James Edward Hanson married into the Meinertzhagen banking family, the patriarch of which, Sir Richard Meinertzhagen, was the first of His Majesty’s professional spies in this century.

Richard’ s cousin, Daniel Meinertzhagen, joined Lazard Brothers in 1936, and served as Lazard Brothers chairman from 1973 to 1980, and was also af director of Pearson and Son Ltd.,

 

James Hanson’s partner, Vincent Gordon White, commanded Special Operations Executive Force 136 in the Far East in the 1940s. White’s brother shared an apartment with Hanson at the time.

He was a Royal Air Force pilot during World War II in clandestine operations in India, Burma and Thailand. It was during the war that White became friends with Bill Hanson, British show-jumping star and younger brother of James Hanson.

Lord Lucan and Daniel Meinertzhagen

Lucan also failed to arrive for his 1:00 pm lunch appointment with artist Dominic Elwes and banker Daniel Meinertzhagen, again at the Clermont.[53]

“You have to be prepared to say no when no is the best advice,” was one of his dictums. The formidable takeover player Lord Hanson once told an interviewer: “I could always confide in Meinertzhagen. His impartial advice would be based on my needs, not his.”

Peter Richard Meinertzhagen was born in London on April 16 1946 into an Anglo-German dynasty which had been prominent in the City since a Daniel Meinertzhagen from Bremen married the daughter of another émigré, Frederick Huth, and became a partner in his London banking house in 1833. Though Huth & Co lost much of its trade-finance business during the First World War and closed in 1936, the Meinertzhagens became part of the City establishment — and lived in appropriately grand style at Mottisfont Abbey in Hampshire.

Peter’s father, also Daniel, was one of four so-called “Colonels” (managing partners) who ran the merchant banking house of Lazards — in a style so relaxed that he habitually snoozed at his desk after lunch with a copy of The Times over his face, and argued against competitive “touting for business”. Peter’s uncle Luke Meinertzhagen was senior partner of Cazenove, while another uncle, Sir Peter, ran the Commonwealth Development Corporation.

3 September 1992

THE father of a teenage student who fell to her death after drinking 17 tequilas has called for a tightening of licensing laws.

Georgina Meinertzhagen, 16, fell from a second-floor bedroom window of lodgings in Oxford, where she was attending a tutorial college. Georgina, a great-niece of the industrialist Lord Hanson, had spent an evening with friends at an Oxford bar where tequila was served at 50p a measure.

Nicholas Gardiner, the Oxford coroner, said he accepted the police theory that she sat on the window ledge to get fresh air, but lost her hand-hold. He recorded a verdict of accidental death.

After the hearing her father, Daniel Meinertzhagen, a Lloyd’s name, of Chelsea, south-west London, said he would not be taking civil action against the bar, Pier 19. ‘Nothing can bring my daughter back.’

Gambling expert Dan Meinertzhagen, who has died at 72, was the last surviving member of a group of six of Lord Lucan’s friends who met at John Aspinall’s Belgravia home after the peer vanished 40 years ago. 

An Oxford boxing blue, Old Etonian Dan’s life was set when, aged 21, the morning after an all-night gambling session, he was being driven home in a Rolls-Royce. 

Spotting his father at a King’s Road bus stop en route to his City job as chairman of Lazard, Dan, in black tie, rolled down the window and enquired: ‘Daddy, do you want a lift to work?’ Meinertzhagen Sr ‘frothed at the mouth’, we’re told.

Lord Lucan


Lady Lucan ‘left her fortune to charity rather than her children’

Lady Lucan’s husband, John Bingham, the 7th Earl of Lucan, disappeared in November 1974.

Lady Lucan, whose husband famously vanished in the 1970s, cut her children out of her will and left her fortune to a homeless charity, her daughter is reported to have said.

The 80-year-old was found dead at her home in Westminster, central London, by police in September after she was reported missing.

Lady Lucan, formally named Veronica, Dowager Countess of Lucan, severed relations with her family in the 1980s, and continued to decline contact with them right up until her death.

She had three children, Frances, Camilla and George, now the 8th Earl of Lucan.

Camilla Bingham, a QC, told the Daily Mail after an inquest held in London: “Mummy left her estate to the homeless charity, Shelter.”

The charity told the newspaper the proceeds will “help us to continue fighting bad housing and homelessness”.

Despite Lady Lucan’s severance of ties her family said they remembered her “lovingly and with admiration”.

They said in a statement after her death: “She had a sharp mind, and when she spoke it, she did so eloquently. She was courageous and, at times, outrageous, with a mischievous sense of humour.

“She was, in her day, beautiful and throughout her life fragile and vulnerable, struggling as she did with mental infirmity.

“To us she was and is unforgettable.”

Lady Lucan’s husband, John Bingham, the 7th Earl of Lucan, disappeared in November 1974.

Lord Lucan vanished following the discovery of the body of nanny Sandra Rivett at the family’s home at 46 Lower Belgrave Street, central London, on November 7 1974.

Although officially declared dead by the High Court in 1999, he was reportedly sighted in Australia, Ireland, South Africa and New Zealand, and claims even surfaced that he had fled to India and lived as a hippy called “Jungly Barry”.

On the night of his disappearance, Lady Lucan was also beaten severely before she managed to escape and raise the alarm at a nearby pub, the Plumbers Arms.

Lord Lucan’s car was later found abandoned and soaked in blood in Newhaven, East Sussex, and a year later an inquest jury declared the wealthy peer was the killer.

In 2017 Lady Lucan gave a television interview in which she said she believed Lord Lucan had made the “brave” decision to take his own life.

The aristocrat is said to have killed herself with a cocktail of drink and drugs after wrongly self-diagnosing with Parkinson’s disease.

Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘sex slave’ Virginia Roberts wins round in defamation lawsuit against British socialite and alleged ‘pimp’ Ghislaine Maxwell who ‘passed her around for sex’ and trained her to be ‘everything a man wanted’

  • Virginia Roberts, 33, persuaded a judge to throw out a motion preventing her from suing British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 55, for defamation
  • The defamation suit alleges Maxwell instructed her spokesman to attack Roberts’  honesty and truthfulness and to accuse her of lying’
  • Roberts claimed Maxwell recruited her as a sex slave when she was  15 for convicted pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and passed around to his friends
  • Maxwell, who was Epstein’s girlfriend at the time, is also accused of forcing her to have sex with Maxwell and other underage girls
  • The 55-year-old responded to the allegations with a damaging press release 
  • In February 2016, a judge denied Maxwell’s request to throw out Roberts’ lawsuit when she said she was just defending herself against allegations
  • Roberts also alleges she was involved in an 11-person orgy with Epstein’s friend Prince Andrew

The Truth Will Come Out! Jeffrey Epstein’s Alleged Madam Loses BIG In Court

May 3 2017

A lawsuit brought by a former ‘sex slave’ will move forward

Roberts, filing under her married name Giuffre, described very graphic sexual situations in the lawsuit filed in September 2015.

“With the assistance of Maxwell, Epstein was able to sexually abuse Giuffre for years until Giuffre eventually escaped,” the lawsuit says. “As part of their sex trafficking efforts, Epstein and Maxwell intimidated Giuffre into remaining silent about what had happened to her.”

It was while working for Epstein, Roberts claimed, that she had sex with Prince Andrew. She also said she took part in an orgy that the Prince attended on the financier’s private Caribbean island. (The royal has strongly denied all her claims.)

The defamation trial is expected to begin May 15.

FBI RECORDS ON JEFFREY EPSTEIN

https://vault.fbi.gov/

Jeffrey Epstein ‘sex slave’ trial postponed

May 10 2017

Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell (top) and Virginia Roberts Giuffre (bottom)

The defamation trial against Epstein’s friend Ghislaine Maxwell was set to start Monday — more than a decade after the billionaire was first arrested for soliciting underage girls — but it has been postponed because lawyers are close to negotiating a settlement, sources say.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre is suing Maxwell, whose late father owned the Daily News, in Manhattan federal court because Maxwell called her a liar.

Giuffre — who was 15 and working as a towel girl at Mar-a-Lago when Maxwell met her — claims Epstein turned her into a slave and forced her to have sex with his friends, including Prince Andrew, Duke of York, who denied her allegations.

Since Epstein was also friends with Bill Clinton, and was defended by Alan Dershowitz, their names were dragged into the case, too. But sources say they were never going to be called as witnesses.

Now, in a big disappointment to journalists, anti-sex-trafficking activists and Clinton haters, there may be no trial.

“After 11 years and much high drama, [Giuffre’s lawyer] David Boies asked his client to settle the case,” one insider told me.

Giuffre has already collected a settlement from Epstein and sold her story to the UK’s Daily Mail, but her testimony was hotly anticipated.

The blonde was expected to tell in sordid detail how Maxwell routinely recruited young girls and taught them how to give erotic massages that led to sex and prostitution.

If they don’t settle, the trial is now set for May 25.

In an affidavit filed last year, Roberts said that she had had sex with Prince Andrew (pictured with Jeffrey Epstein on a stroll in New York) on Epstein's properties. Prince Andrew emphatically denied her allegations

Career maker: Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, aspiring actress Cressida Bonas, poses with Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein  at a screening of the latter’s new film Big Eyes in London

Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas slopes off to hobnob with ANOTHER Epstein pal

When Prince Harry’s former girlfriend Cressida Bonas agreed to go skiing with her chum Princess Eugenie, she had no idea she would be caught up in the storm engulfing the Duke of York.

After Prince Andrew joined his daughter and her model friend at their £22,000-per-week chalet in the Alps, it was besieged by the world’s media amid a growing furore over claims Andrew had sex with an under-age girl ‘procured’ for him by his close friend, convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

So it was an unfortunate coincidence that Cressie’s first public engagement on returning to London on Sunday was a bash thrown by another of Epstein’s friends, film producer Harvey Weinstein.

Sloping off: Cressida has recently returned to London from spending time in Verbier in the Swiss Alps with her old friend Princess Eugenie and her family

Dressed in a midriff-baring outfit with her glossy mane worn loose, the 25-year-old posed next to Weinstein, 62, at a screening of his latest offering, Big Eyes.

(Lurking behind was Charles Dance, who in 2004 famously seduced vicar’s daughter Sophia Myles, 33 years his junior, and then cruelly dumped her.)

Despite the movie mogul’s long-standing association with Epstein — the two even made a failed bid for New York magazine in 2003 — the screening was an occasion not to be missed for aspiring thespian Cressida.

Weinstein, who is married to 38-year-old fashion designer Georgina Chapman, a friend of the Duchess of York, is known for mentoring young actresses.

(L to R) Harvey Weinstein, Princess Eugenie of York and Georgina Chapman at attends a VIP screening of ‘Lion’ hosted by Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman at Soho House on December 19, 2016 in London, England

He is credited with propelling Gwyneth Paltrow (pictured below) to A-list status, having collaborated with her on eight films, including Shakespeare In Love, for which she won an Oscar in 1999.

So it is understandable that Cressida, who scored a small part in Harvey’s forthcoming movie Tulip Fever, is keen to nurture her relationship with the Hollywood tycoon.

Aptly she plays a ‘society lady’ in the film, which is based on Deborah Moggach’s novel.

Since splitting with Harry, ambitious Cressida has been taking her acting career seriously.

Last month, she attended a private vocal training school on Orkney to improve her articulation and projection skills.

Meanwhile, her first play, There’s A Monster In The Lake, is being revived later this month at Waterloo Vaults.

Perhaps Cressie, who has given few signs she wants to rekindle her romance with Harry, has set her sights on an even more desirable prize than a prince: an Oscar.

Hansard

Mr. Kinnock

Will the Prime Minister confirm that she is willing—even eager—to sell off PowerGen at a knockdown price to Lord Hanson, another friend of the family?

There is private enterprise, and there is looking after your friends. I think that the country can tell the difference between the two. [Hon. Members: 294“Withdraw!”] How can anyone who is selling off the electricity industry say that he is trying to get a good deal for the country, in any case? Most of all, how can anyone who is selling off that industry at a third of its value say that he is getting good value for the country? Whatever happened to the undertaking given by the Secretary of State for Energy that no one—neither organisation nor individual—would ever be allowed to own more than 15 per cent. of the company?

The Prime Minister can twist and turn all she likes. The truth is that, in breach of the promises that she has already made, she is selling off at a fraction of its value a highly profitable company to a bosom chum and major contributor to the Conservative party. Is not it obvious that this Session is ending as it began—with sleaze and shadiness at the heart of the Government?

THE MAFIA, MONEY LAUNDERING AND THE LAST SECRET OF MRS T’S FAVOURITE TYCOON;

Revealed: The Explosive Dossiers Linking Lord Hanson to the Mob – and How Both Reports Were Suppressed

IN ITS obituary of Lord Hanson, who died earlier this month aged 82, the Financial Times chose its words guardedly: “After his marriage to the American divorcee Geraldine Kaelin in 1959, he settled down and became very protective of his privacy. Like [Lord] White however, he continued to enjoy the company of attractive young women.”

They liked to fool around, did the peer and his late business partner. As they built their fortunes, taking over company after company, Gordy White and James Hanson lived the swashbuckling life to the full. Buccaneering and charismatic, the debonair duo were far removed from the stereotypical British businessman. In America, they were feted and revered: English lords who knew how to charm and to play, and to make a buck.

But there was a darker side to the legend of Hanson and White, which only now – given his reputation for resisting perceived intrusion into his personal life – can be told. Hanson and White were long suspected by Scotland Yard, the Drug Enforcement Agency in the US, and some of their business enemies in this country, of having close ties to the Mafia.

Repeatedly, in the 1970s and early 1980s, Hanson’s name and those of some of his companies cropped up in official investigations. In 1983, two Scotland Yard officers – DCI Sparks and DC Summers – visited the US to examine links between Hanson and the Gambino and Genovese crime families. In the subsequent report, by Scotland Yard’s C1 department, a copy of which has been obtained by the Evening Standard, detectives appealed to be allowed to probe further.

Having concluded there was insufficient evidence to block Hanson from sitting on the board of Trident Television, which owned a casino as well as a TV station, the report, dated 9 September 1983, states: “Equally there is clearly sufficient doubt created by some of the company connections to suggest that further research is needed … ” None of these suspicions was ever publicly aired at the time. The detectives’ doubts remained a closely guarded secret. If they had ever been revealed, they would have caused a sensation, for under the Thatcher government, no businessman enjoyed the ear of the Prime Minister more than Hanson.

They surfaced again, albeit behind closed doors, when, in 1986, Hanson launched an audacious takeover bid for Imperial Tobacco. The Evening Standard has spoken to those who worked on Imperial’s defence at the time. They remember how they sent a former Scotland Yard Deputy Commissioner to the US to look into his business dealings there. To their astonishment, the corporate gumshoe returned with a list of associations between Hanson and the US underworld.

In which case, why was it never used?

Why didn’t they release the dirt they had gathered, or even hint at it, to discredit the corporate aggressor?

“It went to the top of Imperial. They wouldn’t let it be used,” was an ex-Imperial adviser’s far from satisfactory explanation. He said he thought that Imperial was literally terrified of using the material they’d uncovered.

Hanson, he was certain, knew they had it and at least one very senior Imperial director was warned against disclosing it and told in no uncertain terms to call off the investigators. “We didn’t do anything with it, but if you recall, Hanson never did a high-profile hostile takeover again after Imperial.”

HE DID plenty of deals but nothing that would provoke a backlash. The only time he appeared to be gearing for an all-out attack, against ICI, in 1991, he backed down. That was after investigators hired by ICI had found Hanson and White had poured millions of pounds of shareholders’ money into investments in racehorses in the US which had not been disclosed.

Perhaps if he had launched an assault on ICI, the Mafia connection would have come to light. In the event, the racing revelations were enough to force him to back down.

A copy of the study compiled by Imperial has been supplied to the Evening Standard. Together with the official Scotland Yard document, it presents a quite different picture of the charming tycoon, and raises questions which, given his prominence, should have been answered.

The Imperial report is headed Enquiries into Hanson Trust. It says: “The results of enquiries conducted into corporate activities of the Hanson Trust and its subsidiaries in the UK and the US are such as to believe that if they were brought to the attention of the relevant authorities, a full investigation might have to be carried out before the bid for Imperial Group was allowed to proceed.”

Suspicion fell on Hanson in three areas. In 1978, Hanson Trust took over a Chicago company called Interstate United Corporation for $29.5 million in cash. It was described as a foodservice business but it also had subsidiaries involved in gaming and vending machines – industries in the US viewed as being under the control of organised crime. Indeed, Interstate and its employees had been the subject of a series of law actions and investigations before Hanson bought the firm.

The Scotland Yard report states about Interstate: “The Denver, Colorado police suspect that this was a laundering operation.”

In 1976, the New Jersey police were pursuing the Gambino family.

Interstate owned restaurants in the New Jersey area and one of them, Valentino’s, in Cherry Hill, was sold to a member of the Gambino family for $150,000. In 1979, a year after Hanson had bought Interstate, records of the New Jersey Alcohol Beverage Control Bureau showed the English entrepreneur’s acquisition held a $100,000 mortgage on Valentino’s.

Peter Tullio, the president of Interstate at the time of the takeover, admitted in court that he approved $40,000 in payoffs to a restaurant union official. In March 1980, two years after Hanson had taken charge, the city commissioner of Portland, Oregon, described an Interstate company, Volume Services Inc, which had been awarded a contract-for food sales, as a “summary of a corporation with a history of making payments to union officials – some with known Mafia connections”.

STANLEY “Sonny” Singer, the former local president of Interstate in Colorado, was quoted in a written document submitted to a court in 1980 to have established a “slush fund” of $60,000 to make loans to several of the company’s best cigarette customers.

In 1982, an inquiry was held into the way Volume Services won the contract to supply beer at Soldier Field for the Chicago Bears’ football games. In 1985, Hanson disposed of Interstate.

Another Hanson operation to interest the authorities was a trucking business. It changed its name to Canadian Freightway Eastern and moved out of the jurisdiction of the US to Hamilton, Ontario – but not before it had attracted the attention of the DEA. The US drug busters suspected its vehicles were being used to ferry narcotics from Mexico across North America.

But by far the most important strand of the authorities’ investigations concerned a 1975 payment to a US government employee by a suspected Mafia member and gunrunner. The woman official was paid a large sum of money – the Scotland Yard report doesn’t say how much – by one Jaime Moreno.

According to the Scotland Yard report, the “payment was believed to be connected with a large gambling debt incurred by the official while she was stationed in Nice”. She had met Moreno, “who she stated was a wealthy man who owned a yacht in which he commuted between England and the South of France”.

(The detectives later suspected the yacht belonged to Hanson.) The only Jaime Moreno the police could find was a gunrunner from Arizona. What whetted their appetites, though, was the address the woman official gave for Moreno: PO Box 2266 Palm Springs, California. This was a postal pickup address. Four people used the PO Box, including Moreno and Hanson, and the address they gave was that of Hanson’s winter home in Palm Springs, which he used between November and April each year.

One of the four was identified as a Canadian, retired employee of Hanson’s trucking company. He and his wife were caretakers of Hanson’s house. The police interviewed the local postal inspector who said the only mail sent to PO Box 2266 consisted of “small blue papers, folded in half and bearing a return address in Canada”. They examined telephone records for the house “for a period when Hanson was resident … calls had been made to two individuals of note to the DEA”, names we cannot reveal for legal reasons.

The Scotland Yard report says that one of them was a Beverly Hills boutique owner. He had been named in an FBI file as being “part of the second French Connection heroin smuggling ring”. The other was known to the Hollywood police as an associate of the notorious mob boss, Meyer Lansky.

THE DEA had details on file of Hanson meeting Moreno and two associates at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Then the Scotland Yard document says: “Confidential informant of the FBI stated that the Palm Springs residence was being used for ‘illegal activities’ and named Hanson. The informant alleged that the PO Box was being used as a mail drop.”

In their report, the London detectives conclude of Hanson: “There is further circumstantial evidence of connections to organised crime which, while not being conclusive by itself, does reinforce the doubts about Hanson which arise from putting all the fragments together”.

But the investigation ceased.

According to one source, the detectives handed their report up the command line. It carried a clip as having been seen by two people, with the initials HW and PM. No action was ever taken. If he knew he was the subject of such intense speculation, Hanson never let on. Who knows what more strange ties a proper investigation would have uncovered. There may have been an innocent explanation, of course. The point is, the police never had the chance to find out.

GOGA Ashkenazi, the glamorous oil and gas tycoon, has vociferously defended her “close friend” Prince Andrew and offered insight into his “distressed” state of mind.

In an exclusive interview with the Evening Standard, she says that the Duke of York (who has not yet spoken to the press) had messaged her on his Black-Berry over the weekend, asking, “Have you seen the papers?” and saying that he was “very, very upset” about the way he has been portrayed and “very, very worriedabout whether he’d be able to continue his role as a trade envoy.

Andrew is under “massive and unfair media pressure”, she says, following revelations concerning his friend of 15 years, Jeffrey Epstein, 58, who was sentenced to 18 months in prison in 2008 for soliciting a minor for prostitution.

“I told Andrew not to worry, that he’d done nothing wrong, and that it was being blown out of proportion. Of course, he knows it was unwise to fraternise with this Epstein character, and it was silly to be photographed with his arm around Epstein’s masseuse [Virginia Roberts]. But I know Andrew as a lovely, lovely man kind-hearted, impeccably behaved and honourable and I’m quite sure that at the time he had no idea that she was underage or anything more than a masseuse to Epstein.”

The Oxford-educated socialite who lives in a [pounds sterling] 28 million mansion in Holland Park and has known Andrew since the late Lord Hanson’s son Robert introduced them at a party in 2001.

Sources close to the duchess suggested the trip was paid for by Sir Sol. His office last night failed to respond to repeated attempts to contact them.

A source close to the duchess said: ‘Sol Kerzner is an old friend and this was a long-standing invitation. It’s just a couple of nights and it’s not a holiday, it’s a party.

Law suit: Robert Hanson, with wife Masha Markova, is being sued by the ex-boss of a pornographic film company

Society shock as Lord Hanson’s eligible son Robert finally settles down

Robert Hanson married Masha Markova, a Russian businesswoman 25 years his junior.

Robert Hanson: The happy family man steering Hanson empire into new territory

Barely three months after Robert Hanson married Masha Markova, a Russian businesswoman 25 years his junior, the son of the late industrialist Lord Hanson has found himself embroiled in an unseemly courtroom battle involving a pornographic film company.

Hanson, 49, is being sued by David Newnham of Victoria, in Australia, who claims to be owed £350,000, including interest, after he was sacked as the chief executive of Woodman Entertainment, a Spanish company involved in making pornographic films such as Psycho Sex, Wide Open and Sex Carnage.

Newnham says he met Hanson at the Mayfair offices of his company Hanson Capital. It is a Hanson Family Holdings company, of which Hanson is the chairman.

The deputy chairman is Sir Hayden Phillips, the chairman of the National Theatre and charities consultant to the Prince of Wales. Its directors include the Earl of Dartmouth, the Ukip MEP

Naomi Campbell and Masha Markova Hanson attend The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Markova is slightly hazy about her origins. Her parents left Russia in the 1990s for Panama, and their business involved “some freight trucks, transport,” she told Tatler, with probably about as much interest as her squeeze has in haulage. Her parents now live in Miami, and she met Hanson Jr. in Palm Springs. Now “the whole of London is talking about the union of the long-legged Russian and the most eligible British bachelor,” the magazine wrote.

“Masha Markova is quite the partier”

…. a few intriguing hints about Hanson and Markova’s lifestyle. They have a Filipino housekeeper whom Hanson will never sack because she might write memoirs, Markova said. And the whole apartment is decorated with blown-up photos of Markova, some with her in a bikini and some with no clothes at all. Markova charmingly explains that she wanted smaller ones but she thought that she was ordering the size in centimeters, not inches.

Markova is running a fashion store — of course — after studying at Columbia University. But she wouldn’t be a Russian It Girl if she didn’t have artistic aspirations, too. She displays paintings of guns and beautiful thin women on her web site Mashamarkova.com.

There’s plenty of name-dropping in the interview. Markova went to the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation gala dinner organized by Alexander Lebedev & Son at Hampton Court Palace this summer and said she was told about Michael Jackson’s death by Elton John, no less.

Robert Hanson’s X-rated Lawsuit

The Hon. Robert Hanson was being sued by David Newnham in Australia claiming he was owed £350K including interest after he was sacked as chief executive of Woodman Entertainment, a company based in Barcelona in Spain that produces rough sex “Hardcore Sex Films.

 

It is claimed The Hon. Robert Hanson held a financial investment in Pierre Woodman company Woodman Entertainment.

The company in question, based in Spain, is Woodman Entertainment, founded by fashion photographer- turned-pornographer Pierre Woodman, the creator of more than 60 X-rated films, who claims to have bedded more than 3,500 women.

Hanson, who once dated model Sophie Anderton, herself exposed as an escort girl by a tabloid newspaper, tells me: ‘I am talking to my lawyers and I am not allowed to say anything.

‘But I take this seriously, I can assure you.’

In the writ, it is claimed that Hanson guaranteed the salary of David Newnham, who joined the company as chief executive in August 2008, on a two-year contract on £147,000 a year.

But Newnham left two months later, claiming he had not been paid. Newnham is now claiming the money, plus interest and court fees from Hanson. says a friend: ‘This writ is somewhat absurd. There are two sides to every story.’

But it is all a far cry from when Robert Hanson joined Rothschilds in the eighties, later joining the eponymous company of his tycoon father, who was Baroness thatcher’s favourite industrialist.

Another NM Rothschild man…

From 1982–84, John Whittingdale was head of the political section of the Conservative Research Department. He then served as Special Adviser to three successive Secretaries of State for Trade and Industry, Norman Tebbit, 1984–85; Leon Brittan, 1985–86, and Paul Channon, 1986–87.

 

He worked on international privatisation at NM Rothschild in 1987 and in January 1988, became Political Secretary to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Upon her resignation Whittingdale was appointed OBE and continued to serve as her Political Secretary until being elected to Parliament in 1992.[5]

We may never learn the truth about “corrupt” deals involving Margaret Thatcher and her son Mark after another “establishment cover-up”.

The National Archives are releasing hundreds of government records and notes of Cabinet meetings under the 30-year-rule, covering 1986 to 1988, the middle of Margaret Thatcher’s reign at No10.

But two entitled “Cementation contract: Mark Thatcher and the Omanis” covering the period from 1981 to 1988 are listed as being “retained” for 65 years – meaning they will not be released until 2053 when Sir Mark would be aged 99.

Two others – one entitled “Mark Thatcher and the Omanis; other allegations against Mark Thatcher” and “Request by Electronic Data Systems to employ Mark Thatcher” have been “temporarily retained” with no date for release.

The decision to keep the files closed was ultimately taken by former Culture Secretary John Whittingdale, who served as Mrs Thatcher’s political secretary in the last months of her tenure in No10 and who signed off on the secrecy.

John Whittingdale’s half-brother Charles Napier was treasurer of PIE Paedophile Information Exchange

Rothschilds and Jeffrey Epstein
 The Hanson family worked for the Rothschilds

Jacob Rothschild and Lord Mandelson  – Peter Mandelson is controlling director of the NSPCC

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children

Friends in high places: Lord Mandelson has also vacationed on Epstein’s island

Lord Mandelson yesterday maintained his silence over the extent of his contact with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

The former Business Secretary did not respond to questions about why the convicted paedophile’s ‘little black book’ featured ten entries for him and his partner Reinaldo da Silva

When Lord Mandelson, the globe-trotting business consultant, recently announced plans to rent “a modest dwelling in deepest Wiltshire next-door to the herdsman and his family”, he was not being strictly accurate.

It emerges that the one-time Labour business secretary’s humble bucolic retreat is, in fact, a four-bedroom house owned by the billionaire Rothschild dynasty, which enjoys uninterrupted views over the Marlborough Downs.

Lord Mandelson is famously well-acquainted with Nat Rothschild, the natural resources investor known for his ill-fated foray into Indonesian coal miner Bumi, thanks to the pair’s shared trips to Siberian saunas and Mediterranean jaunts aboard the yacht owned by Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

But Diary understands that Nat, who is these days based mostly in Switzerland, spends little time at the farmhouse. The property is owned by his parents, Lord Rothschild, the RIT Capital Partners chairman, and Lady Serena.

Nathaniel Rothschild says sauna with Lord Mandelson was purely pleasure, not business

Barely three months after Robert Hanson married Masha Markova, a Russian businesswoman 25 years his junior, the son of the late industrialist Lord Hanson has found himself embroiled in an unseemly courtroom battle involving a pornographic film company.
Hanson, 49, is being sued by David Newnham of Victoria, in Australia, who claims to be owed £350,000, including interest, after he was sacked as the chief executive of Woodman Entertainment, a Spanish company involved in making pornographic films such as Psycho Sex, Wide Open and Sex Carnage.
In documents filed at the High Court, Newnham alleges that Hanson has a financial interest in Woodman and, in August 2008, guaranteed his salary for two years. He was, however, sacked in October that year and is now seeking to compel Hanson to honour the agreement.

Newnham says he met Hanson at the Mayfair offices of his company Hanson Capital.

It is a Hanson Family Holdings company, of which Hanson is the chairman.

The deputy chairman is Sir Hayden Phillips, the chairman of the National Theatre and charities consultant to the Prince of Wales.

Its directors include the Earl of Dartmouth, the Ukip MEP. There is no reference on the company’s website to Woodman.

Hanson, who was once engaged to the model Sophie Anderton and whose father was a close ally of Margaret Thatcher, declines to comment. He was on holiday yesterday with his wife.

2010

In Lord Ashcroft’s absence, the committee beat up Sir Hayden Phillips, a retired Whitehall eminence who once held the claret jug for Roy Jenkins and later Derry Irvine. Jowly Sir Hayden is florid of face. His hooter is the colour of a lunchtime burgundy.

I sometimes come across him during interval drinks at the Royal National Theatre, where he is chairman. Beautifully-mannered Sir Hayden has the rich creaminess of a ripe Stilton.

Sir Hayden Phillips was Clerk of the Crown in Chancery a decade ago. That fancy title meant he was the top wallah on honours and it was up to him to ensure the formalities of procedure were observed.

Lord Ashcroft has been helping Mr Prentice’s Tory opponent in the marginal seat of Pendle. Mr Prentice is very, very cross about this, believing his Commons career to be in peril.

He accused Sir Hayden of ‘swallowing’ assurances from Lord Ashcroft about his tax status. In effect, Sir Hayden was accused of supervising a lax regime.

Well, dears, of course. The last thing Tony Blair wanted ten years ago was a system which subjected possible new peers to minute examination. Lord Levy would have been horrified!

The Ashcroft affair is undoubtedly whiffy and William Hague was foolish to have become quite so enmeshed with one big donor. But it was hardly surprising. Tory donors make it to the Lords, just like Labour’s trade union friends.

(While the concrete business was central to the case, the trial also proved extortion, narcotics, rigged union elections and murders by the Genovese and Gambino crime families in what Michael Chertoff, the chief prosecutor, called “the largest and most vicious criminal business in the history of the United States.”)

FBI agents subpoenaed Trump in 1980 to ask about his dealing with John Cody, a Teamsters official described by law enforcement as a very close associate of the Gambino crime family.

How Donald Trump (also a friend of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein) knows about South Africa

The world’s two major real estate developers, Donald Trump and Sol Kerzner, have been working together quite a bit in the Bahamas and Dubai. No doubt, Donald has been hearing the reality about South Africa from his friend Sol. As regards to what the degree they “hang out together”, the following images may perhaps clarify the situation.

https://hbooyens.wordpress.com/2016/05/09/how-donald-trump-knows-about-south-africa/

He first came to The Bahamas in the late 1960s “when they started developing Paradise Island, and I came here because I was interested always to go and see new hotel developments. I was only here for two days, and then only returned in the 90s.” That was when he acquired more than 600 acres of prime land and a number of not-so-prime properties from Merv Griffin for only $125 million. Griffin had been involved in a struggle with Donald Trump for control of Paradise Island, which left him with no funds to modernize or refurbish the resort once he acquired it.

The vulgar tycoon – There could hardly be a more vulgar or notorious billionaire than South Africa-born casino magnate Sol Kerzner

He created the infamous Sun City in an independent black state within South Africa, symbol of the worst excesses of that country during the apartheid years. There, white people could indulge their every whim, be it soft porn or gambling, and blacks were there only to serve them.

In the U.S. he has been investigated by the New Jersey gaming authorities who concluded that he had bribed a leading African politician
It is little short of extraordinary that a New Labour government should consider him a ‘fit and proper’ person to usher vast casinos into Britain.
…his vast £900million Atlantis Casino on the Bahamas, where according to one recent visitor you can find children of 12 playing some of the 1,200 slot machines.
Kerzner’s second marriage, to Shirley Besthier, came to an end in 1978, when she killed herself. The couple had a three-year-old son and a ten-month-old daughter at the time.
Many saw Sun City as the hideous, patronising and manipulative face of apartheid.

In December 1986, Kerzner was embroiled in fresh bribery allegations, this time that he paid the then Prime Minister of Transkei, George Matanzima, to gain exclusive gaming rights there.

Documents discovered by the New Jersey gaming authorities a decade later confirmed that one of Kerzner’s companies had indeed transferred £600,000 to the trust account of a middle man “for the ultimate benefit of G Matanzima”.

Matanzima was jailed for nine years and a warrant was issued for Kerzner, but he was never to stand trial. Although Kerzner eventually admitted paying the money, he insisted that it was extorted from him.

He made a secret donation of £600,000 to Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress party

Like James Hanson, Donald Trump has ties to the Mafia

After graduating in 1968 from the University of Pennsylvania, a rich young man from the outer boroughs of New York City sought his fortune on the island of Manhattan. Within a few years Donald J. Trump had made friends with the city’s most notorious fixer, lawyer Roy Cohn, who had become famous as lead counsel to Senator Joseph McCarthy. Among other things Cohn was now a mob consigliere, with clients including “Fat Tony” Salerno, boss of the Genovese crime family, the most powerful Mafia group in New York, and Paul Castellano, head of what was said to be the second largest family, the Gambinos.

The indictment on which Salerno was convicted in 1988 and sent to prison, where he died, listed the nearly $8 million contract for concrete at Trump Plaza, an East Side high-rise apartment building, as one of the acts establishing that S &A was part of a racketeering enterprise. (While the concrete business was central to the case, the trial also proved extortion, narcotics, rigged union elections and murders by the Genovese and Gambino crime families in what Michael Chertoff, the chief prosecutor, called “the largest and most vicious criminal business in the history of the United States.”)

Unbeknown to many of the revellers, who included Naomi Campbell and Ivana Trump, Old Etonian Robert, 49, son of industrialist Lord Hanson, is being sued for £358,000 by the former chief executive of a porn film company who claims Robert agreed to guarantee his salary.

So far, so unremarkable.

But what makes this particular writ embarrassing to Robert and his loftily beautiful new wife, Ivy League-educated Masha Markova – at 25, almost half his age – is that the man issuing the legal action against him is the ex-boss of a pornographic film company.

Prince Andrew’s billionaire paedophile friend, Jeffrey Epstein, given permission to land private jet at RAF base for visit Sandringham

Billionaire Epstein was jailed for 18 months in 2008 after admitting soliciting an under-aged girl for prostitution.

He is alleged to have used his fleet of private aircraft to traffic under-aged girls around the world for sex.

The flight log of Epstein’s Gulfstream revealed it touched down at RAF Marham on December 7, 2000, before he was hosted by the Andrew at the Queen’s Norfolk residence.

Aboard the jet that day were someone with the initials ET – thought to be Miss Maxwell’s assistant Emmy Tayler – a woman called Kelly Spam, Epstein’s friend Tom Pritzker and an unnamed female.

Epstein and Miss Maxwell are reported to have stayed at Sandringham as Andrew’s guests, before leaving the country two days later on the same aircraft from Norwich International Airport.

Last year, Prince Andrew was criticised by the National Audit Office for spending £3,000 on a royal chopper to fly him just 50 miles, to a lunch with Arab dignitaries.

In the previous year, after he had been appointed captain of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club, Andrew cost the RAF an eye-watering £32,000, on supersonic jets to fly him between London and St

A FATHER and son died when a helicopter crashed in dense woodland near Crowthorne, Berkshire. Another two children and a man were in hospital last night with serious injuries.

Lord Hanson, chairman of Hanson Trust, of which Air Hanson is a subsidiary, said last night that Capt Bates was ‘a highly experienced helicopter pilot’ who had worked for the company for many years. ‘

Captain Colin Bates, Air Hanson’s chief pilot, 46, and his son, Nicholas, 12, were certified dead at the scene.

Nigel Whiteman, 33, Air Hanson’s chief engineer, suffered severe chest and abdominal injuries.

The aircraft was en route from Newmarket, Suffolk, to Blackbushe airport, where Air Hanson is based. A spokesman for the company said that Capt Bates had taken the boys on a day out.

More on the Hanson Family – James Hanson’s son, the Hon Robert Hanson – friend of Jeffrey Epstein and Sarah Ferguson worked for the Rothschilds.
James Hanson was known for his defense of disgraced Neil Hamilton who also happened to be a very good friend of Harvey Proctor,

The Hon. Robert Hanson a former merchant banker at N.M. Rothschild. He is now chairman of Hanson Family Holdings (Family Office). The Hanson Family also have a joint venture interest in the corporate advisory group “Strand Hanson Limited”.

His grandfather was also named Robert Hanson and was an Ex-Bankrupt. who effectively and with the help of other Hanson family members and some close friends allegedly swindled their customers from their rightful claim for compensation for loss of property due to a fire.

Robert Hanson sold assets of the company before he was made Bankrupt. His grandfather was severely reprimanded by the court for his unscrupulous actions and his Bankruptcy was latter extended.  The Hon. Robert Hanson’s own father Lord (James) Hanson had a long association with asset stripper Jim Slater. 

Lord Hanson was miss-informed there was already a casino at The Ritz Hotel. The reason London Clubs International re-locating their casino The Ritz Club Casino from The Ritz Hotel, was due to the fact David Barclay and Ex-Bankrupt Frederick Barclay who own The Ritz Hotel were demanding a totally unrealistic premium of £20 Million for a new lease of the basement. London Clubs International decided to purchase the Freehold grade II listed building at 50 St James’s Street, London for just over £13 Million a more desirable street, then Piccadilly.

Robert Hanson – his dad was Thatcher’s favourite tycoon, but now he’s accused of selling out Venezuelan newspaper to socialists
Caracas staff say son of Thatcherite peer has made his paper a Socialist Party mouthpiece

16 November 2014

His current involvement with the media is… as owner of Venezuela’s best-selling newspaper. He used his company, Hanson Family Holdings, to acquire the paper last year, reportedly for $98m (£62m).

Now the son of Baroness Thatcher’s favourite industrialist, the late Lord Hanson, is attracting media attention again after reporters on Ultimas Noticias became disgruntled over government insiders apparently influencing editorial decisions.

Political observers in Caracas might have been forgiven for expecting Old Etonian Hanson, 54, with his Thatcherite family ties, to be unenthusiastic about Socialist Party President Nicolas Maduro, who succeeded Hugo Chavez in April last year.

During Mr Hanson’s partying years, he reportedly wowed Tom Cruise and other attendees at one of George Clooney’s New York birthday bashes with his “feverish dancing skills” before loudly exclaiming: “I love America! This is the place where things happen!” Not the sort of sentiments to go down well with supporters of the Chavez legacy in Venezuela.

But despite anticipation that the paper would lurch rightwards, the Socialist Party’s former elections adviser Hector Davila has been appointed to the senior role of President-Editor.

And whereas Ultimas Noticias had a history of investigative journalism in exposing features of the Chavez regime, now reporting staff complain that the ruling party exerts editorial control.

One of the reporters, José Rafael Mata, tweeted what he said was a picture of a handwritten note ordering a story to be pulled from the paper’s website because it detailed a former minister’s complaints about the Socialist Party stifling internal dissent. Mr Mata cited the episode as one of the reasons he felt compelled to leave the paper.

However, Mr Davila, a computer scientist, told Reuters that Ultimas Noticias had not abandoned its willingness to criticise the government. “If you’re looking for complaints about the government, pick any edition of the paper and you’ll have [as many as you want],” he said, citing critical stories on problems ranging from decay of public hospitals to corruption by state-backed community groups.

He also said the only instructions he received from the paper’s British owner were merely to run a balanced and profitable newspaper.

Mr Hanson’s father was famous for his close relationships with politicians, including the disgraced Tory MP Neil Hamilton. He set up Hanson PLC in 1964 and built it up by buying under-preforming assets and turning them around. Hanson bought a succession of high-street names, including John Collyer and Allders department stores, before making his most famous acquisition: Imperial Tobacco Group, bought for £2.5bn in 1986.

Lord Hanson was a founder of the anti-European Business for Sterling group and a member of the Bruges Group, which seeks to reduce the influence of Brussels. It is a very different philosophy from that of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela, founded in 2007 by Chavez, with whom Thatcher’s old political adversary Ken Livingstone struck up a rapport – and an oil deal – when Mayor of London.

Nov 29, 1987
IN AUGUST OF 1985, SIR GORDON AND LORD HANSON WERE BEING driven to London’s Heathrow Airport for the Concorde to New York. Sir Gordon had just returned from a vacation in the Mediterranean aboard his 176-foot yacht, which serves as a floating office; Lord Hanson was on his way to his house in Palm Springs, where he stays about three months of the year. In the car, Sir Gordon mentioned in passing that he had scheduled a meeting with Robert S. Pirie, president of Rothschild Inc. in New York, to talk about a run at SCM, the old Smith-Corona company. There was no further discussion of the matter, Lord Hanson says, because corporate raids are Sir Gordon’s turf: ”He’s the one with the gift for takeovers.”
He made a lunch appointment with Kidde chairman Fred R. Sullivan on July 6 at the office of Rothschild Inc., Hanson’s sometime investment banker. Over foie gras, Sir Gordon tried to pre-empt the auction and, when that didn’t work, he proceeded to outbid Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts & Company, the leveraged buyout specialists; by the end of October, he had gained control of Kidde.
Lord Hanson keeps a finger on British operations and serves as company front man. A confidant of Prime Minister Thatcher, who made him a peer in 1983, seven years after he had been knighted by the former P.M., Harold Wilson
By the late 60’s, Hanson’s and White’s names were showing up on the business as well as the society pages. At night they were at the gaming clubs with James D. Slater, the high-flying head of Slater, Walker Securities Ltd., a multimillion-dollar conglomerate. By day, they were among the most successful of the ”Slater Boys,” expanding steadily by buying industrial companies with stock. When the London market collapsed in 1973, Slater’s stock empire collapsed, too.
London Brick has since become one of Hanson’s most profitable units: It happens to be the sole British manufacturer of fletton bricks, which are used for British public housinga priority of the Thatcher administration.

 Liberal Party leader David Steel commented, ”Anyone disposed to cause mischief might be tempted to suggest that the Hanson bid was given the all clear as a ‘thank you’ for Lord Hanson’s role in the Westland affair.”

In January 1986, Westland, a faltering British helicopter company, was the object of rival bids. After disclosures that the Government had sought to influence the sale in favor of the Sikorsky division of United Technologies, two cabinet officers resigned and Mrs. Thatcher’s political future was threatened.
Hanson Trust swept in, bought 15 percent of Westland’s stock for $14.5 million – $1.4 million above market price – and announced that it, too, favored a merger with United Technologies. That was that. (On a more formal level, Hanson Trust has been making annual contributions to the Conservative Party of more than $85,000.)

Westland: Armstrong minute for Wicks (Lord Hanson’s position) [MT would wish to see Hanson letter to Wyatt] [declassified Feb 2016]

LIKE LORD HANSON, SIR Gordon is a Thatcher supporter, but he is less visible on Downing Street. He is, however, gradually raising his profile in the United States.
Sir Gordon received the Congressional Medal of Honor in 1984 as a result of his fund-raising for the Congressional Awards, a series of achievement medals for teen-agers. And Hanson Industries is a sponsor of the ”Wall Street Week” television show, although Sir James Murray, Hanson’s United States consultant on politics and public affairs, winces when he mentions the $1 million-a-year price tag.

 

Lord Hanson was unafraid of accusations of nepotism, appointing his Eton and Oxford-educated, polo-playing son Robert to the industrial conglomerate’s board in 1992 at the age of 31. The appointment, after years of speculation about the group’s succession, sent Hanson’s shares into reverse.

Lord Hanson also gave a board position to his niece’s husband, Christopher Collins. Robert, whose previous career included a spell at the merchant bank NM Rothschild, was put in charge of Hanson’s search for expansion opportunities in the Far East. In 1995, he became corporate development director, replacing Mr Collins who moved up to become vice-chairman. He remains in the same post at the Hanson rump following the recent demerger.

MEAGDEALER FOR THE ROTHSCHILDS

1988

Lord Hanson and Robert Maxwell

http://www.nytimes.com/1988/12/04/magazine/meagdealer-for-the-rothschilds.html?pagewanted=all

James Hanson first served as a Territorial with the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment at Halifax, he was called up in 1939, and commissioned in the Royal Army Service Corps. For a time he was an announcer on Forces radio. Demobbed in 1946, he joined his father’s company.

James Hanson was knighted in 1976, in the notorious honours list compiled for Harold Wilson by his secretary Marcia Williams (later Lady Falkender) on lavender notepaper.

His support for her preferred rescue plan for Westland Helicopters cost his company some £6 million. Mrs Thatcher returned the admiration, citing Hanson’s American interests as a model of what British companies could achieve abroad. He was created a peer in 1983.

When in London, Lord Hanson worked long hours in his relatively austere headquarters overlooking the gardens of Buckingham Palace. But later he would spend several months of each year at a second home in Palm Springs, California, whence he continued to run his empire from a poolside telephone.

He enjoyed the trappings of great wealth – his Bentley carried the numberplate JH 1 – and occasionally moved in celebrity social circles, hosting parties for Frank Sinatra and giving the Duchess of York helicopter-flying lessons as a wedding present. But he also placed a high value on family life and privacy.

A Ruthless Operator

With charm, good looks and fearsome entrepreneurial rigour, Lord Hanson was both loved and loathed by many, but rarely ignored.

He regularly drank whisky with Lady Thatcher, with whom he shared a strong mutual admiration, was once engaged to Audrey Hepburn and supported the disgraced MP, Neil Hamilton.

With an estimated personal fortune of £50 million, Lord Hanson was used to attracting attention and controversy. He was a swashbuckling entrepreneur who built up a £6 billion empire and a reputation as a ruthless asset-stripper. He was knighted by Harold Wilson in 1976 and made a life peer in 1983.

The business which bears his name, which he formed in 1965 with Lord White, reached the height of its success in the 1980s and became a symbol for British boom.

Lord Hanson was one of the largest Conservative Party donors during Thatcher’s leadership and an outspoken Eurosceptic. He was a founding member of the anti-EU organisation Business for Britain and a member of the Eurosceptic thinktank, the Bruges Group.

Known for his fastidious attention to his appearance, he was a striking figure, at 6ft 4ins, and both his dress and his office conveyed an old-fashioned grandeur. A fan of controversial causes, he notably supported the disgraced Conservative MP Neil Hamilton, who lost his libel case against Mohamed Fayed and The Guardian over “cash for questions” allegations.

For three decades, Hanson plc was one the most feared corporate predators in London and New York, taking in chemicals, energy, tobacco and much else.

Keen on quoting Napoleon, Lord Hanson used one of his hero’s sayings, “Circumstances? What are circumstances? I make my circumstances” as a business motto. He once explained his allegiances by saying: “Always be nice to bankers. Always be nice to pension fund managers. Always be nice to the media. In that order.”

As a young man, Hanson had a reputation as a playboy and was one of the founding members of the exclusive nightclub Annabelle’s.

 

He met Audrey Hepburn at a reception when he was 28 and they dated for two years before she cancelled their wedding in 1952.

He recently said of the broken engagement: “It was a strange situation. My mother had got the 50 chickens ready for the wedding reception and we had all the presents, but the fact was Audrey just did not want to get married at the time.”

In 1959 he married the former model Geraldine Kaelin, an American divorcee. She died of leukaemia in February at the age of 75 after 45 years of marriage.

The couple had a son Robert, now 43, and adopted a son, Brook, now 40. Lady Hanson previously had a daughter, Karyn. They had homes in Palm Springs, California, and Knightsbridge, west London.

James Hanson was born in Huddersfield, the son of a haulier, Robert Hanson. In his youth he served in the Second World War.

Lord Hanson retired as chairman of Hanson Turst in 1997 at the age of 75. Two weeks ago he suffered a fall at his home and had to cancel a lecture and lunch in Leeds.

Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, threw a party in 1972 that was so different; it still inspires the dark theory that behind the doors of their mansions, the ultra rich are occultists engaged in unspeakable acts of Evil.

Marie-Hélène’s  “Surrealists Ball” was held on December 12, 1972, and its combination of opulence and elaborate, odd imagery is said to have inspired the ritual orgy scenes of Kubrick’s EYES WIDE SHUT.

One of the party’s attendees, aristocrat and banker Alexis von Rosenberg, documented the party, and conspiracy theorists maintain that his photos and descriptions are hard evidence of the occult customs of the top levels of the Illuminati.

1972 Rothschild Illuminati Ball

The Baroness Hanson, wife of the City legend and corporate raider, the Baron Hanson, died 22 February, 2004, in hospital in Los Angeles. She had been suffering from leukaemia.

Lady Hanson had been the wife of the life peer since 1959. The former Geraldine Kaelin, daughter of Mrs S. Kaelin, of East 76th Street, New York, she was a slightly-built, dark haired American divorcee when she met the then James Hanson in the late 1950s.

The swashbuckling playboy millionaire had been engaged in the fifties (for 354 days) to Audrey Hepburn, and had courted the actress Jean Simmons. Geraldine Kaelin bore more than a passing resemblance to Miss Hepburn.

She married – aged 25- the Yorkshire-born James Hanson, then 36, at Upper Agbrigg Register Office, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, on 17 January, 1959.

She was the mother of two sons, Robert and Brook, and had a daughter Karyn from a previous marriage. (Karyn took the surname Hanson and was married 20 years ago to C. Cheever Hardwick III, of New York.)

Lady Hanson was _a small, elegant woman who dressed in Chanel or
Valentino when she was being casual. She was a private person with a charming public warmth. Most of her time was devoted to her family and running their homes in London, Berkshire, Florida and California_.

The Today newspaper in 1991 said that at Lady Hanson’s dinner parties the food was served by numerous servants and the grub was devoured with gold-plated cutlery.

Her husband was knighted in 1976 (in Harold Wilson’s infamous
resignation honours) and raised to a life barony in 1983.

The funeral service takes place at St Margaret’s Church, Palm Desert, California, Thursday 4 March, 2004.

Why was that comment removed about Lady Hanson being a drunk and jealous of Lord Hanson’s “ladies”?

John GlenJan 19, 2009

I think you want to get your facts right!! There never was a home in the South of France they always stayed at the hotel du Cap. The House in Palm Springs was Norwood West. Fifi was Fiona and a great friend of both Lord and lady Hanson. Lady Hanson liked a glass of wine but was not, not an alcoholic. Robert is the natural son of Lord and Lady Hanson, it is Brook who was adopted and Lady Hanson`s daughter is called Karen. Lady Hanson always spoke with a gentle American accent and I never saw Gregory Peck. I was Lord and Lady Hanson`s butler and personal chef for 15 years.

James Hanson married Geraldine, and they are now both deceased. They had homes in the South of France, Palm Springs (Las Palmas Area), and in the UK (Kimber Cottage). FiFi was a young lady, similar in looks to Audrey Hepburn, whom was a “friend” of the family”, though Lady Hanson did not care for her much at all! Geraldine suffered from alcoholism which she tried to keep hush. They have one adopted son “Robert” and his half-brother “Brook”, and “Susan” if I recall, was Geraldine`s daughter`s name. Geraldine was born in New Jersey, but spoke with a british accent! The Hanson`s had celebrity friends, including Margaret Thatcher, Gregory Peck, Frank Sinatra, Sydney Sheldon, and Kirk Douglas.

Tory baron’s mistress reveals all

The late industrialist, one of the largest Tory party donors during the Margaret Thatcher years and whose marriage to American divorcee Geraldine Kaelin lasted 45 years, enjoyed a clandestine affair with Seventies pin-up Francoise Pascal.

Now almost 40 years after their liaison, the Mind Your Language actress, whose other lovers include actors Warren Beatty and Sir Michael Caine, speaks out about their trysts for the first time in her forthcoming memoirs, As I Am.

Lord (James) Hanson, who died in 2004 aged 82, met Mauritius-born Francoise when she was 22 at a dinner party she attended as David Niven Junior’s date.

Hanson, who was once engaged to Audrey Hepburn, slipped her his contact details, but it was not until their second encounter at Francoise’s flat that the pair consummated their bond.

‘James was always very cautious how he ate. I guess he needed to have some room for his dinner with Lady Hanson.

After the affair ended, Francoise adds: ‘We kept in touch for a while but he had to be careful because of his political career, his business and his wife.’

Lord Hanson's eligible son Robert is engaged to Masha Markova, a Russian former model

Society shock as Lord Hanson’s eligible son Robert finally settles down

It is an announcement that London society had almost given up hope of hearing: Robert Hanson, the 49-year-old son and heir of the late Lord Hanson, is to marry.

Lord Hanson’s eligible son Robert is engaged to Masha Markova, a Russian former model

Mandrake can disclose that the seemingly perennial bachelor is engaged to Masha Markova, a Russian former model 25 years his junior.

Hanson, whose industrialist father was a close ally of Margaret Thatcher, numbers Martine McCutcheon, the former EastEnders actress, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson (also listed in Jeffrey Epstein’s black book), the televison presenter, and Sophie Anderton, the model, among his previous girlfriends. Although Masha may be young enough to be his daughter, she is no ingénue.

Two years ago, she declared publicly that she planned to sue Lindsay Lohan, the hard-living Hollywood actress, after the reported loss of a £5,000 mink coat. Masha, who was still a student, said she would take the legal action against the 23-year-old star of Mean Girls after her coat, which was a gift from her grandmother, disappeared during a party the pair attended at the 10ak nightclub in New York.

Masha’s lawyer alleged that Lohan was later pictured wearing the coat and, when it was finally returned, Markova complained that it smelled of “cigarettes and liquor”. The New York state court filing added that Lohan’s actions were “intentional, oppressive and malicious and carried out with reckless disregard”. Lohan settled out of court.

Hanson’s father, incidentally, was once engaged to Audrey Hepburn. The wedding, planned for 1952, was postponed and then cancelled, amicably, after work on her film Roman Holiday overran.

Peter Pan of Posh

The ‘playboy’ eldest son of industrialist Lord Hanson,  is famed for his fondness of life in the fast lane and was, until recently, a seemingly permanent fixture on the London party circuit and a regular at society and royal events.

His own parties are legendary.

Texan model and heiress Normandie Keith now married to Hanson’s best friend Lucas White is an old flame, as is It-Girl Tara Palmer Tomkinson. He was briefly engaged to the troubled underwear model Sophie Anderton and dated Lord Halpern’s daughter Jenny, and Lord Baybrooke’s daughter Cazzy, now the Countess of Derby.

His more unusual past amours include former EastEnders actress Martine McCutcheon, native American model Brenda Schad and Waffa Bin Laden, would-be pop diva and niece of Osama.

This year, the 44-year-old was seen squiring stunning blonde and wealthy Russian socialite Victoria Smirnoff, his guest at the Grand Prix in Monaco, Chicago-born model Kat Mack and, more recently, actress Anouska de Georgiou, 26, daughter of a multimillionaire financier.

Quite the womaniser, then, is Robert Hanson. Yet as he grew older and the girlfriends grew younger, friends nicknamed him ‘The Peter Pan of Posh’ because of his apparent refusal to grow up something which reportedly drove his exasperated parents at times to despair of him.

But now, with the death of his father from cancer at the age of 82, there has been a profound shift in Robert’s gilded life and not only because he has become even richer.

He, his adopted brother Brook, 40, and half- sister Karyn, 50 his mother’s daughter from her first marriage who were all at Lord Hanson’s side when he died at his mansion near Newbury in Berkshire on Monday, are expected to share an estate worth close to [pounds sterling]50 million.

Lord Hanson’s [pounds sterling]4 million winter mansion in Palm Springs, California, the Mail can reveal, is already technically owned by Robert, presumably to avoid inheritance taxes, and there are also homes in Berkshire and Knightsbridge which form part of the estate.

However, the question being whispered among his circle is: will he carry on being the ultimate ladies’ man merely richer and even more spoilt for choice or will the loss of both his parents in the space of just eight months force him to grow up?

One of Lord Hanson’s friends in California, Dr Frank Ercoli,

Robert used to run with a Brit pack of party animals, including actress Liz Hurley, and socialised with Princess Diana’s lover Dodi Fayed

In 1959, he married American divorcee Geraldine Kaelin, a part-time model who was working as a buyer at a New York department store and struggling to bring up her five-year-old daughter Karyn. Robert was born the following year. In 1964, they adopted a second son Brook.

And what of Robert’s current on/off girlfriend, actress Anouska de Georgiou, whose bedroom scene in the new film Alfie is the talk of the town? She was discovered as a model aged 17 while at a party at Robert Hanson’s home

June 13, 2005

Seven months after his death at the age of 82, Hanson’s son Robert hopes to enshrine the peer’s memory by closely overseeing a biography of his late father.

‘By supervising an authorised book about his father, he is rather hoping it will dissuade any muckrakers intent on digging up scandal from doing likewise.’

According to friends, Old Etonian Robert, 44, who inherited his father’s playboy style, is preparing to pay an American writer who knew his father to pen the biography.

‘Robert will then hawk it around publishers because he is keen not to have any interference,’ I am told. ‘This way he can ensure there are no negative bits in the book.’ I understand that interviews with many of Lord Hanson’s friends, including Lady Thatcher with whom he shared late night glasses of whisky and former British Airways chief Lord King, are now being planned.

A spokesman for Robert confirmed that the biography is on the cards. 

Hanson Brought to Book

Daily Mail (London), June 13, 2005

Lord Hanson, a close friend of Lord King

From Russia with Love: A Mystery Tour

Daily Mail (London), September 20, 2005

HE IS a young man whose playboy image has always been fuelled by his own fortune. So it was no surprise when a legion of his many friends were whisked away on a glossy mystery tour.

The 45th birthday that Robert Hanson was marking was hardly a milestone, but as they boarded a private jet at Luton Airport at the weekend, his 90 guests who included the Hollywood star Val Kilmer and singer Dannii Minogue knew that he has long been a generous host.

They were flown to the Black Sea resort of Alushta in the Ukraine, where an armed police escort was on hand to ensure their two days of celebrating could not be interrupted by anything so mundane as a traffic jam. Once settled in their comfortable hotels, the guests were entertained by an army band, musicians from the famous Bolshoi Theatre and Cossack dancers.

Curiously, what many of Hanson’s guests did not know was that the real host of the weekend was someone else. In fact, the party was financed by a former KGB agent who has become fabulously wealthy in the new Russia and who accommodated the group in his own hotel.

He is Alexander Lebedev, the forty something son of a university professor, who now owns the Russian National Reserve Bank and 30 per cent of the former state airline, Aeroflot.

So just why would Robert Hanson accept so much hospitality? ‘He certainly found it quite amusing that the Russians were so deferential to him,’ a friend tells me.

Actress and model Lisa B wife of property tycoon Anton Bilton who was among the revellers, says: ‘I am exhausted. It was a fantastic weekend.

We stayed at a fabulous hotel and we had a great time.’ Other guests included Lucas White, the son of Lord Hanson’s business partner, Lord White; the Duke of Marlborough’s son, Edward Spencer-Churchill; hotelier Sir Rocco Forte; and party animals Tim Jeffries and Nicky Haslam.

Robert Hanson has a five-month-old son called Max.
The family’s haulage firm, founded in Huddersfield 170 years ago by Mr Hanson’s great-great-great grandmother, Mary, was nationalised in 1948.

In January, Mr Hanson returned to his Huddersfield roots to launch a new business venture with storage specialist pH Europe offering specialist plastic crates, boxes and pallets to small and medium-sized businesses.

“It fits into the international story of where we’re going,” Mr Hanson says. “A few years ago, we, as a company, decided to become more international and because my brother and I lived for six years in Hong Kong…we picked China as the place we wanted to expand.” Asia is a huge focus for Mr Hanson who is in the process of buying a Chinese speciality chemicals business, Sinojie Hanson, of which his company currently owns 42 per cent. He is also looking to build a logistics business in China by setting up another joint venture. “The British economy can’t compete and I don’t want to just sit here and try and find customers, I actually want to have businesses and develop them,” Mr Hanson says. “Quite a lot of my time is spent in Asia setting things up and then I leave it to other people to run.” Hanson Family Holdings also includes a group of financial services companies. In 1998 Mr Hanson founded Hanson Capital to capitalise on his worldwide network of close relationships with high net worth individuals. In 2006 Hanson Westhouse was formed by linking Hanson Capital and Westhouse Securities but Mr Hanson switched his allegiance in 2009, selling his 20 per cent stake in Westhouse to form a joint venture investment bank with Strand Partners called Strand Hanson. Mr Hanson says his group of companies has weathered the recession well due to their diversity. He made an early decision in 2008 to sell the delivery business, Home Delivery Network. “We couldn’t figure out whether it was going to be a stupid decision or a brave decision but we sold that business and cut our business in two. It proved very successful,” he says. As a result, Mr Hanson says the businesses avoided making redundancies and instead concentrated on reducing costs, mainly those associated with the Home Delivery Network operation. Now he is looking to build up his portfolio by buying other companies in the chemicals, packaging, logistics or freight forwarding sectors, which will complement the existing businesses.

He grew up in Huddersfield until the age of five when the family, including his brother, Brook, and sister, Karyn, moved to Berkshire.

Mr Hanson was sent to boarding school from the age of eight and was educated at Eton followed by St Peter’s College, Oxford. After graduating he became a banker at N M Rothschild & Sons where he worked initially in London and later at its subsidiaries in Hong Kong, Chile and Spain. In 1990, he joined the family firm becoming a main board director in 1992 responsible for strategy, mergers, acquisitions and disposals. However, he was involved in one of the group’s most high profile mistakes with the attempted takeover of chemical group ICI in 1990 when it bought a 2.8 per cent stake in the firm. Although a formal bid was never made, ICI launched a desperate defence, which severely dented the Hanson empire his father had built.

Mr Hanson resigned from the public company at the end of 1997, after his father broke up the business, to chair Hanson Transport Group, now Hanson Family Holdings.

Hanson House Foundation

Hanson House is a “home away from home” for the loved ones of critically ill and injured hospitalized patients. We also serve the needs of cancer patients receiving chemotherapy and radiation treatment, parents of newborn babies critically ill in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), military families from the Marine base at Twenty Nine Palms and all families of First Responders. Our services are provided at low or no cost. No one is turned away because of an inability to pay.

Frank R. Ercoli, M.D., FACS, Medical Director of Trauma and Critical Care Services at Desert Regional Medical Center conceived and developed the idea to create a place that provided comfort and care to the families of those patients being cared for in the intensive care units of local hospitals. Dr. Ercoli met project benefactor Lord James Hanson, a British industrialist and part-time resident of Palm Springs. Lord Hanson made a very generous seed donation to start the fund for the facility that is now named for him.

Shock death of tycoon Lord Hanson’s adopted son in Belgravia bar

When he was adopted as a child by Margaret Thatcher’s favourite businessman Lord Hanson, Brook Hanson entered a glamorous world where top-level business met high politics.

Sadly, the dashing blond previously seen as one of society’s most eligible bachelors has died suddenly of a suspected heart attack at his local pub in Belgravia, London, to the great shock of fellow regulars.

‘It is very sad,’ says one drinker who witnessed his death at the Duke of Wellington in Eaton Terrace. ‘Brook was a much-loved figure at the pub.’

The death of Brook, whose buccaneering father was once engaged to Audrey Hepburn, came a month after he turned 50 and the party he had hoped for failed to materialise.

Ten years ago, his 40th birthday celebrations were a lavish affair held at the London townhouse of his brother, Robert Hanson, 53, whose ex-girlfriends include former EastEnders actress Martine McCutcheon, It-girl Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and model Sophie Anderton.

Friends such as Lady Eloise Anson, daughter of the late royal photogapher Lord Lichfield, had toasted Brook with champagne and presented him with a camera-shaped cake to reflect his love of photography.

‘Brook had become increasingly disillusioned and reclusive after his on/off affair with an Italian socialite foundered,’ says a friend. ‘He had given up drinking and put on a lot of weight, while his hair turned grey.’

Despite the multi-million-pound fortune of Yorkshireman Lord ‘Moneybags’ Hanson, who died in 2004 within eight months of his wife Geraldine, Brook is said to have struggled to form genuine friendships.

 

His last dinner party in March ended in disaster when the ‘friend’ he had sent out to buy wine from the nearby Duke of Wellington absconded, pocketing the cash.

‘There was a very curious collection of people there, with whom I can’t imagine he had much in common,’ says one guest. ‘I got the impression he was not having fun.’

Since his parents’ deaths and Robert’s move to Los Angeles in 2010 following his marriage to Masha Markova, a Russian model 25 years his junior, there was no one close to offer support. Friends and family will gather for a memorial service at St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge next month.

“After leaving Pangbourne Brook wanted to join the Army but failed his Army Officer Selection Board. He went into banking and worked for Rothschilds Bank in Hong Kong for about six years before returning to London. Sometime after this he studied photography in London and became a professional photographer.Outside of work, Brook had a talent for learning languages and learnt Italian and Japanese and apparently could recite Haiku which is difficult for non Japanese. Ten years ago both his parents and sister passed away in a short space of time, which affected him deeply.”

Lady Hanson

GERALDINE Hanson, American wife of Huddersfield-born business tycoon Lord Hanson, died from leukaemia in a hospital in Los Angeles on February 22.

A memorial service will be held in London in June, led by the Hansons’ close friend, the Archbishop of York.

The couple had a son Robert, a daughter Karyn, and an adopted son, Brook.

Hanson once had a reputation as an international playboy, but his engagement to Audrey Hepburn in the 1950s fell apart over whether her career or marriage should come first. He met New Jerseyborn Geraldine on a U.S. business trip.

Hanson married Geraldine Kaelin, whom he met in New York, in 1959.

Lord Hanson, launched a withering attack on “destructive journalism” and accused tabloid and broadsheet newspapers alike of lurid disclosures of the private lives of even minor politicians and public figures.


“Of course he had critics, because he had strong political views. He was very much against the idea of nationalisation and one of Margaret Thatcher’s earliest supporters.”

Tory Party leader Michael Howard said Lord Hanson would be greatly missed.

Mr Howard said: “James Hanson will be remembered as one of the great British industrialists of recent times who played a leading role in the economic regeneration of Britain.”

While at Oxford, Robert Hanson was a member of the Assassins dining club, a riotous body of very rich young men.

Pigs’ heads on stakes and a burning map

Another party I went to was a lot smaller – and a lot darker.

It was hosted by the Assassins, another of these elite Oxford drinking societies.

We had to go meet in a park-and-ride on the outskirts of Oxford. We were given a map, which we had to use to drive to the location.

When we arrived the maps were taken from us by people dressed in robes and they performed a ceremonial burning of the map.

There were flaming torches at either side of the entrance gate and two stakes with pigs’ heads mounted on them. There were more stakes with pigs’ heads by the bar.

It sounds exotic but, in Oxford, the covered market has a stall which always has pigs’ heads for sale, so I presume they bought them there.

So, we drove in and parked up. It was at the top of a hill where there was similar music to the other party.

But they made much more of an effort to make it seem mysterious and cryptic. The members were wearing weird robes, looking like a cross between monks and Death.

Someone was wearing a long gown and the mask from the Scream film.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/night-piers-gaveston-society-elite-6486118

The Evening Standard reported  that the so-called Assassins club carried out some of Oxford University’s most debauched behaviour in the ’80s.

A court case in 1982 heard that 19 members of the club went to the Thatcher’s pub in Thame (above, now just The Thatch), where they went through 57 bottles of vintage wine and took part in such drinking games as “Drink if your public school cost less than £3,000 a year” and “Drink if your family name became double-barrelled during the last 100 years”.

Members were seen “vomiting and urinating in the garden, smashing plates on walls, and trying to burn tablecloths, causing £600 in damage.”

Robert Hanson, who was there, told the Standard: “I was there on the night, covered in pink blancmange. So I remember it well.”

Ex-archbishop of York quits church position over report into alleged abuse

Lord Hope steps down from role following finding of ‘systemic failures’ by the Church of England over child abuse allegations
 
Robert Waddington report
David Hope, the former archbishop of York, has resigned from his position as an honorary assistant bishop after a report into into allegations of abuse.

Lord Hope of Thornes failed to follow policy and take advice after he was informed of complaints against Robert Waddington relating to boys in Manchester and Australia.

Lord Hope has always denied suggestions that he covered up allegations.

The report detailed a range of allegations against Waddington that were first made to the C of E in 1999 but dated back as far as the 1950s.

Those who made allegations described abuse in Manchester, York, London, Carlisle and in Queensland, Australia

Rev.Robert M Waddington, Dean of Manchester

Mr Ward said he came from a poor background in Salford and joined the cathedral choir in Manchester at the age of seven.

Four years later Dean Waddington, a former headmaster and then the most senior education official working for the Church’s parliament, the General Synod, arrived in the city.

He said the Dean showed him special favour, helping him with his homework, picking him up in his car to take him to choir practice, asking him out to tea and taking him for days out. He asked Mr Ward’s mother if the boy could stay with him overnight.

The room in which the boy slept had a large poster of a horrifying painting by 16th century artist Hieronymus Bosch, which gave him nightmares.

Mr Ward said: ‘He turned round to me one day and said, “Would you rather stay in my room? Is that painting too scary for you?” and of course I said yes.’

Mr Ward began sleeping in the Dean’s bed.

Mr Ward said that he was told by the Dean that if questioned by the Press he should lie about what was going on.

After a senior cathedral official did begin to inquire about the relationship, the Dean told Mr Ward to quit the choir in 1989 and he did so.

Mr Waddington was ordained Deacon in 1953, and began his career as curate at St John’s in Bethnal Green from 1953 to 1956. Afterwards he was Chaplain at Slade School in Warwick, Queensland, Australia from 1956 to 1959.

After 18 months as curate of St Luke’s Chesterton, in the Ely Diocese, he returned to Australia to become headmaster of St. Barnabas School, Ravenshoe, where he remained until 1971.

On returning to England he became a Canon Residentiary at Carlisle Cathedral and Bishop’s Adviser for Education 1972 to 1977, then General Secretary of the Church of England’s General Synod Board of Education and General Secretary of the National Society from 1977 to 1984 until becoming Dean of Manchester Cathedral in 1984.

 Robert Waddington’s cycle of abuse stretches beyond 50 years

Inscription
Inscription in a book given to Ray Munn
THE Church of England banished serial pedophile priest Robert Waddington to Australia, where he abused children across a decade, after suspicions were raised about him molesting choirboys in his London parish.

In an alleged church cover-up spanning almost 60 years, Waddington was suddenly and unexpectedly sent to a small school in regional Queensland in 1956 amid claims he was molesting the son of an English politician.

Last month the Church of England ordered an independent inquiry into the handling of allegations against Waddington, after a joint investigation by The Australian and The Times of London.

But it can now be revealed that Waddington – who died in 2007, facing allegations he abused students in Australia in the 1960s and English choirboys in the 80s and 90s – was molesting children as soon as he joined the church in 1953. The latest allegations have been made by Ray Munn, 70, who was recruited by Waddington, then a curate at St John’s church in Bethnal Green, East London, to sing in the choir in 1953.

He was almost immediately groomed by the Cambridge University-educated clergyman, who took him on holidays in the English countryside, before he began molesting the then 11-year-old.

Hope was enthroned at York Minster on 8 December 1995.  After Peter Tatchell alleged in the same year that Hope was gay as part of a much criticised OutRage! “outing” campaign,[9][10]

Hope said that his sexuality is “a grey area” and that he had “sought to lead a celibate life” and is “perfectly happy and content”.[citation needed]

On 26 October 1995 he was appointed a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO),[11] an honour in the personal gift of the Queen.

Convinced of the Bishop’s homosexuality – largely because Dr Hope had been head of a notoriously gay seminary – Tatchell delivered by hand what he still claims was intended to be a private letter. It urged the bishop to be true to what OutRage! believed to be his nature and, by admitting his sexuality, help to convince the church that it was an honourable estate.

The letter, he insists, contained no threat of exposure, but was just a plea for help and understanding. “But a journalist went to see Hope and told him that we were going to out him. So he called a press conference and talked about his sexuality being a grey area.” Dr Hope, now Archbishop of York, upstaged Tatchell and his would-be tormentor clearly resents it. “The letter was intended to be private and he gave it to the press without the courtesy of letting me know.”

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2000/feb/12/gayrights.books

In April 2013, it was reported that in 1999 and 2003, Hope had been made aware of allegations of child sexual abuse against a former Dean of Manchester, Robert Waddington.

Hope removed Waddington’s right to officiate at services but did not refer Waddington to the authorities.[17]

Following the 2014 report of the Cahill Inquiry, Hope resigned his post as honorary assistant bishop in the Diocese of Leeds on 27 October 2014.[18] He retired from the House of Lords on 30 April 2015.[19]

Lord James Hanson becoming a transatlantic commuter when the family decided to branch out into Canada – later he loved travelling on Concorde for his frequent trips across the Atlantic.

With his brother Bill, he launched a transport business in Canada and later formed Jet Petroleum. This was sold to Conoco in the 1950s for £12.5m.

More significantly, the good times were facilitated by Gordon White, a fellow “playboy businessman” who had been a close friend of Bill Hanson during the war. White had a cavalier attitude to life: more interested in having fun than building a business, and possessing the panache which Hanson lacked, and setting himself up as a Hollywood impresario in the early 1950s. White became a surrogate brother to the bereaved James, and was eventually the brains of the Hanson takeover machine.

The pair first ventured into business together in the late 1950s, using their American connections to import greeting cards. But their entry into serious business, and the world of takeovers, came through White’s connection to Jim Slater, the accountant turned stock market whizz kid who introduced them to the potential in public company shares.

In 1960, Hanson left the family haulage business in his father’s hands, to concentrate on building his own empire. He occasionally had other interests, such as backing Yorkshire Television and was its non-executive chairman for a couple of years in the early 1970s. But he and White concentrated on emulating Slater’s takeover techniques, building up a public company through acquisitions and disposals.

Unlike Slater, they survived the British slump in the early 1970s, but the “quantum leap” which Hanson had promised shareholders did not come until 1979. That coincided with the beginning of the Thatcher era, which saw a return to unbridled capitalism and a new respect for businessmen such as Hanson and White, who were not afraid to take on trade unions and break up established companies in pursuit of profit.

From 1979 to 1986, Hanson Trust rampaged through stock markets on both sides of the Atlantic, acquiring a string of ever-larger companies, often in bitterly fought takeover battles masterminded by White but fronted by Hanson. In private, he had a fierce temper, but he could be immensely charming, and used that on City contacts as well as the senior financial journalists who could influence City opinion.

Guided by Mrs Thatcher’s favourite public relations guru, Sir Tim (now Lord) Bell*, he was a master of PR, using his growing notoriety in financial circles to provide material to favoured journalists, while rationing his own public appearances. There were defeats, but these were overshadowed by successes in the United States and Britain – such as the Ever Ready company Berec, the retail group UDS, and finally Imperial Group, a conglomerate whose businesses included hotels, the Courage brewery and Golden Wonder crisps.

The Imperial takeover was then the largest ever seen in Britain – almost £2bn – but it was also the most bitter. The battle was conducted in public, through full-page newspaper ads, but also behind the scenes using private investigators who, unsuccessfully, tried to prove allegations of criminal activities in Hanson’s US businesses.

Hanson narrowly won the battle, but was beginning to lose the war. Some of the mud flung by Imperial and other targets was beginning to stick. The Times newspaper awarded him the title Capitalist Of The Year for 1986, but focused on a controversial attempt to take £70m from the Courage pension fund. “This displayed the true lack of sentiment of the pure capitalist”, it said. Critics also attacked a quadrupling of his own salary to £1.3m in 1987, while the City was wondering how the takeover juggernaut could keep rolling, and was increasingly looking for a succession strategy as Hanson and White moved past normal retirement age.

The pair had no intention of standing down, but attempts to continue the proven formula were becoming more difficult. In November 1990 Thatcher was ousted as prime minister, seriously weakening Hanson’s political support. And in the following year that loss proved fatal in what was intended to be the ultimate takeover, but proved to be the beginning of the end.

This time the target was not an anonymous conglomerate, but ICI, the chemical group which had been a symbol of British industry for decades. Success would perhaps have created Imperial Hanson Industries and brought the respectability in the business establishment that Hanson never quite achieved. But the group was symbolic of Britain’s manufacturing and research base, while Hanson was symbolic of financial wheeler-dealing. More to the point, perhaps, ICI had plants and offices all over Britain, which made it a highly political issue for the many MPs whose constituents might be affected – including several in marginal Tory seats. ICI’s defence directly targeted Hanson and White and the way they ran their empire. It unearthed the astonishing facts that White was not on Hanson’s board, that the company owned three of White’s racehorses, and that the group had a string of companies in tax havens. Worse still, Hanson’s son Robert had been in charge of the battle, and had been shown to be naive. Hanson was forced to retreat without launching a formal takeover, with his reputation bruised and plans to hand over to his son shown to be wishful thinking.

He remained chairman of Hanson until 1997, when he finally retired from active business life. But those years saw the decline of the empire he had built, as the City turned against his style of wheeler-dealing and left no option but to break up what he and White had put together. Their legacy survives as Hanson Plc, a building products company that has grown from the group’s brick and aggregates business.

But the conglomerate approach finally came to be seen in the 1990s as primarily destructive, with the value coming from financial engineering rather than business acumen. Indeed, Hanson and White always remained aloof from the operating businesses. Hanson directed operations from his head office overlooking Hyde Park Corner in London, paying more attention to the state of his employees’ desks – he commanded that they be cleared every evening – their hair (he engaged a trichologist) and their cholesterol levels than to the state of his factories.

Hanson occasionally, very occasionally, re-entered the public arena in recent years: he gave his opinion on the Tory leadership race in 2001, and joined the anti-Euro campaign as a founder member of Business for Britain and a member of the Bruges Group.

Hanson’s wife died in February. He is survived by a stepdaughter and two sons.

The British ad men – the surreal world of the controversial Saatchi brothers, by LORD BELL

HOW MARGARET THATCHER STOPPED CHARLES SAATCHI SHAFTING ME

When I finally left Saatchi & Saatchi, the brothers didn’t want me anywhere near the Conservative Party account. But everyone had reckoned without Margaret Thatcher, then Prime Minister, who said that they’d become too ‘gimmicky’ and negative.

I brought in my new agency, Lowe Howard-Spink & Bell. We came up with a dozen or so examples of what the Government was doing well and added the line: ‘Life’s better with the Conservatives. Don’t let Labour ruin it.’ Margaret took one look and immediately said: ‘That’s it! At last.’

Charles Saatchi wanted revenge. So they mounted an all-out attack. Rumours started about my private life. Then they launched what’s known as a bear raid on the share price of my new agency — which caused £12 million to be wiped off our share price on one Wednesday alone. Shortly afterwards, Margaret rang me at home and said: ‘I understand that those brothers are trying to damage your company. Tell me what I can do to help.’

I replied: ‘Margaret, please don’t. You’ve got a f***ing country to run. I’m perfectly capable of looking after myself.’

She said: ‘I know. But all of us need our friends. I’ll speak to James Hanson.’

James Hanson: He helped Tim Bell at Mrs Thatcher's asking

James Hanson: He helped Tim Bell at Mrs Thatcher’s asking

Hanson, then one of Britain’s leading industrialists, was a strong Conservative supporter who had Saatchi & Saatchi working on his brands. The next thing I knew, I’d been summoned to a meeting in his office, to which Maurice and Charles had also been invited.

Maurice then rambled on about how much they hated me, adding that I was a disgusting person. To which Hanson told him: ‘If you don’t stop your activity, I am going to mount a bear raid to destroy your share price. In the meantime, I’m going to invest a quarter of a million pounds in Lowes in order to return their share price to the correct level — and you will stop this nonsense.’

Thus my agency’s share price went back to where it had been before. Soon after, Margaret asked me round for a drink at Downing Street. ‘I believe James has sorted it out,’ she said.

I said: ‘Yes, it’s absolutely fine.’

She continued: ‘Those people (the Saatchis) are not the kind you can do business with.

‘I understand they want to buy the Midland Bank. Well, I’ve spoken to the Governor [of the Bank of England] and they won’t.’

And sure enough, the bid was killed.

Holly Hamill, his personal assistant for over 30 years, said that Lord Hanson died peacefully at his cottage near Newbury, Berkshire, with his son Robert at his side yesterday afternoon.
Lord White and Lord Hanson were a winning partnership. Hanson was knighted in 1976 – in Harold Wilson’s famous “lavender list” – and created a life peer by Margaret Thatcher in 1983.
Martin Taylor,  worked for the peer between 1969 and 1995, latterly as vice-chairman of Hanson plc.
Derek Rosling, Lord Hanson’s other vice-chairman, who worked for him from 1964 to 1997, paid tribute to him, rating him as one of Britain’s “best businessmen of the last 50 years”, ahead of the modern business heroes such as Sir Richard Branson.

James Edward Hanson Joins USC Board of Trustees

June 3, 2002

James Edward Hanson – retired chairman of global conglomerate Hanson PLC and a member of the British House of Lords – has been named an honorary trustee of the University of Southern California.

Hanson built his company, originally the Oswald Tillotson Ltd., into an international presence with interests in areas including gas, electricity and vehicle distribution, coal mining and building materials. He retired in 1997.

“We are pleased and honored to have Lord Hanson with us on our board of trustees,” said USC President Steven B. Sample. “He’s a remarkable man.”

Hanson joined the British Army in 1939 at the age of 17 and left in 1946, holding the rank of acting major. He went to work for the family’s logistics company and managed its Canadian interests in Ontario from 1949 to 1963.

Hanson built Hanson PLC into one of the largest British-owned conglomerates through a partnership with the late Lord Gordon White, who died in 1995.

In 1995, Hanson PLC consolidated 34 of its companies in the United States, and the new company was named U.S. Industries Inc. Together with its subsidiaries, the corporation manufactured and marketed bath and plumbing products in North America under brand names such as Jacuzzi, Sundance Spas and Rainbow.

In 1996, the Hanson conglomerate started to divide its operations and created four separate public companies focused on chemicals (Millennium Chemicals), tobacco (Imperial Tobacco), energy (Energy Group PLC) and building materials and equipment (Hanson PLC).

When Hanson retired the following year, he became a lecturer and frequent contributor to newspapers and magazines.

He is a former director of Lloyds Bank and is currently a director of Hanson Capital Limited.

He was the founder of the London radio station Melody FM.

Breakfast presenter Bill Bingham (seated) with Melody Radio owner Lord Hanson on launch day. Later Melody FM presenters including David Hamilton – colleague and admirer of Sir Jimmy Savile:

Above everything else, Sir Jimmy Savile was a showman.

His death at home in Leeds at the age of 84 is a real loss because he had a massive impact on the music world.

We were colleagues together at Radio 1 when I joined in 1973. He had been at the station for five years by then and was enormously popular.

In late 1994 Hamilton presented the Breakfast show on Melody FM for four years

Hanson founded the Hanson Fellowship of Surgery at Oxford University and is a member of the Court of Patrons of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Through the Hanson White Foundation he founded with his former business partner, Hanson gave financial support to the Keck School of Medicine of USC in 1995 to support urology research programs and create the Hanson-White Chair in Medical Research.

Hanson’s various memberships cross a range of fields. He is an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists; a fellow of the National Cancer Research Campaign; a freeman of the city of London; and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Hanson holds honorary degrees from the University of Leeds and the University of Huddersfield.

Guess it helps to have had a rich dad with useful business connections…..

After changing hands three times in fairly quick succession over the past decade, the UK’s PremiAir Aircraft Engineering appears to be settling down and renewing its commitment to business aviation. In fact, it was recently appointed by Raytheon Aircraft as an authorized service center for the Premier I.

In November the company was reformed under its new name, after being acquired by Sir Robert McAlpine–the long-established British construction, property and wind energy group. Before this, the firm, which is based at Blackbushe Airport 35 miles southwest of London, had been owned in succession by the Hanson group, Lynton and BBA (encompassing Signature Aircraft Engineering’s Blackbushe and Denham operations). Combined hangar space at Blackbushe and Denham totals 43,000 sq ft, and these facilities are now being upgraded.

Blackbushe – they hold a massive Sunday market there. AIr Hanson had a hangar there, from memory, but re-branded to Premi-air a few years ago.

Part of the film “Rush”, by Ron Howard was filmed there, a film about the 1976 F1 season.

Incidentally, Blackbushe airport is also the home to British Car Auctions, who recently sold at least one of Jimmy Savile’s cars:

It was also home to a large pop festival in 1978, organised by Harvey Goldsmith.

This Corniche was originally supplied to Sir Jimmy Savile OBE in 1977 for the use of his mother, ‘The Duchess’.  However, the car was too large for her to drive personally and was soon returned to Jack Barkley of London.

Air Hanson, a small charter aircraft company

A FATHER and son died when a helicopter crashed in dense woodland near Crowthorne, Berkshire, yesterday. Another two children and a man were in hospital last night with serious injuries.

Lord Hanson, chairman of Hanson Trust, of which Air Hanson is a subsidiary, said last night that Capt Bates was ‘a highly experienced helicopter pilot’ who had worked for the company for many years.

Captain Colin Bates, Air Hanson’s chief pilot, 46, and his son, Nicholas, 12, were certified dead at the scene.

Nigel Whiteman, 33, Air Hanson’s chief engineer, suffered severe chest and abdominal injuries. He and Capt Bates’s other son, Christopher, 9, were taken to Frimley Park Hospital in Camberley, Surrey, where both were said to be in a serious but stable condition after surgery.

James Coulter, 12, a friend of the Bates family, suffered serious head injuries and multiple injuries and was taken by the London Ambulance helicopter to the London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London. His condition was said to be very serious.

The aircraft was en route from Newmarket, Suffolk, to Blackbushe airport, where Air Hanson is based. A spokesman for the company said that Capt Bates had taken the boys on a day out.

Lord Mandelson and former Tory MP Virginia Bottomley were both appointed to ancient ceremonial posts at a special ceremony at Hull’s Guildhall

Lord Mandelson has been officially appointed to the newly resurrected post of High Steward of Hull.

He follows in the footsteps of his grandfather, Labour foreign and home secretary Herbert Morrison, who was High Steward of Hull from 1956 to 1965.

In a ceremony at Hull’s Guildhall, Lord Mandelson vowed to serve the city to his “best judgement and ability”.

At the same ceremony, former Tory MP Virginia Bottomley was appointed to the rejuvenated role of Sheriff of Hull.

The Queen gave the city permission for the two ancient ceremonial posts to be reinstated after they were abolished in 1974.

Sir Hayden Phillips, an adviser to the Prince of Wales

Sir Hayden Phillips
interviewed by Malcolm McBain on 16 May 2011

PPS to Roy Jenkins

Good friends with Ted Heath defender, Robert Armstrong

I was very fortunate because Robert Armstrong became Permanent
Secretary to the Home Office whilst I was in Brussels and we had become friends. I talked to him about coming back and what I was going to do and when I came back Robert gave me, and I had no reason to expect this, possibly the best job I had ever had in my career, which was in charge of terrorism and riots. Fortunately, we had a great deal of both (laughs), and so I came back into an absolutely critical job, which also, particularly in relation to the te
rrorism angle, had wide international ramifications.

Over that issue, because it involved threats of terror and other things, I had to go and have meetings with Peter Carrington and Malcolm Rifkind, who was then the Minister of State at the
Foreign Office.

In 1992 I became Permanent Secretary for the first time at
what was then called the Department of National Heritage under John Major, whom I worked for in the Treasury when he was Chief Secretary. I did that for six years and then I went to look after the
Lord Chancellor, Lord Irvine of Lairg at what is now the
Ministry of Justice. So from 1992 to 1998 I was in Media, Culture, and Sport and then from 1998 to 2004 it was the Courts, the Law and Justice.

I remember Robin Butler who was then Cabinet Secretary, said to me, “you can’t stay at Culture and Sport forever, we must send you
somewhere else”. Various suggestions were made and I wasn’t sure I wanted to do any of them. Finally he said “I’ve got it!

We need someone to look after Lord Irvine  of Lairg and so go to the Lord Chancellor’s Department” to which I replied “You can’t do that, you have to be a lawyer”, which was true, and I wasn’t a lawyer. He
said “That’s all right. We are going to change the law”. So I got the job. It’s a very unusual anecdote this, nothing to do with international diplomacy, but I think I am the only permanent secretary who got his job as a result of primary legislation. They had
to put through a Bill in the House of Commons and the House of Lords saying that the Permanent Secretary of the Lord Chancellor’s Department could be an ordinary person. So that was me.

the BBC in connection with Culture, Media and Sport, I mean that largely fell within your remit didn’t it? That presumably would be the major part of the BBC, the home service …

MM: Is it your opinion that the BBC is a good organisation?
HP: Oh I think it’s an outstanding organisation

I admire Chris Patten very much

MM: Would you like to say anything about the Churchill Archives and their relationship with the Heritage Lottery Fund?

We set up the Heritage Lottery Fund out of the National Heritage Memorial Fund which was a tiny organisation. Jacob Rothschild became the chairman of the Heritage Lottery Fund – the three people most involved in this were Lord Rothschild, myself and Robin Butler the Secretary of the Cabinet. The first issue we confronted
was about the Churchill archives. They were going to be sold, distributed to the far flung corners of what is no longer the empi
re, the United States and countries like that. And we took the view that if we received an application, as we indeed did, to purchase the archives, we should do so in the national interest. It was so evident to us that this was the right thing to do, but what we hadn’t grasped was that it wasn’t at all evident to a large section of the British press or the British public, who firstly thought that the state already owned the Churchill archives and secondly were very resentful
of the idea that the first big slug of lottery money should appear to go to a single member of the Churchill family.

So what we thought was going to be a decision that would be applauded by the British public as a whole, turned out to be absolutely ghastly. I have had one similar experience of whatever the truth may be, the truth can be well out of kilter with what the British public thinks it ought to be. This was when Windsor castle burned down while I was in charge of royal palaces. Peter Brooke was my Secretary of State and we explained to the press when they asked who would have to pay for the damage, that Windsor castle was not owned by the Queen, it was owned by the nation and that the nation at the end of the day would have to foot the bill. I’m telling you this story because it is rather like the Churchill archives story.

Has the time come for super-smooth ex-Whitehall mandarin, Sir Hayden Phillips CB, KCB, GCB, to finally secure the peerage that cruelly eludes him? This week the favoured protege of Lord Jenkins – the ultimate smoothie – pops up as chair of appointments at Ipso, Fleet Street’s outlaw response to the Leveson reforms. The job follows his doomed, decade-long efforts to square another impossible circle, the funding of political parties. That was preceded by a review of the honours system (also doomed). A man of many grand hats, he chaired the National Theatre until 2010. There is also Marlborough College, Princess Kate’s alma mater, which is holding up quite well under his stewardship, despite the occasional controversy on his watch. Cometh the hour, cometh the man, but has Fleet Street picked the right one?

The Phillips compromise has to be good for the Party, as well as the country
10 Downing Street is reportedly hoping the Conservatives will – through Sir Hayden Phillips’ review – accept capping constituency campaign expenditure in return for the unions voluntarily ceasing to give large donations to the Labour Party. This potential deal is a little one-sided.

There is of course a cap in place already but it only counts within four weeks of election day. Conservatives usually outspend the other parties in the period before this by having more active and affluent Constituency Associations, and by receiving funding from safe seats, and donors such as Lord Ashcroft who orchestrated a large private funding scheme for marginal seats at the last election.

Labour’s National Executive Committee published its review into party funding in June, specifically mentioning Ashcroft’s target seat support as something a local cap could curtail. The only justification being that it didn’t make sense to merely cap four weeks out of a four year electoral cycle. Downing Street is also hoping that spending caps will start as soon as candidates are selected, thereby reducing the impact of the Conservatives choosing some candidates very early. Bizarrely there is also mention of only applying such caps to the 100 most marginal seats.

The Labour Party’s position seems motivated purely by political expediency which in itself is hardly shocking, but at least the Conservative proposal to cap individual donations will be healthy for democracy. If there is to be a cap on such donations, then why limit how much a campaign can raise from diverse sources and popular support?

Hearing no evil: the IPSO panel covers its ears – Brian Cathcart

Having refused to meet Hacked Off, Sir Hayden Phillips, the man in charge of appointments to the big press groups’ planned son-of-PCC, now wants to opt out of email correspondence with Hacked Off and victims of press abuses.

This is a further sign of what can be expected from ‘IPSO’, a body which is the result of consultation by press executives with other press executives – and nobody else.

The Murdoch papers, the Mail and the Telegraph group would like us all to believe that IPSO will deliver a higher level of press accountability than the ‘toothless poodle’ PCC, but even before it has been launched IPSO is proving that it is not accountable at all.

We have written to Sir Hayden Phillips several times since he and the other non-industry members of his panel, Dame Denise Platt and Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood, rejected our requests for face-to-face meetings.  Now he has written back to say that ‘we are just going to have to agree to differ’.

This withdrawal from dialogue leaves unanswered several important questions we put to him, and through him Lord Brown and Dame Denise.

They are:

1.  How do the panel members justify engaging with a process that is explicitly designed to defy the recommendations of the Leveson Inquiry, the wishes of all parties in Parliament, the views of all the leading victims of press abuses and the preference of the public at large?

2.  Do the panel members accept the analysis of IPSO by the Media Standards Trust which shows that IPSO only satisfies 12 out of 38 Leveson recommendations on press self-regulation? (No one has published any response finding fault with this analysis.)

3.  Do the panel members agree that PCC-IPSO cannot be independent of the press industry when (a) the two ‘industry representatives‘ among their number can effectively exercise a veto over their work (thanks to the requirement for consensus) and (b) an industry body called the ‘Regulatory Funding Company’ will dominate IPSO by retaining veto powers in several policy areas and by holding the purse-strings?

4.  Do they acknowledge that they were themselves appointed to the panel under a process that breached written public undertakings of openness given when IPSO was unveiled last November? (In a behind-closed-doors administrative process, the rules were simply altered without public consultation or announcement to permit a behind-closed-doors appointments process.)

5.  What grounds have they to believe that the people who oversaw the PCC during the worst years of press abuses, and who still oversee it, and who are now responsible for setting up PCC-IPSO, can now, suddenly, be trusted to put the public’s interests before those of their own newspapers?

The failure to answer these questions is, in our view, a failure to show accountability. Instead Sir Hayden and his panel appear to be prepared to answer only to their industry paymasters.

Sir Hayden, Dame Denise and Lord Brown have all had long careers in public service. It is sad that they have chosen to risk their reputations by participating in what Lord Justice Leveson would undoubtedly classify as another cosmetic reform of the PCC.

It would be far sadder, however, if their reputations and their involvement helped to encourage anyone to believe that PCC-IPSO could deliver effective, proportionate and fair remedies for press wrongdoing and proper press regulation. PCC-IPSO will not do that. It is designed to prevent it from happening.

Lady Hanson Joins the Fight to Free Martin

By Dempster, Nigel | The Mail on Sunday (London, England), September 16, 2001

FARMER Tony Martin, jailed for life for shooting dead a burglar, has received financial help from an unexpected source Lord Hanson’s wife, Geraldine.

Unlike her husband, who built an empire worth billions, American-born Geraldine keeps a low profile.

But after my item that law-and-order campaigner Peter Cadbury was keen to increase his contribution to Martin’s fighting fund, Geraldine, 68, has also come foward to help.

Chocolate heir Cadbury, 83, former chairman of Westward TV, says: ‘She sent me a [pound]1,000 cheque which I’m passing to Martin’s solicitors and I’m sending a further [pound]1,000 myself.’ Martin was jailed for killing teenager Fred Barras but Brendon Fearon, who led the raid at Emneth Hungate, Norfolk, was released last month after serving half of a three-year sentence for attempted burglary.


Geraldine, always perfectly groomed, became the ideal spouse and hostess, mistress of all her husband’s immaculately decorated homes on both sides of the Atlantic.

Hanson owned his own executive jet (which in 1967 was hijacked and taken to Algeria with the former Congolese Prime Minister Moise Tshombe on board).

In those summers when James and Geraldine entertained friends aboard their yacht, the Boule Dogue in the South of France, the cash flowed like the local wine.

Every day the boat would cruise the coastline and dock at the best shopping areas of the Mediterranean while Geraldine added to her already considerable wardrobe in every port.

While she would change into a fresh outfit for every meal, Hanson would play the generous host in all the local watering holes, such as Tetou and the Hotel du Cap.

At home he was also running around in his own helicopters and fittingly for one who would be knighted by Prime Minister Harold Wilson in his resignation Honours List buying the very one in which Wilson had flown around canvassing for the 1974 election.

Hanson was close to Wilson in those days sharing with him a love of Gilbert and Sullivan and entertaining him along with Gordy (by now on to his second marriage) at lavish dinners in London.

Hanson used his helicopters to ferry guests such as actor Kirk Douglas to his country pad near Newbury. Throughout the Eighties and Nineties, while Gordy moved on to a third, much younger wife, Hanson maintained a highly respectable profile on both sides of the Atlantic, venturing into arts sponsorship in Britain and even showing his ecological credentials by donating [pounds sterling]2 million to put otters back into the river Ure in Yorkshire.

After his retirement in 1997, he spent his time firing off advice in letters and articles about Labour inefficiency and Tory principles but the high life continued.

If it was summer it had to be Ascot and Wimbledon with dinners and lunches in Mark Birley’s elegant Mayfair establishment Harry’s Bar.

There Hanson would entertain his Palm Springs neighbours, including former U.S. ambassador Walter Annenberg and the ageing Kirk Douglas.

He was still booking lunch dates and discussing the future of the Tory Party in his outspoken way right to the end.

'Decent': Clive Bannister

Clive Bannister

Swiss prosecutors investigate HSBC for money laundering over claims it helped hide millions for arms dealers and blood diamond traders

  • Investigators have searched Geneva offices of HSBC’s Swiss private bank
  • Probe stems from ‘recent published revelations’ it helped clients evade tax
  • Stolen files claim bank helped dodge taxes on accounts containing $119bn
  • Leaked memo revealed HSBC were willing to help a ‘blood diamond’ trader 
  • Aided smuggler despite knowing he was being investigated for tax evasion

The Geneva offices of HSBC were raided by Swiss prosecutors yesterday in an investigation into alleged money laundering.

Public prosecutors said they were searching for evidence of ‘aggravated money laundering’ after ‘the recent published revelations ’ about HSBC’s Swiss private bank.

It is the latest damaging twist for the banking giant embroiled in a scandal over claims staff helped rich clients dodge tax.

Although the Geneva prosecutor’s office said the probe was against the bank, it added that it could target individuals ‘suspected of committing or participating in acts of money laundering.’

Those found guilty could face a fine and up to five years in prison.

Authorities in France, Belgium, the US and Argentina have already launched criminal inquiries.

Former HSBC executive Clive Bannister – the son of four-minute-mile legend Sir Roger – could face questions from the Geneva public prosecutor.

The 55-year-old spent 17 years at the bank and was the boss of its global private banking business from 1998 to 2006.

Clive Bannister, chief executive of the Phoenix Group (Ben Cawthra)

Oxford-educated Mr Bannister, a father of three sons who is also a keen runner, was based in London. He was instrumental in turning the private bank into a global powerhouse with profits soaring to almost £1billion by 2007.

HSBC’s Swiss private bank was a key part of his empire. Although there is no suggestion Mr Bannister was aware of any wrongdoing, the alleged misconduct occurred from 2005-2007, overlapping part of his service. Prosecutors may also choose to summon former trade minister Lord Green, who joined David Cameron’s government in 2011.

He was the chief executive and then chairman of HSBC until stepping down in 2010 and sat on the board of the Swiss banking arm for a decade.

… the controversy has touched his current role as chief executive of insurance firm Phoenix Group as his chairman Sir Howard Davies has asked him to explain his role at HSBC.

Going underground: Count Nikolai von Bismarck is said to be living in the basement of supermodel Kate Moss' Highgate home

Who is Kate Moss’s new lodger, Nikolai Von Bismarck?

Andrea Dellal, Mario Testino, Naomi Campbell, Countess Debonaire von Bismarck and Suzy Menkes attend the Charlotte Olympia ‘Handbags for the Leading Lady’ launch dinner at Toto’s Restaurant on October 23, 2014 in London, England.

Male Models Say Mario Testino and Bruce Weber Sexually Exploited Them

 

It looks like Kate Moss has a new lodger. And he is a Count. Nikolai von Bismarck, 28, is said to be living in the basement of Moss’s Highgate home. He is the son of Moss’s close friend and mentor Debonnaire (yes, really) and rent in London being what it is, she decided to invite him into the place she shares with her daughter Lila Grace, 13.

But is Moss, 41, more than just his landlady? Von Bismarck accompanied her to the opening of Richard Caring’s Sexy Fish restaurant in Berkeley Square last week; they nursed their hangovers over a pub lunch in the Cotswolds.

Moss never complains, never explains, and her camp has not confirmed that she has separated from her husband, musician Jamie Hince. But they haven’t been seen together in public since early summer, and whispers about break-ups are turning into assumed truths.

So is Moss playing by the mantra “The best way to get over someone is to get off with a mate’s 28-year-old son”? His mother aside, the pair have plenty of mutual friends, but since you probably don’t, here’s everything you need to know about Nik.

The NvB CV

Londoner Nikolai is the eldest of the four Bizzy boys. They often wear matching clothes and call him Nick Nock. He went to Harrow — the same school as actor Benedict Cumberbatch, where fees are £36,150 a year.

Paparazzi are waiting to catch a shot of him with Moss but NvB is more used to being behind the camera — he is rarely seen without one around his neck. He started taking photos at 13, visiting the Maasai in Kenya. Even then, he was resourceful — he heard the tribe believed photos stole their soul and took a Polaroid so that they could keep the snaps (probably worth a bit on eBay).

Being an aristo doesn’t preclude hard work — at 16, he had a holiday job assisting fashion photographer Mario Testino, shooting New York strippers. He played Leonard Cohen songs and refused to talk to his subjects to create moody pieces.

Debbie Von Bismarck with Bea and Eugenie

Another model is his friend Princess Beatrice. She chose him to photograph her official 18th birthday portrait and his art teacher gave him a shout-out for it in the Harrow newsletter. Nik and Bea hiked the Inca Trail together on his gap year, cue rumours about a royal romance. But there was no time to let that develop because he was off to hone his skills at Parsons art school in Paris and then help out Annie Leibovitz in New York. The Duchess of Cambridge did work experience with him.

One blot on his CV is social networking. Don’t bother looking for him on Facebook — he uses it under a pseudonym. Reportedly, he was once banned from the site after a fracas around a group whose name might have been considered racist.

His first solo exhibition, In Ethiopia, was at 12 Francis Street in Victoria two years ago. Fatima Bhutto, Ronnie Wood, Jerry Hall and family friends Pixie and Bob Geldof came to show support and a reviewer called his work “provoking and personal, featuring countless art-historical references”— so all that education paid off. The pictures were taken while he lived in Ethiopia and he has fond memories of that time:

“I drank cow’s blood for breakfast and slept in a tent that was guarded by kids with AK-47s. I painted with them, drank ouzo with them, fired guns with them — I became one of them.” It’s a long way from Chelsea.

Mummy von B

Nikolai’s mother, Countess Debonnaire von Bismarck, has “the best name in the history of toffdom”, squeals Tatler. The 56-year-old prefers to go by Debbie, though her appointment-only Knightsbridge shop bears the full complement of syllables. The boutique sells handcrafted accessories sourced abroad: slippers made in Lebanon, jewellery from Jaipur, kaftans from Ibiza. Prices are on application, obvs. Moss calls Mummy von B “a one-off” and has loyally supported her at fashion events since forever.

An editor who sat next to the aristocrat at a dinner to celebrate the launch of a Kate Moss collection for Topshop says she was charming, and spent the whole evening talking about “her boys”.

She moonlights as a stylist and choreographed Nikolai’s fashion debut, casting her son in a shoot for Tatler in 2006, entitled Like a Virgin. Nikolai, then 18, co-starred with three models wearing pure white, frothy confections — so he won’t be intimidated by sharing living quarters with a supermodel.

A source suggests that it is to Debbie that Kate goes when she’s in need of mentorship and direction. Moss, who is a contributor at Vogue, convinced her friend to open her £7 million Chelsea house for a shoot in the magazine’s December 2014 issue (Kate’s World). Moss called it London’s most glamorous party house. The model apparently has a portrait of Debbie in her own home and when Moss was commissioned to design the interior of luxury getaway The Barnhouse in the Cotswolds this year (prices starting at £2.5 million) she turned to Debbie for advice.

Von Bismarck is at the centre of the Venn that connects Moss’s Primrose Hill set with the international art and aristocratic groups that party in London.

Testino taught Debs to pose, which came in handy when she modelled for milliner Philip Treacy’s eponymous coffee table book, nearly naked with

a feathered headdress and a plump diamond ring

on her wedding finger. Treacy wrote: “Countess Debonnaire von Bismarck commissioned this hat for her rainforest-themed birthday party at home in London. Debbie has a celebratory approach to dressing. She thinks it’s rude not to make an effort.”

Nik’s network

A friend describes Nik as “sweet”. His circle is a mix of family friends and the art crowd. He celebrated his last birthday in Mustique with his brothers, Jamie Hince, and Mary and Robbie Furze. They wore feathered headdresses, danced on the beach and saw the sunrise. But he also likes catching up with culture, which EastEnders fan Moss will appreciate.

Kate and Nik have plenty of other mutual friends, such as model Annabelle Neilson and Sadie Frost, and then there is the royal connection. As well as long- term best friend Beatrice, art dealer Blaise Patrick is his wingman. He used to date Prince Harry’s ex, Chelsy Davy, but they are all friends now.

This gentleman prefers blondes. His last big romance was with golden-haired Theodora Richards, now 30, the daughter of Rolling Stone Keith. Back in the early Noughties they were regulars on the London social scene but now she lives in New York. He has since been linked to Moss’s colleague Cara Delevingne.

The von B family tree

While Moss is from Croydon, Nikolai’s roots are in Bavaria. His great-great grandfather was Otto von Bismarck, the statesman and chancellor credited with the (first) unification of Germany in the late 19th century.

More recently, the family has endured grief and scandal. In 2007 the partially decomposed body of Gottfried von Bismarck, Nikolai’s cousin, was found at his £5 million Chelsea home three days after his death; a pathologist told a hearing that the body contained the highest level of cocaine he had seen.

Gottfried read PPE at Christ Church College, Oxford. There he was a member of the Piers Gaveston dining society and the Bullingdon Club.

In 1986 his friend Olivia Channon — an heiress and the daughter of late former Tory minister Paul Channon — died of a heroin overdose in his rooms. He was fined and left Oxford immediately; he reportedly “wept like a child” at her funeral. A year before Gottfried died, a man called Anthony Casey fell from a balcony of his Chelsea home at a party. Casey reportedly had a “substantial” amount of cocaine in his body.

Coroner Dr Paul Knapman stated that there was a room in the flat containing items including sex toys, a butane gas canister and a box of syringes. He added, “in common parlance, in the early hours of the morning, there was a gay orgy going on,” and recorded a verdict of misadventure.

Today, the von Bismarcks are based in London. Nikolai’s father, Count Leopold von Bismarck-Schönhausen, 64, married Debbie in 1984; the two live in Belgravia. Don’t worry about remembering his full name, everyone calls him Bolly; Tatler explains that he looks “fetching in a fez”.

Nikolai is their eldest child, followed by Tassilo, 26, a client relations manager at investment firm North American Western Asia Holdings. He once interned for former Republican presidential nominee John McCain.

Next, there’s Caspar, a 23-year-old New York University student. After-dinner entertainment at his 17th birthday party — held at his parents’ house — involved a semi-naked pole dancer and a mound of Krispy Kremes. Guest Princess Eugenie snapped the pictures on her phone. Other attendees included Rufus Taylor, son of Queen drummer Roger, along with Princess Beatrice’s boyfriend Dave Clark and Made in Chelsea’s Hugo Taylor.

Baby Bismarck is Alexander, 20, nicknamed Sascha, who has followed his big brother to NYU. He’s a Liverpool supporter and likes Family Guy.

Tragic party host von Bismarck found dead in London flat

· Eccentric German count was plagued by two deaths
· Signs of heroin overdose after body discovered
He was the eccentric German aristocrat with a penchant for fishnet stockings and lederhosen whose debauched parties had twice ended in death.

The first time was at Oxford University in 1986, when the daughter of a Conservative minister overdosed in his bed. The second was last year, when a man plunged 60ft to the ground from the roof terrace of the 44-year-old count’s luxury apartment in Chelsea, west London.

This week, a third and final tragedy struck Gottfried Alexander von Bismarck – his body was discovered by paramedics at his flat.

The great-great-grandson of the Iron Chancellor, who united 19th century Germany, had apparently died of a heroin overdose.

The paramedics had been called in by an estate agent who had the keys to sell the property; it is understood he had been asked by a member of the count’s family to look round because of their concern that they had been unable to raise him for several days.

Reports suggested drugs paraphernalia were found near the body. A Met spokeswoman last night would not say whether the police were treating the death as suspicious. Results of a postmortem are expected today.

The life of the flamboyant count – full name Gottfried Alexander Leopold Graf von Bismarck-Schonhausen – was marked by the highest highs and the lowest lows, often one directly following the other. At Oxford he was notorious for wild parties at which severed pigs’ heads were served and guests toasted each other in blood, while he played host dressed in fishnet stockings or lederhosen.

In 1986, at a party in the student count’s rooms at Christ Church College to celebrate the end of exams, Olivia Channon, daughter of the millionaire trade minister Paul Channon, was found dead in his bed.

She had died due to respiratory failure caused by an overdose of heroin and drink. Although von Bismarck always claimed he had not seen Ms Channon “chasing the dragon”, heating heroin on silver foil and inhaling the fumes – and was never implicated in her death other than to be charged separately for possessing drugs – the incident haunted him for the remainder of his life.

In 1991 he said: “There are still people who will not speak to my parents because of it, who said to my mother, ‘What a rotten son you have, he has disgraced the name of Bismarck’.”

After time in rehab, then a spell back in Germany working as an actor, and in a job helping firms in the former GDR on the road to privatisation after the fall of the Berlin Wall, he resettled in London some years ago.

He kept out of the headlines until last August, when a man fell from the roof terrace of his London home during a wild party. Anthony Casey, 38, had a “substantial” amount of cocaine in his body when he plunged 60ft, an inquest heard in October. Mr Casey had been feeling unwell when he asked the count for the key to the roof terrace.

The coroner, Paul Knapman, said that a room in the flat contained what most people would consider “unusual” and “bizarre” items, including buckets of sex toys, a butane gas canister and a box of dozens of syringes.

He added: “In common parlance, in the early hours of the morning, there was a gay orgy going on.” Dr Knapman recorded a verdict of misadventure.

Hedonism ran in the von Bismarck family. His great-great-grandfather was made prime minister of Prussia in 1862, and is credited with engineering modern Germany by defeating France in 1870-71 and uniting the various German states into an empire. He also loved food and drink and was a famed raconteur at parties.

· This article was amended on Monday July 9 2007. Olivia Channon died in 1986, not 1989. This has been corrected.

How Did Trump and Clinton Pal Jeffrey Epstein Escape #MeToo?

06.22.18

Call him Weinstein 1.0: The billionaire with famous friends (Kevin Spacey, Woody Allen) was a secret pervert who used his power and influence to groom teens for abuse.

President Trump was among the deviant philanthropist’s admirers. “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump told New York in 2002. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it—Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

Jeffery’s “social life,” according to police and a score of lawsuits, involved a pedophile ring of dozens of underage girls, whom he groomed and then loaned out to powerful friends.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/how-did-trump-and-clinton-pal-jeffrey-epstein-escape-metoo

 


August 11, 2018

Steve Bannon shared a secret meeting with reviled billionaire pedophile Jeffrey ­Epstein at the financier’s notorious Upper East Side mansion.

Former White House chief strategist Bannon was spotted stepping out of his SUV and entering the registered sex offender’s sprawling 21,000-square-foot mansion at 9 E. 71st St. shortly before 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Epstein’s ­palatial pad is one of his homes where young girls were allegedly brought in to perform massages and used as “sex slaves.”

We assume Bannon wasn’t there for a massage.

Sources speculate that the disgraced ­Epstein wants to use his millions to work his way close to political power again.

One told us, “Bannon needs money to bankroll his political agenda. Epstein has plenty of money, and craves power and access.”

Bannon made an early-morning beeline to Epstein, even though Bannon may have burned bridges when he savaged Ivanka Trump over her criticism of Roy Moore, whom Bannon backed despite claims the candidate had sexually harassed teens. Citing an allegation in ­legal papers from a woman (who later dropped her lawsuit) that Donald Trump and Epstein had raped her when she was 13, Bannon said in response to Ivanka, “What about the allegations about her dad and that 13-year-old?”

Epstein has previously used his millions to cultivate the world’s most powerful — but has mostly given money to Democrats.

From 2001 to 2003, Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s private plane, dubbed “The Lolita Express,” 26 times. Epstein is close to Prince Andrew and was a regular at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.

Trump told New York magazine of Epstein in 2002, “Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

Epstein, 65, pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting prostitution from a teen and served 13 months in jail.

Last year, he reportedly paid millions to settle three lawsuits filed against him by teens. Bannon’s rep didn’t comment. A lawyer for Epstein said, “Let me ask him,” but didn’t respond by deadline.

Prince Andrew sex allegations: ‘Slave girl’ Virginia Roberts claims she had orgy with duke and EIGHT other girls

She claimed paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein paid her $400 for “servicing” the prince in New York and also says Andrew slept with her and other girls at Caribbean sex party

Prince Andrew’s “sex slave” vows to bring him to justice in a criminal court alleging he was involved in an underage orgy with his paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein and eight young girls.

In court papers filed yesterday, Virginia Roberts claims she was paid $400 to “service” Prince Andrew, who she referred to as “Andy”, while under the age of consent.

She repeats her claim of having sex with him in London then gives more details of times she says she met the Duke at Epstein’s home in New York and on his Caribbean island.

In the papers lodged in Florida, she says: “The second time I had sex with Prince Andrew was in Epstein’s New York mansion in spring 2001.

“I was 17 at time. Epstein was there, along with Maxwell and Andy. Epstein and Maxwell were making lewd jokes about ‘Randy Andy’.

“I had the impression Andy had come there to have sex with me. There was no other apparent purpose for him to be there.

“I was told to go upstairs with Andy and to go to the room I thought of as the dungeon. I had sex with Andy there. I was only paid $400 from Epstein for servicing Andy.

The third time I had sex with Andy was in an orgy on Epstein’s private island.

“Epstein, Andy, approximately eight other young girls, and I had sex together.”

The mum-of-three, who said she was “recruited” by Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of disgraced tycoon Robert Maxwell, aged 15, said she wanted to bring all the “powerful people” who had abused her to justice.

She added: “I have directed my attorneys to pursue all reasonable and legitimate means to have criminal charges brought against these powerful people for crimes they have committed against me and other girls.

“I am telling the truth and will not let these attacks prevent me from exposing the truth that I was trafficked for sex to many powerful people.”

Lawyers for Miss Roberts claim they sent a letter to Andrew demanding he gives a statement under oath.

But they say it was sent back as having been refused by the recipient.

The Duke, 54, emphatically denies “any sexual contact or relationship” with Miss Roberts, 31, while Royal aides have insisted he knew nothing of Epstein’s offending.

Scotland Yard are also understood to be looking into whether to start a criminal probe.

The latest allegations came as claims were made that flight logs appeared to put Prince Andrew and Miss Roberts together in the locations at the time she claims the three sex sessions took place.

The records, said to match court circulars outlining Andrew’s whereabouts in 2001, are believed to show he was on Epstein’s Caribbean island at the time Miss Roberts claims the underage orgy took place – as well as in London and New York on the two other occasions.

Virginia Roberts Letter filing claims

The logs, posted online, recording Miss Roberts’ travels, put more pressure on Prince Andrew over her allegations.

She has claimed she was forced to have sex with him in the London home of Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of disgraced tycoon Robert Maxwell. The pair were pictured together there on that night.

She says she was paid £10,000 in total by Epstein for her time with the Duke.

Flights logs and official documents appear to show Andrew and Roberts were in London on March 2001, in New York in early April, and in the Caribbean on the US Virgin Islands later the same week. Roberts did not turn 18 until August of that year. Lawyers acting for billionaire Epstein had tried to silence Roberts on Tuesday, claiming she has no right to bring a case.

The billionaire’s legal team say she repeatedly refused to bring a complaint before the six-year statute of limitations expired.

Andrew would be spared further claims and court revelations if a judge agrees to throw out her suit against US prosecutors for agreeing a plea deal with Epstein, 62.

He had faced up to 20 years in jail after the FBI found more than 40 alleged victims – but instead pleaded guilty to a single charge of soliciting a minor. He got 18 months but served less than 13 months.

Also in the court papers were details of a sick offer by Epstein to give Miss Roberts a mansion and monthly allowance in return for letting him father a child with her.

She also claimed Epstein was sent three 12-year-old French girls to abuse for his birthday.

Miss Roberts also alleges in papers filed yesterday to have had sex with US lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who used to represent convicted Epstein – claims which he strongly denies.

The Harvard law professor has described her claims as “totally false and made up. I’ve never seen her, never met her. I don’t know who she is”.

Roberts also revealed how she had spoken to the FBI while living in Australia. She said: “In 2011, two FBI agents, called me in Australia and then came to meet me.

“They met me at the U.S. Consulate in Sydney. They seemed to be very professional and hard working. I thought, ‘Wow, these people will do the right thing against the bad guys and protect me’.

“I was aware that a false statement to these law enforcement officers was a crime and I told the truth – giving them information I could recall about individuals they inquired about.

“Epstein also trafficked me for sexual purposes to many other powerful men, including politicians and powerful business executives. Epstein required me to describe the sexual events that I had with these men presumably so that he could potentially blackmail them.

“I am still very fearful of these men today.”

Elsewhere in the document, Roberts spoke about being on board Epstein’s private jet with former President Bill Clinton but said she never had any sexual contact with him.

Lawyers for Roberts and three other victims also gave details about requests in December 2011 to determine whether or not Prince Andrew had lobbied on behalf on Epstein during his plea deal.

Yesterday’s papers state at the time “the Government denied that it had documents reflecting contacts by Prince Andrew”. In the original lawsuit filed by Roberts on December 28 her lawyers state she was under the age of consent when she claims she had sex with Andrew while on Epstein’s 78-acre Caribbean bolthole in the US Virgin Islands, where the legal age of consent is 18.

Buckingham Palace has emphatically denied Prince Andrew had sexual contact with Miss Roberts, saying claims were without foundation.

A spokesman for Ghislaine Maxwell said earlier this month: “The allegations made against Ghislaine Maxwell are untrue.

“The original allegations are not new and have been fully responded to and shown to be untrue.

“The claims are obvious lies and should be treated as such.”

Music mogul Jonathan King denies sex assaults on boys

 4 May 2018

Former DJ and music producer Jonathan King has denied a series of sexual abuse offences against 12 teenage boys.

The 73-year-old, of Bayswater, west London, is accused of assaulting the boys, aged between 14 and 17, between 1970 and 1988.

Mr King, appearing at Southwark Crown Court under his birth name of Kenneth George King, pleaded not guilty to each of the 18 counts.

King is charged in relation to seven incidents of alleged buggery, and 11 incidents of alleged indecent assault.

He was released on bail to appear again on 11 June 2018.

Boy George and Matthew Kelly

Kelly’s ‘grooming’ film

By MICHAEL LEA

ACCUSED TV host Matthew Kelly narrated a film about a children’s shelter that became a paedophile’s paradise, it was revealed yesterday. Kelly  being probed over claims he sexually abused a boy  did a voiceover for a promotional video about the Jari Village refuge in Ethiopia. The Stars In Their Eyes presenter told how carers helped young famine victims back on to their feet. But in reality the refuge became a “grooming” centre run by child sex monster David Christie, a pal of 52-year-old Kelly.

There is no suggestion that married Kelly, who is on police bail, visited Jari Village or knew it was a haven for paedophiles. But his role in promoting it is further evidence of his association with convicted paedophile Christie, 60 who in 1997 admitted having sex with a Jari child. An aid worker who campaigns for kids in Ethiopia told The Sun: “We were astonished when we learned Matthew Kelly had been arrested over sex abuse allegations.

Instantly, we remembered this promotional video he narrated for Jari Village. It concerned us as Jari became infamous as having been infiltrated by paedophiles. They knew they could get easy access to vulnerable youngsters by targeting aid organisations and charities.” Kelly calls the children “survivors” in the grainy 12-minute film. But many were really victims. The aid worker has sent a copy of the video to Surrey Police, who are investigating the allegation facing Kelly.

In the film kiddies are seen in every shot. At one point youngsters in red leotards perform acrobatics and juggling routines to promote “Circus Jari”  based on an idea by disgraced aid worker Marc Lachance.

He founded Circus Ethiopia, a globe-trotting troupe recruited from street children.In 1998, 15 performers sought asylum in Australia claiming they were sex abuse victims. And Oxford-born Lachance killed himself when they named him as a pervert.

Dad-of-two Kelly is thought to have befriended ex-minicab driver Christie in Sri Lanka, where the TV star has a holiday home. It is believed he narrated the film as a favour to his pal. Christie was convicted in Britain in 1965 after forcing a boy to perform a sex act. But in 1994, he became the Ethiopian representative of Jari’s founders, the Swiss charity Terre des hommes.

Taped … misspelled credit for Kelly’s narration

One of the teachers he recruited was Canadian Denys Benjamin hired a fortnight after he was arrested in Sri Lanka for acts of gross indecency.
Within weeks, Benjamin was found in bed with a Jari orphan. Christie was fired in 1997. He is currently in an Ethiopian jail facing charges of trafficking kids and abuse.

The beast, of Bournemouth, Dorset, was once given a 10,000 loan by Kelly, which the star later wrote off. Kelly must return to a police station on March 12. He has not been charged.

However, Cold Blood reworks this familiar Silence of the Lambs theme uncommonly well. Much of the credit can go to Matthew Kelly’s portrayal of the fastidious, weirdly personable killer. Some of the exchanges between his character, Brian Wicklow, and the detectives in the interview room are beautifully turned as Wicklow tries to gain the upper hand over his inquisitors.

The Stars In Their Eyes presenter, Matthew Kelly, was arrested and bailed by Surrey Police  over allegations of sexual abuse on boys under the age of 16 during the 1970s.

Officers in Sri Lanka raided a holiday home that Matthew Kelly  rents in Colombo and took away a computer and videos.

As part of the same inquiry, police detained Tam Paton, former manager of the 1970s pop group Bay City Rollers, and Steve Jolley, a music tycoon. They are expected to answer bail on March 12.

The allegations against Kelly arose from Operation Arundel, which centred on the involvement of Jonathan King, the pop mogul, with a 1970s disco called The Hop, in Walton-on-Thames.

King was jailed for seven years in 2001 for offences against boys.

Jimmy Savile, Edward Heath and the Kray twins

A 1977 prison report said: ‘Ronald Kray remains an active and predatory homosexual, and cares little who knows it.’ Another report describes how Kray was found in bed with another inmate.

Reportedly, prison officers usually turned a blind eye to Kray’s affairs. Reggie Kray’s twin brother was Ronnie Kray, who was also a gangster and lover of boys.

The twins had huge property interests in East Anglia. Kray had access to many London care homes and would have boys delivered to parties at DJ Alan ” fluff” Freeman’s large flat over a music shop in East London. There they would meet with show biz types and DJs including Jimmy Saville, Joe Meeks and on occasion Beatles manager Brian Epstein. The eastern crime squad knew about the Kray gangsters and the sex parties known as ” Pink ballets ” with young lads but let them continue

At these parties , young boys , specially brought over from several childrens homes would be plied with drugs and alcohol.

However these parties were forced to come to an end when Police chiefs got wind that the MP & Ex Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe was attending them along with several other prominent MP’s…

At a big London railway station in the spring of 1970, a plastic carrier bag was found in the regular search for bombs before the station closed for the night.  “The contents were an odd assortment of letters and photos, which seemed to have been taken at a kinky party attended by some well-known figures in entertainment.
“One in particular showed a pop singer who masquerades under a Christian persona; dressed in women’s underwear he was pictured with young boys. (I will leave it to you, just who that famous pop singer could have been !)
“The bag was duly taken to the station office and, as a senior rail worker wrote out a report for the lost property office, two MI5 men and a special branch officer arrived and demanded the photos.”  Like the Dickens report and other evidence of VIP child abuse it has been buried.
Boothby was a promiscuous bisexual, in a time when male homosexual activity was a criminal offence. While an undergraduate at Magdalen College, Oxford, Boothby earned the nickname “the Palladium”, because “he was twice nightly”. He later spoke about the role of a speculated homosexual relationship in the drowning of his friend Michael Llewelyn Davies (one of the models for Peter Pan) and fellow Oxonian Rupert Buxton. He did not start to have physical relationships with women until the age of 25.      From 1954 Boothby  campaigned publicly for homosexual law reform.

Lord Boothby, who incidentally was  very close to Winston Churchill, liked masochistic sex with rent boys and would often be known to use the Krays for the procurement of young boys
It all started in  1963 when Boothby began an illicit affair with East End cat burglar Leslie Holt (d. 1979). Holt was  a younger man Boothby met at a gambling club. Holt introduced him to the gangster Ronald Kray, the younger Kray twin, Ronald supplied Boothby with teenage boys and arranged orgies in Cedra Court.  The boys were told to behave or else. And they certainly knew what else meant !
The Krays also came into the public eye when an exposé in the tabloid newspaper Sunday Mirror  began to expose a sexual relationship between a  gangster    and a UK Conservative Party politician.   Although names had not been published the Kray twins threatened the journalists involved in the story, whilst  Boothby threatened to sue. The newspaper backed down under pressure, sacked its editor, printed an apology and paid Boothby £40,000 in an out-of-court settlement. As a result, other newspapers were unwilling to uncover the Krays’ connections, criminal and sexual activities. Consequently young boys continued to be supplied from children’s homes to be sexually exploited  for the gratification  of  gangsters and corrupt politicians.  All this wilt the  blessing of the Police and Parliament.  Decades later nothing changed.

Ronnie once said to a boy: “You will go home with Lord Boothby. You will do exactly what Lord Boothby wants. Or I will hurt you”
Kray biographer, John Pearson, writing in the Independent on Sunday, also claims that the Peer and the MP engaged in gay sex orgies with children and that Boothby had a fondness for boys defacating on him, and the Krays had a compromising photograph of Boothby and his memiors.
Similarly, when Tom Driberg, a Labour MP and KGB agent who wore fishnet stockings, got involved with the Krays, telling them ‘about the houses of rich friends they could burgle,’ again the government suppressed any inquiry, as they didn’t want to have to cope with the damaging revelations.
The media were further intimidated and silenced when Boothby and Driberg used the Krays ‘to turn anyone over who had crossed them’. The Police protected the Krays and children  continued to be supplied  and abused.
On notepaper carrying his address in Eaton Square, Belgravia, Lord Boothby wrote to Kray on June 6, 1963: ”Thank you for your postcard. I very nearly went to Jersey myself, as I have never been there, and hear from so many people that it is quite delightful.”

Pop mogul Jonathan King, 72, is charged with 18 sex offences from the 1970s and 80s

  • King famed for songs like Everyone’s Gone to the Moon and Hooked on a Feeling
  • He appeared many times on television including shows like Entertainment USA
  • King was bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday
May 25 2017

 

Pop mogul and record producer Jonathan King was today charged with 18 historical sex offences against nine alleged victims.

King was famed for songs including Everyone’s Gone to the Moon and Hooked on a Feeling and discovered the band Genesis as a music producer.

He appeared many times on television on both sides of the Atlantic including on shows like Top of the Pops and Entertainment USA.

Surrey Police announced he was charged with offences which allegedly took place between 1970 and 1986.

King, aged 72 years, was bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday, June 26, to answer the charges which were uncovered as part of ‘Operation Ravine’.

A Surrey Police spokesman said: ‘Operation Ravine was established in early 2015 following a review by Merseyside Police into the Surrey Police investigation entitled Operation Arundel which launched in 2000.

‘The independent review was commissioned in January 2014 to ensure all lines of inquiry had been identified.

‘A number of actions have subsequently been progressed under Operation Ravine leading to new allegations of sexual offences being identified.’

Jonathan-King-007

Jonathan King has been desperately attempting to suggest that he has been the victim of false allegations similar to those that have been circulating in the press recently even going as far as coming to Edward Heath’s defence as a character witness in The Spectator (Yeh, right!). This Sunday he wrote:

We see these pathetic stories crumbling, started by mentally unstable characters in a fantasy world wanting attention, sympathy, believing their own stories (reminds me of the man who started my witch hunt, who, it transpires, made money as a teenager telling people his mother was dying of cancer and forcing her to call the donors to deny the tale and apologise)

– carried by media sources desperate for “great stories” (like the wonderful Exaro) – picked up by millions as a “great story” – forcing under funded police forces to spend millions on investigating stupid tales that, a few years ago, would have been dropped in seconds – stirred up by media howls (“Savile WAS a pervert – ignored for years”) expanding unproveable stories and encouraging further mad tales by unhinged “victims”.

King of Shits

It only serves to highlight the dangers of false allegations in the media when they can be used by a man like King to muddy the waters but it seems that he’s not fooling the police – and he certainly doesn’t fool me.

It has been plausibly suggested (though unconfirmed) that the other men arrested with Jonathan King are Deniz Corday (86) who started the Walton Hop Teen disco in 1958 and former Hop DJ Robert Randall (77)

The former music industry figure Jonathan King has been arrested on suspicion of historical child sex offences, the BBC understands.

Mr King, 70, was arrested at his home in Bayswater, west London, by Surrey Police officers on Wednesday morning.

Two other men, aged 77 and 86, both from Walton-on-Thames, were also arrested and are being questioned.

The arrests were made in connection with allegations linked to the Walton Hop Disco in Walton-on-Thames.

An ongoing investigation, titled Operation Ravine, is looking into allegations of sexual offences against children connected with the disco in the 1970s and 1980s.

Surrey Police said specialist police officers were searching the men’s properties.

Truthseeker1‏ @thewakeupcall09:

Wonder if Jonathan King knows who the former manager of several top bands that has money in a boy brothel in Thailand ?

Who where Jonathan King’s band manager friends besides Simon Cowell ?


THE SICKENING SHOWBIZ WEB OF SEX FIENDS.

KING was just one of an underground network of showbiz paedophiles involved in sex abuse and child porn.

The evil DJs, songwriters, rock stars and boy band managers hid their twisted sex lives for years.

Some of those who shared King’s sordid lust have been nailed. But others are still getting away with it.

King, 56, was brought to book following a lengthy police probe into a tip that British perverts were operating in the Czech capital Prague.

Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning, 59, a friend of King’s since the 70s, was jailed for four and a half years by a court in Prague last year on ten charges of sexually abusing young boys.

King’s name was mentioned by one of his victims. Denning was in the original Radio 1 line up in l967 and worked with King as a record producer.

Denning, of Bracknell, Berks, has convictions in Britain dating back 30 years for sex assault, gross indecency and child porn.

During visits to Prague seeking victims Denning befriended Britain’s most wanted paedophile Warwick Spinks.

Spinks, 35, was jailed for seven years in 1995 after drugging a 14-year-old boy and selling him to a gay brothel in Amsterdam. He served 30 months then fled the country while on parole.

Another ex-pal of King, songwriter and record producer Steven Jolley, was jailed for 18 months last month for indecently assaulting a 12-year-old boy.

Millionaire Jolley, who wrote and produced 1980s chart hits for Spandau Ballet, Bananarama, Diana Ross and Kim Wilde, was arrested at his mansion near Brentwood, Essex.

The raid was part of a probe into paedophile package tours to Prague organised by vile Spinks in which boys as young as ten were abused.

Jolley, 50, kept a collection of child abuse videos he had shot himself.

Sick photos and images of children are regularly exchanged among perverts, using encrypted internet websites.

That was the downfall of another former friend of Jonathan King last year. Rocker Gary Glitter, 57, was jailed for four months for having 4,000 child porn pictures on his computer.

King and Chris Denning helped Glitter launch his career. They also helped launch 70s band the Bay City Rollers.

King produced the group’s first hit Keep on Dancing in 1971 and became pals with their former manager Tam Paton and drummer Derek Longmuir.

Paton, 61, was jailed for three years in 1982 for sex with underage boys.

Longmuir, 49, was convicted last year of having indecent photos, videos and computer discs of young boys and given 300 hours’ community service.

Scotland Yard’s Paedophile Unit is trying to build cases against other celebrity cronies of King.

One is a well-known former Top of the Pops DJ who visits India in search of vulnerable youngsters.

Another is a wealthy former manager of several top bands. He has money in a boy brothel in Thailand.

Music mogul Jonathan King to face trial over ‘sex crimes’

Former music producer Jonathan King has appeared in court accused of a string of sex attacks on teenage boys.

The ex-singer is accused of assaulting boys aged 14 to 16 between 1970 and 1986 in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.

Mr King, 72, of Bayswater, west London, appeared at Southwark Crown Court for the hearing under his real name of Kenneth George King.

The Genesis producer was released on conditional bail until 22 January.

The allegations are linked to the Walton Hop Disco in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, and Mr King, who also produced songs for 10cc and the Bay City Rollers, must not contact any prosecution witnesses.

King’s trial date was set for 11 June 2018.

“It gives me the chance to undermine the inquiry from within.” Daniel Janner QC

The family of Lord Janner yesterday vowed to ‘undermine from within’ the Government’s beleaguered child sex abuse inquiry after being given a formal role in the investigation.

The family were granted core participant status which gives them access to documents and to have lawyers attend the inquiry’s hearings.

Daniel Janner applies to join the  Coningsby Club

17 Aug 1986

Past speakers have included Chancellor George Osborne, Education Secretary Nicky Morgan and Defense Secretary Michael Fallon, as well as ex-PM John Major.

The secretive club was founded in 1921. Rab Butler, who was president for many years, suggested the Conservative Party should look to the club to “provide a good part of our future political elite, if I may still venture to use such a word in the so-called Century of the Common Man”. After retiring from politics, Butler became Master of Trinity College.

The website for the exclusive dining society says that “nearly every nationally known Oxford and Cambridge Conservative politician went on to the Coningsby Club after OUCA or CUCA so you will be in good company”, but that membership was “by invitation only”.

What does Prince Charles have in common with Jonathan King? 

Both were very good friends with serial paedophile and necrophiliac, Jimmy Savile

Truthseeker1‏@thewakeupcall09

Jonathan King with Jimmy Savile and King’s brother Andy and two patients at Stoke Mandeville spinal hospital in January 1986.

King’s longtime chum Jimmy Savile, the barmy-looking blond who hosted the essential British tv music show Top of the Pops for what seemed forever, probably came closer to the true essence of the man when he once remarked, “He’s a sabra. A sabra is an Israeli fruit that’s prickly on the outside and all soft and lovely inside. That’s Jonathan King.”

Jailed Jonathan King claims he has Prince Charles’ support after ‘stock reply’ from aide

PERVERT Jonathan King has infuriated Prince Charles by conning his staff into writing to him in jail.

The Prince has ordered an inquiry into how his office sent a letter to the disgraced former music mogul and TV presenter which King is now attempting to use as bizarre ammunition in his campaign to have his child sex conviction overturned.

Jailed King is showing off the letter, complete with its royal crest, to fellow inmates and claiming he has the support of the highest quarters of the land.

Last night, a royal source said it was the SECOND time the sex offender has tried to fool Prince Charles’ staff into supporting him and insisted he should never have received a reply.

A royal aide said: “Prince Charles is very upset that he could be used like this, especially when it was known this person King had tried it before.

“It’s horrifying to think that this evil man is waving Prince Charles’ royal notepaper around the jail claiming he has royal backing for his cause.”

The one-time pop singer, 58, serving seven years for offences against schoolboys lured by his celebrity status, wrote to the Prince from Maidstone Prison, in Kent.

On an Internet website he runs from prison, he boasted: “Re: Letter to Prince Charles, I have received a very nice and supportive letter from Prince Charles in response to this post, which must remain personal as you can understand but which was much appreciated. JK.”

In his letter, King refers to former valet George Smith, who claimed to have been raped by a member of Prince Charles’s staff, and warns Charles: “Three or four false allegations of rape…you could be ruined and the monarchy destroyed.

“It will never happen, hopefully, because the police would be on your side but, when they are not, when the quest for raised conviction rates overwhelms the desire for justice, men and women are wrongfully convicted.”

King has never shown regret for his crimes and failed to mention in his letter that he was being targeted by inmates sickened because he is a “nonce”, notorious prison slang for paedophile.

Many jailed paedophiles in King’s position apply for solitary confinement in order to escape attacks from disgusted fellow inmates.

The governor at Maidstone Prison has ordered his own inquiry into King’s use of the Internet after a crisis meeting.

Last night, a St James’ Palace source said: “The Prince of Wales’s office received a letter from Jonathan King and he, in turn, was sent a standard two-line reply acknowledging receipt of the correspondence.

“It basically contained the message: ‘Thank you very much for writing, yours sincerely.’ He didn’t get a letter from the Prince himself and the Prince was not even aware of the letter being sent.“

King is now trying to use this acknowledgement of correspondence to claim he has Prince Charles’ support, which is simply ludicrous.”

King has taken his fight against sex abuse convictions to Strasbourg and the European Court of Human Rights.

He was found guilty in September 2001 of four indecent assaults against boys aged 14 to 15 in the 1980s.

King, the self-styled King of Hits, has always maintained his innocence and complained about the justice system.

In January, he failed in a bid to have his conviction overturned at the Court of Appeal in London. He has also asked the Criminal Cases Review Commission to examine his case.

King had his first hit with Everyone’s Gone To The Moon in 1965 and was involved with discovering new talent for Decca Records in the 1960s. He also produced records for Genesis, played a big role in promoting supergroup 10cc and is credited with a similar function for the Bay City Rollers.

He was fronting the TV show Entertainment USA and running his UK Records label at the time of his offences.

At his trial, the Old Bailey heard how the he lured the boys to his fashionable mews home at Queensborough Studios in Bayswater, central London, and showed them pornography before assaulting them.

A second trial based on allegations that he committed serious sexual offences against two boys in the seventies collapsed.

29 March, 2005

Clarence House also issued a statement dismissing King’s claims that Prince Charles sent him a letter of support.

A spokesman said King wrote to Charles several years ago and a reply was issued from the office, but not from the Prince.

Princesses Marina at Duncroft

Duncroft was visited by friends of the royal family, such as James Robertson Justice and the Queen’s cousin, Princess Alexandra, who was good friends with Jimmy Savile…and Rab Butler linked to PIE

Many of the 25 or so girls in its care at any one time came from comfortable backgrounds and included the daughters of ambassadors and BBC producers.

As a Home Office-approved school, funding came from Social Services.

Regular guests at their parties included the actor James Robertson Justice, who was one of Britain’s leading film stars in the 1940s and 1950s and reportedly a close friend of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Princesses Marina and Alexandra are said to have attended. Among the former Duncroft girls to have come forward, one has said she was put in the isolation unit for ‘two or three days’ after loudly protesting when Savile groped her in a caravan on the school grounds. ‘For years we tried to report him,’ another confided to me. ‘We even had a mass breakout to Staines police station.’

Princess  Alexander  was patron of NAMH and went to Duncroft under that role

Panorama and Newsnight reported that the home was often visited by numerous people, including Jimmy Savile, and that these visits seem to occur sporadically without any checks or questions being asked  How this could happen?

Girls were  taken, in groups, to recordings of programmes at the BBC television centre.

The Walton Hop was situated only five miles from Jimmy Savile’s haunt the infamous Duncroft Approved School.

Girls were also  allowed to attend the Walton Hop which was within walking distance and were sometimes provided with ‘escorts’

Walton Hop was  the hunting ground for convicted abusers such as Chris Denning, Jonathan King and Tom Paton – the latter of Bay City Rollers infamy.

A Jimmy Savile sex scandal concealed during the 1997 General Election.

Stephen Dorrell

The man who now leads the NHS Confederation failed to tell either Parliament or the public of a 1995 sex scandal at Broadmoor hospital, involving “a member of staff’ who – it can now be revealed – was Jimmy Savile.

Stephen Dorrell served as Health Secretary in Sir John Major’s government between 1995 and 1997 and did not disclose the scndal. The offences Savile committed after 1995 could have been prevented.

https://www.lobster-magazine.co.uk/free/lobster73/lob73-jimmy-savile.pdf

Dorrell was promoted to government after the 1987 General Election by the Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as an Assistant Government Whip, and in 1988 became a Lord Commissioner to the Treasury ‘full whip’. He was appointed as the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Health in 1990 under the premiership of John Major.

In November 2012 Dorrell was reported to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) after arranging to sell his London flat to “friends” who owned a chain of nursing homes, subsequently renting it back at £1,400 a month, funded by the taxpayer.

There was evidence of a Broadmoor paedophile ring in 1986

The current Savile NHS inquiry is looking at allegations of sexual abuse at Broadmoor psychiatric hospital in Berkshire.

There were allegations of a ‘child pornography ring’ at Broadmoor in 1997, but a report by Health Secretary Stephen Dorrell found “no evidence whatsoever of a paedophile ring or child pornography ring in Broadmoor”. Broadmoor’s chief executive Alan Franey resigned shortly afterwards. (Independent 17/02/97 + Independent 04/06/97)

But it seems there had also been allegations of a paedophile ring involving Broadmoor staff in 1986.

“Detectives believe they have broken a nationwide network making and distributing child porn videos. Films featuring girls as young as three and six have been seized in raids on 30 homes across the country. And a key figure in the network has been identified by CID – a middle-aged former Broadmoor nurse.”

His description was circulated to forces investigating the murder or disappearance of 15 children.

The article goes on to say that police were checking the former nurse’s work records to see whether he had “been on duty at the relevant times”.

This indicates that police knew the abuse was filmed at Broadmoor. Police searched his home and found “video equipment, sex films, and distribution records”. “The nurse appeared in some of the films”.

Two of the young victims, aged three and six, had been identified and lived in Camberley, which is just a mile or two from Broadmoor Hospital.

Politicians have pledged to hold the NHS to account over Savile’s alleged activities in hospitals.

Stephen Dorrell, chair of the health select committee told the BBC he had written to the Secretary of State to ask him to “clarify exactly what the NHS is doing to establish what happened, why it happened, and what lessons can be learned for the future.”.

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/10/28/jimmy-savile-gary-glitter-cottage_n_2034754.html

Stephen Dorrell, the veteran Conservative MP, has been accused of a conflict of interest after taking a job as an adviser with a private firm targeting a £1billion NHS contract.

The MP for Charnwood, a cabinet minister in John Major’s government, announced last week that he would be stepping down at the General Election as he had accepted a job as a health policy consultant with accountancy firm KPMG, which he said would be “incompatible” with his role as an MP.

However, it is claimed that he is starting his new three-days-a-week job on Monday, meaning that he will be in both positions for six months.

KPMG are considering bidding for a £1 billion deal to manage the patient’s medical records.

Mr Dorrell, who quit his post as chairman of the House of Commons Health Select Committee in June, faced calls to resign from one of the posts.

“This case demonstrates everything that is rotten about our -political system.”

Susanne Cameron Blackie/Susanne Nundy/Anna Raccoon is a damn blasted liar and a cover upper of institutional child abuse


Anna Racoon is known to protect paedophiles please read this from the PJC Journal wriiten April 2011

“I would call this a set-up simply because Susanne Nundy has a history. Wherever there is a story of abuse by officials, especially when it relates to children or paedophilia, up pops a swathe of names including Anna Raccoon, Susanne Nundy or under her maiden name Susanne Cameron-Blackie , all ready to ‘assist’, yet strangely the outcome is never the one that those originally abused, or their campaigners envisaged. More often than not they are ripped apart, labelled as nutters and thrown to the pack in the manner we saw with her post about Andrew Withers yesterday. Its almost as if she is a professional Trojan Horse.

Susanne Cameron-Blackie, 68, from Riverside in Reedham, is running as an independent candidate for the Islington North constituency in London.

Mrs Cameron-Blackie moved to Reedham two years ago.

Mrs Cameron-Blackie was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer – leiomyosarcoma – six years ago and was given two months to live two years ago.

She decided to stand two weeks ago after discovering the NHS Litigation Authority annual report for April 2015-16 online.

Mrs Cameron-Blackie raised the £500 election deposit in 24 hours through an online Crowdfunding page,


A second & completely different story about why this silly woman is standing against Mr Corbyn rather than the Tories who have been in charge of the NHS for 7 years. The first makes it clear it was after she was given the wrong medication last month. This second story says it was after she read a 2015 report. Is this fake news, or as some called Media Malpractice?

Dame Alun Roberts‏ @ciabaudo

Ah, so Barbara Hewson went running to Andrew Rosthorn, Raccoon’s election agent but also director of an Oyston company. We shouldn’t forget that Oyston was the financial backer behind Hewson’s uncle’s Pennine Radio …

It is interesting to note that this pro-Oyston article was penned by Andrew Rosthorn, a man who was director of an Oyston company. Interestingly, he was also election agent to Anna Raccoon, the woman who exposed Barbara Hewson.

Just a quick question: Why would Anna Raccoon, who stood against Corby in Islington, choose the Clitheroe Kid Andrew Rosthorn, a director of one of Oyston’s companies, as her election agent, a man who obviously knows Barbara Hewson very well?

https://annaraccoon.blog/2017/06/04/barbara-hewson-and-on-line-trolling/

Could it be she wanted to sidle up to Rosthorn?

AnnaStillHereRaccoon‏ @AnnaRaccoon2017

I doubt it somehow – Andrew has lots of other interests and little time, so can’t see the advantage – but maybe she was unaware of that.

She told me she thought it would be an opportunity to write an article for the Spectator on Corbyn’s election night. It made sense to me.

Andrew was only too happy to arrange it for her with the election authorities in Islington. She had to provide ID and photos.

raccoon:

There was no need for Andrew to be there, and it would have cost him a fortune to go down to London and pay for a hotel, she was already in London. By that time I was too sick to play any part in what should have been a ‘NHS campaign’- I hadn’t expected my health to deteriorate that fast, nobody had, but there you go – it did, so I was only too happy to agree to anybody pulling anything useful out of the situation that they could. Mentally I was trying to deal with the fact that I had gone from being a walking talking individual to one that was paralysed over a single weekend, at the same time as dealing with an extraordinary family situation, and with journalists emailing me because I was standing against Corbyn, and with this bizarre team of trolls convinced I was Old Holborn and with people who should have been my supporters also working in the background and creating a rift between me and Amanda, the one person I really trusted – and then the JK debacle all over the same period of a few days, whilst I was lying in hospital with people pumping drugs into me trying to kill this immense pain – did I flip? Too right I did. Anybody would have done. I, and Mr G, have coped by pulling up the drawbridge and only letting a very select few people over it. That is the way it will stay. I watch what is going on out of interest, but I am no longer part of it and never will be again. What is said on the internet just washes over me. Almost a shame really, because I can see how much effort Hewson in particular puts into sending out endless tweets, and sadly the steroids have affected my eyesight, so half the time I cannot be bothered to enlarge the screenshots to even see what she is saying!!!! I reserve my energy for e-mails etc from people who really matter like Blocked Dwarf, and and & other good solid friends, some of whom I have made quite recently like – not flakes.

Instead, we should focus on arming today’s youngsters with the savoir-faire and social skills to avoid drifting into compromising situations, and prosecute modern crime. As for law reform, now regrettably necessary, my recommendations are: remove complainant anonymity; introduce a strict statute of limitations for criminal prosecutions and civil actions; and reduce the age of consent to thirteen.”

THE PAEDOFILE: TRIBUNE UNEARTHS MILITARY INTELLIGENCE SPOOK WHO SUPPLIED NAMES FOR DICKENS DOSSIER.

St John-Stevas, Cyril Smith, Sir Peter Hayman & Attorney General Havers continue to be implicated.

In a sensational piece for the latest edition of Tribune, a major blow is dealt to those who dismiss perversion whistle-blower Geoff Dickens as a fantasist.

The post, by left-wing journalist Andrew Rosthorn, adds compelling evidence to support the Havers cover-up…in getting MI5/MI6 operative Tony Holland, now a wealthy Australian stock market investor) to go on the record as the man who furnished names for the maverick Tory MP’s dossier, Rosthorn has scored something of a coup in the serious investigation of Westminster deviants.

Among other things, the Tribune piece reveals and confirms as follows:

*The dossier ‘list’ given to Margaret Thatcher’s home secretary Leon Brittan included arts minister Norman St John-Stevas (founding member of the Bow Group) senior diplomat Sir Peter Hayman,

Rochdale MP Cyril Smith

 

*A secret  file from Mrs Thatcher’s cabinet office: PREM19/588 – SECURITY. Allegations against former public [word missing] of unnatural sexual proclivities; security aspects 1980 Oct 27 – 1981 Mar 20 has now been tracked down from the National Archives in Kew by Dr Chris Murphy, lecturer in Intelligence Studies at Salford University. The file – released to the Home Office Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse, includes a handwritten briefing note for the Attorney-General marked ‘line to take’: ‘A full investigation has been carried out and has revealed nothing to suggest that security has been prejudiced’. A carefully narrowed definition, I think one might conclude.

* To shut him up, police and judiciary conspired to get Tony Holland sent to prison in an obvious frame-up about the theft of a refrigerator. Law Lords later confirmed his innocence, but to this day Yorkshire Police refuses to obliterate the charge and conviction. Dear old YP, they never change do they? Much later – on December 28, 1991 – Melvyn Hodgson – the man whose evidence could have proved Tony Holland – was found hanged in his cell at Armley Prison in Leeds. How very convenient.

* In August 1983, Dickens handed a second dossier to Scotland Yard, having presumably by this time lost trust in Leon Brittan’s willingness to investigate it. Significantly, he testified at the time that “eight public figures, including ‘a friend of mine’“ would be named in the Commons unless the home secretary took action. It seems reasonable to speculate that Leon Brittan – who was on friendly terms with his fellow Conservative MP, and always referred to him as ‘Geoff’ – was the friend concerned.

NHS liability & Savile –

The massive legal threat to the NHS that is not hidden and sits in plain sight of the sheople like a hungry lion, has primarily fed on the issue of medical negligence but so rich are the pickings that they have already gobbled up a quarter of the entire NHS Budget.

It is all too plain that the allegations in the Savile matter all hinge around the past negligence and failure of the NHS to protect the victims from assaults on NHS property.

This Vicarious Liability naturally all rests upon these allegations being deemed true. If, as I and others have contended proved, these claims are demonstrably not true then the NHS is off the hook.

Deleted article by Rosthorn – Savile “moral panic”

moral panic…such a disgusting put down that term…labeling concern for the lives of children as “panic”…

Jimmy Savile ‘moral panic’ tracked by computer in Dordogne

Feb 23 2015 by Andrew Rosthorn

The article in question, “Jimmy Savile ‘Moral Panic’ Tracked By Computer In Dordogne”, is based on an archive of private social media discussions between the women who later came forward to claim they were sexually abused by the late entertainer. Forty years ago the women had been teenagers at the Duncroft Approved School.

The owner of the archive was a retired English lawyer living in the Dordogne region of France. She lived in care at Duncroft in 1965 and 1966. Her name was Susanne Cameron-Blackie, aka – the blogger Anna Raccoon.

Yes, Anna, or Susanne, is right at the heart of this story.

In 2013  Anna Raccoon  sent an email to Professor Viviene Cree at the Edinburgh University School of Social and Political Science, explaining the situation and saying she hoped the university would provide a good home for her archive. That summer the Economic and Social Research Council activated its Urgency Grants Mechanism to form a research team for the recovery and collation of documents and the information stored on Anna Raccoon’s computer in the Dordogne.

The full story of the research team and its project are set out in the Lancashire Magazine’s article and is recommended reading.

http://www.holliegreigjustice.uk/hgj/?p=15689

http://www.research.ed.ac.uk/portal/en/publications/moral-panics-jimmy-savile-and-social-work(e5cf3c06-4f77-4861-98a6-2d6978d9b8fd).html

Social scientists studying mass-media fantasies known as Moral Panics have rescued an archive of online conversations that promises to unravel the mysterious origins of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

Thousands of emails stored on an Apple iMac personal computer in France recorded hours of private social media discussions between the women who later came forward to claim they were sexually abused by the dead disc jockey.

Forty years ago the women had been teenagers at the Duncroft Approved School, an experimental boarding school opened by the Home Office to give a second chance of education for girls of above-average intelligence who had been taken into care.

The owner of the archive was a retired English lawyer living in the Dordogne region. She lived in care at Duncroft in 1965 and 1966.

Susanne Cameron-Blackie, known online as the blogger Anna Raccoon, had joined two online communities known as Friendsreunited and Care Leavers Reunited where former boarders at the school were exchanging memories using code names.

Collaborating online with Sally Stevens, another former pupil living in California, Anna Raccoon worked out the real identities of the women behind the code names.

Anna Raccoon has since described how she noticed that a woman who roomed with her in the Wedgewood Dormitory at Duncroft in 1965 was claiming online to have been assaulted by Jimmy Savile in the dormitory when she was 15 years old:

How could I have been so unobservant as to not notice such a comment-worthy event as a major celebrity galloping around the building unescorted? There had to be some mistake in the reporting. Or maybe in my maths? I rechecked all my fingers, yep I was definitely there in 1965. Except for one month at the end of the year – but I was back four months later.

So began a three year unofficial investigation into the Duncroft allegations that had sparked the 2012 nationwide Savile Scandal.

Cameron-Blackie collated further information gathered by three other blogging investigators known as Moor Larkin, Rabbitaway and The Rockphiles.

In November 2012, when some of the ‘care leavers’ emerged from the anonymity of social media to give television interviews and instruct lawyers to take proceedings against the BBC and Jimmy Savile’s estate, Cameron-Blackie, the former Lord Chancellor’s Visitor for Wales, was able to cross-reference their claims.

Surrey Police later wrote to a hundred surviving Duncroft pupils and staff to report that the police ‘Operation Outreach’ found no corroborated evidence that any member of staff had been aware of any wrongdoing at the school. It was also discovered from a visitor’s book that Savile had not visited the school before 1974.

In 2013, fearing that she might not survive a forthcoming cancer operation in France, Cameron-Blackie sent an email to Professor Viviene Cree at the Edinburgh University School of Social and Political Science:

I blog on the Internet as ‘Anna Raccoon’ and as such have published several articles on the current ‘Savile saga’ http://annaraccoon.com.

However, having found myself at the centre of the ‘Duncroft’ furore, I have also been given a mound of information which I have not yet published. I am looking for a good home for it!

Is there a possibility that we might collaborate in some way? I am not interested in money, nor credit for my contribution, but I am not in good health (I have had cancer for the past two years, and am now – thank God – several months past my ‘sell by’ date, but I take nothing for granted!) and I am growing concerned that should I kick the proverbial bucket, then the knowledge and the contacts that I hold will be lost forever, and one day academics will want to piece together the origins of this current panic.

Within weeks of the November 2012 screening of the ITV documentary Exposure: The Other Side of Jimmy Savile, Edinburgh University held the first of several Moral Panic Seminars, involving Professor Cree, Dr Mark Smith, head of social work, and Dr Gary Clapton, senior lecturer in social work.

The Edinburgh team say they

shared common interests in how particular subjects, especially those involving children and sex (e.g. satanic ritual abuse, child exploitation and abuse in residential child care settings) could be moralised with disproportionate and sometimes dangerous consequences.

Their research project, state-funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and described as Revisiting Moral Panics: A Critical Examination of 21st Century Social Issues and Anxieties aims

to examine some 21st century social issues and anxieties through the concept of moral panic, first brought to public attention 40 years ago in Stanley Cohen’s influential study Folk Devils and Moral Panics.

Cohen analysed media controversies involving the Mods and Rockers of the 1960s and noted

a pattern of distorted facts and misrepresentation, as well as a distinct, simplistic depiction of the respective images of both groups involved in the disturbance.

Cohen, late professor of sociology at the London School of Economics, found that like a mediaeval witch hunt ‘the depiction of mods and rockers as violent, unruly troublemakers actually led in itself to a rise in “deviant behaviour” by the subcultures.’

Dr Smith, an expert in residential child care, had already questioned the reported scale of child abuse in care homes. He noted Anna Raccoon’s discovery that a letter had been forged on stolen Surrey Police notepaper and that when the Daily Mail found the much-admired former headmistress of Duncroft, Miss Margaret Jones, 91, warned their reporter, ‘A lot of these girls at the time were very mentally disturbed.’ Anna Raccoon said:

Stories were sold to the main stream media concerning the girl who had spent a considerable time sitting up in bed opposite me. She was now claiming that Jimmy Savile had been running round our dormitory sexually abusing us and that ‘we were terrified’ – I had never heard so much nonsense.

Another girl was all over social media saying that ‘Maggie Jones’, as she had the temerity to call her, had been ‘pimping the girls out to celebrities’. I literally couldn’t believe my ears.

I was quickly rewarded with, as I had suspected, a raft of supportive ‘ex-Duncroft girls’ who had been googling these mysterious stories, and who had landed on my site. I shall always be grateful to them – they have kept my spirits high as the story grew legs by the day, and I was in danger of disappearing under a tsunami of vitriol and recrimination.

In the summer of 2013, when the National Health Service was spending a million pounds investigating Savile’s activities at 32 different hospitals, the Economic and Social Research Council activated its Urgency Grants Mechanism to form a research team for the recovery and collation of documents and the information stored on Anna Raccoon’s computer in the Dordogne.

The team ‘securing a data set on allegations of sexual abuse made against former disc jockey Jimmy Savile’ includes Dr Steve Kirkwood and Clare Llewellyn an informatics specialist, both from the University of Edinburgh, and Dr Ros Burnett, Senior Research Associate at the Centre for Criminology, Oxford University.

Dr Burnett is currently editing Vilified: Wrongful Allegations of Sexual and Child Abuse.

Funded under an ESRC call for urgent research, the project

aims to secure data that might otherwise be lost, relating to allegations made against the former DJ, Jimmy Savile. The initiative for the project came from a lawyer and writer who is a former resident of Duncroft School (from whence the initial allegations against Savile emanate), and whose blogging activity under the name of ‘Anna Raccoon’ has generated a substantial body of related correspondence and contacts which provide and could lead to information not yet in the public domain. We aim to collate and archive Anna Raccoon’s blog posts, comments on these and to interview key staff and former residents from Duncroft School. The data gathered will be digitally archived and made available to other researchers. It is likely to be of interest to social and cultural historians, criminologists, lawyers and social workers amongst others.

Dr Smith said in 2013:

The purpose is to gather new informant data not yet in the public domain but relevant to the allegations about Savile, and to cross-check this against information in newspapers and official reports.

The new data is likely to include emails, letters, blog posts and comments on blog posts, and possibly documents relating to Duncroft School, and maybe photocopies of personal notes such as diary entries and autobiographical notes that the correspondents may be willing to share. An important element of what we will be doing during this urgent phase is obtain permission to share the new data which has been acquired by Anna Raccoon. A priority will be reassure participants that their data will be appropriately anonymised.

Susanne Cameron-Blackie, still contributing to her Anna Raccoon blog, but now living with her husband in Norfolk, said last week:

I am still suffering from cancer. The doctors have not given me long to live. Although I am both a writer and a lawyer I could not have embarked on a lengthy project at this stage in my life.

I looked for someone who could research the actual truth about what really happened all those years ago and delineate the path by which we arrived at the current situation.

The NHS investigated Jimmy Saviles’s activities at Moss Side Hospital, a psychiatric hospital later merged to form the top security Ashworth Hopital at Maghull near Liverpool, Prestwich Psychiatric Hospital, St Catherine’s Hospital, Birkenhead, Wythenshawe Hospital and Booth Hall Children’s Hospital [closed in 2009]. No ‘irrefutable’ offences were found.

The subject was how to reduce false allegations.

Only just seeing this today ! Good reporting ^ Barbara (Hewson) especially the stories about Police ‘trawling’ for ‘victims’, appalling.
My only gripe would be that neither Mark Smith or ‘Anna Raccoon’ appear to have mentioned the University research project relating to the Savile claims. Much talk of ‘post Savile’ but, he, or rather, his loved ones, have had to endure three years of, what many now believe are ‘false’ claims repeated in the media on an almost daily beside.

Several bloggers including myself have been investigating the Savile claims for more than two years. A fact noted here –

‘So began a three year unofficial investigation into the Duncroft allegations that had sparked the 2012 nationwide Savile Scandal.

Cameron-Blackie collated further information gathered by three other blogging investigators known as Moor Larkin, Rabbitaway and The Rockphiles.’

Oyston affair and Rosthorn

7 June
Murrin told reporter Andrew Rosthorn that the Private Eye reporter Paul Halloran had said to him, ‘I want a blank cheque made payable to me, cash up front. I want access to your informants.’ Murrin gave Rosthorn the telephone number of John Robertson of the Inland Revenue Enquiry Branch in Liverpool and put Rosthorn in touch with former Oyston employees Bill Nabb, Richard Arnold and Sheila Catlin. Murrin passed on to Rosthorn information about Liverpool drug dealers, accountants and councillors and details of the Comerford Old Bailey case of 1986 in which ‘Bob the Dog’ McGorrin was named as Liverpool’s leading drug dealer under cross-examination. Murrin said Liverpool’s deputy Labour leader Derek Hatton was linked to these men and that developer Ted Spencer, who fled Britain at about same time as McGorrin, had done property deals in Preston with its deputy Labour leader Frank McGrath. Murrin called Bill Harrison and told him a Merseyside reporter was, ‘connecting Derek Hatton with drugs in Liverpool, Bobby McGorrin, the Hughes Twins. He’s coming up with all the same names as I’m coming up with.’
5 July
Murrin wrote to Detective Inspector Frank Whitehead of Greater Manchester Commercial Fraud Squad saying, ‘I have forwarded tapes to Lancashire Police [Operation Angel] as follows: 1. an interview with Mr J. Seddon in which he claims Oyston offered him the sexual services of a woman. 2. A telephone conversation with a Mr McNabb during which he said Oyston had claimed to have compromising photographs of a business associate. ‘There were constant reports of Oyston being provided women by Martin and of Oyston providing women to politicians and business associates. The use of “children” was also the subject of one report. I request a full investigation into the allegations made concerning Martin and Oyston.’

 

6 July
Alerted by Andrew Rosthorn, Dale Campbell-Savours MP put down notice of an Early Day Motion in the House of Commons asking Owen Oyston to state whether Oyston Ltd, registered in the Isle of Man and controlled from Hong Kong by Patrick Diamond had any connection with Oyston Estates Agency Ltd. He also put down a question ‘to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, if all investigations into the tax affairs of Oyston Estates Agency Ltd. and related companies are complete.’
9 July
Rosthorn’s inquiries at Advertee Ltd., an advertising firm recently bought by Oyston from the directors of a bankrupt publishing firm, revealed that ex-policeman Peter Martin was apparently running the firm, with offices in Manchester and Preston. Martin said he was a former fraud squad policeman and ran the Model Team International agency in Manchester. Martin ‘boasted that he was getting £50k per annum as Oyston’s “toe rag”.’ Martin talked of getting calls to take models at night to Oyston in London. Models at the agency had complained to the Advertee staff that they had paid for a ‘course that never materialised and have not been paid.
Oyston and Campbell-Savours MP met in Cumbria, after which Oyston promised a ‘world-wide investigation’ to find who was behind the two ‘Oyston companies’.

 

11 July
Rosthorn reported Halloran’s activities with Murrin to Ian Hislop, editor of Private Eye.
13 July
Oyston served an injunction on Murrin forbidding him from further publishing his Red Rose document.

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

MUSIC box collector and clock maker Keith Harding, whose staff restored antiques for royalty, played a vital role in Britain’s biggest child sex ring.

The pervert met regularly with MPs Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith at his world-renowned workshop. 
The former Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe would also drop by along with key members of the vile Paedophile Information Exchange Steven Adrian Smith and Tom O’Carroll.A PIE list seized in 1984 records Harding, who died from cancer last year aged 82, as member 329 and his address as Hornsey Road, Holloway, north London.He is understood to have kept hidden a list of more than 1,000 PIE members with prominent names including top politicians from the Thatcher era.
One of his staff, who worked for him between 1980 and 1987, said: “Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith were both regular visitors to the shop.Usually they would come in via the side door, other times they would ring the bell at the front entrance and come in.“They’d straight away ask for Keith who would be coming down the stairs.“Then they would then either go up to his office for a private meeting or they’d go out for several hours.”The former worker added: “The shop had many high profile customers, including the Royals, because we were one of the few antique dealers in the world that specialised in restoring clocks, music boxes and automatons.“It’s only now, with what I know about Brittan and Smith, and of course Keith, that has made me wonder what they were doing.

The ex-BBC North West newsreader last month admitted 14 counts of sex abuse on women and girls as young as nine.

And we can reveal they are ­concerned Hall could still evade “true justice” as the judge sentencing him has let sex offenders walk free in the past.

What did Tameside Council know about Stuart Hall’s raping of girls and are they aware of which MP/peer assisted him over decades?

Was the case of rape against Stuart Hall allowed to rest to protect a Labour MP/peer?

Oyston homes in on Spain

23 November 2003

THE former chairman of Blackpool football club, one-time media baron and convicted rapist Owen Oyston has teamed up with a Labour peer to run a Spanish estate-agent.

Oyston, jailed for raping a 16-year-old model, has bought the firm in Marbella on the Costa del Sol. Since his release he has consistently protested his innocence.

The company, which specialises in selling luxury properties around the fashionable resort has been renamed Oyston Steel, and while Oyston is not one of the seven directors named at Companies House, he is the sole owner of the business.

The directors include Lord Pendry, the former Stalybridge and Hyde MP who once served as shadow sports minister. Pendry has been one of Oyston’s loyal supporters and in 1995 he accused two Conservative politicians of masterminding a dirty tricks campaign against him.

Millionaire rapist invited to a gala dinner by Labour

14 July 2007

A convicted rapist attended a fundraising dinner for the Labour Party this week, alongside Gordon Brown, Tony Blair and a string of celebrities.

Owen Oyston, who served three-and-a-half years in jail for attacking a 16-year-old girl, was invited by party chiefs to the £1,000-ahead event at Wembley Stadium.

The disgraced multi-millionaire businessman was filmed at the gala on Thursday which aimed to raise £500,000 to help plug the £20million hole in Labour’s finances.

Also on the guest list were Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson

“The story she told cut away the undeclared certainties of life we all take for granted, rely on. She was a “shy, intelligent, studious, pretty girl”, young for her years, who was going to go to university one day. He was invited to the school to hand out annual prizes and she was one of the prize winners After the ceremony the head summoned her to say Hall was so impressed with her, he had asked her to visit the BBC studios.”
“To have a man of my father’s age take a benevolent interest in me seemed wonderful to a girl of my history,” she writes. She went to the studios encouraged by her mum and head teacher. And went back again, and once more. He seemed caring. Then, having groomed her, she alleges, he got her drunk and started the abuse. She kept going back. His mates, she claims, helped Hall with his filthy hobby.
The sex acts hurt. Sometimes she bled. She hated it”

 

Stuart Hall lived in Stalybridge which is Lord Pendry’s former constituency when he was a Labour MP.
 
Mrs Stuart Hall and Lord Pendry’s wife Moira used to be co-directors of a company called Pendry Hall Associates
In February 1999 Lord Pendry put forward an Early Day Motion congratulating Stuart Hall on 40 years of broadcasting and hailing him as an icon with the youth of today

Dame Alun Roberts‏ @ciabaudo:
It was ‘dirty old man’ Stuart Hall and his misdemeanours who the Gin Goblin, Denby’s niece, rushed to protect.

Wonder why Gin Goblin rushed to defend Stuart Hall, best buddy of Owen Oyston, financier of Denby’s Pennine Radio

Lord Janner’s family to ‘undermine’ sex abuse inquiry strand into their father after being given formal role in investigation

“It gives me the chance to undermine the inquiry from within.” Daniel Janner QC

The family of Lord Janner yesterday vowed to ‘undermine from within’ the Government’s beleaguered child sex abuse inquiry after being given a formal role in the investigation.

The family were granted core participant status which gives them access to documents and to have lawyers attend the inquiry’s hearings.

Anna Raccoon – supporter of Proctor et al

June 5 2017

That would mean spending precious time on it – and there are many good people, Laura Janner, Harvey Proctor, Kato Harris,who have repaid my support of them with nothing but kindness and continued support.

The deathbed candidate: The cancer-sufferer standing against Jeremy Corbyn in his own backyard

  • Cancer sufferer Susanne Cameron-Blackie is standing in the General Election
  • The 68-year-old political blogger wants to use her dying days to fight Labour
  • Ms Cameron-Blackie will challenge Jeremy Corbyn for his seat in Islingto

Jeremy Corbyn claims the NHS isn’t safe in Tory hands. But the truth is, it’s not safe under Labour, either. The crisis that is threatening to destroy it gets deeper every day for reasons Corbyn hasn’t started to think about – and that’s why I’m running against him.’

Susanne Cameron-Blackie, better known as the political blogger Anna Raccoon, is speaking in her cottage kitchen, blessed with a stunning view across the Norfolk Broads. She is in a hospital bed, propped up by pillows. It is likely to be her death bed, her last resting place before the cancer that has ravaged her body finally claims her.

Yet it is from here that she will register this week as an independent candidate to fight Corbyn for his parliamentary seat in Islington North.

Susanne does not know whether she will survive until Election Day on June 8. But she is determined to use every moment she has left to fight Corbyn

On a bedside table are some of the drugs keeping at bay the agony caused by the cancer which has spread through much of her body: Fentanyl, a clinical form of heroin, and the animal tranquilliser ketamine. A team of nurses visits every day.

Susanne does not know whether she will survive until Election Day on June 8. But she is determined to use every moment she has left to fight Corbyn.

‘I may be the first parliamentary candidate forced to lie down, rather than stand, for office. But I’m determined to do something useful with what’s left of my life.

‘I’m taking on Corbyn in his political comfort zone. He talks about shaping the future. As things stand, the future for the NHS is to vanish up its own backside because of the money going on lawyers and damages.’

Her campaign is based on the urgent need for sweeping reform of the personal injury legal system, to safeguard the NHS from the crippling and ever-increasing burden of medical negligence lawsuits.

Last year, NHS Resolution, the body which handles such claims, revealed that cases arising from incidents up to the middle of 2016 are set to soak up a staggering £56 billion in lawyers’ fees and damages by the time they are settled – half NHS England’s annual budget.

Susanne, 68, has battled her illness, leiomyosarcoma, a rare soft tissue cancer, for six years. After almost killing her several times, it has now attacked her spine, rendering her immobile.

Susanne Nundy is the name used by British Libertarian blogger, Anna Raccoon, more popularly known for her posts about the Madeleine McCann and Hollie Greig stories

Nundy and Greg Watkins are alleged to have co-managed a disinformation campaign around the Hollie Greig case

Why did ‘Susanne Nundy’ or whoever she is – use the email address courtofprotection.co.uk?

The Court of Protection as it exists now, was set up by Jack Straw and New Labour in 2005 (created under the Mental Capacity Act 2005).

In the Inexorable choices‘ post Nundy says she was in office in 2003 (just as Blair ditched the office of Lord Chancellor) and yet in an email she sent me yesterday, Raccoon insists she had resigned the office in 2000 . But even Chris Carter, her replacement in 2004, insists she was working at this time.

Interestingly the email address alleged to have ‘outed’ Anna Raccoon (and I use the term cautiously) was left on a website for Old Scholars at St Christopher’s School in Letchworth, Hertfordshire – an old and respected boarding school set up by Beatrice Ensor – a close friend of Fabian Socialist and Freemason, Annie Besant and sponsored by Helena Blavtasky’s Theosophical Society.

I’m also finding it difficult to reconcile Susanne Nundy’s celebrated ‘Libertarian’ ideals with the idea of her working with such a crudely draconian, insidious and cheerfully Orwellian institution as the Court of Protection. I’ve seen her attempts to address this fairly awkward little paradox in her blog. She says it wasn’t an invention of ‘Nu Labour’ and Jack Straw – but that’s just being pedantic.

It had existed in one form or another for years, but New Labour extended its powers and its reach exponentially in 2005 (whilst simultaneously incapacitating the power of carers and relatives). It was rebranded, relaunched. According to a Daily Telegraph report, the Court of Protection’s expansion had been controversial’ not only for its extensive powers but also for the fact that almost all of its hearings take place in private‘.

Moore Laine sounds like Anna Racoon who’s real name is Susanne Nundy but who uses her maiden name of Suzanne Cameron-Blackie

She uses a lot of names and works for M15. Her and her little group are specialist child abuse debunkers.

Raccoon attending Duncroft  is not a surprise as I am told it was used to recruit highly intelligent but very seriously disturbed girls for work in the intelligence services.

http://parker-joseph.com/pjcjournal/2011/04/16/anna-raccoon-taken-at-face-value/

Crushed: Susanne, pictured above in her 20s, was a victim of medical negligence in 1973 when she was given a hysterectomy at the Westminster Hospital when she was admitted for a ‘dilation and curettage’, a minor operation used to deal with heavy periods

But she shows no sign of giving up. ‘No politician has ever tackled this issue, least of all Corbyn,’ she says. ‘All Labour talks about is the amount of money going in through the NHS’s front door – ignoring the haemorrhaging out the back.’

Just how pressing the issue is was brought home to Susanne last month. After spending days in the cancer high-dependency unit at the Norwich and Norfolk Hospital, she had been prescribed the Fentanyl and ketamine, but an error by a nurse meant she was given a tiny dose of a much weaker drug – a prescription meant for another patient.

She shudders at the memory. ‘I can’t even begin to describe the pain I was in,’ she says. ‘It was a descent into hell.’ No wonder: a scan revealed that the erosion of one of her vertebrae had left her spinal cord exposed.

But for Susanne, worse was to come. ‘Excruciating as it was, the mistake was recognised and put right. But afterwards, I had a visit from someone in the hospital’s legal department. She wanted to know if had I engaged a lawyer, and was I planning to sue?

‘I was flabbergasted. Why? What would be the point? I know why the mistake was made: because the nurses in that unit are rushed off their feet. If I were to sue, the only thing that would change would be my husband’s bank account in several years, long after I’m gone.

‘If I sued, I would be taking away yet more money from the NHS, so making it more likely that a future patient would endure a similar ordeal. This is the point Corbyn and Labour don’t get. They say they are socialists, yet they’re doing nothing about a system which treats the NHS as if it were a manufacturer making faulty products, instead of a provider of a vital social good.’

It wasn’t the first time Susanne had become a victim of medical negligence. In 1973, for reasons never explained, she was given a hysterectomy at the Westminster Hospital when she was admitted for a ‘dilation and curettage’, a minor operation used to deal with heavy periods.

‘I was only 23 – it left me psychologically crushed. Yet 45 years ago, people didn’t think of suing the NHS. One thing I do know is money would have made no difference. I picked myself up and moved on.’

It was not until she was in her 50s that she went to Aberystwyth University and obtained a double first in law. But by this time, she had spent years working for the Lord Chancellor’s department as an investigator for the Court of Protection, the tribunal which decides when people cannot administer their affairs through physical or mental incapacity.

‘As I thought about what had happened at the Norwich and Norfolk, I realised that through my work, I had witnessed some of the system’s worst abuses – in cases where incapacitated people were suing for medical negligence and getting enormous settlements. Then Mrs May announced the Election. I knew this was my chance.’

Among the most crucial reforms, she says, is the repeal of a 1948 law which means, bizarrely, that when patients sue the NHS, their damages are calculated on the basis they will pay for private healthcare for the rest of their lives – even though many will continue to be treated in the public sector, at public cost.

‘I saw this time and again,’ Susanne says. ‘Someone would get a huge settlement, but not fork out a penny on care. Meanwhile big awards, running into millions, are assessed on the basis that the beneficiary will live for several decades. But if they die a few years later, nothing goes back to the NHS. They can leave it to their relatives or a dogs’ home. This has to change.’

However, the biggest change she wants is more fundamental: an end to the legal lottery that means two patients with identical needs will be treated differently – one receiving millions, and the other nothing. ‘Take, for example, a cerebral palsy patient. The case will probably come down to something in the medical notes that a lawyer can argue means the midwife was absent for 19 minutes. These claims aren’t based on need, but on a narrow, legal definition of fault.

‘So they drag on for years. And it means a doctor or a hospital can never say sorry, which is all many patients want – because to do so will mean admitting liability.’

The last time the Government appointed a commission to examine this situation in 1978, it recommended a ‘no fault’ system be investigated.

Tomorrow, armed with the necessary ten local resident signatures and a campaign address in Mr Corbyn’s constituency, Susanne’s candidacy will be registered with the returning officer.

‘Just imagine: if some of the billions going to law firms and left legacies could be put into patient care, what a difference that would make. I will fight to my dying breath to make people – including Jeremy Corbyn – recognise this fact.’

Jimmy Savile’s Duncroft school victims set to sue Barnardo’s and Mind

One woman claims she was abused between 1976 and 1980 when it was run by Barnardo’s and three others say they were molested between 1973 and 1976 when Mind ran the school.

Victims from Duncroft ­previously described how Savile sexually assaulted them after being allowed to stay overnight by the headmistress.

Child abuse ‘cover-up’ claims after Barnardo’s admits systematically destroying files

June 3 2017

CHILDREN’S charity Barnardo’s systematically destroyed records at its residential care homes where child sex abuse occurred over three decades – but claimed to victims that files had been lost in a flood.

The organisation’s solicitor made the shock admission to the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry. Victims of abuse say they have been left “distressed” by the revelation that the charity had a policy of disposing of files when they shut care homes where abuse happened in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

Groups representing survivors have accused Barnardo’s of “covering their tracks”

Barnardo’s close links with royalty started when our work began in 1867, and still continues today with Her Majesty the Queen as our patron and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall as our President. In fact, Barnardo’s has had a royal patron since 1902 and royal presidents from 1923.

There have been a variety of royal events over the centuries ranging from 100 children attending George V’s silver jubilee in 1935, to royal visits to many of our projects and the opportunity for many children Barnardo’s has worked with over the decades to meet our royal supporters.

Was this research on Duncroft & Savile allegations ever published? It’s closed now and received almost £50k

 

^ Research related to the blog of former Duncroft School resident (known as the blogger Anna Raccoon) who denied that Jimmy Savile had been at Duncroft when she was there – despite claims by her roommate who said she had been assaulted by Jimmy Savile.

Anna Raccoon has since described how she noticed that a woman who roomed with her in the Wedgewood Dormitory at Duncroft in 1965 was claiming online to have been assaulted by Jimmy Savile in the dormitory when she was 15 years old:

How could I have been so unobservant as to not notice such a comment-worthy event as a major celebrity galloping around the building unescorted? There had to be some mistake in the reporting. Or maybe in my maths? I rechecked all my fingers, yep I was definitely there in 1965. Except for one month at the end of the year – but I was back four months later.

link

Here’s some of her “work”

from raccoon….2013/03/12

What have we here? An entry in the Metropolitan Police Services Paedophile Intelligence Unit from 1964. In a book also dated 1981. So these matters were taken seriously enough in 1964 to warrant an independent unit, eh? Or backdated in 1981?

“BATTERSEA BRIDGE ROAD, (WA) – 4 older girls & youth named [name] (? Homosexual) live at – Jimmy SAVILLE (sic) well known disc jockey frequents –used by absconders from DUNCROFT APP SCHOOL”.

Wow, that’s odd. 1964, just the time when I was first an absconder from Duncroft – and living in Battersea Bridge Road!

In a house rented by four older girls, who ran the fan club for The Animals, and one of the girls was Don Arden’s secretary and frequently on Top of the Pops… couldn’t be the same house could it?

Notorious Don Arden father of Sharon Osbourne.

Behind the glitz of Top Of The Pops were serious, sometimes villainous men like Arden making mountains of money which they were determined to hang on to. He would beat the other guy, he would say, by “fair means or foul”.

…charged with the kidnapping, blackmail, torture and the assault of the former employee.

Amazingly, he got off.

Don also became involved with the Republican Party and Ronald Reagan. When Reagan became President, Don was invited to the White House.

Don Arden – associate of the Krays – who ran a paedophile ring

 

Anna Raccoon

My only connection with those girls was that my then boyfriend, Joss, knew them, and they had agreed that I could temporarily sleep on their sofa – which I did.

One of the girls, Dawn Voice-Cooper, was secretary to Don Arden, at the time the largest promoter of rock bands in London. We stayed friends for the next ten years, until she moved to Spain.

I am aware that there had been two Duncroft girls, before my time – ie several years older than me, who had become prostitutes after they left

Had I managed to miss being mauled by Savile yet again?

I think I now hold the world record for managing to be in the most places where Savile is alleged to have abused and never even managed to meet him, never mind been abused by him.

“All men were coloured.” Nope, must have been another group of Duncroft girls, the house I was living in was definitely not being used as a brothel, nor were there any coloured men anywhere near it. Odd that we never bumped into each other though – perhaps they were much older than I.

Normandy
Ilona Guest’s 21st Birthday Party

^ Celebrating her 21st birthday in great style on midsummer’s night, Ilona Guest held a masked ball at her mother’s stunning 18th-century chateau in Normandy. Guests of all ages, all nationalities and all sexual proclivities led to frequent cases of mistaken identity. The chatelaine, Venetia Wimborne, did not initially recognize her own son, Grant Barker, behind his golden mask; Vincent Poklewski – Koziell confused everyone by changing his mask frequently – one minute an 18th century courtier the next Coco the Clown. Thankfully, the masks were discarded after the first dance. Ilona’s usually reserved brother Ivor Wimborne gave a moving speech about how his little sister arrived in the world while he was learning to fly-fish. A spectacular electric storm gave way to rain-dancing till dawn, leaving just enough time for things to be put in order for dejeuner sur l’herbe the following day.

One typical vice president of the Blackie Foundation Trust is Enid Segall, who can also boast of being the president of the European Federation of Homeopathic Patients’ Associations.

Here Enid works closely with this Association’s secretary, Sato Liu, who recently served as the Special Projects Manager for Prince Charles’s now defunct quack outfit, the Foundation For Integrated Health, and prior to that as the executive director of the lobbying group known as the Natural Medicines Society (1988-2005).

The Playland Cover-Up

In 1975, Scotland Yard carried out a high-profile child abuse investigation which centred on the Playland amusement arcade near Piccadilly Circus, and involved the sexual exploitation of homeless boys. The investigation led to five convictions in September 1975. Four of the men convicted were ‘nobodies’, but one – Charles Hornby –  was a pillar of the Establishment. He was a  wealthy socialite, a Lloyd’s underwriter, and an old Etonian, “who on occasion had Prince Charles among his dinner guests”.

The four ‘nobodies’ later had their sentences reduced in mysterious circumstances. One of them, David Archer, alleged that Hornby was far from being the only VIP involved in the Playland scandal.

Last night Archer said he would present the police with a dossier naming the ‘millionaires and titled and influential people’ involved in the Playland affair. He added: ‘I believe there was a tremendous cover-up to protect these people.’

A clue as to the identity of one of these ‘titled and influential people’ appeared nearly a decade later with the publication of Philip Ziegler’s biography of Lord Mountbatten.

In 1975, Mountbatten was told that gossip had linked him to a homosexual scandal. He recorded in his diary: “I might have been accused of many things but hardly the act of homosexuality.”

Conference Panel on Reducing False Allegations

Dr Mark Smith:

Basically Susanne got in touch with me a couple of years ago now saying that she had all this alternative story on this Savile case that she was starting to blog about and that she wanted to give it over to a good home.

So Ros, myself and a couple of my colleagues at Edinburgh actually managed to get some money from the Economic and Social Research Council to collate Susanne’s information.

Here’s another version:

From convicted paedophile/PIE member Tom O’Carroll:

Yes, Anna, or Susanne, is right at the heart of this story. Her wonderful, detailed, sceptical analyses of the claims against Savile have been highlighted here at Heretic TOC on several occasions, so I am sure we will all be delighted to hear that her work has won academic appreciation and government funding for a follow-up project.

In 2013  Anna Raccoon  sent an email to Professor Viviene Cree at the Edinburgh University School of Social and Political Science, explaining the situation and saying she hoped the university would provide a good home for her archive. That summer the Economic and Social Research Council activated its Urgency Grants Mechanism to form a research team for the recovery and collation of documents and the information stored on Anna Raccoon’s computer in the Dordogne. The full story of the research team and its project are set out in the Lancashire Magazine’s article and is recommended reading.

Hi Steve. Can you tell me where to locate this resource? Thanks.

Hi there. Best to contact the lead researcher, Mark Smith. Details here:

Career History

I worked and managed in residential school and care settings and in secure accommodation over a period of almost 20 years.

Mark is Head of Social Work and Senior Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh.

He spent almost 20 years as a practitioner and manager in List D schools/secure accommodation, and his PhD was essentially an oral history charting changing discourses of care in Scottish residential schools.

He has research and writing interests across a wide range of residential child care policy and practice, especially around concepts of care and upbringing. He has a particular interest in European models of social pedagogy and in applying these in a Scottish context.

Keywords:  Youth crime, residential child care, Kilbrandon, social education, false allegations

List D schools – like Bryn etc – Home Office run til they  pass the buck.


 

How I came to be in this field
My mum and dad both went into teaching later in life and I was minded to follow them in that direction. History teachers, though, were ten-a-penny when I graduated so I worked in a bar for a while. I then responded to a job advert for a temporary residential social worker. I think the school needed some younger legs for its football team, which was run by an aging though still mad keen Head of Education. So I got taken on and as so often happens, I stayed. During my time there I took time out to do social work training at the University of Stirling, where I came across Leon Fulcher, who was Director of Social Work Education there. Fifteen years or so later Leon, who by that stage had moved to New Zealand, was responsible for putting me in touch with Thom Garfat, who has nagged me ever since to produce a monthly column for CYC-Online.
Favourite cyc experience
I’ve had a few. In 1990 a couple of colleagues and myself took a group of boys to the World cup in Italy. Overall that probably rates as my favourite experience. I wrote about it in one of my CYC-Online columns: see http://www.cyc-net.org/cycol-0608-smith.html

I was brought up and remain a Catholic and have encountered enough good priests along the way to keep me clinging to the Church’s social teaching if not always other aspects of Catholicism.

The De La Salle Brothers, with whom I worked for 8 years provided my formative experiences in child and youth care. Frank Rochford, the Head of Education and part-time football team manager mentioned above, was the wisest boss and colleague. Eddie McCabe and Onanda Randall, both sadly now dead, are the most charismatic figures I have come across – they touched lives.

Leon Fulcher introduced me to the literature on child and youth care and has been immensely supportive ever since. Through Leon I have become part of the wider child and youth care community. I remember one memorable night in Ireland drinking Guinness with Leon, Thom Garfat and Jack Phelan and a group of Irish practitioners.

I have been blessed with intelligent and supportive colleagues wherever I have worked.

Students on the MSc in Residential child care at the University of Strathclyde helped me form or reinforce my views on residential care.

Margaret Jervis aka Clare Jervis

She was journalist for Social Work Today in the 80’s and early 90’s.

A contemporary of Peter Righton

After Peter Righton’s home was raided in 1992, Social Work Today printed this short report.

It’s a strange article in that it fails to mention Righton’s long association with Social Work Today and the dozens of columns that he wrote for the magazine.

Ozzie Man – “Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
annaraccoon.co.uk/2014/11/…/ozzie-man-look-on-my-works-ye-mighty-and-despair/

Nov 5, 2014 – A sorely missed commentator on this blog is Margaret Jervis who had a …. Folk like Peter Righton, doyen of the UK Social Work Establishment …

 

Margaret Jervis:

The Let Our Voices Emerge (LOVE) group and British False Memory Society criticised the commission and claimed the scale of alleged abuse in Ireland was incredulous and caused irreversible damage to those accused.

The claims sparked fury among abuse victims who branded it an outrageous attack against all Irish people.

The Survivors of Child Abuse (SOCA) held a protest against the two groups as they met in Dublin and angrily hit out at claims they had conjured up defective and exaggerated memories.

Margaret Jervis, legal advisor to the False Memory Society, linked Ireland’s large number of outstanding child abuse complaints to the Government’s “open-ended” compensation scheme and its definitions of abuse.

She described the therapy system as “a machine for manufacturing false allegations.”

LOVE promotes a positive image of religious orders in children’s homes and works to protect innocent people accused of abuse.

Founder member Florence Horsman-Hogan said people were being given incentives to exaggerate and fabricate claims of abuse.

“We believe around 30% of abuse allegations in Ireland are false…”

Ms Jervis infuriated genuine victims when she said: “The Irish are great storytellers and many, it seems, are making extreme allegations.

“The further you go back in years with allegations of abuse, the taller the stories become.”

http://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/child-abuse-victims-accused-of-false-claims-134754.html


“Agenda, bias, call it what you will, Margaret, but you are a professional CSA refuter, paid to help deny CSA claims.
I’ve been reading many of your articles and they all, unsurprisingly, have the same theme, dogged denial or discreditation of CSA. Cleveland was a particular interest, many now consider to be a Psyop.
Spin and propaganda is rife in the world of CSA, particularly VIP abuse.”

Did BigEars urge Savile to get involved with the Cleveland scandal? See what it was all about? If so, why? And with what intention?

 

Did a local vicar in Cleveland write to BigEars telling of children taken away from parents and asking for his help?

 

What did BigEars, Ball’s ‘loyal friend’, know about his perverted ways and did he help to keep Ball in the country?

But we now know that Couldn’t-Carey was involved in pulling strings. And I bet BigEars was as well!

So the Gin Goblin met up with Savile’s cousin who has boxes of savile’s correspondence.

Who vetted evidence for Clarke Osbourne in the Cleveland case, Gin Goblin (Hewson) ? I hear many boxes were returned to McKenna so they needed help!


Clare Jervis‏ @mscjervis

Former staff journalist for Social Work Today

http://www.richardwebster.net/shieldfieldhowdidithappen.html

Richard Webster in 2002 with mention of Margaret Jervis and British False Memory Society.

Mr McKelvie was a child protection manager in Hereford and Worcester and worked on the conviction of paedophile Peter Righton -a former consultant to the National Children’s Bureau.

Righton, who is now dead, was also a founding member of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), before he was convicted of importing child pornography.

…Mr McKelvie said the evidence went further than just Righton and claimed he told police in 2012 there were seven boxes of potential evidence being stored by West Mercia Police. He said the evidence included letters between Righton and other alleged paedophiles.

He said: “I believe that there is strong evidence, and an awful lot of information that can be converted into evidence if it is investigated properly, that there’s been an extremely powerful elite among the highest levels of the political classes for as long as I have been alive – I’m 65 now.

“We are looking at the Lords, we are looking at the Commons, we are looking at the judiciary, we are looking at all institutions where there will be a small percentage of paedophiles and a slightly larger percentage of people who have known about it but have felt that in terms of their own self-interest and self-preservation and for political party reasons it’s been safer for them to cover it up rather than deal with it.”

Dame Alun Roberts‏@ciabado

Interesting read on Social Work Today and Islington connections.

ONE What is it about Islington, that den of iniquity? Here’s an attempt to join a few dots …

TWO Nick Stacey, a Director of Social Services, instructed his staff not to report alleged paedophiles within Kent Social Services.

 

THREE Stacey was very close to Peter Righton. Stacey, formerly a vicar, was based in Maidstone, where Righton also lived for a time.

 

FOUR They cemented their friendship via Social Work Today and were on a steering ctte to train those working with disturbed young people.

FIVE Also in this group of 6 were John Rea Price, Director of Islington for 19 years while every one of its kids’ homes was run by paedos.

SIX When Liz Davies blew the whistle on Islington, Rea Price quickly legged it to become CEO of NCB, also based in Islington.

SEVEN Also close to Righton and Stacey was Chris Andrews, Chair of BASW and another force within SWT alongside Margaret Claire Jervis.

Read here how Andrews rushed to the defence of paedophile Peter Righton:

Chris Andrews, of BASW, described Righton at the time of his arrest as follows: He [Righton] is a highly respected figure within the residential field, particularly working with highly disturbed children. He is very much concerned with therapeutic work in child care’ (cited in Burden and Rose, ‘Porn Squad quiz Child Care Expert’).

EIGHT Margaret Claire Jervis went on to become Barbara Hewson’s close friend and fellow activist in the false allegations campaign.

NINE When Righton was arrested in 1992, Chris Andrews, who spoke for BASW, was one of the first to jump to Righton’s defence.


TEN Incredible correspondence between Chris Andrews and Tom O’Carroll reveals Andrews in his official capacity representing social workers

Here is the nasty Tom O’Carroll in correspondence with Andrews.

So Chris Andrews, GenSec of BASW and close associate of Hewson buddy Claire Jervis, was in contact with PIE and O’Carroll. Well, well, well!

Here again is Jervis associate Andrews writing to O’Carroll, boadly agreeing with PIE:

ELEVEN In it, he supports PIE’s aims and asks to become a subscriber to their magazine , Magpie.

TWELVE Magpie made no attempt to disguise its aims, even containing pages of adverts for paedophiles to link up and share chiildren.

 

Complimentary tickets to PIE event from convicted paedo Tom O’Carroll to Chris Andrews of BASW, colleague of Hewson friend Claire Jervis.

I wonder how close Jervis herself was to Righton and PIE?

 
 Isn’t it interesting how Clare Jervis pops up everywhere where there is a child abuse scandal to rubbish: Northern Ireland, Cleveland, Savile …

Cleveland – Savile was there. Who sent him? Ha! Your little chum told me fuckers! False allegations  my left foot! Lost the passwords, Liar

Cleveland, two nonces in family?

Who vetted evidence for Clarke Osbourne in the Cleveland case, Gin Goblin? I hear many boxes were returned to McKenna so they needed help!

I’m told many boxes were returned containing too-hot-to-handle letters, including correspondence between Savile and BigEars re Cleveland.


Wonder where all Jimmy Savile’s diaries have gone? Why was Savile in Cleveland?

 You know if you have evidence of a crime and you hide it? Deliberately. Is that perverting the course of justice?

The diaries are vital evidence and could lead to other potential abusers that are alive.

 

Indeed, they were vital to his movements. Did police retrieve them from his secretary’s garage? Or were they given back to the family?

Diaries last seen in Savile Documentary when his Stoke Mandeville Secretary took them home to her garage. Where are they now?

 

Would the founding director of Radio Pennine, Richard Denby, have known Jimmy Savile, a man with strong links to several radio stations?

Sir Richard Denby’s niece Barbara Hewson allegedly met up with Jimmy Savile’s niece Amanda McKenna (who was named in Jimmy Savile’s will.

AnnaStillHereRaccoon @AnnaRaccoon2017

who they are so when they try to write about JK they will have the same treatment I’ve had. Not hide behind false names. They call him ‘Sir’ Same as Savile. They had meeting up in Leeds. Amanda, Johnny, Hewson, rabbit don’t know about moor or jervis, can’t remember.

Very interesting that @AnnaRaccoon2017 is not retracting her claim that the Gin Goblin (Barbara Hewson) met with Amanda McKenna, Savile’s niece, in Leeds!

Equally interesting that the Gin Goblin has NOT denied that this meeting took place.

Jerry Sadowitz performance from 1987 where he describes Jimmy Savile as a danger to children…

‘There have been serious allegations of child abuse in Cleveland. To my mind there is only one way to find out whether this is true or not and that’s to . . . CALL IN JIMMY SAVILE! You can’t afford to f* about! Bring in an expert!* Am I right? A friend of mine reckons Jimmy Savile is a paedophile. Rubbish — he’s a child-bender! That’s why he does all the f**** charity work: it’s to gain public sympathy for when his f***** case comes up.’

That show was called Total Abuse. And it was. Unrepeatable jokes about Princess Diana, Terry Waite, Norman Tebbit, Nelson Mandela.

One presumes he had heard the rumours and was bold enough to put them out there. The point is, what about the rest of them?

If Sadowitz, a fringe comic with no connections to TV or radio at the time, had heard enough to joke about Savile in 1987, it is fair to presume his more famous contemporaries knew, too. This would include people who have done some serious moralising in the media of late.

Cleveland: Unspeakable Truths

The headline summed it up: “Is this the film that should never have been made ?”.

Just as telling was that the article under it – in the TV Times – was the only national press coverage of the film. Ten years after the Cleveland Child Abuse Crisis not a single newspaper reported on a documentary which told – for the first time – the truth about what had happened to the children at the heart of a “scandal” which had gripped and divided the entire country. Not for nothing was the film called “Cleveland: Unspeakable Truths”.

For those too young to recall it – and for those who still do – it’s worth recalling the events as they unfolded.

In the spring of 1987, 121 children from the (then) county of Cleveland – an area of some 583 square km and including the economically depressed towns of Hartlepool, Redcar and Middlesbrough – were taken into temporary local authority care on suspicion of having been sexually abused. Many – in fact the majority – of the children were very young: most were pre-pubescent and in some cases so young (or developmentally delayed) as to be pre-verbal.

This was not just the biggest sexual abuse case Britain had then encountered but the very first involving multiple victims and multiple perpetrators. Others – Rochdale, Orkney, Broxtowe – would follow on in quick succession, but Cleveland was the first and it set the template.

Newspaper coverage that spring led readers to believe that the children had been “snatched” from their parents as the result of a new and untested physical diagnosis – Reflex Anal Dilatation. The press – led by the Daily Mail – reported that two paediatricians, Dr Marietta Higgs and Dr Geoffrey Wyatt, who had recently arrived at Middlesbrough General Hospital had begun using RAD to diagnose sexual abuse on children who had been brought to the hospital for petty and unrelated problems – “a child with a sore finger” became the familiar trope of these stories.

Worse, or so the papers claimed, RAD involved looking up inside children’s bottoms and was a new and “experimental” technique. Cleveland’s senior police surgeon – a local GP called Alistair Irvine, made a series of statements to the media in which he damned both RAD and Drs Higgs and Wyatt. He was backed by local MP Stuart Bell who gave a succession of highly inflammatory interviews to local television stations.

The media response was swift and overwhelming. Reporters from national newspapers, radio and television descended on Middlesbrough. The Daily Mail alone sent seven. And what were these journalists looking for ? One thing and one thing only – “innocent parents” wrongly parted from their children. And these parents – aided by Stuart Bell who had become their self-appointed champion – quickly told (and frequently sold) their stories. In a matter of weeks Cleveland went from being a small local story to a national “scandal”. All the papers and broadcasters repeated the parents claims and Stuart Bell’s allegations, and viciously attacked the paediatricians. They, along with Cleveland Council’s most senior child abuse advisor Sue Richardson, were ordered by their employers not to give any interviews or make any comment to the media.

The Tory government set up a judicial enquiry under Lord Justice (Elizabeth) Butler Sloss. The enquiry sat for a year, heard evidence from parents, social services, police, doctors, nurses and – without any apparent unease – from a champion of paedophile rights, Ralph Underwager. It cost £5 million.

But there was one very odd aspect to the enquiry. Its remit from Whitehall prohibited it from asking – let alone answering – the most important question of all: how many of the 121 children at the centre of the crisis had been abused ?

By the time the enquiry report was close to publication I had made a high-profile documentary (and written a book) about child pornography. I approached Marietta Higgs to ask if she would, on the day of publication, be interviewed by me for ITN News. After a week of negotiation it was agreed that she would do one television interview (with me), one radio interview for Woman’s Hour and speak to one newspaper (The Guardian).

I was freelance and arranged to do the interview at the studios of Tyne Tees, ITV’s franchise in the north-east. It would be quicker to feed the piece down to ITN from Newcastle than to film it and bike the tape down to London.

I read the Butler Sloss report from cover to cover. I was – given the prevailing public story – surprised to see that it did not suggest anywhere that Drs Higgs and Wyatt had wrongly diagnosed the 121 children, nor that RAD had been the sole medical evidence in most cases. The report also made clear that no child was recorded as a suspected victim of sexual abuse on medical evidence alone: Butler-Sloss had heard a wealth of testimony from social services indicating that in the vast majority of cases, there were serious concerns about the children’s welfare long before they were seen at Middlesbrough General Hospital.

The report did criticise the doctors for the problems their diagnoses caused at the hospital which had been overwhelmed. It placed restrictions on them working on child abuse cases. But it reserved its most serious and stinging criticism for Stuart Bell MP, who it found had made false ad inflammatory statements about the parents, the children and the doctors – and refused to correct them even when presented with the evidence. It also strongly criticised Alastair Irvine, the police surgeon who had been instrumental in sparking the crisis.

The headlines that afternoon (and the next morning) were extraordinary: they bore no resemblance to the findings of the report. “Sack Her” [Marietta Higgs] was one of the more moderate. I interviewed Dr Higgs – calmly and politely for half an hour. I put to her all the criticism in the report and the complaints made by the parents. She answered honestly and frankly.

While the tape was being fed to London, I was approached by Tyne Tees news journalists and by the news anchor. The former screamed at me that I had “let Higgs off the hook”; the anchor threatened to beat me up. ITN ran the interview that evening.

Eight years later I was working at Yorkshire Television’s documentaries department – the best place in the world to make serious and important films. I had produced one such film two years earlier about a major child sexual abuse network in the United States [Conspiracy of Silence – there are references on this site to this] which had been pulled by its funder, The Discovery Channel. Perhaps that should have warned me.

I happened to meet Sue Richardson at a child abuse conference during the summer of 1996. In passing she mentioned that she was very concerned about what had happened to the Cleveland children. For the next six months I quietly spoke to as many people involved in the crisis as I could. A picture quickly emerged: many – probably most – of the 121 children had been returned to their parents, even where there was clear evidence of sexual abuse. In an alarming number of cases there was a convicted sex offender living in the house – one of the trigger factors for Sue Richardson’s initial concerns. The court system had broken down under the weight of hostile news reporting: one judge refused to allow evidence “relating to children’s bottoms” in his court room. Children had been sent back to parents about whom there was a lengthy history of concern. And then there was RAD itself.

It turned out that this was not some new and experimental technique, as alleged by the police surgeon and Stuart Bell, but was more than 100 years old and was formally included in the Association of Police Surgeons’ own manual as a diagnostic tool raising suspicions of sexual abuse and requiring further enquiries if it was observed.

Late in 1997, with the wholehearted agreement of Yorkshire Television’s Head of Documentaries, I pitched the idea for a documentary about Cleveland to Channel 4. It agreed to commission the film and we went into production: Channel 4 was to pay to Yorkshire TV the sum of £150,00 to produce it and a first instalment was transferred to the company’s coffers.

My colleagues and I spent nearly three months researching and investigating. We met and informally interviewed everyone who would speak to us. Stuart Bell MP and Alastair Irvine refused point blank.

We also advertised for parents who had been caught up in the crisis. Only two came forward: a mother whose children had been sexually abused by their father (he was convicted of the abuse) and ho had tried – in vain – to get her story heard by reporters back in 1987, and a couple whose children had been among the first to be taken into care. We were also contacted by a young woman from the area who had been sexually abused by her father at the time but who was not part of the 121 taken into care.

At some point a large brown parcel arrived for us at Yorkshire TV’s studios. Anonymously-sent, it contained all the social service evidence relating to the 121 children which had been presented in camera to Butler-Sloss. This posed a dilemma: although the children’s identities had been hidden by code letters in these documents, simply by receiving them – let alone broadcasting their contents -we were committing a serious offence. Yet the evidence in the documents clearly answered the question Butler-Sloss had been forced to duck: had these children been abused ? The papers showed that the children had long histories of involvement with social services and painstakingly documented injuries. In many cases a convicted paedophile was living in their houses, and many had made very convincing disclosures of sexual activity with adults. In the end, and with Yorkshire TV’s backing, we decided they were too important to throw away.

We drove to Northallerton on a Wednesday evening, ready to begin filming the following day. At 6pm I was phoned by Yorkshire Television’s Head of Documentaries: the company’s Director of Programmes – essentially his direct boss – had issued an instruction that we were to abandon all filming and that I was to tell Channel 4 that Yorkshire TV would not make the documentary. It turned out that Stuart Bell MP had leaned on the Director of Programmes. It was a surreal – and deeply disturbing – moment. When I spoke to Channel 4 its commissioning editor couldn’t believe his ears.

Happily, Chanel 4 was then a far more serious broadcaster than it is now. Within days it had brokered a deal whereby my own production company would make the film; I would take leave of absence from Yorkshire TV to do so, and – under pain of having its lucrative daytime Countdown quiz-programme terminated by Channel 4 – Yorkshire TV would then take me back on a longer contract. The row even made the front page of the industry’s trade magazine.

But our troubles were nothing compared to those of Drs Higgs and Wyatt or Sue Richardson. The health authorities for whom the paediatricians worked refused them permission to be interviewed, and Sue Richardson was informed by her then employer – a child welfare charity – that if she appeared in it she would be dismissed. She resigned instead – and her interview was vital in conveying the truth about Cleveland.

Two telling sections of the film summed up the entire crisis. The first was a section which showed file footage of one of the Cleveland parents making an emotional appeal on a breakfast television programme: in it – and egged on by host Anne Diamond – he said he had never abused his children and demanded they be allowed home. Yet the truth was that he had been convicted of buggering his children – sometimes in front of his wife: apparently that truth was ignored by Ms Diamond and her team.

The second was the discovery that in the wake of the Butler-Sloss enquiry, the Department of Health ordered all records of all the children as a group to be destroyed. When we asked for an explanation, the Department refused to comment.

Just what was Cleveland really about ? For me it was clear: it was about the plight of children – some just toddlers – who were abused and – briefly – rescued; then re-abused by a child protection system which could not bear the pressure from politicians and press. The truth of what happened to those children was too difficult to hear. Which is why we called the film Cleveland: Unspeakable Truths.

Middlesbrough diocese:

Pedophile priest, Father Joseph O'Brien

Pedophile priest, Father Joseph O’Brien

A SENIOR staff member sacked from a Roman Catholic children’s home for sexually abusing boys went on to become a priest in the same diocese

 

St William's

 

Father Joseph O’Brien, who served as a priest in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, for 15 years, had previously been dismissed for abusing a number of boys at the St William’s children’s home in Market Weighton, East Yorkshire.

The case casts another shadow over the Roman Catholic Church, which has been the subject of a series of accusations that it harboured priests who abused children.

It also poses questions for Humberside Police, which was made aware of Father O’Brien’s actions but did not interview or arrest him when his history was flagged up in a formal witness statement in 2002. Father O’Brien died in January last year.

He was sacked from his position as deputy principal at St William’s in 1965 and escorted from the building. At that time, Father O’Brien was a member of the De La Salle Brotherhood, a Catholic lay order which ran the home, and was known as Brother Ambrose O’Brien.

The dismissal was formally reported to the board of managers at the home, which was part of the Middlesbrough Diocese.

But in 1972, while still a member of the De La Salle Brotherhood, he asked the then Bishop of Middlesbrough, the late Bishop John McClean, if he could train to become a priest.

The diocese has told the Yorkshire Post that the bishop sought a reference from De La Salle but was not told why Father O’Brien had been sacked from St William’s.

De La Salle has confirmed it did not in its reference say why the then Brother Ambrose O’Brien was sacked. But the brotherhood also pointed out the diocese held recorded evidence of the dismissal.

He was consequently able to train at Ushaw College in Durham and was ordained in 1975.

Father O’Brien went on to serve at churches in Middlesbrough before moving to North Yorkshire, and had a 15-year spell at All Saints in Thirsk, from where he retired in 1998.

When he died last year, aged 87, the diocese held a funeral Mass attended by the current bishop – Bishop Terry Drainey – and 20 other priests.

The diocese published details of the Mass on its website, including the homily, but there was no reference to Father O’Brien’s dismissal from St William’s.

The Yorkshire Post can also reveal that Humberside Police, which has previously been censured by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) over failings in its investigation into St William’s, was told about Father O’Brien’s sacking, along with suggestions that he might have gone on to abuse other children while a priest.

A witness statement provided on January 23, 2002 by Noel Hartnett, who was himself the subject of investigation but cleared of any wrongdoing, directly identified Father O’Brien as a perpetrator. Mr Hartnett, a former Brother at the home, informed two detectives why Father O’Brien was sacked and told them that he himself was present when the home’s principal carried out the dismissal.

He also told them a priest in the diocese had approached him during the early 1990s for information on Father O’Brien because the priest had heard of allegations of more recent abuse. Mr Hartnett told police the priest said he was compiling a dossier to send to the bishop.

The priest, who has since retired and is into his 80s, denied the existence of any dossier

And her husband, a judge in KENYA

News of the World 17 July 1988

“The News of the World carried an article about Butler-Sloss’s husband.

Under the front-page headlines “Cleveland Judge Sex Scandal” and “Dame’s randy spouse frolics with vice girls” was an article reporting that he was a judge in Kenya and was ‘associating’ with prostitutes.”

http://www.c-g.org.uk/issues/shame/debs/content.htm

Asked who instigated the Cleveland inquiry in 2003 Lady Butler-Sloss replied: “I think it was my brother actually as Lord Chancellor.”

A recently discovered article from Capital Gay magazine reveals how libel threats were used to silence newspapers who reported on the Elm Guest House paedophile ring. The Attorney General, Sir Michael Havers, would personally investigate complaints from lawyers representing Elm Guest House.

Sir Michael Havers

Sir Michael Havers

Sir Michael Havers played a leading role in theSir Peter Hayman cover-up, and told Geoffrey Dickens not to name the paedophile diplomat in Parliament. Havers argued that Hayman should have retained his anonymity, and didn’t think the British public needed to know that powerful Establishment figures abused children.

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.

It’s clear that Scotland Yard, Sir Michael Havers, and the Elm Guest House lawyers were all following the same script. It’s easy to blame the press for their part in the cover-up, but they were up against the most senior police and law officers in the country.

The most striking thing about the article is the strenuous denial of any link to the murder/disappearance of Vishal Mehrotra and Martin Allen, both of whom disappeared not far from Rocks Lane bewtween 1979 and 1981. Vishal Mehrotra went missing on the night of the Royal Wedding in 1981, when the Elm Guest House paedophiles were having a ‘Kings and Queens party’.

Scotland Yard had earlier confirmed to the Express that they were investigating connections between the missing boys and Elm Guest House. “Scotland Yard is expected to reopen files on the murder of one boy and he disappearance of another in their investigation into a VIP homosexual vice network in London.” Full article

Just a couple of months later these connections were “absolute rubbish”…

Murder link to Margaret Thatcher aide accused of raping teenage boy

Exclusive: Police are examining whether Sir Peter Morrison could have been linked to the mysterious death of young Vishal Mehrotra in 1981

 

Sir Peter Morrison, the former deputy chairman of the Conservative Party who died in 1995, was a known child molester but was never charged with any crime during his lifetime.

 

Now police are examining whether the MP for Chester could have had any link to the unsolved murder of eight-year-old Vishal Mehrotra in 1981.

 

Last week a 46-year-old man told the Telegraph that Morrison raped him when he was 14, and claimed Scotland Yard covered it up.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/11325064/Murder-link-to-Margaret-Thatcher-aide-accused-of-raping-teenage-boy.html

Four months after Vishal’s remains were found, police raided the Elm Guest House and questioned dozens of men, reportedly including at least 30 prominent public figures and businessmen.

Mehrotra said: “This guesthouse was right next to where Vishal disappeared. There were predatory people there who were taking young boys and abusing them. It seems to me that it all adds up, so I can’t understand why the police have again failed to get in contact with me. I think the revelations of [Jimmy] Savile and others in recent months have opened up a Pandora’s box.

Baroness Sloss was appointed to Cleveland abuse inquiry by brother Michael Havers

The retired judge leading the Westminster abuse probe has revealed she was appointed to run a previous sex abuse inquiry by her late brother, Lord Havers, when he was Lord Chancellor.

Baroness Butler-Sloss has been under scrutiny over her suitability to investigate claims of a child-sex ring at Westminster because of a potential conflict of interest over her Establishment connections.

Yesterday, it was claimed she had kept allegations about a bishop out of a report on a paedophile scandal because she “cared about the church”.

Now, she faces fresh criticism over her admission of the key role of Lord Havers in the Cleveland child sex abuse inquiry in 1987 which she led.

Asked who instigated the Cleveland inquiry in 2003 Lady Butler-Sloss replied: “I think it was my brother actually as Lord Chancellor.”

Tory child abuse whistleblower: ‘Margaret Thatcher knew all about underage sex ring among ministers’

Former activist Anthony Gilberthorpe says he sent Thatcher a 40-page dossier in 1989 accusing Cabinet members of abusing underage boys

Anthony Gilberthorpe says he sent her a 40-page dossier in 1989 accusing Cabinet members of abusing underage boys at drug-fuelled conference parties.

Mr Gilberthorpe, who claims he was ordered to recruit boys for the ministers, says he posted the “graphic” allegations to Mrs Thatcher after befriending her.

Mr Gilberthorpe, who was a young Tory hopeful when he was asked to recruit for the parties, said: “I outlined exactly what I had witnessed and informed her I intended to expose it.

“I had met Mrs Thatcher on several occasions and even presented her with a birthday cake in 1983. I believed she had to know.”

He said that being overlooked for the safe Tory seat of Gloucester in April 1986 made up his mind to shop the ministers. “I believe I was stitched up and it gave me an insight into the treacherous nature of the party,” he added.

“It was one of the reasons I decided reveal what I’d witnessed. I made it very clear to Mrs Thatcher most trusted ministers had been at these parties with boys who were between 15 and 16.

“I also told her of the amount of illegal drugs like cocaine that were consumed.

Chadwin also defended Arkwright.

“Prosecutor” Havers

The need for an inquiry was taken up in the House of Commons by Yorkshire MPs, who also attacked the Attorney-General, Sir Michael Havers, for his role in the prosecution. Sir Michael opened the 15-day trial by telling the judge, Sir Justice Boreham, he did not believe that Sutcliffe was guilty of murder. He told the judge he accepted the view of doctors who diagnosed Sutcliffe as a schizophrenic.

Stuart Bell listed on Elm Guest House list

link

The name “Stuart Bell” appears on the Elm House documents, though it is not clear if it refers to the late MP for Middlesbrough.

He chose to resign his post after the Cleveland child abuse scandal which occupied two years of his life, after making unsubstantiated accusations of ‘clinical error’ against local paediatricians and child sexual abuse specialists.

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

He then played a pivotal role in the passage of the Children Act which, he said, replaced “confusing, unfair” laws. Sir Stuart helped draft the new law and was instrumental in its passage.

he was appointed Second Church Estates Commissioner to handle relations between church and state.

http://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/local-news/stuart-bell—miners-son-3669656

Neil Kinnock brought Bell on to the front bench as a Northern Ireland spokesman.

By his mid-30s miner’s son Stuart Bell, , was a millionaire international lawyer and a Name at Lloyd’s with homes and offices in Paris and London, and had written his first novel. The book was a raunchy semi-autobiographical story of little literary merit…

Intent on becoming “a writer” he relocated to Paris, where he worked as a clerk in a law firm among whose clients was the European office of Walt Disney.

With such a prestigious client he quickly found others, including Hewlett Packard and General Motors, and started to specialise in the lucrative area of European trade and international tariffs. His success was speedy and he expanded to offices in the exclusive Avenue Montaigne, premises that had been the wartime headquarters of American Forces (complete with an “Oval Office”).

Although he had borrowed a house in the constituency from his Daily Mirror friend while contesting Hexham, and as a city councillor in Newcastle upon Tyne (1981-83), his jet-setting pursuit of politics soon started to eat into his fortune. First he had to sacrifice his magnificent country home (swimming pool, tennis court) in Chantilly, outside Paris, then his young mistress, and finally his senior partnership in a firm that employed more than a dozen lawyers, and along with it his apartment (Eiffel Tower view) in Avenue Montaigne. Until his election, when he became entitled to an MP’s salary of £15,308, he was reduced to seeking work as a barrister on the Northern Circuit.

Wilf Proudfoot was Member of Parliament for Cleveland, his secretary, Christine Holman (the future Christine Hamilton)

Radio 270 was also attacked in Parliament. Mr Proudfoot had previously been a Conservative MP and, as someone with an interest in politics, offered late night airtime on his station to various politicians. Harvey Proctor, a student at the University of York and Chairman of the University Conservative Association, was invited to produce a number of half-hour political programmes for Radio 270. Right-wing Tory MP Patrick Wall took part in one show during which he spoke in favour of recognising the illegal Smith regime in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Government MPs were incensed but Mr Proudfoot defended his actions by saying that Labour representatives had been offered equal time, but had turned it down. The political broadcasts continued. Harvey Proctor later became an MP himself, representing Basildon from 1979 to 1983 and Billericay from 1983 to 1987, before a sex scandal ended his Parliamentary career.

Heath’s  autobio covers the fact that he used Young Conservatives for ‘information gathering and propoganda’ assistance.

http://www.offshoreradio.co.uk/270b.htm

Radio 270’s office was run by Maggie Lucas (now Maggie White) and, DJ Noel Miller’s then wife, Carole. Maggie casts her mind back:

Maggie Lucas.
“I had previously worked for (Managing Director) Wilf Proudfoot when he was Member of Parliament for Cleveland and this was how I came to work for 270 some months after it went to air. In the interest of economy the office had moved into the large family room at the Proudfoots’ Scarborough home, adjacent to the purpose-built offices of the Proudfoot Supermarkets.

Savile and Cleveland – Saltburn

Saltburn fixed it for Jimmy.

Sir Jimmy replied and said: “Saltburn, Teddy’s Nook and the Kellys was my first taste of the grand life. Such space inside and out, such views.

The Cottage, Teddys Nook, Marine Parade, Saltburn-by-the-sea, Cleveland

It was JS’ cousins (the Kelly family) who rented ‘The Cottage’ in Saltburn – and he was a frequent visitor apparently. It is actually a mini-mansion in spite of its modest name. The Cottage is nick-named ‘Teddy Nook’ because in the 1870s Lillie Langtry entertained the future Edward VII there.

link

Lillie Langtry

She was also known for herrelationships with noblemen, including the Prince of Wales, the Earl of Shrewsbury, and Prince Louis of Battenberg.

Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg, was a British naval officer and German prince related to members of the British Royal Family.

He married a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, and was the father of Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma, who also served as First Sea Lord from 1954 to 1959. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, consort of Queen Elizabeth II, is his grandson.

In April 1879, Langtry had a short affair with Prince Louis of Battenberg

Lillie Langtry allegedly bore him an illegitimate daughter, Jeanne Marie

In June 1880, she became pregnant. Her husband was not the father; she led Prince Louis to believe that he was.

Prince Louis’ son, Earl Mountbatten of Burma, had always maintained that his father was the father of Jeanne Marie.[23]

Langtry’s father was Rector and Dean of Jersey he nevertheless earned an unsavoury reputation as a ‘ladies man’ fathering illegitimate children by various of his parishioners

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

Langtry was a regular in high society- and counted Oscar Wilde and Arthur Conan Doyle as close friends

Langtry became an American citizen in 1897 and died in Monte Carlo in 1929 aged 75.

She is rumoured to have been the inspiration for the character of Irene Adler in Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes tale A Scandal In Bohemia.

AMONG the women who were to succeed Lillie as the antidote to Bertie’s boredom was the voluptuous Mrs Alice Keppel, daughter of a baronet, whose husband’s forbearance was rewarded by membership of the Royal Victorian Order.

Our own Prince of Wales, Bertie’s great-great grandson, is not a serial philanderer – for would not the tabloids tell us? – but it is a neat symmetry that Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles, cited by Princess Diana as the third person in her unhappy marriage, should be Alice Keppel’s great-granddaughter

Teddy Nook

http://northeasthistorytour.blogspot.com/2012/01/teddys-nook-nz666216.html

Sir Jimmy Savile, who died in October aged 84, had a strong link to Saltburn, in particular to the large villa overlooking the pier known as Teddy’s Nook. He praised his friendship with the family who owned the house to his success in his career. It was owned in the 1930s by Bill Kelly, of Middlesbrough stockbrokers Stancliffe’s, and his wife was Jimmy’s aunt Meg. Jimmy, who then lived in a workaday part of Leeds, used to visit Teddy’s Nook and enjoyed holidays with his cousins, as the Kelly’s had a large family. Mike Morrissey, of Saltburn, discovered the link when Jimmy replied to a letter he wrote to him via St James’s Hospital, Leeds, where Jimmy worked as a volunteer.Saltburn, Teddy’s Nook and the Kelly’s was my first taste of the grand life. Such space, inside and out, such views,” wrote the larger-than-life celebrity, charity fund-raiser, and marathon runner. “Auntie Meg was my mother’s sister. By a fluke she married someone called Kelly, the same as her maiden name. “Coming from a low-income family (in those days were were called `poor’) the Kelly household had a great effect on me. “One of my first pre-teen feelings was `If it’s possible for them, surely it must be possible for me.’ “And so it proved, but my bit of success would have been impossible had I not seen it at Saltburn first. All my cousins were quite super and all in all it was a magic experience in a magic place.” The PS to his letter was:I often sneak into town disguised as Robert de Niro.” Mike wrote to Sir Jimmy because he was researching Teddy’s Nook for a talk he gave to Saltburn and District Retired Men’s Forum in about 1995. “I’ve always felt his memory of the Kelly family and its effect on his career was remarkable,” said Mike. “His letter was written on the other side of my note to him. He signed it with a smily face in the loop of the “J” in his signature. Great!”

Cleveland police refused to investigate signs of anal abuse and publicly condemned doctors and social services for intervening. The Government (Butler Sloss’ brother Michael Havers) called in a judge, Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, to sort it out.

Contrary to myth, her report did not dispute doctors’ clinical findings of anal abuse.

In Cumbria, as in Cleveland, the police not only did nothing, they did it with determination – they ignored the abuse alarm raised by the forensic pathologist and resisted a mandatory Serious Case Review.

Only just seeing this today ! Good reporting Barbara (Hewson) especially the stories about Police ‘trawling’ for ‘victims’, appalling.
My only gripe would be that neither Mark Smith or ‘Anna Raccoon’ appear to have mentioned the University research project relating to the Savile claims.Much talkof ‘post Savile’ but, he, or rather, his loved ones, have had to endure three years of, what many now believe are ‘false’ claims repeated in the media on an almost daily beside.
Several bloggers including myself have been investigating the Savile claims for more than two years. A fact noted here –

‘So began a three year unofficial investigation into the Duncroft allegations that had sparked the 2012 nationwide Savile Scandal.

Cameron-Blackie collated further information gathered by three other blogging investigators known as Moor Larkin, Rabbitaway and The Rockphiles.’

Here’s the link the more folk know the better. Shame no-one bothered to mention it on the day !

Social work professor denies he is an ‘apologist for child abusers

A PROFESSOR of social work who previously ran secure units for children in Edinburgh where youngsters were sexually abused has claimed the evidence against child abusers can be “flimsy” and he hasn’t come across a case yet where he has been convinced of guilt.

Mark Smith also admitted that when he heard the details of some charges he has thought, “I’ve done that”. The University of Dundee academic previously managed council care homes for traumatised young girls in Edinburgh, including St Katharine’s home.

One former carer at St Katharine’s, Gordon Collins, took advantage of his position of trust to groom, molest and rape teenagers between 1995 and 2006 at the home. He was jailed last year for the historical abuse of four girls. Another man, Kevin Glancy, was jailed in 2008 for possessing 239 pictures and 70 video clips of child abuse.

Smith wrote an article entitled “Criminalising everyday care” for a legal news website about miscarriages of justice.

One campaign group which supports survivors of abuse has described Smith as “an apologist for child abusers”. Smith’s former employer, City of Edinburgh Council, distanced themselves from Smith and insisted all convictions against its former employees are “safe”.

Smith has defended his article, claiming he has not tried to deny “genuine abuses”. His current employer, the University of Dundee, also defended the academic’s right to “freedom of speech”.

Smith said in his article he had “come uncomfortably close to cases of historical abuse over the past dozen or so years” and had given evidence to both prosecution and defence and been a witness in cases where he has “worked directly with the accused”.

He wrote: “I have not come across a case yet where I have been convinced of guilt. In fact I have been horrified by the flimsiness, indeed the banality, of the evidence that finds its way to court. Not only that, I found myself thinking on hearing of some charges: “I’ve done that”.

Smith, who participated in a Scottish Government review of secure accommodation for young people in 2005, goes on to say the prosecution of historical child abuse cases “owes very little to evidence of actual abuse but is driven by shifting attitudes and assumptions about how to care for children”.

Citing the case of a former colleague who was convicted of abusing boys at a residential school where they both worked in the 1980s – and who Smith said was wrongfully convicted – Smith said when staff showered with young boys “cold water may have been thrown about – bodies flicked with rolled-up towels” and insisted “all of this was done in fun – I don’t believe for a minute that any boy was traumatised”.

Smith said it’s not only “the odd bad apple” who may face prosecution, adding that he fears every carer who worked in a residential setting “risks becoming caught in the cross hairs” of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.

Abuse survivor David Whelan, of campaign group Former Boys and Girls Abused (FBGA), was targeted by paedophile John Porteous who was jailed in 2002 for historical sex offences against boys. He said: “Mark Smith fails to recognise that many people were actually convicted of crimes in a court of law. His article is an attempt to discredit genuine victims. I would go as far as to say he’s an apologist for child abusers.

“He’s excusing behaviour that wasn’t normal, such as carers showering with children. When adults did do this they had a propensity to abuse children. In my own case my abuser John Porteous used to shower with the boys. Mark Smith seems to suggest this wasn’t a sexually-motivated act.”

Janine Rennie of Wellbeing Scotland, an organisation that supports survivors of abuse, said she was “extremely angry” by Smith’s claim that he is unconvinced of the guilt of convicted child abusers.

She said: “Of 1,500 case files we have there’s not one we’d assess in the same way he has. I am concerned that this social work lecturer doesn’t see the significance of child abuse or understand how difficult it is for survivors to talk about their experiences. It takes a huge amount of courage for a survivor to come forward, so these entirely inappropriate views are very dangerous and could discourage people from speaking to the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry or indeed the police.”

Abuse survivor Dave Sharp, founder of SAFE (Seek and Find Everyone Abused in Childhood) was beaten and raped by a Christian Brother in a shower room at St Ninian’s school in Fife. He said: “People who make these kinds of comments which play down abuse must be scrutinised.”

A senior source at City of Edinburgh Council said the local authority does not share Smith’s views and they have “no doubt about the safety of convictions” of former residential care staff.

A spokesman for the council added: “The views expressed in no way represent the views of the council and we would refute them. We are co-operating fully with the current Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry. We work closely with Police Scotland and our partner agencies to investigate any allegations of abuse, whether current or historical.”

A spokesman for the University of Dundee said: “One of the core principles of academic freedom is freedom of speech and we support that for all of our academics.”

Smith told the Sunday Herald: “The question I have addressed in my article, which was first published more than four months ago, is one that is of considerable debate – whether the application of modern standards to behaviour that occurred decades ago and in a time of different cultural norms means people are at risk of being unfairly prosecuted or demonised.

“In doing this I have not made reference to specific cases. What I have said is descriptive of practices at the time, which were commonplace and open.

“This is not an attempt in any way to deny genuine abuses that took place or make apologies for truly awful behaviour.

“Of course we do not want to discourage victims of abuse to come forward.

“But we also have to be extremely careful we are not making abusers of people who took part in innocent practices, which is the essence of my article.

“I would stress that I speak on the basis of decades of experience in the area of residential care and claims of abuse.”

Here’s a convicted paedophile (Jonathan King)  praising research by the Jimmy-Savile-Is-A-Saint brigade trying to whitewash a paedophile who snuffed it before he could be convicted:

Securing a data set on allegations of sexual abuse made against former disc jockey, Jimmy Savile

Dr Mark Smith, Dr Steve Kirkwood and Dr Ros Burnett, The University of Oxford

This project, awarded under an ESRC call for ‘Urgent’ research, aims to secure data that might otherwise be lost, relating to allegations made against the former DJ, Jimmy Savile. The initiative for the project came from a lawyer and writer who is a former resident of Duncroft School (from whence the initial allegations against Savile emanate), and whose blogging activity under the name of ‘Anna Raccoon’ has generated a substantial body of related correspondence and contacts which provide and could lead to information not yet in the public domain. We aim to collate and archive Anna Raccoon’s blog posts, comments on these and to interview key staff and former residents from Duncroft School. The data gathered will be digitally archived and made available to other researchers. It is likely to be of interest to social and cultural historians, criminologists, lawyers and social workers amongst others.

The research team consists of Mark Smith and Steve Kirkwood from Social Work, Clare Llewellyn from Informatics and Ros Burnett, a criminologist from the University of Oxford.

Alan Rusbridger & convicted paedophile Tom O’Carroll

2013

Below is a comment left on this blog by the source of Tom Watson’s PMQ about “a powerful political paedophile ring”. It raises many questions about why The Guardian are still not covering the national scandal of children procured from care homes being abused by rich and poweful paedophiles, while at the same time giving a platform to paedophile activist Tom O’Carroll. When reading this bear in mind that Tom O’Carroll has a conviction for possession of a collection of 50,000 images and films of children as young as 6 being raped and tortured. This was not mentioned in The Guardian’s coverage.

I feel obliged to share with you my correspondence with Alan Rusbridger on the matter and let your followers come to their own conclusions

On January 3rd Jon Henley wrote an article in the Guardian entitled ” Paedophilia : bringing dark desires to light

I wrote to the Editor of the Guardian, Alan Rusbridger, the following :-

I was a Guardian reader for over 40 years until you made the decision to publish an article described by Tom O’Carroll on his website as ” the first I have ever seen in a mainstream media outlet giving significant coverage to research suggesting that paedophilia is not intrinsically harmful.That was superb, confirming my long held view that Alan Rusbridger is the best ever editor of the world’s greatest English – language newspaper. ”

O’Carroll goes in to great detail on his website about the actual process by which you and Jon Henley made contact with him – what a disgrace you are, allowing this man to view it as a great triumph for him because that is exactly how I viewed it despite your pathetic attempt to justify publishing the article and Henley’s response to Tom Watson MP. ( see Tom Watson’s blog )

Tom O’Carroll is a clever but very dangerous and evil man.

I am as qualified as anyone after 37 years working in child protection and specialising for many years in the investigation of child sexual abuse and the investigation of highly organised rings to know the full extent of the harm done to children and young people by predatory paedophiles like O’Carroll

I am the person who contacted Tom Watson which led to his PMQ on October 24th last year. Before Christmas I agreed to be interviewed by one of your most senior journalists – that now feels like a big mistake given your coverage of O’Carroll’s views and what came across to me as an attempt to find positives in what is one of the most heinious crimes in any society.

( I provided the Guardian with all the information I passed to Tom Watson but not one word of it has appeared in print by them to date )

You should be heading a campaign to close down sites like O’Carroll’s and I strongly believe he should be arrested for the content alone. The almost total lack of coverage by the British media of the events leading up to the setting up of Operation Fernbridge, despite the availability of numerous potential stories that are not sub judice linked to high level historic abuse, is exceptionally worrying.

Paedophiles like Savile, Peter Morrison, Cyril Smith, Sir Peter Hayman were so confident of establishment support they didn’t need to operate in secret they could be as indiscreet as they wished knowing that even if they came to the attention of the Police nothing would come of it and the full weight of the Attorney General and The Director of Public Prosecutions and their underlings would be brought in to play ” in the public interest ”

In what way was ” our ” collective national security protected by the security services when they covered up Cyril Smith’s systematic abuse of children ? ”

The vast majority of the population of this country know that national security when used in these circumstances has absolutely nothing to do with ” our ” collective security but everything to do with being a cover for sustaining the power of the wealthy and privileged.

Your newspaper and you and Jon Henley in particular have very badly let that vast majority down – after Savile we had the opportunity for this to be a watershed moment but the backlash started by the allegedly mistaken identity of a certain individual has gathered momentum and if I had been told that the Guardian would be in the vanguard of that backlash I would never have believed it ”

Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger

Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger

This is the reply I received from Alan Rusbridger :-

” Thanks for your letter.

I thought Jon Henley wrote an intelligent piece about the mixed academic and medical opinion on paedophilia.

I did not take it to be in any way a defence of child sexual abuse or paedophilia.

I think it desirable, not irresponsible, to write seriously about in-depth research into this disturbing area of life.

I was interested to read about how thinking had changed over time and to hear from a range of experts who deal with offenders

It was,to my mind, a calm and informative piece.

Tom O’Carroll’s speculation as to the genesis of the piece is wide of the mark. We did briefly meet at the Guardian’s readers’ week-end earlier last year. But this had no connection with Jon Henley’s piece.

You will be aware that the Guardian was responsible for exposing the case of mistaken identity to which you refer in your final paragraph. I don’t accept that the paper is in the ” vanguard” of any ” backlash ” after the unmasking of Savile. Our article about Lord McAlpine was of a peice with the intelligent approach that Henley showed in his own article.This is, I accept, a difficult subject and the Gurdian will continue to cover it thoroughly and calmly ”

I contacted Alan Rusbridger a week ago to advise him that I intended to post our respective views on your website
I have not received a response so must assume he has no objection

Set in a wooded and pastoral countryside, Ditchley lies twelve miles north of Oxford, and within easy reach of Heathrow Airport and Central London. The original owners, the Lee Family, had hosted English monarchs there since the days of Queen Elizabeth I. The use of the house as an international conference centre aptly reflects its history and its transatlantic heritage. Built in the eighteenth century, this residence has served as the site of a number of distinguished international meetings, most notably during World War II when it occasionally became the weekend retreat of Sir Winston Churchill.

Ralph Underwager and the Cleveland child abuse inquiry

Most people’s memory of the Cleveland child abuse scandal in 1987 would be of a nationionwide media storm involving ‘falsely accused’ parents whose children had been taken away by over-zealous social workers who had misdiagnosed child sexual abuse.

But the truth was much darker. The majority of the children had been sexually abused and many were subsequently made to return to the homes they were abused in. The Department of Health “actively withheld and concealed” evidence from an independent panel which showed that 93 of the 121 Cleveland children had been found by the courts to be at risk of abuse.

 

In 1989, the Department of Health destroyed all records relating to the children. Within two years of the original controversy, many of the children had been re-referred to social services.

Frank Cook, Labour MP for Stockton on Tees, said: “I’m astonished and dumbfounded. Had we known what I have only just now learnt, then it would have made a major difference to the Children’s Act and to attitudes to abuse”.

The Butler-Sloss inquiry into the Cleveland case heard evidence from an American ‘child abuse expert’ called Ralph Underwager. He spoke out on behalf of the ‘falsely accused’ parents and many of his recommendations made their way into the Butler-Sloss report. The Butler-Sloss report, as Frank Cook pointed out, went on to influence both Children’s Act and also the subsequent handling of countless child abuse inquiries.

 

Underwager_RalphA few years later, Ralph Underwager was exposed by an interview he gave to a European paedophile magazine called Paidika, in which he said child sexual abuse was “God’s Will”.

Here are some extracts from the interview, which can be found here:

Underwager: Paedophiles can boldly and courageously affirm what they choose. They can say that what they want is to find the best way to love….Paedophiles can make the assertion that the pursuit of intimacy and love is what they choose. With boldness they can say, “I believe this is in fact part of God’s will

Cleveland Police investigating ’20 to 30′ historic child sexual abuse cases

Force confirm that they are looking into “historic cases” in the wake of coverage of high profile sexual abuse cases

2014

Retired senior judge Elizabeth Butler-Sloss was named as the chairwoman of a wide-ranging review into historical child sex abuse.

Baroness Butler-Sloss led the Cleveland child abuse inquiry in the late 1980s.

However after pressure because of her family links with the case – including a call from former Redcar MP and solicitor general Vera Baird to stand down – the former judge confirmed she would withdraw from the post.

Butler-Sloss had faced intense criticism because her brother, the late Sir Michael Havers, was attorney general during the 1980s when reports of child abuse were allegedly not examined properly.

Islington Council orders new inquiry into ex-mayor’s alleged pro-paedophile past

21 September 2017

The proposed inquiry will explore evidence that the councillor who oversaw social services as Islington’s horrific abuse scandal came to light in the early 1990s had been a member of a pro-paedophile organisation.

The Gazette reported earlier this year on ex-councillor Sandy Marks’ alleged links to a clandestine group called Fallen Angels, which was supportive of paedophilia and lobbied for paedophile rights.

She denies these allegations.

Now a top barrister has said the Gazette’s investigation calls into question the validity of an earlier independent report into child abuse at Islington’s care homes, the White Report

Town hall takes step toward reopening investigation…but survivors’ groups urge caution

Islington Council has appointed a pair of top lawyers to examine evidence linking former mayor Sandy Marks to a pro-paedophile campaign group in the early 1980s, and whether a government inquiry into the rape and assault of children over at least three decades could have been skewed.

James Goudie QC and Holly Stout have been asked to advise the council whether or not this newspaper’s investigation “could reasonably be said to call in question the integrity of the White Report” – the Department of Health’s 1995 probe that found no evidence of organised child abuse, but heavily criticised the council’s response to the allegations.

Dr Davies greeted the lawyers’ appointment with caution, pointing out Mr Goudie QC – a deputy high court judge – is acting for Lambeth Council over its own kids’ abuse scandal. Lambeth admitted liability last year for the abuse that took place at the Shirley Oaks home, but survivors were dismayed this week to discover the council – under Mr Goudie QC’s direction – would administer the payout scheme itself instead of appointing an independent panel as is usual.

In addition, eligibility criteria for receiving payouts mean many survivors will miss out, according to a spokesperson for Lambeth survivors’ group Shirley Oaks Survivors’ Association.

As survivors, SOSA is appalled that this man is being selected.”

Dr Davies said: “We were hoping for a QC with a criminal law background, or children’s law – [Mr Goudie’s] background is public administration, which made us think he’s been brought in to defend the council.”

She also questioned the terms of reference, saying: “We wouldn’t have phrased it like that.

“‘Call into question the integrity of the White Report’? We didn’t think it had much integrity. We’ve been criticising it [for years].

“I was the social worker who said 61 children were victims of a network of abuse and [yet] the White Report said there was no evidence of a network. That completely undermined all the work I was doing.”

Dr Davies said she would have preferred the lawyers to examine not just the White Report, and the 13 internal Islington Council probes that led up to it, but the period afterwards at the town hall.

And she said it was vital that the lawyers interviewed social workers and councillors from the time rather than simply carrying out a “paper exercise” – an area in which she believes the White Report failed.

Both Mr Goudie QC and Ms Stout are from the 11 King’s Bench Walk chambers in the City.

Islington’s pro-paedophile activists’ network: Roger Moody and Sandy Marks

n March 1991 Roger Moody, pro-paedophile rights campaigner and paedophile political activist, wrote to the Islington Gazette (address given as Liverpool Road, N1), identifying himself “as a youth worker who until recently worked in a school-based youth project”.

Was Roger Moody employed in Islington as a youth worker based within a school? Which school was he working within? Was Islington Council his employer?

Within 18 months of Moody losing his job, the Evening Standard exposed the extent to which Islington’s children’s homes had been infiltrated by paedophiles, pornographers and pimps.

More on Roger Moody’s pro-paedophile activism and prolific writings and his links with politicians alluded to his in book ‘Indecent Assault’

The third meeting of the Conspiracy Against Public Morals committee (PIE’s legal defence publicists, strategists and fundraisers) gathered on 11 September 1979.

Six months’ previously in April 1979 Moody had been acquitted of 4 counts of indecent assault and 1 count of attempted buggery on a 10 year old boy — with the help of a character witness statement from an MP read out in court for his defence.

CAPM attendees included NCCL’s former and future Gay Rights Officers, Nettie (PIE Member No 70) Pollard and Barry Prothero, PIE Chairman and defendant Tom O’Carroll, Fallen Angels Tim Brown and Sandy Marks (future Islington councillor and Chair of Social Services Committee) and Adrian Fulford (now Lord Justice Adrian Fulford — Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales).

Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 11.11.25

Was Roger Moody the Roger in attendance at the CAPM committee alongside Sandy Marks? If so, was Sandy Marks aware Roger Moody, as an out and proud self-proclaimed paedophile worked with children in Islington and continued to do so until at least 1991? If aware of Moody’s views on the positive benefits paedophiles bring to the social welfare of children when working in child-care roles, did Sandy Marks take any steps once serving on the Social Services Committee from 1982 to ensure Roger Moody’s ability to work with children was curtailed?

IMG_3270

Roger Moody c. 1970-71, youth worker for Bemerton Adventure Playground, Copenhagen Street, Barnsbury

James Goudie QC and Holly Stout’s recent report for Islington Council recommends further independent investigation into Sandy Marks and her role in the 1995 White Report, and states that evidence should be examined as to “the nature, extent and duration of Sandy Marks’ involvement in Fallen Angels, and any other pro-paedophile groups;”

Two other pro-paedophile groups with links to Islington were Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) and Paedophile Action for Liberation (PAL), both of which Roger Moody contributed to meetings and newsletters of, hoping to shape their thinking along more radical socialist revolutionary lines.

The extent to which all of these pro-paedophile lobbying groups, including Fallen Angels, were able to gain influence and traction in a council which its own Chief Executive declared “vulnerable to lobbying groups”(1) is the wider context in which to examine Sandy Marks’ conduct, associations and actions, influencers and influence. Therefore Goudie QC’s inclusionary language is to be welcomed. Whether Islington Council listens remains to be seen.

Did Sandy Marks work in Rising Free bookshop?

Rising Free Bookshop was a distributer of alternative books and pamphlets based in Kings Cross.  It was listed in the 1975 book Alternative England and Wales as follows:

IMG_3831

Dear Sandy,

Our paths once crossed at the Rising Free Bookshop a long time ago, but it is also a long time since I exposed the Islington child abuse scandal in 1992. I have, ever since, lived and breathed the ongoing issues which that raised. Even recently, various survivors have come forward to me and I have continued to learn about the vast extent of harm that they experienced. There has never been a survivors group in Islington for the victims of the abuse and so I still remain a contact point for those who come forward. I have been trying to assist some of them in locating their files but sadly it seems most files went missing at the time of the exposé in the early 90s.

Sandy Marks chaired the London Borough’s Childrens Regional Planning Committee during the early 90s.

The well worn Times article below provides the police view in 1993 that wealthy businessmen were under surveillance who were linked to a sex ring abusing young people living in children’s homes in the London Borough of Islington which had been a magnet for ‘child molesters’. In this Times article, Sandy Marks is cited as pledging to sack senior staff if the government proved they had acted unprofessionally. There were some changes made in social services management after the Inquiries.  Very few abusers were also convicted and some are now deceased but I hope that there will soon be a police-led investigation of the information we have from the 90s and also of the information from all the survivors and witnesses who have now come forward to Islington Survivors Network.

I am struggling to understand why my professional work was so despised at the time leaving me in great difficulty in trying to protect the children.

Islington Councils’ “flop” choice of “top” lawyer

Islington Council said it was “shocked and concerned” and promised to set up an inquiry led by a “top” lawyer to examine new evidence relating to a former mayor, Sandy Marks,  pro-paedophile past.

Yet they have chosen a lawyer James Goudie [5] who is acting for Lambeth Council over its own child rape scandal see Islington Council takes step toward reopening kids’ abuse investigation…but survivors’ groups aren’t happy[6]

                                                                     James Goudie QC

If that was not bad enough, child abuse campaigners have long thought that the networks in the two boroughs were connected eg 2013 Were Islington and Lambeth paedophile rings connected? [2]

How can a lawyer possibly investigate the abuse network on one hand and yet also have acted for a culpable party of the abuse network on the other? How can he be seen to be impartial and fair or independent?

Further to that, in this case he is acting for both simultaneously. It is a cut and dried conflict of interest. Goudie should choose to resign. He cannot possibly continue with this conflict of interest. Victims and survivors will not be able to trust him knowing the job he is doing now.

On the offchance that even with his insider knowledge of Lambeth abuse, Goudie does not realise this conflict of interest, I have sent this article to him.

How can the Council leader Watts possibly pretend Goudie is “independent”? He promised “we will appoint an independent QC to examine the evidence…” [4] He is not independent. Simple, choose again.

The terms of reference – what a mess. Everyone knows that Inquiries have many times in the past been deliberately limited by their terms of reference.

The Council appears to be trying to pass off as the parameters of the investigation “to advise the council whether or not this newspaper’s investigation “could reasonably be said to call in question the integrity of the White Report”” [6]

This is not only far too narrow, but is actually absurd. Setting up an inquiry into whether a relatively quick and small but revealing investigation, essentially about 1 person, could reasonably be said to question the integrity of an already discredited Report?

What if the answer is Yes, which already is quite clear, what then? What a waste of time, but perhaps that is the intention?

The terms of reference of the inquiry should be to find out the truth of what happened, to find out the facts.

Sandy Marks was Mayor and Social Services Committee Chair but she also chaired the London Boroughs Regional Planning Committee between 1991-5 which made decisions about putting children into secure units.

However Sandy Marks is just one person who was politically influential at the time. There are many others that need to be looked at.

John Rea Price for example was the Director of Social Services for a long time, 1972-92. He must have some comment to make about this scandal which took place during his time in Islington. Surely he can be helpful to survivors now and reveal what he knows?

There was abuse in 22 Islington homes and foster placements over 40 years with many abusers and facilitators. To have an inquiry into one mayor would appear to be not only  failing the children for which Islington Council had a Duty of Care, but also negligent.

It is surely time that the Inquiries of the 1990’s must be revisited as part of a police led investigation.

This decision has been botched by Islington in an arrogant, ignorant and crass manner.

Councillor Watts “stressed the council today is a “very different organisation” and said child protection is a top priority.”

It does not seem to be.

If there’s one thing the Coon and her Islington buddies ought to be challenging Corbyn on, it’s this and not the NHS

A blind eye to child abuse: Whistleblowers warned Labour leadership favourite Jeremy Corbyn of paedophiles preying on children on his doorstep – but claim he did NOTHING

  • Social workers warned Corbyn that child abuse was rife in his Islington constituency in 1992 
  • ‘We’d been seeing so many 12 to 15-year-olds who were being sexually exploited, we could hardly believe it,’ Liz Davies, one of the five social workers, recalled this week
  • Corbyn never wrote to Davies, or telephoned, to acknowledge their meeting, or thank her for seeking to blow the whistle 

PIE’s founder, Peter Righton (above) - a prominent social worker later prosecuted for importing child pornography from Holland - was put in charge of training courses on which council staff learned how to care for vulnerable children. Righton, who had a flat in the borough (as did PIE’s one-time key member, his friend Morris Fraser) once boasted: ‘Every Islington care home manager knows I like boys from 12’

In 1979 former social worker turned paedophile libertarian and peace activist, Roger Moody, was acquitted of indecent assault and attempted buggery of a 10 year old boy. His booklet ‘Indecent Assault’ tells of a ‘quite influential”glowing testimonial’ provided by an MP, against party HQ advice.

Timing of Islington/ Sandy Marks story:

It’s also significant …the  Corbyn/Islington connection is central.

This story seems to be surfacing just at the right time to further discredit Jeremy Corbyn pre- election – which means that therroristmay has the full dirt – as do the polticos driving her election campaign…

Former Labour prime minister Tony Blair was regularly painted as being part of a north London “Islington set”.

And asked if he was in fact part of an “Islington elite”, Mr Corbyn replied: “I am very proud to represent Islington North.

“It’s absolutely true, there are people in Islington who buy and drink cappuccino every day and I know many of them.

Jimmy Savile sex abuse: ‘Islington is still covering up’

Two decades on from her expose of sexual abuse in children’s homes, Eileen Fairweather talks to the survivors too scared to go public

Michael Gove has asked Islington Council for details of child abuse in the Seventies and Eighties, a scandal after which it shredded every incriminating file, sacked whistleblowers and smeared victims as mentally ill.

The man’s messages to the little girl sounded sweet. He reminded her that he was the friendly volunteer from the hospital, said he missed his poppet and hoped she’d write back. I found his messages online in a forum abroad for sick children. I don’t know if the child replied to him, and cannot now check, because the disease that hospitalised her has killed her. But I desperately hoped she never answered – this cheery guy is an alleged serial child rapist.

This has been claimed by three traumatised women who once lived in a now-notorious Islington children’s home. The man was allowed to take them for “outings” to the park and an Islington worker’s nearby flat. There he allegedly abused them while the others were forced to watch. The youngest was five. The man is also suspected of procuring little girls from the home for Jimmy Savile.

Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, announced in the Commons last month that the Metropolitan Police has identified 21 special schools and children’s homes in which Savile preyed on youngsters. Mr Gove named most, but said that the Islington home’s identity is unknown. I know its name, and suspect that Islington Council guesses it. Mr Gove trustingly asked the north-London council, exposed in the 1990s for employing paedophiles, pimps and child pornographers at all 12 of its children’s homes, to identify it. But how can Islington be trusted to uncover its own cover-up?

The supposed mystery stems from a much larger cover-up by the then-Labour authority to protect the liberty of the evil and the reputations of the ambitious. Children – including dying little girls – are still in danger because few of the scores of perverts who infiltrated Islington’s care system between the Seventies and the Nineties have been brought to justice.

Instead, Islington shredded every incriminating file, sacked whistleblowers and smeared victims as mentally ill.

I worked on the London Evening Standard investigation that first exposed the Islington scandal. Along with a colleague, Stewart Payne, I spent three months in 1992 secretly interviewing terrified whistleblowing staff, parents and children before the newspaper published a damning investigation. It was promptly attacked by then-council leader Margaret Hodge as a “sensationalist piece of gutter journalism”. We were falsely accused of bribing children to make up their heartbreaking stories. Mrs Hodge has since apologised and explained that her officials lied to her.

But the Standard’s then editor, the late Stewart Steven, proved indomitable. He funded us to keep digging – for three long years.

The Standard’s dossiers of evidence generated 13 independent inquiries and won two British Press awards. The final, damning Ian White Report in 1995 responded to the newspaper’s 112-page dossier of evidence. Parents, children and staff reiterated to White the paper’s allegations – including that violent pimps openly collected children from the home, and were even allowed by staff to stay overnight in children’s rooms.

White, then director of Oxfordshire social services, confirmed that Islington allowed at least 26 workers facing “extremely serious allegations” to leave its employ without investigation. Staff accused of everything from rape to child prostitution had been allowed to resign, often with good references. He described Islington as a “classic study” in how paedophiles target children, aided by the council’s naive interpretation of gay rights. “Equal opportunities… became a positive disincentive for challenge to bad practice… and a great danger”.

He called for the 26 staff to be barred from childcare and investigated further, naming them in a confidential annexe. But almost none were. As the scandal raged, Islington destroyed records. Ian White confirmed that “this happened at assistant-director level”. He “found no evidence of collusion”. But he was not allowed to question Islington’s assistant director Lyn Cusack, or her staff.

Mrs Cusack was married to a local senior police officer, Detective Superintendent Don McKay. She resigned in November 1993, citing personal reasons. Days earlier, the Standard had alerted the Social Services Inspectorate to Islington losing evidence requested by three different police forces investigating child sex rings, and the linked Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE).

Islington was deeply influenced by and had many connection to the Paedophile Information Exchange. In the fatally naïve 1970s to mid 80s, PIE openly campaigned for sex to be legalised with children from age four, and for incest and child pornography to be legalised. The National Council for Civil Liberties – now Liberty – allowed it to affiliate and its then legal officer Harriet Harman wrote a paper effectively backing some PIE demands. The assumption in those “progressive” days was that paedophiles simply loved children and wanted to “liberate” their sexuality.

Mrs Harman, whose role has been exposed in recent media stories, has described Margaret Hodge as her best friend in Parliament. Mrs Hodge’s late husband, Henry Hodge, also an Islington Labour councillor, earlier chaired the National Council for Civil Liberties. It is unknown if they ever discussed PIE.

In 1985, Mrs Hodge announced that Islington Council would positively discriminate in favour of gay staff. It exempted self-declared gay men from background checks, and paedophiles pretending to be decent gay men cynically exploited this. It emerged that Islington deputy superintendent Michael Taylor was in PIE after he received a four-year prison sentence in July 2000 for abusing two boys at Islington’s Gisburne House in the Seventies.

PIE founding member, Peter Righton, then Britain’s top “expert” on children’s homes, had even founded a training course for residential workers. Paedophilia, he declared in one essay, was “no more bizarre than a penchant for redheads”.

At least one Islington abuse victim was placed – by a key member of the Islington abuse ring, Nick Rabet – at a special boarding school outside London with which Righton was closely involved. The victim haltingly disclosed his abuse to his Islington social worker, who was deeply concerned. But in 1989, the social worker vanished, supposedly carrying the victim’s files under his arm. When the Standard asked questions about the school, Islington denied ever sending any child there. It also lied about this to police.

The White Report said that the social worker’s disappearance should be investigated by police. But it never was. This recommendation was redacted from the censored version of the report that Islington published last year. But I still have the original and live in hope of one day tracing that social worker. My understanding is that he was “heavied” and fled abroad.

Police and social services inquiries into PIE were also abruptly shut down. This led to the senior child protection manager bravely blowing the whistle in 2012 to Tom Watson, whose PMQ about an establishment paedophile ring leading to No 10 silenced the Commons. PIE supplied children from homes to wealthy establishment figures. It was the ultimate cross-party crime, which many wanted buried.

Sue Akers was a detective inspector and head of Islington police’s Child Protection Team at the scandal’s height. I begged her to study the paper’s evidence and place a believed child brothel under surveillance. But she refused to meet me. The failure of Islington police to act on intelligence provided by a terrified 13-year-old who admitted recruiting dozens of named children for three pimps was criticised by a secret 1993 inquiry into “Boy A”. But it was suppressed. Akers became a deputy assistant commander, responsible for all Metropolitan Police child-abuse investigations.

Hodge’s successor, Derek Sawyer, ran the council between 1992 and 1994, when the abuse inquiries were set up, and became head of police and probation bodies, and chairman of the London Courts Board. In 2010, Sawyer’s partner in an international education business, Derek Slade, was imprisoned for 21 years for brutally abusing 12 boys at St George’s boarding school in Suffolk. There is no suggestion that Mr Sawyer knew his friend was a paedophile.

As the Islington scandal dragged on, many of the alleged offenders simply moved abroad to prey on even poorer children. Like Jimmy Savile – and the Joker, as I have come to think of the hospital volunteer I mentioned earlier – some accessed children through charity work.

For legal reasons we are unable to name the Joker and have concealed identifying details. The allegations against him were never examined, and it is possible that they are false or result from the confused memories of young children. The Standard was similarly unable at first to name any of the alleged child abusers on Islington’s payroll. But that changed when key ringleaders were arrested abroad. Astonishingly, so-called Third World police managed what Britain’s finest could not.

Nicholas John Rabet, former deputy superintendent of Islington’s home at 114 Grosvenor Avenue, was charged in Thailand in 2006 with abusing 30 local boys – the youngest was six – and killed himself. I was finally able to describe his role in a nationwide child pornography ring serving wealthy British paedophiles; while ex-Cambridgeshire DC Peter Cook went on the record about how police inquiries here were mysteriously closed down.

The arrest and death of fellow ringleader Bernie Bain, former superintendent of Islington’s home at 1 Elwood Street, made it possible to name him. Bain abused numerous boys in his care, including Demetrious Panton, whom Margaret Hodge secretly branded “extremely disturbed” to BBC bosses in an attempt to halt a documentary on what she knew of the scandal. Mr Panton – now a lawyer – forced her to apologise for this cruel slur in the High Court.

Bain left Islington’s employ after Mr Panton, aged 11, revealed his abuse, which the council – influenced by PIE-type thinking – decided was “consensual”. The young victim spent the Eighties writing to Hodge’s councillors protesting otherwise. But Bain was left free to become a millionaire through a mysterious travel company. After the Standard started publishing, he fled to Morocco and was imprisoned there in 1996 for abusing children. He killed himself in 2000.

Detective Chief Superintendent John Sweeney, who took over Islington police’s child protection team after the scandal was exposed, traced long-ignored victims. He told me: “When I first learnt about the homes, I thought it couldn’t possibly be that bad. But it was worse.”

In the years since the White Report of 1995, more victims and abusers have come to light. However, Islington’s wholesale destruction of key files has enabled the council to avoid responsibility. I was asked in 2009 to help a solicitor representing one of Bain’s victims, who now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. Islington denied that this person was in their care as a child, and even that they ever employed Bain. The basis of their denial? They had no records for either.

Mr Panton revealed last week: “Just yesterday, I made a witness statement on behalf of someone who was also horribly abused by Bain. I knew him as a kid and his life and health have been destroyed by what happened to him. But Islington has denied any responsibility. So Islington is still covering up.”

I tracked down the Joker last autumn after I was given his details by someone who helped expose the scandal. I have known Shelley, as I shall call her, for many years and trust her forensic mind. She is concerned with protecting his three alleged victims as they remain traumatised. She knew nothing about the girls’ sufferings until Karen, the eldest, broke down and blurted out their story.

They were not yet ready, she said, to talk to the press or police. Many abuse survivors can only reveal what they suffered bit by bit – some suffer a self-protective partial amnesia. One was buggered at just five years old. I asked Shelley if it was possible she was being spun a fantasy. But she remembered the girl from care, and other details about what had occurred there.

Today Shelley has a good job, as does Karen. “Karen is very smart and sophisticated. But when she told me what happened, she fell apart. It was like she’d ripped off a scab. Afterwards she spent the day in bed, just crying.”

It is understood that, as adults in the early Noughties, two of the Joker’s alleged victims contacted the council, hoping for justice; that the council awarded them a smallish sum in compensation; and informed them the man had moved abroad and police could not find him.

Did Islington even alert police? It took me just two days to find him. I wept when I realised that he was accessing terminally ill children in an impoverished country. I discovered from his messages that the expat seemed lonely and kind. He wore funny hats to cheer up the children.

As a volunteer, he now visited them in hospital and at their homes. One unsuspecting mother said he was like a caring older relative in their time of need, and even invited him to stay. I found a photo of him at one hospital. I showed it to Shelley. She wasn’t taken in by his friendly grin: “That’s him. God, he’s ugly.”

When I learnt about the Joker, I spoke to Liz Davies, the former Islington senior social worker who blew the whistle on perverts targeting the council’s homes. Dr Davies is now Reader in Social Work at London Metropolitan University. I asked her how anyone could abuse a dying child. “Dead children can’t give evidence,” said Dr Davies. “There’s a training DVD about it. Some paedophiles target them.”

A reporter anonymously admitted last year that he had found Jimmy Savile on a mattress at the BBC with a little girl. She was bald, a cancer victim at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, where Savile “volunteered”. Savile hissed that if the reporter told anyone, his career was over. The reporter stayed silent.

Karen told Shelley: “None of us talked much as kids about what was being done to us… we felt ashamed. But the other girls mentioned being required to travel in Jimmy Savile’s taxis.”

Savile’s charity projects included ferrying disadvantaged children in taxis to places like Blackpool Pleasure Beach. At least one Islington survivor recalls being taken there by his abuser.

Child protection investigators have long been aware that corrupt taxi drivers are commissioned by paedophiles to transport children: “kids on wheels”, it has been called. One taxi driver was imprisoned in 1990 for prostituting boys. The same year, the Islington Gazette proudly recorded Jimmy Savile’s visit to open the council’s new housing complex for disabled people. The story focused on the likes of a three-year-old with cerebral palsy and a paralysed woman who had been at Stoke Mandeville.

Once this story is published, Shelley and I will give police the information we have. But she and the victims do not feel able to confide in police without the protection of media coverage.

What is certain is that neither these victims nor any others have much trust in Islington Council coming clean with the name of the home where abuse took place, as requested by Mr Gove. This is because the current Islington cabinet member with responsibility for children and family services is Joe Caluori – the son-in-law of Margaret Hodge.

Mr Panton said: “Do I think it is right that Margaret Hodge’s son-in-law now has this key position? Of course not. He may be a fine councillor, but I would think it is better that he is not in this position, given the association. While the politicians of the Eighties have moved on, their influence is still highly visible. It cannot be appropriate for any inquiry into this matter to be overseen by this MP’s relative.”

Mr Panton believes that “an independent police investigation into Islington is crucial. I know many abuse survivors who have not yet contacted Islington or the police. There is a real lack of trust – it is hard to tell your story when you risk being disbelieved or attacked.”

The whistleblower Dr Davies adds: “I think there could be more than one home with Savile connections. Children from Islington’s home at 114 Grosvenor Avenue were taken to Jersey by Rabet, and Savile visited Jersey’s Haut de la Garenne home. Survivors of abuse there have described being taken to an Islington children’s home.”

So Margaret Hodges’ successor in Islington was a man who helped paedo Derek Slade obtain a new ID!

he certainly was + the man doing the helping for the PAEDO was ELECTION AGENT UNTIL 5 YEARS AGO!

Revealed: How a close male relative of Baby P is linked to a big paedophile network

A close male relative of Baby P was feared to have recruited youngsters in care for a notorious paedophile ring, according to a secret report seen by The Mail on Sunday.

Although he is not believed to have had any contact with Baby P, his involvement in a child abuse scandal in Islington, North London, in the early Nineties raises questions on the extent of checks into Baby P’s background.

‘The family should have been subjected to forensic examination,’ said a child protection expert.

Dangerous ties: A close male relative of Baby P could have recruited children for a paedophile ring

‘Even cursory checks would have rung alarm bells. Social workers might then have removed the baby, as a paediatrician and police pleaded.’

The relative was named in reports as a victim and a feared recruiter of children for pimps.

In the early Nineties he was put in a children’s home.

At the time, all 12 of Islington’s then homes, and at least one of the boarding schools it used, had been infiltrated by paedophiles.

The relative, then a frightened 13-year-old, was under the control of three pimps – Alan, John and George – who persuaded him with money, drugs and threats to bring other children to them.

He tried in vain to blow the whistle and protect himself and other children.He gave social workers the names of others ferried from the homes to, he said, Manor Park, Tottenham, Soho and Westminster to ‘be buggered by old men’.

But none of the men were placed under surveillance or questioned.

Several social workers and managers fought hard to get help for the boy and other children targeted by the paedophiles.

Social worker Neville Mighty was deputy superintendent of Islington’s then unit at 18 Highbury Grove, where pimps slept overnight.

His boss claimed such men were simply ‘boyfriends’ and said Mighty was a prude to repress the children’s sexuality.

Mighty, who had received death threats, had named the relative in a report pleading with Islington’s then director of children’s services, Lyn Cusack, for help.

Ms Cusack, married to a senior policeman, did nothing save threaten disciplinary action because Mighty was ‘rude’. Eventually, in June 1992, Mighty was sacked.

Liz Davies, the senior Islington social worker who encouraged Mighty to go public, said: ‘We got too close. There were too many powerful people involved. Child sex, pornography and sadism are extremely lucrative industries.’

In 1994, a damning  independent report criticised the failure of police and social workers to help the relative and to help protect children in care in Islington.

Michelle Golding and the film “Beyond the hoodie”The estate was subject to a recent ITV documentary whereby a local MP, Ann Widdecombe, spent a night in one of the flats to highlight the supposed problem of youths causing trouble at all hours.

The youth of Andover Estate recently got together with a London film maker Michelle Golding [1] to produce a film [2] rebutting the Ann Widdecombe programme.

Young residents put across their side of the story to demonstrate that they are more likely to be victims of crime than perpetrators.

The film highlights the actual reduction in crime on the estate over the last couple of years and the problem of much of the crime being committed by non-residents. It also discusses the negative impact created by the sloppy journalism of the Ann Widdecombe film. This was brought into sharp focus by the murder of a 14 year old boy in July 2007.

One of the Uk’s top rappers Skinnyman grew up on the nearby Six Acres Estate and also spent many of his younger years hanging around on Andover Estate. His highly acclaimed album Council Estate of Mind is believed to be about his upbringing in this area.

Johnny Rotten also grew up on the nearby Six Acres Estate.

On the edge of the estate on Sonderburg Road by Seven Sisters Road is Harmsworth hospital, (named and built after Sir Harold Harmsworth) an animal hospital run by the RSPCA, which was the focal point of the television reality TV series Animal Hospital, and was presented by popular TV personality Rolf Harris.

Council offers £25-a-week jobs to children on Widdy’s estate

According to a council report into inequality, Islington has the second highest rate of child poverty in England, with no one working in more than three quarters of the poorest households

Schoolchildren as young as 14 are to be offered adult jobs such as repairing roads and clerical work in a bid to give them a “work ethic”.

Islington council wants to pay new “junior assistants” £25 to work up to eight hours a week, which it hopes will break the cycle of unemployment in deprived areas of the borough.

A pilot scheme will begin on the Andover Estate in Finsbury Park, which suffers chronic unemployment and was branded a “dump” by former Tory MP Ann Widdecombe in 2007 when she stayed there for an ITV documentary Ann Widdecombe Vs The Hoodies. She described the estate as “very nasty, very threatening” and the youngsters living there as “thugs”.

And  Holloway Prison (Claire Rayner/Boateng/Longford Myra Hindley etc) is nearby
…………………………………………………………………….Holloway Prison

HC Deb 13 May 1983 vol 42 c511W 511W§ Mr. Christopher Priceasked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement about the exclusion of the head of the education department by the governor of Holloway prison from that institution on the grounds that he was in contact with a former inmate; and what is his policy about such contacts.§ Mr. MellorAs part of their general responsibilities for assisting prisoners in preparing for release prison education officers sometimes maintain contact with former prisoners after release. But under rule 81 of the Prison Rules they are required to make the governor aware of such contacts, and it is open to the governor to prohibit them if in the particular case he considers it advisable to do so in the interests of good order and discipline. I understand that in the case to which the hon. Member refers the governor considered it necessary to prohibit contact by the education officer with a particular prisoner and instructed him to give a formal written assurance that he would comply with that instruction. When the education officer failed to give that asssurance the governor requested his employer, the Inner London Education Authority, to withdraw him from the prison pending a formal hearing of the case as provided under his conditions of service. That hearing is due to take place on 26 May and it would be inappropriate for me to comment further at this stage.

The head of the education department, at that time was the recently outed, by msm, Sir Keith Joseph.
Thatcher later referred to Joseph as her closest political friend
Keith Harding’s shop:

One of his staff, who worked for him between 1980 and 1987, said: “Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith were both regular visitors to the shop. Usually they would come in via the side door, other times they would ring the bell at the front entrance and come in.“They’d straight away ask for Keith who would be coming down the stairs. “Then they would then either go up to his office for a private meeting or they’d go out for several hours.” The former worker added: “The shop had many high profile customers, including the Royals, because we were one of the few antique dealers in the world that specialised in restoring clocks, music boxes and automatons.


“It’s only now, with what I know about Brittan and Smith, and of course Keith, that has made me wonder what they were doing. Jeremy Thorpe too was an occasional visitor.” Harding was given the Freedom of the City of London and made a member of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers. He moved to Gloucester in 1987 after PIE disbanded, setting up Keith Harding’s World of Mechanical Music, a museum in Northleach, near Cheltenham.
Stephen Govier, a man who lived by the gun, contributed to Bloch’s book on Jeremy Thorpe!

Isn’t it interesting that Jeremy Thorpe would have gone to live in the place gunman Stephen Govier suddenly absconded to. The very same Govier who was mates with Derek Laud and returned to live with Atkinson MP who had Thorpe’s possessions?
