth Group organisation – Cliff Richard’s group



Mr Coatman, who described himself as a bachelor told jurors that the topic of sex did crop up during youth group meetings, but only in reference to passages in the Bible involving “Christian aspects of sexual behaviour”, he added.

From mass groups of us walking over box hill in the middle of the night every year to may trips away to Westbrook on the isle of white.

John Coatman reckons he’s been to about 300 Crusaders camps over the years





Westbrook started life as a large Victorian residence surrounded by 25 acres of mixed parkland that was purchased by Crusaders Union in 1948

The original intention of the Committee at the time was to use a Memorial Fund of just over £500 to purchase a field as a permanent camp site for the ever developing Crusader holidays

1979 Margaret Thatcher immediately carried out her promise to slash public spending, recommending that heating be drastically rationed in offices and schools.

This led to a remarkable revolt in Westerham in October 1979 when rebel children from Churchill School, led by senior pupils, burned their text books and walked out in protest against the cold. When headmaster John Coatman went into the playing field to remonstrate, many returned. Around 50 to 60 protesters stayed outside until a caretaker confirmed that the boilers were on.

WHAT IS AN URBAN SAINTS GROUP ANYWAY? There was a bumper crop of Urban Saints family members included in the 2012 New Year’s Honours list by Her Majesty The Queen.

This included MBEs for John Coatman (for his work with young people in Croydon, including the Wallington Urban Saints group), Dr Avice Hall & Stephen Hammersley (for their work in education, the community and their own local groups, in St Albans and Harpenden respectively). Former Crusaders Director, Dr Alan Kerbey, received an OBE for his work with young people in education and another former staff team member, Colin Henry, was recognised for with a MBE, for services to education in his role as Chair of Governors at Christ’s College in Guildford.

Crusaders, the youth missionary movement, hosted “An Evening with Sir Cliff Richard” recently in Central London to celebrate its centenary.

Alongside Steve Chalke, the President of Crusaders, Sir Cliff shared his personal life and faith, as well as performing a couple of songs from his repertoire.

Sir Cliff shared openly about his early days as a young performer, his big break, his very public conversion to Christ and the significant role played by Crusader leaders in his early Christian journey.

He spoke fondly of his time with Crusaders.

Sir Cliff is Patron of the Crusaders



Paul O’Grady: “He’s really been through it this year, poor Cliff. He’s had a terrible time.”

Cliff Richard to O’Grady: “…you and I we’ve stood side by side through the storms together and all through the years you have been golden”


Cliff Richard’s drag queen friend and supporter, Paul O’Grady worked at care homes where Jimmy Savile abused and where Crusaders (members of the organisation that Cliff Richard is patron of)  were charged with abuse.


Paul O’Grady as drag queen, Lily Savage (Carlton Television) worked for Camden Council Social Services

Cilla Black used to go on holiday with Lily Savage aka Paul O’Grady, who worked as a social worker in Lambeth at the time of the paedophile gang and neglect of clients in that Borough. Diane Abbott was Lambeth Borough Council’s press officer/PR person.




O’Grady worked at The Children’s Convalescent Home and School on Meols Drive, West Kirby Meols Drive, West Kirby



From his autobiography:

o grady children's home


Last night TV funnyman Paul O’Grady told how Savile was banned from being alone on a girls’ ward at a care home where the Lily Savage star once worked.

Paul says: “When I worked in a children’s home in West Kirby in the 1970s, Jimmy Savile came to visit.

O’Grady, recalled the “creepy” DJ, Jimmy Savile visiting the Conny Home in West Kirby, Merseyside, which housed disabled and abused children in the 1970s.

He said: “Some of the house mothers were told not to let him on the girls’
unit unsupervised.”

West Kirby Residential School, West Kirby, Wirral

A group of 10 claimants has already issued legal proceedings relating to claims for severe physical and sexual abuse from the mid 1970s to the early 1990s at West Kirby Residential School in Meols Drive.

Three men (Graham Charles Webb, Henry Christie, Matthew Johnson) received jail sentences at Liverpool Crown Court for their part in the physical and sexual abuse at the residential school.

*Former head of care Graham Charles Webb, was jailed for seven years in July 1997 for abusing boys at the school and at camps he helped organise.

Webb, who also worked for a well known Christian youth movement, admitted abusing 20 children over a period of almost 20 years.


(West Kirby Residential School, West Kirby, Wirral

Matthew Johnson was also at Balliol School, Sedburgh, Cumbria.

The former house parent, of Kirby Stephen, Cumbria, committed the offences on five pupils at the residential school and three boy scouts who were in his care when he was a scout master.)



And another Crusader leader charged with abusing boys:

Crusader leader vicar Rev David Henry McIntosh:


Crusader Graham Webb charged along with

fellow Crusader leader vicar Rev David Henry McIntosh:

Alongside McIntosh in the dock was 41-year-old Graham Webb, who was care head at a West Kirby residential school, and Bournemouth man Robert Moses.

Some of the charges involve both McIntosh and Webb, who were leaders of activity holidays.

FORMER West Kirby residential school head Graham Webb and a vicar face indecency charges.

23 May 1997

Rev David Henry McIntosh, of Fenwick Lane, Runcorn, has been bailed with sureties of £2,000. A condition of bail is to make no contact with Webb. They will appear at Crown Court to plea on June 12, after being directed to the higher court by Wirral magistrates.


 26 Mar 1997

The Rev McIntosh had been staying at an address in Fenwick Lane, Halton Lodge, Runcorn, but has now been moved to a secret venue which was not revealed in open court.

Reporting restrictions have not been lifted.


A Church of England VICAR, the Rev David Henry McIntosh,

who sexually assaulted young boys during naked “shower games” at holiday camps organised by a Christian youth group has been jailed for three years at Liverpool Crown Court.

The court was told that the “shower games” took place during Crusader holidays at a boarding school in Swindon, Wiltshire, in 1988,1994 and 1995 and at a weekend gathering of boys for a reunion at a church commissioner’s house in Llandudno in 1994.

His position was made more serious by the fact he had helped draw up documents advising leaders about appropriate behaviour with the boys.

The Church of England vicar, who resigned from his post at Barnton, near Northwich, after his arrest last December, used to work as part of a ministry team in Ellesmere Port

He studied maths and physics at Durham University.

He is charged with 19 indecent assault allegations at West Kirby, Swindon, Minehead, Malvern and Cheltenham, four matters of gross indecency at West Kirby and two other offences brought under the Sexual Offences Act.

He had been involved with the Crusaders for longer than his involvement in the church, attending more than 40 holidays during that period of time.



 December 1997


 A VICAR who sexually assaulted young boys during naked “shower games” at holiday camps organised by a Christian youth group has been jailed for three years at Liverpool Crown Court.

McIntosh, who was camp chaplain at the holidays at Pinewood boarding school, Swindon, from 1988 to 1991, became overall holiday leader there in 1993.

The two boys whom McIntosh abused in Llandudno were both from an Ellesmere Port school where he was vicar.




 Another Crusader charged with abusing boys at a care home:


Mr Gilbart-Smith… who had led the Crusaders children’s group for fifty years was accused of abuse

All the allegations were said to have involved Mr Gilbart-Smith and others at Greenfield House children’s hostel in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

During that time the court heard residents were subjected to sustained, systemic abuse at the hands of the home’s managers and numerous visitors.

The youngsters were repeatedly raped and even ‘loaned out’ to other paedophiles elsewhere.

Mr Gilbart-Smith, a successful businessman, was accused of being one of those who took part in the sex attacks.


Nine men “horrendously abused” by a paedophile ring in a children’s home 40 years ago have received an out-of-court settlement totalling more than £300,000

The civil settlement came despite the fact that no-one has ever been convicted of criminal offences regarding the abuse at the council-run Green Field House in Maidenhead, Berkshire, between 1964 and 1970

The home was then managed by ex-soldier Don Prescott, who died about 19 years ago.

He used to abuse the boys and rent them out to other paedophiles as far afield as Leicester, London, Cambridge and Reading


“Unfortunately for the boys staying at Green Field House, it was the centre of a paedophile ring numbering so many men some of the boys lost count of those who abused them.

“They suffered the most horrendous abuse – it was the worst type of sexual abuse. They were filmed, photographed and had to take part in the abuse.

“… it went on for six years.”


Nine men all with children and grandchildren claimed to have been raped by Gilbart-Smith the Lloyds investor during their stay at Green Field House children’s home Maidenhead (Theresa May’s constituency).

Gilbart-Smith, offered no defence other than a denial and a moral smoke screen, as he claimed to be a “Christian” who was a church leader at Foxes Piece School, Newfield Road, Marlow. Gilbart-Smith also told the court that he was a Bible teaching missionary and friends with a David Pawson.

Theresa May’s reply about Oliver Denham Gilbart-Smith & Green Field House child abuse scandal


Image result for Oliver Denham Gilbart-Smith

NOTE: Theresa May doesn’t respond to the question that was asked about the secret RBWM paedophile deal, but rather in typical politician fashion, she evades the question with statements like;

“we discussed your concerns”

“I appreciate your concerns” 

“I have raised this matter” 

“I noted the contents”

“In addition I have also raised this” 

“I hope this will be of use”

Theresa May was specifically asked whether the secret £300,000 RBWM payment was moral, legal or in the public interest? For whatever reason the now Prime Minister has refused to look into this matter.

Myself and numerous other victims and or their MPs including; Norman Baker MP, Mike Thornton MP, Nick de Bois, MP, John Redwood MP, Mims Davies MP have all written to Theresa May as MP then Home Secretary and now Prime Minister asking the same question and Theresa May has consistently refused to answer this very simple question.

The Prime Minister & The Nobbler

In 1970 the council in Theresa Mays Maidenhead constituency, brushed the horrific Green Field House child abuse scandal under the carpet, hoping  it would never again see the light of day.

The child abuse surfaced again some thirty years later in 2000. Maidenhead police investigated but there was insufficient evidence to proceed with a criminal case, so a civil case was pursued by two complainants.

For the following five years *RBWM, denied the abuse ever took place. However, on the 29th November 2006 RBWM were forced to accept responsibility, and they agreed to settle a £300,000 compensation claim with nine rape victims, plus the considerable legal costs incurred from a five year investigation by solicitors Dyer Burdett.

*When we reference RBWM we are referring to the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead or Berkshire County Council (BBC) whose responsibilities RBWM inherited and or their insurers.



RBWM by settling the claims and paying £300,000 in compensation, agreed with the claimants and the Dyer-Burdett legal team that the unnamed man mentioned in the BBC website article, was a paedophile and had raped and abused 4 of the 9 claimants.

To recover their loss, RWBM immediately sued the unnamed man, who promptly paid RBWM £300,000 to cover their loss.

On top of the £300,000 the unnamed man also paid RBWM’s legal bill, including the costs relating to Dyer Burdett’s five year investigation. However, before committing to settle this payment, the unnamed man insisted on the following caveats:

  • RBWM would keep his name secret.
  • RBWM would keep the amount of cash he paid them a secret.
  • RBWM would exclude him from any future claims if they paid compensation to any more of his rape victims. 

With total disregard for the spirit of the law and public funds, RBWM amazingly agreed to the caveats and struck a deal with the now self confessed paedophile. This secret paedophile deal included a substantial payment to exclude the unnamed man from any future claims, if RBWM compensated any more of his rape victims.


The amount the unnamed man paid was over £1,000,000!


April 12th 2007, the unnamed man sold his family home of twenty five years, Winterberry Jobs Lane, Cookham, SL6 9TX, for £1,475,000,00.


Winterberry Jobs Lane Cookham

Around the same time the unnamed man sold Ballyhaise Quarry Road, Marlow, SL7 1RE for £1,251,423,00. Ballyhaise had been a family home for about 35 years.



By 2010 RBWM had settled 21 individual compensation claims for abuse that had taken place at the Green Field House children’s home. RBWM settled more than 10 compensation claims for rape by the unnamed man. None of the later claimants were made aware that their compensation claim was being paid with money RBWM had received from the rapist in a secret deal. 

After three years of writing to Theresa May concerning the corrupt RBWM paedophile hush payment with ZERO response, the below letter & the book Rich Man Poor Man was sent to 100’s of MP’s.


Out of the 300 MPs the letter and book was sent to, one Scottish MP Brian Donohoe responded with a phone call.  Mr Donohoe suggested that I approach Theresa May through my local MP which at that time was Mike Thornton, I acted on Mr Donohoe’s simple advice.

In the below email to Mike Thornton MP, RBWM break their secret agreement and name (Denham) Gilbart-Smith as the unnamed man that paid the RBWM rape bill. 


2010 17th May

After a 2 year police investigation, Gilbart-Smith stood trial for 17 charges of raping and abusing 8 kids as young as nine. The secret RBWM deal was not allowed to be mentioned during the trial.


  •  Gilbart-Smith agreed with the prosecution that all of his friends that went to the children’s home were paedophiles.
  • Gilbart-Smith agreed to being an unpaid helper at the kids home and going on holidays with the children and the paedophiles.
  • Gilbart-Smith agreed to being at the numerous places where the children were raped sold and abused by paedophiles.
  • Gilbart-Smith’s only defence during the six week trial was, he didn’t know that his friends were paedophiles, he had no idea that the boys were being raped by his friends, and he personally did not rape or abuse any of the boys.
  • Nine men who for the best part hadn’t seen each other for 40 years all claimed to have been raped or abused by Gilbart-Smith.
    (One of the 9 made a complaint too late for charges to be made)
  • The purpose of a jury is to return a verdict based on the evidence presented to the court, this jury returned a verdict in total contradiction to the overwhelming and robust evidence. All the jury had to decide in what for all intense and purposes was a ‘cut and dried’ case was: “Who is telling the truth, the nine men who hadn’t seen each other for 40 years or Gilbart-Smith?”

Watch the video and cringe at Gilbart-Smith’s pathetic lies, a jury of ten year old kids would have seen through Gilbart-Smith’s nonsense and found him guilty. In The Nobbler it is very clearly outlined how Gilbart-Smith, with no defence WHATSOEVER would once again outsmart the system with his wealth. If Gilbart-Smith had access to one million or fifty million pounds, all of it would be worthless to him in jail. No more Michelin Star restaurants for Greasy-Gilbart just porridge.

With the prospect of disgracing the family name and spending the rest of his life on the monster wing with child murderers, paedophiles, rapists and every other vile creature under the sun. True to his modus operandi, Gilbart-Smith paid out a large sum of *cash to nobble the jury.

*This would be very easy to establish as fact, seven years on a simple financial investigation on the jury members starting with the foreman would prove very interesting.

In 2010 Gilbart-Smith ran *IMS an insurance company that insured policy holders against kidnapping, international terrorism and such like. So Gilbart-Smith was no stranger to spooks and double dealing in the murky world of international intelligence, espionage, and subterfuge. Gilbart-Smith would communicate with spy academy type characters on a daily basis in his work environment.

*Gilbart-Smith is no longer connected with IMS.


The author of The Nobbler John Affleck was sent to prison for 12 months for contempt of the court for protesting against the corrupt verdict. Gilbart-Smith left court a free man with the tax payer paying his massive legal bill. Had the jury found Gilbart-Smith guilty, he would have had to pay his own legal fees, so if the content of The Nobbler book is truthful, Gilbart-Smith in effect paid for his jury nobbling activities with tax payers money.

Instead of suing John for slander and false accusations including tampering with the jury and the murder of three blackmailers, immediately after the trial at the age of 64 The Nobbler swiftly cashed in his assets and left the UK, leaving behind his children and grandchildren, he became a citizen of Northern Cyprus, a Muslim country that has no extradition treaty with the UK.


After John was released from prison Maidenhead MP Theresa May refused to answer any of Johns correspondence for the following three years concerning this matter. However, Mrs May did write to another of Gilbart-Smiths rape victims who lives in her constituency.


NOTE: Theresa May doesn’t respond to the question that was asked about the secret RBWM paedophile deal, but rather in typical politician fashion, she evades the question with statements like;

“we discussed your concerns”

“I appreciate your concerns” 

“I have raised this matter” 

“I noted the contents”

“In addition I have also raised this” 

“I hope this will be of use”

Theresa May was specifically asked whether the secret £300,000 RBWM payment was moral, legal or in the public interest? For whatever reason the now Prime Minister has refused to look into this matter.

Myself and numerous other victims and or their MPs including; Norman Baker MP, Mike Thornton MP, Nick de Bois, MP, John Redwood MP, Mims Davies MP have all written to Theresa May as MP then Home Secretary and now Prime Minister asking the same question and Theresa May has consistently refused to answer this very simple question.


Prime Minister, instead of giving up salt & vinegar crisps for lent 2017, do you think it might be more appropriate for a person in your position to GIVE UP not answering a straight forward  simple question concerning the £300,000 rapist payment to the authority in your constituency?


On the 8th September John received a reply from Sarah Newton the minister for vulnerability at the Home Office. Incredibly Ms Newton advised John to complain to RBWM about the million pound plus payment that RBWM had received from  Denham Gilbart-Smith after RBWM accused Gilbart-Smith of raping around ten children in their care.


Dear Mrs Newton, Should I also complain to Mr Gilbart-Smith for raping me when I was a ten year old kid?

You really couldn’t make this stuff up, it’s taken five years to get that advice from the Home Office.

This Video May Prove Cliff Richard Is A Child Abuser

 “Richard faced accusations from four men, relating to the period between 1958 and 1983, but was never arrested or charged. The case was dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service in June, after it decided there was insufficient evidence to bring an action.”

I believe in the Devil, I spend more time with him than I do with God,” Would a devout Christian admit to that? I don’t think so.



Why does Kitty always refer to just one accuser (he) when he knows there were several?


it was 9 accusers…9!!! The file to CPS wasn’t blank! Good wholesome Christian who hangs about with shady characters

Predator Savile’s attack on victim at High Royds Psychiatric Hospital in Menston

High Royds Hospital is a former psychiatric hospital south of the village of Menston, West Yorkshire, England. The hospital, which opened in 1888, closed in 2003 and the site has since been developed for residential use.

The hospital is located within in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough and was first opened on 8 October 1888 as the West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum.

It is near Ilkley.

In 1988, Jimmy Savile assaulted a patient at the hospital’s 100 anniversary celebrations.[1]

It was in 1988 that Savile was a guest at a garden party to celebrate High Royds’ 100th anniversary, said local historian Mark Davis.

Geoffrey Bettley was allowed to keep working as a teacher even after he was convicted of possessing indecent images of children

Bettley was working at St Mary’s Catholic High School in Menston, West Yorkshire, when he was arrested for downloading nearly 200 images.

He was cautioned and placed on a ‘barred list’ by the Independent Safeguarding Authority, although his name was taken off last June.

His case was heard by the National College for Teaching and Leadership professional conduct panel, which concluded that he was not a risk to children and the DfE backed the decision.

Peter Saunders, of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood, said he had ‘zero’ confidence in the Government’s ability to tackle child-related offences.

Everyone is aghast at the failure to grasp the common sense that everything must be done to ensure that these people can never go near classrooms again,’ he said.

Bettley, who joined St Mary’s in September 2001 from Yorkshire Martyrs Catholic School, in Bradford, West Yorks, was suspended from his job on December 9, 2010, and dismissed a year later.

In October 2011 the Independent Safeguarding Authority banned him from working with children, but removed the restriction on 21 June 2012

Mr Bettley, does not, in the view of the Panel, represent a risk to children and young people.

Kincora: ‘Highest profile people connected to abuse’ claim

 Peter Brooke stonewalled.

The Kincora Boys’ Home in east Belfast was at the centre of a child abuse scandal in the 1980s


Kincora controversy

In February 1990, Brooke told Kevin McNamara, Labour’s then Northern Ireland spokesman, that the Kincora affair had been investigated ‘as fully and thoroughly as lies within the power of the Government to investigate it, and that no purpose would now be served by a further inquiry’

In October 1990, Brooke conceded for the first time, that the reports about the Kincora home came to the attention of the police.


Peter Brooke was sworn of the Privy Council in 1988. He was made Chairman of the Conservative Party in 1987, and then Secretary of State for Northern Ireland in 1989.

During his time as Heritage Secretary, he oversaw the restoration of Windsor Castle following the fire that had struck the state apartments in 1992.

Jimmy Savile:  Two separate attacks in High Royds Hospital at Menston, near Ilkley, which treated psychiatric patients, in the 1970s and 1980s.


Paul O’Grady appointed MBE by Prince Charles – The star said: “I’m delighted. Now I’m part of the Establishment.”

Prince Charles – friend of  “creepy” Jimmy Savile:



Paul O’Grady:

Even now, 40 years on, the TV host and comedian shivers as he relives the night he saved the 18-month-old youngster’s life while working for social services. (Camden Council Social Services)

He tells how he fled the flat where he was keeping watch on the baby after a terrifying confrontation with the little lad’s drunken father – and how the drama ended with him making a desperate phone call to the Salvation Army for help.

Paul O’Grady reveals the terrifying moment in 1976 … he feared for his own survival

 Paul O'Grady: The Sally Army and Me

Paul O’Grady, while employed by Camden Council Social Services 

 took a toddler to a pub where Adam Ant was playing

Reliving his unforgettable ordeal in 1976, Paul says: “It was a dangerous situation for the kid, and for me.

“There were a few times when my life and that of The Sally Army crossed paths, but that night is one of the most memorable.”

After heading to London in the 70s, a few years before conjuring up Lily Savage , Liverpudlian Paul, then 21, worked for Camden Council Social Services providing respite care for families at home.

He says: “I remember the mother of this child had to go to hospital for an operation so I was there to look after him. He was only 18 months.

“It must have been about 2am when there was a banging at the door. I answered it …‘What are you doing carrying on with my wife?” he said.

“I tried to explain I was a care worker, but he just told me, ‘I want my kid.’

“‘You’re not getting your kid, mate,’ I said. ‘I’m sorry, you’ve got to get through me first.’

So I took the child in the middle of the night…I hurried into this club next to Camden Town tube. I remember Adam And The Ants* were playing a gig there that night.”

“I asked the manager if I could use his phone to call my duty worker. But I couldn’t get through to him for some reason. So I called The Sally Army instead and said, ‘can you bloody help me?’

“And they came. And they didn’t ask lots of questions. They wrapped the kid in a blanket. We had a place of safety in Kentish Town and they took him there.


Adam Ant’s father, Alfred Leslie Goddard (left), was jailed for preying on runaway boys nearly 30 years ago.

 Leslie Alfred Goddard  worked as a chauffeur.


*Stuart Leslie Goddard/Adam Ant’s father- Leslie Alfred Goddard- was jailed in 1987 with Sidney Cooke as part of the Dirty Dozen gang.


Boys had been hawked around “safe houses” and passed on to other members of the gang which included council porter Alfred Goddard, father of 1980s pop star Adam Ant.

The former council porter was a member of a gang that included Britain’s most notorious paedophile, Sidney Cooke, who was later convicted of the sadistic gang rape and killing of a teenage boy and is suspected of murdering many more.

It has emerged that detectives investigating shock allegations of three murders and systemic child sex abuse by senior Establishment figures are looking into Goddard’s possible involvement.

The suggestion is that the child sex ring, dubbed the Dirty Dozen and known to have targeted vulnerable youngsters, could have passed on their victims for the MPs to abuse.

Image result for dolphin Square, Pimlico

At the time, Goddard lived in Eccleston Square, Pimlico, close to the exclusive apartments of Dolphin Square where the VIP child abuse ring is said to have been based.

29th Jan 1999 Sidney Cooke appears before Newbury Magistrates Court, charged with 14 serious sexual offences. which were said to have taken place in Battersea and Stockwell in south London; Twyford, Berks; Canterbury, Kent; Washington, Tyne and Wear and Hatfield, Berkhamsted and Tring in Herts.



Adam Ant’s mother was an embroiderer or the Queen’s dressmaker Norman Hartnell. and worked at Paul McCartney’s house as a cleaner.

Like Sidney Cooke, Leslie Alfred Goddard was also a chauffeur to rich families.

Alfred Leslie Goddard had served in the Royal Air Force.

Cliff Richard’s friend Paul O’Grady is a patron of  the Peter Tatchell Foundation




Is this the current CHE membership leaflet with photo of Nettie Pollard & Peter Tatchell from 2011?

“Pollard gave a constant stream of support to paedophiles and promoted their views.”

Photo below: Nettie Pollard (EC Member) with Peter Tatchell at the 2011 Annual Conference:

Nettie Pollard was member number 70 of the Paedophile Information Exchange.





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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Image result for harriet harman pie

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Harriet Harman and Peter Tatchell



Peter Tatchell was a leading member of the Gay Liberation Front (GLF) but never knew or met any GLF members that where paedophiles like John David Stamford ?

Harriet Harman, PIE , etc …..

Is Peter Tatchell A Paedophile Or Simply Misunderstood?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Peter Tatchell’s self-defence begins with:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Look at his defence of the book Dares To Speak:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

P.I.E – Paedophile Information Exchange

Members/Activists/Connected of P.I.E
Former PIE Chairperson and current pro-paedophile activist Tom O’Carroll

David Joy, 66 – once No2 in the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange. In 1984 he was jailed for 18 months for publishing obscene material in a PIE newsletter. In 1996 he got two more years after admitting indecent assaults dating back to the 80s. Then in January 2006 cops found 1,129 images of children aged one to 13 at his rundown flat in Loughborough, Leics. Some were in the level 5 category – featuring sado-masochism, torture or bestiality.

DR Morris Fraser – P.I.E founder member & leading child psychiatrist – had a criminal record for taking indecent photographs of children and assault in 1972. Good friends with both Napier, Waters and Righton

Terrence Waters – Former prep school teacher – Closely linked to several P.I.E members incl Andrew Sadler – adopted the alias “James Opphin daler”. The name contains an anagram of the word “paedophile”. In 1994 Waters was sentenced to ten years for possessing child abuse images and the sexual abuse of a 10 year old boy. In 2011 convicted for more sexual abuse against children at Allen House School – More on Waters on this link
Michael Johnson – jailed for four years on six specimen counts of indecent assault against two boys aged nine and 11. In 1988 Dr Morris Fraser and Michael Johnson set up a sailing charity for disadvantaged boys called the Azimuth Trust based in Cornwall.

The phone would be picked up by Steven Smith, a paedophile and member of the group who worked in security in Whitehall, from where he would tell callers where to go for the next meeting to discuss issues including decriminalising sex with children as young as four.

John Stamford – A former church minister published international guides for child molesters. He died before his trial. Stamford used a homosexual travel guide called spartacus as a front for a mailing ordering service offering information on child prostitutes in Thailand, Brazil and other nations. The organisation was alleged to have operated through a box number in London. The details of each of the members, including their sexual preferences, the desired age of the children and preferred countries of origin were stored on a computer. The members received personalised lists of children.

P.I.E members jailed in 1978

April 1978

‘Sinister Group Passed Boys Round The System’

A CHILD-SEX campaign was branded by an Old Bailey judge as a ‘sinister group’.

‘The Paedophile Information Exchange must cause deep anxiety to people who care about the welfare of children,’ said Judge Brian Gibbons.

His criticism came when he jailed four of the nine men who admitted homosexual acts with young boys and indecent assault. The others were given suspended sentences and fined.

Two of the men had met through the Exchange and a network of communication had been developed among the nine who ‘passed boys round the system.’

One of the men, 26-year-old Robert Bushell, of Golders Green was described by the judge as the worst offender.

He had committed some of the offences in the dormitory of a Surrey boarding school.

Judge Gibbons told him ‘You corrupted the uncorrupted at an early age. I consider you a grave danger to children.’

Judge Gibbons also jailed Geoffrey Taylor, aged 65, for four years for indecent assault; David Hooper, aged 35, four years for buggery; and Nigel Beatman, aged 32, jailed for 30 months for indecent assault.


Michael Hanson – First chairman (set up P.I.E. as a special interest group within the Scottish Minorities Group with Ian Dunn)
Keith Hose – 2ND Chairman In the PIE Chairperson’s Annual Report for 1975-6, Keith Hose wrote that ‘The only way for PIE to survive, was to seek out as much publicity for the organization as possible…. If we got bad publicity we would not run into a corner but stand and fight. We felt that the only way to get more paedophiles joining P I E… was to seek out and try to get all kinds of publications to print our organization’s name and address and to make pedophilia a real public issue.’
British antiques expert Keith Harding was active in the Paedophile Information Exchange
Harding was convicted of indecent assault against four children aged eight and nine in the late 1950s and 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.

A document held by police in the mid-1980s listed Keith Harding as PIE member number 329 next to his north London address.
Ian Campbell Dunn – Co-founder (born 01/05/43 died 10/03/98)

Shortly before his death, Dunn, a prominent gay activist, became convener of lobby group Outright Scotland. In 1997, he condemned police over a camera surveillance operation in public toilets in Stirling which led to several gay men being charged – even though the investigation also revealed that some men had sex with a 13-year-old boy. In 1974, Dunn co -founded the Paedophile Information Exchange ( PIE) with Michael Hanson. It became the leading contact group for adults campaigning for the right to have sex with children. In an interview in 1997, Dunn admitted he and Hanson had agreed to facilitate research into sex with children.
Dunn was caught on tape bragging abut interfering with a fourteen-year-old boy. The existence of the tape caused him to abandon a libel action he had brought against a Sunday newspaper, which named him as a paedophile. The encounter itself does not seem to have been a one-off – at his funeral in 1998, a young man claimed Dunn had raped him when he was fifteen. Dunn also supported a paedophile magazine called ‘Minor Problems.’
Charles Napier One-time treasurer of PIE Charles Napier is alleged to have sexually assaulted boys whilst a gym master at Copthorne School. He became an English Language Trainer at the British Council and was convicted of sexual assault against minors in London in 1995 and investigated as an alleged member of a paedophile network operating in British schools in 1996. He set up his own school in Turkey and resumed English Language Training with the British Council after serving his sentence

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


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

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

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

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


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

Were paedophiles used as informants on anti-nuclear protestors?

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

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

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

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

The Guardian London, Greater London, England Wednesday,  September 2, 1987 – 36

November 29th 2006 Maidenhead council paid out £300,000 + five years legal costs to nine men who were raped as children whilst in the care of the council at the Greenfield House care home Maidenhead  Berkshire. The council immediately sued one of the men they had paid compensation claims on behalf of, for raping children in their care.

This man immediately settled out of court with a payment in excess of £1,000,000.00. Amazingly the council agreed to a gagging order, so the name of the man and the amount the man had paid the council would remain a secret. Furthermore in this corrupt deal, if the council paid out more compensation claims to anymore of this mans rape victims, the council would not pursue the unnamed man for any further financial contributions.

Due to the councils corrupt immoral dealing with this matter, this secret paedophile deal, would now forever pervert any future criminal investigation and prosecution, involving the unnamed rapist. By 2010 Maidenhead council had compensated 21 abuse victims 12 of the 21 had been compensated for being raped by the unnamed man.

In 2013 under the freedom of information act, I received the following information from David Davies representing Maidenhead Council. The total amount the council paid out was £569,750 compensation and £732,500 legal costs. (to view this document just scroll down) If the council received a payment of more than £1,302,250.00 from the unnamed man, which I very strongly suspect they did, the council have actually profited from the children in their care being raped, and abused by this unnamed man in the gagging order.

In February 2014 Christabel Shawcroft the MD of Maidenhead council in an email to Mike Thornton MP, incredibly broke the gagging order and named the unnamed man as Mr Gilbart-Smith. (to view this document just scroll down)

In May 2014 Theresa May Home Secretary addressed parliament regarding the governments position on paedophiles.

Since Mrs Mays 2014 speech, I have written to Mrs May the Maidenhead MP on numerous occasions, concerning this corrupt paedophile payment with the council in her constituency, and I have never received a reply from the Maidenhead MP.

Another of Gilbart-Smiths rape victims visited Mrs May’s Maidenhead surgery concerning this matter, and the matter was totally ignored as can be seen in Mrs May letter (to view this letter just scroll down) The MP’s of five of Gilbart-Smiths rape victims namely; Mike Thornton, Mimms Davies, Norman Baker, Nick de Bois, and John Redwood have also written to Mrs May as the Home secretary concerning this secret paedophile hush payment. However, none of the MP’s received a reply either.

The only reply I have had was from Sarah Newton at the Home Office when Mrs May became PM. Unbelievably Miss Newton advised me to complain to Maidenhead Council about the paedophile payment. (to view this letter just scroll down)

In light of Mrs Mays 2004 speech I now am seeking help from a professional to ask these three questions and get three answers from Mrs May;

Mrs May,

  1. “Is it proper for the council in your constituency to enter into a SECRET million pound plus agreement, and also agree a gagging order, with Denham Gilbart-Smith, the same man the council were suing, for raping numerous children in their care?”
  2. “Did Maidenhead council receive from Denham Gilbart-Smith more than the £1,302,250.00 they paid out in compensation and legal costs?”
  3. “If the council did receive more than the £1,302,250.00 from Denham Gilbart-Smith, is it proper for the council to profit from children in their care being raped, especially as the payment was received from the same man they were suing for raping the kids?

Below is an overview of this massive

story of blackmail corruption and three murders!

©2019 John Affleck is legally responsible for all content on this website. 

1964 – 1970 numerous children were raped and abused at Greenfield House children’s home in Ray Park Road Maidenhead Berkshire, by Donald Prescott the warden of the children’s home, and numerous other men invited to the home by Prescott.

1966 Prescott a career paedophile, met 19/20 year old Denham Gilbart-Smith at St Marys Church Maidenhead. Gilbart-Smiths wealthy parents Oliver & Doris Gilbart-Smith had recently introduced Billy Graham an American evangelist to the Uk. It was rumoured that Doris Gilbart-Smith had paid or contributed a large amount of cash for the rent of the Royal Victoria & Albert Hall in London, for some of Mr Graham’s meetings.

1967 Prescott convinced young Gilbart-Smith to register with the council as an “unpaid helper”. Wealthy Gilbart-Smith, was now forever officially connected to this nest of paedophiles within the council’s records.

1967 Tony Knott a Reading photographer photographed Willy Walters (GFH resident) raping *Eddy Allen (GFH resident). Knott also photographed Ted Burkett a paedophile friend of Prescott’s and regular visitor to Greenfield House with different boys. Knott photographed JD with MS, MM with EA, and other Greenfield House kids, being raped and abused by each other, but the identity of the adult abusers were always hidden in the photos.

*Eddy Allen committed suicide age 23.

Tony Knott  66 and boyfriends, Florida Court Bath Road Reading RG1 6NG

1967 In May 1967 Gilbart-Smith got a green MG reg KMO 124B for his 21st  birthday. Gilbart-Smith gave 17 year old Willy Walters his bubble car reg WLH 858. Walters had officially left the children’s home, but under Prescott’s control Walters stayed on and would rape and abuse the younger boys, with Gilbart-Smith and other men.

1967 Prescott groomed Gilbart-Smith with the anonymous photos and Gilbart-Smith was subsequently photographed by Tony Knott. However, in this photo set, Gilbart-Smith was fully identified sexually abusing a young boy RA, the blackmail plot was now on. Police became aware of some indecent photos and in the August of 1967, Tony Knott was arrested.

1968 Tony Knott was sent to prison for eighteen months in March 1968, for taking indecent photos of young boys at his studio 30 Minster Street Reading RG1 2JF, but the blackmail plot and the connection to Greenfield House remained undiscovered.

1970 Prescott left Greenfield House in the December of 1970 when the police began an investigation into the paedophile ring. Burkett a baggage handler at Heathrow for B.O.A.C. fled to Australia to escape the criminal investigation. Prescott confronted Gilbart-Smith senior with the photo’s saying; “If I go down I am taking your son with me!” Gilbart-Smith senior paid Prescott a large amount of cash, part of which Prescott used to bribe DC Carstairs a detective from Bracknell police station who was leading the investigation.

1971 After receiving the cash Detective Carstairs interviewed numerous boys. Carstairs’ tactic to close down the investigation was to completely overpower and intimidate the boys. One such interview with sixteen-year-old MM who had been abused for the previous five years went like this: “Are you telling me he put his cock up your arse? You expect me to believe that?” The detective concluded the interview by stating: “That’s fucking disgusting, nobody will ever believe that! Are you some sort of fucking poofter?” After this series of interviews the police investigation was wound down and eventually closed.

1970 – 1986 by 1986 Gilbart-Smith had been blackmailed for sixteen years by Prescott. When Gilbart-Smith became a Lloyd’s name, knowing the blackmail would never end he ordered a hit on Prescott. (Read the book) Upon Prescott’s demise, Burkett who had previously returned from Australia, visited Walters parents to be told that Willy was in Wandsworth prison. Burkett visited Walters in jail and when Willy was released the pair retrieved a set of the Gilbart-Smith photos from the attic of Burkett’s sisters bungalow in Virginia Waters Surrey, Burkett and Walters together blackmailed Gilbart-Smith.

With the first blackmail payment, Burkett paid cash for a substantial town house property in the King Charles area of Kingston, KT5. Gilbart-Smith put a hit on Burkett (Read the book) after Burketts demise Gilbart-Smith paid off Willy Walters. Walters an ex Greenfield House abuse victim, had played a minor role in the blackmail plot as Burkett’s errand boy.

1986 Around 1986 Walters who was 25/26 still lived in a council flat with his wife and two children. Walters had spent all of his adult life in and out of prison. However, with Gilbart-Smiths help, Walters managed to purchase 16 Clive Road Colliers Wood London (£585,592 current zoopla valuation) Walters also purchased each of his two sisters council properties in Howletts Close Eastbourne, with the government right to buy scheme. Walters also purchased a caravan that he used for family holidays and rental income. Walters also set up a scaffolding business with Gilbart-Smiths help.

1987 & 1989 For the first time in his adult life Gilbart-Smith was free from blackmailers. Then in the 1987 and 1989 stock market crashes, Gilbart-Smith was wiped out as a Lloyds name and set up IMS, Insurance Market Services. IMS insured individuals and organisations against kidnapping, acts of terrorism, industrial espionage and such like.

1990’s Gilbart-Smith was expelled from his position of elder and senior Bible teacher alongside his good friend Alistair Bullen at the River Church Maidenhead, for inappropriate sexual conduct with members of the congregation, including a five year extra marital affair with Julie B. After being disgraced, Gilbart-Smith travelled to to Africa, Portugal and Jamaica with his very close friend Peter Butt, where Gilbart-Smith taught the Bible to disadvantaged people who had problems with their home life.

Peter Butt http://www.SchoolofMinistries.org        Alistair Bullen http://www.RiverChurch.org.uk

2000 Gilbart-Smith was arrested and charged with two rapes but the charges were later dropped due to insufficient evidence. The two complainants JD and MM were advised to seek compensation from the owners of the care home Maidenhead Council, through the civil court. The two men instructed a solicitor named Alan Collins to pursue a civil claim on their behalf.

2006 November 29th Alan Collins reached an out of court settlement with Maidenhead Council and or the councils insurers for £300,000 compensation (plus five years legal costs) for nine claimants. At least four of the nine abuse victims were compensated by Maidenhead Council for being  raped by Denham Gilbart-Smith, the man unnamed  in the BBC article below.


2006 immediately after the compensation pay outs, RBWM or MMi the RBWM insurers sued Denham Gilbart-Smith to recover their loss.

2007 in the spring of 2007 Gilbart-Smith made a seven figure payment to RBWM MMi to keep his paedophile activities a secret. Included in this out of court settlement;

  1. RBWM/MMi agreed to keep the name Gilbart-Smith a secret.
  2. RBWM/MMi further agreed to keep the amount of money Gilbart-Smith paid a secret.
  3. RBWM/MMi further agreed to exclude Gilbart-Smith from being pursued financially, if RBWM/MMi paid compensation to any more of Gilbart-Smiths rape victims.

2007 early in 2007 totally unaware of this court case and compensation payout, I was asked by the publisher Verite to consider writing my autobiography. In consideration of this request, I googled all the names of my known childhood abusers. After finding a photo of Denham Gilbart-Smith on his company website, I contacted Child Abuse Lawyers and chose to contact Alan Collins from a list of solicitors Child Abuse Lawyers emailed me. I chose Alan Collins solely because he was geographically the closest, being only an eighteen minute drive from my home. I was very surprised to find out that Mr Collins had recently closed a case for nine other kids that went to Green Field House.

2007 on the 27th March 2007 Alan Collins submitted the below letter to RBWM.

2008 Verite published my book and I sent a copy to Windsor police.

RBWM denied all responsibility for my claim for the next eighteen months. The reason Alan Collins (solicitor) advised me was, RBWM were waiting for a ruling on a case the law lords were making, where Shirley Woodman was attempting to sue the the rapist Iorworth Hoare, who had won £7 million on the lottery whilst on day release from prison. Apparently until that ruling was made, RBWM would not accept any responsibility. What the lotto rapist had to do with me being abused in a Maidenhead childrens home I really have no idea, especially as RBWM had already in a secret deal been pre-paid by Gilbart-Smith for having raped me.

On 22nd September 2008 RBWM agreed to pay me £50,000 compensation for being raped by Denham Gilbart-Smith and others. Had I known RBWM had been paid upfront by Gilbart-Smith for raping me when I was a ten year old kid, I would never have settled the claim. I would have probably considered a private prosecution against Gilbart-Smith.

There is a very strong possibility that RBWM received more money from Gilbart-Smith than they actually paid out in rape claims. If that is the case then RBWM MMi have actually made money from children in their care being abused and raped by Gilbart-Smith and others.

2008 after a twelve month police investigation, Gilbart-Smith was eventually charged with seventeen counts of rape and child abuse, thirteen of which can be seen in the below charge sheet.

2010 by 2010 RBWM/MMi had paid compensation to 21 abuse victims, between 10 -13 of these claimants, had been compensated by RBWM/MMi for being raped or sexually abused by Gilbart-Smith.

The six week trial started on Monday 17th May at Reading Crown court case number T20097272.

For some reason not yet understood Tony Knott the photographer, was not involved in the police investigation or the six week trial. As a result of the secret contract RBWM MMi had entered into with Gilbart-Smith, at the 2010 trial, this out of court settlement had to be kept a secret from the jury, so the jury had ZERO chance of being told the truth from the outset.

On Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th May 2010, Willy Walters gave evidence that he was raped and abused at Greenfield house. Walters also told the court that he would rape and abuse the younger boys as Prescott commanded. Walters then committed perjury by saying he had little to do with the posh man. (meaning Gilbart-Smith).

The following morning Friday 21st May, as Gilbart-Smith sat in the dock at Reading Crown Court, Walters was murdered! Walters died in the exact same way as Gilbart-Smiths two other blackmailers. All three blackmailers felt well enough to get out of bed to go about their daily business, all three blackmailers had a heart attack in a public place, all three blackmailers died of the heart attack immediately before reaching hospital.

With Walters now dead, Gilbart-Smiths defence challenged one of his rape victim stating that; he was confused and mistaken, as it was not Gilbart-Smith that had driven him in his green MG to the Tudor House on Wandsworth Common London, to be raped  by a group of men at a bonfire party, as the witness told the court, but rather it was Willy Walters that had driven him in the bubble car from Maidenhead to South London to be raped by this group of men. (The bubble car only had one seat) To use this ridiculous defence strategy Gilbart-Smith 100% knew Walters was dead!

If Walters was still alive he would have been EXTREMELY angry and 100% would of told the truth about what really happened concerning the police corruption and the blackmail payments etc. Walters would have 100% blown Gilbart-Smith right out of the universe with the truth of what really happened.

Nine men who live in different parts of the country and hadn’t seen each other for forty years gave compelling evidence of how they were raped and abused by Gilbart-Smith.

  • Gilbart-Smith agreed with the council’s records that he was an unpaid helper at the children’s home
  • Gilbart-Smith agreed with the prosecution that all of the other men that visited Greenfield House were paedophiles.
  • Gilbart-Smith further agreed that he went on holiday with the paedophiles and the boys to London, Kent, Sussex and Cornwall.
  • Gilbart-Smith agreed that he now understands the boys were raped in these locations, but at the time he didn’t know that his friends were paedophiles, he didn’t know that the boys were being raped and he didn’t rape any of the boys.
  • Gilbart-Smith’s only defence other than character witnesses was his personal denial which was nonsense being peppered with ridiculous lies, which can be read in the court transcripts or seen in the below video.

Based on Judge Johns instructions, the jury had to reach a verdict based on who was telling the truth, the nine men or Denham Gilbart-Smith. Below is a seventeen minute factual overview of the six week trial and its conclusion. To make complete sense of this story, watch the video before continuing.

I was totally disgusted with the trial outcome and was sent to prison for twelve months for contempt of court. I was ecstatic and feeling very pleased with myself as I got Gilbart-Smiths mugshot on the six o’clock & ten o’clock news, and in every single UK newspaper.

Before the trial in 2010 Gilbart-Smith sold his insurance business IMS, after the trial Mr & Mrs Gilbart-Smith became residents and deserted their children and grandchildren fleeing to Northern Cyprus, a Muslim country that is residency to numerous UK criminals, as Northern Cyprus have no extradition treaty with the UK. Mr & Mrs Gilbart-Smith also travel to other countries that don’t have an extradition treaty with the UK such as Vietnam.


2013 in November 2013 under the F.O.I. (Freedom of  information act)  David Davies of RBWM publicly admits to entering into a gagging order made with an unnamed man who was named as an abuser. Compensation claims totalled £569,750, whilst legal costs were £732,500.

The cheque Gilbart-Smith paid RBWM MMi was seven figures. There is a strong possibility that RBWM received more money from Gilbart-Smith, than the £1,302,250 they eventually paid out in compensation and legal costs. If that is the case as I suspect it may well be, RBWM technically are paedophile pimps, as they would be guilty of making a profit from children being raped by Denham Gilbart-Smith.

2014 on 21st March 2014 DB visited his Maidenhead MP’s surgery and asked Theresa May what her policy would be, concerning the secret £1m paedophile hush payment made to RBWM with a gagging order to protect the man accused of raping a dozen or so young children. Mrs May avoided giving an answer which can clearly be seen in the below letter.

NOTE: This letter was written a few months before Mrs Mays now famous 2014 parliament speech on child abuse. Notice how in direct contradiction to Mrs May’s speech, she swerves answering DB’s concerns;

“we discussed your concerns”

“I appreciate your concerns” 

“I have raised this matter”

As Home secretary and after Mrs May’s famous 2014 speech, Mrs May has been asked the same question by Mike Thornton MP (09/01/15), Mimms, Davies MP (02/03/16), Norman Baker MP (03/03/15), Nick de Bois MP (2015), and John Redwood MP (10/03/15). The MP’s letters and dates can be seen in the journalist pack. Mrs May never answered any of the above MP’s.

2015 Mike Thornton MP received the below email from Christabel Shawcross MD of the RBWM council. Christabel Shawcroft amazingly breaches RBWM’s secret million pound contract by naming Gilbart-Smith as the man RBWM was accusing of raping numerous children in their care. Shawcroft then tells us that after RBWM MMi had compensated numerous rape victims of Gilbart-Smith, Gilbart-Smith reimbursed these costs to RBWM MMi.

I can tell you with 100% confidence, the payment made by Gilbart-Smith was seven figures. I wonder if Gilbart-Smith will sue RBWM for the return of his million pound paedophile payment, as RBWM are now clearly in breach of the legal terms of their 2008 paedophile deal.

As well as breaking the secret agreement, Christabel makes some very naive statements in light of the Home secretaries 2014 speech concerning paedophiles.

As a direct result of RBWM and MMi the insurers of BCC entering into a secret agreement with Gilbart-Smith RBWM MMi;

  1. Perverted any future criminal investigation as the police were no longer allowed to use the information contained in this now secret agreement.
  2. Perverted the course of justice as in any future court case this massive paedophile payment has to be kept a secret, so the facts can no longer be used as evidence.
  3. At the 2010 trial each prosecution witness was asked if they were aware that Gilbart-Smith had settled a claim out of court with RBWM. Each witness was warned by John Price Q.C. that if they mentioned this to the jury the case would be thrown out of court.

CHRISTABEL SHAWCROFT QUOTE: “At the time of the compensation claims Mr Gilbart-Smith was not subject to any criminal prosecution”.

MY RESPONSE: Exactly Miss Shawcroft! This is precisely why RBWM MMi should have given their files to the police to assist a criminal investigation instead entering into a SECRET agreement and hindering any future police investigation…..

You really couldn’t make this stuff up, it’s taken five years for the Home Office to advise me to complain to the council for receiving a £1M hush money payment from a man they are suing for being an active paedophile in one of the council run homes. Dear Mrs Newton, Should I also complain to Mr Gilbart-Smith for raping me when I was a ten year old kid?

Mrs May, recently with the Brexit negotiations, you have had a lot of practice making deals! As the MP for Maidenhead, in the light of your 2014 speech, can you please let me understand your policy regarding the secret £1m paedophile payment, made between Denham Gilbart-Smith & Maidenhead Council.

In the anticipation of your very late response,
