COMMANDER CHARLES ARTHUR HOWESON – colleague of Prince Philip and Prince Charles – charged with buggery

COMMANDER CHARLES ARTHUR HOWESON – colleague of Prince Philip and Prince Charles – charged with buggery

 

Mar 3, 2017

Police say the charges are two counts of buggery, one of attempt buggery and 12 counts of indecent assault.

These matters relate to 10 alleged victims, all of whom are male.

At the time of the alleged offences one was aged 14/15, another was aged between 16 to 18 and eight were described as being in their early 20s.

Howeson was raised in Mevagissey in Cornwall, joined the Royal Navy in 1967 before making his fortune as a property developer and launching his long career in the public, private and voluntary sector.

Howeson is vice president for life of the Plymouth Drake Foundation, a charity he founded in 2008 to help communities in the city.

In creating the foundation, from which he stepped down in 2012, Howeson established a so-called “charity of charities” designed to support individuals and groups through grants.

The jewel in the foundation’s crown is a £10 annual trust membership for 10,000 Plymothians.

It is believed Mr Howeson, aged 61, is the only figure on the list who was actually a naval officer.

Ultimately it will involve me being an ambassador to the Royal Naval Reserves.

It’s business as usual for Prince Andrew

  • Thursday 10 March 2011

Buckingham Palace today moved to shore up Prince Andrew’s image by announcing a series of engagements with British businesses.

Prince Andrew met the Queen on Tuesday following the controversy over his friendship with convicted child sex offender Jeffery Epstein. The Standard understands she gave her son her “full support”.

Charles Howeson, who will host a lunch for the Duke (Prince Andrew) at the Plymouth Business Area Association, said that he was a major asset to UK firms hoping to trade abroad. Mr Howeson added: “He has been doing this longer than civil servants and probably longer than many company chairmen, and he has built up a network of contacts that is incomparable.”

Rear-Admiral Sir Richard Trowbridge, who died on Sunday aged 83, was the first officer to rise from boy sailor to captain of the Royal Yacht Britannia and the last Briton to serve as Governor of Western Australia.

A personal friend of Prince Philip since they had served in the British Pacific Fleet at the end of the Second World War, he had an unusually long-serving and successful term as Flag Officer Royal Yachts from 1970 to 1975 when Britannia

Trowbridge was commissioned in 1940 and served at sea throughout the Second World War. He was in the destroyer Wakeful after the end of hostilities with Japan when she transported prisoners of war to Sydney; and Lady Mountbatten was in charge of repatriation. Trowbridge was mentioned in dispatches.

This was when he met Prince Philip, who was first lieutenant of another destroyer in the 27th Destroyer Flotilla. Together they were in Tokyo Bay when the Japanese signed their surrender after atomic bombs had been dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Trowbridge was appointed KCVO in 1983.

Father Sam Philpott – Party to celebrate Priest’s MBE

July 31, 2012

Father Sam Philpott was ‘overwhelmed’ that parishioners at St Peters Church in Wyndham Square threw a party for him inviting along many people he had worked with over the years.

Father Philpott has been at the forefront of pioneering projects including the Ship homeless hostel, Plymouth Mediation and The Millfields Economic Development Trust, which he chairs. He also worked with sex offenders to try to get them to face up to their offences and lay down roots so they weren’t constantly travelling round.

He has been involved in schemes including Wheels, which encouraged children to work on car repairs, and Stables, which taught children how to interact more effectively by teaching them activities such as theatre and rock climbing.

He is currently involved in the Widening Horizons project which encourages children’s aspirations.

And he has worked with business leader Charles Howeson on the Drake Foundation which is “raising sums for good things in the city”.

He also sent out a huge thanks to Charles Howeson.

Biology teacher Freedman, 54, took early retirement from the school in 2008, but continued to be employed as a sailing teacher and was involved with the Royal Navy section of the school’s Combined Cadet Force up until his arrest in 2010.

Regarded as a pillar of the community he was honoured with the Queen’s Jubilee Medal in 2000, the Cadet Force Medal in 2002, and a clasp for that medal in 2009.

THERE was a strong Naval element at the annual Lord Lieutenant’s Reserve Forces and Cadets presentations for Merseyside. Not only was RN HQ Merseyside chosen as the venue, but Reserve Forces and Cadets Association Vice Chairman Cdr Cedric Loughran also deputised at the last moment to make the presentations. Three of the main recipients were shining examples of the best of Sea Cadet spirit. As well as teaching biology at the Merchant Taylors’ School in Crosby, Stephen Freedman (48) also dons the dark blue uniform of a lieutenant commander to lead the school’s Combined Cadet Force Naval Section. His citation for a Lord Lieutenant’s Certificate highlighted the fact that Stephen has filled this demanding role with great distinction, and is also second in command of the school’s cadet force. For many years he has run the CCF RN Camp at HMS Bristol at Whale Island, founded the annual Cadet Forces Regatta, staffed a yacht crewed by cadets sailing from Scotland to Norway, and runs the Bridge Trainer for the RN Cadet Camp at Dartmouth each summer.

Mr Freedman, who has been decorated for his naval work in schools, also occasionally took activities at Liverpool College in Mossley Hill.

From 1991 to 2008, he ran the Royal Naval Section of the Combined Cadet Force at Merchant Taylors’.

His expertise includes dinghy and power boat instruction.

And, in 2006, he was awarded the Lord Lieutenant’s Certificate given sparingly for military service beyond the call of duty. At the time, he said: “It has been the most rewarding part of my career and I like to think that my involvement has not only opened up opportunities for our cadets, but for myself as well.”

“Mr Freedman was an able and experienced member of the biology department who retired from teaching in July, 2008.

“The school has no further comment to make at this time, as the investigation is ongoing.”

The criminal investigation comes three months after a jury found 25-year-old Hannah McIntyre not guilty of having sex with a 16-year-old pupil while employed as a classics teacher at the school.

Dating back to 1620, the independent school is consistently among the country’s best performing.

Paul Burrell/Royal Yacht Britannia orgy scandal

In 1981, 11 members of the crew of the Queen’s yacht ‘Britannia’ were charged.


Paul Burrell (pictured fifth from right) was part of a orgy on the Royal Yacht Britannia, his agent claims. None of the people in the above photo of the Britannia are thought to have been involved in the reported orgy

Reports from 1981 show that a trial against naval members were held in secret, which prompted rumours of a cover-up, which officials denied.

The men involved were accused of ‘disgraceful conduct of a cruel, indecent or unnatural kind’, and sailors were arrested after X-rated photos were found during a drugs raid.

The Queen was kept up to date on disciplinary proceedings during the case, and Prince Phillip was shown a special report on the case, the Sun reported.

Buckingham Palace would not comment on claims that the Queen knew Mr Burrell was involved in the orgy.

The Queen reinstated me and said: ‘Paul, I am so glad to have you back. Let’s put this unsavoury business behind us.’

Mr Burrell has never talked about his sexuality even though it was well known within royal circles that he was gay.

In 1983 he wed Maria Cosgrove, a maid to the Duke of Edinburgh

Paul and Maria Burrell met while they were both working at Buckingham Palace, with Maria serving as the Duke of Edinburgh’s maid, and married in 1984.

An established tradition suggested one of them should give up their job with the Royal Family, but the Queen made an exception for them, allowing both to remain in Royal service.

Burrell, who entered Royal Service at age 18, as a Palace footman, became the Queen’s personal footman a year later.
 

Burrell was the only non-family member to be present at Diana’s private burial at the Spencer estate Althorp.

In 1993 she wrote a letter to him that claimed the Prince of Wales was plotting to kill

Is this Burrell? Press & palace spin story that he was sacked?

The commander of the Royal Britannia yacht, Sir Paul Greening, was promoted after the scandal.


The Queen Mother In A Gondola Venice Italy With Her Is Sir Paul Greening

1981 COMMANDER OF THE ROYAL BRITANNIA:

  Rear-Admiral Sir Paul Greening, commanded the Royal Yacht Britannia in her heyday, and afterwards succeeded to the 500-year-old office of Master of the Royal Household. 
He was appointed an Extra Equerry to the Queen in 1983 and Master of the Household of the Sovereign from 1986 to 1992.[1]

As Flag Officer Royal Yachts from February 1981 to August 1985, he was responsible for the vessel’s safety and efficiency, and for hosting receptions on behalf of the Queen at events held on board in support of British industry.

Greening’s first days in Britannia were spoilt by the dismissal (under the then law) of several homosexuals: the tabloid press had a field day, but he showed his imperturbability in dealing with it. A natural courtier, he had a boyish charm; the puckish impression given by his permanently raised eyebrows disguised an understanding of people, a mastery of detail and an absolute loyalty to the Crown.

As Master of the Household from 1986 to 1992 Greening was a successful head of staff of all the Queen’s palaces, responsible for 250 chefs, sommeliers, event planners, craftsmen, pages and footmen, housekeepers and postmen.

He was a Younger Brother of Trinity House.

The ‘gay mafia’ of the royal household

09/11/2002

Paul Burrell

The rumours have been washing through Fleet Street. Queen Elizabeth intervened in Paul Burrell’s trial, they alleged, to avoid his going into the witness box at the Old Bailey and revealing tales of homosexual rape, male orgies and a gay mafia in control of the royal household.

That there is at least some truth in them has only fanned the gossips’ flames. Prince Charles acknowledges running up a legal bill of at least £100,000 (?160,000) on behalf of a trusted member of staff accused of raping another man. The allegation was widely known in the household, as the Spectator magazine, a staunch defender of the monarchy, reported.

Burrell received the Royal Victorian Medal


09/11/2002

Twenty years ago, Buckingham Palace investigated an alleged homosexual orgy on the royal yacht Britannia, when Burrell was a footman. One member of staff was required to resign.

Some whisper that Burrell was implicated in those events; others mention a telephone call to Scotland Yard after Burrell’s arrest. The Australian caller described “alleged aspects of Burrell’s private conduct that might not entirely tally with his public image”, according to the Spectator.

“a suspicion is taking root that the homosexual mafia that infiltrates the court has had a criminal case stopped to protect the prince from sordid revelations concerning one of its own.

Buckingham Palace butler ‘ran paedophile sex ring while working for the Royal Family’

A former Buckingham Palace butler has been unmasked as a sexual predator who  ran a paedophile ring while serving the Royal Family.

Bachelor Paul Kidd, 55, groomed at least one of his teenage victims for sex by taking him for tea with the Queen Mother at Clarence House, it has emerged.

In 1976 he was appointed as butler to the Queen at Buckingham Palace and served there for six years until being transferred to Clarence House where he served the Queen Mother.

During his years in Royal service, he was said to have met and looked after three American Presidents including Jimmy Carter and Ronald Regan plus many other Heads of State from around the world.

He also appeared on stage with Hollywood actor Robin Williams at the Nemacolin Spa & Resort Centre in the USA.

On the last day of his trial the Queen suddenly remembered that Diana did give him some gifts strange that…

Rape tape that set royal alarm bells ringing

As Princess Diana sat by his hospital bedside, the royal manservant had no idea a tape was secretly running inside her handbag.

During their 30-minute conversation, Diana listened sympathetically as he made the astonishing allegation that he had been raped by another male member of the palace staff.

Paul Burrell knew both the ‘victim’ – who is a close friend of the former butler – and the man accused of the violent homosexual assault.

The alleged rapist works closely with Charles.

Last night the Prince was said to be terrified that the man could be identified.

That fear of exposure was increasingly being seen as a possible explanation for the dramatic last-minute royal intervention that led to the collapse of the Old Bailey trial last week.

The Royal Family were terrified that, once Burrell took the witness stand, he would divulge sensational and hugely-damaging secrets – in particular, the existence of the ‘rape-tape’ recording.

It was the explosive tape police were desperately seeking when they raided Burrell’s Cheshire home searching for the so-called ‘Crown Jewels’.

A Scotland Yard inquiry into the alleged rape took place at the same time as the Burrell theft investigation and both were led by the same police officer, Maxine de Brunner.

During the police investigation, former members of the Royal Household were interviewed in intimate detail about the alleged incident and asked ‘prurient questions’ about Charles himself.

The man allegedly assaulted, who has a wife and children from whom he is separated, has since left the royal household with a £50,000 payoff and, as with all palace staff, was required to sign a confidentiality agreement.

At the time several senior royal aides carried out an internal palace inquiry and reported back to Prince Charles and his solicitor Fiona Shackleton.

Charles – said to regard his aide as a ‘loyal and necessary person’ – took the unprecedented step of employing one of the country’s top law firms, Kingsley Napley, to defend him against the rape allegations.

Such was his concern for the servant that Charles is understood to have phoned the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir John Stevens when the inquiry was launched.

Just over two weeks after Jimmy Savile emerged from his heart operation, Princess Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris. He was invited to the funeral service at Westminster Abbey but was too weak to attend.

In our final interview, I asked Savile again about his relationships with the royals. ‘What you’ve got to realise is how many books have been written about them by people who don’t really know them,’ he said. ‘Paul Burrell and people like that.’

I put it to him that having worked as Diana’s butler for ten years, Burrell must have surely known her better than most. ‘Yes, he did,’ said Savile, suddenly changing his tune.

‘I helped him get out of his court case.’

In 2002, Burrell was charged with the theft of items belonging to the Princess of Wales but the trial collapsed when it emerged the Queen had spoken to him and a public interest immunity certificate was presented to the court.

‘That was something else,’ smiled Savile, leaning back in his chair, eyes tightly closed as if mentally picturing the next brick being laid on the wall.

‘Nobody could get him off the hook. The entire world had him on the hook. He fell out with [Diana’s] trustees … Paul was very upset about this and because he was so upset, he was a danger, you see.

So they invented this thing that he’d half-inched some of her gear, which he hadn’t.’

Colin Tucker, steward to Fiona Woolf, Fettesgate and the Scottish ‘Magic Circle’ Affair, and Wider Networks – Part 1

the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (the trial of a former teacher at which will take place in early 2015), and the City of London School for Girls (whose former trumpet teacher Helen Goddard was jailed in 2009 for abusing an underage girl, as detailed within this long post), there was a hitherto little commented-upon passage concerning an employee at Mansion House:

 

I believe it is appropriate to bring to your attention the report of an inquiry conducted in Scotland in 1993 relating to an allegation to pervert the course of justice. A current staff member at Mansion House, an employee of the Corporation, was referred to in that inquiry; the individual concerned was not in the employment of the Corporation during the time period mentioned in the report. Full details of the inquiry and its conclusions (at pages 106-107) are contained in the attached link to the full report (https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/228813/0377.pdf ). I can confirm that I have never discussed this issue with the individual and was unaware of the individual’s prior history until the matter was recently brought to my attention.

The individual in question is Anthony Colin Tucker, a former solicitor who has been steward to the Lord Mayor since the early 1990s. The report in question is W.A. Nimmo Smith QC and J.D. Friel,  In this audio interview, Tucker speaks about his work for the Lord Mayor in what is essentially a butler-like role, suggesting something rather closer than Woolf’s term ‘current staff member at Mansion House’ would imply.

The report refers to the now mostly forgotten almost 25-year old saga involving an alleged ‘Magic Circle’ within the Scottish legal establishment, in which gay judges were alleged to have given more lenient sentences to gay criminals because of fear of blackmail. Tucker’s own trial on charges of embezzlement, for which he was acquitted, was central to this affair; the trial came about after Tucker’s senior partner, Ian Walker, killed himself. One journalist, Graham Grant, Home Affairs Editor for the Scottish Daily Mail, reported on this connection this Saturday (October 25th, 2014), in this article below.

As mentioned by Grant, of central importance is the role of Tucker’s defence counsel, the late Robert Henderson QC. Henderson has been in the news again since his daughter Susie has claimed that she was abused by both him and the late former Scottish Solicitor General Sir Nicholas Fairbairn (Emma Cowing and Graham Grant, ‘I was raped aged 4 by top aide to Thatcher: Woman claims she was abused by senior Conservative MP who visited notorious guest house with paedophile Cyril Smith’, Daily Mail, August 14th, 2014), who has also been alleged to have been a visitor to the notorious Elm Guest House in Barnes, a key location for VIP guests to abuse young boys, said to have been delivered from care homes (‘Sir Nicholas Fairbairn in child abuse scandal link’, The Scotsman, July 13th, 2014). This has led to a renewed interest in the ‘magic circle’ allegations (see for example Jonathan Brocklebank, ‘A magic circle of judges, a sex abuse probe and the sinister truth about the Fettesgate scandal’, Daily Mail, August 14th, 2014), though until Grant no-one had made the connection with someone close to the Lord Mayor of London.

Tucker is also listed as a partner in a company entitled ‘LD Inns’, address 24 Howe Street, Edinburgh EH3 6TG, from March 9th 1988 to July 17th, 1989, together with a Burnett Walker and David Ben Aryeah. It turns out this was the notorious Laughing Duck gay bar (see Rory Knight Bruce, ‘Below the Law: It is a short walk from Edinburgh’s Court of Session to the Laughing Duck’, Spectator, January 27th, 1990), mentioned at various points in the 1993 report, and listed with a three star rating in the 1982 edition of Spartacus International Gay Guide for Gay Men; membership of Spartacus, which was run by Roman Catholic priest John Stamford, who was later convicted of sending pornographic material through the post, also notoriously gave discounts for stays at Elm Guest House, and championed PIE; Stamford also published PAN: A Magazine about Boy-Love

Tucker was also for seven years an elder at St Cuthbert’s, next to Edinburgh Castle (Bruce McKain, ‘Solicitor tells fraud trial his partner had hold over him’, Glasgow Herald, December 16th, 1989). Burnett Walker was also a director of a delicatessen, Victors of Edinburgh; Edinburgh-born David Ben-Aryeah worked for the Israeli military, as a travel agent, and was one of the first journalists to report on the Lockerbie disaster

Amongst other matters, this affair demonstrates the importance that the inquiry incorporates Scotland as well (and Northern Ireland, where the Kincora Boys’ Home scandal is said to have involved intelligence operatives from the mainland). Not only is Fairbairn alleged to have been linked to abusers in both England and Scotland, but also the Paedophile Information Exchange was itself founded in Scotland, in Glasgow in 1974 by Ian Campbell Dunn and Michael Hanson as an outgrowth of the Scottish Minorities Group, of which Fairbairn was himself honorary vice-president in the early 1970s (Guy Adams and Andrew Malone, ‘Revealed: The Full horrifying truth about Sir Nicholas Fairbairn – the other paedophile at Margaret Thatcher’s side’, Daily Mail

 

In the meantime, it is reported today that Fiona Woolf may have to face a second appearance before the Home Affairs Select Committee … it is important that Keith Vaz MP and other members of the committee also question her over this affair and whether it represents a significant conflict of interests.

Below I reproduce a wide range of articles from Tucker’s trial, through the course of the ‘Magic Circle’ and ‘Fettesgate’ affairs, up until the release of the report

Part 2 will include subsequent articles on the affair, the allegations of sexual abuse made in 2000 against Robert Henderson, then some obituaries of Henderson, followed by recent press articles which have revisited these affairs, relating to Henderson and Fairbairn. The Fettesgate affair related to the theft of a report by Detective Inspector Robert Orr on ‘Homosexuality and the Criminal Law’, relating to the possibility of a homosexual network in the legal profession, which can be read here. This is a complex and detailed affair which requires extensive reading.

ORGY on the Royal Yacht Britannia

  • The orgy aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia reportedly took place in 1981
  • The orgy supposedly involved members of the navy, who were later dismissed
  • Mr Burrell wasn’t arrested for the orgy, nor did he face criminal charges because he ‘was the Queen’s right hand man at that point’, Burrell’s agent said

‘Paul was there. But he wasn’t arrested or subjected to any sort of criminal charges because he was the Queen’s right hand man at that point.’

Ah, now I get it: If you’re Queenie’s right-hand man you can get away with blue murder!

11 Britannia Crewmen Charged In Sex Scandal 

The Britania charges happened on the same day as Dickens named PIE member/paedophile Sir Peter Hayman

11 sailors from the crew of Elizabeth II’s official yacht Britannia were charged with “disgraceful conduct of a cruel, indecent or unnatural kind”…
It was Britain’s second official sex scandal in less than 24 hours.
Earlier Wednesday, a former British ambassador to Canada, Sir Peter Hayman, was named as the senior civil servant previously reported involved with a child pornography group.
The Britannia cases were heard behind closed doors.

Shortly before Charles and Diana married on July 29, 1981, the Queen apparently suspended Burrell from his job as footman after he was implicated in a gay pornography ring on the Royal Yacht Britannia  – and only gave him his job back on the understanding that he would marry his now wife Maria (who worked for the Duke of Edinburgh). 

‘Because Paul was the Queen’s footman he was treated like royalty by the other staff and had his own maid.

Plymouth ex-detective said Cyril Smith child abuse probe mirrors Goad inquiry

A FORMER Plymouth detective who helped bring paedophile William Goad to justice said she is not surprised Met officers may have been told to halt their inquiry into child abuse by Cyril Smith and other public figures.

Recent news reports claim investigators were ordered to hand over evidence and quit their inquiry into the Liberal MP after his arrest.

Smith was held during a 1980s probe into alleged sex parties with teenage boys in south London, a former Met officer told the BBC’s Newsnight programme.

In 2013, former detective Shirley Thompson told The Herald of her long-standing concerns about the Goad inquiry. Goad was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2004 after he admitted sexually abusing more than a dozen boys.

She noted what she believed was a number of failures by Devon and Cornwall Police, including failing to act on statements by his victims of other paedophiles operating in and around Plymouth.

She said senior officers told her to “put a lid on it” and concentrate her investigation solely into Goad.

She said: “Reading the newspapers today was like a repeat of what I saw with Goad – officers being told to stop investigating, told to ignore evidence, and young men being left to be abused by others. This is what Goad’s victims said for years. It’s what I was told during the inquiry – “put a lid on it and concentrate on Goad”.

“So much of that investigation was not finished. There was an immense possibility and probability there was communication between him and other paedophile offenders in Britain after he fled to Thailand, but no one bothered to look into it.

“There was evidence he snatched boys in other cities and shared his victims with other paedophiles in London and Manchester, but no-one looked into it.”

Shirley said her attempts to get other cases fully investigated in 2004, after Goad was jailed, met with silence. It took another year – and a damning BBC Panorama programme criticising Devon and Cornwall Police – to see an investigation into other men previously mentioned. Even then, only one – Peter Norsworthy – was brought to justice. But by then she said she had been sidelined and left the force soon after suffering breast cancer.

She said: “In relation to the child abuse inquiry in London, I wonder how many whistle blowers have lost their jobs or been ignored and sidelined over the years?

“Now they’re talking about the Met investigating the Met over whether they protected suspected paedophile MPs.

I suppose it could be worse – they could ask Devon and Cornwall Police to do it, or South Yorkshire Police, after the child abuse scandal in Rotherham.

“They need specialist independent investigators, who cannot be influenced or pressured. That way no-one could threaten them with disciplinary action, threaten them with the Official Secrets Act. They would be able to go where the evidence guides them – not senior officers and not politicians.”

Shirley said that despite being told not to go on fishing trips for information, she would often gather damning statements from victims before alerting her superiors.

She said: “We would interview victims who led us to other victims and we’d interview them and so on. After we’d gathered the evidence senior officers would write the action up after the fact, when it should’ve been the other way around. When other suspect names were mentioned we were told ‘don’t go there’.

“Goad would’ve pleaded not guilty if we had stuck to what we were told to do.”

Inside the mind of Plymouth’s most notorious paedophile

April 08, 2017

goadmarket

William Goad was a millionaire whose career began on a market stall

One of Britain’s most prolific paedophiles – Plymouth businessman William Goad – stopped attempting suicide in prison after he believed he would be freed six years into his life sentence.

Goad, of Ford Park Road, was jailed for life at Plymouth Crown Court in October 2004 after he pleaded guilty to sexually abusing young boys.

During his sentencing hearing, prosecutor Martin Meeke QC, told the court: “It is believed there has been no single defendant with more victims than this man.”

Millionaire Goad was branded a ‘voracious, calculating, predatory and violent homosexual paedophile’ who had once boasted of beating his own ‘record’ of abusing 142 boys in a year

In that time he set up and ran the Mount Gould Camping Club, opened the Cornish Market World in St Austell with a business partner, and later opened a children’s play zone Ben’s Playworld in the same area.

The ‘strictly private and confidential’ minutes revealed how a man revealed during counselling how as a child he was abused by a paedophile gang, naming Goad as the ringleader. The psychiatrist revealed to the group the man had gone to police “in the summer of 1994” and listed other children also abused and names of “some of the paedophiles concerned”.

The minutes revealed how Goad’s house was “kitted out like a boys club” and that “in payment of the abuse the children suffered they were all given BMX bikes”

Some of the abused boys’ parents “had debts paid or overlooked and some were taken away for weekends by Bill Goad and associates”.

The minutes noted: “The weekends away were spent in other large cities such as London and Manchester where the boys were shared with other men in these cities.

“The boys were threatened to keep quiet and were paid off.”

Most ominously, the minutes noted: “It appears that some prominent men in society have or did have associations with this ring.”

William Goad (1944 – 20 October 2012) was a British millionaire businessman from Plymouth, Devon who was imprisoned for life for child rape. He was called in various newspapers “Britain’s most prolific paedophile”,[1][2][3] with his assaults causing two of his victims to commit suicide.[2]Goad was sent to prison for life in October 2004.[1] He pleaded guilty to two charges of indecent assault and 14 counts of rape.[a][4]He was described in court as a “voracious, calculating, predatory and violent homosexual paedophile” who sexually abused young boys over a 30-year period.[4]

Goad’s fortune was once estimated to be around £25 million.[6] Goad opened Cornish Market World in 1991, which became at one point Britain’s biggest indoor market with more than 300 stalls.[7]

In the mid-1990s Goad launched Ben’s Playworld, a children’s play zone hosting a range of activities aimed at 2 to 12-year-olds, including mega-slides, giant tubes and a massive ball-pond.[7]

Goad died of natural causes at HMP Isle of Wight, Albany on 20 October 2012.[4][9]

The idea that we keep the political and judicial systems apart in this country is sound. No one would want a crooked government being able to lean on the courts to make sure decisions always went the “right” way. But when you study this week’s decision to cut 10 years from the sentence handed down to Roy Whiting, the killer of Sarah Payne, you might come round to see the justice in my idea for a radical overhaul of our legal system.

Paedophile Army sergeant who raped a young girl has jail term cut by top judges

February 22, 2017

A paedophile army sergeant who raped one young girl and committed sex attacks on another has had his jail term cut by top judges.

Alan McCurry, 67, who served in the 4th Battalion Mercian Regiment, based in Farnborough, abused the victims during the 1970’s and 1980’s.

McCurry lived in South Cerney, Gloucestershire, after leaving the Mercians in 1982. And he later served as a chef in a Territorial Army division of the Merseyside-based King’s Regiment.

He was arrested after one of the victims plucked up the courage to go to the police in 2010.

The sick ex-soldier was jailed for 15 years in July 2015 at Colchester Military Courts Centre.

He was convicted of two counts of rape, four of indecent assault and one of indecency with a child.

Lord Justice Simon, at London’s Criminal Appeal Court, cut his sentence by a year.

The judge, sitting with Mr Justice Holroyde and Mr Justice Soole, also heard McCurry’s bid to get his convictions overturned.

Lord Justice Simon commented:

“These were very serious offences with a devastating impact on the lives of the victims,” he added.

But aspects of the 15-year sentence were “unlawful” and the overall term had to be cut by a year.

British court refuses to extradite suspected American paedophile

UK judges say Roger Giese, a fugitive from FBI since 2007, can only be sent to US after assurances his human rights will not be breached

The two judges at the high court in London made it clear that if no assurance was given, they would refuse to hand over Roger Giese, 40, to stand trial in California, where he is charged with sexually abusing a boy under the age of 14 from 1998 until 2002.

The former choirmaster has been living in a village in Hampshire under a different name and working for a PR company.

Giese is wanted in Orange County, California, for allegedly committing “lewd acts” with a child. He is alleged to have befriended the boy in 1998, when he was working as a voice coach for the All-American Boys Chorus. He fled the US eight years ago just as he was about to stand trial.

An extradition request from the US was certified by the Home Office in May 2014, and Giese was arrested on 4 June last year. But magistrates court district judge Margot Coleman refused the request last April.

Lord Justice Aikens and Mr Justice Holroyde stated in a joint written judgment that Coleman was right to conclude that extradition would be “inconsistent” with Giese’s ECHR rights. The judges said that if no assurance was given “in due time”, the US government appeal for the right to extradite must be dismissed.

According to a Daily Mirror investigation, Giese set up home with a new partner in the Hampshire countryside. There was no suggestion she knew about his past. Together, the pair built a PR company with clients including the travel firm (Savile-linked)Thomas Cook.

  • Survivors say he was not the only abuser
  • Official report concluded that investigators could have done more
  • Now police launch a fresh search for other paedophiles in the case

William Goad

Police have launched a new investigation into Britain’s worst ever paedophile after an internal report revealed that officers failed to hunt down his sick accomplices.

Goad died last year in prison aged 68, but some of his survivors have long suspected there were others involved in his child abuse ring who escaped the net.

Their claims have now been backed by a police probe which said detectives focused so narrowly on Goad that they sidelined claims he had help.

The report by Devon and Cornwall Police’s Professional Standards Department (PSD) said hundreds of possible new victims have come forward after his conviction but none had even been interviewed properly.

Survivors have always claimed he had links with other paedophiles and sometimes abused boys with them.

A police document from 1996 warned that Goad’s abuse ring contained ‘prominent members of society’ – but none were ever identified.

Devon and Cornwall Police launched their internal probe after a complaint was lodged last November by Paul Wyatt, who was abused by Goad in his teens and has campaigned for years to see the case reopened.

The PSD referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission but insisted the force had correctly followed its policy at the time and did not recommend specific disciplinary action.

However, investigators agreed there was a possibility other survivors ‘might have also been abused by other offenders and thus the lack of any police action has potentially meant these offenders have retained their liberty and continued their offending behaviour’.

Mr Wyatt, who said survivors who came forward were simply given a crime number and referred to support services, welcomed the new inquiry.

He said: ‘Of the 17 witnesses who originally were part of the trial which led to Goad’s eventual conviction, some had named other paedophiles connected to Goad who had also abused them. This information eventually led to the convictions of other paedophiles in the last few years.

‘What if these other hundreds of victims, that came forward but were never allowed to make statements, were abused by others as well?

‘They were just given crime reference numbers and a telephone helpline to ring. It means their offenders have been active in Plymouth for all this time without ever being brought to book.’

Mr Wyatt was backed by former detective constable Shirley Thompson, who helped secure Goad’s life sentence in 2004.

William Alexander Goad – companies
Where are William Goad’s lost millions?
And by the 90s Goad was a rich
man. He was a joint owner of a huge indoor market in Cornwall. The business is worth several million.
He knew his share would be at risk if he was arrested and ordered to compensate his victims. In 1998 he
fled abroad. With a false passport Goad set about hiding not just himself but his assets too. He was now
wanted for questioning.Secret filmingBut when police approached Ken Gorvin, associate and business partner of over 30 years, he couldn’t help.
Did he ever offer you any help to tell you where Mr Goad was?SLEVIN: Certainly no information came to us to indicate where he was.POWYS: So there was no information from Mr Govin that “Yes, I know where he is and this is where he
is”?SLEVIN: No.POWYS: What police didn’t know was that the two men were in contact. In October 1999, while he was
on the run, Goad travelled to Spain to meet Gorvin. There they struck a deal. What exactly they agreed
isn’t known, but what is clear from the company documents is that Bill Goad resigned from the business and
transferred his shares. Ken Gorvin became the sole director of a new company in which he and his family
hold all the shares.
In 2003 Goad ventured back to the UK and stayed at this hotel on the outskirts of
Plymouth, he was caught and arrested on his way back from a meeting with Gorvin and lawyers to discuss
the Cornish market’s trading hours. It was then police found out Goad was booked into the hotel under his
false identity.He was booked in under the alias.SLEVIN: Yes.POWYS: What name was given?SLEVIN: The name of Gorvin was used to confirm the booking.POWYS: So the name of Ken Gorvin was used.SLEVIN: And to confirm the credit card booking, yes.POWYS: Was it paid by credit card, cash? How was it paid for?SLEVIN: It was by credit card in the name of Gorvin.Secret filmingPOWYS: Mr Gorvin declined to answer our questions saying we were acting maliciously. We wanted to
ask if he knew of Goad’s false identity and how the business assets had been dispersed. At Goad’s
sentencing the court heard that his money from the deal must have been secreted or hidden, and that as a
result, there was nothing left to compensate the victims. Most of those victims can’t sue Goad either. The
law says victims of abuse have to sue within six years of turning 18. For Ian Gibbons it’s too late, he’s too
old, and he’s been warned his record may put off the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. They
make awards to victims of violent crime, but not always if they themselves have gone on to offend.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/nol/shared/spl…/crimewave.txt

As I mentioned, Goad was extremely close to Gorvin and they were in partnership in the majority of Goad’s companies. Lots of chopping and changing within the companies, no doubt hiding the assets. One of the companies Cubic Vision was originally called Charlie’s Adventureworld and it is this company that eventually appears to have been sold by the now sole owner Ken Gorvin before he set off for a life in Australia.

http://www.townandcountrymarkets.co….ture-land.html

I believe this to be Gorvin, married Mel Gorvin in 2008 and now living what appears to be a very comfortable life in Perth Australia.

Unfortunately those that were abused appear to have received no financial compensation, as the majority of Goad’s millions simply disappeared.

Edit: Yes that is definitely the Gorvins as Mel Gorvin’s Facebook page has a ‘friend’ in the name of Donna Hood who was the company secretary for almost all William Goad’s companies. Perhaps she knows where the money has gone?

Did corrupt Plymouth policeman tip off Britain’s worst paedophile William Goad?

 February 28, 2014

A “CORRUPT” police detective is feared to have helped derail investigations into one of Britain’s most notorious paedophiles.

William Goad was jailed for life in 2004 after he admitted sexually abusing more than a dozen boys.

However, his survivors have long claimed that Goad appeared to act with impunity for many years.

Goad himself used to boast to his victims that he was untouchable.

Police officers were seen going to Goad’s address while he was under observations by a officers from special “Task Force”.

One officer, who has since died, is repeatedly mentioned in the report and his action have been described as “suspicious” and the decision to have him be part of a later investigation into Goad’s abuse as “concerning”.

The report by PSD notes that in the early 1980s the Task Force conducted observations on Goad’s house “as a result of intelligence received believed to be regarding underage sex at the address”.

One of the two officers who carried out the observations told PSD investigators he recalled how a Detective Constable [Mike} Foulden was seen going to the address.

An Inspector who led the operation, but who has since retired, also confirmed Det Con Foulden’s unexpected presence at Goad’s home.

When police finally raided the property, believing they would find incriminating evidence such as video recordings, they instead found nothing, except “Masonic material”, he report says.

The officer carrying out the observations told PSD investigators that “it appeared that Mr Goad was expecting the police”.

The retired Inspector also told PSD investigators he believed the operation might have been compromised by Det Con Foulden.

The matter was referred upwards to another senior officer.

Another officer – who retired as a distinguished senior officer – was interviewed by PSD investigators and recalled how when they were a constable, they remembered Det Con Foulden coming into the Task Force office and asking questions about the operation.

This incident was also referred to the Task Force supervisors as it was thought “suspicious”.

The PSD report notes that the visit of Det Con Foulden to Goad’s home, together with the suspicion at the time that the observations might have been compromised by him, “does highlight the question of what, if any action, was taken in regards to this.”

Paul has bitterly complained that in 1986, when he was collected for interview by two officers about the abuse he suffered at the hands of Goad.

One of them was Det Con Foulden.

During the trip to the police station, he said the officer said to him: “We’ve heard that Billy Goad popped your cherry”.

As a result of this comment, and others during police interview, Paul felt he could only reveal a small part of the abuse he suffered.

He did not make a fuller statement until 1994, which saw the launch of a new investigation.

This investigation was binned after the Crown Prosecution Service said further charges would be an “abuse of process”.

Two years later more victims came forwards but as police launched another investigation, Goad fled to Thailand until he return in 2003.

At his sentencing the successful Plymouth market trader was described by Judge William Taylor as “a voracious, calculating and predatory paedophile over the past 40 years who has corrupted generations of boys aged between eight and 16”.

The PSD report, which was launched to investigate whether a number of officers were seen going to Goad’s home, has found Paul Wyatt’s complaint cannot be upheld.

However, Paul feels it has uncovered a likely explanation as to why Goad escaped justice for so many years.

Paul told The Herald: “When Foulden said in the police car he’d heard Goad had “popped my cherry” I had not told anyone else at that stage.

“He had come to me because another victim had said I was also victim of Goad’s – but he never said what Goad had done.

“I believe the only way he would’ve known that detail was from Goad himself.

“Because of what he said, and how he behaved during the interview, I never made a full disclosure to him.

“Because of Foulden’s impact on me, Goad was allowed to carry on abusing boys for another 15 years.”

Some quarters have suggested that there could be an innocent explanation, in that Det Con Foulden was a golfer, who played for a police golf team and often encouraged local businesses to sponsor prizes and that his visit to Goad’s address may have been to garner sponsorship.

His arrival at the Task Force office may have been genuine interest in the inquiry and his comments to Mr Wyatt may have come about due to the officers’ “brash, larger than life character”, rather than any dishonesty.

This is dismissed by Paul, who notes that other officers had flagged Det Con Foulden up to senior officers in the early 1980s for his possible links to Goad, yet he was later given a significant role in investigating allegations against the market trader.

He said: “I believe he was aiding and abetting Goad.

“I believe he was feeding Goad statements.

“Just after I made my first statement to police I had the first attempt on my life.

“Other victims of Goad had been sent to get me, one with a big bowie knife.”

He said Det Con Foulden also intimidated him during the 1986 interview, using a specific piece of information which Paul never revealed to police until years later.

He said: “Foulden threatened me with a charge on an incident which involved me and someone else.

“The only way he could’ve found out about it was from direct contact with Eddie Pratt, a man closely linked to Goad, who was later exposed by BBC Panorama as a paedophile.

“I did not reveal this information until I was interviewed in 2005 by Det Con Shirley Thompson.

“There was no way he could’ve know it, unless he was in contact with Eddie Pratt or from Goad himself.

“That information was not in the public domain, or even known to police.

“I think he threatened me in an attempt to keep me quiet regarding Goad.”

Police finally launched Operation Faber into Pratt and others in April 2005.

Eighteen days after Paul gave a video interview, disclosing his abuse at the hands of seven men, including Pratt, Pratt committed suicide by hanging in France.

The operation in the jailing of Peter Norsworthy for 15 years for nine counts of rape.

In 1987 Goad was sentenced to six months, suspended for two years, for the three counts of indecent assaults on Paul.

He was found not guilty on sexual assault charges on six other boys.

Goad died of natural causes in HMP Albany on the Isle of Wight in October 2012.

Paul fears these other boys were also interviewed – and put off giving a fuller account – by Det Con Foulden.

He said: “Foulden interviewed several boys.

“He was one of the main investigators.

“Goad got not guilty’s on all but my charges.”

Paul said the finding by the PSD report, that there was “no case to answer” was “bitter-sweet”.

He said: “It touches on the concept that police knew there was something suspicious about Foulden. A number of officers raised concerns about Foulden at the time, including the observation team and a senior investigating officer. Since then some of Goad’s victims have mentioned Foulden.”

Following a separate complaint by Paul, police last year launched a new investigation made “during and since previous inquiries” into Goad.

Paul said: “It all shows the difference between policing back then and how brilliant it is now.

“Now victims feel safer than ever. They know they will be listened to and it will be properly investigated. That’s what this has always been about for me.”

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police: “The allegations subject of the complaint have been fully investigated by our Professional Standards Department which has involved interviewing both serving and some retired officers.

“However no evidence has been gained to support the allegations and the complaint is not upheld.”

FORMER DETECTIVE: ‘COMPLACENCY, CORRUPTION AND NEGLECT LED TO A DECADE OF FURTHER ABUSE’

THE detective who helped jail Goad said she has long believed there was a “corrupt officer” who “compromised” earlier investigations.

Former Det Con Shirley Thompson said the PSD investigation still leaves questions unanswered.

She said: “I still would like to know the justification for not going to Thailand to seize Goad’s computer after he returned to the UK under a false name.

“It could have given us a lot of information.

“We know he was sending e-mails and had access to a computer, because we had access to information he was sending them to his business partner in England.

“If he was a major drug dealer they would’ve had an officer on the next aeroplane.

“But the rape of young boys? They were not even going to suggest it. It was a case of “put a lid on it” because they were frightened allegations of corruption were going to come out.

“Why was there no investigation of Goad’s Blackpool trip where he procured boys? No investigation into allegations about Goad’s journeys to other cities with kids being kidnapped and abused?

“Why was Goad allowed to live under an pseudonym in Ivybridge before he fled to Thailand?

“If Goad did not know police were after him, why did he use a pseudonym?”

In September last year, The Herald exclusively reported how the former detective had repeatedly urged her bosses in 2004 to go further with the investigation into other alleged abusers linked to Goad, but to no avail.

She said she had first heard Det Con Foulden mentioned in the 1990s in relation to another case.

She said: “I was a probationary officer, dealing with a nuisance phone call case. The woman mentioned a man who was linked to boys’ homes. She said Det Con Foulden would go ‘dining’ with this man on a weekly basis.

“Years later the man committed suicide after a boy made allegations of abuse.

“I heard there had been surveillance years before so I contacted the detective who made the surveillance.

“The detective said I wouldn’t find any of it, saying ‘some people are untouchable’.

“I went to a CID officer asking what should I do with the information I was being given by this woman about this abuser. The detective said leave it with me, but came back later and said if I valued my job, I should burn the lot.”

“I do believe there was a corrupt officer who compromised the initial inquiries.

“There is still so much that needs answering.

“As Paul has said before, there should be a public inquiry.

“I believe that because of complacency, neglect and corruption, it led to a decade more of boys being raped by Goad.”

Well known children’s home in Devon has been temporarily shut down. 

Dame Hannah Rogers children’s home in Ivybridge shut down amid police probe

August 08, 2014

A HOME for children with disabilities has been temporarily closed and alternative living arrangements made pending a police probe.

Details emerged yesterday that children’s residential services at Dame Hannah Rogers Trust children’s unit in Ivybridge have been suspended until at least mid September.

Devon County Council had to plan alternative care arrangements after the action was taken on Tuesday night.

It is understood that the suspension came after the Trust referred itself to the authorities over safeguarding issues.

One of the UK’s oldest charities, Hannahs has sites in Ivybridge and Seale-Hayne, Newton Abbot. It provides learning, care and support to children and adults with a range of disabilities.

A Devon County Council spokesman said: “Due to on-going safeguarding concerns and police investigation the regulatory body Ofsted have made the decision to serve notice of temporary suspension on the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust home in Ivybridge.”All the social care and health authorities who fund placements at the home have been informed and are working together to plan alternative care arrangements.”Councillor James McInnes, Devon County Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for children, schools and skills, said: “We are very concerned about the difficulties this disruption in service places on children with very high needs and their families. We are working with regulators and all other authorities to find solutions to this situation as quickly as possible. We want to ensure the highest quality care for our most vulnerable children and adults and we place their safety at the upmost importance.”

CUB CLASS TRAVEL: Alison Seabeck, left, and Charles Howeson, right, present tickets

A SCOUT group travelled in style to London to collect their environmental awards.

Members of the 47th Plymouth (Langley) Scout Group won a special Green Apple award for their work in supporting villagers in Nepal.

The Scouts were given three first class rail tickets by First Great Western chairman Charles Howeson for their trip to the House of Commons this week.

The Scouts have been involved in fundraising for the charity Clinic Nepal, which was set up to provide a health clinic for the 20,000-strong community of Meghauli, which is 20 miles from the nearest hospital.

In October last year the Plymouth group, along with Scouts from Bristol, held a ‘Jungle Jamboree’ with local Scouts in Nepal.

Fran Cramoysan, whose son Jez went to London this week, said they had laid the foundation stone for the new Scout hut last October, and hoped to have an opening ceremony when they take another group to Nepal in October 2009.

Mr Howeson said: “First Great Western is proud to be able to support Langley Scout Group.

“The work they have undertaken in Nepal is an example to us all. I also wish them good luck in representing their country in the European Awards for the Environment.

Derek Laud was an ex-Monday Club activist and protégé of Hamilton’s friend Michael Brown, who offered Hamilton a fee of £8,000 per year. Hamilton failed to register the paid-for consultancy. Hamilton took free trips to South Africa in the company of Brown.[19][20]

Clients

Until the 20th century Coutts was a clearing bank to the nobility and landed gentry, but today it is a wealth manager to a wider range of clients, including entrepreneurs, entertainers, sportsmen, professionals and executives. The British Royal Family is a noted client.[8][9] There are however stringent requirements to being accepted as a client, not just based on average and total financial assets. Prospective clients need at least £1,000,000 in investable assets, not including real estate.[10]

Coutts is seen as a bank for the rich and famous of British society. Like all banks, it is secretive about its client list. The bank has a regular presence at the annual Cannes Film Festival.[11]

Design

Coutts often collaborates with British fashion designers, including previous designs for its distinctive credit and debit cards. In 2004, British fashion designer and Savile Row tailor Ozwald Boateng designed the super-premium Coutts World Charge Card[12] whilst in 2006 Stella McCartney was commissioned to design the Coutts Visa debit card.[13

Further Inquiries into Abuse by British Barrister, John Smyth QC

United Kingdom April 13 2017

Further questions are being asked in relation to an alleged cover up of child abuse which was endured by teenage public school boys at the hands of a British barrister, John Smyth QC, in the 1970s and the 1980s.

On behalf of the Iwerne Trust, John Smyth ran religious summer camps in the 1970s and early 1980s, which were attended by boys from elite public schools. It is alleged that Smyth subjected the school boys to horrific beatings in order to purge them of their “sins”.

Allegations of abuse emerged back in 1982 after one of Smyth’s alleged victims attempted to commit suicide. In response, the Iwerne Trust commissioned an internal inquiry into the abuse which was conducted by Mark Ruston, a Church of England vicar. The report detailed the prescribed punishments for “sins” such as masturbation and pride, 100 and 400 strokes respectively. It was reported that over a three year period, eight boys had received 14,000 lashes between them, with two of the boys being whipped 4,000 times each. The report also stated that these beatings were carried out while the boys were either naked or semi-naked in order to “increase humility”.

Pupils of Winchester College were among the alleged victims and the allegations of abuse were disclosed by the Iwerne Trust to the college in 1982. In response, the headmaster of Winchester College at the time met with Smyth and made him undertake that he would never again enter the college or contact its pupils.

Like the Iwerne Trust, Winchester College failed to disclose the abuse to the police.

 

The survivor of abuse whose suicide attempt had prompted the inquiry fairly acknowledged that “everything could have been stopped” if the police had been informed.

The failure to report and prosecute John Smyth in the UK allowed him the opportunity of a fresh start when he moved to Zimbabwe in 1984. In Zimbabwe, Smyth founded the Zambesi Ministry, a series of Christian summer camps for boys from top public schools. It is alleged that at these summer camps, Symth abused teenagers in a similarly brutal way as he had done in the UK.

In 1997, Smyth was arrested and charged with killing a 16 year old boy named Guide Nyachuru, who was found dead in a swimming pool at one of the summer camps in 1992. It was also alleged by five other boys that Smyth had subjected them to abuse, including savage beatings. In 1998, the case of culpable homicide was dismissed against Smyth after it was claimed that prosecutors had overstated the claims and failed to follow procedures.

In 2002, Smyth moved from Zimbabwe to South Africa where he became a campaigner against gay rights.

The Church of England claims that it reported the abuse to the Cambridgeshire police in 2013, and again in February 2014, after an alleged victim came forward. However, because the allegations were non recent and there were difficulties with respect to the extradition of John Smyth from South Africa, no investigation was launched. In 2014, the allegations were separately reported to Hampshire police. However, the fact that the reporting party would not provide details of other victims or further information again prevented the police from opening an inquiry.

Last month Hampshire police initiated a formal investigation into the non recent allegations of sadistic abuse by John Smyth. They are appealing for anyone with any information about the events detailed above to get in contact with their investigation team, quoting Operation Cubic.

The leading QC John Smyth is accused of having brainwashed 22 young men Britain’s oldest public school, Winchester College in what victims now describe as a “cult”, persuading his victims the beatings could purge them of their sins.

Among them was Andy Moorse, who was 14-year-old pupil at Winchester College in 1975 when he was groomed. In less than two years, Moorse was accepting regular and violent beatings in  Smyth’s garden shed, he told the BBC.

Charles Napier was born in 1947 and John  Whittindale in 1959. – Paedophile Charles Napier was 12 yrs-old when little half-brother John was born.

Was Charles Napier a mentor to younger half-brother, John?

John Whittingdale’s father died in 1974 when John Whittingdale was 15 yrs old.

Both brothers have remained close to their mother.  Charles Napier was living with their mother when he was arrested.

http://www.gazette-news.co.uk/news/4682762.display/#

Mr Whittingdale is perfectly positioned to talk about the measures he and his family took to alert the relevant authorities whenever Napier took up a new post with access to children.

Mr Whittingdale will have the crucial insight into the family or environmental background that creates such a monster.

When letters arrived from Sweden, Cairo and Turkey to family members during a period when Napier was banned from teaching and Mr Whittingdale was firmly embedded in Non 10, what dilemmas did the family face, how did they deal with family loyalty as opposed to public duty expected of a powerful public figure.

In his diaries, Righton scored children according to how far the abuse went. This practice was revealed to Parliament by Tom Watson MP, whom Mr Briggs consulted after reading about Righton in a newspaper article.

It was following discussions with Tom Watson that Mr Briggs gave a statement to the police, as part of their Operation Fairbank into a high level paedophile conspiracy operating from Westminster.

Mr Briggs also approached specialist child abuse lawyer Tracey Emmott of Bedford-based Emmott Snell.

Righton also boasted of other friends in high places, including the late Leon Brittan, who was home secretary at the time.

Brittan has come under scrutiny in several child abuse investigations, though has been cleared of involvement in at least one. His widow has received an apology from the police.

But Righton claimed Brittan could influence judicial procedures in his favour should Mr Briggs ever find himself in trouble.

The only son of John Whittingdale FRCS[4] and Margaret née Napier,[5] via his mother Whittingdale is in distant remainder to the lordship of Napier.[6]

At the time of his paedophile offences one of Napier’s distant cousins was married to Sir Peter Hayman, a senior MI6 officer who was later himself exposed as a paedophile though never prosecuted.

How did  Charles Napier manage to continue teaching even after his first conviction for indecent assault in 1972?

In 1981 – on National Institute for Social Work headed paper – Righton wrote a letter to DoE:

In my view, Mr Napier is a gifted teacher of both adults and children.  I believe that, during the years since his conviction, he has acquired a knowledge and disciplined mastery of himself which would justify the conclusion that he no longer constitutes a sexual risk to children in his charge.  It would give me great pleasure – and cause me no anxiety – to hear that the Secretary of State had reviewed his decision of 24 November 1972, in Mr Napier’s favour.

John Smyth beat me first, appallingly, with his usual force. Then Simon Doggart took over while John watched”, said one victim who wished to be anonymous.

I recall immediately the absolute brutality of his beating – far, far worse than Smyth. There was no discussion, no emotion that I recall, just a fit sports man using all his force.

“Then it was over, this was going to be the new regime,” he told the BBC.

The leading QC is accused of having brainwashed 22 young men Britain’s oldest public school, Winchester College in what victims now describe as a “cult”, persuading his victims the beatings could purge them of their sins.

Among them was Andy Moorse, who was 14-year-old pupil at Winchester College in 1975 when he was groomed. In less than two years, Moorse was accepting regular and violent beatings in  Smyth’s garden shed, he told the BBC.

He revealed the boys would “bleed everywhere” from the beatings and when the beatings became too physical for Smyth to carry out alone, he claimed recruited Doggart to his cause.

The BBC said it had spoken to Doggart’s victims and had been handed nine hours of recording left unheard for years which reveal the full extent of the abuse. On one occasion, a victim was beaten for 12 hours.

The Apostles came to public attention again following the exposure of the Cambridge spy ring in 1951. Three Cambridge graduates with access to the top levels of government in Britain, one of them a former Apostle, were eventually found to have passed information to the KGB. The three known agents were Apostle Guy Burgess, an MI6 officer and secretary to the deputy foreign minister; Donald MacLean, foreign office secretary; and Kim Philby, MI6 officer and journalist.

Writers have accused several other Apostles of being witting Soviet agents. Roland Perry in his book, The Fifth Man (London: Pan Books, 1994) makes a circumstantial case against Victor Rothschild, 3rd Baron Rothschild, who was a friend to both Burgess and Blunt.

Jimmy’s work required him to spend weekdays in London where he spent many evenings with friends at the Garrick Club.

Dr. James Hamilton Doggart (22 January 1900 – 15 October 1989) was a leading ophthalmologist, [1] lecturer, writer, cricketer,[2] and a member of the Cambridge Apostles [3] and the Bloomsbury Group.
It was in Keynes’ rooms at King’s where friend and writer Peter Lucas introduced Jimmy to a secret society known as the Apostles. [9] Founded in 1829, this elite group of intellectual Jedis boasted Alfred Tennyson and Rupert Brooke amongst its past members.
During Jimmy’s association, fellow Apostles included philosophers Bertrand Russell and Ludwig Wittgenstein, writer Lytton Strachey, Soviet spies Anthony Blunt and Guy Burgess, novelist E.M. Forster and future Provosts of King’s Jack Sheppard and Noel Annan. Members took it in turns to read a paper on a philosophical or academic issue, which became the basis for lively debates. Jimmy forged some of his closest friendships among the Apostles, who brought him into contact with leading lights of the Bloomsbury group, such as Virginia Woolf, Duncan Grant and Dora Carrington

Simon Doggart’s cousin Sebastion Doggart –

Sebastian Doggart is the grandson of the eminent ophthalmologist and writer James Hamilton Doggart; son of the author/development economist Caroline Doggart and the international financier and philanthropist Anthony Doggart;[62] brother of the conservationist Nike Doggart;[63] nephew of the cricketer and educator, Hubert Doggart; and cousin of the headmaster, Simon Doggart.

Denied The Chance To Love: Examples Of Abuse In British Boarding Schools

By Benjamin Fry

2014

Ho

There has been a huge response in the press to the journalist Alex Renton’s courageous article about examples of abuse in british boarding schools, which you can read here: Abuse in British boarding schools – why I had to confront my demons

He was writing about his experiences at Ashdown Prep School and the appalling abuse that the children suffered there.

As he says at the end of the article:-

“I thought of those others .. who wanted to speak up. I thought of the children in council care homes, in borstals and mental institutions, who over the years were left in thrall to adults without protection. I thought of .. the great swathe of collateral damage that psychological trauma leaves. I thought of all the kids taken from their homes too early and thus denied, as the writer David Thomas once put it, the chance to love”.

I think Alex Renton’s article is timely as, despite some increasing openness, people in positions of power undoubtedly still feel they can get away with abuse, and proper deterrents are not in place. It is important that there is a strong message in our society that causing sexual harm to children will not go unpunished.

To give you a case in point, a teacher whom I knew at prep school, up to the age of 12, was prosecuted in 2001 following complaints against him by six former pupils. He was acquitted, which shocked me. You can see why in the extract below from my 2004 book, ‘What’s Wrong With You’.

You will see that I am fairly certain that there has been miscarriage of justice. I hope that Alex’s brave article will go some way to helping to correct the culture which has facilitated that.

Update:

More claims emerge of alleged abuse at Christian camp

Tue 11 Apr 2017

It has been claimed a man at the heart of a child abuse scandal in the Church of England recruited one of his victims to help him carry out beatings.

Simon Doggart

Alleged victim Andy Moorse told the BBC that barrister John Smyth QC convinced Simon Doggart to join in committing the sadomasochistic abuse at Winchester College in Hampshire during the mid-1970s.

He alleged that the boys would “bleed everywhere” from the attacks.

Mr Doggart, who has been the headteacher of Caldicott preparatory school in Buckinghamshire for the last two decades, is said to be critically ill and unable to respond to the allegations, the broadcaster said.

There is no suggestion that any pupil at Caldicott Preparatory has ever suffered harm at the hands of Mr Doggart.

Hampshire Police says it is investigating.

Survivors said abuse undertaken at Christian camps run at Winchester College – the oldest public school in the country – amounted to a cult, with victims being told the violence would purge them of their sins.

Two years after assault allegations first emerged in 1982, John Smyth – a leading barrister – moved to Zimbabwe where he founded several Christian camps at which it is claimed he abused youngsters.

The Bishop of Guildford Rt Rev Andrew Watson came forward in February 2017 to claim he survived one occasion of abuse at the hands of John Smyth.

John Smyth is still living as a free man in South Africa.

Caldicott School: Child Sexual Abusers and Timeline

Pupils at Caldicott School, Farnham Royal, Buckinghamshire suffered child sexual abuse over a number of years and a number of abusers. It is now a charity [4], as are many “public” schools.  It is not known what the status of the school was when child sexual abuse offences were being committed by its teachers and covered up by the school.

Known abusers so far were

  • Peter Roland Wright, former Caldicott pupil [23], was finally charged and convicted in 2014. Previous attempts to indict him failed in 2003 due a Judge deciding it was too great a the length of time since offences and the defendants health. A stay on that indictment meant he only faced charges from new victims who came forward. He was sentenced to 8 years. He was tried with offences from 1964-1970 [3]. Victims were mainly 11-13 years old [3]. He was at the school from 1952 -1993, the last 25 years as Headmaster. Wright, and when Headmaster covered up Marton Carsons abuse [1] See also Court Appeal Roland Peter Wright 5 August 2014 Court of Appeal[3] Peter Wright still lived at a cottage overlooking the school after he retired, before his recent vacation in prison.

  • Hugh Edward Henry admitted 13 counts [3] including two counts of incitement to gross indecency and eleven counts of indecent assault [9][12]. He is thought to have been at Caldicott between 1958-1963  and offences on one boy were from 1962-63 [12]. He committed some of his offences at his bedsit and on a school skiing trip with Peter Wright. He was also charged with offences at Gayhurst School, Gerrards Cross. Little else is known of his offending, where else he worked and any other possible offences. He killed himself by walking in front of a train before sentencing. [12]

 

  • John Addrison, another former Caldicott pupil [34], was charged in 2012 with offences at Caldicott between Jan and July 1978 and at Moor Park School, Ludlow between 1985 and 1988 and sentenced to roughly 5 years.  It is also not clear what he did straight after leaving Caldicott; when he started at Moor Park school or what he did after being dismissed from Moor Park School in 1988, although he was teaching in 2010 [2]. It is not known if he committed further offences after 1988. Also see Government UK National College for Teaching and Leadership  Mr John Addrison: Professional Conduct Panel outcome Panel decision and reasons on behalf of the Secretary of State for Education [2] pdf download, and reproduced in Appendix 1 below

 

  • Martin Carson, a science teacher, was found to be committing child sexual abuse offences at Caldicot in 1973, but it was covered up by the school and he received just a 5 year ban from teaching [6]. Carson was charged with two charges of buggery, eight charges of indecent assault and one count of possessing indecent photographs. He pleaded guilty in 2003 and was sentenced to just 2 years in prison. Details are lacking of offences, when employed at Caldicott. Carson resumed his career in 1980 at prep school in Eastbourne where he was appointed Head of Pastoral care [38] and he taught at Harrodian School, Bath, at the time of the video Chosen in 2008. It is not known if the committed further offences at these school or elsewhere [6]

 

  • David Keith Geddes, another teacher, was acquitted of offences between 1975-77 after a retrial [14][28]

 

  • George Hill Peter Wrights deputy in the 1970s killed himself which probably saved him from facing charges [33]

There is a good summary of legal outcomes on the Mandate Now website [28]The Caldicott Trials and Outcomes [28] where there is also a video interview of Tom Perry with Jon Snow.

Quote:
Caldicott Preparatory School became a charitable trust in 1968 under the Headmaster at the time Peter Wright.

Today there are around 250 boys. The present headmaster, Simon Doggart, was appointed in 1998; he came from Eton College where he taught history and was master-in-charge of cricket. He is a member of IAPS and the school’s governors include past parents, old boys and headmasters of public schools.
According to the school’s website, many pupils at Caldicott subsequently “win” places at major independent schools, such as Eton College, Harrow School, Winchester College, Marlborough College, Wellington College, Haileybury College and Radley College.

On 30 September 2008 the school was the subject of a feature documentary, Chosen, transmitted on More4 as part of the “True Stories” strand, about the sexual abuse that went on at the school during the late 1960s and early 1970s.[2] The headmaster Peter Wright was active in this, as well as a number of other teachers, targeting boys good at sports and, to a lesser extent, in the choir. In The Guardian published on the same day, a former parent alleged that Lord Justice Scott Baker former Chairman of the Board of Governors, and Simon Doggart the current headmaster, mishandled a case of alleged sexual abuse of their son by a teacher in the early 2000s.[3]
Martin Carson was dismissed for sexual abuse of a pupil in 1972, and went on to teach at the Harrodian School. He was subsequently prosecuted and found guilty of indecent assault and possessing indecent images of children in 2003.[4]link

“allegations against Bishop Bell by the Church”

Hubert Doggart pursued the issue: Chichester’s Dean & Chapter failed to use the word “alleged” when making pronouncements on Bishop Bell’s guilt. Could we not insist on their retracting from this stance?

Peter H replied the word “alleged” was used in the Diocesan statement of October 26 2015.

Mr Doggart doggardly pressed on : Could we not isolate our Dean and Chapter from the Diocese?

Peter H replied that the Diocesan lawyers appeared to him out of their depth, especially unable to respond adequately to the legal minds of the George Bell Group. However, he did not think it appropriate or feasible to attack the Dean and Chapter at this point – reiterating the need to concentrate on Bell’s reputation – and its restoration. That is what he is fighting for.

Caldicott…under the current headmaster Simon Doggart, another incident of alleged child sexual abuse was reported in the late 2000s. The headmaster and the chairman of the board of governors, Lord Justice Scott Baker, suspended the teacher (who did not return) but failed to report the incident to the police or social services, contrary to the school’s written policy on this matter.

Justice Scott Baker

When Lord Justice Scott Baker walked into the Paris Ritz hotel this week, with the jurors from the Diana, Princess of Wales, inquest, he would have experienced a sharp sense of deja vu.

It was two years after the death of the princess that Mohamed Fayed’s hotel dominated the other famous court case that Scott Baker has presided over.

The Appeal Court judge, hand-picked to finally bring the curtain down on the death of the princess, jailed Jonathan Aitken, the former Tory Cabinet minister, for 18 months for perjury. Aitken had lied on oath about who paid for his suite in the hotel on the Place Vendome.

Baker quickly adapted to his first role as a coroner which enabled him to give an opinionated summing up at the start.

In his opening remarks, which ran to 138 pages and lasted almost two days, he dedicated himself to a methodical and meticulous debunking of the conspiracy theories which have grown up around the car crash in the Alma underpass.

He is the fourth to take up the coroner’s baton in an inquest that has become mired in endless delay and remains at the centre of deep seated suspicions of an Establishment cover-up that the jury’s verdict is unlikely to change.

The Oxford-educated judge, who has more than 40 years experience, comes from a distinguished legal family. His father was a High Court judge and his brother, Michael Findlay Baker, QC, is a circuit judge.

He was called to the Bar in 1961, became a Recorder in 1976, a High Court Judge in the Family Division in 1988 when he was knighted. He transferred to the Queen’s Bench Division in 1992. In 2002, he was made a Lord Justice of Appeal.

Scotty Baker, as he is known to his contemporaries, was chosen for his latest role by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, after discussions with colleagues including the Master of the Rolls, Sir Anthony Clarke.

A keen cricketer, he served on the Cricket Council’s appeals committee for two years and he has a home adjoining a golf course in Scotland. At weekends he is often to be found relaxing with friends at Denham Golf Club, Bucks.

In the 1980s he served on the ground-breaking Warnock committee on the ethics of embryo science and, in 1997, the year that he jailed Aitken, he dismissed charges of corporate manslaughter against Great Western Trains after the Southall train crash which claimed seven lives.

In 1988, he ruled that a woman mental patient with the mind of a child could be sterilised without her consent.

In March, he struck a blow against the insidious rise of the compensation culture when he rejected a claim by a woman who broke her leg in a hole left by a maypole on a village green. ”

 Archbishop’s QC friend ‘allowed to commit abuse after evangelicals failed to report him’

It has now emerged that a number of senior figures at high-profile evangelical organisations were told of the claims but did not alert the authorities.

A barrister at the centre of a child abuse scandal committed a series of sickening assaults against young men after leading evangelical groups failed to report him to the police, it is claimed.

John Smyth QC, a friend of the Archbishop of Canterbury, is accused of carrying out sadomasochistic attacks on boys he met at Christian camps in Britain and Zimbabwe.

The assaults first came to light in 1982, when a victim attempted suicide after being summoned to a beating in the shed of Mr Smyth’s Winchester home.

But both the Iwerne Trust, the Christian group that Mr Smyth chaired, and Winchester College, the school attended by some of his alleged victims, did not report the claims to police.

The part-time judge then moved to Zimbabwe, where he founded a series of summer camps at which it is alleged he again abused young men.

In 1997 he was charged with culpable homicide after a boy was found naked in the swimming pool of one of his camps.

It has now emerged that a number of senior figures at high-profile evangelical organisations were told of the claims but did not alert the authorities.

David Fletcher, a Iwerne trustee who oversaw an investigation into the alleged assaults, said he told the Church Society, a powerful voice on the evangelical wing of the Church of England, about the claims in 1982.

Jamie Colman and his wife Sue, a vicar at the church that oversees the Alpha Course, are under investigation for using their personal charity to fund John Smyth QC

David Jackman, then a senior minister at a leading evangelical church also admitted he was told about the allegations at the same time. Mr Jackman went on to become head of the Proclamation Trust, which helps train evangelical preachers,

The Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship, the legal charity of which Mr Smyth was a member, is also named in Iwerne documents as having been informed.

Separately, the Charity Commission has announced that it has launched an investigation into  a charity established by Reverend Sue Colman, a trustee of the Holy Trinity Brompton, which oversees the Alpha Course, the evangelical movement backed by celebrities such as Bear Grylls, after she admitted sending thousands of pounds to Mr Smyth via her personal charity.

Mrs Colman’s husband Jamie, the heir to the Colman’s Mustard dynasty, is already under investigation  by the Charity Commission  after funneling hundreds of thousands of pounds to Mr Smyth over a thirty-year period, despite knowing about the abuse claims in Britain and Zimbabwe.

Mrs Colman apologised for the donations but said her husband had not told her about the claims  against Mr Smyth.

Dr Lee Gatiss, the director of the Church Society, said the group had examined its records but had “no reason to believe that Church Society was aware of any abuse allegations of the kind referred to, or indeed that Mr Smyth had any involvement with Church Society”.

Mr Jackman, who is a director of Keep Marriage Special, a group launched by the Church Society that claimed that letting same sex couples marry would lead to the legalisation of incest, said he believed he had acted correctly in not notifying police.

He said: “I assumed that the matter was being dealt with by the authorities concerned.”

Mark Barrell, executive director of the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship, said the group’s records suggested that, contrary to the Iwerne Trust documents, it had not been notified of the allegations involving Mr Smyth until 2003.

A spokesman for the Charity Commission said that as a matter of best practice the group should have made an incident report to the regulator once it was informed, but Mr Barrell refused to reveal whether the organisation had notified authorities.

He said: “His membership was terminated that year and he had no further involvement with the LCF.”

Winchester College said that following an inquiry conducted in 1982 into allegations of abuse, the then headmaster told Smyth never to enter school premises or contact pupils again. However, police were not informed.

Royal Sun Alliance, child abuse victims and the legal decision that shames Britain

The insurance company Royal and Sun Alliance Insurance Group spent £750,000 pounds  in legal fees to prevent paying out £200,000  to the victims of the abuse despite knowing that the claims were true:

The State placed the children in Bryn Alyn Community childrens homes  and paid for the children to be abused by Allen and Staff and VIP paedophiles.

Since then the State, the Courts and all the  people involved have made the children suffer further abuse and relive their  childhood abuse over and over again whilst giving them nothing but grief in return.

Colman’s Mustard heir, Jamie Colman, admits charity funded ‘child abuse’ barrister for nearly thirty years

And his wife Rev Sue Colman was an independent adoption and fostering panel member for her local authority and worked for the scandal-ridden Kids Company

Jamie Colman

Rev Sue Colman – has safeguarding role

The heir to the Colman’s Mustard dynasty has admitted funnelling hundreds of thousands of pounds to a barrister at the centre of a child abuse scandal, despite knowing he had brutally beaten teenage boys.

Image result for winchester college john smyth

Jamie Colman, who will become a baronet upon the death of his father, Sir Michael Colman, used a charitable trust to send donations of up to £12,000 a year to John Smyth QC, who is accused of abusing teenagers in Britain and Zimbabwe.

The Charity Commission yesterday launched a probe into the Zambesi Trust, which Mr Colman began chairing in 1989, after he admitted it funded Mr Smyth for nearly thirty years, despite Mr Colman knowing that the barrister had admitted beating boys and showering naked with them.

Colman, a partner at Plexus, a London law firm, is also being investigated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, over claims that he failed to act with integrity and undermined public trust in the legal profession.

Mr Smyth, who ran holiday camps attended by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the late Seventies, is being investigated by Hampshire Police over claims that he beat 22 teenagers he met at the gatherings.

He moved to Zimbabwe in 1984 after victims reported the assault claims to Church leaders, and founded Zambesi Ministries, which ran Christian camps that are also the subject of abuse allegations.

Mr Colman admitted that he had been told about the British claims in the late Eighties, and said he was informed in the early Nineties that Mr Smyth was “using corporal punishment and engaging in nudity with teenagers” at the Zimbabwe camps.

The Telegraph has seen documents showing that Mr Colman flew to Zimbabwe to meet the parents of alleged victims, in July 1993.

Minutes of the meeting show that he accepted that Mr Smyth had beaten boys with a wooden bat, showered with them, and encouraged them to swim naked.

The documents, now disputed by Mr Colman, record him saying that “the beatings and nudity were justified in the context of a weak church; Zambesi Ministries was aimed at portraying Christianity as a rugged, manly religion”.

He also told the parents that Zimbabwean authorities had “a different attitude towards beatings” to British police, and tried to persuade them not to involve lawyers, citing passages from the Bible indicating that “complaints against a Christian should be addressed within the Church”.

Mr Smyth was charged with culpable homicide in 1997 after a 16-year-old boy was found at the bottom of a swimming pool. Several boys then came forward to make abuse claims, although both cases against him collapsed.

Mr Colman admitted that when Mr Smyth cut his ties with the ministry, after leaving Zimbabwe in 2001, the charity “continued to make small grants to him and his wife Anne for their personal expenses”.

The most recent trust accounts appear to show direct funding of around £12,000 per annum from the Zambesi Trust to John Smyth, until 2001. Thereafter around £6,000 per annum up until as recently as February 5, 2017.

Mr Colman said the trustees only decided to stop funding Mr Smyth on February 5, after the allegations against him were finally made public by Channel 4 News.

He was subsequently awarded the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Cross of St Augustine.

A Charity Commission spokesman said: “We have opened a case into the Zambesi Trust, to determine how the charity applied its funds in the past, and to determine what safeguarding procedures the charity has in place to protect any vulnerable beneficiaries.”

A spokesman for the Solicitors Regulation Authority said: “We are aware and are investigating these allegations.”

On Friday night, Mr Colman told the Telegraph: “I consider I have met my obligations and duty of care both as a solicitor and as a trustee.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

 What an utterly warped train of thought!

 You’ve been sitting on that information for years!


8 February 2017
“These camps and [Smyth’s] activities had extraordinary influence among senior evangelicals in the Church of England of my generation,” Bishop Wilson told Channel 4 News. “Pretty much everybody who was anybody in the leadership of public school Anglican evangelicalism had something to do with John Smyth’s operation. And I think that raises all sorts of disturbing questions.”
Joseph Diwakar, a researcher in church history at Oxford university, said the legacy of “Bash camps” – Christian camps named after the nickname of their founder, EJH Nash – “is the narrow cohort of men at the top of the conservative evangelical Church… This narrow and intimate group of alumni [of Christian camps], and their highly-conservative theology, provide context to the silence over Smyth’s crimes.”
An organisation and its network of elites, long influential in the Church, has been shown capable of facilitating and concealing the worst types of abuse.”
Update Feb 8 2017

John Smyth faces fresh allegations of abuse in following ongoing Channel 4 News investigation

Feb 7

Tonight: Channel 4 News obtains new documents revealing disturbing evidence about the scale of John Smyth’s alleged abuse in .

Man says he was ‘ordered to self-harm’ as a teenager by British QC by John Smyth, QC at centre of claims of abuse in 1970s

8 February 2017

Now in his 50s, David (not his real name) encountered Smyth when he was a pupil at Winchester College and a contemporary of Andrew Watson, the bishop of Guildford, who this week disclosed he had been subjected to violent beatings by Smyth.

David said he was drawn into Smyth’s circle after meeting him through Winchester College’s Christian Forum. He also attended Christian holiday camps in Dorset and became a “regular visitor to [Smyth’s] house, where he offered me ‘spiritual guidance’.”
Winchester College said that following an inquiry conducted in 1982 into allegations of abuse, the then headmaster told Smyth never to enter school premises or contact pupils again. However, police were not informed.
Update: 6 Feb 2017

Lawyer accused of subjecting boys to sadomasochistic beatings at Christian summer camps in 1982 ‘was still counselling teens up until allegations re-emerged last week’

  • Justin Welby apologised on behalf of Church of England over the camp beatings 
  • John Smyth, head of Iwerne Trust, allegedly subjected boys to ‘sadomasochism’
  • Boys from some of Britain’s top public schools were left with life-long scars 
  • Neither the church or Winchester College, where some boys went, told police

The part-time judge, whose style of leadership has been likened to a ‘cult leader’ moved to Zimbabwe in 1984 after British assault allegations emerged in 1982, and founded a series of Christian camps at which alleged victims claim he again abused teenagers – at one camp a 16 year old boy drowned during a nighttime ‘skinny dip’ ordered by him.

Mr Smyth was charged with culpable homicide in 1997 in the wake of the death and several other boys came forward to claim he had beaten them and forced them to swim naked while he watched, although both cases against him collapsed.

Today a letter emerged, signed by the barrister and printed on the letterhead of his Zambesi Holidays firm, that was sent to parents of boys booked to attend a camp at the Ruzawi School, an elite boarding school in the north-east of Zimbabwe.

In it, Mr Smyth said that he wanted to create a ‘relaxed family atmosphere’ but admitted the likelihood that he would beat the boys and take showers with them.

He wrote in the note, published in today’s Telegraph: ‘I am determined that we should avoid a school atmosphere as far as possible. I am not a schoolmaster; I try instead to be something of a father figure to the camp, encouraging the younger leaders to care for their campers in the way the best of big brothers should.

‘To this end we use Christian names all round, the younger leaders sleep in the dormitories with their campers, and we all (including myself from time to time) have our showers with the boys.’

The barrister, who was described by the Archbishop of Canterbury as a ‘delightful’ man, also explained that he intended to impose a regime of corporal punishment.

He told parents: ‘We must, however, have good discipline and experience has shown that with so many high-spirited boys we need some form of sanction. I never cane the boys, but I do whack them with a table tennis bat when necessary.

‘Such are the opportunities for pranks that I sometimes have to use this fairly liberally to deter high-spirited naughtiness and to ensure obedience and reasonable standards of tidiness.

At his evangelical church in Cape Town, the couple’s priest confirmed he had been in touch with the Smyths and instructed them to stay away from its services and meetings until the allegations of ‘terrible misconduct’ against the former part-time judge are resolved.

The couple left their home last Friday as allegations of Mr Smyth’s fondness for excessive corporal punishment and penchant for naked boys emerged in interviews with his victims, who spoke to Channel 4 News.

Mr Thompson, told the hushed, packed Church-on-Main congregation in Wynberg, that help would be offered to those who had confided in Mr Smyth.

A fair number of people… have had moments of counselling and group discipleship with John,’ Mr Thompson said.

Elders were available ‘should anyone feel the need to discuss the nature of’ or content of’ their experience,’ he added.

He added: ‘If our having had John as a leader of a discipleship group or his role in any form of ministry has led to hurt or risk to anyone’ or to bringing the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ into disrepute in any way’ for this we apologise’.

Last week, one of the Smyths daughters, who did not wish to be identified, called on her father to come forward and confront allegations against him. Yesterday, her brother PJ joined the chorus for their father to present himself.

During his time at Winchester College in the late Seventies and Eighties, Mr Smyth met many teenagers, and is said to have invited those he favoured to his home for Sunday lunch

In a letter to the congregation of Covenant Life Church in Maryland’ PJ Smyth said his father ‘disciplined me in a manner consistent with the laws and cultural trends of the UK at the time’ not in a manner alleged in the recent reports’.

‘We moved to Zimbabwe when I was 13. My father told me that he felt called out of the legal profession into full-time Christian work. I attended a number of Zambesi Holidays camps and I was never aware of any abuse.

‘During the early 1990s’ when I was studying in South Africa’ I was aware that a delegation of pastors and parents insisted that my father and the board of Zambesi Holidays make adjustments to camp life’ which they did. I do clearly remember the tragic drowning of a fellow camper one year. It was devastating to his family and to all of us who knew him.

‘In my twenties’ I gradually became aware that there had been issues surrounding my father’s ministry in the UK. Nothing specific’ but I remember hearing some of my parents’ friends say things like’ ‘… of course those were difficult years for your dad’. However’ I assumed that it was something relatively minor and it never occurred to me to press my father for detail.

‘I believe that the civil authorities are given by God to help protect against wrong-doing. I am firmly committed to reporting any form of child abuse to the authorities.’

Justin Welby

John Smyth QC, who ran Christian holiday camps attended by the Rev Justin Welby in the late Seventies, told church leaders his “extraordinary aberration of judgment” was linked to his addiction to prescription medication. Hampshire Police this week launched an investigation into Mr Smyth, who left Britain when the beating allegations came to light in the early Eighties, moving to Zimbabwe, where he also faces abuse claims.

Mr Smyth issued a written statement to church leaders in which he accepted that beating British teenagers had been “entirely wrong” and blamed it on the pressures of work and an addiction to sedatives.

The barrister made the admission in 1989, a month after the former headmaster of Winchester, John Thorn, published a book in which he referred to the beating claims.

Mr Thorn wrote in The Road to Winchester, published in February 1989: “I was told the extraordinary news that the neighbouring barrister had gained such personal control over a few of the senior boys in the group, and had kept it after they left the school, that he was claiming to direct their burgeoning relationship with girls and was, with their consent, punishing them physically when they confessed to him they had sinned. 

“The World of Conservative Evangelism was reft in twain. Absurd and baseless rumours were circulated that he was an unhinged tyrant, the embodiment of Satan. He must be banished. And – quietly but efficiently – he was.

“He left the Winchester district and then the United Kingdom. He departed for Africa with his family and, by me, has not been heard of since.”

The fact that the allegations had surfaced publicly for the first time prompted Mr Smyth to issue a written statement, via his Zambezi Ministry, in March 1989.

The release, circulated to church leaders in Zimbabwe, states: “Within a few days of the matter first coming to the attention of older Christians in February 1982, John accepted that what he had been doing was entirely wrong and he has never sought to justify it since.

 In a bid to stop his admission circulating more widely, he added: “Please regard this as a confidential document, NOT for general circulation. It is intended only for the eyes of those who raise queries about the matter in the book.”

Archbishop admits Church ‘failed terribly’ over abuse revelations

The Church of England has tonight apologised unreservedly after a Channel 4 News investigation revealed that a prominent Anglican evangelical and former colleague of the Archbishop of Canterbury is alleged to have severely assaulted boys and young men for decades.

Mr. John Smyth, QC, MA, LLB Trinity Hall and Cambridge.

The alleged abuse was carried out by prominent QC and part time judge called John Smyth, who was chairman of the Iwerne Trust, a charity closely linked to the church which ran Christian holiday camps for public school students.

The Church admitted that it had “failed terribly”, after this programme learned that the Trust had discovered the alleged abuse in 1982, but failed to report it to the police.

Winchester College, where some of the young men met Smyth, was made aware of the alleged abuse, but also failed to report it to the police at the time. There is no suggestion that any abuse took place at the College or with the knowledge of its staff.

The Archbishop was a colleague of Smyth’s at the Iwerne Trust.

Smyth was never reported to cops.

He was instead allowed to move to South Africa after agreeing never to work with children again.

Neither the church or top Winchester College, were some boys went, told police 

The Archbishop and Smyth, who continued to ‘exchange cards’ even after he moved abroad.

Lambeth Palace said: ‘The Archbishop of Canterbury was a dormitory officer at Iwerne holiday camp in the late 1970s, where boys from public schools learnt to develop life as Christians. The role was to be a mentor to the boys, as was that of his now wife at a similar camp for girls.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4182226/Archbishop-Canterbury-sorry-beatings-church-camp.html#ixzz4XXOnCLF4

Two friends of the Archbishop have known of the abuse claims since they first came to light, although a spokesman said neither informed Welby of the allegations.

One, the Reverend David Fletcher, was the trustee of the Iwerne Trust who led the investigation into the incidents. Fletcher opted not to pass the claims to police.

Son of lawyer in ‘spanking’ documentary heads US ‘megachurch’ embroiled in sex scandal

The son of John Smyth — the Cape Town lawyer accused of abusing boys at Christian holiday camps for decades — has just moved from South Africa to head a US “megachurch” emerging from a child sex abuse scandal.

PJ Smyth is the new lead pastor at Covenant Life Church‚ in Gaithersburg‚ Maryland. He moved there in December after being at the helm of Johannesburg’s GodFirst church‚ which has congregations in Douglasdale‚ Parkhurst‚ Paulshoff‚ Benoni and Tembisa.

The website of Covenant Life — which has 19 pastors and around 2‚000 members — says: “We convey our warmest thanks to the people of GodFirst Church in Johannesburg‚ where PJ has served for the last 10 years‚ for their faith and generosity in sending PJ and family stateside for a new assignment.”

In December 2012‚ according to Wikipedia‚ Covenant Life withdrew from the Sovereign Grace Ministries network after former congregants — including some from Covenant Life — filed a lawsuit alleging the ministry’s leaders conspired to conceal the sexual abuse of children.

Six months later‚ Smyth’s predecessor as lead pastor‚ Joshua Harris‚ disclosed that he had been a victim of sex abuse and encouraged victims to go to the police after a Maryland judge dismissed the lawsuit due to the statute of limitations.

Harris stepped down from The Gospel Coalition council in 2014 after former Covenant Life youth group leader Nathaniel Morales was convicted on five counts of sexual abuse against three boys between 1983 and 1991.

During the trial‚ former Covenant Life pastor Grant Layman admitted under oath that he had not reported sex abuse allegations.

PJ moved to Zimbabwe from the UK in 1984‚ when he was 13. He studied at the University of Cape Town‚ and Covenant Life’s website says: “In 1997‚ (PJ and his wife Ashleigh) started River of Life Church in Harare with a few friends.

“Over a seven-year period‚ River of Life had become a family of five churches‚ and PJ and Ashleigh felt God calling them to … plant another reproducing base church‚ this time in Johannesburg‚ South Africa. They started GodFirst Church … in 2005.

“In 2014‚ PJ handed over the leadership of GodFirst Church to devote himself full time to establishing Advance‚ a family of churches committed to planting and strengthening churches‚ currently working on five continents.”

Another Covenant Life Church Member Arrested for Sexual Abuse

March 28, 2016

UPDATE – March 30, 2016

Covenant Life Church sent the following email to their members yesterday:

March 29,2016
Dear church family,

I am sorry to bring sad and disturbing news. We learned Saturday that a 66-year-old male member of the church was arrested earlier this month and charged with multiple counts of sexual abuse of a minor. We are grateful that law enforcement is involved. We are not naming the accused at this time to protect the minor.

We’ve been learning all we can so that we can communicate with you fully and accurately in the days to come. We want to reassure you that our child protection measures are robust, and we continue to work hard to ensure Covenant Life remains a place of safety for children.

So far as we know nothing related to these charges occurred at the church. However, if you have any information we encourage you to contact Montgomery County Police at 301-279-8000.

Sincerely,

Mark Mitchell

The idea that Covenant Life Church is not releasing the perpetrator’s name because they want to protect the victim’s privacy is an appalling lie. The alleged perpetrator’s arrest is a matter of public record on the MD court case website. How are church members supposed to know if their kids have been associating with an unnamed pedophile? How are CLC members realistically expected to report any information on an unnamed pedophile to the Montgomery County Police?

Covenant Life Church is a mess. They cannot even get a simple letter notifying members of a dangerous pedophile in their church right. I think it is most likely that they knew on the 16th when Caffery was arrested; but even if they didn’t find out till Saturday, why did it take 4 days to send out a statement that essentially said nothing? And we are to believe they have “robust child protection” policies?
https://thouarttheman.org/2016/03/28/another-covenant-life-church-member-arrested-sexual-abuse/

When we last heard from Covenant Life Church of Gaithersburg, Maryland they were reeling from stories in TIME and the Washingtonian which shined an unwelcome light on their sordid past of alleged sex abuse of children and the conspiracy to cover up the abuse.  They released the statement below in an attempt to tell people to “move along, there is nothing to see here.”

2016-03-22 CLC statement on abuse

Fast forward six weeks and the CLC statement, undoubtedly crafted by their attorney, rings hollow as it is revealed yet another member of their church has been arrested and charged with sexually abusing a minor!

A Maryland Senate subcommittee held a  hearing on SB69 earlier this month.  The proposed bill would extend the statute of limitations for civil cases of sexual abuse from seven to twenty years. During the hearing, Senator Jamie Raskin stated that Covenant Life Church looks like something of a “clearing house for predatory sexual activities against children.

I would agree with Senator Raskin.

One is left to wonder how many more pedophiles will be arrested before Child Protection Services and Law Enforcement intervene with the intent of protecting children.

Justin Welby worked as a dormitory officer at a camp where  John Smyth was one of the main leaders in the 70s

The Archbishop said he was first informed of the alleged abuse in late 2013 or early 2014.

He said: ‘I was told the Bishop of Ely – it fell within his diocese – had been informed by a survivor of what had happened and had written to the police so we checked that indeed the police had been contacted immediately as per the Church rules.

‘They had been, we keep an eye on it obviously, we kept in touch and found out what was going on.

‘As you know, John Smyth had moved to Zimbabwe in the early 1980s, I understand, and it was not in the police’s jurisdiction.

‘I have a vague feeling I may have had a Christmas card in the 1990s and when I was living in Paris he passed through a 

 They later exchanged ‘the occasional card’, Lambeth Palace said last night.

In a statement the Archbishop said he had been friends with Smyth during the late Seventies, when he worked at the camps, run by the Iwerne Trust.

The Archbishop said he had kept in “occasional” contact with the barrister since.

He was made aware of the allegations in 2013 when the police were involved.

A statement from the Archbishop said: “The Archbishop of Canterbury was a Dormitory Officer at Iwerne holiday camp in the late 1970s, where boys from public schools learnt to develop life as Christians.

“The role was to be a mentor to the boys, as was that of his now wife at a similar camp for girls.

Winchester College, where some of the young men met Smyth, was made aware of the alleged abuse, but also failed to report it to the police at the time.

Lymington Rushmore is part of the Titus Trust,  a non-denominational Christian charity. The Trust has been running activity holidays for young people since the 1930s (originally as part of the Scripture Union). It is responsible for four holiday groups –Lymington Rushmore Holidays serving a mixture of day and boarding schools in the South; Iwerne & Forres Holidays, for those at the larger boarding schools and associated prep schools in the South of England; Gloddaeth Holidays working with independent schools in the North of England; and LDN  Holidays for those at independent London day schools.

The Titus Trust continues to enjoy strong links with the Scripture Union and with a number of CPAS Ventures and holidays.

The Titus Trust is a registered charity (charity no. 1066751) and is only able to continue its work due to the generous gifts of its supporters.

 Tremendous Teens by John Smyth

Christian crusader in teen abuse scandal

A British lawyer who has been working for the inclusion of Christian values into South Africa’s constitutional jurisprudence has been accused of the “horrific” and “masochistic” beating of teenage boys in his care.

Currently based in Cape Town, John Smyth, a Queen’s Counsel and former acting judge in England, is alleged to have left a decades-long trail of bloodied bodies and broken spirits both in the United Kingdom and in Zimbabwe.

While in Zimbabwe Smyth ran a Christian mission, Zambesi Ministries, for 17 years. He was charged with the culpable homicide of 16-year-old Guide Nyachuru at one of the Zambesi Ministries’ summer camps held in Marondera in December 1992. Nyachuru’s naked body was found in the Ruzawi School pool — questions still hang over the circumstances surrounding his drowning. Smyth has always maintained it was a tragic accident.

Smyth was also charged with five counts of crimen injuria relating to incidents during a camp in April 1993 involving five boys from posh Zimbabwean schools.

The culpable homicide prosecution was discontinued when the then Zimbabwean Chief Justice, Anthony Gubbay, ruled the prosecutor in the case had a conflict of interest. Smyth moved to South Africa soon afterwards in 2001.

The allegations of abuse — ritualised beatings to “repent” for sins such as masturbation — surfaced this week following an investigation by the United Kingdom’s Channel 4 News, An Ungodly Crime?, which screened on Thursday February 2 in Britain.

The alleged pattern of behaviour appears contrary to Smyth’s public image in South Africa as a moral crusader and the executive director of the Justice Alliance of South Africa (Jasa). This week Jasa shut down its website.

Smyth and Jasa have been involved in Constitutional Court cases arguing against same-sex marriage, teenage sex, abortion, pornography and euthanasia. He also submitted draft legislation to the department of home affairs to limit access to pornography.

Senior evangelical Anglicans appear to have known of Smyth’s behaviour, which An Ungodly Crime? suggests they appear to have sought to cover up. In the late Seventies and early Eighties, Smyth was chairperson of the Iwerne Trust, an Anglican organisation with close ties to The Church of England. Iwerne organised Christian holiday camps for boys from Britain’s poshest public schools (called private schools in South Africa).

An internal report written by the Iwerne Trust in 1982, in which it acknowledges the “horrific” scale and severity of the alleged beatings by Smyth involving 22 young men since 1978.

The investigator interviewed 13 of the 22 alleged victims. In one of the first reported incidents a 17-year-old claimed that instead of a shoplifting incident being reported to his parents, Smyth offered him the choice of a beating to repent.

“He chose the beating, which was given with a cane in the summer house,” the report stated.

According to the report the beatings “continued with four 17-year-olds, on the bare bottom with a gym shoe (because it leaves less evidence) but was voluntarily accepted as a deterrent to masturbation. Beatings varied from a dozen to 40 strokes.”

The report acknowledged the beatings were “technically all criminal offences” but the organisation appears not to have reported these cases to the police at the time. The report suggests the practice was part of the “sanctifying of young men, and the blessings of fatherly discipline” but noted that a psychiatrist “describes it as suppressed masochistic sexual activity”.

From 1979 the beatings are alleged to have escalated in frequency, severity and the number of teenagers involved. About half of the victims attended Winchester College, England’s oldest public school, where Smyth appeared to have access to students.

While there was no overt sexual activity, the report said: “There was a very frequent association with sexual sins of a comparatively minor kind (masturbation and impure thoughts) and too many sexual overtones”.

The teenagers said the beatings were followed by “embraces”, with the survivor laying on the bed while it is claimed that Smyth “would kneel and pray, linking arms with him and kissing him on the shoulder and back”.

Smyth was not charged, and, instead, left for Zimbabwe in 1984.

There, he continued to source boys from top-end schools, like Bulawayo’s Christian Brothers College and Prince Edward School in Harare, for camps where the psychological manipulation and abuse allegedly continued.

Two friends of Archbishop Welby investigated allegations about John Smythfruston

Archbishop of Canterbury’s ‘delightful’ friend accused of killing teenager in Zimbabwe

A former friend of the Archbishop of Canterbury who left Britain amidst child abuse claims was later charged with killing a teenage boy in Zimbabwe.

Hampshire Police yesterday launched an investigation into claims that John Smyth QC, described by the Most Rev Justin Welby as a “charming and delightful” man, forced young men to endure savage sado-masochistic beatings after grooming them at Christian holiday camps in the late Seventies.

Channel 4 News will tonight report that Mr Smyth, who left Britain after the abuse claims emerged, went on to face charges of killing a 16-year-old boy who was found dead in a swimming pool at a Zimbabwean holiday camp.

The barrister was also accused of swimming naked with Zimbabwean teenagers, showering with them in the nude, and encouraging them to talk about masturbation.

In 1997 he was arrested over claims that he had killed Guide Nyachuru, a 16-year-old boy whose body was discovered at the bottom of the camp’s swimming pool in December 1992. The case of culpable homicide was subsequently dismissed.

Edith Nyachuru, whose brother died at one of Mr Smyth’s camps, say he would still be alive had the barrister faced justice in the UK

Court documents from the time state: “The particular allegations are that [Mr Smyth] made the complainants walk naked to the swimming pool at night; that he took showers with them in the nude; that he talked to them about masturbation and told them to be proud of their ‘dicks’; as Jesus Christ had one; and that he assaulted them on their ‘rear bare buttocks’ with a table tennis bat.”

The case against Mr Smyth collapsed in 1998, after he successfully persuaded Zimbabwe’s Supreme Court that prosecutors had overstated the claims and failed to follow proper procedures.

A lawyer involved in the case told The Telegraph he had been “shocked” after the barrister privately admitted showering with the boys, and said he had warned Mr Smyth to stop.

Channel 4 News has tracked down boys who attended the camps, who insist that the allegations are true.

 

A 1982 report into the claims, commissioned by the Iwerne Trust, was carried out by Mark Ruston, the vicar of the Round Church in Cambridge, with whom the Archbishop lodged during the late Seventies, in his final year at university.

The Archbishop has said his friendship with the Reverend Ruston was “extraordinary privilege” and he was “inspired” by him.

A second friend of the Archbishop, the Reverend David Fletcher, was the trustee of the Iwerne Trust who led the investigation into the incidents.


A report by the Iwerne Trust, the charity that ran the Christian camps at which Mr Smyth met many of the victims, documents how he persuaded one of the boys to assist with the attacks.

Mr Ruston wrote that while some of the victims “seem amazingly resilient … the rehabilitation of S … is a cause of concern”.

Mr Ruston’s report says the young men were “conned” by the barrister into taking part in the naked beatings.

The report, written by Canon Mark Ruston, a close friend of the  Rev Justin Welby, said that the teenage boy, identified only as “S”, was “brought into sharing the ‘ministry’ in the summer of 1980”.

He wrote in the 1982 report: “There was considerable persuasion for anyone who held back. It had almost become a cult, with a powerful group dynamic.

“S, wanting to ‘be the best for God’, beat as hard as he could. “Immediately after the beating, the man lay on the bed, while [Mr Smyth] and/or S would kneel and pray, linking arms with him and kissing him on the shoulder and back.

John and Anne were married in 1968. They have 4 grown up children and 7 grandchildren.

John was educated in the UK and Canada and gained MA and LLB degrees at the University of Cambridge.

He was called to the Bar in 1965 and practiced as a Barrister (Advocate) for 19 years. In 1978 he was appointed a part-time judge, and in 1979 Queen’s Counsel.

One of Mr Smyth’s daughters, who asked not to be named said

that teenage boys were “often” at their family home for barbecues and pool parties and she never saw any abuse.

The alleged assaults came to light in the early 1980s after one of the victims, a 21-year-old student at Cambridge University, reportedly attempted to kill himself after he was told to submit to another beating.

A report by the charity, the Irwerne Trust, in 1982 called the practice “horrific” but the claims were not reported to police until 2013.

A vicar, Mark Ruston, carried out the report for the charity, which has now been seen by Channel 4 News and the Daily Telegraph.

It reported that after identifying the boys, mostly from public school Winchester College, Mr Smyth took them to his home in Hampshire and carried out lashings with a garden cane in his shed.

The Church of England has told Scotland Yard that William Whitelaw, the former home secretary, and Enoch Powell were accused of being members of a political satanic abuse ring.

The allegations of the politicians’ involvement in child abuse emerged during counselling by a vicar of a youth in the 1980s. Leo Abse, a long-serving Labour MP, was also named.

Although there was no evidence to support the claims, the church authorities felt compelled to send the information to Scotland Yard’s investigation into alleged establishment involvement in child abuse.

Public school defends role in alleged cover up of abuse at Christian camps

Winchester College knew in 1982 about allegations of abuse at the camps but says it didn’t go to the police

One of Britain’s leading public schools has been forced to defend its role in an alleged cover up of serious physical abuse at Christian summer camps attended by its pupils in the 1970s and 1980s.

Winchester College knew in 1982 about allegations of sadomasochistic abuse at the hands of John Smyth, a British QC who ran a series of Christian summer camps known as “bash camps”.

Instead, it said: “The then headmaster met John Smyth and required him to undertake never again to enter the college or contact its pupils.”

Cambridgeshire police said on Thursday they could find no record of the report from the diocese of Ely. A spokesman said any allegations would have been passed to Hampshire police to investigate.

John Smyth was appointed a part time judge in 1978

In 1984 John and Anne moved with their family to Zimbabwe to do mission work. After two years with African Enterprise they founded Zambesi Ministries which they directed for the next 15 years until John reached 60.

According to Bar Council records, Smyth continued to be a part-time recorder and member of the bar until he moved to Zimbabwe two years later, where in 1986 he set up his own teenage camp for young boys, Zambesi Ministries. Between 1986 and 2002, hundreds of boys passed through the camps.

Smyth is now based in Cape Town, South Africa, where he runs the Justice Alliance, whose website has recently been taken down. In 2005 he was one of an outspoken group who opposed gay marriage equality in South Africa.

Smyth has nine grandchildren and lists his hobbies as skiing, mountain walking and squash.

He did not respond to requests for a comment on Thursday.

Welby said he had only had fleeting contact with Smyth since. “I have a vague feeling I may have had a Christmas card in the 1990s and when I was living in Paris he passed through and I shook hands with him. That was the limit.”

In 1997, they started River of Life Church in Harare with a few friends

Q: Where has PJ lived?
A: In the UK until age 13 (1971-1984); in Zimbabwe until age 33 (1984-2004); then in South Africa (2004-2016) until age 45. PJ and family relocated to Maryland in December 2016.

Q: What is his citizenship?
A: PJ is a UK citizen, who enjoyed the status of permanent residence in Zimbabwe, and then in South Africa. Ashleigh is a South African citizen.

Q: Describe PJ’s educational background.
A: PJ attained ‘O’ Levels (aged 16 years) and ‘A’ Levels (aged 18 years), and university degrees from Cape Town University and the University of South Africa in Biblical Studies and Church History.

Q: Describe PJ’s spiritual background.
A: PJ came to faith as a young boy, although he feels he properly owned his faith at age 15. Because he was at boarding schools from ages 8 to 18, PJ’s first genuine experience of local church life came during college. He attended His People Church in Cape Town throughout his university years, and during that time felt God speak to him about one day leading a church.

PJ reflects on three primary shaping spiritual influences. First, his parents. John and Anne Smyth (who live in Cape Town), led PJ to faith and instilled in him a love for God’s Word and for leadership. Second, His People Church in Cape Town. His People taught PJ about the importance of faith, courage and excellence in ministry. Third, Newfrontiers. Terry Virgo, and other Newfrontiers men and women, taught PJ about the importance of the local church, the Holy Spirit and the grace of God.

Q: What are the churches PJ has led in Africa?
A: River of Life Church in Harare, Zimbabwe. GodFirst Church in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Police investigate alleged ‘brutal lashings’ by Christian leader

Police have today launched an investigation into claims that teenage boys from Britain’s leading public schools were violently beaten, in what’s been described as a “sadomasochistic cult” run by a lawyer with links to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Operation Cubic, run by Hampshire Police, will examine allegations uncovered by Channel 4 News that John Smyth QC stripped and brutally lashed 22 young men he had groomed at the Christian youth camps he ran.

The QC, who acted for public morals campaigner Mary Whitehouse in her high profile anti-gay censorship trials, is alleged to have carried out the intense beatings in a specially sound-proofed garden shed at his Winchester home after meeting many of his “disciples” while giving talks at nearby Winchester College.

From 1979 the beatings are alleged to have escalated in frequency, severity and the number of teenagers involved. About half of the victims attended Winchester College, England’s oldest public school, where Smyth appeared to have access to students.

Smyth encouraged the pupils to attend the Iwerne Trust camps where he cultivated small groups of followers in their late teens. They were invited to his home for Sunday lunch.

The report’s author, Mark Ruston, a vicar and also a friend of Archbishop Welby, said the punishments began with “training beatings” that were “semi-naked” which “gave way to complete nakedness to ‘increase humility’.

The teenage boys were reportedly told: “You want to be the best, don’t you? Let me be a helper to you”.

The alleged violence intensified. One boy said, “I could feel the blood spattering on my legs”, another said, “I fainted sometime after a severe beating”. One simply stated: “I was bleeding for three-and-a-half weeks”.


Dear Archbishop of Canterbury: Can you look yourself in the mirror and honestly say you did everything you could to expose John Smyth?

The open letter calls on the Archbishop to reconsider his statement that he first heard of abuse in 2013

The open letter calls on the Archbishop to reconsider his statement that he first heard of abuse in 2013

Dear Archbishop,

I am sure that we will meet one day. You have expressed your deep regret about how the Church has treated myself and my fellow victims since John Smyth’s abuse was uncovered. And besides, we have a lot in common. We are pretty much the same age. You went to Eton, I went to Winchester College. We have shared a university education.

We were both at the Iwerne Trust Christian camps at the same time, although I was there as a boy, you were there as an Iwerne Officer. Crucially, however, we both personally knew John Smyth, the subject of Channel 4’s news reports last Thursday & Friday. He was my abuser. The man who beat me in the horrific detail that was exposed in the television reports (and that I have written about in my account for Monday’s Daily Telegraph, the newspaper that, in my opinion, bravely ran this story before all others).

You have described John Smyth as ‘charming’ and ‘delightful’.Anonymous victim

You have described John Smyth as ‘charming’ and ‘delightful’. Some people have found these words a strange description for someone who is alleged to have performed such monstrous acts, but I completely agree with you. I first met John Smyth when I was 14 years old. He was charming and delightful. That was why I latched on to him.

Reporter tracks down man at centre of abuse allegations Watch | Reporter tracks down man at centre of abuse allegations

01:21

I was at Winchester College at the time. I had been educated away from home since the age of 7. With respect to all the adults that I met during those years of boarding school, John Smyth was probably the first man who seemed genuinely interested in me. Only a ‘charming’ and ‘delightful’ man could have attracted so many young, impressionable men into his cult.

I was beaten by John on a 4-6 weekly basis from the age of 16 to 21. I was ‘in’ at the beginning and ‘out’ at the very end. I actually brought about the end of the beatings in the UK when I tried to commit suicide because I couldn’t face the ‘special’ beating that he had planned for my 21st birthday. By then, for me, it had been over four years and thousands and thousands of lashes. My body couldn’t take it anymore. My mind was frozen in trauma. I was ready to die. Death would have been a relief.

That was in 1982. In 2016, a friend and fellow victim told me that Channel 4 were conducting an investigation into John Smyth – an investigation into the alleged physical abuse that John Smyth handed out in the UK and subsequently continued in Zimbabwe. The first words that my friend said were ‘I hope you don’t mind me telling you…’ but we soon reflected that in fact neither of us minded that complete strangers were uncovering our secret past.

Archbishop of Canterbury: I saw no signs of abuse Watch | Archbishop of Canterbury: I saw no signs of abuse

03:04

We were in fact overjoyed, elated. Why? Well over the intervening years, all of those who had been involved in the beatings had gradually drifted away from each other and lost touch. We had all been great friends at school, often best friends at university and Iwerne Trust Christian camps but, as we had grown older and appreciated the acts of John Smyth for what they were, a terrible catalogue of abuse, we simply found it easier not to meet up, not to socialise, because every time that we saw each other it reminded us of the horrors of the past and, equally troubling, the fact that none of us or our families had ever reported John Smyth to the police, none of us had ever broken the bond of secrecy that we had sworn to him and each other while the abuse was occurring.

And so, in our adult years we had become gradually isolated, intentionally separated from each other. Why am I saying ‘we’ and not just reflecting my own experience? Because, once I learned that Channel 4 were investigating John Smyth. I found that instead of wishing to remain isolated, I positively wanted to search out all my old friends, my fellow victims. I wanted to reconnect and spread the news that Channel 4 and the Daily Telegraph (not any of the institutions that we had imagined might one day get in touch) wanted to listen to our story, to understand our experiences with John Smyth, to build a picture of everything that had occurred to us from 1978 to 1982.

We kept saying ‘I hope you’re okay’Anonymous victim

The world is quite different now. I found most of my old friends and fellow victims within a few minutes of opening  my laptop: they were on Facebook, LinkedIn, all the social media sites. We were pretty much all there. And we were all delighted to make contact. In the four months that I was involved in assisting various reporters, I have either spoken to or messaged about half of John Smyth’s alleged 22 UK victims. I have even spoken to one of the people who described to me the very similar way that John Smyth had beaten him in Zimbabwe.

In those conversations, I soon became aware of an interesting thing. None of us were really bothered to talk about John Smyth. We knew everything that he had done to each of us. How appalling it had been. How cruelly and malevolently he had used some individuals in particular. That went without saying. We also weren’t particularly curious about what jobs we were doing, whether we had married, had children etc. That didn’t seem important. We were most concerned about each other’s well-being, we kept saying ‘I hope you’re okay.’ Even as we talked or messaged, we continually checked that the other person was comfortable with describing how they felt.

John Smyth is tracked down by Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News Credit: Channel 4 News

And we discovered that although we had experienced a wide range of mental turmoil, depression and trauma in the intervening years, we all universally had an impression that the media investigation was a GOOD THING – that although it was difficult, shameful to talk to the Channel 4 team and reporter Peter Robertson on behalf of the Daily Telegraph, it  was actually a cathartic experience. Because someone was asking us sympathetically what had happened, how we felt. And we all felt a bit better for it.

Because, Archbishop, that is one of the important points that I would like to convey in this letter, from all the victims that I have been in touch with, no matter how different our outcomes. The media asked us, we told, they listened and they reported. Prior to that, none of us had been contacted since 1983 by any of the four institutions that had known our story or had come to learn of it. Actually, that’s not quite true. One of us, one of the victims had contacted the church himself in 2012, reported his experiences, which in turn prompted the police ‘investigation’ that you told us about in your comments to the press.

Somehow, all the people who were involved at any time in both the charities never mentioned anything about John Smyth’s horrific practice to each other.Anonymous victim

But that was him bravely contacting the church , not the church or any institution contacting him. And we know that the police investigation collapsed very quickly because they have said that they were not provided with enough evidence to make a case.

So, let’s consider these four institutions, the ones who at some point or other knew about John Smyth’s abuse before the Telegraph’s first story last Thursday morning:

The Iwerne Trust – were aware of the whole story in 1982. I can say that unequivocally because they commissioned a report by your fellow Iwerne Minster Officer and great friend the Reverend Mark Ruston in the Spring of 1982. Channel 4 showed me the report. It has the initials of the Iwerne Trustees at its head, many of whom are still alive, some holding very influential positions in the Church of England.

It’s an incredible account. It contains, in my opinion, the whole story in a few pages. Every detail is correct to my mind: the number of victims, the scale of the abuse, the criminal act that was broken, the trauma that the victims were likely to suffer. Amazing.  A couple of months after I tried to commit suicide in 1982, everything that anyone would need to know Mark Ruston has written down.

Identities of all the victims are protected by initialisation but I’ve subsequently found out that in order to compile the report enormous efforts were made to contact my friends and fellow victims. They had nearly all been interviewed by Mark Ruston. That’s why it’s so accurate. It’s a succinct distillation of everything the victims knew and some remarkable interpretation by Mark Ruston himself.  At the time, I was in hospital. He didn’t contact me. But even though I never met him I still to this day consider it to be completely accurate.

The Titus Trust – set up in 1997 and who took over the Iwerne Trust fundraising and have run very similar Christian camps for young teenagers up to the present day. Time and space prevents me from naming the personnel who have been involved in both Titus and the Iwerne Trust. Titus have told the media (not the victims) that they were aware, by their own admission, in 2014 of John Smyth’s activities. They’ve said that this was the first they’d ever heard of the abuse.

Apparently, Mark Ruston’s report that the Iwerne Trust commissioned in 1982 somehow never got handed over in the paperwork exchange between Iwerne and Titus. Somehow, all the people who were involved at any time in both the charities never mentioned anything about John Smyth’s horrific practice to each other. We do know that Titus asked Andrew Graystone, a PR advisor to Christian organisations, to advise them about how to deal with the knowledge that they had suddenly ‘discovered’.

Richard Gittins, another of the victims, also endorses the letter Credit: Channel 4 News

Mr Graystone recommended to the Titus Trust that they should make a full, proper independent investigation, inform the police and contact any institution or individual that might have known anything about John Smyth in order that the Titus Trust would be able to reveal the whole story. And, as Mr Graystone advised, that this was the specific, unequivocal type of action that would be most helpful to the victims of the abuse.

Titus didn’t hold that independent investigation. Instead, they relieved Mr Graystone of his advisory position and got in touch with their lawyers. They did notify the police. The police never contacted myself or any of the victims that I have spoken to. It appears that, outside of the one victim who had reported John Smyth, there was no corroboration from anyone or any institution that persuaded the police that there was enough evidence for the investigation to continue. The victim who reported was told as much. Titus offered him no direct support, admitted no responsibility.

Two private individuals (one of whom Channel 4 has identified as David Fletcher of the Iwerne Trust) paid anonymously for 10 therapy sessions. To put that useful counselling into perspective, I have been lucky enough to have received approximately 400 hours of therapy. I am still receiving therapy at the Maudsley Hospital in London and the therapy I’m receiving now is fantastic, really helpful. But it took me 10 years to find a therapist who could even identify the exact nature of my trauma. 10 years for me. Only 10 sessions offered to the one victim who reported. And none of those sessions paid for by the Titus Trust.

Winchester College – informed of the abuse in 1982 by the Iwerne Trust. I say the College, because it was actually the headmaster of the College, John Thorn, who  was informed by David Fletcher on behalf of the Iwerne Trust. I know that the Headmaster confronted John Smyth and drew up an undertaking for Smyth to sign, to prevent him from ministering to young children again. One of my parents saw that undertaking. Other victims’ parents too. But they never saw that document signed by John Smyth. And I know crucially that the promise at the bottom of the document that the Headmaster, John Thorn, made as his own personal ‘undertaking’ – a promise that he would distribute to all future headmasters was not kept. I know this for certain. I’ll tell you how I know, when we meet.

The Church – it’s really over to you on this one. I’m sure that you’ll tell me all the details from your end and 2012 onwards when we meet. So that can wait. Wow! That was a long letter. But then it has been over forty years since I first met John Smyth. I hope that some of what I’ve written has given you an indication of how difficult the silence of those last forty years have been.

You have to ask yourself. ‘Can I look myself in the mirror and honestly say that I did everything I could to report to the correct authority all the things that I knew?’Anonymous victim

The final thing that I would like to say is that, from my perspective, it’s not about institutions and organisations; all of those four institutions that I’ve listed include good people doing important, valuable work. So, for me, it’s all about specific individuals. It’s about John Smyth. Myself. The other victims. And all those individuals who have known about this story during those 40 years – and said nothing.

My therapist likes to keep thing simple, which is useful for me. She tells me that there is a triangle in abuse: the ‘abuser’, the ‘victims’ and the ‘observers’ (observers are people who knew but never reported appropriately). I personally find it quite easy to think about John Smyth, the abuser. The victims too. But considering the observers is much, much more difficult. Technically speaking, as a victim, I am ‘excused’ from being an observer (no matter how much I feel like one) but the observers in the John Smyth case include my closest family, everyone who has supported me throughout the years.

Mark Stibbe is one of the victims endorsing the letter Credit: Channel 4 News

They also include all the individuals in all the institutions who also know the story but did not report appropriately. Mark Ruston, your friend, in 1982, when he wrote his report in 1982 became an observer because he wrote that he believed that a criminal act had been committed and he was one of the many people, almost 35 years ago, who failed to report to the police. A decision that had terrible consequences. But a particularly well-informed one.

You, archbishop are also an observer. How and when you became one I know that you will want to tell me. And here’s the difficulty about being an observer. You have to ask yourself. “I knew about John Smyth. I become aware about some of the things that this abuser did, I have ‘observed’ them. Can I look myself in the mirror and honestly say that I did everything I could to report to the correct authority all the things that I knew? Did I give the people who might bring the abuser to justice every scrap of information that they might need? And, if I didn’t, then thinking very carefully about this – whose side have I been on, all this time? The side of the victims. Or the side of the abuser?”

It’s a very troubling position to find yourself in. I totally understand this and that was why, when Cathy Newman interviewed me after the showing of Channel 4’s second news report, I said on camera that I wanted to give you some time to reconsider the statements that you’ve made. I’d like to believe that you will find somewhere where you can be alone, without the advice of anyone else other than your own conscience and God. And when you have decided that you would like to talk, I’m now actually thinking that it’s not really important that we meet. In fact, there’s no reason for us to meet at all. Better not to. Because I know that everything that you tell me, you would happily say to the whole world.

Best wishes, and as we victims of John Smyth are always saying to each other – ‘I hope you’re okay’.

“W “

PS – In the account that I gave in Monday’s edition of The Daily Telegraph, I said that it was my final contribution and that I was returning to my family and normal life. And I can appreciate that Telegraph readers seeing this letter today might think that I have lied. The truth is that when I contributed to the piece on Monday, I thought that it was the end of what I wanted to say. It’s just that what I’ve seen and heard from you since on the John Smyth matter (i.e. nothing) has impelled me to write. However, just to be clear, I apologise for lying. I suppose this is a salutary reminder to us all of how a person can say things sincerely at one time and yet still be telling a lie.

Bishop Welby’s response, rather the lack of, to another survivor of abuse by a priest:

Paul Butler, the bishop of Durham, who leads the C of E’s safeguarding work, privately apologised to Joe for the church’s response to his disclosures. He said he had no doubt that Joe had been abused by Garth Moore, and there were likely to be other survivors who have not yet come forward. He ended his handwritten letter, seen by the Guardian, with: “I am … deeply sorry for the hurt I have caused you.”

But there has been no apology from Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, to whom Joe reports writing 18 letters after the church began examining his case. He had one reply, from a correspondence secretary, assuring him that “the archbishop would hold him in his prayers”.

Covenant Life Church Sure Knows How To Pick’em

February 3, 2017

What did CLC pastor PJ Smyth know and when did he know it?

Breaking: News 4 has aired their first two longer investigative stories on the abuse carried out by John Smyth. You can view the first story here. You can view the second story here.

Breaking: PJ Smyth has just released a video which can be viewed immediately below. PJ Smyth’s statement is not good news for Covenant Life Church.  It is my opinion that he comes across as a deceptive man with something to hide. CLC has a storied history of former senior pastors who have been deceptive with church members, unfortunately, it looks like they can add another one to the list.

For starters, PJ refers to his father’s abuse as “excessive discipline.” PJ talked only of his father’s alleged abuse while living in the UK decades ago.

Long, long ago and far, far away.

It all occurred when PJ was a young boy.  He only heard vague rumors of his father’s behavior.  End of story.  Nothing to see here, now move along.

Nice try PJ.

What about those years in between the time you and dear old dad lived in the UK and SA?  I believe your dad packed up and took the family to Zimbabwe in 1984, where he then worked for 17 years. By my calculations that would mean your dad left Zimbabwe for SA in 2001. You would have been 30 years-old!  While in Zimbabwe your dad was charged with the culpable homicide of 16-year-old Guide Nyachuru at one of the Zambesi Ministries’ summer camps held in Marondera in December 1992. (Link)  He managed to dodge those charges and fled to SA. (Link)  Any recollections of those years PJ?  You’re a clever man, surely you don’t expect us to believe that when you were 21 years old you had no knowledge of the charges of homicide against your father, do you?

PJ has some explaining to do.  My bet is the corrupt leaders at CLC who rallied around CJ Mahaney and Joshua Harris to cover up the sexual abuse of children happening in their church will continue their corrupt ways and attempt to provide cover for PJ Smyth.  It is time for the good members of CLC to rise up and demand the truth from their leaders, and then demand the resignation of corrupt leaders.

Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, MD sure knows how to pick a winner. CLC, formerly the flagship church of the Sovereign Grace denomination, has been embroiled in a sexual abuse scandal that some say was the largest to hit the Evangelical Church in America. Former senior pastors C.J. Mahaney and Joshua Harris, along with assistant pastor (and brother-in-law of C.J. Mahaney) Grant Layman resigned from the church. Youth leader, Nate Morales was convicted of sexually abusing boys and sentenced to 40 years in prison. Hundreds of disenchanted church members quit.

Covenant Life Church, seeking a fresh beginning, left the Sovereign Grace denomination and began a world-wide search for a new pastor.  The man CLC leaders (the same leaders complicit in the coverup of abuse) selected to lead them out of the morass of sexual abuse and coverup and restore them to a position of respectability was PJ Smyth. While a relative unknown in the USA, PJ was a superstar in South Africa, much like CJ used to be in the USA.  Convinced they had found their next Christian celebrity, CLC leaders had an easy time of convincing the Kool-Aid swilling members who had remained loyal to the church that PJ was their man. The members reportedly voted overwhelmingly ( 97% in favor) of hiring PJ. One year later, in January of 2017, PJ and his family arrived in the USA.

https://player.vimeo.com/video/199353011

 

All appeared well in CLC-land. PJ was in charge and ready to make everyone forget CJ and lead CLC to new heights of fame and fortune. Who could have known that within one month of PJ’s arrival CLC leaders would once again be indirectly rocked by more charges of abuse?

While one cannot place the blame for the sins of the father on the son, it would be reasonable to believe that PJ Smyth had to have knowledge of his father’s sinister life.  The Archbishop of Canterbury became aware of allegations in 2013. When did PJ Smyth become aware that his father was beating young men?  Did PJ report any of these brutal beatings to police?  Was PJ Smyth ever beaten by his father? Assuming PJ Smyth was aware of what his father was engaged in, did he advise CLC leaders of the potential fall-out from his father’s evil deeds?

It would appear CLC leaders did not exercise due diligence prior to hiring PJ Smith. CLC leaders have repeatedly demonstrated that they are sorely lacking any discernment. In my opinion, these leaders need to resign. One also wonders if church members will divest themselves of the notion that only a celebrity can lead their church? The whole culture at CLC seems, to this outsider, to be sick. Perhaps the healthiest thing CLC could do would be to close shop.

It would also be interesting to know whether PJ Smyth was truthful with US Immigration officials in his visa interview.

Below is a video in which Mark Mitchell recounts the thorough vetting procedure they put PJ Smyth through prior to offering him the job of senior pastor. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it sounds to me as if the CLC pastors had determined the job was PJ’s prior to the Search Committee even beginning their work!

Church Causes Stir Round Johannesburg

PJ cancer

Church Causes Stir Round Johannesburg

PJ cancer

This blog was updated with additional content on 20 May 2011

The large billboards being displayed around Johannesburg with the question: “Why do bad things happen?” with a picture of God First Pastor PJ Smyth, who recently had cancer, are yet another example of the God First Church causing quite a stir in Johannesburg.

It’s causing a stir for a number of reasons: the message on the billboard, the way in which it’s presented and the fact that a church is using such mediums to engage with the masses.

Before I carry on let me clearly state upfront the intentions and content of this blog: to examine God First’s cultural relevance and use of media and how this differs from the usual impressions people have of church and the way a church communicates.

The Media

So if you haven’t seen the billboard (the one I saw is on Witkoppen road in Fourways, Johannesburg) it looks like this.

It’s not the first time God First has used some billboards. They first drew attention with their Sex and the City billboards which I’ll get onto later.

The billboard is designed to be provocative. The underlying message is that if God First believes in a God that is good, then why did its leader get cancer? And why did he have to have chemotherapy to beat it?
The History

In the broader scheme of church history in Johannesburg, God First is a baby. Started some six years ago by PJ Smyth, his wife and 20 odd other people, the church first began meeting in Bryanston in 2005.

PJ, a Zimbabwean High School Teacher, planted their first church in Harare in 1997 and then felt the pull to Johannesburg. So he called up 20 of his friends to start a church with him.

The growth has been dramatic in church expansion terms when it comes to Johannesburg. The church moved into Ferndale High School and then expanded further to now meet in nine other sites across Gauteng.

Location is also key for the church. Two of the most interesting sites are Montecasino, where they first met in the Pieter Torien Theatre and now meet at Parker’s Comedy Club and Jive along with Taboo Night Club in Sandton.

The church also meets in various schools around Gauteng and has sites at the University of Johannesburg and Wits University as well as Tembisa, targeting both the up and coming youth and people of different LSM groups.

God First is not concerned about touching the hot topics. As mentioned earlier their Sex and the City billboards also caused surprise and outrage in some circles round the city, with topics like “I kissed a girl and I liked it”, while other series’ have had topics like “The one about having a couple of beers, sneaking around in the dark, and not having sex,” and “A Pornified World”

Another example of their desire to be relevant is their “What Would God Say to” series, where they picked out some interesting celebrities like Oprah, Bono and Julius Malema, which featured in preaches, along with live interviews with Darren “Whackhead” Simpson from 94.7, Michael Mol and none other than President Jacob Zuma. You can see some pictures of that here.

Zuma’s been known to grace the doors of churches before, but Whackhead is a surprise. And he was clearly surprised to be invited to speak at a church, commenting that the whole visit to God First surprised him.

…PJ says, acknowledging that some are suspicious of the church’s motives. 

A husband to Ashleigh and father of three strapping boys, PJ was recently diagnosed with cancer and had to take six months off for chemotherapy. His cancer has gone into remission, which the family was obviously thrilled about in their TV interview on Hello Doctor on SABC 3.

GodFirst and Who is PJ Smyth?

of GodFirst PJ says, “Modern evangelical churches have an appalling reputation. High-profile church leaders are in scandals with money, getting divorced. The reputation is that our kind of church is dubious at best. I completely appreciate that

Speaking of billboard campaigns in 2009 GodFirst ran a “Sex in the City” sermon series which caused controversy and the billboard campaign was axed by the Advertising Standards Authority.  The slogan for this series was “Jozi loves sex. God loves sex. Let’s talk.” PJ also believes that there is a crisis of masculinity  (paging John Piper, paging John Piper…) When he talked about that crisis of masculinity PJ said the following, “Nine out of 10 sex offenders are men, eight out of 10 prisoners are men, for every one woman who commits suicide, four men do. There’s a lot of work to be done on men and there’s loads in it for women.”

Toby Austin Richard William Low, 1st Baron Lord Aldington

...the governing body of Winchester in 1982 (the warden and fellows) was led by Lord Aldington who, of course, was famously accused (fairly or unfairly) by Count Nikolai Tolstoy-Miloslavsky of having sanctioned and covered up the deportation of Cossack POWs held by the Germans to the Soviets, who then executed them.

I suppose that, when faced with a problem of the type presented by Smyth, the first instinct of Aldington (deputy chairman of the Tory party during the Vassall and Profumo affairs) and his urbane headmaster, John Thorn, would be to clean things up, make sure everyone did not start blabbing, close ranks and move on.

 


…Any enquiry must focus on the response of the Iwerne Trust in 1982-83. John Smyth was its chairman, and evidently used his position to groom a group of Winchester boys whom he physically abused at his home. Although none of the abuse took place at Iwerne camps, his central role in the Trust and at the camps, puts the spotlight on the leadership of the Trust and especially the then Trustees.

The Trustees knew very well the extent of John Smyth’s behaviour and its profound impact on his victims, thanks to Canon Mark Ruston’s report, parts of which have appeared on Channel 4 and in the Daily Telegraph. I am not clear whether Mark Ruston was himself a Trustee at this point, or merely acting on their behalf. Given his graphic descriptions of the abuse and the trenchancy of his commentary (eg the ‘cult’ around Smyth), it is surprising that he did not insist the matter be reported to the police; but he may have been constrained by the collective view of the Trustees. One wonders what minutes or correspondence survive from this period: it will important for any enquiry to get statements from the surviving Trustees and those Iwerne leaders ‘in the know’.

Also there are questions about what the Trustees knew of Smyth’s subsequent activities in Zimbabwe, after they had banished him from this country, and whether they could have done anything to prevent the catalogue of further abuse. Smyth seems have been keen to stay in touch with his erstwhile colleagues in Iwerne circles.


….”Justin Welby had no knowledge of what is alleged to have happened over 40 years ago at VPS camp”

Yes he did: he was told in 2013. He says that quite clearly in his statement.

The much deeper question is why, when the matter was raised in 2013, was nothing done. And why, when the matter was raised at some earlier point, or perhaps when rumours circulated (it doesn’t sound like it was terribly secret) was the perpetrator, to use a phrase of the racing world, “warned off” rather than prosecuted? Post 1994, ie post R v Brown, the defence of consent would not have availed him. Post Peter Ball, this is even more worrying.

LORD ALDINGTON – DEAD, BUT NO R.I.P.

By Srdja Trifkovic http://www.rockfordinstitute.org/NewsST121900.htm 12-19-00 (Dr. Rimland’s comments are ‘Zundelsite’).

Trifkovic: Lord Aldington, 86, a former British trade minister and Conservative Party vice chairman who filed one of Britain’s most famous libel cases against a man who labeled him a war criminal, died of cancer Dec. 8 at his home in Kent, southern England. In 1989, Lord Aldington was awarded $2.2 million in damages after winning a libel suit against historian Count Nikolai Tolstoy, a distant relative of Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy, who had written a pamphlet accusing Lord Aldington of war crimes.

Zundelsite: Censoring history by way of libel actions is unfortunately the method the rich and well-connected use against their pesky critics.

Trifkovic: As a British army officer in Austria at the end of World War II, Lord Aldington — then known by his given name, Toby Low — oversaw the repatriation of thousands of Cossack and Yugoslav refugees [ Ed. … and, of course, the ethnic Germans from the Soviet Union and the Baltic states] . Many were subsequently killed or interned in prison camps.
At the libel trial, Lord Aldington agreed that the refugees’ fate was “ghastly” but said he had not known that many faced execution if returned to their homelands (The Washington Post, December 9, 2000).

Zundelsite: To assume that a high-ranking British Army officer in the field, whose unit daily interrogated refugees and prisoners-of-war, all of whom had either fled from, fought against, or at one time were part of Stalin’s army, is stretching credulity a bit too far. Only a fellow Lodge or Club member sitting as judge on a bench in London could be hypocritical enough to seem to believe such an answer.

Trifkovic: An obituary sometimes begs a thousand words – well worth doing in this case, especially since it’s been over a decade since we wrote about Aldington, Tolstoy, and one of the greatest untold tragedies of World War II. Zundelsite: The tragedy was not untold. There were millions of people affected by it, and detailed accounts have long been written about it. Only the British, and to a lesser degree, the American power elite suppressed it, because their clique had formulated and approved these vicious pro-Communist policies in Teheran and Yalta. They are co-guilty of what happened. They share in the responsibility for these atrocities.

Trifkovic: This is a story of heinous crimes that went unpunished and of establishment conspiracies to cover them up, of a miscarriage of justice, of one man’s quixotic efforts to tell the truth and another’s quiet campaign to keep it suppressed.

Zundelsite: Is it really “quixotic” to expose the deliberate murder of millions? At least there is now an admission that one man – not to mention his network of accomplices – tried to suppress this crime.

Trifkovic: The story starts at Yalta in February 1945, when the return of all Soviet citizens who found themselves in the Allied zone was demanded by Stalin — and was duly agreed to by Churchill and FDR. Accordingly, hundreds of thousands of Soviet POWs liberated by the Allies were sent back home, regardless of their wishes, and regardless of what Stalin had in store for them.

Zundelsite: What does that make Churchill and Roosevelt? Knowing and willing accomplices who had for years been briefed about Soviet war aims and the policies of Stalin and the behavior of his secret police and murderous Red Army. Yet they agreed to hand these people over!

Trifkovic: In addition, in May and June 1945 tens of thousands of refugees from Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union — unarmed civilians escaping communism, as well as anticommunist resistance fighters and assorted collaborationists — were rounded up by the British in Austria, and forcibly delivered to Stalin and Tito. Most of them were summarily executed, sometimes within earshot of the British.
Zundelsite: Within earshot not only of the British! Also the Czechs, the Hungarians, the Yugoslavs, Tito’s bunch of murderers, AND the Americans.

Trifkovic: Forced repatriations were known as Operation Keelhaul — the “last secret” of World War II, as Alexander Solzhenitsyn called it. Men, women, and children were forced into boxcars headed for the Soviet zone in the east, or for Slovenia in the south.

Trifkovic: Enter Lord Aldington, then a politically well-connected 30-year-old brigadier called Toby Low, who was the Fifth Corps chief of staff. He was also an aspiring Tory politician, hopeful of being nominated as a candidate at the forthcoming general election in Britain. Low had no qualms about acting upon Macmillan’s suggestions.

Zundelsite: No qualms? He admitted that the effect of his orders would be “ghastly”. It must be recalled that his orders were given after the war was lost, the shooting had stopped, the German Wehrmacht was defeated and had surrendered. There was no military justification for his actions – even of “military necessity”!

Trifkovic: On May 21, 1945 he issued an order to 5th Corps officers as to how to define Soviet citizenship: “Individual cases will NOT be considered unless particularly pressed . . . In all cases of doubt, the individual will be treated as a SOVIET NATIONAL.”
The émigrés’ fate was thus sealed. Tolstoy named Aldington in his last book as the chief executor of the policy of forced repatriation on the ground, the man who went way beyond the call of duty in carrying out Macmillan’s instructions, and who did so in contravention of orders.

Zundelsite: By this phrasing of the order – “. . . unless particularly pressed” – it is clear Aldington knew exactly what he was doing. It was premeditated. This was his “escape clause” to hypocritically be able to claim, should anyone find out what he had done, “Well, all they had to do was to press their claim!”
From behind barbed wire? At bayonet point? While being clubbed into submission by rifle butts?
The British Establishment clearly recognized that all of their wartime and post-war policies would one day become open to scrutiny – if Revisionists like Tolstoy would gain broad acceptance. That would have threatened their house of cards. No wonder they came to the rescue of their own disgraceful policies!

Trifkovic: The charges were serious, by British standards quite scandalous in fact, but Aldington was reluctant to sue Tolstoy over the book. He did sue one Nigel Watts instead, however, an obscure property developer who distributed a pamphlet — written by Tolstoy — in which Aldington was called a war criminal. The pamphlet included the following statements:
“As was anticipated by virtually everyone concerned, the overwhelming majority of these defenceless people, who reposed implicit trust in British honour, were either massacred in circumstances of unbelievable horror immediately following their handover, or condemned to a lingering death in Communist gaols and forced labour camps. These operations were achieved by a combination of duplicity and brutality without parallel in British history since the Massacre of Glencoe. . . The man who issued every order and arranged every detail of the lying and brutality which resulted in these massacres was Brigadier Toby Low, Chief of Staff to General Keightley’s 5 Corps, subsequently ennobled by Harold Macmillan as the 1st Baron Aldington . . . The evidence is overwhelming that he arranged the perpetration of a major war crime in the full knowledge that the most barbarous and dishonourable aspects of his operations were throughout disapproved and unauthorised by the higher command, and in the full knowledge that a savage fate awaited those he was repatriating… a major war criminal, whose activities merit comparison with those of the worst butchers of Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia.”

Trifkovic: As the author of the text Tolstoy felt honour-bound to include himself as Watts’ co-defendant.

Trifkovic: His mission in Austria accomplished, Brigadier Low returned to England on some unknown date in May 1945 to be selected as the Conservative MP for Blackpool — the beginning of the slow rise that would see him ennobled (by Macmillan!) and ushered into the boardrooms and elite gentlemen’s clubs of Britain.

Music teacher baronet jailed after ten-year-old pupil he abused breaks 30-year silence

  • Sir Peter Newson-Smith jailed for five-and-a-half years for indecent assault
  • Former pupil John Cartwright gave evidence to finally see justice
  • Incidents occurred at prestigious boarding school Clayesmore Prep, Dorset

A titled music teacher has been jailed for sexually abusing a ten-year-old boy 30 years ago – after the former pupil broke a lifetime’s silence.

Sir Peter Newson-Smith was found guilty of two charges of indecent assault while head of music at a prestigious boarding school, Clayesmore Prep, in Dorset.

He received a five-and-a-half-year sentence after victim John Cartwright flew from his home in Australia to give evidence against him.

A court heard how Newson-Smith, the 3rd Baronet of Totteridge, lured the ‘vulnerable and isolated’ pupil into a cupboard on ten separate occasions, before making him strip naked and molesting him.

Newson-Smith – who was described by his neighbours as a ‘pillar of the community’ – had also denied taking photos of the naked ten-year-old on a polaroid camera in 1981. The 66-year-old retired from the £7,500-a-term school in 2003 after 24 years.

Mr Cartwright, now 40, chose to waive his anonymity to speak to The Mail on Sunday in the hope that other victims of abuse will come forward.

The property developer said: ‘I just feel relief now that he has been jailed. I still don’t know whether I have fully come to terms with what happened to me but at least, for the first time, I have justice.’

Mr Cartwright, who has a eight- year-old daughter, said he decided to make his complaint in 2010 after he ‘thought about how I would react if the same thing were to happen to her’.

‘I never told anyone because it is extremely humiliating and embarrassing. I felt ashamed. It took 30 years for me to be able to say it. It’s not something that’s easy to mention.

‘It always stopped me from trying to do really well at anything because after those experiences, I never wanted to stand out, and that takes a long time to overcome.

‘At the time, I didn’t understand what was happening to me. Even now, I haven’t told my wife everything. But, when I saw how many pastoral awards the school had won, it made me angry, so I emailed the headmaster and told him what I’d gone through.’

Mr Cartwright also revealed how testifying in court was ‘without question the  scariest thing I’ve ever done’.

He added: ‘I don’t think there is anything more harrowing than having to stand up and talk openly about those kinds of experiences.’

Mr Cartwright’s sister Susan Callaway, 40, said: ‘I was also at that school and I understand how this could happen. You didn’t have anybody you could turn to. It is horrific.

‘He had his innocence taken away from him and that’s just not right.’

Sentencing Newson-Smith at Dorchester Crown Court, Judge Roger Jarvis said: ‘There is scarcely a greater breach of trust, when a young boy is entrusted to the care of a  boarding school, and that very considerable trust is abused.’

As the guilty verdict was read out, Newson-Smith’s wife Mary-Ann, with whom he has four children, broke down in tears. ‘It can’t be true,’ she said. ‘What will I tell the children?’

A titled music teacher jailed for sexually abusing a ten-year-old pupil has had his conviction quashed.

Sir Peter Newson-Smith was found guilty last May of two charges of indecent assault while head of music at boarding school Clayesmore Prep, in Dorset, 30 years ago.

But the Court of Appeal has now ruled that the evidence given by his alleged victim, John Cartwright, now in his 40s, was misleading because he failed to disclose he planned to sue Sir Peter and the school for damages.

Matthew Scott’s on John Smyth QC and Winchester College

Beating posh boys for Jesus: John Smyth

Here I need to make a disclosure: I was a pupil at Winchester College from 1975 to 1979, both my parents taught at the school and my father was “second master” (in effect the deputy head) for about 17 years from 1962, although he had reverted to being merely an assistant teacher by 1982. I therefore grew up surrounded by the school. It was my home as well as my school so you will understand that I feel a considerable affection for the place, and indeed for the excellent former Headmaster, John Thorn, a good and wise man who is now in his 90s.

As far as I know I never met Smyth, although in the late 1970s his name was certainly familiar to many people in the school community. Within the college there was an organisation of evangelical Christians called “Christian Forum” with which Smyth was in some way associated, although how formally I have no idea. He was not a teacher at the school, although his name would crop up from time to time. Some of my more evangelically-minded contemporaries used to receive invitations to Sunday lunch at his house. I never received any of this hospitality, if that is the correct term, so I certainly cannot speak to the truth of his “infamous shed” or of the canes with which he is said to have administered savage beatings

John Whittingdale’s boast to former lover Stephanie Hudson on their first date that he was an arms dealer fresh back from Ukraine has a curious echo of another aspect of his personal and political life.

Whittingdale has links with Dmitry Firtash, a Ukrainian gas oligarch and ally of Vladimir Putin.

Mr Firtash owns a mansion in Knightsbridge and is wanted by America’s FBI on bribery and corruption charges.

Mr Whittingdale has declared thousands of pounds worth of trips paid for by the Firtash-backed British Ukraine Society (BUS) – to which the MP belongs – in the Commons Register.

Caught between Russia and the US? The curious case of Ukraine’s Dmytro Firtash

In London, Firtash enjoyed better contacts. In the days after Maidan, he had briefed the Foreign Office on events in Ukraine, in a meeting apparently set up by Conservative MP John Whittingdale and the Tory peer Richard Spring, both of whom are part of the British Ukrainian Society, set up by Firtash.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jan/23/dmytro-firtash-ukraine-oligarch-exile-caught-between-russia-us

Firtash and Prince Philip

He is accused of leading a criminal organisation allegedly involved in bribery and corruption while trying to win a foreign business contract.

The Justice Department alleges that at least $18.5m (£11m) was transferred via US financial institutions to be used as bribes.

“He knows a whole lot of things about the elites in Russia and Ukraine,” the source said.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-27235510

Dirty money from the East has become a resource for dozens of European structures and politicians. Sergii Leshchenko reports on some of those that are only too happy to open their doors to a Ukrainian oligarch willing to invest millions in cleaning up his image.

Until he received his peerage, Lord Risby was a member of the House of Commons. As an MP, Richard Spring, as he then was, was obliged to declare payments he received in compensation for his work in his capacity as BUS director. In 2007 and 2008 the future Lord declared receiving between 35,000 and 40,000 British pounds annually for this work.

Apart from Lord Risby, Firtash’s circle of UK lobbyists includes the MP John Whittingdale. He is the former chair of the parliamentary group on cooperation with the Ukrainian parliament…

Whittingdale has attended numerous events abroad, with expenses paid by BUS. In particular, he took part in Ukraine Tomorrow, the Vienna meeting that launched the Ukrainian Modernization Agency. Over the past five years BUS has reimbursed Whittingdale for travel expenses to the tune of almost 15,000 pounds, as documented on the British parliament website.

…Apart from the individuals listed above, Firtash enjoys the PR support of Lord Bell, former political consultant to Margaret Thatcher

(On 19 November 1977 Bell was fined £50 for indecency. He had exposed himself while masturbating at his Hampstead bathroom window on 21 October in full view of female passers-by.[4][5] ), who helped her win three parliamentary elections. Lord Bell, whom Thatcher rewarded with a peerage, uses the company Bell Pottinger to represent his clients’ interests. The person who provides the link between Firtash and Bell is Anthony Fisher, senior consultant with Bell Pottinger and director of the Firtash Foundation.

….the British Ukrainian Society is but a front for Dmytro Firtash’s agents of influence – Vladimir Granovsky, Robert Shetler-Jones and Lords Oxford and Risby.

The Ukrainian connection: John Whittingdale amongst MPs criticised for close ties with ex-Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych’s favourite energy magnate Dmitry Firtash

Erstwhile Yanukovych ally Firtash closer to extradition to the U.S.

Dmytro Firtash, a Ukrainian mogul whose political tentacles extend to Washington, London, Moscow and the Ukrainian diaspora community, faces extradition to the U.S. on bribery charges following a Vienna court ruling on February 21.

Vienna’s Higher Regional Court reversed a lower court’s ruling from April 2015 that said U.S. authorities were partially politically motivated in their pursuit of Mr. Firtash over $18.5 million in kickbacks that he allegedly arranged for Indian officials in order to mine titanium for Boeing, a major aerospace company and mainstay U.S. military government contractor.

Trump, Clinton, ties

During his three-year extradition battle in Vienna, Mr. Firtash has relied on a heavyweight legal team that includes former U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Lanny Davis, former special counsel to President Bill Clinton, according to a Wall Street Journal report published on February 21. Mr. Chertoff served as national security adviser to Hillary Clinton when she served as secretary of state.

President Donald Trump’s former election campaign chief, Paul Manafort, is also a business associate of Mr. Firtash. The two embarked on an $885 million property development project in 2008 at New York’s Drake Hotel in 2008, according to U.S. court documents and media reports, including Bloomberg.

Both Mr. Firtash and Mr. Manafort deny the allegations. Mr. Manafort, who was instrumental in getting Mr. Yanukovych elected as president in 2010, quit his campaign post for Mr. Trump when his business dealings with Russia-aligned Ukrainians emerged.

British connections

Mr. Firtash is known in the U.K. for having connections with senior British parliamentarians, including former Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport John Whittingdale and Lord Risby (Richard Spring) through his backing of the British Ukrainian Society, a parliamentary organization, according to a Financial Times report.

He cultivated these connections through British citizen Robert Shetler-Jones, whom he has known since the 1990s. Mr. Shetler-Jones headed the oligarch’s parent company, Group DF, and is still on the company’s supervisory board together with Lord Oxford (Raymond Asquith), who once headed MI6’s Moscow station and helped exfiltrate former KGB officer-turned British secret agent Oleg Gordievsky in the 1980s.

Chinese students in UK on the rise

There’s been a sharp rise in recent years in Chinese students attending British public schools. A growing number of Chinese parents are opting to spend thousands of dollars a year on an expensive British education. But as Olly Barratt reports, this often means children boarding in the UK, thousands of miles away from their families.

Caldicott school in Buckinghamshire, near London – one of the top preparatory schools in the UK.

It takes boys aged 7 to 13, many of them boarders.

And it, like other British schools, is seeing a rise in interest from Chinese parents.

This class contains Caldicott’s brightest pupils – studying hard for scholarships to major public schools like Eton, Harrow and Radley.

Stoke Mandeville Hospital Paedophile Ring – Sir Jimmy Savile, Dr Michael Salmon, Dreamflight Charity

Update: Jan 10 2017

Is this jumbo jet Christmas party with Jimmy Savile – the BA charity project Skyride – the inspiration for Dreamflight?

(There couldn’t have been too many “Christmas jumbo jet parties for children” in 1985 in England)

savile-jumbo-jet-children-1985

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

 

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

 

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

link

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

 

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

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

link

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

ww:

Well that can’t be true –

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The jury was also told Mr Salmon, who will be sentenced next Monday, admitted three charges of indecent assault in 1991.

Savile was believed to have assaulted more than 60 people at Stoke Mandeville Hospital between 1968 and 1992.

Savile’s youngest victim was aged eight.

Dr Michael Salmon tied a 14-year-old girl, who cannot be named, to a couch and raped her.

One complainant said he talked to her inappropriately and showed her sexual illustrations in a book. Moore said Salmon (a paediatrician) accepted he had the book The Joy of Sex in his consulting rooms.

Dr Michael Salmon, who comes from a distinguished family of doctors going back several generations, name-dropped eminent doctors he had worked alongside in his position.

Stoke Mandeville was at the centre of a child sex abuse scandal in the late 1980s when a consultant paediatrician, Dr Michael Salmon, was investigated after a whistleblower came forward to the health authority.

Dr Michael Salmon, a consultant paediatrician at the Aylesbury hospital, was suspended in 1989 after an investigation by government auditors prompted by concerns about possible financial improprieties. During the inquiry investigators found evidence relating to teenage patients of Salmon and a criminal investigation was launched.

Salmon was jailed for three years in 1990 after admitting indecent assaults on two 13-year-old girls and a 16-year-old girl.

Three years earlier he had been praised by Diana, Princess of Wales, for helping to organise a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida for 300 disabled children (Dreamflight)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Two others worked alongside former DJ at Stoke Mandeville hospital

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

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

June Thornton, a former nurse at the infirmary, said this month Savile molested a brain-damaged young girl who was a patient at the hospital. Thornton was recovering from an operation herself when she said she saw Savile “kissing her neck, running his hands up and down her arms, and then started to molest her”.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Queen Elizabeth with sadistic, necrophiliac, paedophile Sir Jimmy Savile

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

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

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

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


via troy:

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

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

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


Dreamflight

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pat Pearce MBE Biography

my dream flights pat pearce.GIF

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

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

Savile lived at Stoke;

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

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

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


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

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

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

Queen honours volunteer Yvonne Trueman

Sister of Dreamflight’s Derek Pereira – Yvonne Trueman

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

trueman-and-queen

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stoke-Mandeville Hospital  Paedophile Ring

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

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

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

Bruce Bailey worked at world-renowned Stoke Mandeville Hospital

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

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

He is second doctor at Bucks hospital accused of abusing patients

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

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

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

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

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

Angry Judge Jails Pervert Doctor of Stoke Mandeville

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

linklink

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

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

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

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

The Trustees at that time were

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Luke Lucas:

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

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

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

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

Image result for BOUrnemouth the Maison Royale

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Image result for BOUrnemouth 1972 the Maison Royale

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

He demanded that it be taken down.

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

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

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

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

A midnight curfew was imposed.

It was the last straw.

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

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

http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/features/snapshotsofthepast/838538.The_day_the_music_died/

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2014

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

How come then that Jo Summers, Solicitor for Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust, said in a BBC story on October 23 2012

‘……..the charity’s trustees had been left “personally shocked” by the sex abuse scandal, stressing they had absolutely no idea of the alleged crimes now coming to light. They knew Jimmy for many years, volunteered to be his charity trustees. They can’t recognise the person they are reading about in the papers,”

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-20001588

Which trustee was it, I wonder?

Dr Roger Bodley MA, BM BCh, FRACGP, FRCR, FRANZCR

Dr Bodley qualified from Oxford in 1973 and shortly after came to Burnie as an RMO where he worked with Donough O’Brien, John Kille, Don McTaggart and Graham Standen amongst others.

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

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

His special interests include spinal and interventional radiology.

Northern Tasmania

MISC:

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


 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

dreamflight-auto-bio-history-salmon

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

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

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

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

Dreamflight 1987 – 1:45 on the video.

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“The thing about me is I get things done and I work deep cover,” Sir Jimmy, 81, tells Esquire. “I’ve known the Royal Family for a million years.”

 Stoke Mandeville Hospital Our history

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

Ludwig Guttmann

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

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

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

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