Heroes for Exposing Child Sexual Abuse – Part 1 – Peter McKelvie / by Cathy Fox blog



Excellent work, Cathy! The way Britain’s paedo Establishment has treated McKelvie is utterly disgusting.


Pl read & RT!

Excellent article on Peter McKelvie & the shambolic article of falsehoods in Daily Fail & their lame (non)apology.


Heroes for Exposing Child Sexual Abuse – Part 1 – Peter McKelvie

Peter McKelvie worked as a Senior Child Protection manager for Hereford and Worcester.

As part of that work he was given access by West Mercia Police to Peter Righton’s Diary.

In his diary Peter Righton had listed the names and ages of each boy he had abused from 1957 onwards in categories of which institution the victims had been resident at the time, and most sickeningly of all, had scored each child’s level of abuse from 1 (touching) to 10 (buggery).

Peter McKelvie explains more here [6]

“One of the many reasons I contacted Tom Watson MP in October 2012 was my anger and frustration that Peter Righton had been allowed to die with just one minor conviction for possession of indecent images of children when I knew how evil a web he had spun in full sight of leading social work agencies such as the National Children’s Bureau and the National Institute of Social Work not to mention the high regard he was obviously held in at the Department of Health.

Much has been made of Savile being given the keys to Broadmoor.

Righton didn’t need the keys, he could walk in to any children’s home or local authority boarding school in the UK on ” official business ”

I was given full access by West Mercia police to Righton’s diaries and letters which gave the clues to a large network of Paedophiles with “official ” access to children.

Unfortunately my team weren’t allowed to pursue these leads ourselves as the alleged offences occurred outside our statutory geographical boundaries

We had to pass all our relevant information on to other local authorities.

With the full support of my then Director of Social  Services, David Tombs, I wrote a report for the Department of Health pleading for them to agree to fund and set up a “National Joint Social Worker/Police investigation team” so that we could pursue all the leads we had and go anywhere the evidence took us.

Righton in his diaries had made the task of investigation relatively straightforward.

He had listed the names and ages of each boy he had abused from 1957 onwards in categories of which institution the victims had been resident at the time,and most sickeningly of all, had scored each child’s level of abuse from 1 (touching) to 10 (buggery)

My Director was prepared to release me and 2 of my social workers to be part of such a team if we were seen as suitable applicants. Nothing came of this request and this huge body of evidence against Righton fell in to a black hole. A small group of us, a very senior Police  Officer, two very experienced investigative journalists and myself met with a senior Opposition Party MP in 1994 to lodge a complaint and demand action.

We named MP’s that we believed might be involved in this organised network. Nothing came of that either.

My Director David Tombs retired in 1994 and my team was closed down and disbanded virtually immediately afterwards.” [6]

Peter McKelvies team was closed down.

This was a Hereford and Worcestershire document from 1993 which Peter McKelvie authored. It mentions

  • Righton’s PIE links
  • Links to the Swedish and Norwegian “PIE’s”
  • Organised abuse in Gozo, Malta with Righton and another man involved in “trade” in victims
  • Likely paedophiles as a bishop, social services and education staff and civil servants
  • Individuals in possible major institutional abuse
  • Ability to prove that Righton abused many boys in a school 30 years ago (probably Redhill School)
  • Righton’s connections to “rentboy” scene in London
  • Righton abuse of boys, either in care or known to social services, all over the country
  • Several boxfuls of letters and his diaries

mcrighton1mrrighton2

In another document entitled “A Personal Viewpoint” Peter McKelvie suggests

  • Coordinated network of professionals involved in abuse of children
  • Access to children was easy via various official schemes
  • Children were being trafficked around the country
  • Small joint task force of 4 experienced social workers and 4 police be set up
  • Task force should investigate PIE and abuse in social work

personalreport

Peter Righton, a serial child abuser, got away with it all the way until his death in 2007, even though there was evidence written in his own hand in diaries and letters.

He was Director of the National Institute of Social Work Directors and despite his host of contacts all over Britain, and uninhibited access to children through the Social Services, Righton was never tried for serious sexual assaults or rape.

All he ever got was a fine of £900 when he was caught importing child abuse images in 1992, and separately a caution for indecent assault, probably in 1994/5 [15]

arrest1992 Sept 17 Guardian Pg5  [HT @CraftyMuvva]

How did Righton get away with it?

“..Peter Righton was questioned about indecent assaults on children by the Obscene Publications Squad in November 1994 – several months after the Hereford & Worcester investigation had been shut down, and after the BBC documentary Secret Life of a Paedophile had been broadcast [June 1]”[9]

BBC Secret Life of a Paedophile[9]

Righton’s contacts were numerous, some are outlined here Goodness and Harmony Diplomatic Connections and PIE / Diplomat Robert Alston – brother of Richard Alston[26]

Also many are here, (click on link below the picture on the number)

Greenlight Brain Peter Righton [28]

Nearly all of those connected to him got away with it as well. Most appear never to have even been charged.  Those that did get charged got lightly dealt with.

Richard Alston got away with it – at present I cannot find any conviction from 1992-95 for Richard Alston who was Peter Rightons long term partner, and Headmaster of New Barns School for special needs pupils in Toddington, Gloucestershire.

Charles Napier got away lightly. Although he had a conviction from back in April 1972 for indecency with schoolboys in his charge [15] it appears that no effort was made to look for further abuse since. Napier was charged with just two counts of indecent assault and received a 9 month sentence. This was possibly for the abuse mentioned in the letter found at Bloomfield’s House. Charles Scott Napier 1995 Dec 8 Court of Appeal [18]. Charles Napier is the half brother to Conservative MP and recent minister John Whittingdale.

Morris Fraser was connected to Righton, but in his own right was connected to many others,and a prolific child abuser wherever he went.  Bits of Books Blog has a good timeline Dr Morris Fraser, Belfast, Long Island New York, Islington[27]

A proper investigation of Fraser by the Obscene Publications Squad would have investigated the Azimuth Trust. It had featured in the television programme about Righton – Secret Life of a Paedophile[9]. Fraser had been accused of child sexual abuse in the Report of the Azimuth Trust Cornwall Council Publish 1994 Azimuth Trust Report [19]

The Paedophile Information Exchange, PIE was probably the most notorious child abuse organisation ever. Peter Righton was one of the founder members. There was documentary evidence of his host of connections to many members. Nothing was done.

(click on link below the picture on the number)

Greenlight Brain PIE[29]

Abroad Righton also had connections in Norway, Sweden, Malta and the Netherlands

Whoever is responsible for shutting down the investigation into Righton, and his connections is culpable for all the abuse carried out by Righton, Napier, Alston and others since 1994. Many serial child abusers were allowed to spend most of their lives abusing children.

The fact that the investigation did not far was not due to lack of evidence, it did not get far for other reasons. What were they?

Who was responsible?

Michael Hames was Head of the Obscene Publications Squad from 1990 until his retirement in Sept 1993, [p297] Wikipedia states 1994 [8]

Let us look at what Hames says of the investigation in his book. 2001 Michael Hames The Dirty Squad  is available here [15]

Hames on the Peter Righton Investigation

[All information and pages numbers in this section is from Hames book unless stated [15]]

Hames’s section on Peter Righton starts on page 208. He says he heard of the Righton case in September 1992 with a phone call from a detective in Evesham, West Mercia. They had been on a raid with customs, and found disturbing things at the house of Peter Righton.

Hames rang Valerie Howarth from Childline to find out who Peter Righton was, found he was a “big fish”. That day he sent 2 officers to help search Righton’s house in Evesham under a search warrant and seized a large amount of material.

They wanted to continue the inquiry continued at Righton’s partner, Richard Alston’s school in Gloucestershire, where he was Headmaster and Righton a governor, but Hames says that was not met with enthusiasm.

Hames spoke to Herbert Laming, Chief Inspector of Social Services Inspectorate, who told him that government ministers and himself were keen to get to the truth and that a comprehensive inquiry be established. This was begun by joint Police and Social services team in Hereford and Worcester.

It was found that Righton was a member of PIE and contributed a chapter of Perspectives on Paedophilia in 1981. He was charged with possession of indecent photographs, pleaded guilty and fined. Hames says that was the extent of action that could be taken against him under the law. This is correct for the images at the time, but not for his other offences.

They found Righton had written to Dept of Education to remove Charles Napier from List 99, of banned teachers. Napier had been convicted on indecency in 1972 with schoolboys in his charge.

Investigation was made into Alston’s school in West Country.  According to Hames [15] Operation Clarence was set up by him with the officers responsible Graham Passingham and Dave Flanagan, targeting schoolmasters and people involved in Education in particular, which soon traced links between Righton and other offenders.

According to Bob Long and Bob McLachlans book  [p178 [31]] Operation Clarence started to investigate a paedophile network consisting mainly of public school teachers, doctors, clergy men, and others involved in social work [31]. No mention is made of Peter Righton.

David Bloomfield (I think wrongly spelled Blomfield in Hames’s book) Chief Executive of charity Standing Conference on Schools Science and Technology was a target, where they found child abuse images in his flat and a letter from Napier [15]

Napier was employed as teacher in Cairo and the letter boasted of abuse against boys there.

Hames says the inquiry finished in 1994, and the results were disappointing despite building up a huge database.

  • Napier having previously been suspended by the British Council was suspended, and when he returned to UK was arrested, charged with indecent assault and given 18 months. [The court appeal [18] clearly states that the two 9 months sentences, one for each count of indecent assault were concurrent not consecutive ie a total of 9 months, not added together, so Hames appears to have got this wrong]
  • Blomfield [correct probably Bloomfield] was fined for possession of what was called then “child pornography” and sacked from his job. He went to Portugal.
  • Righton was cautioned for an offence of indecent assault that had taken place 30 years previously.
  • The Home Office left the recommendation from the joint investigation that a National inquiry be set up on file. [NB further research check Home Office and who might have been there in 1994]

[Would be useful if someone with the book could upload relevant pages]

Christopher Harry Ashby, UK, a primary school teacher from Kent was arrested and found guilty as well Philip Taylor [32]

This leaves many questions about the Police investigation both with Hames in charge and after he had left.

Was the investigation carried out properly when Hames was Head of the unit? Even he says he was disappointed with the outcome.

  • Was a caution really the best that could be achieved with the wealth of evidence that we now know he had in Righton’s diary? Strangely Hames did not mention such a goldmine find in his book.
  • When did the unit under Hames interview Righton, if at all?
  • Why did they not follow up Righton’s serious offences?
  • Why was no action taken against Richard Alston? Was that Hames’s decision?
  • Was this really the best the investigation into all the other contacts of Righton?
  • Why were no PIE contacts arrested and charged?
  • Was there any interference from Government departments?

Hames had a heart attack and DCI Jim Reynolds came into the squad from Stolen Motor Vehicle Squad and then took over when Hames retired [p45 [31]]. It is uncertain when Hames was off with a heart attack, or when Reynolds actually took over, and who was acting head in the meantime.

  • Why did the Unit interview Righton in Nov 1994? It was over 6 months after the TV programme.
  • Was it this Nov 1994 interview that ended in a caution?
  • Why did they not follow up Righton’s serious offences?
  • Why did they not follow up PIE connections?
  • Why did they not follow up abuse abroad?
  • Was there any outside interference from any Government departments?
  • Why was the investigation shut down?
  • Who shut it down?

It appears that Hames and Reynolds have questions to be asked about their time in charge and the lack of results on the child sexual abuse of Righton, Alston, PIE and more.

Righton moved to Suffolk, with Richard Alston to the Thornham Magna Estate near Eye, owned by Lord Henniker.

[As an aside, another child abuser Norman Walker [35] owned the Diana Quenton School, Park House, Palgrave, Suffolk, and had connections in Eye. If anyone knows  of any connections of Walker in the area I would be grateful and particularly grateful if anyone has any documents or paper from the School. Could you check them for a watermark and contact me if there is one.]

Child Sexual Abuse in 2012

Let me jump forward in time 18 years to October 2012. All this time during which children were being abused by Righton, Alston and Napier and others in PIE.

Most people in 2012 did not know that child sexual abuse was widespread and affected millions of people. That milestone had not been reached, that Rubicon had yet to be crossed.

Details about Jimmy Savile’s child abuse and the cover up of it by the BBC was just starting to come out. On 19 October 2012 the Metropolitan Police Service launched a formal criminal investigation, Operation Yewtree, into historic allegations of child sexual abuse by Savile and other people

In Oct 2012 Peter McKelvie had approached Tom Watson and briefed him on the Peter Righton case that had got virtually nowhere in 1992

On 24th October 2012 Tom asked a question, recorded in Hansard [13]

paedoringhansardHowever it is best to watch it, if only for David Cameron’s face which appeared as though he was having a severe bout of constipation.

 

2012 Oct 24 Tom Watson question re Righton network in House of Commons [12]

Tom Watson expanded a little in his blog later that day

atsonpmq1watsonpmq2

The establishment, the deep state and the child abusers themselves were no doubt very worried indeed at the spotlight being put on them as never before.

Another couple of boundaries had been crossed.

  • Mentioning child sexual abuse in the House of Commons, something rarely done and probably not done since Geoffrey Dickens
  • Bringing up the subject of child sexual abuse by VSIP (Very Self Important Persons) in Westminster and Number 10 Downing Street

(Incidentally another significant factor is that Tom Watson had a powerful enemy in Rupert Murdoch, having written a book exposing his Murdoch’s dodgy workings which helped lead Murdoch to what he famously said was the most humble day of his life, before a Parliamentary panel. So Watson was always going to get a hard ride from the Sun, the Times, Sky etc)

Peter McKelvie took the responsible course, when it was easier to do nothing. He had told an MP who he thought would take him seriously, and did. He should be warmly praised for his actions.

This was way before a National inquiry or IICSA was being considered.

In 2013 Peter McKelvie sent letters to the David Cameron and Nick Clegg only to get the brush off from a communications unit [10] Spotlight on Abuse Category Peter McKelvie.

He even got replies from non existent people. You can see many of his letters here Spotlight on Abuse Category Peter McKelvie[10]

They all show a responsible man dedicated to exposing the truth about child rape that he had evidence was happening and that had in the past been either virtually ignored by the Police or they were directed to drop the Inquiry by departments in government, despite much evidence of organised abuse within social services and child trafficking and PIE.

On Jul 8 2014 the Home Secretary to her credit, finally bowing to building pressure, announced an inquiry into child abuse, it seems probably against the wishes of other ministers including Prime Minister David Cameron.

Police opened several Operations from Peter McKelvie’s initial information.

Peter McKelvie was a major if not the major influence on the setting up of the initial umbrella inquiry Operation Fairbank by the Metropolitan Police in late 2012. This  was a scoping exercise and as a result of allegations arising from Operation Fairbank, a full criminal investigation, Operation Fernbridge, was launched in February 2013. Various spin offs came from this eg Operation Cayacos which investigated allegations of a paedophile ring linked to Peter Righton [30]

It resulted in the arrest and charging of Charles Napier, this time for crimes more on a scale of the crime she had perpetrated. Richard Alston was also jailed for 21 months.

On 23 Dec 2014 the Daily Mail’s Mark Duell trumpeted Napier’s hundreds of assaults on at least 23 victims dating back to the before his previous obviosuly insufficient charges. Tory MP’s half-brother who was known as ‘Rapier Napier’ by his pupils and helped run Paedophile Information Exchange is jailed for 13 years for HUNDREDS of sex assaults on young boys in the 60s and 70s [17]

One victim even estimated he abused a quarter of the pupils he taught [17]

Peter McKelvie gives his take in the East Anglian Daily times after Richard Alston was found guilty. [34]

Peter must have been feeling mixed emotions, satisfaction that his information and persistence had led to the starting of these Operations but frustration that the 1992-4 Obscene Publications Squad  inquiry had missed a golden opportunity to stop Napier, Alston, Righton and many others hurting more children for life.

Peter was appointed to the Victims’ and Survivors Consultative Panel (VSCP) of National Child Abuse Inquiry on Jul 9 2015 [14]. This was a surprise to many people, who although they knew of his excellent work against child sexual abuse, never had an inkling that he might have been subjected to this abuse himself.

Publicly outing himself selflessly in a bid to help others, another brave decision. A downside was that the Inquiry, now being heavily lawyer driven prevented him making any public statements.

Then out of the blue, on Oct 15 2015 came this bizarre article from the Mail, with Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill on the byline.

It was nothing short of a vicious hatchet job on Peter McKelvie.

Mail Hatchet Job on Peter McKelvie

 

mailmckelviesmearmailmckelvvsmear2mailsmearmckelv3The Mail stated Peter McKelvie

  • “plotted” to smear top Tory MP
  • gave Tom Watson false information
  • tried to wreck a top Torys career with paedophile smears
  • wrongly claimed the MP was linked to child molestors
  • made “baseless smears”
  • and his credibility has been thrown in doubt

Pretty damning stuff at first sight on a superficial basis, or if you were unaware of the true position and facts, which of course most Daily Mail / Mail Online readers are.

My opinion

I made clear my opinion at the time, as did others.

cathywrighttweetsmailslur3Stephen Wright @mailwright closed his twitter account about a week after publishing the defamatory article as is referred to above.

wrightcathyslur1

However sadly Peter McKelvie resigned next day from the panel [14]

 

mc-svcp

I am unsure of the facts and circumstances surrounding this.

  • Was Peter McKelvie’s resignation a coincidence nothing to do with the Mail hatchet job?
  • Did the Inquiry bow to newspaper pressure and invent a reason that Peter McKelvie should leave, and then advised him to resign, fearful of more bad publicity?
  • Did Peter McKelvie leave entirely of his own accord, to fight the false allegations, to prevent further publicity or even some other reason?

One thing I do know is that Peter, having done more than almost anyone else to bring the child rape and child abuse to the correct police and political avenues, time and again and face setback and cover up over 20 years, will have felt the humiliation of these false allegations deeply.

Where does this leave the Mail story by Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill? 

Well quite frankly in tatters.

None of their opinion is correct in fact.

Not one piece of evidence is provided by the Mail, and as is routine for the corporate media, no links or references to where those opinions were derived from.

The only part of article Report that is not the Mail’s or writer’s opinion is the opinion attributed to Mike Hames.

I do not trust the Mail or the two people purporting to be journalists on the byline to accurately reflect the opinion of anyone. Further proof is needed of the quotes and it would also be good to know if Hames is paid by the Mail.

That being said, the Mail says

“A former senior Scotland Yard officer, who concluded more than 20 years ago that there was no substance to Mr McKelvie’s claims about a paedophile ring linked to Downing Street, said he was ‘surprised’ by his appointment.
Mike Hames, respected ex head of the Met’s paedophile squad, added: ‘Mr Watson’s claims about the Downing Street-linked paedophile ring set the hare running on the VIP sex ring scandal. But there has never been any substance to these claims, which originated from Mr McKelvie.”

This appears to say that Hames concluded there was no substance to a link to Downing Street.

Even accepting Hames is reported accurately and his premise is true for the purposes of this point, (and of course there is much to said against), it is no reflection on Peter McKelvie in bringing the matter to the attention of the correct authorities, and Peter had good reason and information to believe what he told Watson. Note also that Hames does not deny a link to Parliament.

Hames quite clearly has a vested interest that his inquiry is not reinvestigated, as he would to a large extent be to blame if it was shown to be inadequate.

The recent Napier and Alston convictions alone show that the 1992-1994 Obscene Publications Squad investigation was inadequate. There are also many more people other than Napier and Alston who should be investigated.

The final comment that the Mail made was that “Mr McKelvie has close links to a man known as ‘Nick’. This is false. Peter McKelvie did not have “close links” to Nick but he did advise him to go to the Police, just as any other responsible person might, despite the police failings time after time in connection to child sexual abuse.

Nick was responsible for allegations which the now disbanded Operation Midland was investigating. The press have widely discredited Nick as a fantastist. I do not have the evidence to know whether this is true or not, or what is the truth about Nicks allegations.

However I believe that this was a transparent attempt by the writers to link Peter McKelvie to Nick to discredit Peter McKelvie by association. Further I believe that it was an attempt to link other VIP (VSIP) Operations to the Operation Midland one in the public mind, so as to discredit all VSIP child sexual abuse allegations.

I have no hesitation in saying that Mail article was false, and in my view defamatory and libellous, and that the Mail tried to smear Peter McKelvie.

But that is just my analysis. Read the opinion of Dr. Sarah Nelson about Peter McKelvie and his team.

She wrote a book Tackling Child Sexual Abuse : Radical Approaches to Prevention, Protection and Support [23].  Sarah is an expert in this field,  from 2006-11 an advisor to the Scottish  advisor to the Scottish Parliament’s  Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation  in Scotland in 2014.

She states Peter McKelvie’s team convicted about 38 paedophiles, and closed 7 boarding schools as well as unearthed evidence of a ring stretching to the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

She states, amongst many other things that the work of McKelvie’s team was one of the “striking successes in child protection”

HT @ciabaudo

Peter McKelvies integrity is solid.

I believe these cases are also due to Peter McKelvies information.

The Integrity of Stephen Wright, Sam Greenhill and the Daily Mail

All this evidence leaves questions about the Mail article and Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill.

                                                         Stephen Wright lied and no apology

                                                   Sam Greenhill @s_greenhill lied and no apology

  • Why was it written?
  • Did Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill write this or were their names just put on the byline?
  • Was it written under instruction of someone higher up the Mail hierarchy, the owner of the newspaper, or were they told to write it by MI5 and secret services? If so who?
  • Why was it so inaccurate? The research was either abysmal or it was deliberate.
  • Is there any other reason that it was written apart from a hatchet job on Peter McKelvie?
  • Corporate media Mail wrote fake news. What are they trying to hide, and who are they trying to protect?

Then the other day, all the Mail can manage is a snivelling little non apology

peter-mc

It is quite bizarre.

Is this a non-apology apology? They are unlikely to do this through choice. Why should they do this so long after the event?

In an ideal world, the Mail should be made accountable for their sanctions and false statements. That could be said to be in court in public and made to justify their statements.

However we do not live in an ideal world, especially where rich corporations libel normal individuals. The corporations have many tricks to prevent this such as employing expensive lawyers, dragging out litigation, increasing stress on the victim and families, gag clauses to settle, payment into court of large sums  of money to prevent the case reaching court. If it does reach court and the judge awards less money than the money put into court then they have to pay the court costs of the other party, a gamble few will take, as it would drive them into bankruptcy.

No word from Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill. They should hang their heads in shame after writing that libellous drivel and hiding behind the Daily Mail and all the unfair advantages that gives them.

How dare Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill impugn the integrity of Peter McKelvie, who has worked steadfastly for years for the truth, when you accept the Mail’s 20 pieces of silver to wrongly slur this fine man.

Peter McKelvie is a hero.

Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill. Shame on you. You are not fit to wipe Peter’s arse.

Update: Apr 20 2017

Church admits ‘more robust action’ should have been taken against Norwich priest Anthony McSweeney jailed for sexual abuse

The Catholic Church has admitted it should have taken “more robust action” against a former Norwich priest jailed for sexually abusing a vulnerable teenage boy at a children’s home.

Anthony McSweeney was jailed for three years in 2015, after he was found guilty of indecently assaulting the youngster while working at Grafton Close Children’s Home in Hounslow, West London, between 1979 and 1981.

Concerns were raised in 1998, when his cleaner discovered his stash of sex toys, truncheons and pornographic videos at St Peter’s Catholic Church in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.

Initially it was threatened that he would be “banished” from the priesthood.

But instead of being reported to the police, he was quietly moved to a new parish, St George’s, in Norwich, where he led the Sprowston Road church’s congregation.

Now, the safeguarding commissions of the dioceses of East Anglia and Brentwood have accepted the recommendations made in an independent review following McSweeney’s conviction, and that “there were failings in the way in which the Church managed the situation at the time”.

In a statement issued by the two dioceses, it said: “The Church should have taken more robust action following the discovery of video tapes in 1998, later referred to in Anthony McSweeney’s trial, and should have ensured that the matter was reported to the police so that a full investigation could have taken place.”

It also accepted “local priests and parishioners were not adequately supported, their concerns were not taken sufficiently seriously, nor acted upon diligently” and “Anthony McSweeney’s subsequent transfer to East Anglia […] was poorly managed, lacked insight and was not adequately documented.”

The dioceses said national safeguarding procedures put in place in 2001 would mean a similar matter would now be passed straight to the police.

Now, if a priest asks to be transferred from one diocese to another, formal undertakings have to be given that the priest is of good standing before such a move can take place.

However, the statement added: “At the time of these events awareness of the need for child protection was in its infancy.”

The dioceses have also raised the following recommendations with both the Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service, and the National Catholic Safeguarding Commission:

• To review and clarify the existing policy about priests transferring from one diocese to another to ensure consistency and transparency in the process in all the dioceses in England and Wales, and in particular, to ensure that any issues to do with safeguarding are resolved before any such move can take place;

• To issue clear guidelines for managing cases potentially involving indecent images;

• To review the existing ‘whistleblowing’ policy.

The chairmen of the two safeguarding commissions, Denis White of East Anglia, and Linda Ransom of Brentwood, expressed their thanks to those who assisted the review.

They added they were committed to ensuring “very high standards of safeguarding practice within the dioceses, in particular for children and vulnerable adults, but also for the benefit of the whole Church”.

Representatives from St George’s Church did not wish to comment.

Background

McSweeney was arrested in 2013 after police began investigating abuse following revelations about Jimmy Savile.

When he appeared at Southwark Crown Court in early 2015, the court heard how McSweeney – who was also found guilty of making indecent images of children – abused the teenager with his close friend John Stingemore, 72, who managed the care home and was found dead in January 2015 – weeks before his trial.

Prosecutor Sarah Plaschkes QC said: “This was a joint enterprise by both men, to use the victim for their own sexual gratification.

“There was grooming behaviour used against the victim – both men used the washing routine at the home as an excuse to confuse the child.

“There was specific targeting of a particularly vulnerable child.

“Not all children at the home were abused. He [the victim] was targeted because he was a vulnerable boy, isolated from his family.”

During his trial, jurors heard McSweeney was sexually motivated to watch children shower, and had a collection of child pornography.

He watched as his teenage victim was abused by Stingemore in the care home shower.

Sentencing him, Judge Alistair McCreath recognised there was no evidence to suggest the priest himself molested the child, but he had encouraged it.

He said: “He has a voyeuristic interest in children, either in seeing them unclothed, or in seeing them sexually abused by others.”

The judge added the priest had abused the position of trust that he was in, preying on the youngster at the care home where he should have been safe.

He acknowledged that McSweeney had been a “good and conscientious priest in almost all aspects of his calling”.

McSweeney was cleared of three indecent assaults on two other boys at the care home and taking a pornographic photo of one of these boys.

In 2012, McSweeney had been appointed as a director at Norwich’s Notre Dame High School, but resigned following his arrest in 2013.

Following McSweeney’s conviction, headteacher Brian Conway sent a letter to parents, students, staff and governors, saying the school was “saddened and shocked by the crimes”.

Anthony McSweeney case: Abuse priest failings found

Apr 23 2017

Concerns raised about a Catholic priest later jailed for sexual assault were not acted upon or taken seriously by the Church, a review has found.

Anthony McSweeney, 70, was jailed for three years in 2015 for abusing a boy at a west London care home.

In the wake of the case an independent review was commissioned by the Dioceses of Brentwood and East Anglia.

The review said McSweeney was found with videos of adolescent boys in 1998 but this was not reported to police.

The review revealed how McSweeney was moved in 1999 from the Diocese of Brentwood, where he served at Saint Luke’s in Harlow and at Saint Peter’s in Eastwood, to St George’s Parish, Norwich, which is part of the Diocese of East Anglia, after the tapes were discovered.

McSweeney’s abuse conviction related to indecent assault and making indecent images of children between 1979 and 1981.

He was investigated as part of a police probe into allegations of a paedophile ring at the Grafton Close Children’s Home in Hounslow.

In 1984, McSweeney was ordained at Ilford.


Key review findings

  • The Church should have taken more robust action following the discovery of video tapes in 1998 and should have ensured that the matter was reported to the police so that a full investigation could have taken place
  • Local priests and parishioners were not adequately supported, their concerns were not taken sufficiently seriously nor acted upon diligently
  • McSweeney’s transfer to East Anglia was poorly managed, lacked insight and was not adequately documented

His offending, as far as we know, goes back to the Seventies when, while training for the priesthood, he worked as a part-time carer at a local authority-run home for vulnerable boys in Grafton Close, Richmond-upon-Thames

He was given the job by the manager, his ‘good friend’ — and fellow predator — John Stingemore.

McSweeney was finally caught when, more than 30 years later, police launched an investigation into historic allegations that Grafton Close boys had been sent to Elm Guest House in nearby Barnes, to be sexually abused. 

The list of alleged abusers included Cabinet ministers and MPs, diplomats, spies, policemen, judges, pop stars and staff of the Royal Households

2004

Delia Smith, a devout Roman Catholic, met Father Tony McSweeney last year and convinced him to be the club’s part-time chaplain.

“I asked him if it could be possible we could hold mass, because I sometimes see a lot of our supporters in the Roman Catholic cathedral after the game,” said Smith.

“I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be lovely to have one in-house’. I am very much hoping that it is very well attended. I am hoping very much that any supporters and staff feel able to attend.

“The more people that come the better. If it is well attended we might be able to have it two or three times a season.”

Fr McSweeney added: “Several of the players who are Catholics had said there is no Catholic chaplain at the club. I said I wasn’t actually looking for work but I’d go ahead and do it anyway.

“The Church reaches out to lots of groups of people and I hope as many people as possible come along to this.”

It will be first time in Norwich’s 102-year history that the club has hosted a religious service, which is to be held in Smith’s Top Of The Terrace restaurant at the ground an hour after the game ends on Saturday.

The service is being conducted by Father Tony McSweeney, a Roman Catholic parish priest at St George’s, Sprowston Road, who is the third chaplain at the football club.

He knows both Malky Mackay and Paul McVeigh, who are regular worshippers in his parish. In fact the players helped to get him involved in the club together with Delia, who asked him to be a chaplain after she gave a lecture earlier this year at his church.

Fr McSweeney told the EDP: “I am reaching out to a different group of people, which is what the church likes to do. But we won’t be praying for failure or the downfall of the Canaries’ opponents – we like to leave it up to God.

“I myself always keep an eye on the results but I don’t have time to go to matches. However, my curate is a season ticket holder.”


McSweeney was booted out in disgrace. A few months later, the same Essex parishioner attended a conference for Catholic professionals, held in Norwich. The guest speaker was none other than Tony McSweeney. His subject? The joys of Scouting.

‘I could not believe what I was seeing,’ says the source.

McSweeney prospered in Norfolk. He became chaplain and governor of a school.

He rubbed shoulders with local celebrities — hence, presumably, his invitation from Delia Smith, the Catholic cookery writer, to say Mass at Norwich football club, where she and her husband are majority shareholders.

“Dee” (as she was then known) worked for Carlton Studios.

Smith became a recognisable figure amongst young people in the 1970s and early 1980s when she was an occasional guest on the BBC’s Saturday morning children’s programme Multicoloured Swap Shop and did basic cooking demonstrations; she and host Noel Edmonds had a flirtatious way of interacting with each other back then.

Father McSweeney, of St George’s Church in Norwich, held a service at the Premier League club in 2004 after they were promoted to the top flight.

A Norwich City spokesman today said: “In 2004, Father McSweeney wrote to joint majority shareholder Delia Smith suggesting he would like to become a Norwich City Chaplain.

“Subsequently the Club did agree he could help to hold a one-off multi-denominational service to celebrate their return to the Barclays Premier League. That service was duly held after our opening Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace in August, 2004.

Sir Jimmy Savile’s funeral

The Right Reverend Arthur Roche, the bishop of Leeds gave an eulogy for Savile and sang his praises

Addressing the congregation, the Right Rev Arthur Roche, Bishop of Leeds, said: “Today Jimmy lies at the front of the cathedral where in former years he has remained discreetly hidden at the back in order not to disturb people’s prayers or distract their attention from what was taking place at the altar.”

The service at the cathedral was also attended by former Conservative minister Lord Tebbit and boxer Frank Bruno.

Fr Neil Gallanagh, Bishop Roche & Savile

Catholic Church decided not to unfrock priest who abused deaf boys

A priest, Neil Gallanagh,  who admitted indecently assaulting deaf boys at a school in Yorkshire has been allowed to remain as a cleric, it can be revealed, as the scandal over abuse cover-ups in the Catholic Church moves to Britain.

The Rt Rev Arthur Roche, the Bishop of Leeds, sent letters to the Vatican asking for advice on what action should be taken against Fr Neil Gallanagh, after details of his offences emerged, but decided not to unfrock him.

Victims’ support groups said that the Catholic Church’s failure to pursue the toughest possible course of action against Gallanagh seriously undermined its attempts to send a clear statement that priests guilty of abuse have been properly punished.

The disclosure comes as Pope Benedict XVI finds himself embroiled in new revelations over child sex abuse, following the emergence of a letter signed by him in 1985, before he became Pope, resisting the unfrocking of Stephen Kiesle, a US priest who had been convicted of offences against young boys.

The letter, signed by then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, was typed in Latin and is part of years of correspondence between the diocese of Oakland, in the US, and the Vatican about the proposed unfrocking of Kiesle, sentenced to three years of probation in 1978 for lewd conduct with two young boys in San Francisco.

In the letter, Cardinal Ratzinger – who was at the time the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which has responsibility for tackling abuse by clerics – said the “good of the universal Church” needed to be considered in any unfrocking. He also urged “as much paternal care as possible” for Kiesle.

Kiesle was ultimately unfrocked in 1987. In 2004, he was sentenced to six years in prison after admitting molesting a young girl in 1995.

Now aged 63, he is on the registered sex offenders list in California. The Vatican says he was exercising due caution before sacking the priest.

Last month it was claimed that while he was a Cardinal in the 1990s, the current Pope also took a lenient approach towards another American priest who was suspected of having molested as many as 200 boys at a school for the deaf.

The Vatican has insisted that the Pope was never involved in blocking the removal of paedophile priests during his two decades as head of the Catholic Church’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

He held the position prior to becoming Pope in 2005.

The decision not to unfrock Gallanagh, who also abused children at deaf school, is likely to prove embarrassing for the Catholic Church in England and Wales, which has up until now escaped from being dragged into the crisis that has engulfed the Catholic church in several countries over the past year.

Gallanagh abused boys while working as the chaplain of St John’s School for the Deaf in Boston Spa, West Yorkshire, in the 1970s. The abuse first came to light in 2002, by which time he was working as a parish priest in Horsforth, Leeds.

In 2005, by then 75 and retired, Gallanagh pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting two teenage pupils at the school. He was given a six-month suspended sentence and a further 11 charges involving boys as young as 11 were left on file.

However, he escaped being unfrocked – or laicised – following Bishop Roche’s decision that it would be sufficient to stop him from exercising his ministry.

“He is not in good standing with the Church as a priest,” said John Grady, the bishop’s spokesman.

“He is not allowed to exercise ministry of any kind. He has observed these restrictions to the letter.”

The diocese did not refer the case to the Vatican until 2007, according to Mr Grady, by which time Benedict XVI was Pope.

“When the Neil Gallanagh case was sent to Rome, the diocese did not ask for laicisation,” Mr Grady said.

“Bishop Roche took the view that Neil had had his faculties removed at the time of the disclosure – he had not acted as a priest or worn priest’s dress – and still does not.”

Gallanagh, who currently lives in a flat “under the observance of the church” and has been financially supported by the Church with a retirement grant, was moved to the school in 1973 despite having been fined for assaulting a nine-year-old boy 13 years earlier on the Isle of Man, while he was a priest in Northern Ireland.

At the time of the 1973 offence he told police “it was a horrible thing to do”, adding: “I have been worried with this sexual trouble for some time and recently it has become an obsession with me.”

Margaret Kennedy, founder of Minister and Clergy Sexual Abuse Survivors (MACSAS), a support group, said that the Church had not gone far enough in punishing Gallanagh.

“Defrocking him would send out a statement that he’s not fit to be a priest,” she said.

“He should not be left with this honour. By not defrocking him it says that he is still a man of God and that is clearly not the case.

“It’s insulting to the victims who have suffered that he has been allowed to remain as a priest.”

The disclosure that Gallanagh has been allowed to remain as a priest comes after Archbishop Nichols recently cited the ability to defrock priests as one of the key changes Pope Benedict had introduced to protect children.

“He pushed forward, for example, a fast-track to defrock priests who have committed abuse,” the Archbishop said. “He changed the statute of limitations in Church law.”

Kevin Walton, who was abused as a boy at the school, said he was shocked to hear that Fr Gallanagh has been allowed to remain a priest.

“He was known to have abused before in Ireland, then to Boston Spa with vulnerable Deaf boys,” he said.

“The church has not acted strongly enough at all, too many silences, brushing under carpet, not saying any more about it, as if they hope things will quieten down.”

2.35 – Tom Watson / PMQs / D-Notice / Leon Brittan / Harvey Proctor
[CHRIS] the one interesting thing above all else, when Tom Watson asked a question in the House of Commons recently, as you know

[BILL] Member of Parliament

[CHRIS] Member of Parliament, he also asked about the use of D-Notices. D-Notices are notices that they’re supposed to be advisory, but basically the government doesn’t like a story in the newspapers about to print, it’ll slap a D-Notice

[BILL] A D-Notice is a gagging order

[CHRIS] is a gagging order. Now when Mary Moss and I left the coroner’s court the entire world’s press was outside, obviously it was a very, very big story

[BILL] Absolutely

[CHRIS] Because we’d stood in the witness box, we’d named Leon Brittan we’d named Harvey Proctor, we’d told the inquest all the evidence we had about who’d been involved at the Elm Guest House, so by any stretch of the imagination it was big news story. When we got outside the coroner’s court there was, they were all there, BBC, ITV, Channel Four, Sky, you name it.

[BILL] Yeah

18.15 – Eric Kasir / Neil Kier / Carol Kasir
[CHRIS] I knew who to complain to, how the system worked. Now, when the police, because they thought, they knew that Carol Kasir’s son, Eric, was 10, was living there. They also suspected and their own words ‘that other children might be present’ they approached Richmond Services, told them about the raid. Now procedure dictates that normally you would have got, say, the local field social worker in the local office who would have come in with the police on the raid. Any children present, they would have taken, they would have taken them into care. However, on the day of the raid, the man from Kingston, err from Richmond Council, who, who was on the raid with the police was Neil Kier, the officer in charge of Grafton, who took Eric into care.

[BILL] That’s her son Eric?

[CHRIS] That’s her son Eric. So you can understand why Carol was so angry.

[BILL] So, so, she knew, she knew that all the kids were coming from this children’s home. Then what they done on the night of the raid was took her own child and put her own child in that children’s home.

[CHRIS] Not only that, but with the very guy who had been one of the people supplying the boys, so Carol knew full well what that meant.

Top Tory Leon Brittan ‘photographed entering underage sex den during police investigation’

The former MP for Cleveland and Whitby is said to have been snapped by officers on a 1986 surveillance operation focusing on rent boy orgies

24 JAN 2015

Leon Brittan was photographed entering an underage sex den during a police investigation, it has been claimed.

The Tory Lord, who died on Wednesday, is said to have been snapped by officers on a 1986 surveillance operation focusing on rent boy orgies run in North London buildings.

Detectives were watching premises where the boys picked up at King’s Cross were dropped off to be repeatedly raped, say friends of an officer involved.

Big names believed to have been photographed entering the dens included former Home Secretary Brittan, MP Cyril Smith and some top judges.

Sources claim up to 16 high profile figures were due to be arrested.

But the day before the swoops were to be carried out, officers on the investigation, called Operation Orchid, were allegedly told it had been disbanded.

Our sources say it is unclear what happened to the photographs or why the raid was called off.

A friend of the officer on the investigation said: “The rent boys would be driven to flats or garages where large groups of men were waiting.

“These included Brittan and Smith. Pictures were taken as men entered or left buildings where the abuse was taking place.”

The revelations emerge as ­Brittan’s name is dragged ever deeper into the growing scandal over an alleged cover-up into sex abusers at the highest level of the Establishment in the 1970s
and 80s.

His old friends and colleagues have defended his legacy and called on his accusers to put up evidence or “shut up”.

But a major police investigation into VIP paedophile rings, which includes testimony against Brittan, continues.

And a number of witnesses and victims have provided statements to police.

One key witness known as Nick, who has been described by police as “credible”, has told officers he was abused by Brittan at the luxury Dolphin Square apartment complex, near Westminster.

He gave a lengthy statement alleging three boys were murdered by the VIP paedophiles.

Speaking before Brittan’s death, Nick said: “He would treat me like I was not even human.”

He claimed the top Tory was “nasty, cruel, sadistic and hateful”.

Nick is now said to be ­“devastated” by the former cabinet minister’s death and fears it may be too late to get justice.

Brittan, who died of cancer at 75, was already under investigation for allegedly raping a woman in 1967. An allegation he denied.

Scotland Yard says this will continue despite his death.

Brittan’s name also appears on a web list of purported visitors to Elm Guest House, near Barnes Common in South West London.

The B&B is said to have operated as a gay and underage brothel in the early 1980s and is at the centre of a huge historic abuse police ­investigation called Operation ­Fernbridge.

The Metropolitan Police has refused to discuss any potential suspects in this investigation.

Last year Brittan became mired in the historical sexual abuse scandal after claims that he was handed a dossier containing details of the abuse allegations in the 1980s.

He was accused of failing to act on the evidence passed to him by Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens in 1983.

While he admitted he had met Mr Dickens and had been handed a file, he said he had passed it on to officials and was not contacted about the issue again.

Brittan was elected as MP for Cleveland and Whitby in 1974 and then for ­Richmond, Yorks, in 1983.

PM David Cameron led the ­tributes to him last week, describing the former cabinet minister and European competition ­commissioner as a “dedicated and fiercely intelligent public servant”.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said yesterday: “We do not comment on ongoing enquiries.”

VAZ PIMP AID PROBE

Police reportedly investigating claims Keith Vaz threatened council worker who tried to evict a rent boy pimp

12 Sept 2016

Shamed Labour MP Keith Vaz allegedly told housing chief he would make his life ‘impossible’ unless pimp was allowed to keep his home – despite not paying £1,400 rent

The disgraced Labour MP intervened when gay brothel owner Nigel Philpot-Jones was booted out of his Leicester council flat 25 years ago for rent arrears.

Ex-councillor Paul Gosling told The Sun he was quizzed by police in March about the MP’s behaviour in the early 1990s.

He said: “On many occasions Keith Vaz interfered with the running of the council in ways that breached his responsibilities as an MP.

“In particular I was unhappy about his involvement in reversing the decision to evict Nigel Philpot Jones, who had not paid his rent and was also operating a gay brothel in breach of the council’s clear rules on tenancy.

Vaz had been brought into the eviction row by his friend Philip Taylor, son of a former mayor of Leicester and himself homosexual. Mr Taylor was also a friend of Philpot-Jones.

Devastating questions Labour’s Tom Watson must answer… not least, why does he only brand TORIES as child sex abusers?

Accusing the Tories: Deputy Labour leader Tom Watson at the party's conference last month
2015

On April 21, Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson was asked to join 11 other prominent MPs signing an open letter that called for a high-profile member of the Establishment accused of appalling child sex abuse to face justice.

Due to be published in the next day’s newspapers, it claimed that a recent decision not to prosecute the man — on the grounds that he was suffering from dementia — bore all the hallmarks of a ‘whitewash’.

‘The public are horrified,’ the letter declared. ‘Powerful people, including MPs, have previously avoided facing justice for serious crimes committed against children. As long as justice is not seen to be done . . . the greater public interest is not served.’

On the face of things, Watson — then a mere backbencher — should have heartily agreed with this sentiment.

For 18 months, the MP had been making near-identical pronouncements while trying to expose what he had famously described as ‘a powerful paedophile network linked to Parliament and No 10’.

Strangely, given this tub-thumping track record, Watson refused to put his name to the open letter of April 21.

One of their number says: ‘He was called, texted and emailed but we got no reply, so reluctantly concluded that this was one particular child sex case Tom didn’t want to make waves about.’

Tom Watson given £500k in donations by Max Mosley in past year

Register of MPs’ interests shows that former Formula One boss gave money to support Watson’s office as deputy leader and shadow culture secretary

“I’m proud to call Max Mosley a friend and I’m delighted he has made a financial contribution to Labour,” Watson said. “

Prostitute in Max Mosley ‘Nazi’ dungeon orgy was wife of MI5 officer

2008

An MI5 agent has been forced to resign after it was revealed his wife took part in a Nazi-style sex orgy with Formula One boss Max Mosley

The wife of an MI5 agent was one of the five prostitutes who took part in a ‘Nazi- style’ orgy with motor racing chief Max Mosley.

It left MI5 facing questions last night over whether one of its officers had helped set up the sting which saw a lurid five-hour video of the sado-masochistic sex session sold to a newspaper.

The agent was forced to resign when the activities of his 38-year-old wife – who used the name Mistress Abi – were revealed.

Security sources dismissed any suggestion that the surveillance officer was involved in the secret filming in a ‘torture dungeon’ at a £2million flat in Chelsea and insisted he was unaware of it until after the story appeared in the newspapers.

It is understood that officers will investigate the relationship between Nick and the Exaro website, which was first to publish his allegations before it closed in July.

Richard Kerr And Mark Watts – And Why One Journalist Left Exaro News

…Another reason for writing this is that I believe it demonstrates that often media outlets, not just Exaro News, may publish material that may not be in the interests of the survivor they have talked to. There is also the danger, especially in this post-Panorama period, that any survivor who may have had dealings with Exaro may become contaminated by association and more generally this may happen to any survivor making allegations regardless of whether they’ve talked to Exaro, or indeed any media outlet and that, I feel, would be a crying shame.

untitled

Following the publication 0f the story Richard Kerr was naturally very upset. He’d been taken by surprise when the five photographs of individuals had been produced during the interview, he’s an obliging gentleman and attempted to help the interviewer but directly after the interview, recognising that he couldn’t be 100% certain that he had correctly identified all of the men in the photographs, or if he had recognised them, from other sources. Of the 5 men that Richard identified he was certain that he’d met of two of them but of the other three he was uncertain. He  he had immediately requested that this part would not be made public.  Richard Kerr knows too just how much such a mis-identification, once public, can harm the credibility of a survivor (even one like himself who can demonstrate his abuse very clearly).

However, despite requesting that the VIPs he had named under these pressurised circumstances be removed, it was never done and they remained on the Exaro News website until the day the site recently disappeared.

More on Exaro & Watts

Jonathan S‏ @majorleak2017

At the point when Exaro started publishing the VIP allegations it was a financial news based outlet. It has always been a question

WHY did … Tom Watson conveniently ‘choose’ Exaro as the outlet of choice?

The underlying motivation as to ‘Why choose Exaro at that time?’ is going to be an issue which needs to be resolved going forwards.

Some have speculated the link between the Labour Party and Exaro’s directors was the underlying motivation

“Exaro Holdings is 100% owner of ExaroNews which is the first commercial website dedicated to investigative journalism”
So why did it’s director Watts sue for wrongful dismissal when he knew the money wasn’t there to compensate?

So why did it’s director Watts not resign his directorship of Exaro Holdings when he was sacked as ’employee’?

As a sacked ’employee’ and STILL a director he had a clear conflict of interest. A conflict of interest that is part of the legal framework around directors’ responsibilities. It does not make sense that a sacked employee can remain a director.
ACTIVE director Mark Watts. Company in liquidation. Sacked as employee. Still a director.
Exaro Holdings 100% (from Pendry’s own words) owner of Exaro News. Watts sacked from subsidiary company. Watts STILL a director of parent.
So the questions remain: why is Mark Watts STILL a director of a parent company from which he was sacked as an employee?
Why did Mark Watts sue for wrongful dismissal and allegedly be awarded compensation when he KNEW as director there was no money?
Did Watts waste public time and money by that wrongful dismissal claim? Did Watts have a massive conflict of interest with directorship?

Tim Pendry, a Left-leaning PR man and friend of Jeremy Corbyn.

Last month, Pendry announced that he would rejoin the Labour Party, saying his decision ‘was helped by the estimable old Labour Right-winger Tom Watson being elected as ballast, as deputy leader’.

Exaro’s editor-in-chief, Mark Watts, is also an admirer and friend of Watson.

He once hosted a daily news show on a Left-wing channel called Press TV. Controlled by the government of Iran, Press TV, which has employed Left-wing firebrand George Galloway, was where Corbyn described the killing of Osama Bin Laden as ‘a tragedy’.

Watson and Watts (who is today expected to appear with Galloway on Kremlin-controlled Russia Today) have certainly been useful to one another.

The MP first began publicly campaigning about an ‘Establishment’ paedophile ring in 2012. At about the same time, Exaro began focusing heavily on stories about the same purported ring.

Ever since, Watson has made regular appearances in Exaro’s news reports. As a senior MP, his comments lend credibility to their reports. In turn, they help to promote Watson’s campaign.

Little wonder, perhaps, that in the past 18 months Watson has almost continually flagged Exaro stories on Twitter. His support is doubtless very helpful. In November, for example, Watson tweeted: ‘I’ve spent all week telling reporters to phone Exaro if they want to know what’s going on.’

This relationship does not please everyone, however. Peter McKelvie, a former child protection officer who once worked closely with the Labour MP, has severed ties because he regards Exaro as ‘a disgrace to journalism’.

McKelvie is also said to believe that Watson fails to adopt a sufficiently collegiate attitude to his campaign, an opinion shared by one MP who has previously collaborated with him on child protection issues.

‘There have also been other times Tom has not pulled his weight, and I’m not just talking about the Janner letter,’ says the MP.

‘There was, for example, a debate in Parliament on historical child sex abuse last November. Everyone interested in the issue attended, apart from Tom. Perhaps he didn’t want to share the limelight.’

A Jim’ll Fix It badge presented to Holyhead by paedophile TV star Jimmy Savile is to be destroyed.

The badge was the biggest ever one created, given to the entire town after local man Jeff Evans – now a councillor – contacted the show to ask if Jimmy Savile could cheer the place up after a Christmas flu bug ruined the festive season of 1990.

Savile sent Hi Di Hi! star Ruth Madoc and boxing legend Frank Bruno to the town an recreated Christmas for the day, with thousands of people turning out to take part in what culminated in the laptop-sized badge being awarded.

The Daily Post has learned that the badge has been in storage for some time, and since it emerged that Savile was a notorious child molester, discussions have been underway about what to do with the now tainted emblem.

It’s been a busy week for Keith Vaz, first accused of abusing his position and now embroiled in another mysterious scandal over his election expenses. His local paper report that Vaz spent £100 to use the premises on Uppingham Road, Leicester – his own taxpayer-funded constituency office. Vaz’s election agent Piara Singh Clair explains: “we did it because we needed a room and it would have been expensive to hire another one. It was a nominal sum”, bizarrely adding that no money had actually changed hands despite it being declared as an expense. If no money was actually spent, why was it falsely declared to the Electoral Commission? Curiouser and curiouser…

Investigation: Pupils taught in huts as head pockets £400,000

A headteacher who faces the sack over allegations that he received unlawful bonuses took home more than £400,000 in a year — four times his official salary — the Standard can reveal.

 

Sir Alan Davies

An auditor’s report alleges Sir Alan Davies was part of a culture of nepotism and rewards that saw staff take home at least £1.6 million in bonuses and other extra payments.

Sir Alan, head of 1,900-pupil Copland Community College in Wembley, received “what appear to be unlawful and irrational payments” from funds that should have been spent on education, according to Brent council’s confidential investigation. A copy of the investigator’s initial findings, seen by the Standard, alleges:

At least 10 senior staff — and Sir Alan’s caretaker son — received rewards under the school’s “sharing in success” bonus policy.

Sir Alan took home £403,278 last year but his basic salary was £103,000.

The bonuses were approved by the school’s chairman of governors, Dr Indravadan Purshottamdas Patel.

The full amount of bonuses has not yet been calculated, but the total extra payments known so far is £1,565,700.

Last week, Sir Alan, his deputy Dr Richard Evans and bursar Columbus Udokoro were suspended over allegations that the bonus scheme broke the law. Children’s Secretary Ed Balls said he was “extremely disturbed” by the payments.

But the investigator’s findings revealed the scale of the payments was far greater than originally feared.

As a foundation school Copland has more control over its own budget and assets than a community comprehensive run by the council. Ministers want more schools to become foundation trusts, with powers to run their own affairs. But while Sir Alan and his colleagues benefited from bonuses, the school’s buildings fell into disrepair.

In 2006, inspectors warned the rundown classrooms were undermining pupils’ education. A shanty-town of temporary huts now stands where a new sixth-form block should be, while the humanities department had to cope with a major sewage leak. History teacher Shane Johnschwager, NASUWT union representative, said: “If the kids were cattle the authorities would have closed us down. My room has been painted once — by me, in the school holidays with paint I paid for.

“I have holes in the wall, a broken desk, old furniture, no interactive whiteboard, broken blinds, a flaking ceiling. Other rooms are worse.”

The school has been earmarked for redevelopment for six years. Under the plans, a £120 million “village” will include new school buildings, two gyms, a pool and floodlit all-weather pitch, plus 453 flats and shops.

But the development, overseen by Sir Alan, has setbacks. The school racked up a £1 million debt to a property firm when an earlier deal broke down.

Yet, according to the Brent council investigation, Sir Alan was given rewards of £231,000 in the past two years alone for project managing the development, on top of his basic salary. Dr Patel claimed Sir Alan deserved “every penny”.

The scale of the bonus culture emerged at a meeting on 29 April between Sir Alan and Brent’s chief investigator, Simon Lane. When pressed by Mr Lane Sir Alan “could not recall” why he had received one payment of £12,500 last year “and said he would have to check”.

He was not alone in receiving “substantial” extra payments. According to the auditor’s report, Sir Alan, his son Gareth, Dr Evans and Mr Udokoro shared £458,000 for project management relating to the new development between 2007 and 2009.

In addition Sir Alan, three deputy heads and a number of other staff, including his son, received “significant bonus payments in 2007-08 and earlier years”, the auditor found. These known bonus payments — which are bound to be a fraction of the total handed out — amount to a further £865,200.

The report said Sir Alan “could not explain” exactly why he received such bonuses, adding: “Either he or the chair (of governors) put down some ideas as to what they thought the staff should be paid. These were then checked with Dr Evans to see if they were affordable. Then the amounts were taken to the Pay Review Committee where they were approved.”

The council said there were “numerous additional payments of significant amounts” to senior staff and others at the school. Sir Alan insisted that Dr Patel had approved the payments in conjunction with the school’s pay committee, and that a budget for bonuses had been properly drawn up.

The investigators disagreed. The report said: “The council believes there to be no lawful and/or rational basis for the payment of these sums.”

The final area of concern raised by investigators was the apparently widespread nepotism. The headteacher’s son, son-in-law and sister were all employed. The wife and mother of the deputy head of finance were given jobs, along with the accountant’s brother, the son and daughter of the assistant accountant and the nephew’s wife of the chair of governors.

“In some cases salaries paid to these members of staff appear excessive,” the report said. “This tends to indicate that certain members of staff may not have been appointed on merit alone.”

Last week the borough’s director of children’s services John Christie invoked rarely used powers to suspend Sir Alan, Dr Evans and Mr Udokoro, and gave the governors three weeks to explain themselves or face the sack.

In a letter to governors, Mr Christie said: “Funds which should have been used for the proper purposes of the school have been spent on what appear to be unlawful and irrational payments to staff.” The school seems to have incurred a £1 million “financial liability to a development firm”, he said.

Teacher Hank Roberts, who exposed the payments last month, called for police to be brought in. Mr Roberts said he believed he had made enemies by his actions.

He was suspended by Sir Alan over an unrelated matter. The day after Sir Alan’s suspension, Mr Roberts was reinstated.

Brent council said its inquiry into the allegations against Copland was ongoing. Sir Alan was not available for comment last night. Mr Udokoro today said he was prevented from making any comment under the terms of his suspension, but last week rejected any suggestion of wrongdoing.

Dr Patel could not be reached last night but has defended the decision to award bonuses. Gareth Davies said today he was prevented from making any comments until the inquiry had been completed.

Philip O’Hear, Copland’s acting headteacher, said the school was “shocked” by what had happened.

The allegations

Sir Alan Davies, headteacher: suspended.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other payments of £631,500.

Dr Richard Evans, deputy head: suspended.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other extra payments of £341,000.

Columbus Udokoro, bursar: suspended.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other extra payments of £72,000.

Gareth Davies, maintenance staff: still working.
Allegedly received unlawful bonuses and other payments of £38,000.

The council says there were many other payments.

Sir Alan Davies outside Copland with David Cameron

Both Sir Alan Davies and Dr Evans have been lauded for their work in the state education system with Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron all visiting their former school.

 

Dr Evans, 53, is a former education adviser to Mr Cameron and a former Westminster councillor who twice stood as a Tory candidate.

All three are accused of defrauding Copland community school in Wembley, North West London, following allegations that payments totalling at least £1.56million were made to Sir Alan and three of his managers over a period of seven years.

Mrs Evans, 50, has also been accused of selling at Sotheby’s around 15 paintings, worth many thousands, that had been given to the school by British artist Mary Fedden, who taught David Hockney.

Davies is also accused of one count of laundering £270,490 by transferring the sum from a NatWest bank account in England to a Spanish bank account in March 2008.

He is further charged with six counts of false accounting, said to have taken place between April 2007 and June 2009 – part of his alleged efforts to ‘cover up his activities’.

 

Head teacher Sir Alan Davies avoids jail over fraud

  • 3 October 2013

An “inspirational” head teacher has been given a suspended prison sentence after admitting false accounting.

Sir Alan Davies, 66, of Grants Close, the former head at Wembley’s Copland School, in north London, pleaded guilty to creating a false paper trail on bonus payments and allowances.

Davies, knighted for his services to education, resigned in 2009.

At Southwark Crown Court, Judge Deborah Taylor said: “Your dishonest behaviour represents a fall from grace.”

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-24383163

‘Honest payments’

It had been claimed that Davies paid himself, three staff members and two governors a total of £2.7m over several years through bonuses and salaries.

But charges of conspiracy to defraud against Davies and five others relating to that alleged plot were dropped.

Instead Davies pleaded guilty to six counts of false accounting after he admitted creating eight back-payment documents at the same time, for sums totalling £315,000.

Defending Davies, William Clegg QC, told the court he was an “inspirational” teacher and the offences needed to be taken in context.

He said: “This is not a case of documents being forged to permit payments to be made that were unlawful and not agreed or made dishonestly. The position is the opposite.

“The payments were honestly made and honestly received. This is not somebody seeking to obtain money he was not entitled to.”

‘Profound error’

Prosecutor John Black QC added there was no dishonesty in the making or receiving of the payments.

He said: “The dishonesty relates to false paper trails in order to legitimise these payments.

“The Crown say they [paperwork backing up payments] were all generated at the same time, after Sir Alan Davies had become aware of the impending or likely scrutiny, to give the impression the right procedure was being adhered to.”

A charge of money laundering against Davies was also dropped.

Following the case, Davies said: “In some instances I have felt that we were being tried by the media and there were a lot of misrepresentations made in the press, many of which were wholly unfounded.

“I do, however, have to accept that I did not have all the necessary paperwork in place and I made a profound error of judgment by backdating eight documents.”

In a statement, Brent Council, said: “The council will always act robustly and take action where allegations of financial irregularities have been made, to investigate and pursue legal action.

“In this case the guilty plea of false accounting vindicates the actions taken although we are disappointed the Crown Prosecution Service saw fit not to pursue the conspiracy to defraud.”

Ex-Copland School teacher Dr Richard Evans lands job at Mill Hill County High School

Dr Richard Evans
 16 Sep 2010

A MATHS teacher fired for “gross misconduct” from a Wembley school amid allegations of a £1.6m fraud is now teaching at a top Mill Hill school.

Arkley resident Dr Richard Evans lost his job at Copland Community School in November after allegations he pocketed £300,000 in bonuses in his role as deputy head in charge of finance.

Scotland Yard’s fraud squad has now launched an investigation into the financial dealings at the school.

However, in January, Dr Evans was taken on at Mill Hill County High School as a temporary member of staff and given a permanent position in April.

A statement from Geoffrey Thompson, the headmaster of the Worcester Crescent School, said Dr Evans had been appointed after a consultation with the General Teaching Council.

He added: “He was given a permanent position as a maths teacher in April. Dr Evans is a highly qualified maths teacher and has proved himself a popular and valued member of our school community.

“I do not believe there are any grounds for parental concern. There never has been any question about Dr Evans’s suitability to work with children.

“The circumstances which led to Dr Evans’s departure from his previous post had no connection whatsoever with his teaching. He has demonstrated he has been an excellent maths teacher during his time at Mill Hill County High School.”

An investigation by Brent Council into the dealings at Copland, which ended with four of the senior management team suspended, found evidence of “serious financial mismanagement” at the school.

Shane Johnschwager, a staff member at Copland School and Brent secretary for teacher’s union NASUWT was outraged by the appointment.

He told the Times Series: “Richard Evans will have to answer to his professional body and possibly to the courts.

“What will Geoffrey Thompson say to pupils and parents at Mill Hill County if he is struck off or charged with a criminal offence?

“Will he stake his reputation on this appointment? Mill Hill is a school with an excellent reputation. Is this the best Geoffrey Thompson can do in recruiting staff to the school – a disgraced and recently sacked teacher embroiled in Britain’s largest ever educational financial scandal?”

http://www.times-series.co.uk/news/8392834.Sacked_controversial_teacher_given_job_at_top_school/


QUESTIONS:

  1. I’d like to ask Dr Evans why the other 15 paintings were sold at auction?
  2. Did he have proof they were his when he sold them through Sotheby’s?
  3. Were the proceeds given to the school or kept by Dr Evans?
  4. Why is this issue still ongoing EIGHT YEARS after it first emerged?
  5. Why have the three remaining paintings not been returned to the school by Brent Council?
  6. Did Keir Starmer involve himself in the legal process of the fraud case?
  7. Why were charges dropped against all other defendants despite an indepth and lengthy FOUR YEAR investigation?
  8. Is Dr Patel really the ideal choice to be a trustee of a charity despite admitting inappropriate payments at Copland School?
  9. Did Brent Council ever recover the £2.7m?
  10. Did any of them consider the knock-on effect this would have on the school and the children who found themselves under such a horrible cloud?

Did you know that each summer Keith Vaz holds an ‘Annual Tea Party’ in Westminster?

CLAUDIO RANIERI ATTENDS ANNUAL TEA PARTY AT THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

Leicester East MP Keith Vaz hosted his 29th annual tea party at the House of Commons on Saturday 9th July. His guest of honour this year was Leicester City Football Club Manager Claudio Ranieri and his wife Rosanna. LCFC Chief Executive Susan Whelan and her husband Robbie Gill also attended.

For the past 28 years Mr Vaz has been holding summer tea parties for all of his family, staff and special guests.

Saturday’s event was a celebration of Leicester City’s tremendous victory, and as well as getting to meet Leicester City’s manager, Mr Vaz and his guests got to see the Premier League Trophy.

Before the tea party Mr Ranieri, Ms Whelan and their families toured Number 10, with the permission of the Prime Minister.

The 85 party guests got to enjoy the sunshine on the House of Commons terrace, overlooking the River Thames with tea, sandwiches and cake. Guests could also help raise money for Silver Star, the diabetes charity Mr Vaz founded in 2007, by taking part in a raffle.

Prizes for the raffle included House of Commons whiskey and chocolate and a giant teddy bear.

Bercow, Vaz and Farter Cuck

 

Vaz appears to have engaged solicitors Carter Ruck in an effort to keep people quiet, according to Guido Fawkes, spreading “letters before action” around like confetti. HT   Government Watch [13]

guidoconfetti

I am not sure whether Bercow is using Carter Ruck as well or has employed another firm of solicitors, but this Times article is marked that it is subject to a legal complaint by Mr Bercow.

2017 Feb 11 Times Bercow blocked Vaz revelations after accepting poll donations [2] 

bercowlegal

The article revealed that Bercow had blocked revelations about Keith Vaz, and that Bercow had accepted many donations from friends of Vaz.

Telegraph Vaz Bercow Story Disappears:

Wonder why the Telegraph have pulled this story on John Bercow and Keith Vas?

KEITH VAZ sets lawyers on yet his wife says he needs tests and DID shag the rent boys.

the wife of KEITH VAZ says he needs tests cos he DID shag the rent boys

So just who IS telling the truth – Carter Ruck or Keith Vaz’s wife? It would be terrible if lawyers weren’t truthful in court.. under oath..

maybe someone should have another look at the FIFTEEN YEAR relationship KEITH VAZ had with this man

Petitions, Pinheads, Police and Vaz

On the excellent Aangirfan site, on an unrelated post, I came across this anonymous comment from November 2016 [1a]

It was about a petition to Keith Vaz’s Labour East constituency calling them to investigate the serious allegations against Keith Vaz.

vazpetition

Regular readers of this site will know that allegations that the Sun [2] printed were of child sexual abuse with boys.

sunvazAccording to the Sun the MP

  • had  lads “delivered” to his room at a hotel near a police station
  • abused boys at a hospital’s mental health unit
  • left one so terrified he fears for his life if he ever speaks out
  • showed an “unhealthy” interest in the two young sons of a local councillor
  • displayed a liking for “young ragamuffins”,
  • was seen as untouchable by police because of his revered
    position.

Guido Fawkes published that the MP was Keith Vaz [5]

fawkes

Why does Keith Vaz, often keen to “get the party started” not seem so keen to start the legal party against Guido Fawkes or the Sun on Sunday team?

The parliamentary commissioner is still conducting an investigation into whether Vaz has broken Section 10 of the Code of Conduct for MPs.

It is not known whether the conflict of interest being investigated by the parliamentary commissioner is the possible breaking of the Code of Conduct of MPs

  • with sex, drugs and washing machine allegations
  • the conflict of a police investigation into child sexual abuse allegations and his role on committees [5]

It is not known whether all police investigations into Keith Vaz have finished, but the sex, drugs and washing machine ones have finished, with no action taken.

However, the point of this post is that the petition has disappeared. From the comment, the petition text appeared to be –

“The Leicester East Constituency Labour Party must make enquiries into the serious allegations by the MP for Leicester East, Keith Vaz. Your enquiries should principally involve talking to the Sun on Sunday Journalists David Wooding and Michael Hamilton and Sun on Sunday Columnist Paul Staines to find out what their evidence is.”

It is not known whether this was the full text of the petition.

If you click the link [4] It says “This petition isn’t available. Either the URL is incorrect, it violated our Community Guidelines, or the starter removed it.”

Yet it seems such a reasonable, innocuous petition so why would it violate any guidelines or why would the originator take it down?

Does anyone know –

  • What was the full text of the petition?
  • What happened to it?
  • Who started it?
  • Why it was taken down?
  • When it was taken down?
  • Who took it down?
  • Have Leicester East Labour Party investigated the serious allegations?

One thing is for sure the people of Leicestershire and Labour in Leicestershire, who also had Janner, child sexual abuser as an MP must be getting fed up of this bad publicity.

Hopefully they are doing something about it and start asking Vaz a few questions.

Meanwhile, since this article was under construction, Vaz has set the record straight through his solicitors about some of his time selling washing machines.

In the last 24 hours,the Order Order website has published an article about Carter Ruck, expensive solicitors, who say their client, Keith Vaz

  • has never paid “rent boys for sex”
  • never had “sex” with “rent boys”.
  • there was never a police investigation in relation to this

One has to wonder if their client is the same Keith Vaz??

Carter Ruck are of course paid handsomely for dancing on pinheads.

..and Tesco must be wondering why Keith Vaz had to pose for a picture near their store or have they started a line in industrial washing machines?

vazrentboysue2vazrentboysue

  • I wonder what Vaz’s defence actually is?
  • I wonder how Carter Ruck know for sure that their client has never paid “rent boys for sex” or “sex” with “rent boys”? (It conjures up the mental image of one of Carter Rucks flunkies accompanying Vaz/Jim on his nocturnal visits and checking whether the people concerned can be excluded from the definition of  “rent boy”. ID card please! )
  • I wonder if the fact that Carter Ruck say he has not paid for or had sex with rent boys is enough plausible deniability and bluster to appear to be a denial from Vaz whilst actually being from a third party. This would scare a few people off commenting, and maybe enough enough to come to a quid pro quo with the Mail, which has the appearance of a denial. When solicitors make these threats, it is very rare for one to actually sign the letter and be responsible for that threat.

The  Mail article is mostly about Vaz’s gatekeeper chum John Bercow accepting freebies – 2017 Feb 8 Mail Andrew Pierce [9] Chauffeur-driven cars, taxpayer-funded suits and hospitality at the tennis and Arsenal matches: How the king of freebies John Bercow splashes your cash

The last paragraph however mentioned Vaz.

vazrentboymailThe article published on the 8th Feb, does say it has been updated on 13th Feb. This however appears to be unrelated to the Carter Ruck threat, as the only sentence that has changed on this paragraph from a print edition copy, is the removal of “The charity gave £2,500 to Bercow’s Speaker’s election campaign in 2010” with reference to the Silver Star diabetes charity.

Whatever the truth the original articles are here Mirror Married MP Keith Vaz tells prostitutes in his flat: ‘Bring poppers’ … ‘We need to get this party started’ [12] 

mirror-vazSo game on between Vaz and the Daily Mail or will they come to some agreement out of mutual self interest?

Interestingly on the Carter Ruck website, the rolling self congratulatory advert attributes these comments to the Mail “Top London Law Firm” and “Famously Combative”.  We shall see.

I cannot see Jim washing his very dirty laundry in public.

But who will blink first Lord Rothermere or Carter Ruck?

Taylor, son of the MAYOR was MATES with Nigel Philpott-Jones + was NOT suprised allegs of rent boys came out re KEITH VAZ 2016

Speaker accused of pulling punches on Keith Vaz probe

The Speaker last night denied blocking an attempt to tell Parliament about police investigations into Keith Vaz because he had received thousands from donors linked to the MP.

Records show that £41,000 of the £58,000 raised for John Bercow’s last two general election campaigns came from people with connections to Mr Vaz.

Yesterday Mr Bercow insisted he had handled all matters involving Mr Vaz in line with parliamentary rules and strongly refuted any suggestion he had unfairly favoured the Leicester East MP.

IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE ME? Bercow was presented with a wooden bust of himself by former Labour councillor Neeraj Patil, a businessman with links to Keith Vaz in 2015. But the figure’s likeness to the Speaker is rather questionable

Narinder Singh Chadha, the former chairman of Mr Vaz’s diabetes charity Silver Star, told The Times he gave £2,501 to Mr Bercow’s 2010 election campaign after Mr Vaz asked for the donation.

Other donations to Mr Bercow included £5,000 from the London College of Accountancy, which also gives money to Mr Vaz, and £2,500 from the late Lord Noon, a Labour donor whose Commons memorial tribute was hosted by Mr Vaz.

Mr Bercow received £7,500 from Sun Mark, a food company founded by Mr Vaz’s friend Rami Ranger, and £5,000 from Madhu’s, a restaurant chain run by Sanjay and Sanjeev Anand, friends of both Mr Vaz and Mr Bercow.

Neeraj Patil, a Labour councillor and associate of Mr Vaz, donated £2,500 through his business Dreamsland. He also gave Mr Bercow a wooden bust of himself.

All donations were declared by Mr Bercow and within the rules.

But Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said last night the connections raised questions about Mr Bercow’s handling of allegations involving Mr Vaz.

In September 2015, Mr Bridgen wrote to Mr Bercow requesting he contact police to ask about inquiries they were making into Mr Vaz and whether they conflicted with his position at the time as chairman of the home affairs select committee, but he said this was not part of his role.

After Mr Vaz stepped down from the role because of a rent boy scandal, Mr Bridgen tried to raise the matter of a separate police investigation involving the MP in the Commons in October last year as Mr Vaz was standing to join the justice select committee.

Mr Bercow interrupted him and said he should limit his remarks to information in the public domain.

A spokesman for Mr Bercow said last night he had at all times acted ‘to uphold the rules and conventions of the House of Commons’.

She added: ‘As a matter of parliamentary practice and procedure, a member is not given the floor to speak as a means of making a personal attack on the conduct of another member.

‘Mr Bridgen stated at the outset that he would try to limit his remarks to matters in the public domain. The Speaker permitted him to do so on matters of public record and stopped him when he sought to embark on other allegations, and again when he sought to reveal the contents of confidential correspondence with the Speaker.’

On the September 2015 request for Mr Bercow to speak to police, she said: ‘A select committee itself has the power to declare no confidence in its chair but the Speaker has precisely none.’

Regarding Mr Chadha’s suggestion that Mr Vaz had asked him to donate money to Mr Bercow, she said: ‘Whatever contacts eligible donors have with other Members of Parliament are a matter for them.’

Mr Vaz denied he had solicited donations for Mr Bercow and said Mr Chadha had been ‘misquoted and misrepresented’. He noted Sun Mark also gave £25,000 to Theresa May’s leadership campaign.

He added: ‘The British Asian community should not be criticised for making lawful political donations to political parties and individual MPs of their choice.’


I’ll just leave this here for you to chew over….

Sounds like Silver Star is not much more than Jim’s industrial-scale money-laundering washing machine!

You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours!

Does Bercow share Vaz’s pastimes?


John Bercow ‘stopped Tory MP from informing the Commons about Keith Vaz police probe after accepting donations’

  • Claims speaker refused to tell Mr Vaz to step down after warning from Tory MP he was being investigated for alleged abuse of public office in September 2015
  • Also stopped Tory MP informing Commons about investigation, report says 
  • Speaker’s office said of the donations: ‘There was no impropriety of any sort’
  • A spokesman for Mr Vaz called allegations made in a newspaper article ‘wrong’  

John Bercow stopped a Tory MP telling the Commons about a police probe into Keith Vaz after receiving tens of thousands of pounds worth of donations from his alleged associates, according to newspaper report.

Donations to help the Speaker keep his parliamentary seat reportedly included a sum from Narinder Chadha – chair of the management board of Mr Vaz’s Silver Star charity.

However a spokesperson for Mr Vaz told MailOnline the newspaper’s story was ‘wrong’ and that Mr Chadha denies having spoken ‘this year’ to The Times.

The newspaper reported an alleged conversation with Mr Chada in which he is said to have confirmed that he gave the money after a request from the MP for Leicester East.

Mr Vaz’s representatives deny this saying that Mr Chada will be complaining to IPSO over the Times article.

In total, the Speaker accepted £41,000 from donors thought to be linked to Mr Vaz, according to the newspaper.

The Times claimed Mr Bercow refused to tell Mr Vaz to resign as chair of the Home Affairs select committee after Tory MP Andrew Bridgen privately warned him the Labour MP was being investigated by police – an investigation Mr Vaz later said he knew nothing of in September 2015.

The Speaker later interrupted Mr Bridgen when he attempted to talk about the allegation in the Commons, according to The Times.

A spokesperson for the Speaker told the MailOnline that ‘a personally defamatory attack on another Member[ was not allowed] on the floor. The Speaker allowed….[Mr Bridger to speak] on matters of public record, and stopped him when he sought to embark on other allegations, and again when he sought to reveal the contents of confidential correspondence with the Speaker.’

Mr Vaz did eventually step down as chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee last year after he was caught meeting two male prostitutes.

This scandal was said to be unrelated to the police investigation in 2015.

A spokesman for Mr Bercow said the role of Speaker did not give him the right to tell an elected member of a select committee to step down.

Mr Vaz’s representatives said Mr Chadha had not spoken to The Times and called the claims in its article ‘wrong’.

All the other people who gave money to Mr Bercow told The Times they had not been told to do so by Mr Vaz.

Donations to help the Speaker keep his parliamentary seat included a payout from Narinder Chadha – chair of the management board of Mr Vaz’s (pictured) Silver Star charity

They also denied the donors listed by The Times were ‘associates’ of the Labour MP or they donated to Mr Bercow because he told them to do so.

There is no suggestion in The Times investigation Mr Bercow or Mr Vaz broke any rules.

Mr Vaz now sits on the Justice Committee, which oversees the director of public prosecutions.

After his appointment on October 1, 2016, Mr Bridgen spoke in the Commons to claim police were investigating claims Mr Vaz could have ‘abused his position in public office’.

The Speaker interrupted the Tory MP twice, saying he was discussing information that was not in the public domain.

A spokesman from the Speaker told MailOnline: ‘All of the donations to the Speaker Seeking Re-Election campaign were from eligible donors, and are a matter of longstanding public record.

‘There was absolutely no impropriety of any sort before or after any donation from any individual was accepted.

‘To suggest that this is not the case would not only be a wholly unfair impaction it would be, and is, demonstrably unproved and, more importantly completely and utterly untrue.’

Referring to Mr Bridgen’s speech, the representative said Mr Bercow had allowed him to speak on ‘matters of public record’.

But she added: ‘The Speaker topped him when he sought to embark on other allegations, and again when he sought to reveal the contents of confidential correspondence with the Speaker as per the longstanding rules.’

The spokesman also said Mr Bercow was not allowed to publish correspondence on a sensitive matter between him and another MP.

Mr Vaz said: ‘The British Asian community should not be criticised for making lawful political donations to political parties or to individual MPs. They are entitled to make their own decisions.

‘I am not surprised that they choose to donate to people like Speaker Bercow or Theresa May who are greatly admired by the community for their commitment to equality and diversity.

‘In the 30 years I have been in Parliament I have observed that the British Asian community have moved from just supporting the Labour Party to supporting other political parties.

‘This is a sign of the diversity of our country and the strength and confidence of the community. Long may it continue.’


 

Three Times Articles on Bercow and Vaz 11 Feb 2017

Here are three articles from the Times which illustrate the dubious nature of the double act Bercow and Vaz or is it Vaz and Bercow?

It exposes amongst other things that the Bercow had much donated to him from chums of Dodgy Vaz. [but not so far any industrial washing machines :)]

This of course adds to my own post on their Right Dodgynesses and FOI Requests, Bercow and Vaz Personal / Private Conflicts of Interest  [4], where there is information on how to make a complaint.

Bercow ‘blocked MP from revealing investigation into Keith Vaz after accepting donations’

JOHN Bercow blocked warnings of police investigations into shamed Labour MP Keith Vaz after receiving tens of thousands of pounds from donors allegedly linked to the politician, according to reports.

Feb 11, 2017

The donations included one payout from Narinder Chadha – the Chairman of the management board of Mr Vaz’s Silver Star Charity.

Mr Chadha has since admitted he made the donation after a recommendation from Mr Vaz.

Mr Vaz was forced to resign as chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee after it was revealed he was involved in a sex party with two male prostitutes.

According to a Freedom of Information request by The Times, the Speaker amassed £41,000 from donors with links to Mr Vaz

 The Times investigation claims Mr Bercow did not ask Mr Vaz to step down from his prestigious place on the Home Affairs Committee after MP Andrew Bridgen privately alerted him to allegations being made police.
The paper claimed the Speaker later called on Mr Bridgen to sit down as he attempted to talk about the allegations – which related to alleged abuse of Mr Vaz’s position in office and had no relation to his sex scandal last year.Mr Vaz currently sits on the Justice Committee, who oversee the director of public prosecutions.
After the Labour MP was appointment to the committee, Mr Bridgen made a speech to the Commons claiming police were investigating allegations Mr Vaz might have “abused his position in public office”.But Mr Bercow, who was not obliged to act on the allegations, interrupted the concerned MP twice – claiming he was attempting to speak about events that were not publicly known.Mr Bercow told The Times all of the donors were personal acquaintances who he had met on a variety of different occasions.Mr Vaz said members of the Asian community financially supported MPs, including Mr Bercow, due to admiration for their commitment to diversity.

A spokesperson for Mr Bercow’s offices said: “The Speaker’s seven years’ experience in office and his professional adviser’s 40 years’ experience carry rather greater weight than the implication that the Speaker’s Office should operate in the manner of an episode of Diagnosis Murder — keeping order in the chamber by day and investigating alleged crimes by night.“Although this is a pitch I may well make at some stage if I decide to go into the writing of daytime drama, the reality is that this is not how the role of the Speaker works.“To be clear: the Speaker implements standing orders and chairs proceedings in the chamber – freestyling as Columbo at the request of a member on the basis of an unsubstantiated allegation is not part of the Speaker’s job description.”http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/765991/John-Bercow-Keith-Vaz-Andrew-Bridgen-police-investigation-donations-select-committee

What Has The Sun Got On Keith Vaz?

The art of tabloid news, as Zelo Street regulars will know by now, consists not only of getting some stories out there, but preventing others from doing the same. Hence anything that assists the attacks on politicians of inconvenient view, judges making decisions that their proprietors don’t like, and Slebs who exercise their right to speak freely gets out there, while anything on the likes of John Whittingdale most certainly does not.
Keith Vaz


So it was that the Tabs knew all about Whitto and his relationships with a number of known sex workers, but published nothing – not until Byline Media, with Zelo Street in the vanguard, had put the story out there. So it also seems to be with Labour MP Keith Vaz, about whom sources independent of one another have recently voiced concern, but who is still in post as MP for Leicester East, and still chairing a Commons committee.

Accusations: Natalie Rowe


This state of affairs has not pleased Natalie Rowe, former purveyor of strict disciplinary measures to the Rt Hon Gideon George Oliver Osborne, heir to the Seventeenth Baronet. After the Mirror stung Vaz in true red-top fashion paying rent boys for sex, she hinted very firmly that the MP could look forward to rather more dirt being dished in the very near future. But thus far there has been much indignation, and little revelation.

Heavyweight opinion: The Great Guido


After Vaz got himself onto that Commons committee, Ms Rowe voiced her concern on Twitter – in Tweets which are still live. “So when #Vaz intervened when Leicester City Council tried to evict a tenant suspected of running a male brothel, things become clearer” she began last November, adding soon afterwards “I personally have seen #Vaz come out of a known brothel”. And there was more.

Only two weeks ago she asserted “So EVERYONE is aware, I gave ALL details that I knew via a source regarding #KeithVaz, that he was a Landlord of a brothel in Earls Court … @TheSun had Vaz Male – Escorts Years before ON Video, I Asked why they didn’t run: Said there wasn’t enough evidence … The Sun was more pissed off that their golden boy Vaz had been exposed & that Mirror had the SCOOP of the YEAR”.
There are two significant claims there: that Vaz is alleged to have been the landlord of a brothel in Earl’s Court, and that the Sun has significant dirt on the MP that it has declined thus far to publish. So far, so interesting, but the accusations of improper behaviour are also coming from the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog. Staines is often wayward on facts, but his claims are still live as I type.
This was the Fawkes take: “Keith Vaz was under police investigation over year ago on suspicion of financial corruption and historic allegations of under-age sex. Speaker Bercow was informed of this and fellow MPs demanded – Andrew Bridgen in writing – that he step down from his position on the Home Affair Select Committee”. Vaz has since threatened legal action against Bridgen. And then comes the really damning claim.
It is widely known around Westminster that Vaz – who owes his career to Greville Janner – was the unidentified MP in this Sun front page from last year … Vaz offering to buy cocaine for rent boys is at the mild end of Vaz’s sleazy life and times”. The Sunday Sun front page simply saidCOPS TOLD: TOP LABOUR MP IS PAEDO”. The story is still live.
These are two sources who are independent of one another. Both are effectively saying the same thing: there is a lot yet to be revealed about Keith Vaz, and if and when it comes out, it will be of a career-terminating nature.
The Fawkes folks have not added to their claims for a while: the thought enters that The Great Guido, being an establishment sell-out, has been advised to keep the MP on the back burner. Ms Rowe suffers from no such restriction.
In the days when the deeply unsavoury Kelvin McFilth was editing the paper, the standing joke was that he had a large safe full of dirt on the good and the great which could be used to keep them in line. Now the name of Keith Vaz has been pitched – and by two very different sources – as someone on whom the Murdoch mafiosi have dirt.
So the question has to be put: what dirt has the Sun got on Keith Vaz, and, more importantly, what’s preventing them from dishing it? We’re waiting.

And you’re telling me Bercow wasn’t aware of police investigation against Vaz and isn’t abusing his position to protect him



https://twitter.com/CathyCathyFox

Under the Freedom of Information Act I applied to the House of Commons, for the letter, redacted if necessary, that Andrew Bridgen MP sent to speaker John Bercow [1]

berocw-vaz-2

The letter applied for is thought to have been sent to warn the House of Commons of possible vile criminal activities involving Keith Vaz and that they were being investigated by the police.

These allegations and the conflict of interest by Vaz (being investigated for criminal activities whilst on a powerful justice committee) it seems were not passed on by Bercow to anyone. This enabled Vaz, having resigned, from the Home Office Public Affairs Committee to swiftly join the Justice Committee. (To be clear, this is fact not irony).

The person who eventually refused to provide that information under the FOI Act, was none other than …….John Bercow!

Keith Vaz offers to put up bail for jailed Leicester footballers – jailed on rape charges

6 March 2004

Keith Vaz, the MP for Leicester East and a former government minister, yesterday offered to act as a guarantor for the release on bail of three Leicester City footballers held this weekend in a Spanish jail on rape charges.

Mr Vaz, a season ticket holder, said yesterday that the players were internationally known and could not disappear, so should be granted bail.

I will be happy to act as a guarantor,” he said.

Disgraced Keith Vaz lobbies bank boss over friend’s £11million debt despite Commons guidelines

The MP’s staff had previously told Mr Vaz’s friend that he was unable to get involved as he was not the constituency MP

19 NOV 2016

Keith Vaz ignored Commons guidelines to intervene on behalf of a friend who did not live in his constituency.

Yet Vaz ’s staff had previously told a business partner locked in a bitter dispute with the friend that he was unable to get involved as he was not that man’s MP.

On Commons paper, the then-Home Affairs Committee chair asked Royal Bank of ­Scotland boss Stephen Hester to look into an £11million debt owed by the partnership – which also has an address outside the constituency – but the dispute was none of his ­committee’s business either.

He should instead have been referred to his own MP – a protocol Vaz’s staff appeared well aware of when the friend’s estranged brother, Jack Kotak, himself pleaded for assistance.ang

Jack wrote to Vaz asking for help with RBS on December 20, 2012, but was told by a caseworker the MP could not assist.

An email sent to Jack from Vaz’s office said that because MPs are governed by “very strict ­guidelines and parliamentary etiquette” he would need to see his own MP.

The caseworker suggested Jack contact his own MP, Alan Duncan.

But on January 31, 2013, six weeks after turning down Jack, Vaz penned the letter to RBS chief executive Mr Hester (above).

Don Kotek, Shilpa Shetty, and Keith Vaz

Within seven days Vaz’s friend, Midlands businessman Don Kotak, was granted a meeting with senior RBS staff in a bid to resolve the long-running dispute.

But Mr Kotak does not live in Vaz’s Leicester East seat – and guidelines issued to all MPs and recorded in the House of Commons library indicate Vaz should not have taken the case.

Vaz said yesterday: “This case relates to a business within my constituency, Sabras Radio, which serves the wider community in the Midlands.

“Don Kotak approached me to help in his capacity as a director of Sabras.

Since Keith Vaz’s appointment to the Criminal Finance Bill committee this week, it has sat twice, on Tuesday and today. For some reason – to the great disappointment of hacks – Vaz has absented himself from both sessions. Guido can give readers some background as to why that might be…

Guido understands Labour whips have been told that not only is Vaz now under investigation by Scotland Yard, they have been made aware that four files regarding Vaz have been passed to the National Crime Agency. Given that the Bill committee have been taking evidence from the National Crime Agency it would clearly be completely inappropriate for Vaz to attend this committee. If Vaz had attended he would either have to recuse himself or declare his interest. Rather than face the embarrassment, slippery Vaz has unofficially recused himself by not showing up…

This latest outrage comes just days after Scotland Yard launched the formal robe probe in the the Leicester MP after recordings emerged of him allegedly discussing cocaine with male prostitutes in August.

BBC Reports Keith Vaz Booed in Leicester

Nov 14 2016

Usually the attention-grabbing Keith Vaz is cheered by constituents when he takes to the stage at the annual Diwali light switch-on in Leicester. This year he skulked at the back and was booed by the home crowd. Vaz is clinging to his position on the Justice select committee despite potentially breaking a law he helped draft. He retains the Labour whip and still sits on the party’s NEC despite consorting with prostitutes and trying his hand at procuring drug deals. Corbyn has defended Vaz – who is the subject of a police investigation – claiming it is a “private matter”. 

Compare this to the treatment of Simon Danczuk, a single man who sexted a woman but didn’t meet her let alone break any laws, and was immediately suspended by Labour. At the time Corbyn told the press: He was suspended this morning because of recent revelations. His conduct will now be investigated”. This is a glaring double standard – the only real reason action has been taken against Danczuk but not Vaz is their differing attitudes to the leader.

As Tory MP Edward Garnier told the Leicester Mercury today: 

“This is the justice select committee – it is not the drawing pins committee or the paperclips committee. It is not appropriate for an MP under investigation by the police to be on the committee.”

Patti Boulaye –v- Guardian Newspapers 1999 (recovered substantial damages for British-Nigerian singer who was a Conservative candidate for the Greater London Assembly falsely accused of being a supporter of South African apartheid)


Over the years, Patti has worked for charities and served on the committees of eight British charities and she has been a patron of five, including Eastside Educational Trust, Barnardo’s, SOS and Women Into Business. Patti was also a Founder Member and Patron of (HRH Prince Michael of Kent) Enterprise Club for GENESIS, the facilitator organisation for the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the promotion of Small Business. She is also on the Advisory Board of The Iman-Foundation Worldwide, which promotes dialogue and challenges extremism to bring about change. Patti is a Patron of The Commonwealth Resound as well as The British Monarchist Society.

During a visit to Africa and by another twist of fate, Patti was introduced to 60 babies who were saved from being buried alive because they were HIV positive. On her return to England Patti was determined to do something about the affect and stigma of HIV on the lives of African villagers. She formed a charity Support For Africa and asked the Rt. Hon Sir John Major KG CH and other prominent persons to be Patrons, all of whom agreed and her charity has built 5 clinics in Africa and helped to build a School in Lesotho with Prince Harry’s Charity Sentebale. Patti hired the Royal Albert Hall for a charity event, which she presented and organised. This was the first of her sell-out “Reaching Out For Africa” events, which she co-produced with Major Sir Michael Parker KCVO CBE at the Royal Albert Hall, starring Sir Cliff Richard, Gabrielle, Uri Geller, Patti herself and BONEY M, amongst others and featured 3,000 Gospel singers whom Patti put together herself.

The event was supported by The Rt. Hon Michael Portillo, Frederick Forsyth CBE, The Rt. Hon Iain Duncan Smith, The Rt. Hon Paul Boateng, The Rt. Hon. Lord Greville Janner QC and the new Miss World. Patti’s second sell out Royal Albert Hall charity event was Football Reaching Out For Africa (FROFA) and starred, among others, footballer Didier Drogba of Chelsea FC, Simon Callow, Boney M, Christopher Biggins, Greg Dyke, David James and The Rt. Hon. Charles Kennedy. Patti also produced ‘Scotland Reaching Out For Africa’ supported by Lord McConnell the then First Minister and Alex Salmond the current First Minister, Football manager Alex McLeish, Leo Sayer, Mazie Willams and Boney M.

During the evening, she extracted £25,000 from Bristol-based student housebuilder Unite to help build her next medical centre in Cameroon. It’s Unite’s first overseas project.

Patti has starred several times in “Music on Fire” the Fireworks Proms at Sandhurst. As a guest of Michael Jackson, Patti attended and sang at his 45th Birthday Celebrations in LA.

Shamed MP Keith Vaz

Disgraced Keith Vaz is at the centre of a police investigation over drug allegations.

It came after a review into claims the Labour MP discussed cocaine with male escorts at sex parties.

Scotland Yard said: “Following that assessment, which included obtaining early investigative advice from the Crown Prosecution Service, the MPS is now ­investigating offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.”

The Met launched the probe on Thursday. It said yesterday a specialist team had been involved in a month-long examination of the drug claims.

Vaz stood down as Home Affairs Committee chairman in September after the Sunday Mirror revealed he paid two men for sex at his London flat on August 27 – as his panel examined laws on prostitution.

Speaker John Bercow said the move may have broken convention, but it did not break the rules of the house.

Mr Bridgen told MPs he had spoken to the Metropolitan police, who had still not decided what, if any, action to take.

He said: “A potential Police investigation still hangs over the honourable member.

Tory Whips save Vaz

List of MPs who voted for Vaz – including 159 Tories on the instructions of the Tory whips

Perhaps the Tories will put Vaz in charge of their toothless floundering child abuse inquiry while they’re at it.
