Uncle Harry’s Friends…

As I continue with the research for this blog, I find that when I revisit people and subjects about which I have previously blogged, I notice things of which I previously did not realise the significance. Such is my workload that I do not have time to revisit as many areas as I would like and I often only end up digging deeper after noticing something interesting by coincidence.

Earlier today I came across a reference to a dreadful old Top Doc who’s biography boasted that she was a former President of the Women’s Medical Federation. Many women’s professional associations are every bit as ruthless as the associations of the professional men who have outraged their female colleagues and those who hold senior office in the wimmin’s  organisations are often not quite what they would like people to believe they are.

The Medical Women’s Federation is the largest UK body of women doctors. The organisation is ‘dedicated to the advancement of the personal and professional development of women in medicine and to improving the health of women and their families in society’. It was founded in 1917, and its HQ is located in Tavistock Square, London, close to their friends the BMA.

The Medical Women’s Federation contained 190 members to begin with and the Federation launched a campaign to promote the role of women in the armed forces. The Federation collected testimonies and excellent records, but despite their petitioning and campaigning the War Office remained reluctant to grant women equal status. Other early focuses included venereal disease, prostitution and maternity and infant welfare. I have previously discussed on the blog how Lady Doctors of this generation were nearly always Posh Ladies who were telling very much more disadvantaged women how to look after their families and indeed themselves. The Lady Doctors viewed their less privileged patients in a rather different way than their social equals. That is not say that the Lady Doctors were entirely destructive, many were genuinely wishing to make a positive contribution, but they were not the creatures portrayed in TV dramas… People are often shocked to discover that Marie Stopes (Stopes was of course a botanist rather than a medical doctor, but she campaigned with Lady Doctors on birth control) was a eugenicist. A great many well educated people of the time were, including huge numbers of Top Docs. See previous posts. It was not unusual to still find practising Top Docs who were eugenicists in the 1960s and during that decade parents of disabled children were told by Lady Doctors as well as male doctors to put their children in an institution and forget about them. Those children were not treated well within those institutions either, they were indeed forgotten about by everyone, including the Top Doctors, Ladies as well as men.

In the 1920s, the Medical Women’s Federation was concerned about the number of organisations which restricted access to women, including medical schools, local authorities and other employers. Several medical schools had reverted to refusing women access and many organisations had marriage bars. An early campaign of the Federation included a 1918 protest against London County Council’s decision to return to a pre-war refusal to employ married women. A standing committee on Married Medical Women followed in 1921. By the 1930s, Stepney and the city of York had appointed women Medical Officers of Health. Stepney and York had not yet become exercised with regard to the organised abuse of children or vulnerable adults, the appalling conditions in long-stay institutions or the systematic discrimination against people in poverty by Top Docs and officials…

The Federation examined varied aspects of women’s health during the inter-war years. Issues included venereal disease, nutrition, lunacy law reform, the fitness of women to pilot commercial aeroplanes, the menopause and guidance on the hygiene of menstruation (a Federation pamphlet on this subject sold 10,000 copies in a single year). The advice was not dispensed in the way in which one would dispense guidance to an equal whom one respected. Another focus during this period was sexual health. In 1921, a subcommittee was appointed to discuss birth control. By 1931, a resolution was passed stating that instruction in the provision of birth control should be included in medical schools’ gynaecological syllabus. They also argued that the Birth Control Investigation Committee ought to include a woman gynaecologist. At the time there were plenty of Top Docs, both male and female, who did not believe that birth control should be available to anyone. Others believed that it should be compulsory, but only for disabled people or poor people.

The Federation achieved several successes in terms of incorporating their concerns into Gov’t policy during WW II. Women served on a number of medical boards and panels of consultants, though not on the Ministry of Labour’s staff. Lady Doctors played a full part in ordering reluctant men to join the Army, in denouncing some soldiers who were seriously ill as malingerers, in managing (or concealing) the fall-out from the war such as increased rates of STIs, sexual assaults and illegitimate births.

During these years, Lady Doctors also played a full part in confining some women to asylums if they become pregnant out of wedlock. Lady Doctors knew that women comprised the majority of patients who were lobotomised. There wasn’t any Campaigning on such matters.

The Federation lobbied Gov’t on issues including equal pay, the birth rate, nursery school provision and the employment of women in the Diplomatic Services. In 1944, the Goodenough Committee strongly advocated changes to medicine including mixed medical schools and called for open competition for all hospital appointments. Its criticism of discrimination against women in hospitals as going against public interest was significant in furthering the aims of the Federation. The Federation will not have lobbied Gov’t with regard to working class women and equal pay and open appointments for them. I don’t mind that the Federation campaigned for the interests of Lady Doctors, but I don’t think that we should believe that they were busy working on behalf of the oppressed.

From the end of WW II, the Federation played an increasingly influential role in British medicine due to its representation on other medical bodies. In 1946, the BMA appointed its first women members and throughout the 1950s and 60s Federation members worked with the BMA and the GMC as well as other official committees. The Medical Women’s Federation were totally at one with the arrogance, the abuses, the unfair practices, the failure to discipline dangerous doctors, the constant blackmailing of the Gov’ts during pay negotiations for senior docs and the gross exploitation of junior doctors. 

In addition to long-standing campaigns to address workplace or educational grievances of women medics, campaign issues during the decades following WW II included: nursery arrangements, care of the child under the NHS, pain in childbirth, the health of schoolgirls, family planning in the NHS, abortion, rape and sexual assault, assisted reproduction and child health. That there continued to be such dissatisfaction with regard to all of these areas by other campaigners and activists suggests that the Medical Women’s Federation was not very effective. Up in north Wales, just look at what Gwynne and Dafydd were doing. No-one heard a word from the Medical Women’s Federation.

In 1970, the organisation became eligible for charitable status and was registered on 16 November as the Medical Women’s Federation Grant Fund. It is now registered with the Charity Commission under its own name. In 2008 the organisation reported having 1,200 members.

The Top Doc who’s Inspirational Life Story drew my attention to the Medical Women’s Federation was Dr Beryl Corner, who served as President, 1968-69. Readers who have been following recent posts and the comments that follow those posts will know that I am currently making my way through the Diaries of Richard Crossman, Harold Wilson’s Secretary of State for Social Services, Nov 1968-June 1970. Dick Crossman presided over a new Gov’t Dept which had been created by merging the Ministry of Health with Social Services. What a lot of fun Dick Crossman’s Diaries are. Crossman’s time as Secretary of State spanned the years when Dafydd and Gwynne not only did exactly what they wanted no matter how many laws were broken and patients died, but the added extra during Crossman’s incumbency was John Allen’s acquisition of the first of his children’s homes in north Wales. It was on Crossman’s watch that John Allen and Dafydd went into business big-time; the conditions for their start-up were particularly conducive because the child molester George Thomas had been appointed Secretary of State for Wales and just as that happened, responsibility for the NHS and Social Services in Wales were transferred to the Welsh Office!

Richard Crossman was the Labour MP for Coventry East, 1945-74. Coventry was ruled by Dafydd’s partners-in-crime and kids in care from Coventry were sent to kids homes in north Wales. When Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass concealed the criminality of Dafydd and the gang in 1989 during the ‘investigation’ of my complaint, Bluglass was assisted by Dr Colin Berry, a Top Doctor from Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’. The production line for child sex workers in north Wales really took off after 1974, by which time Crossman had died. He returned to the backbenches in 1970 when Labour lost power and between 1970 and 1972, Crossman edited the ‘New Statesman’. Crossman was a prolific writer but he never wrote about what Dafydd and Gwynne were getting up to or about the enormous incestuous Dept which was the DHSS, in which every Minister, adviser and Civil Service mandarin was a either a mate of Dafydd’s or part of the sex abuse ring which Dafydd et al were facilitating.

Crossman was a graduate of New College, Oxford, a favourite recruiting ground for the security services at the time (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny’) and while at Oxford he had numerous gay affairs. Crossman remained at Oxford after graduation as a Fellow and taught there, before lecturing for the WEA. At the outbreak of WW II, Crossman joined the Political Warfare Executive under Robert Bruce Lockheart, where he headed the German Section. Crossman produced anti-Nazi propaganda broadcasts for Radio of the European Revolution, set up by the SOE.

Crossman eventually became Assistant Chief of the Psychological Warfare Division of SHAEF.

Crossman was probably trying to induce ruptured organs in the enemy by excessive laughter. Unless of course you were a 13 year old being gang raped in Bryn Estyn, but er they weren’t The Enemy were they?? So what was the rationale Dafydd? Or did you and Gwynne think that kids in care were undercover KGB agents?

In April 1945, Crossman was one of the first British officers to enter the former Dachau concentration camp. Crossman became a key participant in the annual Konigswinter Conference, bringing together British and German legislators, academics and opinion formers from 1950 onwards. The conferences were credited with helping to heal bad memories created by the war. Obviously one wouldn’t want the bad memories to remain because it might be difficult to persuade the population to support another war. Denis Healey attended the conference, as did Robin Day. Healey later worked hard to protect Dafydd et al and Robin Day was Ronnie Waterhouse’s closest friend.

Theresa’s Gov’t is going to bring paedophiles to justice! There’ll be no hiding place for them! The police can assure the Victims that they’ll be treated sympathetically. Professor Alexis Jay, a Professor of Social Work who was responsible for the Orkney Satanic Abuse Panic (see eg. post ‘The Scottish Play’), is Chairing the IICSA, that’s how serious the state is about this. Just don’t mention the War or the fact that Dafydd et al received 100% backing from the security services…

When Beryl was President of the Medical Women’s Federation, Crossman was Secretary of State for the DHSS and Sir Kenneth Robinson, Dafydd’s mate, had finished his stint as Health Minister. Dafydd’s mate Lord David Ennals was a Minister under Crossman. Dafydd’s other mate Professor Brian Abel-Smith was knocking around in the DHSS as well and the services of Abel-Smith’s pal Prof Richard Titmuss were also being called upon. Babs Castle was first Secretary of State and Crossman got on very well with Babs and consulted her about many matters. Abel-Smith, Ennals and Babs spent years propping up Dafydd and the gang, as did Crossman while he was around. They knew damn well that Dafydd et al were running a sex abuse ring and everything suggests that Abel-Smith, Ennals and Crossman were part of the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts.

Before she died in 2007, Beryl was the subject of much romancing with regard to media accounts of her career. Beryl’s wiki entry supplies the information that Beryl Corner (1910–2007) ‘specialised in the care and treatment of children and pioneered neonatology. She excelled as a medical student at the London School of Medicine for Women but then had trouble finding a post at institutions like Great Ormond Street Hospital because she was a woman.’

Ah the doctors they were discriminatory!

They let Jimmy Savile into GOSH but not Beryl, so ‘Beryl established a career at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and, for several years, was the only paediatrician in South West England. She was admitted to the British Paediatrics Association in 1945. Corner established a unit to care for newborn babies. With a budget of £100 she was able to halve mortality rates. In 1948 she was the consultant paediatrician who oversaw the first caesarian birth of four quads born at Bristol.’

The Torygraph’s obituary for Beryl fills in the picture further:

Beryl Corner, who died on March 4 aged 96, was the first paediatrician in the south-west of England and one of the British founders of neonatology, the care of newborn babies; she was also the last survivor of a group of women paediatricians whose achievements helped to break down barriers to the advancement of women in medicine.

In the early part of the 20th century children were cared for by adult physicians, and it was not until after the end of the Second World War that paediatrics really began to develop as a separate speciality. Beryl Corner therefore faced resistance from physicians who saw no need for paediatricians; from obstetricians who thought they were able to look after newborns and tried to ban her from the maternity wards; and from the male doctors who controlled hospital appointments and were hostile to the admittance of women to training posts, let alone senior positions. She met these challenges with her exceptional intellectual gifts, unbounded energy, an iron will and a passionate devotion to the care of babies and children.

The real story was that Beryl was not accepted and indeed completely obstructed by what were no doubt appalling old gits and had to put up with this crap and a career that was at the time seen as third rate.

The daughter of a local government officer and his Scottish wife, Beryl Dorothy Corner was born on December 9 1910. Her family had lived in Bristol for four generations, and she was educated at Redland High School for Girls, where she won the form prize every year. She went on to be a prize-winning medical student at the London School of Medicine for Women (Royal Free), qualifying in 1934 and then sailing through her higher medical exams two years later.

In the 1930s, medical students were not allowed to fail so badly that they were removed from the course. They were allowed to retake until they were waved through to qualify as Top Docs. So we can actually deduce nothing about Beryl’s academic ability from this account. Academic standards in medicine then were very different to the standards which have prevailed for the last 30 years.

 

Beryl’s interest in paediatrics was kindled during her years as a student, when she accompanied ward rounds at Great Ormond Street Hospital and was taught by Sir Robert Hutchison.

Although Sir Robert Hutchison refused to employ Beryl after she qualified.

After house officer posts at the Royal Free, the realistic option for her – as a woman doctor – was to obtain a post in general practice or in public health;

The Women’s Medical Federation had not managed to break down many barriers.

and she was about to join a general practice in Bristol when a friend of the family, a surgeon, suggested that she apply for a vacant post as resident medical officer at the Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Beryl’s career was therefore given a boost by that tried and tested method used by Top Doctors: help from an influential Top Doctor friend.

As a young doctor at the hospital she encountered malnutrition, rickets, anaemia, tuberculosis, polio, diphtheria and high death rates among newborn babies; then there were the effects of child poverty and lack of sanitation, the devastating mortality from gastroentertitis and the toll taken by childhood infections in the pre-antibiotic era and before the development of modern vaccines.

Top Docs at the time did recognise how many of their patients were ill because of poverty but that didn’t stop a moralistic orientation towards the patients and a view on the part of many Top Docs that the patients were responsible for their own poverty.

Beryl Corner recognised the importance of meticulous nursing care, good nutrition and the prevention of cross-infection.

Beryl will have been taught this when she was winning prizes at medical school. She was working in the 1930s not the 1980s. They knew about Germs.

She also became convinced of the need for doctors who specialised in the care of children, rather than physicians who dropped in to do rounds.

Beryl may have been genuinely convinced of that, but Beryl was a Doc who was being marginalised and prevented from undertaking work that she was really keen to do. Top Docs are remarkably good at creating opportunities for themselves under such circumstances. Or indeed simply rewriting history decades later.

This brought her into conflict with physicians who saw no need for a paediatrician and with a professor of medicine who seemed to resent her presence, telling her that there was no future in paediatrics.

They will have taken the view that if Beryl was any good – ie. a man – she would have bagged a Proper Job within the structure that was in place.

Seeking further training in paediatrics, Beryl Corner found that she could not apply to Great Ormond Street Hospital, since it had a policy of not employing women house physicians. She applied for a post as registrar at the Westminster Children’s Hospital, only to be told in a letter from Donald Paterson, a consultant and secretary of the British Paediatric Association, that – although she was the outstanding candidate – they could not appoint her because she was a woman.

None of this was Beryl’s fault. It does however give the lie to tales about Beryl’s genius and iron will Overcoming. She couldn’t Overcome, they wouldn’t let her. She had to pander to them; the other option would have been to tell them to take a running jump and use her education in another field where perhaps she could start breaking the walls down. Beryl didn’t do that…

Eventually she obtained a post at the Brompton Hospital in London before returning to Bristol, where she was appointed honorary (unpaid) physician to the children’s outpatients in 1937; in this way she became one of the first full-time paediatricians in Britain, surviving with money she earned from teaching nurses and some private practice.

So the Top Docs valued Beryl so little that she had to undertake a voluntary job. Beryl might have loved doing that and she might have done an excellent job, but Beryl had not become ‘one of the first full-time paediatricians in Britain’. They wouldn’t let her work as a paediatrician. This is no sleight on Beryl, but the fairy story about Beryl overcoming this dreadful establishment needs blowing out of the water. Beryl would have done better to have made it quite clear just how entrenched and meat-headed this lot were and made it clear that people should have told them to stick it, rather than pandering to them and pretending that the Women’s Medical Federation Changed Things.

Determined to improve the care of newborn babies, Beryl Corner ventured on to the maternity wards at Bristol. Told by the obstetricians that her presence was not welcome, she simply ignored them,

That is not true. They will have allowed her there for some reason, no matter how grudgingly. One cannot simply walk onto a ward if one has no role on that ward and stay there treating someone else’s patients if one is told to leave. One can’t do that now and one certainly couldn’t do it then. This tale about Beryl is nonsense.

and was instrumental in improving the medical and nursing care of babies, leading to a reduction in perinatal mortality.

Then she must have been given some sort of official role. Even Dafydd couldn’t stroll onto the the maternity wards at Bristol and treat other Top Docs’ baby patients without their permission, I’ve never heard such nonsense. The most appalling things do go on in hospitals, but they happen because senior members of staff allow them to happen. Dafydd was ‘holding ward rounds’ at 3 am in the women’s dorms because Sir Kenneth Robinson allowed someone to give him a job as a consultant.

In 1942 she was appointed consultant paediatrician, and went on to set up the special care baby unit at Southmead Hospital;

She hadn’t just been putting on a white coat and pretending then, she did have some sort of role and was then promoted. That will have happened because like psychiatry, paediatrics was a very low status speciality and that’s why Beryl was allowed to do it, but not at GOSH, only at Southmead.

 it opened in 1946 and gained an international reputation, providing the example for many other such units in Britain.

It probably didn’t, GOSH will have had the big reputation in the field and they won’t have tolerated usurping from the upstart whom they refused to employ.

She was also a founder member of the Neonatal Society and became an adviser in neonatology to the World Health Organisation.

Neonatology was a new discipline so it won’t have been difficult to have been a founder member of their Society. Furthermore in Beryl’s day, there was not the equipment available to sustain the lives of very premature babies, so Beryl won’t have been doing the impressive hi-tech medicine that neonatologists do today. Beryl will have been taking care of premature babies as best as she could yet all but the strongest, late gestation babies would have died. No-one would have expected otherwise.

As well as meticulous care, Southmead offered the detection and treatment of haemolytic disease in the newborn; incubator care for premature infants; good nutrition; the prevention of cross-infection; a breast milk bank; and outreach health visitors.

Even the North Wales Hospital Denbigh offered ‘meticulous care’. The very worst of Top Docs and Angels only offer the very best at all times. Other things on offer from Beryl were standard in big hospitals.

In 1948 Beryl Corner came to the attention of a wider public when she cared for the Good quads – the first in Britain to be born by caesarean section and survive.

But Beryl didn’t deliver the quads. The exciting bit was done by other Docs, the Docs who had elbowed Beryl out of the way for her entire career.

Between 1942 and 1947 she was the only paediatrician in south-west England, offering her services to help with paediatric problems from Swindon in the east, to the Scilly Isles in the west and Tewkesbury to the north.

I have some knowledge of the state of paediatric nursing in Taunton in the 1950s. It wasn’t anything to boast about and there were more than a few horrors… So the roving Beryl wasn’t doing rocket science.

She initiated one of Britain’s first courses in paediatric medicine for medical students and published many research papers in her career, as well as a widely-read book on prematurity.

A ‘course’ for medical students would have been a small number of lectures, if that. Top Docs of Beryl’s vintage didn’t publish ‘many’ research papers, even Docs holding Chairs didn’t publish prolifically at that time, it was a very different culture.

In 1945 she and four other distinguished women paediatricians were finally allowed to become members of the British Paediatric Association.

So although Beryl was the ‘first full time paediatrician’ in Britain, a few others were also knocking around and they were members of the British Paediatrics Association before Beryl.

Beryl Corner made a tactical decision not to present herself as a feminist;

Very few Lady Doctors did in Beryl’s day. Medicine is and was then a very conservative profession and Simone de Beauvoir would never have been able to tolerate it.

but she was always supportive of women doctors who came to her for help with problems of discrimination.

It will have been a matter of Ladies Having a Heart-to-Heart, discrimination was still entrenched at the time and Beryl and the Women’s Medical Federation didn’t make many inroads.

Short of stature, she travelled around Bristol in a large white Mercedes

Ah she was there for the Poor! This was Bristol, there won’t have been many Mercs zooming about the place.

which could seem driverless until it passed by at speed and her distinctive profile could be seen behind the wheel. She was sociable and charming, loyal and supportive to her extended family, and helpful to young paediatricians who showed commitment; but she did not hesitate to show disapproval at work if she thought her high standards were not met by her staff.

The brutalised Beryl went on to kick others in the chops.

She could be quick to anger, but such displays were never personal and they soon passed.

What did I say…

Most of those who worked for her came to regard her with affection and respect.

Their careers would have stopped had they said anything else.

Towards the end of her life Beryl Corner became something of a television celebrity with the screening of several programmes about her life in medicine. In her 95th year she was appointed OBE.

Beryl died in 2007. Towards the end of her life, Baker and Brown had started publishing about the north Wales mental health services of which a key component was the corrupt GP Dr D.G.E. Wood, who qualified at BRISTOL MEDICAL SCHOOL and who’s father was a Top Doctor FROM BRISTOL.

Paedophiles in distress, paedophiles in distress, D.G.E. Wood calling, D.G.E. Wood calling…

Brown’s mum was found dead in her bed in 2005, some 40 miles south of BRISTOL. Brown’s dad had previously been found dead during the Waterhouse Inquiry at his home in BRISTOL.

She was an accomplished amateur musician, made contributions to the study of medical history, and became “paediatrician” to Bristol Zoo, where she was an innovator in the care of sick newborn primates. On at least one occasion she admitted a premature chimpanzee to the neonatal unit at the hospital along with other babies in incubators.

Wood et al have definitely been at work here. I expect that Beryl did the silly voices that Johnny Morris used to do as well and gave the elephants a hose down. ‘Animal Magic’ was filmed at Bristol Zoo, or at least the bits that weren’t filmed in the studio were. Johnny Morris was a man of far right and mean spirited views, when he wasn’t doing the children’s programmes he used to bang on about wanting to bring back hanging.

Something even weirder about Johnny Morris – who came from Newport in south Wales and worked at the BBC through the Paedophile Years – was the timing and nature of his death. A diabetic, Morris collapsed at his home in Hungerford, Berkshire in March 1999 when he was about to star in a new animal series, Wild Thing, on ITV. Admitted to the Princess Margaret Hospital, Swindon for tests, Morris was discharged to a nursing home in the Devizes and Marlborough district, where he died on 6 May 1999. His wife, Eileen, had died 10 years previously; he had two stepsons. Morris bequeathed his house to his co-host on Animal Magic, Terry Nutkins, a large sum of cash to his housekeeper, Rita Offer and smaller sums to his gardener and his builder but he left nothing to his stepsons, his step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren, possibly due to a failed business partnership which had cost him £500,000.

The Waterhouse Report was published in Feb 2000. Sir Peter Morrison’s family seat was in Wiltshire. Morrison was found dead in his house in July 1995, the month that Dafydd ‘retired’. Morrison’s brother Charles was the Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92. The Morrison family pretty much ruled Wiltshire and had done for many years. They owned substantial estates, sat on Wiltshire County Council and occupied other influential positions…

It is quite easy to ensure that someone with diabetes dies if you are a Top Doc and you don’t do the right thing. Johnny Morris wasn’t young but he obviously was considered to be in no danger of pegging out imminently because he was about to star in a new TV series…

 

Beryl Corner was a committed Christian and an active member of Christ Church, Clifton. She was unmarried.

Clifton is the posh bit of Bristol, it houses the Top Docs and Bristol University.

The Ground Breaking Beryl:

The BBC News in June 1998, midway through the Waterhouse Inquiry and while the gang were busy trying to get me banged up in a secure institution, also shone the spotlight on Beryl in a feature on the terrible state of children’s care in the NHS in the 1930s, before Beryl revolutionised it. The BBC stated:

Post-war Britain concentrated its medicinal effort on new born babies; Britain’s second premature baby unit was set up at Bristol’s Southmead hospital, under the auspices of a leading paediatrician, Dr Beryl Corner. With a measly budget of £100 – enough for just six cots – Dr Corner and her team halved mortality rates for the babies in their care within a year of being established.

Which makes me wonder what the hospital had been doing to the babies before Beryl’s measly £100, was Dafydd employed?

Dr Corner also won fame and accolades for her profession when she successfully assisted in the delivery of the world’s first quadruplets to be born by Caesarean; the birth of the Good sisters became an international news story.

 

The births were regarded as a triumph for intensive care, especially since the fourth baby was not breathing when she was delivered. We had no resuscitation equipment then such as we know it now. But I had a sucker that I sucked with a rubber tube down the baby’s throat, and after about four or five minutes the baby cried and breathed; and she lived’ says Dr Corner.

OK, Beryl probably saved the baby’s life, that is a worthy action, but she did that in basically the way that it would have been done for decades previously. I’m not underestimating the value of Beryl, just trying to draw attention to the overblown account of Beryl changing the landscape of neonatology and paediatrics at that time. The BBC feature itself admitted that the factor which was most important in reducing the child mortality rate was the 1939 availability of the first anti-bacterial drugs, Sulphonamides, which were effective in cases of pneumonia. In 1944, Penicillin was used in cases of meningitis and in 1947, Streptomycin was available to use in cases of TB. Beryl had bugger all to do with the development of any of these drugs. In 1960, a vaccination to protect against Polio was introduced from the United States. That wasn’t down to Beryl either.

The BBC report starred two other Top Docs of Beryl’s vintage, Dr Leslie Temple and Dr Harold Everley Jones. Harold was ‘one of Britain’s first paediatricians’, who qualified in 1934, so Harold was one of those who gave Beryl such a hard time.

[ image: Harold Everley Jones: houses were hovels]

Harold remembered that ‘Poverty, poor diet and bad living conditions lay at the root of much childhood illness.’
The dosh was spent on Beryl rather than improved housing…

I stood in a house to which I was called and was amazed to see the wallpaper moving due to the bugs underneath. Many of these houses were little more better than hovels.” 

Beryl’s house in Clifton wasn’t heaving with bugs.

Harold Witcomb Everley Jones died in 2001 and his obituary appears on the Royal College of Physicians ‘Lines of the Fellows’ online:

Harold, known to his friends as ‘E J’, was a consultant paediatrician in Wolverhampton, West Bromwich and Dudley. He was born in London, where his father was a consulting engineer. His mother was a musician. He was educated at Winchester House, King’s School, Canterbury, and then St Thomas’s Hospital Medical School.

No bugs under the wallpaper for Harold. Trained at Tommy’s, the most elite of the London hospitals…

After junior appointments at St Thomas’s and at East Ham Memorial Hospital, he was made a consultant paediatrician to Victoria Hospital for Children, Tite Street, Chelsea, in 1938. He joined the Royal Army Medical Corps in 1939 and served in the Middle East, Normandy, Belgium and Germany… Following demobilization he decided to settle in the Midlands. In 1947, before the start of the NHS, he single handedly set up a children’s service, involving Bridgnorth, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Walsall and West Bromwich.

Where the embryonic organised abuse existed which flourished under Dafydd’s partners in the West Midlands, Professor Robert Bluglass and others from the 1960s onwards. See eg. posts ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’ and ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’.

In 1947 he was appointed a clinical lecturer in paediatrics at the University of Birmingham. In 1961, the university appointed him area director of postgraduate education. From 1968 to 1969 he was president of the Midland Paediatric Society.

Er – Bluglass et al were in business by then and by the 1970s kids in care in Birmingham were being sent to children’s homes in north Wales.

He kept fit by cycling. As a student he had played rugby for St Thomas’s. A bachelor, he retired to north Wales.

Well there’s a surprise.

He died of cardiac failure.

Don’t say the gang bumped Harold off as well lest he blabbed. Another obituary of Harold’s mentioned that after retirement he maintained close contact with his former colleagues in the West Midlands. The ones who sent all those kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales.

 

While I was searching for information about Harold, I came across two other Pioneering Lady Doctors who’s biographies caught my attention.

Dr Marcia Hall:

Marcia Hall, who died in 2000, worked as a paediatrician at Great Ormond Street Hospital, 1941-69. During those years, Great Ormond Street colluded with the abuse of children which was why Savile found life so good there. Audrey Callaghan was Chair of the Governors of GOSH during the late 1960s/70s and then spent many more years raising funds for GOSH. Jim Callaghan used his position as PM to assist. See eg. post ‘Cry The Beloved Country’.

Marcia qualified from Cambridge/King’s College Hospital in 1934, so she somehow became a paediatrician while being a Lady Doctor in a way that Beryl was unable to do so.

Marcia’s father died when she was young and she was supported at Cambridge by an uncle who would not at first allow her to study medicine. However, after her first year, he relented and she went on to become one of the earliest female clinical students at King’s College Hospital. She elected to join the firm of Sam Hall because he was the least fierce of the teachers.

The Top Docs who would soon be Playing Their Part In Nye’s NHS would all have been fierce.

She subsequently married him.

And nearly all of them assessed their female colleagues in terms of their shagability rather than their clinical skills. While that is an expected consequence of many interactions between colleagues, the Top Docs take the phenomenon to extremes.

During the war she was seconded as a dermatologist to the Canadian Army Hospital in Cuckfield. This post included genitourinary medicine, and her lack of any more than a rudimentary knowledge of dermatology combined with the wild nature of the clientele made this an interesting experience.

I’d like to hear more about this, but we won’t.

Marcia’s particular interest was in chest medicine, especially tuberculosis. She travelled to Scandinavia to study the new BCG vaccine and administered it to the children of the Royal Family. She always had a great interest in country life and especially riding, and retired to Brendon in north Devon where she and her husband did much to organise the building of the village hall.

A Doc to the Royals! Would it have been Carlo, Anne, Andrew and Edward to whom Marcia administered the BCG? It is likely that Marcia knew Wilfred and Dannie Abse, who both  knew Dafydd et al and facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring. They were of a similar vintage to Marcia, trained at King’s College Hospital and Dannie spent his career as a chest physician, specialising in TB. See post ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

Devon was Jeremy Thorpe country. Norman Scott lived in north Devon as well as Jeremy and the locals were fully aware of what Mr Thrope was doing. It was a Top Doctor in north Devon who was involved in ensuring that letters incriminating Mr Thrope which were in Norman’s possession were sold and burnt by someone who wanted to protect Mr Thrope. See post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’. Top Doctors are very good at knowing what is going on in their localities and they retain close relationships with other Top Doctors after retirement. Marcia never felt the need to comment while mud was being thrown at Norman by the media.

A descendant of Elizabeth Fry and the daughter of a clergyman, she retained a staunch Christian faith throughout her long life.

So Marcia almost certainly disapproved of Norman’s Lifestyle. Whereas Mr Thrope was a married man, the most intelligent, the prettiest politician, who could have become Prime Minister of this country or even President Of The World… Furthermore, Mr Thrope was married to Miriam, the ex-wife of Lilibet’s cousin, who stood next to Mr Thrope throughout his long and unnecessary ordeal…

Predeceased by her husband, [Marcia] leaves three children and seven grandchildren.

They’ll all defend the reputation of one of the first Lady Doctors.

 

Another Pioneering Lady Doctor of Beryl/Marcia’s generation was Margaret Elizabeth Lace (nee Morgan). Dr Lace was born in Dowlais, south Wales and qualified from Bristol in 1938. She was a consultant with the Family Planning Association.

After medical and surgical posts at Bristol Royal Infirmary, she became the general practitioner in Porthcawl during the war years. She then returned to Bristol and worked part time running antenatal and infant welfare clinics.

Dr Lace will have known the Top Docs in south Wales who were colluding with George Thomas’s sex offending as well as with the organised abuse in the region, which had got off the ground even by then. Dr Lace would also have known, or at least known of, the Abse family, because so many of the extended family were Top Doctors

Here she came face to face with the welfare and social problems confronting large families. Birth control became an important issue,

Dr Lace will have been of the opinion that birth control was a good thing for Poor People and might well have taken the view that it should be compulsory for them, but a choice for people of her own social class.

and Betty had further training under the auspices of the Family Planning Association. One of the family planning pioneers in Bristol, she became a member of the FPA Council and a recognised teacher in family planning at Bristol University. She also worked for the Bristol and South West Regional Blood Transfusion Service. Following retirement in 1984, she maintained an active interest in the affairs of her old school.

Betty will have known D.G.E. Wood’s Top Doc father and very probably Wood himself. Previous posts have explained how in the 1970s, the FPA were well aware that ‘family planning’ work involved prescribing the contraceptive pill to girls under the age of consent who were in care being sexually exploited or forced into sex work. The Top Docs dishing out the ‘family planning’ to those girls knew what the situation was. Previous posts have named some of those holding office with the FPA who were part of Dafydd’s network.

She celebrated her diamond wedding anniversary last August. She leaves a husband, Edward; two children; and six grandchildren.

They’ll all be ready to remember Betty’s Pioneering Career During which she Helped and some of them may well be Top Docs themselves. 

 

Dame Albertine Louise Winner (4 March 1907 – 13 May 1988) was a Top Doctor who was President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 1971-72. Winner served in the Dept of Health as its first female Deputy Chief Medical Officer, 1947-67. Here’s Albertine in her horn-rimmed glasses looking Shocked and Disgusted:

A photograph of Albertine Winner

Albertine Winner was born in London in 1907 and her early education was at the Francis Holland School at Clarence Gate in London. Francis Holland remained a popular option for the daughters of The Posh who helped Dafydd et al generations after Albertine. Ronnie Waterhouse ensured that his daughters got through the doors. The Headmistress, 1965-74, while Ronnie’s daughters were there, was Heather Brigstocke, the mum of the comedian Marcus Brigstocke. Heather Brigstocke had excellent knowledge of posh schools in London and she knew some of the people facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Heather received a peerage in 1990, the year in which Dafydd and the gang repeatedly perjured themselves in the High Court in an attempt to have me imprisoned (see post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’). Baroness Brigstocke sat as a Tory peer. Her first husband was a civil servant and her second husband was a Law Lord. In 2004, both Heather Brigstocke and her assistant were killed in Athens by a speeding driver. See previous posts.

Like Ben Elton, the offspring of another of Dafydd’s Little Helpers (see previous posts), Marcus is on the left and makes this clear during his gigs, but his loyalties became clear when he performed at a fund-raising gig for St David’s Hospice, Llandudno, an institution which was established by and is run by Dafydd’s gang, in response to yet another distress flare. See previous posts.

Albertine Winner gained a degree in Physiology from UCL, then studied medicine at UCH. After qualifying, Winner worked at the Elizabeth Garratt Anderson Hospital and the Mothers’ Hospital in Clapton. During WW II, she was promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel in the RAMC.  Winner also served as the consultant to the Women’s Services.

After the end of the war and on the eve of the emergence of the NHS, Winner joined the Dept of Health in 1947 as its first female Deputy Chief Medical Officer, a position in which she served for the next 20 years. So like Uncle Harry, Albertine was there at the very dawn of the NHS to see Nye’s vision put into practice with the Poor Being Helped. By the time that Albertine had stepped down as Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Gwynne had been happily lobotomising away for years and Dafydd was ready to go into business with John Allen and start up the conveyor belt for the production of child sex workers on a big scale. Sir Kenneth Robinson was Minister of Health and was being advised by Abel-Smith…

Sir George Godber was Deputy Chief Medical Officer, 1950-60. and Chief Medical Officer, 1960-73. Godber was yet another person who knew what was going on at the North Wales Hospital. When I wrote my earlier post ‘The Creme de la Creme’ about Godber, I presumed that it was him who was virtually solely responsible for protecting Dafydd and Gwynne, not realising that everyone at the top of the medical establishment and Gov’t was on board with them. Godber was  one of the team who planned the NHS, so like the rest of them he was untouchable and nothing could be said which might suggest that something dreadful had been permitted, let alone built into the NHS.

Listen to the sound of silence Poster | hoon_from_the_moon ...

Godber studied at New College, Oxford, so was highly likely to have been working for the security services. He was partly inspired to pursue public health by his Warden, the historian H.A.L. Fisher, who had been Lloyd George’s Education Secretary. Another of Godber’s mentors was a young New College don Richard Crossman… Godber did his clinical training at The London Hospital and qualified in 1933. He will have known of the organised abuse and the severe poverty in the area served by The London Hospital and dear old Godber just transferred it all over into the foundations of the NHS and left well alone. Godber worked in Birmingham during WW II, so he’ll have got to know many of those we know and love there as well.

Godber’s responsibilities weren’t just to the DHSS. His role as CMO also spanned the Home Office and the Dept of Education and Science and thus included responsibility for approved schools, remand centres, high security hospitals, prisons and other educational institutions. Godber knew about Bryn Estyn, Risley Remand Centre, Ashworth, Broadmoor and Rampton and the other total institutions over which Dafydd and the paedophiles had control, in which vulnerable people, including children, were battered, raped and not infrequently killed. It is a mark of how rotten the NHS is that Godber was still being described as a ‘saint’ until his death in 2009, having reached over 100 yrs old. He was in good nick and active until almost the very end. The great man and his reputation were a big umbrella under which many people sheltered.

As with Godber, Albertine’s responsibilities as Deputy CMO will have included approved schools, secure hospitals, prisons etc. That Lady Doctor did a great job of endorsing a truly appalling regime established by and run for the benefit of the worst sort of male sex offenders imaginable.

In 1967, Albertine Winner became a Dame and was also appointed the Linacre Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, a post she held until 1978. While serving in that position, Winner played a key role in developing postgraduate medical training posts for the Joint Committee on Higher Medical Training.

If Albertine became Dame Albertine, it suggests that Dafydd and Gwynne must have found themselves in the slurry again in 1967-68. Well there had been that business in 1966 with Dafydd summoning a fleet of coaches to the North Wales Hospital, loading a crowd of institutionalised, incredibly vulnerable patients onto them and placing the patients ‘in the community’ in B&Bs on the north Wales coast. The patients were subsequently found starving and covered in lice. Some will have died as well but no-one dared admit that, not even ‘The Times’, which reported the scandal. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Dafydd didn’t bother to warn anyone that he was going to do this, even the patients themselves. 1966.

In 1966, Dafydd was a leading figure in MIND; Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was the Minister of Health; another mate of Dafydd’s, Professor Brian Abel-Smith who had designed the flawed economic basis of the NHS, was still telling Ministers what to do; Godber was CMO. Lord Cledwyn, the MP for Anglesey and a close friend of the Windbag’s parents-in-law who was another big fan of Dafydd (see previous posts), was Secretary of State for Wales and George Thomas was his Minister. Of course no-one was going to give a bugger about Dafydd’s excesses, even when they’d reached the pages of the Thunderer, although the Thunderer took no interest in the patients who had been lobotomised because they’d refused to shag Dafydd’s rich and influential mates.

I need to introduce here yet another man in a High Place who was happy to allow Dafydd and Gwynne to pursue their life of crime unhindered: Sir Arnold France, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Health, 1964-68, the very same years that Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth was Minister of Health. From 1968, Arnold France served as Chairman of the Board of the Inland Revenue until his retirement in 1973. In 1973, France was Chairman of the Central Board of Finance of the Church of England. There is very little information about Sir Arnold available on the internet; I suspect that somebody who is aware of this blog knew what was coming and has cleansed the world of Arnold’s biographical details, although I do know that Sir Arnold died in 1998. In 1965 Walter Bird photographed Arnold’s for the National Portrait Gallery. Walter made, most appropriately, a ‘bromide print’.

I think that I might have met Sir Arnold’s son and I suspect that Arnold’s son may have been responsible for ensuring that nothing about his dad remains on the internet. Previous posts have described how Professor Duncan Tanner, an historian at Bangor University, died suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 51 yrs at the hands of Ysbyty Gwynedd in Feb 2010, after a minor operation judged to be low risk. Low risk if it’s not being performed at Ysbyty Gwynedd that is. Duncan was a Welsh Labour historian, he was the best in that field and he knew damn well which politicians were involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd and Gwynne’s branch of it. I was working with Duncan and I very much appreciated his help, but he was a dark horse and although he never let slip that he knew who was involved, I saw clues and I realised that he had seen clues that I knew something about it as well. The School of History at Bangor employed a number of academics with direct links to those who concealed the criminality of Dafydd’s gang: Professor Andrew Edwards was a policeman in north Wales while the police refused to investigate complaints; Dr Dinah Evans was married to Ron Evans, the crooked lawyer employed by Gwynedd County Council who orchestrated the whole cover-up at the north Wales level; and Nia Griffiths’s dad was a judge who colluded. I have no idea whether Duncan was Of The Paedophiles’ Friends himself, but when a memorial service was held for Duncan at Bangor University, Frances Jones, one of the crooked lawyers who assisted those we know and love, turned up in her capacity as a friend of Duncan. See post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’.

I have described previously how at Duncan’s memorial service, Frances Jones and others insulted Merfyn Jones, the VC, who had been under attack from the paedophiles’ friends since 2004 because he, his late wife and friend had spilt their pints. See previous posts eg. ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’. Like Duncan, Merfyn held a Chair in the School of History.

One person who spoke at Duncan’s memorial service was unknown to us at Bangor because he was a face from Duncan’s past, a friend of Duncan’s from Duncan’s days as a PhD student. This man explained that although he was a Tory and was doing a PhD on Conservative political history and Duncan was a Labour supporter from south Wales doing a PhD on Welsh Labour history, they became good friends. This man was a civil servant; he was a Dr France. I cannot remember his first name, but he talked about his daughter, Lizzie, who was at a posh girl’s school and had impressed the class by telling them that she knew Duncan Tanner, after Duncan’s name appeared in some material that the history class were using.

Would Dr France, Lizzie’s dad, like to make himself known? The Top Doctors have been killing people Dr France because your dad allowed the DHSS to run an elite paedophile ring for years and years. They almost certainly killed Duncan as well, they are still wiping out the witnesses after all this time. If you’re not careful Dr France you won’t be safe in any hospital yourself even if you Go Private. This is a very, very big problem and you should not be concealing evidence, no matter how much loyalty you feel towards your father. I can’t imagine that you would be very happy if Lizzie had her career wrecked and her friends murdered after she refused to have sex with two disgusting old men who were part of the gang who had supplied Richard Crossman and his mates with fresh meat ten years previously would you?

I received an e mail telling me that the man who spoke at Duncan’s memorial service Knows… I wasn’t given his first name, my correspondent probably presumed that I would remember it.

Duncan did his PhD at UCL; I think that his friend Dr France did his PhD at UCL as well. UCL was and is crawling with Top Docs who were involved in the Westminster Paedophile Ring…

After Albertine Winner retired from the medical profession in 1967, Cicely Saunders asked Albertine Winner for financial assistance in establishing the first modern hospice. See previous posts for information re Dame Cicely Saunders and the hospice movement. Winner was initially apprehensive but ‘soon saw its importance’ and helped Saunders establish St Christopher’s Hospice in Sydenham, London, the first hospice in the UK. Albertine supervised its construction and served as its Deputy Medical Director when it opened in 1967. Winner later became its Chairman in 1973 and President in 1985.

Dame Albertine died on 13 May 1988 in London, aged 81.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online of course paid tribute to Albertine:

In her early medical career she worked with and was much influenced by Sir Thomas Lewis and Sir Francis Walshe. Walshe gave her an abiding interest in neurology, which was finally of great help in developing palliative treatment of motor neurone disease at St Christopher’s Hospice when she returned to clinical medicine as a final end to her varied and most distinguished career.

she joined the RAMC in 1940, becoming lieutenant colonel and later consultant to the Women’s Services. This experience revealed her liking and aptitude for administration, and after a brief return to the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital she joined the Ministry of Health. Here she kept her intense interest in patients’ welfare, particularly in the chronic sick.

So she knew exactly how badly neglected and abused patients in long stay institutions like the North Wales Hospital Denbigh were. How did the Ely Hospital Scandal erupt in 1969 with the Dame, Sir George Godber, Sir Arnold France etc all keeping an eye on things?

She became deputy chief medical officer, the first woman to hold that office.

At this time, Sir Max (later Lord) Rosenheim persuaded her to become the College’s Linacre Fellow. She was not quite the first person to occupy this post… but Albertine was the first to serve for any length of time – eleven years -and she certainly set the standard for her successors. As, again, she was the first woman to serve as a College officer, she might be regarded as a feminist ice-breaker; she did break ice, not as a feminist but simply as an extremely competent and reliable administrator who succeeded in getting to the top in what was at the time very much a man’s world.

Let’s stop even being surprised that Lady Doctors of that time were not declaring themselves to be feminists. They were, simply, Posh Women, who had usually attended academic girls schools and often came from medical families. They were some of the most conservative, gender bound people in the UK. It was indeed a man’s world, it was specifically a Posh Man’s world and the Lady Doctors who got to the top did it by playing the posh man’s game by the posh man’s rules which very often involved concealing wrongdoing to make life easy for the posh men. That is what being a ‘competent and reliable administrator’ means in medicine. ‘They’re really good at hiding the shit’. It is that neanderthal. There were a very small number of Lady Doctors who took the men on in field such as obs and gynae and surgery; they succeeded because they were very, very hard women as well as having a good dose of poshness. I will discuss such an example later in this post…

As Linacre fellow, Albertine was responsible for developing the training posts that were to be recognized by the newly-formed JCHMT. She visited most of these posts herself until their number grew too great. She then appointed visiting teams to carry out the task, holding herself in reserve to lean on recalcitrant colleagues who were reluctant to accept the College’s recommendations.

So Albertine told other Top Docs to whom they were going to give those jobs. Nepotism and dirty deals were endemic in medicine long after Albertine’s death, so we can assume that Albertine herself dished out jobs on that basis.

She became DBE in 1967 as she retired, but this was but the beginning of yet another career as deputy medical director of St Christopher’s Hospice.

St Christopher’s will certainly have benefited from that DBE.

This interest began in 1961 when she heard of the plans for St Christopher’s, the first research and teaching hospice, and joined in a ward round at St Joseph’s Hospice. Her clinical acumen and personal interest in people in need was at once aroused

The clinical acumen and personal interest that had given the green light to Dafydd, Gwynne, Ely, etc

and she carried on a quiet campaign of advice and support for the Hospice from then on.

Albertine was busy behind the scenes, calling in favours…

It was typical of her that she should go on a refresher course in medicine before returning to clinical duties. As she said: ‘The moment I began to examine a patient my hands took over and I was back.’

No Top Doc ever admits in public to ‘oh bugger, I’d forgotten…I’m not up to it anymore.’ They do admit to this in private…

Albertine worked at St Christopher’s part-time from 1967-73, helping to establish both its clinical and administrative standards and fill the rest of her time with many other interests. She was on the council of the Disabled Living Foundation;

Oh God. Not that I’m surprised, the Top Docs who have been responsible for the misery and suffering are a must on the organisations and charidees which are now going to Change It because Something Must Be Done.

was one of a group of physicians who travelled to assess Issel’s controversial cancer clinic in Bavaria,

They always have a bit of advice for Johnny Foreigner as well. No-one tells Johnny Foreigner that pockets of that over which the White Man – and White Lady – has presided are as bad as the services provided by Johnny Foreigner.

and was an active member of the Medical Women’s Federation and its president in 1971. She retained her interest in the expansion of hospice work as part of a generally accepted clinical challenge. She was fond of describing it as ‘…just good medicine in a special setting.’

The special setting being one which is 100% run by paedophiles’ friends, not just substantially run by paedophiles’ friends.

She became chairman of St Christopher’s in 1973 and was elected president in 1985, and was also much involved in founding the North London Hospice, with its special Jewish interest and inter-faith connexions. Brought up in a Jewish home, she joined the Christian foundation of St Christopher’s as a ‘sympathetic agnostic’. In later years she returned to the faith of her fathers, fitting in as well as ever in the Hospice ‘community of the unlike’.

Previous posts and comments have discussed how Dafydd et al had many members of the Jewish community protecting them. Not because ‘Jews are child abusers’, but because Jewish people hold medicine and law in high esteem, as well as academia, the civil service etc. A lot of Jewish people are working in these fields and of course in finance, business and the media, as well as in politics. So abusers can have a party if they use their Jewish friends and relatives. An elite paedophile ring couldn’t make much headway if the only people assisting it were labourers or people on benefits… George Thomas had many friendships within the Jewish community in south Wales, although Thomas was a leader in the Methodist Church. The reason why Thomas liked Jewish people was that his pals the Abse family were running a paedophile/trafficking ring and the Abses were a high profile Jewish family full of doctors and lawyers. See post ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

People genuinely interested in inter-faith links discuss the ideological and cultural similarities between different faiths, I have published such material myself. If you’re running a huge international trafficking ring and you want your mycelia penetrating absolutely everywhere, you’ll use the same discourse. Don’t blame the Jews, or the Methodists, or the Catholics or the C of E, or even the Muslims, it’s the network of corrupt professional people who are the problem and the Top Docs are the biggest problem of all, because they’re the ones who ensure that the grass doesn’t get the pain killers or life-saving treatment. Or is declared mad.

Dame Albertine’s interests were as wide as her medical career. A perceptive observer of art, she built up a valuable collection of Japanese prints, and she was an enthusiastic opera lover. She played tennis for the university, and retained her interest in sport and travel.

Mycelia absolutely everywhere.

To some she appeared formidable, but to all she was kind, giving the best in sensitive and utterly reliable moral support.

Like so many, the old cow hid her lovely nature so effectively.

A superlatively good clinician,

She had spent most of her career as an administrator. Top Docs take the piss out of other Top Docs who became administrators, even administrators at the highest levels, because they are usually Docs who for whatever reason cannot do clinical work. I will expand on this further shortly.

she finally became a cooperative and unfailingly courteous patient, much loved by all who had the care of her…

The Top Docs are killing their own now… The Dame knew that if she wasn’t a co-operative and courteous patient, somehow the pain relief would not be sufficient and ooh we didn’t realise that the Dame needed to be taken to the loo or ‘dying luv? don’t make us laugh…’

This is no way to run a healthcare service. Most patients ARE nice people, but even if they are retired Top Doctors who have run a paedophile ring, they should not be denied good care. Yet we now have a situation in which Angels and Top Docs judge as to who is morally worthy of care and support when they are ill or elderly. The judgements are not sound, but they shouldn’t be made at all…

The Dame’s obituary for the Royal College of Physicians was written by Dame Cicely Saunders – who else? – and Sir Raymond Hoffenberg.

 

Dame Rosemary Rue was another Caring Lady Doctor who served as President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 1982-83. By that time, Mary Wynch had begun litigation against Dafydd and the gang and Dafydd’s mate Robert Bluglass was rewriting the Mental Health Act to reassure everyone that It Could Never Happen Again. Tony and Sadie Francis were in the process of being recruited to work in north Wales, along with some other Nice Young Doctors and Ysbyty Gwynedd, a Brand New Hospital for Gwynedd, was being built.

Ah you can’t complain, most of them really are good aren’t they!

As Alexei Sayle might have quipped as part of his famous ‘on-stage rants’ in the 1980s, ‘I’ve just been lobotomised by a sex offender, still, Mustn’t Grumble’.

Elsie Rosemary Laurence was born in 1928 in Hutton, Essex and moved with her family to London in 1933. She was evacuated during the Blitz to stay with relatives in Devon where she contracted TB and peritonitis. While she was convalescing, Rosemary decided on a career in medicine, entering the all-woman Royal Free Medical School in London in 1945. In 1950 Rosemary married Roger Rue, a pilot instructor of Belgian descent in the RAF. When Rosemary told the medical school Dean that she was changing her name, she was told that she could not stay at the Royal Free Medical School if she was married. I discussed in my post ‘Thought For The Day’ the revolutionary Lady Doctors and founders of the Royal Free who read Cosmo and went in hot pursuit of their G spots. Rosemary was instead accepted at Oxford University, qualifying in 1951 after taking the University of London exams.

Rosemary encountered many serious problems after qualifying, so many and so serious that it is extraordinary that Rosemary was ever able to follow any sort of career in medicine at all, let alone one which resulted in her becoming Dame Rosemary. I will discuss Rosemary’s bizarre early career in detail shortly.

In 1960, Rosemary she was named Assistant County Medical Officer for Hertfordshire and worked as a part-time paediatrician in Watford. In the 1980s, I became aware that Top Doctors who became administrators, even administrators at senior levels, were always Top Doctors who could not practice medicine. Gwynne the lobotomist was eventually given an administrative role before somebody employed him as a people trafficker in UCNW, because he was so fucking bad with patients. Gwynne’s obituary described him as a ‘competent and thoughtful administrator’. Just like Dame Albertine! Records were forged by Gwynne to conceal wrongdoing… Once Gwynne was sidelined into the role of Lord Haw-Haw, Dafydd was given responsibility for the patients, which says everything that needs to be said about Gwynne if Dafydd was the preferable option.

Top Docs running Health Authorities were all for some reason unable to work as clinicians, usually because they were hopeless and known to be. Perhaps in Rosemary’s case she was forced into admin because of the rampant bigotry towards her, which would have been even even greater because of her disability than her gender.

It was other Top Docs who refused to accept disabled people as equals. One of the Top Docs at the C&A Hospital in the 1950s and 60s, like Rosemary, had been crippled by polio. He could walk, but did so with a pronounced limp. His son told me that when on a visit to the C&A, the then Health Minister Enoch Powell demanded to know what ‘that cripple’ was doing working in the hospital. I can well believe that Enoch Powell did say that, there was massive hostility towards disabled people at that time, even if the disability was just a ‘gammy leg’ and the medical establishment, including Uncle Harry’s NHS, shared that bigotry.

Now for irony after irony. The disabled Top Doc at the C&A was one of those colluding with patient abuse and the trafficking ring. After the gang declared war on Merfyn, the VC of Bangor University in 2004, the son of that disabled Top Doc was by then a retired member of staff from Bangor University. He was part of the contingent who were busy trying to overthrow Merfyn. While he worked at Bangor University, the Top Doc’s son had served as the AUT rep. He had defended some worthy people, but he had also fought the corner of some members of the gang who should never have been allowed to remain in their posts. This AUT rep was not as dim as the gwerin, he will have known what they were up to. He also maintained that Carlo was bisexual and he should know, what with his dad having facilitated the gang who supplied Carlo’s er friends with sex workers.

Enoch Powell had declared his intention to close down the North Wales Hospital and every asylum in Britain after visiting the place in 1961 because he was so appalled at what he saw. Powell returned to London and made his famous ‘Water Towers’ speech in which he described the oppressive nature of the asylums and the waste of human life within and explained that he would be ordering an asylum closure programme. It never happened. After that speech, Powell never ever returned to the subject of asylums. According to the archivist responsible for the Powell papers, after the Water Towers speech, there are no further mentions of asylums or psychiatry in Powell’s papers.

Powell’s intended asylum closure was part of the wider ‘Hospital Plan’ which was laid before Parliament on 23rd January 1962. This also proposed the development of 90 new hospitals from scratch and the upgrading of 134. The Hospital Plan went out for consultation with the Top Docs and as usual, it was soon realised that it would cost vastly more to implement than at first thought. In 1966 the plan was revised as the Hospital Programme and parts of it went ahead. The part that did not go ahead was the closure of the asylums. But then someone back in the early 1960s when Powell was still Minister of Health told Powell to drop that subject and never return to it.

By the time that the plan had been revised as the Hospital Programme, Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson had become Minister of Health. Powell served as Minister of Health, July 1960-Oct 1063, under Harold Macmillan, during the Profumo Affair. Previous posts have discussed the role of Dafydd and his predecessors in the Profumo Affair.

Powell was succeeded as Minister of Health by Anthony Barber, Oct 1963-64, under Alec Douglas-Home. Barber later served as Chairman of the Conservative Party, 1967-70 and then as Chancellor of the Exchequer, 1970-74, under Heath. Barber had worked for the security services during WW II and was a barrister, a member of Inner Temple. Other members of Inner Temple include Lord Michael Havers, whom it has now been admitted blocked the prosecution of members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring when Havers was Attorney General (see previous posts); Michael Havers’s sister, Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, who’s talents were put to good use when she concealed the havoc that Dafydd’s partners-in-crime caused in Cleveland in 1987 (see previous posts, including ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’); Sir Cecil Havers, the High Court judge and father of Michael and Elizabeth.

As any fule kno, two different species cannot mate and produce fertile offspring. As far as I can find out, Lawyers corruptensis have not produced fertile offspring with Very Rich Owners Of Supermarkets Who Are Donors To Political Parties, but if any readers know differently, please enlighten me, because it’ll be a biological first and the world of science needs to know about it.

 

Anthony Barber left front line politics in Oct 1974 and received a peerage in January 1975 as Baron Barber. Anthony Barber served as Chairman of Standard Chartered Bank, 1974-87, where future PM John Major was his personal assistant. John Major who was the PM who oversaw the enormous cover-up that was the Waterhouse Inquiry. It was also while John Major was PM that Mary Wynch was finally ruined by Michael Howard at the Home Office, although Mary had proven and won her case. See previous posts.

In 1987, Barber was appointed to be a Deputy Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, part of Jimmy Savile’s crime empire. Barber was also a director of BP, 1979-88. He visited  Nelson Mandela in prison, and was a member of the Franks Committee that investigated the Falklands War (see previous posts). In 1991, Lord Barber became chair of the RAF Benevolent Association’s appeal for the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, which raised £26 million. Barber was one of those who benefited as a result of Macmillan’s ‘Knight of the Long Knives’ in July 1962.

Barber served as the Tory MP for Doncaster, 1951-64 and then for Altrincham and Sale, 1965-74. Doncaster was on the territory of Jimmy Savile Central and Altrincham and Sale was on the north Wales/Cheshire turf of Dafydd’s gang. The bent barrister George Carman QC, who was assisting Dafydd’s gang and Savile, as well as the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring, lived in the Altrincham and Sale area until he moved to London in 1979 after successfully defending Mr Thrope at the Old Bailey. Some of the bent police officers and other corrupt professional people involved with the gang lived in the same area. See eg. posts ‘Top of the Cops’ and ‘A Stalker’s Network’. Barber was Chairman of Redfearn National Glass, 1967-70, with which his wife Jean’s family was connected. Barber’s brothers Noel was a well-known journalist and novelist and his brother Kenneth became Secretary of Midland Bank.

David Wyn Williams, Chairman of the North Wales Business Club, who died a few days ago, was formerly the Regional Director of the Midland Bank in north Wales. I was told for years that Dafydd’s gang had solicitors and bank managers on board and put people out of business who crossed their path. Some five years ago I saw documents in relation to one person who had spilt the paedophiles’ pints who, after years of running a successful business, found themselves in dire straits. This person knew that at least one bank manager had broken the law in his dealings with him, so he took advantage of a commercial lawyer friend who was visiting from Australia. The lawyer friend spent a few hours going through documentation and could only draw one conclusion: that the wrongdoing was so great that everybody involved was on board with it. Those involved were Gwynedd County Council, three different firms of solicitors in Gwynedd and HSBC, formerly known as the Midland Bank.

 

Anthony Barber died in Suffolk in 2005. Suffolk and Essex were the location of a long-standing abuse ring with which Rab Butler colluded. It involved Dr John W. Paulley and his wife Deirdre. The Hervey family seat is in Suffolk and the notorious John Jermyn Hervey aka Lord Bristol who died youngish after a life of class A drugs, rent boys and HIV spent most of his life in Suffolk. John’s brother Nicholas died young while in the care of Top Docs; Nicholas was very different to his brother but he knew names and details. Before John Allen opened his first children’s home in north Wales, he lived in Suffolk. See post ‘The Vermin Club’.

Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson succeeded Anthony Barber as Minister of Health, Oct 1964-Nov 1968. Robinson served as President of the National Association for Mental Health (MIND) during the 1960s/early 70s, although all mention of Robinson has now disappeared from MIND’s website. Robinson succeeded Rab Butler as President of MIND, Rab having been appointed the first President in 1946. The Chair of MIND, 1963-69, was Lord Balniel and the Vice-Chair was Lady Adrian, 1962-66. There was then a vacancy for the position of Vice-Chair until 1967, when Dr David Clark took up the post and remained until 1975. The Chief Exec of MIND, 1951-64, was Mary Applebey. Lady Juliet Bingley was Chair, 1978-84. Tessa Jowell was Deputy Director of MIND, during the 1970s, at the time when paedophiles’ rights activists were giving sessions at MIND conferences. All of these people knew what Dafydd and Gwynne, as well as their colleagues at St George’s, the Maudsley and other hospitals who were running linked gangs were doing. Rab Butler went back such a long way that he colluded with the organised abuse that gave rise to Dafydd et al. I have blogged in detail in previous posts about Rab, the Bingleys and Tessa Jowell, as well as Dafydd’s mate Professor Hugh Freeman who served as Vice-Chair of MIND when Dafydd and Tony Francis were In Need, but I still have more digging to do re  the Ancients such as Lord Balniel, Lady Adrian etc. Of course Dafydd’s pal Lord David Ennals held a number of senior roles at MIND throughout the 1970s and 80s…

 

Powell made the Water Towers speech to the National Association for Mental Health in March 1961, when Dafydd’s mates were well on the way to colonising MIND completely. No wonder Powell dropped the subject and never returned to it. Powell would have had good reason to do so when it was explained to him that MIND was a cover for organised abuse, including the Westminster Paedophile Ring, because Powell has been named as someone who was abusing children/young people. Powell was the maverick MP for Wolverhampton South West, 1950-74, who famously spent time raising his own concerns and those of his constituents re immigration. Immigration of non-white people to be specific. He did not mention the organised abuse of kids and vulnerable people in his constituency, which was carried out by partners of Dafydd’s gang. Powell was notorious for declaring war on his former colleagues in the Tory Party over Europe – he was an anti-European – and he left the Tory Party in 1974. He served as the Ulster Unionist MP for South Down, 1974-87. Powell knew all about the elite paedophile ring at Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast but didn’t mention it, although he’d have finished off all of his political enemies if he had…

So why did Enoch Powell of Suspected Gay Paedophilia, who served as an MP in N Ireland, not breathe a word about the paedophile ring at Kincora which was alleged to involve Sir Anthony Blunt, Lord Louis Mountbatten, senior members of the British Armed Forces as well as Whitehall and Westminster figures, when by doing so he could have landed such an effective blow on so many of those whom he loathed and wanted to see out of office?

Powell in his garden in Belgravia, London, in 1986. Just down the road from Sir Peter Morrison’s house. In the heart of the swathes of Belgravia owned by the late Duke of Westminster, Carlo’s close friend. The Duke owned estates in Cheshire to which boys from Bryn Estyn were taken for ‘work experience’ after which they refused to return. Carlo’s friend the 6th Duke had spent his early years on the family estate in N Ireland, which was the main residence of the 5th Duke, who served as an MP for a constituency in N Ireland. See previous posts. Some months ago I received an e mail informing me that as a child, Sir Peter Morrison had been used sexually by the 5th Duke. The e mail contained information suggesting that the writer had considerable knowledge of the Duke’s family and the Morrisons.
In August 1979 Lord Mountbatten was blown up and killed while at his holiday home in Sligo. It was for years attributed to the IRA targeting a member of the British Royal Family for simply being Royal. More recently there have been allegations that Mountbatten was murdered because of his involvement in the paedophile ring based at Kincora and the murder may not have been the work of the IRA. The involvement of rogue members of the security services are under suspicion. They were fighting like ferrets in a sack, what with some helping Dafydd in their capacity as the Secretary of State for the DHSS while dining on gulls eggs and claret at Brooks’ club, others working hard to get rid of Harold Wilson and eventually replace him with Thatch, some of them planning to overthrow the Gov’t if Wedgie-Benn ever became PM and some suspected of killing people who were abusing children.

NB: C or M or Dickwit. There was only one flaw with your Cunning Plan. As the whole bloody lot of them were too frightened to challenge the Top Doctors who were running the abuse ring, it didn’t really matter whom you installed as PM did it?

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Powell lost his seat to the Social Democratic and Labour Party in 1987 but remained involved in politics. He supported Thatch’s anti-European stance and on 16 May 1994, Powell spoke at the Bruges Group. Professor Richard Howarth of UCNW, the agricultural economist who worked in the most dysfunctional, incompetent Dept of Agriculture of any UK university but nonetheless became an adviser to Thatcher after Brown and I refused to drop our complaints about Gwynne the lobotomist et al, was involved with the Bruges Group. See previous posts for info re Richard Howarth and his mates Richard Body MP and Professor Terry Thomas.

Enoch Powell suffered from Parkinsons in his final years, but he remained active, engaged and writing. He was hospitalised several times as a result of a succession of falls. A few hours after his final admission to hospital, he asked where his lunch was. On being told that he was being fed intravenously, he remarked, “I don’t call that much of a lunch”. These were his last recorded words. On 8 February 1998 Powell died aged 85 at the King Edward VII Hospital for Officers in Westminster. His study of the Gospel of John remained unfinished.

Powell died two months after Ronnie Waterhouse finished hearing the evidence from former kids in care in north Wales who were denounced as liars by everyone. Ronnie began writing his Report at the beginning of 1998.

The Chair of the Trustees of the King Edward VII Hospital for Officers was/is Lord Simon Glenarthur. (The hospital is now known as King Edward VII’s Hospital Sister Agnes.) Glenarthur was/is a Director of the MDU, the MDU which supplied Dafydd and the Drs Francis with legal advice with regard to obtaining High Court injunctions against me and then seeking to have me imprisoned for allegedly breaching those injunctions although the MDU knew that Dafydd and the Drs Francis were perjuring themselves, forging documents and planting evidence. Simon Glenarthur was a junior Minister in the Dept of Health, June 1983-March 1985, when havoc reigned in north Wales and the security services came after Brown, me and our friends. It was Glenarthur who was responsible for carrying out Thatch’s orders to purchase blood products from the US for NHS use, although the British Gov’t had been told by the Top Docs that these products were infected with Hep B. They were also infected with HIV and thousands of NHS patients became infected as a result, many of whom have now died. Glenarthur might not have understood the consequences of using those blood products, but the Top Docs did and they did not warn the public. They just ensured that they and their families didn’t receive the infected blood products.

Now don’t you worry dear, oops sorry, I mean Mr Powell, we’ll look after you.

  • Death with syringe stock vector. Image of syringe, medical ...

Glenarthur is a Military man who has served as/is the Director of numerous companies and who has held many senior roles in the British Army. I expect rather more of people who hold high rank in the British Army, Simon Glenarthur is a disgrace. See previous posts for the many pies in which Glenarthur’s fingers are to be found and for the bottomless pit of slurry over which he presided at the Dept of Health. After joining in the death and destruction there, Glenarthur was a junior Minister in the Home Office, 27 March 1984- 10 September 1986, while the Home Office colluded with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang.

The 6th Duke of Westminster was also a man who held high rank in the British Army and who knew Glenarthur.

Lord Simon, if you know anything about the unexpected and untimely death of Brown’s dad, Col Keith Brown, during the Waterhouse Inquiry, with whom you might well have rubbed noses what with Col Brown having met some pretty disgusting people at events such as Buck House garden parties and TA dos, please let us know. Brown thinks it was the Top Docs wot dun it again, the only way that they could have got Keith would be via the tablets that he was taking for minor conditions. For God’s sake Glenarthur, Col Brown was on an IRA hit list in the 1970s, he hobnobbed with Chief Constables etc and His Own bumped him off.

 

To return to the Pioneering Lady Doctor, Rosemary Rue. Her territory extended to Hertfordshire, which was where Lady Juliet Bingley and her family who did so many favours for Dafydd and the gang lived.

In 1965, Rue was offered the job of Senior Assistant Medical Officer for the Oxford region, running that region’s Health Authority. In the early 1960s ‘new money was allocated by the government to rebuild the crumbling medical system’ in the UK. Dr Rue ‘ensured that Oxford got a fair share’. I very much doubt that Oxford was ever in any danger of not getting a fair share of the dosh from Sir Kenneth Robinson’s Hospital Programme, particularly as Oxford was the location of, you’ve guessed it, organised abuse. The abuse of children in care at Oxford was concealed by senior social worker Barbara Kahan and her husband psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan. Babs was part of a network of people who colluded with abuse and at least two of Babs’s colleagues, Louis Minister and Peter Righton, were abusing children themselves. Babs had been Minster’s manager and between 1975 and 1984, Minster worked for Richmond County Council, becoming Director of Social Services. See previous posts. Peter Righton was a social work academic who worked at Keele University and at institutions in Malta, who used his work to advocate sexual relationships between adults and children. See previous posts. Babs was appointed as a Gov’t children’s social work adviser to Sir Keith Joseph, Secretary of State for the DHSS under Heath and Babs remained as a Gov’t adviser as well as an adviser to children’s charidees etc until into the 1990s. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’.

My post ‘R.I.P. Julia Grant And Many More’ supplied details of the network of paedophiles’ friends who were related to and friends/colleagues of Dr Cynthia Phillips, who ended her own distinguished career as the Principal Medical Officer for Oxfordshire Health Authority. Cynthia was the daughter of Lennox Broster, one of the Top Docs who was instrumental in developing a new speciality for the gang’s branch at Charing Cross Hospital, that of Expertise In Transgender Matters. Broster and his pals were completely insensitive to the distress of patients ill at ease with their gender, but they were really brilliant at selling gender reassignment surgery to patients from across the globe who had a lot of dosh… I haven’t yet accessed the dates of Cynthia’s occupancy of the Top Job in Oxfordshire, but from what I have read, she was probably in that post during the 1970s.  She will have definitely known Rosemary Rue.

In 1972 Rosemary Rue became one of the founders of the Faculty of Community Health (now the Faculty of Public Health), which brought together academic bodies such as the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, community health Top Docs and organisations such as the Public Health Laboratory Services (PHLS). She served as the PHLS Regional Medical Officer from 1973–84, and Regional General Manager from 1984−88.

The PHLS while Rosemary was a Senior Manager for them was in a dreadful state and the general public were never ever told. There was a severe shortage of staff because the pay was so bad – the pay really was bad, much worse than that of Angels – and mistakes were common because chaos reigned. The staff who could bear to stay in the service on a long term basis were members of unions who’s reps were using their knowledge of the wrongdoing of the Top Doctors to exert political muscle and build their own careers. Ken Livingston was a rep of one of the unions involved. The PHLS was in a very sorry state in places like London, Oxford, Cambridge and Bristol; elsewhere it was ludicrous. As ever within the NHS, unions and cadres of staff all blackmailed and bullied each other and rational people just left those jobs when it became clear that this was far more than a little local difficulty.

In her last few years, Dame Rosemary continued to take an active interest in health service matters, despite both breast and colon cancer. She died, aged 76, at her cottage in Stanton St John, Oxfordshire in Dec 2004, aged 76. She was survived by her two sons.

The obituary supplied for Dame Rosemary’s on the Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online also tells us that:

Rosemary Rue had an enormous influence on medicine and the health service, both within the Oxford region (Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire) and nationally.

Rosemary will have known about the neglectful, lying psychiatrists at St Andrew’s Hospital, Northampton, whom many people believe were responsible for a serious miscarriage of justice in 1985 (see post ‘Family Annihilation’).

She stayed at the ORHB when it became the Oxford Regional Health Authority (ORHA) in the mid 1970s, and became regional medical officer. Subsequently, in 1983, she was appointed as its first regional general manager when these posts were created following the Griffiths report on NHS management (1983). She was the only woman and the only doctor to be appointed to one of these 14 powerful positions.

The Griffiths Report led to Thatcher’s ‘reforming’ of the NHS. It simply involved creating a new cadre of highly paid powerful managers, many of whom were the deeply corrupt not very able pen pushers who had previously been called administrators. Their job titles changed, their pay rocketed and the civil war between them and the Top Docs reached new heights. The two groups had never liked each other, but giving Alun Davies and Keith Thomson in Gwynedd huge salaries and grandiose job titles was absolutely not a solution to the criminality of Dafydd and the Docs… See previous posts. If Rosemary Rue was given one of those senior managers jobs that Thatch created in the wake of the Griffiths Report, Rue was definitely being used to cover up an Everest of crap in Oxfordshire. Rue was not the ‘only woman and only doctor’ to bag one of those jobs because she was as Marvellous as the Queen Mother, it was because she was a useful idiot and a bit of good PR, ooh a Lady Doctor too!

Amid the genocide in north Wales, some Nice Young Doctors arrived from Oxfordshire. One was Richard Tranter – his wife Siobhan Tranter, a Lovely Young Nurse arrived with him – and another was Dr Mike Jackson, a clinical psychologist. Richard and Mike Jackson weren’t insane like Dafydd or utterly stupid like so many of the Top Docs in north Wales, but after a few years it became obvious to a number of people, including me, that Richard and Mike were just using their greater ability and nicer manners to conceal the wrongdoing, the abuse and neglect and research fraud even more effectively. Richard scarpered for New Zealand a few years ago when he heard that I had called lawyers in, acquired my records and would be publishing as soon as I could. Previous posts have provided details of Richard, Siobhan and Mike’s activities, including that time when Richard did all that he could to persuade me to take a combination of drugs which he knew were neurotoxic and would have resulted in serious damage to my health and possibly death…

Richard and Mike didn’t know this but there was a student at Bangor University some 10 years ago who’s brother was a clin psy in Oxfordshire and he told her that there was an abuse ring in operation there, it had been in existence a long time and that because all of the ‘professionals’ were concealing it, he was going to resign.

There’s not only the reputation of the Dreaming Spires to consider, but what about these Oxfordshire politicians?

Lord Patten of Barnes is quite used to bombs exploding around him wherever he goes, but can he explain why Oxford University gave a home to Professor Mark Williams after Williams invented Mindfulness when he worked with Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and why Lady Lavender Patten of Barnes was Patron of Mark Williams’s Oxford Mindfulness Centre while her husband was Chancellor of the University employing Mark Williams?

 

Rosemary Rue’s most enduring legacy is almost certainly the changes she brought about which enabled women doctors to develop careers at the same time as having a family. In the Oxford region she set up a variety of part-time training schemes and ‘retainer arrangements’ which allowed women to take maternity leave without sacrificing all hope of returning to a career path.

Bugger the abuse and neglect of patients, it’s our own careers that are important.

In order to do this she had to persuade and cajole local consultants and the medical Royal Colleges to support her.

They won’t have supported her out of the kindness of heir hearts or because she won them over with arguments based on fairness and equity. There will have been dirty deals behind the scenes which will have involved agreeing to remain silent about malpractice and wrongdoing and certain people gaining promotion, people who might even have been working in institutions hundreds of miles away from Rosemary…

These schemes soon gained wider attention, and eventually they became standard practice all over the country. In 1953 Rosemary Rue had lost her job as a doctor simply for being married.

Yes, it was disgusting, but it didn’t result in Rosemary challenging the worst injustices.

Forty years later, not only were such attitudes and practices confined to the pages of history, but largely thanks to Rosemary Rue’s efforts, women medical graduates could chose to pursue any branch of medicine and know that they would not be at a disadvantage.

Try telling that to women in surgery, even today. They are still discriminated against, this is not an issue that has been hyped up by Millie Tants, women have a hard time in surgery. Rosemary also ignored the shocking levels of racism which are endemic in medicine and as for class discrimination, that is so common that it is accepted as part of life.

Rosemary Rue was elected president of the Medical Women’s Federation in 1982.

Another of her legacies is the development of health services for Milton Keynes. Milton Keynes was designated as a ‘new town’ in 1967 and over the next 25 years grew from a green field site to a town with a population of some 200,000. Rosemary Rue’s vision was pivotal throughout this period in planning and implementing appropriate health services for the new town, as well as balancing those in the surrounding areas.

Brown worked in Milton Keynes for a few years. Not only did Brown spot the usual horrors in the health and care services in Milton Keynes but one of his colleagues at Milton Keynes was shafted by one Professor Fergus Lowe, while they were both working on a project for Unilever. Fungus was based at Bangor University for his entire career and he built his empire on overthrowing Dafydd’s influence in the School of Psychology and then blackmailing everyone whom Fungus knew had colluded with Dafydd and the gang. Including some big wigs at Unilever. See eg. ‘Feet In Chains’.

Those who were lucky enough to work with Rosemary will always be grateful for the experience. She had a quiet determination and shrewd political judgement, and usually managed to achieve her objectives.

Dame Rosemary would have been able to explain why so many rather mediocre people became Professors at Oxford University after discovering what Dafydd et al were doing.

The Lord Patten of Barnes
Chris Patten -2008-10-31- (cropped).jpg

She had a broad knowledge of health services, and was equally at home discussing the latest surgical technology or the provision of community mental health services for the elderly.

I’d have liked Rosemary to have shown me that ‘provision’, because in most areas of the UK, that provision consisted of the elderly mentally ill sitting in a room in their own urine being ignored for hours on end. Which was what had happened to them before Dame Rosemary revolutionised healthcare when they were housed in places like Ely Hospital that caused public outrage in 1969 (see post ‘All The Ingredients Of A Scandal’).

The NHS itself expected mental health patients to sit in their own urine. How do I know? Because in the 1990s, every chair for patients in the day centre at the Hergest Unit was one of those chairs coated in very thick brightly coloured plastic to withstand industrial incontinence. My mate with a sense of humour thought that it was hysterical; we used to do our fieldwork in Ysbyty Gwynedd and point out all the surreal things to each other, including the Chairs For The Incontinent. There wasn’t anyone who was incontinent attending the day centre because it wasn’t for elderly people, but we got the Incontinence Chairs anyway. Furthermore, the day centre was part of the Hergest ‘flagship’ Unit, completed in 1993. So a supply of Incontinence Chairs was prioritised. My friend and I were sitting on the Incontinence Chairs laughing at the concept when my friend first saw Dr David Healy. Dr Healy arrived in Gwynedd in about 1991, but my friend didn’t experience life as an Empowered Service User until 1993. David Healy was a Nice Young Doctor with a sort of trendy floppy hair style as opposed to Dafydd and he had quite a following among female patients. So there we were rolling about laughing at the Incontinence Chairs and Dr Healy walked past at speed and my mate yelled out ‘Christ, Cliff Richard’s turned up here now’. I had worked with Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain of the People Trafficking Ring at St George’s Hospital Medical School by then; Chamberlain was mates with Cilla, who was of course mates with Cliff, but I didn’t know about the Cliff connection in those days.

The NHS is not the only institution to follow a policy of ‘one size fits all and it’s incontinence provision’. Aston University did as well, when Brown was an undergrad. All the mattresses in the halls of residence at Aston had plastic covers which could not be removed and Brown used to say ‘oh yes, we students are an incontinent lot’.

 

She worked hard, seldom leaving her office in the ORHA building (now officially called the Rosemary Rue building) before 7.30 pm and often a great deal later. Those who were still in the building would often put their heads around the door later in the evening in the hope of being rewarded with some good conversation about the issues of the day and a glass of cold dry sherry.

Rosemary Rue went on to a very active ‘retirement’ in 1988. At various times she was president of the Faculty of Community Medicine (now Public Health), president of the BMA (from 1990 to 1991),

So Rosemary was President of the BMA while my career was being ruined at St George’s, while another witness from my UCNW days was shafted when he was working for Big Pharma, while the BMA were giving Dafydd, Tony Francis and other members of the gang advice on how to refuse to respond to my complaints and instead prosecute me on the basis of their perjury. See previous posts eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. Then there were the paedophile rings facilitated by Top Docs in north Wales and St George’s, as well as the Maudsley… the bodies of kids in care and psych patients turning up across north Wales… The hundreds of complaints that were ignored…

professor of public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (when it was going through some difficult times and needed a steady hand),

Oh just call Rosemary… The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine unlawfully withdrew a place on an MSc course that they had offered me in 1986. That place disappeared after I told Dr D.G.E. Wood that I’d received it. Since I began this blog I received info letting me know that was not a coincidence.

chairman of the Margaret Pyke Foundation and of the Wyndham Housing Association, and a vice president of the Alzheimer’s Society. She was actively involved with the Family Welfare Association and with the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries.

When I lived in Harringay during 1986-87, I volunteered for the Family Welfare Association after seeing adverts locally. The project was supporting women who were recovering from severe depression and I discovered that all the volunteers, like me, had volunteered on the grounds of ‘well I was just abandoned when that happened to me, surely there must be a better way’. The social worker who led the project seemed very nice, not barking mad a la Gwynedd Social Services, but I didn’t continue with the volunteering. Like some of the other volunteers, I found myself hassled by ne’r do wells. I know now that those hassling me at least were linked to a gang in north London which were linked to Dafydd et al. Dafydd had named contacts in Haringey Social Services, which were of course a by-word for abuse and neglect. See previous posts. Of course, the social worker for the FWA will have been well aware of what the NHS and Social Services in Haringey were doing to people. It might have been why she preferred to work for the FWA, but as with those working for charidees in north Wales, she would not have remained in even that job if she had dared blow the whistle on any of it…

 

She was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1989.

A reward for the loyal years of service. In the spring of 1989, I began my job at St George’s, which I have been told recently was a carefully planned trap to lure me in and then get me out of medical research for good.

You’re disgusting really aren’t you Dafydd?

In her last few years Rosemary continued to take an active interest in health service matters, despite having to deal with both breast and colon cancer, which she did with immense courage.

She’ll have had no choice, the research had all been faked for years so the treatment didn’t work and as Rosemary knew herself, the labs were in chaos – she was after all responsible for it – so cancer was often not diagnosed as early as it should have been.

She died at the age of 76, at the cottage in Stanton St John which had been her home for nearly 40 years, supported by her sons and grandchildren, of whom she had always been immensely proud.

Dame Rosemary’s obituary in the Indie provided yet more titbits.

Here’s the summary of her glorious career in white collar crime: Elsie Rosemary Laurence, medical practitioner: born Hutton, Essex 14 June 1928; Assistant County Medical Officer and part-time paediatrician, Hertfordshire 1960-65; hospital doctor, Oxfordshire 1965-73; Assistant Regional Medical Officer, Oxford Regional Hospital Board (later Oxford Regional Health Authority) 1965-71, Senior Assistant Medical Officer 1971-73, Regional Medical Officer 1973-88, Regional General Manager 1984-88; CBE 1977; seconded as Professor of Community Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine 1980-82; President, Medical Women’s Federation 1982-83; President, Faculty of Community Medicine 1986-89; DBE 1989; President, British Medical Association 1990-91; FRCS 1994; married 1950 Roger Rue (two sons; marriage dissolved); died Stanton St John, Oxfordshire 24 December 2004.

she decided on medicine as a career. This desire was fuelled by frequent visits to an aunt who ran a girl guide company among underprivileged children in Hackney…

Hackney had long since been the site of organised abuse and it became part of Dafydd’s business empire from the 1960s onwards… Top Docs, social workers, Councillors and politicians in the East End were fully on board as was Lord Elwyn-Jones, who was the vehicle between Wales and the East End. See previous posts. Peter Shore MP was particularly useful, as was his wife Elizabeth Shore, who was a Top Doc and served as Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England, 1977-84. Dafydd’s mate Lord David Ennals was Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1976-79. See post ‘R.I.P. Julia Grant and Many More’.

She was in a clinic on the day in 1948 when the National Health Service started, and the consultant (male) finished his clinic and announced that he was leaving rather than practice socialised medicine…

Ah the doctors they resigned! Call Uncle Harry, Julian Tudor-Spart, Santo Jeger and the many other pals of Dafydd who were Committed To The Poor. See previous posts.

In Oxford she hit a brick wall as the town’s hospitals didn’t employ married women. She found a job at an out-of-town long-stay hospital in Cowley Road

It will have been a truly grim asylum, or institution for the elderly or learning disabled.

when she didn’t mention the marriage or the baby. She employed a nanny at home to look after her new-born son and shared a flat adjoining the hospital with another doctor, rushing home in her time off to breast-feed.

So Rosemary was the sort of Top Doc who rocked up at the North Wales Hospital; living on the site of a dreadful institution, having taken the job because she couldn’t get anything else and was unable to make any difference to the lives of her patients.

Her flatmate, who was male and Ceylonese, helped her in so far as he could. 

Shades of Denbigh again; entrenched racism in medicine meant that overseas graduates tended to end up working in such places.

The hospital’s senior doctors were inspirationally committed to patients and ruthless at disregarding red tape.

This was Dafydd’s line. All laws were flagrantly breached while he Helped Inspirationally. By illegally imprisoning the victims of a sex abuse ring in a dungeon.

Dr Lionel Cosin got bedridden patients back on their feet, and rehabilitated long-stay patients who had been written off.

I know that this is unlikely to have been true, unless of course Lionel’s patients, in the spirit of north Wales, were not irretrievable and had been refused appropriate care by abusive colleagues. After all, I had manic depressive insanity which only returned when Dafydd’s mates unlawfully imprisoned me. People were gobsmacked at my miraculous recoveries between my bouts of manic depressive insanity, when I completed postgrad degrees and held down professional jobs. Then WHOOPS, my manic depressive insanity reared its head again. Just as I gathered more evidence and made further complaints about Dafydd et al. I will do some digging re Lionel.

He also let Rosemary spend an afternoon a week taking a psychiatry course.

Instead of having her hair done. It sounds like the CBT or Counselling Courses that the Angels do before it is stated that they are Trained.

It all ended when someone spilled the beans about the husband and the baby. She was sacked on the spot. The Ceylonese doctor was hit – by a senior doctor – for his presumption in sharing a flat with a white woman.

Jesus Christ. There wasn’t a prosecution then??? Er – but Rosemary eventually found herself at the top of the medicine tree after all this adversity, a tree in which she ignored the abuse and hardship still experienced by others…

Dr Lionel eliciting amazing recoveries in patients beyond all hope…Rosemary’s Ceylonese friend being smacked in the chops by a racist senior Top Doc employed in the hell-hole? I suspect that Rosemary’s career success was predicated on the method employed by so many whom I have discussed on this blog who knew what happened to me…

‘I’m going to tell… I’m going to tell…’

Ooh now there’s no need to get upset Rosemary, this is just one unfortunate incident, that Ceylonese ‘friend’ of yours has returned to his own country now..

DAME Rosemary here we come!!!

I am interested that although reference is made to ‘Rosemary’s husband’, no details of the husband are supplied anywhere. We know that Rosemary was sharing a flat with a Ceylonese man who was looking after Rosemary’s baby and who was then smacked in the chops by a Top Doc… Was the Ceylonese man Rosemary’s other half who was thumped for shagging One Of Our Women? I’m also wondering whether Rosemary might have been an unmarried mother, which was why she was treated so badly, kept her baby a secret and why no details of her husband are provided anywhere.

GP jobs were hard to find in 1952, but a GP who met Rue on the psychiatry course offered her a job in the industrial part of town.

I bet he did. Rosemary probably had a choice of jobs for the first time in her life. Jobs associated with psychiatry in Oxford, where the psychiatric services were concealing child abuse…

There, in 1954, she contracted polio from a patient. The disease was by then all but eradicated and she was the last person to get it in Oxford.

That was very unfortunate, what with Rosemary have so much crap on them all and just having received a bit of a break for once. Rosemary’s experiences are as bizarre as my own, but I’ve not been given a job running Oxfordshire Health Authority and the title of Dame.

Please Lilibet, if you’re reading this, I DON’T WANT IT!!! I’m not Rosemary, I won’t be keeping quiet in return for a gong.

With one useless leg and barely able to walk with her calipers and crutches, or to carry a medical bag, she briefly taught chemistry and biology in a girls’ school. She applied for medical jobs, drove to the interview, and if she was unable to get up the steps to the front door would phone and say she’d accepted another job.

By then – 1955 – she was separated from her husband and went to live with her parents in Hertfordshire. Their local, single-handed GP had undergone a leg amputation for cancer sarcoma and needed a part-time partner. At the interview he was hopping around on a pylon as he didn’t find his artificial limb helpful,

Although he’ll have known how useless they were when he and his colleagues distributed them to patients.

and he was pleased to find her: together they had two legs. General practice in 1955 was diverse and demanding: people gave birth at home, patients distrusted hospitals,

With good reason. Even Rosemary came to grief at their hands.

and hospitals didn’t want patients aged over 60.

My how things haven’t changed.

She was also medical officer to the RAF at Bovingdon.

Rosemary will have been witness/party to yet more wrongdoing there.

She moved on in 1960, becoming Assistant County Medical Officer for Hertfordshire and part-time paediatrician in Watford. Here, she said, she learned the importance of properly integrated medical and social services

The integration of those services oiled the wheels of organised abuse. Hence social worker Barbara Kahan and her Top Doc husband were able to become a double act.

and spent an academic term at the Institute of Child Health in London… 

Malpractice and abuse had become sufficiently embedded by then that the people teaching in such institutions – as on ‘psychiatry courses’ – were in on it…

She soon realised that all hospitals had basic architectural needs, such as the width of corridors and the gizmo in the panel at the bedheads, and designed basic modules that could be incorporated into every hospital, which cut down on architect bills and meant that the best designs were repeated everywhere.

The best designs which had to be replaced by hospitals of different designs because Rosemary’s best designs weren’t that good. Rosemary wasn’t a builder or an architect, so it is not entirely surprising that the best designs were later scrapped. I was told a curious tale some time ago, of the Top Docs at Ysbyty Gwynedd having a say in the design of the Hergest Unit. Being the Top Docs they all fought among themselves, but eventually Hergest was built. As the Hergest Unit sunk under the allegations of patient abuse and the death rate soared, the gang maintained that the building was at fault, it was All Wrong and Always Had Been. That is not what was said when the Hergest was built, it was the Top Docs’ pride and joy, people were given conducted tours and photos appeared in the press. The abuse at Denbigh was blamed on the building. The abuse at Tawel Fan was blamed on the building. Where had the staff at the Hergest and Tawel Fan been recruited from? Denbigh. Where the building ran a trafficking ring and illegally arrested the victims and then locked them inside of itself.

Milton Keynes was the first modern hospital to be built de novo: entire teams of medical, nursing and ancillary staff had to start from scratch on the same day. The new town was also a marvellous opportunity to build a health service that started from the patients and GPs, with community services and hospitals to support them in an inverted pyramid, rather than working from the top downwards.

Wasn’t Milton Keynes famous for its anomie and thus it was a case of Never Again? Decades down the line, Fungus Lowe was reaping the rewards though.

Rue persuaded the government to fund this by cutting the budgets of the London teaching hospitals, arguing logically that they were having to tout for patients as the capital’s population decreased.

The only way that a Lady Doctor with family responsibilities, a severe disability and a career history like Rosemary’s could have nabbed the dosh destined for the London teaching hospitals would be in the event of Rosemary having some really top class dirt on some top class people…

In Oxford, she had been the first regional medical officer to recognise the public health threat of Aids and to insist that no blood was given for transfusion unless it had undergone the newly developed test for the virus…

So DAME Rosemary knew what Lord Glenarthur had done just before AIDS was flagged up as a public health risk and DAME Rosemary made a point of covering her arse.

…she recently argued that the reason that the Sars respiratory virus outbreak had been effectively stopped was that the director-general of the World Health Organisation, Gro Harlem Brundtland, was public-health trained.

Wasn’t the reason for the non-epidemic of SARS that the predictions were hopelessly inaccurate because fundamental errors were made? I don’t think that anyone stopped the SARS epidemic, it just didn’t happen as expected. If Gro was the person responsible, why did Gro miss so many other public health risks?

She was elected to Fellowship of all the medical college…

The Dame had them all by the knackers.

She was a founding Fellow of Green College, Oxford

Of which Dafydd’s enormous umbrella Lord John Walton, the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne – whom the Dame knew – was Warden, 1983-89. See previous posts.

and she was awarded the Jenner medal of the Royal Society of Health. She wrote papers on ward design, women in medicine, general practice, community hospitals, and individuals requiring security.

The Dame was probably personally advising Dafydd’s gang on the security required by me, it is certainly not impossible. Particularly with Professors Mark Williams and Tom Burns being given Chairs in Cunning at Oxford University after finding out what Dafydd was up to and had done to me in particular. See previous posts…

In an era when many doctors were suspended,

Top Docs are rarely suspended

usually for whistle-blowing

Except for whistleblowers

Rue suspended only one, a man who was subsequently imprisoned for sexually assaulting children…

In the light of how many Top Docs were involved in a huge trafficking ring with which the Dame worked and kept quiet about, I suggest that someone reopens the case of this Top Doc who was imprisoned. He could well have been fitted up by the Dame, in the way that a series of attempts were made by people known to the Dame to fit me up for very serious offences which would have seen me in prison for years had the efforts of Dafydd et al not constantly blown up in their faces as a result of their own fuckwittery. If a ‘service’ has been colonised by serious organised crime, it will not be the criminals who are convicted, it will be those whom the criminals want to ensure will never be listened to again. One very effective way of dong that is to fit them up for sexual assaults on children. It was done in north Wales and I know of cases. It was/is the MO of Dafydd’s gang, but it was difficult for them to do that with me because I’m female and I don’t look gruesome and wear a shell suit a la Vicky Pollard, so other allegations had to be made.

She was respected and loved,

Translate as ‘loathed, but she could really cause us problems…’

and always understated her achievements.

Which is why she was called DAME.

After her retirement in 1988, she was President of the BMA for a year, Vice-President of the Alzheimer’s Society, Chairman of the Wyndham Housing Association in Oxford and of the Margaret Pyke Trust, which is concerned with family planning and sexual health.

Understating her achievements all the way, as the DAME made the tea and emptied the bins. Why am I not surprised that the Dame was concerned with family planning and sexual health at a time when police investigations were beginning right across the country into sex abuse rings targeting kids in care? A Lady Doctor who had dedicated her career to Empowering other Wimmin! Who had some very unsavoury colleagues that she never raised any concerns about, although she knew the sort of things that they did because one of them punched an Indian man in the face for daring to have sex with a White Lady. I have known a lot of Lady Doctors of the Dame’s ilk. They are called ‘accessories’. Their role as accessories was known to the police but no patients were warned.

 

Chitra ‘became the first woman and first South Asian (“Asian” in British English) to head the BBC’. It’s just as well that Chitra’s wiki entry explains that South Asians are ‘Asians’ in British English, because now the other Trustees can do what Ruth Deech did to Merfyn when he stated that the BBC shouldn’t deal in racial or ethnic stereotypes; Ruth banged on about how when Ruth thinks of Wales she thinks of chapels, valleys, singing, Snowdonia and those Welsh women’s hats which are like witches hats with the top cut off, which were never worn by any mainstream Welsh women, they were an invention – along with the rest of the Welsh women’s national dress – of Lady Llanover, who insisted that her servants dressed up in that gear. However, plastic versions of the hats can be purchased from the shops in Rhyl in the summer if Ruth Deech would like one. Ruth Deech got her Welsh stereotypes muddled up, they were an interesting mix of north, south and west Wales. So I need to warn the BBC that ‘Asian’ covers Chinese people as well as people like Chitra.

Baroness Ruth Deech wearing the National Dress of Gresham Professors of Law:

 

Chitra was born in Madurai – not in China Ruth!! – and has lived in the UK since 1972. She was educated at Ewart School, Madras and Christian Medical College and Hospital, Vellore, qualifying as a Top Doc before moving to the UK in 1972. Between 1981 and 2000, Chitra was consultant clinical haematologist at Belfast City Hospital and was Deputy Director of the N Ireland Blood Transfusion Service. She was elected to the GMC in 1999 where she served on a number of panels including Chair of the Fitness to Practise Adjudication Panels.

In the early 1970s, the GMC allowed Dr Morris Fraser, a paedophile child psychiatrist to continue practising. Fraser later sexually assaulted children. Fraser was involved with Kincora Boys’ Home and then left N Ireland to work at Springfield Hospital (the mental health unit linked to St George’s Hospital Medical School) and UCL. Chitra was working as a Top Doc in the UK when the GMC let Fraser practice, although Chitra was not on the GMC at the time.

Chitra was on the GMC and concerned with Fitness to Practice hearings when I made complaints to the GMC about Dr Tony Roberts of the Hergest Unit and his colleague Dr Andy Jones. Roberts had ordered my key worker off of my case against both my and the key worker’s wishes and had appointed himself my Top Doctor although I told him clearly that I did not want him as a Top Doctor. Roberts ordered every other Top Doc not to treat me. In response to me phoning the out of hours GP service one night, the GP contacted the service and ordered them to do ‘Do Nothing’, although the GP had told Roberts that I was ‘suicidal ++++’. I didn’t receive that documentation until years later, all I knew was that a very nice Lady Doctor (yes she was nice amazingly enough) had told me that she would make enquiries and do her best to help but when I phoned back later as requested, a Rude Bastard answered, told me ‘she’s not here, she’s gone, good bye’ and slammed the phone down on me. I now have the documentation compiled by the Rude Bastard. He documented that I had ring back and he had told me that the other GP wasn’t available – although she was just leaving the building when I rang – and that I could always contact Tony Roberts and that the ‘call was then over’. The Rude Bastard is a lay preacher as well as a GP in the Caernarfon area.

While under Tony Roberts’s ‘care’ I was violently assaulted by three healthcare assistants and an Angel and injured. I was prevented from reporting the assault to the police and was kept in a locked ward until the bruises faded. I was then arrested on the orders of Roberts for ‘threatening to kill’ an NHS manager. Eight NHS staff perjured themselves but the charges were withdrawn on the first day of my trial nearly two years later, by which time I had lost my home and my job.

Tony Roberts’s colleague Andy Jones had been my neighbour for a number of years. I knew Andy to be violent and that his previous partner had left him because of this, taking their son and had denied Andy access to him. Andy had remarried and had two young children. Tony Roberts told me that as well as Roberts being my doctor, Andy would be as well. I told Roberts that I did not want Andy as my doctor and furthermore Andy had been my neighbour for years, he couldn’t be my doctor. Roberts quacked at me that Andy was my doctor whether I wanted it or not and waddled off. I later found out that Andy had documented upon my records that I had set fire to the hospital. I have never set fire to anywhere.

I subsequently made representation to the GMC – while Chitra was sitting on it – about Roberts and Andy. The GMC wrote to Ysbyty Gwynedd and received a letter from Keith Thomson, the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust telling them that he had no concerns about Roberts or Andy and that I had made ‘outrageous allegations’ about the staff. The GMC refused to investigate. Years later my lawyer found a forged document in the possession of the GMC purporting to be a letter from me about Roberts and Jones. See post ‘The General Medical Council and Yet Another Forged Document’.

Andy Jones subsequently left his job at Ysbyty Gwynedd after he attacked his wife so violently that she was sectioned as a result of her distress. His children were taken into care on the grounds of serious neglect. I was told by a neighbour that Andy was working as a Top Doc in the US. Andy was finally removed from the Medical Register years later not long before I left Wales, after I told a GP that I knew about Andy’s violence and I knew that he had now lost access to three of his children because of it, that I had documentation demonstrating that the GMC and Ysbyty Gwynedd had known that he was violent and a danger to patients for years and that I would publish this. The GP told me that he would ring the GMC himself.

Ysbyty Gwynedd knew that Andy was unsuitable for employment before he went to Guy’s to begin his medical degree. He spent a year working as a porter at Ysbyty Gwynedd and during that time he was caught on a number of occasions having sex with other staff on hospital premises, during working hours. Andy’s brother worked in the Dept of Psychology at Bangor University and he knew Dafydd. I have been told that Andy was given that place at Guy’s in yet another ‘deal’ to buy the silence of people who knew what had happened to me back in the 1980s re Gwynne the lobotomist and Dafydd.

As for Tony Roberts, so many of his female patients killed themselves that it showed up as a statistical outlier; the highest rate of suicide among women in England and Wales outside of Camden. No-one could understand it because it was a rural area without the usual indicators for suicide. Except that Tony fucking Roberts was there. I was told by another mental health professional that Roberts was incapable of recognising illness or depression in women, he just told them all that they had borderline personality disorders and refused to treat them. They killed themselves in great numbers. Roberts was clinical director of the Hergest Unit. The death rate soared, there were complaints made to the Secretary of State for Wales and patients were even found dead on the wards. Still Roberts was not investigated.

Two very dangerous men Chitra. As a former President of the Medical Women’s Federation while there were demands for a public inquiry into the abuse of children in north Wales and while Dafydd and the gang perjured themselves, forged documentation and planted evidence in their efforts to have me imprisoned, could you explain why a few years later you popped you dreadful little head up at the GMC, where ONCE MORE you protected two members of a trafficking gang?

In 1996 – the year that William Hague announced the Waterhouse Inquiry – Bharucha moved into positions in the media industry, serving on the BBC Broadcasting Council for Northern Ireland until 1999. Chitra was there until just before Ronnie Waterhouse published the cover-up into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, which was linked to the abuse at Kincora Boys’ Home. In April 2001 Chitra was appointed as the N Ireland member of the Independent Television Commission, where she served until December 2003 when the ITC was subsumed into Ofcom and she became a member of the ASA Council in November 2004.

There’s nothing like a safe pair of hands is there Chitra?

In April 2002, Bharucha was appointed Chair of the Advisory Committee on Animal Feedingstuffs for the Food Standards Agency. I really don’t think that Chitra should even be let loose with the animals’ grub. She hasn’t got a very sound track record where Risk Assessment is concerned has she. Chitra is probably the person who OK’d the feeding of dead chickens ground up and mixed with other feed to be fed to chickens and similar practices.

In 2006 Chitra was appointed Lay Member of the Review Body for Judicial Complaints. Surely the appointment of Chitra as the first Woman Top Doc who is a Law Lord cannot be far away?

In October 2006, Bharucha was appointed as Vice Chairman of the BBC Trust. She was to be the Deputy to Michael Grade, the then BBC Chairman. Grade resigned soon after the formation of the Trust on 1 November 2006 and Bharucha became the Acting BBC Chairman, a position that she held until Sir Michael Lyons took over the Chairmanship on 1 May 2007. Bharucha stood down from her role as Vice Chairman of the Trust on 31 October 2010.

In the summer of 1985, Michael Grade and his mate Samuel Brittan, Leon Brittan’s brother, demanded that my friend’s head should roll when she was working at the Edinburgh Fringe’s box office and she refused to do a fiddle to bag Samuel Brittan a ticket and accommodation after the tickets had sold out and all accommodation was fully booked. Leon Brittan was Home Secretary at the time and Brown, I and our friends were under surveillance by the security services, because by that time, my battles with Dafydd’s gang had got out of hand. My friend’s mum and dad had been giving me advice re Dafydd’s gang, because they were health and social care professionals themselves. Then along came Michael Grade… My friend and the man whom she later married did begin careers in the media but they found gangsters after them and they were both forced out of the media in the early 1990s. See previous posts eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’. My friends had been at Stirling University with Jack McConnell, who later became FM of Scotland, who I have been told was behind much of the grief that my friends received. See previous posts.

Gordon Brown is pals with Jack McConnell and has been for years. Gordon was very nice to Jack, although he really hated some of Jack’s militant mates. See previous posts. Gordon Brown is married to Sarah, who was previously Sarah Macaulay. Sarah met Gordon via her PR company Hobsbawm Macaulay Communications, which did a lot of work for the Labour Party and trade unions. Sarah established Hobsbawm Macaulay with her friend from Camden School for Girls, Julia Hobsbawm. Julia’s dad Eric was a Marxist historian who, although a Commie himself, supported the Labour Party and unbelievably, the Windbag. Julia ended up as a friends of the PM’s wife! The Hobsbawm’s main residence was in Camden, but they had a second home in Croesor in Gwynedd. Croesor was the centre of the Welsh Bloomsbury Set, a group of radicals, activists on the left and intellectuals who had second homes in the area throughout the middle years of the 20th century. They congregated there because of the presence of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who’s wife Amabel was a member of the Strachey family and of course the presence of Bertrand Russell nearby. The main residences of the Welsh Bloomsbury Set were usually in London, often Camden. See posts g. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

The Welsh Bloomsbury Set knew what Gwynne and Dafydd were up to and a number of them made use of their services. Some of them were involved with sexual exploitation and abuse themselves and many more were protecting people who were because they were their friends or relations. They were able to do this very effectively because so many of them were influential well-connected people, including Top Docs, analysts, politicians, writers, journos, lawyers etc.

Merfyn Jones, who later became VC of Bangor University, grew up in the area and his parents ran a pub, the Brondanw Arms, which they rented from Sir Clough’s estate. See previous posts. Merfyn had witnessed Dafydd and Gwynne’s reign of terror at first hand and knew what it was all about: the Westminster Paedophile Ring. That is the reason why so many of those we know and love had a problem with Merfyn.  Now fuck off gwerin, Top Doctors, Miranda, Gordon and everyone else who threw mud at Merfyn and helped hound him out of public life, you have been party to the most dreadful criminality past and present and it has now been exposed on this blog. That is what you get for coming after me you bastards, don’t ever try it again. I’m not as polite as Merfyn and furthermore I spent years witnessing the crimes of your powerbase – the Top Doctors. And then I got my paws on 10,000 documents detailing an even greater conspiracy that I realised…

I’m digging into the Hutton Inquiry at the moment Miranda. I note that the trouble all kicked off when Merfyn was a BBC Guv’nor and gave me that place to do a PhD at Bangor University…

You are a metropolitan twat Miranda, don’t ever underestimate a bumpkin or a sheepshagger…

 

Baroness Ilora Finlay was the President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 2001-02. The Baroness was also appointed President of the BMA in 2014, when the Macur Review, the cover-up of the cover-up which was the Waterhouse Inquiry, began.

Ilora Gillian Finlay, Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, (born 23 February 1949) is an Independent crossbencher in the Lords. Ilora is the only daughter of Professor Charles Beaumont Benoy Downman. Professor Charles Downman was a Prof of Physiology at London University, who served in the RAMC, completed his PhD at Tommy’s and held senior academic posts at the Royal Free Hospital.

Ilora married Andrew Yule Finlay in 1972, with whom she has two children. She is a past President of the Royal Society of Medicine, just like the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Ilora is a Professor of Palliative Medicine at Cardiff University School of Medicine and consultant at the Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff. Cardiff University, particularly the School of Medicine, formerly known as the Welsh National School of Medicine, has for decades concealed serious criminality, including Dafydd’s gang and George Thomas’s sex offending. The two Mr Bigs at Cardiff who concealed organised sexual abuse were Professor Sir William Asscher, who was called to cover the crap at St George’s when Professor Oliver Brooke, their lead paediatrician, was jailed for child porn in 1986 (see post ‘Oliver!’) and Professor Kenneth Rawnsley, Prof of Psychological Medicine at Cardiff. Rawnsley’s wife Dr Elinor Kapp was a child psychiatrist who also concealed organised abuse. See previous posts.

Tony Francis trained with Rawnsley and I have been told that Tony Francis and Baroness Ilora knew each other. Ilora bagged her peerage in 2001, the year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report. That was also the year in which LADY Finlay was appointed President of the Medical Women’s Federation!

Baroness Finlay was appointed a consultant in 1987, the year in which Dafydd, Tony Francis et al hatched an elaborate plan to frame me and have me imprisoned shortly after the June 1987 General Election, but it unravelled when a police officer and nursing officer didn’t tell as many lies as were required (see post ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ, How many Kids Did You Kill Today?’). In 1987 Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane took pity on Oliver Brooke and ordered Ollie’s early release from prison, just before the General Election (see post ‘Oliver!’). Finlay was named Welsh Woman of the Year, 1996-97. Women who’ve helped the paedophile gang often bag that award, it went to Professor Judy Hutchings one year, a clinical psychologist who spent years working with Dafydd’s gang and invented a parenting programme, ‘Incredible Years’, which was yet another way that people who were suffering at the hands of the gang could be blamed for their own problems. See previous posts.

In 2008 Finlay secured the ‘Woman Peer of the Year’ award. I expect Ruth Deech has won that as well. It’ll be the Baroness of Ely’s turn soon.

The Baroness Finlay has not been able to explain why palliative care is still so bad, including in Cardiff, what with her having been a Professor of it for such a long time. As for the Velindre Centre, that was a favourite destination of the meathead Rhodri Morgan for his photo opps, ‘ooh here’s Rhodri with the Angels and Docs at the Velindre Centre!’ Previous posts discuss some of the less well-publicised problems re the Velindre Centre.

In 2003 the Baroness proposed a bill to ban smoking in public buildings in Wales, three years before it was eventually implemented. The Baroness, Mark Drakeford and Julie Morgan, Rhodri’s wife, all have a big problem with other people smoking. Smoking isn’t a good idea, but I do wish that the Baroness, Julie and Drakeford, all of whom worked with people involved with sexual abuse and exploitation and serious criminality, would become as exercised about that as they did about smoking.

In 2007, Lady Finlay introduced a private members bill seeking to change the current system of organ donation from ‘opt in’ to ‘opt out’. Wales has now adopted the ‘opt out’ system, which as I have discussed previously on the blog has a terrifying potential in a nation with an endemically corrupt NHS staffed by people involved with serious organised crime. 

In March 2010, Baroness Finlay sponsored the Sunbeds (Regulation) Bill as it reached the House of Lords for scrutiny. With just weeks before the forthcoming General Election, Baroness Finlay took the MP Julie Morgan’s private members bill through its final stages, to Royal Assent. Rhodri boasted about this in his autobiography, he thinks it’s why Lilibet was so impressed with Julie on the day that they met Lilibet when Lilibet did her ‘Have you come far?’ bit. ‘Only from south Wales, where the Baronesses Finlay and of Ely live like Royalty, along with the Morgans, while everyone else is in’t shoebox in’t middle of t’road being lectured about fucking sunbeds, while the Top Docs preside over the worst mortality rates in Europe, run a trafficking gang and flog class A drugs.’

Baroness Finlay is a Co-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group, which brings together parliamentarians committed to tackling CO poisoning. Lady Finlay also Chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dying Well, which promotes palliative care… Her pal Tony Francis was one of the lead consultant psychiatrists in a region with one of the highest rates of suicide in the UK.

Finlay is a Vice President of Marie Curie (an organisation with a serious work-place bullying problem), Patron of the Trussell Trust’s foodbank network in Wales – Wales has some of the highest poverty levels in the UK, but the Baroness, the Morgans and the Francis’s haven’t experienced this themselves – and the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Ilora Finlay is also Patron of Student Volunteering Cardiff. She was a Founding Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales, a collection of pompous paedophiles’ friends who bestow honours upon each other and is a Member of its inaugural Council. Ilora is Patron of the charidee Students for Kids International Projects. In 2017, she was appointed one of two Patrons of the Royal Microscopic Society, the other being fellow member of the Lords, Baroness Brown of Cambridge. 

In March 2015, Finlay was awarded the Grassroots Diplomat Initiative Honouree for her ‘vigorous championing’ to improving the care of dying patients. The ironies never stop. Did Finlay hear about the circumstances under which Ann Clwyd’s husband died in the University Hospital in Cardiff? Ann Clwyd and her husband were Of Dafydd as well, even they don’t get a dignified death now that Dying is the remit of Ilora Finlay. 

The Baroness’s old friend Tony Francis killed himself in 2012, after Operation Pallial re-opened the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. I was told that he hung himself. So the Baroness of Palliative Care didn’t ensure that Francis went out painlessly or with dignity then…

 

Now for the Lady Doctor who served as President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 1966-67, back when Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was Minister of Health and  also working cheek by jowl with Dafydd in MIND and undoubtedly knew that his Ministry was facilitating a paedophile/trafficking ring. It was Josephine Barnes.

Dame Alice Josephine Mary Taylor Barnes (18 August 1912 – 28 December 1999), was the first female president of the BMA, 1979-80. That was the year in which Dafydd illegally imprisoned Mary Wynch. Mary sued, she won, her case made legal history and there was not a word from a Top Doctor, Lady, Man or Hermaphrodite.

Josephine Barnes was born in 1912, the eldest of five. She was born in Sheringham, Norfolk and educated at Oxford High School and Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University. Barnes then studied medicine at UCL. When WW II started Barnes was appointed to a post at the Samaritan Hospital. From 1947 she ran a mobile obstetric team from UCH. Barnes was the first woman consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at Charing Cross Hospital, appointed in 1954. Her colleagues in the Dept of Psychiatry there were part of the trafficking ring and also did some terrible things in the Gender Identity Clinic (see previous post). Barnes will have known about the GIC clinic not only because it was famous, but because of the overlap with gynaecology.

Barnes was also Chairman of the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital Appeal Trust, President of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (known since 1994 as the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women’s Health), 1977-95 and President of the Royal British Nurses’ Association.

Top Doctors are often to be found heading organisations of healthcare professionals who are not Top Docs, which is curious because these professional groups are hostile to each other. I suspect that the presence of a Top Doctor is welcomed because they have a lot more clout than Angels, but the downside is that the Top Doc would then start calling the shots… The Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Dafydd’s friend and protector Lord John Walton, had nothing but contempt for anyone who was not a Top Doc but he acquired high office with the occupational therapists professional association. Walton arrived in that position when it was clear that the one whistleblower employed in the NHS in Gwynedd was not going to be intimidated out of his job; that whistleblower was a senior occupational therapist. He developed MS and found that the neurologist at Ysbyty Gwynedd was hostile and worse than useless. John Walton was a neurologist, neurosurgeon and a psychiatrist. John Walton knew Gwynne the lobotomist and Walton really will not have wanted anyone at all working in north Wales who was listening to patients and raising concerns. The whistleblowing occupational therapist was presenting a problem in Gwynedd, because he had a different line manager who was not Of The Gang, so the Bastard arrived at the top of the whistleblower’s professional association, no doubt waiting for a complaint of professional misconduct that was under development…

Between 1995 and 1996, Barnes was President of the History of Medicine Society at the Royal Society of Medicine. My post ‘The Wrong Set’ discussed how Top Doctors involved with colleagues who were facilitating abuse or indeed doing so themselves, began turning themselves into Historians of Medicine when police investigations were being launched into the organised child abuse in the 1980s. Dafydd’s colleagues in north Wales began rewriting history in the early 1990s. I note that Barnes became President of the History of Medicine Society the year that her colleagues at St George’s Geoffrey Chamberlain and Malcolm Pearce were in the media again. This was as a result of the research fraud scandal in which they had been previously named resulting in Malcolm appearing before the GMC and being struck off in the summer of 1995. Chamberlain’s name was on the journal article of lies as well, but Chamberlain wasn’t even investigated by the GMC, he gave evidence against Malcolm.

Chamberlain was friends with Sir George Pinker, the Royal Gynaecologist who delivered William and Harry and had celebs as his patients including Cilla, so Chamberlain couldn’t appear before the GMC. Josephine Barnes knew Chamberlain and Oinker. When Chamberlain retired from the NHS in 2000, he was given a job at Swansea University – Chamberlain was posh Welsh, he went to Llandaff Cathedral School – lecturing in the History of Medicine. Just in time for the publication of the Waterhouse Report… Rhodri Morgan’s family effectively ran Swansea University… See previous posts.

Years Later:

Appearing on TV discussion programme ‘After Dark’ in 1997. Arrogant sneer and glare still intact…

Josephine Barnes was also a Friend of the English Pocket Opera Company and a Guardian of Westminster Abbey. She was a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, of which was she sometime Vice-President.

Josephine Barnes’s obituary appears on the Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online:

b.18 August 1912 d.28 December 1999
DBE(1974) BA Oxon(1934) MA BM BCh(1937) FRCS(1939) DM(1941) FRCOG(1952) FRCP(1967) Hon FRCPI(1977) Hon MD Liverpool(1979) Hon DSc Leicester(1980) Hon MD Southampton(1981) Hon DSc Oxon(1990) Hon FRCOG(1994)

Dame Josephine Barnes ranked among the leading obstetricians and gynaecologists of her generation. Outstanding clinical credentials and drive took her to a top teaching hospital appointment, against the grain of male selection, in the 1950s.

It won’t just have been outstanding clinical credentials, Barnes really will have been ruthless and insensitive to have withstood the aggro.

A combination of expertise, glamour and fine advocacy of better women’s reproductive health care soon led to national celebrity,

It was because she was a young woman working in that field, a novelty.

while on the international stage she became a renowned contributor to gynaecological academies and conferences. In 1979 she became the 139th, and first woman, president of the British Medical Association. Membership of three national committees of inquiry further added to her stature.

Josephine was a safe pair of hands. She was at daggers drawn with many colleagues and received no favours from them as a young doctor, but she was never ever going to break ranks and risk the very dangerous ship sinking.

Her fine teaching of clinical students at Charing Cross Hospital Medical School, London, was as meticulous as her surgery and the basis of influential textbooks. It is said that she operated with the incisiveness of Beecham beginning a Schubert symphony.

Top Docs love making comments like this. It reminds them that they are not just Clever Doctors, but they are Cultured as well. Excuse me while I read my latest ‘Take a Break’.

Josephine Barnes had a warm pride in her Yorkshire ancestry. In industriousness, she identified closely with an impressive line of Taylor forebears from which her mother emanated. Her great grandfather, John Francis Taylor, had been a captain of Victorian commerce in York, a founding director of a bank and insurance company, and pioneering chairman of York’s gas and electricity companies. To this family, her mother, Alice Mary née Ibbotson, one of the earliest women accorded fellowship of the Royal College of Organists, added musical distinction.

A Grand Family with loyalties to Savile Central.

Brought up in Exeter, Scarborough and Oxford, the first of five children, Josephine Barnes attended schools along the path of her father’s, the Reverend Walter W Barnes’, Methodist ministry.

Read eg. ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ and ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’ for discussion of the Methodist network which was involved in the Westminster Paedophile Ring, particularly the Wales arm of it… Not all Methodists were involved, as with Top Docs some will have been horrified, but like medicine, it was group identity and reputation at stake.

Within the exceptional, self-directed learning ambience of Oxford High School for Girls in the 1920s, she took up science, decided on a career in medicine and rejected her family’s long-treasured Methodism stretching back to Wesley.

She will have still been loyal to them even if she wasn’t a practising Methodist.

The hockey skills that were to bring her three Oxford blues also began to develop. As a medical student at Oxford she read natural sciences, before transferring to University College Hospital (UCH) Medical School, London, for clinical training. The beginnings of her surgical career were in the Oxford anatomy department and the tuition of dissection demonstrator Alice Carleton, which propelled her to the primary fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons at 22.

Having trained in surgery at Oxford, Barnes will have known Sir Charles Evans, the Top Doc who served as Principal of UCNW for the best part of 30 years until 1984. See post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’

First class honours in physiology at Oxford and a Goldschmid scholarship for clinical studies added to this early distinction. Fastidious commitment distinguished her medical school career at UCH. Intent on becoming a first-rate clinician and aware of the gender bias then operating against women in medicine, she strove to outclass male contemporaries. But it was not all work and no play: she still managed to read two novels a week, play hockey for a London University team and sing with the London Philharmonic Choir, occasionally under the direction of Sir Thomas Beecham and once under the German musician and composer, Wilhelm Furtwängler.

Barnes will have been able and hardworking, but when she trained, medicine was definitely not as onerous for students as it later became.

She accumulated clinical competence on the firms of Sir Francis Walshe, Sir John McNee, Wilfrid Trotter, Julian Taylor and Clifford White. These were the 1930s – heydays of UCH teaching. The brilliant young registrar Max Rosenheim (later Lord) assisted her early diagnostic skills. Assisting him, she watched “the miraculous first use of Prontosil at UCH”.

Prontosil is Sulphonamide, one of the miracles that Beryl Corner used as detailed earlier in this post. Lord Max Rosenheim went to Shrewsbury School, which is where Sir Charles Evans the Principal of UCNW went to school, then to St John’s College Cambridge and then to UCH. Ronnie Waterhouse went to St John’s College Cambridge and was an enthusiastic networker among the alumni.

Josephine Barnes qualified in 1937, with UCH medals and prizes and keenly focused on a career in obstetrics and gynaecology, a disciple of “the finest tutor” of her training, Francis ‘F J’ Browne, the principal architect of modern hospitalised maternity care. She intended following Browne’s footsteps in advancing antenatal care and safety of childbirth.

The first steps were the trickiest. She ran into male prejudice at UCH in trying to secure the house officer appointments needed on the hospital career ladder. Her first application for a medical house job fell flat, and she needed to divert to the King Edward VII Hospital, Windsor, for surgical experience. Eventually, at UCH she was taken on to the firm of physicians Andrew Morland and John Hawksley and, as a result of Morland’s teaching, became interested in tuberculosis, leading to her 1941 Oxford DM research on TB and pregnancy. Finally, in the months leading up to the Second World War, she fulfilled her ambition to gain a house job in the obstetrics unit of the UCH and qualified MRCP.

She qualified FRCS in 1939 and, advised by the BMA, abandoned thoughts of military service to serve on ‘the home front’,

Even Josephine was being contained by the establishment to which she was so loyal.

filling in for hospital doctors who had been called up. She spent six months as a house surgeon at the Samaritan Hospital for Women, Marylebone, then six months as a resident medical officer at nearby Queen Charlotte’s Maternity Hospital, maintaining high quality maternity care amidst the worst horrors of the London Blitz.

No, the maternity care at the time wasn’t ‘high quality’, it was basic, there was a bloody war on.

She filled a vacancy in the Nuffield obstetrics and gynaecology department at Oxford’s Radcliffe Hospital in 1941, working as first assistant to Chassar Moir, the revered discoverer of ergometrine. In addition to surgical lists and teaching Oxford’s first intake of clinical students, she took charge of the emergency maternity annexe set up at Ruskin College for women evacuated from the industrial towns of the south coast. In this Oxford year she qualified as a member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

Securing the first assistant’s post at F J Browne’s professorial unit took her back to UCH at the beginning of 1942, where, with the staff depleted by military service, she also took took up registrar duties. Her career had begun gaining momentum of a kind possible only in wartime

Particularly for women. The blokes weren’t there to be given priority.

and, swept off her feet by junior UCH house officer Brian Warren, she added marriage to her CV in 1942, before his departure on Army service.

She was to combine marriage, motherhood, senior hospital appointments and research with renowned efficiency.

It wasn’t all a roaring success, as we shall see…

In 1942 she began a 500-case study of the credentials of pethidine as an obstetrics analgesic. Soon after becoming a mother, late in 1943, she embarked on a parallel study investigating and eventually contradicting the view that pregnancy increased women’s long-term risks of hypertension. She also inaugurated a UCH study of postnatal diuresis.

The years 1945 to 1947 were pivotal and career advancing. She slimmed down her commitments at UCH to take on locum consultant duties at the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital, Marylebone, and appointments as visiting gynaecological surgeon at the Marie Curie Hospital, Hampstead, and Hospital for Women, Soho Square. In addition, she set up in private practice in Wimpole Street and began serving on national committees of the Family Planning Association and National Birthday Trust Fund, also as volunteer obstetrician to the Annie McCall Maternity Home charity in Stockwell.

Josephine Barnes will have treated patients who were the victims of sexual assault and abuse, including very young patients. She was also treating the privileged people who had colluded with this or had been party to it. Barnes was treating patients from across the whole spectrum of London life.

Jeffrey Archer worked as a fundraiser for the National Birthday Trust after he graduated from Oxford. See post ‘Tuppence and His Fragrant Wife’.

She also began forging links with obstetricians and gynaecologists on the Continent, with contributions to conferences in France, Belgium and Spain, and membership of the Société Française de Gynécologie in 1946, the first of many international academic bonds.

Her appointment as obstetrics and gynaecology consultant on the staff of the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in 1947 coincided with the retirement from UCH of her greatest mentor, F J Browne, and the arrival of C W C Nixon as professor, with whom she had a less satisfactory association. Nixon sacking her in 1953, to make way for a prestigious research associate, Cicely Williams of kwashiorkor fame, was a massive blow. This injustice Barnes, now a fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and mother of three, brilliantly transcended in becoming the first female consultant at London’s Charing Cross Hospital in 1954, “while the Nixon-Williams association yielded little”.

So Barnes, despite being so impressive, was kicked out unfairly and dealt with it in the way that people do when they know that they are dealing with a hideous system that is so loaded against them, indeed corrupt; she had a bloody good laugh at the lack of achievement at those who shafted her.

Good evening gwerin and Top Docs! I hope that you are enjoying my blog, which I am delighted to say has built up one hell of a readership…

With this teaching hospital appointment, Josephine Barnes joined the front-rank of obstetrics and gynaecology specialists and began a tour de force quarter century of colossal clinical distinction and eminent advocacy of better women’s reproductive welfare. In 23 years at Charing Cross she never had an operating death. She was a meticulous operator, “spilling little blood, needing little use of diathermy”. And throughout these years she continued on the staff of the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital, which she would save from closure in the 1970s and as visiting surgeon at the Marie Curie Hospital, with additional lists at UCH, where she operated on private patients. The publicity her illustrious career attracted and the keen judgement she wielded made her a leading ambassador of family planning and she was an invaluable supporter of David Steel’s Abortion Bill of 1967.

David Steel’s success with his Abortion Bill was the result of the usual dirty dealing and blackmailing of Top Docs and politicians who had been involved in wrongdoing. The Top Docs didn’t back Steel’s bill out of the goodness of their hearts, most of them were still opposed to abortion in 1967, but some key Top Docs had their arms twisted and thus lent their support to the bill and ordered the minions to follow their lead. See previous posts…

She had seen too many victims of back street abortionists not to want legislative change, but, after successfully campaigning with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists for termination to be within the first 24 weeks of pregnancy, would later regard this as six weeks too long. Her memoirs talk of massive discomfort in undertaking abortion at any stage.

Barnes might well have experienced massive discomfort in undertaking abortion, many Top Docs do. But Josephine Barnes knew that her colleagues at Tommy’s were performing illegal abortions on demand pre-1967 for a fee while turning away women without the money, knowing that those women would risk their lives with an illegal abortion;  she also knew that Sir Dugald Baird in Aberdeen was unlawfully aborting babies of low income families because he didn’t think that Poor People should breed. See previous posts.

She served on the Royal Commission on Medical Education, 1965-68, became an FRCP (a qualification denied her during the presidency of Lord Russell Brain)

Barnes did know that this was not a system based on merit or fair play.

and began long service on the boards of the Royal Free Hospital, the Medical Women’s Federation and Medical Defence Union

The Royal Free which was run by mates of Dafydd’s and offered Duncan Orme a place on the NHS management training scheme in return for his silence about Gwynne the lobotomist and the trafficking gang, which Orme had witnessed while he had been the SU Welfare Officer at UCNW in the mid-1980s (see previous posts). During the 1980s, there were public protests outside of the Royal Free by women who were so angry after their bad childbirth experiences there. There were many, many complaints.

The MDU who knowingly supplied Top Docs involved in very serious crime with advice as to how to prosecute their victims, even when it involved the Top Docs committing perjury and requesting the imprisonment of the victims of their criminality…

in addition to chairing the medical committees of the Marie Curie and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson hospitals, and examining for the universities of Oxford, London and Belfast, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and Conjoint Board of Royal Medical Colleges. Examining took her to Africa, Australia and the Caribbean.

An international network. We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us…

International travels, advising and lecturing, took her to more than 20 countries in the course of her long career, “in the interests of better women’s medical welfare”, while in Britain she built an incomparable record of commitment to sexual health charities and agencies in this field, including the Family Planning Association, Women’s National Cancer Control Campaign, and the National Associations of Family Planning Doctors, Family Planning Nurses, and Chartered Physiotherapists in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, over which she presided for 20 years.

Josephine Barnes knew about those trafficking rings. ‘We’re the paedophiles’ friends, we are absolutely everywhere, we control everything and if you begin to publish accounts of our wrongdoing, we’ll become historians and rewrite history.’

Before compulsory retirement from the NHS in 1977, when she felt at her peak and still managing 60 hour weeks, she served on the Lane Committee on the Working of the Abortion Act (from 1971 to 1973)

Barnes knew that until about 1990, all women in north Wales were being unlawfully refused NHS abortions by a conspiracy of Top Docs, who instead were happy to refer them on demand in return for a fee to a dangerous private abortionist in Chester. She knew that women who didn’t have the fee would be referred to Dafydd ‘for assessment’ and knew that they still wouldn’t be offered an NHS abortion. Barnes also knew where all those disappearing babies went. See eg. ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’.

Barnes kept schtum about these matters until she died, throughout every investigation, public inquiry and media debate.

had the honour of becoming a DBE and vice president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 1974, and only missed being elected president in the following year by one vote – “a moment of rare dejection”.

The President of the Royal College in 1974-75 was Sir Stanley Clayton. Clayton was one of the posh old Top Doctors of the genre who were always appointed President at the time. A few years later, Sir George Pinker, the Royal Gynaecologist, served as President. Josephine knew him as well as all the other posh old Top Docs of that era.

But the decade would close on a high note, when she became the first women president of the BMA, with membership of the Warnock Committee on In Vitro Fertilisation and Human Embryology following in its wake (1982 from 1984).

It is now clear that the Warnock Committee did not in any way protect patients from dangerous unscrupulous Top Docs. Mary Warnock had no idea of the sort of things that they were doing, but Dame Josephine knew. She just didn’t tell Mary Warnock. No-one ever asked why Dame Josephine hadn’t piped up when the scams and distressed patients began to emerge…

She continued in private practice until 1995, although delegating surgery from 1987, “a colossal wrench after a career spanning about 80,000 operations”. The deep satisfaction of fine surgery, like the immense joy of midwifery and successes of her children (Penny, Amanda and Anthony), helped overcome the hurt of a broken marriage. She was divorced in 1964 and her former husband went on to become a prestigious private practitioner and was knighted in 1974.

Dame Josephine’s ex was one hell of a Top Doc as we shall see. Her marriage was the first thing that didn’t live up to the Superwoman myth.

“A long life of clinical and social service, revealing to me every shade of what Balzac called the human condition, was a stunning privilege from end to end” is how Dame Josephine concluded her memoirs in 1999″

Social service to the most privileged members of society, including some involved in serious organised crime. A huge cheating exercise on their victims.

The Guardian’s obituary for Josephine was wonderful:

Dame Josephine Barnes, who has died at the age of 87, demurred at being called a feminist,

She would have probably given anyone who asked her if she was one a mouthful.

but devoted her vigorous and distinguished career to the cause of women’s medicine.

No, she devoted her career to the cause of her own career in medicine.

Her death robs us of a neatly built, ever courteous combatant for improved infant mortality, a woman’s right to choose abortion, contraception, and better cancer care for women.

Unless they lived in north Wales. Or were kids in care. Or psych patients. Or disabled. Or had little money. The cock-ups experienced by female private patients at the hands of some of London’s finest Top Docs also tells us that Josephine wasn’t always there to fight on behalf of well-to-do women.

Dame Josephine Barnes – a combatant for the rights of those who had more power than nearly anyone else on the planet!

Her firm belief that women should have their own hospital brought her from retirement to the forefront of a protest march to Downing Street, when Margaret Thatcher, whose party she supported, threatened to close the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson hospital, in north London.

The saga over the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson was, like the case of Wendy Savage, portrayed by the media as a Women’s Choice Battle. It was in reality, like Wendy Savage, a scrap between Top Doctors. See previous posts for an account of the battle over the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson.

She was born in Norfolk and christened with all the family names because her father, a Methodist minister, and her mother, a professional musician, did not expect to have more children. In fact, four siblings followed. Her family moved around the country, although she spent much time at vicarages in Yorkshire and Oxford.

Tony Francis came from Norfolk. My post ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’ discusses the public figures in Norfolk – including Lord David Ennals – who were facilitating organised abuse in the county. Harold Wilson’s wife Mary was born in Norfolk, the daughter of a Congregationalist Minister (see post ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’).

She was educated at Oxford high school, after trying to run away from boarding school several times. After studying physiology at Oxford University, she completed her clinical training at University College Hospital, London, in 1937. It was here that Barnes decided to specialise in gynaecology, giving an inspiring professor, who encouraged her, credit for much of the zeal she went on to demonstrate.

She worked in a number of GP surgeries and hospitals before returning to head the obstetrics unit at UCH (1947-52) and became surgeon to the Marie Curie hospital (1947-67). On paper, her career appears to have progressed effortlessly, but her daughter, Amanda Warren, remembers her mother deducing that being a woman did seem to make things harder at times, although there was never the kind of anger at injustice that feminists voiced.

Josephine won’t have looked at the situation in a Polly Toynbee-esque way. She was a hard, unsympathetic woman who wanted a career in surgery/obs and gynae and consciousness raising will not have been on her radar. She will have been used to dreadful behaviour from her male colleagues, but she will have treated other people in that way herself. The matter of being a woman will only have come to the fore when she had children and physical factors intervened. Even being sacked by Old Gits will have just caused Barnes to take the view of ‘oh fuck you then, I’ll out perform you’.

The toughest obstacle she faced, she once remarked, was convincing her bemused parents that she wanted to be a doctor when she made the decision at the age of 13. It was thanks to the refusal of the British Medical Association (BMA) to take her for war service work that Barnes was able to continue studying long enough to take her FRCS finals, becoming one of the few women surgeons of her time and a role model for female medical students.

She won’t have thought of herself as a role model. She was a Top Doctor.

But, in fact, the war gave her – and other women, she claimed – great opportunities because the men had to go to fight, while women were left to do everything.

Josephine and some other professional women were indeed afforded career opportunities because of WW II. Other women worked as well, but even those who enjoyed their work and wanted to remain there found themselves under pressure to give their jobs up to the men when they returned from the war. Professional women were able to remain in their jobs and many of him had reached senior positions.

She spent much of the war period delivering babies and performing operations during the bombing of London. She later ran an obstetrics flying squad from UCH, a position which brought a conviction that babies should be born in hospital.

Top Docs of her generation always said that, because they saw mothers and babies die in front of them. That’s the bit that they didn’t tell the public. ‘My patient died and I could not save them.’ Chamberlain used to tell staff how as a young man, he watched a new mother bleed to death from a postpartum haemorrhage.

Simultaneously, her concern about infant mortality led her to take the chair of a steering committee for two state maternity surveys, set up between 1948 and 1970, which followed babies through their lives in an attempt to measure the impact on their development of premature birth and, particularly, social class.

Geoffrey Chamberlain was involved with similar work. The people involved with these maternity surveys knew about the dreadful stats and mortality rates for north Wales…

After the war, Barnes was offered a post at the women-only Elizabeth Garrett Anderson hospital, and stayed for 30 years, becoming a consultant after she reluctantly retired from the NHS, aged 67. She was an early campaigner for women’s abortion rights, joining the Abortion Law Reform Association, a position that brought a good degree of public disapproval. But when she believed something was right, she was not to be beaten down.

She later became involved with the issue of cancer screening and president of the Women’s National Cancer Control Campaign, continuing this involvement into her 80s.

Barnes knew that the public were being lied to about that as well.

She was made a DBE in 1974 and became the first woman president of the BMA in 1979.

She married fellow physician Brian Warren in 1942, and within a year their first child, Penny, was born. Amanda and a son, Anthony, followed. The couple were divorced in 1964. Because, when she had her first child, her parents were able to put her and the baby up, Barnes continued working. Likewise, she returned to work two weeks after Amanda was delivered by a difficult Caesarean. Commiserations at how painful it must have been to leave a small baby were swept away as she explained that she was looking forward to going back to work.

Wife, mother and Lady Doctor! Er, shouldn’t that just be ‘Lady Doctor?’

Barnes is remembered by one daughter as having shaped her children’s lives with a routine in which she played her part – conscientious and quick to help if there was a problem, but always busy and with very little free time for playing or just being with them. She was always clear that work was her priority, saying firmly that she wanted to “make herself useful in the outside world”. She reflected in an interview after her children had grown up that she did not believe she had been a good mother, or that she could have stayed at home.

She was a Lady Doctor.

The children were sent to boarding school

A Lady Doctor.

and even then there was only just time, Barnes observed, for her work and the immense list of committees and professional organisations to which she had belonged through the years.

A Lady Doctor working flat out.

In the early days of her career, Barnes went into slum houses to deliver the babies of women whose health during pregnancy had been badly neglected. It angered her to see how low a priority women’s health was, and it sparked a quiet but steely determination that she must do what she could to change the situation.

All Top Docs are obliged to do the Uncle Harry bit… While the Dafydd-blinkers remain firmly in place. Hundreds of women banged up in Denbigh. Josephine – Josephile?? – didn’t give a stuff.

It was this, rather than party politics – she was a Conservative and once considered standing for parliament, although when her husband chose to do so she canvassed for him instead – which made her passionately favour the NHS.

QUE???

It’s not as ludicrous as it sounds readers. The London medical schools are heaving with elitist, privileged Top Docs with dreadful attitudes towards the rest of the world but they are all Passionate About The NHS, even the ones like Josephine with huge private practices. Geoffrey Chamberlain loved the NHS. It gave him an excellent living, let him do exactly what he wanted and someone else was blamed every time that another bomb went off.

She saw that it could make a difference, particularly for women,because before it began men were insured but women did not get free treatment. She is remembered declaring angrily: “If a family was poor, the last thing it afforded was mum going to the doctor.”

There is a degree of truth there, but in most cases, if the family was poor, no-one could afford to go to the doctor. So why did most of Josephine’s colleagues oppose the creation of the NHS then?

Indeed, even in her mid-80s, and troubled with emphysema and other health problems, Barnes was quickly roused to passion and upset at what she saw happening to the health service.

They all are! It’s The Patients Who They Are Worried About! Anyone for Dafydd?

Listen to the sound of silence Poster | hoon_from_the_moon ...

In retirement, she lived in Notting Hill and continued running her long-established private practice, until ill-health meant she had to stop. But although she is remembered for the dedicated attention she gave to patients, she kept her own breast cancer scare in the early 1990s to herself.

Her children were shocked to find out about it only after she had been in hospital to have a benign lump removed. Barnes’s modesty was legendary, but she also had a great appetite for fun and an occasional dose of glamour. Her delight was evident recently when she was invited to tea with the Queen, and afterwards she was full of the conversation she had had with Prince Philip, who sat next to her – an exchange marred only by a dog under the table nibbling her toe.

Josephine was just so angry at what was happening to all the Poor People, especially the women. An anger best expressed by tea at the Palace.

She is remembered also roaring up country lanes in the open sports car she bought herself and drove – she took it for a trial circuit at Brands Hatch – until she gave up driving aged 85.

While thinking about all those Poor People.

Given her commitment to the rights of women to have their particular health needs taken seriously,

So that’s why there is just so much dissatisfaction with women’s healthcare and has been for such a long time…

Dame Josephine has been remarkably little noted as a heroine of the feminist movement, presumably because she did not align herself that way.

It might be because they would find it very difficult to mould a heroine acceptable to them out of Josephine. They had great trouble doing it with Thatch. Jane Hutt couldn’t retain any credibility by unveiling a plaque commemorating Josephine.

But however she chose to describe herself,

She was a Lady Doctor.

she did a great deal to demonstrate that a woman could get to the top of her male-dominated profession, and to improve the healthcare of women in general.

She demonstrated that one well-connected, very hard working extremely determined woman could, while she told as many lies about the ‘healthcare of women’ as her male colleagues did. At no time did Dame Josephine mention the War.

Now here’s a fun thing, the obituary of Sir Brian Warren, Josephine’s ex-husband and the father of her children, as published in ‘The Independent’ on Aug 23, 1996. Just after William Hague announced the forthcoming Waterhouse Inquiry.

Brian Warren was one of the most prominent and fashionable London general practitioners of his day. It was his wit, warmth and no-nonsense wisdom (to which as his son-in-law for 15 years, I was privy) that made him so popular a doctor among his largely well-to-do patients, many of whom also inevitably became his lifelong friends.

Not least among them was Sir Edward Heath, who first became his patient as a young post-war Tory MP, and with whom Warren travelled the world a quarter of a century later as personal physician to the prime minister for four heady years. When Heath visited China in May 1974 it was his doctor and close friend whom he left behind to supervise the safe passage to London Zoo of two giant pandas, in the vain hope that they might breed in captivity.

Josephine’s husband was a friend of and Top Doc to Ted Heath! So Sir Brian concealed and colluded with organised abuse and could have answered those questions about Heath’s own activities; Warren undoubtedly knew everything that was happening…

Political soulmates, who differed only over Heath’s need to lose weight,
Good to know that Heath’s time as a disastrous PM, particularly with regard to N Ireland, was, in Sir Brian’s eyes, completely unproblematic, the biggest problem being Ted refusing to sign up for Fat Fighters.
prime minister and physician also shared a profound passion for music – happily symbolised during the Downing Street years by the after-dinner madrigals laid on by Warren’s other son-in-law, Martin Neary, organist and choirmaster of Winchester Cathedral, then Westminster Abbey.
Meanwhile Josephine became angrier and angrier about the plight of The Poor. Martin Gerard James Neary (born 28 March 1940) was Organist and Director of Music at Winchester Cathedral, 1972-88 and Organist and Master of the Choristers at Westminster Abbey, 1988-98. Neary read theology and music at Cambridge University. As the organist at Westminster Abbey, Neary was the musical director of the funeral service for Diana, for which he was appointed n LVO in 1998.

On 22 April 1998, Wesley Carr, the Dean of Westminster Abbey, dismissed Neary from his position at  Westminster Abbey on the grounds of gross misconduct regarding the finances of a company that he and his wife – Sir Brian and Dame Josephine’s daughter?? –  had set up to administer fees from concerts at the Abbey. Neary petitioned Lilibet, as Visitor of the Abbey, to resolve the dispute. Lilibet appointed Lord Charles Jauncey to be her Commissioner. Lord Jauncey determined that the summary dismissal was justified. The report also stated that Neary’s well recognised musical abilities and the hard work which he and his wife had done on behalf of the Abbey and the choir were not in question. So Neary and his wife were fiddling, but he’d done Di’s funeral and his father-in-law was Ted Heath’s Top Doctor and was involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, so no-one could be too rude about the Nearys.

  • The Martin Neary Singers recently made a nostalgic return to Downing Street at the dinner hosted by John Major in honour of Heath’s 80th birthday.
Sir Brian Warren, the Top Doc who hangs out with the PMs who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring… Including John Major who oversaw the massively rigged Waterhouse Inquiry, by which time Sir Brian had died, but Josephine was still appearing on TV.
 
Born in Toddington, Bedfordshire in 1914, the elder son of an East Anglian gentleman farmer, Warren inherited from his mother a lifelong love of the countryside in all its aspects. A countryman at heart, forced to live, work and garden primarily in the city, he could always identify the rarest bird and the most obscure flower. His knowledge of literature and music was as formidable, combining with his personal style to create an elegant gentleman of an unashamedly old school, proud of maintaining immaculate standards in every department of his life.
He might well have been a soldier or a politician rather than a general practitioner. From Bishop’s Stortford School he went to University College, London, to read History, only later transferring to Medicine at University College Hospital. At this time he met the talented young doctor whom he married in 1942, Josephine Barnes (now Dame Josephine, one of Britain’s most distinguished gynaecologists), with whom he had two daughters and a son. She was to be the first of Warren’s two wives; after their divorce in 1964 he married a fellow Westminster councillor, Anne Marsh, with whom he had two more sons before her untimely death in 1983.
Westminster City Council became notorious during the 1980s for endemic corruption, which reached its zenith under the leadership of Dame Shirley Porter. Readers might remember that Dame Shirley was caught bang to rights, fined millions and buggered off to live in Israel in order to evade paying the fine. Dame Shirley quietly returned to the UK a few years later.
The GLC and the Labour Party loathed Shirley Porter, but it didn’t matter how serious the corruption that was revealed, the Dame remained bulletproof. The Dame was a big fan of Thatch. As ever, none who desperately wanted to see the back of Dame Shirley would reveal the one thing that would have got rid of her: that Westminster City Council were colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and had been for years. Before St George’s Hospital relocated to Tooting in 1980, it was located in the constituency of Westminster City Council. There was even a Councillor for St George’s ward. Not a word about the serious wrongdoing. A number of Westminster City Councillors were of course Top Doctors. One of them being Ted Heath’s personal physician.

The majority of Warren’s distinguished war service, which earned him a mention in despatches, was spent on active service as medical officer to the 1st Battalion, Grenadier Guards. Among the first troops to enter Berlin in 1945, he was then transferred to Bonn as Deputy Director of Medical Services with the Guards Armoured Division.

There was probably quite a difference between Warren’s idea of a tumbledown house and most other people’s idea of a tumbledown house; the fact that it was in Belgravia is a bit of a giveaway. The Belgravia of St George’s Hospital, Sir Peter Morrison, the Duke of Westminster, Lord Lucan…

Never too much of a health fanatic, he was more of a common-sense doctor, believing quite literally that a little of what you fancy does you good.
Dafydd takes the same view with his more privileged patients. Kiddie sex, class A drugs, anything goes…
His tirelessly sympathetic bedside manner also helped to turn demanding patients into friends.
They were Prime Ministers living in Belgravia, Warren wasn’t going to run out of sympathy with them, no matter how much they whinged on about minor symptoms. It must have been useful having PMs as his mates as well.
As well as Heath, his early patients included the then editor of ‘The Times’, Sir William Haley and other rising young Tories such as Enoch Powell.
This is looking rather worrying for Warren and his Lady Doctor wife and their children and spouses/ex-spouses who are still with us. Heath has been the subject of a major police investigation and no matter how much ‘The Daily Mail’ and the Torygraph insult the people who made allegations that Heath himself was a child abuser, Heath definitely did conceal some very, very serious crimes against children and others. As for Enoch, well even his biggest fans admitted that he was an odd, difficult man. Less sympathetic people have made serious allegations and whatever the truth with regard to those are, like Heath, Powell concealed serious crime and was persuaded by someone for some reason to leave Dafydd and Gwynne well alone. Brian Warren knew the full story.
With the arrival of the National Health Service in 1948, Warren’s political convictions led him to remain in private practice,
Warren was someone who opposed the NHS then, unlike his wife who was fuming at the plight of the Poor in their slums. Warren was the sort of Top Doc who so angered Uncle Harry, Julian Tudor-Spart and Dannie Abse. The Socialist Medical Association will have had a great deal of dirt on Warren, his wife and those Prime Ministers who were patients of Warren’s. They never uttered a word, although Warren was a Tory who opposed Nye’s creation.
Listen to the sound of silence Poster | hoon_from_the_moon ...
as well as running for Westminister City Council, which he served with distinction for 30 years, many as chairman of the health committee.
Er, remember that paedophile ring which was facilitated by St George’s staff, including Dame Josephine’s colleague Geoffrey Chamberlain?
Warren was a leading long-serving member of a Council notorious for its corrupt practices…
In 1959, after four years as a local councillor, he made his one attempt to become an MP, with an inevitably doomed assault on Marcus Lipton’s Labour stronghold in Brixton.
Previous posts have discussed how the Councillors and MPs in south London facilitated the partner gangs of Dafydd’s gang who were operating in south London, sending kids in care to north Wales children’s homes, who were then trafficked back down to London as rent boys/sex workers. Marcus Lipton was one of those who colluded with it. The south London ring was being facilitated in particular by Top Docs from St George’s, Springfield and the Maudsley Hospitals and Wandsworth, Southwark and Lambeth Borough Councils. Other hospitals and Councils were colluding.

By the 1970s, when his old friend Ted Heath was elected to Downing Street, Warren was already a familiar and popular figure at senior Tory gatherings.

Warren’s old mate had become PM! Warren’s boat had well and truly come in then.

On Heath’s first day in office, he was summoned to attend to a cigarette burn inflicted by a dissident in the crowd as the new Prime Minister arrived at Tory Central Office.

That must have been a trauma for old Ted. I can imagine what would have been said to an Empowered Service User in Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon if they had sustained a cigarette burn and demanded that a Top Doc be summoned. Of course Empowered Service Users did sustain cigarette burns, constantly. Not from dissidents, but because Empowered Service Users are nearly all very heavy smokers and at the same time they are completely drugged up with anti-psychotics by the Top Docs, which results in loss of sensation from pain receptors. I used to watch as burning the ash from lit cigarettes would fall onto their fingers and hands and burn them without the Empowered Service Users realising until they had been injured, because they hadn’t felt anything. I saw Angels watching the same thing and I witnessed Top Docs sat in front of those patients who’s hands were covered in burns and said nothing about it.

Empowered Service Users in north Wales were frequently denied any treatment for anything, except of course for their Paranoid Schizophrenia, for which they would be loaded up with anti-psychotics… Kidney stones? Go and lie on your bed and stop making a fuss. Three day migraine? Go and lie down then, on that bed with a bright light directly above it which is switched on for 24 hours a day. Heart attack? There’s no-one in the place who knows what to do although it’s a hospital…

Meanwhile staff are going on Mindfulness retreats to Reduce Anxiety and Stress.

Kids in children’s homes in north Wales who had anal injuries were told by Top Docs that they had ‘piles’. Kids were bashed in the mouth with the buts of guns. Kids had broken bones and were not taken to a Top Doctor, not even one which would diagnose piles in the event of a ruptured anus.

Ooh you do look stressed Prime Minister, is it N Ireland again? Here, have a little sit down and de-stress for a while.

Standard Gov’t Issue Foot Spa, distributed to all Gov’t Ministers, Civil Service mandarins and Top Docs, as laid down by guidelines drawn up under Richard Crossman:

Foot or Heath, it didn’t matter, they were both concealing the crimes of Dafydd et al.

In Brussels, 18 months later, he was again on hand when an assailant threw a pot of printer’s ink at the prime minister as he arrived to sign the Treaty of Accession.

I remember watching that on TV. Since when has a bottle of ink spilt on one’s jacket needed a Top Doc? Wouldn’t a laundry person have been more appropriate?

Knighted in Heath’s farewell honours in 1974,

For services rendered. Josephine became a Dame as well, although she and Brian had been divorced for ten years.

Warren remained characteristically loyal to his old friend during the trials of the Thatcher years, while also maintaining friendships with other senior Tories who survived the transition, notably Lords Whitelaw and Pym.

Whitelaw has featured frequently on this blog. He concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al for decades and decades, including during both of his goes at being Home Secretary, both of his goes at being Lord President of the Council, as Chairman of the Tory Party and as Deputy PM. Willie colluded with the elite paedophile ring at Kincora when he served as N Ireland Secretary. Willie was mates with Trumpers, who in turn was mates with Jimmy Savile and appointed Savile to the general management task force for Broadmoor. See previous posts.

Francis Pym dared dissent from Thatcherism, formed Centre Forward and was never heard of again. I will return to Francis Pym in a future blog post.

Not until the late 1970s did Warren begin to wind down his practice, gradually returning to his first loves of reading and music, gardening and travel…

Harold Brian Seymour Warren, general practitioner: born Toddington, Bedfordshire 19 December 1914; Personal Physician to the Prime Minister 1970-74; kt 1974; married 1942 Josephine Barnes (marriage dissolved 1964; one son, two daughters), 1964 Anne Marsh (died 1983; two sons); died London 18 August 1996.

 

The son-in-law of Sir Brian’s who penned that obituary for Warren was Anthony Holden, known for writing toadying books about the Royals. Anthony Holden was born in Southport, Lancashire and educated at Oundle School and Merton College, Oxford. A number of key people linked with Dafydd et al, including Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, went to Oundle. See previous posts.

Holden worked as a journalist for many years. He began his career as a graduate trainee on Thomson Regional Newspapers’ ‘Hemel Hempstead Evening Post-Echo’. Holden covered the trial at St Albans of the ‘psychopathic poisoner’, Graham Young. Young was in the hands of Dafydd’s mates at Broadmoor, so whoever could know what the truth behind the Graham Young case was? Holden will have known that those proffering their opinions on Young were a gang of sex abusers who regularly lied on oath, forged records and planted evidence.

Holden was named Young Journalist of the Year in 1972 and was on the staff of ‘The Sunday Times’, 1973–79. Ted Heath’s Top Doc’s son-in-law. Holden was commended in the British Press Awards in 1976 as News Reporter of the Year for his work in N Ireland – Ted Heath’s Top Doc’s son-in-law – and won Columnist of the Year in 1977. Holden was Washington Correspondent and US editor of ‘The Observer’, 1979–81, Assistant Editor of ‘The Times’, 1981–82, Executive Editor, ‘Today’, 1985–86 and chief classical music critic of ‘The Observer’, 2002–08.

Ted Heath’s Top Doc’s son-in-law.

In 1999–2000 Holden was an inaugural Fellow of the Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library. Holden was a member of the Board of Governors of the South Bank Centre, 2002–8, during the landmark renovation programme under the Chairmanship of Lord Hollick. Since 2006 Holden has been a Trustee of Shakespeare North Trust.

Holden has also made frequent appearances on TV, presenting such documentaries as Charles at Forty (ITV, 1988), Anthony Holden on Poker (BBC 2, 1991) and Who Killed Tchaikovsky? (Omnibus, BBC 1, 1993). In the mid-1980s Holden presented a weekly BBC Radio 4 chat show, In the Air.

Holden’s papers are collected at Boston University’s Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center.

Can Anthony Holden now tell all with regard to the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the branch of it that destroyed north Wales, which ‘didn’t exist’ throughout all those years that his in-laws Sir Brian and Dame Josephine helped facilitate it?

Perhaps the offspring of Sir Brian and Dame Josephine could add to Anthony’s account…

I didn’t know your in-laws Holden, but I did work with their colleagues and friends and they should never have been allowed near the rest of the human race.

The President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 1992-93, was Wimmin’s Feminist Hero, Wendy Savage, who has featured previously on this blog (see eg. ‘The BMA and It’s Ethics’. Wendy Savage was much feted by wimmin in the 1980s when a huge dust up between Savage and her Head of Dept, resulted in Savage being suspended from work, after allegations of incompetence. There was only one way in which the story was reported in the media; it was a fight between a Woman who was giving other Wimmin choices in childbirth against a Male Medical Establishment that was forcing hi-tech births on Wimmin. The truth was that Savage and her Head of Dept hated each other and he would have done anything to get her out of her job. She won’t have been anymore incompetent than some of her colleagues, the charges will have been trumped up, but there were some very worrying aspects to Wendy Savage that never found their way into the media.
Wendy Savage worked at the London Hospital in Tower Hamlets and Dafydd’s ring were operating on that patch. She knew about it and said nothing. One reason why some Top Docs in London really disapproved of Wendy Savage was that she was known to be giving the same patients repeated abortions. Not just two or three times but 14 or 15 times. I was in the audience of a lecture given by Wendy Savage at St George’s in 1990 when she openly discussed doing this. She was angrily confronted by other Top Docs who told her that was she was doing was completely unacceptable. One female Top Doc was in tears. Another Top Doc walked out. Wendy was unrepentant.
Think of it. Wendy Savage was working with poor, uneducated women who from their early or mid-teens were repeatedly becoming pregnant, although they were in a terrible state and could not have ever cared for a baby; they didn’t even have anywhere to live. Dafydd’s gang were at work in the area. As with Dafydd’s colleagues in north Wales, the problems of these young women were attributed by Wendy to their ‘chaotic, dysfunctional lives’. Those women were in the hands of a trafficking gang, which Geoffrey Chamberlain and colleagues were facilitating at the London end of the business. Wendy Savage was friends with Chamberlain and much was made of Chamberlain’s support for Wendy Savage when WW III began after she was suspended from work.
Wendy Savage isn’t looking like quite so much of a Wimmin’s Champ now is she?
Wendy Savage knew what was going on, she knew all about it and was friends with those involved.
Wendy the Wimmin’s Champ also knew that women in north Wales were being unlawfully denied abortions and were being forced into the hands of a dangerous private abortionist or a sex trafficker. She said nothing.

Savage read medicine at Girton College, Cambridge. She qualified in 1960 and was the first woman consultant to be appointed in obstetrics and gynaecology at the London Hospital. She has worked in the United States of America, Nigeria, Kenya, and New Zealand. In New Zealand she set up an abortion service before the law was liberalised. Does that mean ‘when abortion was illegal’ Wendy?

Wendy was an elected member of the GMC for more than 16 years. As the complaints about Dafydd et al rolled in and were not acted upon, as documentation was forged…

Savage was shortlisted for the BMJ Group Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009.

Savage’s wiki entry tells us that ‘In 1985, she was accused of incompetence by the Professor in her Department (Professor Jurgis Gediminas Grudzinskas) and suspended from her post at the London Hospital Medical College, but she was cleared of all charges and reinstated in 1986 following a high-profile enquiry. A BMJ editorial concluded that a clash of personalities had led to the charges against Dr Savage.

“Mrs Savage’s strongly held and voiced opinions on women’s rights to a say in their method of delivery and in their rights to abortion made her a public and at times controversial figure; rumours of other sources of conflict with her colleagues have ranged from style of dress to private practice.”

Savage herself wrote about her experiences. Her later book, Birth and Power, revisits the issues which her suspension raised’.

Wendy Savage is a publicly elected Governor for Islington in the Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust and was further elected by her fellow Governors to serve on the Remuneration and Nominations Committee, which then chose her as Chair of that Committee. She was also elected by Governors to serve on the Council of Governors’ Steering Committee.

Camden and Islington was not only the stronghold of the Bloomsbury Group and years later New Labour, but the poor parts of that area were notorious for brothels and prostitution. Islington and Camden were host to a paedophile ring with links to Dafydd’s gang and to the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The mental health services in Islington and Camden colluded with the paedophile ring. As in north Wales, the ring in Islington was run by gangsters so nasty that witnesses were murdered.

In 2004, when those terrible Gov’t figures for suicide were released which confirmed that Dr Tony Roberts’s patch in north Wales had the highest suicide rate for women in England and Wales except for one other area, it was explained that the only area with an even higher suicide rate for women was Camden. It won’t have been the residents of Hampstead dropping like flies, it will have been the Empowered Service Users who had the chaotic, dysfunctional lives as they were terrorised by gangsters working with Top Doctors.

In 2017, the Mail On Sunday published a critical article with regard to Wendy Savage’s stance on abortion. The BPAS told the Indie which wrote about the Mail on Sunday’s story that it was “totally appalled” by the Mail on Sunday’s front page “demonising Wendy Savage, a doctor who has devoted her life to supporting pregnant women.” The Indie further quoted the BPAS as saying: “We stand by Wendy Savage and are forever grateful for all she has done for pregnant women over a career spanning decades.”

A vicious international trafficking gang targeting children and vulnerable women as well as men. They killed one of my friends, tried to kill Brown and his brother and tried to kill me because I said no to sex with the two disgusting old Top Docs running the north Wales part of it. Wendy was friends with the people running the bit in London.

When I was working at St George’s, I found out that a lot of medical students, male and female, didn’t like Wendy Savage, but nobody would ever explain why…

 Wendy Savage is a high profile supporter of the Labour Party and God do they like having a Socialist Top Doctor on their side.
When Wendy Savage was battling with her boss back in the 1980s, I had no idea at all that Top Docs in London were involved with Dafydd. I have explained in previous posts that during 1987, Dafydd was ringing me up in Leicester trying to get me to drop my complaint about him. He told me that if I didn’t withdraw the complaint he would have me arrested and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre. I laughed in his face so he changed tactics and later told me how wonderful I was and that if I dropped my complaint about him he would get me a place at Liverpool Medical School. Dafydd named the Professor who would fix it all up. I was so gobsmacked that I just ended the call. Before Dafydd made his wonderful offer, he told me that I reminded him of Wendy Savage, a ‘robust, clever woman’ and he then said ‘they’ve had to reinstate her, she’s beaten them all, I feel like writing to her and congratulating her’. I asked Dafydd ‘So why haven’t you?’ and Dafydd changed the conversation.
I was always told of Dafydd’s serious criminal associates ‘we all know who they are, but there is never anything on paper’. Not even a letter of congratulation to one of them for getting away with it and being constructed as a Wimmin’s Champ…
Wendy Savage wrote the foreword to Dr Ann Dally’s account of her Own True Story regarding Dally’s ordeal at the hands of the Male Medical Establishment. Ann Dally found herself in hot water in the 1980s after she was found to be flogging class A drugs to anyone who could afford to pay. Like Dafydd, Dally offered a full service, including Reports for the Court and Social Services etc. Dally’s husband Peter was Princess Margaret’s Top Doctor. Wendy was right behind Ann Dally, although Wendy Opposes Private Practice and Ann and Peter Dally were Harley Street Docs who gave up NHS work when they were young. The man who extracted Ann Dally from trouble was Bing Spear, the corrupt Civil Service mandarin who for years was the mandarin at the top of the Home Office’s Drugs Branch. Bing was also the man who looked after Dafydd. Ann Dally was suspended by the GMC but reinstated. See post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’.
Bing Spear died in July 1995, four days apart from the discovery of Peter Morrison’s dead body. Brown was sacked from his job at Aston University in the same month. In north Wales, Tony Francis was planning to have me transferred to a secure unit because of the ‘danger’ that I represented to Dafydd. Dafydd ‘retired’ from the NHS in July 1995… See post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’
What was the REAL reason for Prof Wendy Savage’s Head of Dept, Prof Grudzinskas, suspending her and fighting tooth and nail to prevent her from teaching again when he was forced to reinstate her? Savage was suspended in 1985. The year that I fell out with Tony Francis and began contacting MPs about the north Wales mental health services.
Prof Grudzinskas, the man who tried to end Savage’s career, now works at St George’s Hospital.

Wendy Savage was Co-chair of the pressure group Keep Our NHS Public. Keep Our NHS Public (KONP) is a campaigning organisation, with local groups across England, committed to reversing the ongoing privatisation of the NHS and its services. The group was founded in 2005 by the NHS Consultants Association, the NHS Support Federation and Health Emergency. KONP has local groups which are involved in campaigns against the closure or reorganisation of local hospitals, such as the Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign. Lewisham Hospital had an appalling safety record and was millions and millions in debt. None of the ‘turn-around’ plans had worked over many years. Lewisham Hospital is located on the turf of the south London gang linked to Dafydd et al. KONP attracted support from many existing health related campaigns such as Save Finsbury Health Centre. Finsbury in Islington that is… KONP has been very vocal in denouncing the use of private health providers to treat patients outside the health service.

The NHS Support Federation is a pressure group, founded in 1989 which campaigns “to protect and improve the NHS, keeping it true to its founding principles.” It is based in Brighton and helped to establish the Keep Our NHS Public campaign. Uncle Harry aka Professor Harry Keen was the President of the Federation and an active member for many years. The NHS Support Federation monitors the NHS tendering processes. Jeremy Corbyn cited the work of the Federation in his re-election campaign in 2016 as showing that £16 billion in NHS contracts had been awarded “through the market” since April 2013. Jeremy is an Islington MP and has also served as a member of an NHS Authority for the Islington and Camden area.

In 2018 Wendy Savage was awarded the BMJ Award for Outstanding Contribution to Health. After I had blogged about her and her colleagues…
If I was you lot, I’d fuck off and keep quiet, never mind giving each other any more silly awards. You have been revealed for what you are.
Say what you like about Uncle Harry and his mates, they were committed to the NHS and they really were determined to save it from the Tories. They did all they could to fight those who wanted to Destroy The NHS With Cuts. Honest, they did…

The Wrong Set

My post ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’ discussed Professor Hugh Freeman, a Top Doctor who worked in Manchester for most of his life and was a consultant psychiatrist to the city’s hospitals, 1961-88. Hugh Freeman was Editor of the British Journal of Psychiatry for many years.

In 1974, Dafydd’s friend and former boss Dr Bob Hobson relocated from the Maudsley, where he had facilitated organised abuse, to join Freeman et al in Manchester. Readers will be able to guess what Hobson did after he arrived to work in Greater Manchester, where an abuse ring was already in existence and had been for years under the regime of Freeman and his colleagues. See post ‘The Mentor’.

After the Children Act 1975 was passed, hundreds and hundreds  of kids in care were sent to children’s homes in north Wales from big metropolitan centres in England, including Manchester. Social workers who trained at what became Salford University took jobs in the children’s homes in north Wales and one student social worker from Salford blew the whistle on the abuse of kids in care that he witnessed in north Wales. Excuses were made to invalidate him and no action was taken. His testimony was undermined at the Waterhouse Inquiry. What later became Salford University continued to send social work students on placement to north Wales. See previous posts.

Greater Manchester mental health services were in a very sorry state. As with north Wales this was known but the official line was that things were good and getting even better as Hugh Freeman performed his magic there. The reality was that like north Wales, the situation was truly appalling, patients were at risk and had been for years; the mental health services in Manchester imploded some years ago and the Top Doctor Chairing the mental health Trust was forced to resign. However he remained in his post as a consultant psychiatrist leading the mental health research programme in Manchester. See post ‘The Mentor’.

Hugh Freeman’s charnel house supplied north Wales with mad and abusive Top Docs. The genocidal Dr Tony Roberts was a Manchester product, as was Dr Sadie Francis. Tony Francis trained with Dafydd’s mate Professor Kenneth Rawnsley in Cardiff – who before then had been working in Manchester (see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’) – then Francis popped over to the Maudsley to work with Dafydd’s mates there and after that Tony Francis joined Bob Hobson and Hugh Freeman’s trafficking gang before finding his true home in north Wales…

Not only was Hugh Freeman responsible for the killing machine that was the Greater Manchester psychiatric services, but Freeman was Vice Chairman of MIND, 1984-88, spanning the years when Mary Wynch successfully sued Dafydd and the gang thus making legal history and when Brown and I were raising our concerns and receiving threats from Top Docs as a result. Alison Taylor also began to blow the whistle as loudly as she could during the years that Freeman served as MIND’s Vice-Chair. Dafydd’s pal Lord David Ennals was Chairman of MIND, 1984-89. MIND provided complete protection for Dafydd and other Top Docs involved in organised abuse and criminality.

Professor Hugh Freeman was involved in serious crime and was in addition protecting other people who were. To ensure that waters became even muddier as the world gradually woke up to the possibility that the organised abuse of children and vulnerable people was a considerable problem, Freeman founded the False Memory Society, which was the end for anyone who actually wanted to get to the bottom of who was sexually exploiting who.

As police investigations began into the paedophile/trafficking rings across the UK whom Freeman and his colleagues had been protecting, Hugh Freeman did what all the best Top Doctors realised that it was their duty to do; Freeman became an Historian of Medicine. Thus Freeman and his mates began writing the history of their own abusive, genocidal services to enable people to understand that psychiatry was grim at some point in the dim and distant past but it Is Different Now because We Arrived. The recent history of psychiatry has not been accurately recorded in work of this nature and no-one at all has explained that the Enlightened Top Docs writing this history were trained by and worked for some real butchers and continued the butchery using different diagnoses and ‘treatments’. The abuse and neglect of patients did not stop and the outcomes for seriously ill patients did not improve.

The acknowledged excesses of Top Docs like William Sargant which psychiatry is doing its best to forget about did not take place in the dark ages, it took place until well into the 1960s and furthermore Dr Death worked as Sargant’s research register. Sargant was bad even by the standards of the Top Docs; he conducted crazy experiments which killed patients. See post ‘Dr Death’. No-one mentioned a word as the appalling Dr Death became Foreign Secretary, then did all that he could to become PM via the SDP. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’

There was also a paedophile/trafficking ring at Tommy’s where Sargant and Dr Death were working, with links to Dafydd et al. Dafydd’s mate Professor Jim Watson the ‘sex therapist’ worked at the Maudsley, then at St George’s, then at Guy’s and Tommy’s… See previous posts.

This lot were all protecting each other and I realised some time ago that the history of psychiatry written by them and their mates was flaky indeed. What I didn’t realise was that other historians, very big names as well, were fully on board with these abusive Top Docs and knew at least some of what they were doing.

When Hugh Freeman decided to become an historian, he did a lot of work with John Pickstone (who also published as John V. Pickstone). John Pickstone (29 May 1944 – 12 February 2014) was the Wellcome Research Professor in the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine at Manchester University. 

Pickstone was born and raised in Burnley, Lancashire. By the 1980s, Burnley was of course famous for poverty and inter-racial strife. What wasn’t discussed at the time was the trafficking ring which was operating across the wider region. After attending Burnley Grammar School, Pickstone studied Natural Sciences, especially Physiology, at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge and at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. Pickstone then completed an MSc in the History and Philosophy of Science at UCL in 1969 and then his PhD at Chelsea College London in 1974. Pickstone held fellowships at the University of Minnesota, 1971–73 and then at UCL, before moving in 1974 to UMIST to work on the history of hospitals in the Manchester region.

The Tory peer Baroness Beryl Platt served as Vice-President of UMIST, 1984-92. See post ‘Stations of the Crass’. Whereas Trumpers found herself in receipt of a peerage after many years of colluding with the elite abuse ring of Cambridge (see previous posts eg. ’95 Glorious Years!’), Beryl Platt was offered a peerage after many years of colluding with the elite abuse ring of Essex/Suffolk. Rab Butler was for decades the Tory MP for Saffron Walden in Beryl’s part of the world. After retiring as an MP, Rab served as Master of Trinity College, Cambridge for many years, including while Carlo was a student there, for whom Rab was special mentor. One celebrity drug abuser and HIV infected user of sex workers on Beryl’s turf was Lord Bristol aka John Jermyn Hervey. Lord Bristol’s brother Nicholas Hervey didn’t share Lord Bristol’s many vices but he did know what his brother got up to. Nicholas was found hanging in his Chelsea flat in his mid-30s after his life was destroyed as a result of help from the Top Doctors. John Allen lived on Beryl’s manor before he opened the Bryn Alyn Community in north Wales. See post ‘The Vermin Club’. Top Doc John W. Paulley and his wife Deirdre supplied the dangerous experimental ‘treatments’ and ‘psychological help’ for the ‘disturbed’ on Beryl’s patch. Paulley was one of the people who sparked off the development of the University of Buckingham, Thatch’s dream of a private university, of which Thatch eventually became Chancellor. See post ‘The International Language of Screaming’. Thatcher gave both Trumpers and Platt their peerages.

 

John Pickstone, like me, pursued an education in the biomedical sciences as well as the humanities. He knew as well as I do how much fraud, deception and plagiarism there is in medical research and he knew that this has had and continues to have very serious consequences for patients. Like me, Pickstone could have named some of the biggest offenders in terms of unscrupulous practice which has resulted in patient harm. I can see from his biography that he worked in institutions where this was endemic and which employed some of those who had worked or were working with Dafydd and the gang. Dafydd and pals are known to many at UCL…

No matter how interesting John Pickstone’s work is, there are huge areas of the histories of the medical services which he has studied that he did not dare mention. Like the people who ‘wrote the history of the mental health services in north Wales’, Pickstone omitted much of the ‘history of hospitals in the Manchester region’. I understand that Pickstone could not publish the sort of material that I have published on this blog in academic fora and he would have to be very careful indeed if he were to name individuals, because unlike me he hasn’t acquired 10,000 documents which detail serious organised crime and wrongdoing in the NHS and associated services over 30 years. However, there is a great deal more that John Pickstone could have published, in the way that the historians of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh did not have to dribble on about the Caring within. It was a notoriously abusive institution and the stuff of nightmares, even by the standards of its time.

This sort of ‘history of medicine’ is not just dishonest, it is an absolute insult to people who suffered at the hands of those violent, abusive sex offenders who’s ‘excellence’ is documented. I and a few others who knew what went on at the North Wales Hospital passed some of the ‘history’ that had been written about that institution around between ourselves observing ‘have you read this, it is certainly not where we spent those weeks is it??’

Lest readers believe that it doesn’t matter if fairy stories are written about Dafydd, Gwynne and Hugh Freeman now that they are nearly dead or dead, it matters very much, because the work of historians of medicine, including John Pickstone, is now being used to inform policy. That is of course why funding is available for people who want to publish along the lines of ‘ah the doctors they were wonderful’ or ‘it’s different these days…’

The Wellcome Trust funds a great deal of work in the field of history of medicine. The Wellcome Trust also funds Top Doctors and other people who have kept quiet about matters that should have been made public and stopped. Then there’s the question of who it is exactly who occupies senior positions at the Wellcome Trust…

It was no coincidence that Dafydd’s gang and their associates tripped over themselves to become historians of medicine when police investigations began into allegations that a VIP paedophile ring was in operation in north Wales…

We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us. When our appalling track records as Top Doctors can no longer be concealed in terms of clinical outcomes, we’ll become historians and bloody well conceal it in that way.

There is a difference between situations in which people who did some regrettable things during their lives are allowed to rest in peace as it were once they have died and are afforded privacy and dignity and the conscious rewriting of history to enable the serious criminality of an international syndicate who caused untold harm and subverted the entire health and care system for their own purposes to be entirely forgotten.

Furthermore, if we faithfully document that Mindfulness was responsible for miracles in north Wales and that the patients received much better care in the community once the asylums were closed and that Patients Are Now Empowered, we will never improve services. Er – anyone noticed that the Gov’t is in a blue funk because the mental health services just do not work and the maternity services are not much better… Then there’s the inexplicable failure to improve the outcomes for cancer patients… the stubborn problems presented by ‘difficult’ children or those in care…the puzzling reality that Prison Doesn’t Work no matter What Is Done… the statistics relating to the continued dreadful outcomes for people with severe mental illness or learning difficulties…

You can’t formulate policy on the basis of lies and you can’t improve services if those who have screwed up so disastrously are relied upon to formulate future policy and then colonise the discipline of history to boot…

 

In 1985/86 Pickstone moved to the Victoria University of Manchester (later known as the University of Manchester after the merger with UMIST in 2004) and established the Centre for the History of Science and Technology (CHSTM), including the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine and the National Archive for the History of Computing before directing the Centre until 2002, when Pickstone became a Research Professor.

Latterly, Pickstone published mainly on modern medical history, e.g. cancer and medical technology but also on regional history of science, technology and medicine. Pickstone edited the Cambridge University Press History of Science volume on ‘Modern Earth and Life Sciences’ (2008) with Peter Bowler.

During 2007-08, Pickstone’s work attracted international attention in Washington, DC , Yale University, Pennsylvania, Paris, Maastricht, Berlin and Mexico. With friends at Manchester Metropolitan University, John Pickstone planned a major local history festival for 2009.

Pickstone’s research interests mostly included aspects of recent medicine, such as the Wellcome project on the history of cancer in Britain, work on medical technology, the history of the mental health services and a collaborative project regarding recent changes in the NHS.

Pickstone became increasingly interested in the uses of history for health policy… Which is why Hugh Freeman wanted to work with John Pickstone.

When marvelling at how Hugh Freeman the dodgy doc who presided over such shameful practices managed to become networked with credible historians who found money thrown in their direction, we need to remember that Freeman was Vice-Chairman of MIND while Lord David Ennals was Chairman and they concealed much criminality together. David Ennals had by then enjoyed a long career in Gov’t, including posts as a Home Office Minister, a Minister in the DHSS, a Minister in the Foreign Office and then as Secretary of State for the DHSS under Jim Callaghan. David Ennals was a key member of the Ennals-Barbara Castle-Jack Straw troika who covered up a great deal of crap throughout their entire careers. See previous posts. That was the Labour Party branch of the heap of crap. The Tories took care of the crap involving posh people with links to the Royal Family.

Ah Hugh Freeman he was wonderful! The historians are all agreed!

 

History is written by the winners as any fule kno, even John Pickstone. That is why Trumpers ‘worked at Bletchley Park decoding messages’. Although Trumpers did no such thing. It’s why a pub was named after Lord Tonypandy aka George Thomas, what with George Thomas having made such a huge contribution to Wales. There is now a campaign to change the name of that pub, because it has finally been admitted that George Thomas was a child molester. It’s why the Women’s Archive Wales wants to discover the Hidden Histories of Wimmin, although not those wimmin who have been declared heroines but who actually did some pretty dreadful things.

  •  Shall we just stop telling lies about people who have done awful things even if they are wimmin?

  • Here’s Harold Wilson, remembered at St George’s Square:

      •  Uncle Harry’s hero Nye remembered in Cardiff after a bird crapped on him:

  • With Chris Philo, John Pickstone wrote ‘Unpromising Configurations: towards local historical geographies of psychiatry’. Chris Philo is Professor of Geography at Glasgow University. Philo graduated from Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University and worked as a Research Fellow there. In 1989 Chris Philo joined the Department of Geography at the University of Wales, Lampeter and remained there until 1995. Lampeter was located in the region of the abuse ring in west Wales which was linked to Dafydd’s gang and some members of staff at Lampeter were concealing the ring.
  • Philo then joined Glasgow University. Philo’s interests have been in the historical geographies of ‘madness’ and  mental health and mental health care provision. A devotee of the work of Michel Foucault, Chris Philo’s research extended and localised Foucault’s history of madness to England and Wales. I have no idea whether Chris Philo knows exactly what John Pickstone’s mate Professor Hugh Freeman was doing in Manchester, but Foucault could most usefully be applied to Freeman, Freeman’s colleague Tony Francis and of course to dear old Dafydd. No-one has yet done this…

I’ll have to put in for funding from the Wellcome Trust and do it myself because everyone else has just been so unfathomably slow despite the obvious huge potential of such a piece of work…

I do not know if Chris Philo is any relation of Greg Philo. Greg Philo was a member of the Glasgow Media Group and a generation ago the Glasgow Media Group published the ground-breaking work ‘Bad News’ and ‘More Bad News’, in which they analysed ‘impartial’ media news coverage and demonstrated bias throughout. For example, when covering industrial disputes, it was found that news readers said things such as ‘the unions demand’ and ‘the management request’. Brown introduced me to the work of the Glasgow Media Group when I was an undergrad and I used some of their strategies when confronting the Top Docs. ‘Dr Jones told us that…’, however, when I told Professor Bluglass that Dafydd had tried to bribe me into dropping my complaint about him, I had merely ‘claimed’. When I pointed out these inconsistencies, the Top Docs became very angry.

Top Docs! I was being polite. I could have just said ‘you’re a bunch of lying fucking crooks’. Which of course in the end I did say because it was so overwhelmingly obvious… One didn’t even need the help of the Glasgow Media Group.

The Tories subsequently used the work of the Glasgow Media Group’s analysis of language use for their own gain. It’s why we heard about ‘old fashioned’ trade unions when the police were beating up striking miners and the needs of a ‘modern’ economy. Did the Windbag take advantage of the Glasgow Media Group’s work? Er – well what do you think????

Thatch’s Gov’t was a ‘radical’ Gov’t as well…

As for the NHS, we now have the idiocy of Empowered Service Users. They are sectioned in locked wards against their will with fewer legal rights than people in prison… Cameron told us that the NHS and Social Care Act 2012 would Empower patients. Over-priced crap is sold to women because it will Empower us. And of course because we’re worth it.

Not so long ago I came across a report of some Angels who had Supported A Resident To Leave The Room. She was an old lady who hadn’t wanted to leave the room, so they had dragged her out physically while she tried to resist.

If Greg Philo has time on his hands perhaps he’d like to analyse every bit of propaganda published by the NHS over the last year, all the Empowering, the Caring, the Supporting, the Personalised Medicine Tailored To Your DNA and give us all a good laugh.

John Pickstone worked with the late Professor Roy Porter and Pickstone, with Roberta Bivins, edited a volume in honour of Porter in 2007.

Roy Porter was one of the biggest names in the history of medicine and there was a lot of sadness when he pegged out suddenly and unexpectedly, at only 55 yrs old, in March 2002. Porter had retired as Director of the Wellcome Institute of the History of Medicine at UCL in 2001. In the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report as there was still a wailing and a gnashing of teeth and shouts of ‘cover-up’… People did wonder why Roy Porter, a prolific workaholic with a truly impressive output, retired at the age of 54 and moved to St Leonards-on-Sea telling people that he was going to learn the saxophone and work on his allotment. St Leonards-on-Sea is in East Sussex, the turf of the partners-in-crime of Dafydd’s gang. The brothels to which John Allen trafficked the kids in care from north Wales were in Brighton.

Roy Sydney Porter was the son of a Bermondsey jeweller. He grew up in South London and attended Wilson’s School in Camberwell. Camberwell is on the doorstep of the Maudsley and the citizens of Camberwell were being targeted by the organised abuse which was facilitated by the dangerous idiots employed at the Maudsley. See posts ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’.  As the Top Docs at the Maudsley went through life destroying all those whom they touched, one of the things that they carried out was a community study of Camberwell…

Bermondsey was on the patch of Southwark Borough Council which was, by the 1970s, sending numerous kids in care to north Wales children’s homes. It was the territory of a group of utterly corrupt local Labour Councillors and politicians who had ruled the area for many years, the crew being led by Lord Bob Mellish. It was this lot whom Peter Tatchell challenged in the early 1980s, which resulted in the hate campaign against Thatchell when he stood as the Labour candidate in the 1983 Bermondsey by-election. See post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’. Everyone from across the political spectrum as well as the press joined in the attack on Tatchell, including Michael Foot, who was at the time the Labour Leader. Tatchell had very effectively revealed the endemic corruption of Mellish and his mates, yet not a word appeared about that in the media. As for the kids from Southwark who were sent to north Wales, one of them was sexually assaulted at gunpoint. No action was taken even after this and Southwark kids continued to find themselves being packed off to those lovely homes in north Wales with all that fresh Welsh air for their lungs…

I remember the 1983 Bermondsey by-election well. I was living on Anglesey and I had just encountered Dr D.G.E. Wood. Little did I know what was about to be unleashed. Brown was in the final year of his first degree at Aston University and had been receiving death threats. Tutors at Bangor, as well as D.G.E. Wood, simply ignored me when I told them that someone was threatening to murder Brown, even when that someone turned up at Brown’s room in hall armed with a swordstick, held Brown hostage, trashed his room and told him that he’d be back to finish him off….

That man later tried to kill Brown by repeatedly smashing Brown’s head on a pavement.

‘We didn’t know!’

UCNW was bugged by MI5 at the time. Since beginning this blog, I have received transcripts of my conversations with Wood and my tutor Adrian Bell on the occasions that I told them what was happening to Brown. So MI5 were standing back and waiting for Brown to be killed. While the bodies of psych patients and former kids in care were found regularly.

The Home Secretary in Feb 1983:

The Viscount Whitelaw of Short Sharp Shocks
William Whitelaw in 1963.jpg

On 11 June 1983, Lord Brittan of Sex Parties With Little Boys succeeded Willie as Home Secretary and Willie was appointed as Lord President of the Council. One of the roles of Lord President of the Council was that of visitor to the University of Wales, of which UCNW was a constituent college. Read more about Willie’s glorious career which involved numerous roles in which he concealed the criminality in north Wales in my post ‘Stations of the Crass’. He even had two goes at being Home Secretary and Lord President of the Council such was the trust invested in him not to put a stop to Dafydd and the gang.

On 11 June 1983, Trumpers, the pal of Jimmy Savile’s who later appointed Savile to the Broadmoor management task force when Trumpers was a junior Health Minister, was appointed Baroness-in-Waiting to Lilibet. Lilibet’s son Carlo was Chancellor of the University of Wales. Trumpers was mates with Willie and used to stay at his place in the Lake District.

It’s just..um…thingy…appalling…really…

Baroness Trumpington 2011.jpg

The other day someone told me that Willie Whitelaw ‘looked like an old pervert’ and that they could imagine him raping the boys at Bryn Estyn. One can’t judge a person on whether they look like an old pervert or not, although the method does work in the cases of Gwynne the lobotomist and Dafydd, but incredibly enough I was reminded of Willie Whitelaw when I watched that scene in the film ‘Mona Lisa’ years ago. The bit where a girl of about 12 is picked up by a sleazy old man with a plummy voice and he takes her to a posh hotel in central London and has his wicked way with her. After The Act, which I think was anal, he says in a Willie Whitelawesque tone ‘you didn’t enjoy that did you? Well you weren’t meant to’. I thought of Willie and the Short Sharp Shock at the time.

There’s also a bit in ‘Mona Lisa’ when Bob Hoskins takes the girl for a meal in a cafe and she orders an ice cream rather than a breakfast and he asks her if she wouldn’t like something more substantial. In reply she says ‘I can only eat ice cream now’. So Bob Hoskins says ‘what cha mean?’ And she says ‘You don’t know nuffink do you?’ Well I don’t know nuffink either, I’ve wondered ever since what that ice cream business was all about and Brown doesn’t know nuffink as well because he hasn’t been able to explain it.

Dafydd: what was the ice cream business about? Pray tell…

There’s another fine example of what might have happened to me had I succumbed to Dafydd’s employment in the film ‘Blue Velvet’. The scene where Frank pays a visit to the lady whom the gangsters have trapped into a sado-masochistic relationship with the dreadful Frank and Frank has sex with her after yelling ‘Baby wants to fuck’ and punching her in the face. Frank inhales something through a face mask while he’s having sex and I asked Brown what that was all about as well. Brown maintains that he doesn’t know, perhaps Frank suffers from breathing difficulties and needs extra oxygen when he’s having sex. I doubt it, like the scene in ‘Mona Lisa’, it is a reference to practices with which Dafydd and John Allen are well-acquainted but I’m not.

‘Dear Minister, I am expressing my deepest concerns with regard to the practices of the mental health services in north Wales.’

In north Wales there were hundreds and hundreds of complaints about children in care and psych patients being abused and neglected. This man was the middle manager who deflected all of them:

After A levels, Roy Porter went on to Christ’s College, Cambridge where he studied under J.H. Plumb. Porter’s contemporaries at Cambridge included Simon Schama and Andrew Wheatcroft.

Sir John (JackHarold Plumb (20 August 1911 – 21 October 2001) was known for his work on British 18th century history. Plumb was born in Leicester and educated at Alderman Newton’s School, Leicester, then at University College Leicester and finally at Christ’s College, Cambridge.

A paedophile ring in Leicestershire finally came to public awareness in Nov 1991 when the social worker Frank Beck, a pal of Greville Janner’s, was sentenced to five life terms for sexual and physical assaults against more than one hundred children in his care. Beck was sentenced to a further 24 years on seventeen charges of abuse, including rape. The Kirkwood Inquiry which followed Beck’s conviction admitted that there had been collusion with the abuse of children in Leicestershire on the part of the police, the Social Services and the City and County Councils. In 1987, Dr James Earp, a forensic psychiatrist in Leicester, concealed the criminality of Dafydd, Tony Francis and Gwynedd Social Services. See post ‘An Expert From England’. Earp was just a few years later named in a scandal when a convicted murderer escaped from Earp’s secure unit after receiving help to do this on the inside. See previous posts. There are indications that corrupt lawyers and Top Docs had been involved in ensuring that the convicted man was sent into the care of Earp rather than prison.

The Kirkwood Report failed to mention that the Top Docs, the education system, Leicester University and the local MPs also colluded with the ring in Leicestershire. There was an agreement between Andrew Kirkwood QC, who Chaired the Inquiry and Greville Janner, who had been interviewed by the police and by Kirkwood, that Janner would not be named in the Kirkwood Report. See previous posts.

Lord Robert Kilpatrick served as the Dean of the University of Leicester School of Medicine, 1973-89. The GMC headhunted Robert Kilpatrick in 1989 as their President, where he remained until 1995. The GMC went in pursuit of Kilpatrick the year that I began work at St George’s Medical School, which I have since been told again was part of an elaborate trap to get me out of medical research. St George’s was facilitating the elite end of the pan-European trafficking ring of which Dafydd’s gang were part. After I left St George’s, my former bosses Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain and Malcolm Pearce were caught in a huge research fraud scandal. The ‘research’, if it had not blown up in their faces, would have made them world-famous. Although Chamberlain’s name was on the paper which gave an account of a miraculous operation which had never taken place, only Malcolm was sacked and struck off. Chamberlain wasn’t touched by the GMC, with Kilpatrick as President and Chamberlain even gave evidence against Malcolm. But Chamberlain couldn’t be caught because he was friends with Cilla and more importantly Sir George Pinker, who was the Royal Gynaecologist and delivered William and Harry. See previous posts.

In 1989, the police launched an investigation into a paedophile ring in Leicestershire. In July 1989 Dafydd’s mate Robert Bluglass Chaired the hearing into my complaint about Dafydd et al, concluding that the only person who was responsible for all the whole business was me and that poor Dafydd had suffered unbearably as my wicked hands. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’. By 1989, Jimmy Savile had been installed as the General Manager of Broadmoor, thanks to the efforts of Trumpers.

Baroness Trumpington 2011.jpg

Kilpatrick was a Scottish doctor who didn’t only know every Top Doc worth knowing, but Kilpatrick also made friends with lots of grand people from a whole variety of professional backgrounds via his membership of elite golf clubs, including the Royal and Ancient in St Andrew’s, which has a big membership among the senior staff of St Andrew’s University. Dafydd’s mate Prof Robert Bluglass is a St Andrew’s graduate and Bluglass loves quaffing champagne in various old boys’ organisations. Kilpatrick had served as Dean of Sheffield Medical School, 1970-73, on Jimmy Savile’s patch, as well as President of the BMA. See post ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’ for details of Kilpatrick’s many links and more info on the shenanigans in Leicester.

Dear old Greville Janner and his family have featured many times on this blog previously and of course Greville’s name is constantly bandied about in the media in relation to the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The more astute also notice that Keith Vaz has served as a Leicester MP since 1987. I’ve blogged about Keith in previous posts and comments, the Keith who was the Labour MP for the constituency in which Brown and I lived when we shared a house in Leicester with friends in 1987. I have discussed in previous posts the aspects of Leicester life that were simply ignored by the professional and political classes, including sex shops and the feminist raids on them, forced marriage of teenaged girls who were running away from home in great numbers to avoid this, the unlawful working practices of the sweatshops that were in operation in our neighbourhood…

The media have concentrated so much on the allegations about Greville and the stench that accompanies Keith Vaz wherever he goes, that this man who served as the Tory MP for Blaby in Leicestershire, 1974-92, never receives a mention:

The Lord Lawson of Blaby
Official portrait of Lord Lawson of Blaby crop 2.jpg

Frank Beck abused children at the Beeches children’s home in Blaby where he worked. In 1983 Beck was elected as a Liberal Councillor on the Blaby District Council, a seat which he successfully defended in 1987.

Beck was sentenced to five life-terms for sexual and physical assaults against more than one hundred children in his care between 1973-86. He was sentenced to a further 24 years on seventeen charges of abuse, including rape.

Lord Lawson worked with the security services and I suspect that at least some of his children did/do as well. Lord Lawson: thank you very much for taking Frank Beck out of circulation and for your role in the destabilisation of Thatch, but next time that you go into action, could you please not just blame everything on one perverted old social worker and leave the rest of the entire network untouched? Leicestershire was relieved of one dreadful man, but the many others remained, including in the GMC, BMA and Parliament and they have caused a great deal of trouble.

The crooked barrister George Carman QC, who established his reputation after successfully defending Jeremy Thorpe at the Old Bailey in 1979 was preparing to take up a post in Hong Kong until he stayed in Leicester in Nov 1981 while defending Dr Leonard Arthur, a kindly old paediatrician who had killed a baby with Down’s syndrome and found himself in Leicester Crown Court charged with attempted murder. See previous posts. Something or someone in Leicester persuaded Carman to remain in the UK and to specialise as a libel lawyer. The reason that was always given for no media outlet ever naming Savile as a sex offender although some journos have admitted that they received credible accounts from witnesses whom they believed was that Savile was known to have Carman at the ready and no-one would risk it. Cherie Booth and Miranda both worked in Carman’s Chambers. Cherie was still there in 1988.

Greville was interviewed by the police in 1991 in relation to sexual assaults on children in care in Leicestershire. His solicitor David Napley was so sure that Janner would be charged that he retained George Carman. It was in Feb 1991 that Professor Nigel Eastman of St George’s Hospital Medical School told me to go back to north Wales because Dafydd was my doctor and ‘they know you there’. Eastman had received a letter from his colleague Dr Robin Jacobson telling him that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that he suspected that Tony Francis was as well and that I was suicidal because of being constantly arrested.

Baroness Trumpington 2011.jpg

Nigel Eastman is a pal of St Helena Kennedy, the Wimmin’s Champ. St Helena’s book ‘Eve Was Framed’ contains an acknowledgement to Eastman and thanks him for helping her with so many cases. In 1987, a charidee called WISH (Women In Special Hospitals) was formed with which St Helena was involved. WISH knew that victims of Dafydd’s and other gangs were in special hospitals and they knew that they had been abused and trafficked by those gangs. WISH also knew that Savile was sexually assaulting patients in Broadmoor where he was employed as the General Manager. They said nothing about any of this. See posts eg. ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’ and ‘Close Your Eyes And Make A WISH’.

Baroness Trumpington 2011.jpg

The gang in Leicestershire, like the gangs in north Wales and areas such as Lambeth, was built on organised abuse that had existed in the area for many, many decades. In previous posts I have discussed the gay playwright Joe Orton who met a sticky end; Joe Orton grew up in Leicester on the notorious Saffron Lane housing estate. The ‘Saffs’ were the target of abuse in the 1980s… Sue Townsend of Adrian Mole fame grew up in Leicester and spent her entire life there. Previous posts have explained that Townsend knew about Greville and his pals and I very much suspect that this was the basis of Sue Townsend’s huge success, because her writing wasn’t that good and after the initial Adrian Mole book, it was very clear that Townsend was flogging a very dead horse.

In previous posts I discussed Sir Fredrick Attenborough, the Principal of the University College of Leicester, 1932-51. Sir John Plumb graduated from the University College of Leicester the year after Sir Frederick became Principal. Plumb became an alumnus of Leicester who achieved great success and influence. As did two of Sir Frederick’s sons, who worked in the media, an industry fully on board with Dafydd and the gang as well as with the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts, including ‘Life In Cold Blood’ for the many ways in which Brown’s senior colleagues at Leicester University tried to hamper his career when he was a PhD student there.

My post ‘Radical Leicester And Some Other Free Radicals’ gave an account of some of the others who worked in Leicester University – including Lisa Nandy’s dad Dipak Nandy – as well as in the schools and various Councillors who knew about the ring in Leicestershire.

If anyone has ever asked themselves, as I used to, how Anthony Giddens became such a Famous Sociologist, the Director of the LSE and even managed to persuade Miranda to base his entire political philosophy on Gidden’s pamphlet about The Third Way, they only have to remember that Giddens worked as a lecturer at Leicester University during the Paedophile Years…

Jack Plumb’s doctorate was on the social structure of the House of Commons at the time of William III aka William of Orange.

‘During the 1690s, rumours grew of William’s alleged homosexual inclinations and led to the publication of many satirical pamphlets by his Jacobite detractors. He did have several close male associates, including two Dutch courtiers to whom he granted English titles: Hand Willem Bentinck became Earl of Portland and Arnold Joost van Keppel was created Earl of Albemarle. These relationships with male friends and his apparent lack of mistresses, led William’s enemies to suggest that he might prefer homosexual relationships. William’s modern biographers disagree on the veracity of these allegations. Some believe there may have been truth to the rumours, while others affirm that they were no more than figments of his enemies’ imaginations, and that there was nothing unusual in someone childless like William adopting or evincing paternal affections for a younger man.

Whatever the case, Bentinck’s closeness to William did arouse jealousies at the Royal Court. William’s young protegé, Keppel, aroused more gossip and suspicion, being 20 years William’s junior, strikingly handsome, and having risen from being a Royal page to an Earldom with some ease. Portland wrote to William in 1697 that “the kindness which your Majesty has for a young man, and the way in which you seem to authorise his liberties … make the world say things I am ashamed to hear.” This, he said, was “tarnishing a reputation which has never before been subject to such accusations”. William tersely dismissed these suggestions, however, saying, “It seems to me very extraordinary that it should be impossible to have esteem and regard for a young man without it being criminal.”

Similar speculation surrounded the late Dr Tony Jones, Butch Action Man and associate of Dafydd’s gang, who ‘was like a father’ to many of the male students at UCNW. Tony Jones, a marine geologist unknown outside geology and mountaineering circles, found himself the subject of a ‘This Is Your Life’ episode screened in early 1993, just when Dafydd’s gang were in need of some PR. During the programme it was stressed how many lives Tony had saved in his capacity as a key figure in the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team. See eg. previous posts and comments that follow them. Tony’s quaint way of calling black students niggers or his arrangements with corrupt police officers to have students whom had crossed his path unlawfully arrested and detained in the cells were not mentioned. Tony and his mates did however slap each other on the back a lot and remember the times that they got rat arsed on whiskey and painted Tony’s ears green and tattooed his bum while he was out cold.

 Dr. Tony Jones MBE

It is with great sadness we have to announce the passing of  Dr. Tony Jones MBE one of the founder members of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation. For many years he also served on regional and national bodies and was chair of North Wales Mountain Rescue Association until 2013. He was also a member of the UK Search and Rescue Operators Group, chairman of the Medical Group, secretary of the Inland Consultative Committee and chairman of the Communications Working Group and attended the Maritime and Aviation Consultative Committee, since their inception in 2000.

In 1939 Jack Plumb was elected to a research fellowship at King’s College, Cambridge.

20130215 Kings College Chapel Hi-res 01.jpg

Trinity College and King’s College were the two main Cambridge colleges from which the members of the Cambridge Apostles were drawn. Many Apostles were recruited by the British security services and the 1930s contingent became notorious because of those who were later revealed to have been double agents working for the KGB. It is likely that there were more people in this category than were ever revealed. The Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawn was an Apostle in the 1930s. Hobsbawm had a second home at Croesor in Gwynedd for many years until 1979, where he was part of a group of second homers and visitors known as the Welsh Bloomsbury Set. The Welsh Bloomsbury Set were a group of radicals and intellectuals who had their main homes in London but spent much time in Gwynedd as a result of the friendship with Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, a local landowner who married Amabel Strachey, a member of the Strachey family who were at the heart of the Bloomsbury Group. Bertrand Russell was part of that group of friends.

Some of the Welsh Bloomsbury Set and their network were involved in organised abuse and they made use of the services provided by Dafydd’s gang and before Dafydd led the gang, Gwynne the lobotomist. The Welsh Bloomsbury Set were leftists and many of them were members of the Communist Party. As an adult Eric Hobsbawm’s daughter Julia established her own PR company with Sarah Macaulay which worked for the Labour Party and trade unions.

See eg. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’ for details of the second homers at Croesor and their network.

In 1997 Sarah married Gordon Brown, the Chancellor of the Exchequer and in 2007 Sarah was the wife of the PM. Miranda and Gordon launched an all out attack on the VC of Bangor University from 2004 onward with the purpose of removing him from public life. The reason for this was that Merfyn, his wife and his close friend had spilt the pints of the gang on a number of occasions. Merfyn had grown up near Croesor, knew what the gang were doing to local people and spilt the pints of the Sussex end of the gang in 1967 when he was a student. The VC of Sussex University, Asa Briggs, never got over it and went to war along with Miranda and others many years later. See post ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’. Asa was an historian, a Cambridge graduate who worked in intelligence during WW II and will have known Jack Plumb…

During WW II, Jack Plumb worked in the code breaking department of the Foreign Office at Bletchley Bark. Being one of the Cambridge graduates who worked for the security services, Plumb might actually have done some code breaking, as opposed to the code breaker Trumpers who was a secretary who didn’t do a great deal of work, spending her time larking around with her mates and going up to London to gamble and get pissed with GIs. See post ’95 Glorious Years!’

Baroness Trumpington 2011.jpg

Jack Plumb was highly likely to have been one of those members of the security services recruited from Cambridge pre-WWII who contributed to the combined effort to conceal Dafydd et al’s criminality under the mistaken belief that because Royals were linked to the shenanigans, it was In The Interests Of National Security to stand by and allow horrid old gits to force kids and psych patients to have sex with them and kill them if they blabbed.

Baroness Trumpington 2011.jpg

In 1946 Plumb became a Fellow and Tutor of Christ’s College. It’s much nicer than King’s College, less grandiose and with bushes, but it didn’t contain as many gay spies who concealed elite paedophile rings as King’s College did.

Christ's College First Court, Cambridge, UK - Diliff.jpg

In 1962 Plumb was appointed Reader at Cambridge University and Professor in 1966. Jack Plumb served as Master of Christ’s College, 1978-82.

Plumb had a visiting Chair at Columbia University in 1960. He was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1968 and knighted in 1982.

Plumb was the European Advisory Editor for ‘Horizon’ and the Advisory Editor for history for Penguin Books. Contributors to his books included other well known historians like Jacob Bronowski. Later Plumb worked with Hugh Casson on the BBC TV series Royal Heritage about the Royal Family and the Royal Collections first broadcast in 1977.

Jacob Bronowski was a loyal servant of the security services who concealed the shenanigans upon which Dafydd expanded and built. More recently the baton of protecting a gang of old molesters was passed on to his daughter Professor Lisa Jardine, an historian – they’re the Men or Wimmin Of The Moment – who toadied to all the right people, including  those of Middle Temple, of which Sir Ronnie Waterhouse was a member and of course the Royal Colleges of Top Doctors. Read about Jacob and Lisa in previous posts, including how Lisa achieved success without anyone ever knowing that she was Jacob Bronowski’s daughter, in much the same way that Peters and Lee won ‘Opportunity Knocks’ without the viewers knowing that Peters was blind.

  • See post ‘The Big Questions’ for an account of the career of another Inspirational Blind Man who became Home Secretary on the basis of his Huge Talents, not at all because he spent years running Sheffield City Council while ignoring the activities of Jimmy Savile – whom no-one knew was molesting children anyway – and subsequently the activities of Dafydd et al and other linked gangs.

 

Jack Plumb is seen as mentor to a school of historians and a generation of scholars that included Roy Porter as well Simon Schama, Linda Colley and David Cannadine and others who came to prominence in the 1990s. The decade in which police investigations were launched into a number of paedophile rings which were facilitated by the Top Doctors, including the one in north Wales/Cheshire which as any fule kno didn’t exist.

Plumb was champion of a ‘social history’ in a wide sense; he backed this up with a connoisseur’s knowledge of some fields of the fine arts, such as Flemish painting and porcelain.

Plumb clashed with other historians, notably Cambridge colleague Geoffrey Elton. Geoffrey Elton is the brother of Lewis Elton, Ben Elton’s dad. Lewis Elton spent much of his career as a Professor at Surrey University and worked with those who shafted me and stole my work in 1988-89 after receiving Orders From the BMA. The then President of the BMA was Dr John Marks, who’s brother Prof Vincent Marks was my boss at Surrey. Lewis Elton was largely responsible for the career of Britain’s First Lady Professor of Physics, Daphne Jackson. Dear old Daphne established an organisation to assist professional women advance in their careers and some of Daphne’s mates advanced their careers considerably by plagiarising my work to raise further research funding for themselves while I was made redundant because my funding had run out. See previous posts.

Ben famously hated Mrs Thatch! Which was why his dad shafted the woman, who along with her friends, had evidence of a gang of criminal doctors that if it had ever been allowed to become public could have finished Mrs Thatch off. My media friends who were also shafted for supporting me used to meet Ben at events. They observed that Ben was indeed a Bob Monkhouse in the making as Dame Edna Everage later also quipped. Ben went to Manchester University and the drama/entertainment scene there was supplied with sex workers who had come off the Top Docs conveyor belt.

Ben was born in Fitzrovia, among the Bloomsbury Set and in 1968 the family moved to Guildford. After Ben graduated and moved to London to make his name in alternative comedy, his parents gave him a house to live in so the poor mite didn’t have to worry about rent. See previous posts for info re Ben and his right-on friends.

 

Friends from Jack Plumb’s early life including C.P. Snow portrayed him in novels; he also is known to be the model for a character in an Angus Wilson short story The Wrong Set.

The Guardian’s obituary for Sir John Plumb written by Neil McKendrick told us:

With the death of Sir John Plumb…Cambridge has lost one of its most influential historians and one of its most memorable characters. He was one of a remarkable group of dynamic and charismatic scholars (including Sir Moses Finley, Sir Geoffrey Elton, Sir Harry Hinsley, Owen Chadwick, Sir Denis Brogan, Sir Herbert Butterfield, Dom David Knowles, MM Postan, Philip Grierson, Walter Ullman, Peter Laslett and Denis Mack Smith) who made the Cambridge history faculty such an exciting place to be in the 1960s and 1970s.

When one recalls that Joseph Needham and EH Carr were then at the height of their powers in Cambridge; that exciting young scholars such as John Elliott, Quentin Skinner, Christopher Andrew and Norman Stone had already joined the faculty; and that ambitious youngsters such as Richard Overy, Geoffrey Parker, Roy Porter, Simon Schama, John Brewer and Keith Wrightson were beginning their research careers, it is little wonder that one looks back on it now as a golden age, unequalled since. Few, if any, could claim to have played a more central role than John Plumb. As a hugely influential teacher, the most popular lecturer and the most prolific writer, and as an unforgettably colourful character, Plumb dominated Christ’s and Cambridge history during much of this period.

Jack Plumb…was the product of a working-class family in Leicester…His first attempt to get into Cambridge ended in a humiliating form of rejection. He took the St John’s scholarship examination…Despite coming top of the exhibitioner list, quite exceptionally he was not awarded one, so he went to Leicester University and was the first person ever to take a first in history from that university college. He went up to Christ’s College, Cambridge, in 1933 to begin research as GM Trevelyan’s first and last research student and, apart from a brief interlude as a research fellow at King’s and his time at Bletchley during the war, he never left Christ’s again.

He became a fellow in 1946, and for over half a century devoted his life to the college…Plumb was a dedicated “college man” and anyone who used that phrase in a disparaging way in his presence could expect an Exocet-like rebuke. Not for him the uninterrupted research time that many academic prima donnas now demand. He was in turn an official fellow, college lecturer and director of studies in history, tutor, steward, wine steward, vice-master and master…Greater love for his college has no man than the fellow willing to take on all these burdens… He did not skimp on his university duties either, being, among many other things, a notably brisk and efficient chairman of the history faculty board from 1966-68….

Dafydd’s gang had sent up a Paedophiles In Distress flare by 1991, which resulted in havoc at UCNW when the gang launched an attack on senior sociologist Graham Day and were assisted by ‘The Guardian’ publishing an article accusing Graham of racism. See post ‘Badlands’. One person caught in the crossfire was Nerys Jones, who’s ex-husband was the Harvard sociologist Professor Orlando Patterson. Nerys knew about Dafydd’s gang and suffered at their hands. She later married Merfyn the VC of Bangor University which was the last straw for the gang. Nerys died in 2008 at the hands of Dafydd’s colleagues at the Walton Centre who, despite being Global Leading Top Docs, just couldn’t do anything in the face of her serious illness. Orlando, who did his PhD at the LSE in the 1960s (see previous posts), is a favourite of black elites in the US, who are linked with those we know and love in High Places, such as Barack and Michelle. See eg. post ‘Right To Reply’.
I don’t know why Porter was Plumb’s last postgrad, but it’s probably significant.

But Plumb recognised very early in his career that other historical disciplines were increasingly coming to the fore. He wrote in Studies In Social History (which he edited in 1955) that “social history, in the fullest and deepest sense of the term, is now a field of study of incomparable richness and the one in which the greatest discoveries will be made in this generation”. His prediction has long since been borne out, and he increasingly followed the dictates of his own prophecy…It was a decision which fuelled and exacerbated the strong personal antipathies between the Plumb and the Elton schools of historiography in Cambridge and beyond.

To Elton, who espoused ever more strongly the pre-eminent claims of constitutional history, Plumb’s decisive move towards the history of social realism was anathema. Elton might be said to have won the battle (after all, he did become regius professor), but Plumb has surely won the war. The study of history has marched irresistibly in the direction in which he predicted and led.

...Seven honorary degrees (five in the US) testified to his international reputation as a scholar, but in many ways he still felt frustrated by the prizes which had eluded him…He was on Harold Wilson’s infamous resignation honours list for a peerage, but was dropped in the furore which followed its “leaking” to the press.

That was the Lavender List, written by Marcia Williams aka Lady Falkender, in which Harold planned to give honours to his mates who had helped him conceal wrongdoing, including that involving the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Wilson almost certainly suddenly resigned in 1976 after the security services gave him a push, because they knew that Jeremy Thorpe’s previous relationship with Norman Scott could not be denied any longer, that Norman’s allegations of Thorpe trying to have him killed were credible and that Thorpe was going to find himself charged with very serious offences very soon. See previous posts…

By 1976, Thatch was leader of the Tory Party. The Liberals had Jeremy and Labour had Harold and of course Labour had been getting in and out of bed with the Liberals in terms of the Lib Lab Pact. Could this have resulted in the security services backing Thatch and mobilising the campaign to make her PM as is constantly rumoured? It wasn’t the best idea that you ever had C or M or Dickwit, she was every bit as bad as the Men. But there you are, Thatch banged on about her gently waved hair and her red chiffon dress and she flirted with all of you old farts in a 1950s way and you were as hooked as Alan Clark was when he noticed her ‘very pretty ankles’… Patient F was so shocked when he watched that interview with Clark banging on about Thatcher’s ‘carnal’ tastes and women’s ‘globes’ that F commented at the time that Clark was going to tell us in a minute that Thatch liked the big knobs.

Oz Magazine, Tory Party Issue:

  •  Sadly, some of those mad old gits who were taking orders from Thatch were waving their big knobs in the direction of kids in care supplied by Dafydd et al.

Where he [Jack Plumb]did achieve the full recognition he deserved was from his pupils. They were quick to recognise the influence of his teaching and his generous promotion of their talents. At Christ’s alone he promoted the careers of historians of the calibre of Rupert Hall, John Kenyon, Frank Spooner, Barry Supple, Eric Stokes, John Burrow, Jonathan Steinberg, Quentin Skinner, Norman Stone, Geoffrey Parker, Roy Porter, Simon Schama, Clive Holmes, David Cannadine, Linda Colley, Joachim Whaley, Niall Ferguson and myself. These and many others were launched on their successful careers by Plumb’s patronage and support at Christ’s…

I will try and find out if John Kenyan was any relation of Sir Frederic Kenyon, the Director of the British Museum and the father of Dame Kathleen Kenyon. They were relations of Lord Lloyd Kenyon who spent nearly 40 years as President of UNCW and who’s son Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon, who was infected with HIV, was caught abusing a boy in the care of social services but faced no charges. Dame Kathleen returned to live in the Wrexham area at the end of her career as an archaeologist who achieved fame as a result of her digs in the Middle East. See previous posts. Dame Kathleen, being a World Famous Archaeologist, will have been on the receiving end of much toadying from the Dept of Archaeology at UCNW.

Indeed, many of his pupils would readily admit (as would I) that he was the greatest single influence on their early lives and careers. Many have told me what an inspiration he was in their days in Cambridge, and many count it as one of the great pleasures of their lives to have basked in his company. Not that it was always a comfortable experience. Jack Plumb did not earn the title of being the rudest man in Cambridge without inflicting some hurtful verbal wounds…

He never ceased to surprise. After more than 60 years as a passionate socialist, he suddenly embraced Thatcherism with an ardour that astonished his friends. As he moved ever further to the right, he met the appalled response of his old liberal friends with the smug retort, “There’s no rage like the rage of the convert.”

Such a complex personality inevitably subjected some of his friendships to strain. Not all of them survived…

And when it wasn’t fun, it was always memorable. Jack Plumb made good copy. His turn of phrase made him eminently quotable. His trenchant judgements made good stories – and sometimes unforgiving enemies…

He will, of course, be remembered best by historians for the impact of his work on what is known as “Plumb’s century”, but in London and New York (and in Cambridge and academia at large) he will, perhaps, be remembered even more for his ebullient personality, which expressed itself not only in his erudition but in his enthusiasm and his enjoyment of the good things of life.

For he played as hard as he worked. An entrepreneur, a bon viveur, a connoisseur of food and wine, a collector of fine silver and porcelain, his rooms were far more opulent than those of most dons. Fine paintings adorned the walls, fine claret and champagne flowed with abandon, and his Vincennes and Sèvres were far superior to the collection in the Fitzwilliam Museum. His cellar was the finest in Cambridge. Apart from his splendid rooms in Christ’s, he shared for over 30 years a 16th-century rectory in Suffolk, he had a long-term interest in a magnificent moulin in Provence, and kept a pied-à-terre 22 stories up in the Carlyle in New York. Not for Plumb the life of the cloistered and ascetic scholar, not for Plumb the life of the remote and ineffectual don. He lived his life to the full. He had little time for what he called “the quiet rich”, he abhorred meanness, and he spent his money with as much gusto as he earned it. He approached his 90s full of plans for the millennium, still encouraging and exhorting the gifted young, still planning further trips to the US, still plotting the outcome of his munificent charities.

I’ve never met an academic as rich as this, where did Jack Plumb get it all from, especially as he was born a Saff in Leicester…

Plumb was a formidable fundraiser. He did not scruple to flatter or cajole or bully his friends into stumping up for the charities he believed in. He claimed to have raised more than £3m for Christ’s alone.

How?

About a third came from his own pocket

So he had a spare £1 million knocking around

and his intentions in his will confirmed where his ultimate loyalties lay. His not inconsiderable fortune will go to promote the two things which have dominated his life – Christ’s College, Cambridge, and the study of history.

There must have been something very interesting behind this caricature of a Christ’s Man, a Dr Donald Trefusis worthy of Stephen Fry’s imagination, who’s whole life was dedicated to dear old Cambridge and his archives, but who just happened to find himself in the possession of serious money and art treasures.

Although twice engaged, he remained unmarried.

In an article for ‘History Today’, Sir John Plumb explained how, between 1857 and 1888, after much controversy, the mystery of the Nile’s source was finally solved by the successive discoveries of Speke, Burton, Livingstone and Stanley. I think that Plumb himself might have been the source of one sort of Nile, a Nile of a Westminster Paedophile Ring and How They Got Away With It sort.

 

 As for the Nile’s tributary, Roy Porter became a junior Fellow in 1968 studying under Robert M. Young and lecturing on the British Enlightenment. In 1972, Porter moved to Churchill College and became Dean in 1977. Porter received his doctorate in 1974 and was then given a lecturing job at Cambridge. It was in 1979 that Porter joined the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine at UCL and in 1993 he became Professor of Social History at the Institute. He briefly served as its Director.

Porter retired in September 2001, moving to St Leonards-on-Sea and died of a heart attack five months later at the age of 55 yrs.

Roy Porter was married five times, firstly to Sue Limb (1970), then Jacqueline Rainfray (1983), then Dorothy Watkins (1987), then Hannah Augstein, and finally his wife at the time of his death, Natsu Hattori.

Roy Porter’s wiki entry notes that he was ‘known for the fact that he needed very little sleep’. There are a very small number of people who do need very little sleep, but most of those doing the Superman bit have assistance from substances rather more exciting than Pro Plus tablets. Thatch achieved her wonders with regard to lack of sleep by the use of amphetamines. She acquired her goodies from a street dealer on the street, a Harley Street dealer to be precise and this was widely known among the Top Docs of London.

As with Peter Morrison and Norman St John Stevas attending sex parties with little boys, no-one mentioned Thatcher’s little helpers outside of the Top Docs’ habitat. It was one of those Docs Only secrets that one could cheerily joke about in the right environment and a conversation would follow, but on one occasion that I mentioned it to people who weren’t Top Docs. I received one comment of ‘oh that is crap’, another of ‘you’re fucking mad you are’ and a third from a shocked looking man who said ‘I wouldn’t have thought that she was the sort of person who would do that’. So I explained that Thatch wasn’t nipping over to Holyhead for a fix, she got her supply from a Harley Street Top Doc. Where was I when I told the three about Thatch? On a psych ward in Ysbyty Gwynedd the summer of 1991. The three Empowered Service Users then told everyone that the girl who’d been working in that hospital in London had said that Margaret Thatcher – who had only been kicked out of Number 10 a few months previously – was buying drugs from Harley Street.

DON’T LISTEN TO HER ANYONE, SHE’S MAD.

  • It was at about that time that some of the gwerin became Historians of Medicine, but I’ve always presumed that was because the North Wales Police had begun the investigation into the suspected paedophile ring. Not that the gwerin had anything to fear from that, the North Wales Police were among the bestest friends that Dafydd had and some of them eg. Gordon Anglesea, were members of the ring.
  • Dafydd and Tony Francis were probably worried that I knew which Doc Thatch was buying her powders from. Don’t worry Dafydd I didn’t, but I had so much other info on you all that I didn’t need to know who Thatch’s dealer was.

‘Ooh we doctors hated Thatcher, the NHS wasn’t safe in her hands, we did all that we could to get her out.’ Well not quite everything.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

A lot of Top Doctors from Tommy’s have Harley Street practices, as did Drs Ann and Peter Dally, who numbered Ma’am Darling among their patients.

 

On 12 May 2007, Tony Benn was joined by Gill Hicks at the opening of a new exhibition charting the experiences of patients and staff at Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

Tommy’s merged with Guy’s in 1982. Uncle Harry worked at Guy’s. As a Top Doctor, Uncle Harry would have known how important it was to Take And Keep Good Notes. Top Doctors are judged on the quality of their Notes and if their Notes are insufficient, a Top Doctor may even be summoned in front of the GMC. I have yet to hear of a case in which the GMC has taken action against a Top Doctor for keeping too many Notes.

Roy Porter made many TV and radio appearances. He was an original presenter of BBC Radio 3’s ‘Night Waves’ and, at the point of his death, was scheduled to appear to discuss doctors in literature. I wonder if Porter was planning to mention Dr Savile, as the Top Docs and managers at Broadmoor were told to call Jim, although every one of them knew that Savile was not a doctor of any kind and that the use of the title constituted misrepresentation. The Civil Service mandarins knew that Savile was misrepresenting himself and on documentation as well.

Sad Satan - Nejzvláštnější hororová hra - Paraweb

Savile wasn’t qualified but he was accepted in Top Docs and even political circles on the strength of his excellent Notes.

 

Roy Porter was awarded the Leo Gershoy Award of the American Historical Association in 1988. He was elected a fellow of the British Academy in 1994, and was made an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Any illusions that I held regarding Roy Porter has being used as a source of PR by the unscrupulous Top Docs without knowing what they were up to have now been dispelled.  

A plaque in the memory of Porter was unveiled by the Mayor of Lewisham at 13 Camplin Street, New Cross Gate, London. The Mayor of Lewisham will have known that organised abuse had taken part on his/her patch for years and that the Top Docs were key players in this. Lewisham is on the doorstep of the Maudsley. For a long while, Lewisham has been solid Labour territory and is part of that area of south London over which Harriet Harman and her mates reign. I have blogged previously about how virtually every constituency in that part of south London had/has as an MP a Harriet or Tessa or a Bridget Prentice or a Joan Ruddock… 

 

People were so gobsmacked by the unexpected retirement of Roy Porter and then by his even more unexpected death, that there was no shortage of tributes and obituaries. The Indie told us that Roy Porter reviewed for all the daily papers and the Sundays and that his reviewing began in the 1970s with ‘New Society’. ‘New Society’ was the house journal for social work and throughout the 1970s and 80s there was no mention of the widespread abuse and neglect of clients. The magazine carried adverts for jobs as senior managers with Depts of Social Services where abuse was endemic and concealed by senior managers. John Allen advertised for staff in ‘New Society’. ‘New Society’ published a regular column by Geoffrey Parkinson, a probation officer who worked in Inner London who was not only corrupt but knew that hordes of kids from London were being sent to children’s homes in north Wales and were then trafficked back to London as sex workers. See post ‘        ‘.

The Indie remembered Roy Porter for being a wonderful host, for giving ‘raucous and unbuttoned dinner parties’ and for being an incredibly gregarious man ‘who knew everyone’. Roy Porter knew one Top Doc in north Wales who wasn’t known by many people to be Of Dafydd because he had rather more credibility than his colleagues, but he knew what they were doing and was beavering away planning a military coup and while doing so, was putting patients in as much danger as Dafydd et al did…

The Indie painted a vivid portrait of Roy Porter: One feature of Porter’s career is unique: he was the populist and good liver, the don in jeans and untreated leather boots, famous gold chain nestling on his hairy chest, arriving for parties with a bike-lamp in one hand and a bottle of champagne (always he brought champagne) in the other, published and broadcasting everywhere; yet he was never outside the Establishment, in which he had absolutely no interest…

Leader of the Pack Moving | Bazooka Digital | Search ...

 

Dafydd and Tony Francis’s mate Professor Hugh Freeman wrote the obituary for the Leader Of The Pack for the ‘Psychiatric Bulletin’.

The Leader Of The Pack keeled over with a heart attack in March 2002. In the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report and when, unbeknown to me, Dafydd et al were on manoeuvres yet again to wreck yet another career of mine  – I had begun teaching – and this time to ensure that I was convicted of a serious crime which would see me in prison for a substantial period of time and would never work in another professional job again. See previous posts eg. ‘Thought For The Day’.

The Leader Of The Pack should have realised that no matter how much he helped the Top Docs in return for his class A goodies, they have no loyalty to anyone and they were desperate to wave goodbye to anyone at all still alive and kicking after Waterhouse who might just bite them on the bum one day and name names. Consumption of class A drugs makes people very vulnerable to the dirty deeds of Top Docs even if they are a Leader Of The Pack with a brain and medical knowledge who have written or edited over 100 books.

The Leader Of The Pack was ‘particularly notable for his work in the history of medicine, in pioneering an approach that focuses on patients rather than doctors. Despite Porter’s recognition in the history of medicine, he is quoted as having said “I’m not really a medical historian. I’m a social historian and an 18th century man”. In addition to the history of medicine and other sciences, Porter specialised in the social history of 18th-century Britain and the Enlightenment. He also wrote and lectured on the history of London.’

The Leader Of The Pack published, with G.E. Berrios, A History of Clinical Psychiatry (1985) and co-edited the journal History of Psychiatry (1989). He also edited the journal History of Science for many years. I love the work of the Leader Of The Pack’s that I have read, but I did notice that he didn’t venture into anything too painful with regard to the modern history of psychiatry. The Royal Colleges of Physicians and Psychiatrists won’t be inviting me to join them and they wouldn’t even if I had written as many books as the Leader Of the Pack did.

Germán Elías Berríos is a  Professor of Psychiatry at Cambridge University. Berrios was born in Peru and studied at the University of San Marcos and read at Corpus Christi, Oxford University. Between 1973 and 1976 Berrios lectured in psychiatry at Leeds. Leeds was of course Jimmy Savile’s HQ and Savile had them all well-trained in the NHS. Jimmy hadn’t yet become a doctor of nothing when he gave out the orders in the Leeds NHS, but he worked voluntarily as a porter at St James’s Hospital and at Leeds General Infirmary in between sexually assaulting patients. Jimmy was mates with Alan Franey, the General Manager of Leeds General Infirmary and when Jimmy spent all those years dabbling in being a doctor of nothing as well as being General Manager of Broadmoor while his day job was sexually assaulting patients, Alan Franey was Chief Exec of Broadmoor. See posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’.

Yet another observation re the mass outbreak of Not Knowing which afflicted the NHS in the wake of the revelations that Jimmy Was A Monster. Jimmy spent years farting about as a ‘voluntary porter’ in the NHS. During the 1970s and early 80s, the NHS unions were very militant, much more so than the NUM. I know one Angel who voted for Thatch because of this Angel’s perception that the union which represented the porters wielded more power in her hospital than the RCN did. In Bridgwater Hospital in the 1970s, one of the union reps was a porter who wielded the same sort of influence. Savile himself in his guise as a porter was part of an NHS protest that greeted a Tory Minister in Leeds. Had anyone else spent years pushing trolleys around an NHS hospital free of charge while wearing a porter’s outfit, those unions would have gone apeshit. There would have been angry claims that a Porter’s Job was being taken by the volunteer, that the Porter Wasn’t Insured and the brothers would probably have been out on strike. Not in the case of Jim.

The irony was that Edwina Currie supported Savile’s appointment as General Manager of Broadmoor because the POA was causing havoc and embezzling NHS funds and Savile told Edwina that he’d deal with them. See post ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’. He dealt with all of you Edwina, he was the most serious sex offender in the NHS, at the BBC and in Carlo’s circle, as well as a supporter of the Tory Party and he had the whole lot of you by the knackers. Not one of you had the guts to blow the whistle on Savile and have him charged.

When Dafydd’s Friends In The North caused havoc in 1986-87 which resulted in the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal, one of the those named as most culpable was Dr Jane Wynne who worked in the Leeds General Infirmary and St James’ Hospital Leeds. See post ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’.

Berrios started teaching at Cambridge University in 1977, so he wasn’t at the scene of the crime in 1986-87, but he could hardly have missed Savile during his years at Leeds, particularly as a lot of people in the NHS loathed Savile and Savile used to threaten people in authority by stressing that he had clout among the porters and ooh you wouldn’t want a porter’s strike on your hands would you. Employing more porters if the ones that are there won’t do their jobs because a serial sex offender had told them not to wouldn’t be rocket science, but this is the NHS that we are talking about. Savile didn’t ‘groom the nation’, he threatened the nation and no-one was capable of grabbing him by those elderly, wizened knackers and putting an end to the fuckwittery. ‘Ooh but he was friends with the police.’ Well had those CORRUPT police not been paid a fortune by Thatcher, been armed to the teeth and given permission to beat up hippies and striking miners, they wouldn’t have been quite such a problem. What was Jim going to do, bring the police out on strike? It would have provided a bit of light relief for me, they couldn’t have arrested me three times in one weekend because a load of Angels had perjured themselves.

Berrios is a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, the British Psychological Society and the Academy of Medical Sciences. In 1989, he founded the international journal History of Psychiatry with the Leader Of The Pack of which Berrios remains the Editor.

Dr Savile was appointed to the management task force of Broadmoor in the mid-1980s and then became the General Manager in 1988. I started working at St George’s Hospital Medical School in May 1989. St George’s was facilitating the poshest end of the spectrum with regard to the gangs linked to Dafydd’s. Oliver Brooke, the Professor of Paediatrics at St George’s, was a key member of the pan-European paedophile ring of which the gangs were a part, but Ollie was imprisoned in Dec 1986. It wasn’t too disastrous though, Ollie was out again by the summer of 1987, after Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane cut his sentence on appeal in May 1987. See eg. post ‘Oliver!’. In May 1987, Dafydd et al in collaboration with the Home Office, Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission had their Cunning Plan in place to have me framed and then imprisoned for a serious offence very soon after the General Election of June 1987…

It was about as cunning as Profs Mark Williams and Tom Burns yes, but it wasn’t cunning enough. It fell apart when Sgt Morgan at Bangor Police Station and Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd, didn’t tell enough lies. See previous posts eg. ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’

I note that Berrios and Porter published ‘A History of Clinical Psychiatry’ in 1985. Porter’s obituaries mentioned that his work in the field of the history of psychiatry took off in 1985. I first wrote to the GMC about Gwynne the lobotomist in 1984. It was in the spring of 1985 that I consulted a solicitor and contacted my then constituency MP, Keith Best, the Tory MP for Anglesey, who was also a Minister in the Welsh Office. I didn’t realise at the time that Best was Of The Gang, that Tony Francis had almost certainly got to the Welsh Office and Best before I did after I had confronted Francis and that the solicitor that I consulted at the CAB in Bangor was married to one of the crooked solicitors employed by Gwynedd County Council who were Of The Gang as well.

My post ‘Amber Rudd, The Miners’ Strike And A Memory Jogged’ supplies information about a family who moved from Birmingham to Anglesey in the mid-1980s after adopting a little girl who had been a victim of the West Midlands gang that was linked to Dafydd’s. Dafydd’s gang made their lives a misery after they arrived in north Wales and in 1985, the father of the family died after being very obviously utterly neglected by the Top Docs when he had a life threatening condition. He had lived with the condition for years but the Top Docs decided that they couldn’t be arsed with him.

 

 

Gren Kershaw was a man responsible for much of the toxicity in the NHS in north Wales and in particular for the corruption, patient harm and deaths at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. Gren began his NHS career as a graduate management trainee and held health management posts in Leeds and East Yorkshire.  Gren moved to north Wales in 1983 and held a series of senior management posts, including that of the CEO of the Glan Clwyd District General Hospital NHS Trust and the various other names that this organisation adopted as it sank among scandal. When the scale of the catastrophe could be denied no longer, Gren resigned and set up his own management consultancy. Gren was also appointed as Chief Executive of the Welsh Risk Pool, therefore becoming responsible in Wales for authorising successful claims for negligence as well as the promotion of good risk management practice. Gren was given that position when I finally called lawyers in re my constant battles with the NHS. Then one of Gren’s corrupt managers attempted to register for a PhD with my PhD supervisor and join our team. Gren’s colleague at the Welsh Risk Pool was Patricia Gaskell, who had just months before been the solicitor for Ysbyty Gwynedd responsible for sending a note out to all staff asking for ‘more nurses down to the police station to complain [about me] please.’ Eight Angels subsequently perjured themselves. See previous posts.

Gren! A gift from Jimmy Savile HQ to fulfil every NHS need: cooking the books, killing the patients, harassing complainants, appointing his mates to roles in which they do the same…

 

Berrios’s research has centred on the psychiatric complications of neurological disease and the history, structure and epistemological power of descriptive psychopathology. The power of descriptive psychopathology is a discipline in which Dafydd and his partner-in-crime Prof Robert Bluglass of Birmingham University had much expertise. Dafydd’s excellence in the field resulted in him diagnosing ‘manic depressive insanity’ in 1987 – in me of course, but no doubt others were afflicted as well – and in 1988 Bluglass was able to exceed Dafydd’s own powers of descriptive psychopathology when he told Dafydd that I would ‘end in ward for the criminally insane’.

When I told Patient F this some years later, F was horrified and yelled  ”Insanity?? Insanity?? The bastard, he must have been trying to really upset you’ and I replied that I was too busy laughing to be upset. F responded with ‘well I know that you were, but other people might have believed him and been shattered’. Of course they will have, that is the point of the ludicrous diagnoses, nasty comments and downright lies about people. None of it is a coincidence, it is done to cause people as much distress as possible. They really are Marjorie Dawes, but Dafydd is so ludicrous that it is rather less effective in his case.

I spent the last few years before I fled north Wales telling distraught patients ‘this really is not personal, it is them, they do it routinely, they don’t even believe what they are writing themselves, it is just done to be as destructive as possible and no-one, no-one has had the decency to publicise this and warn patients. So I am.’ Since I began this blog, I have received e mails from people who have become suicidal because of what was written about them and passed to third parties.

Brown told me years ago that this was happening in Birmingham. He told me about a truly terrible clinical psychologist whom he knew who did real damage. One of Brown’s observations was that this woman used to tell people that she had to ensure a plentiful supply of tissues ‘because my patients cry so much’ and Brown used to say to me ‘I bet they do…’ Before I had encountered those we know and love I kept saying to Brown ‘but she’s a really bad clinical psychologist’ to which Brown would reply ‘no, she’s a clinical psychologist’. I have after many years concluded that Brown was right; she’s a clinical psychologist. As with Top Docs, good people do enter the supply line but they are either driven out or bludgeoned into being as bad as that woman in Birmingham who only ever saw patients who wept buckets. Good ones really are thin on the ground.

I heard a lot from patients about a clinical psychologist who was one of Dafydd’s gang based in Bangor called Neil Cheshire. Neil Cheshire seemed to piss a lot of patients off, including women who told me that he was keen to talk about their sex lives and didn’t seem to understand that they really did not want to discuss this. Years later I found out that Neil Cheshire was a standing joke among the clin psy students at Bangor because he talked about penis envy a lot and whenever he talked about penis envy to the students, Cheshire would shout the word ‘penis’, yet speak very quietly the rest of the time, so in lectures the overall impression would be of a man shouting ”PENIS’ at regular intervals. The students just fell about…

Patient F was referred to Neil Cheshire although no-one ever quite managed to explain why. Being male, F didn’t have the ‘talk to me about sex and a PENIS’ experience with Neil Cheshire, but F did tell me that Cheshire was a pompous old git who would not listen to what he was saying so F walked out of the room and later told a Top Doctor ‘I’m not going to waste my time with Mr Cheshire again’. The only response from the Top Doc was ‘he’s called Dr Cheshire’. So F told the Top Doc that from then on he would demand to be called ‘Mr [surname] BA (hons) Fine Art, Farnham’. The Top Doc said to F ‘I didn’t know that you had a degree in Fine Art’ and I thought ‘you’ve known F for five years, he comes in here every four weeks and tells you about the adventures that he had at art college and festivals of yesteryear and what he’s painting at the moment and how big the canvas is and what type of medium he’s using… and you didn’t know that he had an art degree…’

I should have just told F to yell PENIS, they might have remembered that.

They were fucking hopeless and still are. I was told a few days ago of someone who recently told a Top Doc that his cat had been run over, only to find out that it had been recorded on his notes that his father had been run over…

When people in the UCNW Student Health Centre yelled at me that there were no problems with Gwynne the lobotomist, I yelled back that I knew at least three students had attempted suicide within days of encountering him and that was just the cases that I knew of over a period of two years, of course there was a fucking problem. The response was always the same: a shout of ‘they were ILL’. Yes but Gwynne was the final straw, he was not a good idea but then a sex abuse gang wouldn’t be would it.

The security services knew about this, as did the police and I was sent further information after beginning this blog. No patients were warned, none of them. The patients were injuring themselves, they were trying to commit suicide, some of them did commit suicide, they were completely distraught at the thought of what had been documented and passed onto other people, usually breaching all confidentially.

Er MI5??? A serious public health matter is it not? You saw the statistics, you knew that numerous complaints were being made and that most of them pivoted around indecent behaviour on the part of staff, or lies on medical records and Court reports. A PATTERN MI5, A VERY OBVIOUS ONE. A trafficking gang’s methodology.

When the Welsh Gov’t takes up my idea of a memorial in Bethesda, the Tomb Of The Unknown Service User, situated in a place where the over-paid GPs of Bethesda who exterminated so many in the town where Dafydd spent his childhood will not be able to avoid seeing it, I shall ask for a great big phallic symbol to be built on top of it, as a tribute to DR Cheshire and his PENIS.

When UNITE and UNISON next march down through central London on a ‘Save The NHS’ rally because they are very cross about this blog, perhaps marchers placed at regular intervals could carry placards with images of a huge erection on them to remind people in north Wales of the happy times when they received Excellent Care in a dungeon at the hands of dangerous madmen and no-one at all would put a stop to it.

 

Roy Porter’s mate Berrios has published 14 books and more than 400 papers on the clinical, historical and philosophical aspects of neuropsychiatry, descriptive psychopathology – PENIS –  and the hermeneutics of mental symptoms.

If one is going to concern oneself with organic neuropathology as opposed to Dafydd’s idiocies, it all comes down to neurones, or in the case of DR Cheshire, no doubt the PENIS. Neurones vary, but here’s an image of two of them:

    • The long arm of the neurone is the axon and the little branches are called dendrites. Dendrites are great because there can be a lot of them on each neurone. Nerve impulses are transmitted between neurones via the synapses at the end of the dendrites. Millions of dendrites form a complex network. If dendrites were members of and associates of trafficking gangs, they would stretch out from north Wales, some down to south Wales and into the Bristol and the West Country, others up to Leeds, over to Cleveland, down to the West Midlands, into Oxford and Cambridge, down to London, through Harley Street and Tommy’s, over to Guy’s, across to St George’s, around to the Maudsley, forming a very, very intricate and complex network. The dendrites are all over Scotland as well thanks to people like Bluglass and Kilpatrick.

    • When one thinks of criminal gangs run by Top Doctors as dendrites, one can see how ridiculous the mantra of ‘We Didn’t Know’ is. Particularly when students are pissing themselves laughing at a senior clinical psychologist yelling PENIS constantly. Neil Cheshire looked very boring for a man who shouted PENIS, he was rather dull and grey and wore a camel hair coat with formal dress under the coat, always with a collar and tie. His colleagues were in such a sound sleep that Neil Cheshire could probably have gone to work wearing a fur coat and nothing underneath and yelled out PENIS all the way down the corridor and they wouldn’t have batted an eye-lid. They were after all used to Dafydd.

The Top Docs of the London Clinic were most helpful to Augusto Pinochet after he was placed under house arrest when the Spanish Gov’t wanted to charge him with crimes against humanity. Pinochet had come to London for the Top Docs to operate on his bad back just when he knew that people wanted to do him for at least some of the murders that he’d ordered and after having tea with Thatch on the terrace of the Commons, he booked into the London Clinic only to find himself under arrest. The Top Docs were able to rustle up some helpful expert witness reports and carried out by Docs fluent in Spanish as well to ensure that no questions could be asked and after reading the opinions of the Experts, Jack Straw agreed that this poor old man was unfit to be extradited. Pinochet was flown home in comfort and upon hitting the tarmac at Chile, got up out of his wheelchair and raced towards his family to embrace them. The dying old man subsequently enjoyed many more years of life and that back didn’t bother him again either, unlike those social security scroungers who were the butt of so many Tory jokes. ‘Oh it’ll be the bad back again, the ailment that only afflicts the British workman.’ Or the Chilean mass murderer:

Augusto Pinochet

  •  Pinochet’s furniture is rather like that which graced the Windbag’s house in 1979, when Mavis Nicholson interviewed him about his Moral and Social Values. See comments after post ‘R.I.P. Julia Grant and Many More’.

One of the Directors of the London Clinic was John Biffen, who spent a number of years in Thatch’s Cabinet and although Biffen himself was the Tory MP for Oswestry, his grew up on a farm about 8 miles away from Bridgwater and his parents still lived on the farm when John was in the Cabinet. I don’t know when Mr and Mrs Biffen died, they had probably gone by the time that Pinochet was using the London Clinic to avoid being tried for crimes against humanity. Lord Tom King and his wife Lady Jane of One Sausage Roll To Last All Evening knew the Biffens.

Unlike so many of his colleagues, John Biffen was a clever man but he was not a very nice one. He’d spent his youth having his head kicked in by the local kids because he was clever and asthmatic and it didn’t do him much good. Biffen could well have been Brains behind that master plan with Pinochet and the London Clinic.

See previous posts for the gen on Pinochet, the London Clinic, John Biffen and of course the Kings who go sparingly with the sausage rolls…

R.I.P Julia Grant and Many More…

I listened to the Radio 4 obituaries programme ‘Last Word’ yesterday and they paid tribute to Julia Grant, the trans-activist who was the subject of a series of BBC TV documentaries which charted her gender reassignment during the 1980s and 90s. I only watched one of the documentaries, screened in the 1990s. It was one which contained footage of Julia – who began life as George Roberts – during her consultation some years previously with a Top Doc at Charing Cross, a psychiatrist who was a gender identity specialist. Julia was obliged to see this man before the gender reassignment surgery that she wanted could go ahead. The Top Doc concerned refused to allow his face to be shown on camera or to be identified.

The Top Doc treated Julia dreadfully, absolutely dreadfully. So much so that the crap faced by transgender people gained a great deal of publicity. At one point he snapped at Julia ‘you have stepped out of line and I don’t like people who step out of line’. He subsequently turned down her request for gender realignment surgery. During the consultation Julia was reduced to jelly. She was not highly educated and had no education at all in medicine so was not able to identify the many ways in which the Top Doc breached all good practice and thus she did not say ‘what the fuck do you think that you are doing?’

This was the Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic, supposedly the global leader in that field. We take referrals from across the world! Yes and as far as NHS UK patients went, it was that shitbag whom they had to encounter if they wanted gender reassignment surgery. No other option. You have this bastard or you don’t even get considered for treatment.

The nation however missed something. This Doc was not alone in being a psychiatrist who conducted himself in that manner. Many of them did, including Dr Tony Roberts at the Hergest Unit, until Roberts finally retired not so long ago. Exactly the same bedside manner: rude, insulting, with bizarre notions of what constitutes ‘gender appropriate’ behaviour, deliberately intimidating. The geographical area covered by Tony Roberts had the second highest suicide rate among women in England and Wales, except for Camden. When I complained to the GMC about Roberts in 2002, the GMC did not investigate my complaint. They maintained that Tony Roberts had not done anything inappropriate. Although he had ordered my key worker off of my case – my key worker whom I liked – appointed himself my doctor against my wishes, refused to treat me and then ordered every other Top Doc not to treat me on the grounds that I was ‘his patient’. One night a I rang the GP on-call, who recorded on my file ‘suicidal ++++’ and contacted Roberts. Roberts faxed two words back – ‘DO NOTHING’.

I was not alone in having these experiences with Roberts. As another patient observed, he was ‘another dangerous madman’. Tony Roberts graduated from Manchester University in 1984. He trained with the abusive nutters there who included Dafydd’s old boss Dr Bob Hobson, who ran a sex abuse ring at the Maudsley and then in 1974 relocated to Manchester where he expanded on the ring there (see post ‘The Mentor’). Ian Brockington, Tony Francis’s former boss, also worked at Manchester University, until he joined Dafydd and Francis’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass at the University of Birmingham (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’). After learning at their knees, Roberts headed for a job at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh where he joined Dafydd and then Roberts was appointed Clinical Director of the Hergest Unit…

Years later, my lawyers discovered a document in the possession of the GMC purporting to be my letter of complaint about Tony Roberts. It was a forgery. See post ‘The General Medical Council And Yet Another Forged Document’.

Although the Top Doc who treated Julia Grant so appallingly refused to allow himself to be identified at the time of the TV programme, he was later revealed to be John Randell. John Randell was one fun guy, but no-one dared mention anything at the time other than his sadism towards Julia Grant. By the time that Randell’s earlier interview with Julia was broadcast on the programme that I watched, Randell had been dead since 1982. Although the old bastard had been 6 ft under for years, no-one dared say anything ruder about him in public other than that he was old fashioned, showed bigotry towards transgender people and had some rather odd views about women.

John Randell was born in Penarth, Cardiff in 1918. He qualified as a Top Doctor at the Welsh National School of Medicine in 1941. From 1942-46 he was a Surgeon Lieutenant in the RNVR. Randall knew Gwynne the lobotomist , Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain who facilitated the paedophile/trafficking ring at St George’s Hospital Medical School which was linked to Dafydd’s gang and Randell also knew about the Naughtiness In High Places re Lord Louis Mountbatten and the gay spies in the Admiralty, as discussed in my post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.

After serving in the RNVR, Randell worked at Guy’s, St George’s and Tommy’s Hospitals. All of which were already facilitating the organised abuse upon which Dafydd et al expanded into a pan-European ring in the 1970s. In 1950 Randell was appointed Physician for Psychological Medicine at Charing Cross. There he worked with Lennox Broster who had been treating intersex people since the 1930s, but not transsexuals as such.

Lennox Ross Broster (1889 – 12 April 1965) was a South African-born surgeon who spent most of his career at Charing Cross. Broster was educated in Grahamstown, first at St Andrew’s College, then at Rhodes University College. Broster received a Rhodes Scholarship and began studying medicine at Trinity College, Oxford. He continued his medical training at Guy’s Hospital, qualifying as a Top Doc from there. Broster served with the RAMC during WW I. After WW I, Broster specialised in the treatment of endocrine disease. In the 1930s and 1940s Broster was among the first surgeons to operate routinely on intersex patients, in work that received frequent coverage in the British press and helped to establish Charing Cross Hospital as a centre for intersex and transgender medicine. His patients during this period included the Olympic athlete Mark Weston.

Broster held junior surgical positions at a number of hospitals, including at the Radcliffe Infirmary and at Guy’s Hospital. He also worked at the Queen’s Hospital for Children. During this period Broster became associated with Charing Cross, where he would remain for the rest of his career. A history of Charing Cross published in 1967 stated that Broster had been “one of the outstanding surgeons” there. Although employed as a general surgeon, Broster took a special interest in endocrinology. Simultaneously with his work at Charing Cross, Broster also served as a consultant to several other hospitals – the Bute Hospital in Luton, Chesham Cottage Hospital, Dunstable Hospital, Beckenham Hospital – and to the Church Army.  

In the 1930s and 1940s Broster provided surgical and hormonal treatment to intersex patients, in collaboration with the psychiatrist Clifford Allen. This attracted considerable press attention to Broster and Charing Cross during the 1930s. A 1938 story in the News of the Screws described Broster as “the famous surgeon, who has brought new hope and happiness into the baffled lives of many men and women who were desirous of changing their sex”. Although journalists often described the treatment as sex changing, the patients they wrote about would more accurately be described as intersex and there is no evidence that Broster operated on transsexuals.

Broster gave lecture tours of the United States and Canada in 1936 and 1937. Broster gave lectures to the American Surgical Association in 1941 and he became an honorary fellow of the Association in 1942. In 1948 the South African Medical Association invited Broster to lecture in South Africa and in 1950 he was a visiting Professor at Cairo University. Broster was Chairman of the Court of examiners of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and also acted as an examiner for the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Leeds.

Broster represented the South African branches of the BMA on the BMA’s Council, 1938-45/46, when the independent Medical Association of South Africa was established. Broster was also involved with the BMA’s Section of Surgery, serving as an honorary Secretary in 1929 and a Vice-President in 1950.

In 1950 Broster became Chairman of the Commonwealth Medical Advisory Bureau’s Committee of Management. In 1952 he became Chair of a Committee, set up jointly by the Royal Society of Medicine’s Section of Endocrinology and the Society for Endocrinology, which had the task of considering how British research in endocrinology could be encouraged. He was elected an honorary fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine in 1958.

Broster was a strong supporter of the Commonwealth of Nations. 

Broster was an enthusiastic Rugby player as a student and a Top Doctor  and served as President of the United Hospitals Rugby Football Club. Like all the best Top Doctors, Broster played golf and retained an interest in sports contests between Oxford and other universities.

Broster suffered a stroke after retiring, when about to sit down at Lord’s Cricket Ground to watch a match. He made a partial recovery but later died on 12 April 1965.

Working as a high profile general surgeon in Oxford at the time that he did will have meant that Broster knew and almost certainly taught Sir Charles Evans, the surgeon who served as Principal of UNCW, 1958 -84. Sir Charles trained at Oxford and spent his very early career in surgery there. See previous posts.

Lennox Broster and his wife Edith had three daughters. Their eldest daughter Cynthia also became a physician and finished her career as Principal Medical Officer for the Oxfordshire Area Health Authority. So Cynthia knew about the organised abuse of kids in care in Oxfordshire with which social work manager Barbara Kahan and her child psych husband Dr Vladimir Kahan colluded. Babs was appointed a children’s social work adviser to Keith Joseph when he was Heath’s Secretary of State at the DHSS and Babs remained advising Gov’ts for years. See post eg. ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’. Oxford University’s Dept of Psychiatry has also been complicit with the abuse of kids and vulnerable adults, as well as being party to cancer research fraud funded by the Cancer Research Campaign. See previous posts…

Cynthia married the neurologist Charles Phillips in 1942. When Charles was called up for military service in the same year, Lennox provided a recommendation that led to Charles’s appointment to the RAMC.

Charles Phillips died in September 1994 and as ever the Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online provided an obituary:

Charles Garrett Phillips b.13 October 1916 d.9 September 1994
BA Oxon(1938) BSc(1939) BM BCh(1942) MRCP(1944) DM(1951) FRCP(1962) FRS(1963) Hon DSc Monash (1971)

As a neurologist who studied at Oxford and then soon after returned to work there, Phillips too will have known Sir Charles Evans. Phillips was only two years older than Evans…

Charles Garrett Phillips had a major impact on experimental and clinical neurology, recording from pyramidal neurons in the cortex and contributing to our understanding of central motor control. In his monographs and in many of his papers Phillips successfully demonstrated the relevance of animal data, intelligently adduced, for the management of motor disorders in man.

This sounds rather as though Charles worked in the area of primates in cages with things stuck into their heads.

Beauty is pain: Cosmetic animal testing and cruelty-free ...

Phillips’ formidable analytical intelligence was evident at an early stage, and perhaps best demonstrated in his Ferrier lecture and in two monographs. In his 1968 Royal Society Ferrier lecture Phillips explained how the brain was involved in the servo control of the muscles of the hand in primates.

I thought as much.

Secondly, with his main collaborator in the 1960s, Bob Porter, Phillips wrote a book entitled ‘Cortico spinal neurones: their role in movement ‘(London, Academic Press). Published in 1977, the monograph is a seamless synthesis of electrophysiological and micro anatomical studies in which Phillips and Porter refer frequently to the work of their contemporaries as well as historical pioneers. Phillips’ second monograph on ‘Movements of the hand’ (Liverpool University Press, 1985), based on his 1982 Sherrington lecture, was the acme of his scientific thought and writings. He described in detail the inputs and outputs of the cortical modules which resemble the “integrated circuits in electronics terminology”. He particularly emphasized the importance of inputs from the muscle afferents which he had already highlighted in his Ferrier lecture, and moved easily from the micro to the macro by explaining the circuitry for programmed motor patterns in the central nervous system.

Charles Garret Phillips was the son of George Ramsey Phillips, anaesthetist to St Mary’s Hospital, and Flora Phillips. He was educated at Bradfield College, Magdalen College, Oxford, and at St Bartholomew’s Hospital.

The Bart’s which by the 1970s was facilitating organised abuse which could be traced back at least to the presence of Dafydd’s pal Lady Juliet Bingley working as a medical almoner at Bart’s after she qualified at the LSE in the early 1950s. Lady Juliet’s dad Reginald Vick spent most of his career as a surgeon at Bart’s. See previous posts.

At Oxford he took a first in animal physiology. After medical qualification he spent three years in the RAMC as a neurologist during which time he took the MRCP. After the war Phillips returned to Oxford, where he became a fellow of Trinity College in 1946, a university lecturer, reader and subsequently appointed to a personal chair in neurophysiology in 1966. He was a secretary of the Physiological Society between 1960 and 1966. In 1975 he was elected to Dr Lee’s chair of anatomy at Oxford and retired in 1983.

In spite of the high status he had achieved Charles remained remarkably modest. It was this modesty and a degree of uncertainty, together with the wish not to be constrained by commitments to outside funding bodies, which prevented him from applying for a research grant.

That is the best excuse that I have ever heard for not bothering to apply for research funding.

However, it must also be admitted that the generous ‘class grant’ which the University bestowed on the physiology laboratory made an application for outside funds unnecessary.

That explains Charles suddenly being overcome by modesty.

The realization that the University’s generosity was not uniformly distributed in South Parks Road proved to be one of three culture shocks which stunned Phillips when he took up the chair of anatomy. In contrast to the situation in the physiology laboratory, Phillips found that virtually all research depended upon outside grant funding.

Charles was astounded that the manna from heaven did not continue.

The two other shocks in store for Charles were, first, the conflict between staff which was generated by the five years of uncertainty which followed Geoffrey Harris’ untimely death in 1971,

This sounds interesting, I will dig a bit deeper when I have time.

Geoffrey Wingfield Harris was educated first at Dulwich College (1927-1931) and then at Emmanuel College, Cambridge (1932-1939). He began clinical training at St. Mary’s Hospital, London (1936-1940), worked briefly at Hillingdon County Hospital (1939) and then worked at Cambridge as the Demonstrator in Anatomy (1940-1947), Lecturer in Anatomy (1947-1948) and also Lecturer in Physiology (1947-1952). From 1952-1962 Harris was Senior Lecturer in Physiology, University of London and worked in the Laboratory of Experimental Neuroendocrinology at the Maudsley. Dafydd ‘trained’ at the Maudsley in the early 1960s at the knee of Bob Hobson the trafficker and the wider collection of dishonest incompetents whom were abusing their patients in numerous ways. See posts ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’  In 1953 Harris was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1962 he moved to Hertford College, Oxford, becoming Dr. Lee’s Professor of Anatomy, a post he held until his death in 1971.

Beauty is pain: Cosmetic animal testing and cruelty-free ...

and, secondly, the fact that the teaching of topographical anatomy had not changed since Phillips was a student. Charles Phillips’ appointment allayed the uncertainty of the interregnum that followed the death of Harris and this, together with his gentle but firm democratic leadership, soon restored civilized relations between the staff.

Translate as ‘Phillips imposed a regime and ruled over dissenters with a rod of iron’.

But he was not so successful in revising the teaching of topographical anatomy. Charles placed greater emphasis on ‘functional’ anatomy, including the introduction of transcutaneous stimulation of muscles. But, it was clear to all that Phillips’ appointment was an interim measure. He will not be remembered as an anatomist, nor would this have been his wish.

This rather sounds as though Phillips wasn’t much good at anatomy and that someone would remind the world of this if ever anyone did remember him as an anatomist.

During his years in human anatomy Phillips also served as editor of ‘Brain’ and on the Medical Research Council, tasks which he took very seriously.

Even though his anatomy wasn’t up to much.

As editor he was proud of the fact that he did not reject papers: rather he urged respect for the work of others even though this sometimes involved major revision of the text or additional experiments to bring the manuscript up to scratch.

Everything accepted, even crap. The journal must have been very short of contributions because journal editors love rejecting papers and stressing that not any old shite gets in this journal.

Charles Phillips was a quick witted and articulate speaker and a gifted conversationalist. To dine with him at a dinner of the Physiological Society was always an immensely rich and pleasurable experience. Indeed Charles endeavoured to make each encounter with colleagues and friends an intellectual occasion using his gentle but penetrating wit and judiciously crafted turn of phrase to set the ambience.

Charles would have put Libby Purves in the shade. Please someone, take Arthur Mullard along to a Physiological Society dinner, secrete a camera about one’s person and film the occasion.

Research for Phillips came to an abrupt end when he transferred to human anatomy and retirement, when it came in 1983, was complete.

His services were dispensed with at the earliest opportunity.

This contrasted quite markedly with the lifestyle of some of his close colleagues who were equally or more active in research after retirement. But it was characteristic of Charles to follow life in a precise and orderly sequence. He also confided that experimentation through the night, which recording from cortical neurons demanded, had become too great a strain. However, it seemed to the observer that Charles was in fact quite content in that he had by the age of 58 completed the task he had set out to accomplish.

58 yrs old is very early for a scientist to pack up work. They usually cling on for decades after retirement at 60 or 65, pursuing the research that they enjoy without being bothered by the onerous admin duties imposed on them before retirement.

It is a tragic irony that the end for a man of his powerful and acute intellect was accompanied by severe mental deterioration.

I wonder what happened…

He married Cynthia, herself a physician, in 1942 and they had two daughters.

 

The psychiatrist who worked with Broster at Charing Cross and established that institution as the world leader in gender identity work, Clifford Allen, made a sharp distinction between intersexuality and transvestism (the term then in use for what is now described as being transgender) which Allen saw as a psychological pathology not requiring surgical intervention. In 1954 Allen wrote: ‘the abnormal minds should be treated in order to conform them with the normal body and not vice versa’.

I can’t find much about Clifford Allen online, although David Andrew Griffith’s article in ‘Sexualities’, Jan 2018, ‘Diagnosing sex: Intersex surgery and ‘sex change’ in Britain 1930–1955’ does discuss Clifford Allen:

Clifford Allen… the consultant psychiatrist at Charing Cross, the Physician in Charge of the Psychiatric Department of the Seamen’s Hospital, Greenwich, and the Assistant Physician to the Institute of Medical Psychology at the Tavistock Clinic in Bloomsbury.

Previous posts have discussed the Tavi during those years and some of the Top Docs there who were facilitating abuse, including those with links to north Wales.

Broster and Allen shared the view that atypical biology could lead to atypical psychology; if adrenal glands were thought to masculinize the biological, then they would be expected to influence sex roles, aims and object choice as well.  For both Broster and Allen, biological normality was structured into a binary of male and female bodies, and linked to a strict psychological normality, as measured by heterosexuality….

Broster largely saw adults, particularly at the start of his research, although he saw an increasing number of younger and pre-pubescent cases just prior to the interruption of his work caused by the Second World War… 

In 1940, Clifford Allen argued that treatments should be strictly divided between psychotherapeutic treatment for individuals who do not have an identifiable atypical anatomy and surgical intervention for individuals who do (Allen, 1940). Broster had the authority to decide or deny physical treatments, or to refer to Allen, who had the authority to decide or deny psychological treatments. In Allen’s chapter of The Adrenal Cortex and Intersexuality, he described a case study of a woman who ‘wants to be a man’ so that she could marry her girlfriend. No physical abnormality was found, so Allen offered psychotherapy to address her (in his view) homosexuality, which she refused (Broster et al., 1938: 106–107). Despite the agency that Broster narrated in his case studies, medicine seems to have remained the authority and conveyer of legitimacy for individuals who did not conform to biological or psychological norms of sex.

Broster’s 1944 book, Endocrine Man, sharpens the distinction between individuals with what the medical profession defined as physical or psychological abnormalities. He was very clear that in both cases, treatment of some kind should be pursued, to obtain as close a state to ‘normal’ as possible:

When their troubles are due to natural causes their plight is pitiable. Society in general is not a respecter of persons, is suspicious, and indeed often hostile to these abnormals. This attitude should be rightly reserved for the decadent imitators and propagandists of these perverted states, who form a festering sore in our midst. (Broster, 1944: 95)

Broster and Allen were Top Docs who were knowingly working with colleagues who were facilitating abuse. As was John Randell.

Clifford Allen certainly came up with an interesting invention outside of the field of gender identity. During the 1960s, the presence of Caribbean Angels in British hospitals was so visible that it inspired Allen to diagnose a medical condition, Heterochromophilia: ‘the compulsion in human beings to choose a mate of a different colour’. Allen published a letter in the British Journal of Psychiatry in 1968 which claimed that Heterochromophilia stemmed from a newborn’s identification with the first face it laid eyes on when it emerged from the birth canal. ‘It seems to be that the condition is rare and not of great importance,’ Allen wrote.  ‘But since we are getting more coloured women nursing white babies these days there is a likelihood of this becoming much more common’.

Those white babies will clap eyes on a big black face and a lifelong taste for mating with negroes will be established.

It would however be preferable to seeing this as soon as one is born, or indeed at any point during one’s life:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

I was exposed to dangerous levels of Enid Blyton as a child and I had a copy of the later notorious Three Golliwogs book which contained the line about a big black face at the window. When I was a student, I had a friend who hadn’t been exposed to Enid Blyton and I told him that the three gollies were called Golly, Nigger and Wog. He suggested that Blyton should have written in a fourth golly, Bleck Bestard. Thatch and Denis had investments in South African businesses at the time of this conversation, but their only reason for refusing to impose sanctions on South Africa was the suffering that sanctions would inflict on the people living in the townships. In South Africa as well as in Gwynedd.

His brother John Ennals was Chairman of the Anti-Apartheid Movement, 1968-76. Lord Ennals’ other brother Martin was the DG of Amnesty International. Jeremy Thorpe was an Anti-Apartheid Campaigner. They all colluded with Dafydd’s gang, as did many more more at the forefront of the Anti-Apartheid Movement. If any of them had gone public on the crimes of Thatcher’s friends Peter Morrison and Jimmy Savile, Thatcher’s Gov’t – one of the few props which the South African Gov’t had during the 1980s –  would have been brought down. But none of them did. They and their network instead worked very hard at contributing to the effort to ensure that I and others were never heard re Dafydd. See previous posts for further info about those who were so distressed at what was happening in South Africa that they assisted the gang who supplied kids to Thatch’s friends for sex.

 

At the end of the 1950s John Randell wrote a paper on 50 transvestites and transsexuals that he had worked with. In his 1960 MD thesis ‘Cross Dressing and the Desire To Change Sex’ (University of Wales), Randell discussed 61 male to female and 16 female to male cases. This was one of the first higher degree theses on transsexuality. The Expert was born.

Part of Nye’s Great Achievement.

During the 1960s Randell was seeing 50 cases a year, which rose to nearly 200 in the 1970s. And every one of them will have been treated like dirt.

They did For The Poor! It’s what they dreamed of!

By Randell’s own figures, he saw 2438 patients (1768 male to female, 670 female to male). He also spent half his time with general psychiatric patients. Told you so. This man was let loose on people whom he was able to detain for years in psychiatric hospitals or recommend for transfer to a high security institution, forcibly inject with drugs which could result in lifelong debilitating ‘side effects’ or of course kill the patient, forcibly impose ECT on the patient or lobotomise them against their wishes. Or he could simply refuse to treat desperately ill patients who were unable to look after themselves. In the event of ordering such ‘treatment’, or indeed witholding lifesaving treatment, Randell’s manners, attitude or rapport with his patients will not have been any better than they were with Julia Grant.

In 1969, Randell’s name was mentioned several times in press reports about the First International Symposium on Gender Identity and he testified at the Corbett vs Corbett trial that he ‘considered that the respondent (ie April Ashley) is properly classified as a male homosexual transsexualist’, which contributed to the legal problems of transsexuals and intersex persons in the UK for the next 35 years.

April Ashley is an English model and restaurant hostess. She was outed as a transgender woman by ‘The Sunday People’ in 1961 and is one of the earliest British people known to have had gender reassignment surgery. April Ashley was constantly told how vile she was by people who then asked her to have sex with them.

Corbett vs Corbett was the case concerned with April Ashley’s divorce. Randell appeared for Arthur Corbett who was petitioning for his marriage to April Ashley to be annulled on the grounds that she was a man. Eeh, he’s a raving male homosexual transsexualist. It’s been diagnosed.

  • Here’s one of Randell’s volumes.

 

Readers might recognise the name of the person who wrote the foreword to the book, Prof Desmond Curran. Dessie has featured in previous posts (eg.’Meet The Gwerin!’). Dessie was the daddy of the paedophiles/people traffickers of St George’s, Dessie having founded their esteemed Dept of Psychiatry, to which abusers flocked once Dessie set up shop. It was Dessie who ‘treated’ Norman Scott many years before Norman became headline news after Norman had a breakdown as a result of the harassment and intimidation from Mr Thrope and his friends. Norman ended up in the hands of Dessie because Dessie was an Expert on Sexual Perversion, rather than an Expert on criminals in public life who have shagged both Ma’am Darling and Lord Snowdon, who subsequently marry Miriam, the ex-wife of Lilibet’s cousin and try to have their former non-Royal partners murdered. The diagnosis was that Norman was a worm, a liar, a vagabond, a loathsome spotted reptile and a man, or woman, who chews pillows for kicks and that Mr Thrope was one of the most intelligent, prettiest politicians who could have, had he wanted, become Prime Minister Of This Country Or President Of The World…

Peter Cook's biased judge sketch and its background - YouTube

Mr Justice Cocklecarrot: ‘And now you must retire, as must I’. Which indeed he did.

Harold Wilson’s good friend the crooked solicitor Lord Arnold Goodman was the first to come to Mr Thrope’s aid:

Lord Goodman was a big mate of Nye’s widow Jennie Lee and Harold Wilson gave them the flagship project of the Open University to play with. By the time that Mr Thrope appeared at Minehead Magistrates Court for the committal hearing in Nov 1978, Sir David Napley was representing him. Napley turned up at Minehead in his Roller, just to show the magistrates who was boss.

George Carman QC the bent barrister, who had known about Dafydd and the gang and the Westminster Paedophile Ring for years, made his reputation by defending Mr Thrope at his subsequent Old Bailey trial in 1979.

Killer Carman hosted two junior barristers in his Chambers who became famous:
  • The Secret Diary of Cherie Booth, QC (aged 53 and a half ...

Norman, the only man at Mr Thrope’s Old Bailey trial who told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth:

Now that Norman has been declared to be a Gay Icon at a film stars ceremony, I’m thinking of campaigning for him to become Head Of State. I don’t know if Norman would want to do this, he might prefer to remain in Devon with his horses, but Norman would undoubtedly do a far better job of Leading The Country than the gang of lying criminals who tried to kill him.

 

I note that on the cover of Randell’s book Dessie is described as the Chancellor’s Medical Visitor. The Chancellor in this context is the Lord Chancellor, rather than the Chancellor of, for example, UCNW, which for the many years that Dafydd’g gang operated in UCNW was Carlo. The Medical Visitor is an expert accepted by the judiciary as being eminent in his field. So the Lord Chancellor accepted Dessie, the foundation stone of a sex abuse ring, as a Medical Visitor. That doesn’t surprise me after the research that I’ve done over the past two years. That edition of Randell’s book was published in 1976 – the book was originally published in 1973 –  by which time business for Dafydd’s gang was booming and as previous posts have made clear, the crimes of the gang and related gangs such as the one that Dessie founded in south London, were being concealed at the highest levels of Gov’t. I’m not sure when Dessie attained the status of the Lord Chancellor’s Medical Visitor, it could have been an honour conferred upon him years previously, but the Lord Chancellor 1974-79 was Lord Elwyn-Jones.

The Lord Elwyn-Jones

My post ‘Lest We Forget’ discussed how for many years, Elwyn Jones, a crooked Welsh layer, was one of the principal links between London and Wales in Dafydd’s ring.

1976 was the momentous year in which panic gripped the paedophiles and their friends. In Jan 1976, Norman was prosecuted for a minor social security fraud which was linked to Mr Thrope’s harassment and intimidation of him and the story was finally reported in the press. In March 1976, Andrew Newton, who alleged that he had been hired to kill Norman, appeared at Exeter Crown Court, was convicted of firearms offences and subsequently imprisoned. Norman appeared as a prosecution witness and explained what had been going on. It was becoming clear that Mr Thrope could well find himself charged with a serious criminal offence, which indeed he subsequently was.

The gwerin at UCNW began tearing each other’s throats out in 1976 (see previous posts) and a new Chancellor of the University of Wales – who’s constituent colleges included UCNW – was appointed, Carlo. Dai Francis, a Communist ex-miner who had led the south Wales branch of the NUM during the miner’s strike which brought down Heath’s Gov’t also stood for election as Chancellor, but no-one was going to risk appointing Dai at a time like that. Dai was the father of Dr Hywel Francis, the Labour MP for Aberavon, 2001-15. Hywel Francis was succeeded in the seat by Windbag Jr. See previous posts…

Harold Wilson suddenly resigned as PM on 5 April 1976 and there has been speculation ever since that he knew that he had Alzheimers or ooh he was a KGB spy and was about to be outed… No, the reason was that Harold knew that things re the Westminster Paedophile Ring could unravel quite rapidly and he either jumped or was pushed by the security services. He was only pushed so far, Wilson remained in Parliament for many more years…

  • He’s popped in for a curry on the way home and is ringing the wife with his lame excuses as to his delay.

  • Pussy Galore’s fed up that he hasn’t Told His Wife About Them yet.
  • Pussy Galore by Honor Blackman.jpg

So in true Paedophiles In Distress style, in 1976, an Expert who was Of The Gang published a book which advertised the credentials of the Expert who knew all about the loathsome spotted reptile who also happened to be a prosecution witness and could well be again in the near future but in a rather bigger case…

Norman, I am touched that the tactics employed to deal with you were very similar to those employed to deal with me! Hilarious, I begin a career in cancer research and suddenly Tony Francis’s mate begins a career in cancer research, funded by the Cancer Research Campaign, just like I was and he even worked with people linked to the team of which I was a member. Only Peter Mcguire et al participated in a massive research fraud which ended in the suicide of one of their colleagues… Brown and I show an interest in publishing about the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and suddenly ooh look everyone, Dafydd’s friends have published on the history of Denbigh, ooh you can’t believe Brown and Baker, YUK, READ US, READ US, DON’T LISTEN TO THEM ANYONE, SHE’S MAD… Brown starts up a journal about Arts In Health and suddenly the Top Doctors are all Experts in Arts and Health.

Oh they are a fucking joke aren’t they Norman. Brown shares his salary out with his friends who have been shafted by those bastards and makes do with three pairs of trousers and a few T shirty things and the troughing bastards continue to demand more and more and more, while stealing Brown’s ideas because they just cannot do it themselves.

After the Corbett vs Corbett trial in 1969, which did transgender people no good at all, Randell was the Expert sought out by the media and appeared on the occasional radio programs. In 1980 the ‘News of the Screws’ claimed that Randell and his surgeon, Peter Phillip, had made London the ‘sex-change capital of the world’. It will have been for people who were prepared to stuff Randell and Phillip’s mouths with gold, there’s always room for more gold in a Top Doc’s mouth even after many years of Nye’s largesse. Randell had not actually been in favour of surgery until his patients who had had surgery abroad returned with positive evaluations. Randell spotted the gold mine and knew that if he didn’t start offering surgery as well, Top Docs overseas would be mining the rich seam that was waiting to be exploited… Even in the 1960s less than 10% of Randell’s patients managed to achieve surgery and only a third of the male to females had vaginoplasty. In the 1970s when numbers increased, still only 15% of patients achieved surgery.

The irony is that during the recorded consultation with Julia, in her desperation to get help, Julia asked Randell if the process could be accelerated if she became a private patient. The old bastard snapped ‘no, my opinion cannot be bought’. Oh yes it can and it was, but not by Julia.

When I was unlawfully refused all NHS care by the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust, I wrote to the then Welsh Gov’t Health Minister Edwina Hart and asked to be therefore provided with access to alternative care. Edwina wrote back and said that she would not access any type of private care for me and she had done as much as she could. Well, she had confronted the CEO and Chairman of the Trust, but they ignored her, refused to investigate my complaint or provide the NHS care to which I was legally entitled, so Edwina backed off. I had given her enough evidence to have both of them arrested. The Welsh Gov’t is now commissioning the private sector to treat thousands of patients because the NHS just has not done it. The Top Docs in Wales are also now deliberately keeping their waiting lists so long that desperate patients in severe pain are being forced to pay for private treatment. This is what happens when Gov’ts pander to criminals…

Drop a bomb on them someone.

With regard to transgender patients, I’m not at all sure that the sort of surgery that people were begging Randell for is a good idea, but there isn’t the scope in this post to expand on precisely why. Can I just note that one of my main reservations is that I have known for years that distressed vulnerable patients end up in the hands of Randell and people like him, who cannot be trusted further than one can spit a rat and who simply are not the people to advise on complex gender identity problems? I do understand that people feeling uncomfortable with their gender can feel absolutely desperate, but this lot are really not going to help, even these days. Hamfisted liars and conmen who really are best avoided…

In 1990 Dafydd tried to persuade a 19 yr old patient at Ysbyty Gwynedd to undergo gender reassignment surgery because he was gay. Dr Sadie Francis was later appointed as a gender identity specialist for Gwynedd, although she had no experience in this area. In the late 1980s, Sadie was appointed as a consultant psychiatrist although she was not, by GMC regulations, permitted to hold a consultant’s post, having not followed the appropriate career path. The GMC knew that a fiddle had been carried out and colluded with it. For many years the gender identity specialist in north Wales was Dr Kenny Midence, a clin psy who is a long standing member of Dafydd’s gang and has co-authored with gang members. Comments online regarding Midence’s service – he has a big private practice – suggest that if one hands the dosh over to Kenny, he’ll write the referral for gender reassignment surgery. It probably makes the patients leaving Midence’s office feel a lot better than those who left Randell’s did, but the ‘all comers welcome in return for dosh’ approach could prove disastrous a few years down the line if someone regrets their decision.

 

When Randell realised that the customers and their money were going elsewhere, he began arguing that surgery could be appropriate and that psychotherapy did not work. Even then Randell restricted surgery to ‘sane, intelligent, single and passable individuals’. ‘Passable’ meaning conforming to Randell’s rather 1950s ideas of being ‘ladylike’…. Dafydd once yelled at me that I was not a ‘normal woman’. Of course I wasn’t, I had a brain and I took the piss out of him.

Randell must have been a bit like one of the men in the Monty Python ‘Nudge Nudge’ sketch, in which Having Sex With A Lady is discussed. ‘Photographs ay he asked him knowingly’. Yeh, the child porn that was being produced in north Wales by Dafydd’s gang, or Dafydd’s mate Prof Linford Rees’s photos of Bathing Beauties (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’).

Lest anyone wade in with analyses of Randell’s idiocy being a consequence of him being in possession of testicles, let me tell you that I know Lady Doctors and Angels who’s ideas are every bit as laughable. One Lady Doctor told a friend of mine that many Lady Doctors think that ‘periods are horrible old fashioned things which we could well do without’; an Angel I know told female psych patients that they should always shave their armpits – similar advice was dispensed by ‘Jackie’ magazine in 1976; a Top Doc stated in front of female Angels that he could tell when his Lady Patients were well because they wore dresses; one of the much nicer Lady Doctors at Springfield Hospital always wore dresses to work ‘because a lot of my young female patients have problems with their femininity, so I always wear a dress to show them that I’m proud to be a woman’. I can see the idea behind that and this Lady Doctor wasn’t a vicious bitch like her colleagues, but she did know that some of her colleagues were sexually abusing their patients which might be why so many of the patients were in such distress. The nicer Lady Doctor wearing a dress wasn’t going to be sufficient to address that…

I could supply readers with many more laffs, the point that I am making is that the Top Docs and co are frequently as thick as yak shit and narrow minded with it and of course in north Wales and other areas they were preparing their patients for the sex trade. There are also many Top Docs and their colleagues with serious problems themselves in terms of body image, eating disorders etc and in in abusive relationships. Then there are the swathes on anti-depressants or who have alcohol problems… Dysfunction is everywhere among them and often their children.

 

Until the end of his life, Randall continued to refer to patients, including post-operatives, by the pronouns of their birth gender and would tell a male to female accepted for surgery that ‘you’ll always be a man’. This won’t have reflected any clinical position of Randell’s, it’ll just have been Randell trying to be as offensive as possible. The general psychiatry patients will have been asked to discuss their anxieties and then the info will have been used to cause them as much distress as possible. Marjorie Dawes is far more realistic than people who are not Empowered Service Users ever realise.

Most patients described Randell as brusque, rude and cold. However the model Tula aka Bond girl Caroline Cossey found him to be ‘absolutely charming’. Tula equated to Randell’s idea of what a woman was. Esther claimed that Sir Nicholas Fairbairn was absolutely charming and he was a child molesting, wife-beating drunk. See previous posts. If one wants to achieve stardom, one is obliged to say that foul people are absolutely charming.

Randell is the doctor who told Christopher Wilson, the author of Dancing With The Devil: The Windsors and Jimmy Donahue, that Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, had Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome. This rumour was doing the rounds, but one needs to ask how would Randell have known and if he did know for certain, what was he doing breaching confidentiality? The Royals are not immune from being kicked in the chops by the Top Docs, when I worked at St George’s, 1989-91, the gynae records of a member of the Royal Family were being passed around and were the source of much ribaldry and moralising. I suspect that this person had been smeared by the Top Docs for the same reason that Wallis Simpson was, but I am saying no more lest the target is identified.

Other patients of Randell’s included Rachel Padman, the physicist and Alice Purnell, the activist.

Purnell as a boy was sexually and physically abused at prep school by the Headmaster who was later convicted. Purnell worked as a research chemist and volunteer with the Samaritans. In 1965 Purnell, with Sylvia Carter, founded the Beaumont Society for transvestites. Initially there were almost as many overseas members as in the UK, with some in Malaysia, Kenya and other parts of the Commonwealth. Alice became the overseas contact person because of her French. Regional contacts were appointed but were often the only member in their region. Purnell was offered surgery by John Randell in 1966, but turned it down and married a woman instead, going on to have a family with her.

Alice was on Radio 4 with agony aunt Claire Raynor. Raynor knew about Top Doctors facilitating abuse, including Dafydd et al, many years ago. She kept quiet because she wanted a media career as Claire Rayner. See previous posts. Alice attended the TV/TS conferences at Leeds University in 1974, and Leicester University in 1975 – the latter was organized by the Beaumont Society. Leeds and Leicester were both host to paedophile/trafficking gangs directly linked to Dafydd’s gang. Also in 1975, Alice was a co-founder of the Beaumont Trust, a registered charity, which separately from the Beaumont Society, set up a helpline and published educational booklets on transgender topics. In 1976 Alice became Vice-President of the Beaumont Society, and President a year later.

In 1977, Alice trained as a nurse, specializing in geriatric services. She then worked as such for 26 years, at one time becoming a matron, including nursing support for transgender surgery.

She finally had surgery in 1982 after the dissolution of her marriage and remained President of the Beaumont Society until 1984. Alice joined HBIGDA (now WPATH) and attended its European meetings. She found that they were dominated by US concerns and that the Standards of Care were mainly to protect the surgeons and that the emphasis was on psychiatry rather than on psychology/counselling. Alice organized the first of the GENDYS conferences which was held at Manchester University in 1990, a conference which brought together each type of professional who deals with trans persons and each type of trans person. There were a further seven GENDYS conferences.

After obtaining a Masters degree in counselling and psychology, Alice co-founded the Gender Trust. It was a registered charity intended to help transgender rather than transvestite persons. Alice has lived most of her life in Sussex, the location of Dafydd’s partner gang as well as the brothels to which John Allen trafficked kids in care from north Wales.

Alice Purnell was awarded an OBE in the 2012 New Years Honours List, ‘for services to Transgender People’.  Alice Purnell contributed “Why does transexuality exist?” and “TV, TG, TS – What’s in a label?” in Michael Trevor Haslam’s volume Transvestism: A Guide. Beaumont Trust, 1993. Michael Haslam was one of the psychiatrists who starred in the Kerr-Haslam scandal. Haslam and his colleague William Kerr were Top Docs based in Yorkshire who raped and assaulted their female patients over decades under the guise of ‘sex therapy’. Numerous complaints were made about them by patients and a la Dafydd, their activities were openly discussed. An Angel who raised concerns was demoted and a Professor at Leeds who complained about them was told to shut it or he’d lose his job. There was no investigation until the 1990s when Kerr and Haslam were approaching retirement. Only one of them was imprisoned and not for very long. See post ‘All The Ingredients Of A Scandal’. One woman patient who had been assaulted by them was told that she would not be allowed to amend the records that they compiled about her. When the scandal finally hit the media, representatives of MIND who had ignored my complaints about those we know and love in north Wales appeared on prime time TV declaring that they were shocked and disgusted.


John Randell died of a heart attack in 1982. Just as Mary Wynch’s litigation against Dafydd and the gang began to move in the direction of the Master of the Rolls…

I don’t know whether the offensive John Randell of Charing Cross had offspring who became Top Docs as so many Top Docs do, but there is a Dr John Randall who was/is the Clinical Lead for the Blackburn with Darwen NHS Clinical Commissioning Group. His surname is Randall rather than Randell, but one look at Dr Randall’s biography tells us that he will know about the ring in the north west of England which was facilitated by Dafydd’s mates:

Dr Randall, MB ChB, MRCGPDRCOG, DipOccMED, qualified from Manchester University in 1988. He completed his hospital vocational training in Blackburn before becoming a GP in his current practice, in 1992; he is GP Principal at Oakenhurst Medical Practice in Barbara Castle Health Centre. Prior to the CCG forming in 2013, Dr Randall was a lead GP in Cardio Vascular Health for Blackburn with Darwen Primary Care Trust from 2002 until 2008.  As well as working in Occupational Medicine in various Lancashire industries, he was elected by his colleagues to the Local Medical Committee in 2011 and subsequently Vice Chair in 2012. He is a passionate advocate in emphasising the true value of family medicine. Dr Randall is married with three teenage children.  His interests outside of medicine include Manchester City FC, exploring the Highlands of Scotland and long distance running.

John Randell the offensive git from Charing Cross is all over the internet on trans websites; I note that he was linked with many of those we know and love who have starred on this blog before, particularly the lunatic Cardiff University contingent such as Dr Roy Mottram, who was a leading light in the Beaumont Society, along with Alice Purnell. See previous posts. The medical students at Cardiff in the 1980s knew that Mottram et al were bonkers and to be avoided and by the time that they were junior doctors they knew about Dafydd’s gang, about George Thomas, the lot. Those who didn’t want to be forced out of medicine and have their lives destroyed kept quiet about all of it. Those docs are now in their late 50s/early 60s and occupy roles as Professors and leaders of the profession. The gang rape of children and murders of witnesses. They knew about it.

After the offensive git from Charing Cross blocked Julia Grant’s surgery, Julia found another surgeon who Helped, Dr Michael Royle. After her gender reassignment surgery, Julia subsequently haemorrhaged, collapsed and nearly died. She was taken to hospital and was accused of having performed an abortion on herself. The Top Docs didn’t even realise that Julia didn’t have a uterus in which to gestate a foetus to abort, but had in fact undergone reassignment surgery which had gone horribly wrong. Julia believed that the Top Docs didn’t understand what had happened because in those days gender reassignment was so rare. No, they were either grossly incompetent or they knew that Julia had crossed the path of the Fuhrer in Charing Cross so like Brown and I, Julia was on the blacklist and competent healthcare would never be forthcoming. I have not read anything that suggests that Dr Michael Royle, the surgeon who nearly killed Julia and left her with lifelong disabilities, was ever the focus of an investigation.

When the documentary about Julia Grant that I watched was screened, I was in the throes of Empowered Service Userdom and was regularly being arrested by Dafydd’s gang on the grounds of their perjury. I watched the documentary with Patient F and we discussed how Julia’s life had been wrecked by the Top Docs. A few days later we discussed the programme with Ella Fisk, the Angel who ran the day centre at the Hergest Unit. Ella told us that she was incensed by Randell’s treatment of his patient and that when she was young, she had known a lot of Top Docs like that, but now things were very different. Ella knew about Dafydd and the gang. She knew that at the very time that she had that discussion with me, that I had no idea that Tony Francis had for years being forging documents and evidence about my alleged ‘dangerousness’, that he was still doing this and that Francis and Dafydd had collected ‘evidence’ from numerous third parties, even from people with links to the gang who knew me in Somerset when I was a teenager, which was being accumulated to justify my incarceration in a secure hospital.

Ella didn’t conduct herself like they did, I liked Ella, but she knew what they were doing and did not raise any concerns. I suspect that Ella was terrified of them. But the security services knew what they were doing as well and they didn’t stop them either.

There is a lot of info about the Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic and it’s history online; it is fascinating stuff and I could be blogging about that alone for several posts, so I’ll just make a few brief observations here. People involved with the Charing Cross GIC were also involved with the Albany Trust, which has at times conducted out research in support of paedophilia. The Albany Trust received Home Office funding when Leon Brittan was Home Secretary.

Rachael Webb underwent gender reassignment surgery as a result of a referral from Charing Cross. I encountered Rachael Webb when I worked at Bangor University. After Brown and I had appeared in the media discussing the parlous state of the mental health services, Rachael began e mailing me. That was fine by me, we received communication from a few people who had been treated appallingly but who’s complaints had got nowhere and one couple were in hiding after having received threats. However it became clear that Rachael’s reason for contacting me wasn’t to support an improved deal for the targets of those we know and love. Rachael asked Brown and I to act as expert witnesses to help her to get her HGV licence back after she had lost it as the result of a drink driving conviction. I explained that we were sociologists, we were in no position to act as expert medical witnesses. She suggested that we should just lie. I said no. So Rachael offered to pay us to lie. I said no and Rachael told me that it was OK to lie as an expert witness, a Top Doctor had done it before for her… He was probably called Dafydd.

 

John Randell’s partner in crime, Peter Phillip, who performed the surgery on those whom Randell deemed suitable on the basis that they had the characteristics of Real Women and wore nylons, girdles, ran a duster over the shelves daily and couldn’t do science, was a urologist. Virtually all trace of Peter Phillip has been eliminated from the internet. North Wales however has its very own Peter Phillip, in terms of a urologist who was enthusiastic about gender reassignment surgery. I am talking about Dr Chris aka Christine Evans, a local celeb in Denbighshire. Dr Chris is a retired surgeon who worked at the lethal Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, but like Dafydd, Dr Chris continued working after retirement and used this to protect Dafydd’s gang. Dr Chris also served as a Councillor for Prestatyn and was a mover and shaker behind ‘The Raven’, a community pub. Dr Chris helpfully wrote a blog in her capacity as a Councillor, in which she explained that she would ensure that the jobs of her surgeon colleagues at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd would be protected now that they were under threat. Were these surgeons local heroes, dedicated to their patients? No. They were grossly incompetent, had killed a few too many people and openly boasted that they were running the ‘service’ for their convenience, not for that of the patients. They were so bad that even the Royal College of Surgeons wrote a report condemning them and saying that the situation could not be allowed to continue. Call Dr Chris!

The surgeons of Ysbyty Glan Clwyd had disgraced themselves to such a degree that no-one would listen to the word of a surgeon from Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, so Dr Chris couldn’t wield influence in that way. Dr Chris hit on a better ruse. Dr Chris doubled up as a Patients’ Champ and got her mates to appoint her to the post of Leader of the North Wales Community Health Council, the Patients’ Voice and Watchdog. It wasn’t difficult for Dr Chris to do this, because the CHC appointments are not in the gift of a democratic vote on the part of any group of patients, they are instead the responsibility of the Welsh Gov’t and County Councils. Dr Chris wasn’t the only Top Doc on the CHC; there was a GP from Anglesey as well as Dr Sadie Francis. Other CHC members included Councillors and their relatives or other NHS staff and their friends and relatives. More recently, Eleanor Burnham, a former Lib Dem AM who was a social work manager and member of the Mental Health Tribunal for the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, arrived on the CHC after poor old Dr Chris resigned in the wake of revelations re her agenda. See previous posts…

When Dr Chris was the Patients’ Voice, the CHC simply refused to investigate complaints about the mental health services, as well as many other matters. Dr Chris had to attend the Betsi Board meetings in her capacity as the Patients’ Champ, so Dr Chris would turn up for the meeting, stay for the first 15 minutes during which time she would Give Her Orders and then would walk out, leaving everyone else to remain for the rest of the 2 hour (or longer) meeting.

I studied Dr Chris and I noticed that she was of the variety of Lady Surgeon who was so butch that she certainly wouldn’t pass John Randall’s Femininity Test. Dr Chris, being a urologist, was well-known for operating on men’s bits and she would use her status in this regard to intimidate men. All men, not just men upon whom she had operated. This is a known technique of Lady Doctors like Dr Chris; Dr Chris had a reputation among women patients of being a crude old bag who was not to be taken seriously, but men are less likely to take the piss out of the Dr Chris’s of the earth. It’s OK men, we did it for you! Dr fucking Chris had no idea of the hilarity that she elicited, which was how I was able to gather so much info on her and publicise why she had led a Military Coup at the CHC.

Dr Chris was a friend of Tony Francis.

Dr Chris enjoyed photo opportunities and during her Brave Battle to defend the jobs of the mates of a gang of paedophiles who were maiming and killing their patients. Dr Chris had her photo taken with Wales’s most famous transgender person and indeed one of the most well-known trans people in the world, the travel writer Jan Morris. When Jan was James, she was part of the 1953 Everest expedition team, along with Sir Charles Evans, the Principal of UNCW for so many years… Jan and her son Twm Morys, another well-known Welsh writer, were generous in their praise of Dr Chris. Jan used to be a posh English man from Oxford but he reinvented himself as a Welsh woman of the proletariat. Jan’s son Twm spent his early years in Oxford, then went to Shrewsbury School, but he too is now a patriotic Welshman. I have no objection to this, of course it’s great when people who migrate to Wales love the country and Jan and Twm are both talented writers, but they have certainly provided much good PR for some very unpleasant people. See previous posts…

Jan Morris was one of John Randell’s patients in the early 1960s. Randell did offer Jan surgery but she could only have surgery in the UK if she divorced her wife, which, to Jan’s credit, she refused to do. So Jan went to Casablanca and had surgery there. Jan’s book ‘Conundrum’ provided an account of it. Jan has not suffered at the hands of John Randell, Dr Chris et al in the way that so many others have, because Jan is posh, she has money and is a famous writer. So the Top Docs who butcher and abuse the proles use Jan for a bit of free publicity when anyone dares challenge them.

 

The security services knew that John Randell was a dangerous doctor who was part of a network facilitating serious organised crime. No-one stopped him. Hundreds of vulnerable, desperate patients continued to be sent into his jaws, as well as into the jaws of his mates.

So why did you let it happen then MI5? It wasn’t just me, I was just one who happened to survive. Where were the public warnings? Why were patients not told?

Julia Grant was part of the LGBT scene in Manchester in the 1980s and 90s. She knew about Bob Hobson et al and she knew about the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal as well. I bet that Julia also knew about Sir Peter Morrison in Chester and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. If a kid who had grown up in care in north Wales could tell me some 10 yrs ago about the ‘vice ring’ in Buck House involving Backstairs Billy aka William Tallon, the Queen Mum’s loyal retainer who died from an HIV related illness in 2007, why was that vice ring only reported in the media recently? It was in existence by the 1980s and probably years before then.

Now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you…

An major issue of national security and indeed international security, this network of traffickers jetted off abroad and had a global network. MI5 infiltrated the network successfully years ago, yet they did not stop the abuse of patients, some of whom died. They did not protect people like my friends and I who had begun to realise the enormity of the wrongdoing, instead they did all that they could to put us out of action. Meanwhile a constant source of prey for those we know and love were Referred For Help. Whatever MI5 did do about those we know and love, it was far too little too late. You needed a plant in medicine who would have brought down the Top Docs 30 yrs ago C or M or whatever your name is. That was where the source of the biggest problem was.

 

Recent posts have explained how Dafydd was a personal mate of Harold Wilson’s Health Minister, 1964-68, Sir Kenneth Robinson. Like David Ennals, Robinson was a big wig in MIND, so helped Dafydd from that angle as well as during the course of his job in Gov’t. I explained in one of my comments following my post ‘The Big Questions’ that I have just acquired a copy of Richard Crossman’s ‘Diaries’. I have already spotted some treasures in Vol III, 1968-70, regarding Brian Abel-Smith and Peter Shore.

Professor Brian Abel-Smith was the LSE economist who designed the flawed economic model which underpinned Nye’s NHS and who oversaw the escalating problems for the next few decades until in 1978, even Abel-Smith gave up with the  civil wars and the intransigent and greedy Top Docs and left his role as a DHSS adviser to take a job as adviser to Peter Shore, the Labour MP for Stepney, 1964-74 and for Tower Hamlets, Stepney and Poplar, then Bethnal Green and Stepney, 1974-97.

Abel-Smith went to work for Peter Shore when Shore was Secretary of State for the Environment and  advised Shore on housing and urban planning issues.

Shore was the MP for a constituency in which Dafydd’s partner gang was busy. Kids in care from Shore’s patch were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. Shore sprang into action to keep the gang out of serious slurry again in the mid-late 1980s, when the HIV infected kids in care who had been trafficked back to the East End as rent boys began dying of AIDS. Shore extracted funding out of Ken Clarke at the DoH to convert the disused Mildmay Mission Hospital in Shoreditch into an AIDS hospice. The victims of John Allen and Dafydd’s gang died in invisibility as their Confidentiality Was Protected, because they were People Who Were Stigmatised. See post ‘Apocalypse Now’.

Shore was Head of the Labour Party’s Research Dept, 1959-64. He was PPS to the PM Harold Wilson, 1965-66; Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Technology, 1966-67 and the Dept of Economic Affairs, 1967-69; Minister Without Portfolio, 1969-70; and in 1969, Deputy Leader of the Commons. In 1974 Shore became Secretary of State for Trade and in 1976, Secretary of State for the Environment. See previous posts for more info on Peter Shore who along with a few others was once A Future Leader Of The Labour Party.

Shore’s constituency was the turf of Lord Elwyn-Jones and his artist wife, Pearl Binder and their social worker son. See previous posts…

Abel-Smith was gay – it was why he turned down the offer of a safe Labour seat, he feared that his ‘private life’ would be made public and cause huge damage – and he and his partner ran a gents outfitters/fashion chain which flogged clothes to the best, including the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and the Who. Dafydd’s gang procured sex workers for those on the rock and pop scene at that time. See previous posts for info…

Abel-Smith was appointed Prof of Social Administration at the LSE in 1965, the year that he launched his fashion chain. He was a member of the South West Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board, 1956-63; Chairman of the Chelsea and Kensington Hospital Management Committee, 1962-62; a Governor of Tommy’s, 1957-68 and of the Maudsley and Institute of Psychiatry, 1963-67. Abel-Smith was a Governor of every institution in which Dafydd and his mates were facilitating a sex abuse ring. Abel-Smith served as a Senior Adviser to the Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1968-70 and was reappointed in 1974.

A gang of paedophiles ran the NHS and things were arranged to ensure that they were placed in positions which enabled them to do this. Brown has told me for years that a great many people’s careers and liberty depended upon and still depend upon Dafydd remaining unchallenged, no matter what he did/does.

I have also learnt from Crossman’s Diaries that Peter Shore’s wife was a Formidable Lady Doctor, Dr Elizabeth Shore. Prior to marrying Shore, she was Dr Elizabeth Wrong no less. Dr Wrong married Peter Shore in 1948. She was a Fellow, Royal College of Physicians, London; a Member, Royal College of Surgeons; a Fellow, Faculty of Community Medicine; a Member, Royal College of Physicians, London.

Dr Elizabeth Shore was Deputy Chief Medical Officer for the DHSS, 1977- 1984, while the Secretaries of State for the DHSS were David Ennals, then Patrick Jenkin, then Norman Fowler. While Dr Liz was at the top of the DHSS, Mary Wynch was unlawfully arrested and imprisoned, kids in care in north Wales were being gang raped, trafficked, fitted up for criminal offences and found dead, as were psych patients. Gwynne the lobotomist was sitting in the UCNW Student Heath Centre running the trafficking ring and Brown and I were openly threatened. St George’s were running their ring in south London, assisted by the Maudsley and others… At the DHSS, Health Minister Lord Simon Glenarthur – who for years was a Director of the MDU, which supplied the legal advisers to Dafydd and the Drs Francis, legal advisers who knew that all three of them had perjured themselves when they demanded my imprisonment – ordered the NHS to use blood products purchased from the US known to be infected with Hep B and HIV. Thousands of patients became infected and many have died, more will do. See previous posts.

It was when Dr Liz was Deputy CMO that Patient F found out about the boys in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor being violently assaulted by their social workers. Patient F challenged the social workers about it and dared tell other people. He was soon visited by the Drug Squad, fitted up for class A drugs, then for arson, then imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre where he heard what was probably a murder of an inmate by the screws, was then transferred to the ‘care’ of Dafydd, who sectioned him for a year in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh… In 1993, the gang prevented F having any access to his new baby after accusing him of being a risk to the baby and placed the baby with a family containing two known child abusers. F never saw his son again.

Patrick Jenkin was a member of Middle Temple, alongside Ronnie Waterhouse and was of the same vintage as Ronnie. When questioned on matters of equal pay, Patrick Jenkin stated that if God had wanted us to have equal pay, He would not have created Man and Woman. And when they say no they mean yes. Jenkin’s son Lord Bernard and Bernard’s Lady wife are both busy Tory peers. See previous posts.

Norman Fowler was the man who, along with Dr Liz’s boss Sir Donald Acheson – another mate of Dafydd’s – persuaded Thatch to agree to the AIDS public education programme, although Thatch had traumas over the references to the words ‘back passage’, by explaining to her than those friends and Ministers of hers who were forcing their members into the back passages of the boys in care in north Wales and elsewhere were at serious risk of contracting a virus which would kill them and even BUPA wouldn’t be able to save their lives. Someone explained to Thatch that when Peter Morrison had anal sex with kids in care, his penis ruptured the capillaries in their back passages and HIV, being carried in body fluids, was a lot more likely to be transmitted than when Denis did the business with Thatch via her front bottom. Although had Denis been infected, Thatch would not have been 100% safe. Which is why the people forced into sex work by Dafydd charged extra for Doing It Without A Condom. See previous posts for more Acheson and Fowler-related fun.

Thatch allowed the public education campaigned but she was shocked and disgusted at What They Did and we really Didn’t Need To Hear About It All The Time.

Dr Liz was Dean of Postgrad Medicine for the North-West Thames Region, 1985-93 and Dean of Postgrad Medical Education for the North Thames Region, 1993-95.

Dr Liz was a Director of the Medical Women’s Federation, 1991-92 and the Policy Studies Institute, 1992-98.

Dr Liz was appointed Companion, Order of the Bath (C.B.) in 1980. As Mary Wynch finally emerged from the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and Mr Thrope had just a few months previously been found Not Guilty.

Dr Liz became Lady Shore of Stepney on 5 June 1997, when her people trafficking husband became Lord Shore, as the world called the former kids in care who were by then giving evidence to the Waterhouse Inquiry liars because they had criminal convictions – witnesses to Dafydd’s criminality ended up with criminal convictions, even those who were medical researchers with postgrad degrees – and drug problems. One of the Shores’ children died as a result of illicit drug use.

The Shores were a couple of swells who lived in the best hotels.

We’ve got a Lady Doctor if you’d prefer to see her!

Can you just find me one who’s not a bloody sociopath working for a gang of sex offenders, male, female or intersex, I don’t mind really?

They All Did it To Help The Poor!

Roman Road, Bow in the 1960s

  • Bethnal Green, where in 1986, I and my friends were threatened by sex offenders and nasties linked to Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’), was on Lord and Lady S’s manor. The area has now been gentrified, so the Poor who were Helped can’t afford to live there any longer.

The Big Questions

My post ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’ introduced Lord John Krebs to this blog. Lord John Krebs is an ornithologist who’s own research is concerned with the behaviour of birds. I mentioned that Lord John Krebs’s dad, Hans Krebs, was one of the biggest names in 20th century science as a result of discovering the Krebs cycle, the sequence of chemical reactions in cells involved in cellular respiration. Hans Krebs was knighted for discovering the Krebs cycle, but as I explained in my previous post, John Krebs discovered a paedophile ring when he worked as a zoologist at UCNW, which took him even further that his dad went after discovering the Krebs cycle. I did note that John Krebs was not the only person who discovered a paedophile ring in UCNW, a few other people did as well but they had their careers and lives ruined whereas John ended up in the Lords. I mentioned that I suspected that the rather different fate of John Krebs after he discovered a paedophile ring may have been in some way linked to his dad being the Krebs of the Krebs cycle fame. So here’s a bit of background on Hans Krebs. Can readers find someone associated with Miranda hidden in the picture, as ‘Teddy Bear’ comic would have asked in 1970…

Sir Hans Adolf Krebs was a German-born Top Doctor and biochemist. Although he is best known for his discovery of the Krebs cycle, for which he received a Nobel Prize in 1953, Krebs, with Hans Kornberg, also discovered the glyoxylate cycle, a slight variation of the citric acid cycle found in plants, bacteria, protists and fungi. Krebs died in 1981 in Oxford.

Krebs was born in Hildesheim, Germany, to Georg Krebs, an ENT surgeon, and Alma Krebs (née Davidson). He was descended from Jewish-Silesian ancestry. Krebs attended the famous Gymnasium Andreanum in his home town. In September 1918, six months short of completing his secondary school education, Krebs was conscripted into the Imperial German Army and was allowed to take an emergency examination for his high school diploma. The war ended two months later and his conscription ended.

Krebs decided to follow in his father’s footsteps as a Top Doctor and entered the University of Gottingen in December 1918 to study medicine. In 1919 Krebs transferred to the University of Freiburg. In 1923 Krebs published his first scientific paper; he completed his medical course in December of the same year. Krebs then spent one year at the Third Medical Clinic in the University of Berlin obtaining his Doctor of Medicine degree and a medical license. By then Krebs had redirected his career goal away from that of a practising Top Doctor to that of a research biochemist. In 1924 Krebs studied at the Department of Chemistry at the Pathological Institute of the Charité Hospital, in Berlin. He was awarded his MD in 1925 from the University of Hamburg.

In 1926 Hans Krebs joined Otto Heinrich Warburg as a research assistant at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Biology in Dahlem, Berlin. In 1930, Warburg urged Krebs to move on and he took up the position of Assistant in the Department of Medicine at the Municipal Hospital in Altona (now part of Hamburg). The next year he moved to the Medical Clinic of the University of Freiburg, where he was in charge of about 40 patients and was at liberty to do his own research. Before a year was over at Freiburg, Krebs, with research student Kurt Henseleit, published their discovery of the urea cycle ie. the Krebs–Henseleit cycle. Together they also developed the Krebs–Henseleit buffer solution, used for studying blood flow in arteries.

Krebs’s life as a respected German scientist came to a halt in 1933 with the rise of Hitler to power. Germany decreed the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service, which removed all non-Germans and anti-Nazis from professional occupations. Krebs received his official dismissal from his job in April 1933 and his service was terminated on 1 July 1933. Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins at Cambridge University immediately came to his rescue and persuaded Cambridge to recruit Krebs as Hopkins’ colleague in the Department of Biochemistry. By July 1933 Krebs was settled in Cambridge with financial support from the Rockefeller Foundation.

Hans Krebs was allowed by the German Gov’t to take his equipment and research samples to England, but I don’t know why they permitted this. The equipment and samples were pivotal to Krebs’s later work, especially the manometer developed by Warburg for the measurement of oxygen consumption in tissues, it was the basis for his research. Krebs was appointed as Demonstrator in Biochemistry in 1934 and in 1935 the University of Sheffield offered Krebs the post of Lecturer in Pharmacology. Krebs worked at Sheffield University for 19 years. In 1938, the University of Sheffield opened what is now the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology; Krebs became its first Head and subsequently Professor in 1945.

In 1943 Krebs took over the running of the Sorby Research Institute, a research facility that operated in Sheffield during and immediately after WW II, closing in 1946. The Institute mostly carried out research into nutrition, an important consideration in wartime Britain. However, other kinds of research was also undertaken and some of the experiments were dangerous and unethical. The volunteers at the Sorby Research Institute were mainly conscientious objectors and I’m unclear as to whether they were coerced into volunteering or how informed they were with regard to the research.

The first Director of the Sorby Research Institute was Kenneth Mellanby, a Royal Society Fellow at Sheffield University. The Sorby began when early in 1941, twelve conscientious objectors were recruited via the Sheffield Pacifist Service Unit for research that would “benefit humanity”. No work that had a direct military application was undertaken since this would not have been acceptable to many conscientious objectors. The establishment was founded on the personal initiative of Mellanby and at first he was free to carry out whatever investigations he chose. Although Mellanby wished to do something for the war effort, the military of the time had no use for biologists. Consequently, Mellanby initiated what he considered useful work himself.

Kenneth Mellanby was an ecologist and entomologist who helped to found Nigeria’s first university, the University of Ibadan and was its first Principal, 1947–1953. On his return to England, Mellanby worked at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and then became Head of the Entomology Department at Rothamstead Experimental Station. In 1961, Mellanby founded and served as Director of Monks Wood Experimental Station, an ecological research centre in Huntingdon, England. Mellanby started the journal ‘Environmental Pollution’ in 1970.

Mellanby rather blotted his copybook by promoting the use of DDT, particularly to combat malaria. On p. 75 of his book The DDT Story, Mellanby wrote:

[The] consumption of smaller doses in the milligram range appears to be quite harmless. I know that I myself, when lecturing about DDT during the years immediately after World War II, frequently consumed a substantial pinch of DDT, to the consternation of the audience, but with no apparent harm to myself, either then or during the next 40 years. 

Kenneth Mellanby died in Dec 1993. I have been told that Mellanby contributed to the effort to ensure that my friends and I who worked in biology/medical research had such difficulty after we graduated from UCNW. The Zoology Dept at UCNW which hosted Hans Krebs’s son John Krebs, who discovered a paedophile ring, had a big interest in entomology… There were also a lot of ecologists working at UCNW while Dafydd’s gang used the institution as a vehicle for the trafficking ring. I have mentioned the most famous of them in previous posts, the Plant Biologist Prof Peter Greig-Smith. I was friends with some of the students on the MSc Ecology course which Greig-Smith used to run virtually single-handedly. Not only was Greig-Smith’s son, also Peter Greig-Smith, a Top Doc in Liverpool with Dafydd’s mates as colleagues – he was a keen birder too and published on ornithology, so he will have known John Krebs who discovered a paedophile ring – but Prof Greig-Smith was formerly of Cambridge University and of the generation from which the British security services recruited. Greig-Smith knew the Cambridge botanist Prof Edred Henry Corner, who was Douglas Hurd’s uncle. See previous posts eg. ‘Additional Security Measures’ for further details of the Greig-Smith UCNW network which protected Dafydd and the gang.

Hurd was Home Secretary, 1985-89, while Dafydd’s gang were committing serious crime with impunity and fitting people like me up. Hurd had previously served as N Ireland Secretary, Sept 1984-Sept 1985, in which capacity he concealed the elite paedophile ring based in the Kincora Boys’ Home, which was linked to gangs on the mainland, including Dafydd et al. Lord Mountbatten and Sir Anthony Blunt were both alleged to have been involved with the abuse at Kincora. Hurd was an MP who was working for the security services. He seems to have had his priorities wrong. When Hurd was at Eton, he had been taught by Alan Barker, Trumpers’ husband and Trumpers boasted about using Barker’s friendship with Hurd to bag her Gov’t appointments. See post ’95 Glorious Years!’ Trumpers and Barker lived in Cambridge during the 1960s and 70s, when the elite trafficking ring was in operation there. Trumpers was friends with Rab Butler who at that time was Master of Trinity College, Cambridge. Carlo was a student at Trinity while Trumpers was hobnobbing and Rab was appointed as Carlo’s special mentor. Somehow Trumpers knew Savile and when she was a junior Health Minister, in the mid-1980s, it was she who appointed Savile to the Broadmoor management task force. See posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’.

 

Some accounts of the experiments at the Sorby Research Institute raise eyebrows today. For example, in order to conduct research into the scabies mite, the volunteers needed to catch scabies and they did this by wearing the used, unwashed underwear of people who had scabies. This elicits the yuk factor very effectively these days, but in the 1940s, zoologists did this sort of thing as a matter of course. Zoologists working in a Gov’t research facility contributing towards the war effort will not have thought twice about wearing the knickers of someone with scabies and I don’t think that it is fair for us to condemn the Sorby for doing that. However, there was other research conducted at the Sorby which was questionable at the time, such as the experiment which required that blood circulation to limbs was cut off with elastic bands and other experiments which involved infecting people with malaria and doing nasty thing to people in order to investigate surgical shock. Although the volunteers who were given malaria could then be doused in DDT, so all’s well that ends well.

There were zoologists who were still carrying on a bit like this at UCNW when I was an undergrad and when John Krebs discovered a paedophile ring. There were things going on at UCNW at the time on the part of the zoologists and biochemists that were Kept Secret. I only got a whiff of them because of two friends of mine who were doing PhDs in the areas which were being Kept Secret. By the 1980s, sensitivities with regard to research on animals had begun to be noticeable, but not usually at places like UCNW. Medical schools and of course Colin Blakemore in particular were targeted (see previous posts), but not many people got very excited about the Zoology Dept at UCNW because it was mostly fish or creepy crawlies under investigation, not furry things with appealing eyes. UCNW admitted to having an Animal House with rabbits, but they didn’t publicise much more.

There was an episode of animal rights leaflets being distributed in 1984 and a very small number of students objected to some of the undergrad dissection practicals. The students were confronted very aggressively by the lecturers and were effectively told to stop moaning or leave university. Except for one student, a mature student called Ruth Manion, who as I explained in my post ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’, was led to believe that there was No Cruelty happening. The postdocs helping with the practicals were told to lie to Ruth Manion re animal dissection and research because she was not someone with whom UCNW wanted to tangle. Ruth Manion had fallen out with the Dept of Agriculture big style in her first year, then fell out with the Dept of Plant Biology, yet she wasn’t kicked about like the other students who had done that. Great care was taken not to piss Ruth Manion off. She had a baby a few months before finals and UCNW were very much more accommodating with regard to that as well and even the Top Docs were nice to Ruth Manion. I mentioned in a previous post that another student who became pregnant and refused to be coerced into a visit to the private abortionist in Chester who was risking women’s lives (see post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’), was just abandoned by the Student Health Centre and the University, although the father of the baby was incredibly supportive and there was a happy ending for them.

Ruth Manion found out about a few things at UCNW that enabled her to wield a big stick at people and I suspect that one of those things was the presence of a lobotomist sitting in the Student Health Centre, as well as the paedophile ring that John Krebs discovered…

Dr D.G.E. Wood was a key player in the ring and he was married to Dr Chris Wood, a lecturer in the Plant Biology Dept. Other lecturers in Plant Biology as well as other Depts were married to or friends with members of Dafydd’s gang, social workers, Angels etc.

My post ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’ mentioned that it was Prof John Harper, another ecologist who worked in the Plant Biology Dept at UCNW, who came to Ruth Manion’s rescue when she fell out with Dafydd’s allies in the Agri Dept. It was only after I began this blog that I discovered that at one of the times when Dafydd et al had sent up the paedophiles in distress flare, Prof Harper had published a ‘ground breaking’ piece of research – this was de rigueur whenever the gang were under investigation – with Prof Eric Sunderland. Sunderland, a posh Welshman from Carmarthenshire, was the Principal of UCNW who had been headhunted in 1984 from Durham University, a stronghold of Dafydd’s partner gang in the north east. Eric Sunderland wasn’t mad and rude as so many of the gang were but it is very obvious to me now that he was a highly effective paedophiles’ friend because he wasn’t mad and rude. Sunderland was a social anthropologist. Although biologists and social scientists are encouraged to work together these days – one of my friends is involved with such work – it is even now considered cutting edge. So it would have been very unusual for Sunderland, who was the Principal anyway, to suddenly start publishing with an ecologist. I was told that Harper was an unscrupulous man who plagiarised his research assistants’ work and did very little himself despite his reputation as a big name in ecology. Those two were up to something and it will have been related to the paedophile ring that John Krebs discovered.

The other thing that the students noticed about Ruth Manion, as well as her falling out with everyone and being treated very carefully, was that she was rather twee and had a lot more money than most people, even mature financially stable people. Ruth Manion was so refined that she ate caviar – the expensive black caviar, not the cut price red caviar that comes out for wedding anniversaries – on biology field trips. My friend Anne witnessed it. Anne was on the coach when the biologists were having their lunch and Ruth Manion was under observation (she was certainly of interest) and another student said to Anne ‘she’s eating little black balls’. Anne checked and Ruth was indeed dining on caviar. Well she didn’t buy that in Bangor. You probably couldn’t have purchased black caviar in Chester in those days, Sir Peter Morrison will have had to have picked up his supply when he was at his main residence in Belgravia.

The Peter Morrison who was abusing kids in care in north Wales. The Tory MP for Chester, Thatcher’s friend and the man who’s sister was Dame Mary Morrison, Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Lilibet, mother of Carlo, the Chancellor of UCNW. All of whom were members of the black caviar eating classes themselves.

Ruth Manion was spotted by Anne eating caviar on a coach in 1980. At the time Peter Morrison was Lord Commissioner of the Treasury. Douglas Hurd was Minister for Europe. Mary Wynch had been illegally imprisoned by Dafydd and was in consultation with lawyers to begin legal action. Jeremy Thrope – who’s wife Miriam was formerly married to Lilibet’s cousin, the Earl of Harewood and no doubt enjoyed consuming little black balls herself – had months previously walked out of the Old Bailey a free man… Previous posts eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin’ have described the panic and meltdown at UCNW at the time…

By the time that we graduated in 1984, when Ruth once more received business class treatment with regard to all aspects of her life, Peter Morrison was Minister of State at the Dept of Employment. The Secretary of State for Employment was Tom King, who as regular readers will know was the MP for Bridgwater, the constituency in which Brown and I grew up and where many of our relatives and friends still lived. Being concerned with Employment, it was of course logical that Lord King and his network did their best to ensure that Brown and I and those who supported us remained unemployed as often as possible for as long as possible. Scroungers with postgrad degrees and publications!

The Lord King of Bridgwater
Official portrait of Lord King of Bridgwater crop 2.jpg

Lord King’s wife Jane famously used to make one sausage roll last all evening when she and Tom made a rare appearance in the constituency. Jane’s excuse for this was that she was taking care of her figure. I suspect that it was because Bridgwater Tory Party couldn’t afford the little black balls which will have been the staple fodder for Lady Jane.

Lord King didn’t live in Bridgwater because it was a bit of a dump. He didn’t even live in Bath. He lived in Wiltshire. I have previously stated on the blog that he lived in Gloucestershire; many apologies, I need to amend that, it was definitely Wiltshire. Which was where Sir Peter Morrison’s family seat was, Sir Peter’s dad being Lord Margadale. Peter’s brother Charles was the Tory MP for Devizes. See previous posts.

Brown remembered the other day that Tom King was not one to waste his time going to constituency events or opening fetes. No, I can’t ever remember seeing a poster anywhere advertising Tom’s presence at a fete. Or indeed anything else. I spent a number of entire days as a child at Tory fund-raising events, Christmas Fairs and the like, in Bridgwater Town Hall and I think that I only ever saw King at one of them and he literally dashed through before the crowds had arrived and buggered off again. Well I stayed all day Tom. I helped put the toys in the sawdust tub for the lucky dip thing AND I hid them properly so that the other kids would have to root around to uncover them; I helped do the teas and the scones – not the sausage rolls, because your fucking wife wasn’t present so she didn’t need to be catered for; my Auntie made big stuffed toys to sell; I helped with that stall where you took a raffle ticket and in exchange got a jar of something which depending on your luck could be jam or something more exciting…

And in return your Gov’t tried to have me assassinated!

When I tell that to the young people of today they don’t believe me.

Like John Krebs, Ruth Manion might well have discovered a paedophile ring, but I don’t think that she found out about the Secrets of the Zoology Dept though, because those Secrets involved Experiments On Big Mammals eg. calves and if Ruth had have found out she’d have gone apeshit because she was an anti-vivisectionist. Except in the cases of fish, who’s eggs are needed for consumption of course. There were Calves Hidden Away somewhere at UCNW but I never found out where. I knew someone who’s PhD involved experiments on those calves, in collaboration with a Top Doctor from Ysbyty Gwynedd. By the end of his PhD, this student was happy to confirm that They Are A Load Of Bastards at Ysbyty Gwynedd and that he would be leaving the area…

Ah the doctors they were wonderful! Even though they were Keeping Animals In Secret and doing things with which zoology students didn’t want to remain involved. Uncle Harry’s colleagues were very good at keeping the caviar consuming classes happy though.

Here’s some people whom Tom did not try to have murdered, drinking Chateau de Chasselas:

The sex abuse ring in Yorkshire run by Jimmy Savile and his mates was linked to Dafydd’s ring in north Wales and Savile visited Bryn Estyn. One boy alleged that he was gang raped in Savile’s presence.

The Bridgwater Tories wanted Savile to make a guest appearance at one of their events – well the constituency MP wasn’t going to turn up was he, so Savile would have been the next best thing – but Savile wanted a great deal of money. I think that it was about £20k. That was in about 1972 and the Bridgwater Tories were all very shocked that the man who did so much for charidee wanted so much money, far more than they could scrape together, even with my free labour on the lucky dip bran tub. There must have been many other people who found that Savile would only attend an Event if he was given a great deal of money. Not a word of this ever found its way into the media reports about Savile. But then neither did anything about the sexual assault on kids in hospitals and the pan-European trafficking ring who were was murdering witnesses.

 

Perhaps Lord John Krebs who discovered a paedophile ring can let us know what Secrets with regard to big sentient mammals it was that his former colleagues at UCNW were keeping? I was told by PhD students that there were Calves Who Were Hidden In Case Of Protests and because they were hidden the calves had no daylight or fresh air. A bit like the victims of the paedophile ring which John Krebs discovered once they were banged up in Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon after raising objections.

To return to the father of John Krebs who discovered the paedophile ring. The MRC funded the research at the Sorby. Hans Krebs took over from Mellanby as Director of the Sorby in 1943; it was in 1944 that the MRC established the MRC Unit for Cell Metabolism Research at Sheffield University and Krebs was appointed the Director. I suspect that Krebs’s activities at the Sorby will have had something to do with the establishment of this MRC Unit. Krebs did so well out of the MRC and his laboratory became so large that it was nicknamed ‘Krebs’s Empire’.

Krebs moved his MRC empire to Oxford University in 1954 and was appointed Whitley Professor of Biochemistry, holding that post until his retirement in 1967. After retirement, Krebs continued his research and took his MRC Unit to the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine at the Radcliffe Infirmary Oxford. 

Sir Charles Evans, the Principal of UCNW for many years between the mid-1950s and 1984, was a neurosurgeon who worked with the young Dafydd’s senior colleagues on Merseyside before he ran UCNW. Sir Charles as a young Top Doc had trained and worked at Oxford. Top Docs love their alumni networks, it doesn’t matter if it was a long time ago, Sir Charles’s mates at Oxford will have been busy with Hans Krebs’s mates at Oxford. Sir Charles became an Everest Hero in 1953 and Hans won a Nobel Prize in the same year! Something would definitely have been arranged in the wake of John Krebs discovering a paedophile ring and on every occasion that Dafydd sent up a distress flare as well.

Wasn’t there another Event in 1953?? I can’t quite remember what it was, but I know that it involved a lot of baroque tastelessness and some degenerates…

Hans Krebs with wife in Stockholm in 1953. I am gratified to see that Mrs Krebs was correctly dressed for the occasion, in so far as she wore gloves which covered the elbow, although I note that she was not wearing a hat.

The Royals could always be relied upon to set an example.

Krebs met Margaret Cicely Fieldhouse when he moved to Sheffield in 1935. They married on 22 March 1938. Krebs later described his life in Sheffield as “19 happy years”. They had two sons, Paul and John and a daughter, Helen.

Krebs with Clementine Churchill and Frits Zernike in Stockholm in 1953. Being married to Winston, Clementine Churchill knew that a hat was desirable for such occasions, as well as gloves.

Hans Krebs became a British citizen in 1939. Krebs was elected to the Royal Society in 1947. In 1953 Hans Krebs received the Nobel Prize, jointly with Fritz Lipmann of Harvard. Krebs was given the Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research in 1953. Krebs was elected Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford, 1954–1967.  The Royal Society awarded him its Royal Medal in 1954 and Copley Medal in 1961. In 1958 Krebs received the Gold Medal of the Netherlands Society for Physics, Medical Science and Surgery. Krebs was knighted in 1958 and was elected Honorary Fellow of Girton College, Cambridge University in 1979. He was the Original Member of the Society for General Microbiology, which conferred him Honorary Membership in 1980. Hans Krebs who discovered the Krebs cycle received an honorary doctorate from 21 universities; John Krebs who discovered a paedophile ring only received 16 honorary doctorates.  However John was given a seat in the Lords, Hans just had to make do with a knighthood.

In May 2017, Krebs’s Nobel Prize medal was auctioned off for £225,000 (around $351,225). The plan was to use the proceeds to found the Sir Hans Krebs Trust which would then provide funding for doctoral students in the biomedical field and support chemists who had to flee their home countries.

The University of Oxford had a building, Hans Krebs Tower, which was occupied by the Department of Biochemistry. It has now been demolished, an action which was commemorated with a photo opportunity:

In 2008 a new building for the Department of Biochemistry was constructed, on which a plaque was placed on 20 May 2013 by the Association of Jewish Refugees. The plaque was unveiled by John, Lord Krebs, who discovered a paedophile ring and the inscription reads:

Professor Sir Hans Krebs FRS 1900 – 1981 Biochemist & discoverer of the Krebs cycle Nobel Prize Winner 1953 worked here 1954 – 1967

Hans Krebs died in 1981, so he was around to help out re the crisis involving Mr Thrope and Mary Wynch, particularly after his son had discovered a paedophile ring.

The University of Sheffield has The Krebs Institute, a biochemical research centre, founded in 1988. The Krebs Institute was founded in the year that my formal complaint about those running the paedophile ring which John Krebs discovered was finally acknowledged by the Welsh Office. It was also the year in which Tony Francis’s psychiatrist pal Dr Peter Mcguire decided that, like me, he was going to begin a career in cancer research, funded by the CRC. Peter Mcguire used his funding to take part in a huge research fraud which blew up in everyone’s faces in 1990 and resulted in the suicide of one of his colleagues, Prof Tim McElwain. See previous posts. In 1988 I was working in the CRC team in the Dept of Biochemistry at the University of Surrey, in a team led by Prof Vincent Marks, the brother of Dr John Marks, the then President of the BMA. The BMA were at war with Ken Clarke in the Dept of Health but it ended in stalemate because both parties were concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the paedophile ring which John Krebs had discovered. The BMA and Ken Clarke sank their differences for the purposes of conspiring against me, a helpful man from the BMA called A.H. Chadwick (aka Dr Andrew Chadwick) providing Tony Francis with free advice as to the best way of fitting me up for criminal offences. See previous posts.

Pity about Prof McElwain wasn’t it Ken?

By 1988, Alison Taylor had been sacked by Gwynedd County Council, but was continuing to raise her concerns about kids in care in north Wales being abused, writing to the DHSS Minister Tony Newton in Feb 1988. Alison also wrote to Carlo, but received a letter telling her that he couldn’t get involved. Carlo was Chancellor of UCNW, who’s staff were facilitating the paedophile ring which John Krebs discovered and were busy colluding with numerous people to ensure that my job with the CRC came to an end after a year. I was made redundant in March 1989 because the funding for my job had run out. Unbeknown to me, my data had been stolen by someone at Surrey and given to Prof Nicola Curtin of Newcastle-upon-Tyne University, who published it under her name on and used it to raise further funding. See previous posts.

Newcastle-upon-Tyne University was an institution which had been colluding with Dafydd et al for decades, as a result of the linked ring in the north east of England, which sent staff and children to north Wales. One enormous umbrella for Dafydd’s gang was the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Lord John Walton. In 1988, John Walton was President of the GMC and Warden of Green College, Oxford. He bagged his peerage the following year. Walton spent most of his career as a psychiatrist and neurologist at Newcastle-upon-Tyne University, with was associated with Durham University; Newcastle Medical School developed from Durham University, which kindly supplied the well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend Sir Eric Sunderland for use as Principal of UCNW, after Sir Charles Evans was finally forced to retire. By the time that Eric arrived at UCNW in 1984, he had spent many years in senior roles at Durham University. See previous posts.

In 1988, John Krebs who discovered a paedophile ring was given a Royal Society Research Professorship in the Department of Zoology at the University of Oxford.

 

In 1990 the Federation of European Biochemical Societies instituted the Sir Hans Krebs Lecture and Medal, which was endowed by the Lord Rank Centre for Research. The Society of Friends of Hannover Medical School gives the Sir Hans Krebs Prize, which is worth 10,000 euros. The Biochemical Society offers Krebs Memorial Scholarship to a PhD student working in biochemistry or an allied biomedical science at any British university. As of 2014, the scholarship is worth £18,500 and is given for a year, but is extendable up to three years.

The sex abuse ring in the north east which John Walton and pals were concealing was closely linked with the ring in Yorkshire, which of course was linked to the ring in north Wales. Jimmy Savile, the major player in the Yorkshire ring, not only visited Bryn Estyn but in 1988 had been appointed as General Manager of Broadmoor Hospital by the DoH under Thatcher. The Civil Service mandarin at the DoH with responsibility for mental health services in 1987 was Brian McGinnis, who was later banned from working with children and vulnerable people. McGinnis was succeeded by Cliff Graham, in approx 1988, but I’m not sure exactly when. Cliff Graham was just as unsuitable a person to be a Civil Service mandarin with responsibility for the mental health services as Brian McGinnis was; Cliff Graham had scored political and academic Brownie points by spending a year working with Brian Abel-Smith. See post ‘The Old Devils’. Abel-Smith has featured in my previous posts; he was the LSE state bureaucrat who designed the original flawed economic basis for the NHS, refused to admit how flawed it was and spent the next few decades concealing the crap until even he could not cope with the Top Doctors anymore. As well as telling lies about the NHS, Abel-Smith and his gay partner ran a gents boutique and spent time flying to Italy to pick up the latest gear and flogging it to rock stars. Bing Spear, the corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch mandarin, was most helpful to Dafydd’s gang with regard to oiling the wheels re the gang’s dealing and distribution of class A drugs. See previous posts.

I mentioned that Savile was initially appointed to the Broadmoor management task force by Baroness Jean Trumpington, when she was a junior Health Minister. Trumpers was a woman with many Royal links. Trumpers’ family were friends with David Lloyd George’s family, who were friends with Mr Thrope’s family…

The Secretary of State for Wales in 1988 presiding over children’s homes in north Wales which were never inspected, even after serious complaints had been made and a mental health service which just literally did whatever it wanted, breaking any law that it felt like along the way, was Peter Walker.  Peter Walker had been involved with the Tory Party since the beginning of time and as a Young Conservative in the 1950s found out about the embryonic trade in the trafficking of young people from Wales to provide sexual services to people in England. Walker got to know Beata Brookes, a UCNW graduate who worked as a social worker for Denbighshire County Council. Brookes was a paid up member of Dafydd’s gang and by the 1970s was virtually running the NHS and welfare service in north Wales. Brookes served as a Tory MEP, 1979-89 and caused the Third World War in the 1980s when she tried to bag a seat in the Commons. See previous posts.

Beata’s ambitions caused a serious rift in the Tory Party in Clwyd, because Sir Anthony Meyer, the sitting Tory MP who’s seat Beata was after, hated Brookes and challenged her dodgy practices in Court. Sir Anthony was using the services of Dafydd’s gang himself, so it was once again an everyday story of the gwerin. They all hated each other but were involved in the same criminality, which in the case of Beata and Anthony Meyer couldn’t even be sorted out by Cecil Parkinson at Conservative Central Office because he was colluding with Dafydd’s gang as well. For many years the dreadful Lord Wyn Roberts was the minion at the coal face who deflected the mountain of crap; by 1988 Wyn Roberts had written a meaningless letter in response to my very serious complaint. See previous posts for further details of the extensive mess.

Further armour plating for the paedophile ring which John Krebs discovered was provided by Tony Francis’s old acquaintance from their days as students in Cardiff, a Windbag who doubled up as Leader of the Labour Party. In 1988, the Windbag was still Leader of the Opposition rather than PM, although in his desperation to become PM after the June 1987 General Election, the dear old Windbag had remained schtum about the failed attempt to fit me up for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’. The planning had begun a few weeks before June 1987 and Dafydd et al had received the help of the Mental Health Act Commission, the Home Office with Douglas Hurd in it and Risley Remand Centre, as well as numerous people from Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities. See post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ for events leading up to all this, the aftermath and the political context of the time.

 

In a tank Herr Thatchler leads the charge; Jock Steel and Doc “Killer” Owen are helplessly entrenched; and “Fatty” Heffer looks cynically on as “Taffy” Kinnock leads the retreat.

 

On 19/4/84 Thames Television screened an interview with the Windbag conducted by Alastair Burnet, with regard to the NUM strike. The Windbag talked about the intimidation of working miners by striking miners and stressed that intimidation of anyone, under any circumstances, for any reason, is wrong. The Windbag was ignoring physical violence, sexual assault as well as the framing and murder of witnesses in north Wales. Of adults as well as children as young as 12 yrs old. The Windbag’s mate Tony Francis was at the centre of it.

Burnet’s interview also included a discussion about the Windbag’s recent criticism of Thatch’s management of the NHS. The Windbag mentioned ‘the view of the BMA, the Royal Colleges, the nursing professions and the DHSS’. He explained that they all maintained that extra funding was needed for the NHS and that the NHS was ‘very unsafe’ in Mrs Thatcher’s hands. Burnet made the point that Thatch had increased spending on the NHS. Thatch did indeed increase spending on the NHS; she didn’t want to, but she was forced to because those upstanding people in the BMA, the Royal Colleges, the nursing professions and the DHSS all knew that the Top Docs were colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Thatch simply could not do anything other than hand over the dosh and however much dosh the Top Docs demanded. Because Royal Personages were in the shag fest up to their necks.

The Windbag personally knew Dafydd, Tony Francis, as well as George Thomas, Ron Davies, Leo Abse… er Greville Janner…

Burnet’s interview covered education as well, which the Windbag claimed was his specialist area. Well he was a man with a really bad degree, married to a school teacher from north Wales where many teachers as well as every social worker and Top Doc were remaining silent about a sex abuse gang targeting kids and young people, he yelled ‘NURSES’ repeatedly in his election campaigning and summoned up the Spirit of Nye, OF COURSE education was the Windbag’s specialist area. In 1984, Gwynedd and Clwyd Education Authorities were wilfully ignoring the abuse of children, including special needs children who were targeted in particular. Since 1970, Lord Barry Jones had served as the Labour MP for East Flintshire. Lord Baz was a former teacher who trained at Bangor Normal College, of which the Deputy Principal was a friend of Dafydd’s. See previous posts eg. ‘Thought For The Day’ and ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’. Lord Baz had doubled up as the NUT rep for Flintshire. When havoc and complaint broke out regarding schools in Gwynedd in 1979, the Windbag used it to have a go at Welsh medium teaching. It was a paedophile ring that was the problem, not the Welsh language and the Windbag knew it.

As for FE, er Bangor Technical College was known to be appalling, bloody dreadful. Teachers who worked there freely admitted that they would never send their own kids there. Serious complaints, such as teachers not actually remaining in the class for most of the lesson, were deflected or blocked. The answer to all this? In 1983-84, a new name – Coleg Menai!! – and a renovation of the building, costing a great deal of money. The same useless old farts were employed, the same hopeless Principal remained and the problems continued. In June 1985, the WRONG CHEMICAL SAMPLES for analysis were given to the students in an A level chemistry practical exam, which resulted in every single student failing the A level. Coleg Menai served a purpose though. It ‘trained’ many of the social workers and NHS staff who then went out into the world to keep schtum about the gang which ran north Wales. It was still doing that in 2000 (see post ‘Social Work – Theory’). Then there was Cartrefle College, which also gave out social care/social work qualifications to the thugs who staffed the children’s homes in north Wales. The social work ‘tutors’ at Cartrefle College had a hotline to Lucille Hughes and Nefyn Dodd, the two people whom even the Waterhouse Report admitted were responsible for the abuse of children and would tip them off about any students who were potential whistleblowers. That’s still happening, in north Wales and elsewhere, on social work, nursing and teaching courses. I was identified as a potential whistleblower when I returned to education in 2000…

Cartrefle College became NEWI (the North East Wales Institute of Higher Education) – things will change if we give it a new name! – and then it became Glyndwr University! OF COURSE it would change when it became a university, although the ones who trained the child abusers were now Heads of Dept and sitting on the governing body. Glyndwr was involved in scandal after scandal until it came to the attention of the Home Office not so long ago and had its licence to educate overseas students removed because of an immigration fraud with which Glyndwr had been participating. Glyndwr of course received Investment – millions. For many years the Principal was Mike Scott, who had virtually destroyed De Montfort University when he was a PVC there, so obviously Mike Scott would be given his own university to play with. Mike Scott, back in the dark ages, had done a degree at one of the constituent colleges of the University of Wales, which was facilitating the abuse ring… See previous posts for Mike Scott-related adventures.

Lord Baz Jones was installed as Chancellor of Glyndwr University in 2009. Previously, Lord Baz had been President of NEWI; he was given that job in 2007.

Lord Baz served as the Windbag’s Shadow Secretary of State for Wales, Jan 1989-July 1992…

It wasn’t coincidental was it Windbag? Events involving Lord Baz can be read in previous posts.

 

When The Krebs Institute was founded at Sheffield University in 1988, the Home Secretary was Douglas Hurd and the Labour MP for Sheffield Brightside, who had been newly elected  in June 1987, was a source of excellent PR for the Windbag’s party in many ways. He was a man who had experienced family tragedy as a boy and was viewed as an intelligent, capable, determined man, a graduate of Sheffield University himself, who had not allowed a severe disability to prevent him from pursuing a career in politics. He also had a nice guide dog who sat next to him on ‘Question Time’ who went to sleep rather than lifted his leg on Robin Day.

Blunkett’s biography of overcoming hardship without casting himself as a victim undoubtedly endeared him to a lot of people and gained the respect of many more. He pissed off disability campaigners by refusing to identify as disabled for many years, but I can understand that position. What was so unforgivable was Blunkett keeping quiet about the widespread neglect and abuse of disabled people. Blunkett kept quiet about that criminal gang in Sheffield as well, with Jimmy Savile at the centre of it. Blunkett had known about the gang for years, because Blunkett had been elected to Sheffield City Council in 1970 and was Leader of Sheffield City Council, 1980-88 and had remained as a member of the Council until 1988. Blunkett also served on South Yorkshire County Council, 1973 -77.

Blunkett knew about Savile and the gang operating in Yorkshire and he knew that they were linked to other gangs, including the one in north Wales.

The Windbag didn’t become PM in June 1987, but Blunkett became an MP, which would not have happened had the north Wales whistleblowers not been silenced, because the Westminster Paedophile Ring would have unravelled… Alison, Mary Wynch and I were the three who did things like keep writing to the GMC and to MPs, but there were many, many complaints from people in north Wales, both about the abuse of children in care and about the mental health services. Previous posts have described how, although Dr D.G.E. Wood bellowed at me that there were no concerns about Gwynne the lobotomist, this was me being completely unreasonable, I knew of two other formal complaints about Gwynne from the parents of students. I alone knew of three students who had attempted suicide after one encounter with Gwynne, goodness knows what had gone on that I didn’t hear about. The situation was so bad, that one day when I was in the Student Health Centre being shouted at by Wood and the Angel employed there, Liz Stables and told to shut up, there were no concerns, it was just me, another student arrived to complain about Gwynne the lobotomist; Gwynne had precipitated yet another suicide attempt…

Brown and I raised our concerns about Gwynne some three weeks or so before the Windbag appeared on TV with Alastair Burnet, emphasising that intimidation of people in any context for any reason is unacceptable. We were threatened by Top Docs after we complained Windbag, overtly threatened, repeatedly…

Gwynne was a disaster, a complete disaster and that was just him on one afternoon a week in the Student Health Centre. I know that in 1987, in one month alone, the GMC received five complaints about Dafydd. Some of the complaints concerned sexual exploitation of patients and deaths.

I knew some of the other people who had complained about Dafydd and Gwynne – over the years I met many, many more – and I knew that I was being lied to when people yelled at me that there had been no other complaints.

Then there were the kids in care becoming pregnant and contracting STIs, the North Wales Police recording ‘hundreds’ of ‘absconsions’ from the children’s homes, the kids sustaining serious injuries including anal injuries…

The Windbag knew about these matters, his wife’s parents were from Holyhead and they had been active in the Labour Party for decades and had concealed the abuse themselves. Glenys’s parents were mates with Lord Cledwyn, who served as the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79 and was one of the gang’s most loyal servants. See previous posts. One couldn’t be a Councillor or politician in north Wales and not know about Dafydd and the gang.

Just to remind you once again Windbag: George Thomas, Greville Janner, Leo Abse, Ron Davies…

Other newly elected Labour MPs in June 1987 who definitely knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring as well as Dafydd and the gang included Rhodri Morgan, Paul Boateng, Diane Abbott, Keith Vaz and Red Ken. Miranda had already bagged his Sedgefield seat on the patch of the gang in the north east in 1983, having previously worked in the Chambers of George Carman QC, the crooked barrister who was mates with many of those involved in the gangs; Cherie worked in Carman’s Chambers until 1988. Carman had established his reputation when he defended Mr Thrope at the Old Bailey in 1979…

When Blunkett led Sheffield City Council it was considered by the Tories to be one of the extreme leftist councils and Blunkett a loony left leader. Although Blunkett always made a point of not overtly trading on being blind, when in debate with his opponents, they very obviously never felt able to be as rude to Blunkett as they were to other loony left politicians. In the 1980s, Blunkett said the sort of things that Tony Benn said, but even Tebbit wouldn’t put the boot into a blind man and there was always a kind comment about the guide dog.

It was all a bit ‘Peters and Lee’, the duo who appeared on ‘Opportunity Knocks’ in the 1970s. After they won, Hughie Green revealed that Peters was blind but had asked that the audience weren’t told because he didn’t want the sympathy vote. It wasn’t too difficult to guess that Peters was blind, because he wore those dark glasses that blind people used to wear in the 1970s and his singing partner led him on by the hand and just in case anyone was still in doubt, Peters ensured that he stared straight ahead of himself while he played the piano. As piss-taking students used to say ‘you’d never guess he was blind would you viewers?’ All Peters needed was the guide dog sitting by the piano, but that would have caused allegations that the clapometer had been rigged.

One can’t even make crass comments about Blunkett not seeing Jimmy Savile, because nobody else saw Jimmy Savile either…

While Blunkett served on South Yorkshire County Council, Sheffield’s steel industry declined.

  • Ian Macgregor

My post ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’ and previous posts discuss the miraculous way in which the Councillors and MPs of north east Wales, nearly all Labour, managed to extract investment for things like the Deeside Industrial Park from Thatch’s hostile Gov’t in the wake of the 6500 jobs laid off at Shotton Steel in 1980. Bryn Estyn, the Bryn Alyn Community and the North Wales Hospital Denbigh were all in north east Wales. See previous posts for details of how hard people like Lord Baz ‘fought for the people of north east Wales’ and came up with the Investment on Deeside.

I do not know enough about Sheffield to know if Blunkett performed similar miracles after the steel industry collapsed. Blunkett must have done something to have pleased someone in the Labour Party as long ago as the early 1970s, because he was selected as the candidate to fight Sheffield Hallam in 1974, although he wasn’t elected. Wilson was the Labour Leader at the time, the Wilson who was a good pal of the molester George Thomas, the Wilson who’s Minister of Health, 1964-68, Sir Kenneth Robinson, was a big mate of Dafydd’s, the Wilson who rearranged the entire furniture of Gov’t to conceal the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as described in previous posts…

When Blunkett contested Sheffield Hallam in 1974, the sitting Tory MP, Sir John Osborn, held the seat. Osborn was the MP for that constituency, 1959-87. Sir John Holbrook Osborn was educated at Rugby and Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He also served as an MEP, 1975-79. Osborn was knighted in 1983, the year that Brown and I came under attack from the gang and had members of the security services bothering us in various disguises.

Osborn’s time in Parliament dated back to the years which led up to the Profumo Affair, so he’ll have had some knowledge of the Naughtiness in High Places at that time. Bronwen Astor, Bill Astor’s wife at the time of Profumo, was the daughter of Sir Alun Pugh, a Welsh judge. The family lived in Hampstead, but Pugh was from west Wales, remained in touch with Wales and sent Bronwen to boarding school in Dolgellau. The father of Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council during the Paedophile Years, was a Master in Dolgellau Grammar School. There was one year’s difference in age between Ioan and Bronwen. Before Ioan was appointed Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, he was County Secretary of Dyfed County Council in west Wales, where an abuse ring linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales operated. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ There was an embryonic trafficking enterprise involving teenagers from Wales to England before Profumo blew up – it was this that Beata Brookes and Peter Walker tripped over in their Young Conservatives days – and Dafydd knew about this. Lord Brecon and his daughter Lindy Price, who was married to the lawyer Leolin Price, were most helpful to those facilitating the business. The organised sexploitation of young people in west Wales was in place by the time that Carlo went to Aberystwyth University for a term to brush up on Welsh in 1968. See previous posts.

John Osborn lived through the Tory Party years of Ted Heath as well as the early years of Thatch…

Osborn took part in a Parliamentary interviews project, which supplied the following additional info about him:

John Holbrook Osborn was born on 14 December 1922 in Sheffield. He was educated at Rugby School and Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and served in the war in West Africa. He married three times: Molly Suzanne in 1952; Joan Mary MacDermot in 1976; and Patricia Hine in 1989.

Osborn worked in the family business. Chairman of Hillsborough Divisional Young Conservative and Liberal Association from 1949 to 1953, he became Conservative MP for Sheffield Hallam in 1959 and held the seat until 1987. He served as Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and for the Colonies from 1963 to 1964. From 1975 to 1979 he was a Member of the European Parliament. During his time as an MP he was a member of several Select Committees, including Science and Technology and Education, Science and Arts. He was knighted in 1983, and retired from Parliament in 1987.

The transcript of the clip includes:

My decision to retire from Parliament? Oh, my Constituency Association had enough of me. Roland Jenkings [sic], before me, didn’t get the support of the Association and I didn’t get the support of the Association. I could have fought my Association and stood with their candidate as an independent and I might have gone back to Parliament on that basis. But I got advised to give up politics while the going is good. It’s no good being a Member of Parliament if your constituency is against you. Some people tried that, but usually burned their fingers and I was able to revert to old interests and old recreations. I played much more golf, much more tennis. And I retired properly.

During the interview, Osborn mentioned that he joined the Young Conservatives as soon as he left Rugby. After Cambridge and WW II, he undertook a management trainee course at the National Foundry College in Wednesbury and served an apprenticeship with a Birmingham firm. Osborn  focused on an industrial career and never set out to become an MP. He was asked to stand as a candidate in Hallam following the retirement of Sir Roland Jennings. There was a belief that the seat was unwinnable. Osborn had very little contact with Jennings, but did receive help and support from the Conservative Party. He was also helped by local benefactors.

Describes working as PPS to Duncan Sandys in Commonwealth Relations Office.

Duncan Sandys was one of those who was happy to be a patient and a friend of Stephen Ward, the osteopath who was the biggest scapegoat in the wake of the Profumo Affair, but once the shit hit the fan, Sandys was one of those who dropped Ward and did the ‘ooh I don’t think that I ever met him’ bit. Stephen Ward is always described as having committed suicide during his trial, but accounts of Ward’s death leave one with no doubt that he was given a shove by the Top Docs. See previous posts. 

During the interview Osborn explained that he hoped to pursue the interests of industry through his Parliamentary work and described travelling widely on industrial and Parliamentary business. He found it difficult to balance constituency, Parliamentary and industrial work and faced a conflict of interest between committee work in the Commons and dealing with local issues. Osborn’s maternal grandfather was a Conservative MP, Colonel Sir Arthur Holbrook. Osborn continued as a Non-Executive Director of Samuel Osborn & co, the family firm, while an MP. Osborn’s constituency felt that he was spending too much time on international travel and the constituency became a marginal seat. However, the felt that Osborn was a suitable candidate for overseas work. He never had ambition for high office and was able to pursue his own interests under both Edward Heath and Margaret Thatcher’s leadership. He never regretted the decision to retire. Osborn’s interview concluded with a comment about not having provided successor [Irvine Patnick] with advice.

Sir John Osborn died in Dec 2015. He was around a long time to keep the lid on the criminality under his nose while he did bugger all for his constituents, held multiple political jobs, as well as his business interests and did a bit of globetrotting into the bargain.

Osborn, who enjoyed himself while serious organised crime took over Sheffield, was succeeded in the seat in 1987 by Irvine Patnick, the Tory who coined the phrase ‘Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire’ for Sheffield City Council under Blunkett.

Sir Cyril Irvine Patnick was born in Sheffield and educated at the Central Technical School in Sheffield, followed by Sheffield Poly. A building contractor, Patnick entered politics as a member of Sheffield City Council in 1967 and later of South Yorkshire County Council. Patnick was elected after unsuccessfully contesting Sheffield Hillsborough at the 1970 and 1979 General Elections. During his time as an MP Patnick was a Lord Commissioner of HM Treasury and Deputy Chairman of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link Select Committee. He left politics after he lost his seat in 1997 to the Lib Dem Richard Allan.

Patnick was on the right of the Conservative Party. He was against sanctions on apartheid South Africa, voted to reintroduce the death penalty, strongly supported Section 28 and opposed reducing the age of consent for gays. 

Patnick was the Vice-President of Sheffield’s Kingfield Synagogue, life President of Sheffield Jewish Representative Council and a former national Vice-Chairman of the British Maccabi sports and youth organisation.

Patnick was the Chairman of Trustees of The Trust for Research into Freemasonry, a charity established to support the Centre for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism at Sheffield University. This Centre has now died a death; it seems to have been closed down after being embroiled in controversy and many of the links which promise to lead one to gen online are broken.

Patnick was one of the sources for ‘The Sun’ newspaper’s lies about the behaviour of fans at the Hillsborough Disaster in its coverage of April 1989. ‘The Sun’ maintained that fans had assaulted police, urinated on dead and dying fans, had ransacked their pockets and wallets etc. Kelvin MacKenzie, the Editor, robustly defended himself at the time.

In September 2012, the publication of the Report into Hillsborough by the independent panel investigating the disaster confirmed that “the source for these despicable untruths was a Sheffield news agency reporting conversations with South Yorkshire Police and Irvine Patnick, the then MP for Sheffield Hallam”. Earlier, Kelvin had said of his coverage: “It was a fundamental mistake. The mistake was I believed what an MP said”. The Daily Express also carried the story, under the headline “Police Accuse Drunken Fans” and giving Patnick’s views, saying he had told Thatch, whilst escorting her on a tour of the grounds after the tragedy, of the “mayhem caused by drunks” and that policemen had told him that they were “hampered, harassed, punched and kicked”. Following the disclosure of Patnick’s role in the story, Labour MP John Mann wrote to PM David Cameron asking that Patnick be stripped of his K for his “shameful and disgusting behaviour”. Patnick was heavily criticised by the families of the dead, with the Hillsborough Justice Campaign stating that “It needs to be remembered that this man vilified Liverpool and was part of a lying machine which shamefully damaged the reputation of those fans.” In a statement issued through the Conservative Party on 13 September 2012, Patnick accepted “responsibility for passing such information on without asking further questions. So, many years after this tragic event, I am deeply and sincerely sorry for the part I played in adding to the pain and suffering of the victims’ families”.

Sir Irvine Patnick died on 30 December 2012, without ever showing any regret in ignoring the criminal gang operating in South Yorkshire, which he knew was linked to other gangs, including to the one causing havoc in north Wales.

Patnick was awarded his K in 1994. By which time my career in medical research had been destroyed, along with those of three other witnesses to Dafydd and the gang with whom I was friends, my friend Anne had been killed, there had been an attempt to kill Brown and Brown’s brother had emigrated after being the subject of one very serious murder attempt which was followed by some others almost as serious… 

Sir Irvine Patnick

 

In 9 June 1994, Matt Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, died of ‘an unspecified blood disease’. On 13 June 1994 the trial of his long time friend and colleague Peter Howarth for sexual assaults on boys in care in north Wales opened at Chester Crown Court. On 8 July 1994 Howarth was found guilty and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.

It was during 1994, from June onward, that Dafydd’s gang once more escalated their attempts to have me declared dangerous and banged up in a secure psychiatric hospital. This followed a meeting that I and Patient F held with two members of the Mental Health Act Commission during which we told them that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that serious complaints against him were not being investigated. Both of them told us that they had heard such complaints about Dafydd many times before and as long ago as the 1960s. Neither the MHAC or Gwynedd Community Health Trust ever investigated our complaints. The MHAC did write to the Trust but failed to act when the Trust failed to investigate or respond appropriately.

In early Nov 1994, Dafydd had obtained a High Court injunction against me from Liverpool High Court on the basis of an affidavit which contained not one true allegation of my ‘harassment’ of him. All allegations referred to phone calls that F had made to Dafydd in which he certainly took the piss, but were not threatening. The only allegation relating to me was that I had thrown a brick through the glass door of Dafydd’s house at 3 am one night. I had not and by the time that Dafydd swore his affidavit into Court, he had been told by an Angel that I could not possibly have been at his house at 3 am that night because I had no access to a car and I was known to have been at my house near Bethesda throughout the night. Since I began this blog I have been told that no-one threw a brick through Dafydd’s door, the brick was planted and the police were subsequently called and told that I was the culprit. Dafydd was not asked to provide any evidence at all that I was responsible, by the police or by the MDU or the MDU lawyers Hempsons who acted for Dafydd. I did not even know that I had been accused until just before the High Court injunction was served on me.

Dafydd also demanded that an alarm system costing £25k be fitted in his office because of the danger that I represented to him. After I wrote to the Trust yet again asking them to investigate my complaint into the constant harassment and lies of Dafydd and others, the response of the Chairman of the Trust was to ask the Trust’s lawyers if there were any more charges that they could bring against me.Tony Francis then demanded a series of reports from forensic mental health specialists with regard to me on the grounds that I was a danger to Dafydd’s life and should be transferred to a secure unit The idea being that this would be done under the Mental Health Act, because those very public Court cases with me on trial involving the obvious perjury on behalf of Dafydd’s gang were becoming rather embarrassing…Although I was so mad that I was in need of being placed in a secure unit, at the same time I was banned from the day centre at the Hergest Unit. Well the other patients there had read that ridiculous injunction and one of them, Dave Nunn, a former lecturer from UCNW, had disappeared shortly after and no-one ever saw him again. See previous posts eg. ‘The Banality Of Evil’…

My post ‘Additional Security Measures’ discussed the first Report re Hillsborough, the Taylor Report, by Lord Peter Taylor, who served as Lord Chief Justice, 1992-96. Thatcher’s Gov’t asked Taylor to write the Report immediately after the Hillsborough Disaster. I discussed discrepancies with regard to dates on the Home Office file and the documents, a note to Douglas Hurd from Sir Clive Whitmore, the Permanent Secretary to the Home Office at the time, which suggests that Peter Taylor is being given advice on what to include in his Report and the fact that the Report which was submitted is not actually signed by Peter Taylor. I can only conclude that Peter Taylor either didn’t write that Report or that someone has been playing fast and loose with dates on documents. An incriminating note from Sir Clive was sent to, among others, David Lidington, Hurd’s special adviser at the Home Office, who then moved with Hurd to the Foreign Office. So Lidington was in the Home Office when Dafydd, Tony Francis et al were forging documents and perjuring themselves in their attempts to have me imprisoned and the Home Office, North Wales Police and Risley Remand Centre were assisting in all this. David Lidington is a member of Theresa May’s Gov’t.

Blunkett, John Osborn and Irvine Patnick were all local to Sheffield and had lived there for many years, as far back as the 1950s. Readers might remember that Savile’s True Story involved him ‘inventing the disco’ ie. running dance halls and clubs in Yorkshire in the 1950s, which evolved into the Swinging Scene of the 1960s and then the Fuckwittery of the 1970s. After Savile died and it was obvious to even the most loyal of the Mafia of Drips that he was definitely not coming back and he was not going to get George Carman QC – who was also safely dead – to sue the arse off everyone, people began to quietly creep out of the woodwork and admit that Savile ‘wasn’t a very nice man’, that he beat the living daylights of of people at his dances and discos and he did have some unfortunate past-times which involved children or young people locked in places and therefore unable to get away from him.

Esther maintained that She Didn’t Know, in the face of all the others who Never Knew but suddenly remembered that they did know and then the world rose up and demanded that Savile’s grave was removed! That his body should not be Next To Decent People! That all those Commemorative Plaques should Go! Delete those old vids of Top of the Pops, Savile is on them!

It was Rolf next… We don’t want to see Rolf’s name anywhere! It’s disgusting!

What a load of fucking hypocrites. Now, I am waiting for Dafydd to die. Because when Dafydd Passes Over, I know that we will begin to hear just how terrible he was from people who knew him. We are going to hear some very, very unpleasant things. And I do not want to be told by any of those people that they are Sorry or Didn’t Know. I have been telling you all for years and so have other people. We have been sacked, smeared, violently assaulted and people have tried to kill us. If anyone tries to prosecute anyone else for crimes relating to me, I will do my best to derail the trial. Because what has gone on is disgusting and I don’t want anyone to do the Bring Them To Justice bit. They can’t be brought to justice, they were allowed to rape and kill people, including children and they received the full support of the British state. What I want is for someone to recover those bodies from the grounds of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Then I want the BMA, the GMC and the Royal Colleges to explain how those bodies got there. This should be followed by the dissolution of every one of those bodies and the removal of all powers from the medical profession. No more money either. The Top Docs are going to go on strike? Let them. They are a public danger, let that fucking dreadful profession go on strike, sack those that do and keep a skeleton workforce of good brave docs who are appalled at what has been allowed to go on.

There’s a lot of politicians who need to go as well because you haven’t really behaved very nobly have you…

 

 

Blunkett became a Party spokesman on local gov’t, joined the Shadow Cabinet in 1992 as Shadow Health Secretary and became Shadow Education Secretary in 1994.

After Labour’s 1997 General Election Blunkett became Secretary of State for Education and Employment. The role of Education Secretary was a vital one in Miranda’s Gov’t, after Miranda famously stated in 1996 that his priorities were “education, education, education”. As Secretary of State, Blunkett pursued conservative reforms, was ready to take on the teaching unions and determined to ensure basic standards of literacy and numeracy. Blunkett stated that he would ensure that more kids would achieve above the average level in maths. Which had every maths teacher rolling in the aisles, because it was clear that Blunkett didn’t understand the definition of average.

Blunkett: more kids CANNOT achieve above the average level in maths. If more kids achieve a higher level in maths, the average itself will be raised. That is the point of an average. You cannot have a situation in which MORE achieve the AVERAGE. Not even with New Labour fiddling the stats.

A key pillar of Blunkett’s work as Education Secretary was the introduction of Sure Start, a Gov’t programme much loved by Polly Toynbee which provided services for pre-school children and their families. In 2011 the Gov’t effectively started the abolition of Sure Start by cutting back drastically on the funds available. Polly protested that these Cuts would harm disadvantaged children because it had been Proven that Sure Start Helps Disadvantaged Children. No, every analysis of Sure Start demonstrated that it had absolutely no effect on any of the parameters measured – the parameters were the ones that Sure Start had been established to Help – with regard to children. What Sure Start was very good at was providing social support to some disadvantaged mothers. It did them a great deal of good and they loved it. It wasn’t however designed to do that. There was also a problem with Sure Start in that more advantaged women enrolled because they too wanted the goodies on offer…

In north Wales, Sure Start, like everything, was hijacked by Dafydd’s gang. Because it involved contact with those we know and love, the most disadvantaged mothers wouldn’t go near it. However, there was a group of vulnerable but tame young women who did make use of Sure Start and I knew some of them. They were approached and asked if they’d like to train as social workers! They had never imagined that they could have any sort of career, so they went for it. After they qualified, they found that if they raised concerns about the endemic abuse and neglect of clients, they would be reminded of the father of their children who had a drug problem or their own hard time when their baby was born and they became ill with severe post-natal depression and they really wouldn’t like this to become widely known would they? Sure Start provided Dafydd’s gang with a supply of nice caring young women who did not dare step out of line and blow the whistle on the most dreadful malpractice. Not even the blackmail of themselves. None of them will ever receive promotion… I suspect that by now, they will have had breakdowns with the stress of working with gangsters and abusers or left the carnage and moved into other jobs.

Blunkett also led the massive expansion in HE. Education, Education, Education. Anyone who worked in HE while Blunkett, Lord Adonis and Miranda put their grandiose plan into action and since then knows the truth behind the cooked books and the lies about ‘excellence’. HE is not quite as bad as the NHS, but if someone doesn’t do something soon it will be. I’m not going to even go here, because Brown and I published extensively on the subject and I’ll never finish the blog post if I go off at this particular tangent. To summarise, Miranda was told by sound academic sociologists that It Wouldn’t Work and indeed it didn’t. Miranda wouldn’t listen and just told lies and now Miranda’s mate Lord Adonis who wouldn’t listen either and just told lies, has admitted that It Didn’t Work and perhaps Miranda’s Reforms should be undone…

I quickly scanned an article yesterday on ‘The Guardian’ online maintaining that if Oxbridge wants to increase its proportion of disadvantaged students, then it Needs A College Especially For Them. Er, weren’t some Oxbridge colleges established for that very purpose anyway? The fact that they are not full of proles suggests that if yet another Oxbridge College For The Disadvantaged is established, that too will go the same way as the others… UCNW likes to think that it was established for the Children Of The Quarrymen. That was part of the rationale, indeed there were scholarships available and there was a desire to see the children of aspiring but unprivileged people receive a university education, but most of the students were drawn from the more privileged groups in Wales at the time. They won’t have been as grand as most of the students at Oxbridge, but UCNW wasn’t heaving with the children of those who occupied the worst jobs in the quarry. The children of the quarry owners or managers might well have been among the student body in greater numbers…That is how class domination works.

UCNW was radical in that it admitted a very big proportion of women as compared to other universities at the time, but no matter what Jane Hutt believes, virtually all those women will only have been radical in that they supported women like themselves to gain a university education. Not many will have been fighting for the servants to bag a degree. It is why university expansion was embraced in the 1960s, so all those people who hadn’t previously gone to university could have a greater chance…After the 1960s expansion in HE, the proportion of people in the relevant age cohort going to university rose to almost 10%… There still weren’t that many children of quarrymen among them, but there were more than before.

 

Blunkett’s ignorance with regard to education and social sciences hasn’t held him back.

In July 2013, Sheffield University announced that Blunkett had become a Visiting Professor in the Department of Politics, in the world’s first Centre for the Public Understanding of Politics. In 2014, Blunkett was invited to become a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. In May 2015 Blunkett accepted a Chair in Politics in Practice at Sheffield University. In June 2015 Blunkett agreed to become Chairman of the Board of the University of Law. In addition to his other work with charidees, Blunkett was also Chairman of the David Ross Multi Academy Charitable Trust from June 2015 to January 2017. In 2017 Blunkett received an Honorary Doctorate for services to Gov’t and Education from the University of Huddersfield.

Blunkett introduced the teaching of citizenship in schools in 1999, arguing that “We want to ensure
